Track Name: New York Ways
See Chevy's aqua-planing
The screech of tyre on track
Cicades in the maple
Will hum till night is black
I miss the morning bagel
Fresh coffee in a cup
The beaches on the weekend
Sending blood pressure up

I miss my New York days
My New York ways
I miss 'em all
I miss my New York days

The steamy heat of summer
The clear and endless sky
The ride to Bear Mountain
A Channel 13 drive
Taconic Parkway gilded
Luminous in the fall
No sleep without the a/c
My God I miss it all

Working in Greemwich C.T
High rollers everywhere
Armed cops on traffic duty
No Ma'am you can't cross there
The A and P for shopping
Emporium if flush
Life in Westchester County
I could not get enough
Track Name: Sweet Sweet Love
Sweet,sweet,sweet,sweet love
You're gonna feel it
Sweet,sweet sweet sweet love
You're gonna need it

This emotion it will cause you pain
You best avoid it
But there really is no hiding place
You can't destroy it

By embracing it with open arms
You're at the mercy of its charms
Sweet sweet sweet sweet love
You're gonna feel it

If you want your life without
Complications
Cacell your subscription to
Loves obligations

They're creeping in the back door now
You must not let your guard go down
Sweet sweet sweet sweet love
You're gonna feel it
Track Name: Hold Me
I'd like to hold you in a warm embrace
And leave you with a smile upon your face
Hold me
Just hold me
Hold me till the day is done


People say the little things in life most
A knowing look or a winning smile could lay my ghosts
Hold me
Just hold me
Hold me till the day is done

Just hold me till the day is done
Hold me till the war is won
And I will tell you all about my
Tell you all about my
Tell you all about my love
Track Name: Her Life's A Play
Old theatrical posters
Cover walls that are older
There she sits
Thumbing programs to bits
Candles lit

Scans the pages for her name
Fading remnants of her fame
Kept alive
Though her still active mind
Is on rewind

Her lifes a play
All the world is her stage
Her lifes a play
A leading role to be played

On an overstuffed sofa
Too much gin in her soda
Wearing lace
Though she still paints her face
There's no grace

Theres no man to romance her
Though she once loved an actor
She gave up him
Now she ruefully grins
At her sins

Her lifes a play
All the world is a stage
Her lifes a play
A leading role to be played

When she toured the country
All her friends thought her lucky
With a frown
As the curtain comes down
She wonders where they all are now

Dreams of making a comeback
Once again meet her public
She cannot face
Time has quickened it's pace
She's lost the race
Track Name: First Congregational Church
Learn to decipher the code
Don't let your values erode
Sharing opinion is fine
But hearing it all of the time
In a backroom
In a vacuum

In the first congregational church of the mind
The first congregational church of the mind
You're leaving your heart
And your IQ behind
In the first congregational church of the mind

Airwaves deliver the news
Political shades, tints and hues
Wearing you down by degrees
Bringing you down to your knees
Subscribe now
And don't doubt

The first congregational church of the mind
The first congregational church of the mind
You 're leaving your heart
And your IQ behind
In the first congregational church of the mind

And you're leving it there for good
And it wont come back like it should
If you open up your heart
You' ll feel better
Right from the start
Track Name: In Dreams ( vocal )
Have you had a dream
Where you are being chased
And there's no way out
That you can find
You wake to find
Worries on your mind
Have you had a dream
Like Me

I have a dream
With a recurring theme
Loves that are lost
Never to be found
I panic
I cry
Uneasy in my mind
Did you have a dream
Like me

I'm shaken
Stirred
It's really so absurd
My sorrows
I drown
Till night time comes around

I once had a dream
But now in ruins it lies
All that we wish
Is subject to change
As time go's by
My dream begins to die
Did you have a dream
Like me
