Oh I know this homegrown hurt I feel is universal Watching reruns of my life, fast forward through commercials No I can’t fill my heart with what’s inside my shopping cart All I need is love, sweet love, and a fresh start Do I really need to be what you say, they say I should be, become a household name before you’ll be proud of me Won’t you give me an I Love you for I Love you for I Love You For You Not what you do Quiet desperation screams, this life’s not a rehearsal Better late than never dreams come true, roll reversal No you can’t kill the art, of an actor with a leading part All the world’s a stage, a stage to share my heart Do I really want to live, how you say, they say I should live Become somebody else ‘til there’s nothing left to give Who will give me an I Love you for I Love you for I Love You For You Not what you do. Look into my eyes, see me, see me not you Can you tell me why that’s so hard for you to do? I Love you for I Love you for I Love You For You Not what you do

Carefree Chameleon We were losing but far from lost Needed lovin’ whatever the cost Two babes learning how to fly Singin “This is what it sounds like When doves cry..” Shadow mystery of truth and lies Will you dance again before my eyes We all have a few dragons to slay Love is never found by running away How long, how long will you run Before you’re scorched by the sun How long, how long will you run My carefree, Carefree Chameleon Years have flown by since our last dance All is not fair in love and in romance I hope this song finds you doing Ok Love is never found by running away How long, how long will you run Before you’re scorched by the sun How long, how long will you run My carefree, Carefree Chameleon How long, how long will you run Before you’re scorched by the sun How long, how long will you run My carefree, Carefree Chameleon Carefree is as carefree was, Before the split now chameleon does What chameleons do to survive Blending into you Eat you heart alive How long, how long will you run Before you’re scorched by the sun How long, how long will you run My carefree, Carefree Chameleon Whao, my carefree, my carefree Carefree Chameleon Whao, my carefree, my carefree Carefree Chameleon Whao, my carefree, my carefree Carefree Chameleon Whao, my carefree, my carefree Carefree Chameleon

Don’t Haunt My Heart You were a flirt, then made it hurt, I was a conquest to you I was your trick, you were my treat, oh my Sweetest Taboo Don’t haunt my heart, don’t, don’t you haunt my heart All I Wanted was to be loved All I Wanted was a true touch To be known and still be loved Was that asking too much You wanted in, then wanted out, then wanted to be just friends. Won back my heart, then cut it out, just to drop kick it again. Drop kicked my heart, don’t, don’t drop kick my heart Drop kicked my heart, don’t drop kick my heart All I Wanted was to be loved All I Wanted was a true touch To be known and still be loved Was that asking too much All I Wanted was to give love All I Wanted was to share life If it cuts like a knife was it love? ‘Cause that doesn’t feel right ‘Cause that doesn’t feel right ‘Cause that doesn’t feel right ‘Cause that doesn’t feel right. That doesn’t feel right Don’t haunt my heart, don’t, don’t you haunt my heart Don’t haunt my heart, don’t you haunt my heart All I Wanted was to be loved All I Wanted was a true touch To be known and still be loved Was that asking too much All I Wanted was to give love All I Wanted was to share life If it cuts like a knife was it love? ‘Cause that doesn’t feel right

Beyond Her Lines See a living work of art More than the sum of her parts See Beyond Her Lines See her Too often I’ve read her wrong Had to play the make up song Read Beyond Her Lines What does she need? Before what I want What if Relationships were taught in school,
 How to respect, be kind, to stay cool, My major would be in the art of loving a woman’s heart Oh bring some healing Bring on healing MeToo movement took the stage Can men respond, and act their age Hear Beyond Her Lines Be men Easy to say hard to do Live out three words, I love you Love Beyond Her Lines If you want her To feel loved too What if Relationships were taught at home,
 How to listen, be true, not roam, My major would in the art of loving a woman’s heart Oh bring some healing Bring on healing What if Relationships were taught in school,
 How to respect, be kind, to stay cool, My major would be in the art of loving a woman’s heart Oh bring some healing What if Relationships were taught at home,
 How to listen, be true, not roam, My major would in the art of loving a woman’s heart Oh bring some healing Bring on healing See a living work of art More than the sum of her parts See Beyond Her Lines See her

ROMANTIC TRAGEDY When love’s not right, everything is wrong Instead of giving up, dig deep and sing along No feelin’ sorry, no poor baby, just look me in the eye and say “Hell I hear you! I’ve been there too”. A hopeful romantic that me Whose fatal flaws cause Romantic Tragedy Oh no, not the way it’s meant to be When fatal flaws cause Romantic Tragedy When love’s not right, everything is wrong Instead of giving up, dig deep and sing along. No feelin’ sorry, no poor baby, just look me in the eye and say “Hell I hear you! I’ve been there too. God if you’re really there, I need you.” A hopeful romantic that is me Whose fatal flaws cause Romantic Tragedy Oh no, not the way it’s meant to be When fatal flaws cause Romantic Tragedy Dying for the comedy to find me So we watch, watch it in a movie And I become the hero as You make sweet love to me A hopeful romantic that is me Whose fatal flaws cause Romantic Tragedy Oh no, not the way it’s meant to be When fatal flaws cause Romantic Tragedy Enough Already, enough I say With all this Rom/Traum, Enough Already, enough okay Bring on the comedy Save me from Romantic Tragedy Save me from Romantic Tragedy Save me, save me, save me From my Romantic Tragedy

WORLD PEACE You found the answer to World Peace,” she said After an exceptional time in bed Too much information Oh I know it’s true If the world could know the love we do, when we do When we do, when we do, when we do, when we do, when we do There’d be no machine guns or dirty bombs No refugees, orphans, or single Moms Want to turn the station Oh I know, it’s true If the world could know the love we do, when we do When we do, when we do, when we do, when do, when we do I’m a lover and a fighter Born in a cruel war zone Got the jet fuel to ignite her But war won’t make a happy home Make Love Not War, Make Love Not War Make love some more “You found the answer to World Peace,” she said Now I can’t get that line out of my head She’s my inspiration Oh she helps me make, make it through If the world could know the love we do, when we do when we do, when we do, when we do, when do, when we do She’s so faithful and forgiving Holds me back from the abyss Her touch is heavens gate And I’m waiting for her kiss Make Love Not War, Make Love Not War Make love some more
