Track Name: Love Comes Around the Corner
He's in love with a phantom who lives over the hill
Down the road to his better days
And when he catches glimpses, as oft times he will
It's amazing how the feeling stays
And he lies awake and he ponders
And he wonders, and he waits
And his life goes rushing onward
on a path to it's too late

She's in love with a dreamer who's long lost at sea
She knows he's never coming home
But she walks to the seaside and stands in the lee
Casts her loving out across the foam
And the stars shine out their wonder
as the dawn begins to break
And the seas roll out their thunder
hissing silence in their wake

But love comes around the corner
Hits you right between the eyes
Love comes around the corner
Surprise, surprise, surprise
Track Name: Island Nights
These island nights will take us away
Lovers embrace and dance until day breaks
In the moonlight we sway to the beat of the sea
At midnight we play with the soft ocean breeze

These island nights give way to the light
On the tide in the dawn we will be gone
A young sailor boy who dreamed of conquering Troy
But all that I’ve learned, made me long to return
To these island nights

These island nights, my love in my arms
My children asleep, safe from all harm
Now the candle burns down, the wine brings the dreams
I'm an old sailor man, I will die free

These island nights were my guiding light
Back to my homeland shore with treasure in store
Out of fable and rhyme
On the wild waves of time
Returning to stay with these island nights
Whoaaaaaaa
These island nights give way to the light
On the tide in the dawn we will be gone
That young sailor boy who dreamed of conquering Troy
He's home to stay with these island nights
Track Name: I Wonder
I wonder what happens if I push this button here
I wonder what we will think about this in a year
I bet the answer ain't as clear as you might think
I bet the time is gonna blow by in a blink
I wonder who wants to get up on the floor and dance
I wonder why anybody wouldn't take a chance

I wonder when I'm a-gonna figure this all out
I wonder just how to turn a whisper to a shout
I bet we get ourselves together with a spark
I bet we’re gonna turn the light on in the dark
I wonder how people know when people tell a lie
I wonder if that was what I think was going by

I wonder when I'm walking and I'm talking I say
I wonder if the wonder ever goes away

I wonder at all this twitter patter on the net
I wonder is this how we remember to forget
I bet the fat is gonna drain into the dirt
I bet the farm that this is really gonna hurt
I wonder from time to time if we can get it right
I wonder when I am lying sleepless in the night

I bet Ma Nature works her magic on the sly
I bet that all of us are gonna learn to fly
I wonder 'bout all that traffic up there overhead
I wonder if anybody heard what I just said

I wonder, I wonder
Track Name: You Know Me Better Than That
You knew before you opened the door
Somehow you knew there'd be no one
Searched upstairs / Nobody there
Sat down hard in your easy chair

I guess you thought I'd just lie down and take it
Sad that you saw me like that
I think you thought, I'd never make it
Now you know me better than that

Silence grew between me and you
Broken only by talk about leavin'
Wherever you want to be / I set you free
I've known for a while that it isn't with me

It's hard to believe we were ever in love when I think of you now
You seemed to use my best intentions against me somehow

I guess you thought I'd just lie down and take it
Sad that you saw me like that
I think you thought I'd never make it
Now you know me better than that

I guess you thought I'd just lie down and take it
Sad that you saw me like that
I think you thought I'd never make it
Now you know me better than that
You know me better now
You know me better
Track Name: Without You
I don’t want to hang around
Any place you can’t be found
You help me make it through the days
When I feel blue

I can face the dark of night
Knowing you’ll be by my side
I’m not afraid to say the words
“What would I do”
Without you

As the years keep drifting by
Your giving heart just makes things right
You make our world a better place
through all you do

We’ve had ups and we’ve (had) downs
But through it all you stuck around
You keep our love on solid ground
I’d fall through
Without You

Now I can see
You'll always be the one for me
I’ll never let you go
You give me strength
A reason to believe I want to let you know
I’d never make it through
Without You

I don’t want to hang around
Any place you can’t be found
You help me make it through the days
When I feel blue

I can face the dark of night
Knowing you’ll be by my side
I’m not afraid to say the words
“What would I do”
Without you
Without you
Without you
Track Name: Been A Long Time
Thought I saw you just the other day
You Looked right through me then you looked away
So many times we came so close to getting it right
It's Been a long time until tonight

So I called your telephone
Left a voicemail then I left it alone
You had to say hello and are you doing alright
It's Been a long time until tonight

Been a long time and I know that's true
Been a long time for me and you
Been a long time but it ain't the thing to do
Baby I gotta go and so do you

Quarter moon playing truth or dare
Have to meet you about half way there
I Fully agree that we divide the dark and the light
It's Been a long time until tonight

Been a long time and I know that's true
Been a long time for me and you
Been a long time but it ain't the thing to do
Baby I gotta go and so do you

I wouldn't mind a different place and different time
I would be blind not to see
I would suggest that we've been put to the test
Flying colours fade to black indeed

Thought I saw you just the other day
You Looked right through me then you looked away
So many times we came so close to getting it right
It's Been a long time until tonight

Been a long time and I know that's true
Been a long time for me and you
Been a long time but it ain't the thing to do
Been a long time and I know that's true
Been a long time for me and you
Been a long time so I tell you what we'll do
Baby I gotta go and so do you
Baby I gotta go and so do you
Baby I gotta go and so do you
