ALBUM LYRICS

FACE THAT I ONCE KNEW


Tried to see the face
That I once knew
The two of us so far apart
Sometimes I think that we were through
Thought I knew you
The very first time though I'd lost you
The second time around I'd try to see
The face that I once knew

*The face that I once
The face that I once
The face that I once
The face that I once knew

*Repeat

You used to be my one temptation
And all I wanted was you
Deception seemed to be a game of pain
Should I realize on the very first time
If all of your promises were all just lies?
Trying to see the face that I once knew

*Repeat with ad lib

Rumors could never deceive you
In your mind you think and wonder why
It's burning desire you're talking to
Telling you you're paying the price
For falling, falling in love

*Repeat with ad lib

Watch my face




LOVER FREE


*I set the lover free
But she's still haunting me
I set the lover free
But she's still haunting me

I always knew
That to my love she would be true
But I could never feel that way
So I made her blue
I told her to find someone new
So that I could do the same

*Repeat

I was a fool
I thought that I could live without her
Independent state of mind
But I never knew how lonely
I would feel without her
But never was a friend of mine

*Repeat

I wish that I had never let her go
She tried her best to make me stay
There's no giving back the freedom
That I chose
She found another love
And I can't stand this pain

*Repeat with ad lib to fade




MISHALE


SPOKEN : There's many night
And we're ocean apart
Even though my tears have dried
There's an emptiness I feel in my heart

From the first time that I loved you
I told you from the start
Our love will come together
If we could stand to be apart
I never meant to break you heart
Oh no
The days I been without you
I feel so all alone
I see you in my dreams at night
I feel your touch so strong
I feel your pain and your tears miles away
I surrender my soul to you, dear

*Love you, love you, love you, love you
Mishale, what am I supposed to do?
Mishale, I'll never get over you
Mishale, loving you is heathen
Missing you is hell
And I need you for our love to be strong

No matter where I find myself
You're always in my mind
Photographs that look back at me reminds me
That your love's deep as mine
Coming home to you, baby
Is what I'm living for
Yeah

*Repeat

SPOKEN : My soul and eyes
Reveal the pain as my tears
Fall like rain
The light is fading
I'm gonna do some real serious love

*Repeat with ad lib to fade
Loving you is heathen
Missing you is hell




MY SENSUAL LOVE


SPOKEN : Hey, listen -
You gotta have sensuality
Before you have sexuality
You think you got it?
C'mon and show me
(ad lib)

Love you in the morning, morning (2 times)

I thought I'd keep you guessing
I found some question signs in your mind
I'll change the world just be loving you
Just give me that chance and I'll be there

* Love you in the morning, morning
Love you in the morning 'til the evening comes
With my sensual love
I'll love you in the morning
I'll love you in the morning 'til the evening comes
With my sensual love

I'll be your mystery lover, yeah
I'll be in your bedroom window at night
Creator of myth, I'll lead you in a dance
Songs of love, you've got me in a trance

*Repeat

There's magic when I look in your eyes
A spell that heats up our night
And in my world my love for you will never die

**I'll love you, I'll love you (8 times)

*Repeat with ad lib
**Repeat
*Repeat with ad lib to fade

SPOKEN : You see what I mean?




TRYIN' TO TELL YA


Tryin' to tell ya
Tryin' to tell ya, oh baby
Tryin' to tell ya
Tryin' to tell ya, oh baby

If I had my way
Smoke would be fire
'Cause every word that
You say speaks of desire
I would know how you feel
And you would know better
With a kiss we would seal
Our comin' together

Many days have passed thinkin' about you
My nights alone much too cold
All that I have I will give
All that I can ask is just to -

*Let me dream about you
Let me dream about you
Let me dream about you
Tryin' to tell ya I'm in love with you
Tryin' to tell ya I'm in love with you

If you ask I will come to your rescue
Never fear this thing again
This I can promise you love
You and I will make it back
My vision will guide you
What you give you'll get it back
As my love grows inside you

Don't you want to kiss me again?
I can give you, I'll let you use it at any time
Just show me in to your heart
To your soul
To the world that you know

*Repeat

SPOKEN : You're off to a good start
It's time, time to experience
A change for the better
I've tried for a long time
When she says
Tenderness to give tenderness

*Repeat with ad lib to fade




CRYIN' IN THE RAIN


Every time I look into your deep brown eyes
I just wanna love and hold you tight
Girl, I never understand the reason why
I always wanna touch you in the early morn&'
As the night turns into day
If I knew I was sleepin' with her
Then to me I'd say -

*Don't leave me cryin' in the rain
Please don't leave me so insane
Don't leave me cryin' in the rain

*Repeat

In my imagination is this whole story reads
I will have a home within your heart
Where everything is warm
And you could be my girl
I'm thinkin' about that journey
'Cause my tears are now above my head
I'll let you in and you left me on that rainy day

*Repeat (2 times)

Maybe it's true that I'm made to be a fool
You used me and abused me and threw me away
And like the sweetest dove in the night
You're in and out of my life
And I'm falling from your heart
And standin' in the rain

**Tell me why you're runnin' scared
Always wanna run and escape
Then you're right where the rain needs to hit
Then you -

**Repeat

***Don't leave me cryin', baby
Don't leave me cryin', baby
I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
Don't leave me cryin', baby

***Repeat
*Repeat with ad lib to fade




SWEETNESS


There are times when you feel
Lost and lonely
And you need someone to hold on to
You're my river of addiction
And there's no one else
That makes me feel the way that you do

When I take a taste of you
There's nothing sweeter
Like the skins we cruise together
But when you're not around
I start to lose my mind
I need this feeling to last forever
I need you around to ease my soul
And if you're not around
I lose control

*You want me, you got me
Your sweetness is my weakness, yeah
Oh yeah, givin' me love, yeah, givin' me fun
And it's keeping me strong
This givin' you love all the time
Your sweetness is my weakness, yeah

You're my trial
You're my addiction
That keeps me throughout the day
It's the soundtrack of my dreams
And never goes away
I need you forever
With you deep in me
Life is worth living
If your love is waiting for me

In my desperate world
I'm runnin' out of time
Would you take this trigger
Off my heart tonight?

It's the rapture of your wild embrace
That'll keep my sanity in place
*Repeat

So much to do tonight
Your sexy love, your sexy love
If I don't have you every night
I walk the streets as a junkie
Tryin' to find his paradise

Give me one more fix now baby
**Repeat with ad lib to fade




RONNIE DON'T FALL


Ronnie don't fall (3 times)
Ronnie don't fall in love with me

We grew together, I knew you when
We were so inseparable
And everything we did was then
I could feel your tears
At night if you cried
I believed in you and you believed in me
Til' the day we died
As time passes by
I've seen the changes within your mind
When you tell me that you love me

*Ronnie don't fall in love with me
Some things, my friend, were meant to be
I'll be your friend but not your lover
I'll be your father and your brother
Ronnie don't fall in love
Ronnie don't fall in love with me

You have me talking in my sleep
Thinkin' of the things you said,
The way you see me
You have me going crazy in my mind
Dreamin' of many explanations
That I can hardly find

**'Cause I would never hurt you
But there is no easy way
For what I'm about to say

*Repeat

Through this experience
You've opened up my mind
You showed me there's another way of life
But now the time has come for you to realize
I'll respect the choice you made
If you'll respect the choice that's mine

Ronnie don't fall
Ronnie don't fall in love with me

***You have the mind to release the pain
Ronnie don't fall in love

***Repeat
**Repeat
*Repeat
***Repeat
*Repeat to fade




WHY DO YOU LIE


Should have known it was April Fool's
When you said you loved me
Why do you lie? Why do you lie?
Should have known it
When I found the new clothes you got
You told me they were your friends
Oh why do you lie?

All my friends keep telling me give you up
I've tried to be strong
It's been going on so long
I still want to love you
But you've done me wrong

*Why do you lie with tears in your eyes?
When I kissed you there was no salt
But just freshwater that filled your eyes
Why do you lie with tears in your eyes
When I kissed the ground you walked on
I know your truth is just an alibi

Why do you lie?
Why do you lie?

When you told me simply that
The whole world falls around me?
Why do you lie? Why do you lie?
Should have known
When you sprayed on your perfume
That you're saving it for your lover
Why do you lie?

I just can't believe I can love
Still wanna try
I've tried to be strong
But it's been going on so long
I still want your love
But you play me for a fool

*Repeat

Speak to me of circumstance
That you just can't leave
You spit upon my confidence and ask me to believe
What am I here for?
Just to be around you
Until you've had enough?

*Repeat to fade




JUST GIVE ME TIME


With my heart in little pieces
I made my escape
Another bad relation had taken its shape
She almost made off
With this soul of mine
It was close
I was lost but she found me in time

*You can lend me your ear
You can lend me your heart
But can you give me the time
To make a brand new start?

**Just give me time
You should want it that way
If I told the truth tonight
Would you take your love away?
Just give me time
You know it has to be that way
If I told another lie
Will it buy another day?

You gave me the strength
To get back on my feet
Can you give me the time
To believe the love I feel?
If I asked any more than the words that I feel
Will I know if it's love?
Will I know who I am?

I don't need a bleeding heart
I just want a helping hand
You can pull me apart
Or you can understand

**Repeat
*Repeat
***Repeat with ad lib to fade




SAVE ME NOW


Here I am in a place that I have never been
Out of love
And afraid that you won't let me in
You can't tell me
As I started to fear
That my senses have
Left me to die

*Where is my strength
When I need it the most?
Tell me what have you done with my mind?

**Oh save me now
From the depth of my infatuation
I could run in the sea of love in isolation
I'll take you down
If you just save me now

Of all the time that I gave away
I'll give to you
Of all the love that I never made
I'll make to you
Nothing would be more delighted to me
Than to give you a taste
Of the love that I hide
In my condition I totally realized
Tell me what have you done with my pride?

**Repeat with ad lib
*Repeat
**Repeat with ad lib to fade
