Track Name: Silver Light
The saddest thing I ever heard
Is you don't love me like you could
The little room
Too small for two
Is now just big enough for you

The saddest thing I ever saw
Is you don't love me anymore
The silver light
Run down the wall
Then out the door and down the hall

The saddest thing I ever felt
You gave me up for someone else
Am I like him?
Is he like me?
A lonesome soul that you can't see?
Track Name: Like a Storm
What I feel
I can't say
But what I feel is here to stay

Oh my Love
It's like a storm
It gets you cold to keep you warm

What I say to you I mean it to the end
I believe in you could be my all-time friend

(repeat)
Track Name: Song of Love
Sing
Sing a sad song
To break your heart
To break your heart

But this
This is a new song
A song of love
And that's a start

And so I'll take you to the bad side of the town
Kiss your shoulders and then let it all hang down
Say a prayer and light a candle in the sand...
Hey, Lorrie--
I wanna hold your hand
Track Name: Goodnight
We'll hold on for one more day
Now there's nothing left to say
Close the door, turn out the light
Now it's time to say goodnight

So Goodnight... so Goodnight...

And I guess that I'm to blame
That you'll never feel the same
But I don't know what I did wrong--
We're together but you're alone

So Goodnight... so Goodnight...
Track Name: Say Goodbye
When you say goodbye
It's so hard to do
But when your love has died
You say goodbye

When I met you baby
We were standin' all alone
And I tried to make it
But I'm almost gone

Ask somebody who knows--
It's not easy at the end
Ask somebody who knows--
It's not easy to lose a friend
Track Name: One Eye Open
One eye open
One eye closed
One heart broken
One left whole
oh-o-oh

You're so pretty
You're so sweet
S'why'd you cry (do you cry?)
Each time we meet?
oh-o-oh
Track Name: Long Night
The night is long
Too long for feelin' this way
Too long for feelin' this way long

I know I know
I know I'll never be the
I know I'll never be the same

And when I sleep
I toss and turn and dream of
I toss and turn and dream of you

I know I know
I know I'll never be the
I know I'll never be the same
Track Name: Hourglass
Sit and stare into the hourglass
Sit and starin' and the days are driftin' past
So what do you see?
What do you see?
What do you see when you see me?

Sit and stare into the hourglass
Sit and starin' and the sands are shiftin' fast
So what could you be?
What could you be?
What could you be if you were free
From me?

Sit and star into the hourglass
Sit and starin' and the sands are shiftin' fast
So what do you see?
What could you be?
Oh, what could you be if you were free
From me?

Oh, what could you be if you were free?
Track Name: Thirty-Six
You don't know which way to go
There's just one thing I think you should know

I always want you by my side
I'm never gonna change my mind

Oh, oh, oh-o-oh

You don't know which way to go
There's just one thing I think you should know

I never felt this way before
And now I want you even more

Oh, oh, oh-o-oh
Oh, oh, oh-o-oh
Track Name: June My Dear
June my dear
The warmest month of the year
In a sunny room we'll
We'll spend the day your way

Why can't you see?
You're so special to me
With your laughter and your tears
And the sunlight in your hair
