WHEN THE SUN SHINES 2020

WHEN THE SUN SHINES
When the sun shines It’s gonna be alright
When the sun shines It’s gonna be alright
The clouds have rolled in, the rain has come down
The world is so dark but don’t you frown
Cause when the sun shines, mmm

Skies will be blue no matter where you go
Skies will be blue no matter where you go
You can be in the sea, or up on the moon
You can be here or there, or anywhere soon
Skies will be blue, mmm

Though it feels like sometimes you’re alone
Look up at the sky let your eyes roam
Take in all the beauty of our sweet sweet home
This earth is more than we know

There’s a rainbow up in the sky
There’s a rainbow up in the sky
If you walk to the end then there might
Be a pot of gold that you’’ill find
There’s a rainbow mmm

Though it feels like sometimes you’re alone
Look up at the sky let your eyes roam
Take in all the beauty of our sweet sweet home
This earth is more than we know

Now the sunshines oh so bright
And the blue skies are so light
And a rainbow has lit the sky
And my troubles just melt on by
And my troubles just melt on by

UP IN THE BLUE

UP IN THE BLUE 2019

UP IN THE BLUE
I had a good life
And it’s all because of you
Everything you gave me
All the times that you came through
All those around made me who I turned into
So I’m here to say thank you

Thank you for lifting me up
Thank you for all of your hugs
Thank you for giving me
Everything that I needed

Never stop looking up
Cause I will be looking down
Watching over you
I will be around
Up in the blue

To my sisters
I’ll be with you everyday
And all my best friends
I’ll be near in every way
Am Em F G
I’ll be here when you have a heavy heart
I hope you will smile, even though we are apart

Aunties and uncles
And grandparents
You always showed me
How to be my best
Am Em F G
You gave me love and taught me to see
All of the beauty I had within me

Thank you for lifting me up
Thank you for all of your hugs
Thank you for giving me
Everything that I needed

Never stop looking up
Cause I will be looking down
Watching over you
I will be around
Up in the blue

Mom and dad I saved the best for last
Cause you’re the best parents that I could ever have
All those times that you helped me understand
You showed me patience as you sat and held my hand

I never knew I could feel so much love
So I wanna show the same from up above
When times are sad, just look up and you’ll see
I’m smiling back as I loo k at all our memories
And I’m up in the blue
I’m up in the blue and everywhere in between

Never stop looking up
Cause I will be looking down
Watching over you
I will be around
Up in the blue

HAPPY PLACE

HAPPY PLACE 2019

HAPPY PLACE
This year has been hard
As hard as it gets
But you held up your head
When you should've taken rest
So now’s your time
Shed that heavy load
Put it all behind
Let it all go

I’ll take you to your happy place
Down at the beach is where you can stay
As the sun shines and the music plays
In your happy place
Just you and your happy place

You’ve given up
So many pieces of your life
Just one sacrifice
Is not enough in your eyes
So now’s your time
Let the memories flow
I know you'll find
Healing in your soul

I’ll take you to your happy place
Down at the beach is where you can stay
As the sun shines and the music plays
In your happy place
I’ll take you to your happy place
Nothing to do but soak up the rays
All of your worries are fading away
In your happy place
Just you and your happy place

Focus on rebuilding
Parts that you forgot
About yourself and then you'll
Find everything you've lost
Let in all the sunlight
Feel it from inside
Cause now it's your time
To live your only life

I'll take you to your happy place
Down at the beach is where you can stay
As the sun shines and the music plays
In your happy place

You're in your happy place
Nothing to do but soak up the rays
All of your worries are fading away
In your happy place
Let your spirit play
With all your new found grace
In your happy place

YOU ARE LOVED

KEEP ON MOVIN'

FOLLOW MY LEAD

MY LITTLE GIRL

FOLLOW MY LEAD 2018

1. YOU ARE LOVED
Before you got here

We’d dream about you every day

We waited all year

Thinking of all the things we’d say to you

When you come through

Wherever you go
Whatever you wanna do

You need to know

Our love will always find a way to find you

It’ll come through


You are loved, you are loved

Beyond words can say

In every single way

You are loved, you are loved

You’ve made our dreams come true

We love every, every part of you

Loved loved loved loved loved

There are some people

We would’ve liked for you to meet

Though there not here now

They’ll come around when you are counting sheep

In your sleep

And in your bad days

And in those days you need a hug

They’ll be around you,
Just close your eyes and feel the love coming through

We’ll be sending ours too

You are loved, you are loved

Beyond words can say

In every single way

You are loved, you are loved

You’ve made our dreams come true

We love every, every part of you

Loved loved loved loved loved

Just remember one little thing

Wherever life takes you, whatever it brings

We promise to love you forever the same

We will be with you in sun and in rain

You are loved, you are loved

Beyond words can say

In every single way

You are loved, you are loved

You’ve made our dreams come true

We love every, every part of you

Loved loved loved loved loved

2. KEEP ON MOVIN'
Woke up with a flower on my bed
And sunlight fallin’ on my head
The sky is bright and blue
So tell the world that I’m coming through
They see me run with the wind
Bringing light to everything
Nothing can hold me back
I’m on the right track

I’ll reach higher than the stars
Swim farther than the sea
Be all of the things that I want to be
So I’ll keep on moving for me

Slow and steady wins the race
That’s why I go at my own pace
I’ll walk, I’ll crawl, I’ll dance and I’ll fall
I’ll get up and stand tall

I’ll reach higher than the stars
Swim farther than the sea
Be all of the things that I want to be
So I’ll keep on moving for me

I have all of my tomorrows 
Throw out all of my sorrows 
Anyone can follow 
Anyone, and everyone can follow

Keep on moving, keep on moving on x4

I’ll reach higher than the stars
Swim farther than the sea
Be all of the things that I want to be
So I’ll keep on moving for me

Keep on moving, keep on moving on x4
I’ll keep on moving for me


3. FOLLOW MY LEAD
When you met mom some days back then

You fell in love and found your best friend

Decided to marry and raise some kids

I loved our days at the cottage in spring


As years went by, and as we all aged

Our family would laugh in the sun and the rain

Then she fell ill and everything changed

Thank you for lifting me up on those hard days
 


You were there for me

When I was weak and I’d fall to my knees

So now that I can breathe 

I’ll carry you father, take my hand, follow my lead


As we move along, this windy road

Together we’ll navigate life as we go

We’ve been through it all, just you and me
 Father it’s time to lift up our story


We’ll travel the world by country side

Each new adventure it all comes to life

We’ve been through it all, just you and me

So let’s carry each other, take my hand let’s just be free
 


You were there for me

When I was weak and I’d fall to my knees

So now that I can breathe 

I’ll carry you father, take my hand, follow my lead


You were there for me

When I was weak and I’d fall to my knees

So now that I can breathe 

I’ll carry you father, take my hand, follow my lead

4. MY LITTLE GIRL
You’ve grown up now
And you’ve packed your bags
You’re leaving home as I
Stand here so speechless
Cause you’re so beautiful
As you live your dreams
And I want you to know 
You will always be

My little girl
My little my little girl
This is your world
So go explore now
Ba ba, Ba ba, Ba ba da da da

Now you’re older
A woman in your right
You’ll make choices
And I’ll be by your side
If you want me too
I will be here for you
Cause you’re so beautiful
and I want you to know

My little girl
My little my little girl
This is your world
So go explore now
Ba ba, Ba ba, Ba ba da da da

We’ve been through a lot together 
I’m in awe of how you turned out
This year has been so hard
But I know you will bloom
Daughter just don’t bloom too soon

My little girl
My little, my little girl
This is your world
So go explore now
My little girl
My little, my little girl
This is your world
So go explore now
Ba ba, Ba ba, Ba ba da da da

RIPTIDE GIRL

GOODBYE MY SWEETHEART

OUT OF THE BLUE

DEAR DAUGHTER

GROWING OLD WITH YOU

ALL THE FEELS

OPEN SEA

OPEN SEA 2017

1. I'LL LET YOU GO
The day has come, to let you go 
Only happiness, I will show
I'll always be here for you, you know   
Nothing takes away my love and it shows

You've grown up now, things have changed
Grew some wings now, you're flying away
I'll always be here for you, you know
Nothing takes away my love and it shows
Yeah nothing takes away my love
When I let you go

‘Cause you're my baby
Always will be
I hope you know                            
My love stays when you go

Some years down, the long long road
If you need help, with your load
I'll always be here for you, you know 
Nothing takes away my love and it shows     
Yeah nothing takes away my love
When I let you go

‘Cause you're my baby
Always will be
I hope you know                            
My love stays when you go

‘Cause you're my baby
Always will be
I hope you know                            
My love stays when you go

I’ll let you go 
I’ll let you go

Cause you’re my baby
Always will be
I hope you know
My love stays when you go

2. MAKE IT
Ain’t nobody gonna bring me down
I will not fight but I will get loud
I’m not afraid to make a sound
Cause in your knit I might not fit
But I am fine with it
Home is home where I belong
If you have a problem you can move along
I’m born to fly where I come from
Even if I’m not perfect
I am fine with it

Cause I go ouuu ouuu ou ou
Gotta be true to myself
Ouuu ouuu ou ou
Don’t wanna be somebody else
Ouuu ouuu ou ou     
And when the world explodes
At least I will know, I can make it on my own
I, I can make it make it        
I, I can make it make it

Days and days go out the door
I’ve said some things and learned some more
Like what in the world are we living for
To grow up and to spread our wings
To fly and just be free
So don’t forget just who you are
You’ve already come so far
Flyin’ faster than the shooting stars
Even though you’re born different
Just be proud of it

Cause I go ouuu ouuu ou ou
Gotta be true to myself
Ouuu ouuu ou ou
Don’t wanna be somebody else
Ouuu ouuu ou ou     
And when the world explodes
At least I will know

Cause I go ouuu ouuu ou ou
Gotta be true to myself
Ouuu ouuu ou ou
Don’t wanna be somebody else
Ouuu ouuu ou ou     
And when the world explodes
At least I will know, I can make it on my own
I, I can make it make it   x4    
I can make it on my own   

3. WATER
All I want is the water, all I want is the sea
To feel that sunshine, that warm ocean breeze
I know life is good, with a routine
But sometimes I need, somewhere to be free

I will search until I find 
Somewhere to calm my mind
And feel all the good vibes, inside
Wash with the water, wash in the sea
Live by the water, live to be free
Heal with the water
Just feel the peace
Let your mind wander
And let it all be

This earth is a privilege, that some may not know
Don’t take it for granted, cause we reap what we sow
We are so blessed, to have what we have
Share good intentions, and it’ll all come back

I will search until I find 
Somewhere to calm my mind
And feel all the good vibes, inside
Wash with the water, wash in the sea
Live by the water, live to be free
Heal with the water
Just feel the peace
Let your mind wander
And let it all be

All I want is the water
All I want is the sea
To feel that sunshine
Somewhere to be free

Wash with the water, wash in the sea
Live by the water, live to be free
Heal with the water
Just find the peace
Let your mind wander
And let it all be
Let your mind wander
And let it all be

4.  RIPTIDE GIRL
When the riptide pulls you under
Just keep swimming in the sea
You are strong my precious daughter
Don’t think for a minute I would leave

When the world is on your shoulders
Oceans ahead and in between
Just keep your head above the water
Even in the times you cannot see 

You are brave, you are brave
And you’ll always be ok
This you know, you are brave 
Tell the world to make way

I’ll be here, I’ll be here     
When the current brings you fear
Hope you know, I’ll be here 
Watching over you my dear

Da da da, da da da, da da da my riptide girl
Da da da, da da da, da da da 
Da da da, da da da, da da da my riptide girl
Da da da, da da da, da da da

Ouuuu ouuu ouuuuu ouuuu

I’ve not seen courage quite like you have
Always jumping in the deep
Just keep on swimmin’ in the mystic
Even in the times that you feel weak

You are brave, you are brave
And you’ll always be ok
This you know, you are brave 
Tell the world to make way

I’ll be here, I’ll be here     
When the current brings you fear
Hope you know, I’ll be here 
Watching over you my dear
Da da da, da da da, da da da my riptide girl
Da da da, da da da, da da da 
Da da da, da da da, da da da my riptide girl
Da da da, da da da, da da da

You are brave, you are brave
And you’ll always be ok
This you know, you are brave 
Tell the world to make way

I’ll be here, I’ll be here     
When the current brings you fear
Hope you know, I’ll be here 
Watching over you my dear

5. GOODBYE MY SWEETHEART
Goodbye my sweetheart

The rest of my years
Goodbye my sweetheart
Goodbye my love

You’re forever in my heart

Cause there are some things you need to know
There were so many times I held in all my love
I was afraid and now it’s too late
Cause my love is here stay, mmmm
As you walk away

It’s been hard for me
To speak the truth
And just be honest
When I’m with you
So now I sing it out
I hope you know
You mean the world to me
But I never let it show

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
I have words to say before you go
Cause there are some things you need to know
There were so many times I held in all my love
I was afraid and now it’s too late
Cause my love is here stay, mmmm
As you walk away

Goodbye my sweetheart
Goodbye my love
No one will replace you
You’re forever in my heart



6.  OUT OF THE BLUE
I never thought that I would find you
All the years were passin’ on through
Even though l wanted, true love
My happy ending was in doubt
I thought my time had run out
I didn’t know how it felt to be loved

Then one day, you came out of the blue
It was then that I knew
We would be two, just me and you
Me and you, now together like ouu ouu ouu
Feel the love comin' through
Right out of the blue
Out of the blue
You came out of the blue, and I love you I do

We have a gift, a beautiful romance
And I love the way it happened
Eloping in Vegas, me in my white dress
It is never too late, for a new chapter 
For love ever after
New adventures and laughter 
mmmmmm

Then one day, you came out of the blue
It was then that I knew
We would be two, just me and you
Me and you, now together like ouu ouu ouu
Feel the love comin' through
Right out of the blue
Out of the blue
You came out of the blue, and I love you I do

Finally the universe aligned
After all this time
I hope we never have to be apart 
But if we do you’re in my heart

Then one day, you came out of the blue
It was then that I knew
We would be two, just me and you
Me and you, now together like ouu ouu ouu
Feel the love comin' through
Right out of the blue

Ouu ouu ouu, ou ou ou ou ouu ouu ouu
Ou ou ou ou ouu ouu ouu
Ouu ouu ouu

Then one day you came out of the blue
It was then that I knew, it’s just me and you

7. DEAR DAUGHTER
Dear daughter
I wish time would last with you forever
But I know life changes, you’ll grow older
Spread your wings out into the real world

My girl, I wish I could show you what you mean to me
I need you to know how proud I am to be
Be the one to witness all your dreams

Go out live your life
And I’ll be here waiting
Go out live your life
Just keep your heart beating
No matter how far in distance where you are
Go out live your life my dear
And I’ll be here with open arms

When you were young I could watch you all day
I’d be amazed with the wonder in your face
New discoveries and new mistakes
And the way you were never afraid

Now you’re older and you’ve moved away
And you understand why sometimes I pulled the reigns
You can always come home when you need to stay
Cause you’re my everything and that will never change

Go out live your life
And I’ll be here waiting
Go out live your life
Just keep your heart beating
No matter how far in distance where you are
Go out live your life my dear
And I’ll be here with open arms

Go out live your life and I’ll be here waiting
Go out live your life just keep your heart beating
Go out live your life and I’ll be here waiting
Go out live your life just keep your heart beating
Go out live your life and I’ll be here waiting
Go out live your life my dear and I’ll be here with open arms



8.  GROWING OLD WITH YOU 
Every day it’s my hand that you take
In the morning as we wake
And all the love that we create
Every day it’s just you and me
In our bed under the trees
Dreaming of all the things to be

It’s you I adore
The world is so much more
When my hand is in yours
I wanna grow old with youuuuu
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna grow old with youuuuu
I wanna grow old with you

Every night I look up at the sky
It’s a starlight paradise 
When you’re by my side
Every night you make me feel alive
Under the trees you hold me tight
So much light in your eyes

It’s you I adore
The world is so much more
When my hand is in yours
I wanna grow old with youuuuu
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna grow old with youuuuu
I wanna grow old with you

I love going old with you baby

9. ALL THE FEELS
If only life were easy
We could have it all
Wake up with the sunrise
Or feel the rainfall
But life is never easy
No not even close
But you don’t gotta worry
Just let the wind blow

So it goes
The book of life is written we know
It’s up and down and all around
With hidden lessons to be found
So take it slow
Ouuuuuu

Feel all of the feels all of the time
Speak all of the things on your mind
Don’t leave any words behind
Feel all of the feels all of the time
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Mmmm mm mmm mmmm

When you’re feeling down down
Like you’re not enough
Call a friend right over
And let them lift you up
Let go of all the sadness 
Don’t you push it down
That’s the way to healing
The way to get it out

So it goes
The book of life is written we know
It’s up and down and all around
With hidden lessons to be found
So take it slow
Ouuuuuu

Feel all of the feels all of the time
Speak all of the things on your mind
Don’t leave any words behind
Feel all of the feels all of the time
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Mmmm


10. OPEN SEA
You‘re another year older
And little bit brighter
Your mind keeps pushin’ on
And your heart is staying strong
Today flew by fast 
And that yesterday that already passed
I’m so proud to be your daughter
And I’ll sit by you ’til your final days

When you leave your soul will stay
It never goes away
Like a shipwreck in the sea
Holding our memories
When you leave your soul will stay
It never goes away
In my heart you’ll always be
Everything to me
Like the moments in our past memories
I’ll hold them close to me

I thank you for the lessons
All those times that you have taught me
To be kind and always listen
To live with grace, wholeheartedly
And I’ll always take you with me
A main part of my being
So never cry and never fear
In my heart you’re always here

When you leave your soul will stay
It never goes away
Like a shipwreck in the sea
Holding our memories
When you leave your soul will stay
It never goes away
In my heart you’ll always be
Everything to me
Like the moments in our past memories
I’ll hold them close to me
ahhhhh I’ll hold our memories
mmmm

LOVE PARADE

LOVE PARADE 2014

LOVE PARADE
One more year is gone
Like a bird it flew
You still make me feel like I belong
Right here next to you
When you said

Ouu ouu, I’m in love with you
I said don’t worry, I love you too
I’ll be your sun if you be my moon
We’ll light this city
With our love parade

Show me your world
And I’ll show you mine
We’ll show the people
We’ve nothing to hide
Swimming through oceans and mountains to climb
And I’ll be next to you
When you said

Ouu ouu, I’m in love with you
I said don’t worry, I love you too
I’ll be your sun if you be my moon
We’ll light this city
With our love parade

One rainy day in spring
You gave me a flower and a ring
Told me that I would make you complete
If you’d marry me
So I gave you my hand
And I gave you my heart
You spun me around and around and around and we
Danced all day in the rain fall

Ouu ouu, I’m in love with you
I said don’t worry, I love you too
I’ll be your sun if you be my moon
We’ll light this city
With our love
Ouu ouu, I’m in love with you
I said don’t worry, I love you too
I’ll be your sun if you be my moon
We’ll light this city
With our love parade
With our love parade
Mmmm mmm mm

DANCING IN THE GREAT DIVINE

AN OLD LOVE SONG

KING OF THE LAND

APPLE OF MY EYE 2012

1. LET MY HEART OUT
Time stopped today 
And it will stay for as long as I need it to stay
Yes time is on my side
Until I am back on my two feet again
Now I am walking, down the street
As my feet brush the fallen leaves
Everything is so still and beautiful
In serenity, in serenity

So I can let my heart out
Let it shape my soul
Let it build my hopes and my dreams
Oh I can let my heart out
Let my whole heart out
In this world where time is not a worry

Everything is silent around me
Except the kiss of the earths melody
And the people who don’t know that life is worth 
More than gold and materials, and materials

So I can let my heart out
Let it shape my soul
Let it build my hopes and my dreams
Oh I can let my heart out
Let my whole heart out
In this world where time is not a worry

La da da da da da da 
Da da da da dum
Da da da da dum

Then I took the abandoned road
And it led me to a garden of stone
Then it filled with beautiful roses
So untouched in a world always in motion

We’re always in motion
Da da da da da da da da
We gotta take it slow


2. APPLE OF MY EYE
When a storm comes in 
I’m a shelter from the wind
I will be the one to let you in
I will hold you tight
Like a ninja in the night
I’ll protect you from this fright, yes I will

Cause like a fruit in a tree you’re the apple of my eye
You’re the apple of my eye, you are
And like a rose in the wild, you’re the thorn stuck in my heart
You’re the thorn stuck in my heart, you are

And when the world turns black
I’m a diamond in the sky
I will be the one to save your life
I will sweep you up 
Like a ninja in the night
I will show you to the light, yes I will

Cause like a fruit in a tree you’re the apple of my eye
You’re the apple of my eye, you are
And like a rose in the wild, you’re the thorn stuck in my heart
You’re the thorn stuck in my heart, you are

Oh like my milk and honey
You are the one for me
You are the one for me yes you are
And like the children in the park
You are stealing my heart
You are stealing my heart 
You are

Lets run away
To our hiding place
Where we can disappear 
I promise I will hold you near
You’re the apple of my eye
You're the apple of my eye
La da da da da da da da da da da 
La da da da da da da da da da da
Ouuuuuuu

3. UGLY DUCKLING
I once knew a boy
With Just a few friends
People said he was too thin
His hair too long, glasses to thick, 
His socks to high, his feet to big,
And everything he did was so perfect to me

They call him the ugly duckling
He’s my ugly duckling
Why would they say such a thing 
When they don’t even know what they’re missing
My little son you’re the best thing to me

Well this boy never had a care in the world
He woke up with a smile on his face all day
He would laugh and play
Until it was bed time
He would dream of the sunshine
He would never whine
And he’s all mine

They call him the ugly duckling
He’s my ugly duckling
Why would they say such a thing 
When they don’t even know what they’re missing
My little son you’re the best thing to me

And the day came 
when he started to believe what they were saying
I told him it was all in their heads
I said I’m so sorry don’t you worry be happy
Their sad themselves so they take it out on everybody else

They call him the ugly duckling
He’s my ugly duckling
Why would they say such a thing 
When they don’t even know what they’re missing

They call him the ugly duckling
He’s my ugly duckling
Why would they say such a thing 
When they don’t even know what they’re missing
My little son you’re the best thing to me

They call him the ugly duckling
He’s my ugly duckling
Why would they say such a thing 
When they don’t even know what they’re missing
My little son you’re the best thing to me

4.  GOODMORNING SUN
A ray of light is beaming
In my eyes and your eyes
Are opening so slow, in the morning so bright
It’s coming so quickly now
The sun is rising through the clouds
Your heartbeat is matching the sound of mine

The sun is rising
Trees are growing
Yellow light is shining
On you and me
Goodmorning Sun
Goodmorning Sun

My day passes by so slow
when you’re gone and I’m gone
Time wanders like a ghost
It lingers so calm
When the clouds hide the light
It feels just like the night
When you can be by my side 
When you can be by my side

The sun is rising
Trees are growing
Yellow light is shining
On you and me
Goodmorning Sun
Goodmorning Sun

I can’t wait until this day comes to an end
The night will come and I will see you again
Love, it won’t be too long
Oh it won’t be too long

The sun is resting
Trees are sleeping
The moonlight is shining
On you and me
The day is gone
Dusk has begun
Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun

5. MUSIC MAKES THE WORLD GO 'ROUND

6.  LITTLE LOVE
I met you yesterday
And my world faded away
All I see is white sky
Just you and I
Just you and I
On our own
All alone
In a hut of sticks and stones
Playing house
Like we should
But I never ever thought I could

Cause I wasn’t waiting for you
To come to my rescue
I wanted to do it on my own
But now we’ve got a house
And we’ve got nobody else 
So now, what do we do
My little love, what do we do
I’m so confused

La la la, la la la la la la la
La la la, la la la, la la la la la la la

There’s an ending to every story
One can be sad and one can be happy
So which of those will be for us
Oh which of those can we trust

Cause I wasn’t waiting for you
To come to my rescue
I wanted to do it on my own
But now we’ve got a house
And we’ve got nobody else 
So now, what do we do
My little love, what do we do
My little love what do we do
My little love, what do we do
My little love, what do we do
My little love, what do we do
I’ll see you soon

7. AWAY WE GO
I spent my time here
Watching dust turn into love
Saw my heart here
We grew together and rose above

We were strangers
You were shy quiet and humble
As time wore on we learned from each other
And love started to grow

Away away away I go and away away you go
Like a song we can sing, carried by the wind
Away we’re going home

I built a castle
Cause my family you’ve become
You opened up and gave your soul
You’re heart is made of gold

Away away away I go and away away you go
Like a song we can sing, carried by the wind
Away we’re going home

I’ll take with me everything you believe
And I’ll pour it into someone new
We’ll accept one another, whatever the colour
And I’ll never forget what you gave
Ouuu
Ouuu


8.  DANCING IN THE GREAT DIVINE
She is delicate
But she doesn’t mind a bit
She shimmers in my eyes
Like war in a lovers sky 
A storm rolls in
And she’s struck from within

The ocean is calling her name
And I wonder if I will see her again
Cause she’s dancing, swimming underneath
In the garden, in the garden of the deep blue sea
Ah ah, ah ah

Not a cloud in the sky
Only silence in my mind
I’m waiting for a sign
Deep in the great divine

A storm rolls in
And I’m struck from within
The ocean is calling my name
And I wonder if I’ll be here again, if I’ll be here again
Cause I’m dancing, swimming underneath
In the garden, in the garden of the deep blue sea
Ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah

Cause we’re dancing, swimming underneath
In the garden, in the garden of the deep blue sea

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah

9. AN OLD LOVE SONG
Flowers in my hair
A love song in the air
You’ve been gone all day
But I’m still here
So I’ll wait for you
And you’re blue suede shoes
Counting the hours
Singing the blues

Butterflies fly
Birds sing in the sky
You are the apple of my eye
As I make my way
Up to the house
I know that everything will be ok

I take a walk through the past
You are all I see
Like the days when we were young
Everyday we fall in love
Mmmmm, mmmmm

Warm sunrays
It’s the end of the day
When the dogs call I know your home
Now we’re dancing in the orchard thinking of the ways
Ways to let me stay
Oh don’t let me walk away

Mmmm mmmmmm



10. KING OF THE LAND
I walked away from you, time after time
But I always knew, that you’d always be mine
It wasn’t the right time, we had our own plans
But now I’m here, and we’re holding hands

Cause you are my man
The king of the land
And I’ll be your queen
I’ll be your everything
Cause nobody has me like you do
This I can promise you
Yeah nobody has me like you do
This I can promise you

Today I walk the aisle
With roses in my hand
Feels like I’ve walked for miles and miles
And for you I can
Then we’ll build a house
Next will come our child
So let’s promise our vows
Starting from now

Cause you are my man
The king of the land
And I’ll be your queen
I’ll be your everything
Cause nobody has me like you do
This I can promise you
Yeah nobody has me like you do
This I can promise you
Ah Ah Ah, Ah Ah Ah
Ah Ah Ah, Ah Ah Ah

It was worth all the wait
To start our lives that day
Cause now we’re old and grey
Happier every day
Mmmmm, Mmmmmmmmm

1. ABCs
ABCD
the alphabet has been running from me
Just like you, and all of the silly things that you do
EFGH go away
I don't wanna see your face
You left me for another girl 300 times or more
You make me wanna fight
You make me wanna cry
You make me wanna die
You make me wanna scream go outside
You make me wanna love you
You make my wanna love
Oh, oh what a waste
It's three whole years that can't be replaced
Oh, oh it's not even the end
It'll last til this world crashes in
HIJKLMNOP
How could you ever bring that around me
QRSTUV mee
The person you love the most
The person you trust the most
The person you hurt the most
Hurt the most
You make me wanna fight
You make me wanna cry
You make me wanna die
You make me wanna love you
Oh, oh what a waste, it's three whole years that can't be replaced
Oh, oh it's not even the end
It'll last til this world crashes in x 3
WX remember that you my dear are next
Y and Z my abc's are complete
Oh, oh what a waste
It's three whole years that can't be replaced
Oh, oh it's not even the end
It'll last til this world crashes in

2. BILL
My magic blueberry tea
Is melting in consistency
Swirls of blue, white and green
As the dry air beats the chocolate drum

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum ba dum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum

Thin black roots full of salt and roots
She's a mute and only plays the flute
And the chocolate drum

Bum Bum Bum Bum bum bum bum bum bum ba dum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum

Baking soda lives on the table
Waiting patiently to be saved
From this cruel cruel life
We all live in a cruel life

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum ba dum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum

Pieces of bamboo cover this room
Along with a dead ivy on the sill
I named him Bill
he likes the chocolate drum

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum ba dum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum

3. STAY THE NIGHT
It's been too long
Since I've seen that pretty face
It's been too long
Since we've had our sweet embrace
That smile, those eyes
Can I call them mine
Won't you come home with me

And hold me tight
And watch the stars paint the sky
Tell me you love me, tell me you need me
Tell me you will stay the night

You're finally here with me now
Let me show you around
Some things have changed
We've come together somehow
Your love, our love
It's more than enough
With our kisses and our hugs
Finally back home with me

So hold me tight
And watch the stars paint the sky
Tell me you love me, tell me you need me
Tell me you will stay the night
Hold me tight
And watch the stars paint the sky
Tell me tell me tell me you love me, you need me
That you will stay the night
Tell me you'll stay longer than a night
Stay forever
Won't you stay forever

4. CHANGE THE WORLD
The rain is pouring down on me
And the sun is shaded by the trees
And the world is spinning at my feet
And I am wondering, what will
Remain of this little life I am living
Is there hope and love that I will bring
I've seen too many bad, bad things
I wanna change

I wanna change the world
I wanna change the world
I wanna change the world
I wanna change it
I wanna change it, oh

Don't just look at me
With those eyes, so pretty
I know exactly what you are thinking
You want the same as I do
You want there to be peace on the news
So join hands join hands
And give you heart
To someone who needs a mend
We're all in this life together
We're all in this life together

Change the world
We're gonna change the world
Change the world
We're gonna change it
We're gonna change it

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
And when the stars
Are hiding in the sky
Remember to think of your new life
And a rose will blossom soon

Change the world x 8
It's time for me to spread my peace with the world
To share my joy, my heart and love with the world
To inspire and transpire the words of Gandhi
To be the change that I wanna see in the world
