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
Maybe you will catch that shooting star

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

(Instrumental)

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
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: Andrew Hink - City of Brotherly Love
In the land between the Schuylkill and the Delaware there's a cloud of hope that fills the air
It rains upon the midnight day, in a promise that all will be ok
Under the watch of Billy Penn we live our lives and we live them again
So spend another hour in the city of brotherly love

A hot summer day in '76, some 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

J-walking, crowd stalking, the glamour of it all
Skyscrapers, newspapers, 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 tales, for the endings will never fail
Some look, but they are blind - for a new Athens of the mind
Spend another hour in the city of brotherly love

(Instrumental)

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 rains upon the midnight day, in a promise that all will be ok
Under the watch of Billy Penn we live our lives and we live them again
So spend another hour in the city of brotherly love

J-walking, crowd stalking, the glamour of it all
Skyscrapers, newspapers, catch the urban sprawl
Mixed feelings, your ceilings are bound to fall, don't fall away from me
Track Name: Andrew Hink - Beer is My Cake Tonight
So I said "Let's celebrate!" for things that help us get by,
Like the madness that came to this
They didn't even know it was my birthday,
We celebrated anyway

Go ahead, I'm the joke, but at least we're all having fun
You're the bear, my brother,
So teach me how to keep them from hunting me
I'd getting older, can't you see?

What ever happened to my age?
You never believed me in this phase, but I'm in the mood and that's okay
For a night the plan is no mistake, it's alright, the fun will never break
'Cause beer is my cake tonight

(Instrumental)

The bakery is closed and all the stores are gone
We had to open up the second plan
At times like these, who knows, 'cause no one understands
For a night each year we'll disappear and have a holiday

Twenty-one is a number like sixty-five or seventeen
Roll the dice, watch 'em roll
I've gambled my Algebra one last time
My hands are danglin' on the line

What ever happened to my age?
You never believed me in this phase, but I'm in the mood and that's okay
For a night the plan is no mistake, it's alright, the fun will never break
'Cause beer is my cake tonight, 'cause beer is my cake tonight
Track Name: Delmar - Seven Days (All Because)
Seven Days
Every single time we part, I can feel my heart break a little
You can make me feel despair, maybe hope, or somewhere in the middle
Could it be the battles that we faced
The oceans crossed, the measures lost, we found with each embrace

All because of you

Seven days and here we are: not quite love, but not quite time to worry
The past is only where it's been, the time is now, but I'm not in a hurry
The people rush the tempo of their song
It goes to fast, it fails to last and I know why it's wrong

All because of you

Seven days and here we are, here we are
Seven days and here we are

(Instrumental)

And every single time we part, I can feel my heart break a little
Track Name: Delmar - 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, but 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 lay in 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
My story, is endless as we are bounded by the tide

You'll be in my company, cause I will find a way
To expand my palace, and I'll let you in to stay
A 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: Delmar - Song in a Song in a Song
Funny how in tough times the whole world can get out of tune
You need a mental relaxer, you know the trouble doubles too soon
We've had dreams within dreams, seen shows within shows
What does it mean? Hell, nobody knows
For the one joy in life we can all sing along is a song in a song in a song

I think I found a solution, the key of G is where I start it all
I'm thinking about a song I wrote, it's simple and the words are going to fall.... off the page
You've heard lies within lies in a story or two
It's no surprise what good music can do
For the one joy in life we can all sing along is a song in a song in a song

Silly Sally the serenader - go ahead if you want to hate her
But I love how she sings, I love how it rings for me, he he he
Flute loops and a bucket of notes, she can't hold a tune when she opens her throat to sing

Imagine a world when you wish upon a guitar and it doesn't come true
The weapons of brass destruction are left to lie and never be used
There's no battle of the saxes, tuba diving on the street; thank god there's a place where good music can meet
For the one joy in life we can all sing along is a song in a song in a song

(instrumental)
Flute loops and a bucket of notes, she can't hold a tune when she opens her throat to sing

Funny how in tough times the whole world can get out of tune
You need a mental relaxer, you know the trouble doubles too soon
We've had dreams within dreams, seen shows within shows
What does it mean? Hell, nobody knows
For the one joy in life we can all sing along is a song in a song in a song

For the one joy in life we can all sing along is a song in a song in a song
