Track Name: All Fall Apart
Go ahead and set fire to your town
If you wanna start over wanna burn it down
The thick black smoke will fill the sky
Your mother and father will wonder why

Why oh why, try as we might
Raise our boy to grow up right
He grows up strong but before too long
Tell me why oh why have we gone so wrong

Heard it on the radio saw it on tv
A whole bunch of people angry like me
But instead of seeing everyone as sisters and brothers
They started pointing fingers at one another

One after the other, blaming another
Hiding behind opinion as cover
Well we can’t get along thinking everyones wrong
It’ll all fall apart before too long

If you’re gonna burn that bridge you better cross it first
And make sure where you going, it aint any worse
Cause when you turn around and see the other side
You’ll see your friends all wondering why

Why oh why try as we might
Make a pact to stay close and tight
Well we grow up strong but before too long
Tell me why oh why have we gone so wrong
Why oh why have we gone so….
Track Name: Madison
Sometime from now, maybe one day soon
Maybe the sky will be lit by a silver moon
We will cross paths, We will stop and say hello
We will ignore all that’s lurking down below

Sometime from now, when we learn again to talk
Crawl if we need to, crawl in time to walk
I will remind you of all that could’ve been
We will recall when we were more than friends

But its been hard going… Yeah
Now I am going…. Yeah
La la la la la la… yeah

I never knew the truth could have so many sides
I never knew a decent man could lead so many lives.
If I am sorry, if you care to hear
We could undo all that’s been over this lonely year

But here I am, and here we’ll go one more time
One day we’ll both be looking back and both be feeling fine
If I am sorry there’s nothing left but one final day
Perhaps we’ll meet again in some old-fashioned way

But it’s been hard going… yeah
Now I am going….
La la la la la la … yeah
Track Name: April's Song
A budding crocus
Through melting snow
The greenest eyes
I am to know

Watching puddles form
My soul’s forlorn
Sing strong April’s song

Snowdrops in December
A warm yet chilling rain
And winter doesn’t know her name

Well I’m feeling
Something’s missing
How I missed her
Freezing kisses

Come home winters cold

Sing strong April’s song
Sing strong April’s gone
Track Name: The King and Queen
We can play
In whatever world we create
Like and King and a Queen in a fantasy
You and me

Whatever this world brings
You and I can escape
We’ll bring along our dreams and our memories
You and me

We will weave
The threads of our blessed souls
Together together
Till no one can tell us apart
Track Name: Hold
Hold on to me
Take me in your arms don’t ever set me free
I’ll go anywhere you want me to be
We’ll go ride our bikes through the cities green
Just hold…… on to me.

Feeling so warm and right
That look in your eyes is holding me so tight
You want me to ask and I think I might
While we’re holding hands under the starts tonight
I’m feeling… that I think I might

Please say you’ll do
You love me baby and I love you
You write the words and I’ll sing your tune
We’ll all sing along do do do do do
Oh please… say you’ll do

Track Name: Raindrops in a Cartoon Sunrise
Raindrops in a cartoon sunrise
finally know what its like to feel what I’ve known inside
Its finally come together,
so warm within the shelter of my mind
Peaceful night of an island dream
shaken by reality on an easy breeze
And all I do is stand alone
and watch my stars disappear into the foam

Raindrops Sunrise
The most beautiful colored eyes To see clear through the ages
The all that is the knows no lies The shape of life it has no sides
And all I can do is stare with amazement

Well I packed my bags and I left that place
surrounded by familiar faces at my side
And though I knew not a name
I knew our hearts were all the same and feeling fine
Well home it never was the same,
and everything just seemed insane it probably was
All the fighting and the bickering,
the talking heads and TV screens they screamed

For many years now I’ve sought that beach
where the whole world it seemed at peace waves at my feet.
Only now I’ve realized
that we’ve always carried it inside.
A debt of gratitude is due
to all my friends who have carried on this sunrise too
Though time and space keep us apart
Like the Earth to the Sun we’re forever bound heart to heart.
