Track Name: Sunshine Of The Summer
I like to see the sunshine of the summer
I like to feel the softness of the breeze
I like to see the beauty of another
And feel it's power bring me to my knees

I like to hear the singing of the morning
And watch the dewdrop gather on the leaves
I like to see the beauty of the dawning
And feel it's power bring me to my knees

Chorus
Bring me sunshine in the shadow of the darkness
Bring me light in the hollow of the dream

I like to see the winding of the river
And watch the waters rising as they flow
I like the way the river makes me shiver
And carries away all the things it knows

Chorus
Bring me sunshine in the shadow of the darkness
Bring me light in the hollow of the day

I like to think of things that take me higher
And open up so many many doors
I like it when you set my heart on fire
And make me feel like I've never felt before

Chorus
Bring me sunshine in the shadow of the darkness
Bring me light in the hollow of the day
Track Name: Cool
Where, where's she gone
She's missin' all the fun the food the games the wine the rock n' roll the song
And all she ever does is say she's sorry
Never even tells us where or when or why she's gone

Chorus
She thinks she's cool but I know she isn't x 2

Did you see her go
Was she wearin' a mack, is she comin' back was she fast or was she slow
And all she ever does is disappear
First yeah she's gone and then she's here

Chorus

Don't you worry she's ok
There's no worry there's no way

Chorus

Where, where's she gone
She's missin' all the fun the food the games the wine the rock n' roll the song
And all she ever does is say she's sorry
Never even tells us where or when or why she's gone

She thinks she's cool but I know she isn't
She thinks she's cool but I know she isn't
She thinks she's the biz but I know she isn't
She thinks she's cool but I know she isn't
Track Name: I Still Got My Dancin Shoes
Gimme sunshine, gimme jive. Gimme reason to keep on keepin alive
Gimme rythmn, gimme grove
'Cause I still got my dancin shoes

Gimme laughter, gimme joy. Gimme inspiration to employ
Gimme movement, let me choose
'Cause I still got my dancin shoes

And my shoes they dance for only me
And my shoes they're special can't you see

Gimme sunshine, gimme jive. Gimme reason to keep on keepin alive
Gimme rythmn, gimme grove
'Cause I still got my dancin shoes
Track Name: If We Meet Again
If we meet again will you look in my direction
Will you say
That you knew me when I knew about affection
One day
Or will you do what I know you can do
Will you hide all those feelings inside you
If oh if we meet again

If we meet again should I act as if I knew you
Should I say
That I knew you when I thought I could get right to you
One day
Or should I do what I know I can do
Should I hide all the feelings I had for you
If oh if we meet again

Cause everything was alright, everything was so good
Every day seemed so bright
And we were the people in the neighborhood

If the world should end do I reach out to you
Do I say
That I knew you when I thought I could get right to you
One day
Or should I do what I know I can do
Should I hide all the feelings I had for you
If oh if we meet again

Cause everything was alright, everything was so good
Every day seemed so bright
And we were the people in the neighborhood
Track Name: Sweet Futility
Wouldn't it be great if we all owned our own time
And wouldn't it be great if we were free
And wouldn't it be great if we could see tomorrow
Ah sweet futility

But all I have is here and now
And it's you
But all I have is here and now
And it's you

And isn't it great that we appreciate time
And that we know we're not free
Storing up today to lose it all tomorrow
Ah sweet futility

And all I have is here and now
And it's you
And all I have is here and now
And it's you
Track Name: How It Ever Came To Be
Hey as we sit here on the sofa
Hey as we sit by the TV
I wonder how it ever happened
I wonder at it all
I wonder how it ever came to be

Hey as we gaze into each other
Hey as we gaze into our dreams
I think to myself what a wonderful world
I think to myself oh yeah what a girl
I think to myself how it ever came to be

And if there's ever a moment
when things aren't looking so good
We try to get it together
Just like we should

Hey will you do the light fandango
Hey will you dance the merry way
Will you wait for me by the apple tree
Will you be my month of May
Will you sing for me whenever I'm away
Track Name: Is It Not The Same
Do you feel the loneliness
Do you feel the pain
Can you feel the darkness comin' up again
Can you feel the wilderness
Closin' all around
Can you hear the people say
Girl you're goin' down

Or is it not the same for me as for you
Don't you feel the fear
That I feel too
Is there a memory
In everything you do
Why oh why oh why oh why
Can't I be with you

Lonely people everywhere
Always on their own
Never goin' nowhere got no place they call home
Lookin' for one thing
Lookin' for love
Lookin' for the one thing
That I did not think of

Or is it not the same for me as for you
Don't you feel the fear
That I feel too
Is there a memory
In everything you see
Why oh why oh why oh why
Won't you follow me
Track Name: Sorry
Sorry I didn't know what to say to you
Sorry I couldn't be there beside you
You cried when you heard the news

Sorry I couldn't stay on the telephone
Sorry I didn't know you were all alone
You screamed when you heard the news

And it goes on regardless
And it goes on just like before

Hey you know the world can sometimes leave you down
It doesn't get much easier if there's nobody around

Hey you know Billy Joe is doin' very well
Told me so a week ago but told me not to tell

But it goes on regardless
And it goes on just like before

Sorry I didn't know what to say to you
Sorry I couldn't be there beside you
You cried when you heard the news
Track Name: Falling In Love Again
I have seen things that I know many others see
I have seen sunshine and rain
But the touch of your hand makes me forget everything
Oh oh oh oh oh I'm fallin' in love again

I have felt things that I know many others feel
I have felt joy and pain
But the sound of your voice makes me forget everything
Oh oh oh oh oh I'm fallin' in love again

Chorus
And this time everything's alright
And this time it's ok
And this time I know that things are getting better by the day

Picture if you will a world standing still
A world where everything's the same
But even so I still feel the thrill
Cause oh oh oh oh oh I'm fallin' in love again

Chorus
And this time everything's alright
And this time it's ok
And this time I know that things are getting better by the day
Track Name: I Believe
You're thoughtless and you're callous, you're cruel and naive
But I guess you're really not all that bad, I Believe
Well I'm soft and I'm gentle, I'm quiet as a breeze
But I'll take you on any time, I Believe

Chorus
I believe in you and me
I believe we can be

You take away ambition, you take away my dreams
But I guess you don't know it, I Believe
You kill me with your smile and you kill me when you tease
But I guess you don't mean it, I believe

Chorus

You search for a little happiness you try to get some sleep
You know that loves the answer, yes I believe
Well I plough the lonely furrow and I walk the lonely streets
And all I know is that I think I believe

Chorus

I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you and me
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe we can be

Chorus
