    (Workin' On) The Dream

    When I was a kid in school
    Teacher asked what we would do
    When we stepped out into the world
    No longer boys and little girls
    All along my only plan
    Was that I’d be a happy man

    No self-doubt will derail me
    Faith hope and love won’t fail me
    I just keep on workin’ on the dream

    I grew up and moved around
    Tried new jobs in different towns
    But I knew deep down in my heart
    To put the horse before the cart
    Be thankful first then do your thing
    Make sure you’ve got a song to sing

    No self-doubt will derail me
    Faith hope and love won’t fail me
    I just keep on workin’ on the dream

    You have to hold on to your most outrageous dream
    Sometimes those visions aren’t as crazy as they seem

    Find the joy in every day
    Don’t get down and lose your way
    Every dream just might come true
    They will for some so why not you
    Just work it hard and don’t give up
    If you fall down just get back up

    Don’t let self-doubt derail us
    Faith hope and love won’t fail us
    We just keep workin’ on the dream

    Teardrop Train has left the station
    On a permanent vacation
    We just keep workin’ on the dream

    Shine In Shine Out

    What if every one of us who travel down this road
    Decide it’s time to work together now and lighten up the load
    Endless possibilities present themselves today
    And if we choose to work together we’ll create a better way to

    Let the light shine in
    Let the light shine in
    Let it flow into your soul
    ‘Til your spirit feels whole
    Let the light shine in
    Then
    Let your light shine out
    Let your light shine out
    Spread the glow all around
    ‘Til a shadow can’t be found
    Let your light shine out

    Soak in all the lovebeams from the sun into your spirit
    Let your passion be so real that they can see and they can hear it
    When nothing seems impossible to people full of grace
    It makes it easy to imagine we can build a better place to

    Let the light shine in
    Let the light shine in
    Let illumination flow
    ‘Til your eyeballs glow
    Let the light shine in
    Then
    Let your light shine out
    Let your light shine out
    Show the people everywhere
    You’re enlightened and you care
    Let your light shine out

    SpiritFruit

    Traffic jams and frauds and scams / And people who don’t give a damn
    Politics and selfie sticks / Crazies killing just for kicks
    News that’s fake and bad remakes / Frogs with three legs in the lakes
    Loss of jobs and banks that rob / “Meat” that’s just a greasy blob

    Just ignore the closing stores / And shop online for more and more
    Pile up debt with no regret / There’ll always be a safety net
    Spying drones no chaperones / Folks enamored with their phones
    Skin so tanned and sleight of hand/ Your profile says your life is grand

    And if I said I’ve always given my best
    I would be lying
    But still I know this life’s an ongoing test
    And I’ll be trying hard to pass along some

    Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness
    Gentleness, faithfulness and self control

    Food enhancers causing cancers / Looking for the easy answers
    Who only tries still wins a prize / Cheap imported merchandise
    Auto fumes and oil tycoons / We all can sing with auto-tune
    It’s fine as long as I’ve got mine / Someone else will toe the line

    And if I said I’ve never put myself first
    I would be lying
    But still I know the world is dying of thirst
    We should be trying to quench it, drench it with

    Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness
    Gentleness, faithfulness and self control

    I don’t believe what’s done is done / Let’s find a way back to square one
    Let’s put the hate back on the shelves / And love our neighbors as ourselves
    I don’t believe that it’s too late / To try and rehabilitate
    A single act of kindness is the perfect place to start

    Home For Good

    I can hear the homestead’s call
    It’s time to scale this ivory wall
    It didn’t shield me like I thought I would
    When I’ve conquered every mile
    And I see your welcome smile
    I’ll be home for good

    Home for good
    To the place I belong / With the family I’ve known
    And the friends that I’ve missed / All the people that love me

    Tears of joy will stain my face
    When I set foot inside that place
    That’s built with memories and bricks and wood
    I may break but I won’t bend
    ‘Cause when this journey’s at its end
    I’ll be home for good

    Home for good
    To the place I belong / With the family I’ve known
    And the friends that I’ve missed / All the people that love me

    And as I’m drawing near my heart is beating ever faster
    You’ll come running out the door
    And we will leap for joy like little lambs let out to pasture
    And we will sing / We will sing
    We will sing forevermore

    When life gets tough or even worse a bore
    I concentrate on what’s in store
    My guiding angel will not let me fall or lose my way
    The good life isn’t what it seems
    No more chasing empty dreams
    I’m going home for good

    Fare Thee Well

    Well we were looking for some good times
    I think we had a few as far as I can tell
    But if it’s time to say goodbye then fare thee well

    It really doesn’t hurt my feelings
    I kind of liked you but in love we never fell
    So if it’s time to say goodbye then fare thee well

    Fare thee well don’t make a sound
    Fare thee well I’ll see you ‘round
    It’s all good no hard feelings fare thee well

    I guess we’ll go our separate ways now
    I’d like to thank you for the time and wish you well
    A friendly hug before we go and fare thee well

    Fare thee well don’t make a sound
    Fare thee well I’ll see you ‘round
    It’s all good no hard feelings fare thee well

    I’d like to think that we can still be friendly
    Love comes in many different styles
    But let’s give it awhile

    Fare thee well don’t make a sound
    Fare thee well I’ll see you ‘round
    It’s all good no hard feelings fare thee well

    Rollin'

    Sometimes it hurts so bad
    Sometimes I feel so sad
    But I know that I'm a stronger man than I was yesterday
    And I will not faint beneath the load
    I’ll keep on rollin’ down the road

    Fumbling for the brakes I speed toward my judgment day
    Wondering if it's not too late to try and change my ways
    What’s happening to the coat of many colors that wear
    It’s unraveling at the seams and it’s getting me nowhere, and

    Sometimes it hurts so bad
    Sometimes I feel so sad
    But I know that I'm a stronger man than I was yesterday
    I will not faint beneath the load
    I’ll keep on rollin’ down the road

    Lord knows I want to do it right and so I count the cost
    Of laying down the easy life and picking up my cross
    I know that heaven's patriarchs are waiting 'round the bend
    And I'm daring to believe that I will see them in the end, so

    I’m gonna keep my cool
    Follow the Golden Rule
    And trust that I'm a better man than I was yesterday
    I will not faint beneath the load
    I’ll keep on rollin’ down the road

    I roll with the punches take life on the chin
    I’m not shadowboxing I’m fighting to win
    No victory shouts from the enemy camp
    I’ve stepped in the ring and I plan to be champ

    Sometimes it hurts so bad
    Sometimes I feel so sad
    But I know that I'm a better man than I was yesterday
    If I hit a detour I’ll just go the other way
    I’m gonna figure out this stuff before I’m old and gray
    And I will not faint beneath the load
    I’ll keep on rollin’ down the road

    Devil Inside

    Momma done raised me right as rain
    Never tried to cause nobody no pain
    Alter boy schoolboy choirboy too
    Nothin’ but truth I speak at you
    I’m filled with sweetness to the brim
    But there’s a devil inside & you can just blame him

    Falsehoods tearin’ down my good name
    Never my fault but I get the blame
    Cross my heart and hope to live
    I get more grief than I can give
    A bad boy you mistook me for
    It’s the devil inside and nothin’ more

    Fat cat’s full my cupboard’s bare
    If they got too much then they ought to share
    Help myself to what I find
    I’m sure those well-fed folks won’t mind
    You sing me your self-righteous song
    But it’s the devil inside that done you wrong

    Lawman says “You’ll come with me”
    It’s not my fault man, can’t you see
    My thoughts are pure, my motives clean
    But someone’s getting in between
    My actions might look awfully grim
    But it’s the devil inside blame it all on him

    Soon to Be Mine

    Getting that feeling
    That tells me I’m dealing
    With something appealing
    You’re soon to be mine

    There’s no concealing
    My senses are reeling
    My smile is revealing
    You’re soon to be mine

    It’s a lock - there’s no mistaking
    You’re in all the plans I’m making
    You’re the claim that I am staking
    I’ll be so happy soon

    Footloose and frantic
    A hopeless romantic
    You know from my antics
    You’re soon to be mine

    Shouting from towers
    Smelling the flowers
    Counting the hours
    Until you are mine

    It’s a lock - there’s no mistaking
    You’re in all the plans I’m making
    You’re the claim that I am staking
    I’ll be so happy soon

    You may not yet be aware
    Of all I’ve planed for you and me
    But soon enough you’ll see the light
    And understand we’re meant to be

    Logical thinking
    Has us interlinking
    Champagne glasses clinking
    You’re soon to be mine

    A lifetime together
    Birds of a feather
    Happily tethered
    You’re soon to be mine

    Getting that feeling
    That tells me I’m dealing
    With something appealing
    You’re soon to be mine

    There’s no concealing
    My senses are reeling
    My smile is revealing
    You’re soon to be mine

    It’s a lock - there’s no mistaking
    You’re in all the plans I’m making
    You’re the claim that I am staking
    I’ll be so happy soon

    Footloose and frantic
    A hopeless romantic
    You know from my antics
    You’re soon to be mine

    Shouting from towers
    Smelling the flowers
    Counting the hours
    Until you are mine

    It’s a lock - there’s no mistaking
    You’re in all the plans I’m making
    You’re the claim that I am staking
    I’ll be so happy soon

    You may not yet be aware
    Of all I’ve planed for you and me
    But soon enough you’ll see the light
    And understand we’re meant to be

    Logical thinking
    Has us interlinking
    Champagne glasses clinking
    You’re soon to be mine

    A lifetime together
    Birds of a feather
    Happily tethered
    You’re soon to be mine

    All Day Long (Hankish)

    All day long I put my hope in you
    All day long I put my hope in you
    You’re the one who draws me to the place I need to be
    May I be worth the hope you put in me

    All day long I place my faith in you
    All day long I place my faith in you
    You’re the one who makes our home a special place to be
    May I be worth the faith you put in me

    I’ll drive the road I need to follow
    I’ll walk the path that I should walk
    I’ll keep my eyes ahead and focus
    On this love that is sweet as a saffron crocus

    All day long I put my trust in you
    All day long I put my trust in you
    You’re the one who blows my boat across the raging sea
    May I be worth the trust you put in me

    I’ll drive the road I need to follow
    I’ll walk the path that I should walk
    I’ll keep my eyes ahead and focus
    On this love that is sweet as a saffron crocus

    All day long I give my love to you
    All day long I give my love to you
    You’re the one who gets my love and gives it back times three
    May I be worth the love you give to me

    ‘Cuz all day long you give your love to me
