Track Name: Blue Sky [ft. Kelly Jones]
Gazing out of my window
I so often get carried away
Hitch a ride on a cumulus cloud
On the horizon I lay

He hardly even knew me
He was the sun
My sky was partly cloudy
And he moved on

Blue sky
Such a day can be so deceiving
Any moment he could be leaving

Blue sky
Take him out and then get to know him
Hold him close or the wind will blow him
Away

Gazing out of my window
I so often get carried away
Gazing out of my window
I so often get carried away
Track Name: Something's Happening [ft. Linus of Hollywood]
It's in the air
Here in this crowded city
It's everywhere
And we can feel we're gonna
Move to something more than music
In the hours to come
Don't you feel like staying out all night?

This could be the moment for the
Biggest celebration
The world has ever known all right

It's you and me and the world is free because
Something's happening

We wanna be in the energy because
Something's happening
Something's happening

We hear the beat
Of many generations
And on the street
A sense of joy is nearing
Step by step the music takes us
Where we want to be
Painting vivid colors of delight

Add a little magic to this
Joyous jubilation
Open up your arms enjoy the night

It's you and me and the world is free because
Something's happening

We wanna be in the energy because
Something's happening
Something's happening
Track Name: Any Day Now [ft. Steve Eggers]
Any day now
She's gonna break your heart and end it
Unexpected
Your life will change in just one minute
Any day you're really really really really gonna get it

She will tell you
That you've been treating her so badly
It doesn't matter
Now that she used to love you madly
Any day you're really really really really gonna get it

She will change her phone
She'll change her locks
She'll even change her e-mail
Instead of fall in love
She'd rather leave than be left
All alone

Any day now
She'll casually announce she's leaving
Or if you're lucky
She'll leave a note while you are sleeping
Any day you're really really really really gonna get it

Let me tell you
That if you let her go I'd choose her
And I'll show you
Just what a fool you were to lose her
Any day you're really really really really gonna get it

Any day now
Track Name: I Don't Know You [ft. Wyatt Funderburk]
She works at a Chinese takeaway
She smiled at me yesterday
I know she'd love a man like me
Faithfully
I took her picture then printed out
A giant poster that's in my house
I'm dreaming of her tonight

I don't know you
I wish I did know you
I wish I did know you
I wish I did know you

Although I worry it isn't right
I follow her home every night
I guess she would be freaked out too
If she knew
I will be waiting for our first kiss
And I'll eventually get my wish
When someday she says to me

I don't know you
I wish I did know you
I wish I did know you
I wish I did know you

All she really needs to do is go out on a date
(She will be fine - I won't forget my meds this time)
I can not imagine why she'd even hesitate
I'm her fate

I don't know you
I wish I did know you
I wish I did know you
I wish I did know you
Track Name: Diving In a Sea of Light [ft. Linus of Hollywood & Willie Wisely]
The tide is rising and the sun's fading fast
An endless stream of consciousness running past
There's no one here
There's no one here
It's just me
Then effortlessly
Currents warmly ferry me on out to the sea

I've drifted far away from the nearest land
Take one big breath and hold it as long as I can
I close me eyes
I close me eyes
I can see
So delicately
Color, texture, shapes and forms
Swim all around me
All around me

Diving in a sea of light
Surrounded by a luminescence
In the dark of night
Diving in a sea of light
Another world's inviting me to stay
Yeah
Just a bit longer
Then I'll come up for air

Amidst the silence I can hear now and then
Familiar voices welcoming me back again
I'm not alone
I'm not alone
Soon I'll be
Again peacefully
Head above the waves and back to reality
Now I'm feeling so free...

Diving in a sea of light
Surrounded by a luminescence
In the dark of night
Diving in a sea of light
Another world's inviting me to stay
Yeah
Just a bit longer
Then I'll come up for air

I'm diving in a beautiful sea of light
Track Name: And Ever [ft. Willie Wisely]
I get lost in history
Miracles, courage and splendor
These tales live on forever and ever, and ever

You're the myth of modern days
Beautiful, loving and tender
All of my love I surrender
Forever and ever, and ever, and ever

Such a small sliver of time for us to be
Such a small sliver of time for us to be, oh...
History's not just the past
History's only what lasts

Run away with me my love
Let's write our story together
This moment we will remember
Forever and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever,
and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever,
and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever
Track Name: Nobody Listens [ft. Bradley Dean Whyte]
Nobody listens to music anymore

Have a heart that never hardens
It was the winter of despair
To a young heart everything is fun
It was the best of times
It is a far far better thing
That I do than I've ever done

Oh, nobody listens
Nobody listens to music anymore
No, nobody listens
Nobody listens to music anymore

Preheat oven to 320
In a medium sized bowl whisk the flour, salt and spices well, and then set it aside
Mix the sugar, butter, eggs, then add them to the flour mix

Oh, nobody listens to music anymore
Nobody listens to music anymore

Where have you gone, imagination?
But then again, why should I care?
If I never even knew you
There would be so much more that I could do
Like watch cable TV and eat until death catches up with me

Oh, nobody listens
Nobody listens to music anymore

function widget_d {
if (hasOutput() && true)
open filter($css)
if !(function_exists())
return enterText.group.filterMode()
}

Oh, nobody listens
Nobody listens to music anymore
No, nobody listens
Nobody listens to music anymore

Nobody listens to music anymore
Track Name: Do You? [ft. Willie Wisely]
The surface tension mounts, I'm drawn without a trace
A paper tiger in a story about face
What's the time and again
When I lay down the lawn I'm as soft as a flowerbed

We carry on our baggage weighs us down the drain
No empty promises to bring it up again

A lost causing a stir
All the paints on the palette of one less ex-connoisseur
The horses jockey and are spurred on for the win

If you want to take me out
I will be there
You can even take me home for an affair
If you want to waste my time
Then I don't care
Oooo... do you?
Oooo... do you?

The rotten underbelly buttons up his shirt
He under estimates the power of a skirt
Under the moonlights with men
She promises she won't break those promises again

A tumble dryer sense of humorless is more
When mother nature calls long distance troubadour
There's a game to be won
But I wonder if gaming the system is all or none
Without a color commentary or a score

If you want to take me out
I will be there
You can even take me home for an affair
If you want to waste my time
Then I don't care
Oooo... do you?
Oooo... do you?
