Track Name: There's A Light
THERE'S A LIGHT
Reno Bo

Two children walked alone on separate roads
One lay to rest his head, the other rose

Don’t you know it’s gonna last
Don’t you know it’s gonna last

There’s a light that keeps on shining
Keeps on shining on and on

Two parties came to meet and then went on
They took to heart that we thought they were gone

Don’t you know it’s gonna last
Don’t you know it’s gonna last

There’s a light that keeps on shining
Keeps on shining on and on

Track Name: Higher Tonight
HIGHER TONIGHT
Reno Bo

She’s got what you want
Yer feelin’ alright
She’ll give you anything and she knows
That everything flows

Goin’ fast is fun
North on 101, in the city of the sun
And she glo-o-oh-oh-ows
From her feet to her nose

Chorus
Lifts me up
Feel like a million are one
Lifts me up (Alright)
Higher tonight

Somewhere down on Vine
The pie is in the sky
We’re drinkin’ wine and right in the throes
Of another late show

Chorus

Track Name: Off Your Back
OFF YOUR BACK
Reno Bo

I know the F.B.I.’s got all my fingerprints
swear that my boss has thrown
what’s left of my innocence down the drain
but who can complain?

Chorus
It’s no skin off your back
When you ain’t got nothing

My job’s taken by wires and windows
Cell phone’s got an eye
Swear that my mom knows who I call
Numbers off the bathroom wall

Chorus

Seen ads for clarity
I guess it figures
Given to charity
But still there are beggars at my door
And they don’t look poor

Chorus

Track Name: Shine
SHINE
Reno Bo

A mirror tells your story
But only through your eyes,
You see

And if you say you’re sorry
Please don’t apologize to me

You won’t let me down
And the world lights up
When you

Chorus
Shine
Like a diamond
One step closer to precious and few
Just like you

With every time that you sigh
There’s something more behind
Your eyes

And they overflow
Tell me what to do

Chorus

Track Name: Baby, You're Not Feelin' Me Tonight
BABY, YOU'RE NOT FEELIN' ME TONIGHT
Reno Bo

It’s easy to see that ours could be a tale for any age
You sat and read there silently and I was on your page

The light we made has begun to fade with no way to make amends
This candle’s got no middle now we’ve burned it from both ends

Now you and me, we’re broken wings on a bird midway in flight
And baby you’re not feeling me tonight

You’re so sweet in your company and there’s beauty in your laugh
But right now the heat of things could make a winter fold in half

We can’t get at what we used to have, it’s a treasure wrapped in chains
A sleigh of tigers drove my heart and I gave you the reins

Now I thought that we were part of me but what gave me the right
cause baby you’re not feelin me tonight_

BRIDGE
You’re not feelin’ me, you’re not feelin’ me
You’re not feelin’ me tonight

Yes, you and me are broken wings on a bird midway in flight
and baby you’re not feelin me tonight

Track Name: Sugar Suite Blues
SUGAR SUITE BLUES
Reno Bo

You’re the light of my love
You’re the sea up above
You’re the word that my heart wanna say

You’re the why and the how
You’re the here and the now
You’re the time going by in a day

You listened to your head
As it told you what to say
Oh no don’t be that way

And you’ve traveled very far
To be just who you are
But who knows how long you’ll stay?

Come on, come on
We’re takin’ off, me and you
Doot Doot do the Sugar Suite Blues

You’re the right in what’s wrong
You’re tonight all day long
You’re the only one that I want all the way

When you listen to your head
As it tells you what to say
Ah Ah don’t be that way

All the spaces in between
What we say and what me mean
They give it all away, now

Track Name: Shake Me Up
SHAKE ME UP
Reno Bo

I’m out tonight for something that real
You’ve got the fire that I wanna feel
Deliver tonight and, baby, then we got a deal

No need to be a part of the scene
There ain’t no lines to read between
We got it all and nothing is what we need

So come on now
Show me how . . .

Chorus
Shake me up
Give me something I want more of

No need to be a part of the scene
There ain’t no lines to read between
We got it all and nothing is what we need

I’m out tonight for something that real
You’ve got the fire that I wanna feel
Deliver tonight and, baby, then we got a deal

Chorus

Track Name: How Does It Feel
HOW DOES IT FEEL
Reno Bo

“How does it feel?” she said,
“when you get out of bed to check if you’re real?
How does it feel”

You get along the day
Thinking of things to say and your lips are sealed
How does it feel?
How does it feel

Tell me another time
I’ll get it right this time, let’s make a deal
How does it feel

When all is said and done
You’ll be the only one asleep at the wheel
How does It feel?

BRIDGE
How does it feel to be taken for a ride
How does it feel when nobody’s on your side
How does it feel
How does it feel

Track Name: You Don't Know
YOU DON'T KNOW
Reno Bo

All the while whenever you smile
I know what that is for

Every day that time takes away
We’re closer than before

And I couldn’t ask for more
You know it’s something I’ve never seen before
Any time you want to know
Don’t think just feel and light your soul

Chorus
You don’t know
How I know it’s you
It’s just something that I know is true

We can talk and dream about anything
It’s the little things you do
I can feel your pain and your joy just the same
And you wonder how I knew

And I couldn’t ask for more
You know it’s something I’ve never felt before
Take my hand you know I’m here
To comfort you in all your years

Chorus

Bridge
Which words shall I choose
Is there one word I can use
Letters couldn’t form a word to express my love for you

Track Name: Here Right Now
HERE RIGHT NOW
Reno Bo

I didn’t mean it, took me by surprise
You may not see it but babe, I sympathize
Neither one of us wants to feel like we’re tied down
But you’re all I got and I want you here right now

I know that one day I’ll be a vision from your past
And I ain’t asking to be the first to be the last
I don’t care if time moves on or not somehow
‘cause you’re all I got and I want you here right now

Bridge
Well, I ain’t readin’ you
And you’re never to be heard
And in that silence are the words

Neither one of us wants to feel like we’re tied down
But some things cannot be controlled
We’re in it as the story’s told
And I wish I could have you here right now

Track Name: I See Stars
I SEE STARS
Reno Bo

I see stars when I’m lookin’ into your eyes
And I just wanna stare but I know it’s gonna make me blind

You’re off somewhere in a world of a different kind
I’d like to join you there and I’m hoping that you wouldn’t mind

Countdown to blast off
The heavens open up

Chorus
and I see stars
I see stars

In a world with you all the others seem to float on by
Then everything will race through my brain and I get so high

‘cause I see stars when I’m lookin’ into your eyes
And I just wanna stare ‘cause I never seen a bluer sky

Countdown to blast off
The heavens open up

Chorus
and I see stars
I see stars
