How Dare You 05:13
How Dare You Geoff Thurman How dare you try to play me Don’t take me flying far beyond the fields of amber Surely you must think I am a fool How dare you try to sway me Don’t make me cry receiving what no one else gives me Don’t you assume I‘m falling for you How dare you teach my feet to walk on clouds above Beyond my wildest wonder Since I saw your eyes staring through my soul I’m afraid of what you see How dare you try to lay me In flowing flowers affecting my imagination I ask what you expect me to do How dare you melt the very center of my soul How dare you dare to know me How dare you share your heart as if I even cared How dare you shake the ground beneath my very core How dare you take me where I’ve never been before How dare you challenge me to cross the open door How dare you even show me How dare you try to love me And set me free with tenderness and stolen kisses Surely you must think I am a fool I love what I am feeling for you I can’t believe I’ve fallen

Fly 04:19
Fly Geoff Thurman Once upon a time not long ago You held me captive with your eyes When you whispered the words I had to know You peeled away my frail disguise You had me captive by the ember’s glow And I listened hypnotized While you told me I would fly Once upon a time you spoke to me Your words supplied the air I breathe Passion freed the deepest fears from me Replaced my pain with perfect peace I’ve been saved by what you gave to me And I cannot help but cry For you taught me how to fly You fill me with your tenderness I’m raptured in your sweet caress And suddenly I’m soaring to the sky You give me wings to fly Once upon a time you set me free And I could never be denied I believe that I can fly Copyright 2012 JuWanFryzWiDat?

The Color Of Sound Leslie Bowe Geoff Thurman Nancy Vogl I see a major shift in the masses Most folk are wearing rose-colored glasses Whine about the raising of taxes Choose to be consumed over what the price of gas is I want to look at real life People die living under city street light Nothing left to do but shout Beating on each other till the red blood runs out This is how I feel I’m pleading from the bottom of my heart something real You cannot conceal the color of sound Bleeding red and blue to break a nation What we really need is better education Let the children build a bright tomorrow Be the light after all the sorrow Peace inside The souls collide Hate dies Give up the fight ’Cause living as it is ain’t right Know that we can though the mighty wind blows cold Got to feed the hope before it slips away black as coal This is how I feel I’m pleading from the bottom of my heart something real You cannot conceal the color of sound I tell you the truth A new reality We’ve gotta see From the old to the young Better make it a priority Gotta set them free Yellow to grey Night to the day All I can say Find us a way For making it all okay This is how I feel I’m pleading from the bottom of my heart something real You cannot conceal the color of sound This is how I feel I’m pleading from the bottom of my heart something real Let your soul reveal the color of sound Copyright 2007 LSB Music BMI/JuWanFryzWiDat? Music ASCAP ⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋⇋ Imagine Geoff Thurman Imagine you Imagine me Walking by the water silently Think of all the possibilities I say the word Makes you cry Then I see a glimmer in your eye You move me and my soul begins to fly Maybe we could go to the park Holding hands in the dark I’d get so excited I’d take hold of your hand Like the lover I am Tell me baby Can you just imagine Imagine us Imagine this You turn around and steal a little kiss A moment that I know I’d never miss I brush my hand Across your face Surrounded by the air of your embrace A movie in my mind just can’t erase Then as I’m walking away At the end of the day Filled with every memory I feel you touch me once more Pulling me from the door Tell me baby Can you just imagine I can’t believe I’d get this chance with you The movie makes me want to dance with you Making every dream come true Imagine day It turns to night You and I together feel so right When all I wanna do is hold you tight Imagine dusk Imagine dawn Imagine loving on and on and on now Emotions that could turn a weak man strong Maybe baby Maybe we could go to the park One on one in the dark I’d get so excited I’d take hold of your hand Like the lover I am Tell me baby Can you just imagine Copyright 2008 JuWanFryzWiDat?

Love Again 05:23
Love Again Amy Bogue Geoff Thurman I need you to look me in the eye You can hear just what I have to say This can’t wait until the morning sun Should have said it yesterday Don’t you look away and tune me out Don’t you change the subject halfway through Once would you just stop and look at me Listen like I do for you Can we start again today Can we find another way to love again Can we throw these stones away Can we choose to fall in love again I need you to show me how you feel Touch me like I Know you used to do Whisper to me words I need to hear Prove to me your love is true Can we start again today Can we find another way to love again Can we throw these stones away Can we choose to fall in love again I won’t live among these shadows anymore Open the windows wide Bust down all the doors Can we see the light Baby can we make it right Can we start again today Can we find another way to love again Can we throw these stones away Can we choose to fall in love again Copyright 2007 Emma's Gate Music/JuWanFryzWiDat?

Crazy For You Mark Sorrells Becky Thurman Geoff Thurman Early morning Summer mist is on the rise I breathe contentment While you look me in the eye Another way Another day I get to go crazy for you Easy breezes Blowing hope across the floor I get excited 'Cause I’ve been where I've never been before Another way Another day I get to go crazy for you Something was missing I bought the blues for a song It’s true I just was wishing Suddenly you came along And I knew Simple pleasures Taste like water sweet and clear Small surprises Gently spoken in my ear Another way Another day I get to go crazy for you Something was missing I bought the blues for a song It’s true I just was wishing Suddenly you came along And I knew Peaceful memories By the water’s evening shade Moonlight falling As the day begins to fade Another way Another day I get to go crazy for you Another way Another day Another way I’d have to say I get to go crazy for you Copyright 2001 Kokomene Music/JuWanFryzWiDat?

Here 05:39
Here James Casto Geoff Thurman Before the very day I held you in my arms I heard the voices say Beware the ides of March Soon you will turn your eye And head out on your own Before the last goodbye There are some things you need to know Like the world is dangerous And you may experience The fear of growing old Imprisoned by a picket fence But baby I am here Forever with you dear The anchor for your home With love as the stone You may have heard this song before But love will not leave you anymore It might appear That I’m insincere But I’ll make it clear I will be here Baby Before the mark of time When I held your heart in mine Your song so sweet and clear Your melody was so divine I watch and stand amazed With every move you make As seconds fade away And every moment fades to grey But one day I won’t be Upon this earth with you My love will never leave It lives inside Believe it’s true There’ll be no need to cry Forever by your side The destiny in you Will never be denied You may have heard this song before But love will not leave you anymore It might appear That I’m insincere But I’ll make it clear I will be here I will not make your dreams come true But baby girl this I promise you Night or day Not far away You can dry your tears I will be here Baby Now you are moving on The painful past is dead and gone Tomorrow on your mind You’ve left yesterday behind Your destiny looks to you To teach them exactly what to do Days are gonna be easier Days will be brighter You might have heard this song before But love will not leave you anymore It might appear That I’m insincere But I’ll make it clear I will be here I may not make your dreams come true But baby girl this I promise you Night or day Not far away You can dry your tears I will be here Baby Copyright 2004 Home By Dark Productions BMI/JuWanFryzWiDat?

True Blue 04:41
True Blue Kimberly Buffington Geoff Thurman He tells you he's an ordinary guy He's on the clock each day from nine to five His kids race down the sidewalk just to meet The man who swept their mama off her feet Off to work like every day before Unaware of what would be in store And destiny for two was carved that neither knew Only one could tell the tale forevermore The blood of the hero runs true blue His heart knows to do what he must do His bravery shows what it means to be A native son in the land of the free Part of a courageous chosen few The blood of the hero runs true blue A stubborn soul determined not to fail Through his sacrifice love will prevail And counting every cost he seeks to save the lost Protecting those who walk on freedom’s trail The blood of the hero runs true blue His heart knows to do what he must do His bravery shows what it means to be A native son in the land of the free Part of a courageous chosen few The blood of the hero runs true blue Like many who have gone before Whose honor makes us strive for more They champion the choice to pay the price Then they pay the price The blood of the hero runs true blue His heart knows to do what he must do His bravery shows what it means to be A native son in the land of the free Part of a courageous chosen few The blood of the hero runs true blue Copyright 2002 JuWanFryzWiDat?

Shadow Of A Man Dave Rose Geoff Thurman You were six years old Ran up the bridge behind me The sun so hot and bright The blaze would burn the night And you reached out for my hand Looking for a cool place in the sand Standing in the shadow of a man You were seventeen Learning to live without me That rage wore you like skin Hell bent to do you in You found no way of escape From every bit of shame that shaped the cage You were standing in the shadow of a man On one side you feel shelter The other you feel pain And in between that love and hate Is the strength to keep you sane Moving on your own Learning to live without me Because courage set the stage You broke out of the rage Run free and scream out loud And know that I will be forever proud Now I’m standing in the shadow of a man On one side you see shelter The other you feel pain And in between that love and hate Is the strength to keep you sane Copyright 1999 Broken Dancer Music/JuWanFryzWiDat?

On My Knees 05:16
On My Knees Stacey Evans Geoff Thurman What was it that I compromised To let you push your way inside Your breathless words intensified My loving dreams unrealized Soul seduction crystal clear Takes me to when I disappear Luscious candy racketeer Your tempting lies seem so sincere You whisper slave into my ear And say the words I long to hear How you’ll take myself from me And how one word will set me free On a razor’s edge you take me Where no one but you can save me I can’t resist There’s no escaping What you’re masquerading When I look into your eyes I’m on my knees I’m hypnotized On my knees I’m hypnotized Your voice is deep with intuition Drowning all my inhibition I fall with every word you say My will is gone I must obey I float to you on your commands My empty mind makes no demands Subconsciously you tie my hands Surrendering to master plans You whisper slave into my ear And say the things I long to hear How you’ll take myself from me Awake in dreamy imagery On a razor’s edge you take me Where no one but you can save me I can’t resist There’s no escaping What we are embracing When I look into your eyes I’m on my knees I’m hypnotized On my knees I’m hypnotized When I look I realize I’m on my knees You make me trust you willingly Enslaved I’m free ironically My curve in your reality Pulls you in magnetically You’re weak You know it Come to me You can’t escape your destiny This trance is mirrored perfectly Two lovers captured equally I whisper slave into your ear And say the things you need to hear Finally you belong to me Altered in our fantasy Watch me closely as I take you Where no one but me can save you You can’t resist There’s no denying What’s so satisfying When you look into my eyes I’m on my knees I’m hypnotized On my knees I’m hypnotized Copyright 2007 Stacey Evans /JuWanFryzWiDat?
