Lyrics

Melissa

Written By: Steve Crabtree

I fell in love with a young girl,
It wasn't easy to do,
She was only seventeen,
And, I was thirty-two,

She thought I was handsome,
And she looked heavenly,
Oh, Melissa, she gave her love to me.

Melissa . . .
I want to love you more,
You make me feel like days gone by,
When I was young before,
I have always loved you,
Since you were seventeen,
Oh, Melissa, I need you hear with me.

We would get together,
Always on the sly,
Never knowing who's watching with,
A disapproving eye,
But, we had nights together,
That only stars could see,
Oh, Melissa, you gave your love to me.

Melissa . . .
I want to love you more,
You make me feel like days gone by,
When I was young before,
I have always loved you,
Since you were seventeen,
Oh, Melissa, I need you hear with me.

(interlude)
But, she grew older,
And my love, it left her cold,
And I just grew lonely with,
No one left to hold . . .
Now my tears fall in the night, for you . . .

Yes, I have always loved you,
Since you were seventeen,
Oh, Melissa, I need you here with me,
Oh, Melissa, please bring your love to me . . .

(to end)
Melissa . . .
Melissa . . .
Melissa, I want to love you more,
Melissa, like the days before,
Melissa, I want to love you more,
Melissa, like the days before,
Melissa . . .

Paisley

Written By: Steve Crabtree

Paisley thoughts run through my head,
A secret friend I have,
That keeps me warm in bed,

And, if I told you,
That Paisley's is my style
Would you scold me,
Or would you give a smile ? . . .

This highway seems so full of cars,
Drive on in tonight,
The sky is full of stars,
Paisley says, now don't be sad,
We got all we got,
Tonight and that's not bad . . .

And, if I told you,
That Paisley's on my mind,
Would you believe me?
Or tell me I'm unkind,
Or tell me I'm unkind,
Or tell me that I'm . . . blind . . .

(Interlude-solo passage)

And, if I told you,
That Paisley's is my style
Would you scold me,
Or would you give a smile ? . . .

Paisley says "It won't hurt much",
Here's something warm to feel,
Here's something warm to touch,
Paisley thoughts run through my head . . .

Now I've gone away,
That's what Paisley said,
That's what Paisley said,
Paisley's in my head . . .

Crying Won't Help

Written By: Steve Crabtree

Alone again tonight, you drink the wine,
In that big chair by the clock,
What happened to the time ?
You curse your bad luck, You never can seem to win,
And Crying won't help you find your love again . . .

The phone stays quiet still,
You go upstairs to bed,
Hoping sleep can somehow ease,
That pain inside your head,
You dream of better times, once more the tears begin,
And Crying won't help you find your love again . . .

You keep all the hope you have,
Tomorrow really isn't far away,
Then maybe, your dreams will come true,
The wheels of fortune spin, and you can only win,
But, Crying won't help you find your love again.

(solo, guitar, etc),

The wheels of fortune spin, and you can only win,
But, Crying won't help you find,
Crying won't help you find your love,
Crying won't help you find your love, again,

Crying Won't won't help you find your love again . . .
(repeat until fade)

Take It From Me

Written By: Steve Crabtree

It's no fun being lonely,
That's not how this life should be,
I sit here thinking of you only,
Wishing how that it might be,

And if I called you up, please don't hang up on me,
I'm just trying to make you see, the way it might be,
Just remember my advice is free . . .

Here's my love, Take it from me,
Here's my kiss, for you, Take it from me,
Here's my everything, my life, my soul, my dreams,
Here's my heart, Take it from me . . .
Here's my heart, Take it from me.

I'm not trying to tell you what you should do,
I wouldn't, even if I could,
I just wish that I were somewhere with you,
Gimme a chance, I think you should . . .

And if I called you now, please don't hang up on me,
I'm just trying to make you see, the way it could be,
Just remember my advice is free . . .

Here's my love, Take it from me,
Here's my kiss, for you, Take it from me,
Here's my everything, my life, my soul, my dreams,
Here's my heart, Take it from me . . .
Here's my heart, Take it from me . . .
Here's my heart, Take it from me . . .

I'm not trying to make you feel 'any way',
I'm just hoping someday soon, I'll keep on trying,
Then, I want have to be always crying . . .

Here's my love, Take it from me,
Here's my kiss, just for you, Take it from me,
Here's my everything, my life, my soul, my dreams,
Here's my heart, Take it from me . . .
Here's my heart, Take it from me . . .
Here's my heart, Take it from me . . .

oooooooo ooooooo oooooo
Here's my heart, Take it from me,
oooooooo ooooooo oooooo
Here's my heart, Take it from me,
(repeat til fade out)
