Since Yesterday by John Beccia When we were young and growing up We never thought of our age Drinking the overflowing cup All of the world our stage CHORUS - It's been a long, long time since yesterday So much has come and gone All of the dreams just pass away And leave us to just grow on They leave us to just grow on We played the partners of the dance Love we thought we could hold We never really stood a chance 'Cause everything just grows old Repeat Chorus I felt the passion of your touch I felt the heat of night Living for that sweet moment's rush When everything seems so right Repeat Chorus The different directions life can take So little we really know So many corrections of mistakes But backwards we never go Repeat Chorus - twice They leave us to just grow on They leave us to just grow on

Lonely Sky (free) 06:40
The Lonely Sky by John Beccia Everybody's gone, the party's over Morningtime has come, you're feelin' sober Thinkin' what is done as all the tears are falling from your eyes All the deepest fears you held, they came true Alcohol, it rules the hell that made you hurt your one and only, crying here under the lonely sky CHORUS - Crying......Crying...... You hurt your one and only, crying here under the lonely sky Crying......Crying...... You hurt your one and only, crying here under the lonely sky Why does every little thing upset you Feeling like the world is out to get you Abuse is never cured, and all the pain you have endured won't die You're the victim of the hand that struck you Hate is like a parasite that sucks You hurt your one and only, crying here under the lonely sky REPEAT CHORUS She has always been right there beside you Still you can't escape the pain inside you So obvious the reasons are you've always known exactly why Now your hear the screaming of this silence And you know the consequence of violence Try to break the cycle of this craziness before you die REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

Sharing Our Lives by John Beccia Love's a beautiful feeling Your life comes alive, the days fly, and your head gets to reeling It opens your heart to the secrets the world is revealing Head over heels, you just fall with the magic of love The magic of love CHORUS-You.................., you warm the coldest night You bring the morning's light Make everything so right You know it's so right Sharing our lives Time brings changes and growing The summer soft breeze turns to winter's cold wind and keeps blowing You never believe where it leaves you, or where you'll be going I know a way through the everyday mystery of life This mystery of life REPEAT CHORUS Sharing our lives Sharing our lives

Losing You Love by John Beccia I'm losing your love, Theres no sense denying, there's no use in crying at all I'm losing your love, There's no need consoling as we try to roll with the fall Guess we almost made it, now I feel it fading with time..........ti...i...me Chorus I'm losing your love. I'm losing your love (I-I-I'm losing, I-I-I'm losing) I'm losing your love. I'm losing your love (I-I-I'm losing, I-I-I'm losing) I'm losing your love I'm losing your love, Once it satisfied us, now we're mystified with the change I'm losing your love, I look toward tomorrow and I just see sorrow and pain There's no explanation, just a hesitation to go-o.......o - o - o Repeat Chorus I'm losing your love, How the fears all surface without any purpose to give I'm losing your love, Now the ghosts remind us That what's left behind us still lives With the past returning, now my heart is burning within.............i - i -in Repeat chorus

No Other Woman by John Beccia & D.A. Foxworthy She was standin' at the door in her hand a forty-four Wavin', sayin',"You can't have no other other woman but me" You can't have no woman but me Hear me, lover No other woman ever gonna set you free She took several steps inside, and with a high quick-firing voice Breakin', shakin', "You didn't leave me no choice,didn't leave me no choice" You can't have no woman but me Hear me, lover No other woman ever gonna climb your tree Refrain Every time I see you comin' runnin' after me I fall right down upon the ground, upon my bended knees I start my prayin' sayin' "baby, have mercy on me." "Oh plea-ea-ea-ease!" She took several shots inside,and with my deathbed dyin' voice Breakin' sayin',"You didn't give me no choice, didn't give me no choice" I can't have no woman but you Hear me, lover No other woman No woman comin' No other woman ever does the things you do-o-o

It's So Clear by John Beccia It's so clear, my love..........we used to see the stars above I used to reach out for your love..........Then good-bye It's so clear, my love..........we used to see the skies above I'd see it in your eyes, my love..........Then good-bye REFRAIN - It was so close Now so far away Day passes day after day It's so clear, my love..........we used to see the moon above Knew I'd be with you soon, my love..........Then good-bye REPEAT REFRAIN It's so clear, my love..........It's happened times before, my love To think I would've swore by love.......... Then good-bye Then good-bye Then good-bye-ye-ye-ye (4 times)

Proletariat Fight Song (free) 05:11
Proletariat Fight Song by John Beccia CHORUS - We must be strong to carry it on It takes you so long when changing right from what's wrong We cannot hide, we must now decide To join in the fight of changing wrong into right The men who have the money are the ones who write the laws The law's designed to keep the rich man rich, and poor man poor The poor men must see thru it, and take each others hand And join the fight to have the right to protect and love the land REPEAT CHORUS The men who serve our country are dying overseas In foreign places, with our leaders saying "We're there to keep the peace." But everyone knows better, we fight to protect our wealth Young men die,and I wonder why they die for someone else REPEAT CHORUS (Chorus and last verse sung simultaneaously) Let's take the money for the bombs, and feed a hungry world Let's make the powermen take blame for the wrongs that have occurred The answer's in your heart, my friend, the power's in your love To all unite, and change this life into one that we're proud of REPEAT CHORUS-twice

On the Rise 07:39
On the Rise by John Beccia We're on the rise, honey We're on the rise Thought love was gone but it's back on the rise Quite a suprise, lover Quite a suprise Thought love was gone but it's back on the rise We used to be oh so happy So tell me where are we now? It's in the skies, sunny It's in the skies Thought love was gone but it's back on the rise We used to be so scared of living So afraid of losing ourselves There's always need of forgiving We grow as we go thru this hell But sun's on the rise, Morning sun's on the rise It's all about lovin, we're on the rise We're on the rise, honey We're on the rise Thought love was gone but it's back in your eyes It's in the skies We're on the rise

Elegy 04:10
Elegy by John Beccia Close those eyes See the way we feel about him When someone dies So hard to learn to live without them Do these tears return from feeling lonely as can be Or do I cry........................... because I miss your company? Look around There’s so much more we’ll never know Homeward bound But now we’re living on our own Do these tears return from seeing cruel reality Or do I cry............................ because I miss your company? Autumn’s leaves They dry up to an empty brown Earth receives The crumbled pieces on the ground Do these tears return revealing our mortality Or do I cry............................ because I miss your company?

about

Up in the Air's 6th album is a collection of mostly live recordings from 1998 and 1999 and includes some of my favorite songs done by the group. During this time, the group had a number of personnel changes but continued to perform it's all original, danceable and upbeat music, thus the large number of participants on this project.
This album is dedicated to the memory of Frank Garcia and Selene Coen who will always remain.... "Partner's of the Dance."
New edits and remastered Sept 2020
