Track Name: With You
With You .................. by John Demarkis

There is one thing I'm sure of
When I look in your eyes
That I must have been lucky... lucky
Well you mean the world to me
Maybe God sent you down to set me free
You mean the world to me
Or 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
Track Name: It's The Future
It's The Future ........................ by John Demarkis

The future is now... the future is here
The future is now... the future is here

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 every word can be heard
There's an eye in the sky
The future is now... the future is here
The future is now... the future is here

We've got robots and bio-domes
We'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 online
There's an ebb to the web

The future is now
Track Name: Fear In This World
Fear In This World .......................... by John Demarkis

The only thing we have to fear is...(9-11)...Fear itself
In the wake of 9-11
You're either with us or you're with the enemy
We must guard against the military industrial complex
Some talk oil
Isis is continuing it's string of gruesome mass killings
It started as a war on terror
9-11 has been a pretext
This is an attack not just on the people of France
This is an attack on all of humanity
And the universal values that we share
Tragedy that has no end in sight

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 child's 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.........................
Track Name: So Far
So Far ............................ by John Demarkis

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
Windup soldiers in a dirty little war
What are we doing here
And what are we fighting for
If there ever was a God we couldn't need him more
So Far...So Far...So Far... So Far

So Far, far from home
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
windup 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...So Far... So Far

So Far, far from home
So Far, far from home
Far from home
Track Name: Music Of The Sun
Music of the Sun .................... by John Demarkis

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

Every day 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
And 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....that's what they say

You're the one, the only one of the sun
You're the one, the only one of the sun

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 the music of 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 of the sun
Track Name: All That Matters
All That Matters ................... by John Demarkis

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 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
Cause everyday we're one step closer
And you are every reason
You give me strength to carry on
Carry on...carry on...carry on... carry on

Let's live, let's live
Let's live it up, give it all that you've got
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
This love is all that matters
Right now
Track Name: Imagine That
Imagine That .................... by John Demarkis

I appear to be what I am but that's not what I am
I appear to be what I am but that's 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 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 that's 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 don't know me
You'll never know me
Can you imagine that
Nothing is Shocking... nothing is shocking
Nothing is shocking to us now anymore
All that you see
Well that's not who I am
Imagine that
Track Name: Rhyme & Reason
Rhyme and Reason .....................by John Demarkis

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 future's looking bright
There's rhyme and reason, there's rhyme and reason
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 everything's okay
There's rhyme and reason, there's rhyme and reason
There's rhyme and reason to life
To this life

There's rhyme and reason, there's rhyme and reason
There's rhyme and reason to life
To this life
Track Name: One More Dream
One More Dream ............... by John Demarkis

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 to turn my life around
One more dream so I can 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

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
Track Name: Face In The Crowd
Face In The Crowd ....................by John Demarkis

I'm so tired of running around
I'm so tired of running around
Maybe I just need to chill
I wonder if I ever will
Cause 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
Maybe I just need a break
I'm still learning from my last mistake
And 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
A face in the crowd
I'm just one more face in the crowd
Face in the crowd
Track Name: What's Inside
What's Inside .......................by John Demarkis

What's inside of you....

I still believe we can realign the path of man
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 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's inside of you, what's inside of me
What's inside us all
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 on in your heart
In your mind, in your soul
Track Name: New Beginning
New Beginning .................... John Demarkis

Today could be a new beginning
A chance to shape the rest of your life
So follow where your heart may 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... time for change

Start tomorrow, start today
Better things will come your way
Free your mind sometime
Take a chance and step beyond
Change your road and keep moving on
Free your mind sometime... free your mind some time

Yesterday is behind us now
Yesterday is behind us now
Yesterday
Today's a new beginning in this life
Track Name: Remember What I Said
Remember What I Said ............... by John Demarkis

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

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
What I said
Remember what I said
