2) Brand New Love Affair-Part I and II -J. Pankow-

Wish I knew what was going wrong

Seems so very long since we laughed together

It's no good to be all alone

When you hurt a friend

And you both feel empty

What I'd give to erase the pain

Will we ever make friends

Is it over or shall we try again

For a brand new love affair

Seems to me

We are both afraid

That our love may fade and we just won't make it

Maybe soon we'll be friends again

Find ourselves and then

Really make it happen

What I'd give to erase the pain

Will we every make friends

Is it over or shall we try again

For a brand new love affair

Start all over again

And do it up the right way

Come together my friend

And celebrate the new day

I can hardly believe

How much I really love you baby

All our tomorrows will be

A love affair with you my lady


3) Never Been In Love Before -R. Lamm-

I've never been in love before

Not like this you taught me more

How among myself will I

Lift up on myself and cry

'Cause I thought I could not give

My thought would not let me live

How my feeling disappeared

You are lovely reason I

Am alive you satisfy

All my senses and you give

Me the confidence to grow

In a thousand different ways

Happy just to spend the days

Of my lifetime by your side

I want to be

Everything that I can

I want so much

To be more of a man

I want to grow

I want to know you better

Each day I'll try

To love you

'Cause I've never been in love before

You have a friend for life in me

If we ever disagree

If you have to go away

I will set you free with time

'Cause your hapiness is mine

May our light forever shine

When you always feel free

I want to be

Everything that I can

I want so much

To be more of a man

I want to live

I want to give my lifetime

Each day I'll try

To love you

'Cause I've never been in love before


4) Hideaway -P. Cetera-

You know I gotta go

Got to find a place

Get away

From the human race

Find a place where the air is clear

On a sunny day, sunny day

I got to find

A Hideaway, hideaway

Hideaway

Hideaway

Hideaway

Hideaway

You know I gotta leave

Got to find a place, any place

Get away

From the city pace, city pace

I gotta go out where the air is fresh and clear

On a sunny day, sunny day

And I got to find

A hideway, yeah yeah


5) Till We Meet Again -T. Kath-

I want to share the love that fills my being

If your willing

Come along

Take of me this evening and this love

If you're lonely

Come let's be

There's no time for shyness

How fast night turns to day

Let's just light love's fire

And lay embraced till it burns away

Kiss goodbye and journey on to new loves

Keep your own love

Till we meet again

6) Harry Truman -R. Lamm-

America needs you

Harry Truman

Harry could you please come home

Things are looking bad

I know you would be mad

To see what kind of men

Prevail upon the land you love

America's wondering

How we got here

Harry all we get is lies

We're gettin' safer cars

Rocket ships to mars

From men who'd sell us out

To get themselves a piece of power

We'd love to hear you speak your mind

In plain and simple ways

Call a spade a spade

Like you did back in the day

You would play piano

Each morning walk a mile

Speak of what was going down

Eith honesty and style

America's calling

Harry Truman

Harry you know what to do

The world is turnin' round and losin' lots of ground

Oh Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love

Oh woah woah woah

America's calling

Harry Truman

Harry you know what to do

The world is turnin' round

And losin' lots of ground

So Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love

Oh

Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love

Harry

Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love


7) Oh Thank You Great Spirit -T. Kath-

Pulling myself out of a dead sleep

With the impression of the dream still fresh in my mind

Before I'm even awake, the words, the music were complete

I woke up that mornin'

Feelin' so rested and young

My mind was clear of all the problems

That been hasslin' my head

I couldn't quite understand why

I felt so fine

I felt so free

So beyond it all

As I turned towards the bed

I understood as all came clear

As I turned towards the bed

I understood as all came clear

I saw myself lyin' there

Didn't have a care

Piece of mind was finally mine

Now free to fly

Into the blue sky

Oh great spirit

Fly away

Oh great spirit

Just fly

Fly

Oh fly away


8) Long Time No See -R. Lamm-

What you been doin, ain't you got no one

Where you been keepin' yourself my friend

Have you been hidin' underground writin'

Foolin' yourself in your special way

Where's your old lady

She was a nice girl

Maybe it's best that she went away

You will be losin' nothing can change you

Hapiness spits in your face always

Where are you going, what will you see there

You never learn nothin' by runnin' away

What you been doin, ain't you got no one

Where you been keepin' yourself my friend

Lonliness growin' Emptiness showin'

Finding your peace two or three times a day

three times a day


9) Ain't It Blue? -R. Lamm-

Done the things I said I would

Some of them were pretty good

Suddenly they changed the game

I only know it's not the same no more

I don't know what to do the rules I knew

Ain't it sad

Ain't it sad

Ain't it true

Ain't it true

Ain't it blue

Ain't it blue

The life i live is pretty nice

Of course I had to pay a price

Lots of folks depend on me

Erase all kinds of slavery

I don't know what to do the rules I knew

Ain't it sad

Ain't it sad

Ain't it true

Ain't it true

Ain't it blue

Ain't it blue

Ain't it blue

Sometimes I want to walk away

I felt like that just yesterday

But when this song is in my head

I try my best 'till I'm dead and gone

I don't know what to do the rules I knew

Ain't it sad

Ain't it sad

Ain't it true

Ain't it true

Ain't it blue

Ain't it blue

Ain't it blue


10) Old Days -J. Pankow-

Old days

Good times I remember

Fun days

Filled with ship of pleasure

Drive-in movies

Comic books and blue jeans

Howdy Doody

Baseball cards and birthdays

Please take me back

To the world gone away

Memories

Seem like yesterday

Old days

Good times I remember

Gold days

Days I'll always treasure

Funny faces

Full of love and laughter

Funny places

Summer nights and streetcars

Take me back

To the world gone away

Our good memories

Seem like yesterday

Old days...
