Track Name: Until Tonight
We’ve been lyin’ We’ve been cheatin’
We’ve been throwin’ it all away
No more winning
Out of innings,… we’ve got
No more games to play

We’ve both lived inside this big lie
And our final two words were goodbye
Until Tonight 2x

Been mistreated, feel defeated
Broken shields by our sides
Feeling queasy
Stomach’s heaving
From the passion left inside

So much more than who’s wrong or who’s right
Such a darkness has blocked our love’s light
Until Tonight 4x

So we’ve hated and been jaded
Never trust a thing we say
Unaffected
Disconnected
Never wanted it this way

I thought that our love had run dry
Until Tonight
Until Tonight 3x

(Coda Vamp)

We’ve been lyin’
We’ve been cheatin’ baby
We’ve thrown it all away
No more games to play

Track Name: Magic
And I don’t feel like singing much today
Unless you’re playin’ the blues
Cause my baby’s gone and my music don’t get played
Life’s not playin’ by my rules, no
Each day’s the same, the sun rises and it sets
I keep wondering what for
Lookin’ for work – it’s just another day

(TURN)

Lord I miss the magic – oh I miss the magic
Of the way her smile always eased my heart
And her kisses touched my soul
But now she’s gone – our roads are far apart
We couldn’t have both a rock and roll

(TURN)

And I’d give anything – oh I’d give everything

CHORUS:

For that Magic
She soothes me with her gentle voice
The Magic
Of her sweet little smile
It’s Magic
She can move a mountain with the way she walks
That Magic
She’s got that magic style

I wrote a letter sayin’ Mr. President
Gots to give me some good news
Ain’t got no way to pay my rent
Now somebody stole my shoes
Each day’s the same, the sun rises and it sets
I keep wondering what for (what for)
Cause there ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

(TURN)

Oh I miss the magic – Lord I miss the magic (mmmmm yeah)

Saxophone solo

I didn’t feel like singing much today
‘til I started playin’ some blues
Then it hit me – it’s a brand new day
Time to play by my own rules

(TURN)

But I’d still do anything – Lord I’d give everything

CHORUS 2X:

For that Magic
She soothes me with her gentle voice
The Magic
Of her crazy little smile
It’s Magic
She can move a mountain with the way she walks
That Magic
She’s got that magic style

Track Name: It's Alright
It’s 3:45 and I’m still alive
Don’t know how much longer I can hold on tonight
But when she wraps her arms around me and
She holds me oh so tight
The only sounds I hear are our hearts
Beating softly in the night
And she says that It’s Alright

Newark to Fresno and each town in between
Sounds cliché but if you live it you know what I mean
You’re the stranger in town again yeah
Lonely but never alone
When you wake up in the morning light
You know the night before is gone
And you’re wondering where is home?

Heaven’s in Denver it made the whole damn thing worthwhile
We played all through the night and everybody smiled
But when the roadies took the stage
All the people had a place to go
While we all loaded up our trucks
To head for San Diego or Tucson
Hell I don’t know
Long as the beer is cold

It’s 3:45 and and I’m still alive
Don’t know how much longer I can hold on tonight
There are mornings that I wish
I did not know my name
I look in the mirror and ask myself
Why I play this game
Then she says that It’s Alright
That she loved the show last night
And she holds me tight

Track Name: Going Nowhere
Like a fish swimming in a bowl
Like a bird trapped in a cage
Like a car racing ‘round a track
Like a song with just one chord

(chorus harmony)

Going Nowhere
Lovin’ you to me there’s no other
Lovin’ you while you love another
Without you I’m going nowhere
Yeah going nowhere

(chorus harmony)

Going Nowhere

Track Name: Old Dreams
He’s sittin’ alone
Radio on
Dreamin’ ‘bout days gone by
When he could’ve hit the scene
A new James Dean
Now he wonders why
Come 9AM
Punch that clock again
Then fight the traffic at 5
Radio says
What he already knows
Old Dreams don’t wanna die

(chorus)

Old Dreams
If only he could find those
Old Dreams
Turn back the hands of time
Old Dreams
Keepin’ him alive
Old Dreams

6-string in the closet
Hasn’t touched a pen
Fears the words won’t rhyme
There’s an 8 x 10
Looks at now and then
Wipes a teardrop from his eye
At the local bar
Sits tying one on
Watch the latest thing give it a try
Finds it hard to face
Caught up in the race
Old Dreams don’t wanna die

(chorus)

Old Dreams
If only he could find those
Old Dreams
Turn back the hands of time
Old Dreams
Keepin’ him alive
Old Dreams

(bridge)

Every morning he wakes up to the same
Pressed shirts
Silk ties
Commuter train

(chorus)

Old Dreams
If only he could find those
Old Dreams
Turn back the hands of time
Old Dreams
Keepin’ him alive
Old Dreams

Track Name: The Crazy Things I Say
Been thinkin’ ‘bout you girl all the time each day
Thinkin’ ‘bout our time together and the music that we play
I don’t know if it’s wrong or right but there’s something I just gotta say…

I’ve known you all my life and I’ve known you for just a day
Then again I don’t know you at all cuz your heart is so far away and
I don’t wanna scare you any further with these Crazy Things I Say

(bridge)

Things like….
Girl I love you and I really don’t care why
It’s this overpowering feeling and it’s makin’ me so high
I’d give up everything I’d got - oh yeah just to make you mine
I’d love to share some dreams with you
If you only…

(chorus)

If you only had the time…
How I wish that you were mine
I’d love you ‘til the very end of time

I’ve known you all my life and I’ve known you for just a day
Then again I don’t know you at all cuz your heart is so far away and
I don’t wanna scare you any further with these Crazy Things I Say

(bridge)

Things like….
Girl I love you and I really don’t care why
It’s this overpowering feeling and it’s makin’ me so high
I’d give up everything I’d got - oh yeah just to make you mine
I’d love to make your dreams come true
If you only…

(chorus)

If you only had the time…
How I wish that you were mine
I’d love you ‘til the very end of time

Track Name: Just The Other Day
It happened just the other day
A crazy man went sane
(a crazy man went sane)
The headlines read his mind's gone dead
But he didn't feel the pain

It happened just the other day
A blind man saw the truth
He saw the light in the dark of the night
While he read tomorrow's news

Crazy People, Crazy World
Change the channel on the tube
My horizontal hold is broken and I can't hear a word that's spoken
But I'm sure I've seen this show before

It happened just the other day
The world turned upside down
On the roller coaster ride and again on the giant slide
But my feet were on the ground

Crazy People, Crazy World
Nothing much to lose
The man on the radio says outside it's hot but it's gonna snow and
The only happy songs are the blues

It happened just the other day
The sun rose in the west
In the institution they planned a revolution
But they forgot to do the rest

Crazy People, Crazy World
Change from day to day
And when our past returns tomorrow and all our joys turn into sorrows (maybe)
Then we'll stop these games we play

It happened just the other day...

Track Name: Try To Remember (Alan's Song)
I’ve known since my childhood days
Don’t you go out and get half-crazed
You can have your cake and eat it too
Hey listen, Junior – I’m telling you
Stop thinking those silly notions
Runnin’ away – overdosing
The quitter’s way is not for you
You’ll get what you want if you just see it through

CHORUS:

You gotta try to remember – life is OK
You can’t wait for tomorrow – better get it all today
You gotta try to remember that while you still believe
Put your backbone in it – you’re gonna receive
You gotta try!

Love’s no good if you don’t wanna show it
It’s there for the taking – I know you won’t blow it
Open your heart – I know you can
Love will lead you to that promised land

CHORUS:

You gotta try to remember – life is OK
You can’t wait for tomorrow – better get it all today
You gotta try to remember that while you still believe
Put your backbone in it – you’re gonna receive
You gotta try to remember that you are my friend
Together we’re gonna reach that pot of gold at that rainbow’s end
You gotta try!

Track Name: Where You Belong (A Tribute To The Beatles)
Fallen Star. Where have you been lately?
What has happened to our Billy Shears?
They say you've gotten older 16 last time I heard
So has living in the garden calmed your fears?

Peace and love. You jumped up on the wagon
I've bet you figured that it would make amends
The top has gotten lonely so get back where you belong
'Cause you're barely getting by without your friends.

What is life? Why don't you ask your guru?
He'll tell you while your guitar gently weeps.
They claim you were forgotten. A dark horse that's for sure.
But the money's piling up in great big heaps.

Bangladesh. We thank you for caring
I'll bet you figured that it would make amends
The top has gotten lonely so get back where you belong
'Cause you're barely getting by without your friends.

Come Together Lonely Hearts Club. Don't you know all things must pass?
So tell me how do you sleep with your heads filled up with grass?
Please enjoy your golden slumbers. The mystery tour was great.
The long and winding road is gone but I guess you can't relate.

Imagine. Now I am the Walrus
Hey whatever gets you through the night
And what about Oh Yoko? (Watch out! Helter Skelter!)
Don't you know that all good soldiers want to fight?
LSD. You took us to the onion.
I'll bet you figured that it would make amends.
The top has gotten lonely so get back where you belong
Cause you're barely getting by without your friends.

Uncle Albert. Are you really sorry?
Turn me on dead man with your new wings
You gave me the answer. The crimson dynamo
Does your love really believe the things you sing?
Mr. Kite. So you say you've had enough?
I'll bet you figured that it would make amends.
The top has gotten lonely so get back where you belong
Cause you're barely getting by without your friends.

Come Together Lonely Hearts Club. Don't you know all things must pass?
So tell me how do you sleep with your heads filled up with grass?
Please enjoy your golden slumbers. The mystery tour was great.
The long and winding road is gone but I guess you can't relate.
