Letting Go 05:01
love’s an open door (here’s the tender coming) it’s sitting here with you, lonely through the night all I want to do is sit and hold you tight all I want to say is choking back the tears every single day is fooling me the years all I want to do is sitting here with you all I ever dreamed, all that you could be all we ever seemed and how it makes me feel when I touch your name, crying in the dark it’s always been the same, it’s always been the spark all I want to do is sitting here with you love’s an open door (here’s the tender coming) love’s an open door a whisper on the wind, a whisper on the sea a knowing of the end and how it’s got to be breathing in the sky is everything I know I can read your eyes and they have let me go all I want to do is sitting here with you it’s sitting here with you now I am far away what am I to do losing you today love’s an open door giving you your head breaking on the shore with feet made out of lead all I want to do is sitting here with you love’s an open door (here’s the tender coming)

Nightmare 02:59
looking down on the ground looking down for half a crown there’s something there beneath your shoe see I look a lot like you live today and close your eyes walk along on the other side the scandal dies in suicide pride in everything you do chorus you swing it high and bring it low wash your hands and I wouldn’t know spread the word we’ve got to go again I’ve got your number I’m on your list I’m the one that Christmas kissed I can’t forget and the nightmare doesn’t end we’re all down here in the same wet rain playing around or playing the game getting wet is no big deal but you’ve got a coat so we’re not the same - I feel looking up at the silver sky there’s no joy left in the old man’s eyes he hasn’t got a penny for the children’s guy there’s a hole in his shoe and he doesn’t know why chorus looking down on the ground if I keep still I won’t be found if I don’t breathe I won’t get hurt if I don’t need I might not hit the dirt I wish tomorrow wouldn’t come but I want life for everyone it’s all gone wrong and overdone I wish that I had never held a gun chorus

stand out on the street, watch the passing feet wishing I could melt into the wall who can see the sky as beautiful as I who would be so foolish as to fall walk in faded clothes, better not get close money makes the poor man want to burn but then you have to laugh, for dreams and being daft it’s only sailors wait for tides to turn chorus it’s just around the corner see, it’s coming down the road the paper bag is burning and it’s such a heavy load sitting in my chair, blood thinner than the air wishing I could feel the fire glow you only have to say, it’s just another day I missed what every childhood ought to know and now I’m getting old, grey and not so bold the lines around my eyes forget to smile and sometimes they squeeze tears for stolen time and years for I still know I’m beautiful inside chorus I step out on the shore, I have to breathe some more they’ve got their hands so tight around my neck the storms have done their worst, all the river banks have burst the ache inside my head gives me no rest waves will wash these stones, someday I’ll take you home the waking in the night will go to sleep and in your heart I’ll hide, I’ll bear nobody’s pride it’s hurting and the ocean is so deep chorus it’s just around the corner see, it’s coming down the road the paper bag is burning and it’s such a stony road it’s just around the corner and my eyes forget to smile the paper bag it burns but I’m still beautiful inside

Hardest Part 04:38
pride falls as the night falls and clouds have cleared the day can’t resist the moment of your kiss fear must fly away who would follow every star who would tell us who we are where would we be without the hardest truth in our hearts, the hardest part pride falls, my tears fall for all that I survey and what I’ve missed so much for knowing this I need you more today who would treasure all my dreams who would go on loving me who would catch my every aching breath all that’s left and how it feels love calls in my voice calls you near, don’t look away can’t get over my dearest friend and lover I haven’t the words to say who would see it when I’m sad dare to find me where I am hold me close when dark is all around touch the ground, hold my hand and I’m no longer blind the hand of truth that’s cutting isn’t kind now I can see the face that’s looking back is seeing me pride falls as the night falls skies of blue to grey gold to brass, as diamonds turn to glass fear must fly away who would follow every star what would tell us who we are where would we be without the hardest truth in our hearts, the hardest part the hardest part the hardest part

Pieces 03:13
what am I going to do without my love what am I going to do without the feeling what am I going to do without my love What am I going to do without the seeing you what am I going to do what am I going to do when darkness comes what am I going to do without the sun what am I going to do without the sheltered leaves what am I going to do what am I going to do when darkness comes what am I going to do when they take me down what am I going to do without it then what am I going to do now they’re pushing me around what am I going to do without a friend what am I going to do o heart beating o body breathing o got to keep believing what am I going to do with all this love what am I going to do now what am I going to do with all the pieces breaking down the pieces breaking down the pieces

Bring It On 03:32
it’s a new beginning, every night reborn can you be forgiving upon this foolish morn for I am full of leaving the land that called me home and I have lost the feeling, that part of me has gone a part of me has gone o bring it on I believed in loving, I knew the sun would shine if I just kept on shoving, I’d make it there in time but there’s nothing good in trying if your heart isn’t true it makes your life a pack of lies, there are no flies on you there are no flies on you o bring it on I believed in living, to travel on this road to right the wrong by being strong, give rest to weary bones but there’s nothing left in earning, it’s meant to be the game but there’s the twist, just look at this, you’re burning just the same you’re burning just the same o bring it on and if I had the answers, I’d be singing every day and if I had the promises I’d surely fly away and if I held it in my hand I’d want to stay for always but here my hands are empty, standing by an empty doorway bring it on, bring it on. bring it on, bring it on I believed in goodness of the people in my life in hearts that beat, in walking feet, in working for what’s right but people break the goodness and nothing’s meant to last they’ll take your hand ‘cos you’re the man, next day they’re walking past next day they’ll walk on past o bring it on, o bring it on, o bring it on

Love21 05:01
it’s too beautiful for this world too beautiful a girl and all the while I’m holding back the tears I know this isn’t new, ‘cos I’ve seen it all in you working through the Sundays and the years it’s too bright a light to shine but it’s always been inside too much, too big, too brave to be excused even whispering the words lets it out you just get hurt they prove you wrong, you don’t belong you just get used chorus it’s the best-kept secret that I know of love just has to grow and even through the darkest hour I just have to move towards it don’t let go, you’ve got to know love it’s too wonderful to miss so I’m blowing you this kiss you must believe that truth will set you free I can see it in your eyes, you were born with wings to fly in the open air, don’t linger there just keep on moving it’s too foolish to be wise in this atmosphere of lies it’s hard to know how yesterday was done but it’s good to be alive even though my throat is dry and it’s been too long since I was strong for you it makes my heart beat, it moves the blood it gives me reason, it does me good and in the quiet I hear the voice couldn’t fight it, I have no choice but it’s too beautiful for this world too beautiful a girl and all the while I’m holding back the tears it’s the best I have to give to help you through, to let you live I wish the world was kinder and that love was not so blind chorus it’s the best-kept secret that I know of love just has to grow and even through the darkest hour I just have to move towards it don’t let go, you’ve got to know love

Needing You 04:32
stars are falling down like rain and soaking up the ground diamond daggers at my heart the sun is setting down o have to close my eyes o these feelings o I will surely die I’m needing you – tonight I tried so hard to understand I tried to see it through but I can’t hear or touch your hand the only thing that’s true o have to close my eyes o these feelings and now I’m just too old to cry I’m needing you – tonight I’m digging down all the way this time I dig myself a grave there’s nothing left I’m calling mine I’ve only got my spade o have to close my eyes o these feelings these broken wings will never fly I’m needing you, I’m needing you I’m needing you dreams are falling down like stars and walls like building sand it doesn’t matter who you are it’s who I really am o have to close my eyes o these feelings love will not be done and die o these feelings o have to close my eyes o these feelings oh – have to close my eyes I’m needing you I’m needing you I’m needing you – tonight

chorus don’t want to talk anymore don’t want to see your face fall don’t want to talk anymore don’t want to see your eyes growing cold don’t want to feel your back turn don’t want to talk anymore so many thoughts fly through my head so many things must go unsaid and every day must last for years I cry my tears you take away the ground beneath your imitation false belief feeds every fool to set in stone I have no home chorus so many times I try to cross the grandest canyon filled with loss but every silence cries a death to catch my breath so now where every garden grows you lay me down and let me go the way I feel, you’ll never know the river flows - on chorus it’s in my heart and in your hands the picture painted, who I am the colours run from blue to gold I’m getting old and if there’s any mercy left your hand will hold for all I’ve met to give a thought and give me rest put on your coat chorus
10.
I can feel the angels come I can feel the trees bow down to the wind I can hear a quiet sound a rushing of the sky and I am found only I can feel it falling only I can tell the morning of this day I can feel the darkness lift I can feel that now the stars will shine I can hear the songbirds wake and I know this time the song is mine all the beauty in the world could never measure this everything is given up for everything a kiss I can feel the weather change I can feel the sun upon my skin I can see the mountains rise I can feel the tide that’s running in only I can know it moving only I can take the soothing all the way o when I look into your eyes I can see that they’re my eyes and doubt is for the fallen leaves with your name upon my mouth I just want to shout it out and the mocking bird must fly for me I can feel the angels come I can feel the trees bow down to the wind I can hear a quiet sound a rushing of the sky and I am found

Shipbuilders 02:39
I’ve been in the yard since morning hammering in the rib since 7 o’clock, I’m yawning now if I was a miner I’d have to dig chorus come and build ships with us, build ships build them night and day come and build ships with us, big ships and sail away it’s hard to know you’re good enough when the hammer is in your hand the nails must go in true with love it’s hard to be a man chorus I’ll see you there tomorrow it’ll be a brand new start bring your boots and hard hat but don’t protect your heart I would stay and have another one with you but my eyes just want to close and when I hit the pillow I’ll be dreaming of the roses chorus
12.
I’ll see you in your dreams in your dreams, if you dream I know that it’s real in your dreams when you dream I know when you wake what they say, how you break tell me in your dreams about the love and how it feels I don’t want to talk about it don’t want to have to say the words I’m kissing you ‘cos it’s all over and wishing’s only for the birds I’ll see you in your dreams in your dreams, if you dream be there in your dreams in your dreams, when you dream sunlight in the air in your eyes, on your hair it’s all there in your dreams about the love and how it feels I want to see you there smiling telling me that it’s alright and I won’t let them see me crying though shadows creep around at night I’ll see you in your dreams in your dreams, if you dream don’t worry in your dreams in your dreams, when you dream walking down the street flying feet, will we meet it’s all there in your dreams about the love and how it feel there’s nothing makes it any better I’m not enough to help you stay but I’ll remember love forever there’s nothing lost in dreams today I’ll see you there (dreaming of love) I’ll see you there (dreaming of love) I’ll see you dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
