Track Name: For you
FOR YOU KARL ROBINS

The lights of England in the distance,
The memories beating like a drum.
Into the heart of a love so true,
On the wings of the dreams to come,
On the wings of the dreams to come.

And thoughts of hope and understanding,
they touch your soul to set you free.
Just like the rising of the summer breeze,
or the waves on the rolling seas,
Or the waves on the rolling seas.

REFRAIN.
And you know if I could be there, to share the things you do,
I'd be singing this song, singing this song,
I'd be singing this song ...for you.

I've spent some time in crazy thinking,
somehow it all comes out the same,
But from the sinking there's a kind of peace,
like the sun shining through the rain,
Like the sun shining through the rain.

And I can see the future clearly,
I know the dawn of each new day,
Brings out wishes and a need so strong,
to the start of the passion play,
To the start of the passion play.

REFRAIN.
And you know if I could be there, to share the things you do.
I'd be dreaming this dream, dreaming this dream,
I'd be dreaming this dream for you.
Track Name: These words you know
Those words you know

I don’t think I’ll sleep tonight, Can’t get you out of my mind
I don’t want to close my eyes on this crazy loving time
Street lights flicker and the rain outside,
Comes down my windowpane
Soft music in the cool of the air keeps you in the frame

I want to hold on, hold on tight
And never let you go
I want feel you close to me
And whisper sweet and low… those words you know

I don’t think I’ll sleep tonight, Can’t get you out of my mind
I don’t want to dream tonight I’m scared of what I’ll find
Voices talking in the distance
Comes floating to my brain
Dark shadows take the long way round then back to earth again

I want to hold on, hold on tight
And never let you go
I want feel you close to me
And whisper sweet and low… those words you know

I don’t think I’ll sleep tonight, Can’t get you out of my mind
Strange I never saw it coming this time, Its pain but a different kind
It hangs in clouds like a lightning strike
Looking for a place to belong
Armour cracked and sword in pieces all my defences gone

I want to hold on, hold on tight
And never let you go
I want feel you close to me
And whisper sweet and low… those words you know
Track Name: This Night
This Night Karl Robins 12/2/02

Looking through my eyes,
You're still a million miles away
Lost in your innocence, not knowing what to say.
It doesn't come easy
I could help you if you'd try
But there's so many broken wings, there's nowhere left to fly.

Chorus
So look into your heart
Take another step into the dark
And Love will fly with you and Love
Will be right there with you and Love
My Love will see you through this night

Caught in the silence,
Can you feel it in your bones?
Stuck in the middle ground, you've come to call your own.
Could you believe it?
Could you take another chance?
Come down from your pedestal and try to join the dance.

Chorus: as before

And when you're heading for the dream
When the winds are trying to move you from your course
Yes when resistance seems so strong
It only takes a thought and you belong

Chorus: as before

Instrumental and chorus
Track Name: Wait and see
Wait and see Karl Robins

You’re walking down that windy road
Just where you’re going nobody knows
I’ll take you where the flowers grow
Take you where the rivers flow
Take you where you want to go just wait and see

You pick the card you have to choose
There’s some you win and there’s some you lose
Some just keep on passing by
Some may never catch your eye
But some re like the summer skies, just wait and see

CHORUS
And all that you know, all that you care
All that you feel, all that you share
All that is right, all that is fair will reach you wait and see

I don’t understand it all
How some keep running while others fall
Old friends fade and fall from view
But new ones keep on coming through
I know that it’s the same for you just wait and see.

CHORUS: AS BEFORE

You’re walking down that windy road
Just where you’re going nobody knows
I’ll take you where the flowers grow
Take you where the rivers flow
Take you where you want to go just wait and see
Track Name: Dancing with ghosts
Dancing with Ghosts Karl Robins

Sarah waits in the old house, by the mainstreet store
Looking out of the window of the second floor.
Jimmy looks as he passes by
Just like he’s done a million times before.
Wondering if she remembers
If she ever thinks about him any more.

There was a time when he’d hold her and her eyes would shine
Sweet words between them and the world seemed fine.
Then the night when the wind changed
And the memories flooded back into her mind.
And the words that she said then
That she had to be cruel to be kind. She said…

CHORUS
I could tell you what I want, give you all I can
Take you home but it won’t be right
And if it’s any consolation you’d a better chance than most
But I’m still dancing with ghosts.

And he took his desperation and went on his way
Hoping his frustration would fade some day.
And Sarah took a journey inside her head
And she swore she’d never take that chance again.
And she’d never need to tell them
Never need to hear her harsh voice saying…

CHORUS: AS BEFORE

One morning in the springtime, she woke to find
All the feelings that she thought she’d left behind
And she slept through the night-time
Waiting for the sun to shine again.
And she woke and she felt fine
Saw Jimmy standing out there in the rain, and she said…

CHORUS
I could tell you what you want, give you all I can
And this time it just feels right.
And if it’s any consolation, I’ve loved you more than most
Now I’m not dancing with ghosts.
