Track Name: Longings Gone
Longings Gone

When everything is over love
and the longings long gone
and the clear blue light of the morn spills in
and hands fall down

Take care of your heart
in the moments we part
say a prayer for the road
its a long way home you go

When everything is over love
and the longings long gone
and the warmth of my beds gone cold
and the day is gone long

Take care of my heart
in the moments we part
say a prayer for the road
its a long way home we go

When everything is over love
and the longings long gone
when everything is still love
and the longings is gone

Every story needs a villian
I never meant you to be mine
lets go back to the beginning
and we can rewrite this time

when everything is over love
and the longings long gone.
Track Name: Our Places
Our Places

These are our places
our sacred spaces
our hidden places
where we unfold

So let me, take you
so let me, take you

To where, damsel flies
and fennel seeds
and skylarks sings
and blackbird feeds, until
and the sun goes down

Where paths and rivers
bend and meet
and ferns unfold
and lovers meet, to take
tender times

'Cause these are our places
our sacred spaces
our hidden places
where we unfold

Where we unfold
where we unfold
where we unfold
where we unfold

I close my eyes and step inside
the places painted in my mind
that's where, and our hearts are free
where time is hushed
and hedgerows hold
the whisper's of our, stories old
and days, that never end

'Cause these are our places
our sacred spaces
our hidden places
where we belong
where we belong
where we belong

So let me, take you
so let me,take
let me take you home.
Track Name: In Its Time
In It's Time

We all have our fantasies
We all have our dreams
We all our have our illusions
As long as they stay that way.

And we swore all our days
And we swore all our lives
And we swore, to the heavens
We'd never change.

We all have those fantasies
We all have those daydreams
Promises to keep,
Songs that never sleep.

And we swore to be true
And we swore I love you
And we swore, to the heavens
We'd never change.
But I can see in your eyes
Oh and the way your smile hides
I can see, time it has changed.

I still have my fantasies
Still have my daydreams
Lost in my thoughts
Lost in fairy wings

And we all say I do
And we all say I love you,
Then we wish, wish it to change.

Still have those fantasies
Still have those dreams
Say everything in its time
Everything in its time.

And every time has its moment
And every moment has its time
And we wish, things would last
And we know, time it won't last.
Track Name: Waterfall
Waterfall

I kissed you once
and I kissed you again
as if the years
had never passed
I hold your hand
I hold you hand
as the waterfall, moves though the land

'Cause it feels like, we're falling in love
oh it feels like, we're falling in love

The river runs fast
but you know
time it slows in this place
where hopes and dreams are made
and there's no fools gold
and no angels fear to tread
in this land
in this land of ours

'Cause it feels like
we're falling in love
oh it feels like
we're falling in love
oh it feels like
we're falling
we're falling
we're falling in love

'Cause now we return
our, our hands are held together
oh our hearts as one
'cause time moves on
but our love is strong
oh like a river
it goes on and on

'Cause we've fallen
we've fallen in love
oh we've fallen
we've fallen in love
oh we fallen
deep in
deep in
deep in love.
Track Name: Wild Dog Rose
Wild Dog Rose

I'm sure I've tried my best
sure I've worked harder than the rest
just to find
Oh to find some peace of mind

Just to find
Oh to find some peace of mind

I'm trying harder every day
how many times have I
got down on my knees
oh and asked for some grace please
down on my knees
Oh and asked for some grace place.

Can I just stay for a rest
lay my head down to the West
and look up at the stars
oh and remember who we are
oh look up at the stars
and remember who we are.

Please don't give yourself away
have faith in what you know
and that faith will surely grow
like a Wild Dog Rose
Oh that faith will surely grow
like a Wild Dog Rose

Oh that faith will surely grow
like a Wild Dog Rose
oh like a Wild Dog Rose x 3
Track Name: River of Dreams
River of Dreams

Following the river down stream
your chasing your wide eyed dreams
chasing everything
baby, tell me how it all unfolds
tell me where you go
When you follow the river down stream
When your following the river of dreams

Cause, stars are shining
and rainbows hum
but there's no pot of gold
where we come from
where we come from

Following the river down stream
your chasing your wide eyed dreams
chasing everything
baby, tell me how your story goes
let us know how it really unfolds
as you follow the river down stream
as your traveling on a river of dreams

Close your eyes
and you will see
there ain't nothing
that you can't, already be
close your eyes, your already there

Following the river of dreams
following the river of dreams
travelling down the river of dreams
travelling down the river of dreams

Following the river down stream
chasing your wide eyed dreams,
chasing everything
baby, don't go to far from home
be careful where you roam
when you follow the river down stream
Oh when your travelling on the river of dreams.
Track Name: Somewhere
Somewhere

Just because you might love me

Just because you might see me

Just a blind belief that you might still need me

Like the arch in the sound of time

that was banging a rhythm to the end of the line

Just so you might feel me

Just so you might reach me

Its like an arch in the sound of time

banging a rhythm to the end of the line

And just because I crashed to soon

I never really wrote the tune

I said I would

Said I would

Just because you might love me

Just because you might see me

Just a blind belief that you might still need me

Like the arch, in the sound of time

banging a rhythm, to the end of the line

that had to go somewhere

that had to go somewhere

Its like an arch in the sound of time

banging a rhythm to the end of the line

Just because you might love me
Track Name: Nant Ddu
Nant Ddu

I came to this place
looking for meaning and faith
I came to this place
looking for healing and grace

Put your arms around me
put your arms around this tree
and we'll fall, fall into the arms of love
oh we'll fall, fall into the roots of love

I found a feather
oh a feather it found me
with one foot on this Welsh hillside
oh with one foot in the stream

Put your arms around me
put your arms around this Yew Tree
and we'll fall, fall into the arms of love
oh we'll fall, fall into the roots of the earth
oh we'll fall, fall into the arms of love

I came here looking for sound
oh but sound it found me
I came here looking for peace
oh and a place to be

Put your arms around me
put your arms around this Yew Tree
And we'll fall, fall into the arms of love
oh we'll fall, fall into the roots of love
oh we'll fall, fall into the arms of love

Oh we'll fall, fall into the arms of love
oh we'll fall, fall into the roots of the earth
oh we'll fall, fall into the arms of love.
Track Name: Along The Way
Along The Way

So many friends we've lost
so many friends we've lost along the way
to this place

So many hearts we've broke
so many hearts we've broke along the way
to this place
along the way, to this place

You know the sea was cold
and the sky it was fire red
the day they came
but all the fire
all the fire in the world
won't warm my love
all the fire, won't warm my love

So many tears we've cried
so many songs, we've sang along the way
to this place
along the way, to this place.
Track Name: Our Places Live
Our Places Live

These are our places
our sacred spaces
our hidden places
where we unfold

So let me, take you x 2

To where, damsel flies
and fennel seeds
and skylarks sings
and blackbird feeds, until
and the sun goes down

Where paths and rivers
bend and meet
and ferns unfold
and lovers meet, to take
tender times

'Cause these are our places
our sacred spaces
our hidden places
where we unfold

so let me, take you x 2

I close my eyes, step back in time
to troubled streets and troubled times
where we, we used to play
where songs and stories cut right through
the barricades that we'd all come to know
when we've grown

'Cause these are our places
our sacred spaces
and our hidden places
where we unfold
Where we unfold x 4

I close my eyes and step inside
the places painted in my mind
that's where, and our hearts where free
where time is hushed
and hedgerows hold
the whisper's of our, stories old
and days, that never end

'Cause these are our places
our sacred spaces
our hidden places
where we belong x 3

So let me, take you
so let me,take
oh let me take you home x 2
