Track Name: Dolphins
I dive like a dolphin
Into and out of the waves
I feel the rush of the ocean
Coursing through my veins

Get out of my way…
I’m alive once more…
Get out of my way…
Honey I want more…
For the times that I was honest
Open
Strongest
Enamoured by you…
Get out of my way… love

Can you taste the saltwater
Now that it’s all that remains
Well that’s the crest of a deep swell
Breaking through your skin

Get out of my way…
I’m alive once more…
Get out of my way…
Honey I want more…
For the times that I was honest
Open
Strongest
Enamoured by you…
Get out of my way… love

Get out of my way… love
Get out of my way… love
Get out of my way… love
Get out of my way… love, love, love

(Don’t stop until you start believing
Can’t stop to fight through the feeling)
Track Name: Feel Like Dancing?
You're dancing to the groove
Pulling crazy mad moves
Oh, uh huh
There’s something I like
It’s you that I like
I kick off my shoes
I’ve been waiting for a girl like you
It’s you that I like

You’re sending your advances
To the boy deep inside
I was lost out here
Feeling lonely inside
Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing

I’ll spin you right around
And slide you up and down
Oh, uh huh
There’s something I like
It’s you that I like
I’ve never been a mover
But dancing now with you I am Elvis
It’s you that I like

You’re sending your advances
To the boy deep inside
I was lost out here
Feeling lonely inside
Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing with you
Tonight I feel like dancing with you

Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing with you
Tonight I feel like dancing with you

Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing
Tonight I feel like dancing with you
Tonight I feel like dancing with you

(Things are looking up now I’m here with you
I don’t want to catch my breath here dancing with you)
Track Name: Wishing Well
Who’s gonna haunt me now
Come alive with the wind in your sails
The desert rains beat down
Tracing your face in the sand

I remember your eyes…
The way they still wanted me…
And I wish I could’ve been that man
You said you saw in me…
I sewed your tears into my heart…
In the hope they’d encompass me…
My very own wishing well
Where I burn a candle

I feel your fingers upon me now
Run their course down the nape of my neck
Who am I to be a cynic
This could be the limit of love

I remember your eyes…
The way they still wanted me…
And I wish I could’ve been that man
You said you saw in me…
I sewed your tears into my heart…
In the hope they’d encompass me…
My very own wishing well
Where I burn a candle

Who’s gonna haunt me now
Come alive with the wind in your sails
Who am I to be a cynic
This could be the limit of love

I remember your eyes…
The way they still wanted me…
And I wish I could’ve been that man
You said you saw in me…
I sewed your tears into my heart…
In the hope they’d encompass me…
My very own wishing well
Where I burn a candle
Where I burn
Where I burn a candle
Where I burn
Where I burn a candle
How I wish you well
Ooh girl
Your my wishing well

This moment, that magic
Keeps burning me still
I’ve been lost here in silence
It’s made me feel ill
Yes it’s more than just science
It’s blood, sex and triumph too
Track Name: The Truth
Time is no-one’s business
Stop begging for forgiveness
You’re back to twist my melon again
It’s so strange that I could love you
Strange that I could need you
Strange that I could love you, more
I could never love you
I could never love you, more
And here we go

I can’t stand it
But that’s the way it has to be…
Oh, I got lost in the magic
Caught in a reverie…
You’re chasing my shadow
I’m taller than you’ll ever be…
I don’t need no answer
The truth lies inside of me…

I came in here with nothing
You fool you gave me something
Dancing after midnight again
It’s so strange that I could love you
Strange that I could need you
Strange that I could love you, more
I could never love you
I could never love you, more
And here we go

I can’t stand it
But that’s the way it has to be…
Oh, I got lost in the magic
Caught in a reverie…
You’re chasing my shadow
I’m taller than you’ll ever be…
I don’t need no answer
The truth lies inside of me…

(The truth my dear is I’ve been waiting most of my life. I’ve been hiding, waiting for you to accept. Time has nothing to do with you. And you know what? It doesn’t matter. The truth is inside me! The truth is inside me!)

We’ll touch the painted sky
And we’ll climb higher…
We’ll touch the painted sky
And we’ll climb higher…

Oh, the truth lies inside of
Truth lies inside of me…
Oh, the truth lies inside of
Truth lies inside of me…
Oh, the truth lies inside of
Truth lies inside of me…
Oh, the truth lies inside of
Truth lies inside of me…
Track Name: This Is the Life
Well have you asked yourself
What makes you a man
And as you contemplate
Do you have plans?
The world won’t stop
To let you off
So stop staring out your window…
Staring out your window…

Whatever it takes
Before we fall
We’ve got the notion now
We’re invincible
Shout it loud
It’s time to getaway
This is the life we’re after…
Come to the love
Come to the light
This is the life we’re after…

Well have you found yourself
There praying again
Or have you still got faith
And that never ends
What if a great woman
Could find you too
But she’s not here to save you…
She’s not here to save you…

Whatever it takes
Before we fall
We’ve got the notion now
We’re invincible
Shout it loud
It’s time to getaway
This is the life we’re after…
Come to the love
Come to the light
This is the life we’re after…

This is the life we’re after…
This is the life we’re after…
(Enter the love, enter the light)

Whatever it takes
Before we fall
We’ve got the notion now
We’re invincible
Shout it loud
It’s time to getaway
This is the life we’re after…
Come to the love
Come to the light
This is the life we’re after…

(You can change it now this life is yours
If you’re too strung out and sensible
Cos time won’t wait for you my friends
There’s a light out here that’s beautiful…
There’s a light out here that’s beautiful…
There’s a light out here that’s beautiful…
There’s a light out here that’s beautiful…
There’s a light out here that’s beautiful…)
Track Name: Beyond the Kush
If there’s magic in me
Why can I not see
Through the coconut trees
Dancing on my stereo
A lebanese lover
Beauty undercover
That’s how the sandstorm blows

I hear the voices
The voices of Babylon
Beyond the desert Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the desert Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the Kush
Beyond the desert

If the truth that you seek
Finds it’s faith in me
As the monkey nuts speak
Chasing me in monotone
A seven seas wonder
Left to be discovered
That’s where the sandstorm blows

I hear the voices
The voices of Babylon
Beyond the desert Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the desert Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the Kush
Beyond the desert

Open your eyes
There is love
There is light
In the darkest of nights
I hear it in the voices…
I hear the voices…
I hear the voices…
I hear the voices…

I hear the voices
The voices of Babylon
Beyond the desert Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the desert Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the Kush
Beyond the desert
Beyond the Kush
Beyond the desert

(Sometimes the sun gets in your eyes
The curtains close and carpets fly)
Track Name: The Helios Door
Are you just like me
You want to be free
You scan the horizons
In search of the Helios door
We don’t count time

It seems we’ve always known there is more…

Inner light…
Rushes at me through the flames
My synapses fire in my brain…
And baby we wanted this
It’s immortal bliss
There’s no pain…
The Helios door
The Helios door…

We’re so frightened to see
Truth and reality
We move through the world
As chameleons hiding our hands
Hassassin cold blood

Hand in hand we walk through the door…

Inner light…
Rushes at me through the flames
My synapses fire in my brain…
And baby we wanted this
It’s immortal bliss
There’s no pain…
The Helios door
The Helios door…

Inner light…
Rushes at me through the flames
My synapses fire in my brain…
And baby we wanted this
It’s immortal bliss
There’s no pain…
The Helios door
The Helios door…

(Because the night
It hides the knives
Let’s touch the light
Let’s touch the light)
Track Name: Could This Be Love?
It’s too early in the morning
We’re fed up of talking
The tears streaming down your face
Say there’s only so much, we can take
Is it too late?

Oh baby I love you dear
But I can’t find the words to say ‘I love you’ this time
And I’m hurting inside

Just shut-up and kiss me my love
Before the fire expires again
Could this be love…
Could this be love…

It’s like we’ve been here before this
And our fate keeps on calling
For the real truth is hard to take
When you want to give up, please just wait
It’s not too late

And it’s never been so clear to me
There’s a darkness that we both bleed shall we let the light in?
Embrace the cool scent of sin?

Just shut-up and kiss me my love
Before the fire expires again
Could this be love…
Could this be love…

For the moments and the madness
I never knew we’d feel ashamed
For everything we’ve said and done
Why does it hurt so much?
Higher, higher
Baby I’m burning
Fire, Fire
Baby I’m burning
And you know I’ll always love you
And I know I’ll always need you
I can feel our hearts hurting
From the moment we kissed
Could this be love…
Could this be love…

Higher, higher
Baby I’m burning
Fire, Fire
Baby I’m burning
And you know I’ll always love you
And I know I’ll always need you
I can feel our hearts hurting
From the moment we kissed
Could this be love…
Could this be love…

(Open your eyes again
(Repeat)
Baby how I want you
Baby how I need you
(Repeat))
Track Name: Let the Light in
You know there’s something wrong
In the bottom of this pit
For all that they have taught you
You know you’re more than this
Bring out your vision
Dance before the mission
Where the light comes in

Sparks fly, your nervous now…
Arms wide, you can let the light in…
Sparks fly, your nervous now…
Arms wide, you can let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…

So don’t you take the blame
For finding you don’t fit
They think that they can own you
But their just talking shit
Bring out your vision
Dance before the mission
Where the light comes in

Sparks fly, your nervous now…
Arms wide, you can let the light in…
Sparks fly, your nervous now…
Arms wide, you can let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…

Let the Light…
Let the Light…
Let the light in…

Sparks fly, your nervous now…
Arms wide, you can let the light in…
Sparks fly, your nervous now…
Arms wide, you can let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…

Let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light in…

(Let the light in…
Let the light…
Let the Light in…
Let the light in…
Let the light…
Let the Light in…)
Track Name: Words
You sat amongst them
You came to protest
You came to tell them let’s stop dealing in bombs
You sat there with them
You got trapped among them
You sat there gasping inflating your bonds
And now you know how it feels to fall into fire

You said you’d tell them
Exactly how it was
But now you’re sat there
Eating all your words
Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire…
Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire…

You sat amongst them
You drank it with them
You downed the poison that’s blinded your eyes
You sat amongst them
You got fat amongst them
You sat there laughing inflating the lies
And now you know how it feels to fall into fire

You said you’d tell them
Exactly how it was
But now you’re sat there
Eating all your words
Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire…
Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire…

No man should ever walk alone
No man should ever have to walk by themselves to face such darkness
For we shall be there with you and together we will make our stand
For this is what makes us human
We are afraid but not scared to fight for what is right
And we shall beam a beacon of light
For even in our darkest hour
We will not suffer
We will not fail
For we are together
A part of what makes us whole
For even here with nothing
They cannot take everything
We still have our words

Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire
Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire
Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire
Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire
You said you’d tell them
Exactly how it was
But now you’re sat there
Eating all your words
Words that come between us
Words could set the world on fire…
Fire…
Fire…
