    I Can't Turn You Loose
    By Otis Redding
    Album: The Price To Play. Posted by hollyh


    I can't turn you loose
    If I do I'm gonna lose my mind
    I can't never turn you loose
    If I do I'm gonna lose my pride

    I can't turn you loose for nobody
    I love you baby, yes I do
    Hip-shakin' mama I want you
    I'm in love with only you
    Do it baby, why don't you
    I'm gonna give you everything that you want
    I got to have it
    I got to have it baby
    I never can turn you loose
    Oh, everybody knows

    I can't turn you loose
    I'm in love and it's a cryin' shame
    I can't never turn you loose
    If I do then I'm the one to blame

    I can't turn you loose for nobody
    I said I love you baby, yes I do
    Hip-shakin' mama I want you
    I'm in love with only you
    Do it baby, why don't you
    I'm gonna give you everything that you want
    I've got to have it baby
    I've got to have you baby
    I can't turn you loose
    Oh, no no no no

    I've got have you baby now by my side
    I've got to have you making love and keep me satisfied
    I've got to have you baby, don't you ever go away
    I've got to have you baby, now please don't stray...

    I Have Tried
    Album: Alan Price -Archive. Posted by JJean

    Dancing light of love on your face
    Always brings beauty to the darkest place
    Of my heart
    Necessary day of light is almost gone
    Because your kiss is like the morning sun
    For me
    I know that I've broken all the rules
    I've let myself be fortune's fool
    I know that I have tried in vain
    To make the sun out of the rain
    I have tried
    I have tried
    Oh my dear I apologise once more
    And I've returned to knock upon the door
    For your love
    My situation is forever overturned
    I have never had to deal with a love like this
    That burns in me
    I know that I will tumble down
    Will never wear a hero's crown
    I know that I won't win the game
    But you have love, my love, the same
    I have tried
    I have tried

    I know that I've broken all the rules
    I've let myself be fortune’s fool
    I know that I won't win the game
    But you’ll have love, my love, the same
    I have tried
    I have tried
    Ooo...............

    I Just Got Love
    Album: Shouts Across The Street. Posted by hollyh


    I can't dance
    Do any of those stupid things
    I don't smile
    Can't talk about anything
    I just got love, I just got love, I just got love
    I just got love, I just got love, I just got love

    I can't write
    There's no letters with my name
    I'm not bright
    But I reckon that we're all the same
    I just got love, I just got love, I just got love
    I just got love, I just got love, I just got love

    I can't sing
    Except if it's out of tune
    I can't rhyme
    Unless there is a moon in June
    I just got love, I just got love, I just got love
    I just got love, I just got love, I just got love

    You know I just got love
    I ain't got no money...
    I just got love, love, love, love...

    I Know When I've Had Enough
    Album: Shouts Across The Street. Posted by hollyh

    Oh, yes, I like my ladies
    Oh, Yes, I like my girls
    Oh yes, I like to take them with me all around the world
    But I know when I've had enough
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    And baby, that's now.

    Oh yes, I like a drink
    And I like some company
    And I like to drink with my friends 'cos it makes me feel so free
    But I know when I've had enough
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    And baby, that's now.

    Oh, yes, I like good music
    And I like it loud and strong
    I like good music 'cos it shows me when I'm wrong
    But I know when I've had enough
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    And baby, that's now.

    Oh, yes, I like my money
    And all the things it brings to me
    But it seems all the hands are grasping out saying give it to me
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    Yes, I know when I've had enough
    And baby, that's now.

    I Love You Too
    Album: Lucky Day. Posted by JJean


    You may have cried and died a little tonight
    You may have wished it was happening out of sight
    But I saw it happen to you
    There was nothing I could do
    But just remember tonight that I love you too
    So you thought his love was gonna last forever
    And you didn't guess that he'd turn and walk away
    Yes I saw the tear in your eye as he said his last goodbye
    So just remember tonight that I love you too
    Dream are only for dreamers
    And love only lasts until believers leave us
    You may not know that I am the man that you're meant for
    And don't expect it all to fall into place
    So forget what that man's done to you
    Strike him from your memory do
    And just remember tonight that I love you too.

    I'm a Gambler
    Album: Alan Price. Posted by hollyh

    I'm a gambler
    I keep on taking chances
    And I'm playing with my time
    And if I lose, well, now, I ain't gonna worry, Lord
    I keep layin' it down hard on the line.

    I'm a gambler
    A little gentleman of fortune
    I don't owe nobody nothing
    And if I did, well, I ain't gonna worry, Lord
    I'll give it all away and I'll start all over again

    I'm a gambler
    I keep on taking chances
    But my feet are always on the ground
    I'm a gambler
    I keep on taking chances
    But I move so fast that they never hear a sound.

    Imagination Sea
    Album: Based On A True Story. Posted by hollyh


    So the story begins
    As he searched for paradise
    Thinking it was a place
    Instead of a state of mind
    He asked the way from the wise
    As they smiled and they turned away
    Faded into the mist on a perfect summer's day

    When someone big in your life is suddenly whisked away
    All those terrible tears
    Empty and lonely days
    Was it something you said? you wonder
    Then softly pray
    Set me free, let me go, let my spirit live again

    What's my life for?
    Can I make more
    of love than love has made of me?
    Oh, this life seems
    Made of strange dreams
    Adrift on imagination sea

    What's my life for?
    Can I make more
    of love than love has made of me?
    Oh, this life seems
    Made of strange dreams
    Adrift on imagination sea

    One more kiss on the cheek
    And you are a child again
    The unconditional love
    That cures you of every pain
    Finding someone to trust
    With feelings you've found again
    They're buried deep in your heart
    Let your spirit live again

    And what's my life for?
    Can I make more
    of love than love has made of me?
    Oh, this life seems
    Made of strange dreams
    Adrift on imagination sea.

    In Times Like These
    Album: Between Today And Yesterday. Posted by hollyh


    In times like these, it's good to have a friend
    In times like these, on whom you can depend on
    For a helping hand, now isn't it grand?

    When folks next door help you raise a smile
    Makes you forget your troubles for a while
    Now that's what friends are for
    I've told you before

    And when the money doesn't go far
    We end up drinking out of jam jars
    When there's no meat on the table
    We live as well as we are able

    It's just not true that we are all alone
    It's just not true, 'cause someone must have done it to
    Somebody else, or else you wouldn't be here.
    Do I make myself clear?

    And when the money doesn't go far)
    We end up drinking out of jam jars
    When there's no meat on the table
    We live as well as we are able

    In times like these, it's good to have a friend
    In times like these, on whom you can depend on
    For a helping hand (a helping hand)
    For a helping hand (a helping hand)
    For a helping hand, isn't it grand?

    We all need a helping hand.

    by Screamin' Jay Hawkins
    Posted by hollyh


    I put a spell on you
    Because you're mine
    You better stop the things that you do
    I ain't lyin'
    No, I ain't lyin'
    I just can't stand it babe
    The way you're always running round
    I just can't stand it
    The way you always put me down
    I put a spell on you
    Because you're mine

    I put a spell on you
    Because you're mine
    You'd better stop the things that you do
    No, no I ain't lying
    I said I ain't lying
    I just can't stand it babe
    The way you're always tryin' to put me down
    I just can't stand it
    The way you're always running 'round
    I put a spell on you
    Because you're mine
    Because you're mine

    I said I love you, I love you, I love you
    Oh baby how
    And I don't care if you don't want me
    I said I'm yours, I'm yours right now
    I put a spell on you
    Because you're mine
    I put a spell on you
    I just can't stand it, the way you're always tryin' to put me down
    I put a spell on you
    I put a spell, I put a spell on you...

    Is It Right?
    By Theodore Thunder/David Rose
    Album: Alan Price. Posted by hollyh

    Flowers are still in bloom
    The garden is out of tune
    Summer has been and gone
    But still all the flowers are lingering on

    Like the weather you come and go
    And where you come from nobody knows
    Alll my friends say what a hopeless mess I'm in
    And all I ever do is cry
    I can't remember some of the places I've been
    And I don't even know some of the faces I've seen

    Is it wrong, wrong, wrong, or is it right?
    I just can't tell you
    It takes a long, long time
    To get it right
    I just can't wait that long

    Come on, girl, you know I'm blue
    I've got my sense of direction following you
    Like the weather you come and go
    And where you're comin'g from nobody knows
    I can't remember some of the places I've been
    And I don't even know some of the faces I've seen

    Is it wrong, wrong, wrong or is it right?
    How can I make you be my light
    My sunshine every day

    Why do I feel so blue
    Is it because we're through
    I think it's down to you
    'Cos somehow I'm hoping my dreams maybe are gonna come true

    It's Not Easy
    Album: Metropolitan Man. Posted by JJean

    It's not easy to explain
    Why it's hard for me to refrain
    For hurting you and searching for some feeling
    If I knew myslf so well
    It would be easier to tell
    Why hurting you would help me face the feeling
    Life is so short and time is too long
    To spend on mistakes when we know it's wrong
    We must never say goodbye
    We must look fate in the eye
    I'm hurting you and searching for some feeling
    Life is to know and find what is real
    Excuse me revealing those lines that I feel
    It's not easy on your own
    When all around you friends have known
    Your life was built on selfish preservation
    And behind the smile you wear
    Is a heart that tried to care
    And a soul too much involved with sweet sensation.

    It's Not Hard
    [size+x-small]Album: Based On A True Story. Posted by hollyh[/size]


    It's not hard to believe
    That the sun will always rise
    That the moon will take its place
    And that the stars will stand in line
    It's not hard to believe
    That the wind will move the trees
    That the wind will bring the rain
    And wealth will bring you to your knees

    We're unsuspecting victims of eternal circumstance
    We're only broken pieces in this crazy game of chance

    It's not hard to imagine
    That the sea will break to shore
    That whatever used to be
    Will be changed forevermore
    It's not hard to remember
    When the times they were so good
    We must always remember
    That after rain there is a flood

    We're unsuspecting victims of eternal circumstance
    We're only broken pieces in this crazy game of chance

    Underneath the surface you have peeled
    When your true existence is revealed
    From the outer skin down to the core
    The "you" you are will be the same forevermore.

    It's not hard to believe
    That the sun will always rise
    That the moon will take its place
    And that the stars will stand in line
    It's not hard to believe
    That the wind will move the trees
    That the wind will bring the rain
    And wealth will bring you to your knees.

    We're unsuspecting victims of eternal circumstance
    We're only broken pieces in this crazy game of chance.

    I've Been Hurt
    Album: Alan Price. Posted by hollyh

    I've been hurt, been made to feel so bad
    I've been accused of sins I've never had
    I've been told how to organise my life
    I've seen blood but I never held the knife
    I've been hurt, been made to feel so bad

    I've been used, manipulated's what I've been
    I've been cursed by a mean old gypsy queen
    I've been told I've wrecked a dozen lives or more
    I was innocent, 'cos I didn't know the score
    I've been used, manipulated's what I've been.
    Now tell 'em what I mean..

    [instrumental break]

    I've been fooled, but I won't be used again
    I'll be cool, no Pavlov's dog inside my brain
    I remember what she done to me
    I will taste the fruit long before I buy the tree
    I've been fooled, but I won't be fooled again.
    I've been hurt, I've been hurt, I've been hurt....

    I Wanna Dance
    Album: Alan Price. Posted by hollyh

    It might be because we're under southern stars
    Or under a moon that shines for hours and hours
    Maybe it's just because a girl like you
    Can make me do anything that I wanna do
    I wanna dance with you baby, dance with you baby, don't you know
    I wanna dance with you baby, dance with you baby, don't you know

    Oh, let's leave the others and we'll dance alone
    Darlin', I want you for my very own
    Down on the beach by the rolling sea
    It's amazing what the music can free in me
    I wanna dance with you baby, dance with you baby, don't you know
    I wanna dance with you baby, dance with you baby, don't you know

    I wanna dance

    I wanna dance with you baby, dance with you baby don't you know
    I wanna dance with you baby, dance with you baby don't you know

    Oh, a little more food and a glass more wine
    I may be anybody's but at least you're mine
    It's a shame that a day like this will have to end
    But please remember me because I'll always need a friend
    I wanna dance with you baby, dance with you baby don't you know
    I wanna dance with you baby, dance with you baby don't you know
