Track Name: Nothing Said
What good is a wish if you won’t toss the coin?
What good is hope if you don’t believe in it?
How you gonna stand if you don’t think you can?
Where will you go if you never take a chance?

Well you know you gotta...
Look for the light within the dark
Morning is coming it’s gonna be alright
Blue skies or grey sunshine or rain
Breathe in the air it’s gonna be okay
If you want to make change make up your mind
You know nothing said won’t be worth a dime

RPT Chorus

Hear your heart’s words open your mind
The truth will come to you in time
Lay down fear and let it go
There are answers you may never know

What good is a gift without sharing it?
What good is passion if you hold it inside?
How will you know if you don’t follow through?
You are the only one who makes it happen now

RPT Chorus
Track Name: Hollywood Lady
She is painted perfection
With platinum blonde hair
Under palms in a rental Mercedes
She’s really going nowhere

She's a Hollywood lady

Caught in a web of illusion
Lost in a neon freeway confusion
The fast lane leads to glittering dreams
Chasing forever, yet no closer it seems

She's a Hollywood Lady

Bridge w/ Solo

At a four way stop she lingers
A choice at the tip of her fingers
A left turn may not be right
she must choose tonight...

She’s a Hollywood Lady

Buying her image on Rodeo drive
Hollywood lady won't stand aside
Sunset strip took her for a ride
But I hope she'll find the woman inside

She’s a Hollywood Lady
Track Name: I'm Just an Angel
Thought I was a kind man
Turned out I was cruel
Thought I was a genius
Until I flunked out of school
Thought I could drink whiskey
Until the morning I feel sick
Thought I was doing fine
But now i'm in a fix

I'm just an angel
Devils in my soul
Found a bag of pyrite
Thought that it was gold
Put it in my pocket
But it fell out on the road
Trying to find silver
In a mine that’s full of coal

Thought I could see straight
Now I know Im blind
Swear I spoke the truth
Turned out I'm a liar
Seem my happiest
When other people cry
Feeling as right as rain
But am I really dying?


Freezing in the rain
or cooking in the sun
You say i’m tortured
but i'm just having fun
Always out ‘till last call
Drinking at the bar
You said success is close
Nothing seems so far

Track Name: Shake the Booze
Woke up this morning, lord I had it bad
Didn’t remember much past 2 am
I heard the little cricket say, you shouldn’t be out anyway

Every time I ride that train I lose
I gotta shake shake shake the booze

Woke up looking for a little hair of the dog
750 whiskey left me in a fog
So I jumped into my car and that’s when things got bad, real bad I said...

Every time I ride that train I lose
I gotta shake shake shake the booze

I woke up shaking with the cops rolling up behind
I got all damn drunk and nearly lost my mind
So I sat back and I said take me away to jail...you know

Every time I ride that train I lose
I gotta shake shake shake the booze
But I wanna dive into a bottle or two
I gotta shake shake shake the booze
Track Name: East of the Ocean
I was born a dreamer with my head up in the clouds
Like the next days were not up to me...no no
In the time of my life, I imagined what I might be
But the future was only a dream...a dream

It could have been sweeter I know
But this child would soon learn to grow
Making my own way in life, I know I have
Spent life losing ground, now I’ve finally won

East of the ocean, west of the sky
Where the cool ocean breeze and the warm sun collide.
Calm bay waters meet the tumbling tide

I feel like I’ve finally arrived

So many choices / right, wrong or just the right time
All these decisions have led me here
Farther than I realized even though I thought I knew it all
I came to find that I knew nothing at all

One day I will find my home
Though I’ll rise and fall like the tides
The currents won’t drag me below
Stand up on the wave again, in the California sun

East of the ocean, West of the sky
Where the cool ocean breeze and the warm sun collide
Rivers come home and the hills run beside
I feel like I’ve finally arrived

East of the ocean
West of the sky
Track Name: San Andreas
I can see the smoke from here Your message it was crystal clear. Oh tonight up on San Andreas
I can see the lights for miles If only for a little while
Every night up on San Andreas

We sat atop this lonely hill The place we could not get our fill. Every night up on San Andreas
I had to swallow my pride Even when my living soul had died. Oh that night up on San Andreas

We went walking in the cold sunlight A dark day but a much darker night. That is why I left you on San Andreas
But now I’ve come to know why We could never touch the sky. Since that one night up on San Andreas

Thinking back on my favorite times A distant dream comes to mind. In these last hours on San Andreas
Everything that begins must end So I’ll just say goodbye my friend. The last night up on San Andreas
Track Name: Dream I Know
Dream I Know

I think inside a dream I live only know what I want to give. I watch the phrases flow allowing the sweet song to grow

Sifting through the melodies swimming in my soul
Sounding out the harmony to fill this dream I hold

I look outside today, the pages around me lay
Scattered across the floor, now I only wish for more

Drift into my reverie as I sit alone
Reaching for inspiration, I set my fear aside

This love I have, is the music that I find
The only thing I have that is true and kind
The labor of my heart and the vision of my soul
This love I have is the music...

Outside the rain pours down, my voice the only sound
Thoughts stray across my mind while I sing the words in time

Soaring into, skies of blue deep in my mind
Listening to all the music flow into this dream I know

This love I have, is the music that I find
The only thing I have that is true and kind
The labor of my heart and the vision of my soul
This love I have is the music...
That I find...
That is mine...
Track Name: Land of Endless Summer
Land of Endless Summer

In the land of endless summer
There's always a cool breeze,
where you know your skin can burn
and you know your soul can freeze
Now I dream of Sandy beaches,
surfing waves out in the sea.
But all the cars and the mansions
are all surrounding me
A veil hangs on California,
like my phone with a broken screen
She was here but she left it,
she went and left the scene

For the land of endless summer, Where we all wanna be.
I see seabirds and coral underneath the deep blue sea.
In the land of endless summer, is it truth or fantasy?
I see seabirds and coral underneath the deep blue sea

Oh my dear we are mistaken
We can't solve our pain with greed
We won't need it all tomorrow,
No we won't have no need
My friends told me bout a valley,
in the bottom there’s a cave...
Where they've hidden all the secrets
and the books of yesterday
Like a fool I went with them
although I knew I couldn't say
I didn't want to leave them
And they’re still down there today

RPT Chorus

If you’re feeling out of place / find your inner space
Leave without a trace / put a smile on your face
Where the dragonflies are flying / the horses in the sea
and the moon dog is howling / pinch me if we're dreaming
here and now I want to be.....

RPT Chorus
