Track Name: Tonight You’re Mine
I took you down the only road you’re ever gonna need,
With flowers in your hair tonight, all the glitter you’ll ever see,

And I know it’s oh so fine,
Cos I’m with you all the time,
Tonight you’re mine,

I took you down to see the stars above the rolling sea,
With moonlight in your eyes tonight, you look so heavenly,

And I know it’s oh so fine,
Cos I’m with you all the time,
Tonight you’re mine,

And it’s already after midnight baby,
Let’s press our lips beneath the stars,

And I know it’s oh so fine,
Cos I’m with you all the time,
Tonight you’re mine,
Track Name: Bees Behind the Glass
We move like bees behind the glass,
While everybody stares,
Behind the walls, we scrape and crawl,
While everybody stares,

And all I need is a light,
To come shining down tonight,
Upon you,
Upon me,
Upon us,

We wait for days, they seem to drag,
And nobody here cares,
Knock down the walls, be holding hands,
Cos nobody here cares,

And all I need is a light,
To come shining down tonight,
Upon you,
Upon me,
Upon us,

We move like bees behind the glass,
While everybody stares,
Track Name: Napoleon’s Tea
Nobody knows where we’re going today,
But it doesn’t really matter much anyway,
Hey hey,

I used to be worried all about the dark,
But Noah said to me ‘come and join the Ark’,
Hey hey,

We’re swimming in the sea but there ain’t no sharks,
There’s a ship out there, looks like the Bismarck,
Hey hey,

And Josephine’s up on the balcony,
And Napoleon says ‘Hey what’s for tea?’
Hey hey,

It’s such a big problem just to find my shoes,
And Elvis he says ‘You gotta play the blues,’
Hey hey,

And Nobody knows where we’re going today,
But it doesn’t really matter much anyway,
Hey hey,
Track Name: All That They Have
All that they have is their clothes,
And their dirty, unwashed, crying souls,
They take their time,
To seek a sign,
Of hope, to give them a home,

All that they have is their time,
Just waiting for God’s clock to chime,
They take their time,
To cross the lines,
Of hope, please God no more drones,

And we wait,
And we cry,
And we watch as they all go by,

All that they have is their hearts,
And a love not to split us apart,
They take their time,
And queue in line,
For a hope they’ve never been shown,

And we wait,
And we cry,
And we watch as they all go by,
Track Name: Love Enough to Shine
I hear those lost words you said,
But they don't make any sense,
It's like a whirlwind has come,
And taken you instead,

But I know,
In your mind,
There's love enough to shine,

I feel you touching my face,
I feel you holding my hand,
The wind has come to erase,
The things that you understand,

But I know,
Take your time,
There's love enough to shine,

We'll be here now,
You don't need to say,
Holding your hand,
And you know,
It's okay,

I hear those lost words you said,
But they don't make any sense,
It's like a whirlwind has come,
And taken you instead,

But I know,
In your mind,
There's love enough to shine,
Track Name: Talking to Myself
Come outside right now and I’ll tell you the news,
Peter Pan he ain’t real and the dog ate my shoes,

All that matters right now is I’m in love,
I’m alone but I’m in love,
I’m alone but I’m in love,
I’m alone but I’m in love,

Come outside right now and I’ll tell you the deal,
Peter Pan ate my shoes and the dog she ain’t real,

All that matters right now is I’m in love,
I’m alone but I’m in love,
I’m alone but I’m in love,
I’m alone but I’m in love,

Talking to myself, yes I’m talking to myself,
Track Name: Feed Me Some Rope
I act like the man with no hope,
But feed me some rope,
To be hanging on you,
And that's what I'll do,

I act like the man with no faith,
But please a lifeline,
Just give me the sign,
And I'll follow you...you...you,

I act like the man with no dream,
But it's not so extreme,
I'm not what I seem,
When I follow you...you...you,

Let's go down,
Let's go down,
Let's go down,
Now to the river,
And take off our clothes,
And take off our clothes,
Track Name: Go in Grace Kid
So go in grace kid,
And show your face kid,
What else can we do but get on with it all?

So let’s go,
On our way,
There’s road enough today,
The improbable is but a kiss away,

So go in grace kid,
There’s so much to give,
What else can we do but try to see it through?

I see what you did,
Just trying to live,
The storms they will come,
But they will pass on too,

So let’s go,
On our way,
There’s road enough today,
The improbable is but a kiss away,

So go in grace kid,
And show your face kid,
What else can we do but get on with it all?

I see what you did,
But this is short-lived,
The tears they will come but you don’t have to crawl,

So let’s go,
On our way,
There’s road enough today,
The improbable is but a kiss away,
Track Name: Unexpected Film
There was always happiness in your heart,
It was always there and that’s a start,
But it can easily fall apart,
Like an unexpected film,

And there are you are up on the screen,
And with a smile that’s unforeseen,
Have I forgotten where we’ve been?
Like an unexpected film,

And I really couldn’t ever say goodbye,

There is always happiness in my heart,
It is always there and that’s a start,
And you remind me to play my part,
In this unexpected film,

And I really couldn’t ever say goodbye...
Track Name: Condolences and Raindrops
You know the world is spinning round,
And I’m a believer,
And so are you,

You know you’re not so easily found,
I’m not a deceiver,
So don’t be blue,

Condolences and Raindrops,
Will be falling from your bed,
Condolences and Raindrops,
Will be all the words I said,

It’s always, always on your mind, tonight,
It’s always, always on your mind, tonight,

You know the world is upside down,
And I’m a receiver,
And so are you,

You know I’ll save you when you drown,
Come be a believer,
It’s up to you,

Condolences and Raindrops,
Will be falling from your bed,
Condolences and Raindrops,
Will be all the words I said,

It’s always, always on your mind, tonight,
It’s always, always on your mind, tonight,
Track Name: Hetty Pegler’s Magnetic Tape
And was I really there when it came to pass?
Don’t you know?
And I just don’t remember all the broken glass,
Don’t you know?

And Hetty’s climbing down the fire escape,
And there’s nothing in the box but magnetic tape,

And I really can’t remember all the things we did,
Don’t you know?
And my memory’s just like a broken sieve,
Don’t you know?

And Hetty’s climbing down the fire escape,
And there’s nothing in the box but magnetic tape,
Track Name: Come on Down
Come on down,
The price is right,
The words you have,
They shine a light on us,

Come down here,
It’s time to wake,
The words you have,
They will not shake our love, no, no,

Come on down,
It’s time to leave,
The words you have,
They are for me, I know, it’s okay now,

Come down here,
There’s things to see,
The words you have,
Will be for me, this time, this time,

Come on down,
The price is right,
The words you have,
They shine a light on us,
They shine a light on us,
They shine a light on us,
Track Name: Tonight You’re Mine (Acoustic)
I took you down the only road you’re ever gonna need,
With flowers in your hair tonight, all the glitter you’ll ever see,

And I know it’s oh so fine,
Cos I’m with you all the time,
Tonight you’re mine,

I took you down to see the stars beneath the rolling sea,
With moonlight in your eyes tonight, you look so heavenly,

And I know it’s oh so fine,

Tonight you’re mine,

And it’s already after midnight baby,
Let’s press our lips beneath the stars,

And I know it’s oh so fine,
Cos I’m with you all the time,
Tonight you’re mine,
