Track Name: Sleep Easy
SLEEP EASY

Wild eyes, tousled hair, standing on the bridge
Teardrops making ripples on the water
Can’t hide, frozen still, against the odds again
Come back down, we’ll talk a while about it

Sleep easy little princess
I hope you’re gonna sleep so easy when you dream
Sleep easy little princess
I know you’re gonna sleep so easy when you dream

I’m a believer in you, I’m a believer in you

New life, watch it grow, helping it along
Time to fertilise the flowerbeds again
To fast, way too slow but never somewhere in-between
Pull the weed up by the roots or it’ll grow again

Sleep easy little princess
I hope you’re gonna sleep so easy when you dream
Sleep easy little princess
I know you’re gonna sleep so easy when you dream

I’m a believer in you; I’m a believer in you

The lull of a bygone day blows by leaving me with a dream for the night
And the question of sleeping is not so much when, but of why
I’d like to be able to tell you your dreams, the good ones are so hard to find
But it’s bigger and longer and harder and stronger than I, I, I

Wild eyes, tousled hair, stranded on the bridge
Come back down, we’ll talk a while about it
To far, not far enough, but never somewhere in-between
Change your mind, you’re doing fine without it

Sleep easy little princess
I hope you’re gonna sleep so easy when you dream
Sleep easy little princess
I know you’re gonna sleep so easy when you dream

I’m a believer in you; I’m a believer in you
Track Name: Big Machine
BIG MACHINE

The silent earth is screaming
As autumns child is dreaming
Steel waters run deeper they say
Mother Natures’ heart is aching
As a brand new day is breaking
But in waking dreams are fading away

The world keeps spinning ‘round in the big machine
And the walls keep tumbling down in the vivid dream
But the wheels are slowing down in the big machine
The big machine

The clouds forever
Crying tears of love for life is dying
Summer sun but winters’ chill is all I feel
Who can justify
This ever-turning tide of madness
The hand of fate rotates the ever-slowing wheel

The world keeps spinning ‘round in the big machine
And the walls keep tumbling down in the vivid dream
But the wheels are slowing down in the big machine
The big machine
Track Name: Climbing Frame
Instrumental
Track Name: Clue
CLUE

I sit and wait, and I’m petrified of you
Times getting harder now and I still haven’t got a clue
Looking so hard to find the reasons why I hurt
And I can’t believe a word

I think of the moments, all the time we had to share
Did you take the easy way out, you didn’t seem to care
In life you were living, in love you were losing, you seemed so out of touch
But you don’t care that much

I try and try to free a shattered dream
The tortured silence sounding louder than a million screams
Maybe there’s a way to save my sanity, there has to be
But it’s so damned hard to see

Take it away from me, keep it away from me
Just stay away from me, it’s too late
You’ve made your mistakes

If it were simple, we’d be together now
We could have made it through the barrier somehow
I want to believe you when you say you love me too
But I don’t think it’s true

Take it away from me, keep it away from me
Just stay away from me, it’s too late
You’ve made your mistakes

“Tell me of your problem” said the voice inside my head
“I’ll find the answer to your questions if you like
there is no way that I can guide you if you lock them up inside
show me your darkness and I’ll help you find the light”
and the voice said “take it away, just keep it away from me
take it away, just keep it away from me
take it away, just keep it away from me
take it away, just keep it away”
and the voice said “take it away”

now it’s all over, now it’s all said and done
I’ve counted my alternatives and you’re not the only one
Looking so hard to find the fire through the flames
Well it helps to ease the pain

Take it away from me, keep it away from me
Just stay away from me, it’s too late
You’ve made your mistakes
Track Name: Paradise
PARADISE

There’s paradise, and there’s the real thing
It’s kinda nice, and it’s ever-changing
It’s in a dream, it’s on an island
It’s happening, it’s what you make it
There’s paradise, do ya wanna shake that tree

There’s paradise, do ya wanna shake that tree
There’s paradise, do ya wanna shake with me

There’s paradise, and there’s a doorway
Leads to the places I can be
It’s a great big world, good for exploring
We have to make our destiny
There’s paradise do ya wanna shake that tree

There’s paradise, do ya wanna shake that tree
There’s paradise, do ya wanna shake with me

And any time that you’re in doubt
We can work it out, we always have done well
And who can tell, it gets better
We may just even be there already

There’s paradise, do ya wanna shake that tree
There’s paradise, do ya wanna shake with me
Track Name: Frontline
FRONTLINE

An accidental man – a badge of glory,
Soldier of fortune – twelfth mile of history,
Recalled to the frontline – place of discovery,
Only time will tell of misplaced chivalry

Bayonettes gleaming – still standing tall,
As you watch all your friends fall,
Kings and lords keep marking time,
Soldier of fortune stands in line,

Reward the command, Fight the battle,
Men to chase – the sabre to rattle
Reward the command, Fight the battle,
Men to chase – the sabre to rattle

Mighty vigilante, doubled in his rage,
Soldiers of fortune caught in his cage,
Cannons light up the valleys in the dead of night,
Conscript stands in awe and shows his might,

History tells all in the tapestries,
The soldier says “le mort chasing me!”
From the battles of Troy to Agincourt,
Solider of fortune – death is the score
Track Name: Nobody Like You
NOBODY LIKE YOU

You’re wonderful, you’re marvelous
You’re fresh as the day you were born
You’re innocence, you’re inner sense
A sensual place to explore
You send me, you mend me
You’re all that I need to survive
Sweet rhapsody, you encapture me
I’m quite certain I know of nobody like you

Nobody like you, nobody
I know nobody like you my friend
I know nobody like you

You’re ecstasy, you’re energy
You’re all that I would like to explore
You thrill me, you fulfil me
You will be my life evermore
Because you’re so alright, you keep me up all night
And I’m high all day on the joy of it all
You’re amazing in your ways and I’m in a daze
cos I know of no no nobody like you

nobody like you, nobody
I know nobody like you my friend
I know nobody like you
But I know you
I know nobody like you, nobody
I know nobody like you my friend
I know nobody like you
Track Name: Always Be There
ALWAYS BE THERE

You opened my eyes with the sweetest of kisses, you
You lifted my heart with your sheer delight and you
You give me good reason to always be there for you
Always be there for me too

You light up my life with your radiant passion, you
Soothe my desires with your sweet remedies and you
You give me good reason to always be there for you
Always be there for me too

You got it made just like I got it made and we
We can make up for any lost time so
So lets stay together whatever the weather
We’ll be together forever

You opened my eyes with the sweetest of kisses, you
You lifted my heart with your sheer delight and you
You give me good reason to always be there for you
Always be there for me too
Track Name: Year by Year
YEAR BY YEAR

Time is a driver, moving me on
Memory’s a driver, trying to return to what went wrong
Freeze-frozen pictures in a flashback show

Finding an answer to questions past
Each time the error seems much bigger than the last
How do we change it, how do we grow

Remember your childhood
People and places no longer here
Remember your childhood
The moments pass us and roll on year by year
Year by year

Time is a rival, keeping me down
I want to breathe and feel my feet rise off the ground
Each day a burden, an unwelcome load

I’m a survivor but I won’t say my name
I’d much prefer it if I didn’t take the blame
It’s not my problem and I don’t want to know

Remember your childhood
People and places no longer here
Remember your childhood
The moments pass us and roll on year by year
Year by year
