1. WHERE IS MY LOVE

I want a woman I can do things for
Give her the world if she wants it
All things and even more
And anything her little heart desires
There's nothing I wouldn't do
And if she doesn't get quite enough
I'll break down to her knees
Until she screams
Please give me more

Where tell me
Where is my love, tell me
Where
Where is the girl of my dreams
For me
Oh, where is my love

Oh, I'm the kinda man that wants a special girl
To be the only tender in my world
She's the kinda girl that wants a special guy
To love her to the day she dies
Oh honey, the shame about it is
You don't even know I'm out there
Seems like I feel you near
Are you in this room
Will I meet you soon
Oh, please come to me

[Hook x2]

[Spoken:]
You know
They say love is a many splendid thing, baby
So complicated, but so good
But you know we
We can't seem to find each other, can we baby
I mean, I'm looking for you
And you're looking for me too, but
I tell you what
I'm gonna keep searching 'til I find you baby, 'cause
I know you're out there somewhere
I won't give up on you baby
Just please come to me now, darlin'

Please tell me

[Hook x3]

2. ALL THIS LOVE

I had some problems
And no one could seem to solve them
But you found the answer
You told me to take a chance
And learn the way of love, my baby
And all that it had to offer
In time you will see that love won't let you down.

You said that you loved me
Said hurt only came to pass me
It sounded so convincing
That I gave it half a chance
And learned the way of love my baby
There is so much love inside me
And all that I have I give my all to you
And all this love is waiting for you
And all, all my love is waiting for you
All this love is waiting for you
And baby all, baby all this love is waiting for you
Oh, I love how you make me feel this way
My love is getting stronger every day
And after all I went and put myself through
I found that all I really needed was you

As the sun has it's place up in the sky
I love you so dearly
And all the same, there's no need to wonder why
I need you, please hear me

Say you really love me, baby
Say you really love me, darling
For I really love you baby
You know I really love you darling

Say you really love me, baby
Say you really love me, darling
For I really love you baby
Sure enough love you darling

Say, say you love me......

3. LOVE ME IN A SPECIAL WAY


(Verse 1)
You knew you had me
With your sensuos charm
Yet you looked so alarmed
As I walked on by
An awesome wonder
You had to know why
I did not respond
To carry on

(Chorus 2xs)
Love me in a special way
What more can I say
Love me now

(Verse 2)
Love me now
'Cause I'm special
Not the average kind
Who'd accept any line

That sounds good
So reach into your chain of thoughts
Try to find something new
What works so well for you before
For me it just won't do

(Chorus 2xs)

(Bridge)
So reach into your chain of thoughts
Try to find somethin' new
What works so well for you before
For me it just won't do

(Chorus 'til fade)

4. STARLIGHT EXPRESS



When the night is darkest, open up your mind
Dream begins, it's becoming clearer
Listen to the distant, listen and you'll find
A midnight train is getting nearer

Starlight Express, Starlight Express
Are you real? Yes or no?
Starlight Express, please answer me yes
I don't want you to go

Take me to the places I have never been
Bring me home safely before I wake up
'Cause I believe in you completely though you may be unseen
This is not the kind of thing that anyone can make up

Starlight Express, Starlight Express
Are you real? Yes or no?
Starlight Express, please answer me yes
I don't want you to go

You're in need of bigger world to help you
Don't go on worrying deep inside

My Starlight Express, please answer me yes

6. LOST WITHOUT HER LOVE



Looking out my window
Watching through the rain
Wishing she were here right next to me
One chance in a million
I know that's all I have
Whoa, a miracle's the one thing that I need

[Bridge:]
(Want her back) the way it used to be
(Never had) her long enough
Oh, can't you see

[Chorus:]
I'm lost without her love
I don't know where to run
I just can't get her out of my dreams
Oh I'm lost without her love
Knowing she's the one
Who could ever hope to rescue me

Talking to my shadow
Saying I'm all right
Trying to get through this lonely night
Knowing just how empty
Forever's gonna be
Living without her here by my side

[Bridge & Chorus]

Now, now it all begins
I start to pretend
I see her in the distance in my mind
Wrapped up in these chains
Her memory still remains
She's just too hard to shake

[Chorus x3: fade]

7. HOW CAN YOU LOVE ME




You know what?
You're such a perfect lover,
And baby you can do better with me,
But you stand by me like a soldier,
Sweet loving until,
That's right baby!
Set me up on a pedestal,
Still love me more,
It's a mystery why I'm so lucky,
I keep trying to figure it out!

Tell me how can you love me so much, girl?
Put up with all of the crazy things that I do
How can you love me so much, baby?
I can always count on you.

I think you're trying to tame me,
Yes, you are!
But I don't think you gonna change me no,

When it feels like the world is on your shoulders,
And all of the madness has got you going crazy.

Underneath electric stars.

A night for romance, an night you won√Ąt forget

10. WHEN I SEE YOU




Ra ra ra ra, ohhh
Hooo, huuu.

Just a thought of you, be with someone else,
That will never do, want you for myself,
Girl, what we've been through,
Baby, me and you, guess we never knew who turned out to be who.

[Chorus:]
'Cause when I see you, I just die, girl
I can't explain and my heart stops breathing
Without you, in my life, girl, the feeling takes me away,
When, I see you, I couldn't lie, girl
I never wanted to wish somebody,
New, in my life girl,
And that's the way I feel when I see you, you, you.

No more loneliness, no more emptiness,
Tell I love you strong, let's hold on to this,
I will cherish you, let me sheld to you,
And I promise you, all your dreams will come true.

[Chorus:]
'Cause when I see you, I just die, girl
I can't explain and my heart stops breathing
Without you, in my life, girl, the feeling takes me away,
When, I see you, I couldn't lie, girl
I never wanted to wish somebody,
New, in my life girl,
And that's the way I feel when I see you girl.

I never felt this much about anything,
Girl you know you got me good... and you sing,
I say.,.of your faces, and strangers of places,
It doesn't matter what I do.

[Chorus:]
'Cause when I see you, I just die, girl
I can't explain and my heart stops breathing
Without you, in my life, girl, the feeling takes me away,
When, I see you, I couldn't lie, girl
I never wanted to wish somebody,
New, in my life girl,
And that's the way I feel when I see you girl.

All this time, I know what we've been through,
Is better, and better, I love you forever,
Baby you never know who turns out to be...
... September, I'll always remember,
All this time I know what we've been through,
Yeah,.. I love you forever
Baby I never thought it turn,..
After all we've been through, I'm still in love with you.
When I see you, girl, I just die, girl,
'Cause when I see you, girl I just die, girl,
When I see you, I just die, girl.

11. YOU GOT THE LOVE I WANT



All alone sad and brokenhearted
Didn't have no peace within
Thought that I would feel this way forever
Oh, but darlin' you brought the Heaven back again
Sun didn't shine, it just kept on raining

So I thought my life was over
But you brought the rainbow at the end of the storm
And if I had to do it all over again
I'd start my life with you, oh baby

You got the love I want
(You're my Heaven)
And I know that you got the love I want
(You're my angel)
You got the love I want
(Can't stop thinkin' about you, baby)
Long as I live my life
I want to live my life for you

I must confess, girl, I love you, baby
Although at times I try not to show it
But you got that way of always makin' me say
Here I go, I'm givin' in again
Sometimes, I just sit down and watch you, baby

What did I ever do to deserve you?
You don't ever have to worry bout
What another girl may say or do
'Cause I've searched and I've searched girl, my whole life through
And none of them compare to you, no baby

You got the love I want
(You're my Heaven)
And I know that you got the love I want
(You're my angel)
You got the love I want
(Can't stop thinkin' about you, baby)
Long as I live my life
I want to live my life for you

I can't stop thinkin' 'bout you, baby
You occupy each moment of the day
Me for you, you for me
That's the way it's supposed to be, baby
Shout it from a mountain
'Cause I want the world to know that

You got the love I want
You got the love I want
(You're my angel)
You got the love I want
(Nobody else will do)
Long as I live my life
I want to live my life for you

You touch my heart, baby
I never thought that I could find
Somebody like you, baby
You're so sweet, you're so kind
I swear nobody loves me like you do
And honey as long as I live
I want to live my life for you

You got the love I want
(Got my soul, don't cha know?)
You got the love I want
(You must have been sent from above)
You got the love I want
(Hey baby, oh girl)
Long as I live

12. WHO IS JOHNNY

There she goes and knows I'm dying
When she says, "Who is Johnny?"
Games with names that girl is playing
All she says is "Who is Johnny?"

I try to understand because I'm people too
And playing games is part of human nature
My heart's in overdrive
It's great to be alive

Chorus:
"Who's Johnny?" she said
And smiled in her special way
"Johnny" she said
"You know I love you"
"Who's Johnny?" she said
And tried to look the other way
Her eyes gave her away

She makes sure I see her teasing
Hear her say "Who is Johnny?"
There's no way to take this easy
Hear her say "Who is Johnny?"

I really couldn't help but fall in love with her
Her being there
has made my life worth living
I knew it from the start
That I would lose my heart

CHORUS

Still pretending
Who's Johnny Who's Johnny
Who's Johnny Who's Johnny
"Who's Johnny?" she said
And tried to look the other way
Her eyes gave her away

Girls like her are very special
Girls like her don't rest
'Till you too are a believer
'Till you too have caught their fever

There she goes and knows I'm dying
When she says "Who is Johnny?"

13. LOVE ALWAYS



"Love Always"

I got a secret for you
Can't believe myself
But ever since you've been gone
I think of no one else
I've even tried to forget
But nothing can make me

I know that it's so hard to be true
Under the summer skies
I'll write your name in my Book
At least a thousand times
And every day you're away
It's drivin' me crazy

So I'll write you every night
And I'll sign my name "Love always"
And even if the sun falls down
I will always be around
Forever and always
Darlin', if we both can wait
We'll have a time to celebrate
For the rest of our lives, love always

And lots of people I know
Try to shape your mind
But that can't happen to me
I'm not the jealous kind
No one can change what I feel
And nothing can make me

Still I'll write to you every night
And I'll sign my name, "Love always"
And even if the sun falls down
I will always be around
Forever and always
Darlin', if we both can wait, oh
We'll have the time to celebrate
For the rest of our lives, love always
For the best of our lives, love always
For the rest of our lives

We'll always be
So faithfully
Just hang on to me forever

So I'll write you every night
And I'll sign my name, "Love always"
Oh, and if by now you haven't guessed
I will add one more P.S.
For the rest of our lives, love always
For the best of our lives, love always

I'll sign this letter to you "Love always"
Oh, know it
Oh... oh... oh... I Love you baby
Oh, and if I do over and over again
Sign my name over in full
And at the end and rest of our lives, love always
Love always
Ooh girl
Sounds so good to me, mmm
For the rest of our lives love always, oh
For the rest of our lives love always, oh da da
Oh, I, I gotta secret for you
I don't wanna stop, sounds so good to me
Oh, ever and a day
I'll always love you
Ever and a day
Oh

14. I WANNA HEAR IT FROM MY HEART




[Verse 1:]
Lying here close beside you
Thinking of times before
Love was a game and love me more
Now I need to feel the rhythm
Coming from deep inside
I wanna know his right and I...

[Chorus:]
I wanna hear it from my heart
Wanna be sure before I start
And maybe his love is real
And I... I wanna know before I fall
To give all I got
Don't give nothing at all
I wanna hear it from my heart, oh

[Verse 2:]
Maybe I'm just too cautious
But maybe I need some time
Time to convince this heart of mine, oh... oh... oh...
That I can really trust you
(Really trust you)
'Cause I've learned that words can lie
I hear it from your lips but I...

[Chorus:]
I wanna hear it from my heart
(Hear it from my heart)
Wanna be sure before I start
And maybe his love is real
And I, I, I wanna know before I fall
To give all I got
Don't give nothing at all
I wanna hear it from my heart, oh

[Intsrumental: with breakdown]
Mmm... mmm... mmm...
Oh, no
I hear it from your lips but I...

[Chorus:]
I wanna hear it from my heart
(Hear it from my heart)
Wanna be sure before I start
And maybe his love is real
And I, I, I wanna know before I fall
To give all I got
Don't give nothing at all
(Nothing at all)
Before I fall in love, oh

I wanna hear it from my heart
Wanna know where we stand right from the start
Wanna know that his love is real love
I wanna hear it from my heart
(Hear it from my heart)
To give all I got
Don't give nothing at all
(Nothing at all)
I wanna hear it from my heart

(I wanna hear it from my heart)
(Wanna be sure before I start)
Oh... oh... oh... oh... oh... oh... baby
I wanna hear it from my heart
