I’m getting too old for promises And dreams that I never can start I’m just a little too tired of loving you baby From this corner of my heart But every time I try, I cannot find the ways to part With the hope that you might find me in this corner of my heart Corner of my heart It was all that you would let me give to you It was all I had left to take away Maybe I should have known That you would never wait as long as you thought I guess that time just moves a little bit different From this corner of my heart But you called me with a whisper baby And you begged me to come this far Now you hand me an invitation to this corner of my heart (Repeat chorus)
2.
Well I know you think you're safe and secure And everything you ever wanted was yours Well baby that may be true, but tell me what does it mean When it's so late at night and honey you start to dream You dream of the one thing that you've never seen So baby lay down your arms And surrender to me, yeah baby…surrender Just surrender to me Oh baby, surrender...just surrender to me Surrender...just surrender to me Yeah baby, surrender Come on and give me a reason baby Show me how you feel Just a reason baby Well it’s getting late, and we’ve both been here before There’s no need to knock now baby, you just open the door And maybe just for tonight you'll let me help you know How to handle the one thing baby you've been reluctant to show Cause, I’ve got you surrounded and there’s nowhere to go (Repeat Chorus)

Claudine 05:26
It was late, they were beautiful Everybody hoping to see Something rare, something wonderful Someone more than they'd ever be I was tired, I'd been turned around I had taken too long to see That I was searching for a miracle In a temple where I could not believe Ah, but that's when I saw Claudine Oh, that's when I saw Claudine She said, "How long have you been standing there Now sit right down and tell me your name" "I was lost for a while," I said "But maybe you're the reason I came" She just laughed, and as she smiled at me She said,"It's best if we don't try to explain Because I can see we've both been wrong before Just take me someplace I've never been" And then the night just dissolved to Claudine Oh, the night just dissolved to Claudine Claudine Tell me I won't wake from a dream If I should call your name...Claudine If I should call your name...Claudine Well, I'd been caught by an echo And I'd been carried from the ground by a breeze And though we both could see what Heaven was like We never cleared the tops of the trees "You've been so kind," she said,"But still I have to go Though it seems you might just have what I need But if you're sure that I'm what you've been waiting for I'll tell you something else to believe... Well, you can just wait some more for Claudine Oh baby, just wait some more for Claudine" Claudine Tell me I won't wake from a dream If I should call your name...Claudine If I should call your name...Claudine (Repeat Chorus)

If I wrote down a song for you Now what would I say Can the words that belong to you Ever be found in a day It's not that I'm lazy, it's not that I'm blind You might think I'm crazy But, I've just been taking my time To paint you in flowers or in a room by the sea Or maybe just close your eyes And I'll try to sing you to sleep Because I will remember So much more than I can say La la la la la la la la La la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la La la la la la la Sometimes I wander With nowhere to stay Over the hills awhile And then I land where I may We followed the stars that night And the moon on the sea The morning was somewhere nearby And you were somewhere near me "Do you know where we're going"you said, "And how long can we stay" "It's not that I'm lost" I said, "It's just that I'm finding my way" But I will remember So much more than I can say (repeat chorus)

Unlucky 04:24
My daddy's dog used to bite me when no one was looking The neighbor kids used to pull my hair And Santa Claus used to fly right past our chimney Come Christmas morning there was nothing there "It ain’t your fault boy, I read it in the Bible" That's what my grandma used to say "It’s just the truth boy, cause I ain’t one to libel Some folks lives just come that way" "Oh, you're just unlucky baby, that's what you are It’s plain to see that you’re unlucky baby, from near and far" I used to dream that someone could love me I used to dream that life was fair Til I was taught, that God above me Well, he ain’t blind, he just don't care So late one night while they was sleeping I turned up the gas and walked away I dropped a match as I was leaving And I spoke those words my grandma said "Oh, you're just unlucky, that's what you are It’s plain see that you're unlucky, from near and far"

She was everybody’s dream At least that’s the way it seemed to me We used to hide just to see her walk on by Because she was everybody’s dream Now we all heard her daddy was a colonel Her momma died they said, when she was young And on sunny days she’d lay flowers on her grave She’d say herself a prayer, then head on home If only I’d the chance to hold her And carry all her troubles through the night If she could only see, a place she’d never be I think that things’d probl’y turned out right Well, no one heard the shot that Sunday morning She called the police herself the neighbors said And there was nothing I could say when they took her away They walked her to the car and she was gone If only I’d the chance to hold her And carry all her troubles through the night If she could only see, a place she’d never be I think that things’d probl’y turned out right (Repeat 1st Verse)

C’est étrange, de te connaître sans t’avoir rencontrée Inconnue tu arrives d’un lointain passé Une chanson non enseignée Pourtant je sais la jouer A quoi ça sert de le dire Puisque tu sais ce que je décris Peut-être ce soir, montre moi ou nous allons Parce que tout paraît bien, et nous sommes ici maintenant Toi et moi ne trouvons pas notre trajet Mais, peut-être juste pour ce soir nous pourrions y rester C’est juste un rêve où nous marchons Tu disparais sans un son Chaque fois je pense que je t’ai perdue Te voila ré-apparue Quand je respire je sens ton cœur A travers tes yeux je vois C’est clair que t’as pas oublié Quand ce moment est arrivé Mais peut-être ce soir, montre moi ou nous allons Parce que tout paraît bien, et nous sommes ici maintenant Toi et moi ne trouvons pas notre trajet Mais, peut-être juste pour ce soir nous pourrions y rester Peut-être ce soir, peut-être ce soir Peut-être juste pour ce soir nous pourrions y rester

There is a painter that I know Who keeps her pictures locked away She reveals her colors only shade by shade She reveals an art that has no name No name at all, no name She is the kind that walked alone Sometimes it's easier for her to be But ever since the time she passed my way She stopped and stayed a while with me With me alone, with me She stirs beside me in her sleep In a restless dream she takes my hand If I could only find the words to say I'd paint your portrait Marianne Marianne my love...
9.
If I could walk to the very edge of the world And then I climbed to the top of every mountain I’d see Well I know I know I know I'd never find Another love like this No, because with your love I don't wonder any more Which way I should begin And with your love I don't need to search the whole world over Because you’re here...yeah, my love is here There ain't no secret, don't have that much to tell But, one day when I wasn't looking I saw you standing right there And I swear knew I knew I knew just what I'd found When I saw you smile With your love I don't wonder any more Which way I should begin And with your love I don't need to search the whole world over Because you’re here...yeah,our love is here
10.
Some folks find diamonds in faraway hills And gold in long forgotten streams And I myself once crossed an ocean Blindly searching for a dream But sometimes treasures come and go And all your hopes can run you through And just when I thought I'd lost my reason to believe Baby, that's when I discovered you That's when I discovered you Like a whisper on the wind And when I found the place that echo first began Baby, you taught me how to dream again Sometimes a moment can haunt you baby Sometimes your love is more like fear You can turn away a thousand times And close your eyes to what is near Until there's nowhere left to go And you find there's nothing new It's just a circle we were following by heart And baby that's where I discovered you That's where I discovered you Like a whisper on the wind And when I found the place that echo first began Baby, you taught me how to dream again (Repeat Chorus)
11.
I Need You 03:22
I've got something on my mind That scares me so much I could cry I woke up this morning in your bed dear And I realized I finally knew why I'm like a stray dog that longs for a choker The way a cyclone confuses the sky How bad news can help to remind you To get what you can before you die That's how I need you baby, I need you Now I've lived my life all alone dear And it's easy to see why I've tried Cuz sometimes what you never wanted baby Is just what you need to get by Now my daddy always said I was crazy My momma always said I was sad No one but you understands me And no one's ever hurt me that bad That's why I need you baby, I need you I'm like a stray dog that longs for a choker The way a cyclone confuses the sky How bad news can help to remind you To get what you can before you die That's how I need you baby, I need you
12.
Meagan 05:36
It seems so long ago I used to sit and dream Of a woman who could rescue me And Meagan was her name I was only 15 and she was five years more The green eyed widow of a sailing man Who never came to shore Meagan played the violin And painted pictures of the sky And time would make no difference As the days would pass us by Meagan made no promises She'd never seen one keep She gave her love in solitude And awaited what would be And Meagan is a song to me A lyric never heard A harmony to live beside That comes without a word And though I'll never find her She wanders in my dreams I can hear her play on stormy days Where the heather meets the sea And Meagan plays for me... I am now an older man And I've seen more than my share Of women who I'd hoped to love But none was much like her My first wife was an actress Who left to see the world The second was a debutante Who got what she deserved Now I'm looking back at innocence And I'm looking back on dreams I'm looking back where better days Are never what they seemed I'm looking back toward shadows That were never really there I'm looking back at Meagan The wind is blowing through her hair And Meagan is a song to me A lyric never heard A harmony to live beside That comes without a word And though I'll never find her She wanders in my dreams I can hear her play on stormy days Where the heather meets the sea And Meagan plays for me...
13.
Nobody knows me I'm not the girl that I'm supposed to be Sit by my window and dream all day Nobody ever heard a word I say Oh, but you did when you looked my way Mr. Substitute man...ohhh Mr. Substitute Man I never learned what they told me They couldn't teach what you showed me Now I've got a secret that I can't tell They'll try and take from me what they never felt So I'll just keep our lesson plans to myself, Mr. Substitute Man Ohhh, Mr. Substitute Man I never wanted more than I just gave to you tonight Is it all right Make it all right Won't you please, Mr. Substitute Man Ohhh, Mr. Substitute Man Do you want do you want do you want some candy Do you want do you want do you want some candy I never wanted more than I just gave to you tonight Is it all right Make it all right Won't you please, Mr. Substitute man Do you want do you want do you want some candy Do you want do you want do you want some candy Do you want do you want do you want some candy

Jamie 03:12
The New Year had passed Something found and someone lost As Jamie headed homeward in the snow Somehow he had taken the wrong direction And wondered if he'd make it back again And Jamie looked for company and Jamie trusted love And Jamie walked in circles more than once A trail of fond remembrance always led him And followed him like footprints in the snow Where are you going my lonely one The moon has just begun to shine Stop and look because we've both been here before And we'll pass again Jamie knew a woman once Who collected fallen leaves One for every lover she misplaced And Jamie now remembered how he'd meant to tell her That she'd never seen the forest for the leaves Then Jamie laughed as he realized That he was guilty of the same He remembered every confidence time betrayed In some ways he was searching for forgiveness At the hand of each companion that he'd made Now where are you going my lonely one The moon has just begun to shine Stop and look because we've both been here before And we'll pass again
15.
I See You 04:40
Here you go again but I’m not playing Or maybe I’ve just finally learned to be wise Cause it was long ago that I leaned the difference Now I don’t hold a grudge, I just open my eyes And I see you, I remember who you are And the things that you do Yeah, I see you, I remember who you are And the things that you do And here we are, you and me We’re goin’ round and round and round again But something’s changed and you don’t see I know this feels familiar but it’s not the same Oh no no no, Because I see you I remember who you are And the things that you do Now I know some people might say that this ain't fair "We’ve all been younger once. Why don’t you leave it right there" But growing something older doesn’t make it new And lookin’ out a different window doesn’t change the view Oh no no no, And now I see you I remember who you are And the things that you do And here we are, you and me We’re goin’ round and round and round again But something’s changed still you don’t see I know this feels familiar but it’s not the same Oh no no no Because I see you I remember who you are and the things that you do Yeah, I see you, I remember who you are And the things that you do
16.
I knew you long before I met you Or, was it yesterday Like a song that no one taught me But I know exactly what to play Well I could go on and on But I know that I don't have to Cause you already know what I would say So maybe tonight, You could show me where were going Because everything feels right And tomorrow we'll be gone Now you and I may never find our way But maybe just for tonight you and I could stay It's just a dream that we've been walking You disappear without a sound And every time I think I lost you You keep coming back around And when I breathe I feel your heartbeat When I look it's through your eyes And I can see you still remember When this moment first arrived So maybe tonight, You could show me where were going Because everything feels right And tomorrow we'll be gone Now you and I may never find our way But maybe just for tonight you and I could stay Maybe tonight…maybe tonight Maybe just for tonight you and I could stay
17.
"Don't lean on me", she said," I can barely stand at all I won't be there to comfort you every time I fall I can't explain the darkness And I don't know where I am But you see me much too clearly now And I don't want you looking in There's nothing that you didn't do There's nothing that you can say Just pretend this never happened here And safely go your way" And I don't know if I love you But I'm afraid that maybe I do I just can't afford to lose myself To thoughts of you You I thanked her for the warning As she lay across my chest She held on to me tightly Like a drowning man at rest I said,"I'm not looking for forever I'm not looking for a friend I'm not looking to lose my heart to you Just misplace it once again It's too late to turn backwards It's too late to say goodnight So wake up now it's morning dear And I'm right here by your side" And I don't know if I love you But I'm afraid that maybe I do And from time to time I lose myself To thoughts of you You
