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

Top Secrecy    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

You pretend that you are the lucky one 
You’re ten million miles away 

You’ve gone too far 
The ice is thin 
Too dangerous for what you’re getting in 
You tangle your threads 
You can’t recall 
All’s not one and one’s not all 

Don’t you water down desire 
Don’t you crucify our love 
Seems like all the world’s on fire 
But you’re burning alone 

Top Secrecy 
Playing hide and seek 
Top Secrecy 
It’s killing me 

If you think that you are invincible 
Then you’re in for a big surprise 

You turn to the left 
Turn to the right 
All that surrounds you is just one big fight 
You tangle your threads 
You can’t recall 
All’s not one and one’s not all 

Don’t you water down desire 
Don’t you crucify our love 
Seems like all the world’s on fire 
But you’re burning alone 

Top Secrecy 
Playing hide and seek 
Top Secrecy 
It’s killing me 

Top Secrecy 
Playing hide and seek 
Top Secrecy 
It’s killing me

Leigh Ann    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

She was a girl who I used to know 
Somehow I left her behind 
Now the light is beginning to show 
At the scene of the crime 

Through all the days and into the nights 
Me and my heart all alone 
I gotta carry on this fight 
I'm so far from home 
Around the world I go 

I’ve gotta find you Leigh Ann 
Oh! Leigh Ann 
I'm gonna find you Leigh Ann 
I've been waitin' so long 

The sun shine wherever she goes 
I don't belong in the rain 
She has control where the four winds blow 
From China to Spain 

She's stolen my heart possessing my soul 
You've gotta see to believe 
I never know what I’m gonna get 
She's got tricks up her sleeve 
Things that can't be seen 

I wanna hold you Leigh Ann 
Oh! Leigh Ann 
I wanna hold you Leigh Ann 
I've been waiting so long 

You got me waiting with anticipation 
Every single night 
My heart is breaking every day 
It's you in all my dreams 

Didn’t wanna lose you Leigh Ann 
Oh! Leigh Ann 
I'm gonna find you Leigh Ann 
I wanna hold you Leigh Ann 
I'm gonna find you Leigh Ann

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

Lightning's Gonna Strike    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
Wake up in the middle of the night 
Everything is wrong and nothing seems right 
Sit up and wipe the sweat off your face 
Start asking yourself who's winning the race 

Your conscience is cold 
You say that you'll never grow old 
What was is that you say you sold 
You wanna leave the ground 
But something holds you down 

Lookout! 
Lightning’s gonna strike you 
If you turn and run away 
Lightning’s gonna strike you 
Did you forget you had to pay 

Driving up a one way street 
You don't give a damn and you always wanna cheat 
Don’t know how you’re gonna make it
you better think twice

Your memory was sold 
You’re grey and you’re growin’ old 
You’ll never find a heart of gold 
You wanna leave the ground 
But something holds you down 

Lookout! 
Lightning’s gonna strike you 
If you turn and run away 
Lightning’s gonna strike you 
Did you forget you had to pay 

Lookout! 
Lightning’s gonna strike you 
If you turn and run away 
Lightning’s gonna strike you 
Don’t you forget you gotta pay 

Lookout! 
Lightning’s gonna strike you 
If you turn and run away 
Lookout! 
Lightning’s gonna strike you 
Did you forget you gotta pay 
Watch for Lightning!

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

Love Back Guarantee    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
Time can choose a victim 
No sense of right or wrong 
He turns his back to walk away 
You wonder where you belong 

Love will try and come back to you 
To start all over again 
Misunderstand what you're going through 
Until you finally reach the end 

You want it now 
A love back guarantee 
To fix somehow 
A broken heart under warranty 
Just sign it now 
Down on the bottom right on the dotted line 
Feeling better with a love back guarantee 

No one stopped to warn you 
Better read between the lines 
You can't believe or imagine 
That you were left behind 

You want the tables to turn around 
To start all over again 
No one will hear if you make a sound 
It's too late you can't pretend 

You want it now 
A love back guarantee 
To fix somehow 
A broken heart under warranty 
Just sign it now 
Down on the bottom right on the dotted line 
Feeling better with your love back guarantee 

Yeah! Love back guarantee 
Baby, won't you sign it please? 

You want it now 
A love back guarantee 
To fix somehow 
A broken heart under warranty 
Just sign it now 
Down on the bottom right on the dotted line 
You’ll feel better with a name 
It’s a lonely dealer’s game 
Feeling better with your love back guarantee 
Love back guarantee

Never Want To Let You Go    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
I found what I was looking for 
A shelter from the rain 
Your smile was saying that you felt the same 
When you surrounded me with magic 
And released me from the past 
I never had to doubt it was gonna last 

You gotta feel it’s right 
Just keep our love in sight 
I'm ready for you - you were made for me 
Oh! Baby let it be 

I never wanna let you go 
My heart just wants to tell you so 
I never wanna let you go 
Oh! I just wanna let you know 

I was living in the darkness 
Thought I'd never see the light 
Then you showed me the morning through the night 
All the words can't tell you what I'm feeling 
My life will never be the same 
Can I leave you now and hope that you remain 

You know it feels so right 
When we turn out the light 
I was made for you - are you ready for me 
Come on baby set me free 

I never wanna let you go 
My heart just wants to tell you so 
I never wanna let you go 
Oh! I just wanna let you know 
I never wanna let you go 
My heart just wants to tell you so 
Never wanna let you go 
Oh! I just wanna let you know 

You gotta feels it’s right 
Just keep our love in sight 
I'm ready for you were made for me 
Oh! Baby let it be 

I never wanna let you go 
My heart just wants to tell you so 
I never wanna let you go 
Oh! I just wanna let you know

Red Sky    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
Comes a time you have to take a chance 
You roll the dice just to see them dance 
Look over your shoulder don't play the fool 
‘Cause somebody out there breaking the rules 

There's gonna be trouble there's gonna be pain 
You can't turn your back when you're playing this game 
Throw your cards on the table, wait and see 
Are you the winner or is it a dream 

There's a red sky tonight 
Tomorrow will be all right 
It's a red sky tonight 
Lady luck be your guiding light 

You start to tremble you start to shake 
Come to the conclusion your life is at stake 
Forget all your problems forget all your fears 
Look to the future and save your last tear 

There's a red sky tonight 
Tomorrow will be all right 
It's a red sky tonight 
Lady luck be your guiding light 

You want a warning say you need a sign 
You can make it on through 
You'll find all the answers they're just behind the line 
Soon all your dreams will come true 

There's a red sky tonight 
Tomorrow will be all right 
It’s a red sky tonight 
Lady luck be your guiding light

Tearing Us Apart    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)
Seasons are changing 
There's a winter like never before 
The winds are blowing 
Feeling colder we wait at the door 

Watching as our worlds are burning 
Turning - learning 
Almost like our time is over 
Can’t you see we’re on a new road again 

What's tearing us apart? I wanna know 
We’re playing from the heart 
A never ending show 
What's tearing us apart? I wanna know 
Deep feelings from the heart 
They will never go 

Life from the shadows 
Adventures have just begun 
Climbing the mountain 
As we’re reaching towards the sun 

Can’t you hear the future calling 
Follow - tomorrow 
Don’t believe your time is over 
Can’t you see we’re on a new road again 

What's tearing us apart? I wanna know 
We’re playing from the heart 
A never ending show 
What's tearing us apart? I wanna know 
Deep feelings from the heart 
They will never go 

What's tearing us apart? I wanna know 
We’re playing from the heart 
A never ending show 
What's tearing us apart? I wanna know 
Deep feelings from the heart 
They will never go
