(We Have) No Secret

We have no secrets
We tell each other everything
About the lovers in our past
And why they didn't last
We share a cast of characters from
A to Z
We know each other's fantasies
And though we know each other better
when we explore
Sometimes I wish
Often I wish
That I never knew some of those
secrets of yours

The water was cold
The beach was empty but for one
Now you were lying in the sun
Wanting and needing no one
Then some child came, you never
asked for her to come
She drank a pint of your rum
And later when you told me
You said she was a bore
Sometimes I wish
Oft times I wish
That I never, never knew
Some of those secrets of yours

In the name of honesty, in the name
of what is fair
You always answer my questions
but they don't always answer my
prayers
And though I know you say that it's
me that you adore
Sometimes I wish
Often I wish
That I never, never, never knew
Some of those secrets of yours
Some of those secrets of yours
Some of those secrets of yours
We have no secrets
Telling each other most everything now


Night Owl

Now a fish kinda likes the water
And that's just where he wants to be
And a monkey kinda digs bananas
So he lives in the top of a tree
But my eyes are made for darkness
So the night time is right for me
'Cause I'm a night owl honey, sleep
all day long
I'm a night owl honey, sleep all day long

Most folks they like the daytime
'Cause they like to see the shinin' sun
They're up in the mornin'
Off and a runnin' till they're too tired
for havin' fun
But when the sun goes down
And the bright lights shine
My daytime has just begun
'Cause I'm a night owl honey, sleep
all day long
I'm a night owl honey, sleep all day long
Won't you turn out them bright
lights baby
I said they're just about to drive me
blind
Oh won't you draw them curtains for
me papa
Watch and you'll see my love light shine
Now there are two sides to this great
big world
And one of them is always night
If you can take care of business in the
sunshine baby
I guess you're gonna be alright
But don't come lookin' for me to lend
you a hand
My eyes just can't stand the light
'Cause I'm a night owl honey, sleep
all day long
'Cause I'm a night owl honey, sleep
all day long


Two Hot Girls (On A Hot Summer Night)

It happened last night, we were feeling adventurous
We put on our hells and went out for a walk
More for a drink and to have a few eyes on us
Jenny and I slipped to town for some talk
Me and Jenny,twinklin' like crystal and pennies
Two hot girls on a hot summer night
Looking for love

"Look Jenny" I said, "It's Dwight, he just came in"
I got excited, but Jenny was quick
The kettle was on and I started up steamin'
And I knew by her flirtin' she was up to her tricks
Me and Jenny, twinklin' like crystal and pennies
Two hot girls on a hot summer night
Looking for love

A song on the jukebox made me feel lonely
The kettle boiled down and evaporated me
But who was to notice 'cause Jenny was glowin'
And Dwight wass all over her like a honeybee
Two hot girls on a hot summer night
Looking for love

Maybe I shoudn't have worn such a long dress
Maybe he thinks I'm too young or too old
If I only hadn't been born with these sad eyes
Perhaps I'm too shy or too bold

Me and Jenny twinklin' like crystal and pennies
Two hot girls on a hot summer night
Looking for love

"Thanks for introducing us" said Dwight, polite
And I waved goodnight
I wondered why it wasn't me
I guess it's just the time's not right
Two hot girls on a hot summer night


You Belong To Me

Why'd you tell me this?
Were you looking for my reaction
What do you need to know
Don't you know I'll always be your girl?
You don't have to prove to me you're beautiful to strangers
I've got loving eyes of my own

You belong to me
Tell her you were fooling
You don't even know her
Tell her that I love you

You belong to me
Can it be, honey, that you're not sure
You belong to me
Thought we'd closed the book - locked the door
You don't have to prove to me that you're beautiful to strangers
I've got loving eyes of my own

And I can tell - I can tell darling
Tell her - Tell her that I love you
You belong - you belong - you belong to me
Tell her you were fooling
Tell her she doesn't even know you


Never Been Gone

The wind is coming up strong and fast
And the moon is smiling on me
Miles from nowhere so small at last
In between the sky and the sea
I'm bound for the island
The tide is with me
I think I can make it by daw

It's night on the ocean
I'm going home
And it feels like I've never
I've never been gone

Seagulls cry and the hills are green
And my friends are waiting for me
Great ambitions is all a dream
Let me drown my pride to the sea
I'm bound for the island
The tide is with me
I think I can make it by dawn

It's night on the ocean
I'm going home
And it feels like I've never
I've never been gone


My Romance

My romance doesn't have to have a moon in the sky
My romance doesn't need a blue lagoon standing by
No month of may, no twinkling stars
No hide away, no softly guitars

My romance doesn't need a castle rising in Spain
Nor a dance to a constantly surprising refrain
Wide awake I can make my most fantastic dreams come true

My romance doesn't need a thing but you
My romance doesn't need a thing but you


Jesse

Oh Mama say a prayer for me
Jessie's back in town, it won't be easy
Don't let him near me, don't let him touch me
Don't let him seize me

Jessie, I won't cut fresh flowers for you
No Jessie, and I won't make the wine cold for you
No Jessie, I won't change the sheets for you
I won't put on cologne, I won't sit by the phone for you

Annie, keep reminding me that he cut out my heart
Like a paper doll
Sally, tell me once again how he set me up
Just to see me fall

Jessie, I won't cut fresh flowers for you
No Jessie, I won't make the wine cold for you
No Jessie, I won't change the sheets for you
I won't put on cologne, I won't sit by the phone for you
No, no, no

Jessie, quick come here, I won't tell a soul
(Not even myself)
Jessie, that you've come back to me, my friends will all say
(She's gone again)
How can anyone know what you are to me
That I'm in heaven again
Because you've come back to me
Ooooh
Jessie

Jessie, I'll always cut fresh flowers for you
And Jessie, I'll always make the wine cold for you
Oh Jessie, I can easily change my mind about you
And put on cologne and sit by the phone for you
Oh yeah

Jessie
Lets open the wine
And drink to the heart
Which has a will of it's own
My friends (My friends)
It's tough for them
They're feeling bad
They think I've sunk so low

Jessie, I'll always cut fresh flowers for you
And Jessie, I will make the wine cold for you
Oh Jessie, I will change the sheets for you
And put on cologne and I will wait by the phone for you

Oh, Jessie
(La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la)
Oh Jessie
(La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la)

Jessie, I will cut fresh flowers for you
And Jessie, yeah, make the wine cold for you
Oh Jessie, and I will change the sheets for you
