Track Name: I Love You Like The Way That I Used To Do
What did I think I'd find
by keep on trying to change your mind?

Hug, hug, huggy and kiss, kiss, kissy
Tell me, tell me, tell me you miss, miss, miss me

What did you think I'd do?
The ch-ch-changes you put me through

The sun shines brighter every day I'm without you
but I love, love, love you like the way that I used to do
Track Name: Kisses Are Always Promises
You're moving way too fast to slow down
remember that
your words mean so much to me

Can't you see? Can't you see?

Kisses are promises,
so please be honest
with taking my love and breaking my heart

Kisses are precious,
so please don't be selfish
by giving your love but living apart from me

You're going way too far to turn back
Remember that
your smiles mean so much to me

Can't you see? Can't you see?

Kisses are promises,
so please be honest
with taking my love and breaking my heart

Kisses are precious,
so please don't be selfish
by giving your love but living apart from me
Track Name: Heather, Tell Me Why
There's thousands of people
In this hated town
There's thousands of people
Wearing frowns

It makes me crazy
It makes me blue
To think I'm one of them because I can't have you

Maybe if you take the time to show it
Baby, if you reap my love I'll sow it
If you need someone to love forever
Honey, take my hand let's live together

All my nights are filled with dreams about you
But my arms are empty, babe, without you
Our love is like a bud about to flower
Maybe if your sweet it'll never sour

Heather, tell me why
If it was any other guy
I wouldn't feel so bad
You wouldn't take me sad
Track Name: Let's Go Away
I'm just waiting
I'm just waiting in the cold, wet snow

I'm just waiting
I'm just waiting for my love

So we can go away
So we can go away to a happy day

I'm just waiting
I'm just waiting for my love to come

I've been waiting
I've been waiting for so long

So we can go away
So we can go away to a happy day
Track Name: I'm Lost Without You Here
Open your eyes
you sleepyhead
don't stay in bed all day
it's sunny outside
and bad dreams have your mind

Sunday through Saturday
from year to year
the skies are grey without you
I'm lost without you here

Let's see that smile
come from under-
neath the covers, hey
time's wasting away
and bad dreams have my mind

My hopes and fantasies
wishes and fears
come crashing down around me
I'm lost without you here

Hideaways
blue plaid pillowcases and
lemonade
and all the things we used to say
and do

Open your eyes
you sleepyhead
don't stay in bed all day
it's sunny outside
and bad dreams have your mind

Sunday through Saturday
from year to year
the skies are grey without you
I'm lost without you here
Track Name: Carrie Cooksey
If we
only could see
to the other side to ecstasy

Would you take me there?

You, me, Carrie Cooksey
In each other's arms in ecstacy

Would you take me there?
Track Name: We're Both Alone
All I want to do
is be with you
and hold you near
and lose the fear,
growing in me

Each and every day
I find a way
to need you more
than the day before
powerlessly

When the morning comes we'll sigh
and avoid each other's eyes
and never wonder why
we live lonely lives

All I want to do
is be with you
and hold you near
and lose the fear,
growing in me

When the morning comes we'll sigh
and avoid each other's eyes
and never wonder why
we live lonely lives
Track Name: Friendships and Love
You didn't wait for the morning to come
to say goodbye to the one you love
and I waited all day by the phone
just to hear if you were ever coming home

Don't you think we could pretend
that friendships and love never end?
though I know it's true
they do, they do, they do

It didn't take a half hour to reply
to all the cards and the letters I write
and I waited all night by your door
just to see if you would see me anymore

Don't you think we could pretend
that friendships and love never end?
though I know it's true
they do, they do, they do
