I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got

Verse 1
I do not want what I haven't got
I don't need what I couldn't afford
Whatever I already own is fine with me
Living in a mansion is not right with me
Driving a Rolls Royce is not right for me

Verse 2
I don't want to be a zillionaire
I don't need a trophy wife
My friends don't have to be well-connected
I am just a man trying to do the best I can
I'll never be perfect
So I don't try to be

Verse 3
I'm not a supermodel
And I don't want to be
Being a celebrity is just not me
I never had dreams of being a rock star
I don't want to live on a tour bus
Spending time away from home is not for me

Chorus 1
I do not want what I haven't got
I don't need what I couldn't afford
Living a simple life keeps me humble
Keeps me secure
This is more than I could ask for
I do not want what I haven't got

Chorus 2
I do not want what I haven't got
I don't need what I couldn't afford
Living a simple life keeps me humble
Keeps me secure
This is more than I could ask for
I do not want what I haven't got
Just leave me to myself
And I'll be just fine

Pay Attention

Verse 1
It's a matter of respect
It's a life apart
It's a labour of love
It's a few simple words
It's a dream fulfilled
It's a little moonlight
It's a leap in the dark
It's a final season

Verse 2
It's a day's work, a day's pay
It's a sentence of their own
It's a way to move on
It's a family gathering
It's a question of conscience
It's a good tip for a good time
It's a walk in your shoes
It's a hundred days off

Verse 3
It's a thousand country roads
It's a kiss to remember
It's a place our own
It's a place to stand
It's a face in the crowd
It's a special day
It's a sudden change of heart
It's a love supreme

Chorus
Pay attention to what's going on
Open your eyes
Pay attention to what is not said
Listen closely

Shadows On Our Skin

Verse 1
We have always been captives of our own making
Tied to chains for the rest of our lives
Thinking that we could never be who we are

Verse 2
We are our masters, we are our prisoners
But more often than not, we act like slaves
Doing what we are told
Saying what we think is right

Verse 3
We are consumed with thoughts
Of what other people think of us
We look at ourselves in the mirror
And we are ashamed
Because we know we are rarely honest
But we're scared of coming to terms with who we are

Chorus
There are shadows on our skin
We are hiding from ourselves
Each time we lie, we hurt a little more
We're afraid of truth

Coat of Many Colours

Verse 1
I am a coat of many colours
As I age, I don't get dumber
Even though I'm not a doctor
I know how to take care of myself
For the most part, I'm a good person
I don't go around committing crimes
On a few occasions I am mean and rude
But I am still an average dude

Bridge 1
I'm not a one dimensional person
I'm not even a caricature
I am someone who has needs and skills
I have more to offer

Verse 2
I make mistakes just like everyone
I even know that I'm not the perfect son
I try my best whenever I can
But you all know it's not easy, man

Bridge 2
I'm not a one dimensional person
I'm not even a caricature
I am someone who has wants and qualities
I have more to offer

Bridge 3
I'm not a one dimensional person
I'm not even a caricature
I am someone who has goals and talents
I have more to offer

Chorus
I am a coat of many colours
When I'm wearing red, I'm angry
When I'm wearing blue, I'm feeling lonely or sad
When I'm wearing grey, I am a bit confused
When I'm wearing yellow, I'm happy as can be

Call The Doctor

Verse 1
Someone please call the doctor
I am in terrible pain
My honey has left me
And I think I am to blame
This heartache I'm feeling is increasing every day
If I don't take care of it, I am going to pay

Bridge 1
Help! Help! I am in need
Help! Help! Anybody please

Verse 2
As the minutes go by, I am worsening
I would give almost anything to improve my status

Bridge 2
My heart s broken, it needs mending
I can't wait any longer, I'm not any stronger
I'm unable to get a grip
Heading to the hospital should be my next trip

Chorus
Call the doctor - his number is on speed dial
Call the doctor before it's too late
I have a bad case of the blues
And I really don't know what to do
Call the doctor - tell him my situation
I hope he gets here on time

Imagine Love

Verse 1
Imagine love
How it can rise you up above
Like a pearly, white dove
Like falling under a magical spell
Or being a secret you promised not to tell
It can be anything that you want it to be

Verse 2
Imagine love
With an intoxicating sound
One that surrounds you all around
You may feel like a prisoner in a fortress
It could be something you consider to be a pest
It can be anything that you want it to be

Verse 3
Imagine love
With warm hugs and sweet kisses
Maybe with bombs and loud, taunting hisses
With a cool, legendary voice that is moist
Something that is welcoming and comforting
It can be anything that you want it to be

Chorus 1
Imagine love for me and for you
And all the good things you can do
Imagine love for me and for you
Go ahead and start something new

Chorus 2
Imagine love for me and for you
And all the good things you can do
Imagine love for me and for you
That is the least that you can do

Chorus 3
Imagine love for me and for you
And all the good things you can do
Imagine love for me and for you
Go ahead and think about it

Silence Is Easy

Verse 1
I stutter and I hate it
I wish that it wasn't a part of me
I want to speak freely
As others do all of the time

Verse 2
There's not enough that I could do
To erase this thing from me
Believe me, I have tried time after time
It doesn't work
What else can I do?

Bridge
I keep my mouth shut
That's the simplest thing to do
But whenever I talk, my heart starts beating faster
I get nervous because it's a challenge

Chorus
Silence is easy for me
Talking is harder, conversations are torture

She Hangs Brightly

Verse 1
She hangs brightly in the naked sky
I admire her from afar
Her beauty takes my breath away

Verse 2
I look at her fro hours on end
Each time I discover something different
That is when I love her even more
There is nothing that could ever change that

Verse 3
Oh, how beautiful she is
I must be the luckiest man on earth
She grabs my attention and does not let go
My evenings are complete because she's always with me
No matter what happens, I know I can rely on her

Chorus
She hangs brightly every night
While watching over me as I sleep
Her light radiates through every inch of me

Outro
She hangs brightly in the naked sky
I look at her for hours on end
Oh, how beautiful she is

The Power To Believe

Verse 1
You have the power to believe in love
And you have the power to embrace love with open arms
You can dance into the light, capture all the spotlight
Be like shattered pieces of glass or the smell of gas
Imagine all of the possibilities whenever you believe

Verse 2
You have the power to believe in love
Welcome it with a cheerful hello
Free yourself of any sorrow
If you do, you'll have a promising tomorrow

Bridge
You have the power to believe in love
Release your pain, confront your fears
Do whatever it takes
Accept love entirely every day of your life
Nurture it the best way you can
Love is a positive transformation
A great supply of motivation
You will notice the difference that it makes
It's a gift that keeps on giving
When you believe, your visions feel so real
Reach out and change your life for the better

Chorus 1
You have the power to believe in love
I hope you never walk away from it
Make it a part of your life
You have the power to believe in love
Hold onto it, celebrate it, make it a part of your life
When you believe, your dreams can come true

Chorus 2
You have the power to believe in love
I hope you never walk away from it
Make it a part of your life
You have the power to believe in love
Hold onto it, celebrate it, make it a part of your life

Don't Want You To Know

Verse 1
You love to make assumptions
Like you know me very well
Because I'm quiet, you think I'm hiding something
There's no need for an investigation
Everything that I do is private
Does not concern you at all
Get off my case, leave me alone
Privacy is what I demand

Verse 2
There you go again
Asking me question after question
I refuse to answer a single one
I resent the tactics you employ
Get off my case, leave me alone
I have committed no crime

Bridge
If I have any secrets
You will never know what they are
Stop following me wherever I go
I have the right to do as I please

Chorus
I don't want you to know anything about me
What I do is none of your business
My life is mine to keep
