Track Name: City Lights
I can remember, not long ago
Back in the city, in the days of old
And I hope, you’ll be there

All the city lights, we will follow this time
All the city lights, we will follow this time

I don’t know why, it’s been so long
Since I’ve been away, since I’ve come back from
And I hope, you’ll be there

All the city lights, we will follow this time
All the city lights, we will follow this time

All the city lights, we will follow this time
All the city lights, we will follow this time

I can remember, not long ago
Back in the city, in the days of old
Track Name: Wandering By
A new day, a new morning
Has begun and has come
So let’s get through this together
And see where it can take us from

I’ll be fine wandering through the morning
I’ll be fine wandering by

So let’s have another beginning
To start from where the last one did end
Cross over bridges and many rivers
Move on from where we began

I’ll be fine wandering through the morning
I’ll be fine wandering by

Could this be, the day when I find
You’ll be here, the day I arrive

I’ll be fine wandering through the morning
I’ll be fine wandering by
Track Name: Hold On
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

You were telling me more than I ever want to know
You were telling me more than I ever want to know
Sometimes it can be hard to please
Sometimes it can be hard to please

It was happening too fast, happening too fast
I don’t know where to turn

Hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

I feel that it may never be the same
It cannot be the same
Like it was before
Like it was before

It was happening too fast, happening too fast
I don’t know where to turn

Hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Track Name: Nothing I Can Do Or Say
Walking down this road all alone
Thinking about how it went wrong
Not as easy as it seems
I think about it in my dreams

Nothing I can do or say
Will get you back again
Nothing I can do to persuade
Will get you back again

I don’t mind if you find me here
If you ever will arrive
Not as easy as it was
I think about it just because

Nothing I can do or say
Will get you back again
Nothing I can do to persuade
Will get you back again

Walking down this road all alone
Thinking about how it went wrong
Not as easy as it seems
I think about it in my dreams

Nothing I can do or say
Will get you back again
Nothing I can do to persuade
Will get you back again
Nothing I can do or say
Will get you back again
Track Name: Pass Away
I’m a day dreamer, all of the time
Nothing I can do, but dream all my life
I don’t know another way

Tonight will pass away
Just like the other nights and days
That pass away

I thought about you, but I like it here
So many people, year after year
I don’t know another way

Tonight will pass away
Just like the other nights and days
That pass away

That pass away...
Track Name: For Now
I moved from the hills to the mountains
Somewhere different than before
I walk deep into the forest
Hear the sound of a distant call

From village to village
Town to town
Tell me who will guide me

For now, for now
For now, for now

I meet many people on my way
An old man who tells me take a different way
I follow the stream through the valley
And I got lost in the valley

From village to village
Town to town
Tell me who will guide me

For now, for now
For now, for now

Maybe it’s time to turn the page
Make a note of everyday
Make a note of my mistakes

I often think and I wonder
How life has changed for me now
I think of what I used to know
My life for me in a different town

From village to village
Town to town
Tell me who will guide me?

For now, for now ...
Track Name: Laughter In The Dark
Here it comes again
You heard it from afar
No time to stop it then
Or for a change of heart

Well, well
Well, well
Well, well

There’s laughter in the dark
They listen to what you say
There’s laughter in the dark
Once again

It’s been on your mind
For really quite some time
No more of these days
Was what you had to say

Well, well...

There’s laughter in the dark
They listen to what you say
There’s laughter in the dark
Once again

There’s laughter in the dark
They listen to what you say
There’s laughter in the dark
Once again

There’s laughter in the dark
They listen to what you say
There’s laughter in the dark
Once again

And now the time has come
To finish and be done
For it may never end
And be too late
Track Name: If You Leave Today
Can’t you see me with my head in my hands
So many tears over the floor, the floor

For if you leave today
I don’t know what that leaves for tomorrow
For tomorrow may bring
The things that have yet to come, that have yet to come

I wish that you were back here in my arms
We’d be together safe from any harm, from any harm

For if you leave today
I don’t know what that leaves for tomorrow
For tomorrow may bring
The things that have yet to come, that have yet to come

Now I can’t decide
If I should be here or there
If I should be here or if I should be there

You left with nothing to say
Don’t tear me apart and leave me this way, this way

For if you leave today
I don’t know what that leaves for tomorrow
For tomorrow may bring
The things that have yet to come

For if you leave today
I don’t know what that leaves for tomorrow
For tomorrow may bring
The things that have yet to come, that have yet to come
Track Name: Slow River
Remember yesterday
And the things that surround
By the slow river

I really miss the people there
And the things that go on there
By the slow river

I will return, to the place where we were
It moves and turns all along

I get things off my mind
I can always take my time
By the slow river

I will return, to the place where we were
It moves and turns all along

I hope that it will never change
And always remain the same
That when I get back
It’ll be like it was

By the slow river...
Track Name: He Was A Friend Of Mine
He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Every time I think about him
I just can’t keep from crying
Cause he was a friend of mine

He died on the road
He died on the road
He never had enough money
To pay his room or board
He was a friend of mine

I stole away and cried
I stole away and cried
For I never had enough money
And I’ve never been satisfied
He was a friend of mine

He never done no wrong
He never done no wrong
A thousand miles from home
And he never harmed anyone
He was a friend of mine

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Every time I think about him
I just can’t keep from crying
Cause he was a friend of mine
Track Name: Rain Dance
Away from the storm
The night it comes upon
No more sunny day
Just a sheet a blanket full of grey

But a rain dance, might bring it all this way
Might bring it all this way
A rain dance, might bring it all this way
Might bring it all this way

Pours down in the field
The relentlessness I feel
Haven’t felt the heat for days
Only the wind and rain

But a rain dance, might bring it all this way
Might bring it all this way
A rain dance, might bring it all this way
Might bring it all this way

As the clouds disappear
Not like this has it been for many years
The sun beams down on my face
Stormy clouds disappear without a trace

But a rain dance, might bring it all this way
Might bring it all this way
A rain dance, might bring it all this way
Might bring it all this way
Track Name: Train Won't Stop
I keep on moving no where I’ll stop
I caught this train but it won’t let me off, no
I don’t know where I’m heading or where I’ll be
For this train keeps rolling, so don’t you wait for me

I notice things are very strange
And that they are no longer the same
I don’t know where I’m heading or where I’ll be
For this train keeps rolling, so don’t you wait for me
Don’t you wait for me!

I wish I’d never ever got on here
I wish I’d never ever got on here

Time moves on at a furious pace
I wonder what will happen to this place
I don’t know where I’m heading or where I’ll be
For this train keeps rolling, so don’t you wait for me
Don’t you wait for me!
Don’t you wait for me...
Track Name: Free To Do What You Want
Sometimes I find it hard to find my way home
The mist and the trees, and I’m all on my own

Free, to do what you want
To do what you want

You were here, but now you are gone
I look everywhere, I’m now all alone

Free to do what you want
To do what you want

Every time I feel low
Every time I feel low
Every time I feel, low

Now it seems I can’t get away
Nothing for me, here for today

Free, to do what you want
To do what you want
To do what you
Track Name: Carry On
Everything we had has now left and gone
I don’t think that I am so capable

To carry on, carry on, carry on this way
Carry on, carry on, carry on today
Carry on, carry on, carry on, carry on, carry on

These lovely days are no longer so wonderful
As I think of what to do

To carry on, carry on, carry on this way
Carry on, carry on, carry on today
Carry on, carry on, carry on, carry on, carry on

Am I too tired to go on this way
Full of hope but then dismay

To carry on, oh
Carry on, oh...
Track Name: You Can't Let It Go (b side)
You know that I’m a believer,
For all I say is true,
For I just cannot understand,
Why I no longer hear from you,

For you can’t let it go,
To someone else again,
You can’t let it go,
To another place, another part,
Another way to have to start again,

For once in my life I cared for you,
And you cared for me too,
But now it seems, that most of our dreams,
Have been shattered once again,

For you can’t let it go,
To someone else again,
You can’t let it go,
To another place, another part,
Another way to have to start again, again,

You can’t let it go,
To someone else again,
You can’t let it go,
To another place, another part,
Another way to have to start,

You can’t let it go, you can’t let it go...
Track Name: By Your Side (b side)
No where to go but it’s good to be free
I have a hope there’s a place for me

Til I’m by your side
Til I’m by your side

No one else will help me out
All I do is scream and shout

Til I’m by your side
Til I’m by your side

As I walk I think of you
With every step everything I do

Til I’m by your side
Til I’m by your side

All this trouble deep inside
From everywhere around
