Track Name: Halcyon Nights
A view is not a view if not with somebody
A smile is just a smile if not from inside

And you, you are not alone
No you, you are not alone

The record plays our songs
So we all dance along
The moon it lights the way
Until the break of day
So let’s all dance for love
Cos we’re born and die alone
But in the in between
(Gotta) take the love we need to keep on and on

Rise with the sun, you give me your body
Blinded by your light, i’m drowning in your arms

With you I am not alone
With you, I am not alone

The record plays our songs
So we all dance along
The moon it lights the way
Until the break of day
So let’s all dance for love
Cos we’re born and die alone
But in the in between
(Gotta) take the love we need to keep on and on
Track Name: The Garden
I’m ready to rest in a restless place
It’s a feeling I get most every day
I’m turning my gaze to the sun
I like it on my face
I hear you on the breeze

Got a feeling I’ve been here a long long time
Carried away by the noonday sun
My thoughts play out like a show
I watch them from my seat
In my garden I can be

The scent of a rose takes hold of me
While a fire burns far away
Birds fly high up above
They sing their songs of love
I hear you on the breeze

Got a feeling I’ve been here a long long time
Carried away by the noonday sun
My thoughts play out like a show
I watch them from my seat
In my garden I can be.

I say now oooo, ohhh, oo, oh oh
I cry now oooo, ohh, oo, oh oh
cos I can be myself, for a while
This inner child
Is alright

The failing light revives me
As the moon takes over the show
A cold chill whips through my hair
Orion hunts the air
I hear you on the breeze

Got a feeling I’ve been here a long long time
Carried away by the noonday sun
My thoughts play out like a show
I watch them from my seat
In my garden I can be
Track Name: Head In The Clouds
A terrible shame
I didn’t know till I was caught up in half way there
A wonderful game
I wasn’t playing so behind me passed ten years


And the newspaper said
There’s no way to get ahead
With the coming of our sons
It goes on and on and on

Walking around with my head in the clouds
No light to show me where to go
Walking around got no feet on the ground
The higher i go


With tired eyes
Can’t see the future for all of the looking back
What a crying shame
I missed my time
Leaving life up on the shelf


Still the newspaper said
There’s no way to get ahead
And with the coming of our son’s
It goes on and on and on


Walking around with my head in the clouds
No light to show me where to go
Walking around got no feet on the ground
The higher I go
In time honoured style, i’ll be here for a while standing tall
Walking around with my head in The clouds
Waiting for what? I don’t know


And with the coming of our sons
And the light that we downplay (no no)
For those good people we know
It’ll go on and on and on

Walking around with my head in the clouds
No light to show me where to go
Walking around got no feet on the ground
The higher I go
In time honoured style, i’ll be here for a while standing tall
Walking around with my Head in The clouds -
Waiting for what? I don’t know

Well I’m walking around, head in the clouds
I can’t see!
Do you believe in me?
Track Name: Last Man Standing
Roads, we’ve walked down them all
But why can’t we see
That we’re going round in circles?

Fight, for what you believe
But what if it means
That you fall short of the middle?

It’s funny how we, take what we want
But not what we need

Day after day
We dance and we sway
To the beat of the drum
Of someone else’s song
Did I just catch a glimpse of what I thought we could’ve been?
But we’re so busy hanging on
To make sense of all this
But what if your the last man standing?

Run, as fast as you can
Into the seas
Hoping they’ll wash you far from
Here, far from the heap
Do u see what I see?
We’re breaking in a million pieces

So which way is up
When we’re staring downwards
It’s a wonder how we’re still here?

Day after day
We dance and we sway
To the beat of the drum
Of someone else’s song
Did I just catch a glimpse of what I thought we could’ve been?
But we’re so busy hanging on
To make sense of all this
But what if your the last man standing?
Track Name: Walls
We’re one and one and I cant stand
To be the girl holding your hand just to
See you smiling again
Terrified of going alone so i
Give you one more go can I
Keep the wolf from my door

But I’m wanting more, than I care to explore
I’m calling a truce, you know I’m through
And a 100 eyes could see where we went wrong
Just give me someone to keep me strong

All we need, all we need, all we need, all we need, all we need, all we need is someone who -
Is gonna take the time, time, time, time, time, to see right through
All the walls that we have built so high
Yeah, when I find you
It’s gonna take timeeeeee
To break right through
To break right through

I rip it up to start it again so I
To give me one more chance can I
To move those mountains up ahead
Show me the road less walked on
So I can give all I got and some
Body show me how to live

But I’m wanting more, than I care to explore
I’m calling a truce, you know I’m through
And a 100 eyes could see where it went wrong
Just give someone to keep me strong

Chorus
Track Name: We Speak In Silence
Alone again
(We’re) victims of words we should have never said
(There’s) a prison of truth inside your bed

Eye to eye
A courtroom of fire
We’re just doing time
Chalking up lines until we’re done


Silence
Silence
Silence in your room
Silence, there’s a silence
Silence fills your room

Fake it thru
Forever fairweather in the scheme of you
now the curtain falls
the lights go down

Silence
Silence
Silence in your room
Silence, there’s a silence
Silence fills your room


I recognize your face but I cant seem to place where quite froooom
But now, If loves a lullaby how will I sleep tonight

And we speak
With no words
Cos we know
That’s it’s over

Ooo Ooo Ooo
Ooo Ooo Ooo
Track Name: Lucky Day
There's a girl, a girl that you know
She's so exposed, but you like her anyway Like, not quite love, it's all just the same, it all ends anyways

A dream dancing through your room
Some things in life just bloom

It looks like its gonna be your lucky day
It looks like its gonna be your lucky day
And them wild horses, they won't, drag you away
From what's gonna be your lucky day, my friend

Try try as you might,
you will not find A better place than she
Let it grow & she'll let you know
that you are the one that she wants everyday

A dream breaking through your blues
You too old to play but too young to throw it away

It looks like its gonna be your lucky day
It looks like its gonna be your lucky day
And them wild horses, they won't, drag you away
From what's gonna be your lucky day, my friend

There's a girl, a girl that you know
She's so exposed, but you like her anyway And you know, when you know
It's all just the same, it all ends anyways
You’ve waited a whole lifetime
For this girl to be by your side

There's a girl, a girl that we know, she's so exposed, but you love her anyway
Track Name: Midnight in the City
Cast your weapon carefully
And then follow the girl into the night
Tap her on her shoulder
And she’s so pretty, love the fear in her eyes
Ohh, it came as no surprise

And then, then, life for his laid out bare
Crawling on her hands and knees
And then, then, last breath she gave as he took her away
Crawling on her hands and knees
A yellow sign for us and them to see

Midnight in the city, no time for love no time for, pain
Midnight in the city, no time for love no time for, pain


And then, then, his hell for hers to harm she will come
All at once he’s satisfied, yes he is
And then, then, into a dream born not to run from
All at once he’s satisfied
A yellow sign for us and them to see

Midnight in the city, no time for love no time for, pain
Midnight in the city, no time for love no time for, pain
Track Name: Two Birds
Let's star in a movie about ourselves
Be in a book upon our shelves

Starcrossed lovers in a sonnet for two
A whole new meaning to the words 'I love you'
Holding me close, this weight is no more


Two birds two birds that fly together
They stay stay stay forever
Two birds two birds that fly together
They stay stay stay Lovers


The days grow shorter we're no longer of youth
The cracks have deepened but I'm always for you
A life like a diamond, our love goes on


We're just two birds and I knew at once but I...
...couldn't seem to make up my mind
But when I see you coming I'm fine
There's no words to describe..........

Two birds two birds that fly together
They stay stay stay forever
Two birds two birds that fly together
They stay stay stay Lovers
