Track Name: One Night
People always ask how I knew you were the one for me
How I could see clearly in such a crowded sea
But when I travel back there
To that moment in time, well it just flew right by me

That evening I was caught off guard when you walked in
No one could have suspected that this was happening
Even I can’t explain it
But I know that there’s only just one way to say it

It only took one night to know that you’d be my lover
It only took one night for me to fall in love with you
And even in the moonlight, I knew there’d never be another
It only took one night for me to fall in love with you

Stumbling around for years, you know it brought me down
Dancing dancing dancing in all the wrong places, just running around
And when I finally surrendered
I could see through the dark, there you were at the center

And even though you’ve gone on, I still believe it was the right place at the right time
The right place at the right time
And now I know we’ll be together again, together again, together agin
So until then, I’ll be here
at the bar, telling anyone who wants to hear that

It only took one night to know that you’d be my lover
It only took one night for me to fall in love with you
And even in the moonlight, I knew there’d never be another
It only took one night for me to fall in love with you

Now every day a stranger hears me say
That in some typical way, we’ll meet again someday
Track Name: Come On
It's hard to share you with anyone else
I want to keep you close, keep you for myself
Cause you and I are one of a kind
It's such a lovely thing to find
So if it's true that you are really mine

Gonna take you away with me
Somewhere that we can be
As we are, it might be far
Come on, baby come on

Now is the time to run
Won't be seen by anyone
Don't be late cause I can't wait
Come on, baby come on

I'll wait outside your place later tonight
Be quiet as you leave and we'll make it out alright
So pack your things the best you can
We won't be coming back again
The time has come to execute the plan

Gonna take you away with me
Somewhere that we can be
As we are, it might be far
Come on, baby come on

Now is the time to run
Won't be seen by anyone
Don't be late cause I can't wait
Come on, baby come on

Oh take me back to the place where I am from
Oh take me back to the place where I am from

Gonna take you away with me
Somewhere that we can be
As we are, it might be far
Come on, baby come on

Now is the time to run
Won't be seen by anyone
Don't be late cause I can't wait
Come on, baby come on
Track Name: Back In Time
Back in the summertime
You owned my only peace of mind
But you left, taking all I had to give

Now in another life
You’re back looking for my time
But I won’t go down that road again

So just keep on passing me, keep on passing me by
Cause I know, yes I know you weren’t right

Where you had to go
I don’t know where you were and I don’t know

Go on and say, go on and say
Just say that you had never meant to hurt me bad   
Cause I know, yes I know that isn’t true, yes I do
What you chose to do

Go on and say, go on and say, go on and say
Had no other way to go, you had no other way to go
cause I know it’s not true, it was up to you

Back in the summertime
No one could ever change my mind about you
But now I’ve come to

So just keep on passing me, keep on passing me by
Cause I know, yes I know you weren’t right

Where you had to go
I don’t know where you were and I don’t know

I don’t have time for your new intentions
Whether you know or not, you had an effect on every day gone by
Since you disappeared

So many nights I had to be wrong
Waking up and think your home
Cause I know I’m on that road again

So just keep on passing me, keep on passing me by
Cause I know, yes I know you weren’t right

Back in the summertime
You owned my only peace of mind
But you left, taking all I had to give
Track Name: Which Way
I don’t care which road we take
I’ll go as long as I have you right by my side
I will go along

You can lead the way
You can pick the day
I will go where you do

Cause we can, we can begin again
We can, we can begin again
Taking our time to do it right
Cause I won’t waste another night

Take me to the place we met
So I can take a picture and never forget
How we were that day

You can lead the way
You can pick the day
I will go where you do

Cause we can, we can begin again
We can, we can begin again
Taking our time to do it right
Cause I won’t waste a night

Oh and for the first time
I am in the right place at the right time
And I’ll be staying here as long as I can
Oh and baby this time
I’ll be in the right place for a long time
And I’ll be staying here, staying here
Track Name: Are You Gonna
Are you gonna go with it?
Are you gonna flow with it?
I gotta know know know right now now now
I gotta know know know right now now now
Are you gonna go with it?
Can you really roll with it?
I gotta know know know right now now now
I gotta know know know right now now now

I see ‘em all downstream
Where they can all believe
That this is how it’s got to be
It’s not for me, it’s not for me
Cause I got a feeling that your feet are cold
Well maybe I'm being just a little too bold to ask

Are you gonna go with it?
Are you gonna flow with it?
I gotta know know know right now now now
I gotta know know know right now now now
Are you gonna go with it?
Are you gonna roll with it?
I gotta know know know right now now now
I gotta know know know right now now now

Sometimes you got to make a move
When you don’t know just what to do
That’s when you got to follow through
With what’s in front of you

I got a feeling that your feet are cold
Maybe I'm crazy but I really need to know

Are you gonna go with it?
Are you gonna flow with it?
I gotta know know know right now now now
I gotta know know know right now now now
Are you gonna go with it?
Can you really roll with it?
I gotta know know know right now now now
I gotta know know know right now now now
Track Name: Unerasable Love
I want to know why it's you haunting me

I see your breath, I hear your feet
I feel your body shadowing me

I can't remember your face
The song of your voice I can't place

All the way through the back door of my mind
You've come back after all this time

I want to know why it's you haunting me

Oh I couldn't let you go
You're just an unerasable love, an unerasable love
And oh, I guess I should have known
You're just an unerasable love, an unerasable love

I cut you up, I swept you out
I used my hands to push you into the ground

Our love was murdered and buried back then
How has it come back from the dead again

I want to know why it's you haunting me

Oh I couldn't let you go
You're just an unerasable love, an unerasable love
And oh, I guess I should have known
You're just an unerasable love, an unerasable love
Track Name: Bad Day
Go and tell me bout the kind of day that you have had
Get it off your chest and you won’t feel so bad

Let me guess, everything went wrong that could have
Would you say nothing went just as it should have?

Everybody’s gonna have a bad day every now and then
That’s why you gotta take the high way and pick yourself up again

I know it seems the world has gone and turned on you
But what a perfect shot to show what you can do

So every time you get down, you gotta get back up
That’s the only way we’re gonna get to the good stuff

Everybody’s gonna have a bad day every now and then
That’s why you gotta take the high way and pick yourself up again
Track Name: Tell Me
I can’t meet your eyes whenever I try
To ask if you notice it too

This little feeling that something’s different
An energy between you and me

Oh I didn’t know, it didn’t cross my mind
We were young, we had to go and take our time

Now you tell me what I want to hear
Am I dreaming, is this really real
Cause you tell me, just tell me

There was that one night out til the first light
What a surprise locked in your eyes

We shared the dancebeat, we ruled the backseat
A kingdom for two, just me and you

Oh I wanna know what’s going through your mind
Say it to me slow and take your time

Now you tell me what I want to hear
Am I dreaming, is this really real
Cause you tell me, just tell me

I can’t I can’t believe it
I can’t I can’t believe it
But everytime that i see it
I have to have to believe it
I can’t I can’t believe it
I can’t I can’t believe it
But everytime that i see it
I have to have to


You tell me what I want to hear
Am I dreaming, is this really real

Cause you tell me what I want to hear
Am I dreaming, is this really real
You tell me, just tell me
Track Name: Don't Say Goodbye
If you must go and leave today
I won’t protest or stand in your way
I’ll hold you close until it’s time
Just know that I won’t say goodbye

No final words from me
I need something to believe

So don’t look back if you should cry
Just kiss me please don’t say goodbye

I always knew this day would come
The desert cried that it had won
But only part of us must die
If you just go and don’t say goodbye

I’ll wake next to you again
though I don’t know how or when

It’s much too soon so we must try
to say “so long,” don’t say goodbye
