Track Name: From the Inside out
From the Inside Out
©1996, 2012 Sam Rogers, Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

everyone wants your body
nothing more 'cause they get scared
about the things that you're thinking and feeling
so many boys, so unprepared
a man can handle more of you
and shine love through fears and doubt
if you want a man to want all of you, then baby
why don't you try me out?

I wanna love from the inside out
I wanna love you from the inside out
I wanna know what you're all about
So I can love you from the inside out

People around don't look inside you
they see only what they want to see
I know you're more than people give you credit for
your beauty's much more than skin deep
I could tell at first glance
you got a heart of gold
that's ready for a real romance
all your mind, your body, & your soul
Building trust, let's go slow
I got time for you girl
Ain't no rush to get down deep, so
deeply, I wanna get your world

So I can love you from the inside out
I wanna love you from the inside out
I wanna know what you're all about
as I love loving you from the inside out

Hey, I wanna get your world
So I can love you girl
Keep lovin' from the the inside out
Track Name: So Simple, So Beautiful
So Simple, So Beautiful
©2006, 2012 Sam Rogers, Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

that penetrating glance
the fire of your stare
your eyes have me entranced
I'll follow you anywhere
I can't resist your shine
your visage is so divine
now widening the view
taking in some more of you
so simple and so beautiful too
attracted, distracted, endlessly amused by you

the music of your voice
the artwork in your smile
your lips give me no choice
but to love you, meanwhile
the poetry you speak
makes me strong, makes me weak
and that's just your mouth
further beauty further south
so simple and so beautiful too
attracted, distracted, endlessly amused
just walk into a crowded room and breathe
right away I feel it's you
the softest, smallest things
and I fall in love anew
so simple, so beautiful

perhaps we'll never be
closer than we are now
if so it's fine with me
I'm grateful for you anyhow
because becoming love through you
changes everything I do
it might be all I get
but I bet we're not done yet
so simple and so beautiful too
attracted, distracted, endlessly amused by you
just walk into a crowded room and breathe
right away I feel you
the softest, smallest things
and I fall in love anew
so simple, so beautiful
so simple ...
Track Name: Just Us Two
Just Us Two
©2008, 2012 Sam Rogers, Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

we've been together through thick and through thin
completely committed, all the way in
but now I'm confused by what's happening to you
why can't it be enough, with just us two?
now you want to breed, you wanna make babies
but what about me? I never wanted to start a family
but why call it off? why call it quits?
does it have to mean the end of all this?
you say your mom wants grandkids. yeah, mine does too,
but this is not their life, this is me and you
why can't it stay that way? I love you
please don't go away don't say that we're through
just 'cause you want to breed, yeah you wanna make babies
but I need to breathe, and slow down your biology
let's let the clock tick, while we just talk
the air in here is thick, let's go for a walk
I want you, I need you, let's argue this thing through
don't wanna lose you, just wanna love you
It's me here, can't you see who's standing right in front of you?
don't ultimatum me and make me ultimatum you
don't leave me with the choice to break us up or mate with you
when you manipulate I don't know what to make of you
don't throw it all away just 'cause you
want to breed, you want to make babies
but what about me? I never wanted to start a family
I know you want to breed, yeah you wanna make babies
you won't get them from me, but let's not end all we can be
I know you want to breed...
Track Name: Carried Away
©2011, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

I went to a wedding today and I wished you were with me
Went to a wedding today and I thought about you
I wanted you there by me side
I thought about you someday being my bride and I...
I just wanted you here, I just want you
I just wanted you here, I just want you
I'm getting carried away, I'm getting carried
I'm getting carried away, I'm getting carried
All of the dreams that I'm building involve you
Much to my surprise you show up in my plans
I'm loving you here at my side
I think about you and my heart opens up wide and I...
I just wanted you here, I just want you
I just wanted you here, I just want you
I know I'm getting carried away, I'm getting carried
Yeah I'm getting carried away, I'm getting carried
Carried, Carried, Carried, Carried
Track Name: Kiss That Didn't Happen
Kiss That Didn't Happen
©2012, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

it's been a long, long, long time coming
since we've been friends through the years
we never seem to be single at the same time
so now I'm leaving my side clear
you say your relationship is already done in
but I won't be the one to justify his fears
when you're finally done with him just come running
you know I'm gonna be right here, and I'll still be singing

the kiss that didn't happen, rocked my world
the kiss that didn't happen, won't go away
the kiss that didn't happen, is right here on my lips
the kiss that didn't happen will someday, will someday

I wish your man would love you up
you need to be celebrated
when he lets go, I'll step right up
and make you so glad that we waited
though it's true our lips have yet to touch
and our hands have only ever held
while our bodies have barely known each other
my heart can hardly tell

your beauty shines beneath your face
I'd know that smile from anyplace
and yes I always want a taste, mmm
I've loved you longer than I know
and it's a love I'd like to grow, whoa
as on & on & on & on & on & on through time we go

the kiss that didn't happen, rocked my world
the kiss that didn't happen, won't go away
the kiss that didn't happen, is right here on my lips
the kiss that didn't happen will someday, will someday
Track Name: So Very Pleasurable
So Very Pleasurable
©2011, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

So very pleasurable
So very pleasurable
strong feelings, strong actions
strong beings, strong attractions
So very pleasurable
Here and now
Deep into the here and now
Hearts, hands, lips, and skin
Letting go, letting flow, from within
Candles flicker in the dim
Deep inside, amplified pulse rhythm
breath rising, moon setting
hearts leading, minds letting
Slowing time into the here and now
You and I into the here and now
We just shine into the here and now
so very pleasurable
Soul to Soul, Soul through Soul
One and Whole, where we go is...
So very pleasurable, mmm
Track Name: Rajani
Rajani
©2008, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

Rajani, your energy is raw and strong on your TaKeTiNability
Your personality, your sensuality, raises something more than just my curiosity
Rajani, honestly those little emails set of my biology
They're more than comedy, this could be chemistry, don't know just yet, but one thing I'll say with certainty is
You with a capital Y, and me with a capital I
makes me wanna get up and stand up and testify, a wonder why?
Rajani, beauty, thank you for this application's opportunity.
I can't wait to be in your company, and to explore some footsie and flattery.
Track Name: Straight Man
Straight Man
©2012, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

as a straight man, I ain't threatened by no gay ones
as a married man, why are you?
all my brother loving brothers, and every sister loving sister
whether you call it right or wrong, they're gonna get it on
as a single man, I ain't the one to talk of marriage, no
but this thing I know: it ain't about the sex
and if you ever thought it was, I bet by now you're disappointed
it's about love and family
marriage is about love and it's about family

you talk about God, shouting about abominations
But if God is Love, what's with all the hate?
And who do you serve by depriving others of love?
Why don't you take a good hard look and decide who's side you're on.
That's right I said a good hard look to decide who's side you're on.

you don't have to like it, no, nobody's making you watch
you don't have to teach it, you just teach like you were taught
don't gotta like the people, don't think they much like you
just get out of the way and let the lovers just do what they do
what's it to you?

You talk about sin like you know a lot about it
You talk about institutions like maybe you belong in one
Now I'm from the Left Coast, so I been brought up hippy-crazy
I've got these funny notions about freedom and equality
I get outta way the way of love, when it don't hurt nobody
why don't you get outta the way of love if it ain't hurting nobody?

'cuz if you have to legislate your morals to affirm your faith,
you haven't got any
you haven't got any
Track Name: Could Love
Could Love
©2006, 2012 Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

I could love so deeply
I could love so much
I could love so many
I could love, so what?

What love do I give right now, right now?
Which love do I let in?
When love's potential starts to spark
Do I do more than begin?
What loves do I really love?
Which loves do I restrain?
When love appears in foreign form
Do I instead try to be sane?

I want to love beyond all reason
I want to ride love's waves
And yet I seek protection
At the chance of being brave
I feel the pull, I run away
Trying not to run too far
Half-loved loves held on too much
As all my loves now are

What loves do we give right now?
Which loves do we let in?
When love's potential starts to spark
Do you do more than begin?
Or do you feel the pull, and run away?
Trying not to run too far
Half-loved loves held on too much
As so many loves are

I could love so deeply
I could love so much
I could love so many
I could love, so what?

Track Name: Much Better
MUCH BETTER
©2012, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

I wondered if I'd ever love again
If my life was headed any direction
Then I let go and I felt much better
oh so much better

Maybe it'd start with a good fling
I thought for certain that I'd see it coming
I wanted what I'd dreamed but this is much better
oh so much better

You didn't hit me like a freight train
This isn't even moving in the fast lane
Oh but the power our love contains is much better
oh so much better
oh so much better

This love is truly what I've wanted my lifelong
And it seems so silly that it's that it took so long
to arrive here, right here beside you
now everything's better because of you

I thought I had to get my ducks in a row
and all pieces come together and fit just so
but no, I missed that by a long shot
still it's much better than I ever thought

I was wrong about the hole in my heart
I never thought it'd give me a head start
It's more than hurt, it's the perfect opening
and it works much better for loving

Well I thought that love was gonna cure my pain
And I wandered round the world and back again
Just to find my way back here to you
now everything's better with you
life is so much better
oh so much better
Track Name: All Ways
All Ways
©2009, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP)

as I think about you like I do now all the time
I feel a lot feelings and they all intertwine
love, longing, trust, and faith
turned on, turned inside-out, and ready to play
Seems we're together all the way,
in all ways, all ways

In my time few people have caught my eye
only handful caught my heart
of those maybe one or two have satisfied
and only you have seen every part
in all ways, in all of the ways

I can barely take it when you're far away, mmm
But I can hold on and carry through into another day, mmm
Try and stay focused and work on the work in front of me
I just wish you were here right now, as you soon will be

It's never been this easy
It's never been this drama-free
There's never been a question in me
That bein' with you is how it's supposed to be
always
in all of the ways
ooh, baby I love your ways
ooh, baby I love your ways
