Wanderer 02:51
Wanderer Wanderer, the river shining in the morning sun Wandering, between the country and the city we will run A quiet place a silent grace A field of green embrace A bold escape oh say, say you’ll come along Wanderer, the river shining in the morning sun Wandering, between the country and the city we will run Soon, always too soon, betray the moon, it comes as soon as it comes a new day breaks the moon, it breaks too soon, as we are as we are on the run, as we are on the run Wanderer, the river shining in the morning sun Wandering, between the country and the city we will run Wandering, between the country and the city we will run Wandering, between the country and the city we will run

Even If 03:50
Even If Even if you were a sailor, if you were a traitor, if you were a liar, if you were on fire If you asked a question that I couldn’t answer, if you told me actually you were a dancer If you’d made a mess and you’d hurt all around you, I’d stick by your side even if I’d resent you, if you’d turn out different than I had imagined, I’d still be your friend, all till the end And I won’t let you I couldn’t let you I wouldn’t ever let you down No I, I won’t let you I couldn’t let you I wouldn’t ever let you down no Not even if you’d exist Even if no-one around here could understand you, I’d try to relate to the words that you bend I’d try to align with your viewpoints your reasons, your insane denial and your complete delusions I couldn’t care less if they all thought you crazy, they all thought you lazy, I’d make up my own mind, Oh bless for your you-ness, the truth is your greatness is so underrated And I won’t let you I couldn’t let you I wouldn’t ever let you down No I, I won’t let you I couldn’t let you I wouldn’t ever let you down no Not even if you’d exist Maybe if I could have known you, I wouldn’t be lonely, we’d walk down the lanes and we’d talk about everything we never told anyone, we’d share all our secrets, we’d have all the world of fun Sharing the brightness, sharing the darkness that hides out in our minds, ‘cause you’d understand me and I’d understand you, and you’d be my best friend, and you’d never leave me You’d never leave me out in the cold Oh how I wish, you’d exist How I wish, you’d exist

Stay A Little Longer Oh mother I’m scared Scared of the day you will leave me Oh mother I’m scared Fearing the world outside these walls Scared of the day you won’t be here So just stay a little longer Stay a little longer Oh father I know it Know there will be a day when I will face it Oh sister we’ve made it we’ve come this far, grown up so fast face the days, forgot the past But just stay a little longer oh just stay a little longer Oh lover I know you Like the back of my hand Oh my lover I miss you Though I know we need to go I just hope we won’t lose sight of home Or stay a little longer won’t you stay a little longer oh just stay a little longer Please just stay a little longer Right here.

Feathers 03:29
FEATHERS I give you a feather I give you my wings You can use them if you like You can use me if you like I give you a promise I give you a dream You can break them if you like You can break me if you like And what is love if not this Oh is this love and if not then what is if not then what is Love takes all Love takes two Takes falling, calling out and getting up again Takes doing all we can And what is love if not this Oh is this love and if not then what is I breathe us inside a dream I breathe us out as I take it all in And with you I win even when I lose the view I’ve still got you, I’ve still got you And what is love if not this Oh this is love ‘cause it’s you that I miss It’s you that I miss

Alternate Reality You, you are, the man I’ll never have Though I have wanted you since the day we met But we can be together in this alternate reality I see a road but I turn back I see a house but I will pass and I see a life that isn’t mine, I see a love that will never be ‘Cause you, you are, the man I’ll never have Though I have wanted you since the day we met But we can be together in this alternate reality Oh these are the feelings I cannot feel and these are the thoughts that I cannot think and these are the secrets I hide away but they whisper to me they whisper to me Oh these are the future’s that I contain that I keep away so that they won’t be and these are the moments, a thousand moments that never happened They’ll never happen ‘Cause you, you are, the man I’ll never have Though I have wanted you since the day we met But we can be together in this alternate reality

We Make Three Once I was a friend, A lover and a passer by In a distant land, Of ships and changing tides There lie the tracks I follow them home To where I once belonged There is a world that I left behind When all the stars aligned For you and me For you and me Should we make three Oh you and me See eye to eye Oh you and I Is this the right time? And the more I try to reach The stars above the water-line The further they all seem Leaving all this world behind I go back to the tracks I follow them home To where I once belonged Before you and me For you and me Should we make three Oh you and me See eye to eye Oh you and I Is this the right time?

Victory 02:57
Victory living life out of a can cans of worms fall down the tram trams are full of of frowny faces faces full of teary traces oh we need a brighter light to shine shiny like a diamond in the sun to bring the light back to our hearts bringing back my love to bring me warmth oh stop this war carry on as olden days days of old were full of praise praise the lord for what we’ve got gotten all we need to grow our crops but we need a brighter light to shine shiny like a diamond in the sun to bring the light back to our hearts bringing back my love to bring me warmth oh stop this war and we have only just begun begun to march till we have won won the life’s of those who may may not see the light of day we’ll find a brighter light to shine shiny like a diamond in the sun to bring victory to our hearts bringing back my love to bring me warmth oh end this war

The Day That I Die How big do you feel when you close your eyes feel it shrink, feel it grow, feel it’s rise how far do you feel when you close your eyes feel the ground fall away from the skies nevermind all else we are blind but I don’t mind, I don’t mind you do whatever you like oh my handsome it was love at first sight and I will love you till the day that I die How does it change when you close your eyes do you feel, do you know, do you try How can it be when we close our eyes we are here yet we’re somewhere else aligned we are out of our minds but I don’t mind, I don’t mind you do whatever you like oh my handsome it was love at first sight and I will love you till the day that I die till the day that we die we’ll be out of our minds till the day that we die oh I am out of my mind Out of my mind And I don’t mind, I don’t mind we do whatever we like oh my handsome it was love at first sight and I will love you till the day that I die

Oh Tommy 02:42
Oh Tommy Oh Tommy your smile, saved me for a while When the skies send streaks of golden light down to the ground Oh Tommy your eyes, they made me for a while To be everything oh everyone you dreamed of But the skies came tumbling down When lighting hit the town Oh Tommy your word, used to mean so much I know everything you did was out of love Oh Tommy I see, the emptiness of secrecy You were my everything oh everyone I dreamed of But the walls came crumbling down When the storm came to the town And it blew it all down And it threw me to the ground Oh Tommy I know, you didn’t mean to go But the wind it caught your wings and took you far away Oh Tommy I hope, the wind will take you home one day When you follow it’s direction maybe you could stay? Oh my heart came crashing down When you told me you’d leave town Oh this heart came crashing down Oh Tommy tell me you’ll come back to town Oh Tommy tell me you’ll come back to town

Lie With Me 04:19
Lie With Me Like a child in the dark I stay up late Like a radio-wave A sirens parade Lie with me, lie with me tonight Lie with me, till all is bright Like I'm one of the stars Simon said I fly from Venus to Mars All from my bed Oh come here and lie with me, lie with me tonight Lie with me, lie with me till all is bright Like a falling leaf We search for ground The silence smothering me I need you around So come here and lie with me, lie with me tonight Lie with me, lie with me till all is bright
