What You're Missing

Joseph Williams / Jay Gruska

 

All we wanted was each other; nothin' more.
You were looking for an answer; you were out the door.
I didn't know what you were after. I knew you had to take a chance, girl.
Did you forget about the laughter? Say oh, oh no.

CHORUS:

Oo, what you're missing could have been yours from the start.
You won't listen when it's coming from the heart.
Now you're missing me.
You'll find that out when we're apart.

Had some crazy conversations.
You know they seemed so right.

Remember how it used to keep us up all night?
I didn't know what you were after. Maybe there never was an answer.
Did you forget about the laughter? Say oh, oh no.

CHORUS

 
 
 

Waiting For You To Decide

David Foster / David Paich / Steve Lukather

 

Used to think that you'd do anything for me.
I thought your heart was pounding at my door.
Now it seems that things aren't right.
You've been crying ev'ry night.
You're rainy season just ain't slowing down.

I still love you even though there's things you can't explain.
I don't want to know if you've been lying all along.

You've been running away. Now you've run out of places to hide.
I can no longer stand here waiting for you to decide
if there's a heart still left inside.
There's someone watching tonight.

You've been trying for some time to get away from me.

It's just the same old game you've tried before.
We've talked it out a thousand time. It's still the same old useless lines.
You've made your point now why can't I make mine?

I still love you even though there's things you can't explain.
I don't want to know if you've been lying all this time.

You've been running away. Now you've run out of places to hide.

I can no longer stand here waiting for you to decide
if there's a heart still left inside.
You can't get away. There's someone watching tonight.

 
 
 

Bad Advice

James Pankow / David Foster

 

She said, "Tell me what it's all about." I said "Why, why, why?
It's just something you could do without. You better try, try try."
She said, "I can't reach you on the telephone.
I can't call you when you're not at home.
You keep saying that you're all alone.
That's a lie, lie, lie."

CHORUS:

Bad advice had me down and undone. Got to try again to believe in myself.
Look at me, I'm alone in the end. Can you see me falling, falling down.

I said, "Mama can you get it straight?" She said "Why, why, why?"

-"I wanna tell you that it just can't wait, so let's try, try, try"
She said, "I don't care where you might have gone.
I don't care 'cause you've done me wrong.
You been doin' it far too long,
So goodbye, bye, bye."

CHORUS


She said "Tell me what it's all about." I said, "Why, why, why?
It's just something you can do without. You better try, try, try."
-"I can't reach you on the telephone. I can't call you when you're not at home
You keep saying that you're all alone. That's a lie, lie, lie

 
 
 

Chains

Ian Thomas

 

I don't want any trouble. I don't want to make any waves.
I don't want any conscience. And I don't wanna be brave.

I've kept my distance. My feelings have never been shown.
I know that I've been walking fences,
Denied what I have known.

I carry chains. (I carry chains.)
Heavy, heavy chains. (Chains that are made.)
I carry chains (I carry chains) 'round my feet.
I feel the weight (I feel the weight.)

Chains are the different things that should not be hanging on me.
I put my conscience under a stone, the stone under the ground.

Walked from where I had left it. I hoped it couldn't be found.
My conscience persisted. It's a haunted seed I have sown.

Calls me out from the distance
And it just won't leave me alone.

I carry chains. (I carry chains.)
Chains that are made. (Chains that are made.)
I carry heavy chains. (I carry chains.)
Talk about the weight. (I feel the weight.)

Chains are the temporary things that should not be hanging on me.

 
 
 

Hard To Say I'm Sorry

Peter Cetera / David Foster

 

"Everybody needs a little time away," I heard her say, "from each other."
"Even lover's need a holiday far away from each other."
Hold me now. It's hard for me to say I'm sorry. I just want you to stay.
After all that we've been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.
And after all that's been said and done,
You're just the part of me I can't let go.

Couldn't stand to be kept away just for the day from your body.

Wouldn't wanna be swept away, far away from the one that I love.
Hold me now. It's hard for me to say I'm sorry. I just want you to know.
Hold me now. I really want to tell you I'm sorry. I could never let you go.
After all that we've been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.
And after all that's been said and done,
You're just the part of me I can't let go.

After all that we've been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.

You're gonna be the lucky one.

 
 
 

Get Away

Peter Cetera / David Foster / Robert Lamm

 

When we get there gonna jump in the air.
No one'll see us 'cause there's nobody there.
After all, you know we really don't care.
Hold on. I'm gonna take you there.

 
 
 

Follow Me

James Pankow / David Foster

 

One shoe on; one shoe off.
Nothin' in life is decideable; wouldn't you know.
Nothing's supposed to be easy.
Take one day at a time. Ain't no need to hurry.
Realize where you are, and where you're going to.

CHORUS:

Follow me, ain't no need to go on all by yourself.
Follow me; don't need nobody else.
Follow me; and together we'll build a better life.
Follow me.

One more time; toe the line;

Nothing in life is impossible. Both of us know
Life is as good as we make it.
Dark reflections of the past
Drown in our tomorrows.
Time to laugh; time to love;
Time to live again.

CHORUS

Time to laugh; time to live again.

 
 
 

Sonny Think Twice

Bill Champlin / Danny Seraphine

 

You had it so good for so long
you thought you were so very strong.
You had too much glory
Just a little too much too soon.

You thought you could never be wrong.
She was always by your songs.
What a sad, sad story
it’s an age old story

Ev'ry man will get his chance to play the fool
ev'ry time he takes a chance and thinks he’s cool

Sonny, think twice
before you close the door
Take my advice
Your love can’t take much more
Somethin’ about your life is wrong
When the lady who loves you more is gone
and you don’t know what to do
when it all comes down to you

(Instrumental)

lady who loves you more is gone
Sonny, think twice

(Instrumental)

You feel so afraid to be loved
because you see too much.
What a sad, sad story,
but you brought it up on yourself.

You gave it all up for fun.
Now you got no where to run
with your sad, sad story
it’s an age old story

Ev'ry man will get his chance to play the fool
Ev’ry time he takes his chance he still thinks he’s cool.

And you don’t know what to do
When it all comes down to you.

Don’t think that she don’t care
‘but your Saturday night affair,
and you’d better watch out
somebody is gonna be there

Sonny, think twice
Before you close the door.
Take my advice
Your love can’t take much more.
Somethin’ about your life is wrong
When the lady who loves you more is gone.

 
 
 

What Can I Say

James Pankow / David Foster

 

Lonely nights; empty days, use me up so many ways.
You came along and stole my heart away.
I just wanna hold you darlin', tonight,
knowin' that the love between us is right.
I can't believe that you'd ever let me go; oh, no.

CHORUS:
What can I say? What can I do? I'm so in love with you.
Got to be strong; but, for how long must I have this feeling?
Won't go away.

Take me back to yesterday, I just wanna fade away
Closer to you that what we used to be.
Are we really gonna let it die? Close the book and give it one more try.
I can't believe that you'd ever let me go; oh, no.

CHORUS

 
 
 

Rescue You

Peter Cetera / David Foster

 

After he hurt you, you said you were leaving; you got up to walk out the door.
The story he's telling you, you weren't believin'; you've certainly heard it before.
And I can't stand it, you're feeling so sad. I can't take it, it's makin' me mad.

Say the word and I will rescue you. (Say the word, say the word)
Say the word and I will come to rescue you.

I could be wrong, but unless I'm mistaken, it's only a matter of time.

And I know you're giving him more than you've taken; you've come to the end of the line.
And I can't stand it, you're feeling so sad. I can't take it, it's makin' me mad.

Say the word and I will rescue you. (Say the word, say the word)
Say the word and I will come to rescue you. (Say the word, say the word)

Something missing in your life; tell you what I say; blues are on the run and help is on the way.

Something missing in your life; tell you what I'll do.

Just like in a fairy tale, I'll rescue you. I'm gonna rescue you.
I just can't take it when your feeling so sad.
I can't take it, it's making me mad.

Something missing in your life; tell you what I say; blues are on the run and help is on the way.

Something missing in your life; tell you what I'll do.
Just like in a fairy tale, I'll rescue you. I'm gonna rescue you.

Say the word and I will rescue you. (Say the word, say the word)
Say the word and I will come to rescue you. (You know that help is on the way)

 
 
 

Love Me Tomorrow

Peter Cetera / David Foster

 

She said, "It's lonely here tonight." She's always sad when she's alone.
She said, "I need you here tonight." She couldn't wait 'til I get home.
She loves me, and that's all I need to know.
She's part of my life; just a part I won't let go.

Then she said,
"Love me tomorrow. Won't you please promise me? Love me tomorrow like today.
Love me tomorrow; hurry back. Can't you see I need you much more than yesterday?"

You know it's always cold at night; it's always lonely 'til the dawn.
And though it's not what we both want, knowing she's there, I'll carry on.
Because she loves me, and that's all I need to know.
She's part of my life; just a part I won't let go.

Then she said,
"Love me tomorrow. Won't you please promise me? Love me tomorrow like today.
Love me tomorrow; hurry back. Can't you see I need you more than any words can say?"
She loves me, and that's all I need to know.
She's part of my life; just a part I won't let go.

Then she said,
"Love me tomorrow. Won't you please promise me? Love me tomorrow like today.
Love me tomorrow; hurry back. Can't you see I need you much more than yesterday?"
Love me tomorrow; love me tomorrow like today.
Love me tomorrow; I need you much more than yesterday.
