Track Name: Take A Step
When you  take a step
and you lift your foot
you gotta let go
of the ground for a bit
Hey you can't forget
that wen you take a step
wherever you were gotta disconnect

Chorus:
And it might take time
to get used to the new ground
it might take time
to put your foot back down

Make a move sugar do the walk
i don't care if ya skip and trip
just pick it up stomp and shake away
i know you wont look back

chorus

go on take a step
a new start is so easy to get
come on lift your foot
Take A Step

When you've found the ground
and you're all back down
a move is made
your all in line
in line to gear 
gear up for another
another foot back down
Track Name: Box Of Prayers
This is where I keep a wheel of fortune
This is where I keep my dreams
This is where I keep all my recycling
This is where i keep myself
In a box of prayers

This is where I keep lucky dimes and chimes
This is where keep away from pain
This is where I keep the news at eleven
This is where I keep myself
In a box of prayers

This is a space for me and you and all the other ones to.. In a box of prayers

This is where I keep lost and found
This is where I keep hoping it’ll be OK
This is where I keep everyday
This is where I keep myself
In a box of prayers

This box I made all those times I’ve fallen
This box I made of forgotten things
This box I made to remember all the reasons
Why I keep myself, why I keep myself
In a box of prayers
Track Name: Owl
“A wise old Owl sat in an Oak
the more he saw the less he spoke
the less he spoke the more he heard
why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?”
(first verse writer unknown)

Owl he felt so little he thought
in ideas Owl never got caught
Without a doubt he stayed true in the world
Don’t you wish we could
all be like that wise old bird?
Why can’t we all be like him
he’s a wise old bird..

And there Owl sat in his Oak tree
looking at you looking at me
and when he saw the things we do
he made himself heard:
-’You should try to be like me!
I’m a wise old bird’

Why can’t you all be like me
Why can’t you all be like me
I’m a wise old bird!
solo

When you hear him at night
singing who-who
all his really asking you is why
tell me why...

Why can’t you all be like me
I’m a wise old bird.
Track Name: Baby Boo Got Gone
Days keep turning - yesterday's gone
tomorrow's got everything - more for some
me I gotta learn  - to have and hold
and then let go - coz I can't afford your smile
tomorrow you'll be yesterday
Baby Boo will get gone

Some got plenty - some got none
one had and now it's gone
a few might get what they've never had
me I'm glad I got my own
though I could sure use your smile
but today turned to yesterday
Baby Boo got gone

I left all them burdens that held me close to you
I feel pretty happy even though 
Baby Boo got gone

Hey old friend - how are you?
why don't you drop me - a line sometime
I'd sure like to know
what you do when you feel alone
me myself i miss you some
if yesterday could be tomorrow
Baby Boo never been gone

Tomorrow always says I do
for richer and poorer
Baby Boo said bye, bye
and there ain't nothing I can do
but remember you like yesterday - oh, Baby Boo
If yesterday could be tomorrow
Baby Boo never been gone
Track Name: Fallen Star
Fallen Star

The moon looks so alone hanging in the sky
or perhaps I'm the one
perhaps I see myself in her
though I don't hang that high
neither do I glow - but I try

When I see the moon 
I catch myself
long for home
in some strange way
when i look at her
I feel as if I was a Fallen Star

Fallen Star in a foreign place
trying to heal my broken rays
A Fallen Star perhaps we're all
each a Fallen Star

Tell me when you see the moon at night
do you feel a longing so tight
as if you came
from up there
as if you were a Fallen Star

A Fallen Star in a foreign space
trying to heal your broken rays
Twinkle to me once baby twinkle to me twice
if that's how you feel
when you see the moon rise
Perhaps we're all a Fallen Star
Perhaps we're each all a Fallen Star
Track Name: Funky Rattle
I didn’t say - you got it bad
but what you got - I wont have
i don’t like - the way you wanna hang
oh, now baby.. you no man
you got a funky rattle
why don’t you tune yourself up

it’s what you do - that don’t fly
see i know - what you hide
oh, you smooth - kinda smooth and sly
hey now darlin’ - ya can’t make me cry
you got a funky rattle
you better tune yourself up

oh, you talk - like you the cock of the walk
but hear you limpin’ by dark
oh, now baby I need it - straight up
clear cut and clean
I don’t do no funky rattles
I prefer me one good drum

if you got a funky rattle - don’t be shakin’ it at me
if you got a funky rattle - don’t be shakin’ it at me
Just tune yourself up
