Track Name: LEAVE THEM ALONE
LEAVE THEM ALONE

They live a life of peace
No harm to you and me 
The greed of man destroys
The life thats
gifted to our world 

Ashamed by our ways 
The slaughter in the bays
No sense in how we act
Man the stone-age artefact

Leave them alone

There is a need to feed 
this love of human greed
The guardians of the seas
Wish no harm to you and me

Leave them alone
Track Name: WE AS ONE
WE AS ONE

I want to be 
A better man
Do the best that I can
For the ones I love 
And share this life
Be together
Going to spend my time

Close to you
You close to me 
We as one 
Forever be
Close to you
You close to me 
We as one 
Forever be
Life from the past
Is all around
Guiding you
From stormy ground
Fear has died
Inside my heart
Closer now
We're not apart 

Close to you
You close to me 
We as one 
Forever be
Close to you
You close to me 
We as one 
Forever be
Track Name: THE WORLD STOOD UP
THE WORLD STOOD UP

Time for reflection
Peace
Gather
Belief
Remember 
Young and the old
Quite and hungry
Out in the cold

The world stood up
The walls came down
Sound of joy all around
The tables turned 
And ears they burned
Took a chance with our hands
With our hands

The sharers and the givers
Out on the streets 
Angels around us
Work when you sleep
The tired and caring
The brave and the bold
The smilers and lovers 
That light up our world 
Track Name: CAN'T GET OUT OF THE WIND
CAN’T GET OUT OF THE WIND

I was playing on the Isle of Hoy
Sang until I lost my voice
While the wind blew crazy
Then I got lost at sea
Ended up on Tiree
On a Calmac ferry

I CAN’T GET OUT OF THE WIND
Keeps blowing me back again
I CAN’T GET OUT OF THE WIND
Oh no no no

Ended up in Lamlash
Got a wee bit of cash
From the pierhead tavern
Went to see John Martyn sing
But couldn’t hear a bloody thing
Cause the wind kept howling

I CAN’T GET OUT OF THE WIND
Keeps blowing me back again
I CAN’T GET OUT OF THE WIND
Oh no no no

Ended up in Portree
Went to Dunvegan to see
The Peatbog Faeries
Ended up in Edinbane
Farquhars playing fiddle again
It was amazing 

I CAN’T GET OUT OF THE WIND
Keeps blowing me back again
I CAN’T GET OUT OF THE WIND
Oh no no no
Track Name: WELCOME MY SONS
WELCOME MY SONS

Welcome my son welcome to this world
Welcome my son welcome to this world

Nights are long as the days go rolling in
It won’t be long till that river is rising again
Your mothers eyes and my fathers smile is what I see
It won’t be log till you’re rocking and rolling with me

Welcome my son welcome to this world
Welcome my son welcome to this world
I’ve been dreaming about you for so long
You and me we’re going to be fine
I can’t believe its happened to me rightness
But thats right thats right i’m you’re daddy I’m you’re old boy
Track Name: THIS IS THE LIFE
THIS IS THE LIFE

Put your boots we’re going out
Up the mountain to the very top
We’re going to climb
Put your boots we’re going out
We’re going to see the horses
We’re going to take them out for a ride

Life
Oh thats life
Life
This is the life

Put your coats on we’re going out
To a party
We’re going to let it all hang out tonight

Life
Oh thats life
Life
This is the life

Life life life This is the life
Track Name: FOR THE MEMORIES OF
for the memories of

I went out to see my dad
I dopnt think hell could be so bad
cause he was lying in a ward
all alone with the curtains drawn
then i saw in his eyes
he had been to the other side
for they had taken out the voice
from a man with no chaoice
going to sing it high
going to sing it low
going to sing everywhere i go
for the memories of
the greatest dad a boy could ever have

eighteen years from this day
i went with my mum to hear them say
another year you have to go
i’m sorry that you had to know

going to sing it high
going to sing it low
going to sing everywhere i go
for the memories of
mum dad and for all the love i had

let the wind blow high
let the wind blow low
from my heart you will never go
Track Name: HIGH ON YOU
High on you

I'm low
On cash
On beer
On stash
On time
Cheap wine
On sun
shine

But baby
I'm high on you

I've got
cheap
shoes
Bad
News
A
Rears
Way up to my
Ears

But baby
I'm high on you

Everywhere I seem to go
I see your face
Everywhere I seem to go
i feel so out of place
Without you

I'm down on luck
no fuel
i'm stuck
on lives be breaks
i'm no great shakes
but baby
i'm high on you
Track Name: GLENELG FERRY
Glenelg ferry

Glenelg ferry across the ocean
Glenelg ferry across the sea
Glenelg ferry across the ocean
Takes me where
Where I feel free
