Lyrics & Credits in alphabetical order:

Complete Peace – Left my job, I was spent, then paid two month’s rent / Bought an open end ticket, hopped on a train / Through midnight mountains, next stop windy city / And when I saw bison, I felt my heartbeat again / Got lost in great stories from whom thought plain folks / And plenty of others I met on the way / Gave into the strange and the beautiful scenery / My little life fading with each word they’d say / Went camping with strangers and caught a few dollies / Played sugar pack checkers while the city awakes / Detour through Canada, last minute Vegas / Shot cans in the washes with my newfound friends / Then up on a some mountain so far away, I knew this was where I was supposed to be / Complete peace, peace / A free lift up Route 1 when stranded at Big Sur / Standing room only to see War & Peace / A wake up to laughter and a chocolate happy cake / A time to reflect over Japanese tea / Before on my way home, a huge double rainbow / Oh, daddy I want you to know I’m okay / To give up my false sense of security / I gladly do it, in a minute again someday / Then up on a some mountain so far away, I knew this was where I was supposed to be / Complete peace, peace     ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP    drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff, acoustic guitar – Kevin Hanson, electric guitar & percussion – Glenn Barratt, cello – Michael Ronstadt, piano – Tracy Colletto

Falling Back – Its quiet and calm, and not one cloud in sight / Then the tips of the trees start blowing / Moving along, a bright looking sky / Carrying on, but unknowing / Confident, self-assured and satisfied / Then a windstorm of questions catch up from behind / Oh, I’m falling fast, I’m falling back again / Oh, I’m falling back, I’m falling back again (oh no) / Plunging and tumbling, toward the core of the storm / Then carried up, over it soaring / Out from the dust, clearer once more / Then landing again on a path restored / Until I’m falling back, falling back again (oh no)     ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff, electric guitar – Kevin Hanson, additional guitars – Glenn Barratt, cello – Michael Ronstadt, piano – Tracy Colletto

It’s Alright – I need you / And I’ve tried everything I know and its not working / I’m tired, so tired / Then you walk into the room / And you tell me its alright / Funny how your words can push me through, me through / Then its alright, its alright, its alright / Heavy is light, heavy is light / And I know your love’s around me, I can feel it in your smile / Crazy what something so simple can do, can do / In your smile, it’s alright, it’ll be alright     ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff, electric guitar – Kevin Hanson, electric guitar – Glenn Barratt, cello – Dan Dalaney, viola – Petula Perdikis,  violins – Eliza Cho & Michelle Bishop, piano – Tracy Colletto

It’s Over – I don’t think you understand, you say I’m alright / You tell me I’m a liar, so I never cry / I hear all those words you say, I look up to you / And I accept them as if they are true/ But it’s over, it’s over, over now / Yes, It’s over, over, over / Silence is my best friend, we get along well / You ask me what I’m up to, and I never tell / Not trusting anyone, my heart filled with rage / You tell me that you love me, and I turn the page / But it’s over, it’s over, over now / Yes, It’s over, over, over / And as I plant my feet on solid ground Everything’s different, everything’s different / What’s done’s twisting and turning around Everything’s different, everything’s different, now / Cause it’s over, it’s over, over now / Yes, It’s over, over, over / For it’s over, it’s over, over now/ Yes, over, over, over now     ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson,  bass – Chico Huff, electric guitar – Kevin Hanson, additional guitars – Glenn Barratt, piano – John Conahan

Keep on Changing – There is this house up on this hill/ And I really like it, really like it / There are these folks, I really miss / I wish they were here, I wish they were here / And why does everything have to keep on changing, keep on changing / I’d rather stay on this hill to see the water reflecting the sun, reflecting the sun, reflecting the sun / There’s many places where I have been /And I really love it, really love it / I wish the bliss that I have there / Can it stay with me, can it stay with me / As long as I live, I’ll keep on roaming, keep on roaming / But I still long for this hill, where I can stay, and I can see /Just where this is going, just where this is going /And those I miss, they are so dear / Can I take them with me, take them with me / To this house up on this hill / We’ll be together, be together /Why does everything have to keep on changing, keep on changing / I’d rather stay on this hill to see the water reflecting the sun/ yeah and why does everything have to keep on changing, keep on changing / I’d rather stay on this hill to see the water reflecting the sun, reflecting the sun, reflecting the sun, reflecting the sun        ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff,  electric guitars – Kevin Hanson, acoustic guitar – Glenn Barratt, cello – Michael Ronstadt, piano – Tracy Colletto

Open Road – Tearing away with no hesitation / This is the day we’re no longer listening / Move over mountains Rolling off extra weight / Peeling off layers throwing them away / We’ve got the keys with no further delay / Open road / Here we go / We should of done this years ago / Precious time that we can’t be wasting / Stretching beyond the bounds we were making / Knocking down walls / And shedding no tears / Peeling off layers throwing them away / We’ve got the keys with no further delay / Open road, here we go / We should of done this years ago / What were we thinking, its hard to believe / There would be any other way there would be any other way     ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff, electric guitar – Kevin Hanson, additional guitars & percussion – Glenn Barratt, cello – Michael Ronstadt, piano – Tracy Colletto

Patmos – On this fairest day in history / Is when I found this peaceful mystery / I cannot believe it, oh I can’t believe / I want to stay and never ever leave / Sweetest fragrance blowing from the sea / Awakening the bells in symphony / I cannot believe it, oh I can’t believe / I want to stay and never ever leave / Everything that’s weary of this life, falls far behind me / Everything is seen in different light / Everything that’s weary of this life is far behind me / Everything is seen in different light / I’m Finally free to take flight, flight / I cannot believe it, oh I can’t believe / I want to stay and never ever leave / I cannot believe it, oh I can’t believe / I want to stay and never ever leave         ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnsonbass – Chico Huff,  electric guitar – Kevin Hanson, additional guitars – Glenn Barratt, cello – Michael Ronstadt, piano – John Conahan

Release Me – To be always patient, to be always kind / To be everything and always right / In a perfect world, but not here / Words that hurt for years and stay alive Crazy thoughts that eat you up inside / Throw it all away in the raging fire / Release, release me, I need out of this place / It’s getting old in here, it’s so wrong and it’s been too long / I’m running out, leaving this behind, so long, good bye / To be always special to be always bright Time to leave this to remain alive / And throw it all away into the raging fire / Release, release me, I need out of this place / It’s getting old in here, it’s so wrong and it’s been too long / I’m running out, leaving this behind, so long, so long / Time to clean the house, without a doubt I feel the clouds are lifting / Time to clear the air, to settle things, I feel the days are shifting / Time to sweep the ashes, find another place and make it beautiful / Release, release me, I need out of this place /It’s getting old in here, it’s so wrong and it’s been too long / I’m running out, leaving this behind, so long so long so long / So long, so long, g’bye, so long     ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, electric guitar – Kevin Hanson, additional guitars – Glenn Barratt, cello – Dan Dalaney, viola – Petula Perdikis, violins – Eliza Cho & Michelle Bishop, piano – Tracy Colletto

Stay – Despite myself, I know there’s something I can offer you / Although I try, there’s always something I regret / A thousand times I may have brought you grieve or made you weep / A thousand times, I may have made you laugh instead / Stay with me, stay don’t you ever leave me anymore / Stay with me, stay we’ll be friends we’ll be friends forever more, forever more / We all wake up and wonder where our lives are heading to / But its alright, there’s always someone who adores you / Stay with me, stay don’t you ever leave me anymore/ Stay with me, stay we’ll be friends we’ll be friends forever more / Stay / Stay with me stay don’t you ever leave me anymore / Stay /Stay with me, stay we’ll be friends we’ll be friends forever more      ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff, electric guitar – Kevin Hanson, additional guitars & percussion – Glenn Barratt, cello – Dan Dalaney, viola – Petula Perdikis,  violins – Eliza Cho & Michelle Bishop, piano – John Conahan

Summer – Summer summer you’re my best friend, let’s play in the woods and hang out near the brook and swim again / You are my heaven, you are my world now, just me in this small town / These are the days when dreams are free / Life was easier, at least that’s what it seems the reach was so far away, I was waiting waiting waiting / Maybe, someday years from now I’d see all these places beyond the faces of my pen pals / The songs that I sing underneath the street will then come out, my love to create will be able to take me through a living somehow / These are the days when dreams are free / Life was easier, at least that’s what it seems the reach was so far away, I was waiting waiting waiting / Check under every rock for signs of life / Come face the wind as you ride down hill on your bike / Go find a blackberry patch in the fields, pick as much as you like / These are the days when dreams are free / Life was easier, at least that’s what it seems the reach was so far away, I was waiting waiting waiting / These are the days when dreams are free / Life was easier, at least that’s what it seems the reach was so far away, I was waiting waiting waiting      ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff, acoustic guitar & percussion – Glenn Barratt, cello – Dan Dalaney, viola – Petula Perdikis,  violins – Eliza Cho & Michelle Bishop, piano – Tracy Colletto

The Ride – Okay, you stomped on my foot, I’ll just watch it / Although you stole my book, I guess you really need it / The credit from-me that-you-took, I take it as a compliment / And I’ll know better next time / You want to only talk about you, I find this entertaining / You say that you don’t like my shoes, you don’t have to wear them / You wish me to be somebody else, but you stay the way you are / It takes different kinds / Like a gator needs to bite / Like Godzilla starts a fight / Like the day gives into night, its inevitable, inevitable / We are bound to collide / It’s all good, we’ll be just fine / Thanks for sharing the ride / You think I’m an overgrown child, I like my sense of humor / The stories that you make up of me, take great imagination / When you kicked me out of your house, you did me one huge favor / The charms of being alive / Like a gator needs to bite / Like Godzilla starts a fight / Like the day gives into night, its inevitable, inevitable / We are bound to collide / It’s all good, we’ll be just fine / Thanks for sharing the ride, thanks for sharing the ride      ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff, acoustic guitar & mandolin – Kevin Hanson, electric guitar & percussion – Glenn Barratt, fiddle – Gary Oleyar

Victory – What if I take a giant leap into the sea / Finally take a step for all that I believe / And the waves so full of life, they envelope me / To wash away the cares that aren’t supposed to be, supposed to be / What if I give up everything so dear to me / All that I’ve worked so hard to have and fight to keep / And as each disappears, I dance merrily / To celebrate the wonders of simplicity, simplicity / What if I listen to these words I say? / What on earth am I waiting for anyway? / For what I’d rather do is chase the heart than the ghosts of yesterday / What if I could run without the fear of feeling free / Only look ahead, but never look behind me / Never glance beside me, never think of defeat / As I’m moving closer to this day of victory, victory, victory       ©2015 Tracy Colletto, Lore Music Publishing ASCAP   drums – Erik Johnson, bass – Chico Huff, electric guitar – Kevin Hanson, fiddle & mandolin – Gary Oleyar, piano – Tracy Colletto
