After the Rain tracks

Lyrics

1. (CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT YOUR) LOVE AND AFFECTION

Here she comes, just like an angel
Seems like forever that she's been on my mind
But nothing has changed
She thinks I'm a waste if her time
There she goes, she don't know what she's missing
Can't she see I'll never give up the fight
I'll do all I can till she understands my desire
I'm on the outside looking in
Let me into your heart, oh
There's nothing on earth that
Should keep us apart
I can't live without your love and affection
I can't face another night on my own
I'd give up my pride to save me from being alone
‘Cause I can't live without your love
So I wait, here for an answer
And wonder if tomorrow will be like yesterday
I'll keep holding on
But I can't go on living this way
I've been on the outside looking in
Bring these tears to an end, oh
I realize there's no use for me to pretend
Oh yeah
I can't live without your love and affection
I can't face another night on my own
I'd give up my pride to save me from being alone
‘Cause I can't live without your love
For your love
I'd put my arms around you
For your love
I'd find the strength to tell you
Chorus:
I can't live without your love and affection
I just can't go on this way anymore
As hard as I try there's one thing that I know for sure
I can't live without your love
I can't live without your love




2. I CAN HARDLY WAIT

No use pretending, lets tell it like it is
You just took advantage when I gave all I had to give
After one too many battles I got tired of the fight
Each time we were together was just like walking on thin ice
Couldn't make it happen, no matter how I tried
Decided it's impossible to keep you satisfied
Our love was like a candle slowly dyin' in the wind
You can't hold on when the feelings gone now we've finally
Reached the end
I step out of the darkness and leave it all behind
Ooh, now I'm ready for a brand new life
Oh, I can hardly wait
Gonna find another love, gonna start to live again
Oh, I can hardly wait
For somebody new to get into
I can hardly wait
Don't need the pressure I refuse to play the game
I won't be around to jump next time you call my name
I'll take my chances, I'll take it day by day
Let the curtain fall I'm out of love, that's all
Now there's nothing left to say
Learning from the changes got my feet back on the ground
Ooo, nothing's ever gonna stop me now
Oh, I can hardly wait
Gonna find another love, gonna start to live again
Oh, I can hardly wait
For somebody new to get into
I can hardly wait
Moving on, down the road of life
I'm looking forward to what it is I'll find
The best is yet to come
And I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
Gonna find another love, gonna start to live again
Oh, I can hardly wait
For somebody new to get into
I can hardly wait




3. AFTER THE RAIN

Look in the mirror girl, by now you should know
You're living in a fantasy, and you can't let go
He never really loved you from the start
The only thing he ever gave you was a broken heart
Don't be afraid to lose what was never meant to be
After the rain washes away the tears
And all the pain
Only after the rain
Can you live again
I know the emptiness you feel inside
You're thinking if you break away, you'll never survive
I'm waiting as my heart beats just for you
Come on and take my hand and I'll pull you through
But things will never change until you want them to
After the rain washes away the tears
And all the pain
Only after the rain
Can you live again
You'll see the sun appear to light the way
Only after the rain
Can you hope to find true love again
He never really loved you from the start
The only thing he ever gave you was a broken heart
Come on and take my hand and I'll pull you through
You know the time has come for you to face the truth
After the rain washes away the tears
And all the pain
Only after the rain
Can you live again
You'll see the sun appear to light the way
Only after the rain
Can you hope to find true love again
After the rain




4. ONLY TIME WILL TELL

Hello my friend, sure has been awhile
I don't know where the time has gone, but I've really missed your smile
It's been too long
I got so much to say, that I don't know where to start
Ever since we went our seprate ways
There's been a big hole in my heart
(But) as I recall, it was you that said goodbye
Now you're asking me to give it one more try
Well only time will tell
If you're gonna stand beside me through both heaven and hell
I wanna know that you're behind me
But only time will tell
If what we have together's gonna last forever more
And so my friend, I hope you understand
It's hard to put my trust in you
'Cause I'm afraid you'll leave again
I want to believe, that you've finally seen the light
That you've missed my love and you want to make it right
But only time will tell
If you're gonna stand beside me through both heaven and hell
I wanna know that you're behind me
But only time will tell
If what we have together's gonna last forever more
I got no way of knowing
what the future's gonna bring
So I'll just listen to my heart
Cause it's never lied to me
And what is meant to be
Only time will tell
If you're gonna stand beside me through both heaven and hell
I wanna know that you're behind me
But only time will tell
If what we have together's gonna last forever more
Time will tell
Do you believe in me
Time will tell
If we're gonna be together
Only time will
I want a love to last forever
Time will tell
Only time will tell




5. MORE THAN EVER

Do I
Do I love you baby
YeahYeahYeahYeah
More than ever
I remember all I wanted in a lover
Was just a pretty face but all I found were hearts of stone
Spent a lifetime
On the road to nowhere till I found my way back home
You gave me shelter from the cold and the rain - whoa and
Now I know pleasure where there used to be pain
Do I
Do I love you baby
YeahYeahYeahYeah
More than ever
Do I do I need you baby
YeahYeahYeahYeah
More than ever
You saved me with warmth and understanding
You're everything that I could ever want
And after so long we're standing here together
And forever we'll live on
In time most other loves just wither and fade, I tell ya
Ours just gets stronger each and every day
Do I
Do I love you baby
YeahYeahYeahYeah
More than ever
Do I do I need you baby
YeahYeahYeahYeah
More than ever
Hey-come over here for a second...
I got something I wanna say...
Even though I may not think to tell you every day...
Ooh, I'm so happy you're still mine!
Oh, you came along with a love so sweet, took me by surprise
Knocked me off my feet
You still send shivers up and down my spine
Oh I gotta be the luckiest man alive
(Chorus)




6. (ITS JUST) DESIRE

It might be the way you move that keeps me up at night
Or the outline of your silhouette when you step into the light
Is it in the things you say or the message in your eyes
The urgency you feel from me, cannot be denied
I wanted freedom, not some ball and chain
But now I feel like giving in
And I know whats to blame
It's just desire burning up my heart
I never want to let this feeling go
It's just desire
That makes me want to love you
All night long
I fel like there's a spell on me
That words just can't describe
It hit me like a ton of bricks,
Right between the eyes
I swore I'd never take the fall
Now I'm hanging on the edge
Could you be my destiny
Or something I'll regret
This temptation just whets my appetite
I ain't hungry for no lasting thing
It's clear to me tonight
It's just desire burning up my heart
I never want to let this feeling go
It's just desire
That makes me want to love you
All night long
All right!
Come on baby, oh, whoa,
I don't know what possesses me
But every time you're next to me
I just can't control myself
When it comes to you I'm driven by desire
I want my freedom, not some ball and chain
But now I feel like giving in and I know whats to blame




7. FILL YOU UP

You can't deny it
It's the same empty feeling, day after day
You've been waiting forever
For someone to come and take you away
I understand how it feels to be lonely
Like it's you against the world
But if you come take my hand we can face it together
Oh I give you my word
I can take you to heaven
Come along for the ride
Let me fill you up with love tonight
Give you all of my love
Fill you up and make you come alive
I know you feel like giving up
But now, is the time
To open up your wings and fly high
So let me fill you up with love tonight
I know it ain't easy
It seems out of reach and beyond your control
But don't you give up on dreaming
Don't settle for less when you want so much more
Open your eyes up to what you've been missing
Life's been passing you by
But if you follow your heart it will all come together
So stop your cying
Oh, I can lead you to heaven
Come along for the ride
(Chorus)




8. EVERYWHERE I GO

Yesterday a sad goodbye
I told you that it wouldn't be for long
But it seems like a thousand years since I've been gone
Oh, what I'd give to hold you in my arms
Can't you see how much I need you tonight
I'm going crazy girl, can't get you off of my mind
Everyday that I live without you
I just can't help but dream about you
Everywhere I go
And after all the love that I've left behind me
You're the one I keep inside me
Everywhere I go....I get that feeling
It's hard to be so far apart
When thoughts of you keep coming on so strong
I picture you in every face I see
Now I know I left a part of me back home with you
There's nothing like falling for the very first time
I won't forget you girl, for the rest of my life
Everyday that I live without you
I just can't help but dream about you
Everywhere I go
And after all the love that I've left behind me
You're the one I keep inside me
Everywhere I go
I get that feeling...
Everywhere I go
I get that feeling
You're with me everywhere I go
Everyday that I live without you
I just can't help but dream about you
Everywhere I go
And after all the love that I've left behind me
You're the one I keep inside me
Everywhere I go
So when you're feeling lonely baby keep on shining
You'll always be here right beside me
Everywhere I go




9. BITS AND PIECES

What are you crying for
Don't you know that your falling tears are just a thin disguise
Baby I'm on to you
Always pleading your innocence with those guilty eyes
Hanging by a thread for your love to come around
But now the ties are broken
I'm crashing to the ground
Can't you see, my heart's in bits and pieces
It comes as no surprise after all your lies
I was a fool to believe in those empty tears you cried
How long was it going on
Could it be you were deceiving me, right from the start
I'll never forget the day I came back just to find you in someone
Else's arms
I let the passion blind when the truth was plain to see
You made the chains that bind me and I just can't break free
Can't you see my heart's in bits and pieces
It comes as no surprise after all your lies
I was a fool to believe in those empty tears you cried
Oh can't you see, our love's in bits and pieces
A nightmare coming true, all because of you
Now that the promise is broken, there's nothing left to lose
Little bits and pieces
After all your lies
I was a fool to believe you
My heart's in bits and pieces
Hanging by a thread for your love to come around
But now the ties are broken, I'm crashing to the ground
(Chorus)




10. WILL YOU LOVE ME?

I always will remember- those sultry desert nights
(Our) hearts burning with a passion- whoa, it's never felt so
Right
It was meant to last forever- but when I reached out you were
Gone
It's taken time to mend this broken heart and forget you done me
Wrong
Now you're back after all this time
You've rewakened all the feelings that I've tried so hard to
Hide- but baby-
Will you love me like you loved me yesterday?
That's all I need to know
Will you love me like you loved me yesterday?
Or will you just let me go?
We could leave the pain behind us- take a shot at love again-
We could fool ourselves believing that our love would never end-
I've been missing you- whoa- what should I do?
Did you really have a change of heart or are you playing me for a
Fool?
You don't have to tell me where you've been
But there is one thing I've gotta know before I let you in- baby-
(Chorus)
