Heart In Pieces

I Don't Wanna Live Without Your Love

I Stand Up

We Can Last Forever

Come In From The Night

Look Away

What Kind Of Man Would I Be?

Runaround

You're Not Alone

Victorious


1) HEART IN PIECES (Tim Feehan & Brian McCloud)

Only you can touch me with your dark eyes

with a look that burns like fire through the lonely night.

Sometimes I run, but I can never hide

from the pieces of my heart that fall like rain from the sky.


When you hear the thunder,

when you hear the sound of a mountain crashing down,

it's just my heart in pieces.

When I feel the hunger,

when I'm reaching out with a hundred thousand hands,

it's my heart in pieces.


No one cuts through my soul like you can.

I'm naked to the bone beside your empty hand.

I see your face and I remember.

I'm a prisoner of your fate,

I'm a loser in the race.


When you hear the thunder,

when you hear the sounds of a mountain crashing down,

it's just my heart in pieces.

When I feel the hunger,

when I'm reaching out with a hundred thousand hands,

it's my heart in pieces.


I walk the fine line

between fire and the ice.

The memory lives on.

There's always something to remind me.

Every teardrop falling

when your voice keeps calling.


[chorus repeats until fade.]


2) I DON'T WANNA LIVE WITHOUT YOUR LOVE (Albert Hammond & Diane Warren)

Thought it wouldn't matter

if we didn't stay together,

and if it was over,

maybe it was for the better.

I was thinking I'd be alright,

'til I thought it all through.

Now I know that I ain't really living

if I have to live without you.


I don't wanna live without your love,

I don't wanna face the night alone.

I could never make it through my life

if I had to make it on my own.

I don't wanna love nobody else,

I don't wanna find somebody new.

I don't wanna live without your love,

I just wanna live my life with you.


Guess I had to go away,

so much I had to go through.

Guess I had to lose you

to realize how much I love you.

Can we make the fire burn again,

burn a little stronger?

'Cause I've been alone, and baby,

I can't be alone now any longer.


I don't wanna live without your love,

I don't wanna face the night alone.

I could never make it through my life

if I had to make it on my own.

I don't wanna love nobody else,

I don't wanna find somebody new.

I don't wanna live without your love,

I just wanna live my life with you.


Oh, if I had to make it on my own,

my life would never be the same,

my love would never be the same.

I don't wanna live without your love.


[Chorus repeats]


3) I STAND UP (Robert Lamm & Gerald McMahon)


You'll never lose me to temptation.

Fighting the devil and I beat the dragon too.

I'm at your rescue; I'm your faithful one,

if it's the last thing that I ever mean to do.

I'm in deeper than you could know.

The wise in me won't let it go.

You can count on me, guarantee.


I stand up, I stand up,

believe in myself.

(If you love somebody, stand.)

I stand up, I stand up,

give me a little respect.

(If you need somebody, stand.)


Out of the shadow, yet I'm alright.

It's not as easy as I know it used to be.

I don't have time to look behind me.

I know the truth and it's the truth that set me free.

One more heart to heart to live for;

one more time to stop the war,

inside of me; in spite of me.


I stand up, I stand up,

believe in myself

(If you love somebody, stand.)

I stand up, I stand up,

give me a little respect.

(If you need somebody, stand.)


[Chorus repeats.]


4) WE CAN LAST FOREVER (Jason Scheff & John Dexter)

Don't turn away

'cause there is something I just wanna say:

I need you to stay.

Don't ask me why

'cause I don't even know

how I gave you my heart; I gave it all to you.

Now there's no way that I can lose.


Every little look inside your eyes

is all it takes to make me realize

we can last forever.

With every little moment we can share,

gonna let you know how much I care;

I'll always be there.


Don't walk away

'cause there is something I just gotta say:

I love you today.

Just ask me why,

you're all I'll ever need

now that you're in my life

I really think you shoul know

that I never wanna let you go.


Every little look inside your eyes

is all it takes to make me realize

we can last forever.

With every little moment we can share,

gonna let you know how much I care;

Love lift us away.


We can last forever.


[Chorus repeats one more time]


5) COME IN FROM THE NIGHT (Bruce Gaitsch & Bill Champlin)

How many times have I seen you running;

just one step ahead of the past?

So many nights have I seen it coming;

I try to talk to you when you pass.


I don't know who you were before I met you;

you keep your secret safe with a mask.

It's almost as though the truth is out to get you;

you're just a runaway from the past.


Girl, we've got a love worth keeping.

Maybe there's a way to let it go.

Someday when your demons are sleeping,

let me know, let me know.


Come out of the darkness, baby,

come in from the night.

You can let the light

wash it from your mind.

Open the blinds.


So many times have I seen you crying,

never knowing what it's about.

I do my best, I just keep on trying

to find a way inside to let it out.


Girl, we've got a love worth making.

It would be a shame to close the show.

Now you got a chance worth taking,

let me know, let me know.


Come out of the darkness, baby,

come in from the night.

You can let the light

wash it from your mind.


Come out of the darkness, baby,

come in from the night.

Open up your life,

leave the past behind.

Open up the blinds.


6) LOOK AWAY (Diane Warren)

When you called me up this morning,

told me 'bout the new love you found,

I'm said "I'm happy for you,

I'm really happy for you."

Found someone else,

I guess I won't be coming 'round.

I guess it's over, baby;

it's really over, baby, whoa...

And from what you said

I know you've gotten over me;

it'll never be the way it used to be.

So if it's gotta be this way,

don't worry, baby, I can take the news okay.


But if you see me walking by,

and the tears are in my eyes,

look away, baby, look away.

If we meet on the streets someday,

and I don't know what to say,

look away, baby, look away.

Don't look at me;

I don't want you to see me this way.


When we both agreed as lovers,

we were better off as friends,

that's how it had to be,

yeah, that's how it had to be.

I tell you I'm fine

but sometimes I just pretend;

wish you were holding me,

wish you were still holding me, whoa...

I just never thought,

that I would be replaced so soon;

I wasn't prepared to hear those words from you.

I know I wanted to be free;

yeah, baby, this is how we wanted it to be.


But if you see me waling by,

and the tears are in my eyes,

look away, baby, look away.

If we meet on the streets someday,

and I don't know what to say,

look away, baby, look away.

Don't look at me;

I don't want you to see me this way.


[Repeat chorus 2x]


When you called me up this morning,

told me 'bout the new love you found.

I said "I'm happy for you,

I'm really happy for you."


7) WHAT KIND OF MAN WOULD I BE? (Jason Scheff, Chas Sandford & Bobby Caldwell

Girl, well it's been one of those days again,

and it seems like the harder I try,

over and over, I'm right back where I began;

but you understand.

Oh girl, when nothing else in this world goes right,

oh I just want to run to you.

You pull me through.

Oh baby, who wouldn't want to have you in their life?


Tell me: What kind of man would I be,

living a life without any meaning?

And I know you could surely survive without me,

but if I had to live without you,

tell me what kind of man would I be?


Times when it was pointless for me to try;

I was more than a desperate man.

What seemed like forever was gone with one touch of your hand.

Oh, girl, if I could count all the sleepless nights,

when you were there for me.

A fool could see, oh baby,

once that I found you there was no letting go.


Tell me: What kind of man would I be,

living a life without any meaning?

And I know you could surely survive without me,

but if I had to live without you,

tell me what kind of man would I be?


[Repeat and fade]


8) RUNAROUND (Jason Scheff & Bill Champlin)

Bill: So you need to kick up your heels;

baby, I can understand.

Don't you know how it's making me feel?

I wanna be your only man.

Jason: When it comes right down to the wire,

I just need a touch of your fire.

But you're livin' it up,

you're givin' it up.

Bill: Seems I'm always waiting for you

to find your yesterday.

I think I know what you're tryin' to do;

I got a better way.

Jason: Baby, soon enough it will end;

you'll be reachin' out for a friend.

But now you're livin' it up,

you're givin' it up all the time.

Please be mine.


So good at the runaround;

you're still making me wait outside,

holding on to broken promises.

So good at the runaround;

I don't want to stand in line.

It's my turn, baby,

please just let me in.


Bill: Though you're always out on the town,

I feel your lonliness.

While your life is leading you 'round,

it's just like an empty kiss.

Jason: When it comes right down to the truth,

well, it comes right down to you.

You've been givin' it up,

and losin' in love every time.

Please be mine.


So good at the runaround;

you're still making me wait outside,

holding on to broken promises.

So good at the runaround;

I don't want to stand in line.

It's my turn, baby, please...


So good at the runaround;

I still fall for the same old lies,

holding on to broken promises.

So good at the runaround;

I don't want to lose this time.

It's my turn, baby, let me in,

just let me in.

Baby, please just let me in.


9) YOU'RE NOT ALONE (Jim Scott)

I see you there, a silhouette in the moonlight;

looks like you've given up on love.

You used to be the face in the spotlight;

now lonliness fits you like a glove.

You walk around in your cloak of darkness,

too blind to see the light.

Your wings are broken, now your spirit can't take flight.


You're not alone, you're not alone,

while your heart's still young and free.

You're not alone, pick up the phone

and talk to me; baby, you will see

you're not alone.


Pools of sorrow and tears of joy;

There's a broken-up girl for every broken-down boy.

But you don't wanna hear it,

you like the rhythm of the blues;

Wanna be a sad story on the late-night news.

I don't mean to burst your bubble,

but the world's got troubles worse than you.

And everybody else out here gets lonely too.


You're not alone, you're not alone,

I;ve been waiting patiently.

No, you're not alone, pick up the phone

and talk to me, baby, you will see...


Although your heart is in pieces,

you can't find a reason to try.

You're not alone, while I'm still standing by.

[Repeat chorus and fade]


10) VICTORIOUS (Marc Jordan & John Capek)

Hungry as a fire,

waiting for the flicker,

waiting for the black hook,

slow burn of love.

Sitting in an armchair,

lovers in a cold war,

brittle as a brick wall, oh...

But I want you with all of my might.

'Cause I think we can make this thing right. Baby,


Give me your heart,

the touch of your hand,

the sound of your voice

and I will be victorious.

Hold on to me,

like I hold on to you.

Make it come true,

and I will be victorious.


You were such a stranger,

lying there beside me,

moving like a river, oh...

I was so afraid that

I was gonna lose you,

that I could never have you

here in my arms.

But I want you with all of my might,

'Cause I think we can make this thing right.


Give me your heart,

the touch of your hand,

the sound of your voice

and I will be victorious.

Hold on to me,

like I hold on to you.

Make it come true,

and I will be victorious.
