Track Name: THE EVERLASTING
begin the silence now so I can rest
please give me up some peace, where hell is less
and my hands are reaching out...
so, baby here I stand so unafraid
towards your tenderness , I cannot fail
this is only where we start...

the everlasting's in my mind
I cry and I cry 'cos I love you
and like a fool I'd walk through fire
something so good can't be denied I realise now
don't give it up , just let it out
I'll try and I'll try - don't wanna lose you
and if you see an uncertain smile
it's only for the world between our lives

when the feeling's strong and two are one
and all the doubts have gone, spirits on the run
no longer wanna hide

the everlasting's in my mind
I cry and I cry 'cos I love you
and like a fool I'd walk through fire
something so good can't be denied I realise now
don't give it up , just let it out
I'll try and I'll try - don't wanna lose you
and if you see an uncertain smile
it's only for the world between our lives

the everlasting's in my mind
I cry and I cry 'cos I love you
and if you see an uncertain smile
it's only for the world between our lives
Track Name: DEEPER THAN DEEP
deeper than deep, she said
eyes full of tears
deeper than deep, she goes
can't stop the feeling
can't stop the knowing

deeper than deep, she said
to the voices in her head
such endless thinking
and helplessly falling
falling in love again

deeper than deep she cried
somehow more alone now
stolen's her heart again
addicted to emotion
and the words of devotion

it's in her eyes for everyone to surely see
fills the air but within she cannot breathe
she is one for not letting go of hope
her strength is all her own
Track Name: MIGHTY FINE
I may be leaving in the morning
it's been a long time, and I'm falling
is this head right?
and my mind straight?
but I'm ok......

been working hard for survival
to help me through to my revival
we all need a hug
let our hair down
and feel alright.........

yes, here I am
am I feeling mighty fine?
just let it roll for me this one time
oh, let it be
stop messing with my mind
can't you see I'm slowly dying all the while?

and still the music keeps on coming
just like a diary that I'm giving
oh, to be with you
is my desire
my soul's on fire

I may be leaving in the morning
it's been a long time, and I'm falling
we all need a hug
let our hair down
and feel alright.........

I may be missing in the morning...
Track Name: ECHOES OF ORIGIN
these days of a future passed
slip away now through my grasp
dreaming in a world that's lost
sitting where, I count the cost
and see the secrets that make me weep

long ago when time was young
a melancholy life begun
a visit to the devil's lair
and falsehood was everywhere
I tried to keep this faith within alive

now, the sounds like an echo
so wistful, they seem
bright new horizons
and of dreams...

these days ever after
to reach for the sun
look for that something and someone
if love is the answer
I cry to the moon
stars ever falling.....
Track Name: PENDULUM
here I swing
just back and forth
in motion
weight suspended
hang upended
in seclusion
yes, I'm a ticking of a clock
something here you can rely on
and here I swing away...

I'm counting down the hours when the door to my heart will be opened
'cos it's you that holds the key to give me life before I get to slowing
where did the days and weeks all go?
watching and waiting as time goes by
and as it flies
I need you....

left and right
turning hands of time
no confusion
no pivot free
releasing me
towards illusions
so don't you forget and let me stop
just wind me up with your love
here I'm swinging now....
Track Name: TOO MANY CIRCLES
look at me down
well, I guess I've just lost control
a vista's before me now
I hope to live before I get old

to four worlds I give my all
forgive me if here I fall
it feels like I let you down
never thought that you'd love me

too many circles are spinning around
so many voices are speaking aloud
faster and faster 'til they crash to the ground
yes baby I'm hurting now...

there'll be a hole in my heart
if you tell me that it's too late
don't feel very smart
as I sit and wait

living four lives should give it all
which'll save me should I fall?
silence don't make no sound
if no one will hear you?

fate is not an eagle
but creeps up like a rat
for defence there is no armour
faster and faster now - my hearts beating loud
yes baby I need you now....
Track Name: SYMPHONY OF A DAY
dance 'til the dawn
from a twilight in a city
see them talking, holding hands
4 am, they go from bars
and on to parties
there's something they won't understand...

in the morning
wake up early with the same blues
could stay in bed all day....
in offices and factories
there's no time to lose
still, you think of the phone call you should make...

leave it behind
saying "I'll see you tomorrow"
afternoon, it's 5pm
a meal for one
then as evening surely follows
your TV's turned on as a friend

this twilight city
turns its back on the lonely
whispers mockingly "goodbye"
bedsits, apartments
no land of milk and honey
the watcher still looks out on the night....
Track Name: SCREAM TO A HUSH
it's too late to run now
stood alone in the dark
echoes sound a presence
shadows move, and you start

you can feel somebody
feel a thrill down your spine
is it a game you're playing?
you do it time after time

scream my lover
look in my eyes
for all the promises you're looking for
hush my baby
there's nowhere to hide
you like to taste the other side

stars no longer shining
purple sky has turned to grey
come on, don't be shy now
you're never going to be the same

hush my baby
'cos it's over
look in my eyes
hush my baby
come to my arms
'cos it's over....
Track Name: MASQUERADE
so end this masquerade
and all those words deceiving
dreams drifting away
searched but never finding
don't be so afraid
no use in pretending now
it's all a masquerade
love can be the answer
don't let it be a stranger
mysterious, no one can match those eyes
so dangerous, no one can catch her lies
she's glorious and everyone will ask
for all the story of the girl behind the mask
actress, sing your song
and hope will spring eternal
and if it seems all wrong
when all the day's nocturnal
turn your face to see
still fresh, young and youthful now
oh, lay your vernal love on me
Track Name: SWANSONG
she's living by the stars
I can't believe what's in her mind
still she says it our goodbye
so I sing this swansong to the night

so fly away, I wish you well
far from these arms where you belong
I cry as you leave
and close the door
surrended now my heart
you’ll be there as I close my eyes
wherever you may go
I’ll remember you

reaching out but not getting through
gone are the moments at your side
were the best I ever knew
now the curtain falls for you and I

now my wings are broken
where did I go so wrong?
and how can I be swimming against the tide?
but every day she reads about what's in store for her
and those words that she believes will be her guide
