1. ARE YOU READY?

Are you ready? You can trust me all the way
Are you ready? Well then let me hear you say...
That you're ready, and the world will know it's right
Yes you're ready, and I know it's outta sight
Now you're ready, well then what you waitin' for?
If you're ready, you just open up your door
'Cause I'm ready, for everything you got
Yes, I'm ready, come and get it while it's hot




2. ANYBODY'S ANSWER

If you find yourself looking for someone
To make good the bad things that you've done
Now do you think you're looking straight ahead?
And will you find the answer when you're dead?
Well then you should listen now to me
And I'll tell you how I think it should be
No one tells you why you're here to live
Ane this is why it's you who must forgive
No! You can't kill your brother...
No! Because you love each other...
No! You can't steal his pennies...
No! 'Cause you didn't leave him any
Ahhhhh...
Ahhhhh...
Ahhhhh...
Ahhhhhhhhhh...
And if reason tells you not to live
But you feel there's something left to give
You can't leave this place until it's done
So you'll see one more rising of the sun
Sun
Sun... You're just gonna' see it one more time
Sun... Oh you can't get away from it
Sun... You're gonna see it, Ohhh just one more time, Ohhh...




3. TIME MACHINE

Well a-hey there baby, do you want to make the scene?
I said a-hey there baby, do you want to make the scene?
Awww well come on over baby, step into my time machine
You best jump into my action, I'm gonna make you feel right
Awww, jump into my action, I'm gonna make you feel right
Don't worry 'bout tomorrow 'cause I'm gonna love you tonight
Step into the front row, I'm gonna show you how
Step into the front row, I wanna show you how
Don't worry 'bout no time we can always come back to right now
Awww and I'm gonna' give it to you
When you wanna come back, we just a turn about
When you wanna come back, we just a turn about
But we ain't gonna' come back 'till there ain't no doubt
Now don't it get good to you, ah-do you know what I mean?
Said don't it get good to you, don't you know what I mean?
Well come on over baby, jump into my time machine




4. HIGH ON A HORSE

Ain't no doctor, who can help the way I feel
Once you got her, boy she let's you know it's real
Learn to love her, or the opposite is right
To rise above her, you'll be so high you're out of sight
Feel so good, yeah, that you never want to come down
But you should, yeah, if you want to stay around




5. T.N.U.C

You won't find me, knockin' at your door
I've known forever, you don't love me no more
If you don't want to lay there, with your mouth shut tight
I'm gettin' myself together, yes I'm leavin' tonight
You ain't gonna' find nobody, to treat you like I do
I bend down on my knees, you treat me like a fool
Now I know what you're tryin' to do, awww it ain't gonna happen
'Cause I just done got hip to you, I'm a walk out laughin'




6. INTO THE SUN

Rising, setting, been trying to get into the sun yeah
Wanting, getting, gonna' get more baby when I'm done
All my life I had been waiting, then you turn me on
Now there'll be no hesitating, I'm getting into the sun
Growing, knowing, you learn more everyday yeah
Needing, succeeding, sun don't go away
Things are changing for the better, now I'm not afraid
I'll be writing you a letter, 'cause I just got paid
Growing, knowing, you learn more everyday yeah
Needing, succeeding, sun don't go away
Things are changing for the better, now I'm not afraid
I'll be writing you a letter, 'cause I just got paid




7. HEARTBREAKER

Once I had a little girl
Sometimes I think about her
But you know she's not really there
When memories do call
I just, I just can't live without her
But tryin' all the time is so hard to bear
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker is bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
I don't cry no more
I live while I'm flying
But I'll think back
And you can hear me say:
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me doWn
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down




8. CALL YOURSELF A MAN

Everybody's laughin' loud as it can be
But please don't point your finger, especially not at me
'Cause I'm not tryin' to be somebody, just do what I can
But you just keep on laughin', call yourself a man
I'm not lookin' for somebody to defend my case
I've been scorned by more than one so stop this paper chase
If you can't accept me just for what I am
Go ahead reject me, call yourself a man
Tell me who you're foolin', is it not yourself?
Go ahead be cool and, I'll just be myself
And if you can't accept me just for what I am
Go ahead reject me, call yourself a man




9. CAN'T BE TOO LONG

Ahhhhh...
Ah, Ah, Ahhhhh...
The heat of a summer day
Poundin' down on my back
Work like a dog in the sunlight
Tryin' to pay the people back
I killed a man in the spring time
Had to work hard just to make a dime
To buy my baby the things that she needs
I guess I didn't think twice
And now I have to pay the price
For killing a man of another creed
Ahhhhh...
Ah, Ah, Ahhhhh...
I guess I'll have to be strong
The rest of my life can't be too long
I know I'll die some day
And be going far away
And you won't remember the things that I've done
I feel a shedding tear
It's only been a year
But I know I'll be dead when that evening comes
Ahhhhh...
Ah, Ah, Ahhhhh...
I guess I'll have to be strong
The rest of my life can't be too long
Ahhhhh...
Ah, Ah, Ahhhhh.




10. UPS AND DOWNS

If you can feel it keep on tryin',
'Cause that's the way it's got to be.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
It's comin' down and I ain't buyin',
It's gonna' take a long time, to catch up with me.
And when you notice your condition,
Maybe you'll want to stay with me.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Then we can find the true definition,
The answer's here, right here with me.
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
Row, row, row your boat...
I want the world to know my reason.
And, if you help me find a way,
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
I'll bring my own and keep on pleasin'.
'Cause baby, this is the way I'm gonna' stay.
