Track Name: Lucky 7's
Lucky 7's lucky stars
Seven sisters at a bar
Swing all day and swing all night
Come on over
Come on over to play
There's no sense of time here
We want you to stay here
And leave your little world for awhile
Lucky 7's lucky stars
A glowing city in the dark
You might think you are in Oz
Come on over
Come on over to play
There's no need to leave here
We're eager to please here
Until you're broke and that's a shame
But after all it's just a game
Lucky 7's lucky stars
Try your chances with the cards
No matter what you won't be bored
So come on over
Come on over
And leave your little world for awhile
Lucky 7's lucky stars
Seven sisters at a bar
Drink all day and drink all night
Come on over
Come on over to play
Track Name: The Day My Buddha Fell Off The Shelf
I was dreaming like somebody else
I was trying to mesmerize myself
When a jarring sound came from the other room
And I saw I would be needing a broom
My Buddha had fallen off the shelf
My Buddha was beside itself
I pretended I didn't care
That it wasn't my life
Lying there in a hundred pieces
Is this the same curse a broken mirror is
Not the way to start my day
I saw the cat running away
There's a world of pleasure there's a world of pain out there
And I've been there and back again I swear
More times than I care to think about
My Buddha had fallen off the shelf
My Buddha was beside itself
And some days you just can't tell
And some days it's like jumping down a wishing well
Little Alice when she fell
Trusting that you don't land in hell
And some days you just don't care
And some days it's like a love affair of epic proportions
Get yourself an ample portion
Save it for those other days
The ones that are sad and grey
Like the day my Buddha fell off the shelf
The day my Buddha was beside itself
Track Name: Sunshine Underwater
Sun is shining no surprise there
You think you know everything
Better times are sure to find you
You think you know everything
But you don't and I'll tell you right now
Things are not what they seem
When everything moves like you're in a dream
And the sun shines underwater
Sunshine underwater
Being here being there
Seeing you everywhere
Sun shines underwater
Sunshine underwater
Sun is shining new horizons
You think you know everything
Better times are sure to find you
You think you know everything
But you don't and I'll tell you right now
Things are not what they seem
When everything moves like you're in a dream
And the sun shines underwater
Sun shines underwater
Sun shines on the water
Track Name: Home
When the world disappoints as it often does
Don't be downhearted just look at the plus
You've made it this far
Be glad of you are
And you'll be alright
When worlds collide as they certainly must
And you don't know who you can trust
And no matter how far you might go
There's no way to unknow the things that you know
And you don't have to travel by car
Or steer by the light of a star
Wherever your heart is that's home
And no matter how far you might roam
Wherever your heart is that's home to you
And you don't have to wander too far
When you already know where you are
Wherever your heart is that's home
