Track Name: Sun Dream
Rising in the distance, melting my resistance
Takes its time to rise and start my day
It’s bathing everyone, reach up and touch the sun
Wonder at the power, secret mother nature

Walking with a skip, the day has got its grip
Smothered by its warmth you hear the people say
Children running round, chests out feeling proud
Jumping skipping running, shouting very loud

(Sun dream)
Busy bees surround the smell, looking to feed the kids
(Sun dream)
Butterflies flap their wings, watching for hatching cribs

For me it’s the thing I like to see
It’s that perfect time for another sun dream

Fancy a glass of juice, laid out under the spruce
Talking to a friend feels like it’s been some years
Glinting in my eye, wanting me to cry
Hardened by her glare I stare right through

(Sun dream)
Busy bees surround the smell, looking to feed the kids
(Sun dream)
Butterflies flap their wings, watching for hatching cribs

For me it’s the thing I like to see
It’s that perfect time for another sun dream

(Sun dream)
Busy bees surround the smell, looking to feed the kids
(Sun dream)
Butterflies flap their wings, watching for hatching cribs

For me it’s the thing I like to see
It’s that perfect time for another sun dream
It’s that perfect time for another sun dream
It’s that perfect time for another sun dream
Track Name: Heavens Falling
I see trees around me, swaying in the air
I sees leaves forming the bark likes to wear
Watching blossom growing, creating its own share
I see grass shaking, seeming it's so rare

I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see it falling in the air
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see it falling in the air

Blackbirds fly around me under shadows of the trees
Everything glows around me, some dark and some are free

I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see it falling in the air
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see it falling in the air

Do you still see the sparks in the rain?
Do you still think that I'm to blame?
Do you know I still need you?
Do you feel so blue?

I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see it falling in the air
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see heavens falling (heavens falling)
I see it falling in the air
Track Name: Silver Bullets
Just a face in the crowd
With a bad sense of timing
We bounce around off the walls
That close in while we’re climbing

Face the future, I know that
You’re finding it frightening
You take the rain when
Your destiny’s caught in the lightning

Shoot me down from golden skies
Silver bullets from your eyes
Shoot me down from golden skies
Silver bullets from your eyes

Too many people reading
What you should be writing
It’s not the battles you win
It’s the wars that you’re fighting

Can’t explain why we’re crawling
When we could be flying
So pick your heart off the floor
And we’ll chase the horizon

Shoot me down from golden skies
Silver bullets from my eyes
Shoot me down from golden skies
Silver bullets from my eyes

And time in this town, you know it’s dragging me back
I’ll make you a deal if you can cut me some slack
We came so far but we were on the wrong track

Shoot me down from golden skies
Silver bullets from your eyes
Shoot me down from golden skies
Silver bullets from your eyes
Silver bullets from your eyes
Silver bullets from your eyes
Track Name: Oh Baby
Devils' eyes shooting down at me
It’s the night’s hold I just can't see
Flying clouds are keeping me abound
Winding windows round and round

Walking miles through this dirt
Makes me crazy and dizzy all inside it hurts
Gasping for the one thing that keeps me sane
It's love and air and the pouring rain, oh!

Oh baby what you gonna say?
Oh baby are you gonna stay?
Oh baby what you gonna do?
Oh I’m in love with you

I see horses or are they planes?
Spin my world to make me realise that
All I need to get me there
Is you in my mind and everywhere, oh!

Oh baby what you gonna say?
Oh baby are you gonna stay?
Oh baby what you gonna do?
Oh I’m in love with you

Oh baby what you gonna say?
Oh baby are you gonna stay?
Oh baby what you gonna do?
Oh I’m in love with you
Track Name: In Harm's Way
Everyone lie out in the rain
Let the waterfall wash your tears away
Where the stars are blue time won't follow you
Where your hearts are cold like you want it to
It's coming true

I lost myself in darker days
I left my love out in harm's way

Everyone lie out in the rain
Let the heavens fall and wipe away your shame
Where the future shines you'll find brighter times
When the love you knew you can hold onto
It's coming true

I lost myself in darker days
I left my love out in harm's way

I lost myself in darker days
I left my love out in harm's way
I lost myself in darker days
I left my love out in harm's way
I left my love out in harm's way
I left my love out in harm's way
I left my love out in harm's way
Track Name: Hanging Out
Everybody's hanging out in the sunshine (in the sunshine)
Everybody's hanging out and feeling fine (they're feeling fine)
Everybody's hanging out in the sunshine
In the sunshine

See your friends drinking and thinking for each other
Hold them close, make way for love and cover
Make them your own just like a little brother
Well you hold them close and make them your own

Everybody's hanging out in the sunshine (in the sunshine)
Everybody's hanging out and feeling fine (they're feeling fine)
Everybody's hanging out in the sunshine
In the sunshine

Shining bright, wishing the night to stay
Everybody together hoping no one will stray
Living life a strain and breaking out of the clay
Tonight's the night, today's the day

Everybody's hanging out in the sunshine (in the sunshine)
Everybody's hanging out and feeling fine (they're feeling fine)
Everybody's hanging out in the sunshine
In the sunshine

Everybody's hanging out in the sunshine (in the sunshine)
Everybody's hanging out and feeling fine (they're feeling fine)
Everybody's hanging out in the sunshine
In the sunshine
Shine
Track Name: Time On My Hands (Stone In My Heart)
Find what you need a
And hope the night bears you away
Life on your knees
But we’re gonna rise up some day

Lights on the river
The city soul-singing the blues
Like a scene from a movie
Music plays for me and you

Time on my hands
Love like a stone in my heart
Time on my hands
Love like a stone in my heart

Paperback pipe-dreams
Of all the stars we’ll never meet
Lingering traces
Of people that we’ll never be

Sing me a love song
Lead me down to where we lay
Shivers up my spine
Like someone stepped over my grave

Time on my hands
Love like a stone in my heart
Time on my hands
Love like a stone in my heart

Time on my hands
Love like a stone in my heart
Time on my hands
Love like a stone in my heart
