Track Name: REMEMBER WHEN
its been along time oh my
its been along time since we met
its been along time Inky pinky
its been along time since we all sledged


Remember when
We went down the river when the sun shined
Way back then
Never had a worry
Or a care I
Loved to spend
Lost days fishing
With my old pals
We were free
Running in the fields
Till it got dark

its been along time oh my
its been along time since we met
its been along time Inky pinky
its been along time since we all sledged

TIME TAKES ALL US
TIME DONT CARE
TIME CANTFOOL US
TIME TO SHARE


Remember when
We used to buy our music
in the big town
way back then
we had to get the bus it took an hour
and all the punks
gathered outside of listen records
we were young
always went everywhere together
Track Name: WRITTEN ON STONE
Written on stone

The sail is up
Taking us all
A place we've never
Been to before

Eyes on horizon
We're moving fast
To the rhythm
Of our hearts

There is a fire
It's in us all

We'll ride together
Standing tall
With hope to guide us
We cannot fall

With you my love
Here by my side
I see the future
This is our time

There is a fire
It's in us all
I've seen our future
Written on stone

Got to fight for the right to be free
All we ask is to live life in peace

The sail is up
Taking us all
A place we've never
Been to before

Eyes on horizon
We're moving fast
To the rhythm
Of our hearts

There is a fire
It's in us all
I've seen our future
Written on stone
Track Name: THE STARS ARE GUIDING YOUR WAY
Met a Lady in a Dublin town
She Took my hand
And sat me down
I can see that you love to sing
Bright lights and two diamond rings

oo don’t you worry
everything going to be alright


Hold on
hold onto you hat
Big changes r on its way
The sun in your moon went out
But a star are guiding your way

oo don’t you worry
everything going to be alright


Met a Lady in a Dublin town
She Took my hand
And sat me down
I see that you love to sing
Bright lights and two diamond rings
Track Name: THINKIN ABOUT YOU
I couldn't leave my bed
Can't get you out my head
You've taken over me
life will never be the same you're in my memory

I'm thinking about you
In the morning time
I'm thinking about you
Every day and night
Because I love you
But I just can't see
What the hell would you want with me

For you I'd change my life
Yes I'd compromise
You are why I sing
Life can be so wonderful
Love is a magic thing

Im thinking about you
In the morning time
I'm thinking about you
Every day and night
Because I love you
But I just can't see
What the hell would you want with me
Track Name: SHARE THE NIGHT
share the night
share the night
share the night
share the night

the cold
nights calling
I'll be here to keep you warm
when hard
Times knocking
I'll be your shelter from the storm

share the night
share the night
share the night
share the night
I'll be here to keep you warm
share the night
share the night
share the night
share the night
Be your shelter from the storm

Two crows are watching
On this path I've started to walk
The tide is shifting
Now Its feeling lighter to walk


It’s hard to tell you
quite how much you mean to me
mere words are nothing
to the life the you’ve given me

Track Name: I MISS THEM
he was was my father
really love to have a blast
best dad I could of had
she was she was my mother
she always had a great big smile
laughter was her style

and i miss her
and i miss them

remember on the dance floor
jiving with my mum and dad
best night that i’d ever had

they loved
to take the floor first
and spin each other round
so happy they were both so in love

and i miss her
and i miss them

thank you than you thank you

nice to to remember all the
great times we had
it wasn’t really all that bad
and hard times those we handled
the love kept us strong inside
so lucky that we had that life


and i miss her
and i miss them

thank you than you thank you
Track Name: THE DAY WE CAME FOR YOU
Well hello little one
how was today did you have fun
we’ve all been waiting too long
for this great day to come

Well hello bonny man
I’ll give you everything I can
welcome into our arms
the day we came for you

Well hello cheeky one
I watch you swim
I watch you run
love was in the wind my son
The day we came for you

I CANT LOVE YOU MORE
YOU'VE EVERY FEELING TAKEN
YOUR TINY LIGHT
HAS EVERY SENSE AWAKENED

Well hello my best friend
It's great to see the smiles again
Spirits rose when you were sent
the day we came for you
Track Name: HUMAN MINDS
Fear was in the air
Brothers and sisters took care
Kept their heads down
trying to disappear

Everyone was petrified
in their houses they cried
no one knew what side
these bombs were falling from

these human minds
won’t fight here no more
they know do deep down
its not their war

just want to live
feeling safe
with their families
far from all the pain
all the pain

Fear had won the day
got to leave all our homes
to start a new life
into the unknown

We were all so afraid
mums and grandmas they prayed
for a new day
we can all sleep in peace

chorus
I
Nobody wanted to be seen
talking to this man
The villagers heard whispers
his kind were now the damned

TV and their papers made
into targets again
these neighbours and work mates
No longer welcome here

these human minds
won’t fight here no more
they know do deep down
its not their war

just want to live
feeling safe
with their children
far from all the pain
all the pain
Track Name: NOWT WEIRDER THAN FOLK
Theres nowt weirder than folk
Some folk say hello
Some keep their heads down low
Some folk always remember names
of everyone they’ve met before

Some folk feel out of place
Some folk feel no shame
Some folk love to help all others
thats the ones they keep us safe

Theres nowt weirder than folk
On this planet that we all call home
theres nowt weirder than folk
from Antarctic to the cold North Pole

Most folk stay real close
to their wee yins and their folks
but some folk drift away from loved ones
Guess That's just the way it goes

Some folks spend their life
with their husband or their wife
Some folk like to stay free and single
And party out every night

Driving to Glencoe
on a dark black icy road
to play my songs to all the good folk sheltering from the snow
now i can see the light
the fires are burning bright
the air is filled with smoke snd whisky
dancing in the night
Track Name: TURNED HIS LIFE AROUND
Well I met an Old friend last night
Man he said I think I've seen the light
He was never a one for change
That's when I knew he was home again

Turning around
He's Turning it around
He was on his knees
Now he's turning his life around

They said He was doomed
He's wasn't programmed just like you
But u Should never put a good man down
If you're are on your on knees you might be needing him round

Turning around
He's Turning it around
He was on his knees
Now he's turning his life around

Its all a state of mind
think you will lose then you are gonna be right
If you wanna love this life
Get off your knees
You never know what you'll find
Track Name: PEACE ON EARTH
We Found how to make flames
Cars & computer games
We sent ships up to Mars
Found black holes in the stars

But why can we not find peace on earth

We've put a man on the moon
Made billionaire tycoons
Found Cures for killer disease
Made Nuclear submarines

But why can we not find peace on earth

Precious diamonds we've found
Oil & gold underground
Found out how to clone sheep
But are we looking for peace

We've built bridges and trains
Supersonic airplanes
Cities up to the skies
Found many ways to get high

But why can we not find peace on earth
