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
Track Name: Willow Weep For Me
Willow weep for me
Willow weep for me
Bent your branches down along the ground
and cover me
Listen to my plea
Hear me willow and weep for me

Gone my lover's dreams
Lovely summer dreams
Gone and left me here
To weep my tears along the stream
Sad as I can be
Hear me willow and weep for me

Whisper to the wind and
say they love has sinned
To leave my heart a sign
And crying alone
Murmur to the night
Hide her starry light
So none will find me sighing
Crying all alone

Weeping willow tree
Weeping sympathy
Bent your branches down along the ground
and cover me
Listen to me plea
Hear me willow and weep for me
Willow, willow, weep for me
Track Name: Never Let Me Go
Never let me go
Love me much too much
If you let me go
Life will lose its touch

What would I be
Without you?
There's no place for me
Without you

Never let me go
I'd be so lost if you went away
There'd be a thousand hours in a day
Without you, I know

Because of one caress
My world was overturned
At the very start
All my bridges burned
By my flaming heart

You'd never leave me, would you?
You couldn't hurt me, could you?
Never let me go, never let me go
Track Name: Let's Call it a Day
You work so damn hard at your job all day
The bossman's watching, there's no time to play
You should jump in your car, come on right home
You know I'm waiting, you'll never be alone

And I say, baby let's call it a day
And I say, baby let's call it a day

I've got my hair pulled back and my tie's too tight
I work that overtime every night
But there are bills to pay, no end in sight
Say the words, make me feel alright

And you say, baby let's call it a day
And you say, baby let's call it a day

The moon's waxing and waning and waning and waxing
If you're fit for the saving, you're fit for the taxing
So let's keep making our babies, bending our bedsprings
And hope tomorrow's maybes will take care of our suffering

And you say, baby let's call it a day
And I say, baby let's call it a day
And we say, baby let's call it a day
And we say, baby let's call it a day
Track Name: Candy
Candy
I call my sugar Candy
Because I'm sweet on Candy
And Candy's sweet on me

She understands me
My understanding Candy
And Candy's always handy
When I need sympathy

I wish that there were four of her
So I could love much more of her
She has taken my complete heart
Got a sweet tooth for my sweetheart

Candy,
Well it'll be just dandy
When I can take my Candy
And make her mine all mine
Track Name: Lovers' Lullaby
The moon and stars, soft jazz guitars
Warm night follow a day
Of wine and coos, and gentle woos
Sweet moments, so cliché

A soft embrace, a kiss, a taste
A glance frozen in time
A heart's loud thump, a fresh goosebump
A lover that says, you're mine

Two foreheads touch, a subtle blush
A sky so midnight blue
Our hands that cling while soft I sing
A sweet lullaby for two
Track Name: Centerpiece
The more I'm with you pretty baby
The more I feel my love increase
I'm building all my dreams around you
My happiness will never cease
But nothing's any good without you
'Cause baby you're my centerpiece

We'll buy a house and garden somewhere
Along a country road a piece
A little cottage on the outskirts
Where we can really find release
But nothing's any good without you
'Cause baby you're my centerpiece
Track Name: The Masquerade is Over
Your eyes don't shine like they used to shine
And the thrill is gone when your lips meet mine
I'm afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

Your words don't mean what they used to me
They were once inspired, now they're just routine
I'm afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

I guess I'll have to play Pagliacci
And get myself a clown's disguise
And learn to laugh like Pagliacci
With tears in my eyes

You look the same, you're a lot the same
But my heart says no, no you're not the same
I'm afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love
Track Name: Par Ce Beau Jour De Printemps
Agitée comme un roseau dans la tourmente
Tout m'énerve et tout m'irrite en ce moment
Le monde me désenchante
Par ce beau jour de printemps

Fatiguée, désabusée et sans courage
Impatiente je ne sais plus ce qui m'attends
Je sens arriver l'orage
Par ce beau jour de printemps

Je voudrais me sentir loin d'ici
Fuir la vie de chaque jour
Et peut-être en m'évadant ainsi
Y trouverais-je l'amour

Les bourgeons des marronniers De mon enfance,
L'aubépine, La jacinthe, et les lilas blancs
En vain me chantent leur romance
Douterais-tu du printemps?
Tout est si joyeux
Pourtant je suis malheureuse
D'où me vient tout ce tourment
O mon ami c'est le printemps
Track Name: Don't Explain
Hush now, don’t explain;
There ain’t nothing to gain.
Well, I’m glad you’re back,
But don’t explain.

Quiet, baby, don’t explain;
You know there ain’t nothing to gain.
Skip that the lipstick,
And don’t explain.

You know that I love you,
And what love endures.
All my thoughts are of you,
I am so completely yours.
Don’t wanna hear folks chatter,
‘Cause I know you cheat.
Right or wrong, don’t matter,
When you’re with me, sweet.

Hush now, don’t explain;
You are my joy, and you’re my pain.
My life’s yours, love
So don’t explain.
Track Name: One For My Baby (and One More For The Road)
Its quarter to three,
There's no one in the place cept you and me
So set em up joe
I got a little story I think you oughtta know

Were drinking my friend
To the end of a brief episode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

I know the routine
Put another nickel in that there machine
Im feeling so bad
Wont you make the music easy and sad

I could tell you a lot
But you gotta to be true to your code
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

Youd never know it
But buddy Im a kind of poet
And Ive got a lot of things I wanna say
And if Im gloomy, you've simply gotta listen to me
Until it's all talked away

Well, that's how it goes
And joe I know you're gettin anxious to close
So thanks for the cheer
I hope you didn't mind
My bending your ear

But this torch that I found
Must be drowned
Or it soon might explode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
