|Songs on the ‘Common Thread’ Album:|
#1 Common Thread 4:51
This title song tells the story of a seamstress that weaves a beautiful garment. But it serves no purpose
unless there is someone to wear and enjoy it. That is a lot like life, and the common threads that bind us.
#2 Make the Change for Good 3:44
We can work to make good things happen to ourselves and others. It is a choice that we make
ourselves. Which path will we take?
#3 Passage 3:28
With a compelling reggae feel, ‘Passage’ embraces the joy of life today, but expresses the need to
enter the next new adventure with confidence and wonder.
#4 Simple Treasures of Love 3:53
This song hints of Wayne’s influence by the Beatles. As the melody beautifully winds throughout the
song, the theme of enjoying the smallest things in life is artfully laid out.
#5 Mr. Moon 3:29
Who hasn’t look up in the sky and made a wish? This young man is asking the moon to grant his
wish of a romantic night with his lover. And Mr. Moon complies in this interesting love song.
#6 Does This Mean War? 2:52
Is Wayne talking about the choice between war and peace between nations? Or is he referring to a
breakup of a couple? Could be either … and this emotional song asks the jarring question.
#7 Forever Yours 3:20
Gently reminiscent of a McCartney love tune, this song has beautiful harmonies and melodies. It is the
statement of unconditional and unending love.
#8 Stars and Streams 3:01
Upbeat and with a fun Irish feel, ‘Stars and Streams’ takes us on a journey of discovery. As with nature,
some things are best not possessed.
#9 In Prayer 3:57
We don’t have to kneel with a person to pray for them. We can pray for anyone at any time and they can
receive the results. This song has a beautiful key change with orchestration.
#10 Battle of the Sons 4:15
Gut-wrenching and beautiful at the same time, this song tells the story of a family broken apart by the
quarrel of two sons. The ones hurt when siblings fight are often the parents.
#11 Sweet Melody 3:00
The listener is led on a search throughout the song for the lost melody. The song cleverly labels each
verse, chorus and bridge as the song progresses. A deeper listen reveals a sad, true reality.
#12 Today and Tomorrow 3:40
Today and Tomorrow become real people in this alluring song about wasting time. As Today leaves
and Tomorrow arrives, she wishes the newcomer well, but wonders if Tomorrow can survive.
#13 Goodbye 3:33
This breathtaking song is a hard hitting look at the passing of a loved one. ‘Goodbye’ is so hard to say,
but all of us will someday have to say it to someone we love.
