Beginnings My friends Gathered here together, all the people I love the most, laughing Like we never parted, much has changed but you’re still the same, I know Leave our cares forgotten, for tonight’s all about good times If you’d Asked me just a year gone, ‘what’s the world got in store for you?’, Would you Recognise the answer, when compared to the things that we’ve been through? But we’re still here laughing, new fond memories made tonight Don’t say, you feel bad for me I’m unbowed, it starts now In my eyes you’ll see I’m getting along fine It may Be a new horizon, but there’s so much now to explore, we can Choose our own adventure, I’m inspired and I’m wanting more, let us Drink to new beginnings, and to new lives about to start All change, but I’m not afraid With you near, there’s no fear Left in these darker days I’m getting along fine, I’m getting along just fine It’s in front of me Where I want to be With you here Don’t say, we should wait and see To me it’s clear, our time’s here Share it now with me All change, but I just feel free I’m unbowed, it starts now In my eyes just see I’m getting along fine, I’m getting along just fine

Don't Mourn The Autumn He turns the key in the lock, stops for a second To collect his thoughts one last time It’s been so long since he passed through this door What is waiting on the other side? It’s all so familiar yet all so different From the home this house had grown to be It’s not so long since he felt he belonged here And it’s strange but it’s changed and he knows now that he Should keep moving now You have come this far it’s not much further now Don’t mourn the autumn ‘Cause in time green shoots will follow He spent the afternoon in quiet reflection ‘Til he’s tired of his own company So many thoughts but they just sum to nothing Time to follow his heart and see All his hopes and dreams are packed into boxes Stacked against a wall of memories There was laughter here and love, before there were tears And who knows what will come to be but he hopes… Though it’s hurting now That in time you’ll realise it’s for the best Don’t mourn the autumn Winter comes and goes new leaves will grow again Have courage now You have come this far it’s not much further now Don’t mourn the autumn ‘Cause in time green shoots will follow

Promise Of You This is the moment, the pay-off you deserve You ignore the logic so that faith can be preserved A coin toss you correctly call the outcome That doesn’t give it meaning, that doesn’t give it meaning On a loaded dice-roll you weigh up your chances Giving too much meaning to trivial glances A fool’s hope just one bullet in the chamber Maybe it’s now or never, maybe it’s now or never Lay it down, lay it down, yeah I’m gambling it all, all I have to lose On the promise of you After all, don’t fail me now, yeah Good money after bad Is it real, is it you or just the promise of you? Everything you thought would be different about her Turned out the same just the morning after And what has changed when you look into the mirror? Isn’t this what you dreamed of, isn’t this what you dreamed of? Your skill alone maybe enough of a guarantee Or can desire triumph in perpetuity? Ignorance and arrogance a lethal combination Maybe they’ll never catch you, maybe they’ll never catch you Lay it down, lay it down, yeah I’m gambling it all, all I have to lose On the promise of you After all, don’t fail me now, yeah Good money after bad Is it real, is it you or just the promise of you?

After All (Sleepless Nights) You could’ve been, perhaps you should’ve been With everything, with all that we had going Hard to make sense, of past events Different from how you, you tell me it went It’s wearing thin, the state I’m living in Conjecturing, on how I should have treated you What matters now, I hope that you’re happy now I hope in time you, you find what you want If one day you find yourself, thinking of me Thinking we were so happy, where did it go? Then maybe you’ll find yourself, thinking like me Thinking we could be happy, after all A simple thing, yet such a precious thing Remembering, what really brought us together You can depend, that wherever this may end I am forever, first and foremost your friend If one day you find yourself, thinking of me Thinking we were so happy, where did it go? Then maybe you’ll find yourself, thinking like me Thinking we could be happy, after all (x2)

Smile A child, in time One voice, so bright Whether you hear it or not She won’t mind She’ll never know One place, such light Such hope, for life Whether you find it or not No map required You’ll find yourself there So smile, I’m asking you to Try, they’d do it for you Make each day a good day Make each day a good day Where is our faith in these times? While their grace, it shines Whether we know it or not We’ve lessons to learn We’ll learn them out there So smile, I’m asking you to Try, they’d do it for you Make each day a good day Make each day a good day…

First Light In the first stream of light through the blinds For a moment mistaken As I slowly come to realise That these visions were behind closed eyes And that what I have lived In these hours, or these minutes past Is dream, memory or simple desire An echo of loss or of hope, but nothing more I will lay here in this place between worlds Let blurred boundaries linger Enjoy the illusion as long as I can Preserve the small chance, I could reach out my hand right now And find it in yours Like I did so many times before But I know that reality is not on my side And in time I’ll have to turn and find your pillow undisturbed, once more In time I’ll see you once again In the first light of morning And the wait will be over And the future will be ours to go for Yes I will come to see you once again In the first light of morning And the worry and the doubt that you felt in the dark We’ll consign it to the past, we need never be apart again The passage of time, people told me was not on my side But each passing day, brings me closer to you In my half empty bed, I cannot hold a thought in my head beyond Anything, that brings me closer to you again And I'm counting the days, yes I’m counting the days And I will soon be with you once again Beside you when you wake or stir in your sleep I’ll be the one you dreamt of but can keep The first light comes and with it one last day ‘Til I will come to see you once again Yes I will come to see you once again

Beach Therapy A pebble in one hand, and a beer in the other We’re kicking back under cloudy skies And you bounce the pebble Towards a plastic pint glass, pick another, try again You can dip your feet in We can stay a while, the last train is still hours away And the sun breaks the cloud, and it all looks so different now And you find that you’ve forgotten, while you were crying Three pebbles in one hand, and a beer in the other And we form a circle in the sand And you hold your hand out Pick a number take your chance or take another drink Those famous faces, you try to bring to mind I’m sure I’ve felt like this before And the sun goes down, and it all looks so different now And you find that you’ve forgotten, while you were crying Your hand in my hand, as we walk together by the shore And the band are playing, the songs we know so well we sing along just like before I’ll take you dancing We can dance all night, we’ve missed the last train anyhow And the stars come out, and it all looks so different now And you find that you’ve forgotten while you were crying And you find that you’ve forgotten while you were crying

Time Take these thoughts, these silly little childish thoughts That threaten to do so much damage I’ll take them captive, I’ll deal with them, in time I was taught, to always make the most of what you’ve got While you’ve got it, ‘cause it might not last forever But now it seems forever, is all I’ve got Yeah all I’ve got, is time… So spend a little time Just a little of your precious time Share with me what is on your mind Maybe I can help? Sometimes, it feels a lifetime away But I remember every moment, like it was yesterday So take these thoughts These silly little sentimental, childish thoughts For now they play unchecked, untempered In my mind I’ll deal with them In time…

Song For Elisabeth I, I know that I lost you Someone I should have held tight I didn’t realise, think twice I just stood and let you leave You, you spoke and I heard you Why did I hide? Why? I remember our time, see your soft smile When you looked at me I wish you well, and I wish I wish it away Her heart it hurts, so much Make it lighter today Lighter today, lighter today Lighter today, lighter today We, we walked alone, we talked You knew my every way I know it’s too late, I can’t wait It’s time to move on Le recul, mon ami Ensaissisable, peu fiable Ne jamais là Lorsque on a besoin de lui Mon ami, le recul, le recul…

Watching Clouds So it seems I’ve fallen for you, god knows I didn’t mean to From the very first sleepless week, I could never risk losing you and though I’d learned to trust that time, would heal through chance or fate Never dreamed I'd meet you here In this precise time or place So it seems I’ve fallen for you, and all we’ve already been through Has confirmed what I think I knew, there is so much of my ideal self in you My magic mirror, you see straight through to my soul There is no holding back, I close my eyes and slowly I lose myself in your words, I find myself in these sensations No matter how far I go, I still hear your voice It’s calling me home And even though I don’t always follow the road There’s only one choice, you’re calling me home I’m coming to you Stay with me, just sit a while, and share what’s been on your mind The things you’re most afraid of, the truth that’s hiding behind The lies we tell ourselves, behind those vicious lies There’s something no one can steal, you help me realise that Sometimes it’s ok, to stop fighting And sometimes it’s ok, to sit quietly And to watch thoughts pass like clouds Watch them come and go like clouds Take me from these busy streets, unveil the secrets they keep The stars we never see, maybe they were made for you and me To find, out here in quiet fields, new peace and wisdom revealed Through all the road has shown, with you now I am home And that which must still be borne Feels so much lighter with your warm arms around me You are my sanctuary, the roads that brought us here Took many painful turns, with a toll of many tears And in this destination, I cannot find regret For you my sanctuary, I would drive down this road again No matter how far I go, I still hear your voice It’s calling me home, and even though I don’t always follow the road There’s only one choice, you’re calling me home I’m coming to you (x2)

Ours To Take They told us it was history in the making They said it was ours for the taking But nobody showed us how They told us that it’s as easy as walking In the direction we’re facing So how are we so lost now? Maybe we spent too long waiting Lost hours and days hesitating Nobody said we were dreaming Maybe it’s time to wake up, and take what is ours to take Between us we believed in what we were doing Took a chance and lived in the moment We thought it belonged to us Somehow even while we felt so proud We realised our time wasn’t right now No matter if it was just Maybe we weren’t what we wanted Lost in the storm disappointed Don’t want to feel we were dreaming Maybe it’s time to wake up, and face what is ours to face Together we’ve taken the time to consider The reasons we put pen to paper And why did it hurt so much? That feeling of working together for something For something that we believed in For something that you can touch There maybe a little more waiting Lost in the moments we’re facing But it’s ok to keep dreaming Maybe it’s time to wake up, and take what is ours to take And take what is ours to take

Many Miles I have walked many miles, and I’m weary I will rest now, lay my down for a moment or maybe for a little while This place is warm and it brings me peace and healing It’s not the place I set out for But I found it, or it found me At the perfect time By your grace I will walk many more miles In green fields under a bluer sky than I’ve known for a while Or thought I would know again As my friend for some time We have talked many times, and I’m ready Take good care now, as you’ve taken such good care of me
