Track Name: The Classic
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
Track Name: Best I Ever Had
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
Track Name: Dreams Before They Die
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
Track Name: When You Open Your Heart
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
Track Name: Crazy Times
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)
Track Name: Falling Star
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
Track Name: Diablo Down
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
Track Name: Road that Used to Be
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
Track Name: Dreams of You
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
