“Destiny”

I lie awake
I’ve gone to ground
I’m watching porn
In my hotel dressing gown
Now I dream of you
But I still believe
There’s only enough for one in this
Lonely hotel suite

The journey’s long
And it feels so bad
I’m thinking back to the last day we had
Old moon fades into the new
Soon I know I’ll be back with you
I’m nearly with you
I’m nearly with you

When I’m weak I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart we are each other’s destiny

On a clear day
I’ll fly home to you
I ‘m bending time getting back to you
Old moon fades into the new
Soon I know I’ll be back with you
I’m nearly with you
I’m nearly with you

When I’m weak I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart we are each other’s destiny

When I’m weak I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart we are each other’s destiny

I’ll fly, I’ll fly home
I’ll fly home and I’ll fly home

“Throw It All Away”

Try talking to you
While you do, while you do
I swap places with you
Just to see things through
Just sing me the tune
And you’ll see
I’ll keep it here for you
I’ll wait for your cue

You wrote down all the words
Black and white
On a wall
Just keepin’ it so
Yeah you know how it goes
No plans for a change, nothing strange
No not today no way
Now sing me the tune

Cash it in and throw it all away
Never needed any of it anyway

So you twist and you turn
Uncomfortable fool, you’ll never learn
But you can take a stand
Forget all about the plans California rose

Side one track two
On a record of you
I’ve even stuck on a groove
That I don’t wanna lose
Just play it again, as a friend
It’s your favorite worn-in shoes
Now sing me the tune

Cash it in and throw it all away, yeah
Never needed any of it anyway

So you crash, and you burn
Sometimes the road will twist and turn
Some of this, less of that
Forget all about the map California road

Cash it in and throw it all away
Never needed any of it anyway

Cash it in and throw it all away, yeah
Never needed any of it anyway

Cash it in and throw it all away
Never needed any of it anyway

Cash it in and throw it all away
Never needed any of it anyway

“Over Our Heads”

Close your eyes
Can’t you see it’s burning slow
Fading down the sparks of fire earth bound
Space in two
Warm beyond the love below
Close your eyes
It’s time for us to go

Over our heads
Light keeps passing through
Over our heads
Light from me to you

Falling down
Way beneath the healing skies
Rise and shine
The crying times left behind

Over our heads
All we see is true
Over our heads
Can’t you see it too

Over our heads
Light keeps passing through
Over our heads
Light from me to you

“This World”

Another child is born
Another race is won
Another dream is shattered
Another day has begun

This world is still afloat
No not in Noah’s boat
We’ve only lost the vision
Of the stars we’re meant to be

Another broken heart
Another lesson learnt
Another harvest eaten
Another night is gone
A new day’s begun
Even your dreams they can be real

This world is still afloat
No not in Noah’s boat
We’ve only lost the vision
Of the stars we’re meant to be

This world is still afloat
No not in Noah’s boat
We’ve only lost the vision
Of the stars we’re meant to be

This world is full of love
We still have hope
This world is full of love
We still have hope
This world is full of love
We still have hope
This world is full of love
We still have hope
This world is full of love
We still have hope
This world is full of love
We still have hope

“In Time”

 All the words are calling

Got time on my own
There’s no destination
Wondering whether I’ll feel it again

Keep my hands off the wheel
‘Cause there’s nowhere else to go

Take some time
Just hang around awhile
Like to sit this silent moment out
I don’t want to lose or let you down
Time’s just gonna change itself around

The autumn leaves are falling
Falling down on me
And there’s nothing I can do
And there’s nothing I can say
That’s gonna change the way I feel

Keep my hands off the wheel
‘Cause there’s nowhere else to go

Take some time
Just hang around awhile
Like to sit this silent moment out
I don’t want to lose or let you down
Time’s just gonna change itself around

Take this time
Just hang around awhile
Like to sit this silent moment out
I don’t want to lose or let you down
Time’s just gonna change itself
Change itself around

I feel it’s true
All alone without you
I feel it’s true
‘Cause you’re running with the wind
And you’re running with your life
Won’t you come inside

Keep my hands off the wheel
‘Cause there’s nowhere else to go

Take some time
Just hang around awhile
Like to sit this silent moment out
I don’t want to lose or let you down
Time’s just gonna change itself around
