Song Titles and Lyrics:

Aqua Eyes ∙ Tami René
Have you ever had the opportunity to look deeply into the eyes of someone who loves you for who you are?

I get lost, in a deep sea of blue, whenever I am close to you ∙ I get found, inside a world of peace, whenever you are next to me ∙ And I love swimming in your aqua eyes, sinking softly in a blue lagoon ∙ I love sailing on your deep blue seas, flying into the far horizon ∙ Climbing into the love you give me, running headlong through the world with you. I get dizzy, in a hurricane of love, when you look at me that way ∙ I get crazy, and a little bit wild, when we fight I am just like a child ∙ But I love swimming in your aqua eyes, sinking softly in a blue lagoon ∙ I love sailing on your deep blue seas, flying into the far horizon ∙ Climbing into the love you give me, running headlong through the world with you. Where did you come from, out of the blue, you’re here beside me, helping me through ∙ You let me be me, and I love that you’re you, and I’m mesmerized by those Aqua Eyes ∙ And I love swimming in your aqua eyes, sinking softly in a blue lagoon ∙ And I love sailing on your deep blue seas, flying into the far horizon ∙ And I love swimming in your aqua eyes, sinking softly in a blue lagoon ∙ And I love sailing on your deep blue seas, flying into the far horizon ∙ Climbing into the love you give me, running headlong through the world with you ∙ I’m running headlong through the world, with you.



Taboo ∙ Tami René
Here’s to love at first sight even if you can’t admit to it right away.

Hey, hey, you remember? Remember the part where he wins your heart, it was one fine summer night ∙ How you loved, how you loved the very thought of him, how he made your soul ignite ∙ And he said, said he wasn’t really looking, didn’t want to be pursued ∙ So you could not, could not admit to the love you felt, every time he looked at you ∙ But you knew, yeah you knew , though to say it was taboo ∙ And you knew, yeah, you knew, though to claim it, was too soon ∙ Yeah, yeah, you remember? Remember the walk along the river side, with the water rushing by ∙ How the scent, the scent of him on the evening breeze, made your thoughts seem justified ∙ How he said, said maybe he was looking after all, if that someone, was anything like you ∙ And he wondered, wondered as he reached down for your kiss, if he’d been slipped some witch’s brew ∙ And you knew, yeah you knew, though to say it was taboo ∙ And you knew, yeah, you knew, though to claim it, was too soon ∙ And you knew, yeah you knew, though to say it was taboo ∙ And you knew, yeah, you knew, though to claim it, was too soon ∙ You remember? ∙ Hey, hey, you remember? ∙ Yeah, yeah, you remember? ∙ Hey! Hey!



Fountain ∙ Tami René
Finding your own path, and enjoying the journey.

I’m looking high and low can you tell me where to find it? I’m digging deep and wide, do you know? Crystal clear water, crystal clear vision ∙ I’m looking for the fountain, the fountain of love, the fountain of youth, the gift from above ∙ I’m seeking the fountain, the fountain of youth. The fountain of love and of truth ∙ Where do I find it? Should be simple ∙ Secret of the ages, where would it be hid? Why don’t we know? Didn’t they want us to find it? ∙ Secret of the sages, the wisest of them all, it’s only obvious, it must be hidden in plain site ∙ Maybe nature’s got it right, maybe simplest is best, maybe those in the wild daily put it to the test ∙ And maybe we’ve come full circle with our technology, and we will finally see, the perfect beauty, nature’s philosophy ∙ I’m looking high and low, can you tell me where to find it? I’m digging deep and wide, do you know? Crystal clear water, crystal clear vision ∙ I’m seeking the fountain, the fountain of youth. The fountain of love and of truth ∙ Where do I find it? Should be so simple. Where do I find it? Should be so simple.



Witch Doctor ∙ Tami René
Thanks to Brandon Mitchell for the song title. Enjoying many adventures on the quest toward a more natural existence.

Not the rich doctor, she’s the witch doctor, coming round in your dreams ∙ Not the sad doctor, she’s the glad doctor, filling your head with schemes ∙ And she’s beautiful and shy, she’s mysterious and sly ∙ And she’s wonderful and you’ll find, that she gets inside, she gets inside your mind ∙ Not the drug doctor, she’s the love doctor, bringing all good things ∙ Not the bad doctor, she’s the glad doctor, helping you find your dreams ∙ And she’s beautiful and shy, she’s mysterious and sly ∙ And she’s wonderful and you’ll find, that she gets inside, she gets inside your mind ∙ Not the rich doctor, she’s the witch doctor, coming round in your dreams ∙ Not the evil woman, she’s the healing woman, helping to mend your wings ∙ And she’s beautiful and shy, she’s mysterious and sly ∙ And she’s wonderful and you’ll find, that she gets inside, she gets inside ∙ And she’s beautiful and shy, she’s mysterious and sly ∙ And she’s wonderful and you’ll find, that she gets inside, she gets inside your mind ∙ She’s the witch doctor ∙ She’s the witch doctor ∙ Coming round in your dreams ∙ She’s the witch doctor, coming round, she’s coming round in your dreams.



New Moon Night ∙ Tami René ∙ Valerie Hart ∙ Sierra Hart
Love. With all of life’s unknowns still ahead.

It’s a new moon night, we’ll make our own light, you’ve gotta hold me tight, hold me tight tonight ∙ Please don’t let me go, or we’ll never know, just how far the two of us can go ∙ Out in the dark, out under the stars, we’re gonna make our own way, we will plan our escape ∙ So peaceful, so right, and it’s so quiet tonight ∙ I wish that you and I could always be together, I wish this new moon night would last forever ∙ Why on earth do you make me wait, to spend my life, spend my life with you? ∙ What more can I do, what more can I say? No one loves you more and nothing stands in our way ∙ And I have finally found, all that I ever wanted ∙ So peaceful, so right, and it’s so quiet tonight ∙ I wish that you and I could always be together, I wish this new moon night would last forever ∙ We’ve yet to bridge this final gap, but we must or my heart will tear right in half ∙ Some say it’s not right to love you like I do, but if you’re ever in love you know it’s not what you choose, not what you choose ∙ I wish that you and I could always be together, I wish this new moon night would last forever ∙ I wish that you and I could always be together, I wish this new moon night would last forever ∙ Please don’t let me go, on this new moon night ∙ On this new moon night.



Right On Track ∙ Tami René
Thanks to Robert Bartley for the song title. Setting your mind firmly on what you want is a powerful force to be reckoned with.

It’s going right, it’s working out, I’m right on track, I’m on the move ∙ The course is set, my bags are packed, my plans are made, no going back ∙ Right on track, my bags are packed, no turning back ∙ Right on track, catch your dreams, and come with me ∙ It’s what I want, it’s what I see, it’s what I am and what I need ∙ The dream is here, my thoughts are strong, the point is fixed, I’m moving on ∙ Right on track, my bags are packed no turning back ∙ Right on track, catch your dreams, and come with me ∙ Movin’ on, I’m going to get where I’m going to ∙ Moving strong, I’ve got what it takes ∙ Now honey, I’m feeling good, I’m feeling great, check out this smile on my face ∙ Oh yeah, I think about it all the time, and watching it happen’s worth every dime ∙ Right on track, my bags are packed, no turning back ∙ Right on track, catch your dreams, and come with me ∙ Right on track, my bags are packed, no turning back ∙ Right on track, catch your dreams, and come with me ∙ Go pack your dreams, you come with me.



What If? ∙ Tami René
To the world, with love. Wishing we could all give more than we take and forgive more than we avenge.

Every time the clock strikes 9/11 I remember that day ∙ The sadness and pain of people hurting others that way ∙ And I wonder what would cause someone to hate another so, when deep down inside I’m sure we all want peace and love to grow ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain? ∙ But the enemy is evil and they must be done away, by any means and at any cost, evil cannot be allowed to stay ∙ So we fight it and we wound it and we strike right at the cause, but too late we realize that evil is as evil does ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain? ∙ Love, love, what makes it so hard to find? Love, the most precious gift ∙ Love, love, is it so hard to be kind? Love gives the power to live ∙ Does the enemy see us in the same way that we see them? Are they also giving their all to see the good side win? ∙ Yeah, we’ve tried fighting back and we have tried to overcome, what more could be lost if we tried to give our love? ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love in spite of our pain ∙ What if, heaven forbid, what if we forgave? Gave them our love instead of our pain? ∙ What if? What if?



Ghost Town ∙ Tami René
To René with love. I still miss you every day, and you will never be forgotten.

Bars on the windows, locks on the doors, no one comes around here anymore ∙ The old memories are just fading away, colors are turning to gray ∙ And it’s just a ghost town, an empty old space, living in a ghost town, all alone in this place ∙ Dusty roads lead to nowhere, ancient footprints in the sand ∙ Silent testimony to this long forgotten land ∙ Weeds in the fields, crosses on the graves, is there anything left here to save? ∙ Empty rooms in the houses, they all have moved on and I have been left here alone ∙ And it’s just a ghost town, an empty old space, living in a ghost town, all alone in this place ∙ Dusty roads lead to nowhere, ancient footprints in the sand ∙ Silent testimony to this long forgotten land ∙ Singing to myself, singing to the trees, singing all the stories, singing in the breeze ∙ Ladadadada, ladadadada, oooooooh, ooooooh ∙ I’m a ghost in a ghost town, I’m tied to this space, living in a ghost town, all alone in this place, just a ghost town, I’m tied to this space, living in a ghost town, all alone in this place.



Spring Fever ∙ Tami René
Feeling the warmth of the sun, though it’s the middle of the night, in the dead of winter.

I ‘m feeling it in the air hoping to soon be there, starting to feel the breeze speak to me ∙ And it’s everywhere I go now, speeding up and slowing down, seeping into my skin again ∙ Spring fever again, just when I needed a friend, I thought winter just would not end, now it’s spring fever again ∙ Old trading for the new, bidding the past adieu, new coming on the scene with the spring ∙ Changing my view of the world now, magnificent flag unfurling, fearless winds they blow, new seeds to sow ∙ Dark changing to light, day comes out of night, I’m seeing the beautiful sight and I’m feeling alright ∙ And it’s everywhere I go now, speeding up and slowing down, seeping into my skin again ∙ Changing my view of the world now, magnificent flag unfurling, fearless winds they blow, new seeds to sow ∙ Spring fever again, just when I needed a friend, I thought winter just would not end, now it’s spring fever again ∙ Spring fever again, just when I needed a friend, I thought winter just would not end, now it’s spring fever again ∙ Spring fever again ∙ Spring fever again ∙ Spring again



Lovin’ This ∙ Tami René
Under the cover of dusk, sometimes magic happens.

Under the cover of dusk after the sun has retired, under the light of the moon as you look into my eyes ∙ Falling for you is so easy under the midnight sun, like a meteor shower in the summer, I go to pieces when we are one ∙ And you’re so careful with my love, and you’re so tender with your touch, and you’re so wild with your kiss, I’m lovin’ this ∙ Under the blanket of dark, wrapped in the arms of your love, under the light of the stars as you hold my heart next to yours ∙ Calling for you is so simple, the sigh that escapes with my breath, like a whisper that fills the atmosphere, my secrets are laid to rest ∙ And you’re so careful with my love, and you’re so tender with your touch, and you’re so wild with your kiss, I’m lovin’ this is how I always dreamed it would be, with someone who finds the light in me ∙ Under the dusk and under the light, under the sun and under the night ∙ The sun has retired as you look in my eyes, the darkness has fallen and so have I, falling for you is so easy under the cover of dusk ∙ And you’re so careful with my love, and you’re so tender with your touch, and you’re so wild with your kiss, I’m lovin’ this ∙ And you’re so careful with my love, and you’re so tender with your touch, and you’re so wild with your kiss, I’m lovin’ this



Dirt Road (Brown Eyes) ∙ Tami René
Finding a secret haven to escape to, and the joy of bringing along a loyal friend.

He goes walking with brown eyes down the old dirt road, miles and miles and miles they go, sharing secrets that no one else knows as they go walking on the old dirt road ∙ The one you can count on, the one who is there when you are crying, rich or poor right or wrong brown eyes sings your song ∙ And now he’s running with brown eyes down the old dirt road, miles and miles and miles they go, sharing secrets that no one else knows, as they go running on the old dirt road ∙ And a friend is a friend, they’re always there, they always care, up or down smile or frown, brown eyes sings your song ∙ The one you can count on, the one who is there when you are crying, rich or poor right or wrong, brown eyes sings your song ∙ And now he’s walking with brown eyes down the old dirt road, miles and miles and miles come rain or snow, helping each other as they, as they go walking on the old dirt road ∙ The one you can count on, the one who is there when you are crying, rich or poor right or wrong, brown eyes sings your song ∙ Man’s best friend is a friend, they’re always there, they always care, up or down smile or frown, brown eyes sings your song.



Paint Me ∙ Tami René
To the love of my life. You paint me well.

Paint me a picture of a love that’s going right, paint me a picture of the smile in your eyes ∙ Oh the moonlight on your skin, and we begin ∙ Sculpt me a statue of two lovers in the night, sculpt a creation of how you do it right ∙ Oh your hands mold me with your love, a statue of us ∙ And you blend your colors with mine, and your magic love makes me shine ∙ Like a goddess in some ancient tale, you paint me well ∙ Paint me a treasure of your love my whole life through, paint me an image of this moment here with you ∙ You’ve created this love in me, don’t ever leave ∙ And you blend your colors with mine, and your magic love makes me shine ∙ Like a goddess in some ancient tale, you paint me well ∙ And you blend your colors with mine, and your magic love makes me shine ∙ Like a goddess in some ancient tale, you paint me well ∙ Like a goddess in some ancient tale, you paint me well ∙ You paint me well.

Magnificent Album!!
"Ghost Town" is a truly remarkable creation! Tami Rene has a unique voice and her poetry is second to none. This is one of those rare albums that you can listen to in its entirety and have a new experience each time you do. My favorite songs are: "Paint Me" and "Lovin' This." They echo the feelings I have for my soulmate. My suggestion: turn off the phone, turn down the lights, light a candle, and enjoy the musical journey.

Michael O'Neil

Awesome First Album
I like the whole album. It has been impossible for me to choose a favorite because it changes each time I listen. There's a great variety of music for one album and she's hot too!
