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: 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: All smiles
I\m all smiles darling, you would be too
If you knew, all these smiles are for you
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: 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
