Track Name: Life Lessons
Listen closely little one, here’s some things I wished I’d known when I was young.
Settle in now, pull up a pew as I impart my life lessons to you.
I funny thing, that is, the human race; you might discover that it’s hard to find your place.
But it’s ok to fall and you should dare to make mistakes for you’ll learn and grow and time will heal the heartache.

Hold, hold your head high; reach for the sky;
Don’t sweat the small stuff, you’ll always get by.
Give love and you’ll be loved, go follow your dreams love and you’ll be ok.
There’s a few more things I wanted to say…

You should eat new food; stand up for truth;
Work hard at what you love and see it through.
I hope you dare to be different, know yourself and be proud;
Don’t care too much what people think and live out loud.
Keep asking questions; do things that scare you.
Time is precious, how you’ll invest it and who you give it to.
Keep your heart young; sing everyday;
go see the world, travel somewhere faraway

Bridge:
Live life abundantly,
Love unapologetically,
And don’t be afraid to get your heart broken.
Track Name: I'm Letting Go
Have I come too far to turn around,
to leave this place I know without a sound?
Are we past the point of no return?
Have we burned every bridge there is to burn?

I'm letting go. I'm letting go.
This ship's run aground, there's no turning round,
I'm letting go.

Every day gets harder to see,
for the distance separating you and me.
You go your way, I'll go my way.
These wounds will never heal if we stay, so...

I'm letting go. I'm letting go.
This ship's run aground, there's no turning round.
I'm letting go.

I'm letting go. I'm letting go.
This ship's run aground, there's no turning round,
Where we once were anchored just cannot be found.
Enough to and fro, look out below 'coz I'm letting go.
Track Name: Retrospect
Inside a drawer in a room where I seldom go,
I found photograph hidden from view.
The corners were folded, the colours were faded,
But there in the middle was you

Framed in the blue sky, contentment in your eyes,
The camera captured your innocent charm.
You’d let your guard down, you were laughing out loud
As your hand held on loose to my arm.

Chorus:
We did have something great
Somehow we lost our way
I couldn’t see before
But it was worth fighting for.

As I recall, if my memory serves me well
This was the calm which preceded the storm.
We did lose sight of the thing that once held us close
That’s when we started to fall

Bridge:
I did not expect that these things seen in retrospect
Would uncover regret that I’d chose to forget
And it’s now that I see what I’ve missed without ‘you & me’
Track Name: Out Of Nowhere
Out of nowhere, like a bolt out of the blue
You said 'it's been a long-time coming'
I see it differently from you.
You should have said something,
told me what was wrong;
gave me the chance to put it right
gave me the chance to prove you wrong

I didn't see this coming
There wasn't any warning
Help me understand where you're coming from and how we've gotten here.

Can we talk this over, is there room to make ammends?
Are you saying that it's over, are you saying it's the end?
I don't know what to say this has knocked me to the ground
and it has broken me to pieces, now everything is upside down.

I didn't see this coming
There wasn't any warning
Help me understand where you're coming from and how we've gotten here
I wish that I had seen this coming but I was blind to all the warnings.
How do I pick me up fix me whole again and continue on my own.
Track Name: YOU
I will be your brolly on a rainy day
I will be your wellies so that in the puddles you can play
I will catch the spiders climbing up the wall
I will be your cushion if you ever lose your step and fall

Chorus:
You, you, you are the one that I’m in love with
You, you, you are the one I’m growing old with
You, you, you are the one that I’m in love with
And it’s you I’m going home with

I will be your torch if you can’t find the light,
I will go investigate if you hear something in the night
I will fetch a treat if you need something sweet
I will be your ladder if the highest shelf you cannot reach

You are like the sunshine on a cloudy day
You are who I miss the most if ever I am far away
You are like the Sandy to my Danny Z.
We go together like ‘rama lama lama ke ding a de ding a dong’

Bridge:
If you’re ever feeling low and need a kind whisper in your ear,
Then I am here to say…to…you…
Track Name: All At Once
All at once and so completely
I fell in love with you.
You should know that you complete me,
don't ever let me go

I don't say often enough how I love you so.
You've always been my happy ending,
I'll never let you go

When our hair is old and grey
I hope our lives will show
that you and me were made to be
our love did only grow
and you never let me go.
