ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ALWAYS
© words & music by Gary T. Carr

Look into my eyes and see, how your gaze has captured me,
And my heart keeps saying... always.
Like the two stars in the sky, shining down on you and I,
They're together side by side... always.

And when I held you in my arms I knew...
I love you, I love you - Michelle.

Like the sunshine in the sky, when a dark cloud passes by,
There's a rainbow coming... always.

And when I held you in my arms I knew...
I love you, I love you - Michelle.

Like the stars up in the sky, shining down on you and I,
They're together side by side... always.

And the sun up the sky, when a dark cloud passes by,
There's a rainbow coming... always.

TAKE IT AWAY
© words & music by Gary T. Carr

Passion and lace - she set my soul on fire,
With cool desperation and a burning desire.
Painful and reckless - touch and go everyday,
Whenever I obsess over someone this way... man it hurts.

It hurts so bad - when you feel lonely
It hurts so bad - when you're alone
It hurts so bad - take it way... take it away.

Talk about love that's young and strong and true,
But I think really for me well that's illusion for you.
Try to reach out and take another chance but,
How long you gonna stand there with your heart in your hands... cause it hurts.

It hurts so bad - to feel lonely
It hurts so bad - when you're alone
It hurts so bad - take it way... Oh Lord, take it away.

So you think you're my inspiration... I know.
Something they say about 'Real Love to be',
To see if it returns - first you got to set it free... and that hurts.

Passion and lace - she set my soul on fire,
With cool desperation and a burning desire.
Painful and reckless - touch and go everyday,
Whenever I obsess over someone that way... yea it hurts.

It hurts so bad - take it away.

WHAT LOVE MEANS
© words & music by Gary T. Carr

Whatever happened to - the girl I was starting to believe?

Don't know much about love but I know that I wanted to hold you.
Don't know much about love but I know that I wanted to share... with you.
Oh baby I don't know how to feel that way.
I'm beginning to see what you mean when you say -
that you really don't know what love means.

Don't know much about love but I know that I want to be near you.
Don't know much about love but I know I really wanted to care... for you.
Oh baby I don't know how to feel that way.
Man I don't even know what to do, what to say -
Guess I really don't know what love means... what love means.

Whatever happened to - the girl I was starting to believe?

Don't know much about love but I know that I wanted you with me.
Don't know much about love but I know I really wanted you there.
Ah darlin' I don't know what tomorrow will bring.
But I want you to know you can wear my ring.
Maybe someday we'll learn what love means... what love means.

DRAW THE LINE
© words & music by Gary T. Carr

Here we go - oh and I told you so.
All I can hear, all I can hear... whoa whoa whoa whoa!

It's just a matter of time, before I lose my mind.
Save a nickel, save a dime...
Draw the line - draw the line.

It's getting hard to do, living up to you.
Just a game, and we hate to lose...
Draw the line - draw the line.

Somewhere out in the night I call you - shine a light on me.
Turn a wrong into right now won't you - shine a light on me.
When the deep and the dark surround you - shine a light on me.
When the end of the line's before - you gotta be free... gotta be free.

Wait! Wait a little longer baby I'm trying.
Wait a little longer love means surviving - not just dying.

Even if I say, it doesn't matter anyway.
Only give, what you take away...
Draw the line - yea draw the line.

Somewhere out in the night I call you - shine a light on me.
Turn a wrong into right now won't you - shine a light on me.
So the deep and the dark surround you - shine your light on me.
So the end of the line's before - you gotta be free... got to be free.

Wait! Wait a little longer I'm not a criminal.
Wait a little longer love aint so minimal... so minimal.

Even if I say, it doesn't matter anyway.
Only give, what you take away...
Draw the line - yea draw the line.

Ragtime Girls
© words and music by Gary T. Carr
Piano arrangement Kevin Kelly

When the girls are looking good,
You thing they might - I know they would!
All I want to do is dance with you and you and you and you…
All I want is a chance with you and you and you and you… baby.
Oh the Ragtime ladies.

When the heat is really hot,
The fever's strong with what you've got!
All your moves are looking tough and you never ever get enough…
Well I don't know but I could try to give you what would satisfy you… baby.
Oh the Ragtime ladies.

Ragtime Girls they got the fever
Once she gets it never leaves her
Ragtime Girls they get me going
I can't help it starts to showing
Ragtime fever keeps it growing
Ragtime Girls just can't help knowing…
Hey - I want you!

(Repeat)

HIGH TIMES AGAIN
© words & music by Gary T. Carr

Traveling alone down this long lonesome road, I've got you in the back of my mind.
Turn on the radio and I hear your voice saying "Why can't we keep on trying?"
I look in the mirror and I see your reflection... the tears falling down your eyes.
One time a winner, forever a sinner - I'm alone riding high times again.

Time passes slowly as I speed down this road, I'm in search of my own peace of mind.
I remember your laughter, your sweet gentle smile, I remember your heart close to mine.
I remember the good times that we had together... your green soft spoken eyes.
One time a winner, forever a sinner - I'm alone riding high times again.

Alone riding high times again,
Making up for lost time that I never could find - and I know whatever I do...
Girl I'm always gonna love only you.

(Repeat)

Traveling alone down this long lonesome road, brother I think that I missed it.
Leaving down home for this cold dirty road, I tell you mother you know that I missed it.
Wherever I go and whatever I do... If ever I know what you already knew,
Someday this road - it's gonna wind back to you.

Round 'em up, round 'em up, round 'em up
Darling were through.

A LITTLE ROCK & ROLL
© words & music by Gary T. Carr

Out of control like a new sensation
It's like an overload in the whole situation
Ah and it shook me up a bit
Somewhere down the line you take what you can find and you move a little bit
Down on your knees you pray for release and improve a little bit
Well that sure does it for me.

You think you need the coke to keep you going
Swinging all night, rocking and rolling… no, no, no!
We're gonna shake it up a bit
We're gonna shake it up a bit, listen to me
Give all you've got and you'll never be sorry

And it shook.

Ah, well now you know
How we will unfold
A little rock & roll

Out of control like a new sensation
It caused an overload in the whole situation…
Ah it shook.

Ah, well now you know
How we will unfold
A little rock & roll

A SPECIAL FRIEND
© words & music by Gary T. Carr

Mama - oh sweet, sweet mama.
Here I come around again. Can I take another round again?
I love you so. Don't ever go. I need you so...

Give a little bit back - you know I always love you.
And baby give a little bit back - you know I always love you.

Mama - sweet, sweet mama.
How could we know? What always goes - but never shows...

Pretty baby, I really need you to give me it all.
I really do need you.

Warmest memories from a very special friend.
I do give you - the love I send.

Give a little bit back - you know I always love you.
Oh baby give a little bit back - you know I always love you.

Mama - sweet, sweet mama.
I love you... and I need you.

Warmest memories from a very special friend.
I do give you - the love I send.

THINKING ABOUT YOU
© words & music by Gary T. Carr

Love can sometimes lead to pain.
But nothing ventured, nothing gained my love...
Thinking about you, yeah you.
Thinking about you.

When I'm alone from day to day,
I never seem to get away my love...
Thinking about you, yeah you.
Thinking about you.

Life goes on - then slips away.
Don't let love end up... the very same.

Remember how we used to say? Oh my, my...
We're not ever gonna change our minds.
Thinking about you, yeah you.
Thinking about you.

Love can sometimes lead to pain.
But nothing ventured, nothing gained my love...
Thinking about you, yeah you.
Thinking about you.

I think about you, yeah yeah.

Some like it hot, baby don't hold me down

Never want to leave ya

Never want to bleed ya.

A YEAR LATER
© words and music by Gary T. Carr

Why can't we have it our way… looking back on Monday?

A magical mystery
A radical history
You took a magical mystery, hold on wait a minute…
Don't just go away.

First take a magical mister
Our lovable kidster
And what a serious minister, hold on wait a minute…
Please don't go away.

Don't you know we'll wait a little longer
Hold on tight we'll be little stronger
Baby don't you know we'll wait a little bit longer…
We'll wait a little bit more.

Hey Paul, Ringo
Come on George lord knows you know
Hey Sean, Yoko
Everyone for evermore...

A year later - how you gonna buy me love?
Come on together, back to where you started from.

Magical mystery
A tragical history
What a fanatical sinistry, hold on wait a minute…
Please don't go away.

Why can't we have it our way… looking out for Monday?

Hey Paul, Ringo
Come on George lord knows you know
Hey Sean, Yoko
Everyone for evermore...

A year later - how you gonna buy me love?
Come on together, back to where you once belonged.

Love is all you need - and we loved you.

REAL LOVE
© words and music by Gary T. Carr

Hear me now
The time is here and I'm so scared somehow
I want to spend my life with real love, like I feel love whenever you're around.

Hold me now
Hold on to me baby don't ever set me down
Keep hugging me tightly and show me real love, make me feel love forever starting right now.

For better,
Don't you know, it's gonna be that way for so many years.
Or for worse,
Doesn't matter much to me anyway
I finally found what I've been living for.

Do you know what that means to me?
Baby I finally… I found real love.
Well can you feel what that's gotta be?
Baby we finally… we found real love.
Real Love.

For richer,
You and I babe, we're gonna see our way together through the years.
Or for poorer,
If that's the way it's got to be - I don't care girl
I finally found who I've been dreaming for.

Do you know what that means to me?
Baby I finally… I found real love.
Well can you feel what that's gotta be?
Baby we finally… we found real love.
Real Love.

TENDER TOUCH
© music by Gary T. Carr
Lyrics by Ellinore Conti (Craig's song)

When the tides of life run against you,
And dark shadows fall.
Hold on, no fading of hope, no end to trust,
Only victory and joy.

The burdens you bear though weary… and rough,
And we don't understand.
Soon, it will pass, and bright lights,
Will all shine through for you.

Happy days we all will share, with open humble hearts.
You ask me how I know it's true?
Sealed with a tender touch.

Take my hand and hold it.
Let me share with you what's inside.
Our bondage of love is pure magic.
Our fortress of faith is our wall.

And it's built, on solid rock.
And no way - can it ever fall.

The walk of life once was empty - and cold.
Dark, shadows lifted. Oh bright sun…
Come beaming through for you.

Happy days we all will share, with open humble hearts.
You ask me how I know it's true?
Sealed with a tender touch.

(Repeat)

BACK IN THE DAY
© words and music by Gary T. Carr

Taken back in time it's all a state of mind and I wish that I could do it again.
You know it opened up my eyes and made me realize…
I never understood it then.

Time goes by - we're young,
And we never stop to reason why - so young.
Didn't even realize, that our lives were passing by.

Taken back in time reflections in my mind, oh I want to see you again.
You know it opened up my eyes and made me realize…
I never understood it then.

Time goes by - we're young,
And we never stop to reason why - so young.
Didn't even realize, that our lives were passing by.

I want to go back in the day - back in the day oh yeah.
I want to live back in the day - back in the day oh yeah.
Do you remember back in the day?
Do you remember back in the day?
Back in the day - oh yeah.

Taken back in time it's all a state of mind and I wish that I could live it again.
You know it opened up my eyes and made me realize…
I never understood it then.

Time goes by - we're young,
And we never stop to reason why - so young.
Didn't even realize, that our lives were passing by.

I want to go back in the day - back in the day oh yeah.
I want to live back in the day - back in the day oh yeah.
Do you remember back in the day?
Do you remember back in the day?
Back in the day - oh yeah.
