Fly Away

Fly Away
Come fly away with me, come fly so high and far away with me,
Leave your worries all behind use the theatre of your mind,
And fly away, far away with me,
Let’s take a ride and defy all reality,
We can kiss the sky and see what the eagles see
There’s a whole new world to explore,
We can open so many doors,
Just fly away, far away with me,
And in the morning you’ll wake up with a smile,
And you’ll know, it’s more than just a dream.
(Instrumental)
Let me welcome you with open arms into my dream,
Let me take your hand I’ll show you sights you won’t believe,
Cause there’s some magic way up here,
All your troubles will disappear,
Just fly away, far away with me,
And in the morning you’ll wake up with a smile, and you’ll know,
It’s more than just a dream.
(Instrumental)
Come fly away far away with me,
Won’t you fly away far away with me, ya,
Come fly away high away with me ya, just fly away
Far away with me...

Found A Way Home

Found a Way Home
How can this be, we both work so hard and barely make ends meet,
Through all this time we stood our line, counted nickels saved our dimes,
Money would come and just like that it would go,
Remember my dream where I swore I’d make us rich beyond our needs,
And my blue guitar would take us far I’d be playing songs for movie stars,
Well, came back down to reality,
But look how far we’ve come, look at all we’ve done.
The road ahead might twist and turn and fade away but we’ve always found a way home,
Ya, we’ve always found a way home.
(Instrumental)
I’m not ashamed, I can wear the same old blue jeans every day,
And we may not have a place of our own.
But the things we’ve got are the things we love and maybe that’s all we really need,
I think I understand, that there never really was a master plan,
If we live our life one day at a time everything will be just fine
And never forget our journey to here,
Cause look how far we’ve come, look at all we’ve done.
The road ahead might twist and turn and fade away but we’ve always found a way home.
Ya we’ve always found a way home,
Ya we’ve always found a way home.

Gone Before Your Eyes

Gone Before Your Eyes

Passed you on the street, our eyes did meet
And I said hello, and you smiled.
I shoulda turned around, made some kind of sound
So I could talk to you if only for a while.
It’s a chance we take, it’s our bed we make
And we will determine where are fortunes lie.
So take that chance, show up to the dance
Before the moments gone before your eyes.

Heard the other day, and old friend had passed away
And he was taken long before his time.
I shoulda picked up the phone, if only to say hello
But man I never, I never made the time.
Its just the way it is, we take more then we give
And we take for granted, the simple things in life.
I think I’m gonna slow down, take a longer look around
Before these moments are gone before my eyes.
Sooo take that chance, always show up to the dance
Before the moments gone before your eyes.

Passed you on the street
Our eyes did meet
And I said hello…and you smiled.

I Believe

I Believe
Ever since I was a child I dreamed there’s something more out there for me,
Somewhere deep inside a hunger to survive to be the best that I can be
And one day soon I’m gonna some day,
Someday all the world will see,
Someday soon I’m gonna leave this all behind
And live my dream cause I believe....
(Instrumental)
I paid all my dues and I put in the time,
I know my day is near,
Pushed through all the pain fell down got up again,
Showed no mercy no fear,
Look into my eyes a fire’s burnin bright,
I want a taste of victory,
Don’t stand in my way,
Cause I am not afraid to bring to life a childhood dream.
And one day soon I’m gonna someday,
Someday all the world will see,
Someday soon I’m gonna leave this all behind
Live my dream cause I believe...
Someday soon, I’m gonna someday soon, someday all the world will see,
Someday soon I’m gonna someday soon, someday everyone will see,
(Instrumental)
Ever since I was a child I dreamed there’s something more out there for me,
Somewhere deep inside a hunger to survive to be the best that I can be,
And one day soon I’m gonna someday,
Someday all the world will see,
Someday soon I’m gonna leave this all behind,
Live my dream cause I believe...
Someday soon I’m gonna someday soon, someday all the world will see,
Someday soon I’m gonna someday soon, someday everyone will see, x2
YA!

Biography:


.Ranjit Singh (a.k.a. Ranj!) makes music with a distinct Indian-Western flair that draws on the singer-songwriter and self-taught guitarist's love for rock music and heartfelt lyrics. He refers to his unique blend of music as “Indo-Canadian Folk”.

Ranj has wrapped up work on his third album, the acoustic The Man Cold featuring his signature melodies and distinctive “up-stroke” riffs from his 12-string guitar.

Ranj's liner notes from Found a Way Home Ranj's liner notes from Found a Way Home Ranj began his performing career in the mid-80's with Harbhajan Mann and Gursewak Mann. In the 90's he played with his brothers in the award-winning group Dal Dil Vog (winners of CFOX's “Vancouver Seeds 9” battle of the bands in 1994), where he performed with artists such as Jan Arden, 54-40 and Matthew Good. The band performed live on MuchMusic, toured throughout North America and India, and had videos that appeared on MuchMusic and MTV Asia.

After Dal Dil Vog disbanded, Ranj recorded a solo album titled Simple Man in 2008. He later brought together a group of talented musicians to form his next band, The Discriminators, with whom he recorded and released 2011's Found a Way Home, which delivered thoughtful lyrics and music that was inspired by Ranj's life and his legendary mentors, Neil Young and the late Indian ghazal singer Jagjit Singh.

More recently Ranj has returned to music as a solo artist, following his recovery from a serious vehicle collision. He's stronger than ever and happy to be pursuing his passion for music again, often collaborating with former band members and other talented musicians to meet the needs of a given venue, event, or project.
