    1. Big Mistake

      Keeps them all waiting
      They're standing in line
      He never has to worry about being alone
      He's taking his own sweet time

      The man's mighty hot
      Believe it or nor
      Every woman's after what the big boy's got
      They know it's all a lie but they're taking their shot

      He is such a smooth-talking man
      They never want to let him go
      He'll be gone when the morning comes
      Then they'll be the first to know

      It's just a big mistake
      Such a big mistake
      Well, it won't be the first
      It definitely won't be the last one you make
      Just a big mistake

      Sooner or later they're gonna find out
      He never cares about the hearts he's breaking tonight
      He's letting it all hang out
      The man's mighty tough
      Better leave before it starts to get too rough

      He such a smooth-talking man
      They never want to let him go
      He'll be gone when the morning comes
      Then they'll be the first to know

      It's a big mistake
      Such a big mistake
      Well, it won't be the first
      It definitely won't be the last one you make
      Such a big mistake
      Just a big mistake
      Such a big mistake
      Such a big mistake

      You might think you oughta call him Mr. Right
      Baby you might get a big surprise tonight
      You might think you oughta call him Mr. Right
      Baby you might get a big surprise tonight

      In the morning when you find him gone
      It's a big mistake
      You know you've been lied to
      In the morning when you know you're wrong
      Such a big mistake
      There's no one to cry to

      In the morning when you find him gone
      It's a big mistake
      You know you've been lied to
      In the morning when you're so alone
      Such a big mistake
      When you're so alone

      In the morning when you find him gone
      In the morning when you know you're wrong
      In the morning when you find him gone
      In the morning you'll be so alone, so alone

    2. They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To

      It's every young boy's fancy
      It's there hidden deep in the heart of a man
      It's just a feeling
      They won't ever understand
      They know they gotta have one
      A brand new model and it's here today
      And don't you know that she's made right here in the U.S.A.

    chorus:

    Don't ever stop trying
    Don't let her get away
    They don't make 'em like they used to
    I think they're better than before
    It's more than physical attraction
    Keeps you coming back for more
      She's a home grown beauty
      She's born and raised with a mind of her own
      And once you find her
      You'll never want to leave her alone
      She's making you crazy
      You can't live without her, she's here to stay
      Don't you know that she lives right here in the U.S.A.

    chorus
      They don't make 'em like they used to
      They're so much better than before

      I'm so tired of hearing--(I'm so tired)
      Some people say--(what people say)
      Everything is moving much too fast
      Things were better in the good old days
      Let them have their opinions--(let them have...)
      Never gonna change their mind--(they'll never change)
      They lived a long time ago
      When times were tough
      And a real good woman was hard to find

      They don't make 'em like they used to
      I think they're better than before
      It's more than physical attraction
      That keeps you coming back for more
    chorus
      They don't make 'em like they used to
      They're so much better than before

    3. Glory Of Love

      Tonight it's very clear
      As we're both lying here
      There's so many things I want to say
      I will always love you
      I would never leave you alone

      Sometimes I just forget
      Say things I might regret
      It breaks my heart to see you crying
      I don't wanna lose you
      I could never make it alone

      I am a man who will fight for your honor
      I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
      We'll live forever
      Knowing together that we
      Did it all for the glory of love

      You'll keep me standing tall
      You'll help me through it all
      I'm always strong when you're beside me
      I have always needed you
      I could never make it alone

      I am a man who will fight for your honor
      I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of
      We'll live forever
      Knowing together that we
      Did it all for the glory of love

      Just like a knight in shining armor
      From a long time ago
      Just in time I will save the day
      Take you to my castle far away

      I am a man who will fight for your honor
      I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
      We're gonna live forever
      Knowing together that we
      Did it all for the glory of love

      We'll live forever
      Knowing together that we
      Did it all for the glory of love

      We did it all for love
      We did it all for love
      We did it all for love
      We did it all for love

    4. Queen Of The Masquerade Ball

      She lays her cards out on the table
      She always gets what she's going for--and a whole lot more
      Got the movers and the shakers
      Quaking inside their mohair shoes
      After all there's nothing to lose
    chorus:

    Cracking that whip
    Making her own decisions
    Taking no lip
    Living with no conditions


      There's only one thing that she's missing
      She never tells anybody--she's missing it more and more each night
      And though she cries when she's alone
      By the morning she's ready to go
      She's got the light
    chorus
      Everything's fine
      Just as long as they do it her way
      Living with style
      She's got it all
      Hail to the queen of the masquerade ball

      And though she cries when she's alone
      By the morning she's ready to go
      She's got the light
    chorus
      Everything's fine
      Just as long as they do it her way
      Living with style
      She's got it all
      Hail to the queen of the masquerade ball

    5. Daddy's Girl

      When the sun goes down and it's getting late
      You say it's time for bed
      She just takes her time
      Acting like she never heard a word you said
      Little baby wanna hold you tight
      She don't ever wanna say good night
      She's a lover, she wanna be Daddy's Girl

      When the morning comes
      And it's time to go start another day
      She won't let you leave, and she does her best
      To try to make you stay
      Pretty baby gonna start to cry
      She don't ever wanna say good bye
      She's a lover, she wanna be Daddy's Girl

      She don't ever wanna be without you
      Never have to worry she won't doubt you
      Then she puts her head upon your shoulder
      Says she marry you when she get older

      When the time has come, and she's old enough
      To be on her own
      She won't understand why you're feelin' sad
      Cause she's leaving you all alone
      Little woman gonna make you cry
      You don't ever wanna say good bye
      She's a lady, she'll always be Daddy's Girl

      Little woman gonna break your heart
      Gonna miss her when you're both apart
      She's a lady, but she'll always be Daddy's Girl

      She'll always be Daddy's Girl
      She'll always be Daddy's Girl
      She'll always be Daddy's Girl
      She'll always be Daddy's Girl
      She'll always be Daddy's Girl
      She'll always be Daddy's Girl

    6. The Next Time I Fall

      Love like a road that never ends
      How it leads me back again
      To heartache
      I'll never understand
      Darling I put my heart up on a shelf
      'Till the moment was right and I told myself

      Next time I fall in love
      I'll know better what to do
      Next time I fall in love
      Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
      The next time I fall in love
      The next time I fall in love
      It will be with you

      Now as I look into your eyes
      Well I wonder if it's wise
      To hold you
      Like I've wanted to before
      Tonight ooo I was thinking that you might
      Be the one who breathes life in this heart of mine

      Next time I fall in love
      I'll know better what to do
      Next time I fall in love
      Ooo ooo ooo
      The next time I fall in love
      The next time I fall in love
      ( It will be with you )

      Next time I'm gonna follow through
      And if it drives me crazy
      I will know better why
      The next time I try

      Next time I fall in love
      I'll know better what to do
      Next time I fall in love
      Ooo ooo ooo
      The next time I fall in love
      The next time I fall in love
    Repeat

    7. Wake Up To Love

      Hey baby, you've got nothing to lose
      Now's the time to slip away
      Oh woman can't you see
      I really want you here with me

      Hey Mama, I can make you forget
      What you ever saw in him
      Don't understand
      Why you wanna be with that man

      The time is right so take it from me
      You'll find out when we're alone
      Good lovin' follows good company
      There's no tellin' what I'll do, when I get next to you

      Hey baby, if you look in my eyes
      I won't let you get away
      Oh woman don't you see
      I'd rather have you here with me

      Hey Mama, don't you tell me good night
      Where's your curiosity
      Don't understand
      Why you wanna be with that man

      The time is right so take it from me
      You'll find out when we're alone
      Good lovin' follows good company
      There's no tellin' what I'll do, when I get next to you

      I can't explain
      Hope you feel the same
      Wanna wake up to love
      I know it's true
      Can't get over you
      Wanna wake up to love

      The night is still young
      We've got nothing but time
      All alone
      In our own paradise

      The time is right so take it from me
      You'll find out when we're alone
      Good lovin' follows good company
      There's no tellin' what I'll do, I just want to feel it too

      I can't explain
      Hope you feel the same
      Wanna wake up to love
      I know it's true
      Can't get over you
      Wanna wake up to love

    8. Solitude / Solitaire

      Lying here thinking of a place to hide
      I've got to get away
      There are times like this when I'm better off by myself

      Stuck in a corner
      Nothing more to lose, I'm a goner
      I'm just chained by thoughts, surrounded by walls
      And they're closing in around me

      Lying here waiting for the chance to run
      I need to isolate
      There are times like this when I'd rather be left alone

      Caught in a panic
      Trying not to look like a manic

      Got to move, got to go
      Got to get out of here
      Leave this all behind me
    chorus

    Solitude, Solitaire
    No one will ever find me there
    Solitude, Solitaire
    Won't you give me some bread, give me some water
    Solitude, Solitaire
    No one will ever find me there
    Got to find peace of mind, clear the air
      Mass confusion
      Leaving me with no solution
      If you find I'm asleep, better leave me alone
      I'll wake up when it's over
    chorus

    chorus
      Won't you give me some bread, give me some water
      Got to find peace of mind, clear the air

    9. Only Love Knows Why

      One more sad tomorrow
      And I'm not very good at hiding my sorrow
      It's not the same without you
      So alone and so afraid
      I thought we had it made

      What about us, what about the way
      We were so in love, when we were together
      I thought you'd never leave
      Now I know this time you're gone forever

      Only love can break your heart
      Fill you with desire
      And tear you all apart
      Only love can make you cry
      Only love knows why

      One more night without you
      I'm just trying to pretend that you're coming back again
      You know I never meant to doubt you, oh no
      We were young and we were free
      Now I can't believe this has happened to me

      What about us, what about the way
      We were so in love, when we were together

      Only love can break your heart
      Fill you with desire
      And tear you all apart
      Only love can make you cry
      Only love knows why

      Gonna be a long hard road without you
      And there's one thing you should know
      Tell me who will I turn to
      When I get in trouble
      I really don't want you to go, no

      Tell me who can I turn to
      When I get in trouble
      Baby please don't leave me
      Can't you see you must believe me

      Only love can break your heart
      Fill you with desire
      And tear you down, the minute that you fall apart

      Only love can make you cry
      Only love knows why, oh no
      Only love can tear you down
      Only love knows why, oh no

      Only love will make you cry
