about

“I am so happy that we are finally seeing the rerelease of Echos ‘O Faith as it has always been dear to my heart. It captures the core of the ‘2nd Generation’ 77s lineup of the 1990s in a rare acoustic performance along with Steve Hindalong on percussion -- the odds of that combination is like a solar eclipse, but the sun really came out for us at Echos! The vaults also delivered our very first concert at the Echos venue which was so much fun we just had to share it with you. Not simply a package for collectors only, this is a release that the entire family will enjoy.” (Michael Roe)

Track Name: MT
Come on let me in
I swear I'll be your only friend
And I will get down on my knees for you
And if I could
You know I would do anything at all
To get you near today
Hear me say

You're more than money
More than glory
More than I could ever hope to say
You're more than beauty
More than mystery
More than now
More than yesterday

Take me to your heart
'Cuz there is where we make it start
And I will get down on my knees for you
And pay the price
Sacrifice
Do anything at all to melt your soul on ice
Realize

You're more than money
More than glory
More than I could ever hope to say
You're more than beauty
More than mystery
More than now
More than yesterday

More than a lover
More than a friend
More than a talent
More than a trend
More than a mystery
More than a dance
More than your history
More than romance
More than your politics
More than your plans
More than a sure thing
More than a chance
More than your weakness
More than your strength
More than completeness
More than fragments

Track Name: Nowhere Else
Hey Na Na
Hey Na Na

There is nowhere else I'd rather be
Than in your heart
There is nowhere else I wanna be
But in your eyes
In your arms

The moon blew through the valley
Carried away the clouds
The stars seem so much brighter this night
Orion's belt is shinin'
The big dipper's upside down
Over us it's pourin' out it's light

You slip your arms around me
Draw me to your side
The full moon's shinin' so clear
Is that music in the distance?
For a moment of time
There is nowhere else but here

There is nowhere else I'd rather be
Than in your heart
There is nowhere else I wanna be
But in your eyes
In your arms

I could walk across the desert
Build my own oasis
Where the palm trees shade me from the sun
I could swim across the ocean
Find a desert island
But your arms would always draw me back home

There is nowhere else I'd rather be
Than in your heart
There is nowhere else I wanna be
But in your eyes
In your arms

Hey Na Na Hey Na Na
There is nowhere else I'd rather be
There is nowhere else I wanna be
Track Name: Ba Ba Ba Ba
"If it works, then it must be good. If it's good, then it must be true..."

Welcome to the truth custom made
Come in and have some lemonade
Reality will readjust while we evade
The issues that are pressing us
And getting so depressing but
Undressing and unstressing
Makes them go away

We're tired of solid ground
We're wired up for sound
From any fool who'll keep us
Cool with all his lies
Cool with all his lies

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba
We believe, we believe
Cuz we felt it burning in our hearts
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba
And it's true, yes it's true
If it gets us all thru the night
For the rest of our lives

If there's a master race, we're one
And if by chance they drop the bomb
The heat will never find us
Cuz we've learned to run
No absolutes to spoil our time
So we won't have to change our minds
Just hope that we won't die
While we're still in our prime
Track Name: The Treasure In You
devil and the deep blue sea ran dry
the first time I saw your face I thought i'd die
i found a treasure deep in you
and loving you forever is all I want to do

I never wanna lose it
I never wanna lose it
I never want to lose
I never want to lose the treasure in you

from a womb of love I saw you fly
straight into my arms we both broke down and cried
two lives two faces intertwined
something so down to earth and so DIVINE
is mine
and i....

I never want to lose it
I never want to lose it
I never want to lose it
I never want to lose the treasure in you

and though one day baby i'll have to set you free
i'll still have all the love you left deep inside of me
and i...
I never want...
I never want to lose

I could search forever
never find the treasure to compare
with WHAT'S already mine
and i...

I never want to lose it
I never want to lose it
I never want to lose it
I never want...
I never want to lose...
Track Name: Hard To Say
it used to be a big mystery
that I could not understand
why this heart of mine
got turned into just another gland

and it's hard
to say that I love you
it's hard to say

every culture has got its crime
some take the streets others take the mind
the western world loves the man of steel
he's plenty fast but he can not feel

and it's hard
to say that I love you
and it's hard to say
and it's hard
to say that I love you
and it's hard to say

it's time to turn around
and face the little boy
that I left behind
and let him back into my soul

emotions chase me
emotions chase me, yeah
gonna let 'em catch me
let 'em catch me, oh

and it's hard
to say that I love you
yeah it's hard to say
still it's hard
to say that I love you
it's hard to say
I love you
Track Name: The Rain Kept Falling In Love
i curse the sun in the summer
burns me up till i'm blind
i curse the cold in the winter
but i don't really mind
if they asked any money
i would give any money
to the sun and the wind
and the rain to be kind

prayed the rain to keep up
but it kept coming down
washed my hands of it all
but it's all over town
i would give any money
to see the sky again sunny,
but i'll
let it rain
really pour
salt my tears
let me drown

rain on rain on
rain on rain on
the rain kept falling in love

can the dirt in the ground
sprout a seed all alone
can the dirt in my heart
go away on it's own
if you asked me for money
i would give you the money
to make the rain wash the stain
take my shame and go home

rain on rain on
rain on rain on
the rain kept falling in love
Track Name: Bottom Line
I'm getting tired of walking up every floor
I'm getting tired of waking up anymore
But there's a hope now and there wasn't before
I got no money and I got no time
I fall down every mountain I try to climb
But peace of heart is better than peace of mind

I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh no

You take one look at me and you wanna walk
'Cuz there's no good in me and I shouldn't talk
But I've got everything though nothing at all
I wasn't looking for what it was I found
Myself standing on some holy ground
I couldn't stand it and I had to sit down

Wanted the impossible
Looked for the impossible
The impossible found me first

I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh no

I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh no
Track Name: A Different Kind Of Light
I heard about the light of progress
I could never see that far
Couldn't find the light of success
Must've had a change of address
I don't care what the people say
There's got to be a better way
Don't want the usual merchandise
Recycled in a new disguise

I took a shot at meditation
I tried it like the old book said
All I got was more frustation
Must've had the wrong translation
I don't care what the people say
There's got to be a better way
Don't want the usual merchandise
Recycle in a new disguise

I'm following a different Light
A different kind of light
A different kind of light

They talk about a light inside you
I hope I never get that blind
I don't want to take my chances
On joining the collective unconscious
I'm waiting for the clouds to break
I'm looking for the road to take
Don't want the usual merchandise
Recycled in a new disguise

Chorus
Track Name: The Lust, The Flesh, The Eyes & The Pride Of Life
Well, I feel
Like I have to feel
Something good all of the time
With most of life I cannot deal
But a good feeling I can feel
Even though it may not be real
And if a person, place or thing can deliver
I will quiver with delight
But will it last me for all my life
Or just one more lonely night

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me

Well, I see something and I want it
Bam! Right now!
No questions asked
Don't worry how much it costs me now or later
I want it and I want it fast
I'll go to any length
Sacrifice all that I already have
And all that I might get
Just to get
Something more that I don't need
And Lord, please don't ask me what for

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me

And I love when folks
Look right at me
And what I'm doing
Or have done
And lay it on about
How groovy I am
And that I'm looking grand
And every single word
Makes me think I'll live forever
Never knowing that they probably
Won't remember what they said tomorrow
Tomorrow I could be dead

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me
Track Name: Caught In An Unguarded Moment
I saw you smiling
From the corner of your mouth
In the corner of my eye
(You didn't know that it was there)
But I hope that you appreciate
The fact you were appreciating
One who "did not see"
And so you did not care
But you were

Caught in an unguarded moment
You didn't know it would show
But you were
Caught in an unguarded moment
Your incognito went right
Out of the window

I saw a young man standing
On a crowded bar room floor
He was getting less and less
Thinking he was getting more
And when all at once
He heard a sound
Exploding from the stage
He was taken unaware
And with no time to prepare
For he was

Caught in an unguarded moment
He wasn't ready to go
But he was
Caught in an unguarded moment
He had no time to say "No"

I saw a young girl fly
Over a rocky mountain brink
She had had too much to drink
She did not have time to think
But it was far more than just her car
That flew out of control
She had gone over the edge
Long before she'd lost her soul
And she was

Caught in an unguarded moment
Her fate was inappropos
But she was
Caught in an unguarded moment
She's been a pleasure to know
But she was
Caught in an unguarded moment
She made a brief cameo
But she was
Caught in an unguarded moment
Something she could not foreknow
And she was
Caught in an unguarded moment
All fall down like dominoes
And now she's
Caught in an unguarded moment
Eternal sorrow and woe
Track Name: Do It For Love
Take back
All those things you said
When you were tired of living
Hold on
To the dreams we shared
They were so easy to believe in
Turn back
From the way you're goin'
It's a rocky road for sure
Lift up your heart to heaven
Dream this dream with me once more

Do it for love
Do it for love

Tell me how to love you
Let me know what I've been missing
Don't walk out of this life again
You've got me, You've got this love
This world in your hand

Do it for love
Do it for love

And I can see a time
when we will dare to laugh
At all these ghosts that haunt us
Hey, that day we'll say we did it
Did it for love
Track Name: Look
you told me it's just
a matter of time
before the gas runs out
and i can agree with that feeling
'cuz i'm kind of reeling
in the same doubt
about you and me
and i can see that it's time
for you to give me yours and
me to give you mine
'cuz it's a bad thing when two
like me and you
don't share the same bed
in this house

look baby look, look into my eyes
can you see the tears flowing down
will you love me baby,
love me all you can
can i be your man right now
right now

and i know it's been
a long long time
since i took you,
took you by the hand
and showed you my world,
and showed you where i stand
'cuz i'm a little scared,
just a little scared
'cuz you see me for what i am
and i'm a man that wants you
yeah, only you
and i want to squeeze
everything out of you and me
and pour it out, pour it out,
pour it out

look baby look, look into my eyes
can you see the tears
flowing down
will you love me baby,
love me all you can
can i be your man right now
look baby look, look into my eyes
can you see the tears
flowing down
right now
Track Name: UUUU
i feel lonely, isolated
cut off from you
i feel uptight & frustrated
what else is new
i'd feel a whole lot better
if i could only talk to you

i'd give anything to hear you
calling out my name
telling me that you love me
and you feel the same
come crash my guilty party
i'm the one to blame

I need U U U U
I need U U U U
I need U U U U
I need U U U U
i need all of you
and every little thing you do

save me save me save me
from randomnity
save me save me
from my self-sufficiency
but most of all please save me
from my selfish greed

i'm gonna wake up every morning
fall down on my knees
praying to the Lord above
to keep you in my squeeze
this world is cold
and if you leave
i'm gonna freeze

I need U U U U
I need U U U U
I need U U U U
I need U U U U
i need all of you
and every little thing you do
Track Name: Happy Roy
you've gone away
i'll never be the same
maybe time will heal the wound or
time could tear apart
the love within our hearts
so far we've strayed

i know it's done but
i still believe you're
the only one fine day
that love will bring you back
into my arms

come back baby
don't you stay
away and
leave me only
sad and lonely
beggin' you to say
come what may
you'll come back
stay forever
leave me never
baby please

go deep inside, you'll find
the ties that bind up all
our dreams and hopes together
will you take them one by one
and break them
you're forgetting the one
that made them, please
don't forsake them this way

come back baby
don't you stay
away and
leave me only
sad and lonely
beggin' you to say
come what may
you'll come back
stay forever
leave me never
baby please

if you don't come back, baby
tell 'em all i'm crazy, but
don't you ever say you cared
baby i love you and

if you're thinking of me
come on over here and love me girl,
i'm giving you the right
to all of me

come back baby
don't you stay
away and
leave me only
sad and lonely
beggin' you to say
come what may
you'll come back
stay forever
leave me never
baby please
Track Name: God Sends Quails
You fail
You try half-hearted and fail
One foot drags behind you
One foot tripping in front of you

You fail
You spit out manna, God sends quails
Dry bones pile up behind you
More wet mirages in front of you

You can't go back
You can't go back

You failed
You sunk like Jonah to the whale
Big mouths follow behind you
Still small voice swallowed up by you

You failed
You picked the right time to fail
Got your past behind you
Got your future in front of you

You can't go back
You can go on

You failed
You picked the right time to fail

Got your past behind you
Got your future in front of you

You can't go back
You can go on

You can't go back
You can go on

You can't go back
You can go on
Track Name: Kites Without Strings
i was high
like a kite you pulled me through
when you ran
i followed you

clipped at the wings
you held all my strings
i was taught
but never learned a thing

is it any wonder
i came crashing down
when i did i hit solid ground
was it all a blunder
or were all those years i spent
head in clouds heaven sent

gotta learn to walk
before you run
you flew before you
learned either one

now you're gone, you're gone
now you're gone, you're gone

tangled in you
i aimed for the wild blue
when i hit the ground
what a bitter earth i found

kites without strings
fly on to bigger things
but you brought me down
you were determined,
i was bound

you can't fly away
from who you are
you tried and you
drifted way too far

now you're gone, you're gone
now you're gone, you're gone

flying on the ground
is always wrong
i let it go but you kept holding on

now you're gone, you're gone
now you're gone, you're gone
now you're gone, you're gone
now you're gone, you're gone
Track Name: The Rain Kept Falling In Love
i curse the sun in the summer
burns me up till i'm blind
i curse the cold in the winter
but i don't really mind
if they asked any money
i would give any money
to the sun and the wind
and the rain to be kind

prayed the rain to keep up
but it kept coming down
washed my hands of it all
but it's all over town
i would give any money
to see the sky again sunny,
but i'll
let it rain
really pour
salt my tears
let me drown

rain on rain on
rain on rain on
the rain kept falling in love

can the dirt in the ground
sprout a seed all alone
can the dirt in my heart
go away on it's own
if you asked me for money
i would give you the money
to make the rain wash the stain
take my shame and go home

rain on rain on
rain on rain on
the rain kept falling in love
