What Took You So Long?

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Oh, talk to me, can't you see
I'll help you work things out.
Oh, don't wanna be your enemy
And I don't want to scream and shout.

'Cos, baby, I believe in honesty
And then be strong and true.
I shouldn't have to say now, baby,
That I believe in you.

What took you so long?
What took you all night?
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good;
I make you feel fine.
You know, I'll never give it up this time.
Oh, no, no.

Oh, you touched my heart right from the start,
You didn't know what to say.
But, honey, I understand
When you take my hand everything's OK.

'Cos, baby, I believe reality,
It's never far away.
I've had enough, so listen, baby,
I've got something to say.

What took you so long?
What took you all night?
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good;
I make you feel fine.
You know, I'll never give it up this time.

What took you so long? (What took you so long?)
What took you all night? (What took you all night?)
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good; (I treat you so good)
I make you feel fine. (I make you feel fine)
You know, I'll never give it up this time.
Oh, no, no.

Baby, I believe in honesty
And then be strong and true.
I shouldn't have to say now, baby,
That I believe in you.

What took you so long?
What took you all night?
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good;
I make you feel fine.
You know, I'll never give it up this time.

What took you so long? (What took you so long?)
What took you all night? (What took you all night?)
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good; (I treat you so good)
I make you feel fine. (I make you feel fine)
You know, I'll never give it up this time.

What took you so long? (What took you so long?)
What took you all night? (What took you all night?)
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good; (I treat you so good)
I make you feel fine. (I make you feel fine)
You know, I'll never give it up this time.
Oh, no, no.

Take My Breath Away

If I told you how I feel about you
Would you say the same and
If I wrote it in a letter
Would you keep it or throw it away

I never thought I'd feel the way I'm feeling lately
When everything you seem to do just drives me crazy

Every waking day you take my breath away
With every word you say you take my breath away
You look at me that way, baby come what may
I hope that you'll always know how to take my breath away
How to take my breath away
You told me how you feel about me
Cos I did not know
If you said you'd fill my heart with all your loving
Til it overflowed
I don't know the way you feel but boy I'm hoping
I always used to hide a way, but now I'm open
Every waking day you take my breath away
With every word you say you take my breath away
You look at me that way, baby come what may
I hope that you'll always know how to take my breath away
How to take my breath away
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
Every waking day you take my breath away
With every word you say you take my breath away
You look at me that way, baby come what may
I hope that you'll always know how to take my breath away
How to take my breath away
(How to take my breath away)
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
(How to take my breath away)
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
Take my breath away

A World Without You

I know that you can hear the rhythm of the rain
Although we're miles apart I know you feel my pain
I try to be so strong, I try to carry on
But since you left the sun don't seem to shine
My tears are falling on the words you wrote to me
I wish that somehow they could take me where I wanna be
It seems so long ago, you held me when I cried
For now I just pretend you're by my side, oh-oh yeah
Everything that I touch turns to blue
When I'm living in a world without you
I'm going crazy baby, I am missing you
Can't imagine all I go through
When I'm living in a world without you
I'm not alone I know that you can feel it too

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

I try to watch a movie but you're all that I can see (all that I can see)
In my dreams I know I always see you constantly
But then a dream comes to an end and I'm alone
And I can't seem to let this feeling go, whoa-oh baby
Everything that I touch turns to blue
When I'm living in a world without you
I'm going crazy baby, I am missing you
Can't imagine all I go through
When I'm living in a world without you(can't live without you)
I'm not alone I know that you can feel it too

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (la la la la)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (la la la la)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

I try to be so strong, I try to carry on
But since you left the sun don't seem to shine, whoa-oh-ooh
Everything that I touch turns to blue
When I'm living in a world without you(I'm going crazy, missing you baby)
I'm going crazy baby, I am missing you
Can't imagine all I go through
When I'm living in a world without you (a world without you)
I'm not alone I know that you can feel it too

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (what can I do without you baby)
Can't imagine all I go through
When I'm living in a world without you (living without you)
I'm not alone I know that you can feel it too
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (la la la la)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (la la la la)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

I'm going crazy missing you baby
Living without you (living without you)

High On Love

Well I know that you're with me when I'm sleeping

A Girl Like Me

What you get is what you see
Let me tell you basically
This is how it's gotta be
Can't - with a girl like me
Can't change my destiny
So if you wanna get next to me
Gotta treat me faithfully
Can't - with a girl like me

Two o' clock, I'm all alone
Hear you on the telephone
Telling me another line
Said that you'd be working late
Asking me if I could wait
Run that by me one more time

Keep me hanging on the line
But you're running out of time
Might have been a fool for love, but I'm not blind

If you're looking for a play thing
Every other day thing
I am not the one for you
I'm not looking for a part time
Give me half your heart and
Tell me what you're gonna do

Look into my eyes, let me tell you one more time
I need everything, that's how it's gonna be
With a girl like me
With a girl like me

Broken rings and promises
Gotta be much more than this
I don't have to compromise
Been around enough to know
When it's time to let it go
Do I have to say goodbye

Gonna make it clear to you
Only one thing left to do
Better understand cos every word is true

If you're looking for a play thing
Every other day thing
I am not the one for you (yeah yeah)
I'm not looking for a part time
Give me half your heart and
Tell me what you're gonna do

Look into my eyes, let me tell you one more time
I need everything, that's how it's gonna be
With a girl like me (oh yeah)
With a girl like me (yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah)

Yeah yeah yeah

What you get is what you see
Let me tell you basically
This is how it's gotta be
Can't - with a girl like me (with a girl like me)

So if you wanna get next to me
Gotta treat me faithfully
Can't - with a girl like me

Gonna make it clear to you
Only one thing left to do
Better understand cos every word is true

If you're looking for a play thing
Every other day thing
I am not the one for you (yeah yeah)
I'm not looking for a part time
Give me half your heart and
Tell me what you're gonna do

Spell it O.U.T.

If I spell it O U T
Will you get the message finally
I don't wanna fight you see
But it's the end for you and me
Sorry that it had to be
But that's the reality
Do I have to spell it O U T for you to see

Dream on in your own little world
Keep thinking I'm your girl
Baby I wish you well
But boy the fact remains
My story's still the same
Hard as it is to tell

I've said it all a thousand times
Now I gotta be cruel to be kind

If I spell it O U T
Will you get the message finally
I don't wanna fight you see
But it's the end for you and me
Sorry that it had to be
But that's the reality
Do I have to spell it O U T for you to see

Oh yeah

You don't get what I say
You want it all your way
Hear what you wanna hear
So now I'm showing you
This time we're really through
The writing on the wall is clear

You'll never make me change my mind
So I'm gonna be cruel to be kind

If I spell it O U T (O U T)
Will you get the message finally
I don't wanna fight you see (I don't wanna fight, yeah yeah)
But it's the end for you and me
Sorry that it had to be (had to be)

She Was A Friend Of Mine

Ooh yeah

Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh
Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh

I trusted her with him
That's where the story begins
We talked of boys and men
They all came second then

I made a sacrifice
And trusted all her advice
There was no need to fight
Things were so simple then

One by one she broke her promises
I guess she thought that she could take my man
I just gotta let her know
His love is for me, and that's the way the story goes

She was a friend of mine
Or so I thought at the time
How could I be so blind to trust her with my man
She fooled me with her eyes
And hid behind a disguise
I've read between the lines and now I understand

Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh
Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh

She said she'd make it right
And talk to him late at night
Told me to take it slow
But little did I know

She had a master plan
I had my head in the sand
But now it's plain to see
She chose him over me

Every day she's smiling in my face
But every night she's trying to take my place
She said she'd always be right there for me
But now I can see the kind of help I just don't need

She was a friend of mine
Or so I thought at the time
How could I be so blind to trust her with my man (to trust her with my man)
She fooled me with her eyes
And hid behind a disguise
I've read between the lines and now I understand (and now I understand)

Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh
(And now I understand)
Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh
(And now I understand)
Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh
(She was a friend of mine)
Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh
(How could I be so blind)

Never thought friends could be so cruel
I never thought you could break all the rules
Now it's you who looks like a fool
Cos what goes around, comes around

Ooh-yeah

She was a friend of mine (she was a friend of mine)
Or so I thought at the time
How could I be so blind to trust her with my man (to trust her with my man)
She fooled me with her eyes
And hid behind a disguise
I've read between the lines and now I understand (and now I understand)

Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh
(Yeah-yeah-eh)
Oh-oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-eh

She was a friend of mine (she was a friend of mine)
Or so I thought at the time
How could I be so blind to trust her with my man
She fooled me with her eyes (fooled me with her eyes)
And hid behind a disguise
I've read between the lines and now I understand (now I understand)

And now I understand
Now I understand
And now I understand

What I Am

I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean
Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box
Religion is the smile on a dog
I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean, d-doo yeah

Choke me in the shallow waters
Before I get too deep

What I am is what I am
Are you what you are or what?
What I am is what I am
Are you what you are or

Oh, I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean
Philosophy is a walk on the slippery rocks
Religion is a light in the fog
I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean, d-doo yeah

Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

What I am is what I am
Are you what you are or what?
What I am is what I am
Are you what you are or what?

What I am is what I am
Are you what you are or what?
What I am is what I am
Are you what you are or what you are and

What I am is what I am
Are you what you are or what?

Don't let me get too deep
Don't let me get too deep
Don't let me get too deep
Don't let me get too deep

Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep
Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep
Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep
