Lyrics

Listen to the Rain

Written By: Dan Rio

is it any wonder, we try and try again
nothin' ever turns out right, every day's another fight
we never talk it over, we just keep it all inside
cryin' sleepless nights away, prayin' for the light of day

listen to the rain fallin' on the roof
let it wash away my pain it's a healing time again
listen to the rain fallin' on the roof
let it wash away my pain let it heal me once again

when your not there to hold me, I feel so lost inside
well I dont know where to go, walkin' circles in the floor
I think about the lonely nights, all the emptiness I feel
layin' in my empty bed, there's so many more ahead

listen to the rain, fallin' on the roof
let it wash away my painlet it heal me once again
listen to the rain, fallin' on the roof
let it wash away my pain it's a healin' time again

as I sit and listen, it brings back all the years
I think about the times we had as i'm fightin' back the tears
guess we'll never know, what the future holds in store
you tell me that you've had enough, but I keep comming back for more

listen to the rain fallin' on the roof
let it wash away my pain it's a healin' time again
listen to the rain, fallin' on the roof
let it wash away my pain it's a healin time again

listen to the rain fallin' on the roof...(ad lib outro...)

Bye Bye baby

Written By: Dan Rio

Bye Bye Baby
Words & Music by Dan Rio

Well she packed her bags in the morning
said she's leaving on a midnight train
Ya know, the girl left me without any warning
Said she's driving me insane

So I gotta get a ticket to L.A.
Touchin' down on the 109...Ah yes
Hopin' I can find my baby
Cause if I don't I think I'm gonna lose my mind

This is what she said to me
So long, bye bye baby, so long
So long, bye baby

I figured out what went wrong
I had to travel 3,000 miles
Was a mystery all along
I got no more cigarettes and I got no smiles
Don't you know, baby, she broke my heart
She left me all alone
In this misery

I'm gonna find myself somebody to love
Cause if I don't, it's gonna all be left up to me
This is what she said to me
So long, bye bye baby, so long
So long, bye baby

I figured out what went wrong
I had to travel 3,000 miles
Was a mystery all along
I got no more cigarettes and I got no smiles
Don't you know that she said
So long, bye bye baby, so long
Bye bye baby, bye bye baby, bye bye baby
So long, bye bye baby, bye bye baby, bye bye baby
So long!

Soul Searchin'

Written By: Dan Rio

Sometimes I think about my brother
and all the time we had to spend
Well, I can't think of any other way
to explain that he's my best friend

Sometimes I think about another life
Lots of children and a lovely wife to come home to
Sometimes, sometimes I think about you
Oh, baby, what am I gonna do sometimes

I'm soul searchin', I'm soul searchin'

Sometimes I think about my daddy
He used to swing me upon his arms
He used to make me feel so happy
Like nothin' could have done me harm

Sometimes I think about another life
Lots of children and a lovely wife to come home to
Sometimes, sometimes I think about you
Oh, baby, what am I gonna do
Sometimes I'm soul searchin', I'm soul searchin'
I been lookin' around....oh
I'm soul searchin'....soul searchin'

Sometimes I think about another life
Lots of children and a lovely wife to come home to
Sometimes, sometimes I think about you

Oh girl, what am I gonna do
Sometimes I'm soul searchin', oh soul searchin'
I been soul searchin', baby, soul searchin'
Soul searchin', baby, soul searchin'
Soul searchin' way down inside
Deep down inside...yeah, soul searchin'
Soul searchin'....soul searchin' ....soul searchin'

Hold On Tight

Written By: Dan Rio

I don't know what I'm feelin. Like a stranger in the night. Something's gotta hold and it don't feel right. Looking in the mirror yeah, at who I want to be, am I just a dreamer or is that really me? yeah. Hold on tight babe, hold hold on tight baby hold. Staring through the darkness babe a shadow of a face reminds me of another from some distant place. I gotta get away but there's nowhere left to turn. Stand and fight that's how I had to learn. Hold on tight baby, hold hold on tight baby, hold oh yeah. Hold on tight, hold on tight, hold, oh yeah. I've got to get away but there's no where left to turn. Stand and fight, that's how I had to learn. Hold on tight babe. hold, you gotta hold on, hold on tight, hold on tight. Gotta hold on tight, yeah. You got to hold on, hold on to me baby.

By The Sea

Written By: Dan Rio

I don't know why I, I love you. But I can say that, that I do. You make the stars bright, flaming moonlight by the sea. We make the sun shine and it feels fine to be free as we are when your love takes me far to the night. Feels so right to be with you, by the sea. Walking with you makes me smile, oh yeah. We go strolling on, on for miles in the sand making tracks, holding hands on the shore forever and for more. By the sea, by the sea. We make the stars bright, flamin' moonlight by the sea. We make the sun shine and it feels fine to be free. As we are, will your love take me far to the night. Feels so right to be with you by the sea, by the sea, oh by the sea.

(Just Hold On)

Written By: Dan Rio

Hold on baby, hold on. When you are with me, the world seems so right. Without you to guide me, I'm a stranger in the night. Want to know the things about you, cause I just can't live without you. You, you're the one for me. That's how it's meant to be. Sometimes when I'm alone, my mind begins to wonder, think about the hard times we've had, I can't stand it any longer. Heart seems to fade away, just one shade away from a lonely blue if I couldn't be with you. Hold on you've got to give it up, hey. Hold on, keep me strong. Hold on you've got to give it up babe, hold on you got to keep it up girl, hold on to me in the middle of the night, hold on everything's gonna be all right. Hold on, hold on. I know you're so far away. Not a moment that goes by I can think of you every day. Sit at home alone, staring at the telephone, you've gotta give it some time, don't you leave this man behind. Sometimes when I'm all alone, my mind begins to wander. Think about the hard times we had, I can't stand it any longer. Heart seems to fade away, just one shade away from a lonely blue. If I couldn't be with you. Hold on you've got to give it up babe. Hold on hey yeah, keep me strong. Hold on you've got to give it up, hold. Hold on you got to keep it up girl. Hold on to me in the middle of the night, hold on everything's gonna be all right. Hold on baby. Hold, Hold, Hold, Hold. I know you've heard this before babe, but you got to hold on, hold on girl. Hold on, everything's gonna be all right. Hold on baby, baby. Hold on to me in the middle of the night. Hold on, everything's gonna be all right. Hold on you've got to give it up girl.

Two Hearts

Written By: Dan Rio

Someone's got to show you, that you're not the only fish in the sea. I'm not the lone ranger, just look at what you're doing to me. Lookin for attention, in a world that doesn't always seem real. He's just another stranger, how do you think that makes me feel? Time passes by and I try to forget, what was once just a reality is just another memory. Two hearts beat as one heart, one heart was mine, yeah. I wonder where we're going in a world that doesn't have any time. All the lovers in love, well it makes me go right out of my mind. Some day you will find out it's too late to hear those words that I say. You're the one that I was dreamin' of. Well it always seems to happen that way. Time passes by and I try to forget what was once a reality is just another memory. Two hearts beat as one heart, one heart was mine. Two hearts beat as one heart, one heart was mine. Two hearts baby. One heart. Two hearts, one heart was mine.
