Track Name: Welcome Home, Philadelphia
When I think back to home, I think of what I could see outside my window
How I’d hear voices talk below, see commuters driving home
At night I’d see women change clothes; I’d see drunks swap their bottles
I’d see police out on patrol…
It’s my home… Have a little, talk a little, you won’t be alone
Just welcome home… Life in, Philadelphia
It’s all I know… And I’m welcome home.


When I think back to home, I think of all the places I could go
Spend the summer down the shore, drive back to Philly for the fall
Take a train down to the stadium, at night drive over to Manayunk
Stay out until you see the sun…
Just like home… Have a little, talk a little, you won’t be alone
Just welcome home… Life in, Philadelphia
It’s all I know… And I’m welcome home.
Track Name: Summer Girl
The rain falls down into the trees, which block the drops with their, their leaves...
The water is needed to a degree; the sun will jump up when it pleases....
And as it does, we’ll make do with our time, sleep in the dark and wake up when it shines...
Sit ourselves down and sip some wine, accept what it’s telling us, accept these signs...
Accept these signs,...
All in due time,...
Except these signs

The crickets chirp and the shore’s so far,...
I got summer but it’s cool in the dark...
Yet, I can see the ocean, I see it in you…
The summer’s not gone, it’s peaking through…
My summer girl


The summer moon and the fire flies, they slide and dance all around the sky...
They give me tools, give me the sight, to see all the time that’s in our eyes...
But, clocks get lost in this haze, we ramble back on to those days...
When we were younger and we were not fazed, by all the time and how life, it has changed..
In so many ways,...
How life changed…
Change, change…

The crickets chirp and the shore’s so far,...
I got summer but it’s cool in the dark...
Yet, I can see the ocean, I see it in you…
The summer’s not gone, it’s peaking through…
My summer girl

My summer, my summer, my summer girl
My summer, my summer girl
My summer, my summer girl....
Track Name: Got Hope
They can’t take this away, away from me
It’s something I hid, Oh… I buried
Yeh, it’s lying at home, guarded on my inside
No one can steal what’s inside my mind…

I got hope. Inside.

Society likes to break things, including hope
They look for fear, they’ll try to expose it
But, I can always reach down, find my hope inside
Because they can’t destroy what they can’t divide…
Hope.

I got hope. Inside.

Frankl said, “what’s to give light, must endure burning.”
I say, “just like the earth, we can’t change without turning”
Yeh, minutes turn to days, got to start with me, with right now
I hope it adds things up past my human heartbeat countdown…
Hope.
I got hope. Inside.

They can’t take this away, away from me
It’s something I hid, Oh… I buried
Yeh, it’s lying at home, guarded on my inside
No one can steal what’s inside my mind…
Track Name: Drunk Teleporters
A dark haired man sits on a stool in a bar and says, “give me another round”
Jack says, “Jim, you don’t look so good”. Jim says, “give me another round”
Jack - “What happened to you yesterday?”
Jim – “Man, I woke up and everything changed, just give me another round.
I mean it all happened so fast, I just want to wake up and go back. And get another round”
Well have another round…
“But, I can’t go back now”
And the liquid hits his lips, as the ice hits his brain
Then he’s back, back and it’s all the same
Despite this second chance, he doesn’t change..
He’s back at the bar again…
Teleporting
A tall blone sits at a hotel bar with an empty glass and says “give me another round”
Tears ruined her makeup, she doesn’t care, she sneers “give me another round”
She takes a look at her watch, it’s bruised and battered like her touch
“Can I please get another round?”
I could have made him reconsider, I know that I could do better if I could just get another round”
Well have another round…
“But, I can’t go back now”
And the liquid hits her lips, as the ice hits her brain
Then she’s back, back and it’s all the same
Despite this second chance, she doesn’t change..
She’s back at the bar again…
Teleporting
(have another round)
Teleporting…
Track Name: In the Beginning
These nights pass by, with the wink of an eye... then we see, the sun rise again.
These lights go out, they do all around town... tomorrow they will shine, shine again.

So, let's just rest for now. Let's just slow ourselves down. There's plenty of time, around the bend. Around the bend, it's just the beginning.

We can close our eyes, and dream of the skies, we will watch... the world turn again.
We can dream our dreams, let our minds stitch the seams, tomorrow we will laugh, laugh again.

So let's just rest for now, let's just slow ourselves down. We know this is not the end. No, not the end... Just the beginning.

Pull the covers up. Place our trust above. We will... fall asleep. Fall asleep, in the beginning
Track Name: Snooze Button
When I wake up, in the morning, I reach for my eyes, and I find sight in my mind.
When I sleep, in the night, I wait for answers, and I find them, inside.
But, as I age, the more I understand the more.. I'm lost.
And, in my youth, the less I knew the less the cost.

So Please Pat, slow down, you’re moving too fast
No, please, slap (say it), turn around, this won’t last
This day, no it, won’t last
I got to slow down
Just say that it won’t last
Reach up and reset the alarm now

So we walk, in the evening, we reach for each other, and we find ourselves.
And in one another, this feeling, propels us to drift on with what we are dealt
But I wake up, there's no answer, and I search but I'm alone .
when I sleep, there’s the answer, but in the morning they’re all gone.

So Please Pat, slow down, you’re moving too fast
No, please, slap, turn around, this won’t last
This day, no it, won’t last
I got to slow down
Just say that it won’t last
Reach up, reset the alarm now
Track Name: Pineapple Entrance
Two more days, five more days, I have no clue
But, someday soon, I’m going to get to meet you
You’re stuck inside, it’s always night, but here comes a sun
And when you come, spring will sprung, you’ll be welcome

So, welcome, welcome, welcome… welcome
You’re welcome (You’re at the door)
So welcome (There’s so much more)
You’re welcome (Just step forward)
Welcome

I’ll hold you close, I’ll kiss your nose, it’ll be heaven
And with your Mom, we’ll greet our love with arms open
And on a step, a pineapple sits to greet the sun
And when you come, you’ll bring our love, you’ll be welcome

So, welcome, welcome, welcome… welcome
You’re welcome (You’re at the door)
So welcome (There’s so much more)
You’re welcome (Just step forward)
Welcome

Two more days, five more days, I have no clue
But, someday soon, I’m going to get to meet you
Track Name: A Letter for a Daughter
Now that you’re here, I can think about tomorrow
I see my life’s reflection in your eyes, but I don’t know where it will take you
All I know is how much I care, and I wish I could say I’d always be here
But, life goes fast, got to hang on to what lasts…
My memory of you is crystal clear.

From the first seconds, you’ve been engrained in my mind, my mind
Your eyes gazed at me like light cast from the sky
You touched my life through my eyes
And when your little hand wrapped around my finger
It was the other way around, I was enamored…
I was a Father…
And this is a letter for a daughter…
My daughter.

And with all that’s changed, I feel a sense of peace inside
It’s evident as we breathe in and out, as I hold you in my arms tonight
But, I know that this stage is fleeting and one day you’ll be out on your own
Just know that there’s a place for you here, my arms will always be open.

From the first seconds, you’ve been engrained in my mind, my mind
Your eyes gazed at me like light cast from the sky
You touched my life through my eyes
And when your little hand wrapped around my finger
It was the other way around, I was enamored…
I was a Father…
And this is a letter for a daughter…
My daughter.
Track Name: No Clouds Above
Buzzed, grabs some cash and shouts to a bartender, "give me one, give me two"
He turns, and his friends, hand him another one, tonight one just won't do
Shifts and shuffles off towards his right, she sits down right on cue
Scared but he decides to approach her, "Hi, how are you?"

And I said it, and I meant it, even then
And I said it, and I meant it, everything
Cause this is how it was, I'm sure
This is real love, blurred
There's no clouds above, I'm sure
There's no clouds above, I'm cured.

Sober, grabs a chair and sits down with her, the pitchers drying up
He turns and his friends drop off another one, a pitcher that won't be touched
Shifts and shuffles off for his phone, she says the numbers , one by one
He takes his phone and enters her name,.. the curtains they go up.

And I said it, and I meant it, even then
And I said it, and I meant it, everything
Cause this is how it was, I'm sure
This is real love, blurred
There's no clouds above, I'm sure
There's no clouds above, I'm cured.

Buzzed, grabs some cash and shouts to a bartender..
Buzzed, grabs some cash and shouts to a bartender...
Buzzed, grabs some cash... Buzzed, grabs some cash,
Buzzed, grabs some cash... and puts it back in his pocket.
Track Name: Confidence in a Compass
I can’t tell you where I was yesterday, I can’t tell you where I am going
I can look back, I can open up, I can sway
I can turn around, I can stand it up and do it all today

But, back off if the tracks off, don’t be afraid
I’ve learned, I’ve turned, this is the right way
It’s the right way to go… I’m pushing my soul right past…
Bettin’ on a compass.

I can tell you when I am sorry, you can tell me when I get lost in me
I can look back, I can see it all, I change
It’s hard to look out when so many look in today

But, back off if the tracks off, don’t be afraid
I’ve learned, I’ve turned, this is the right way
It’s the right way to go… I’m pushing my soul right past…
Bettin’ on a compass.
Confidence… in a compass. Confidence in my compass.
Track Name: The Lifeguard
A dark fin rises in life’s ocean. Anxiety forms along the shore
A distant sign floating in the open You’re unaware of what swims below

What swims below
It swims below.

When it finally comes in sight, another heart beats fast for life
A warning through the quiet someone willing to fight it

Pushing through
A life to rescue.

The beast rises towards its prey you feel the warmth in the panic
A open path closes in the waves, there’s a tint of red in the splashes

It swims below
It swims below.

Then the lifeguard comes into sight, another heart beats fast for life
A swim against the tide, someone willing to fight it

Pushing through
Your life’s in rescue.

You’re brought to shore
Track Name: Ebb n Flow
The translucence of a rain drop, the opaque feeling when it hits your eye
How a life can look up for hope and really believe hope floats in the sky
But is the source actually deep down, in the midst of our hearts, all the way inside?
Is that where our hope lives? Does it flow to our brain, and fuel the burn of our life?

cause when it flows (it knows where to go) with no eyes

when it flows (it floods right through) ebb and do not rise

until we flow, it just goes...

So many reasons to look up, politicians, bureaucrats, governments and lies
So many reasons to lose hope, but somehow we find this comfort in the sky
Despite the water that flows through us and the full moon that glows at night
we lay down to sleep, unlike the tides, we do not rise

until we flow (we know where to go) with no eyes

until we flow (floods right through) ebb and do not rise

until we flow, Ebb and flow...

there's and ebb n flow to our life

Ebb and flow... there's an ebb n flow to our life

we ebb and flow...

...yes we do.
Track Name: Jack's Song
If we are what we eat, then we are what we are.
There's so much in our minds. There's so much in the dark.
But, the sun will come back. It will always rise.
We've got nothing to lose, if we open up sometimes.

Cause there's a light on. There's a right side, wrong. We've got our lights on. Just open up our souls.
Cause it's all, it's all calm. The worries are, the worries are all gone.
It's all, it's all calm. The worries are, the worries are all gone.

The waves go in and out. Feet can get stuck in the sand.
Learn a lesson from the tide and don't try to fight the current.
Just take a step up. And with each passing wave,
learn to dance with love, and know that your life is safe.

Cause there's a light on. There's a right side, wrong. We've got our lights on. Just open up our souls.
Cause it's all, it's all calm. The worries are, the worries are all gone.
It's all, it's all calm. The worries are, the worries are all gone.

Welcome home. It's been so long. Welcome home.
Welcome home. It's been so long. Welcome home.

If I go to heaven, I want to hear Jack's song.
If I go to heaven, I want to hear Jack's song.
If I go to heaven, I want to hear this song.
