“PASSING PARADE” ALBUM

1/ SOMEWHERE ALONG THE ROAD

by M. Kristian & P Lennon

Is it fair to say you played me for a fool
Bowing, scraping always trying to please you.
Never knew which way to turn, ‘cos you always changed the rules
I just followed the piper who played the tune

I guess it’s fair to say you took me for a ride
Ain’t no one else to blame I came with eyes open wide
If I’d have known what I know now , I’d worship you like a sacred cow
And I’d sacrifice this lamb all over again.

What a roller coaster ride we had, must have been insane
I wouldn’t change a thing for love if I had to do it all again
Went to the limit, yea I admit it
I lost my head, my heart and cried
Somewhere along the road I lost my pride.
(solo)
Guess it fair to say you won’t be loosin’ sleep tonight
But was it fair to draw me in, like a moth towards the light
Yes you played me along – and it didn’t take too long for him to
Take my , take my place.

Do you expect me to bow down
I’m sorry to disappoint you
Went to the limit, yea I admit it
I lost my head, my heart and cried
Somewhere along , along this road
Somewhere along , along this road
Somewhere along , along this road

2/ HEART LET IT GO by M. Kristian

Heart don’t keep holding on, to a dream that’s gone let it go

‘Cos it’s an attitude of mind that’s been holding me back way too long
And I keep on promising my self that I’ll change and I’m gonna be strong
But this broken heart is getting me down with a load of sad memories
And I keep on going back to the time I found out you were leaving me

Heart don’t keep holding on, to a dream that’s gone let, it go
Now listen to me -Heart don’t keep turning back it’s a one way track let it go.

I’m gonna be strong tonight, I’m gonna face my devils and fight
It’s been a long time coming but bring it on tonight
I’m gonna do what it takes to make sure that I don’t make the same mistake
‘Cos I’m only wasting time playing it over and over in my mind.
Allright, it’s gonna be allright
‘Cos sometimes, sometimes you just know when it’s right.
‘Cos it’s an attitude of mind, just an attitude you’ve got to let go some time
An attitude of mind

‘Cos I’ve been licking’ my wounds, howlin’ at the moon way too long
But I’m gonna turn it round, I feel I’m making ground , I’ve just gotta stay strong

So Heart don’t keep holding on, to a dream that’s gone let, it go
Come on – Heart don’t keep turning back it’s a one way track let it go.
Heart (Now listen to me) don’t keep holding on, to a dream that’s gone let, it go
-Heart don’t keep turning back it’s a one way track let it go.
Let it go

3/ KARMA GAME by M. Kristian

Country boy’s got a lot on his mind
Make the wrong choice the jobs on the line
It’s all about stayin’ afloat and tryin’ to make ends meet
He’s had an offer that he can’t refuse,
But he aint happy ‘bout paying the dues
Cos the blood sweat and tears from the barren years
Don’t add up to the bottom line
One man’s labour is another man’s gain
A fist full of dollars don’t ease the pain
But it’s all right, all above board
‘Cos he’s only the hired hand

Stop, you better make it right, ‘cos I ain’t giving up without a fight
It took a while but now I’ve seen the light,
One man’s glory is another man’s shame, reverse the roll and you feel the pain
It’s all part of the lesson…. The KARMA GAME

Country boy got a choice to make
Stand tall and let the heavens shake
Or give the boss man what he wants
Just lay down and die
No one else can make it right
You’re alone in your darkest night
But hold still that’s when the answer comes

A brave heart is what it takes
To stand firm when you up the stakes
You live and learn by your mistakes
It’s the KARMA GAME

One man’s glory is another man’s shame
Reverse the roll and you feel the pain
It’s all part of the lesson
It’s the KARMA GAME
(music)

One man’s glory is another man’s shame, reverse the rolls and you feel the pain
It’s all part of the lesson….
And here is something we need to know
A brave heart is what it takes
To stand firm when you up the stakes
You live and learn by your mistakes
It’s the KARMA GAME

Stop, you better make it right, ‘cos I ain’t giving up without a fight
It took a while but now I’ve seen the light,
One man’s glory is another man’s shame, reverse the rolls and you feel the pain
It’s all part of the lesson….
It’s the Give and Take – Night & Day – Yin & Yan – Holy Plan – Reap & Sow – Stop & Go
Say Hello… to the KARMA GAME

4/ BET YOUR LIFE by Marty Kristian & Glenn Money

We vowed to stay in touch as you waved goodbye
You said you had the best time, then you started to cry
I can never understand what made you walk over to me
You can choose most anyone, but you chose me

What a situation, what a life of pain
To add to my frustration I’ve forgotten your name
Bet your life you never knew someone as stupid as me
Wish that you would call me now , please call me please.

We shared the night as lovers, holding onto each other
Dancing the night away and watching the waves roll in
Your fragrance lingers on my pillow
I pretend that I’m holding you tight
You can bet your life, bet your life that I’ll be dreaming ‘bout you.

I called but I keep getting this strange answer phone
I pray that I just got the number wrong
Perhaps for you it was a one night stand
But I felt love as I held your hand
Why must heaven be so complicated, leavin’ me blue
Bet your life that I’ll be dreaming about you

Wishing you were in my bed tonight
Hoping you do too
Bet your life that I’ll be dreaming ‘bout you
You can bet your life on it.

5/ TOO MUCH by M. Kristian


Too much of a good thing takes its toll
But when you come I always lose control
You feel good, you taste good, you’re all I know
And I can’t bear to let you go

You’ve got it, I want it, I want it all
I take it, I fake it, I’m 10 foot tall

I can’t explain what you do to me
But when you come you always set me free
It feels good, it feels bad but I don’t know why
But when you go I always cry

You’ve got it I want it , I want it bad
I take it, I fake it aint I so sad

Livin’ this lie don’t make me feel good
Something’s driving me
Wish you’d let me be, wish that I could be free

Don’t hold me, don’t touch me please let me go
But when you come you know I can’t say no
It feels good, it feels bad but I don’t know why
But when you go I always cry

You’ve got it, I want it , I want it all
I take it, I fake it I’m 10 foot tall

But it’s just tonight, and it feels so right
And it’s just one more time but time ain’t on my side

Too much of a good thing takes it toll
But when you come I always lose control
You feel good , you taste good
You’re all I know
And I can’t bear to let you go
No I can’t bear to let you go
Wish I could find my way back home

6 /ICE CREAM by P. Lennon & M. Kristian

Now don’t be shy, I aint a gonna bite
I’ve got something special to temp your taste delight
Had a lot of practice breaking all the rules
I guarantee to pop your cork ‘cos I’ve got all the moves

Better than chocolate, I’ll add just a little spice
So come , come, try my cherry pie
I guarantee my recipe is gonna keep you satisfied

All I can promise you I got this something new
You’ve never seen or tried before
I’ve got a big surprise , you won’t believe your eyes
But there’s a lotta, lotta things that we could do
Better than Ice cream
Better than , Better than

Better than chocolate, although that’s very nice
It’s a love thing I’ve saved for the special one
Talk about you , come on with me and let’s have some fun
It’s a love thing, love thing ,
It’s a love thing, Ice cream
Repeat to end

7/ RIGHT TIME RIGHT PLACE

by M. Kristian

Save your pity for someone else , It’s all right I’ll survive
Don’t need your Mustang or your fancy toys to make me feel alive.
I don’t need the aggravation,
Trying to live up to your expectation.
I can do without the heartache and the blame.

So save your money for a rainy day I don’t need nothing you can buy.
Don’t need your hand outs or your credit card to survive, I’ll get bye
I aint ready for that love thing
Aint about to wear your wedding ring
I don’t wanna sound ungrateful but you know.

Chorus

There’s a right time and a right place
I don’t want you crowding my space
We’re just marking time , hangin’ around

Save your lovin’ for someone else ,but don’t, don’t depend on mine.
It’s all or nothin’ it’s a lover’s choice and baby I’ve made mine
I don’t wanna do the love thing,
Aint about to hear the church bells ringin’
You aint done nothin’ wrong but babe I’ve gotta go

Cos There’s a right time and a right place
I don’t want no one crowdin’ my space
I Gotta break free , or I’m gonna drown
YeaYea There’s a right time and a right place
I just need you out of my face now
Or I may do something I’ll regret.

Guitar solo

I don’t wanna do the love thing,
I don’t wanna wear a wedding ring
You aint done nothin’ wrong but babe I’ve gotta go

Yea Yea There’s a right time and a right place
I don’t need you crowdin’ my space
Baby it’s the last thing on my mind
it’s the right time but the wrong place
I just gotta break free in my space
Just let me do and be in my own time

8/ ROCK ME BABY by M. Kristian


She’s coming home tonight, I’ve waited so long for this moment
I can’t wait to see her face, to hold my baby in a warm embrace
She’s coming home tonight.

I’m gonna treat her right, buy her toys and tell her stories
She’ll be the cutest princess and I’ll be the proudest man
She’s coming here.

Hey behold a gift from high a visitation. Hey alright, You’ve rocked me baby
I never thought that I could have feelings like this you’ve just rocked me baby – Rock me
Who’d have thought that I would melt like butter in the sun you’ve just rocked me baby –

You’re such a beautiful baby, a special lady,- look what heaven gave me,
Liberty, Amalie, Liberty

Hey, she’s an angel, Hey shine your light on our dark days, sad ways.
Someday you’ll light the world and play your part and rock them baby, rock them baby
Wish I could tell you, what’s in store for this special angel
(she’ll turn the whole world over, over with her love)- chant under lead vocal to end of song
You’re gonna rock them – rock them baby

Mmm Liberty you just rock me,… so rock them baby
You’ve got eleven path destiny (Rock them baby)
Mmm Alright, Rock them baby
Mmm Alright, so shine your light.
Mmm Alright, Rock them baby
Mmm Alright, so shine your light

9/ MISSING YOU ALREADY by M. Kistian

You’ve gotta go, I know, we’ve been through this many times before
Your plane’s leaving tomorrow
But baby I’ll smile and you won’t know I’m putting on a show
Hiding my feelings , Darling I don’t want you to go

I’m missing you already, already ,though you’re still here packing your things
I’m missing you already, already so scared of what tomorrow may bring

I fall in line with this charade because I’m so devoted to you
You fly to him while shamelessly profess your undying love for me

Every time he calls you run, but he aint got a loaded gun
You say he’s just a friend, you got business to attend
And I want to believe it’s true

You’ve got to know that I, I won’t lie down and accept this forever
Don’t want to share your love with somebody else don’t go tomorrow

I’m missing you already, already – tell him that you’re plane’s delayed
I’m missing you already, already what can I do to make you stay

(SOLO) Baby don’t go
This can’t be right it can’t go on, baby come back
Missing you already, already, Your plane’s not even out of sight
I’m missing you already, already, stating into the blackest night
Missing you already, already, already , already
Missing you already, already , already I’m missing you

10/ LOADED TICKET By M. Kristian

It’s a slippery slide my friend
And I won’t beat about the bush or pretend that I’ve got the handle on the truth and that I know what I’m talking about.

I admit I’ve got no facts to support this feeling but when I look back
It’s a game of Russian roulette, it’s your life

I’m hip to the situation, ain’t. looking for confrontation but I’ve got a stand up.
Stand up for what’s gone down before, Stand up ‘cos I’ve seen them hit the floor.
I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news
But if you continue down this road you’re gonna lose

You throw the dice but the cards don’t lie.
As the fool on the precipice waves goodbye,
Take a hit, take a sniff, take a magical mystery ride
Is the gamble worth the risk
Sit on what you’ve got or take a twist
Like a game of blackjack the choice is always yours- you decide

I know the hit’s the big attraction
But it don’t bring satisfaction, it’s a lie
It’s a loaded one way ticket
You’ve been sold a pup admit it.
Don’t lie to yourself my friend
Don’t leave it too late or it might be the end

Guitar Solo

It’s a loaded one-way ticket
You’ve been sold a pup admit, it come on
I know the hit’s the big attraction
But it won’t bring satisfaction
I don’t want be the bearer of bad news
But if you continue down this road you’re gonna lose.

Nice and easy take your time
Freedom comes when you control your mind – treasure yourself

Only you know what there is to know
Only you can let it go- treasure yourself
Come on treasure yourself

Nice and easy you’re on the right track
It’s the road to redemption don’t look back
Treasure yourself – Treasure yourself
Don’t pleasure yourself – Treasure yourself.

11/ WOULD IT STILL BE THE SAME
by M. Kristian

Am I wasting my time
Is there something more I should know
Am I wasting my life
Holding on when I should let go
Is this all that there is
I was hoping for more
Is there something I’ve missed, or something I’ve ignored

If I had second sight
Would it still be the same
Would I still make the same mistake as before over and over again
Would it still be the same

Over the line, i’m running out of time
Running out of time
Must, must’ve been blind
I wanna start all over again

Is it too late to change
All that’s gone on before
Wish that I could go back
And re-dress the score

Solo

Would I still make the same mistake over and over again
Would it still be the same

I could never face the consequences
I could never face the shame
Always someone else responsible
Always someone else to blame

Is it too late to change
All that’s gone on before
Wish that I could turn back the clock
And re-dress the score

Would it still be the same

12/ PASSING PARADE By M. Kristian

Somebody said a long time ago
There’s a tide in the affairs of man
Which taken at the flood can lead to glory
It’s all part of the plan
Baby I can’t tell you what to think or what to do
When it’s all said and done
The bottom line is down to you

Everybody got a right to stand tall
Every dog has its day
Grab a hold and make your dream come true
Before it fades away
There’ll be loads and highs
Yeah, life can be a bumpy ride
Take it all with a pinch of salt
Take it in your stride

Don’t let the relics of time shackle your mind, don’t let them bind you
Leave the passing in Parade,
Leave it to fade. Don’t look behind

Every generation plays the same game
Till the cycle hits the fan
But you can’t be held responsible
For the crimes and sins of man
You say you want to change the world
Well, go ahead and try
But just remember you’ve got to change yourself
Before you take off and fly.

CHORUS
Don’t let the relics of time shackle your mind- don’t let them bind you
Trust in your conviction
Make love your religion
It’s all that matters now

There’s got to be a much better way
Then fighting over what all the good books say
One for all and all for one
That’s got to be the way forward
Lay down your gun

There’s going to be a better way

CHORUS – to end
