Track Name: Dream
Dream, they told me to dream
Dream, and so I dreamed
Cause you were the angel sent to open my heart
Love so strong, we were never apart, and I dreamed, yes I dreamed

Chorus:
Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, you were my cocoon,
My sweet loving angel, you were my shelter from the rain

Dream, oh how we dreamed
Dream, yes we loved to dream,
Cause you came and held me, made me part of your song,
Love so strong, how could it go wrong, and we dreamed,
yes we dreamed

Chorus

Dream, you know I’m still going to dream
Dream, it’s so important to dream
Without love around us, there’s no place to go
We have to believe, what else is there to know?
So lets dream, dream, lets dream

Chorus

Dream, dream, lets all dream, lets all dream
Think about what do you want, what do you need,
How do you want to live?
Dream, dream, it’s so important to dream, lets all dream
Lets all dream
Track Name: Stay
The first throws of love, that very first kiss
The tightness in my belly as I try to resist
Our souls are dancing, as they begin to entwine
Yes our souls are dancing, as they begin to shine

How can it be that I’ve been here before, but it feels like the first time that I’ve known it all
My hands are shaking, my hearts open wide
And my soul is dancing, as it begins to shine, as it begins to entwine

Chorus:
Cause there’s something in your smile, something in your way,
Something in your smile, that makes me want to ask you,
ask you to stay (won’t you just) stay (I’d like you to) stay

We could, take some time, drink some wine, stare out to sea feel ourselves unwind,
The wind in our hair, our fingers entwined
Read to the other from each of our books, sing some songs give each other a look,
And find ways to say, how much we care

Chorus

Perfection’s not something that I create, it’s something that comes,
I just had to wait
I was trying so hard to make it OK, now I’ve given it some time, and it has come my way, yes it has come my way

Chorus

I’ve got the love, I’ve got the peace, I’ve got the smiles under morning sheets
I’ve got the quivers down my spine, I’ve got the shivers that
Make you mine, Yes they make you mine, and I still shine, yes I still shine
Track Name: Gliding (Ups and Downs)
Life is all ups and downs
And I can feel them coming round
And it helps me to know they just come and go

And when I feel the down coming round
I can get scared that I might drown
But it helps me to know they just come and go

Chorus:
Cause we were meant to be free
Elevate ourselves with belief
Like a bird soaring high on the waves of the air
Gliding, gliding, gliding

Lets imagine ourselves gliding
That feeling of being free
Living with our hearts and our souls
Letting things come and go

For if imagination is a thought
Then we can manifest it all
And surely we will know to just let it come and go

Chorus:

Life is all ups and downs
And I can feel them coming round
And it helps me to know they just come and go

Lets imagine ourselves gliding
That feeling of being free
Living with our hearts and our souls
Letting things come and go
Letting things come and go...
Track Name: Free to Love
Free to love, free to be, free to have you look at me
Free to laugh, free to cry, free to have emotions high
Free to touch, free to go, free to see how life unfolds
Free, I’m feeling free ee ee

What you gonna do with that smile?
Is it directed my way what are you trying to say
So you think your gonna just, pass my way
With a touch of the hand, electricity stands
The closeness of touch can you feel it

I’m free, being me, and I’d be a fool to be charmed by your manly commands,
I’m feeling free, free

So you give your smile another try,
I’ll play your game for a while but it won’t be for long
Cause I’m free, being me,
And your attracted to that but I won’t be your catch, I’ll be walking away

Free to love, free to be, free to have you look at me
Free to laugh, free to cry, free to have emotions high
Free to touch, free to go, free to see how life unfolds
Free, I’m feeling free ee ee
Track Name: Rhythm in My Bones
See the old woman, sat all patient on her own
What’s her life story, has it ever, ever been told
Do you think she might be lonely, or do you think she’s had a ball
Is she happy with her choices, do you think she’s got it all?

Cause she’s got rhythm in her bones, won’t leave her alone
A vibration going down to her core
And the life that she leads, reflects the love she needs
And her rhythm comes alive on the floor

Chorus:
Cause I've got rhythm in her bones, won’t leave me alone
It’s a vibration going down to my core
And the life that I lead, reflects the love I need
And my rhythm comes alive on the floor

If we could all connect to our rhythm,
Just imagine what we could create
With the freedom in our hearts, we could manifest the stars
And peace would never be erased

See the old woman, sat all patient on her own
What’s her life story, has it ever, ever been told
Do you think she might be lonely, or do you think she’s had a ball
Is she happy with her choices, do you think she’s got it all?

Chorus

If we could all connect to our rhythm,
Just imagine what we could create
With the freedom in our hearts, we could manifest the stars
And peace would never be erased

So lets all connect to our rhythm,
and imagine what we can create, right here, right now
With the freedom in our hearts, we can manifest the stars
And peace will never be erased
Yes peace will never be erased
Yes peace will never be erased
Track Name: In My Head
I’ve been using the world of attraction, most of my life
As a way of distracting from the loneliness I felt inside, I felt inside
Just a little look here, a little smile there
Enough to make me feel like he really cared, like he really cared

But a pattern was forming needed turning around,
Didn’t want the voice of loneliness to distract me from what was sound
Cause he wasn’t James Dean, no he wasn’t Johnny Depp
That was all just a little game I was playing in my head, in my head

Chorus:
And ohhh, I had exactly what I need
Just needed to feed the strength in me,
Yes, ohhh, I had exactly what I need
Just needed to feed the strength in me

I’ve listened to the voice of loneliness and you know it’s really not that bad
The fear of what it had to say is what made me feel so sad
Cause I needed to feel needed, I needed to feel love
But I’m the one that needed me and you know fake love is not enough, its not enough

Chorus:

I know I can be happy now because I’ve found some faith in me
No longer scared of loneliness or how it’s going to be
And if I feel it coming I can open up my door
Cause it gives me strength and lets me know that I deserve more,
I deserve more

Chorus:
And ohhh, I have exactly what I need
Just needed to feed the strength in me,
Ohhh, have exactly what I need someone who inspires me
Yes, ohhh, I have exactly what I need
Someone who has faith in me
Faith in me
Track Name: Blinded
Blinded by people, blinded by faith,
Blinded by the corporations throwing about their weight
Blinded by religion, blinded by war
Blinded by the politicians settling their scores

Confused by people, disappointed with love
Why is it so many of just seem to have no luck
Hurt by decisions, withdrawn with pain
Frightened that life itself just seems to have no gain

Chorus:
Cause if we don’t write our own fait, If we don’t write our own fait
If we don’t open the blinds, it’s hard to be awake
If we don’t write our own fait, if we don’t write our own fait
If we don’t put down the lines, what destiny awaits

Saddened by conflict and filled with rage
Trying to mend the pieces of someone else’s game
Longing for closeness, but scared to touch
Surely we must reach the point when we have had enough

Chorus

Cause if we open our minds, and clean the slate
Take a step back from the fear
If we open our minds, what can we create, what can we create
What can we create

Encouraged by people, enriched by faith
Enlightened by the corporations throwing about their weight
Supported by religion, educated through war
Empowered by the politicians settling their scores

Cause when we write down our own fait, when we write down our own fait,
When we open up the blinds, we keep ourselves awake,
When we write down our own fait

It's time to write down, it's time to write down yeh
It's time to write down, lets start writing down our own fait
Lets start writing our own fait
Track Name: Seagulls
Sea the clouds drifting as they come into ponder,
Oh to be drifting
The wind goes right through me and it breaks down my armor,
Oh to be drifting

Chorus:
And the seagulls fly so high, the wind carries them for miles
There wing span spread so wide
How they fly

See the corn glisten as the wind paints its picture
Oh what a picture
The clouds form the shade, the sun lifts and glimmers
Oh what a picture

Chorus

And who are we to know, who are we to steal,
this beauty that belongs to us all
When did we lose our way, create our own unique wheel,
We are not the only ones that feel
We are not the only ones, we are not the only ones
We are not the only ones that feel

Sea the clouds drifting as they come into ponder,
Oh to be drifting
The wind goes right through me and it breaks down my armor,
Oh to be drifting

Chorus
How they fly, how they fly…
Track Name: Sense of Something (Searching)
I’ve been searching for a feeling
Searching for a feeling
Searching for a feeling that I somehow know

I look across the room, there’s an angel in my sights
No words can say, can half explain, what I feel inside

Cause I’ve been searching for a feeling
Searching for a feeling
Searching for a feeling that I somehow know
And when I get that feeling I think it’s gonna grow

I look across the room and see into those eyes
So full of kindness, it’s hard to face them
He reaches for me and hold my head up high
I can see a sense of somethingness and I’m embracing
Yes I’m embracing

Cause I’ve been searching for a feeling
Searching for a feeling
Searching for a feeling that I somehow know
And when I get that feeling I think it’s gonna grow
Cause that feeling its connected, connected to my soul.
Track Name: Light Up My Life
I am sat all alone in my living room
And I am looking at the picture of me and you
And it makes me smile (makes me smile) cause you’ll soon be near
And the room feels so big with only me here

Chorus:
Cause you fill up my space, you light up my life
Yes you fill up my space, light up my life
Light up light up, light up light up, light up, light up
You light up my life

Well I'm in my own world just thinking of you
My own beautiful world just thinking of you
And what a life to be part of
So deep the love, two souls entwined

Light up light up, light up light up, light up, light up
You light up my life, ohh

Chorus:

Light up my life, ohh
Light up my life, ohh
Light up my life
Track Name: Balance to Be
The balance to be, yet create our own truth
Is a difficult path and one we all have to do
Do we crumble and fall, or do we make ourselves strong
When it all seems confused and the essence seems gone
Do we need to decide, which way we should go
Or should we just live our lives and let the future unfold?

Chorus:
Cause we all have our path, we all have our truth
It comes deep from our souls, and our fear can make us confused
But if I fly so high to get the angels view
That’s when I know exactly what to do

Which way to turn when the essence has gone
Do we crumble and fall or do we make ourselves strong
Is it OK to feel all the things that I feel
Or should I hide them away, not reveal the ordeal
Do we need to decide, which way we should go
Or should we just live our lives and let the future be told?

Chorus

The balance to be, yet create our own truth
Is a difficult path and one we all have to do
When it all seems so wrong, so intense and confused
Just take a step back, get the angels view
Cause it OK to be, whoever we are
Confused, mad and loving they can all play a part

Chorus
