Track Name: Tyro
Tyro
Poor wounded woman how could she resist?
Consumed by a hunger that clung to her lips
Pulled by a line that was drawn in the sand
She gave into something she could not have planned
Tyro, Tyro, Tyro
The sequence was already known, the demon was dead that lived inside her head

Persistent the distance the danger the thrill
A flicker ignited a battle of will
She made for the shoreline and breathed in resigned As she parted her mouth so the poison entwined
Tyro, Tyro, Tyro
The sequence was already known, the demon was dead that lived inside her head

Who was the mountain, who was the wave?
Twisted and reckless, did not wish to be saved Fighting for solace consumed by the force,
Ran deep wide and open let the river take course.
The heat kept on rising, the cool water soothed, Resistance was futile there was nothing she could do
And then from the summit, release from within, Unveiled the stranger shook watery skin
Tyro, Tyro, Tyro
The sequence was already known, the demon was dead that lived inside her head
Track Name: Castaway
Castaway

Sail away with me; pack up your things and leave
Some day we may return
Some day we may return

Lift up your tail if you’re feeling small
Kick up your heels if you’re feeling small

With money in our pocket and sweetness in equal parts
You can be the wise one and I can play your cheap guitar
Some say they won't get far
Take one chance his might be ours

Lift up your tail if you’re feeling small
Kick up your heels if you’re feeling small

By the light of the moon and the stars I see questions on your face
Cast them off it won’t be very hard sometimes you just out grow one place
Let go we will unfurl
Set your sail we'll light up this world
We'll light up this world
We'll light up this world
Lift up, lift up, lift up
This world.
Track Name: Beating Heart
Beating Heart
Oh my luck’s come undone
Oh my luck’s come undone
High a sweet burning flame
Right at the end of the game
There was something in the air that night
Something as cold as steel, there were eyes on the table, looking up at me.
There was something in the air that night, something incomplete, there was room on the top but nothing underneath
You were such a zealous man I couldn’t help but love your fire and fight
You would spark a mile wide smile and there was light, light
Now brother I’ve a candle it helps I’ve found
And I remember the day you got shot down.
Beating heart we will meet again
Track Name: The Plan
The Plan

still no word as we flew in, worrying just like they were our own kin and the landscape changes.
the certain taste of things to come and suddenly it just hits home the sun’s beating.
believe me when I say it never goes away not so hazy yesterdays, seeping through the tracks, how come I remember that and not my wife’s name.
hide and seek lad, hide and seek lad, hide and seek.
The centenary will the young still come to hear how we lost and how we won, well a good story will capture imaginations.
hide and seek lad, hide and seek lad, hide and seek.
now we are free and you’re here with me watching that old movie on my T.V and I’m holding my breath again. Holding my breath again
Track Name: Don't Wait Too Long
Don’t wait too long

See the light, golden paradise,
Day is dawning, dawning
Hear the sound, underground
Teeth are talking, talking
Don’t wait too long for me
Taste the fire, cover desire
Body aching, aching
Breathe the mist
Defences, fading, fading
Don’t wait too long for me
Bantam bodies blue and black
Memories hold onto that
Bantam bodies black and blue
These are the things that make you who you are.
Touch the sky, don’t fight.
Track Name: We Knew You Well
We knew you well

On this silent night it spoke to me
I knew very well you were a part of me
I took it as red that this wasn't the end of us now.

I was fooled by the miles under this wishing tree
I sent you a spell you sent it back to me
I knew it was wrong to wish for something better left
I need you to know.

We all walk on but still belong and know
We knew you well

Holding a hand, a fear, a destiny
Now, I'm not afraid of that.
I know there are shadows but they've all shaking hands with what's new
They say hello.

We all walk on but still belong and know
We knew you well.

Not a gesture, a thought or a sin, or a teardrop Will be lost on these grains of time.
We all carry you along
And pass you on, we knew you well.

We all walk on but still belong and know
We knew you well.
Track Name: The Rising
The Rising

So unsure, not quite here
Silence sleeps on this tongue
Bold like butterflies
Inside
Be still now

Beautiful, this world
Set the sun on this cloud
Golden glance. Evanescent
Fearless
Setting free

I heard it sing
I heard it sing
Like a new born thing

It was beautiful,
Beautiful
Beautiful
Track Name: Emily
Emily

Emily picks out her best loved thing
and forces them into one bag.
just sixteen, eyeliner, Hem and Van.
sent by a long distance man.

Emily run with all your fight
open your wings and fly into this light

Pulls on jeans,
t-shirt screens LIVE,LIFE, FAST
times are a changing at last

Emily run with all your fight
open your wings and fly into this light
don't hide anymore
don't hide anymore
don’t hide anymore
Track Name: My Queen
My Queen

Come down my Queen, come down
Bring your light and land with me
Oh come down my Queen, come down
Spread your wings and cover me
Track Name: Save You
Save You
If you want to run, run
it’s a way to get things done
even if you’re weakening
you will find something, you will something within
if you want to jump, jump
it’s a kind of medicine
even if the wall is thick
you can get over it, you will get over it

it will save you
it will save you time

if you want to shout, shout
it’s so good to get things out
even if the air is thin
it can wash away your sin
let the good stuff back in
Track Name: Who Am I?
Who Am I?

If you ask me, what do I need?
I can’t tell you.
Could it be on this wind, or in this tree
That cuts through branches.
Hark, there’s life,
In your sights
Darkness to day
Here am I, changed.
Can’t tell the route to take.
Some dare to liberate.
Who am I?
Send for me
