You're Not Easy to Forget
By Cynthia Weil & Tom Snow

Everyone's saying it's for the best and I shouldn't be feeling so depressed
Everyone's telling me I'll be fine and all that it takes is time
They say I should get my heart in hand
But nobody seems to understand

That you're not easy to forget, seems no matter what I do
I just can't seem to remember I'm not in love with you
You're not easy to forget, I've been trying everyday
But your memory keeps getting in my way

Ever since you've been gone I find not a day goes by you don't cross my mind
Then when I close my eyes it seems, there you are, running through my dreams
When somebody tries to take your place
I just look at her and see your face

'Cause you're not easy to forget, seems no matter what I do
I just can't seem to remember I'm not in love with you
You're not easy to forget, I've been trying everyday
But your memory keeps getting in my way

There's no getting into getting over you
After all we've been though
I just can't get the knack
Of not wanting you back

'Cause you're not easy to forget, seems no matter what I do
I just can't seem to remember I'm not in love with you
You're not easy to forget, I've been trying everyday
But your memory keeps getting in my way

You're not easy to forget ...



The Love She Found in Me
By B. Morrison & D. Linde

She looked into a heart so sad
And saw what no one ever had
Beneath the snow she saw the spring
She finds good in everything

Give her thorns and she'll find the roses
Give her sand and she'll find the sea
Give her rain and she'll find the rainbows
Just see the love she's found in me
Just see the love she's found in me

She looks beneath each tear that's cried
And somehow sees the sunny side
Even on the darkest night
She knows where to find the light

Give her thorns and she'll find the roses
Give her sand and she'll find the sea
Give her rain and she'll find the rainbows
Just see the love she's found in me
Just see the love she's found in me

When the world starts closing in
She gives me strength to smile again

Give her thorns and she'll find the roses
Give her sand and she'll find the sea
Give her rain and she'll find the rainbows
Just see the love she's found in me
Just see the love she's found in me



Rosalee
By Stuart Harris

Rosalee, why do you look at love so carefully
Where is the sultry smile I used to see
So clearly in your eyes

Rosalee, who took from you the fire I used to see
The one that made me fall so desperately
In love with you, Rosalee

There's no time for contemplating
For the night is waiting for you and me
Soon you'll be my lover
When the night is over I know you will see
That you are fire
You are a miracle to me
Can't you see

Remember when you'd only call me when you'd need a friend
Never caring when the night would end
Ah do you remember, Rosalee

Now and then, do you ever long for those sweet nights again
Just come with me and let the love begin
And smile for me, Rosalee



The Power (This Love Has Over Me)
By A. Williams & D. Williams

I tell myself it's wrong to think of you
I say that I am strong and I'll make it through
But no matter what I claim
I still feel the same 'bout loving you

Oh the power this love has over me
It's taken control of my heart
Oh the power this love was over me
It doesn't let go and it's tearing me apart

Well I know that I should try forgetting you
But I still wonder why not wanting to
So I hold on to this pain
I know I'm the one to blame for loving you

Oh the power this love has over me
It's taken control of my heart
Oh the power this love was over me
It doesn't let go and it's tearing me apart

Why do I always end up this way
I know I've known for a long, long time
We will never be together
So why do I cry

Oh the power this love has over me
It's taken control of my heart
Oh the power this love was over me
It doesn't let go and it's tearing me apart



I Can't Get to You From Here
By F.O. Knipe & S.D. Chandler

I'm glad you called me, I still feel your voice
Touch something inside me but I have no choice
But to tell you I'm no longer one of boys
And I can't get to you from here

Now I don't think you'd know me to see me up close
I've built me a family and I don't like to boast
But I'm all settled into what I need the most
And I can't get to you from here

I can't turn back the years
And get crazy again with nothing to fear
Easy as that might appear
I can't turn my back on the love living here

I only bet when I've got all the cards
I don't take on all comers when they come on too hard
I'm a daddy and a voter and I go to bed tired
And I can't get to you from here

I can't turn back the years
And get crazy again with nothing to fear
Easy as that might appear
I can't turn my back on the love living here

Well I'm glad you called but it's sad in a way
To still fell the flame when there's nothing to say
The world we once lived in's now so far away
That I can't get to you from here
No I can't get to you from here



Home Free
By Michael McDonald & Michael Johnson

Maybe I'm crazy but I'm only
Trying to relate when there's nothing to say
Maybe I'm lazy but I'm trying
Maybe I'm lonely and I don't know the way

What's the reason for this sudden change I'm feeling
I never thought that I would act so strange
Believe me, oh believe me babe

Feelin' like I'm home free
There's no more need for running
Baby I'm home free, it's just you and me
Home free
There's no where to be leavin'
Baby I'm home free, it's just you and me

Maybe I'm leaning but I'm all right
Maybe I'm losing but I won't play the game
Maybe I'm dreaming but it seems like
I'm living in a love that I lose everyday

What's the reason for this sudden change I'm feeling
I never thought that I would act so strange
Believe me, oh believe me babe

Feelin' like I'm home free
There's no more need for running
Baby I'm home free, it's just you and me
Baby I'm home free
There's no where to be leavin'
Baby I'm home free, it's just you and me

Oh baby I'm home free
There's no need for running
Baby I'm home free
Home Free



Just One Look
By Tom Snow & F. Golde

I guess you know me better than I've ever known myself
Funny how advise is always good for someone else
You say you know what's right for me is not always right for you
You're a sculptor, a believer, and I'm the living proof

Just one look in my eyes tells the story
Just one look in my eyes gives me away
And it does no good to hide
Cause I know that I'll confide in you anyway

I wish that you could see yourself the way that you see me
Maybe then you wouldn't be your own worst enemy
Loving you's a habit I don't have the strength to break
And I don't have to tell you, you'll see what I can't say

Just one look in my eyes tells the story
Just one look in my eyes gives me away
And it does no good to hide
Cause I know that I'll confide in you anyway

We go through all the motions as if nothing were at stake
What's the good of that when you can't give and you can't take
I looked to you for happiness, depended on your strength
But I've learned that if it's not my own, then yours won't take the place

Just one look in my eyes tells the story
Just one look in my eyes gives me away
And it does no good to hide
Cause I know that I'll confide in you anyway



Love Me Like the Last Time
By R. Van Hoy & Dan Seals

Oh my love, now that you're here by me
I can see it in your eyes that the feeling is growing
This old world is so full of uncertainties
And as hard as we both try, we don't know where it's going

So love me like the last time
We could ever be together
Let's make it like the last time
As if this world wouldn't be here tomorrow

There are times when we tell ourselves we're safe
And it's so easy to believe it will be never ending
But I know even though we feel this way
There can be no guarantee in a world that keeps changing

So love me like the last time
We could ever be together
Let's make it like the last time
As if this world wouldn't be here tomorrow
Forever and always

If tomorrow it falls, then tomorrow it falls
It won't matter at all, it won't matter at all

So love me like the last time
We could ever be together
Let's make it like the last time
Then make it last forever



Leave It Alone
By Michael Johnson & Bill LaBounty

Girl, don't let him take your pride
Be good to yourself
You need courage to smile
Cause you let him break your heart
Now get him off your mind
Or it'll tear you apart

Leave it alone
It's not gonna go away for awhile
Give it some time, get used to the sky
It's gonna be gray for a while

I don't like to see you cry
I wanna help you forget
And kiss the tears from your eyes
Cause I think you've had enough
It's gonna take more than a night
For you to fall out of love

Leave it alone
It's not gonna go away for awhile
Give it some time, get used to the sky
It's gonna be gray for a while

There's nothing like a heartache, cause girl, I know
Nothing like a sad song, let the feelings show

Oh leave it alone
It's not gonna go away for awhile
Give it some time, get used to the sky
It's gonna be gray for a while



Let Me Go Back Home
By Scott McCarl

Memories fill me
On lonely, empty nights
A light that burns on
Then dims and it's gone
Retreating into time

So fill me, memory
And hold me while I cry
And let me believe you never will leave
And take me back
Take me back

Let me go back home
Let the days past live on
Maybe I'm crazy
But who wouldn't like to go back home

Memories haunt me
On certain, special nights
The boy that became the man of today
Comes running back
To laugh with me

Let me go back home
Let the days past live on
Maybe I'm crazy
But who wouldn't like to go back home
