Track Name: Waking
Oh these covers envelope me
I could stay here all day
Just sleeping, dreaming
This Sunday away

Oh but you have risen
The music drifts through these walls
Leading me to wakefulness
Leading me from these dreams
From my dreams

And so I rise
And I wander these halls and corridors
Seeking you
I find you here, I find you here
I find you here and I find you here
I will always find you, always find you here
I will always find you, always find you here
Track Name: Strangers
She can hear his heart beat and his breathing in her ear
How can she be this close to someone without fear
She listens to the clock it’s ticking 3am
However good this is she can’t stay
Got to go again

She’s got her bag and put’s her clothes back on
She kisses his cheek and then she tiptoes ‘cross the floor
Closes the door quietly and hopes he wont awake
To read the cheap note she’s left to explain

Strangers in the night
Together they’ll never see the day
Never see the day

Well she’s on the road she’s leaving town
Radio’s blaring, country pie
She runs her fingers through the knots in her hair
Shields her eyes from another headlight’s glare

Strangers in the night
Together they’ll never see the day
Never see the day

She wonders if he could be the one
To stop what she calls her wicked ways
She wonders if there could be gold at the end of a rainbow
Just waiting for her to claim

She can’t understand why her heart is aching
She can’t stop thinking ‘bout his smile
It never used to be this hard to leave them
And the trail of broken hearts
it goes back miles

Strangers in the night
Together they’ll never see the day
Never see the day

She can hear his heartbeat and his breathing in her ear
How can she be this close to someone without fear
She listens to the clock it’s ticking 3am
However good this is she can’t stay
Got to go again
Track Name: Here
I miss you when you’re far away
Lose my thread on time and space
It’s funny how you still grip me
I’ve still got my sights set on you

I wonder if you can still see it
Does it still shine from my eyes
Or do you have to search for it
Hidden within these lines

It’s here
This love, our love
It’s still here
This love, our love
It’s still here

Wrap ourselves up in the cold of winter
We could lose our selves in this place
Of you and me and no one else
You still make me feel like I won the main race

I wonder if you can still see it
Does it still shine from my eyes
Or do you have to search for it
Hidden within these lines

It’s here
This love, our love
It’s still here
This love, our love
It’s still here
Track Name: Blue Eyes
You’ve got the prettiest smile
I ever did see
And you can just stay awhile
Just to please me

You’ve got the bluest eyes
this side of the sea
And if you’ll just look my way
I’ll be good company

After all this time
You still kill me
Slay me with a smile
I would do anything
For you to be with me
Track Name: Autumn
Autumn’s on the morning air
Feels like the end of summer’s here
Red and gold they’ll fall like tears
These autumn leaves

Winter he will come again
Dark days and freezing rains
We’ll hide away inside
Till the spring

I hope you found a little warmth in here
To keep you
I hope you found a little warmth in here
To keep you through these autumn tears

Summer’s turned her face from me
Left me on a chilling breeze
Of frozen breath and crunching leaves
Under feet

Oh I am a summer child
Worship while the sun does shine
The feel of warmth
Upon my skin

I hope you’ve kept a little warmth in there
To keep you
I hope you’ve kept a little warmth in there
To keep you through these winter years

Autumn’s on the morning air
Feels like the end of summer’s here
Red and gold they’ll fall like tears
These autumn leaves

If I had the money and the time
I’d follow where summer’s face does shine
Around the world
Around the world

I hope you’ve found a little warmth in here
To keep you
I hope you’ve found a little warmth in here
To keep you through these autumn tears
Track Name: Stolen Crown
I once had a prince
He had hair of crimson
Skin so fair
Eyes like a stormy sea

He spoke of my beauty
and his love for me
In all ways he was true
Till one day he travelled
to a land across the sea

He said he had to go alone
To see just what he could see
Had to find the jewel in his heart
Before he could crown me as his queen

Before long he was lonesome
Such a mistake had never been
He said to journey away
From his land and from me

I used to visit him there
Just two days or three
At Christmas he returned
With perfumes, silver and silks for me


When he went back I was hopeful
That time would not pass too slow
Then my prince would return
and claim me for his own

One day he returned
He did not come for me
Now he shall be king alone
And I shall never be his queen

An empty vessel am I
Alone with this sorrow in me
I wish my prince
Had never travelled
To that land across the sea

For it stole all his love from me
It stole all his love from me

I once had a prince
He had hair of crimson
Skin so fair
Eyes like a stormy sea
Track Name: Tide
All I ask is that you move me
Fill this heart of mine till it overflows
Like a river in flood
Rushing with emotion
Lost on this tide could you carry me
Like a river to the sea

And why should we stand still
Accept that this is it
When there’s so much more if we just let it
I want so much more baby if you’ll give it

All I ask is that you move me
Fill this heart of mine till it overflows
Like a river in flood
Rushing with emotion
Lost on this tide could you carry me
Like a river to the sea

Could you hold me in your hands
Catch my colours in the light

Or you could throw me to the sea
Lose me in the inky depths
Like I could lose myself in you
In you

Like I could just lose myself in you
Would you take it if I give it
Would you carry me
Like a river to the sea
Floating out on the tide

All I ask is that you move me
Fill this heart of mine till it overflows
Like a river in flood
Rushing with emotion
Lost on this tide could you carry me
Like a river to the sear

I’m floating out on the tide
Track Name: Stars
The stars are bright tonight
I get home and you’re sleeping
I want to wake you up
But stories of tonight
they will keep till morning
Track Name: She Melts This Heart
Oh she melts this heart
Where there were frozen wastes
Full of the hurt of broken hearts
She shines a light
With a sideways glance
And softens all hardness with her spark

Oh she fills this heart with hope
Where it was drifting offshore
Full of the bitterness of unrealised dreams
She shines a light
With a single smile
And fills this heart up with her laugh

Everything was faded
Just jaded and tired from a reckless youth
She embodies everything I’ve hoped for
All I’ve ever dreamed
Some kind of beauty rarely ever seen

Oh she melts this heart
Where there were shattered fragments
Full of the regret of things gone past
She shines a light
With a single glance
And heals this heart with her love
She heals this heart up with her love
Track Name: Rumours
I find I’m laughing at myself again
Only this time there’s a different pain
As the rain slashes at my face
And the wind tugs at my hair
I wonder where you are
And why you’re not here

You should know by now darling
The way that rumours fly
The way that people exaggerate
Turning things into lies
And you should know by now darling
The scandalous things they say
Because I’ve heard recently
That’s what’s keeping you away

I don’t know why I’m laughing at myself
When I’m wishing I was somewhere else
This weather kind of fits my mood
There’s a big black cloud hanging overhead
Are you laughing at me
Still calling me the fool

You should know.....

I’m thinking darling we should talk this through
Would you please stop ignoring me
There’s so many things I’ve got to say to you
So many things we forgot to do

You should know.....

It’s only rumours
It’s only rumours
It’s just rumours, it’s rumours
Keeping you away
It’s just rumours, it’s rumours
Keeping you away
Keeping you away
