Track Name: Fading Sun
Fading sun says shadows are a-comin’;
Fading sun says shadows are a-comin’;
We’ll have fun on the boardwalk tonight.

Plato said, “rhythm and harmony
Find inward places of the soul.”
Here we find that peacefulness.
Kick back. Relax. You’re in cruise control.

All along summer’s showing that
Longer days means shorter nights.
Look around, hear that playful laughter
Of the one who makes you feel alright.

Fading sun says shadows are a-comin’;
Fading sun says shadows are a-comin’;
We’ll have fun on the boardwalk tonight.

When the morning comes;
When the sun heats up;
When the day turns on
And we both get up,

We will find rhythm and harmony
In inward places of our soul.
In you I find that peacefulness.
And I know just the place where we can go.

Fading sun says shadows are a-comin’;
Fading sun says shadows are a-comin’;
We’ll have fun on the boardwalk tonight.

Hum-ma-hmm-ma-hmm-ma-hmm
Our song.
Track Name: Ligustrum
I know gladness. I know sorrow.
What will it bring me tomorrow?
No more sadness or regret;
None I can feel as yet.
I know hot and I know frigid.
There is loose and there is rigid.
In this world of Yin and Yang
Let the cycle start again.

A brand new day.
A day to play.
A day to stop and smell
The Sweet Ligustrum.
The morning air
Wafts through you hair.
You turn and take my hand
Whatever may come.

I know gladness. I know sorrow.
What will it bring me tomorrow?
No more sadness or regret;
None I can feel as yet.
I know hot and I know frigid.
There is loose and there is rigid.
In this world of Yin and Yang
Let the cycle start again.

The evening calls.
A breath for all
Who value modernist
Architecture.
You see the span,
Of private land,
And realize the scope
Of what your’e not sure.

This time of year I need some
Sweet scented Ligustrum.
This time of year I need some
Sweet scented Ligustrum.

I know gladness. I know sorrow.
What will it bring me tomorrow?
No more sadness or regret;
None I can feel as yet.
I know hot and I know frigid.
There is loose and there is rigid.
In this world of Yin and Yang
Let the cycle start again.

The azure blue meets white sand to
See where the seashore
Finds out who its seeking,
The fragrance now surrounding you
Has got to be a language only love speaks.

This time of year I need some
Sweet scented Ligustrum.
This time of year I need some
Sweet scented Ligustrum.
Track Name: Where Are We
Where are we,
Oh my love,
Lost in fantasy?
Where are we?
I can’t even
Find the ground
It seems as if
All around us
Moves when we do,
Turns and spins,
Matching every
Heartbeat that I
Hear within.

Hushed the splendid morning,
Warm the soothing breeze,
Golden rays of gladness
Tip the waves upon the sea.
Happiness beyond all measure.
Oh my love,
Where are we?
Where are we?

Where were we,
Oh my love.
Lost in fantasy?
Where were we?
All the past is
Cancelled now,
For you’re here
And know me.
Hit the reset.
Let it play,
Looping always.
This is where I
Want to stay.

Hushed the splendid morning,
Warm the soothing breeze,
Golden rays of gladness
Tip the waves upon the sea.
Happiness beyond all measure.
Oh my love,
Where are we?
Where are we?
Track Name: Are You Going to Stay
Are you going to stay
See spring turn into summer?
It was in May
That you told me a lover
Tells you the truth.
Tells you if your path
Leads to the rocks or
A smooth sailing future.

Are you taking your leave
When songbirds start their singing?
Now trees are green
And the promise they're bringing
Tells me I see
Something well beyond
Just a new day;
For there's so much that may be.
Are you go-ing to stay?

Let me tell you,
Let me persuade you
To stay, to stay, to stay.
Let me love you.
Let me enfold you
forever tonight.
Are you going to stay?

What I’m hoping to hear
Louder than summer thunder
Falls on my ear
And will fill me with wonder.
Tell me you’re mine.
Don’t you know I’m yours
For all time? Will you
Tell me you’ll stay?
Are you going to stay?
Track Name: Cool November
It doesn’t matter what the border,
North or South, East or west.
You know details of the order.
What you do you do Best.

Cool November,
we remember the barefoot sandy walks;
Me talking way to much;
Cool November.
Father Timber, let’s enjoy tonight.
Make the fire bright.

It really matters,
All the borders:
East or West,
South or North.
We break away
From the patterns
You and I
Must hold forth.

Cool November,
We remember
The barefoot sandy walks,
Me talking way to much;
Cool November,
Father Timber,
We will use tonight.
Make the fire bright.
Track Name: We're Never Growing Old
You’re never growing old.
I’m saying that’s a fact.
You’ll staying in my heart
As timeless as the stars
Coursing in their tracks.

I’m never growing old
As long as you can say
That you are mine and I
Can kiss your lips, my eyes can see
Your glowing gaze.

When the dance swirls onto the floor;
When the band plays the sweet romance;
When the fire burns low and we soar to heaven
Hold on to me fast.
You’re never growing old.

We’ll stay forever young.
I’ll buy a golden ring.
You wear it and I promise
That our lives together
Stay eternal spring.

Now there may come a time
The world will finally end,
But, darling, there’s no way
That we will be distracted.
We will just ascend.

When the dance swirls onto the floor;
When the band plays the sweet romance;
When the fire burns low and we soar to heaven
Hold on to me fast.
You’re never growing old.
