Track Name: One Life
As rare as a star in the midday sun
the song of the lark the touches no one
as a boat that never reaches the shore
or a child who won’t cry out for more
As as a clown who cannot smile or crook without guile
as a lion thats never rattled its cage or a book without a page

This Life was given to me
one life is living through me
This life was given to me
pack it up , pack it up reel it in

As rare as a foot that will never ever dance
or a gambler who will not take a chance
as a tomorrow that will never see a today
or an arrow that does not know its way
as a leave that will never catch the breeze
or a secret that will not keep

This Life was given to me
one life is living through me
This life was given to me
pack it up , pack it up reel it in

Hey, Hey, Hey One Life
Hey, Hey, Hey This Life

As rare as a winter that will never see the spring
or a mountain without a peak

or a heart that will not broken
a question without an answer
as rare as a clock that will not strike ten
or a journey without an end
or a spirit that will never be released
never be released
Track Name: Living to tell the tale
Oh sad eyes have you seen today, wrestled from the night it feel your way
Ghost ships as the sunset bloomed the wind she howled the wind she blew
It's one thing to set foot upon the shoreline and another to walk away

When your Living to tell the tale

Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
Sombras en la orilla
Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
Cantan tu agonía
Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
Fundirse en el agua que celebra la vida

Oh sad eyes have you seen beyond behind the sky
A butterfly of dream is calling, turn and face that tide
The way of world unfolds for you, step, step, stepping out of the blue
t's one thing to set foot upon the shoreline and another to walk away

When your Living to tell the tale

Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
Luz de carne y hueso
Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
Puede hacerte preso
Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
No dejes que te cubra
Enciende tu propio fuego

Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
Limbos de sonrisas
Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
No son de mentira
Ojos tristes, ojos tristes
Fundirse en el agua
Anda, y sube la cima!

Fire fire, burning burning
When your living to tell the tale
Track Name: Joseph
In Paris under a bridge on the cardboard amongst the leaves
lies a vision that's rarely seen from the light of joseph's dreams
His roots are unclear and his age a mystery but one thing shines so true a love for life through & through
And as time slips away from from the morning through the day
He never loses his grip, he's not a ghost of the machine

Joseph, Don't lay down
Joseph, The Way Round
Joseph, There's more colours to be found

The whisky tastes good to his lips & three bottles a day does he tip
On the street painting soliloquies - down on his knees
Joseph I 'm thanking you for those brush strokes that you choose
through the picture frame, through your eyes,  you give my spirit food
Oh, why can't it be we cannot live Joseph's dreams
Why in hunger are so many buried while others wage war on their brothers lands

Joseph, Don't lay down
Joseph, The Way Round
Joseph, There's more colours to be found

Where do you draw the line, to the earth & sky
What fires your dreams?!
Track Name: The Invitation
Don't wanna know your dark secrets
Don't wanna know where you come from
Just tell me where your going to
Are you heading for a new plateau?
Don't wanna hear about your sorrows
Don't wanna hear how much money you have
Just tell me about your hopes and dreams
Are you heading for a new plateau?

Build a fire, Come on and let it burn

Don't wanna hear how old you are or if the story your telling me is true
Just tell me you'll look a fool for love
Are you heading for a new plateau?
It don't matter who you are or how you came to be here
Just tell me that you'll never shrink back
Are you heading for a new plateau?

Build a fire, Come on and let it burn

I've seen the flowers rise from the earth and tasted the blossom
of springs end, Lived and breathed the wisdom of my father and sang my mothers tears, held the puppeteer and felt his radiance then was woken beyond the arc of dream
The Sky fell to reveal a myriad of stars burning in a furnace of one and I heard the gentle beat of the wind under a dark autumn sun, and as the sky cleared and the land breathed - nothing was quite what it seemed...

Don't wanna know your dark secrets
Don't wanna know where you come from
Just tell me where your going to
Are you heading for a new plateau?
Don't wanna hear about your sorrows
Don't wanna hear how much money you have
Just tell me about your hopes and dreams
Are you heading for a new plateau?
