Track Name: Don't Worry
Don’t Worry
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

Everybody’s talking about it
They say you’re the talk of the town
A few stolen moments of glory
Before it comes tumbling down
Have you looked in your mirror lately
Have you studied yourself hard and long
I can tell from your brand new reflection
I can tell, that the old one has gone

Chorus:
Don’t you worry ‘bout me baby
I’m okay, I’m doing fine
Don’t you think ‘bout me baby
It’s not your fault, I was so blind

I guess I should offer best wishes
For the future and all that it brings
I hope that life deals out good fortune
And good luck and all of those things
But luck is such a serious contender
When you fight for your life in the ring
Your eyes can’t conceal the pretender
Who knows the way things should have been

Chorus:
Don’t you worry ‘bout me baby
I’m okay, I’m doing fine
Don’t you think ‘bout me baby
It’s not your fault, I was so blind

And everything I thought about
Through all the heartbreak and the doubt
And all the dreams I ever had
That in the end turned out so bad
And now I start my life anew
Just trying to get over you
I need someone who will be true
Someone to hold on……

Chorus:
Don’t you worry ‘bout me baby
I’m okay, I’m doing fine
Don’t you think ‘bout me baby
It’s not your fault, I was so blind
Track Name: Superstition Highway
2. Superstition Highway
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

I remember when I first met you
We sat in a Wimpy bar for hours
Over two cups of coffee
And you told me your life story
I guess we could have been there for days
But I heard a shortened version
And it hit me suddenly
How dull my life had been

We were only twenty-one
But you’d been on your own since leaving school
Drifting from one place to another
While I still lived at home
You’d had many lovers
And you told me with great fervour
Details of your endeavours
And I could not recall one

Chorus:
I’m on Superstition Highway
We can talk all night about the way things used to be
Before Superstition Highway
Took you away from me

A diamond ring or broken heart or two
Could never break your spirit
In your own firm held belief
That there was someone out there for you
In all the years I’ve known you
I can’t remember seeing you cry
You shrug off each rejection
Whilst eyeing the next man passing by

Chorus:
I’m on Superstition Highway
We can talk all night about the way things used to be
Before Superstition Highway
Took you away from me

I haven’t seen you now in years
Since you started out on your last adventure
Across the lake that would divide us
For six months…..and you’re still here
You’re married now, with a house and dog
In Phoenix, Arizona
I’m on Superstition Highway
That leads me to your door

Chorus:
I’m on Superstition Highway
We can talk all night about the way things used to be
Before Superstition Highway
Took you away from me

We’ve been here now for three days
We had so much to catch up on
The conversation was easy
And we talked about the old days
We went shooting in the desert
Now I’m leaving for Nevada
My stay is slowly ending
But I’ll be coming back to…

Chorus:
I’m on Superstition Highway
We can talk all night about the way things used to be
Before Superstition Highway
Took you away from me
Track Name: Main Man Gone
3. Main Man Gone
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

It’s been three years for me
Seems it’s only just begun
When your whole life comes crashing in
And there’s no-where left to run
You know life has changed for you
And will never be the same
How could it with the Main Man gone
And you’re left to bear the pain

Chorus:
I can’t make the hurt go away
Time will heal that’s what they say
As long as memories don’t fade
Cause I don’t want them to
I can’t make the hurt go away
Take your time day by day
And if you need me you know where I am
That’s all I can give to you

Right now you’re gonna be shook up
And you’re angry and confused
I’d like to say things will get easier soon
All that is up to you
It’s easy to see that it’s breaking your heart
You really look as if you’ve been torn apart
I think it’s really true to say
You feel it as I do

Chorus:
I can’t make the hurt go away
Time will heal that’s what they say
As long as memories don’t fade
Cause I don’t want them to
I can’t make the hurt go away
Take your time day by day
And if you need me you know where I am
That’s all I can give to you
To you
To you
To you
Track Name: Love On The Run
4. Love on the Run
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

Coming home to you tonight
I saw a couple on the street
Each holding the other one tight
Their future looked so sweet
It took me back a year or two
To the time when I had first met you
And it made me realise
These days we hardly find the time

Chorus:
We got love on the run
Like ships that pass in the dead of night
Love on the run
We gotta’ find a way to get the balance right

When you’re in love you’re just bowled over
You can’t believe how it can be
It enters into each every moment
Each thought, each word, each memory
And though the feeling is still as strong
You know the rest of life goes on
We can’t stop them wheels from turning
Just find a way to jump off and on

Chorus:
We got love on the run
Like ships that pass in the dead of night
Love on the run
We gotta’ find a way to get the balance right

To play the music we used to dance to
To watch the movies we used to cry to
To make love slowly the way we used to
We got love on the run

Chorus:
We got love on the run
Like ships that pass in the dead of night
Love on the run
We gotta’ find a way to get the balance right

We got love on the run
Like ships that pass in the dead of night
Love on the run
We gotta find a way to get the balance right
Love on the run
Like ships that pass in the dead of night
Love on the run
We gotta find a way to get the balance right
Love on the run
Love on the run
Love on the run
Track Name: Only In The Movies
5. Only in the Movies
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

There’s a real side to love
We never allow ourselves to see
So conditioned into thinking
The way it ought to be
Champagne and roses
Little hearts for valentine
Violins and moonlight
Desperate lovers, you are mine

Chorus:
When it finally falls upon you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, just like me
Wake up from the daydream and you will see
That it was only in the movies, only in the movies

Expectations run too high
Only to be filled with disappointment
The weak become strong, oh what a lie
Manufactured piece of sentiment
A slice of an old fantasy
That doesn’t apply to you and me
Made that mistake a long time ago
Now I know what’s real or make believe

Chorus:
When it finally falls upon you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, just like me
Wake up from the daydream and you will see
That it was only in the movies, only in the movies

Chorus:
When it finally falls upon you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, just like me
Wake up from the daydream and you will see
That it was only in the movies, only in the movies
It was only in the movies
It was only in the movies
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Only in the movies
Only in the movies
Only
Only in the movies
Only in the movies
Only
Silver screen come to me
Silver screen come to me
Track Name: What's Gonna Happen?
6. What’s gonna happen
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

You’re making plans, that don’t include me
I’m on the outside looking in
I can’t compete with the deals you’re making
It costs you nothing I’m the one who’s paying

Chorus
What’s gonna’ happen to us
Your hopes and dreams could tear us apart
What’s gonna’ happen to us
You’re thinking bout money but not my heart

I can’t complain about the life you’re making
I know you’ve gotta’ do things you gotta’ do
And sometimes sacrifices will have to be made
I look after me and you look after you

Chorus
What’s gonna’ happen to us
Your hopes and dreams could tear us apart
What’s gonna’ happen to us
You’re thinking bout money but not my heart

I know love goes beyond the material
We can’t buy the kind of love we’ve known
Oh honey, let’s don’t take this love for granted
One day it might me gone, when we get home

Chorus
What’s gonna’ happen to us
Your hopes and dreams could tear us apart
What’s gonna’ happen to us
You’re thinking bout money but not my heart

Chorus
What’s gonna’ happen to us
Your hopes and dreams could tear us apart
What’s gonna’ happen to us
You’re thinking bout money but not my heart

What’s gonna’ happen
Not my heart
What’s gonna’ happen
Not my heart (to us)
What’s gonna’ happen
Not my heart (to us)
What’s gonna’ happen
Not my heart (to us)
Track Name: Lies
7. Lies
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

So you told me your story
And what a tale you spun
‘Bout where you’ve been the last few days
And ‘bout all the crazy things you’ve done
Well you must think that I’m a fool
If I’m gonna believe you again
Cause I know where you’ve really been
And my heart is feeling the strain

Chorus:
Lies in the morning
Lies in bed at night
Don’t give me the chance to tell you where to go
Cause baby, baby, I just might

Now you can’t fool me anymore
Cause I’m on to your little game
I wish I had the revenge desire
To go out and do the same
Well I know you’ve been cheating on me
When you say that you’ve been working late
Now this girl’s been lonely too long
It’s time you learnt your fate

Chorus:
Lies in the morning
Lies in bed at night
Don’t give me the chance to tell you where to go
Cause baby, baby, I just might

You can’t fool me anymore
Cause I’m on to your little game
I wish I had the revenge desire
To go out and do the same

Chorus:
Lies in the morning
Lies in bed at night
Don’t give me the chance to tell you where to go
Cause baby, baby, I just might

Baby I just might
Baby I just might
Baby I just
Track Name: This Is Me
8. This is me
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

I know her smile is all that you see
It’s easy to think that that’s all she can be
Her love of life makes it hard to believe
That in her heart, she feels the same loss and grief
So many people envy her strength
Thinking that she is the ultimate friend
She has to listen but do you ever hear
Do you see the person or just the veneer

Chorus:
This is me, do I look the same
This is me, can you feel my pain
This is me, can I make you see
The other person inside of me

I watch her bringing her joy to your world
The party starts when she enters the room
I’ve also seen her when she crumbles and falls
Is anyone out there listening to her call

Chorus:
This is me, do I look the same
This is me, can you feel my pain
This is me, can I make you see
The other person inside of me

All it takes is a little sensitivity
Thinking of her instead of just what she can do for me
Be the friend to her that she is to you
Open your eyes and do what you have to do

Chorus:
This is me, do I look the same
This is me, can you feel my pain
This is me, can I make you see
The other person inside of me

Chorus:
This is me, do I look the same
This is me, can you feel my pain
This is me, can I make you see
The other person inside of me
This is me
This is me
This is me
Track Name: All That You Are
9. All that you are
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

The love affair is over
How did I manage till the end
Tried so hard to make you hate me
Risking the chance of being friends
Didn’t know how I would tell you
Too much emotion safely inside
Yeah I was scared
My head was reeling
Didn’t wanna’ see the hurt
In your eyes

I bet they think I’m the hard one
Forcing you to make this sacrifice
And I can’t tell you how I’m feeling
Cuts me too, just like a knife
I know it was the best thing
Cause we know it was just a lie
We tried so hard to keep things going
But inside our hearts had died

Chorus:
All that you are, all that you do
I never felt the need for you
All that you have, all that you’ll be
I never needed anyone but me

Well a few years have passed since
We went our separate ways
And looking back in reflection
We’ve both seen brighter days
I know that you’ve been busy
In the letters you write to me
And Lord I’m just so grateful
That you’re still a friend to me

Chorus:
All that you are, all that you do
I never felt the need for you
All that you have, all that you’ll be
I never needed anyone but me

Chorus:
All that you are, all that you do
I never felt the need for you
All that you have, all that you’ll be
I never needed anyone but me

I never needed anyone but me

No one but me
Track Name: Heart Beating Strongly
10. Heart Beating Strongly
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

She’s got to a place and a time
Where she can’t separate her heart from her mind
Her head say’s “Do this”
It leads she follows
And people think she is standing tall
But deep inside she feels so small
Her heart on the back seat
It bleeds, she swallows

Cause the heartache just gets stronger
Constant reminder of those who wronged her
Don’t wanna’ sit on all of this
A minute longer

Chorus:
What you see you’re not getting
We gently peel away the layers
Bit by bit to show the heart that’s beating strongly
All the years of hurt and anger
We gently soothe the sore and tender
Bit by bit to show the heart that’s beating strongly
Beating Strongly

A careless comment caught you unawares
And you didn’t know what to say
And though it hurts
You still say nothing
So people think they can put you down
And talk as if you were not around
Once again you let it slide
For another day

Cause the heartache just gets stronger
Constant reminder of those who wronged her
Don’t wanna” sit on all of this
A minute longer

Chorus:
What you see you’re not getting
We gently peel away the layers
Bit by bit to show the heart that’s beating strongly
All the years of hurt and anger
We gently soothe the sore and tender
Bit by bit to show the heart that’s beating strongly
Beating Strongly

Bit by bit, beating strongly
Bit by bit, beating strongly
Bit by bit, beating strongly
Yeah, Yeah
Track Name: Father's Son
11. Father’s Son
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

The art of conversation
He never learnt from you
You had not a word to say
To waste on this fool
The fool remains silent
As you walk into the room
Afraid to say the wrong thing
And the fight that could ensue

Chorus:
I can’t imagine, how he feels
No doubt it’s not occurred to you
For his unconditional love is lost
When given to you
You know the truth, can’t tell you what you’ve done
And in the end you don’t comprehend
He is just, he is just, his father’s son

With no-one there to guide him
For him to look up to
In your eyes he’s a failure
Not worth helping through
So he got involved in these things
When you refused to steer him clear
And risked the chance of making
A way of life to him so dear

Chorus:
I can’t imagine, how he feels
No doubt it’s not occurred to you
For his unconditional love is lost
When given to you
You know the truth, can’t tell you what you’ve done
And in the end you don’t comprehend
He is just, he is just, his father’s son
Track Name: Money Honey
12. Money Honey
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

I got a message I can’t get to you
You’re on the run and I can’t find you
Come on baby please give me some time
Before this girl goes out of her mind
You got something, that I want
Come on and give me what I need
Don’t you worry, it’ll be alright
Just give it up, don’t put up a fight

Chorus:
Cause I’ve got all the friends that I’ll ever need
I’ve got all the money, honey, yes indeed
I’ve had all the lovers that I’ll ever want
But I ain’t, no I ain’t got you.

A better man I won’t ever find
You’re on my mind nearly all the time
I can’t stand another night alone
I’m through with talking on the telephone
You got something that I want
Come on and give me what I need
Don’t you worry, it’ll be alright
Just give it up, don’t put up a fight

Chorus:
Cause I’ve got all the friends that I’ll ever need
I’ve got all the money, honey, yes indeed
I’ve had all the lovers that I’ll ever want
But I ain’t, no I ain’t got you.

And if you think I would let you down, oh baby
You got it wrong, cause I want you around
To fill this empty space in my heart
Cause you’re the one, I knew it from the start

Chorus:
Cause I’ve got all the friends that I’ll ever need
I’ve got all the money, honey, yes indeed
I’ve had all the lovers that I’ll ever want
But I ain’t, no I ain’t got you.
No I ain’t got you
No I ain’t got you
Ain’t got you
Ain’t got you
Ain’t got you
Track Name: Just So Easy
13. Just so easy
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

I’m trying hard to do as we agreed
Trying not to get too close
But it’s almost impossible to fight this thing
Think I’ve got an overdose

So you can see you’ve gotta do something
Cause it’s your fault I feel this way
One sweet night was all it took of you
And your passionate way

Chorus:
It’s just so easy to fall in love with you
I think I’m gonna break the pact
It’s just so easy to fall in love with you
I’m not talking fiction, I’m talking fact

What’s a girl supposed to do
When you cook her food and run her bath
And when you snuggle up close to me
And when I’m down you make me laugh

Now I’m not saying you’re Mister Perfect
You’ve got your share of flaws
I wouldn’t say you’ve got me hooked
But you could hang me on the back of your door

Chorus:
It’s just so easy to fall in love with you
I think I’m gonna break the pact
It’s just so easy to fall in love with you
I’m not talking fiction, I’m talking fact

You say you don’t wanna take this thing further
But everyday it gets a little bit harder
How can we tell if we’re on the right track
It’s you and me baby, we may never look back

Chorus:
It’s just so easy to fall in love with you
I think I’m gonna break the pact
It’s just so easy to fall in love with you
I’m not talking fiction, I’m talking fact

Chorus:
It’s just so easy to fall in love with you
I think I’m gonna break the pact
It’s just so easy to fall in love with you
I’m not talking fiction, I’m talking fact

I’m not talking fiction, I’m talking fact
I’m not talking fiction, I’m talking fact
