about

Songs for Aidan Volume 2 commemorates Aidan finishing active treatment for Ewing's Sarcoma. He's gone through nearly 11 months of chemotherapy and 6 weeks of radiation since his diagnosis last September 21, 2012. We feel this set of songs tells Aidan's story well and we are so proud to be able to present this collaborative effort.

Our family is heading into a new phase of our lives. We are hopeful, optimistic, guarded, and terrified all at the same time. We know that it isn't always going to be easy, but we feel that we will make it just the same. We take comfort that we will always have the songs that so many wonderful people sent to us to lift our spirits.

We offer our deepest gratitude to the artists featured on this album. More than just these great songs, they have all offered support, love and friendship to our family and have helped make such a difficult journey easier to bear.

We also extend sincerest thanks to Louie Earl for bringing the concept we had for the artwork for Songs for Aidan to life and completely surpassing our expectations. Thanks also to Andrew Stanton who provided the incredibly unique artist portraits for Volume 2. Andrew is an exceptional graphic designer and we appreciate his efforts.

Special thanks also to Adam at Breakpoint Mastering. Adam once again volunteered his services to master these songs and make them sound fantastic.

Track Name: Tinfeathers - Live, Laugh, Love In Color
Blowing bubbles
filled with colors
they burst in the bright blue sky
i'll be dreaming of you
for a lifetime or two
you always find a way to make me smile
Pre-chorus:
while everybody else is busy buttoning up
we'll be pulling out the rug from the world
Chorus:
we live, we laugh and we love in color
You taste of candy
so sugar sweet
i drink you in to wash it down
you're flooding my heart
i'm splashing around
i'm drowning and i never wanna get out
Pre-chorus
while everybody else is busy tidying up
we'll be shooting fireworks over the sun
Chorus
Track Name: Logan Vath - Colors
Well I have seen the red of June
follow my voice through songs I sing to you
and I hope you hear them too.
Sunset spread, laid out like paint,
run to the river where I see red again
and blue is flowing in the bed.

Colors take me away, you know?
To a special little little place of my own.
I miss the blue of my summer skies and miss the leaves and the green of my home.

Lincoln fall, I wait for them all.
Orange filled streets and the leaves and the birds they call
for somewhere south they can go.
The fire's red, like shame it spreads
across the plains where we hope to grow again
and find a spot we can wed.

Colors take me away, you know?
To a special little little place of my own.
I miss the blue of my summer skies and miss the gleam from the green in your eyes.
Track Name: Kailynn West - You Get What You Give
Wake up kids
We've got the dreamers disease
Age 14 we got you down on your knees
So polite, you're busy still saying please
Fri-enemies, who when you're down ain't your friend
Every night we smash their Mercedes-Benz
First we run and then we laugh till we cry

[chorus]
But when the night is falling
and you cannot find the light
If you feel your dream is dying
Hold tight
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget you only get what you give

Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile
were flat broke but hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God's flying in for your trial

[chorus]

This whole damn world can fall apart
You'll be ok follow your heart
You're in harms way
I'm right behind
Now say you're mine

[chorus]
Track Name: The Danzas - Invisible Mohawk
Sometimes I can’t get out of bed
Sometimes I have to shave my head
Sometimes I want to play instead
Sometimes I think I’m going crazy

Sometimes it’s worth a second look
Don’t judge the cover by the book
Sometimes they stop and stare and gawk
But they’ll never see

My Invisible Mohawk
Invisible Mo-ho-hawk
Invisible Mohawk
Invisible Mo-ho-hawk

Sometimes I stumble and I fall
Sometimes I rise up strong and tall
Sometimes I understand it all
Sometimes I think I’m going crazy

Sometimes I know it’s within me
To make the most and be happy
Sometimes they stop and stare and gawk
But they’ll never see

My Invisible Mohawk
Invisible Mo-ho-hawk
Invisible Mohawk
Invisible Mo-ho-hawk

My Invisible Mohawk
Invisible Mo-ho-hawk
Invisible Mohawk
Invisible Mo-ho-hawk
Track Name: Robert DeStefano - Song For A Boy
And the boy wakes starkly, shivers in the dark He
Seeks the welcome home of candle glow.
Places all his games and notebooks in a row,
Shakes his best friend's paw as if to say 'hello.'

One more day when time drips slowly, firmly
On the face of joy, still he knows what to do.
Run away to places where the trees and flowers
Shout his name out in trumpets bold and blue.

Now the boy sees paths of Lego's leading to the sun,
And so the boy builds castles big enough for everyone.
Track Name: Reluctant Dragon - Home
Alabama Arkansas I do love my Ma and Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Well holy moly me oh my
You’re the apple of my eye
Girl I've never loved one like you

Man o man you're my best friend
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain't nothing that I need

Hot and heavy pumpkin pie
Chocolate candy Jesus Christ
Ain't nothing please me more than you

[Chorus:]
Home, let me come home
Home is wherever I'm with you
Home, let me come home
Home is wherever I'm with you

La la la la
Take me home
Mama I'm coming home

I follow you into the park,
Through the jungle, through the dark
Girl I've never loved one like you

Moats and boats and waterfalls,
Alleyways and payphone calls
I been everywhere with you

Laugh until we think we'll die,
Barefoot on a summer night
Never could be sweeter than with you

And in the streets you run afree,
Like it's only you and me,
Geeze, you're something to see.

[Chorus]

La la la la
Take me home
Baby, I'm coming home
