Track Name: The Wonder Of You
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
Track Name: Franklin Zoo
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
Track Name: Comfort Zone
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....
Track Name: No Secret
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...........
Track Name: Nice To Know
Nice To Know..................by John Demarkis

Anywhere you go every guy is watching you, it's true
Any place you go every eye follows you and all you do yeah

Well there's no place I'd rather be
I like what I think I see in you
Honey you're sure looking sweet
The one that knocks me off my feet is you

Anytime at all, it doesn't matter
Whenever you need me you've got a friend
And isn't it nice to know that there is someone
That you can count on in the end
Oh, I don't mean to put the pressure on you
But I can't wait to see you again

There's no place I'd rather be
Cause I like what I think I see in you
Honey you're sure looking sweet
The one that knocks me off my feet is you
You

There's no place I'd rather be
I like what I think I see in you
Honey you're sure looking sweet
The one that knocks me off my feet is you

Anytime at all, it doesn't matter
Whenever you need me you've got a friend
And isn't it nice to know there is someone
That you can count on in the end
Track Name: Wacky World
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
Track Name: Good For The Soul
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
Track Name: One & All
One & All................ by John Demarkis & John Marsden

I will always love you
I promise to be true
To you and only you girl
And I will never let you down
I'll kiss the very ground that you walk upon
Oh and I will always take the fall
I'll be there when you call
As sure as daylight falls tomorrow
You're the only one I ever needed
You're my one and all

I remember the first day I met you
From across the room I could swear
That you were the one for me
Well everybody said you're crazy
Just another fool in love, yeah

So look at us together baby almost 20years
There's been joy and tears
But I wouldn't trade it at all, no
The only one I needed
Oh, my one and all

I will always love you
I promise to be true
To you and only you girl
And I will never let you down
I'll kiss the very ground that you walk upon
Oh and I will always take the fall
I'll be there when you call
As sure as daylight falls tomorrow
The only one I ever needed
You're my one and all
That's right

Now I'm on may way
At the end of the day getting home to you
And I still can't wait to close that bedroom door
Yeah you give me every reason
You're my one and all
Baby you're my one and all
My one and all

I will always love you
I promise to be true
To you and only you girl
And I will never let you down
I'll kiss the very ground that you walk upon
Oh and I will always take the fall
I'll be there when you call
As sure as daylight falls tomorrow
You're the only one I ever needed
You're my one and all
Yes you are
Baby yes you are
Track Name: Celebrate
Celebrate............by John Demarkis & John Marsden

Looking back over the years
Well there was so much love
so much love we shared
Looking back those were the days
Life seemed easier with so much less in the way

So let's celebrate... celebrate
Celebrate the joy that's in our lives today
Let's celebrate with the ones we love
Don't hold back what you're thinking of
Celebrate everything good in our lives
And just do what's right
Life is a celebration
Just do what's right

I was out walking around in our home town
as the sun was going down
I was thinking about how lucky we are to have each other
when love is so hard to be found

Let's celebrate... celebrate
Celebrate the joy that's in our lives today
Celebrate the good times you've had
Celebrate there's no time to be sad
Celebrate all that's good in our life
And just do what's right
Life is a celebration
Just do what's right

Let's celebrate... celebrate
Celebrate the joy that's in our lives today
Well let's celebrate our life so far
Celebrate how blessed we are
Celebrate, Celebrate, Celebrate oh yeah..
And just do what's right
Life is a celebration
Track Name: Turn Into Stone
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
Track Name: Better Be Ready
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
Track Name: Still
Still .................... by John Demarkis

I'm hoping someday you can forgive me
Didn't I say I'm sorry a long time ago
No one ever sees you around anymore
I never got to tell you what I want you to know
I still want to be with you
Yeah baby I still think of you day and night
Though it's not right
And I still wish that you felt the same
The way that I do
And I still hope that you won't deny what's true

I'm hoping someday you can forgive me
Didn't I say I'm sorry a long long time ago
No one ever sees you around anymore
I never got to tell you what I want you to know
Want you to know
I still want to be with you
Yeah baby I still think of you day and night
Though it's not right
And I still wish that you felt the same
The way that I do
And I still hope that you won't deny what's true
I still
Track Name: Until Tomorrow
Until Tomorrow ............... by John Demarkis

I've got no plans today
I'm totally free until tomorrow
Maybe I'll drive around
And check out the latest sounds on the radio
There's nowhere I need to be
There's no one needing me
No place I need to go
I've got no plans until tomorrow

I'd really like to call
The girl who causes all my sorrow
She's got no idea that I'd do it all again tomorrow
There's nowhere I need to be
There's nobody needing me
There's no place I need to go
I've got no plans until tomorrow

I've got no plans today
I'm totally free until tomorrow
Maybe I'll drive around
And check out the latest sounds on the radio
You will always be a special part of me
Do you have any idea
Well I'd do it again tomorrow
I'd do it again tomorrow
Track Name: The Good Times
15 The Good Times ..........by John Demarkis

Driving home on Sunday anticipating Monday
It's gonna be a long week till Friday
When the weekend comes around again
Maybe we'll drive to Freeport
Stop for lunch in Kennebunkport
You can shop for something nice to wear on the way home

These are the good times
These are the good times
These are the good times now

Why don't we take a long vacation to some place in the sun
With no phones no TV stations
I just wanna have some fun

These are the good times
These are the good times
These are the good times now

Driving home on Sunday anticipating Monday
It's gonna be a long week till Friday
Till the weekend comes around again
Track Name: Lucky Day
16 Lucky Day ............ by John Demarkis & John Marsden

Out of nowhere yesterday
An angel came my way
I thought I heard her say
This is your lucky day
This is your lucky day

And since that moment
My life has changed
Nothing's been the same
Since the day she came my way
And I heard her say
This is your lucky day
This is your lucky day

If an angel comes your way
You'll know it in your heart
Forever you'll be blessed by her caress
This is your lucky day
This is your lucky day
