#01     LOVE IS THE SHORT WAY HOME

       
1) YOU MAY WANDER THROUGH THE DRY DESERT SANDS,
 OR TACKLE THE FACE OF A STEEP MOUNTAINSIDE.
 YOU MAY DIG DEEP FOR GOLD TO THE BONE OF YOUR HANDS,
 AND TRAVEL THE ROAD THAT LEADS FAR AND WIDE.

CHORUS: THROUGH ALL YOUR QUEST, IN THE END YOU WILL FIND,
 THAT A LIFETIME OF DREAMS, OVER SEAS, THROUGH THE STORM,              
 WHEN THE JOURNEY IS EASED,  BY A PEACE IN YOUR MIND,
 THAT LOVE WAS THE SHORT WAY HOME.
 THAT LOVE WAS THE SHORT WAY HOME

BRIDGE: SOME SEARCH FOR YEARS FOR THE PERFECT MATE,
 AND SOME SPEND THEIR LIVES TO PERFECT BECOME,
 AND SOME NEVER LEARN BEFORE ITS TOO LATE,
 THAT LOVE IS THE SHORT WAY HOME.

3) WE MAY RUN TILL WE DROP TO ESCAPE WHAT WE FEAR,
 AND PRETEND WHAT WE FEAR ISN’T SOMETHING WITHIN,
 BUT ITS NICE TO KNOW ESCAPE CAN BE NEAR,  
 AND THAT LOVE IS THE SHORT WAY HOME.

           #02                TOO MANY TIMES


1) TOO MANY TIMES THE WORDS OF LOVE ARE USED LIKE LITTLE KEYS,
 TO OPEN HEARTS WHICH DO NOT KNOW THAT LOVE CAN NOT BE SPOKEN.
 LOVE CAN NEVER BE UNTRUE BUT WORDS CAN BE UNTRUE WITH EASE,
 AND HEARTS MISTAKING WORDS FOR LOVE ARE HEARTS THAT WILL BE BROKEN.

CHORUS: TOO MANY TIMES WE COMPROMISE JUST TO WEAR THE RING,
 FORGETTING SO CONVENIENTLY THAT LOVE’S A ONE-TIME THING.
 WE SELL OUR LOVE OFF CHEAPLY AND LEARN WHEN ITS TOO LATE,
 THAT ONE-TIME THINGS SO MANY TIMES ARE WORTHY OF THE WAIT.
 
2) ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO RECONCILE THE CRAVING FOR ATTENTION,
 WITH TRUE AND EVERLASTING LOVE THAT SATISFIES THE HEART.
 YET FOOLISH MINDS CONFUSE THE TWO, TOO MANY TIMES TO MENTION, 
 AND KNOW NOT LOVE BECAUSE THEY FAIL TO TELL THE TWO APART.
 
CHORUS:

3) TOO MANY TIMES WE LOOK TO LOVE TO SATISFY A DIFFERENT NEED,
 AND THEN FORGET TO LOVE FOR ALL THE NEEDED THINGS WE GET.
 WE LEARN THE ONE THING WE FORGOT WHILE TRYING TO SUCCEED,
 IN GETTING THINGS WE NEEDED NOT, IS LOVE WE HAVEN‘T GOTTEN YET.

         #03             THE WIZARD OF OOHS AND AHS  

       
1) THE WIZARD OF OOHS AND AHS WANTS CONTROL OVER ALL WE DO
        WHAT WE THINK, HOW WE ACT, HOW WE DRESS, OVER WHAT MAY BE FALSE OR TRUE.
      HE BULLIES THE HUMAN RACE AND SWAYS THE PUBLIC'S OPINION,
      WITH A WORD OR SUGGESTION IN JUST THE RIGHT PLACE, HE ATTAINS HIS WORLDLY DOMINION.

CHORUS:   A SLY LITTLE WIZARD IN HIDING WIELDS HIS POWER OF SUGGESTION.
  HIS SOLE OCCUPATION IS GUIDING THE MASSES TO ACT WITHOUT QUESTION.
  ISN'T IT TIME WE INQUIRE AND TIME THE CURTAIN BE PULLED?
 THE WIZARD IS NO ONE WE SHOULD ADMIRE,  HIS INFLUENCE MUST BE ANNULLED.
   
2)    AHHH! NOW THAT'S THE CAREER TO PURSUE! OOOH! AND AREN'T YOU PRETTIER THIN?
 OOH! THE WORLD OWES A LIVING TO YOU! AHHHH! YOU'RE HORRIBLE IF YOU WIN?
 OOOH, AND ISN’T AMERICA MEAN? AHH, AND AREN‘T THE WEALTHY SUCH CADS?
 AHH, WHY NOT BURN THE AMERICAN FLAG!  YOU’RE NOT ANARCHISTS JUST UNDERGRADS.
   
3) BUT THE ONES WHO ARE STRONG AND SMART, CAN NEVER BE LED BY HIS PLOYS.
 INSTEAD THEY ARE LED BY THE HEART AND UNCOUNTED AS ONE OF HIS TOYS.
 WELL HE THINKS HE CAN RULE THE WORLD AND HE CAN IF THE WORLD EVER LETS HIM.

 BUT THE POWER HE HAS LOSES ITS STRENGTH THE MOMENT THE WORLD SUSPECTS HIM.

4) OH THE TROUBLE WITH WIZARDS IS THEY ARE REALLY NOT WISE,
 AND THE ONE THING ABOUT THEM YOU COME TO DESPISE,
 IS THEIR OOHS AND THEIR AHS ARE UNENDING.
 WITH THE PURPOSE TO MINDS AND THEIR BENDING.

CHORUS:


ENDING: HIS INFLUENCE MUST BE ANNULLED

          #05            HEY, LITTLE BOY 

1) HEY, LITTLE BOY, WITH BIG BROWN EYES,
 BRIGHT MIND, AND TINY HANDS, WHO IN YOUR YARD AT PLAY
 SAW AND BUILT GREAT THINGS OF TINY SIZE, 
 WITH ROCKS AND STICKS AND CLAY.

2) HEY LITTLE BOY, WHOSE PRECIOUS SMILES  PLEASE,
 AND IN THAT SMILE IS EVERY SIMPLE GOOD.
 THE HOPE OF ALL YOUR PEOPLE IN YOUR EASE
 OF ONE FINE BOY JUST BEING AS HE SHOULD.

CHORUS: ARE ARTFUL HANDS REDUCED TO HURLING ROCKS?
 AND HANDSOME EYES BEHIND A RAG CONCEALED?
 WHAT TURNS A BRILLIANT MIND TO BOMBS ATTACHED TO CLOCKS,
 WHAT VENOM CONJURED HATE, WHAT LIES HAVE HOPE REPEALED?
   
3) HEY LITTLE BOY, YOUR FUTURE BRIDE AWAITS,
 THE PLEASANT YEARS AHEAD OF YOU OUTSTRETCH.
 AND CHILDREN EVERY MAN ANTICIPATES,
 AND ALL THE JOYS OF LIFE ARE IN YOUR REACH.


CHORUS:


ENDING: HEY LITTLE BOY   HEY LITTLE BOY   HEY LITTLE BOY   HEY LITTLE BOY

                    #06              STAY
 
MALE PART:
 I KNOW SHE NEEDS ME TO STAY, BUT THE WORLD CALLS OUT SO STRONG,
 ITS A GAME OF BACK AND FORTH I PLAY: CONFUSED WHATS RIGHT, WHATS WRONG.
 THE CHOICE LEAVES DOUBT OF THE UNKNOWN, BUT THE JOY I FEEL THAT SHE'S MY OWN.
 THE COMFORT OF THE HOME WE MADE, GAVE ME PEACE. I ALWAYS STAYED.

FEMALE PART:
 I KNOW HE THINKS OF LEAVING, EVEN THOUGH HE LOVES HIS HOME,
 AND I THINK I'D BEAR THE GRIEVING JUST TO SEE HIM ON HIS OWN,
 ITS SO GOOD, THOUGH, HAVING HIM AROUND, AND SHARING EVERY DAY,
 WITH THIS MAN I LOVE AND THE LIFE WE FOUND.  OH STAY, MY LOVE, PLEASE STAY.


CHORUS: (DUET)
 EVERY MOMENT WE'RE TOGETHER IS A GIFT UNPARALLELED,
 WHEN I LOOK AT YOU, I SEE MYSELF SO CLEAR,
 YOU ARE THE GREATEST TREASURE BY FAR I’VE EVER HELD,
 WE ARE ALL I EVER WANTED AND ALL I WANT IS TO HAVE YOU NEAR.

BRIDGE:


(MALE PART)
 TO STAY IS NOW MY GREATEST PRAYER,  TO CLING TO YOU WITH ALL MY MIGHT,
 AND IF I GO, NO MATTER WHERE,  WE‘LL GO AS ONE AND HANG ON TIGHT.


(FEMALE PART)
 OH THE WORLD DOES PULL AND TEAR APART,
 BUT THE WORLD KNOWS NOTHING OF THE HEART.

CHORUS:


ENDING: WE ARE ALL I EVER WANTED AND ALL I WANT….. IS TO HAVE YOU NEAR

                      #07                SCARS  

    
1) SO OFTEN WE ARE WOUNDED AND IT ALWAYS LEAVES A SCAR,
 LIKE MEMORIES OF INCIDENTS THAT MAKE US WHO WE ARE.
 THE WOUNDS THAT PEOPLE LEAVE ON US MAY TAKE A LITTLE LONGER,
  BUT HEALING, AS A PROCESS, MAKES US STRONGER.

   CHORUS: OUR INJURIES ARE MASTER STROKES ON PRICELESS WORKS OF ART,
 MORE PAINFULLY THEY MAR THAN ANY BRUSH OR PALLET KNIFE.
 BETRAYAL, DISAPPOINTMENT, LOSS, AND ILLNESSES IMPART,
 THE TEXTURE AND THE COLOR TO OUR LIFE
 
2) WOUNDS SUSTAINED THROUGHOUT EMPERILED YEARS,
 LIKE MARKERS IN OUR LIVES OF DANGERS PAST,
 ARE LASTINGLY RECORDED AND REMEMBERED BY THE SCARS,
 THAT WE SUSTAINED, SUFFERED,  AND AMASSED.

    BRIDGE: SCARS, OH SCARS, EXCEPTIONAL CREATIONS.
 UNIQUELY TRACED STIGMATA OF THE HEART.
 BEAR WITNESS TO THE PAST AND ITS HORRID SITUATIONS,
 AND GRACE LIFE’S HUMAN GALLERY OF ART.


  CHORUS:


3) THE AWFUL WOUNDS WE DOUBT WE CAN SURVIVE,
 MORE OFTEN TIMES THAN NOT OUR BODIES HEAL,
 ASSURING US THAT COME WHAT MAY WE LIVE,
 AND ONLY SCARS REMEMBER EACH ORDEAL.

                     #08            IF I WERE GOD

 
1) IF I WERE GOD, I’D DANCE ABOVE THE ANT HILLS YOU CALL GREAT.
 AND TIP-TOE ROUND YOUR  DOME AND CROSS AND STEEPLE.
 I’D LEND NO EAR TO PRAYER INSPIRED BY HATE, NO - OH - OH
 THAT CALL ON ME TO SLAUGHTER MY OWN  PEOPLE.

2) IF I WERE GOD, I’D PONDER ALL THE RICHES IN YOUR REACH,
 AND THE NUMBER OF YOU SUFFERING FROM LACK.
 I’D WONDER AT STUPIDITY THAT KEEPS YOU IN THE BREACH, MMM-MM-MMM
 OF BONDAGE WITH THE SUN UPON YOUR BACK.

CHORUS:  IF I WERE GOD, RELIGION WOULD BE BANISHED,
 AND HUMAN LIFE I’D WANT YOUR GOD TO BE.
 THE BORDERS YOU CREATE WOULD LONG AGO HAVE VANISHED,
 ALONG WITH FEAR, MISTRUST, AND ANIMOSITY. 
  
3) IF I WERE GOD, I’D TELL YOU THAT THIS LIFE IS ALL YOU HAVE,
 AND TO LIVE IT WITH THE GREATEST STYLE AND GRACE,
 TO BUILD YOUR CITIES CENTERING AROUND THE HUMAN GOOD,
 AND NOT THE SHRINES YOU THROW IN MY FACE.

BRIDGE: IF I WERE GOD, I’D SAY I’VE DONE ALL I’LL EVER DO
 I’D SAY THE WORK THAT’S LEFT UNDONE IS STRICTLY UP TO YOU.

            # 09           ALL GONE

 
1) LITTLE SHOES THAT NE’ER A FOOT ADORN,
 LITTLE PANTS AND DRESSES NEVER WORN, 
 A NATION OF OUR KINSMEN NEVER BORN,
 SIXTY MILLION NOW AND NONE TO MOURN.

CHORUS: A BILLION DESTINIES, A SINGLE TRAGIC FATE, 
 ALL GONE WITH CRUEL STROKES OF STERILE KNIVES.
 HOW HEARTLESS MUST WE BE, HOW DEEP THE BURNING HATE,
 FOR THOSE OF US DESPISING HUMAN LIVES? 

2) TINY FEET THAT NEVER STEPPED ON WARM AND FRIENDLY SAND,
 TINY FINGERS BARRED FROM EVER HOLDING,
 TINY EYES  THAT ONLY SAW ONE MASKED AND CALLOUSED  HAND,
 INTRUDING TO ABORT A DESTINY UNFOLDING…  INTRUDING TO ABORT A DESTINY.

BRIDGE: WHAT RIGHT HAVE WE TO THWART A BILLION DESTINIES?

 WHAT SELF-IMPORTANT RATIONALIZATION,
 TO THINK THAT WE CAN INTERFERE AND REST IN EASE?
 WHILE CUTTING OUT THE FUTURE OF A NATION.

3) AND WHAT ABOUT DESTROYING ALL THE PROGENY,
 THE GENERATIONS FOLLOWING EACH ONE?
 ITS A PONDERING THAT MUST BE DONE IN AGONY.
 ALL GONE. ALL GONE. ALL GONE  ALL GONE, ALL GONE, ALL GONE

CHORUS:

ENDING: MMMMM - MMMM - MMMM - MMMM         ALL GONE  ALL GONE    ALL GONE!

            #10          STILL YOUR AMERICA

                       

1) THEY SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE IT. THEY SHOULDN’T AT ALL.
 TO LIE AND DISTORT THE AMERICAN VISION,
 THAT SOMEHOW THE WORLD OWE’S A DEBT TO US ALL,
 THAT AMERICA’S DREAM SHOULD BE HELD IN DERISION.

CHORUS: OH ITS STILL YOUR AMERICA….    DON’T BE AFRAID,
 ITS YOUR LAND BUT YOU MUST DECIDE.
 IT’S A HOME THAT DEMANDS THAT ALLEGIENCE BE PAID
 WTH A PLEDGE TO A FLAG, DONE IN PRIDE.

2)  THE LIES THEY TOLD  WILL ONLY HURT YOU,
 IF YOU CLING TO THAT ANGER AND HATE, GAVE PROOF/ THROUGH THE NIGHT THAT
 BUT AMERICA’S DREAMS CAN ALL COME TRUE, OUR FLAG WAS STILL THERE…
 WHEN YOU HOPE, ASPIRE, AND CREATE.   OH SAY/ CAN YOU SEE… (WITH INSTRUMENTAL)

3) IT’S THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE LAND OF LAWS,
 WHERE BEAUTY IN LIFE IS EARNED BY WORK,
 WHERE EVERYONE MAKES THE BEST OF OUR FLAWS,
 WHERE DUTY IS SOMETHING WE WELCOME, NOT SHIRK.

BRIDGE:  BUT ITS YOUR LAND TOO, AND ALWAYS WILL BE,
 SOME DIED FOR YOU, SO YOU’D HAVE A PLACE.
 TO LIVE AND WORK AND BE PROUD TO BE FREE.
 IN A HOME YOU CAN BUILD AND A LAND TO EMBRACE.

4) YOURS IS THE LAND OF HOPES AND DREAMS
 WHERE PEACE  STILL HAS A CHANCE,
 AMERICA’S  CLOSE TO HEAVEN IT SEEMS,
 WHEN WE TAKE THE AMERICAN STANCE.


CHORUS:


ENDING: ITS STILL YOUR AMERICA,      DON’T      BE     AFRAID
 ITS YOUR LAND, BUT  YOU MUST DECIDE
 ITS YOUR LAND BUT YOU MUST DECIDE.

                  # 11            RAINSHINE


1) NOTHIN’ BETTER THAN SUNSHINE TO CHASE THE BLUES AWAY.
 IT WARMS THE SOUL, BRIGHTENS HEARTS, AND LIGHTENS UP THE DAY.
 NOTHING BETTER THAN RAINDROPS TO COOL THE SUMMER SIZZLE.
 AND WHAT COULD BE MORE JOYFUL THAN STROLLING IN A DRIZZLE?

2) AND FOR REASONS NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT, THAT NO ONE CAN EXPLAIN,
 WE ALWAYS SEPARATE THE TWO, THE SUNSHINE AND THE RAIN.
 LIKE OPPOSITES WE SEE THEM, LIKE WOMEN AND LIKE MEN,
 WE NEVER THINK COMPATIBLE, NOW NEAR, NOW FAR AGAIN.

 3) BUT THERES A SPECIAL MOMENT THAT NO ONE CAN DENY,
 WHEN AFTER RAIN THE SUN COMES OUT AND BRIGHTENS UP THE SKY.
 WHEN EVERY LIVING GREEN THING BECOMES A SOURCE OF LIGHT,
 AND EVERY PLACE WE REST OUR EYES IS TWINKLING AND BRIGHT. 

 4) NOTHIN’ BETTER THAN, RAINSHINE, NEVER MORE DIVINE OR NICE,
 WHEN SUN AND RAIN ON CRYSTAL FLOORS CREATE A PARADISE.
 WHERE TREES AND FORESTS TO OUR HEART SING HAPPY, SECRET SONGS,
 WHEN SUDDENLY WE FIND THE PLACE WHERE EVERY LIVING THING BELONGS.

 5) OH NO, ITS NOT THE SEPARATE THINGS THAT MAKE OUR WORLD GO ROUND,
 ITS THINGS COMBINED THAT HEGHTEN, MYSTIFY, ASTOUND.
 THERE ARE NO BRILLIAINT MOMENTS GREATER THAN THE TIMES,
 THAN SUN AND RAIN IN HARMONY CREATING EARTH’S RAINSHINE.

ENDING: THAN SUN AND RAIN IN HARMONY, CREATING EARTH’S RAINSHINE.

          #12          THE DEVIL OFF CAPE HORN

    
1) THEY SAY THE DEVIL PULLS THEM DOWN…
 TEN THOUSAND NOW WE MOURN…
 HE CULLS THE SHIPS THAT SAIL AROUND…
 THE WATERS  OFF CAPE HORN.

2) THE WAVES ARE STEEP LIKE MOUNTAIN CLIFFS,
 AND SHIPS SAIL ON THE VERGE,
 OF PLUNGING TO THE GREAT ABYSS,
 OR  SCRAPING PAST THE DEVIL‘S PURGE..

CHORUS: SOME CALL THAT DEVIL “DAVY JONES”
 HELL’S LOCKER IS THE CAPE,
 A WASTELAND STREWN WITH SAILOR’S BONES,
 AND HULLS OF SHIPS DENIED ESCAPE.
   
3) TO ROUND THE HORN IS SUICIDE,
 FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW THE STRAIGHTS,
 IN SATAN’S REALM THEIR SHIPS COLLIDE,
 WITH SAILORS DREAMS, AND SAILOR’S FATES.

BRIDGE: THE  BRUTAL  STORMS THEY RIDE,
 BELOW THE DECKS IN DARKENED CAVES,
 SEASICK, IN FEAR, THEY WAIT AND HIDE,
 WHERE NOW THEY LIVE, COULD BE THEIR GRAVES.
 COULD BE THEIR GRAVES

                      # 13            REACHING OUT 


1) THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO REACH BEYOND AND TOUCH WHAT’S AFAR.
 EXPLORERS HAVE THEIR SPACE SHIPS SO THEY CAN TOUCH A STAR.
 THE FISHER HAS HIS HOOK AND LINE, THE HUNTER HAS HIS GUN.
 THE WRITER HAS HIS PEN AND MAIL, THE CALLER HAS HIS PHONE.

CHORUS: 
 MAGINING, IMAGINING, IMAGINING WE FEEL,
 REALITIES THAT CAN NOT BE, OR DREAMS THAT ARE NOT REAL,
 WHEN SOMETHING IN US BURNS LIKE WORDS WHICH CANNOT BE EXPRESSED,
 THEN WE HAVE REACHED THE GREAT FRONTIER WHERE REACHING OUT IS BEST.

2) BUT THERE’S A POINT ON EVERY ROAD WHERE WE CAN NEVER PASS,
 EVERY VOYAGE HAS A BOUNDARY, EVERY LIFE MUST BREATHE ITS LAST.
 ONE THING AND ONE ALONE IS WITHOUT NATURAL LIMIT,
 ITS THE FEELING WORDS CAN NOT EXPRESS AND THE ARDOR BURNING IN IT.

 

 BRIDGE:

 WHEN SOMETHING IN US LONGS TO REACH WHAT NOTHING CAN ATTAIN.
 THERE IS NO CURE PREVENTING US FROM REACHING OUT IN VAIN.
 WHEN PASSIONS OR EMOTIONS OVERSPILL OUR MEAGER STRENGTHS,
 THE DEEPEST LONGING IN US REACHES GREATER LENGTHS.

                  # 14              FEEDING ON FRIENDS


CHORUS: FEEDING ON FRIENDS, FEEDING ON FRIENDS,
 THERE MUST BE BETTER MEANS, THERE MUST BE BETTER ENDS?
 IF WE GO AROUND MAKING FRIENDS, JUST SO WE CAN FEED,
 CAN THERE EVER BE TRUE FRIENDS, TRUE FRIENDS, TRUE FRIENDS INDEED?

1) IN HIGH SCHOOL, IF YOUR PARENTS WERE WELL-TO-DO AND RICH,
 THEY TAUGHT YOU RICH AND POOR, THEY TAUGHT YOU WHICH WAS WHICH,
 THEY TAUGHT YOU WHO YOUR FRIENDS SHOULD BE WHO WAS WELL-EMPLOYED
 THEY TAUGHT YOU WHO TO FEED UPON, AND WHO YOU COULD AVOID.

CHORUS:

2) BY COLLEGE YOU WERE CAPABLE OF JUDGING FOR YOURSELF.
 WHICH SIDE OF THE TRACKS TO SPEND YOUR TIME, HOW TO HANG WITH WEALTH,
 YOU KNEW THAT IN FOUR YEARS OR SO, THE ONES WHO WERE ADMIRED,
 SHOULD BE THE FRIENDS YOU CULTIVATE, THE FRIENDS YOU HAD ACQUIRED.

CHORUS:

3) THE BUSINESS WORLD IS LITTLE MORE THAN FEEDING ON YOUR FRIENDS,
 WHATEVER SERVICE YOU PROVIDE,  FOR MONETARY ENDS,
 ITS NOT ABOUT BEING SATISFIED, SELF RESPECT, OR PRIDE,
 ITS TAKING NIBBLES SMALL AND LARGE FROM YOUR BEST FRIEND'S HIDE.

                       #15            LOVE’S SECRET


1) SOMEWHERE IN THE DISTANT PAST, A FANTASY WAS BORN,
 OF LOVE, THE SHOOTING STAR,  THAT DAZZLES US WHO WAIT.
 THE WAITING CAN CONSUME US SO THAT ALL WE DO IS YEARN,
 AND NEVER LEARN LOVE’S SECRET TIL ITS FAR TOO LATE.

2) WE THINK OF LOVE AS LIGHTENING BOLTS AND STARS THAT CROSS THE SKY,
 THAT STRIKE US TO FULFILL OUR VERY BEING,
 BUT SEARCHING FOR AND LONGING FOR MAY NEVER SATISFY,
 THAT LOVE WE SEEK AND GROW OLD NEVER SEEING.

CHORUS: LOVE’S SECRET IS TO LOVE YOURSELF, LOVE TO LOVE, AND LOVE TO LIVE.
 LET ALL THE LOVE AND LIFE YOU HAVE BE ALL THE LOVE YOU GIVE.
 ONLY THEN WILL OTHERS SEE A LOVELINESS THAT’S REAL,
 AND BE SET FREE TO LOVE YOU WITH THE KIND OF LOVE YOU FEEL.

3) WHAT WE NEVER REALIZE, IN OUR ETERNAL WATCH,
 TO FIND A SHOOTING STAR THAT WE MIGHT CATCH,
 IS THAT HEAVEN OVERFLOWS WITH STARS THAT ANYONE CAN TOUCH,
 AND EVERY STAR CAN BE A PERFECT MATCH.

BRIDGE:  IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR LOVE’S SECRET, WELL HERE IT IS IN BRIIEF,
 REACH OUT TO MAKE A SINGLE STAR THE SOUL MATE OF YOUR LIFE.
