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

Still I Am    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

I found the time to search my mind 
See where it was leadin' me 
I suddenly saw that I always was 
I am and will always be 

Maybe if I were to close my eyes 
And eliminate this coloured world 
But I can't escape I have to wait 
For my life it will soon unfold 

The meaning's gone, but the dream goes on 
And it's better just to find the time 
Being right for me is the only plea 
That I'll make to this troubled mind 

Still I am, here I stand 
Still I am 

The days go by and I always try 
To be better than I was before 
But I'm to blame if I stay the same 
‘Cause time's not supposed to score 

The meaning's gone, but the dream goes on 
And it's better just to find the time 
Being right for me is the only plea 
That I'll make to this troubled mind 

Still I am, here I stand 
Still I am 

Still I am, here I stand 
Still I am

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

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
