I'M NOT DONE YET 

CHORUS:  
I’M NOT DONE YET  
I’M NOT DONE YET  
Go and tell the world that  
I’M NOT DONE YET  
I’M NOT DONE YET  
I’M NOT DONE YET  
I’ve still got things to do  
So, I’M NOT DONE YET  

Twists and turns  
Crash and burn  
Lord, by now  
You’d think that I’d learn  
The best-laid plans  
Of mice and men  
Go awry  
Once again  

PRE-CHORUS: 
But it’s not over  
Till it’s over  
It’s not the end  
Until it ends 

CHORUS 

SOLO (verse) 

PRE-CHORUS & CHORUS

The fates allow  
What they allow  
I used to think  
But here’s what I’ve found  
It’s still me  
Who holds the key  
Open doors 
Learn to be  

PRE-CHORUS & CHORUS

ARIZONA SKIES 

Once I lived in Hollywood 
Near Hollywood and Vine 
Rubbed shoulders with a star or two 
Watched them as they'd shine 
But all the tinsel glory 
That sparkled ‘fore my eyes 
Never once took the place 
Of those ARIZONA SKIES 

CHORUS: 
And I can’t help but remember 
The skies in Arizona 
On those warm, peaceful 
Arid summer nights 
I wander through this life 
And I marvel at the sights 
But I never seem to find 
ARIZONA SKIES 

I’ve also been to Ireland 
That jewel cast in the sea 
Coal-black eyes and lullabies 
And heather on the lea 
But all the verdant beauty 
That softly hypnotized 
Never dimmed the memory 
Of those ARIZONA SKIES 

CHORUS 

I’ve even lived in Tokyo 
In a house down by the bay 
If things had worked out differently 
I might still be there today 
But all the viral energy 
That used to tantalize 
Never touched me deep inside 
Like those ARIZONA SKIES 

CHORUS (solo) 

BRIDGE:
Dusty roads and pavement black 
Leading on, never turning back 
Chasing my elusive destiny 
London, Paris, Amsterdam 
Moscow, Prague, who gives a damn 
I've been everywhere 
but where I long to be
 

Made my way back homeward 
Not so long ago 
Your mother said you had wed 
I said I hadn't known 
So, I drove up to the foothills 
To our secret paradise 
And I thought about the two of us 
‘neath those ARIZONA SKIES 

CHORUS

A MAN AND A WOMAN 

Up on her mantle 
There’s a faded photograph 
A young lad in uniform 
He’s walking with a lass 
I recognize her features 
She was pretty in her day 
Her hair dark as a moonless night 
Now it’s turned to grey 

I used to tend her garden 
When I was a kid 
Go in for lemonade 
See the photo when I did 
She never talked about him 
The young man in the frame 
And of all the times we chatted 
She never spoke his name 

CHORUS: 
A MAN AND A WOMAN 
A woman and a man 
They’re strolling on a beach somewhere 
They’re footprints in the sand 
The man loves the woman 
The woman loves the man 
That’s how life has been 
Since the world began 

I went back to see her 
The last time I was home 
She still raises flowers 
She still lives alone 
Another glass of lemonade 
Another friendly chat 
But this time I broach the subject 
I asked her about that 

BRIDGE: 
That, ah, the photo 
Is that what you mean 
What must I have been back then 
Maybe still nineteen 

She said his name was Jimmy 
He was headed overseas 
I met him at a dance downtown 
He was only home on leave 
We would have gotten married 
I still have the ring 
But Jimmy never made it home 
He never saw the spring 

CHORUS (repeat) 

We talked a little longer 
We gossiped and we mused 
She said I took up gardening 
The day I got the news 
I don’t know why I did it 
I just had a need 
To feel the good earth in my two hands 
So I started planting seeds 

CHORUS (repeat)

PRE-CHORUS & CHORUS (repeat)

Sexual Creature 

Met her at a party 
The friend of a friend 
My world turned upside down 
When she walked in 
She wasn't really beautiful 
It wasn't her perfume 
But all eyes were on her 
As she moved across the room 

CHORUS: 
She’s a SEXUAL CREATURE 
It's obvious when you meet her 
She's a woman who loves making love 
Don't start jumping to conclusions 
Let me clear up any confusion 
She's just a woman who loves making love 

She started walking toward me 
She held me in her gaze 
More than captivated 
I was trapped in a haze 
My heart was beating faster 
My loins began to stir 
My mind started racing 
The room became a blur 

CHORUS 

Samson had Delilah 
Louis had Pompadour 
History books called it love 
But that’s not the score 
It wasn’t Helen's beauty 
That launched all those ships 
Menelaus went to get her 
With these words on his lips 

CHORUS 

I may not be Samson 
I may not be a king 
As far as waging war 
I don’t know a thing 
But when it comes to instinct 
I'm not deaf or blind 
Especially when confronted 
With something this divine 

 BRIDGE
You probably want an ending 
To know how it went 
But my mama taught me 
Not to kiss and comment 

CHORUS

ANASTASIA

ANASTASIA lets her hair down 
As she falls into my arms 
She allows me the conceit 
That she’s a victim of my charms 
But her being here tonight 
Is not of my design 
ANASTASIA writes the scripts 
I merely say my lines 

ANASTASIA laughs a little 
As she whispers in my ear 
The things that she tells me 
I alone to hear 
She says that I’m her lover 
She says that I’m her friend 
But she mostly speaks of visions 
I do not comprehend 

CHORUS: 
ANASTASIA keeps her secrets 
There's so much that I don't know 
I only catch a glimmer 
Only what she shows 
Mystery upon mystery 
She's a riddle I can't solve 
When I think I see her clearly 
The image then dissolves 

ANASTASIA lights a candle 
Then she lies across my bed 
She gazes at the shadows 
Dancing overhead 
When I start to say I love her 
She wrinkles up her nose 
But then ANASTASIA smiles 
And tells me that she knows 

ANASTASIA sleeps beside me 
Our bodies intertwine 
The room smells of incense 
Love-making and wine 
I watch her as she slumbers 
I listen to her breathe 
Her soul no longer troubled 
By thoughts to me bequeathed 

CHORUS 

ANASTASIA, in the morning 
Rises with the dawn 
When I wake and look around me 
I find that she is gone
