about

Love songs, breakup songs, and even a lust song, all set in pop styles ranging from Motown through electronic dance flavors through modern, hip-hop-flavored pop for lovers, former lovers, and those who would like to be lovers.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rick Paul's third full-length album, "In and Out of Love Again" goes down a decidedly pop-flavored road while exploring topics including falling in love, falling out of love, breaking up, commitment, and even lust. The recordings span a period from 2000 to 2016, with songs written between the early 1980s and 2015, yet the album sits comfortably alongside modern pop music. Adventurous production provides plenty of ear candy to be discovered across multiple listening sessions.

Songs include:

In and Out of Love Again (Rick Paul) - She's gone. She's back. She's gone again. She'll probably be back again. How do you deal with the emotions of an on-again/off-again relationship?

Just a Little Kiss (Rick Paul) - You've had a great date, and now it's time to say goodnight. Should you play it cool or go for the goodnight kiss?

Here I Go Again (Rick Paul) - She's guaranteed to be your next heartache, but you can't help falling for her anyway.

Don't Blame Me (AGATA, Rick Paul) - Sometimes there is just no explanation for why feelings change, so it doesn't make sense to play the blame game.

One Good Reason (Rick Paul) - You want so bad for the relationship to work, but does she? If she'd only give some sign...

Can't Make Love With Your Memory (Ray Ducharme, Vic Michener, Rick Paul) - It's hard moving on after losing love, but at some point reality makes it a necessity.

Lust (Rick Paul) - Lust and love might seem similar, but they're not the same thing.

That Kiss (Laban Johnson, Rick Paul) - How long do you hold on when she's just going through the motions?

What Do You Want to Know (Mary Lou Sudkamp, Rick Paul) - Why is it so hard for her to trust your commitment?

My One and Only (Rick Paul) - You may not be able to explain the chemistry, but there is no denying it, so you may as well surrender (and enjoy that surrender).

Love Holds On (Pop Mix) (Rebecca Hanneman, Rick Paul) - Fear lets go, but love holds on.

Waiting for You (Rick Paul) - You'll keep waiting for her until she figures out she's been waiting for you all along.

Track Name: In and Out of Love Again
In and Out of Love Again
words and Music by Rick Paul

I've been glaring at the TV screen, baby
Staring at the walls
Pacing, waiting for the phone to ring, baby
Waiting for your call
If it rings then I can tell you
That we're finally through
Or that I'm still in love with you

In and out of love again
That's the way it's always been with me
Up and down, to and fro
That's the way it always goes
Just wait and see
In and out of love again
That's the way it's always been with me

I've been feeling kind of low since you left me
Reeling from the pain
Grieving, needing to know why you left me
Needing you again
But we've gone as far as we go
That's one thing I know
So why can't I just let you go

In and out of love again
That's the way it's always been with me
Up and down, to and fro
That's the way it always goes
Just wait and see
In and out of love again
That's the way it's always been with me

You'll come back
You always do
You know it's true
But just once I want you to wonder
If I'll be waiting for you

In and out of love again
That's the way it's always been with me
Up and down, to and fro
That's the way it always goes
Just wait and see
In and out of love again
That's the way it's always been with me

Track Name: Just a Little Kiss
Just a Little Kiss
words and music by Rick Paul

I know this is goodnight, girl
And it's time for me to go
But it's so hard to leave when I look in your eyes
There's somethin' that I need to help me say goodbye

Just a little kiss, sweet baby
Is all I need from you, all I want
Just a little squeeze, sugar, sugar
Is all I need from you, all I want

Well, they say an eager man don't stand a chance
And I'll scare you away
I should cast a spell by walkin', not stand here talkin'
But I won't play those games

Just a little kiss, sweet baby
Is all I need from you, all I want
Just a little squeeze, sugar, sugar
Is all I need from you, all I want

If I have to stand on your steps in the cold night air
While some nosy neighbors stare
I'll stay up all night, I won't think twice
'Cause I know it's worth the price for…

Just a little kiss, sweet baby
Is all I need from you, all I want
Just a little squeeze, sugar, sugar
Is all I need from you, all I want

Girl, there's a fire that's burnin' in my heart
And I might just lose control
So don't fight the feelin's that you feel
Lay one on my lips, it's good for your soul

Just a little kiss, sweet baby
Is all I need from you, all I want
Just a little squeeze, sugar, sugar
Is all I need from you, all I want

Track Name: Here I Go Again
Here I Go Again
words and music by Rick Paul

Here I go, here I go again
Thinkin' with my heart and not my head
Should have known when she walked in
I'd soon be fallin'
And here I go, here I go again

Hey, who's that across the bar
I can see her sittin' in my car
Ridin' shotgun, her hand on my knee
With those angel eyes and long blonde hair
I just wanna be her teddy bear
I must be starin' 'cause she's all I can see
And...

Here I go, here I go again
Thinkin' with my heart and not my head
Should have known when she walked in
I'd soon be fallin'
And here I go, here I go again

Seems like I've been here before
Told myself, "no more!"
I should be lookin' the other way
But, damn, how can I resist
When I so wanna kiss her lips
Go ahead, bring on the heartache
'Cause...

Here I go, here I go again
Thinkin' with my heart and not my head
Should have known when she walked in
I'd soon be fallin'
And here I go, here I go again

When we're talkin'
I'm fallin'
But she's got no eyes for me
She's amazing
And I'm crazy
Plannin' futures that can never be

Here I go, here I go again
Thinkin' with my heart and not my head
Should have known when she walked in
I'd soon be fallin'
And here I go, here I go again
Here I go, here I go again
Here I go, here I go again

Track Name: Don't Blame Me
Don't Blame Me
words and music by AGATA and Rick Paul

It's not the same anymore
When I say I love you
They're only words I say
That I no longer feel
It's not the same
The love just isn't real

But don't blame me
I didn't mean to cause you pain
I never dreamed I'd drift away
It was so easy to believe
Loving you was all I needed
And I wanted it to be
Don't blame me

It's not the same anymore
I don't tremble when you kiss me
And I can see my tears
Reflecting in your eyes
Words can't explain
Why the fire dies

Don't blame me
I didn't mean to cause you pain
I never dreamed I'd drift away
It was so easy to believe
Loving you was all I needed
And I wanted it to be
Don't blame me

Why can't we just move on now
We don't need to know who's wrong and right
Let's not fight
Don't...

Don't blame me
I didn't mean to cause you pain
I never dreamed I'd drift away
It was so easy to believe
Loving you was all I needed
And I wanted it to be
Don't blame me
Don't blame me

Track Name: One Good Reason
One Good Reason
words and music by Rick Paul

Your head keeps turning
Every time I look in your eyes
Like I can't help but do
Could it be you're feeling
That the word I know I've got to say
Will break my heart in two
But I can't go on without some sign
Of what I mean to you

If I just had one good reason to stay here
A hundred reasons to go couldn't keep me away
I'd gladly give you a thousand lifetimes
If you'd give me one good reason
One good reason to stay

Perhaps I'm foolish
Leaving when I want to hold you
Every day and night
Maybe you're just nervous
'Cause I know that you've been hurt before
Baby, I'd treat you right
But I need some spark coming from you
Just a glimmer of light

If I just had one good reason to stay here
A hundred reasons to go couldn't keep me away
I'd gladly give you a thousand lifetimes
If you'd give me one good reason
One good reason to stay

Wish I could read your mind
Or hear what your heart is saying
Perhaps I'd find a reason for staying

If I just had one good reason to stay here
A hundred reasons to go couldn't keep me away
I'd gladly give you a thousand lifetimes
If you'd give me one good reason
One good reason to stay

Track Name: Can't Make Love With Your Memory
Can't Make Love With Your Memory
words and music by Ray Ducharme, Vic Michener, and Rick Paul

Last night I heard your laughter
On the sultry summer air
I almost turned around to look
But I just didn't dare
'Cause the way the shadows cheat my eyes
I knew I'd see you there

And I can't make love with your memory
I can't hold your shadow tight
The ghost of your love can't comfort me
And my dreams won't see me through this lonely night, oh no
No, I can't make love with your memory

So when I hear you calling
In the whisper of the trees
When I feel the wind caress my skin
Or your kiss on the breeze
I close my eyes like a child in the night
Hiding from fantasies

'Cause I can't make love with your memory
I can't hold your shadow tight
The ghost of your love can't comfort me
And my dreams won't see me through this lonely night, oh no
No, I can't make love with your memory

Your love made a prisoner of my heart
Your kisses left me scarred
It's so hard to miss you, and harder to start over
But I will, oh I will, yes I will

'Cause I can't make love with your memory
I can't hold your shadow tight
The ghost of your love can't comfort me
And my dreams won't see me through this lonely night, oh no
No, I can't make love with your memory
No, I can't make love with your memory

Track Name: That Kiss
That Kiss
words and music by Laban Johnson and Rick Paul

You've kissed me so many times
I know your moves by heart
But when I'm holding you close
Feels like we're worlds apart

Now there's nothing left to try
I can't read your mind
I'm out of tears to cry
So it's time to say goodbye

That kiss
Will be our last kiss
I don't feel it anymore
There's no passion
In your reaction
Where fire burned before
That kiss
Will be our last kiss

I don't know where we went wrong
I've searched around for clues
But I can't torture myself
I gave my soul to you

So it's time for you to go
I'll be all right alone
But first, please let me know
Are your tears real or for show?

That kiss
Will be our last kiss
I don't feel it anymore
There's no passion
In your reaction
Where fire burned before
That kiss
Will be our last kiss

Now there's nothing left to try
I can't read your mind
I'm out of tears to cry
So it's time to say goodbye

That kiss
Will be our last kiss
I don't feel it anymore
There's no passion
In your reaction
Where fire burned before
That kiss
Will be our last kiss

Track Name: What Do You Want to Know
What Do You Want to Know
words and music by Mary Lou Sudkamp and Rick Paul

What do you want to know
I see questions in your eyes
Ask whatever you want
There's nothin' for me to hide
Nothin' for me to hide
What do you want to know

Do you wonder if my sun shines when you smile
Does my heart beat wildly when you call my name
Will our photos show us old and gray together
Will our love endure if all the world should change
Baby, no need to guess
The answer's simply, "yes"

What do you want to know
I see questions in your eyes
Ask whatever you want
There's nothin' for me to hide
Nothin' for me to hide
What do you want to know

Are my prayers answered every time you hold me
Can I feel your presence in each breath I breathe
Do I tremble when your touch sets me on fire
Will you always be the manna my soul needs
Baby, if this is a test
The answers all are, "yes"

What do you want to know
I see questions in your eyes
Ask whatever you want
There's nothin' for me to hide
Nothin' for me to hide
What do you want to know

I'll tell you everything
My heart's an open book
Whenever you're unsure
Just take another look

What do you want to know
I see questions in your eyes
Ask whatever you want
There's nothin' for me to hide
Nothin' for me to hide
What do you want to know

Baby, I love you so
Is that what you want to know

Track Name: My One and Only
My One and Only
words and music by Rick Paul

There's gotta be some sweet chemistry
'Cause, girl, it's a total mystery
Why I react to you so helplessly
We tried for a while to just be friends
But it was destiny we'd end up more than friends
And look at us today

You are my one and only
I do believe I'll be forever
Head over heels for you and only you
My one and only
You are my one and only
I do believe I'll be forever
Head over heels for you and only you
My one and only

I wanna see you dressed in white
Wanna be standing by your side
While all your girls look on and your mama cries
And when the preacher says, “do you?”
I'm gonna tell him, “I sure do, oh, yes, I do”
'Cause what else could I say

You are my one and only
I do believe I'll be forever
Head over heels for you and only you
My one and only
You are my one and only
I do believe I'll be forever
Head over heels for you and only you
My one and only

We tried for a while to just be friends
But it was destiny we'd end up more than friends
And look at us today

You are my one and only
I do believe I'll be forever
Head over heels for you and only you
My one and only
You are my one and only
I do believe I'll be forever
Head over heels for you and only you
My one and only
My one and only

Track Name: Love Holds On (Pop Mix)
Love Holds On
words and music by Rebecca Hanneman and Rick Paul

Love's tender when it's young and when we're lucky
Lingers like a sweet kiss of desire
Blazing as our passions consume us
Rising from the ashes, love is fire

Fear like a phantom tries to chase us
And catch us when we're frail and all alone
We start to lose our grasp on what's important
Forget the thing that we have always known

Love holds on
Fear lets go
Love is steady, love is strong
Love holds on

We sleep under the blanket of commitment
We dream above the clouds of sweet romance
Moving past the sting of old rejections
We give our jaded hearts another chance

Love holds on
Fear lets go
Love is steady, love is strong
Love holds on

Love holds on
Fear lets go
Love is steady, love is strong
Love holds on
Love holds on

Track Name: Waiting for You
Waiting for You
words and music by Rick Paul

(Waiting for you, I've been waiting for you….)

Don't know how to tell you
What I've held here inside
For a lifetime
I wished you both well
Said friendship would survive
But, girl, I lied

Waiting for you
I've been waiting for you
For all of my life
Waiting for you
I'll be waiting for you
Until you finally see
You've been waiting for me

There was always something
That I couldn't say
At the right time
Then some guy would come
Your hero of the day
And you were swept away

Waiting for you
I've been waiting for you
For all of my life
Waiting for you
I'll be waiting for you
Until you finally see
You've been waiting for me

I've tried to lie to myself
And say you're not right for me
I've tried loving somebody else
But there's no other
Baby, can't you see

(Waiting for you, I've been waiting for you…)

Waiting for you
I've been waiting for you
For all of my life
Waiting for you
I'll be waiting for you
Until you finally see
You've been waiting for me…
For all of your life
Waiting for you
I'll be waiting for you
Until you finally see
You've been waiting for me
