Track Name: Wild Blue Skies
Wild blue skies, river running free
takin' me down to the clear blue sea
Wonderin' where the cold wind blows?
You'll never know

The joker wares his snake hat smug up in the sun
Pouring out his insides, empty meanings that were done
Its all his washed up ego lets him do to pass the time
Fixed up in a mindless wasted bin-bag covered rhyme
He's got no time for reason, its all he can do
To make up and believe in some other bodies truth
Dont ask the joker why, he'll only lie

Mary Mary cant understand
Thorns in her pocket, holes in her hands
A true believer down on her knees
Mary Mary who do you please?
You can love her or leave her
But she'll never be alone
The stars believe her
Its all she needs to know
Dont ever even try
You'll only wonder why

Father Father so high up above
Come on tell me who do you love
Come on tell me who do you love
Father Father so high up above
Always fighting for forgiveness
Its such a brilliant waste
Sooth you're troubled mind
With that old familiar rage
Father Father what do you find
When you're all alone?

Wild blue skies, river running free
takin' me down to the clear blue sea
Wonderin' where the cold wind blows?
You'll never know
Track Name: Down to the river
Lets get down to the place we know
Cut some ice with a fiddle and bow
spend some time at the old crow show
Drink a little wine with the people we know
Upside down but still above
Call it pain, call it love but
People that jump from church to church
You know they wont amount to much

Lets get down, down to the river
Build ourselves a fire
Get on in out the freezin' cold
Sit and watch those flames unfold
Wait a while on the other side
Leave with something new
Place your dreams in a paper cup
We'll send them back to you

My old friend used to say
Whole lot of people gonna come your way
Everyones got something to say
Better do it your own way
Leave it out with the setting sun
Go out strong have a little fun
This time around gonna do it right
See it on through to the morning light

Lets get down, down to the river
Build ourselves a fire
Get on in out the freezin' cold
Sit and watch those flames unfold
Wait a while on the other side
Leave with something new
Place your dreams in a paper cup
We'll send them back to you

Lets get down to the place we know
Cut some ice with a fiddle and bow
spend some time at the old crow show
Drink a little wine with the people we know
Upside down but still above
Call it pain, call it love but
People that jump from church to church
You know they wont amount to much
Track Name: I'm all smiles
I'm all smiles darling, you would be too
If you knew darling, all these smiles are for you
Rain hasn't fallen for days, rainbows are filling the sky
My heart must have painted those rainbows
I see shine before my eye

I'm all chills darling, through and through
My cold heart darling, warms to the thought of you
Someone to die for, beg steal and lie for
Eat humble sky for, someone to fly to the sun moon and sky for
To live for, to laugh with and cry for
That someone is you

I'm in love oh darling, deep and true
Guess who with darling, here\s your clue
Someone to die for, beg steal and lie for
Eat humble sky for, someone to fly to the sun moon and sky for
To live for, to laugh with and cry for
That someone is you

I'm all smiles darling, you would be too
If you knew darling, all these smiles are for you
Rains still not fallen for days
But rainbows are fillin' the sky
My heart must have painted those rainbows
I see shine before my eye
Track Name: Fever
Some day soon, somethings gonna give
Peace of mind, its in the love that you live
One way or the other
Hey little sunshine set me free
Into your heart now let me be

Oh what a lesson to learn when your promises burn
On like a fever
On like a fever

Warm your bones like a brand new day
Something goods gonna come your way
Its one way or the other
Hey little sunshine dont you know
Take a little time to let it grow

Oh what a lesson to learn when your promises burn
On like a fever
On like a fever

If there's a little cloud over you
Just stand back and let it through
Then you'll see a better day
Let the wind of promise chase away

Some day soon, somethings gonna give
Peace of mind, its in the love that you live
One way or the other
Hey little sunshine what d'ya say
nows the time so lets get away

Oh what a lesson to learn when your promises burn
On like a fever
On like a fever
On like a fever
On like a fever
On like a fever
Track Name: River Red
So where do I go, when I sleep colours come back to me once more
And i can see just like before,
Fever like a new game, let it rise let it go
To the back yards of all the people that you now

Just like when I met you I remember you said
Come to my new place down by the River Red

Hush now, no need to cry
There's a reason you're here
Like the sun in the sky
Lightin' up what you fear
Like a moon on a sea,
You've seen it before
Go tell the powers that be
You ain't going back no more

Just like when I met you I remember you said
Come to my new place down by the River Red

We'll dream all our worry away
Down by the river stay
We can dream all our worry away
Down by the river stay

You take me far far away, my fever gettin' better
A little closer every day, my burnin' desire
I like the things that you say, it doesnt really matter
We're all goin' the same way, happy even after

Just like when I met you I remember you said
Come to my new place down by the River Red

We'll dream all our worry away
Down by the river stay
We can dream all our worry away
Down by the river stay

All our worry away, we can dream all our worry away
We can dream all our worry away
We can dream all our worry away
We can dream all our worry away
We can dream all our worry away
We can dream all our worry away
We can dream all our worry away
We can dream all our worry away
Down by the river stay
Down by the river stay
Track Name: Little Swallow
Tell me how you know it grows my dipping deep, all it shows
Beside your sweet bitter bows, all you light and shadow glows
Inside its you, let it loose, pass on by, hang the truth
Next when I'm alone with you I'll turn my heart adhere to you

Oh Little swallow sitting on my window
Takin' time to know which way the wind blows
Tell me tell me what must i do
Little swallow sitting on my window
Takin' time to listen to the rail fall
What must i do,
Oh tell me tell me what must i do

You walk to me so honestly, with all your smiles cautiously
Asked me then if now was right, turn it all around tonight
And if i said i only would, burn my thrown of silver wood
You'd cast your eye to all who see, show them how to make believe

Little swallow sitting on my window
Takin' time to know which way the wind blows
Tell me tell me what must i do
Little swallow sitting on my window
Takin' time to listen to the rail fall
What must i do,
Oh tell me tell me what must i do

Shadows block the light beneath your sisters silver door
You've seen the world from inside out, lyin' on the floor
With your mother's hands, bruised from working 9 to sixty-four
Your heart reflects on a piece of glass
Another night before

Oh Little swallow sitting on my window
Takin' time to know which way the wind blows
Tell me tell me what must i do
Little swallow sitting on my window
Takin' time to listen to the rail fall
What must i do,
Oh tell me tell me tell me what must I
Tell me tell tell me what must I
Tell me tell me tell me what must i do
Track Name: Butterfly
Wake up little butterfly, wave your wings and fly high
Wake up little butterfly, wave your wings and fly high
When you're tapping on her window, tell her from me
You're the sweetest little butterfly i think i'm gonna see
When you wake up butterfly, pass this on for me

You sing that song so sweet, sing it one more time
Sing that song so sweet, sing it one more time
Coz when you sing it oh so softly and i hear all of those words
I'm thinkin that this must be the sweetest thing i ever heard
Sing that little sweet song, sing it one more time

I woke up this morning, fell right straight out of bed
Got no way of getting you girl out of my head
I've got no way of knowing and its waring me thin
I keep on thinkin you with him
And i just can seem to get myself together
Hate the idea of needing you
For everywhere i go i see you there
Smell your scent in the open air
And it makes me cold as my sweat gets harder
Cant catch my breath my hearts beating faster
As the black wall hits me in the eye i think i'm gonna

Wake up little butterfly, wave your wings and fly high
Wake up little butterfly, wave your wings and fly high
When you're tapping on her window, tell her from me
You're the sweetest little butterfly i think i'm gonna see
When you wake up butterfly, pass this on for me
Track Name: Over and over
Had and idea inside my head
An idea I wanted to remember
But something took its place instead
Pushing me further and further
I went down to a dark dark place
A place inside over and over
Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
And now its comin' over and over

But I know what i've got to do
Keep on sayin' i'll see it through
Dont give up when I fall down
Coz its comin' around and around

So here you are back at my door
Comin' around just like before
Same old thing far as i can see
Reachin' out for a hold on me

But it feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong

But I know what i've got to do
Keep on sayin' i'll see it through
Dont give up when I fall down
Coz its comin' around and around

There's a cold wind callin' out your name
Says to believe
And when the cpld rain washes away
What will it leave?

Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right cant be wrong
Feels so right
Track Name: Honey Bee Blues
You spend your life believing
Just what you're told
Got no way of leavin', got no place to go
So you're gettin' a high, layin' low
No reason why, you just want all the gold
Oh, you better leave it alone

Coz every now and then, you might just find
You need, take a little time, clear your mind and get back on a roll

You say you saw it comin', always in the know
Table turned and you got stung, just like before
The Eyes dont lie, well what d'ya know
It's the same old highs, same old low
Oh, you better leave it alone

Coz every now and then, you might just find
You need, take a little time, clear your mind and get back on a roll

I don't believe in setting in stone
I don't believe we're all here alone
I don't believe what some people say
I dont believe what I heard today

So its on your mind, will it ever let you go
Aint no place to hide, its all you know
People gettin' high, layin' low
Thorn in your side, everywhere you go
Oh, you better leave it alone

Coz every now and then, you might just find
You need, take a little time, clear your mind and get back on a roll

So you think you've got it down, its all you need to know
Got it all sewn up, you think you run the show
Back on a high, layin' low
No reason why, you just want all the gold
Oh, you better leave it alone

Coz every now and then, you might just find
You need, take a little time, clear your mind and get back on a roll

I don't believe in setting in stone
I don't believe we're all here alone
I don't believe what some people say
I dont believe what I heard today

Back on a high, layin' low
Back on a high, layin' low
Back on a high, layin' low
Back on a high, layin' low
Track Name: Let it Show
Purple dreams
Broken throwns
Mixed up tricks n bricks n bones
Mothers smiles
Childhood homes
Secret dreams
Colours shown

Take it back to what you know
Sit n watch the colour grow

You live your life do or die
Born to survive
You have soul inside of you
Let it show, oh little darlin'
Let it show


Summer suns,
Plastered knees
Kickin' around
Patched up jeans
Sittin' on a passin' breeze
Climbin' high
Swingin' trees

Take it back to what you know
Sit n watch those feelings grow

You live your life do or die
Born to survive
You have soul inside of you
Let it show, oh little darlin'
Let it show

And then you came into my life
Opened up the door
Showed it to me, we lay on the floor
You are my savin' grace
With you its easy
Leaves no trace

Grown up sense
Dance room floors
Sippin' in through one way doors
Killin' time a little more
Singin' rhymes with the girl next door

Take it back to what you know
Sit n watch the colour grow

You live your life do or die
Born to survive
You have soul inside of you
Let it show, oh little darlin'
Let it show
Track Name: Simple Reason
Its been a long time comin'
Now there's nothin' left to say
We used to be so close together
Now all that seems so far away

I know our love was never easy
But it always found a way
A simple reason to remember
Was all it needed yesterday

You've been so long now runnin'
Your feet don't touch the ground
After all this time you've done now
Can you tell me what you've found

A simple reason to remember
Was all it needed yesterday
I know our love was never easy
But it always found a way

Would you settle for a smile
Or are you better on your own
If only for a little while
Would it kill you to know
Will you take what you find
Or look to the stars
Ground in your mind
Is that what you are?

A simple reason to remember
Was all it needed yesterday
I know our love was never easy
But it always found a way

Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded
You may not find you're so fine now you're finally...
Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded
You may not find you're so fine now you're finally free

All night long dancing in the pouring rain
This time around now you know you know your name
All night through waiting for a chance to shine
Now you know you know your mind

Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded
You may not find you're so fine now you're finally...
Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded
You may not find you're so fine now you're finally...
Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded
You may not find you're so fine now you're finally...
Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded
You may not find you're so fine now you're finally free

Been a long time, been long time, been a long long time
