Track Name: A Little Fun
(lyrics)

Let’s have ourselves a little
Let’s have ourselves a little fun
We’re not under the gun
We’re not on the run, and we’re feeling
fine, so

Drive on down the road, take it
Take it as far as it will go
Drive on into
Into this night

Breakdown inside, another
Another roller coaster ride, well I
Don’t hold it against you
Don’t really resent you, it’s just this thing
that I

Try hard to understand when I
Feel less than a man, you’ve got to
Breakdown into
Into the light

Well I feel my emotions go cold
As I watch your devotion unfold

Let’s have ourselves a little
Let’s have ourselves a little fun
We’ve got nothing to lose
We’ve got no good use for feeling down,
so

Turn up the radio and we can
Sing every song we know ‘cause I know
We get into
Feeling alright

Well I’ve got one good reason, if I
Seem displeased with your
Endless good time
Well you took me for a real good ride

So drive on down the road and by the
Time that we are home
Maybe I’ll begin to
Have a little fun
Have a little fun
Let’s have ourselves a little fun

Track Name: October Sun
(lyrics)

Yesterday, like any day
Cruel words sent you away
Cold, cold day, disappear

October sun
Don’t fade away
October sun
Shine down today

Leaves fall, I fall, you fall
Look around, see them lie
On the ground

October sun
Shine down on me
October sun
It’s only me

Shine down on me, shine all
around
On all I see, shine without a
sound

Yesterday, like any day
So I told you

October sun
Shine down on me
October sun
It’s only me
