Track Name: It's A Beach Day
It's A Beach Day (Mel Borins)

1.Dancing in the waves
Playing in the sand
Soaking up the sun
Having so much fun
It’s a beach day

2.Crashing in the waves
Playing in the sunset
Watching crabs hiding in the sand
Isn’t life grand
It’s a beach day
Running away it’s a beach day (2)

3. Slow day and just observe
Don’t have to work no more
No need to say a word
Dadadaadada Just relax

4.Listen to the waves
Crashing on the beach
Wind blowing through my clothes
Sand between my toes
Saltwater up my nose
Sit and watch the rainbows

It’s a beach day (2)
Running away it’s a beach day(2)
It’s a beach day (3)
Track Name: Lost a Friend
Lost A Friend (Mel Borins)

I lost a friend the other day.
She sat right next to me,
Then slipped away.
Now all that’s left
Is one big hole,
Filled with all the people
She left behind.

And every now and then
I see her face
I’m reminded it could have been me
In her place

So I stand up tall
Hold my head up high
Take a deep breath
Put on a great big smile
And I say to myself
What a lucky day
What a wonderful day
What a beautiful day to be alive

Car spinning off the road.
Flying glass, bloody clothes.
All alone in a hospital bed,
Finding out my friend was dead.

And every now and then
I see her face
I’m reminded it could have been me
In her place

I can smell the flowers
Taste the wine
Laugh out loud
Feel joy inside.
And I scream at the top of my lungs
It’s great to be alive.

Our lives are measured by the number
Of people we leave behind.

I lost a friend the other day.
She sat next to me
Slipped away.
Track Name: Spring is Coming
Spring Is Here
(Mel Borins)

Spring
Spring is coming
I can feel it pushing through my window pane
Ice is melting
I know I won’t be seeing snow again

It’s been a time since we were running
Shirt tails flying in the air
But who cares?

I see the robin running barefoot across my lawn
Hear flowers yelling
“Let me out from beneath this frozen ground!”

Sunny day, you’re so cute
I could kiss you on the cheek
Suddenly

My skin is breathing
And I’m squinting through the trees
It’s surprising
There’s a rising inside of me

Good-bye boots
Good-bye gloves
Hello warmth
And love above
Sun above
La la la
Track Name: Nursing Home
NURSING HOME (MEL BORINS)

Four bare walls
Long dark halls
No one calls
No one knows my name

Locked in fear
Lying in my underwear
No one cares
I just sit and stare

The days and nights
All seem the same
Time drags on
All hope is gone
The graveyard calls
And I just stay
The future fades

I had it all
I had a wife I had a child
I had a house I had a car
I had a job
I had so many things I didn’t even know where to put them all
I had it all.
Just disappeared
Where did it go?
Vanished in thin air
Was it all a dream?
Time flew so fast
I can’t believe
I had it all

Elevator doors
Open and close
Nurses come
Doctors go
Just a prison cell
No bars on the doors
A living hell
Urine smell
I’m just a hollow shell

Sit and stare
No where to go
Paralyzed
All hope is gone
The prison cell
They call my room
It's just a tomb

The graveyard calls
The graveyard calls
Track Name: Two Jets Soaring
Two Jets Soaring (Mel Borins)

Two jets soaring,
Flying through the sky,
Turned into two white doves,
So peaceful as they fly.

Poisonous snakes,
Coiled around a gun,
Transformed into smiling children,
Playing neath the setting sun.

Fists clenched in hatred,
Eyes filled with scorn,
Burst into a lover's kiss,
An eternal flame was born.

Armies of soldiers,
Marching off to war,
Became a band of angels,
Ascending to the stars.

Flags of the nations,
Flying over the ground,
Merged into one large flag,
That covered the whole world round.

Dark clouds looming in the sky,
Were covered by a rainbow,
A thousand miles wide.
Track Name: Wasting Time
Wasting Time
(Mel Borins)

Gonna waste my time thinking about loving you
Wanna be there when your smile comes shining through
Wanna see the sun rise
In your eyes
Wanna hold you close
In the morning light
Wanna waste my time thinking about loving you

Wanna spend some time with you tonight
Watch the bright moon rising in the sky
Wanna see the stars
Sparkle and shine
Wanna hold you hand
Next to mine
Wanna spend some time with you tonight

Wasting time
Loving you
Slowing down
Just we two
Here we are
Wasting time
Peace inside
Me and you

Feel so safe
Next to you
Holding hands
Nothing to do
Time stands still
When I’m with you
Feel so safe
All alone, all alone

Gonna waste time thinking about loving you
Wanna be there when your smile comes shining through
Wanna see the sun rise
In your eyes
Wanna hold you close
In the morning light
Wanna waste my time thinking about loving you
Track Name: Changes: Part One - Head in the Sand
Changes Part 1 (Mel Borins)


My eyes were closed and I was hurting.

Head in the sand wishing for a change,

The road I'm on is a dead end.
I need to make a change

I've got to make a change.



Time to shed my old skin

Spread my wings and leave my cocoon

Break out of the chains wrapped around my brain

It's time to make a change

Time to change



Open my eyes so confused

So many paths don't know which way to turn

Time to let go

I need to make a change
Time for me to change



I began to crawl

On my hands and knees

Tried to stand but just fell down

Finally stood on my own two feet again

On my own two feet again.
Track Name: Changes: Part Two - On the Path
Changes part 2
(Mel Borins)

Finally stood on my own two feet
Felt so good to walk again
Tiny steps, winding path,
Lost in the fog, hard to see ahead

Three steps forward, two steps back
I felt like giving up, but I pushed on
Came to a bridge, old and dangerous
I crossed it anyway, darkness fell

Climb round and round
Climb round and round
Climb round and round
The endless mountain
So many guides helped me find my way

Climb to the top
Victorious, fist in the air
My head held high
Track Name: Changes: Part Three - Victorious
Changes part 3 (Change Is So Difficult) (Mel Borins)



The only change I ever made is the change inside my heart

First step to make a change is to dream a brand new start

Change is so difficult

All begins by letting go

Reach out and trust

Stick your neck out



Sunshine on a rainy day
Rainbow lights the sky

Trees and flowers everywhere
Birds waving as they fly


Change is so difficult

With one small step

Have faith and trust

Stick your neck out

Change is so difficult

All begins by letting go

Have faith and trust

Stick your neck out
Track Name: First Met You
FIRST MET Y0U (Mel Borins M.D.)

When I first met you,
You were born out of love.
When I first met you,
Heaven sent from above
When I first met you,
I remember your cry,
Your bright, wide-open, blue eyes.

You were born one morning,
First month of the year,
I remember the fear in my heart,
And the joy when I knew you were finally here.

CHORUS

Took you home from the hospital,
Put you in your yellow room,
You became a part of our lives,
And you made our family bloom.

I watch you grow
And I watch you change
Every day so different
Yet always the same

CHORUS
Track Name: All Alone
All Alone (Mel Borins)

All alone
Waiting for the phone to ring
Maybe someone remembering
Today is my birthday

Loneliness
No one I can care about
Just a young child on a rainy day
With no one to play with me

You might say life’s like that
And we’re really all alone
But I remember a young girl and me
My we shared life so openly

Alone am I
All my friends have gone away
I just stay, not sure why
Are we here to let time fly by?
Are we here just to let time fly by?
Are we here just to let time fly by?
Track Name: Bali
Bali (Mel Borins)

I remember Bali in the sun and rain,
I remember Bali and I know I'll be there again,
I remember Bali cause my heart felt no pain,
The people were so sane.

It was hard to leave Bali,
Our friends wouldn't let us go.
Each time it came to leave,
They always told us no.
When the time came to move on,
Our plane would be heading off,
And we'd be heading home,
To make love in our tiny hotel room

The sky was full of stars,
The fields were full of shit.
We tried our damndest,
To stay away from it.
We even made friends with the cows,
All our friends showed us how.

The streets were so quiet,
You could hear the cycles pass
On main Kuta Beach Road
The fruit stands were so busy
They were pouring out the juices,
Mangoes,papayas,and salaks,
People were smiling a lot,
Everybody hanging loose,
Everyone feeling bagus.

In Bali the sunsets were so good,
Every night's red we really understood.
The best time came after the fall,
Never have to worry you could see it all,
Never have to hurry there would never be a lineup,
Standing together on the beach,
That big red sun just falling out of reach.
Track Name: Tickle My Feet
Tickle My Feet (Mel Borins/ Mitch Girio)

Feed, burp me
Rock me to sleep
Push me in the stroller
Tickle my feet

Daddy and Mommy
Please rub my tummy
I’ll poo in my potty
Please wipe my bum

I love watching tv
Playing hide and go seek
Read me a story
Play games with me

Walk me to the park
Push me on the swing
Push me down the slide
Listen to me sing

Daddy and Mommy
Please rub my tummy
I’ll poo in the potty
Please wipe my bum

I love watching tv
Playing hide and go seek
Read me a story
Play games with me

Sucking my thumb,
Counting my toes
Brushing my teeth
Picking my nose...
Track Name: Mother
Mother (Mel Borins)

Cleaned out the cupboards
Emptied the drawers
Folded your dresses into boxes on the floor
Gave away your dishes
Gave away your clothes
Gave away everything
Everything that your love

Oh Mama
So good to me
Oh Mama
All that’s left are memories

Say goodbye to telephone calls
No more paying bills
Say goodbye to doctors
Say goodbye to pills
Turn off the lights
Lock all the doors
Say goodbye forever
I’ll never see you anymore

Oh Mama
So good to me
Oh Mama
All that’s left are memories

How’s the family?
Give the family my regards
When will I see you?
When will I see you?
Never again
Never again
Never again
Never

Oh Mama
So good to me
Oh Mama
All that’s left are memories
All that’s left are memories
All that’s left are memories
Track Name: I'm Right You're Wrong
I'm Right You're Wrong by Mel Borins

I make you wrong
So I can feel right
I put you down
So I can feel high
I make you wrong
I make you wrong
I make you wrong so I can feel right! 

When I was young
I was made to feel bad
When I was young
I was made to feel dumb
When I was young
When I was small
I put you down so I can feel tall

CHORUS
We play this game called I’m right your wrong
Nobody wins
You just feel all alone
We do this dance called I'm right you’re wrong
Nobody wins you’re just left all alone!

When I make you wrong
I can justify being mean
I can criticize the things you say,
The things you do
When I make you wrong
I justify being cruel to you

CHORUS

I have a dream
There’s no need to scream
We can both agree
We both can win
Be on the same side
We both can win
If I make you right
Doesn’t mean that I’m wrong

We see the world from a different place
We see the world from a different space
We can both be right
Be on the same side
We can be right
No need to fight.
Track Name: No Boundaries
Boundaries (Mel Borins)

There are no boundaries to the winds
No borders bending with the sky
No limits touch my heart
No signals tell me when to fly
And I can’t help but breathe
The glow of sundrops in the air
Hear the silence softly singing
See the flowers shyly giggling
At the clouds bashfully kissing
Beneath the blushing sun who’s listening
To the wispy words they’re whispering
About a sunray that is glistening
And the movement of the morning everywhere

You can breathe in all the perfumes
And hear the symphonies
You can swallow up the morning
And blend in with what you see
So let your spongy mind absorb the pulsing sceneries
Hear the robin start to grin as the sunray tickles him
Feel the shivers in your skin
Saying beauty’s setting in
And your head will start to swim
And your mind will start to spin
And you’ll feel a part of nature
Everywhere
Track Name: We Are One (inspired by Ram Dass)
WE ARE ONE MEL BORINS

Listen to my heart song,
Song of peace,
Song of love.
Can you hear my heart beat?
Can you hear it sing?
Song of one.

Hear O world,
Hear O world,
We are one.
Our world,
Our soul,
We are one.

I will never forget you,
And never forsake you,
Can you hear my heart song?

Close your eyes,
Look inside,
Feel your soul,
We are one,
Peace and joy,
Love and hope,
We are one.

Hear O world,
Hear O world,
We are one.
Our world,
Our soul,
We are one.
