Track Name: Weather The Storm
When the wind blows and it's gone
And we're left here with a song
Talked about things moving on
Hold our hands tight and carried on

As the sun set on the sea
Lay and watched it silently
Sometimes there's no need to speak
We just listen to our hearts beat

And the waves come crashing down
Over this shelter with its cracks and holes and
Water pours in, soaked to the skin
Weather the storm till its broken

It grows dark and we go home
Feeling small but not alone
There's so much we'll never know
But there's so far we can go

And the waves come crashing down
Over this shelter with its cracks and holes and
Water pours in, soaked to the skin
Weather the storm till its broken

As the dawn turns into day
And we pack our dreams away
There's a warmth here that remains
And we both know, we'll be ok
Yeah we both know, it's all ok
Track Name: Rise Above It
See you looking at me, see a star
Shining brighter
Seeing everything that you could be
Feeling lighter

Show me your soul
Let it all go
I just wanna rise above it
I just wanna rise above it

Show me your soul
Let it all go
I just wanna rise above it
I just wanna rise above it

All the little things that go to make a man
I mislaid them
And I'm trying to find them where I can
Stop the Mayhem
Wond'rin if I can be all I am
Entertaining

One thing's certain I'm not gonna be
Making tracks now

Show me your soul
Let it all go

(Solo)

I just wanna rise above it
Track Name: So What
Let me speak, you are not listening
Let me speak, it's not the end of things
Let it breathe and feel it opening up
Let it be and don't you dare give up now

Let it out, don't be afraid to howl into the wind
Scream and shout, cos we are all afraid of the dark at times

So what if you don't live up
To something someone made up
So what if it's not enough, it's a start
So what if they all give up, it's not your
fault

Let me speak, you are not listening
Let me speak, it's not the end of everything

Let it out, don't be afraid to howl into the wind
Scream and shout, cos we are all afraid of the dark at times

So what if you don't live up
To something someone made up
So what if it's not enough, it's a start
So what if they all give up, it's not your
fault

(breakdown)

So what if you don't live up
To something someone made up
So what if it's not enough
at least we're out doing stuff
So what if it all falls down
we don't need to hang around
so what if you never knew
would you be a different you
So what if they all give up
it's not your
fault
Track Name: Little Things
Building castles in the air
One day we'll be sitting there
Living life like we just don't care
Everything's alright

Swimming on against the tide
All that stops us is our pride
Butterflies flutter inside as we face the light

I never dared to dream
Life was a thing I'd seen from far away
But from our opening scene
We followed a different theme everyday

It's all in the little things you see
Find them in everything
You reach out and touch
Remember so much
This isn't a dream

Jumping in four feet at a time
Following a crooked line
This is yours as much as it's mine
and it's here right now

Dancing on into the dawn
It's another storyboard drawn
Every minute leaves me wanting more
That's what life's about

I never dared to dream
Life was a thing I'd seen from far away
But from our opening scene
We've followed a different theme everyday

It's all in the little things you see
Find them in everything
You reach out and touch
Remember so much
This isn't a dream

You reach out and touch
You want it so much
It's not what it seems

You reach out and touch
Remember so much
This isn't a dream
Track Name: Right From The Start
Find a way on
Find a way to show yourself
Take the day on
Time is something you'll never own

See the difference
See the choice you always had to make
In the distance
All you wanted there in a heart beat

You are not alone
Fear is not a home
You are not alone
Make this life your own

Feel it moving
Wonder how you ever let it be
Slowly proving
You were always right from the start

You are not alone
Fear is not a home
You are not alone
Make this life your own

You're not alone
Break this face of stone
You're not alone
Underneath's your own

Find a way on
Find a way to show yourself
Take the day on
You will start to know yourself
Track Name: Here & Now
I am tired weary
It's a very long day
And my eyes are getting tired now
but I don't want to go away

I know that you need me to hold you
And tell you it'll be ok
But I don't know what I can tell you
Cos it's already all been said

You have to trust in how you feel
You have to know that this is real
There's no one else but you and me here now
And that is all that counts

I hate to know that's how you're feeling
It's hurts inside when you are down
There's nothing more you need to give me
You make me smile just being around

So close your eyes and get some sleep now
And I'll be here when you awake
Tomorrow and each day that follows
It's not a sacrifice I make

You have to trust in how you feel
You have to know that this is real
There's no one else but you and me here now
And that is all that counts

(solo)

And that is all that counts
