"Can’t Stop Lovin’ You"
Words & Music by JAC

I can’t stop lovin’ you
I can’t stop!

What would I say if you were with me
What would I say if you were here with me now
What would I say to change your mind about me
What would I say?

I can’t stop lovin’ you
I can’t stop the love
I can’t stop lovin’ you
I can’t stop the love

Every day I think about you
Every day I think about me and you
And what I did that changed your mind about me
Every day…

I can’t stop lovin’ you
I can’t stop the love
I can’t stop lovin’ you
I can’t stop the love

I have, so much
Love inside, I’m breakin’ down
Your love, your sweet love
…never gonna, never gonna...
Let you down

I can’t stop lovin’ you
I can’t stop the love
I can’t stop lovin’ you
I can’t stop the love

Lonely days, I caused myself, now I’m alone…I get down on my knees and pray
Those lonely days, I caused myself, now I’m alone….I get down on me knees…
I gotta get on down, get on down, get on down
I gotta get on down, get on down, down on my knees
Please…love me
Love me
Love me
Love me….please.

"Follow Me"

Written By: JAC

“Follow Me”
written by JAC

I am just listenin’
And I hear what you’re sayin’
I can feel all your pain
Yes, indeed

You have gone many ways
Tryin’ to medicate
All along I’ve waited
For you to come to me

Lovin you
Is all I wanna do
Can’t you hear me?
Follow Me
Follow Me

Every heart has a hole
But, only One can fill your soul
I can show you what you need
If you follow me

Lovin you
Is all I wanna do
Can’t you hear me?
Follow Me
Follow Me

Everyone wants love
This is what I’m made of
My arms are wide open
…come to Me

Lovin you
Is what I came to do
Can’t you hear me?
Follow Me
Follow Me

Follow Me
Follow Me
Follow Me!
Follow Me!

"Susie"

Written By: JAC

“Susie”
Words and Music by JAC

I met a girl named Susie,
she would show me the way
She said I’m goin’ for a ride, would you like to come along?
take my hand I’ll lead you there
I heard a lot about that Susie girl who’s leading souls to God
And I don’t wanna go
But, there is somethin’ about
that Susie
that I want
that I don’t have
Oh, I don’t know!

Say I go with Susie
I go all the way
They say life without her would be lonely
Every day I say no to her way
Is another day without her

Another day and Susie’s knockin’ on my heart again
She wants to take me on that ride, where exactly will we go
She said I needed faith then I would know
Then she told me about the Lord above and sayin’ prayers
And I said, I need to go
But, there is somethin’ about
that Susie
that I want
that I don’t have
Oh, I don’t know!

Say I go with Susie
I go all the way
They say life without her would be lonely
Everyday I say no to her way
Is another day without her

Another day and Susie…
…here we go again
But, this day’s unlike the rest
For she told me somethin’ that
Tore my heart right out of my chest
She said she’d lay her life down for me if I’d go her way
And I was blown away
And now I know about that Susie who saves souls
So here I am
When do we go?

"Hard As A Rock"

Written By: JAC

“Hard As A Rock”
Words & Music by JAC

You – You can have a big house on a hill
You can have all your bank accounts filled
But, what does it mean if your heart’s
Hard as a rock? (2x)

So we fell in love, made a lot of plans
Tried to do them all, putting stress in our hands
At some point, somethin’ had to give
I didn’t do my part, I let you down
But, you had a chance to come around
Instead you said – “our love was a mistake”

You – You can have a big house on a hill
You can have all your bank accounts filled
But, what does it mean if your heart’s
Hard as a rock? (2x)

You can move ahead, forget about the past
Medicate the pain, how long’ll this last?
But, at some point, you’ll have to face yourself
You wanted your freedom, but you’re lost
You gave yourself up – at what cost?
In the midst of the pain, I learned what you need

You – You can have a big house on a hill
You can have all your bank accounts filled
But, what does it mean if your heart’s
Hard as a rock? (2x)

Hard as a rock, hard as a rock
Hard as a rock, hard as a rock
Say, hard as a rock (2x)

Oooooooo,
Oooooooo,
Oooooo, oooooo, oooooo (2x)

What does it profit a man
to gain the world, but lose his soul? (2x)

You – You can have a big house on a hill
You can have all your bank accounts filled
But, what does it mean if your heart’s
Hard as a rock? (2x)

Hard as a rock, hard as a rock
Hard as a rock, hard as a rock
Say, hard as a rock (2x)

"Love Won't Waste It's Time On Me"

Written By: JAC

“Love Won’t Waste It’s Time On Me”
Words & Music by JAC

Let me tell you about love and affection
I have lived and I know
It doesn’t come around every day
But, when it does…don’t let go!
‘cause there’s another one craving love
that will do what you do
and if your love doesn’t think you love her
she won’t wait for…
…you.

Love won’t waste…
Waste its time…
Time on me…
Waste her time!
Don’t you know I’m in love!
Love Won’t Waste It’s…
Waste It’s Time On…
Waste It’s Time On Me!

Every day I wake up and say,
“Thank you, Lord. Where are we goin’ now?”
‘cause everything good that I have
came from above.
Don’t you know?
I met a girl and she was
TRUE love at first sight
But, then another man came along…she gave him what was mine.

Love won’t waste…
Waste its time…
Time on me…
Waste her time!
Don’t you know I’m in love!
Love Won’t Waste It’s…
Waste It’s Time On…
Waste It’s Time On Me!

Every day I wake up and say,
“Thank you, Lord. Where are we goin’ now?”
‘cause everything good that I have
came from above.
Don’t you know?
I met a girl and she was (and she was)
TRUE love at first sight (she was)
But, then another man came along…she gave him what was mine.

Love won’t waste…
Waste its time…
Time on me…
Waste her time!
Don’t you know I’m in love!
Love Won’t Waste It’s…
Waste It’s Time On…
Waste It’s Time On Me!

"Alone"

Written By: JAC

"Alone"
Words & Music by JAC

I don’t wanna be alone
I don’t wanna be alone
Desolate
By myself
All alone
How many words do I have to say?

I don’t wanna be ALONE!
ALONE!
ALONE!
ALONE!

What have I done?
I wasn’t paying attention
Now I’m Desolate
By myself
All alone
How many words do I have to say?

I don’t wanna be ALONE!
ALONE!
ALONE!
ALONE!

Love slipped through my hands – I didn’t see
Will it come back to me – hopefully
Lord, grant me a chance – at love again
I know I’ll get it right this time – with you my friend

But, until that day I’m ALONE!
ALONE!
ALONE!
ALONE!

Desolate
By myself
All alone
How many words do I have to say?

I don’t wanna be ALONE!
ALONE!
ALONE!
ALONE!

"I Didn't Wanna Say Goodbye"

Written By: JAC

"I Didn’t Want To Say Goodbye"
Words & Music by JAC

I didn’t want to say goodbye when you said so to me
I didn’t want to let you go, but you let go of me
Though I know I hurt you bad, well this hurt me too
Whenever you hurt the one you love you hurt the two of you

Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh

I wish that I could turn back time to that day
How could I have been so dumb to throw it all away?
When my eyes were blind, some sweet words were said
I fell for the lie and now our love is dead

Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh

You say that you don’t love me
I don’t know that I believe you
Say it isn’t so

You say that you don’t need me
I’m not trying to hear you say this
Say it isn’t so

I didn’t want to say goodbye when you said so to me
I didn’t want to let you go, but you let go of me
Though I know I hurt you bad, well this hurt me too
Whenever you hurt the one you love you hurt the two of you

Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh

Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh (2x)

You say that you don’t love me
I don’t know that I believe you
Say it isn’t so

You say that you don’t need me
I’m not trying to hear you say this
Say it isn’t so

Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Say it isn’t so (2x)

"Love and Affection"

Written By: JAC

"Love And Affection"
Words & Music by JAC

I think my time is comin’
I think my time is comin’
I think my time is comin’
I think my time has come

Sometimes I feel like such a waste
and all the while I wait
for love and affection
If you look into my eyes
my soul won’t lie
I need your love

Why do I think that I can get this from talkin’ to you?
So I’m gonna sit and wait
I know my day
my day will come

I need love and affection
I need love and affection

If I could look into your heart
tear it all apart
would I find any passion (for me?)
You said you’d love me forever
forever came
and you were gone

Why do I think that I can get this from talkin’ to you?
So I’m gonna sit and wait
I know my day
my day will come

I need love and affection
I need love and affection
I need love and affection
Lord, give me love and affection

If I could, you know I would, give you my heart and my soul
If I could, you know I would, give you every bit of my soul

I need love and affection
I need love and affection
You see, I knew what you needed inside
You say what you need is a love that would treat you right
If you want to waste all your time running away from me
You know what you need is love

"There Will Be Love Now"

Written By: JAC

“There Will Be Love Now”
Words & Music by JAC

There will be love now
There will be love now
Every day’s a new day
Every day’s a new day

I must leave the past in the past
Can’t let those memories last
All the dreams I did dream
Maybe they weren’t meant for me?

There will be love now
There will be love now
Every day’s a new day
Every day’s a new day

This is a story of love and pain
All my life they’re both the same
I have a need for love that is true
I’ve been left at love’s door
And it has left me wanting more
With my old life, I am through

There will be love now
There will be love now
Every day’s a new day
Every day’s a new day (2x)

I must leave the past in the past
Can’t let those memories last
All the dreams I did dream
Maybe they weren’t meant for me?

So here I stand wondering aloud
How did our love come crashing down?
I don’t know what the future will bring
But I know, I’ll continue to sing…

This is a story of love and pain
All my life they’re both the same
I have a need for love that is true
I’ve been left at love’s door
And it has left me wanting more
With my old life, I am through

There will be love now
There will be love now
Every day’s a new day
Every day’s a new day (2x)
