Track Name: Destiny is Calling
Destiny is calling

Verse 1

Dare to true
Dare to be you
you are what you are
so live like a star
We make the rules
rules can be broken
be who you want to
live how you want to
Don’t ever think
it cannot be done
don’t let the barstards
think that they’ve won
Pick yourself up
Dust yourself down
You know who you are
so go give ‘em hell

Chorus

Can’t change what been done
what’s been said or what’s happened
right here
right now
make a difference
make a vow
A spark in the dark
Fire in your heart
Destiny, is calling
Destiny, is calling
Its calling you

Verse 2

Don’t try and change
be someone your not
Don’t follow your head
follow your heart
This is the future
the present and past
live for today
as if it’s your last
Don’t ever think
you cannot achieve
were others have failed
you just need to believe
We make our own luck
We make our own way
we know who we are
So lets give ‘em hell

=>Chorus

We achieve
what we believe
We achieve
what we believe
We achieve
what we believe
Destiny is calling
Destiny, is calling
Its calling you
Track Name: The Way it Goes
The Way It Goes

Verse 1

What the hell is wrong with me
the world it turns but I can’t see
I’m losing my mind slowly
going round the bend finally
Why can I not get it together
the wrong places
the wrong feather
I find myself on my own
turning circles all alone
Where is at? Where are you?
this meal I cannot chew
what else can I do
except find something new

Chorus

Oh! That’s the way it goes
nobody knows
the way it goes
Oh! So unpredictable
It’s something you can’t school
that’s the way it goes

Verse 2

What the hell is wrong with me
my spinning mind won’t let me be
I’m losing my sleep rapidly
fishing for answers in the sea
Going crazy in my own hell
burning up where I fell
fantasy is where I dwell
can’t you see that I am just a shell
You gotta grab what you can
there is no fall back plan
I am what I am
life’s too short to give a damn

=> Chorus

Verse 3

What the hell is wrong with them
Why can’t they see the problem
I’m eating myself from inside
I’m a boat and you’re the tide
Why can I not get a grip
letting my ambition slip
I can’t let myself quit
gotta make everything fit
Fire fighting all the time
need to adapt to shine
can we control destiny?
or what will be will be?

=> Chorus
Track Name: Follow Your Heart
Follow Your Heart

Verse 1

Sometimes
We don’t know where we are
Just daydreams
that take us away so far
Well I’m going going going gone
away with my dreams
‘cause that’s the one place I want to be

Chorus

Follow your heart, they say

Verse 2

Sometimes
We don’t know how lucky we are
Just simple things
that make us who we are
Well I’m counting counting counting
all of my blessings
‘cause I realise how lucky I am

=>Chorus

Outro
Follow your heart, they say (x3)
Track Name: She Said
She Said

Verse 1

I just woke up the other day
Realised what I wanted to say
I’ve come alive
I will survive
Coz everything’s gonna be ok
I didn’t know what I wanted till now
I was confused in daze somehow
I seen the light
I know what’s right
coz everything’s gonna be ok

Chorus

She said, she said
what’s that in your hand
and down on one knee
what have you planned for me?
I smiled I said
I love you forever
now more than ever
would you make an honest man of me?

Verse 2

We went away for the weekend
caught a show up the Westend
I sit and wait
anticipate
hope everything’s gonna be ok
It’s hard to find the right time
when everything will be sublime
under fairy lights
she delights
everything’s gonna be ok

=>Chorus
Track Name: Every Cloud
Every Cloud

Verse 1

You didn’t understand the words that went in your ear
They went into your brain then started to disappear
How come it feels so strange when it is your own fault
There’s nothing so strange as making yourself caught
So now your heart is turning into stone
You find it comforting being all alone

Chorus

But the suns still shining
behind every cloud
Yeah there’s silver lining
in everything we say and we do
So let the sun shine in you
Let the sun shine in you

Verse 2

You like to isolate yourself in the cold
you try and change but cannot break the mould
Familiarity is making your contempt breed
it cuts so deep to make sure that you bleed
So now your wondering what’s it all about
the silence is deafening the words that you shout

=>Chorus

Bridge

You didn’t notice
You didn’t notice
You didn’t notice
that the sun always shines
It’s shining
shining

=>Chorus
Track Name: Daydreamer
Daydreamer

Verse 1

You were like a rock
set on an idea
But time it changes
erodes you year by year
Words don’t come easy
when you’ve got nothing to say
words don’t come easy
when your breath is taken away

Chorus

So come on, come on, come on
Daydreamer
what you gonna do to make your dreams come true
Go on, go on, go on
Daydreamer
what’s the point of dreaming if it makes you blue

Verse 2

We’ve got no time to love
no not anymore
we can’t forget to love
or we’ll rot to the core
You’ve got what it takes
But cannot find the time
Put it off another day
well tomorrow will be fine

=> Chorus

Bridge

You’ve got to forget
All that you regret
Leave it all behind

Verse 3

Chasing rainbows
for the pot of gold
Chasing your tail
until you are too old
Now you’ve settled down
your unsettled inside
Now your comfortable
the itch cant be denied

=> Chorus
Track Name: Peace of Mind
Peace of Mind

Verse 1

I don’t mean to be selfish
But I’ll find my own way
Please try and be patient
Coz’ that’s just my way

Chorus

Could you find peace of mind that way?
Could you find it in your heart to stay?

Verse 2

I don’t want to promise
Or it might break
I’m here before you
with my heart ache

=> Chorus

Verse 3

(she said)
I’ll stand beside you
I wont leave you alone
I still love you
despite all you’ve thrown

=> Chorus
Track Name: Shell
Shell

Verse 1

I think I’m loosing touch
with the things I can taste
the smells all around me
seem to be a waste
I’m feeling insecure
I’m looking for the cure
I’m searching for the home
where I’m not alone
Well sticks and stones
may break my bones
but words will offend
so please be my friend
I’m seeing red
through all this hatred
It’s driving me insane
with no one left to blame

Chorus

Hey you, what do you see
When you look at me
I’m not
who I could be
‘Coz I am just a shell
I’m just the shell
of who I could be

Verse 2

My head is in the clouds
the clouds are so low
It’s hard to know which
which way to go
which way is which
which way to turn
the itch you cant itch
the yearn you can’t yearn
Well dog eat dog
is a mans best friend
so no- man walks alone
‘coz were all on the mend
This Déjà vu
seems brand new
coz’ we all want conclusion
to this confusion

=>Chorus
Track Name: Today I'm Smiling
Today I’m Smiling

Verse 1

Today
The sun is shining
In the sky
and in my heart
Now
I am smiling
on my face
within my heart

Chorus

Today
all my cares have flown away
You say
there’s no point in frowning
sometimes I think I’m drowning
but today at least
I’m smiling, oh yeah
I’m smiling

Verse 2

Take
A look at this picture
and keep it
in your heart
If now
could be tomorrow
forever I
would wear a smile

=>Chorus
Track Name: Photo of Last September
Photo of Last September

Verse 1

It’s a nice day
lets go out
call up our friends
see who’s about
The sun is shining
not a cloud in sight
summers in the air
lets go somewhere
Its such a nice day
lets not waste it
inside

Chorus

If only everyday
could be like this
not a care in the world
having fun like
when we were kids
Maybe today
could be a day
to remember
when we look at the photo
of last September
September

Verse 2

Sipping on a rum
chilling having fun
hanging on the beach
enjoying the sun
Long hot summer day
melting away
everybody’s here
wish we could all stay
Its such a nice day
lets not waste it
inside

=>Chorus

Bridge

Well you know today
we are carefree
there no better way
to be
Fun fun fun
in the sun
if only everyday
could be like this

=>Chorus
Track Name: The Ever After
The Ever After

Verse 1

We’ve come a long way
together, baby
we’ve seen so many things
shared so many dreams
I love you now
more than anything

Chorus

This is the ever after
my love
it’s the beginning its not the end
Let’s walk into
the sunset
like they do in the movies

Verse 2

We’ve had our ups and downs
it’s made us stronger
so now here we stand
together forever
I love you now
more than anything

Verse 1

You are the seed that I sow
We are the water let you grow
give us your life in our hands
we will love you all we can
your our master plan

Chorus

There will always be a home in our hearts
Something was missing but we’ve found it now
something was gone but we’ve got it now
the missing piece has been placed now

Verse 2

You are a miracle of love
We thank heaven up above
we would do anything for you
your life made our lives complete
we are brand new

=> Chorus

Outro

some day your fly
some day your fly
some day your fly
away
there will always be a home in our hearts
something was missing but we’ve found it now
