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

CHORUS- 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
REPEAT CHORUS

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

REPEAT CHORUS-4 times
Track Name: Sail Away
Sail Away
by John Beccia

The day you met each other
The magic shone on through
It brought you close and now your love's still growin'
And when your memories take you
I hope you'll share them too
The moment that you met will show the way

CHORUS - Sail away, sail away
Your love will be your ocean, sail away
Sail away, sail away
Your love will be your ocean, sail away - (REPEAT INTRO)

Today you face each other
Commitments to be made
And now the key is just how free you make it
To hold love through the growin'
As changes come your way
Together you must weather every storm
REPEAT CHORUS

Tomorrow holds a vision
Of dreams you share today
And some will stay, and some will leave with livin'
And yes, love can survive it
Just livin' day by day
The future lies inside your eyes tonight
REPEAT CHORUS - twice
Track Name: From the Tears
From the Tears
by John Beccia

It's the way that life begins
The first moment that you're in you breath the air
With the mystery of the wind
You'll be comin' back again, it seems so clear
CHORUS- Clear as the dawn grows from night
Love will grow from the tears - (twice)

The first tears a baby cries
The first feeling in your eyes is simply fear
We're so afraid of growin' old
That everything we have and hold will disappear
Repeat Chorus


There are teardrops in the skies
As the clouds inside your eyes begin to clear
A little baby born can show
How a brand new life can grow from what you share
Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Rich Man Poor Man
Rich Man Poor Man
by John Beccia

If I were the rich man
Couldn"t walk the streets of inner city
I'd be scared of losing anything I have
If I were the rich man, I 'd be runnin'
If I were the rich man, I 'd be runnin'
If I were the rich man, I 'd be runnin'
If I were the rich man, I 'd be

If I were the poor man
I could walk the streets so free and easy
Never fear 'cause no one really sees me now
If I were the poor man I'd be clear
If I were the poor man I'd be clear
If I were the poor man I'd be clear
If I were the poor man I'd be

If I were the rich man
I would hide behind a thousand faces
Never lettin' any trace of feeling thru
If I were the rich man, I 'd be runnin'
If I were the rich man, I 'd be runnin'
If I were the rich man, I 'd be runnin'
If I were the rich man, I 'd be

Track Name: Even So
Even So
by Tyson Leonard

Friday nights, 1969
Efficient flashings through a nostalgic woods
Hemp fields, a dream untouched by modern Armegedon
It had destroyed the USA
They had forgotten to bomb this place, my home
Where all embraced each other's culture
And became your friends forever
Easy enough, easy enough
Never quite reaching eternity
With what oh I ask
I go to church and won't ever experience eternity
Even so, even so

CHORUS
We're all friends with each other
Grabbing hands the world is better
Looking above to be turned down further
But in our love we'll live together today

Friday nights, 1969
Efficient flashings through a nostalgic woods
Hemp fields, a dream untouched by modern Armegedon
It had destroyed the USA
They had forgotten to bomb this place, my home
Where all embraced each other's culture
And became your friends forever
Easy enough, easy enough
REPEAT CHORUS twice
Track Name: This Song is for You
This Song is For You
written by Mark Pierce with lyrics by Karen Lawhorn

I never wanted to be more than just friends
I never wanted to let emotions to get out hand
But now it seems like every time you're around
I want you more than you know, I try so hard not to let it show

I can't believe things have happened the way they have
I used to think you were someone to never count on
But now I see a change in you and in me
I'd give anything to spend the rest of my live here with you

CHORUS I want you, I need you, I know it's hard for you
To tell me want me, you need me too
And if I fall, I fall for you
Will I be alone or will you too
Admit how you feel, you feel

Don't want to put my heart out on the line, it's true
I think you know exactly what I'm goin' through
If there's a way to let you know when I feel
Without losing you then,
I'd spend the rest of my life telling you
REPEAT CHORUS

If finding out that we both feel the same is gonna
Scare you away, or hurt our friendship at all
I'd rather, keep on lying but I'm stuck without knowin'
Unless I let you know this song is for you

CHORUS I want you, I need you, I know it's hard for you
To tell me you want me, you feel it too
And if you fall, you'll fall for me
We won't be alone because you'll see
I'll admit to, I'll admit to
Track Name: The Game
The Game
by John Beccia


A man likes to think that he knows what he has
Believin' that he's in control
But as I've grown I've been shown, the changes come fast
And somehow it all comes and goes
Somehow it all comes and goes--

CHORUS Over and over we go
All just the same
Older and older we grow
We just keep on playin' the game
I'll just keep on playin' the game with you

The sadness of loneliness is so hard to take
Spendin' time makin' it through
There's so much to learn now from all our mistakes
And sharin' makes it all new
Sharin' it makes it seem new--
REPEAT CHORUS

Day or night, wrong or right, livin' and dyin'
We need each other right now
The future's in balance, there's no black or white
Can we really ever know how?
Can we really ever know how--?
REPEAT CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL
REPEAT CHORUS
