Songs (with lyrics) include:
The Best Thing About Me is You
The End of the Road
Every Day is Christmas in my Heart 
The Face of a Clown 
Falling Out of Love 
Got the Temporary Blues
The Grass is Always Greener 
   on the Other Side
Here in the Silence
I'd Do It All Again
It Isn't Spring at All
It's Nice to be in Touch Again
I've Been Lookin' for Love
  (in all the wrong places)
I Wouldn't Trade You for the World
Little Boy Lost
Lost in a Kiss
Many a Time
Matters of the Heart
Paris in the Rain
Time to Get Romantic Now
Waitin' for the Snow to Blow
Where Do We Go From Here?
Why Did You Go So Soon?
You Can't Do Nothin' 'bout Love 
You Never Ever
You're My Best Friend
