Track Name: Nature's Gift
Natures Gift

Some of this real, some of this is just,
Made up by us,
Perhaps It's just a dream, real though it seems,
When the faith is abused, It's far from the truth,

Some of this is false, but most of It's true,
There's silver in the stars and diamonds in the moon,
Treasure in the sea, and everything is free,
Except for you and me

Chorus

Made of flesh and blood
Son of fire, water and love
Never could resist, final voice
Nature's gift

Some of this is wrong, but most of it is right,
Whenever in the dark, there is always light
And everyone's the same, but everything can change,
It's all been arranged
Track Name: Brings a Tear
Brings a Tear

We may often lose ourselves in our friends and our lovers
And we never understand why somehow we hurt each other
Some things tend to fade as we surely get older
Brings a tear to your eye
When you look over your shoulder and at the past
That didn't last

So the spinning wheel spins and the tables turn forever
And the changes within leave their scars to remember
Somewhere in the distance
That secret voice is calling
Brings a tear to your eye
When you reminisce and think about the past
That didn't last

Chorus

At least you made it through
Whatever is the truth
It's inside of you

And forever we shall live within the walls we've created
For we know not how to give
But we know now where to find it
And the memories remain unstained and un-tortured
Brings a tear to your eye
When you recall a faded vision of the past
That didn't last
The past.......it never lasts (repeat to fade)
Track Name: Third People
Third People

What can I say, what can I do
I'm thinking about her,she's thinking about you
You're thinking of him as more than a friend
Strange world, third people

Well rehearsed smile, got a pose out of vogue
Hidden intentions, sometimes so misunderstood
No introduction, 'cos we already know
Strange world, third people

What can I say, what can I do
I'm still thinking about her, she's still thinking about you
You're still thinking of him as more than a friend
Strange world, third people
Track Name: Foolish Romancer
Foolish Romancer

You're a foolish romancer
You're hopeful and brave
Your private adventures
Will lead to your graves
It's all an illusion
It's all a secret game

Whatever your reasons
you spend them in style
You're young and delightful
Wishful and wild
There's only one thing though
You're running out of time
Out of time

Internal congestion oh what a mess
The smiles and the laughter
Should fool all the rest
You're a foolish romancer
We know you're doing your best

The signs had told you
That she was the one
Not many like her , Under the sun
It would have been forever
But now she's on the run
She's on the run (....to fade)
Track Name: Always be Free
Always be Free

When I was just a seedling
You nurtured me to grow
And now that I am stronger
And growing on my own
You deny me, what I'm trying to be

I've told you all the reasons
I've given you all the signs
But still you don't believe me, still you think I'm blind
You don't know what it means to me

Chorus

For you to believe,
For you to believe in me
Do you believe, do you believe in me

As I turn the pages
And journey through time
The memory of ages
And days gone by
Still remain so clear in my mind

One day, I'll have children and they will talk to me
And I will believe them
I will help them see that their souls will always be free
Always be free, always be free
Track Name: One World
One World

I know one day I will make the right decision and
Find my way through this labyrinth of life
But I must be strong and suffer all kinds of ignorance
And when I'm wrong I must try to make it
Make it right

Every night I think of the consequences
And try to see ecery side, every view
I realise I have faith in deliverance
I can't deny the neverending truth

Chorus


One world, one heart, one faith is just
An impossible dream
Somehow, somewhere, someway we must
Find the fine line in between

So go your way and I'll meet you at the end
In a diffrent life in a diffrent place
In the given time what makes all the diffrence
Is to be kind and full of grace
Track Name: Sweet Surrender
Sweet Surrender

If you wanna catch me, you gotta fly
And if you need a reason, I'll give you mine
Looking for something, I've got the time

Satisfaction is never guaranteed
So bring along everything you think you might need
'Cos when you get through dear
You're on your own, so cold

Sweet surrender is the name of the game
Always remember, we're not one and the same
The main objective is to ease the pain

Few things matter, few things are real
The true confusion, a result of the things we feel
And all good people believe in love
They can't get enough
Sweet surrender, sweet.......
Track Name: A Little Prayer
A Little Prayer

This is a song for those, who have
Moved on in life.
I still feel you
I know you live in my dreams, a little out of sight
so I can be near you, day and night

I think I've been to your world, just before this life
But I don't remember
I know you'll visit me soon
To tell me what it's like
And how we live forever
And everything, everything's allright
Track Name: Little Bird
Little Bird

Here I am, in the middle of the road
So unsure of which direction I must go
It's a shame, but everywhere I turn
A candle burns

And all my questions, they never find the truth
And every answer seems to complicate my youth
Where are the dreams, that occupy my mind
They're so hard to find

Chorus

Little bird, take me on your wings and fly away
Show me all those things and let me stay
And forever I will search for a way

Forever trying to relate to everything
The history and the lessons it will bring
It's just a game, that I can never win
I can only begin

Chorus
Track Name: Sleep B 4 I die
Sleep B 4 I die

In my dreams I can fly
I spread my wings and I touch the sky
It's only make believe
But sometimes it makes me cry
That's why I hope I fall asleep before I die

In my dreams I can run
I often run around the sun
Twice around then once again
Don't ask me how or why
Thats why I hope I fall asleep before I die

Chorus

Rest your head and close your weary eyes
Cos' your fantasy is waiting
its anticipating
In the silen hours of the night
It seems so right, it seems so right, it seems so right

In my dreams in my mind
All I need I can find
The world is at my fingertips
And in it I confide
So I hope I fall asleep before I die
Track Name: Third People Bootleg
Third People

What can I say, what can I do
I'm thinking about her,she's thinking about you
You're thinking of him as more than a friend
Strange world, third people

Well rehearsed smile, got a pose out of vogue
Hidden intentions, sometimes so misunderstood
No introduction, 'cos we already know
Strange world, third people

What can I say, what can I do
I'm still thinking about her, she's still thinking about you
You're still thinking of him as more than a friend
Strange world, third people
Track Name: Little Bird Bootleg
