The Lines 07:11
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

Without Love 04:03
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

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

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

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 credits

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

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

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
