Track Name: The Sleight Of Hand
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
I need the night’s cloak by side.
Want to swim; want to fly away,
Before the sun comes up at the break of day.

On the ground, at sea, or in the air,
Gotta go, I don’t care where.
Swift of foot; the sleight of hand,
I’m on the trail again in my one man band.

Don’t worry ‘bout me, I’ll be fine.
We’ve had our fun, we’ve had our time.
Don’t worry ‘bout me, I’ll be alright,
And you can think of me on the darkest night.

Halfway there, halfway home,
Halfway behind, halfway to go.
Wind it howls;the sky is red,
Sailors take warn: rough roads ahead.

Don’t worry ‘bout me, I’ll be fine,
We’ve had our fun, we’ve had our time.
Don’t worry ‘bout me, I’ll be alright,
And you can think of me on the darkest night.

(chorus x2)
Track Name: Sweden
Sweden sure sounds nice if it’s a reflection of you,
And as if one wasn’t enough, you come in a package of two.
I heard about you through a friend, but had to find out for myself.
If I could only hear one song for the rest of my life,
I’d never listen to anyone else.

I can’t afford to fly there,
So I’ll go there in my mind,
It’s just a matter of how and when,
‘Til then I’ll play your record again.

You’ve been around a little while,
But to me you’re pretty new.
I was surprised to learn you age,
You’ve got an older point of view.

I can’t afford to fly there,
So I’ll go there in my mind,
It’s just a matter of how and when,
‘Til then I’ll play your record again.

I saw you last night from afar,
Your voice rang out, like an endless shooting star.
I never wanted the night to end,
So I’ll just play your record again.
So I’ll just play your record again.

I can’t afford to fly there,
So I’ll go there in my mind,
It’s just a matter of how and when,
‘Til then I’ll play your record again.
Track Name: Down
Get in and get out.
It’s too cold for a girl like you.
Test the water now,
Let’s see what this boy can do.

But you dive deeper down,
I lose sight of you.
Take a deep breath,
I’m coming down too.

It’s colder here.
My body shakes.
Grab my hand,
But you slip away.

And we dive deeper down,
I lose sight of you.
Still holding my breath,
I’m coming down too.

Come with me there’s time,
Come with me there’s time (I think I see the light above)
Come with me there’s time (And we can make a)
Break for it

Got to get in and get out,
Got to get in and get out,
Gotta (x5)
Get out
Gotta (x5)
Get out
Track Name: Eye Of The Storm
I went to the eye of the storm and I called out your name.
Are you coming back my darling? Are you coming home again?
It’s been so long since I’ve held you – things haven’t been the same,
So I’m hoping that I might see you, through the snow and the rain.

It ain’t the eye of the tiger,
It ain’t the “I” before the “e”,
I’m in the eye of the storm,
And I’m hoping you’ll come blowing back to me.

I thought I heard you laughing but it was just the breeze.
Why did you go so quickly, like the leaves leave the trees?
I miss you with every raindrop – miss you more through every fog,
But it’s with every rolling thunder that I miss you most of all.

It ain’t the eye of the tiger,
It ain’t the “I” before the “e”,
I’m in the eye of the storm,
And I’m hoping you’ll come blowing back to me.

I’m watching every snowflake dance upon the wind,
I think I feel you touch me – press cold against my skin.
Not sure if it’s forever – not sure that you’ll return,
But if an ending’s what you’re teaching I hope I never learn.


It ain’t the eye of the tiger,
It ain’t the “I” before the “e”,
I’m in the eye of the storm,
And I’m hoping you’ll come blowing back to me.

(chorus x2)
Track Name: Goodnight, Goodbye
I spend too much time inside alone questioning everything.
Could I be doing more, should I be doing less, is it enough?
I consider myself one of the lucky ones to have known you so long.
Will you remember me, sometimes think of me, if I’m gone?

And if we survive,
We’ll dance through the night,
For though we’re not long for this world,
You’re still mine.

I see the crumbling of relationships around me.
Don’t want to be like them – don’t want to fight like “All in the Family”
I swear we’re different, we’re better, we’ll beat all the odds stacked against us.
But there’s that little voice that always questions me, “maybe I’m wrong”.

But if we survive,
We’ll dance through the night,
For though we’re not long for this world,
You’re still mine.

Goodnight, Goodbye (x2)
