Track Name: If I
If I - M.E. Law

If I had a time machine - I'd travel to my past
I'd be home for dinner those machines are fast
I'd find myself and tell myself to live beyond all fear
try to tell the truth and never be ashamed of tears!

I'd be stronger, I'd be kinder
More gentle and wise
See situations - through another's eyes
I'd pay more attention - learn how to flirt
Erase all the pain of the loved ones I hurt!

Chorus:
If I could could it all again - my friend
Oh what a life I'd lead!
I'd see every angle and dangerous curve
Know when to duck - know when to swerve
If I could do it all again!

Be more authentic - less phony and fake
Ditch the mean guy sooner
Give my head a shake
Watch less television -take out the trash
Wouldn't cause ripples -I'd make a big splash!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
There'll be no time travel for this little soul
I've got too much baggage to haul
Besides you can't book online
You pay extra to dine
Though I hear my past is lovely in the fall
Would I do it all?

(Chorus)

Tag:
I think time travel might be fun
Won't mess with the time continuum
I don't know if I'd do it all again - don't know
if I - would do it all again!
Track Name: Keep This World
Keep This World - M.E. Law

Hello stranger are we related?
You seem so familiar to me
Are you fragile - sometimes jaded
A human being with a different history!

Chorus:
My sister my mother my father and my brother
you believe in one thing
I in another
it doesn't matter we're all the same tribe
Believe in each other and keep this world
Alive

Is your blood red - beneath your skin
Have you two eyes a nose a mouth and chin?
Hello stranger - who's so familiar
We're not strangers anymore
So I'll say it again!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
There's no winning - there's no losing
New beginning - of our choosing

(Chorus)
Track Name: Little Patch of Sun
Patch of Sun - M.E. Law

You always got up early
Before the sun would rise
Hand me a fresh cup of coffee!
As I rubbed sleep from my eyes!
Then you'd find my favorite chair
Drag it to a sunny place!
That simple act of sweetness
Felt like such a warm embrace!

Chorus:
And we'll always have that little patch of sun!
You seemed to find it even on a cloudy day
You often found the light when there was none!
And we'll always - have that little patch of sun!

Now your light is constant
As the brightest living star!
You guide my steps with purest light
I won't say au revoir!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
I wish that you could join me
I know you have to go!
I'll just sit here in the sun
And drink my cuppa Joe - you know

(Chorus)
Track Name: Pure Energy
Pure Energy - M.E. Law
I went out for a walk with my camera
The shadows and light were at play
The warmth of the sun was perfection!
So began this wonderful day!

Chorus:
I'm pure energy - lovechild of chaos and serendipity
I'm re-born - every single day
Halfway home, now my work is play
I'm free
I am free - pure energy!

I turned myself into a camera
Photographed everything in my path!
That made me one with my memory!
I smiled, I sighed, then I laughed!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
When my mind is resting - I'm manifesting
A life of sweet simplicity!
Uncomplicated, healthy not jaded!
From now on it's all serenity!

(Chorus)
Track Name: Part Time Angel
Part Time Angel - M.E. Law

Thought I'd polish up my halo - just the other night
It was gettin' kinda dusty on the shelf!
Well I'm a part time angel, with a slightly tainted soul
Sometimes I can't seem to help myself!
So I went to confession, the priest just kicked me out
Said we don't want part time angels comin' round!
Lord I'm far from perfect - you gave me this free will!
Now's the perfect time to paint the town!!

Chorus:
Can't fight it, can't right it - got to go with the flow!
Dance with the devil, in the fire down below!
Well I'm no Pollyanna, but am I ever glad!
That sometimes - it's good
To be Bad!!

So I found a preacher, by the riverside - said preacher man
my halo's lost it's glow!
He said don't pollute my river
With your part time angel ways!
Sure as hell you're headed down below!
So I put my halo, back up on the shelf
This part time angel's callin' it a day!
The moon is shinin' brightly
Midnight knows my name!
It's beggin' me to come on out and play!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Come on shake that bootay, chase some whiskey with some wine
Show that mean old world, you love havin' a good time!
Love that wild woman, with lips all gypsy red!
No more Mr. Nice Girl - she's home safe in bed!

(Chorus)
Track Name: Where Is The Chocolate
Where is the Chocolate? - M.E. Law

On this day in February - lovers hearts do sing
shot with cupids arrow - we buy tons of cheesy bling!
Make dinner reservations - rack up the credit card
Oh when will we realize - it doesn't have to be so hard!
I love the dozen roses - my darling Valentine
Tickets to the opera - platinum earrings are divine!
I know these gifts are special - given from the heart
Now I feel frustrated and I've torn the house apart
Looking for the one thing that really shows you care!
Tells me you've been listening - oh won't you tell me where?

Chorus:
Is the chocolate - don't make me second guess
I really want the chocolate - I've got chronic PMS
don't deny the chocolate - it's my secret bliss!
Just give me the Godiva - it's the chocolate that I miss!

Chocolate is good for you - it elevates your mood
I sing thy praises my dark friend - nature's perfect food
The lingerie's exquisite - so's the pashmina shawl
Please bring Russell Stover - to your next booty call!

Chorus:
Just tell me where is the chocolate - why must you torture me?
I really want the chocolate!
You selfish S.O.B.! How could you be so heartless?
Thought I was your honey!
Why'd you hide the chocolate?
You're not the Easter Bunny!

Bridge:
Tell me that it's on it's way - you're having it delivered!
Shove your shiny trinkets - chocolate makes me quiver!

Chorus:
Oh here's the chocolate - right here on the table
you know I've got a problem!
Why must you enable? F
Fine I'll eat the chocolate
It's going straight to my thighs!
Forget the higher power!
Go out and pick me up some fries!
But first, hand me
The chocolate
Track Name: Live In The Now
LIVE IN THE NOW - M.E. LAW

So hard to be in the moment - aware of each ripple and shift
So hard to stay in the moment - the present is always a gift
Living each breath with compassion - loving yourself all the while
If we can stay in the moment - we can stay out of denial!

Chorus:
Deep in the heart of the why and the how
honor the past - live in the now
Future's uncertain at best anyhow
so why don't we - live in the now!

So hard to be in the moment - every second your best
be madly in love with the moment
When you breath your very last breath!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Consumed with the past and the future
think of all you have missed
Let go of the past and the future
For now is all that exists!

(Chorus)

Tag:
so why don't we just - it will free us
to live in the now - the now now
not then, not when but now
Live in the now!
Track Name: Your Mouth (Is Bigger Than Your Brain)
Your Mouth (Is Bigger Than Your Brain)

Mean words flow like bitter honey from the black hole in your face
Somehow you form a sentence in that big old empty space
There above your shoulders floats a vacant storage bin
No connection to the canyon - between your nose and chin!
Once while in the ocean you were shootin' off your mouth
You were swimming North - that whale was swimming South
Your tiny brain cound't comprehend what your giant mouth had done!
You had heartburn for a decade - guess that whale won! (

Chorus:
There's not too much grey matter in the warehouse that's your head
You fired your synapses and your cerebellum fled
Now you just get pleasure from causing others pain
An anomaly -size of a pea - your mouth is bigger than your brain!

I'd need a high powered microscope to see your frontal lobe
There's not enought medulla for the aliens to probe
When your lips are flappin' - they form a great abyss!
You once formed a Cat-5 hurricane when you tried to blow a kiss!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Well you're a freak of nature - and nature can be cruel
Not as cruel as you - you big mouthed pea brained fool!

(Chorus)
Track Name: Dancing On A Cloud
Dancing on a Cloud - M.E. Law

Skies were dark over London
Passion ruled streets of the town
Fueled by youth and innocence of soldiers
And orchestras who had a swinging sound!
They found each other there amid the chaos
Fell in love half way through the second dance!
In hellish times they had a piece of heaven!
No longer strangers to romance!

Chorus:
They'd imagine they were dancing on a cloud
Swaying to Glen Miller - far from the madding crowd
They'd imagine they were dancing
On a cloud
On a cloud...

She crossed the Atlantic a child in her arms
In her tiny cabin she'd pray
She'd close her eyes - see his sweet face!
And hear the orchestra play!

(Chorus)

The war was over and bombs ceased to fall
There were still many battles to fight!
Through it all they kept right on dancing!
Every Saturday night!

Bridge: They'd twirl, whirl, tango and waltz
Loved each other madly in spite of their faults
Dreamy dancehalls surround you
The band's not too loud!
They'd imagine
They were dancing!
On a cloud, on a cloud, on a cloud...
Track Name: We'll Be One
We'll be One - M.E. Law

The world's population - grows by leaps and bounds!
Soon we may start to worry if there'll be enough to go around!
There'll be 10 billion people, by mid-century
If we don't learn to co-exist - we may cease to be!

Chorus:
Black or white, brown or beige, we all are born and then we age
Man and woman celebrate - celebrate the end of hate
And we will be one - not two or three - one happy family
and we'll be one - not two or three -one happy family!

Some say my god can beat up your god - god must surely laugh
There are many roads to take you home
They lead to the same path!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
When we look in the mirror - our reflections aren't the same
But we all suffer doubt and fear!
Feel joy, bliss and pain

(Chorus)
