Track Name: ILLUSION
she's locked alone
princess in white
in her tower
she's waiting there
for her shining knight
come to save her

he came to her like in a dream
so real it seemed
he came alive so..when her love was near
but love he fears

falling so deep
under his spell
in a moment
but his war torn heart
still cold, can't melt
enough to love her

he comes alive so.. when her love is near
so real it seems
to rescue her and from the dream within
but it's love he fears

alone again
feeling lost without her knight
his presence still haunts her
t'was a phantom ghost in the shadows dark that night
beneath the armour
and is love just an illusion?
Track Name: JULIENNE
all your anger all your hurt
it don't matter in the end
what you had and what you lost
and her name was Julienne

well, days go by
we start again
the stars still burning bright
talk of forever? - we've only got today
are these dreams made for fools
not knowing all the moves?
but so in love with her

like a friend that won't let go
there to haunt you till the end
and creeping up now and again
her name was Julienne

well, days go by
we start again
the stars still burning bright
talk of forever? - we've only got today
are these dreams made for fools
not knowing all the moves?

seems so long ago
beyond the life that we now know
with innocence we'd glide beneath the stars
and memories in the wind
they're pulling at our skin

well, days go by
we start again
the stars still burning bright
talk of forever? - we've only got today
are these dreams made for fools
not knowing all the moves?
but so in love with her
Track Name: TOMORROWS NOT ENOUGH
trying hard just to stay alive
working hard at your nine to five
keeps getting tougher every day
people can’t leave you alone
so you're gonna disconnect the phone
making a mad world go away

tomorrows not enough
you know you can’t give up
waiting for joy to come your way
well someday you're gonna shine
someday you will be fine
live your tomorrows here today

looking at this long road ahead
hearing voices in your head
saying, don't look back, just carry on
so you live your life day by day
can’t do it any other way
tomorrow's a promise to no one


can’t see what’s ahead
your eyes are blinded by the sun
yesterday's forgotten, dead and gone
live your life for today
and you' ll find a way
while a crazy world goes on and on and on…
Track Name: HOLIDAYS & GETAWAYS
dreaming of a holiday
an island paradise
we can take a slow boat now
or we can fly
we can escape far from the sound of this city
and wake up by the sea

holidays and getaways
we’re doing fine now
we're walking hand in hand to a sunrise
holidays and getaways
just close your eyes now
we’re in paradise

so let’s head far away
on an ocean blue
in a rented motor boat
just me and you
to our island hideaway, I guess we've found the key
and now that we are free...
Track Name: WELLSPRINGS
lonely man, he searches all around
'till finally his true love can be found
secrets unlocked now in his soul
now his love can flow

and woman gives her heart to a man
from her fountain of love deep within
overflowing into his hands
giving life to them

above all things always guard your heart
for it is the Wellspring where life starts
from the time we're born until we go
like a river our life gently flows

but our hearts get broken everyday
carelessly we give our away
guard your heart like it was of gold
treasures to behold
Track Name: LOOK AT ME NOW
look at me now
eyes deep in shadows
look at me now
stood in a crowd
look at me now

dream what I dream
as time slowly passes
dream what I dream
stare at the clouds
and hear not a sound

one night
one love
one life to make it good
and one touch
one kiss of happenstance
one step away
one look away
from all this heartache now
love comes slow but leaves so fast

feel what I feel
it's 3am - same old story
feel what I feel
pray what I pray
don't turn away

one night
one love
one life to make it good
and one touch
one kiss of happenstance
one step away
one look away
from all this heartache now
love comes slow but leaves so fast

look at me now...
Track Name: SAFE ARRIVAL
when you were feeling insecure
when you were looking but never sure
testing the waters now and then
there's someone who knows you rather well
someone who built you up again
a shoulder to cry on as and when

safe arrival now
from under your lonely cloud
living the fairy tale again
so guide this ship to port
from all the storms you've fought
this can be your journey's end

a second chance to live once more
the lights shine bright along the shore
the harbour walls come into view
a new beginning from the past
as the sail fills up the mast
the wind blows softly behind you
Track Name: LOVE COMES IN DISGUISE
here I stand
staring down
on a windswept bridge
high off the ground
why did you hurt me so?

and no matter how you try
perfections seldom found
in this life
my illusions are forlorn
was there something I did wrong along the way?
forget me not....

just want you here in my arms again
see the love that stings my eyes
just need you close to my heart again
'cos love comes in disguise

not angry
'cos I love you so
don't hate you
'cos I need you so
why did you change from who I know
and knew so well?

but I guess I'll make it through
I love you
and I know you love me too
choices made
and chances go
I'm searching for a place called hope
and dreams made of gold
Track Name: LORD THUNDERING MAN
there are storm clouds overhead
while she listens in her bed
coming nearer slowly
so bring on down this rain
to wash away the pain
she's made him feel so lonely

so here's Lord Thundering Man
he's doing what he can
"I'm not enough" he cries
"I'm wanting more" she will reply

he gave the whole of his life
to be there by her side
let her hear his sounds of thunder
he tried to read between the lines
and understood her mind
but the spell that he is under now...

he's Lord Thundering Man
and he's doing what he can

when the moon comes out to shine
emotions at last subside
let her heart be a little softer...
Track Name: SAD CHORDS GOODBYE
you said goodbye
I watched love fly
don't wanna cry
you turned away
what could I say?
I thought you'd stay

when the rain came pouring down
all I heard was the sad sound
of my heart beating slower still
oh, my love, you left too soon
when two souls seemed together and so true

you said goodbye
I watched love fly
don't wanna cry
then came the pain
alone again

as the rain came pouring down
all I heard was the sad sound
of my heart beating slower still
oh, my love, you left too soon
when two souls seemed together and so true

sad chords always make me cry
these frozen teardrops in my eyes
fill the ice pond where my hopes once lay
I guess I'll need to start again
and in time forget the way I feel today

and still the rain came pouring down
but all I heard was the sad sound
of my heart beating slower still
oh, my love, you left too soon
when two souls seemed together and so true

if only you had turned around
heard my heartbeat a lonely sound
out of rhythm and so out of tune
I guess I'll need to start again
and in time forget the way I feel today

I watched love fly
sad chords goodbye
