Track Name: GEORGIA ON MY MIND
MELODIES BRING MEMORIES
THAT LINGER IN MY HEART
MAKE ME THINK OF GEORGIA
WHY DID WE EVER PART?

SOME SWEET DAY WHEN BLOSSOMS FALL
AND ALL THE WORLD'S A SONG
I'LL GO BACK TO GEORGIA
"CAUSE THAT'S WHERE I BELONG

GEORGIA, OH, GEORGIA, THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH
JUST AN OLD SWEET SONG KEEPS GEORGIA ON MY MIND

GEORGIA, GEORGIA, A SONG OF YOU
COMES AS SWEET AND CLEAR AS MOONLIGHT THROUGH THE PINES

OTHER ARMS REACH OUT TO ME
OTHER EYES SMILE TENDERLY
STILL IN PEACEFUL DREAMS I SEE
THE ROAD LEADS BACK TO YOU
GEORGIA, GEORGIA, NO PEACE I FIND
JUST AN OLD SWEET SONG KEEPS GEORGIA ON MY MIND

Written by Hoagy Carmichael & Stuart Gorrell
Track Name: I CAN UNDERSTAND IT
I CAN UNDERSTAND IT
I CAN UNDERSTAND IT

SOMETHING SWEET AS A CANDY BAR
THIS GIRL TO ME THAT’S WHAT YOU ARE
OH, I, I CAN UNDERSTAND IT

JACK & JILL GOIN’ UP THE HILL
THOSE STORY BOOKS AND FAIRY TALES
OH, I, I CAN UNDERSTAND IT

IF I WANT TO BE WITH YOU LIKE THIS, BABY
STILL TRY FEEL YOUR SWEET AND GENTLE KISSES
NEED YOU BY MY SIDE

SOMETHING COOL BUT NOT TOO COLD
GIRL, YOU GOTTA GIVE TO GET, YOU KNOW
I CAN UNDERSTAND IT
OH, BUT WHEN I TRY MY BEST TO MAKE YOU HAPPY, GIRL
AND I WAKE UP AND YOU’RE GONE
I CAN UNDERSTAND IT

I KNOW SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA GET AWAY FROM HOME
OH, BUT BABY, PLEASE, DON’T STAY AWAY TOO LONG

SOMETHING SUNNY, BUT NOT TOO BRIGHT
GIRL, YOU GOTTA GIVE TO KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT
OH, BUT WHEN I TRY MY BEST TO MAKE YOU HAPPY, GIRL
AND I WAKE UP AND YOU’RE GONE
I CAN UNDERSTAND IT

I KNOW SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA GET AWAY FROM HOME
OH, BUT BABY, PLEASE, DON’T STAY AWAY TOO LONG

Written by Bobby Womack
Track Name: IF I COULD ONLY
IF I COULD ONLY
TURN BACK THE CLOCK
IF I KNEW YOU'D BIN LONELY, BABY
I WOULD HAVE BEEN YOUR ROCK

IF I COULD TRAVEL
TO VENUS FROM MARS
I WOULD MAKE HEAVEN
A PLACE IN YOUR HEART

IF I COULD GATHER
ALL THE STARS IN THE SKIES
I'D WRAP THEM IN RAINBOWS
TO SHINE IN YOUR EYES

IF I'VE BEEN SELFISH
WELL, I GUESS I'M JUST A MAN
WHO TOOK YOU FOR GRANTED
AND TREATED YOU BAD

BUT THERE'S NO EXCUSES
SO WITH HAND ON MY HEART
HERE'S ONE GUY WHO CHOOSES
TO MAKE A NEW START

IF I COULD ONLY
TURN BACK THE CLOCK...

Track Name: MR OPERATOR
IT’S EARLY IN THE MORNING
AND I’M SITTIN’ BY THE PHONE
NOTHIN’S ON THE TV
JUST REMINDS ME I’M ALONE
ANOTHER CUP OF COFFEE
MAYBE HELPS ME TO PASS THE TIME
WHILE I’M SITTING HERE JUST WAITIN’
AT THE END OF THE LINE

SEEMS I CAN’T STOP THINKIN’
‘BOUT THOSE ANGRY WORDS WE SAID
AND THE SOUND OF HER SLAMMIN’ THE DOOR
KEEPS ECHOIN’ ROUND IN MY HEAD
‘MR OPERATOR’, CONNECT ME IF YOU CAN

TRIED ALL THE USUAL NUMBERS
NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW
CAN’T THINK WHAT TO DO NOW
WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD SHE GO?
MR OPERATOR, PLEASE CONNECT ME IF YOU CAN
I’D DO ANYTHING AT ALL
THIS PAIN I CAN’T WITHSTAND

SEEMS I CAN’T STOP THINKIN’
‘BOUT THOSE ANGRY WORDS WE SAID
AND THE SOUND OF HER SLAMMIN’ THE DOOR
KEEPS ECHOIN’ ROUND IN MY HEAD
‘MR OPERATOR’, CONNECT ME IF YOU CAN

GOTTA GET MY BABY BACK
GOTTA GET MY BABY BACK
GOTTA GET MY BABY BACK
GOTTA GET MY BABY BACK

Written by Tony O'Malley, Russell Stone & Keith Trussell
Track Name: SERIOUS
I KNOW YOU NEED SOME TIME
TO BE ON YOUR OWN JUST TO THINK
YOU’RE SO IMPORTANT TO ME
BUT I DON’T WANNA WATCH YOU SINK
I KNOW YOU GET LONELY
CAN SEE IT IN YOUR EYES
TAKE A DEEP BREATH, BABY
YOU MUST OWN UP AND GET WISE

IF IT’S SERIOUS
BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF
STAND UP AND BE LOVED
BE GOOD TO YOURSELF
X2

WHEN YOU FEEL A LITTLE STRONGER
WON’T YOU COME ON OVER TO ME?
I WON’T EVER HURT YOU, DARLING
PLEASE DON’T TRY TO FOOL ME
I KNOW THAT YOU GET LONELY
I CAN SEE IT IN YOUR EYES
AN I’M CONFESSING TO YOU, BABY
THAT WITHOUT YOU I MIGHT DIE

Written by Tony O'Malley

TO THE ONES WHO WANT TO SEE YOU CRY
SO DON’T YOU WORRY, MAMA
HAVE YOUR FUN OH, BABY, THAT’S FINE

I WANT YOU IN MY ARMS TONIGHT
I NEED TO HOLD YOU OH, SO TIGHT
THIS COULD BE OUR LAST DAY OF FUN
SO LET’S SPEND ONE MORE NIGHT TOGETHER AS ONE

LOVE IS FREE LOVE IS BEAUTIFUL
LOVE IS THE SUN REFLECTING ON THE SEA
EVERYTHING YOU WANNA BE
DON’T WORRY, MAMA
HAVE YOUR FUN BABY, THAT’S FINE

Track Name: LOVELY DAY
WHEN I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, LOVE
AND THE SUNLIGHT HURTS MY EYES
AND SOMETHING WITHOUT WARNING, LOVE
BEARS HEAVY ON MY MIND
THEN I LOOK AT YOU
AND THE WORLD'S ALRIGHT WITH ME
JUST ONE LOOK AT YOU
AND I KNOW IT'S GONNA BE
A LOVELY DAY
A LOVELY DAY
WHEN THE DAY THAT LIES AHEAD OF ME
SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TO FACE
WHEN SOMEONE ELSE INSTEAD OF ME
ALWAYS SEEMS TO KNOW THE WAY
THEN I LOOK AT YOU
AND THE WORLD'S ALRIGHT WITH ME
JUST ONE LOOK AT YOU
AND I KNOW IT'S GONNA BE
A LOVELY DAY
A LOVELY DAY
WHEN THE DAY THAT LIES AHEAD OF ME
SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TO FACE
WHEN SOMEONE ELSE INSTEAD OF ME
ALWAYS SEEMS TO KNOW THE WAY
THEN I LOOK AT YOU
AND THE WORLD'S ALRIGHT WITH ME
JUST ONE LOOK AT YOU
AND I KNOW IT'S GONNA BE
A LOVELY DAY
A LOVELY DAY

Written by Bill Withers
Track Name: NAKED FLAME
THERE’S A NAKED FLAME BURNING IN MY HEART
CAN’T YOU SEE THE LIGHT SHINING IN THE DARK
THROUGH THE SMOKE CROWDED ROOM
MY FLAME WON’T DIE
I KNOW MY PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED
BY AND BY

THERE’S A ROAD I’M TRAVELLING THAT IS LONG
BUT I’VE GOT TO KEEP MOVIN’ ON AND ON
THROUGH THE RAIN AND THROUGH THE STORM
OH, NAKED FLAME!
I KNOW MY PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED
IN THE END

THERE’LL BE TIMES OF SADNESS AND DESPAIR
LONELINESS WHEN NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE
BUT THERE’S A LIGHT STILL SHINING IN THE DARK
I’LL KEEP THIS FLAME BURNING
IN THE STILLNESS OF THE NIGHT

WE MIGHT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES AGAIN
BUT WE WILL SURELY LAUGH AND SING AGAIN
THERE’LL BE NO MORE SADNESS, MY FRIEND
COS I KNOW MY PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED
IN THE END
YES, I KNOW MY PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED
IN THE END
OH, I KNOW MY PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED
IN THE END
YES, THEY WILL, I KNOW THEY WILL!

CAN’T YOU FEEL MY SPIRIT, CAN’T YOU FEEL IT
MOVIN’ IN THE DARK
CAN’T YOU FEEL MY SPIRIT MOVIN’ UP A LITTLE
CLOSER TO YOU IN THE DARK
CAN’T YOU FEEL IT!
IN THE DARK….

Track Name: VOODOO DANCE
WHENEVER YOU DO THAT VOODOO
IT PUTS ME IN A TRANCE
WHY DON'T YOU DO THAT VOODOO DANCE
WHENEVER YOU DO THAT VOODOO
IT PUTS ME IN A TRANCE
WHY DON'T YOU DO THAT VOODOO DANCE

LOVING YOU MAKES PERFECT SENSE
IT'S ONE ON ONE IN THE PRESENT TENSE
IT'S A WHIRLPOOL AND I'M GONNA DIVE ON IN
BOLT THE DOOR, DIM THE LIGHTS
LET THE CARNIVAL BEGIN
LET THE CARNIVAL BEGIN

YOU'RE A MASTERPIECE OF MODERN ART
YOU'VE GOT A SACRED SOUL IN A SACRED HEART
YOU KNOW, I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
OH, AND BABY! IT'S MY THING
AND I THANK MY LUCKY STARTS
FOR THE WONDERLAND I'M IN
FOR THE WONDERLAND I'M IN

WHETHER OR NOT IT'S MAGIC
I'M IN THE HANDS OF THE DIVINE
WHETHER OR NOT IT'S MAGIC
I GET A TINGLE UP AND DOWN MY SPINE
A TINGLE UP AND DOWN MY SPINE
WHY DON'T YOU DO THAT VOODOO DANCE

COME ON BABY, AND SHAKE THAT THING
SHOW ME YOUR SACRED SOUL
COME ON BABY, AND DO YOUR THING
DO IT TO ME, COME ON!

WHENEVER YOU DO THAT VOODOO
IT PUTS ME IN A TRANCE
WHY DON'T YOU DO THAT VOODOO DANCE
WHENEVER YOU DO THAT VOODOO
IT PUTS ME IN A TRANCE
WHY DON'T YOU DO THAT VOODOO DANCE

Track Name: FOR THE CHILDREN
THERE IS A CHILD SOMEWHERE WHO COULD FEEL BETTER
THERE'S A DREAM SOMEWHERE THAT COULD COME TRUE
THERE IS A GREY DAY WAITING WAITING TO BE BRIGHTENED
THERE IS A HAND TO HOLD AND NOT FEEL FRIGHTENED
THERE ARE SOME BROKEN HEARTS THAT NEED MENDING
THERE ARE SOME ATTITUDES THAT NEED BENDING

DON'T HAVE TO MOVE NO MOUNTAIN
JUST THINK WHAT YOU COULD DO!
REMEMBER THE PLEASURE FROM A SMILE
OH, AND THINK FOR A WHILE
OF ALL THE THINGS YOU CAN DO
JUST GIVE EVERYTHING THAT IS INSIDE OF YOU
AND GIVE A LITTLE TIME FOR THE CHILDREN

LET'S SING
NA NA NA NA
NA NA NA NA NA NA NA
NA NA NA NA
LET'S GIVE A LITTLE MORE
FOR THE THE CHILDREN

THERE IS A HEAVY LOAD YEAH, COULD BE LIGHTENED
ON THOSE DARK NIGHTS DON'T FEEL FRIGHTENED
THERE IS SOME FOOD SOMEWHERE BEING WASTED
WHILE THERE'S CAVIAR SOMEWHERE I KNOW IS BEING WASTED!
THERE IS AN EMPTY SOUL WAITING FOR A HOLD
JUST A TOUCH FROM YOU COULD BE LIKE THE DUST OF GOLD

DON'T HAVE TO MOVE NO MOUNTAIN
JUST THINK WHAT YOU COULD DO!
REMEMBER THE PLEASURE FROM A SMILE
OH, AND THINK FOR A WHILE YEAH, YEAH
OF ALL THE THINGS YOU CAN DO
JUST GIVE EVERYTHING THAT IS INSIDE OF YOU
OH, AND GIVE A LITTLE TIME
FOR THE CHILDREN

LET'S SING NA NA NA NA...

Track Name: TEARS IN HEAVEN
WOULD YOU KNOW MY NAME
IF I SAW YOU IN HEAVEN?
WOULD IT BE THE SAME
IF I SAW YOU IN HEAVEN?

I MUST BE STRONG
AND CARRY ON
'CAUSE I KNOW I DON'T BELONG
HERE IN HEAVEN.

WOULD YOU HOLD MY HAND
IF I SAW YOU IN HEAVEN?
WOULD YOU HELP ME STAND
IF I SAW YOU IN HEAVEN?

I'LL FIND MY WAY
THROUGH NIGHT AND DAY
'CAUSE I KNOW I JUST CAN'T STAY
HERE IN HEAVEN.

TIME CAN BRING YOU DOWN
TIME CAN BEND YOUR KNEES
TIME CAN BREAK YOUR HEART
HAVE YOU BEGGING PLEASE, BEGGING PLEASE.

BEYOND THE DOOR
THERE'S PEACE I'M SURE
AND I KNOW THERE'LL BE NO MORE
TEARS IN HEAVEN

WOULD YOU KNOW MY NAME
IF I SAW YOU IN HEAVEN?
WOULD IT BE THE SAME
IF I SAW YOU IN HEAVEN?

Written by Eric Clapton & Will Jennings
