Track Name: Power In Your Hands
There’s a man alone in the distance
An alien dream in his head
The sand creeping on with persistence
A clue to the things that were said

Wind can move a desert
Water digs a rut in the earth
Space and time are related
And man looks forward to rebirth

There’s a woman on a plane to Chicago
Got carry on baggage in her head
And speed lifts the plane and its cargo
A clue to the life that she’s led

Wind can move the desert
Water digs a rut in the earth
Space and time are related
And man looks forward to rebirth

No water when the well runs dry
Got to make some other plans
What you see and hear you can rely
And there’s power in your hands

There’s a man alone in the distance
An alien dream in his head
The sand creeping on with persistence
A clue to the things that were said … oh yeah

Wind can move a desert
Water digs a rut in the earth
Space and time are related
And man looks forward to rebirth

Wind can move a desert
Water digs a rut in the earth
Space and time are related
And man looks forward to rebirth
Track Name: So Close
We get so close
There's no one else around
Walking down a busy street
In the middle of a town

… So close
I can only see your eyes
Though other people come and go
We'll never say goodbye

We've found something real
We never need to discuss
We talk and chat, we don't let on
What only touches us

… So close
We play our secret game
No matter what they say 'bout us
We'll always feel the same

… So close
I can only see your eyes
Though other people come and go
We'll never say goodbye

We live a life inside
A world we've made for us
We understand that we're the ones
The only ones we trust

And it’s you and me
When I’m feeling down
You get me hot when I’m feeling cold
And I dream of you when you’re not around
Only you can satisfy my soul

… So close
We play our secret game
No matter what they say 'bout us
We'll always feel the same

... So close
I can only see your eyes
Though other people come and go
We'll never say goodbye



We've found something real
We never need to discuss
We talk and chat, we don't let on
What only touches us

... So close
There's no one else around
Walking down a busy street
In the middle of the town

So close … we get so close
Walking down a busy street
In the middle of a town
Walking down a busy street
In the middle of a town

So close … we get so close
Walking down a busy street
In the middle of a town
Track Name: Payback II
You’re talking all the time
Saying nothing new
Using new technology
‘Cause it’s all about the new you

You wheel and deal in cash
In a brand new Merc SL
You live your life inside
What you know you can buy or sell

There’s more to life than what you find
‘Cause freedom is a state of mind
You want a place in history
But the payback is a mystery

Playing with your mind
But you don’t seem to care
The weight of the world don’t play on you
Just as long as you get your share

There’s more to life than what you find
‘Cause freedom is a state of mind

You want the good life
It makes you feel good
The more you get now
The more you want to have if you only could

You look around you
With eyes half closed
You see your saviour
He ain’t gonna help ‘cause he’s clearly indisposed

There’s more to life than what you find
‘Cause freedom is a state of mind
You want a place in history
But the payback is a mystery

A house is not a home
Until you’ve paid the loan
You try to live a life of ease
But you can’t get off the phone

You want a place in history
But the payback is a mystery
You want a place in history
But the payback is a mystery
Track Name: Plans For You
I'm making up some plans for you baby
‘Cause only the best will do for you
I've seen the brightest star in the world
It's shining every night and every day

I won’t let this thing fade away
There's so much more to love than words can say

You can understand how I feel
I'm not in this deal on my own
You been somewhere else in this universe
Waiting like a raindrop to quench my thirst

I won’t let this thing fade away
There's so much more to love than words can say

I've been waiting
Waiting for you

I've been waiting
Waiting for you

I'm making up some plans for you baby
‘Cause only the best will do for you
I've seen the brightest star in the world
It's shining every night and every day

I won’t let this thing fade away
There's so much more to love than words can say

I've been waiting
Waiting for you

I've been waiting
Waiting for you

I've been waiting
Waiting for you
Track Name: Closer
It won’t take long to see inside
To find the love you hide
Got to strip that dark veneer
So what I see is clear

Yeah ….
It’s only love
Part of the game
I want to get closer

I don’t care how long might take
To feel the love you make
I’ll find a way to reach inside
Undo the knots that you tied

You want to show me your tattoo
Of a bird in flight

You tell me what I want to hear
Your words remain so clear

Yeah ….
It’s only love
Part of the game
I want to get closer

It’s written in the way you smile
That makes my life worthwhile
When you look across at me
My beating heart flies free

Yeah ….
It’s only love
Part of the game
I want to get closer

I want to get closer
Closer
I want to get closer
Track Name: Got to Go
Sitting on the bed
What was said still in my head
Now we’re both feeling blue

We’ve seen what’s gone before
It’s made us not so sure
But we know what to do

We’re gonna live tomorrow
Though we cry today

We're sleeping alone
We're never off the phone
But we talk apart

Leaving is hard
You leave a lot behind
To make a new start

We’re gonna live tomorrow
Though we cry today
We’re gonna live tomorrow
Though we cry today

Living in a dream
Denies reality
We’ve got to go
Got to be free
Tonight

We’ve got to go
We need to be free
We’ve got to go
Got to be free

We’re gonna live tomorrow
Though we cry today
We’re gonna live tomorrow
Even though we cry today

Living in a dream
Denies reality
We’ve got to go
Got to be free
Tonight

Tonight … Tonight … Tonight …
Track Name: Say Goodbye
When the sun is high
They seek the shelter of the shade
Kids run and hide and play
They have no cause to be afraid

The sea has been their friend
They dance and sing their happy song
They don’t know what the future holds
They only know where they belong

They know it in their hearts
The ocean does not fight
It gives them what they need

They wake up everyday
And wade along the shore
With hope and faith they pray
That they won’t ever … have to say … say goodbye

They look up and see the stars
That shine so brightly in their eyes
They smile with wonder at the sky
But waves below hide desperate cries

Now there’s tension in their days
They don’t know where their future lies
They know they have to change their ways
It’s written in their children’s eyes

They know it in their hearts
The ocean does not fight
It gives them what they need

In the middle of the night
The tide begins to turn
With hope and faith they pray
That they won’t ever … have to say … say goodbye

Say goodbye
Say goodbye

Don’t want to leave my home
Don’t want to say goodbye

I don’t want to leave my friends
But I know I’ve got to … say goodbye
Say goodbye

Gonna miss my friends,
Miss my home
I don’t want to have to … say goodbye
We don’t want to say … say goodbye

They didn’t want to have to leave
It’s goodbye to grass and trees
They’re climate refugees
They know there’s no reprieve

Say goodbye
Don’t want to say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Track Name: Waiting for the Rain
Waiting for the rain

To splash into my eyes
Waiting for the sun

To light the darkened skies

There’s nothing in the world
That feels so real

Waiting for the dawn

When darkness turns to light

I live inside an open box
That makes me feel so free
But what I really need to do is find reality

Waiting for the day

When your smile lights up the night
Laughing at the rain

That falls and shines in the night

Looking for a way

To see inside your mind
Diamonds in your eyes
Are all I can find

I live inside an open box
That makes me feel so free
But what I really need to do is find reality

Waiting for the rain

To splash into my eyes

Waiting for the sun

To shine a light on all their lies
Track Name: Someone Special
Every night you lay down
And leave the world behind
Thinking of a way
To make your dreams come true someday

We enter this world on our own
But need someone on the way

A signpost gives directions
When where to go is unclear
But waiting for a sign
Can leave you on the borderline

We enter this world on our own
But need someone on the way

Leave the rest behind
Don't look back it's alright
You need someone to fill the void
Yeah … you know how it works

Got to be someone special to turn on the light
Got to be someone special to turn on the light

In time we make a difference
Though it seems we’re not in control
In life we act out parts
Plays need someone in the title role

We enter this world on our own
But need someone on the way

Got to live a life outside
‘Cause living a life inside
Only keeps you safe
From what you need
To see what's real for you

Leave the rest behind
Don't look back it's alright
You need someone to fill the void
Yeah … you know how it works

Got to be someone special to turn on the light
Got to be someone special to turn on the light

Someone special to turn on the light
… turn on the light
Track Name: Malcolm Forest Wakford - Whose World
It don’t matter what you play
Don’t want to censor what you say

I’m ok with what you do
I hope the same applies to you

Some people want to break away
Draw a line with a different view
They’re intent to paint the world blue
But whose world is it anyway?

The way it goes when things are fine
When all that matters is ‘what’s mine’
The way it goes when things get tough
Till we say we’ve had enough

Some people want to break away
Draw a line with a different view
They’re intent to paint the world blue
But whose world is it anyway?

I look east and then I look to the west
I see people laugh and see them cry
There’s no denying that some are repressed
A man looks back I see a tear in his eye

Some people want to break away
Draw a line with a different view
They’re intent to paint the world blue
But whose world is it anyway?

It don’t matter what you play
Don’t want to censor what you say

I’m ok with what you do
I hope the same applies to you

Some people want to break away
Draw a line with a different view
Intent to paint the world blue
But whose world is it anyway?
