Colours
(N. Andrews/ D. Johnson/A. Remanda)

I’m sorry you’re feeling blue but I love all your colours
Every shade brings something new for me to discover
Show me your shadows show me your dreams show me the faces no one ever sees 
Let me inside I’ll be what you need don’t be afraid you are safe with me

The colours shining from you lighting up the skies 
Illuminates the journey through your darkest night
In all your happiness and even when you’re blue 
In all your colours my love I see you

When the day is crashing down and you hear the thunder
I’ll lead you to safer ground there’s no need to wonder
If I’ll withdraw when the light starts to fade or if we’ll get lost in this lonely parade 
Build us a castle where love can remain open the doors I am here to stay

The colours shining from you lighting up the skies
Illuminates the journey through your darkest night
In all your happiness and even when you’re blue
In all your colours my love I see you

Made in America
(N. Andrews/ D. Johnson/A. Remanda)

He was in love with the danger baby
He hits the road leaves everything he knows and says “I don’t care”
No fear will contain him he’s born ready
Holes in his pocket the dream hit him like a rocket
He was made in America

She was working the nightshift daily
Wishing on a star she’s wrapped in her lover’s arms so far from here
Fantasy interrupted by her boss screaming
Quits slamming the door says “I don’t need this no more”
She was made in America

A state of “mine” bubbling inside like a bullet to my head
When opportunity comes you better take it and run or be left for dead
Where we all come first where the truth don’t hurt
For better or for worse we were made in America

See the ads on the TV and the magazines
Uncle Sam reaching out with his hand saying “I want you”
The children are laughing who they fighting
Soldiers march in line leave opinions behind
They were made in America

Notes on a History
(N. Andrews/ D. Johnson)

We came we saw we conquered all
We loved we laughed surrendered all
You saw yourself for the first time
Too vulnerable you changed your mind

They come they go don't mind at all
Was it a lie was it a lie
We rise we fall and never bother knowing the Why
I guess that's life

No one to blame we ran into the mouth of the flame
Not used to the burn you grew cold enough
The sun died enough
Ain't it crazy how

They come they go and they don't mind at all
Was it a lie was it a lie
They come they go and they don't bother wondering why
I guess that's life

They come they go and they don't mind at all
Was it a lie was it a lie
We rise we fall and never bother knowing the Why
I guess that's life

THE LOVERS
(N. Andrews/ D. Johnson/A. Remanda)

Speak low move close let the world disappear
There’s nowhere I would rather be than right here
I’ve heard people talk about it never had my own
A warm place the rarest thing I’ve ever known…like waking up inside a dream

No need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like apples and ruby rings

White lace fine shoes dancing around the room
We play like two lovers coming into bloom
Diptyque. John Lee Hooker’s playing. Blue Moon. Ruby Woo.
You smile and I sing my part to you: “…knocks me dead right off my feet”

No need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like flowers and tea

I won’t save it for later I’m gonna spend it all where we are
And whose to say we won’t waver for now we’ll try to be just lie with me

No need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like Paris, Miles and Joni
Yeah you’re my favorite thing like apples and ruby rings
