1I remember finding out about you
2I've lost at love before
3I know when to go out
4First when there's nothing
5Oh darlin', I'm so lonely without you
6Midnight on the water
7Shadows grow so long before my eyes
8At first I was afraid
9What I feel, I can't say
10Standing in line, marking time
11When the truth is found to be lies

16I found a picture of you
17We skipped the light fandango

25Well I think it's time to get ready
