Track Name: To Be Happy
To Be Happy
©Kevin Fisher/Billy Crain

If I had one wish
I would wish for two
For me and you
To be happy

With the way things are
Sometimes it gets hard
But we've come so far
To be happy

Yeah, don’t think that I’m complaining
Sometimes it keeps on raining
Oh but don’t be frightened by thunder and lightning
The sun comes out and the flowers grow
And you find you're already on the road
To be happy

If I had one prayer
To pull out of thin air
Everyone, everywhere
Would be happy

We'd hand out valentines
I'd be yours, you'd be mine
There's a place, there's a time
To be happy

CHORUS

We fuss and we fight
We can't see the light
We wake up and decide
We don’t need to be right
to be happy

CHORUS
Track Name: From This Dream
From This Dream
Kevin Fisher/Fred Wilhelm

I don't want to wake up
From this dream that I'm in
If I should wake up
I'm afraid it'll end
When I'm with you
Dreams come true
Life is full and so enthralling
I feel like I'm flying, falling
I don't want to wake up
From this dream

Lying beside you
Time standing still
Angels surrounded us
And I pray they always will
In this twilight
Holding you tight
All the world has disappeared
Everything I want is here
I don't want to wake up
From this dream

If a moment
Could be stolen
I would spend a life in prison
If each night my dream was this one
I don't want to wake up
I don't want to wake up
I don't want to wake up
From this dream

I don't want to wake up
From this dream
I don't want to wake up
Track Name: I Love You More
I Love You More
©Kevin Fisher

I love you more than thunder loves lightning
More than April love rain
More than Sunday morning choirs
Love a heavenly refrain
More than branches of the Willow
Love to flutter in the breeze
And the snows of Kilimanjaro
Would love to melt into the seas, I love you more
I love you more than faithful Romeo
Loved his star-crossed Juliet
Or James Dean and Humphrey Bogart
Loved to hold that cigarette
More than old men and lonely soldiers
Love to spend the day
Telling stories of their battles
Or the girls that got away, I love you more

I'd become a priest for you
I'd become a thief for you
I'd walk a million miles
To offer some relief to you
And just when I think I've felt it all
Fallen hard as love can fall
And searched my very soul down to its core
I love you more

I love you more than Solomon loved wisdom
More than Pharaoh loved the Nile
Or the brushes of DiVinci
Loved the Mona Lisa's smile
More than statues in the temple
Or angels stuck in glass
Would love to break the ties that bind them
And fly away at last, I love you more

I'd become a priest for you
I'd become a thief for you
I'd walk a million miles
To offer some relief to you
And just when I think I've felt it all
Fallen hard as love can fall
And searched my very soul down to its core
I love you more

Every letter of every word
Of every phrase I've ever heard
And every clever metaphor is not enough
I love you more

I'd become a priest for you
I'd become a thief for you
I'd walk a million miles
To offer some relief to you
And just when I think I've felt it all
Fallen hard as love can fall
And searched my very soul down to its core
I love you more
Track Name: Just A Train
Just A Train
©Kevin Fisher

Look at that train coming hard and fast
Into some future, out of some past
A million tons of American Dream
Busting out of some movie scene

You say that it’ll turn your life around
You pray that it’ll be glory bound
You hope, you cry, you laugh and sigh
When the damn thing simply rolls on by

But sometimes a train is just a train
A random traveler without a name
One more faceless empty stare
Racing off to who knows where
Don’t think too hard, don’t rack your brain
Sometimes a train is just a train

You can feel its thunder, hear its whistle blow
You can tell yourself you’re good to go
But not every engine can bear the weight
Of one man’s heart or another man’s fate

But sometimes a train is just a train
Rusting wheels on a western plain
A ghost machine that’s here and gone
Neither good nor bad, right or wrong
There are things in life that you can’t explain
Like sometimes a train is just a train

But if you hold on tight, somewhere down the line
You’ll be right on track, right on time

And sometimes a train is just train
That finally carries the very thing
You’ve been working for year after year
Now it’s coming, now it’s here
Just hold your ground and don’t complain
Sometimes a train is just a train
And when we’re through with life’s joy and pain
And heaven’s gate is opening
And “all aboard” the angels sing
We’ll ride on up with golden wing
But only faith, hope and love remain
Sometimes a train is just a train
Sometimes a train is just a train
Just a train
Track Name: Let's Go
Let’s Go
©Kevin Fisher

Slow down, turn around
Let’s take the scenic route
If we hurry we can take our time
I’ve had enough of this fast pace rat race
I wanna be where I can see some sky

There is a road less traveled
We can unwind and unravel
Far from the headache and hassle
There’s a way I know, let’s go
Time’s slipping by
In the wink of an eye it’s gone
Goodbye goodbye

Hey you, Bobby Sue
It’s been a year or two
Don’t you think that we should tie the knot?
We could find some oceanside chapel
We’ll say our vow to the preacher and God

We’ll spend our lives together
Live in a happy ever after
Filling our days with laugher
There’s a way I know, let’s go
Time’s slipping by
In the wink of an eye it’s gone
Goodbye goodbye

We can wait around for something to find us
Or we can hit the road

There is a road less traveled
We can unwind and unravel
Far from the headache and hassle
There’s a way I know, let’s go
Time’s slipping by
In the wink of an eye it’s gone
Goodbye goodbye
Track Name: Life Is Sweet
Life Is Sweet
©Kevin Fisher

Life is short
Incomplete
We work the field
Then lie beneath
But in the end
I still believe
Life is beautiful
Life is sweet

I’ve learned to take
The good with the bad
To make the most
Of what I have
To face the dark
Unafraid to dream
Life is beautiful
Life is sweet

Time flies by in the wink of an eye
So I go with the flow of life

Life is a battle
Bitter and hard
Prayers go unanswered
Love breaks the heart
But there is victory
Even in defeat
Long as we can love
Life is sweet
To those with ears to hear
Let me repeat
Life is beautiful
Life is sweet
Track Name: Long Slow Beautiful Dance
Long Slow Beautiful Dance
Kevin Fisher/Fred Wilhelm

Sounds like a scene from the silver screen
But I swear that’s how it was
Love doesn’t always look like a picture perfect storybook
But sometimes it does

Standing beside her the stars shined brighter
And for a moment all the world was, all the world was still
I knew we belonged together the moment my eyes met hers
And I thought nothing last forever, but maybe this one will

A deep breath and baby steps
That’s how the whole thing starts
It’s a long slow beautiful dance to the beat of a heart

The world starts to spin again, you learn things you didn’t know then
Feels like the bloom is off the rose
But you weather a few storms and you pull out a few thorns
And together the garden grows and grows

A deep breath and baby steps
That’s how the whole thing starts
It’s a long slow beautiful dance to the beat of a heart

It’s a long slow beautiful dance, my friend

Life is better than it ever was
The house is filled with so much love
It’s more than enough for two
So we’ve been thinking about having a baby
I know it sounds crazy, but it seems like the natural thing to do

A deep breath and baby steps
That’s how the whole thing starts
It’s a long slow beautiful dance to the beat of a heart
Track Name: Mashed Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes
© Kevin Fisher

Sweet potato pie and a plate of fried chicken
Collard greens, cornbread and all the fixin’s
Lemonade and sweet tea trying to make a fool out of me
Heaven knows I should be on a big fat diet
But with all this food my stomach can’t keep quiet
Temptation’s in the kitchen and look what she’s bringing out to eat

The devil is a woman with a bowl of mashed potatoes
The devil is a woman with a bowl of mashed potatoes
I should be eating cottage cheese and tomatoes
But the devil is a woman with a bowl of mashed potatoes

I try to have a salad and some plain brown rice
But there’s someone masquerading as an angel of light
Shining down buttermilk biscuits and grade A beef

The devil is a woman with a bowl of mashed potatoes
The devil is a woman with a bowl of mashed potatoes
I should be eating cottage cheese and tomatoes
But the devil is a woman with a bowl of mashed potatoes

I’ve got a hunger for the truth
But there’s one that’s stronger, and it’s for food

Homemade marmalade on fresh baked bread
Vanilla bean ice cream with thick chocolate spread
All over the top, hot and sticky as a maple tree in July

The devil is a woman with a bowl of mashed potatoes
And a table full of sweets about thirty minutes later
I should be eating cottage cheese and tomatoes
But the devil is a woman with a bowl of mashed potatoes
Track Name: Rise Up
Rise Up
©Kevin Fisher

Most of us are satisfied
With what we’ve got, our lot in life
And all that lies within our reach
Is good enough for us at least
That’s what we say
But treasures that are farther out
Or deeper in are often found
Way outside our comfort zone
So we stay inside the safe and known
Not temping fate
Most of us are well aware
That everybody falls

But a few rise up against the common place
Risk defeat, complete disgrace
Despite the odds they still embrace
The search for love, the fight of faith
For the joy, the dream, the hunt, the chase
Or just to find some breathing space
And when life slaps them in the face
And says enough’s enough
A few rise up

I found myself in situations
Held back by lack of firm foundations
I didn’t build along the road
And now I find that I am going
Where I’ve always gone
But when I look around and see
That I am not along

A few rise up against the common place
Risk defeat, complete disgrace
Despite the odds they still embrace
The search for love, the fight of faith
For the joy, the dream, the hunt, the chase
Or just to find some breathing space
And when life slaps them in the face
And says enough’s enough
A few rise up
A few rise up

Oh God I pray for strength to change
So when I reach my judgment day
The angels smile at me and say
Welcome home my son
Rise up
Rise up
Rise up
Track Name: Somewhere In Hollywood
Somewhere In Hollywood
Kevin Fisher/Stephonie Seekel

Somewhere in Hollywood
The city where the angels get their wings
The sun is shining
And the stars are like a million diamond rings
The sky is blue, a wish is always coming true
Somewhere in Hollyood

Somewhere in Hollywood
My baby shows a Mona Lisa smile
I always thought was meant for me
Until they told her she had style
A pretty face, amazing grace
Come get a place
Somewhere in Hollywood

I told her when she said goodbye
Stretch your wings and learn to fly
You never know until you try
Always hold your head up high
In return life will be good
Somewhere in Hollywood

Somewhere in Hollywood
She calls me up to say she’s doing well
She tries to make me laugh
But somehow she’s not acting like herself
She says she feels alone, there’s silence on the phone
Somewhere in Hollywood

CHORUS

Maybe I should have begged her
Baby please come home
But now she’s out there on her own
As good as gone

CHORUS

On shining streets lay shards of broken dreams
That just get trampled on, rained upon
And pushed out of the scene
Bright lights flashing at the stars
In fancy cars
Somewhere in Hollywood
Where you can find your dreams
Or lose who you are
Somewhere in Hollywood
Track Name: Tenderly
Tenderly
©Kevin Fisher

The air is cooling and the sun's going down
The day's been grueling in this dusty old town
My body's aching for what you do to me

Tender tenderly
Tender tenderly

The words are easy when the language is love
You know exactly what I'm thinking of
My heart is hungry for what you do to me

Tender tenderly
Tender tenderly

I've had lovers go up in flames
Been with others who've had no names
But God I've waited patiently
For someone who really touches me

I feel your fingers and their touch is like fire
Sensation lingers then it turns to desire
You make a motion and girl I agree

Tender tenderly
Tender tenderly
Track Name: Fifty Four Years
Fifty-Four Years
©Kevin Fisher

Fifty-four years ago when they were still young
And songs long forgotten had yet to be sung
They rushed to the alter, abandoned their fears
And fought for each other for fifty four years

And now that he holds her while she fades away
There’s nothing to offer and nothing to say
That hasn’t been said before through laughter and tears
Through living and loving her for fifty-four years

Fifty-four years ago they traded a vow
That they kept like a treasure, though heaven knows how
There must have been hard times but now it appears
That they lived in perfection for fifty-four years

And now that he holds her while she fades away
There’s nothing to offer and nothing to say
That hasn’t been said before through laughter and tears
Through living and loving her for fifty-four years

Strange how a lifetime can all come to this
Ten thousand memories and one final kiss

And now that he holds her while she fades away
There’s nothing to offer and nothing to say
That hasn’t been said before through laughter and tears
Through living and loving her for fifty-four years
How can he be losing her after fifty-four-years?
Track Name: Three Cheers
Three Cheers
©Kevin Fisher

Me and all of my high school friends
We get together now and then
There’s a few that I just can’t stand
But after a couple of beers
Everyone’s singing three cheers

One for the moment
One for history
One for the future
May it always be a mystery

Even if you look I would bet
You wouldn’t find even one regret
That none of us were the teacher’s pet
So long live regulars Joe’s
So raise your glass in a toast

One for the moment
One for history
One for the future
May it always be a mystery

Jimmy took his life just like in The Big Chill
Billy got a wife when he went to Brazil
Susie’s still as happy as she always was
Started dating Linda and that’s alright with us

So long live regulars Joe’s
So raise your glass in a toast

One for the moment
One for history
One for the future
May it always be a mystery
Track Name: Crazy Life
CRAZY LIFE
Kevin Fisher

Woke up with my tear stained pillow on the floor again
I think I had a bad dream cause I think I had a hard night
Cause you know it's been a crazy life
So I jump in the shower and it
Feels like my whole body's crying and it has been
Think I had a bad dream cause I think I had a hard night
Cause you know it's been a crazy life
But that's alright I don't feel sad
I look outside and the weather's not bad
I know these times are the best I've ever had

And I think I'm gonna be alright
And I think I'm gonna do just fine
And I think I'm gonna be ok
And I think I'm gonna make it through this crazy life
This crazy life

Old lady walking across the street, I try and help her but she pushes me away
And I think to myself she must be so scared and I think she must be so tired
From living in this crazy life
So I buy a paper for a quarter and it used to be a dime
And I read about inflation, I read about crime and how we're all just
So scared and a little bit too tired of living in this crazy life
Ya, but that's alright cause I don't feel sad
I look outside and the weather's not bad
I know these times are the best I've ever had

CHORUS

Now, I'm not trying to hide what's real
I know sometimes you get a raw deal
Life is short and time is cruel
But I can't help seeing the glass half full

So I lay my poor tired head on the pillow again
And I pray to god maybe we all sleep well, and maybe we can dream big
Cause you know it's gonna be a crazy life
Ya, but that's alright don't feel sad
Look outside the weather's not bad
Know these times are the best we've ever had

CHORUS
