Track Name: Wackos and Weirdos
(Verse)
Smiling on the outside, cringing on the in
Another date down but not another win
Best part of the night was our goodbye
How do I end up with all the wrong types

(Chorus)
Why do I get the wackos and the weirdos
Super hero wannbes and those it’s all about me
Showoff’s, control freaks, each one a disaster
Then I get another
How many can there be

(Verse)
First impressions can be very deceiving
Starting out so well perfect in everyway
But the façade fades so quickly
Then I see him for his true self

(Chorus)
Why do I get the wackos and the weirdos
Super hero wannbes and those it’s all about me
Showoff’s, control freaks, each one a disaster
Then I get another
How many can there be

(Verse)
Picky’s not the problem options are the issue
Just how many more will I have to sit through
Until the right one finally walks in
all of these nights can come to an end

(Chorus)
Why do I get the wackos and the weirdos
Super hero wannbes and those it’s all about me
Showoff’s, control freaks, each one a disaster
Then I get another
How many can there be

(Ending)
how many can there be
how many can there
how many can there be
Track Name: Can I Be Honest
(Verse)
I’ve held back waiting on the side
Watching while he passed me by
Keeping quiet as his friend
As I start to die inside

(Chorus)
Can I be honest here tonight
Tell him of the love I have inside
I’ve been waiting all this time
tell him of the love I have inside

(Verse)
It’s in the very breath I take
Haunting both my night and day
Flutter of heartbeats away
Are the words I need to say

(Chorus)
Can I be honest here tonight
Tell him of the love I have inside
I’ve been waiting all this time
tell him of the love I have inside

(Verse)
We might lose all that we have now
Knowing’s worth the risk I take
Fearing what he has to say
Hoping that he’ll feel the same

(Chorus)
Can I be honest here tonight
Tell him of the love I have inside
I’ve been waiting all this time
tell him of the love I have inside

(Chorus)
Can I be honest here tonight
Love I have inside
Can I be honest here tonight
Love I have inside
Can I be Honest here tonight
Love I have inside
Track Name: In Your Eyes
(Verse)
In that one special moment
You make me feel so beautiful
Like I’m the only girl in the world
It takes my breath away

(Chorus)
When you look at me
It makes time stand still
Without saying a word
You make your love known
Cause I can see it in your eyes

(Verse)
One glance makes me feel so weak
My heart beats faster than before
Making me blush and as I turn away
With a smile on my lips

(Chorus)
When you look at me
It makes time stand still
Without saying a word
You make your love known
Cause I can see it in your eyes

(Bridge)
When I look into your eyes
I catch my breath and freeze
Knowing your love is always there
Sweeps me away
Getting me lost in your gaze

(Chorus)
When you look at me
It makes time stand still
Without saying a word
You make your love known
Cause I can see it in your eyes

(Verse)
The deepest kind of passion
Lasting longer than a lifetime
There is no fear of it flying off
When skies start turning gray

(Chorus)
When you look at me
It makes time stand still
Without saying a word
You make your love known
Cause I can see it in your eyes

(ending)
It’s in your eyes
I can see it in your eyes
Track Name: Let Him Go
(Verse)
nick stays with you out of honor
Even though he loves another
Keeping him will never bring back
love you once shared

(Chorus)
I know it tears you up inside
you cry yourself to sleep at night
It’s not worth forcing him to stay
If you will never get his love back
Just let him go

(Verse)
His gaze grows far away
Words are few between you
Is this really worth the pain you
put yourself through

(Chorus)
I know it tears you up inside
you cry yourself to sleep at night
It’s not worth forcing him to stay
If you will never get his love back
Just let him go

(Verse)
fearing you will be alone
That is why you keep him
Listen to me when I tell you
You’ll find love again

(Chorus)
I know it tears you up inside
you cry yourself to sleep at night
It’s not worth forcing him to stay
If you will never get his love back
Just let him go

(ending)
Please just let him go
Track Name: Gone
(Verse)
Tears fall from my eyes
Words escape me now
When I finally have to say goodbye
It makes me wish I had more time

(Chorus)
During the night I’ll reach for you to find no one by my side
I think about the times we shared
And our kiss under the starry sky
Now you’re gone taken from this world

(Verse)
I miss you everyday
Thinking you’ll come home
When the phone rings it’s your voice I hear
You’re but a ghost from my past

(Chorus)
During the night I’ll reach for you to find no one by my side
I think about the times we shared
And our kiss under the starry sky
Now you’re gone taken from this world

(Verse)
Memories I hold dear
Of the times we shared
Even though you may have left my life
My love for you will never die

(Chorus)
During the night I’ll reach for you to find no one by my side
I think about the times we shared
And our kiss under the starry sky
Now you’re gone taken from this world
Track Name: Olive Branch
(Verse)
Unattended scars become open wounds
Seeping poison in our souls
Letting hurt simmer inside
Until we finally lose control

(Chorus)
Maybe these words aren’t enough
But What I say is true
I’m ready to end this fight
And begin anew
Starting with this olive branch to you

(Verse)
Memories will linger and anger stays
Allowing time to slip by
Silence is so smothering
Leaving no words for us to say

(Chorus)
Maybe these words aren’t enough
What I say is true
I’m ready to end this fight
And begin anew
Starting with this olive branch to you

(Verse)
I shouldn’t have chosen the words I did
Holding all your faults against you
Hoping damage that I’ve done
Will heal instead of stay with you

(Chorus)
Maybe these words aren’t enough
What I say is true
I’m ready to end this fight
And begin anew
Starting with this olive branch to you

(Ending Chorus)
Maybe my words aren’t enough
But What I say is true
I’m ready to end this fight
And begin anew
Starting with this olive branch to you

(ending)
Here is my olive branch
Track Name: Tears From the Sky
chorus)
like tears from the sky
Pour all around me
Erasing my pain
Erasing the stains
My life is new again

(verse)
they say the past is the past
and the future is bright
it’s hard to see that in everyday life
I want to run away
into the coming storm

(chorus)
like tears from the sky
Pour all around me
Erasing my pain
Erasing the stains
My life is new again

(verse)
their words echo in my ears
and go round in my head
I feel the drops shower over my skin
cleansing marks left behind
healing my unseen scars

(chorus)
like tears from the sky
Pour all around me
Erasing my pain
Erasing the stains
My life is new again

(Bridge)
feels like each painful act
is written on my skin
there’s calm in the storm
the rain becomes my tears
making me clean

(Chorus)
like tears from the sky
Pour all around me
Erasing my pain
Erasing the stains
My life is new again

(Chorus)
like tears from the sky
Pour all around me
Erasing my pain
Erasing the stains
My life is new again
My life is new again
Track Name: Sail Away
(Verse)
Blue moon glowing in the night
Shining off the water lapping on the shore
Sleepless nights watching the ocean
Hoping to catch a glimpse on the horizon

(Chorus)
You said you found the answer
To make our dreams come true
You would sail away for a year or two
Wait for me you said
But couldn’t say yes

(Verse)
Our worst fight was on that day
words said in anger never truly meant
Telling me there’s nothing for you
Then you left without ever looking back

(Chorus)
You said you found the answer
To make our dreams come true
You would sail away for a year or two
Wait for me you said
But couldn’t say yes

(Bridge)
When you disappeared from view
Then I knew how deeply I loved you
Regretting not waiting for you
Now that’s all I ever do

(Chorus)
You said you found the answer
To make our dreams come true
You would sail away for a year or two
Wait for me you said
But couldn’t say yes

(Verse)
Pacing on the widows walk
All my prayers and tears swept up in the passing winds
Carrying my words off to you
Hoping they will bring you back to my again

(Chorus)
You said you found the answer
To make our dreams come true
You would sail away for a year or two
Wait for me you said
Track Name: Night in Santa Monica
(Verse)
The summer I left home
a picture perfect memory
Carefree days spent falling in love
Three months full of young romance

(chorus)
the moon was our spotlight
the city our stage
we danced on beach
to the crash of the waves
that night in Santa Monica
Our night in Santa Monica

(verse)
meeting as the sunset
walking down the shore hand in hand
gentle kissing out on the pier
whispered this could last for years

(chorus)
the moon was our spotlight
the city our stage
we danced on beach
to the crash of the waves
that night in Santa Monica
Our night in Santa Monica

(verse)
arms entwined as we rise
Pacific Wheel reaches the sky
our dreams were our guide to the stars
anything was possible

(chorus)
the moon was our spotlight
the city our stage
we danced on beach
to the crash of the waves
that night in Santa Monica
Our night in Santa Monica

(chorus)
When the moon was our spotlight
the city our stage
we danced on beach
to the crash of the waves
that night in Santa Monica
Our night in Santa Monica
Track Name: Reach for the Sky
(Verse)
Watching each firework high in the sky
Each one bursting with color and life
Before he could grab one it faded away
But he would try
To reach
Reach for the sky

(Chorus)
Reach for the sky reach for your dreams
Never hold back no matter what life may bring
Cause if you try
You’ll reach the sky

(Verse)
Stretching his arms out as far as he could
Longing to fill his heart’s simple wish
Finally catch one and hold in his hands
So he would try
To reach
Reach for the sky

(Chorus)
Reach for the sky reach for your dreams
Never hold back no matter what life may bring
Cause if you try
You’ll reach the sky

(Bridge)
Times in your life when you just seem to fail
Sky seems so far your dreams so frail
Keep looking forward and never look back
Then you’ve tried
To reach
Reach for the sky

(Chorus)
Reach for the sky reach for your dreams
Never hold back no matter what life may bring
Cause if you try
You’ll reach the sky

(Verse)
try after try his hand finally reached
fingers clasped round what once was a dream
what seemed so far was now his to keep
because he tried
to reach
reach for the sky

(Chorus)
Reach for the sky reach for your dreams
Never hold back no matter what life may bring
Cause if you try
You’ll reach the sky
Track Name: Let's Dance
(Verse)
I see you staring over here
Wishing you were next to me
Don’t be shy come over my way
I want to see what you can do

(Chorus)
Come a little closer, be a little daring
Take risks with your moves
Spin me round dip me low
Keep me next to you
So let’s dance

(Verse)
Do you feel Passion in the air
Something happens when we touch
Your eyes tell me that there is more
We will see where this night takes us

(Chorus)
Come a little closer, be a little daring
Take risks with your moves
Spin me round dip me low
Keep me close to you
So let’s dance

Stay until the early hours
So it’s only you and I
Let the music wash over us
Creating lasting memories

Come a little closer, be a little daring
Take risks with your moves
Spin me round dip me low
Keep me next to you so

(Music Interlude)

(Chorus)
Come a little closer, be a little daring
Take risks with your moves
Spin me round dip me low
Keep me close to you
so let’s dance
so let’s dance
Track Name: Horseshoe
(Verse)
It was on a misty morning day
They rode up and took George away
Didn’t listen to his cries or pleas
Only one thought was on their mind
A hanging is what there’d be tonight

(Chorus)
They strung him up and cut him down
Found out what he said was true
The deed was done the price was paid
There was nothing they could do
But leave a horseshoe on his grave
To give him luck along the way

(Verse)
Found guilty before his trial came
There was nothing else left to say
Yelled his innocence out anyways
The words hung empty in the air
As he was dragged into the street

(Chorus)
They strung him up and cut him down
Found out what he said was true
The deed was done the price was paid
There was nothing they could do
But leave a horseshoe on his grave
To give him luck along the way

(Verse)
His fate hung right in front of his eyes
He mouthed I love you to his wife
Last rites were said the hood slipped on
A blameless heart it beat its last
another confessed to the crime

(Chorus)
They strung him up and cut him down
Found out what he said was true
The deed was done the price was paid
There was nothing they could do
But leave a horseshoe on his grave
To give him luck along the way

(Chorus)
They strung him up and cut him down
Found out what he said was true
The deed was done the price was paid
There was nothing they could do
But leave a horseshoe on his grave
To give him luck along the way
Track Name: Victory
(Part Chorus)
United we stand now and forever
We’ll never stop until we have victory

(Verse)
Told how to live each day
What is right, what is wrong?
Wanting what’s been promised
Our right to be free

(Chorus)
Out of line or getting through
Not going to back down
United we stand now and forever
We’ll never stop until we have victory

(Verse)
One voice can disappear
Side by side we are strong
Getting out our message
For the world to hear

(Chorus)
Out of line or getting through
Not going to back down
United we stand now and forever
We’ll never stop until we have victory

(Verse)
Come to take us away
Try to break us apart
Whatever you do we’ll stay
Raising our voices

(Chorus)
Out of line or getting through
Not going to back down
United we stand now and forever
We’ll never stop until we have victory

One Chance

It’s a choice of a lifetime
Play it safe or go all the way
The decision is yours

Say a prayer and close your eyes
If you stop short you will wonder
Where you might have landed

One chance
Why don’t you take it?
One Chance
To show who you are
One Chance
To make or break it
One Chance
To become a star

(Verse)
Don’t let others try to bring you down
You can make your wishes true
You have the desire inside
To make it all the way

(Chorus)
One chance
Why don’t you take it?
One Chance
To show who you are
One Chance
To make or break it
One Chance
To become a star

(Chorus)
One chance
Why don’t you take it?
One Chance
To show who you are
One Chance

Track Name: Heartbeat of Life
(Verse)
Waking up to the mundane
Everyday it’s the same
Same route, same routine
Passing by, saying hi
No one looks my way
Nothing seems to ever change

(Chorus)
The pulse is in the steps we take
The world breaths by the differences we make
I come alive when I realize
We’re the heartbeat of life
the heartbeat of life
the heartbeat of life

(Verse)
color starts to fill the gray
waking from my trance today
new path, new purpose
ready to go, I’m aglow
looking around me
endless possibilities

(chorus)
The pulse is in the steps we take
The world breaths by the differences we make
I come alive when I realize
We’re the heartbeat of life
the heartbeat of life
the heartbeat of life

(Bridge)
When my life seems frozen
Others passing me by
Feeling trapped in the day to day
I remember
I remember

(Chorus)
The pulse is in the steps we take
The world breaths by the differences we make
I come alive when I realize
We’re the heartbeat of life
It’s the heartbeat of life
It’s the heartbeat of life

(vocals only)
It’s the heartbeat of life
It’s heartbeat of life
It’s the heartbeat of life

(ending)
It’s the heartbeat of life
It’s heartbeat of life
It’s the heartbeat of life
The heartbeat of life
