I think the material is excellent. I’ve benefited so much. I’ve now begun to improvise with some confidence and have written songs that feel authentic. I can now develop musically in a broad and rich way. Your work has illuminated an exciting path forward.– Roger

Once in your life you’ll find her
Someone who turns your heart around
And next thing you know you’re closing down the town

Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her way across town
Wondering to yourself hey what have I found

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do, the best that you can do
Is fall in love

Arthur, he does as he pleases
All of his life his master’s toys and deep in his heart he’s just
He’s just a boy

Living his life one day at a time
He’s showing himself a pretty good time
He’s laughing about the way they want him to be

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do, the best that you can do
Is fall in love

||: When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do, the best that you can do
Is fall in love :||
