Track Name: All The Years
All The Years - Awna Teixeira

there's a sweetness in the air
the little sunlight in your window
a little love from all who care
a little smile to show you

all the years we have are golden
all the years under the sun
you can call me when you need me
you can fall and I will be there
I don't want to lose this feeling
let's just feel this way forever

There's a wild in your eyes
in the cold city Skies
a little something inside
a little fire a little light

all the years we have are golden
all the years under the sun
we don't need to hurt each other
we don't need to go away
I don't want to lose this feeling
let's just feel this way forever….
Track Name: Wooden Treasure
There are holes on the mountain side
Where they all used to run and hide
When pirates’ ships sailed in to steal the love right out of their eyes.

Don’t let them take your children
Don’t let them take your wife
Don’t let them steal the sun and the light out of your life

Where the green parrots cry
the sugarcane grows sky high
red earth lays quietly while
The world passes her by

Don’t let them take your heart
Don’t let them take your peace of mind
Don’t let them steal the sun and the light out of your life

In the vineyards the vines grow
Beneath the light of the highway roads
They dig the grave of the poor man’s soul even his grave is not his own
Don’t let them take your sorrow
Don’t let them take your strife
Don’t let them steal the sun and the light out of your life

we fight together
for something better
we leave the old world for a better life
Track Name: Kiss And Tell Your Ghosts
Kiss and Tell Your Ghosts - For my parents.
Awna Teixeira

The biggest love
in this whole damn world
You based your whole lives on it
You couldn't wait, to get out of your parents house
Finally, you could be anything

who's gonna bring you back
when you've gone too far too far
who's gonna give you hope
when it seems all lost all lost
There's a breaking point
and you see the light
and your tears they fall, keeping you alive

Section 1-
he was good to you
you were good to him
Your love was greater than you hold

Section 2-
She was good to you
you were good to her
and you held on for as long as you could

DriveN ON the highway screaming
at the top of your lungs
beatin on the steering wheel with your fists.
Slamming the doors, running all around the house
crying so loud, this has got to be it.

find a way to cope
kiss and tell your ghosts
22 years and not a word
find a way to cope
kiss and tell your ghosts
when you hang your head
you are gold 
Track Name: Sailor's Dream
A sailor’s dream - Awna Teixeira

It’s been too long girl
The carousal takes another turn
And the music plays so loud
the mares’ go up and down

My heart goes spinning round
You look so good in your summer dress
You look so good
I can’t wait to hold you now

In the weight of the bow
All the sails are out
The wind carries us all around
Till night falls till night falls

All the grain cars are sleeping
And they’re quietly dreaming
Of all the ties and cold steel rails
Of a life with out fail
They fly around the junk yard

In the dead of the night
with my arms open wide
I can see so clearly now
under the moonlight
under the moonlight
Track Name: Thunderbird
Thunderbird - Awna Teixeira

Thunderbird cast a shadow
on the ground , fly around
Pale moon, fire eyes in your golden dream

The sun falls and paints a rose
the colour of the sky that glows
She's is full of all them golden country colours

Thunderbird bend and fold
grey stone under the earth
wild girl set a herring to catch a whale

Thunderbird Move the lines
hold your bones close your eyes
You will see that nobody knows better than you
