about

Time to Fly is my 2nd solo album that has been in the making since 2012. With the nudge from a few friends, I took on the challenge of producing three of my works for the very first time; 'Time to Fly,' 'Hey Mom', and 'Christmas Song'.

Grandma, Time to Fly is for you. I miss you so much! Until we meet again.....

Hey Mom, You've always been my biggest cheerleader when I chose music as my career at age six. Thank you for standing beside me all those years.
And now, I stand beside you...I love you SO MUCH!

Peter R. You took my songs and made them SO much better! Thank you! I look forward to working with you again!

Dianne M. I owe you So much!! Thank you friend. One day...I will take that trip again, and when I do, there's a stop on the way! Hugz!

Vladimir T. I am amazed at your talent and truly enjoyed our collaborations! Thank you for giving Summer Love such a FUN & Popping Sound! Wow!

Frank I. It's been a few years now since you left Alaska, and I miss not working with you in the studio. But, you taught me SO much! Rock on! ...or is it, "You're the Shizzle!" Lol!

Robert S. Thank you for your Sublime guitar work on Hey Mom... and especially Christmas Song! I'm in Awe..... Really!

Alexander K. You produced songs around my voice and style wishes. Your creativeness made me work harder and opened a whole new genre for me. I was always excited to work on that 'new' song, and.....we only had one more production to go... and you were So Proud of it! I can only hope that I can measure up and finish it for you.....
**Note; Our music community lost a great talent upon hearing Alexander Kuzmin and his wife tragically passed away in a car wreck in Ukraine 2013. His music will live on...

And lastly, God's been very good to me. It's too easy to leave Him out of the credits, but I won't.....Thank you Jesus.

I looked to the sky
when you said good-bye
tears filled up my eyes
so I just cried
As you left
in one last breath
(CHORUS)
Ahh Put on your wings it's time to fly
So high you'll never come down
Ahh Lift up your wings
and aim real high and you'll
be heavenly bound
(SOLO)
Memories fill your photographs
as I turn each page
All the things you touched
left behind
time to rearrange
Grief is the pain that we start with today
Time is our friend when it slowly fades away
We're left behind but we'll be ok
Time is our friend when it slowly fades away
I'll miss you
I loved you too
(CHORUS)
Ahh Put on your wings it's time to fly
So high you'll never come down
Ahh Lift up your wings
and aim real high and you'll
be heavenly bound

Ahh Put on your wings it's time to fly
So high you'll never come down
Ahh Lift up your wings
and aim real high and you'll
be heavenly bound
*whispered*
Good-bye........................
Track Name: Upside Down
© 2012 RingoLake Music BMI

I feel blue
Baby, you said you feel it too
one more kiss
Baby know that
your heart and touch I will miss
And I don't think that I can bear to watch you
(Chorus)
Walk away
Not today
And leave me standing
Don't walk away
My heart's sad
You've turned me Upside Down

Me and you
Baby, ocean's wide will come between us two
I'll be here
waiting for you
God Speed to you and my heart goes there too
And even though I must let go don't
(Chorus)
Walk away
Not today
And leave me standing
Don't walk away
My heart's sad
You've turned me Upside Down
Solo
(Bridge)
World's away I feel you
Time and space between the blue
You said to me, I miss you
Send me happy endings

I love you
Baby, you said you love me too
One last kiss
Baby know that
Your heart and touch I will miss
And you have turned me Upside Down
Track Name: Hey Mom

Hey Mom
The smile on your face
Can light up the sun
Hey Hey Mom
God made you for us
Cause you were the one
Who wiped our tears and made us smile
when something did us wrong
You loved us through all our trials in life
It only made us strong
yes it did

Hey Hey Mom
Why did we have to grow up
When young was so fun?
Hey Hey Mom
Look at all your grandkids
My! Where's the time gone
If Dad were here you know he'd smile
And tell us, "Carry On!"
This is life and we're living it
Today will soon be gone
Yes, it will
Bridge
Years pass by and kids grow up
And we get older too
Blessings never cease to end
Because we all have you
We love you, Yes we do
Hey Hey Mom
I sure enjoyed our time in the desert fun
Hey Hey Mom
Thanks for joining me in the midnight sun
In all the time I spent with you
I'd only add one thing
We'll just make more picture memories
And tape them on that string
For old times
For all time
*Oh, Mom... I sure enjoyed our time together last year. You're a lot of fun to hang around with! And the memories...well they just kept coming in.
We both laughed and remembered when I was eight, how I got mad, slammed the door a little too hard..and ran outside with you fast on my heels.
We did circles around the rose bush. And we know what came after that.
Mom, you're one special lady, and just know that we love you.
Track Name: Summer Love
© 1991 RingoLake Music BMI

Good-bye babe,
our summer love has come to an end.
I feel like I have lost my best friend,
and while you're gone, I'll miss you.
And Darlin' remember how we laughed till we cried,
It only hurts when we say good-bye
I'll see again next summer

(Chorus)
The colors have changed, the leaves are starting to fall
The telephone lines replace your touch with a call
When summer arrives we'll start all over again
and next time I swear you won't be leaving me then.

It's winter. I'm thinking of you while you're away
I feel you kiss my tears away. You seem so close when I need you
Come summer, I pray to all the stars in the sky
that our love will never die
You're in my heart forever.

(Chorus)
Three seasons have gone, we both still feel the same
Phone calls won't do for what I'm needing to say.
When summer arrives we'll start all over again.
And next time I swear you won't be leaving me then.
Next time I swear you won't be leaving me then,

(Solo)

(Bridge)
Now that the leaves have all turned to brown, I'm missing you baby cause you're not around.
Grant me one wish I promise to make it clear. So long to the winter, may spring soon be here.

(Chorus)
Three seasons have gone, we both still feel the same.
Phone calls won't do for what I'm needing to say.
When summer arrives we'll start all over again.
And next time I swear you won't be leaving me then,
next time I swear you won't be leaving me then
next time I know, you'll never leave me again

You left me here running around
No longer do I feel safe and sound
Stumbling on your favorite blue shirt
Can't keep in all of this hurt
I loved you way too much
Now I cry for your touch
That no longer comes my way
No matter how I beg you to stay
CHORUS
I kept something to make me smile
A picture of you holding me
A memory of what we used to be

Into my bed I crawl alone
I still smell your cologne
Just a week since you said good-bye
All my tears have yet to dry
It feels my body with such distress
Turning me into a total mess
You didn't think what it'd do to me
All you wanted was to be free
CHORUS
I kept something to make me smile
A picture of you holding me
A memory of what we used to be
SOLO
So being stupid
I opened the door
I let you in and cried some more
I closed it shut and I heard you leave
Footsteps walking away from me.
You say we weren't meant to be
How do you dare you say that to me!
I hold my broken heart in my hands
Keep it together the best I can
CHORUS
I kept something to make me smile
A picture of you holding me
A memory of what we used to be
Track Name: The Last Bridge

Hear the pain that's in my words
As we walk on our separate shores
The waves will wash us all away
How you once loved me
You really did love me

That vacant look that's in your eyes
Silently you leave my heart behind
When words unsaid betray your truth
And you're burning our bridge
Yes, you'll burn that last bridge

As I stand on the shore
thinking how this must seem
I want to go back
to when you were with me
But we'll never go back
To the way we once were
When you stand at arm's length
And you burn that last bridge

I think I'm just another fool
Believing what I thought was true
Your silence gives your heart away
She's over there where your eyes stare

Do I just walk and let you go?
Sometimes yes and sometimes no
I let you play me for the fool
And you're burning our bridge
Yes, you're burning that bridge

As I stand on the shore
thinking how this must seem
I want to go back
to when you were with me
But we'll never go back
To the way we once were
When you stand at arm's length
And you burn that last bridge

* You didn't really think this thing through, did ya? Do you even know what you're losing? I didn't think so.

As I stand on the shore
thinking how this must seem
I want to go back
to when you were with me
But we'll never go back
To the way we once were
When you stand at arm's length
And you burn that last bridge
Track Name: Dream
Dream, my nightly holiday
take me places I've never been
Dream, in it you found me here
Lookin like I needed a friend.

Once every night when I close my eyes
and let my worries all become dim
Weave me a path through this fantasy
Time to let this dream begin
Chorus
In this dream I'm with you
And you hold me
As we walk through this maze
Deep in the night
And as I look at you
You become fainter
'Cause it's really not you
You're just my dream

Hey take me up higher where
Angels fly up higher than Mars
See, and meet me over where
Kisses number more than the stars

Somewhere outside this reality
I know I've seen you somewhere before
Under the stars in the galaxy
I think I saw you outside my door

Chorus
In this dream I'm with you
And you hold me
As we walk through the maze
Deep in the night
And as I look at you
You become fainter
But it's really not you
You're just my dream
Bridge
In the misty haze
I know you'll find me
Searching for me into the night
When you find me there
You're arms surround me
We'll go walking into the light

In this world I see you
Though you don't see me
When I'm talking to you
You don't hear
What would I say to you
Given this moment
Would it all be so perfectly clear

Chorus
In this dream I'm with you
And you hold me
As we walk through this maze
Deep in the night
And as I look at you
You become fainter
'Cause it's really not you
You're just my dream

In this dream I'm with you
And you hold me
As we walk through this maze
Deep in the night
And as I look at you
You become fainter
'Cause it's really not you
You're just my dream
In this dream I'm with you
I could love you
But it's really not you
You're just a dream
