Track Name: Best Of Me
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
Track Name: Goodbye Copilot
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
Track Name: Migratory Birds
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
Track Name: Music Is My Weapon
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
Track Name: That Old Train
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
