Track Name: First Taste
Music & Lyrics ©1979, 2013 by Robert Davidson

How can you do what you're doing?
You know what you do to me
You get me high with your loving
You're all I desire, everyday.

Whenever I see you
Wherever you go
I know that I need you
I need you to know

It was the First Taste of a love that thrilled me
The first time that I noticed you
The First Taste of a love that thrilled me
Has got me wanting more of you

How can you do what you're doing?
You know what you do to me
You get me high with your loving
You're all I desire, everyday.

My temperature's rising
I've got to have more
And I am still smiling
My appetite's strong, from that

First Taste of a love that thrilled me
The first time that I noticed you
The First Taste of a love that thrilled me
Has got me wanting more of you

My love is here
For the taking
So take it baby
Our time is near
We can make it
Let's make it baby

I want you
Each / day and night
Do you ever think of me
at all?

We could have
Everything
If you'd / only answer
when I call you

Cos I've / had you in my heart for way too long
This / feeling will not let me be
And/ making up your mind's taking
too much time, now
find a way to be with me
I mean it baby


My love is here
For the taking
So take it baby
Our time is near
We can make it
Let's make it baby

When I get
Up / close to you
Just a / taste can never
be enough
That's when I want
All of you
Gotta / find out what
you are made of

My love is here
For the taking
So take it baby
Our time is near
We can make it
Let's make it baby
Track Name: First Real Lover
FIRST REAL LOVER
Music & lyrics
©1989, 2013 by Robert Davidson


Verse Take the key and unlock the door
My heart is yours again
Let's share the love that we had before
And never let it end.

My life is about you girl
No other will rock my world
So baby don't leave me by myself
I just want you and nobody else...

Chorus You were my FIRST REAL LOVER
was out of my mind that time,
but now we're gonna stay, baby
FIRST REAL LOVER
it must be from up above,
a real love.

Verse Lost our love in an argument
When silly things were said
If love is true, then we'll get through
Love always finds a way.

My life is about you girl
No other will rock my world
So baby don't leave me by myself
I just want you and nobody else...

Chorus You were my FIRST REAL LOVER
was out of my mind that time,
but now we're gonna stay, baby
FIRST REAL LOVER
it must be from up above,
a real love.

Track Name: Everlasting
Everlasting
© 1982, 2013 BY ROBERT DAVIDSON

Now you don't have to tell me
Or try to find a reason
No keeping it a secret
You'll never hide the feeling.

Though you may try to carryon
It's just two people passing
Tomorrow you will see it all
This moment will be lasting.

It's finalized, it's
Everlasting
I realize, love's
Gonna stay
It's finalized, it's
Everlasting
It's no surprise
Love's gonna stay.

When finally you reach me
You treat me warm and tender
Why did it take so very long
To struggle to surrender

And I'll be here tomorrow too
But you say you'll be leaving
And I'll be thinking just of you
Remembering our meeting.

It's finalized, it's
Everlasting
I realize, love's
Gonna stay
It's finalized, it's
Everlasting
It's no surprise
Love's gonna stay.

Track Name: I Just Want to Have Your Love
I JUST WANNA HAVE YOUR LOVE

©1984, 2013 by Robert Davidson

It's love, brand new
It's what you do
There's a feeling you
Give to me
When you are near
It's all so clear
That I want what your
Loving brings.

There are other girls
Diamond rings and pearls
Are the price their men have to pay

They want fancy clothes
I'm not one of those
But there's something I want today

Oh, I Just Want to Have Your Love
Just for the moment make you part of my world
Oh, I Just Want to Have Your Love
Just for an hour make you all my own

Now let me guess
Your heart says 'yes'
But in your mind
You can't decide.

So hold me close
And you will know
There are feelings you
Cannot deny.

So now play along
Nothing will go wrong
I'll make sure it will
Turn out right
Now I wait for you
Tell me what to do
Don’t you leave
Me here
Another night

Oh, I Just Want to Have Your Love
Just for the moment make you part of my world
Oh, I Just Want to Have Your Love
Just for an hour make you all my own

It's getting stronger
Can It wait no longer
Baby come to me.
You know I'm waiting
Anticipating
Baby can’t you see.

Oh, I Just Want to Have Your Love
Just for the moment make you part of my world
Oh, I Just Want to Have Your Love
Just for an hour make you all my own

Living Proof

Music & Lyrics ©1980, 2013 by Robert Davidson

A Living proof is the heaven in your eyes.
You tell the truth to me, angels never lie.

I'm telling all the world we're here together,
Now that we've found love here forever,
Now I realize the good I never had.
Oh you make me feel good.

I'm living love every day I spend with you.
We're making history, make sweet loving too.

I'm telling all the world we're here together,
Now that we've found love here forever,
Now I realize the good I never had.
Oh you make me feel good.
Track Name: Where Is Love
WHERE IS LOVE WHEN YOU NEED IT
©1984, 2013 by Robert Davidson

WHERE IS LOVE, WHERE WHEN YOU NEED IT?
WHERE IS LOVE? YEAH
WHERE IS LOVE, WHERE WHERE YOU NEED IT?
WHERE IS LOVE? WHERE?


You can look a thousand days
Real loves's not there.
You can try a thousand ways
Not even a taste. Because

Nothing left is true
Same old substitute
Seems to keep me warm at night
Where is real delight? Now I say

WHERE IS LOVE, WHERE WHEN YOU NEED IT?
WHERE IS LOVE? YEAH
WHERE IS LOVE, WHERE WHERE YOU NEED IT?
WHERE IS LOVE? WHERE?

You can find enough of them
Living for fast times.
But to find a gentleman
I can make all mine. Now that

Nothing left is true
Same old substitute
Seems to keep me warm at night
Where 'is real delight? Now I say

WHERE IS LOVE, WHERE WHEN YOU NEED IT?
WHERE IS LOVE? YEAH
WHERE IS LOVE, WHERE WHERE YOU NEED IT?
WHERE IS LOVE? WHERE?
Track Name: The Facts of Love
THE FACTS OF LOVE
@ 1984 by Robert Davidson

Setting sun, almost gone
The approach of evening leaves us
All alone.

And our love is, so much like this
That it seems each day further
apart we drift.

What we had before cannot be saved, baby
Now we have to go our separate ways
Nature seems to have decisions made
Just seems like we haven't loved enough
But in our lives we can't deny the Facts of Love.

Time is gone, our lives move on
And we have to find the strength to
carry on.
And all love is, so delicate
You can find it's broken and it
can't be fixed.

What we had before cannot be saved baby
Now we have to go our separate ways
Nature seems to have decisions made
Just seems like we haven't loved enough
But in our lives we can't deny the Facts of Love.

In my dreams, I still call you
But in our lives, I know we're through
In my heart, I feel I need you
But every day, I know the truth.. Know the truth.

What we had before cannot be saved, baby
Now we have to go our separate ways
Nature seems to have decisions made
Just seems like we haven't loved enough
But in our lives we can't deny the Facts of Love.
