1. "Just Wanna Hold"
(M. Jones / I. Hunter / M. Phillips)

I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you
(I said) I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you

Permission to speak
The time we have is running out
There's a fire in my heart
And I don't wanna put it out

Because I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you
I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you, all night long

My resistance is weak
There ain't a day that goes around
You're making me crazy
You pick me up and you pull me down

I said I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you, in my arms
I said I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you, all night long

I've been wishing on
Holding you so long
Every day of the week
I've been losing sleep
What's the matter with you
Ain't I good enough to
Hold you when I wanna?
Hold you when I want to?

I said, please baby please, ah-ooh
Rock me in your lovin' arms
Won't you give me one chance?
I don't know what I'd do without you

I said I just wanna hold, oh-oh oh
I just wanna hold you
I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you, hold you, hold you

I said I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you, in my arms
I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you, (hold you, hold you) all night long

I just wanna hold, yeah
I just wanna hold you, hold you, hold you
I said I just wanna hold
I just wanna hold you, (yeah-eah-eah-eah aah-aah) hold you, hold you

I just wanna hold, yeah-eah-eah-eah aah-aah
I just wanna hold you, all night long

2. "Save Me Tonight"
(M. Jones / D. Warren / J. Brooks)

Save me tonight, oh, save me tonight

In my room, the sunlight used to shine for me
I'd see you there, when I'd wake up each morning
Now in my lonely room, it feels like time is standing still for me
Ever since you left, without a word of warning

Now you've disappeared, and I'm stumbling through the years
And I can't stop these tears from tumbling down

Babe, save me tonight, save me from another lonely night without you
Don't let me face the cold morning light, save me tonight

What can I do? Is there a way to change your mind?
Is there a word? A word that I can use to, get you, back again
'Cause Darlin', it's no good without you here
I wish that you could see, how much I need you, ooh-ooh ooh

I need you here, here in my arms 'cos you're still here in my heart
Girl, you gotta stop these tears from tumbling down, down, down, down

Babe, save me tonight, save me from another lonely night without you
Don't let me face the cold morning light, save me tonight, yeah

Yeah, now you've disappeared, and I'm stumbling through the years
Baby I can't stop these tears, from tumbling down, down, down, down, down

Save me tonight, save me from another lonely night without you
Don't let me face the cold morning light, save me tonight, baby

I can't sleep, 'cos all I do is think about you
You're the one I need in my life

Save me tonight, save me tonight, save me tonight
Don't let me face the cold morning light, save me tonight, save me

Save me tonight, save me tonight

3. "That's The Way My Love Is"
(M. Jones)

There are the things I cannot say to you
That's the way my love is
But in my heart you'll always stay with me
That's the way my love is

I count the days as time goes by
I count each single minute
I feel afraid, I wonder why, my love
Now it's time to admit it

There are the times, when the words don't come
And I leave you stranded
You may think that I'm on the run
You don't understand it, but believe me now

There are the things I cannot say to you
That's the way my love is
But in my heart you'll always stay with me
That's the way my love is

That's the way it is
That's the way it is

The churching and the burning and the little white lies
Can't you see I'm still learning babe?
See the pain and the tears in my eyes
Inside my heart's still yearning for you, but believe me

There are the things I dare not say to you
'Cos that's the way my love is
But in my heart you'll always stay with me
That's the way my love is

That's the way my love is, that's the way it is
That's the way my love is, that's the way it is

There are the things I dare not say to you
That's the way my love is

That's the way my love is, that's the way it is
That's the way my love is, that's the way it is

You see it's deep inside my heart

4. "The Wrong Side Of The Law"
(M. Jones)

It's lonely being here
On the wrong side of the law
What am I doing here?
I'm on the wrong side of the law

You see, I don't know how it started
I don't recall a thing
I could not understand it
But now it's sinking in

'Cos it's so cold and lonely here
On the wrong side of the law

Here I stand accused
And my future's looking grim
I could win or I could lose
But I never will give in

It's true I should know better
I may have pushed my luck too far
But now between these four walls
Behind these prison bars

I'm paying for my sins
On the wrong side of the law

I said, hey, hey, you
This could happen to you too
Take just one step across the line
And watch your darkest dreams come true

See there is no heaven
There really is no hell
It's just a sad and lonely place
Where the fallen angels dwell

It's so much better on the right side
Than on the wrong side of the law

Youth, you better know better

It's so cold and lonely
On the wrong side of the law

It's so cold and lonely
On the wrong side of the law

It's so cold and lonely
On the wrong side of the law

On the wrong side of the law
Just between me and you

It could be so much better
On the right side of the law

My heart is burnin' for you

6. "Everything That Comes Around"
(M. Jones / J. Brooks)

Good bye is a dangerous game to play
It breaks your heart and tears your life away
You say it's over and that's the end
With no last kiss, and no kind words like friends

But I'm gonna wait my time
I will stand in line
And it will work out fine
And our love will grow
Because I know
Baby yes I know

Everything that comes around, goes around
And everything that goes around, comes around someday
Everything that comes around, goes around
And everything that goes around, comes around someday

D'you think about me now and then?
And wonder were you wrong and what might went bad?
And seasons come and seasons go
And what goes up comes down, and baby soon you'll know

I'm gonna wait my time
I will stand in line
And it will turn out fine
And our love will grow
Because I know
Baby yes I know

Everything that comes around, goes around
Everything that goes around, comes around someday
Everything that comes around, goes around
Everything that goes around, comes around someday

So you can go and leave me now
You see it don't make any difference
Go on and leave me now
'Cos you'll be back sometime in my life
There may be some other ones
And you might think some better ones

But if I wait my time
If I stand in line
It will turn out fine
And our love will grow
Because I know
Baby yes I know

Everything that comes around, goes around
And everything that goes around, comes around someday
Everything that comes around, goes around
Everything that goes around, comes around someday

Everything that comes around, (everything) goes around (I'm gonna be here babe)
Everything that goes around, comes around someday
Everything that comes around, goes around
Everything that goes around, comes around someday

So let it turn around

Everything that comes around, everything, goes around
Everything that goes around, (everything) comes around (someday) someday
Everything that comes around, goes around, oh-oh-aaah
Everything that goes around, comes around someday, yeah

7. "You Are My Friend"
(M. Jones)

I'm calling you today
Never knew how much I meant to you
Till you helped me find my way
You picked me up and pulled me through

See you never can tell
Just how much you need someone
And then all your systems fail
And overnight you're on the run, you're on the run

You are my friend, you know me so well
No one knows better
You've seen me high, you've seen me in hell
And I won't forget you now

I've been turning a blind eye
I've even turned my back on you
See I get carried away sometimes
And I may not be the man you knew, one time

And I've been drowning in this place
No one there to pull me out
But now the tide has turned
And some things I can do without, I'll learn to do without

You see, you are my friend, you know me so well
No one knows better
You've seen me high, you've seen me in hell
And I won't forget you now

You are my friend, and time will soon tell
Things could get better
And even when, they don't go so well
I'll never let you down

It's too soon to tell
It's gonna take more than one look
I'm a man locked in a cell
I need someone to get me off the hook, and you can get me out

And there might come a day
I could grow accustomed to you
Yeah, there just might be a way
I could put my trust in you, put my trust in you babe

You are my friend, you know me so well
No one knows better
You've seen me high, you've seen me in hell
And I won't forget you now

You are my friend, and time will soon tell
Things could get better
(And even when) and even when, and when they don't go so well
I'll never let you down

You are my friend, you know me so well
No one knows better
You've seen me high, you've seen me in hell
I'll never let you down

I'll never let you down
I'll never let you down
I'll never let you down

8. "Danielle"
(M. Jones / J. Brooks)

Don't go and break my heart, Danielle
How could you tear the soul, right out of me?
After I treated you, so well
Don't go and break my heart, Danielle

You and me, and one another
I thought that we were doing well
Two unsophisticated lovers
I thought our love would never fail

Just an ordinary guy
I'm working hard and getting by, without you
'Cos now there's something different
You're not the girl I knew
And you're so cold and distant
Baby what's come over you?

Don't go and break my heart, Danielle
How could you tear the soul, right out of me?
After I treated you, so well
(And don't break my heart) don't go and break my heart, Danielle

I could talk and you would listen
Just one look and you were mine
You'd abide by my decisions
And then you'd read between the lines

Just an ordinary guy
I'm working hard and getting by, without you
Nw there's something different
You're not the girl I knew
And you're so cold and distant
Baby what's come over you?

Don't go and break my heart, Danielle
How could you tear the soul, right out of me?
After I treated you, so well
Don't break my heart, (don't go and break my heart) don't break my heart, Danielle

Don't go and break my heart, Danielle
(How could you tear the soul) how could you tear the soul
(The soul right out of me?) right out of me
(After I treated you) after I treated you, (I treated you so well) so well
Don't break my heart, (don't go and break my heart) don't break my heart, Danielle

Don't go and break my heart, Danielle
Can't you see? How could you tear the soul
(Tear the soul, the soul right out of me?) right out of me
(After I treated you) after I treated you, and I treated you, so well
Don't break my heart, (don't go and break my heart) don't break my heart, Danielle

9. "Write Tonight"
(M. Jones)

Write tonight, tell me I'm the one you're missing
Write tonight, show me you still care about me

I'm sitting in, my hotel room
All alone, and out of tune
In this place, so far away
All I do, is count the days

Hoping I, can come home soon
Oh my love, I do need you
Just a line, a word or two
Is all I need from you

So baby, write tonight, tell me I'm the one you're missing
Write tonight, show me you still care about me
Write tonight, put yourself in my position
Write tonight, tell me you can't live without me, I miss you baby

Acting out, each lonely day
Is the hardest part to play
Girl this road's such a lonely place
It's full of unfamiliar faces

I need your love, to see me through
Need your strength, need all of you
Just a line, a word or two
Is all I need from you

So baby, write tonight, tell me I'm the one you're missing
Write tonight, show me you still care about me
Write tonight, put yourself in my position
Write tonight, tell me you can't live without me

Write tonight, tell me I'm the one you're missing
Write tonight, show me you still care about me
Write tonight, put yourself in my position
Write tonight, tell me you can't live without me

Write tonight, write your heart out in a letter
Write tonight, yeah, just tell me the way that you feel
Make it real, it only could get better
Write tonight, 'cos baby I can't live without you

Write tonight
Write tonight
Write tonight

10. "Johnny" (part 1)
(M. Jones)

Johnny, you don't know how much, you meant to me
You were my hero, everything I, wanted to be

It hurts me, to see you begging, down on your knees
Johnny now it's my turn, this time you can, depend on me

They called you, to fight a war in, some far off land
Overnight they taught you, how to use that, gun in your hand

You came back a changed man, haunted by the, fear and the pain, inside
Johnny just lean on me now, Johnny, Johnny now it's me and I'm on your side
