Lyrics

 

My my pretty darling
Don't leave me here alone
Don't leave me wondering
If you're ever coming home
I won't get in your way
I won't make a sound
I just wanna be with you
And have a good look around

My my pretty darling
Don't leave me here like this
With nothing but a memory
Of your sweet candy kiss
I'll go anywhere
Let's get lost and found
I just wanna be with you
And have a good look around

My eyes are open
So many beautiful things to see
You know things only appear like that
When you're here with me

My my pretty darling
Let me come along for the ride
You just can't go wrong
With me here by your side
I won't be no trouble
When we go to town
I just wanna be with you
And have a good look around

My eyes are open
So many beautiful things to see
You know things only appear like that
When you're here with me

My my pretty darling
Don't leave me here alone
Don't leave me wondering
If you're ever coming home
I won't get in your way
I won't make a sound
And I won't be no trouble
When we go to town

I just wanna be with you
And have a good look around
I just wanna be with you

Lyrics

Sweet Summer Wine

I was down in the dirt
Buried out of sight
With only one place to go
Back up towards the light
And as I make my way
Through cracked and broken ground
Called up and on and on
By a beautiful sound

I can hear her singing
Through the grapevine
All you need is a lot of love
And a little time
Just watch me turn water
Into sweet summer wine
Watch me turn
Water into wine

You've got to be tough
Got to be strong
And if you find yourself here
It's where you belong
You could go back
To the place from which you came
But it's just too late now
You will never be the same

Chorus:
You can her singing
Through the grapevine… etc

There are things that I've seen
Caught in the wheels of the machine
I've got a story to tell
Turns out you've got one as well

Chorus:
We can hear her singing
Through the grapevine
All you need is a lot of love
And a little time
Just watch us turn water
Into sweet summer wine
All we need is a lot of love
And a little time
Just watch us turn this water
Into sweet summer wine
Watch us turn this water
Just watch us turn this water
Watch us turn this water into wine

Lyrics

Closer To Blue Than Green

It was a simple life
We lived without a care
I could never tell you then
And now it's neither here nor there
 
It’s neither here nor there
It's somewhere between
A shade or two
Closer to blue than green
 
Closer to blue than green
Closer to blue than green
It’s a shade or two
Closer to blue than green
 
I still remember you there
Drenched in warm sunlight
Winter days got shorter here
And darker than the night
 
Darker than the night
Short, cold and mean
Another shade or two
Closer to blue than green
 
Closer to blue than green
Closer to blue than green
Another shade or two
Closer to blue than green
 
There's a kind of ancient beat
That keeps me in this line
I can see the broken lights
All flashing in time
 
All flashing in time
And now I know what they mean
They are
Closer to blue than green

Lyrics

 Indian Ocean Blue

Let’s just sail away on this ship
Wave goodbye to all we know and not make sense of it
Dance on the deck and twirl around in the dark
And listen to the ship bell ringin’ in time to a new beat in your heart

Say goodbye my love, say farewell, au revoir and adieu
Bound for Indian Ocean Blue

Where nothing that you do could ever be a mistake
We thought it was a dream but it turns out we were very much awake
In the middle of a storm with all hands up on deck
How can you know where you’re going if you haven’t been there yet

Say goodbye my love, say farewell, au revoir and adieu
Bound for Indian Ocean Blue
Yes, it's time now my love to say goodbye, fare thee well and adieu
Bound for Indian Ocean Blue
 
For a while, for a while
Let it all fall apart for a while
You might find some pieces that don't fit
And for a while, follow your heart for a while
You'll only get to know where it's going if you stay with it
You get to know where it's going if you stay with it

Chorus

You only get to know where it's going if you stay with it
You get to know where it's going if you stay with it

Lyrics

Let Yourself In

You hold the key to the door of my heart
You’re welcome to let yourself in
Ever passing this way
And need somewhere to stay
You’re welcome to let yourself in

A few things have changed since last you were here
I don’t know where to begin
So take in the view
Of these grey skies and blue
You’re welcome to let yourself in

We found ourselves and time flies away with what we became
We lose ourselves and never stay the same
May you never stay the same

I moved here alone beside this great lake
Watch the long winter ice getting thin
Now the wildflowers grow
Like there’s no tomorrow
You’re welcome to let yourself in

You hold the key to the door of my heart
You’re welcome to let yourself in
I hope my wildflower grows
Wherever she goes
You’re welcome to let yourself in

I hope my wildflower grows
Wherever she goes
You’re welcome to let yourself in

Lyrics

All The Pretty Stars

Beautiful things in this world
Have a tendency to break
And I’m still constantly amazed
By just how much you can take
So keep on walking
In those shoes
They say that when you get to win
It's not before you lose

Chorus:
We need the darkness to see the light
All the pretty stars only appear at night
We need the darkness to see the light
From all the pretty pretty stars

There's a time and a place
And it could be now
If you want to get somewhere
You've got to find your own somehow
Beyond this house
In which you dwell
There is more than you will ever know
And I guess it's just as well

Chorus:

Go and get out of this city
While the rest of the world is asleep
Go where the skies are cool and clear
And listen to the sound of your own heartbeat

Look at all the pretty pretty stars appear
All the pretty pretty stars appear
We need the darkness to see the light
All the pretty stars only appear at night
