Track Name: Rio San Juan [Club Mix]

Drivin’ on 40, on old Route 66
Destiny searching, just hit or miss
And my friend Nate King Cole had it right
He said, “just get your kicks”
While we drove, through the night

Friends of mine, by my side
And I see the Rio San Juan

Foothills shine in the desert night
And a million stars, always a awesome, pleasant sight
And the mesa I see (And I think)
Hippie’s delight
Over there, Monument Valley; Beauty all around, always astounds

In a little hurry, now she’s gone from my sight
…I see her, the Rio San Juan
Track Name: When The Bell Rings

There is no sign of Humankind
I seem to be someplace, Home is nowhere
Then the bus picks up Johnny
And takes him to the school, school yard haven
When the Bell Rings…

I’m six years old and I can’t believe it
Teacher Angel, she sings knowledge to me
I got my lunch, and a pencil too
A little dodge ball, time to go
When the Bell Rings…

She goes to school in Austin town
Learns the rules, suffer fools
Deans List, the honor roll
Her ticket wrote, but she knows – Oh, no no
When the Bell Rings…

Teach your heart, and show the soul
Little Johnny, he’s first to know
Kid’s all think she’s tough but posed
Nothing’s gonna stop the learnin’
When the Bell Rings…

If I could just stay here…
Track Name: Willy and Molly
Track Name: Lightning In My Heart

Can you see me? Don’t deceive me
Please drop those walls between us
I find you a little groovy…

Only Memories, come between us
Brings us closer to love’s trust
Enter storm clouds of Love..

You bring Lightning to My Heart
I’ll never leave you
Since you bring Lightning to My Heart
Life has a new start

You make Lightning in My Heart

Well, if sweet pain is by design
Or because the stars align
Power of Love brings Lightning to My Heart
Life has a new start

Our love holds, through the Chaos
As the globe burns around us
You find I’m your favorite crazy

So you see me, ever yearning
To create the perfect love
Heart dance of rock n roll

So we’re love birds, soaring skyward
Looking for a safe nest and rest
River flows to our soul

You make Lightning in My Heart
Track Name: Moonrise
