6 All That Matters

I'm so amazed when I look back
Well it's been one hell of a road
There were times I strayed off track
Been down so low with the weight of the load

It's time for love, time for you
Time for things we want to do
Time for fun, time for play
Time to figure out the way
Figure out some way
Let's begin today
Begin

Love this life
Love your life

All that matters now is where we go from here
And are we going there
If I'm with you then I don't really care
Everyday we're one step closer
And you are every reason
You give me strength to carrry on
Carry on...Carry on...

Let's live it up, let's live it up
Give it all that you've got now

This love is all that matters now
Right now
This love is all that matters
Now
3  Fear In This World

No one wants to spend their life in fear
We all want peace while we're living here
No side wins in a world of war
Where they drop that bomb
On your own front door

There's fear in this world
There's fear in this world

You can see the fear in the childs eyes
You can hear the fear when the child cries
You can sense the fear in the world today
I can sense fear in the things you say
You say there's fear in this world
There's fear in this world
Fear
4  So Far

So far, far from home
So far, far from home

It's hot and dusty on the enemy line
I keep a sharp eye on my post
I'd give my life to be anywhere else
back with those I love the most
What am I doing here and what am I fighting for
Wind up soldiers in a dirty little war
What are we doing here
and what are we fighting for
If there ever was a God
Wwe couldn't need him more

So far....
So far, far from home

It's cold and lonely when I lay down
I can barely sleep at all
In the distance I hear sirens cry
I'll get back home if I have to crawl
What are we doing here
and what are we fighting for
Wind up soldiers in a dirty little war
Is there a reason why anyone has to die
What kind of God would let us suffer more

So far....
So far, far from home

So far, far from
2  It's the Future

Take a look around today
Technology leads the way
Everything we do and say on a cel phone
There are cameras every place
Focused on your face
Every sound, everyword can be heard
There's an eye in the sky
The future is now
The future is here

We've got robots and bio-domes
They're fighting wars with drones
Mapping brains, creating clones
It's the future
You can watch a smart tv
You can buy things instantly
Anything you choose to see
it's all on line
There's an ebb to the web
The future is now
The future is here
The future is now
5  Music of the Sun

We sing the music of the sun
We sing, we sing

Everyday I try to give love
And work so hard to be aware of
All the good things life has given
With your love there's reason for living
You should know
I see tomorrow a vision so clear
It's not so far away
The future's so near
Leave tomorrow open
Time brings change
Change for the better
That's what they say

You're the one
The only one of the sun
Yeah!

I hear the music of the sun
It's deep in the soul of everyone
You can hear it if you close your eyes
It can lift you away
Music of the sun
And we can fly from here
We can make it from here
With our wings to the sun
To the sun

We sing the music of the sun
We sing. we sing

You're the one
The only one of the sun

You're the one the only one
Only one of the sun
Of the sun
7  Imagine That

I appear to be what I am
But that's not what I am
I appear to be what I am
But tha'ts not who I am

Some live their life
Chasing a dream to nowhere
Not me I've got another life
You don't know me
You'll never know me
Can you imagine that

I appear to be what I am
But that's not what I am
I appear to be what I am
But tha'ts not who I am

If you could see inside of me
With true open eyes
Knowing and feeling my very soul
But you don't know me
You'll never know me
Can you imagine that
Nothing is shocking
Nothing is shocking to us now... anymore
All that you see, well that's not who I am
Imagine that 
8 Rhyme & Reason

I really want to believe
that everything's gonna be alright
I really want to believe it's not too late to change
I really want to believe
we'll make it to the promise land
I've got this feeling and the futures looking bright
There's rhyme and reason to life
To this life

I look up to the sky
and all the stars in heaven above
And I'm still asking why the world's in need of love
You'd think with all we have
this world could be a better place
I really want to believe that every thing's okay
There's rhyme and reason to life
To this life
9  One More Dream

So many moments in my life
Have seemed to pass me by
So many faces that I have known
Right here before my eyes
All the people in your life
Who's love is undenied
The way they see you, they want to be you
So have a sense of pride
One more dream...
One more chance to make it right
One more dream
One more chance to see the light
See the light
One more dream
One more dream to turn my life around
I know it's out there to be found
One more dream
One more dream so I can live again
Live again
And when you look back down the road
Yeah, to any point in your life
Take a look back down the road
Yeah, you've survived

Take a look back down the road
One more dream
You survived

One more dream, one more time
One more chance, one more life,
One more dream

One more dream to turn my life around
I know it's out there to be found
10  Face In the Crowd

I'm so tired of running around
I'm so tired of running around
Well maybe I just need to chill
I wonder if I ever will
Lately what's inside my head just makes me blue

I'm just one more face in the crowd
Just another face in the crowd
Well maybe I just need a break
I'm still learning from my last mistake
Lately what's inside my head just makes me blue
And then there is you
Yeah you oh....always by my side
Helping to ease the load
Guiding us down this road we're on

I'm just one more face in the crowd
Just another face in the crowd
                     Face in the crowd
11  What's Inside

I still believe we can realign the path of man
And I still believe there's time
Still time to believe

I'm full of hope inside in spite of all that's died
Why should it be so odd to believe in God

What's inside of you, what's inside of me
What's inside us all

I still believe someday we'll cross the Milky Way
There's more to life than this
There's more to this life

What's inside of you
                   What's inside of me
                                 What's inside us all

What's inside, in your heart
                       In your mind, in your soul

What goes in your heart
                            In your mind
                                              In your soul
12  New Beginning

Today could be a new beginning
A chance to shape the rest of your life
So follow where your heart will lead you
And put an end to all the strife in your life
In this life
Yesterday is behind us now...yesterday
Make time to live
Take time to live and love
Take time to give
Make time to give yourself
Yesterday is behind us now
Time for change
Start tomorrow, start today
Better things will come your way
Free your mind some time
Take a chance and step beyond
Change your road and keep moving on
And free your mind some time
Yesterday is behind us now...yesterday
Today's a new beginning in this life
14   Remember What I Said

When this day is over
When you lay down your head
When this day is over remember what I said

Don't be afraid of the night
when you're alone in the dark
Close your eyes and the morning will come
Remember what I said

When the day is over
There's no place like home
When the day is over you don't want to be alone

Don't be afraid of the night
when you're alone in the dark
Close your eyes and the morning will come
Remember what I said
1  With You

There is one thing I'm sure of
When I look in your eyes
That I must have been lucky
You mean the world to me
Maybe God sent you down to set me free
You mean the world to me
And maybe I'm just lucky

You are the one who shines like the sun
You are the one
You are the one that shines like the sun
You are the one

So much time spent chasing after dreams
While everyone is stuck in old routines
So much time spent chasing after dreams
Everyone is stuck in old routines
But not for us

With you there is love
With you I'm alive
With you for all time
With you
