Track Name: Now
Into sunset
Took the only road
Left all behind
And we drove
One moment
Sum of all we'd known
Slipped out of time

What now for us?

And we are strong in anger
And we block roads
And we lose heart in face of power
We fear we can't control
If there's a mountain we climb it
An ocean we cross
And when we lose someone we go on
Though we feel the loss
And we are born for living
We're born to die
And with our arms around each other
Then we all survive

It's not too late for us
Track Name: Not Giving Up
From the start I had a dream
That your world was not as distant as it seemed
As my life began again
Was recreating, waiting for the moment when

Mind set on the climb
I’d pay this price a thousand times

I’m not giving up on you

From the start I had no choice
My future laid out in the pattern of your voice

Not lost, not yet found
As I run my feet barely touch ground

I’m not giving up on you

I tell you you’re wrong about the past
Not all the bright things fade so fast
I see that glow ahead of me

I’m not giving up on you
Track Name: Confidential
I'll tell you how it started
The kind of night that whispers low
We drove the old road
Above the city in the hills
With secrets dying to be told

And on the edge we waited breathless
A million lights spread out below
And with her head upon my shoulder
Said she'd never let me go

Now my heartbeat gives me away
See my footsteps and I'm betrayed
Watch the searchlight freeze me in place
Now there's nothing more to say

In her words I am the captain
But well does she know
My allegiances diverted
Wherever she commands I'd go

Now my heartbeat gives me away
See my footsteps and I'm betrayed
Watch the searchlight freeze me in place
It's all in the case
Now there's nothing more to say
Have you nothing more to say?
Track Name: Shout
A shout from a darkened hallway
Signals your discovery
And brings the world rushing to your door
So this is how he lived
And this is how he died
Too bad you couldn't leave them wanting more

Life lies where it fell
And yet continues all around
Where we go now who can tell?
Nothing stops us spinning round

So little time has passed
But now no-one remembers you
You're just a face on the evening news
And they're carving up your name
And they're eyeing up what's not theirs
But they'll take it all the same
Nobody cares

Life lies where it fell
And yet continues all around
Where we go now who can tell?
Nothing stops us spinning round
Track Name: Falling To Earth
I don’t want to fall to earth
All you gather there weighs heavy
I don’t want to fall to earth
Glass and concrete hold you in place

Give me the free air
I can see for years
Give me the free air
I can see for years

I don’t want to fall to earth
Forget your gravity and join me here
