Nathan Labrecque From beginning to end, one of the most sublime works of art I have ever experienced. This music has had a profound emotional impact on me, and it's no exaggeration to say that its infectious and impeccably executed melodies will stick with me for the rest of my life. Almost impossible to pick a favourite track. Buy it now, thank me later! Favorite track: Heartland.

Sven B. Schreiber Frankly, I don't know why I've been waiting so long to purchase this album, completing my "Moon Safari" studio works collection. Actually, it's one of the band's best, full of enchanting melodies and stunning lush harmony vocals. If I had to define the term "Symphonic Rock", this would be one of my first examples. Favorite track: The World's Best Dreamers.

Steven McCabe 'A Kid Called Panic' is stunning, absolutely stunning. Vocally it's delicious with bits of it reminding me of Treason by Gryphon! Favorite track: A Kid Called Panic.

It’s Saturday night and you’re dressed to the 9’s, who will walk with you home tonight? The one you could always turn yourself to is out on a late night rendezvous Guess you’ve known for a while that I’m dying inside and this silver tongue’s lost all it’s words What took years to build up takes a night to tear down, and this night will haunt me for the rest of my life ‘Cause she couldn’t change my world She didn’t see the best in me She couldn’t change my world She’ll never understand Now I carry the can, try to walk like a man knowing time will just wound our heals Sympathy fights through the tears in your eyes, couldn’t take another night at 10A It seems the older I get the more things to regret, I thought we would grow old together But know I’m standing here quiet as love fades away, in a year from now I still can’t speak Only you could change my world You always saw the best in me Only you could change my world I didn’t understand I will try to remember the Halcyon days, forget that I ever hurt you If we’ll meet again some day, could we say the things we never said Now I’m stalking the bars and I pity my scars, like a self made martyr on the run from it all, If somehow you love me still, baby, would you let me know?

Hiding in the comfort of corners, I guess in a way everybody hides Though I need my friends more than ever, I don’t want anyone by my side Who is that boy in the mirror ,waving goodbye to the man? I can’t seem to shake that sad feeling that I’ll never be who I really am Though I’m lost I’m only one over the eight Goodbye Station 8, guess you’ve heard as of late, I’ll be drinking this night on my own I’m going away to my own special place where I turn off the lights and the phone, so won’t you... Help - I need to escape, I don’t belong in here Here’s to my fears, sorrows and tears there goes another year He’s that kid, with panic through the streets, that no one really sees, Oh, that kid looks one hell of a lot like me My friends that left town are returning, they know that I’m too homeward bound I’m sick of their heads that keep turning, of nodding and saying I’m fine, I’m not fine The 46’’ is my friend now, I order my food to the door I suffocate on medication, those pills just can’t do it somehow I shot myself down, August 2008 now I carry this pathetic wound I don’t even talk, I won’t listen at all but I’m hoping that some day you’ll call, so won’t you... When I turned from the truth in a far cry from you, denied the hand of a friend that could help me through Mealy mouthed, unsure, afraid of it all Never confident but I know how to fall Say is it you outside the window? Coming home to me one last time? I swear I just saw your silhouette sliding into the bedroom where angels blessed our skin, now only dust I am still knocking at your door, but love doesn’t live here anymore I know you’ll be coming home again, but nothing will ever be the same; You’re taking your things, returning my heart I curse my own pride as I’m watching the phone, is there anything happening at all? I drink til’ I cry but just can’t fall asleep, someone please give me a call Summer is over we’ve used all our dreams, now I tumble in blind memories You’ve changed your address, soon you’ll change your last name, how I wish I’d change at all Help - I need to escape, I don’t belong in here Here’s to my fears, sorrows and tears there goes another year Help - I need to escape, but I do belong in here Here’s to you love, wherever you are You’re still inside of me As the last lover’s sailing away in the night, by the harbour retired romantics Left behind telling stories of how it was oh, so much better before... Before any of us fell in love...

Born again to longer days, once more wishful eyes awake Nightly schemes in sunburnt shell, ‘just one kiss’ my southern belle As these summer storms abound, carries minds from one-trick towns, what you want will never be what you have Somewhere, waiting for my love, someone, where I’ll go A postcard with her lips enclosed, I’ll taste them and lose control And in my heart she stayed a while, though better men have failed I tried to cross the great divide found between her heart and mine Swim with me, you fantasy, you are the hardest thing to follow If losing you means losing me, I guess this night’ll last forever Hear my southern belle chime ‘No surrender’ summer’s child

Time and meaning never seem to flow as one, what holy was to yesterday has sunken down Without it’s crown, and oddly without sound, your golden calf in the Hudson drowned, ten times a whiteout of the mind, now we’re the world’s best dreamers. It might just be that we’re all going nowhere fast But even so I would not trade a single day I’m skating off, with a sad-looking grin, remember me as you remember a dream; ever fleeting in flickering lights, like a memory fading slow when the day comes And takes us back to playgrounds full of rolling stones, to the mountain village when we’d rest our bones And gently dream, like children of the sun, on easy street, where all life has begun, when fun and games were all we had, before the world deceived us Some might say that were stuck in the past, but somehow there’s never truth in their eyes Just stand aside, cause we’re off to the blue We’re on our way to the wild me and you If you listen close you can hear our hearts beat loud with the sound of a dream Hold on brother, sleep well; our love is falling over you young soldier, be strong We’ll be watching over you, young sister Come home lover, come home soldier, weaving the dreams for you

I took a trip to Harlem to see where my lonely angel’s gone, all winter long Now where’d she get those wings from and my god from where’d she get those limelight colored eyes. I know, you know this is just a dream, but come friday night that angel’s gonna wake me, and then the only thing I’ll want in this whole world, is for her to be my New York City Summergirl. This must be what true love’s like, she’s flowing up and down and round my simple mind, from far beyond the ocean the siren’s cry: ”Run, my chicken run, down rainbow one” She’s blowing kisses in my dreams, they settle down upon my shivering sailor heart, they tell me just where i need to be, and now I’m pretty sure the city’s the place to start. I know you were never meant to be walking with me in the cold on New street, still the only thing I want in this whole world, is for you to be my New York City Summergirl New York, You’re my New York Summergirl These days, won’t come round no more I’m sure, so baby let’s fall in love I’ve taken that long way round, to meet you in your prime, darling, just let your hair down low, baby, and dance like you’ll dance no more New York, you’re my New York Summergirl You know, It’s your heart I’m gunning for ”The taste of fruit from distant gardens makes it hard, I can’t deny, to fall in love on monday morning, with the plain red dirt, dressed up all in white”

Open all of your windows, can’t you hear the boys are calling Step outside for the night, y’know it’s summertime, they´ll all be there And they’re playing memories on the radio Got your back pretty one, I know that you’ve got mine Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland You and me, as we walk the square of possibility Caught up in a love that could not be I remember she used to refer to you as sweet, sweet prince Though she’s always known that you’re nothing but a working man’s son Her ambition was always to high for one of us Surely you would go on, oh baby, to do what we can’t dream Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland One last dance, save your worries for another rainy day You wouldn’t want it any other way But darling it’s time to say our goodbyes to summer romance By the fall, all will be gone and then we’ll walk our separate ways We’ll let this night be our last big mistake From the heroes of yesteryear The only one, still left standing Tuned in to life’s radio A blue song from long ago Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland You and me, as we walk the square of possibility Caught up in a love that could not be But darling can’t you see? We’re still soldiers of the heartland, even now I still see you like I did when I could dream of a place where we’d be known as king & queen

People my people, farewell and adieu, I am leaving you all for a life behind the walls Old friends and lovers, take care of each other this love came to be, nothing but a memory Gone are the times when I knew you were mine but I’ll keep them inside among the things that I hide Playing the fool just won’t do me no good so I try to play straight, though it’s much to late Movin’ on - But sleeping the day away Movin’ on - From all of my thoughts today You might try to find me, but there’s nothing that binds me here, memories fade from the life that I’d made Everyone’s beggin’ for answers but there’s simply nothing to tell, ‘cause I don’t know myself Figuring out what my soul is about is a dark road to take, with a new friend - heartache I am not leaving for the lack of believing to follow the heart is the hardest part All the scenes I keep replaying only make me angry From another point of view could someone understand me? Caught up with myself, with thoughts and words were never spoken Keep it all inside too long and everything’ll be broken You stopped me at the supermarket, asked me how I’m doing Once again I’m lying to you, tell you that I’m allright Everything between us seem to sadly fade away Til’ there’s only me, your photograph and every Sunday Mary my love - It’s late, and I’m tired of myself this isn’t leading anywhere Mary I’ve realized, I’m just a selfish, jealous guy but this is me letting you go Goodbye People my people, forget what I’ve done I’m off down the highway, straight into the sun There’ll be no happy end, for romantic fools like me All we do is run, while love is bleeding in the streets We have our whole damned lives to wear our problems down, and then we say the words: “I love you”, when the words don’t mean a thing Crossed the Rubicon, I’m movin’ on Keep the memories, this town is yours

You know that I love you, you know that it's true You know that I need you, and everything you do Why does the world continue to spin? I don't even know where to begin without you in my heart I can't breathe You know that I love you, you know that I'm sorry You know that I miss you, and everything about you Why does the sun continue to shine? I'm all at sea with only you in my mind and now you're gone and I'm all alone There will come a day when I won't think about you That will be a sad day, that will be a wonderful day
