Stranger

we were all the kids in the neighborhood
started not bad and we got real good
gettin it together almost every night
marathon jammin and we doin it right

bangin the roots rock steady with style
creatin songs used to make us all smile
donít know what happened but it's been too long
let's do it all again

chorus
youíre such a stranger
there is no danger
to come round here where you belong
we were all so tight back then
just remember and donít be a stranger

all the time weíd meet up right after school
mad band practice made me feel so cool
I wanna bring that back, make some noise
jam those songs out with my boys

Iíll be out there searchin for our old crew
and we're savin the best spot for you
weíll pick you up so just say when
get it together again

--chorus--

bridge
weíll chill right out
and write new songs
canít you feel the energy

all we ask is just come back one more time
when we play it you will feel our thoughts combine
itís good food for the soul and I recommend
letís do it my good friend

--chorus--

My Old Best Friend

so if you don't see me around
I'm probably ok
my old best friend is a comin to town
and I might be gone for days

we'll be drivin down main street
there's a party in the front seat
our old song is on repeat
hot rubber on concrete

you can leave a message
I'll get back, might be in a few days
my old best friend is a comin to town
and we're gonna get away

we'll be hangin at the beach
cool margaritas in reach
movin to a ska beat
never gonna retreat

--ad lib--

ahhh it's my best friend
ahhhh from way back when

--ad lib--

so if you don't see me around
I'm probably ok

ahhh it's my best friend
ahhhh from way back when

my old best friend is a comin to town
my old best friend is a comin to town

I'm alive and I'm thinkin of you
some other day maybe I'd get away
but right now there's just nothin to do

I won't let up you got to try it
there's no reason to be inside
get out the door c'mon and ride with me

chorus
it's automatic
just say the word and I'm with you
I don't need to decide
count me in for the ride
it's automatic

hey wait a minute I'll get out my bed
let the sun in and clear my head
I gotta say ya just made my day
cause I'd probly(probably) be lazy instead

hurry get out I'm waitin for ya

there's just so much for us to see
so move it, let's go, c'mon and ride with me

--chorus--

So Long

I been workin too hard I'm talkin straight thru
so why would anybody ever want to
now take a break is what I'm gonna do
and hit the beach to spend some time with you

I gotta good job it's a little bit boring
that pretty soon I'll be ignoring
it's like I'm workin for the weekend
5 days swimmin in the deep end

chorus
so long....
my troubles long gone....long gone
hello to the sunshine
goodbye to the pain
so long

I'm gettin tired of always thinkin "is it friday?"
every day is like the next it's like a replay
I need to get out where the sun is shinin
and plan my getaway find the right timin

I can pull a midnight shift, work overtime
we'll get a few days off we need to unwind
have every thing we need to break away
so you might catch me takin off for the day

--chorus--

bridge
I can see the endless blue sea
I can hear the waves crashin under me
I can smell the ocean breeze
don't wake me up

so now it's time to start the final countdown
in 10 minutes you won't find me around
cause once I slip out the other way
I'll be at the beach for the rest of the day

say the word and I'm right behind you
just let me know where I can find you
that's right cause now we're on our own time
with 3 days in the sunshine

--chorus--

it's time let's break away

--chorus--

Faith In Yourself

someone save me, hear me out
I know exactly what Iím talkin about, because
love can hurt, and thatís a fact
I thought it had gone but here it's back
all I need, is just a little faith in myself, Iíll be alright

never worry, when in doubt
thereís only one way to really find out
before you go puttin your heart on the shelf
you gotta have a little faith in yourself

you're askin me, and Iím tellin you
the way to win a heart
is to give away a part of yours
now I can see, that what you really need
is just a little faith
cause this love is knockin at your door now

I might worry and I might doubt
but the thing is that Iím gonna find out
if it's love thatís at my door
then Iíll just keep it open for evermore

bridge
I always, you always, we always fear what we canít see
my heart is, your heart is, our hearts are beating

I can see it, Iím looking past
there is some kind of love that will always last
before you go puttin your heart on the shelf
you gotta have a little faith in yourself
you got to have a little faith in yourself
a little faith is what youíre lookin for now

(ad libs, etc.)

Little Bit

Reggae Lullaby

find a spot on your big soft bed
a cozy pillow and lay your head
you made it through a long hard day
now it's time to drift away

fall asleep just close your eyes
to a reggae lullaby
let the moon shine down its beam
take you to a perfect dream

float away
drift away

chorus
fall asleep just close your eyes
to a reggae lullaby
let the moon shine down its beam
take you to a perfect dream

reggae lullaby

float away
drift away

--ad libs--

breathe in breathe out
breathe in breathe out
float away

--chorus--
