Track Name: Dear Sir
Dear Sir
Lonely though you are
Don't be too discouraged
I have saved a place next to my heart
For you
With my blue dress on
My best foot forward
And bells on too
I'm waiting waiting
Waiting for you

People try to tell me I should
Find where I belong
But they are wrong
So wrong

Could I go
Go
Could I ever leave
Leave
The answer's no
No
Because I'm waiting waiting
Waiting for you

Dear Sir
Just look at the stars
There's a million you can see
And several million more you can't
But you
Just keep gazing
Be amazed
All of that glitter glue
Is waiting waiting
Waiting for you

People try to tell me I should
Try adventure on
But they are wrong
So wrong

And could I go
Go
Could I ever leave
Leave
The answer's no
No
Because I'm waiting waiting
Waiting for you

Maybe we will meet upon the hilltop
Weather fair
And you'll smile behind the grass
And put a flower in my hair
Thinking of the future
Always helps me to believe
That you are waiting waiting
Waiting for me

Could I go
Go
Could I ever leave
Leave
The answer's no
No
Because I'm waiting waiting
Waiting for you
Track Name: Believe Me
Please believe
That I will do my best wherever I go
But all I see now is
A hundred thousand things I don't know

Count up to ten
Close your eyes
Then open
I'm coming now ready or not

Whatever it takes
Wherever it leads
I'm not gonna break
Believe me
Whoever I am
Whoever I'll be
She won't back down
Believe me

Please believe
That I will never let the fire surround me
And when I'm down
I will keep the hope and strength around me

Count up to ten
Close your eyes
Then open
Ready or not here I come

Whatever it takes
Wherever it leads
I'm not gonna break
Believe me
Whoever I am
Whoever I'll be
She won't back down
Believe me

No matter what gets in the way
I'll fight for what I believe
And that is never gonna change
It's never gonna fade my hope away

Whatever it takes
Wherever it leads
I'm not gonna break
Believe me
Whoever I am
Whoever I'll be
She won't back down
Believe me
Track Name: As Far As The Stars
It's time to say goodbye
And you're scared I see it in your eyes
Adventures are fun
You're worrying about nothing
Your guitar's in the car
Umbrella by your side
Thought you were on your way
When I heard you say

What do you think is wrong with me
I've never been brave like you
And if I get lonely
What will I do

As far as I know
As far as the stars
This earthquake's gonna shake your heart
You're scared of what might happen then
I told you once but I'll tell you again
You don't need to worry 'bout that

I know that you're trying
To help me find my feet
I know you're watching over me
Maybe I'll be brave
And show you that I can
Maybe I should stay
The weather's looking grey

What do you think is wrong with me
I've always got a better excuse
But once I have gone
What will you do

(Oh I've danced with a million doubts)
As far as I know
As far as the stars
This earthquake's gonna shake your heart
(Couldn't hear the words you said)
Your scared of what might happen then
(You told me once just tell me again)
I told you once but I'll tell you again
(I don't need to worry 'bout that)
You don't need to worry 'bout that

Look at that shine
You and the stars
(I know that you're trying)
This little girl can't tell you apart
(To help me find my feet)
Did you think you'd lost your friend
(I know you're watching over me)
She told you once now she'll tell you again
(I don't need to worry 'bout that)
You don't need to worry 'bout that

Show you that I can
Wherever you are
I'll never be as far as the stars
Track Name: Seven Seas
Are you with me
I'm setting my sail
Something has stirred up the waves inside of me
Short of a crew
Can I count on you
Like a fair wind behind me
Behind me

We are the bravest of brave
Our solid ground gaze
Will be gone
By tomorrow
Certainty has it's place
But it's change that we chase
And the stars
We will follow
So anchors up up and away

We will be the last
To go down in the dark
We are young
But we know
What to hold in our hearts
Seven seas don't seem like many to me
I will sail them all
Won't you sail with me

Are you listening
Ear in a shell
Powerful spell
Can you hear distant drumming
Boys growing strong
Men before long
And they won't see us coming
But we're coming

We are the changers of thoughts
Revolving the doors
This dry land
Will not hold you
When the sea states his case
With his beckoning waves
Listen up
He has called you
So anchors up up and away

We will be the last
To go down in the dark
We are young
But we know
What to hold in our hearts
Seven seas don't seem like many to me
I will sail them all
Won't you sail with me

We will be the last
To go down in the dark
We are young
But we know
What to hold in our hearts
Seven seas don't seem like many to me
I can count them on my fingers easily
And I will sail them all
Won't you sail with me

Are you with me
Track Name: Astronaut
I go outside for light
If you were to open your hatch
You'd be lost from sight

I sleep quite sound at night
Gravity you left back home
Straps hold you tight

I've been up in a plane
Shot to fame
And when I touched the ground
I cried until it rained
I'm not as brave
As I thought
Astronaut

But you
What do you do for fun
Do you still comb your hair
Or don't little things like that
Matter way up there
How will you face the crowd
How will you share
The common air on earth again
It's hard enough to breathe in space

I keep my windows clean
I'll bet space dust
Behaves unexpectedly

Is it the best view you've ever seen
Or does time spent away
Change everything

I've been up in a plane
Shot to fame
And when I touched the ground
I cried until it rained
I'm not as brave
As I thought
Astronaut

But you
What do you do for fun
Do you still comb your hair
Or don't little things like that
Matter way up there
How will you face the crowd
How will you share
The common air on earth again
It's hard enough to breathe in space

I'm not as brave as you are
But then I haven't been that far
Not even halfway to the stars
And you live right there where they are
So maybe
Fear can't follow to that height
And maybe
It would be music to my eyes
Show me the mountains of the universe
And I would learn to breathe in space

But you
What do you do for fun
Do you still comb your hair
Or don't little things like that
Matter way up there
How will you face the crowd
How will you share
The common air on earth again
It's hard enough to breathe in space

It's hard enough to breathe in space
Track Name: Blue Oceans
When I was three feet tall
I played in the sand
Back then the whole wide world
Fit into my hands
It was smaller back then

The world was wild and wide it spread
Horizons gold horizons red
It fell out of my hands
The world began

And it grew
Into
The bluest of blues
Like the oceans I knew
And it lived
I did too
In the blue
And it grew

Under six feet tall
I don't grow any more
The same old footprints
Still turn up on the shore
And they will always remain

Like the scattered seed it spread
Horizons gold horizons red
When it fell out of my hands
The world began

And it grew
Into
The bluest of blues
Like the oceans I knew
And it lived
I did too
In the blue

And it grew
Into
The bluest of blues
Like the oceans I knew
And it lived
Became strong
Returning the light that was
Lost for so long
And it grew
(The world was wild and wide it spread)
I did too
(Horizons gold horizons red)
In the blue
(It fell out of my hands)
(The world began)
And we grew
Track Name: Such Sweet Sorrow
People come and people go
Such is life ephemeral
We put on our finest show
But we're only here for a moment

In the corners of our minds
Storing up our borrowed time
Tryna move that finish line
But we're only here for a moment

This is the part where we part
But it won't be for forever
It's just the start just the start
We'll begin again together
No it won't be for forever
Still it's such sweet sorrow

Massive ocean little boat
Now you see us now you don't
Just magicians heading home
We were only here for a moment
Like a cold man to a fire
Fanning embers through the sky
Tryna catch the fading light
'Cause we're only here for a moment

This is the part where we part
But it won't be for forever
It's just the start just the start
We'll begin again together
No it won't be for forever
Still it's such sweet sorrow

(It's just the start just the start)
Still it's such sweet sorrow
(We'll begin again together)
(No it won't be for forever)

People come and people go
Such is life ephemeral
We put on our finest show
But we're only here for a moment
And it's such sweet sorrow
Track Name: This Show
Get up from your bed
Time to go sleepyhead
They say that it's the best thing since sliced bread
And I don't wanna miss it

There's magic to be found
Such things often come around
But it will be the first to hit this town
And I don't wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this show

Smiling faces
I don't wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this no
Take your places
Get up let's go
You're not gonna wanna miss this show

Such a sight to see
Coloured posters line the streets
Children under ten can dream for free
And I don't wanna miss it

Throw the past away
Grab your camera keep today
Tell them not to start we're on our way
And I don't wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this show

Smiling faces
I don't wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this no
Take your places
I don't wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this show
Smiling faces
I don't wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this no
Take your places
Get up let's go
You're not gonna wanna miss this show

Smiling faces
I don't wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this no
(I don't wanna miss this no)
Take your places
I dont wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this show
Smiling faces
I don't wanna miss it
I don't wanna miss this no
(I don't wanna miss this no)
Take your places
Get up let's go
You're not gonna wanna miss this show
Track Name: Gentle Giants
Shadow lies
Over ten wings wide
But it cannot hide me

Forest fades
But I'm not afraid
So I whisper lightly

You're that shy kind of beautiful
And that's my kind of wonderful
I think I understand you now
Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground

But they never make a sound
They just go down
But they never make a sound
Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground

Tall as trees
With their fallen leaves
You are stronger than them

Heart of gold
That you never show
Like you're hiding something

You're that shy kind of beautiful
And that's my kind of wonderful
I think I understand you now
Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground

But they never make a sound
They just go down
But they never make a sound
Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground

I think I understand you now
Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground
I think I understand you now
Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground

But they never make a sound
They just go down
But they never make a sound
Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground
