Track Name: The Lines
The Lines
by John Beccia

Please , don't you tie up the lines
Please, please, please won't you give me some time
Somebody might be trying, trying to call direct
Somewhere there's someone for me. Please call collect

So please, don't you tie up the lines
Please, please, please give me some kind of sign
Somebody might be calling, trying to break on thru
Somewhere there's someone for me. Could it be you ?

Once we were so lost in love, till it all fell thru
Strugglin' to say good-bye to love so true
This world's so cruel

So please, don't you tie up the lines
Please, please, please now I'm searchin' to find
Somebody to connect with. Communication, please
Somewhere there's someone out there waiting for me
Don't you tie up the lines


Please, don't you tie up the lines
Please, please, please, I'm goin' out of my mind
Reachin' out for somebody.Placing an urgent call
Somewhere there's someone for me, holding it all

Please, don't you tie up the lines
Please, please, please, this hurt is drivin' me blind
Searchin' for new tomorrows. See what the future brings
Somewhere there's someone for me, trying to ring
Don't you tie up the lines
Track Name: Without Love
Without Love
(by John Beccia)

Will you meet me when I come your way
Will you meet me at the break of day
Will you greet me when the morning comes
In the heat of what we think is love
For what is this life.......... without love?

I will wait until you finally come
I will wait until my days are done
Is it fate or is it circumstance
It's not too late to take another chance
For what is this life.......... without love?

Life is worth living when giving the things you can give
There's no forgiving for missing the things that you miss

Always question all the things we feel
Always question what we should reveal
We think uless it's something we can prove
What will be left of anything we do?
For what is this life.......... without love?

Life is worth dying when trying to find something more
There's no denying there's one thing that we are here for

Don't you turn away and disappear
Don't you turn away from what you fear
Finally learn when we can face the fact
The love we give is always coming back
For what is this life.......... without love
Without love.......without love
Track Name: Your Thin Disguise
Your Thin Disguise
by John Beccia

When you’ve turned and found that it’s the long way
That you can’t return from where you came
When you learn that you have gone the wrong way
There is noone else for you to blame
Each passing day will bring another new surprise
As you hide behind your thin disguise,
As your hide behind your thin disguise

Shed a skin with every changing season
You don’t know which way you wanna go
You found out, in searching for a reason
That somehow , you know you’ll never know
Each changing scene will bring a new sight to your eyes As you hide behind your thin disguise,
as you hide behind your thin disguise

Got a mask for every new occasion
No emotions showing on your sleeve
You don’t show what is the motivation
Any closeness makes you wanna leave
Like using formula to soothe a babie’s cries
As you hide behind your thin disguise,
As you hide behind you thin disguise
Track Name: Behind all the Tears
Behind All the Tears
(by John Beccia)

When you are losin’,
Losing a love you thought would last.
Though so confusin’,
You realize the die is cast.
Feeling lost and hopeless, as you confront your deepest fears,
You’ve got to dry your eyes and leave behind all the tears.

Like an illusion
That you can see but cannot touch.
That you are using,
Depending on one thing too much.
You can never measure someone’s ability to care
You just ignore the lies and leave behind all the tears

It’s the light, not darkness, that seems to blind us with it’s sight.
We look to who we are and we try to make it thru, make it thru the night

It’s so abusing,
When you can never let it go
It’s not amusing
If you believe you think you know
Why it ever happened, and yet the cause is never clear)
You’ve got to redefine and leave behind all the tears
And leave behind all the tears
Track Name: Woman Like Me
A Woman Like Me
(by John Beccia)

You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
You know a good man like you, gonna need some good company -y-y
I’ll help to rise so strong in the light...Then back into bed in the dead of night
You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
Gonna need a woman like me

You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
‘Cause anything that you want, I can give you so easily-y-y
If you need food, then I will take heed ...I’ll satisfy you with the things you need
You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me....Gonna need a woman like me

I’ll bring you back up, when you are down.... If you are lost, I’ll make sure you are found
The future looks good, forget what is past....I’ll give you a sweet love, and you’ll want it to last
I’ll give you sweet love that will last

You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
You know that love can be sweet, then sting you like a queen bee
The honey that’s love is inside the hive...Sharing my sugar keepsyou alive
You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me.....Gonna need a woman like me

It don’t matter where, the kitchen or hall ..... In spring or in summer or winter or fall
I’ll take all you give and I’ll give you my all.....And If you cry out I will answer the call
You cry and I answer the call

You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
You know a good man like you, gonna need some good company-y-y
I’ll make your head spin, out of control
And pull you right out of the deepest hole
You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
Gonna need a woman like me
Gonna need a woman like me
Gonna need a woman.
Gonna need a good good woman
A good woman to squeeze you
A good woman to please you
Gonna need a good.....good.......woman..... like me......................
Track Name: Color of Love
The Color of Love
by Geof Land

There’s a soldier on the sand in a faraway land, and he cries for the wounded and the dead
As he tries to recall if there’s a reason for all, as the sand turns a deeper shade of red
There’s a woman on her knees saying, “Please, God please, don’t you steal my man from me.
“Don’t let him die,” is her she plea to the sky, eyes as wet and as blue as the sea

Chorus
The Color of Love, the Color of Love.
Full as the earth and the sky above
The Color of Love, the Color of Love.
Oh, . . . . . The Color of Love

Out by a prison where the sun’s barely risen, an old man wipes a tear away
His son is standing with his love in his hand, in the magic of his wedding day
Down by the water stands the preacher’s daughter, and she whispers that “You are the one.”.
As her man slides a ring on her trembling finger, and it glimmers in the golden sun
REPEAT CHORUS

At the edge of the city, out of hope and of pity, a child plants a humblin’ seed
She knows no machine that can make such green, so she knows her purpose fills a need
Years from now, ‘neath the battered plow, we’ll hear death’s steady pace
We may be shattered but we’ll know what mattered was the color of our love’s embrace
REPEAT CHORUS

Track Name: How It Used to Be
How It Used to Be
by John Beccia

What’s with all this fightin’? What’s with all the fuss?
Why do we let little things so pesterin’ keep festerin’ inside of us.
What’s with all this yellin’ ? What’’s with all the crap?
All about how we never loved each other in the first place
and we just got trapped.

REFRAIN - How we just carry on in abusing you and me
Now we can’t base our lives on a love that used to be
How it used to be

Why are we still hiding..........from what we see through?
Feeling’s that we had have turned bad and the facts leave us so confused.
Why are we still trying...........to salvage what we can?
Guessing what we mean in the scheme of a dream getting out of hand.
REPEAT REFRAIN

What’s with all this crying? Living out these fears.
Caught inside this life of charade then betrayed by the falling tears.
Why don’t we just chuck it? Throw it out the door
Is it true that we would if we could, then we should never ask for more
REPEAT REFRAIN
Track Name: Chance to Take
CHANCE TO TAKE
(by John Beccia)

I hear the music playing, I see the people swaying
All for the moment's sake, another chance to take with love

I feel it in the air now, I see it everywhere now
No new mistakes to make, another chance to take with love

Please don't hide behind the wall of sorrow
Everybody's felt that pain before

The walls are breaking down now, as love grows all around now
It's just your heart at stake, another chance to take with love

The crescent moon, it rises to break down all disguises
There is no need to fake, another chance to take with love

Please down turn and run away tomorrow
Everybody's felt the hurt before

I see it in the making, it's right there for the taking
With only fear to shake, another chance to take with love

I hear the music playing, I see the people swaying
All for the future's sake, another chance to take with love
All for the future's sake, another chance to take with love
Track Name: Letting It Go
Letting It Go
by John Beccia

Even tho you’re so different..... We are all just the same
Caught inside the same fire....... In the heat of the flame
Though I swore I would never.....Make the same mistake twice
In the heat of the love is when the fire melts the ice
Letting it flow
Taking it slow
Watching it grow
Then letting it go

Though it seems it just happened....it was a long time ago
You were our little babies..... to always have and to hold
In a few years you’ll move on, to what the future will show
What other choice do you have than to just let it go
Letting it flow
Taking it slow
Watching them grow
Then letting them go

So when it’s there you should grab it.....Don’t you let it pass by
Cause the storm’s only calmness is when you stand at the eye
In the heart there is magic........ in the magic, desire
The desire for a love that’s at the eye of the fire
Letting it go
Taking it slow
Watching love grow
Then letting it go
