Adam Clarke One of the best eighties Synthwave albums I've heard in a long time. I just absolutely love 'Steal My Love', it gives me that Janet Jackson 'Control' vibes! Favorite track: Steal My Love.

FoxPuppy Many "retro" albums try to capture a "retro" style, but it's not easy to recapture the feel and vibe of a certain era. This album captures the synth, the soul, the fun of the late 80's and early 90's very well. Using great songwriting and some of the best voices in synth music. This album was one of the best of 2020 and a definitely "must have" for fans of synthwave. I can't wait to put this one on the stereo next summer when I'm out in the yard. Favorite track: Fixing Me With Love.

Anymore time on someone else’s feelings (You’ve been stealing..) All of me and Everything I had to give, I’m gettin’ over your Little things I know for sure that.. CHORUS I won’t let you You’re not gonna drag me down You held me back but now I’m running You can’t stop me you just better Move on baby I’m not gonna wait around I’ll be just fine without you baby I’m not gonna let you steal my love V2 I’m seeing all the games you play Giving me the losing hand You’d be right there to save me baby Everything was planned You’d bring me down to lift me up Now I’m standing on my own It’s hard for you to hear me say I’d rather be all alone no PRE More time wasting Waiting for you to come through On your word but (You were stealing..) All of me and Everything I had to give, I’m gettin’ over your Little lies I know for sure that.. CHORUS I won’t let you You’re not gonna drag me down You held me back but now I’m running You can’t stop me you just better Move on baby I’m not gonna wait around I’ll be just fine without you baby I’m not gonna let you steal my love BRIDGE (Love sweet love) You nearly stole my heart (Gave you all) With nothing left to spare (Took control) Controlling every move I make but now I’m breaking free from your hold on me BREAKDOWN There used to be a time when I’d Be waiting by the phone But since I changed my number babY I can be left alone You promised me a million things Don’t want to hear another word I’ve shut you down and cut you off I’m getting what I deserve You’re not stealing.. my love I am keeping.. my word To myself yeah.. you heard Don’t Speak..

With, a little touchy feely? I can’t be yours officially But in due time I might just be….Your lover But don’t put me under pressure Taking it slow is better Than trying to force “forever”, force “forever” BRIDGE I just want to be homies Have a little fun while you get to know me And while I get to know you better I just want to take it slowly Baby what’s the rush? Don’t be tripping over me, don’t be tripping over me Can I keep it real? Keep it real I just want to chill Just chill And maybe cop a feel You made it seem like it was no big deal.

VERSE 1 When we started I was nothing but a broken-hearted lover But you’re winning over As you take me under blankets and covers Oh, baby, when you hold me close I almost forget the pain I never thought I would Ever be whole again CHORUS But you’re fixing me with love Reviving me with your touch Soothing me with your body You’re finding the broken parts The pieces of my heart And bringing me back to life All at once You’re healing me up VERSE 2 Nothing mattered I was stuck inside a vicious pattern ‘till ya came But I’m feeling all better Cuz, baby, when we’re together Everything’s right as rain One kiss and I’m revitalized This moment is magical You’re bringing me back to life What you’re doing is powerful CHORUS Cuz you’re fixing me with love Reviving me with your touch Soothing me with your body You’re finding the broken parts The pieces of my heart And bringing me back to life All at once You’re healing me up BRIDGE I was trapped by my own expectations I was all in my head But you came and rebuilt the foundation Made me believe again Feels good to back It’s such a rush To be free from my past In love You healed me up CHORUS You’re fixing me with love Reviving me with your touch Soothing me with your body You’re finding the broken parts The pieces of my heart And bringing me back to life All at once You’re healing me up

VERSE 1 I know you said you love him. But that don't mean a thing when you're around me. I know he's never let you down. But girl that doesn't mean that he's exciting, PRE-CHORUS Say it to his face. That there's nothing he can do to change your mind. And you really don't want to waste his time. But everything you see, keeps convincing you, you need me in your life. CHORUS Does he, keep you waiting by the telephone. Does he, give you feelings that you've never known, were real. Does he give you goose bumps on your skin. Make you melt when you're with him. Girl, you already know, you should listen to your heart. For real. Listen to your heart. Does he give you goose bumps on your skin. Make you melt when you're with him. Girl, you already know, no, no, no, no, you should listen to your heart. VERSE 2 I know he said forever. But forever's such a long time, when you're feeling someone else. And I know he's trying his best. To get you to remember things that you know you never felt. PRE-CHORUS Say it to his face. That there's nothing he can do to change your mind. And you really don't want to waste his time. But everything you see, keeps convincing you, you need me in your life. CHORUS Does he, keep you waiting by the telephone. Does he, give you feelings that you've never known, were real. Does he give you chills beneath your skin. Make you melt when you're with him. Girl, you already know, you should listen to your heart. BRIDGE And you can't ignore the voices in your mind, saying, Girl you'd better leave, better leave the boy behind, oh. And you know you're only wasting your time, when you're, Saying that you're his, whilst praying you were mine. Oh girl, you know it feels wrong to keep him hanging on. The quicker you let him go, the sooner he moves on. But every moment that he spends, Thinking you will never end. He could be learning to love again. [CHORUS] OUTRO: Heart, heart, heart. Listen to your heart girl, listen.

VERSE 1 I ain't talkin' forever Just need some time Coz I'm fresh out of courage To speak my mind I can see a high wind blowing Across our ventured plain Has the last straw broken? Do you still feel the same? CHORUS You and I both got Something bigger than the fall A Stranger Love, Stranger Love And we tear out every page And leave nothing left to waste A Stranger Love, Stranger Love Not in your nature To be so vacant It don't matter who's right Just thought you should know You can call this what you like It's Stranger Love, stranger love VERSE 2 I never killed the feeling Like the one we had When I said I would be there My work just held me back So we go through the motion And swear on our lives No one else can disarm me No one else has your light CHORUS 2 You and I both got Something bigger than the fall A Stranger Love, Stranger Love And we tear out every page And leave nothing left to waste A Stranger Love, Stranger Love You made me feel like I count for something It's only after you realise How faith gets blinded You can call it what you like And it's a Stranger Love BRIDGE I could be wrong about this, but maybe I’m right Let all our troubles fade out, into the night, to the night CHORUS You and I both got Something bigger than the fall A Stranger Love, Stranger Love And we tear out every page And leave nothing left to waste A Stranger Love, Stranger Love Not in your nature To be so vacant And it don't matter who's right Just thought you should know That you can call it what you like Stranger Love OUTRO We’ve got a stranger love We’ve got a stranger love You know we’ve got it Stranger Love, Stranger Love A Strange Love, Stranger Love We’ve got a Stranger love, Stranger Love You know we’ve got it Stranger love, Stranger Love I ain't talkin' forever Just need some time

April Fool 04:36
VERSE 1 I said a little too much It was only semi true My love for you And though you reach out and touch me It lacks all the chemistry My body's been lying to you PRE-CHORUS So you're sippin' on your ice tea Talking never comes easily You play your games and I play mine But we both know that we're only wasting our time CHORUS (And I'm) Just an April fool A fool to think that a boy like me could hold your hand Just an April fool You need someone, need somebody better than me VERSE 2 I hope you know I could have done better I could have saved your time But in my selfish affections I see no reflection of my lust I'm lying to you PRE-CHORUS So you're sippin' on your ice tea We're never end things peacefully So you're sippin' on your ice tea Talking never comes easily BREAKDOWN I don't know you Anymore than you know me And I can't bare to see You falling apart in my disease CHORUS (And I'm) Just an April fool A fool to think that a boy like me could hold your hand Just an April fool You need someone, need somebody better than me

VERSE 1 The world can be so unforgiving, Too many hurt by painful lies. It almost ended this poor fool, Just saved by the kindness within your eyes. CHORUS But now with you I don’t feel so broken. You don’t know what this means to me. Your touch, your smile, All the words unspoken. Feels like a Neverending dream. VERSE 2 I’ll dim the lights in the apartment, So go ahead and close the door. Just wrap me up in your sweet embrace, And make me forget all there was before. CHORUS Here now, with you I don’t feel so broken. You don’t know what this means to me. Your touch, your smile, All the words unspoken. Feels like a Neverending dream. BRIDGE Perfect, this moment. Truly, I’ll be yours forever. Can’t get you out of my mind. Falling, breathless, you make me feel alive. CHORUS But now with you I don’t feel so broken. You don’t know what this means to me. Your touch, your smile, All the words unspoken. Feels like a Neverending dream. Here now with you I don’t feel so broken. You don’t know what this means to me. Your touch, your smile, All the words unspoken. Please never wake me from this dream.

Cold Hearted 04:27
VERSE 1 You got it all worked out. Grade A body, intellect to match. We can cut loose, no strings attached. At all. And I can tell from your eyes. That you're never gonna give up seeing other guys. You tell me that you gotta have room to fly away. PRE-CHORUS Baby girl, I know there's a lot of shit happening in your life. But I wanna be the first one that springs to your mind. When you're sitting at home, all alone and bored at night. CHORUS Oh you can be so cold hearted, Can't we finish what we started, Girl come back around. Oh, come back around. Oh why you gotta be so distant? Oh, it hurts when you dismiss me. I can't work you out. I can't work you out. Cold hearted. VERSE 2 And I don't wanna feel like this no more. And I don't wanna feel like I've been holding something that. Can never be real. Not making me feel like I wanted. It's been so wrong. For so long. And I don't wanna wait no more. PRE-CHORUS I know there's a lot of shit happening in your life. But I wanna be the first one that springs to your mind. When you're sitting at home, all alone and bored at night. CHORUS Oh you can be so cold hearted, Can't we finish what we started, Girl come back around. Oh, come back around. Oh why you gotta be so distant? Oh, it hurts when you dismiss me. I can't work you out. I can't work you out. Cold hearted. BRIDGE Oh baby I know you're ice cold, but you're burning me up inside. With the things you say. Oh girl I pray. You'll look my way, one time. CHORUS Oh you can be so cold hearted, Can't we finish what we started, Girl come back around. Oh, come back around. Oh why you gotta be so distant? Oh, it hurts when you dismiss me. I can't work you out. I can't work you out. Cold hearted. OUTRO Why does it always feel like, I'm the last to know. What's going through your mind, what's going through your mind. Even through it all girl, I don't want to let you go. What's going through my mind, what's going through my mind. (Oh, If you wanna call me up, don't stop, oh girl just call out my name. And if you wanna be the one I hold at night, just stop playing games.) CHORUS Oh you can be so cold hearted, Can't we finish what we started, Girl come back around. Oh, come back around. Oh why you gotta be so distant? Oh, it hurts when you dismiss me. I can't work you out. I can't work you out.
