Track Name: Shine Your Light
We all have music inside
And poetry we hide
I'll find you in the night
If you shine your light

Shine your light
Shine your light
Shine your light
Shine your light

She said that simple is best
Why complicate the rest
How simple can love be
Shine your light for me

Shine your light
Shine your light
Shine your light
Shine your light
Track Name: Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe
Everybody ring around the Rosie
Everybody's pockets full of posies
Ashes to ashes
And everyone is falling down tonight

Jack and Jill went up the hill for water
But no water they could see
Jack feel down and broke his crown
And sweet Jill she could not flee

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe
Catch your lover by the toe
If she hollers, let her go
Home, way back home
Home, way back home

Poor old Georgie Porgie
Sure loved some puddin' and pie
But Anne had the face of an angel
And made Georgie cry

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe
Catch your lover by the toe
If she hollers, let her go
Home, way back home
Home, way back home
Track Name: Dawn
Dawn - I've waited for you all night long
Dawn - I've just been through the darkest storm
Dawn - I hope to feel the burning sun
Dawn - I hope it shines on everyone

Life is precious
Share your treasure

Dawn - Friends are here and then they're gone
Dawn - Now's the time to sing their song
Dawn - Hold me close till the evening comes
Dawn - Tomorrow calls like a distant drum

Who knows where life will lead
Or if I'll see you again
Just like rivers flow to the sea
We'll all be together in the end
Track Name: Summer Will Never Last
Excited children
Playing in the sand
Running and laughing
Buckets in their hands

Their parents smile
Hope for a while
That this moment will never pass

They know that summer
Even long summer
They know that summer will never last

Beautiful garden
So green in the sun
Old woman weeding
Knows the day is done

Her trowel is digging
Her heart is singing
Even as shadows creep on past

She knows that summer
Even long summer
She knows that summer will never last

We were young lovers
Hid behind the dune
Time seemed to stand still
When we met in June

August is fading
Seasons are changing
Who knew that life went by so fast

We know that summer
Even long summer
We know that summer will never last

Will never last
Will never last
Track Name: I Played With Fire
It's funny how when the Sun goes down
The creeps all come out in this town
But I will still wait around for you

Even fools one day learn
Play with fire and get burned

Did you think you'd pass with grace
When confronted with distaste
But I will always state the case for you

Even fools one day learn
Play with fire and get burned

Even fools one day learn
Play with fire and get burned

I played with fire and I got burned
I played with fire and I got burned
I played with fire and I got burned by you

I played with fire and I got burned
I played with fire and I got burned
I played with fire and I got burned by you

I played with fire
I played with fire
Track Name: We All Go Home
Come on Mary sit with me
Underneath the apple tree
We won't let the serpent spoil
Our wonderful day with his lies uncoiled

We all go home
No one is alone
No fear is ever known
We all go home

Please let's hurry, don't be late
We're all meeting at Heaven's gate
Pack no trouble in your case
If you do it's all for waste

Come on, Mary, pray with me
As we burn down the apple tree
With your bare foot I have read
You will crush the serpent's head
Track Name: Words We Understand
Had our share of saviors
Sent to save the Earth
Million murdered martyrs
Died for love and church

Towers built to heaven
Rockets into space
Genius mathematician
Mother full of grace

Now's the time for miracles
Not for slight of hand
Please don't speak in parables
Use words we understand
Words we understand

Credit card consumers
Driving down the wage
Aging Baby Boomers
Take more than they made

Empty vessel leaders
Leaders lost in lust
Brainless bottom feeders
In this God we trust

Now's the time for miracles
Not for slight of hand
Please don't speak in parables
Use words we understand
Words we understand
Track Name: I Knew You When
So now your young bones have grown tired
And the lines on your face they don't lie
As you drift like a ghost through the night
And the stars in your eyes have all died
And the stars in your eyes have all died

So now you would have me believe
That somewhere I hold all the keys
That will open the doors to your dreams
But in truth you have always been free
But in truth you have always been free

And I knew you when
I knew you when

So now you softly slip away
Your pale skin turns concrete grey
As the poison pumps through your veins
And I cry as your life slowly fades
And I cry as your life slowly fades

And I knew you when
I knew you when
Track Name: The Last Beautiful Day
Everyone was packing and heading home
On the last beautiful day
We had the beach cottage all alone
On the last beautiful day

The last beautiful day we had
Was such a beautiful day
The last beautiful day we had
Was such a beautiful day

You were tanning in the sun
On the last beautiful day
Your toes were tapping to the chords I strummed
On the last beautiful day

The last beautiful day we had
Was such a beautiful day
The last beautiful day we had
Was such a beautiful day

We made love to a sweet serenade
Gulls laughing high above the gently rolling waves

We kissed goodbye as the sun went down
On the last beautiful day
We bid farewell to the ocean town
On the last beautiful day

The last beautiful day we had
Was such a beautiful day
The last beautiful day we had
Was such a beautiful day

The last beautiful day we had
Was such a beautiful day
The last beautiful day we had
Was such a beautiful day
