Heart and Soul

Read Your Mind

We held hands and laughed
Then we jumped in the water
Off the jetty we'd fly
As the sun got hotter
We were any age
Floating through space
Happy for once in the human race
On this sweet Sunday, and into Monday
Your arms wrapped around me
Where my love has found me
Has finally found me
But am I really free?

If I could read your mind
I hope I'd find
The same love I have in mine
If I could go back in time
I'd try to find you
And make up for all this wasted time

Like a broken record
I've stayed protected
From promises, from disappointments
I wanna hear your dreams, wanna drift away
Wanna break you in
Oh I wanna stay
Stay in heaven, oh in heaven
And see my life finally begin
Will we be together, oh forever?
Darling please let me in

If I could read your mind
I hope I'd find
The same love I have in mine
If I could go back in time
I'd try to find you
And make up for all this wasted time

Oh I want to stay
In this sweet Sunday, and into Monday
Your arms wrapped around me
Where my love has found me
Has finally found me
But am I really free?

If I could read your mind
I hope I find
The same love I have in mine
If I could go back in time
I'd try to find you
And make up for all this wasted time
Na, na, na , na, na

If I could read your mind
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na , na, na
Na, na, na , na, na
If I could read your mind
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na , na, na

If I could read your mind

World Without Love

Please lock me away
And don't allow the day here inside
Where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say,
I won't stay in a world without love

Birds sing out of tune
And raindrops hide the moon
I'm ok, here I'll stay
With my loneliness

I don't care what they say,
I won't stay in a world without love

So I wait, and in a while
I will see my true love smile, yeah
He may come, I know not when
But when he does I'll know
So baby until then, lock me away
And don't allow the day here inside
Where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say,
I won't stay in a world without love

So I wait and in a while,
I will see my true love smile
He may come, I know not when
But when he does I'll know
So baby until then, lock me away
And don't allow the day here inside
Where I hide with my loneliness

I don't care what they say,
I won't stay in a world without love
I don't care what they say,
I won't stay in a world without love

100 Tears Away

Go ahead and cry now
Just give in to the madness
The only way to feel your joy
Is to first feel sadness

Go ahead and sail now
Just give in to the ocean
The only way to tame your fear
Is to feel her rocky motion

You're a long way from somewhere you call home, yeah
There's a place in your heart, you're not alone

All of the happiness you seek
All of the joy for which you pray
Is closer than you think
It's just 100 tears away

Go ahead and listen
Just give in to the voices
You think you're backed into a corner
But you've got so many choices
You're a long way from some place you feel safe
Peace of mind comes from just one place

All of the happiness you seek
All of the joy for which you pray
Is closer than you think
It's just 100 tears away

You're a long way from somewhere you call home, yeah
There's a place in your heart you're not alone
All of the happiness you seek
All of the joy for which you pray
Is closer than you think
It's just 100 tears away

Whatever it is that'll make you feel good
You can have if you want, if you knew that you could
It's closer than you think
It's just 100 tears away

Confetti

Skinny little brats
Walking down Avenue A
Dangling their cigarettes
Their Independence Day
Tears like filigrees
Wear them on their sleeves
Nobody's main squeeze
It's thirty-five degrees

Poetry of ordinary life
Is what I live for
They just wanna be seen
They just wanna be heard

My words are like Confetti
And you never pick them up
They'll fall to the ground
I need someone to lift me up

So diaphanous, so ephemeral
And all those bad words
They never learned in school
Groovy like my mamma was
In her black turtle neck
She was so high strung
She was so low tech

Poetry and tattooed dreams
And fourteen carat nose rings
The children of elite
Are trying to be street

My words are like confetti
And you never pick them up
They'll fall to the ground
I need someone to lift me up

My words are like confetti
And you never pick them up
They'll fall to the ground
I need someone to lift me up

Poetry of ordinary life
Is what I live for
They just wanna be seen
They just wanna be heard

My words are like Confetti
And you never pick them up
They'll fall to the ground
I need someone to lift me up

My words are like Confetti
And you never pick them up
They'll fall to the ground
I need someone to lift me up

Someday We'll Be Together

Someday we'll be together
(Oh, say it, say it, say it, say it again)
Someday we'll be together
(Oh, yes we will, yes we will)

You're far away, baby
From me my love, ooh yeah
And just as sure my, my baby
As there are stars above
I wanna say

Someday we'll be together
(Ah, yes we will, yes we will)
Someday, some sweet day
We'll be together
(Oh I know, I know, I know, I know)

My love is yours, baby
Right from the start, oh yeah
You, you, you possess my soul now honey
I know, I know you own my heart
And I wanna say

Someday, some sweet day
We'll be together
(Ah, yes we will, yes we will)
Someday, tell everybody
We'll be together
(Oh I know)

A long time ago, my, my sweet thing
I made a big mistake honey
I, said I, said goodbye
(Bye, bye, bye, bye)
(Baby, ever, ever)
(Ever, and ever, and ever)
Ever, since that day now
All I, all I wanna do
All I wanna do oh
Is cry, cry, cry

I long for you
Every, every night
Ooh, just to kiss your sweet lips baby
Hold you ever, and ever so tight,
And I wanna say

Someday, some sweet day
We'll be together
(Oh, yes we will, yes we will )
Someday we'll be together
(Oh I know, I know, I know, I know, I know)
Someday we'll be together
(Yes we will, yes we will)
Someday we'll be together

Baby, Don't You Break My Heart Slow - Duet With Emily Saliers

I like the way you wanted me
Every night for so long baby
And I like the way you needed me
Every time things got rocky

I was believing in you
Was I mistaken,
Do you say, do you say what you mean
I want our love to last forever

But I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

I like the way you'd hold me
Every night for so long baby
I like the way you'd say my name
In the middle of the night
While you were sleeping

I was believing in you
Was I mistaken
Do you mean, do you mean what you say
When you say our love could last forever

Well I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

You would run around and lead me on forever
While I wait at home still thinking we're together
I wanted our love to last forever

I was believing in you
I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow
I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow
Baby don't you break my heart slow

To Sir With Love - Duet with Al Green

The time has come for closing books and long last looks must end
And as I leave I know that I am leaving my best friend
A friend who taught me right from wrong and weak from strong
That's a lot to learn,
What, what can I give you in return?

If you wanted the moon
I would try to make a start
But I, would rather you let me give my heart
To you, with love

Those schoolgirl days of telling tales and biting nails are gone, yeah
But in my mind I know that they live on and on and on and on
But how do you thank someone
Who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
Well it it's not easy, but I'll try

If you wanted the sky
I would write across the sky in letters
That would soar a thousand feet high
To you, with love, alright

Those awkward years have hurried by, why did they fly, fly away?
Why is it Sir, children grow up to be people one day?
What takes the place of climbing trees,
And dirty knees, in the world outside?
What, what is there that I can buy?

If you wanted the world,
I'd surround it with a wall, I'd scrawl
These words with letters ten feet tall
To you, with love

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Got to say yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Got to say yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Got to say yeah
Yeah yeah
Got to say yeah
I got to say yeah
whoa

This is Crazy Now

Blown like the wind, restless again
My only friend has gone away
Washed like the tide but I'm still alive
I'm gonna drive all night long

This is crazy now, I'll fill the space somehow
If there were some way to get through
This is crazy now, I'll fill the space somehow
I can't walk away from you

Shaken like a leaf, sharpened like a reef
All of my senses need relief
Looking out to sea, I still believe
That you and I were meant to be

This is crazy now, I'll fill the space somehow
If there were some way to get through
This is crazy now (like a finger paint)
Fill the space somehow (smearing in the rain)
I can't walk away from you (wash it all away)

This is crazy now (shaken like a leaf)
I'll fill the space somehow (sharpened like a reef)
If there was someway to get through

This is crazy now (shaken like a leaf)
Fill the space somehow (sharpened like a reef)
I can't walk away from you
I can't walk away from you

Sweet Inspiration

I need your sweet inspiration
I need you here on my mind
Every hour of the day
Without your sweet inspiration
The lonely hours of the night
Just don't go my way

A woman in love
Needs sweet inspiration
Yeah, and honey that's all I ask,
That's all I ask from you
I gotta have your sweet inspiration, yeah
You know there just ain't no tellin'
What a satisfied woman might do

The way you call me baby, baby
Is such a sweet inspiration
The way you call me darlin', darlin'
Sets my heart to skating
And if I'm out in the rain, baby
And in a bad situation
You know I just reach back in my mind
And there I find your sweet, sweet inspiration

Sweet inspiration
Oh what a power
And I've got the power
Every hour of the day
I need your sweet inspiration
To go on, to go on living
To keep on giving this way

I need your sweet
Sweet inspiration, sweet inspiration, sweet inspiration, sweet inspiration
Sweet, sweet inspiration
Sweet, sweet inspiration
I need, sweet inspiration

This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak For You)

Oh, this old heart of mine
Been broke a thousand times
Each time you break away
I feel you're gonna stay
Lonely nights that come,
Memories that flow
Bringing you back again,
Hurting me more and more

Maybe it's my mistake to show this love I feel inside
Cause each day that passes by
You got me never knowing if I'm coming or going, but I

I love you,
This old heart darling (darling) weeps for you
I love you, yes I do (yes I do) yeah

These old arms of mine
Miss having you around
Makes these tears inside
Start falling down, well
Always with half a kiss
You remind me of what I miss
So I try to control myself
Like I'm gonna start fainting, cause my heart stops beating, cause I

I love you,
This old heart darling weeps for you (weeps for you)
I love you, yes I do (yes I do)

Oh I try to hide my hurt inside
This old heart of mine always makes me cry
The way you treat me leaves me incomplete
You're in for the day, gone for the week, now
But if you leave me a hundred times
A hundred times I'll take you back
I'm yours whenever you want me
I'm not too proud to shout it,
Tell the world about it, cause I

I love you
This old heart darling (darling) weeps for you
I love you
This old heart darling weeps for you (weeps for you)
I love you
This old heart darling (darling) weeps for you
I love you, yes I do (yes I do)

Crying

I was alright for awhile,
I could smile for awhile
But I saw you last night,
You held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say "Hello",
Oh you wished me well,
You couldn't tell, that I'd been

Crying over you,
Crying over you
When you said "so long",
Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying,
Crying, crying, crying crying
It's hard to understand
How the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it's true, oh so true
I love you even more
Than I did before,
But darling what can I do?
For you don't love me
And I'll always be

Crying over you,
Crying over you
Yes, now you're gone
And from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying, crying, crying
Yes crying,
Crying over you

I Know Him By Heart

There's a secret path I follow
To a place no one can find
Where I meet my perfect someone
I've kept hidden in my mind
Where my heart makes my decisions
'Till my dream becomes a vision
And the love I feel
Makes him real someday

'Cause I know he's out there somewhere
Just beyond my reach
Though I've never really touched him
Or ever heard him speak
Though we've never been together
We've never been apart
No we've never met
Haven't found him yet
But I know him by heart

Am I living in an illusion?
Wanting something I can't see
If I compromise, I'd be living lies
Pretending love's not meant to be
'Cause I know my heart's worth saving
And I know that he'll be waiting
So I'll hold on and I'll stay strong 'till then

'Cause I know he's out there somewhere
Just beyond my reach
Though I've never really touched him
Or ever heard him speak
Though we've never been together
We've never been apart

No we've never met
Haven't found him yet
But I know him by heart
No we've never met
Haven't found him yet
But I know him by heart

Vincent (Starry Starry Night)

Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
They did not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now
Starry, starry night

Hidden Persuasion

There's hidden persuasion within your eyes
Your charming indifference is but a disguise
I would be glad to love you if love is in the deal
But I must feel quite certain that the love is for real

Your hidden persuasion seems quite sincere
Perhaps my evasion is meaningless fear
Since every gain requires the element of chance
Here's hoping at least we'll find romance

Your hidden persuasion seems quite sincere
Perhaps my evasion is meaningless fear
Since every gain requires that element of chance
Here's hopin' at least we'll find romance, yeah
Here is hoping at least we'll find romance

What Becomes of the Brokenhearted

As I walk this land with broken dreams
I have visions of many things
Love's happiness is just an illusion
Filled with sadness and confusion.

What becomes of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed?
I know I've got to find
Some kind of peace of mind, maybe

The fruits of love grow all around
But for me they come tumbling down.
Every day heartaches grow a little stronger
I can't stand this pain much longer

I walk in shadows searching for light
Cold and alone, no comfort in sight,
Hoping and praying for someone to care
Always moving and going nowhere

What becomes of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed?
I know I've got to find
Some kind of peace of mind, baby

I'm searching though I don't succeed,
But someone there has a growing need.
Oh, he is lost, there's no place for beginning,
All that's left is an unhappy ending.

Now what's become of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed?
I know I've got to find
Some kind of peace of mind
I'll be searching everywhere
Just to find someone to care.
I'll be looking every day
I know I'm gonna find my way
Nothing's gonna stop me now
I will find a way somehow

(What's become, what's become,
What's become of the brokenhearted
What's become, what's become,
What's become of the brokenhearted)
I know, ohh yeah
