Track Name: Overture
(Instrumental)
Track Name: So Long
We've been together for so long.
Do you remember when we heard that song,
Long ago?

We've been best friends for a long time.
Locked thoughts of you in the back of my mind,
Long ago.

So long, we've been best friends for so long.

We haven't talked in a month now.
Couldn't have dreamed it would be this way now,
Long ago.

We were together for so long.
Don't you remember when we sang that song,
Long ago?

So long, we've been best friends for so long.
Track Name: Into Thin Air
Hold on, let me lend a helping hand.
I couldn't bare to let you fade away.
Hold on, let me guide you down the path.
I couldn't let you waste another day.

I gave you my heart,
I gave you my love,
and now you act as though I've faded
Into thin air.

Hold on, don't you make the same mistake.
I couldn't let you look back with regret.
Hold on, there's no reason you should thank.
I'm only looking for the best for you.

I gave you my heart,
I gave you my love,
and now you act as though I've faded
Into thin air.
Track Name: Half Asleep
Close my eyes on a warm summers day,
Listen to all of the young children play.
Don't mind if it rains... Just why should I care?
Take a deep breath of that clean summers air.

I'll dream of the love that i'll never see.
The one who I love, who doesn't love me.
A dream is a place, where lovers can be,
So take my hand, and we can be free.
Track Name: 1,000 Words
Anyone could see it, anyone could know.
Does it make you scared at night, make you wanna go away?
Think about it next time, don't make the same mistake.
You'll worry 'bout it every hour, that you are awake.

A picture's worth a thousand words, and you know it's true.
A pictures worth a thousand words, and this picture's of you.

Think about the good things, you used to mean to me.
Imagine what it must've felt like, with the thing's i'd see.
Think about it next time, don't make the same mistake.
You'll worry 'bout it every hour, that you are awake.

A picture's worth a thousand words, and you know it's true.
A pictures worth a thousand words, and this picture's of you.
Track Name: Moonlit Lake
A hammock on a rocky hill.
I lay next to a river, still.
The sun crosses horizon line,
through forests, Adirondack Pine.
The moon breaks through the summers day.
As I think with the hammocks sway.
Fun is only what you make.
Down at Sacandaga Lake.

People fishing on the pier,
let me know the summer's near.
The times I used to spend alone,
back before my bird had flown
The stars up in the moonlit sky
make a bachelor child cry,
Fun is only what you make.
Down at Sacandaga Lake.
Track Name: Open The Windows
When I was a little man, My mother took me by the hand,
and taught me all I'd need to know.
When I was a little guy, I looked up to the deep blue sky,
and knew that I would have to go.

Open the windows, breathe in the air, don't be afraid to care.

When I turned into a teen, the other kids would act so mean,
Why is it a sin to cry?
I knew I would have to go, and let you live your life alone,
I knew you could not live like this.

Open the windows, breathe in the air, don't be afraid to care.
Open the windows, breathe in the air, don't be afraid to care.
Track Name: Everybody's Doing It
Used to think you were a good girl, but you turned out bad.
Used to look up to ya girl, but it ended so sad.
I tried to keep you on the path, keep you in my sight.
But when I saw you walking with him, knew it wasn't right.
So I left you to slut around, and be a drama-queen,
And looking back, I bet you'll wish, you never were a Teen.

Lots of people doing, things they shouldn't do.
Lots of people making love, but not living it through.
Lots of people smoking, things they shouldn't be.
Lots of people thinking, they're completely free.

I look around, what do I see?
People who aren't what they used to be.
I look around, and I start to cry.
When did the person you'd used to be die?


Lots of people doing, things they shouldn't do.
Lots of people making love, but not living it through.
Lots of people smoking, things they shouldn't be.
Lots of people thinking, they're completely free.

I look around, I start to see,
Reflections of people who used to be me.
I look around, and I start to cry,
When did the person you'd used to be die?
Track Name: Our Brother's Keeper
Our brothers keeper
For a century, evermore
Protecting hopes and dreams
For people rich and poor

From forests of Argonne
To shores of Normandy
Across fields of Seoul and Saigon
Fighting for the free

God Bless Us All

Monuments to triumphs
Numbers far and wide
Graves of valiant solders
Honor them with pride

Yet we ask very little
A passing nod our way
Respect our way of life
Support the role we play

God Bless Us All

Spoken:
We hold these truths as self-evident,
Life, liberty and justice for all;
Blood shed to guarantee them ,
So freedom will not fall

Dreams pledged for equality,
Decades of fights of a different kind;
Certainly not a perfect nation,
But the best the world can find!
Track Name: Doesn't She Know
Another day, in the life of a lonely man.
Another heartbreak, in the life of a romance.

Doesn't She Know?

Won't she ever know the pain of letting go?
I just cared about her, I guess it didn't show.
Won't she ever see, It was meant to be?
I couldn't do it for her, set her woman free.

Doesn't She Know?

She's the kind of girl, who's got everything she needs.
A guy, some friends, to listen too her needs.
Don't worry 'bout tomorrow, Just worry 'bout today.
Sometimes, you just sit back, and let the moment play.
Track Name: Lonely World
You'd think that it would make me sad, but honestly it's not so bad.
Spending all my time alone, deep inside my cozy home.
Sometimes I like to get around, that's where memories are found.
But honestly, I think you'll see, there really is no place for me.

Up in Maine the skies are blue, it just wasn't made for you.
In New York it's either way, all you have to do is pay.
On an island you will see, it's too tropical for me.
California dreams are right, but i'd never last a night.

I try to think of all my friends, apparently it never ends.
But when I think of ones I've lost, I realize I have paid the cost.
Maybe there's no place for me, maybe I've just yet to see.
You know it wouldn't break my heart, to give myself a fresh new start.

It's a lonely world...
Track Name: We're There Again
As a day begins, another has to end.
I begin to wonder how we are there again.
The sky's a shade of gray, the rain is coming down,
close your eyes and listen to the beautiful sound.
