Track Name: Without Love
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
Track Name: Behind all the Tears
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
Track Name: Road That Used To Be
The Road That Used to Be
(by John Beccia)

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 would 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
And 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......is now memory
And I’m left out on the road that used to be

I was so happy........ 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: Woman like Me
A Woman Like Me
(by John Beccia)

You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
You know a good man like you, gonna need some good company -y-y
I’ll help to rise so strong in the light...Then back into bed in the dead of night
You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
Gonna need a woman like me

You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
‘Cause anything that you want, I can give you so easily-y-y
If you need food, then I will take heed ...I’ll satisfy you with the things you need
You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me....Gonna need a woman like me

I’ll bring you back up, when you are down.... If you are lost, I’ll make sure you are found
The future looks good, forget what is past....I’ll give you a sweet love, and you’ll want it to last
I’ll give you sweet love that will last

You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
You know that love can be sweet, then sting you like a queen bee
The honey that’s love is inside the hive...Sharing my sugar keepsyou alive
You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me.....Gonna need a woman like me

It don’t matter where, the kitchen or hall ..... In spring or in summer or winter or fall
I’ll take all you give and I’ll give you my all.....And If you cry out I will answer the call
You cry and I answer the call

You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
You know a good man like you, gonna need some good company-y-y
I’ll make your head spin, out of control
And pull you right out of the deepest hole
You know a good man like you, gonna need a woman like me
Gonna need a woman like me
Gonna need a woman like me
Gonna need a woman.
Gonna need a good good woman
A good woman to squeeze you
A good woman to please you
Gonna need a good.....good.......woman..... like me......................
Track Name: Chance to Take
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
Track Name: Leavin' in Your Eyes
 LEAVING IN YOUR EYES
by Phil Gross & Bill Hermann         

 
YOU FEEL HER TOUCH SHE NEVER SHOWS
THE PERFECT ACTOR  STILL YOU KNOW
TO TRY AND HOLD HER IS TO TRY AND HOLD THE WIND
SO YOU HIDE THE WAY YOU FEEL WHEN SHE'S NEAR        
AND YOU TELL HER THAT YOU LOVE HER WHEN SHE CAN'T HEAR

AND BABY IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU HOW HAVE YOU BEEN
AND YOU'RE LOST INSIDE HER MAGIC ONCE AGAIN
SHE OFFERS YOU HER LOVE WITH NO DISGUISE
FOR THAT LITTLE BIT OF LEAVING IN HER EYES

YOU WATCH THE NIGHT PLAY OFF HER HAIR
DISCARDED NIGHT GOWN ON THE CHAIR     
HER QUIET BREATHING IS THE ONLY SOUND YOU HEAR 
SO YOU THINK ABOUT THE SECRET THAT YOU KEEP
AND YOU TELL HER THAT YOU LOVE HER BUT WHILE HE SLEEPS

AND BABY IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU HOW HAVE YOU BEEN
AND YOU'RE LOST INSIDE HER MAGIC ONCE AGAIN
SHE OFFERS YOU HER LOVE WITH NO DISGUISE
FOR THAT LITTLE BIT OF LEAVING IN HER EYES
Track Name: Through the Night
Through the Night
by John Beccia

I got a guy, who’s kind of crazy, but he always treats me right
His hair is long, a little wavy, and it’s got a streak of white
And when we talk, we talk for hours about the little things in life
Just like the sun...will feed the flowers, he will lead me through the night

He makes me feel a little lazy, when he rubs my back so sweet
My thoughts they get a little hazy, when he knocks me off my feet
And when we walk, we walk for miles just taking in most every sight
Like a welcome path..... through the forest wild, he will lead me through the night

He is my friend, I am his lady I’ll always treats him like a king
Like a mother swan protects her baby, I’ll hold him close beneath my wing
And when we lie next to each other, there are no questions wrong or right
Just like the heart will lead the lover, he will lead me through the night

Like a shining star that will glow and hover...
He will lead me through the night
Track Name: Fantasy
Fantasy
(by John Beccia)

I wonder how much longer love is ours to keep......
while I lie still awake and you are still asleep
So far the love we share is living like a dream......
Could it be what it is, is really what it seems?
With changing times we must deal.....
The different ways that we feel
Will love endure and be so real

CHORUS - Or just a fantasy? (Is it just a fantasy?)
Or just a fantasy? (Is it just a fantasy?)
Or just a fantasy? (Is it just a fantasy?)
Or just a fantasy?

Crickets are chirping and the lights they lowly hum...... Feelings are fragile and the hurt will have to come
Each person plays the game the way they think is right......
The ocean ebbs and flows as day turns into night
As time keeps moving so fast.....
What do we learn from the past?
Is love so strong that it can last
Repeat Chorus

It takes 2 hearts combined to know it means a lot......
It take 2 hands entwined to hold to what you've got
It takes so long to learn you can't go back again...... You've got to live inside the moment that you're in
Nobody knows what's in store.....Why are we reaching for more?
Will love still be what we live for
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: 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
