Track Name: Canon
As the consequences all unravel
As the point of difference fades away
Where was once the constant urge to travel
Now exists the strong desire to stay
And I don't want nothing more than what I can give to you
No I don't want nothing more than what I can give to you
That's everything

As the days endure beyond their borders
As the light plays tricks upon my eyes
Satisfaction's not such a tall order
As when it first appeared in it's disguise
And I don't want nothing more than what I can give to you
No I don't want nothing more than what I can give to you
That's everything
Track Name: Don't Be A Stranger
I know that we won't always agree and that's alright
'Cause I know that we can't always see eye to eye
But I know that the strength between us must be recognised
And I know that it makes no sense for us to hide
Don't be a stranger, no, no, no
Don't be stranger
'Cause they're ain't nobody knows me better
Than I know myself but you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

And I know that you disagree with some of my choices
And I know that I can't make head nor tail of yours
But I know that all our frustrations are borne out of love
And I know that we will never be out of love
Don't be a stranger, no, no, no
Don't be stranger
'Cause they're ain't nobody knows me better
Than I know myself but you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I see your face in the mirror everyday
I hear the ghost of your voice in the words I say
I play the same games with my children we used to play
But what once pulled us together now just pushes us away

I know that you've got a point of view you call insight
And I know that you test it regularly night after night
But I know that a contrary opinion hurts your pride
'cause I know that you think the truth is something you decide
Don't be a stranger, no, no, no
Don't be stranger
'Cause they're ain't nobody knows me better
Than I know myself but you
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: The Last Living Soul On Earth
Another night of perfect sleep but ambition’s dreams still earn their keep
And every blessing’s just another curse
When you’re the last living soul on earth
The last living soul

Dawn breaks hope across the sky as another day arrives in style
Just the same old song with another verse
When you’re the last living soul on earth
The last living soul

There’s nothing like good company; I keep my own but nothing’s free
There’s more hunger and more than thirst
When you’re the last living soul on earth
The last living soul
Track Name: Two Steps
Two steps forward
Three steps back and here we are
Right back where we started
A friendship worth both our time shouldn't be this hard
And I shouldn't have to feel downhearted

The politics of our affections break all the rules
We rig the elections so neither of us has to choose
Which side we're on
Who's right?
Who's wrong?

Two steps forward
Three steps back and here we are
Right back where we started
A friendship worth both our time shouldn't be this hard
And I shouldn't have to feel downhearted

The customary accusations have lost all their bite
But never let lack of potential ruin your night
Who's side you on?
Who's right?
Who's wrong?

Two steps forward
Three steps back and here we are
Right back where we started
A friendship worth both our time shouldn't be this hard
And I shouldn't have to feel downhearted
Track Name: Magic
I cannot be certain of what it was I saw;
A conjuror’s illusion, or was it something more?
Something not so easily explained -
They say eliminate the impossible and then what remains
Must be the truth.

Do you believe in magic?
Could you believe in magic?

To see it with your own eyes is more than I can say
Parlor tricks can surprise but magic will amaze
It’s something not so easily explained -
They say eliminate the impossible and then what remains
Must be the truth.

Do you believe in magic?
Could you believe in magic?

Mine eyes have borne witness to a host of miracles,
First hand evidence, proven empiricals
If miracles are magic then magic exists
Just like the baby in your arms and the smile on its lips.
Track Name: Helping Hand
Seems to me that you could use a helping hand
Seems to me that you could use a helping hand
Too proud to beg when the going gets tough
Too much to prove when you ain't got enough
But two heads are better than one when it comes to solving problems
Yeah, seems to me that you could use a helping hand

Seems to me that you could use some good advice
Seems to me that you could use some good advice
Too busy talking when you should be listening
Too busy arguing the same old positions
Too many excuses and not enough explanations
Yeah, seems to me that you could use some good advice

Could it be that the rest of the world are wrong and you are right?
Or could it possibly be that you need to open up your mind?
Seems to me that's something you should give some thought.

Seems to me that you could use a helping hand
Seems to me that you could use a helping hand
Too many issues with a broken system
Too tired to take the time it takes to fix them
But tomorrow keeps coming 'round
Right up til the day it doesn't
Yeah, seems to me that you could use a helping hand
Track Name: The Thought of You
How could I replace the thought of you?
All this time
So many years without you
To endure, to escape
To let the thought of you slip away
Where's the will, where's the way?
What more could I possibly say?
When all my words fail to make that thought real again
How could I replace the thought of you?

Endless time
A crueler form of kindness
At the outskirts of faith
I fear the thought of you slips away
Where's the will?
Should I pray?
What more could I possibly say?
When all my words fail to make that thought real again
How could I replace the thought of you?
Track Name: Over The Oceans
By the end of our first conversation
We had found common ground
Recognised the strength of the foundation
And built a friendship of shared intentions
That slowly get pulled apart and put back together again
Afloat upon the tides of life
We're driftwood spiraling over the ocean

Let's pretend just for the sake of argument
That we had never come together
Would our choices have been that much different?
The decisions of our existence
That slowly get pulled apart and put back together again
Afloat upon the rising tide
We're driftwood spiraling over the ocean

It's the truth that slowly gets pulled apart and put back together again
Afloat upon the rising tide
We're driftwood spiraling over the oceans
