Track Name: As I Look At You
As I look at You

Intro

Oh
In your eyes

Repeat

Verse 1

She sits and looks
At empty space
Saying “life has seemed to pass me by”
But she doesn’t know why
Then you hold her in your loving arms
And tell her all will turn out as you planned
In a twinkle of an eye

Chorus

Oh…..
She sees the love
That’s in your eyes
Repeat

Verse 2

He’s just lost his whole world
His steps have faltered, his life uncoiled
But he’s trying to work it out
But then you pick him up in your embrace
And show him what he can expect to taste
From the fruit of his toil

Chorus

Oh…..
He sees the love
That’s in your eyes
Repeat

Chorus

Oh…..
She sees the love
That’s in your eyes
Repeat

Chorus

Oh…..
They see the love
That’s in your eyes
Repeat
Track Name: Listen To Me
Listen To Me

Verse 1

I need to work through my tears
When I wake up
And see where life has brought me
You say that “weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning”
It’s morning now
And I still don’t feel it
So, where is my joy?
Where is my joy?
It’s morning now
And I still don’t feel it
Where is my joy?
Where is my joy?
It’s morning now
And I just don’t feel it

Chorus

Only you can teach us
To see what’s real
Only you can teach us
To feel what’s real

To see what’s inside us
To feel what’s inside us
To learn, learn, learn, learn
From our woes

Middle 8

Where is my joy?
Where is my joy?
I need to know
Oooooh

Verse 2

I’m still in tears
My life is still where you brought me
I’m still in pieces
My life has come to haunt me
And it’s morning now
And I still don’t feel it
And it’s morning now
And I just don’t feel it

Chorus

Only you can teach us
To see what’s real
Only you can teach us
To feel what’s real

To see what’s inside us
To feel what’s inside us
To learn, learn, learn
From our woes

Repeat
Track Name: Who Knows?
Who knows?

Verse 1

Nobody knows
Where I have been
Nobody knows
What I have seen
But they want to judge me
Judge me!
For who I am
But not for what I do
Oh no no

Verse 2

They judge me
But they do not know
What they see
In my head
But I know what’s inside me
In my head
And also what's inside my heart
No....

Reprise

Nobody knows
Where I have been
And nobody knows
What I have seen
But they want to judge me
Judge me!
For who I am
But not for what I do
Oh no no

Ahhhhhh

They judge me
But they don not know what they see
But only I know
What's inside my heart
They only judge from what they see
Track Name: You Never Call Me
You Never call

Verse 1

You’re full of empty promises
Because you said you wouldn’t go down that road again
But it doesn’t seem
That you care enough to keep your precious word
With those angelic eyes
You forced me to believe in your flood of tears
Behind your eyes
There is a world of lies

Chorus

Why d’you never love me
Why d’you never want me
Why d’you never call me
Unless you want someone

Repeat

Verse 2

So, here we are again
Sitting at the very same cross road
But this time it has changed
Because I have to carry my own load
I have no time to waste
I have to leave you well alone
So without me you can see
All the things you can do on your own

Chorus

Why d’you never love me
Why d’you never want me
Why d’you never call me
Unless you want someone
Instrumental

Behind those eyes
There is a world of lies
Ooooh
Behind those eyes
There is a world of lies


Chorus

Why d’you never love me
- you're never gonna want me
Why d’you never want me
Why d’you never call me
Unless you want someone

Repeat

Repeat
Track Name: My Walk
My Walk

When I used to do some things I used to do
Those things I wanted to do
When times were really hard
I had no where to go
No where to run
You turned my life right round
And put me in the know
You gave me life
You put me in the light
At a time when I did not
At a time when I did not want to know

Chorus

You gave your life for me
So that I could give my life to you
I really love you
I really want to know you

When people first saw you
They could not understand your view
They should’ve known
But they did not love you
No

Repeat

Middle 8

My walk with you
Gives me peace and joy of mind
I really know that it must be
One of a kind
I wanna shout
I want to share this with you
So that everything’s in view

Everything’s in view

Chorus

You gave your life for me
So that I could give my life to you
I really love you
I really want to know you

When people first saw you
They could not understand your view
They should’ve known
But they did not love you

Repeat (bridge)

When I used to do some things I used to do
Those things I wanted to do
When times were really hard
I had no where to go
No where to run
You turned my life right round
And put me right in the know

Chorus

You gave your life for me
So that I could give my life to you
I really love you
I really want to know you

When people first saw you
They could not understand your view
They should’ve known
But they did not love you

Track Name: Smart Cafe
My Smart Café

Verse 1
As I sit alone
In a smart café
Just thinking how unsmart I am
As everything seems to wanna pass me by

Why do people go
Down their separate ways?
They only walk with you part way
As they go down their chosen paths
To stay away


Bridge

Why do people say
That they’re gonna stay?
When they have to go
Have to go have to go
Please tell me why
Why do people say that they’re
Gonna stay?
Why do people say
That they’re gonna stay
When they have to go
Have to go
Have to go
Please tell me why
Why people say that they have to lie?


Verse 2

Sitting all alone
In my smart café
Still thinking how unsmart I am
How can I get off this train that I’m sitting on?
Why do people go
Down their separate ways?
They only walk with you part way
As they go down their chosen paths
To run away

Middle 8

I know it will pass
And it will not be the last time
I feel this way
No no no
Sitting and watching the world go by
As I sit in my smart café

Repeat

Outro

As I sit alone
In a smart café
Just thinking how unsmart I am
As everything seems to wanna pass me by

Why do people go
Down their separate ways?
They only walk with you part way
As they go down their chosen paths
To run away

As I sit alone
In a smart café
Just thinking how unsmart I am
As everything seems to wanna pass me by
Track Name: I'm So Sorry
I’m So Sorry

Verse 1

I’m so sorry
I wasn’t there
When you decided to go away
I wanted to tell you
How much I loved you so
I really needed to tell you

Chorus

Now you’ve gone
You’ve left me behind
To pick up the pieces
Of my shattered mind

I need you
To help me
But you’re not here
To help me
With my mind
I need you to help me
With my mind
I need you to help me

Verse 2

I did the best
I could for you
Maybe I thought I did
But perhaps it was quite untrue

I needed some warning
When you had to go
Where have you gone?
I still don’t know

Chorus

Now you’ve gone
You’ve left me behind
To pick up the pieces
Of my shattered mind

I need you
To help me
But you’re not here
To help me
With my mind
I need you to help me
With my mind
I need you to help me

Outro

Please help me
With my mind
'Cos I need your help
With my mind
Please help me
With my mind

I got a big bright sun called sunny
It’s gonna shine
Make people happy
Creeping through clouds
That lookin’ kinda funny

Feeling fine
When sunny shines
Down on them
All of the time
All want sunny but sunny is mine

Make people happy
Creeping through clouds

Melt away
That’s why we wish
My sunny could stay
All want sunny
But sunny is mine
My, my sunny shines like honey

When nightfall comes down on my sunny
I’m no longer with my honey
Your warmth
Your glare
Your blinding gaze
Makes me wish for never ending days

Repeat
Track Name: Media Style Of ADD
Media Style Of ADD

Verse 1

It’s hard to be objective
When your mouth gets in the way
It’s hard to be objective
When you’ve nothing good to say
You talk about what matters to you
But when d’at matter to me?
What you said happened yesterday
I’m living for today

Oh, you, you you
Not me, me, me
I don’t feel love
No! In this company

Instrumental

Oh yeah
Break it down
Break it down
Break it down

Verse 2

It takes some time
To let the head relax
To free some passion
To get down off the max
So start talking sensibly
So start talking straight
I’m not the kind of guy
Who acts like a reprobate

Chorus

Who, who, who
Am I, I, I
To get to know you better
To ask the question why

Verse 3

It tires me listening to you
Shouting when you’re talking
It tires me listening to you
Shut up! Or I start walking
You’re not my friend not anybody’s friend in any way
Your media style of ADD
Ain’t living for today

Chorus

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Go get some attention
From the vision and sound invention

Repeat

If I had a little more time
With you
I would say
If I had a little more time
With you
I would say

Repeat

Verse 1

Listen to my prayer
And don’t ignore my plea
But hear and answer me
As my thoughts
Make me so fraught

Hearing voices against me
They leave me with
Nothing but grief
And disbelief
With anguish in my heart

Chorus

If I had a little more time
With you
I would say
If I had a little more time
With you
I would say

Repeat


Verse 2

You are my keeper
And I have everything I need
You take me to a quiet place
Where I can get some peace
Even though I walk through the shadows
I have no fear
Cos I know you are near
You comfort me
As it really should be

Middle 8

I feel I wanna die
But why oh why
Must I tremble
As I fly to the sky

If I’d flown away
To keep my fears at bay
Because of you
I fixed the hole
In all of my heart

Outro

If I had a little more time
With you
I would say
If I had a little more time
With you
I would say

Repeat

Who can save me
