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. Where we once were anchored just cannot be found. Enough to and fro, look out below 'coz I'm letting go.

I am a bridge, there's a river running underneath I am a ship on the waves in the estuary I am in the wings; the cast are up for the curtain call I am a cloud in sky; I can see it all CH: Oh, the rough and changing tides, All I ask is that you’ll get me to the other side I am a tree without roots growing in the shade I am a light at the back of the cavalcade I am in the depths and I am waiting for an outstretched hand I am a bird in the air looking for the land I am a door to a garden that’s in full bloom I am a key that will unlock the guarded room I am on the edge and I am jumping, it’s a long way down I am a rolling stone, two feet on the ground

So Long 05:05
Stop the traffic, close the shops, it’s time to remember that something is lost Lower the flag, line the street, tap your foot to the solemn beat. Bow your head, walk in line, let’s not pretend things are fine Dress in black, chime the bell, it’s time to stand and bid farewell. CHORUS: So long, so long until next time I’ll wave goodbye, until next time So long, farewell until next time Eyes to the sky, until next time Looking back on younger days, now I’m seeing things in different ways. Wasted moments, ups and downs, times that saved me from hitting the ground. Holding on to what’s left, I promise you I wont forget. My gratitude, sent up to you, remembered though you’re out of view. Bits of you, left in me, (and) taken with me through life’s journeys Step by step, I’m getting by from what we lost in the blink of an eye. Now I find, I’m taking hold, moving forward now I’m in control, Letting go of what was holding me down, things are getting easier without you around.

River 04:11
Take me down, To the water, Lead me there. To where the current flows the strongest and there’s stillness in the air. I will hold myself steady in the water, for to wash me of the debt I owe. Chorus: I give myself to the river. I am swallowed deep in the swell. I find release within the ripples and the waves. I am and cleansed here, I am well. Do not look for ways to try to reach me; This is where I’m meant to be, headed out towards the sea. It’s here I find myself calm beneath the water As the river leads me home. River deep, flowing strong, river wide. Will you lift me from these ashes and cover me inside. I will keep myself coming to the River, ‘Til the River runs me dry.

Winter Time (free) 04:14
Logs on fireplaces, children with rosy faces And the frost how it glistens in the morning sun, It’s begun…it’s winter time. Warm scarf and hat to match, a winter cold to catch, Making tracks in the fresh snow with you my dear, It’s here…It’s winter time. Though it’s cold out here holding hands in my pocket keeps me warm inside. Cuddled up under the covers you and I have got each other we’ll be warm tonight. So let’s make the most, and raise a toast…to winter time. Watching as the snow falls, Christmas lights and candles. Wrapping presents, hot chocolate on a cold, cold day. Hey…it’s winter time. Family gatherings gathered round the evergreen, Sharing gifts and watching Christmas movies all day long. Sing along…it’s Winter time Though it’s cold out here holding hands in my pocket keeps me warm inside. Cuddled up under the covers you and I have got each other we’ll be warm tonight. So let’s make the most, and raise a toast…to winter time. Throw an extra blanket on the bed my dear, we can save building snowmen for another year. It’s a cold day here we’ll stay in bed all day, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Though it’s cold outside you and I are more than fine we’re tucked up warm inside. We’re snuggled up under the covers we need nothing but each other we’ll be warm tonight. So let’s make the most, and raise a toast…to winter time.
