Pretty Girls Don't Cry

(Chris Isaak)

Pretty girls don't cry
They know exactly what they want
Pretty girls walk by
With eyes that smile, faces that haunt

I watch them walk, I wonder
Turn away, I try but I can't find words to say
I know that you don't love me
But I'm watching you

Pretty girls don't cry
They know exactly what to do
Pretty girls walk by
But they won't ever smile at you

I watch them walk, I wonder
Turn away, I try but I can't find words to say
I know that you don't love me
But I'm watching you

Pretty girls don't cry
They know exactly what they want
Pretty girls walk by
With eyes that smile, faces that haunt

I watch them walk, I wonder
Turn away, I try but I can't find words to say
I know you've heard it all before
But I'm watching you
I'm watching you
I'm watching you

Back on Your Side

(Chris Isaak)

You can talk about true love, say we're through.
And I do my best pretending I, don't love you.
But when they put you down, they're always surprised, cause' then I'm.
Back on your side, back on your side, back on your side baby I'm, I'm back on your side.

And it was friends who told me stories from the start.
But I'm not listening now, I'm listening to my heart.
And no one blames you, if you really don't believe but baby I'm,
Back on your side, back on your side, back on your side baby I'm, I'm back on your side.

You know I've always loved you and I always will.
You know I've always loved you and I love you still.
Darling I'm, back on your side, back on your side defending you,
I'm back on your side I still love you, I'm back on your side.
I'm back Back on your side Darling I'm back Back on your side.
I'm back on your side, back on your side, I'm back on your side, back on your side.

Only the Lonely

(Roy Orbison Joe Melson)

Only the lonely, know the way I feel tonight.
Only the lonely, know this feeling ain't right.

There goes my baby, there goes my heart, they're gone forever, they're so far apart.
But only the lonely, know why I cry. Only the lonely, only the lonely.

Only the lonely, know the heartaches I've been through.
Only the lonely, know I've cried and cried for you.

Maybe tomorrow, a new romance, no more sorrow, but that's the chance.
You got to take,
If you lonely heart breaks. Only the lonely, only the lonely, only the lonely.

South of the Border (Down Mexico Way)

(Jimmy Kennedy Michael Carr)

South of the border, down Mexico way
That's where I fell in love where stars above, came out to play.
And now as I wonder, my thoughts ever stray
South of the border, down Mexico way.

She was a picture, in old spanish ways
Just for a tender while I kissed the smile, upon her face.
For it was fiesta, and love had its day
South of the border, down Mexico way.

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay (Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay)
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay (Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay)

Then she sighed as she whispered manana, never dreaming that we were parting
And I lied as I whispered manana, for our tomorrow never came.

South of the border, I rode back one day.
There in a veil of white by candlelight, she kneeled to pray.
The mission bells told me, that I shouldn't stay
South of the border, down Mexico way.

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay (Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay)
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay (Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay)
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay (Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay)
Good bye good bye.

I Wonder

(Chris Isaak)

When I was younger, I believed that dreams came true
Now, I wonder
'cause I have seen much more of dark skies than blue
Now, I wonder

I keep on praying for a blue sky
I keep on searching through the rain
I keep on thinking of the good times
Will they ever come again?
Now, I wonder
Now, I wonder

I keep on praying for a blue sky
I keep on searching through the rain
I keep on thinking of the good times
Will they ever come again?
Now, I wonder
Now, I wonder

When I was younger, I believed that I could win
Now, I wonder
There was a time when you and I walked hand in hand
Now, I wonder

I keep on searching for the old me
I keep on thinking I can change
I keep on hoping for a new day
Will I ever feel the same?
Now, I wonder
Oh, I wonder
Now, I wonder

Wrong to Love You

(Chris Isaak)

Little girl whispers, stranger come home.
Sad little eyes, so much to say.
Oh what a game, little girls play and it must be,

Wrong to love you like I do. It must be,
Wrong to love you like I do.

Little girl talking, Can't stand her spell.
Little girl moving, moving slowly.
I can hear music, sounds so far away.
I can hear voices, I know just what they say it must be,

Wrong to love you like I do. It must be,
Wrong to love you like I do.

My head goes a round and round, my heart come a tumbling down.
Your hot kisses only makes me know it's true.
Your hot loving only makes me think of you it must be.

Do I Do I
There will be no song of love there will be no sweet refrain.
There will be no soft goodbye or slow walk in the rain.
There will be no whispered words no vows that can't come true.
There's only me waiting here for you and it must be,

Wrong to love you like I do. It must be,
Wrong to love you like I do.
Wrong to love you ( Wrong to Love You)....
Like I do.
Do I do I Do I Do I
I do

Waiting for My Lucky Day

(Chris Isaak)

I watched the sun roll down in Texas
Out on the edge of town in Texas.
I keep on hanging round in Texas
Waiting for my lucky day.

Lost everything I had in Texas.
A million dreams went by in Texas.
Sometimes the same life turns against us.
But I'm waiting for my lucky day.

I watch the sun go down, I keep hanging on waiting for the wind to change.
I watch the sun go down, And I keep hanging on, I know it's coming up again.

The friends I had are all gone in Texas.
Sometimes you stand alone in Texas.
Just when it all goes wrong in Texas.
I'm waiting for my lucky day.

I watch that sun go down, I keep hanging on, waiting for the wind to change.
I watch the sun go down, And I keep hanging on, waiting for my lucky day.
Waiting for my lucky day, waiting, for my lucky day.

Yellow Bird

(Norman Luboff Alan Bergman)

Yellow bird, up high in banana tree.
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.

Did your lady friend leave the nest again?
That is very sad, makes me feel so bad.
You can fly away, in the sky away.
You're more lucky than me.

I also had a pretty girl, she's not with me today.
They're all the same those pretty girls.
Take tenderness, then they fly away.
Yellow Bird, yellow bird.

Did your lady friend leave the nest again?
That is very sad, makes me feel so bad.
You can fly away, in the sky away.
You're more lucky than me.

Wish that I were a yellow bird, I'd fly away with you.
But I am not a yellow bird, So here I sit.
Nothing I can do.
Yellow bird, yellow bird

Two Hearts

(Chris Isaak)

No stars in the sky, the night seems so dark around you.
You won't say a word, and wonder why no one's found you,
Waiting for love, praying for love again

Love's a heavy weight, give it to me don't hesitate.
Love's a heavy thing, too heavy for one heart to bring me your love.
Give me your love again, it's not your fault.
One heart can never win it takes.

Two hearts, two hearts just to hold love.
Two hearts, two hearts just to hold your lo-o-o-o-o-ve.
Your lo-o-o-o-o-ve.

And if your heart should ache,
Remember me.
And if your heart should break.

Two hearts, two hearts they can mend it.
Heartache, heartaches can be ended by love, by love.

Love's a heavy weight, give to me don't hesitate.
Love's a heavy thing, too heavy for one heart to bring me your love.
Give me your love again, It's not too late.
One heart can never win, it takes two hearts.

Two hearts, two hearts just to hold love
Two hearts, two hearts just to hold your lo-o-o-o-o-ve
Your lo-o-o-o-o-ve.

Return to Me

(Carmen Lombardo Danny DiMinno)

Return to me, oh my dear I'm so lonely.
Hurry back, hurry back, oh my love I'm yours.
Return to me, for my heart wants you only.
Hurry home, hurry home, won't you please hurry home to my heart?

My darling, if I've hurt you I'm sorry.
Forgive me, and please say you'll be mine.
Return to me, come back belamia.
Hurry back, hurry home, to my arms to my lips to my heart.

Oh my darling. If I've hurt you I'm sorry.
Forgive me, and please say you'll be mine.
Return to me, caramia di amor, so lo tu, so lo tu, so lo tu, mi amor.

Dancin'

(Chris Isaak)

I keep on dancin', dancin'.
Nothing left to say, nothing left to do.
I find myself alone, I'm thinking just of you.
You got me dancin', dancin'.
Why don't you help me? Why don't you guide me?
Why don't you promise? To stand beside me.

There was a man in a foreign land, in love with a woman that didn't understand.
Love is not a thing you command, love is something that keeps you and keeps you.
Dancin', dancin'.
Why don't you help me? Why don't you guide me?
Why don't you promise? To stand beside me.

I keep on dancin', dancin'.
Nothing left to say, nothing left to do.
I find myself alone, thinking just of you.
You've got me dancin', dancin'.
Why don't you help me? Why don't you guide me?
Why don't you promise? To stand beside me.

Dancin', dancin', dancin', you've got me, ohhhh, help me!
Guide me, why don't you promise, to stand beside me.
Help me, ohhhh!

Sweet Leilani

(Harry Owens)

Sweet Leilani, heavenly flower oh.
I dreamt of paradise for two. (My lovely Leilani)
You are my paradise completed. (My lovely Leilani)
You are my dream come true.

Sweet Leilani, heavenly flower oh,
Tropic skies are jealous while they shine. (My lovely Leilani)
I think they're jealous of your blue eyes. (My lovely Leilani)
Jealous because you're mine.

I think they're jealous of your blue eyes. (My lovely Leilani)
Jealous because you're mine.

Sweet Leilani, heavenly flower oh,
Nature's fashion roses kissed with dew. (My lovely Leilani)
And then she placed them in a bower. (My lovely Leilani)
It was the start of you.
My lovely Lei-lan-i

Think of Tomorrow

(Chris Isaak)

The future looks so bright ahead, the past is far behind.
I think of all the things we said, and you are on my mind.
Think of tomorrow. Think of tomorrow.

Mexico has sunny skies, Hawaii knows no rain.
Any place you want sweetheart, I will buy the ring.
Think of tomorrow. Think of tomorrow.

Anything you want sweetheart, anything you do.
Anywhere you go sweetheart, I will follow you.
Think of tomorrow. Think of tomorrow.

Think of tomorrow. Think of tomorrow.

This car I drive is old and beat, it may not see me through.
This car I drive is fine with me, it's headed back to you.
Think of tomorrow. Think of tomorrow.
