Oh boy, oh man it’s here again and I have known I should have let it go This feeling always lingers lets me know there’s something out of my control My dear, oh boy, oh man I can’t keep hold Oh boy, oh man it’s here again I should have build some walls around my heart And even though I could have known I let it in and now I fall apart My dear, oh boy, oh man this aching heart Oh my it’s why I’m here again I can’t come out from underneath your foot upon my chest Hey Eros won’t you take this weight away and give me my heart back My dear, oh boy, oh man just let me rest My dear, oh boy, oh man it never lasts Come here, my boy, my man just for the last time be mine I guess it’s time to try to cut these string I’m like a puppet in a show So I can walk all on my own but it seems these strings are all I’ve ever known. My dear, oh boy, oh man I’ve got to go

These Hands 03:48
These hands have been places they should have never been This mouth has spoken words better left unsaid But done is done This mind has imaged so many unimaginable things These arms around the wrong of another being But what’s done is done And you can, you can, Build a castle out of sand upon the promise of a handsome man These feet have walked roads better left alone The weeds grow through the sand The weeds swallow the land And these thoughts have build walls too strong to break apart Let it out, let it out, to let it in, let it into my heart Because what’s done is done And you can, you can, Build a castle out of sand upon the promise of a handsome man Oh how to build upon foundations broken To build upon confessions left unspoken Like a silent cancer growing Blissfully unknowing But what’s done is done
3.
Restless as the skies These clouds, they’ll fly by Powerless but I, try shift them in my mind Oh take, take me somewhere new Take, take me far away Restless as a bird I fly out, I return You’ve made me as a friend And I will come back again If you would take, take me somewhere new Take, take me far away Restless as the sound I will come around Hoping you’ll stay put So we can So we should So you can If you would Take, take me somewhere new Take, take me far away Take, take my hand and say you will go where I go You will fly when I fly You will know what I know Let us fly and make these restless skies our home

Getting to know you know me ‘cause I wanna know you and I want you to know me with all of my flaws & all my desires & all of the crazy thoughts I got Getting to hold you, hold me in your space, create a space for me Getting to be me, get you to be you, be you, don’t hide any parts Won’t you come and stay with me here Won’t you get on this bus, this plane and be with me, oh let’s be us ‘Cause there you are thinking that you love me But what you love is a ghost, a ghost of me And here I am thinking that I love you But what I see is a ghost a ghost of you knowing a ghost, knowing a ghost, knowing a ghost of you All I know is a ghost, all I know is a ghost of you So come and stand a little closer let me breathe you breathe us in and shed this shield of invisibility read the core oh let me read you Like the pages of a book I’d like to read, and read, and read again Till I can dream I can repeat the words and know them by heart Till I know you by heart Let me know you by heart I want to know you by heart There you are knowing that you love me But what you love is a ghost, a ghost of me And here I am knowing that I love you But what I love is a ghost a ghost of you knowing a ghost, knowing a ghost, knowing a ghost of you And here we are and I can’t help but love this I’ll still love this ghost love you with all that I know Here we are and I can’t help but love this I’ll still love this ghost you are my favourite ghost, you are my favourite ghost And there’s no other I’d rather know No ghost I would rather know

Here’s the plan We can say All we want, all we want Here’s the map We can go Any place, we’d like to go Let love grow & let it show Let us be with all we own Let it shine bright like the sun Let love let us be as one There’s no rules We can make up our own Bend the bars we’re taught to know There’s no end To this here All we need, never fear Let love grow & let it show Let us be with all we own Let it shine bright like the sun Let love let us be as one Here’s the plan We can feel all we do Stop the hiding like a fool would Let love grow & let it show Let us be with all we own Let it shine bright like the sun Let love let us be as one, let love let us be as one Let love let us be as one

All is Love 03:05
With the coming of age And the coming and going of days With the storms and the floods and the summer sun's rays All is love, all is love With the dark and the light And the tears of laughter we cry With the time and the ticking of clocks in the night All is love, all is love And please never forget, please never give up In the dark of the night, all is light Please never forget, please never give up With the moon and the stars in the sky up above All is love, all is love With the baby’s first steps And the hope we can pass on our best With the smiles and the joy of what makes us connect All is love And I tie my heart to a string and connect it to yours If I cry or I shout please never doubt it’s because All is love, all is love And please never forget, please never give up In the dark of the night, all is light Please never forget, please never give up With the moon and the stars in the sky up above All is love, all is love

I Would 03:51
I would give anything anything just to be with you and I would do anything anything just to make you smile even if only for a while I would go anywhere anywhere just to stay with you I would love everything everything of your mind But you cant, you wont, you don’t know I could be everything everything you have ever dreamed of If you would if you would if you would let me stay You could give everything everything that you are to me If you would if you would if you would I would say That we can, you know, we can grow But only if you will, give some, give me something to hold Hold on to, don’t go, don’t let go ‘cause all that I would want All that I would want, all I would want is gone Hold on, don’t go, don’t let go

The Wheel 03:48
They tell us there is a place that we need, we need to get to We keep on climbing to get to the top, to get up above and we climb, and we climb, and we climb They tell us there is a road to go by, it’s paved with memories, haunting every try to get ahead to keep on driving just to leave them behind and we drive, and we drive, and we drive Be the wheel that spins, be the wheel that drives Be the light that shines and the dark that creeps beneath Be the one that hopes for another’s home Knowing all that we know is that we never know oh keep your eyes on the road He tells me he knows, where I should walk to They tell me they know, who I should follow But how could he know, oh surely he don’t, oh surely they don’t So I drive, and I drive, and I drive So I drive, and I drive, and I hope That I’m the wheel that spins, and I’m the wheel that drives That I’m the light that shines and the dark that creeps beneath To be the one that hopes for another’s home Knowing all that I know is that I never know Be the wheel that spins, be the wheel that drives Be the light that shines and the dark that creeps beneath Be the one that hopes for another’s home Knowing all that we know is that we never know oh keep our eyes on the road Try to keep your eyes on the road Don’t tell me he knows, where I should walk to Don’t tell me they know, who I should follow ‘cause how could he know, oh surely he don’t, oh surely they don’t So I drive, and I drive, and I drive So I drive, and I drive, and I drive

Oh what it feels like, feels like to be real Show me what it feels like, feels like to feel Oh what it looks like. looks like to be true show me what it looks like, looks like to be with you Tell me what it sounds like, sounds like to sing to have every word ring, ring ring true and every word said, every word said every word sung oh, every word sung about you Oh how can we fight, how can we stop falling When bodies collide, under a spell-bound, unfound can’t justify the lies Tell me what it sounds like, sounds like to sing to have every word ring, oh ring ring true to have every word said, every word said every word sung oh, every word sung about you I sing sing sing, sing about you and I dance dance dance, till the sun, till the sun it sets and rises, rough and ready here I am, here I am and I sing sing sing, I sing over you and we dance dance dance, till the sun, till the sun it sets and rises, rough and ready, here I am Every inch naked, every inch naked for you, naked for you
10.
Some will love you, some will hate Some will follow and some will lead the way Some will speak out, some will lie Some would die for you and some will wonder why you didn’t try Some will haunt you, some will never part They keep the ghost of you forever in their hearts In their hearts, in their hearts Forever in their hearts Their broken hearts The one that mattered, the one that showed you hope The one that picked you forever left alone The one they speak of when asking how you are The one you left behind forever in your heart In your heart, in your heart Forever in your heart Your broken heart
11.
This point in time, a moment to be As I take a step it’s already gone further to the sea This point I make, is never quite right As soon as the words are said I’ve changed my mind It’s all just water running under, just water running under the bridge The moment I have, it’s already gone As quick as the morning comes the sun sets into dawn And as I disappear, as quick as I find I know it will come and go and come and go It will come and go and come and go again It’s all just water running under, just water running under the bridge It’s all just water running under, all the water running under the bridge I watch the stars, as the light sets in I roam through the parks, as the trees shed their skin The seasons will change, just as we will grow old and I walk along, this winding road oh won’t you come along, this winding road Oh give me the water running under, the water running under the bridge Drinking the water running under, all the water running under the bridge ‘Cause with the changing of the seasons, the changing of the feelings it’s the thirst that will remind us just to let it all be water under the bridge
12.
No Words 04:00
Oh words, no words can say it No smile, no hug will do Oh words, no words can speak it So in silence I am here No meals, no meals can fill it This void, this hunger for a breath No eyes, no eyes can see it So in darkness I am here I’m here, I’m here, right here with you I’m here, right here, here with you No lines, no writing on a page No letters written full of love could say And time, time is fading away I wish there was a way to make it stay But I’m here, I’m here, right here with you I’m here, right here, here with you Come here I’ll be your shoulder to cry on when you need one Don’t fear, we’ll all fly with the doves And in time you’ll see these tears are only pools of love In time you’ll see these tears are only pools of love
