Track Name: Somebody's Son
There's a young man sitting down by the side of the road
He's got all the time in the world but he's got nowhere to go
Oh brother, won't you lend me a hand?
Spoken with his eyes, he hopes you understand.

That I'm just like you, but I've fallen by the way
I'm just like you, I dream of better days
When the light starts to fade, when the day is done
I'll still be just like you
I'm somebody's son.

The loneliest place I know is on a crowded street
Where you'd kill for a smile as soon as something to eat
Oh Sister! Won't you lend me a hand?
Spoken with the courage of too few a man


That I'm just like you, but I've fallen by the way
I'm just like you, I dream of better days
When the light starts to fade, when the day is done
I'll still be just like you
I'm somebody's son.

And yes, I understand what the difference is between
What a man wants and what he really needs
I don't need a car, a boat or a big screen TV
It would be nice I guess, but what does it really mean?
I'm happy with the air that I breathe today
Things could be better but,
ain't that always the way.
ain't it always the way!

I'm just like you, but I've fallen by the way
I'm just like you, I dream of better days
When the light starts to fade, when the day is done
I'll still be just like you
I'm somebody's son.
I'm somebody's son
I'm somebody's son.
Track Name: City Lights
Darling kiss me tonight under city lights
and just for that moment I'll be glad I'm alive
this is not what I'm like but somehow it's alright

I lie awake and I watch you sleep
watch your body rise and fall when you breathe
I feel your heart beating, I feels unbelievable

In the night, oh when the night was mine
When the night was mine

Darling hold me tight until the morning light
breaks the window and there's just you and I
I'm hoping that I might be here for a while

And if just for a while
We might steal the world from between the cracks
We'll take what we want, we won't look back

To the night, oh when the night was mine
Oh the night, when the night was mine
And those city lights, yeah the lights burn my eyes
oh in the night, when the night was mine.

Darling kiss me tonight under city lights
and just for that moment I'll be glad I'm alive.
Track Name: Carried Away
Jenny was a friend of mine from another life
borne of a little town lost in time
I moved to the city and fell in love beneath the lights
I wonder how she's doing now, is she doing alright?

She knows this town, knows these streets
she'll tell you just how good it feels
to be part of something beautiful and surreal
Getting carried away on the breeze.

Danny was the victim of his own circumstance
never dreamt in a thousand years he'd be given another chance
He was all about fortune, all about fame
but the cards were marked in advance
he was forced to play the game

He knows this town, knows these streets
he'll tell you just how good it feels
to be part of something beautiful and surreal
Getting carried away on the breeze.

I was always searching out of my reach
never did see the ground hidden right beneath my feet
you were always telling me there was more that I could see
but I was a small town boy with a small town mentality.

I know this town, know these streets
I'll tell you just how good it feels
to be part of something beautiful and surreal
I know this town, know these streets
I'll tell you just how good it feels
to be part of something beautiful and free
Getting carried away on the breeze.
Getting carried away on the breeze.
Track Name: Never Grow Old
Is there anybody out there, hears the voice of the man on the street?
He's been walking through his own nightmare
now even the pavement doesn't feel safe under his feet

Cos they're gunna take what you've got
and sell the damn lot
gunna fill up their pockets with silver and gold
They're gunna take what you've got left
and put you on the shelf
so don't you ever get sick and don't you ever, ever grow old.

He's an honest man, far from perfect
and he always works so hard to earn his keep
while the greed of those above remains unchecked
and the life his fathers' made slips out of reach.

Cos they're gunna take what you've got
and sell the damn lot
gunna fill up their pockets with silver and gold
They're gunna take what you've got left
and put you on the shelf
so don't you ever get sick and don't you ever, ever grow old.

and we know where you live
and we own your pride
we'll tell you just about anything
to have you on our side
we'll cover our trail
with lies upon lies
then tell you the truth
with the sun in your eyes.

Cos they're gunna take what you've got
and sell the damn lot
gunna fill up their pockets with silver and gold
They're gunna take what you've got left
and put you on the shelf
so don't you ever get sick and don't you ever, ever grow old.

Is there anybody out there?
is there anybody out there?
Track Name: Northern Wind
I've been sitting, day dreaming
at the edge of the world
waiting for something to happen.
the tide will come in
and the tide will come out
still, I'm waiting for something to happen.

The winds of change may be coming in from the north
A call to arms should never be ignored
When the storm comes in for me my dear
you'll find me by the lighthouse at the end of the pier.

And whether this ship I'm sailing,
may be sinking
Is just a matter of opinion.
And whoever may know
which way the wind blows
Is still a matter of opinion.
for it is I, who will always be the captain.

The winds of change may be coming in from the north
A call to arms should never be ignored
When the storm comes in for me my dear
you'll find me by the lighthouse at the end of the pier.

The winds will take me where they please
But only I can steer myself to where I need to be.

The winds of change may be coming in from the north
A call to arms should never be ignored
When the storm comes in for me my dear
you'll find me by the lighthouse at the end of the pier.
When the storm comes in for me my dear
will you meet me by the lighthouse at the end of the pier.
Track Name: All Good Lovers
Lets open up a bottle of something
lets go out and make a lot of noise
we'll dance like no one is watching us
Cos it's you that I want to enjoy.
You gave me your last sip of Jura
Felt like the Rolo at the end of the tube
I don't mind what I'm drinking,
As long as I'm drinking with you.

Let me take you out on a mystery tour
Let the sunshine light up your face
There's never been a time when I've wanted you more
Than how I want you today
Let me stare into those eyes
Will I still see the same shade of blue?
Well, I don't mind where I'm going,
as long as I get there with you.

Let me cover your life in the sweetest roses
Rain kisses on the back of your hand
I'll write a few lines to show I'm thinking about
You putting a smile on this foolish man
We'll lose ourselves in anticipation
Like all good lovers do
I don't mind what I'm thinking
As long as I'm thinking of you.

I don't mind what I'm drinking
I don't mind what I'm thinking
I don't mind where I'm going
As long as I get there with you.
Track Name: Long May It Reign
Oh the morning, bring me promise and surprise
take a look inside my soul and you'll see through my disguise
we could lose ourselves in reverence, all martyrs form a line
I'd be a happy man with nothing more than a minute of your time

So lets sit beneath that shady tree and sing our cares away
share a drink to life and laughter, long may it reign.

Oh the morning, don't take the night away from me
I've been quiet for too long now and i'm almost scared to dream
cos dreaming makes it distant, it seems so far away
and i'm not much for killing time cos it won't come back again

So lets sit beneath that shady tree and sing our cares away
share a drink to life and laughter, long may it reign.

Let it rain down on me

Oh the morning, should I take a chance on life?
have you ever met a humble fool that didn't like to smile?
I may not be a lot of things, an impatient man sometimes
I wouldn't ask for all the world, you've got yours and I've got mine

So lets sit beneath that shady tree and sing our cares away
share a drink to life and laughter, long may it reign.

Let it rain down on me.
