Track Name: Romeo and Juliet (Sun Go Down)
ROMEO AND JULIET (SUN GO DOWN)
(P. Clark)
Maybe some time when your heart’s in the right place we can try to work this out • I’m not a fool who demands your attention • Take your time, you’ll make your way around • And I’m never gonna give up • On the two of us • There’s never been something so rare and true • I could spend a lifetime waiting on and on and on • And never find one like me and you CHORUS And I’m thinkin’ Romeo and Juliet never knew love this way I bet • Heaven you got me spinnin’ round • Just to drink your love on down • Romeo and Juliet never knew love like this I bet • Kisses weigh in by the pound • Love until the sun go down • Yeah, until the sun go down • Yeah, until the sun go down • Yeah, until the sun go down VERSE Feel like I’m stuck between a stone and a tight place every time you come around • Losin’ my grip as I’m keeping my distance • Beat of my heart begins to pound • And I’m all mixed up In a blur and a whiz • Hoping you’ll give yourself over to me • There’s no need to fear, my love will soon be here • Just take my hand and I’ll set you free BRIDGE I’ve found somebody to raise my head again • Now that I’m your one and only loverman • You can believe it • Come morning, noon, and night • I’ll be there for you baby, treat you right • You’ll never ever have to fall in love again SOLO
Track Name: The Only Woman on the World
THE ONLY WOMAN ON THE WORLD
(P. Clark, N. Sebastian)
Hey Baby • I’m sure that I can give you the answers to the questions you seek • My darlin’ • If that won’t be too easy, fire ‘em away at me. • I’ve waited so long I’ve got to tell you about the love that makes my body beat • My only • You are my destination, after all these years can’t we finally be free • BRIDGE But maybe I’ll hurt you, or say something so cruel to turn your love away • Those men will desert you • I’ve seen it a thousand times • ‘Cause baby I cling to a sweet vision in my mind where you will always stay • And baby I plead you • That if you’ll just come a’runnin’ to my love • As long as you’re around me I • I’ll treat you like the only woman on the world • And bathe in your glory • Remind you why the lord above made you a girl • You mean that much to me • You mean that much to me • There are men that you can read just like an open book • But I’m tellin’ you the story • And in your eyes I see the only woman on the world • When you make love to me • When you make love to me • SAX • VERSE Hey listen, I’ve tried to keep my distance but that’s not what I’m willin’ to do • My angel, you’ve been so far away, now you’ve come into view • Don’t worry • No one is gonna love you quite like I can. I won’t turn away • I’m comin’ to fix your hesitation, darlin’ you have found a good man today • Not one who will beat you • It’s easier for you to turn my love away • But I’ll never mistreat you • I’ve been there a thousand times • ‘Cause baby I cling to a sweet vision in my mind where we will always play • And baby I plead you that if you’ll just come a’runnin’ to my love • As long as you’re around me I • CHORUS
Track Name: Free My Mind
FREE MY MIND
(P. Clark)
Clean off these dusty keys and give my life a whirl • I’m livin’ in a better day for all the boys and the girls • Put all my mind into it • Now all I gotta do is do it • To try to free this thing my past has put in chains • Walk proud like a real man, get on my feet again • That all there really is to it • Gotta put a smile on my face and do it • BRIDGE Gray skies on a sunny day • Why’d I hurt myself for so long • Tellin’ them to go away • ‘Cause I know my will is so strong, still strong • Gonna keep on goin’ ‘til the end of time • I’m just gonna free my • CHORUS I’m gonna free my mind • From the shackles and the chains that bind • I’m gonna free my mind • From the shackles and the chains that bind • And if my heart is cold • God be willing that my soul is tight • I’m gonna free my mind • From the shackles and the chains that bind • VERSE No honest soul can disagree that all of us deserve to be free, my baby • Or the love that I feel for you, my lady • Put all my soul into it • And figured out a way to take the pain and undo it • To try to free this thing my past has cast in chains • Keep an eye on my backside, and learn how to love again • That’s all there really is to it • If I’ve got the courage to get through it • BRIDGE Searching for the reasons why • Why’d I turn my back for so long • Keep your head up to the sky • Until you know your will is so strong, still strong • Never ever gonna let the child inside me die • CHORUS

THINKIN’ BOUT YOU
(P. Clark)
So I’m thinkin’ bout you • Dreamin’ bout you • You know that I can’t call it over • And I’m thinkin’ bout you • Dreamin’ bout you • You know that I can’t call it over • VERSE There will never be another answer for it • Feel I’m resigned to the fact that I can’t get my vision back • No matter which way that the fates take me • I vowed and ventured to be on my own • Honey don’t you know it • Born with a restless heart, and a bad reputation • Will I ever make my station, baby • Stuck in a tricky part, alone naturally • Will ever break free, whoa • And then you came in out of nowhere • I wasn’t even looking though you seemed so familiar • So together again for the first time • I simply thought that I would be your friendI’m nothing if not a gentleman • PRE-CHORUS Thinkin’ about the one who matters to me • Thinkin’ bout you, thinkin’ bout me baby (baby) • ‘Cause you are the one I want • No need to stay here on my own • To go home every night alone so I’m thinkin • CHORUS • BRIDGE I’m thinkin’ about you every night and every day • While my thoughts are givin’ way • To the plans that I am schemin’, am I hopin’ or am I dreamin’ • Am I beggin’ or am I lyin’ • If you hear me, hear me cryin’ • VERSE See I’m alone every night and I’m thinkin’ bout you • And I toss and I turn and I dream about you • And I just can’t get over the fact • That I’m gettin’ older as the days attack • My mind is drowning in the thought of ya • Gotta tell you how I feel inside • I just gotta show it • PRE-CHORUS Thinkin’ about the one who matters to me • Thinkin’ bout you, thinkin’ bout me baby (baby) • ‘Cause you are the one I want • Can’t stay here waistin’ all my time • I’ve got to tell you what’s on my mind • CHORUS

GRANTED
(P. Clark)
I never really wanted to be the one to break it to you • But you ain’t acting like you used to baby anymore • And every time that we come to even talk about it • You won’t play along • But I try to be strong • Seems you’ve been looking to push the limits of my trust • I try to love you baby even though you break my heart • I even started to think you loved me all along • But I guess I was wrong • CHORUS • You took a good thing for granted • And now it’s gone • Now it’s gone • You took a good thing for granted • And now it’s gone • Now it’s gonee • VERSE You said you were the woman of my life • Now your words go through me like a knife • I gave myself completely, what’d you think I did this for • Say that your being up-front, although I really doubt it • I’ve known you too long • I’m talkin’ about saying what you feel • Are we broken up, go on and tell me the deal • ’Cause you oughta know • You had me starting to think loved me all along • Go on and prove me wrong ‘cause you let a good thing go • CHORUS • SOLO
Track Name: It's Only Love
IT’S ONLY LOVE
(P. Clark)
All I ever wanted was the comfort of a good friend • Not to be responsible for who it was or how it ended • You made a fool of me • I made a fool of you • Now it’s a done deal • Now I hear you bitchin’ how you couldn’t stand me last week • I could retaliate, but I will turn the other cheek • I suppose you hate me now • Well, excuse me for lovin’ • Or do I mean livin’? • CHORUS It’s only love • It’s not the two of us • It’s only love • There is no reason to get so upset • It’s only love • It’s not the two of us • And I don’t wanna fight no more • It’s only love • VERSE One year ago, baby, it just seemed like the thing to do • Didn’t want to hurt no one, especially no a girl like you • We made the perfect home • Then we tore it in two • Now tell me what’s real • You always made the rules, well guess who’s got their own rules no • My self-respect and I will never lose it anyhow • Still don’t wanna be a friend • Well excuse me for livin’ • Or do I mean lovin’ • CHORUS
Track Name: Twenty Days
TWENTY DAYS
(P. Clark)
Every time you walk on, you walk offI feel my heart sink deeper into my chest • And I turn cold from the fear of rejection you put on me • Never turn your eyes to see me • I’ve got a rule about the girls on the subway • I try to keep it under control • But I need to talk to you before I blow • ‘Cause it’s been twenty days that I’ve said nothin’ in a row • Twenty Days • CHORUS Twenty days that I’ve been dreamin’ bout you mornin’, noon and night • When I’m shivering in the evening and nothing’s going right • And I’m losin’ all my rhythm, doing the best I can • I would walk around the world just to be your man • Twenty days • Twenty days • Twenty days • VERSE And every time I see those doors close behind you • I feel like a rat in a maze and I’m watchin’ all of my steps • Wondering if I’ll ever have the courage to talk to you • Do you wanna talk to me to? • I fell in love with a girl that I met on a train • And ever since that day I know • That I need to talk to you before I blow • ‘Cause it’s been twenty days that I’ve said nothin’ in a row • Twenty days • CHORUS • BRIDGE I never had a love so bad I had to grab it • But still I’m scared to talk to you • They say in twenty-one days it becomes a habit • One more and I may as well be through • SOLO • BRIDGE • CHORUS
Track Name: Loverman
LOVERMAN
(P. Clark)
It was a dark day, last Friday • Rain was hammering down • I bought a bottle of wine, we drank a glass or two • But nothing’s made sense, since Sunday • Said I can’t come around • Now I’ve been trying to work out what came over you • I have been devoted to your cause for quite a while • And I would like to think we made a happy pair • But there is something going round inside the back of my mind • And if you’ll hear my thoughts, I have a few to share • PRE-CHORUS You see never before have I seen such a lady • Make me go out of my head if I weren’t already crazy • Do you realize this feeling hangs over the two of us • And do I try to make you understand • CHORUS I wanna be your Loverman • Just to hold you and to guide you • There’s no way I will not try to be your Loverman • Just to please you and protect you for no other will affect you • Be your Loverman • I wanna be you Loverman • Gotta be your Loverman • Just to show you I can • VERSE Now it’s a hard day, next Friday • Not a cloud in the air • I take a walk in the park and chill an hour or two • Still trying to make sense of Sunday • Rain in my eyes, you don’t care • I can’t believe I would just be written off by you • PRE-CHORUS Because never before have I seen such a lady • But I am not gonna hang out and let your reasons play me • Do you realize this feeling hangs over the two of us • And do I try to make you understand • CHORUS • IRIE
Track Name: Place Where We Belong
PLACE WHERE WE BELONG
(P. Clark)
Darlin angel, in your lips you paint your freedom • You cover them in scarlet for the world to recognize • All for the chance to find me following • The illusions of the times that you dropped me to my knees • How love was so blind • I call you Rachel in the middle of the evening • Say you’ve got better things to do than to waste your time alive • All for a boy who comes from the wrong side of town • Am I sure to tell you lies? Well I guess we’ll never see • How it was so right • CHORUS Now we could search the whole world over and we’re still not traveled enough • But I’m losing my ability to stay strong • So tell me is it black, or is it white? • Am I wrong, or could I once be right? • It’s the best of my intentions steering me wrong • Cause we all search for a place where we belong • VERSE And now you’re ancient, at least that’s what your mirror’s tellin’ you • You wasted all your life away persuing Mr. Right • Now your a faded rose, ain’t it fast how life goes, • And the sands of Father Time have you dropped down to your knees • But will I ever cross your mind? • CHORUS • SOLO
