A time to laugh, a time to cry / A time for laughing ...A time for sleeping
Against the march of time / The child, now manSoliloquy 2 (Prisoners on the Line)
An idle wind passes the shore / Can I not love you anymore?Idle Wind

Around and around all has nearly turned full circleEpilogue (Seasons)
Autumn dreamin' blues took my babe away from meAutumn dreaming blues
Baby I've been waiting / Waiting for someone to lean onLove in our Time
Baby lonely crying in the sun / Says she'll never be the same againRomeo Jack
Backroads winding over the hillBackroads
Behind the painted eyes that smile / And flicker in disguiseVisions in a Crowd
Beyound the salty tide-way / And the wide deserted shoreWild Geese
Bird ride on the water / Sea roll on the shoreBeyond the Isle of Skye
Bitter rains can wash your dreams / And hopes melt in the sunI'll walk Mine
Burning wheels with big idealsTomorrow's up for Sale
Chances are for many / Fortunes are for fewWhen you Fall
Child of the sun / Would you go where the wind blowsMidwinter
Come home late, come home earlySpeed at the sound of Loneliness
Crusing down the street in the cold of a winter's eveningWhite Tuxedo

Daughter, daughter, daughter / Have you nothing to learnDaughter Daughter
Day bows out at sunset / The night comes stealin' downNight Magic

Donít tell me your troubles / Don't tell me your bad timesI don't want to know
Down on the street gonna shuffle my feetMoving On
Down the wide open road, / the pilgrim travels onAutumn Song
Everytime you smile / You take a bit of my heart awayEvery time
Falling leaves turn to gold / Silver flowers on my windowWinter Song (reprise)
Falling leaves turn to gold / Silver flowers on my windowWinter Song
For you there will be no more crying / For you sun will be shiningSongbird
Forever / Is tomorrow and a dayForever

You and I / Just words I know / Yet never say moreYou and I
