MAIDEN WINE
(Leonard Nimoy)
Listen

Take care, young ladies, and value your wine.
Be watchful of young men in their velvet prime.
Deeply they'll swallow from your finest kegs,
Then swiftly be gone, leaving bitter dregs.
Ahh-ah-ah-ah, bitter dregs.

Your time hold precious for youth is your gold
Your beauty like silver will tarnish when old
Memories and dreams shall comfort you not
When the flow of your sweetness is gone and forgot.

With smiling words and tender touch,
Man offers little and asks for so much.
He loves in the breathless excitement of night,
Then leaves with your treasure in cold morning light.
Uhh-uh-uh-uh, in cold morning light.

CYCLES
(Gayle Caldwell)
Listen

So I'm down and so I'm out
But so are many others
So I feel like tryin' to hide
My head 'neath these covers
Life is like the seasons
After winter comes the spring
So I'll keep this smile awhile
And see what tomorrow brings

I've been told and I believe
That life is meant for livin'
And even when my chips are low
There's still some left for givin'
I've been many places
Maybe not as far as you
So I think I'll stay awhile
And see if some dreams come true

There isn't much that I have learned
Through all my foolish years
Except that life keeps runnin' in cycles
First there's laughter, then those tears

So I'll keep my head up high
Although I'm kinda tired
My gal just up and left last week
Friday I got fired
You know it's almost funny
But things can't yet worse than now
So I'll keep on tryin' to sing
But please, just don't ask me now.

I THINK IT'S GONNA RAIN TODAY    
(Randy Newman) Listen

Broken windows, empty hallways
A pale dead moon in a sky streaked with grey
Human kindness' overflowing
And I thing it's gonna rain today

Scarecrows dressed in latest styles
With frozen smiles to keep love away
Human kindness' overflowing
And I think it's gonna rain today
And I think it's gonna rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think I'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
"Help the needy and show them the way"
Human kindness' overflowing
And I thing it's gonna rain today
And I thing it's gonna rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think I'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
"Help the needy and show them the way"
Human kindness' overflowing
And I thing it's gonna rain today…

I JUST CAN'T HELP BELIEVING
(Mann, Weil) Listen

Just can't help believin'
When she smiles up soft and gentle
With a trace of misty mornin'
And the promise of tomorrow in her eyes

And I just can't help believin'
(When) she's lyin' close beside me
And my heart beats with the rhythm of her sighs

This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay for more than just a day

I just can't help believin'
When she slips her hand in my hand
And it feels so small and helpless
That my fingers fold around it like a glove

And I just can't help believin'
When she's whisperin' her magic
And the tears are flowing honey sweet with love

This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay for more than just a day.

Just can't help believin'
Just can't help believin'…

NATURE BOY
(Eden Ahbez) Listen
 
There was a boy, a very strange enchanted boy.
They say he wandered very far, very far, over land and sea.
A little shy and sad of eye, but very wise was he.

And then one day, a magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings
This he said to me: "The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just her love and be loved in return."

The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just her love and be loved in return.

Contact

Once, we had contact;
Reception was clear.

Preparing to lock into orbit.

Polarization ... a magnetic storm.
Out systems couldn't absorb it.

Take a step closer.
A light year has passed.

All instrumentation reads:
"Go"
Visual contact firmly established.

Strength of the signal will grow..

Make one more effort,
Channels are open.
The past is a thing of the past.

Communicate now.

Before the collision,
Make a decision...

Separation is closing fast
Closing fast
Closing fast
Closing fast!

Request permission
to land

PIECE OF HOPE
(Leonard Nimoy)
Listen

A dream I had some time last night
A dream that turned my brain
Of a land where children had no hunger
And man feel no pain

The questions all were answered
The truth was very plain
And I'll go to sleep tonight and try
to dream that dream again

The men were strong and gentle
The girls were shy and warm
Couples speaking loving words
of children to be born

Sorrow, hate and loneliness
They didn't understand
The air was fresh and good to breathe
And peace was on the land

Now I hear the counting
Of the dead across the sea
The cry for help from people
Who want only to be free

It's very hard to turn my back
Now that I'm awake
I've got to go and do my best
And try for heaven's sake

To reach out to my brother
To offer him my hand
To build a chain of love and truth
And justice in the land

Be careful when you sleep tonight
Be careful what you dream
For if you dream what I have dreamed
You'll never be the same

You'll have to come and join with me
To reach out with your hand
To build a chain of love and truth
And justice in the land
