SOONER OR LATER
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

You stepped on my heart
You messed with my head
Cut me down to the bone
Then you laughed while I bled

Were you only pretending?
Did you know we were ending
Before we got started?
Was it all an illusion?
I’ve got so much confusion
And I’m so brokenhearted
So you should know

Sooner or later I’m gonna find you
So watch out behind you
Sooner or later I’m gonna find you

It started so well
I loved you so madly
It ended like hell
It ended so badly, ended so sadly
And now I’m just mad

Was it all a creation?
Just a big fabrication?
Were you feeding me lies, feeding me lies?
I’ve go all kinds of questions
You ain’t givin me answers
You’re just trying to hide
Go and try

But sooner or later I’m gonna find you
So watch out behind you
Sooner or later I’m gonna find you
I’m here to remind you

That I just wanna be close to you
To keep safe and sound
But you don’t wanna be close to me
So I swear to you, I’m gonna hunt you down

Instrumental

Was it all an illusion?
I’ve got so much confusion
And I’m feeling so brokenhearted

Sooner or later I’m gonna find you
So watch out behind you
Sooner or later I’m gonna find you
I’m here to remind you, remind you that

Sooner or later I’m gonna find you
So watch out behind you
Sooner or later I’m gonna find you
I’m here to remind you

Sooner or later I’m gonna find you
So watch out behind you

 

 

AMERICA
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

Sometimes we take it for granted
All the joy of living in peace
Yesterday someone tried to take it away
And we have to find the will to carry on

They tried to break down our courage
To destroy what we love and what we believe
But today as we wipe our tears away
We’ve found the strength we never knew we had

America, America
God shed his grace on thee
The land of light, the land of hope
From sea to shining sea
Raise up your head, reach out your heart
And hold on to your dreams
Be proud to be an American
And stand up for liberty

Now we’re no longer strangers
United we’ll help those in need
Our sorrow will give way to new tomorrows
And we’ll be stronger than we’ve ever been before

America, America
God shed his grace on thee
The land of light, the land of hope
From sea to shining sea
Raise up your head, reach out your heart
And hold on to your dreams
Be proud to be an American
And stand up for liberty

 

 

THE WAY TO YOUR HEART
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

Did you ever want someone so much
But couldn’t find the words to say?
Yearning inside for his touch
Hoping he felt the same way

This feeling grows stronger
With each passing day
And the longing grows worse every night
Send me a message, throw me a line
I’m searching for answers, please show me a sign

If I knew the way to your heart
I would know just where to start
There’d be nothing to keep us apart
If I knew the way, the way to your heart

If I had a map to your heart (if I had known)
Nothing would stand in my way (there’d be nothing in our way)
I’d follow the highways, the rivers and byways
Traveling day after day (you’re all I think of every day)

I’d climb through the mountains
I’d swim through the seas
And I’d never give up on this quest (never give up)
I’d travel though light, I’d travel through dark
But I can’t take this journey till I know where to start

If I knew the way to your heart
I would know just where to start
There’d be nothing to keep us apart
If I knew the way, the way to your heart

This feeling’s growing stronger
This love cannot be wrong
Can’t take this any longer
Cause in your arms is where I belong

Instrumental

If I knew the way to your heart
I would know just where to start
There’d be nothing to keep us apart
If I knew the way, if I knew the way
If I knew the way, the way to your heart

 

 

CRYING IN THE DARK
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

Why, why are you cheating, cheating on me?
I smelled her perfume last night
When you walked into the room
You thought I was sleeping
But I was crying alone in the dark
Dying alone in the dark
From a broken heart

Why, why are you lying, lying to me?
You say everything’s fine
Do you really think that I’m blind?
You say that you’re working late
And that I should go on to bed
But I’m going out of my head
Cause I know that you’re with her instead

So I’m crying in the dark
Dying in the dark

You used to bring me flowers
We used to talk for hours
You used to feel the power
Of our love
But lately we’re hardly speaking
And I don’t know what you’re seeking
But I guess you’ve fin’lly found it
In her arms

You, you, you can stop pretending
I, I, I know that this is ending

Why, why are you cheating, cheating on me?
I smelled her perfume last night
When you walked into the room
You thought I was sleeping
But I was crying alone in the dark
Dying alone in the dark
From a broken heart

Yeah, I was crying in the dark
Dying in the dark
Crying in the dark

 

 

WHEN IT'S MY TIME
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

You smiled, and you touched my soul
And I knew your love would make me whole
So I longed for you through the bitter nights
And I vowed to make you mine
If I get the chance to hold you
I’ll never let you go

When it’s my time, I will find a way
I will make love stay forever
When it’s my time, I’ll love you more each day
And we’ll always be together
Forever and ever

War came. I’ll be gone a while
Have to leave you with our unborn child
But I keep your picture near my heart
And I wear my wedding band
And when I get the chance to hold you
I’ll never let you go

When it’s my time, I will find a way
I will make love stay forever
When it’s my time, I’ll love you more each day
And we’ll always be together
Forever and ever

Years passed, and the kids grew fast
Just the two of us alone at last
But I’ve been so ill and the doctors say
That I’ve got six months, maybe a year
All I want to do is hold you
And never let you go

When it’s my time, I will have no fear
Cause our love will live forever
When it’s my time, please don’t shed a tear
Cause someday we’ll be together
Forever and ever

 

 

ATTITUDE
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

I gave you everything, I was enchanted
You took it all then you took me for granted
I did my best but I’m tired of trying
I may seem happy but inside I’m dying
To hear you say you love me
To hear you say you care
Are you thinking of me?
Or are we going—are we going nowhere?

Cause I gave you my heart, I gave you my soul
Your happiness was my only goal
I made you my world
What more can I do?
But nothing seems to be enough for you
Instead of giving me gratitude
All you give me is---attitude.

I gave you everything just to appease you
What more can I do now? How can I please you?
I’ve given in for so damn long
That I’m fin’lly giving up
So love me, girl, or leave me now
Cause I have had enough—yeah, I have had enough.

Cause I gave you my heart, I gave you my soul
Your happiness was my only goal
I made you my world
What more can I do?
But nothing seems to be enough for you
Instead of giving me gratitude
All you give me is---attitude.
Attitude.

 

IT'S TOO LATE
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

If I thought it’d make a difference
I would show you how I feel.
If you realized my persistence
You would know my love is real.

But we cannot go the distance
If I have feelings that you lack.
And I fear that your resistance
Means it’s too late to get you back.

It’s too late to turn back time
It’s too late to change your mind.
It’s too late to make a new start
It’s too late, too late to change your heart.

If you really ever loved me
Why do you treat me with disdain?
Do you really want to hurt me?
Do you want to cause me pain?

I can’t take this any longer
Does love come with a price to pay?
And the feeling’s growing stronger
You never loved me anyway

It’s too late to turn back time
It’s too late to change your mind.
It’s too late to make a new start
It’s too late, too late to change your heart.

You tell me that you’ve had a change of heart
And that nothing’s been the same
Ever since we’ve been apart
I tell you that I’ve found somebody new
It’s too late to play this game
Cause I’m finally over you

It’s too late to turn back time
It’s too late to change your mind.
It’s too late to make a new start
It’s too late, too late to change your heart.

It’s too late to turn back time
It’s too late to change your mind.
It’s too late to make a new start
It’s too late, too late to change your heart.

It’s much too late, too late to change your heart.
It’s much too late, too late to change your heart.

 

 

WHY AM I HERE?
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

I go to work, then I come back home
People around me, but I feel so alone
If I just went away would anyone care?
How long before they filled my empty chair?

Why am I here? Is there a reason?
Why am I here? There’s got to be a reason
Why am I here? Is there a reason?
Why am I here? There’s got to be a reason

Am I just passing time before I die?
Is there a purpose or is that all a lie?
Should I laugh or should I break down and cry?
Cause I can’t seem to find the reason why

Why am I here? Is there a reason?
Why am I here? There’s got to be a reason
Why am I here? Is there a reason?
Why am I here? There’s got to be a reason

You’ve got to have some faith, you’ve got to believe
You’ve got so much to give, so much to achieve
Each one of us will vanish without a trace
Unless we make this world a better place

Why am I here? Is there a reason?
Why am I here? There’s got to be a reason
Why am I here? Is there a reason?
Why am I here? There’s got to be a reason

Why am I here? Is there a reason?
Why am I here? There’s got to be a reason
Why am I here? Is there a reason?
Why am I here? There’s got to be a reason
Why am I here?

 

 

MAKE YOU MINE TONIGHT
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

Girl, you know exactly what I’m thinking of
You know that I want to make love
Tonight underneath the stars
And girl, you know that you are everything to me
Your love can set my feelings free
Tonight we’ll do everything so right

If the mood is right, I’ll make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’m gonna make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’ll make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’m gonna make you mine tonight

Girl, I’ve never seen a woman look so fine
That dress is gonna make me lose my mind
Tonight as we dance beneath the stars
And girl, you know you hold the key to my desires
Only your love can quench this fire
Tonight we’ll do everything so right

If the mood is right, I’ll make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’m gonna make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’ll make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’m gonna make you mine tonight

Make a wish on a shooting star
Hope your dreams come true
All I want is to spend the night
Making love to, making love to you

If the mood is right, I’ll make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’m gonna make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’ll make you mine tonight
If the mood is right, I’m gonna make you mine tonight

Oh, the mood is right, I’ll make you mine tonight
Yes, the mood is right, I’m gonna make you mine tonight
Oh, the mood is right, I’ll make you mine tonight
Yes, the mood is right, I’m gonna make you mine tonight

 

 

FOREVER IN YOUR EYES
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

Ever since I met you, girl
My head’s been spinning around
Can’t get my feet on the ground
Can’t get my feelings unwound
But when I look in your eyes
I am suddenly found

In your eyes, I can see my future, babe
And it’s here with you
In my arms, wanna hold you closer, babe
For the whole night through
In my heart, that is where I need you, babe
For eternity
Cause I can see forever in your eyes

Any time I’m feeling down
And think that nobody cares
You chase away all my fears
You kiss away all my tears
And when I look in your eyes
Things are suddenly clear

In your eyes, I can see my future, babe
And it’s here with you
In my arms, wanna to hold you closer, babe
For the whole night through
In my heart, that is where I need you, babe
For eternity
Cause I can see forever in your eyes

How do you know when a love is real?
How do you know when it’s right?
All I can say is you know when you know
And I can see it in your eyes

Instrumental

In my heart, that is where I need you, babe
For eternity
Cause I can see forever, the two of us together
Yeah, I can see forever…in your eyes

 

 

PAIN
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

It was such a romantic evening
As we danced beneath the stars
We dined and we talked for hours
Then you took me home in your car

I invited you in for coffee
And things just seemed so right
That one thing led to another
And I asked you to stay the night

I’ve never felt this way before
And I hope you feel it too
The only problem is it’s been two weeks
And I still haven’t heard from you

Is this a dream? Is this for real?
I can’t control the way that I feel
You’ve got me crying out for mercy
Yeah, I’m gonna go insane

Do you think it’s a game? Do you think that my heart
Is something for you to just tear apart?
You’ve got me crying out for mercy
But I know it’s all in vain
Cause only you know how to stop this pain.

I wanted to say that I miss you
So I got up the nerve to phone
But all of my dreams came crashing down
When I realized you weren’t alone

If all that I am is a one night stand
Then I’ve wasted my loving on you
But I can’t get you out of my mind
Even though I know we’re through

Is this a dream? Is this for real?
I can’t control the way that I feel
You’ve got me crying out for mercy
Yeah, I’m gonna go insane

Do you think it’s a game? Do you think that my heart
Is something for you to just tear apart?
You’ve got me crying out for mercy
But I know it’s all in vain
Cause only you know how to stop this
I can’t go on until I drop this
Why did you have to put me through this pain?

 

 

THE FOREST
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

The forest is crying
Her children are dying
The birds are all flying
Away

Deafening violence
And then only silence
The giants are felled
At the knees

But in the spring
When the seed of life begins
She’ll trust her children
To the wind

She’ll being praying in sadness
For an end to this madness
So the forest can sing
Once again

Instrumental

But in the spring
When the seed of life begins
She’ll trust her children
To the wind

She’ll being praying in sadness
For an end to this madness
So the forest can sing
Once again

She’ll be praying in silence
For an end to this violence
So the forest can sing
Once again





 

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

The language of love is in your eyes
Telling me things you can’t deny
Hold me, tease me, squeeze me, please me
Let your feelings flow
Never let me, never let me go.

El lenguaje del amor esta en tu voz
Me dejas sin otra opcion
Abrazame, quireme, alegrame, complaceme
Que salga tu amor
Nunca me dejes, nunca me dejes ir.

Wrapped around my little finger
That is where you need to be
Let me know you want me now
And show me, show me how

Instrumental

Abrazame, quireme, alegrame, complaceme
Que salga tu amor
Nunca me dejes, nunca me dejes ir.

The language of love is in your voice
Leaving me with no other choice
Hold me, tease me, squeeze me, please me
Let your feelings flow
Nunca me dejes, nunca me dejes ir.
Never let me, never let me go



FALL


Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

It used to be so simple
We were friends from long before
But now I find myself
Wanting more

Here I stand before you
And I don’t know what to do
I know I’m falling fast
Yeah, I’m falling hard for you
I wish that you were falling too

If I could find a way to make you love me
You know I surely would
If I could find a way to make you want me
You know we’d be so good
Cause you’re everything I’ve wanted
You’re everything I need
So how do I get you
To fall in love with me?

I dream of walking on the beach
With our bare feet in the sand
Sunsets spent together
Holding hands

Tell me how to win your love
Tell me what I’ve gotta do
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
And I just can’t make it through
If that means living without you

If I could find a way to make you love me
You know I surely would
If I could find a way to make you want me
You know we’d be so good
Cause you’re everything I’ve wanted
You’re everything I need
So how do I get you
To fall in love with me?

How do I get you to love me?
You know that I’m giving my all
How do I get you to want me?
How do I make you fall?

Instrumental

Yeah, you’re everything I’ve wanted
You’re everything I need
So how do I get you
To fall in love with me?
How do I get you to fall?

 

 

SURROUNDED BY YOUR LOVE
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

I’ve been searching all my life
Looking for a love that is true
When I fin’lly looked inside
I realized all I really need is you

Cause anytime I need a hand to guide me
Anytime I need your strength beside me
Anytime I need some help from up above
I’m surrounded by your love

Well, I was lost but now I’m found
You’ve shown me the way that is true
You’ve lifted me to higher ground
Now I know every road leads back to you

Tell me how much stronger my faith in you must be
Tell me how much longer until your love will set me free

Cause anytime I need a hand to guide me
Anytime I need your strength beside me
Anytime I need some help from up above
I’m surrounded by your love

Anytime I need a hand to guide me
Anytime I need your strength beside me
Anytime I need some help from up above
I’m surrounded by your love

Anytime at all that I need a hand to guide me
Anytime I need your strength beside me
Anytime I need some help from up above
I’m surrounded by your love
By your love, by your love, yeah.

 

 

PARADISE
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

Sometimes I get tired
Of working from 8 to 5
I wanna go somewhere
That makes me feel more alive

I just wanna escape to a place
Like Hawaii or Montego Bay
I just wanna escape from this pace
And get away for a couple a days

I just wanna sip margaritas with my feet in the sand
Listen to the rhythm of a steel drum band
Oh baby, why drive yourself crazy
When paradise is just a couple hours away?

All you need is surf and sun and the tropical air
Pick your favorite beach and I will meet you there
Oh baby, why drive yourself crazy
When ocean waves can wash all your worries away?
Join me in paradise today

Beautiful beaches
Basking beneath the sun
Tropical breezes
Plenty for everyone (the fun has just begun)

Instead of working yourself to the bone
Trying to please the man
Why not join me in paradise
Where all you’ll work on is your tan?

Yeah, I just wanna sip margaritas with my feet in the sand
Listen to the rhythm of a steel drum band
Oh baby, why drive yourself crazy
When paradise is just a couple hours away?

All you need is surf and sun and the tropical air
Pick your favorite beach and I will meet you there
Oh baby, why drive yourself crazy
When ocean waves can wash all your worries away?

Instrumental

I just wanna sip margaritas with my feet in the sand
Listen to the rhythm of a steel drum band
Oh baby, why drive yourself crazy
When paradise is just a couple hours away?

All you need is surf and sun and the tropical air
Pick your favorite beach and I will meet you there
Oh baby, why drive yourself crazy
When ocean waves can wash all your worries away?

 

 

PIECE OF YOUR HEART
Music and Lyrics by Ron Friedman

When she went away
You got on your knees to pray
She’d be back again someday
But that day would never come

Now that time has passed
But the feelings, they still last
Letting go’s the hardest thing to do

And though you love her
You’ll discover, your life won’t fall apart
The sun will keep on shining
Even when your world seems dark

And though you love her
You’ll recover, you’ll make a brand new start
But you know she’ll always hold a piece of your heart
You know she’ll always hold a piece of your heart

She said you’d be together
Through any kind of weather
She promised you forever
But that’s a promise she couldn’t keep

Now those dreams are gone
And your life, it must go on
Even though it tears you up inside

And though you love her
You’ll discover, your life won’t fall apart
The sun will keep on shining
Even when your world seems dark

And though you love her
You’ll recover, you’ll make a brand new start
But you know she’ll always hold a piece of your heart
You know she’ll always hold a piece of your heart
Piece of your heart
