Track Name: Wild Rose
Sunrise in the morning
Birds singing on every tree
A greeting and a warning
The song that they're singing is “Be free!”

Young rambler on the roadside
All around the world he goes
Never knowing what he will find in his quest for the great unknown

Wild rose in the forest
Wild rose on the moor
Dawn mist on the mountain
Combers crashing on the shore

We rejoin our hero as he wanders from door to door
A heart full of legend
Dreams of love on a foreign shore

Wild rose in the forest
Wild rose on the moor
Dawn mist on the mountain
Combers crashing on the ….

Wild rose in the forest
Wild rose on the moor
Dawn mist on the mountain
Combers crashing on the shore
Track Name: A Turn of the Wheel
Alone and lost out on the edge of the wheel and it's turning
Check out the bridges to the way you used to feel and they're burning
Sinking down and rising
Lost in compromising

The bottom drops out and you fall into the space
Left by the things that you were losing while you tried to save face

Another turn of the wheel's gone round leaving something else to rise above
One more emotional deal's gone down
Another trial for the power of love

"I never meant for it to be like this"
We've all heard the story
Just can't remember all the reasons why you're saying that you're sorry
Rational but mindless
Self-inflicted blindness
Never realizing it might just be too late
For all the people you were using cause you couldn't think straight.

Another turn of the wheel's gone round leaving something else to rise above
One more emotional deal's gone down
Another trial for the power of love

Another turn of the wheel's gone round leaving something else to rise above
One more emotional deal's gone down
Another trial for the power of love

(Geoff Panting)
Track Name: Mountainside
When I left home it seems so long ago
Just where I travelled sometimes I don’t know
Years full of images fading away
Searching, yearning to get back one day

High as a mountainside
High as a mountainside

Then came a day the ship ran aground
I felt my heart beat and the world spin around
Now when I looked I could just see the end of the road and the children were playing “lets pretend”
I was
High as a mountainside
High as a mountainside

Wings of a raven high over me
Making me think on the meaning of free
Still I’m a man not a bird in the sky
These days when I’m happy I’ve stopped asking why

High as a mountainside
High as a mountainside

(Dave Panting)
Track Name: Colleen
Ring-down on a barstool
Death of a lonely night
Front door blows open
In walks a welcome sight

Colleen! Where ya been?
Colleen! Where ya been?

It's good to see you
It's been too long a time
I heard that you were uptown commitin' yourself a crime
Well if you're a fallen angel you still look good to me
Let us raise a glass now to future memories

Colleen! Where ya been?
Colleen! Where ya been?
Colleen! Where ya been?
Colleen! Where ya been?

It's good to see you
It's been too long a time
I heard that you were uptown commitin' yourself a crime
Well if you're a fallen angel you still look good to me
Let us raise a glass now to future memories

Colleen! Where ya been?
Colleen! Where ya been?
Colleen! Where ya been?
Colleen! Where ya been?

(Dave Panting)
Track Name: Shaken Up
You get to feeling shaken up with the way your time gets taken up
Yeah and every time you’re wakin’ up
Something else has gone wrong
You get hung up about the telephone and then you try to make like your not home
Worrying about the seed you’ve sown
Well they’ve grow tall and strong

In between the deceiving we’d like to keep on believing
That we’re all living not just breathing

Pressure to the left and right
Public opinion changes overnight
Enough to make you loose your appetite or your sense of well being
And you can read between the lines each day about how some poor suckers gotta pay
For the paving of a better way
Well believing is seeing

In between the deceiving we’d like to keep on believing
That we’re all living not just breathing

(Dave Panting)
Track Name: Ghost of Love
t's time for the loner to pay his dues
It's time for the guitar to play the blues
You've been running now you got no choice but to face what you've been afraid of
It's time to be haunted by the ghost of love

The leaves are falling through my reverie
They waltz like fire on the autumn breeze
I'm walking alone
The wind in the trees up above
Crying with the voice of the ghost of love

The leaves are falling through my reverie
They waltz like fire on the autumn breeze
I'm walking alone
The wind in the trees up above
Crying with the voice of the ghost of love

It's time for the loner to pay his dues
It's time for the guitar to play the blues
You've been running now you got no choice but to face what you've been afraid of
It's time to be haunted by the ghost of love
