Track Name: New Jersey Home
I close my eyes and I go back to New Jersey
The place where I first opened my eyes
Mom is there, she’s washing the dishes
Dad sneaks up and hugs her from behind
And outside that sweet smell of those pines
It’s a warm sunny day and I’m feeling fine

Oh New Jersey
I remember you just like it’s yesterday
Oh New Jersey
I wanna ride some waves into your shore
My heart is pounding on your door
I can close my eyes and I’ll be New Jersey home

Boardwalk hikes and tandem bikes in the morning
With coffee and bagels and some blueberry pie
Oh the worries melt away under that blistering sun
Where seagulls dive and seashells hide in blue skies
Sandy feet on sandy blankets and our sandy hair
Nothing steals the joy of being there

Oh New Jersey
I remember you just like it’s yesterday
Oh New Jersey
I wanna ride some waves into your shore
My heart is pounding on your door
I can close my eyes and I’ll be New Jersey home

Now I’m fifteen hundred miles away from you
And in my mind I wander back to the people that I knew
Those smiling faces of the loved ones who made New Jersey my home

Moonlight serenade under the stars
Those Tabernacle sounds with all the laughter and guitars
The lightening bugs aglow and on parade throughout town
Sweet dreams with family all around me

Oh New Jersey
I remember you just like it’s yesterday
Oh New Jersey
I wanna ride some waves into your shore
Oh my heart is pounding on your door

I can close my eyes
I'll just close my eyes and I’ll be New Jersey home
New Jersey
Oh New Jersey
Oh, my New Jersey home
Track Name: Mason-Dixon Line
Grabbed my tuxedo, my shoes, and my gray cummerbund
Rented from my favorite dealer, Howard and Sons
I picked up my suitcase, looked around my room one last time
It’s gonna be different now

I loaded up the minivan, with my mom and my dad
My guitar on top, it kept sliding forward, bumpin my head
The window down, I catch that ocean breeze, and smell that Jersey pine
It’s gonna be different now
But I’m more than fine

Cause there’s a beauty down the road claimin she’s mine
And only twenty more hours of our countdown in time
Yeah, I hear the church bells ringin, can’t get you out of my mind
It’s gonna be a long, long drive past that Mason-Dixon Line

Billy Joel, my trusted friend, playing through my headphones
I lean on your lyrics, Brother, to calm my nervous bones
We cross the Walt Whitman Bridge, say goodbye one last time
Let’s get to Missouri, Dad, to my bride

Cause there’s a beauty down the road claiming she’s mine
And only twenty more hours of our countdown in time
Yeah, I hear the church bells ringin, can’t get you out of my mind
It’s gonna be a long, long drive past that Mason-Dixon Line

A little more time till we marry, until death do us part
Our new life together, I can’t wait for it to start

If Virginia is for lovers, then Baby, I found our new home
We can settle down in these mountains, yeah, and throw away our phones
It’s daydream after daydream, and mile after mile
Oh time, keep on tickin’, and Baby I’ll see you in a while

Cause there’s a beauty down the road claiming she’s mine
And only twenty more hours of our countdown in time
Yeah, I hear the church bells ringin’, can’t get you out of my mind
It’s gonna be a long, long drive past that Mason-Dixon Line

Cause there’s a beauty down the road claimin she’s mine
And only twenty more hours of our countdown in time
Yeah, I hear the church bells ringin, can’t get you out of my mind
It’s gonna be a long, long drive
It’s gonna be a long, long drive
It’s gonna be a long, long drive past that Mason-Dixon Line
Track Name: Fall
Do you see those stars floating in the sky
Flashes of white, glowing in the night
A full moon is shining; it’s like a scene from a romance movie
Just you and me, in this romantic scenery, tonight

Look into my eyes, look deep into my soul
Feel what I feel, hold on what I hold
Sense my desire to kiss your lips and pull you closer
Into me, under this romantic canopy
Oh into me, into the mystery, oh and

Fall under these stars, into my loving arms
Fall under these stars, into where you belong
Who told you to run away from love
You gotta fight for the truth to rise above
I promise I’ll catch your heart tonight
And we’ll be lovers who greet the morning light
But you gotta fall, fall, fall
Into my loving arms tonight

I’m standing right here, right here by your side
And all that I want is to forever hold you tight
I’m yours if you want me
Just say the word and I’ll pull you closer
Into me, into the mystery, oh and


Fall under these stars, into my loving arms
Fall under these stars, into where you belong
This wall that you’ve built around your heart
It’s keeping two lovers needlessly apart
It’s time to trust the love I have to give
And make this the moment you decide to live
But you gotta fall, fall, fall,
Into my loving arms tonight

Fall…under these stars, into my loving arms
Fall…under these stars, into where you belong
Who told you to run away from love
You gotta fight for the truth to rise above
I promise I’ll catch your heart tonight
And we’ll be lovers who greet the morning light
But you gotta fall, fall, fall
You gotta fall, fall, fall
Into my loving arms tonight

All that I want is to forever hold you tight
Just say the word
Just say the word
Track Name: She Makes My Heart Come Alive
On those late summer nights in June
With me on the back porch, staring at the moon
She moves in as close as she can
I feel her gentle fingers as they weave into my hand
The touch of her skin
It lights a fire within me
Cause she makes my heart come alive

She makes my heart come alive
In every season of our lives
The way that she cares
The way that she feels
When she looks into my eyes
She makes my heart come alive

When the autumn rains begin to fall
And the turning yellow leaves sing their sad and lonely song
She says the words I need to hear
Fighting for our love through every tear
What would I do
Without her love to see me through
Cause she makes my heart come alive

She makes my heart come alive
In every season of our lives
The way that she cares
The way that she feels
When she looks into my eyes
She makes my heart come alive

Through all the passing years
Through all the changing fears
She has always stood by my side
Through all the lows and highs
Through all the tough goodbyes
Her love makes my heart come alive
Come alive
Come alive

It’s amazing when a dream comes true
When the woman that you love
She gives her heart to you

She makes my heart come alive
In every season of our lives
The way that she cares
The way that she feels
When she looks into my eyes
She makes my heart come alive
She makes my heart come alive
Track Name: Once In A Lifetime
How can I say I’m okay
When you left me all alone, you’ve gone away
We were gonna grow old together
But that changed

I can’t find a reason for this pain
Why should anybody suffer this way
How can I go on without you
When I can’t even face today

I’ll never find a love like yours
What we shared was once in a lifetime
How could anyone love me more
I’ll always dream about the way it used to be
Oh, in our once in a lifetime

I feel I need someone to blame
Or something that could possibly explain
Why the good life that we lived had to end
So very soon

I don’t want to forget your touch
Or the feeling of loving you this much
I’m holding on and I’m never letting go
Of you

I’ll never find a love like yours
What we shared was once in a lifetime
How could anyone love me more
I’ll always dream about the way it used to be

I gotta fight, gotta get up off this floor
I gotta move
I’ve gotta get up and out that door
I’ve gotta eat, gotta drink
Gotta breathe, gotta think
Gotta live
I’ve gotta learn to live again

But I’ll never find a love like yours
What we shared was once in a lifetime
How could anyone love me more
I’ll always dream about the way it used to be
Oh, in our once in a lifetime
In our once in a lifetime
In our once in a lifetime
In our once in a lifetime
