Track Name: Sunshine Street
the morning sunshine catches my eye
after a night of dreams fillin' the sky
gonna carry on down the path i'm on
heading down sunshine street

i love to ramble far and wide
in this earthly paradise
i ain't lookin' for a story of love
but i think that it's found me

your eyes are like crystals shinin'
in the days for you i'll be pinnin'
but i gotta be on my way
perhaps you can ride with me

the moon gives me time to sleep
the sun gives me my life to lead
the street is mapped by the breeze
and it'll take me to where i go

i could climb my ladder to the stars
i could dig for treasure of the years past
none of those would make me feel so good
as to have you by my side

this life is just one big street
full of places and people to meet
now and then you stop awhile
but you gotta come to the end

so maybe you can come with me
give me your heart to love and keep
i'll cherish it both night and day
from now till the settin' sun
Track Name: Freedom Dances Under The Sun
my eyes softly wake to the day
tomorrows dreams take their shape
i'll pass the crowd of captive souls
who's dreams were gambled and sold
freedom dances under the sun

everyone's innocent while they dream
when you wake what do you see?
do you follow a crowd of step free?
what's illusion, what's reality?
freedom dances under the sun

kaleidoscope images shine
in the beauty of a child's mind
wonder and belief that all can be
when did you surrender your right to dream?
freedom dances under the sun

the world needs people who dream
musicians, poets, painters who believe
love will give you more than your money can
open your eyes and you'll understand
freedom dances under the sun
Track Name: Love In Your Own Way
a new day dawns, people preach the way of the land
it's written every woman must find herself a man
there's no space or time to dream or achieve
she must live in a bubble that breaks if she doesn't please
everyone should be allowed to love in their own way

when you go to the factory, do you go with a smile?
you'll work till you're worn out, thrown on a pile
your imagination might just see you through
but you'll end up tired and lonely if your dreams pass though
everyone should be allowed to love in their own way

when you see a butterfly pass you in a sunny street
do you wish you were like them flying in free?
love is open to many interpretations
but it can't be wrong if feelings the motivation
everyone should be allowed to love in their own way

nobody should let the world get them feelings down
some clear thinking would wipe away the clouds
just as the flower pops up through the crack in the ground
you can show your beauty amongst those in the crowd
everyone should be allowed to love in their own way
Track Name: The Newest Star In The Sky
a sadness fills the sky tonight
a sadness fills the sky my love
the moon shines down on the lake so bright
and you're the newest star in the sky

forever it seemed you'd be with me
throughout the seasons of life
but now i have to face it all alone
but i know you're twinkling bright

a tear i will shed for you tonight
a tear i will shed for you my love
though you'll be fine in the sky
i'm sad that you're not by my side

you are now part of the map of hope
hearing wishes from the world below
i hope someone hears mine tonight
and i can hold you close one more time

you are the newest star tonight
you are the newest star my love
shine on brightly through the years
like you shinned brightly in life
Track Name: Goodnight To You
"goodnight" to the moon say the stars
"goodnight" to the sun say the flowers
"goodnight to you, goodnight to you"
"goodnight to all on earth"

"it's time to sleep" says a mum to her child
"shut your precious eyes and dream a while"
"goodnight to you, goodnight to you"
"see you when the sun is due"

"goodnight" to the beach says the sea
"goodnight" to the road says a traveling gypsy
"goodnight to you, goodnight to you"
"goodnight to all on earth"

around the world lullabies are sung
you'll sleep till the morning bells are rung
"goodnight to you, goodnight to you"
"see you when the sun is due"

"goodnight" to you from me
"i know you'll be fine in the land of dreams"
"goodnight to you, goodnight to you"
"goodnight from me to you"

goodnight
