I’ve been waiting
To tell you that I fell in love
I’ve been waiting
To stop running from
These fears I have
Fears won’t do me any good

I try to hold my head high
Keep my worries inside
Let my smile do the talking
Cause I can’t lose
Another one like you

Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo
Yah, yah, yah, yah, yah

Don’t lead me astray
Come on good man
Don’t take my heart away
Come on good man
Come on good man
Come on good man
And be with me today

Be with me today, be with me today,
Be with me today
Be with me today, be with me today,
Be with me today

And so I’ll leave you
To carry on your way
If you chose to go
Or if you chose to stay
I’ll be right here
Ain’t got no place to be
I’ll be right here
I won’t leave
I won’t leave
I won’t leave
I won’t leave

So come on good man
Don’t lead me astray
Come on good man
Don’t take my heart away
Come on good man
Come on good man
Come on good man
And be with me today

Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo
Yah, yah, yah, yah, yah
Ooo, ooo, ooo

Track Name: Didn't You Know
I wanted to kiss you
Before I met you
I wanted to love you
Before I knew you
I wanted to take you
Home with me
Yah, didn’t you know?

See I wanted to show you
You were better than the rest
I wanted to show you
That you'd passed the test
I wanted to make you
Mine that night
Didn’t you know

Oh didn’t you, didn’t you know
I wanted you to myself
All to myself
All to myself

See I’d been searching
But now that search is through
And all this dreaming
It’s always been about you
But time, time wasn’t wasted
I was waiting on you

Didn't you, didn’t you
Didn’t you know
I wanted you to myself
All to myself
All to myself

Oh you got me
Oh you got me
You do
Oh you got me
Oh you got me
You do
Said oh you got me
Oh you got me
You do
You do

I wanted you to myself
All to myself
All to myself

I wanted you to myself
I wanted you to myself
I wanted you to myself

Yah yah, mm mm
Yah yah
Track Name: Wasting Days
I’ve been wasting all my days away lately
I’ve been wasting all my days away
I’ve been wasting all my days
Wishin that just maybe
A nice strong man will come my way

See I’ve been waiting for a little help
I’ve been waiting for a little help
My garden needs ploughing and I need some new wood shelves
Won’t you, won’t you come on by my house

Cause it’s been a long year
It’s been a long, long year

So I’ve been sitting here twiddling my thumbs
Wondering if one day I’ll find someone
Cause life’s been hard and time’s gone fast
And I keep seeming to back track
To where I don’t want to belong

So they keep saying it’s time to move on
They keep saying it’s time to move on
But they ain’t been through what I have
Seen what I’ve done or where I’ve been
They don’t know why I go at this alone
They don’t know why I go at this alone

Cause it’s been a long year
It’s been a long, long year

Bah ba da, ba ba ba day
Bah ba da, ba ba woah
Bah ba da, ba ba ba day
Bah ba ba ba ba
Here I go

Cause it’s been a long year
It’s been a long, long year

So come now everybody
Come walk with me
Hold on everybody
Oh hold me tight
Yah, come now everybody
Come walk with me
Hold on everybody
Oh hold me tight

Cause it’s been a long year
It’s been a long, long year
Cause it’s been a long year
It’s been a long, long year

So I’ve been waiting for a little change lately
I’ve been waiting for a little change
Someone who’ll come my way
Help me oh day to day
Brighten up this world of mine
Brighten up this world of mine
Track Name: Crazy About You
I’m just so crazy about you and everything that you do
You have put me in a daze with all the sweet words that you say
So I cannot hide this smile
No more

And so they say that I’m falling
And I think that I’m falling
They say that I’m falling
And I think that I’m falling
They say that I’m falling
I’m falling in love again

Oh and you could do no, no wrong, no wrong
I only need you by my side
I’ve had a crush on you since our first night
So I cannot hide this smile
No more

And so they say that I’m falling
And I think that I’m falling
Yes they say that I’m falling
And I think that I’m falling
They say that I’m falling
I’m falling in love again

Shoe be do do wap
Shoe be do do wap
Shoe be do do wap
N day day n day day yah

Ooo ooo ooo, yah yah yah
Oooo, hey hey

You wake me up with kisses
You make me feel so good
You lay me down at night
Like no one ever could
So don’t go, don’t go
Don’t go, don’t go
Don’t go, don’t go
Cause I don’t, want no one but you

And so they say that I’m falling
And I think that I’m falling
They say that I’m falling
And I think that I’m falling
They say that I’m falling
I’m falling in love again

Yes they say that I’m falling
And I think that I’m falling
They say that I’m falling
And I think that I’m falling
They say that I’m falling
They say I’m falling,
I know I’m falling,
In love again
Track Name: Leaving Today
As I walk along
As I walk along
I wonder
Why, why, I'd wait for you
Cause all them other boys
They love me more than you

And it breaks my heart
My heart was broken every day
I was waiting around
For you to change your ways
But what was the use
I might as well say goodbye

So don’t try to help me
Don't try to call me
And don’t try to lure me back your way
Don’t take a long time
You ain’t got a short while
In fact I’m leaving today
I’m leaving today

Now as time passes
as time passes
it’s all clear
You were never gonna give me
All that I deserved
But now I ain't got to worry
Ain’t got to worry no more

So don’t try to help me
Don't try to call me
Don’t try to lure me back your way
Don’t take a long time
You ain’t got a short while
In fact I’m leaving today
I’m leaving today
I’m leaving today

Cause there I was, heart broken
But loving you still
Now here I stand,
Ain’t contemplating no more
My life with out you,
Cause I’ll be fine

So don’t try to help me
Don't try to call me
Don’t try to lure me back your way
Don’t take a long time
You ain’t got a short while
In fact I’m leaving today
I’m leaving today
I’m leaving today
I’m leaving today
I’m leaving today

Oh yes I will
Because I must
So I will
Because I must
And so I will
I’ll say goodbye
