Track Name: Hard to Say Goodbye
[HARD TO SAY GOODBYE]
Lyrics & Music by Sam Alon

[VERSE 1]
Alone Iʼm fine every single time
But I know that I am yours
Iʼm ready to leave that youʼll see
And baby Iʼm for sure

Each and every day
Wish youʼd go away

[CHORUS]
Itʼs not fair to lead you on
Feeling fake for way too long
All these lies they feel so wrong
So as I try I donʼt know why
Itʼs hard to say goodbye

[VERSE 2]
Wondʼring where I have been
I can only see so far
Turns out to be something I canʼt take
Wish that I can find my mark

Need to find a way
The right words to say

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
Time flies, time dies
Iʼll keep it there as long as
Time flies, time dies
Weʼll stay here in song

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Overcast Photograph
[OVERCAST PHOTOGRAPH]
Music & Lyrics: Sam Alon

[VERSE 1]
Reality is talking in our sleep
Though no one knows of how we sleep to dream
Then time steps out of the frame
And the colors sprout so unusually
Feel the shadows take over for now

[CHORUS]
Itʼs just an overcast photograph
Overcast photograph
Just an overcast photograph
Overcast photograph, itʼs just

[VERSE 2]
Symmetry, composition, shutter speed
Envisioning a still from make believe
Let love create a sensational visual taste inconceivable
Feel elation take over for now

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
Inspiration leads to artistic feats
Look to the past
Love is so vast
Art will last

[CHORUSx2]
Track Name: Hollywood
[HOLLYWOOD]
Music & Lyrics by: Sam Alon

[VERSE 1]
Everybody knows what the night can ring
The brew and the rise of fling
The lines and the height it brings
Will make you feel so nice
The starless sky will hide your woes
Your bright eyes definitely show
The temptress of the night unfolds
And wonʼt sleep till

[CHORUS 1]
The sun shines over Hollywood
The hopes I had and knew I would
Anxiety from broken dreams forewarned
The contrived scene and sick melody
Will keep you mute in ecstasy
Behind these blinds the lights still show
You canʼt escape tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight

[VERSE 2]
First comes traffic hazy streets
Then pass bums in waves of heat
The silhouette of mountain peaks
Will make you feel so nice
Everyone here can fake it
Knowing that they will make it
Through the stoges and through the night
They wonʼt sleep till

[CHORUS 1]

[CHORUS 2]
You wonʼt sleep till
The sun shines over Hollywood
The hopes I had and knew I would
Anxiety from broken dreams forewarned
The contrived scene and sick melody
Will keep you mute in ecstasy
Behind these blinds the lights still show
You canʼt escape
The sun shines over Hollywood
The hopes I had and knew I would
Anxiety from broken dreams forewarned
The contrived scene and sick melody
Will keep you mute in ecstasy
Behind these blinds the lights still show
You canʼt escape tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Track Name: These Tears
[THESE TEARS]
Music & Lyrics by: Sam Alon

[VERSE 1]
Why do I cry and why do I care
Why do I even bother try
Holes in my sleeve, a bird with a broken wing
These tears come flowing too soon

[VERSE 2]
The perfume bottle is now empty it seems
Thereʼs discoloration in a butterflyʼs wing
Every step i take leads to another mistake
These tears come flowing too soon

[CHORUS]
I never lied, you still made me cry
I can believe you forced me to feel
Emotions in a versatile way
Therefore, the tears come too soon

[VERSE 3]
The crooked pool cue on the table behind
Venom from abrasive words, i was blind
Investment of time, realization of your crime
These tears come flowing too soon

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
Young folks, false instincts
Experience-collecting
I really was considering it
Would think about it
I wanted it

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Danielle
[DANIELLE]
Music & Lyrics by: Sam Alon

[VERSE 1]
Every day when you wake up
You just hold your chin up high
The sun beams through
Hits your long black wavy hair
And the forest calls your name
You know you will be just fine
Your free spirit you possess
Can take you anywhere

[PRE-CHORUS 1]
So dry your tears you pretty girl
Your smile can’t always hide distress
Your daddy loves you
Even though he is a lush

[CHORUS 1]
Danielle the moon will light the stage
The stage is yours so dance away
A pirouette is all it takes
To mesmerize the trees around
Inspiring everyone you meet
So positive to every beat
Danielle you glow like stardust in the night
And make them say ‘Oh, Danielle’

[VERSE 2]
Your old soul and youthful eyes
Theatre’s where your passions lie
Body posture, sex appeal
Men can’t resist you
Magic woman cast your spell
Sing that tune you know so well
Paint a picture, read a chapter
Do what you do

[PRE-CHORUS 2]
So dry your tears now pretty girl
Your smile can’t always hide distress
Your daddy loves you
Even though he drinks too much

[CHORUS 2]
Danielle the moon will light the stage
The stage is yours so dance away
A pirouette is all it takes
To entertain the trees around
Inspiring everyone you meet
So positive to every beat
Danielle you glow like stardust in the night
And make them say ‘Oh, Danielle’

[BRIDGE]
Danielle you make my life complete
You’re the only girl I’ll ever see
As beauty not too obviously bitter sweet
You drive ‘em mad, you make them sad
You bring ‘em pain, you make them glad
Your art of never ending bedeviling

[CHORUS 1]
