Track Name: The Light In You
Little bird Little bird
there are some hard things for sure
but when you came into this world
all that we could see was good
the light in you
the light in you
the light in you
Track Name: Blue Heart On Your Sleeve
There's a lion there's a pretty little beast
Steals your love and sets your blue heart on your sleeve

Light a candle every day
pray for this whole wide world
she can't - hold on to - her own peace of mind
but she will pray for yours

There's a serpent in the deepest blue sea
a little fox with his arms around me

Wild nights wild horses
screaming out into the wind
that wild shines from all the beauty that you be
I'll hold your hand till you believe

Forget what you think you may be
It don't matter when your worlds upon
the sea
when you believe when you believe

Fires burnin through the autumn trees.
the smell of winter sets your blue heart on your sleeve

Wild nights wild horses
howling out into the wind
the wild shines from all the beauty that you be
I'll hold your heart till you believe

She lights a candle every single day
and prays for the whole wide world


She's a lion she a thief
stealing your heart and setting you free
and the pain stains the light in your heart
you want to hold back hold back from the start
Track Name: Wild One
It broke my heart to leave this
to leave behind all the love we found

you have always been a dream
that saves me that saves me

And you lay down into a stream
wash over me wash over me

wild wild wild wild
I hear you call
wild one

I left my ghost on the shore
I didn’t need her anymore

and I threw myself into the sea
and there I found you
loving me

wild wild wild wild
I hear you call
wild one
Track Name: Little Ghost Of A Whale
There is a tale
of the little ghost
of a whale in the sea
she knows something
about a part of us
a part of us, we can't see

and if the stars go
on forever
what do we all really mean

and if the stars go
on forever
than I want you hear with me

and if the stars go
on forever
what do we all really mean

and if the stars go
on forever
than I want you hear with me

and if the stars go
on forever
than I want you hear with me
Track Name: In The Wintertime
The flash of a fire fly in the night,
the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime,
the little shadow that runs across the grass
and loses itself in the sunset.

When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced your life

Every animal knows more than you do,
the old rabbit jumps, when the fox walks lame
A thousand voices tell a single story
listen, or your tongue will make you deaf

When you die, you can be heard, by the lights in the sky, to the end of the earth

The moon is not shamed by the barking of dogs
the old coward shoots with his eyes closed shut
Every bird loves to hear themselves sing
known for ever by the tracks we leave.

When you fight try to forgive, all the broken hands that try to give

Sing a little song flying through the trees
ghosts in the forest swimming in the sea
Fuel your fire fuel your mind
bury yourself in the wintertime

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced your life
Track Name: Yellow Moon
Tall grass blows quietly
in the heat of the afternoon sun

The yellow moon shines down on you
you can feel all the old broken hearts

Just close your eyes
I won't ever let you go

Telephone wires rise and fall
through the windows of the car as we go

The warm sun finds your winter skin
Here comes the spring and we start over again

And I'll hold you close I won't ever let you go

Watermelon dripping from your chin
running quickly on the hot summer sand

And we sing along at the top of our lungs
"this will be our year took a long time to come"

and I'll hold you close I won't ever let you go.
Track Name: Thunderbird
Thunderbird cast a shadow
on the ground, fly around
pale moon, fire eyes in your golden dreams

The sun falls and paints a rose
the colour of the sky that glows
She's is full of all the 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
Track Name: Bees and Things
Breaking sticks on the forest floor
you run as fast as you can run
The sun comes out just for this moment
the sun comes out to cheer you on

When the rain falls, the bees they carry on
in a better world, in a better world, in a better world
We will fight together

So run for your life
there ain't nothing gonna stop you this time
You may never find what you’re looking for
it don't matter it don't matter anymore

You built yourself up from the bottom
you fought for everything you are
you can't believe that final moment
will come and find you when it's time

When the rain falls, the bees they carry on
In a better world, in a better world, in a better world
We will fight together

So we run for our lives
there ain't nothing going to stop us this time.
We may never find what we're looking for
it don't matter it don't matter anymore
Track Name: Freedom Hunter
Hold your breath and close your eyes
you're alive alive alive
You wrap your cape around your neck
and you fly fly fly

Kiss your dreams and praise your heroes
alive alive alive
We are humble when we are wise
and we fly fly fly

This old world got you big and bad
and you still try try try
You hold your smile up to the sky
cause you alive alive alive

Hh oh oh oh oh oh
My my my
Oh oh oh oh
Don't forget your heart

You’re a fighter a freedom hunter
and you cry cry cry
You fight so long you hardly remember
why why why

But she's a reason to believe and you
try try try
She's the love that has set you
She's alive alive alive

oh oh oh oh oh
my my my
oh oh oh oh
don't forget your heart

love love love love love love love…..
Track Name: A Sailor's Dream
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: Away We Go
They say it's all been done before
that everything's been written
every song has been sung
and every story told
but this love that you give me
I've never known before
And with you i'll go anywhere babe

We have all the beauty and we have all the light
We have all them golden things and we have wild minds
we have everything thing we need to turn this world around
cause together we can do anything babe
and together we can do anything babe


Away we go……Away we go….
