Track Name: I Heard I Wish It Would Rain
Coming to the end of an era
Massively defeated by fate
It’s not the end for you
Don’t let it shake you

Single minded to a degree
Could you treat her passionately
Strong in the mind
Smiling all the way

You didn’t want the break to be clean
Your hanging in there in between
You shout and moan
Walk back home

Your finally beginning to see
The way you think the new ones will be
Strong in the mind
Smiling all the way

Back home, back home

Everybody knows the way
For one reason or another
And summer days are coming in
And you know that you’ll always win yeah

There’s lots of smiles but nobody’s happy
I heard I wish it would rain

There’s lots of smiles but nobody’s happy
I heard I wish it would rain

There’s lots of smiles but nobody’s happy
I heard I wish it would rain

There’s lots of smiles but nobody’s happy
I heard I wish it would rain

There’s lots of smiles but nobody’s happy
I heard I wish it would rain

There’s lots of smiles but nobody’s happy
I heard I wish it would rain
Track Name: Blown Away
Crumb on your cheek
And a blink of your eye
The wind from the east will
Blow it all away

The feel of the breast between
Your finger and your thumb
Pop it in your mouth
And it’s gone

When the playing is over
And you are fast asleep
With a peaceful look
On your face

Chair at the table
A laugh and a scream
Junk food thrown
Into the stream

Running around before
You ought to
Speaking and blowing rasps
What’s the fascination
With mirrors and balloons

I nearly forgot
What innocence is
And how to enjoy
What we have now

I want to be blown away
With the sweet breath you have
Blown away with
Your loving eyes

So I’ll always know….

So here’s to the new
Where nothing is old
Blowing away a crumb
Is a laugh and a joy

If I ever get down in the mouth
Kick me will you
Blow me away with your smile

I nearly forgot
What innocence is
And how to enjoy
What we have now

I want to be blown away
With the sweet breath you have
Blown away with
Your loving eyes

So I’ll always know

That you are there.
Track Name: Learn to Suffer
I can see through you, I've seen the things you do
I know the words you say won't sway or change my view

I want you to aspire to all those things you desire
I won't stand in your way, no way, let your spirit dictate

Learn to Suffer, Suffer to Learn
Cause no pain brings no gain
it's a fast track to change

You look so good in black swinging to and fro from front to back
Smiling, so obliging, you knock me to the floor

But now it's time to let you go to a place that I don't know
And I'm the one left naked feeling that of course I've got to

Learn to Suffer, Suffer to Learn
Cause no pain brings no gain
it's a fast track to change

Inside my head, Inside my head
Inside my head, Inside my head
Inside my head, Inside my head
