Track Name: Sometimes
Got a feeling in my head today
Something's wrong
Something could be wrong

People talking on the radio
But I don't hear
I'm not listening

Half the time it never bothers me
I play along
But that's another song

This is the way it goes sometimes
This is the way it goes sometimes

In the quiet of the afternoon
Hide away
Nothing much to say

Somewhere underneath the atmosphere
In a dream
But it's not what it seems

This is the way it goes sometimes
This is the way it goes sometimes
This is the way it goes sometimes

In the night it all comes back to me
Through other eyes
I just don't recognise

This is the way it goes sometimes
This is the way it goes sometimes
This is the way it goes sometimes
Track Name: New Horizon
Don't you know
That there's a new horizon over there?
Something in the air
In all that's changed

Everywhere
The bitter seeds of life are in the ground
Growing all around
Time to rearrange

Keep it real
You never have to take it all too far
Remember who you are
And all you've got

Seems to me
You always have to be the one to blame
It's always been the same
Don't pretend it's not

So it goes
The lesser disenchanted take their place
In a crowded space
But you want more

It's up to you
The chance is there, it may not be your last
Things are moving fast
Walk towards the door
Track Name: Hard To Believe
You'll never know
How close you came to getting through
You never knew
The way it would come back at you
Hard to believe
That you would ever let it go
Hard to believe
That you could ever sink so low

And now the stories are out and there's nowhere to go but down
And now the stories are out and there's nowhere to go but down

All of the time
You thought you were a superstar
All of the time
You played us for the fools we are
Hard to believe
That anyone defended you
Hard to believe
That anyone depended on you

And now the stories are out and there's nowhere to go but down
And now the stories are out and there's nowhere to go but down
And now the stories are out and there's nowhere to go but down
And now the stories are out and there's nowhere to go
Nowhere to go but down, down, down
Down, down, down

Hard to believe
That you would ever let it go
Track Name: Outside
You went outside
Found a place to hide
It's cold out there
But you never care
Not enough

You're making plans
For your idle hands
No big idea
Just disappear
It's not enough

If ever you find a way to get out of here today
I want you to know
If ever you find a way to get out of here today
Just tell me and I will go

You went outside
Found a place to hide
From modern ways
And desperate days

If ever you find a way to get out of here today
I want you to know
If ever you find a way to get out of here today
Just tell me and I will go

If ever you find a way
If ever you find a way
If ever you find a way
If ever you find a way

To find a place to hide
Track Name: Indian Summer
See how it glows
See how it gleams
Just when it seems that the world looks good like never before

Nothing denied
Nothing concealed
All is surreal but for just how long you can never be sure

Cover your skin
Cover your eyes
Look to the sky just to keep your fears from running away

Be on your toes
Be on your guard
Sometimes it's hard just to keep believing that it's here to stay

I wish the sun would never end
In our days
I wish the sun would never end
In our days

Time has run out
Time to retreat
Stuck in the heat of a long-gone summer with a chill in the air

Turning to leave
Turning to stone
Out on your own with a jukebox hanging on a wing and a prayer

I wish the sun would never end
In our days
I wish the sun would never end
In our days
I wish the sun would never end
In our days
I wish the sun would never end
In our days

I wish the sun would never end
In our days
I wish the sun would never end
In our days
I wish the sun would never end
In our days
I wish the sun would never end
In our days

I wish the sun would never end
I wish the sun would never end

I feel clouds moving closer..closer
I feel clouds moving closer..closer
Track Name: Four Minutes
I'm not asking for a lifetime commitment
I'm not looking for a long-term deal
I don't need for you to lay down your money
It's not a charity or an appeal

It's just four minutes of your life that you won't get back
Four minutes of your life
But you might find something that you lack

I don't do this for the recognition
I'm not looking for a new career
It's not meant to be a revolution
Just a song that you might want to hear

It's just four minutes of your life that you won't get back
Four minutes of your life
But you might find something that you lack
Four minutes of your life that you won't get back
Four minutes of your life
But you might just hear the thunder crack

Is it asking far too much of you today?
Should I worry that nobody wants to hear the things I say?

Four minutes of your life that you won't get back
Four minutes of your life
But you might find something that you lack
Four minutes of your life that you won't get back
Four minutes of your life
But you might just hear the thunder crack
Track Name: Photograph
It happened a very long time ago, it seems
Each day of our lives exists between extremes
The memory stares out of the page at me
We're gonna revisit that photograph
We're gonna revisit that photograph

Through the sun and the rain
I will see you again
And the lies that we told
Won't matter at all

A window into another time and place
A picture of youth that years will not deface
Why wonder how everything has moved apace?
We're gonna revisit that photograph
We're gonna revisit that photograph

Through the sun and the rain
I will see you again
In the blink of an eye
As the hours go by
Through the sun and the rain
I will see you again
And the lies that we told
Well, they just won't matter at all

Who knows all the mysteries within the frame?
How much of this distant land could we reclaim?
Why wonder if things could ever be the same?
We're gonna revisit that photograph
We're gonna revisit that photograph

Through the sun and the rain
I will see you again
In the blink of an eye
As the hours go by
Through the sun and the rain
I will see you again
And the lies that we told
Well, they just won't matter at all
Track Name: I Call Your Name
I call your name but you never come
I look away from the things that we've done

I see you standing on higher ground
I think of all of the things that you've found

Take all you want from life
Take all you want from life
As time is on your side
Whatever you do
Enjoy the ride

Behind the eyes there's a world to be seen
Inside the mind every place that you've been

Take all you want from life
Take all you want from life
As time is on your side
Whatever you do
Enjoy the ride
Enjoy the ride
Enjoy the ride
Track Name: Looking For The Same Thing
I'm not really sure
Are you looking for the same thing?
That you had before
Are you looking for the same thing?
Come and tell me more
Are you looking for the same thing?

And did you ever think it would come again?
And did you ever stop to wonder when?
But if your well is running dry
Take a look up in the sky
Here comes the rain

I'm not really sure
Are you looking for the same thing?
That you had before
Are you looking for the same thing?

It only ever hits when it comes around
Hard enough to lift you from the ground
But it's a temporary state
Be resigned to your fate
It's got you bound

I'm not really sure
Are you looking for the same thing?
That you had before
Are you looking for the same thing?
Come and tell me more
Are you looking for the same thing?

But maybe there are better things ahead
Look around for something else instead
Through the pleasure and the pain
All the fears you can't explain remain unsaid
Track Name: Please You
I don't mind if you don't see
The things in life that I won't be
Cos everything I do isn't just to please you

And I won't cry, it makes no sense
Would only make a difference
If everything I did was just to please you

And I don't know what I've done wrong
But I've been wary all along
Slow down
Speed up
Speak for yourself
It's all the same to me

I don't mind if you don't see
The things in life that I won't be
Not everything I do is just to please you

And I don't care if you're not here
It only helps to make it clear
That everything I do isn't just to please you
Please you

And I don't know where I'm allowed
I never stand out from the crowd
Stand up
Sit down
But in the end
I'll let my heart run free

I don't mind if you don't see
The things in life that I won't be
Cos everything I do isn't just to please you

And it won't make me feel afraid
If I don't ever make the grade
Not everything I do is just to please you
Please you

But is it just the same for you?
And do you have these feelings too?
There's only one way out of this place
So let your heart run free

I don't mind if you don't see
The things in life that I won't be
Cos everything I do isn't just to please you

And I don't care if you're not here
It only helps to make it clear
That everything I do isn't just to please you

Of all the things I mean to say
You've only heard a few today
Not everything we do is just to please you

Please yourself
