Track Name: Shooting Stars
She’s in the middle of something great
And yet she cannot recognize
She’s full of beauty, full of grace
She’s got her eyes shooting stars
Lost chords when she plays guitar
God’s singing, hurry, don’t be late

The ways of love are stranger than you thought
If this is Love, than Love is all she’s got
It’s time for her
To set it free

She’s in the middle of something great
And yet she cannot recognize
She’s full of beauty, full of grace
She’s got her eyes shooting stars
Lost chords when she plays guitar
God’s singing, hurry, don’t be late

And in the end she’s just like anybody else
She’s always running to and from herself
It’s time for her
To set it free
The voice that spells
What’s in her heart
Track Name: Bright Young Hope
Open way
To the Bright Young Hope
Who decides
The explosions to happen
Who through them
A whole world now is free
Who does live
A lifetime a minute

I’m like that
Always temporary
Rising sleep
Snaking down through the veins
All the real things
In the castle of meaning
They mean well
Windblown whisper, never tell
Rising…

Open way
To the Bright Young Hope
Heroes of the zoo
They’re the cultural zero
Fiery streak
They are here to rescue
You from the machine
Universal take over
Over…

They’re like that
The proud national dream
The length of a day
To a lover may be
A thousand years
So is the flow of mine
Eternity will forever always ever persist
To the Bright Young Hope
Track Name: Shine on Us
It’s time for us to hit the road now
I’m gonna drive us to the land of the setting sun
So light a cigarette and feel the wind blowing your mind

The sky will be the entertainer
This road will take us to the place where we began
To behave like in our dreams
Nothing is quite what it seems
Feel the blues kickin’ in once again

And if you feel you need to rest
Lay your head down on my shoulder
I’ll be driving to the West
There will be our promised land
Where dreams come true
Our little Hollywood
The stars will shine on us, they’ll shine on us

Baby, you probably think I’m a fool
Honey I know I’ve let you down many times before
But all I ask from you is to trust me just one more time

So tell me then about this new plan
Honey I told you I will drive us to the West
There we’ll be taken care of
Our dreams will hit the shore
I’ll stop running from the Law, please come with me

And if you promise you will stay
Out of trouble all the way
I may leave with you tonight
‘Cos I’m still in love with you
That is so true
You’re my little Hollywood
The stars will shine on us, they’ll shine on us
Shine on us
Track Name: Snake Charmer
Hit, dive, daydream
You’ve got atomic eyes
And know that you belong
A night walk whisper
Thoughts in reverse
Be still and listen to them now

Sing your life away

You are the snake and the snake charmer
At the same time all the way
You have been in so many songs
Now it’s time to sing along
You sang along so you could free yourself
There’re so many things you brought in you
You have been in so many songs
Now it’s time to sing along

Life is something so invincible
So let tomorrow be
You should keep track of all your dreams come true
Don’t mind the feathers burning now

Sing your life away

You are the snake and the snake charmer
At the same time all the way
You have been in so many songs
Now it’s time to sing along
You sang along so you could free yourself
There’re so many things you brought in you
You have been in so many songs
Now it’s time to sing along
Track Name: Boys 'n' Girls
Boys ‘n’ Girls
Blasting love
Nevermind if
They shoot you down
The love that once
Was by our side
Faded black
And cast aside
Eleven years
Set us apart
Eleven days
Back to the start
We were lost and found
We’re back in place
And then again
We fall in love

Fast fading twilight opened skies
And the skies are opened to your dreams
Sun sunning in right from your eyes
All the crimson joy of new found love
Queen of the rosebud garden girls
All in gloss of satin and glimmer pearls
The sons and the daughters, boys and girls
They’re falling in love, they’re falling in love
And we’re drowning love
We’re drowning in this feeling
I was lost until you found me
I was messing with myself, then you found me

Boys ‘n’ Girls
Across the hall
They congregate
They break the walls
They strove to seize
The inmost flame
Translucent love
One and the same
For they are young
And unmistaken
A milestone
A prize not taken
Am I in love?
Is this a dream?
Or just the sound of another day

Carry, carry on, people carry on
‘Cos I care about you ‘n’ you care ‘bout me
Times Square campfire teenage spree
Just a fleeting flare of later spring
Queen of the rosebud garden girls
All in gloss of satin and glimmer pearls
The sons and the daughters, boys and girls
They’re falling in love, they’re falling in love
And we’re drowning love
We’re drowning in this feeling
I was lost until you found me
I was messing with myself, then you found me

Boys ‘n’ Girls
Of troubled times
Your passion’s bold
Your timing’s right
You live through this
You cut through here
You capture Time
With trendy hearts
It’s Summertime
In Crimson Lake
Bohemian nights
And beatnik days
Eternal life of brevity
A second of eternity

Boys ‘n’ Girls,
Heart ‘n’ soul
Heaven ‘n’ hell
Rock ‘n’ Roll
You fell in love
A righteous love
It’s time to ring them bells
