about

This is our 4th album. We had a few songs that sort of blended together in a medley so we opened and closed the album with those ideas. We were at a point of trying to expand our horizons, so to speak.

Track Name: Brand New Day / Awakening / Sounds Of The Day
Brand New Day

Oh, Oh I can’t believe it
You’re back again in my arms
A second chance I know we’re gonna make it
Never again to be apart

Never again, oh no
Never again

And baby
If we fall we fall together
If we stumble along the way
We won’t look back ‘cause there’s tomorrow
We got a brand new day
We got a brand new day

Oh, am I really dreamin’
Don’t wake me up if I am
I can’t explain it’s such a good feeling
I wanna feel it again and again

Oh yeah, again and again
Oh yeah, my baby

If we fall we fall together
If we stumble along the way
We won’t look back ‘cause there’s tomorrow
We got a brand new day
We got a brand new day

If we fall we fall together
If we stumble along the way
We won’t look back ‘cause there’s tomorrow
We got a brand new day
We got a brand new day

My baby, oh yeah, my baby

If we fall we fall together
If we stumble along the way
We won’t look back ‘cause there’s tomorrow
We got a brand new day
We got a brand new day

Sounds Of The Day

Sounds of the day
Make my mind drift away
Puts me in a dream
What’s the grander scheme

Rocking in my chair
Gentle breeze in the air
Close my eyes all I hear
The sounds of life we hold so dear

Listening to the sounds of the day
Takes me to a place worlds away

I greet the morning sun
A new day has begun
Music from the birds that sing
A song in tune with everything

Listening to the sounds of the day
Takes me to a place worlds away

Just listen………….to the sounds of the day
Just listen………….to the sounds of the day
Just listen………….to the sounds of the day
Just listen………….to the sounds of the day……………………..

It’s You In A Heartbeat

I got somethin’ to tell you
I got somethin’ to say
I’m always thinkin’ about you
Each and every day
Such a wonderful feeling
Has come over me
Got my senses reeling
So let it be

Girl you take me to those places

Got you in my heartbeat
Got you on my mind
So if you ever wonder
You’ll always find
It’s you in a hearbeat……..

It’s a brand new day yeah
And I’m here with you
Every night and day yeah
I want to spend with you
So if you’re down and out
I’ll be there right away
That’s what it’s all about
And that’s why I say

It’s you in a heartbeat
It’s you all the time
Got you in my heartbeat

You’ll always find
It’s you in a hearbeat……..

Track Name: The Good Guy
The Good Guy

He’s not in it for money
He’s not in it for show
He’ll be there whenever you need him
Where ever you may go
He’s always there to hold you
When you’re hurtin’ inside
He’s always there to wipe a tear
That you may have cried
So don’t let this one pass you by
Ladies here’s your man

He’s a good guy
He’s worth a try
Just give him a chance
He’s a good guy
No goodbye’s
Not from this man

He’s always there to talk to
When you need a friend
His love for you is oh so true
He’ll never pretend
So don’t let this one pass you by
Ladies here’s your man

He’s a good guy
He’s worth a try
Just give him a chance
He’s a good guy
No goodbye’s
Not from this man

Good guys don’t lie
But sometimes it’s not enough
To make you see sincerity
And how you can be loved

Track Name: I'm Just A Native New Yorker
I’m Just A Native New Yorker

Stickball, handball, hoops downtown
We play it til the sun goes down
Hop a bus, ride the trains
Long hot summers in crowded lanes

I’m just a native New Yorker
Got my opinions, I’m a practical joker
Don’t look at me like I’m from outer space
Proud that I can call it my place

Hustle bustle twenty four seven
Call me crazy but I call it heaven
Keep on movin’ or get out of the way
A sea of heroes at work and at play

I’m just a native New Yorker
Got my opinions, I’m a practical joker
Don’t look at me like I’m from outer space
Proud that I can call it my place

At times it’s not pretty
But I sure love this city
Got places and streets to roam
Neon lights, Broadway shows
Rich and famous, average joes
New York City, welcome to my home

I’m just a native New Yorker
Got my opinions, I’m a practical joker
Don’t look at me like I’m from outer space
Proud that I can call it my place

Track Name: You've Got It All
You’ve Got It All

You struggle all your life
And what do you get from it
You’re only here one time
And nothing seems to come of it
Your mind gets all screwed up
Enraged aggravation
And don’t get crazy you say
Forget the situation

That’s cause you’ve got it all
So who are you to say
Did you ever fight or fall
No, you just had it your own way
You’ve got it all
And as you set on high
I got my back against the wall and you’re nothin’…….
Til the day you die

Has suicide ever crossed your mind
Has it ever been that tough
No give, just take, that’s how you make it
And it’s still not enough
Well it’s just as well, you’ll be damned in hell
With all your money
And people like us you look at with disgust
Now ain’t that funny

That’s cause you’ve got it all
Did you ever feel the pain
Of what it’s like to lose
When there’s nothing left to gain
I said, you’ve got it all
And as you set on high
I got my back against the wall and you’re nothin’………
Til the day you die

You’ve got it all
Did you ever feel the pain
Of what it’s like to lose man
When there’s nothing left to gain
Yeah, you’ve got it all
And as you set on high
You remember how you got there man cause you’re nothin’……
Til the day you die.

Track Name: A Song For Laurie
A SONG FOR LAURIE

She cares about everyone
She’s brighter than the sun
Even from afar
She’s my shining star
And when I fall
She’s the one I call
Always makes the time
To ease my troubled mind
Sister sister what would I do
Sister sister if not for you

If it wasn’t for Laurie
Where would I be
This angel from heaven
She comes to rescue me
And in my darkest hour
Her light shines on me
If it wasn’t for Laurie
Where would I be

Thinking of everyone else
No time for herself
And she’s my best friend
She’s with me ‘til the end
Sister sister what would I do
Sister sister if not for you

If it wasn’t for Laurie
Where would I be
This angel from heaven
She comes to rescue me
And in my darkest hour
Her light shines on me
If it wasn’t for Laurie
Where would I be
If it wasn’t for Laurie

Track Name: The Hypocritic Oath
The Hypocritic Oath

Bells are ringin’, the choir’s singin’
Welcome all races and creeds
Raise your hands my fellow man
The Lord will hear your needs

We’re free to believe in a higher power
Muhammed, Jesus, or even Allah
Step right in and find a pew
Your God is watching over you

You shake my hand on Sunday
Then stab my back on Monday
Smilin’ while you’re preachin’
Don’t believe in what you’re sayin’

We’d love to have you join our church
And wash away all your hurts
Love and friendship here for you
With a bit of judgement thrown in too

Turn to page 107
Let’s read about Hell and Heaven
Be good, be kind, and always pray
Have your sins washed away

You shake my hand on Sunday
Then stab my back on Monday
Smilin’ while you’re preachin’
Don’t believe in what you’re sayin’

I’ll believe in what I believe
Don’t need your lies to help me grieve
Life’s not fair, that’s the bottom line
Truth and justice are only mine

Track Name: I Just Wanna Cry
I Just Wanna Cry

I remember that day
That you turned and walked away
You had nothing else to say
Oh how I wished that you had stayed

And I just wanna cry
When I think of you and I
My heart forever sighs
Since the day you said goodbye.

All those times I held you close
I hold on to them the most
An empty heart so hard to fill
Cause I know I love you still

And I just wanna cry
When I think of you and I
My heart forever sighs
Since the day you said …….

I just need to be on my own
I need some space and time alone
You can’t break a heart of stone
I keep it all inside……and I just wanna cry

And I just wanna cry
When I think of you and I
My heart forever sighs
Since the day you said goodbye.

Track Name: Summer In San Diego
Summer in San Diego

Early morning down at the beach
So much to see
Gonna burn off, it’s gonna be nice by noon
Layin’ in the sand, I ain’t got nothin’ planned
Just soakin’ in the rays and listenin’ to tunes.

Lovin’ my summer, lovin’ my summer in San Diego
Don’t wanna go home, just wanna lay low……..
In San Diego…….

Summer breeze and the palm trees
Boats upon the bay
Oh yeah this is the life for me
Ocean’s roar, a walk along the shore
There’s no place else I’d rather be……..

Lovin’ my summer, lovin’ my summer in San Diego
Don’t wanna go home, just wanna lay low……..
In San Diego………

Lovin’ my summer, lovin’ my summer in San Diego
Don’t wanna go home , just wanna lay low………….
In San Diego………(repeat)

It’s always summer, always summer in San Diego
I’m home, right here at home in San Diego
In San Diego……….

Track Name: Land Of Lullabies
Land Of Lullabies

Baby now don’t cry, I’ll dry your bright eyes
I’ll take you to a land of sweet lullabyes
Moonbeams and daydreams a fun place to play
Wind chimes sing love rhymes along the way

Sleep now little baby and when you rise
I’ll be there to hold you and brighten your skies
Smiles and kisses are waiting for you
What your heart wishes will always come true for you

Sleep now little baby and when you rise
I’ll be there to hold you and brighten your skies
Smiles and kisses are waiting for you
What your heart wishes will always come true for you

Baby now don’t cry, I’ll dry your bright eyes
I’ll take you to a land of sweet lullabyes
Moonbeams and daydreams a fun place to play
Wind chimes sing love rhymes along the way

Track Name: 21st Century William Tell / Day's End
21st Century William Tell

No mystery here to be untied
Here's where the past and present collide
The strongest twine strung from the bow
Expertise behind the arrow.
