Empty Place

Written By: Bob Farrell, Brian Yost

AN EMPTY PLACE

It’s an empty place
When I walk through the door
I look around
I don’t see you anymore

There’s an empty space
On this wall in front of me
Where picture of our memories
Used to be

Chorus:
Each night when I lay down
And you’re not by my side
I still feel the love we made
It’s tearing up my life
It’s an empty place

It’s an empty place
It’s where I used to feel
It’s filled with only echoes
Of what I thought was real

But it’s the only place
Where you will always be
A room that’s locked inside of me
It’s you that holds the key

Chorus:
Each night when I lay down
And you’re not by my side
I still feel the love we made
It’s tearing up my life
It’s an empty place

(Chorus)
It’s an empty place

I Don't Want To Like You

Written By: Bob Farrell

You must have the bluest eyes I’ve seen
And I might watch the way you walk away in those blue jeans
You must be the sweetest man
That I have ever met
But don’t start making future plans
I’m not ready for that yet

(Chorus)
I don’t want to like you
I can make it on my own
I don’t want to need you
I’m doing fine alone
It doesn’t mean a thing
That you are all I can think of
I don’t want to like you
So why am I in love

It’s true I like the roses that you bring
And yes, I like to sit by you and listen to you sing
The way that you hold me tight
That look deep in your eyes
Just because you make me smile
Doesn’t mean what it implies

(Chorus)
I don’t want to like you
I can make it on my own
I don’t want to need you
I’m doing fine alone
It doesn’t mean a thing
That you are all I can think of
I don’t want to like you
So why am I in love

Instrumental break

(Chorus)
I don’t want to like you
I can make it on my own
I don’t want to need you
I’m doing fine alone
It doesn’t mean a thing
That you are all I can think of
I don’t want to like you
So why am I in love

I Won't Be Waiting By The Phone

Written By: Bob Farrell

I need a day or two
Some time to be alone
That’s what you said some time ago
Now weeks have come and gone
There is something that I think
You really ought to know
I won’t be waiting by the phone

(Chorus)
I won’t be on the sofa curled up with a book
I may not even be alone
You kept me hanging on but now I’m off the hook
And I won’t be waiting by the phone

When you finally realize
You had the best of everything
You can call my number
But it’s only gonna ring
I used to be your little girl
But your little girl has grown
And I won’t be waiting by the phone

(Chorus)
I won’t be on the sofa curled up with a book
I may not even be alone
You kept me hanging on but now I’m off the hook
And I won’t be waiting by the phone

(Bridge)
You may even hear that I am tearing up the town
I’m having too much fun
No need to settle down

(Chorus)
I won’t be on the sofa curled up with a book
I may not even be alone
You kept me hanging on but now I’m off the hook
And I won’t be waiting by the phone

I Couldn't Spend Enough Time With You

Written By: Bob Farrell

I sent you red roses ‘cause I couldn’t be near you
I called you on the phone - Ooh, just to hear your voice
It puts a smile on my face
I love the way that you pull your hair back
And how you hug that soft teddy bear I brought you
Wish I could be in his place
If you’re still not sure how I feel about you
I don’t wanna spend one minute without you

(Chorus)
I couldn’t spend enough time with you
If there were twenty-eight hours a day
I love all the things you do
And how you do them in your own way
Every word that I say is true
I couldn’t spend enough time with you

A table for two with one candle burning
Music down low, everything turning out just right
It’s what I’ve got planned
I bought a diamond ring just to show you how I feel
The look in your eyes will tell me this loves real, Baby
I’ll slip the ring on your hand
If you’re still not sure how I feel about you
I don’t wanna spend one minute without you

(Chorus)
I couldn’t spend enough time with you
If there were twenty-eight hours a day
I love all the things you do
And how you do them in your own way
Every word that I say is true
I couldn’t spend enough time with you

That's Something I Learned

Written By: Bob Farrell

Hey there’s my heart it’s been gone for, oh, so long
I didn’t think it would ever return
I was walking talking proof that a man can live without one
But you need one to love
That’s something I learned

You walked into my life and my heart started racing
The passion that I felt was like a fever that burned
I called you right away because I had to see your face again
You’ve got to ask if you want
That’s something I learned

(Chorus)
Now I want to learn how you feel in my arms
Waking up with you by my side
Now I want to learn all the little things about you
And share all of my life, with you
Mmm

Instrumental

(Chorus)
Now I want to learn how you feel in my arms
Waking up with you by my side
Now I want to learn all the little things about you
And share all of my life

Hey here’s my heart, and it’s only wanting you now
Look in my eyes and you’ll see it confirmed
If you want to be in love with a man who will adore you
Just kiss me one time, and that’s something you’ll learn
Something you’ll learn
Oooh, something you’ll learn
Ooooh

Then There's Days

Written By: Bob Farrell, Brian Yost, Jim Callahan

There’s no blame, who’s right or wrong
It wasn’t something we had counted on
Somewhere our dreams seemed to fall apart
Each day I pick up pieces of my heart

(Chorus)
There’s loves you win and loves you lose
I lost the best when I lost you
And loving you was more than just a game
There’s days I’m fine, and then there’s days

I took the nightshift just to stay alive
Those late night hours keep you off my mind
I find the weekends are the hardest times
That’s when I seem to break right down and cry

(Chorus)
There’s loves you win and loves you lose
I lost the best when I lost you
And loving you was more than just a game
There’s days I’m fine, and then there’s days

(Bridge)
I try to fight it
To keep your memory from haunting me
But deep inside
I know it’s never gonna set me free

(Chorus)
There’s loves you win and loves you lose
I lost the best when I lost you
And loving you was more than just a game
There’s days I’m fine, and then there’s days
(Tag)
Loving you was more than just a game
There’s days I’m fine, and then there’s days
