Track Name: Argentina
S.Burtis/JBlackstone BMI

As you wander through the maze of Argentina,
Over mountains through the valleys ripe with snow
Argentina keeps on calling can you hear her,
and you wonder what you thought you hoped you'ld know

In a daze I wander through a maze
In my dream I ponder my escape

Yet Argentina keeps on calling Buenos Aires
and a tango keeps repeating in your ear
Track Name: Once Upon a Summertime
Once upon a summertime if you recall
We stopped beside then in a flower stall
A bunch of bright forget-me-nots
Was all I let you buy me
Once upon a summertime just like today
We laughed the happy afternoon away
And stole a kiss in every street cafe
You were sweeter than the blossom on the tree
I was as proud as any girl could be
As if the major had offered me the key, the key to Paris

Now another wintertime has come and gone
The pigeons feeding in the square have flown
But I remember when the vespers chime
You loved me once upon a summertime
Tous les lilas, tous les lilas de mai
N'en finiront, n'en finiront jamais
De faire la fete du coeur
Des jeunes qui s'aiment
S'aiment, s'aiment
Now another wintertime has come and gone
The pigeons feeding in the square have flown
But I remember when the vespers chime
You loved me once upon a summertime...
Track Name: When Diasuke Plays
Contribution:

WHEN DIASUKE PLAYS* (words and music by JBlackstone)
@ Floating Castle Music BMI

Lost in the mood of a summer day
When I hear your piano play,
It sings and comes to me , (surely it’s)
You, with your bright autumn face
Creating a tryst – oh I am not safe
(I cannot escape it)
Me, I’m the one with the longing eyes
And I dream I find hard to disguise
Please try to be wise
But why won’t our different worlds ever align
Oh tell me

But who could ever be sad (when Daisuke plays)
And who could ever be afraid (when Daisuke plays)
I feel a miracle taking place
When Daisuke plays

Lost in the music of this night
Cross the room in the richest light,
They bow and pass you by
(surely for you)
With the music in your hands
The piano dances, creating trances
(Surely for..me)
I’m the one in the corner there
Listening from the softest chair
Hiding a tear,
I know this time will soon disappear..So tell me…

Oh who could ever be afraid (when Daisuke plays)
And who could ever sad (when Daisuke plays)
I feel a miracle taking place
When Daisuke plays


*this tune is dedicated to Daisuke Iwasaki a great pianist who lives in Fukuoka, Japan
