In My Pocket

Among the many muted faces
You try to find me in the spaces
You're drawn to my song oh
You only move to keep from sinking
You close your eyes as if your thinking
Afraid all along
That in my eyes you're so revealing
You'll find what you're needing

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love
Slip my heart in your back pocket
All I got to keep you warm
Baby don't leave me here without it
Tell me how much for your love
How much for your love

Hoping the melody will leave you
You walk to where I might not see you
Reach out to the wind
Looking to catch it for a minute
But just to hold it not be in it
I've been where you've been
Cause some how I'm so afraid the love will reveal what you're made of

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love
Slip my heart in your back pocket
All I got to keep you warm
Baby don't leave me here without it
Tell me how much for your love

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love
Slip my heart in your back pocket
All I got to keep you warm
Baby don't leave me here without it
Tell me how much for your love
How much for your love
Yea yea
Your love

Nothing but,
Nothing buy
Cause somehow I'm so afraid the love will reveal what you're made of

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love
Slip my heart in your back pocket
All I got to keep you warm
Baby don't leave me here without it
Tell me how much for your love

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love
Slip my heart in your back pocket
All I got to keep you warm
Baby don't leave me here without it
Tell me how much for your love

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Slip my heart in your back pocket
All I got to keep you warm
Baby don't leave me here without it
Your love
Nothing but,
Nothing but
How much for your love?
Nothing but pennies in my pocket

It Only Took a Minute

Don't tell me how, I had a vision
That this day would come to be
Call it luck, call it intuition yeah
Here I am (here we are)
Isn't that enough
For a little bit of reality
Fate is good fate can be real
If you believe it's what you feel
Oh, what a moment
When I looked into your eyes
I knew I got the prize
Oh baby, what a sweet surprise

It only took a minute, baby to let you in my life
It only took a minute, for me to realize
It only took a minute, and I knew just what to do
It only took a minute, to fall in love with you

Time and time again, boy I've always been
The only one to think things through
You got a hold of me
You set me free
Who would've known
That out of the blue
I discovered the magic of all my dreams that night
With just one look at you
I knew that everything would be all right

It only took a minute, baby to let you in my life
It only took a minute, for me to realize
It only took a minute, and I knew just what to do
It only took a minute, to fall in love with you

Here I am, isn't it a vision oh
Here I am, isn't it a vision oh

Oh, what a moment
When I looked into your eyes
I knew I got the prize
Oh baby, what a sweet surprise

It only took a minute, baby to let you in my life
It only took a minute, for me to realize
It only took a minute, and I knew just what to do
It only took a minute, to fall

Want you in my life, oh baby
It only took a minute, baby to let you in my life
It only took a minute, for me to realize
It only took a minute, and I knew just what to do
It only took a minute, to fall in love with you

It only took a minute, baby to let you in my life
It only took a minute, for me to realize
It only took a minute, and I knew just what to do
It only took a minute, to fall in love with you

You Remind Me

When I first saw you I couldn't believe
The way you smiled took the breath out of me
And maybe I'm seeing things
But if it's true don't wake me up from this dream

You remind me
Of a love I knew
Feels so weird it must be deja vu
You remind me
But I ain't got a clue
Boy I'm so glad I found you

Never thought I could love again
But then you came and changed something within (I'm so confused)
I'm so confused case you're not the same
There's something special that reminds me

It's the way you walk and
The way you talk and
You really got style
It's the way you move and
The way you groove and
I love your smile (I love your smile)

You remind me
Of a love I knew
Feels so weird it must be deja vu
You remind me
But I ain't got a clue
Boy I'm so glad I found you

I, I cannot figure it out
I ain't got a clue
I'm so confused about how I feel
Cause I'm really feelin you

It's the way you walk and
The way you talk and
You really got style
It's the way you move and
The way you groove and
I love your smile (I love your smile)

You remind me
Of a love I knew
Feels so weird it must be deja vu
You remind me
But I ain't got a clue
Boy I'm so glad I found you

You remind me (You remind me)
Of a love I knew (You remind me)
Feels so weird it must be deja vu (You remind me)
You remind me (You remind me)
But I ain't got a clue (You remind me)
Boy I'm so glad I found you (You remind me)

You remind me
Of a love I knew
Feels so weird it must be deja vu
You remind me
But I ain't got a clue
Boy I'm so glad I found you

Turn the Clock Around

We were talking to each other 'til dawn
You put your arms around me
And you asked me what was wrong
I tried to be so serious, you smiled and played along
You were leaving town tomorrow,
Yeah tomorrow you'll be gone

We must've had the stars above and heaven on our sides
Cause we fell in love before we even made it through the night
But you were leaving town to start another kind of life
You walked me to the door and then we tried to say goodbye

Baby I never found the right way
Kept my love hidden underground
Baby I wish that there was some way
That I could turn the clock around

I couldn't sleep, I called up everybody that I knew
All my friends said I'd be crazy if I waited 'round for you
And I wanted to believe it so I called to say we're through
But when I heard your voice, it nearly broke my heart in two

Baby I never found the right way
Kept my love hidden underground
Baby I wish that there was some way
That I could turn the clock around

Don't say you're lost, I'll find you someday
Well I jumped into the car but as I headed down the road
I knew that when I got there, there might be nobody home
You had gone away forever, you left me all alone
Now I was on my own.

Baby I never found the right way
Kept my love hidden underground
Baby I wish that there was some way
That I could turn the clock around
That I could turn the clock around
That I could turn the clock around

Saturate Me

The desert I wander lacks it's mirage
There's no mistaking the barrage
Of sand and wind that tears my skin
Leaving what's without exposing what's within

Forsaken, left here
In my barren desolate

My soul is evaporating
Won't you saturate me, won't you saturate me
Rain down on me with life
My soul is evaporating
Won't you saturate me, won't you saturate me
Storm around me, bring the tide

My days stretch long into the heat
As the sun brightens my defeat
My lips are chapped, they're parched and dry
My thirst it builds with every day gone by

Forsaken, left here
In my barren desolate

My soul is evaporating
Won't you saturate me, won't you saturate me
Rain down on me with life
My soul is evaporating
Won't you saturate me, won't you saturate me
Storm around me, bring the tide

The dunes that shift, drift and lift in the wind
Cover up my hope, as I start to give in
To the cracks and creases and the dips in my will
As I am pushed toward the brink, I drink down air and swill

My soul is evaporating
Won't you saturate me, won't you saturate me
Rain down on me with life
Baby bring life
My soul is evaporating
Won't you saturate me, won't you saturate me
Storm around me, bring the tide

My soul is evaporating
Won't you saturate me, won't you saturate me
Rain down on me with life
My soul

Yo-yo

It's broken
I know what you want
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go

I keep hanging around
Got some attachment to you
Way down is still where you get through
I told myself it isn't right but isn't wrong
Yet I've found
The more you hug and call me
The more I need protecting
Can't hear myself singing the same sad song

Oh, and it's not hard to figure out
Why I am never too far from the floor
You can only take me up and down
I've got to move forward
So I've cut the cord

It's broken I can't let that hope in
I know what you want
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go
You're leaving me no choice then
I'll be on my way
I'm not a yo-yo
I don't come back when I'm thrown hey

I keep hanging around
But can't defy gravity
Rebound everytime you touch me
I've told myself it isn't right but it isn't wrong
Yet I found the more you high and low me
The more I need stability
Can't hear myself singing this for too long

Oh, and now you've come to face the fact
But I'm running fast as I can to the door
Cause you wanna swing me up and back
And I've got to move forward
So I've cut the cord

It's broken
I can't let that hope in
I know what you want
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go
You're leaving me no choice then
I'll be on my way
I'm not a yo-yo
I don't come back when I'm thrown

Didn't I adore you.
Didn't I keep you satisfied, didn't I
Didn't I assure you
For every climb there is a downward slide that I can't ride
Didn't I adore you
Didn't I bend to keep you satisfied, didn't I
Didn't I assure you
For every climb there is a downard slide I had to cut the cord

It's broken
I know what you want
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go
You're leaving me no choice then
I'll be on my way
I'm not a yo-yo
I don't come back when I'm thrown
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go

One Sided Love

I know you've tried your best
That's not good enough for me
Understand it unless
Love's gotta go both ways
Well you push me to the left
Then you push me to the right
But you gotta meet me in the middle
If you wanna make this right
You gotta believe
So here it is
I wanna help you out
Tell you what it's all about
What I feel, what I need
How's it gonna be
So what you wanna do
What you really wanna do
Cause I've decided everything
That I want from you

One sided love
Is never gonna work
So let me tell you something
That I'm sure you've never heard of
Tender love and care
In case you're unaware
So I tell you what
Let me tell you where it's at
Hit me with your best shot

I'm giving you a second chance
But you gotta understand
If you don't know how to love me
I will find someone who can
So read my lips for the last time
I tell you now with no regret
If you don't get your act together
Even your name I will forget
You gotta believe
So here it is

I wanna help you out
Tell you what it's all about
What I feel, what I need
How's it gonna be
So what you wanna do
What you really wanna do

One sided love, never gonna work

One sided love
Is never gonna work

Tender love and care
In case you're unaware
So I tell you what
Let me tell you where it's at
Hit me with your best shot

Hit me with your best shot
Hit me, hit me with your best love

Let me tell you where it's at
Hit me with your best shot

From Loving You

I had you, I had everything I ever needed
From that first look I knew
I'd found heaven in your eyes
But who was to know the way it would go
I have no regrets
Glad I let you in
Wouldn't have missed one single moment
I would do it all over again

Cause I was loved
I was touched
And I learned what love is
And I learned what love is
I was blessed, so blessed
Cause I learned what love is
I learned what love is
From loving you

I held you, I held everything I ever dreamed of
With that first kiss from you
All this world seemed oh so right
But who was to see the way it would be
I'll never forget
All the heaven that we shared
And I'll thank God for every moment
Every moment that I had you there

I was loved
I was touched
And I learned what love is
And I learned what love is
I was blessed, so blessed
Cause I learned what love is
I learned what love is
From loving you

Some people search their whole lives
Never find what I found in your eyes
Glad I got to get the chance to have you in my life
I won't be sad when I look back
Cause I was

I was loved
I was touched
And I learned what love is
And I learned what love is
I was blessed, so blessed
Cause I learned what love is
I learned what love is
From loving you
I learned what love is from loving you

17

It's hard to grow up
My heart won't fit in
Some people tell me, that you're not my kind
And I believe them, but I can't get you off my mind
Some people tell me that I should stay away
Maybe I will, some other day

Cause it feels right
You know it feels good
And I don't always do what I should
And I know what makes me happy
And in my heart you are it exactly

I don't wanna do right, I just want you tonight
Not just only in my dreams
Save my best behavior, for a little later
Cause I'm only 17
I think I made my mind up, I got time to grow up
Face responsibility
Livin' in the moment, keepin' my heart open
While I'm only 17
Only 17, I'm only 17

I'll learn my lessons, and I'll make mistakes
And If I get burned, it'll be my heart to break
It isn't easy, hearing what they say
Sometimes you've got to take a leap of faith

Cause it feels right
Yeah it feels good
And I'm not gonna do something stupid
Just this once, I wanna feel like
I can do what I want when I hold tight

I don't wanna do right, I just want you tonight
Not just only in my dreams
Save my best behavior, for a little later
Cause I'm only 17
Think I made my mind up, I got time to grow up
Face responsibility
Livin' in the moment, keepin' my heart open
While I'm only 17

Anyone, who's ever been in love
Has got to know
What it means to have a dream
And no one can say anything
To change my mind, no, not this time

Cause it feels right
You know it feels good
And I don't always do what I should
And I know what makes me happy
And in my heart you are it exactly

I don't wanna do right, I just want you tonight
Not just only in my dreams
Save my best behavior, for a little later
'Cause I'm only 17
Think I made my mind up, I got time to grow up
Face responsibility
Livin' in the moment, keepin' my heart open
While I'm only 17

I don't wanna do right, I just want you tonight
Not just only in my dreams
Save my best behavior, for a little later
'Cause I'm only 17
Think I made my mind up, I got time to grow up
Face responsibility
Livin' in the moment, keepin' my heart open
Cause I'm only 17
Only 17, only 17
Got time to grow up
Only 17

Split Chick

I can run as fast as the boys
I can sing and dance ballet
I can show you all of my toys
Though I'd rather be alone today
It's not that I don't like to hang around with you
And though you're fun, I'm on the run, so much to do
Gotta make the dreams I have come true
Cause life is what you make it and to waste it just won't do

Split chick
Gotta split, can't stay
That's the way I'm a split chick
Thanks a lot
Had fun, see you babe
Split in two, I'm a split chick

I can hold my breath forever
I can pledge allegiance in reverse
You know kids can be so clever
It can be a blessing or a curse
When I'm with you, I get lost in your eyes
I forget about the time and then I realize
I gotta run along
And sing my song
I'll kiss you and miss you and be back before too long

Split chick
Gotta split, can't stay
That's the way I'm a split chick
Thanks a lot
Had fun, see you babe
Split in two, I'm a split chick
Split chick
Gotta split, can't stay
That's the way I'm a split chick
Thanks a lot
Had fun, see you babe
Split in two, I'm a split chick

That's right
Every flower has to find a way to reach up to the sun
Even through the cracks in the sidewalk
Whatever, uh huh, sure

Gotta make the most of everyday
Making friends that'll help me on the way
I'll rise above the fear I feel
I'm gonna take these dreams and make 'em real

Split chick
Gotta split, can't stay
That's the way I'm a split chick
Thanks a lot
Had fun, see you babe
Split in two, I'm a split chick
Split chick
Gotta split, can't stay
That's the way I'm a split chick
Thanks a lot
Had fun, see you babe
Split in two, I'm a split chick
Split chick
Gotta split, can't stay
That's the way I'm a split chick
Thanks a lot
Had fun, see you babe
Split in two, I'm a split chick
Split in two, I'm a split chick
Split chick
Gotta split, can't stay
I'm outta here,
Goodbye

Cry

I'll always remember
It was late afternoon
It lasted forever
And ended so soon hey
You were all by yourself
Staring up at a dark grey sky
I was changed

In places no one will find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
Was there that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry (cry)
The moment that I saw you cry

It was late in September
And I've seen you before (and you were)
You were always the cold one
But I was never that sure
You were all by yourself
Staring up at a dark grey sky
I was changed

In places no one will find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was there that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry

I wanted to hold you
I wanted to make it go away
I wanted to know you
I wanted to make your everything alright

I'll always remember
It was late afternoon
In places no one will find

In places no one will find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
Oh no no forever was in your eyes
It was there that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry

Baby. cry
The moment that I saw you cry
Oh no no
I think I saw you cry
The moment I saw you cry
I wanted to know you
I wanted to know you
I wanted to know you

When I Talk to You

Remember me
Feels like forever
Since the days
When we were friends
Don't understand
All these changes
I'm still the same
No need to pretend
Where'd it go?
Do you know
Maybe it just doesn't matter

Cause when I try to talk to you
I feel like I'm not getting through to you
Where did we go wrong
It's hard to be strong
When I talk
When I talk to you

There were times
In the beginning
When you were there
When I needed you most
We'd sit and talk
About the future
And laugh about
Us getting old
Do you know
How it feels
I hope that you know that it matters

But when I try to talk to you
I feel like I'm not getting through to you
Where did we go wrong
It's hard to be strong
When I talk
When I talk to you
I want you to know everything that I am
Don't want to know what life would be without you

When I try to talk to you
I feel like I'm not getting through to you
Where did we go wrong
It's hard to be strong
When I talk
When I talk to you
When I talk to you
When I talk to you, hey
When I talk to you
When I talk to you
When I talk to you
When I talk to

Crush

You know everything that I'm afraid of
You do everything I wish I did
Everybody wants you, everybody loves you
I know I should tell you how I feel
I wish everyone would disappear
Everytime you call me, I'm too scared to be me
And I'm too shy to say.

Ooh, I got a crush on you
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush when I'm with you
Ooh, I got a crush on you.
A crush on you.

You know I'm the one that you can talk to
Sometimes you tell me things that I don't want to know
I just want to hold you
You say exactly how you feel about her
I wonder could you ever think of me that way

I got a crush on you
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush when I'm with you
Ooh, I got a crush on you.
A crush on you.

Ooh I wish I could tell somebody
But there's no one to talk to
Nobody knows I've got a crush on you
A crush on you.
I got a crush hey.

You say everything that no one says
But I feel everything that you're afraid to feel
How I'll always want you, How I'll always love you

I got a crush on you
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush when I'm with you
Ooh, I got a crush on you.
A crush on you.
I got a crush on you
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush when I'm with you
Ooh, I got a crush on you.
A crush on you.
