Track Name: Hanging On
You push me around,try to put me down
But I'm still holding on
Invading my space,laughing in my face
But I'm still holding on
You cut me to the core,but I'm coming back for more
I'm still holding on

I dunno know why you do what you do
'Cos nothing's gonna work for you

I'm hangin' on,hangin' on
Oh,oh I'm hangin' on

You kick me when I'm down,but I'm still around
And still holding on
There's nothing you can do,'bout what I feel for you
I'm still holding on
I'll always be around,I'm gonna wear you down
By still holding on

I dunno know why you do what you do
'Cos nothing's gonna work for you

I hear what you say,but I won't walk away
I'm still holding on
I'm smiling through the pain and bouncing back again
I'm still holding on
I'm here to call your bluff,I just can't get enough
I'm still holding on

I dunno know why you do what you do
'Cos nothing's gonna work for you

I'm hangin' on,hangin' on
Oh,oh I'm hangin' on.

Track Name: Rock and a Hard Place
When living is easy and life is going well
Everyone's contented,as far as we can tell
But when the tide is high and the water's running fast
That's when true colours show,they'll nail them to the mast

It's hard to tell,hard to read the signs
What goes on in each and every individual mind
We play our cards so closely,rarely show our hand
Then we wonder why on earth,no one understands

I just can't help dream about the way it could have been
I just can't help think that things are never ever what they seem
And fortune watches from afar,but never intervenes
A rock and a hard place,we've nothing in between

A broken promise makes it hard to trust
We only give so much away and only when we must
Close the hurt out and build a wall
Then we shut out everything,leaving nothing at all

I just can't help dream about the way it could have been
I just can't help think that things are never ever what they seem
And fortune watches from afar,but never intervenes
A rock and a hard place,we've nothing in between.

Track Name: Seasons
Seasons come and seasons go
The sun will shine and the wind will blow
Rain will fall and rivers flow
Mountains go from high to low

We are here this is our time
The pulse of life rhythm and rhyme
The tighter the grasp,the least we hold
The more we gather,the less we own

We could live like kings
We are more than things
We own
Rich beyond our dreams

A lifetime spent chasing your tail
Trying to buy what's not for sale
A gold watch and a crystal jar
Don't add up to who you are

Each step on the ladder takes you high
While life below passes you by
Looking down,the world seems small
Climbing up leaves further to fall

We could live like kings
We are more than things
We own
Rich beyond our dreams

Fingers to the bone every working day
No time for joy,no time to play
Having it all goes way past greed
We're rich because of what we don't need

We could live like kings
We are more than things
We own
Rich beyond our dreams
Track Name: Just One Last Time
I have no more words left to say
He's silent now,his eyes look far away
I wish I could go back to innocent times
And leave this heartache behind

When it comes to letting go girl,you are no beginner
I've never been the one who gets to choose
And when it's time to say goodbye,you are the winner
I guess I'm the one to lose

Just for tonight could he hold me
Let me believe I'm still the one
Just for tonight could he touch me
And leave behind what's been done
Just for tonight could he love me
Just one more time

I feel so alone,no one to hold
The fire that burned in him is frozen cold
I wish that I could melt the ice away
And maybe he'd still look at me that way

All this talk of lovin',yet you push me away
What you do speaks louder than what you say
The distance here between us is real and it's a shame
You love to play the martyr,that's your game

Just for tonight could you hold me
Let me believe I'm still the one
Just for tonight could you touch me
And leave behind what's been done
Just for tonight could you love me
Just one last time

Is this the point of no turning?
Is there still time?
Track Name: Home
People rushing,gotta be somewhere
They have no time to waste
Food on the go,don't eat slow
They got no time to taste
No matter where you've been or gone
It's great to come home

Crowded cities,frantic lifestyle
Just on the edge of fear
Carried on a wave remorseless
You could lose a lifetime here
When the train pulls in the station
And you know you are done
It's great to come home

When you find a place at the end of the day
No one's gonna take that away

Good day or bad day
Sad day or fun
Slow day or fast day
Always on the run
But when the door closes behind you
And no one's on the phone
You know you are home

When all the world just slips away
And you're where you belong
Then you know you are home

When all the world just slips away
And you're where you belong
Then you know you are home
Track Name: TC 9077
My name is Thomas Caldwell,I work on the land
Sowing,feeding,growing,reaping,toiling with my hand
I dream of adventure,far from the hills I know so well
Where a young man can live a life and have stories to tell
I saw his face on a wall and it seemed to ring true
When he pointed his finger,your country needs you

Walking down this old road,my bag in my hand
A song in my heart,I'm going to see another land
On the ship that awaits me I'll find my new friends
I can feel my life beginning now,God knows where it will end

All the green fields,the hills that surround them
Will I ever see them again?
The peace of tonight,the morning I'll be leaving
My face to the soft summer rain

Cruel times came along and stole away my dreams
War and adventure are not what they may seem
We are pins on the map,we are pawns in the game
So many good men will die today and tomorrow,the same

All the green fields,the hills that surround them
Will I ever see them again?
The fear of the night,the crying of the dying
Awash in the mud and the rain

Lying here in this hole,my eyes to the Flanders sky
My brothers hold my head,it's my time to die
Twenty two years of age as I go to my rest
I hope I made a difference,but only time will tell I guess

All the green fields,the hills that surround them
I can see them clearly again
The wind gently blows,soon I'll be leaving
But my soul will always remain

My name is Thomas Caldwell,I work on the land
Sowing,feeding,growing,reaping,toiling with my hand.
Track Name: Forever
I promise I will always be there
Hand in hand we'll walk down this road
At first sight I'll know who you are
Sharing this life one day at a time
I'll protect you from what this world may bring
And I will try not to break your heart

Forever
Together
Whoever you are
Forever
Whatever
No,no,never break your heart

Promise me you'll always be there
Holding my hand when I stumble and fall
A first sight will you know who I am?
Will you share this journey with me?
Forgive me when I get it wrong?
And please try not to break my heart

Forever
Together
Whoever you are
Forever
Whatever
No,no,never break your heart
Track Name: Shadow
Here in twilight,lost and cold
Waking half light,unconsoled
I see you shine,feels bittersweet
Confused and hurting,incomplete

I watch your life,I see the show
From your shadow,in your shadow
A blazing star a sun nouveau
I'm your shadow,in your shadow

I'm half alive,an embryo
Stilled,arrested,in limbo
My inspiration,my living muse
My counterbalance,all to lose

I watch your life,I see the show
From your shadow,in your shadow
A blazing star a sun nouveau
I'm your shadow,in your shadow

From the sidelines,from the wings
I watched you burn,I heard you sing
You are not what you portray
You caught my eye,then turned away

I watch your life,I see the show
From your shadow,in your shadow
A blazing star a sun nouveau
I'm your shadow,in your shadow

You are the one and they think you're divine
But you got where you are by taking what's mine

Friends for life.a common soul
We stood together,we shared a goal
Why you left you didn't say
You took my songs,you walked away

I watch your life,I see the show
From your shadow,in your shadow
A blazing star a sun nouveau
I'm your shadow,in your shadow
Track Name: Mouth Waltz
My mouth is hung in the middle and runs at both ends
I'm forever flapping my gums
I blurt every word my tired old mind sends
Fire them out,one after one

So pin back your ears while I'm yammering' on
Setting the whole world to right
I'm holding the floor and I've plenty more
To say,if you'll listen tonight

Yet the only words that matter at all are the words I didn't say

I should learn when to shut up my mouth
There are things I don't need to say
In anger and spite and what I think's right
Speaking out is not always the way

Chances are missed,what's said is done
White noise,so it would appear
Opportunity called,but now it's all gone
I was too busy talking to hear

I wish I could take back the things I've said
I wish I could wipe the slate clean
But time has moved on,opportunity's dead
If only and what may have been

In the peace of the night when the blood cools down
I reflect on the things I say
I'm a loose lipped fool,I'm a jabbering clown
And I think I've talked you away

Yet the only words that matter at all are the words I didn't say
Track Name: Honours and Flowers (Catherine Kenny)
The wind blows,the doors close
Barred from the life within
Exclusion bites hard as the cold
Poor choice and no voice
The pills dull the hopelessness
Yet I know I'm losing my hold

Honours and flowers
Soft toys and tributes
You love me more now I'm gone
A shrine to the fallen
A moment of sadness
Before the world moves along

Shivering,invisible
A shadow in the darkness
Only seen when I'm in the way
Think of me when passing by
Love the unlovable
Society's wounded and strays

Honours and flowers
Soft toys and tributes
You love me more now I'm gone
A shrine to the fallen
A moment of sadness
Before the world moves along
