Track Name: Fair New Day
Fair New Day ©PetePascoe 2013

AS THE MAN STOOD AMONGST HIS PEERS
HE SAID : THINK OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING AND DOWN
THEY CANT RISE ABOVE THEIR FEARS
YEH, THERE’S MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GO AROUND

ALL THE INJUSTICES THAT ARE
LYING, INGRAINED IN THE HEART
A CLEAN SLATE: WELL THAT DAY SEEMS SO FAR
AWAY, BUT WE ALL NEED TO MAKE A START

AND OH WHAT PART CAN I PLAY? TO HELP BEGIN A FAIR NEW DAY

ALL THE PAIN THAT WE'VE BEEN THROUGH
AND ALL THAT IS YET TO BE
LOOK TO THE JOY THAT SINGS SO TRUE
IT TAKES YEARS FOR US TO SEE

HOW WE WERE BORN TO SHAPE THE FUTURE
IT'S NOT OUR ROLE JUST TO WAIT AND SEE
SEEK YOUR PATH TO FIND WHAT’LL SUIT YER
TO MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE TO BE AND ASK:

OH WHAT PART CAN I PLAY? TO HELP BEGIN A FAIR NEW DAY
ASK ANYONE WHO'S TRULY FOUGHT A WAR
TO REFLECT AND SEE IF ANYTHING’S BEEN GAINED
HE’LL SAY NO - AND WE SHOULD FIGHT NO MORE
ALL WE'VE CREATED IS MORE PAIN

IF WE PUT ALL THE LOVE WE CAN FIND
IN OUT HEARTS AND EVERY CORNER OF OUR LIVES
AND LET IT POUR INTO OUR MINDS
HOW COULD WE SWIM AGAINST THAT TIDE?

OH WHAT PART SHALL I PLAY? TO HELP BEGIN A FAIR NEW DAY

WE STARTED OUT A LONG TIME AGO
YET WE START OUT AGAIN EACH DAY
ALL WE'VE DREAMED OF, LONGED FOR AND FOLLOWED
CLOTHES OUR SOUL, WEIGHS US DOWN OR SETS US FREE

NONE OF THIS IS NEWS TO YOU OR ME
I WON'T KNOCK ON YOU DOOR AND TROUBLE YOU WITH MORE
I’LL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS AND MAYBE, WE’LL SEE
WE COULD CHANGE TO GOOD WHAT IS TO BE

OH WHAT PART SHALL I PLAY? TO HELP BEGIN A FAIR NEW DAY.
Track Name: Lost or Won
LOST OR WON (ALL THOSE YEARS) P. PASCOE JUNE 2013

WHEN THE GAME’S BEEN LOST OR WON
DOES IT MATTER WHO’S LEFT WITH A SMOKING GUN?
AND WHEN ALL’S BEEN SAID AND DONE
IS A BATTLE EVER FULLY LOST OR WON?

ALL THAT’S SACRIFICED FOR THE CAUSE
WILL THEY EVER JUSTIFY THESE WARS?
AND OF THE SURVIVORS: HOW WILL THEY
DEAL WITH MEMORIES FROM THOSE DAYS?

INST

HOW DO WE EXPLAIN TO OUR CHILDREN
THE WORLD CAN BE THIS WAY - HOW TO HELP THEM
HAVE AN OPTIMISTIC VIEW OF THE FUTURE?
THE SEEDS OF HOPE WE MUST NURTURE

WHEN THE GAMES BEEN LOST OR WON
DOES IT REALLY MATTER WHO BEGAN
THIS TALE OF WOE AND ALL THE SUFFERING?
WHAT’S BEEN GAINED IF IT ALL COMES TO NOTHING

AHH THE SUFFERING WHAT’S BEEN GAINED
IF WE DONT LEARN FROM ALL THOSE YEARS.
Track Name: Don't Miss The Bus
DONT MISS THE BUS ©P. PASCOE 2013

LOVE LIES IN WAITING TO QUELL YOUR THIRST
IT CAN GROW LIKE A FLOWER OR LIKE A BUBBLE, MAY BURST
CAN BE GONE IN AN INSTANT AND WOUND YOU FOR LIFE
HEALS LIKE MAGIC IT CUTS LIKE A KNIFE

CREEPS UP SO SLOWLY, YOU HARDLY KNOW IT'S THERE
SENDS YOU TO HEAVEN DROPS YOU INTO DESPAIR
THEY SAY TRUE LOVE WAITS ONLY FOR A CHOSEN FEW
I SAY IT DEPENDS WHAT YOU LOOK FOR AND IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU DO

PART OF THE WONDER IS PART OF THE CURSE
COS IT'LL GIVE TO YOUR SOUL AND STEAL FROM YOUR PURSE
AND IF LOVE IS YOUR RICHES WITH THAT I’D AGREE
AND IF IT’S YOUR MASTER WE’RE ALL LIVING FREE

IT'LL RUN LIKE A CHILD DEMAND TO BE CAUGHT
IT'S STILL RUNNING WILD NEVER CAN BE BOUGHT
IT'LL REAPPEAR IN THE SHADOWS YOU CAST YOURSELF TO
IT'S WAITING FOR ME AND IT'S WAITING FOR YOU

OH LONELY ME OH LONELY YOU IT’S WAITING FOR YOU

YOU CAN'T BEGIN TO IMAGINE THE FEELING INSIDE
WHEN LOVE STARTS TO BLOSSOM INSTEAD OF CROUCHING TO HIDE
YOUR WORLD EXPLODES, TURNS YOU ON YOUR HEAD
NO ONE CAN EXPLAIN WHY WE WAIT TIL WE’RE DEAD

TO EMBRACE THIS SLOW BURNING TRUTH
FOR IT'S FOOD FOR THE TABLE AND WOOD FOR YOUR ROOF
LOVE IS OUR TEACHER, IT’LL SPLIT YOU OPEN WIDE
IF YOUR HEART IS BROKEN, THEN YOU SEE INSIDE

OH LONELY ME OH LONELY YOU YOU SEE INSIDE

LOVE IS A BEACON THAT WILL NEVER CEASE
BUT THERE'S A FREAK IN THE KITCHEN HE’LL COST US OUR PEACE
IF WE DONT FLUSH HIM OUT WE’LL ALL FALL FROM OUR TREES
AINT THAT WHERE IT ALL STARTED NOW WE’RE DOWN ON OUR KNEES

IT WAITS IN THE QUIET PAUSE BETWEEN BREATHS
MAYBE THAT’S ALL WE’VE GOT BETWEEN OUR BIRTH AND OUR DEATH
IT TAPS AT THE WINDOWS AND SPEAKS IN OUR DREAMS
ITS HEARD IN OUR LAUGHTER , OUR WHISPERS AND SCREAMS

OH LONELY ME OH LONELY YOU, OUR WHISPERS AND SCREAMS.


NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU'VE GOT OR HOW MUCH YOU MAY LACK
THERE'S ALWAYS WAY AND THERE’S STILL TIME TO TURN BACK
FOR NO MATTER HOW FAR OFF THE PATH WE MAY ROAM
THEY SAY LOVE WAITS IN SILENCE TO LEAD US ALL HOME

OH LUCKY ME OH LUCKY US JUST DONT MISS THE BUS

LEADS US HOME WHEREVER WE ROAM
YOU AND ME NO NEED TO FUSS
JUST DONT MISS THE BUS
Track Name: Pot Of Gold
POT OF GOLD ©P.PASCOE 2013

LAY YOUR BURDEN DOWN FOR A WHILE
PICK UP YOUR SPIRIT, PUT ON A SMILE
NOW THE DAY’S NEARLY DONE
THERE’S HOPE YET IN THE SINKING SUN
FOR THERE’S MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GO AROUND
AND IT'S MAGIC STUFF THAT WE'VE FOUND
WITH A SMILE OF DISCOVERY
REST A WHILE, SET YOURSELF FREE

FIGURE OUT WHAT CAN'T BE FIXED, SET IT FREE
THERE’S NO SECOND PRIZE FOR BEING LOST IN MISERY
FOLLOW THE LIGHT TO YOUR POT OF GOLD
LISTEN CLOSE - AIN'T THAT WHAT YOU HOLD?
CAST YOUR STONES WITH YOUR BREAD
COS IN OUR BONES THERE’S SOMETHING WE ALL DREAD
BUT WE DONT SPEAK ABOUT SHADOWS JUST BENEATH THE LOVE
YEH, DON'T WE JUST JUMP AND SHOUT WHEN IT COMES TO PUSH AND SHOVE

THERE’S A BOAT JUST OFF SHORE
WAIT A BIT, IT'LL TAKE PLENTY MORE
HEAR THE DRUMS AS WE PART
HOLD ON LOVE, THATS THE BEATING OF MY HEART
AND WE’LL SAIL AWAY TO SOMETHING NEW
THAT'S KNOWN TO ALL, YET COUNTED ON BY FEW
AND MAYBE , WELL START AGAIN
A BRAND NEW DAY - I'LL SEE YOU THEN
Track Name: As Far As I Can Tell
AS FAR AS I CAN TELL ©P. PASCOE 2013

DARLING I CAN’T WAIT DON'T YOU HESITATE
TO TAP ON MY WINDOW IN THE EARLY MORNING
DARLING I CAN’T WAIT

NORMALLY I'M OK BUT NORMALLY’S GONE AWAY
NOW THE WIND BLOWS AN EARLY WARNING
SURE THAT I'M OK

AS FAR AS I CAN TELL THE WORLD’S GOT BRIGHTER COLOURS
AS FAR AS I CAN TELL

LOVELIER THAN I CAN SAY SAD MEMORIES WIPED AWAY
THERE’S JUST SWEET SMELLING FLOWERS ON A SUNNY MORNING
YOU’RE LOVELIER THAN I CAN SAY

SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO LEAVE THEN I DO BELIEVE
THE SPELL WOULD BE BROKEN TIL A NEW DAY’S DAWNING
SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO LEAVE

BANISH THE THOUGHT BACK TO WHERE IT CAME FROM
THE FUTURE’S LOOKING ROSY AS FAR AS I CAN TELL

AS FAR AS I CAN TELL.
Track Name: Time Won't Wait
TIME WON’T WAIT ©PETE PASCOE 2012

BROKEN HEART BROKEN WHEEL
TIME WON'T WAIT IT SURE CAN HEAL
LONELY MAN LONELY LIFE
IT'S ALL GONE TO PLAN IN SPITE OF THE STRIFE

IF TIME CAN'T HEAL YOU ON THE PATH YOU’RE TRAVELLING
YOU BETTER CHANGE TACK, IT'S TIME TO KNOW
IF YOU DIDN'T FEEL YOUR PLANS UNRAVELLING
NOW WHEN YOU LOOK BACK IT’S SO LONG AGO
AND ONE THING MORE, FOLKS IT'S FOR SURE TIME WON'T WAIT

YOUNGER YEARS THEY WON'T STAY
UNLIKE TEARS YOU CAN'T WASH AWAY
THE HERE AND NOW SURE YOU CAN,
THO ITS LONG PAST THE HOUR FOR US TO MAKE A STAND

IF YOU DON'T REACH THE STARS YOUR BLEEDING FOR
THERE’S ONLY ONE PLACE TO FALL - IT'S NOT BAD AT ALL
IF WE LET IT TEACH THE GIFTS WE’RE NEEDING NOW
WHEN YOU HOLD OUT YOUR HAND , TRY TO STAND
WALK THROUGH THE DOOR, ONE THINGS FOR SURE

EVERYONE FEELS THE PULL ANYONE CAN ACT THE FOOL
BUT TIME WON'T WAIT

AND IF YOU SEE THE DARK CLOUDS GATHERING
WELL YOU BETTER RUN FAST, THIS STORM WON'T PASS
OVER THE SEEDS THEY ALL NEED WATERING
YOU JUST GOTTA ACT AS A MATTER OF FACT
BEFORE YOU GO SOMETHING TO KNOW
DONT YOU MOVE TO SLOW COS TIME WON'T WAIT

ANYONE CAN LOSE THE PLOT, ANY MINUTE THE CLOCK COULD STOP
BUT TIME WONT WAIT
Track Name: I'd Do It Again
I’D DO IT AGAIN © P. PASCOE 2013

I NEVER THOUGHT I’D RUN SO FAR
AND I NEVER THOUGHT I’D RUN SO LONG
HERE’S THE THING, DIDN'T REALISE WHAT’S BEEN GOING ON
HOLDING ME BACK FROM THE START

OH LORD ALL THOSE LONELY FEARS
OH LORD ALL THOSE WASTED YEARS

I NEVER THOUGHT I’D COME SO FAR
I NEVER THOUGHT I’D WAIT SO LONG
TO LAY MY CARDS DOWN THERE’S SO MUCH GOING ON
PUSHING ME ON TO THE BRINK

OH LORD ALL THOSE LONELY FEARS
OH LORD ALL THOSE WASTED TEARS

LOOKING IN THE MIRROR IT’S SO EASY TO SEE
SMALL PRICE TO PAY, IT BROUGHT YOU TO ME

OH LORD ALL THOSE LONELY FEARS
OH LORD ALL THOSE WASTED YEARS

LOOKING IN THE MIRROR ITS SO EASY TO SEE
FOR ALL THE JOY ITS BROUGHT ME

I’D DO IT AGAIN.
Track Name: What's True To You
WHAT’S TRUE TO YOU? P. PASCOE © 2013

SITTING IN THE RAIN AS THE SUN COMES THROUGH
DEALING WITH YOUR PAIN TIL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
SOMETIMES IT SEEMS YOU’LL WAIT FOR EVER
THIS MUCH IS TRUE
IT ALWAYS PAYS TO PUT TOGETHER
WHAT'S TRUE TO YOU WHAT'S TRUE

FOLLOWING A PATH OF THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE
WITH A LITTLE LAUGH UNTIL YOU’RE SURE
EVERYONE WILL TELL THEIR STORY TIME AND AGAIN
ALL THE RISKS THE GUTS THE GLORY I'M SAYIN

WHAT'S TRUE TO YOU? WHAT'S TRUE TO YOU ?

EVERYONE’S A TRUE BELIEVER UNTIL THE FALL
ONCE UPON A TIME FOREVER LOOMED SO TALL

WHAT'S TRUE TO YOU? WHAT'S TRUE ?

ONE STEP FORWARD A START IT SEEMS
TWO STEPS FORWARD , ONE BACK JUST KEEP
ON TOWARD YOUR ART...

AND WHAT'S TRUE TO YOU WHAT'S TRUE TO YOU.

SITTING IN THE RAIN AS THE SUN COMES THROUGH
Track Name: The Simple Truth
THE SIMPLE TRUTH ©P. PASCOE 2013

IF I COULD I’D SHELTER YOU FROM THIS
BUT HOW CAN I STOP THIS WAVE CRASHING OVER US NOW?
THE SIMPLE TRUTH IS I CAN’T WE WOULDN’T WANT TO IF WE KNEW
THE SIMPLE TRUTH IS I LOVE YOU

& IF WE COULD SHUT ALL THOSE FEELINGS AWAY
MIGHT AS WELL PAINT ALL THE COLOURS GREY

ALL THOSE SHINY DAYS IN A ROW
THIS ONES TURNED TO GLOOM LONELINESS STEPS IN THE FADING ROOM

& ALL YOUR WORDS REACH OUT TO TOUCH ME NOW
THE MEANING BECOMES CLEARER OVER TIME SOMEHOW

THE SIMPLE TRUTH IS NO ONE CAN SHIELD YOU FROM YOUR PAIN
AND IN OUR LIVES IT HAPPENS AGAIN AND AGAIN
THE FLIP SIDE IS THE JOY THAT LIES AHEAD
WITHOUT THE HIGHS AND LOWS
WE MAY AS WELL BE SOMEWHERE ELSE
NOT HERE

SADNESS SHARED AND SOME SHALLOW LAUGHS DONT MAKE IT GO AWAY
I'M SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE TODAY

& IF WE COULD SHUT ALL THOSE FEELINGS AWAY
MIGHT AS WELL PAINT ALL THE COLOURS GREY
