    (If There Was) Any Other Way

    Sorry I know I'm late
    Guess I lost all track of time
    Started walking and couldn't stop turning it
    over in my mind
    Trying to make some sense of it
    Trying to make the pieces fit
    I thought I covered my tracks so well
    But now he says he knew about it from the start
    Yeah he knew about us all along...

    If there was any other way love
    Don't you think I've tried to find it
    Don't you think I want to stay
    If there was any other way love
    There's no way out of this
    There just ain't any other way...

    Maybe I'd better be leaving now
    But there's something I want you to
    Understand before I go
    Sometimes we don't have a choice when we
    Play and break the rules
    I just had to see you darlin', one more time
    If only just to say goodbye
    ĎCos he knew about us all the time

    I never wanted it to be like this
    I never meant to get serious
    But now the thought of losing you
    Takes some getting used to

    If Love Is Out Of The Question

    You bought me flowers and you sold me a line
    You gave me compliments and too much wine
    I’ve played that game… I know all the moves

    You show emotion but you hide what you feel
    You play the innocent but I’ve watched you steal
    I rest my case… you stand accused

    But I must confess I was quite impressed
    You seduced me with your easy charm
    And I must admit I could fall for it

    But if love is out the question
    There’s no point to this affection
    I gotta have more than ecstasy
    Make me believe
    I’m all you’ll ever need
    ‘Cos if love is out the question
    Put a little heart in your intention
    I gotta have more than ecstasy
    Make me believe
    I’m all you’ll ever need…

    You talk in circles when I need a straight line
    You’ve got your principles and I’ve got mine
    We all need commitment that’s all I ask
    (Is that a crime?)

    And I must confess I was quite impressed
    I was losing to your winning ways
    But I must resist there’s no point to this

    But if love is out the question
    There’s no point to this affection
    I gotta have more than ecstasy
    Make me believe
    I’m all you’ll ever need…

    ‘Cos if love is out the quesion I just gotta stop
    Little point to this affection I just wanna stop
    It makes no sense to carry on like this
    If there’s nothing between us you don’t know
    what you’ll miss

    No love
    There’s no love
    Baby it’s true
    There’s no love

    But if love is out the question
    There’s no point to this affection
    ‘Cos if love is out the question
    Put a little heart in your intention

    Where Does My Heart Beat Now

    So much to believe in - We were lost in time
    Everything I needed I feel into your eyes
    Always thought of keepin - Your heart next to mine
    But now that seems so far away
    Don't know how love could leave without a trace
    Where do silent hearts go?

    Where does my heart beat now
    Where is the sound
    That only echoes through the night
    Where does my heart beat now
    I can't live without
    Without feeling it inside
    Where do all the lonely hearts go

    Candle in the water - Drifting helplessly
    Hiding from the thunder - Come and rescue me
    Driven by hunger - Of the endless dream
    I'm searching for the hand that I can hold
    I'm reaching for the arms that let me know
    Where do silent hearts go?

    I know that out there somewhere
    He waits for me
    Someone who's searching just like me
    Then one touch overcomes the silence
    Love still survives
    Two hearts needing one another
    Give me wings to fly
    I hear my heartbeat now
    I hear the sound
    Hear it echo through the night

    I feel my heart beat now
    Now that I've found
    The feeling lives inside
    I've got someone to give my heart to
    Feel it getting stronger and stronger and stronger
    Hearts are made to last
    Till the end of time

    The Last To Know

    Let me be the first to sayÖ
    Ainít it always so?
    But thereís no other way to find out
    What I need to know
    Itís not that I donít think you care
    Itís what you havenít said
    That keeps me guessing day and night
    Putting visions in my head

    Donít let me be the last
    If you thought of leaving would you tell me?
    Donít let me be the last
    If the truth would hurt me would you lie?
    Donít you keep it to yourself for my protection
    Break it to me now
    Donít let me be the last
    If thereís anything you wanna tell me
    Donít let me be the last
    Like youíre never gonna let me go
    Baby, all I ask
    Donít let me be the last to know

    You know how a friend will talk
    A secretís hard to keep
    But this girl she says youíre seeing
    Sure sounds a lot like me
    Still itís not for me to say
    If what I heard is true
    And I wonít let myself believe a word
    Till I hear it from you


    (Brock Walsh / Phil Galdston)

    I'm Loving Every Moment With You

    Do you realize how long it’s been
    Where does all my time with you go?
    And all the memories
    We shared as friends
    Reflected – in my heart
    Is where they show

    I’m loving every moment with you
    I’m living in a dream that’s comin’ true
    I’m lost in everthing you do
    I love you
    I’m saving every moment for you
    You’re hidden in a place that’s safe & true
    Lovin’ everything we do

    With every second
    You hold me near
    I’m closer to a place I want to be
    To hear you whisper
    But no one else can hear
    I want your love
    To stay forever – inside of me

    In our silence
    Looking in your eyes
    I hear words you don’t need to say
    Just hold on Baby
    ‘Cause it’s reason – I’m prayin’
    You feel what I feel
    In every way

    Love By Another Name

    Somewhere past midnight
    When the moment is just right
    We ride the streets of desire
    We take it slow and
    Always get where we’re goin’
    ‘Cause where there’s smoke there’s a fire

    There’s no denying
    We don’t need to keep trying
    Let’s face the music and dance

    Well it’s all semantic
    What we never say
    But what we feel ain’t goin’ away…

    So I wonder – how could we be feeling
    More than this
    Tell me true
    What it is, ’cause

    Something has to make us feel this way
    Love by another name
    Doesn’t matter ’cause it’s still the same love
    Won’t depend upon the words we say
    Love by another name
    Something happens when we’re making love

    Si ce n’est pas l’amour
    Qu’est-ce que c’est?

    We’re superstitious
    When every day is like Christmas
    No promise spoken
    Hearts don’t have to get broken
    More than a four letter word

    If we’re just pretending
    We can write a new ending
    If we don’t like where it leads

    Well it’s new romantic
    Action over words
    The sweetest nothings that I’ve heard

    I can’t tell you everything I’m feeling
    More than this
    Do you know
    What it is, ’cause

    I know that I can’t describe
    What I’m feeling inside
    Maybe I’ll learn
    I guess I live with the fear
    This could all disappear
    If I try to put it in words

    Unison

    Somewhere tonite we come alive
    Two hearts ignite weíre one of a kind
    Here we are undivided by anything
    Just you and I
    Weíve come so far no one else could ever
    Steal away what we confide
    Who wants to know?

    We stick together weíre never apart
    Everybody knows who we are
    Because we are one we do it in Unison
    We come together and stronger we are
    Just when the world can tear us apart
    We go on as one we do it in Unison

    Gleam of an eye, flash of a smile
    Never too shy playiní ever so wild
    Here we are Iím relying on no one else
    But you and I weíve come so far
    No one else could ever steal away what we
    Confide who wants to know?

    Rockiní as one thereís no time to stop
    I know what weíve got we do it in Unison

    Here we are undivided by anything
    Just you and I
    Weíve come so far no one else could ever
    Steal away what we confide
    Who wants to know?

    I Feel Too Much

    I just wanted you to talk to me
    But baby you captured my heart so easy
    And I know love, baby when I see it
    Boy when you're near me that's the
    Feeling I get

    It's pure emotion inside of me
    And all I know is I feel...

    Too much, too much baby all I do is think
    About you night and day I feel too -
    Too much, too much baby don't let go 'cause
    It's my heart you're takin'

    The spell that I'm under I can't undo
    But baby I wonder do you feel it too

    A classic case of infatuation
    Is it possible that I feel...

    It's a serious connection when I look into your eyes
    When you show me your affection, it's more than I realized


    (Tom Keane / Eric Pressly)

    If We Could Start Over

    I never found out why you walked away
    And never said goodbye
    But now that I see you
    I’m torn inside, but I’ve still got my pride

    I understand that some things are better left unsaid
    I’m afraid of the truth
    But what can I do if I still want you

    If we could start over again
    I know if we try our love could be stronger
    If we could start over again
    I’m sure, wo oh
    We’d never have to let go

    For so many years now
    I’ve held inside things I meant to say
    But faced with the past now I realize
    I can’t let that stand in our way

    I never knew that a love so strong would never fade
    But what can we do
    If I still want you
    And you want me too

    How can we walk away
    From something that was once so strong
    Have we the strength to say we’re wrong

    Have A Heart

    Lying in bed alone
    Thinkin’ ’bout how much I need you
    Oh, give me one more chance to see you again
    If only I’d have known
    It was the last time I’d be with you
    I would’ve held on and never let you go

    Baby, just have a heart
    I’m begging you
    Let me show you how much I need you
    Baby, just have a heart
    This much is true
    I miss your touch
    I’m still in love with you

    Here comes another day
    I don’t know if I can make it
    Oh, I just realized it’s so lonely being free
    Runnin’ from the pain
    I’m never gonna shake it
    Oh, how I need you to take it from me

    I always thought that I would have the upper hand
    But now I know that I’m really not that strong
    If I could only make you understand
    I’d give you the world but for a start


    (Aldo Nova / Billy Steinberg / Ralph McCarthy)
