Track Name: and it's you
Of all the people that I know
And the places I could go
There is something that draws me to you
Of all the wild times that I've had
And the ways I've made you sad
My love was always true

See I don't know another way
To make you understand what I need to say

Sometimes when my head is spinning round
And my answers aren't that clever
Don't think my mind will last a real long time
But this love might last forever

And it's you

If there's a feeling I should show
Or a line that I should throw
I never mean to get so confused
There's so much comfort in the way
We live together every day
I could not do it without you

And when I see your lovely smile
I know I'll make another mile

Sometimes when my head is spinning round
And my answers aren't that clever
Don't think my mind will last a long long time
But my love will last forever

And it's you
Yes it's you
Track Name: save a life
Save a life
Save a life
Save a life
Save my life

I was living on the darker side of my cage
Which door to open, what war to wage
Circumstances have a way of pushin' you round
Everybody got to take from life what goes down

Save a life
Save a life
Save a life
Save my life

It's a battle everyday just not to surrender
Even harder not to come off like an offender
Sit on down and take a listen to what I say
It's no big deal, it happens everyday

Save a life
Save a life
Save a life
Save my life

How deep it goes is what they say
And the ones we love are the ones that pay
Take us to a place that we've never been
Oh oh it's so right

You don't need a reason to make someones day
A simple smile can touch them in so many ways
Get your head to a place that keeps it kind
Change your life for the better I think you'll find

Save a life
Save a life
Save a life
Save my life

Save a life
Save a life
Save a life
You saved my life
Track Name: the bus
Was talking to a man about what then this and that
I didn't have to read his mind
He said he never made it in the world where he was at
He said life been so unkind
His voice would waver when he spoke about his kin
I think he realised the mess that he was in

He'd been up down turnaround listen to the world
Take another shot about face and try again

There was this lady and she talked about her past
And how the future wasn't bright
When she was young she had a lover but it didn't last
She thought that he was Mr. Right
Half a world away she made another life
Keep the spirits up and be a damn good wife

She'd been up down turnaround listen to the world
Take another shot about face and try again

A man told me that he thought he wasted time
And that his life wasn't long enough
I said moving faster ain't gonna change a single sign
Life will always call your bluff
He shook my hand and he wished me all the best
Felt so good just to get it off his chest

He'd been up down turnaround listen to the world
Take another shot about face and try again
Track Name: for andrew
So many things can go wrong in this world
I find myself longing for days gone by
They told me yesterday
That you had gone away

And I hope you are where the sun is shining
I hope you are where the days are fine
Though it's like a dream
You're not here it seems
Oh I'll miss you

So many people they come and go
But only a few will make a mark on your life
You leave me good memories
My friend I was very pleased

To know you and your gentle ways
To know you and your thoughtful turn of phrase
My heart's on my sleeve
It's hard to believe
Oh I'll miss you
Oh I'll miss you
Andrew we'll miss you
Track Name: still on my feet
I used to make a mess
With all my friends
I could burn the candle
At both ends

I would push the envelope
Right to the limit
If there was some trouble to be in
I was in it

It was a gas when I was trashed
But now I'm changin' my point of view
And I'm staying home now
Somehow life is sweet

I wish I could remember
All of those great days
I only know we laughed a lot
And had fun in spades

Floatin' round a smoke filled room
Tryin' to find the door
Sleepin' in a friendly bed
Or crashin' on the floor

Seemed to me it was the way it should be
But now I'm seeing things a different way
And I'm staying home now
Somehow life is sweet
Cause I'm still on my feet

I'm reciting the same lines from a different book
I'm singing the same songs with a different hook

What I had been back then like I am now
Don't think I'd have fit right in somehow
Season after season come
Time roll by
Living on the edge don't make
The eagle fly
What's done is done I had my fun
But now the road leads a better way

And I'm staying home now
Somehow life is sweet
Cause I'm still on my feet out here now!
Track Name: reason or a season
They came together in a city on a summer day
It wasn't long before they fell in love that special way
And by a river he kissed her mouth and held her tight
Felt so good
Felt so right

She'd been without the man she loved for way too long
He needed someone in his life to help him carry on
No matter what they knew that it would always be
For a reason or a season

A reason or a season

They walked the rocky road of up and down come and go
Some people do some people don't others never know
But through it all they left a stamp of love that they could see
In their hearts together they were free

They loved with passion and they fought with pride
Never guilty of keeping things locked up inside
Each their own they understood that it might be
For a reason or a season

A reason or a season

They felt the bed beside them grow still and cold
Life was so frought and too alone for growing old

When all the noise was done what was left they took it home
They share a love that some might say is set in stone
Unconventional they both agree
It's for a reason or a season

A reason or a season
Track Name: alive
Nobody know where you go when you die
That's what I'm thinking
Life after death is surely a lie
To make life seem easier

No one around can tell me their tale
Of what it was like
Talk all you like you won't make this sale
So get on your bike

Our body's just the box we came in
Be it good or bad
Can't send it back there's no one to blame
Don't let it make you feel sad

We're out there alone to do what we can
No spirit to guide us
Only one life be it woman or man

I feel so alive today
Still I might die today
It's just life and all it's crazy ways
I feel so alive today

Intelligent people make their own choice
About what to believe
I do the same I just give it a voice
There's nothing up my sleeve

Some say it's science versus the word
Was that god you said
The battle goes on and the arguments heard
But who cares when you're dead

I feel so alive today
Still I might die today
It's just life and all it's crazy ways
I feel so alive today

It's natural to satisfy those feelings that we're safe
Oh Oh let's live forever
Better that we contemplate the moment we may die
It might just break the fall
When we get that final call

No need to panic or live for the past
I have no doubt
Just remember this moment might well be your last
So make it count

There's folks in this world who don't have a choice
About when or what
So make the right moves and make some nice noise
For as long as you got

I feel so alive today
Still I might die today
It's just life and all it's crazy ways
I feel so alive today

I feel so alive today
Still I might die today
It's just life and all it's crazy ways
I feel so alive today

I feel so alive................
Track Name: old dog blues
How come my pain is so bad
If I can't feel
How can it be imagined
When it seems so real

How can I be so sad
When I never cry
How many questions do I have
And never ask why

I keep looking in the mirror for a clue or two
Wondering who I am
Just another footprint in the sand

How can I want for so much
That I don't need
How come there's so many signs
That I never read

And so the lonely days they start stripping away
And I'm taking back what I lend
Just another message I won't send

So why on earth should it feel so right
To give up my peace and take on that fight
I sing the old dog blues
Shine my shoes and step out
Into the night

I listen to their stories
They take my time away

So why on earth should it feel so right
To give up my peace and take on that fight
I sing the old dog blues
Shine my shoes and step out
Into the night

So why on earth should it feel so right
To give up my peace and take on that fight
I sing the old dog blues
Shine my shoes and step out
Into the night
Track Name: talk about me
Kinda gets me down

I got skin instead of hair up on my head
Kinda gets me down
I guess they just get sick of hangin' in there
when their hair friends ain't around

There's more of me than should be walkin' round
But I'm 50 plus and things are heading down
There's this thing under my chin I can't explain
Oh woe is me and all my pain

I got these brand new hairs growing up my nose
Now let me tell
In my younger days I didn't worry about such things
But now they're in my ears as well

I got these spots growing on my thighs
I look in the mirror boy and I surprised
The skin is loose the eyes are old and red and faded
Looks like myself is just well and truly jaded

Talk about me
Talk about me

I got these growing old blues
Creeping up on me
I got these growing old blues
Just won't let me be
Yeah

Talk about me

Now listen up
My bones they ache and creak and pay the toll
My fingers rattle and hum
They say there's wonder drugs to fix it all
When I ain't so broke I'll get me some yeah

There ain't one thing I can do to stop this change
It's just the way it has to be
I see myself looking older and it's strange
I still think like I'm 23

Talk about me
You know I'm talking about me

I got these growing old blues
Creeping up on me, yes I do, yes I do
I got these growing old blues
Just won't let me be

Talk about me
Talk about me and my old bones
I talk about me
It's all downhill from here.................
Track Name: bird of a lifetime
Keeping all my special things in this paper cup
You never know when you might need something
Looking down looking round but never looking up
Keeps me well abreast of nothing

Over the hill goes the well intentioned man of steel
And the reasons for his fame
Friends will drink his health and recognise the way he feels
Now he's finally out of pain

Oh how the mighty will stumble and fade away
Sometimes it's better to fight than live another day

There goes the bird of a lifetime
Flying away without me
She carries a burden of what I should be

A fire of love a storm of hate a monsoon of despair
Keeps the fermentation moving
We bubble up we settle down but never really know
If the process is that soothing

It's thereabouts but we never really hit the mark
Of the perfect combination
Sell a soul fill a hole the choice is never stark
When you're searching for salvation

Oh never let common sense get in the way
Why should we sorry so much about the things we say

There goes the bird of a lifetime
Flying away without me
She carries a burden of what I should be

There goes the bird of a lifetime
Flying away without me
She carries a burden of what I should be

There goes the bird of a lifetime
Flying away without me
She carries a burden of what I should be
Track Name: together
Somewhere a lonely river runs
In the rain and in the sun
Never does it ask or wonder why

There is a time for every man
To make the best of what he can
Keeping all his fears locked up inside

And so the flower blooms again
It never questions why or when
Sharing all it's beauty with the world

And so the woman makes her stand
On her own or hand in hand
She will bring our trouble to an end

Look to each other to find some real peace in this world
Send out the love that only help each boy and girl

And so together all as one
Together it will be done
Make our time on earth be filled with love

Together.........

Together
