Take back All those things you said When you were tired of living Hold on To the dreams we shared They were so easy to believe in Turn back From the way you're goin' It's a rocky road for sure Lift up your heart to heaven Dream this dream with me once more Do it for love Do it for love Tell me how to love you Let me know what I've been missing Don't walk out of this life again You've got me, You've got this love This world in your hand Do it for love Do it for love And I can see a time when we will dare to laugh At all these ghosts that haunt us Hey, that day we'll say we did it Did it for love

You say you're sorry I can't get over it I said I forgive you I can't get over it You say you'll learn from this mistake I can't get over it I should be giving you a break But I can't... We've put it behind us now I can't get over it Nothing left to remind us now I can't get over it They say that time heals every wound I can't get over it You thought the worst was over soon I can't get over it You need somebody Who can get over it You need somebody Who can get over it We know you're wiser now I can't get over it I don't want to despise you now I can't get over it I try and force myself to forget But it's hanging right over my head I've done so much worse so many times myself I can't get over it I've got no right to indict somebody else I can't get over it You hurt us both, I'm hurting us more Not getting over it Could I say I ever really loved you If I don't get over it We need somebody Who can get over it We need somebody Who can get over it We need somebody to take the pain of it We need somebody Who has bought and paid for you And it! And it! End it! End it! Who's gonna help me Who's gonna help me Get past this thing Get past this thing To a real place To a real place Give you some space Give you some space Where I can face it Where I can face it We can erase it We can erase it Oh erase it! Oh erase it! Erase! Erase! Erase! Erase! Erase! Erase! Erase!

It's amazing What words can do Give your eyes a sparkle Turn you inside out You washed in those words You sewed them in the lining of your heart They slowly seeped into your blood And ran the course of your body Faster than any drug Faster than lightning They ran to your feet Your steps were solid And they ran on to your hands Your fingers weren't afraid to touch And they ran to your lips And they spoke so soft Ever so softly to me What was in that letter That calls to me, to me, to me What was in that letter Straight to the very heart of me What was in that letter That haunts me from this distance What was in that letter So sure So persistent Why don't you open it Read it again Read it over again to you and me Why don't you let every last line Sink into our little minds Read it again Tear the curtain down Pull the altar to the ground What was in that letter That calls to the soul of me What was in that letter Tenderly, sweetly What was in that letter That haunts me from this distance What was in that letter?

He put it out It meant nothing in the world to him so He put it out His hunger needed some attention so He laid it out Swapped it all for a bowl of pork and beans And he got put out Left for poor By a man of means Esau, you sod You gave it away Esau, you sought it with tears Couldn't get it back again She put it out He put the heat on and she got too hot so She put it out Gives in a little But she's giving him a lot and she lays it out She's showing all her prized possessions to him and She's putting out She's swapping everything for what he's putting in but Her lamp goes out She didn't notice the light was growing dim and then He goes out And he takes everything that she had With him Tamar babe You shoulda run away Tamar babe You saw it coming Did you have to stay and play Tamar babe! Where was your head that day Tamar, He took your best and left You left it too late Too late Too late Too late Too late Ashes for your veil Ashes for your veil Veil of ashes Veil of ashes Veil of ashes

Well, I feel Like I have to feel Something good all of the time With most of life I cannot deal But a good feeling I can feel Even though it may not be real And if a person, place or thing can deliver I will quiver with delight But will it last me for all my life Or just one more lonely night The lust, the flesh The eyes And the pride of life Drain the life Right out of me Well, I see something and I want it Bam! Right now! No questions asked Don't worry how much it costs me now or later I want it and I want it fast I'll go to any length Sacrifice all that I already have And all that I might get Just to get Something more that I don't need And Lord, please don't ask me what for The lust, the flesh The eyes And the pride of life Drain the life Right out of me And I love when folks Look right at me And what I'm doing Or have done And lay it on about How groovy I am And that I'm looking grand And every single word Makes me think I'll live forever Never knowing that they probably Won't remember what they said tomorrow Tomorrow I could be dead The lust, the flesh The eyes And the pride of life Drain the life Right out of me

Lonely mess Staring out a window pane Sitting on an unmade bed Thinking with an un-madeup mind About the things I can't forget You've gone but you never left And now I'm only a frame A frame without a photograph If only once someone Someone would fill me up How can I bear This nightmare that I cannot tear From the everyday I wear Over and over Like a B-movie The kind you wouldn't want to see And now I'm only a frame A frame without a photograph If only once someone Someone would fill me up I am only a frame A frame without a photograph Fill me up Fill me up Fill me up Fill me up I've got a need to be met By someone that I've not met yet I've got shadows, I've got silhouettes But haven't the frame nor the framework I am only a frame A frame without a photograph If only once someone Someone would fill me up

Who is that calling you home Someone you don't even know Who is that calling you, calling you Find out before you go You say you're leaving Where are you going, baby No guarantee Destination unknown You say you're at the point Where every single place And every look on every face Makes you want to cry And everything you see When you walk in a room Is straight out of a bad dream But the dream came true And now you wanna die Oh no baby-o Oh Don't say goodbye Oh Don't say goodbye I beg your pardon, but Who promised you a garden (East of Eden) You're arrogant to presuppose there's bliss (Somewhere over the abyss) You bet your life and hope to find a different place A different world at a different pace Don't make a brand new start 'Cuz who you are And what you've been Is what you'll bring To every place and every thing Without a change of heart More of the same thing, baby-o Oh Don't say goodbye Oh Don't say goodbye You never hear birds singing (Someone hears you crying) Your mind's in winter (Your frozen heart is dying) But you're the very best thing That ever happened to me Don't go 'Cuz baby I love you so Oh Don't say goodbye Oh Don't say goodbye

Bottom Line 03:51
I'm getting tired of walking up every floor I'm getting tired of waking up anymore But there's a hope now and there wasn't before I got no money and I got no time I fall down every mountain I try to climb But peace of heart is better than peace of mind I've got a bottom line Oh yeh I've got a bottom line Oh yeh I've got a bottom line Oh no You take one look at me and you wanna walk 'Cuz there's no good in me and I shouldn't talk But I've got everything though nothing at all I wasn't looking for what it was I found Myself standing on some holy ground I couldn't stand it and I had to sit down Wanted the impossible Looked for the impossible The impossible found me first I've got a bottom line Oh yeh I've got a bottom line Oh yeh I've got a bottom line Oh no I've got a bottom line Oh yeh I've got a bottom line Oh yeh I've got a bottom line Oh no

Mama don't understand she wants to hold my hand Night and day She don't like my clothes They're wearing thin On her nerves She don't like my hair My glorious crown Brings her down She won't take me serious Think I'll join the circus Be a clown And they'll all laugh They'll all laugh They'll all laugh But it's not funny No I'm restless Wanna bust out of my skin Got a rocket In my pocket Got no fuel No charted course Got no direction No, they did not give me those in school Yes, I've been a fool for cool But no kind of hair, no shoes, no jackets Gonna help me hack it, hack it Hack it to pieces, man I've had it And you can have it Chorus Well, I wonder what will Get me off So I pick and choose and take And in a couple years You're right I'm left With a great big heartache So deep and wide That no matter what I stuff inside It's empty Just the way it came It's a crying shame But all the same Chorus Should I recall All the people I have hurt Along the way And should I try To justify Every wrong I did not right But two wrongs don't make it right And so it keeps me up at night And I lie awake And while away the meanwhile And meanwhile...... Meanwhile I dwell On the baby that I killed Or the drink I should have not refilled And every heart I broke in 2 And left to die Bleeding on the roadside Or I could sit And let my eyes fill with mist For every girl that I should not have kissed And all the broken family ties The loved ones I have missed Yes, I have mist in my eyes And so I cry But why should I should I Chorus And everything I've got I'm gonna lose Both good and bad Will pass And what next What lies Beyond the broken dreams And shattered mirrors I keep looking in To check my luck Or skill But only pride keeps staring back And stil I laugh Still I laugh And none of this, of course, Will stand When I stand before the man On that great day Of the great divide When all the kings and queens Will have their closets emptied And the bones will all fall out 'Dem bones 'dem bones 'dem dry bones Will not fail Dead men will tell tales And you can laugh And I can laugh And we can laugh But it's not funny

Come on let me in I swear I'll be your only friend And I will get down on my knees for you And if I could You know I would do anything at all To get you near today Hear me say You're more than money More than glory More than I could ever hope to say You're more than beauty More than mystery More than now More than yesterday Take me to your heart 'Cuz there is where we make it start And I will get down on my knees for you And pay the price Sacrifice Do anything at all to melt your soul on ice Realize You're more than money More than glory More than I could ever hope to say You're more than beauty More than mystery More than now More than yesterday More than a lover More than a friend More than a talent More than a trend More than a mystery More than a dance More than your history More than romance More than your politics More than your plans More than a sure thing More than a chance More than your weakness More than your strength More than completeness More than fragments

Imagine All those years together As a blackbird with no song to sing Imagine Throwing it to the air But it falls from broken wings Don't leave this way, so many words unsaid Don't lie this way, stretched straight from Feet to head Imagine The sky is pouring down On the back of all those years Imagine That bird helpless on the ground Shot down by all those tears Don't leave this way, so many words unsaid Don't lie this way, stretched straight from Feet to head Don't look this way, closed eyes, unmoving lips Don't feel this way, cold hands and fingertips
