Track Name: Crybaby
I've been waiting
'cuz you've been known to take your time
I've been sitting by the phone, drinking all alone
Tell myself the same old lines

I've been better
'cuz there's better things than being a fool
But I didn't realize
It was right before my eyes
But you never think it happens to you

I always told you that you could ask me anything
But I didn't have an answer to your question
I should have shut my mouth, closed my eyes
Told myself a pack of lies
So cry, Crybaby, cry

I was good to you
And I thought that you were good to me
But it didn't take long, good intentions gone
Left alone in misery

You always told me that I could tell you anything
What's the point when nobody is listening?
I should have shut my mouth, closed my eyes
Told myself a pack of lies
So cry, Crybaby, cry

I always told you that you could ask me anything
Now I finally have an answer to your question
I should have shut my mouth, closed my eyes
Told myself a pack of lies
So cry, Crybaby, cry
Track Name: Younger days
It’s been years since I came back to this place
And touched the tree where once you carved out both our names
With gardens overgrown
This place was once our home

Two blocks down where the “Tasty Freeze” used to be
Is an empty lot that served up such sweet memories
Summer Friday nights
Were the best days of my life

The wildflowers have grown
Pushed through the rocks and stones
Where we once walked along
In our younger days

In the schoolyard we first kissed and yearned for more
My heart beat faster than It ever did before
Whispered in my ear
The words I longed to hear

The wildflowers have grown
Pushed through the rocks and stones
Where we once walked along
In our younger days

By this rusty old swing
And this broken down slide
You kissed my cheek when I laughed
And held my hand when I cried

The wildflowers have grown
Pushed through the rocks and stones
Where we once walked along
In our younger days
Track Name: Sleepwalking
I don’t know what I’m doing here at 3 a.m.
But if I press myself for answers
I’d surely cry myself to sleep
And pretend that I’m better
Better than the wasted moments
Crying for you endlessly

But I know myself and I know tonight
Won’t let me go that easily
I’m.....

Sleepwalking, Sleeptalking
Every night it’s the same story
Sleepwalking, Sleeptalking
Chasing the dream of you and me

I still can’t fall asleep on your side of the bed
‘Cuz your scent’s still on your pillow
So I lie as close as I can dare
Wearing your old sweater
That you wore the night you held my hand
And swore that you would never leave

But you let it go and said goodbye
All too easily
I’m......

Sleepwalking (Where did you go?)
Sleeptalking (What did you say?)
Every night it’s the same story
Sleepwalking (Does it seem real?)
Sleeptalking (The way that you feel)
Chasing the dream of you and me
Track Name: Separate ways
Ain’t no way to make this easy
No matter how we break it down
What we both got what we needed baby
Let’s finish what we started now

Ain’t no use in sifting embers
Ain’t no point in spilling tears
We could not undo the damage
Not if we lived a hundred years

Cuz you and I are alike
So let’s kiss goodnight...
And just go our separate ways
Now only scars remain
And its too late to lay the blame
So let’s go our separate ways

We thought this was the land of milk and honey
There are no more rainbows here
The only way to close the darkness
Is to open up the door from here

'Cuz you and I are alike
So let’s kiss goodnight...
And just go our separate ways
We have lost our voice
So that leaves us no choice
But to go our separate ways
Track Name: I'll see your face
On the 25th day of every month at 12:05 in the morning
Peter turns out the light and says goodnight
Clutching the old wooden frame, “see what you’ve done my darling”
“You were too good to lose, but what can I do?”

Peter lives in Leicster, Wales but he wants to go back to Cyprus
Where he and his love last went 12 years ago
Peter volunteers down at the local hospice
Where they helped his love through her final days, till she had to go….
He let her go….
And he said:

Go, you’re safe, spread your wings and fly away
Yeah fly, Up high and climb to where there is no pain
Go, be free, I know that you’ll look after me
And everywhere there’s beauty in the world,
I’ll see your face

Sundays Peter walks to town and listens to the Vicar
And lights a single candle as he leaves
He spends his afternoon with the sundrops in the garden
Tends to them like precious memories, that never leave
Never leave….
And he said

Go, you’re safe, spread your wings and fly away
Yeah fly, Up high and climb to where there is no pain
Go, be free, I know that you’ll look after me
And everywhere there’s beauty in the world,
I’ll see your face

The flowers and the trees
Bluebells on the breeze
The clouds up in the air
Show me you’re still there……

Go, you’re safe, spread your wings and fly away
Yeah fly, Up high and climb to where there is no pain
Go, be free, I know that you’ll look after me
And everywhere there’s beauty in the world, I’ll see your face
Track Name: It's a brand new day (Hey Hey)
Follow the stars
Follow your heart
Follow your dream
Right from the start
No regrets
No compromise
Time for you to spread your wings and fly
Hey, Hey, Hey

Don’t give in
Don’t ever change
This is your chance
Get out of the cage
Sing out loud
Dance in the street
Yesterday is now just history
Hey, Hey, Hey
It’s a brand new day
Hey, Hey, Hey

Don’t hold back
Don’t be afraid
Positivity will never fade
Bounce back up
When you’re knocked down
You know love can turn the world around
Hey, Hey, Hey
It’s a brand new day
Hey, Hey, Hey

You can’t stop growing older
So start your life right now

Hey, Hey, Hey
It’s a brand new day
Hey, Hey, Hey
Track Name: Not that girl
She wants to hold him tight
She wants him to stay the night
They never had a chance from that 1st night that they danced

She knows they’re miles apart
She knows he’ll break her heart
He’ll never realize the love that shines in her eyes

Well am I tall enough
Or thin enough
Well it’s never enough to be that girl

She wants a second chance
For him to want romance
She knows how this will end but she needs a lover not a friend

Well am I rich enough
Or pretty enough
Well it’s never enough to be that girl

Am I cool enough
Or popular enough
Yeah it’s so damn tough to be that girl
Track Name: The yearning
You take your chances and you play the game
And you put your hand in the fire
From just one spark evolves a flame
And it won’t take long to burn higher, higher

You keep your head cool while your blood runs hot
And try to control your desires
Though you fight to decide if you stop it or not
It’s like trying to use gas to douse fire, fire

The brighter it burns
The more you yearn
And the yearning only gets stronger
Like a moth to a flame
It drives you insane
And there’s no-one but yourself to blame

You could turn and run or turn a page
But the closeness leaves you defenseless
So you close your eyes and you bare your soul
As you lie on your back, breathless, breathless

The brighter it burns
The more you yearn
And the yearning only gets stronger
Like a moth to a flame
It drives you insane
And there’s no-one but yourself to blame
Track Name: Sleepyhead
Wake up sleepy head
Haven’t you heard?
Wake up sleepy head
Time to meet the world
It’s waiting here for you, White and blue

The sun is shining bright
Shining just for you
The sun is shining bright
On a day brand new
I can see it in your eyes, wide and blue

And nobody loves you like I do
And nobody loves you like I do

Wake up sleepy head
Rise and shine
Wake up sleepy head
Sweet child of mine
When you smile just for me
It makes the sun shine

And nobody loves you like I do
And nobody loves you like I do
Track Name: Everything Changes
The time has come for you to fly
Your teenage years are left behind
And everything changes, everything changes with time

I watched you grow and held your hand
You cried and hoped I’d understand
That everything changes, everything changes

This time
I know
You’re old enough to make your own way
Go, spread your wings and fly!

This house feels cold and all alone
The wide wild world is now your home
Where everything changes, everything changes, everything changes
With time.
