Nostalgia 05:06
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

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

Footprints 03:04
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

Fish 03:38
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.

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?

Destiny 03:20
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

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

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
