Track Name: Bird on my shoulder
Bird on my shoulder

It’s running through like a bad disease
Through my head down to my feet
My mind is sore and my body it aches
Trying to find the time to just relax

I miss my home I miss my family
I miss the love that they give to me
When I fall into a deep dark hole
They’re the ones who have the rope

When I thought I’d hit the ground
Something turned me upside down
Just when I thought things were gonna get worse
Then along came a little bird

There’s a bird on my shoulder and he’s singing softly to me
Telling me that all these things are not as big as they seem
And to greet each day with love when you wake

My pockets empty, no loose change
That’s nothing new but it’s bugging me today
I wish I could fly like a bird in the wind
I wish I could forget all these things

When I thought I’d hit the ground
Something turned me upside down
Just when I thought things were gonna get worse
Then along came a little bird

There’s a bird on my shoulder and he’s singing softly to me
Telling me that all these things are not as big as they seem
And to greet each day with love when you wake
Track Name: Sway
Sway

Baby girl, please don’t be scared tonight
I will send all of my love back to you
Don’t be afraid to follow what your heart believes is true
I believe in you

Don’t let anyone sway you
And I promise I won’t take you away
Don’t let anyone sway you
And I promise I won’t take you away
Believe what I say

You dance so gracefully across the room
And I stare, I stare at the wonder of you
You’re too young to hold the weight of someone else
You’re so brave and you do it so well

Don’t let anyone sway you
And I promise I wont take you away
Don’t let anyone sway you
And I promise I wont take you away
Believe what I say

You’re always in my dreams
This feeling runs deep
You’re always on my mind
I pray for you each day
The kindest heart I’ve seen
I hate to see it hurt
I give you all I have, all that you need
All that you need

Don’t let anyone sway you
And I promise I won’t take you away
Don’t let anyone sway you
Track Name: Brand new shoes
Brand New Shoes

Lying in the sun thinking back to this morning
You lay next to me do do do do do do do

I got my brand new shoes on
I got my brand new shoes on

Do do do do do

Walking down the street, smiling faces everyone I meet
Mind drifts to thoughts, thoughts of you and do do do do

I got my brand new shoes on
I got my brand new shoes on

Do do do do do

Riding on my bike through the trees falling leaves
I’ve got no where to be, no one to see, so I’ll just dream

I got my brand new shoes on
I got my brand new shoes on

Do do do do do
Track Name: Ode to John
Ode to John

All these choices were leading up to this, were leading up to this
And all these tears were leading up to this, were leading up to this

I hear your voice soft and sweetly, soft and sweetly it calms me down
Won’t you jump inside of me and I’ll play your favourite song

Ooh I missed the point I missed the point
Ooh I missed the point I missed the point
And now I’m paying

Everything that I thought I knew, that I thought I knew
Don’t mean a thing now, now I’ve gone this low there’s nothing strong enough to hold

I hear your voice soft and sweetly soft and sweetly it calms me down
Won’t you jump inside of me and I’ll play your favourite song

Ooh I missed the point I missed the point
Ooh I missed the point I missed the point
And now I’m paying

Its goodbye I guess I’ll see you when I close my eyes
Its goodbye I guess I’ll see you when I close my eyes I say goodbye
It’s goodbye I guess I’ll see you

I hear your voice soft and sweetly soft and sweetly it calms me down
Won’t you jump inside of me and I’ll play your favourite song
I hear your voice soft and sweetly soft and sweetly it calms me down
Track Name: Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights

Blow out the candles, there’s no room for light in here
My eyes are bleeding, blinded by the sight of you swollen tears
Are falling, to the ground and drifting away
And I can’t stay

So turn out the lights, turn out the lights
Turn out the lights and this feeling inside
Turn out the lights, turn out the lights
Turn out the lights and this feeling inside
Track Name: Drivel on a page
Drivel on a page

So I held my breathe, I let you walk away
With no sign that I wanted you to stay
Then I missed you, I missed you in the night
And then I missed you

So where do I go now
Now that I still want you around
And all these words that I have left to say
They’ll just turn into drivel on a page
Drivel on a page

It’s strange that one moment in time can make you crazy
Make you loose your mind
And all these walls that you build around your heart
They all come tumbling down with the strength of love

So where do I go now
Now that I still want you around
And all these words that I have left to say
They’ll just turn into drivel on a page
Drivel on a page

Shadows grow and memories they fade
The weeds get so thick the flowers dissipate
And it was nothing in anything you said
Its just the love that you gave is what I can’t forget
And all the walls we build, all the rules we break
All the hate we give and all the love we take
And all these words that I have left to say
They just turned into
Drivel on a page
Track Name: Only he
Only He

You came back, you came back when I was gone
And some other savior, someone else stole my soul

I closed the back door I slammed it shut
Now only he can have this love
Only you

Your eyes were gentle but there was a fire burning within
And I had to leave, I had to leave before it burned my skin

I closed the back door I slammed it shut
Now only he can have this love
Only you

I thought I had it all, and together we would grow old
But in the back of my mind I had doubt stronger than I could fight

I closed the back door I slammed it shut
Now no one else can have this love
Only you
Track Name: Sticks and stones
Sticks and Stones

You know the love that I have for you
It can’t be sold, sold or stolen
It’s like a thought that never leaves my mind
It’s beautiful

You have a face that tells stories of a troubled place
A black hole, a lost soul
A dream that was woken up

You’re my brother, you’re my love, you’re my sweetheart my blood
But each time that you bleed my feet get icy cold

Even though it’s going to hurt you
Even though it’s bound to kill you
You stick it in and you feed its hunger
Hunger for your blood

Sticks and stones will break your bones
But it’s the words that hurt the most
So I won’t fight you and I won’t beg
Just as long as I know, you know, I’m here

You’re my brother, you’re my love, you’re my sweetheart my blood
But each time that you bleed my feet get icy cold

Even though it’s going to hurt you
Even though it’s bound to kill you
You stick it in and you feed its hunger
Hunger for your blood
Track Name: The Whale Song
The Whale song

The whales are heading north, and I’m moving too
I’m standing against the wind, I’m trying to break through

I’m on the roof top I’m kicking down stones
For each one that tried to hit this soul
I’m on the outside I am looking in

Ooh I’m getting deeper

I feel it in the rain, it’s coming down hard
Washing this shit away, a brand new start

I’m on the roof top I’m kicking down stones
For each one that tried to hit this soul
I’m on the outside I am looking in

Ooh I’m getting deeper

The whales are heading north, and I’m moving too
I’m standing against the wind, I’m trying to break through

I’m on the roof top I’m kicking down stones
For each one that tried to hit this soul
I’m on the outside I am looking in

Ooh I’m getting deeper
Track Name: On the road
On the road

I went out on the road
Trying to find my feet
Searching for piece of mind
I found it was with me all the time

Winter, come, gone
Striped me of all I’d known
Of love of life of truth of lies
Funny how you change sometimes

I want to taste it
Life, I want to feel it under my veins

Miles and miles of dusty road
I listen hard to the stories I am told
Of land, of sea, of earth and sky
Ears open, my heart is on fire

I want to taste it
Life, I want to feel it under my veins

I went out on the road
Trying to find my feet
Searching for piece of mind
I found it was with me all the time
Track Name: August Rain
August rain

I watched you breathe, silently, slowly
You said hello, once today, there’s so much more that I want to say
The August rain, is pouring down, outside this window all the lights are out
Each moment I pray while you’re lying still but no one ever answers and no one ever will

Who decides when we go, who turns out the lights no body knows
Does god exist and if he does then why is he taking you from me

You are my wife, you are my lover, you are a mother and you are my friend
And close to my heart, I‘ll keep you there oh I’m scared to fall apart

You’ve earned your wings, you’ll float away, I can’t hide this hurt and I can’t hide this pain
Bring me the sun, bring me day when everything’s right back in its place
With you close to me, with you by my side

Who decides when we go who turns out the lights no body knows
Does god exist and if he does then why is he taking you from me

You are my wife, you are my lover, you are a mother and you are my friend
And close to my heart, I’ll keep you there Oh I’m scared to fall apart

The August rain, is pouring down, outside this window all the lights are out
Each moment I pray while you’re lying still but no one ever answers and no one ever will
Track Name: Sing
Sing

Wake in the morning, have a cup of tea
My eyes are playing tricks on me
I put on my favourite Dylan tune
And I sing

I don’t shower much, it’s a waste of water
I brush my teeth, it helps me to feel clean
I put on my favourite Janis tune
And I sing

And I sing, sing, sing

Step outside, the sun on my back
I thank the earth for this life I have
I put on my favourite Neil Young tune
And I sing

And I sing, sing, sing

I go driving long long long roads
No one to talk to, no one to hold
I put on my favourite Lennon tune
And I sing

And I sing, sing, sing
