Track Name: Dreaming Drowning
Long drives down motorways to the next town
Myself to blame why I feel so run down
I can feel myself waiting
To believe in creating

All these days should be mine
I have to work through the night

Pack up your tent while it is still raining
Soaked to the bone but no ones complaining
I can feel myself waiting
To believe in creating

All these days should be mine
I have to work through the night

Keeping a lover far at the side
No one can hide
Feelings of mind, they come from the heart
We owe them so kind

You have a hold on me
Yes, you a lover were so good to me

Should I sail away?
Would I sail away?
Could I sail away?
Should I sail away?
Track Name: Autumn Song
Did I believe the sun could leave
With air and gold so fine to breathe
And hold on an autumn eve

With wind betrayed to call her name
The sound, the fall of a dying flame
It moved on all the same

And you my friend were with me then sat on a hay bale
I know we started out as friends but could a love sail in
And cause us to spin
Through the gaze of our eyes in the time of a day
Turn to month, turn to year in a haze

Under stars we lay I wonder how to say
That I would never be the same
Loving you would move my heart to a framed warmth in camp fire flame

The songs we sung made the cold undone
And friends around we howl the sound
through the forest and the fields that surround

And you my friend were with me then sat on a hay bale
I know we started out as friends but could a love sail in
And cause us to spin
Through the gaze of our eyes in the time of a day
Turn to month, turn to year in a haze

Under stars we lay I wonder how to say
That I would never be the same
Loving you would move my heart to a framed warmth in camp fire flame
Track Name: Benny Boy
Benny boy sailing home
Do you know there's a storm?
And it brewed from a love that was there
For no one but her own sweet, selfish ways

Benny boy on your own
What's the score now your home?
While the other two sleep in the room next to you
And you hear them all night long

Benny boy don't you cry
You have friends, you'll get by
And the girl that was part of your world
And has been on your mind will fade away
Track Name: Bristol
If I came to Bristol would it be alright
If you showed me about the place and take me for a ride
You put me up for a while

I don't mind if love falls through
I just want to know you

I have thought of you a couple times and more
The sweetest love I ever could adore
And you say you've thought of me

I don't mind if love falls through
I just want to know you

Our time was so short but oh, was so fine
I just want to live those days again but this time
I'd stay to say goodbye

I don't mind if love falls through
I just want to know you
Track Name: Brother Of Mine
Dreaming brother of mine
How did you find your life so defined
By doctors and borders? Did you fly too high?
Brother of mine

No I won't lie for your side I am by and bound
Please don't try to hide and shy
Who you are inside
Brother of mine

Smoking cigarettes you stay the same
Talk on things I knew would never change
I don't know you any other way
And I wouldn't dream to even try

Yes I know they annoy to aggravation
But it's our mother, father, sister, brother
They would never run, never hide
To show their pride
Brother of mine
Track Name: Avenue Green
Sunday mornings tend to be the same
Never so lucky how now I'll be in no pain
From a night of sweetest joy you bring
How I fall into this deepest sleep I'm in

Now you see me will you call my name
Will you pause and let us hold this perfect frame
Songs through coldest night, we both can sing
Will you stay till lucid dreams come rushing in

Walking home through the stone
Roam to Rome, frosted bite we tread slow
Guided light, glowing bright
Holding hands with avenue green at night

Love will play it's part to spare a load
Trees that fall in line to guide us on the road
Minding numbness that I feel within
Your kiss so sweet clears the pain that should have been

Walking home through the stone
Roam to Rome, frosted bite we tread slow
Guided light, glowing bright
Holding hands with avenue green at night
Track Name: Still Here Dreaming
You were my lover almost three years ago
And my heart, still for you, beats the same
You've found another, I know, and you hold him close
And you have long since forgotten my name

Oh darlin' of mine I need some help to find the time
To be a lover for somebody new
It's been a long time since you have been here in my arms
And yet I'm still here dreaming of you

I feel so lonesome whenever I see your smile
As I know it could never be mine
And as your living so far from where we once were
It's as though you now think us a crime

Oh darlin' of mine I need some help to find the time
To be a lover for somebody new
It's been a long time since you have been here in my arms
And yet I'm still here dreaming of you
Track Name: How High The Mountain
How high the mountain
How high the air
With you my darling
Together we share

And I will hold you close and I won't let go
So we won't fall down, down below

The sun has fallen
From the summer glow
The night sky she finds us
So far away from home

But for the stars, the moon, the sky, I'll never find
Such a perfect moment, my darling and I

With two tea lights shining
One for you, one for me
We both make this heaven
For only us to see

And as we watch the world go by in our city of gold
we huddle close together to save from the cold
Track Name: Run On
Cold morning air
These walks we share
Together we are two of a pair

I watched you grow
Through summers and snow
From one day old, so long ago

Run on my love across the fields
You gave us a joy that lasted years

Walks down the lane
Never feel the same
As though the sky, it starts to rain

And as I come home
Just to be alone
A friend in need has already flown

Run on my love across the fields
You gave us a joy that lasted years
Track Name: Through The Winter
Summer moves along and it brings the rain
Walking out the door it's always the same

And as my eyes close, that's when my heart shows
We were together, now only God knows
If I'll make it through the winter

Red sky at dawn, no end to a storm
Telling me of love, I'll never be warm

And as my eyes close, that's when my heart shows
We were together, now only God knows
If I'll make it through the winter

Holding me close with hearts own delight
Keeping me warm in cold lonesome night

Go then on your way, I won't make you stay
Colour in your dreams, I'll sit here in grey

And as my eyes close, that's when my heart shows
We were together, now only God knows
If I'll make it through the winter
