We Are One

Written By: John Bauers

WE ALL ARE ONE
words & music by john bauers

IN A FLASH I JUST GOT A MESSAGE
WRITTEN IN THE STARS ABOVE
IT'S A MESSAGE OF PEACE, IT'S A MESSAGE OF HOPE
IT'S A MESSAGE OF LOVE

NOW LOOK ALL AROUND YOU BROTHERS AND SISTERS
LOOK CAREFULLY
SEE THE DIRT CONNECTED TO THE ROOT
CONNECTED TO THE PLANT CONNECTED TO THE LEAF

WHICH BREATHES THE AIR I BREATHE
I BREATHE
IT MAY BE HARD TO LEARN
BUT IT AIN'T HARD TO SEE THAT

WE ALL ARE
ALL THE SAME STUFF
WE ARE
WE ARE ONE

TELL ME SCIENTISTS AND PREACHERS
DON'T YOU BOTH BELIEVE
THAT WE ALL COME FROM THE ONE
SINGULARITY

AND DOESN'T EVERYTHING THAT LIVES TURN TO
DIRT EVENTUALLY
AND THE DIRT FEEDS THE ROOT WHICH FEEDS THE PLANT
WHICH THEN FEEDS ME

AND GIVES ME LIFE
AND SO IT TURNS
AND SO IT WILL BE

WE ALL ARE.....

NOW GATHER ROUND ME CYNICS AND BELIEVERS
EVERYWHERE
AND DO NOT DENYTHAT THE GREATEST JOY WE HAVE
IS THE JOYWE SHARE
AND OUR GREATEST PAIN
IS WHEN WE ARE SPLIT APART
IT BREAKS OUR BODIES
IT BREAKS OUR HEARTS

AND SO IT TURNS
AND SO IT WILL BE
YOU DON'T HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
BUT THAT DON'T CHANGE THE FACT THAT WE

WE ALL ARE.......

Back in New York City Again

Written By: John Bauers

BACK IN NEW YORK CITY AGAIN
words & music by John Bauers

When I leave that city I'm glad
To get out of town alive
It no secret she makes me mad
But halfway into the drive

I find myself dreaming of the views
And wondering what’s the news and then
I get a funny little feeling and I found myself stealing my way
Back to New York City again

I flee Manhattan when the mess
Of the city’s too much to bear
But as soon as I retreat I miss the rhythm of the street and
And I’m choking on that country air

Then there in no doubt
It’s just a question of when
I'll be catching the next train
That will take me all the way
Back in New York City again

She tells me that I'm a fool
Always running away
But she knows that as a rule
Once your hooked you return some day

Now I was not born into this life
I've earned it I'd like to say
But while I wasn't looking,
New York City stole my heart
And threw it away

And I don’t need it back I only ask
She think of me now and then
And stop tugging at my sleeve, I’m not gonna leave
New York City again

I never thought it would come to this
Guess I’ll never be free
But like any Fool in love
I really don’t wanna be
