Baby Blues 03:53
BABY BLUES Pick up the storyline we know it like the back of our hands Another day is young and you get it on by workin' on plans The song of our youth remains and growing pains don’t happen by chance A band is marching past and movin’ fast, their voices enhanced Now you hear it whenever you want it yeah the beat is loud, but anyhow they are singin’ out and hummin’ a tune CHORUS Of our baby blues, baby blues ( 2 x ) Down on Market Street where the marquee reads “the balcony is closed” Behind a velvet rope many wait and hope for an 8 p.m. show None of the lights are lit the ticket taker sits in faux repose Them ol’ rusted out cans are open now and the film exposed Now you see it whenever you want it Lookin' back in time you might find the storyline will tell you the truth CHORUS SOLO CHORUS (copyright 2020.

SECOND TO LAST Well the rings around the earth were still then the gravity took hold The grain ran through the roller mill The straw spun into gold Every line that streaks a weathered cheek Holds a tale yet to be told These are folk but this ain’t lore things like these have come before CHORUS It’s a momentary flash that has only got a second to last a present perfect then it’s past and it’s only got a second to last Yeah, what formed in stone through every age is a shadow cast in light like the moving type that strikes the page in vivid black and white a document saved, a flag is waved a win without a fight Folded paper, triple score things like these have come before CHORUS BRIDGE Those who wait in line will try to place a hand upon the throne while the runner dares to win the race Not on wheels but on will alone CHORUS (copyright 2020. Words and music by Reno Bo)

Take Cover 03:41
TAKE COVER I can tell by your racing heart a little lightning will make you shudder If you’re out when the thunder starts come on in, baby, and take cover Maybe you want a hiding place when you don’t wanna be discovered I will shelter you from the rain come on in, baby, and take cover (interlude) I know sometimes you look around and this ol’ world seems a little bit rougher well, I will build on a higher ground so come on in, baby, and take cover Your own warm safe place Where a harbor awaits in the holy embrace of lovers Make the world go away No more news of the day the only words left to say are for each other From a window we see the storm We both know there are gonna be others until then let me keep you warm come on in, baby, and take cover (SOLO) Your own warm safe place Where a harbor awaits in the holy embrace of lovers No more news of the day When the world just goes away we’ll just be an anchor for one another Maybe sometimes you look around and this ol’ world seems a little bit rougher well, I will build on a higher ground so come on in, baby, and take cover Uh-huh / Ah yeah / Uh-huh / Ah yeah (copyright 2018. Words and music by xxx/ Reno Bo)

Even A Stone 03:57
EVEN A STONE Bought a little residential parcel on the water Right next door to a temperamental neighbor barking orders Fool yourself again and again while they run the meter Had enough of playin’ nice now take me to your leader CHORUS And we all have to hurry As the sound of voices fill the air But we don’t have to worry Even a stone will cry out Higher call than what befalls the ceremony swagger The typical pedestrian devoted Dolly Dagger Rules of thumb are tools for some and trigger back pull flashes. Have we come this far to light the way then burn the ashes? CHORUS SOLO CHORUS And we all have to hurry As the sound of voices fill the air But we don’t have to worry Even a stone Even a stone Even a stone will cry out (copyright 2020. Words and music by Reno Bo)

Old Glories 03:04
OLD GLORIES After the boom comes a hush A suddenly silent room Countin’ up speckles and dust havin’ once lassoed the moon Should look ahead / yeah but instead I’m sittin’ round thinkin’ bout all my old glories again Wandered away from the flock can’t even call it a sin along the way doors were unlocked but I never tried to walk in Should take a chance / make a new plan But I’m sittin’ round thinkin’ bout all my old glories again Survey the land / take it all in sittin’ round thinkin’ bout all my old glories again INTERLUDE Heard it once said "it’s the bold fortune does favor," it’s true but for now, gravity’s hold is the only thing pulling me through Sayin’ I wish / instead of Amen yeah and sittin’ round thinkin’ bout all my old glories again (copyright 2018 Words and music by Reno Bo)

TIME AGAIN TOMORROW Falling leaves pass your window what are the colors you see? thinking as slow as the wind blows wondering where you will be CHORUS This time again tomorrow All of the movement your making time moving under your feet each of the steps you are taking leads back to where we will meet CHORUS This time again tomorrow This time again tomorrow SOLO Both hands on a bottle of lightning between the bolt and the ground a flash of a moment arriving or will it all come around CHORUS This time again tomorrow This time again tomorrow (copyright 2020. Words and music by Reno Bo)

YOU CAN SEE IT ALL FROM HERE The track that led a mighty train a broken link within the chain An inkless pen inside a drawer a bottled message washed ashore The rookie’s bunted broken bat a newly woven welcome mat The winded boxer at the bell pennies in a wishing well CHORUS You can see it all from here You can see it all from here The helmet worn behind the shield A barefoot child in the field A dewdrop in a blade of grass a topographic cul-de-sac A suit of armor and of tweed The neon and the tumbleweed A written message on a wall The hidden story of us all CHORUS ( SOLO - INTERLUDE ) The pendant’s hidden photograph A patch of sunlight on your path The revel in your lover’s eyes They’re puttin’ on a show tonight The salvage and the souvenir The valor and the volunteers The discovered and the disappeared You can see it all from here CHORUS (2X)
