Track Name: Fantasy
FANTASY

Music and lyrics - Tuck Neilson

BMI

Standing here this time like every time before
But suddenly the meaning's changed
Don't know what to do 'cause when I saw you
My priorities were rearranged
I have always felt that these dreams of mine
Were memories of a former time
But now I see you I know that it's true
I've found you please won't you be mine

Oh fantasy I see you standing there
The light in your eyes
My heart wants to cry
When I wonder if you even care
Oh fantasy I need to do what's right
But my mind is a mess
Can't handle the stress
And I just want to hold you tight

But you're walkin' away you don't the same
Way that I feel deep inside
I see through a mist I long for your kiss
These feelings I just can't hide
I wanted to succeed in this life of mine
By grabbin' for more wealth and fame
Now I feel something new just lookin' at you
And I need you to feel the same

Oh fantasy is there a chance for me
I'm looking at you
You don't know that I do
Let me show you what I can see
Oh fantasy you know we've loved before
Not this place or time but you're mine in my mine
I've promised you so much more
Oh fantasy
Oh my fantasy
I see you standing before my eyes
I can't believe that it's true
Oh my fantasy
I've always believed that I'd find you
Now you're here, my dream's come true
Oh my fantasy
Everything around has changed
And I want to hold you in my arms
Oh my fantasy
I never thought that my dream would come true
But I'm looking at you
Track Name: Number One
NUMBER ONE

Music and Lyrics - Tuck Neilson

BMI

Your fame has spread
And though others dread
The rep that you have made
You've risen fast
But that may not last
The brightest stars all fade
Your sweat and tears
Have conquered fears
That beat your prior foes
Though now you're high
You can't always fly
What comes someday will go

You ran into Number One
You ran into Number One
Number One

With all you have
You think you're bad
But you overprice your worth
You may be good
But it's understood
That now you're on my turf
So look around
You can hear the sound
Of the people on my side
You're fadin' fast
Your time is past
Get smart and hide
Track Name: You're Gonna Cry
YOU'RE GONNA CRY

Music and lyrics - Tuck Neilson

BMI

You used to say that our love was alive
And that I was your only friend
But now you say that you're tired of tryin'
And that it's time our love should end
Well I've invested too much time in you
To just sit back and watch it die
So if your mind is set on doing this
Well then, you're gonna cry

I've got the power to be everywhere you are
'Cause I'm inside your soul
You can't shut off all the years that I've loved you babe
It's beyond control
Oh you may try to kiss another man
But when you look into his eyes
You'll see me smiling back at you
And then you're gonna cry

I see the future I'm sorry for you
Because it doesn't look too bright
You spend your life with one love then another
And you never get it right
And when you're old and gray and still alone
You'll see your life was just a lie
And you'll remember what I said today
And then you're gonna cry
You're gonna cry
You're gonna cry
You're gonna cry
Track Name: Open Up Your Eyes
OPEN UP YOUR EYES

Music and Lyrics - Tuck Neilson

BMI

You can't tell me that you're knowin' what you say
I can't believe you know you're hurtin' me this way
I can't believe it what do you think you'll find
Help me understand what's on your mind

Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes now darlin'

You say it's over. It's time for movin' on
You say it's time my love was gone
But I can't shut you off you're deep inside my soul
Without you near I can't be whole

Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes

I remember the time I first say you
And I remember how you held me so near
So if you're going just kiss me as you're leavin'
And you remember that I'll always be here
I'll always be here

Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes now darlin'
You're makin' a mistake now darlin'
Open up your eyes
There's not another man who'll love you more dear
Open up your eyes
Tell me what to do to make you stay now
Open up your eyes
Look at what you're throwin' away girl
Open up your eyes

I'm cryin'
I'm cryin'
I'm cryin'
I'm cryin' for you
Track Name: My Blue Eyes
MY BLUE EYES

Music and lyrics - Tuck Neilson

BMI

I saw you on the beach
Starin' out to sea
You looked so out of reach
Tears were flowin' free
You turned and when you caught my gaze
Though not a word was spoken
I knew just by the look you gave
That your heart was broken

I know why you're here
'Cause I've been cryin' too
Sometimes it hurts so bad
You don't know what to do
You think the ocean's calling you
But that would be disaster
I've been where you are right now
I think I have an answer

Step into my deep blue eyes
Step into my deep blue eyes
Step into my deep blue eyes
And love, ooh baby, love me

Life without the pain
Someone to take your hand
Nowhere to cast the blame
I'll always understand
And the words flow silently
Lost in love beside the sea
Baby won't you heal with me
Heal with me

Step into my deep blue eyes
Track Name: Last Of My Kind
LAST OF MY KIND

Lyrics and music Tuck Neilson

BMI

Not again, you're heart is breakin'
Another man has left you cold
You close your heart 'cause again you're takin'
But you're too young to be so old.
And you were sure this time the truth was spoken
And you were sure this was an honest man
But now you know it's one more promise broken
You say it's time you cut your loss and ran

(Well I'm the last)
Last of my kind
An honest man you can believe me
(Oh I'm the last)
Last of my kind
I love you
I love you

The door's been shut you've been used to often
Why try again when you always lose
It's not to late; your heart can soften
It's up to you, but you have to choose
Please try once more because I'm different baby
I'll only speak the words I really mean
You weren't meant to live a life of sorrow
So come with me, I'll fulfill all your dreams.
Track Name: I Love You
I LOVE YOU

Music-Tuck Neilson and Bruce Smith
Lyrics-Tuck Neilson

BMI

I was born to love you
But you don't seem to understand
You say you can't trust me
You say you never can

But I will always love you
I will always be there
Give me a chance girl to show you
That I'm a guy, yeah I'm a guy who will care

You say you've heard it
So many times before
But babe can't you feel it
I'm here to give you more

And I will always love you
I will always care
When you need help I will reach you
Darlin' you know I'll always be there

I will always love you
(Yes I will girl I'll always love you)
I will always care
(You know I will girl I'll always love you)
When you need help I will reach you
(I'll be there anywhere that you are)
Darlin' you know I'll always be there
Yes I will
Track Name: Love Me Tonight
LOVE ME TONIGHT

Lyrics and Music - Tuck Neilson

BMI

The whistle has blown the seeds have been sown
It's already started
The love in our life is turning to strife
Our paths are now parted
I am going insane
You blame me for your pain

You're closing your mind while trying to find
Your life's ambition
I'm out on the floor, can't do anymore
It's a hopeless condition
I can't compete with your pride
You've got to let me inside

Love me tonight
'Cause we shouldn't be strangers
Love me tonight
I'm aware of the dangers

If you want it to last look back to the past
When you weren't so rigid
You've forged selfish chains, it's causin' you pain
Your heart is so frigid.
Reach in and restart your fire
Make me your only desire.
Track Name: Secret Doctor Dance
SECRET DOCTOR DANCE

BMI

Help me I think I'm dying
Says the old man to my face
He sees how hard I'm tryin'
But he knows he's lost his race
And help me screams the mother
With the child in her arms
The cancer has a hunger
And I can't undo its harms

To survive
I will survive
Just shut my eyes
And do the Secret Doctor Dance

Help me says the young boy
Bloods and Crypts try to stay alive
And help me plead the eyes
Of the rape that's just arrived
And help me says the addict
Who's tryin' to be free
And help me says the family
That I love but never see

To survive
I will survive
Just shut my eyes
And do the Secret Doctor Dance

Mommy I'm scared
Doctor as hospital administrator it is my duty to inform you that patient stay
is entirely to long. It is compromising our profit margin. You act as if
these people are sick.
Doctor it hurts. Do something.
Doctor we are here from the government to examine you and your records. Please
comply immediately. No excuse will be acceptable.
Doctor don't let him die. Please don't let him die.
Hi I'm Willie Slick from KLIE TV NEWS. Tonight's top story, doctors guilty of
crime, greed, and corruption. Details at 11:00.
Doc, it's my heart. I can't breathe.
I'm Mr. No Conscience from the firm Greedy, Gutless, and Lie. I'll help you
litigate, for a price.

Help me
The government is lying in the things they say
Who helps the secret doctor?
The media is lying in the things they say
Help me
The bureaucrats are lying in the things they say
Who helps the secret doctor?
The Clinton's are both lying in the things they say
Track Name: Touch My Soul
TOUCH MY SOUL

Music and lyrics - Tuck Neilson

BMI

I was a lonely traveler.
Confused at why I was alive
I gave up trying
Surrendered to the pain
'Til your love took me by surprise

You touched my soul
Now everything is all right
You turned the dark in to light
And opened up my eyes to see
You touched my soul
Now my broken heart's free
Oh how good love can be
When you touch my soul

I had a cold and frozen heart
I was alone I was apart
You and I are whole
We're greater than the parts
Survival's ending now life starts

I can't believe life was so bad
I can't believe how I'm so glad
I can't believe you took the time to help me heal
I can't believe you touched my soul.

DARLIN'

Music - John Thoennes. Lyrics - Tuck Neilson

BMI

I try to think of something new
To tell you how I feel for you
But there's no other way
Than the same old words
So I tell you I love you again

When life seems hard seems hard and I want to cry
There is warmth and joy that I feel inside
When you are near me
And you smile that way
And you tell me you love me again

Darlin' tell me you love me
Say it again so my heart can break loose and fly free
I will always love you
Not just for now but for all of eternity
