Track Name: Storm Blues
Storm rollin' In,
Storm rollin' out,
Dunno where I'm going,
What it's all about,
Weather's like my mood,
changing all the time,
some times I'm so stormy,
next minute I am fine,

Heading to the beach,
packing up the car,
Sun it is shining,
wait no it's gone dark,

Wake up in the morning,
music on my mind,
sit down to write a song,
can't write a single line.

Storm rollin' In,
Storm rollin' out,
Dunno where I'm going,
What it's all about,
Weather's like my mood,
changing all the time,
some times I'm so stormy,
next minute I am fine.

Going for a jog,
sun shining on the hills,
next minute it's pouring,
feels like I'm swimming in a pool,

Some days I can't face it,
black clouds hanging down,
next day I feel ok,
back on solid ground,

Storm rollin' In,
Storm rollin' out,
Dunno where I'm going,
What it's all about,
Weather's like my mood,
changing all the time,
some times I'm so stormy,
next minute I am fine.
Track Name: Across the Water
Dear Friend, I know we've grown much older,
Oh and I hope you're doing well,
It's been an age since I saw you,
It's been too long to tell,

Still I wait for you,
I wait across the water,
Still I wait for you,
For you to come sailing home,
And on that day,
I won't need this photograph anymore,
We'll be hanging out,
Like old times with endless laughs,

Dear Friend, there really is no hurry,
Still I wonder what's taking you so long,
It's been twenty six years today since I saw ya,
In this photograph you still look so young,

Still I wait for you,
I wait across the water,
Still I wait for you,
For you to come sailing home,
And on that day,
I won't need this photograph anymore,
We'll be hanging out,
Like old times with endless laughs,

Dear friend, this place is so much better,
Than that broken town we used to live in,
I hope that you will arrive soon,
so you can see what I mean,

And I know it seems,
As if i left across the water,
but trust me friend,
I was just heading home,
and I hope one day,
I will see your smiling face,
as you walk on through,
these magnificent gates,

and I hope one day,
I will see your smiling face,
as you walk on through,
these big old pearly gates.
Track Name: Lifeboat
I know I can't stop your tears,
Like a fool I sit here as they flow,
The only words in this hopeless mind,
is when the lifeboat comes it'l be alright,
When the lifeboat comes,
It'l be just fine.

Nothing I can give you will satisfy,
The growing list of your desires,
The ocean feels way to big this time,
but when the lifeboat comes It'l be alright,
when the lifeboat comes It'l be just fine.

Well I dunno if happiness is real,
but it sure seems to be sometimes,
Or is that just our distracting lives,
that keeps our heads above the water line,
that keeps our heads above the water line,
when the lifeboat comes it'l be alright,
when the lifeboat comes it'l be just fine.
Track Name: Refugee
The rumours of terror have now arrived,
they've come to our front door.
What we were warned of has come to pass,
We cannot hide no more.

We must flee to other lands,
take our chances on the sea.
I hope those people realise,
It was not our choice to flee.

When darkness falls we're leaving,
hold my hand so tight,
I hope that where we're heading,
they will treat us right.

Young child you must know it wasn't always like this.
Our town it was vibrant and peaceful.
Young child you must know we tried to resist,
these great forces of evil.

Now as we run from this war-torn land,
trusting others for our survival.
I hope they take us in their arms,
I pray our lives will be valued.

When darkness falls we're leaving,
hold my hand so tight,
I hope that where we're heading,
they will treat us right.

Leaders please don't pass the blame,
and say we're not responsible.
Please don't turn your head away,
please do all that is possible.

Cos if we were born in peaceful lands,
it's no doing of our own,
we must help those in need,
give shelter from the storm.

When darkness falls somewhere on earth,
let's hold out our hands,
shelter those who need it,
love our fellow man,
love our fellow man,
Track Name: No One's Here/Cares
Well we were walking on down the road in a big ol' country town,
Looking for some vibing place but the shops had all closed down.
So we walked on a couple of blocks until we found a pub,
we could hear some conversation but when we entered it all stopped.
Gruff old men that sat around at our faces they did stare,
the barman he just looked at us and said 'What you doin' there?'

No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,

So later on in that lonesome town we were setting up for the show,
Did a bunch of promo, played all over radio,
They said they all did dig us, they said they'd all come down,
but when we got up to the gig ain't nobody around,

Cos No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,

So halfway through the second set the owner shut us down,
"Sorry boys there's just not point" he told us with a frown,
"I thought this was the capital" said Sam's sarcastic grin,
"No they only come and see you here if you play on television".
So we packed up the gear we had in that hot summer air,
and headed off to the light house town to see if someone would listen there.

Cos No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,
No one's here and no one cares,
Track Name: Floating
Sometimes I feel like I'm fading away,
living like a ghost.
Wandering around this empty town,
forgetting all that matters most.

Still I know You are real,
Yeah I know You are there,

Sometimes it's the smallest thing,
that sends a heart into lockdown.
Wondering how all these people cope,
When it all comes crashing down around them

Still I know You are real,
Yeah I know You are there,

When it all erodes away,
there's a rock that lies beneath the clay.
When the rivers rise and pull so strong,
to that rock I'll cling on.

Lately I feel like I'm more aware,
of the broken world around me.
Knowing that most people I meet,
have a heavy burden to bare.

Still I know You are real,
Yeah I know You are there,

When it all erodes away,
there's a rock that lies beneath the clay.
When the waves crash in and pull so strong,
to that rock I'll cling on.
Track Name: Wisest Man
Once lived the wisest man,
but he had a quiet voice,
So no one ever heard him,
cos the world's to full of noise.

He travelled to the city,
to share all that he knows,
But nobody saw him,
they were staring at their phones.

He decided to write,
his message in a song.
He got up to perform it,
but no one came along

And he said "Why won't you listen to the words I say?
Why won't you listen, before it is to late.

He went down to the station,
to see if he could get on T.V.
but he wasn't good looking,
walked out in misery.

He went to the politician said
"Can I have a talk with you?"
"I don't have time" he replied.
"Don't you see all the good works that I do".

He got just so frustrated,
he went to the city square,
and shouted out the words but they thought he was crazy,
and nobody cared.

And he said "Why won't you listen to the words I say?
Why won't you listen, before it is to late.

One day he just gave up,
Decided he would leave.
Brushed the dust from his clothes,
and walked off down the street.
Track Name: Shelter
He was too young for tragedy, did he realise?
He was so near when it happened, did he see it with his eyes?
He just wrote his feelings in a song and sung to pass the time.
And I hope he will find,
The strongest shelter,
The strongest shelter,

How does a young boy realise, someone he loves is gone?
This young kid he just sat and wrote, they live on in his song.
And I, I couldn't help but cry when he showed his song to me,
And I hope he will find,
The strongest shelter,
The strongest shelter.

It's hard to know the pain he feels behind determined eyes,
He'll just keep charging on will people realise?
He's dealing with it the only way he knows, in his songs he finds peace.
And I hope he will find,
The strongest shelter,
The strongest shelter.
Track Name: If She's Not There
She's the one that lights up your face,
with songs of joy, you laugh all day.
But if one day she's not there to lead you in song,
Don't you worry she won't be long.
Can't keep her down her hearts to strong.

When you hear her coming you run to the gate,
and call out to her you just can't wait.
but if it's not her coming down the path,
don't you worry she won't be far.
Can't stop the love that's in her heart.

Young child you won't know what she's going through,
that her voice won't work, that her body won't move.
You won't know that it hurts her not to be there with you.
But hang on tight she'll be back soon,
Yeah hang on tight she'll be back soon.

Singing shouldn't be hard, shouldn't be hard, for anyone.
Singing shouldn't be hard, shouldn't be hard.
Track Name: Don't Go Drifting
Don't go drifting,
don't lose sight of home.
Don't go drifting,
you will be all alone.

Don't go drifting,
don't lose sight of home.
Don't go drifting,
you will be all alone.

Cos we're waiting back here for you girl,
waiting for you to come home.
Won't you come back here where no one is alone.

Once I drifted,
wind blew me here and there,
One I drifted,
I could end up anywhere

Once I drifted,
wind blew me here and there,
One I drifted,
I could end up anywhere

Cos we're waiting back here for you girl,
waiting for you to come home.
Won't you come back here where no one is alone.
