Track Name: Trick of the Light
With her long dark hair and bright green eyes
She must be an angel that fell out of the sky
Her smile’s so warm that she makes me melt
But she is an angel that came for somebody else

She makes me shine when I’m feeling dull
And she doesn’t even know that she’s beautiful

Maybe we were soul mates in a different life
And now she’s come back to make things right
Maybe she was someone in a dream last night
A wonderful place or just a trick of the light

With her grace and care it makes no surprise
That we can share all our laughter and sighs
She makes me feel like I’ve never felt
But she is an angel that came for somebody else

We’d make the perfect pair both you and I
It’s just such a shame that we can never try
So I wrote this song to try and help
But she is an angel that came for somebody else
Track Name: Breaking Ice
I’m not here to flatter you
I’ve already said that I’ll wait for you
Can you close your eyes and imagine me
Trying to escape from the deepest sea
Is that the difference between you and me?

I’m not here to judge the truth
I’ve already said what I thought I knew
I suppose your lies are to flatter me
Help me over a gap too wide to leap
Is that the difference between you and me?

How many things can you tell from just one kiss
And just how many things can you learn from a lifelong trip
How many things can you tell from just one kiss
And just how many things can you learn
Is that the difference between you and me?

I’m not here to play guess who
I’ve already played and I’m here for you
Do we both have secrets we need to keep?
Or is that the mountain that’s just too steep

Is that the difference
between you and me?
Track Name: Clinging to Satellites
I’d like to sit up on cloud nine
And look at the world from outer space
Say look at the world what a beautiful view
Yet it never seems as beautiful as you

We’re clinging to satellites
Looking out for signs of human life
We’re drifting like satellites
Reaching out towards the distant light

Whilst waiting for the sun to rise
Just watch the world in all its grace
Say look at the world what a beautiful view
Yet it never seems as beautiful as you

And as the sun rose it dawned upon me
If I were to fall would you rescue me?
Track Name: Silent Words
Two good friends without a chance
We might have wished for something more
Silent words in each other’s glance
That we’ll pretend we never saw

And as we stand falling back down to earth
All we can hear are those silent words

I know, you don’t want to say a word
Tempt our fate or even fall for the curse
And no, I don’t want to say a word
Be loved by you or even get myself hurt

It had to end before it began
Leaving all of our feelings raw
Silent words rolling down your face
As we settle for the one all score

All we can hear are those silent words
Track Name: You Are My Movie
I'd travel the world to see you again
Cos every mile is worth it
Wherever I go, whatever I do
It always comes down to me and you

You are the stars in my universe
You are the light in my scene
You are my dream in technicolour
You are the wonder inside of me
You are my everything
You are my movie

I'm crossing the bridge to consciousness
My vision of you was perfect
Wherever I go, whatever I do
It always comes down to me and you

You are my everything
You are my movie
Track Name: The Wonderful World of Whereabouts
If you don’t know where to go
Or at times you are feeling lost
Then think of all the people
Who are still gathering moss

If you think you are in the know
Or at times you feel the boss
Then think of all the people
Who’ve only reaped the crop

When the traffic lights stay amber
And they never change to green
When the question is the answer
Can I ask you what you mean?

Life is a beautiful girl who is full of doubt
In this wonderful world of whereabouts
Life is a beautiful girl who is full of doubt
In this wonderful world of whereabouts

If you are tired feeling slow
Or at times you would feel the drop
Then think of all the people
Who missed out on the lot

Have you ever headed North
Only to find yourself South?
Have you ever gotten bored
Whilst talking to yourself?

Shall I go left or should I turn right
Or do you even think I should go out tonight
Track Name: A Trouble Shared is a Trouble Halved
I knew that things were never right
When we drove home that winter night
I took it slow so we could talk
To try and share those hidden thoughts
I only want to see you happy
I only want to hear you sing
I want to look you in the eye
And see what our future brings


A trouble shared is a trouble halved
When did we let things get so hard?
It’s not a picture worth a frame
There’s no-one else who we can blame


We used to glow and look so bright
But now we’ve lost too many fights
Please open up and let me in
Let us sit down and share this hymn
I only want to see you happy
I only want to hear you sing
I want to look you in the eye
And see what our future brings

It’s not the end
Let’s just pretend
I did it all for you
That’s all we can do
Track Name: Life Hold On
Been waiting for a change too long
Signs of age are showing
There’s another fork in the road
Don’t know where you’re going
Or where you are, hope it's not far

Tell life to hold on, hold on, hold on
That is your life passing you by
Tell life to hold on, hold on, hold on
Now that it’s gone, you’ve realised
Don’t waste your time, don’t close your eyes

Wondering what it’s all about
Without ever knowing
Just another stab in the dark
Don’t know where you’re going
Or where you are, hope it's not far

I’m looking at the clocks in town
Watching people figure out what their life’s all about
Two people try to be as one
Feels like hours but a years gone
Tell life to hold on
Track Name: Where Secrets Lie
I can read it in your eyes
So full of fear, so full of pride
I can feel it deep inside

No, I can’t see behind your smile
Like many people god knows I’ve tried
I can’t read what’s on your mind

Hidden truths between the both of us
Secrets lie and I know because…

I’ve had enough of masquerades
They are double sensed and ready-made
And it’s the clever words you hide
In the place where secrets lie

I never want to hear goodbye
Don’t hold back tears you try to hide
I know the secrets you keep inside
Track Name: Weathered
An old weathered man
Sitting in the rain
Looking up at thunder
Expressions of pain
He lost his son
To the mouth of a gun
Lost in thought
To what he might have become

An innocent boy
Behind a window pane
Asks his Grandmother
For the rainbow again
He lost his mum
To a place in the sun
Lost in thought
To what it was he had done

No, you can’t go back
You can’t change the weather
Just focus your thoughts
On your next endeavour

That old man's son
who gave up half way
And that young boys mum
who gave in to the game
We've all lost someone
To what life has become
Lost in thought
To what we could have done

It's too late now
We can't change the weather
Stop wondering why
This will be forever
