Track Name: Hit And Miss Love
I loved you for a time in New York City
We took up a gain in Baltimore
Missed you by a day in Oklahoma
Left me wond’ring what this all was for

Got your letter in Missouri
Mine came back to me in Tennessee
I lost you on the way to San Francisco
That’s the way it always seems to be

Well I’ve been so many places I can’t remember
And ev’rywhere’s a memory of you
I’m tired but I’ll keep on moving
Hoping one day I’ll run in to you

I’m sitting in a diner drinking coffee
I look up as you walk in the door
Oh you smile you’re so glad to see me
I’ve had this dream a hundred times before

I’ve been so many places I can’t remember
Ev’rywhere’s a memory of you
I’m tired but I keep on moving
Hoping someday I’ll run in to you

We’ll catch up again in New York City
We’ll take a drink and laugh about our past
Or maybe you’ll just be a memory
Of a happy love that came and went too fast

Yeah maybe we’ll just be a memory
Of a happy love that came and went too fast
Track Name: A Love So Sweet, Gentle and Kind
I’ve loved girls from the city and from over the sea,
But none so lovely as the one loving me

You could offer me diamonds or the stars up above.
They would mean nothing without your love.

You could offer me diamonds or the stars up above.
They would mean nothing without your love.

I could search the world over but I’d never find,
A love so sweet, gentle and kind


I’ve loved you forever though we’ve only met,
Ev’ry day gets better. How good can a good thing get?

You could offer me diamonds or the stars up above.
They would mean nothing without your love.

I could search the world over but I’d never find,
A love so sweet, gentle and kind
A love so sweet, gentle and kind
Track Name: Rain Fall Down
Rain falls down on me tonight
I dream again I’m holding you tight
Though things didn’t work out right
I’m better for loving you, Baby
Better for loving you, Baby

Couples pass me in the rain
They hush by me then they laugh again
The love upon their faces plain
Stuck here loving you, Baby

And the rain falls down on me tonight
I dream again I’m holding you tight
Though things didn’t work out right
I’m better for loving you, Baby
Better for loving you, Baby

I stand and watch the rain fall down
I listen to the sleepy sound
And I’m so aware you’re not around
Stuck here loving you, Baby

Take this song I give to you
There’s nothing you got to do
Now I’ll go on and hope and pray
You’ll come back some day

And the rain falls down on me tonight
I dream again I’m holding you tight
Though things didn’t work out right
I’m better for loving you, Baby
Better for loving you, Baby

I think about the times we had
All the good, all the bad
And suddenly I feel so sad
Back here loving your, Baby

Now take this song I give to you
There’s nothing that you got to do
Now I’ll go on and hope and pray
You’ll come back some day

Rain falls down on me tonight
I dream again I’m holding you tight
Though things didn’t work out right
I’m better for loving you, Baby
Better for loving you, Baby

Yeah, though things didn’t work out right
I’m better for loving you, Baby
Better for loving you, Baby
Better for loving you, Baby
Track Name: Biding My Time
I see you ev’ry day but you never look my way
You don’t even know I’m watching you
Now I could admit defeat but such an ending’s incomplete
Besides there’s nothing else I’d rather do

I’m counting the songs that the robin sings around my door and
I’m wondering when I’ll share his song with you

At night I lay in bed visualising in my head
The way I’ll take my chance to make you mine
But ev’ry morning’s just the same because this tiger turns out tame
Like some old actor who forgets his lines

And I’m biding my time like a soldier
Till the battle’s done
And rifles are for hanging up on walls
And I’m counting the songs that the robin sings around my door and
I’m wondering when we’ll share his song with you

I ought to make my move and fast, this opportunity won’t last
Already I’ve been waiting far too long

Biding my time like a soldier
Till the battle’s done
And rifles are for hanging up on walls
Counting the songs that the robin sings around my door and
Wondering when we’ll share his song with you
Wondering when we’ll share his song with you
Track Name: Come Into My Arms
And here we are together
How I’ve waited for this moment to come


But now you’re here it’s so clear
A new love’s just begun

Come into my arms my darling lady
How I’ve waited so for you
We’ll be in each other’s arms forever
Before the night is through

Somewhere in the night a bid is calling
Calling from his lonely tree-top home
He’s crying for the dawn and a love that’s gone
He’s so sad to be alone. So

Come into my arms my darling lady
How I’ve waited so for you
We’ll be in each other’s arms forever
Before the night is through

Come into my arms my darling lady
How I’ve waited so for you
We’ll be in each other’s arms forever
Before the night is through

Come into my arms my darling lady
How I’ve waited so for you
We’ll be in each other’s arms forever
Before the night is through
Track Name: If I Told You
If I told you I love you
Would that be O.K.?
I want to tell you but I’m scared to
I don’t know what you’ll say
If you said you felt the same
Life would be complete
If I took you by surprise
Would that mean defeat?

I long to tell you how much I love you
Ev’ry night and day
But come the moment I get so nervous
I let it slip away
If I saw love in your eyes
Then I’d have to speak
If you said you loved me too
We’d have the love we seek

This is crazy, why do I stumble?
I can’t eat; I cannot sleep
I’m on the cliff edge - the posse’s coming
I have to make the leap
Now I see the love in your smile,
You say you’ve waited weeks
No more waiting now
We’ve found the love we seek.
Track Name: Since You're Gone
SINCE YOU'RE GONE

Since you’re gone my life’s turned very neat
Since you’re gone the days don’t miss a beat
Since you’re gone Life’s so incomplete since you’re gone

Since you’re gone morning rolls around
Since you’re gone Dawn breaks without a sound
Since you’re gone laughter can’t be found
Since you’re gone

Ever since you left you’re still in my heart
Every single mournful day
I need you in my arms to brush against your cheek
I close my eyes and see you but I fear you’ll slip away

Since you’re gone the sparrow’s out of tune
Since you’re gone there’s tears across the moon
Since you’re gone you left so very soon [STOP!

Since you’re gone I remember all the fun
And I swear I never saw a brighter sun
Since you’re gone how I love my lovely one

Since you’re gone the world’s a different place
Since you’re gone love fills the empty space
Since you’re gone you’ll always have a place
Since you’re gone

Ever since you left you’re still in my heart
Every single livelong day
I need you in my arms to brush against your cheek
I close my eyes and see you but I fear you’ll slip away

Since you’re gone I remember all the fun
And I swear I never saw a brighter sun
Since you’re gone I still love my lovely one

Since you’re gone the world’s a different place
Since you’re gone love fills the empty space
Since you’re gone you’ll always have a place
Since you’re gone

You’ll always have a place since you’re gone
You’ll always have a place since you’re gone
You’ll always have a place since you’re gone
