I WANT YOU BACK AGAIN I woke up to the ringing of the telephone long distance from Atlanta to my bed We must have had some kind of bad connection I don't believe I heard the words you said was it loneliness or only just the change of season there isn't any reason to pretend I had to tell you that my life is not the same without you thinking more about you and I want you back again I took out the pieces of your letter and put it all together one more time and though I tried to find the hidden meaning you made it hard to read between the lines was it loneliness or only just the change of season there isn't any reason to pretend I had to tell you that my life is not the same without you thinking more about you and I want you back again So meet me at the station we'll walk along the shore and spend the night together and maybe nothing more but please don't close the door For now I’ll sing this lonesome song to no one I wish I could forget about it all but I find myself staring at your picture How long have I been talking to the wall was it loneliness or only just the change of season there isn't any reason to pretend I had to tell you that my life is not the same without you thinking more about you and I want you back again

The Song That Made Me Cry I was home alone at four A.M. waiting for the night to end with a weariness that no sleep could satisfy the time was passing much too slow so I turned on the radio 'twas then I heard the song that made me cry Please Mr. record man won't you try and understand I don't know what it's called or who it's by but it's something about a girl in the rain and it has a very sad refrain help me find the song that made me cry well it hit me to my heart and made me wonder why when I heard the song that made me cry Thanks again I gotta go and get back to my radio maybe they will play it by and by and I'll go over every line I hope it means as much this time when I hear the song that made me cry it made me cry oh I can hear it now it made me cry

THINK IT OVER There was a time when I really didn't know my place I was just about to lose another race I worried so much about the troubles that we all must face my days were lonely and my nightd were blue then you came along to see me thru You filled my life with lovin' that was hard to find and made the world go easy on my mind but things have changed and I'm feelin' kind of left behind would you go and turn your back on me after givin' your love so free (CHORUS) Take the time and Think It Over just listen to your heart and if we have to part just say goodbye and I won't try to change your mind but Think It Over one more time Everyone's entitled to a point of view but some folks think I don't deserve to be with you well nevermind what your freinds'll tell you to do there ain't nothin' like a freind in need baby baby won't you hear my plea (CHORUS) Take the time and Think It Over just think of all we've done and if that feelin's gone just say goodbye and I won't try to change your mind but Think It Over one more time (Sando) © Sandbag Music

I Cry 02:22
I CRY It's a funny day so I pull my shade I think of you in a funny way I walk the floor and even more I Cry There's a place I know I sometimes go I force a smile and say hello I drink to you and when I'm through I Cry What makes me lock out the sunlight What makes me close my eyes The memory of that one night fades but never dies If I were you and you were me you'd know how lonesome life can be I'm torn in half and when I laugh I Cry What makes me lock out the sunlight What makes me close my eyes The memory of that one night fades but never dies

Trying To Get To You I've seen lots of pretty girls some were good and some were bad and I've come to realize you're the best I've ever had and I'm Trying To Get To You Baby I'm Trying To Get To You I'm Trying To Get To You before it's too late Right from the very start you were always by my side I had to find out for myself now I'm puttin' away my pride and I'm Trying To Get To You Baby I'm Trying To Get To You I'm Trying To Get To You before it's too late And if by chance you hear this song before I reach you Please forgive me what I've done Yea I know that I was wrong Did you cry for me at night did you miss me for awhile have you found somebody new is he walking you down the aisle and I'm Trying To Get To You Baby I'm Trying To Get To You I'm Trying To Get To You before it's too late

BABY PLEASE COME HOME Since you've been gone my world is just an empty shell my freinds they come around wondering where's the guy they knew so well yes I've changed girl I don't know who I am only you can understand and you're not here (CHORUS) Baby, Please Come Home I can't make it on my own you've been gone too long Baby Baby Please Come Home I must be mad to play a losing game this way but maybe in this song I could catch the love I threw away can't you see my whole life is hinged on you tell me what am I to do without you near (CHORUS) Baby, Please Come Home I can't make it on my own you've been gone too long Baby Baby Please Come Home You were here and I was somewhere out in the blue Now you're there and I'm back here calling for you (REPEAT CHORUS) Music and Lyrics by Peter Sando ©1992 Sandbag Music

Torn Apart 04:08
TORN APART Almost forgotten when I saw you yesterday It's still the same old feelin' when we touch We know there's no tomorrow and we can't go on this way 'cause now and then can never be enough Girl it’s so unfair when you compare my love to his I never thought you could be bought I never knew we'd come to this Torn apart looking at a brand new start I thought all along I was the only one Love is blind how could I believe your line How was I to know I'd be the lonely one You never even told me I never even asked I guess I knew the answer all along You took me for granted now I'm taking you to task there isn't any use in holding on Girl it’s so unfair when you compare my love to his I never thought you could be bought I never knew we'd come to this REAPEAT REFRAIN

Don't Stop Now Life is so hard it's a bigger bite than we can chew Girl it's up to me and you to keep trying no more crying Our love is so strong and I realize we have dug in deep but the fruits of love can be ours to keep if we choose it we won't lose it Don't stop now you can take all of the money just keep on lovin' me honey Don't stop now I'd be lost if we parted let's finish what we started The best is yet to come there's more to this than meets the eye if we set our hearts and let them fly together it's now or never Don't stop now you can take all of the money just keep on loving me honey Don't stop now and I know we'll be winning it's only the beginning Music and Lyrics by Peter Sando ©1992 Sandbag Music

YOU'VE GOT THE LOVE Everytime she walks down the street All the birdies go tweet tweet tweet Long blonde hair flowin’ down her back just one look give me a heart attack You’ve got the love that I want You've got the love that I need You've got the love that I want You've got the love that I need Tell me baby what you want me to do Call my name I'll come runnin’ to you Lots of fishes in the deep blue sea but no one else could ever satisfy me You’ve got the love that I want You've got the love that I need You've got the love that I want You've got the love that I need You’re too much you look so fine you got me goin’ I’m a’losin’ my mind Bedroom eyes dress so tight just one look and I can see the light You’ve got the love that I want You've got the love that I need You've got the love that I want You've got the love that I need
