Track Name: Magical Day
MAGICAL DAY

It’s a whisper at daybreak before you’re awake,
It’s the words that you needed, said a moment too late.
It’s the gentlest caress, when a glance is too much,
The chance to confess, when you most fear guilt’s touch.

It’s a need for the truth, as you listen to lies,
A glimpse of the parting standing next to your bride.
A vision of beauty before you can talk,
A nosedive from the skies before you can walk.

It’s being drawn together on a magical day,
Thinking forever in a magical way.
One pinch you’re not dreaming, your searching is done.
Existence has a meaning, your living has begun.

It’s a magical day.

It’s the one time of meeting and the moment has passed,
You’d have given your soul to know it was the last.
It’s your prayers answer but your faith has died,
It’s the gift of a lifetime for the last one left alive.

It’s your bright new beginning, you’ve heard your first word,
Worlds are for the winning you can soar like a bird.
You can bleed for a universe that’s losing it’s way,
Pluck stars from the heavens turn night into day.

It’s being drawn together on a magical day,
Thinking forever in a magical way.
One pinch you’re not dreaming, your searching is done.
Existence has a meaning, your living has begun.

It’s a magical day.
Track Name: World To Share
WORLD TO SHARE

Still can’t believe it, telling everyone about it.
Not paying attention, guess I said it once too often.
Want to listen, want to say it all.
Need reassurance, feel so masterful.

Don’t hold out for meaning, dreams they don’t stay that long.
In this world, fear is a fairy tale.
Pour some coffee, I need a cigarette.
Bring on tomorrow, I’ve turned my back on regret.

Can’t wait for the moment when we both know it’s true.
Living for the chance to live, dying is for fools.
To wish for anything is more than I can dare,
I know the universe is waiting for you to care.
I’ve seen the future blazing from your eyes,
You’ll turn me from destruction, tear down my disguise.
Goodbye darkness, the sun is in your hair,
Hold out your hand my love, I give you the world to share.

Down by the water, another café day,
Tired of waiting, there has to be a better way.
I think she knows you, do I run or do I dare?
I dare enough to lie, a line about just being there.
Goodbye darkness, I see you standing there,
Hold out your hand my love, I’ll give you the world to share.

Don’t hold out for meaning, dreams they don’t stay that long.
In this world, fear is a fairy tale.
Pour some coffee, I need a cigarette.
Bring on tomorrow, I’ve turned my back on regret.

The skies are falling, the world it waits to move,
This is the one chance to forget what I could lose.
To wish for anything is more than I could dare,
I know the universe is waiting for you to care.
I’ve seen the future blazing from your eyes,
You’ll turn me from destruction, tear down my disguise.
Goodbye darkness, the sun is in your hair,
Hold out your hand my love, I give you the world to share.
Track Name: Singing
SINGING

Come on inside,
It’s getting much colder.
There’s food on the table, the fires burning bright.
If I’m not mistaken we’re both one day older,
There’s a lifetime of giving to warm us tonight

We share all we have, breathe on our memories.
Talk without speaking, a glance is enough.
Used to dream about riches, the power wealth could bring me.
Never thought it would be love that would make me sing.

I’m singing you’re your praises. Singing of love.

Put you’re Sunday best on, revisit a childhood.
You are safe so be strong,
Make your dreams come true.
Make a wish for the future, close your eyes like a child would.
When it comes to the end I’ll be holding you.

We share all we have, breathe on our memories.
Talk without speaking, a glance is enough.
Used to dream about riches, the power wealth could bring me.
Never thought it would be love that would make me sing.

I’m singing you’re your praises. Singing of love.
Track Name: Silent Night
SILENT NIGHT

It’s getting late,
Let’s go home,
A walk in the snow
No need to walk alone.

All is quiet,
All is calm.
This is the birthday,
The dawning of the first day.

Do you remember what we said?
The quiet hunger that we fed?
Born of that night
We were we said…..
Our words were gifts blessed by the dead.

We said this is our silent night, this is our holy night.

There’s nothing to fear,
The past has gone.
Look to the day of giving,
That’s where we belong.

I am here,
You are safe.
I’ll wrap my arms around you
Feel my love surround you.

Can you still see our world of white?
No sense of cold, so warm inside.
We are made by the gifts that we bring…..
Given on the birthday of the new born king.

We sing this is our silent night, this is our holy night.
Track Name: See You Again
SEE YOU AGAIN

For endless days we’ve been facing the end,
Can’t read the future so take what it sends.
Give thanks for your wisdom when I could not see,
Pray for a peace that will set you free.

Lay all the anger back to rest,
Hold onto the love with which we are blessed.
Mistakes we have made cannot tear us apart,
As daylight fades, I give you my heart.

Would give all that I have to end your going,
Will hold your hand to make you feel safe.
Leave when it’s right, I’ve done my growing,
There’s a smile inside says, I’ll see you again.

Promises made shall not be broken,
Words that give life they have been spoken.
Put your trust in what I can be,
When you face the light, I’ll be there to see, see you again.

Would give all that I have to end your going,
Will hold your hand to make you feel safe.
Leave when it’s right, I’ve done my growing,
There’s a smile inside says, I’ll see you again.
