SHE’S LETTING GO
(from the album Sentimetal, vocals by Jeff Scott Soto)
 
Why does it hurt so bad to be in love
When you think it’s love
You never know if it’s you she’s thinking of
What you thinking of
 
Out of time
I’m running out of time
Out of love
She’s giving up on love
 
Oh, don’t say it’s so
She’s letting go
She’ll say it’s over when she wants to
She’s letting go
 
Don’t try to change her mind
It will only push her further away
Don’t try to stop her from walking out the door
Cuz she doesn’t want to stay
 
Out of time
I’m running out of time
Out of love
I’m giving up on love
 
Oh, don’t say it’s so
She’s letting go
She’ll say it’s over when she wants to
She’s letting go
 
She’s got the power
She’s got the heart of steel
She’s got the reason to make her love seem real
I know that this time she’ll never change her mind
Turn back the clock and leaver her far behind
 
Oh, don’t say it’s so
She’s letting go
She’ll say it’s over when she wants to
She’s letting go
 
 
 
STRANDED
(from the album Sentimetal, vocals by Jeff Scott Soto)
 
Everytime I catch myself I’m thinking of you
I see your face in the sky, the stars and the moon
I lose my cool whenever you come around
I tremble with fear when your voice makes a sound
Then I hit the ground
 
Every glance you paralize me
Every chance you sneak another by me
 
But I’m stranded, stranded
I don’t know what to do
Cuz I’m stranded, stranded
by the thought of you
Thought of you
 
All the pain dissapears everytime you are near
You’re my fantasy and my darkest fear
In the dead of the night your name I call
Though I don’t know who you are at all
 
Every stare I’m taken by ya
You pull me in and you take me even higher
 
Yes I’m stranded, stranded
For a little while
Yes I’m stranded, stranded
By the touch of your smile
But I’m stranded, stranded
My senses growing numb
Cuz I’m stranded, stranded
Afraid to fall in love
Fall in love
 
How much longer till we break the silence
I feel the tension build and build inside us
 
Yes I’m stranded, stranded
I don’t know what to do
Yes I’m stranded, stranded
By the thought of you
But I’m stranded, stranded
My senses growing numb
Cuz I’m stranded, stranded
Afraid to fall in love
Fall in love
 
 
I GUESS I’M STILL IN LOVE
(from the album Sentimetal, vocals by Jeff Scott Soto)
 
Why do I sit by the phone night after night
Wanting to talk to you
I don’t know
Why do I drive your house
Up and down the block
Wanting to see you
 
I don’t know why I feel this way
I can’t explain why it remains
 
I guess I’m still in love
Even after getting used to being without you
I guess I’m still in love
After all these years I’m thinking
Why can’t you be here with me
 
Why do I search through my mail day after day
Hoping to hear from you
I don’t know
Why do I still hear your voice everytime I dream
Still I have no clue
 
I don’t know what it’s coming to
What can I do
I’m not over you
 
I guess I’m still in love
Even after getting used to being without you
I guess I’m still in love
After all these years I’m thinking
Why can’t you be here with me
 
Why do I feel this way
I can’t explain
Why it remains
 
I guess I’m still in love
Even after getting used to being without you
I guess I’m still in love
After all these years I’m thinking
Why can’t I have you
 
I guess I’m still in love
Even after getting used to being without you
I guess I’m still in love
After all these years I’m thinking
Why can’t you be here with me
 
 
 
DON’T COME CRYING TO ME
(from the album Playthings)
 
It’s not enough to treat you like gold
What do you want me to do
It’s killing me that your heart’s so cold
With your love that’s untrue
You stabbed me one too many times
In the back of my heart
With someone else’s love
That should have stopped from the start
 
Don’t come crawling back
When you realize he’s no good for you
Don’t say you want me back
Cuz maybe I don’t want you
 
Don’t come crying to me
You had your chance and you threw it away
Don’t come crying to me
Save it for another prey
Don’t come crying to me
It’s not love but an agony
Don’t come crying to me
Now I’ve set you free
 
It’s not enough to give my love
What do you want me to be
You had me locked inside your heart
And ran away with the key
I try to get you out of my head
But you don’t wanna leave
Someday I’ll find someone
Who’s love won’t decieve
 
Don’t come crawling back
When you realize he’s no good for you
Don’t say you want me back
Cuz maybe I don’t want you
 
Don’t come crying to me
You had your chance and you threw it away
Don’t come crying to me
Save it for another prey
Don’t come crying to me
After all that we’ve been through
Don’t come crying to me
Cuz now I’m over you
 
Don’t come crying to me
You had your chance and you threw it away
Don’t come crying to me
Save it for another prey
Don’t come crying to me
After all that we’ve been through
Don’t come crying to me
Cuz now I’m over you
 
Don’t come crying to me
You had your chance and you threw it away
Don’t come crying to me
Save it for another prey
Don’t come crying to me
Don’t come crying
Don’t come crying to me
Don’t come crying to me
 
 
 
DO YOU STILL…
(from the album Playthings)
 
It’s hard to tell sometimes
Now I’m miles way from you
It’s hard to take the distance
Don’t let this mean we’re through
Baby give me a sign to show that you still care
Am I losing my mind
Is your love still there
 
Stay with me
Keep me in mind
We’ll hold each other again in time
 
Do you still love me
Do you still care
Do you still think of me when I’m not there
Do you still hold me inside of your heart
Do you still love me now that we’re apart
 
The days grow hot and longer
The night are so cold
My heart is ever lonely
But you inside it holds
Time won’t give us time together
It keeps slipping away
Come back baby stay forever
Don’t waste another day
 
Stay with me
Keep me in mind
We’ll hold each other again in time
 
Do you still love me
Do you still care
Do you still think of me when I’m not there
Do you still hold me inside of your heart
Do you still love me now that we’re apart
 
Do you still love me
Do you still care
Do you still think of me when I’m not there
Do you still hold me inside of your heart
Do you still love me now that we’re
 
Do you still love me
Do you still care
Do you still think of me when I’m not there
Do you still hold me inside of your heart
Do you still love me now that we’re apart
Apart
 
 
 
THIS MIGHT BE THE LAST TIME
(from the album Playthings)
 
Every night I stare out the window
Pray to God to stop the pain
Cuz everytime I touch, you feel nothing
I can see you drufting away
More and more
Day by day
I had to get my heart in the way
 
Oh
I feel I’ve got to let you know
I don’t want to let you go
Baby
 
This might be the last time
I’ll hold you in my arms
This might be the last time
Don’t fade away
This might be the last time
I’ll hold you in my arms
This might be the last time
Don’t fade away
 
It’s hurting us to stay together
Knowing that we’ll end someday
All along I had to let you go
The memories will last a lifetime
Thought we had to end this way
There’ll always be a place for you inside me
 
Oh
I feel I’ve got to let you know
I’ve got to let you go
Baby
 
This might be the last time
I’ll hold you in my arms
This might be the last time
Don’t fade away
This might be the last time
I’ll hold you in my arms
This might be the last time
Don’t fade away
It’s better off this way
 
Oh
I feel I’ve got to let you know
I’ve got to let you go
 
This might be the last time
I’ll hold you in my arms
This might be the last time
Don’t fade away
This might be the last time
I’ll hold you in my arms
This might be the last time
Don’t fade away
 
 
 
 
BEHIND MY BACK

(from the album B-Sides Myself)
 
Things I hear
Always contradicting with your truth
How much time do you need
To come up with another alibi
All your friends try to restore my faith in you
All of mine ask me why the hell I even waste my time
 
I can’t take no more of the circumstances I’ve been given
I’m gonne leave you in time cuz
There is no trust
 
I wanna know what you’re doing behind my back
I wanna know what you’re seeing behind my back
I wanna know when and why and who you’re seeing behind my back
 
Tell me why you’re dying to see me then you never show
Games of the mind
It makes me wonder if there’s something I don’t know
I don’t know
 
I can’t take no more of the things I’ve been hearing
I’m gonne draw the line cuz
There is no trust
 
I wanna know what you’re doing behind my back
I wanna know what you’re seeing behind my back
I wanna know when and why and who you’re seeing behind my back
 
Soo when the feelings start to fade away
I’d rather there’d be nothing left to say
In the warmth of your heart
I’ve felt a chill
What I don’t know won’t hurt me
But when I find out it will
 
I can’t take no more of the circumstances I’ve been given
I’m gonne draw the line cuz
There is no trust
There is no trust
 
I wanna know
I wanna know what you’re doing behind my back
I wanna know what you’re seeing behind my back
Yeah
I wanna know what you’re doing behind my back
I wanna know what you’re seeing behind my back
I wanna know when and why and who you’re seeing
I wanna know
I’ve gotta know
I wanna know what the hel you think you’re doing behind my back
 
 
 
LEFT IN THE DARK
(from the album B-Sides Myself)
 
You disrespect my wishes
You complicate my life
You keep your secrets well
Until I have to pry
You love to see me beg for more
 
You disregard my feelings
Like I’m not even here
Maybe a normal life
Could be what you fear
So what am I hanging around for
 
You lead me on
I’ll be your pawn
Don’t take too long
I’m left in the dark
You lied to me
So set me free
Stop hurtung me
I’m left in the dark
 
You neglect my emotions
Like it’s all part of a game
The white line brings your sunshine
While I walk in the rain
Everyday I take another guess
 
You never talk to me
You never look at me
You couldn’t stand to hurt me
If you told me the truth
Every day I trust you even less
 
I’ll draw the line
Kiss it all goodbye
I’ve spent too much time
Left in the dark
There is no trust
There is no us
From dawn till dusk
I’m left in the dark
 
I haven’t seen you in a week
How can I possibly think that things are ok
I can’t forgive you nor forget
You make me too upset
There’s nothing more to say
Cuz I don’t love you
 
You lead me on
I’ll be your pawn
Don’t take too long
I’m left in the dark
I’ll draw the line
Kiss it all goodbye
I’ve spent too much time
Left in the dark
There is no trust
There is no us
From dawn till dusk
I’m left in the dark
 
 
 
ONLY YOU KNOW
(from the album B-Sides Myself)
 
Since when do the days go so slow
I’ve lost your love and my self control
 
But you heart isn’t sure what it’s saying
So you keep a distance there
I’ll tell you what mine’s relaying
You can see it in my stare
 
Only you know the way to love me
Only you know the way to make me see
Only you know the way to love me
Only you can take the pain away from me
 
There’s got to be a better way
To fall out of love without the pain
 
So your mind has changed it heart
Only to protect yourself
It’s tearing me apart
Giving me a life in hell
 
Only you know the way to love me
Only you know the way to make me see
Only you know the way to love me
Only you can take the pain away from me
 
Only you know the way to love me
Only you know the way to make me see
Only you know the way to love me
Only you can take the pain away from me
 
 
 
 
BREATHING YOU IN
(from the album Dramatically Acoustic)
 
All my life I’ve wanted to feel this again
Hold me close
Secure me
Begin
Racing thoughts defy me how selfish I have been
Can I hold this moment
My heart against your skin
 
I’m breathing you in
I live for the chance to taste your soul
I’m breathing you in to my heart
And I won’t let you go
 
I’ll sleep a wink if I’m lucky
When you’re not next to me
I’m persistant in my venture
Someday you will see
 
I’m breathing you in
I’ll you the chance to take it all
I’m breathing you in so you know
That I wont let you go
 
It scare I admit to put your heart in someones hands
But in time you will see it’s the safest it has been
 
Can I ask a favor
I’d hate to burden you
Break the wall around your heart
So you can breathe me too
 
I’m breathing you in
And I can’t understand why it hurts so much
I’m breathing you in and I can’t
Just can’t get enough
I’m breathing you in
I life for the chance to taste your soul
I’m breathing you in to my heart
And I won’t
I won’t let you go
 
 
 
 
I WON’T BE HERE
(from the album Dramatically Acoustic)
 
Hiways will lead my way to you
I could leave today
But would you want me to
You always claimed forever and a day
So what would you say if I could find a way
 
He never meant to hurt you
But the facts are all still there
So if your heart decides to change your mind
You know youy’ve just lost a friend in me
 
I won’t here for you when you need me
I won’t be here for you when you call
I won’t be hanging around anymore
 
Lately as time is crawling by
I think of you to try to find a reason why
Oh baby, if someday you’re betrayed
Don’t cry to me
I’ve got my own pain
 
You never meant to hurt me
Cuz the feelings are still there
But If my words imply a change a heart
Because I’ve just lost my friend in you
 
I won’t here for you when you need me
I won’t be here for you when you call
I won’t be waiting around anymore
 
I never meant to hurt you
In fact I never will
But now you’re gone and left us both alone
And neither one can pretend that it’s real
 
I won’t here for you when you need me
I won’t be here for you when you call
I won’t be wasting my time anymore
I won’t here for you when you need me
I won’t be here for you when you call
I won’t be hanging around anymore
No I wont be here for you
I won’t be here for you
I won’t be here
I won’t be here for you
I won’t be hanging around anymore
Yeah
