Track Name: (I'm Just A) Day Dreamer
i don't know where i'm going
or where the wind is blowing
but one thing i know for sure
i know i'll be alright
i don't know where my rivers flowing
the past is always growing
but all will be just fine
my dreams will see me through
i'm just a day dreamer
dreaming my days away
people think i'm crazy
but i'm getting by ok

am i learning or knowing?
moments coming and going
the future is for the past
and i'm only for the now
i walk the wind street
leafs blowing past my feet
the sun will come and go
but i know i'll be alright
i'm just a day dreamer
dreaming my days away
people think i'm crazy
but i'm getting by ok

i dream to pass the time
get a lot of it in this life
i feel good in my mind
i'm glad i got this life
people rushing through the day
letting dreams slip away
tomorrow won't always be
take the time to dream
i'm just a day dreamer
dreaming my days away
people think i'm crazy
but i'm getting by ok
Track Name: Take Me Somewhere (You and Me)
take me somewhere
take me anywhere
just you and me
the wind on our feet
and we'll be free, from society
just you and me

take me from here
down through the years
just you and me
on the road will be
or out at sea, sailing where we please
just you and me

we'll have no worries on our mind
we'll admire the sun and moon as they shine
and our love will grow and grow
as we journey down the road

take me from there
take me nowhere
just you and me
wandering the breeze
no worries at all, we will concur all
just you and me

take me somewhere
take me anywhere
just you and me
the wind on our feet
and we'll be free, from society
just you and me
Track Name: I Saw The Changes (In Your Heart)
i saw the changes in your heart
i saw the changes in your heart
you don't seem to love me, you're no longer thinking of me
i saw the changes in your heart

my eyes are now full of tears
my eyes are now full of tears
i feel like i'm gonna cry, cos you love another guy
i saw the changes in your heart

i'm walking down the lonesome street
i'm walking down the lonesome street
you won't be my bride and i wish that i could hide
since i saw the chances in your heart

i don't know if it was something that i done
i don't know if it was something that i done
your heart i'd thought i'd won and you'd be my only one
i saw the changes in your heart

i saw the changes in your heart
i saw the changes in your heart
will love find me again? as i walk the worlds plain
i saw the changes in your heart
Track Name: Hey, Hey! Sally Gal
hey, hey, sally gal how are you today?
i hope you are doing fine, everything is ok
hey, hey, sally gal how are you today?
i send you peace and love with a thought of you today
hope life's treating you good
hope you're doing ok
remember if you're ever lonely you can always call on me

hey, hey, sally gal how are you today?
i hope you have a smile and you're feeling great today
hey, hey, sally gal how are you today?
i hope the rain is far away and the sun is shining today
hope life's treating you good
hope you're doing ok
remember if you're ever lonely you can always call on me

hey, hey, sally gal how are you today?
i hope you are doing fine, everything is ok
Track Name: At The Queen's For Tea
i once went to the queens for tea
i had some cakes they were lovely
all around, all that i saw
smacked of total inequality

servants for her every need
a palace live in rent free
priceless art in every room
with all the money from me and you

a prince and a princess might sound nice
but it all comes at a price
flag to wave and holiday
won't make me forgot those who pay

so count your pennies 1, 2, 3
send some to her majesty
as she sits on a throne
doing little but growing old

so when i came back from the queens
i had become a revolutionary
from now i'll act for equality
an extra penny for you and me

nobody needs a house that big
surely plenty need a place to live
can't she open a door or two
to the many who need a roof

but i'm glad i went for tea at the queens
it opened my mind to inequality
although the world that i see
still seems blinded by her royalty
Track Name: Give Your Thanks To Life
you were born into this life
you were born into the world
you have no choice but you're here now
this is your life
when you go down the street
give thanks to all you feel
give your heart, give a hand
be the change you wish to see

and give your thanks to life
give your thanks to love
hold on through the storms
embrace the sunshine

and give your thanks to life
give your thanks to love
there's no need to hurry
just take your time

no one can stop the rain
when in life you feel pain
but with your heart you can make love
and love makes the world go round
you can't change the world alone
but little steps grow and grow
if something's wrong make it right
create a better life

and give your thanks to life
give your thanks to love
hold on through the storms
embrace the sunshine

and give your thanks to life
give your thanks to love
there's no need to hurry
just take your time

and give your thanks to life
give your thanks to love
hold on through the storms
embrace the sunshine

and give your thanks to life
give your thanks to love
Track Name: Spreading Love
you might not believe in jesus
or in a forever heaven above
but no matter in what you believe
spreading love's the thing to do

carry yourself with dignity and pride
look after your soul deep inside
don't focus on a reward
spreading love's the thing to do

you might be a hindu
and mormon, muslim or a jew
but no matter what path you choose
spreading love's the thing to do

another's belief does you no harm
there is no reason to doubt their heart
as long as good is done that is true
spreading love's the thing to do

spreading love
spreading love
spreading love's the thing to do

you might believe there's no afterlife
and that science holds the key
don't use that to be unkind
spreading love's the thing to do

there are many things to believe
in what name good is done doesn't bother me
we have to come together for peace
spreading love's the thing to do

spreading love
spreading love
spreading love's the thing to do

spreading love
spreading love
spreading love's the thing to do
Track Name: I'll Take A Memory
a day always dawns
i arrive before the sun
i put on my old shoes
and i walk away from you
i'll take a memory of your smile

a moment always passes
grass is never forever green
the sea will wash the land
the trees never reach the sky
i'll take a memory of your heart

never is never arriving
the word won't be written
purpose is in the look of an eye
you aren't by my side
i'll take a memory of the words you said

rain won't stop falling
sunshine you shone on me
your hand i wish i was holding
now you're some place else
i'll take a memory of a day with you
Track Name: She's The Only Girl In My Sights
hey, hey ain't she pretty in the moonlight
standing looking pretty under the starlight
i can wait to hold her hand so tight
she's the only girl in my sights

hey, hey ain't she pretty under the sunrise
can't believe she's standing in front of my eyes
the world spins as i realise
she's the only girl in my sights

hey, hey ain't she pretty in the morning
waking today my heart is exploring
the sight of her is never boring
she's the only girl in my sights

hey, hey ain't she pretty in the way she talks
i'm much happier when by my side she walks
i wasn't prepared for the shock
she's the only girl in my sights
she's the only girl in my sights
she's the only girl in my sights
Track Name: A Song To Sing
i know i can't hold a tune
and i'll never get to the moon
but one thing i'll try as the years go by
is to leave a smile in every heart

you never know what's down the road
or which way the wind may blow
a look into space, will confirm your place
as a miracle that can create more

there's so many things i've never seen
many things that i wanted to be
but i know who i am, i'm following my plan
it will take me to wherever i go

this song isn't about a lot
but a song doesn't need a plot
in the key of C or of D, it doesn't matter to me
i'm just trying to enjoy every day i can

i couldn't think of any more words
so this song ends on this verse
there's nothing left to say, at least not today
this song will end right about now
Track Name: Rosemary's Song
come to the land of celtic past
where painters paint natures rhyme
and listen to the sea sing for rosemary

daylight shadows the homes
on the crooked streets i ramble and roam
and i listen to the sea sing for rosemary

a plea is sung to the timeless waves
the poem is alive, like the heart inside
and listen to the sea sing for rosemary

hear the birds call from the trees
hear the gentle whisper of the breeze
and hear the sea sing for rosemary
