Track Name: When Love Speaks (featuring Lucy Woodward, Bennett Paster)
Music by Joshua Shneider
Lyric by Joshua Shneider and Finian McKean

1. when love speaks
in a voice
you've never heard before
like a valentine
across the schoolyard fence
words have no meaning
when love is speaking

2. when love's real
you can hear it
in a smile, in a sigh
rainy afternoon
when the new leaves blow
leave something unsaid
Oh, that feeling again
when love is speaking
words have no meaning

3. when love breathes
we don't need nothin
but a heart and a hand
far from my side
still you understand
something left unsaid
I think it's that feeling again

REFRAIN OUT:
words have no meaning
when love is speaking
across a crowded room
I hear love speaking
love is a feeling
love is a feeling
listen love's speaking
when love is speaking
when love speaks
Track Name: Lost In The Stars (featuring Lucy Woodward, Alex Norris)
Lost in the Stars

Lyric by Maxwell Anderson, Music by Kurt Weill

Before Lord God made the sea and the land
He held all the stars in the palm of his hand
And they ran through his fingers like grains of sand,
and one little star fell alone.

Then the Lord God hunted through the wide night air
for the little dark star on the wind down there
And He stated and promised he'd take special care
so it wouldn't get lost again

Now a man don't mind if the stars grow dim
and the clouds blow over and darken him
so long as the Lord God's watching over him
keeping track how it all goes on

But I've been walking through the night and the day
till my eyes get weary and my head turns gray
and sometimes it seems maybe God's gone away
forgetting the promise that we heard Him say
And we're lost out here in the stars
Little stars, big stars, blowing through the night
And we're lost out here in the stars
Little stars, big stars, blowing through the night
and we're lost out here in the stars

Now a man don't mind if the stars grow dim
and the clouds blow over and darken him
so long as the Lord God's watching over him
keeping track how it all goes on

But I've been walking through the night and the day
till my eyes get weary and my head turns gray
and sometimes it seems maybe God's gone away
forgetting the promise that we heard Him say
And we're lost out here in the stars
Little stars, big stars, blowing through the night
and we're lost out here in the stars
Track Name: The Hurting Kind (featuring Lucy Woodward)
The Hurting Kind

Music by Joshua Shneider,
Lyric by Joshua Shneider and Finian McKean

Tell me that we're not the hurting kind before you go
(we'll) leave this on the pavement/ the sun sinks so low
(cause) You and I, we always knew the day would come along
She'd get tired of waiting and I'd find you gone

(chorus):
Say it doesn't hurt
these words like knives
tell me they don't cut you
just pretend tonight
we're not the hurting kind

This is just the day to walk away into the sun
noon's alive with wildlife / we all like our fun
tell me what we learned/ what we burned our hearts to see
let's just say we're fine now/ we'll act naturally

(repeat chorus)

Can’t you see me cry
Don’t you know that I’m
the one you need
Every time you touch me
I bleed

(instrumental)

Say it doesn't hurt
these words like knives
tell me they don't cut you
just pretend tonight
we're not the hurting kind
Track Name: Cute Little Nightmare (featuring Lucy Woodward and Dave Stryker))
Cute Little Nightmare
words and music by Joshua Shneider

1) You should be in pictures
With your name up everywhere
Baby, You should be in pictures
With your name up everywhere
They could put you in a movie
and call it cute little nightmare

2 ) When they see you passing
People shake their heads and stare
People see you passing
And they shake their heads and stare
Cause they've never seen nothin'
Like my cute little nightmare

chorus) Cute Little Nightmare
Cute Little Nightmare
Cute Little Nightmare
Cute Little Nightmare
I can't get you out of my hair
Cute Little Nightmare

3) You're a big box of heartache
Labeled handle with care
You're a big box of heartache
Labeled handle with care
But you're my kind of trouble
You're my cute little nightmare

4) Your clothes are a mess
you're a jaywalker
you're always late
you're a close talker
You tell bad jokes
can't stand my cookin'
when I turn around
you're always lookin'
you can't dance
but to be fair
You're a cute little nightmare

chorus) Cute Little Nightmare
Cute Little Nightmare
Cute Little Nightmare
Cute Little Nightmare
I can't get you out of my hair
Cute Little Nightmare
