Hem's, "Great Houses of New York"
The Lyrics:
Fast asleep
Safe behind the window shades
Dreaming of the Palisades
Where we used to meet
The Palisades, NY

Hem's, "Reservoir"
The Lyrics:
The sun in California, it drops right into the sea
I took a couple pictures; they don't mean that much to me
But just outside Pittsburgh, I saw it from my car
The light shines to the bottom of the reservoir
The moon hung on a hillside in eastern Tennessee
With rows of honeysuckle blooming over me
But the iron hills of Pittsburgh, where all my memories are
Gather in light around the reservoir
Pittsburgh, PA
eastern Tennessee

Hem's, "The Hills Stopped Working"
The Lyrics:
Ain't holding out for a miracle now
Just holding out for the water
Across a bridge that will carry me down
To the Santa Rosa Spanish Quarter
Santa Rosa's Spanish Quarter
