Track Name: Heartsong (Album Version)
Please steal my heart, without it I’ll go far.
Say you don’t, say you do not love me.
The beating of my heart is giving me a headache.
Track Name: Stop to Fight
Well I wish I was travelling so fast
And yet still
We’re rolling on.
Leaves are changing colour
They’re changing:
Green, yellow, orange, red, brown –
It’s been so long.
And I have never felt so afraid
And I have never felt so right
But I will never think that way
And I will never stop to fight.

So go do what you want,
Don’t look back, don’t think twice
Cos everybody has to feel sometimes.
And I won’t stand in front of your car, or yell
I won’t tell you not to go,
Cos sometimes, everyone just needs to know.
And I have never felt so ashamed
And I have never felt so right
And I will never think that way
And I will never stop to fight.
Track Name: The Brightest Light (Tasmania)
There is no word for the colour sitting on top of the ridge this evening -
The trees are scratching it out of the sky.
The dirt turns my toes orange, as the sky glows
My feet trail purple, tracing circles.
Can this be the path you gave me?

Light is fading, colour’s fading, something’s setting in.
Sun is setting, light is waning, colours turning grim.
The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

Like ships in the night, we passed, but you passed on.
The click of police cameras filled our room with deathly light,
It lit the lines
On Emma’s face and surely mine
As we spoke of other things,
Like what the year would bring us.
Can this be the path you gave him?
How could this be the path you gave him?

Light is fading, colour’s fading, something’s setting in.
Sun is setting, light is waning, colours turning grim.
The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

Do you believe in a future that is easier?
I don’t wanna walk the path you gave me.

There is no word for the colour sitting on top of the ridge this evening.
The trees keep scratching away at the sky.
Track Name: Kingdom Come
As I step forth into the atmosphere
Please don’t listen where I’m going to, you cannot follow here.
And if I close my eyes, I’m sure to disappear.
But the only way forward, is to recognise your fears.
Oh, Kingdom Come
How long? Until it’s done.

Now I see the cliff, facing now the great unknown.
I’ve got my fingers crossed, but I won’t stop until I’m comfortable on
my own feet may slip, my hands may lose their grip,
But if I open my eyes, I’m sure I’ll find
A place to rest upon this climb.
Oh, Kingdom Come
How long? Until it’s done.

If you see me stray into the bright, bright dark,
Please don’t tell me, but just hold me
‘til you know I’ve seen the spark.
With this leap of faith, you know I still might fall.
But the chance I might fly, without hope,
Is not a chance at all.
Oh, Kingdom Come.
How long? Until it’s done.
Track Name: I Am
To see the world from a great way up,
You have to climb and never stop.
To see the world the great way up,
You have to swing down from above.
To be the best, you must compare
Your lover’s with another’s stare
To be the best, forget the rest –
There’s time for all that when you’re dead.

Remember your brain’s just a muscle in a cage
And your heart is the same.
Humanity may cry, but the world’s not in your eye,
It could never fit there.
I am more than I know.

I’ll wake up tired, I’ll never stop,
I’ll see the world from a great way up.
Balloons in jails and golf ball hail,
It can’t have been a dream –
‘Cos I’m sure my eyes were open.
Can’t have been a dream –
‘Cos you would not have known then.
Swing down.

Remember your brain’s just a muscle in a cage
And your heart is the same.
Humanity may cry, but the world’s not in your eye,
It could never fit there.
I am more than I know.
Track Name: Half Sand
Some things don’t change, but most do.
There is no rock that isn’t half sand.
I wore my feet from running.
I think I lost my face in your hands.

I don’t know when I decided
I didn’t want you to change
I know now what you were needing
Was not to need me, not to want me
The same as I needed you.
The same as I still do.

Every breath in let’s me let you go
I keep on changing,
I must keep changing.
Every breath in let’s me let you go
I keep on changing, let you change
I’ll keep on going,
I will cast a spell on you:
Love me do. Love me as I should love you.
Love me as I want you to.

I’ve been trying so long to get in through the window,
I didn’t notice the door.
I see now there is no handle, so I don’t know
What it was even there for.
Did you need me, the same as I needed you?

Some things don’t change, but most do.
I am a rock, but I am half sand.
I wore my feet from running,
I think I lost my face in your hands.
Track Name: Ladybird
Well I don’t get lonely when I am at home,
And I don’t feel sad in a crowd on my own.
I’ll write you a monster rhyme, fly away home,
Your castles are burning, your dreams they have flown.
Ladybird, ladybird what do you see?
Building your sandcastles in the air, by the sea.
Ladybird, ladybird what do you know?
I remember you taught me true once long ago.

I wish I could say there was one Scarborough Fair –
I’d find me a truelove and then leave her there.
But as I look up and see clouds grey, I fear
That one perfect raindrop will never appear.
Ladybird, ladybird what do you see?
Building your sandcastles in the air, by the sea.
Ladybird, ladybird what do you know?
I remember you taught me true once long ago.
Track Name: I Fell In (Album Version)
We fell out, I fell in step with another.
I can’t dance anymore, I can’t dance.
We fell out, I fell into stride with another.
I can’t run anymore, I can’t run.

My dream told me you were beautiful
But I can’t touch you, I would fall through.
Also, you were cruel
But I couldn’t touch you, I would fall through.

Though I can do most anything,
I can’t reason with air to the wind.
Though I can do most anything,
I shouldn’t waste my breath on the wind.
We fell out, I fell in –
Meshed with another.
Track Name: Cigarette
Maybe I left my lights on once again,
And maybe, I didn’t look both ways before I started crossing.
And yes, I lit his cigarette, but I thought that he’d forget
And baby, that’s his addiction
Now I know I shouldn’t have let things go so far,
I won’t forget, but just see
I was addicted, how? I don’t know.

So sparkle, little fairy princess,
I’m sure doctor knows just what’s best,
I think you should take him in hand.
Cry your way through life decisions,
Don’t let reason start to seep in,
Put it in your five-year plan.
Yes, I lit his cigarette, but I thought that he’d forget
And baby, that’s his addiction
Now I know I shouldn’t have let things go so far
Past what I meant, but just see
You’re his addiction now.

So maybe, we should let past things pass.
And I know, that’s a question I should not have asked.
And yes, I lit his cigarette, but I thought that he’d forget
And baby, that’s his addiction
Now I know that I could feel
That pain you thought would never heal, but just see
That’s my addiction now.
I know I shouldn’t have let things go so far, I won’t forget, but just see
That’s your addiction now.
I know I shouldn’t have let things go so far, I do regret,
But let’s not make it our addiction now.
I don’t know how. I don’t know.
Track Name: Capital Letters
Tell me when did it all get so Serious?
And what is this weight that comes with Privilege?
Left from Right did not take long,
Back then I could even tell Right from Wrong.
I’ve got Bills but that’s no Misery.

Help me please, I’m falling
Asleep on the bus.
And I don’t mean to complain, but if it’s not too late,
Could I renew those books again? And yes,
Well you might ask, but no I’m not In Love,
Nor do I know what I Want To Be and yes,
These things are related, both over-debated
In my Head and my Heart, while I sleep.

Autumn winds are whistling, there’s a chill in the air.
And I am riding my friends bike, ‘cos every bike I like
Seems to be in need of Constant Repair.
And it won’t stop me singing, but I can’t help remembering,
Thinking the same thing this time yesterday:
It would stop me feeling Behind by just leaving
When I am not already Late.

Let’s Sing, let’s Dance,
Let’s do Anything But What We’re Supposed To Be Doing.
Track Name: My Lovely
You’re my lovely,
You’re my sunshine,
You’re my smile in the morning,
You’re my spring afternoon.

You’re my lovely,
You’re my delight.
You’re the soft cold breeze
In the bright moonlight.
