about

After recording 'TAKE A CHANCE'(2013) in Long Island NY with acclaimed producers Steven Haigler and Mike Watts, we decided to take that amazing learning experience and apply it to this new batch of songs with a slightly different approach. We wanted to really craft these songs and hold nothing back both instrumentally and vocally. As we narrowed down the list we found 7 songs that could be recorded and represented the way they were truly meant to be. We were able to expand our creativity and focus on the arrangements by adding certain instrumentation and vocal backing we had previously not used before. Being friends for 25 plus years, you grow, learn, and experience many things together. "LIFE: A Beautiful Key Change" represents that for us, not just as musicians and friends, but as people on this earth. We hope you enjoy this album as much as we enjoyed making it for you. Thanks for listening!

Track Name: Beautiful
Little darlin, what's that rolling down your shoulder?
Little darlin, there's nothin wrong with growing older
It's just a simple thing called time
You shouldn't worry you'll be fine
and I wanted you to know

That you are one in a million
You are second to none
I will give you what you need
I'll give you what you want
and if there's a day
When you have second thoughts
I will tell you what you are
What you are is beautiful

Move in closer
Let me whisper in your ear
I've got a secret I can't keep it
You’re the one to tell
No I cant hold it, I wanna know if,
If you will be mine?
Ohh yeahhhh

You are one in a million
You are second to none
I will give you what you need
I'll give you what you want
and if there's a day
When you have second thoughts
I will tell you what you are
What you are is beautiful
Track Name: Wrong Situation (Part Deux)
Didn't meet her at grocery store
Clock is ticking and the times they keep on changing
She showed me things I've never seen before
I found the person I was searching for
What happened? What's happening?

Guess I never had a handle on her
Wrong time, wrong place, wrong situation
Never really had a handle on her
Wrong time, wrong place, wrong situation

If inspirations what I'm looking for
What's the problem where's the answer that I'm seeking?
You made me always want to strive for more
Keep on truckin' never shut the door
Don't worry I'm waiting here

Guess I never had a handle on her
wrong time wrong place wrong situation
Never really had a handle on her
wrong time, wrong place, wrong situation

Didn't meet her at a grocery store
No No!
Didn't find what I was looking for
No No!
Can you tell me, can you tell me why I'm still waiting here?

Guess I never had a handle on her
Wrong time wrong place wrong situation
Never really had a handle on her
Wrong time, wrong place, wrong situation
Track Name: Big Kid Song
Let me tell you about this dude I know
He's pretty big and he runs real slow
He's been known to break a bone
Here's a story about him being overthrown

It was a warm clear summer night
On a skateboard down Lumina Drive
Headlights flashing
Blinds his eyes
He thought he saw it but he had no time
A yellow bullet in the form of his doom
The taxi swerved but there wasn't no room
If only she had been there on that warm summer night
The guardian angel for the rest of his life

So what would you say if I told you that he loves you?
And what would you say if I told you you're the one?
It's not everyday that you find someone to love
Finding a gift so rare is nothing to run from

How it started you really must know
She saw him rockin' at a Love Language show
Then she said "I wanna play the guitar"
Play a tune or two like a star
Six little strings have brought them this far
But nothing compares to this tip in his jar
If only she had been there on that warm summer night
The guardian angel for the rest of his life

So what would you say if I told you that he loves you?
And what would you say if I told you you're the one?
It's not everyday that you find someone to love
Finding a gift so rare is nothing to run from

There's nothing to run from there's nothing to run from
You found the one yeah she's the one
There's nothing to run from there's nothing to run from
You found the one yeah she's the one
There's nothing to run from there's nothing to run from
You found the one yeah she's the one
There's nothing to run from there's nothing to run from
You found the one yeah she's the one
You found the one yeah she's the one
You found the one yeah she's the one!

So what would you say if I told you that he loves you?
And what would you say if I told you you're the one?
It's not everyday that you find someone to love
Finding a gift so rare is nothing to run from
Track Name: Dallas
Up in the air looking down
All I see is a sea of clouds
When any day could be my last
I won't dare think of the past

Now I'm moving away
Out of your life
Back to my home town

I wanna go back, back, to Dallas
I wanna go back, back, to Dallas
Is it better there?
It’s bigger for sure
I’m not scared I’ve been there before
Back, back, to Dallas

I'm on a plane up in the sky
Destination unknown I'm free when I fly
Somewhere near or far away
I don't care I'm not here today

Now I'm moving away
Out of your life
Back to my hometown

I wanna go back, back, to Dallas
I wanna go back, back, to Dallas
Is it better there?
It’s bigger for sure
I’m not scared I’ve been there before
Is it better there?
It’s bigger for sure
I’m not scared I’ve been there before
Back, back, to Dallas

Take me there
I gotta go
I need to go now!

Back, back, to Dallas
I wanna go back, back, to Dallas!

It's better there
It’s bigger for sure
I’m not scared I’ve been there before
Is it better there?
Bigger for sure
I’m not scared I’ve been there before
Back, back, to Dallas
I'm gonna go back, back, to Dallas

Take me there
I gotta go
I need to go now!
Track Name: Roller Coaster
Summer's almost over dear
And I'm thinkin I need you here
It better not be too long before I see you again

it may still be hot outside
The sun's shining far and wide
But its a little bit colder here
On the south side of town
When you're not around

I wanna ride a roller coaster with you
Go out to dinner and stare at the moon
Give me a couple of hours
I'll be there for days and days

Pour me out a glass of wine
Make it red and I'll be fine
Are you a little bit lonely as day turns to night?
It doesn't really matter what you wear
All I need is your strawberry hair
I know it won't be too long until I see you again
Until I see you again

I wanna ride a roller coaster with you
Go out to dinner and stare at the moon
Give me a couple of hours
I'll be there for days and days
I'm gonna get me some new roller blades
I'll hold your hand and we can skate for days
I know it won't be too long before I see you again
I wanna see you again

I wanna ride a roller coaster with you
Go out to dinner and stare at the moon
Give me a couple of hours
I'll be there for days and days
I'm gonna get me some new roller blades
I'll hold your hand and we can skate for days
I know it won't be too long before I see you again
I wanna see you again
I need to see you again
Track Name: Taking My Time
I'm taking my time
I'm taking my time

Many a night
I cry to Samantha will this end alright?
Many a night
Lonely like a child just shaking with fright

And please don't go
Just keep me afloat
And you will know
When it's cold I’ll be your coat
It’s just a show
Don't let it sink our boat
And I promise I wont let you down

I'm taking my time
Rolling down a river in the city of life
I'm takin my time
Looking past tomorrow for a glimpse of the light
And many a night
I cry to samantha will this end alright?
Many a night
Lonely like a child just shaking with fright

And please don't go
Just keep me afloat
And you will know
When it's cold I’ll be your coat
It’s just a show
Don't let it sink our boat
And I promise I wont let you down
And I promise I'll never let you down

I'm taking my time
I'm taking my time

And many a night
I cry to Samantha will this end alright?
Lonely like a child just shaking with fright
Rolling down the river in the city of LIFE.
Track Name: Happy In Love
I feel happy today
Nothing but good news coming my way
I feel happy today
The sun is shining away
Not a cloud in the sky
It ain't gonna rain
I feel happy today

Just say that you love me
And tell me you care
I'll return the favorand always be there

I'm in love with you
Yes Im in love
And I know that you feel it too
My heart start a racing
Flying out of my chest it’s crazy
Yes I'm in love with you
