Track Name: Ever Enlivened
Ever enlivened - with possibility
Endlessly furnished - with passion and play
Edged with distinction - and her blood runs free
Moonlight on her cheeks - tears of discovery

Here she comes again, for the first time
Crossing that bridge again, for the first time
She's on fire again, for the first time
At home in my arms again, Like the first time

We're weaving a basket - with possibility
We're making a home - for passion and play
We're coming together - forever in a day
We're walking on the moon - And we’re walking anyway

Here we go again, for the first time
We're crossing that bridge again, for the first time
We're on fire again, for the first time
Freshly squeezed again, Like the first time

Ever a lover - since the beginning
She makes time - for passion and play
She follows me home and slides me some breakfast
And looking in her eyes I’m on my way

Here we go again, for the first time
We're crossing that bridge again, for the first time
We're on fire again, for the first time
Arm in arm in arm again, just like the first time
Track Name: The Next Man
The Next Man:

Right under my nose
The power was surging
The movement was building
And gathering steam
It swept me away
And I am still sailing
On water on fire
Engulfed by the dream

(Chorus)
Our hands are strong
Our fears are few
Our hearts are open
And our sprits are new
And we thank those before us
For standing and waiting
As we pass the gift
To the next man

How was it so hidden?
How did I escape?
How could I not notice,
The sound of the sea?
My lifeboat was sinking
My freedom was failing
My fountain was frozen
When you came to me

(Chorus)

Now that I’m on board
My service is clear
My witness of oneness
is welcomed by all
My mission is moving
My madness is matched
And passed by my will
To break the next fall

(Chorus)
Track Name: Your Love brings me back to my Home
With this bond oh so real
I can see and I can feel
How your love...

With this kiss that we share
To the heavens I declare
That your love...

All my life I've been searching for the truth
I'm a man who knows life was made for two
And I want, nothing less than all of you
In my arms

With your hand wrapped in mine
I can peak into the divine
And your love...

As the seasons come and go
Bringing sunshine rain and snow
Your love...

All my life...

Now are hearts fire as one
I've done all that must be done
And I've only just begun, coming home

With this touch brave and new
We are one where we were two
And your love is guiding me through to my home
Track Name: Two of a Kind
Two of a kind, since forever
You keep on keepin' on, like a pair of dice
Packin' it in, till the sun sets
Listening to your hearts, and growing ever

She's a little bit younger
Gotta face like an angel
Raised up in California
Not too bad off

He's a handsome devil
Got a clef in his chin
No one knows where he's been
He did a lot of life solo

Friends of friends for a while
And occupado con amigos otros
You didn't see it comin' from the start
You bumped along and didn't notice

Chorus

He took a risk, she wasn't sure
You weren't ready for what was coming
Nothing prepared you for, the rest of your lives

Wedding bells rang, on the west coast
Sand between your toes. Nobody knew what you'd do
A trip to Europe and those voice were calling

Snoopy and orange trees welcomed all three
Your hands got full late in the sixties
The life you lived - Gone forever in a cloud of kids

The ice cream man - and the broker
The court reporter, with your carbon copies
Drawing houses and selling vacuums
Moving up she's a paralegal

Screeching tires and AYSO
Goodbye Malibu - Goodbye padres
You took a leap of faith and
We ended up in a fruit basket

One afternoon - came a paper
Which changed the context
Of your careers and changed forever
Your outlook on the future

In the church of skiing
You were the pastors
Showing your sons a new set of masters
Where fun and recreation were at the top of the world.

Go on guy. Go on gal.
Here’s to you, and here’s to now
Tomorrow will tell, of two lives lived well

Go on honey. Go on babe.
You got your mountains and I’ve got my cave
Two of a kind, since forever yeah

Go on Stefan. Go on Steve.
You got your Lakers, and I’ve got my trees
Two of a kind, since forever yeah

Go on mom. Go on dad.
You’re the best parents that we’ve ever had
Two of a kind, since forever yeah

Go on lovers. Go on world.
Go on guys. Go on girls.
Whether it’s straight or whether it curls - Two of a Kind!
Track Name: Me and The Sun
Up on the mountain top
Top of the waterfall
Top of the universe
Just me and the sun

Out in the big wide blue
Nothing but earth and sky
Endlessly riding high
Just me and the sun

Me and the sun, like never before
Like never again, never-ending
Me and the sun, like never before
Like fire and flames, like love

Miles from the world below
The edge of where we don't know
Where only the lovers go
Just me and the sun

Up on the mountain top
Top of the waterfall
Top of the universe
Just me and the sun

The light on the walls has a way of showing me
Wherever I am is where I'm supposed to be.
Track Name: The River
Some people say it’s simple, in this life to make a splash
Follow your bliss, your passion, your dreams, dive in deep and be the stream
Whatever happens these brilliant ones say is what is meant to be
I’ve got no use for ideas like that,  that leave me broke and alone but free

I don’t trust the river, I just know I’m gonna drown
My dreams are full of danger, I’ve got to shoot them down
Every day I’m waiting by the banks with my fears and doubts
I don’t trust The River, guess I’ll be sitting this float out.

I’ve had a look at the rapids, I’ve seen the edge of the falls,
Why would I listen to anyone who tells me - to heed The River’s calls?
The river asks me to sing out loud and share myself with the world
What kind of crap is that I say? They’ll laugh and smirk and sail away.

I don’t trust The River, I just know I’m gonna drown
My dreams are full of danger, I’ve got to shoot them down
Every day I’m waiting by the banks with my fears and doubts
I’d jump in with those carefree fools, but it’s simply not safe to go out.

I’ve seen so many struggling to swim, in the currents so swift so strong
Lost in the waves then crashed on the rocks, and swept helplessly along
Towards the endless sea they flail, gasping and risking it all
I’ve got more sense than that I’ll keep my life nice and safe and small.

Bridge:
I didn’t get what I needed, to be a risk taking man
I never learned the ropes of my ship to get too far from land
And while I hope for a life of true freedom,  to come my way
I don’t hold my breath for fear that I might not like that day.

Chorus: I don't trust….

My backup plan is simple, I use it every day
Stay in the comfort of what I know and everything will be OK.
I do what I am expected to do, I keep myself in line
I’ve never fallen too far so far and everything’s going just fine.

My tears they try to trick me, into thinking that I’ve got a chance
To live a life of passion, to join into that golden dance
I start to get excited, about a future that’s bright and bold
The I come to my senses and get back into the fold.
Track Name: Shooting the Moon with a Pair of Broken Hearts
We left our lives
But who's to blame?
We're just two people
Not enough and too much the same

We made our vows
And we forgot what we said
We used to live in one house
We used to sleep in one bed

We lost our way on the way to forever
We tried so hard and now we're far apart
We both thought time would bring us sunny weather
Now we're shooting the moon with a pair of broken hearts

Tears on my pillow
And just as cliché as it seems
My nights are empty
Until I'm joined in my dreams

Now I'm up and I'm down
Like the tides of a raging sea
I'm breaking a twenty-year habit
Of together, you and me

We lost our way on the way to forever
We tried so hard and now we're far apart
We both thought time would bring us sunny weather
Now we're shooting the moon with a pair of broken hearts
Track Name: Equatorial Peet
As we move through this universe
Everybody longs to be free
Like the wings of an astronaut
Washed ashore at Waikiki
Time will tell if we hit the mark
Or if we burn up in the atmosphere
Either way, we've done our duty right
We wake up and say goodnight
We merge into the light
We live forever and speak without spite

Long ago there lived a wise man
He was wiser than most anyone
His travels took him all around the world
He shed his clothes in the noonday sun
He liked the equatorial latitudes
The Arctic regions never drew him near
His tan was really quite phenomenal
But he never let it go to his head
He'd rather think about life instead


Beyond perfection of carressing winds
The frightening hand of fate is calling you
There lies a banished individual
Whose life has left a mark forever untrue
And colors of the evening hide it not
And scents of jasmine cannot clear the air
When troubles reep their changing attitudes
And lovely ladies start to stare at dudes
That's when I find myself in cosmic moods
Which take me back to morning interludes.
Track Name: I Exploded in Passion
I changed my mind
I changed my socks
I changed my life
From sucks to rocks

I changed my outlook
I changed my vision
I changed my perception
When I exploded in passion

I exploded in passion
It's all over the place
It's in my heart
And it's on my face
I exploded in passion
And you can too
Reach down in the darkness
And discover you.

I changed my dreams
I changed my desires
I changed my expectations
I set 'em on fire

I changed my name
I changed my voice
I changed my skin
I made a powerful choice

(Chorus)
The golden you.
Track Name: Your Love... (reprise)
With this bond oh so real
I can see and I can feel
How your love...

With this kiss that we share
To the heavens I declare
That your love...

All my life I've been searching for the truth
I'm a man who knows life was made for two
And I want, nothing less than all of you
In my arms...

With your hand wrapped in mine
I can peak into the divine
And your love...

As the seasons come and go
Bringing sunshine rain and snow
Your love...

All my life...

Now are hearts fire as one
I've done all that must be done
And I've only just begun, coming home

With this touch brave and new
We are one where we were two
And your love is guiding me through to my home
