Track Name: One Heart
Chorus:
One heart beating, x 2

Woke up one morning drenched in a sweat,
head pounding haven’t heard from him yet
There’s a pain so deep it kills my sleep
Once I was strong, now so weak

chorus
One heart beating
One heart bleeding


Where can I run, where can I go
The love I believed in taken a blow
If I ripped out my heart, and threw it in his face
Would he feel it? Know how it tastes

Chorus
One heart beating
One heart bleeding
One heart grieving
Instead of two

Bridge
What does it take, what does it take to melt those iron walls
you make?
Where can I go, Where can I go, I’m drifting away


Say your feeling flat, its just not there
As If love can run, go from here to there
Well that’s not the love I thought was true
You gotta be lying to me or to you
I want to scream, want to die
Haunted by each memory makes me cry and cry
Find me an escape a fast back door
There’s a heat I can’t take, cause it feels like a war

chorus

One heart beating
one heart bleeding
one heart grieving

Instead of two

One heart....
Track Name: I'd Give Away All My Love Songs
I'D GIVE AWAY ALL MY LOVE SONGS

I’d give away all my love songs
To have you back today
My pen may be on fire
To send my blues away
I’d sing so ever higher
If you can hear me say
Darlin’ my love never seems to tire
So come back to me today

BRIDGE
Every day that goes by I just miss you
And the night seems so long and so cold
I just long to be back beside you
Don’t leave this girl on hold

If I were a little blue bird
I’d fly so fast to you
Sing all my hurtin love songs
So you’d get each and every word
I know you turned your back on me
You decided we were threw
But I wish I knew how to show you
My love for you is true, true, true

BRIDGE
I know that we haven’t always spoken
And said all the things we needed to
My weary heart has been broken
Let me come back to you


Life is full of trials
With all its ups and down
I’d walk all the extra miles
Cause its you I know I’m bound
I’ve never been so crazy
Or thought I’d ever say
I’d give away all my love songs
Just to have you back today
Yes I’d give away all my love songs
just to have you back today.
Track Name: Raindrop Kisses
Raindrop Kisses

Chorus
Raindrop kisses x2

Raindrop kisses pouring down
Pecking my skin with a gentle pound
On my shoulders on my knees
Flutters my heart with such an ease

chorus

Raindrop kisses I like your sound
Touches my soul as I race around
You still my mind, you take my breath
I don’t care if I get wet

Na, nana na na na…

Raindrop kisses you’re my love
Sending me peace from high above
You tap each surface like a dancers wings
Puddles of songs, the lane way sings

Chorus

Raindrop kisses take me home
Tiny penetrations deep to my bone
Raindrop kisses you feel so good
I’d kiss you back if I could x3

Na, nana na, na na
Track Name: Something Sacred
Something Sacred

Something sacred has been lost
Something tender has its cost
Try to sever what is real
Like it isn’t a big deal


Penalty will be tried
All the nights I have cried
Opened up my heart to you
You just do what you do

Selfish good and selfish bad
wear it like it’s just some fad
What was once tried and true
Spit it out and grab the new

Loneliness is your curse
Seeking sweetness is your nurse
Never stopping to reflect
Just another train wreck

Bridge:
I thought we’d plan a new start
We’d be together for a long time
You went back on your own
Estranged in your zone


Something sacred has its cost
Something tender has been lost
Get it back if you can
Grow up and be a man

De-compartmentalize
Hide the truth from your eyes
Celebrate all your lies
Pretend you are wise.

Something sacred has been lost
Something tender has its cost
Track Name: I Don't Want to Know
I don't want to know the touch of your skin
I don't want to know how good you kiss
I don't want to know how tight you can hold me
I don't want to know

chorus
if love is just a moment of passion, forgotten as quick as a kiss
Spilling our hungry emotions
On the lovers road of hit and miss, I don't want to know


I don't want to know, what you like or what you don't
I don't want to know,
I don't want to know, its getting warmer
I don't want to know

chorus

Tired and wired of these animal desires
driving me away from my home
love lost child acting kinda wild
playing in a dangerous

instrumental

i don't want to know., don't get to close now
i don't want know. send me a post card
i don't want know your not even a good cause I don’t wanna know

chorus

i don't want to know, Don’t make any promises.....
i don't want to know, Say it like you mean it now
I don’t want know, I’m not falling for that one....
I don’t want to..... know
Track Name: A Man that Can Drive
I want a man to drive me in my car

I want a man to drive me all around

I want a man to drive me up and down

I want a man to drive


He can slide in to any tight spot

With such finesse it gets me all hot

He’ll go the distance on any tough route

Cause, he’s a man that can drive


He won’t stop when he can’t find his way

He just goes on and he knows how to stay

He’s not even afraid to pray

Cause he’s a man that can drive


I want a man who can pluck all my strings

He really knows how to make this girl sing

He keeps the beat going all through the night

Cause he’s a man that can drive

Instrumental break
(2 verses)
He won’t stop when he can’t find his way

He just goes on and he knows how to stay

He’s not even afraid to pray

Cause he’s a man that can drive


A Mazda, a mercedes, a smart car for two

Whatever the size he’ll know what to do

He shifts those gears so smooth through and through

Cause he’s a man that can drive


I want a man to rock me all night

Until we see the early morning light

Then take a parachute up to the stars

Cause he’s a man that can drive
Track Name: New Love
New Scents

New Touches

Am I ready for the rushes of love?


So far, so weary

I’m tired of all my theories of love.


I’m scared of the darkness

Stipped of all my comforts

So dry in the desert of my heart


Thirsty for some pleasure

To wrestles to find some

As my head spins with memories of lost love, lost love



New scents, new touches

Am I ready for the rushes of new love
Track Name: Cover-up Man
Chorus

Mr cover up man
You’re so unaware
Mr cover up man are you still there?
Mr cover up man from the hats that you wear
To the blank hollow feeling I got from your stare.

The cover up man brought me gifts and charms
He took me in with his strong open arms
Without a second thought I completely undressed
One haunting touch got me into this mess

Chorus

Bridge:
Well little sister its your turn
The coverup man will make you burn
He’ll play his game so self assured
It takes a while till you see how disturbed

Instrumental

I bet you don’t know who I’m talking about
I revealed myself you began to doubt
You never led on what you truly felt
Until the final hour when your cards were dealt

Mr Cover up Man do you know who you are?
Mr Cover up Man going from bar to bar
Mr Cover up Man your just living for the gig
Never want to look at the graves that you dig


Mr Coverupman, Mr Coverupman, Mr. Coverupman
Track Name: Oh Lord Don't Leave Me Alone
If I could have some wishes, this is where I’d start
for a man that’s so delicious and comes with a big warm heart

Chorus

Oh Lord don’t leave me alone
All I want is to bring back one good man home

He don’t need no good looks
That don’t last too long
But if he is a good cook
With that I can’t go wrong

Chorus

I think I’ll paint my lips red
I think I’ll wear high shoes
If he can’t see me that’s too bad,
He’s the one to lose
Chorus

If I were a little sparrow
I’d fly from tree to tree
Until I’d find that special bird
Who sings so sweet to me

Chorus

If I could have just one more wish, this is what I’d ask,
I’d want to find the kind of love I know that will last
Track Name: Nothing Lasts But Love
Nothing lasts, oh, oh, oh nothing lasts but love.

Nothing last, nothing last but love.


When love is strong enough love can feed you

When love is wrong enough love can grieve you

I Walk down the streets full of empty faces

Somebody show me the rock of ages

Chorus

Mr. Philosopher books are his kingdom
All the knowledge, none of the wisdom
All the kings horses all the kings men
Couldn’t put him back together again

Bridge


Everything just turns to dust

Is there something precious we can trust

I look all around and I look inside

for a deeper power we can find

Instrumental


Nothing lasts, oh, oh, oh nothing lasts but love.

Nothing last, nothing last but love


Just like a hero ready for flight

a speeding bullet, burnt by the light

All his bravado and best made plans

Watch how they vanish fast as quick sand



When love is strong enough love can feed you


When love is wrong enough love can grieve you

When love is strong enough love can feed you


When love is wrong enough love can grieve you

When love is strong enough love can feed you

When love is wrong enough love can grieve you


Nothing Last oh oh, Nothing Last, Nothing Last, Nothing last..
Track Name: New Moon
New moon
music and lyrics : Isabel Fryszberg

Arrangements: Steve Briggs, Don Kerr


Half moon hanging in the sky

Wondering where your other half lies

Half moon its you and me alone

Listening to the hum of the city's drone

Half moon your shine is not so bright,

Covered by the sheet of the night


Well I know two halves don't always make one,

Especially when neither is having fun

I know you’re just a full moon in disguise

Only pretending to be half your size


New moon your form is incomplete

I'm waiting for the moment when your two halves meet.

New moon you're not easy to see,

When you’re taking your time just to be
Track Name: City Girl
There’s a man who live in the golden hills carrying out the ways of the west.

Rides a gentle ranch horse, Sisco is his name, tending land he respects.

An urban girl, of shattered dreams could not resist the call to the west

ticket and suitcase she enters a world, feelin like some kind of guest

chrous:

city girl, 21st century, he the last cowboy.

Purple skies, and a streetcar, can she have it all


Standing there like a sundance kid, greets her with a smile

Hesitant, but wont turn back, as he asks her to stay a little while

In the pick up truck, they take off for a ride, down a long endless road.

Does not know how far they would go, or how far they would drive


chorus


As time unfolds they’ve fallen in love

thought she could just have fun

bags unpacked, its time for her to go,

to the world she knows as home
