Track Name: A Kiss At The End Of The Rainbow (feat. Paul F. Tompkins)
Oh when the veil of dreams has lifted,
And the fairy tales have all been told,
There's a kiss at the end of the rainbow;
More precious than a pot of gold.

In tales of ancient glory,
Every knight and maiden fair shall be joined when the quest is over,
And a kiss is the oath that they swear.

And when the veil of dreams has lifted,
And the fairy tales have all been told,
There's a kiss at the end of the rainbow;
More precious than a pot of gold.

My sweet, my dear, my darling, you're so far away from me.
Though an ocean of tears divides us,
Let the bridge of our love span the sea.

There's a kiss at the end of the rainbow,
More precious than a pot of gold.
Track Name: A Penny For Your Thoughts (feat. Jesse Tyler Ferguson)
a penny for your thoughts
a dime for your dreams
would a bright, shiny quarter buy a peek at your schemes

and when you are away
so far from my side
I will cherish my penny’s worth till at last I’m your bride

a penny for your thoughts
let’s call it a deal

I don’t have any secrets
you know how I feel
and when I am away, your penny I’ll keep

as your guardian angel
I will watch as you sleep

I know you’ll return, dear
my heart tells me true
the light in my window
burns only for you


a penny for your thoughts
it’s settled and done
I’d have offered a million
I’d have done it for none

I reckon we’re in love
and married we’ll be
and all for a penny
a bright, copper penny
the penny that brought you to me
