Track Name: Paper
All day I dream of love..
So sweet upon my toungue like lemonade
And I'm reminded now of..
the magical, miraculous powers of Paper.
With the right words, Paper holds so much weight.
Next time you find yourself wishing you were someone else,
Perhaps, instead,
you should wish you were made of..
Paper.
Track Name: Salt of the Earth
Verse 1:
Salt of the Earth don't complain
Those who know your worth mean to gain
You heal all their wounds and then you ease the pain
to challenge One you would be wise to refrain

Chorus
..and you're my kinda people yeah
How you handle the pressure ooh yeah
La La La La La La La La la la
La La La La La La La La la la

Verse 2:
Salt of the Earth never play
Those who know your worth soon will run to pay
Iridescent thoughts vibrate the light of day
One billion in thanks can't begin to repay

Chorus

Bridge:
Hey Hey
oooh yeah
Hey Hey
oooh yeah yeah
cont'

Verse 3:
Way deep down you already know it's true
Agates and rubies laid out just for you oh yeah
If I didn't say, I would be remiss
You were made for such a time as this.

Chorus:
And you're my kinda people..
How you handle the pressure.. oooh yeah

Track Name: Shakedown
This is a holdup
Hands over your shoulders
Rewind your mind and read the signs
I'm afraid it's too late
Though I give you lots of love
More than enough
You found out I save for a rainy day yeah

I hope you'd understand if dealt the same hand,
I check up on it now and then
when you make me mad just to make me feel better yeah
All roads led to wrong, I quit holding on
to the last of my stash then i found out
you took all my love and gone,
Now I gotsta' pull a

Shakedown
Shakedown
Get on the ground
Somebody goin' down and it aint gonna be me
Shakedown
this is a Shakedown
Get on the ground
Somebody going but it aint gonna be me

This is a stickup
Need to zip your lip up
You're the one that stole from me
that which was rightfully mine

I wanna call you no good,
Knowing well and good,
I held back some love of mine.
I'm no exception to the rule, I might act a' fool
a little bit crazed,
players interchange but the game remains the same
That's when I let down my guard, loved you real and hard
showed my true hand, now all alone in the name of love I stand..
Now I gotsta pull a

Shakedown
Shakedown
Get on the ground
Somebody goin' down and it aint gonna be me
Shakedown
this is a Shakedown
Get on the ground
Somebody going but it aint gonna be me

Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Track Name: Time Takes a Toll..
Time takes a toll bores a hole in the palm of the hand that doth grasp
ooh ooh ooh
Time takes a toll, wears a hole in the palm of the hand that does grasp
ooh ooh ooh yeah
Time takes a toll, wears a hole in the palm of the hand that doth grasp
oooh ooh oh ohh
So I stare out at the change of the light, wondering when this feeling will pass..
ooooh Time yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: The Hippie Song
I'm moving forward, inching towards the
moving forward
I'm inching towards the, moving forward
moving forward

Chorus
Well you remember my name
I, may not be the same
Well you remember my name
I, may not be the same

As I look up at the sky
Hitchhike with the fireflies
I ask, "whatever happened to the brighter days?"
"when road signs never read wrong way?"

Chorus
Well you remember my name
I, may not be the same
Well you remember my name
I, may not be the same

Chorus
Track Name: City Life
Want you to know just how much fun I had with you yeah
I wanna see you again
Downtown downtime moments are few but
if you want to you, can count me in
City Life

Oooh livin, in the city
never dressed for weather or the people you'll meet
Middle of the day, bills to pay
in a love haze lay you and me
oh yes
City Life

Broke way from the work day playing hooky with you yeah
Feels like I'm dreaming again
Snowflakes, shadows fall on me and you through
a glare of blue on the
wall
yeah
City Life

Oooh livin, in the city
never dressed for weather or the people you'll meet
Middle of the day, bills to pay
in a love haze lay you and me
oh yes
City Life

Bridge:
My how time flies with you
such a good time with you
Never wanna say goodbye to you

Out upon the city streets
Next time you step out on the city streets
Out upon the city streets
Next time you step out on the city streets,
I know you'll be thinkin' bout me
Out upon the city streets
I know you'll be thinkin' bout me
ooooh oooh oooh City Life
oooh oooh City Life
ooooh oooh oooh City Life
oooh oooh City Life
ooooh oooh oooh oooh City Life
