Track Name: The Boy Who… Live Studio Version
He ain’t nobody special
He ain’t noone you’d know
He ain’t even around here now
Playing his one man show
But I just can’t forget him
No matter how hard I try
They say that time is a healer but
It passes slowly by
Passes slowly by

He’s just the boy who broke my heart
Just the one who tore it apart
Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life
He’s the just the boy I see at night
When I lay down and close my eyes
Just the boy who broke my
Boy who broke my heart

Every night is the same dream
And I can still see his face
Lost in the eyes that were searching mine
A love I can’t replace
It’s a love I can’t replace

He’s just the boy who broke my heart
Just the one who tore it apart
Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life
He’s the just the boy I see at night
When I lay down and close my eyes
Just the boy who broke my
Boy who broke my heart

Wake up every morning to the sound of his voice oh
And though I’ll never see him again, it’s like I have no choice

He’s just the boy who broke my heart
Just the one who tore it apart
Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life
He’s the just the one I see every night
When I lay down and close my eyes
Just the boy who broke my
Boy who broke my heart
Oh oh oh oh

He ain’t nobody special
He ain’t noone you’d know
He ain’t even around here now
Playing his one man show

Track Name: Lot of Love
You say that we should talk about it
I say there’s nothing more to say
We could talk about it but it just won’t go away, it’s over, it’s over

I know it took a long long time to get to where we are
And though it took a long long time we didn’t get too far
So if you’re looking for a reason, you can see it in my eyes
My life needs direction not compromise
Yeah, my life needs direction not compromise

You say that we should talk about it
I say there’s nothing more to say
We could talk about it but it just won’t go away, it’s over, it’s over

I know it took a long long time to make us see the light
And though it took a long long time for me it wasn’t right
And if you think I’m leaving, you know I’m moving on
So close your eyes and then I will be gone
Just close your eyes and then I will be gone
It’s gonna take a lot of love, a lotta lotta love
It’s gonna take a lot of love, a lotta lotta love
It’s gonna take a lot of love, a lotta lotta love...

Track Name: You Will Know Live Acoustic Version
Like the sweetest dream
When you came to me that night
Ran a thousand miles
Just to see you smiling bright

And when you feel the way I do, you’ll know, you will know

Now I close my eyes
Try to memorise those words
That you said to me
Now a memory that hurts

And when you feel a love so true, you’ll know, you will know

And when love comes around
You find you won’t come down
Cos when your world is torn in two, you’ll know, you will know

Hard to face the day
Now you’re far away from me
Love had robbed me blind
You broke this heart of me I see
And when you lose the love you knew, you’ll know, you will know

You will know...
Track Name: Red Eyes
You turn the lights down low
Try to let me know
What you’ve been thinking
But I see it in your eyes
Comes as no surprise
My heart is sinking
She’s got red eyes with a blue heart

Always trying to impress
Your thoughtlessness, is never ending
She tries to understand
You never take her hand
So stop pretending

She’s got red eyes with a blue heart
You know she’s got
Red eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes
And she’s so blue

She tries to understand
You never take her hand
She’s got red eyes with a blue heart
You know she’s got
Red Eyes, eyes, eyes
And she’s so blue

Track Name: Love You Anyway
Love You Anyway

Caught in a moment
Frozen in time
And I don’t remember
How we said goodbye
And I know you’re leaving
It’s hurting inside
So much unspoken
Feelings I hide

So if you think that there is something here
Let’s not throw it away
There’s just so much I want to say

And even though it’s not the right time
I’m still going out of my mind
And though I know I can’t make you stay
I love you anyway

If I never met you
Would I be the same
There’s just something about you
It won’t go away

So if you think that there is something here
Let’s not throw it away
There’s just so much I need to say

And even though it’s not the right time
I’m still going out of my mind
And though I know I can’t make you stay
I love you anyway

There’s just so much that we could do
Not gonna stop thinking of you
Just let me know

And even though it’s not the right time
I’m still going out of my mind
And though I know I can’t make you stay
I love you anyway...

Track Name: When You Go Live Acoustic Version
When You Go

Never felt the sunshine til you took my hand
Never had such feelings now I understand
You’re chasing your dreams but I’m losing mine
Cos you’re taking flight, into the night, without goodbye

And when you go, you leave me lonely
How will I know, you love me only
It’s funny how, we don’t say what we feel
Til it’s too late, it’s too late

It is all so easy when you’re here with me
All the fears are gone til the time you leave
Getting tired of promises that you can’t keep
Now you’re far away, nothing more to say or do

And when you go, you leave me lonely
How will I know, you love me only
It’s funny how we don’t say what we feel
Til it’s too late, it’s too late

It’s too late, it’s too late
It’s too late, it’s too late

Track Name: Carolina Rain
Carolina Rain

We lay beside the river
We watched the sun go down
You watched the sunset, I wrote in my diary
Imagining the next town
Then tomorrow we’ll be driving
Doesn’t matter where we go
Oh Oh Oh

Never like before, never love you more
Hope we’ll always feel this way
Life is like a dream when you’re here with me
Hope we’ll always feel the same
In the Carolina Rain

Then driving through the thunder
We didn’t think we’d make it
The cafe and the motel, I see them clearly now
And in the waterfall I fell, we laughed so hard
We laughed until we cried
Hope we’ll never lose the feeling
The feeling is so strong
Oh Oh Oh

Never like before never love you more
Hope we’ll always feel this way
Life is like a dream when you’re here with me
Hope we’ll always feel the same
In the Carolina Rain

We won’t ever lose the feeling
The feeling is so strong
Oh Oh Oh

Never like before never love you more
Hope we’ll always feel this way
Life is like a dream when you’re here with me
Hope we’ll always feel the same
In the Carolina Rain

Track Name: Makes Your Heart Sing
Makes Your Heart Sing

Is there someone that you long for
Now that someone isn’t me
Got to try and stop believing
If it wasn’t meant to be

And I’m trying so very hard to be so very strong
Now I’m not the one who makes your heart sing

Is there someone that you’re holding
When the night falls, keeps you warm
Is there something that you’re hiding
Deep inside you, keeps you safe from harm

And I know it’s been so long but time don’t mean a thing
When you’ve lost that one who makes your heart sing

Do you listen to the same shows that we used to on the radio
When you’re driving down the same streets, all the places we used to go

And I hope I’ll be alright
Now that love has gone
Then I’ll find the one who makes me heart sing

And I wish you all the love in the world, for all time
And I’ll miss all of those days more than I did when you were mine

Track Name: Never Was A Yesterday
Never Was a Yesterday

Yeah ok, I will act like we never met
Yeah ok, I will try hard to forget
Yeah ok, we don’t have to talk about it now
Yeah ok, cos I’ll be moving on somehow

Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a smile upon your face
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a heart that had to break
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a price we had to pay
Like there never was
Like there never was
Like there never was a yesterday

Yeah ok, I will act like you never cared
Yeah ok, there were dreams that we never shared
Yeah ok, I just find it hard to let it go
But ok cos I guess that you’ll never know

Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a smile upon your face
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a heart that had to break
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a price we had to pay
Like there never was

Something real, something true
That felt so right
I guess all the time, I’d been living life
Like there never was
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Oh

Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a smile upon your face
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a heart that had to break
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a price we had to pay
Like there never was a yesterday…
