Track Name: 2006 - Gloria
Today was another, another day on empty,
But I don't have a problem, anymore,
It's so nice and cozy, in this sunny-side apartment,
You open the window, to catch some sun,

Outside off the back portch, she listens to the music,
While drinking her soda, in the shade,
A taste of the summer, with the people feeling happy,
A song for a season, from a stage,

Do what you want to do, today, today,
Do what is best for you today,
But I'll always feel the same

In your,
Blues jeans and your sound of laughter in the heart of the afternoon,
Downtown by the ice cream parlor on a side-street walking with you,
Gloria,
The sight of your smile makes the day shine brighter,
Gloria,
You've got me feeling high 'cuz I'm so in love with you

At 12 passed the hour, we found a 4-leaf clover,
A wish amongst many, became so true,
One hand in my pocket, the other's on my shoulder,
I know there's a song I, can sing to you,

Do what you want to do, today, today,
Do what is best for you today,
But I'll always feel the same

In your,
Blues jeans and your sound of laughter in the heart of the afternoon,
Downtown by the ice cream parlor on a side-street walking with you,
Gloria,
The sight of your smile makes the day shine brighter,
Gloria,
You've got me feeling high 'cuz I'm so in love with you

Gloria,
The sight of your smile makes the day shine brighter,
Gloria,
You've got me feeling high 'cuz I'm so in love with you
Track Name: 2012 - I'm Moving On
You know it's hard to imagine,
And yet so easy to miss,
I'm standing right before you,
But feel betrayed from your kiss,

You sing of my love forever,
But I'm locked out your door,
You say that you love me,
But then you treat me so poor,

(Chorus)
Well I've had enough and I'm moving on,
Since you're so fast asleep,
When you awake I'll be gone,
Long gone

I've given all I could give you,
And you took what you liked,
You know I drew you a picture,
You tried to bury My signs,

You live a life in luxary,
And though I show up in light still you never see,
You call for peace and security,
And cut me off all the while claiming unity,

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
Knocking, knocking,
Waiting, waiting,
Time is passing,
The moon is waning

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: 2005 - Northern Star (acoustic mix)
I'm beginning to see all that I have found,
From the winded trees to the star lit ground, yeah, oh oh

I'm getting closer to you and further from me,
Baptized by kisses of light see them circling 'round like candles in the night,
Through your voice I can hear what sounds like a dream,
One by one consider it done take a minute or two just to know that you are loved,

Burning light burning sky all around my horizon,
Be my Light, be my Guide, be my heart my horizon yeah, my horizon, yeah, yeah

I feel the winds of change blowing through my mind,
So long since I've been gone on this journey abroad just to find where I belong,
But my love for you will never fade or die,
Each breathe that I can see getting closer to home combing through the mountain trees,

Burning light burning sky all around my horizon,
Be my Light, be my Guide, be my heart my horizon, my horizon, yeah, yeah

You are my Horizon, You are my Horizon,
Yes You are,
You are my Horizon, You are my Horizon,
My northern star,
You are my Horizon, You are my Horizon,
Yes You are,
You are my Horizon, You are my Horizon,
My northern star, yeah yeah
Track Name: 2007 - Gotta Break Free
Red leather coat,
Step to the pavement,
With Cleopatra eyes scoping around, the block,

Something found,
Gotta reputation to hold,
Never mind that picture-perfect pose,

Another shot for the paparazzi,
At first you don't seem to mind so much,
But now you've been there done that so many times,

You've gotta gotta break free,
Break free, break free,
Yeah, yeah

What once was a luxary,
Has seemed to slip right through your fingers,
No such thing as pri-va-cy,
Always someone around who lingers,

On a plane from Parin to Athens,
To an island of seclusion,
You hide, hide, hide away,
On a beach of restitution,

Another shot for the paparazzi,
At first you didn't seem to mind so much,
But now you've been there done that so many times,...

You've gotta gotta break free,
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Bridge:

You've gotta gotta break free,
Break free,
Break free,
Yeah, yeah
Track Name: 2009 - Dancing Blues (feat Rod Webb on guitar)
She walks in her high heels to an opposite beat,
At 3 in the morning, on a cold we street,
While hailing a Flash cab, in the misty rain,
The street light captures, her get away,

On a night in the big bright city,
On the wall of a billboard sign,
In between what's to have and have not,
Living large to pass the time,
Lives a girl inside who's hollow,
Even though amongst a crowd,
With a mask that's always smiling,
Just behind there lies a frown,

I've got these dancing blues like crazy,
I've got to work this out my baby,
I'm on my knees while the lights surround me,
I tip my hat while the world is burning

The sound of a whistle, from a distant train,
Awakens the moonlight of an afterglow,
She stops at the corner, of State and Bloom,
And closes her door now, as her night is through,

On a night in the big bright city,
On the wall of a billboard sign,
In between what's to have and have not,
Living large to pass the time,
Lives a girl inside who's hollow,
Even though amongst a crowd,
With a mask that's always smiling,
Just behind there lies a frown,

I've got these dancing blues like crazy,
I've got to work this out my baby,
I'm on my knees while the lights surround me,
I tip my hat while the world is burning

Guitar Solo:

I've got these dancing blues like crazy,
I've got to work this out my baby,
I'm on my knees while the lights surround me,
I tip my hat while the world is burning

I've got these dancing blues like crazy,
I've got to work this out my baby,
I'm on my knees while the lights surround me,
I tip my hat while the world is burning
Track Name: 2014 - Nothing To Be Said (acoustic mix)
Walking late at night no one else around,
There you are in my mind again can't seem to get you out, oh no,
And I see you again where we first met,
You were wearing a face that I'll never forget no,
Drinking you in from line of sight,
You were telling me something,
I was lost in your eyes,

There was nothing to be said,
There was nothing to be said

Getting lost in your kiss,
The street lights shining down, whoa oh, oh oh,

There is nothing to be said,
There is nothing to be said

Bridge

And you are with me where I go,
See the sunshine as it falls down to the ground

There is nothing to be said,
There is nothing to be said
Track Name: 2011 - She
She's got a beat that's all on her own,
No she don't need, no man to take her home,
She got no room for cheesy pick-up lines,
She's gotta reservation with me tonight,

She takes her time, she likes things sweet,
She got every guy and girl kneeling at her feet,
But she don't run away from the likes of me,
'Cuz I'm lucky so lucky for a girl like she,

She's got a new dress, to show off her style,
With killer teeth she says let's go another mile,
And all the while now I'm thinking she's too good,
But she does what she says, like I knew she could

No need to stress, her moves to impress,
So light and care-free, her motto is "relax,"
Some say she's perfect, well she just turns and laughs,
She just calls it like she sees it and leaves it at that, that, that, that,...

She's got a new dress, to show off her style,
With killer teeth she says let's go another mile,
And all the while now, I'm thinking she's too good,
But she does what she says, like I knew she could

Bridge:
Right or wrong,
I think about her every night and day,
Right or wrong,
I've got to admit I've not the words to say,
Yeah, alright,...

She's got a new dress, to show off her style,
With killer teeth she says let's go another mile,
And all the while now I'm thinking she's too good,
But she does what she says, like I knew she could
Track Name: 2008 - Living the High Life (feat Jimmy Reid on Sax)
On Monday morning you awake, to a knock upon your door,
No one seen, no one there, just a note upon the floor,
What's inside, you've not a clue, so you slit the envelope,
Folded paper you undo, you feel your heart inside your throat,

You're walking down the boulevard while the pidgeons fly away in fright,
Sitting on a fire hydrant is a man begging for a light,
It was only one week ago, you ran the risk of losing it all,
Now a quarter million later you find life has a funny way of dropping the ball,

You're living the high life now,
On the street, on the floor, and on solid ground,
You're walking in a top hat now,
Take the time take the things, you've never had before,
You're living the high life now,
On the street, on the floor, and on solid ground,
You're walking in a top hat now,
Take the time take the things, you've never had before

On Sunday morning you awake, by a wife who's still asleep,
She loves you more, than you know, and for her you'll always keep,
Keep your thoughts, keep your heart, on her everlasting trust,
Trust in peace, trust in what, what you know you've always got,

You're living the high life now,
On the street, on the floor, and on solid ground,
You're walking in a top hat now,
Take the time take the things, you've never had before,
You're living the high life now,
On the street, on the floor, and on solid ground,
You're walking in a top hat now,
Take the time take the things, you've never had before
Track Name: 2005 - Seeing You Once Again (acoustic mix)
Long is the road,
Can I find a place to rest?
Questions seems to levitate in flight,
Can I take another breathe?
Dreams torn to mend,
With my head against the ground,
You've got to catch this anchor in the sky,
Did I hear you make a sound?
You've gotta get this out you don't know why,
I see your comet in the sky

Here going into my head,
Why, I don't know what I've said,
Lost, everything's left undone,
Outside again, and torn to mend,
From seeing you once again

Seeing you once again

Heard is your voice,
My name escaping from your mouth,
Your contemplative aura's out tonight,
Like midnight oil amidst the flame,
Words floating away,
You gotta get back to the shore,
The ocean tide is forming what looks like,
A drifting bottle with a note inside

Here going into my head,
Why, I don't know what I've said,
Lost, everything's left undone,
Outside again, and torn to mend,
From seeing you once again
Track Name: 2011 - Yeah (feat Rod Webb on guitar)
I saw you walking on the sand with your drink in your hand cool as can be,
I felt the temperature rise as you looked in my eyes and came to me,
You pressed up both of your lips to my fingertips so secretly,
She dropped me dead with a kiss bang-bang into bliss like a thief,

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I think I've lost control of myself,
My heart, my feet have run away somewhere else,
And all I know is that you've robbed my mind,
My soul, my words into a sea of desire, oh

Caught you singing along to the song of a different beat,
As you're dressed to impress to move on through the sun of the desert heat,

Guitar solo:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Yeah
Track Name: 2006 - Paradoxical (acoustic mix)
With hands in pocket bare,
Hiding from the cold,
Wandering out somewhere,
Walking the streets of gold,

Remembering all that you said,
Meandering all the while,
Revolving through my brain,
Waiting to see your smile,

In this darkness here tonight by your side,
Breath this breathe of life,
In this never ending space here in time,
I'll be a friend to you, oh oh

And I can't tell you how many times,
That I've tried to you how I feel inside,
When you touch my heart and you touch my should,
We've got to make amends,
We've got to take this on you know,
And I can't tell you how many times,
That I've tried to you how I feel inside,
When you touch my heart and you touch my should,
We've got to make amends,
We've got to take this on you know

And taken by surprise courage would find its way,
A step to make an appeal trodden to maintain,
This darkness here tonight by your side,
Breath this breathe of life,
In this never ending space here in time,
I'll be a friend to you, oh oh

And I can't tell you how many times,
That I've tried to you how I feel inside,
When you touch my heart and you touch my should,
We've got to make amends,
We've got to take this on you know,
And I can't tell you how many times,
That I've tried to you how I feel inside,
When you touch my heart and you touch my should,
We've got to make amends,
We've got to take this on you know

With every breath,
Every touch,
Every sigh,
Every move,
Every laugh,
Every lie,
Every crash,
Every low,
Every fall,
Every turn,
Everything,
Ever to solve,

I see you name amidst the stars in the sky,
Maybe we'll be somewhere again,
Both you and I,
For all time

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: 2004 - Turning Upside-Down
I heard about your asking,
Asking what you thought of me yeah,
You had your salutation tapered your leather boots yeah,
You gave a good suggestion in asking me the question here now,
I felt your meditation giving me direction free yeah

Turn me in,
Turn me out,
See you're spinning me upside down

I found you had a problem seeing from the bottom line yeah,
It takes a special measure to see through all the censored lights, yeah,
You felt an inclination to make a preparation to see yeah,
You're saying what I'm feeling I'm feeling what you're saying I see now,

Turn me in,
Turn me out,
See you're spinning me upside down

Bridge

And so you go out to a party, dressed for the occasion,
There you are and there you know,
You had to steal the show,
Take your turn you're such a smarty, dressed for the occasion,
Then you're told to, you're told to go...

Turn you up,
Turn you down,
See you're spinning it all around,
Turn me in,
Turn me out,
See you're spinning me upside down
Track Name: 2006 - Reign of Love (acoustic mix)
I was blind, but now I see,
From New York to L.A. down to New Orleans,
Steppin' out, going world-wide,
Gotta gift of love going 'round that just can't hide,

Yeah you ought'a know by now,
Yeah you ought'a know by now,
That something is going down, down to the ground

It's a reign of love,
It's a rain of love,
It's a reign of love,
It's a reign of love

Now you know, just where I've been,
And you know you've gotta break away before get back in,
One more time, you've gotta song to prove,
Gotta break into your soul to carry out your groove,

Yeah you ought'a know by now,
Yeah you ought'a know by now,
That something is going down, down to the ground

It's a reign of love,
It's a rain of love,
It's a reign of love,
It's a reign of love

Bridge

And the thunder rolls, and the lightning strikes,
The darkened ground, into a flash of light,
Tell me what you see,
Tell me what you get,
Tell me what is love,
Lest I should forget...

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: 2005 - Because
You staring at me from afar,
The summer raindrops dancing down your windowpane,
And you pull me closer with your eyes,
And you've got me here and now tonight,

Because of you I've lost my sanity,
Because of you I've got this burning fire,
So lock me up and throw away the key,
I'm guilty of your love's desire,
Because of you I'm in the pouring rain,
Because of you I think I've lost my mind,
The streets are calling out your very name,
I've gotta have you in my life,
And I don't ever want to cause you pain,
No I don't ever want to drag you down,
You know this doesn't happen every day,
A love like this is seldom found,
I want to hold you in my arms tonight,
I want to comb my fingers through your hair,
I want to seethe faces that you make,
I want to whisper in your ear, yeah yeah

Love echoes out from the balcony,
The sunlight climbs out from behind all the darkened clouds,
While you tell me everything I want,
And you, give me everything I need

Because of you I've lost my sanity,
Because of you I've got this burning fire,
So lock me up and throw away the key,
I'm guilty of your love's desire,
Because of you I'm in the pouring rain,
Because of you I think I've lost my mind,
The streets are calling out your very name,
I've gotta have you in my life,
And I don't ever want to cause you pain,
No I don't ever want to drag you down,
You know this doesn't happen every day,
A love like this is seldom found,
I want to hold you in my arms tonight,
I want to comb my fingers through your hair,
I want to seethe faces that you make,
I want to whisper in your ear, yeah yeah
Track Name: 2005 - Break Away
Wake up early passed eleven,
In the morning pull your pants on,
Take a walk out, do your laundry,
Run to make up down the runway,
Listen closely to what is spoken,
Now intently now awoken,
Running favors from your pocket,
From your cornerstoned apartment,

Oh oh

Break away, break away, break away from the trends

Across the train tracks over shoulder,
They come walking even louder,
What's indifferent becomes fable,
Like the breadcrumbs off your table,
Watch the music on your TV,
See the latest pop star singing,
From a courtyard at a mansion,
See the people in high fashion,
They're in high fashion

Break away, break away, break away from the trends
Break away, break away, break away from the trends
Track Name: 2014 - Love As My True King
Late one night I was walking alone on the dark side of the street, yeah,
Thinking through all the moments in life that I could’ve should’ve done,
You know it never surprises me how many times I’ve fallen to defeat yeah,
By listening to the demons who tell me to give up,
But I’m gonna walk that walk,

I’m gonna tow that line,
I’m gonna throw out all the things that eat me up inside,
I’m gonna live this life,
I’m gonna stand and sing,
I’m gonna pick up all the pieces with Love as my true King

Yes I convey my own destruction,
When I think that I’ve reached perfection,
The moment I fall is the moment I’m tall in my own mind’s eye,
So I’m shedding my pride setting ego aside to live out true life,

But I’m gonna walk this walk,
I’m gonna tow that line,
I’m gonna throw out all the things that eat me up inside,
I’m gonna live this life,
I’m gonna stand and sing,
I’m gonna pick up all the pieces with Love as my true King

Bridge

We’re gonna walk this walk,
We’re gonna tow that line,
We’re gonna throw out all the things that eat us up inside,
We’re gonna live this life,
We’re gonna stand and sing,
We’re gonna pick up all the pieces with Love as our true King
Track Name: 2011 - I Think I Know You
I think I know you,
You look familiar,
I know I've seen your face before,

I know that perfume,
That summer costume,
I know that we have spoke before,

Don't let me get away no,
The music's right so let's go,
Dance to the music until 4am,

I've got a liking for your words, thoughts, and looks about you,
I've got a feeling this could go somewhere,

'Cuz everybody's having a real good time,
So hold me close to you and let us feel alright,
I just love to see your genuine smile,
'Cuz everybody's having the time of there lives...tonight

So glad I found you,
Or how you found me,
I swear that this destiny,

You've got that something,
That something I love,
I swear you've got the best of me,

Movin' your feet to the music,
A moment of fervant magic,
One look in your eyes and how I feel so free,

So unexpected meeting,
This' worthy repeating,
I've gotta feeling this could go somewhere,

'Cuz everybody's having a real good time,
So hold me close to you and let us feel alright,
I just love to see your genuine smile,
'Cuz everybody's having the time of there lives...tonight

Bridge:

Track Name: 2005 - The Next Plateau (acoustic mix)
Time is winding to a close,
And the end is drawing near,
Complexity haunts this life,
Can't you see, there is more than meets the eye,
We're running through the fields,
Where the thorns have pulled me down,
So I will ask of you,
To reinstate to the place on solid ground

To the next plateau where I can see my face in your eyes,
You freely reach for me with love in that I recognize,
To the next plateau where your sweet songs fill my ears,
You freely reach for me with love into this heart of tears,
This heart of tears

What kind of occurrence,
Does it take,
For me to be aware,
It always takes to long,
For me to see,
There is more than meets the eye,

We're running through the fields
Where the thorns have pulled me down,
So I will ask of you,
To reinstate me to the place on solid ground

To the next plateau where I can see my face in your eyes,
You freely reach for me with love in that I recognize,
To the next plateau where your sweet songs fill my ears,
You freely reach for me with love into this heart of tears,
This heart of tears

Bridge

I feel your love lifting me up to higher ground,
That I'd never reach on my own and my,
Horizons are expanding,
As I take flight...

To the next plateau where I can see my face in your eyes,
You freely reach for me with love in that I recognize,
To the next plateau where your sweet songs fill my ears,
You freely reach for me with love into this heart of tears,
This heart of tears
Track Name: 2010 - True Direction
In the sparkle,
Of the evening,
I look toward the stars in the sky,

On a stallion,
Riding westbound,
Searching for you far and wide,

In my head I,
See your photo,
And your voice is guiding my way,

Through the shadows,
Of the night time,
Waiting for the light of day,...

(Chorus)
Don't you see me here,
Don't you see me just dragging along,
Will you send me true direction

I can see that,
Your inscription's,
Carved in stone that's under my path,
As the wolves and,
Evil spirits,
Try to tick me to run off the path,

I will breathe and not fear,
As the sun is beginning to rise,
On this darkest of nights,...

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:

Oh, oh,...

Repeat Chorus

Yes you've seen me here,
Yes you've seen me just dragging along,
You have sent me true direction
Track Name: 2008 - Walking On Air
So high,
Solo,
In between,
For tomorrow,

Some cry,
Some don't,
Just to see,
How it goes,

Dirty deeds,
Dirty lies,
So to scream,
From behind their eyes,

Some they see,
Some are blind,
Summer fun,
And sum cold as ice,

Some fall to their knees, and pray,
Some cut down with words, always,

But I don't care 'cuz I'm walkin' on air,
I said no I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air,
No, I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air,
I said no I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air

Some fall to their knees, and pray,
Some cut down with words, always,

Painted roses,
Crazy queens,
Looking glass,
Is not what they seem,

Some they may,
Some they won't,
Some croquet,
And some like to smoke,

Tweetle Dee,
Tweetle Dum,
Nothing's free,
While out having fun,

Taste and see,
Starry nights
The Milky Way,
And sparkling dreams,

Some fall to their knees, and pray,
Some cut down with words, always,

But I don't care 'cuz I'm walkin' on air,
I said no I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air,
No, I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air,
I said no I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air

Some fall to their knees, and pray,
Some cut down with words, always

Bridge:

But I don't care 'cuz I'm walkin' on air,
I said no I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air,
No, I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air,
I said no I don't care 'cuz I'm walking on air
