Track Name: If I Love You
IF I LOVE YOU
Music & lyrics
©1989 by Robert Davidson


Chorus IF I LOVE YOU baby
If you were mine
Love will last for us
For you and I

Verse What do you do to me
When you open my heart emotionally
But all I hear you say
Is you wanted this love in a physical way

Chorus IF I LOVE YOU baby
And you were mine
Love will last for us
For you and I

Verse Can I be wrong or right
When I think of your love, every night
I'm not through, or satisfied
'til we share in that love, feeling inside...

Chorus IF I LOVE YOU baby
If you were mine (in a loving situation)
Love will last for us
For you and I (make it right this time)

Verse I'm sure that this will be
Now we're looking at love seriously
And I say that there's no doubt
That something 'bout us is gonna work out.
Track Name: I Give My Love
Music & Lyrics ©1990, 2013 by Robert Davidson

I GIVE MY LOVE

©1990 by Robert Davidson

I only live for love that you give
And I only want that love with you
I feel it inside, I’m filled with desire
and I want to keep this love brand new

Your love and mine is a love genuine
It’s the real thing.

You mean more to me
You’re my everything
And to keep this love alive
Every night and day

And I tell you what I do

I Give My Love
In all that I do
I Give My Love
All up to you
I Give My Love
Yes, girl
Every night, every day
I give you everything

Each time we meet
My heart skips a beat
Yes I want this love forever more

How can I hide
All the love I have inside
Ready for your love

And I say it once again

I Give My Love
In all that I do
I Give My Love
All up to you
I Give My Love
Yes, girl
Every night, every day
I give you everything

When I want your love a little bit more
Then I know we can on and on
Cos we found ecstasy
It’s everlasting baby
Love eternally
Believe me when I say, baby...

I Give My Love
In all that I do
I Give My Love
All up to you
I Give My Love
Yes, girl
Every night, every day
I give you everything
Track Name: All For Love
All For Love
© 1982 BY ROBERT DAVIDSON

I need
The kinda love that lasts forever
To be
Always by your side and never
Leaving
I want you here with me forever more.

Can't be
a parting of the ways has started
It Can't be
You turn the page I'm broken hearted
I Can't see
What is pulling you away from me.

All For Love, I cry
And I cannot believe it's
Love, you had inside
Still I go on believing
I can make you love me if I try
But you left me here alone on the outside.

All day
I remember how you said it
Always
I am trying to forget it
But no way
I won't hold on to a ghost of you.

All For Love, I cry
And I cannot believe it's
Love, you had inside
Still I go on believing
I can make you love me if I try
But you left me here alone on the outside.

And now you're telling me
You never were quite right for me
Now everything appears in another light
You move away for love
Following the sway of love
You change your place to fill a new desire.

All gone
Everything that we were saving
Gone wrong
Everything is re-arranging
Come on
How is it you go on fooling me.
Now it's All For Love ...

All For Love, I cry
And I cannot believe it's
Love, you had inside
Still I go on believing
I can make you love me if I try
Yet you left me here alone on the outside.

All For Love...
Track Name: Nothing At All
Nothing At All
Music & Lyrics ©1981, 2013 by Robert Davidson

When you're near I say nothing at all
Words can never say what's in my heart.
Stay with me and say nothing at all
We/have it all tonight, the world is ours.

Knights in shining armor lose their glow
Fantasies don't lure me anymore.
I just want you near
I just want you here
I just want you near me from now on.

We don't need to move from here at all
We have all we need right where we are.

Knights in shining armor lose their glow
Fantasies don't lure me anymore.
I just want you near . -~
I just want you here
I just want you near me from now on.
Track Name: I Know It
I KNOW IT
Music & Lyrics ©1986, 2013 by Robert Davidson

I know it
I do know how it’s gonna be
Yes, I know it
I know it will be you and me

In morning, I wake up from my sleep, yes I do
I know that
the day won't be complete
Without you

I see your smile
I want so much
Your love would be a treat
You touch my heart
I close my eyes
What do I feel when our lips meet?

I know it
I do know how it’s gonna be
Yes, I know it
I know it will be you and me

Completely, I’m offering to you, understand
I know that, you‘ll be giving too, yes you can

I see your smile
I want so much
Your love would be a treat
You touch my heart
I close my eyes
What do I feel when our lips meet?

I know it
I do know how it’s gonna be
Yes, I know it
I know it will be you and me

I know it
I do know how it’s gonna be
Yes, I know it
I know it will be you and me


I could wait here patiently for what I know is right
When you come around me I won’t even be surprised

Because know it
Yes I know it
Somehow I know it
Yes I know it

All my life I waited just for you to come along
You and me together are not ever going wrong

Because know it
Yes I know it
Somehow I know it
Yes I know it

Track Name: You Are All That to Me
YOU ARE ALL THAT TO ME
Music & lyrics ©1994, 2013 by Robert Davidson

UNDER STAR LIT SKIES
THE MAGIC MOONLIGHT SHINES
BUT THIS IS JUST THE WORLD I SEE
YOU ARE ALL THAT TO ME.

THE SIMPLE MELODY OF SPRING
THE SONGS OF LOVE THE SUMMER BRINGS
THE AUTUMN LEAVES ITS BREEZE AND SINGS
YOU ARE ALL THAT TO ME.

BEYOND THE SHOOTING STARS
AND JUPITER AND MARS
WITH YOU THERE ARE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.
BUT IN ALL THE THINGS AROUND
AND ALL THE UPS AND DOWNS
YOU’RE THE CLOSEST THING TO HEAVEN I HAVE BEEN AROUND.

LIKE THE MORNING DEW ACROSS THE LAWN
THAT SPARKLES AT THE BREAK OF DAWN
THE SUNRISE WARMS IT TILL IT’S GONE
YOU ARE ALL THAT TO ME.

BEYOND THE SHOOTING STARS
AND JUPITER AND MARS
WITH YOU THERE ARE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.
BUT IN ALL THE THINGS AROUND
AND ALL THE UPS AND DOWNS
YOU’RE THE CLOSEST THING TO HEAVEN I HAVE BEEN AROUND.

LIKE THE SAND UP TO THE SEA
THE SHADE BENEATH THE TREE
THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD I SEE
YOU ARE ALL THAT TO ME.

LIKE RAINBOWS OVER WATERFALLS
OR SNOWFLAKES WHEN THE WINTER CALLS
AND WHEN I THINK I’VE SEEN IT ALL
YOU ARE ALL THAT TO ME.

BEYOND THE SHOOTING STARS
AND JUPITER AND MARS
WITH YOU THERE ARE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.
BUT IN ALL THE THINGS AROUND
AND ALL THE UPS AND DOWNS
YOU’RE THE CLOSEST THING TO HEAVEN I HAVE BEEN AROUND.

LIKE THE MORNING DEW ACROSS THE LAWN
THAT SPARKLES AT THE BREAK OF DAWN
THE SUNRISE WARMS IT TILL IT’S GONE
YOU ARE ALL THAT TO ME.
Track Name: When We Fall Out of Love
When We Fall Out of Love

© 1982 BY ROBERT DAVIDSON

In time, we see
Some choices that we have made
Some moves that each of us played
Didn't turn out right.

Our lives, so short
To spend the day without you
To realize the best is through
Now there is only emptiness inside
And the loneliness I cannot hide
I recognize the feel of
Living life alone
Oh, When We Fall Out of Love.

We used, to say
For us it would never end
Continuing to pretend
It wouldn't fade away.
Then we tried, to save
The moment that couldn't last
Togetherness in the past

But now it's time for us to move along
No longer try to right the wrong
I recognize the feel of
Living life alone
Oh, When We Fall Out of Love.

Say it's just the differences between us
Say it's a phase we're going through
Soon we will return to what we once were
But never fall back in to what we knew.

Each day, afraid
To begin again on my own
And finally let you go
Cos there's a silence in between us now
And its keeping us together somehow
But I recognize the feel of
Living life alone
Oh, When We Fall Out of Love ...
Track Name: Genuine
Genuine
Music & Lyrics ©1981, 2013 by Robert Davidson

Let It Shine Through You
Give Your Heart Up To
The Power of a Genuine
Love Coming to You.

Let It Shine and Sing
Share Your Love, Sweet Thing
All the Time in Genuine
Lov-ve

What we have, is Genuine
(Let it shine all night, baby, oh yeah)
What we have, is yours and mine
(And we'll share it forever)

The stormy season is through,
A clearing reveals the truth, we know that ...

What we have, (is Genuine)
Oh, everytime, Baby.

Let It Shine Through You
Give Your Heart Up To
The Power of a Genuine
Love Coming to You.

Let It Shine and Sing
Share Your Love, Sweet Thing
All the Time in Genuine
Lov-ve

Give and get, (I can depend on you)
And I'll stay with you forev-ver
Don't forget, (my love returns to you)
'Cos we made it through bad weather.

The stormy season is through,
A clearing reveals the truth, we know that ...
What we have, (is Genuine)
Oh, everytime, Baby.
Let It Shine Through You
Give Your Heart Up To
The Power of a Genuine
Love Coming to You.

Let It Shine and Sing
Share Your Love, Sweet Thing
The Power of a Genuine Love, it's amazing ...

Track Name: Where Are You Now?
Where Are You Now?
Music & Lyrics ©1982 by Robert Davidson

You suddenly caught my eye
You whispered and passed me by,
Got me all shook up
I think something's starting up ... but

I'm looking around for you
Who are you turning to
Can I call you up
Can you make some time for us ... and

Where Are You Now~ tell me baby
Where Are You Now~ tell me honey
Where Are You Now~ tell me baby
Can't you hear me call (I'm calling)
Take my heart and make it better ...

Now, pretending it never was
You can't turn your back on love
Not until its through
It will lead me straight to you ... and
I'll catch you eventually
Remember the time that we
Could have had so much
I won't let it pass untouched ... and ...

Where Are You Now~ tell me baby
Where Are You Now~ tell me honey
Where Are You Now~ tell me baby
Can't you hear me call (I'm calling)
Take my heart and make it better ...
