1. BRACELETS OF FINGERS (THE PRETTY THINGS COVER)

These are a few of the things I find joy.
Bracelets of fingers since I was a boy.
Fly to the moon and I'll get there quite soon.
If I wait awhile.
Cradled in branches that stretched out their arms
I must wait awhile.
Bending my mind as I pick up the flowers in may,
Hearing the laughter that turns into tears evr'y day

Fly to the moon on the curve of a spoon
I turn upside-down.
Tumbling through leaves as I scatter the seeds
On an eiderdown.

Fly to the moon and I'll get there quite soon

If I wait awhile.

Daylight arrives with a turn of the skies
I must wait awhile.
Clouds building castles, the wind comes and
Blows them away
Tears in the water makes circles for me
As I play.

Fly to the moon on the curve of a spoon
I turn upside-down.
Tumbling through leaves as I scatter the seeds
On an eiderdown.

These are a few of the things l find joy,
Bracelets of fingers since I was a boy


2. EVERYBODY'S BEEN BURNED (THE BYRDS COVER)

Everybody's been burned before
Everybody knows the pain
Anyone in this place
Can tell you to your face
Why you shouldn't try to love someone

Everybody knows it never works
Everybody knows and me
I know that door that shuts
Just before you get to the dream
You see...

I know all too well
How to turn, how to run
How to hide behind
A bitter wall of blue
But you die inside
If you choose to hide
So I guess instead, I'll love you


3. THE TRAP (BONNIWELL’S MUSIC MACHINE COVER)

Vaguely reminiscent in the prescense of my mind..
Is the trap, the trap, the trap
And the feeling that the brotherhood is running out of time
In the trap, the trap, the trap
Loneliness is a gentle room

Loneliness is a gentle room
Somehow comes undone
Somewhere in the darkness is a light we almost find
For the trap, the trap, the trap
Catch'em all the fleeting thing, we know his peace of mind
In the trap, the trap, the trap
Loneliness is a gentle room

Loneliness is a gentle room
Somehow comes undone
So you see reality is a prison for the mind
In the trap, the trap, the trap
So capture all your yesterdays and leave the rest behind
For the trap, the trap, the trap
Loneliness is a gentle room

Loneliness is a gentle room
Somehow comes undone


4. IN THE PAST (THE CHOCOLATE WATCHBAND COVER)

Try my friend loving all the things we used to do
I realize there was not very much to love
But that's no reason to go on living in the past

Try my friend doing all the things we used to do
If you could color me, it would be darkest blue
Give me another chance
I'll love you more than in the past

It's up to you to do the things I want you to
Don't question me
It's gotta be this way

Please my friend hear me out before you have to go
It's time you understand
I think you ought to know
Give me another chance
I'll love you more than in the past


5. TODAY (JEFFERSON AIRPLANE COVER)

Today I feel like pleasing you more than before
Today I know what I want to do but I don't know what for
To be living for you is all I want to do
To be loving you it'll all be there when my dreams come true
Today you'll make me say that I somehow have changed
Today you'll look into my eyes, I'm just not the same
To be anymore than all I am would be a lie
I'm so full of love I could burst apart and start to cry
Today everything you want, I swear it all will come true
Today I realize how much I'm in love with you
With you standing here I could tell the world what it means to love
To go on from here I can't use words, they don't say enough
Please, please listen to me
It's taken so long to come true
And it's all for you
all for you...


6. CAN YOU TRAVEL IN THE DARK ALONE? (GANDALF COVER)

You are lost in the ocean of your dreams and what is real
But the blue green surface only covers what you feel
And the lighthouse that you find
Casts a beam across your mind and there's your home
But don't you ever wonder could you travel in the dark alone
You can sail by yourself but you're never on your own
You will search for the light in the way that you have known
And the lighthouse on the shore
Casts a beam into your door and there's your home
But don't you ever wonder could you travel in the dark alone

When your eyes start to think of all the things that can't be seen
You can stare into the darkness and discover what I mean
And the lighthouse that you see
Casts a beam that shines on me and there's your home
But don't you ever wonder could you travel in the dark alone


7. I HAD TOO MUCH TO DREAM (LAST NIGHT) (THE ELECTRIC PRUNES COVER)

Last night your shadow fell upon my lonely room
I touched your golden hair and tasted your perfume
Your eyes were filled with love the way they used to be
Your gentle hand reached out to comfort me
Then came the dawn
And you were gone
You were gone, gone, gone
I had too much to dream last night
Too much to dream
I'm not ready to face the light
I had too much to dream
Last night
Last night

The room was empty as I staggered from my bed
I could not bear the image racing through my head
You were so real that I could feel your eagerness
And when you raised your lips for me to kiss
Came the dawn
And you were gone
You were gone, gone, gone


8. STREET SONG (13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS COVER)

I walked down to the sidewalk,
The night was crying rain
I heard thunder wandering,
Like a crash in someones tin
I can tell from the lightnings flashing,
The storm would not refrain.
The wind blew through the treetops,
And I saw some windowpane
I heard someone down in the alley,
A little voice called out my name,
I saw the ghost of our wrecked romance,
It was lost in the pouring rain.

Well I'm going
Back to the country
Up on the mountains
Up on the rising side
And if you
Should ever leave me
Send me a letter
With some love inside

Where are you married?
And in a good place?
I need to know to be satisfied.

I walked on through the darkness,
The night still pouring rain
The wind blew through the treetops,
And I saw some windowpane
I saw the ghost of our wrecked romance,
It was lost in the pouring rain
One thing I have learned in my time,
In the skies and on the ground...
All the fires changed motivation,
Yet I burned to love that sound.


9. 66-5-4-3-2-1 (THE TROGGS COVER)

If ever you need me, baby
There's a number that you can phone
It's double six, five, four, three, two, one
Yeah I'll be there and I bet on my own

'Cause I know what you want
['Cause I know what you want]
'Cause I know what you want
['Cause I know what you want]

It's no use pretending, baby
I'm feeling the same way, too
So come on over to my place
There's so much that we can do

'Cause I know what you want
['Cause I know what you want]
'Cause I know what you want
['Cause I know what you want]

Someday we will overdo it
Someday we will go too far
I'll get drained of all my money
And I will even have to sell my car

'Cause I know what you want
['Cause I know what you want]
'Cause I know what you want
['Cause I know what you want]

I know that I must be crazy
But there's a number that you can phone
It's double six, five, four, three, two, one
Yeah I'll be there and I bet on my own

'Cause I know what you want
['Cause I know what you want]
'Cause I know what you want
['Cause I know what you want]


10. DARK IS THE BARK (THE LEFT BANKE COVER)

Surrounded in gold and priceless paintings
She loves
She lies in glistenings of
Reddish and blue

Darkness was all she could see
Lovely was all she could be
No one had bothered to be
Something she wanted to see
Darkness red (is the bark of the tree)
Living gray (is the bark of the tree)

Surrounded with boxes of people that once the day
I speak and my words begin to believe what I say

Darkness was all I could see
Lonely was all I could be
Loving was something to me
Somewhere for someone to see
It was shade (is the bark of the tree)
She's so mean (dark is the bark of the tree)

La, la, la, la


11. MAGIC HOLLOW (THE BEAU BRUMMELS COVER)

I want to know if you would go to magic hollow
Yes, come with me
Come up with me to magic hollow
Touch the stars as in a dream

Everything you touch is deemed
Magic, magic
Must make the time
Make it one time to what you are missing

Magic delight beyond your sights
Fantastic prisons
Lights and colors lingering
Spin them, touch, they are splintering

Magic, it's magic
My side is blessed
You have not guessed
So won't you follow

Follow through the dark
I hear the lark of magic hollow
Calling out a melody
Veiled within my memory

Magic, magic

16. WHERE IS YESTERDAY (THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA COVER)


(Agnus dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Miserere eis.

Agunus dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Donna eis requiem.)

Do you remember what you said and did
a thousand years ago?
Where is yesterday?

Do you remember what you said and did
a thousand weeks ago?
Where is yesterday?

Yesterday in crannies or in nooks you will not find;
Yesterday in chronicles or books you will not find;
All you see of yesterday is shadows in your mind;
Shadows on the pavement but no bodies do you find.
Do you believe that snows of winters long ago return again?
Where is yesterday?
A voice you knew a thousand years ago you can't remember when?
Where is yesterday?

Here is only waiting for a day that went before
Here is only waiting for an answer at the door;
Here is only living without knowing why for sure.
Here is something gone you cannot find it anymore.
