Until You Come Around Again Words and music by Jim Becker Vocal Hey's by Jamie Becker Soul by DFB I thought you said you wouldn’t cry over me I thought you said that you and I were history Nobody’s gonna dry your tears Until you come around again Nobody’s gonna dry your tears Until you come around again I heard you singing along with songs that sound so sad I heard you singing you never thought it could hurt so bad Nobody’s gonna dry your tears Until you come around again Nobody’s gonna dry your tears Until you come around again I’m the best one for you; I still believe that’s true And when your flight is through, you’ll believe it too When you come down, I’ll be waiting for you When you come down, Nobody but me will do Nobody’s gonna dry your tears Until you come around again Nobody’s gonna dry your tears Until you come around again Nobody’s gonna dry your tears Until you come around again Nobody Nobody Nobody

Burning Gasoline Words and music by Jim Becker Copyright 2015 Foggy Idea Music (ASCAP) Going nowhere fast on the freeway again Sitting on my ass in traffic again There goes my money, there goes my day Bumper-to-bumper, fender bender, get out of the way I'm burning gasoline... Burning gasoline... Burn burn burn burning my life away I'm burning gasoline... Burning gasoline Today is the same as yesterday Today is the same as yesterday Wasted time commuting back and forth to work Maybe this is much more work than it's worth Crash, bang, boom... another life ends Someone dying on the freeway again The blabber of the radio is melting my brain Gonna drive me effing insane CHORUS: When the weekend comes I just want to get drunk Another monkey wrench in my monkey trunk Today is the same as yesterday Tomorrow is the same as today Today is the same as yesterday Tomorrow is the same as today CHORUS: Every day is like the day before Is this what I went to college for? Two hours day, 10 hours a week My family and I rarely speak And still I struggle to make ends meet I'm just a cog in the wheel of the company Is this freedom why we go to war? Is this freedom why we go to war? Today is the same as yesterday Today is the same as yesterday Today is the same as yesterday Today is the same as yesterday Today is the same as yesterday Today is the same as yesterday Today is the same as yesterday Today is the same as yesterday

I Did It My Way Lyrics by Paul Anka Music by Claude François, Jacques Revau And now the end is near And so I face the final curtain My friend I'll say it clear I'll state my case of which I'm certain I've lived a life that's full I traveled each and every highway And more, much more than this I did it my way Regrets I've had a few But then again too few to mention I did what I had to do And saw it through without exemption I planned each charted course Each careful step along the byway And more, much more than this I did it my way Yes there were times I'm sure you knew When I bit off more than I could chew But through it all when there was doubt I ate it up and spit it out, I faced it all And I stood tall and did it my way I've loved, I've laughed and cried I've had my fill, my share of losing And now as tears subside I find it all so amusing To think I did all that And may I say not in a shy way Oh no, oh no, not me I did it my way For what is a man what has he got If not himself then he has not To say the things he truly feels And not the words of one who kneels The record shows I took the blows And did it my way

Less Is More Words and music by Jim Becker Copyright 1993, 2015 Foggy Idea Music (ASCAP) I can't lead you anywhere When I'm in your face Maybe you'll follow me If I turn and walk away Less is more I held a yard sale Sold everything I own Now I can once again Walk freely through my home The players in my band Never showed on time They're all gone now Here's the rhyming line

Another Stormy Day Words and music by Jim Becker Copyright 1986, 2015 Foggy Idea Music (ASCAP) Summer's almost here and I'm so cold The rains of days gone by are pouring down Everywhere I look I find no shelter I wonder if there's even one around It's just another stormy day My blues have turned to black and grey Maybe it's time to fade away I can remember the morning light of springtime For a while I felt like I had been reborn Somewhere along the way I feel into darkness Now the dreams that I once had seem old and worn When the day is done and the night is almost over I have time to think to myself I'm never alone but I always feel so lonely I look out at the sky and wish I were somewhere else

Manhattan Beach Serenade Words and music by Jim Becker Copyright 2015 Foggy Idea Music (ASCAP) Can it get any better than this? Can it get any better than this? Lying on the beach beneath the California sky Listening to the ocean, while the stars are drifting by Huddled under blankets on a mattress made of sand Your fingers in my hands Can we stay like this forever? Can we pack up this moment in a suitcase? Unpack it again wherever we land? Is this heaven? The place between the firmament and sky? Where dreams are made of visions? Ideas spreading wings and flying out beyond it all? So high This dream of you and I? Can we stay like this forever?

All Boxed In Words and Music by Jim Becker Copyright 1983, 2015 Foggy Idea Music (ASCAP) When the veil of boredom falls down on me It's like the only thing that I can see And it's blinding And soon I feel like I'm going nowhere I'm squinty-eyed and pulling out my hair It's confining I'm all boxed in Shipped and received Oh, I just can't believe this feeling All boxed in Now I don't wanna shout But would you please get me out of this situation? I'm all boxed in While I was sitting where you could not see I overheard you talking about me to a stranger I act strong cause I'm really so fragile I hide my fear while I smile in the face of danger

Down and Out Words and Music by Jim Becker Copyright 2015 Foggy Idea Music (ASCAP) How did I get here? To this uncertain place? Did I look past the signs that were there all along? Sometimes I hesitate. I'm down and out And I need you now I'm down and out Where are you now? Letting go can be hard Even when you see it coming They say new doors open as old ones are shut So I hit the ground running.

"Brand New Day" Words and Music by Jim Becker Copyright 2015 Foggy Idea Music (ASCAP) Whatever you believe, that's fine with me… Whatever I believe, is up to me I don't need to prove I'm right… We've got better things to do tonight Let's break out the music and bury talk radio Let's dance and sing and let the talking heads go, go, go Love over religion… Peace over tradition We won't be conquered and divided, hey!... It's a brand new day. You didn't choose to be born, neither did I… And we don't need to see eye to eye But we can choose to live peacefully… Even if we're raised up differently Let's break out the music and silence the religious noise Let's dance and sing and set free the girls and boys Love over religion… Peace over tradition We won't be conquered and divided, hey! It's a brand new day. I don't believe in magic...I don't believe in war I don't believe in money or possessions… They not worth dying for I don't believe I take anything with me when I die Except the love I left behind... I'm not in charge of you. You're not in charge of me You belong to you. I belong to me When we share our longing to belong It's a question of love, not right or wrong Let's break out the music in spite of the political sides Let's dance and sing across national divides Love over religion… Peace over tradition We won't be conquered and divided, hey!... It's a brand new day.

No Happy Colors Copyright 2010/2011 Foggy Idea Music (ASCAP) This is where the story begins It is the beginning of the end Come with me into the dark Where no light shines, not even a spark Where nothingness abounds The blackness is blinding And quickly unwinding Boom! Bang! Boom! Bang! I’ve got no happy colors No Happy Colors No Happy Colors My world spins around and around and around and around I’ve got no happy colors No Happy Colors No Happy Colors My world spins around and around and around and around Spinning in circles through time and space Waiting to die so I can fly to another place When this life we've been given is not good enough No time for people No time for love There's only time to die What if this is as good as it gets? The ground is rocking, the four winds are rolling, The sun is a black hole in the sky Personification of the stars Constellations and metaphors The barbarian astronomers knew when to plant But the so called prophets were singing a chant It’s a tune that never ends And it sounds like religion And deceives like a demon Pretending to have a peaceful solution through violence it cannot defend
