FIELDS OF CORN

FIELDS OF CORN             Marlon O'Reilly vocals

in my pick up truck I race and rattle along

a dusty gravel road, there's a travel clock

glued to the dashboard, it reads one o'clock

as the world goes by fields of corn

and the thunder heads litter the sky

the smell of rain is carried on the wind

through fields of corn

against the windshield the first rain showers

slip and slide, the wipers don't work

but the sun shines and the thunderheads

litter the sky as the smell of rain 

is carried on the wind through

fields of corn, carried on the wind

and the sun shines high above

and it shines, carried on the wind through

 

fields of corn

and if it's not one thing, then it's another

and time won't stand still it only moves on

as the smell of rain is carried on the wind

 

through fields of corn, oh shine on

hmmm shine on

BEEN GOOD      Warren Stanyer vocals

haven’t always been good

 

haven’t done things that I should

 

you know i would if I only could

 

haven’t always been good

 

regrets I’ve had a few

 

I never intended to be such a fool

 

and if they turn back the hands of time

 

I’ll be the first to get in line

 

I haven’t always been good

 

I haven’t done things that I should

 

you know I would if I could

 

haven’t always been good

 

everyday is a brand new start

 

I do my best to do my part

 

but if I get a little out of my mind

 

don’t think of me as unkind

 

and you could say you don’t

 

want me around

 

I understand I know I should

 

I haven’t always tried to be good

 

I haven’t always been good

 

I haven’t done things like I should

 

you know I would if I could

 

I haven’t always been good

 

been good been good been good

STOP PLAYING CHICKEN    Larry Marciano vocals

I get this crazy feeling in my heart

 

every time I lay my eye on you

 

like a rooster who needs to crow

 

I’m all feathers with no where to go

 

you’ve got skin I love to touch

 

goose bumps and tenderness but it really 

 

gets to be too much ‘cause lately

 

all you do is tease

 

I’m on my knees baby begging you please

 

stop playing chicken

 

who do ya think your kiddin’

 

stop playing chicken with my heart x 2

 

take it away boys . . . 

 

I’ll give you time to sit on it

 

just give our love a chance and see how

 

well we fit meanwhile I won’t count 

 

my chicks till they hatch until then

 

I’m begging  you please

 

stop playing chicken

 

who do ya think your kiddin’

 

stop playing chicken with my heart x 2

 

you’re not the only hen in the house

 

here we go

SUMMER RAIN                     Warren Stanyer vocals

the rain is a welcome change from the dust and heat

the clouds squeeze the sunlight from the sky

we take shelter underneath the trees

a strand of hair falls gently across your face

I can no longer resist your lips

in the summer rain

this is our first kiss all days before led to this

my heart is beating like a drum

I can no longer resist your lips

to you I surrender

in the summer rain

the setting sun gives the clouds a golden crown

as the rain slips through the leaves

while falling at our feet like seeds

your love is lifting me up higher

in the summer rain

how I dreamed of this moment with you

to have and to hold

each and every day in almost every way

I give my love to you, only you

 

in the summer rain

 

this is our first kiss, all days before led to this

my heart is beating like a drum

I can no longer resist you lips

to you surrender, in the summer raind

in the summer rain, in the summer rain

in the summer rain, in the summer rain

THERE'S SOMETHING IN ME    Marlon O'Reilly vocals

I'm gettin' my chance to shine

but not without the fear of falling

it comes maybe once in a lifetime

this moment when you risk it all

I feel myself losing control

but at the same time I'm free

what I make what I take

what I've got to give

I hear a voice deep in my soul

there's something in me

that makes me believe

somehow I've known all along

but's only now that I see

nothing can stop this feeling

nothing can me away from where I belong

and I feel myself losing control

but at the same time I'm free

what I make what I take

what I've got to give

I hear a voice deep in my soul

there's something in me

that makes me believe

there's something in me ya

that makes me believe

hmmm ya, come on

I'm lookin' back to a time

when I turned away and did not answer the call no

instead I ignored the very thing I was searching for 

I was searching

what I make what I take

what I've got to give

I hear a voice deep in my soul

there's something in me

that makes me believe

there's something in me 

that makes me believe

oh ya hmmm, there's something

ya there's something in me

A REASON TO STAY                 Marlon O'Reilly vocals

whoo ho, I'm beginning to see things that aren't there

I'm wound so tight there's no end in sight

It will only be a matter of time

just when I can't wait to get away

I find a reason to stay

you took me by surprise I didn't realize

you had a look in your eye

I couldn't wait to get away but you gave me 

a reason to stay

nothin' lasts forever so this must pass

I can never lose hope it will only be a matter of time

just when I can't wait to get away

I find a reason to stay

you took me by surprise I didn't realize

you had a look in your eye

I couldn't wait to get away but you gave me 

a reason to stay

I've tried to hard to hold it all back

when you're running out of room

there's no rules and after all that I've been through

I hope I can be who you see in me

just when I can't wait to get away

I find a reason to stay

I couldn't wait to get away

you took me by surprise I didn't realize

you had a look in your eye

I couldn't wait to get away but you gave me 

a reason to stay, a reason to stay

who hoo, hmmm,  a reason to stay

baby, you're my reason to stay

IN A HEARTBEAT                    Marlon O"Reilly vocals

I was dying to say something 

but you made it clear you didn't need to hear

what I didn't need to say

I don't know how I let it slip away

but to see you now breakdown and cry I ask why

baby please stay

I would take it all back I'm a careless fool

who loves only you, I would take it all back

in heart beat, I would take it all back

 

in a heartbeat

I'm a careless fool who loves only you

baby please stay, how can I be me without you

if you leave my world will turn black

I would take it all back I'm a careless fool

who loves only you, I would take it all back

in heartbeat, I would take it all back 

in heartbeat

I'm a careless fool who loves only you

in a heartbeat, hmmm, I would take it all back

I would take it all back in a heartbeat baby

YOU'RE EVERYWHERE            Marlon O'Reilly vocals

half a world away from home

 

I feel your presence everywhere

the sights and sounds it all seem so real

half a world and you're everywhere

 

you're everywhere

the wind carries the scent of your hair

and in the shadows hide the memories

locked away until now, you feel so near

half a world away from home

 

I feel your presence everywhere

the sights and sounds it all seem so real

half a world and you're everywhere

 

you're everywhere

ya ya ya, I step into the bright sunlight

and look towards the sea

and I feel so close, you feel so near

 

you feel so near

half a world away from home

 

I feel your presence everywhere

the sights and sounds it all seem so real, so real

and if I could make this moment last forever

it still wouldn't be long enough

everywhere, you're everywhere, everywhere

you're everywhere, whoo who, everywhere

whoo who everywhere

NEVER STAND ALONE          Marlon O'Reilly vocals

none of us should yield

 

to the forces who believe

they're the only voice

 

I'll kick my chair from the table

and stand by your side

 

we'll be shoulder to shoulder

what ever is to come in our lives

at any moment our lives can change

so swiftly and suddenly

 

all that's left is uncertainty

no you'll never stand alone

 

I'm ready to commit to the end

 

some way somehow we'll make it through

 

we'll be shoulder to shoulder

 

in the things we do

 

although my heart aches for your sanctuary

I know there's only so much I can do

no you'll never stand alone

I'm ready, ready to commit to the end

no you'll never stand alone

I'm ready, ready to commit to the end

no matter the fear, what ever is to come

shoulder to shoulder I will be there

no you'll never stand alone

TRUE TO MYSELF                 Marlon O'Reilly vocals

if I'm true myself I might discover my

 

inner light and if I find this beautiful place

 

I'll surrender to it's embrace

 

hmmm, ya ya ya

 

and now somethings seems out of reach

 

like three tangerines on a slot machine

 

but I have the choice to live with regret

 

or have the courage to make the bet

 

if I'm true myself I might discover my

 

inner light and if I find this beautiful place

 

I might surrender to it's embrace ya 

 

ya ya ya if I'm true to myself

 

hmmm, I'm walkin' down the road alone

 

there's signs to tell me where to go

 

there's no light that burns quite like mine

 

there's only one chance to let it shine

 

hmmm, let it shine

 

and every time I try to be some thing

 

that ain't me it all falls apart

 

when I listen to the song in my heart

 

it shines, shines, shines shine

 

if I'm true myself I might discover my

 

inner light and if I find this beautiful place

 

I'll surrender to it's embrace

 

I'll surrender to it's embrace

 

oh to it's embrace, if I'm true myself

 

if I'm true to myself, if I'm true to myself

 

if I'm true to myself, oh whoa if I'm true

DAY TO NIGHT         Warren Stanyer vocals

 

there’s a point of light

 

as day gives in to the night

 

it’s a time to let go

 

of all these things I can’t control

 

as day gives into the night

 

it’s a time to let it go

 

I tried to run from my fears

 

but it always found me 

 

alone in the rain

 

I keep step with the change

 

for nothing ventured nothing’s gained

 

as day gives in to the night

 

it’s a time to let go

 

as day gives in to the night

 

it’s a time let go

 

of all these things I can’t control

 

everyone is unique

 

and I’m no different

 

we all need to find a place

 

to let go of all these things 

 

we can’t control

 

as day gives in to the night

 

it’s a time to let go

 

as day gives in to the night

 

it’s a time let go

 

of all these things I can’t control

 

of all these things I can’t control

 

of all these things I can’t control

 

I’m gonna fly

 

I’m gonna fly

 

just watch what I try

DOWN THE ROAD                  Marlon O'Reilly vocals

journey starts out set foot one day

down the road come what may

lookin' for truth so hard to find

gotta ease my restless mind

it keeps comin' around

I'm going on down the road

it keeps comin' around

I'm goin' down the road

desert skies shinin' bright

moonlight guidin' me tonight

milestones click crickets wail

all part of my wanderin' tale

it keeps comin' round and I'm going on

down the road

it keeps comin' round and I'm going on down

down the road ya I'm going down the road

nowhere to go but I'm movin' fast

I'm a vagabond but not the last

driftin' on from town to town

or will it keep me hangin' round

it keeps comin' round I'm going on

 

down the road

it keeps comin' round I'm going on

 

down the road

it keeps comin' round I'm going

 

down the road

it keeps comin' round, comin' around

 

I'm going down the road

LOVE                                   Marlon O'Reilly vocals

love came to me in a very simple way

it came on a day when I had nothing better to do

there wasn't a bright light there wasn't a wind

I felt I was in the middle of everything

you must've done a whole lot of soul searching

you must've studied a great deal

who can imagine all those night so alone

love fills the day and melts my worries away

it picks me up when I'm down on my luck

didn't use a compass or a chart of the stars

love can find you wherever you are

you must've done a whole lot of soul searching

you must've studied a great deal

who can imagine all those night so alone

even now you must be holding back

those tears of all these years

and if there was advice parlay to you

don't work to hard and give love

a chance to find you, don't work to hard

and give love a chance to find you

give love a chance to find you

give love a chance, don't work to hard

and give love a chance to find you

STAND ON MY OWN              Marlon O'Reilly vocals

darkness need no always be feared

it's also a place to hide, I've been there

I'm not sure who you think you are

but you're lost and that must really hurt

I've been there, I've been there crying alone

wishing away the pain

you're laughing at me 'cause I'm different

I'm laughing at you 'cause you're all the same

you say I'm ugly I have no friends

you push and shove me to the edge

I don't know where you think this is going

but you're goin' know, I believe in myself

I can stand on my own

 

I'm not weak or afraid to speak out

I don't where you think this is going

but you're goin' know

I'll stand on my own, stand on my own

and when you come to the end

and you're lookin' for somewhere to hide

I know a place you can go

I believe in myself, I can stand on my own

I'm not weak or afraid to speak out

I don't where you think this is going

but you're goin' know

I'll stand on my own, stand on my own

there will always be someone trying to

test your will and bring you down

but if I can do it so can you

stand on my own, stand on my own

we can stand on our own, together

WHO YOU COULD BECOME      Kyler England vocals

I hear a voice coming from the forest

there's no doubt it's calling out for me

from here on in nothing will ever be the same

are you willing to give up who you are for

who you could become

I'm running so fast my heart's on fire

while the glare of the sun bleaches the sky

suddenly I stumble falling I cry out

are you willing to give up who you are for

who you could become

afraid and alone in the unknown

give up who you are

for who you could become

memories and sunlight filter through

emerald trees I'm trembling

 

but I'm no longer fearful

are you willing to give up who you are for

who you could become

afraid and alone in the unknown

give up who you are

every now and then I'm reminded

not to leave roads untravelled

tomorrow is never promised no no no

are you willing to give up who you are for

who you could become

afraid and alone in the unknown

give up who you are for

who you could become

don't give up don't give up on

who you could become

don't give up don't give up

every now and then I'm reminded

not to leave that road untaken

WHERE I'M BOUND       Kyler England vocals

knowing that it's time to leave

doesn't make it any easier to do

I step past patches of snow on the stairs

the light from the window fades as 

I stand and wonder where I'm bound

on a cold grey november day

I hear the soles of my shoes 

breaking the frozen ground

turn my collar to the wind

put your memory behind me

I'm walking away I'm falling away

never knowing

each night is like the one before

darkness surrounds me my fear blinds me

I'm searching for the light

on a cold grey november day

I hear the soles of my shoes 

breaking the frozen ground

turn my collar to the wind

put your memory behind me

I'm walking away I'm falling away

never knowing where I'm bound

cold cold grey where I'm bound

off in the distance a familiar sound

an echo of laughter my heart beating faster

hearts don't break they tear open

why did you promise forever?

love fades away on this dark lonely street

I won't fear tomorrow

on a cold grey november day

I hear the soles of my shoes 

breaking the frozen ground

turn my collar to the wind

put your memory behind me

I'm walking away I'm falling away

never knowing where I'm bound

cold cold grey where I'm bound

cold and grey where I'm bound

cold and grey where I'm bound

cold cold grey where I'm bound

where I'm bound cold and grey 

cold and grey

LOVED LIKE THIS             Kyler England vocals

paying attention like always do

I stepped and did this crazy dance

shaking my shoe, hanging my head

and feeling like such a fool

I look to the window and there you are

and you've got that look in your eye

oh I don't remember when

I've been loved like this

the sun rises higher

 

the moon and the stars 

shine so much brighter

you bring heat to the fire and

I don't remember when

I've been loved like this

I barely had time to get

my socks and shoes off

before your arms are around me

laughing we nearly fall to the floor

and I think to myself

oh I don't remember when

I've been loved like this

the sun rises higher

 

the moon and the stars 

shine so much brighter

you bring heat to the fire and

I don't remember when

I've been loved like this

what have I been doing all this time

I'm gonna give you all that I am

without I'm like the city without the night

oh I don't remember when

I've been loved like this

the sun rises higher

 

the moon and the stars 

shine so much brighter

you bring heat to the fire and

I don't remember when

I've been loved like this

I've been loved like this

I don't remember when

loved like this

PERFECT NIGHT                          Kyler England vocals

you suddenly open the door before I have a chance

to ring the bell, you're trying hard to be mad

but there's a playful look in your eye

and when you take me in your loving arms

squeeze daylight out of me

you make make me feel like it's a 

perfect night, perfect night

you lead my by the hand and take to the room

where boundaries don't exist

I'm so lost in your love I'm in so deep

there's no way out

when you take me in your loving arms

squeeze daylight out of me

you make make me feel

 

when you hold me tight

 

you make me feel like it's a 

perfect night, ya perfect night

who knows if this will last forever

gonna take my time lay it on the line

I don't want to let go

you make me feel so right

when you take me in your loving arms

squeeze daylight out of me

you make make me feel

 

when you hold me tight

 

you make me feel like it's a 

perfect night, like it's a perfect night

hey you make me feel, you make me feel

like it's a perfect night

TOUCHING THE VOID       Warren Stanyer vocals

travelled to a far away country

dreamed of climbing where others haven't

even though friends have not returned

I feel inspired by the courage to give

 

only their best I was to young to realize

that I'd be touching the void oh ya

touching the void

early morning sunlight lit up 

the reds and greens of my tent

it would take the afternoon sun

to really make me warm again

I climbed through the overhanging

rock snow and ice

this cold steep world was making me

stronger but taking me closer to

touching the void, touching the void

before long there I was just below

the great summit so fearless 

I had become there was no need

for the heat of the sun

down below the copper green lakes

lay beneath my final test

over 7000' to descend into

the heartache, pain, the loneliness of

touching the void, touching the void

the fall came suddenly silently endlessly

before I knew I was falling to fast

no breath to scream there was no fear

there was nothing

until I woke to a burning pain

I knew then I was

touching the void, touching the void

touching the void, touching the void

QUESTION OF BALANCE       Warren Stanyer vocals

there was a twitch in my neck

 

a chill down my spine

order and anarchy are no longer sublime

now was the time, forget control and go

I couldn't move so a I crumbled and fell

born, married, injured then died that's what

went through my mind as I went through the air

white points of light flash in front of me

the sky and the sun looked

 

so warm and fluorescent

my hands are to big I can't get a grip

I feel as hollow as the deepest cave

na na na na na na na na

it's a question of balance

these dreams and these fears

it's a question of reckoning

it's a question of balance

what happened to my blocks of confidence

they're falling away at my feet

and sending my higher, higher

born, married, injured then died that's what

went through my mind

born, married, injured then died that's what

went through my mind

born, married, injured then died

born, married, injured then died

 

that's what went through my mind

as I went through the air

it's a question of balance

these dreams and these fears

it's a question of reckoning

it's a question, question, question 

it's a question of balance

these dreams and these fears

it's a question of reckoning

it's a question of balance

HELI BLUES                    Paul Hookham vocals

well the dream was to heli ski

did my best to save the money

finally laid down the fee

I know there's no guarantee, no guarantee

well I'm not the type to complain

don't mind a little rain

but it's just not the same

'cause powder is the name of the game

well I put in the miles to get me the smiles

but I'm sitting down here waiting

for the skies to clear

moby's bowl and dildo

downy and mollock

franks and fang, nobby and chivas

puke and joes, roseberry and porcupine

are buried deep in a low

 

no sign of it letting go

well I put in the miles to get me the smiles

but I'm sitting down here in those

low riding, I said low riding no flying

 

heli blues

 

it went something like this, it don't look good

 

say the guides, don't look at me says the pilot

I haven't even had my coffee yet and besides

the guides are making me grumpy

it don't look good, ah low riding, no flying

heli blues

I say low riding, no flying, heli blues

moby's bowl and dildo, downy and mollock

franks and fang, nobby and chivas

puke and joes, roseberry and porcupine

ah mercy, we all know it's a waiting game

 

but I'm getting delirious in this rain

I need the pow, pow baby, deep deep pow

well I put in the miles to get me the smiles

but I'm sitting down here in those

low riding say no flying 

heli blues

ah low riding, no flying

heli blues

CLOSE MY EYES           Paul Hookham vocals

I can close my eyes and see you

 

I can put my head on the pillow and feel you

 

but this empty space has no place in my heart

 

this empty space is tearing it apart

 

oh how I long for your touch

 

and hear your laughter echo down the hall

 

oh how I long for your touch

 

and hear your laughter echo down the hall

 

one moment and I’m fine and the next

 

I’m losing my mind and time time heals all

 

but time takes it sweet time

 

oh how I long for your touch

 

and hear your laughter echo down the hall

 

oh how I long for your touch

 

and hear your laughter echo down the hall

 

lal lal la la  la la  la la la la la la

 

and everything gonna be all right 

 

everything is gonna be just fine

 

I can close my eyes

 

I can close my eyes

 

I can close my eyes

HE FELT LOVED

minding my own business

 

when the world came crashing down

 

it was like an explosion

 

that never made a sound

 

it was all the things that you dread

 

was it spreading through his head

 

and how much time?

 

we’ll fight to the end

 

he felt loved 

 

he felt loved

 

who knows when the end will be

 

all I know is what I see

 

the last look, the last breath

 

don’t know how long it took

 

he felt loved

 

he felt loved

A FAR CRY                   Marlon O'Reilly vocals

fire fills the sky

 

who can tell the children why

 

life is lost in the blink of an eye

 

who can tell the children why

 

broken walls are the colour of bones

 

broken walls destroy more than homes

 

and in the night I hear a cry

 

cry cry I hear a far cry

 

cry cry I hear a far cry

 

anxious eyes hide as the sun melts the moon

 

running for the school but it’s the first to go

 

hearts are racing as the first on scene

 

stumble through the rubble afraid

 

of what they’ll see suddenly someone

 

screams, in coming!

 

cry cry I hear a far cry

 

there’s no water to wash bloody hands

 

in the silence a small group share a cigarette

 

no one wants to be the first

 

to lay their guns down

 

victory is when a body is pulled

 

from the debris

 

cry cry I hear a far cry

 

cry cry I hear a far cry, cry

 

who can tell the children

GIVE TO GET                Kyle Castellani vocals

all right, we’ve got two hands

 

lets put them together

 

one to give and one to receive

 

don’t need to change the world

 

do a little thing with a big heart

 

got to give to get

 

I’ve got to give to get what I want

 

I need to constantly look for opportunity

 

to make a better day for someone other than me

 

well helping don’t hurt it’s a necessity

 

I stay alert ready to act unselfishly

 

no need for divinity just do it willfully

 

don’t need to change the world

 

do a little thing with a big heart

 

got to give to get

 

fear is the enemy that seeks the lonely

 

but we have the ability

 

to overcome our vulnerability

 

there’s no mystery

 

who could disagree

 

that helping don’t hurt

 

all right we’ve got to hands

 

let’s put them together

 

one to give and one to receive

 

don’t need to change the world

 

do a little thing with a big heart

 

got to give to get

 

got to give to get

I’ll never look down on anyone

 

unless I’m helping them up

 

hey brother hey sister

 

lend me a hand

 

and help to stand

 

all right we’ve got to hands

 

let’s put them together

 

helping don’t hurt

 

don’t need to change the world

 

do a little thing with a big heart

 

got to give to get, don’t need to change the world

PILL IN MY POCKET        Sam Tuten vocals

when you’re always burning ya

you stop feeling the heat

 

but the flame and the fire scream

when you’re always burning

a rough cut king believing

in no one or nothing

can’t trust myself that’s why there’s

a bottle opener on my key ring

  

a hammer in my hand

and a pill in my pocket 

  

I never got my monies worth

but I got more than I bargained for

I never knew I could fly so high with

 

a hammer in my hand

and a pill in my pocket

    

I never got my monies worth

but I got more than I bargained for

when the leve broke

and the waters crashed in

I was swept away but felt no pain

when the leve broke

any reason is a good reason

if it gets you what you want

I never knew I could fly so high 

 

without a hammer in my hand 

 

and a pill in my pocket

 

I never got my monies worth

   

but I got more than I bargained for

 

fly, I could fly

 

a pill in my pocket

 

I could fly, fly

NEVER TO LATE               Rory Sullivan vocals

mississippi’s burning

 

hate the colour of fire

 

ain’t no one going to win

 

hate the colour of fire

 

a darkness unfolds

 

at the crossroads

 

nightriders march in robes

 

do you stand in their way

 

or do you say, come what may

 

the song of the river

 

is heard by everyone

 

it’s never to late, never to late

 

to make it right

 

the river flows, but under heavy skies

 

it can rise and be so swiftly running

 

you ask how do you stop

 

what’s coming

 

the song of the river is heard by everyone

 

can’t out run a gun

 

from his arms they took his son

 

where the law, well there ain’t none

 

from his arms they took his son

 

the song of the river is heard by everyone

 

it’s never to late, never to late

 

to make it right

 

don’t give up the fight

 

one day is going to come

 

that day is own it’s way 

 

never to late to make it right

 

never never give up the fight

 

never to late to make it right

IT'S NOT THE WAND       Paul Hookham vocals

when it comes to the lovin' game

I can't claim to have a name

but I have learned a thing or two

and I'm going to share them with you

don't need to be her best

just give her something she won't forget

it's not the wand, it's the magician

hear me out

the magic is all in the touch

not to much but hmmm just enough

love like a diamond

a diamond in the rough

don't need to be her best

just give her something she won't forget

it's not the wand, it's the magician

sometimes she wants a little tenderness

other times we're in the wilderness

some of my favourite times

are when I take her to her happiness

don't need to be her best

just give her something she won't forget

well all her friends are going to want to know

what did he do first and how did it go

and tell me girl does the man like it slow

and what was playing on the radio

don't need to be her best

just give her something she won't forget

I feel what you feel so let it all go

I said let it all go

don't need to be her best

just give her something she won't forget

it's not the wand, it's the magician

it's not the wand, it's the magician

IN YOUR ARMS          Kyle Castellani vocals

 

waiting for the red eye 

 

and the only thing open

 

is a vending machine

 

I met a kind lady

 

and over bad coffee 

 

we talked and talked

 

about everything and nothing 

 

she reminds me of you

 

I’m strong with the world at my feet

 

you gave me roots so I could fly

 

your sacrifice made me who I am

 

when I’m in your arms I know I’m home 

 

it was through the years 

 

that I saw you try and hide your tears 

 

but that day in the garden

 

you knew I was there

 

yet still called me to your arms

 

I’m strong with the world at my feet

 

you gave me roots so I could fly 

 

your sacrifice made me who I am

 

when I’m in your arms . . . 

 

I’m strong with the world at my feet

 

you gave me roots so I could fly

 

your sacrifice made me who I am

 

when I’m in your arms

 

I know I’m home

GET IT RIGHT                   Rory Sullivan vocals

I know a little bit about something

but not enough to know anything

but that doesn’t stop me, oh no ‘cause

I’ve got an answer for everything 

if practice makes perfect

but no one is perfect

then I’ll learn to live with my regrets

always keeping my mind set & knowing that

it helps to have an answer for everything

and every now and then I’m right

it don’t happen enough in this life

that’s why it makes me high

when I get it right 

some say I have success

written all over me, others say

I’m as far as I’m going to go

little do they know

I’ve been to the mountain

 

climbed above where the birds fly

 

just to hear the words of the wise, I heard,

be your best, at the worst of times

 

get it right when it counts

it don’t happen enough in this life

that’s why it makes me high

 

when I get it right

IF I FALL                      Kara Hesse vocals

if I fall and you know I will

when I cry will you say it's all right

will you lift the pain from my soul

if I fall

sometimes my best isn't good enough

well I ask then, what the hell is?

I've travelled roads so dark and desperate

that I've never found my way back home

If I fall and you know I will

when I cry will you say it's all right

will you lift the pain from my soul

baby if I fall

if I fall babe

the pain is warm and so familiar

space and time are wrapped up in light

there's a mountain ahead so full of danger

tell me if I fall oh if I fall

if I fall and I will, if I fall and I will

will you lift the pain from my soul baby

if I fall and you know I will

when I cry will you say it's all right

will you lift the pain from my soul

if I fall, if I fall baby, if I fall baby

if I fall

*Marlon's version, bridge*

and if shadows are cast

I will reach for you

CARRY ME                                  Kyle Castellani vocals

the power of the memory makes time

 

a little more bearable

 

it helps to ease my mind

 

from something so terrible

 

the future has a sad refrain

 

but you’ll be here always

 

the power of the memory will carry me

 

the power of the memory

 

pictures can only say so much 

 

while the heart remembers everything, everything

 

I don’t always want to go there

 

but I can’t resist the sights or the sounds

 

I want to feel you surround me

 

I want to feel you surround me

 

the power of the memory will carry me 

 

the power of the memory carry me, carry me

 

the pain comes on like a heavy wave

 

I try to be brave but the pull is so strong

 

and I’m growing weak

 

the power of the memory will carry me

 

the power of the memory will carry me

 

I have this feeling you’ll be here always

 

the power of the memory, carry me, carry me

 

carry me, carry me, carry me, carry me . . . 

 

the power of the memory, ohh, carry me

RUNNING                       Marlon O"Reilly vocals

(am radio dialogue recorded live, Kelowna fire.)

I can barely see the sun

through the yellow sky

no chance of significant rain

better chance of lightening again

there's a state of emergency

from the valleys to the high country

the streets and homes everything is empty

but not the hearts of our community

you may only get a moments notice

before the fire comes through your front door

better grab what you can and

when it's time to give up the fight

and run for your lives! running, running

hmmmm, running, running!

you may only get a moments notice

before the fire comes through your front door

better grab what you can and

when it's time give up the fight

and run for lives! I'm running 

but I'm coming back

oh, running, running for your lives

running, running for your lives

oh, you gotta get out now

anyway you can

every woman child and man

gotta get out now, gotta get out now

gotta get out now, gotta get out now

THERE WAS A TIME              Marlon O'Reilly vocals

your words of goodbye brought a darkness

I couldn't escape forever vanishing

I promised myself to make the best of everything

a promise I didn't always keep

but now I stand tall

 

no matter the odds I'm above it all

there was a time

my body and my mind feel so strong

there was a time

I don't remember when the pain was forgotten

or how my dream survived

looking back now at those lonely yesterdays

they made me who I am

'cause now I stand tall

 

no matter the odds I stand tall

there was a time, there was a time

when I would run only to have it come undone

nowhere to hide all I saw was you

no will to fight so I cried

'cause now I stand tall

no matter the odds I'm above it all

there was a time, there was a time

there was a time

'cause now I stand tall

BE IN LOVE                      Marlon O'Reilly vocals

if love was a simple thing

 

then we’d all be in love

 

so many times I hide my heart

 

saying never again

 

you make me tremble

 

your touch so gentle

 

I was lost now I’m found and I want to be in love

 

if love was a simple thing

 

then who needs the stars?

 

in my arms, tender tight and warm

 

there will come no harm

 

you make me tremble

 

your touch so gentle

 

I was lost now I’m found and I want to be in love

 

your kiss is always on my lips

 

and everything you bring out in me

 

I’ll give back to you

 

hmmm if was a simple thing

 

if was a simple thing

 

oh oh oh oh oh oh be in love

 

oh oh oh oh oh oh be in love

 

oh oh oh oh oh oh be in love

 

who ho your kiss is always on my lips

HONEY IN THE MORNING         Kyle Castellan vocals

I wake up every morning like everyone else 

 

slip on my trousers and off to work I go

 

but not before I say hello good morning 

 

to my girl who makes the sweetest honey of them all

 

my boss man he yells and screams

 

put it here, no, put it there, what’s wrong with you?

 

it’s only half way to quitting time and

 

I’ve barely made a dime but waiting at home is

 

honey in the morning, honey at night

 

never seen a woman shine so bright

 

now the lunch room has it’s own idiot-sycronies

 

and it can hurt like a brain freeze 

 

there’s no need for a fitness program

 

because everyone’s dodging their responsibilities

 

jumping to conclusions, running down the boss

 

and pushing their luck

 

but my girl knows how to beautify

 

with loving so sweet

 

it makes the moon cry

 

honey in morning,  honey at night

 

never seen a woman shine so bright

 

well I love love love, love my girl

 

honey in the morning, honey at night 

 

never seen a woman shine so bright

 

honey in the morning, honey at night

COME HOME SOON            Marlon O'Reilly vocals

took my baby to the airport

 

waved goodbye with a tear in my eye

 

baby baby won’t please come home soon

 

late at night I’m home alone

 

come on honey won’t you pick up the phone

 

‘cause I need to hear the sound

 

of your sweet voice telling me that

 

everything is going to be all right
