Track Name: Nostalgia
As a child I always knew I’d one day leave my home
Was excited by the world outside the great, big unknown
So I set forth just as soon as I could with a pack-back and guitar
Was determined to find my way, to somehow leave my mark

Now I’ve spent these years wandering, I’m in a different place
And every road I traveled to, touched me in another way
So many people, so many friendships and so many stories
Climbed in my heart and they’ll stay they forever, ‘cause their now a part of me

I’ll never be alone
I’ll never be alone
I’ll never be alone
Cause you’re with
You’re all with me, today

There are times when I can spend whole hours reflecting on the past
Memories of moments that I’ve had, shine out from the looking glass
And a day doesn’t go by without someone’s words or face touching my heart
And I want you to all know the lessons you’ve taught me, will always light my path

Wisdom’s shown I can never know what the future holds for me
If the past is a guide, when looking forward, there’s sure to be uncertainty
But one thing I know, one thing that’s true, one thing I’ll bet my life on
The bond that’s between us, will never be broken, because you, created me
Track Name: Mr Fancy Pants
We met under a tree, on a Sunday morning in the park
Saw you standing cockily, admiring me from afar
Caught your eye then steadily, you came across like you were on stage
I couldn’t help but laugh at your spectacular charade! (Because)

You’re not who think you are (no)!
You’re not who you think you are: Mr fancy clothes and flashy car!
You’re not who think you are!

As the sun leveled in the sky, I tried to feign diplomacy
Explained that your not my type, and kindly asked you to leave
It seemed that it wasn’t my day, its seemed it wasn’t meant to be
Had to find another for you to get the picture and leave

Lean in and listen close,
Let me give you some advice
Your dazzling words are just a show
Not the man beneath the clothes
I’m not interested in
Superficiality
Play your game if you like
But leave me to be in mine
Track Name: Footprints
Wishful memories, broken dream of you and me
We painted a picture of happiness forever gone

Our illusion was shattered by reality
Now the time has come to set each other free
We keep holding onto what we had and we’re not moving forward
I cant stand in former footprints anymore

A bitter sweet mountain we climbed, but the road is closed
Dangers faced, challenges fought, but the battle lost

Cause our slumber was awakened by reality
Now the time has come to set each other free
We keep holding onto what we had and we’re not moving forward
I cant stand in former footprints anymore
Track Name: Fish
If I were a fish, I’d rather swim in the sea, than have a fish bowl mentality
If I were a dog, I’d spent my time running peacefully, playing in the leaves, joyfully

Who do you want to be, in this garden?
Anything you dream/think, you can be, anything at all.

If I were a cloud, I’d float around the world, twirling through the sky, very high
If I were a rose, I’d smell as sweet as could be, touching everyone with my energy

If I were a man, I’d likely pee on a tree, just to have that special ability
If I were a frog I’d spend my time hoping round the pond, looking for ladies to rake home with me.

Who do you want to be, in this garden?
A brand new face against the crowd
A fresh idea into the world
Anything that makes your heart really sing, you can be anything at all.
Track Name: The Waking Day
Wake up its half past 6, the clock spins around again
Eyes trip on the creeping light, that peeps into my bed
Stumble forward into the kitchen for inspiration and my morning tea
Like an artist with an empty canvas, I’m filled with curiosity

Do you feel it? A fire burning deep inside?

Everyday has a new gift to bring
In every moment there’s a new song to sing
So your words touch mine, my thoughts move yours; we pass through our lives as we’ve never done before
Every morning paints a new story, to me

Lean back against the window ledge and breathe with the waking day
A glowing sun amidst a gentle sky, wash my sleep away
Out on the street familiar sounds groan and shake awake the neighborhood
Looking out to this brand new hour’s got me smiling down to my toes

Can you feel it? A power swirling deep inside?

Sunshine, coffee and lengthy shower, get me ready for some action
A fat breakfast with a “to-do” list, becomes priority number one
With high heels on and expectations I tweak the day’s last effect
Leave the house with an open mind and excitement in my step

Do you feel it? A thunder churning deep inside?
Track Name: Destiny
One day a little boy went walking around the world
Bag on his back, thumb to the road
A cardboard sign his destination
What fate had in store he didn’t know

One day a little girl decided to go back home
She’d been wandering for so long
Needed to get some piece of mind
And spend some time,
Watching out for the signs

Destiny has a mind of its own
Fixes your boat and floats you down the road
Two travelers in time, fixed the road so they would find each other
And so our story goes

One night our heroin lay sleeping silently
When an SOS came through the phone
A distant wanderer was looking for a ride
And someone to rest his aching soul

This same night our hero was cold
Was beaten down from tales past
A long journey had left him with a weary head
And a broken heart

The next day two lives were changed
When the little boy looked in her eyes
Thunder n lightning struck, cupid hit his mark
All in a fleeting gaze
Track Name: Yours Eternally
Seeing your words on the page
Move like fingers across my face
The sound of your voice lights this space
Memories on a stage

Time passes slowly, gone too fast
Yesterday’s far away from the moment, today

Sitting here, in the comfort of our home
With walls so warm, yet I feel alone.
I’m wondering how to find the balance we need
Between the pieces that make us happy

Time passes slowly, gone too fast
Yesterday’s far away from the moment, today

Take my hand, dance with me. Together we’ll find what we need
Take my hand, dance with me. Love sets us free

We’ll never feel the same
All we have is here
This moment
But your far away

Time passes slowly, gone too fast
Yesterday’s far away from the moment, today

Take my hand, dance with me. Together we’ll find what we need
Take my hand, dance with me. Love sets us free
Take my hand, dance with me. Moving eternally
Take my hand, dance with me. Love sets us free
Track Name: Her Lover's Cup
Blue eyes stare across the open sea
An empty space before destiny
She searches hard to find a memory
Tries to grab the one she seeks

Her lover’s cup lies at her feet
His touch lingers in the breeze
Can smell his scent lying on the pillowcase
Can trace the outline of his face

Count down the seconds and the days
Until we meet again

In another place, where time stands still
We’ll hold each other through the night and never let go
In another time, far from here
Life will never end. We’ll be together
She said

An empty house has become her home now
Photos line the walls
His things remain just the way they were
The night he walked out the door

Count down the seconds and the days
Until we meet again

Blue eyes stare across the open sea
Search hard to find the courage that she needs
Her lover’s cup stands in her hands
And silently she frees him on the breeze

Count down the seconds and the days
Until we meet again
