Track Name: Juvenile Love Story
Remember when we had all the answers
And ambitions bravery
Innocent, we recognised the chances as opportunities
Juvenile love story

Challenging the strongest arguments with naked confidence
Managing the contests and tournaments that faith alone presents
Juvenile love story

Remember when we listened to the others and let the world invade
Broken then, listen you young lovers: the world is yours to make
Juvenile love story
Track Name: Best Intentions
Down on the street parade they’re praying for rain
A one in a million last ditch invitation for you to save ‘em and show your face
Thoughts of yesterday for tomorrow
Some they made up the rest they borrowed
But good intentions go a long, long way
We had the best intentions but sometimes life gets in the way…

Far from the madding crowd can you still hear them?
Do words on a wing reach into your reverie; the same thought repeating
“Will they still need me?”
Thoughts of yesterday for tomorrow
Some they made up the rest they borrowed
But good intentions go a long, long way
We had the best intentions but sometimes life gets in the way…
Track Name: The Scheme of Things
All that you'll ever need
And all that you'll ever know
All that the world agrees
And all that you're scared to show
Ain't nothing in the scheme of things

All that you'll ever lose
And all that you'll ever gain
All of the paths you choose
And all the mistakes you make
Ain't nothing in the scheme of things

All that you leave behind
And all of the reasons why
All of the ties that bind
The hurricane's hungry eye
Ain't nothing in the scheme of things
Track Name: Swimming Through the Ashes
Cool river flowing endlessly to the ocean
Warm breeze blowing sets the ripples in motion
Thin silver shivers of light dancing across the surface of the water
Like flames trapped beneath the skin
Flickering butterfly kisses on the water
Take me down, down to the river
Let the years wash away
Let my youth never fade
And let it roll on forever
Swimming through the ashes of all those bridges we have burned

Fool for believing in the moments we’d stolen
World keep on turning
River keep rolling
Thin silver shivers of light dancing across the surface of the water
Like flames trapped beneath the skin
Flickering butterfly kisses on the water
Take me down, down to the river
Let the years wash away
Let my youth never fade
And let it roll on forever
Swimming through the ashes of all those bridges we have burned
Track Name: The Passionate Shepherd to His Love
By Christopher Marlowe and Sir Walter Raleigh (last verse)

Live with me, and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That hills and valleys, dales and fields,
And all the craggy mountains yields.

There will we sit upon the rocks,
And see the shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow rivers, by whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

There will I make thee a bed of roses,
With a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroider’d all with leaves of myrtle.

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs;
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Then live with me and be my love.

LOVE’S ANSWER

If that the world and love were young,
And truth in every shepherd’s tongue,
These pretty pleasures might me move,
To live with thee and be thy love.
Track Name: Lose Sight of Love
Written words that shape their meanings for an age
Instructions for the mind to wander beyond the page
Inheriting the old opinions we live to prove
That living with our own decisions we sometimes lose sight of love

Recognition in a moment, the sentences fit
Neatly into understanding bit by bit
Passing out of innocence and into life
We recognise ourselves in others within the sight of love

Instances that earn addictions and prove the world
Is everything we once suspected but sometimes lose sight of love

Is it any wonder there’s a lack of faith in politics and economics when nothings safe;
The promises that force elections always prove that power in an individual is forced to lose sight of love.
