SOUL MINE:

Track List

Working in a Soul Mine
Working in a Soul Mine
Working in a Soul Mine
Working in a Soul Mine
You make me work, just love to see me sweat
The hotter baby, the rougher that it gets
Your'e a heart 's stopper, you must be made of stone
Sometimes I swear I wish, you'd leave me alone
It's like working in a Soul Mine
I just can't work no harder
It's like working in a Soul Mine
Till the day is done
Working in a Soul Mine
I just can't work no harder
Working in a Soul Mine when can I have some fun
Yeah, you make it seem, you're having fun when I hurt
Sometimes I think you just love to see me hurt
I'm like a dog babe, digging in the dirt
Sometimes I think you don't know what you're doing to me
Back on my knees, got a mind to set me free
It's like working in a Soul Mine
Just can't work no harder
It's like working in a Soul Mine
Till the day is done
Working in a Soul Mine
I just can't work no harder
Working in a Soul Mine, when can I have some fun
Working in a Soul Mine
Working in a Soul Mine
Believe me baby, I don't wanna be this way
You bring me trouble girl, what more can I say
Give me soul, blood and roll my fingers to the bone
Give me back my soul babe, I wanna take my spirit home
Now I'm working in a Soul Mine
Just can't work no harder
It's like working in a Soul Mine
Till the day is done
Working in a Soul Mine
I just can't work no harder
Working in a Soul Mine, gotta have some fun
It's like working in a Soul Mine
Just can't work no harder
It's like working in a Soul Mine
Till the day is done
Working in a Soul Mine
I just can't work no harder

BACK TO BASICS:

Track List

Well it's alright, it's alright
Living hard, living fast in the city
There's got to be a way to make it slow down
Doing what we do, is human nature
That's the way it goes
It gets so hard, tyring to make a living
We've got to give the love back to our brothers
Trying to find some time, for one another
So we know it's for real
I wanna get Back to Basics
I wanna get back with you
Back to Basics, like we use to do
I wanna get Back to Basics, just take it slow
Back to Basics, and, just let it go (let it go)
You know at times you get a little crazy
Running round, looking for some direction
On the streets, nothings very simple
But I know it's for real
I wanna get Back to Basics
I wanna get back with you
Back to Basics, like we use to do
I wanna get back to Basics, just take it slow
Back to Basics, aah, just let it go (let it go)
Nothing matters but, good old fashioned love
Let's just face it, all it takes is basic love
I wanna get Back to Basics
I wanna get back with you
Back to Basics, like we use to do
I wanna get back to Basics, just take it slow
Back to Basics, aah, just let it go (let it go)
I wanna get Back to Basics, wanna get back to love
I wanna get Back to Basics, wanna get back to love
I wanna get Back to Basics, I wanna get bac with you
I wanna get Back to Basics, baby like we use to do
I wanna get Back to Basics

LIVING ON BORROWED TIME:

Track List


LIVING ON BORROWED TIME

Girl, I can't believe it comes to this already
We turned back the hands of time
Always tried to give you love and be real steady
But something else is on your mind
Because we're Livin' on borrowed time
Livin' on borrowed time with you
Livin' on borrowed time
aah,aah, you know we're
Livin' on borrowed time
Livin' on borrowed time - aah, aah
The things you do, the words you say, to keep me guessing
But I just can't give up the fight, no
Sometimes you have to lose a lot to learn a lesson
It's not to late to so what's right...an' now we're
Livin' on borrowed time with you
Livin' on borrowed time
aah,aah, you know we're
Livin' on borrowed time
Livin' on borrowed time - aah, aah




EVERY BEAT OF MY HEART:

Track List

Each day goes by, doing all the simple things I must
It takes most all that I have, waiting only for the nights
We'll be together, darling
Who knows what little time, we have baby
Let's make each minute seem, like it could be our last one alive
Hold me real close, till I know you can feel every beat of my heart
Turn out the light, let me stay here tonight
Keeping just as we are
Lying beside you, alone in the dark
Brings me closer to you, darling with every beat of my heart
As daylight comes, the morning steals the shadows from your face
Soon I'll be far on my way, taking along this memory
With me wherever I go, darling
Whatever little time we share, baby
There's not a minute, I don't realise just how much I care
Hold me real close, till I know you can feel every beat of my heart
Turn out the light, let me stay here tonight
Keeping just as we are
Lying beside you, alone in the dark
Brings me closer to you, darling with every beat of my heart
Closer to you darling, with every beat of my heart
Lying beside you, alone in the dark
Brings me closer to you, darling with every beat of my heart
Hold me real close, till I know you can feel every beat of my heart
Turn out the light, let me stay here tonight
Keeping just as we are
Lying beside you, alone in the dark
Brings me closer to you, darling with every beat of my heart

WHEN WE GET DOWN TO IT:

Track List

Funny how, I was there at the begining
But you never heard my cry
Reaching out to the ones, who were not giving
They were never on your side
When we get down to it
You were meant for me
When we get proud to it babe
You're gonna want the world to see
When we get down to it
Nothing else but love will do
When we get round to it babe
I wanna be down, get down with you girl
Ooh deep down with you
When we get round to it
Can't you see all the chances we've been missing
All the nights that passed us by, baby
Now we're alone, your lips are mine for kissing
No time to wrestle with your pride
When we get down to it
You were meant for me
When we get proud to it babe
You're gonna want the world to see
When we get down to it
Nothing else but love will do
When we get proud to it babe
I want to get down, get down with you girl
Oh baby,
Oh, it's no ordinary thing that we share
What you give to me, girl
Oh, there's no reason, we should try to hide it
Take love as you find it, ooh
When we get down to it, oh darling
You were meant for me
When we get proud to it, babe
I want the whole wide world to see
When we get round to it
Nothing but love will do
When we get round to it, baby
I want to be down with you
When we get down to it

OH, MACEO:

Track List

Instrumental (almost!)
















DO YA REALLY:

Track List

Baby now, why don't you let me stop

Get on up till you drop, I won't make it any secrets
She said "Let it ou t, and lay it next to mine"
Do ya really wanna have fun
Come and funk with me baby
Do ya really wanna get high by yourself
Do ya really wanna have fun, get a jump on it baby
Don't you really wanna just try something else
Move me, do me up, this girl's got juice
She don't know what she's doing to me
My degrees, I believe that this could lead to love
Especially the way she said to me
Do ya really wanna have fun
Come and funk with me baby
Do ya really wanna get high by yourself
Do ya really wanna have fun, get a jump on it baby
Don't you really wanna just try something else
Whatever else you might have shajen
You'll be welcome baby, right there by my side
Whatever hearts you might be breaking now baby
My arms are always open wide

I WANNA BE LOVED:

Track List

(Ooh yeah, aah,ooh yeah,aah aah aah, yeah)
What exactly are you thinking
Let me begin to ease your mind
Whatever the devil pays, for left handed ways
You got to know I'm dealing for my life
Ooh yeah, Save your love for a minute
Keep all your thoughts on the line
I couldn't begin to live for another day
I wouldn't die for the chance to make you mine
I wanna be loved, ooh yeah
I wanna be, wanna be loved by you
Ooh, I wanna be loved, ooh darling
I wanna be loved by you, oh yeah
All the habits of a lifetime
I've been trying hard to make them history
I'm thinking if we got to smooth out the rough spots baby
Say girl "You'd get the best of me"
I wanna be loved, ooh yeah
I wanna be, wanna be loved by you
Ooh, I wanna be loved, ooh darling
I wanna be loved by you, oh yeah
Girl if you're with me
You've got to forgive all my past
I wanna be loved....

NO EASY WAY TO SAY GOODBYE:

Track List

I always thought I'd have the answers
Nothing would get in my way
I always thought we would last forever
till my love changed
And all the things that were promised
I know I let you slip away
This is the hardest thing I have to say
Even if I find the words
Find the way, I just can't come up with one more lie Even if we tell ourselves it's over
There's no easy way to say goodbye
Looking for a way to justify it
But coming up short fo things to say
I always thought we would stay together
Till my love changed
Maybe if I did you different
Maybe you'd still be in my life
But we both know that I didn't do you right
No, even if I find the words, and find the way
I just can't come up with one more lie
and even if we tell ourselves it's over
There's no easy way to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye
Ooh baby, ooh even if I (find the words), find the way
I just can't come up with one more lie
Even if (we tell ourselves it's over) there's no easy way to say goodbye
I wanna be loved, ooh yeah
I wanna be, wanna be loved by you
Ooh, I wanna be loved, ooh darling
I wanna be loved by you, oh yeah

LOVE IS THE BOTTOM LINE:

Track List

"My Appeal To You"
I give you all the love, the love you need
And you know that's hard to find
I give you everything, your heart desires if it gives you peace of mind
So you say you don't believe
Love is ever guaranteed, that's a feeling I don't buy
Would it make a difference, won't you give my love a chance
All you got to do is try
You say that love don't mean a thing
When you've got money, you got everything
But that's a song that's out of time
You know that love is the botom line
It's the bottom line
Now I've been working day and night
What you want don't come for free
But that's the price I pay for loving you
And it really doesn't matter to me

WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD:

Track List

You said love was just a
fantasy- nothing you need
in your life
That little weakness in
humanity you never
thought you would try
In my experience you must
agree what all the world's
tryin' to find
Only looking for that special
someone to turn the water
to wine

So wake up, look around
time is slippin' through our
fingers so fast
If it's love that you've found
welcome to the real world
at last

Could it be you've had
a change of heart even if it's
hard to admit
Every day you're getting
closer to me, why must
you try to resist

So wake up, look around
time is slippin' through our
fingers so fast
If it's love that you've found
welcome to the real world
at last

Don't get caught up in the
things you say
Let your heart show the
way, baby

WINDOW TO YOUR SOUL

Track List

Did you ever stop to
wonder
What it's like to be on the
other side
Looking in on all the things
you try to hide
You don't ever sell yourself
short, that ain't fair
Whatever else you take for
granted
Don't ever sell yourself
short, that ain't fair
I can turn around the mirror
in your heart
You'll come to know the
one who really cares

Tryin' to open a window to
your soul
Getting closer but you
won't let go

There's so much more you
have to offer me
It's like a stream that's
running deep under the
ground
If digging deeper helps me
bring it to the light
You'll be glad I was around

Tryin' to open a window to
your soul
Getting closer but you
won't let go
Tryin' to open a window to
your soul
Don't try to fight it baby,
don't say no

Don't say no baby use
denying I hold the key
Just let go, baby, no use in
crying when you can lean
on me....

They say love can last
forever
That means we take the
bad, not only the good
Even if sometimes you
have a frightened heart
At least you know you'll be
understood

Tryin' to open a window to
your soul...etc.

YOU SHOULDA' KNOWN:(Japanese C.D. only)

Track List

Heard you doubt my love
But you know me- you
should know better
I belong to you - an' only
you
Girl you got to know if it's
up to me we'll be together
for ever and ever - ooh
When another girl even
looks my way
I let her know that she best
be on her way
Don't want to spend my
time, don't want to give my
love to no - one but you

Girl you shoulda' known I'll
never let you down
Your heart is my home
you're always on my mind
Girl you shoulda' known
this love is on solid ground
You shoulda' known by the
look in my eye
You shoulda' known
Shoulda' known baby (2x)

How could you doubt my
love, you know me - you
should know better
Darlin I'd be a fool to lose
your trust
Ain't nothin' in my life, in
this whole world I've come
to treasure
the way I do you
So any time that you feel
unsure Look in my eyes that's
where you'll find the truth
I wanna fill you up with all
the love I feel
an' take your worries away

Girl you shoulda' known I'll
never let you down
Your heart is my home
you're always on my mind
Girl you shoulda' known this
love is on solid ground
You shoulda' known by the
look in my eye

And when I met you I got a
feelin' that we meant to be
-that you were sent just for
me
And I'm holding on to what
I've found in you.......

Shoulda' known, shoulda'
known by now...... etc.
