Track Name: Give It All You've Got
You were wanting the clamour of the crowd to hide your silence
You resented them for being loud and not talking to you
You hate yourself for feeling proud - they'll never notice you now
But there's a way - just listen to what I say

Where do you go from here ?
You've got to give it all you've got
Decide what you're looking for
And then give it your best shot

Life for you started tough
One chance was all you got
And on the way the road got rough
But you got through though
You tell me now you've had enough
You want to take it back
And there's a way - just listen to what I say yeah
(Stop, look and listen)

Where do you go from here ?
You've got to give it all you've got
Decide what you're looking for
And then give it your best shot

No one's gonna hand it to you
You have to grab it for yourself
You know there's no use waiting
It will happen without you

There's always a chance for those that try
Don't lose hope now
You'll never know if you don't ask why
Have a little faith
And in a while you'll forget to cry
Look back and smile
And there's a way - just listen to what I say yeah

Where do you go from here ?
You've got to give it all you've got
Decide what you're looking for
And then give it your best shot
Your best shot

Where do you go from here ?
You've got to give it all you've got
Track Name: Dances By Herself
She's living in a self-imposed hell
Hazards in the kitchen stop those hands from itchin'
She's so desperate to push her way outside

Back around the house it crawls
A fear - the child of monsters coming back to haunt her
The memories of days will turn her hands to clay

As she walks and talks and dances by herself
She lives and breathes and dances by herself

You and I would never understand the things she has forgotten
They come back to her often
They come crawling out from behind the mask she wears
For lately love and hate leave scars across her eyes
The memories of days she can't keep locked away

As she walks and talks and dances by herself
She lives and breathes
Don't tell her what she needs

'Cos she's walking - don't push her away
Talking - about her life
She ain't smiling - don't believe her
Crying - don't turn your shoulder away

She's practising her pride
It's so ugly magnified

As she walks and talks and dances by herself
She lives and breathes and dances by herself
Track Name: Footsteps of Fools
A broken family
The game must end for hearts to mend
You've played the same game too
It's a fear we share, me and you
Will i make the same mistake ?

Older men I know are breaking hearts by breaking rules
Will I learn my lesson ?
Or will I follow in the footsteps of fools

Will there be a change in me like those who've gone before ?
Who sacrifice the love they have in the hope for something more
And turning to a stranger's face
They find themselves in a lonely place
full of broken dreams and bridges they have burned
Will i make the same mistake ?

Older men I know are breaking hearts by breaking rules
Will I learn my lesson ?
Or will I follow in the footsteps of fools
Follow in the footsteps of fools
Track Name: Walls
Time - time has struck inside of me setting something up in my mind
You - you look inside of me never knowing what you'll find

Fine - I'll take my chances putting our love on the line
See - so many changes
Mind over matter in time

Well it's been so long since I felt your love
I've seen it in your eyes looking down on me
Breaking up, breaking up the walls surrounding me
So don't stop your eyes looking down on me
Keep on being the you in me
Breaking up, breaking up the walls surrounding me

Time - time has struck inside of me setting something up in my mind
You - you look inside of me never knowing what you'll find

Well it's been so long since I felt your love
I've seen it in your eyes looking down on me
Breaking up, breaking up the walls surrounding me
So don't stop your eyes looking down on me
Keep on being the you in me
Breaking up, breaking up the walls surrounding me
Track Name: Downtown
Sitting in a foreign land thinking 'bout my home
I'm not an unhappy man but I sometimes miss my own
Thinking 'bout my life in the land that used to be
So full of happiness and harmony

But on the last run through town things were looking down
Empty pockets all around
Empty windows downtown

The man on the land is losing ground
They say the markets just can't be found
Losing pride at double speed
He's got his cattle and his children to feed

And on the last run through town things were looking down
Empty pockets all around
Empty windows downtown

I had to leave those troubled times
I had to leave them far behind
Living in troubled times just brings you down down down
Going downtown
Going down
Track Name: Yesteryear
Lying in the streets that hide no shame
Crying in the face of winter pain
They can talk about it but the hurt's still there
And the memories come rushing back from yesteryear
Come rushing back from yesteryear

Sunshine in the city so bright it makes you weep
The bustle and the buses make it hard to get to sleep
People won't talk 'cos they think it's different there
But you feel the same, just your place has changed since yesteryear
Come rushing back from yesteryear
Yesteryear
Shed a tear for yesteryear

We know the ways of old
We lived for true romance
But the light turned gold and the people turned away
Away

Yesteryear
Come rushing back from yesteryear
Yesteryear
Shed a tear for yesteryear
Yesteryear
Yesteryear
Track Name: Never Change
If it's important to you that I be shy
I won't even lift my eyes
And if you need me to be gentle
You'll barely know I'm there
And when you call me for no reason
I'll be waiting by the phone

If you think it's what you want then I'll do it
Just remember

When you met me you said I was the one
And the first time that you loved me girl
You said never change
Never change

If you think that I should be tough
I'll treat you like a slave
And if you say I should be cool
I can be cold
And when you say I talk too much
That'll be the last you hear from me

If you think it's what you want then I'll do it
Just remember

When you met me you said I was the one
And the first time that you loved me girl
You said never change
Never change

I'm not gonna play your games
If you have something to say
Say it yourself
Is it really me you want ?
'Cos I'm staying
Just remember

When you met me you said I was the one
And the first time that you loved me girl
You said never change
Never change

I won't even lift my eyes
If it's important to you that I be shy
Never change
Never change
Track Name: Solo
Nobody knows where you're going
Nobody knows where you've been
You've been through some times of change
From the the things that you have seen

Girl both of us know that times for you have been rough
But you've got to keep on going
This ain't know time to say "enough"

You're going solo - you're throwing it all away
Solo - when people just want you to stay
Solo - throwing it all away
Solo - you had to have your own way

First born at age 17
That didn't make a family home
And in the time it took to create
He had left you there alone

And later on further down the line
Another man came for you
I really think he wanted to help
But you just wanted something new

You're going solo - you're throwing it all away
Solo - when people just want you to stay
Solo - throwing it all away
Solo - you had to have your own way

Then a call came for help
It came my way
I really wanted to help
But I think you have to make it come your way

Solo - you're throwing it all away
Solo - when people just want you to stay
Solo - throwing it all away
Solo - you had to have your own way

You're throwing it all away
Track Name: Luxury Alone
Those old photos
They sure tell a tale
Of a scared little girl net door
She sure grew up

I keep every word you send me
It's just useless mail
Couldn't bring you close enough

Come back here to love me
I wasn't meant to live this life of luxury alone
Come back here to love me
I wasn't meant to live this life of luxury alone

So how's life in the streets of the world ?
Wish I could have my way
Travelling blues are testing you
Don't let 'em get you down, no

I've got the same old stories
Just on a different day
And there's no fun without you around


Duty free, souvenirs
Take them back - I don't need them
They can't give me what I need

Come back here to love me
I wasn't meant to live this life of luxury alone
Come back here to love me
I wasn't meant to live this life of luxury alone

I want you home
Track Name: Strangers Before We Met
Feels like I've known you all my life
And when you come I feel alive
So much to believe with nothing said
I hear your voice
It's in my head

I can't turn away, I will never forget
Oh I just can't believe that we were strangers before we met

Once in a while in a lifetime I lose control
Something takes me over and moves my soul
Broken dreams and memories all around
I try picking up the pieces but there's no one around safe and sound

Maybe it's just not worth it
Maybe there's no regrets
Oh I just can't believe that we were strangers before we met
Strangers before we met
