Track Name: Dangers Surrounding feat. Bluessunn
1. Dangers Surrounding
Lyrics by Natalie Nicole Gilbert

v1
Lost in the woods
No one to watch over me
So independent
why can't circumstance let me be
Brokenhearted
not as smart as I used to be
Still clinging to
the truth that I knew
The ground changed shape
when he said we were through
As if living without him would do
As if living without him would do

CH
Running from the silence
Running from the stagnance
Running until I've caught up with me
Running to the one who
was always there to save me
as much from myself as
dangers surrounding

v2
Stuck in the rut
that this has made for me
At least that's how it was
before beginning became ending
Over what I could be
or what I should be
but this is still my choice

CH
Running from the silence
Running from the stagnance
Running until I've caught up with me
Running to the one who
was always there to save me
as much from myself as
dangers surrounding

BR
I keep running back
I keep running back to you
I keep running back
to you
Dangers surrounding
Dangers surround me
Dangers surrounding me, hey yeah

CH
Running from the silence
running from the stagnance
running until I've caught up with me
Running to the one who
was always there to save me
as much from myself as
dangers surrounding, hey yea-heah
Track Name: Santa Monica feat. Composer Michael Gordon Shapiro
Lyrics and Music by Michael Gordon Shapiro (ASCAP)

V1
Beachside breakers after dark
Two young lovers lost in moonlight
chasing sparks
Stolen moments from a hidden cache of time
I'll spend some of yours
and you'll spend some of mine

V2
Barefoot children racing by
Laughter blending into surf and inky night
Ferris wheel divides the circle of the moon
Boardwalk beckons but we mustn't go too soon
First this moment -

CH
Santa Monica
Santa Monica
Let's savor life while time is on our side

V3
Dancing through Pacific foam
Distant mountains are their only chaperone
He's too slow and so it's catch me if you can
Ocean mists caress her thighs down in the sand
Stolen moments --

CH
Santa Monica
Santa Monica
Let's capture life while time is on our side



V4
Parking meters fast asleep
No one else is real, there's only you and me
Sacred hours, broken moonlight in your hair
Our conspiracy and memory to share
Just this moment --

CH
Santa Monica
Santa Monica
Santa Monica
Let's savor life while time is on our side
Track Name: Can't Take This Anymore feat. Benson Russell
Can't Take This Anymore -

200811.01 (re: need for change, economy facing trouble and all that comes with, a call to action to do our own part)

(Chords A/Am Em G D, tailing Dm on bridge)

V1
He pulled back the drapes
hoping for a different landscape
But as usual it was all the same
Why did it always have to be this way?
just a few leaves had changed
He was ready for something new any day now

CH
What can I do?
I can't take this anymore
It doesn't have to be this way
I have a say, I have a say
What can I try
to hang one more star up in the sky
I can't dismiss
all disaster amiss
but I can't take this
anymore

V2
You walk through the door
Another long day, you know there's still more
Collapse on that couch
Hope that any day now
you can just slow down
I'd make the world stop for you
if I could make it stop for me, too
But inability can only mean
there's still time

CH
What can I do?
I can't take this anymore
It doesn't have to be this way
I have a say, I have a say
What can I try
to hang one more star up in the sky
I can't dismiss
all disaster amiss
but I can't take this
anymore

BR
I've gotta live in this moment
Live out this moment
Live for this moment
Oh, I've gotta live in this moment
Live out this moment
Live for this moment, now

V3
Turn it around
The answer's always simplify
Can't let it get away
Something's different about today, hey yeah


CH
What can I do?
I can't take this anymore
It doesn't have to be this way
I have a say, I have a say
What can I try
to hang one more star up in the sky
I can't dismiss
all disaster amiss
but I can't take this
anymore

He pulled back the drapes
hoping for a different landscape
It all looked the same
but that was all about to change
Track Name: Breathing Hope - Candlelight Version
V1
You are a beautiful contradiction
Set apart for such a time as this
While all around you give in to their addictions
You strike the balance of time and risk

CH
Do you even know?
Can you even see?
Who you are exemplifies
A miracle to me
Caught up in your mystery
Breathing hope, breathing hope into me

v2
Your strength and your restraint
echo in each choice you make
taught by all that's light and all that's dark
You've seen the best, you've seen the worst
and even though it hurts
You understand the part that you have to play

ch
Do you even know?
Can you even see?
Who you are exemplifies
A miracle to me
Caught up in your mystery
Breathing hope, breathing hope into me

BR/V3
Hiding won't break your stride
with safety in your eyes
you carve out a different path
Cancelling the expectations
that you'll simply give in to nature
you paralyze defeat

Having seen both sides
helps us both to be wiser
facing all that lies ahead
reaching out for the prize
defined by someone higher
unafraid to use a different common sense

ch
Do you even know?
Can you even see?
Who you are exemplifies
A miracle to me
Caught up in your mystery
Breathing hope, breathing hope into me

Track Name: Here Now feat. Benson Russell
Here Now

Everything is better,
nothing is best
At least not yet
All is called to question
All is but a guess
I am not ready to rest
I am not
No, I am not, no

CH
Caught up in the madness
Caught up in the blast
Caught up in the make believe
No longer make believe at last
Caught up in the present
No longer in the past
This is where I meant to start
But at least I passed the test
And I'm here now
Oh, I'm here now
Here now
V2
Everyone is trying
but no one's got the breath
to run this race
Unselfish pace
means slowing down
But I am not ready to rest
Oh I am not
No I am not, no-oh
CH
Caught up in the madness
Caught up in the blast
Caught up in the make believe
No longer make believe at last
Caught up in the present
No longer in the past
This is where I meant to start
But at least I passed the test
And I'm here now
Oh, I'm here now
Here now
Track Name: Winter Nights feat. Bryce Langston
So I, I look at you
That same old way
I always do
And you
You turn away
As if to say
Don't treat me like that

Like it was for show
We waited around
For a time that we could be sure

And you, you turn to me
And just like that
I see in your eyes
That you, you
You wanted to
Be the one
To turn things around

Like it was for show
We waited around for a time
that we could be sure
Just holding on to memories of
those Winter Nights
I'm holding on
Cause time won't let me go

In you I find
The one that I
Can place my hopes in
And I (And I)
I wanted you
To be the one
To stay by my side
and all

I wanted was in you
So we waited around
For a time when we could be sure
Just holding on to memories of those Winter Nights
I'm holding on
Cause time won't let me go

Track Name: Slip & Say feat. Pianist Craig Swanson
Slip & Say -

200705.30

V1
If I slip and say I love you
Don't listen
Darling, it was just a slip of the tongue
I just have so many friends & family
I say these words to
I accidentally said them to you

V2
If I slip and say I love you
While we're
tangled up in an embrace
Don't be scared or worried
Oh Honey, I'm in no hurry
You'd know that if you could see my face

V3
If I slip and say I love you
Please, don't listen
Or you may wrongly conclude
That we are somewhere we're not
And that might start a DTR
Or a 'Define The Relationship' talk
For those who don't know

BR
Oh, I'm not afraid to
Say what I mean and
mean just what I say
I just didn't have my head on straight today

Inst. Br.

If I slip and say I love you
Oh boy
You have my full permission to ignore
Or to translate these words
As I like you, value you, have fun with you
Just don't say I love you, too
I love you, too
Oooh, don't say 'Ditto'
Or te adoro
It was just
a slip of the tongue

Track Name: Waiting feat. Judith de los Santos
Waiting -

Key of E on Piano

V1
I've been waiting
for these clouds to clear
Hoping to whisper
to you my dear
I've been waiting
practicing what to say
so many versions in my mind
will one of them make you stay?

CH1
Here by my side
in this darkest night
No longer dark with you
here in this candlelight

V2
I've been waiting
Wishing to hear you speak
Trapped in this silence
That I want you to break
I've been waiting
Looking into your eyes
maybe you'll see it in my smile
or hear it in my sigh

CH2
I wouldn't lie
I couldn't fight
Longing to be with you
Here in this candlelight

BR
I've been waiting
I've been waiting

CH1 (higher)
Here by my side
in this darkest night
No longer dark with you
here in this candlelight

Track Name: It Wasn't All I Hoped It Would Be feat. Dana Bisignano
It Wasn't All I Hoped It Would Be -

200704.01
By Dana Bisignano and Natalie Nicole Gilbert

I have dined with queens and kings
Set sail to the seven seas
Confessed my sins to a thousand priests
And I've chanted in Tibetanese

Led the way as a captain of industry
Ran away the day the sky fell
Set my foot upon the debris
But it wasn't all I hoped it would be

Once swam from the shores of Sydney
To the edges of Dover Beach
and achieved highest nirvana
it's always well within my reach

I have healed the poorest of India
Housed them in the Taj Mahal
then brought down the Berlin Wall
But it wasn't all I hoped it would be

(Instrumental bridge)

I performed for 80,000
had them in the palm of my hand
and discovered ancient ruins
that answered the questions of man

But it wasn't all I hoped it would be
No it wasn't all I hoped it would be
Perhaps that's the irony
