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 © Lisa Redford

Lot of Love 03:48
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... © Lisa Redford

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...

Red Eyes 03:43
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 © Lisa Redford

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... © Lisa Redford

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 © Lisa Redford

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 © Lisa Redford

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 © Lisa Redford
