I will wait for you If my travellin’ shoes can be found In the same place as my heart I wish they’d find some common ground I know Life is not a fairytale Maybe I’ll grow Into these shoes somehow Lucky for you But not lucky for me My heart is on its knees, oh My heart is on its knees How long will your eyes Be searching across these desert skies for mine? Miles and miles away I’ll keep on singing and dancing whilst I wait I know Life is not a fairytale Maybe I’ll grow Into these shoes somehow Lucky for you But not lucky for me My heart is on its knees, oh My heart is on its knees

You’ve got a soul full of love But a hindering heart So I didn’t know what to say When you came to me that day With that look on your face And all I could do was fix my green eyes on you And hope my love Could steal your doubts away But oh my love All that I think I know Is my love for you Is here to stay Sometimes it’s not enough just to say It’ll all be ok We all need someone to hold So darlin’ here is my heart You’ve had it from the start Now it’s yours to hold Until we grow old I hope my love Could still steal your doubts away But oh, my love All that I think I know Is my love for you Is here to stay We’ll keep dreaming tonight It’ll all be alright Then you’ll wake up in the morning With me by your side

See I sold my soul To a woman named Jane And to a life of broken dreams It pains me to say my Soul’s not all she took When she wrapped my heart in chains So I left that dusty place With tears rollin’ down my face When she gave her hand to another man Since that awful day I’ve been so ashamed Of the man that I became Oh my Jane Why’d you send me away To roam these desert skies? I’m feelin’ so lonesome I could die Since that day My heart was taken from me Oh my mama was taken from this world She taught me how to sing my old Troubles away Now I’m singin’ about my Jane Oh my Jane Why’d you send me away To roam these desert skies? I’m feelin’ so lonesome I could die Every time that sun Says goodnight to me Over that far northern sea I can’t help thinkin’ about my Jane back home But I know that’s not where I belong Yeah I know that’s not where I belong Yeah I know I gotta keep singin’ my song… Oh my Jane Why’d you send me away To roam these desert skies? I’m feelin’ so lonesome I could die

We float out to see The clouds rollin' in Light is hard to find But on this rainy day My fears were washed away When you came pouring in Into my heart Into my heart... As your brown eyes meet mine I never know what they'll find Time slows down As I'm counting the days Till our eyes part ways Over the crashing waves Of my heart These waves of my heart... Maybe one day We'll meet again At the edge of the sea Where time stands still In my heart Like back at the start You came into My heart...

Two Feet 03:08
I don’t love you anymore And thank God I don’t need you, or anyone Since my heart’s been abused All this time, not by you But who I let you be You think you broke me down But now I’m standing on my own two feet Learning how to live and breathe again I got so tired of being angry I’m standing on my own two feet Learning how to forgive again The best thing I ever did was leave Now I’m listening To my own heartbeat I’m not blinded anymore By the love I felt for you I let my heart bleed Still it loved you, you see This is not who I’m meant to be You think you broke me down I’m standing on my own two feet Learning how to live and breathe again I got so tired of being angry I’m standing on my own two feet Learning how to forgive again The best thing I ever did was leave Now I’m listening to my own heartbeat

Invincible 04:35
I’ve fallen down that black hole Following Alice’s trail I hear something in the air that says “You’re safe here” I feel magic in my bones tonight And my heart feels lighter These mud brick walls They speak their secrets And make me feel They make me feel like I’m invincible Invincible There’s a light shining through The kitchen window pane I realise this isn’t hole But a house to call a home I wonder if she has a name She feels so alight With this life I don’t have to speak a word But I know she’s listening And she makes me feel like I’m invincible Invincible In her arms tonight I can hear the trees whispering my name They say let us carry your worries away Then a little bird floats by And lands on my right side And he says He says You’re invincible Invincible I’m invincible With us you’re safe and sound Deep below the ground With us you’re safe and sound Deep below the ground Where the light shines And darkness Doesn’t make a sound

Holding on to your mask Grasping at your pain Building stories from your past With only yourself to blame I look out my window What do I see? I see these opportunities They’re waiting and Screaming out for me Fear’s been creeping at my doorstep For 24 long years But I won’t let him rule me Despite these truth tellin’ tears I look out my window What do I see? I see these opportunities They’re waiting and Screaming out for me Ooo ooo ooo Let it out Breathe it in And release… Ooo ooo ooo

Pick up your feet and start running Feel what it's like To leave your worries behind Forget what it means to go home Get lost in the forest For a little while I know she broke your heart And flawed your soul But through the trees Sunlight's found a home Pick up your feet and start running Let the warm Summer breeze Flow right through your veins Forget what it means to be lonely But stand alone With strength and pride and grace It's a waste of time Waiting on love So love yourself This should be enough Don't sell your soul tonight Please don't let your soul's light die Don't sell your soul tonight Please don't let your soul's light die Pick up your feet and start running Pick up your feet and start running Pick up your feet and start running

By the Fire 05:51
Well I’m sitting Cross legged By the fire And you’re flying From east to west And you’re tired I’m cooking tomatoes On the gas stove, real slow Hoping darling You’ll be coming home The candles They’re burning By my bedside Illuminating My heart’s desire For you I’m penning this song As the night sky turns on Watching time float by with the sun Hoping darling You’ll be coming home Well it was Summer And I was standing By the river I called my brother He flew down south To visit It was meant To be you But my love for you Fell through I often think Of our nights Under the moon Hoping darling You’ll be coming Oh but darling Are you coming Darling You’re not coming home
