about

Special thanks to my parents, Ruth and Terry Ross, and to Brad Fregger, without whom this album would not have been possible... to my producer and friend, Dave Shogren, for his infinite wisdom and perfectionism... to John and Tiran for your love friendship, wisdom, and encouragement... to my friends and family on both coasts for hanging in there with me and putting up with my bizarre schedule throughout the course of this project... and to the investors for their enthusiasm, encouragement, and support. Above all, I thank the Lord for giving me this talent and keeping watch over me.

Track Name: Don't Let Me Go
Satisfy the yearning my body has for you
Come and do the things you do
Passion is a hurricane
And I’m caught up in the eye of the storm
You know how to keep me warm
Tame the rough waters
Honey, make still that sea
Come in here and take a hold of me

I want to love you (don’t you know I want to)
I’ve been keeping it deep inside
Got to wrap myself around you
Clench you like a lifeline
Don’t let me go
Just keep on holding me tight
(I need to… hold you tight)
Don’t separate me from your loving tonight

Can you feel the power struggling in my soul
Don’t you know this holding out surely takes its toll
My desire fights me, charging the gate like a steed
Only you can cure my need
This mind is driven
Baby, take me away
Carry me far from the light of day

Treat me right, hold me tight
Don’t let me go tonight
Treat me right, hold me tight

Tame the rough waters
Honey, make still that sea
I need you now, take a hold of me
Track Name: Old School of Love
Old school of love… in the old school
Old school of love… in the old school

I know what I want. I’ve made up my mind
Got all of this love to give, can I give you mine
Now that we know each other, it’s only begun
How do we show each other this time, it’s really the one

The old school of love teaches the way
To live with and for each other the rest of our days
Open your life up to me. I’ll open up mine
Say our good-byes to the ideas of love
We’ve been hiding behind

I believe in growing old together
I believe in romance
I believe in passionate kisses
In the middle of a slow, slow dance

If we give our hearts the lead, no need for careful rules
I believe that you’ll believe in the old school, too

There’s room in my life for someone, would you come into mine
Forever will come around if we just give it time
I found an old fashioned love in you
Something I’ve learned
Loving is something shared by two
It can never be earned
Track Name: Love to be Wrong
Felt you leave the bed last night. You thought I was sleeping
That far away look in your eyes tells me I’m right
Lately there’s a change in the air, you’re holding me loosely
I wish it was just all in my head, but Babe, I’m not blind

I’d love to be wrong (I’m losing you)
I’d love to be wrong (what can I do)
I’d love to be wrong, baby
Please, tell me I’m wrong

How long have you been slipping away, I thought we had something
You pretended much too well, I hadn’t a clue
The one who leaves never hurts like the one left behind
Now there’s nothing I’ve done that I can undo

I’d love to be wrong
Tell me I’m wrong
I’d love to be wrong, baby
Please, tell me I’m wrong

Was it something I said that made you see red
Don’t say it’s over
Say our love can survive, can’t we keep it alive
Don’t turn away

What battle are you fighting alone, did I hear you crying
Reaching out to feel your touch, but you turn away
You’ve built this little cocoon to shield you from something
It leaves me out in the cold with nothing to say
Track Name: I Care
How did I get this far without knowing you
Now you’re all I can think about
So much I want us to do

I can be myself with you, no need for games of the mind
I always knew there’d be someone (one like you)
Now I just can’t believe you’re mine

And time passes so slow
And now I want you to know
In a song you can sing anywhere
You know that I will be there to share
Don’t you know I care

Now I see what a difference you make
Learning what you’re about
If there’s one thing that I’m sure of
It’s that there’s nothing we can’t work out

I had a dream of you, and now it’s coming true
I know you’re here for me, and I’ll be there for you
Track Name: A While in the Sunshine
Looking for a new road, you were always moving on
Had a dream yesterday, but tomorrow you’ll be gone
Packed up all your troubles, don’t forget your pain
You’ll be right at home in the pouring rain

But I found myself a haven, and you’re welcome anytime
Won’t you come and join me for a while in the sunshine

I care so much about you. I want the world for you
You used to shine your true colors
All I can see now is your blue (what can I do)
Only One can lift you up and out of your despair
And when you reach your new ground, I’ll be there

Because I found myself a haven, and you’re welcome anytime
I wish you’d come and join me for a while in the sunshine

My actions are speaking as loud as they can
But I guess you haven’t heard
I’m trying to say, “I love you” in a way you’ll understand (I love you)
Now all I need is the words

I finally found my haven, and you’re welcome anytime
Won’t you come and join me for a while in the sunshine
I wish you’d come and join me for a while…
In the sunshine… for a while
Track Name: I've Got You
Got us something good here, we’re in it for the long haul
Wrapped around your little finger, I’m at your beckon call
As long as that’s the way it’s going to be
It’s only fair to warn you
You’ve got me right where I want me

You can’t lose me, Baby – no you can’t
That’s ‘cause I’ve got you (where I want you)
You don’t want to leave me, Honey – no you don’t
And that’s where I’ve got you

I’m in trouble with reality. You will never be without your past
But you’ve got that magic in your fingertips, it makes the fire last
When we got together all I needed was just a little shove
I piqued your curiosity and now it’s time
To show you what I’m really made of

You’re ecstasy personified, always knew how to keep the wind in my sails
The ground shakes when I feel your touch, it’s nine-point-five on the Richter Scale
You’ve been revving up my engine. I taste the sweat on my tongue
We’ll be stoking this inferno til the flames surround us
Leaving nowhere to run
Track Name: Be There Soon
I took a trip to the other side of the world
All the people looked same as before… to me
I took a walk on the other side of town
As the steeples looked down on me
I realized I wasn’t alone anymore
My friends, they opened their doors
I realized then how much you mean to me… to me

And I think I’m going to be there soon
I think I’m going to come back loving you more
I’m going to be there soon, you’ll see… you’ll see

I took a trip to the other side of the world
Threw those self-conscious blues away
I’m feeing better every day, I’m learning more every day
Your love means the world to me... to me

I took a train through the greenest land I’d ever seen
I played for the people and they smiled at me… at me
I took a walk on the other side of the world
I saw so many things that I wish you’d seen with me
(On the other side… take me to the other side)
I realized then how much you mean to me… to me
Track Name: The Wheel
I had a bad fall and then you picked me up
My throat was dry and you filled my cup
I don’t know why but I’m going to try to tell you how I feel
It seems we’ve just begun and now we’ve got to run
It’s just the turning of the wheel

And the wheel is life, the wheel is friends
Building a love that never ends
The wheel keeps spinning around with time
It keeps us growing and it keeps us moving
Right on down the line

We’ve built a friendship and it’s going to last
When we get together we always have a blast
You mean a lot to me and I hope you see my gratitude is real
I may be leaving but we won’t be grieving
It’s just the turning of the wheel
Track Name: Changes for the Better
Two people on the road to life ahead, following where it leads
Take my hand, stay with me forever
The road brings changes, changes for the better

Making you the center of my life, show me the way
We are one. We are one together
We’ve been through changes, changes for the better

Look at us now, the love and plans we’ve made
Will guide us through all kinds of weather
You and I… We’re looking straight ahead
Into these changes, changes for the better

I see a family blessed with a new child
Years from now we will remember (years from now)
How the journey of our lives has brought us through
A world of changes, wonderful changes
And yes, these changes are changes for the better
Changes for the better

Stay with me forever
Through all kinds of weather
We are one together
Track Name: Memories Gone By
Remember when I was in junior high
That was when I said I love you
Remember when you thought you loved me, too
We were going to live forever, make our dreams come true

Remember when we flew to Germany
I wrote you love letters and I kissed you
Love felt so new back in ‘82
Now when I see your photograph I miss you

Oh, those memories
Love to remember you and me
Oh, those memories gone by… You and I

Remember the day when we ran away
How it burned when we learned we couldn’t hide
Remember the year when we shed a tear
We just couldn’t believe our childhood could die

Oh, those memories
It hurts to remember about you and me (me and you)
Oh, those memories gone by… You and I

I remember the joy when I loved the boy
Who would grow up to be a man I never knew
Recall the pain, my tears they fell like rain
How it burned when I learned it wasn’t you

Oh, those memories
I still remember you and me (memories)
Oh, those memories gone by… You and I
