Track Name: Everblue
LYRICS

Where have all the flowers gone
The fields where we once played
The grass is green in photographs
And now it’s washed away

Sands fall through the hourglass
Time and tide pass by
A butterfly hangs overhead
Then crashes from the sky

Look what we’re done
You will burn in our sun
You will eat what we breed
You will choke where we breathe
You will fight when we rest
You will die from our thefts
You will drink from our waste
We will die in disgrace

Everblue this we give to you
Look the other way
Just for one more day
We just look the other way
Sorry to betray
We just look the other way
Spend and let you pay
We just look the other way
Nothing more to say
We just look the other way
Just for one more day
We just look the other way
Sorry to betray
We just look the other way
Kiss your ass and pray
We just look the other way
Nothing more to say
Look the other way
Just for one more day
We just look the other way
Nothing more to say
Track Name: Fade Away
LYRICS

There’s a house where I once played
On a hill so far away
And the walls on which I climbed seem much smaller now

The memories slowly fade
Of the childhood games I played
I sit and watch my son and daughters growing taller day by day

Where are they now?
These memories
As I grow older they fade away

There’s a school where I once learned
That the big boys often burned
And some friends that I knew then
Would leave for distant lands and not return

And in my childhood dreams
The world was smaller than it seemed
The truth that comes to pass is that reality is here to last

Where are they now?
My dreams are memories
As I grow older they fade away.
Track Name: Soul Words
LYRICS

You take what you can find
You know the place, the time
You bend the rules that bind
You dance to free your mind
You give what you can’t take
You won’t admit mistakes
You want what you don’t have
You smile but you can’t laugh

Why do we run when there’s nowhere to hide?
Why don’t we cry when a small child has died?
Why don’t we hurt when the pains far away?
Why can’t we hear what our souls have to say?

You play to selfish rules
You joke and play the fool
You drift your life away
You need to have your say
You’re just a stubborn man
You think you have a plan
You cannot tell what’s real
You can touch, but don’t feel

Why do we run when there’s nowhere to hide?
Why don’t we cry when a small child has died?
Why don’t we hurt when the pains far away?
Why can’t we hear what our souls have to say?
Say, say, say

You learn the golden rule
You were not shown at school
You face your inner fears
You greet your twilight years
You have some time to think
You stand upon your brink
You hear your angels sing
You didn’t change a thing

Say you got it wrong
But you’re not the only one

Why do we run when there’s nowhere to hide?
Why don’t we cry when a small child has died?
Why don’t we hurt when the pains far away?
Why can’t we hear what our souls have to say?

What’s ya soul gonna say?
Track Name: Scared To Dream
LYRICS

I don’t know what comes across me every day
I change my mind like it’s a dirty shirt
I’m fingers and thumbs at holding on to all I have
They fall and lie discarded in the dirt

With ease you break my fragile peace of mind
I’m scared to dream, I’m all alone

The sudden pain of losing all I know
I’m scared to dream, I hear me scream

The constant fear, not knowing what is best to do?
The never answered questions, I keep asking you
Familiar faces and those places where I go
I act so bored of everyone and everything I know.

With ease you break my fragile peace of mind
I’m scared to dream, scared to dream

The sudden pain of losing all the things I know
I’m scared to dream
Scared to dream
Track Name: Touch
LYRICS

I hear your voice on the answer phone
I said I’d call on my way home
I hope you’re in when I get there
To hold you close
To show I care

Hold you, hold you in my arms
Hold me, hold me in your arms
Hold you, want you, hold you in my arms
Hold me, want me, take me in your arms
Track Name: Big Cars
LYRICS

Big cars drive
10 lanes wide
Air con or die
At 55

Pimped up with pride
Skin hides inside
Kick down to drive
At 55

Sitting in my box there’s 18 kind of locks
Designed to set me free
Safe within my shell the radio talks to me
Alone no one can see

I want to drift away
Far from this stinking road
No-one can hear me pray
I want to shed this load

I drive my car
It takes me near or far
Faster than you
Red, amber, green… into the blue
Track Name: Hold On
LYRICS

Despite ourselves we cannot win
No magic cream for fragile skin
When the world decides you’ve had your time
Prepare yourself to get in line

Hold on to what you’ve got
‘cos it can all go tomorrow
Hold on to every one you need
Hold on
Things can change

In spite of this we don’t give in
From sudden ends the new begins
When the world decides
To play its hand
Prepare yourself
Forget your plans

Hold on to what you’ve got
‘cos it can all go tomorrow
Hold on to every one you need
Hold on
Things can change
Track Name: Hello
LYRICS

“Hello how ya doing?” I know what you’re going to say.
“I’m fine, could be better. Pull up a chair let’s talk about the weather”
I know how you’re feeling, I don’t need the words to see inside
the pain behind your pride, you always try to hide.
When you’re feeling down I’ll be around, I’ll always be beside you.
If you could read my mind you will find
a love that’s there just for you.

“Hello, how’s it going?
I’ve brought you some cards to wish you well, from those you know.
“Pull up a chair, let’s talk like we’ve got nowhere to go”.
And when you’re sleeping,
please know the hearts you hold within your dreams
always understand more than it first seems.
When you’re feeling down, we’ll be around, we’re always there beside you.
When you’re feeling fine, we’ll keep in mind
the times we had without you.

“So long, must be going”.
If I could I’d want to stay and sit here by your side,
and make this go away.

“See you tomorrow”.
Same time, same place, just a different day
when we will talk around the things we do not say
Track Name: Touch (GM Mix)
LYRICS

I hear your voice on the answer phone
I said I’d call on my way home
I hope you’re in when I get there
To hold you close
To show I care

Hold you, hold you in my arms
Hold me, hold me in your arms
Hold you, want you, hold you in my arms
Hold me, want me, take me in your arms
