Track Name: It's A Good Life
It’s A Good Life
By Bruce Bergh

To hear you whisper in my ear
To feel you snuggle, oh so near
To look at you, it’s crystal clear
It’s a good life

The way you reach out for my hand
To pull me close, embrace me and,
Just one kiss, I’m in a wonderland
Oh, it’s a good life

Sailing through life every day with you is quite a ride
I’d have it no other way, than you right by my side

You always take away my blues
With your “Darling, I love you”s
I need to shout and spread the news
Oh, It’s a good life!

Instrumental

Happiness is more than just possessions that you own
You’ve taught me that love’s the key to make a happy home

And just as time will never end
So will my love for you, my friend
As these simple times we spend
Living a good life

Whistle solo

And just as time will never end
So will my love for you, my best friend
As these simple times we spend
Living a good life
Together… you and I
We’ll let the whole world pass us by
It’s a good life… together.

Track Name: Stranger (Featuring Anne Walton)
Stranger
by Bruce Bergh

Who am I?
Just a stranger in your eyes, on the sidewalk passing by
Can you see?
All my heartaches, all my trials,
All the joys that shape my life
Look closer now, and you’ll agree

Today, I am a stranger to you.
But, tomorrow I may be a friend
Get to know me, spend some time
You’ll never know exactly what you’ll find
Just ask and see, and you’ll find me

Who are you?
But an unfamiliar face in an unexpected place
What secrets lie behind your self designed facade
Are you real or are you fraud?
Such a big debate, is it chance or fate?

You may be a stranger to me on this day
but, I recognize
You may hold the key to my tomorrows,
And for all I realize
Will a friendship grow? Such a vast unknown

Let’s take a chance, take a chance to see
Will it work out, knowing we can be
Makin’ sweet music together,
We can be makin’ sweet music together

Who are we?
But two strangers just for now,
Will we become friends somehow?
What will be?
Can it be for foretold, what the future really holds?
What is to be, between you and me?

I may be a stranger to you
You may be a stranger to me
But time can turn strangers into friends
Let's spend time to get to know who we are when we are together
Give our spirits time enough to blend
We soon will see, if it’s meant to be

I may be a stranger to you
You may be a stranger to me
But time can turn strangers into friends
Let's spend time to get to know who we are when we are together
Give our spirits time enough to blend
We soon will see, if it’s meant to be

Track Name: Let's Start Something Together
Let’s Start Something Together
Bruce Bergh

My status may not be stellar
I may not have the bank account of Rockafeller
But I’ve got potential and that’s essential to love you.
I may not be stalked by paparazzi,
Have a sculpted body, or wear Armani
But I’m warm and gentle and consequentially love you

Nice things are fine to style a man, but, things are only things.
When it comes to dealings of the heart, Love is what I bring

I may not have a villa across the ocean
But I offer you love and devotion
Honey, take my hand and let’s start living
Baby, you are my Thanksgiving
Come with me and let’s start something together

Track Name: Chattanooga Choo Choo (Cover)
Chattanooga Choo Choo (Cover)
Harry Warren (music) and Mack Gordon ( words)

Pardon me boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo Choo?
Track twenty nine, boy you can gimme a shine
I can afford to board a Chattanooga Choo Choo
I've got my fare and just a trifle to spare

You leave the Pennsylvania station 'bout a quarter to four
Read a magazine and then you're in Baltimore
Dinner in the diner, nothing could be finer
Than to have your ham 'n' eggs in Carolina

When you hear the whistle blowin' eight to the bar
Then you know that Tennessee is not very far
Shovel all the coal in, gotta keep it rollin'
Woo, woo, Chattanooga, there you are

There's gonna be a certain party at the station
Satin and lace, I used to call funny face
She's gonna cry until I tell her that I'll never roam
So, Chattanooga Choo Choo,
Won’t you choo choo me home
Track Name: Another Breath
Another Breath
by Bruce Bergh

Another Breath, another meal, another day without you
Where are you now, what do you feel, what would I say if you were here?
I really miss the evening walks, the silly talks, and your contagious laughter
I always thought you would have brought your smile to me forever after

Instrumental Interlude

I visualize your big bright eyes peneterating to my soul
The many hours just picking flowers
In the fragrant meadow that you'd go
I'm living in a daydream
It's hard to let you go

People tell me that it's time to move on
and leave the past in the past
But there's a piece to you I'll always hang on
No matter how long my life lasts

Instrumental Interlude

Your presence lives, your spirit gives
me the inspiration to be more like you
I wont forget, I wont regret,
it's something that I need to just get used to

Another day. Another meal. Another Breath.

Track Name: Chasing Rainbows
Chasing Rainbows
By Bruce Bergh


Always believed there would come a day
When everything goes my way
Trying to catch my elusive dreams
I still await that day…

And, it seems I’m always chasing rainbows. 
Searching for that distant pot of gold. 
Living through my lifetime
With a hope that's 'round the bend
Scanning through the landscape
For a treasure at it's end. 
Yes, it seems I’m always chasing rainbows. 
For as my hopes and dreams begin to near
With each step I take forward, as I persevere
They all seem to fade and disappear.

Instrumental

I realize it takes rain and sun
For a rainbow to be seen
But, it seems the sun shines on everyone
While the storms rain down on me.

So, it seems I’m always chasing rainbows
On a quest for colors ‘cross the sky
Are they an illusion of dreams beyond my grasp?
Or, could they be a symbol of goals I reach, at last?
Yes, it seems I’m always chasing rainbows
Hoping that some day my dreams come true
And if I ever find it, that answer I pursue
I’ll be chasing rainbows, boldly
As my new life starts unfolding,
I’ll be chasing rainbows holding you.

Track Name: Tropical Hideaway
Tropical Hideaway
Bruce Bergh

Baby, let’s sail away
To a far off, tropical hideaway
Where gentle trade winds softly blow
And coconut palm trees bend and sway
Come with me,
I promise you a real good time
I’ll wipe away big city thinking from your mind
Sunsets in the sand
Walking barefoot, hand in hand
Trade away the rat race for a gorgeous wonderland

Come with me
To the sea,
We will be set free

Let’s trade city lights
For sun drenched days and moonlit nights
Where everything that we partake
Will satisfy our appetites
Come with me into a land that’s paradise
Let your spirit be renewed, take my advice
Dare to move ahead
Shoes to lose and clothes to shed
Where the only fashion statement’s hanging by a thread

Come with me
To the sea,
We will be set free

Track Name: Shining Though
Shining Through
by Bruce Bergh

Outside the rain is falling
No sign of skys of blue
Happiness was just a memory
'Til you came shining through.

Inside my heart was longing
For love complete and true
An empty shell in human form
'Til you came shining through.

Your words have soothed my spirit
Your touch has filled my soul
Your kisses brought me pleasure
Your love has made me whole

God bless my new found treasure
A love that's fresh and new
On you I can depend, my eternal friend
Thank you for shining through.

Track Name: Make Her Mine (Oh That Face)
Make Her Mine (Oh, That Face!)
Bruce Bergh

When she walks down the street the guys all turn their heads to watch her pass
Yeah, She’s a real sharp chick, and oh, so chic and wow, does she have class
Sophistication flows in every move, her style is so refined
Anticipation haunts my lonley heart to try and make her mine

Oh, that face, there is NO other
Oh, those lips, I hear them call
Oooo, her eyes, when they flutter
I realize I’m gonna fall

So now it’s up to me to make a move and turn on all my charms
Hoping the end result will melt her heart and land me in her arms
I long to squeeze her tight, caress her skin and kiss her lips of wine
Her essence calls to me and drives me wild, I’ve got to make her mine

Oh, that pretty face, makes my heart flutter
And those pouting lips, to me they call
When she smiles at me I turn to butter
I realize, I am mezmorized, and in love with her I’ll fall

When she walks down the street the guys all turn their heads to watch her pass
Yeah, She’s a real sharp chick, and oh, so chic and wow, does she have class
Sophistication flows in every move, her style is so refined
Anticipation haunts my lonley heart to try and make her mine

INSTRUMENTAL (Oh, that pretty face)

When we walk down the street the guys all turn their heads to watch us pass
When we talk it’s a treat to hold her hand, and start up a romance
I love to squeeze her tight, caress her skin and kiss her lips of wine
She opened up her heart and let me in, I’m so glad she is mine
So happy she is mine,
She finally said she’s mine!

Track Name: Night Life
Night Life
by Bruce Bergh

In the western sky the sun is setting
With an anxious heart I’m getting ready
For a time of romance with you under the stars
The moon is full the time is right
The city calls as the buildings light
Take my hand and come with me tonight

Into the Night Life, that special time of day
Give me the Night Life, we’ll dance our cares away
I love the Night Life, come with me and play
Together you and I’ll discover new dimensions of each other
In the city as we live the Night Life

Your spirit’s free and your mind is open
Your sexy talk has got me hopin’
For a midnight rendevous that will never end
We’re young, we’re chic, we’re independent
We’ve earned our way, it’s our choice to spend it
Whatever way we choose to live my friend

I choose the Night Life, our special time of day
Give me the Night Life, we’ll dance our cares away
I love the Night Life, come with me and play
Together you and I’ll discover new dimensions of each other
In the city as we live the Night Life

Instrumental

I love the Night Life, that special time of day
Give me the Night Life, we’ll dance our cares away
Let’s live the Night Life, come with me and play
Together you and I’ll discover new dimensions of each other
In the city as we live the Night Life
