Don't Stand Another Chance

(Barnes, Jackson, Jackson)

Standin' at the edge of time 'bout to lose my mind
'cause you try to take him away from me, I won't let it be
You just walk into my life and try to take away my only prize
But you better give credit 'cause his love is right here for me

You don't stand another chance
You don't stand another chance
You don't stand another chance
You don't stand another chance

He belongs to me, just wait and see
Take him in my arms, give him love, not too much of me
Nothin' you can do or say to make him look your way
So you better give credit 'cause it's gonna come walking my way

You don't stand another chance
You don't stand another chance (Ohh)
You don't stand another chance (You don't stand baby)
You don't stand another chance (You don't stand)
You don't stand another chance

Sit and wait at home 'bout to leave me alone (I know baby)
You'll be with him when he's up, not down, to keep him on the ground
Let me tell you something, it's true, he's not in love with you
So you better give credit 'cause it's nothing coming down your way

You don't stand another chance (Not a chance, baby)
You don't stand another chance (You don't stand, baby)
You don't stand another chance (Baby)
You don't stand another chance (You don't stand)

Well, you know somebody's gotta lose
We all can't win... maybe next time, okay
You guys are confusing

You don't stand another chance (You don't stand)
You don't stand another chance (You don't stand, baby)
You don't stand another chance (You don't stand, baby)
You don't stand another chance (Another chance)

Two to the Power of Love

(Beckett, Kipner)

I know we just met, but I feel like I've known you before

But something about you my heart has been searching

I don't understand it, it's over my head

So don't try to solve it, just feel it instead. ooh

It isn't really such a mystery
Anyway you add it up it turns out to be
Attraction automatic, a simple mathematics
Two to the power of love

I look in your eyes and everything falls into place

You don't have to say it, it's written all over your face

By my calculation, I'm falling for you

It's a perfect equation

And I know that it's true

It isn't really such a mystery
Anyway you add it up it turns out to be
Attraction automatic, a simple mathematics
Two to the power of love

It's complicated, but it's easy to see
A combination that was meant to be
It's something you can count on

It isn't really such a mystery
Anyway you add it up it turns out to be
Attraction automatic, a simple mathematics
Two to the power of love

It isn't really just a shot in the dark
Somebody must've worked it out on the chart
Attraction automatic, a simple mathematics
Two to the power of love

Pretty Boy

(Johnson)

Every girl, I know, wants a pretty man, uh huh
Every minute goes by, I still need your lovin' hand, oh no
I like ones that talk, no noise, baby, uh huh
I like you, you're such a pretty choice, uh huh

I like to play for you
You're such a pretty toy
Please let me play for you
You're such a pretty boy
Yes you are, yes you are, baby
Everybody knows, yes you are
Yes you are, baby

Love to take you in my arms
Share my secrets, to know my charm
You look so fine, I can't trust myself, baby
I'll do anything for you,
If you promise not to tell

I like to play for you
You're such a pretty toy
Please let me play for you
You're such a pretty boy
Yes you are, yes you are, baby
Everybody knows, yes you are
Yes you are, baby

Sing it up, ooh
All I want is a pretty toy
All I need is a pretty boy
Yes you are, ooh, baby
Listen, I don't want your money
But I do need your honey
Then again, I'll take anything you've got
I think it's kind of funny
When you spend my money
But it's all right 'cause
You make me high pretty baby
Yes you are, yes you are, baby
Everybody knows, yes you are
Yes you are, babe
Get up

1... 2... 1, 2, 3, 4
Play your funky horn
Play your funky horn

Dream Street

(Barrow, Bellotte, Shenale)

And a bus comes in on the hollywood freeway in the dark
A face catches sight of home, though at this spirited town
Such a beating of the heart and a hope deep down inside
They say the streets are paved with gold
But it sure looks kind of cold outside

Steppin' on the sidewalk with the stars beneath her feet
Just a handful of tourists, is all she's bound to meet
So tough to find a room and it takes more than a day
And it's not too nice and the price is high
Somehow she can't help but cry
In a world full of fantasies, reality can hurt
It's about the fiction, the odds won't go with her on

Dream street, dream street
Will it all come true? will it all just fade away
Dream street, dream street
Well, it's hard to find and
It won't let hope escape from dream street

A year goes by, and the situation she can't stand
Came to be an actress, but a waitress is all she lands
Her colleague smiles at her through the wrinkles of her face
She came here too, with the self-same goals
She never got out of this place

She makes her mind up, she's gonna leave that very night
It's been so long now since she's felt that good inside
She calls the service line, there's a message in there for her
She's gotta star in a movie part, suddenly it's all worthwhile
Oh a little bit closer now, but really still too far
Is it always out of reach, that bright and shiny star of

Dream street, dream street
Will it all come true? will it all just fade away
Dream street, dream street
Well, it's hard to find and
It won't let hope escape from dream street

Communication

(Eaton)

It's traveling faster than the eye can see
Information in the sky
Messages beamed across the atmosphere
Transmitted by you and I

Communication
Say the words
Are you there?
Can I be heard?
First indication
Heart to heart
Come together
Worlds apart

Oh, thank heavens for the microwave
Can't ignore technology
It's so easy to communicate
How come you're not hearin' me

Communication
Say the words
Are you there?
Can I be heard?
Station to station
Coast to coast
Face to face
Will tell you most

Now we're livin' in the computer age
The picture's on my video
I keep your number in my database
Turn it onto audio

Communication
Say the words
Are you there?
Can I be heard? (Why don't you say that you need me)
Person to person
Heart to heart
Come together
Worlds apart

Communication
Say the words
Are you there?
Can I be heard?
Station to station
Coast to coast
Face to face
Will tell you most

Communication
Say the words
Are you there?
Can I be heard?
First indication
Heart to heart
Come together
Worlds apart

Communication
Say the words (Why don't you say it babe)
Are you there? (Why don't you say it babe)
Can I be heard? (Why don't you say it babe)
Communication (Why don't you say it babe)
Heart to heart
Come together
Worlds apart
Communication

Fast Girls

(Johnson)

Fast girls are true, they're all you really need
No one that stands more responsibility
If you're afraid 'bout havin' to get too deep
Let me, baby, cure your insecurities

Fast girls, a physical attraction
Fast girls, a one on one reaction
Fast girls, true love is guaranteed
Fast girls are all you really need

Fast girls is true like angels in the mornin'
Disappear without a warning
Kinda strange that I can't deny
Sweet and fast, you'll never ever say goodbye

Fast girls, a physical attraction
Fast girls, a one on one reaction
Fast girls, true love is guaranteed
Fast girls are all you really need

Fast girls like to take your breath away
Words of love, not affairs of yesterday
If strange desires are toying with your fate
Fast love baby will never let you wait

Fast girls, a physical attraction
Fast girls, a one on one reaction
Fast girls, true love is guaranteed
Fast girls are all you really need

Hold Back the Tears

(Bliss)

So sad, but there's nothin' that I can do
Things are so bad, forget every word I've spoken to you
Love is when it touches you down inside
Why really are you lookin' for somewhere to hide

You've gotta hold back the tears
Soon you will discover maybe there could be someone who cares for you
You've gotta hold back the tears
Don't have to say never, love will come to those who are prepared

Time will never be on your side
Listen, could be your only chance to survive
This love is waiting to call you home
Don't read you'll ever be on your own

You've gotta hold back the tears
Soon you will discover maybe there could be someone who cares for you
You've gotta hold back the tears
Don't have to say never, love will come to those who are prepared

To give it back

This is all you're ever gonna be
Well, is it all worth while
There's so much that I want you to see
It could be all worth while

All My Love to You

(Jackson, Patler)

Why do you have me runnin' every night and day?
We make good lovin' and now you tell me I can't stay
I live alone and I need someone to come home to
I hope and pray that someday that it will be you

All I wanna do is give, baby, all my love to you
Ever since we've been alone
I just can't stop thinkin' of, of you
Nothing could change my mind
'cause I love the way you hold me tight
It was my very first time
Your security, I need it every night

Gonna give all my love to you, baby
That's what I'm gonna do
Gonna give all my love to you, baby
That's what I'm gonna do

Don't waste your time tellin' me not to come around
Your love for me is the only one that I have found
Don't try to hide and ignore me, drive me crazy
'cause I'm for sure you're my first love and I'm your lady

All I wanna do is give, baby, all my love to you
Ever since we've been alone
I just can't stop thinkin' of, of you
Nothing could change my mind
'cause I love the way you hold me tight
It was my very first time
Your security, I need it every night

You're tryin' to change my mind and
It's not the way I planned it to be
And it's been a very long time since
You held me close, I need you desperately

Gonna give all my love to you, baby
That's what I'm gonna do
Gonna give all my love to you, baby
That's what I'm gonna do

Nothin' will change my mind
'cause I love the way you hold me tight
And it was my very first time your security

Gonna give all my love to you, baby
That's what I'm gonna do
Gonna give all my love to you, baby
That's what I'm gonna do
Gonna give all my love to you, baby
That's what I'm gonna do
Gonna give all my love to you, baby
That's what I'm gonna do

If It Takes all Night

(Bryant, Gruska)

I've got my eyes on you
You're playin with peek-a-boo
And it's so exciting
There's such a chemistry between you and me
So there's no use fighting
Don't say, 'it's so good j'
Just give your heart away
'cause I'll find the words to say

If it takes all night
If it takes all night, honey
Gonna make you mine
If it takes all night
Gotta find a way
To get inside your heart tonight
I'll make the lovin' right
If it takes all night

I hear what people say
Love's just a game you play
For the competition
Even some friends of mine
Say that I'm wastin' time
But my heart won't listen
I know they want you too
They say I won't get through
But it will be me and you

If it takes all night
If it takes all night, honey
Gonna make you mine
If it takes all night
Gotta find a way
To get inside your heart tonight
I'll make the lovin' right
If it takes all night

I know my lover when I see him in disguise
And i won't give up 'til I see that fire in your eyes

If it takes all night
If it takes all night, honey
Gonna make you mine
If it takes all night
Gotta find a way
To get inside your heart tonight
I'll make the lovin' right
If it takes all night
