Track Name: They Care For You
They Care For You

My love for you will keep on going and going.
You can track it, map it, follow where it goes – it’s yours to own.

My love for you will keep on growing and growing.
You could chalk it on the wall, but you don’t need to,
‘cos i'll tell you everytime I see you.

When you're out on your own take care,
don’t go wandering anywhere.
Come back home there will always be someone who loves you there.
They Care For You.

You don’t have to explain yourself to me.
I'll hold you if you need me to ‘til you sleep,
then i’ll see you in the dream.

We'll keep on running until we reach the sea.
Never looking down, we'll feel the water at our feet; and then our knees, we'll sink beneath.

So rise.
Track Name: My Heart Doesn't Age (It Just Gets Older)
My Heart Doesn’t Age (it just gets older)

My heart doesn’t age, it just gets older.
As if it’s frozen in time, but it doesn’t feel colder.

My body shows the signs, but inside I’m still about 5.

Like an old drum machine, it beats on and on.
My heart feels so young,
runs on and on.

If you listen to an old man,
and really focus on what he says;
there are feelings there, that don’t decay with age.

The heart grows stronger, and fights for success.
Your heart is the conqueror; it’ll win in the end.

And this old drum machine, beats on and on.
My heart feels so young,
It runs on and on.

There are things that we learn,
and things that we say.
But the heart doesn’t change much,
from day to day.
Just beats on relentlessly,
leading the way.
Track Name: Pretty Soon
Pretty Soon

There’s not enough time to see the sunshine,
not enough time to learn.
I don’t have time to go out there,
others have time to burn.
There’s not enough time to help anyone,
not enough time to care.
Not enough time to write a song.
I can’t tell you I’ll always be there.

Lets take a break, a holiday.
Lets get away from it all.
Tell me the stuff you’ve been meaning to say,
But never had time to before.
Forget the baggage the dreams and ambitions,
just take the things we need.
Nothing we plan ever comes to fruition,
So throw all the plans in the sea.

The taste of something sweet,
or the bright side of the street.
Makes you realize,
Pretty soon we’re all gonna die.

There’s not enough time to worry,
not enough time to fight.
There’s not enough time, so hurry,
we’re having a party tonight.
There’s not enough time to get angry and stressed,
not enough time to be down.
Not enough time, this isn’t a test.
There’s time for fooling around.
Track Name: Do You Still Wanna Be Mine?
Do You Still Wanna Be Mine?

It may take a little time,
to re-adjust my eyes to your light.
I will try to keep this to myself,
it’s the least I can do, for the good of your health.

No I’m not in a mood, I wanna talk to you.
You just got back from your flight,
you oughtta turn out the light.
I’ve got so much to say,
and I’ve been waiting all day.
But now the words get stuck, they can’t escape.

Lights turn out and the fear it starts.
Beyond doubt, I know who you are.
But I can’t see you, I’m fumbling in the dark.
For a sign that you still wanna be mine.

Please trust things are not as you fear,
I was alone in here, until this stuff appeared.
So lets get back to the point at which I picked you up.
I said “welcome home”, you said you’d missed my touch.
Track Name: The Fire Of Lust
The Fire Of Lust

I can’t stay and love does not last.
I’m a man like all those others in the past.
That made the mistake of believing they could,
follow their desire into the fire of lust.

But it burns like a bastard my friend,
so warm and tempting...
it measures me, the fire of lust.

No warning signal, no light.
Just a punch in the face, you couldn’t really call it a fight.
Leaves you stunned, defenseless, and exposed.
No chance to hit back, you dropped like a stone.

You cry for help, but you’re out there on your own.
In the wilderness looking for a home.
A drunken hand stabbing in the dark,
no going back when you know not where to start.

And it burns like a bastard my friend…
So warm and tempting,
then suddenly, it’s the end.

So give it some thought, is she really so hot,
that you'd give everything for a piece of what she’s got?
Well yeah, maybe so, lust stirs the low...
Lust turns you around when you’ve nowhere else to go.
Lust sends you high and adds weight to your desire.
Lust is a soldier no surrender, he will fight.
Lust is a killer, begging you to kill.
Lust breeds an emptiness that nothing else can fill.

And it burns like a bastard my friend…
it’s so warm and tempting,
then suddenly it’s the end.
Track Name: (My Stupid Face)
My Stupid Face

My stupid face reveals everything that I feel.
My big mouth lets you know when I have my doubts.

But my ears they are innocent baby.
They only ever hear the sound of your tears.
Yeah my ears are my one redeeming feature.
Constantly tuned to the sound of your fears.
Track Name: Know Me
Know Me

So you wanna come and know me now,
So you wanna come and win somehow.
Well you’ve gotta say, what I meant to say.

So you think you’ll find your own way back,
just remember not to follow tracks.
You don’t wanna go, where you know you’ve been.
You’ve seen, you’ve seen and you seem to know me.

You don’t come to see me, you won’t let me go.
You’re gonna come around and win somehow,
I guess I’ll just let you know me.

So you think you’ll find your own way home,
you think your road is paved with gold.
What you didn’t know is that’s your only hope.

So you wanna come and know me now,
I know I shouldn’t but there’s no way out.
I’ll just rest my guard; let you take your charge.
Somehow you know me.
Track Name: When We Were Sleeping
When We Were Sleeping

I want light, I want love, I want the fear of falling over taken from my hands.
I want days, I want hours, I want a night that’s never over,
do you understand?

Moments are there to take you away.
Times we can share, I want to stay.

When we were sleeping it all became clear.

Here I am this is me as still as a dead man beside you.

Then your skin reached my skin and for a second it felt like you crawled in.

These moments we share they do not compare.

For what I’m feeling now I could not prepare.

When we were sleeping it all became clear.

When we were sleeping you took away my fear.

I searched for years telling everyone I meet all about you.
I had so many important things to do, then I met you.
Now all I have is you, now all I want is you.
Track Name: Three Bodies
3 Bodies

3 bodies lined up against the sun.
3 minds, oh what family fun.

Posing for a photograph, she straightens up her back.
Her mind is on the duplication,
that will surely follow the shutters crack.
Once authentic now a mere sample from the past.

3 bodies in a line under the sun.
3 minds, 3 generations.

She throws a strong pose for the camera,
but watch how quickly reaches for the back,
and shows the display to her mother,
oh she is beautiful, she is sure of that.
She worked hard to get in shape for the summer,
and hopes these photographs enough to attract,
the kind of man truly deserving of her,
someone tall, with a pocketful of cash.

3 bodies lined up against the sun.
3 minds battle it out 1 by 1.

Behind the veneer lie many tears,
waiting for their time to expose,
the truth about this retro looking photo,
just an app she likes to play with on her phone.
There is no real history here or vintage,
just an artificial smile and models pose.
She saw it in a magazine she loves to read,
and compare other bodies to her own.
She’s worked hard to get in shape for the summer,
and she looks beautiful she is sure of that.
Yes she could use a little more up front,
but she’s still saving up for that.
And who knows where these photographs will take her,
she hopes her youth and beauty will attract,
oh the right kind of lover
her mother told her she’s a real royal catch.
Yeah but she was safer when she was younger not so vulnerable to attack..a little scared ‘cos she can’t go back.
Track Name: Hold On To What We Have
Hold On To What We Have

I don’t want to wear you down over the years.
I don’t want to manipulate you, or persuade you to stay.
Walk with me through crisp white snow hold my hand.
Jump right in don’t hesitate don’t look back at our past.

It’s gone, in a flash.
Hold on to what we have.

I don’t want this to fade from view over the years.
Hold it high let the light shine through,
like we’ve only just begun.
I refuse to compromise here from this height.
Dig, dig deep our roots will help us survive the night.

It’s gone, in a flash.
Hold on to what we have.
Track Name: All That Will Survive Of Us Is Love
All That Will Survive Of Us Is Love

You held my hand, as we walked around the park.
You seem to really understand the complicated part.

Of what spins around my head, and tears my heart apart.
I won’t forget what you said, I will not forget what you said….you said:

All that will survive of us is love.
Track Name: My Heart Doesn't Age (It Just Gets Older) (Remix)
My Heart Doesn’t Age (it just gets older)

My heart doesn’t age, it just gets older.
As if it’s frozen in time, but it doesn’t feel colder.

My body shows the signs, but inside I’m still about 5.

Like an old drum machine, it beats on and on.
My heart feels so young,
runs on and on.

If you listen to an old man,
and really focus on what he says;
there are feelings there, that don’t decay with age.

The heart grows stronger, and fights for success.
Your heart is the conqueror; it’ll win in the end.

And this old drum machine, beats on and on.
My heart feels so young,
It runs on and on.

There are things that we learn,
and things that we say.
But the heart doesn’t change much,
from day to day.
Just beats on relentlessly,
leading the way.
