Hope (Rob Davis/Steve Mac)
When nothin' goes your way
Your heart begins to pay
However hard you try the problems seem endless

It's your own bed you make
Not gonna go away
You just break down and cry must be a way out of this

No use feelin' sorry for yourself
Cos you've got something else

Hope
There's gotta be a little bit of you and me
Hope
The only way we're gonna keep our sanity
Hope
There's gotta be a little bit of you and me
Whatever it takes hold on
Keep ridin' through the storm

Don't dream of giving up
Don't dream of givin in
Just gotta keep your head the answers all within you

Don't think of losin' heart
It's tearin you apart
Just gotta carry on you know you can get through

No use feelin' sorry for yourself
Cos you've got something else

Hope
There's gotta be a little bit of you and me
Hope
The only way we're gonna keep our sanity
Hope
There's gotta be a little bit of you and me
Whatever it takes hold on
Keep ridin' through the storm

Well I want what you want that's right
So baby don't give up the fight

Hope
There's gotta be a little bit of you and me
Hope
The only way we're gonna keep our sanity x3
Hope
There's gotta be a little bit of you and me
Whatever it takes hold on
Keep ridin' through the storm

 

So Damn Beautiful (Mark Read/Graham Stack)
Your'e so damn beautiful tonight
So how can I make you love me

Well it''s six am, I'm awake again
And I can't get you out of my head
You wore your dress so tight
And you danced all night
You took my heart and left me for dead
But I don't even know your name
'Cos you didn't give that much away
Will I ever feel the same again
Now I'm caught up in the games you play

You're so damn beautiful tonight
How Can I make you love me
I'm so blinded by you're light
How can I make you see
That I would walk a thousand miles to
Find my way to you
You're so damn beautiful
And I want to make you mine

I thought I saw you're face
In a crowded place
But it was just a shadow of you
Now I'm all alone waiting by the phone
I'm hoping that my message got through
But I didn't even ask your name
Even though we danced the night away
Suddenly you left without a trace
Before I had the chance to say

You're so damn beautiful tonight
How can I make you love me
I'm so blinded by you're light
How can I make you see
That I would walk a thousand miles to
Find my way to you
You're so damn beautiful
And I want to make you mine

But I don't even know your name
'Cos you didn't give that much away
Will I ever feel the same again
Now I'm caught up in the games you play

You're so damn beautiful tonight
How can I make you love me
I'm so blinded by you're light
How can I make you see
That I would walk a thousand miles to
Find my way to you
You're so damn beautiful
And I want to make you mine

Make you see

I just want to make you love me

So damn beautiful

I don't know your name

So damn beautiful

You drive me crazy

So damn beautiful

 

Prove Me Wrong (Mark Read/Graham Stack)
Did you lie, when you said you'd always be there for me
Did you care, when I said I'd walk out the door
Now is it me, or are things not how they used to be
'Cos deep in side, I'm feeling so unsure
Now I could run away and hide
But I'm still here by your side

But every time I try to say goodbye
You find a way to make me change my mind
Tell me how can I be sure your love is strong
I don't want to make the same mistake
There's only so much pain a heart can take
But every time I tell myself I can't go on
You prove me wrong

When you dream, am I still the one in your fantasy
When we touch, does it feel the same as before
'Cos all I know is I can't give up so easily
There are times when I'm feeling insecure
Now I could run away tonight
But I'm still here by your side

But every time I try to say goodbye
You find a way to make me change my mind
Tell me how can I be sure your love is strong
I don't want to make the same mistake
There's only so much pain a heart can take
But every time I tell myself I can't go on
You prove me wrong

Prove me wrong, prove me wrong
Prove me wrong, prove me wrong

Now I could run away tonight
But I'm still here by your side

Every time I try to say goodbye
You find a way to make me change my mind
Tell me how can I be sure your love is strong
I don't want to make the same mistake
There's only so much pain a heart can take
But every time I tell myself I can't go on
You prove me wrong

Prove me wrong

You know I can't go on

You know I can't go on

You prove me wrong

How can I tell myself

You prove me wrong

 

Break Me (Rob Davis/Gregg Alexander/Enrique Iglesias)
Do anything you want
But never find the heart to leave me
Cos I need you too much
So play your game but don't desert me
You're being hurt, undone
True lovin baby please believe me

Don't be afraid to trust me
I wouldn't trade you for the world
And if you feel you've gotta test me
Before you'll be my girl

Well you can take me, you can break me
But you can't make me (kill my love)
Cos that's the only thing I won't do for you

Cos I say too much
I am rehearsed so please forgive me
Well I can't help but touch
For please so keep inside you in me
I threw away my crutch
I'm not a boy you dare to see me

Don't be afraid to try me
C'mon and give a guy a whirl
And if you feel you've gotta test me
Before you'll be my girl

Well you can take me, you can break me
But you can't make me (kill my love)
Cos that's the only thing I won't do for you

I was makin lotta time o' mine
So now you take me to the other side
I wanna get somewhere inside your world
So come on away girl

 

Shine On Me (Robert Hart/Mark Read/Cliff Masterson)
Look at us, we've come so far
Every road travelled says who we are
Like a tide, we rise and fall
We sail on, through the storm,

So many changes in my life
Every precious moment has a sacrifice
There were times when I stood alone
I found the strength to carry on

And when I thought the walls were closing in around me
Oh baby you were my fight

I was standing in the dark waiting for the light to shine on me
When you came into my life like a thousand angels watching over me
Well I have nowhere left to go
And I can't take it any more
You were right there in front of me
Now I'm holding out my heart, giving all I've got
'Cos you're part of me, let it shine on me

In a time where worlds collide
So many teardrops from a strangers eyes
There's an answer inside of you
Close your eyes, see the truth

Just when you think the walls are closing in around you
Oh baby I'll be your fight

I was standing in the dark waiting for the light to shine on me
When you came into my life like a thousand angels watching over me
Well I have nowhere left to go
And I can't take it any more
You were right there in front of me
Now I'm holding out my heart, giving all I've got
'Cos you're part of me, let it shine on me

You don't need to hide in the shadows alone
All you have to do is stand up, you're not on your own
Take a look around you babe

Well I have nowhere left to go
And I can't take it any more
You were right there in front of me
I was standing in the dark waiting for the light to shine on me
When you came into my life like a thousand angels watching over me

Let it shine on me

I was standing in the dark waiting for the light to shine on me
When you came into my life like a thousand angels watching over me

 

Suspended Animation (Rob Davis/Tom Nicholls)
You got me caught up in this dream
Can't see the forest for the trees
My doctor says I'm wasting my life away
I'm dying for a girl who just wants to play
And still I'm begging baby
Won't you take me please

They say you can never rise above your station
But girl you've got me hanging in suspended animation

You're always screening all my calls
You've got me bouncing off your walls
If love is being patient until hte day
I'm never gonna touch noone else again
But first you've gotta let me
Calm you, one time please

They say you can never rise above your station
But girl you've got me hanging in suspended animation

My doctor says I'm wasting my life away
I'm dying for a girl who just wants to play
And still I'm begging baby
Won't you take me please

They say you can never rise above your station
But girl you've got me hanging in suspended animation

 

Touch Me (Rob Davis/Gregg Alexander/Enrique Iglesias)
I was alone weighing all my fantasies
Until you came and liberated me
And taught my soul much about humanity yea yea yea
I needed you to know
I'm more than just a one night stand
And girl with your permission
Maybe you can give me your hand
I'm at your command

It's just the way you touch me baby
Oh it's the way you touch me baby
We can walk we can talk all night long
It's the way you touch me baby

I was alone grasping for my sanity
Your beauty came free of vanity
Wo blew my mind gave me your anatomy yea yea yea
And if you didn't know
I'm more than just a one night stand
I need some supervision
I'm losing all control of my hands
They're at your command

It's just the way you touch me baby
Oh it's the way you touch me baby
We can walk we can talk all night long
It's the way you touch me baby

And if you didn't know
You got me feeding from your hand
My chef is gonna blow
And baby it ain't going to end until your command

It's just the way you touch me baby
Oh it's the way you touch me baby
We can walk we can talk all night long
It's the way you touch me baby

 

Emotions (Rob Davis/Lamont Dozier)
What is this feeling, confusing me more and more
I'm out of control and my body is oh so unsure
Don't understand what's happened to me
This is not how it should be
Everyday the world gets harder to face
For these loving arms there's no better place

Emotions, running away with me
Changing me endlessly, affecting my gravity
Emotions, taking me up and down
Turning my life around, Stealing my energy
(Take, keep, holding, feel the gravity,
Got no energy, changing endlessly)

I search for solutions, no hope for conclusions, I'm torn
What is this life about, I can't work out why I was born
Ooh, don't know what is this thought, is the power of thought in me
It's a strange reaction, but I never fekt this way before
It seems to have a life of its own
it goes on and on and on

Emotions, running away with me
Changing me endlessly, affecting my gravity
Emotions, taking me up and down
Turning my life around, Stealing my energy
(Take, keep, holding, feel the gravity,
Got no energy, changing endlessly)

 

Weakness (Rob Davis/Chris Braide)
Walk on a lonely street,
Don't know where I am,
I don't understand

Lost in the wilderness
And I burn for you
In the solitude

No matter where I go I can't forget
Sometimes I wish we'd never met

You're my weakness
In the middle of the night
And I wonder who you're dreamin of
You're my weakness
And as hard as I fight
Lying here without you
And I'm feeling like the end of the world

The end of the world

My heart is an empty place full of memories
That I can't erase
Time could be standing still
And for all I know
It forever will

Without my arms around you I feel cold
In deep and losing all control

You're my weakness
In the middle of the night
And I wonder who you're dreamin of
You're my weakness
And as hard as I fight
Lying here without you
And I'm feeling like the end of the world

Give me a reason to give up on you
I'm watchin and waitin for shooting stars
To shine on you

You're my weakness
In the middle of the night
And I wonder who you're dreamin of
You're my weakness
And as hard as I fight
Lying here without you
Lying here without you

 

Live It Up (Rob Davis/Gregg Alexander/Enrique Iglesias)
We're strong, we're weak, we die
We're straight, we're gay, we're bi
We're black, we're white, but why
To tell the truth we lie
We get so trapped inside our little lives
They disappear before our very eyes

So come on live it up tonight
Live it up tonight, move on
It's time we give it up tonight
Live it up tonight, from now on

We loved, we lost, we tried
Do you say I'm fine 'cos I die
I'm so sick and tired of crying
So tonight it's time we just fly
So now we got so caught up in the deal
We lost the only thing we got that's real

So come on live it up tonight
Live it up tonight, move on
It's time we give it up tonight
Live it up tonight, from now on

na na na na na na
'Cos we can heal, make it real, can't you feel

And now it hurts so bad to say goodbye
I know my love for you is still alive

So come on live it up tonight
Live it up tonight, move on
It's time we give it up tonight
Live it up tonight, from now on

 

Yesterday's Gone (Mark Read/Mark Topham/Karl Twigg)
In a city where nobody speaks
Where people livin just to make ends meet
And lookin back over their shoulders
At the road they should be on
It gets me wishin I could catch a wave
I'm drinkin red wine in the sunshine
And sleeping away too long
Lotsa strange things can change, ain't that the way
You think you got it figured out
And blows you away

Yesterday's gone baby don't you know
You'll never get it back, gotta let it go
Yesterday's gone, it's a one night show
But you got tomorrow yea
Yesyerday's gone, look at how you've grown
Never give it up cos you're not alone
Yesterday's gone
Don't have a heart of stone yea yea yea

Ain't it a pity the way we live
Always thinkin that there's more than this
Getting sick and tired of tryin to find
Someone else we can get along
Reminiscin about the long lost days
Like a movie that I might replay
When every day lasted a lifetime
And summer went on and on
Lots of strange things can change
Ain't that the way
You think you got it figured out
And knows your own away

Yesterday's gone baby don't you know
You'll never get it back, gotta let it go
Yesterday's gone, it's a one night show
But you got tomorrow yea
Yesyerday's gone, look at how you've grown
Never give it up cos you're not alone
Yesterday's gone
Don't have a heart of stone

Instrumental break

Yesterday's gone baby don't you know
You'll never get it back, gotta let it go
Yesterday's gone, it's a one night show
But you got tomorrow yea
Yesyerday's gone, look at how you've grown
Never give it up cos you're not alone
Yesterday's gone
Don't have a heart of stone

 

Let Love Pass (Rob Davis/Chris Braide)
Don't look back
Don't turn around
Keep straight ahead
I won't cry
If you say this is it
Hurts so bad
Leave me alone
Time to move on
There's the door
If you say this is it

Just walk away
Tell me goodbye
If that's what you want
Don't tell me why
It's not ok
But that's your choice
Let love pass you by

Please don't call
Somewhere in time
When you're all alone
What's gone is gone

Just walk away
Tell me goodbye
If that's what you want
Don't tell me why
It's not ok
But that's your choice
Let love pass you by

Maybe someday when you're searchin for somethin
You'll realise what you've thrown away
Then I'll be long gone so don't try and hold on
There's no lookin back for today

Just walk away
Tell me goodbye
If that's what you want
Don't tell me why
It's not ok
But that's your choice
Let love pass you by

Let love pass you by
