Track Name: Please Believe Me
Don’t forget the fact that you made it so hard for me
Every time I saw your face, it made just want to leave
Please Believe Me, When I Tell Ya

Time and time again I get a feeling I just want to cry
You left me all alone, by myself, and I just don’t know why
Please Believe Me, When I Tell Ya

So the story goes on
Point your eyes where you want
But it’s been so long

And I’ve been good to you
And I know it now
Oh, yes, I will show it now
Oh, oh

I give you all I got to give if you just give it back to me
Though you say you need me, you know you just want to be free
Please Believe Me, When I Tell Ya

Every now and then I look back and I wonder why
You left me all alone, by myself, and I just don’t know why
Please Believe Me, When I Tell Ya

So the story goes on
Point your eyes where you want
But it’s been so long

And I’ve been good to you
And I know it now
Oh, yes, I will show it now
Oh, oh
Track Name: Stay Near
Oh yes she wants me for herself, oh yes she does
She doesn’t need nobody else, that’s just because
She’s always there, I was alone, I was alone
She treats me right, that’s all I know, thats what I want

Don’t you go away from here
Won’t you please just Stay Near

I give her all, oh all the time, like no one else
I know I’m fine, if she is mine all for myself
She’s always there, I was alone, I was alone
She treats me right, that’s all I know, that’s what I want

Don’t you go away from here
Won’t you please just Stay Near

Don’t you go away from here
Won’t you please just Stay Near

Don’t you go away from here
Won’t you please just Stay Near
Track Name: That's The Way God Planned It
Why can’t we be humble
Like the good Lord say
He promised to exalt us
But low is the way

Why men be so greedy
When there’s so much left?
All things are God given
And they all have been blessed

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be

Let not your heart be troubled
Let mourning, sobbing cease
Learn to help one other
And live in perfect peace

If we could just be humble
Like the good Lord say
He promised to exalt
But low is the way

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be

I hope you get this message
When you won’t others will
You don’t understand me
But I love you still

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be
Track Name: You'll Always Be There For Me
I never took your words for granted
Your dreams have spoken through me
Take time for all that you imagined
To become reality

You knew always, just how to be
And you gave me a real sense of me
Where I go, one thing I know,
You’ll always be there for me

And now you think your part is over
That you no longer guide me
The truth is now your role greater
When I’m just starting to see

You knew always, just how to be
And you gave me a real sense of me
Where I go, one thing I know,
You’ll always be there for me

You knew always, just how to be
And you gave me a real sense of me
Where I go, one thing I know,
You’ll always be there for me

Where I go, one thing I know,
You’ll always be there for me
Track Name: Operator
Operator, could you help me place this call
See the number on the matchbook is old and faded
She’s livin’ in LA
With my best old ex-friend Ray
A guy she said she knew well, and sometimes hated

Isn’t that the way they say it goes
But let’s forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
I’ve overcome the blow
I’ve learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn’t real
But that’s not the way it feels

Operator, could help me place this call
Well I can read the number that you just gave me
There’s something in my eye’s
You know it happens every time
I think about the love that I thought would save me

Isn’t that the way they say it goes
But let’s forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
I’ve overcome the blow
I’ve learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn’t real
But that’s not the way it feels

That’s not the way it feels

Operator, let’s forget about this call
There’s no one there that I really wanted to talk to
Thank you for your time
You’ve been so much more than kind
You can keep the dime

Isn’t that the way they say it goes
Let’s forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
I’ve overcome the blow
I’ve learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn’t real
But that’s not the way it feels

That’s not the way it feels
That’s not the way it feels
