I consider myself a lucky one. I consider it fortunate, just knowing where I’m from. But sometimes I can’t understand Why people look so down, when they’re walking in the sand. Cause we’re living where roads run to the ocean. We’re living where new life can be found. So I won’t let my worries hold me down, the time is now. Come along, come along, life is short just take my hand Come along, come along, it feels so good you can’t understand. Come along, come along, if you want some change just take a chance For Love, we’ll make it, cause you feel just like Home. Well I don’t want to waste my time, but I’ve gotta let it go Cause if you hold on to peace of mind, then you never let it grow. But if it’s not one thing, then it’s the other, You got the bread and jelly, but not the peanut butter. Sounds like a corny metaphor, but it’s true, So ketchup with the rules or you’re playing to lose. Come along, come along, life is short just take my hand Come along, come along, it feels so good you can’t understand. Come along, come along, if you want some change just take a chance For Love, we’ll make it, cause you feel just like Home. Cause we’re living where roads run to the ocean. We’re living where new love can be found. So I won’t let my worries hold me down, the time is now. Come along, come along, life is short just take my hand Come along, come along, it feels so good you can’t understand. Come along, come along, if you want some change just take a chance For Love, we’ll make it, cause you feel just like Home.

Smile 03:13
There, there ain’t nothing sweeter, Than lying next to you on Sunday afternoon, can’t you feel it? Oh, we could take today to let our worries fade away, See we’ve got it all, if you just want to Smile. There, there ain’t nothing sweeter, Than being where we are and having what we have, don’t you see it? Oh, let’s take today to let our worries fade away, See we’ve got it all, if you just want to Smile. There, there ain’t nothing sweeter, Than being where you are, and having what you have, don’t you see it now? Oh, you could take today to let your worries fade away, See you’ve got it all, when you just want to Smile. Yeah when you’ve got it all, you just want to Smile.

Rise Up 03:00
Oh, oh don’t you fight this feeling Oh, oh this simple truth, reveal it Oh, oh now’s the time for you to Rise Up. This land’s become second-hand to the purposes and the progress of man. A quick fix is a risky plan when playing it safe now means taking a chance. But I know out of life comes truth, like out of darkness the light pokes through. We can turn it around, it’s our choice to choose. Cause when you’ve got nothing, there’s nothing to lose. Oh, oh don’t you fight this feeling Oh, oh this simple truth, reveal it Oh, oh now’s the time for you to Rise Up. Well I cannot find myself, the quiet life is somewhere else. See when these roads show no signs for home, then you must build your own. So give it to me one time to spread the love. Give it to me two times to bless those above. Bring it back three times for the dreams we pursue. And four for me, for you. Oh, oh don’t you fight this feeling Oh, oh this simple truth, reveal it Oh, oh now’s the time for you to Rise Up. Oh, oh don’t you fight this feeling Oh, oh this simple truth, reveal it Oh, oh now’s the time for you to Rise Up.

Everybody plays the fool, sometimes There’s no exception to the rule, listen baby It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain’t lying Everybody plays the fool. Falling in love is such an easy thing to do. But there’s no guarantee that the one you love is gonna love you. Lovin’ eyes they cannot see, a certain person could never be. Love runs deeper than any ocean, it feels your heart with emotion. Everybody plays the fool, sometimes There’s no exception to the rule, listen baby It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain’t lying Everybody plays the fool. What can you do once the music starts to play. And your ability to reason is swept away. Heaven on earth is all you see. You’re out of touch with reality. And then you cry, but when you do, next time around someone cries for you. Everybody plays the fool, sometimes There’s no exception to the rule, listen baby It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain’t lying Everybody plays the fool. Everybody plays the fool, sometimes There’s no exception to the rule, listen baby It may be factual, it may be cruel, I ain’t lying Everybody plays the fool.

All I Want 03:40
He was lying by her side Wondering if she’d stay, maybe just another day. Wishing they just had more time Or if something he could say would make it any other way. He said: I don’t care if this won’t last forever, cause there’s nothing better than this I don’t care if nothing lasts forever, cause there’s nothing better than this To lay here all alone is to give you all I’ve got This place could fall apart, and all I’d want is you So she stopped to think of what he said Cause she’d never felt a love like this. There was hope and there was wonder, yeah But it always came from other’s lips. So she told him something he would never let go of She said: Before the summer ends there’s just one thing I should say Well I don’t care if nothing lasts forever, cause there’s nothing better than this See all I know is we could last forever, since there’s nothing better than this To lay here all alone is to give you all my heart This place could fall apart, man all I want is you I don’t care if nothing lasts forever, cause there’s nothing better than this I’ve got no doubt we’re gonna last forever, cause there’s nothing better than this To lay here all alone is to give you all I’ve got This place could fall apart, and all I’d want is you To lay here all alone is to give you all my heart, now This love is all I’ve got, and all I want is you.
