Feel

Danny Orton / Blair Daly

 

So everybody's pulling you in all directions
You don't know how much longer to take it
So you've learned how to fake it

That smile on the outside's fading fast
Like the things that you thought for sure would last
But they didn't
You know something's missing
Is it your life you're not living?

Chorus:
Your heart is cold, your soul is numb
You don't like who you've become
You played the game and paid the cost for long enough
So grab the reins, yeah, take the wheel
Lose what's not and keep what's real
It's not too late,
Just close your eyes and feel, feel

You can't tell if you're happy or sad
Can't tell the good from bad
It's senseless
To waste your senses
Maybe stop thinking with your head
Start using your heart instead
Just try it
You just might like it
Aren't you dying to start livin'?

(Chorus)

Every breath that's going thru you
Take each day that's given to you
To love back the ones who love you

(Chorus)

You can't tell if you're happy or sad
Can't tell the good from the bad
Feel and stop thinking with your head
Start using your heart instead

Your heart is cold, your soul is numb
Yeah, yeah, yeah….
You’ve played the game for long enough, oh, no, no,
Everybody’s pulling you in all directions.

 
 
 

King Of Might Have Been

Greg Barnbill / Jason Scheff / Dennis Matkosky

 

What have I done?
And why do people run away
From what they really want?
She… she was the one
I know it now, just like a blind man
feels the setting sun.

Once Upon A Time
I had everything I ever wanted
Everything I'd need
The more she tried to give me
The more I took for granted
Her majesty, and I can’t believe…

Chorus:
Oh, it’s really over now
And I’ve got to live without
The love I’ll never have again

If this is what losing means
Well, then I’ve lost everything
Now I’m the… King of Might Have Been.

I’m all alone
With a hundred percent of nothing now
Just a Fool upon his throne,
She’s… she’s moving on
She’s gonna be somebody’s everything
And I hope that he knows…

That all she ever needed
Was the chance to be completed
And to feel the light of love,
What should've been, what could've been,
Doesn’t matter now
She’s history
And I can’t believe…

(Chorus)

If I could do it all again
I would never let it end
I'd fight for us
If I just had one more chance

(Chorus)

 
 
 

Caroline

Jason Scheff / Chas Sandford

 

3. CAROLINE
(Jason Scheff, Chas Sandford)
Vocals: Robert, Bill, Jason

Caroline… Caroline

There’s always people talkin'
It makes their world go round
Don’t mean you have to listen
Don’t let them get you down

Chorus:
Oh Caroline, Caroline
Everything will be just fine
Caroline, Caroline
You can work it out this time!

You know they’re only jealous
They want what they can’t have
(and they never will).
Don’t let it get your crazy
‘Cause life is just too short for that
(and that, and that, and that).

And you know it ain’t easy
But girl, you gotta let it go.

(Chorus) +
You can work it out this time / You will find out about it just in time
Caroline / Make your sun come out and let it shine
Everything will be just fine, Caroline (etc.)

(Chorus)

You will find out about it just in time
Make your sun come out and let it shine!

 
 
 

Why Can't We

Bill Champlin / Jay DeMarcus / Jason Scheff / Chas Sandford

 

[Bill sings]
Where did you go?
What happened to the life we had?
It took an unexpected turn
And even though we tried so hard
We only got so far
Oh, what did we learn?

[Shelly sings]
Another day
Another night without you here
And nothing ever seems to change
And I know I can’t escape
Because I always see your face
Every time I close my eyes

Chorus:
[Bill and Shelly sing]
If the sun can rise above us
Every single morning
If the moon can turn the tide
Of every sea
People falling in and out of love
Without a warning
They get a second chance
Then Why Can’t We?

[Bill, Shelly]
If there’s a way
To let me in your world again
And put the pieces back in place
If we take it one day at a time
Who knows what we may find
Our love never went away
And we can get stronger every day!

(Chorus)

Aren't we tired of savin' all the same old faces
And pretending that we’re better off alone
And maybe deep inside we both know that our place is
Here all along… here all along

People falling in and out of love without a warning
They get a second chance, then why can’t we?
Let’s take a second chance, and then we’ll see

 
 
 

Love Will Come Back

Jason Scheff / Jay DeMarcus / Chas Sandford)

 

I don’t love you anymore
We’ve all heard those words before
Somebody takes your heart and then
Leaves you the pieces

Lying shattered on the floor
They say that when you close a door
Another one is waiting there
For you to open... if you believe!

Chorus:
Love will come back
Hit you when you least expect it
Fill in the cracks
Of a broken heart you thought
That you could never mend
You, you can start again!

When you’re barely getting by
And it’s hard to find the strength to try
And loneliness is all you’ve known
If you let go... then you will find…

(Chorus)

Oh, when you think you’ve lost the only way
All you really need
Is a little faith

(Chorus)

Just let love return to you
You can start again!

 
 
 

Long Lost Friend

Jason Scheff / Jay DeMarcus / Brett James

 

The moment that we met
There was something so familiar
I felt like I’d known you for a thousand years
And there inside your eyes
I saw a light that I’d been missing

Somewhere deep inside
All of the lonely disappeared
And, baby, now you’re here
I feel like I have found…

Chorus:
A long lost friend
That I’ve lived for all my life
A gentle hand
A part of me I’ve been trying to find
And now you’re here
And the search comes to an end
I’ve found my long lost friend

Every move I make
Is to the rhythm of your heartbeat
Every single breath you take
You take with me

Oh, I ask myself
How did I ever live before you?
You came into my life
And put all the pieces into place
When I saw your face
I knew that I had found…

(Chorus)

Like a storm out of the blue
Love rained down on me and you
So complete and so unexpectedly
Like a movie in my mind
I’ve seen a hundred times
I feel like, I’ve loved you before…
Long Lost Friend.

Now you’re here
And the search comes to an end!

Long lost friend
That I’ve lived for all my life
A gentle hand
You’re a part of me I was dying to find
And now you’re here
And the search comes to an end…
I’ve found my long lost friend
I’ve found my long lost friend…

Oh, now I’ve found you
My lost friend… oh (etc.)

 
 
 

90 Degrees And Freezing

Robert Lamm / Jason Scheff / Jay DeMarcus / Brett James

 

Here I am
In this broken town
Missing you
Wishing you were still around

Streets are full of people, happy
Heading on their way
Why am I the only one
Who’s COLD on such a pretty day?

Chorus:
90 degrees and freezing
I’m out here on my own
I can’t shake this feeling
That I’m really all alone
The Sun way up there shining
But down here on the ground
It’s 90 degrees and freezing!

Right or wrong
This is how it is,
The love that kept me warm
Well, now it’s his…

I remember how the heat in your eyes
Helped me find my way
How can I be left so cold inside
On such a pretty day...

(Chorus)

(Chorus again)

 
 
 

Where Were You

Jason Scheff / Bill Champlin / Jay DeMarcus

 

Where were you?
When I was following someone
I should have been fallin' in love with you

I was doing all right in my own little world
Suddenly you were there
Upside down, turned around
Wasn’t looking for anything new

I've got the heart and the hand of a sweet little girl
I just have to be fair
But my heart it can’t hide
What it’s feeling inside
When it’s true

Chorus:
Where were you?
When I was following someone,
I should have been falling in love with you
And now, it’s too late!
'Cause my heart is true
I gave it away, now, I’m looking behind me
And dreaming of you
Are we stronger than fate?

I ain’t askin' you to save me
I’m a weaver of my own web
I don’t know what to do,
But just try to get on with my life

Where were you?
When I was following someone,
I should have been falling in love with you
And now, it’s too late!

'Cause my heart is true
I gave it away, now, I’m looking behind me
And dreaming of you
Are we stronger than fate?

Are we two lovers
Who found each other
Just a moment too late
Are we stronger than fate?
We'll never know!

(Chorus)

 
 
 

Already Gone

Bill Champlin / George Hawkins, Jr.

 

Baby, I may never know exactly what you’re feelin'
But I’ve seen you on another roll
Maybe I’m that last to see the glances you’ve been stealing
What you’re looking for is takin' its toll

No guarantees, so baby please
Got to keep the sugar coating to yourself
Either stay with me, or set me free
Gotta let me get myself off the shelf

I’ve been here, it’s all clear…
You’ve already gone
And I know
'Cause it shows
You’re already gone!

And you’re already gone
Down the road
All on your own
Check please, Louise
What did I expect?

And you’re already gone
Down the road
Ain’t nobody home
Check please, new squeeze
Thank you very… NEXT!

And so, now, we find ourselves
Exactly where we started
Tryin' to fall in love with somebody else
Don’t know how to play this game
And not be broken-hearted
And I can’t believe the lies I’m gonna tell

Don’t lie to me, Pinocchio
Gotta keep the sugar coating to yourself
Baby, stay with me or let me go
Gotta let me get myself off the shelf
You can’t hide, down inside
You’re already gone!

I’ll be fine in my mind
You’re already gone!

And you’re already gone, down the road
All on your own
Check please, Louise

What did I expect?

And you’re already gone, down the road
Ain’t nobody home
Check please, new squeeze
Thank you very… NEXT!

And you’re already gone, down the road
All on your own….
Check please, new squeeze
What did I expect?

And you’re already gone, down the road
All on your own….
Check please, new squeeze
Thank you very…. Next!

And you’re already gone, down the road
All on your own….
Check please, Louise
What did I expect from you
Baby, baby, baby

And you’re already gone, down the road
Ain’t nobody home
Check please, new squeeze
Check please!

I wants to thank you all very [next-es-es]

 
 
 

Come To Me, Do

Robert Lamm

 

Come to me, lonely
Come to me, blue
Come to me, weary
Come to me, do!
Yeah, yeah…

I will refresh you
Come to me, do
Come to me, often
I'll come to you
I'll come to you

Always in my heart
Always a song
This is the good part
You’ll always know where you belong

Come to me, darling
Ooh, baby
Come to me, darling

Come to me, happy
Come to me, bad
Come to me, looking
What you ain’t had

I will sustain you
Come to me, do
Come to me, often
I come to you
I come to you

You are the kind one
I’ve waited so long
How does one find one?
You always know where you belong

Come to me, darling
Ooh, ooh, baby
Come to me, darling

Come to me, darling
Come to me, darling
Come to me, darling….

 
 
 

Lovin' Chains

Jay DeMarcus / Marcus Hummon

 

Moved out west just to get away
Miles of sky and empty space
Mirrors my soul
I’m out here on my own

I got a new job and a couple new friends
There’s even someone special,
I think I could start again
But every time we touch
It reminds me of us, and…

Chorus:
Every time I close my eyes
To go to sleep at night
I wake up and I see your face
Even in my dreams
I can’t get anyplace
I can’t shake off your lovin’ chains
Your lovin’ chains…

So I moved back east just to face my tears
To say what needs sayin’ before you disappear
But old friends say you’re gone
Long since moved on, now…

(Chorus)

I think I’m never gonna climb this mountain
Of my feelings for you
I’m gonna have to live here in your shadow
Until the skies are no longer blue!

(Chorus)

 
 
 

Better

Bill Champlin / Chas Sandford

 

You can count on a number of things
Like tomorrow the sun’s gonna shine
There’ll be flowers in spring time
Poets will make rhymes
Couples in moonlight are so ripe to fall

Fallin' in love, such a natural thing
There’s a look in that one person’s eyes
And the moment we know it
We don’t want to blow it
So we get way too careful and it all slips away

You’ve always told me
You can do better
And something would always come along,
And so I listened, down to the letter
'Til somebody better came along

You… you can do better
Talkin' to you, you, you, you…
You gotta do better!

Now I feel like I’m swimming upstream
When the current is running so strong
I’m a fish out of water
The first time I saw you
Couldn’t keep it together
Don’t care if I’m wrong
But it seems like forever
Since we got along

You’ve always told me
You can do better
And something would always come along
And so I listened, down to the letter
'Til somebody better came along

You said it so often
You thought I’d believe it
That I was always doin’ it wrong,
But you always said that
You could take it or leave it
So, somebody better came along!

(Repeat last two verses)

You… You can do better, better.
Talkin’ to you, you, you…
You gotta do better!
