Track Name: Wave If You're Feeling Good
Wave If You're Feeling Good

I can you feel it coming, can you feel it too?
I can feel a change in the air, a change for me and you
I think it's for the better, I think it's for the good
I think it's gonna blow through the streets and avenues
of every neighbourhood

Over the water, I hear them singing and boy does it sound good
Language ain't no barrier to being understood

I can see it coming, tell me that you see it too
I can see an end to the heartache, an end to all the blues
It won't be so hard – it's gonna be so easy
It's gonna change the way we feel about each other
it's gonna change the daily news


I can see it in your eyes, I can see it in your smile
I can feel it in my bones and I can feel it all the while
Getting closer by the day, feeling freer all the way
Like a warmer kind of glow and I don't what to say, but

Hold your hands up and wave if you're feeling good
Hold your hands up high and wave to the neighbourhood
Waving to the world, wave to every living soul
Waving to the world, we're all a part of one that makes us whole
Track Name: Open Your Heart
OPEN YOUR HEART

Open your heart like a summer flower
And let the colours shine
You stand apart with such a gentle power
How i wish that you were mine

Like the sun, in the sky
You are golden up on high
Like the moon on the sea
You are silver you are free

It’s been a dark kind of endless winter
Now it’s time to shine a light
It's been so cold but the ice will splinter
If we focus on what's right

Like the sun, in the sky
You are golden up on high
Like the moon on the sea
You are silver you are free

instrumental

Twentyfour hour rolling news
Can dim the brightest day
See all the hope for a brighter future
Dwindle far away

Like the sun, in the sky
You are golden up on high
Like the moon on the sea
You are silver you are free

Open your heart like a summer flower
And let the colours shine
You stand apart with such a gentle power
How i wish that you were mine

Like the sun, in the sky
You are golden up on high
Like the moon on the sea
You are silver you are free

instrumental

sun, sky, golden, high, moon, sea, silver, free
Track Name: I Must Be Dreaming
I Must Be Dreaming

Sometimes it feels so good to see the sun go down
Sometimes if feels so cool just walking through this town
And when I think of you just what I like to do
Even my wildest dreams I know they will come true

Now I'm dreaming – I can see your face
I must be dreaming – I just love this place
I know I'm dreaming – like I can float on air
I must be dreaming – goodbye to all those cares

Catch the bus to work just like every day
And hope that you get on that's all I have to say
Adventure everyday I know the sparks will fly
No matter what may fail I always feel this high

Now I'm dreaming – I can see your face
I must be dreaming – I just love this place
I know I'm dreaming – like I can float on air
I must be dreaming – goodbye to all those cares

Now we go back to work just like good workers do
Now we go back to work 'cos we got things to do
Track Name: Beyond Main Street
Beyond Main Street

Once you've moved away that's where you have to stay
Beyond main street
Once you've made the break you can't relocate
Onto main street
I spread my wings but the wind was still
I didn't really fly but I sure felt the chill
Beyond main street
Beyond main street

A fresh-faced youth, I crashed into the truth
Beyond main street
A young know-nuthin' I was out of my depth
Beyond main street
A fool will rush in where angels fear to tread
With a pocket full of dreams I was over my head
Beyond main street
Beyond main street

The hunger to prove is a young man's groove
You got to get back up every time you lose
Beyond main street
Beyond main street

The school of hard knocks packs a hell of a shock
Beyond main street
You look but you've found there's only stony ground
Beyond main street
If you don't end up lucky at least some of the way
It's an uphill struggle every day
A fool will rush in where angels fear to tread
With a pocket full of dreams I was over my head
Beyond main street
Beyond main street

The plan supposed to make you a self-made man
But the plan went South, made out of sand
Nothing plus nothing don't add up to a lot
And nothing plus nothing, that's what you got
Beyond main street
Track Name: Somebody Like You
Somebody Like You

I got a thing about leaving, got a thing about being on my own
Got a thing about leaving, makes me want to hang my head and moan

I know you’ve got to go, you tell me that it’s so
You’ve got to follow where it leads you, well we all do
And sometimes that’s down a different road

But if the wind blows fair, if the waves that carry us break softly
On a distant shore, as the sun goes down and we’ll both be there

You can tell me how you’re feeling
You can tell me where you’ve been
Fill me with the wonder of the things you’ve seen
The life you’ve lived down a different road

And while the world’s been spinning on its axis
And governments still feed on taxes
And broken hearts don’t always mend
It’s pretty rare to meet a real good friend
And while the world’s been spinning on its axis
And governments still need our taxes
And broken hearts don’t always mend
It’s pretty rare to meet a real good friend

A real good friend, somebody like you, a real good friend
Track Name: I Can't Give It Up
I Can’t Give It Up

Give it up, give it up,
give it up, give it up,
I can’t give it up

How many miles till I get home?
Too many miles to count, no matter where you roam

How may times till i get to win?
Too many times to count and that’s a mortal sin

We’re coming home, we’re really coming home
We’re coming home, we’re really coming home
We’re coming home, we’re really coming home
We’re coming home, we’re really coming home

How many times have I tried to say
Too many times to count, don’t matter anyway

The only thing that matters to me today
Is getting back home where I’m gonna stay

We’re coming home, we’re really coming home
We’re coming home, we’re really coming home
We’re coming home, we’re really coming home
We’re coming home, we’re really coming home

Give it up, give it up,
give it up, give it up,
I can’t give it up
Track Name: Irresistible
Irresistible

I bet that if I was a cowboy, I would ride the range in search of you
Long days in the saddle, with the hot sun bleaching everything I do

Somewhere near a water hole, in the shade of a cactus tree or two
A faint reflection in the water, makes me think that I see you
Tall in the saddle

Maybe I’m just dehydrated, lost inside of dreams of you
’Cos in my dreams you’d notice me and find me just like I find you
Irresistible

I bet that if I was a baker, I would bake some bread for you
Long days in the kitchen, with the oven baking everything I do

Then somewhere near the hottest flame, flickering and dancing like they do
A shape I see of red and gold, it’s moving like the way that you do
(A golden french baguette)

Maybe I’m just dehydrated, lost inside of dreams of you
’Cos in my dreams you’d notice me and find me just like I find you
Irresistible
Track Name: One-Time Deal
One-Time Deal

Is it the moon dictates the choices we make
Or the tide that leaves us up high
Is it the wind that changes the way that we face
Or the sun that shrivels us dry

Is it the mist that clouds the judgements we make
Or the rain that washes us clean
Is it the dark that hides the emotions we feel
Or the light that shows us we're mean

It's only a one-time deal, devoid of guarantees
It's only a one-time stake, and that's for real

Is it the hour that make-eth the man
Or the clothes that make him stand tall
Is it the money that we manage to make
Or the height that we stand when we fall

Maybe the love we continue to seek
Defines the shape of our soul
Maybe the risk we face when required to speak
Contributes to making us whole

It's only a one-time deal, devoid of guarantees
It's only a one-time stake, and that's for real
Track Name: When The Wind Blows High
When the wind blows high

when the wind blows high and the grey clouds chase
across the sky in a crazy race
and I go tumbling down the helter skelter
in a fall from grace

when the wind blows high and the feelings break
across the sky with a violent shake
and I go tumbling down the ghost train
of my mistakes

in true isolation, I hope for salvation
to feed me the lie that I matter
In a world full of tears, supressing all my fears
When all that I build just gets scattered

when the wind blows high and it cuts up tough
when the storm is blowing and the sea is rough
and I go crying for my mother
to save me

in true isolation, I hope for salvation
to feed me the lie that I matter
in a world full of tears, supressing all my fears
when all that I build just gets scattered

it don’t matter cos nothing matters
it don’t matter cos everything matters
it don’t matter cos nothing matters
it don’t matter cos everything matters

Instrumental

in true isolation, I hope for salvation
to feed me the lie that I matter
in a world full of tears, supressing all my fears
when all that I build just gets scattered

it don’t matter cos nothing matters
it don’t matter cos everything matters
it don’t matter cos nothing matters
it don’t matter cos everything matters
Track Name: The Drug Is Desire
THE DRUG IS DESIRE

You can’t stop the wind from blowing, through the trees
You can’t stop the sun from shining, on your enemies
You can’t stop the ice from melting, as the temperatures rise
You can’t stop the truth from rising, from a pack of lies

I can’t stop the way I feel about you
Any more than I can live my days without you
The drug is desire, and I’m on fire

You can’t stop the rain from falling, it runs back to the sea
You can’t stop the wolf from howling, it speaks to me
You can’t stop the stars from shining, in a velvet sky
You can’t stop the moon from rising, when the tide is high

I can’t stop the way I feel about you
Any more than I can live my days without you
The drug is desire, and I’m on fire

Instrumental

You can’t stop the wind from blowing, through the trees
You can’t stop the sun from shining, on your enemies
You can’t stop the ice from melting, as the temperatures rise
You can’t stop the truth from rising, from a pack of lies

I can’t stop the way I feel about you
Any more than I can live my days without you
The drug is desire, and I’m on fire
The drug is desire, and I’m on fire
Track Name: These Times
These Times

Nobody knew where the rumour started
But the word was out and the truth departed
I was inclined to dismiss it as signs
Of an over active mind
I just couldn’t see the connection to me
But I know now I was blind

Oh Lord, will you help me and throw a line?
Oh, non believer calling the divine
Oh, I'm a miserable sinner
But I think I’ve seen the signs
Oh, Bodhisattva, won't you
save me from these times?

If you lie enough do you start to believe it?
If you cry enough do you start to redeem it?
We live on the edge of a moment in time
When we all might fade away
Nobody knows when enough is too much
Till the scientists all say

Oh Lord, will you help me and throw a line?
Oh, non believer calling the divine
Oh, I'm a miserable sinner
But I think I’ve seen the signs
Oh, Bodhisattva, won't you
save me from these times?
Track Name: Roll The Dice
Roll The Dice

I know it stands to reason
I probably won't win
But I can't help believing
Take a chance on a spin

The world is on its axis
And that's the way it stays
Dinosaurs once ruled the earth
Not one of them was saved

Times change, some things carry on
Some things will stop
And forever be gone
You have to take a chance on a spin
Can a loser ever win

Somewhere it is written
High up in the sky
The future is a script we follow
Till the day we die

But I am not as certain
That it's all set in stone
Every step that we go forward
Takes into the unknown

And who knows which way it will go
It's burning me up can't you see that it's so
You have to take a chance on a spin
Can a loser ever win

To live in isolation
A hermit on a beach
Disconnected from society
Impossible to reach

We have to work together
Together that's the key
Forces we can generate
Are deeper than the sea

And who knows which way it will go
It's burning me up can't you see that it's so
Times change, some things carry on
Some things will stop
And forever be gone
You have to take a chance on a spin
Can a loser ever win

So roll the dice
And see what we get
We might just strike it lucky
But we have to take a bet
