Track Name: The Good Fight
Step into the good fight
Sketch the day, paint the night
Hold onto your word
Weak or strong, small or tall
Summer sun, autumn fall
Know that everyone gets strange
It’s ok

To receive or give away
With lots to tell or nothing to say
When everything has changed
When your lowest of low
You’re on top of the world
Dreaming light or you’re ghostly cold
What goes up come down

How can I forever keep the morning’s fairytale
When awaits the midday blues

Like dry hosts the rain
Like fire stages it’s flame
Their both cradling time
Windy lanes and chair-o-planes
Corner boys
My mamma complains
Now how sweet that memory

How can I forever keep the morning’s fairytale
When awaits the midday blues
Not until my last thought goes down
The rain has found home
That old suns out shone
Will I go to where sight is not with they eye
And the wind’s all cried out
I know sight ‘s not with the eye

Hush little baby
Don’t say a word
Cause momma’s gonna buy you a mocking bird

Hush little baby
Don’t say a word
Cause momma’s gonna buy you a mocking bird
Track Name: The late train
Let all your feelings through
The sun would never try to be the rain
In this great kingdom
Where no two flowers are the same
People are dream machines
Stop tryin to fix what is not broken

Lots of different people
Same frown
Dream of a better life
All wrapped up in the town
But it’s never too late to take the late train

Sitting by my window
Feeling grace as sunlight hits the floor
It’ll be that dust dance at the break of dawn
That I most adore
And I’d like to believe that someday
We’ll know the nature of all things to the core

Lots of different people
Same frown
Dream of a better life
Get all wrapped up in the town
But it’s never too late to take the late train

All aboard that’s going to board
All aboard that’s going to board
All aboard that’s going to board
All aboard that’s going to board

Lots of different people
Same frown
Dream of a better life
All wrapped up in the town
But it’s never too late to take the late train
Track Name: No time for crowds
I’ve not time for crowds now
Nor the crimes they bring
No, nor for the games they wanna play
I don’t care to lose and I, I couldn’t care if win
Hit the nail on the head and don’t try to smooth out the ride
Cause both you and I know now that it’s high time

Baby you won’t break
You’ll just follow the signs

Get your things together
I’ve prayed for sunny weather
It’s going to work this time

I’m focusing on the mountain
And I’ve turned my back on the wall
Any given day, any given hour
I can learn from the waterfall
Hit the nail on the head and don’t try to smooth out the ride
Cause both you and I know now that it’s high time

No no, you won’t break
You’ll just follow the signs
Get your things together
I’ve prayed for sunny weather
And I believe it’s going to work this time

Here the world feels like paradise
Today I want nothing better
No smell sweeter, there’s no love stronger
There’s no music more moving
No silence more soothing
Today I am just happy to be, here in paradise
I am here in paradise
Track Name: Night hawks
You stole things from the night
Told lies when on all fours
I sang and bluffed my way
I get along very well, of course I do

The night sky is almost finished
Nighthawk’s dreams have just begun

My favourite jacket is dead
I’m gonna find me new moves
Who’s gonna draw the blinds
I’m easy where it goes from here, you choose

The night sky is almost finished
Nighthawk’s dreams have just begun

And now all trace of you is gone
But a wind pocket of your perfume
Good come to those who wait
Only reality is not real anyhow

The night sky is almost finished
Nighthawk’s dreams have just begun

Desperately trying to find
A moment of yours and mine

The night sky is almost finished
Nighthawk’s dreams have just begun

Night sky is almost finished
Nighthawk’s dreams have just begun
The night sky is finished
Track Name: What would I know
There is a laughter, drowning in the breeze
It’s a poor thing your momma’s gotta cry
A 5.30 magpie shouting from it’s tree
I see this summer undercover
I’m blowing it’s disguise

I don’t know
What would I know?

Prayer flags prayer gallops on wind
Temples children journey in light
Our missionaries mission is to win
But I know that true fighters swing not swords but kites

I don’t know
What would I know?

I heard the wind and it had me dancing nice and slow
I vowed my very best, I’d take a stand
Who knows how the time works
Or where it all goes
Why everyone wants happiness, but not everyone is holding out there hand

I don’t know
What would I know?
Track Name: Lily
Your smile is so refreshing
You’re a comedy wrapped up in a lesson
Footstep light as light
Bless you in your good fight, Lily

It all boils down to wind
But where the sail lies that’s the thing
Amid the scribble and the noise
And our need for bigger toys, Lily

When I feel it freezing over
You here and you make me feel at home

Not even a dandelion skeleton
Could have brought around this wish
No dream nor falling star
From the mother ship
Somewhere a perfect day
Aware of all we do and say, Lily

My happy place down the red bridge lane
Watching me grow while it remains the same
There I find the force
Where things just run their course

When I feel it freeing over
You here and you make me feel at home
What are the secrets that you bring
From the darkness you raise your head and sing, Lily

Not even a dandelion skeleton
Could have brought around this wish
Not even a dandelion skeleton
Could have brought around this wish
Track Name: Hairpin
There’s a stone in my shoe
And I’ve had quite a few
The party’s long over
The walk ’s knocked me sober
I see you at the hairpin
Dancing in a drain with the moon

I stop dead in my tracks
And crouch hunker low
There’s two lights ‘round you dancing
My heart’s quick time marching
I see you at the hairpin
Dancing in a drain with the moon

Deep root notes on a bass baritone
Shake the leaves where I’m standing
Rain drops abandon
I see you at the hairpin
Dancing in a drain with the moon

There’s mornings I don’t even wanna tie my laces
I know my walking be outta time
Tonight will end I know
Just pray tomorrow won’t blow
Ill wind that squanders the light

There’s a stone in my shoe
And I’ve had quite a few
The party’s long over
The walk ’s knocked me sober
I see you at the hairpin
Dancing in a drain with the moon

There’s mornings I don’t even wanna tie my laces
I know my walking be outta time
Tonight will end I know
I pray tomorrow won’t blow
The ill wind that squanders the light

Cause there’s a stone in my shoe
I gotta stone in my shoe
There’s a stone in my shoe
Track Name: Life is more perfect than gold
Invite me please to the fairy dance
I’ll write a song for the ball
You can teach me how to make those rusty leaves
How do they swirl in the fall

Fire me from the mouth of a cannon
Pixie land that I long to see
Where Tom Thumb caught wind about the riches
Of one Jack and a bean

The sky she’s in her evening attire
There’s hallelujah etched in my soul
Your love and the night breeze
Is taking me higher
Man, why can’t you see
Life is more perfect than gold

Single me out of this maddening crowd
Fling me into the hands
Of wizardry and sorcery
Just for one night make me anything but a man
Cause most times I catch a glimpse of the fire
But these days my spirit’s on hold
Catapult me inwardly I wanna know everything
That my vessel holds

The sky she’s in her evening attire
There’s hallelujah etched in my soul
And your love and the night breeze
The moon is taking me higher

Man, why can’t you see
That life is more perfect than gold
Man, why can’t you see
That life is more perfect than gold
Track Name: In you come
The salt west winds and the brazen boys
Come young lovers, let your drums make noise
In you come
Boy you don’t need to run

I’m gaining speed as I, I make my way
With two clenched fists that are raining clay
In you come
Boy you don’t need to run

I tied a wish upon the Hawthorn tree
In hopin all the other wishes would be achieved
In you come
Boy you don’t need to run

Blue tongue tide meets the silent shore
With no worries, players, games and no score
In you come
Boy you don’t need to run

No worries, players, games and no score
With no worries, players, games and no score
With no worries, players, games and no score
With no worries, players, games and no score

In you come
Boy you don’t need to run
In you come
Boy you don’t need to run
In you come
Boy you don’t need to run
Track Name: Delaney lied
In that mind of mine, so long ago
I swear there were lightening
There seemed to follow me wherever I did go
This great rainbow yawning
But Delaney lied, he said ‘Santa Claus is dead
And there is no man in the moon’
The little dog laughed all out of his head
When he heard the dish, split up with the spoon

And I seem to try
Be it right or wrong
To find the little boy

Now it’s high time for dawn to break
Jingle jangle shake the hue
The worm, the early bird and the snowflake
Will only hang around till noon

But Delaney didn’t lied, he said
‘It’s tough to get a kite
Up and moving in the rain
This mouth of fire met a head like a clock
Never again would things be the same

And I seem to try
Is it right is it wrong
To find the little boy
You gotta dig deep for some colour
And at first it’s a shock I know

I seem to try
Be it right or wrong
To find the little boy
