  • 05:24 Lyrics Make Up Your Mind (feat. Linda Babb)

    Make up your mind

     

    You're playing with me pretty baby it's plain to see

    You think it's fun and that maybe you're fooling me

    You can't go round breakin hearts

    I'm putting down your careless ways

    And tellin you from the start

    I don't believe a word you say

     

    I can see a light in your eyes I wanna think you're  true

    I'm wondering if there's a wrong or right

    In what you say and do

     

    Make up your mind pretty baby

    Don't tell me lies

    Ain't got no time playin games Are u crazy

    You better treat me right

     

    Seems you've had a lot of chances to tell me how you feel

    I need a love with some sweet romances

    A giving heart that's true

     

    I've heard some talk as of lately 'bout what you do

    You play around and you try and make me

    You're breaking all the rules

     

    You got a chance today or I'm walkin away

    Make up your mind cuz you're just wasting my time

     

    Make up your mind Don't tell me lies

     

    You're playing with me Your playing with me

     

    I've been right here waiting for you

    when you needed me

    Your kind of of love is just acting

    How you're treating me

     

    Should I believe what you say

    Or just be walkin away

    Make up your mind Cuz you're just wasting my time

    Make up your mind.

    Don't tell me lies  make up your mind

     

    Make up your mind (repeat to fade)

  • 04:10 Lyrics Loosen Your Grip

     

    Loosen Your Grip

    I don’t know how to love you, you’re in a place that’s too far

    Loosen your grip on formalities, I’ve got the feeling you are

    Don’t you see my reality, I want you to know

    It’s not easy, things changing, let’s find a place to go

     

    Follow me back to the start, I see the light in your eyes

    Come on down with me and be free, let’s be free

     

    Getting lost in a private place, your fortunes are told

    Loosen your grip on the certainty, our paths will grow old

     

    I’m so glad that I found you, you were in my heart for too long

    A fear of getting those feelings, and finding a home to belong

     

    Follow me back to the start, I see the light in your eyes

    Come on down with me and be free, let’s be free

  • 03:43 Lyrics The Places of Know

    From the places we’ve come

    To the places we’ll go

    To the places we’ll see

    And the places we know

    With your hand in mine

    Let’s jump through the door

    To a place in our mind

    That we’ve been here before

     

    Chorus

    It’s a matter of trust

    It’s as plain as day

    It’s right in your face

    Can’t you find your way

     

    Bridge

    You will see what you want to see

    Can’t you find your way

    You will go where you want to go

    Can you trust the way

     

    From the places we’ve gone

    To the places we’ll go

    From the visions we’ll share

    To the faces we know

    With your hand in mine

    Through an open door

    Let’s walk through the light

    That we’ve known before

    Chorus

    It’s a matter of trust

    It’s as plain as day

    That’s bright with light

    That shows us the way

     

    Bridge

    You will be what you want to be

    In the light of day

    You will know what you want to know

    When you trust the way

     

    Lead Guitar

     

    From the places we’ve been

    To the places we know

    From the days we’ll share

    To the love that we sow

    With your heart next to mine

    Beating ready to go

    Let’s move through the light

    Like we’ve been there before

     

    Chorus

    It’s a matter of trust

    It’s the love we say

    Sharing our lives

    That shows us the way
