Track Name: Home
Back again to the place I was born
I will always return however far I roam
Lighting in the distance a coming storm
But our future's planted here safe and warm

I drift at sea there is no rest for me
Forever I follow eternally
A life lived always leaving always moving on
It's a struggle to survive I must stay strong

Something brings me back to this place
I could never forget it
Printed in the back of my mind until the end of time

The odds are long I am one in a thousand
I carry the torch for brothers and sisters
I'm scared of the day I will die alone
This could be the last time that I make it home

I persist in pursuing the place I call home
Many years will pass on the path that I pace alone
To all those who set off never to return
I will shoulder the burden bear it on my own

When you first open your eyes I will have gone
How I wish I could watch over you all alone
I will live on in you maybe one day we will meet
Perhaps our paths may cross right here on this beach
Track Name: Not My Time
Frozen heart
Frozen earth
Life locked away
Still I search
Time stands still
When I am safe and warm
Never leave this place again
Drift off in a dream free of pain

I am slowing down
Vision greying out
Can't think straight
About the risks I take
Can't catch my breath
The world is spinning
The next generation could be ending
When it's only just beginning

This is not my time to go
I will keep on fighting
I will keep on trying
I'll be back for more
I'm built for a battle
The odds to win maybe slim
But I've got a family counting on me

Tracing back
Strayed too far from home
I must return
I left you all alone
Bringing back
I'll give it all up just for you
Surely spring is slowly coming
If we can just make it through

I made up my mind
If my body would just agree
I will need all my strength
Every last joule of energy
My muscles maybe consumed
Wasting all away
Hold on for me I'll hold on for you
Surely it's coming a brighter day
Track Name: Torn Apart
Tossed around in the waves
I reach for home
I've never found better days
Restlessly I roam

Stumbled into a space so safe, so calm
No push and pull so I will stay still
Nowhere to go I will sit wait
All the time I need to plan my escape

You can bide your time it's fine
No rush I can see you are lost
No place to call home
The tide is low but soon rolls back
Time is ticking away cannot change that fact

Nothing lasts forever
Stay safe from the storm
Soon I must be leaving
As we are thrust together
So we are torn apart

Hang on the every moment
I'll hold on the best I can
I may delay being washed away
As we cling together
So we are torn apart

Tossed around in the waves
I reach for home
I've never found better days
Restlessly I roam
Track Name: Time Stands Still
The home that we built together
This family we owe our start
The land we love where we grew up
Will never be the same because

Gather close around you
Protect the ones you love
Tightly knit family unit
Will never be the same because

Time stands still in this moment
I couldn't leave your side even if I tried
Part of you is gone yet I still remember
You will always be there when I close my eyes

Take time to remember
We will stand as your honour guard
Life has got better because
Of all your have done for us

We will keep on in your absence
We will tread where you once stood
Your space is filled but I miss you still
We had so much left to do

The darkness now is lifting
We turn toward the sky
Spread our wings, new life begins
A future for you and I
Track Name: Turn With The Tide
Drawing circles in the sand
A picture to make you understand
I have been waiting and you're long overdue
It's all been in vain without you

In this big wide world I'm so small
Why would you notice me at all
You might pass me by
I need something to catch your eye

Washed away
It's now or never don't make me wait
Here comes the tide
Another year to kiss goodbye

But I'm keeping my hope alive that my
fortune may turn with the tide
I'm still waiting here
Maybe I will see you next year
Track Name: Like Your Shadow
You gave me all you had
Everything I know is thanks to your guiding hand
I was like your shadow
I thought I would never let you go

You always took care of me
Defended and expended all of your energy
On that day I knew I had to run
No time for goodbye
When I looked back you were gone

I still sense you all around me
The marks you made are met with memories
I live a life so solitary
Will you still remember

Often do I think of you
The years we had when for me the world was new
I was like your shadow
I thought I would never let you go

We had to part go our separate ways
I thought things would never ever change
On that day I knew I had to run
No time for goodbye
When I looked back you were gone

I still sense you all around me
The marks you made are met with memories
I live a life so solitary
Will you still remember me

I'm still looking for you
I was like your shadow
Track Name: Side By Side
You and I watch the world go by
We are stuck here side by side
Lives that are truly intertwined
I will provide I will be your guide
I know that I can rely on you
Without you I will die
I'm sticking close by you
I'm yours and you're mine

If we were ever torn apart
I cannot comprehend making a brand new start
We are so close we exist as one
You are my whole world
You truly are to me
My body and my soul

You and me back here again
We will be together until the end
Sometimes we are seen as one
No-one truly understands our bond

I hate it when people say
I'm only here for what I can take away
I would not want you to think
I could live without you
Surely I would sink
I know that I can rely on you
Without you I will die
I'm sticking close by you
I'm yours and you're mine
Track Name: Whileaway
I Slept through the winter and the springtime too
I was drowsy in the autumn and I felt like a snooze
It's still snowy in the summer but I've too much to do
Shake myself awake I must make my move

I dreamt of you in that long cold night
Underneath the earth I dreamt I might
Now I step out blinking into the light
If we're going to get together then time is tight

Lay your head down next to me
You and I could be so cosy
Whileaway those winter months
Wake up when the blue skies are here again

Dozed in the daytime oh how the time flew
The days are getting shorter with no sign of you
I'm sending all the right signals what else could I do?
This could be my last chance to make it through

Dreaming of you so far away
Maybe I'll lie next to you one of these days
I'll shiver no more right through the night
If we're going to get together then time is tight
Track Name: Time Stands Still
The home that we built together
This family we owe our start
The land we love where we grew up
Will never be the same because

Gather close around you
Protect the ones you love
Tightly knit family unit
Will never be the same because

Time stands still in this moment
I couldn't leave your side even if I tried
Part of you is gone yet I still remember
You will always be there when I close my eyes

Take time to remember
We will stand as your honour guard
Life has got better because
Of all your have done for us

We will keep on in your absence
We will tread where you once stood
Your space is filled but I miss you still
We had so much left to do

The darkness now is lifting
We turn toward the sky
Spread our wings, new life begins
A future for you and I
