Track Name: I'm on for living
In the belly of the earth
Our hearts in time,
To the motion of
The sun and the moon
Only for the flame
And the soul of stone
So beautiful and blessed we bloom

I’m on for living
Not just surviving
Oh in my offering I call
Enemy teach me
Fear don’t cripple me
And past don’t you haunt me at all

Invisible line
Divine Mother shine
And vision of man Africa.
Bird stood still
Directing all will
To a new day in the depth of man

I’m on for living
Not just surviving
Oh in my offering I call
Enemy teach me
Fear don’t cripple me
And past don’t you haunt me at all

Sun shone down on us from above
All Brother, Sister, to higher love

Enemy teach me
Fear don’t cripple me
And past don’t you haunt me at all
Track Name: Only love is real
Mother’s smile, Father’s jokes
The unknown mile and the Holy Ghost
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you feel
Only love is real

Bend your mind trying to get it in shape
Spend half your time trying to find the brakes
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you feel
Only love is real

You can worry about tomorrow
Or throw it out on the wind
Abandon sorrow
Cause it can’t change anything

And I’m walking on the shore
And I’m letting go Lord
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you feel
Only love is real

You can worry about tomorrow
Throw it out on the wind
Abandon sorrow
Cause it won’t change anything

And I’m walking on the shore
And I’m letting go Lord
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you sing

Only love is king
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you feel
Only love is real
Only love is real
Track Name: Trailing the true star
I for one have got eyes for you
All the promise of January and warmth of June
I’d been down
Down with the crows below
You came in the night, whispering of white
And God knows, God knows

That you’re one of loneliness’s favourite things
Giver of great grace and joy
First blossom of spring

I’d been down
Down with the crows below
You took me by the hand, to make me a better man
And God knows, God knows

I’m sailing not failing
I’m trailing the true star tonight
High up on a crescent moon
Your name is spoken, a dream is woven.

Trailing the true star tonight
Trailing the true star tonight
Trailing the true star tonight

I kissed the morning sun
I pray that our lives will be happy and long
I’m looking down, down at the crows below
I’m not gonna fall in, cause I know what that bring
And God knows, God knows

I’m sailing not failing
I’m trailing the true star tonight
High up on a crescent moon
Your name is spoken, a dream is woven

Trailing the true star tonight
Trailing the true star tonight
Track Name: Potosi mine
40 years digging in the middle of the mine where the silver vein run
Underground down beside Tio,
Up above Pacha Mama and the sun.
Dynamite and the coca leaf
The challa make the whole thing go

A child’s childhood memory is of breaking stone,
Deep down, down beside the riches, the riches contained in stone
There not for me and not for my brother, away the wealth does go

And all of the fat cats they all get their lorry load
For a pittance of the price I bet their wives look nice
While young miners look so old
Exploitation, how the whole thing go
Exploitation, how the whole thing go

Your 40 years digging in the middle of the mine where the silver vein run
Underground down beside Tio,
Up above Pacha Mama and the sun.
Dynamite and the coca leaf
The challa make the whole thing go

Exploitation, how the whole thing go
Exploitation, how the whole thing go
Track Name: Paperboat
I’m gonna fall
Anytime soon
The bow will break
And love will make
Room in my heart for you

Oh you bright star
In the darkest hour
Now I see, now I know
The world needs a lullaby

And you, you make up the most of my time
With all you do and say
You place all my troubles on a paperboat
And you blow em all away

And you warm the hearts
Of all those that meet you
Do ya realise that you never die
You’re only passing through

But I guess that you know
How much I adore you
Ain’t it funny what this live does bring
And love can do to you

And you, you make up the most of my time
With all you do and say
You place all my troubles on a paperboat
And you blow em all away
You place all my troubles on a paperboat
You blow em all away
Track Name: Planets to stars
Your love is what’s making me able
I thank you for my life, Queen of angels
Planets to stars, and stars to wishes

Your cloak it flows orange and silver
The moon upon your brow, Oh my Gabriel
Boulders to stones, and stones to pebbles

Romance she danced ‘round my door
The past is gone it is no more
Shadow to dream, and I dream of new beginning

Cause your love is what’s making me able
I thank you for my life, Queen of angels
Planets to stars and stars to wishes
Planets to stars and stars to wishes
Track Name: Shadow on the wall
When the time is right but I’m too blind
You may look for me
I’m just the shadow on the wall

When I’m saying things that are cruel and unkind
I’m so sorry
But don’t listen to me
I’m just the shadow on the wall

If you only knew, if you knew me better
So much more to me
Than this shadow on the wall

When rain gets wild and tries to act all clever
Shelter me
From the shadow on the wall

And if it looks like it’s the final tether
Remember
Light cast the shadow on the wall
Track Name: Hell bent on you
I’m hell bent on you
Angels are easy to loose
They say love is blind
Is that why I can’t find you

I’m polishing silver
I’m digging for gold
Laying to bed with the sun
Old bones and rosary stones
And all that was once said and done

Oh mercy me
The looking glass looked at me
And I saw magic that I can’t quite put my finger on

We got lost in the gale
And the wind ran away with our song
My heart went right off the rails
And it felt like it never belonged
A rock of a girl, a jasmine pearl
She glowed red from afar
Pierced my heart with her spark
Then she left of a shooting star

Oh mercy me
The looking glass looked at me
And I saw magic that I can’t quite put my finger on

Oh I’m hell bent on you
Angels are easy to loose
They say that love is blind
Is that why I can’t find you

I’m polishing silver
I’m digging for gold
I’m laying to bed with the sun
Old bones and rosary stones
And all that was once said and done

Oh mercy me
The looking glass looked at me
And I saw magic that I can’t quite put my finger on
I saw magic
That I can’t put my finger on
Track Name: Palace of the heart
Palace of the heart
Though in a hidden place
Can be brighter than the stone within the crown

Big light shine from a little brave boy
I’ve seen your face
Among my dreams among the clouds

Oh I ask the softness in your eyes
Surprise the ghost in me once again
The soul of solo wants to cry
Settles for the paper and the pen

Oh, I gotta flame for somebody
But the wind keeps blowing it in
Oh, gotta flame for somebody
But the wind keeps blowing it in

Magic moments and big mistakes
Upon this wheel that’s moving spinning round
Dear comet, cometh, take me from this place
I have burned the bridge I’ve pulled it down
Can you hold my hands I’ve gone so dark inside
Can you help me to turn and face the sun
Big light shine from a little brave boy
Will you show your face
Cause I, I can’t finish what I begun

Oh, I gotta flame for somebody
But the wind keeps blowing it in
Oh, I gotta flame for somebody
But the wind keeps blowing it in

And certainly I’m uncertain most of the time
Don’t you waste on me
Cause there’s so much upstairs I can’t find
Certainly I’m uncertain most of the time
Don’t you waste on me
Cause there’s so much upstairs I can’t find you

Oh, I gotta flame for somebody
But the wind keeps blowing it in
I gotta flame for somebody
But the wind keeps blowing it in
Track Name: Neon lights
Through all the neon lights of Amsterdam
I wonder who the hell, who I am
When again comes the time that I can feel that I belong
But I know one thing for certain this mouth of mine was made for song

To brighten up someone’s day
Takes so very little
So why is there so much pain in this world
And so many tears trickle

Devious men send soldiers to fight their war
And the poor just flight out the cold
Tonight I’m sad cause I feel that we can’t change a thing
If really the truth be told

Running around in the melody
And sussing it out on the line
And of, Mother Nature’s recipes
I am sure she’ll find me all in her own time

Can’t be taking out more than that we return
Yeah you smother the throat that gives the earth it’s song
And just think, what makes you breathe
You chop the hand that feed
What makes you breathe
You chop the hand that feed

Silence is all that this world once was
Nature so vast and calm
Won’t you take your time
Take it all in and then you’ll see
Just how small is man

Anchor me away to the depth of love
In my fine blue silence I shall never go back above

I know that love is a fly kite
Love is a train
A one-way plane
Away from pain

Love is fly kite
Love is a train
It’s a one-way plane
Away

Running around in the melody
Sussing it out on the line
Mother Nature’s recipes
I am sure she’ll find me all in her own
Running around in the melody
Sussing it out on the line
And of Mother Nature’s recipes
I am sure she’ll find me all in her own time
Track Name: Sober clown
I’m glad you’re happy now
I know you did what you had to do
It’s just that,
My road is clear of traffic, I’m going walking
But I wish to God I was walking with you
And I’ve been spending too much time alone
I’ve gripped the fact now that I’m on my own
Brooding too much on memories
And I’ll admit that I was kinda bitter to the bone

Gifts of poetry lay suspended in the air
I watched them all go by
I didn’t even care
Gifts of poetry lie suspended in the air
When I’m back on my feet
I’m gonna strip that orchard bare

Sun up and down
And then the moons around
And all the while they’re watching us
We’re in different towns
And you were a Christmas song
You made me merrily on high
But correct me if I’m wrong
Love will make you cry
My eyes were always open
But I had sleep in the way
Like webs of frost
On forests walks
On Winter’s day
And as a rain cloud paint
Mountain in my dream
I wanna wake as the mountain
So the mist will be my dream

Gifts of poetry lay suspended in the air
I watched them all go by
I didn’t even care
Gifts of poetry lie suspended in the air
When I’m back on my feet
I’m gonna strip that orchard bare

Through domino wind
Birds scream through the sky
He’s one tear away
And two from the reason why
And as the bird glides over
The water’s pulse
Into the mist I wish like it to be lost
We all get down
But the drunk band sound
Was just the sober clown
Love is a melody
Which can change so unexpectedly

Gifts of poetry lay suspended in the air
I watched them all go by
I didn’t even care
Gifts of poetry lie suspended in the air
When I’m back on my feet
I’m gonna strip that orchard bare

Gifts of poetry lay suspended in the air
I watched them all go by
I didn’t even care
And gifts of poetry now lie suspended in the air
And I’m back on my feet
I’m ready to strip this orchard bare
Track Name: No more lie
I know I am the blossom
Of all that burns inside
I know I am the blossom
Of all that burns inside

I am walking
I’m walking
What I seek
I will find

If I tell myself
No more lie
No more lie
If tell myself
No more lie

I know I am the morning
That decides the day
I know I am the morning
That decides the day

When the night come
The night come
I need not be alone

If I tell myself
No more lie
No more lie
If tell myself
No more lie

The stone that shape the river
It softens then it dies
The stone that shapes the river
It softens then it dies

Walk on water
On water
And I will be home soon

If I tell myself
No more lie
No more lie
If tell myself
No more lie

The sun that lights the day
It shine on one and all
The sun that lights the day yeah
It shines on one and all

I feel the wind change
The wind change
And love blow through my soul

When I tell myself
No more lie
No more lie
If tell myself
No more lie

If I tell myself
No more lie
