Track Name: Can't stop loving you (live acoustic version) 3.31
Well all night long want to hold you honey, the way I like to do
Rock around the clock with me babe, ‘excuse the old cliché
And hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, makes no sense to me
Don’t have much, but I’ve got your love, and your love is dynamite.

Chorus;
(And) I can’t stop this feeling, a fire in my heart
Burning it holds me, never lets me go
I can’t stop loving’ you

Hey mama, why the sad face
Sweet lovin’, coming home tonight
Move closer, want to hold you again
Your loving is all I need.

Chorus

Instrumental

Chorus
Track Name: A girl like you (live acoustic version) 4.31
I been around the table for a day or two you know
Nothing here is ever what it seems.
Pick another card and you roll another dice
Loneliness you made a fool of me.

Chorus;
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
What I need right now is a girl like you
And you make me feel so good.
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
What I got right now is a girl like you
And you make me feel alright.

I like the way you smile when you tease me with your eyes
I’ve got to say it really works for me.
I’ve never been the one to say exactly how I feel
Lord you turned this fool into a man.

Chorus

Mid - Solo

I like the way you walk as you move on over to me
I like the way you flick your hair and smile
I like the way you whisper your sweet nothings in my ear
Makes me feel a million dollar man yeah!

Outro

Chorus x2
Track Name: Hero (live acoustic version) 4.25
Near or far, in dark and light,
Danger there, try to steal your life.

Who will stand, who will fight?
Who will be the one to save you?

Chorus;
Hero, you are my hero,
I can’t explain the way I feel,
I heard the news today.
Hero, well I don’t know you,
But you are there behind the flag
You wear tonight.

A way of life, it’s a call to arms,
The unknown face on who we depend.

Who will stand, who will fight?
Who will be the one to save you?

Chorus:

Solo:

Chorus:

Hero, you are my hero,
The words you hear, the song we sing
Is calling out tonight.
Hero, well I don’t know you,
But we raise our hands and hold them high,
Salute you here tonight.
Track Name: I'm not running away (live acoustic version) 4.59
You know that feeling, when it doesn’t seem right,
But you’ve got to take a chance, anyway.
Through the window to my soul, I can see the things you do,
But I can’t stand here and watch, anymore.

Chorus;
I’m not running away, I’m just standing my ground,
I’m just holding the line, for you.
I’m not running away, I’m just spinning around,
I won’t bury my head in the sand.

Yesterday has gone you know, and everything has changed,
You’re just faded memories in my mind, yeah.
I can’t say that I’m sorry, I just did what I had to do,
Another time and place, it might be you.

Chorus

Solo

I’m not running away, I’m just standing my ground,
I’m just holding the line I might die where I stand.
I’m not running away, I’m just spinning around,
I won’t bury my head in the sand.

Chorus

Win some you lose some, win some, choose some,
Good times, bad times, good times, hard times.
That’s just the way that it goes.

I’m not running away, I’m just standing my ground,
I’m just holding the line I might die where I stand.
I’m not running away, I’m just spinning around,
I won’t bury my head in the sand.
Track Name: Lay it on me (live acoustic version) 3.39
I know I’ve seen you round before,
I like what I see,
You can lean on me,
Yeah lay it on me.
You walk the walk and talk the talk,
And when the night is through,
You can lean on me,
Yeah lay it on me.

Chorus;
I said hey, you, lay it on me,
Looking for some loving now,
I like what I see.
Hey, you, lay it on me,
Everybody looking for loving,
Lay it on me.

I like the way you smile,
And I’d like to see some more,
You can lean on me,
Yeah lay it on me.
Got your name your number,
Won’t you take a chance with me?
You can lean on me,
Yeah lay it on me.

Chorus

Solo

Hey, you, lay it on me,
Let me be the one who holds you close tonight!
Hey, you, lay it on me now,
Let me be the one to make you feel alright!
Hey, hey you, come as you are, come as you are,
And God, God only knows, nobody knows, nobody knows.
(C’mon show me what I need)


Oh oh oh please, lay it on me, lay it on me, lay it on me.
Yeah, lay it on me, lay it on me, lay it on me.
(Oh oh oh oh (B/vox))
Track Name: Save me (live acoustic version) 4.35
I got the blues my friend, seems like it never ends,
These four walls are closing in on me.
I need to spread my wings, head for that open door,
Before the madness closes in on… (me)

Chorus;
Save me, save me…
Save me, save me…

I’ve got the blues old friend, seems like the same old song.
Hear the words, but I’m caught up in the wire.
You say it won’t be long, in time well I’ll be strong,
You’ll be waiting, standing in the… (light)

Chorus;
Save me, save me…
Save me, save me…
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh x2

Solo

Chorus;
Save me, save me…
Save me, save me…
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh x2

I got the blues my friend, seems like it never ends,
These four walls are closing in on me.
I’ve got the blues old friend, seems like the same old song.
Hear the words, but I’m caught up in the wire.
Track Name: The last goodbye (live acoustic version) 3.15
It’s funny how your life can come and make that fool of you,
So many times it happens as you walk on down the road.
Looking back to yesterday, the writings on the wall,
The letter on the table said she’s leaving now, so don’t look back…

Chorus:
Goodbye, this is the last goodbye
Goodbye, I’m walking out the door
I ain’t coming round no more.

Strangers in a movie scene, could be me or you
Leaving her to fight a war in a land so far away.
Look into each other’s eyes, and tears begin to fall
This could be the last embrace, the song that never ends.

Chorus:
Goodbye, this is the last goodbye
Goodbye, I’m walking out the door
I ain’t coming round no more.

Oh oh, we’ve all got somebody we can lose
Oh oh oh oh, yeah me and you…

Is this the last time, that last kiss at the door?
Your heart is beaten broken, and lies shattered on the floor.
I guess you had it coming, but you didn’t see the sign
Keep walking on down that road, the road you walk alone…

Chorus:
Goodbye, this is the last goodbye
Goodbye, I’m walking out the door
I ain’t coming round no more.
Track Name: The reason I love you (live acoustic version) 3.47
How do I say the way that I feel?
Words, words don’t come easy, easy to my mind.
You’re always there, you carry me through,
Day after day, standing by my side.

Chorus;
The things that you do, the way that I feel, is the reason I love you.
The things that you do, the way that I feel, is the reason I love you.

What can I do, what can I say?
I didn’t mean to cause you pain.
I know I’ve been wrong, time after time,
The words of this song, I wrote them for you.

Chorus;
The things that you do, the way that I feel, is the reason I love you.
The things that you do, the way that I feel, yeah it’s all because of you.
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, the reason I love you,
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, the reason I love you.

Solo:

Chorus;
The things that you do, the way that I feel, is the reason I love you.
The things that you do, the way that I feel, yeah it’s all because of you.
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, the reason I love you,
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, it’s all because of you.
Track Name: Touch the sky (live acoustic version) 4.25
Time moves on, like the river to the sea…
(Flows on and on)
You and I, we know the writings on the wall…
(And it goes like this…)

Chorus;
If I could touch the sky, I’d take it all for you.
If I could reach the stars, I’d pick one just for you.
If I could touch the sky, I’d take it all for you.
If I could reach the stars, I’d pick one just for...
Oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh x2

Life goes on, like the rider in the night…
(Could be you tonight)
Do or die, we’ve got our backs against the wall…
(But we’ll stand and fight…)

Chorus:

This is the only one, there is no other day,
There is no second chance, don’t throw it all away.
You’ve got to ride the storm, try to sail the sky,
Don’t waste your time away,
Don’t give your life a-w-ay…!

Solo

Chorus:
(Ad lib to end)
Track Name: You are the one (live acoustic version) 4.19
Wonder where you are and what you’re doing,
It’s been so long since I seen you round here,
You’re still here, deep inside my heart.
I should have seen the sign staring right back at me,
Looking back now I know it was,
But I couldn’t see a thing ‘cause I was blind.

Chorus;
You, you are the one, the one that I need,
You are the only one.
You, you are the one, the one that I am,
Yeah you’re all I could ever be.

Ooh, ooh, ooh x2

Sitting all alone, it’s just me here,
I can see your face, stares right back at me,
Wonder where you are and what you’re doing now.
Should have done more to stop you leaving,
Words didn’t seem to come out right,
Story of my life, it just goes on and on.

Chorus

I wake up…you’re still there, by my side.
Dreams…could it be a warning sign,
I don’t want to cross that line,
You’re still here with me.

Ooh, ooh, ooh x1

Chorus

(You are the one) x2 to end.
