Track Name: Deliver Me Sunshine
Deliver me sunshine
Don't you send me no rain
Oh can't you see by the state I'm in
I need your sweet loving again
Deliver me blue sky
Don't you send me no grey
It's been a long while since I've seen your smile
That turns my night into day

I need you here when the lightning strikes
I need you here when it's cold at night
I need you here just to hold me tight
Until the forecast is looking bright

Deliver me sunshine
Forget the wind and the rain
I need you here for the rest of my life
Ies i need your sweet loving again
I need you here for the rest of my life
Yes i need your sweet loving again
Track Name: Steady As She Goes
Bye Bye Bye I'm leaving it behind
Time Time Time Time's not on my side
Steady as she goes
Swaying to and fro
I'm heading for the sunshine and the waves

Ride Ride Ride I'm going on a ride
High High High I'm reaching for the sky
Steady as she goes
Swaying to and fro
I don't want to rock the boat I'm moving on

Free Free Free I've set my spirit free
Me Me Me Is where I want to be
Steady as she goes
Swaying to and fro
No-one here to tell me what to do
Steady as she goes
Swaying to and fro
Hoping that my dreams will all come true
Track Name: Paris
You took the night train to Paris
You never left a note
You know it's hard loving someone like you
Oh I've just got to forget you

Everywhere I see reminders
With every drop of rain that falls
Can't concentrate loving you as I do
Oh I've just got to forget you

You always seem to be the one
The one thing shining high above
And now I feel I've just become
Another victim of your love

You took the night train to Paris
Track Name: Head In The Clouds
Wandering round with my feet off the ground
Nobody up here to see
I'm free as a bird and I'm singing out loud
No-one can hear me but me

Don't give me signs about coming back down
There's really no point and no need
All that I have is my head in the clouds
Move along nothing to see

I woke up this morning don't have the blues
Lying here dreaming all day
No-one just left me got nothing to lose
That's just how I want things to stay

Everything's best in my own little world
Star of my very own show
Don't need the camera the lights or the girl
They're telling me 'it's time to go'
Track Name: It's a Small World
I'm not making waves for a small town girl
Who ain't got nothing in this whole wide world
Running around and you're causing a scene
You're foolin' no-one I know where you've been

You can't find a place - woh ho ho
There just ain't nowhere you can hide your face
And if you think you're free
Oh it's a small world and you're sure, you're sure to find me
La La La La La
La La La La La

You ain't got money and you haven't a clue
I'll tell the others what I'm telling you
You can't escape from this world of mine
You'll be my prisoner for a long long time

And if you find the door - woh ho ho
Can't you see what I'm waiting for
So if you think you're free
Oh it's a small world and you're sure, you're sure to find me
La La La La La
Track Name: It Might Be You
It might be you in my dreams tonight
I want to sleep and find you there
When all is said and done I think I've found someone
It might be you, it might be you

It might be you I'm looking for
I know it's taken me a while
So if I run and hide that's when I can't decide
It might be you, it might be you

It might be you I'm thinking of
You might just be the one I love
And every time I try to find the reason why
It might be you, it might be you
I've got a clue it might be you
Yes it's true it might be you
Track Name: House on the Hill
When the winters were cold and the summers were long
Childhood memories where have they gone
Was I just dreaming it all feels so real
At the house on the hill

I remember the garden the lake by the swings
Days filled with laughter the funniest things
We danced to the music, I'm dancing there still
At the house on the hill

There's a house on a hill stands empty and cold
For too many years this story I've told
But what use are memories when nothing is real
At the house on the hill
That day on the water when my time stood still
At the house on the hill
Track Name: In Between
Gotta know if I'm staying or just passing through
I don't have much time gotta lot of things to do
You know what I'm saying
You know what I mean
You know that I'm just - in between

I can't settle down I've lived a life that's free
Everyone I get to know they just don't know me
I'm not one for staying
And living the dream
You know that I'm just - in between

Is it day or night, is it left or right
(going where life takes me)
Do I laugh or cry, I'm feeling so low to get high

My life is my own nothing to declare
I'm travelling all the way ending up no-where
I'm not one for shouting
You won't hear me scream
You know I'm just - in between
Track Name: Back To Square One
Some things in life that can't be found
You're looking too high so look on the ground
There's always a clue to the way that you do it
The answer is there it's just how you use it

Money can't make you happy
Sure you can have your fun
But when you've got all you wanted
You'll be back, back to square one
Track Name: Decades
I sit at my piano to try to write a song
I can't think of a melody the chords all turn out wrong
And I haven't found a genre, I'm looking for a style
I don't believe I'm getting to, anything I like

But I try, yes I try
I'm waiting for a miracle to keep this dream alive
And I try, oh I try
There's far too many failures to keep me satisfied

I know it sounds familiar, I'm sure it's all been done
But I've been here for decades to find the perfect song
So I'm sat at this piano still searching for a tune
I've never had a 'yesterday' or 'sunny afternoon'

And I'm thinking out the box, I'll take it on the chin
When nobody is listening, the doubt starts creeping in
And I'm running out of options, I wish I didn't care
There's only one thing left to do, I think I'll leave it there

But I try, oh I try
If only I could stay here and play for you a while
Yes I try, and I try
I've got nothing here to show you, am I wasting all my time?
