1. Marathon

The die was cast the day we passed
The point of no return
Once through the maze & past the haze
The prize for which we yearn

This is more than a childhood passion
This is more like a dream come true

It takes time to get to avalon
That's why we're on this marathon
It takes time to get to avalon
That's why we're on this marathon

It's far too late we took the bait
We've heard the siren's call
No time to lose or pick and choose
We've got to have it all

This is more than a childhood passion
Don't try & stop me I'm coming through

Here we go, time to get started
Don't give up, you will find it soon
It'll come to you like a sonic boom
Don't be late we can crash the gate
Or we can try again on another day
We'll leave the past behind if that's the
Price we have to pay
You know we're going to find it and it's
not that far away

(Repeat Chorus)

2. How Are You?

How are ya' feelin' now?
How are ya' feelin' now?

I've got some news for you
You and your attitude
Back off, I won't go near it
Your world goes 'round & 'round
You might be feelin' down
But we don't wanna hear it
Now you've seen better days
It's written on your face
you'll just have to grin & bear it

No matter what you do
It all comes down to you
You are the one who wears it
C'mon tell me, I'm listening

How are ya' feelin' now?
Yeah, that's what it's all about
How are ya' feelin' now?
Well, don't turn your upside down

Be careful what you say
Or we'll run the other way
I don't mean tu burst your bubble
But, ya' carry a lot of weight
Haven't you heard of fate?
Or do you prefer the trouble?

(Repeat Chorus)

How do ya feel right now?
Don't turn your upside down

(Repeat Chorus)

3. Breathing Lessons

I know how to roll a seven
A nd I know I've got a place in heaven
But I'm in no hurry to go
I know all the compromises
And I've seen all the shapes & sizes
But I never go with the flow

(Bridge)

I think I need some breathing lessons
Sometimes I go too far
I know I need some breathing lessons
Show me where to start

I don't know how to change the weather
But I've seen you in lace & leather
And I keep that thought to myself
I knoe how to live on credit
Take a dive & never regret it
So much for sharing the wealth

(Repeat Bridge)

(Chorus)

Breath in, breath out
You don't know how I need you right now
Breath in - if I let go
And breath oput - Tell me you'll catch me
I know that you will show me how

I know how to lock & load it
And i know how to crack and de-code it
Call it my forunate fame
I know how to do what matters
Shake the tree & how to climb the ladder
I'm at the top of my game

(Repeat Bridge)
(Repeat Chorus)

4. Hands Up

The saints and the sinners
Are waiting for their paradise
& all the new beginners
Prepare to make the sacrifice
All the sons and the daughters
Who think that they have seen the light
Will surely walk on water
If they give it all they've got tonight

Sometimes that's all it takes
Some quiet desperation and a leap of faith

Hands up. get in line
It's time to step into the light
Hands up, wait for the sign
We're gonna raise the roof tonight

And the new solution
Is just a buck or two away
A healthy contribution
Will help to get you on your way
I can see you're nervous
But good things come to those who wait
I'll be at your service
Just don't forget to fill the plate

There's always a saving grace
So tell yourself you're goin' to a better place

Hands up. get in line
It's time to step into the light
Hands up, wait for the sign
We're gonna raise the roof tonight
Hands up, don't be shy
You're finally gonna see the light
Hands up, wait for the sign
We're gonna raise the roof tonight

(Repeat Chorus)

5. Streets of Gold (Chapter 14)

Please stop - [We can't do that]
Why not? - [We've done the math]
They need air - [There's lots of time]
You don't care - [My hands are tied]
Time's up - [You can't say that]
Why not? - [You move to fast]
You won't change - Why can't you see, it's part of our history

On the streets of gold
Where everyone has too much money
On these streets of gold
You've always got something to hide

No more - [We know we should]
Why war? - [The money's good]
It must stop - [We'll find a way]
You might not - [What can I say?]
The reason -[Religion's one]
You teach them - [When they are young]
They won't change - Why can't you see...
That's how it has always been

(Repeat Chorus)

You say we need some changes
Why should we do that?

Please stop - [We can't do that]
Why not? - [We've done the math]
You won't change - Why can't you see, it's part of our history

(Repeat Chorus)

6. Blind Side of Your Heart

Where were you hiding and when did you know
You'd feel more safe inside a world of your own?
You're disappointed, you sure do wear it well
I can tell
You've got your reasons, still you remain
Behind the wall you built to keep out the pain

If you can wait until tomorrow
My guess is you will have everything you need

Imagine where you'd been today without the
Blind side of your heart
Let ist out, there's no doubt
You'd be better off without the
Blind side of your heart

And when you wake up don't be surprised
What may be waiting when you open your eyes
This is the moment you've been tried so hard to conceal
This is real

(Repeat Bridge)
(Repeat Chrous)

It's not too late to learn to live without the
Blind side of your heart
Given time, you may find
You don't need to hide behind the

Blind side of your heart
It's so much easier to see things through the
Blind side of your heart
But with eyes open wide
You'll discover what's inside the
Blind side of your heart

7. Return to Forever

I've lost focus, there's some thing wrong
I've no sense of direction
Am I somewhere I don't belong?
Is that really my reflection?
One ticket is not enough
There's only one solution
I'll re-discover my wonderlust
And write my own conclusion

Touching the untouchable
It's always a big surprise
And when you're walkin' with your pockets full
You can enjoy the ride

I've got a feelin' it's not too late
I've made my reservation
I'm gonna leave it in the hands of fate
To exceed my expectations
I found a way to return to forever
Back to the days when I had nothin' to lose
I may have let it fade away
'Cos I yould get through anything, one way or another

No hesitation, no holding back
A silent celebration
No stopping, I'm back on track
With new anticipation

(Repeat Bridge)

I found a way to return to forever
Back to the days when I had nothin' to lose
I may have let it fade away
'Cos I yould get through anything, one way or another
I found a way to return to forever
When no-one ever told me I was breakin' the rules
I'll need let it slip away
And I know there is still more yet to be discovered

(Repeat Bridge)
(Repeat Chorus)

8. Too Deep

Zero hour - I've gotta get a move on
But where I'm goin' I don't know
Ice and fire - The light is all around me
Situations touch and go
Feel that heat - I wanna seize the moment
Noe before the moment's gone
To the wire - We'll talk about it later
'Till then the search goes on

Too deep for the tears
You left me waiting here
Just frozen in fear
Those cold uncertain times
Too deep for the tears
The passage of those years
Has dried up the sea
Of hope that's held me near

Cloud of stars - The freshness of a vision
Fast forward and fade to black
Aftermath - I'm running by the hour & there's no turning back
Heart and soul - The price is gettin' higher
And the coast is clear but steep

Sunken sun - Creates a world of shadows
But I'm in too deep

(Repeat Chorus)

Seeds of change - I know the day is comin'
But the hour is getting late
Keep the faith - Although it's getting harder
I know I just can't wait

(Repeat Chorus)

9. You Know I Know (Chapter 12)

Here we come - now there's a cloud upon the city
We're not done - under an unforgiving sky
Don't pretend - and as the dust invades the twilight
This will end - we see there's still no signs of life
Dust to dust - how did the dream become the nightmare?
No more trust - our deepest fears have all come true
How it ends - we should have had some kind of warning
That depends - but there's no shelter from the truth

You know I know
You're gonna give it one more try
I know you know
There's more to this than meets the eye

Once - now there's an unfamiliar landscape
You need rain - nothing remains of what we knew
So insane - so now the task of reconstruction
Who's to blame? - we'll built it up and start anew
Sreets of gold - the days of innocence are over
Bought & sold - so much for living in the past
Don't forget - as weprepare to face the future
No regrets - we know each day could be our last

(Repeat Chorus)

10. Rise and Shine

Colour blind,
Looks like it's dinner for two,
Anxious bride,
Still no sign of the groom,
Pantomime,
No one plays by the rules..

It's closing time,
Back to your room with a view
You got another chance to...

Rise and Shine
Or yesterday will slip into tomorrow
You gotta Rise and Shine
Anytime you find someone to follow

Dim the lights,
Somone's trying to play us a tune,
Just wait in line,
I'm sure they'll be with you soon..
Friday's child,
Dances by the light of the moon...

Well it's closing time,
Back to your room with a view,
Got another chance to...

Rise and Shine
Or yesterday will slip into tomorrow
You gotta Rise and Shine
Anytime you find someone to follow

You gotta Rise and Shine
Yesterday will slide into tomorrow
It's time to Rise and Shine

(Guitar Solo)

You gotta Rise and Shine,
Or yesterday will slip into tomorrow,
Gotta Rise and Shine,
Anytime you find someone to follow...

Gotta Rise and Shine,
Or yesterday will slip into tomorrow,
You gotta Rise and Shine,
Maybe you can find someone to follow...

You got to Rise and Shine . . . or yesterday will slip into tomorrow.

11. Worlds Apart (Chapter 16)

Why do we do what we do now and
What should we do ?
Why do we do what we do now and
What will we do ?
Would you like a new start that would be world's apart?

Now you're sellin' everything you can
& you don't wanna but you know you have to
Well, if you're tired of fighting in the sand
Well I've got something I've been dyin' to show you

I've kept my secret well concealed
-Don't forget about how well I know you-
Now all can safely be revealed
-You won't believe what i'm about to show you-
And while you were out there on your own
I went away and tried to make it for you

(Repeat Bridge)

I understand you had a plan
But now your back's against the wall
And once last chance slipped through your hands
And now you're heading for a fall
I found the perfect home away from home
And found a way to change the climate for you

(Repeat Bridge)
(Repeat Chorus)

Why do we do what we do now & what can we do?
That is part of the search between heaven and earth
Why do we do what we do now & what should we do?
We have come to the end , let's start over again

Why do we do what we do now & what will we do?
Would you like a new start?
World's apart
