TLC 04:35
TLC Couldn’t hear alarm bells ringing, we never saw the danger signs. When misery comes calling, we’re at the mercy of mankind. This is just another season, another year we’ll soon forget. You can raise a child to reason, but you can’t teach them self-respect. Chorus: You know the reckoning's in sight, armed with emotion, but we never learned to fight, our cup of sorrow is full enough to share, and all we’re really looking for is tender lovin’ care Oh, all we’re looking for Yeah, all we’re looking for is tender lovin’ care Oh, all we’re looking for Yeah, all we’re looking for is tender lovin’ care Oooh, tender lovin’ care It’s gonna take a fierce battalion, to disengage old fashioned rules. set out to find our future leaders in the hallways of their high schools. They say the body’s just a vessel, a place where heart and mind collide. While God is slipping through our pockets, can we say faith is on our side? Chorus 2x

Dear Jennie 04:07
Dear Jennie, where are you keeping yourself these days? I’ve searched three cities for you and can’t seem to find a trace. Dear Jennie, you always had your head in a book so I’ve written a note for you on a page of every library book on the shelf. Your name’s on countless pages, and I hope somehow it makes its way to you. Though the odds are against us, I guess I’ll take my chances, cause I can’t help believing that one day fate’s gonna pull through. Dear Jennie, I found your letters underneath my bed. We thought we’d spelled it out but there was much left unsaid Dear Jennie, you might call me crazy, but I’m stuck on old memories and this time I can’t let them go to waste. I know I’m digging through the rubble, but time will shine a tarnished history. Oh, let’s start it over and write a different ending, cause I’ve traveled a distance from the fool I used to be. Help me put these fears to rest Oh Jennie, won’t you write me at the old address? (Instrumental) I might be digging through the rubble but time will shine a tarnished history. Oh, let’s start it over And write a different ending, cause I’ve traveled a distance from the fool I used to be. If time’s the only test, I never loved you any less. Oh Jennie, won’t you write me at the old address?

Every day is waking up to find its own salvation And every day I found salvation in you But now I know that everything must happen for & reason And Iʼve been reasoning that everything will be better when weʼre through. I'll tell ya You canʼt love me like I loved you You canʼt fool me when it ainʼt true You can'ʼt love me like I was loving you No, no, no, no, no you canʼt, baby you canʼt Oh love, love, love is lack of wisdom Makes you feel so brave until it knocks you to the ground But now Iʼve found thereʼs only senselessness, only senselessness in suffering And I canʼt find no sense, canʼt find no sense, in keeping you around Because You canʼt love me like I loved you You canʼt fool me when it ainʼt true You can'ʼt love me like I was loving you No, no, no, no, no you canʼt, baby you canʼt All these tears were never meant to be But we loved without a warranty And now Iʼm left to try and understand How my love was wasted on a broken man, oh You canʼt love me like I loved you You canʼt fool me when it ainʼt true You can'ʼt love me like I was loving you No, no, no, no, You canʼt love me like I loved you You canʼt fool me when it ainʼt true You can'ʼt love me like I was loving you No, no, no, no, no You canʼt

Josephine 03:08
Josephine Can’t seem to find the words to sing You know I never meant to doubt you Couldn’t write a song without you Josephine I know apologizing doesn’t change a thing, but if you’re listening, I promise I’ll be better I just want more time together Josephine If only I had listened when you whispered in my ear, I should have known you’d know just how to put it right But since you’ve gone, I’ve been searching for ideas in the darkness, Oh, Darling, Just shine a little light Instr. Josephine I know you’ve moved along to better things But if this melody should ever come to find you Well, I hope that it reminds you of the songs we have yet to sing I may not be your rolling stone But if you’re lonely out there on your own You don’t have to be alone You don’t have to be alone Oh, won’t you come back home Josephine

I don’t wanna suffer all this suffering I’m waiting here while the walls are caving in There’s gotta be a way For me to find a little faith I just wanna let love in Without suffering Without suffering I don’t wanna make the same mistake Putting all my trust in a love that’s bound for heartbreak I gotta learn to lose and make room for something new If only I could let love in Without suffering Without suffering Yeah, my heart’s a little heavy, baby Cause I’ve been carrying this pain with me It’s been a year since you hurt me so bad But I’m moving past it, I’ve got to let go Every morning as the day begins,  I’m feelin’ love, gotta let it in I feel alive in the skin I’m in Gonna love without suffering Every morning as the day begins,  I’m feelin’ love, gotta let it in I’m gonna smile for the hell of it Gonna love without suffering Every morning as the day begins,  I’m feelin’ love, gotta let it in My little light’s gonna shine within Gonna love without suffering Every morning as the day begins,  I’m feelin’ love, gotta let it in I wanna dance every chance i get Gonna love without suffering Every morning as the day begins,  I’m feelin’ love, gotta let it in I feel alive in the skin I’m in Gonna love without suffering Every morning as the day begins,  I’m feelin’ love, gonna let it in Ohhhh, without suffering
