Best Of Me 03:28
Best Of Me Music and Lyrics by Mark Lipman Baby, you love me like a lady And when I’m down and out You rock me like a baby Sometimes I think I’m going crazy ‘cause you were always around you were always around Baby, you really oughta move out here We can walk the moonlit pier With you I want to disappear Same as you I’d like to rest in peace Knowing that my destiny Is wrapped up in the best in me Yeah you got the best in me baby Don’t try to deny it, the best in me Is burning deep in your little fire And while the rest of me is satisfied In calling you a liar, the best of me knows The best of me knows Baby, I think you oughtta move out here We can walk the moonlit pier and disappear

Goodbye Copilot Music and Lyrics by Mark Lipman Hey, don’t you be afraid Don’t you be afraid, oh no Hey, don’t you know that nothing was made to stay so You’re half a world away on the inside And you’re the one to say where to take the ride And every night I pray that you know how I feel That I’m glad you’re taking your chances Goodbye Copilot The time has come I’ll miss the days beside you Out in the sun Flipping upside down Learning how to get around Oh it was such a riot with you as my copilot Hey, I’ll remember you and the way you move me Hey, nothing will remain as it was before your love to me You are sunlight on the grayest day I find it in your eyes when I’ve lost my way And don’t you be surprised when I say that I’m fine I’ll be alright Goodbye Copilot The time has come I’ll miss the days beside you Out in the sun Flipping upside down Learning how to get around Oh it was such a riot with you as my copilot

Migratory Birds Music and Lyrics by Mark Lipman You remind me of a friend I knew quite well Still captivated by your charm and captive in your spell And things have changed over the years but one thing’s been insured I’ve come to know you come and go like migratory birds I get a feeling when I look into your eyes And every word I say and hear sounds like goodbye It might as well be with all that has occurred I’ve come to know you come and go like migratory birds And maybe you’ll come back one spring You’ll have a family to bring And we can hold each other’s hands and sink our footprints in the sand And talk about our strange strange dreams where you fly So from here on I’ll wait upon a chance to say hello I’ll watch the skies and point my eyes to where the good winds blow And you will hear I’m missing you with every single word And I will hear your need to fly like migratory birds

Music is my weapon Music and Lyrics by Mark Lipman Music is my weapon When the bombs are gonna blow Music is my weapon Might not seem like it’ll hold But music is my weapon Of choice, of mass creation My transportation to every nation To every heart that pangs like mine To every soul that feels it’s time To step across the line With music as my weapon

That Old Train Lyrics and Music by Mark Lipman C’mon baby Don’t be buying a maybe When I am trying to save me And everything that I gave C’mon honey Pick yourself up above it Plant your feet and push up And know what it is to be brave I know you hear the sound You feel it underground It’s coming ‘round One step falter Fifty miles from Gibraltar Got me tied to the altar Feel like I’m condemned to pray The Lessons I’ve taken From the crest of a snake skin And in the second awakened I close my eyes to the day I know you hear the sound You feel it underground It’s coming ‘round Chorus But I don’t want to chase it (don’t want to chase it) No I don’t want to waste anymore Of my time trying to taste it (time) Guess I’ll have to find my place ‘cause I won’t ever grace that old train The burdens I’ve kept it May take me time to accept it But one day I will have wept it Yes I will weep for me By now if I’m not sure Of the emptiest allure It’s all aboard Chorus
