1. "White Lie"
(L. Gramm / M. Jones)

One little white lie
One white lie, surrounds us
One white lie, won't stop the love
That I feel around us

Darling, do you think about me?
What I feel for you, don't you ever doubt me?

You see the lock on the door
Of this heart, but you hold the key
I need the trust you can give
Is there something that you need from me?

One little white lie
One white lie surronds us
One white lie won't stop the love
That I feel around us

Secrets, and the way we keep them
Between you and me, promise we'll never need them

I can see something so true
No one else, could ever see
And I'll never chance losing you
I believe my heart, I hear what's telling me

One little white lie
One white lie, surronds us
One white lie, won't stop the love
That I feel around us

One little white lie
One white lie, tears us apart
One white lie, won't stop the love
That's waiting in this heart
That's waiting in this heart

Temptation leave us alone
'Cause I know you're always there
But white lies can weigh like stone
And in this world, I hear them everywhere

One little white lie, oh-oooh yeah
One white lie, surronds us
One white lie, won't stop the love
That I feel around us

One little white lie, one lie
One white lie, tears us apart
One white lie, won't stop the love
That's waiting in this heart
That's waiting in this heart

One lie, (one lie)
(One little white lie) one white lie
(One white lie) one little white lie

2. "Rain"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm / B. Turgon)

Brother, always reaching far too high
But I can see the tragic side
And it ain't easy

Hey brother ah-aaah, you won't let anybody help
Why do you sacrifice yourself?
You can't go on this way

Tell me why, oh-oooh why?
Why don't you open up your heart?
Let the light, from inside
Show us who you are

And when it looks like rain
And when the dark clouds fill your sky
There ain't no good reason why
You've gotta feel the pain

Even when it looks like rain
Just hold your head up high
I know the sun's gonna shine
Even when it looks like rain

Hey sister, another story must be told
Just count the blessings you still hold
What's done is done

Hey sister, you can find the one you need
Don't have to live the life you lead
Don't be the lonely one

Tell me why, oh-oooh why?
Why don't you open up your heart?
Let the light, from inside
Show us who you are

And when it looks like rain
And when the dark clouds fill your sky
There ain't no good reason why
You've gotta feel the pain

Even when it looks like rain, (rain)
Just hold your head up high
I know the sun's gonna shine
Oooh-oooh, oooh-oooh

Don't get down and don't get washed away, oooh oooh-oooh oooh
Just remind yourself, every day
That into each life, a little rain must fall
So let it rain, rain, (rain), oooh-oooh-oooh oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh

Even when it looks like rain, (rain)
Just hold your head up high
I know the sun's gonna shine
Even when it looks like rain

(Rain) (rain) rain

When it looks like rain

3. "Until The End Of Time"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm / B. Turgon)

When I was young, and the world belonged to me
I thought that love, meant pain and jealousy
It was a cross on my shoulder
Oh Lord, now I feel so much older

Oooh-oooh oooh-oooh oooh-oooh
Oooh-oooh oooh-oooh oooh-oooh-oooh

Now, time had a way, of making me see
My lonely life, has taken it's toll on me
Now I feel the emptiness
And I don't want to live like this

Now I've heard stories, I've heard songs
Telling me believe my heart won't wait too long
But words they don't ring true
Until there was you

Never will I lose this heart's desire
Ever will I feed our love's fire
Only when I know that you'll be mine
Until the end of time

How do I trust what I'm beginning to feel?
How deep my soul? How much can I reveal?
I'm lost in love's mystery
I'm caught between time, and eternity

Now there's a door that opens wide
Slowly I will find my way and reach inside
But I couldn't make it through
Until there was you

Never will I lose this heart's desire
Ever will I feed our love's fire
Only when I know that you'll be mine
And only when I see the light of love shine

Until the end of time

Never will I lose this heart's desire
Ever will I feed our love's fire
Only when I know that you'll be mine
And only when I see the light of love shine

Never will I lose this heart's desire
Ever will I feed our love's fire
And when I see the light of love shine
In your eyes, when they meet mine

Only then I'll know it's you and I
Until the end of time

4. "All I Need To Know"
(L. Gramm / M. Jones)

So I walk another mile down this crooked road
Clouds rolling in, Lord it's getting cold
Feeling fine, feeling lost, feeling blue tonight
But my only friend is Mr. Moonlight

Then I see you girl lost in your book of poems
You're in another world, I should leave you alone
My heart races on, I try and hold it back
But like a runaway train, I'm about to jump the tracks

Now you say you need a friend
I swear to you, if that's what you need
That's what I'll be

But I hope this never ends
I feel there's something more the way
You look at me

And that's all I need to know, oooh-oooh-ooooooh
I won't question why, don't need a reason
We can take our time, we can take it real slow
When I see it in your eyes
That's all I need to know

Now we're talking 'bout angels that have lost their wings
This melancholy world, and the nature of things
But them there's only silence, when your eyes meet mine
Sends a shiver to my soul, runs deeper than time

Reciting from your black book, you were like some wounded bird
I tried to catch your heart, as it fell between your words
You tore out one page, and let it blow away
Then you disappeared into your world, it's a place I just can't stay

You say you need a friend
I swear to you if that's what you need
That's what I'll be

But I hope this never ends
I feel there's something more the way
You look at me

And that's all I need to know, oooh-oooh-ooooooh
I won't question why, don't need a reason
We can take our time, we can take it real slow
When I see it in your eyes
That's all I need to know

All I need to know, oooh-oooh-ooooooh
I won't question why, don't need a reason
We can take our time, we can take it real slow
But it's right here in my heart
Where it's all I need to know

That's all I need to know, oooh-oooh-ooooooh
I won't question why, don't need a reason
We can take our time, we can take it real slow
When I see it in your eyes
That's all I need to know

All I need to know, oooh-oooh-ooooooh
I won't question why, don't need a reason
We can take our time, we can take it real slow
But it's right here in my heart
Where it's all I need to know

That's all I need to know

That's all I need to know

That's all I need to know

All I need to know

5. "Running The Risk"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm / J. Jacobs)

Seeing you
Watching you, watching me
I hold back my emotions
I keep them veiled, in secrecy

I can't let go, of this thing we've started
Wasn't looking for love
No conspiracy of broken hearted
I don't know, how far to go
Until I'm gone, gone, gone

I couldn't see the danger
It was just a little taste of temptation
I could not read the silence
That was written on your face
But here comes that feeling again

And there's nothing more I can do, oooh-oooh
I keep running the risk of losing you
There's nothing more I can say, oooh-oooh
I'm still running the risk of you walking away

I'm lost, drowning in a sea of emotion
I've got one simple need
I need you to feel my devotion
I don't know, how far to go
Until I'm gone, yeah gone

It's a complicated picture
I'm all tangled up, in temptation
I couldn't read the silence
That was written on your face
But here comes that feeling again

And there's nothing more I can do, oooh-oooh
I keep running the risk of losing you
There's nothing more I can say, oooh-oooh
I'm still running the risk of you walking away

I'm running the risk of losing you (oooh-oooh)
I'm walking this tightrope, you're my only hope
There's nothing more I can do (oooh-oooh)
I keep running the risk of losing you, losing you

Now there's nothing more I can do
I keep running the risk of losing you
There's nothing more I can say
I'm still running the risk of you walking away

I'm running the risk of losing you (oooh-oooh)
I'm walking this tightrope, darling, my only hope
There's nothing more I can do (oooh-oooh)
I keep running the risk of losing you

I'm running the risk of losing you
I'm telling you honey, this heart of mine cannot run the risk, of losing you again
I'll do everything, one man can do
I'm still running the risk of losing you

6. "Real World"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm)

Days, times we will remember
When innocence was lost
We let our hearts move on

So many dreams, we thought would last forever
Today it doesn't matter
All those dreams are gone

They are gone, oooh-oooh-ooooooh

Tell me how it feels again
Oh, show me that it's real and then

I'll walk away, from my own reflection
The stranger that I knew
The stranger that was you

And now I face a cold return to sender
A truce but no surrender
A voice that won't ring true

Where are you? Oooh-oooh-ooooooh

I reach over the edge
And throw a penny in the wishing well
It's so deep
That I can tell

That in the real world
There's fewer stars in the sky
And in the real world
You can hear the children cry at night
This is the real world

There is no time, for a life of solitude
Only hunger and survival
In the world we're born into

We're alone, oooh-oooh-ooooooh

And it brings me to my knees
Our father lay me down to sleep
Father please
Pray the lord my soul to keep

Keep us in the real world
Keep us in the real world

Don't have to tell you, in the real world
They'll damn you if you try
In the real world
Let it begin with you and I

Aaah-aaah-aaaaaah

This is the real world
There's fewer stars in the sky
This is the real world
You can hear the children cry at night
Now in the real world
They'll damn you if you try
And in the real world
Let it begin with you and I
Living in the real world
Yeah, living in the real world

Ooooooh oooh-oooh oooh-oooh ooooooh-oooh-ooooooh
Ooooooh ooooooh-oooh ooooooh-ooooooh
Ooooh-oooh ooooooh-oooh
Ooooh-oooh ooooooh-oooh

7. "Big Dog"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm / J. Jacobs / B. Turgon / M. Schulman / S. Gilman)

Big dog, scratching at the door
With this big dog, you won't want to round, no more
My big dog, guiri, bites, hah-huh-grrrrrr

Big dog, growling, grrrrrr
Bad dog, babe, you better keep away
Guiri, guiri, guiri, hah-huh-grrrrrr

This big dog bites, hah

Grrrrrrrrr, grrrrrrrrr

8. "Hole In My Soul"
(L. Gramm / M. Jones)

I can feel these four walls around me
I can feel them closing in on me
But I know there's someone out there ready and waiting
For the chance to set me free

Now, I don't want nothing
Ain't looking for no one
You walk into my life

Well I ain't no hopeless romantic
I've gotta listen to my cautious heart
I've been dealing with my illusions of love
I built it up, and then I tear it apart

And I feel this rising suspicion
That my heart will ever rule my mind
Well I'm guilty of love, by my own admission
Come on girl, let me do my time

Hey, when I call you
I need to fill the hole in my soul
(Hey) hey, when I fall through
I need to fill the hole, in my soul

The hole

Don't need no sisters of mercy
They set me off like a loaded gun
Ain't nothing in this world possessing me
Honey you're, the only one

Can't live in this empty sadness
It's more than we can endure
Well wise men say that love is the madness
Come on girl, I say love is the cure

Hey, when I call you
I need to fill the hole in my soul
(Hey) hey, when I fall through
I need to fill the hole in my soul
Hey, without you
I will fall through the hole in my soul

Hey, when I call you
(I need to fill the hole in my soul) I need to fill the hole in my soul, my soul
(Hey) hey, when I fall through
I need to fill the hole in my soul
(Hey) hey, without you
I will fall through the hole in my soul

(Hey) hey, I need you
I need you to fill the hole in my soul

Hey, I want you to fill the hole in my soul

Hey, hey, hey, I need to fill the hole in my soul

The hole, in my, in my soul
The hole, in my soul

Hey, hey, I want to fill the hole in my soul
The hole, in my soul

9. "I Keep Hoping"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm / J. Jacobs)

As I gather my thoughts, with the pieces of my heart
Tell me, how long is forever?
I'm not afraid, and I won't be torn apart
We've had our time together

Now I make my new beginnings
I'll start again at any cost
I've learned a lot from losing you
But I've got nothing if I'm lost

And I keep hoping and I still believe in love
If I wait long enough, I know I'll be strong enough
Yeah, I keep hoping, I believe in faith and trust
I'm gonna find a way, there are better days still ahead of us
(Oooooooh) I keep hoping

Now this candle burns low, it won't last through the night
But I've found peace, I know it's all right
I try to understand, what's been missing in my life
Between the darkness and the daylight

No I'm not expecting miracles
I've got my doubts like any other one
I've learned a lot from losing you
But I've got nothing if I'm lost

And I keep hoping, I still believe in love
If I wait long enough, I know I'll be strong enough
And I keep hoping, (I believe in faith and trust) I believe in faith and trust
There'll be better days, better days, through all our way now, still ahead of us, aaah-aaah
(I keep hoping) I keep hoping, I keep hoping
I keep hoping and praying baby, oooh-oooh-oooh-ooooooh-oooh-oooh
And I still believe in love

I keep hoping, I keep hoping baby, oooh-ooooooh
I'm gonna find a way
(I keep hoping) I keep hoping baby
There are better days, oh, better days
I keep hoping, hoping and praying
And I still believe in love
(I keep hoping) I keep hoping
I keep hoping
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeaaaaah, yeah-eah-eah
(I keep hoping) I keep hoping
Ooo-ooooooh

10. "Under The Gun"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm)

Good girl on a bad day
She needs love in a bad way
Hmmm, victim in a red dress
She won't give no more
And don't take no less

Walking up the west side
She bought a ticket for the long ride
Well she's ripe for the take
But it's no show, late night
Talkin' 'bout no go, red light

When she put on the show
How far will she go?
She says yes when she means no

Under the gun
You can't walk away, you can't run
Hmmm-hmmm, under the gun, yeah
(Yeah-yeah) under the gun

She's got wicked intentions
She'll use less than conventional ways
She'll do things I can't mention
But there are some games
That she just won't play

Walking on the wild side, wild side
She bought a ticket for the long ride, (the wild side)
Yeah she's mine for the take
But it's no show, late night
Talkin' 'bout no go, red light

When she put on the show
How far will she go?
She says yes when she means no

Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
You can't walk away, you can't run
Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
(Yeah-yeah) under the gun

Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
Now, you can't walk away, you can't run
Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
Under the gun

When she put on the show
How far will she go?
She says yes when she means no

Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
You can't walk away, you can't run
Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
(Yeah-yeah) under the gun

Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
You can't walk away, you can't run
Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
Under the gun

Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
Now, you can't walk away, you can't run
Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
Under the gun

Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
You can't walk away
Under the gun, (oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh)
Walk away
Under the gun

11. "Hand On My Heart"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm / B. Turgon)

Rescue me
I can't dream this dream any more, my dream oh my dream
Set me free
I keep holding on
But I don't know what for

All I know
Is that I've breathed your name
For what feels like a lifetime
I can't let go
You're a part of me

And I die each time
I lose a little more of you
And I look for a sign
To give me hope
We'll find a love we once knew

And all I know
Is when we're face to face
When there's no one between us
With one last embrace
We'll let time heal the pain

Keep your hand on my heart, don't let go
I can't see, you're too close to me
Don't leave me in the dark
keep your hand on my heart
Oh please, only you, lonely me

It's not enough, to simply talk about love
As if it were in our control
Now as I struggle with the past
I can't think about the future
When it's so hard to let go

And all I know
Is I still whisper your name
Girl it won't be the last time
As our lives go separate ways
We'll let time heal the pain

Keep your hand on my heart, don't let go
I can't see, you're too close to me
Don't leave me in dark
Keep your hand on my heart
Oh please, only you, lonely me

Keep your hand on my heart, don't let go
I can't see, you're too close to me
Don't leave me in dark
Keep your hand on my heart
Oh please

Keep your hand on my heart, don't let go
I can't see, you're too close to me
Don't leave me in dark
Keep your hand on my heart
Oh please, only you, lonely me

Only you, lonely me

12. "Crash And Burn"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm)

I always thought we were in control
But our lives could never be what they were before
There's a rhythm in our love, only you and I can feel it
Outsiders in a world where passion is a crime, so we conceal it

Now this hard road leaves a bitter taste, at the bottom of my cup
But if I got you, no way I'll ever give up
Tonight, tomorrow, don't know how far we'll get
With the blue moonlight, beyond another deep sunset

I'll be ready when there's nowhere to run
Yeah, I've been waiting for a heartache to come

Crash and burn, deep inside your heart
Crash and burn, oh yeah
Crash and burn
Love moves too fast, I lose control, I'll never learn
Crash and burn

I believe there's a way for us
There'll come a time, there'll come a day for us
Unleash this heart and let the spirit free
It's the emotional part, it's a deep and dangerous thing

But I'll be ready when there's nowhere to run, uuuh-uuuh uuuh
See I've been waiting for a heartache to come

Crash and burn, deep inside your heart
Crash and burn, do you feel it?
Crash and burn
Love moves too fast, I lose control, I'll never learn
Crash and burn

Now I'm ready and there's no where to run
I'm waiting, waiting for a heartache to come

Crash and burn, deep inside your heart
Crash and burn, oh yeah
Crash and burn
Love moves too fast, I lose control
Crash and burn, oh yeah

Crash and burn, can you feel it?
Crash and burn
Love's straight ahead, I won't slow down and I won't turn
Crash and burn, oooh-woah-uuuh

Crash and burn, can you feel it?
Crash and burn, oooh-uuuh
Crash and burn
Burn, oooh-oooh oooh-uuuh uuuh
Oooh, oooh, oooh-uuuh
Crash and burn
