Rajani 02:26
Rajani ©2008, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP) Rajani, your energy is raw and strong on your TaKeTiNability Your personality, your sensuality, raises something more than just my curiosity Rajani, honestly those little emails set of my biology They're more than comedy, this could be chemistry, don't know just yet, but one thing I'll say with certainty is You with a capital Y, and me with a capital I makes me wanna get up and stand up and testify, a wonder why? Rajani, beauty, thank you for this application's opportunity. I can't wait to be in your company, and to explore some footsie and flattery.

Straight Man 03:55
Straight Man ©2012, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP) as a straight man, I ain't threatened by no gay ones as a married man, why are you? all my brother loving brothers, and every sister loving sister whether you call it right or wrong, they're gonna get it on as a single man, I ain't the one to talk of marriage, no but this thing I know: it ain't about the sex and if you ever thought it was, I bet by now you're disappointed it's about love and family marriage is about love and it's about family you talk about God, shouting about abominations But if God is Love, what's with all the hate? And who do you serve by depriving others of love? Why don't you take a good hard look and decide who's side you're on. That's right I said a good hard look to decide who's side you're on. you don't have to like it, no, nobody's making you watch you don't have to teach it, you just teach like you were taught don't gotta like the people, don't think they much like you just get out of the way and let the lovers just do what they do what's it to you? You talk about sin like you know a lot about it You talk about institutions like maybe you belong in one Now I'm from the Left Coast, so I been brought up hippy-crazy I've got these funny notions about freedom and equality I get outta way the way of love, when it don't hurt nobody why don't you get outta the way of love if it ain't hurting nobody? 'cuz if you have to legislate your morals to affirm your faith, you haven't got any you haven't got any

Could Love 04:14
Could Love ©2006, 2012 Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP) I could love so deeply I could love so much I could love so many I could love, so what? What love do I give right now, right now? Which love do I let in? When love's potential starts to spark Do I do more than begin? What loves do I really love? Which loves do I restrain? When love appears in foreign form Do I instead try to be sane? I want to love beyond all reason I want to ride love's waves And yet I seek protection At the chance of being brave I feel the pull, I run away Trying not to run too far Half-loved loves held on too much As all my loves now are What loves do we give right now? Which loves do we let in? When love's potential starts to spark Do you do more than begin? Or do you feel the pull, and run away? Trying not to run too far Half-loved loves held on too much As so many loves are I could love so deeply I could love so much I could love so many I could love, so what?

Much Better 03:01
MUCH BETTER ©2012, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP) I wondered if I'd ever love again If my life was headed any direction Then I let go and I felt much better oh so much better Maybe it'd start with a good fling I thought for certain that I'd see it coming I wanted what I'd dreamed but this is much better oh so much better You didn't hit me like a freight train This isn't even moving in the fast lane Oh but the power our love contains is much better oh so much better oh so much better This love is truly what I've wanted my lifelong And it seems so silly that it's that it took so long to arrive here, right here beside you now everything's better because of you I thought I had to get my ducks in a row and all pieces come together and fit just so but no, I missed that by a long shot still it's much better than I ever thought I was wrong about the hole in my heart I never thought it'd give me a head start It's more than hurt, it's the perfect opening and it works much better for loving Well I thought that love was gonna cure my pain And I wandered round the world and back again Just to find my way back here to you now everything's better with you life is so much better oh so much better

All Ways 03:14
All Ways ©2009, Sam Rogers / Snap Synapse Music (ASCAP) as I think about you like I do now all the time I feel a lot feelings and they all intertwine love, longing, trust, and faith turned on, turned inside-out, and ready to play Seems we're together all the way, in all ways, all ways In my time few people have caught my eye only handful caught my heart of those maybe one or two have satisfied and only you have seen every part in all ways, in all of the ways I can barely take it when you're far away, mmm But I can hold on and carry through into another day, mmm Try and stay focused and work on the work in front of me I just wish you were here right now, as you soon will be It's never been this easy It's never been this drama-free There's never been a question in me That bein' with you is how it's supposed to be always in all of the ways ooh, baby I love your ways ooh, baby I love your ways
