Track Name: I've Got You Under My Skin
I'VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN
I HAVE GOT YOU DEEP IN THE HEART OF ME
SO DEEP IN MY HEART, YOU'RE REALLY A PART OF ME
I'VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN
I HAVE TRIED SO, NOT TO GIVE IN
I'VE SAID TO MYSELF THIS AFFAIR WILL NEVER GO SO WELL
BUT WHY SHOULD I TRY TO RESIST
WHEN DARLING I KNOW SO WELL
THAT I'VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN
I WOULD SACRIFICE ANYTHING COME WHAT MIGHT
FOR THE SAKE OF HAVING YOU NEAR
IN SPITE OF THE WARNING VOICE THAT COMES
IN THE NIGHT AND REPEATS AND REPEATS IN MY EAR
DON'T YOU KNOW LITTLE GIRL YOU NEVER CAN WIN
USE YOUR MENTALITY, WAKE RIGHT UP TO REALITY
CAUSE EACH TIME I DO,
JUST THE THOUGHT OF YOU
MAKES ME STOP BEFORE I BEGIN
CAUSE I'VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN
Track Name: Day By Day
I'VE BEEN SEARCHIN' FOR SO LONG
PRAYIN' THAT I'M WRONG
GOD PUT NO WOMAN HERE FOR ME
ABOUT THE TIME I LET 'EM IN QUESTIONING BEGINS
ANOTHER BROKEN HEARTED FRIEND
THEY SAY I DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO FALL IN LOVE
GIVE ME SOME ROOM THIS AIN'T ENOUGH
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY DAY BY DAY
AND THEN YOU OPENED UP MY DOOR NEVER FELT SO SURE
OF ANY ONE THING IN MY LIFE
A LOVELY HAND TO FIT MY GLOVE
SULTRY FLAME TO LIGHT MY STOVE
BUT NOW YOU'RE TELLlN' ME SLOW DOWN
SAY YOU DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO FALL IN LOVE
GOTTA GIVE YOU SOME ROOM THIS AIN'T ENOUGH
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY DAY BY DAY
DAY BY DAY DAY BY DAY
SAY IT'S ALL RIGHT DON'T YOU CRY
TAKE IT DAY BY

I GUESS IT ONLY GOES TO SHOW
DONT COUNT YOUR CHICKENS' TILL YOU KNOW
EVERY DETAIL OF THE HEART CAUSE LOVES A WAITING GAME
A MINDBENDING MATING GAME YOU CAN RUN OUT OF GAS
BEFORE YOU START
NOBODY REALLY KNOWS IF THEIR HEART'S GONNA FALL IN LOVE
WE JUST BEG BORROW AND STEAL TO FEEL THE LOVE
TAKE IT DAY BY
DAY DAY BY DAY
WE TAKE IT DAY BY DAY YEA YEA OOH YEA
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY
Track Name: I Never Told You
SO MANY THINGS I SHOULD HAVE SAID I NEVER TOLD YOU
I KEPT THEM LOCKED INSIDE MY HEAD I NEVER TOLD YOU
WHEN YOU WERE HERE I NEVER LET YOU KNOW
I'D DIE BEFORE I LET YOU GO
I GUESS MY FIRST MISTAKE WAS THINKING YOU KNEW
I LOVED YOUR KISS I LOVED YOUR TOUCH
I LOVED TO HOLD YOU
I THOUGHT MY KISS COULD SAY SO MUCH
I NEVER TOLD YOU
AND NOW YOU'RE GONE AND EVERY SOUL I SEE
MUST HEAR HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME
IT'S EASY NOW AT LAST I'M LEARNING HOW
TO SAY WHAT I NEVER TOLD YOU
Track Name: How Insensitive
HOW INSENSITIVE
I MUST HAVE SEEMED
WHEN SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE LOVED ME
HOW UNMOVED AND COLD
I MUST HAVE SEEMED
WHEN SHE TOLD ME SO SINCERELY
WHY SHE MUST HAVE ASKED
DID I JUST TURN AND STARE IN ICY SILENCE
WHAT WAS I TO SAY
WHAT CAN YOU SAY
WHEN A LOVE AFFAIR IS OVER
NOW SHE'S GONE AWAY
AND I'M ALONE
WITH A MEMORY OF HER LAST LOOK
VAGUE SHE'S DRAWN AND SAD
I SEE IT STILL
ALL HER HEARTBREAK IN THAT LAST LOOK
HOW SHE MUST HAVE ASKED
COULD I JUST TURN AND STARE IN ICY SILENCE
WHAT WAS I TO DO
WHAT CAN ONE DO
WHEN A LOVE AFFAIR IS OVER
OVER
Track Name: Lush Life L.A.
USED TO VISIT ALL THE VERY GAY PLACES
THOSE COME WHAT MAY PLACES
WHERE ONE RELAXES ON THE AXIS OF THE WHEEL OF LIFE
TO GET THE FEEL OF LIFE FROM JAZZ AND COCKTAILS
THE GIRLS I KNEW HAD SAD AND SULLEN GRAY FACES
WITH DISTENGUE TRACES THAT USED TO BE THERE
YOU COULD SEE WHERE
THEY'D BEEN WASHED AWAY BY TOO MANY THROUGH
THE DAY TWELVE O'CLOCKTAILS
THEN YOU CAME ALONG WITH YOUR SIREN'S SONG
TO TEMPT ME TO MADNESS
I THOUGHT FOR A WHILE THAT YOUR POINGENT SMILE
WAS TINGED WITH THE SADNESS OF A GREAT LOVE
FOR ME
AH YES I WAS WRONG AGAIN I WAS WRONG
LIFE IS LONELY AGAIN AND ONLY LAST YEAR
EVERYTHING SEEMED SO SURE NOW LIFE'S AWFUL AGAIN
A TROUGH FULL OF HEARTS COULD ONLY BE A BORE
A WEEK IN PARIS WILL EASE THE BITE OF IT
ALL I CARE IS TO SMILE IN SPITE OF IT
I'LL FORGET YOU I WILL AND YET YOU ARE
STILL BURNING INSIDE MY BRAIN
ROMANCE IS MUSH STIFLING THOSE WHO STRIVE
I'LL LIVE A LUSH
LIFE IN SOME SMALL DIVE AND THERE
I'LL BE WHILE I ROT WITH THE REST
OF THOSE WHOSE LIVES ARE LONELY TOO
Track Name: Being Alive
I SOMEBODY HOLD ME TOO CLOSE
SOMEBODY HURT ME TOO DEEP
SOMEBODY SIT IN MY CHAIR
AND RUIN MY SLEEP
AND MAKE ME AWARE OF BEING ALIVE, BEING ALIVE
SOMEBODY NEED ME TOO MUCH
SOMEBODY KNOW ME TOO WELL
SOMEBODY PULL ME UP SHORT
AND PUT ME THROUGH HELL
AND GIVE ME SUPPORT FOR BEING ALIVE-BEING ALIVE
MAKE ME ALIVE, MAKE ME CONFUSED
MOCK ME WITH PRAISE, LET ME BE USED
VARY MY DAYS, CAUSE ALONE IS ALONE, NOT ALIVE
SOMEBODY HOLD ME TOO CLOSE
SOMEBODY FORCE ME TO CARE
SOMEBODY MAKE ME COME THROUGH
I'LL ALWAYS BE THERE
AS FRIGHTENED AS YOU OF BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE, BEING ALIVE!
SOMEBODY CROWD ME WITH LOVE
SOMEBODY FORCE ME TO CARE
SOMEBODY MAKE ME COME THROUGH
I'LL ALWAYS BE THERE
AS FRIGHTENED AS YOU TO HELP US SURVIVE,
BEING ALIVE, CAUSE ALONE IS ALONE
NOT ALIVE!
Track Name: You Don't Know What Love Is
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
UNTIL YOU LEARN THE MEANING OF THE BLUES
UNTIL YOU'VE LOST A LOVE YOU HAD TO LOSE
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
YOU DON'T KNOW HOW LIPS HURTS
UNTIL YOU'VE KISSED AND HAD TO PAY THE COST
UNTIL YOU'VE FLIPPED YOUR HEART AND YOU HAVE LOST
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
DO YOU KNOW HOW A LOST HEARTS FEARS
THE THOUGHT OF REMINISCING
HOW LIPS THEY TASTE THE TEARS
LOSE THEIR TASTE FOR KISSING
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW HOW HEARTS BURN
FOR LOVE THAT CANNOT LIVE YET NEVER DIES
UNTIL YOU'VE FACED EACH DAWN WITH SLEEPLESS EYES
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
DO YOU KNOW HOW A LOST HEARTS FEARS
THE THOUGHT OF REMINISCING
HOW LIPS THEY TASTE OF TEARS
LOSE THEIR TASTE FOR KISSING
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW HOW HEARTS BURN
FOR LOVE THAT CANNOT LIVE BUT NEVER DIES
UNTIL YOU'VE FACED EACH DAWN WITH SLEEPLESS EYES
YOU DON'T KNOW I DON'T THINK YOU'LL EVER KNOW
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
Track Name: Stop Chasin' My Heart Around
SWEET, SWEET THING IN THE CORNER
SHE GOT LOVE ON HER MIND
GUESS I'M FATALLY ATTRACTED TO THE DANGEROUS KIND
UNCHAIN MY HEART THEY UNDRESS MY MIND
I NEVER KNOW WHAT HITS ME I'M SUPPOSED
TO BE A MAN IN CONTROL
THE DETAILS SEEM TO ESCAPE ME
JUST LET ME WALK ON BY DO A SOLID FOR MY SOUL
AND STOP CHASIN' MY HEART AROUND TONIGHT
STOP CHASIN' MY HEART AROUND
DON'T ASK MY HEART TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE
LlVIN' LARGE IN THE CITY
BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE ALL AROUND
ANGEL EYES RAKE ACROSS MY FACE I LOSE ALL CONTROL
I'M JUST A ZOMBIE NOW
STOP CHASIN' MY HEART AROUND TONIGHT
STOP CHASIN' MY HEART AROUND
DON'T ASK MY HEART TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE
HIDE YOUR HEART AWAY SHE SPEAKS AND YOU OBEY
YOUR FEET THEY'RE MADE OF CLAY
HIDE YOUR HEART AWAY
AW THERE'S NO REASON TO FIGHT IT NOW
THING'S GONNA TURN OUT THE WAY THEY WILL
GUESS I'LL JUST LAY BACK ENJOY THE RIDE
'CAUSE I'M HIPNOTIZED COME ON
AND MOVE IN FOR THE KILL
STOP CHASIN' MY HEART AROUND TONIGHT
STOP CHASIN' MY HEART AROUND TONIGHT
STOP CHASIN' MY HEART AROUND THRASHIN' MY HEART
UP AND DOWN STOP CHASIN' MY HEART AROUND
DON'T ASK MY HEART TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE
THAT WOULDN'T BE NICE NOW DARLING
Track Name: Horse's Grave
STUMBLING, SKITTERING ACROSS THE RAIL YARD
THE WHORES AND THE BEGGARS KNOW YOUR NAME
THE DAWN IT BLINDS YOU REVEALS THE DEPRIVATION
DOWN IN THE HORSE'S GRAVE
ONLY YOUR FRIENDS THEY KNOW THE SECRET
YOU'RE SO SURE THE MASQUERADE FOOLS THE REST
THE NOOSE PULLS SO TIGHT SWEAT STINGS YOUR EYES
PRIDE IT SUFFOCATES
DOWN IN THE HORSE'S GRAVE
DIANA, WHERE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT
DIANA, YOU'VE FALLEN FROM THE EDGE
DIANA, THE DRUG DEMANDS A SACRIFICE
AND THAT SACRIFICE IT'S GOTTA BE YOU
YOU'RE IN THE HORSE'S GRAVE
IN YOUR DREAMS THE BEAST CAN'T FIND YOU
A BLESSED CHILD THAT GOD PROTECTS
PAIN SHATTERS THE DREAM SCATTERING SOULS LIKE
DEBRIS THERE'S LITTLE LEFT TO SAVE
DOWN IN THE HORSE'S GRAVE
DIANA, WHERE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT
DIANA, YOU'VE FALLEN FROM THE EDGE
DIANA, THE DRUG DEMANDS A SACRIFICE
AND THAT SACRIFICE IS GOTTA BE YOU
YOU'RE IN THE HORSE'S GRAVE
THE DRUG DEMANDS A SACRIFICE
YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN THE HORSE'S GRAVE
IT'S GONNA BE A COLD, COLD NIGHT
Track Name: Summertime/Ain't No Sunshine
SUMMERTIME,
AND THE LIVIN' IS EASY
FISH ARE JUMPIN'
AND THE COTTON IS HIGH
YOUR DADDY'S RICH
AND YOUR MAMMA'S GOOD LOOKIN'
SO HUSH LITTLE BABY
DON'T YOU CRY
ONE OF THESE MORNINGS
YOU'RE GOING TO RISE UP SINGING
YOU'LL SPREAD YOUR WINGS
ANDÂ TAKE TO THE SKY
BUT UNTIL THAT MORNING
NOTHING'S GONNA HARM YOU
WITH YOUR MAMMA AND DADDY STANDING BY
I OUGHT TO LEAVE THE YOUNG THING ALONE,
BUT AIN'T NO SUNSHINE WHEN SHE'S GONE
AIN'T NO SUNSHINE WHEN SHE'S GONE.
IT'S NOT WARM WHEN SHE'S AWAY.
AIN'T NO SUNSHINE WHEN SHE'S GONE
AND SHE'S ALWAYS GONE TOO LONG
ANYTIME SHE GOES AWAY.
ANYTIME SHE GOES AWAY.
ANYTIME SHE GOES AWAY.
Track Name: The Look of Love
THE LOOK OF LOVE IS IN YOUR EYES
A LOOK YOUR SMILE CAN'T DISGUISE
THE LOOK OF LOVE IS SAYING
SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST WORDS COULD EVER SAY
AND WHAT MY HEART HAS HEARD,
WELL IT TAKES MY BREATH AWAY
I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO HOLD YOU,
FEEL MY ARMS AROUND YOU
HOW LONG I HAVE WAITED WAITED
JUST TO LOVE YOU,
NOW THAT I HAVE FOUND YOU
YOU'VE GOT THE LOOK OF LOVE,
IT'S ON YOUR FACE
A LOOK THAT TIME CAN'T ERASE
BE MINE TONIGHT, LET THIS BE
JUST THE START OF SO MANY NIGHTS LIKE THIS
LET'S TAKE A LOVER'S VOW AND THEN SEAL IT
WITH A KISS
I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO HOLD YOU,
FEEL MY ARMS AROUND YOU
HOW LONG I HAVE WAITED WAITED JUST TO LOVE YOU,
NOW THAT I HAVE FOUND YOU
DON'T EVER GO
DON'T EVER GO
I LOVE YOU SO
