Everything To Me (free) 04:01
You're the trip that takes me far You're the candy in my jar You're all the salt that's in the sea You are everything to me When I left you at the station I couldn't begin to see Just how much I'd miss you Just how much you mean to me You're an eagle in the sky You're the ice cream on my pie You're a teacher teaching me And you're the wind that sets me free You're the one who makes me feel good You're the one who makes me see Because of you I understand now Who it is I'm supposed to be In the days before I met you I always wondered who you'd be Now my question's answered Life's been good, it brought you to me You're the trip that takes me far You're the candy in my jar You're all the salt that's in the sea You are everything to me You're an eagle in the sky You're the ice cream on my pie You're a teacher teaching me And you're the wind that sets me free

The Time has come around To kneel upon the ground And praise our mother earth Realize what she's worth We could know We should know We need to know her name Rivers, lakes, and streams They're all asking 'please' Couldn't we agree To live in harmony With the earth Know her worth End these foolish, dirty games I like mountain streams More than limousines Give me pure white snow Instead of neon glow We could know We should know We need to know her name The stars are shining down It's amazing how We forget that they Watch us all our days Hard to show it But I know it They know They know our names

You And I 04:25
Lady If we try You and I Could touch the sky Do you remember the time We swam in the sea I liked it when You swam with me I love you I love you girl You fill Up my world You know I'm sorry For all the times That I hurt you And made you cry I love you I love you girl You fill Up my world

Tears on her cheeks Rolling down Find a pathway To the ground She can't hide What she feels inside Got to find a doorway Out, a way outside There's that voice inside her head again Telling her She'll need a friend To help her find the wonder Keep it till the end It's raining roses Got to find Close contact with the sky A little confused Don't know where to start It's very loud this beating heart Jupiter's strong in the sky Tonight and I need to know How to go Show me how to live I thought I'd know All the ways There are to go But now, you know I'm not so sure Jupiter keeps an eye on us Knows if we have enough To get by She and I

When I go away from here Your face in my mind Won't fade remains clear Always gonna stay inside No words Could tell how I feel, now It seems absurd But it felt so real, somehow I can't let This thing end Not yet Time will slide So easily What would you do, girl If you were me It's a new world And I can believe again Open my heart To a friend like you A girl like you And now I'm on my way from here Your face in my mind Won't fade remains clear Always gonna stay inside It's been such A short, short time with you, here Now I'm leaving I can never stay near The girl I love Cause I move on I'm always moving on

I can see See clearly I can breathe For the first time freely It did not just happen today It's something for which I've had to pay I had to learn exactly why I had wings but never did fly I can see See clearly But I can't speak Can't speak freely So many remain blind To the love that lies inside Open your mouth about it and you'd better hide Cause they want to keep it locked up tight Mrs. Green She's a friend of mine She helps me see I visit her from time to time She can show me what's real Helps me know how to think and feel Together we expose the lies Gives me wings so I can fly If we could see See clearly Then we might breathe Might breathe freely We could learn to look inside Use the love that we should not hide Then we'd all know the reasons why We'd all have wings and we'd all fly

Sunshine 03:50
The wind has started blowing, Here comes the rain It seems that nothing's going To remain the same Darkness may fall Upon the land But sunshine will shine Sunshine will shine again And clouds are rolling in It seems the rain will soon begin To fall upon us all Unless we answer to the call Turn off the moon for me tonight I can't sleep, things don't seem right I'm full of feelings I'm not sure I should feel I'm not sure anymore just what is real And the truth should be quite clear But it's far away from here Where all I can see Are all the lies surrounding me The wind has started blowing, Here comes the rain It seems that nothing's going To remain the same Darkness may fall Upon the land But sunshine will shine Sunshine will shine again Sunshine will shine Sunshine will shine again Sunshine will shine Sunshine will shine again

There is a man, he can see A man they call the enemy It's been this way throughout history The enemy is the man who sees The enemy of the kings and queens They say he's a bad man And the people believe it, they don't understand That he's not really a bad man But the people don't see, they don't understand The people don't see, they don't understand There is a man and they say He's a dangerous man who's gone astray He lives his life in a different way The dangerous man is the man who strays The man who strays will not obey [[Free When will we see We should be We should be free You and me Cause it's our destiny To believe Get off our knees Dream our own dream Dream our own dream]] Those that lie to you and me Don't want the truth to set us free It's so very plain to see Power corrupts the kings and queens Power corrupts the kings and queens If I could take your hand Lead you on help you understand I'd take you to meet the man Then you'd really understand You'd know the truth and you'd understand There is a man, he can see Some believe he holds the key To unlock our destiny Teach us all how to be free Show us what we could not see Help us to dream our own dream

Life's the means to an end Life has meaning in the end We all need a friend To show us The way There are lights that show the way Lead us on day by day We've all got demons and debts to pay But there are lights that show the way She said it doesn't make much sense There's all this pain and accidents Break me down Day after day She said it doesn't make much sense There's too much pain and violence And arguments For which we all pay "Sit awhile and stay with me," she said "I need someone to help me see That tomorrow could be Much better than today" End of story She walked away Looking forward to better days With better ways And nicer games to play

When the time it comes For you to get up and run Don't be afraid to go Cause fear hurts you, you know A candle flickers in the wind Don't mean it couldn't begin To burn oh so bright Now it's flame lights up the night When the time it comes The feeling always comes And it's sure that you'll know What direction to go When you've got to be free Not always able to see What lies ahead up the road Sometimes, there's no way to know If I asked you please Would you come with me I know it's not an easy way But I need you to stay with me So we'll make our way on Over and beyond Seeing what there is to see, girl You and me

The Same 04:27
Don't take your eyes off the sun Or stare too long You will find the way If you ask the sun For an answer to come Soon you'll find the way When nighttime arrives If you're still alive Nothing will seem the same There'll be hard times ahead It's good to have a friend Up until the end It's good to have a friend A star shining down Can burn the ground Eliminate the rain Shadows on the ground Dance without sound And go home at the end of the day This song is for the one The burning son Who knows we're all the same Don't take your eyes off the sun Or stare too long You will find the way This star shining down Darkening the ground Can take away your pain We can be just like the one We call the sun Really we're all the same

Hands 05:37
Another song about a boy and a girl Hand in hand walking through the world But it never seems to stick around One hand alone can't clap, it makes no sound Now it's over Now it's gone The girl stays in California The boy moves on He can think about it, California And the good love there, that's gone Hard times, it's the same old story A story often told A hand won't return To the hand it used to hold Now it's over Now it's gone The boy left his heart in California Far away, long gone He can blame it all on California So many good things there, gone wrong The hardest part of all is goodbye You'll only cut yourself asking why The good times come, and they go Don't ask why, cause you'll never know Now it's over Now it's gone The girl stays in California The boy moves on He can think about it, California And the good love there, that's gone

about

Organic and original genre crossing rock. Funky, jazzy, soulful, sometimes folky, sometimes electronic; psychedelic and full of feeling. This is an album that has a full sound but doesn't suffer from overproduction. Once again Greg played guitar, saxophone and sang with James Whiton on double bass and Guido Perla on drums. Many of the songs were recorded in the moment, capturing the feeling of three great musicians in a room just doing what they love to do - playing music. It's a rock album, but all three musicians are well versed in jazz and improvisation and this freedom definitely comes through. This is almost like an album and a half - the first ten songs feature the band playing upbeat songs, and the next five songs are just Greg, taking the listener deep inside. In this time of computerization and plastic disposable music, this is an album of real musicians playing real music with a real message.
