The story of us is a sad cautionary tale It's a story of love with a painful sting in the tail We'd never met in our lives But I'm going to have to survive The story of us The story of us is a short but fleeting affair A story of love that caught me so unprepared We'd never met in our lives But somehow I'll have to survive The story of us

Here's a song for you Words of love against a tune Here's my song for you To tell you how much I love you Here's a song for you I hope we'll never be apart Here's my song for you To show how much I want you Here's a song for you So many happy days ahead Here's my song for you To let you know that I love you Here's my song for you Here's my song for you This is my song for you Here's a song for you

Hold on to love Before you know it, it will be gone Those days went by Before I knew it I was on my own I cannot face another day without your love Without your love Nothing on earth could make you stay And now I'm lost I am so lost The months go by Before you know it a year has gone I still question why Looking for answers that will not come I cannot live another day without your love Without your love You're here, you've gone, you got away Now I'm alone I'm so alone You had time to say What you wanted to say What I could not convey But can you hear me now? Hold on to love Before you know it, it will have gone I'll hold onto love Before I know it you will be gone Hold onto love Before you know it

Stranger 04:16
Every time I drive you home It feels like I am on my own I feel like a stranger in your arms You tell me everything's okay And assure me that nothing has changed Yet I feel like a stranger in your arms Every time I hold you close It feels as if I am alone Is there something that I need to know? 'Cause I've been finding That I feel like a stranger in your arms You say that there is nothing wrong Though I sense that something's going on As I feel like a stranger in your arms It's clear to me you've lost your heart You act as if you're playing a part I feel like a stranger in your arms Every time I hold you close I sense you'd rather be alone Is there something that I need to know? 'Cause I've been finding That I feel like a stranger in your arms

Mistakes 06:37
Once I gave myself a mountain peak to climb All I ever wanted was love In you I met someone I thought would be just fine All I ever wanted was time But this is the last chance This my last chance All I ever did was treat you well and kind All I ever wanted was time But something changed your way You left me high and dry Hanging on to questions un-replied But this is the last chance This my last chance We all make mistakes As anyone who's ever loved will tell you But it's not good enough for you This is my last chance This is my last chance We all make mistakes As anyone who's ever loved will tell you But it's not good enough for you We all make mistakes As anyone who's ever loved would do

Hey, don't say it's over Don't say it's over, we've had our time Hey, don't say it's over Don't say it's over, we're past our prime Hey, does it all mean nothing? We must mean something We've lost our way Hey, don't say it's over Don't say it's over At least not today I need you, I want you, I beg you don't go I need you, I want you, I love you, don't go Don't say it's over

The world can live without us It's left here as it found us And all we shared There's no 'us' from tomorrow We've returned the love we borrowed And all we shared Everything could turn out fine Just give yourself some time We tried but I hope that you can be happy now The world will turn without us We never finished what we started With all we shared The time had come to move on So sad what we have become From all we shared Everything may turn out fine I'll allow myself some time We tried but I hope that I can be happy now Everything should turn out fine All I have is too much time We tried, do you think we both can be happy now?

There comes a time to leave behind all that you've known Maybe you're right about me but I'm sure I've grown I'm not saying that I want you I'm not saying I still want you I tried to read your letter and I'm sure you know But maybe you're right about me and you had to go I'm not saying that l love you I'm not saying that I care For always forever You said you'd love me For always forever It's been so hard to understand all that has gone But someday I'll realise that you weren't the one I'm not saying I still love you I'm not saying I still care For always forever You said you'd love me For always forever I have to know if you really cared I've got to know did you really care? I need to know that you really cared For always forever You said you'd love me For always forever

Still thinking about her, a year has come and gone Still thinking about her, once my heart was overflowing Still thinking about her, and how we lost our way Still thinking about her, because my mind's on yesterday It's all gone, it's all done, it's over Still thinking about her, the months have come and gone Still thinking about her, once my love was overflowing Still thinking about her, and how everything went wrong Still thinking about her, I know it's been far too long It's all gone, it's all done, it's over I'm still thinking about her

Long Lost 03:26
Where have they gone? Those days, they just disappeared You can't hide the way you feel So sorry it ended this way You rode off into the sunset Whilst rain clouds got in my way You can't help the way that you feel I'm sad it turned out this way From the depths to the heavens From the peaks to the troughs I had a feeling I was settled Now I'm feeling I'm lost Where have you gone? You somehow faded away I can't help the way I feel Still sorry we ended this way Some day I'll emerge from the darkness And the hurt will no longer remain I can't hide the way I feel So sorry it finished this way From the past to the present From the start to the stop I had a feeling I was settled Now I've a feeling I'm lost From the depths to the heavens From the highs to the drop Had a feeling I was settled Now I'm feeling I'm lost It's a feeling I've lost I've a feeling I'm lost
11.
History 01:47
I met a girl Before too long we were so in love She gave her trust and in return I gave everything I thought, "It's fate, we're meant to be" What I was longing for She was everything I'd ever dreamed We had chemistry But one day things changed I don't know why 'Cause we'd been so in love Maybe it didn't feel right Not what you thought you were looking for All that's left to me are photographs and sweet memories All that's left of love are songs to sing of our history I met a girl but now she's gone
12.
Limits 04:09
For so long I've been yearning for the day But lately, all I do is hide away I know my limits I just want someone to hold I know my limits I just need someone to hold Maybe, I can find somebody new But always when chances come I back away I know my limits I just want someone to hold I know my limits I just need someone to hold
13.
I had a vision here today I saw an angel come my way The flawless beauty of her face In sunlight A simple promise is what I crave A show of love, an act of faith Will she be the one to save me from this life Here she comes, I try so hard to find the words I pray for once and wonder if she'll get involved I wonder if she'll get involved Take a message from this man She brings a joy that life demands I hope I figure in her plans And in her life A new religion comes from me Love may be blind but I can see That someone's looking out for me In my life Here it comes, the words fall out then hit the ground She smiles and says "Unfortunately I'm involved" I can win
14.
Hold On 02:48
On the road that we've been down There's a place where I'll be found Don't say a word or make a sound Hear me now But I'll wait until I'm fine I know there'll be a better time Faith and hope must always shine Hear me out Hold on to your heart Don't let the fire burn out Hold on to your heart And you will find me, you will find me Hold on to your heart Don't let the fire burn out Hold on to your heart And you will find me, you will find me Somewhere
15.
Hope 05:35
The last time I was here in this town Nothing was going my way I somehow survived through it all My outlook is brighter today I once had my head in the clouds But I just don't know about us now I'm happy here ever after Hope The feeling you get when you part Broken hearted and grey At last I emerged from the dark I know it is better this way I once let my head rule my heart Well I just don't know about it now So happy here ever after Hope
