READ MY MIND!




Everything That You Want

(Randy Sharp, Jack Weslet Routh) In the beginning The nights were long Under the moonlight I could do no wrong You told me I was everything you wanted me to be Then summer was over And the nights grew cold You got restless And hard to hold I tried to be Everything you wanted me to be Now you keep staring At that open door You got what you wanted And you still want more Well look at me I'm everything you wanted me to be Chorus: Well if I don't keep you satisfied You can't say that I haven't tried And if I'm not what you want by now For the life of me I can't see how I'll ever be Everything that you want me to be In the beginning The nights were long Under the moonlight I could do no wrong Remember me? I was everything you wanted me to be

Read My Mind

(Keith Thomas, Melissa Coleman, Todd Moore) A penny for my thoughts you say You want to know what I could be thinking But as I speak the music starts to play And the words just somehow slip away Chorus: Read my mind It will tell you that I love you and You're all I ever wanted in a man You'd see how I feel What my head won't let my heart reveal If only you could read my mind One look from you and look at me I'm trembling like a little girl I tell myself if I can just believe Any day now you'll fall in love with me Repeat Chorus Tell me if you feel the same way I do And tell me that I'm not mistakenly taken with you You're all I ever wanted in a man You see, all I need is everything you are to me If you could somehow read my mind You would see what I can't seem to say If only you could, if you would read my mind Read my mind

I Won't Stand In Line

(Randy Sharp, Steve Diamond) You told me I was one in a million Everything that you wanted in this world When every time I turn around I hear tell you paint the town With one of those million other girls Oh, whatcha do to me is not the question I swear I felt the magic from the start I see the promise of a legendary love But I am not about to share your heart Chorus: I'd do almost anything just to make you mine But I won't stand in line I won't stand in line waiting for your call I won't take a number, just to take a fall So make up your mind I won't stand in line How long do you think that you can handle Keeping all those hearts up in the air Don't you know in time you're bound to stumble And when that day comes it won't be my affair

I Wish That I Could Tell You

(Anthony Jerome Martin, Van Stephenson, Reese Wilson) How do you tell someone you're letting go I wish that I could tell you But you're asking me things that I don't know I wish that I could tell you The words that I would say Sound as empty as the way you feel inside While the silence in between Tells me everything that you deny I don't know how to help you I wish that I could tell you How to tell me goodbye I don't know how you leave it all behind I wish that I could tell you Is it true a heart heals itself with time I wish that I could tell you How do you choose Do you hurt 'em with the truth or with a lie Where do you go to find the courage You know I could never find I don't know how to help you I wish that I could tell you How to tell me goodbye Where do you turn, where do you go When you've finally reached the end of the road How do you say it I just don't know When it comes to leaving you're on your own How do you tell someone you're letting go I wish that I could tell you I wish that I could tell you

She Thinks His Name Was John

(Sandy Knox, Steve Rosen) She can account for all of the men in her past Where they are now, who they married, how many kids they have She knew their backgrounds, family and friends A few she even talks to now and then But there is one she can't put her finger on There is one who never leaves her thoughts And she thinks his name was John A chance meeting, a party a few years back Broad shoulders and blue eyes, his hair was so black He was a friend of a friend you could say She let his smile just sweep her away And in her heart she knew it was wrong But too much wine and she left his bed at dawn And she thinks his name was John Now each day is one day that's left in her life She won't know love, have a marriage or sing lullabies She lays all alone and cries herself to sleep 'Cause she let a stranger kill her hopes and her dreams And all her friends say what a pity what a loss And in the end when she was barely hanging on All she could say is she thinks his name was John

Why Haven't I Heard From You

(Sandy Knox, T.W. Hale) Back in 1876 an ol' boy named Bell Invented a contraption that we know so well By the 1950's they were in everybody's home That crazy little thing they call the telephone Now there's one on every corner, in the back of every bar You can get one in your briefcase, on a plane or in your car Chorus: So tell me why, haven't I, heard from you Tell me why, haven't I heard from you Darlin', honey, what is your excuse Why haven't I heard from you There's no problem gettin' to me Baby you can dial direct I got call forwarding, call waiting You can even call collect The service man he told me that my phone was workin' fine And I've come to the conclusion the trouble isn't with my line I'm sure the operator will be glad to put you thru So dial zero for assistance if this all confuses you Repeat Chorus There better been a flood, a landslide of mud A fire that bruns up the wires And thunder so loud with a black funnel cloud A natural disaster I know nothin' about

And Still

(Liz Heingber, Tommy Lee James) Thousands of people live in this town And I had to run into him When I saw him there on that busy street Those feelings came back again There was nowhere to run, nowhere to hide He walked up to me, looked in my eyes Chorus: And still The world stood still I couldn't move And all I could feel Was this aching in my heart Saying I loved him still He said how've you been It's great to see you again You're really a sight for sore eyes I said, I can't complain I'm doing fine We talked as the people rushed by We laughed about old times and all we went through That's when he hugged me and said I've missed you That's when she walked up to him He said, this is my wife I gave my best smile But I was dying inside He said we gotta go now It's getting late It was so good to see you Then they walked away

The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter

(Mark D. Sander, Kim Williams, Ed Hill) She came in lookin' good and lookin' around She's checkin' out every man in the room right now Don't go tellin' her about right or wrong She's been alone way too long Chorus: The heart is a lonely hunter With only one desire To find some lastin' comfort In the arms of a lover's fire Driven by a desperate hunger To the dark of the neon light The heart is a lonely hunter When there's no sign of love in sight She hears him say "Hey, can I buy you a drink?" And sees the pale white circle where he wears his ring She knows he's dealin' her a dangerous hand The consequences of a one night stand but Repeat Chorus From somewhere deep inside she tells him no Before she starts to cry she turns to go

I Wouldn't Wanna Be You

(Randy Sharp, Jeff Silbar) You don't have a clue You're so far gone He's got you dancin' to A siren's song I wouldn't wanna be you right now I wouldn't wanna be I wouldn't wanna be you right now I wouldn't wanna be, I wouldn't wanna be You're not the first he's drawn To his flame He means to do you wrong He has no shame I wouldn't wanna be you right now I wouldn't wanna be I wouldn't wanna be you right now I wouldn't wanna be, I wouldn't wanna be you It's easy to understand How you could fall so hard You're not the only one He's taken in and torn apart Won't say I told you so But I'm afraid it's true You're about to go What I went through I wouldn't wanna be you right now I wouldn't wanna be I wouldn't wanna be you right now I wouldn't wanna be, I wouldn't wanna be you

Till You Love Me

(Bob DiPiero, Gary Burr) I sent you roses, I warned you I would Do all that I could to show you the way that I feel Please, don't say I'm wasting my time I've got nothin' but time so I'll do all that I can to catch That ghost of a chance Chorus: The sunlight, the moonlight Are beyond my control And there are stars in the heavens That I'll never hold But if dreams give you power Then I'm strong enough to offer my heart And never give up till you love me Till you love me I looked in your eyes, so bright and so blue And that's when I knew that you could be mine If good things come to those who will wait Well, I guess I can wait if that's what I have to do Oh, it's worth it for you
