Available Lyrics

Square One

( 1st verse )
Remembering the day when we had it all
knowing that I'd be there when you called
Our love was warm and tender

But now there's something missing when we touch
cause touching never seems to be enough
My feelings I surrender

B sect.
Like a game - we seem to hang each other out to dry
It's a shame - we never learned to work this thing out
eye to eye

Chorus
What's it gonna take to start it over
What's it gonna take to get us back to --- square one

How are we gonna make it last forever
How are we ever gonna get it back to love

( 2nd verse )
We should take the time to think it over
think about the things that drew us closer
How it changed the way we lived

Cause now I feel the urge for your affection
and it's hard to move without direction
I don't know what to give

(B sect. - Chorus - Solo -Chorus Out)

I Need You Now

( 1st verse )
Something inside of me is holding on to you
I'm having the hardest time - facing the truth
I'm saying I'm sorry baby - for the way that I've been
I never realized - you were my closest friend

Now that I've fallen back to doing it alone
something is missing baby - home isn't home
I can't escape the nights of seeing you in my dreams
There's no mistaking baby - I need you here with me

B sect.
Cause you have to know by now - the grass was never greener
once I finally got to the other side
And the lesson that I've learned - is you can't turn your back
When you're living with - what you're feeling inside

Chorus
If ever this heart of mine needed a tender touch
I need you now
If ever these eyes needed to fall on the face of love
I need you now

It's hard to explain it baby - how I'm feeling inside
I need you now
I can't contain myself - not without a fight
I need you now

( 2nd verse )
How did I get to this fork in the road
Why did I ever feel - love was an over load
I miss the tenderness of your loving ways
Should've held on to you - I should have made you stay

My heart's telling me - better make your move
I can't give you up - I don't want to lose
Don't have to think about - how it's gonna be
There's no mistaking baby - I need you here with me

( B sect. - Chorus Out)

Eye To Eye

( 1st verse )
Rumor holds the words that come from you
but I can't live my life - a rumored fool
Theory has it this might be the day
but theory never gets around to what it needs to say

No more standing in - the path of lies
cause I don't want he said she said in my life
I have no need to know - what goes on outside
Love at this moment is you and I

B sect.
Come a little closer - open up your mind to what is real
You don't have to ask the question
Let me show you how it feels

Chorus
Eye to eye --- face to face
Eye to eye --- face to face
Eye to eye --- face to face
Eye to eye --- face to face

( 2nd verse )
Wondering - just keeps me hanging on
Half the things I thought I knew - have come and gone
I suffer from the need to know the truth
What I want to hear baby - has to come from you

B sect.
Move a little closer
Let me show you how to do this right
There's no need for you to question
You're gonna know tonight's the night

(Chorus - Solo -Chorus Out)

Irresistible Love

( 1st verse )
I'm - following signs - into the heights - of my passion
You - haven't a clue - what you do to me

Now - every night - I mark the time - until I'm with you
My - body is locked - you hold the key

B sect.
When you give your love it takes my mind, my heart. my body,
and my soul - deep into a special place - I can't go alone
I don't ever want to lose the thought of how you make me
feel inside - so to keep my sanity - I'll mark the time - by ---

Chorus
Counting the hours - counting the minutes
counting the seconds --- irresistible lover

All that I live for - is just to feel your
Irresistible love

( 2nd verse )
I - choose not to hold - any control - when we're together
My - sensuality climbs - just by getting a look

You - can have it your way - do what you will - I'll take whatever
There's - no need for us - to follow the book

(B sect. - Chorus Out)

Pieces

( 1st verse )
When I saw your face last night
something deep inside me knew
Now I've come to realize
there's still a part of me- stuck in a part of you

How can something feel so strong
after all this passing time
Love just seems to carry on
even though we live out separate lives

B sect.
Sometimes holding on to what -
makes me feel like being touched -
helps to get me through the night -
it's a simple black and white -

When I want to show I care
But I don't know if you're there
In this desperation love
I keep living with the --- pieces
(I keep hanging on to --- pieces)

Chorus
Pieces -- pieces of my heart --- pieces
Pieces -- tearing me apart --- pieces
Pieces -- pieces of my soul --- pieces
Pieces -- I can't let go --- pieces

( 2nd verse )
I live so many restless nights
wondering how it all went wrong
Darkness creeped into my life
I turned my back and you were gone

(B sect. - Chorus Out)

Hold Me Accountable

( 1st verse )
Slow me -- if it starts to get confusing
cause baby I'm not -- one who's into using
Honey to know you -- is to know the fruits of pleasure
Cause good love -- is the you I've come to treasure

B sect.
Maybe here tonight - I can change your life
Open up your heart to feel what's right before you eye
If it's what you want - stay here in my arms
I can be love forever keeping you from harm
(* that keeps you sheltered from the storm)

Chorus
You don't have to let it cross your mind
I am here to dedicate my life
You can hold me accountable

If you start to feel the heat from doubt
Know that you will never be without
You can hold me accountable

You won't ever have to question love
I am one forever you can trust
You can hold me accountable

Know that you will always be a friend
Cause I plan to see this to the end
You can hold me accountable

( 2nd verse )
Trust me -- time will make it better
cause baby this moment -- is yours and mine together
Honey I'm willing -- to make this one commitment
Are you with me -- tell me that you want it

(*B sect. -Breakdown - Chorus out)

Blind To It All

( 1st verse )
Caught up in the madness of it all
chasing after love through a dream I let get away
Wanting to remember things I can't recall
That's my life -- from day to day

Daring was my heart so free to fly
failing to adhere to the boundaries of my life
Never thinking I could ever lose
That's the mind -- of a fool

B sect.
All that I'm wanting to say - (is) I made the biggest mistake
In my judgement of where -- you are in my heart
Turning this feeling around -- means getting my feet on the ground
And loving you baby -- just for who you are

Chorus
I never got close enough ---
I never knew the feel of love - I was blind
I was blind to it all
I didn't want to take the chance ---
I didn't know what I had - I was blind
I was blind to it all

Calling on a need to love ---
Sorry for all I've done - I was blind
I was blind to it all
So much that I have to do ---
You I don't want to lose - I was blind
I was blind to it all

( 2nd verse )
Picking up the pieces that were lost
trying to find my way - back into your heart
Loneliness is proof of my mistake
That's my life - give and take

(B sect - Chorus Out)

Read Between The Lines

( 1st verse )
It's not a sacrifice to love you baby
I'm ready to give my all n' all
Though the time get just a little bit trying for us
You know I'll be here when you call

So many days I've had to drink from bitter waters
Swallow my pride and carry on
Now I'm afraid I have a need for some answers
I want to know just what's going on

B sect.
How could you think that I'd have no regards for feelings
How could I be so far removed
Deep in my heart you are my life's new beginning
Girl there's no way -- I want to lose you

Chorus
Read between the lines --- a better love you'll never find
Read between the lines --- make the most of love this time
Read between the lines --- a better love you'll never find
Read between the lines ---I need you here with me tonight

( 2nd verse )
I'm not at a loss when it comes to loving you baby
There's too many ways to get it on
Somehow we've got to learn to cross that bridge together
Separate the right from the wrong

B sect.
Why can't you see that I am one to be trusted
Why can't you see that I'm a friend
All I could ever give to you is what you're wanting
I'm here with you -- right to the end

(Chorus - Breakdown - Chorus Out)

A.P.B.

( 1st verse )
I've been here waiting for the moment when love
takes its place in my heart
Interesting enough - it always seems to end up somewhere else

I sense the pressure - of how it must feel
to be alone in the dark
What I have to do right now is take a stand for myself

B sect.
So many times I took hope to the limit
But this time it just wasn't to be
I need the feeling of love in my arms
I need that someone who's in need of me ---

Chorus
I'm sending out a call for help --- A.P.B.
I'm sending out a call for love
Someone to love --- A.P.B.

I'm sending out a call for help --- A. P.B.
I'm sending out a call for love
Someone to love --- A.P.B.

( 2nd verse )
There's no comfort when I live with the feeling
like I'm standing in hell
trying to find a way to help my heart - get over you

If this is judgement - let me hear the voice
that makes my spirit stand still
I need to feel the peace of heaven - when all this is through

(B sect. - chorus Out)

Never Too Blue

( 1st verse )
Angel came down from the sky -
and landed on my heart
What I saw before my eyes -
had always been the answer

Love would come into my life -
but leave me in the dark
(It's) strange even in the color blue -
I can always find some pleasure

Chorus
I will never be -- too blue to love
I will never stop giving the things you need to trust
Never too blue ---
Never too blue ---

I will never be -- too blue to love
I will never stop wanting to feel the two of us
Never too blue ---
Never too blue ---

(Solo)

( 2nd verse )
Hidden thoughts inside my mind -
keep saying let it go
Don't get yourself all worked up -
Take it on -- another day

Must admit at times it's hard -
to let my feelings go
Strange -- even in the dark of blue -
I can always find my way

(Chorus Out /w/ Sax)

One And Only

( 1st verse )
You're some kind of valuable treasure
Some kind of magical find
I knew that I made the catch of my life
the day I made you mine

So glad - to be caught in the miracle of love
that keeps me forever yours
I'm one who counts his blessings each and everyday
It's you that I'm living for

B sect.
If ever there was a void in my heart--
You filled it with your trust --- yes you did baby
Nothing can change the faith I have in you
Honey I'm locked into your love --- and it feels so good

Chorus
I'm happy to be your one and only ---
Happy to be the only one you ever loved
I'm happy to be your one and only
One and only love

I'm happy to be your one and only ---
Happy to be the one you want to give your trust
I'm happy to be your one and only
One and only love

( 2nd verse )
You're some kind of wonderful person
Some kind of special friend
I want to be loved by you forever baby -- come on
Love me until the end

(B sect. - Chorus - Solo - Chorus)

Blind To It All... (Soft Mix)

( 1st verse )
Caught up in the madness of it all
chasing after love through a dream I let get away
Wanting to remember things I can't recall
That's my life -- from day to day

Daring was my heart so free to fly
failing to adhere to the boundaries of my life
Never thinking I could ever lose
That's the mind -- of a fool

Picking up the pieces that were lost
trying to find my way - back into your heart
Loneliness is proof of my mistake
That's my life - give and take

Restless

( 1st verse )
Come lay down beside me baby
Touch me where you want touch me
This midnight heat is overwhelming
and it's hot up under the sheets

Come on and rub me down - baby
Take my mind to another place
I can't contain these thoughts inside
when lust is getting in the way

Chorus
Baby I'm restless --- I'm restless
It's about you -- and what you do to my mind
Restless --- I'm restless
Can't get around - what's going on inside

Baby I'm restless --- I'm restless
It's about love - creeping into the night
Restless --- I'm restless
Can't live without it - don't wanna try

(Break --- Ad-lib)

( 2nd verse )
Let's get down to the down of business --- baby
How do you wanna spell relief
I can't control my body's madness
cause the heat from love makes me weak

Let's push this to the wall of passion
Do with me what you wanna do
I seek to serve no limitations -- baby
I'll give what ever pleases you

(Chorus -Solo - Break/Ad-lib - Chorus Out)
