Track Name: Going Home (Live)
Drawn to the city like a moth to a flame
I was eager for success I was so hungry for fame
And the dizzy glare of neon it bedazzled, mesmerized
Like a carpet of jewels laid before my very eyes

Chorus
I’m going home, going home
Back to the place where your waiting for me
Going home, going home
‘cos love ain’t always where you want it to be

Whispered conversations held in dark and smoky rooms
The lure of false promises, the counsel of fools
And every new day brought another compromise
And the carpet of jewels began to fade before my eyes

Chorus Verse Instrumental Chorus

Missed opportunities and countless sleepless nights
Oh the spell began to fade from all those magic lights
Never made the connections as I moved from role to role
The taste is bitter sweet but leaves a hunger in the soul

Chorus, Backing chorus, Repeat 1st Verse
Track Name: I'm Okay (Live)
I’m okay yes I’m okay,
But I’m lonely,
So lonely without you

When you left this place,
You left such a space,
But you never left my heart
You just broke it in two

Instrumental:
I’m okay yes I’m alright,
Just feel a little lonely
I’m missing you tonight

Just feel a little lonely
I’m missing you tonight
Track Name: Keep A Light On For You (Live)
Thinking back, I can’t remember the way
Why or even when, But It really doesn’t matter now
The angry words, have calmed over the years
The hurt the tears, But It really doesn’t matter now

I watch the sun come up and the sun go down
I wonder if you see it too, I could be a romantic fool
But then I always was for you romantic fool
I keep a light on for you

Just in case you were wondering I never searched
for someone to take your place, But It really doesn’t matter now
They would have been a poor imitation
in any case, and It really doesn’t matter now

I watch the sun come up and the sun go down
I wonder if you see it too, I could be a romantic fool
But then I always was for you romantic fool

And still after all these years, I keep a light on for you
I think there’s nothing I’d like more
than to see you to walk through my door
see you walk through my door

I’ll keep a light on for you X 3

I watch the sun come up and the sun go down
I wonder if you see it too, I could be a romantic fool
But then I always was for you romantic fool

I’ll keep a light on for you repeat X 3
I’ll always keep a light on for you
Track Name: The Tale Of Marcy Borders (Live)
The beauty of the city, like nowhere else on earth
In a building that stood so high
She could feel the hand of god
Her life was unremarkable, Until that fateful day
Just trying to make a livin
But barely gettin by

Five years ago it happened, almost to the day
When the hand of fate lifted Marcy down
To guide her on her way
In a moment her life was flashing by, Could have ended like the rest
But it was written she would stay
To see another day

Chorus

There are good days, there are bad,
There are some we can’t forget
There are days that stay etched in the mind
But the tale of Marcy Borders was to have a happy end
Like a phoenix from the ashes she would rise

Through the chaos and confusion, she made her way towards the light
Knowing for indecision
She could pay the highest price
Her blue skies where lost beneath, dark heavy, clouds of grey
how things can change In the blink of an eye

Chorus

For a time she was lost, lost in her fears
But she took her darkest moments
Washed them with her tears
And she hung on for 2 long years, Wonderin if she would heal
now she can smile each day she’s alive

Chorus X 2
Track Name: Moments (Live)
Like a stone that skims the water
Like a wave that breaks on the sand
Like a word that stays unspoken
Like the touch of a lovers hand

Chorus
All these moments that surround us
Are the moments that move to fast
So let go of tomorrow
Lets just make the moment last

Like a heart filled with emotion
Like a tear that waits to fall
Like the silence that’s close to midnight
Like the light that’s before the dawn

Chorus

Verse Instrumental

Chorus

Like the colours of a rainbow
Like a grey sky that turns to blue
Like the first breath of a new life
Like a star that fades from view
Like a stone that skims the water
Like a wave that breaks on the sand
Like a word that stays unspoken
Like the touch………… of.. a.. lovers hand……
Track Name: Love's Arrow (Live)
The path of love isn’t always smooth
It can twist and turn and bend
Elusive as a ray of hope or a whisper on the wind
Some years ago just a hopeless case
As I made home through the park

Love’s arrow flew pierced right through
My disenchanted heart

Unaware and quite naïve
I took it in my stride,
Turned on my heels and carried on
But with you I did collide
And I loved you then as I love you still
Where you end is where I start

Chorus

Love’s arrow flew pierced right through
My disenchanted heart

And our eyes met as the pouring rain
Surrendered to the sun
With your old blue jeans and tired shirt
We were already said and done
And I loved you then as I love you still
Where you end is where I start

Chorus

And you asked me a question
But the words I did not hear
As the sound of love’s sweet symphony
Was ringing in my ears
And I loved you then as I love you still
Where you end is where I start
Track Name: Woman Like Me (Live)
I hear you baby
I can feel your pain
Sometimes I wonder
If we will ever be the same again

And after all the trouble
Everything that we've been through
It takes a woman like me
To love a man like you
love a man like you, love a man like you, love a man like you

I hear the stories
‘bout the things you do
But I don't care what they say
'Cos I'm the one that's going home with you

And after all the trouble
Everything that we've been through
It takes a woman like me
To love a man like you
Love a man like you, love a man like you, It takes a woman like me
To love a man like you, woman like me, man like you

You know I'm always waiting
Always here to take your call
To reach out and hold you
The only one that picks you up when you fall

And after all the trouble
Everything that we've been through
It takes a woman like me
To love a man like you
Love a man like you, love a man like you, it takes a woman like me
To love a man like you, woman like me, man like you,
Woman like me, man like you
It takes a woman like………………………me
Track Name: Forever And A Day (Live)
When the sun never rises in your sky
and the tides keep on turning,
but the tears still linger in your eyes
When it seems there’s nothing to ease away your pain
I will hold you, let me hold you, forever and a day

Remember when you laid with me
through my long dark nights
And your words softly spoken, told me everything’s alright
But now it seems that you have lost your way
Let me hold you, I will hold you, forever and a day

Summer turns to autumn
Winter turns to spring
Still the world keeps on spinning
In spite of everything
but when it seems there’s nothing to ease away your pain
Let me hold you, I will hold you, forever and a day

but when it seems there’s nothing that will ease away your pain
Let me hold you, I will hold you, forever and a day
Track Name: Don't Try (Live)
Don't care if it's wrong or right,
I've been driving this car for half of the night
No stopping I'm in full flight
And I've blazed a trail of jumped red lights

Chorus
Don't try, Don't try to stop me now
Don't try, Don't try to stop me now
I'm almost there, almost there yeah yeah
I'm almost there, almost there yeah yeah

I've been so long on the road
I'm heading home with nothing to show
Nanci Griffiths on the radio
And I've still got a hundred miles to go

Chorus

Full of excitement, don't need no pills
Ignore the signs that say "Tiredness Kills"
Cricklewood Broadway, Shoot-up Hill
The thought of the place gives me such a thrill
