  • FOOLING ME

Give me a taste of something strong

Lord I know what's going on

Can't just be what you want to be

Gonna be the death of me

Oh the same thing's on your mind

High and low, low and high

What's gonna be your alibi

Diamond ring you want to see

To know the real worth in me

Oh the same thing's on your mind

Well come on

Fooling me or fooling you

This paradise now baby

Ain't coming through

Get down now

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You never can tell what's going wrong

At nine below I'm feeling strong

See me rocking ain't satisfied

There ain't a single man alive

Oh the same thing's on your

Oh yes, the same thing's on your

Oh the same things on your mind

Well, come on now

Lord can't you see, ain't no more fooling me

Lord can't you see, ain't no more fooling me

Get down now

  • SOME SAY

Skies are blue

Yet my footsteps feel so dark

This sound of loneliness keeps beating in my heart

I'd change everything today, if I could

What would I know

Oh, what would I know, don't know

What is this thing that's plagued me all my life

Mistake my kindness for weakness every time

You've chosen fear over love

What can I say, rise above

Oh, please rise above, no no

Some say, this mystery won't survive

Some say, but it ain't true

Some say, that love can cut so deep

Some say, but not you, no but not you

Always in my mind

You know it's always in my mind

Can't you feel it

It all comes down to you

You know it all comes down to you

Can't you see it

In this dream that started long ago

When I awake tell me what will I be shown

It takes a lifetime

And, maybe you figure it out

But, have you learned

Oh, what have you learned

Have you learned

Oh, what have you learned

We haven't learned

No, we haven't learned

Can't you see this wonder now, that's right before you

Can't you see this wonder now, that's right before you

  • TURN IT UP

Don't hold back that's what I'm saying

Oh, baby that we should be playing

Desolation, it's gonna be

Six white horses stand in front of me

It keep on raining

In my head so loud

Oh, baby, so loud

Don't you take all that they're given

Oh baby. there can be no forgiven

And the talk of the town that matters

Is falling prey to this idle chatter

It keep on raining

In my head so loud

Oh, baby, so loud

No amount of love and no amount of tears you cry

Or get high

Will change my direction or change my connection to you

I ain't lying

Don't hold back, oh baby

Don't hold back, oh darling

It keep on raining

In my head so loud

Oh, baby, so loud

You're gonna find in the cool of the evening

Baby that you start believing

That the things that you really be loving

You gonna do them until they kill you

It keep on raining in my head so loud

Oh, baby

It keep on raining in my head so loud

Oh, baby

Turn it up, oh baby

Turn it up, oh darling

Turn it up, oh baby

Turn it up

So loud, turn it up

It's so loud, turn it up now

  • OUT OF TIME

Sometimes in the morning

You've been on my mind

You were saying that

I've been playing the fool

For sometime

I know we all get lonely

I get lonesome too

Maybe we could be together

Be that lonesome two

I just ran out of time

I just ran out of time

It's true

I just ran out of time

I just ran out of time

Over you, over you

Get down boy

I just ran out of time

I just ran out of time

It's true

I just ran out of time

I just ran out of time

Over you

Sometimes in the morning

You've been on my mind

We've been walking

We've been talking

Now we come to the end of the line

I just ran out of time

I just ran out of time

It's true

I just ran out of time

I just ran out of time

Over you

It's true

Sometime we all get lonely

  • FALLING DOWN

Oh won't you help me now

Help me to see the light

Just a little bit closer now

Little sister help me through this night

I know that I've been wrong

Wrong so many times

Oh yes if only being wrong

Was just in my mind

Yeah, in my mind, in my mind

Don't you send me flowers now

Baby I ain't dead yet

Stop talking 'bout redemption honey

You know it's a lousy bet

I know that I've been wrong

Wrong so many times

Oh yes if only being wrong

Was just in my mind Yeah, in my mind, in my mind

No it's always, in my mind

And all I want to say

This ain't no crying time

I've been trying hard for so long

But just can't, just can't seem to find

Don't you hear it calling me

Calling me so loud

This sound so sweet and low

I don't wanna turn it down

Wrong so many times

It's always underground

Gone, gone, gone

I didn't know it then

But I know it now

Gone, gone, gone

Cause he knows that he wants me to

He's my strong protection

Shining light coming through

Calling me lightning

Time is running out

You see it's over now

Gone, gone, gone

And the sacrifice

Well it's mighty high

Gone, gone, gone

Tells me to lean on him

Cause he knows that he wants me to

He's my strong protection

Shining light coming through

I just want to testify

Ain't no hesitation

May the lightning strike me down

You're my strong protection this side of town

Crush 'em my friend

Crush 'em down, crush 'em down

This is the end

  • ANOTHER HIGH

Lips so sweet

And her eyes so big

Her legs are long like

Like a mystery

You're just a memory

Oh, that I held in my arms

But, I never realized

Darling all your hidden charm

Guess I should have told you

Oh, way down the road

Somebody loved you

Baby, more than you know

You're just a memory

Oh, that I held in my arms

But, I never realized

Darling all your hidden charm

They say it's over in a blink of an eye

Or, is it just, my brother

Just another high

These are my reasons, oh for feeling this way

The more we talk about it

Baby, the less we say

Your just a memory I held in my arms

But, I never realized

Darling all your hidden charm

Darling you're a memory I held in my arms

Darling you're a memory

You got hidden charm
