Track Name: City of Brotherly Love
In the land between the Schuylkill and the Delaware
There’s a cloud of hope that fills the air
It reigns upon the midnight day in a promise that all will be OK
Under the watch of Billy Penn
We live our lives and then we live them again
So spend another hour in the city of brotherly love

A hot summer day in ’76
A group of Yankees made a devoted mix
You fought the vice of tyranny
In an effort to prove that all should be free
I lost the battle but you won the war
You hung together, so let’s explore
Another grand adventure in the city of brotherly love

Jay-walking, crowd stalking, the glamour of it all
Skyscrapers, Paine’s papers, catch the urban sprawl
Mixed feelings, your ceilings are bound to fall
Don’t fall away from me

A Broad Street day and the traffic is here
It’s time for us, let’s disappear
To South Street, and tell our tale – for the endings will never fail
Some look, but they are blind for a New Athens of the mind
Another grand adventure in the city of brotherly love

Celebrating freedom in the Rittenhouse
A friend of mine was singing out
It was banned and she became a victim of having too much fun
Caught in the rush of day to day, I’m left with only what I say
Philadelphia did you know that you are still the one?

In the land between the Schuylkill and the Delaware
There’s a cloud of hope that fills the air
It reigns upon the midnight day in a promise that all will be OK
Under the watch of Billy Penn, we live our lives and then we live them again
So spend another hour in the city of brotherly love
Another grand adventure in the city of brotherly love

Jay-walking, crowd stalking, the glamour of it all
Skyscrapers, Paine’s papers, catch the urban sprawl
Mixed feelings, your ceilings are bound to fall, but don’t fall away from me.
Track Name: Hurricane
Just beyond the skyline a silhouette
Forget your fears and hear the music that you got
A lunarly reminder, I am gonna find her, my little Xanadu
Living for the journey, escaping will return me to you, my friend

Thinking of Tahiti I'm in the mood
They force me to evacuate this latitude
American Samoa didn't you know-a that you were left behind
Maybe Caribbean days I'll be seeing

I'm gonna ride on this hurricane to the moon
Vacation station I will be leaving soon (in my balloon)
It's gone, but only momentarily
I'm gone, forever in eternity
I know, cause I've done it all before
I'm a hurricane

Swimming in a rainband in my head
I'm trying to get to that location, that's what I said
I heard about a hangout anywhere about a mile east of A1A
Barometer is dropping, there is no stopping me

I'm gonna ride on this hurricane to the moon
Vacation station I will be leaving soon
It's gone, but only momentarily
I'm gone, forever in eternity
I know, cause I've done it all before
I'm a hurricane

I'm in the eye of the wind
Open skies and I begin
Do not wait for me, it's too late for me, I'm gone
I'm gone, I'm gone

Yeah, I'm gonna ride on this hurricane to the moon
Vacation station I will be leaving soon (in my balloon)
It's gone, but only momentarily
I'm gone, forever in eternity
I know, cause I've done it all before
I'm a hurricane
Track Name: Sandcastle
I'll make a fantasy land in the sand, and label it mine
I'll be the king of the castle, and conquer whatever I find
There's too much to do, and so little time, everyday
We can either become the best that we can
Or get washed away

I'll be in my sandcastle
At best I can try to make my stride
My story, is endless as we are bounded by the tide

Sand shall act as my shovel and help me create what I see
Here is a wonderful oyster that opens for all to see
The sand is the air the storm is the night
I dare to compare because I can reach most any height

I'll be in my sandcastle
At best I can try to make my stride

You'll be in my company, cause I will find a way
To expand my palace, and I'll let you in to stay
Life by the water, we'll share them through the years
I'll make the most of these souvenirs

Sandcastle, sandcastle

I'll be in my sandcastle
At best I can try to make my stride
My story, is endless as we are bounded by the tide

And I'll make a fantasy land in the sand, and label it mine
Track Name: Yesterday's Tomorrows
The poor long for money, the rich want the after life
The wise solely seek serenity
A blessing in disguise is time, what we have left of it
So sleep in your head, or come with me

Dream as big as the sky
Watch and maybe they'll come true

The days that are left behind are gone for good
There is no turning back, you never should
It's over and I wouldn't if I could
At the moment, I'm alive, yesterday's tomorrows have arrived

The glass breaks inside me, beware the broken windowsill
You can't take it away, so give it back
I'll have to comprehend the nonsense from the agony
I hope that I am wrong, there is an end

Dream as big as the sky
Watch and maybe they'll come true

The days that are left behind are gone for good
There is no turning back, you never should
It's over and I wouldn't if I could
At the moment, I'm alive, yesterday's tomorrows have arrived

What an adventure this has been
What are the consequences now?
I wanted a lullaby, I wanted to see them cry
I wanted to have it all, I have it all, I have it all

A blessing in disguise is time, what we have left of it
So sleep inside your head, or come with me

Dream as big as the sky
Watch and maybe they'll come true

The days that are left behind are gone for good
There is no turning back, you never should
It's over and I wouldn't if I could
At the moment, I'm alive, yesterday's tomorrows have arrived

Have arrived
Have arrived
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
Daydreaming ‘bout the sky, so clear and free
Everything seems to have its day
Time and time again I try to find everything always in my way

Wishing I could learn the way to my own eternal frozen spring
But time is stretched too thin
And this is how it’s been for a while

Coloured hopes of quiet ambiance
Penetrate deep within the soul
Digging further into chaos I get stuck inside the hole

Wishing I could learn the trick to stay there
Its shadow freezes now
The concrete jungle calls, and I’m not here at all

And I can see myself so far from here today
Fly a thousand miles and I am on my way
Did you know the mind can conjure up a plan
That only you could understand
It takes you all the way and even more
And I’ve been there before
Track Name: Just Right
They say every guy gets his every girl
Boy that was news to me
Til you came along like the words of a song
And then you set me free
Could it be the way you smile
Or how you walk my mind for miles
But I know you're the one

All alone you occupy those neurons in my head
Something's happening to me
I'm dangling by a thread
I'm about to make the call
When caution says for me to stall
But this is what I'd say

You're just right for me, baby
You're just right for me
Maybe we could get together then you'll see
I'm all about being with you, let's go out and it'll hit you
You're just right, you're just right for me

Too afraid to find the truth, I think and hesitate
What if she says no to me, then what would I create
Summoning my anxiety, I pray and look at my decree
And think it through again

You're just right for me, baby
You're just right for me
Maybe we could get together then you'll see
I'm all about being with you, let's go out and it'll hit you
You're just right, you're just right for me

You like music so do I, let's dance away the night
We can make our poetry, just ask and I'll recite
When the winter carries us, I will hold you tight
If anything is ever wrong, I will make it right

They say every guy gets his every girl
Boy now I know that's true
So finally the question is if I am right for you
Surely you have seen me smile
And how you walk my mind for miles
But I know you're the one

You're just right for me, baby
You're just right for me
Maybe we could get together then you'll see
I'm all about being with you, let's go out and it'll hit you
You're just right, you're just right for me
Track Name: The Real Me
Trapped inside my other self
Terrified of nothing else
But being ruled by my social mind

I see the songs seldom heard
If you pass me don't disturb
I am here, please be kind

Do you know me, or am I a stranger
Can I show me - the true arranger
I don't have hostility or emptiness, I just wanna be free
So I ask, do you know the real me

Yesterday came and went
Gone today poorly spent
When you are gone, where am I

People go everyday
And they know what I say
Is nothing real when I reply

Do you know me, or am I a stranger
Can I show me - the true arranger
I don't have hostility or emptiness, I just wanna be free
So I ask, do you know the real me

Do you know me, or am I a stranger
Can I show me - the true arranger
I don't have hostility or emptiness, I just wanna be free
So why ask, do you know the real me

Trapped again without a doubt
One less thing to worry about
When you are gone, where am I?

Yesterday came and went
Gone tomorrow poorly spent
When you are gone, where am I?
Do you know the real me?
Track Name: Drought
I stayed awake for an endless summer
Listening for the pindrop rain
I tried to resist the needless confusion
Instead embraced the change

You know when it's falling
It's easy to hear
But it's not enough to simply notice it
A rumble, a darkness, a major change in scenery
Is only a mirage if we don't see

So watch it fall through the desert that we live in
Take the call to develop this oasis
Watch it fall and go away
Cause we're in this drought
Hoping the rain will fall again tonight

A cloudy night - the beginning of November
That's when the tempest did arise
For years I know, we were living in the past
But now the climate's on our side

These cycles are turbulant, it's almost civil war
With nature, that's why we're who we are
A good time is coming, there's peace within the clouds
But it's only a mirage if we don't see

It's a chain reaction, gather 'round
It's a chain reaction, gather up
It's a chain reaction, gather 'round

Let it rain, let it rain

But it's only a mirage if we don't see

So watch it fall through the desert that we live in
Take the call to develop this oasis
Watch it fall and go away
Cause we're in this drought, hoping the rain will fall

So watch it fall through the desert that we live in
Take the call to develop that oasis
Watch it fall and go away
Cause we're in this drought
Hoping the rain will fall again tonight
Track Name: Troubadour Song
Back in 1939, the world was in a different time
Not that different than it is today
That's when I heard about a tale that victory will never fail
Memories never go away

I remember when I heard them play
'Twas mid-September what a day
It's how we learned to live, how we learned to love
How to find a way to get along
A shot for you a shot for me, we'll be traveling through history
Learning right from wrong, our troubadour song

Well they crossed the sea to help them all
And they ended in the north of Gaul
All because that is what they did
So much for Sudetenland, they never could understand
How this became the battle that they bid

But I remember when I heard them play
'Twas mid-September what a day
It's how we learned to live, how we learned to love
How to find a way to still be strong
A shot for you a shot for me, we'll be traveling through history
Learning right from wrong, our troubadour song

Rain and shadows, we all look the same
Down here in the gallows who am I?
Is that my cousin across no-man's-land?
Never a reunion 'til we die, that's the troubadour song

Looking to the east, they're red for blood of ours
Could we be the bad guys in this game?
Aren't we all just children living out among the stars
For what it's worth I feel we're all the same

And a shot for you a shot for me
We'll be traveling through history
Learning right from wrong, our troubadour song

Rain and shadows, we all look the same
Down here in the gallows who am I?
Is that my cousin across no-man's-land?
Never a reunion 'til we die, that's the troubadour song

Yeah, and I remember when I heard them play
'Twas mid-September what a day
It's how we learned to live, how we learned to love
How to find a way to still be strong
That's the troubadour song
Track Name: Life I Could Have Had
Kid, I was 21
When I realized all the fun I missed along the way
Hey hey, Mr. 17
No that doesn't mean you have to plan out everyday

Trapped in the one way mode
With no exit road it seems you're stuck in between
And so, it's alright with me
Take a fantasy and live it out, that secret dream

I could've been famous, the LA movie star
The weatherman who'll botch the 7-day
Hooray, those fantasies bizarre
Sometimes I wonder oh-so-bad of the life I could've had

Dear, the me of 10
Do you know when I was plastered in this grand facade
My god, did I go too fast
Did I past the point of no return or did I blink

If I could only switch
Maybe find my niche within the popular crowd
So loud I would be with them
Get rich, again, and earn my way to fame if I'm allowed

I could've been famous, the LA movie star
The weatherman who'll botch the 7-day
Hey hey, well I can take it far
Sometimes I wonder oh-so-bad of the life I could've had
Sometimes I think til I go mad, of that life I could've had

Fame may have its drawbacks, just a bit
All that pressure just to write that hit
The mood is gone, the mood is gone, and I know, I know

Kid, I was 21
I'm the only one to live this life in which I made
I paid, but I still can dream
And so it seems I've got to make it big before I fade

I could've been famous, the LA movie star
The weatherman who'll botch the 7-day
Hooray, those fantasies bizarre

Sometimes I think, oh just a tad
That I may be a little lad
Who cannot stand the very bad
And thinks of what will make him glad

My current life is not enough
Or so I think I'll just be tough
But still think til I go mad of that life I could've had
Track Name: Wake Dilemma
Attempts to fill my void leave little hope for sleep tonight
It doesn't matter, but I'll try them all again
I think of all the times, I wish that I could just rewind
And get a chance, maybe make her stay

The one who got away
The one who made me say my true emotions
She's gone, but still I think of her
The one who made me smile
The one who took a while just to know me
A different story from a distant day
The one who got away

How did I end up here, I thought I knew just here I was
A failed adventure, but that's just how it goes
I'd like to quit this game, my life would never be the same
If only I could live another day

The one who got away
The one who made me say my true emotions
She's gone, but still I think of her
The one who made me smile
The one who took a while just to know me
A different story from a distant day
The one who got away

Memory, spend with me
Leave me a good one and I'll forgive you
Memory, depend on me
Leave me alone and I'll never leave you
Memories, memories, I have nothing else to say

The one who got away
The one who made me say my true emotions
She's gone, but still I think of her
The one who made me smile
The one who took a while just to know me
A different story from a distant day
The one who got away
Track Name: Crossroads
Trying to find myself
Don't know where I have been
Or where I'm going anymore
Struggling to define
What I have left behind
And what I'm heading toward

The world is quickly changing
The good is gone and bad won't go away
You don't believe your life will stray
But everything will be OK

9 a.m. Monday morn
Weekend woes, heart is torn
Here I am, time is stalled
Heading for Lindenwold
I see the sign. It intertwines the crossroads

Sitting at Lindenwold
Waiting for what's it called?
The path and the ticket to go home
It passes me suddenly
And when it is safe to see
I see I'm left alone

But fate and serendipity
Have another plan for me that's why
I never let my spirits down
Another one will come around

Staring out the windowsill
I run for miles just for the thrill
The trees and air survive the ground
But nowhere else can they be found
The scenery stares back at me from the crossroads

The winds have changed direction for the best
Every cloud is different from the rest
Well la, la, la

9 a.m. Monday morn
Weekend woes, heart is torn
Here I am, time is stalled
Heading for Lindenwold
A brief impasse
Before my status so contrasts with the crossroads
Track Name: Children at Heart
Try to imagine being a stranger
In somewhere you used to live
Travel around this phantom town
And notice what you've missed

Places come and go
Beware the work of art
That unfolds when you know
We're just children at heart

Try to imagine being a stranger
To someone you used to love
Whisper secrets to their face
And all you're dreaming of

People come and go
They've left before you start
Realizing that you know
We're just children at heart

Try to imagine a perfect life
Is it right before your eyes?
Happiness isn't difficult
But it's often a surprise

Love can come and go
Beware the work of art
That unfolds when you know
We're children at heart
Children at heart
Children at heart

Try to imagine telling stories
To pictures on the wall
Share your tale with somebody
Before the chance to fall

We all come and go
Join in or come apart
As we wander to and fro
We're children at heart
