Track Name: Time & Space (with Kris T)
Rusty and old
Left out in the cold
It’s been so long
Forgot about me
You lost the key
To start me up & turn me on

Youth is gone
Time moves on
You’ll never win that race
Just Look at yourself
See The age in your face

Can’t travel back
through time and space
Not Much more time
Time left to waste

Trying to find
A state of mind
Different time and place
Trying to find a feeling
To fill the empty space

Drive an old car
Hear an old song
It might take you there
Hop inside
Let’s go for a ride
Feel the wind in our hair
Track Name: Barn Find
Here I sit, Rusty and rotten
Idle and still, long been forgotten

I imagine the wind, The Thrill of the ride
Was I just dreaming, Still feel it inside

Now I’m waiting, To start up again
Can I still be, what I was back then
Will I be restored, I’m wondering when

And I feel you, Looking at me
My sad disrepair, Is that all you see

Please fix me, Don’t throw me away
Bring me to life, Help me to stay

‘Cause I’m still here, Locked up inside
Waiting to take , You for a ride
Waiting to feel, a new world outside

I still believe Dreams, can come true
Hope that you still, believe in me too

Just an old barn find, years without spark
Years without sunshine, Left in the dark

Out on the road, is where I belong
Filling the air, with my own song
We’ll be together, humming along

Help me to be, what you’re dreaming of
Won’t be easy, a labor of Love
Track Name: In Your Dream
I can feel it in the night time
As I Fall into my dream
I leave another day behind
For Somewhere in between

Flowers in a window
All the Colors gone
A shattered piece of something
Suddenly feels wrong

Stand next to a freight train
Scream out loud and clear
On a track to nowhere
Was Never really here

See the cloud formations
With birds up in the sky
Reflecting on a miracle
Right before my eyes

Close your eyes and drift to sleep
Inside your head where you are free
And you can fly without wings
Only ever in your dreams

A distant sound of laughter
A fire in the night
a memory of somewhere
In a carnival of light

Feel a sense of wonder
Feeling something new
Dreaming of a lifetime
And spending it with you

Constructing my emotions
Fragile point of view
Something out of nowhere
Now I see the truth

Floating through a window
Nothing's what it seems
Laws of physics don't apply
In the world of dreams

Close your eyes and drift to sleep
Inside your head where you are free
And you can fly without wings
Only ever in your dreams
Track Name: Back To Your Heart
It was raining that night
When you left me
You walked away
Didn't say goodbye

It's the little things in life
That really matter
But I forget to remember
Every time I try

I never knew what I wanted
I never knew what to say
I never knew how to feel
Now I need to find a way
Back to your heart
Your beautiful heart

That moment when you realize
It might be over
Everything that blooms
Must die

Good times and bad times
For better or worse
I remember those vows
How happy we were

I never knew what I wanted
I never knew what to say
I never knew how to feel
Now I need to find a way
Back to your heart
Your beautiful heart

I'll wait for you To Come back
In the morning
When the sun is out
and shining so bright

Maybe in a new day
You'll change your mind
And we can fall in Love
Wouldn't that be nice

Please help me find the way
Won't you help me find the way
Help me find the way

Back to your heart
Your beautiful heart
Track Name: Needle In The Hay
SONG LYRICS:

Hear a whisper of a memory
Late at night it speaks to me
Tells me all those things I can’t believe

Feel your touch across distance and time
You live your life and I live mine
There was a time when we were meant to be

But that train left the station
That ship has sailed away
Such a very long time ago
Been decades since that day

Trying to find you now
Would be like looking
For a needle in the hay

Sunset colors deep red in the sky
Dreaming about the day when you and I
Run across that sandy beach of time

I can still feel your warm embrace
Reminds me of that time and place
And the fire I once saw in your eyes

But that train left the station
That ship has sailed away
Such a very long time ago
Been decades since that day

Trying to find you now
Would be like looking
For a needle in the hay

So if you hear a whisper someday
Your memory is coming back to say
It’s never too late to find a way

To let the light back in

And Sometimes seems impossibly insane
To find a needle in the hay
Track Name: Rescue Me
SONG LYRICS

I see a glimmer of a ghost light in my mirror
Reflections of a World I cannot see
A distant whistle of a train that's getting nearer
Racing down the tracks to rescue me

Rescue me because I don't know what is real
Rescue me because I don't know how I feel
Please Rescue Me
And set me free

Ever feel like your career is over
One chance to make it come and gone
Had a dream that I found a four leaf clover
Had a dream that my lucky break had come

Rescue me from more reality TV
Rescue me from watching any more broken dreams
Please Rescue Me
And set me free

People paralyzed by their own fear
Remember how we once all felt so free
When will all this darkness just disappear
When will the beautiful light come and rescue me

Rescue me from this consumer culture scene
Rescue me because I don't know what it means
Please Rescue Me
And set me free

I see a glimmer of a ghost light in my mirror
I see that nobody can rescue me but me
Track Name: A Daddy's Love
Never thought I'd see the day, romantic Love has flown away
Not the kind of life that I had planned
My children make it all OK when they smile and laugh and wanna play
It's a daddy's Love I understand

It's a new reality and sometimes gets the best of me
Longing for a Love that I can't have
But when I wake up at dawn and hear my boy play his songs
It's a daddy's Love I understand

It's a daddy's Love I understand
When my daughter takes hold of my hand
And tells me that she Loves me more than anything
It's a daddy's Love I understand
And when I see my little boy discover life so full of joy
It's a daddy's Love I understand

So I put romantic Love on hold might be gone for good I just don't know
I've become a different kind of man
It's a daddy's Love I understand

Living in these wonder years I sometimes shed a tear
When I think of them all grown up and gone
But for now they call me daddy and this fills my heart with happy
It's a daddy's Love I understand

Yes romantic Love has flown away I hope that it comes back someday
But now I have a Love that has no end
It's a daddy's Love I understand
Track Name: Open The Door
SONG LYRICS

I heard an old song
Never heard it before
Wasn’t very long
But it opened a door

It reached right out
And shine a light on Love
And I have no doubt
It was sent from above

Why try to hide your soul?
Open the door before you get too old
But what if there’s nothing left to find
If you open the door you might be surprised

So all these old songs
You’ve never heard before
Why’d it take so long?
To unlock the door

So open your eyes
And open your ears
A whole world outside
New songs to hear

Why try to hide your soul?
Open the door before you get too old
But what if there’s nothing left to find
If you open the door you might be surprised

You say you don’t like
Most music today
All the industry hype
All the product for sale

But don’t just be
A consumer of things
Set yourself free
Live your own dreams
But what if there’s nothing left to find
If you open the door you might be surprised
