Track Name: time is not my friend
oh the road ahead is long and twisted
there was a turn-off somewhere near but i think i missed it
the mist is closing in and i'm moving slower
the long dark nights take their toll my head is hanging lower
i look for someone to take my pain away
i look for shelter while the sky turns grey
seems like i'm destined to always walk this road
and time is not my friend as i get old
appearing in the black of night
there's a girl who shines a kindly light
she eases my fear of what may come tomorrow
she holds my hand and i don't feel so hollow
Track Name: starlight
under a clear dark sky I gaze till long after midnight
i see a billion stars where there's no neon lights
down here we stumble and fall, always keen to fight
but there's beauty within, we all come from starlight
we hurl through time and space on our way to nowhere
we yearn for sense of place but our journey lies out there
down here we stumble and fall, always keen to fight
but there's beauty within, we all come from starlight
under a clear dark sky i stand and think about death
where have our loved ones gone and where are we who are left
one day there'll be nothing at all just endless night
but there's beauty within, we all come from starlight
Track Name: long time gone
like a wide-eyed frightened child I lie awake and dread the night
my scattered thoughts are running wild my heart and soul are screwed up tight
i wonder what the hell to do but perhaps there’s nothing to be done
if I lie still, not even move will I eventually be overrun?
we’re a long time gone, we’re all a long time gone
i sit all day and stare at the world outside
green and blue and beautiful, vibrant, full of life
there’s nothing anyone can do, but take comfort in each day
all I see around me will one day pass away
Track Name: never gonna be the same
i'm hard, harder than i look
i'm strong, stronger than i've ever been
i lived, i lived through the fire
i flew, and one day i'll fly higher
and everything we go through makes us who we are
i'm never gonna be the same, never gonna be the same
i'm alive, alive while i live
i love, love is all i have to give
and everything we go through makes us who we are
i'm never gonna be the same, never gonna be the same
i know that you can't waste a day
there are four things in life, love, art, work and play
and everything we go through makes us who we are
i'm never gonna be the same, never gonna be the same
Track Name: everything new
taking a walk through the old streets, thinking about some old friends
all the ones who slipped away, still smiling till the end
and everything new will be old again my friend
sitting alone in this empty bar, where we used to play all night
now i wonder where we are, is it time to fade from sight?
and everything new will be old again tonight
those days have gone, we sang our song, it's time to walk away
but in the final shout one truth stands out, everything new will be old again one day
way back in time we mattered, we were the best in town
now those idol (idyll/idle) dreams are shattered and yet we're still around
and everything new will be old again my friend
those days have gone, we sang our song, it's time to walk away
but in the final shout one truth stands out, everything new will be old again one day
Track Name: where i went wrong
i had the best intentions, my love was young and strong
and we dreamed a perfect future, and we sang an endless song
and now i'd love to know where we went wrong
she stole my heart away, i left my home where i belonged
and it felt so good, and all the time it felt so wrong
and now i'd love to know where i went wrong
never hurt your loved ones, it should be set in stone
so many have cried at my expense, i deserve to be alone
i try to walk more peaceful now, i regret the things i've done
i love someone who trusts in me, and if desire calls, i'm not at home
and i think that i begin to learn where i went wrong
