The Wonder Of You.........By John Demarkis & John Marsden We live in confusing times All around us disturbing signs The only thing that keeps me true Is the thought of you, the thought of you And as we live from day to day I'm more grateful in every way I know I've been blessed Oh to be with you, to be with you I'm lost in the wonder of you Oh yes I'm lost in the wonder of you The wonder of you Positive and diamond bright I see you as a guiding light The only thing that keeps it real Is the way we feel, the way we feel If we can make it through the tougher times Then happiness is ours to find And I'll still see that young girl when I'm looking in your eyes Cause I'm lost in the wonder of you Oh yes I'm lost in the wonder of you The wonder of you We live in confusing times All around us disturbing signs And I know I've been blessed To be with you, to be with you I'm amazed at all you've done Not for me but for everyone That's why I wrote this song for you Cause I'm lost in the wonder of you Oh yes I'm lost in the wonder of you In the wonder, the wonder of you In the wonder of you

Franklin Zoo 03:39
Franklin Zoo...................by John Demarkis I was riding on the orange line Early morning everything was fine I was sitting across from a girl like you She later got off at Franklin Zoo Franklin Zoo, Franklin Zoo So I continued on my way up town Thinking I'd check out what was going down Nothing much was happening when I got there So I turned and hoofed it down to Copley Square That Girl was on my mind And I could tell she wasn't just anyone I swear I'd seen her face before All day long she was dancing in my head And all night long I was turning in my bed I don't know why I let that woman get to me But none the less she did to some degree That Girl was on my mind And I could tell she wasn't just anyone I swear I'd seen her face before I was riding on the orange line Early morning everything was fine I was sitting across from a girl like you She later got off at Franklin Zoo Franklin Zoo, She got off at Franklin Zoo She got off

Comfort Zone 05:13
Comfort Zone.............................by John Demarkis I was out with the guys one night hanging at the local hole We were hoping for some kind of action Resulting in a common goal Gazing out across the crowd I saw her do a pirouette She was clutching a Margarita and puffing on a cigarette She had jaws dropping, eyes popping It was hard just not to stare.........try not to stare She looked so sweet like a Wall St. girlfriend of a millionaire Not just some ordinary woman But she had something more Like some one that you've known before Sunny....Sunny girl... Sunny.... Living in the comfort zone I heard she lives in a west side apartment on the beach in Sanibel She likes to drive up to Captiva just to watch the ocean swells She went to school in old New England.....honorary Ivy League And with a little help from her daddy she's got all she'll ever need What else could she ever need? It's the good life and it's so nice That's the only life she's known Her daddy's rich, ain't that a bitch living in the comfort zone Not just some ordinary woman.... Oh what a woman She had something more Like someone that you knew before Sunny....Sunny girl... Sunny.... Living in the comfort zone The sun is gonna be shining Sunny's gonna be shining Sunny....

No Secret......................... by John Demarkis Baby it's no secret how I feel about you I just can't get over these things that you do One thing I can promise from this moment on I'll sing about our love in every song I'm telling you You know it's true I'm telling you Sometimes it's not easy just getting through the day Please forgive me for things that I say Broken promises we couldn't keep They don't mean nothing when this life is complete I'm telling you You know it's true I'm telling you, Yeah Baby it's no secret how I feel about you I just can't get over these things that you do One thing I can promise from this moment on I'll sing about our love in every song I'm telling you I'm telling you...........

Wacky World 05:17
Wacky World.................. by John Demarkis We're all living in this wacky world We make our way through this wacky world Well I've been seeing this kind of wacky girl And I kind of like the way she makes me swirl Now I was talking with a friend of mine And he was telling me everything was fine Now I don't want to be the rain on his parade But I'm a man who calls a spade a spade There's a war still going on And North Korea has the bomb And my toes get curled from living in this wacky world We're all together in this wacky world On an itty bitty planet that the big bang hurled Tell me Jesus, am I going the right way And do you hear the things our leaders say 9-11 we'll never forget Everything's become a terrorist threat I'm glad I'm living in the USA But what makes us think that we can save the day There's a war still going on And Iran is trying to build the bomb And my toes get curled from living in this wacky world Wacky World We're all living in this wacky world Slipping and sliding through this wacky world You can see it every night on your TV screen But I've got to warn you it's an ugly scene Rampant corruption both sides of the isle Politicians lying with a straight up smile You can blame Republicans for making the mess But you know those Democrats are just like the rest, oh yeah! There's a war still raging on And everbody's got the bomb And my toes get curled from living in this wacky world In a wacky world

Good For The Soul .........by John Demarkis & John Marsden The weather is looking fine Things seem better when Winter is gone When the sun is shining bright All of your blues will be gone A change of season comes and goes A change of season is good for the soul Just got to get out of the house Go for a walk or a drive in the car I want to be out in the sun Instead of a bug in a jar A change of season comes and goes A change of season is good for the soul A change of season will come and go A change of season is good for the soul Good for the soul Let's say goodbye to Winter And say hello to Spring Open you arms for Summer And all that fall will bring Tomorrow might be raining But you can weather the storm Try to walk between the raindrops A little smile will keep you warm A change of season comes and goes A change of season is good for the soul A change of season will come and go A change of season is good for the soul Good for the soul

Turn Into Stone ..................by John Demarkis Every day I try just to catch your eye But you look away like you turn into stone It wasn't long ago a girl I used to know Liked to brighten up my day But she turned into stone How could I forget it's not over yet Though I'm standing on my own Since she turned into stone She turned into stone Just the other day I was on my way When I saw her face in the sky And it turned me to stone It turned me to stone How could I forget it's not over yet Though I'm standing on my own Since she turned to stone Since she turned into stone, stone Just the other day I was on my way When I saw her face in the sky And it turned me to stone Yeah It turned me to stone Oh turned to stone

Better Be Ready.................by John Demarkis We've been blinded by a punch to the eye With a sensory overload of pie in the sky You better get ready my friend When the new world order comes Cause daddy can't save your ass From what this world's become Get your universal healthcare deal And food stamp meals for everyone Government regulated motor cars The deals been done Better be ready We've been bent and shaped The truth is disguised With a culmination of a plan they divised (Tavistock Institute) You better get ready my friend Cause the new world order is here Cash in those 401-k's or they might just disappear Now everybody's buying gold While they're young for when they're old Multi hundred billion dollar stimulus plans (say what?) The politicians talk so bold Better be ready Maybe years from now looking back on history We'll still be known as the land of the free And maybe years from now Well reach to a time of peace A time of understanding In the world all war will cease We're all played like pawns But this is no game Trumps camping out on the White House lawn Clinton's trying to clean her stain Global warming's on the rise It's no surprise some say it's lies They're cashing in on the theme that the world is green You can see it on the news tonight Better be ready Better be ready my friend When the new world order comes Daddy can't save your ass Blinded by a punch to the eye Who are they trying to con Better be ready
