Track Name: Side By Side
SIDE BY SIDE

If I had but one last chance
To put it all on one last call
Or to find a grain of sand
Or a place so far, so far away
What a strange coincidence
Two strangers in a stranger land
Eating apples from the tree
What will be is meant to be

SIDE BY SIDE
You and I, together
By my side
You and I, alone
Track Name: Velvet Sky
VELVET SKY

Undaunted sail, or no time to bale
It’s all, in your view, and conversation
It gets hard to say, as we go on from day to day
And it’s hard to lead the keel, you know, but...

Like the boundless sea
I hear you call to me you say, come to me, come along with me
In your VELVET SKY
You’ll always be my guide you know, that we’ll all soon get home somehow


A windswept bee, flies aimlessly
With no where to land no where to go
A sudden mystery, your direction lights the sea
And it turns and heads on home

You’re the northern star
I see you call from far away, come to me, come along with me
In your VELVET SKY
You’ll always be my guide you know, that we’ll all soon get home somehow
Track Name: Venus As A Boy
VENUS AS A BOY
(bjork)

His wicked, sense of humor, suggests exciting sex
His fingers, focus on her, he’s Venus, Venus as a boy

He’s exploring, the taste of her, arousal, so accurate
He sets off, the beauty in her, he’s Venus, Venus as a boy

He believes in beauty, he’s VENUS AS A BOY
Track Name: So There For You
If the sun, in the sky seems out of place
And the moon, fails to show it’s face
And the stars, in the sky fall one by one

Brighter days, are on their way to you
Lighter ways, will be soon
So for now, know how, it’s nothing new
I’m SO THERE FOR YOU

If the sun, in the sky seems out of place
And the moon, fails to show it’s face
SO THERE FOR YOU, SO THERE FOR YOU

And the stars, in the sky fall one by one.
Broken heart, calling out someone
SO THERE FOR YOU, SO THERE FOR YOU

Brighter days, are on their way to you
Lighter ways, will be soon
SO THERE FOR YOU, SO THERE FOR YOU

Track Name: Shelter From A Storm
SHELTER FROM A STORM

Sooner or later, we will open up a door
The innocent can be explored
You know, we’re on our way

Sooner or later, what new horizons will we see
In a clearing, there, with me
You know, we’re on our way

Like SHELTER FROM A STORM
keeping covered, feeling warm
Like SHELTER FROM A STORM

Sooner or later, we may be stranded out at sea
Whatever weather, what will be, will be
We’re on our way

Like SHELTER FROM A STORM
keeping covered, feeling warm
Like SHELTER FROM A STORM
Track Name: Smooth Operator
SMOOTH OPERATOR
sade

Diamond life, lover girl
We move in space, with minimum waste, and maximum joy

City lights, and business nights
When you require, streetcar desire for higher highs

No place for beginners or sensitive hearts
When sentiment is left for chance
No place for beginners, but no place to start
No need to ask, she’s a

SMOOTH OPERATOR
Coast to coast, L. A. to Chicago, western girl
Across the north and south to Key Largo, love for sale
SMOOTH OPERATOR

Face to face, each classic case
We shadow box, and double cross, yet need the chase
A license to love, insurance to hold
Melts all of your memories, change into gold
Her eyes are like angels, but her heart is cold
No need to ask, she’s a

Track Name: One Love Is Everywhere
ONE LOVE IS EVERYWHERE

When I look inside, it’s clear, so clear, to see that we’re together
Theirs no need to find the love, the love, it’s all that really matters
Love is here, and there
ONE LOVE IS EVERYWHERE

Take a look outside, it’s clear, so clear, the sky goes on forever
Theirs no need to find the love, the love, it’s all that really matters
Love is here, and there
ONE LOVE IS EVERYWHERE

In a million years, it’s clear, so clear, to see that we’re together
Love is here, and there
ONE LOVE IS EVERYWHERE
Track Name: No Way Home
NO WAY HOME

Just yesterday, it seems like she came from a world, so safe and cradled
Now she’s alone, with no chaperone, as she walks throughout the night

Bad luck today, the dice ricocheted, two black eyes, they gaze upon her
Now all she sees, a glazed sympathy for the girl, who lost it all

NO WAY HOME, she feels theirs no way back home

Done are the days, of plans for a way, to be free, to see, a future
Lost in a dream, meth-amphetamine, now she walks throughout the night

NO WAY HOME, she feels theirs no way back home
Track Name: Make A Plan
MAKE A PLAN

Let’s MAKE A PLAN, make a plan together
Hand in hand, I’ll never let you go

We’ll take the plan, take the plan to forever
Hand in hand, I’ll never let you go

In winter time, and spring time
And when summer turns to fall
I’ll be there, and you’ll be there
As sure as the sun does rise, and fall
