WHEN WILL YOU BE MINE:

Track List


It's not what you do
It's just the way you do it
Makes me feel this way
It's not what I see
It's what I read into the looks
you've been giving me
Now, make no mistakes
I'm not sure I can take
anymore of this waiting game
If I had my way
I'd like to hear you say
You kinda feel the same way too


When will you be mine
Do I have to wait forever?
When will you be mine
Do I have to wait forever?
When will you be mine
When will you be mine


It's not what you think
but when you take a drink
I feel this invitation
There's no need to worry,
'cos I'm in no hurry
I just want - that sensation
I don't look for trouble,
sometimes that trouble comes
lookin' for me
There's one thing that I want to do
Is take you out of here with me


When will you be mine
Do I have to wait forever?
When will you be mine
Do I have to wait forever?
When will you be mine
When will you be mine


Words and Music: Gorrie/White


PLEASE DON'T FALL IN LOVE:

Track List


Please don't fall in love
leave the words unspoken
'cos if you do you know
your heart will get broken, uh-huh


Love is a plain and simple
game for fools
What makes you think
you can change all the rules
But my advice to you-
is to look around,
Don't even think twice about
this lovin' thing you've found


You talk about love as if
it's a matter of fact
Love deals the kind of hand
that's bound to bite you back
If you feel sure enough-
then that's alright
But when the doubt creeps in
you've got to let it slide


Please don't fall in love
leave the words unspoken
'cos if you do you know
your heart will get broken
Please don't fall in love
unless you're truly certain
'cos if you do you know
you're gonna be hurting


Words and Music: Ball/Gorrie


WALK ON BY

Track List

If you see me walkin'
down the street
And I start to cry
each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by
Make believe that
you don't see the tears I
Just let me grieve in private
'cause each time I see you
I break down and cry


Walk on by
Walk on by
Walk on by


I just can't get over losin' you
And so if I seem broken and blue
Walk on by, walk on by
Foolish pride
that's all that I have left
So let me hide the tears and
The sadness you gave me
When you said good-bye


Walk on by
Walk on by
Walk on by


Words and Music: Hal David and Burt Bacharach

FEEL NO FRET

Track List


My friend, my good friend
Don't you look so sad
I know that you've been cheated
That's bad - so bad
But time is too precious
Why don't you put on that smile
Forget about loneliness
If you occupy your time
then pretty soon you'll


Feel no fret -
be no weeping no wailing
Feel no fret -
be no meaning no groaning
Feel no fret -
nothing new that you're owning


My friend, my good friend
Dry your weeping eyes
Handle it with courage
If you hold your head up high
then pretty soon you'll


Feel no fret
be no weeping no wailing
Feel no fret
be no moaning no groaning
Feel no fret
nothing new that you're owning
Feel no fret


My friend, my good friend
It's an all time low
But you can see right through it
If you hang in tight
Then pretty soon you'll


Feel no fret
be no weeping and wailing
Feel no fret
be no moaning no groaning
Feel no fret
nothing new that you're owning
Feel no fret


Words and Music: Stuart/White/Gorrie & Ferrone

STOP THE RAIN

Track List

Just yesterday you slipped
away from me
without so much
as one word of good-bye
You packed the sunshine
in your big old suitcase
Now only the rain fills the sky


You were mine
but suddenly it's changed
Wish that I... could find a way
to stop the rain


I thought that everything
was going fine
But I was blind
blind as a man could be
I took for granted
what you tried hard to give
And now the rain
is all I can see


You were mine -
but that was yesterday
Wish that I... could find a way
to stop the rain


Now tell me please
do you understand
what this feeling
is all about
'Cos when you left me
you took my heart -
squeezed the sunshine out


But in time
this heart of mine will heal
the Sun will shine
and I can find a way to stop the rain


Words and Music: Gorrie/Stuart


ATLANTIC AVENUE:

Track List


Here I am strolling down
Atlantic Avenue
With the sunlight in my eyes
Here I am and there's nothing
I would rather do
When I want some peace of mind


I leave the smoke of Rio behind,
as evening starts to fly
I wanna feel the ocean breeze
where the mountains kiss the sky
Oh -Oh
So come on
down Atlantic Avenue
Let the samba take a hold of you;
'cos I know there is no place
like the Avenue
When the music gets a hold of you


Drive along to Ipanema,
there's always time to spare
Forget the troubles of the world
when they get to much to bear -
Oh-Oh
So come on -
down Atlantic Avenue
aargh
na-na na na-na
Flying down to Rio
never thought I would be
walking by the ocean here today
Pretty soon I've got to leave,
but I know my heart will stay
Oh....


Here I am
strolling down Atlantic Avenue
With sunlight in my eyes
Here I am, and there's nothing
I would rather do
When I want some peace of mind
So come on -
down Atlantic Avenue
Let the samba take a hold of you
'cos I know there is no place
like the Avenue
When the music gets a hold of you


Words and Music: Gorrie/White



ACE OF HEARTS:

Track List


Just to be with you now
is one thing I can't imagine
'Cos the part you play today
is the one that was missing
And from where I stand right now
I can see - so clearly
that with every passing day
I want more of this magic


You're the ace of hearts
number one in everything
that comes to mind
I think about it all the time
how you won my heart - easy,
Easy was the game you played -
Easy 'cos you had it made


So you see what you have done
and there's no way to undo it
I have only just begun
to understand it
Now on thing is clear to me
there is love and there is real love
and the only way to know
is feel what I'm feeling


You're the ace of hearts
number one in everything
that comes to mind
I think about it all the time
how you won my heart - easy
Easy was the game you played -
Easy 'cos you had it made


Words and Music: Gorrie/Stuart

TOO LATE TO CRY

Track List

It's too late to cry-
too late for wondering why,
You got to dry your eyes -
Baby, it's too late to cry


You always told me
It was no good, no good
I never treated you the way
that I ought to do
I was an easy target -
too blind to see my weakness
I did you wrong, I know
But you couldn't really see my side
I know you didn't understand


Now it's too late to cry-
too late for wondering why
You got to dry your eyes,
Baby, it's too late to cry


We had those good times
some that were so bad, so bad
We couldn't hold what we had
at the start
It's too late to cry,
the feeling is gone now, gone now
- gets so bad sometimes
It's hard to stop from breaking down
And you wonder if you really tried


Now it's too late to cry-
too late for wondering why
Yes it's too late to cry-
wondering just what passed you by
Baby, it's too late to cry-
gotta dry your eyes


Words and Music: Stuart


FIRE BURNING

Track List

Keep the fire burning
'til I get back home to you
I'll keep the wheels turning...


When I'm away from you, baby
I'm running on half my speed
so I've got to know
at the end of the line
you will be waiting for me


Keep the fire burning

'til I get back home to you

I'll keep the wheels turning....


When I'm away from you
the road may be long and tough
but what I want you to do-
I guess you know it too-
is keep the flame hot enough


Keep the fire burning
'til I get back home to you
I'll keep the wheels turning....


Words and Music: Gorrie/White
