Track Name: The Rock by GP Hall & Sue Munns
The Rock Words by Sue Munns

Once a wall 40ft high
cracked with the strain
of lives coming by and
leaning, leaning, leaning

And the moon comes up then fades away
and the tide comes in on another day

Once a tree 100ft high
twisted, tumbled, fell out of sight
of those who were
leaning, leaning, leaning

And the moon comes up then fades away
and the tide comes in on another day

Once a mountain 8000ft high
shot through with fire 'til molten inside
from lands that were
leaning, leaning, leaning

And the moon comes up then fades away
and the tide comes in on another day

Once a man 6ft high
took on the world, the moon and the sky
shining through their
leaning, leaning, leaning

And the moon comes up then fades away
and the tide comes in on another day
Track Name: She Vanished
My Love she vanished she never did return
Although I searched for her she is gone now for good

I searched every highway long into the night
Showed pictures of her face & nailed them against the tree

I sailed to the Americas though my hunt it was in vein
On my last day to return again I did find out my fate

She drowned in the harbour while still carrying her child
Deserted by her lover the shame it could not wait

I returned to 3 children to the farm that we once toiled
With a heart still heavy the seasons eased my pain

Lonely years slipped by me and my soul it slowly healed
Now fate brings me closer to another lovely maid.

My love she vanished she never did return
Although I searched for her she is gone now for good
Track Name: Jewel (made of stars) For Roy R-I-P
Made of Stars guitar tuning D A D F# A D

I can climb mountains
I can swim rivers
I can make a journey to the stars
I can raft rapids
I can sail oceans
I can build castles on hope

But that’s nothing compared to you
You are a jewel that’s made of stars

I can sing sorrow
I can find joy
I can bring a sense of calm
I can seek forgiveness
I can ask for glory
I can make redemption my Goal

But that’s nothing compared to you
You are a jewel that’s made of stars

I can make fire
I can run in valleys
I can bring you hands to hold
I can share my troubles
I can ease my pain
I can recall memories way back

But that’s nothing compared to you
You are a jewel that’s made of stars.

If I could turn back time
I know it can’t be done
I would not change one thing.
I could not have un-done
The memory of my regrets
Forgiveness is my release

But that’s nothing compared to you
You are a jewel that’s made of stars

But that’s nothing compared to you
You are a jewel that’s made of stars
Made…. Of….. stars
Track Name: Industry (bleeding inwardly)
Industry Is bleeding inwardly in the rivers in the sea
Industry is bleeding you and me….Bleeding inwardly

Industry is bleeding inwardly…in the mountains…in the lakes
Industry is bleeding inwardly..

In the valleys by the shore…soon come knocking at your door
Industry is bleeding inwardly…Industry…is…Bleeding…You & Me…industry is bleeding you & me…

Don’t go picking brambles don’t go fishing no more
Won’t be long for death is knocking…at your door

Industry is bleeding you…and me…and me
Ha Ha mind your children don’t go… picking… blackberries
Or any strange fruit.

Industry is bleeding…you…and me…and me
Burning… you and me…I’m bleeding…ha…ha

Don’t go for walks…walks…by the shore…by the shore
Guilty…Guilty…Emergency….
Track Name: Mystical Dream
The morning sun has woken and the night stars have long gone,
it was a warm summer day, and i like it that way.
stepped out into the sunshine sat down to warm my face,,
and the morning birds flew past me in a warm & soft embrace.

listen to the bees in the flowers & the rob,ins having fun,
watched the poppies swaying in the field shinning brightl red in the sun.
I stood up on my 2 feet thought i'd walk down a country lane
set off walking down that lonely path, used a beach stick as a cane.
,,
And then the mist rolled off the mountain seemed to smother me it seemed
then i tripped and fell and suddenly I woke up; ....it was all a dream
Track Name: Waiting Room
Here I am, in the waiting room,
Hanging around just waiting for you.

Here I am, on the floor again,
Here I go closing doors again.

Chorus
I’m so tired of waiting, in the waiting room.

Waiting for who, who they might not show.
Here I go going round again.

Chorus
I’m so tired, tired of hanging around.

I just know, that it’s bringing me down,
I’m so tired of just sitting around.

Chorus
I’m so tired, tired of the waiting room.

Wait over here, wait over there
Can’t they see I am in despair?
Excuse me please; please wait just a mo,
It’s this and that, but lets take it slow.

Chorus
I’m sick and tired, of waiting in the waiting room.
Track Name: Daytime Nightime
It's been a long long time since i held you in my arms,
felt your body near me and the warmth of all your charms.
I got this aching feeling it makes my blood run cold,
put your arms around me warm me with your hold.

I miss you more in the day time,
I miss you more in the night time.

it's been a long long time to be without your love
I'm fading like a flower with no water from above
so hold me in your arms and talk sweet talk to me
I'm loosing self control I love you can't you see

I miss you more in the day time,
I miss you more in the night time

I miss your sweet hot breath and the softness of your skin,.
the crazy things we did I know that we can still win
the love that we both need and the hopes that we both shared,
these feelings that become impossible to bear.

I miss you more in the day time,
I miss you more in the night time
I miss you more in the daytime night time
Track Name: Rosalita
Rosalita with your smile will you sit and talk a while
under the shade of a big oak tree.
I will gaze into your eyes we can while away the hours
I will tell you things you want to hear.

How sweet you are to me
your fragrance is sweet perfume.
I am in perfect bliss
as I lie here in your arms.

I have travelled many lands seen the wisdom seen the wisdom in there hands of all those who know a beauty so rare.

I am melting in your eyes, I am bathing in your sighs,
with your seet charms and the sound of your voice.

How sweet and so devine
I drink from your cup of wine
I kiss your sweet red lips
I am in heaven at last

I have travelled many lands seen the wisdom seen the wisdom in there hands of all those who know a beauty so rare.

Rosalita with your smile will you sit and talk a while
under the shade of a big oak tree.
Track Name: Train Song (one foggy morning)
One foggy Morning down cobbled streets i started yawning when down to the station and onto the train silver whistles piercing ther rain.

I looked from my window I saw crying eyes that had no stories
even my reflection waved goodbye no body came to say goodby.

I am leaving

The train was mooving through the countries green suroundings over the rivers and into the hills, round the corners, and into the fields

Im leaving.
Track Name: Tender Mercies
I still miss you most times in the night
When I wrap my arms around myself
And put out the light.

I still miss you & I still care
I cannot let you go
because to me you still seem here

When I close my eyes can’t stop thinking of the past
I know I have to let you go
but the pain seems to vast
chorus

My friends sometimes worry
They see the pain in my soul
There is a haven in my solitude
They know I will pull through.

I guess it takes time for the hurt to heal
And the loss of the one you love
somedays I don’t feel

Chorus

That it will it ever stop, will it ever stop hurting
Will I ever stop this train, that’s running down the track
To a destination of pain
I still I miss you I can’t help it and that’s alright
Track Name: Peggy O'
I'm sailing for the americas maybe to Spain
When i make all my money there
then i will return to your arms Peggy O'

Will you write to me my love
a letter every day
I will write to you my love
when its time to say i will return

I hear the drums a beating now
from some foreign field
I lay badly wounded now
by the enemy bayonet in my side

Don't you wait for me my love
I wont be comming home
my life it is fading now
I see you face in the clouds pretty PeggyO'

They buried him in a foreign land
with no mark on his grave
his ghost it still haunts that place
to find his way back home to the arms of his one true love

Peggy she cried out loud oh no no no it can't be true
please dont leave me all alone
I'd be lost without you your my one true love

Peggy grew both old and grey
lonely years left there mark
when her days were finally done
She rested in the arms of her one true love

I'm sailing to the america's maybe to Spain
Track Name: Silent Clocks
Got out of bed, walked down the hall
See your shadow as you closed the door.
Can’t be together, life pulled us apart
I hear ticking by a silent clock.

It’s not easy for you, with a life stood still.
We’ll be together some day,
Our hearts will meet, we shall not be torn.

It’s a waiting game… it’s not fair,
Love is an everlasting flame.
We must be brave, we can be strong,
Making Sorrow much easier to bear.

It’s not easy for you, with a live stood still.
We will be together some day,
Our hearts will meet, we shall not be torn.

You’re everything I need, everything I want,
I’m drifting into timeless space.
You are my blood, my very soul,
Two hearts in everlasting love.
Track Name: I will be with you
I will be with you forever and a day
I will be with you come what may
I can’t stop loving you
Couldn’t if I tried
I will be with you
Until the heavens fall from the sky

You will never be lonely
I’m always in your heart
Till the stars stop shining
We will never grow apart
I can’t stop loving you
Because we are one
I will be with you
Until the sky is lit up by the sun

I will be with you
There’s nothing to fear
I will guide you from your star to here
I won’t stop loving you
Should all the seas run dry
I will be with you
Always and forever until I die

I will catch you if you should ever fall
If I should lose you your name I would call
And I will be with you when my day is done
I will be with you as we head out for the sun
I will be with you forever and all time
I will be with you
I will be yours and you will be mine
Track Name: Silver Coin (original version)
Now that i'm older i know i'm not old enough to know,
What it is to be lonesome what it is to be without a home.
but I'v some friends nearby who love me rain or shine don't ask me why there younger eyes are so much older eyes than mine.

Well I thought i was well read didn't need to ask her for a lead,
when i asked what her eyes said i had nothing more to need.
nothing more to say no nothing more to do but throw all my words away, on someone who needs me can't find a women like you.,

I ran all the way home just to be the first to see the rising star there were others before me the sound of beauty travels far.
I here it loud and clear and it rings like a silver coin ,thrown down on stones ,though i'm lost in a crowd, i just know she's around me some how
Track Name: Je sais que tu es mienne
Je sais que tu es mienne
Tu es avec moi tout le temps
Me rendant triste d'amour
Je ne sais quoi faire
Je me sens perdue

Je ne peux avoir un parfait début
Mais je sais que c'est bien
Dis-moi aussi que tu m'aimes
Et je te dirai un mot, c'est bien
Même que tu es triste tout d'un coup

Je ne sais quoi faire
Et je te dirai un mot
Même s'il n'y a pas de lendemain
Et je ressens ton nom
Tout ce que j'ai su entendre

Il y a toujours le temps
De faire les choses que l'on ferai
Par toujours les chemins de la vie
Et je sais que c'est bien
Quand nous sommes dans la nuit
Et je te dirai un mot

Même s'il n'y a pas de lendemain
Et je ressens ton nom
Tout ce que j'ai su entendre
Il y a toujours le temps
De faire les choses que l'on ferai

Par toujours les chemins de la vie
Et je sais que ça va
Quand je t'entends dire
Je ne sais quoi faire
Quand tu dis 'Je t'aime'
Mais tu me rends joyeuse
Quand nous sommes dans la nuit
Track Name: The House Within
From the very first time i gazed into your eyes I knew,
my head did spin and it took me by surprize.
and the very first time i felt your tender touch,
I knew, yes i knew.
My heart skipped a beat, i knew that you were the one,
the only one, for me.

And the first time our lips were joined by a kiss I felt,
My legs went to jelly, my spirit was as light as mist.
and your hair brushed my cheek, my body felt weak at the knees,
I fell down at your feet.

The stars at night are burning bright just for me, just for me, just for me.

From the very first time i gazed into your eyes I knew,
my head did spin it took me by surprize.

The the first time our lips were joined by a kiss I felt,
My legs went to jelly, my spirit was as light as mist.
and your hair brushed my cheek, my body felt weak at the knees,
I fell down at your feet.

The stars at night are burning bright just for me, just for me, just for me.

I found a house for the heart within, it beats and shines my soul within.
Track Name: The Storm
I will carry you, through the storm
if you let me hold you I'll keep you warm.

we'll stand together, under a star lit night
shoulder to shoulder we won't give up the fight.

Don't you worry, my little one
i'll be with you when day is done

chorus
Sometimes it's hard to reason why,
nothing makes sense but you must try.

I have to go now, I hear the call
you can stand now both strong and tall

Pick up the pieces, but don’t look back
our troubles are lighter on that track

Chorus
Sometimes it's hard to reason why,
nothing makes sense but you must try.

Wherever you may be, i'll be there
You will find me everywhere
