Track Name: Speed Of Life
In no time everything’s changed
You lived through it, but now it all seems strange
Amnesia or briefly deranged
Is this what they all call normal?

Now you’re in a new time and place
Familiar, but running a brand new race
What nut set this crazy pace?
You sure this is what you signed up for?

At the speed of life
You’re taken by surprise
Like bolts of lightening
Time flashes right by

At the speed of life
You’re taken by surprise
Like in dreams and nightmares
You wish you could fly

Stop, look, listen see where you’ve been
Time is now there’s no room for settling
Think it want it do it now
Your life can be well done some how

You hear a voice speaking in tongues
Gasping for air as if you don’t have lungs
Walking in circles night and day
Tell me there is more than just one way

At the speed of life
You’re taken by surprise
Like bolts of lightening
Time flashes right by

At the speed of life
You’re taken by surprise
Like in dreams and nightmares
You wish you could fly

Walking in your shoes
You wince at the pinch, the cut and the bruise
But at that fork staring you down in the road
You’ve got to choose

In no time everything’s changed
You lived through it, but now it all seems strange
Amnesia or briefly deranged
Is this what they all call normal?

At the speed of life
You’re taken by surprise
Like bolts of lightening
Time flashes right by

At the speed of life
You’re taken by surprise
Like in dreams and nightmares
You wish you could fly

Wish you could fly
Wish you could fly
Wish you could fly
Track Name: What's Going To Be Your Move
I know what you could use
A remedy to diffuse
Those deep lingering blues
You keep holding on to

Take a minute to unwind
Look in and you will find
A calm collected mind
That’s still in you

And when a pleasant surprise
Shoots you right between the eyes
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be your move

When the impact is hard
Catching you swiftly off guard
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be your move

Those fears you carry around
Were lost but then you found them
Lingering under ground
Back from the dead to haunt you

A closed sign is on your heart
Designed to keep us apart
Flip it over to start living completely


And when a pleasant surprise
Shoots you right between the eyes
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be your move

When the impact is hard
Catching you swiftly off guard
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be your move


Slipping slowly down into your quagmire of fear
Staring frozen stiff into life’s headlights like a deer
Where, where ya gonna go from here

If you stopped living in your head
Amongst the doldrums and dread
Packed up your present and fled
Clear of your past life

You could start with a blank page
Dream and create a new stage
With no cap on your wage
Let’s go it’s now or never

And when a pleasant surprise
Shoots you right between the eyes
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be your move

When the impact is hard
Catching you swiftly off guard
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be
What’s gonna be your move

Slipping slowly down into your quagmire of fear
Staring frozen stiff into life’s headlights like a deer
Where, where ya gonna go from here
Track Name: Getting Up Getting Out Getting On*
You brought me to my knees.
An eight count was due.
While bleeding from within,
I knew this too, I’ll get through.

Seconds, I failed to breathe.
Is that really what you said?
Perfect aim on your part,
If you wanted me dead.

I’m getting up, getting out,
Getting on with my life.
The best is yet to come.
I’m getting up, getting out,
Getting on with my life.
My right time has just begun!

I’ll recover from this.
Your afflictions won’t last.
A shock to my system.
Now my heart’s in a cast.

Our one plus one is done.
What was is now no more.
Walk it off, ‘cause I’m the lucky one,
Slipping out the door.

I walk with my conscience clean.
Confidant as I speak.
Fear and insecurity are what,
Leave you vulnerable and weak.
Track Name: I'll Take Your Word
That lingering question in your mind
Ever present, all the time
You search for answers, no answers come
Before you blink another day is done
And then you start asking again

Why when who
Will be the one for me
Now or then
It never comes easily
I’ll take your word
It’s all meant to be

Look both ways then I cross
Either way I’m at a loss
For words that won’t play evil tricks on me
To win the game I have to play by rules I don’t understand
And then I start asking again

Why when who
Will be the one for me
Now or then
It never comes easily
I’ll take your word
It’s all meant to be

Walk lightly to not break shells
Sit still while the confusion swells to peaks
Beyond where my eyes can see
Now watch and wait while I cross that line
That is only mine to draw indelibly

Why when who
Will be the one for me
Now or then
It never comes easily
I’ll take your word
It’s all meant to be

See I’ll take your word
It’s all meant to be
See I’ll take your word
It’s all meant to be
Track Name: My Moon My Man
My moon, my man
So changeable and
Such a loveable lamb to me

My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go but on

Heart on my sleeve
Not where it should be
The song's out of key again

My moon's white face
What day and what phase
It's the calendar page again

Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please
Take it slow
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please

My moon and me
Not as good as we've been
It's the dirtiest clean I know

My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go
There's nowhere to go

Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please
Take it slow
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please

My moon my moon my man
My moon my moon my man
My moon my moon my man
My moon my moon my man
Track Name: If You Care
How long can we live in silence
While we turn our backs on the violence
When will it be us who is crying
The time is now before we all are dying

Don’t you see it can’t last for ever?
Even though there are those that say never
Living high on the hog on the hill
As more storms droughts and flames ignite at will

But you can see it in their eyes
If you open your eyes
See the answers are there
Change what you drive how you heat and what you eat
If you care

If your home was on fire
What would be your first desire?
Imagine your kids cold and hungry
You’d go the distance I know so they won’t be

But you can see it in their eyes
If you open your eyes
See the answers are there
Change what you drive how you heat and what you eat
If you care

Is it ever OK to hurt others
All mammals, fish, fowl have Mothers
Walk in another’s shoes
And there’s no doubt in my mind
You’d rethink your moves

But you can see it in their eyes
If you open your eyes
See the answers are there
Change what you drive how you heat and what you eat

But you can see it in their eyes
If you open your eyes

See the answers are there
Change what you drive how you heat and what you eat

Change what you drive how you heat and what you eat
Change what you drive how you heat and what you eat

If you care
If you care
Track Name: Gather Up Your Nerve*
You took the time to tell yourself
Over and over again
What good things you’re not

You lived a life convincing yourself
Time and time and time again
I don’t have a shot

You surround yourself with followers
Year after year after year
That help connect those dots

You took the time to tell yourself
Over and over again
What good things you’re not

You lived a life convincing yourself
Time and time and time again
I don’t have a shot

You surround yourself with followers
Year after year after year
That help connect those dots

Are you tired of it yet now?
Are you ready to go get
What you deserve?

Come gather up your nerve

In a state of steady waking sleep
Dreaming daily on your feet
Questioning what’s real

In a maze of constant confusion
Turning, turning left to right
Fear you can’t conceal

Reaching for that noose around your neck
Tighter, tighter not today
You finally feel
You are tired of it now
You are ready to go get
What you deserve

Come gather up your nerve
Come gather up your nerve
Come gather up your nerve
Track Name: One Of These Things First
I could have been a sailor, could have been a cook
A real live lover, could have been a book.
I could have been a signpost, could have been a clock
As simple as a kettle, steady as a rock.
I could be
Here and now
I would be, I should be
But how?
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first.

I could have been your pillar, could have been your door
I could have stayed beside you, could have stayed for more.
Could have been your statue, could have been your friend,
A whole long lifetime could have been the end.
I could be yours so true
I would be, I should be through and through
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first.

I could have been a whistle, could have been a flute
A real live giver, could have been a boot.
I could have been a signpost, could have been a clock
As simple as a kettle, steady as a rock.
I could be even here
I would be, I should be so near
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first.
Track Name: Surekeeper**
It's coming.
That moment I've been dreaming of.
When it arrives,
I'll be thanking something from above.

They say I'll know.
Maybe even at first sight.
My heart will race.
I may not even sleep through the night.

Every step I take it lighter.
Every breath I take is deeper.
Looks like the sun shines brighter.
Don't let go.
Mind's made.
Sure keeper.

A yearning,
I can't resist with all of my might.
Time leaves my mind.
Only hint, is a glimpse of daylight.

Forget to eat.
Staying up later than I should.
Laughing out loud.
Falling like I never thought I would.

Every step I take it lighter.
Every breath I take is deeper.
Looks like the sun shines brighter.
Don't let go.
Mind's made.
Sure keeper.

Every minute,
Of the day, you are on my mind.
The picture perfect,
Play mate I've been looking to find.

Every step I take it lighter.
Every breath I take is deeper.
Looks like the sun shines brighter.
Don't let go.
Mind's made.
Sure keeper.

It's love.
It's love.
It's love.
Track Name: Truth I Dare You
Peek a boo
I can see the real you.
Peeking out
Behind your crystal moody blues.

Come and seek
Take a chance on this ride
A new day
To make the choice to not hide


Truth,
I dare you.

Tag you're it
I'm running in your direction
Simon says what?
Listen to your reflection

Truth,
I dare you.

Pick a card
Based on luck and senses.
Half & half
Put down all your defenses.

Truth,
I dare you.
Track Name: Heart Armor**
I was wearing my heart armor
When we first met
It was solid and sealed.
No plans to remove it yet.

Heart wounds were healing
But still on guard
Would I let you in
To my back yard?

Ready or not
Here you were.
With the kind of love
I'd been waiting for.

I was waiting just for minutes
On 84th and 3rd
For you to arrive
To exchange our first words.

Hellos and greetings
Then we walked on
Small gestures of ease
Even smiles were drawn.

All I could say is
Ready or not
Here you were.
With the kind of love
I'd been waiting for.
To my surprise
Ready or not
Here you were
With the kind of love
I'd been waiting for.

This set of eyes
Brand new to me
A fading past
What will I now see?
How long will this glance last
I was wearing my heart armor
When we first met
It's now been removed
With no regret

Ready or not
Here you were
With the kind of love
I'd been waiting for.

All I could say is
Ready or not
Here you were.
With the kind of love
I'd been waiting for.
To my surprise
Ready or not
Here you were
With the kind of love
I'd been waiting for

To my surprise
