Track Name: Shine
I know a place where we can go
I'll see you there later
You've got a face everyone knows cause they've
seen it in the papers

You don't have to run and hide, No
You don't have to go
You don't have to be alone,
you're not so unknown


When it started I was holding you,
One small kiss, [D]not on the lips
When we started everything was new
that’s all it took, to lose my grip

When you see me in a public place,
well you can say "hi there"
And when they see that we're holding hands well,
we won't deny it

Sometimes love is holding you,
If you let go, [D]just this one time
Suddenly love will pour over you
Open up and [D]everything shines

Everything shines
Everything shines
Everything shines and shines and shines and shines
shines and shines and shines
Everything
Track Name: Believe
Dreams of something better.
Lost without a clue?
Don't give up, no never
Believe. Its up to you

Sometimes I close my eyes to see
Just how this world was meant to be
but I can't find it anywhere
and I go on breathing the air

Bring your friends together
Help them make it through
Write the world a letter
It will call back to you

Sometimes the thoughts escape my lips
Of motorcars and sailing ships
To seek adventure everywhere
Just turn the handle if you dare

Get yourself together
Fighting out of blue
Don't give up, no never
Believe its up to you.
Track Name: Big Pockets
She has great big pockets where she carries all of us
No matter what we look like if we're big or if we're small
In her great big pockets she carries us along
everyone's included, and knows that they belong

La la la la La la la La la la la La la
La la la la La la la La la la la La la

Before she sewed them in we would wander everywhere,
dancing on the counters, round the porch and under chairs
Totally unsupervised, let loose inside the house,
expecting to be trampled or get bitten by a mouse

La la la la La la la La la la la La la
La la la la La la la La la la la La la

She strolls in fields of dewy grass At the breaking of the day,
Turns her pockets inside out and urges us to play
She smiles to see us hide and seek, counting one to ten,
And when the darkness comes around invites us all back in

She shines like the sun
She looks after everyone
When trouble comes she is aware
and gently calls us back inside

Inside her big pockets are every rare delight,
Rainbows, and swimming holes, puppy dogs and kites,
Everyone is lost in play, and leaving quite a mess,
She yawns and shakes her head, expecting nothing
less

La la la la La la la La la la la La la
Track Name: Strong
I was just a small boy when she left home
Riding in the back seat was all that I'd know
The day she left us dad sat me down
Said there ain't much to it, "boy just be strong"

Met her in a small bar outside Tuscon
Our love was so strong, The best that I'd known
But late nights in a red dress, note by the phone
Her parting caress, "lover be strong"

Why don't you come back?, Why don't you call?
If you don't come back, Where will you go?
And if you came back, where would you call home?
What is it we lack? How could we know?

My daughter smiled sweet and looked up to me
we had together all that we'd need
But her heart was aching, only to be free
and the spirit drew her, far away from me

Why don't you come back?, Why don't you call?
If you don't come back, Where will you go?
And if you came back, where would you call home?
What is it we lack? How could we know?

My father called me, said "boy come home"
My body's aching, it won't be too long
I listened, He sang, his final song
Once more to teach me, how to be strong

Why don't you come back?, Why don't you call?
If you don't come back, Where will you go?
Worried my whole life, that I did wrong
When all I needed, was to be strong,

was to be strong,
oh to be strong,
just to be strong
Track Name: Somethin
I know something you don't know
Drop what you're doing, get ready to go
After midnight, you going somewhere?
Mess with your fate - I wouldn't dare

Wouldn't dare? You can't talk to me like that!
I ain't never seen you before and already I can't stand you
This is my place - I get to call the shots here,
And I say it's time for you to hit the road.

I know something you don't know
If you're on the list, you ain't going home
This won't take long now, don't be afraid
Just do as you're told, is all I can say

Do as you're told? Don't tell me what to do!
You know, maybe I wasn't quite clear, but I don't like you
and you should think seriously about getting gone.
Or I suspect you're gonna regret ever setting foot in this town

I know something, I can't tell
Soon you’ll be going to heaven or hell
Listen up, you ain't got much time
and that this ain’t no joke - soon you'll be mine

Ha, Ha, Ha, Your time sir, your time is up!

Wow, I did not see that coming.
Sorry, I didn't recognize you at first,
and, I guess, I shouldn't have insulted you, right?
OK, my bad. I'll be good from now on though, I promise.
Hey, why don't you let me go and move on to the next guy on that list?
What do you think?

Sorry boy, That's not for me to say.
Go ahead, pack your bags now.
You’re coming with me!
Track Name: Comin Down
I saw the world take a mighty fall
Couldn’t find nothin left at all
Pulled myself up from underground
Overwhelmed by what I found

When it crashed it made a mighty sound
Broke apart when it hit the ground
Unknown. I surveyed the land
Walking forward with an open hand

goin up, goin up, comin down
goin up, goin up, comin down


I thought I heard a young world's cry
A muffled sound, an ocean’s breath
No stranger, then, it seemed to be
Coming from inside of me

I saw a man struggle in the snow
Leaving traces miles below
rising up when others sleep
so blind that he could finally see

goin up, goin up, comin down

goin up, goin up,
comin down down, comin down down, comin down

goin up, goin up,
comin down down down down down

goin up, goin up,
comin down
Track Name: Right Now
You know I love you since a way back when
But you never have time to spend with me
If you're home
Why not open the door?

I'd carry your bags, or give you a ride
Just to have you by my side - I would
If I could
Baby that's what I need

Give me your love, Give me your love Right Now

You know I love you and I like your style
Let's get together for a little while - I know,
Ooooh yeah
I could make you smile

Come on baby look into my eyes
Can't you see I don't tell no lies - to you
Its true
I got nothing to hide ...

Give me your love,
Give me your love Right now

You got married and you moved away
Maybe there's nothing left to say - who knows
It's fate,
I'll wait and see

He moved out and left you high and dry
Did it matter that you really tried? - Maybe
You shoulda listened to me ...

Give me your love, Give me your love
Give me your love, Give me your love
Give me your love, Give me your love, Right now,
RIGHT NOW!
Track Name: Gone to Vegas
Drivin’, you know where to go
Got the Fever, and you’re itchin’ to play
Counting. Not a bad little stash
Dreamin’ of sweet bundles of cash

When you’re up your beggin’ to stay
When your down you can’t wait to get away
Had enough?, your number’s up today
What’s the doubt, put it all in play

Yeah - Welcome to Vegas

The night is young, and time’s on your side
It’s bizarre, yeah, "I gotta give that a try"
City limits? just make believe
You’re in the spotlight, doin’ the deed

Roll them dice,
Don't think twice
Ohhh, You got it now

The Sun comes up, in the city of sin
But I can’t remember - "Where have I been"?
What stays here, no one can say.
What the hell. I had it my way.

Yeah - I been to Vegas baby,
I did that town real good,
Did some things I shouldn’t have,
just because I could.

I can't stay right now but,
I’ll be back real soon
So I can waste more money,
and wreck some hotel rooms

If my friends come looking,
tell them I'm in Vegas town,
But don’t ask me what my name is,
I can’t remember now

Oh yeah I been to Vegas,
Oh Yeah I been there now
Oh Yeah
Track Name: Mosey
Mosey around
Give yourself some extra space to walk around
And then, when you're done
Just return back to where you started from

Mosey around
Down the street, all the way into town
Catch a wink, smile a smile, take a
long slow breath
And look around you,
at all you've found

Mosey around
After you awake
Take life for what its worth
After all its what you make of it

It seems the worldʼs gone crazy lately
Bigger and faster is the way
Some say jump in but they canʼt make me
Follow this creed and youʼll be saved

Mosey around
Give yourself some extra space to walk around
And then, when you're done
Just return back to where you started from
