Track Name: She
Witchy woman, lady always knows the way
Feel her magic, only hope is stay away
You’ll feel like you’ve got the control
But she’s run away with your soul
She’s the siren who’ll dash you upon the cape

Wake up in a sweat, it’s a dream
And not something that you want to think about
You realize it’s not what it seems

She’s in love with me
But I never got a say
Someone save me please from her crazy game
She’s in love with me
And I’m scared she’s here to stay

Strangely peaceful, yet you know things go astray
Restless spirit, not a single card to play
She’ll get all up inside your head
while she thinks about another’s bed
She’s the nightmare the devil sent your way

You realize it’s not what it seems
And not something that you want to think about
Wake up in a sweat, it’s a dream

She’s in love with me
But I never got a say
Someone save me please from her crazy game
She’s in love with me
And I’m scared she’s here to stay

She’s in love with me
But I never got a say
Someone save me please from her crazy game
She’s in love with me
And I’m scared she’s here to stay
She’s in love with me
But how do I get away?
Someone save me please from her crazy game
She’s in love with me
And I might want her to stay
Track Name: Come What May
Don’t you know
A river flows down to the bay
Every song we sing
Will end or fade to gray

Whatever happens to me
Nothin’ like the pain that I see
It won’t mean a thing when the music plays

Live another day
Your troubles fade away
It’s gonna be okay
I love you come what may

Don’t you know
Doesn’t matter what they say
Stand up tall and play the tunes
Your own way

How bad can your troubles be
When so many ain’t even free
They won’t mean a thing when the piper’s paid

Live another day
Your troubles fade away
It’s gonna be okay
I love you come what may
I’m gonna love you come what may
Every day, till the music plays
Track Name: Funk Machine
You won’t believe
Where we’re gonna go
Never conceive
Secrets that i know

Well, what do you say
Now that you feel it?
Like shootin’ stars
You and me

When we play
Blastin’ off to outer space
Flyin’ free

Know what I mean?
Ride my funk machine
Hear what I say?
Ride it every day

Groovin’ with me
Feel our rhythm flow
Melody supreme
Harmony below

Ain’t nothin’ we need
Music supply it
All time is ours
Endlessly

When we play
Got a syncopated bass
Feelin’ free

Know what I mean?
Ride my funk machine
Hear what I say?
Ride it every day

Lookin’ for speed
Climb aboard let’s go
We’re launching today
See you in orbit
We’re satellites
You and me

Know what I mean?
Ride my funk machine
Hear what I say?
Ride it every day
Track Name: Gotta Get Away
Lookin’ for someone to save me
One day I’ll find you, I believe
But I’m okay, as long as we find a way
And I’ve got precious little time
Before I’ve gotta get away

I’m tired of the same old boring scene
All the hangers-on who want a piece of me
And I’m alright, so long as we spend the night
Just tell me that it’s me your with
Not kiss and tell before goodbye

I gotta get away
I need to find a new place
I gotta gotta get away
Unless you make me wanna stay

What’s on the highway that I see?
Roadkill from my life that’s me
I do my time, and hope that payback will be mine
I pray that you can help me through
And bring some meaning to my life

I gotta get away
I need to find a new place
I gotta gotta get away
Unless you make me wanna stay

Something’s got a hold on me
Will it ever ever ever let me be?
I gotta get away

I gotta gotta get away
Unless you make me wanna stay

Lord, take this pain away from me
And all the people who can’t see
I’m not okay, but I really wanna find escape
What I really need is something new
To let me see another way

I gotta get away
I need to find a new place
I gotta gotta get away
Unless you make me wanna stay

I gotta get away
I need to find a new place
I gotta gotta get away
Hope to find a better way
Track Name: Fly Away
Never, never
Did I think we’d be
Here today

Liars, liars
Never believe
What they say, hey

Lover, lover
Can’t you see
What’s goin’ on?

Run for cover
Games people play
Must escape

Fly away
On a cloud, we leave today
Hideaway, yeah
Floating up here every day, here we’ll stay

Anger, anger
Building up inside
Will betray

Danger, danger
Fire will burn
Clear away, hey

My desire
To be free
Lost in your song
Higher, higher
We’re meant to be
So we say, hey

Fly away
On a cloud, we leave today
Hideaway, yeah
Floating up here every day, here we’ll stay

Fly away
On a cloud, we leave today
Hideaway, yeah
Floating up here every day, here we’ll stay

Fly away
On a cloud, we leave today
Hideaway, yeah
Floating up here every day, here we’ll stay
Track Name: Realize
Let me ask simply, what sets our minds free?
Are we awake?
So many can’t see, missing what will be
Another way, another day

We live once only, our time goes quickly
The mountains, they wear away
Forever we seek, eternal relief
Heavenly remedy

Seventy years, give or take
Fading away every day

You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize
You’ve gotta realize, we’re all the same

You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize
You’ve gotta realize, life ain’t a game

Too many believe, in what they can’t see
They learn to pray
They try to tempt me, with milk and honey
I don't accept what they say

It’s not a real dream, listen to me scream
Stop running away
A sad reality, surely we all see
Life must end some day

Seventy years, give or take
Fading away every day

You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize
You’ve gotta realize, we’re all the same
You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize
You’ve gotta realize, life ain’t a game

Seventy years, give or take
Fading away every day
You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize
You’ve gotta realize, we’re all the same
You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize
You’ve gotta realize, life ain’t a game
Track Name: Just What I Do
Faded memories
Of a life gone by in a blink of an eye
I can’t believe
Over for so long, still think of you

If you needed some solace
If you needed some of mine
Would you reach out to me? One more time?
I’m the one you think of, who knows you

All that I’ve said
All that I’ve done is true
When the world’s run you down
You know I’m still there for you
Though you’re no longer mine
Just pick up the line, because
You know me
it’s just what I do

Melancholy Sundays
Thinking ‘bout tomorrow that I wish was yesterday
I have to say
Don’t need a reason
I’ll never judge you

All that I’ve said
All that I’ve done is true
When the world’s run you down
You know I’m still there for you
Though you’re no longer mine
Just pick up the line, because
You know me
It’s just what I do

Heard along the way
People tell me I’m the one that they’d call
If they had to say
Leaning on your friends, it’s nothing new

Don’t really care
That they feel that I’m no good
Who cares what they say?
They should go away
So long as you still trust me, I’ll trust in you

All that I’ve said
All that I’ve done is true
When the world’s run you down
You know I’m still there for you
Though you’re no longer mine
Just pick up the line, because
You know me
it’s just what I do
Track Name: Another Day
It took me years to see
Lived my life afraid
But when you came to me
You swept my fears away

Reason to believe
Every word you say
Finally feel free
And I pray that you stay

How I found you, I’ll never know
Yet you’re here with me
Always be true, don’t ever go, oh no no no

‘Nother day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day
Spend your time with me, whoa, oh, oh
Let me have another day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day
Livin’ life with me, whoa oh oh

I can truly breathe
Well you taught me to play
Without you I would be
Only livin’ life halfway

Please don’t ever leave
I’d curse that evil day
Spare me misery
Never go away

How I found you, I’ll never know
Yet you’re here with me
Always be true, don’t ever go, oh no no no

‘Nother day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day
Spend your time with me, whoa, oh, oh
Let me have another day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day
Livin’ life with me, whoa oh oh

You disappeared, running from me
Was it my fears, why did you flee?
Don’t run away, don’t run away, my fantasy
And now I pray, come back to me

‘Nother day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day
Come on back to me, oh oh oh
Please give me another day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day
Live your life with me, whoa oh oh

‘Nother day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day
Come on back to me, oh oh oh
Please give me another day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day
Live your life with me, whoa oh oh
Track Name: One Last Run
He was the one, bar none
Always slipped away
Move almost anything they need
Without a trace

The contraband, by land
Across the fifty states
First run was mary jane by train
Heavy weight

Well he’s making one more run
Just making one more run
Well he’s making one more run
He’s making one last run

His lucky break, one day
Movin’ up the chain
He moved the windowpane by plane
In his suitcase

Stretch limo waits, hot legs
Fur coats and gold chains
They said to play it safe, their way
He disobeyed

Well he’s making one more run
Just making one more run
Well he’s making one more run
He’s making one last run

He lost his way, then they
Tired of his games
Gave him away, they called a play
The DEA

They set the stage, that day
He tried to cross the bay
Sped with the pure cocaine, fast lane
He lost the chase

Well he’s making one more run
Just making one more run
Well he’s making one more run
His running days are done

He pushed too far, dark star
Greed led him astray
Was just a stupid fool, their mule
He met his fate
Track Name: Moan
Together, we tango
We’re soulmates
Don’t worry, my darlin’
Our love is here to stay

His sweet talk’s just a lie
She’s not his only lover
He’s not a one-girl guy
He’s got her... and another

Oh baby, I love you, I want ya
Come kiss me, so hot girl
You’re all mine, let it go

But somethin’ went wrong
She left for too long
A sure cheater’s song

On the day he heard that sapphic moan
He knew he was gonna be alone
Two he lusted, tangled up as one
And his cheatin’ heart was left with none

Say baby, I know you
What’s with you?
You just seem... so distant
Did I do something wrong?

It’s hard for her to lie.
She’s runnin’ out of cover
She doesn’t want to cry,
Or say they share a lover

Don’t say that, you hurt me
you know she’s just a friend
Hold on now, what’s happ’nin’? let it go

Expectin’ to score
He walked in the door
Then fell to the floor

On the day he heard that tragic moan
He knew he was gonna be alone
Two he lusted, tangled up as one
And his ramblin’ heart was left with none... left with none

On the day he heard that sapphic moan
He knew he was gonna be alone
Two he lusted, tangled up as one
And his cheatin’ heart was left with none... left with none
