Verse 1 Riding back in the afternoon, when we just finished school Took them bikes down every track, until the dust fell We were trusted to return although we were often late I'd see you out in the distance waiting at the gate. Chorus I hear you call my name again We'd race to be back home then I never thought I'd be this far from you Whenever I sing Georgia, you’re on my mind. Verse 2 I say you have all the answers If I was ever in doubt You could tell if I was in the wrong If I could do without You'd be a shoulder to cry on You'd be a guiding hand Whatever trouble I'm into you try to understand Chorus I hear you call my name again We'd race to be back home then I never thought I'd be this far from you Whenever I sing Georgia, you’re on my mind. Verse 3 On that day I sang for you the congregation cried And I cried hard with them could not keep it inside. Chorus I hear you call my name again We'd race to be back home then I never thought I'd be this far from you Whenever I sing Georgia, you’re on my mind.

Verse 1 Meet me by the shore at 20 past sun rise. We can sit together just watching the tide, Revealing all its secrets and magical reflections of you. No blemish in the sand, let’s make our mark together. write our names in a heart and swear it’s forever. Chorus Turning stones, turning stones with you x 2 Who knows what we might find. Verse 2 Stepping over driftwood that’s drifted on the ocean, For miles and miles and miles. That’s a lot of devotion, to find its way here. Middle 8 This is just the perfect day I couldn’t wish for more You and I and the ocean We feel in love by the shore

I am bound to the ocean I am bound to the sea Oh, oh set me free Verse 1 Keep me clean oh keep me bright Follow the moon in the dark of the night Keep the fishes that swim along with me Verse 2 Oh, oh diving below To a world that I want to show you This is my garden my forest and my street Verse 3 As I breath Oh my lungs Hold in the air so I become Another pair of eyes looking back at the sun Middle 8 On the beaches & coves where we run Children build castles in the sand The tide will eventually reach you son And our daughters dance along

Verse 1 Who do I turn to now? When I've turned every corner now I'm lost in this labyrinth of life Who do I turn to now? Where do I run to now? I've run to the end of this earth and found no answers Where do I run to now? Verse 2 Who do I talk to now? I've been talking in my sleep to anyone who will listen Who do I talk to now? Who will catch me now When I'm falling, and tumbling can't see where I will land Who will catch me now Chorus Who, If Not you. x 2 Verse 3 Who will hold me now Hold me tight but don't hold me back please Who will hold me now Who will listen now Although I shout it seems like a whisper Who will listen now Verse 4 Who will love me now If not, you then where can I rest this heart of mine

Verse 1 Driving home, traffic as slow as the dirt it’s on I cannot find a decent song on my radio I’m looking around There’s a young man with his head in the clouds With impractical dreams, funny how he seems, Smarter than me. Chorus Take it slow, he seems to know which way to go. Don’t follow me I’ll follow you I’ve come too far. I still don’t really know where we are Don’t follow me I’ll follow you Verse 2 “Take my hand come with me to the promised land” he said, I don’t really understand what he’s talking about. The promised land, was pulled like a rug from beneath the man and sold online in a plastic can as real estate Verse 3 An innocent child Has no idea as she delivers her smile That the hopes of a nation, weight of the world Are pinning her down.

Verse 1 I’ve had tears of sadness, been one step from madness Borderline insomniac, though I would never crack Work hard and play soft, have friends that I have not And some friends I will never know Never really been into cars, played in a lot of bars Met all kinds of people and all kinds of could be stars heard their opinions on life and minions Their imaginary superstars they all seem to know Chorus Hey, why don’t you listen to me? I’ve got so much more to give If you could only hear. What I have to say. Verse 2 Those people are talking I can’t hear my own words Though I shout at the top of my voice And I screaming inside would you stop and just listen To what you are missing in life Take off the blinkers, put down your defenses Open the gates to your heart You don’t mind if I sing, a song for myself? A song that I wrote for everyone else I said hey, why don’t you listen to me? I’ve got so much more to give If you could only hear. What I have to say. And I’m singing now, am I being heard? And I’m singing now, can you hear my words? I’m singing now…

Verse 1 From the moment that I met you I knew, I’d love you for ever. Even when you cry you make me smile. Looking at your face is just like looking in a mirror, A reflection I haven’t seen for a while. Seeing your reaction to this song, you beat your hand almost in time, And it’s lighting up the room. Making a comment that I don’t understand, I’ll put it down as constructive criticism. Chorus As Van Morrison said, have I told you lately that I love you. As you said mum, mum, mum. she loves you too. And we’re happy to have you around, listening to every sound you make, Gwendolyn Rose. Verse 2 As I hold you in my arms you pull on the paper, That I’m trying to write the lyrics on. With one firm tug it falls to the ground You give a whimper of quiet satisfaction Now that your sleeping, I finish composing This ode to my only child. It’s fun and laughter happy ever after Teas at bedtime, you won’t eat your food no more. Chorus Repeat 1st

Verse 1 I won't write you a letter I've no paper to write it on. I won't write you a letter I've no paper to write it on. I've nothing to say anyhow, now my baby's gone. Verse 2 I can't call you later I haven't a nickel or a dime. I can't call you later I haven't a nickel or a dime. I can't call you later if I could, hell, I wouldn't have the time. Chorus My Heart is broke and my baby's gone this time. My Heart is broke and my baby's gone this time. My heart is broken, she don't seem to mind. Verse 3 She asks while she's leaving can we still be friends? She asks while she's leaving can we still be friends? Sure I still love you, so long as I don't see you again.

Verse 1 There is salt in the palm of his leathery hands weathered by tides and storms The lines on his face deep creases that flow to the sea, this man was born. Now it's said in the town that his father was drowned and his father before him too. He said he'd be safe with God's speed and good grace I'm sailing home to you, sailing home to you. Chorus In my baby's arms tonight, in my baby's arms make sure the fires are alight we'll be back before the storm, back before the storm. Verse 2 They were not to know but on that fateful eve as they cast off and steamed to the night a storm so fierce it could draw out the tears from faces cold with fright A hammer wind blows at it knocks through the cabin their only protection gone in his final words he whispered a prayer "keep those at home safe and warm Verse 3 Years had passed, and the sea broke the wreck as it washed upon the shore They found a gold chain right there on the deck which the fisherman once wore and inscribed on a pendent the words from his love. Be back before the storm, be back before the storm

Verse 1 Woke up happy so avoided the news I don’t want them reporters to be giving me the blues Bad luck stories I don’t need to hear Avoiding all the people that we should fear Chorus Wake up smiling with you Wake up smiling you just sleep the whole day through And when you open up your eyes You wake up smiling too Verse 2 Roll out of bed like you just fell from a star You only realize just how lucky you are Lucky to be there with that roof on your head Nice fresh linin on your nice warm bed Chorus Wake up smiling with you Wake up smiling you just sleep the whole day through And when you open up your eyes You wake up smiling too Middle 8 Ooh, I sometimes do not know which way to go Hey, does it really matter anyway Verse 3 What’s the point in them asking me to choose When the looser wins and the winners loose Chorus Wake up smiling with you Wake up smiling you just sleep the whole day through And when you open up your eyes You wake up smiling too
