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

Seagull 05:40
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

Just For You 02:58
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

Home 03:20
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

Say Goodbye 04:13
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

Maybe I 04:33
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

Bluebell 03:39
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

I Sit & Hide 05:53
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

Insight 04:07
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

Paper Thin 03:32
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
