Track Name: We Still Remain The Same
It's summer's last call,
So bring in the fall,
Yet with seasons change,
We still remain the same.

The flowers lay to rest,
As green turns to red,
The leaves may change,
But we still remain the same.

Fixed like stars in the sky,
Just you and I,
Together 'til the end of time.

Well the days turn into nights
And darkness returns to light.
Time it may change,
But we still remain the same.

Fixed like stars in the sky,
Just you and I,
Together 'til the end of time.

Well the days turn into nights
And darkness returns to light.
Time it may change,
But we still remain the same.

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah we still remain the same.
Track Name: The Game
I wanna see you smile,
Just a little taste of your style.
I can make it worth your while,
If I got a little message from you.

Boy you know I dig this scene,
But I'm not sure which way you lean.
I don't care for fancy things, no,
But I'm not sure what I'm looking for.

Chorus:
Why does it feel like I'm missing you?
When you're new to my heart
And you haven't got a clue.
Where do you stand in this situation?
Why does it feel like the game is done?

Come on baby give me a sign.
Your looks have got me out of my mind,
And this void is spelled out every time.
Inside my heart I feel like a fool.

Chorus

I'm at a loss to decid
That love isn't something I hide.
If only I knew what I'm feeling is true
Then maybe you'd come by my side.
I'm ready to take up the lead.
An answer is all that I need.
Just open your amrs,
I'll protect you from harm,
Just show your heart to me.
Oh yeah.

Chorus 2x
Track Name: Here I Am
Wipe this paint from my face,
I am done with this masquerade.
No more hiding what is real inside,
I am through with this charade.

Chorus:
So here I am
I'm alright.
I'm not perfect, no
And I put up a hell of a fight.
Here I am
And I'm just fine.
I'm not better than you
And knowing that,
Gives me peace of mind.
Oh yeah.

I'm talking down
These walls of mine.
Built from outside view
That finds way in.
With it goes a narrow mind
Well now a new thought can begin.

Chorus

Was so blinded by the light
That had shown on me, oh.
So consumed by what was right
That I could now see, oh.

Chorus
Track Name: Don't Ever Go
Don't look at me that way,
And don't hold me like you do.
And please,
Don't make me feel so safe
Whenever I'm near you.
Don't put my mind at ease
Or make me laugh but please,
Don't ever go.
Don't ever go, oh no.

Don't visit me in dreams,
And don't linger on my mind.
And please,
Don't tell me such sweet things
Because it makes me smile.
And never get to close to me
Or say that you love me so but please,
Don't ever go.
Don't ever go.

And leave me here,
Here all alone.
Track Name: Now is the Time
I used to feel so low
For reasons I did not know.
I screamed out loud to help me
Let go of this loneliness.

For years it seemed I tried
To fill the void inside.
Who understands where we go
When we need our spirits whole?

Chorus:
Now is the time to make things right,
Groove with the sounds
And clear your mind.
Out with the bad
And in with the good.
Free us from ourselves,
Now don't you think we should?

Reflecting back I see
Consumed by negativity.
The answers clear to me
Unlock the chains and we'll fly high.

Jumped out into the light
Darkness no longer felt right.
I now hold firmly to
The love you give comes backs to you.

Chorus

Let love into your life
Fill your heart with it's light.
No more sadness inside, no, no.
Let us take off and fly.

Chorus 2x
Track Name: 'Til Love is Here
I see the sun shining
Through these lies that the people are sold.
Oh how sad that we live in ignorance,
It's hard to believe
All these things we withstand.
Looking at the problem before us,
Something makes me ask
Why we've seen this before.
Too many hopes were taken and shattered.
Now the clouds have come
Covering all with it's fear.

Chorus:
Shed no tears
'Cause I feel the end is near
And I'll join the choir for peace
'Til love is here.
Oh, oh.
2x

Open your eyes to your brothers
Don't you see how our mothers cry?
Whoever said that more violence would save us?
How do we love with warm bullets in hand?
Someday love will restore us.
Turn off the news and grab ahold of my hand.
We must teach all the children before us.
Empower their minds
And relieve them from fear.

Chorus

Oh, oh, oh.

Imagine a better way
No more hurt and no more pain.
Imagine a better day
A kind of day that'll make you say
"Isn't Life Lovely?"
Imagine a better dream
Like the one from Martin Luther King.
Imagine John Lennon's song
And the people finally gettin' along.
Imagine and realize your dreams
Make a change for all to see.
Imagine how we could be
If peace grew stronger.

Someday love will restore us.
Turn off the news and grab ahold of my hand.
We must teach all the children before us.
Empower their minds
And relieve them from fear.

Chorus 2x
Track Name: Riding on a Breeze
I've been riding on a breeze
Since I left the willow tree.
I closed my eyes and let go
To find the ability to see.

What a strange trip it's been
I've almost been to heaven.
I stopped on clouds
And back down again
I wonder if it will end.

Interlude:
Well it's been some years
With the ups and downs
And a few times it ceased
And I hit the ground.

Chorus:
I feel out of control
As I'm tossed in the air.
I've been thrown all around
But this journey has no care.
I feel pushed as I'm pulled
And I'm stretched everywhere.
I've been here all alone
But this journey has no care.

I find myself wishing at times
That this breeze would lift me high.
Carry me straight to the stars
Where forever I'll be in the sky.

Chorus 2x
Track Name: Get On that Train
Here I am
Feelin' this way,
Just a little bit drained.
And all I wanna do
Is get on that train.

Sometimes
You just need to get away
And break the chain.
So I'll pick up
And get on that train.

Chorus:
And feel the sun's red glow
On your face;
Soak in its grace.
And those blue pines
That frame the sky;
It makes you feel alive.
'Til I realize
That I'm on my way
Back home.

If I didn't know
Where this train was goin'
I wouldn't care.
'Cause I'd be
Anywhere but here.

Chorus
Track Name: What Should I Do
What should I do
Now that you're gone?
Should I miss you?
Why don't I miss you?

What do I do
If my feelings grow for someone new?
Should I leave it alone?
I have to leave it alone.

It isn't fair to keep you hangin' on.
When oh, I do love you.
It isn't fair to have these dreams I dream
When oh, they're not about you.

How do I say
What I really want to say?
So I can let you go?
I have to let you know.

What should I do
Now that you're gone?
Should I miss you?
Why don't I miss you?

It isn't fair to keep you hangin' on.
When oh, I do love you.
It isn't fair to have these dreams I dream
When oh, they're not about you.

How do I say
What I really want to say?
So I can let you go?
I have to let you know.

What should I do
Now that you're gone?
Should I miss you?
Why don't I miss you?
Track Name: More
I know that look upon your face
You're asking me again today.
I can see it all in your eyes so please,
Won't you listen when I say...

Chorus:
I love you more,
Than the mountains and the trees.
I love you more,
Than the birds and the bees.
I love you more,
Than the fishes in the seas.
I love you, love you, love you
Everyday a little more.

I can sense what you're feeling.
You're asking me again today.
You don't even have to say a word
So listen when I say...

Chorus

I don't know why I have to remind you,
By proving my love everyday.
I don't mind 'cause it's what I do,
I'm loving you in every way.

I understand what you're saying.
You're asking me again today.
And how many times I'll never know
But please listen when I say...

Chorus 2x
Track Name: Recipe
We're the kind of band
That will bring home the bacon.
And with the love we bring
We'll know you're not fakin'.
Just help yourself to this delicious buffet,
And have another helping
Of our lovin' souffle.

Spread us on your biscuits
And add us to your tea.
Take a spoonful of honey
And then maybe you'll see.
Chocolate dip our fingers
If you want somethin' sweet,
We'll satisfy your hunger
'Cause our love is like a feast.

Oh, oh yeah we're stirring up your soul.

Chorus:
We've got that lovin' recipe.
We've got that lovin' recipe
We've got that lovin' recipe
Grill me, baste me,
Baby won't you taste me?

Dice up some veggies
And get your salad tossed.
And before you eat it
We'll add our special sauce.
Take off our clothes
And grease us with oil.
Now you've got us simmering
To a slow and steady boil.

Oh, oh yeah like chick soup into my soul.

Chorus

We'd like to share with you
Our favorite recipe.
Now here's the first step;
Just get down on your knees.
We'd like to make a tasty somethin'
So we might win your heart.
And I'll try hard not to far.

Oh, oh yeah we're stirring up your soul.

Chorus 3x
