Sure Feels Like Love: Lyrics

Someone I Used To Know

Once bright eyes that used to greet me
Now locked in an empty stare
I can’t get in, to see if someone’s there
Words that once had come so easy
Now seem forced, and far away
In those rare times
When you’ve even got something to say

And I can’t believe that its you I see
Though my eyes, they swear that its so
But you look just like
Someone I used to know

Happy times from a collage
Of memories, so far away
I can’t find one
That resembles you today

And I can’t believe that its you I see
Though my eyes, they swear that its so
But you look just like
Someone I used to know

Was I so blind, was I so blind
That I didn’t even see you leave
I don’t know, the answer is lost
In a past I can’t retrieve

And I can’t believe that its you I see
Though my eyes, they swear that its so
But you look just like
Someone I used to know
Yeah, you look just like
Someone I used to know

 

Sure Feels Like Love

You say you don’t think that you love me
But you’d never know it by the way that you hold me
Your body’s tellin’ you something baby
But you’d never know it from what you’ve told me
You say I’m in it deeper than you
You just wanna be good friends
But every time that we’re together
That’s how it begins
But not how it ends

CHORUS
You can deny that we fit like a glove
You can lie about what you’re dreamin’ of
You can try to kid yourself, endlessly
But baby it sure feels like love
To me

You say you don’t think you should love me
Cause you’re been hurt too many times before
But all the games you might have lost, baby
Still don’t change this one’s score
You say I don’t understand you
You just don’t think that anyone could
But all I don’t understand is
Your acting so bad when its feeling so good
CHORUS

I’m not tryin’ to lead you on
I’m just tryin’ to lead to
A little bit of me, a little bit of love
That’s a little bit overdue

CHORUS

 

One Track Heart

Starlight eyes, sunlight smile
I’ve loved you, baby all this while
But you’re so cold and I’m so blind
Cause every time, I try to change my mind

This one track heart keeps sayin
You are where I’m stayin
There’s no use in playin games
Cause baby my one track heart
Ain’t gonna change

Stand me up, knock me out
Your power trip, ain’t what love’s about
But a closer look sees the hurt inside
A frightened girl who’s just afraid to try
So my

CHORUS

Open up
And let your guard down
I’ll always love you
I’ll never leave you
I’ll always be around

Cause my one track heart keeps sayin
You are where I’m stayin
There’s no use in playin games
Cause baby my
One track heart
Ain’t gonna change
Sure ain’t gonna change now

 

My My Maria

All around the island I have made myself
I never had the space for anyone else
But floating to me gently
Maria came to shore
And I found this island had room
For just one more
Now I say

My my, my my Maria
Dancing to the music
I never thought
Anyone else could hear
My my, my my Maria
I can hardly believe it’s true
My my, my my Maria
Can you?

Helpless, or so happy
Neither could I be
They weren’t words
You’d ever apply to me
But then nothing on this island
Will ever be the same
Like every time the earth moves
When I say her name
When I say

CHORUS

I’d have never known this wonder
Here in my own world
The joy and love that I could find
From just one girl
Like you

CHORUS

Oh my Maria

 

Change My Life

I never expected to feel this way
I never suspected I’d want to say
The things to you
That I want to
I never thought that a love could grow
From something that started out so slow
But I know how I feel
And I know that it’s for real

You make me want to change my life
You make me want to turn around
And call it lost, at any cost
And call you found
You make me want to love you more
Then anything I’ve done before
I only want to hold you tight
Each and every night
You make me want to change my life

I thought that my life was set
But you showed me that it wasn’t yet
Now I’m up in the air
But I don’t really care
Cause I’m crazy as a man can be
For you, and the thought of you loving me
Now I’ve got to know
Baby should I stay
Or should I go

CHORUS

Change my life
You make me want to
Change my life

 

Your Face

Now, has come our time to part
It’s so clear in my head and so hard for my heart
I, will love you all my life, I know you love me too
And that’s when I feel the knife

You, your love needs to roam
And my love needs you home
Your love needs, so much space
But my love needs to see
Your face

I, I reach to hold you tight,
But again you disappear, into the lonely night
I, I know the reasons why
But it doesn’t seem to help
Hold back these tears I cry

You, your love plays defense
And mine’s so damn intense
Your love needs a hiding place
But my love needs to see
Your face

You run again, I don’t know where or why
There’s only so much pain love can justify
And I can’t say, we’ll ever lose this dream
But can you stop a train
When she’s built up so much steam

You, your love needs the space
And you, your love needs a hiding place
And your love disappears sometimes, without a trace
But in any case
My love needs to see
Right in front of me
My love needs to see …

Looks like rain
Feels like rain
Surely looks like rain

Or are those just the tears
On my face
On your face

 

A Man Needs To Know

He usually won't ask
He doesn't want to look insecure
But you've gotta let him know girl
If you want to be sure
That he knows you really love him
So if you want to make sure he won't go

CHORUS

A man needs to know
That you're his woman
You need to show
That you care
So if you don't want him to think
You don't care if he stays or goes
A man needs to know

He keeps it inside
He's afraid to show he's got needs
But if you cut him through the heart girl
Believe me baby, he bleeds
He needs to hear you tell him
Even though he may never say so

CHORUS

You can take him or leave him, you can leave him alone
But don't cry that he should have known

A man needs to know that you're his woman
And you need to show that you care
So if you'd rather be happy
Then just being right
If you'd rather his arms
Be around you at night
If you want all his feelings to show
A man needs to know

 

Ghost Of A Chance

Steven I never knew you, I only know your name
And even though its not your fault, pal
There’s only you to blame
If you hadn’t died that day, I never would’ve met her
You two would be married now, and I wouldn’t be cryin’
Tryin’ to forget her

CHORUS
She was born to be with you
You were born to die too young
I was born to fall in love
With a girl too badly stung
How was I to know?
This was a hopeless romance
I never stood
A ghost of a chance

If you can’t accept the past, you’ll never want the new
Her heart’s still buried with you there
Sometimes Steve, can you believe it buddy
I wish I were you

CHORUS

Steve, I know, you wouldn’t want it this way
Is there nothing I can do?
Do you know someone to whom I can pray?
To break through the fear
Her eyes showed so clear
On the day that she told me she loved me
Like she loved you

I never stood, a ghost of a chance

 

To Kimberly

Kimberly’s lovely, dressed all in white
She sits at the bar on a Saturday night
And waits for her boyfriend who comes when he can
Get away from the wife, who would not understand
Her smile and laughter can’t quite disguise
The bittersweet sadness I see in her eyes
The days become weeks and weeks become years
And harden the heart to a place beyond tears

CHORUS
Kimberly, its better to be alone
Cause nothing’s free, but at least what you’ve got
You can call your own
Kimberly, it just seems to me
That you are what you choose
You’ll be what you’ll be
You’re too good for this
Be true to yourself

Kimberly’s lonely, dressed all in white
Alone in the bed that he visits at night
Sometimes he stays, but mostly he goes
And if she ever cries, nobody knows
The truth is the truth, and in your heart it will stay
You know you can’t change it Kimmie, by turning away
By selling your soul, by trading your pride
Before you know it baby,
Tthere’s nothing left inside

Chorus

It’s none of my business this isn’t my heart
But it’s not for a song, and this isn’t just art
You could be my siste,r you could be my friend
You could be more
Than your self imposed
Dead end

Kimberly
Its better to be alone

 

No Exit

I look to the left, I look to the right
I see no way, out tonight
I try to plead, in my defense
But I put it all together
And there’s no evidence

CHORUS
All the doors are locked, all the keys are gone
All alone out here, I’m just hanging on
All the paths are blocked, what was once so clear
There’s no exit, out of here
I can’t see no exit
So let me go

The wanderer, cannot allow
That Dion sings, gospel now
The jury pleads in my defense
But the verdict is my own
And there’s no innocence

All the doors are locked, all the keys are gone
All alone out here, I’m just hanging on
All the paths are blocked, what was once so clear
There’s no exit, out of here
So let me go
Let me go

 

Good Friends Are Hard To Find

There beside me each and every night
Purring softly as I hold him tight
Lying so that I can’t move
But I don’t mind
Good friends are hard to find

CHORUS

He’s getting older I need to worry more
He’s getting cranky, his legs are very sore
He needs more attention now
Cause time is unkind
But I don’t mind
Good friends are hard to find

By the door he’s waiting
In his eyes I see
The love he’s stating
He follows me onto that favorite chair
It’s filled with hair
I don’t care

Walking through my legs is his favorite game
And when I call, “Smoke” answers to his name
And when he goes, I know I’ll never be the same

Cause a piece of this heart will forever die
And both of these eyes will forever cry
But Smokerboy even this
Even this
I don’t mind
Cause if God gave me the chance
To never have known you,
To never have loved you
The offer would be
Between you and me
Politely, but firmly, declined
Cause good friends and best friends
And any kind of love at all in this crazy world
In this crazy world
Is just too hard to find
Do not go gentle my friend

 

I Wish You Peace

Almost every moment,
A starving person dies
In the midst of our abundance
Do we even realize?
I am among the guilty
I could do so much more
And so I make this pledge today
Of what I’m living for

I wish you peace, I wish you love
I wish you blessings from above
We can try to make this world a kinder place
There is a lot that we can do
If we make our minds up to
All the loss and tears and pain
That seek release
I wish you peace
We don’t need a miracle
Or a magic wand
One step forward gets you help
Power from beyond
God will always help us,
Relieve our brother’s pain
He helps us build a rainbow
From our brother’s rain

CHORUS

I don’t have the answers
For those I look above
But every time I ask, I hear
Its love
It all leads back to love

I wish you peace
