    • Always There

      Verse 1
      All throughout your life, you left footprints in the sand
      Only two, but he was there, he carried you
      As the tide rolls in, and your mark is washed away
      Don’t forget that all you’ve done with love, will stay

      Verse 2
      Walk with me he said, I will hold you in my hand
      Don’t you cry, for he was there, he carried you
      When the storm cloud breaks, children’s prayer says not to fear
      Morning star will guide you home, the shore is near

      Chorus
      Always there – he carried you
      Always there – but only two

      We’re off to work now, another day
      To make some money, and pay our way

      Verse 1
      She sailed, the seas, raiding each coast with ease
      The search, for spice, each time she threw the dice
      Waiting for her to return, knowing she must leave
      Tasting her love for a while, then she is gone with the breeze

      Verse 2
      She rode, the waves, harbours would sing her praise
      The hunt, for jade, cruising each port for trade
      Menfolk would carry a light, guiding her to shore
      Bringing her gift from the night, then she is gone in the dawn

      Some yards will catch a falling child

      Verse 3
      Some yards are made for love and glory
      Some yards are made for playing ball
      Some yards begin a new life story
      Some yards are made for growing tall

      Chorus
      Those were the days and we stood holding hands
      I was your lady – you were – my man

    • Something To Tell

      Verse 1
      It’s a secret, for a while
      Can you see me, hiding a smile
      When you touch me, don’t you know
      When you love me, doesn’t it show

      Verse 2
      It’s a secret, for a while
      In the night-time, hiding a smile
      If I tell you, will you cry
      In the morning, saying goodbye

      Chorus
      You know it’s time, and all is well
      This is the time, I have something to tell
      You know it’s time, ring out the bell
      This is the time, I have something to tell

      Bridge
      All the little children, sleeping in their beds
      Four and twenty bluebirds, singing round their heads
      All the little children … smile!

      Coda
      I have something to tell

    • Take Me Home

      Verse 1
      So, the girl upstairs, does she know
      The boy downstairs, far below, on his own
      He’s the one she’s looking for, a crown behind the door
      And blood upon the floor

      Verse 2
      Now, she understands, what it means
      The boy downstairs, can be seen, in a dream
      He is lying on a bed, and blood around his head
      The king is left for dead

      Chorus
      Take me home again, cross the lake, to my land
      Lead me back to you, the Isle of Avalon
      Now the battle is fought and won, but the pain has come
      Morgaine, take me home

      Bridge
      Sleeping … Dreaming … Sailing … Back … Home

      Coda
      Take me home again, cross the lake to my land
      Lead me back to you, the Isle of Avalon
      Now the battle is fought and won, but the pain has come
      Morgaine, take me home and my lady will light the way, she is Morgan Fay
      Take me, home to Avalon

    • Talking Song

      Verse 1
      If I keep talking to you while you’re ‘phoning
      Maybe the taxi-man won’t hear your call
      It’s so dark, and it’s raining
      If I keep talking to you while you’re waiting
      Maybe you’ll change your mind and stay the night
      It’s so late, and it’s freezing

      Verse 2
      If I keep talking to you while you’re leaving
      Maybe you’ll think of me when you get home
      And you’ll call, in the morning

      Chorus
      Just put your arms around him, or hold him by the hand
      And when you see him smiling, sing a talking song
      Just spin your words around him, a web of magic love
      So when he turns to you just sing a talking song

      Bridge
      I still remember long ago, that cold and rainy winter’s night
      How wonderful to be with you, you phoned and made it right!

    • Taste Of Wine

      Verse 1
      I believe in magic, and the fire above
      In the silver water – love …
      I believe in angels, in the air above
      On the earth around us – love …

      Verse 2
      I believe in magic, and the holy night
      And the star above you – light …
      I believe in angels, never out of sight
      In the sky around you – light …

      Chorus
      Can you hear, I’m calling – are you there, or just
      A waste of time, a taste of wine, that’s fading
      Can you see, I’m falling – are you there, or just
      A waste of time, a taste of wine

      Bridge
      And when the day is done, and when the game is won
      I’ll leave my taste of wine on you …
      And when the race is run, and when the time has come
      I’ll leave my taste of wine on you …

    • Tears In Rain

      Verse 1
      Watching, hoping, waiting
      I’m over here, turn around, I appear
      Smiling, waving, calling
      Just as you go, turn around, and you’ll know

      Verse 2
      Watching, hoping, waiting
      I’m over here, turn around, I appear

      Chorus
      Does he know my name?
      Can he feel my pain?
      Cry your tears in vain
      Again
      What is there to gain?
      Love is all the same
      Dry your tears in rain
      Again (my friend)

      Bridge
      I’m too young, you’re too old
      I’m on fire, you’re still cold
