Track Name: Don't Steal My Heart Away
"Don’t Steal My Heart Away"

It started out like nothing new, it’s still the same old story
I saw her dancing at the show, she looked my way and suddenly

I got the feeling, hits me every time
One more one night stand, where do I draw the line?

(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So don’t misuse it) Don’t steal my heart away

She said she’s like to know me more, but I know all about her
She’ll have her way til she gets bored, I’m through with this encounter

No more guessing and hide your disguise
You’ll be on to the next one before it’s goodbye

(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So don’t misuse it) Don’t steal my heart away

Tell me - tell me what your doing, I can’t stop from losing
It’s a shame they call it love
So i’m through, being your affection, if you just want attention
And i’m not giving it up

No more guessing and hide your disguise
You’ll be on to the next one before it’s goodbye

(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So take it easy) Don’t steal my heart away
Track Name: Why You Gotta Lie
Why You Gotta Lie

Girl I gotta know right now
Cause the stories don’t add up somehow
Ya I’ve heard you’ve been seen with him
There’s no way that you can win now

It’s the best thing that I can do
To try and make you tell the truth
Cause there’s no use in keeping up
Our love if it’s breaking up now

It’s not what you say or what you do
That makes me feel so unamused

Girl I don’t know why, why you gotta lie?
There’s no reply, your seen with other guys
It’s no surprise, so why you gotta lie?

The news is all over town (Ya she’s a cheater!)
And if the truth it’s pulling me down (She’s gonna leave ya!)
So there’s no use in keeping up
Our Love if it’s breaking up now

It’s not what you say or what you do
That makes me feel so unamused

Girl I don’t know why, why you gotta lie?
There’s no reply, your seen with other guys
It’s no surprise, so why you gotta lie?
