Casualty (Bliss)
Driving home I was miles away
When I thought that I saw your face
Late at night, a lightning flash
Put reality in it's place
I never saw the warning signs
'til it was too late

I'm a casualty
A victim of my own circumstance
A casualty a hopeless case
that never stood a chance at all

I never knew what hit me
Like somebody put out the light
I was going crazy
Couldn't tell if it was day or night
I must have lost direction
A simple hit and run

chorus

Out of control on a one way street
Feeling myself beginning to slide
Out of my head too blind to see
That you were there just for the ride

Living this life in tragedy
Why did this happen to me

chorus

I never stood a chance
I'm a casualty x3

 

Take My Love and Run (Chatton / Black)
Time is here
The moments right
There's nothing left for me to fight
Fill me no favours if I'm lonely tonight

All alone on my own
Gotta be the only way
Finally it looks like we've got nothing to say

I don't mind
You gotta be cruel to be kind
And all we do all day is fight
You say wrong and I say right

Take my love and run
Get out before the morning sun
I gave you all I had and more in vain
You won't do this to me again
No, you won't do this to me again

I don't mind
You gotta be cruel to be kind
We're in the life we started
Just a little more broken hearted

chorus x3

 

Say You'll Be Mine (Bliss)
Thinking about you
How it would be
If I could live without you
Something I just can't seem to visualise
When I look into your eyes
I only hear the words I want to hear

Say that you'll be mine
For ever and ever
You don't have to tell the truth
But I want you to
Say that you're mine
Say that you'll be mine
For ever and ever
Let me live a fantasy
Gotta lie to me won't you please
Say that you're mine

Deep inside me
I hear a warning voice
Speak softly to me
Asking how I could ever be so blind
I've been trying to read your mind
Why don't you say the words I want to hear

Why don't you

chorus

Doing all I can to make you see
Ooh, baby what you do to me
Don't you know my heart's in jeopardy
The effect you havin' over me

chorus x2

 

Something Ain't Right (Torney / Spencer / Snow)
Something
Something ain't right
Something
Something ain't right

Feeling kind of low inside
Longing to be by your side
See you there before my eyes
This love I feel has no disguise

But what's in a love when you feel so denied
I can't count all the times I've tried

Something ain't right
But I'm never gonna let that something
Make me stop without a fight
No something ain't right
And it's been on my mind
Just a little too much
And bringing me down
Something
Something ain't right
Something
Something ain't right

Sittin' in the dimmest of light
In my room with a view of the night
In the time it took for you to call
You left me holding onto nothing at all
I'll accept what I can
But I can't understand
Why you want it to end this way

If The Lights Go Out (Batt)
They say the world must end somehow
They say the end's not far from now
I think they're wrong
Don't worry your life away
Start living for today
Don't think about tomorrow

And if the lights go out
On all of us
In just a year or two
And if the sky falls down
Like pouring rain
Then I'll be here with you
I'll go down with you

Well I'm gonna try
For all I'm worth
To stay with you till the ends of the earth
Don't let me down
Don't let your feelings win
Don't give out and don't give in
Don't think about tomorrow

chorus x2

 

Stop In The Name Of Love (Holland / Dozier / Holland)
Oh baby I'm aware
Of where you go
Each time you leave my door
Watching you walking down the street
Knowing there's another guy you meet
This time before you run to him
Leaving me alone again

Think it over
Haven't I been good to you babe
Think it over

Stop in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Stop in the name of love
Before you tear it apart

I'm trying hard
Hard to be patient
Wish you'd stop
This infatuation
But each time I think of you together
I see myself losing you forever
This time before you leave my heart
And rush back into his arms

verse 2

Haven't I been sweet to you baby

chorus x3

 

I Got What I Want (Bliss / Kipner)
No amount of money
Could ever buy my love
'Cos there's no prettier face
Could take your place
No amount of rivalry
Nobody but you gets to me
I'm way past falling in love with you

I got what I want
Nobody can take it away
I'll keep what I got
I'm never gonna lose it
I got what I want

No friendly persuasion
Could ever change my mind
Like water off a duck's back
It's wasted time

chorus

Always knew what I wanted
So I've never been satisfied
I never settled for second best
And I wasn't denied

chorus

Nobody can take it away
I got what I want
Never gonna lose it
I got what I want
Nobody can take it away
I'll keep what I got
Never gonna lose it
I got what I want
Nobody can take it away
I'll keep what I got

 

Just One Look (Payne / Carroll)
Just one look
I felt so I, I, I'm in love
with you
I found out
How good it feels
To have your love
Say you will
will be mine
Forever and always
Just one look and I knew
That you were my only one

I thought I was dreaming
But I was wrong, yeah yeah yeah
Oh, but I'm gonna keep on scheming
Til I can make you
Make you my own

Can't you see
That I really care
Without you
I'm nothin'
Just one look
And I knew
I'll get you some day

chorus

Just one look, that's all it took
Just one look

 

Someone Else's Eyes (Bliss)
If you're going now
There's nothin' more to say
So don't turn around
Unless you mean to stay
'Cause we've been through this
So many times before
It doesn't make it anymore

There never seemed to be
A time for explanations
Everything just seems
To move so quickly now
But if I never seem
To reach your expectations
I'll make it up to you, somehow

Don't say goodbye
Don't search for what
You'll never find
In someone else's eyes
Don't say goodbye
The answer that you want
Will never lie
In someone else's eyes
In someone else's eyes

After all this time
I thought you knew me better
Never believed that I
Would ever see you go

chorus

In someone else's eyes


Having A Good Time (Bliss / Kipner)
You read the stars
Everyday in the paper
And believe every word they say
You want to know
If I'll always love you
But I can't see tomorrow today

So, I can't guarantee
A happy ending
The story is always unwinding
But right here and now
It doesn't matter
Are you having a good time

You know that I'm no fortune teller
I can't predict
How it will be
You need a love that lasts forever
That far ahead
I just can't see

So, I can't guarantee
A happy ending
I don't know what might've happen
But this me and you in this situation
Are you having a good time

If everything's perfect
What more could we ask for
We're here and now

Are you having a good time

You're somewhere off
Into the future
Imagining how it will look
Will we last another chapter
Can we make it last 'til the end of the book

So, I can't guarantee
A happy ending
The story is always unwinding
But right here and now
It doesn't matter
Having a good time
