Track Name: Touch Me
Sometimes we go too far,
There's no turning back now,
Walking the razors edge.
Giving more than we take,
Taking just what we need,
And needing to be close to you.

Touch me, come on and touch me,
Taste my breath inside your breath,
Hold my hand up to heaven,
Hold my hands to your heart,
Hold my hands to your heart.

Too much conversation,
So much self control,
So much excitation.,
Burning in my soul.
Too much confrontation,
Pounding in my head,
Shaking with sensation,
Drop the skin,
Drop the skin you shed.

I feel so much love for you,
I feel so much love for you,
Like the clouds to the sun,
Waters to the cliff,
Rivers to the sea.
Flowers to the fragrance,
Fruit to the trees.
I feel the above and below of you.

Sometimes we go too far,
There's no turning back now,
Walking the razors edge.
Giving more than we take,
Taking just what we need,
And needing to be close to you.
Track Name: Here I Go Again
Here I go,
Here I go again,
On my way,
Home another day.

Checking in,
Then I am checking out,
In my sleep,
These things I dream I need.

Here I go,
Here I go again,
Here I go,
Here I go again.

Searching high,
Then on hands and knees,
I pick up change,
A change I really need,

I see a woman walking down the street,
I’ll follow you if you will follow me,
There’s something more to this than cat and mouse,
A zip, a snap, off comes the silken blouse,
Here I go, here I go, here I go again.

Here I go,
Here I go again
On my way,
Home another day.
Track Name: We Are One
Have you ever stopped to talk to a stranger?
Have you ever stopped to look in their eyes?
Have you ever stopped to hold a little baby?
Have you ever stopped to wonder why?

All your dreams,
All your dreams are right in front of you.

Have you ever stopped to ask one another,
What the hell is going on?
Marvin sang that on the radio,
It wasn’t all that long ago.

All I see, right in front of me,
All I see,
This should never ever be,
‘Cause we are one,
We are one, etc.

Have you ever held a lonely hand,
Of a hungry person on the street?,
‘Ever wondered what they’re doing there
We all know there’s plenty to eat.

‘Ever wondered, all these cardboard houses,
And the people in mansions up above,
Have you ever wondered why bombs keep droppin’?
Will we ever learn from those before?

All I see, right in front of me,
All I see,
This should never ever be,
‘Cause we are one,
We are one,
We are one,
We are love.
Track Name: My Highest Nature
My highest nature
The secret is supreme indeed
Track Name: Lost in the Thick of It
Lost In The Thick Of It

Verse

There was a time,
A time we will never forget,
Our hearts bear the signs,
And speak out the truth of it.

All that I see,
Moments of grace in the night time,
Raise up our hands,
Lost in the thick of it,
Saved, love is the way.

I stood alone,
‘til the day once we all came together,
End of the crimes,
There is a force,
Feelin’ feelin’
Feelin’ that we all belong,
Feelin’ feelin’
Feelin’ that it’s just begun.

Now were sending out a mighty wave,
That I know will last forever,
With our voices louder than a storm,
It’s a thunder crack from heaven.

We will whip the wind with furies rage,
Till the rain cascades upon you,
As our numbers grow, hope turns to change,
What was before becomes new.

I feel….
(lost in the thick of it)
I feel…

Track Name: Photographs
VERSE
There are some faces that I've known,
There are some places that I know,
There are some graces I've received.

There are some faces,
There are some photographs,
There are some places that I long to see.

There are sometimes I feel upside down,
There are these moments I just breathe,
Pray to the stars, open up the faith in me,
Then I can only Be, This I can only Be.

CHORUS
There is a dream,
There are some photographs of you,
There was the time we spent,
In a happy ending.

BRIDGE
There is a man inside,
With a broken glass in time,
And he looks to find the feelings that he knows are for sure,
There is a face, thinking you;re wasting your time,
Though I see you've been weeping,
Growing older, growing love.

CHORUS
There is a dream,
There are some photographs of you,
There was the time we spent,
In a happy ending.

It's the love that sets you free,
It's the love that gives us peace.
Track Name: Falling, Face The Sun
FALLING, FACE THE SUN

Rain I know,
Comes down around me,
So easily floods through,
Forming deep seas,
This is the love I know.

Will it snow? Will I freeze?
Fortunes grows, like the fog at night,
Seize the prize as it turns to gold.. ahhhh,
And fly.

Give myself up,
Wash over me,
There you stand, heart in hand,
Where you go,
I go…ahhhh.

Overflow,
It all depends which way the wind blows,
There I go,
Once again the cup spills over,
Drown, inside your love,
I’m free.

Here I land,
Oh my precious one,
Hold my hand,
Rivers edge it calls,
I’m breathing,
So much feeling,
When you’re falling, face the sun.
Forever.
Track Name: Television
TELEVISION

Verse
I catch the plane and hurry home,
To watch the LCD screen glow,
So many options to explore, yet I can’t find my favorite shows.

Reality TV it rules,
The airwaves have replaced the school,
Drama, drugs, violence and laughs,
If I’m lucky I can dial in some sex.

Chorus
Staring (Television)
Glowing (Television)
All Night (Television)
Watching (Television)

Verse
Ever present, forces bringing, focus into view,
Talk show banter, Candid cameras, Applause right on the cue

Verse
There’s fortunes on the spinning wheel,
The fit survive, let’s make a deal,
The ad sales still pay for the show,
Attentions short, cut the crap, let’s go.

I bet mines bigger, it will even the score,
Yours is 50, mine’s 64,
Right, left, center, even in the rear,
It’s political surround, with my gaming gear.

Chorus
Staring (Television)
Glowing (Television)
All Night (Television)
Watching (Television)
Track Name: Jelly Filled Donuts
Jelly Filled Donuts

I gotta find me some jelly filled donuts,
I gotta have me some jelly filled donuts now.
I gotta find me some jelly filled donuts,
I gotta get me some jelly filled donuts now, now, now.

Gonna follow my tail to the donut store,
Gonna throw down and have some more,
A cup of coffee and the sweetest bread,
I’m a certified donut head.
Jelly filled donuts.

Gonna pick up my feet go down street,
Everybody wants to eat jelly filled donuts,
They think we’re all insane,
Pick up and go downtown, don’t call me lazy,
Might be a habit or I might be crazy.
Jelly filled donuts.

Pick up my feet, go down the street,
To the corner donut store,
Pick up my feet, feel the heat,
Gonna get me a jelly roll.

Jelly donuts, jelly donuts,
It’s so sweet.

Pick up your feet go down the street,
Get a bag of jelly rolls,
Pick up your feet go down the street,
Get a bag of jelly rolls.
Sprinkled with sugar, baby.

I gotta find me some jelly filled donuts,
I gotta have me some jelly filled donuts now.
I gotta find me some jelly filled donuts,
I gotta get me some jelly filled donuts now, now, now
Jelly filled donuts.

You bring the sugar,
I’ll bring the dough,
You bring the sugar,
And we’ll take it real slow.

Track Name: Raymond Powers - Mother Street w/ Video Link
Mother Street

All around this stormy city,
There are millions after more,
There are others who are watching,
They're so tired of being poor .

Now John, he drives a cadillac,
Has business in downtown,
Louise lives on the sidewalk,
With two children under toe.

He can't help but notice her shining face,
His judgement suspended takes second place.
And sometimes that something,
That special something takes our fears away.

Forgetting reputations,
John ventures out the door ,
Grubby hands are reaching out,
Reaching out, their stories getting old.

He can't help but notice her shining face,
His judgement suspended takes second place.
And sometimes that something,
That special something takes our fears away.
