Track Name: Thin Air
THIN AIR Words & Music © P. Pascoe

IT’S A MYSTERY HOW WE'VE
HELD TOGETHER SO LONG -NOT WHY IT’S FALLING APART
WE’RE SO LONELY HERE IN THE DARK
DONT KNOW WHERE WE BELONG - GOT TO GO BACK TO THE START
NOW WE’RE HERE WE’RE LIVING IN FEAR
YET EVERYONE CAN DO GOOD
AND THREATS HANG IN THE AIR
LIKE A WASP AT THE DOOR
GIVEN CREDENCE BY THE MEDIA

ANOTHER CHANGE ON THE WIND, A DIFFERENT KIND OF TACK
WE’LL FOLLOW OUR NOSE TO THE END OF THE SHOW
LONG FORGOTTEN DREAMS STREAM INTO OUR MINDS
DONT YOU WONDER HOW THEY SEEM TO KNOW
WHERE TO GO FROM HERE
DO THEY COME FROM THIN AIR?

SO FRAGMENTED A HOLY DUDE
COULD LIVE OVER THE FENCE AND NEVER AFFECT OUR MOOD
AND WE DAMAGE OUR SELVES HURTING EVERYONE

FOR ALL MY OPTIMISM AND ANALYTICAL THINKING
I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO CLEAR THIS SOUP
DO THEY COME FROM THIN AIR?
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
Track Name: At What Cost
AT WHAT COST? Words & Music © P. Pascoe

ALWAYS THE STORY’S THE SAME , JUST ADDING FUEL TO THE FLAME
HE SAID THAT SHE SAID AND SHE SAID THAT HE SAID AHH

ALWAYS SEEMS SUCH A SHAME , NEARING THE END OF THE GAME
SHE SAID THAT HE SAID AND HE SAID THAT SHE SAID AHH

WHERE IS THE LOVE THAT WE FOUND?
WHERE IS THE LOVE THAT IS LOST?
TURNING IT ROUND AND ROUND , AT WHAT COST?

HOPING THAT FRIENDSHIP REMAINS, YET WHAT POINT IF NOTHING IS GAINED?
TRAVELING IN CIRCLES JUST DRAGGING THIS PAIN UP AGAIN

WONDERING: AT WHAT COST?
LOVING YOU HAS COME AT A COST
Track Name: The Man In Blue
THE MAN IN BLUE Words & Music © P. Pascoe

SO FIRST HE’LL PLAY THE WIDE EYED INNOCENT
THEN THE VICTIM HE’LL EMBRACE
THEN HE’LL CONTINUE TO REFLECT THE SENTIMENT
YOU’LL SEE IT WRITTEN ON HIS FACE

THEN HIS WORLD WILL TURN UPSIDE DOWN
HE’S LOST HIS BALANCE HERE
THUS SHOW’S PERFORMED BY A QUIET CLOWN
LAUGHING THROUGH HIS FEAR

IT’S BEEN A LONG LONG TIME TIL HERE
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE, IT’S TRUE
A BLINK OF THE EYE, WHEN YOU COUNT THE YEARS
YEH, IT’S THE MAN IN BLUE

I’M SOMEHOW THANKFUL FOR THE WOUNDS
SOMETIMES I REALLY WISH I’D LEARNED IT SOONER
NO YOU CANT ALWAYS PICK THE KIND OF TUNE
FROM THE FIRST FEW BARS
SO SAYS THE MAN IN BLUE

WHEN WE LOOK BACK ON OUR WAYWARD TIMES
AND THINK OF WHAT WE’VE LEARNED
WERE THERE REALLY THAT MANY SERIOUS CRIMES?
JUST THE ODD FINGER BURNED
SO WE DISCOVERED A BLUEPRINT HERE
FOR LAUGHING THROUGH OUR TEARS
Track Name: One Thing We Know
ONE THING WE KNOW Words & Music © P. Pascoe

I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU’RE GROWING SO FAST
EYES ON THE FUTURE, YOU’RE FREE FROM YOUR PAST
LOVING YOUR LIFE IS THE THING YOU DO BEST
DOING WHATS RIGHT AND FORGETTING THE REST

ONE THING WE KNOW IS TO LET IT ALL GO

AS I LOOK THROUGH YOUR EYES I REMEMBER BEING YOUNG
AWAIT THE SURPRISE AND THE BELL WILL BE RUNG
ALWAYS IMAGINE THE BEST YOU CAN BE
TAKE WHAT YOU KNOW AND THE REST YOU WILL SEE

ONE THING WE KNOW IS TO LET IT ALL GO

I HEAR VOICES INSIDE ME
I DONT KNOW WHAT THIS LIFE’S GONNA BE
I FEAR NOTHING

ONE THING WE KNOW IS TO LET IT ALL GO
Track Name: Harbour Lights
HARBOUR LIGHTS Words & Music © P. Pascoe

YOU CAME TO ME LIKE YOU WERE CHOSEN
TO WALK THE PLANK OF DEEP DESPAIR
YOU LEFT ME COLD YOU LEFT ME FROZEN
I'LL TRY TO CLEAR MY MIND WITH THE SEA AIR
TIME HAS REARRANGED MY MEMORY
SEEMS LIKE A WILD HAPPY RIDE
YOUR CHANGING FACE IS NOW A GALLERY
ALL THE DARKNESS SWEPT ASIDE

THE HARBOUR LIGHTS ARE CALLING
AND THE NIGHT IS DRIFTING BY
THE SHIFTING TIDE IS PULLING ME
TO A COLD REFLECTION OF THE STARRY SKY
WHY SHOULD WE SHOULDER PAIN FROM LONG AGO
THAT LEAD ME HERE IN THESE DARK HOURS?
I’LL LOOK BEYOND TOMORROW’S RAIN AND SNOW
FOR NOW I FEEL THIS AWESOME POWER

THIS FEELING NOW SURROUNDS ME
AND IT COMES FROM DEEP WITHIN
I NEVER KNEW UNTIL YOU FOUND ME
THEN LEFT ME HERE SO LOST AND THIN

I’LL PUT THIS LONELINESS TO REST
YEAH, I’LL LEAVE IT IN THE PAST
THERE’LL BE NOTHING HERE TO REMIND US
JUST A FOGGY MEMORY IN THE GLASS
STILL THE HARBOUR LIGHTS ARE CALLING
BUT THE DAWN IS COMING FAST
AND THE CALM HAS STOPPED ME FALLING
I’LL MAKE THIS ONE SAD TEAR MY LAST

THIS FEELING NOW SURROUNDS ME
AND IT COMES FROM DEEP WITHIN
YOU WRAP YOUR HEALING ARMS AROUND ME
NOW WE’RE FREE TO START AGAIN

THIS FEELING NOW SURROUNDS ME
AND IT COMES FROM DEEP WITHIN
I’M THANKFUL FOR THE TRIP THAT BOUND ME
TO FACE MY HEART AND SHED MY SINS
Track Name: Life Is
LIFE IS Words & Music © P. Pascoe

LIFE IS SHORT LIFE IS LONG
WINTER’S SILENCE BECOMES SUMMER’S SONG
A LONG LULL, A LULLABY
A HAPPY LAUGH, A HAPPY SIGH

IF YOU SHOOT FOR PERFECTION
YOU’LL ACHIEVE NOTHING IN THE END
EXCELLENCE INSTEAD
AND YOUR VICTORIES WILL BE PENNED

WHEN YOU’RE FLAT OUT BROKE
WITH BARELY A WHISPER OF A HOPE
LOVE’S ALL YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW TO COPE

LIFE IS SHORT LIFE IS LONG
FOR NOW, HERE’S WHERE YOU BELONG
IT ALL DEPENDS UPON YOUR VIEW
FOR TODAY YOU KNOW THAT’S TRUE

LIKE DIFFERENT FRUIT
FROM THE SAME TREE, NO MYSTERY
ALL OUR DREAMS
INDIFFERENT GUISES, ALL DESCRIBED AS LOVE

HEAR THE THOUGHTS OF THE OLD
IN THE VOICES OF THE YOUNG
SEE THE THREADS OF GOLD
BECOME EXPRESSION SPUN

WHEN YOU’RE FLAT OUT ON THE DECK
YOUR SHIP HAS RUN AGROUND
LOVE IS REALLY ALL YOU NEED
TO TURN IT BACK AROUND

LIFE IS SHORT LIFE IS LONG
PLAY YOUR LIFE LIKE A HAPPY SONG
LOVERS SPEND YOUR MOMENTS WELL
YEH, RING IT LIKE A BELL
Track Name: The Door
THE DOOR Words & Music © P. Pascoe

HOW DO WE MAKE SENSE OF WHAT MAY SEEM WRONG OR RIGHT?
AT TIMES ITS ALL SUCH A DARK MYSTERIOUS MESS
LIFES LIKE A RIVER: ONE MOMENT, ONE LOOK’S TOO BRIGHT
NEXT DAY ITS TOO DEEP TO GUESS.

I'M BLINKING THROUGH MY TEARS
THINKING THIS JUST ISN'T FAIR
TO THINK OF YOUR SMILE JUST MAKES ME CRY MORE
SEEING YOU IN YOUR DESPAIR FEELING IT, I’M WITH YOU THERE
BUT YOU STAND ALONE BEFORE THE DOOR

THINKING BACK TO ALL THE GOOD TIMES WE HAD
RIGHT NOW JUST SEEMS LIKE A CRUEL JOKE
WHO EVER GUESSED THIS PATH COULD HURT SO BAD
I’M GONNA TAKE A WALK IN THE RAIN IN A SLATE GREY CLOAK

I KNOW THAT LYING HERE MAKES NO SENSE
CRYING IN THE DARK, EVEN LESS
BUT RIGHT NOW I CAN'T FIND THE LIGHT
BUT I'M TRYING BUT EVEN SO I'M SIGHING COS I KNOW
YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T WIN THIS FIGHT

WHEN I THINK BACK ABOUT ALL THE THINGS YOU'VE STOOD FOR
LOOKING BACK SOMETIMES OUR VIEW IS SOMETIMES LIKE A FLOODED RIVER
WE’LL ALL TAKE LEAVES OUT OF YOUR BROOK FOR SURE
WHEN ALL’S SAID AND DONE
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU TAKE, IT'S WHAT YOU'RE GIVEN.
I'M BLINKING THROUGH MY TEARS THINKING THIS JUST ISN'T FAIR
TO THINK OF YOUR SMILE JUST MAKES ME CRY MORE
SEEING YOU IN YOUR DESPAIR FEELING IT, I’M WITH YOU THERE
BUT YOU STAND ALONE BEFORE THE DOOR

PAIN GRIEF AND HAPPINESS IN THIS LIFE
PAIN GRIEF AND HAPPINESS IT’S PASSING BY
Track Name: Life's A Show
LIFES A SHOW P. PASCOE

SHOW TO ME IT'S TIME TO OPEN WIDE THERE'S NO NEED TO HIDE
BEHIND YOUR CAREFUL CHARADE
SHARE WITH ME WHAT YOUR TRUE THOUGHTS ARE
LOOKING BACK SO FAR
AT THIS LIFE THAT WE'VE MADE

AS THE EMBERS GLOW IN THE QUIET FIRE WITH YOUR DEEPEST SIGH
LET YOUR MIND WANDER FREE
SHOW YOURSELF WHAT'S YOUR TRUE DESIRE
WHEN YOU THINK HIGHER
THAN THE THINGS WE HEAR AND WE SEE


SO PLAY YOUR PART LIKE ITS YOUR FINAL HOUR
COS LIFE'S AN ART, FEEL THE POWER
TAKE YOUR OWN TRUE PATH AROUND EACH BLIND BEND
FEEL THE LOVE HAVE A LAUGH
AS WE FIND THERES NO END TO THIS SHOW

THIS TIME AROUND KEEP AN OPEN MIND IN YOUR DREAM YOU’LL FIND
SO MUCH LOVE WAITING THERE
ON YOUR BITTER PAST A CURTAIN FALLS
THERE'S NO NEED TO DWELL
IN THAT SHADOWY LAND

THERES NO DENYING THERES A RIDE WE’RE ON
THERES NO END TO THIS SHOW

SO PLAY YOUR PART LIKE IT'S YOUR FINAL HOUR

Track Name: Miss You Guys
MISS YOU GUYS Words & Music © P. Pascoe

JUST LAST WEEK THIS ALLEY WAY OF CAFES
WAS ALIGHT WITH OUR LAUGHTER AND FUN
TODAY THIS SCENE NEEDS A LONELY TUNE
THINK I KNOW THE ONE
IN FACT I KNOW IT SO WELL
SOMEWHERE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND

I HOPE THAT WHEN I’M OLD SITTING BY THE FIRE
I’LL STILL HAVE SOME DREAMS TO HOLD & AS I SIGH
I’D JUST LIKE TO SAY I MISS YOU GUYS

HOW WAS YOUR WEEK, THE ONE TO WHICH TO WHICH YOU RETURNED
AFTER WE GOT SO LOST IN TIME
NOW I COULD DO WITH A HAPPY TUNE
I THINK I GOT A RHYME
AND HERE’S THE SPIRIT OF THE THING
SOMEWHERE INSIDE THE LOVE IT BRINGS

I KNOW THAT WHEN I’M OLD SITTING BY THE FIRE
I’LL HAVE MY MEMORIES TO HOLD & AS I SIGH
I KNOW I’LL SAY I MISS YOU GUYS

SOMETIMES I HEAR IT WHEN I CATCH MY BREATH
I’LL CARRY IT WITH ME
JUST NEED THE RHYTHM AND THE HARMONY
TO MAKE THIS GREY DAY SUNNY, GREY DAY SUNNY, YEAH
I HOPE THAT WHEN WE’RE OLD
WE’RE ALL SITTING AROUND THE FIRE
GOT SOME TALES THAT NEED TO BE TOLD
& AS THE MUSIC TAKES US HIGHER

YEH, WHEN WE’RE OLD AND LOST IN TIME
THE MEMORIES HOLD WE NEED TO REMIND
FROM THE TONGUES OF THE OLD TO THE MINDS OF THE YOUNG
STORIES GOLD, LA LA LA LA
I NEED TO SAY I MISS YOU GUYS
I’D JUST LIKE TO SAY I MISS YOU GUYS.
