How Much Love

How can I tell you
To put it all in words
There is so much left to say
But the meaning slips away
How can I show you
To see it through my eyes
Don’t deny that part of you
That’s been dying for it too

How do I know if I give you too much
Will I scare you away
How do I know when to leave you alone
When to beg you to stay

I wanna know
Just how much love does it take
to get to you
I stand here ready to break
Tell me, tell me
How much love does it take

Moment to moment
I don’t know where it stands
Will I end up like the rest
Well it’s anybody’ guess
Can I persuade you
So softly in a touch
If it’s all a waste of time
Well I’m only wasting mine

How do I know if I give you too much
Will I scare you away
How do I know when to leave you alone
When to beg you to stay

I wanna know
Just how much love does it take
to get to you
I stand here ready to break
Tell me, tell me
How much love does it take

How do I know when to leave you alone
When to beg you to stay
I wanna know

Just how much love does it take
To get to you
I stand here ready to break
Tell me, tell me
Just how much love does it take
It’s up to you
I stand here ready to break
Tell me, tell me
Oh tell me, tell me
How much love does it take

Keep It Right Here

You are the love without exception
You’re in my book of answered prayers
No need to change your heart’s direction
At every crossroad I’ll be there

Through endless nights and life’s confusion
Just simply sound your heart’s alarm
I guarantee you’ll find compassion
Right here within these open arms
There will be nights some restless nights
When you’re alone your thoughts start to wander
Wonderin’ if it’s right, you search the night
Baby you’re home, why look any farther

Keep it right here,
Keep it right here
Your sweet love
Keep it right here,
Keep it right here
Your sweet love

You are the love that I can count on
The only one who truly cared
Deep in your eyes I found my fortune
I treasure every night we’ve shared
There will be nights some restless nights
When you’re alone your thoughts start to wander
Wonderin’ if it’s right, you search the night

Baby you’re home, why look any farther

Keep it right here,
Keep it right here
Your sweet love
Keep it right here,
Keep it right here
Your sweet love

When you’re lost and lonely
Nowhere to turn
Call out my name
There’s no need to face it alone
You know the answer
Deep in your heart
Don’t doubt what we’ve got
Cause baby you’re home

You are the love without exception
You’re in my book of answered prayers
No need to change your heart’s direction
At every crossroad I’ll be there

Keep it right here,
Keep it right here
Your sweet love
Keep it right here,
Keep it right here
Your sweet love

Is This Love

I’ve heard talk of blind devotion
Lovers through thick and thin
Lives touched with real emotion
Faithful till the bitter end

Now I must admit that the story’s attractive
I’ve lost in far too many affairs
I’ve seen all the pain that the morning can bring

I need to prove to myself
This is more than a crush
Can you convince me
It’s not just a physical rush

Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love that’s been keepin’ me up all night
Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love

So many nights in blind confusion
I’ve walked the line of love
We reach out in disillusion
When one night isn’t nearly enough

Now I’d like to know that for once in my life
I’m sure of what tomorrow may bring
I’ve heard all your talk
Can I take it to heart

Now look me straight in the eye
‘Cause tonight is the night
We’ve got to ask each other
If the moment is right

Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love that’s been keepin’ me up all night
Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love

I’ve tread those mean streets
Blind alleys where the currency of love changes hands
All touch, no feeling
Just another one night stand

I need to know that there’s someone who cares
Could you be the angel to answer my prayers

Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love that’s been keepin’ me up all night
Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love

Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love that’s been keepin’ me up all night
Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love
Is this love

Man Against the World

Have you ever walked alone at night
Like a man against the world
No one takes your side
A boat against the tide
When your faith is shaken you start to break
And you heart can’t find the words
Tossed upon the sand
I give you a man against the world
All the people cheer ’til the end is near
And the hero takes a fall
Then they’ll drag you through the mud
You’re only flesh and blood
I have walked the path from dark to light
And they’ve yet to come to terms
Alone I take my stand
I’m only a man against the world

And love, like a distant reminder
It tugs at my shoulder
It calls me home
I shout, can a single voice carry
Will I find sanctuary within your arms
Someday when the answer’s clearer
Someday when I even the score
You’ll reach and you’ll find me near you
Right beside you
Forevermore

But for now I’ll walk the night alone
Like a man against the world
A brand new day will shine
Through the avalanche of time
Now the road’s grown long, but the spirit’s strong
And the fire within still burns
Alone I take my stand
I give you a man against the world

Rebel Son

You’re still young, still so sure
So determined you can find the cure
You’ve always been the driven one
Speak your mind, rebel son
In your eyes, wildfires rage
You read between the lines on every page
Take your chances while you’re young
Seek the truth, rebel son
Shatter the silence
Fill the night with your righteous defiance
While you’ve still got the will to run

Take your message to the street tonight — rebel son
There’s a distant voice that’s callin’ you —
Through the darkest night — fight the fight — rebel son
To yourself alone you must be true — rebel son

Stand your ground, against the tide
The proof of history is on your side
Fight the cause for everyone
Dare to dream — rebel son
Shatter the silence
Fill the night with your righteous defiance
While you’ve still got the will to run

Take your message to the street tonight — rebel son
There’s a distant voice that’s callin’ you —
Through the darkest night — fight the fight — rebel son
To yourself alone you must be true — rebel son

In the dark, thunder in your heart
Can’t you hear the sound and fury in the night
Feel the heat, rising from the street
Passion runs so deep
To match the fire in your eyes

Take your message to the street tonight — rebel son
There’s a distant voice that’s callin’ you —
Through the darkest night — fight the fight — rebel son
To yourself alone you must be true — rebel son

Oceans

Into the night, two of a kind
We rode the crest of the wave
Are we destined to leave love behind
I’ll pay the price, just tell me the cost
To save something here in our heart
Something dear that cannot be lost
And I can’t help but wonder out loud
If only we could go back to square one
If finally we could pinpoint where we lost touch
I stand alone, reaching out my hand to you

Oceans between us
Strangers upon the shore
Like islands we stand alone
Oceans between us now
Oceans surround us
Stand and watch as they disappear
To challenge the rising tide
Or drown in a sea of tears

We shut out the hurt, we cast love aside
Stubborn beyond the point of all reason
Stranded by pride
Craving your touch, oh, under its spell
Knowing for certain that no one on earth
Could love you so well
And I know that you’re wondering now
If only we could go back to square one
If finally we could pinpoint, where we lost touch
I stand alone, reaching out my hand to you

Oceans between us
Strangers upon the shore
Like islands we stand alone
Oceans between us now
Oceans surround us
Stand and watch as they disappear
To challenge the rising tide
Or drown in a sea of tears

When Seconds Count

Can’t remember just how it ended
I’m hazy as to how it began
Crazy how our lives got so tangled
Now we’re simply silent partners again
Secretly walking a tightrope
Come fall into the arms of the past-

Cause it’s still the same me
Still the same you
Who swore those promises would still ring true..

So when your heart cries out
In the middle of a sleepless night
And your suddenly so lonely
When seconds count
Count on me, count on me

Special moments taken for granted
Tenderness that found no reward
Funny how you’d speak of forever
Only to wind up restless and bored
Can sweethearts so suddenly strangers
Recapture in a moment of fire-

Well it’s the same me
Still the same you
The same two children deep down it’s true

So when your heart cries out
In the middle of a sleepless night
And you’re lost and feeling lonely
When scounds count
Count on me, count on me
When your dreams die hard
And you’re stranded out on the boulevard
I’ll be there in a heartbeat
When seconds count
Count on me, count on me

I’m going back in time to how it used to be

[Instrumental]

Now it’s a race with time
Until I change your mind

So when your heart cries out
In the middle of a sleepless night
And you’re lost and feeling lonely
When scounds count
Count on me, count on me
When your dreams die hard
And you’re stranded out on the boulevard
I’ll be there in a heartbeat
When seconds count
Count on me, you can always count on me

Backstreet Love Affair

Girl, is there something in the night
That draws us together
Are these moments worth the fight?
Why must we keep it to ourselves
The secret we hold inside
Let me take you in my arms
With the strength of a love that’s denied
And we’ve always believed in our heart
That the chances we’ve missed
Still exist in the world after dark

Backstreet love affair
Running through the heart of the night
Backstreet love affair
Meet me in the city tonight

There’s a tension I can taste
That speaks for the danger
Let the warnings go to waste
Eyes that reflect a secret fire
That covers the fear inside
In a flash we’re lost from sight
To explore the romance that we hide
And the thrill of the chase plays a part
In the chances we take
We escape to the world after dark

Backstreet love affair
Running through the heart of the night
Backstreet love affair
Meet me in the city tonight

In Good Faith

There’s a place within my heart
Tucked away from all the pain
And deep within this secret side of me
Just the simple truth remains
Words don’t come easy
Feelings I hide even from myself
I’m ready to share without hesitation
I’ve been saving this moment
For someone who’s saving this moment too
Tell me it’s you

[Chorus]
I’ll give you everything that I’ve got
Say you’ll never turn and run
Cause each and every beat of my heart
Tells me you’re the only one
I’ve cast aside, this foolish pride
I know I can keep you satisfied
I’ll prove it tonight in so many ways
That’s a promise from the heart
In good faith

In the roles that we have chosen
Behind the parts we sometimes play
Lies the passage to the real me
With no illusions in the way
Words don’t come easy
But I’ll get the feeling across somehow
Let it be now…

[Chorus]

Behind these eyes tonight
The truth comes shining
A fire that is rarely seen
It burns for you
I’ve never needed anyone this way
Never find the right words to say
Until today

[Chorus]

Can’t Let You Go

Two eyes that haunt me
When I turn out the light
Two lips that taunt me
From the darkness each night
I try and hide my heart
To keep my distance in the dark
What makes me fall apart
And call out your name
Just when I’m certain
That you’re out of my mind
This feeling grips me
So hard to define
This yearning inside
Just can’t deny it

My heart’s been branded
I can’t let you go
Don’t understand it
Just can’t tell you no
Don’t leave me stranded
Cause I just can’t let you go

It’s such a fine line
I walk on the wire
Your hearts a magnet pulling me to the fire
Girls like you are hard to shake
Like habits hard as hell to break
It might be my mistake
But I need you tonight
You must have something
To have held me so long
I’m not accustomed
To a feeling so strong
Don’t tell me it’s wrong
-just can’t deny it

My heart’s been branded
I can’t let you go
Don’t understand it
Just can’t tell you no
Don’t leave me stranded
Cause I just can’t let you go
