Track Name: Sugar One
SUGAR ONE

Sugar one comes over
all sweet and innocent
Sugar One - when we made love
love wasn’t what he meant.
Sugar One - with thorns like a wild red rose
Sugar One - pulls me in then lets me go...

and I ask myself; Why why why?
Sugar One just past me by,
like a stranger’s afterthought -
tells me what I can and can have not.....

Sugar One - wish you could save me
from this full full moon
Sugar One - wish you could take
me from this cold empty room
Sugar One - in the heat of the night
turns on the flame and puts out the light

Sugar One -Sugar One - Sugar One

and I ask myself; Why why why?
Sugar One just past me by,
like a stranger’s afterthought -
tells me what I can and can have not.....

Sugar One comes over

Sugar One just past me by,

Track Name: Change of Heart
CHANGE OF HEART

I've thrown everything away
all the pictures and the mobile
turning round and round
I've got rid of what I'd lose in any case
all your addresses and writings on the wall

I've changed my mind about you
I don't wanna be pleasant and polite
I've had a change of heart - it's true
I don't ever want to see you
in the day or in the night

when the stars are out
when the sky is bright
when the stars are out
when the sky is bright

I've thrown everything away
all the pictures and the mobile
turning round and round
I've got rid of what I'd lose in any case
all your addresses and writings on the wall

when the stars are out
when the sky is bright
when the stars are out
when the sky is bright
Track Name: Let Me Fall
LET ME FALL

I don’t remember, don’t remember
where I was
don’t remember, don’t remember
when it all began
just one hour in a moment
is all I can recall
and the moment in an instant
let me fall
in the autumn of the last year
I don’t remember......ahhhhhhhhhhh

Did I want you? Don’t remember...
Did you want me? I don’t remember...
Fill your head up with bright coloured painted lovers
racing forward - open upward in a soft golden haze
don’t remember. don’t remember....
Reach out.............embrace

I don’t remember, don’t remember
where I was
I don’t remember, don’t remember
when it all began
just one hour in a moment
is all I can recall
and the moment in an instant
let me fall...
Track Name: A Door
A DOOR

When you come round to your hard excuses
and carefully controlled capsize uses
you’ll see, you’ll see...
you’ll see you’ll see...a...door!

When you look back
at the shadow figures
all resting on your trigger finger

you’ll see, you’ll see...
you’ll see, you’ll see
you’ll see a...door!

When the glasses are empty
like the thoughts in your mind
You’ll see what you have left
You’ll see what you’ve left behind

you’ll see, you’ll see...
you’ll see, you’ll see
you’ll see... a...door!

I am standing in front
of a locked door
you can see what I’m standing here for
you’ll see, you’ll see...you’ll see you’ll see...a door!

When you come round to your hard excuses
and carefully controlled capsize uses
you’ll see a place where time has no meaning
you’ll see you’ll see.......

you’ll see, you’ll see...
you’ll see, you’ll see...
you’ll see, you’ll see...
a door!
Track Name: I Am a Wave
I AM A WAVE

See... I am a wave
I will rise and fall
pulled by the moon
shining on you

See... I am a wave
I wise rise and fall on you
lifting my way through
see I am a deep deep well
I am as big as the ocean
small as a shell
trying to touch the sand
before I return again

and I’m trying to breathe some life into my own
trying to understand what I’ve been shown

See I am an anemone
stretching my arms out
in the salty sea

See...I can float on the surface
or sink like a heavy stone
I am a wave and I can rise and fall
with you or alone

and I’m trying to breathe some life into my own
trying to understand what I’ve been shown

See... I am a wave
I will rise and fall
pulled by the moon
shining on you.....
Track Name: Love Doesn't Know When
LOVE DOESN’T KNOW WHEN

When I wake up and open my eyes
I see the light shine softly
on my back brick wall
like a slide, like a light
that turns off... and on again

There's too much grey and too much white
I miss the blue up above
I miss the blue of your eyes
and when I wake up
I hear myself say,
"who am I, who am I, who am I?"

I'd like to find the tall trees
and green fields you wrote about
and I thought you forgot -
but you came through
like a slide, like a light
that turns off...and on again

‘cause love doesn't know when,
love doesn't know when
love doesn't know when
we turn back into friends
like a slide, like a light
that turns off... and on again

When I wake up and open my eyes
I see the light shine softly
on my back brick wall
like a slide, like a light
that turns off... and on again

‘cause love doesn't know when,
love doesn't know when,
love doesn't know when,
love doesn't know......when..............
Track Name: Unloving Lover
UNLOVING LOVER

I repeat this pattern again
recover: I don’t know when...
I tell you the truth - you ignore me
tell you my pain - you won’t believe
I’ve had my fair share of lovers
now you can join my memories undercover
I’d been convinced that this was real love
Now I know better...

Unloving Lover
pushed me to this
add to the box
marked reminisce
Unloving Lover
dissolved reality
Unloving Lover
pulled the heart out of me

You turn on me
like something wounded
tell me all my fears are unfounded
terrify me with switched identity
deny any comfort your love could be
I’ve had my fair share of lovers
now you can join my memories undercover
I’d been convinced that this was real love
Now I know better...

Unloving Lover
pushed me to this
add to the box
marked reminisce
Unloving Lover
dissolved reality
Unloving Lover
pulled the heart out of me


So I repeat this pattern again
recover: I don’t know when...
I tell you the truth - you ignore me
tell you my pain - you won’t believe
I’ve had my fair share of lovers
now you can join my memories undercover
I’d been convinced that this was real love
Now I know better...

Unloving Lover
pushed me to this
add to the box
marked reminisce
Unloving Lover
dissolved reality
Unloving Lover
pulled the heart out of me

Unloving Lover
pushed me to this
add to the box
marked reminisce
Unloving Lover
dissolved reality
Unloving Lover
love was only
what I imagined it could be....
Track Name: It's Not Raining Rain
IT’S NOT RAINING RAIN

It’s not raining rain to me
it’s raining daffodils
In every dimpled drop I see
wild flowers on the hills
the clouds of grey engulf the day
and overwhelm the town
it’s not raining rain to me
it’s raining roses down
it’s not raining rain to me......

It’s not raining rain to me
but fields of clover bloom
where any bucaneering bee
can find a bed and room
a health unto the happy
a fig for him who frets
it’s not raining rain to me
it’s raining violets
it’s not raining rain to me...

It’s not raining rain to me
it’s raining daffodils
In every dimpled drop I see
wild flowers on the hills
the clouds of grey engulf the day
and overwhelm the town
it’s not raining rain to me
it’s raining roses down
it’s not raining rain to me...
it’s raining roses down
it’s not raining rain to me......
Track Name: Say Hello
SAY HELLO

If you feel like my friend
feel like my friend
won’t you say hello
say hello
I got something’ to show you
I got my heart in my hands, oh.....mmmmm

It was a long time ago
now maybe longer than you’ll know
we walked so close to the river’s edge
and it felt like love
and it felt like friendship

sometimes the river runs high
sometimes it overflows
and if I didn’t try
I’d never know, never know...

If you feel like my friend
feel like my friend
won’t you say hello
say hello
I got something’ to show you
I got my heart in my hands, oh.....mmmmm

sometimes the river runs high
sometimes it overflows
and if I didn’t try
I’d never know, never know...
You’d never know.......

If you feel like my friend
feel like my friend
won’t you say hello
say hello
I got something’ to show you
I got my heart in my hands, oh.....mmmmm
Track Name: Paul Robeson
PAUL ROBESON

Paul Robeson in the middle of a war
with love in his heart...

In the middle of a war Paul Robeson
before the Second World War in a small
town in Spain where the bullets flew and fell like rain

In the middle of a war Paul Robeson
with microphone and speakers in the air
sending his beautiful voice everywhere

Paul Robeson in the middle of a war
singing "Ol’ Man River" in the middle of a war
and the guns stopped ringing in the middle of a war
yeah the guns stopped killing

Paul Robeson with a silence all around
singing about injustice
and who is to blame when we are all equal
to God we're all the same...
I hope to God ...we're all the same.

Paul Robeson in the middle of a war
I think of you when I feel so pulled apart
when all I'm doing is what I believe in my heart

Paul Robeson reminds me to be
a human being with individuality
In the middle of a war
if that's how it has to be...

Paul Robeson in the middle of a war
with love in his heart.
Track Name: Red Fire
RED FIRE

Strange passenger
roaming my insides
make-believe nights
are arriving like fireflies

There are walls without reason
dire Sirens call
this colder season
is making no sense at all

Red Fire, Red Fire
I said good-bye
Red Fire, Red Fire
said good-bye

He was looking in on me
like a questioning clock
Rejecting time exists to be
So I stand and I knock and I knock

Who's there? Red Fire; said good-bye
Who's there? Red Fire; said good-bye

Change is one moment,
rearranged if I try to be true
See a face on the pavement
see I don't need you

Red Fire, Red Fire; I said good-bye
Red Fire, Red Fire; said good-bye

I see the fire - see the rain
but you must bring that fire back again and again.....

All the lights have vanished
making sorry's repeat
fear of the damage - fear forgetting to be:

Red Fire, Red Fire; I said good-bye (repeat x 4)
