Track Name: ...Rebekah
Rebekah

Thinking of a time when times were harder
Dreaming of a life that might come true
Hoping for the day that you would call me
And ask to start something new

I’m trying not to count the cost
Cause without you all would be lost

Taking time away for things
Much happier when I’m home
If it takes a while you still make me smile
I’d never be happy alone

I’m trying not to count the cost
Cause without you all would be lost

So sleep tonight and dream of me
You’re all I need so hope to keep
Everything we have and all we’ll see (x2)

I’m trying not to count the cost
Cause without you all would be lost

Breaks my heart to imagine you lonely
With all we’ve done and all we’ll share
I’m so proud of you and all you do
I need you with me to care

I’m trying not to count the cost
Cause without you all would be lost

So sleep tonight and dream of me
You’re all I need so hope to keep
Everything we have and all we’ll see
Track Name: Lazy Days
Lazy Days

We hope to achieve
But it’s never what we need
You can run and hide
Wear your favourite disguise
In the mirror and on the stairs
I’m looking everywhere
Searching for my dreams
Know that nothings as it seems

Lazy days are my own
I’m looking for answers, answers
Ooh ooh (x2)

Sitting on the train
Everything is still the same
The colours of the sky
Not the people passing by
When I listen to the noise
Her manner and her poise
When she looks across and beams
I know that nothings as it seems
Know that nothings as it seems

Lazy days are my own
I’m looking for answers, answers
Ooh ooh (x2)

I’m taking my time
Making my mind up
Taking my time
Making my mind up

The water in the stream
Paints a happy life it seems
The cobbles in the street
Bringing life to my feet
When I listen to the bell
A noise I know so well
Though I try to believe
I know that nothings as it seems
Know that nothings as it seems

Lazy days are my own
I’m looking for answers, answers
Ooh ooh

I’m taking my time
Still making my mind up

I’m taking my time
Making my mind up (x3)
Track Name: Pull No Punches
Pull No Punches

I don’t deny it’s good to dream
But dreams come a little too easy, to me
Reach for the sky but keep your feet
It’s hard to strike a balance
With eyes as wide as these
Less what I want, more what I need
And I need just a little taste of your reality

It’s just like you to pull no punches
It’s just like you to be brutally honest
It’s just like you to save me

And so it goes we make our plans
We build our aspirations, our castles in the sand
So keen to give you all I can
I’m full of good intentions
Knowing you’ll understand
Sometimes we need a steady hand
To take me by the shoulder
And make me think again

It’s just like you to pull no punches
It’s just like you to be brutally honest
It’s just like you to save me
Save me from myself

Because of you I have to beat
All that they put in front of me
Because of you I keep my feet
Although the tide it turns against me
Because of you I dare to dream
Knowing you are watching for me
Knowing you are there to catch me
Catch me while you can

No, no, no
Ooh it’s just like you to pull no punches
It’s just like you to be brutally honest
It’s just like you to save me
It’s just like you to pull no punches
It’s just like you to be brutally honest
It’s just like you to save me, save me

What we gonna do if you don’t save me now (x5)
Save me (x3)
Track Name: Footprints
Footprints

Her eyes are dreaming, heart is beating
As she roams across this land
The sun is lazy, lies out of reach
A world she touches with her hand
She smiles she passes, she stays a while
How long, no-one knows
Before too long, she’s moving on
Leaving footprints as she goes

The candle burning, no-one learning
We only help ourselves
Am I lazy, do I do enough?
For a world we don’t involve
The streets around me, the stories told
From a day we’ll never see
Before too long the streets will fold
Under the footprints that we leave

Show me, show me the answers
Show us, the young and the chancers
Change me, the habits that die hard
Die hard now

Summer’s cooling, selfish ruling
New creatures rule the waves
You are lazy, turn it off
For a world we need to save
You smile, you pass me, unaware
Blood is running through your veins
Your voice it matters, you have a choice
Leave only footprints in the rain
And in the rain......

Show me
Show us
Change me
Die hard now
Show me, show me the answers
Show us, the young and the chancers
Change me, the habits that die hard
Die hard now
Die hard now
Die hard now
Now.....
Now.....

Just one look
Just one smile is all I need
It’s all I needed from you
To take my disappointed days
And make them yesterdays news

That evening sunlight in the moment
When you come back to me
My instant filter of emotion
Yeah you set me free

The still point of, my turning world
Comes into view
And I am never as happy as when I’m with you
As when I’m with you
Woah yeah....

Just one kiss
Just one touch is all I need
One second holding your hand
The simplest things can move me
In ways I don’t understand

That evening sunlight in the moment
When you come back to me
My instant filter of emotion
Yeah you set me free

The still point of, my turning world
Comes into view
And I am never as happy as when I’m with you
The still point of, my turning world
Comes into view
You know I am never as happy as when I’m with you
As when I’m with you

As when I’m with you
As when I’m with you
With you......
Track Name: Never Thought
Never Thought

I never thought it mattered
But it leads me on
I’m feeling bruised and battered
Cause it ties me up, cuts me down

Oh Oh, I never thought it mattered
Oh Oh, But it matters oh so much, hey...

Although the journey’s lonely
We wouldn’t change a thing
Is there a god if only?
To shine a light, show me when
Show me where this must end
If there was someone to call me
To tell me it’s alright
I need somebody to know me
Only, to keep me by their side

Oh Oh, I never thought it mattered
Oh Oh, But it matters oh so much, yeah....

Send me love, send me love, send me love

Come with me
Dance with me, yeah
Believe in me (x2)

I see your faces before me
They make it all worth while
My friends no ending there can be
We walk all day and talk all night
If you know how much we need you
You would scream out loud tonight
I’m never leaving without you, baby
Not without a fight

Oh Oh, I never thought it would matter
Oh Oh, But it matters oh so much, heya...

Oh Oh, I never thought it mattered
Oh Oh, But it matters oh so much
Track Name: Home From Home
July, still high

It’s warm outside, try touch the sky

My home, alone

These four walls are not my own



I ring the bell

My father is not looking well

We wait in line

But we know now could be the time



One day closer

Fear it chokes us

Someone help us

Help me...

One day closer

None the wiser

Where or why us?

Hold me...



We reached for you

The world outside knew what to do

We wait in line

Home from home, time after time
Home from home, time after time



“In paradisum deducant te angeli”
Track Name: I Won't Cry
I Won't Cry

Walk with me
Talk to me
Show me the way
Live with me

I adore you
Promise you’ll stay
You know I need you

Don’t wana wake up
Without you by my side
Won’t get what I want
If you’re not in my life
Why can’t you see
I won’t cry, ooh.....

It’s up to you
It’s all for you
I’ve seen it today
Within you

Will you keep me?
Promise you’ll stay
You know I need you

Don’t wana wake up
Without you by my side
Won’t get what I want
If you’re not in my life
Why can’t you see?

Track Name: Leave Tonight
Leave Tonight

Take a look at me
See the smile across our faces
Feel the summer breeze
Do you want to take me places?

Take the evening off
Kiss me nice and soft
Slowly...

Tell me what you want
Can you put me through my paces?
Baby run with me
We can move to open spaces

Honey turn me on
I don’t know where you’re from
I don’t care

Ooh ooh, Let us leave tonight

Ooh ooh, Let us leave tonight
Ooh, yeah yeah yeah

Is there time to see?
Is there time to go away now?
What is left for me?
Nothing here for us to stay now

Honey let’s move on
To somewhere we belong
Live free

Ooh ooh, Let us leave tonight
Ooh ooh, Let us leave tonight
You know we gotta leave tonight
Ooh, Ooh
Tonight...
Track Name: So Brand New
So Brand New

I never really learned to tell the truth
Lying comes so easy when you’re living in your youth
Never really learned, to tell the truth

You never really loved me when all said and done
After all our fighting, I know you’re not the one
Never really loved me, when all said and done

We must always look towards the timing, in life
Stand back, take stock, try not to, to fight

Do you wanna know whose talking to you?
Whisper words of wisdom, it soon gets through
It takes time to see but, look at me
You’ll find a friend that’s so brand new

Don’t want this life, won’t take this pain
Can’t keep the faith, not enough to gain
I don’t want this life, I won’t take this pain

Ooh but I won’t give up, just need my life to change
I’m not sure how, but I think I know the way
Won’t give up no, just need my life to change

My daddy said you’ll be someone, and maybe I might
And now’s the time to look, at what’s in, in sight

Do you wanna know whose talking to you?
Whisper words of wisdom, it soon gets through
It takes time to see but, look at me
You’ll find a friend that’s so brand new
You’ll find a friend that’s so brand new

You’ll find a friend that’s so brand new (x2)
Track Name: Tell Me
Tell Me

Tell me, tell me, tell me.....

Everything seems easy
When looking through your eyes
But looking in the mirror
Shows there’s no disguise, oh no.....
No disguise, can’t you see what I want?

Looking for answers to questions
Can’t you make it a little easier?
Looking for answers to questions
Oh, tell me, tell me

I’m feeling so much happier
Since making up my mind
Keeping everything inside of me
And trying to read the signs, no....
No, it just wasn’t right
Glad to see that you might

Looking for answers to questions
Can’t you make it a little easier?
Looking answers to questions
Oh, tell me, tell me, tell me

See what’s inside
Take what you like
See what’s inside

Tell me....
Tell me....
Ooh....
Track Name: Save Today
Save Today

Can you tell me a story?
Any tale should do
Don’t look around
Looking here for glory
A whisper of a crowd
But not a sound
A sound....

Your smile it rewards me
My words are yours are mine
Don’t look around
Sing to me it’s your voice
Sing it like you can
And tell me what you’ve found
Ooh what you’ve found
What you’ve found....

I know what you are
I see what you do
Make me a part of it
I know what you are
I feel it on me too
Wanna be a part of it

Take what’s yours and try what’s mine
I owe it all to you
Don’t look away
Read my mind and turn each page
Don’t let it fade away
Try save today, today
Ooh, today

I know what you are
I see what you do
Make me a part of it
I know what you are
I feel it on me too
Wanna be a part of it

Save today, the child in me says
Stay, stay…...
