LYRICS Where have all the flowers gone The fields where we once played The grass is green in photographs And now it’s washed away Sands fall through the hourglass Time and tide pass by A butterfly hangs overhead Then crashes from the sky Look what we’re done You will burn in our sun You will eat what we breed You will choke where we breathe You will fight when we rest You will die from our thefts You will drink from our waste We will die in disgrace Everblue this we give to you Look the other way Just for one more day We just look the other way Sorry to betray We just look the other way Spend and let you pay We just look the other way Nothing more to say We just look the other way Just for one more day We just look the other way Sorry to betray We just look the other way Kiss your ass and pray We just look the other way Nothing more to say Look the other way Just for one more day We just look the other way Nothing more to say

LYRICS There’s a house where I once played On a hill so far away And the walls on which I climbed seem much smaller now The memories slowly fade Of the childhood games I played I sit and watch my son and daughters growing taller day by day Where are they now? These memories As I grow older they fade away There’s a school where I once learned That the big boys often burned And some friends that I knew then Would leave for distant lands and not return And in my childhood dreams The world was smaller than it seemed The truth that comes to pass is that reality is here to last Where are they now? My dreams are memories As I grow older they fade away.

LYRICS You take what you can find You know the place, the time You bend the rules that bind You dance to free your mind You give what you can’t take You won’t admit mistakes You want what you don’t have You smile but you can’t laugh Why do we run when there’s nowhere to hide? Why don’t we cry when a small child has died? Why don’t we hurt when the pains far away? Why can’t we hear what our souls have to say? You play to selfish rules You joke and play the fool You drift your life away You need to have your say You’re just a stubborn man You think you have a plan You cannot tell what’s real You can touch, but don’t feel Why do we run when there’s nowhere to hide? Why don’t we cry when a small child has died? Why don’t we hurt when the pains far away? Why can’t we hear what our souls have to say? Say, say, say You learn the golden rule You were not shown at school You face your inner fears You greet your twilight years You have some time to think You stand upon your brink You hear your angels sing You didn’t change a thing Say you got it wrong But you’re not the only one Why do we run when there’s nowhere to hide? Why don’t we cry when a small child has died? Why don’t we hurt when the pains far away? Why can’t we hear what our souls have to say? What’s ya soul gonna say?

LYRICS I don’t know what comes across me every day I change my mind like it’s a dirty shirt I’m fingers and thumbs at holding on to all I have They fall and lie discarded in the dirt With ease you break my fragile peace of mind I’m scared to dream, I’m all alone The sudden pain of losing all I know I’m scared to dream, I hear me scream The constant fear, not knowing what is best to do? The never answered questions, I keep asking you Familiar faces and those places where I go I act so bored of everyone and everything I know. With ease you break my fragile peace of mind I’m scared to dream, scared to dream The sudden pain of losing all the things I know I’m scared to dream Scared to dream

LYRICS I hear your voice on the answer phone I said I’d call on my way home I hope you’re in when I get there To hold you close To show I care Hold you, hold you in my arms Hold me, hold me in your arms Hold you, want you, hold you in my arms Hold me, want me, take me in your arms

LYRICS Big cars drive 10 lanes wide Air con or die At 55 Pimped up with pride Skin hides inside Kick down to drive At 55 Sitting in my box there’s 18 kind of locks Designed to set me free Safe within my shell the radio talks to me Alone no one can see I want to drift away Far from this stinking road No-one can hear me pray I want to shed this load I drive my car It takes me near or far Faster than you Red, amber, green… into the blue

LYRICS Despite ourselves we cannot win No magic cream for fragile skin When the world decides you’ve had your time Prepare yourself to get in line Hold on to what you’ve got ‘cos it can all go tomorrow Hold on to every one you need Hold on Things can change In spite of this we don’t give in From sudden ends the new begins When the world decides To play its hand Prepare yourself Forget your plans Hold on to what you’ve got ‘cos it can all go tomorrow Hold on to every one you need Hold on Things can change

LYRICS “Hello how ya doing?” I know what you’re going to say. “I’m fine, could be better. Pull up a chair let’s talk about the weather” I know how you’re feeling, I don’t need the words to see inside the pain behind your pride, you always try to hide. When you’re feeling down I’ll be around, I’ll always be beside you. If you could read my mind you will find a love that’s there just for you. “Hello, how’s it going? I’ve brought you some cards to wish you well, from those you know. “Pull up a chair, let’s talk like we’ve got nowhere to go”. And when you’re sleeping, please know the hearts you hold within your dreams always understand more than it first seems. When you’re feeling down, we’ll be around, we’re always there beside you. When you’re feeling fine, we’ll keep in mind the times we had without you. “So long, must be going”. If I could I’d want to stay and sit here by your side, and make this go away. “See you tomorrow”. Same time, same place, just a different day when we will talk around the things we do not say
