Track Name: For Real (Intro)
You spoke to me like you knew me,
The very first time we met
You skipped around, told me to be louder, be prouder
Said I've got a lot to give, to give, to give

You believed in me, day after day
You believed in me, again and again
You believed in me, day after day
You believed in me

What were you smiling about?
I thought I saw you look at me
You seemed to identify with everything I said,
Everything, everything

You believed in me, day after day
You believed in me, again and again
You believed in me, day after day
You believed in me

Woah, would you cut me from you story so easily?
Is it so hard to say goodbye?
All this silence makes me wonder if it's fear you're feeling
Why is it so hard to say goodbye?

Whatever you choose to do next
I know that you will give you best, and better, and better
I know that you know we are all learning

You wanted to teach me how to participate,
Enter a circle of people
"Talk to the others, don't be alone for a long time"

Well I'm talking to you because I want to, I wanna know you (repeat)

Do you believe in me?
I wanna be real, I know I'm real
Do you believe in me?
I wanna be real, I know I'm real
Do you believe in me?
Track Name: Everyday, Everyday
Everyday, everyday
I hear people say that they know for sure
Everyday, everyday
I remind myself that there is always more

Everyday, looking for the more or less
Looking for the everyday
Looking for the something else
There is always more or less,
So much more...
Track Name: The Horizon Line
I didn't mean to hurt you
That's the truth I swear

The crime is mine
I take the blame
But everybody had a part to play
So everybody has a price to pay

Look out to the horizon line and say you gave it all away
Look out to the horizon line and say you gave it all away

Come back they call to me
Footprints fade away into the sea
Come back they call to me
Footprints fade away into the sea

For you my love is undercover
Surely you doubt and wonder

The crime is mine
I take the blame
But everybody had a part to play
So everybody has a price to pay

Look out to the horizon line and say you gave it all away
Look out to the horizon line and say you gave it all away

Come back they call to me
Footprints fade away into the sea
Come back they call to me
Footprints fade away into the sea
Track Name: Good At What I Know
I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know

All the rest I'll try my best
But lately I tire so easily
Lately I tire so easily

You're asking me to be a different species
But I was born this way, this way
I know we are all changing, like the river's rearranging
But some things stay the same, stay the same

I've done so many things that I never dreamed I could
Every time it's a surprise, I'm grateful I made it
And there are days I wish I could catch the same wave again
But I move again...
I always move again,
I always move again,
I always move again

(Saxophone solo)

I always move again,
I always move again,
I always move again,
I always move again,
I make a home again, I make it home again

I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know

All the rest I'll try my best
But lately I tire so easily
Lately I tire so easily

You're asking me to be a different species
But I was born this way, this way
I know we are all changing, like the river's rearranging
But some things stay the same, stay the same
(repeat)

I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know
I'm only good at what I know
Track Name: The Irony
I apologise, I apologise
I apologise, I'm sorry
Let the cold rain wash over me

Oh it's the irony,
I know to speak but words defeat me
Silence held me back and I'm alone
(repeat)

Let me hiss a whisper,
Listen close I won't resist
I never meant to let you go away
(repeat)

I apologise, I apologise
I apologise, I'm sorry
Let the cold rain wash over me

Oh it's the irony,
I know to speak but words defeat, deceive, defeat, deceive me
Ooooh oh it's the irony,
I know to speak but words defeat, deceive, defeat, deceive me
Ooooh oh it's the irony,
I know to speak but words defeat, deceive, defeat, deceive me

Silence held me back and I'm alone
Back and I'm a-
Silence held me back and I'm alone
Thrown back into the water
You've opened my eyes again
Thrown back into the water
You've opened my eyes again
Thrown back into the water
You've opened my eyes again
Oh you've opened my eyes again.

Thanks to you my friend
Thanks to you my friend
Thanks to you my friend, we can laugh we don't pretend
Thanks to you my friend, this is not the end

No this is not the end
You've opened my eyes,
You've opened my eyes
Hopefully I'll see you again
Track Name: Thunder and Lightning
When I pass you, I don't turn, no I don't turn
When I pass you, I don't turn
Or else I'll never learn
Gotta be stern and strong
Although I know my heart will keep burning on for you

Whenever I see you, I sit with a smile
Whenever I see you, I sit with a smile
And it will stay for a while
Cannot pretend to ignore the thunder and lightning that comes when I -

Ooooh....
Track Name: Elle Danse avec la Nuit
Elle danse avec la nuit toute seule
Y a ni lune ni étoile
Dans le ciel noir les nuages bougent
Grâce au vent qui chuchote une chanson,
Une histoire que personne ne connaît plus

Sauf les gens qui écoutent bien
Aux avis les tiens, les miens
Ainsi que la rivière qui pleure ses larmes sur la terre
Track Name: Slow It Down
They tell you no time for laughter
They tell you playtime is over
But I say stay alive and look at the stars
Reminder of who we were in the past
What on earth have we become?

They tell you not much use in dreaming
They tell you calm down, stop your screaming
But I say stay alive and look at the stars
Reminder of who we were in the past
What on earth have we become?

They tell you no time for laughter
They tell you playtime is over
But I say stay alive and look at the stars
Reminder of who we were in the past
What on earth have we become?

They tell you not much use in dreaming
They tell you calm down, stop your screaming
But I say slow it down and give it some love
Don't push, don't shove
Track Name: Caught On A Page
She was caught on a page,
No one knew her age
She walked in circles, had no hurdles
She had a sparkle in her eye
Telling of times gone by

She was lost in the waves
They told her to be brave
But in her solitude she let the blue ocean water hold her safe
This is her happy place

She let the sound escape her heart
Where years of shooting stars lay sleeping
She felt a change, there was no danger
All she saw was beauty
(repeat)

Heart sound, heart sound
Shooting stars lay sleeping
Oh heart sound, heart sound
Shooting stars lay sleeping
