Track Name: Lessons
One day I met an owl, he was drawn in by the wind, he sat down with his cane and pipe, and he started to begin. Now the story that he told, with me holding my head, well it seemed to me how could it be my own, and then he said.

Time, You got plenty of time. Time, Why don't you take some time. Time, We all need some time.

Well the next thing that I knew, I was in an acacia tree, 'cause the wind came through, and I just knew there was fire on the leaves, so I panicked for a while, 'cause it burnt my skin and hair, I was feeling raw, until I saw a new life in the air, and I said.

Time, You got plenty of time. Time, Why don't you take some time. Time, We all need some time.

Well the owl looked up and sighed, you've got a kind, kind heart. You can't help but to feel down, 'cause you just love too much, and with that the wind did change, and my owl flew out of sight, but since then when I forget, theres always something in the corner of my eye.
Track Name: Favourite Shade
I'm not sure enough to make my next move, I'm waiting for a sign to come, give my lonely soul to the obstructed moon, before I clean the room.
I want to see myself in my favourite shade, and show I'm whole to everyone, I think I found my thoughts, but now I'm posting haste. Right or wrong, right or wrong.

I cling to my box, lost and alone, wanna go home.

I wanna change but no one ever does, I wanna fly so high tonight, I wanna change but no one ever does, I wanna fly so high tonight.

I've come a long, long way, did I forget my shoes? and time will show you everything, are we the patient ones who were born to loose?

Is that a bad thing? Is that a bad thing? Is that a bad thing.

And even if it takes all night you'll see, I'm free.
And even if it takes all night you'll see, I'm free.
And even if it takes all night you'll see, I'm free.
And even if it takes all night you'll see, I'm free.
Track Name: Fighting With Yourself
Feel the way, through these bright lights, lost in a daze, it seems, time's gone on strike. Climb inside, inside my mind, falling through the cracks, leave my body behind.

And you know, that life's gone so fast, gone so fast.
And you know, that it doesn't matter in the end oh.
You can fall, but it doesn't force your luck to turn around,
And you could feel much better if you didn't keep on fighting with yourself.

I am flying, from this night, catch my breath and I, might change my side, Rub my eyes, and I alright, is this a daydream am, am I still alive?

And you know, that life's gone so fast, gone so fast.
And you know, that it doesn't matter in the end oh.
You can fall, but it doesn't force your luck to turn around,
And you could feel much better if you didn't keep on fighting with yourself.
Track Name: Watch Yourself Grow Old
You've got some wisdom to impart, something poetically sad, And you heart, speaking from your head.
If you don't let life unfold, you'll watch yourself grow old.

You get stuck in a life you did not choose, I need a cure to neutralise these blues, you say you wanna start something new, the lies you told yourself won't comfort you.
If you don't let life unfold, you'll watch yourself grow old.
If you don't let life unfold, you'll watch yourself grow old.
Track Name: Another Place
Sit and watch behind my eyes, is it wrong to want to run away tonight? Please give me courage, give me something I can't fight, 'cause I think I might be loosing it this time.

So you'll wait, so you'll wait.
Don't you wait for me, 'cause you just got blind faith.
So you'll wait, so you'll wait,
Don't you wait for me, 'cause there's some things, ideas must have come from another place.

I think about the things in past, is it wrong for me to think of things like that? Give me a voice I'll sing the words of which I lack, to put a stop to my feelings coming in last.

So you'll wait, so you'll wait.
Don't you wait for me, 'cause you just got blind faith.
So you'll wait, so you'll wait,
Don't you wait for me, 'cause there's some things, ideas must have come from another place.
