Track Name: Go On
I forgot to tell you,
I found a new love...
Though we're still together...
Yes, there's still us

We both knew our love was dying
So don't act surprised
I knew you were loving him
though you told me lies

I saw you kiss him
Try to act like you're friends
But any man knows the difference
Between the tongue and lips

Go on!(go on)
Leave(leave)
It's over(it's all over)
Go on(go on)
Leave (leave)
It's over (it's all over)
Track Name: Give A Damn
oooo) (oooo) (oooo) (oooo)

Verse 1
I love you, but you don't give a damn
I need you, you gotta understand (gotta understand yes)
I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for this chance (aahoooo)
just to give you, give you, give you all that I have

(Bsection)
So, I'm telling you that I will never give up(never give up, never give up)
I've been dreaming of you
Promise you my love is enough for you(yes it's enough for you)

But you don't give a damn
Don't give a damn
You don't give a damn

Verse 2
I ain't got a lot of money
No fancy ride
But I got a heart to love you till the day I die
I ain't got no perfect body
But I sure will love you right(love you right)
I ain't leaving(leaving), gonna stay right here(stay right here)
Gonna show you what real lovin' is all about

(Bsection)
I'll get down on one knee
Give you this ring to prove to you
I'll be faithful to you
Better to you than any man
Hey...You don't give a damn
Don't give a damn
Don't give a damn if I, if I sacrifice my life for you
Don't give a damn if I, if I bleed for you
Don't give a damn if I, if I give you my heart
(Don't give a damn, Don't give a damn, Don't give a damn, Don't give a damn )
Track Name: Patience
Verse 1
You've gotten on my last nerve
And I don't know how much longer I can take it
So I'm gonna try, try to love you
Unconditionally...but I need someone to help me

Chorus
Lord give me some Patience! (Patience)
Patience to love you (patience to love you)
Patience to deal with us (deal with us)
Cause you know we need it (we need to)

Lord give me some Patience! (Patience)
Patience to hear you(ooooo)
Patience to make this work (make this work)
Cause you know I love you(I love you, I love you, I love you)

Verse 2
And I, I know I got faults too
Didn't say I was perfect
But I know this is worth it
Well you and me,
We've gotta work this thing together
Can't let nobody break us
Baby we gotta work this

Chorus
So Lord give me some Patience! (Patience)
Patience to love you (patience to love you)
Patience to deal with us (deal with us)
Cause you know we need it (we need to)

Lord give me some Patience! (Patience)
Patience to hear you(ooooo)
You know we can work this thing together baby (make this work)
Cause you know I love you(I love you, I love you, I love you)
Break it down Break it down

Bridge

One and two cause I'm in love with you
I'm gonna give you all I got just to prove to you
You gotta meet me half way, you gotta do your part
We gotta pray and believe, just like we did from the start
Now if this loving wasn't meant to be,
Well at least we did our best and we'll set it all free
So I'll keep on loving you, till I can't no more
And if this love doesn't work, we leave it at the door

Lord give me some Patience! (Patience)
Patience to love you (patience to love you)
Patience to deal with us (deal with us)
Cause you know we need it (we need to)

Lord give me some Patience! (Patience)
Patience to hear you(ooooo)
Patience to make this work (make this work)
Cause you know I love you(I love you, I love you, I love you)
Track Name: Same Page
Never on the same page….

For some strange reason
We never can get on the same page
It's always somebody's hot
And somebody's cold
Why can we stay together?

Talking bout how you want a good man
Someone to keep ya, hold you love ya
Talking about a good man
A provider, a lover...one who's faithful
One who will love you unconditionally
One who will give you everything...

Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on back
Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on back home to me
Track Name: Don't Leave Me
Verse 1
It's two o'clock in the morning
And you aint home yet
Why did you run away?
Yes, baby I have some regret

What I said yesterday
I apologize
You just made me mad

So can we talk about this?
Make some sense of this?
You know we don't agree
On everything

I know I hurt you when I said to you I'm tired of
You're selfish ways
Guess I am selfish too
For wanting you to change
Oh ooo forgive me babe...
I didn't mean to hurt you...

Chorus
So Don't Leave me Baby
Please Don't Leave me baby
I said Don't Leave me Baby
Oh Don't Leave me Baby

Verse 2
Now baby in relationships,
Yes, we're gonna fuss and fight
But in the end we make love
Yes, we'll make love

So don't you wanna, let it go
Set it all free
So please don't leave me, oh no baby don't leave

Bridge/Break down
Oh you say one thing
I say another
Why can't we just agree
I'm in this love forever
I told you I'd never leave
,So, unpack those bags and sit right here
Let's talk this love through
Cause I can't live my life on earth without you!

Chorus
So Don't Leave me Baby
Please Don't Leave me baby
I said Don't Leave me Baby
Oh Don't Leave me Baby

I need you to come on home (Come on home) repeat 4 times.

Chorus vamp out

Track Name: Heart Breaks
Tired of waking up in the morning feeling like this…

hmmmmm...
Heart breaks in the morning
My heart aches this morning
What did I do to you to treat me this way?
What did I do to cause this pain?

Chorus vamp out
You give me... (heart ache, heart ache and pain)
(You give me heart ache, heart ache and pain)
Track Name: Ace of Hearts
Chorus
This time I play the fool ooooo...
This time you win I lose oooo....

Verse 1
What if I never loved you
That would be a shame
And what if you never knew it
Then loving me would be, be in vain

But I'd never do you like that
I'd tell you the truth
I even wrote you a love song baby
Confessing my heart to the world for you
This time....

Chorus
This time I play the fool ooooo...You played the Ace of Hearts baby oooo.
This time you win I lose oooo....You played the Ace of Hearts baby oooo.

Verse 2
Sitting here by my window
Thinking how could this be
My friends tried to warn me about you
But my heart just refuse to believe

You lied you cheated
Now I'm torn up inside
Even though my heart is broken
Still yearning for you love, your love tonight
This time...

Chorus
This time I play the fool ooooo...You played the Ace of Hearts baby oooo.
This time you win I lose oooo....You played the Ace of Hearts baby oooo.

Bridge
Some say I'm foolish
Some say I'm dumb
For having a heart to love you
Some say I'm crazy
They even say I'm naïve
But I can't help but to love you....
I cared for you, loved you, give to you baby oh!
This time....

Chorus Vamp out
Track Name: Think It Over
(ooooo) (oooooo) (ooooo)
Verse 1
Well I've been doing, doing some thinking
Thinking about loving, loving you again
I won't tell a lie, this thought is scaring me
I don't know if it's right

Well you know that my heart
Has been broken torn into pieces
I don't know if I can do this
It was you (it was you) that left my heart bleeding(left my heart bleeding)
Now here you come begging for another chance (another chance)

Chorus
So let me think it over(let me think it over)
So let me think it over(let me think it over)
So let me think it over(let me think it over)
So let me think it over(let me think it over)

Verse 2
See I'm not sure
If you are the one for me (the one for me)
I still feel the residue of you (the residue)
I've been trying to forget you

You played with my love (yes, you played it)
And you knew that I trusted you (I trusted you)
Just give me sometime to think about it
I'm just a little bit confused

So why should I reconsider?
And why should I even care?
Do you really think you deserve a second chance?
Do you really think that it's even fair?

Chorus
So let me think it over(let me think it over)
So let me think it over(let me think it over)
So let me think it over(let me think it over)
So let me think it over(let me think it over)
Track Name: To My Father
I know you don't love me
So let's stop pretending
I've given all that I've had but
It's just not working

Life has been so hard for me
As I've journeyed through this world
Time after time I tried to be there for you
But you only walked away

I know you don't love me
So let's stop pretending
We both know I never mattered to you but
I'll be okay

I'm still dealing with the hurt
Still dealing with the shame
Still dealing with the heartache
Dealing with the pain

I know you don't love me
So let's stop pretending
I gave everything that I had, but it's just not working
Track Name: Lesson Learned
Verse 1
Momma always told me to listen
Listen to my heart
She never told me loving would be easy
from the start

I know better now that I'm older,
I'm wiser, yes I am
But still I had to put my finger in the fire
To experience it for myself

Chorus
Oh well I learned my lesson( yes I learned my lesson)
Yes I learned my lesson(yes I learned my lesson)
Yes I learned my lesson...You can't make nobody love you
You gotta love yourself first

Verse 2
Now Grandma always said you better slow down
I kept on running in circles
I wish I'd taken heed to all her wisdom
Back in the days when I fell in love with you

She said you better be careful with your heart
There might be a storm there in all of that beauty
So let them prove to want you a little bit more
There might be a chance to open the door.

Chorus
Oh well I learned my lesson( yes I learned my lesson)
Yes I learned my lesson(yes I learned my lesson)
Yes I learned my lesson...You can't make nobody love you
Can't make nobody love ya

Bridge
Hey ooooo (don't you know that love is blind)
Hey Hey Hey hey (they say true love is hard to find)

Chorus Vamp out
Learn my lesson, I've learned, I've learned
Track Name: Back To Me
Verse 1
The hurt, the hurt, the hurt
Ain't like it use to be...no ...oh no
My life is better, since we've parted

The pain, the pain, the pain
No more bleeding inside for me
I made the choice to let it go oh set it free

The lies, you told those lies
All those lies you told to me
I forgive you, what good would it do for me to hate you?

Chorus
Cause I'm healing, healing
Dark days are over
I'm loving me again
Yes, I'm giving, giving
My heart, my mind, my soul, my body
Back to me...back for the first time

Verse 2
The rain, the rain, the rain
Oh it's flooding my brain
Left me crippled, insane
Drowning in your sea

Oh, The wind, the wind, the wind
Oh it blew too hard for me
You took my breath away,
Wherever you blow, I'd sway

Bridge
Somehow I met you
Was captured by your charm
So eager to please you
Nothing else mattered
Your happiness was my all

Chorus
I'm healing, healing
Dark days are over
I'm loving me again
I'm giving, giving
My heart, my mind, my soul, my body
Back to me...back for the first time
back to me, back to me, back to me
back to me, back to me, back to me
back to me, back to me oh....
