Track Name: Beginnings
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
Track Name: Don't Mourn The Autumn
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
Track Name: Promise Of You
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? (x2)
Track Name: After All (Sleepless Nights)
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)
Track Name: Smile
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…
Track Name: First Light
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
Track Name: Beach Therapy
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
Track Name: Time
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…
Track Name: Song For Elisabeth
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…
Track Name: Watching Clouds
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)
Track Name: Ours To Take
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
Track Name: Many Miles
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
