The music begins with six instrumentals. The third selection has a false start, cuts off, and begins again.

Song 7:

(Male singer) Run to the sunset hand in hand
A lonely beach
The warmth of her laughter
This is the place and time you’d rather be
Not for now
Forever after
When you think of the beginning
When your love is true
The joy and the sorrow
Are feelings that are true
This day we’ll be together
For as it goes
Love becomes impressions in the diary of your mind
Love becomes a precious gem so hard to find
When you think of filling all the spaces in your life
Lonely places in your life
You think of her
You think of her

(Musical interlude)

When you think of filling all the spaces in your life
And when you stand to the silent invitations of her eyes
You draw her near to make sweet love
Till the sound begins to rise
You know just how to touch each other
In your body, mind and soul.
There is no greater ecstasy

(Musical interlude)

Run to the sunset hand in hand
A lonely beach
The warmth of her laughter
This the place and time you’d rather be
Not just for now
But ever after
When you think of the beginning
When your love is true
The joy and the sorrow
Are feelings that’s true
This day we’ll be together
For as it goes
Love becomes impressions in the diary of your mind
Love becomes a precious gem so hard to find
When you think of filling all the spaces in your life
Lonely places in your life
You think of her
Oh yeah

(Musical interlude)

And when you stand to the silent invitations of her eyes
You draw her near to make sweet love
To the sound begins to rise
You know just how to touch each other
In your body, mind and soul.
There is no greater ecstasy
Than when love has taken hold
In these days
For as it goes
Love becomes impressions in the diary of your mind
Love becomes a precious gem so hard to find
When you think of filling all the spaces in your life
Lonely places in your life
Oh, you think of her
Well well well well
Keep on running
Through your mind
Keep on running
Through your mind
Think of her
Through your mind

Song 8:

Summertime
And the livin’ is easy,
Fish are jumpin’
And the cotton is high.
Your daddy’s rich
An’ yo’ mama’s good lookin’
So hush, little baby,
Don’t you cry.
One of these mornin’s,
I’m gonna rise, rise up singin’
Then I’ll spread my wings
An’ I’ll take to the sky.
But until that mornin’ comes, mornin’ comes, mornin’ comes, mornin’ comes,
There’s ain’t nothin’ gonna harm me
With my Mama and Daddy
Standin’ by.

Song 9:

Guyana is so beautiful to me
Guyana is so beautiful, yes it is, to me
Yes, I see,
It’s everything I’d ever hoped for
And it’s everything to me
Guyana is so so beautiful to me
I wanna say it again
Guyana is so beautiful, when I look around,
When I look around, to me
Guyana is so beautiful, every day, mmmm, to me
Yes, I see,
It’s everything I’d ever hoped for
And it’s everything everything everything to me
Guyana is so beautiful
I wanna say it again
Guyana is so beautiful
If you know what I mean
Guyana is so beautiful
I wanna clap my hands
Guyana is so-
One more time, one more time, one more time
Guyana is so beautiful to me.
To me, yeah yeah.

Song 10:

(false start, or double taped, song starts again)
I’ll make the first step
And you will make the next
We’ll join hands the farther we go
The hills may sometimes seem hard for you to climb
But I know we can make it if we try
We’ll go on for years
(unintelligible line)
We’ll live together in peace
I’ll make the first step
And I know you, you will make the next
And we’ll join hands the farther we go
The hills may sometimes seem hard for you, you to climb
But I know we’re gonna make it by and by
Oh, (two unintelligible lines)
To live together in peace.

He freed a lot of people but the good, they die young
I just looked around and he was gone.

Oh, he freed a lot of people but the good, they die young
I looked around and he was gone.
