ANOTHER SICK OBSESSION

Written By: Roger Hernandez

ANOTHER SICK OBSESSION
by
Roger Hernandez

SHE WAS STANDING AT THE BAR THE FIRST TIME I LAID MY EYES ON HER
MMMM WHAT A HEAVENLY SIGHT
STANDING ALONE WITH A DRINK IN HER HAND
BRUSHED THE HAIR FROM HER FACE CAUGHT EYERYONE'S EYE IN THE PLACE
AND THEN SHE LOOKED ME OVER WITH A GLEAM IN HER EYE
THAT SAID CHILD, "YOU'RE THE MAN I WANT TO ROCK MY BACKBONE TONIGHT"
I SAID "UH HUH, YEAH, THIS GIRL'S OUT OF SIGHT."

SCRATCHES ON MY BACK, BRUISES ON MY WRIST
A BLOODY RUNNY NOSE HOW'D I EVER GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS
NO MATTER HOW SWEET THE DREAM BROTHER BEWARE
IT CAN EASILY TURN INTO A GHOULISH NIGHTMARE
NOW I DON'T MEAN TO LEAVE YOU IN A STATE OF DEPRESSION
I'M JUST SHARING WITH YOU ANOTHER SICK OBSESSION UH, HUH
UH HUH, UH HUH.

TWO YEARS LATER I'M STILL WALKING AROUND
WONDERING WHAT HAPPENED TO GET MYSELF KICKED OFF THE PLAYGROUND
WE DIDN'T SEEM TO NOTICE WE WERE ON THE WAY DOWN
BUT THE SIGN AT THE STATION SAID THIS TRAIN IS HELL BOUND
NOW I DON'T MEAN TO LEAVE YOU WITH THE WRONG IMPRESSION
I'M JUST CONFESSING TO YOU ANOTHER SICK OBSESSION UH, HUH
UH HUH, UH HUH.

I SEE HER AT THE BAR EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE
SHE'S GOT A NEW BOYFRIEND YOU KNOW SHE AIN'T MADE NO CHANGE IN HER STYLE
HE'S GOT SCRATCHES ON HIS BACK, BRUISES ON HIS WRIST
A BLOODY RUNNY NOSE SHE'S SO HARD TO RESIST
NOW I'M DOWN ON MY KNEES THANKING DIVINE INTERVENTION
FOR SAVING ME FROM YET ANOTHER SICK OBSESSION UH HUH
UH HUH UH HUH UH HUH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH UH HUH MMMMMM

Chorus
GYPSY RIDER
COME LAY DOWN BESIDE HER
'CAUSE SHE'S BEEN LOOKING FOR A MAN

Verse
SUN'S ABOUT TO RISE
UPON YOUR SLEEPLESS EYES
SEEMS YOU'VE BEEN HEADIN' TOWARDS NOWHERE
COMING FROM SOMEWHERE IN YOUR PAST
HOPING THAT SOMEDAY
YOU'RE GONNA FIND SOME PEACE AT LAST

Chorus
GYPSY RIDER
YOU'RE THE LAST SURVIVOR
SEARCHING FOR A PLACE TO STAND
GYPSY RIDER
COME LAY DOWN BESIDE HER
'CAUSE SHE'S BEEN LOOKING FOR A MAN

Verse
SHE'S BEEN SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING THAT MEANS MUCH MORE
THAN A GENTLE WASTE OF TIME
SO COME AND TAKE HER HAND AND LEAD HER TO THAT PROMISED LAND
THAT YOU BOTH HAVE HOPED TO FIND

Chorus
GYPSY RIDER
YOU'RE THE LAST SURVIVOR
SEARCHING FOR A PLACE TO STAND
GYPSY RIDER
COME LAY DOWN BESIDE HER
'CAUSE SHE'S BEEN LOOKING FOR A MAN

NO ONE HAS ASKED

SO COME AND TAKE HER HAND AND LEAD HER TO THAT PROMISED LAND
THAT YOU BOTH HAVE HOPED TO FIND (FIND TIME NOW)

Chorus
GYPSY RIDER
YOU'RE THE LAST SURVIVOR
SEARCHING FOR A PLACE TO STAND
GYPSY RIDER
COME LAY DOWN BESIDE HER
'CAUSE SHE'S BEEN LOOKING FOR A MAN

GYPSY RIDER
YOU'RE THE LAST SURVIVOR
SEARCHING FOR A PLACE TO STAND
GYPSY RIDER
COME LAY DOWN BESIDE HER
'CAUSE SHE'S BEEN LOOKING FOR A MAN
OH GYPSY RIDER
I KNOW YOU'D UNDERSTAND

Havana Moon

Written By: Roger Hernandez

Chorus
WILL YOU DANCE WITH ME IN THE LIGHT OF A HAVANA MOON
A SAMBA ECHOES
ON THE DISTANT BREEZES OF HAVANA MOON
CAN YOU HEAR THE GYPSY SONG WITHIN MY SOUL
SET IT'S FIRE FREE
AND OUR PASSION WILL RISE LIKE A HAVANA MOON

Verse
MIDNIGHT'S CALLING ME TO YOU
I CAN HEAR YOUR HEARTBEAT FROM ACROSS THE ROOM
IT'S CRYING OUT FOR LOVE I HEAR IT CRYING OUT FOR ME

I CAN SEE IT IN YOUR EYES
THAT THERE IS NOTHING YOU WOULD NOT DO
TO RELEASE THE PASSION IN YOUR HEART
THIS PASSION THAT CONSUMES YOUR VERY SOUL

Chorus
SO WILL YOU DANCE WITH ME
IN THE LIGHT OF A HAVANA MOON
A SAMBA ECHOES
ON THE DISTANT BREEZES OF HAVANA MOON
CAN YOU HEAR
THE GYPSY SONG WITHIN MY SOUL
SET IT'S FIRE FREE
AND OUR PASSION WILL RISE LIKE A HAVANA MOON

BRIDGE

LATIN MUSIC CREATES A RHYTHM IN THE NIGHT
THERE'S NO ESCAPING THE SAMBA BEAT
WE'RE ONLY SILHOUETTES SWIRLING WITHIN THE MOONLIGHT
ENRAPTURED WITHIN THE SAMBAS' HEAT

Verse
I SENSE BLACK MAGIC IN THE AIR
I FEEL IT'S POWER EVERYWHERE
VOODOO WOMAN PLEASE BEWARE
THAT AS YOU CAST YOUR SPELL YOU'LL UNDO YOURSELF AS WELL

Chorus
SO IF YOU DANCE WITH ME UNDER THE LIGHT OF A HAVANA MOON
BE PREPARED TO LOSE YOURSELF TO IT'S ENCHANTED TUNE
AND AS YOU TRUST
THIS GYPSY SONG WITHIN YOUR SOUL
YOU'LL SET IT'S FIRE FREE
AND YOUR PASSION WILL RISE LIKE A HAVANA MOON
YES SET IT'S FIRE FREE
AND YOUR PASSION WILL RISE LIKE A HAVANA MOON
LIKE A HAVANA MOON
LIKE A HAVANA MOON
SET IT'S FIRE FREE
AND OUR PASSION WILL RISE LIKE A HAVANA MOON OOO OOO
LIKE A HAVANA MOON
LIKE A HAVANA MOON

You Believe In Me Now

Written By: Roger Hernandez

Verse
GIRL YOU BELIEVE IN ME NOW
WHY TELL ME YOU BELIEVE IN ME NOW
AFTER I HAVE BROKE DOWN AND CRIED
CAUSE YOU THOUGHT EVERYTHING I HAD SAID WAS A LIE

WHY OH WHY OH WHY
DO YOU BELIEVE IN ME NOW
WELL DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT THIS WILL CHANGE THINGS SOMEHOW
JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE GONE AND CHANGED YOUR MIND
I KNOW THAT I CAN'T REOPEN MY HEART FOR A TIME

NO NOT TO YOU
EVEN IF YOU BELIEVE IN ME NOW
I KNOW THAT I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IN YOU
CAUSE YOU THOUGHT ALL MY LOVE AS UNTRUE
HOW COULD YOU THINK
I COULD EVER BELIEVE IN YOU

CHORUS
OOH YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I MEAN
YOU THINK WE CAN START THIS ALL OVER AGAIN
CAUSE YOU FINALLY BELIEVE
BUT NO NO MY FRIEND

VERSE
I DON'T CARE IF YOU BELIEVE IN ME NOW
MY BACK'S TO YOU GIRL AND I WILL NOT TURN AROUND NO
NOT TO HAVE YOU LOOK INTO MY EYES
NOT TO HAVE YOU AWAKEN MY HEART WITH YOUR SIGHS

MMM YOU BELIEVE IN ME NOW
DON'T BOTHER SAYING
YOU BELIEVE IN ME
NOW THAT MY SORROW HAS COME TO AN END
I JUST CAN LET THIS START UP ALL OVER AGAIN

CHORUS
OOH YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I MEAN YOU THINK WE CAN START THIS ALL OVER AGAIN
CAUSE YOU FINALLY BELIEVE
BUT NO NO MY FRIEND

OOH YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I MEAN
YOU THINK WE CAN START THIS ALL OVER AGAIN
CAUSE YOU FINALLY BELIEVE
BUT NO NO MY FRIEND

Fooled Again

Written By: Roger Hernandez

Verse
NO I DON'T UNDERSTAND
I DIDN'T REALIZE
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY
IT COMES AS A SURPRISE
BUT THIS ENDING'S ONE
I'VE COME TO MEMORIZE
AND I'VE GOT TO STOP PRETENDING THERE'S MAGIC IN YOUR EYES
CAUSE MY SHADOWS ALWAYS BEEN CAST BY A DREAMERS STAR
BUT THE ONLY THINGS THAT SEEM TO LAST ARE THESE DREAMERS SCARS

Chorus
I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN
DON'T TELL ME I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN
NO I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN
DON'T TELL ME I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN NO WHOA

Verse
NO I DON'T UNDERSTAND
I ALWAYS SEEM TO FALL
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY
I TRY TO CARE AT ALL
AN ILLUSION OF LOVE WAS ALL I EVER SAW
THE DELUSION OF HAPPINESS IS ALL THAT I RECALL
CAUSE WHEN PASSION COMES TO ME
I FEEL THIS DREAM WON'T END
BUT I ALWAYS END UP CRASHING AND BURNING AGAIN

Chorus
I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN
DON'T TELL ME I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN NO
I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN
DON'T TELL ME I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN NO WOAH

Bridge
I CAN ONLY STOP AND WONDER WHY
WHY I'M ALWAYS LEFT HERE CRYING

HOW COULD I'VE EVER LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN
ANOTHER PRETTY FACE
PRETTY EYES PRETTY LIES

Chorus
I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN
DON'T TELL ME I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN NO
I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN
DON'T TELL ME I'VE BEEN FOOLED AGAIN NO

(REPEAT TILL YOU DROP)

Love Can Free Us

Written By: Roger Hernandez

WOOW OOO OOO OO WOOW OOO OOO
WOOW OOO OOO OO WOOW OOO OOO

Verse
NOW I'M STANDING ON THIS MOUNTAIN TOP ALONE
WITHOUT YOU
SURVEYING THE WRECKAGE OF OUR PASSION
TEARS FLOW FROM MY HEART CAUSE I KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOST
AND I CAN ONLY STAND AND WATCH YOU WANDER AND CALCULATE THE COST

Chorus
MY LOVE COULD FREE YOU
FOR I KNOW YOU FOR WHO YOU REALLY ARE
I COULD FREE YOU
I COULD BREAK THESE CHAINS THAT BIND YOU
AND REMOVE THE SHROUD THAT BLINDS YOU
MY LOVE COULD FREE YOU

VERSE
ANCIENT POWERS BROUGHT US TO THESE CROSSROADS YOU AND I
WE'RE ENTANGLED IN ITS WEB
IT'S BOTH WICKED AND DIVINE
BUT THE PATHS THAT LIES BEFORE US NOW ARE AS DIFFERENT AS THE MOON AND SEA
ONE ROAD LEADS TO HAPPINESS THE OTHER TO INSANITY

CHORUS
YOUR LOVE COULD FREE ME
FOR YOU ONCE HELD MY HEART WITHIN YOUR HANDS
YOU COULD FREE ME
WILL YOU BREAK THESE CHAINS THAT BIND ME
AND REMOVE THE SHROUD THAT BLINDS ME
YOUR LOVE COULD FREE ME

VERSE
JUST LIKE A FALLEN STAR THAT BURNS ACROSS THE MIDNIGHT SKY
YOUR LOVE BLAZED INTO MY HEART AND BURNED DEEP INTO MY SOUL
OH BUT THE LOVE THAT SHONE SO BRIGHTLY ONCE
IS JUST A GLIMMER IN THE DARK
I HOPE IN TIME YOU REACH OUT TO ME
AND REIGNITE THE SPARK

CHORUS
LOVE COULD FREE US
FOR IT KNOWS US FOR WHO WE REALLY ARE
LOVE COULD FREE US
IT COULD BREAK THESE CHAINS THAT BIND US
AND REMOVE THE SHROUD THAT BLINDS US
LOVE COULD FREE US

BRIDGE
WOOW OOO OOO OO WOOW OOO OOO
WOOW OOO OOO OO WOOW OOO OOO

VERSE
NOW IF YOU STAND ATOP THIS MOUNTAINSIDE WITH ME
YOU'LL SEE OUR PASSION RISE ANEW OUT OF IT'S ASHES
JUST LIKE A PHOENIX WITH IT'S WINGS AFIRE
BURNING THROUGH THE DARKEST NIGHT
IT WILL ILLUMINATE WHICH PATH TO CHOOSE AND LEAD US TO THE LIGHT

CHORUS
OUR LOVE COULD FREE US
FOR IT KNOWS US FOR WHO WE REALLY ARE
LOVE COULD FREE US
IT COULD BREAK THESE CHAINS THAT BIND US
AND REMOVE THE SHROUD THAT BLINDS US

LOVE CAN FREE US
IF WE OPEN UP OUR HEARTS
OUR LOVE CAN FREE US
IF WE BREAK THESE CHAINS THAT BIND US
AND REMOVE THE SHROUD THAT BLINDS US
LOVE COULD FREE US
IF WE OPEN UP OUR HEARTS OUR LOVE COULD FREE US
IT WILL SURELY BREAK THESE CHAINS THAT BIND US
AND REMOVE THE SHROUD THAT BLINDS US
LOVE COULD FREE US

IF WE OPEN UP OUR HEARTS
OUR LOVE CAN FREE US ELIMINATE THE PAST
LOVE CAN FREE US
IF WE OPEN UP OUR HEARTS
TO ONE ANOTHER
LOVE CAN FREE US
LOVE CAN FREE US
SURELY END SURELY END
SURELY E-----ND
SURELY END THE LONELINESS NOW

HUNGER IN THE HEART

by
Roger Hernandez

CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE WE'RE NO LONGER RESISTING
I CAN SEE IT IN YOUR HEART HOW MUCH YOU CARE
CAN YOU FEEL MY BODY TREMBLE WITH THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU
IT'S A HUNGER IN MY HEART IT'S A LONGING IN MY SOUL

THERE'S A WHISPER ON THE WIND THAT KEEPS INSISTING
THAT THERE'S A TRUTH IN LOVE THAT TWO HEARTS CAN ONLY SHARE
WHEN THE WALLS COME DOWN AND CRUMBLE THOSE DEFENSES THAT WE KNEW
THEN THE HUNGER IN THE HEART CAN SOOTHE THE LONGING IN THE SOUL

WHEN I LOOK BEYOND MY SELF I SEE THAT I HAVE BEEN EXISTING
IN A LIFE FULL OF ANGER AND DESPAIR
BUT NOW THERE'S A LIGHT AND SHE MOVING CLOSER TO THE CENTER OF MY PAIN
TO FEED THIS HUNGER IN MY HEART AND FLAME THIS BURNING IN MY SOUL WOAH

CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE WE'RE NO LONGER RESISTING
CAN YOU SEE IT IN MY HEART HOW MUCH I CARE
CAN YOU FEEL OUR BODIES TREMBLE WITH THE LOVE WE NEVER KNEW
WOULD BECOME THE HUNGER OUR HEARTS AND THIS BURNING IN OUR SOULS OH OH

When Can I See You

Written By: Roger Hernandez

Verse
WHEN CAN I SEE YOU WHEN CAN I HOLD YOU AGAIN
IN MY ARMS I'LL HOLD YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART

WHEN CAN I TOUCH YOU
AND FEEL YOUR BODY NEXT TO MINE
I NEED YOU BY MY SIDE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE

Bridge
WILL I EVER FEEL YOUR LOVING HERE AGAIN
WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I REALLY LOVE YOU

Verse
WHEN CAN I SEE YOU WHEN CAN I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES
AND LOSE MYSELF IN THE WARMTH OF YOUR LOVE

HOW CAN I FORGET YOU HOW CAN I JUST LET YOU WALK OUT OF MY LIFE
YOU'RE MY SOUL MY HEART YOU'RE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE

Bridge
I CAN SEE IT'S TIME IT'S TIME YOU NEED ALONE
TIME TO GROW TIME TO SPREAD YOUR WINGS AND FLy
OH BUTTERFLY FLY AWAY

Verse
IF EVER I CAN SEE YOU
IF EVER I CAN HOLD YOU AGAIN
TOGETHER OUR HEARTS WON'T LET THIS LOVE EVER COME TO AN END

IF YOU'LL EVER SEE ME IF YOU'LL EVER SEE ME FOR WHO I REALLY AM
YOU'LL COME TO FIND THE BUTTERFLY WILL BE SAFE IN MY HANDS

OH BUTTERFLY DON'T FLY TOO FAR AWAY FROM ME

WHEN CAN I SEE YOU WHEN CAN I HOLD YOU IN MY HEART AGAIN
