01 We All Need
Lyrics
ARTISTS
Come on down, take a good look around. 
What your gonna see, from what it use to be. 
Took a long time to build and took a lot of our will.
No we didn't quit,
Even when we weren't fit
No we didn't quit,
That's what makes it our world.

Come on in, do you like what you see?
Well it didn't just happen and it certainly wasn't free.
If you want on in, here's what you gotta do.
We're always making room.
Always room for one more.
A price to be paid and it's paid at the door.

First you need, a little heart and soul.
Mixed together with some work, digging for that goal
Take away your politics and take away your greed.
Put that all together,
Share it with the rest 
Put that all together,
That's the world we all need

First you need, a little heart and soul.
Mixed together with some work, digging for that goal
Take away your politics and take away your greed.
Put that all together,
Share it with the rest 
Put that all together,
That's the world we all need

Com'on baby won't ya tell me what's on your mind tonight 
Go ahead and tell me

04 Mercy Me
Lyrics
ARTISTS
Through all the late nights, without a single fight.
Take a little slap or two, in a place that's right for you.
All of the impassioned battles made the rafters rattle.
As you closed the door, the boots hit the floor.

My thoughts to you I remember those times
When you locked the door and closed the blinds.
The way I felt what a way to be
The things we did oh mercy me

Mercy me, mercy me, mercy me, oh mercy me, oh ya

Going all night long while we listened to song
The things we would try would make a mother cry
Taking naps in the day to stay up all night and play
You know that saying where there's a will, there's a way

The day you wore that hot little number
The red plaid one that spoke with thunder
Oh lord what a sight to see
The way you moved oh mercy me

Mercy me, mercy me, mercy me, oh mercy me, oh play it boys

We've parted ways but I still think of you
The way you smiled at me it was real and true
All those nights together want it to last forever
Passion was high then could it happen again

There were times when we worked all night long
At something that I know wasn't wrong
The memories I have your what I see 
The thoughts of you oh mercy me 

Oh mercy me, giggle, giggle

06 The Party Song
Lyrics
ARTISTS
Started off my day, did myself the usual way
I got in my car and drove, made it to the corner
When I noticed, this was gonna be a different day
Not like any other, no no other day

Made it through my job today
Didn't get shit from the boss anyway
So I got in my car and drove, made it to the corner
When I noticed, there was a bar with a half-lit sign saying
"Com'on inside and party with us tonight"

When I got into the bar,
Everyone was drinking and singing to a tune
Com'on and join along, we're all here to party
Talking of the past and fillin up our glasses
Listen to another one's story

I left the bar real late that night
Made it to my car by a dim street light
So I got in my car and drove, made it to the corner
When I noticed, there was a girl in a long black car
Waiting to take me for a ride tonight

It seemed like we drove, on and on for hours
She took me to a place, a place that I've been to
In my dreams and I really didn't seem to mind
It really didn't seem to matter to me tonight

Nothing's gonna change my life today
Started my morning the same old way
So I got in my car and drove, made it to the corner
When I noticed, this was just another day with pay
Just like any other ordinary day

Just like any other, no no other
Just like any other ordinary day

Just like any other, no no other
Just like any other ordinary day

08 Smile
Lyrics
ARTISTS
Its that time when everything is right 
Life is great with everything to look forward to
You're at a park and the birds are singing
Life is great and you feel so good
Look around you people are smiling 
Love the way that people make their walk 
It's times in life we should cherish
Life and all it has to offer

Get on out and do it
You will be glad that you did
Pump up your heart 
Get your blood flowing 
Make you feel just like a kid
Keep that smile on your face
Keep the bounce in your step
Times like these you can't replace
Come and join the human race

Take a ride out in the country
And just take in the sights
Stop in to a local cafe
Stop on in for a slice
Breath in the fresh air 
Check out the stars at night 
Times like these you will remember
For the rest of your life

09 I Had A Dream
Lyrics
ARTISTS
I started the song with some of the words and John helped me add to them, along with the background melody of the song.
Rich Cortese sat in on a session and played the bass, all other instruments are played by me, Kuch

I had a dream one night.
But when I awoke,
I had an overwhelming desire to stay.

And every night I'd try,
I'd try to go back and recreate
What made me feel alive?

A moment of the dream
Took me by surprise and I wasn't really sure
What was real?

So every night I'd try
To go back, to sleep, to find
What made me feel alive?
What made me feel alive?

I often wonder what,
What we'll be doing when we're all through
With the present life?

I hope, that it feels,
Just like the moment when I was awoken
>From that dream

Now I live my life
Letting all the things that don't really matter
Slip on by

So every night I'd try
To go back, to sleep, to find
What made me feel alive?
What made me feel alive?
What made me feel alive?
What made me feel alive?
Feel alive

10 There You Were
Lyrics
ARTISTS
 There you were
Looking in my eyes 
I had no words
You took me by surprise

Only for a moment 
I thought my heart had stopped
You made me feel 
What I thought that I forgot

In that instant
When I looked in to your eyes
You made me feel 
Suspended in time

I wasn't sure what I was feeling
I'm not sure how long that it's been

There you go 
Looking in my eyes
I really have to wonder 
Where my future lies

All of these sensations
Are racing over me 
Maybe it is you 
That I really want to see 
 

Here I go again 
Asking if it's fair
I wish I didn't care
Who, what, when and where

I wasn't sure what I was feeling
I'm not sure how long that it's been
You were the one that got me thinking 
And now I know, that it is real 

There you were
Looking in my eyes 
I had no words
You took me by surprise

Only for a moment 
I thought my heart had stopped
You made me feel 
What I thought that I forgot

In that instant
When I looked in to your eyes
You made me feel 
Suspended in time

I wasn't sure what I was feeling
I'm not sure how long that it's been
You were the one that got me thinking 
And now I know, that it is real

12 Figure It Out
Lyrics
ARTISTS
Concentration, frustration 
Education, degradation
Infestation, migration
Hibernation, jubilation
Penetration, fascination
Stimulation, sensation
Regulation, manipulation
Resurrection, rejection

Many things have meaning to me
If people could just see what I see
Let them in my vision let them be
As happy and full as me

Concentration, frustration 
Education, degradation
Infestation, migration
Hibernation, jubilation

Can't you see what your doing to me
What lies within, without, or beside of me
Take a break from all this hostility
Get to a life of sincerity, sincerity

Penetration, fascination
Stimulation, sensation
Regulation, manipulation
Resurrection, rejection

Can you relate to what I say?
Think the way my mind does in some way
How can you live with all your pain and doubt
Just put a smile on your face you'll figure it out 
You'll figure it out, you'll figure it out, you'll figure it out 
You'll figure it out

13 Am I Blind
Lyrics
ARTISTS
DEEPENING DEPRESSIONS 
CLUTTERING IN MY MIND
I CAN'T SEE TOO FAR AHEAD
SOMEONE TELL ME AM I BLIND?

IF THE SUN REFUSES TO RISE
I WOULDN'T EVEN CARE
I CAN'T MEAN THAT MUCH TO YOU 
SINCE YOU LEFT ME STANDING THERE

BABE I THINK IT'S TIME I TOLD YOU
JUST HOW IT SEEMS
I THOUGHT WE MADE THE WORLD GO ROUND
THEN YOUR COLDNESS KNOCKED ME TO MY KNEES

IT'S FUNNY HOW PEOPLE CHANGE SO FAST 
GOOD TIMES NEVER SEEM TO LAST
AT LEAST THEY DON'T FOR ME
AM I BLIND? WHY CAN'T I SEE?

THE WAY WE BOTH WERE ACTING 
SENT SHIVERS DOWN MY SPINE
THE WORDS DI  DN'T FIT THE CARDS WE'RE PLAYING
WILL I EVER FIND THE TIME?

TO GET ALONG WITHOUT YOU
MAKES MY MIND SPIN AROUND
I SEE YOUR FACE IN MY DREAMS AT NIGHT
AND LISTEN FOR YOUR VOICE BUT HEAR NO SOUND

I'M NOT SO BLIND I CANNOT SEE
 IF IT WASN'T YOU COULD IT BE ME
SOMETIMES NO ONE'S TO BLAME
I HOPE THE NEXT TIME ITS NOT THE SAME

BABE I'M LEAVING NOW
I'M GOING AWAY
WHERE I'M GOING I CANNOT SAY
WHEN I GET THERE MAYBE I'LL LET YOU KNOW

BABE I THINK ITS TIME I TOLD YOU
JUST HOW IT SEEMS
I THOUGHT WE MADE THE WORLD GO ROUND
THEN YOUR COLDNESS KNOCKED ME TO MY KNEES

THE WAY WE BOTH WERE ACTING 
SENT SHIVERS DOWN MY SPINE
THE WORDS DODN'T FIT THE CARDS WE'RE PLAYING
WILL I EVER FIND THE TIME?

THOSE DEEPENING DEPRESSIONS 
CLUTTERING IN MY MIND
I CAN'T SEE TOO FAR AHEAD
SOMEONE TELL ME AM I BLIND?
