Track Name: On The Hill
free in the weather when the sun is high
run through the forest with the grass knee high
all and forever in the month of may
now where together and we're on our way

on the hill we can laugh a lot and we can
turn our lives to the sunlight and be alright

free in the weather when the sun is high
born in a body with a dream to fly
out on the ocean when the waves are rough
come one a journey when you've had enough

on the hill we can laugh a lot and we can
turn our lives to the sunlight and be alright
Track Name: Don't Wait In The Dark
take another breath for a minute more
we can dive in the ocean
sun is high and the wind is strong
we can float away to the sun

just don't wait in the dark
just don't wait in the dark

eat the apple from the tree of life
it will take you back to your home
sit in silence with an open mind
we can travel back in time

just don't wait in the dark
just don't wait in the dark
Track Name: Angel In Disguise
you need that space to grow
there are ties that hold you down
and there's a world beyond that town
freedom's all i know
it starts when you let go
but the hardest part is when you take that flight
and to you it all feels right

you're more than meets the eye
you're an angel in disguise
you were born with wings to fly
i can't wait until you try

if you believe it then it's true
they take the rest from you
i can see it in your eyes
that you're dreaming far and wide
this is not the end you'll see
it's just the start for you and me
we were born as two but forever one
it's a love that keeps us strong

you're more than meets the eye
you're an angel in disguise
you were born with wings to fly
i can't wait until you try
Track Name: On The Rise
sun i can see you on the rise
half awake i lay and wonder why
peace and wholeness on my mind
solved answers i thought i never find

world i can feel you on the rise
open your mind, you'll start to feel alive
never has there been a time
any place i can go there with my mind

from now i see this world
from now i see it all with a new light

love i can feel it on the rise
high on a cloud the one called number nine
lost are the worries of the night
fledgling bird now ready for the flight

from now i see this world
from now i see it all with a new light

love can you feel it on the rise
any place we can go there with our minds.
Track Name: Out On The Island
This is a break out.
Trying to find my way
While people run in circles for no reason
Trying to make things right
While you decide what's new and what's forsaken
Your love's not for sale
I'll have to go and steal it from the others
When will this get old
Or will we lives our lives like lonely soldiers

Out on the island
Down in a town
This is a call out.

You're running like a fool
Be careful not to lose yourself in others
Step out of the dark
The light will steer your mind and guide your interest
We could always travel far
The limit is our own imagination
Well try and find our way
While people run in circles for no reason.
This was a break out
This was a call out.
Track Name: In My Mind With You
in the heart of the night i would cry
for the one who was there by my side
all i can do is listen and laugh it reminds me of everything thats you
i go and i feel i'm alive
running the streets with my head held high
all i know is where i've been
i don't know the next place that i'll i see
i'm running, i'm running and i'll run
to the places i've dreamed in my mind
all this time i'm feeling like flying
i know some day i will find

that place in my mind with you
to that place in my mind with you
to that place in my mind with you i know
someday i will find

the tea is now getting cold
but as lovers we'll never get old
in the laughter of sin they're all running on back
it's where you and i start to begin
i will see i will see i will see
when the world brings you right back to me
it's what guides me to love and what drives me to live
is still growing and hiding within

that place in my mind with you
to that place in my mind with you
to that place in my mind with you i know
someday i will find

while the sun beats down with a glow
your mornings are filling with snow
from the deepest of sea and the angel that day
i now wish that i only did say.
i love you i love you i do.
i'll be there till the end you know true
i love your ways and all your mistakes
and the pictures we made in the sand

that place in my mind with you
to that place in my mind with you
to that place in my mind with you i know
someday i will find
Track Name: Same Old Town
living in the same old town
everyone knows your everything
your feeling this place is smaller
but you've just grown to see it shrink
walking that same old road
trees higher than before
colours down seem as bright now
shop fronts closed and hollowed out.

love let it guide you on your way
love let it guide you home

living in the same old town
why do you let it get you down
the simply life can't please you
you rest your dreams in higher ground
it's not love that you fear
it's what you might leave behind
love it hides in places
in your heart, in day and night.

Love let it guide you on your way
Love let it guide you home
Track Name: Best Friend
fall down sleep deprived and overtired don't know what's right
climbing a staircase that's new to me i see your face
straight lines, bright lights we go in circles all the night
morning sunshine from fading moons now side by side
we must be connected
you answer all my questions before i do
we can be together
now i know the answer
you're my best friend
skylines hide truths that we know we're yet to find
slow down the down, the world just got faster try to rest your mind
flying oceans and walking waterfalls in line
life breathes in smiles and tears all for love you'll see
we must be connected
you answer all my questions before i do
we can be together
now i know the answer
you're my best friend
Track Name: Get You Out Of Here
broken down now you're in strife, going to get you out of here
ask yourself do you want this life, going to get you out of here
we'll take the train, the next one in, going to get you out of here
everything from now is new, i'm going to get you out of here

just once in a while it's time
to leave your past behind
just once in a while it's time
we'll look for the warning signs
you'll be fine

everyone's in such a rush, going to get you out of here
we are one, two of a kind, going to get you out of here
pack your bags and your fragile mind, going to get you out of here
destination anywhere, i'm going to get you out of here

just once in a while it's time
to leave your past behind
just once in a while it's time
we'll look for the warning signs
you'll be fine

going to get you out
going to get you out
going to get you out
i'm going to get you out of here
Track Name: When The Weight Is Gone
you head to your little room again
feels like the walls are caving in
still life frozen on the bed
thoughts flood the pages in your head
when the weight is gone
you'll be free to disappear
you can walk that road again
hunger blackens in the night
pray that everything is right
lights buzz, flicker in the room
take me, take me to the moon
when the weight is gone
you'll be free to disappear
you can walk that road again
when the weight is gone
when the weight is gone
when the weight is gone
Track Name: Fall Into Place
fall into place
flames passing caves
fall down again
see life for love
it's your troubled mind
your troubled mind again
it's your troubled mind
it's getting you down again

slow down you're the best thing I need around
slow down you're the best thing I need around

all that you know is here so take flight
sun tires down
sit, wait around
light never dies
all life is ours
it's your troubled mind
your troubled mind again
it's your troubled mind
it's getting you down again
