Track Name: Paradise Lost
You crack me up
Make me laugh
Make me cry
Enjoy each moment
Of this precious time

The world keeps saying
Be patient with love
No stress to break us
Where would we be now?

And I don’t want to fall
With you in my arms
If paradise is lost
Where to now?

Nobody’s listening
Nobody knows
How much we’re missing
Down below

And I don’t want to fall
With you in my arms
My love for you right now
Is all that you need

I want to wake with you
Not just in my mind
I want to talk to you
In the sunshine

You don’t want to fall
With me in your arms
Your love for me right now
Is all you can give

And I don’t wanna die
With regrets in my life
Best to let it go
When we’re feeling high
Track Name: Seagull
The streets are empty
Everything is closed
And the night-time is waking
Where does everybody go?

So many lonely hearts broken
Broken in the night
Roaming the streets to find
Some warmth from someone else’s fire

I’m drawing breath again
From the sights that I see
I’m breaking down again
From the news that I read

And the shops are opening
People busying around
But there are the few of us
who didn’t sleep at all last night

Give a little help you say
Give a little cash today
To those who are less
Fortunate
But it doesn’t work that way
Doesn’t work that way, you know
I’m drawing breath again
from the sights that I see
I’m breaking down again
from the news that I read

I’m drawing breath again
from the sights that I see
I’m breaking down again
from the news that I read
Track Name: Just For You
Have I been dumb letting you go?
Wasting your time didn’t you know?
Sometimes I scream, sometimes I shout
And I say things I don’t really mean

And this time I spent with you
Made me happy and made me sad too
But it’s time I spent with you
Time I spent with you

And I can change too
And I can change too

Over these weeks I realised
I don’t understand and I’m in disguise
of what I really feel
of what I really feel

And I can change too
And I can change too
And I can change too
Just For You

And I can change too
And I can change too
And I can change too
Just For You
Just For You
Just For You
Track Name: Home
When the summer nights have gone
I’m on my own again,
The winter days begun

My mind is on the run
No sight of you again

And now the leaves are falling
The short dark days are calling
You’ll be going home

As the summer sun draws close to fade
It’s cold while I sleep

And now the leaves are falling
The short dark days are calling
You’ll be going home

All the flowers are closing
The thoughts of you unfolding
You’ll be flying home
You’ll be flying home
Home
You’ll be flying home
Home

My life’s gone away
It’s cold where you laid

My life’s gone away
It’s cold where you laid

My life’s gone away
It’s cold while I sleep
It’s cold where you laid
Track Name: Say Goodbye
Gradually I feel
Getting to know you well
As the daylight comes
As the daylight falls

Somehow we see
No matter how we feel
If it all breaks down
Will you be standing by me?

Don’t want to fall in love
again and again
Just want to let you go and
numb the pain
We have to say goodbye and
Just be friends
Leaving, loving you has to be the hardest thing

Gradually I feel
Getting to know you well
As the walls break down
And the daylight comes

Don’t want to fall in love
again and again
Just want to let you go and
numb the pain
We have to say goodbye and
Just be friends
Leaving, loving you has to be the hardest thing

Been around
And been around
And been around
And been around




Again and again
Again and again
I hit the wall again
Again and again
Again and again

Don’t want to fall in love
Again and again
Just want to let you go and
Numb the pain
We have to say goodbye and
Just be friends
Leaving, loving you has to be the hardest thing

Don’t want to fall in love
Again and again
Just want to let you go and
Numb the pain
We have to say goodbye and
Just be friends
Leaving, loving you has to be the hardest thing
Track Name: Maybe I
Wished you goodbye
On that lonely night
I remember
Your head in your hands
Looking down
Time apart
Is what you said to me
Just for a while I feel.

Could it be that I can’t decide on anything?
Maybe I just need some time to myself

Babe you’re the best
The Best for me
There’s no doubt
How lucky I feel
Maybe I, maybe I’m afraid I’ll get used to you
Getting used to you, means I might lose you too

Could it be that I can’t decide on anything?
Maybe I just need some time to myself

Could it be that I can’t decide on anything?
Maybe I just need some time to myself

To myself
To myself
To myself
Myself
Myself
To myself
Track Name: Bluebell
All I want is to lie with you
In the Bluebells beneath the trees
Stay up through the night
Keep warm by your side
Fall asleep beneath the stars

Only wanna be close to you
Cos you’re the best thing in my life
Only wanna be close to you
Cos you’re the best thing in my life

You’re a superman and I’m a one-woman band
But somehow we work it out
Never in the same place at the same time
But that depends on a state of mind
Thinking of you too

Only wanna be close to you
Cos you’re the best thing in my life
Only wanna be close to you
Cos you’re the best thing in my life
You’re the best thing in my life
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Only wanna be close to you
Cos you’re the best thing in my life
Only wanna be close to you
Cos you’re the best thing in my life
The best thing baby yeah
In my life
In my life
In my life
In my life yeah
You’re the best thing
In my life
You’re the best thing
In my life
Track Name: I Sit & Hide
I sit & hide
In this empty shell of mine
Cracking by the fire
Bound by you

And only time
Will make me understand
Why there’s so few like you and me

Tonight I cried
For the first time
How weak you are
Not too shine
And as I fall into these empty arms
As I fall into these empty arms of you
Lost within this space
Only by what I think I know

It’s not too late
To face all your fears
The winds are calling the rain
The rain is coming down

Fly with me
Won’t you get high with me
Cos my mind is broken by
The unrequited sound of you

Tonight I cried
For the first time
How weak you are
Not too shine
And as I fall into these empty arms
And as I fall into these empty arms of you
Lost within this space
Only by what I think I know
I know
About what I think I know
I know
I know
I know
Track Name: Insight
And in this time of confusion
I’m feeling my way through the dark
Keep asking the same questions
Does anyone know the secret to my heart?

And is it all an illusion?
The voices in my head
I listened to the words of a poet
What I really needed was an action man instead

What if we met in another place and time?
No more dreaming
Just want some peace of mind

And I made no judgment of you
But I made a fool of myself
Believing that feeling and intuition
Was enough

And I hope you’ll forgive me
But I made no joke of you
I underestimated the importance of being cool

What if we met in another place and time?
No more dreaming
Just want some peace of mind
What if you are here with me now?
Only blue sky not a cloud insight
Insight
Insight
Insight

What if we met in another place and time?
No more dreaming
Just want some peace of mind
What if you are here with me now?

Only blue sky not a cloud insight
Insight
Insight
Insight

Gonna turn it around
Upside down
Gonna turn it around
Upside down
Gonna turn it around
Upside down
Track Name: Paper Thin
Broken down
This time around
Words are so paper thin

Every word
You speak you mean
But what about everything in between

I’m out of love
Taking it slowly
Getting closer

Missing me
I can feel
There’s no use communicating
Its confusing me

Sometimes we need to be alone
So that we can grow
So that we can grow

I’m out of love
Taking it slowly
Getting closer

I’m out of love
Taking it slowly
Getting closer

I’m out of love
Taking it slowly
Getting closer
Falling again
Falling again

Taking it slowly
Getting closer
Falling again
Falling again
