Track Name: ONE DAY IN SPRING
One Day In Spring

As i walked out one day in Spring
And All the Birds began to sing about You, about You
They sang of Love they sang Your name
My days would never be the same without You, without You

I really wanna know You
Got things i wanna show You
Sometimes i feel i'm no good baby
But You make a Life worthwhile, when i see You smile

And when we talk, we laugh a lot
You know i'd give You all I've got about me, about me
Spring will come and Spring will go
Just like the Tides that ebb and flow, don't doubt me, don't doubt me

I really wanna know You
Got things i wanna show You
Sometimes i feel i'm no good baby
But You make a Life worthwhile, when i see You smile

You Got It All

As i walked out one day in Spring
And All the Birds began to sing about You, about You

I really wanna know You
Got things i wanna show You
Sometimes i feel i'm no good baby
But You make a Life worthwhile, when i see You smile

You Got It All

AND YOURE MILES FROM HOME
AND YOURE DRUMMING ON THE DASHBOARD

JUST STAY CALM TAKE A BREATH INHALE EXHALE X 2

L.O.S.T

The Worst of Times, the Best of Times
You've been right here, Deep in my Heart
I should've learned...cause I've been Burned

I'd be lost without Your love
I'd be lost without Your love

Facing my Reflection, Embrace the Imperpection
It's down to Us, It's obvious

I'd be lost without Your love
I'd be lost without Your love

And there's no use in Me pretending
I want My story to have a Happy ending...

i say La- la la la la- la la la la Yeah
I say La- la la la la-la la la la Yeah

I'd be lost without Your love
I'd be lost without Your love
I'd be lost without Your love

Love Overcomes Sad Times

Love Overcomes Sad Times

Track Name: HIGHLIGHTS IN HEAVEN
Highlights In Heaven

Everybody leaves here eventually
Everybody leaves here eventually

We'll see the highlights in heaven
We'll see the highlights in heaven

Everybody grieves here for somebody
Everybody grieves here for somebody

Here in the twilight we're living
Here in the twilight we're living

And it always brings me down
When you're not around
See you on the other side
I'll meet you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
I'll meet you on the other side

We'll see the highlights in heaven
We'll see the highlights in heaven

And it always brings me down
When you're not around
I'll see you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
I'll meet you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side

Everybody leaves here eventually
Everybody grieves here for somebody

And it always brings me down

CAROUSEL

OOOOOO SUN IS SHINING DOWN
HEAVEN'S ALL AROUND

YOU AND ME ON A CAROUSEL
WHERE IT STOPS ITS HARD TO TELL
ROUND AND ROUND WE GO
MY HEAD IS SPINNING
BUT THIS IS NOT A FAIRYTALE
I KNOW THAT LOVE CAN NEVER FAIL
TODAY I GET THE FEELING THAT WE'RE WINNING

SO I SAY OOOOOOO SUN IS SHINING DOWN
HEAVEN'S ALL AROUND

PEOPLE SAY THE STRANGEST THINGS
THEIR WORDS CONVEY WHAT DARKNESS BRINGS
HAVE YOU NO MORE JOYFUL WORDS TO SAY TO ME?
CANT YOU FEEL CANT YOU FEEL?
CANT YOU SEE CANT YOU SEE?

OOOOOO SUN IS SHINING DOWN
HEAVEN'S ALL AROUND

Track Name: THE CIRCLE NEVER ENDS
THE CIRCLE NEVER ENDS

ONCE UPON A TIME
THAT'S WHERE MY STORY ENDS
THE MOUNTAIN THAT I'VE CLIMBED
A DIFFERENT VIEW
FROM NOW TO THEN

IT TAKES ME BACK WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN WE WERE FRIENDS
IT TAKES ME BACK TO IT ALL AGAIN
WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN WE WERE FRIENDS

ON STREETS WE USED TO PLAY
RUN AND FIND A HIDEAWAY
IN A FOREST SECRETS KEEP
BY A RIVER RUNNING DEEP

IT TAKES ME BACK WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN WE WERE FRIENDS
IT TAKES ME BACK TO IT ALL AGAIN
WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN WE WERE FRIENDS

MY COLOUR IS NO LONGER BLUE
IN EVERY DAY A RAINBOW'S SHINING THROUGH
NOW IT'S OBVIOUS IT'S TRUE
IT'S SO DIFFERENT FROM THE LIFE THAT I ONCE KNEW

SO TAKE ME AS I AM
THOUGH I'M NOT A PERFECT MAN
I NEED A HELPING HAND
STILL A CHILD INSIDE THE MAN

IT TAKES ME BACK...

NOW WE'VE GOT CHILDREN OF OUR OWN
IT'S A JOY FOR US TO LOVE THEM SO
THESE DAYS YOU NEVER KNOW
HOW LIFE WILL TREAT THEM IN THE FUTURE AS THEY GROW

IT TAKES ME BACK WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN WE WERE FRIENDS
IT TAKES ME BACK TO IT ALL AGAIN
WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN WE WERE FRIENDS

THE CIRCLE NEVER ENDS MY FRIENDS
Track Name: NEVER GO BACK AGAIN
NEVER GO BACK AGAIN

MANY A MILE I TRAVELLED
MANY A TWIST AND TURN
I WATCHED MY LIFE UNRAVEL
I WATCHED IT CRASH AND BURN
BUT NONE OF THAT WAS EVER MY CONCERN

I LOST DIRECTION
YES I LOST MY WAY
NO SUCH THING AS SAT-NAV
WAY BACK IN THE DAY
BUT THANKS TO YOU NOW I'M BACK ON THE ROAD AGAIN

CHORUS:

NOW I FEEL
SOMETHING REAL
CALL IT HEALING
ONE THING FOR SURE
I DON'T WANNA GO BACK AGAIN

DRINKING YOURSELF SOBER WAS THE BEST THING THAT YOU'VE DONE
COS NOW YOU ARE A FATHER A BROTHER AND A SON
I GUESS FOR YOU YOUR LIFE HAS JUST BEGUN

CHORUS

NOW YOU'RE DRIVING WITH YOUR FAMILY LAUGHING HAVING FUN
SINGING OUT YOUR PRAISES WITH YOUR LITTLE ONES
DRIVING HOME INTO THE SETTING SUN

CHORUS:

NOW I FEEL
SOMETHING REAL
CALL IT HEALING
ONE THING FOR SURE
I DON'T WANNA GO BACK AGAIN
Track Name: RESCUE ME
RESCUE ME

STANDING HERE
ARE YOU NEAR ME?
HELP ME MAKE SENSE OF IT ALL
I SPEAK THE WORDS CAN YOU HEAR ME?
WON'T ANSWER THIS MY CALL?

OH WON'T YOU PLEASE RESCUE ME
OH WON'T YOU PLEASE RESCUE ME...FROM MYSELF!

THERE WAS A TIME I THOUGHT I KNEW YOU
BUT NOW I'M NOT SO SURE
YOU TELL ME I'M A HOPELESS SINNER HERE
WON'T YOU TAKE ME FROM THIS SHORE?

OH WON'T YOU PLEASE RESCUE ME
OH WON'T YOU PLEASE RESCUE ME...FROM MYSELF!

I FOUND A ROCK AND IT'S A SAFE PLACE
FROM THE SWELL OF HYPOCRITES
THERE'S WORSE THAN SHARKS ROUND HERE TOO FACE
THEY'LL CHEW YOU UP IN LITTLE BITS

SO WON'T YOU PLEASE RESCUE ME
OH WON'T YOU PLEASE RESCUE ME...FROM MYSELF!

AND IF IT'S TRUE IF YOU'RE THE REAL THING
I WOULD LAY DOWN AT YOUR THRONE
I WOULD GIVE UP MY POSSESSIONS
THIS SIMPLE SONG IS ALL I OWN

SO WON'T YOU PLEASE RESCUE ME
OH WON'T YOU PLEASE RESCUE ME...FROM MYSELF!
Track Name: ACROSS A WINTER SKY
ACROSS A WINTER SKY

LOOKING OUT ACROSS THE WINTER SKY
STARS ARE SHINING BRIGHT
ONE FOR YOU AND ONE FOR ME
SOMETHING TELLS ME THAT IT'S MEANT TO BE
CAN YOU FEEL IT TOO?
YOU WITH ME AND ME WITH YOU

NOW I'VE FOUND THE ROAD THAT I AM GOING
AND I WANT YOU HERE WITH ME
THIS IS HOW LIFE'S MEANT TO BE

I LOOK INTO THE STARLIGHT IN YOUR EYES
I CAN SEE IT CLEAR BABE YOU'RE THE ONE FOR ME
I LOVE TO HAVE YOU HERE RIGHT BY MY SIDE
WHEN I'M DRIVING... LET ME TAKE YOU HOME

NOW I'VE FOUND THE ROAD THAT I AM GOING
AND I WANT YOU HERE WITH ME
THIS IS HOW LIFE'S MEANT TO BE

NOW I'VE FOUND THE ROAD THAT I AM GOING
AND I WANT YOU HERE WITH ME
THIS IS HOW LOVE'S MEANT TO BE

LOOKING OUT ACROSS THE WINTER SKY
STARS ARE SHINING BRIGHT
ONE FOR YOU AND ONE FOR...... ME
Track Name: DEMONS (Heart Of Stone)
DEMONS

WOULD YOU BELIEVE ONCE A BROKEN MAN
NOW STANDING WITH THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS
SITS BY THE SEA DRAWING IN THE SAND
ITS PLAIN TO SEE THAT HE'S A HAPPY MAN
I'M A HAPPY MAN YES I AM

DEMONS FROM THE PAST
LIKE STONE WERE BUILT TO LAST
BUT TODAY THESE STONES HAVE BEEN OUTCAST
IN TO A HEALING OCEAN
WHERE ALL PAIN IS SURPASSED
I'VE FOUND PEACE AT LAST
PEACE AT LAST ...OH YEAH

I GUESS YOU MUST HAVE KNOWN I NEEDED TO BE SHOWN
SOMETHING I COULD OWN A TINY HEART OF STONE
WITH A HOLE IN THE MIDDLE...AND YOU SAY

LET IT GO I'LL HELP YOU THROUGH
THERE'S A HOLE IN MY HEART THAT'S BIG ENOUGH
TO PULL YOU THROUGH
AND LET IT FLOW, BE TRUE TO YOU
THERE'S A HOLE IN MY HEART THAT'S BIG ENOUGH
TO PULL YOU THROUGH

MY CHILDREN PLAY WITHOUT A NOTION
THEY'RE CASTING STONES INTO THE RISING OCEAN
SURELY THIS IS INNOCENCE IN MOTION
AND I OFFER MY DEVOTION, IT FILLS ME WITH EMOTION, EVERY TIME,

I WAS NOT ALONE WE WALKED AMID A MILLION STONES
SEARCHING FOR THE BEAUTIFUL ONES
AND THEN I CHANCED TO FIND A HEART OF STONE TO KEEP
SOMETHING THAT WOULD WAKE MY SOUL FROM SLEEP
IN MY CONSCIOUSNESS SO DEEP

I GUESS YOU MUST HAVE KNOWN I NEEDED TO BE SHOWN
SOMETHING I COULD OWN A TINY HEART OF STONE
WITH A HOLE IN THE MIDDLE...AND YOU SAY

LET IT GO I'LL HELP YOU THROUGH
THERE'S A HOLE IN MY HEART THAT'S BIG ENOUGH
TO PULL YOU THROUGH
AND LET IT FLOW, BE TRUE TO YOU
THERE'S A HOLE IN MY HEART THAT'S BIG ENOUGH
TO PULL YOU THROUGH

THIS IS WHAT I HAD TO DO
THIS IS ALL I HAD TO DO

LET ALL MY DEMONS GO....
Track Name: Bluebells In May #Live (Bonus Track)
#Live Acoustic take on 'Bluebells In May' Composed/Written by Dennis McCalmont

Bluebells In May
As we walk through the woods on a Summer's Day
Gathering bluebells in May
Like a Classical painting by Claude Monet
Called Gathering Bluebells In May
And the sunshine radiates through the trees
There is beauty here, there is stillness, a sense of ease

A chorus of birdsong they lead our way
Gathering bluebells in May
And all of our worries they fade away
Gathering bluebells in May
And as I rest 'neath a tree to watch you
I am aware, of your loveliness, and the sweet perfume
And Love that fills the air, Take me back there...

Life ever changing from day to day
We'll weather life's rainy days
But I'll always Love you now come what may
We'll treasure these Summer days

You and I are guided by a Loving Power
With an unseen hand that gathers us like the flowers
Always there with a Love and care
In our darkest hour, a Loving Power

And I'll always love you now come what may
We'll treasure these Summer days....
