Will You? (circa October 1990)

Will you still love meEven though I don’t know what I want?Will you still need meAnd never give it another thought?Will you wrap your arms around meAnd forget all your worries and woes?Will you remember who stuck by you,Who tried to stay so close?

Break the Barrier (circa June 1990)

The contents …
