Track Name: Boogieland
Think I know the way to go
I need a place to start
'Cause I've made music and I've made love and music won't break your heart

Boogieland
I'm goin' to Boogieland
Boogieland
I'm goin' down to Boogieland

Now I'm on the road again
An upright black and white ride
88 straight down 66
Everybody jump inside
We're goin' to

Boogieland
Boogieland
Boogieland
Got to get to Boogieland

Now if I ever get there I'm gonna climb right back up on the ball
For the never-ending neon nights I'd fly or drive or run or walk or crawl on back to

Boogieland
I'm goin' to Boogieland
I'm goin' down to Boogieland
Got to get to Boogieland...
Track Name: Crossroad
Standin' at the crossroad lookin' left and right
That way's a struggle
This way there's going to be a fight
Lookin' over my shoulder
I've still got debts to pay
But I got to move forward
I don't want to go back that way

Crossroad
Crossroad
Crossroad

Standin' at the crossroad
Comin' back from the time that was
But I got to take the first step 'cause it's six o' one, half a dozen of the other
Fifty-fifty chance
The difference is the same
I choose alone and no one is to blame

Standin' at the crossroad
Got my map clutched tight in my hand
It tells me all I need to know to make it to the promised land
But I’ve got to be mobile though it may seem sad somehow when it's round and down to you and me when I'm the one who counts right now

Crossroad
Crossroad
Crossroad
Standin' at the crossroad
At the crossroad
Crossroad
Can't turn back

(Dave Panting)
Track Name: The Near Dearly Departed
FOR GARY ROBBINS

In a world of changes we live and so the tide will turn and the cold wind blow
Friends and lovers that we've come to know so swiftly have departed
But I've lived to learn that this much is true:
The days we have are a precious few and we all become the things we do
I will not be downhearted

Changes come and change has come again with the rising sun and the passing of a friend

Through the wiles of nature and the hand of fate we finish what we started
You take your chances and you leave behind the near dearly departed

World of wonders on the silver screen on a starry night in a childhood dream
No use dwelling on what might have been or otherwise pretending
Claiming as a victim of circumstance on a wayward trek in a loner's trance
You can't give living a second glance waiting for the ending

Changes come and change has come again
with the rising sun and the passing of a friend

We live the mystery right to the end to see if we've been outsmarted
Or if hope lies waiting on the other side for the near dearly departed
The near dearly departed

(Geoff Panting)
Track Name: You Will Always Have My Love
You will always have my love
You will always have my love

You have my constant dedication
My feelings for you, you may not be aware of
You have been my inspiration and you will always have my love

We may face indecision
Situations that we have no control of
Let division come between us but you will always have my love

I am an ember in the ashes of your fire of hope
Inside darkness, inside doubt
And when you're sinking underneath a tide of tears remember:
I will not burn out

You will always have my love
You will always have my love
You will always have my love

Everlasting adoration
This is something that you can be certain of
Just as surely as the sunrise in the mornin' girl
You will always have my love
Just as surely as the sunrise in the mornin' girl
You will always have my love
You will always have my love
You will always have my love

(Dave Panting)
Track Name: Make It On Time
get real nervous on the roundabout
One way in and no way out
I've gotta make it on time (make it on time)
Careful steppin' off of that merry-go-round
First step's a doosey, it's a long way down
I've gotta make it on time (make it on time)

I know one word, the word is yes
That should keep me safe I guess
I've got to make it on time (make it on time)

I get real nervous when there are no walls
I've got to make it on time (make it on time)
Live in fear of that big free fall
I've gotta make it on time (make it on time)

A change of scene, I wish I could
Make it on time, make it on time
I smell the evil in the neighbourhood
I've gotta make it on time

Dog eat dog, push come to shove
No time for thinkin’, much less for love
I've gotta make it on time (make it on time)
Make it on time …

(Geoff Panting)
Track Name: Some People
Some people think they've got time to kill
Some people think they've got it goin'
Some people think they've got a way with the will
Some people got a line worth towin'
Beating all the raps, avoiding all the traps
Some people got that magic potion
They've got the way to be, they're making history
Some people get that big promotion

Read that headline, pass that test
Let's bring on our special guest
In confusion feelin' vexed
Learn the password, what comes next?
Uptown
Downtown
Hurry up!
Slow down!
Think real quick and win that showdown
You've been beaten to the punch
Arevederchi
Let's do lunch
Well,
Some people
Some people

Some people think they've got it all sewn up
Some people have no cause to doubt it
Some people claim to know the ways of love
Some people learn to live without it

Leave me be
Don't say no to me
I'll be free momentarily

Livin' on the need to know
Up above and down below
Forward!
Backward!
Forward!
Halt!
Take it with a grain of salt
Ways and means and plans and schemes
Livin' out there
Land of dreams
Grown accustomed to your station
Learn to live on information
Some people
Some people

Some people say it's gettin' better all the time
Some people really want to go there
Some people think there's nothin' better on your mind
Some people think you're goin' nowhere, so there!
Some people
Some people

(Geoff Panting)
Track Name: Where Would I Be
All I want to do is talk to you and get a line of reference on the state of our affair
Wake up to an empty room
The silence draws me in, and plays with my head
Paint a portrait of a poor boy in a gilded palace of loneliness
You get a pretty fair picture of your lover man and woman he's in an awful mess

Where would I be without your lovin' arms around to hold me close
Nothing'll take the place of time with you when you're so far away
Where would I be without your laughing eyes a - lookin' back at me
Nothing'll take the place of how I feel when you come back to stay

I know that you get the same feeling when all you really need's a little company
Telephones and a letter make you feel better but nothing like the touch of you on me

All I want to do is talk to you and get a line of reference on the state of our affair
Telephones and a letter make you feel a little better but nothing like the touch of your hair

Where would I be without your lovin' arms around to hold me close
Nothing'll take the place of time with you when you're so far away
Where would I be without your laughing eyes a - lookin' back at me
Nothing'll take the place of how I feel when you come back to stay

Where would I be without your lovin' arms around to hold me close
Nothing'll take the place of time with you when you're so far away
Where would I be without your laughing eyes a - lookin' back at me
Nothing'll take the place of how I feel when you come back to stay

(Brian Bourne)
Track Name: Don't Wait On Me
Don't wait on me
Look around and what do you see?
You see me gone to set you free
Don't wait on me

I got the message you tried not to send
Our time together is about to end
I think you know what we're both thinkin' of
It's too hard livin' in the shadow of love

Don't wait on me
Look around and what do you see?
You see me gone to set you free
Don't wait on me

Sunset on a broken heart
Your crystal fountain comes crackin' apart
Sendin' white water crashin' down your mountainside
Sunrise burnin' on the turnin' tide

Don't wait on me
Look around and what do you see?
You see me gone to set you free
Don't…
Don't…
Don't wait on me
Look around and what do you see?
You see me gone to set you free
Don't wait on me

(Dave Panting)
Track Name: Rockaway
Rockaway, rockaway
Rockaway, rockaway ...

Sailing on the sea of space and time to take today
Waves of dancing dreams it seems you're drifting back my way
My heart was like a lonesome drummer beating endlessly
Your love was a lighthouse beacon in my memory

Rockaway, rockaway
Rockaway, rockaway...

Thunder faded behind the shades as the twilight came on strong
Baby laid me in her cradle, rocked me all night long
Singing songs in the dark 'til dawn we made our way home free
Scattering ashes upon the water
Rock away with me
Oh rock away with me

Rockaway, rockaway
Rockaway, rockaway..

(Dave Panting)
Track Name: Two Islands
wo islands a rainbow spans
Everyone else is elsewhere
Tomorrow's tomorrow and we don't care
We're foregone in love
Too late to worry about the price
Is the pleasure worth the pain?
You don't have to ask me twice

There's an omen to tell me it's been worthwhile as the boat pulls away from the quay
Two islands a rainbow spans
Storm breaking over the sea
We're foregone in love
Too late to worry about the price
Is the pleasure worth the pain?
You don't have to ask me twice

There's an omen to tell me it's been worthwhile
As the boat pulls away from the quay
Two islands a rainbow spans
Storm breaking over the sea
Too late to worry about the price
Is the pleasure worth the pain?
You don't have to ask me twice
Is the pleasure worth the pain?
You don't have to ask me twice

(Dave Panting)
Track Name: The Deep Blue
A warning sign
A dotted line
A line that's been wearing so thin
And the heat is on and the feeling's gone and there's hard weather coming in

But it's all right with me if that's all right with you
We let it slip away little by little 'til there's nothing else left to do

Isn't life a tricky piece of timing?
You speak too soon, you're born too late
What can you do when you're left free falling with no recourse but tempting fate?

But it's all right with me if that's all right with you
We live and die between the earth and sky
The devil and the deep blue
Yeah the devil and the deep blue

The sun is drownin' in an endless ocean
Darkness stealing like the hands of time
The moon is rising and there's creatures calling from way out yonder on the borderline

Well it's a hard go ‘round when the chips are down and options are a precious few
We live and die between the earth and sky
The devil and the deep blue
Yeah the devil and the deep blue

It's all right with me, if that's all right with you
We live and die between the earth and sky
The devil and the deep blue
Yeah the devil and the deep blue

It's all right with me, if that's all right with you
We live and die between the earth and sky
The devil and the deep blue
Yeah the devil and the deep blue
