Track Name: Highway of Life
Same old feeling coming down
The blood flows up, head spinning 'round
I’ve been here so many times before
And I still keep coming back for more

I’ve been graced, embraced, enraptured by love
Oh I just can’t seem to get enough
I’ve been flashed bashed trashed crashed down to the floor
And I still keep coming back for more

‘cause I’m back on the highway of life
‘cause I’m back on the highway of life
‘cause I’m back on the highway of life
Back on the highway of life
Track Name: I Can't Say
We’ve shared a lifetime
We’ve shared a love
We’ve also shared the bedtime
We’ve been above

We’ve been lost and found
We’ve been dog gone 'round
Sometimes we sunk so deep to sea
And now you’ve left me to flee free

And I can’t say
I wanted you
I can’t say
I needed you
To stay
With me
Forever
Track Name: You Were Mine
I got your letter today in the mail
You said you wanted to come back today
I still got some feelings, still got some tears
I’ve felt your presence around me all these years

I can’t be angry with you all of the time
I couldn’t stand you not being mine
But I gotta go my own way
I can’t linger for you for the rest of my days

You were mine
‘till the end of time

I can’t decide on what to do
I feel my heart has split in two
I have given you all of me
You gotta give something baby can’t you see
That I still want you but nothing has changed,
If you don’t open up you can never be amazed

You were mine
‘till the end of time

I used to search the city for your face
It’s real easy to fall off of grace
I always had a feeling I would see you again
Same eyes, same smell
But we could never contain one another
I guess we were wrong in being right for each other

You were mine
‘till the end of time
Track Name: Don't Let My Heart
Butterflies fill me inside and around
the thought of you makes my heart feel drowned
In a pool of passion and excite
But I got my blood here at fright
Goodness could come out of this
Blend with it and don’t be missed

Grounded are my thoughts of clay
Help them mold in a better way
Love you if you will
Don’t let my heart be still

Let it fly above to the greatest heights
Free yourself from the demanding light
If I give, I think you’ll take
But will you give for me, is this fake?

Grounded are my thoughts of clay
Help them mold in a better way
Love you if you will
Don’t let my heart be still
Track Name: Spring Girl
Spring,
Came so suddenly on me
Bouncing free, secretly
Spring,
How do you do? that thing you do
Up and down, I want you

Spring girl,
Are you hearing my call
I’m up on the wall, I don’t mind if I fall
Spring girl,
What a killer bee you are
I can’t believe, I made it this far

"You have gone too far with my feelings", she said
"You’ve been reckless with my heart", she said
"No more, no more, I’ll put out my stop sign now
Thank you very much, no trespassing"

Spring girl,
Bouncing hard, hitting walls
Stinging words, flippin’ birds
Spring girl,
Where are you, I ain’t coming through
And now I bounce like stones and breaking my bones
Spring girl,
I’ll sing you a song, it won’t do you no wrong
It won’t do you no wrong, if I sing you a song

"You have gone too far with my feelings", she said
"You’ve been reckless with my heart", she said
"No more, no more, I’ll put out my stop sign now
Thank you very much, no trespassing"
Track Name: War for Peace
And again the sky has fallen again
Again we’re hunted again
Sirens all around are calling us
To be confronted again

And again I hear the sound of a million voices
Protesting their lungs out for peace
They say "leave them alone, you’re doing it wrong
There are better ways to protect our home"
Protect our home

And I heard an Israeli captain on the TV last night
Saying how he dreamt his kids wouldn’t join up the fight
He said "I hope this is my last war
I hope the world understands what all this is for"

And war might be the best way for peace
War might just be the best way for peace

So hold me tight while everything in sight seems crazy
Everyone around seems to know what’s going wrong with the world
Imagine we could just drive through all the way to Europe
You know they all had their wars and the roads are now free
And I wanted to tell you what a nice time I had last night
Oh that first kiss was so right, so right.

And war might be the best way for peace
War might just be the best way for peace

I hope this is my last war
I hope the world understands what all this is for
Track Name: In a Boat
Three of us, in a boat
Downstreaming, what a float
With my rain and his mice
And the other guy’s advice

“I still miss her today”, I say
They let out a sigh and they die

One of us, in a boat
Upstreaming, taking notes
With a blister on my finger
And lonely thoughts hung out to linger

“I still miss you tonight”, I shout
Tomorrow I’ll miss her, no doubt

And I’m not sure if it’s true
What to do with my heart
For a start.

“I still miss you tonight”, I shout
Tomorrow I’ll miss her, no doubt
Track Name: You're Ok
And again I choose to see the worst in me
And again I go down below
And a friend might be there to see me through
And I wish I was here to see this too

Once upon a time things looked so very clear
Walking the line put me here
And now I don’t hear the same refrain
‘cause it’s a brand new song all over again

And I might say you’re ok
And I might say you’re stuck in place
And I might say you’re wheeling away
I might say, you’re ok

Gramophone in a speed spinning disc world
Catch a cold, watch the sun unfold
It’s a tough place’s tale to be told
Breathe in the air and be prepared to hold
What seems backwards might be forward
You just can’t know what I know that you need to know

And I might say you’re ok
And I might say you’re stuck in place
And I might say you’re wheeling away

And I might say you’re ok
And I might say you’re stuck in place
And I might say you’re wheeling your own way
You’re ok

You’re ok, don’t be scared
‘cause you’re ok
Don’t be scared
You’re ok
Track Name: Many Earthquakes
Little by little the glass fills up
The sum of my fears is cashing up
Little by little my glass cracks up
Little earthquakes make me

Lost causes and lost time
Lost love smog up your line
I agree we lose our minds sometimes
Little earthquakes make me

I pay the price I pay my debt
And every day I pay life’s rent
But it all comes back to you in the end
Many earthquakes make me

What I am
What I am

Read your map, read it well
Your life might be made of magic spells
Red rivers of time flow in my veins
I don’t believe he’s playing games
With motor cars and crashing trains
Shooting stars and aeroplanes
Many earthquakes make me

What I am
Track Name: Let it Out
You’re hurt girl
Your heart girl is locked
You’re angry at love
And hungry for love

You’re looking for gallants
to break your walls
But the dragon blows
and they all fail, burn and fall

Where’d you put the keys, girl?

Let it out, Let it out

You’re here girl
Your fear girl holds you back
You’ll have to get hurt again
There’s no doubt

That’s what hearts do
That’s what hearts do
That’s what they do

Let it out, Let it out
Breathe in Breathe out
Breathe in Breathe out

Where’d you put the keys, girl?
Where’d you put the keys to your girl?
Where’d you put the keys, girl?
