Track Name: Into the Dawn
Taking the time, to find the place where I came from
The alleys and the highways, the fields where I would run
The schoolyards and the playgrounds, the town I used to know
But the streets don’t recognise me, the house don’t know my name

So I forget this town, and wander on into the dawn
Forget my past and wander on into the dawn

Heading for home, I got new ideas on my mind
Things I wanna capture, things I wanna find
Somewhere in the future there’s a place that waits for me

So I forget this town, and wander on into the dawn
Forget my past and wander on into the dawn

If you go back, go back, it’s so strange
You’ll find nothing, no-one is the same
You’ll find something, somehow will have changed
- And maybe it’s you
Track Name: Talk About It
Wish I knew, what to say to you,
When you smile at me
I can tell, you’ve got things going on,
Aching silently

All you gotta do is talk about it
Find somebody who is on your side
Do you ever wanna talk about it?
Just a victim of your stupid pride.
Wo-oh, you conceal
Wo-oh, how you feel
Wo-oh, you’re not so alone

After all, you are loved so much,
And you know that’s true
Open up, let the inside out,
I got time for you

All you gotta do is talk about it
You’re not the only one who ever cried
If you never wanna talk about it
Then you gotta keep it all inside

Wo-oh…..
Track Name: Bright Clasp
Bright Clasp of her whole hand around my finger
My daughter as we walk together now
All my life I'll feel a ring invisibly
Circle this bone with shining
When she is grown, far from today
As her eyes are far already
Track Name: Back in Time
It's been so long since I saw you
But I think I've found a way
A way to see you smile again
And hold you in my arms

I found a way to travel back in time
And no-one will believe me, but it's true
I find your photograph and hold it tight
I close my eyes, and simply wish for you

And suddenly I'm back in time
I'm there with you, and sunlight in my eyes
I wanna watch those birds with you
The silhouettes and shadows in the trees
I wanna climb those hills with you
And reach the top, and lay down on the ground

The things we always loved to do
Are playing on my mind
Like dreams they're spinning round and around
I see them all the time

Though time and tide will never wait for me
My time machine will sail a course so true
I take a page out of my diary
I close my eyes, and simply think of you

And suddenly I'm back in time
To be with you, and walk with you again
I wanna watch those skies with you
And see the stars, shining down on you
I wanna dance one more time with you
And see you smile, and hold you in my arms
Track Name: Break Free
You took my life and you took my time with your lying
And you led me on with your promises, kept me trying
You put your guilt on me
From Day One lied to me
I was taken in

Break Free

You filled my head with your made-up world of illusion
And you took control of my pleasure with your delusion
You gave me love with one hand
The other threatened me,
And I see through you now

Break Free
Track Name: Platform 16
Run high and low, And the rails go on forever
Above, below, They will lead us back together

I’ll see you tomorrow, if you come to me
I’ll see you tomorrow, on Platform 16

This time will pass, I remember how I met you
Sand in the glass, Falling down, I won’t forget you

I’ll see you tomorrow, so patiently
I’ll see you tomorrow, on Platform 16

Hey – all the places that you will pass on the way
Hey – all those people that you might meet on your way

I’ll see you tomorrow, if you come to me
I’ll see you tomorrow, on Platform 16
Track Name: In Marseille
There's a street I know, it's in Marseille
The Old Port is near,
Rue de la Paix
Where we both would meet
To drink café
And I think of you
Still in Marseille
Track Name: Temptress
You’re my temptation; it's time that you knew
You're drivin me cra-zy I’m achin for you
I gotta hold you.... and feel your smooth skin
You make my heart race - my head's in a spin

So hot, yeah, you're always so damn hot

You're the most sexy thing on Earth
Your curves are more than I deserve
You know I like what I observe

Each time I see you, my heart is on fire
You do your thing and I'm filled with desire
Come over here and we'll dance to the beat
Let's fan the flames and we'll both feel the heat

So hot, yeah, you're always so damn hot

You're the most sexy thing on Earth
Your curves are more than I deserve, it's too much
You know I like what I observe

You are a temptress; it's time that you knew
You're drivin me cra-zy I’m achin for you
I gotta hold you.... and feel your smooth skin
You make my heart race - my head's in a spin
Track Name: Centuries
You open your eyes
And see, here we are
Just look where we started,
We’ve all come so far

But all of the labours
The tears and their pain
We take them for granted
Forget their names
Seems a shame…

The millions of centuries of this world
And all of the wonders
The things we have learned
And now the delusions drag us back to the dark age

Centuries
Thoughts and Deeds
Centuries

They say that in each town
A torch of truth shines
The teacher will bear it
And brighten our minds

But here comes a priest now
To blow out the light
He’s back in the darkness
With fables and lies
And reason cries

In all of the centuries as we grow
The lessons are hard, But soon we will know
That only Art, Science, Love and Reason
Have meaning

Centuries
Thoughts and Deeds
Centuries
