Track Name: Flight
A man by day, a boy at night
He tries to keep his dreams alive
But reality keeps pushing in
Fight and push and pull away
Fight to keep that monster at bay

He gets up at 6:15
Showers, shaves, and starts to preen
Wants to look the corporate man
But when his brain starts to take a rest
He flies to places only he knows best

A famous musician or a fireman
A pilot or whatever he can

Are you ready?
Yes, I’m ready.

A family guy when he’s home at night
Loves his wife, and he feels alright
But in his heart he’s taking off in flight
And while in bed he savors the dreams
That make reality more than it seems

He wishes he were a captain of industry
A mover and a shaker is his destiny

Are you ready?
Yes, I’m ready.

(Spoken)
Are you ready?
Yes, I'm ready.
Track Name: What Would You Do?
What should I do?
All of my world's gone crazy
Could it be you?
Maybe my sanity's hazy

Walking around
Head's way up in the sky now
I'm not feeling down
People are asking me why now

(Bridge)
Couldn't stop smiling right from the start
And now I can't get you out of my heart

(Chorus)
What should I do? / I can't stop what's happening
I haven't a clue / My head's spinning fast
How did you do / This to my heart girl?
Now that you're with me / I just couldn't go
I love you girl / Don't you know?

Where should I go?
I just can't live without you
Wouldn't you know?
I don't want to live without you

(Repeat bridge)
(Repeat chorus)
(Guitar solo)

Now that you're mine
Everything else is new
I think I'm fine
Tell me now, what would you do?

What would you do?
What would you do?
Track Name: You Said
You said, “why do fish like to swim?”
And I said, “ ‘cause they don’t know how to fly.”
And you said, “why do birds like to fly?”
And I said, “so they can touch the sky.”

You said, “will I ever learn to fly?”
‘Cause I know that I wanna touch the sky.
I’ll never come on down to the ground.
No, no, I’m never coming down.”

Anything’s possible yeah
Anything that you want to do
It is a dream that you can dream
If that’s the way it’s meant to be
Then that’s the way it’s meant to be

I said, “what are you gonna do?
You know that it’s all up to you.
Anything that you dream of you can be.
No limits, not the earth, the sky, the sea.”

Anything’s possible yeah
Anything that you want to be
It’s your life dream all you can dream
If that’s the way it’s meant to be
Then that’s the way it’s meant to be

You said, “that’s how it’s meant to be.”
And I said, “if that is your dream.”
You said, “I will reach the sky.”
“You just have to try.”
Track Name: When She's Gone
She walks down the hall into my room
Leaving behind a trail of her perfume
When she is with me I never fear
‘Cause nothing can shake me when she is near

(But) when she’s gone I’m alone again
Walking around this place
When she comes back I’m on again
Cause she is my saving grace
Oh yes she is
And her heart is mine

She walks in the bar and the room lights up
Looking finer than a beer in a Dixie cup
Better than whiskey and finer than wine
I’m one lucky guy to know she’s mine

(But) when she’s gone I’m alone again
Walking around I’m lost
When she comes back I’m on again
‘Cause no matter what the cost
I’m gonna try
To keep her mine

(But) when she’s gone I’m alone again
Walking around this place
When she comes back I’m on again
Cause she is my saving grace
(But) when she’s gone I’m on my own again
Walking around I’m lost
When she comes back I’m on again
‘Cause no matter what the cost
I’m gonna try
Track Name: You Don't Have to be Hot to Like Country
I was walking on down the street / Happy as I could be
When a beautiful dark skinned blonde / Came on over to me
She was listening to rock and roll / As she gave me a smile
I looked her once right in the eye / And said without any guile

You don't have to be hot to like country / But it helps with the boys
Cause when we see a good looking girl / We like to make a lot of noise
You don't have to be hot to like country / Cause it's loved round the world
But you gotta like country / To be my girl

At the end of a long, hot day / I stopped to get me some eats
When a pretty, long haired brunette / Came on over to me
She heard me singing all to myself / Then asked me who it was
"Lemme tell you 'bout Johnny Cash / The best that ever was"

You don't have to be hot to like country / Though it can open doors
Cause when we see a nice southern girl / It's not easy to ignore
Though you don't have to be hot to like country / Yet it helps if you are
Cause if you're hot and you like country / You're like a music star

(Spoken) Playing a guitar

You don't have to be hot to like country / But it helps with the boys
Cause when we see a good looking girl / We like to make a lot of noise
No you don't have to be hot to like country / I don't want to offend
But if you don't like Hank or Merle / Then you can't be my friend
No it doesn't matter what kind of girl / 'Cause this is the end
Track Name: Bookends
Time it was
And what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence
A time of confidences

Long ago it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They're all that's left you
