Lyrics

1. When a Man Loves a Woman

When a man loves a woman
Can't keep his mind on nothin' else
He'd trade the world
For a good thing he's found
If she is bad, he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he puts her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way
It ought to be

When a man loves a woman
I gave you everything I got
Trying to hold on
To your precious love
Baby Baby please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Deep down in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she is playing him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Loving eyes can never see

Yes when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
'Cause baby, baby
When a man loves a woman
When a man loves a woman
When a man loves a woman
When a man, when a man, when a man loves a woman

2. Soul Provider

Talk about love, talk about trust
Talkin' 'bout forever baby
When you're talkin' 'bout us
I give you my word, stick to my guns
Believe when I tell ya baby
That we've just begun

You don't understand, no
The full intent of my plan

CHORUS:
Baby, I wanna be your soul provider..yeah..huh..
Baby, I wanna stay that way
For the longest time
Baby, I wanna be, your soul provider
Just say you'll let me
And darlin' I will..I will...will..

I know you've been hurt, I know your love's shy
You don't have to say it baby
It's gonna take some time
You've got my heart, in the palm of your hand
Swear it's gonna stay there baby
Give me half a chance

You don't understand..No..
The full intent of my plan

Chorus:
Baby, I wanna be your soul provider..yeah..huh..
And I wanna stay that way
For the longest time
Baby, I wanna be, your soul provider
Just say you'll let me
And darlin' I will

I've been waitin' for a long time for somebody like you
To give my love, all my love day and night..oh..oh..
Just say you'll be mine for the rest of your life
Baby I'll show you why
I wanna be...your soul provider..
Baby, I wanna be your soul Provider.hey..
Honey, I wanna stay that way, for the longest time
Baby, I wanna be..wanna be your soul provider..hey..
Baby, talk about love, talk about trust, I wanna, I wanna be
Baby I wanna be your soul..your soul provider..fades

3. A Love So Beautiful

The summer sun went down on our love long ago
But in my heart I feel the same old afterglow
A love so beautiful in every way
A love so beautiful we let it slip away

We were all too young to understand to ever know
That lovers drift apart and that's the way love goes
A love so beautiful a love so free
A love so beautiful a love for you and me

And when I think of you I fall in love again
A love so beautiful in every way
A love so beautiful we let it slip away

And when I think of you I fall in love again
A love so beautiful we let it slip away
A love so beautiful in every way
A love so beautiful we let it slip away

4. The One Thing

As I'm looking back in time
My heart was young and the world was mine
Driven by desires blind
I remember someone told me as the years roll by
Remember one thing, the one thing
People come and people go
The way the winds of fortune blow
So hard to find that heart of gold
I remember someone told me
When you find it don't let go

CHORUS
You're the one thing, you're the one thing baby
Makes this world heaven
Makes the whole thing right
You're the one thing
That means something baby
The one I believe in, the one thing I need in my life

As I look into your lovin' eyes
There ain't no doubt just where my treasure lies
I've searched the earth for somethin' true
But the only truth that matters is my love for you

And that's the one thing, the one thing
Timeless as the stars, faithful as the sea
Like the endless risin' sun I know you'll be there for me
There's so much love inside this heart of mine could break
'Cause I know I've found forever and with every breath I take

CHORUS

And your love is like a rainbow
In a world that's black and white
You paint my dreams in color
And in your arms they come alive
You're my every inspiration
You're the wings that make me fly
You're my only destination
You're the one thing, the one thing in my life, ooh

You're the one thing, you're the one thing baby

CHORUS

5. Georgia on My Mind

Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Talking 'bout Georgia
I'm in Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight
Through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

Georgia, sweet Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back
It always leads back to you

I'm in Georgia, Georgia, sweet Georgia
No peace, no peace I find
Just this old sweet song
Keeps Georgia forever on my mind
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia forever on my mind

6. Don’t Tell Me It’s Over

It's in your eyes
Here we go again
Tonight you're gonna come on strong
Such a cryin' shame, the time we spend
Over who's been right
And who's been wrong
There'll be no pretending this time
Your eyes are like fire
You'll swear it's the end of the line
But you and I, we both know you're liar

CHORUS:
Don't tell me that it's over
Don't tell me that we're through
Don't tell me that it's over
Don't try 'n tell me that it's over
It isn't true
Don't tell me that it's over
'Cause you can't say good-bye, any more
Than I, can walk away from you

Ya say it's hard to love a man like me
But baby now and then
Ya do your fair share so easily
You can push me to my limit
And back again

Just when I can't take anymore
And I've made up my mind
I say I'm ready to walk out the door
But somethin' keeps me from leavin' you behind

CHORUS:

There's a reason why
After we've tried
We're not runnin' to the arms of another
When all comes down
We both know by now
We just still mean too much to each other

Don't tell me, don't tell me
Don't tell me it's over

7. Yesterday

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks like they're here to stay
Oh I believe in yesterday
Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh yesterday came suddenly

CHORUS:
Why she had to go
I don't know, she wouldn't say
I said something wrong
Now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh I believe in yesterday

CHORUS:

8. Pleasure or Pain

You pull me in, then ya push me away
Ask me leave, then ya beg me to stay
Bend me baby, bend me till I break
Do you really wanna know how much
This heart of mine can take
When I find myself in a daze sometimes
Lovin' you has got me losin' my mind

[Chorus:]
Is it pleasure or pain
Keeps me runnin', keeps me runnin' to you
Pleasure or pain
I just can't decide
Are they one and the same
It's confusing me blind
Am I in love or insane
Am I in it for the pleasure or pain

Ya make me smile
Make me thankful that I breathe
Let me taste some heaven
Before ya drop me to my knees
Ya chain me baby, till it's time to set me free
Give me everything I want
Give me nothin' that I need

Well I ask myself why I keep holdin' on
Lovin' you is just a weakness too strong

[Chorus]

I still don't understand why I can't resist
What keeps me comin' back, comin' back for more of this
Pleasure or pain
Keeps me runnin', keeps me runnin' to you
Pleasure or pain
I just can't decide
Are they one and the same
It's confusing me blind
Am I in love or insane
Am I in it for the pleasure or pain

Keeps me runnin', keeps me running to you
I just can't decide
Are they one and the same
It's confusing me blind
Am I in love or insane
Am I in it for the pleasure or pain

9. Wait On Love

Now she's gone, from my life
And it nearly drove me out of my mind
Always thinking what she meant to me
All we left behind
Can't be afraid, startin' over
Gotta get up, start livin' again
When you're drownin' in your loneliness
The hurtin' never ends....
And the night rolls on
I search for some piece of mind
No, I can't be wrong
Won't get burned by desire this time

[Chorus:]
Gonna wait on love, holdin' on till I find the one
Wait on love, won't hold back
I promised myself, till it comes...
Gonna wait on love

Wanna get close with somebody
When a voice says I'm movin' too fast
It's hard to know when to walk away Or try to make it last......
Still the night rolls on
Secrets are safe in the dark
And I stayed too long
I'm not gonna lie to my heart

[Chorus]

Someone I can run to
Just know that it's right
Trust my heart and soul to
For the rest of my life....

10. To Love Somebody

There's a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be
To Lived with you, To lived with you
There's a way
Everybody say’s
To do each and every little thing
But what does it bring
If I ain't got you, I ain't got you

CHORUS:
Baby, You don't know what it's like
Baby, you don't know what it's like
To love somebody, to love somebody
The way I love you

In my Mind
I see your face again
I know my frame of mind
You ain't got to be so blind
I'm blind, so very blind
I'm a man
Can't you see what I am
I live and breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I ain't got you If I ain't got you Baby

CHORUS:
You don't know what it's like
Baby you don't know what it's like
to love somebody to love somebody
the way I love you

Oh yeh
you don't know what it’s like
Baby, you don't know what it’s like
To love somebody, to love somebody, to love somebody
you don't know,
To love somebody the way I love you. You don’t know
To Love
To love somebody to love somebody you don’t know

To love somebody to love somebody
the way I love you.

11. Can I Touch You There

Baby, show me what you feel
Come to me, show me somethin' real
I need to know, I need you completely
Closer baby closer, come on let's begin
Love is takin' over, gotta let it in
Ooh I need to feel the heart of you
Need to reach the very deepest part of you

CHORUS:
Can I touch you there, touch you deep inside
Can I touch your heart, the way you're touchin' mine
Can I touch you there, touch you deep within
Can I touch you there, can I touch you...there

Baby tell me with your eyes, tell me every secret darlin'
Every deep desire, till you and I are makin' love completely
Closer baby closer, can't be close enough
I can't help the way I hold you
I just hunger for your love
Ooh and I need to feel the heart of you
Need to reach the very deepest part of you

CHORUS:

All I wanna do is touch ya baby
Touch the very soul inside of you
Ooh and I need to feel the heart of you
Need to reach the very deepest part of you
Let me be the one to show you just what love can do

CHORUS:

12. Missing You Now

I talk to you but its not the same as touchin' you
And every time you whisper my name, I wanna run to you
We'll be together, it won't be long, it won't be long
But it feels like forever, and its hard to be strong

CHORUS:
Baby 'cause I'm missing you now
And its drivin' me crazy
How I'm needin' you baby
I'm missing you now
Can't wait till I'm alone with you
To show you how I'm missing you now

Wishin' you were here by my side is all that I can do
Got my arms around my pillow at night, they should be
holdin' you
Thought I was stronger, how could I know, how could
I know
I can't take this much longer, its so hard on my soul

CHORUS:

Baby I just can't wait, till I see your face
Chase away this loneliness inside
When you're close to my heart, right here in my arms
Then and only then, will I be satisfied
I'm missing you now
We'll be together, it won't be long, it won't be long
But it feels like forever, and its hard to be strong

CHORUS:

13. Carrie

Carrie is a girl disillusioned by the world and her crazy man
So she takes her vows and she swears no matter how she'll never fall again
Carrie, who can blame you if you find some kind of refuge in your solitude
But there's gotta come a time when your passion for your freedom makes a slave of you
She said wait, wait, wait

CHORUS:

Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run, Carrie, Carrie, don't you hide
What's going on inside
Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run, Carrie, Carrie, don't you hide
What's going on inside

Carrie once again in the company of friends 'Cause she's so alone
Ever so aware of a part of her that no one's ever really known
There will come a day when she'll find a way to fade into the scenery
Carrie are you alive or just going through the motions like you seem to be
She lives in a dream to wait for a dream who waits for tomorrow
She said wait, wait, wait
Now Carrie don't you fight it, no don't even try
'Cause in your heart what's been decided just will not be denied
Am I getting through to you all I wanna do for you, is take you for a ride
Oh Carrie, Carrie, Carrie

CHORUS:

Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run

14. Sexual Healing

Heal me, my darling
Baby I'm hot just like an oven
I need some lovin'
And baby, I can't hold it much longer
It's getting stronger and stronger
And when I get that feeling
I want Sexual Healing
Sexual Healing, oh baby
Makes me feel so fine
Helps to relieve my mind
Sexual Healing baby, is good for me
Sexual Healing is something that's good for me
Whenever blue tear drops are falling
And my emotional stability is leaving me
There is something I can do
I can get on the telephone and call you up baby, and
Honey I know you'll be there to relieve me
The love you give to me will free me
If you don't know the things you're dealing
I can tell you, darling, that it's Sexual Healing
Get up, Get up, Get up, Get up, let's make love tonight
Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, 'cos you do it right
Baby I got sick this morning
A sea was storming inside of me
Baby I think I'm capsizing
The waves are rising and rising
And when I get that feeling
I want Sexual Healing
Sexual Healing is good for me
Makes me feel so fine, it's such a rush
Helps to relieve the mind, and it's good for us
Sexual Healing, baby, is good for me
Sexual Healing is something that's good for me
And it's good for me and it's good to me
My baby ohhh
Come take control, just grab a hold
Of my body and mind soon we'll be making it
Honey, oh we're feeling fine
You're my medicine open up and let me in
Darling, you're so great
I can't wait for you to operate
I can't wait for you to operate
When I get this feeling, I need Sexual Healing

15. The Best Of Love

I've got this somethin' to tell you
There ain't no doubt in my mind
All I'm askin' is to keep you near forever
Just till the end of time

Baby I know where love grows
My heart is overflowin'
You're so fine and so true
I wanna spend my time, spendin' time with you, baby

I've got the best of love
With every breath and every beat of my heart
You know you've got me by my deepest emotion
'Cause you keep givin' me the best of love

Passion and sweet inspiration
So rare and so hard to find
You are my journey and my destination
Queen of this heart of mine

Baby I know where love grows
In my life it's overflowin'
You're so fine and it's so true
I know I've got it all, all because of you, baby

I've got the best of love
With every breath and every beat of my heart
You know ya reach into my deepest emotion
And you keep givin' me, the best of love

With every moment that passes by
This love goes on
It keeps growin' stronger
And the more we're together
The best keeps gettin' better, baby

I've got the best of love
With every breath and every beat of my heart
You know you're down inside my deepest emotion
So just keep givin' me, the best of love

I've got the best of love
With every breath and every beat of my heart
Ain't nothin' finer than that sweetest emotion
Just keep givin' me, just keep on givin' me
The best of love, best of love, best of love

16. Why Me

I wake up while you lie sleepin'
I take one look at you and wonder
Am I still dreamin'
Are you some kind of angel
Come down to save me
Or just some place my imagination's trying' to take me
What have I dont to deserve what I feel
You give me somethin' that's too good to be real
How does a treasure like you fall into my hands
I need to know just one thing
I still don't understand
Why do you love me
Why do you give so much
How do you heal the pain within me
Is it the power of your touch
Now that you've opened up the heavens
For this heart of mine to see
I've become the richest man that I could ever be
Baby why, baby why me
Why me, why me
I ain't got a clue, maybe just a notion
Sometimes I'm helplessly adrift out in the ocean
I feel like a child with one sole intention
In search of an answer that defies all comprehension
I'm in too deep but that's what you're all about
Got no hope or desire of finding my way out
How does a treasure like you fall into my hands
I need to know that one thing
Can ya help me understand
Why do you love me
Why do you give so much
How do you heal the pain within me
Is it the power of your touch
Now that you've opened up the heavens
For this heart of mine to see
I've become the richest man that I could ever be
Baby why, baby why me
Couldn't been anyone in this world, why me
Every lesson that I've learned
You've come to me and shown me
What it means to be loved
Couldn't been anyone in this world, why me
Every lesson that I've learned
You've come to me and shown me
What it means to be loved
Why me, why me, why me, why me
Help me understand just what you've done to me
'Cause I'm the richest man that I could ever be
Tell me why, tell my why, baby

17. Whiter Shade of Pale

We skipped the light Fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kind of seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray

And so it was that later
As the Miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale

She said there is no reason
And the truth is plain to see
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might just as well've been closed

And so it was that later
As the Miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale

And so it was.... (fade)

18. Everybody’s Crazy

Sweet little girl, she's the high school queen
She lives tonight, in every school boys' dream
Oh, but nobody knows how she's cryin'
She's just a child goin' on seventeen

She gets so confused by her friends and their scenes
They don't mean what they say
They don't say what they mean
She reads the signs, reads between the lines
But it makes no difference
There's no reason or rhyme
Just hold on girl, as long as you can
In time you'll learn what you don't understand
It's the human condition, it's the nature of man

CHORUS:
Everybody's crazy, everybody's crazy
Everybody's crazy, everybody's crazy

This city boy, he don't want no control
He just wanna party and play his rock 'n' roll
But here they come to turn the pressure on
Say'n son, your partyin' days are gone

The time has come now to be a man
Find your place in the world, gotta take what you can
You've got no ambition, take a look at yourself
When ya gonna straighten out, be like everybody else

The boy said listen dad, you're bringin' me down
I am who I am, I've had a good look around
There's one thing in the world I can tell you I've found

CHORUS:

There ain't no wonder things are so outta hand
Sooner or later, ya come to understand
The human condition, it's the nature of man

CHORUS:

19. Call My Name

You and I sailed away to a place
We once called paradise
We were young and deep in our love
And we never needed lies

So here we stand face to face
Knowing we've drifted apart
As for myself, there'll be nobody else
Who'll ever touch this place in my heart

CHORUS:
You just call my name
And I'll come runnin' for you in the night
Just call my name
And I'll come runnin' right back into your life
If you ever need my love, call my name

Will ya call the love we shared
Just a moment passing in time
It was a moment I can never forget
And a love that was so hard to find

There are no chains to hold you down
I told you a long time ago
If the time has come for movin' on
There's one thing I need you to know

CHORUS:

If you feel you need my love
And it's time we start over again

CHORUS:

20. (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay

Sittin' in the morning sun,
I'll be sittin when the even comes
I watchin as the ships come in
And watch 'em roll away again..
Sittin on the dock of the bay,
Watchin' the tide roll away,
Sittin on the dock of the bay,wasting time...
Left my home in Georgia,
Headed for the 'Frisco bay,
I have nothing to live for,
like nothings gonna pass my way..
I'm a just a sittin at the dock of the bay,
Watchin' the tide roll away,
Sittin on the dock of the bay,wasting time...
A Mistake,nothings ever gonna change,
every day,everything'll make up my mind.
I can do what ten people tell me to do
I'll get down on my knees and pray..
A Mistake,nothings ever gonna change,
every day,everything'll make up my mind.
I can do what ten people tell me to do
I'll get down on my knees and pray..
I'm sittin' and restin' my bones,
loneliness won't leave me alone,
Two thousand miles from home,
Just to make this deck my home..
Sittin on the dock of the bay,
Watchin' the tide roll away,
Sittin on the dock of the bay,wasting time...
Sittin on the dock of the bay,
Watchin' the tide roll away,
Sittin on the dock of the bay,wasting time..
Sittin' on the dock of the bay...
