Track Name: Way Back Home
We lost our way somewhere,
You used to say "I love you",
Honey, now you say, "I don't care".
Cried so many tears on my pillow,
Tried to work it out, I don't wanna fuss about.
If this is love, I don't wanna be loved.
If this is happiness, you can have that too.
Cause you don't listen, and you just keep on thinkin'
"I'm goin' to stay right here".

But baby..

I don't want nothin', nothin'.
Nothin' but my way back home.
I don't want nothin', nothin'.
Nothin' but my way back home.
I don't want nothin', nothin'.
Nothin' but my way back home.
I don't want nothin', nothin'.
I gotta find my way back home.

Diamonds sparkle, now flowers bloom.
I met my true love in a crowded room.
I never thought it could happen to me,
I'm blessed with love, for eternity.
Life is more than what you see,
Each day it brings a new possibility.
You just wait and see, don't give up on love,
Cause love will come.

I don't want nothin', nothin'.
Nothin' but my way back home.
I don't want nothin', nothin'.
Nothin' but my way back home.
I don't want nothin', nothin'.
Nothin' but my way back home.
I don't want nothin', nothin'.
I gotta find my way back home.

He said he loved me, but didn't do me right.
Then I met you, now I see the light.
No tricks or games, no time to play,
Your love for me, and I feel the same.
No hesitations, we're standing here.
We're so in love, this time for real!
Mountains and rivers,
and from across the sea,
Your love came down, and it found me!
True Love. True Love.

I found true love, just like it's supposed to be.
Found true love, you and me.
I found true love, just like it's supposed to be.
Found true love, just you and me.
Track Name: Spanning the Gap
Red Trane Green Trane Yellow Trane Blue
Train your mind
Train your fingers and train your soul too.
Got to love whatcher doin
Make love to the music
Like Ella Fitzgerald
And my oldest brother Louis.
Armstrong
Headstrong
Lines long
Pannin' from side to side
Yeah they shot out like a cannon.
So I listen back to Freddie Hubbard
Then to Terence Blanchard.
Saxophone
Slide trombone
Bass and keys be slammin.
Jammin
We be
Jammin
To get free.
Bring it out
Take it in
Fight a bout
Then again.
Treat it gentle like a lady
Lady bird, lady day
Play a ballad for your lady
Do it like your love makin'.
Make it hot like hot house.
Weave like charlie rouse
Charlie Parker Charlie Mingus
You know what the real thing is
To make it sound like you're singin even when you're not.
When your playin you don't wanna sound like a robot.

Because there ain't a secret potion
And there really ain't a secret
Information ain't encoded

It's on the record in the open

x2

Dust off the mental mantle
Bring in something fresh.
Blow a line
Take your time
Work it out
Like a line.
Like a jivin' thing
Like a Basie swing
Like the one and only mother
Duke Ellington.
In a sentimental mood
In a mellow tone
Coltrane
Western music with an eastern drone.
I love Grant Green
With the rolling guitar screams
From the funk to the soul to the groove to the gospel.
Got it all
Standin tall
Never fall
Ahmad Jamal
With the space and silence
Independence
Interplay with the band
With the man
Californ-i-a
Dexter Gordon on the west coast baby.
Back on the east got the mother lovin B - K.
You got the Miles Day
Got the 5-1-8
Jazz Messengers.
Go and get your lad-ay
Go and get your girl

Because there ain't a secret potion
And there really ain't a secret
Information ain't encoded

It's on the record in the open

Track Name: Bad Bad Bad
Since it all began
you changed this lonely man
(and) you don't understand
but girl I've got a plan

So come over here , and let it be
I know you're tired of chasing me
you call me trouble
And that's just what I am!

Cuz' I'm bad, bad, bad, so bad
Said I'm bad, bad, bad, so bad, so bad
Yes I'm...

Waitin' here for you
and all you have to do
is stay and love me true
('cause) I'd do it all for you

So come over here, and set it free
I know you're weary of chasing me
you call it danger,
and that's just what I am!

Cause' I'm bad, bad, bad, so bad
Said I'm bad, bad, bad, so bad, so bad
Yes I'm....
