Eric Carmen Desperate Fools

I’ve been up too high

I’ve been down too low

I’ve been searchin’ for somethin’

With nowhere to go

Thought I’d make it alone

But I’m so far from home

In a town full of desperate fools

Oh, the sun beats down

On the L.A. scene

But you can’t feel the cold

When the grass looks so green

And the games that I’ve played

Were not wort what I paid

In a town full of desperate fools

I’ve been takin’ my life

One day at a time

Tryin’ to piece it all together

But I know in my mind

That I’m startin’ to be

What they want me to be

And I wonder sometimes

What’s becoming of me

I’ve been takin’ my life

One day at a time

Tryin’ to piece it all together

But I know in my mind

That I’m startin’ to be

What they want me to be

And I wonder sometimes

What’s becoming of me

‘Cause I’ve been up too high

I’ve been down too low

I’ve been searchin’ for somethin’

With nowhere to go

And I suppose it’s been fun

But I guess I’m just one

In a town full of desperate fools

A town full of desperate fools

Eric Carmen On Broadway

They say the neon lights are bright

On Broadway

They say there’s always magic in the air

But when you’re walkin’ down that street

And you ain’t got enough to eat

The glitter rubs right off and you’re nowhere

They say the chicks are somethin’ else

On Broadway

But lookin’ at them just gives me the blues

‘Cause how ya gonna make some time

When all you got is one thin dime

And one thin dime won’t even shine your shoes

They say that I won’t last too long

On Broadway

I’ll catch a Greyhound bus for home they all say

But they’re dead wrong, I know they are

‘Cause I can play this here guitar

And I won’t quit till I’m a star

On Broadway

But they’re dead wrong, I know they are

‘Cause I can play this here guitar

And I won’t quit till I’m a star

On Broadway

On Broadway

I’m gonna make it, yeah

On Broadway

I’ll be a big, big man

On Broadway

I’ll have my name in lights

On Broadway

Everybody gonna know me

On Broadway

All up and down Broadway

On Broadway

Eric Carmen Living Without Your Love

Looks like you win

It’s just like you called it from the start

I let you in

Now I can’t get you out of my heart

Here I am

I’m dreamin’ about you night and day

Wanting you

Needing you

Hopin’ you stay

All of my life

I thought I knew the taste of sweet

In my eye

My life was so complete

There you were

That same smile you wear tonight

Suddenly

This heart and me

Can’t understand how

I’ve been living without your love

Never know how I did it so long

Living without your love

All I know is I just can’t go on

Living without your love

Darlin’ I’ve had more than enough

Living without your love

Till I found you

I never knew love could feel like this

Now that I do

I wanna make up for what I missed

Here we are

What I thought was just a dream

It’s comin’ true

Because of you

I know what love means

And I’ve been living without your love

Never know how I made it so long

Living without your love

All I know is I just can’t go on

Living without your love

Darlin’ I’ve had more than enough

Of living without your love

All the world couldn’t see

But somehow you knew

Everything I ever needed

I’d find it with you

(I’ve been) I’ve been living without your love

Never know how I made it so long

Living without your love

All I know is I just can’t go on

Living without your love

Darlin’ I’ve had more than enough

Of living without your love

Eric Carmen I Wanna Hear It From Your Lips

I hear it from my friends

I hear it on the street

I hear it in the air here and there

everywhere and from everyone I meet

And everytime I hear you love me

oh

my heart skips.

But I wanna hear it from your lips

You never told me

you never told me.

I wanna hear it from your lips

you never told me.

I hear it in my car

I hear it on the phone

I hear it in a crowd nice and loud

But lately now I hear it when I’m all alone.

And everytime I hear you love me

oh

my heart skips.

But I wanna hear it from your lips

Now everybody’s been told and the whole world knows

Just how good our love is gonna be.

But oh

wee

oh

wee

baby

baby

you never told me

you never told me.

I see it in your eyes

I feel it in your touch

You even found a way you can say all you need

but you never say too much.

And if you’d only say you’d love me

oh

my heart would flip.

And I wanna hear it from your lips

you never told me

you never told me.

I wanna hear it from your lips

you never told me

you never told me.

I wanna hear it from your lips

you never told me

you never told me…

Eric Carmen Caroline, No

Where did your long hair go

Where is the girl I used to know

How could you lose that happy glow

Oh, Caroline no

Who took that look away

I remember how you used to say

You’d never change, but that’s not true

Oh, Caroline you

Break my heart

I want to go and cry

It’s so sad to watch a sweet thing die

Oh, Caroline why

Could I ever find in you again

Things that made me love you so much then

Could we ever bring ’em back once they have gone

Oh, Caroline no

Eric Carmen Foolin’ Myself

Seems so crazy, but I guess it’s true

Girl, you’ve really got a hold on me

Well I’ve been hurt before

So now I must be sure

Are you feelin’ it too

Maybe this time it’s true

Or am I foolin’ myself

Once again

I’ve got to know for sure

That I’m not foolin’ myself

Once again

‘Cause I couldn’t stand the pain

Findin’ out it really wasn’t true

I was foolin’ myself

Into lovin’ you

If you’re still in love with someone else

Girl, you know it’s gonna break my heart

But I just can’t let go

So now I’ve got to know

Is it love that you feel

Maybe this time it’s real

Or am I foolin’ myself

Once again

I’ve got to know for sure

That I’m not foolin’ myself

Once again

‘Cause I couldn’t stand the pain

Findin’ out it really wasn’t true

I was foolin’ myself

Into lovin’ you

Am I foolin’ myself

Once again

I’ve got to know for sure

That I’m not foolin’ myself

Once again

‘Cause I couldn’t stand the pain

Findin’ out it really wasn’t true

I was foolin’ myself

Into lovin’ you

Oh, I’ve got to know for sure

That I’m not foolin’ myself

Once again

Oh, I’ve got to know for sure

That I’m not foolin’ myself

Once again

Eric Carmen American As Apple Pie

On this night

On any hot, summer night

Every girl

Every red-blooded boy

Is cryin’ out

With one great voice

They wanna jump

They wanna turn up the noise

And that’s the sound

That’s the thunderin’ sound

Of clappin’ hands

And of stompin’ their feet

Coast to coast

Like a national heart

Watch them go

Go wild in the street

Every kid in the U.S.A.

Is comin’ out to play

It’s American as apple pie

Livin’ hard, riding high

Feelin’ every minute like the 4th of July

Go for broke

Do or die

American as apple pie

I gotta girl

I got one fine girl

She’s got hair

Like Kansas wheat

She can move

Like a New York street

And she can kiss

She can kiss so sweet

On this night

On this glorious night

We got plans

We got red, hot schemes

Of bustin’ out

Before we break at the seams

We’ll cut a piece

Of the American dream

Every kid in the U.S.A.

Is comin’ out to play

It’s American as apple pie

Livin’ hard, riding high

Feelin’ every minute like the 4th of July

Go for broke

Do or die

American as apple pie

It’s American as apple pie

Livin’ hard, riding high

Feelin’ every minute like the 4th of July

Go for broke

Do or die

American

It’s American

It’s American as apple pie

American as apple pie

Livin’ hard, riding high

Livin’ every minute like the 4th of July

Eric Carmen Come Back To My Love

I hear you crying

Through a long distance line

Now you’re finally saying

It was good to be mine

But you couldn’t throw it

‘Cause you didn’t know it

And now

You want to come back

Come back to my love

You want to come back

Come back to my love

Bring the guitar in

When you know it’s all you’ve got

You finally need me

Always did from the start

But you couldn’t show it

‘Cause you didn’t know it

And now

You want to come back

Come back to my love

You want to come back

Come back to my love

So I say to you

I can’t live without it

But I know it’s true

And I can’t have love in my life

Without you

So girl

Why don’t you come back

Come back to my love

Why don’t you come back

Come back to my love

Oh girl

Why don’t you come back

Come back to my love

You got to come back

Come back to my love

You got to come back

Come back to my love

Eric Carmen Maybe My Baby

Maybe my baby’s got a new man

Who can take her where she wants to go

(I’m thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new lover

And I’m not supposed to know

I call her on the telephone

But she’s never where she’s supposed to be

Lately when we’re all alone

Well it seems she don’t want any part of me

Don’t you know I’m gonna lose my mind

If there’s someone else after all this time

(I’m thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new man

Who can take her where she wants to go

(I’m thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new lover

And I’m not supposed to know

(Well somethin’ tells me)

Maybe my baby’s got a new guy

And he’s really puttin’ on a show

(I’m thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new lover

And I’m not supposed to know

I can’t believe it’s come to this

But my heart keeps tellin’ me there’s somethin’ wrong

I feel the difference in her kiss

I wanna know what I’ll do when she’s really gone

Well, don’t you know I’m gonna lose my mind

If there’s someone else after all this time

(I keep thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new man

Who can take her where she wants to go

Maybe my baby’s got a new lover

And I’m not supposed to know

(Well somethin’ tells me)

Maybe my baby’s got a new guy

And he’s really puttin’ on a show

(I’m thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new lover

And I’m not supposed to know

I can’t seem to pin her down

Friends tell me all I’m getting is the runaround

I’m sitting home and it’s Saturday night

Is she moving in with someone else tonight

Maybe my baby’s got a new man

Who can take her where she wants to go

(I’m thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new lover

And I’m not supposed to know

(Well somethin’ tells me)

Maybe my baby’s got a new guy

And he’s really puttin’ on a show

(I’m thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new lover

And I’m not supposed to know

Yes, and I’m not supposed to know

And I’m not supposed to know

Maybe my baby’s got a new man

Who can take her where she wants to go

(I’m thinking)

Maybe my baby’s got a new lover

And I’m not supposed to know

Eric Carmen Haven’t We Come A Long Way

Baby, life has come between a lot of happy people

But the world has never had a broken heart

So don’t you let it get you too discouraged

Sometimes bein’ in love takes a lot of courage

Haven’t we come a long way, baby

To let this foolish world tear us both apart

Oh darlin’, after all we’ve been through, baby

I said, if you left me now

You know it’s got to break my heart

Baby, everybody tells me the things I ought to be

And all the while I’m just tryin’ to make ends meet

Don’t you let it bring you down now, honey

‘Cause the love that we got doesn’t cost any money

Haven’t we come a long way, baby

To let this foolish world tear us both apart

Oh darlin’, after all we’ve been through, baby

I said if you left me now

You know it’s got to break my heart

I said love is the answer and love is in me

Haven’t we come a long way, baby

To let this foolish world, tear us both apart

Oh darlin’, after all we’ve been through, baby

Listen, if you left me now

You know it’s got to break my heart

Haven’t we come a long way, baby

Haven’t we come a long way, baby

Listen when I tell you now

Haven’t we come a long way, baby
