Below are the lyrics for the songs made during Tanya Maksood and Scott Hutchison's collaboration.   c. 2020 / SESAC-ASCAP.

Beautiful Skies

V1: 

Looking through far and wide

not a cloud in sight.

Our days are full of love and sunshine

and in your eyes, I see, beautiful skies.

 

The way you listen to my cries

the way you know my sighs.

You keep my soul satisfied

that’s why, in your eyes I see, beautiful skies.

 

CHORUS: 

Deep in your eyes I see beautiful skies.

Hope running high, in those beautiful eyes.

 

V2: 

We’re drivin’ west into the sunset.

Purple colors to forget.

And we don’t dare miss the chance to kiss

or ride the wave of the wind.

The way your spirit makes me laugh

causin’ a tornado spin.

 

CHORUS: 

Deep in your eyes I see beautiful skies.

Hope running wild in those beautiful eyes.

 

BRIDGE:

Out of the blue, 

we’re makin’ moves,.

Out in the field 

me and you.

 

V3: 

We’re layin’ on the grass under the stars

knowing the best things are free.

And I hear melodies from the heart

close to you is where they sing.

CHORUS: 

Deep in your eyes I see beautiful skies.

Love's flyin' high in this beautiful night.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful skies.

Changes

V1:

I woke up this morning everything changed.
Without a warning, our world went strange.
It’s not make believe cause nothing’s the same.

 

PARTIAL CHORUS: 
Changes, changes. 

Take your wings and fly through the open sky... 

 

V2:
There’s no way of ever knowing where the time will go.
Even with a four leaf clover the luck just comes and goes.

I dream a dream, but nothing’s as it seems. 

 

CHORUS: 
Changes, changes.

Take your wings and fly through the open sky, remember, everyday’s a new day.

BRIDGE: 
We’re cathing stars as they’re falling,
not knowin’ of which way to go.
Love, may I ask where you’re goin’?
'Cause this time I’ll follow you home.

 

V3:
Am I dreamin' of tomorrow
or is deja vu again?
All the tears and sorrow

are falling' to an end. 

 

Changes, changes, changes, changes...

Need Someone

V1:

Don’t you worry about tomorrow               ‘cause who knows what it may bring.       Stop your fears and all your sorrows      

about every little thing.

 

If you need a shoulder to cry on

you’ll always have mine.

If you’re looking and waiting 

well I’ll give you some time.

 

CHORUS: 

‘Cause I need someone that I can lean on.

I need someone to believe on.

 

V2:

Well a promise is a promise 

to hold true.

It was more than chance that I met you.

 

[optional verse]

Oh you know it may be nothing

or it may be everything.

But baby let me tell you something.

Let me tell you this one thing.

 

CHORUS: 

I need someone to believe on.

I need someone to lean on.

 

BRIDGE:

Just a little time beside you 

is all i ask that you give.

And now that I’ve finally found you,

we gotta dream to live.

 

CHORUS: 

‘Cause I need someone that I can lean on.

I need someone to believe on.

I need someone that I can lean on.

I need someone to call my own.

 

Na na na na na na...

Cry No More

Fly Away

Lose the Blues

V1:

I sit and look across the room and I

keep thinking to myself 

I’m starin' at the empty space

I left behind when I left your place.

 

Thinkin' of the night I left your room

leaving a hat I'd never see again.

Don't even know where to go.

No place to hide from this sad show.

 

CHORUS:

I don't wanna cry no more.

I don't wanna feel less no more.

 

V2:

You made me just feel like a movie star.

The way we met you had me from the start.

And now I don’t know what you say.

You tore my heart in every way.

 

And I'll forever look at you when I

look at the city lights that shine bright.

Thinkin' of all the taxi cabs

I took and now, it just feels bad.

 

BRIDGE:

I don't wanna be cryin’.

Don’t wanna feel like dyin’.

And though we probably wouldn't have made it through.

I was suppossed to be with you.

 

CHORUS (longer version):

I don't wanna cry no more.

I don't wanna feel less no more.

See I don't even wanna sing this song

cause we didn't stay where we belonged. 

I don’t wanna cry no more.

And I’m glad I finally made it through.

And the only thing I left is you.

I don’t wanna cry… no more.

INTRO:

Why sit on the fence trying to make sense?  Let’s just fly away...

V1:Someday we’ll find our song

Someday we’ll more than get along

Someway, they’ll be something wonderful, you’ll oh, sing me beautiful.

 

B section:

Little bird in the sky let me catch you while you fly. 

Bluebird tell me why, if you don’t say now, I’ll cry.

 

V2:

If you’re ever in a pickle won’t you find me in the middle let’s fly away.

Oh I don’t play the fiddle, it’s a paradiddle riddle with a rhythm change.

It may sound strange but I don't know to say.

So let's keep really simple, and little, little by little, let’s fly fly fly fly away.

B section:

Like an angel in the sky, like the angels heard on high.

All the melodies cry, “Don’t

let the moments pass you by.”

 

V3:

Butterfly, lookin’ fly set your worries to the side and fly away.

Take my hand like a kite, don’t worry I won’t bite, it’s a give and take.

Whistle on the mistletoe, let’s grow old on this stroll. 

We’ll make bets, no regrets, hop on our little jet and fly fly fly fly away.

                                            

BRIDGE:

Fly away, fly away. Fly, fly, fly, fly away.

Fly away.

 

Verse 4: (SHORTER)

It could be very tricky, could get a little sticky, but we can still fly away.

We can hop on boat, don’t worry I won’t gloat, but still have somethin' to say.

B section: 

Just fly me to the moon in a big red balloon. 

Let's leave real soon.

 

V5:

Someday we’ll find our song.

Some day we’ll more than get along.

Someway, they’ll be something wonderful. You’ll oh, sing me beautiful.

 

Oh, it’s so wonderful.

Oh, sing me beautiful.

V1:

May no troubles travel your way.
May all your wildest dreams come true. May you always be a dreamer.
May you always ask for a table for two. 

 

May not all blues songs be dark. 

May you find that spark, find that spark.
May you walk your talk and be your boss.
And if you happened to get lost, don’t watch the clock. 

 

CHORUS:
Lose to blues.
Time, time to choose.
Don’t you worry, don’t have any doubts. Every little thing will work itself out. 

 

V2:

May you travel time, day and night.
May your journey bring you peace of mind.
No wanderin', wonderin', wishing, why's.
May the soul in your feet, take you where you need to go. 

 

CHORUS-

 

BRIDGE:
Na na na na, na na na na na na (Been up all night). Singin' la di da dee da, la di da dee da (stay thinkin’ right), smile wide, just go along...

 

V3: 

And make good memories.
Always say words of peace
that sing like songs all day long,
and may you be on your way to a happy home. 

 

Say, are you ready to get lost?
(Just say the) word there is no cost.
It’s like walkin’ through an open door
that’ll take you where you’ve never been before.

 

CHORUS-

BRIDGE-

 

Lose the blues. Time, time to choose. Lose the blues, lose the blues, na na na na na na na. Lose the blues....

You learn to read, you’ll learn to write.

And time goes by so fast you know.

Haunted

Being OK

Sweet Valentine

V1: 

Go to sleep.

I have my dreams to keep.                   

I danced around the 

fire in my soul.

 

PRE-CHORUS:

Sometimes love tries hard to turn hearts to stone.

Ooo, you’re haunted.

 

CHORUS:

Star-crossed lovers, they pass you by.

 

V2:

Jealousy is  

jaded green.

Faded dreams 

bleed at your feet.

 

PRE-CHORUS:

Stillness finds the silence they cry out loud.

Ooo, the haunted.

V1:
In my mind’s eye
clear as the sky,
I can’t tell you where, but I know it’s there. There’s magic in the walls,
carpet for the falls,
so much wisdom in those eyes it’s not fair. 

Where should we go? What should we do? You know I don’t care if it ain’t with you. 

CHORUS:
‘Cause being okay means having to fall.
Being okay means not having it all.
Being okay means I’m on my way.

V2:
Crashes of light
on a highway divine,
like the light of your smile, it just doesn’t fade. 

We don’t need to know just where this is going. Tunnels of desires hold the breaths we we take. 

CHORUS:
‘Cause being okay means having to fall.
Being okay means not having it all.
The bumps and collisions
don’t always need visions.                        Being okay means I’m on my way.

BRIDGE:
Oh, I’m on way! Where tall buildings and skyscrapers play with the birds that are callin’ your name, where the love is just screamin’!
Oh, I’m on my way! Where the flowers just don’t smell the same, where my world feels brand new everyday,
where the honey’s just sweeter.

V1:
In my mind’s eye
clear as the sky,
I can’t tell you where.  No, I can’t tell you where, but it’s somewhere in being okay.

V1:

My sweetheart

where do we start?

Where do we go from here?

Does it matter at all?

My heart is yearnin’, burnin’, turnin’.

Can you guess why?

It’s the excitement

my sweet valentine.

 

PRE-CHORUS:

You go and go and go

in circles.

Wherever you fly, fly I’ll

be with you.

 

V2: 

Time goes by

and you’re still the only in my eyes.

Spell out your heart’s desires.

Say no more.

If you’re mine

who do I thank for life?

For every kiss we’ve shared

has shown me the light.

 

PRE-CHORUS:

And I realize 

this love we have inside

didn’t take time

to see.

 

BRIDGE:

You’re my valentine.

All, all mine, Valentine.

One more time, Valentine. 

Mine.

 

V3:

My sweetheart

now that we’ve had our start

where we go from here 

won’t matter at all.

My sweet heart

all mine.

Sweet valentine.

Jolie with the sun in her hair

down by the river standing there.

Antoine on the bridge couldn’t help but stare

in that timeless moment their eyes met.

Walkin’ by the river

hand in hand.

 

I so remember

I understand.

If love is forever

here we stand,

held in this moment

never planned.

 

CHORUS:

Tu moi nous.

Tous les jour.

The Nutcracker Boogie Woogie

V1:

Rudolph’s red nose oh how it glows. 

Frosty dancing around in the snow.

Santa has toys all brand new

and here comes Jack Frost and his crew.

All the streets are bright with Christmas lights

we're all looking for Santa up in the skies.

That little boy beats his drum

Rum pum pum rum pum pum, rum pum pum.

 

CHORUS: 

Doing the Nutcracker Boogie Woogie 

and deck the halls.

Jolly holly fun for everyone.

Kissin’ under the mistletoe,

rock n’ roll.

Don’t be in a hurry take a nice and slow.

 

V2:

Those three wise men, frank, myrrh and gold,

like a jazz trio is what I’m told,

when they saw the star of Bethlehem

they went gone, gone, gone on that gospel hymn.

 

V3:

It’s a winter wonderland, 

all are takin’ sleigh rides to the Holiday Inn.

Let’s try to get there as fast as we can.

The snow keeps falalala, fallin’.

Everyone’s doin' the Christmas tree thing.

Sleigh bells ringing dinga ling a-ling.

Sugar plum fairies try to sing,

but the angel choirs battle with their caroling.

 

CHORUS:

Doing the Nutcracker Boogie Woogie 

and decks the halls.

Jolly holly fun for everyone.

You can be naughty or 

you can be nice,

it’s a boojie woojie

Christmas Eve party tonight!

 

V4:

The candyman, he’s got a plan

with his peppermint, sugar cane and cookies in hand.

His Christmas pies bring sweet delight. 

All the girls and boys are howlin’ 

it’s no silent night.

The gingerbread man walks in with his clan

dancin' with his cookie, doin' his thang,

crumbles when he rumbles

while she tumbles and swings,

leaving crumbs on the floor when he plays his six string`
