    1. Best Of Times

      Things get bad, times get tough
      Everybody knows
      You gotta be a little stronger

      Just to have the things you need
      Everybody knows
      If you try a little harder
      You're gonna live a whole lot longer

      Had enough of burnin' up the midnight hour
      Going out and stayin' far too long
    chorus:

    You got to believe in something
    When you believe in something
    These are the best of times
    You got to have faith in someone
    When you have faith in someone
    These are the best of times
      Don't give up, can't give in
      Never lose a minute
      It's a long hard road back from nowhere
      Love is not what you take out
      It's what you put back in it
      Take you chance, there's no doubt
      Everything will all work out

      See my way, I know where I'm goin'
      I know I'd never think that I'd ever give up
      I want it all as soon as I can
      Right where I am
    chorus

    2. One Good Woman

      I am so in love with you
      I just can't deny it
      Everybody knows I can't deny it
      Everybody knows

      You can read me like a book
      Just like a fortune teller
      Everybody needs a fortune tller
      Telling you the very truth

      You bring me feelin'
      You bring me fire
      You give me love that's taking me higher
      Just goes to prove
      What one good woman can do

      You bring out the best in me
      With love and understanding
      Anytime I need some understanding
      You are always there

      And if I ever lose my way
      You're always there to guide me
      Anyone can see you're here inside me
      Anyone can see it

      You bring me feelin'
      You bring me fire
      You give me love that's taking me higher
      Just goes to prove
      What one good woman can do

      You fill me with hope
      Love and devotion
      You taught me how to show my emotion
      Just goes to prove
      What one good woman can do

      This is our time, we have it all
      We have a way of knowing if we're heading for a fall
      We'll work it out and get it right
      And when I get home to you
      You're such a sight for my poor eyes

      This is our time, we have it all
      When I come home at night
      You're such a sight for my poor eyes

      You bring me feelin'
      You bring me fire
      You give me love that's taking me higher
      Just goes to prove
      What one good woman can do

      You fill me with hope
      Love and devotion
      You taught me how to show my emotion
      Just goes to prove
      What one good woman can do
    Repeat

    3. Peace Of Mind

      Every time I have it made
      I let it rain on my parade
      I need a star that doesn't fade
      When I open my eyes

      Everything is clear to see
      You've given me a destiny
      I know there's something left for me
      And I found it this time
    chorus:

    I don't want it all, I just want a little bit
    And I'll never stop 'til I get to it
      Being with a woman like you
      Is all I ever wanted to do
      Give me something I can hold on to
      Then I'll have it all

      Find a little place in the sun
      Won't you tell me I'm the chosen one
      Say you need me when the day is done
      Then I'll have enough
      To get me through my life
    chorus
      I never will reget it
      'Cause I'm having the time of my life
      I can fly on the wings of our love here in the night
      Oh, it hurts if I let it
      But it's something I'd rather forget
      Now the past isn't holding me down
      Oh, don't you know
      I've learned to let it go

    4. Heaven Help This Lonely Man

      Not too long ago when she was mine
      I thought we would be together 'til the end of time
      That's the way it goes when you're in love
      Since she's gone there's no one else I'm thinking of
    chorus:

    I need her to stay with me
    Lay me down and pray for me
    Now I know just where I stand
    Heaven help this lonely man
      There will never be anyone else
      Never be another one to take her place
      Might as well give up, I can't go on
      Never find another one to fill this empty space
    chorus
      When she came to me she opened my eyes
      Suddenly life was worth living
      Now it's over for me I realize
      Nothing's the same since she's gone
      And I can't go on
    Repeat

    5. Save Me

      Man all alone, caught in raging water
      Man overboard, caught in a terrible storm
      Throw me the rope, pull me out of trouble
      I need someone, someone to keep me warm

      Why don't you save me
      I'm burning with desire
      Why won't you save me
      Don't leave me all alone
      And it's all right
      Wrap me up, baby won't you take me home

      Forty below, high up a lonely mountain
      Slipping down, baby I'm sinking fast
      Throw me the rope, pull me out of this trouble
      S.O.S. don't think I'm gonna last

      Why don't you save me
      I'm burning with desire
      Why won't you save me
      Come on hold me tight
      And it's all right
      Don't you know we're gonna have fun tonight

    6. Holding Out

      There's nothing outside my window
      But the sound of the pouring rain
      It oughta be breaking my heart
      But I feel no pain

      Trying to pick up the station
      That'll carry me through this night
      Got a fire to keep me warm
      'Til I got you in my arms

      Holding out, dug in deep
      I got an island that I'm gonna keep
      Close my eyes but I know I won't sleep
      Holding out
      Oh yeah
      I know love won't forget me, I gotta keep holding out

      Girl, I've been dreaming about you
      For the better part of my life
      At least I can make it without you
      One more night

      I'm not afraid of the thunder
      I won't run away from the storm
      Let the stars fall down and break
      I don't care how long it takes

      Holding out, dug in deep
      I got an island that I'm gonna keep
      Close my eyes but I know I won't sleep
      Holding out
      Oh yeah
      I know love won't forget me, I gotta keep holding out

      There's no other love in the world
      I could want any more

      Holding out, dug in deep
      I got an island that I'm gonna keep
      Close my eyes but I know I won't sleep
      Holding out
      Oh yeah
      I know love won't forget me, I gotta keep holding out

    7. Body Language ( There In The Dark )

      Moment by moment, day after day
      Trying your best to forget
      It's all behind you, it's part of the past
      You've got no time for regrets
      Time to start over with somebody new
      You've got nothing more to lose

      Out for the evening, dressed for the kill
      Leaving your troubles behind
      Dangerous places, dangerous times
      Leave with the first one you find
      Live for the moment, who cares if it's right
      Who needs tomorrow, you've got tonight

      There in the dark, under covers of love
      Body language is taking you somewhere you shouldn't go
      First name the last thing that you need to know

      In the morning you're out on the street
      Now's not the time for regrets
      Some things are done for the thrill of it all
      Some things you'll never forget
      Live for the moment, who cares if it's right
      Who needs tomorrow when you've got tonight

      There in the dark, under covers of love
      Body language is taking you somewhere you shouldn't go
      First name the last thing that you need to know

    8. You Never Listen To Me

      You say not now, it's too late
      Now's not the time, it can wait
      You never listen to me

      Some things are hard to forget
      It's time to do something you might regret
      You never listen to me

      I think that you must be blind
      Havn't you noticed that I'm not around
      Waisting your precious time

      All that I want
      Is knowing that someone will notice me
      I can't go on
      Knowing that you never bother to listen to me

      Losing the will to survive
      You never act like you know I'm alive
      You never listen to me

      All that I need
      Is knowing that someone remembers me
      I can't go on
      Knowing that you never bother to listen to me

    9. Scheherazade

      He was the sultan of Samarcand
      He had a harem of dancing girls at his command
      He owned all the eye could see
      Something was wrong, he wasn't happy

      And then it happened much to his surprise
      The loveliest woman he'd ever seen
      He asked her name and she replied
      Scheherazade

      She was the daughter of the Grand Vizier
      A real beauty with the heart of gold, she was so sincere
      She made a date with destiny
      Marry the king, make him happy

      He was enchanted on their wedding night
      Just a captive under her spell
      Spending a thousand and one Arabian nights

      All of his body tingled with delight
      Hearing the stories she loved to tell
      She was a vision, such a lovely sight
      Scheherazade

      He made a promise on the morning star
      He would change, throw away his scimitar
      So she came to stay
      And that's the why the story goes
      Until this very day

    10. One More Story

      One more story
      Then it's time for bed
      One more fairy tale
      Then rest your weary head
      One more kiss, I'll turn out the lights
      Everything's gonna be all right
      I'll still be here when you wake up in the morning
      Close your eyes, say goodnight

      Go to sleep now
      You've had a busy day
      Hold me in your dreams
      I won't be far away
      One more kiss then I'll turn out the lights
      Everything's gonna be all right
      I'll still be here when you wake up in the morning
      Close your eyes, say goodnight

      I can't believe just how fast you're growing
      I'm gonna cry when you're old enough
      To go and be on your own
      But until that very moment
      Everything's gonna be all right
      You'll still be here when I wake up in the morning
      Close your eyes, say goodnight
      Everything's gonna be all right
