Lyrics

No Dice

Written By: Hector Zaragoza

Title: No Dice

Starts like tonight with the cameras rolling to what I'm thinking Its like living a movie but as the story goes, the ending no one knows This show is sinking Down Down and I'm feeling timid Why look back to what you're resisting We wish for a kiss but no dice and we settle for our drunken goodbyes
So close, but so far away So close, but so far away
Sooner or later I'm gonna walk on empty and watch you happy Its like the end of the seasons but as the story goes the ending no one knows but has a reason Down Down and I'm feeling timid Why look back to what you're resisting We wish for a kiss but no dice and we settle for our drunken goodbyes
So close, but so far away So close, but so far away

Something Bigger

Written By: Hector Zaragoza

You're not alone in the world.
I want you to be your dreams.
I want to be the melody that makes a Difference.
I want to make it alive and do the right thing in life.
I want to try because maybe I can make a difference.
What everybody's looking for, everybody feels its far away.
Believe the words you say and make true when no one cares to.
Don't you see the world is too small for what we call for.
I want to see it in lights burning bright in the sky.
Expose the lies in life, I can make a Difference.
We need each other's side to be together tonight.
We'll live this life, we'll live it right, We'll Make A Difference.
What everybody's looking for, everybody feels its far away.
This world needs something bigger.
This world needs something bigger than me.

In Her Eyes

Written By: Hector Zaragoza

Shes cruising the streets in the haight in San Francisco. Shes fallen in love with the life she lives. Shes making her name from the bay to san diego and she smiles all the time.
Shes cruising the streets near The Grove in LA. Shes fallen in love with the life she lives. Shes making her name blowing hugs and blowing kisses and she smiles all the time.
Sparkles in her eyes. Shes got sparkles in her eye. shes got something about her that I like.
Shes cruising the streets downtown in San Diego. Shes fallen in love with the life she lives. She plays in the sand and throws rocks into the Ocean and she smiles all the time.
We can fall in love. We can be happy. oh oh don't say it so easy now because we're going to take a chance now because I fell in love with you. Shes got sparkles in her eyes. Shes got something about her that I like.

I Can Remember

Written By: Hector Zaragoza

You clock in on time with your dreams on hold waiting for the right time and wishing for some more time.
Have you ever felt that you were meant for something?
You're better than the things life makes you do.
"Wait my friend", they tell you as they fill your life with debt, and they smile so kind when they take your will to survive.
"Wait my friend". they tell you and they'll remind you once again, and they smile so kind when they take your will to survive.
I can remember the places and the faces in my dreams I thought were real. I can remember the buildings and the cars and the oceans falling down. I can remember saving you.
It was just another day in the city, but the buildings started falling down and the ocean tide reached the other side of the city.
I found you pretty, alone, and scarred. We made a human connection. I guided us through this catastrophe.
I can remember the places and the faces in my dreams I thought were real. I can remember the buildings and the cars and the oceans falling down. I can remember saving you.
We found our way to the mountains. We survived, you and I, in this dream of mine. And I know I'll always remember you.
