Track Name: Decade (Where Does The Time Go?)
I look back on the decade
When Reagan ran the whole parade.
Life, in excess, was the rule.
And MTV became our school.
Fads, they came, and fads, they went.
The styles we wore made parents lament.
Miami Vice was on the tube.
And terrorism made us blue.

(Chorus)

Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?

New wave, punk, and techno-pop.
Heavy Metal, ska, hip-hop.
Rap was born and disco died!
Lennon was shot, and the world cried.
Hostage crisis in Iran.
Russia tried taking Afghanistan.
Communism was a joke!
And Pepsi declared war on Coke.

(Chorus)

Scandals rocked the countryside.
The Challenger blew, all seven died.
The Wall came down, and made us cheer!
And AIDS became our greatest fear.
As I look back, My! How time flew!
The years are gone, and now I do
Think of all the things I've done.
Damn, those 80s were such fun!

(Chorus) x 2

Track Name: Tomorrow May Come
The Autumn wind blows, chill in the air
I think of the times, and the memories we shared.
When I was young, I used to walk by your side.
An impatient little shadow, keeping up with your stride.
The times that we talked and the paths that we walked
They're still etched in my mind, forever locked in my heart.
The heart can recall, what the mind soon forgets.
And after all of these years, I still have no regrets.

The road is so long, the river so wide.
The journey's so hard, so many things to decide!
The older I grew, the more that I knew
Just how blessed I was to have a father like you.
You taught me to love and to never give up.
For all that you did, I just can't thank you enough.
Wherever I go, and whatever I do

I know you'll be here on the road with me, too!

Tomorrow may come, and tomorrow may go.
Time carries on, but this you should know.
I'm loving you now, just as I loved you back then.
Together forever, forever my friend.
As sure as the sun, will rise and set in the sky,
I know you'll be here.

Right here by my side.

Tomorrow may come, and tomorrow may go.
Like the wind and the rain, the sun and the snow.
There's times when I swear that I can still feel your touch.
It's moments like these, that I miss you so much.
But I know that someday we'll be together again.
Endeavor forever, forever my friend.

Tomorrow may come, and tomorrow may go.
Time carries on, but this you should know.
I'm loving you now, just as I loved you back then.
Together forever, forever my friend.
