Track Name: Gently I
I'm better off alone,
I know it,
This is a one man mission.
I want to give you all when I'm giving
but then i've got nothing more.
I know it comes around,
Oh am I the only one who's tired of it coming around?
Probably never let you know
but I think I hold on for fear of letting you down.

Every time I try to know it
feels like there's something missing.
I cannot sleep it off
But I can hide it
By sleeping in.
No need to see the day,
It's only long and crowded,
Keep it away,
Don't want to know about it.

I'm gonna take my time
To say it
Cos' I'm not sure what I'm saying.
Gonna take my words
and plant them
They can talk when they're tall trees swaying.
Let it take control,
We're only human
This world is all consuming.

Have I ever really questioned
Why I wanted
Everything I have
That surrounds me,
memory haunted?
And everything I lack,
How could I hold so strong?
Carry on my back,
all of these rights and wrongs?

I do not want to hurt you.
I do not want to numb you.
I do not wish to change you.
You are who
Ever you are.
Ever this day.
Ever this dream walk
Ever your way.
Track Name: Gently II
Sweet stranger.
Gently sweet stranger,
Wherever you go.

Sweet traveller,
Wind at your back.
Safely sweet traveller,
as you roll down the track.

Sweet piano,
Play in his head.
Softly, sweet piano
Lay him down to the bed.
Track Name: Gently III
It's a cold cold wind
You don't have to be so kind
You don't have to understand
It won't hold me
I am blowing away.

It's a blinding rain
I wish you didn't feel so sure
The water batters at the door
And I am running clearer
Every day.

It's a storm
I can't hold this all together
I love you and you love me
Still I think I'd rather be.

And as the cloud rolls in
I beg you not to deny it
Won't you let me go.
Track Name: Jen's Song
What did I do
To deserve you?
How did I land
with you on these sands?
Shall we go swim in the Indian sea?

How do I explain,
it's worse than a dream.
I find myself tied
with you by my side.
Shall we go beg on a merciless street,
And get fed more than we could ever eat.

I think I know what you are.
You're the closest I will get to a star.
I hope your mother knows,
I'd be proud if I gave birth to one of those.

Where are we now?
Don't shake your head.
This is your life
Though it feels like you're dead
when you are stood on the top of the world.

Oh to be
A swallow with thee,
Oh to be wolves
Wild and free.
Shall we dance where the sun never sets?
Who needs to know which way is west.
When I will always know which way is best.

I think I knows what you is.
You're the closest I will get to an Angel.
i hope your father knows
I'd be proud if I conceived of those.
