Then, Now, Always (Dolphin Days) (Bobby Elliott/Mark Nelson)
We came down from the hills, the land of millstone grit
Escaping from tradition, where our faces didn’t fit
People smiled and said 'This ain't nothing but a phase'
But we knew different back in Dolphin days
We played the big city and wowed the big smoke
'You must be up for the cup' the plebs they used to joke

But when they heard the sound we made
There was nothing else but praise
We sure knew how to cut it back in Dolphin days

Then, now and always
Then, now, forever
Then, now, Dolphin days

You get there, you get it - so it was me all along
The Bus Stops and the Carousels - life’s milestones here in song
You leave them standing, they scream and shout
The illusion in a haze
We sure did crack the code back in Dolphin Days

Is that all there is, I was looking for more
Life is just one shot there is no encore
No, no, no

You leave them standing, they scream and shout
The illusion in a haze
We sure did crack the code back in Dolphin Days

Then, now and always
Then, now, forever

If you want it (Forever)

Go Out and get it (Forever)
It'll make you feel good all right

Then (Forever)
Now (Forever)
And Always
It'll make you feel good all right

 

If You See Her (Mark Read/Hanne Soervaag)
She was there she noticed me it all happened so suddenly
I was so caught off guard but my self fallen hard
Nothing left but an empty space she disappeared without a trace she
Stole my heart and now she’s on the run

So if you see her tell her this from me
That I will always be
A believer that she was meant for me
So why the mystery
If you see her send her back to me

I woke up she was gone tried to reach her on the phone
The reasons why she couldn’t say had no time to explain
And now I’m left with an empty space a permanent desire to see her face
So many unanswered questions in my mind

So if you see her tell her this from me
That I will always be
A believer that she was meant for me
So why the mystery
If you see her oh
If you see her oh
Send her back to me

Nothing left but an empty space she disappeared without a trace
She stole my heart and now she’s on the run

So if you see her tell her this from me
That I will always be
A believer that she was meant for me
So why the mystery

So if you see her tell her this from me
That I will always be
A believer that she was meant for me
So why the mystery

So if you see her tell her this from me
That I will always be
A believer

 

One Touch (Stefan Olsson/Fred Johansan/Mark Read)
Weightless floating inside me
Reaching for the great unknown
So take the first step and follow that feeling
Find out that life has a whole new meaning

One touch one kiss that’s all it takes for you
To reach one life one soul the way to let your feelings grow
Trust in what your heart knows
One look at first hello not knowing if you win or lose it all
Don’t be afraid of letting go trust in what your heart knows

It’s amazing once you embrace it
How it feels like the clouds have blown away
So you look straight ahead and hold on to that feeling
Fears will subside when you start to believe in

One touch one kiss that’s all it takes for you
To reach one life one soul the way to let your feelings grow
Trust in what your heart knows
One look at first hello not knowing if you win or lose it all
Don’t be afraid of letting go trust in what your heart knows

One touch is all it takes to reach another soul
Don’t wait in line for someone to find you
Trust in your heart your feelings will guide you

One touch one kiss that’s all it takes for you
To reach one life one soul the way to let your feelings grow
Trust in what your heart knows

One touch one kiss that’s all it takes for you
To reach one life one soul the way to let your feelings grow
One touch is all it takes to reach another soul


One look at first hello not knowing if you win or lose it all
Don’t be afraid of letting go trust in what your heart knows

One touch is all it takes

Trust in what your heart knows

 

Passengers (Rob Davis/Shelley Poole)
Home in my bed our sky is alive
With the things that you said they stay in my mind
And I’m glad that my heart is awakened
And now I can feel 'cos life is so precious and wasted
Its time to get real

Chorus

All of these things are never really us
Nothings for keeps we are just passengers
Baby don’t count on anything but love
That’s all we need we are just passengers

Lets write everywhere like never before
Contemplate every kiss make love in the law
Cos everything I want is right here
And finally I’m lost and now that I’ve learnt what is all about
I won’t waste a drop

Chorus

Repeat

Happiness makes me warm and safe today
Everything that I have can melt away
Everything I want is in you and finally I’m lost
And now that you’ve given me real love
I won’t waste a drop

Chorus

Repeat

 

I Would Fly (Mark Read/Graham Stack)
They say be careful what you wish for
But I’ve been wishing all my life
Cos without a dream what are we living for
I’ll fight to keep this dream alive

I’ve waited oh so long
Searching for the one

Chorus

And I would fly to the end of the world to be with you
Through the wind and the rain to be there in your arms again
I would fly and I’ve never looked back till I found you
Your spirit will be my guide yeah and with faith inside
I would fly

I’ve been waiting for a star to fall
A piece of heaven of my own
And I pray that someday you would hear my call
And help me make it through this storm

I’ve waited oh so long
Searching for the one

Chorus
Repeat

You don’t even know how many nights I held you close
But you’re not here with me you’re in my dreams and I can’t let you go

Guitar solo

 

Coming Home (Mick Mullins)
I’m getting lazy I’m shaking so thin
I’m needing money to get out of here
Going nowhere I’m doing alright
I’m in the middle of a syncopated night
I’m hanging out on the line
It’s every day at a time

He ain’t a rebel we knew he was cool
We saw the mirror a magical fool
Taking photo’s of doing all right
A celebration of a sympathetic guy
I’m hanging out on the line
It’s every day at a time

Chorus

Salamanders speak it’s a far cry from the real streets she grew
I’m coming home I’ve seen the paradise
Three times I’ve been denied
I’ve faced the devil and his toll

I’m getting hazy it seems like a flu
A cheap and nasty political move
Sitting pretty and throwing the fight
A violation of a fundamental right
I’m hanging out on the line
It’s every day at a time

I got a letter a natural c
I paid a fellow to read it to me
He’s a rover a nautical guy
A supernova in a universal sky
I’m hanging out on the line
It’s every day at a time

Chorus
Repeat

Where the hero lies there’s a memory of suicide and doom
I’m coming home I’ve seen the paradise
Three times I’ve been denied
I’ve faced the devil and his toll

Chorus
Repeat

 

I Lied (Steve Diamond/Cliff Masterson/Mark Read)
Only a game had no intention I pretended it was something wrong
I told her straight if it gets serious then I’ll go running out that door
Because I’ve been burned and bound up the hard way
I’m trying not to get too close
I made a promise to myself I swear I’ll never do it again

Chorus

I lied when I told you I’d never fall too deep let you under my skin
I lied when I said I won’t ever open my heart and let anyone in
Again you win I lied

I didn’t know that I was open to the power of your tenderness
I can’t ignore this time it’s different cos I’m finding it hard to resist
Truth is something I just can’t hide from I’m taking back the words I said
I made a promise to myself I swear I’ll never do it again

Chorus
Repeat

Truth is something I just can’t hide from taking back all the words I said
I might get burned and find out the hard way who cares I’m gonna do it again

Chorus
Repeat

 

One Way Ticket (Kevin McCarthy)
It’s been so long my eyes can’t wait to see the smile upon your face
The loving arms around me to feel the touch of her embrace
I’ve paid a price to right my crimes my heart has died a million times
Eternal one place I still belong I know tonight I will be strong

Chorus

I got a one way ticket
I’m looking for the telephone
I got to take a minute
To let her know I’m coming home

No one would care no one would cry if I should live or I should die
The sentence of a reprimand a piece of paper in my hand

Chorus
Repeat

The greatest words ever spoken she gives to me
The love is deep as the notion she gives me
I don’t know why

In time these walls will turn to dust a will of steel will surely rust
A wise man’s words won’t seem so clever you and I will be together

Chorus
Repeat

 

Too Much Too Soon (Rob Davis/Tom Nicholls)
You catch my eye you draw me closer so hard to resist
No one ever thought that it would feel like this
You’re all that I have ever dreamed of can’t believe my heart
I cannot feel so much when it’s just the start
And time will tell if here and now becomes another day
But still I’m scared that it won’t last you know how people say

Chorus

So tell me I’m a crazy to fall in love
Risking my heart for the sake of one
Giving it all away to you
Too much too soon

And nothings perfect sure feels like it when I’m in your arms
You keep me safe and I will feel no harm
Don’t have to try too hard to make it comes easily to us
Oh afraid of what we’ve got will always last

And time will tell if here and now becomes another day
But still I’m scared that it won’t last you know how people say

Chorus
Repeat

 

Unforgivable (Cliff Masterson/Mark Read)
Hey little girl what you thinking I see the tears in your eyes
I know you’re looking for the answers it’s time you realised
Tell me why you crossed the line gone too far just let it slide

Chorus

It was unforgivable the way you hurt me
And it’s unbelievable the way you lied
I just can’t believe that you would stand laughing
While I cried - It’s unforgivable

Can you even look in the mirror tell me how do you sleep at night
So don’t be asking for forgiveness that moments passed me by
You can try to explain but I won’t be changing my mind

Chorus
Repeat

Separated right from wrong holding back and moving on
Pain at night going all wrong
Turn around and walk away
All the memories fade to grey
Thought that I was weak but I’m strong

Chorus
Repeat

 

Hearts Don't Lie (Robert Hart/Cliff Masterson/Mark Read)
So tell me what’s it’s all about 
Cos I can’t seem to figure it out
I hang on to every word that you said
And you left me wondering why

I thought hearts don’t lie
I thought hearts don’t lie

You tie me down you cut me loose your kisses were a substitute
Things you couldn’t bring yourself to say
You took my love and robbed me blind and set the club to borrowed time
You shut me out and sent me on my way

You couldn’t even look me in the eye
Your own two words were such a thing disguised
You tried to hide

Chorus
Repeat

Remember when we shared a dream
Staring at the sun rising in the silver sky
Shining in our eyes
Together we can run away
Knowing that we will always end up in each others arms
You said you’d always stay
