    • Blue Light Blue

      Verse 1
      I’m dreaming of you, and where you lead, I’ll follow too
      Up to the stars, maybe on Mars, where you will go, I’ll follow you
      I’m waiting, now, that you’re in my head, on my wall, on my bed
      Now, that you’re everywhere, come to me, my space man

      Verse 2
      I’m dreaming of you, and where you lead, I’ll follow too

    • Waco Dreaming

      Verse 1
      Run for your life, long-coated men are after you
      You Barrow boy, and Bonnie came she brought a gun
      To your cell, then you were free, and you’re gone

      Verse 2
      We met by chance, was at a friend’s house just a glance
      Was all it took, to seal our fate and start a life
      On the road, just for a while, now we’re gone

      Chorus
      I’m Waco dreaming
      Still, ghost trains are passing by
      And the stars, ride high
      Across, the wide, Texas sky

      Bridge
      Long-coated men, took their revenge, by the roadside
      Now we are free, remember me, I’m your first love – and your last

    • Waiting For You

      Verse 1
      Car’s in the drive, steps to the door
      Keys on the chair, shoes on the floor
      So very tired, coffee for two
      Missed you today, what did you do?
      Lost – in a dream – fading, away, away

      Verse 2
      Let’s go to bed, old sleepy head
      I’ll dream of you, if you’ll dream too
      Caught in the rain, couldn’t be seen
      Waiting for you, lost in a dream
      Lost – in a dream – fading, away, away

      Chorus
      Waiting for you – waiting for you
      Winter’s coming, leaves are falling
      Waiting for you

      Bridge
      Siren, the light blue siren, flashes to say
      Rain on, that devil night road, took you away

      Waiting For You Listen
    • You’re My Star

      Verse 1
      Early in the morning, I’m still dreaming
      Could it be a better day?
      Open up the window, birds are singing
      Knowing you’re not far way
      Day time story, keep it all together
      Even when they let you down
      Day time story, tales of love and glory
      Lift yourself right off the ground

      Verse 2
      Later in the evening, I’m still dreaming
      Memories are made for two
      Sitting by the fire side, with a picture
      Black and white of me and you
      Bed time story, shoo the scary monster
      There’s no need for me to hide
      Bed time story, tales of love and glory
      Knowing that you’re by my side

      Verse 3
      Take away the day now, it will come back
      I will see your light again
      Sleep until the morning, on the right track
      Hear you calling in the wind
      Bed time story, shoo the scary monster
      There’s no need for me to hide
      Bed time story, tales of love and glory
      Knowing that you’re by my side

      Pre-chorus
      In a dream – I’ll find you – in a dream
      In a dream – I’ll find you – in my dream

      Chorus
      Burma Star on Harrow Hill
      Just a soldier in the sky
      Cold as night but you’re still shining
      And I will remember why – you’re my – star!

      You’re My Star Listen
    • You’ve Got Ghosts

      Verse 1
      When I met you last night, there was love, on-your-mind
      Your breath, close-to-mine, was warm and sweet, and your pulse would beat, in time
      Now the day, has washed it away, your look, has shown another sign

      Verse 2
      Will you see me again, if I talk, like-a-friend
      Bad love, knows it can’t, release its grip, ’till the memories unwind
      Take a chance, you know it’s a dance, good love may take your hand next time

      Chorus
      You’ve got ghosts in your eyes, and they hide there, for a while
      Are they waiting, calling, do they dance behind your smile?
      You’ve got ghosts in your eyes, I can see them, in disguise
      Are they watching, calling, do they haunt you with their lies?

      Bridge
      If you thought it would pass, these things, take their time
      The play, must go on, with a better lead, reading different lines, like mine
      Can’t you see, it’s time you were free, new love, must leave the old behind

      Coda
      You’ve got ghosts

      You’ve Got Ghosts Listen
    • Your Star – What Name?

      Verse 1
      You may wake, before a sunbeam, takes the moon away
      Wipe your eyes go to the window, stars above, are looking out for
      You and me and all the people, Jupiter and Mars
      Planetary generation, wish upon, a galaxy of stars

      Verse 2
      Late at night, go to your window, look into the sky
      You may see a star that knows you, burning blue, and watching over
      You and me and all the people, born among the stars
      Will return to shine forever, high above, but really not too far

      Pre-chorus
      There is a star name, just for you
      It can be found in your heart, burning blue

      Chorus
      No star no name, inside Andromeda
      No star the same, your star – what name?

      Coda
      No star no name, inside Andromeda
      No star the same, your star
      No star no name, inside Andromeda
      No star the same, your star – what name?
