Track Name: October Blue
have a glass, share a smoke and some small talk
we put on our coats for a short walk
September sun in her eyes
and leaves start dancing

raising my head from the pillow
view of the world through her window
October Blue is the sky
a floating feeling

the autumn sun never lasts
why'd it set so soon?
and will I ever get past
October Blue?

I knew her light couldn't last
why'd it end so soon?
looks like I'll never move past
October Blue

buzz the door flight of stairs narrow hallway
together again on a fall day
September stars in my eyes
but I'm just dreaming

Track Name: Swagger in Step
the world won’t stop spinning
so why should we be grinning?
the absurdity exhausts and causes pain
yet at the least it keeps us entertained


I'm greetin' the morning with a swagger in step
I see the sidewalk bouncing back to meet me
kill the clouds with a raise of my chin
the sunshine wants to hear me whistle so sweetly

yesterday I was walking dead in my tracks
without a reason or a rhyme to hold on to
caught your eye and the fire came back
were you the someone new that I could belong to?

the swinging pendulum
of life moves on and on my friend
I know, ‘cause I’ve
been to both sides and back and forth like a yo-yo

so meet each morning with a swagger in step
and feel the whole world turning ‘round to greet you
raise the sun with a smile and a song
you gotta savor what you know won't last long

Track Name: Samba Wonderland
takin' a chance on you
incognito rendezvous
merry-go-round for two
and I'm laughing like a fool
try the best I can
can't avoid the quicksand
won't escape this love wonderland

fly me through your mind
set reality aside
sing a samba tune
let me dance it back to you
eternal carnival
join the band take my hand
here to stay in love wonderland

funny how at first I couldn't see you
through a foggy ordinary day
a double take
shook me awake

silly then how you were hesitating
to take me on this heady holiday
now wonderland's waves
will wash away
the dull taste of past lives
