Track Name: Vision For Better Times
Vision For Better Times


someone’s lost down around Miss America
someone’s tossed out a window in time
someone’s lost on a mission a vision for better times

someday you’re gonna pay for the mess you made
someday you’re gonna pay for your crime
someday you’re gonna give me my vision for better times
vision for better times
a vision for better times

someday you’ll find a way to be understood
someday you’ll find a real big star
someday you’ll come and wake up your vision for better times

cause someone’s lost at a cost of an episode
someone’s lost all their reason inside
someone’s lost on a mission a vision for better times
vision for better times
a vision for better times
Track Name: Wings of a Love
Wings of a Love

we all know
that love will call
yeah love will fall upon us
given time, it will find, us all, one day

and we all know
we love to fall
we love it all around us
given time, we all try, to fly away

on the wings of a love
we’ll be taken away in urgency
wings of a love, we will fly, we will fly
on the wings of a love
we’ll be takin’ it all so seriously
wings of a love, we will fly, we will fly

hearts are sold
to young and old
and bought by those around us
given time, we all try, to find a way

and we all know
we love to fall
we love it all around us
given time, we all try, to fly away

on the wings of a love
we’ll be taken away in urgency
wings of a love, we will fly, we will fly
on the wings of a love
we’ll be takin’ it all so seriously
wings of a love, we will fly, we will fly
Track Name: What's Goin' Down?
What's Goin' Down?

your investment with honesty
seems it’s gone with the wind
payed a price for security
now it’s all sinkin’ in

all alone with your coração.
something found ‘round the bend?
what possessed you to, come to see?
how this story will end.

just, do what your told
any fool knows this stories old
what’s goin’ down? what’s goin’ down?

passing glances with morning tea
nothing much to be said
heading off for security
while it’s all fallin’ dead

so you try to get by
holding back with the tears, don’t cry
what’s goin’ down? what’s goin’ down?

so what’s left of the family tree?
all the leaves turnin’ red?
was it worth the security?
now you lie, in your bed

all alone with your coração.
something found ‘round the bend?
what possessed you to, come to see?
how this story will end.

so you do what you can
holding on to another hand
what’s goin’ down? what’s goin’ down?
Track Name: Nothin' Better
Nothin' Better

in our love, theirs no fear, with our vow we kept it clear
still it’s hard, just to see it from afar

alright, you win, I’ll just take it on the chin
you know, I can’t live without you

and in the evening, when lights are low
I can see you baby, your hearts aglow
and when I touch you, and hold you tight
you know theirs nothing better in life, nothing better in life, than you

give it time, for the day, when I take you far away
to the sound, of forever all around

ok, you win, I guess lovin’ you ain’t no sin
you know, we go down to heaven

and when I touch you, it makes me sigh
you know I love you baby, it ain’t no lie
when we’re together it feels so right
you know theirs nothing better in life, nothing better in life, than you

when were together, we both can see
we’re on a secret journey, just you and me
and when I touch you, and hold you tight
you know theirs nothing better in life, nothing better in life, than you
nothing better in life, than you, than you, than you
Track Name: Yella Umbrella
Yella Umbrella

hear the rain, tumblin’ down
makes that funny sound
while underneath, the yella umbrella

and the rain’s, all around
dancin’ on the ground
while underneath, the yella umbrella

though the sun is gone
it’s just left on a holiday
all we need is love
the love we have today

in the rain we’re stumblin’ round
with the love we found
while underneath, the yella umbrella
Track Name: Everlasting Star
Everlasting Star

up in the sky
a new place everytime
she will appear
stepping out from a cloud

gathering all
of the stars everywhere
she will appear
with her hands out to me

You are, you are, an Everlasting Star
intricately, you’re shining

and if I cry
every once in a while
she’ll dry the tears
lift the fears, if they’re found

and in the times
when you lie by my side
deep in your eyes
their is love, only love
Track Name: Here We Go Now
Here We Go Now

Here we go now, Follow our vow
Dawns a new beginning
Sun or cloud reigns love aloud

Here we go now, Follow our vow
Take my hand together
we’ll find the way our love won’t stray

Though the path we take may be the long one
All that really matters is our love
Track Name: Endless
Endless

hold the light together
thru the night forever
reveal the path of this endless love

here for every season
circumstance or reason
know i will be there

secrets, untold
something our love knows
from above

seasons, unfold
like the tide goes
endless love

like a wind unbroken
carry words unspoken
to places that reside in our love

by your side forever
nothing whatsoever
will end this love this endless love
Track Name: Unbroken Sorrow
Unbroken Sorrow

hold on, know it won’t be long,
‘till tomorrow

although, you and I must go,
through the sorrow

tomorrow, we’ll hold that day.

now we know, it’s time to say our goodbyes
don’t let go, hold the dream we’ll survive
‘till tomorrow, Unbroken Sorrow


We know, that our love will grow,
by the hour

although, you and I must go,
through the sorrow

tomorrow, we’ll hold that day.

now we know, it’s time to say our goodbyes
don’t let go, hold the dream we’ll survive
‘till tomorrow, Unbroken Sorrow
