Explain It To My Heart

If It Were You

You Come To My Senses

Somebody Somewhere

What Does It Take

One From The Heart

Chasin' The Wind

God Save The Queen

Man To Woman

Only Time Can Heal The Wounded

Who Do You Love

Holdin' On


"Explain It To My Heart" (Diane Warren)

I understand there's no future for us here

Guess I fooled myself into thinking there was

Now you've made it clear

It'll never be right

Guess we knew it all along

Now we've got to say good-bye and I've got to be strong

So tell me one more time how it's better for the both of us

Tell me one more time how we'll hurt each other if we stay

Tell me one more time then darling there's just one more thing

Before you walk away

(Chorus)

Explain it to my heart

It's better that we're over now

Tell me one more time this is the way that it's supposed to be

Tell me that I'm better off without you

How it's better to forget about you

Darling I understand

Now won't you please explain it to my heart


Now if I try I can see the reasons why

Why we can't stay together and I might convince my mind

But it's breaking my heart to know I've got to let you go

To find that I must leave behind the only love I've known

Well I can tell myself that I never really needed you

I can tell myself that it's better just to say good-bye

I can tell myself a thousand lies

But tell me now

Tell me how do I

(Chorus)

Say that I'll be better

If we don't stay together

Say that I'll be better off free

But don't say it to me

Explain it to my heart...


"If It Were You" (Jason Scheff/Darin Scheff/Tony Smith)

There's a time when the heart can no longer give in

You try to stand up and fight

You've known pain for so long and you know what's gone wrong

But you can't make it right

Another broken heart is all you're feeling

How can you go on

But the memories of the times there was love in your eyes

Keep leading me on

(Chorus)

If it were you

Would you hold on and hope that it might

Bring back the dreams we once knew

Or just give up forever that part of your life

Tell me what would you do

If it were you


You can never take back all you've given in love

No matter how hard you try

Once it's over and done you just have to let go

Though a part of you died

Another waste of time is all that's left now

But life must go on

All the nights that we spent, never thought they would end

Why can't they go on

(Chorus)

If it were you

Would you hold on and hope that it might

Bring back the love we once knew

Or just give up forever that part of your life

Tell me what would you do

If it were you

If it were you

Tell me what would you do

If it were you

Over and over I go back through time

Didn't we promise our love till we die

Asking you deep down inside

Did we really try

Another broken heart is all that's left

But life must go on

All the nights that we spent, never thought they would end

Why can't they go on

(Chorus)


"You Come To My Senses" (Billy Steinberg/Tom Kelly)

I picture you on the beach

Lying in the sand

Out of reach of my trembling hands

I picture you in a car

Blonde hair in the wind

I picture you in my arms

And the touch of your skin

The smile on your face

The way that you taste

(Chorus)

You come to my senses

Every time I close my eyes

I have no defenses

You come to my senses

I can't stop this ache inside

I have no defenses

You come to my senses


Driving home in the cold

January rain

I've got to find my way out of this pain

I reached for you in the night

I dreamed of your kiss

I woke before it got light

With your name on my lips

Alone in my bed

Your voice in my head

(Chorus)

I picture you in my arms

And the touch of your skin

The smile on your face

The way that you taste

You come to my senses

Every time I close my eyes

I have no defenses

You come to my senses

I can't stop this ache inside

Oh, I have no defenses

You come to my senses

Ah...


"Somebody Somewhere" (Bill Champlin/Dennis Matkosky/Kevin Dukes)

The sun is coming up

But I don't see the light

I keep goin' on and on

Thinking 'bout where we went wrong

I've always heard that love

Could stand the test of time

But somethin' that we had is gone

Maybe we just stayed too long

I wish that I could lie

And tell myself it's alright

It was nothing at all

(Chorus)

Somebody, somewhere

Is falling in love tonight

Is it nothing at all

Somebody, somewhere

Is saying their last goodbyes

I gotta know

Is it the same when it comes

And when love goes


Where do I go from here

Don't know where to turn

Will you find another face

Or disappear in yesterday

Should I hold on

Should I let all the memories go

Was it nothing at all

(Chorus)

She comes and goes...

(Chorus)


"What Does It Take" (Jason Scheff/Gerard McMahon)

All I do is think about you

I never did let go of what we were

Can't pretend I'll live without you

As I learn to live alone

Why can't I be a man about it

I've tried and tried to hide you from my heart

If I could just forget about us

If I knew just where to start

You're still my destiny

(Chorus)

What does it take

To win you back

To hold in these arms once more

What can I say

To make you understand

You're still all I'm waiting for


At times I feel it's best without you

And times I still believe in you so much

After what I've been through without you

You'd think that I'd move on

But you're still my destiny

(Chorus)

What does it take

'Cause we can't go back

Can't be like it was before

What does it take

To win you back

To hold in these arms

What does it take

What will it take now

You're still my destiny

(Chorus)


"One From The Heart" (Robert Lamm/Gerard McMahon)

I'm movin' too fast, the pace of things has got to change

I never have time to think of words I want to say

I look around me, I don't know who really knows

What does it matter anyway?

Sometimes I feel like I've got a heart made out of stone

And somedays I feel so alone

When nobody sees what's going on anymore

If I could just know that someone's there

One from the heart that's all it takes

One to hold you, one who knows you

One to one together

One from the heart, one for each day

One to lean on, one to keep on

Keep on getting stronger the more I see your face


It's never too late to get to where I want to go

It's never too late to get to love someone

All that I need is to be more than yesterday

And all I can give along the way

One from the heart that's all it takes

One to hold you, one who knows you

One to one together

One from the heart, one for each day

One to lean on, one to keep on

The words you will remember

The words you'll hear me say

It's all about love

It's all about give and take


"Chasin' the Wind" (Diane Warren)

Did the best I could

To make you mine

If you ever felt anything for me

Well, you never gave a sign

Thought time would make you change

Make you want me

But baby I never had a chance

Now I know that there's just some things

Just not meant to be

(Chorus)

No use

Making you care about me

No way

That I'm gonna win

Oh darlin'

I might as well be

Chasin' the wind

Oh, I'm just

Chasin' the wind


Opened up my heart

Let you inside

If love was what you were lookin' for

Well, I guess it wasn't mine

So I guess I better go

It's over and done

But you know I'm not really sad at all

'Cause you can't really say it's over

When it never had begun

(Chorus)

Can't reach the sea

If you can't get past the sand

Can't touch the sky

If you can't reach up your hand

Can't give if you give nothing back

(Chorus)


"God Save The Queen" (James Pankow/Jason Scheff)

Smoke in the sky

Slime in the sea

Tall timber tumblin' down around me

Red acid rain

Glows in the night

Nuclear winter closes down on me

The light of the world is fading to black

And the absence of people who care

Is bringing me down, bringing me down

(Chorus)

God save the queen

Dear mother earth is dying away

Time's running out

One more tomorrow depends on today


Nowhere to run

Nowhere to hide

Greenhouse condition getting' steamier

Nobody's clean

Nobody's free

Nobody's breathin' any easier

The children of earth are dying each day

And the nightmare of who is to blame

Is bringing me down, bringing me down

(Chorus)


"Man To Woman" (Jason Scheff/Adam Mitchell)

Girl, when the moon across the water starts to rise

I'll be looking for tomorrow and I'll see it in your eyes

Girl, though the strongest heart'll shatter in a storm

Now we got this love that we can run to

Tonight, I'll keep you warm

(Chorus)

Man to woman

When you're lying next to me

Man to woman

Girl you're everything I need

Hold on, we'll always be

Always you and me


Hold me close

You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've known

I can feel the fire that burns inside you

Look how this love has grown

(Chorus)

Man to woman (man to woman)

Man to woman (man to woman)

Just say we'll always be

Always you and me

I wanna hold you in the night

Can't you see

That I'm just livin' for your light

I want the world to know

I can't let you go

(Chorus)

Man to woman (man to woman)

Man to woman (man to woman)

I want the world to see

Baby what you mean to me


"Only Time Can Heal The Wounded" (Robert Lamm/Gerard McMahon)

You hear a sound as she's leaving

You'll hear your heart pound so hard

You'll miss her warm touch and the way things once were

It's such a cold town when you miss her

It's not the same place no more

When it's hard to mend what's broken

And you still can't let her go

Beyond the storm there's an answer

Beyond the nights you spend alone

Beyond the headlights and the highways you go

You'll take a long ride without her

Until the tears dry away

In every way you try to reason

When there's no reason left to hold

Only time can heal the wounded of love

Any day now time will tell

Only love can turn it all around again

There's no heart that time can't heal


Whatever pieces you're missing

Whatever you leave behind

However you look at things they do change

It's not the same conversation

It's not the way that it was

There'll be one less tear tomorrow

There'll be one less night alone

Only time can heal the wounded of love

Any day now time will tell

Only love can turn it all around again

There's no heart that time can't heal

Only time can heal the wounded of love

There's no heart that time can't heal


"Who Do You Love" (Bill Champlin/Dennis Matkosky)

I never know

What you're gonna do

You're always so far away

Down below

You used to tell the truth

Now you're lookin' for something to say

You give me those eyes

And then look away

Do you want me down on my knees

Are you livin' a lie

Is this some kind of game

Baby, won't you tell me please

Give me one good reason to stay

When you won't come

Right out and say

(Chorus)

Who do you love

What makes you happen

What do you need for satisfaction

Who do you love

I need an answer

Is it just about a good time, good time

Who do you love


I wish that you'd lie

Or tell me the truth

So I can decide for myself

Maybe you've tried

What we used to do

With somebody, somewhere else

Give me one good reason to stay

When you won't come

Right out and say

(Chorus)


"Holdin' On" (Bill Champlin/Tom Saviano)

Walkin' through time

Reachin' for yesterday

'Cause we're frightened of tomorrow

Trying to find

The feeling that's gone astray, far away

I remember the look in your eyes

Love we made unafraid

Now we've opened the window

So let's not close the shade

(Chorus)

Holdin' on

'Cause the memory of you

Is something I just can't erase

Holdin' on

I don't know what to do

'Cause the pieces won't fit into place

But no matter what happens

We can't let it end this way


So far away

So close to something new

But we're holdin' off tomorrow

Maybe someday

We'll find what we need to do, until then

We'll be doing the best that we can

Out of rhyme, out of time

While we're hiding our feelings

We're leaving love behind

(Chorus)

Far away

Reachin' for yesterday

So far away

Something has gone away

So afraid

To find what we had

(Chorus)
