Track Name: You held me
You coming around
It was another Monday

Same familiar sound
We were stuck in an old sway

Arms tangled in mine
Only holding for display

No good alone
I was thrown into disarray

Time ticking along
Maybe we could have turned away

I was ill with you
And you held me the way I wanted to be held

Any longer
We would have fallen deeper
Any stronger
We would have knocked each other out
Any wrong dear
Was not for us to know
Any Longer
Maybe we would not have let it go

Oh I didn’t want you to go
You came back
Somehow I know
It’s better now
Track Name: Moab
Morning arrived before sun did shine
Donkey, Balaam the princes of Moab
Off on the track to meet Balak

Step by step and hoove by hoove
Round the bends in beat of
The breathing, breathing

Donkey saw up ahead
Angel of the Lord with sword in hand

Scared confused what could she do?
But dart to the field where her wide eyes teared
Balaam beat, beat her
Wrong way to treat her

Up she got and on they went
Round the bends in beat of the panting

Donkey saw up ahead again
Angel of the Lord with sword in hand

Startled frightened twice the pain
Too narrow to hide or to run away

Balaam beat beat her
Wrong way to treat her

Why’d he do that?
The Angel let donkeys voice ring out
Balaam can’t you see what
Open your eyes
Open your eyes and see right today
Track Name: Under the sun
In the night I saw you running
Chase the wind and strive for your money

There’s gotta be more
There’s gotta be more
In the night I saw you running

Chasing the wind
Round and around the globe you go
Never finding, never finding a finish line
No finish line
You’re in denial
There’s no finish line

You’re like a stream flowing,
Down to the sea not knowing
Where you’ll be ending up is where you’ve come from
You think you’ve seen it all
Think you’ve heard it all breathed it all
But you’ve only just begun

Could you leave it all?
Could you leave it all?
What are you dreaming for?
Under the sun
Under the sun
Track Name: Afternoon
Home with you
We are dancing through a stormy afternoon
Us two
With our carts of treasures buried in our room
Knowing soon
When the sirens call at night
You’ll sleep right through
I’m alone,
I am running with a blanket through the blue

Give me a place to dream
Where the alarms don’t ring
You’ll find me there
You’ll find me
Give me a place to dream
Away from the place I’ve been
You’ll find me there
You’ll find me

Home on my own
I’m alone here on a rainy afternoon
Without you
Dancers shoes are dust filled in my room

Rainy Afternoon
I will find a way to be there through and through
Come June
I will find a way to fly my love to you
