Coming Out Of Hiding
James Lee Stanley

This was my biggest song ever...It was #4 for the year on 1984 Billboard Dance Chart

Standing in the shadows too long
Waitin on the side lines too long
Boy I've been watchin you
now you're gonna watch me too
I'm Coming Out of Hiding

It's no mystery how you missed me for so long
But that's history you were so wrong for so long
Boy I've been wantin you
Now you're gonna want me too
I'm Coming Out of Hiding
I'm Coming out of Hiding
I'm Coming Out of Hiding

Standing in the shadows too long
Waitin on the side lines too long
Watchin and wanting you
now you're gonna watch me too
I'm Coming Out of Hiding
I'm Coming Out of Hiding

Coming Out of Hiding looking for somebody like you
Coming out of hiding Coming on the run
Coming for nobody but you

Coming... Out of Hiding
Coming ...Out of Hiding
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh

break

Coming Out of Hiding looking for somebody like you
Coming out of hiding Coming on the run
Coming for nobody but you

Coming..out of hiding..
I'm Out of Hiding
repeat to end



I Don't Want To Talk About It
James Lee Stanley

My brother James lee Stanley wrote this about a girl he dated while living in Santa Cruz CA...She drove him crazy...

YOU’VE GOT YOUR NERVE YOU CALL ME ON THE PHONE
SO EARLY IN THE MORNING DID YOU THINK I’D BE ALONE
YOU’LL NEVER CHANGE
THE WHOLE WORLD TURNS AROUND YOU

LAST TIME SHOULDA BEEN THE LAST TIME
LAST TIME SHOULDA BEEN THE LAST TIME
I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT

EVER SINCE I MET YOU I HAVEN’T BEEN THE SAME
YOU SHOW UP WHERE YOU WANNA
NOW I WANNA LAY THE BLAME
YOU’LL NEVER CHANGE
THE WHOLE WORLD TURNS AROUND YOU

LAST TIME SHOULDA BEEN THE LAST TIME
LAST TIME SHOULDA BEEN THE LAST TIME
I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT

OOOOH IT WAS SO EASY LIVIN IN SLOW MOTION
OOOOH IT WAS SO EASY TILL YOU GOT THE NOTION
TO FOOL AROUND AND MESS AROUND AND RUN AROUND
NOW I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT

EVERY TIME YOU LEAVE YOU PUT ON SUCH AN ACT
YOU SAY YOU’RE GOING FOR CIGARETTES
YOU NEVER DO COME BACK
WHAT AM I CRAZY…WE’VE DONE THIS NUMBER BEFORE

LAST TIME SHOULDA BEEN THE LAST TIME
LAST TIME SHOULDA BEEN THE LAST TIME
LAST TIME SHOULDA BEEN THE LAST TIME
I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
I DON’T WANT TO TALK

OFCOURSE HE EVENTUALLY BROKE MY HEART....BUT THE THOUGHT OF HIM STILL MAKES ME SMILE

Rhiannon
I have always loved Stevie Nicks and ha to record this song....my brother James Lee and I produced this together. Did we have fun making this one. He is a genius.

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
Wouldn’t you love to love her
She takes to the sky like a bird in flight
Who will be her lover

All your life you’ve never seen a woman
Taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark
when the sky is starless

All your life you’ve never seen a woman
Taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win   Will you ever win

Rhiannon
Rhiannon
Rhiannon

She is like a bell in the night
And wouldn’t you love to love her
She rules her life like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover

All your life you’ve never seen a woman
Taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win   Will you ever win

Rhiannon
Rhiannon
Rhiannon

Taken by  Taken by the Night
Taken by  Taken by the Night
Taken by  Taken by the Night


Hey Mr. Magic
Lou Schere and Rhoda Roberts

I met Lou and Rhoda while auditioning for Broadway plays in New York City in my early 20's. I used to do their backers auditions for them. They were such a talented writing team. Lou and I loved working together. He wrote the music and Rhoda wrote lyrics...such a talented duo. I sang all their demos for them.... anything from plays to commercials to songs. When I got my record deal on EMI Germany. I needed songs and I loved this one and 2 others on this album. Naturally they gave them to me. I took Lou to Germany with me and he played piano on my entire album. He was the best. At only 35 years old Lou died of an Asthma attack. His wife Irene, Rhoda and I mourned his loss for a long time but at least we have these treasures he left behind.
HEY MR. MAGIC lyrics
Sometimes you touch a chord in me It makes me want to cry
Sometimes you make me happy ‘till I feel like I can fly
When something deep is hurting You chase the blues away
Cause there’s magic in the music
So much magic in the music that you play

Hey Mr. Magic play that music
I hope the music never ends
Hey Mr. Magic play that music
I wanna hear it again and again and again
Allright…. ah uh ……yeah

Tonight you make me feel so free I wanna paint the skies
You’re beggin’ me to sing my song before my music dies
My head is turning circles and I feel so swept away
Cause there’s magic in the music
So much magic in the music that you play

Hey Mr. Magic play that music
I hope the music never ends
Hey Mr. Magic play that music
I wanna hear it again and again and again
Allright…. ah uh ……yeah

Play it again and again and again and again and again and again
Play it again and again and again and again and again and again
Play it again and again and again and again and again and again
Play it again and again and again and again and again and again

Hey Mr. Magic play that music
I hope the music never ends
Hey Mr. Magic play that music
I wanna hear it again and again and again


I'm Never Gonna Let You Go
Lou Schere and Rhoda Roberts

I’ve got a tender feeling and the feeling grows and grows
You’ve opened up a door I just can’t close
Look at me I’m scared to death
The words got loose and told me what to say
And now that I’ve said I love you
I’m never gonna let you get away

I’m never gonna let you go
You’re never gonna get away from me oh baby no no
I’m never gonna let you go
You’re never gonna get away from me
So Baby don’t go

You touch me and ferris wheels go turning in my head
You kiss me and lights go flashing red
Something wild just took control
It grabbed my soul and told me what to say
And now that I’ve said I love you
I’m never gonna let you get away

I’m never gonna let you go
You’re never gonna get away from me oh baby no no
I’m never gonna let you go
You’re never gonna get away from me
So Baby don’t go

I’ve got no place to hide my arms are open wide
so baby come on and step inside
I’m never gonna let you go
You’re never gonna get away from me oh baby no no
I’m never gonna let you go
You’re never gonna get away from me
So Baby don’t go

Only You Can Reach me
Pamala Stanley and David Zippel

Only you can reach me Only you can reach me
Only you can reach me Only you can reach me

When I’m needing love I just look for love
I can find it anywhere
But the kind of love that I’m thinking of
Only you can take me there …..because

Only you can reach me Only you can reach me
Only you can reach me Only you can reach me

Though I’ve had the love of so many men
No one quenches my desire
But what you provide touches me inside
And it sets my soul on fire …. Because

Only you can reach me Only you can reach me
Only you can reach me Only you can reach me

Baby you have got it don’t you doubt it
Maybe I can learn to live without it
Butcha know I wantcha how about it
Love me like only you can…..because

Only you can reach me Only you can reach me
Only you can reach me Only you can reach me

Only you can…….. Only you can reach me
Only you can…….. Only you can reach me
Only you can…….. Only you can reach me
Only you can…….. Only you can reach me

Only you can reach me Only you can reach me
Only you can reach me Only you can reach me


Mr. Sunshine
Pamala Stanley and David Zippel Mr. Sunshine      Let your love shine all around me

Everything is gonna turn out fine

THAT’LL BE THE DAY
Pamala Stanley

When will I say surrender
The answers always the same
That’ll be the day your in my arms
That’ll be the day when you realize
Tha’ll be the day when you say you’re mine

Miles make up this distance
When do mountains fade away
That’ll be the day your in my arms
That’ll be the day when you realize
Tha’ll be the day when you say you’re mine

People may say I’m half crazy
To fall in love with you
But I’m not wasting your time
Cause I know that you’ll find that you
Really …..Do…Love  Me

That’ll be the day your in my arms
That’ll be the day when you realize
Tha’ll be the day when you say you’re mine
