Track Name: Suitcase
SUITCASE

VERSE 1
SUUUU SUITCASE FLYING, FLYING OUT THE SIXTEENTH FLOOR
NO HOPE IN TRYING,
IT’S GOING TO HIT HARD THAT CONCRETE FLOOR
THROWN TOO FAST AND WAY TOO HEAVY
OUR SUITCASE MASHED UP LKE JELLY
VERSE 2
SOOOO RECENTLY, SUITCASE WAS ON HOLIDAY
UNPACKED AND SITTING PRETTY
YOURS AND MINE UNLOCKED, WE’D FOUND A WAY
TO BE OURSELVES AND SAVE OUR SOULS
WE RAN AND GRABBED OUR SUITCASE
SO HAPPY TO LEAVE AND SAY GOODBYE
WE KISSED AND HELD OUR SUITCASE
MID 8
KEEP A HOLD AND DON’T LET GO
SAW YOUR EYES REVEAL MY SOUL
DON’T GIVE UP YOU SAID TO ME
FOLLOW UP THESE STEPS WITH ME
COULD BE A HONEY MOON, SUCH LOVE
FAR AWAY FROM THE PUSH AND SHOVE
I WANT YOU, YOU ARE MY HEAVEN
STAY WITH ME FOR EVER AND EVER AND
VERSE 3
(FOR)EVER AND EVER AND EVER (AND EVER) (X4) ..pause…
(FOR)EVER AND EVER AND EVER (AND EVER) (X4)
BETTER OR WORSE, COLLECT OUR THINGS
PACK UP AND GRAB OUR SUITCASE
I’LL HOLD YOU, YOU HOLD ME
TOGETHER WE’LL HOLD OUR SUITCASE

SUITCASE, SUITCASE, SUITCASE…
HOLD ON TO YOU,
HOLD ON TO ME,
HOLD ON
Track Name: Wishing Well
WISHING WELL

VERSE 1
THERE’S A FIRE IN THE HOUSE, HOW DO WE PUT IT OUT?
THERE’S A PIPE ABOUT TO BURST, AND WATER’S LEAKING OUT
THERE’S JUST FOUR WALLS AND A CEILING, AND A BATTLE IN BETWEEN
TO SAVE OURSELVES FROM TURNING, HEARTLESS AND MEAN
ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON
CHORUS 1
NEW LIFE BEHOLD
I WANT TO TEACH ME SOMETHING BEFORE I GET TOO OLD
I WANT TO MAKE THE HOURS MEAN SOMETHING IN THEMSELVES
AND THE DAYS MARKED OUT WITH DIFFERENCE
NOT LOST IN A WISHING WELL
VERSE 2
NOT MUCH SENSE IN WHAT I’M DOING, NOT MUCH SENSE IN CHASING COIN
RELENTLESSLY PURSUING, WHAT I’D ACCIDENTALLY JOINED
DREAM OF A LIBERATION, TO STAND UP AND GET OUT
WHAT A DAY THAT WOULD BE, MY ANGELS WOULD SHOUT
ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON
CHORUS 2
FAITH IN US, HEAVE HO
MAKE IT COUNT EACH SECOND AND FAITH WILL GROW
THE WIND WILL BE BEHIND US RUNNING BY OUR SIDE
AND LOVE UNFORGOTTEN OUR NEW SUNRISE
MID 8
TWIST THAT KNIFE OUT
IT’S IN YOUR SIDE
THE PAIN IS THERE
LEAN ON ME NOW
TWISTED THAT KNIFE IN
DON’T LEAVE IT THERE
GONE…
CHORUS 1
CHORUS 2
CHORUS 1
Track Name: Shooting Star
SHOOTING STAR

VERSE 1
SHOOTING STAR HIT THE SEA
WHEN ANNIE HEARD THE VOICE THAT SAID HE LOVED HER
A MILLION HEARTS ROSE TO SEE
LOVE’S HUSHED FIRST KISS FOR ANNIE
THE CURTAIN CALL WAS OVER, PERFORMANCE ALL LAID BARE
ANNIE STOOD UP SMILING, HER SPIRIT STANDING THERE
THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER, ALL CAME RUSHING BACK
THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER, ALL CAME RUSHING…
CHORUS
ANNIE KEEP THE COLD OUTSIDE
AND WARM OUR HEARTS SO LOVE WON’T DIE
KEEP YOUR HEAD SO YOU KNOW BEST
WHAT LOVE CAN DO
WHAT LOVE CAN DO
VERSE 2
FEAR BOUNCED OFF THE MOON
WHEN ANNIE FELL A HUNDRED FEET FROM THE HIGH WIRE
THE TEARS OF THE LOVE-STRUCK FILLED THE ROOM
SEEING ANNIE CAUGHT THROUGH FIRE
EACH GASP LET OUT DISASTER,
EACH SCREAM EXPOSED DESPAIR
EACH FALLING MOMENT THEREAFTER FILLED THE LIVING AIR
ARMS REACHED OUT TO CATCH HER, ‘COS LOVE WILL NEVER END
HOPE FOREVER AFTER GOT TO ANNIE…
CHORUS
OUTRO
SHOOTING STAR HIT THE SEA
WHEN ANNIE HEARD THE VOICE THAT SAID HE LOVED HER
AND THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER,
ALL CAME RUSHING BACK
THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER, ALL CAME RUSHING BACK
Track Name: Put That Light On
PUT THAT LIGHT ON

VERSE 1
SAW A DEVIL STARING BACK AT ME,
COMBING MY HAIR
FLASH OF DARKNESS STARTED SCARING ME
DEVIL STILL THERE
I WAS BORN TO LISTEN UP
TO DO WHAT I WAS TOLD
GOD KNOWS HOW THAT DEVIL GOT IN
HOW IT GREW SO BOLD
CHORUS
PUT THAT LIGHT ON IN HERE
PUT THAT LIGHT ON AMEN
PUT THAT LIGHT ON IN HERE
GETTING BLOODY AGAIN / [GOD, PLEASE / GOT TO] MAKE IT END
VERSE 2
DREW THE RAZOR TO THE SOAP ON MY FACE
FREEZING OVER INSIDE
THAT DEVIL HAD FOUND ITS PLACE
COULD THAT DEVIL BE KIND?
LIKED TO THINK I KNEW A THING OR TWO
REALLY ALWAYS TOWED THE LINE
IF THIS IS WHAT FREEDOM IS
DEVIL’S MADE ME BLIND.
CHORUS
VERSE 3
USED TO PRAY WHEN I WAS YOUNG
SAY ‘OUR FATHER’ EVERY NIGHT
LAYING BETS ON RED OR GREEN
AT EVERY TRAFFIC LIGHT
NOW I CAN’T FIND A HANDLE ON THAT DOOR
REALLY NO WAY OUT
THAT DEVIL IS RIGHT BEHIND
CUT YOUR THROAT AS YOU SHOUT
CHORUS
OUTRO
SAW A DEVIL STARING BACK AT ME,
COMBING MY HAIR
Track Name: Songbirds
SONGBIRDS

VERSE 1
DON’T RUSH IT ALL AWAY
EASY ENOUGH TO SAY
CHASE YOUR TAIL ‘TIL LIFE’S ALL RUN DRY
DON’T RUSH IT ALL AWAY
CHORUS
RODEO FACTORY
BREAKING THE BACK OF YOU
BOUNCING YOU OFF OF THEIR WALLS
BATTERED AND BRUISED
YOU’RE NOT MAKING THE NEWS
BUT THERE’S BACKING FOR THE BET THAT YOU’LL FALL DOWN
MID 8
HEAR THE SONG BIRDS
THE MOMENT YOU BREATHE IN
THE MOMENT YOU BREATHE OUT
VERSE 2
COUNT ON TODAY
COUNT ON JUST TODAY
TAKE HOLD OF THIS ONE CHANCE
AND COUNT ON TODAY
CHORUS
MID 8
Track Name: Hate
HATE

VERSE 1
AS OLD AS THE HILLS, AS OLD AS THE DARK
AS OLD AS TWO BY TWO TO THE ARK, IT’S HATE.
CAN DRIVE ALL THE ENERGY OUT OF YOU
DRIVE A BITTER SCREW RIGHT ON THROUGH, IT’S HATE.
MID
CAN’T FORGIVE AND CAN’T FORGET, THERE’S A HOLE SO HEAVY
HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVY
IN YOUR HEART, IN YOUR HEART
CHORUS
ANNIE, COME ON AND LIFT YOUR HEAVY HEART
VERSE 2
STONED YOURSELF WITH ROCKS AND BOULDERS
TIME TO STOP HATE GETTING OLDER, HATE.
TWISTED RUIN OF A PATH WELL TRODDEN
FEELING YOURSELF GOING ROTTEN, WITH HATE.
MID
CAN’T FORGIVE AND CAN’T FORGET, THERE’S A HOLE SO HEAVY
HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVY
IN YOUR HEART, IN YOUR HEART.
FALLIBLE HUMAN BEING LIES
BURIED RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES, IN HATE
CHORUS x2
VS 3 (variation)
COAXING A SMILE OUT OF YOU WHILE WE’RE CRYING IN THE RAIN x3
MID
GOT TO FORGIVE, GOT TO FORGET
FIX THAT HOLE SO HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVY,
IN YOUR HEART, IN YOUR HEART
CHORUS x2
Track Name: Helicopter
HELICOPTER

VERSE 1
HELICOPTER’S GOING TO LIFT YOU OUT
TAKE YOU FAR AWAY FROM TROUBLE, DISAPPEAR
YOU’VE GOT YOUR FEET STUCK
AND YOU’RE LOSING IT FAST, IT’S CLEAR
CHORUS
GRAB HOLD OF ME, DRAW ME NEAR
I WILL NEVER DROP YOU, DON’T FEAR
TOGETHER WE WILL PASS THROUGH THIS TIME
LOOK UP HELICOPTER’S RIGHT ON TIME
MID 8
WITH THE SWEATS AND THE CRAMP
AND THE DARK AND THE HOLLOW ECHOING,
THE BLAME AND THE HATE AND THE ANGER
AND THE KNIFE SLOWLY TURNING IN,
GOT TO MOVE PRETTY QUICK WHEN YOUR DEVILS
ARE ON YOUR BACK,
THE LIGHT’S AT THE TOP OF THE TOWER
BUT YOUR UNDER ATTACK
CHORUS
QUIET MID 8
MESS IT UP WITH WORDS, CAN’T TALK AT ALL,
HERE THEN GONE, OUT OF FOCUS, COLLAPSE AND FALL,
SENSES VANISH MELTING INTO THIN AIR,
AS WE REACH OUT OUR HANDS TO SAVE US
REACH OUT OUR HANDS TO SAVE US
VERSE 1
CHORUS
