Track Name: Home To The Sky
i'm singing to the flowers
as i wile away the hours
and on a sunny day
my troubles melt away

but come rain or shine
i know it'll be just fine
just as the wheel goes round
and the river rolls on by

the earth is a temporary place
floating in a wondrous space
but one day my soul will go
and begin it's journey home

from nowhere to here
feelings come and disappear
i was born and i'll i die
going home to the sky

like a shooting star
you could travel so far
but soon you'll be part of the sky
part of all in the blink of an eye

i'll carry on down the road
where it leads nobody knows
i'll dance to my own tune
while i'm here under the moon

one day i'll head to the stars
of all i will be a part
but i don't want you to cry
i'm going home to the sky
Track Name: To Be Free
i've been looking for answers
in poetry and hazy dreams
hunting for freedom
from the illusion surrounding me

the sun gives me the hours
which i can ramble and roam
the moon gives me it's time
where my soul is my own

for my life's here in the moment
the only time i have is that i see
nobody holds the answer
so just let it be

all truths i thought i'd found
became a collection of lies
people preaching paradise
with a voice longing to cry

i won't play the game shown to me
life can't be lost or won
the only thing to really fight for
is the freedom of everyone

for my life's here in the moment
the only time i have is that i see
nobody holds the answer
so just let it be

for my life's here in the moment
the only time i have is that i see
nobody holds the answer
so just let it be
Track Name: Because Of You
the days in shutdown
the nights forever lasting
no one has a clue
if love is love and if it is the cause of all their blues
because of you, look just what you do
it's all happening now because of you

the church stands empty
god's window is closed
no one has a clue
if god is good or if he is the saviour of their soul
because of you, look just what you do
it's all happening now because of you

the executioners waiting
there's a tower built to heaven
and no one has a clue
if good or bad can be separated by law
because of you, look just what you do
it's all happening now because of you

the pied piper plays a song
he casts a magic spell
no one has a clue
if following a leader or standing their ground is the thing to do
because of you, look just what you do
it's all happening now because of you
Track Name: If I Wrote You A Song...
if i wrote you a song would you love me forever?
if i gave you my time would love me in timeless hours?
if i gave you a flower would you promise to be true?
if i gave you my heart would you give me yours too?

if i drew you a rainbow would you show me the colour of your soul?
if i waited forever would our love survive a spell?
if i wrote you a poem would you radiate the truth?
if i gave you my heart would you give me yours too?

if i wrote you a melody would you move to it's tune?
if i gave you the sun would you give me the moon?
if i held your hand would you forever be by my side?
if i gave you my heart would you give me yours too?

if i wrote you a song would you love me forever?
if i gave you my time would love me in timeless hours?
if i gave you a flower would you promise to be true?
if i gave you my heart would you give me yours too?
Track Name: The Blues Never Got Me Down
i'm feeling lost in this world, i'm on the lost highway
it was clear that i wanted you but your love pushed me further away
am i on a slippery slope or a path to a higher ground?
i'm walking the same old road wearing my old shoes down
when i open the book, to find what page i'm on
you'll notice i face the devil and all his tempting sins
but the blues never got me down

i'm plagued by distant thoughts, the kind no man wants to think
distant shadows and waiting moon give me all the time to waste
i reach into my back pocket as i stroll from village to town
i pull out all i have, i throw it to the ground
i need nothing at all, just some peace of mind
i will plant a flower, what happens is down to time
but the blues never got me down

the world everyone claims is round but i'm walking in a straight line
i've been shown the truth so much but it all just seems a lie
i was born in the land of the free but i'm watched both night and day
shadows are creeping up, where are you tonight?
it can't be wrong to believe in love anymore
when the thunder claps, i'll embrace the rain when it pours
but the blues never got me down

i find it no trouble to keep on keeping on
when i go on my way, i'll only break the truer hearts
sometimes i find it hard, to tell one day from the next
i'm happy to watch the wheels go by i have no place to be
the world seems in such a hurry to empty out it's soul
i've crossed many bridges and the crossroads are ahead
but the blues never got me down

the sun was shining brightly, felt like i was walking to heaven
i dunno if they'd let me in, i'm sure to have committed a sin
i feel like boarding the next train, follow the night to where it goes
someday baby, you'll forget what you don't yet know
and i have had enough of this, it's all i can endure
i don't envisage god solving all the problems down here
but the blues never got me down

the clock tower in my town slowly takes my days away
only the gods can see the steps i've taken in this land
i look out upon silver waves and wonder on tales of old
a slow wind blowing through the streets keeps my mind awake
i've got such a deep attachment to such a simple world
a yellow magic sugarcube drives me out my mind
but the blues never got me down
but the blues never got me down
but the blues never got me down
Track Name: The Rolling Days
i took a walk by the river, i took a walk under the sky
both were born before me in the time before mankind
i wondered how many people had seen these sights
how many rivers followed how many prayers to the sky

as i carried on my way under the dawn of the day
i heard birds singing, how many have sang the song
the wind whistled by as my footsteps echoed behind
just how many footsteps does it take to make a life

and i made it to the sea and i looked out at the waves
the never-ending ocean brought me a calmness inside
i understood that all must pass and that's how it's meant to be
so let's celebrate the days as they roll on by

the rolling days, the rolling days
keep on rolling, rolling away
the rolling days, the rolling days
keep on rolling, rolling away
the rolling days, the rolling days
keep on rolling, rolling away
the rolling days, the rolling days
keep on rolling, rolling away
Track Name: Lord Give Me One More Day (My Soul Is Here)
i know my soul is here
placed between love and fear
heading to the unseen and unknown
but lord give me one more day

i don't want to rewind the years
all journeys lead to here
i'm not asking to drink from the grail
but lord give me one more day

lord give me one more day
i'm not ready to be taken away
lord shine your light on me
lord give me one more day

before i embrace my eternal fate
let me once more see the dawn
and hear the wind upon the land
oh lord give me one more day

let me say a heartfelt goodbye
to all i've known in this life
i don't care if there's sunshine or rain
but lord give me one more day

lord give me one more day
i'm not ready to be taken away
lord shine your light on me
lord give me one more day

lord give me one more day
lord give me one more day
lord give me one more day
lord give me one more day
Track Name: Gonna Tell Her
gonna tell her that i love her
gonna tell her i need her today
gonna tell her i want her by my side
and for her i'll make a better day

i always look forward to seeing her
i can never wait to catch her eye
i want to walk hand in hand with her
and leave the whole world behind

wherever i go i think about her
i hear her spirit blowing on the wind
when i'm alone i remember her smile
and for her i'll lay down my heart
