The Classic 07:47
The Classic by John Beccia with lyrics by John and Bobbie Smith She's tired of being traded for a newer model For one who's shinier and firmer on the throttle Something to be said about a fine old classic She's utterly and totally real......She's utterly and totally real You have to stand in line but when you finally see her Reminds you of a time when you were so much freer On her side the sign it reads "Just once in a lifetime" She's something that is sweet and so real,Something that is sweet and so real CHORUS Tailfins and chrome, a very soft recline You can see the fine detail Every curve is smooth and polished to it's finest For sure her beauty's not,for sure her beauty's not for sale No longer sits outside and gets left unattended Never to be left alone or be neglected No longer taken out upon the open highway Tired of the toll that she's paid..So tired of the toll that she's paid Lessons in our life, not always of our choosing Some are gifts, while others,painful and confusing Guarding all her travels and her destinations Power in the way that she's made.Such power in the way that she's made REPEAT CHORUS Next time that you think it's time to make a trade in Think of the old classic that is on display and Maybe what you're searchin' for is here before you Some treasures cannot be replaced..Some treasures cannot be replaced REPEAT CHORUS

Best I Ever Had (by John Beccia) Broken hearted.....live and learn Love departed.... no return I can’t help feelin’ oh so bad I’m losin’ you, the best I’ve ever had You were the best I ever had You were the best I ever had Stealing nickels.... dealing dimes Tryin’ to live in..... other times I just can’t help this.. being sad I’m losin’ you, the best I’ve ever had You were the best I ever had You were the best I ever had Empty pockets.....hollow heart How quick this world just..... fell apart I’m on the edge of..... going mad I’m losin’ you, the best I’ve ever had You were the best I ever had You were the best I ever had

Dreams Before They Die (free) 06:46
Dreams Before They Die by John Beccia So many people saying that we're crazy Nothing we can do will change the world All of us are dreaming of A future built upon our love A love that holds these things we're dreaming of We're dreaming of Time's a raging river rushin' right on by Got to reach out for your dreams before they die Time's a raging river rushin' right on by Got to reach out for your dreams before they die Every person has the power inside them To stand up for the things they think are right Everybody's reaching for The key that opens heavens' door The door that holds the things we're dreaming of We're dreaming of Time's a raging river rushin' right on by Got to reach out for your dreams before they die Time's a raging river rushin' right on by Got to reach out for your dreams before they die The human race creates it's own destruction So many different ways to end it all Got to stand up while we can Love in our hearts, sweat on our hands The hands that hold the things we're dreaming of We're dreaming of Time's a raging river rushin' right on by Got to reach out for your dreams before they die Time's a raging river rushin' right on by Got to reach out for your dreams before they die

When You Open Your Heart by John Beccia Do you see all the beauty around you? Possibilities wide as the sky See it all, don’t let it pass through you Seize it all, it all will come to you When you open........... when you open your heart There is power and change in each moment There is life in the tiniest leaf See it all, it’s taking and giving Seize it all, there’s reason for living When you open........... when you open your heart Morning warmness from the light in the skies Sun is rising when you open your eyes There’s a path to be made through this forest There is moss in the shade of the trees See it all, and touch it’s green coolness Seize it all, it’s wise to be foolish When you open........... when you open your heart Evening stillness in the dusk of the day Orange reflections, as sunset takes you away In the crack between daylight and nightime There are magical dreams to be had See it all, it’s there for the reaping Seize it all, it’s yours for the keeping When you open........... when you open your heart When you open your heart

Crazy Times (free) 08:15
Just when you’re thinkin’ .......you’ve got it figured out This feeling’s sinkin’..... as sureness turns to doubt Are we crazy, or do you feel sane It don’t much matter, we commit the same old crimes Caught in these crazy times (these crazy times) The ice is melting.....the ocean’s on the rise A hole is open.........so high above the skie We study things that we can never know Caught in these crazy times (these crazy times) There’s evolution...................in every living thing No real solutions......about most anything We’re just a speck here in this universe Exixtence is the blessing, and the curse that binds Caught in these crazy times (these crazy times) Too many people.....who want so many things Destruction’s real.............. it’s what this life style brings We take so much more than we ever give Is this the way that we are doomed to live our lives Caught in these crazy times (these crazy times)

Falling Star 03:45
Staring at the sky on an autumn’s night Seeing all the stars, how they seem so bright When you see the sight of a falling star Feeling kind of small with the way things are Feeling kind of small and yet so complete, Feeling kind of warm when our gazes meet You may be content with the way things are When you see the sight of a falling star Here I am again trying to make some sense Tryin’ to live my life in the present tense Searchin’ for the sight of a falling star Feeling kind of lost in the way things are Feeling kind of lost and yet so discreet, Tryin’ not to start what I can’t complete We are not complete when we are apart 'Till you see the sight of a falling star When you were a child, everything seemed long Now that we are grown how it moves along You will miss the sight of the falling star If you never look from the place you are Blinking of an eye looking back at you, Blinking of an eye and your life is through When your life is through you’ll see what you are When you see the sight of a falling star

Diablo Down (free) 05:24
Diablo Down written by John Beccia Thousands of people marchin'... marchin' along the beach We've got to raise our voices for the things that we believe We can't accept the risk of nuclear madness here in our town Marchin' into the canyon.....got to tear Diablo down Marchin' into the canyon..... got to tear Diablo down Shoutin' the words of protest.....Singin' the songs of love Hopin' to change this to somethin' that we're dreamin' of We can't accept the danger of nuclear waste forever around Marchin' into the canyon.....got to tear Diablo down Marchin' into the canyon..... got to tear Diablo down The greediness of the corporation Killin' our earth and sellin' our souls Two hundred-fifty-thousand years of radiation Will take it's toll-oh-oh Take it upon your shoulders.....Take it into your hands We've got to take responsibility while we can We can't accept the fate of radioactive poison around Marchin' into the canyon.....got to tear Diablo down Marchin' into the canyon..... got to tear Diablo down

I was so happy........ when you left me alone A wish that came true just ..........like a mortgage or loan I knew it was over.......when I was set free Now I’m left out on the road that used to be You might think it’s funny.......from this point of veiw I don’t know if I ‘d rather..... be me or you On new roads they’re building.......they now charge a fee And I’m left out on the road that used to be I know I seem twisted......like a leaf in the wind I feel like I missed it........like an emptied out bin Which road I should follow......is a mystery to me So I’m left out on the road that used to be I’ll make the best of it......no matter what comes I would rise above it.......if I wasn’t all thumbs With a plum on my finger......I’m crying with glee Now I’m left out on the road that used to be This life is a puzzle......a game played in time It isn’t because of......any reason or rhyme What once was the future.....becomes memory And I’m left out on the road that used to be I was so happy........ when you left me alone Soon I’ll stop talkin’.......... and hang up the phone Facing the darkness.......that’s in front of me Now I’m left out on the road that used to be

And when I fall asleep......my sleep turns to dreamin’ And when I’m dreamin’......... I’m dreamin’ of you And when I dream of you......I feel like I’m living Living my life in a dream......in a dream that’s come true Dreams of you.....dreams of you Dreams of you.....dreams of you REFRAIN I can finally show all of the feelings held inside I can finally let go of the tears that I have, tears that I have, tears that I have cried Dreams of you.....dreams of you Dreams of you.....dreams of you And when I’m living true......I’m right here beside you And when I’m here with you......... I want love to last I want this lasting love.....to be with us always To always be here beside you ‘til the day that I die Dreams of you.....dreams of you Dreams of you.....dreams of you REPEAT REFRAIN Dreams of you.....dreams of you Dreams of you.....dreams of you REPEAT 1st verse and 2nd verse And when I’m finally die...........I’ll fall into sleeping And when I finally fall deep into sleep......... I’ll be dreaming of you Dreams of you.....dreams of you Dreams of you.....dreams of you
