Track Name: Falling For You
I gotta watch myself, take extra care
See all the danger signs popping up everywhere
I gotta shut the door, I gotta draw the line
I gotta listen to my head and not my heart this time
I gotta measure up every little thing I do
or I find myself falling for you

You know you dress so fine, yeah you look so sweet
You're turning everyone's head walking down the street
You've got an angel's face, you've got the devil's smile
You've got deep dark eyes honey, you're a little wild
Yeah you're so fine, I don't know what to do
I find myself falling for you

Falling for you...

I gotta anchor down, I gotta take control
I gotta hold back a tide that's rushing right down to my very soul
I got a racing pulse, I got an urge inside
It's hotter than a two dollar pistol boy, it won't be denied
Here I go again, I can't believe it's true
I find myself falling for you

Falling for you...
Track Name: Moving On
This summer heat is giving me the chills
These vagrant ways remain within these hills
Gave it a try, settling is not my way
so when the rain comes, that's when I'm moving on

You've grown on me - my usual cue to leave
This clean air is getting hard to breathe
That mountain range always too far away
so when the rain comes, that's when I'm moving on

What's going on? What's going on in my head?
One day I'm staying. Next day I'm leaving
All these events have their consequence

It's hard to know where it went so wrong
The lake's been drained. All the life has gone
If I've a chance, I have to take it now
so when the rain comes, that's when I'm moving on
Track Name: On My Own
I'm turning these four walls into my home
I never thought I'd live alone, I'm on my own

There's nineteen years of you and me
Packed up in boxes under my feet, We're history

I've got some plants that I put in pots
A money tree for luck and forget-me-nots, Forget-me-nots

There's my TV screen, for months it's been black
You always fixed it, You had the knack, You won't be back

My second-hand lounge is purple and green
It's much brighter than my TV screen, I wish I could scream

I paid too much much for my new washing machine
The cycle's too long and my clothes aren't clean
I wish I could scream. Why can't I scream?

A photo of my Mum is up on my wall
She's beautiful, she's strong, not even five feet tall
I miss my Mum

And beside my Mum, a photo of my son
He's handsome, he's loyal, he's my fragile one
My fragile son

There's my single bed where I miss your heat
I wish I could cry myself to sleep
Wish I could weep. Why can't I weep?

Our wedding photo used to sit by the 'phone
I never signed up to live on my own. I'm on my own.

I'm turning these four walls into my home
Track Name: Bringing It All Back Home
You thought that you left me sinking in this hole
Now you've changed your mind, it's tearing apart my soul
Think we can go again, it's easy to say
but your heart doesn't always lead you in the best possible way
You wanna come back 'cause you're feeling alone
Nothing's gonna change, you'll be bringing it all back home
Bringing it all back home

Buried all our troubles 'til the hurt was gone
Thought I was over you and it was time to move on
You brought those feelings back, tough choice to make
Not a simple matter of a little give and take
Well you wanna come back 'cause you're feeling alone
What's gonna change? You'll be bringing it all back home
Bringing it all back home

Time to think back now, you're stringing me along
Make up and break up, it's an old familiar song
I see it in your eyes, the way you hesitate
Won't you turn back now, you know it's never too late
Well you won't come back 'cause you've made it known
Nothing's gonna change, you'll be bringing it all back home
Bringing it all back home
Track Name: Let's Drive
Let's drive, let's travel light
Drive through the day into the night

Let's drive, let's travel far
Drive through the night, in the dark in the car

In the dark in the car as the world rushes by
The car engine purrs a soft lullaby
Rest your head, rest your head, it will all be alright
As we drive through the day into the night

Our wounded hearts are on the mend
There's hope ahead around the bend
Wheels turn, turn on the tar
Drive through the night, in the dark in the car

n the dark in the car as the world rushes by
The car engine purrs a soft lullaby
Rest your head, rest your head, it will all be alright
As we drive through the day into the night
Track Name: Whoops-A-Daisy
Whoops-a-daisy love, you've fallen again
No need to cry just bite your lip and count to ten
Ups-a-daisy now you're a mess there on the floor
Does it really hurt that much? Are you really that sore

Never tell nobody if you're feeling low
'cause feeling low's a crime you miserable so and so
What do you mean you're still in bed?
You said you'de meet me down the town?
Stick a smile on your dial, No you can't wear your dressing gown

Feel your pain but don't complain
Keep your troubles to yourself, don't be a drain
Drag your aching feet but make sure you stay upbeat
Stick a grin above your chin and never admit defeat

Onward and upward drag yourself up from the floor
What do you mean you're not sure you can get out the door?
Fresh air will do you good, just you wait and see
Walk off some of those kilos, get some vitamin D

Stay calm and cool when you're feeling the heat
Stay upright and strong even when you're weak
For every bright side they say there's a dark
but you're only allowed to show the light in your spark

Remember honesty's the best policy but when they ask "how are you?"
Lie politely through your teeth "I'm great. And you?"
Don't dare tell them the truth, don't be a dramatic so and so
because even though they asked they don't actually want to know!

When it comes to social media there's an unspoken rule
That separates the cultured from the ignorant fool
Remember "only positive comments are allowed on this site"
Because negative is wrong and positive is right

Well you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't
so the best you can do is whatever floats your boat
and I am one who likes to have my say
and the ones that like me, like me that way
so to the ones who like me, yes I've fallen again
I'll just have a little cry and then I'll count to ten
I'm sorry I'm such a mess here on the floor
and yes it really hurts that much
and yes I really am that sore
Track Name: Party on the other side
She's the salt of the ocean, she's the ebb and flow
She's the sun rays at dawn, she's the full moon glow
She's every wondrous colour in every rainbow
Now it is time to let her go

Now she flies like an angel and she shines like the brightest star
Her mortal battle is over. She is close and she is far

Now her spirit's in the mist and her soul rests peacefully
She did her best, we know she did her best
Now hear her whispers on the breeze

Now her beauty lingers on in her children and our memories long
She fought hard and she fought strong
She is here now and she is gone

And the darkness in her body has turned to pure white light
Sweet relief, oh sweet relief, now she is dancing in full flight
Yeah she is here, still, just out of sight

She's the salt in the ocean, she's the ebb and flow
She's the sun rays at dawn, she's the full moon glow
She's every wondrous colour of every rainbow
Now it is time to let her go
There's a party on the other side, a party on the other side, a party on the other side
She's the salt in the ocean, she's the ebb and flow
She's the sun rays at dawn, she's the full moon glow
She's every wondrous colour in every rainbow
Now it is time to let her go
There's a party on the other side, a party on the other side, a party on the other side
