Track Name: The Way I Feel
If there could be
One last chance
For you and me
Just one last dance

I’d never leave you
I’d always need you
Here with me

And the way I feel
Is only real
I know It’s only real
for me

Opened up my heart
Felt a little spark
But it wasn’t meant to be

It’s a rip tide of emotion
Pulled my heart out in the open
Feel waves crashing in the ocean
Of Love

My Love is strong
It’s never wrong
Have to give it to receive

It was always you
But I always knew
You never felt the same for me

Here I stand
A forgotten man
Loving you in memory

And you’ll always have
A place to be
Inside in my heart
A part of me

It’s a rip tide of emotion
Pulled my heart out in the open
Feel waves crashing in the ocean
Of Love

And the way I feel
Is only real
I know It’s only real
for me
Track Name: Human Feel
Looking for a friend who’s real
Not the virtual kind
I miss that human feel
But I’m swimming against the tide

Connected to a screen
My virtual friends online
But they only really see
My virtual state of mind
Virtual state of mind

Need the human touch
someone who’s real
Need the human touch
Need the Human Feel
Need the Human Feel

The world is changing
Social media’s taken hold
Virtual friend connections
Click like and then they scroll

I remember how it was
Not so long ago
No virtual internet buzz
We had real places to go
Real places to go

Need the human touch
someone who’s real
Need the human touch
Need the Human Feel
Need the Human Feel

Got a lot of love
With nowhere to go
Now I need to love again
With Someone I can hold

Want to hold her hand
Walk along the beach
And feel like a real man
Not a virtual memory
Just a virtual memory

Need the human touch
someone who’s real
Need the human touch
Need the Human Feel
Need the Human Feel
Track Name: Don't Know What Else
Don’t know what else I can say
I really messed it up today
Shoulda kept my feelings all inside

Emotions got the best of me
I ruined it with honesty
Now I got no place to hide

My feelings all locked up for years
Safe and well guarded by my fear
And I’m the fool who let them show
Now I have to let her go

It’s my fault I knew the risk
Opened myself up to this
Now I lost a long time friend

The friendship meant so much to me
But I just couldn’t let it be
Now I’m on the losing end

All my feelings gone away
Finally saw the light of day
All one sided so it seems
All alone now with my dream

I go back deep inside myself
Don’t try and nurse me back to health
Don’t know what came over me

My feelings really haven’t changed
I don’t think it’s all that strange
To express them to someone you Love

That someone may not feel the same
I Love her that’s not gonna change
And I won’t ever be ashamed
Of Love
Track Name: Tonight!
Wanna be your lover but you might say no
Wanna take you out and dance real slow
Hold you in my arms, never let you go
Tonight

Twinkle in the darkness at the first star light
Hoping you and I just maybe might
Stumble into something till the morning light
Tonight

I think I fell in Love one time before
Or was it just a dream
I can't be sure

Insecure nervous and I feel confused
Feeling like I never win, I always lose
A broken heart is something I don’t want to choose
Tonight

A moment is so fleeting it just rushed right by
Pretty soon we’re gonna have to say goodbye
Thinking I should kiss you but afraid to try
Tonight

I think I fell in Love one time before
Or was it just a dream
I can't be sure

Feel just like a shipwreck on the shore
Trying hard to feel like the boy next door
I’m weatherbeaten battered and I know the score
Tonight

Romance is something from a distant past
Love may come around but it won’t last
Need you more than ever let’s forget all that
Tonight

Pulled me close and kissed me by the door
It’s not a dream it’s real
And now I’m sure

Tonight, Tonight, We'll be Lovers Tonight
Tonight, Tonight, We'll be Lovers Tonight
Track Name: Distance & Time
SONG LYRICS

Thinkin’ about our yesterday
Before the years got in the way
And you
Are always in my heart
Yes you
Will always be a part of me

I can still hear the way you laugh
Echoing from that photograph
Of you
Are always in my heart
Yes you
Will always be a part of me

Old feelings fade away
Yeah they all just seem to change
with distance and time

If I try and rekindle that old flame
would you just simply pull away
From me
And let it fall apart
And leave
Me with a broken heart for you

Old feelings fade away
Yeah they all just seem to change
with distance and time

Will you still be mine
Track Name: First Love
First love is beautiful
So vulnerable and pure
Our innocence allows us to feel

There’s no hesitation
no cautionary fear
so honest, so new and so real

A feeling that can never be
Put into words
A memory you carry for life

When a virgin heart is broken
And feels the first sting
A deep cut that feels like a knife

First Love....First Love.....First Love

You want so much to love again
Like you did at first
But barriers keep you locked inside

Open up to love again
So beautiful and pure
Be vulnerable again and trust the ride

That first love was beautiful
But it’s been gone for years
There’s a different kind of love to discover

Let go don’t be afraid
It’s a gift from above
A gift to be shared with another

First Love....First Love.....First Love
Track Name: Fool For Love Again
I don’t wanna spend
The rest of my days
Waiting till the end
And how long that might take
Fool for Love again

I’m just a lonely man
And I’ve made my mistakes
Now I need a friend
To help me through the day

Will I live a lonely life
Love again before I die
All I know is I have to try
To feel it again
If I take a leap of faith
Will I fall flat on my face
Will I look just like the fool
I think I am
Fool for Love again

Will the Love inside me die
Will I live a lonely life
These are things I try
To understand

Got a Love deep inside
Why can’t it just pass through
Wants to take one last ride
With a heart that’s true

Will I live a lonely life
Love again before I die
All I know is I have to try
To feel it again
If I take a leap of faith
Will I fall flat on my face
Will I look just like the fool
I think I am
Fool for Love again

But Feelings come and go
least that’s what I been told
Should I sit back and watch them
And just grow old

Tangled up in my feelings
Why can’t they go away
Head spinning my heart is reeling
Nothing more to say
They never went away
Now nothing more to say
Track Name: Love That Never Comes is Here To Stay
I Keep waiting for a Love, a Love that never comes
A Love that ended long ago, for me she’s still the one
I imagine that she never, ever thinks of me that way
Or thinks of me at all, in her busy busy day.

An ocean breeze through her hair, we sat down on the beach
Both knowing that the end was near, and soon within our reach
And so we both agreed, and walked those thousand steps
Back up to the roadside, said goodbye then left

And even in that moment, so very long ago
I reasoned if you love someone, you have to let them go
Let Them go

I remember as a child, my broken broken home
I thought that’s just what happens, we all end up alone
End Up Alone, End Up Alone
And so what’s done is gone, you just can’t change the past
Be strong and face the future, find new Love that will last

But part of me remembers, her soft and gentle voice
Her laughter and her smile, she leaves me with no choice
No choice but to Love her, but in a different way
A Love that is a friendship, a Love that’s here to stay
