Track Name: Away
Love a good revolt, Care enough to strike
Fly to your deep roots, Release while holding tight, Away

White lies in name of truth, eyes wide as a shield
Mouth closed, heart on your sleeve
Right here buy far away, Away

You've heard these thoughts a million times
No need to hide
I'd gladly act the fool with you
My heart is one day to explode
I hope it trickles down in due time

Kiss me over the phone, Reach out while hanging up
Sing to me in deepest sleep, Whisper and feel the earth move

You've heard these thoughts a million times
No need to hide
I'd gladly act the fool with you
My heart is one day to explode
I hope it trickles down in due time

Head inside this place
Feel your sweet embrace
I don't want to go away...

You've heard these thoughts a million times
No need to hide
I'd gladly act the fool with you
My heart is one day to explode
I hope it trickles down in due time
Track Name: A, B, C or D
Only for a day, the only day you`ll pay attention
Like DMC said, should be always in your head
Not next year
What’s in it for us, no minus all plus
Held tightly
A, B, C or D, decided in your tree
Ponder this

I wish that you could see the beauty of my thoughts
So much is lost in the translation

On party lines, voting for your kind
Who for?
What’s in it for me? For the healthy and the free?
All that
Guilty, that’s me
Cornered
Pity, mercy, all I have.

I understand you’ve a lot going on
No time to Fight the fight, see the light
Maybe next year I’ll come running

I wish that you could see the beauty of my thoughts
So much is lost in the translation
Track Name: My Pulse
Some don't know what it is I see in you, I can't explain
I've tried to in words 'til blue in the face
I know, it just won't do
Would I give it all up for your flame burning bright
I would, to capture it
Nothing else can affect me like your touch
The feel of sound

I feel the pulse in my head
It echoes through my being
It bubbles to the surface
Through fingers
Through my voice to all of you
Whether you love, or whether you hate
My passion's most deeply bound
With the strings to tightly wound
Forever lasts the sound, I pray

Ever heard the echo before you said the words
It might be too much
Forgive me if it's all I think about
It's in my veins
Melody, beat, and prose in one
Or at a time
Colourful is this music in my life
May it colour yours

I feel the pulse in my head
It echoes through my being
It bubbles to the surface
Through fingers
Through my voice to all of you
Whether you love, or whether you hate
My passion's most deeply bound
With the strings to tightly wound
Forever lasts the sound, I pray

I feel the pulse in my head
It echoes through my being
It bubbles to the surface
Through fingers
Through my voice to all of you
Whether you love, or whether you hate
My passion's most deeply bound
With the strings to tightly wound
Forever lasts the sound, I pray
Track Name: On From Here
Between these coloured lines, I'm trying
Don't want to see you hurt or trapped
To touch is not to hold, I know now
Please know I don't see you run

Please stay true to yourself, Have faith in that
The path to your heart, Could you walk it blind?
No hand in your hand

You syncopate my will, You syncopate my heart

Somewhere out there, You're looking the other way
On this half mast day, I'm weak
I know it was a while, But I'm thinking
Maybe we were too green, In love

Please stay true to yourself, Have faith in that
The path to your heart, Could you walk it blind?
No hand in your hand

Please stay true to yourself, Have faith in that
The path to your heart
I hope you can walk it blind, On from here
Track Name: They Drove
Told to shut her mouth
How dare she throw her words around, So carelessly

She was one of their own
They say the twisted light of stardom, Owns her soul

They say the cause is just
To cast a net around the whole world, And fill it up

Maybe you, maybe me, They can cast their spells
Hate and misery, And then they all fall down
Happiness won't hold us down

Please stay true my friend
And use your own mind, heart, and pure voice
Keep them up at night

Think of the wounded few
When made unlikely heroes stood up, Not to back down

Maybe you, maybe me, They can cast their spells
Hate and misery, And then they all fall down
Happiness won't hold us down
Track Name: No Pearl
I sit here though the campfire's out
Oh, what a night
The singers have all gone home, I didn't put up a fight

Why is it so hard, To pen something bright

All they wanted was a happy tune
A little Brown Eyed Girl
But then I run away forgetting all the chords
All oyster, no pearl

Why is it easy, To write in a minor key

Why is it easy, To write in a minor key

We derive so much strength
From both the bad times and the great
On my palette I'll create
Whatever shade my thoughts will take
Track Name: Along The Road Ahead
I am where I want to be
Colour in the time between, Every possibility
I will play for you tonight
Got my weapon of choice, can you hear my voice
Do you think it will be alright

My be lost but I want to find
On the business end of a business
That I like with half a mind
Which direction can I turn
To devote my life may cut like a knife, But not before I learn

But I just don't know, Who to turn to
Thoughts no the next wave,
Thoughts on the next wave with you
Thoughts no the next wave,
Thoughts on the next wave with you

All I want is to be blind,
If I know too much or look too hard I'll never find my kind
Don't know which way will take me forth
With all mu luck if I'm headed south, I'll end up going north

But I just don't know, Who to turn to
Thoughts no the next wave,
Thoughts on the next wave with you
Thoughts no the next wave,
Thoughts on the next wave with you

Please forgive if I'm sounding down
Cause I'm skipping along the road ahead
It's you who sees the frown

But I just don't know, Who to turn to
Thoughts no the next wave,
Thoughts on the next wave with you
Thoughts no the next wave,
Thoughts on the next wave with you
Track Name: The Failing Tide
I remember when
Our fields were green
And the water was its blood
Shouldn't live like we're dying
But my fight is gone
Gone with the tide

We didn't waste but now, We only want
One more beat, Of mother's heart

Our day was done
When the pulse was sold
We have no shares
To barter with

When I turned down my mouth
And made my bed
I broke my divining rod
No more skipping stones
No more dip and swing
This is my setting song

We didn't waste but now, We only want
One more beat, Of mother's heart

I wish that I
Could transport these words
To the days gone by
Before 'too late" got hold
Track Name: Thirty-Two
No one said love would be easy
I'll hold you tight if you want me to
Close your eyes you feel lonely
But your family is all right here

You try so hard to capture
Another beam of the light you share
But look deep into his eyes
Take that feeling and run with it

It flew in through the window, Fluttered past the door
Though its beak was empty, You still need more
It flew in through the window, Fluttered past the door
Though its beak was empty, You'll pray some more

I want to tell you both that I love you
Feel the warmth of my broken heart
The strength of people around you
Will bring forth the love that's there

But you've got someone who's special
Wrap your arms around him now
And as his small lips curl upward, May your spirits fly as high

It flew in through the window, Fluttered past the door
Though its beak was empty, You still need more
It flew in through the window, Fluttered past the door
Though its beak was empty, You'll pray some more

It flew in through the window, Fluttered past the door
Though its beak was empty, You still need more
It flew in through the window, Fluttered past the door
Though its beak was empty, You'll pray some more
Track Name: Vows
"You got it all you're fancy free
There's so much you could learn from me
The best years of you life are
When untied, unbroken"
He said to me

But you don't know me, Your majesty
I'll do just fine, I'll walk my own line, all mine
All the time

In my two years I will disagree
There's so much you could learn from me
If you find her, the right one
A soul mate, not cell mate
How rich you'd be

I see your swagger, But I know
That you're just limping
A victim of you own
Washed out sarcasm
Track Name: Black Coffee
Awake before the sun comes up
With time to think about the world
And what's in store for me today
I scheme with no firm plans
Place the ground beneath my feet
It's not that I hate the workweek
But I'm at the helm, king of the boat
Dancing to a song that I wrote
Part edge part flow, to remind me that I'm free

I can see your hands are cold
So come inside
Without the laughter that you bring
I think that I'd cry
Have to share it with another…

I take my coffee black
Safe in the knowing that
The bitterness is confined to a cup
Lighten the corners of my month
And float away
I'm drunk on the liberty
Afforded by my whereabouts
I choose to turn the page
Or do I kick back or find a cure
For whatever ails the world?

I can see your hands are cold
So come inside
Without the laughter that you bring
I think that I'd cry
Have to share it with another…

I can see your hands are cold
So come inside
Without the laughter that you bring
I think that I'd cry
Have to share it with another…
Track Name: Promise (Acoustic Bonus Track)
I know I ran too fast for you
When first I saw the view
But I realized so soon
I'd get caught up in you so tight

I sat there and spun ‘round
Try not to hurt a flower

But for you, I do

Now I know the rain was there for us to grow
Now we're planted in our fields of gold
I look at you ‘cross this bed
I know where we belong

Sit here spinning 'round
I'll try to hold you like I should

Oh, I do…

Sit here spinning 'round
I'll try to hold you like I should
