Track Name: I'll Go Your Way
I like to splash through
The puddles in spring
Roll down the windows and
Go for a spin
But I’ll go your way
Just for the day

You like to sit in the outdoor cafes
I like to wonder down the
Champs Elysees
But I’ll go your way
Just for the day

The Mona Lisa
Will just have to wait
The Dolce Vita is
Right at our gate

You like to sleep handsomely
In the buff
I like to cuddle under
Plenty of the bed stuff

But I’ll go your way
Just for the day

You like to eat fancy peas in the pod
I like my chips and my beer battered cod
But I’ll go your way

The Mona Lisa will just have to wait
La Dolce Vita is right on our plates

You like to sleep handsomely in the buff
I like cuddle under plenty of the
bed stuff

But I’ll go your way
I will go your way
I will go your way
Just for the day
Track Name: Dreamer
Another blinding sun is on the way
Chasing off another reverie, But I need
Just a moment more to linger languidly, remembering
All the lovely things that happen here

Don’t wake me up yet, I’m a dreamer
And I need to dream up a plan
Figure out how to get you in my life
and out of Neverland

Imagination is my only friend
whom I depend
he gently rocks me back to sleep
when I can’t breathe
And when the pictures fade between my eyes
I realize
That life is always better in my dreams

Don’t wake me up yet, I’m a dreamer
And I need to dream up a plan
Figure out how to get you in my life
and out of Neverland

Imagination is my only friend
whom I depend
he gently rocks me back to sleep
when I can’t breathe
And when the pictures fade between my eyes
I realize
That life is always better in my dreams

Don’t wake me up yet, I’m a dreamer
And I need to dream up a plan
Figure out how to get you in my life
and out of Neverland
and out of Neverland
and out of Neverland!
oooh ooh oooh ooh……
Track Name: What About Wool Wishbags
Who her, Layla n Lionel with no clothes on, they
Lie, like lions, on a steamboat wave
Oooo, oooo, ooo, ooo Ooooo dit daa
it's cold today

Oooo waaaayy, storms ahead and still she says:


Bottled wine, in the garden wit me, see that God pour that wine over me
baby doll, if it's good, then put it through me, eeeee!

Layla, you ain't gonna find it in a
Pale of, slow movin riot, better
Wake up! or we'll have a princess die in the pool.


And all her stories she got movin troubled rollin pages
It's getting darker to get through oo, oo, oo, oo but
She wants the stories, and its dryin up in story land thanks, and
To the story man, who troubles breeeeewwww

By the wine, dripping honey on it,
Ain't together, but he's still holdin on you
For the moment, you find your feet,
Try to walk away, Layla try to be free oo oo ooo..!

Moonshine lovers, dead end alleys, leanin over in the shade, but
Oh lights on, and the sirens call again,
Oh no for no more blue skiieess
Oooo oo oo oo ooo dit da, its cold today
Ooooooo waayyy, storms ahead and still she says


I, Heard, someone coming in today
A party I, am a fan, as most would say
I, I, I got a lot to say,
Bored rhythm and I keep waiting for it to change,


Bottled wine, in the garden wit me, see that god pour that wine over me
Baby doll, if it's good, then put it through me, eeeee, X2

Layla, you ain't gonna find it in a
Pale of, slow movin riot, better
Wake up! or we'll have a princess die in the pool.
Layla, you ain't gonna find it in a
Pale of, slow movin riot, better
Wake up! or we'll have a princess die in the pool.
Track Name: Cool Cool Water
Soul's on fire you've got nowhere to hide
You're gonna sink in quicksand
Cause' your rivers' running dry
Hands are burning, heart is aching and your mind's
Insane
Cause' your love's a burnin' flame

Drag your burnin feet and
Bring your restless soul to
Cool Cool water for the river runs dry
Heed my lesson I said
Heed my warning you need
Cool cool water for the river runs dry

I'll bring you water and I'll feed your love
All you gotta do is make your way up to the Bay
Come and draw your fill I'll lead the way
Never mind what's burning underneath the sand

(Guitar Solo)

Drag your burnin feet and
Bring your restless soul to
Cool Cool water for the river runs dry
Heed my lesson I said
Heed my warning you need
Cool cool water for the river runs dry

Oh! You think you've lost your way
But child just lift your dreary eyes
and I'll show you the way
I know you're tired but you gotta keep on
Come and drink the water theirs no more
Rain left to fall

Drag your burnin feet and
Bring your restless soul to
Cool Cool water for the river runs dry
Heed my lesson I said
Heed my warning you need
Cool cool water for the river runs dry
Cool cool water for the river runs dry
Cool cool water for the river runs dry
Track Name: So Nice To Talk To
Boo ah Boo ah boo ay
Boo ah boo ayy
Booh ah booh ah boo ay
Booh ah booy aayy


Let me take you by the hand
I’m on the way to meet a friend
Maybe we could share a cab together.


Theres no harm in pryin
Underneath his gaze,
Got some time to try and find
If we could escapade together

Let me fly you to the moon
Well I had plans this afternoon
But maybe we could spend the day together

I think that you're the most beautiful girl,
I think that you're the most curious boy

Ba ba da ba da, ba dup ba dup ba
Ba da ba dah Bap da dup bad dup ba gahhhh.


Boo ah Boo ah boo ay
Boo ah boo ayy
Booh ah booh ah boo ay
Booh ah booy aayy

I'd love to hold you close tonight
I guess my boyfriend wouldn't mind
He'll take the front and I will take behind!
Track Name: Boy Adventure
I was a fool to climb aboard
That old runaway train
But like a rampant funhouse fan
I had to see the world
Faster than I could spin

So I headed for adventure and I
Crashed straight into love
You were headed for me
Like a comet from above
And as the sirens sounded
We both sped into the night
I had my boy adventure by my side

Chorus:

Now in retrospect
I would do it all again
( like I did like I did)

why should I regret
the shape of who I am
(I like it I like it)

We learn to walk up tall by tripping on our feet, so I say
You ain't wise until you been a fool
And I'm not sorry

Now in retrospect,
I would do it all again
(Like I did, like I did)


Blah blah blah blah....

Verse:
Spring turned into summer
And the rides turned into rust
And all my little treasures sank in thick and filthy dust
The one I called my one and only called me one of many
And I rode that train to winter where I'd lie.

Chorus:
Now in retrospect
I would do it all again
(like I did like I did)

Why should I regret
The shape of who I am
(I like it I like it)

Now in retrospect
I would do it all again
( like I did like I did)

Why should I regret
The shape of who I am

Now in retrospect
I would do it all again
Track Name: And Nothing Else
From, I can tell, I’m not the kind of girl that likes to wait up
I’m on the water with my sails up
And you’re on the bottom looking nowhere

Somethings the matter in the mist
All the little things that no one cares about
All that wasted time I spent
joining in the rattles of your life

Chorus:
Ooooo, right or wrong
I am gone
Got the record rolling
Go where i go
And thats all, and then nothing else

I'm gonna sprawl
And thats all
Got the record rolling
Go where i go
And thats all, and then nothing else.

Verse:
Overly drawn, I’m just a garden with some mud
I’m trying to hide the fact that I can’t stand you
Taking everything i've ever grown

Should you look for me in the flood
You better shout cuz i'll be far
And this is what I hear
So this is what you’ll get
And nothing else will all be heard!

Chorus:
Ooooo, right or wrong
I am gone
Got the record rolling
Go where i go,
And thats all, and then nothing else

I'm gonna sprawl
And thats all
Got the record rolling
Go, where i go,
And thats all, and then nothing else

Bridge:
Right or wrong, i'm gone
i let you go
back down the road

I'm gonna roll, gonna roll
Gonna go where I want to
And thats all and nothin else

Right or wrong, i'm gone
i let you go
back down the road

I'm gonna roll, gonna roll
Gonna go where I want to
And thats all and nothin else.
Track Name: Spiders Kiss
Chorus:
Its' been a while,
To be in love,
Or see my love,
With me

Verse:
I am alive
Lonely I've arrived
Darkness sits in paradise
Hungrier on colder nights
I know
The folded bell
Still I hear it ring
Echoing a song it sung,
A souvenir of spring

Chorus:
Its' been a while,
To be in love,
Or see my love,
With me

Verse:
Call and then I,
Hope for star-light
I pour out into the night,
Flooding her with my plight
And I know
This is right
In the brazen sky
Neither day, neither night
This twilight burns my eyes

Chorus:
Its' been a while,
To be in love
Or see my love
With me

Bridge:
My old bones, of figurine stones
But I'm growing a new song
The bell starts unfolding
Track Name: Little Boats
Drifting along
Just me and the stream
Current pulls me
Wherever it wants me,
I'm just a leaf gone astray
From my tree

My missed life
Passed me by
In little boats
I never knew
That little leaves like me
Knew how to float
But I blew free
And now I'm drifting

Chorus
Oh, I don't know
(don't know) But I like to believe
Theres more for me this way
I could drift all day
With my head above the water
No matter how far I stray

I'll see the sea
Swim to heaven,
Float
Right on in
And I'll be passing by
in my little boat
With little leaves like me Oh!

Chorus:

I don't know
(don't know)
But I like to believe
Theres more for me this way
I could drift all day
With my head above the water
No matter how far I stray

So won't you take me away.....

Chorus 2x
Track Name: Silly Lion
Daylight and the weather gets hotter
Wind sneaks through my window pane
Teasing me awake

Daytime brings the loveliest sunshine
I smile and watch the coloured rays
Dance across his face

Chorus:
Even though i'm just a silly lion
I know i'm lying right next to a snake
Somethings gonna change within our natures
He won't bite
He tells me everyday

Verse:
Sweet perfume lingers on my pillow
(Your breath upon my shoulder)
Sends me into space
He and me
Tangled up dreamily
I can't escape so I sink
Into his warm embrace

Chorus:
Even though I'm just a silly lion
I know i'm lying right next to a snake
Somethings gonna change within our natures
He won't bite
He tells me everyday

Bridge:
And we dance and we dance and we spin on heavens hand
And stand aside for breath
And we pound and we pound and we bang on our drums
Then hold our hands for a break

Chorus:
Even though I'm just a silly lion
I know i'm lying right next to a snake
Somethings gonna change within our natures
He won't bite
He tells me everyday
Track Name: We Smile
As the morning blooms
Sunshine fills this room
And the shadows
Fade to light
I can see your face
Your dreams erase
You smile

That mischievous grin
As you cuff my chin
Cuz my hair
Overnight
Has wound around the crown
Like an ice cream cone
I frown

Nobody captures the stars
Like we do when we're
In Love
I'm all aglow in your arms
As we glide towards the earth

The alarm bell sounds
And I steal the shower
You make coffee
While I gloat
But the water burns
You hear me curse
We Smile
