Track Name: Find Something Beautiful
HIgh above the heavens an moonlight
Suspended in tar
Growing safe in a blanket
Sewn up with stars

You are someone's miracle
Aching to be
You could have gone anywhere
You came to me

You Shine on
Find Something Beautiful in everyone
you shine on in your own way

Some are raised by the lion
Some by the wolf
Should you ride in a carriage
or pull by the hoof

You Shine on
Find Something Beautiful in everyone
you shine on in your own way

To learn to live you have to love
To learn to love you have to give
From you I can understand

From a crack in the window
A door ajar
Guided by the sound of
An out of tune guitar
You step into the spotlight
and looked up at me
I cut your life line
Set you free

You Shine on
Find Something Beautiful in everyone
you shine on in your own way

You Shine on
Find Something Beautiful in everyone
you shine on in your own way
Track Name: Suddenly I Do
Suddenly I Do

Rise and shine Ms. Turpentine
Here's a little peace of mind
You can't savor a valentine
If you find it's a waste of time

You're enshrined all the time
To me you only shine
I still Cherish Solitude
But every time I get close to you
I sing a different tune

I use to say I had my doubts
when we use to scream it out
I'm not sure what it's all about
maybe you're just down and out

I awoke to a beautiful change
I rubbed my eyes you looked the same
I wander through your solitude
every time I get close to you I change my attitude

Suddenly I do
Want you in the morning
Suddenly I do
need you in the evening too
Suddenly I do
want every moment with you


Rise and shine Ms. Turpentine
Here's a little peace of mind
Most people I still find
do nothing but waste the time

If you want an alibi
how I can change my mind
I still cherish solitude
but every time I get close to you
I sing a different tune

Suddenly I do
Want you in the morning
Suddenly I do
need you in the evening too
Suddenly I do
want every moment with you

Here's a little peace of mind



Suddenly I do
Want you in the morning
Suddenly I do
need you in the evening too
Suddenly I do
want every moment with you
Track Name: Tomorrow's Junk
Tomorrow's Junk

The clock strikes 6
but the hands stick a little
and I'm always late (late again)

You say, 'today is the day for change
A new watch awaits'.
You trust the hands of time
I'm in the arms of fate.


Like a fool
I've traded in the old for the new
like a fool
I made my final stand
out on the street
with an old phonograph, a black and white screen and a used paperback
I know if I stayed
I'd end up here one day
sharing the curb with a worn out trunk

Tomorrow's Junk


You've become possessed
by your possessions
and you grow tired

The empty hole
in your soul grows wider
What have you acquired?
scarcely more than kindling for the fire

Like a fool
I've traded in the old for the new
like a fool
I made my final stand
out on the street
with an old phonograph, a black and white screen and a used paperback
I know if I stayed
I'd end up here one day
sharing the curb with a worn out trunk

Tomorrow's Junk


Like a fool
I've traded in the old for the new
like a fool
I made my final stand
out on the street
with an old phonograph, a black and white screen and a used paperback
I know if I stayed
I'd end up here one day

Like a radio that still longs to play
A dog eared book with the underlined phrase
sharing the curb with a worn out trunk

Tomorrow's Junk
