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 © 2011, 2016 Closet Cowboy Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved

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 © 2010, 2016 Closet Cowboy Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved

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 © 2015, 2016 Closet Cowboy Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved

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 © 2000, 2002 Closet Cowboy Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved

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 © 1997, 2016 Raymond F.

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 © 2007, 2016 Laban R.

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 © 2006, 2016 Mary Lou Sudkamp (BMI)/Closet Cowboy Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved

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 © 2011, 2016 Closet Cowboy Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved

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 © 1997, 2009 Rebecca Hanneman/Closet Cowboy Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved

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 © 2001, 2016 Closet Cowboy Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved

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.
