Track Name: I Fall to Pieces
I fall to pieces
Each time I see you again
I fall to pieces
How can I be just your friend?

You want me to act like we've never kissed
You want me to forget
Pretend we've never met
And I've tried and I've tried, but I haven't yet
You walk by and I fall to pieces

I fall to pieces
Each time someone speaks your name
I fall to pieces
Time only adds to the flame

You tell me to find someone else to love
Someone who'll love me too
The way you used to do
But each time I go out with someone new
You walk by and I fall to pieces
You walk by and I fall to pieces
Track Name: Whispering Sea
I sat down by the sea and it whispered to me
It brought back an old love affair that used to be
It told me that you had found someone new
And lead me to cry over you

Whispering sea rolling by why don't you listen to me cry?
I cry because my love was proved untrue
Oh, how I love him so, no one will ever know
No one but the drifting, whispering sea

Well, I thought I'd left behind all his love but I was blind
I should have known that there was no use to be caring
I thought a new love I would find, that you'd never cross my mind
But the whispering sea, it talked to me

Whispering sea rolling by why don't you listen to me cry
I cry because my love was proved untrue
Oh, how I love him so, no one will ever know
No one but the drifting, whispering sea
Track Name: Mexicali Rose
Lyrics:
Mexicali Rose stop crying
I'll come back to you some sunny day.
Every night you'll know that I'll be pining
Every hour a year while I'm away.
Dry those big brown eyes and smile dear
Banish all those tears and please don't cry
Kiss me once again and hold me
Mexicali Rose, goodbye.

Mexicali Rose I'm leaving
Don't feel blue
Mexicali Rose stop greiving
I love you
When the dove of love is winging
through the blue
All the castles you've been building
will come true
Track Name: (you've got to) Go
i wanna say please please don’t go
i want to stand in your way
i want to be all of you dream of
i’ll be so sad sad sad when you go away

(chorus)
you’ve got to go
live your life
if you stay here your dreams will die
you’ve got to go
experience the world
the more you see
the more you will be
you’ve got to go

i’ll be thinkin’ of a plan to keep you here
locked in my arms you couldn’t get away
please don’t go I’ll be so lonely
learning to live life without you everyday

(chorus)
Track Name: Who's that Girl?
When you see her, say a prayer and kiss your heart goodbye
She's trouble, in a word get closer to the fire
Run faster, her laughter burns you up inside
You're spinning round and round
You can't get up, you try but you can't

[Chorus:]
¿Quién es esa niña?
Señorita, mas fina.
¿Quién es esa niña?
Señorita, mas fina.

You try to avoid her, fate is in your hands
She's smiling, an invitation to the dance
Her heart is on the street, tu corazón es suyo
Now you're falling at her feet
You try to get away but you can't

[Chorus]

Now, Who's that girl?
Now, Who's that girl?
Now, Who's that girl?
Now, Who's that girl?
Track Name: Por Un Amor
When you see her, say a prayer and kiss your heart goodbye
She's trouble, in a word get closer to the fire
Run faster, her laughter burns you up inside
You're spinning round and round
You can't get up, you try but you can't

[Chorus:]
¿Quién es esa niña?
Señorita, mas fina.
¿Quién es esa niña?
Señorita, mas fina.

You try to avoid her, fate is in your hands
She's smiling, an invitation to the dance
Her heart is on the street, tu corazón es suyo
Now you're falling at her feet
You try to get away but you can't

[Chorus]

Now, Who's that girl?
Now, Who's that girl?
Now, Who's that girl?
Now, Who's that girl?

[Chorus]
Track Name: Mexicali Rose (Reprise)
Mexicali Rose stop crying
I'll come back to you some sunny day.
Every night you'll know that I'll be pining
Every hour a year while I'm away.
Dry those big brown eyes and smile dear
Banish all those tears and please don't cry
Kiss me once again and hold me
Mexicali Rose, goodbye.

Mexicali Rose I'm leaving
Don't feel blue
Mexicali Rose stop greiving
I love you
When the dove of love is winging
through the blue
All the castles you've been building
will come true
