    SUMMER SONG:

    Lets paint the town, take in some sounds and sing out loud
    Itís all about, the here and now, and what weíve found
    The places changed, along with the names, and while weíre the same
    Seen many days, where we can say, weíre glad we stayed

    So raise a glass today
    Letís wash the pain away
    And feel that sun light on your face
    A daydream comes alive
    Each day when you and I
    Feel that summer song coming to life

    Forget it all, lets have a ball, weíre far from fall
    Weíre they ten feet tall, or really small, I canít recall
    Soar to new heights, and take in the sights, it just feels right
    And then at night, those city lights, will paint the sky

    So raise a glass today
    Letís wash the pain away
    And feel that sun light on your face
    A daydream comes alive
    Each day when you and I
    Feel that summer song coming to life

    A memory made, will never fade, it's not up for trade
    So who needs the shade, itís time to play, cherish the day
    Live life with ease, and aim to please, and soon youíll be
    The one at peace, with that summer breeze, lying next to me

    So raise a glass today
    Letís wash the pain away
    And feel that sun light on your face
    A daydream comes alive
    Each day when you and I
    Feel that summer song coming to life

    Coming to life...

    REWIND:

    It's all the time, it's all the same
    But does it even matter
    It's just how we play the game
    Living wild or living free
    Just as long as I'm living
    Either way, it's fine by me

    You don't need a reason, just a little time to spend
    We can rewind to then
    And unwind again
    Just sit back, relax, and let the music be your friend
    We can rewind to then
    And unwind again

    Don't need a place, don't need a time
    To be wrapped up in the moment
    Just an urge to feel fine
    Living out your every dream
    But never stop dreamingL
    ife's exactly what it seems

    You don't need a reason, just a little time to spend
    We can rewind to then
    And unwind again
    Just sit back, relax, and let the music be your friend
    We can rewind to then
    And unwind again

    Any reason, anywhere
    For anyone willing
    To let the music take you there
    Living by your own beliefs
    With the ones who you believe in
    It's something we should all achieve

    You don't need a reason, just a little time to spend
    We can rewind to then
    And unwind again
    Just sit back, relax, and let the music be your friend
    We can rewind to then
    And unwind again

    A MATTER OF TIME:

    From the moment we both locked eyes
    There was no turning back from our disguise
    From the moment I was to weak get it right
    Was the moment I realized

    Surrender to the notions
    Give into the emotions...

    If I could freeze a moment in time
    And make it last forever
    Then it would a matter of time
    in this happy ever after

    From the moment we spoke our minds
    There was no turning back, no more goodbyes
    From the moment I was too weak to wonder why
    Was the moment I realized

    Surrender to the notions
    Give into the emotions...

    If I could freeze a moment in time
    And make it last forever
    Then it would a matter of time
    in this happy ever after

    From the moment we made that night
    There was no turning back, as others might
    From the moment I was too weak for alibis
    Was the moment I realized

    Surrender to the notions
    Give into the emotions...

    If I could freeze a moment in time
    And make it last forever
    Then it would a matter of time
    in this happy ever after

    If I could freeze a moment in time
    And make it last forever
    Then it would a matter of time
    in this happy ever after

    WAITING:

    If you are down if you are out just count me in
    I'll give my everything to be the one your with

    If you are lonely dial me up and I'll listen in
    I'll make the difference in your life Iíll understand

    I've been waiting for, I've been waiting for,
    I've been waiting for you...for you

    If you are ever feeling blue like no ones there

    If you need a helping hand
    I can be a stronger man
    I've been waiting for, I've been waiting for
    And if you are all alone
    I can be the one to hold
    I've been waiting for, I've been waiting for you
    I've been waiting for, I've been waiting for,
    I've been waiting for you...for you.

    MAKIN' ROUNDS:

    I've been down in Las Vegas
    Caught the fever, man it's contagious
    The highs and lows, the allure to go
    What happens there stays there, you already know
    I've been up and down the coast line
    And hell yeah, man It was a good time
    From Florida to Maine in a couple days
    A pit stop in Carolina just to lessen the haze

    I've been making rounds
    And right now I'm out about the town
    Sayin' all you need is to be here and to be loud
    I've been making rounds
    And don't you try to lounge around this crowd now
    Just get on up and party down

    I've been to backyard blowouts
    A Bonfire that could take the whole town out
    The band takes the stage, 'til the morning breaks
    And then you do it all again, cause it's another day
    Well I've been stranded on an island
    Drink in hand, the days fly by when
    You can soak it all in, before the day begins
    And then you spend your time wishin' it would never end

    I've been making rounds
    And right now I'm out about the town
    Sayin' all you need is to be here and to be loud
    I've been making rounds
    And don't you try to lounge around this crowd now
    Just get on up and party down

    I've been up to see the sunrise
    And closed out more places then I realize
    Would I do it all again, you bet 100 percent
    Unless there's yet another way to say it's time well spent
    Well I've been making up for lost time
    And each day's yet another friend of mine
    And no one can see where the road may lead
    I'll keep the roller coaster going if you're here with me

    I've been making rounds
    And right now I'm out about the town
    Sayin' all you need is to be here and to be loud
    I've been making rounds
    And don't you try to lounge around this crowd now
    Just get on up and party down

    Get on up and party down
    Get on up and party down

    ONCE AGAIN:

    I need a ticket to another place
    Something other then the same old space
    Some time to waste
    An escape to something better
    Who needs a reason when the timing's right
    Maybe a couple weeks or just a single night
    The future's bright
    In a place with something better

    And we lay in the sand
    Hours pass with our heads resting in our hands
    With some friends or your first romance
    Once can be once again

    Without escaping from the daily grind
    Can work its damage over lengths of time
    If I can find
    An escape to something better
    When it all builds up feels like you've lost the game
    But you can play again some other day
    Let it wash away
    In a place with something better

    And we lay in the sand
    Hours pass with our heads resting in our hands
    With some friends or your first romance
    Once can be once again

    It doesn't matter where you set things straight
    Just a release from yet another day
    Let us clear the haze
    An escape to something better
    Just try to take a moment for your own
    And drift away from what you've come to know
    You're not alone
    In a place with something better

    And we lay in the sand
    Hours pass with our heads resting in our hands
    With some friends or your first romance
    Once can be once again

    BEYOND THE GREY:

    It's when the clock strikes, and the timings right
    To make another perfect night
    If it's just a twist of fate, then it's all to waste
    No, don't let it end that way

    Although the clouds appear on your darkest days
    There's sunshine beyond the grey
    And while some rain may fall, not all's to waste
    There's sunshine beyond the grey

    If there's room to need beyond a jealous greed
    It could make you not believe
    But look past the fall, and you may recall
    There's a simple reason for it all

    Although the clouds appear on your darkest days
    There's sunshine beyond the grey
    And while some rain may fall, not all's to waste
    There's sunshine beyond the grey

    Although the clouds appear on your darkest days
    There's sunshine beyond the grey
    And while some rain may fall, not all's to waste
    There's sunshine beyond the grey

    SOMETIME, SOMEWAY:

    If you're feeling down at the end of the day
    Have you lost you place, when you skipped that page
    If the timings off, yet the reaction's the same
    It's when all seems lost that we find our way...

    We all head down the same highway
    Reading different lines while the pageís the same
    All of one mind, but yet so many names
    Sometime someway...

    Many people dwell on what could ruin their day
    No time to breathe, not knowing what to say
    If we took a chance to simply do what's right
    If we'd all let go, we could be one tonight

    We all head down the same highway
    Reading different lines while the pageís the same
    All of one mind, but yet so many names
    Sometime...

    If you're looking for just a simple escape
    Itís when you close your eyes and simply drift away
    Thereís no time to fight, and nothingís out of place
    It's when all seems lost that we find our way...

    We all head down the same highway
    Reading different lines while the pageís the same
    All of one mind, but yet so many names
    Sometime...
    We all head down the same highway
    Reading different lines while the pageís the same
    All of one mind, but yet so many names
    Sometime someway...

    LITERAL FICTION:

    Is life so cut and dry
    That we never wonder why
    Laced in lonely alibis
    The highest bidder wins the prize
    When you look beyond the names
    And you drift into a place
    Where lifeís a warm embrace
    A finish with some time to waste

    If we woke up all at once
    And we saw the damage done
    Can we fix what weíve become
    Or maybe Iím the only one?
    Maybe we can get things right
    Let the feelings pass us by
    What does it take to see the light
    When itís not pointed in your eyes

    This is my fictional time
    Content from within, having nothing to hide
    The sun shines as the days pass us by
    And if foreverís a dream, I want you there by my side

    This is my fictional time
    Content from within, having nothing to hide
    The sun shines as the days pass us by
    And If foreverís a dream, I want you there by my side

    LET'S GO:

    No need to wonder why I came here
    Maybe just to interfere, but I
    Saw you live by an endless trail of why's
    Now, I hope you don't mind me barging in but
    You need to get in gear my friend because T
    That midnight train will pass you by

    Long before the closing number or curtain call
    Long before the new beginning was the beginning of it all

    So let's go, let's get up out of here
    Make our future crystal clear because life's to short to sit around
    Let's go, let's get this one thing straight
    Yes we could sit here and wait but what we're searching for may never be found
    So letís go before we change our minds
    And letís make the most of tonight

    It's not as rough as it may seem
    Move along beyond your dreams as you
    Take a minute to take a look around
    Now, I hope it's ok to bring this up but
    Take the mundane and interrupt and just
    Set a course for broke and leave this town

    Long before the closing number or curtain call
    Long before the new beginning was the beginning of it all

    So let's go, let's get up out of here
    Make our future crystal clear because life's to short to sit around
    Let's go, let's get this one thing straight
    Yes we could sit here and wait but what we're searching for may never be found
    So letís go before we change our minds
    And letís make the most of the ride

    No need to wonder why I came here
    Another reason to interfere
    No one needs to live by an endless trial of why's
    With the gears in shift, when the day begins
    The one you wish would never end
    Thatís when that midnight train is right on time

    Long before the closing number or curtain call
    Long before the new beginning was the beginning of it all

    So let's go, let's get up out of here
    Make our future crystal clear because life's to short to sit around
    Let's go, let's get this one thing straight
    Yes we could sit here and wait but what we're searching for may never be found
    So letís go before we change our minds
    And letís make the most of our lives

    SOMETHING LIKE THAT:

    Since looking forward and looking back looks the same
    Like mental photographs we all took back in the day
    All different sceneries, ages and different times
    The future's as bright as then, and I'm glad my past is mine

    It's the something that takes me back to
    The memories I've yet to make

    Something like this, something like that
    Something like something or other, or something in fact
    Some things stay the same, and others need to change
    Did something go wrong, when something ain't right
    Something like something for nothing, or something to try
    Sometime, someplace, somehow, somewhere, someway
    Something like that...

    Our lives are telling, with so many different sides
    And like time has told us, just forget about the time
    The same lessons we have learned, stop us from learning more
    Forget about the Ďwhat happened when,í and embrace the Ďwhat's in storeí

    It's the something that takes me back to
    The memories I've yet to make

    Something like this, something like that
    Something like something or other, or something in fact
    Some things stay the same, and others need to change
    Did something go wrong, when something ain't right
    Something like something for nothing, or something to try
    Sometime, someplace, somehow, somewhere, someway
    Something like that...

    WISH YOU WELL:

    Another minute passed, another day goes by
    Seems the face of change is just a test of life
    It shouldn't hold you back, or let it seal your fate
    Beyond the darkest hour, is a brighter day

    So just forgive and simply turn the page (donít turn around now)
    What knocked us down before just makes us stronger today
    We'll rise above and find our way

    Through the looking glass, beyond the hopes and dreams
    What can blind you can heal you when you set it free
    Some have come and gone, and some have yet to arrive
    Until we meet again, isn't always goodbye

    So just forgive, and maybe shed some light (just shining on now)
    We can live for the moments with our heads held high
    The feeling could define our lives

    Well I wish you well where ever you may go
    When that path may lead you down an open road
    Well I wish you well around every turn
    But the truth be told I guess you live and you learn

    Well I wish you well where ever you may go
    When that path may lead you down an open road
    Well I wish you well around every turn
    But the truth be told I guess you live and you learn

    (But the truth be told, time marches on) I guess you live and you learn...

    IT'S ALRIGHT:

    Thank god it's Friday Night
    Turn the Radio up cause my favorite song's playing
    The week just seemed to fly
    It almost passed me by but you don't hear me complainin'

    Round up the weekend crowd
    Cause we're all headed out for some mindless entertainment
    Some time to water down
    Good friends getting loud when the music starts to sink in

    I love it when a song
    Invites the room along it just grabs from the onset
    You start to hum the words
    And by the second verse everyoneís gone and lost it

    We're living in the round
    Cause nothing beats a crowd singing along with the record
    And no one cares about
    How karaoke you sound when you're all singin' together

    There's no better time then tonight
    There's not a loner in a crowd this size
    Let it ride, baby it's alright
    No excuse will fly, not tonight
    So leave your ego in the lot outside
    Get amplified, baby it's alright

    So when the moment comes
    Take advantage of every word you're singing
    The music never ends
    Another song begins as the other oneís ending

    There's no better time then tonight
    There's not a loner in a crowd this size
    Let it ride, baby it's alright
    No excuse will fly, not tonight
    So leave your ego in the lot outside
    Get amplified, baby it's alright
    Let me tell you one time, baby itís alright

    Thank god it's Friday Night
    Turn the Radio up cause my favorite song's playing

    SWEPT AWAY:

    Here we are, me and you, Iíd be lost without it
    I love you baby and Iím never gonna give you up
    I submit, you got me hooked, couldnít live without you
    Cause life is better when you share it with the one you love

    Oh yeah...when we're together Iím speechless, what can I say?
    From the moment that I met you, I knew my search was through
    Cause baby you swept me away

    Anytime, anyplace, I would wait forever
    The way I feel about you doesn't happen every day
    Youíve got the eyes, and the lips, to put a spell upon me
    Youíre all I need to know that life will never be the same

    Oh yeah...when we're together Iím speechless, what can I say?
    From the moment that I met you, I knew my search was through
    Cause baby you swept me away

    Maybe I could write about it
    Or sing all night about it
    But rest assured Iíll find a way to tell the world about it

    So here we are, hand in hand, it doesnít get much better
    I canít imagine life without you here by my side
    Iím taken back, every time, that youíre here around me
    So just remember that my love for you will never die

    Oh yeah...when we're together Iím speechless, what can I say?
    From the moment that I met you, I knew my search was through
    Cause baby you swept me away

    Oh yeahÖcause baby you swept me away

    YOU MIGHT THINK:

    You might think Iím crazy to hang around with you
    Or maybe you think Iím lucky to have something to do
    But I think that youíre wild inside me is some child

    You might think Iím foolish or maybe itís untrue
    You might think Iím crazy but all I want is you

    You might think itís hysterical but I know when youíre weak
    You think youíre in the movies and everythingís so deep
    But I think that youíre wild, When you flash that fragile smile

    You might think itís foolish what ya put me through
    You might think Iím crazy but all I want is you

    And it was hard so hard to take
    Thereís no escape without a scrape
    But you kept it going till the sun fell down
    You kept it going

    You might think Iím delirious the way I run you down
    But somewhere sometime when youíre curious Ill be back around
    Oh I think that youíre wild and so uniquely styled

    You might think its foolish this chancy rendezvous
    You might think Iím crazy but all I want is you

    All I want is you
    All I want is you

    PROMISES:

    I know you're thinking what did he do
    But I kept my word and wrote a song for you
    That's right, here it is, enjoy this little tune
    Now you can tell everyone this songís for you
    The words are vague but the meanings true
    Should've known I would, consider this coming through

    The only thing that's ever been written for me
    Were bills to pay, directions to read
    But now you have a whole song written for you
    And I have one less thing to do

    I'm keeping promises
    Making good on what I said
    I'm keeping promises to you
    That's right I'm keeping promises
    A man of my word and now out of debt
    I'm keeping promises to you

    I know you're thinking what did he do
    But I kept my word and wrote a song for you
    That's right, here it is, enjoy this little tune

    A man of my word and now out of debt
    I'm keeping promises to you
    I'm keeping promises to you
    That being said, I bid you adieu

    HERE WE ARE:

    When I look into your eyes, I know things are gonna be OK
    You know a smile like that can wash all the rain away
    You're my other half, my better half, my missing piece
    And on a stressful day a little sigh of relief
    Iím still thankful that my life turned out this way

    Here we are and here we'll be
    Just the sun and sand and the feel of a cooling breeze
    Let's drift away
    Just you and me and the memories that we've made
    One Summer Day

    We can travel to New England where it's been known to snow in May
    Or to the sunniest beach in California on Christmas Day
    We can try our luck in Vegas, where the odds are none
    But with you here right by my side, it's like I've already won
    Iím here waiting, so just name the time and place

    Here we are and here we'll be
    Just the sun and sand and the feel of a cooling breeze
    Let's drift away
    Just you and me and the memories that we've made
    One Summer Day

    It took me time to find you, but I'm glad that it happened that way
    If I did it all again, you can bet it'd play out the same
    As the days pass us by, how our love has grown
    And the future seems as bright as our past has shown
    Iíll regret it never cause forever's been worth the wait

    Here we are and here we'll be
    Just the sun and sand and the feel of a cooling breeze
    Let's drift away
    Just you and me and the memories that we've made
    One Summer Day

    TIME MARCHES ON:

    I've taken chances and I've crossed the line
    Been through the ringer and continued to fight
    I've been down and out
    I've been kicked around
    But yet through all of it I've stood my ground

    The truth will set things right
    And the fallen will rise
    No more good-byes, just look deep into my eyes
    It will come in time

    I've been the loner and I've been the lead
    Been the one who's helping and the one in need
    I've had my doubts
    Of what life's about
    But in the end I've come to figure out

    The truth will set things right
    And the fallen will rise
    No more good-byes, just look deep into my eyes
    It will come in time

    Keep on fighting, stand united
    Time keeps marching on
    Once ignited, itíll keep on rising
    Time keeps marching

    I've kicked a habit and it kicked me back
    I've seen the truth in those who never have
    I've been off the tracks
    And now looking back
    I'm stronger now then if I never had

    The truth will set things right
    And the fallen will rise
    No more good-byes, just look deep into my eyes
    It will come in time

    In time
    In time...

    ONCE UPON A TIME:


    I'm speechless tonight
    For once in my life
    Everything seems right
    Words'll never say
    What you mean to me
    No matter how I try

    Cause once upon a time
    I saw the world through those big blue eyes
    Your smile brought me to life
    The love I feel inside for my
    Once upon a time

    Nothing I could write
    Could ever quite describe
    What I feel inside
    And nothing I could sing
    Would ever truly bring
    This love alive

    Cause once upon a time
    I saw the world through those big blue eyes
    Your smile brought me to life
    The love I feel inside for my
    Once upon a time

    You're everything
    And more to me
    And you'll always be
    My guiding light
    The star so bright
    The whole world can see

    That once upon a time
    I saw the world through those big blue eyes
    Your smile brought me to life
    The love I feel inside for my once upon a time
    Something so simple and yet so right
    Cause my angel has arrived
    The love I feel inside for my
    Once upon a time

    I'm speechless tonight
    For once in my life
    Everything seems right

    LONELY ROAD:

    Sometimes beginnings
    Never seem to end
    Yet the finish line draws near
    The path we're taking
    Can circle many times
    The endless trial we fear

    On the crowded streets you roam
    Not every turn will lead you home
    One in a million but not alone
    Headed down that lonely road

    Some tend to wander
    When they've lost their way
    Another shawdow in the night
    Different directions
    All seem out of place
    Until you find your guiding light

    On the crowded streets you roam
    Not every turn will lead you home
    One in a million but not alone
    Headed down that lonely

    There's one way in, and no way out
    Sometimes the fear can bring you down
    But you're not alone
    I'm by your side, day and night
    One more that we can both survive
    Down this lonely road

    It takes believing
    That you can learn to fly
    Even when you've lost your wings
    Sometimes beginnings
    Never need to end
    Once you've embraced the feeling

    On the crowded streets you roam
    Not every turn will lead you home
    One in a million but not alone
    Headed down that lonely road
    On the crowded streets you roam
    Not every turn will lead you home
    One in a million but not alone
    Headed down that lonely road

    LIFE HAPPENS:


    It's working to the bone five days a week
    Never getting a break, or some needed relief
    But money talks, and so I'll be back in the morning
    It's spending both days off doing household chores
    Waiting in endless lines at the grocery store
    Then Monday comes, and you're back doing circles again

    It's the same old life and a different day
    And when life hits the fan, it's probably time for a break because
    Life happens, and we're put on this earth to deal with it
    Friday Night's the relief from taking life all week
    And your friend's so full of life, it's simply hard to believe just think
    Life happens weather or not we planned for it
    So try to smile when
    Life happens again

    It's the car breaking down on the side of the road
    So that money you saved is now the money you owe
    You realized, you probably should've kept that AAA
    It's the house on the beach for the summer time
    A brand new mazarati down on rodeo drive
    It could happen, maybe if I won the lottery

    It's the same old life and a different day
    And when life hits the fan, it's probably time for a break because
    Life happens, and we're put on this earth to deal with it
    Friday Night's the relief from taking life all week
    And your friend's so full of life, it's simply hard to believe just think
    Life happens weather or not we planned for it
    So try to smile when
    Life happens again

    Iíve been told to get my life together
    Because I donít know life
    But Iíve been dealt this life before
    And Iím doiní just fineÖAlright!

    It's an outdoor concert in the pouring rain
    It's your team getting routed in a rivalry game
    And so it goes, there's not much we can do about it
    Cause it's the little things in life, that never seem to go right
    Like when the dog mistakes the kitchen for his spot outside
    I get it now, I can't let this life get the best of me

    It's the same old life and a different day
    And when life hits the fan, it's probably time for a break because
    Life happens, and we're put on this earth to deal with it
    Friday Night's the relief from taking life all week
    And your friend's so full of life, it's simply hard to believe just think
    Life happens weather or not we planned for it
    So try to smile when
    Life happens again

    BRAND NEW DAY:


    Everyday seems the same
    From the first alarm ring
    Until ya crawl back into bed
    As the grind takes effect
    You can safely place a bet
    that the complaining never ends

    You need to let it go and just let it lie
    It's now or never, cause forever's gonna be alright

    You think the day'll never end
    The rats are racing once again
    And then you're sunk into the fold
    Watch the minutes slowly pass
    Each hour's feelin' like the last
    It's time to put this thing on hold

    You need to let it go and just let it lie
    It's now or never, cause forever's gonna be alright

    Why don't you take it in stride
    One step at a time
    In the end it's worth the wait
    So simply open your eyes to a brand new day
    Just take a chance on life
    Before it passes you by
    Right now is never too late
    So simply open your eyes to a brand new day

    You treat each moment in your life
    As one you're fighting to survive
    But could you try another pace
    You wish the week would finally end
    But soon another one begins
    As you just wish your life away

    You need to let it go and just let it lie
    It's now or never, cause forever's gonna be alright

    Why don't you take it in stride
    One step at a time
    In the end it's worth the wait
    So simply open your eyes to a brand new day
    Just take a chance on life
    Before it passes you by
    Right now is never too late
    So simply open your eyes to a brand new day

    BELIEVE:


    Every move that I make
    Is the one that could make a change
    Or do nothing at all
    Every chance is a risk
    That I'm willing to make
    Even though I may fall

    And now, somehow
    I'm alone once again, but I'm standing my ground
    Head on, forgone
    I'm one in a million, but a million strong and...

    For those who may have fallen
    For those who've lost their way
    For those who feel forgotten
    For those strong enough to believe (who believe)

    Every urge is curve
    That can you lead to an answer
    Or to another turn
    Every line is a guide
    On the path I'm taken
    Which could be better or worse

    And now, somehow
    I'm the one called upon for each and every bout
    And what's best of what's left
    Above and beyond those who've failed the test and...

    For those who may have fallen
    For those who've lost their way
    For those who feel forgotten
    For those strong enough to believe (who believe)

    Every risk is a gift
    That could write a perfect ending
    Or leave you searching for words
    And every one has a way
    That they would've done it better
    Or so they say

    And now, somehow
    I'm the one who remains in the closing round and
    Through it all, I've fought
    To be the last man standing for the final call and...

    For those who may have fallen
    For those who've lost their way
    For those who feel forgotten
    For those strong enough to believe (who believe)

    REMEMBER WHEN:


    Those thousand words' this picture holds
    Could never quite explain
    All the fun we had that day
    The score never really mattered
    And we may have lost the game
    But we were winners all the same

    Goin' down that road again
    With those I never will forget
    Greeting me again with I remember when
    Think back how we used to play
    As our children do today
    Makin' memories that they'll remember when...

    How about that time we spent that
    Summer down the shore
    We probably made our parent's poor
    But that endless sun, and summer nights
    Ocean breeze and boardwalk lights
    Kept us comin' back for more

    Goin' down that road again
    With those I never would forget
    Greeting me again with I remember when
    Think back how we used to play
    As our children do today
    Makin' memories that they'll remember when...

    It seems like yesterday
    Yet still so far away
    And nothing much has changed
    We're the same ol' kids we were
    Albeit a little grey,
    And we're the one's who're sayin' "when I was your age..."

    From little league to little ones
    An ocean breeze to a diaper run
    And there is nothing I would change
    Those thousand words' a picture holds
    Are the memories that they'll unfold
    From the ones we took today

    Goin' down that road again
    With those I never would forget
    Greeting me again with I remember when
    Think back how we used to play
    As our children do today
    Makin' memories that they'll remember when

    YER SO BAD:

    My sister got lucky, married a yuppie
    Took him for all he was worth
    Now she's a swinger dating a singer
    I can decide which is worse

    But not me, baby
    I've got you to save me
    Aw, yer so bad
    Best thing I've ever had
    In a world gone mad
    Yer so bad

    My sisters ex-husband cant get no lovin'
    Walks around dog-faced and hurt
    Now he's got nothin, head in the oven
    I cant decide which is worse

    But not me, baby
    I've got you to save me
    Aw, yer so bad
    Best thing I've ever had
    In a worl d gone mad
    Yer so bad

    MY EVERYTHING:

    The one thatís meant to be

    Each and every night
    When I see those eyes
    I fall deeper in love
    It's like the first time that we touched
    And I'm still hypnotized

    It warms me deep within
    When I hold you closer
    Just say those little words
    And I'll be yours forever

    MOVIN' ON:


    Late at night, he's wandering the streets that he calls home
    He's got things to do, but nowhere left to go
    He was always one to do what he could in terms of help
    But he couldn't even find that for himself

    He's lived here for so long, he's just another friendly face
    Yet no one 'round here even knew his name
    Maybe it was fate, when we met that summer day
    Cause he was more then just a drunk begging for change

    He said, he was waiting for an answer
    To the question he'd been asking for so long
    He let go, and he found what he was looking for
    Deep inside, waiting all along
    And now he's movin' on

    She was barely seventeen, and a new mother to be
    Was she ready for responsibility?
    How was she supposed to raise this child all by herself?
    And who could she turn to when she needed help?

    Those who've turned their back, and those who simple walked away
    Supposedly friends for life, weren't there this day
    She let worrying consumer her 'til the day her child arrived
    Then it all made sense within' her baby's eyes

    She said, she was waiting for an answer
    To the question she'd been asking for so long
    She let go, and she found what she was looking for
    Deep inside, waiting all along
    And now she's movin' on

    Partied hard in college and tried to keep that frame of mind
    10 years later and still wasted all the time
    His friend's have all moved on 'cept for the bottle by his side
    Tries to relive moments that have long since died

    His job is just a way to find a means to fuel the fire
    As his body aches to stop this way of live
    He knew the time to walk away, even that late in the game
    To reclaim the life he almost left astray

    He said, he was waiting for an answer
    To the question he'd been asking for so long
    He let go, and he found what he was looking for
    Deep inside, waiting all along
    And now he's movin' on

    They said, they were waiting for an answer
    To the question theyíve been asking for so long
    They let go, and they found what they were looking for
    Deep inside, waiting all along
    And now they're movin' on

    SUNDAY MORNING:


    The night was never ending
    Did I ever get to bed?
    The pounding on the bar is now
    the pounding in my head (oh yeah)
    I know that something ain't right
    You can keep your Sunday morning
    Just give me Saturday night

    I felt like I was 21
    And acted 2 or 3
    It never hurt this bad
    The years are catching up to me (oh yeah)
    I know that something ain't right
    You can keep your Sunday morning
    Just give me Saturday night

    Take me back

    Before it all began I wished
    the night would never end
    Now an end would seem forgiving
    But that's probably not the plan (oh yeah)
    I know that something ain't right
    You can keep your Sunday morning
    Just give me Saturday night

    Now I could curse my age or
    even blame the lack of sleep
    But I can't imagine speaking
    if it hurts to much to think (oh yeah)
    I know that something ain't right
    You can keep your Sunday morning
    Just give me Saturday night

    Take me home

    SACRED SOUNDS:



    Turn it on, tune it in and then turn it up
    'Cause if I hear this song a million times
    It still wouldn't be enough
    And so I wait, through all the endless commercial breaks
    My patience should be rewarded with a solitary play
    Hey DJ, listen up, there's a caller on line 8
    Please play this song one time tonight
    And this'll all be worth the wait
    And then it comes, the mindless talk up's almost done
    Here it is, the top 5 at 9, coming in at number 1

    (Yeah, turn it up)
    These are sacred sounds
    Let's strike a chord
    That never lets us down
    (That's what I said)
    You hear me coming from a mile away
    So let your voice be heard each and every day
    And take my blues away
    These sacred sounds

    What's this? Oh can it be? A brand new 45
    That song you know from the radio
    Plus another on the other side
    The needle's poised, words can't describe the vinyl noise
    And when the music starts to play it's time to revel in the joy
    All the records that soon became my musical degree
    Getting lost in every cover art just staring back at me
    The lineup's made, all further requests will have to wait
    The next hour's brought to you by this here 8 year old DJ

    (Yeah, turn it up)
    These are sacred sounds
    Let's strike a chord
    That never lets us down
    (That's what I said)
    You hear me coming from a mile away
    So let your voice be heard each and every day
    And take my blues away
    These sacred sounds
    (Yeah, turn it up)
    These are sacred sounds
    Let's strike a chord
    That never lets us down
    (That's what I said)
    A man preaching to the choir again
    So put the needle down and let the record spin
    Sit back, relax, and let the music be your friend
    These sacred sounds

    Browsing up and down for the ones you wont forget
    Every hour I spent in research for that classic mixed cassette
    Each song hand picked, one-by-one I'd write 'em in
    And keep and eraser handy in case the last one didn't fit
    Maybe all I'm saying's that I might have shown my age
    It really doesn't matter just how much the times have changed
    First came CD's, and then a playlist with mp3s
    Who cares how you're listening, the music aims to please

    (Yeah, turn it up)
    These are sacred sounds
    Let's strike a chord
    That never lets us down
    (That's what I said)
    You hear me coming from a mile away
    So let your voice be heard each and every day
    And take my blues away
    (That's what I said)
    A man preaching to the choir again
    So put the needle down and let the record spin
    Sit back, relax, and let the music be your friend
    (Be your friend)
    Let's all ensure that the music never ends...never ends

    SIMPLE:

    Another night another dream
    Letting go is all you need
    And just like that we're up to speed
    It's simple...

    Takin' in the sights and sounds
    Just a chance to look around
    Pretty soon we're off the ground
    It's simple...

    Give me the sun and a summer breeze
    And you lying next to me
    That's all that I'll ever need
    We'll lose track of time
    Living in the moment you and I
    So simple that I never thought it'd fly

    The sunlight bouncing off your hair
    You can smell the ocean in the air
    Just another memory we've shared
    It's simple...

    Give me the sun and a summer breeze
    And you lying next to me
    That's all that I'll ever need
    We'll lose track of time
    Living in the moment you and I
    So simple that I never thought it'd fly

    Fly high for a single day
    No place that I'd rather be
    Close your eyes and drift away
    I'll go back there someday

    Give me the sun and a summer breeze
    And you lying next to me
    That's all that I'll ever need
    We'll lose track of time
    Living in the moment you and I
    So simple that I never thought it'd fly

    You want to steal that moment back
    The one you never thought you'd have
    That's life inside a photograph
    So simple...

    THE OTHER SIDE OF YOU:

    I think daydreamers had something right
    As the window offers subtle invites
    To the outside, it's no wonder I
    Can't wait to leave
    It seems a faster pace is all they'll buy
    Running in circles, just to fall behind
    No reason life should be a fight
    For a little relief

    Cause it's happening right now
    The sun that's shining down
    The music that you're singing
    The friends who've stuck around
    It's the little things in life
    That make it all worth wild
    No one may be perfect
    And that's perfectly alright

    Now only you can choose
    So what are you out to prove,
    With nothing left to lose
    Don't cling to an excuse
    To live a life renewed
    On the other side of you

    It's hard to argue with the world outside
    Telling a story from its every sight
    I'm hypnotized, and that's alright
    Just fine by me
    There's much to learn from those who deal in stride
    The in's and out's are just a part of life
    So let it slide, and that should provide
    Just what you need

    Cause it's happening right now
    So lay your burden down
    Get back in the moment
    And spread some love around
    It's another chance to live
    The one we could forgive
    Life can only be as dark as
    The light that we're bringing in

    Now only you can choose
    So what are you out to prove,
    With nothing left to lose
    Don't cling to an excuse
    To live a life renewed
    On the other side of you

    Cause it's happening right now
    The sun that's shining down
    The music that you're singing
    The friends who've stuck around
    It's the little things in life
    That make it all worth wild
    No one may be perfect
    And that's perfectly alright

    Now only you can choose
    So what are you out to prove,
    With nothing left to lose
    Don't cling to an excuse
    To live a life renewed
    On the other side of you

    I think daydreamers had something right
    As the window offers subtle invites
    To the outside, it's no wonder I
    Can't wait to leave…

    BETTER DAYS:

    Here we are again
    The leaves have turned and the temperature's given in
    The nights are cold and shorter days are irrelevent
    All I need's a little sunshine
    To light the darkness in my life
    Take me to that place in time
    Where we could leave it all behind

    It's time for some relief
    The blues'll never color me
    It'll roll off and wash away
    You're invited to join this little masquerade

    Livin' for the ride no matter where it goes
    A life so high, you're never feeling low
    You've earned your part in this getaway
    Turn the music up, and tune the drama out
    There's no better place then here and now
    You've built your ship, time to sail away
    Let's escape, back to better days

    Another day is dawn
    The ice is thick and the snow keeps comin' down
    No one knows how much longer this'll stick around
    All I need's a little sunshine
    Let's pass around some summer vibes
    Take me to that place in time
    Where we could leave it all behind

    It's time for some relief
    The blues'll never color me
    It'll roll off and wash away
    You're invited to join this little masquerade

    Livin' for the ride no matter where it goes
    A life so high, you're never feeling low
    You've earned your part in this getaway
    Turn the music up, and tune the drama out
    There's no better place then here and now
    You've built your ship, time to sail away
    Let's escape, back to better days

    ENJOY THE RIDE:

    Already behind before you start your day
    Run around in circles, just to circle back again
    A racing mind, moving forward taking two steps back
    Headed both directions on a one-way track
    You're giving up or else you're giving in

    You wave surrender flags and throw your hands in the air
    But they don't care
    So when it's quitting time, it's best to leave it there
    Cause we're so glad you're here

    Just kickin' back with...a cold one, and the friends I've known forever
    Not a care to deal with...just the music turned up loud - let the good vibes in

    Just let it slide, let it go, as we pass the time
    Living every moment that this life provides
    We'll be the one taking every little thing in stride
    Enjoy the ride

    The list keeps growing and your patience wears
    You can't finish one thing, cause there's always something else
    Full speed ahead, the big wheel keeps spinnin' 'round
    So hold on tight & keep 'yer feet on the ground
    As you cling to a dream of up and leavin' there

    It could seem like everyone's gone their separate ways
    When it rains, it pours - then every little thing is out of place
    It can knock you down when everything's gone awry
    Just pick it up and sigh
    Cause it'll be just fine...

    Moving forward taking two steps back
    But now the night is young so let's forget the past
    The big wheel keeps spinnin' 'round
    So then we'll turn it up and then paint the town
    Just let it slide as we pass the time
    Living every moment that this life provides
    Enjoy the ride you're by my side
    We'll be the ones taking every thing in stride

    PERFECTED IMPERFECTIONS:

    Where do we go from here
    The winding road of thirty-something years
    With all it takes just to stand in place
    And I can't recall
    Not a story truth be told
    A recollection of the ones you know
    A familiar face I can't seem to place it
    Without a hint to draw upon

    Too many too recall – perfected imperfections
    They're with you for the haul – perfected imperfections
    We all've got one to solve – perfected imperfections
    A perfect one-for-all

    I don't remember back in 7th grade
    Hell remind me what I did today
    The past can stay where it's supposed to be
    And I'll keep moving' on
    And yes every rejection is
    A open door to what comes of it
    A broken heart is a brand new start when
    There's no more right then there is wrong

    Too many too recall – perfected imperfections
    They're with you for the haul – perfected imperfections
    We all've got one to solve – perfected imperfections
    A perfect one-for-all

    Don't ever look back
    Never regret
    Some you forgive and some you forget
    Time can heal
    But don't spend eternity counting
    You can waste or embrace it
    But either way you're gonna have to face it
    Every turn
    Brings another direction

    And now you're bringing up our senior year
    When this morning ain't so crystal clear
    When yesterday's still a foggy haze
    Then high school's all but lost
    I'm not the person that I was back then
    I've lived and learned a lot in retrospect
    I'm running late but it's been great man
    Until the next time our path's cross

    Too many too recall – perfected imperfections
    They're with you for the haul – perfected imperfections
    We all've got one to solve – perfected imperfections
    A perfect one-for-all

    Don't ever look back
    Never regret
    Some you forgive and some you forget
    Time can heal
    But don't spend eternity counting
    You can waste or embrace it
    But either way you're gonna have to face it
    Every turn
    Brings another direction - perfected imperfections
