The Best Of Me 
gora

Sometimes words are hard to find
I'm looking for that perfect line
To let you know you're always on my mind
Ya this is love - n' I've learned enough to know
I'm never lettin' go
No, no, no - won't let go

When you want it - when you need it
You'll always have the best of me
I can't help it - believe it
You'll always get the best of me

I may not always know what's right
But I know I want you here tonight
Gonna make this moment last for all your life
oh ya this is love - n' it really means so much
I can tell from every touch
No, no, no - can't get enough

When you want it - when you need it
You'll always have the best of me
I can't help it - believe it
You'll always get the best of me


Ya this is love
And I've learned enough to know
I'm never letting go
No, no, no - won't let go

When you want it - when you need it
You'll always have the best of me
I can't help it - believe it
You'll always have the best of me - yeah!

When you want it - when you need it
You'll always get the best of me
I can't help it - believe it
You'll always get the best of me

You've got the best of me

You might stop a hurricane
Might even stop the drivin' rain
You might have a dozen other guys
But if you wanna stop me baby - don't even try
I'm goin' one way - your way
It's such a strong way - let's make it our way

Can't stop this thing we started
You gotta know it's right
Can't stop this course we've plotted
This thing called love we got it
No place for the brokenhearted
Can't stop this thing we started - no way
I'm goin' your way!
You might stop the world spinnin' round
Might even walk on holy ground
I ain't Superman and I can't fly
But if you wanna stop me baby - don't even try
I'm goin' one way - your way
It's such a strong way - let's make it our way

Can't stop this thing we started
You gotta know it's right
Can't stop this course we've plotted
This thing called love we got it
No place for the brokenhearted
Can't stop this thing we started - no way
I'm goin' your way!

Oh - why take it slow
I gotta know 
Nothing can stop this thing that we got


I'm Ready 
gora

I'd like to see you, thought I'd let you know 
I wanna be with you everyday 
Cause I've got a feeling that beginning to grow 
And there's only one thing I wanna say 

I'm ready - to love you 
I'm ready - to hold you 
I'm ready - I'm ready 
Ready as I'm gonna be 

She left me a long note when she left me here 
Told me that love was hard to find 
But baby it's easy and I'll make it clear 
That there's only one thing on my mind 

I'm ready - to love you 
I'm reday - to hold you 
I'm ready - I'm ready 
Ready as I'm gonna be


Summer Of '69 
gora

I got my first real six-string 
Bought it at the five-and-dime 
Played it till my fingers bled 
It was the summer of '69 

Me and some guys from school 
Had a band and we tried real hard 
Jimmy quit and Jody got married 
I shoulda known we'd never get far 
Oh when I look back now 
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice 
Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life 

Ain't no use in complainin'
When you got a job to do 
Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you 

Standin' on your mama's porch 
You told me that you'd wait forever 
Oh and when you held my hand 
I knew that it was now or never 
Those were the best days of my life 

Back in the summer of '69 

Man we were killin' time 
We were young and restless 
We needed to unwind 
I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no

And now the times are changin' 
Look at everything that's come and gone 
Sometimes when I play that old six-string 
I think about ya wonder what went wrong 

Standin' on your mama's porch 
You told me it would last forever 
Oh the way you held my hand 
I knew that it was now or never 
Those were the best days of my life 

Back in the summer of '69


Let's Make A Night To Remember 
gora

I love the way ya look tonight 
With your hair hangin' down on your shoulders 
N' I love the way ya dance your slow sweet tango 
The way ya wanna do everything but talk 
And how ya stare at me with those undress me eyes
Your breath on my body makes me warm inside 

Let's make out - let's do something amazing 
Let's do something that's all the way 
Cuz I've never touched somebody like the way I touch your body 
Now I never want to let your body go...

Let's make a night - to remember 
From January - to December 
Let's make love - to excite us 
A memory - to ignite us 
Let's make honey baby - soft and tender
Let's make sugar darlin' - sweet surrender 
Let's make a night - to remember - all life long 

I love the way ya move tonight 
Beads of sweat drippin' down your skin
Me lying here - n' you lyin' there 
Our shadows on the wall and our hands everywhere 

Let's make out - let's do something amazing 
Let's do something that's all the way 
Cuz I've never touched somebody like the way I touch your body 
Now I never want to let your body go...

Let's make a night - to remember 
From January - to December 
Let's make love - to excite us 
A memory - to ignite us 
Let's make honey baby - soft and tender
Let's make sugar darlin' - sweet surrender 
Let's make a night - to remember - all life long 

I think about ya all the time 
Can't you see you drive me outta my mind
Well I'm never holdin' back again 
Ya I never want this night to end 
Cuz I've never touched somebody like the way I touch your body 
Now I never want to let your body go...


All For Love 
gora

When it's love you give 
(I'll be a man of good faith.) 
Then in love you live. 
(I'll make a stand. I won't break.) 
I'll be the rock you can build on, 
Be there when you're old, 
To have and to hold. 

When there's love inside 
(I swear I'll always be strong.) 
Then there's a reason why. 
(I'll prove to you we belong.) 
I'll be the wall that protects you 
From the wind and the rain, 
From the hurt and pain. 

Let's make it all for one and all for love. 
Let the one you hold be the one you want, 
The one you need, 
'Cause when it's all for one it's one for all. 
When there's someone that should know 
Then just let your feelings show 
And make it all for one and all for love. 

When it's love you make 
(I'll be the fire in your night.) 
Then it's love you take. 
(I will defend, I will fight.) 
I'll be there when you need me. 
When honor's at stake, 
This vow I will make: 

That it's all for one and all for love. 
Let the one be the one you want, 
The one you need, 
'Cause when it's all for one it's one for all. 
When there's someone that should know 
Then just let your feelings show 
And make it all for one and all for love. 

Don't lay our love to rest 
'Cause we could stand up to you test. 
We got everything and more than we had planned, 
More than the rivers that run the land. 
We've got it all in our hands. 

Now it's all for one and all for love. 
(It's all for love.) 
Let the one you hold be the one you want, 
The one you need, 
'Cause when it's all for one it's one for all. 
(It's one for all.) 
When there's someone that should know 
Then just let your feelings show. 
When there's someone that you want, 
When there's someone that you need 
Let's make it all, all for one and all for love.


Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman? 
gora

To really love a woman 
To understand her - you gotta know her deep inside
Hear every thought - see every dream 
N' give her wings - when she wants to fly 
Then when you find yourself lyin' helpless in her arms
Ya know ya really love a woman 

When you love a woman you tell her that she's really wanted 
When you love a woman you tell her that she's the one 
Cuz she needs somebody to tell her that it's gonna last forever 
So tell me have you ever really - really really ever loved a woman? 

To really love a woman 
Let her hold you - til ya know how she needs to be touched 
You've gotta breathe her - really taste her 
Til you can feel her in your blood 
N' when you can see your unborn children in her eyes 
Ya know ya really love a woman 

When you love a woman 
you tell her that she's really wanted 
When you love a woman you tell her that she's the one
Cuz she needs somebody to tell her
that you'll always be together 
So tell me have you ever really - really really ever loved a woman? 

You got to give her some faith - hold her tight
A little tenderness - gotta treat her right 
She will be there for you, takin' good care of you 
Ya really gotta love your woman...


Run To You 
gora

She says her love for me could never die 
But that'd change if she ever found out about you and I

Oh - but her love is cold 
It wouldn't hurt her if she didn't know, 'cause...

When it gets too much 
I need to feel your touch 

I'm gonna run to you 
I'm gonna run to you 
Cause when the feelin's right I'm gonna run all night 
I'm gonna run to you 
She's got a heart of gold she'd never let me down 
But you're the one that always turns me on 
You keep me comin' 'round 

I know her love is true 
But it's so damn easy makin' love to you 

I got my mind made up 
I need to feel your touch 

I'm gonna run to you 
Ya - I'm gonna run to you 
Cause when the feelin's right I'm gonna stay all night 

I'm gonna run to you 
Ya - I'm gonna run to you 
Oh when the feelin's right I'm gonna run all night 
I'm gonna run to you


Cloud Number Nine 
gora

Clue number one was when you knocked on my door
Clue number two was the look that you wore
And that's when I knew, it was a pretty good sign
That something was wrong up on cloud number nine

Well it's a long way up and we won't come down tonight
Well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right

And the moon is out and the stars are bright
And whatever comes gonna be alright
'Cause tonight you will be mine - up on cloud number nine
And there ain't no place that I'd rather be
And we can't go back but you're here with me
Yeah, the weather is really fine - up on cloud number nine

Now he hurt you and you hurt me
And that wasn't the way it was supposed to be
So baby tonight let's leave the world behind
And spend some time up on cloud number nine

Well it's a long way up and we won't come down tonight
Well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right

Well we won't come down tonight
Ya we won't come down tonight
No we won't come down tonight

We can watch the world go by - up on cloud number nine


(Everything I Do) I Do It For You 
gora

Look into my eyes - you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart - search your soul
And when you find me there you'll search no more
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

Look into my heart - you will find
There's nothin' there to hide
Take me as I am - take my life
I would give it all I would sacrifice
Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it there's nothin' I want more
Ya know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

There's no love - like your love
And no other - could give more love
There's nowhere - unless you're there
All the time - all the way

Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for 
I can't help it there's nothin' I want more
I would fight for you - I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you - Ya I'd die for you

Ya know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you


Back To You 
gora

I've been down - I've been beat
I've been so tired-that I could not speak
I've been so lost thatt I could not see
I wanted things that were out of reach
then I found you and you helped me through
and ya showed me what to do
And that's why I'm comin' back to you...

Like a star that guides a ship across the ocean
that's how your love will take me home back to you
And if I wish upon that star - someday I'll be where you are 
I know that day is coming soon - ya, I'm coming back to you.
You've been alone, but ya did not show it
You've been in pain, but did not know it
Let me do what I needed to - you were there when I needed you
Mighta let you down, mighta messed you round
but ya never changed your point of view
and that's why I'm comin' back to you...

I'm coming back to you
I'm coming back to you
I'm coming back to you
That day is coming soon

I'm coming back to you


When You're Gone 
gora

I've been wandering around the house all night
Wondering what the hell to do
I'm trying to concentrate but all I can think of is you
Well the phone don't ring cuz my friends ain't home
I'm tired of being all alone
Got the tv on cuz the radio's playing songs that remind me of you

Baby when you're gone - I realize I'm in love
The days go on and on - and the nights just seem so long
Even food don't taste that good - drink ain't doing what it should
Things just feel so wrong - baby when you're gone

I've been driving up and down these streets
Trying to find somewhere to go
Ya I'm lookin' for a familiar face but there's no one I know

This is torture - this is pain - it feels like I'm gonna go insane
I hope you're coming back real soon -cuz I don't know what to do


Please Forgive Me 
gora

Still feels like our first night together
Feels like the first kiss
It's gettin' better baby
No one can better this
Still holdin' on, you're still the one
First time our eyes met - same feelin' I get
Only feels much stronger - wanna love ya longer
You still turn the fire on...
So if you're feelin' lonely don't - you're the only one I ever want
I only wanna make it good - so if I love ya a little more than I should

Please forgive me - I know not what I do
Please forgive me - I can't stop lovin' you
Don't deny me - this pain I'm going through
Please forgive me - if I need ya like I do
Please believe me - every word I say is true
Please forgive me - I can't stop lovin' you

Still feels like our best times are together
Feels like the first touch - still gettin' closer baby
Can't get close enough
Still holdin' on - still number one
I remember the smell of your skin - I remember everything
I remember all your moves - I remember you yeah
I remember the nights - ya know I still do
So if you're feelin' lonely don't - you're the only one I ever want
I only wanna make it good - so if I love ya a little more than I should

Please forgive me - I know not what I do
Please forgive me - I can't stop lovin' you
Don't deny me this pain I'm going through
Please forgive me - if I need ya like I do
Oh believe me - every word I say is true
Please forgive me - I can't stop lovin' you

One thing I'm sure of - is the way we make love
And one thing I depend on - is for us to stay strong
With every word and every breath I'm prayin'
That's why I'm sayin'

Please forgive me - I know not what I do
Please forgive me - I can't stop lovin' you
Don't deny me this pain I'm going through
Please forgive me - if I need ya like I do
Babe believe me - every word I say is true
Please forgive me - if I can't stop lovin' you
Never leave me - I don't know what I'd do
Please forgive me - I can't stop lovin' you
Can't stop lovin' you


The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You 
gora

I don't look good in no Armani Suits 
No Gucci shoes - or designer boots 
I've tried the latest lines from A to Z 
But there's just one thing that looks good on me 

The only thing I want 
The only thing I need 
The only thing I choose 
The only thing that looks good on me...is you 

I'm not satisfied with Versace style 
Put those patent leather pants - in the circular file 
Sometimes I think - I might be lookin' good 
But there's only one thing that fits like it should 

The only thing I want 
The only thing I need 
The only thing I choose 
The only thing that looks good on me...is you 

Ya it's you - it could only be you 
Nobody else will ever do 
Ya baby it's you - that I stick to 
Ya we stick like glue 

The only thing I want 
The only thing I need 
The only thing I choose 
The only thing that looks good on me...is you


Inside Out 
gora

The biggest lie you ever told 
Your deepest fear 'bout growin' old
The longest night you ever spent 
The angriest letter you never sent
The boy you swore you'd never leave 
The one you kissed on new years's eve
The sweetest dream you had last night 
Your darkest hour, your hardest fight

I wanna know you - like I know myself
I'm waitin' for you - there ain't no one else
Talk to me baby - scream and shout
I want to know you - inside out
I wanna dig down deep - I wanna lose some sleep
I wanna scream and shout - I wanna know you inside out
I wanna take my time - I wanna know your mind
Ya know there ain't no doubt - I wanna know you inside out

The saddest song you ever heard 
The most you said with just one word
The loneliest prayer you ever prayed 
The truest vow you ever made
What makes you laught, what makes you cry
What makes you mad, what gets you by
You highest hight, your lowest low 
These things I want to know

I wanna know you - like I know myself
I'm waitin' for you - there ain't no one else
Talk to me baby - scream and shout
I want to know you - inside out
I wanna dig down deep - I wanna lose some sleep
I wanna scream and shout - I wanna know you inside out
I wanna take my time - I wanna know your mind
Ya know there ain't no doubt - I wanna know you inside out
I wanna know your sould - I wanna lose control
C'mon n' let it out - I wanna know you inside out
Ya gotta dig down deep - I wanna lose some slieep
I wanna scream and shout - I wanna know you inside out
Tell me everything...


Don't Give Up 
gora

Don't give it up
Don't give it up

Don't worry if the sun don't shine
You've seen it before, you don't need to worry
Every day's an uphill climb, nothing has changed
Believe me when I tell ya

Don't give it up
Don't give it up

Don't give up - you know it's true
Gotta do what you wanna do
Oh yeah
Don't give it up - you don't have to
Gotta do what you wanna do
Oh yeah 

Live from South Africa

Rock Steady  
gora 

You need a man that'll treat you like the woman you are 
Those little boys are just fooling around with your heart 
Whatcha gonna do now that you're all alone? 
You need a rock not a rollin' stone 
Yeah so when a boy 
just ain't enough 
You need a man made of stronger stuff 
Get ready 
Rock steady all night long 

Rock steady till the light of dawn
Slow and easy tried and true 
Rock steady 
Just me and you 

You need somebody who will help you with your heavy load 
Well I've been there baby 
Lord give me a rock and roll 
Well I can bend but I won't break
cause you ain't got what I can take 
So when you're tired of those little girls 
you want a woman that'll rock your world 
Get ready 

Rock steady all night long 
Rock steady till the light of dawn
Slow and easy tried and true 
Rock steady 
Just me and you 

Amateurs and dilettantes 
They can't give you what you really want
When all the other have been untrue 
I'll give you something you can hold on to 
Rock steady all night long 
Rock steady till the light of dawn
Slow and easy tried and true 
Rock steady 
Just me and you
