1. A GIRL LIKE THAT

Well she looks just like a vision from heaven
When she smiles at him that way.
But if she knew what he's been up to I wonder what she'd say
And it really makes me mad
That he don't know what he has
Oh yeah,
What I wouldn't give to wake up in the arms of a girl like that
Oh yeah,
I was born to live in the ever-lovin' heart of a girl like that
And I may be out of line
But I wish that she was mine
Oh yeah, I would own the world if I owned the heart of a girl...
A girl like that
Well it's hard believin' that angel's not seeing
Right through his thin disguise
And I'd love to tell her I'd love her better if she'd only let me try
And it's drivin' me insane
That she don't even know my name
Oh yeah,
What I wouldn't give to wake up in the arms of a girl like that
Oh yeah,
I was born to live in the ever-lovin' heart of a girl like that
And I may be out of line
But I wish that she was mine
Oh yeah, I would own the world if I owned the heart of a girl...
A girl like that
Yeah, the thought has crossed my mind
That the truth may be unkind
And my one love's passed me by
As I watch her walk away
Oh yeah,
What I wouldn't give to wake up in the arms of a girl like that
Oh yeah,
I was born to live in the ever-lovin' heart of a girl like that
And I may be out of line
But somehow someday, I'll find a way of makin' her mine
Oh yeah, I would own the world if I owned the heart of a girl...
A girl like that
Oh yeah, I would own the world if I owned the heart of a girl...
A girl like that
Oh yeah, What I wouldn't give if I owned the heart of a girl...
A girl like that
Oh yeah, What I wouldn't give for the heart of a girl...
A girl like that




2. I WOULD IF YOU WANT ME TO

Since the very first time when your eyes met mine I've been making a habit of crossing the line
I want you-do you want me too? Well, do ya?
Since your push came to shove I'm a fool for your love-going way too far just isn't enough
I want you-do you want me too?
Would I give in if it's ever a tie?
Would I take the fall if you're caught in a lie?
Would I always jump then say, "How high?"
Well I have to admit I'm a lunatic-acting crazy for you, I'm committed to it
I want you-do you want me too?
I was Jeckyll, now I'm Hyde-yeah dignity-wise I got plenty of room left to swallow more pride
Just say, "I do"... that you want me too
Would I be the steel between you and a gun?
Would I be the glue when you're comin' undone?
Would I always swear you look much too young?
I would if you want me to
Would I cut a deal when you're payin' your dues?
Would I vote no on my right to choose?
Would I throw away my walkin' shoes?
I would if you want me to
I would if you want me to

To tell you the truth there ain't no use denying you're my what, when, where and why
Put me to the test and I'll put to rest any doubt in your mind
Would I get real when you're being a fake?
Would I counter every bad move you make?
Would I let you have all the time you could take?
I would if you want me to
Would I take you home when you've got nowhere to go?
Would I call the cops when you're stealing the show?
Would I knock you down when the bombs gonna blow?

I would if you want me to
I would if you want me to
I would if you want me to




3. LIFE

Life
Will go on without me
Take it and you'll see it doesn't matter
Life
I know what your game is
You take it and trade it for another

Life
Before you're over
I want something to show for all my trouble

Time come on in
I want you back again
Where're you goin' now?
I thought you'd know somehow...
Life
If you keep goin'
I'll try to throw in a little love
Life
I can't do without you
There's something about you that keeps me goin'

Life
I don't wanna stop now
I've been through so much now because of you

Tell me life...what are you here for?
Tell me life...I wanna know more
Tell me life...what are we here for?




4. SHE SHEILA

Who's that on my radio?
Who's that on my new TV?
Who's that on my stereo?
Sheila is invading me
She Sheila's in my mind
The way she looks at me she might as well be blind
She Sheila's in my head
And when I talk to her I lie alone in bed
Pictures all around me
Pictures of her everywhere
She's the picture of my dreams
Picture perfect picture stare
She Sheila's in my mind
The way she looks at me she might as well be blind
She Sheila's in my head
An when I talk to her I lie alone in bed

(Chorus)




5. SOMEONE LIKE YOU

When we said hello did my feelings show?
I know you didn't mean to break my heart
But when you left, it tore my world apart
Though it's been so long, it's hard to carry on
I still have to tell myself each day that I'm over you

Oh, can't you see it in my eyes?
I'll be searching for the rest of my life for love that's true with someone like you
Oh, I'll never find someone like you
I must've been insane to let you get away
I couldn't tell you how I felt inside and now I'm paying the price for my foolish pride
The time has come and gone to let you know that I was wrong
Now there's nothing I can say to make it up to you
Once again I'll watch you go
But it's killing me that you'll never know just what I'd do for someone like you
Oh, I'll never find someone like you
I'm holdin tight to broken dreams I've left behind
It's lonely fate but I will wait until the end of time
For someone like you
Oh,I know that I was wrong

Can't you see it in my eyes?
I'll be searching for the rest of my life for love that's true with someone like you
Oh, I'll never find someone like you
Will I ever fine...(someone like you)
(oh, How'd I ever let you go?)
(I try every day...but I still have this big hole in my heart)
(I'll never find someone like you)




6. EVERYBODY CRIES SOMETIMES

I was wrong,so untrue...just let me make it up to you
I would give the world if I could now baby to turn this mess around
Who's gonna save me? I can see it in your eyes
(Whoa)-You think it's over...
But everybody cries sometimes and everybody's got their alibis
Well, I know that you've got it in you girl to let the whole thing slide
'Cause everybody cries sometimes

I can't sleep 'cause in my dreams my secrets wait to torture me
I would take it back if I could now baby to try to understand
Before you think I don't deserve you, I never meant to go and hurt you
Hey now baby, there's no hurry to decide-let me remind you...
That everybody cries sometimes and everybody's got their alibis
Well, I know that you've got it in you girl to let the whole thing slide
Everybody cries sometimes-Don't give up on the love we brought to life
To make it last, forgive the past, and lean to dry your eyes
'Cause everybody cries sometimes-Everybody cries sometimes

When I head the truth come from you it hit me right between the eyes
I thought you were nothing like me...well, I got a big surprise
Now I learned what you were up to, 'cause you were talking in your sleep
Calling someone else's name-I guess the turnabout's complete
Hey now baby, can't you see it in my eyes-
The games are over now...
But everybody cries sometimes and everybody's got their alibis
Well, I know that you've got it in you girl to let the whole thing slide
Everybody cries sometimes-don't give up on the love we brought to life
We can make it last, forgive the past, and learn to dry your eyes
Everybody cries sometimes-It only makes us stronger down the line
We'll make it last, forgive the past, and never say goodbye
Everybody cries sometimes-Everybody cries sometimes




7. LET'S TALK ABOUT ME

I hear you loud and clear my dear but it's nothing I haven't heard
Excuse me if I'm not hanging on your every word
I can recite each line by heart
I know my role...I know my part
But the truth of the matter is I'm through with all this chatter
Enough about you baby
Let's talk about me
You don't even have a clue lately what I really need
You forgot how to listen
That's what I'm missin'
And I just wanna scream enough about you baby
Let's talk about me
I must've dropped a hundred hints and you let 'em fly right by
Time and again I find myself just wonderin' why
Now when I try to talk to you
You're not the girl I thought I knew
Well, here's some good advice let me get a word in edgewise
Enough about you baby
Let's talk about me
You don't even have a clue lately what I really need
You forgot how to listen
That's what I'm missin'
And I just wanna scream enough about you baby
Let's talk about me
Take some time to see what's on my mind
You'll be amazed at what you'll find

Enough about you baby
Let's talk about me
You don't even have a clue lately what I really need
You forgot how to listen
That's what I'm missin'
And I just wanna scream enough about you baby
Let's talk about me
Let's talk about me
Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Yeah
Enough about you baby




8. SHE SAID SHE'D BE MINE

I used to swear I'd die alone
No one could fence me in
That wedding vows were out of style
And bands of gold don't fit
But She made me a believer when she said that she'd be mine
With the words "I do" all my dreams came true
(Since) she said she'd be mine it's been good to be alive
(Yeah, Yeah, Yeah)

A love life of near Mrs.
Did the talkin' when I said
That princesses were fairytales
And magic's just for kids
But she made me a believer when she said that she'd be mine
With the words "I do" all my dreams came true
(Since) she said she'd be mine it's been good to be alive
(Yeah, I'm sayin')
She said she'd be mine-it's been good to be alive
Every time she called my name
The angels sang along
And when she held me close to her
My restless heart was home
Now every night is Christmas Eve
'Cause she lays gently by
And I see my unborn children
When I look into her eyes

Yes, she made me a believer when she said that she'd be mine
With the words "I do" all my dreams came true
(Since) she said she'd be mine it's been good to be a
Tried and true believer since she said she'd be mine
With the words "I do" all my dreams came true
Since she said she'd be mine it's been good to be alive
(Now I'm singing')
She said she'd be mine it's been good to be alive
(Yeah, Yeah, Yeah)




9. THE HUNGER

Took a bite of my memories
The love I craved always starving me
And what I'd taste turned to bittersweet
Ooh-on and on I searched so long
A flag of white I flew
'Till I found you
You never stop giving me the hunger-never gonna fade away
Oh-I never fought the spell you put me under
Now I'll never be the same
Desire burning like a flame
And my heart'll never change
You'll never stop giving me the hunger
Years alone eat you up inside (it eats you up inside)
Cause time's no feast for an appetite
You hear stories told of the hearts served cold on the plate of life (On and On and On...)

Ooh-on and on delirium
Approached as I withdrew
'Till I found you
You never stop giving me the hunger-never gonna fade away
Oh-I never fought the spell you put me under
Now I'll never be the same
Desire burning like a flame
And my heart'll never change
You'll never stop giving me the hunger
Ooh-on and on you are my one
Eternal rendezvous...

(Chorus)




10. IS THAT HOW IT IS?

At a crossroads in London as the winter winds whipped through my hair
I noticed everyone stared at the ground and passed by like I wasn't there
I watched lonely people keep all to themselves full of fear in the worlds they had made
I swore then that I'd make a difference I promised that I'd make a change

Is that how it is?
Is that how it is, baby, with you?
Is that how you want it to be?
'Cause that's how it is with me
As I walked past a churchyard an old man on his knees in the street
Said, "Son, do you think you could help me? 'Cause I'm cold and I'd like something to eat."
But I could tell by the look in his eyes that he also needed a friend
So I smiled and I sat down beside him and he wept as I held his hand

Is that how it is?
Is that how it is, baby, with you?
Is that how you want it to be?
'Cause that's how it is with me
In the dark of night when you're feeling that there's no hope in sight
Do you dream of the world that we could make if we'd all just give instead of take?
We can open our hearts for our children's' sake
We can turn things around before it's too late
Baby, that's how it is with me

Do you wish to see the day when our love will set us free and together we all can live in peace?
Do you keep your faith when others just shake their heads and say that people will always stay the same?
Does your heart begin to break when you think of the world that we could make if we'd all just give instead of take?
In the dark of night when you're feeling that there's no hope in sight do you dream someday soon we'll see the light?
