Track Name: In Light In
Truth Love and Beauty are just words to the birds but they sing them for free!
Open up the window...and in light comes in, light comes in, light comes in!
In light in in.

When doubt and hesitation seem to be my only friends, I look to the sky and I open the window...
In light comes in light comes in. In light in in.
SOLO (trumpet/cello)
Truth love and beauty are just words to those birds, but they sing them for free...open your eyes...in light comes in light comes in. In light comes in. In light in in.
JAM
Human you be...lucky are we...just to be...hum and you beauty, oh so lucky are we, just to be, lucky are we)
Track Name: Lucky Are We
LUCKY ARE WE

Lucky are we to be a love like ours is a love
Of the stars (in the sky, in the sky)
To the stars (in the sky, in the starry sky)
From the stars
And lucky are we to be a friend who knows
When we’ll go (when we’ll go)
So lucky are we! Just to be! Here!

Does luck just touch a fortunate few, depends on your point of view, who are you? And lucky are you lucky?
INSTRUMENTAL
Lucky are we to be on earth you see
Here we are (Here we are!)
And here art we, lucky to be!

Does luck just touch a fortunate few, depends on your point of view, who are you? And lucky are you lucky?

Track Name: The Changes
The Changes

Heart broken melody for love’s ever changing scenery
Gotta give love gotta give love gotta give love to get love
Gotta give love!
A thousand choices come to one and all can be undone
Gotta give love gotta give love gotta give love to get love
Gotta give love!
Last night you called me! You said I’m fucking angry
Gotta give love gotta give love gotta give love to get love
Gotta give love!

HEAL AS WE HEAL
Track Name: This Time
Ambition, I’m lousy with it. Chasing down in my head, in my head.
And don’t you wanna be a part of my team? Chasing down this crazy dream?
Seems a dream but...

This time, I’ll believe, you’d better believe I will
This time, I’ll receive, what you got to give me
This time, I will believe

Satisfied, I’ll never be...(not me never will I be) cos I’ve got a picture rolling round in my mind In my mind...i take the time to sit and see and what do i see but this whole Crazy world’s Coming apart at the seams....seems a dream but

This time, I will believe, you’d better believe I will
This time, I’ll receive
INSTRUMENTAL
A carrot colored goal dangling before me, a carrot coloured goal said Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Nah!
SOLO
This time, I will believe, you’d better believe I will
This time, I’ll receive, what you got to give me
This time, I will believe
Track Name: Another Tear
Maybe I loved you in another time and space
one we`re parallel to
where all the years and all the tears
i`ve wasted here on you are forgotten
you
and
i won`t shed another tear for you
no i won`t shed another tear for you

and i can`t imagine the world without you
no, i can`t
imaging the world without you, no no no no no, no I can`t imaging
can`t i dream, can`t i, dream, dream
Track Name: Pride
I thought I was so enlightened I was never frightened of anything
nothing
I was proud of what I thought, but what I thought was nothing
nothing
And you`re the thorn in my side
showing me that it`s just, it`s just, just that i`m full of pride

Hot tempered that was me, provoked all to easily
Like I bee-sting I`m inflamed, cos I`m feeling like i`m getting blamed
i`m getting blamed

And you`re the thorn in my side
showing me that it`s just, it`s just, just that i`m full of pride

PRIDE IN 7

Where the bee sucks there suck I on a cowslips bell, I lie
There I couch when owls fly on a bat`s back, I...
Track Name: Sorin`s Theme
The sound of the rain falling hard on umbrella`s
the rustle of leaves underfoot
my landlord is there and he`s raking the leaves
he says that he`s mad cos it`s hard on his knees
i feel a long winter coming then along comes spring
to do it again and again and again.

INSTRUMENTAL: Frozen Woman on the Shores of English Bay
Track Name: The Game
I’m not going to tell you that i miss you
Not going to tell you you’ve been on my mind
But if you read between the lines there’s no doubt in what you’ll find The truth will astound you
So you can walk away and never hear me say I NEED you

I’m not going to sing you a love song
Not going to tell you you’ve been on my mind
So don’t build castles in the sand just try to understand the messages around you
So you can turn away and never hear me say i WANT you
ECHOES of days gone by Memories of you and i are all that remain And now the game is over
You might never believe me Think that things are still the same But even though i shed a tear doesn’t mean i want you near I’m doing fine without you
So you can turn away cos I just might say i LOVE you
LOOKING back through the years somehow it seems so clear that nothing remains and now the game is over
Track Name: The Return
The Return: By Roch Gallo

Years ago, we closed the door
Now’s the time, to open for
All that is here, what we thought disappeared
Like a cloud in the skeye, days and nights go by
But we return again

Close your eyes and I’ll close mine
There’s no doubt in what we’ll find
Oh, take us home, to the place we belong
We were here for a while, there were tears and smiles
But we returned again

I’ve been waiting here, for a long, lonely time
Hoping to read all your secret signs
Show us the way from here
Track Name: All Day Long (Jai Ram)
ALL DAY LONG

what would you do in a world made just for you?
with no bowties or street lies
no cutting down to size

what ya gonna do with nothing left to do?
no lineups no hangups no put up shut up hurry hurry hurry up!
OH i think that

All day long, we'd sit and sing songs about people (places)
All night long, sit and sing songs about love! x2

And on the other side, the other side...we’ll sing about love
(AMa7/Bmi7/C#mi7/DMa7-hold)

What will you do when all your dreams come true?
INSTRUMENTAL OVER D7
What will we do when our inner skeyes are blue?
no heartbreak or toothache just freely give and take...our time to
E9
sit and sing!

All day long, we'd sit and sing songs about people (places)
All night long, sit and sing songs about love! x2

And on the other side, the other side...

Ami7/Dmi7/Emi7
What we gotta do to get some grace
Who we gotta call to see our own face
Where we oughta be to end this race in time

Ami7/Dmi7/E7#9 (what if?)

All day long, we sit and sing songs about people (places)
An All night long, sit and sing songs about love! X4 – have choir singing chorus


And on the other side....the other side we’ll sing about love
(AMa7/Bmi7/C#mi7/DMa7-hold)



LUCKY ARE WE : Michelle Dumond

Lucky are we to be a love like ours is a love
Of the stars (in the sky, in the sky)
To the stars (in the sky, in the starry sky)
From the stars
And lucky are we to be a friend who knows
When we’ll go (when we’ll go)
So lucky are we! Just to be! Here!

Does luck just touch a fortunate few, depends on your point of view, who are you? And lucky are you lucky?
INSTRUMENTAL
Lucky are we to be on earth you see
Here we are (Here we are!)
And here art we, lucky to be!

Does luck just touch a fortunate few, depends on your point of view, who are you? And lucky are you lucky?
