Bird on my shoulder It’s running through like a bad disease Through my head down to my feet My mind is sore and my body it aches Trying to find the time to just relax I miss my home I miss my family I miss the love that they give to me When I fall into a deep dark hole They’re the ones who have the rope When I thought I’d hit the ground Something turned me upside down Just when I thought things were gonna get worse Then along came a little bird There’s a bird on my shoulder and he’s singing softly to me Telling me that all these things are not as big as they seem And to greet each day with love when you wake My pockets empty, no loose change That’s nothing new but it’s bugging me today I wish I could fly like a bird in the wind I wish I could forget all these things When I thought I’d hit the ground Something turned me upside down Just when I thought things were gonna get worse Then along came a little bird There’s a bird on my shoulder and he’s singing softly to me Telling me that all these things are not as big as they seem And to greet each day with love when you wake

Sway 03:21
Sway Baby girl, please don’t be scared tonight I will send all of my love back to you Don’t be afraid to follow what your heart believes is true I believe in you Don’t let anyone sway you And I promise I won’t take you away Don’t let anyone sway you And I promise I won’t take you away Believe what I say You dance so gracefully across the room And I stare, I stare at the wonder of you You’re too young to hold the weight of someone else You’re so brave and you do it so well Don’t let anyone sway you And I promise I wont take you away Don’t let anyone sway you And I promise I wont take you away Believe what I say You’re always in my dreams This feeling runs deep You’re always on my mind I pray for you each day The kindest heart I’ve seen I hate to see it hurt I give you all I have, all that you need All that you need Don’t let anyone sway you And I promise I won’t take you away Don’t let anyone sway you

Brand New Shoes Lying in the sun thinking back to this morning You lay next to me do do do do do do do I got my brand new shoes on I got my brand new shoes on Do do do do do Walking down the street, smiling faces everyone I meet Mind drifts to thoughts, thoughts of you and do do do do I got my brand new shoes on I got my brand new shoes on Do do do do do Riding on my bike through the trees falling leaves I’ve got no where to be, no one to see, so I’ll just dream I got my brand new shoes on I got my brand new shoes on Do do do do do

Ode to John 05:32
Ode to John All these choices were leading up to this, were leading up to this And all these tears were leading up to this, were leading up to this I hear your voice soft and sweetly, soft and sweetly it calms me down Won’t you jump inside of me and I’ll play your favourite song Ooh I missed the point I missed the point Ooh I missed the point I missed the point And now I’m paying Everything that I thought I knew, that I thought I knew Don’t mean a thing now, now I’ve gone this low there’s nothing strong enough to hold I hear your voice soft and sweetly soft and sweetly it calms me down Won’t you jump inside of me and I’ll play your favourite song Ooh I missed the point I missed the point Ooh I missed the point I missed the point And now I’m paying Its goodbye I guess I’ll see you when I close my eyes Its goodbye I guess I’ll see you when I close my eyes I say goodbye It’s goodbye I guess I’ll see you I hear your voice soft and sweetly soft and sweetly it calms me down Won’t you jump inside of me and I’ll play your favourite song I hear your voice soft and sweetly soft and sweetly it calms me down

Turn out the lights Blow out the candles, there’s no room for light in here My eyes are bleeding, blinded by the sight of you swollen tears Are falling, to the ground and drifting away And I can’t stay So turn out the lights, turn out the lights Turn out the lights and this feeling inside Turn out the lights, turn out the lights Turn out the lights and this feeling inside

Drivel on a page So I held my breathe, I let you walk away With no sign that I wanted you to stay Then I missed you, I missed you in the night And then I missed you So where do I go now Now that I still want you around And all these words that I have left to say They’ll just turn into drivel on a page Drivel on a page It’s strange that one moment in time can make you crazy Make you loose your mind And all these walls that you build around your heart They all come tumbling down with the strength of love So where do I go now Now that I still want you around And all these words that I have left to say They’ll just turn into drivel on a page Drivel on a page Shadows grow and memories they fade The weeds get so thick the flowers dissipate And it was nothing in anything you said Its just the love that you gave is what I can’t forget And all the walls we build, all the rules we break All the hate we give and all the love we take And all these words that I have left to say They just turned into Drivel on a page

Only he 03:12
Only He You came back, you came back when I was gone And some other savior, someone else stole my soul I closed the back door I slammed it shut Now only he can have this love Only you Your eyes were gentle but there was a fire burning within And I had to leave, I had to leave before it burned my skin I closed the back door I slammed it shut Now only he can have this love Only you I thought I had it all, and together we would grow old But in the back of my mind I had doubt stronger than I could fight I closed the back door I slammed it shut Now no one else can have this love Only you

Sticks and Stones You know the love that I have for you It can’t be sold, sold or stolen It’s like a thought that never leaves my mind It’s beautiful You have a face that tells stories of a troubled place A black hole, a lost soul A dream that was woken up You’re my brother, you’re my love, you’re my sweetheart my blood But each time that you bleed my feet get icy cold Even though it’s going to hurt you Even though it’s bound to kill you You stick it in and you feed its hunger Hunger for your blood Sticks and stones will break your bones But it’s the words that hurt the most So I won’t fight you and I won’t beg Just as long as I know, you know, I’m here You’re my brother, you’re my love, you’re my sweetheart my blood But each time that you bleed my feet get icy cold Even though it’s going to hurt you Even though it’s bound to kill you You stick it in and you feed its hunger Hunger for your blood

The Whale song The whales are heading north, and I’m moving too I’m standing against the wind, I’m trying to break through I’m on the roof top I’m kicking down stones For each one that tried to hit this soul I’m on the outside I am looking in Ooh I’m getting deeper I feel it in the rain, it’s coming down hard Washing this shit away, a brand new start I’m on the roof top I’m kicking down stones For each one that tried to hit this soul I’m on the outside I am looking in Ooh I’m getting deeper The whales are heading north, and I’m moving too I’m standing against the wind, I’m trying to break through I’m on the roof top I’m kicking down stones For each one that tried to hit this soul I’m on the outside I am looking in Ooh I’m getting deeper

On the road 04:21
On the road I went out on the road Trying to find my feet Searching for piece of mind I found it was with me all the time Winter, come, gone Striped me of all I’d known Of love of life of truth of lies Funny how you change sometimes I want to taste it Life, I want to feel it under my veins Miles and miles of dusty road I listen hard to the stories I am told Of land, of sea, of earth and sky Ears open, my heart is on fire I want to taste it Life, I want to feel it under my veins I went out on the road Trying to find my feet Searching for piece of mind I found it was with me all the time

August Rain 05:05
August rain I watched you breathe, silently, slowly You said hello, once today, there’s so much more that I want to say The August rain, is pouring down, outside this window all the lights are out Each moment I pray while you’re lying still but no one ever answers and no one ever will Who decides when we go, who turns out the lights no body knows Does god exist and if he does then why is he taking you from me You are my wife, you are my lover, you are a mother and you are my friend And close to my heart, I‘ll keep you there oh I’m scared to fall apart You’ve earned your wings, you’ll float away, I can’t hide this hurt and I can’t hide this pain Bring me the sun, bring me day when everything’s right back in its place With you close to me, with you by my side Who decides when we go who turns out the lights no body knows Does god exist and if he does then why is he taking you from me You are my wife, you are my lover, you are a mother and you are my friend And close to my heart, I’ll keep you there Oh I’m scared to fall apart The August rain, is pouring down, outside this window all the lights are out Each moment I pray while you’re lying still but no one ever answers and no one ever will

Sing 04:01
Sing Wake in the morning, have a cup of tea My eyes are playing tricks on me I put on my favourite Dylan tune And I sing I don’t shower much, it’s a waste of water I brush my teeth, it helps me to feel clean I put on my favourite Janis tune And I sing And I sing, sing, sing Step outside, the sun on my back I thank the earth for this life I have I put on my favourite Neil Young tune And I sing And I sing, sing, sing I go driving long long long roads No one to talk to, no one to hold I put on my favourite Lennon tune And I sing And I sing, sing, sing
