The Air Burns Again Tonight

Kinda crazy this way I see you   
Why I’m starin’ I just can’t explain
Maybe I thought we’d never meet again
You’re like an ocean breeze dancin’ on the waves
I know they say that lightnin’ never strikes the same place twice
But the air burns again tonight   
The air burns again tonight
 
I spent a lifetime lookin’ out the corner of my eyes  
Hopin’ we’d meet again;  hopin’ love wasn’t blind
So how do I tell you  how much I still want you
Is it too early to call this love for the second time?
I know they say that lightnin’ never strikes the same place twice
But the air burns again tonight   
The air burns again tonight
 
Kinda crazy this way I’m feelin’   
I want to hold you and never let you go
There’s a fire that’s burnin’, burnin’ deep inside of me  
It’s the same old fire we lit so long ago
I know they say that lightnin’ never strikes the same place twice
But the air burns again tonight   
The air burns again tonight
 

America's Best Days Aren't Over Yet

I heard some people talkin’ bad about America
‘bout how we lost our way and the glory days are gone
So I got me to thinkin’ ‘bout America
Now I think those folks are just plain wrong
 
I know a thing or two about America
About the kind of people who feel blessed to call it home
They’re the first to help someone in need
Or take a stand for Liberty
They’re not the type to stay down for very long
 
America’s doors and windows are always open
So you won’t always see us in our Sunday best
But as you look around you’ll see
The pillars of democracy
America’s best days aren’t over yet
 
From the Jersey shore to Malibu
East, West, North, South and the Heartland too
America’s best days aren’t over yet
Freedom, hope and opportunity
The flag still waves for all to see
America’s best days aren’t over yet
 
In China the name for America is Meiguo
Meaning beautiful country and all our friends agree
When we come together it’s plain to see
The strength in our diversity
America’s best days aren’t over yet
 
From the Jersey shore to Malibu
East, West, North, South and the Heartland too
America’s best days aren’t over yet
Freedom, hope and opportunity
The flag still waves for you and me
America’s best days aren’t over yet 
 

You're My Harmony

Here I am starin’ at an empty page.
You see the words don’t easy come to me.
I stumble and I fumble when I try to say
Just how much you really mean to me.
I don’t think I could ever be
The man I am without you next to me.
You’re my harmony

Walking hand-in-hand on a rainy day;
I want to be with you as seasons change.
See the world and dance the night away;
Sit by the fire when we’re old and gray.
I don’t think I could ever be
The man I am without you next to me.
You’re my harmony
 
Where to start when there’s so much to say? 
How do I put my love on a page? 
 
I smile every time I see your face 
But it’s hard to arrest my feelings on the page 
Headin' down the path to follow our dreams 
Side by side we can do anything 
I don’t think I could ever be  
The man I am without you next to me. 
You’re my harmony 

Time

Time
Time keeps slippin’ away
Can’t stop the sands of time
Only fools and kings still try
But it always ends in vain
Time keeps slippin’ away
 
Time
Time keeps slippin’ away
It has no shape or size
But still it rules our lives
From birth till our dyin’ day
Time keeps slippin’ away

So many mem’ries are safe within my heart
Your joy and laughter are with me when we’re apart
 
Time
Time keeps slippin’ away
Only love can conquer time
So I’ll hold you in my mind
And you’ll never fade away
Time keeps slippin’ away

Lost in Summer's Lazy Days

Listen to the sound of the midnight train
Callin’ ‘cross the valley.
Heat lightnin’ puts on a silent show,
Fireflies dance around me.
Now I’m hangin’ on to any prayer at all
That this moment won’t fade.
Lost in summer’s lazy days
Lost in summer’s lazy days
 
A shootin’ star steals across the heavens above.
Crickets sing their love song.
A summer serenade for the two of us
I want to hold you all night long.
Now I’m hangin’ on to any prayer at all
That this moment won’t fade.
Lost in summer’s lazy days
Lost in summer’s lazy days
 
Lost in summer’s lazy days
No plans for tomorrow like today
Lost in summer’s lazy days
 
Ol’ moon’s starin’ like a chaperone
As we hang on to each other
A little bit of heaven when I’m in your arms
I want to hold you all summer
Now I’m hangin’ on to any prayer at all
That this moment won’t fade
Lost in summer’s lazy days
Lost in summer’s lazy days

Chains of Circumstance

Walkin’ down the tracks in Birmin’ham
Two steps forward and one step back
Tuxedo Junction, the Firehouse
Civil Rights Square quiet as a mouse
I heard the voices call for justice
To break the chains of circumstance
Heaven and earth can’t move me
Like the way you do
We’ll break the chains of circumstance
 
It’s time to come together; overcome fear’s silence
No child lost to hunger, disease or violence
 
Hurry up little child of mine
Pick up the pace, don’t lag behind
So many things to see and do
How could I ever shelter you?
I heard the voices call for justice
To break the chains of circumstance
Heaven and earth can’t move me
Like the way you do
We’ll break the chains of circumstance
 
It’s time to come together; overcome fear’s silence
No child lost to hunger, disease or violence
 
We’ve got a passion so hard to find
Gonna use it to change some lives
We’re not afraid to take a stand
To break the chains of circumstance
I heard the voices call for justice
To break the chains of circumstance
Heaven and earth can’t move me
Like the way you do
We’ll break the chains of circumstance
 
It’s time to come together; overcome fear’s silence
No child lost to hunger, disease or violence

Storm Comin'

There’ a storm comin’ over the mountain
Now it’s drivin’ me wild
I haven’t felt like runnin’ in the rain since I was a child
What to do I’m shakin’ inside
A flash of lightnin’ tears a hole in the sky
There’s a storm comin’ over the mountain
Now it’s drivin’ me wild
 
The wind chews the leaves in the trees
The day looks like night
Like a hungry amoeba clouds engulf my life
Part of me wants to run and hide
The other part stands mesmerized
There’s a storm comin’ over the mountain
Now it’s drivin’ me wild
 
I watch a leaf swirl into a storm drain
I wonder will it ever reach the sea
I think about how much my life has changed
I wonder what’s pullin’ me
 
Rain begins to fall like missiles it craters the dust
The hot August air gives leave to cool flowin’ gusts
So many changes in so little time
I’m wonderin’ what’s controllin’ my life
There’s a storm comin’ over the mountain
Now it’s drivin’ me wild

Kliptown

Don’t stare at us from the overpass
Come on down I’ll shake your hand
Welcome my brothers and my sisters too
Through these streets we will walk with you

Shine Kliptown Shine

Our children laugh, dance and sing
Far from schools and health clinics
Life’s a struggle, but they’re full of smiles
Get to know us  Stay a while

Shine Kliptown Shine

Now that our light is shining for everyone to see
Will they just come to stare or bring the change we need

Don’t stare at us from the overpass
Come on down  Lend a hand
You see my brothers and my sisters too
Would really like to get to know you

Shine Kliptown Shine

Never Steal My Soul

Will I hear the angels sing?
How will I know which path to follow?
Will I stand straight and tall
For what is right will I stay certain
Will I hear the angels sings?
 
You can take away my job
You can take away my home
Burn all my books off their shelf
But you’ll never steal my soul
 
I’ll speak whenever I want
Oh, I’ll say what I believe
Oh, my mind you’ll never control
No you’ll never steal my soul
You’ll never steal my soul
 
You can take away my job
You can take away my home
Burn all my books off their shelf
But you’ll never steal my soul
 
If we bulldoze down all the olive trees
There’ll be no branches left to extend for peace
Then how in the world will we ever agree
You’ll never steal my soul
 
I only have one voice
But don’t think I’m alone
Thousand of others believe as I do
We’ll never bow to you
 
If we bulldoze down all the olive trees
There’ll be no branches left to extend for peace
Then how in the world will we ever agree
You’ll never steal my soul

Already Home

I’ve been away
Too many days
If memories
Could carry me
I’d be already home
 
In quiet times
I close my eyes
I fool my mind
I’m by your side
How I wish I were already home
 
It hurts to think of you, but I just don’t care
If I can find a way I will be there
 
So far away
So I live for the day
When my dreams grow wings
And carry me
I’ll be already home
I’ll be already home
 
It hurts to think of you, but I just don’t care
If I can find a way I will be there

I wanna go home
I need to be home

Radio My Radio

Drivin’ back from Ol’ Nesebar
To the city with the yellow brick road
Summer night, the music’s playin’
On my radio 
Radio my radio

Radio my radio turn me on again
Radio my radio play my song again
 
Hear it in the streets of Beijing,
Mumbai, Moscow, London & Seoul
Where there’s heart and soul you’ll find it
From New York to Tokyo
Radio my Radio

Radio my radio turn me on again
Radio my radio play my song again
 
On La Rambla in Barcelona
Or in Rome and Berlin too
All around the world you'll hear it
From LA to Istanbul
Radio my radio
 
Radio my radio turn me on again
Radio my radio play my song again

It’s in the Bangkok streets every morning
It fills the Paris café’s at night 
All around the world you hear it
Bringing joy into our lives
Bringing joy into our lives
 
Radio my radio, turn me on again
Radio my radio play my song again
