SHINE:
Track List

Nothing in this world
Seems to function without tears
You oughta' know
There's no need to pull yourself apart
Nothing you can do
seems to matter without love
You oughta' know
Everything you've got will be enough

All the things you are
Could stay locked
up inside
far from the light of day
It's much more than a matter of pride
Can't you hear them saying
Shine _ aah
Let it be a light that burns within -
Open up and

Shine - aah
Never mind the darkness closing in
You can rise above and
Shine - aah
Just close your eyes and shine

Whatever you may do
Don't forget about the little things
- small as they may seem
They all add up to someone
else's dreams
Whatever you may think
No- one wants to show you the way
- you can be the one
There's no better time to call the play

All the things you do
Will stay with you wherever you go
- no use in trying to hide
It's much more than a matter of show
All you've got to do is

Shine, etc.

Words and Music Alan Gorrie, Hamish Stuart,
Ned Doheny

OUR TIME HAS COME
Track List

Looking back on the road we left behind
I wonder just what it is we've done
Seems like we've earned the right
To throw the dice again
Let's make the pieces fit together -
as one

To be masters of our own fate
- is all we're asking for
Looks like we don't have long
to wait, no more

Now, now that our time has come
- let's take our chance right now,
Now, let's finish what we begun -
- no time to hang around
Now that our time has finally
come around

Looking ahead, just one step at a time
I think that by now we should
know enough
Seems like we've learned the way
To keep it all in line
There ain't no way that we will let
it get too tough

To be running in our own race
Is all we're asking for
Looks like we don't have long
to wait, no more

Words and Music Alan Gorrie


IF LOVE ONLY LASTS FOR ONE NIGHT
Track List

Here we are,
You and I together for the first time
- though heaven knows, I've wanted you
And I guess you knew but we just
never said,
Or never had the chance
And if love only lasts for one night
That would still be all right

If love only lasts for one night
We've got the morning to remember -
and decide
That if love only lasts for one night
We will have something
We always wanted to try

Holding you,
Seems like this is what the night
was made for
- though who can say what lies ahead
Will this flame that flickers in 
the darkness
Survive the light of day

And if love only lasts for one night, we
got the morning, oh-ooh
If love only lasts for tonight
If love only lasts for on night, we
will remember, oh yeah
If love only lasts for tonight

Words and Music Alan Gorrie


WHATCHA' GONNA DO FOR ME
Track List

All night and all day, just chippin' away
It's all in a day's work;
Tryin' hard to defend
the time that I spend alone
The ground that you lose exploiting
the blues
Won't get the job done;
Still, as deep as it bites,
I'm keepin' my sights on you

Whatcha gonna for me
What are you gonna do for me
Whatcha gonna do for me, when 
the chips are down

In the cool of the night, when
nothing seems right
The feeling can take you;
Strange as it seems,
you make your own dreams
come true
If you try to conceal the way
that you feel
You're askin' for trouble;
Just as sure as you'll cry,
I'm keepin' my eye on you

You don't have to tell me I'm
to blame for this
The thing you hold against me,
Is the thing that I miss 

Words and Music Hamish Stuart, Ned Doheny


INTO THE NIGHT
Track List

- Watch the sun go down
Darkness will invite
You and I - let's take some time
- Steal away, into the night

Into the night
Into the night

Words and Music Roger Ball, Hamish Stuart,
Alan Gorrie


LET'S GO 'ROUND AGAIN 
Track List

Baby, I'm back,
And right away I thought
I'd come to you
To see if the love that we knew before
Has passed the test of time
Time, that changes almost everything
Can sometimes let us see the better side
If the feelings we once shared

Let's go 'round again,
Maybe we'll turn back the
hands of time
Let's go 'round again - one more time

Baby, I know
that you think I will be
different now
Inside of me nothing has changed,
So I'm asking you again
Please
There's no one else that could have
brought me back
And no-one that ever could set me free
From the memory I kept within
my heart

Words and Music Alan Gorrie


HELP IS ON THE WAY
Track List

Seems to me that you've been stranded
far too long
watchin' the sands of time
trickle away,
Won't you talk to me,
Tell me what's eatin' at 'cha
Even if you don't know what to say
You know that the time is right
To turn this thing around -
it's getting closer to you
Don't give up because pain is all
you've found

Lighten up 'cos help is on the way
Have a little faith in someone new
This is not a line I'm throwin' -
Lighten up 'cos help is on the way

You and me, walking down easy
streets together
Is a dream I cannot see slippin' away
Why don't you get to me
Over this distance you've created
And I'll put you in - set you free
You know the time is right
To turn this thing around -
you're getting closer to me
Don't give up because pain is all
you've found

Words and Music David Foster, Hamish Stuart,
Alan Gorrie


FOR YOU, FOR LOVE
Track List

Love has finally come my way
You fill my every day with love,
I think I'll stay around
Your sweet love has brought new
life to me
- a pair of eyes to see
So I don't have to dream about
Loving you is changing everything
I got this song to sing,
For you, For love

Oh. girl, thank you for your smile,
Thank you for the time we're
spending
For the love that you give
Oh, girl, thank you everytime I think about 
You and I - now I live for love

My loneliness is gone
And happiness is found
With love I think I'll stay around
Your sweet love has taught me 
something new,
Has brought me home to you 
So I don't have to dream about
Loving you is changing everything
I've got this song to sing,
For you, For love

Words and Music Roger Ball, Bill Champlin


CATCH ME (BEFORE I HAVE TO TESTIFY)
Track List

I stand accused, I have designs on you
I can't reveal what I've a mind to do
I am no angel can't you see
- no wings have I
So what would you want your
man to be,
Tell me
A saint or a sinner, a little of each

Catch me before I have to testify
Don't make me give it all away
I didn't want to give the game away
- would you?

Ain't that ever true
The mystery's there to keep us hooked
- no need to do it by the book
So where would you want my strength to be,
Tell me
A friend or a lover, a little of each

Repeat Choruses

I didn't want to give my game
away to you
Don't make me give it all away
Catch me before I'm called upon
to testify
Don't make me give it all away

Alan Gorrie, Steve Ferrone, Roger Ball
