Track Name: Airbus A380
Take to the air,
And see how it feels,
When everything's so far away, from you,

Ten thousand feet,
Of air is beneath you,
And everyone's so very small,

I can't feel what's happening,
What's happening to me?

Double-deck fun,
with five hundred people,
and nobody's watching the sky, outside,

Five thousand miles,
of world to pass over,
And everything's so far away,

I can't feel what's happening,
What's happening to me?

Take to the air,
And see how it feels,
When everything's so far away, from you,

Ten thousand feet,
Of air is beneath you,
and everyone's so very small,

I can't feel what's happening,
What's happening to you?
Track Name: Emily Oh
She smiles like a trooper with nothing to say,
Gold in her pockets, a heart made of clay,
Heaven knows, Emily Oh,

Emily Oh she got nowhere to go,
Snow falling blue, she don't know what to do,
Heaven knows, Emily Oh,

She sings like an angel that's fallen from grace,
Rings on her fingers, mischief on her face,
Heaven knows, Emily Oh,

She waves at the rain to hide out from her pain,
Lips painted red though she'd never be vain,
Heaven knows, Emily Oh,

She cries with the children and laughs on the train,
Takes taxis to operas but won't take the blame,
Heaven knows, Emily...
Oh won't you dance with me now,
Oh won't you dance with me now,

Emily Oh, she got nowhere to go,
Snow falling blue, she don't know what to do,
Heaven knows, Emily Oh,
Track Name: Hunter Creek
See the little room where a princess did lay,
Cut up all the string and let her fade away,

There's nothing here to be won,
There's no more words to be sung,

See the ginseng heads with their legs made of spine,
Throw away the cup and never taste it again,

There's nothing here to be won,
There's no more words to be sung,

Come to Hunter Creek...with me, with me,
Track Name: Orca (SF Piano #2)
Orca she live till one hundred and five...
She never sleeps...
Track Name: HighwayOneBus
Oh come along baby,
Get on the bus,
Oh come along maybe,
And don't make no fuss,

Oh come along honey,
Time to be free,
Oh come along sugar,
Hold hands with me,

Blueberry pie,
Magic is here,
Watch the sky, my dear,

Oh come along baby,
Mountains are near,
Oh come along maybe,
And don't have a tear,

Oh come along honey,
Chinese for tea,
Oh come along sugar,
Come along now with me,

Blueberry pie,
Magic is here,
Watch the sky, my dear,
Track Name: Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk
We're going down the path of least resistance,
The wheels don't mind wherever they will go,

We're going down the road of least resistance,
And I don't even wanna know my name,

We're going down the lane of least resistance,
We're driving down the highway like a train,

We're going down the road of least resistance,
And I don't even wanna know my name,
Track Name: Kicking Horse River
See you in the water now,
River flowing home,
See all the light from the stars come down,
River Flowing home,
Track Name: Salt Spring Island
Come up and see,
The world that you wanted,
Come up and see,
The world of your dreams,

We are here now,
It is here now,
Track Name: SuperVacation
Lawrence he...he came from Hong Kong and he gave us all some good advice...
Track Name: Do Not Pass Snowplows on the Right...
I can't feel the cold today,
Wheels are turning,
Nothing stays,

Photo opportunity,
Snow is drifting,
Nothing stays,

Did you wear the clothes you need?
Water falling,
Nothing stays,

Pine and cedar all surround us,
The sea is grey,
Nothing stays,
