Track Name: Get Me Out of LA
I love thunder in July and staring at the sky
As the lightning flashes
1 2 3 and 4 and 5 – Seconds = Miles
Do you find this boring?

Rain starts pouring
Trees are roaring
wind is howling ooooh oooh ooooh
drink my tea - stare at the tree
LA’s Way Too Sunny For ME!

I love snowy winter days - you love fashion and ballets
I Miss New York
Gray’s Papaya If it doesn’t Close – Bowery Ballroom For some shows
We’ll Grab a Slice From Joe’s

Back In LA - It’s Sunny Every Day
Not A Cloud In Sight - ooooh oooh ooooh
Sun In My Eyes – No Fireflies
I Cant Take It Anymore – With This SUNSHINE!

I love LA
Like anyone I love a sunny day
But I miss the thunder and the rain
Get me out of LA - Get Me Out of LA

Back in LA The Skies Never Gray
It’s Like They’re Chasing the Clouds Away
Sun In My Eyes – No Fireflies
I can’t Take It Anymore – With This SUNSHINE!

I love LA
Like anyone I love a sunny day
But I miss the thunder and the rain
Get Me Out of LA – Get Me Out of LA

I love LA
Like anyone I love a sunny day
But I miss Just Walking In The Rain

Get me out of La - Get Me Out of LA
Get me out of LA - Ge me outta LA
Get Me Out of LA
Get This Sun
Out of my FACE
Track Name: If There's A Place
It's better when we're together In any kind of weather.
Don't matter if it's day or night I only wanna hold you tight and love you.

Lately I don't deserve you. I know I haven't been myself
and maybe I'm to young to know that all our foolish plans
Are slowly dying - Ahhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhh

If there's a place inside your broken heart for me
And though it's hard for you
Maybe someday you will understand
There's a place inside my heart for you.

As I lie here wide awake and think of you beside me
in that empty space.
This is the bed I made.
And maybe it's just better this way.

If there's a place inside your broken heart for me
I know it's hard for you
Maybe someday you will understand
If there's a place inside your broken heart for me
That's where I wanna be.
Maybe someday you will understand
There's a place inside heart for you.
Track Name: Two Is Better Than One
Do you have the blue kazoo cause I would love to play with you
We can share the microphone - Better two than me alone

You sing the high part and I’ll sing the low
We can pretend that were playing a show
And 200 people are swayin’ along

Can you play the tambourine?
On 2 and 4 not 1 and 3
And since were having so much fun
We should add the bass and drums

You sing the high part and I’ll sing the low
We can pretend that were playing a show
And 10,00 people are singin’ along

I might be flat you might be sharp
But I don’t care - cause we got heart
Before this song is done
Sing with me cause 2 is better than 1

You can play the xylophone or a toy piano with a crazy tone
Yeah we can share the microphone - better 2 than me alone

You sing the high part and I’ll sing the low
We can pretend that were playing a show
And I’ll catch your eye but you already know

I might be flat you might be sharp
But I don’t care - cause we got heart
Before this song is done
Sing with me cause 2 is better
I love it when we sing together
Sing with me cause 2 is better than 1
Track Name: 100 Million Light Years
Do you ever wonder what conspiracies are real?
Do aliens exist - do they love and touch and feel?

Do you trust the government to always tell the truth?
In a haze of social media the rich control the youth

Do you believe in heaven and hell?

And if I die will I be saved?
Is there really something more beyond the grave?
Is it really true - there’s an angel watching over you?

What if 911 wasn’t everything they say?
And the clouds you thought were real are just chemtrails being sprayed

Do you still believe we put a man up on the moon?
And Kennedy was shot by a solo crazy loon.

Do you believe in heaven and hell?

And when I die will I be saved?
Will my bones lay peacefully in my grave?
But if the saying’s true – the devil always gets his due.

Were just a hundred million light years from the truth
I miss having all the answers, the innocence of youth
Up in the stratosphere the sky is always blue
And gravity’s the only thing keeping me from you
Fire up the rocket ship I’ll save a space for you
It’s just a hundred million light years to the truth
Track Name: Tomorrow
Lord can you help me I’m tryin’ to pray
We don’t talk that much I don’t know what to say
But I’m down on my knees in desperate unease

Lord won’t you help me I’m out of my depth
The bottle is drunk and I’m empty again
The room is spinning the liquor is winning

Lord I don’t know what to do so I’m callin’ on you
Help me
I have lost all control. lord save my soul
And I’ll be good tomorrow.

Well the day’s about done feels good to be numb
As the radio plays an old Paul Williams Song
I’m sick and I’m tired - sad and unwired.

Oh Lord please forgive me the things that I’ve done
The battles hard fought that were not usually won
I regret all the lyin’ ..her cryin’ ...the damage I done

Lord I don’t know what to do so I’m callin’ on you
Help me
I have lost all control lord save my soul
And I’ll be good tomorrow

Lord I just need to break free – from this misery
Help me
Ease my worry and woe lord save my soul

And I’ll be good tomorrow. I’ll do better tomorrow.
I’ll do what I can tomorrow.
I’ll try my best
You know that goes
