Track Name: Beautiful Monday
Beautiful Monday

Some people say the week’s too long
The weekend sunshine always gone

You know it rained on Friday
Was cold the whole night through
But there’s a brand new light babe
And it’s shining for you

It's a Beautiful Monday

Some people say don’t hope too hard
Tie up your pipe-dreams in the yard

Don’t try and it can’t hurt you
You’re safe the whole night through
But there’s a brand new fight babe
And it’s spoiling for you

It's a Beautiful Monday
Track Name: I Won't Get In Your Way
I know it was all my fault
I should have known what to say
But I wont do it next time
I wont get in your way
No I wont get in your way
Again

It happened again
But its not what it seems
You’re still the man I fell for
You’re still the man of my dreams
I just wont get in your way
Again

I’ll just ignore the bruises
You’ve left inside and out
Sweep up the broken glass
I won’t scream and shout
I wont try to run away
Coz I know we’ll work it out
I won’t cry out loud
That’s not what love’s about

I know you didn’t mean it
You would never raise your hand
It was just the drink that was talking
You work hard, I understand
And I wont get in your way
Again

But I couldn’t leave now if I wanted to
Coz you’ve taken all I had
My friends, my home, my heart, my soul,
Made me see I’m bad
Even if I wanted to
I’ve got nowhere to go
I’ll just turn the other cheek
Coz we’ll work it out, I know

I know you mean it this time
Though you’ve promise me before
Every day you don’t have fists for me
I love you a little more
And I wont get in your way
No I wont get in your way
Track Name: Sapphire Tears
I know you’re hurting
And I know you don’t want to say it out loud
But you don’t have to be the tower of strength
You don’t have to be so proud

When you’re shattered like lead crystal
Into a thousand pieces, know
That I’d hold them in my palm
And I won’t let go

Let me be there when you’re backed up to the wall
Let me be there when you’re trying to make sense of it all
Let me be there to cry sapphire tears for you
You don’t have to do it all alone
You’re never on your own

We’ve run a long road together
From the playground when we were six years old
We’ve shared our stormy weather
You’ve been my log fire in the freezing cold

When the cruel labyrinth tangles
Into a thousand tunnels, know
That I’ll pace right beside you
And I won’t let go

Let me be there when the rain starts to fall
Let me be there when you’re trying to make sense of it all
Let me be there to cry sapphire tears for you
You don’t have to do it all alone
You’re never on your own
Track Name: Mahogany Radio
Mahogany Radio

We used to listen to vinyl on the Mahogany Radio
He’d talk and I would listen about the things that I should know
Once he told me a story about a picture of the queen
And that Mahogany Radio was a comfort in my teens

I took that comfort with me as twice I packed my bags
Spent time in places with lions and dragon on their flags
And when it seemed that homewards was the last way I would go
I had the music inside me from the Mahogany Radio

At times the world has been tuneless
Blowing the gale of the fight
Now I’m tuned in to radio hopeful
And I know it will be all right

The years skip by into adulthood and the winds become less wild
Thrice I returned to the lion, and each time felt like a child
But at home with the vinyl playing, no end to what he would give
Those nights with Mahogany Radio taught me how to live

That mahogany radio taught me how to live
Track Name: Shelter From The Storm
Shelter From The Storm (for Isobelle)

The first time your Mother heard you laughing
The first time your Daddy saw you cry
Open up your eyes and see the sunshine
We dreamed of all the things you’d every try

And we’ll do our best to shelter you from every storm
Wrap you up and keep you safe and warm
Show you all the love and strength and courage
That arrived the day that you were born

Each time a cloud becomes a castle
Each time you learn something new
Every time your soul is touched with wonder
Our hearts and souls will be touched too

And on those days when the sun won’t shine
We’ll be on our way, put your hand in mine

And we’ll do our best to shelter you from every storm
Wrap you up and keep you safe and warm
Show you all the love and strength and courage
That arrived the day that you were born
Track Name: The Heron
The Heron

The heron stood and he looked at me
Began to fly away
Then he said ‘come follow me’
So I spread my wings
And flew from the nest
In my tree

Fly
Fly
Wait for me
In the sky

So we flew over the lake
At Kandalama
And I saw my life anew
And the heron he saw me smile
Told me ‘you can fly
You don’t need my wings
You just need you, and yours’

So fly
Fly
Don’t wait for me
I’ll meet you in the sky

So when my heron
Flies through my mind
I have to know that I am brave
I’ll make it home
And the feeling that I’m alone fly away
Track Name: Mister Merchandise
Mister Merchandise

Mr. Merchandise is on every street, if you got
Somethin’ to trade then he’ll be there to greet
Even if you haven’t he’ll give it all he’s got
And you’ll end up buying something if you like it or not

Mr Merchandise he does it so well
Mr Merchandise and his hard sell
He’d get you to buy a snowball
If you were en route to hell
Mr. Merchandise

Mr. Merchandise can get you a watch
Talk you into purchasing a kick in the crotch
He’ll tell you there’s a refund, money back guarantee
But instead you go to China with a sack of his tea

He sells the snow to Eskimos, he sells tartan paint
Once he even sold good will to a saint
You wanna trade your soul, he’ll quote you a price
He’s Mr. Merchandise
Track Name: The Windmill
The Windmill

In her hair she wore a crown of cornflowers,
And the windmill was her home
She had been kissed, but only by a thistle
And been loved by a stone
She dreamed of black water on silver shores
She’d walk with her lover, someone she’d adore
But after half a million tick-tocks more, coz
No one can make time stand still

At the inn his ale tasted dirty
And his knife and fork were cold
He wonders what’s the point of being happy
With a soul that’s tired and old
He dusted the rust from her wedding ring
No day in the church, no anthem to sing
He spent half a million hours aching, but
No one can make time stand still

When sunset came he strolled up to the windmill
And he saw her in the light
Instantly his heart forgot its torment
And as the day became the night
He stepped forward and reached out his arm
To see just a corn dolly rest in his palm
If life is the storm maybe love is the calm
No one can make time stand still
Track Name: The End Of The Road
So here we stand at the end of the road
There's no light and it's cold
But you know that I have to say goodbye
But I'll remember our time for the rest of my life..

So you go your way and I go mine
There's no hope and no time
But the day that I knew I had to cry
You said things have changed and so have I

Now everything's changed forever
And so have I
Track Name: Strangers
Strangers

All the time I wished away made me say
I would only sing for strangers
All the tears I wiped away, everyday made me say
That I’d only sing for strangers

I know why you hate me
Why you look at me and ask who
It’s coz you hate yourself
And you think I’m a reflection of you
Reflection of you

All the time I wished away made me say
I would only sing for strangers
Even though I’m far away you will stay close to me
Coz we’re not strangers

I know why you forgot me
Why you think of me and ask who
It’s coz you forget yourself
And you think I’m a reflection of you
Reflection of you

All the things we left unsaid
All the things floating in our heads
You would have known what to do with me
You would have known if you could see
This is the inside of me

You never saw me inside
