Track Name: If I Hold You
It's been a beautiful day, and the light is fading fast
just for tonight girl, would you stay, it's all I ask
we could wake up in the morning, as the dawn breaks
I couldn't think of a better way, to start the day
you in my arms, what d'ya say

CHORUS
If I hold you, would you, hold me too
If you could, I would, I would take care of you
We could leave all our troubles, far behind
figure it all out, If I hold you and you hold me too

sometimes it's hard to keep all the pieces together
sometimes they can break in two
if you find yourself thinking that you don't know what to do
when the light is fading into blue
just call on me baby I'll be there for you

CHORUS

would you stay with me tonight until the dawn breaks
forget about all our troubles and all of our mistakes
together we can start a brand new day
I'll hold you, and you could hold me too

If I hold you would you hold me too
If I need you would you need me too
If I love ya!, If I love ya! would you love me too
If I hold you, would you hold, me, too
Track Name: Just A Man
I'm, just a man
who's trying the best he can
to give, you love
I hope it'll be enough

you're, just a girl
girl you make my world
and I'll do all I can
to keep you here holding my hand

You, and me
we can take on this world, wait and see
and cupid is starting to see
he ain't got nothing, on you and me

cause you to me
you're my remedy
and I'll say to you
those three little words, that are long overdue

Bridge

I'm, just a man
who's trying the best he can
Track Name: For Your Love
It seems like lately
it's been driving me crazy
all this talking makes me feel I should be walking
I thought I could do this
but it's a hit or miss
It feels like this love is a mighty risk

I've been looking for excuses,
bit it's no use this,
aggravating complicating, all this miss communicating

Baby, I'll give it to ya straight this time
I'm gonna lay my heart on the line,
for your love, oh, oh oh, oh
Baby, I'll give it to ya straight this time
I'd break this heart of mine,
for your love

For your love, for you love, for your love
For your love, for you love, for your love

We've been living on the breadline
for too long, we've gotta find a sign
that'll take us back, god take us back, to a better kind
Don't know if I'm ready
to take the risk
I kid myself I'm a stronger man
It ain't something I want to admit

I've been looking for excuses,
but it's no use this,
aggravating complicating, all this miss communicating

Baby, I'll give it to ya straight this time
I'm gonna lay my heart on the line,
for your love, oh, oh oh, oh
Baby, I'll give it to ya straight this time
I'd break this heart of mine,
for your love

For your love, for you love, for your love
For your love, for you love, for your love

so if I ask ya
What do I have to give
how can I build this bridge
between you and me
cause I've been looking
over the edge for some time
please give me just a single sign
that I can read

Stop looking for excuses,
I'm telling you it's no use this,
aggravating complicating, all this miss communicating

Baby, I'll give it to ya straight this time
I'm gonna lay my heart on the line,
for your love, oh, oh oh, oh
Baby, I'll give it to ya straight this time
I'd break this heart of mine,
for your love

Baby, I'll give it to ya straight this time
I'm gonna lay my heart on the line,
for your love, oh, oh oh, oh
Baby, I'll give it to ya straight this time
I'd break this heart of mine,
for your love

For your love, for you love, for your love
For your love, for you love, for your love
Track Name: Never gonna let you go
I don't know what it is
that's making me feel like this
it's taken me a while
but I've figured it out
you take me to another world
making my mind overload
my heart it's overdosed
you take me to another side
where our two worlds collide
when I stand by your side

CHORUS
cause you've stole my heart
and I can't live without you
yeh you've stole my heart
and I can't be without you
I can't breath without you
you're the air i need
and I can't be without you
you're everything to me

I won't let anything
take away what's in my head and heart
I won't let anything
ever tears us apart
lets go to another world
let our minds overload
our hearts will overdose
let's go to the other side
let our hearts collide
when you stand by my side

CHORUS

BRIDGE

I'm never gonna let you go
I'm never gonna let you go
I'm never gonna let you go
I'm never gonna let you go
I'm never gonna let you go
I'm never gonna let you go
I'm never gonna let you go
I'm never gonna let you go

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Track Name: Tell me you need somebody
staring into my cup of cold coffee
I can see your face again
takes me back to where we came from
back in our loving arms again

CHORUS
tell me you need somebody
tell me you need somebody
Oh tell me you need somebody
and I could be somebody
for you for you

I can smell your sweet perfume again
just like it was yesterday
takes me back to where we came from
back in our loving arms again

CHORUS
tell me you need somebody
tell me you need somebody
Oh tell me you need somebody
and I could be somebody
for you for you

Bridge

staring into my cup of cold coffee
I can see your face again
it takes me back to where we came from
back in our loving arms again

CHORUS
tell me you need somebody
tell me you need somebody
Oh tell me you need somebody
and I could be somebody
for you for you
for you
for you
