NOTES: Nearly 30 years after their self titled debut album, Canadian melodic/prog rock legends, Saga are back to offer their amazing new studio album, Trust. Trust once again delivers that trademark Saga sound; progressive rock chops combined with memorable, radio-friendly melodies. Trust was recorded in Saga's home country of Canada, which proved to be as inspiring to the recording process as England was for their hugely successful classic album, Worlds Apart. Trust is a feast for all fans of classic, melodic and progressive rock and is sure to please the die-hard Saga fan base. The fantastic cover artwork was done by the multiple award-winning Hungarian artist, Bal zs P pay.

1. That's As Far As I'll Go

You're running scared, you're not prepared
that's undeniable
Shows you how much I know
I will admit to bein' a bit less than reliable
That's as far as I'll go
Just look at me, I thought my dreams were unachievable
Shows how much I know
I've had my share of wear and tear
It's inconceivable
That's as far as I'll go

(bridge)
And what if all that I say is a lie
You would never know
so let's keep it simple and we'll do all right
That is all I know

Call me naïve, but I believe
I'm private property
Shows you how much I know
Maybe a word will help much to curb
your curiosity
That's as far as I'll go

(chorus)
You know all you need to know
That's as far as I will go
You know all you need to know
That's as far as I'll go
So let me guess, I shouldn't question your sincerity
Show you how much I know
And should you ask I'll raise a glass to mediocrity
That's as far as I'll go

(repeat bridge)
(repeat chorus)

Just look at me,
I thought my dreams were unachievable
Shows you how much I know
I've had my share of wear and tear
It's inconceivable
That's as far as I'll go
(repeat chorus)

2. Back To The Shadows

How do you know?
We've all been looking for you
You didn't give a clue
Now I'm confused
So what has happened to you?
There is so much you could do

[bridge]

Forget about me
You can't see me
Forget about it
You know that I'm not real
Forget about it
So what's the deal?
You know you don't need me
What can we do?
We've all been counting on you
I don't believe that it's true

[bridge]

Forget about it
You don't know where I've been
Forget about it
I'm just a go-between
Forget about it
Why can't you see?
You know you don't need me

[chorus]

Back to the shadows
It's time to fade away
If you know what I know
It's not too late and where did the time go?
It's time to fade away
So it's back to the shadows

Please go away
'cos you've got nothing to say
I see you turning away

It's all okay
It might be better this way
You know why I'm not afraid

[repeat 1st bridge]
[repeat chorus]

3. I'm OK

Some days are like all the rest
for all the wrong reasons
but some days they stand alone
for all the wrong reasons
These are the days I like the best
for all the wrong reasons
These are the ones I carve in stone

[bridge]
I didn't mean
I didn't mean to start the fire
but how was I to know
What I know?

[chorus]
Why must I qualify testing my faith?
When I'm OK, I'm OK
Do what I can then I leave it to fate
'cos I'm OK, yes I'm OK
Don't be confused by
my expression of confusion
It's there to show I'm secure in my illusion

the nights when I can't find sleep
for all the wrong reasons
are the nights I call my own
for all the wrong reasons
the present company I keep
for all the wrong reaons
re-assures me I'm not alone

[repeat bridge]

[chorus]
Clarify, justify, meet me half way
'cos I'm OK, yes I'm OK
Mystify, verify, all in a day
and I'm OK, yes I'm OK
Don't be confused by
my expression of confusion
It's there to show I'm secure in my illusion

[repeat 1st chorus]

4. Time To Play

I could send you back to school
you've got the time to learn the rules
to make it work you need the tools
It's time to go back to school
You think that your computer's real
I just never liked the feel
what about the sounds you steal?
You don't know how to keep it real

(chorus)
Now or never
Do you think it's time to play?
All together
there is no other way
there is nothing more to say
Now or never
I think it's time to play

What about a melody?
I can see you don't agree
You can find the remedy
but you just don't think like me
Are you gonna run away?
Don't you play the time to play?
Your days are numbered, you should pray
I can't hear a thing you say

(repeat chorus)
Now or never
Do you think it's time top play?
All together there is no other way
There is nothing more to say
Now or never there is no other way
There is nothing more to say
Now or never
I think it's time to play

5. My Friend

The winter now is finally passed
I'm re-acquainted with my dreams
all that was done yesterday
the things that I believed
I feel a new strength restored in me

I wonder what you're thinking now
or if you even see
You wish that you could change the past
Have you taken all you need
I know that you're not laughing now

[chorus] Many years have gone by my friend
So many miles down the road
The whell still runs and I ride the spokes
each new season brings

[chorus]

Darkness falls on behind me
I'm starting now to find my way
I'ts over now and you're nowhere near
I still can't hear your name

6. Trust

Trust
You find it hard not to give it out
Trust
You find it harder tryin' to live it out day after day
Trust
You spend your life tryin' to get it
Trust
But when you do you can bet there's a price that you'll pay
Trust
What we need is a lot more
Trust
Even if it means a little more for sale
Trust
You know you can't do without a little
Trust
You're smack dab in the middle of a paper trail

(bridge) Standing alone in the dark
still searching for some kind of spark

(chorus)
Trust yourself and in good time
Trust becomes your state of mind
When trust is offered, it's seldom free
If there's no-one out there
You can trust in me, put your trust in me
'cos when trust is offered, it's seldom free
If there's no-one out there, put your trust in me

Trust
We can all use a bit more
Trust
But only if it fits form, tiem and a place
Trust
Give it out take it back and
Trust
Pretty soon you'll have a knack for leaving no trace
Trust
Just as long as there's a limit
Trust
You keep eye your on the minimum and what's at stake
Trust If you're lookin' for someone's
Trust
You know there's gotta be a little more give and take

(repeat chorus)

Trust
If you're lookin' for someone's
Trust
You know there's gotta be a little more give and take

7. It's Your Life

I wonder why you care so much
when you don't wanna do it
we always put you through it
Every day we ask a lot
we know you're gonna do it

[chorus]
It's your life
Don't think twice
It's your life
Don't think twice
It's your life

You cross the line and make up your mind
Do you think you're gonna make it?
'cos you don't have to take it
You are the kind that will always find
Sometimes you gotta fake it
But you really gotta shake it

[bridge]
You know you gotta know
Sometimes it's touch and go
It's time to just say no

[repeat chorus]

You make yourself such an easy touch
Doesn't matter who you're nice to
'cos you want us all to like you
To let us down would be too much
But maybe you're afraid to
'cos that is how we made you

I know it's touch and go
It's time to say no

You know you gotta know
Sometimes it's touch and go
It's time to just say no
It's your life

Every day you find a way
to do more than you want to
It's always there to haunt you
One word will change your day
No matter what we ask you
Say no and put it past you

[repeat bridge]
[repeat chorus]

8. Footsteps In The Hall

The sound is getting closer
The footsteps in the hall
I can hear them talking
I listen through the wall
It sounds to me like someone is heading for a fall
Maybe I should follow the footsteps in the hall

[chorus]
Do what you want to
You're too late
I'm watching you
Do what you want to
It's far too late
I'm on to you

Now I hear the door close
I step out in the hall
I listen through the doorway
I listen through the wall
Maybe I could stop this or maybe I should call
It sound to me like someone is heading for a fall

[repeat chorus]

The elevator opens
I run back to my room
I hear a lot of voices
They'll get him very soon
I don't know when he's comin'
I don't know what to do
Now the room is silent
We'll all be in the news

[repeat chorus]

Now here comes the victim
He doesn't have a clue
Then I hear the room scream "surprise" this night's for you...

9. Ice In The Rain

It's not easy
It's hard to please me
If you're angry - turn it up
Getting older
Here's my shoulder
Now go on and - turn it up

[bridge]

Everything that you're feeling
Yes, time has been healing and
if you only do one thing it's
learn how to wait

You can hide it
You can fight it
While you're waiting - turn it up
Time will heal it
Can you feel it
I know you know it - turn it up

[repeat bridge]

[chorus]
Now all of those feelings
are melting away
Now it's okay
It's like ice in the rain

Are you ready?
Keep it steady
You control me - turn it up
You'll get through it
There's nothing to it
So just do it - turn it up

[repeat bridge]
[repeat chorus]

And if you're feeling
You're going insane
You'll find out the pain
is just ice in the rain

There is no pain there's
only ice in the rain
Don't turn away it's only
ice in the rain

[repeat chorus]

All that you do now
and all that you say
is melting away
It's like ice in the rain

10. You Were Right

Take it
Go on and take what you want now
I don't need a lot
Take it
No need to know what you're up to
We don't need to talk
Break it
You know that I'm gonna be there
Tell me when to stop
Brake it
I'm sure that you'll do the right thing
That would mean a lot

[bridge]
How do you feel
when you know that it's not real?

[chorus]
Time to tell you
I believe you
Now I know you were right

Back it
There's so much you could be doin'
Things you just forgot
Stack it
And when someone saw what you were up to
you made them take a walk
Slack it
no-one knew what you might be doin'
You're never on the clock
Back it
You find a way to do what you want to
and hope you don't get caught

[repeat bridge]

[chorus]
Time to tell you
I believe you
Now I know you were right
Time to tell you
I believe you
Don't I know you were right

Take it
Don't need to know what you're up to
We don't need to talk
Shake it
I'm sure that you'll do the right thing
That would mean a lot

[repeat 2nd chorus]

11. On The Other Side

So there you are
You've travelled so far
breaking rules never meant to be broken
living like there's no tomorrow
You've spent most of your time
criss-crossing the line
speaking words never meant to be spoken
'cos you feel your time is borrowed

[chorus]
It's never been about "you know who"
on the other side
Someone's savin' a place for you
on the other side

Day after day
you continue to play
only games you prefer when you're winning
but still you feel rather hollow
You still have some doubts
what life's all about
when in fact this is just the beginning
and there's so much more to follow

[chorus]
It's never been about "you know who"
on the other side
Just imagine what you can do
on the other side

You dream the same dream
like swimming upstream
You're not sure what you'll find
when you get there
but you still feel overdriven

[chorus]
It's never been about "you know who"
on the other side
Someone's savin' a place for you
on the other side
Just imagine what you can do
on the other side
It's never been about "you know who"
on the other side
