PATH TO HOME

The shores and the coastlines glisten, with each wave breaking,

As our nation’s forgotten souls start their journey home,

With the sound of their heartbeat racing, the Clan’s begin embracing,

A bridge forever, a path to home.


Wherever we may go, our bloodline flows,

we’ll always find a path to home.

Our heritage and clans, pride in our land,

We’ll always find a path to home.


The Gathering has to end now, with last words spoken,

As our people leave again, a thousand miles from home.

Through the mountains and over oceans, our bloodline stays in motion

A bridge forever, a path to home…..


Wherever we may go, our bloodline flows,

we’ll always find a path to home.

Our heritage and clans, pride in our land,

We’ll always find a path to home.

SIMPLE LIFE

Red Stripy socks and blue jeans on

The suns beating through on his face

He don’t like it hot but that’s alright

Cos’ he’s living outside the rat race.


Lyin’ on his bed with a fresh warm breeze

Blows a smile across his face

No time for rushin’, he’s at a slow cookin’ pace

He’ll be ready when the running’s done.


That’s alright, hey, hey

Because he, is a man who loves the simple life

That’s alright, hey, hey

Because he, is a man who loves the simple life.


Strolls to the fridge, grabs himself a beer

He’s got a thirst for doin’ nothing.

Picks up his guitar, he likes a nice warm noise

He’ll be ready when the running’s done.


He needs a haircut, he needs a shave

He’ll let a few more days pass by

Cos’ he’s having fun, i think he won

Cos’ he’s living outside the rat race.

That’s alright, hey, hey

Because he, is a man who loves the simple life

That’s alright, hey, hey

Because he, is a man who loves the simple life.


La la la la la

La la la la la la………


Well its time for work, its time to run

He’s gotta go get something done

But why do it today when tomorrow’s OK

He’ll be ready when the running’s done.


That’s alright, hey, hey

Because he, is a man who loves the simple life

That’s alright, hey, hey

Because he, is a man who loves the simple life

That’s alright, hey, hey

Because he, is a man who loves the simple life

That’s alright, hey, hey

Because he, is a man who loves the simple life.

SMILE IN THE STARS

An Island’s sunset, golden walks,

Infectious laughter, with heartfelt talks,

Great times gone, now in the past,

But your inspiration, forever lasts.


A smile, like the sunshine through the rain,

A smile, that could hide your pain,

A smile, that took fear away,

Your smile, in the stars will stay.


A mother’s love, a daughter’s tears,

You held strong, throughout the years,

That inner strength, healed others scars,

Now that inspiration, lives in the stars.


A smile, like the sunshine through the rain,

A smile, that could hide your pain,

A smile, that took fear away,

Your smile, in the stars will stay.


It’s so hard that you’re no longer here but the memories help the pain,

Like the times spent on the golden shores, a theme park in the rain,

You always had some words to say, with laughter was your style,

Tho’ we’ll never hear your voice again, we’ll always see your smile…


A smile, like the sunshine through the rain,

A smile, that could hide your pain,

A smile, that took fear away,

Your smile, in the stars will stay.

WHERE BIRDS DON'T FLY

Get off the corner the blue fuzz cry

The street is a place where the birds won’t fly

They don’t know if you’re real or not

They might not even try

‘Cos one more ‘could be’ off the streets

It gives them peace of mind


They have to put a front on they can’t back down

‘cos people need to see, who runs this town

Its like living in a crime scene that should have been and gone

But it hangs on their shoulders for so so long


This is the place where the birds won’t fly

This is the place where the birds won’t fly

This is the place where the birds won’t fly

This is the place where the birds won’t fly


Do they know right and wrong?

How long will it last?

A future lost forever now, they’re stuck out in the past

What will become of them stuck beneath the grime?

Caught up in the madness, hangin’ on the line

Business as usual, the birds won’t fly

People need to speak out, someone needs to try

If you could turn it all around, if you could make them fly

Soaring up above the clouds, high, high, high.


This is the place where the birds won’t fly

This is the place where the birds won’t fly

This is the place where the birds won’t fly

This is the place where the birds won’t fly.

HOLD ME TONIGHT

Hold me tonight, as I’ll be gone in the morning, don’t cry my dear.

Hold me so tight, as if our last time together, I’m going on the road again.


Miles, days or years away. Love lost in time.

It’s a long time, ’til I’ll be home again. So hold me tonight.


Lie by my side, like we do on Sunday mornings, a smile on your face.

But the warmth on my side will be gone in the morning, I’m going on the road again.


Miles, days or years away. Love lost in time.

It’s a long time, ’til I’ll be home again. So hold me tonight.

It’s a long time, ’til I’ll be home again. So hold me tonight.

GOOD TO GO

Stand around

Hear the sounds arising from the solid ground

See the lights that dim and they can feel the crowd

Breathing just as one

It’s good to go.


They need a kick start

Waking hopes and dreams within their beating hearts

Using every strength to stop them tearing apart

Bearing all their soul

It’s good to go.


Well it’s good to go

‘Long the highway down the path

Always good to go

Through the teardrops and the laughs

Yes it’s good to go

In a second’s time

It’s good to go.


Doing everything like they planned

Urging everyone together hand in hand

Soaking up emotions that their hearts command

Filled to overflow

It’s good to go.


Well it’s good to go

‘Long the highway down the path

Always good to go

Through the teardrops and the laughs

Yes it’s good to go

In a second’s time

It’s good to go.


When the horizon fades into a distant line

And all is done until they meet again another time

In anticipation for another sign

Then they know that it’s

Then they know that it’s.


Can’t wait and see

Risking all for one chance to be feeling free

Leaving in the past the times the disagreed

Living for the now

It’s good to go.


It’s good to go

‘Long the highway down the path

Always good to go

Through the teardrops and the laughs

Yes it’s good to go

In a second’s time

It’s good to go

‘Long the highway down the path

Always good to go

Through the teardrops and the laughs

Yes it’s good to go

In a second’s time

It’s good to go.
