Track Name: Along the Way
Winter has come with the snow
The Autumn has left our fall in other lands
Spring soon will come and we’ll go
To greet the summer sun and feel its warmth

Like my father I have roamed
I have seen the open road
With what I’m given I will go
Along the way

Like my mother I have grown
With the seeds that I have sown
And I’ll never be alone
Along the way

Like my sisters they taught me
About the beauty in a breeze
And a laugh that never leaves
Along the way

With my brother standing here
I won’t cry out, I won't fear
I got all the love and care
Along the way
Track Name: Exile's Lament
I’m lost and gone so far away
I’ll sing this song almost everyday
I’ll search and I’ll find a way to somewhere
I need to rewind to a time when I cared

Chorus:
Again I go fate unknown
I’ll find my way back home
I won’t fear though evil’s near
I know I’m not alone
I know I’m lost now and I’m not sure how
But I’ll find the way unknown
It’s been a long time without peace of mind
no longer will I roam

The sun will rise from the east
It’s then when I lie that I begin to dream
Dreams of times that could have been
Dreams of what could be
My lights go out memories dim
Now I know I’ll soon be free

(Chorus)

We’re back home like days of old
I walk with the airs of a free man
Only to hear only to be told
There’s freedom in my homeland

(Chorus)
Track Name: Taste of Heaven
Follow me on up the mountains

I can show you what they talkin’ about
When they talkin’ ‘bout heaven 


Drench me in sand and some sunlight

I can show you what they talkin’ about
When they talkin’ ‘bout heaven

Just a little taste of heaven


Sittin’ here with the family

I can tell you know what I'm talkin’ ‘bout

When I’m talkin’ ‘bout heaven

End of the week on a Friday night

And we don't get tired of talkin’ about
Talkin’ ‘bout heaven 



Just a little taste of heaven

Bring me some rhythm and guitar strum
I can sing you what they talkin’ about
Talkin’ ‘bout heaven
Track Name: Havdalah
Smoke rising from the candles
Crushed spices filled with scent
It’s an end it’s a beginning
Last week came and last week went

Chorus:
It’s gonna be a good week
For us and them
It’s gonna be a good week
For us and the rest
It’s gonna be a good week
For success
It’s gonna be a good week
Filled with salvation

Pinkies in my pockets
My eyebrows filled with wine
Sniffed a wick no longer burning
Think I can read the signs

Turn the lights down low
Reflect the flame on my nails
Bless me please so
I will succeed and won’t fail

(Chorus)

Please at this time
Of my tranquility
Let me never falter
And feel I’ve broken free
For if that were to happen
Don’t know to whom I’d run
Everything’s your creation
Under the moon and sun
Track Name: Thank You
It’s been twenty years, this thank you is overdue
Singing laughing crying tears persevered and pulled us through
We stumble through life and our foundation gets confused
It’s been a while but your advice has proven true

Chorus:
We’ll sing a thank you from the top of our hearts
For all you stand for throughout our lives
We’ll sing a thank you from the essence of our souls
For all the love you give to our lives
We’ll be your pride, we’ll be your joy
And all the things a parent wishes for

Caught when falling down you lift us up through our youth
Instill your thoughts in my days in everything I do
Wasted time seems to caress the fallen few
Defy the flow of things and ride the path you choose
Track Name: Old Friend
Born on the same day on the same street in the same town
Two children with the same name bound to hear the same sounds
Friends thick as thieves with a friendship thick as blood
They grew up tall and they grew up strong with dreams beyond the mud

Chorus:
Hello old friend
How have you been
I hope your journey fared well from wherever it is you've been
I hope your lot is better and your conscience free of sin
And soon we’ll sing the same songs we used to sing before
Old friend
Old friend

They moved far apart but kept in touch every now and then
Both married and started families with a joy heaven sent
And every few years or so when they both came face to face
They’d greet each other with open arms and sing of the past days

(Chorus)

One day eighty years later one friend received a call
The news was not good, doctors had no hope at all
When G-d came to take one from the living to beyond
The other held his hand and sang their blessed song

Goodbye old friend
We’ll meet at the other end
I know your journey will fare well from down here where you've been
I know your lot will be better and your conscience free of sin
And soon we’ll sing the same songs we used to sing before
Old friend
Old friend
Track Name: Don't Take Away My Friends
Please
Don’t take away my friends
You can go on with no end
But don’t take away my friends

Rocks with wither hither thither
The sun will simmer, melt the shining pillar
Life’s yours to give and yours to take
We’re forced to live and these wars they make
I can smell the seconds ticking by
Right before my open eyes

Chorus:
Please
Don’t take away my friends
You can go on with no end
But don’t take away my friends

She was the mother, sister, brother
She tried to cover the fact that she suffered
Though we reminisce I find I still miss
Being called a prince, and jelly chocolates
I got family and friends
They’re my beginning and my end

(Chorus)

In excuse of existence
I refuse in my persistence
I won’t lose, I’m gonna win this
You’re confused, I’m the resistance
Faith can reshuffle its cards
Change them threats to rewards
Make the good times run by
Track Name: Judgment Day
The King has gone and left the field
The gates will soon be closed
The book of life is almost sealed
I’ll pray for what I need the most

I hope, I hope You hear what I have to say
I hope my path is clear show me the way

But I’ve been gone, I’ve since returned
While there’s time
Give me strength, I’ll persevere
Show me a sign

In a world of lies, untruths
We walk alone, aloof
We know what’s real
It’s truth we feel
Track Name: Flying Banner
He won't let your foot falter
Your Guardian does not sleep
Behold the Guardian of Israel
Neither slumbers nor sleeps

By day the sun won't harm you
Nor the moon by night
The Lord will guard you from evil
He will guard your soul

Though the rain keeps on falling
And the leaders keep on calling
But the people keep on stalling
To embrace their Father's faith

The walls keep on wailing
While the soldiers feel they're failing
And everybody's sailing
On unforgiving waves

None of that can hold me down
Sing our voices high
Gather the dispersed
And our banner will fly
Fly again

G-d is my deliverance
I'm confident and will not fear
G-d is my strength, my song
He's been a help to me
Won't forget those who sacrifice
The lands are looking red
How many candles can we light
To remember our old friends

And the rain keeps on falling
And the leaders keep on calling
But the people keep on stalling
To embrace their Father's faith

The walls keep on wailing
While the soldiers feel they're failing
And everybody's sailing
On unforgiving waves

None of that can stop me now
Sing our voices high
Gather the dispersed
And our banner will fly
Fly again
Track Name: B'rinah
Translation:
He who goes along crying, carrying the burden of seeds,
will surely return with songs of joy, carrying his sheaves.
(Psalms 126:6)
