Track Name: Living and Loving in the USA
Long Beach California is where we stayed,
before checking out the styling in downtown L.A.
The Old Queen Mary opened up her arms,
and before too long we fell under her charms.

Ooh, ooh we checked into a suite,
spent a lot of time between the clean white sheets.
Ooh, ooh it felt so fine...
Making love and drinking Californian wine.

I took my love to the Fantasy Palms
and while the Beach Boys sang I took her into my arms.
Good vibrations seemed to fill the air.
I lost myself in the scent of her hair.

Ooh, ooh we laughed and we cried
being moved by emotions that you just can't hide
Ooh, ooh it felt so fine...
Making love and drinking Californian wine.

Californian days, you know, are hot and long.
But when the night comes down you here a different song.
We drove our love across the desert sands,
And in a little white chapel I took her by the hand.

Ooh, ooh we were married there,
Me and my ever lovin' lady fair.
Ooh, ooh it felt so fine...
Making love and drinking Californian wine.

We were living and loving in the USA
We were living and loving in the USA
We were living and loving in the USA
We were living and loving in the USA
Track Name: All That I Want (Is You)
There's more ways to win babe,
Than more ways to lose.
More ways forgivin'
Than you might choose.

No point in crying
when we know what's true.
No point denying,
you know I love you...

All that I want is you.
All that I need it's true.
You're all I perceive, just you and me.

It goes without saying,
that words aren't enough.
But I'm here with you always,
Through good times and tough.

And if love is a reason,
then faith is as well.
And all the doom and the nay sayers,
They can all go to hell.

All that I want is you.
All that I need it's true.
You're all I perceive, just you and me.

So when skies are all shrouded, baby
And if skies should turn blue.
Through the long and the dark hours, baby,
This song is for you.

So hold it in your heart, baby,
hold it within.
For you are a vision, baby,
so much sweeter than sin.

All that I want is you.
All that I need it's true.
You're all I perceive, just you and me.
