Track Name: Sunlight
Winter has come back ‘round

Its time

For me to skip this town and drive



The years been good to me

I Don’t

Want to tempt catastrophe by sticking ‘round.



White lines & sunlight

You cant hit a moving target



I’m going to start a band

And drive

All over this wide land

I’ll be singing songs

Forget what I’m runnin’ from



And I hope you’ll wait for me

back east

You’ll keep the light on there

And the sheets on our bed made and clean for me.



White lines and sunlight

You cant hit a moving target



You are delicate

And you’re the one that turns me on

But chasing the horizon

Aint no way to rest your bones



Before you know it

I’ll be coming home



White lines and sunlight

You cant hit a moving target

Blue days and black nights

I’ll search until I’ve found it

Forever mine

I’ll be home before you know it.
Track Name: Wine & Consequence
A letter from the queen

As far as I’m concerned

She spoke of wine and consequence

Of love and lessons learned



And if I could I’d run until I fell to get her back

But London’s much too far away for that



My letter to the queen

Was long and overdue

I spoke of guilt and broken things

I wish I could renew



And if I could I’d scream aloud till she came running back

But London’s much too far away for that



Oh the same sun is shining down upon us all

If I could write on it in letters wide and tall

I’d say “I wont give in no matter how long you are gone”

No matter how long you’re gone



And you’d know it was for you



A letter from the queen

In a code I’d like to learn

She spoke of time, companionship

And reaping what we’ve earned



And If she said she loved me

I’d whisper that I love her back

But London’s much to far away for that

And Dublin’s much to far away for that

And Rome is much to far away for that



Oh the same sun is shining down upon us all

If I could write on it in letters wide and tall

I’d say “I wont give I no matter how long you are gone”

No matter how long you’re gone

How long you’re gone.
Track Name: Ambers Lullaby
I had a dream that we were flying

I had a dream and you were there

And in the dream we started falling



But you were never even scared

No , you just took me by the hand



I had a dream and we were sailing

Out on an Ocean made of light

And everything we touched was glowing



We illuminate the night

We illuminate the night



The world is big

And we are small

But I don’t even mind

In our dreams we’ll see it all

And we’ll go traveling through time

So rest your head and close your eyes



I had a dream and we were walking

Through a field so far below

The mountains all around us towering

And they were made from solid gold

The were made from solid gold



The world is big

And we are small

But I don’t even mind

In our dreams we’ll see it all

And we’ll go traveling through time

So rest your head and close your eyes



Your bed is made your sheets are ready

And you are tired from the day

I’ll sing a lullaby my darlin’

Till sleep takes you away

Until sleep takes you away

You’ll wake up to a brand new day

My darlin’ go in dreams and play.
Track Name: It'll Be Awhile
I’ve been feeling like the world is ending today

There was smoke and there was fire it was all in my brain

I took a risk, took a chance but it didn’t work out

I feel the work-a-days on the train staring me down



It’ll be awhile but I know that I’ll be fine

Just stay the course and take the falls

It just takes time



You called me up you said, “I’m feeling like a leaf on the sea

Time go’s so fast the only thing I can remember is leaving”

I feel it too and I’ve searched through every bar in this town

For a drink or a pill that will help it go down



It’ll be awhile but I know that I’ll be fine

Just stay the course and take the falls

It just takes time



I know it can be hard

When you’re chasing days

When the sun is setting it raising once again somewhere



So in the morning lets do nothing till a quarter to 3

And then we’ll walk down by the harbour and look back at the city

We’ll watch the clouds, and the boats, and the plane’s as they fly

We’ll think of ways to stop us feeling like were saying goodbye

All the time



It’ll be awhile but I know that we’ll be fine

Just stay the course and take the falls

It just takes time



It’ll be awhile but I know that we’ll be fine

Just stay the course and take the falls

It just takes time.
Track Name: Satellite
I’ve been

Roaming the world like a leaf on the sea

Following currents and chasing the breeze

There’s salt in my eyes

And I’ve no idea where I’ve been



The satellites fly

Over above me like the stars they shine

I feel that it’s you looking down from their eyes

It fills me with hope

That you go wherever I go



Oh, my love and my life

Keep me by your side

I feel that I’m sinking

And love

For what it is worth

I’m roaming the earth to find us a better life

So stay with me satellite



The shore finds me

Deep in the darkest night and now I’m blowing

Up through the forest and over the tree’s

Wherever I go, your somewhere above me I know



Oh, my love and my life

Keep me by your side

I feel that I’m sinking

And love

For what it is worth

I’m roaming the earth to find us a better life

So stay with me satellite



The tree’s clear

I’m now in a town that looks so familiar

And everything that we could need I right here

I’m searching through windows

I’m trying to find you

And everyone knows you

But no one has seen you

I think I might know where you are



Oh, my love and my life

Keep me by your side

I feel that I’m sinking

And love

For what it is worth

I’m roaming the earth to find us a better life

So stay with me satellite.
Track Name: The Sailor Song
I feel like a shivering child

I’m watching the day turn to night

The wind’s a policeman

Telling me “Go back inside”



I thought about chances I’d missed

This cant last forever oneday something will stick

As the twilight twirled above our heads



I would give anything for someone who’d listen

And I would give anything for someone who’d care

I’ll write you a love song and then tear it to pieces

So no one will ever hear



Now the sailors have all come ashore

As the waves beat the boats on the moors

Now that their back I cant see the horizon no more

I keep finding letters all water logged washed on the shore



I would give anything for someone who’d listen

And I would give anything for someone who’d care

I’ll write you a love song and then tear it to pieces

So no one will ever hear



Maybe I’m a castaway

And there’s a search party looking for me

Making a fire with twigs and old leaves when they see the smoke

They think it’s a cloud that they’re seeing.



I’ve still got nothing to show

until I teach myself how to build boats



I would give anything for someone who’d listen

And I would give anything for someone who’d care

I’ll write you a love song and then tear it to pieces

So no one will ever hear.
