Can't Shake You    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
I can't seem to get through to you 
You love to waste my time 
I tried my best to forget you 
But you're always on my mind 

Many times I weep, many times I will confess 
I don't wanna end up like all the rest 

I can't shake you, I can't shake you 
You're just a memory, you're haunting me 
I got it bad baby can't you see 
I can't shake you, no! I can't shake you 
You can do anything you want 
But just come on home to me 

I don't wanna surrender 
Never give up without a fight 
I wanna be a contender 
In your search for Mister Right 

I can't sleep at night, I got you on my mind, baby 
I can't take the pressure, I'm feelin' inside 

I can't shake you, I can't shake you 
I can't hold it back its like a heart attack 
I got it bad baby can't you see 
I can't shake you, no! no! no! can't shake you 
Do anything you want babe 
Just come on home to me 
Oh! woe! 
You're still a part of me 
I just can't seem to forget you 
Deep in the heart of me 
No matter what I do, woe! 

I can't shake you, I can't shake you 
You're just a memory, you're haunting me 
I got it bad can't you see 
I can't shake you, no! no! no! can't shake you 
I can't get you outta my mind 
Never gonna surrender, woman listen to me 
All that I want is that you give me a chance 
I'm in love baby can't you see 
No!

Mistreatin' Heart    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
Girl you're lookin' at me, like someone 
Who's never seen love before 
And you're makin' it seem, that it's me 
I'm the one you chose to open the door 

You say that you're lonely, you say that you're sad 
It's the world that is drivin' you mad 
I'll make you a promise, but make no mistake 
Don't abuse me or we're gonna break 

Your mistreatin' heart 
Is gonna tear us apart 
Your mistreatin' heart 
Puts us back to the start 

There's always a chance things will change 
But I've seen your games before 
You say you'll play fair from now on 
But you still leave my heart on the floor 

You say that you're lonely, you say that you're sad 
It's the world that is drivin' you mad 
Make me a promise but make no mistake 
Don't abuse me or we're gonna break 

Your mistreatin' heart 
Is gonna tear us apart 
Your mistreatin' heart 
Puts us back to the start 

Girl the way you're treatin' me, it just ain't fair 
You say you're gonna miss me, but you just don't care 
You don't care, no you don't, you really don't care 

Your mistreatin' heart 
Is gonna tear us apart 
Your mistreatin' heart 
Puts us back to the start

Come And Get It     (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

Now is the time 
You’d better be ready for action 
Sit back and wait 
You'll never get your turn again, never again 

Open your eyes and see the sun rising 
You've got life in your hands 
Keep hesitation on the horizon 
Let them hear your command 

You gotta have something 
Better than nothing - to believe in 
So just come and get it now 
Better be ready - hold it steady 
Come and get it now 

Some people believe 
That someone will solve all of their problems 
They sit around saying 
“Look at how life’s treated me, so bad!” 

You've got the keys to break from your prison 
Nothing can hold you down 
Don't waste time just make your decision 
Send your power all around 

You gotta have something 
Better than nothing - to believe in 
So just come and get it now 
Better be ready - hold it steady 
Just come and get it 
Come and get it now 

You gotta have something 
Better than nothing - to believe in 
So just come and get it now 
Better be ready - hold it steady 
Just come and get it now 

Gotta have something - to believe in 
Come and get it now 
Better be ready - hold it steady 
Come and get it 
Come and get it now

Road To Morocco    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
I travel the world with my suitcase in my hand 
Right into the dawn 
I ride with the wind saying, "catch me if you can" 
'Cause soon I'll be gone 

Where no one can find me 
Where I'll find myself 
I'm looking for heaven 
But I just found my hell 

On the road to Morocco, the road to Morocco 
I'm on the road to Morocco 
I don't know if I'm coming back 
I might not even see this place again 

Now I'm sitting in a smoke filled room 
My dreams fill the air 
A man is selling me a girl from a tomb 
She wears seven veils 

Where no one can find me 
Where I'll find myself 
I'm looking for heaven 
But I just found my hell 

On the road to Morocco, the road to Morocco 
I'm on the road to Morocco 
I don't know if I'm coming back 
I might not even see this place again 

I'm on the road to Morocco, the road to Morocco 
I'm on the road to Morocco 
I don't know if I'm coming back 
Might not see this place again 

I'm on the road to Morocco, the road to Morocco 
I'm on the road to Morocco 
I don't know if I'm coming back 
I might not even see this place again

All Right Now    (P. Rogers and A. Fraser © Blue Mountain Music PRS / Island Music BMI)
There she stood in the street 
Smilin' from her head to her feet 
I said, "Hey! what is this?" 
Now baby maybe maybe she's in need of a kiss 
I said, "Hey, what's your name baby? 
Maybe we can see things the same 
Now don't you wait, or hesitate 
Let's move before they raise the parking rates" 

All right now, baby it's a all right now 
All right now, baby it's a all right now 

I took her home, to my place 
Watching every move on her face 
She said, "Look, what's your game, baby 
Are you tryin' to put me in shame?" 
I said, "Slow, don't go so fast 
Don't you think that love can last?" 
She said, "Love! Lord above! 
Now you're tryin' to trick me in love" 

All right now, baby it's a all right now 
All right now, baby it's a all right now 

All right now, baby it's a all right now 
All right now, baby it's a all right now

Winter Freeze    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
I'm just a single man 
Looking for some sense in American girls 
I'm just a simple man with broken dreams 

Can't you hear me callin' you? 
No response Oh Lord! tell me what can I do 
Why do I have so much trouble lovin' you? 

Winter freeze you're freezin' me 
Never know what you'll never see 
Winter freeze you're freezin' me 
Ice and snow is all you'll ever be 

You caught me in a tail spin 
Say you've got to learn how to lose to win 
Girl the way you live's like a deadly sin 

You gave me a broken heart 
And let me know that we're so many worlds apart 
You gave me a broken heart from the start 

Winter freeze you're freezin' me 
Never know what you'll never see 
Winter freeze you're freezin' me 
Ice and snow is all you'll ever be 

I'm just a single man 
Looking for some sense in American girls 
I'm just a simple man with broken dreams 

Can't you hear me callin' you? 
No response Oh Lord! tell me what can I do 
Why do I have so much trouble lovin' you? 

Winter freeze you're freezin' me 
Never know what you'll never see 
Winter freeze you're freezin' me 
Ice and snow is all you'll ever be 

Winter freeze 
Never know what you'll never see 
Winter freeze 
Ice and snow is all you'll ever be

You Turn Me On    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
I'm tryin', I'm tryin' 
But I just can't find a way to escape 
Relyin', relyin' 
On you to make the first mistake 

Dyin', I'm dyin' 
‘Cause I see what you got in store 
Tryin', I'm tryin' 
It's so hard you know I can't take no more 

You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 

Burnin', I'm burnin' 
Oh! I'm getting so close to your fire 
Learnin', I'm learnin' 
To control my achin' heart 

Teasin', you're teasin' 
Don't you know you're gonna drive me insane 
Pleasin', you're pleasin' 
‘Cause you know my pleasure is your pain 

You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
Oh ya! you really turn me on 
Ooh! all night long 

I'm tryin', I'm tryin' 
But I just can't find a way to escape 
Relyin', relyin' 
On you to make the first mistake 

Dyin', I'm dyin' 
‘Cause I see what you got in store 
Tryin', I'm tryin' 
It's so hard you know I can't take no more 

You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
You turn me, you turn me on! All night long 
You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
You turn me, you turn me on

Dry Your Tears    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
Now that you're all alone 
It seems love has come and gone too fast 
If only you could trade your throne 
A moment for those good times that passed 

Tell me how were you to know 
That we would let it go 

Dry your tears away 
There's nothing more to say 
We have to wave goodbye to yesterday 
Dry your tears away 
Here comes a brighter day 
Discover what you need 
We all have our own hearts that bleed 

That's how the story goes 
We walked the line right to the bitter end 
Your heart won't let you go 
Still you fight with nothing to defend 
It was never meant to be 

Baby can't you see 
Dry your tears away 

There's nothing more to say 
We have to wave goodbye to yesterday 
Dry your tears away 
Here comes a brighter day 
Discover what you need 
We all have our own hearts that bleed 

Tomorrow you will see 
A future waits for you 
The land of make-believe 
Is where your dreams come true 

Dry your tears away 
There's nothing more to say 
We have to wave goodbye to yesterday 
Dry your tears away 
Here comes a brighter day 
Discover what you need 
We all have our own hearts that bleed

Shot Down In Flames    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
I drive so fast at night, never do look back 
Always run the red lights, off the beaten track 
Living one for all, and breathing all for one 
Forever on the run, always jump the starting gun 

Shot down in flames, only just begun 
Shot down in flames, under the gun 
Shot down in flames, now my song is sung 
Shot down in flames 

Naked in the light, through the fire line 
I'm takin' hold tonight, ignoring all the signs 
My lady luck is comin', I feel her by my side 
I'll never let the straight life, take me for a long lost ride 

Shot down in flames, only just begun 
Shot down in flames, under the gun 
Shot down in flames, now my song is sung 
Shot down in, shot down in flames 

Shot down in flames, only just begun 
Shot down in flames, under the gun 
Shot down in flames, now my song is sung 
Shot down in, shot down in, shot down in flames

Time After Time    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
I just can't help but think there's got to be a way 
Since I met you girl, I can't get through the day 
The way you left me with my life on the line 
Just ain't fair to call, when you got the time 

Time after time 
You got me wanting you 
Time after time, after time 
Girl you got me on the line 

You can change yourself from black into white 
You kept me hangin' on, all through the night 
You think you're smart the way you fool around with me 
I tell you now I know how it's gonna be 

Time after time 
You got me wanting you 
Time after time, after time 
Girl you got me on the line, you got me on the line 

I just can't help but think there's got to be a way 
Since I met you girl, I can't get through the day 
The way you left me with my life on the line 
Just ain't fair to call, when you got the time 

Time after time 
You got me wanting you 
Time after time, after time 
Girl you got me on the line 

Time after time 
Time after time 
Time after time, after time 
Girl you got me on the line, time after... time

Heaven On Earth    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
Time is running out hear it ticking away 
Future’s closing in no reason to delay 
Something’s at the door I hit the floor 
Sit in wonder 
Throw away the chains and start again 
Up from under 

All I wanna know 
Is there heaven on earth? 
So let hell be cursed 
I want heaven on earth tonight 
Heaven on earth 
Do away with the hurt 
Give me heaven on earth tonight 
It’s gonna be right 
All right tonight 

Clouds are rolling in - hear the thunder in the distance 
Home is made of stone to weather resistance 
Now it comes crashing in the walls are thin 
Break down the system 
Strong winds are all around - what is their sound? 
Don’t wanna listen 

Where can I go? 
I want heaven on earth 
Let hell be cursed 
I want heaven on earth tonight 
Heaven on earth 
Do away with the hurt 
I need heaven on earth tonight 
Heaven on earth 
I want hell to be cursed 
I need heaven on earth tonight 
Heaven on earth 
Do away with the hurt 
I want heaven on earth tonight 
It’s gonna be right 
All right tonight 

Heaven on earth 
Let hell be cursed 
I want heaven on earth tonight 
Heaven on earth 
Go away with the hurt 
I need heaven on earth tonight 

I what heaven on earth 
Let hell be cursed 
Heaven on earth tonight 
Heaven on earth 
Do away with the hurt 
I need heaven on earth tonight 
It’s gonna be right 
All right tonight

Dreaming    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
I am the captain on a ship of no return 
Sailing unknown waters for the secrets I must learn 
Guided by the heavens through the calm, the rain and storm 
No thoughts of stopping 'till I reach that distant shore 

I'm dreaming, of the man I used to be 
Dreaming, it's the only way I'm free 
I'm dreaming, of the days when we were young 
And it seems like my tomorrow never comes 

Far in the distance, a sight has caught my eyes 
A strange horizon, under grey and threatening skies 
Now the vision's fading, it's turning into haze 
All so confusing, it keeps changing from day to day 

I'm dreaming, of the man I used to be 
Dreaming, it's the only way I'm free 
I'm dreaming, of the days when we were young 
And it seems like our tomorrow never comes 

I'm dreaming, of the man I used to be 
Dreaming, it's the only way I'm free 
I'm dreaming, and when all is said and done 
I wonder who tomorrow I'll become 
Seems like my tomorrow never comes 
Where will I be when dreams are done?
