Track Name: The Secret Snowstorm
THE SECRET SNOWSTROM
By
Blaine Campbell

We’re all going where it keeps on snowing…
It’s no secret that love is only half the game
Your problems rise above, those feelings can’t sustain
You find yourself in tears, you think you’ve lost your mind
The memory of those years that all got left behind
You’re a mess to impress
‘Cause you just can’t get it off your chest
The snowstorm is gonna penetrate your ego
Like an avalanche that’s falling everywhere that we go.
It’s no secret that snow is falling all around
If winter comes this year we’ll see the underground
The secret disappears, you see what’s really there
It fills you up with fear, you say a little prayer
You’re a mess to impress
‘Cause you just can’t get it off your chest
The snowstorm is gonna penetrate your ego
Like an avalanche that’s falling everywhere that we go.
We’re all going where it keeps on snowing…
Track Name: Change My Ways
CHANGE MY WAYS
By
Blaine Campbell

Lately days are passing by and everything stays the same
Except for me
Leaving town, I’ll pick my ass up off the ground
Change my ways, be somebody
But then I saw my guy
And in minutes I was high
Took it off my mind
‘Cause I don’t wanna feel this way anymore.
I sleep too late, I do not want have to wait
For the day when I can breathe
Tuck me in and sing me songs the best you can
Where nightmares turn in to sweet dreams
But then I saw my guy
And in minutes I was high
Took it off my mind
‘Cause I don’t wanna feel this way anymore.
Some people walk between the raindrops
The embassy’s no longer safe
But we hide in style and good make up
Behind the new suppliers place
But then I saw my guy
And in minutes I was high
Took it off my mind
‘Cause I don’t wanna feel this way anymore.
Track Name: The Snow Channel
THE SNOW CHANNEL
By
Blaine Campbell

Put me to bed ‘cause I know it’s getting late
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Tomorrow may rain on a head that just can’t wait
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Falling in line to a beat I just can’t fake
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Every thought in my head’s about to break
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Lookin’ no good when I feel that special way
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Everything in the future gets delayed
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Watching TV with the snow channel on
Track Name: A Girl Like You/My Frozen Heart
A GIRL LIKE YOU
By
Blaine Campbell

I want to hold you in my arms again
I want to kiss you in the morning sun
I want to send you my deepest apologies
For every time I could have been the one
And I know I could’ve had the chance
Oh but baby I was just so lost
I was scared on everything inside of me
It was a line I should have never crossed
But my destiny’s been shattered
And I don’t know what I’m gonna do
When my heart and mind start sinking
‘Cause I’ll never find a girl like you.
It’s gonna be a rather lonely life
Even if someday I settle down
I could dream of someday having everything
But it’s nothing if you’re not around
And I know we’ve had so much time
And we’re both a little older now
You didn’t know how to love a man
Until another guy showed you how
But my destiny’s been shattered
And I don’t know what I’m gonna do
When my heart and mind start sinking
‘Cause I’ll never find a girl like you.
It’s so hard to play and pretend
With a feeling that never ends
But my destiny’s been shattered
And I don’t know what I’m gonna do
When my heart and mind start sinking
‘Cause I’ll never find a girl like you.

MY FROZEN HEART
By
Blaine Campbell

My eyes said “I do.”
The moment I saw you
You’ve melted my frozen heart
Please don’t steal it and tear it apart.
Track Name: She Will
SHE WILL
By
Blaine Campbell

If she wonders how I feel right now
I carry her heart with me
She sends me all the way around
The world she shows to me
She will, she will
She will if I just believe
She will, she will.
She says it what’s inside that counts
And smiles so silently
I looked in to her eyes and found
A nicer reality
She will, she will
She will if I just believe
She will, she will.
In the dark I sit
Candlestick she lit by the window sill
She’s the stars above
Redefining love and the lack thereof
Tell me that she will, she will
She will if I just believe
She will, she will
She will if I just believe
She will, she will love me.
Track Name: A Little Stronger
A LITTLE STRONGER
By
Blaine Campbell

I’ve been looking around the right, the left, and the upside down
And I found that making a sound can call for pretty voices
Stepping aside shouldn’t have to be a place to hide
The last time I cried I broke a thousand curses
And each time someone brings me down I get a little stronger
I keep my head above the ground and I feel fine
We’ll teach the world empathy, love, and understanding
It all comes down to what you do to make things right.
To the middle of life,
The young, the old, and the childlike (That’s right!)
They’re all on this flight and they don’t know where it’s heading
Political men want to think that they’ve saved us once again
But most of them will just keep on lying
And each time someone brings me down I get a little stronger
I keep my head above the ground and I feel fine
We’ll teach the world empathy, love, and understanding
It all comes down to what you do to make things right.
A little stronger now, a little stronger now
Nobody’s gonna bring me down, down
Nobody’s gonna bring me down
Nobody’s gonna bring me down
Nobody’s gonna bring me down
Nobody’s gonna bring me.
Track Name: Aloha!
ALOHA!
By
Blaine Campbell

Took the red eye today
I had to, had to get away
And think of making a change in my life
I’ve been dreamin’ too soon
I’m too sharp to be in tune
With all the intricacies of mine
But nothing ever changes
Or ever rearranges
It all keeps getting stranger to me.
Well I guess it’s time that we try something new.
From the churches and schools
Come about those silly rules
That draw a line in the sand every time
At the end of the brush
There’s a truth that we can trust
To canvass over the lens in your eye
Well I guess it’s time that we try something new.
Well I guess it’s time that we try something new.
By the ocean I saw a sign that said Aloha!
Track Name: Arctic Island
ARCTIC ISLAND
By
Blaine Campbell

Disappointment, numb frown
All my love’s been dumbed down
Lost a feeling in my heart today
I was stuck on passion
Now I live on rations
And everything has turned a shade of gray
Following the stars made me crazy
Falling in love in bars with Jill and Daisy
But time’s catching up, it’s getting old
And the things we used to do we do no more.
Desperation, sad face
Don’t be coming ‘round my place
With every little problem you create
In my head I feel dumb
Like I don’t get no one
Arctic island take me to the sun
Following the stars made me crazy
Falling in love in bars with Jill and Daisy
But time’s catching up, it’s getting old
And the things we used to do we do no more.
Following the stars made me crazy
Falling in love in bars with Jill and Daisy
But time’s catching up, it’s getting old
And the things we used to do we do no more.
Track Name: Alaskan Summer Days
ALASKAN SUMMER DAYS
By
Blaine Campbell

We bare the cold Alaskan summer days
In matching coats we grab a hold and face the arctic waves
The snow began to fall inauguration day
They tipped their hats, put up a wall, and built an empty space
So in my evening attire (Cold as the Alaskan snow)
I’ll warm myself by the fire (You should know, you should know)
And drink a toast to something new.
Love tells you that you’re wrong at the right time
But this snow storm that you construed
Will isolate you as you reach for a good life
It’s a slippery drive through the ice.
A waking truth is that I’d rather hibernate
While showmen show the men inside
The shaman oscillates
So in my evening attire (Cold as the Alaskan snow)
I’ll warm myself by the fire (You should know, you should know)
And drink a toast to something new.
‘Cause we’re the new people
We’re the new people
We’re the new people
We’re the new people.
Track Name: Anna
ANNA
By
Blaine Campbell

Anna, the thoughts you’ve got me thinking
Anna, for real
Anna, the thoughts you’ve got me thinking
Anna, for real.
Gonna take a chance
An impossible circumstance
We could melt the snow
And see the earth that lies below
Anna, the thoughts you’ve got me thinking
Anna, for real.
Take down your wall
And we will watch the glacier fall
In your Sedgwick hat
Guide me through the ocean
Anna, the thoughts you’ve got me thinking
Anna, for real
Push, push me away
Ask, ask me if I want to stay
‘Cause we can make it through rain and wind and snow
If you know what’s real
Anna, the thoughts you’ve got me thinking
Anna, for real
Anna, the thoughts you’ve got me thinking
Anna, for real.
Track Name: Today I Made the Biggest Effort to Smile
TODAY I MADE THE BIGGEST EFFORT TO SMILE
By
Blaine Campbell

I laid in bed and thought for a while
And today I made the biggest effort to smile
Pull the sheet back over my head
Raising a family I’ll make you a home in the country.
I tried to play it cool but that’s not my style
And today I made the biggest effort to smile
Pull the sheet back over my head
Raising a family I’ll make you a home in the country
Raising a family I’ll make you a home in the country.
