Track Name: Sunshine
Just for a moment last night she felt
Like the weight of 1000 bad days
And the tears rolled down
Let them roll on down
And sunshine, take me on my way

And with the love of her friends on her left and right
She could wear her heart on her sleeve
She says love is the only way to bring sunshine tomorrow
I know that's what she believes

Sing out, our troubles be gone
Sing out, troubles be gone
Sing out, won’t you take me on my way, yeah
Sunshine take me on my way

Now do I hold this back or defend myself or fight for what I love
What is all this for?
Why do we hurt those we love the most?
Sunshine will you take us through our war

Sing out, our troubles be gone
Sing out, troubles be gone
Sing out, wont you take me on my way
Sunshine take me on my way

Can you see through my eyes?
Can you see where I stand?
You see I'd do anything for your love
To this world I'm an open hand
Now sunshine, pull it through my hands
Sunshine, pull it through my hands

And sing out, our troubles be gone
Sing out, troubles be gone
Sing out, won’t you take me on my way
Sunshine take me on my way
I said sunshine take me on my way

So if you want to sing you can sing
I'll sing now let your troubles, let them all be gone
If you want to sing you can sing
I'll sing now let your troubles, let them all be gone
And if you want to smile, let that smile stay for awhile
Won't you take me on my way?
Yes, won’t you take me on my way?
Sunshine
Sunshine
Sunshine
Sing out yeah your troubles be gone
Now sing out, sing out; let it be gone
And let your smile stay for awhile, for a little, little while longer
And we can be on our way
To better, better days
Yeah, to better, better days

And we can sing, yeah
Take me on my way
Track Name: Maeflower
Regardless of what I say, and regardless of what I do
Yeah my words, my thoughts, my breath, my song yeah baby
They all belong to you

And I liken you to an angel, yeah your wings, your spirit, in the sky
You keep bringing me life, and you’re bringing me love
It’s your smile on my sunshine

And your beauty’s overflowing, and your smile never fades
You shine through day you shine through midnight skies
Sweet Maeflower, whoa, now won't you dance away

And your skin it melts into my skin, and my hands across your face they glide
It’s your warmth; it’s your comfort, yeah embracing my soul
It’s one kiss, one kiss to stay alive
So green the grass, and so crisp the air, our path, our path begins to grow
My hand in yours, and your hand in mine, I will never let you go

And your beauty’s overflowing, and your smile never fades
You shine through day, you shine through midnight skies
Sweet Maeflower, now won’t you dance away

And your beauty’s overflowing, and your smile never fades
You shine through days you shine through midnight skies
Sweet Maeflower

And your beauty’s overflowing, and your smile never fades
No your smile never fades
Shine through my day, through my midnight sky
Oh yeah sweet Mae
Won’t you pretty please, won't you dance away
Won’t you dance away
Track Name: Angel
It’s far beyond me
Yes, it’s out of my reach
There's nothing I can do now
It’s up to you

And don't waste your words
They're just useless energy
I can't believe how far we've come, brother
We’ll thank you, I’ll thank me, we’ll thank this family

La, La
La, la, la, la, la, la

A new story, a brand new dream
Yeah, with my hands in your hands, come and fly with me
And let this cloud break open, bring this child her peace
Come on and send me my angel

We pick up the pieces, but this time you’re missing one
We fill these spaces, that deeper deep water
Another story sung

La, La
La, la, la, la, la, la (Repeats)

A new story, a brand new dream
Yeah with my hands in your hands, come on fly with me
And let this cloud break open, bring this child her peace
Now won’t you send me my angel?
Come down and set me free, Lord

La, La
La, la, la, la, la, la (Repeats)
Track Name: Peace Of Mind
I came to say hello, to leave here feeling better
But I left without goodbye, and this time we both cried
And you’ve tried letting go, but I'm better to hold on to
And you'll find somebody else, but it’s better when I'm gone
Its better when I'm gone

But I'm not sorry, and I do appreciate
What you've shown me because I'm better after all
Sometimes we need to learn and its better if we fall
And I know that you and I we will find some peace of mind
Find some peace of mind

Now I wish to you the best, but I feel you even more now
And I know from this we'll grow if you don't take my love for granted
No, don't take our love for granted

‘Cause I'm not sorry, and I do appreciate my love
What you've showed me, ‘cause I'm better after all
Sometimes we need to learn and its better when we fall
And I know that you and I we will find some peace of mind
Find some peace of mind

And then your storm cloud erupts and leaves me feeling empty
Bring your sunny day to me
My heart needs love to be free
And I’d love to hear your voice just as long as you bring me comfort
Bring your sunny day to me and let my heart, let my heart be free
Bring your sunny day to me

And I’d love to hear your voice just as long as you bring me comfort
Yeah bring that sunny day to me
Track Name: Mexico
It’s a simple life in Mexico
The sun shines brighter and there's time to go, yes
Anywhere that you want to go, love in Mexico

I found a way to keep me calm
Through these days when everything seems to go wrong
It’s your smile on my mind, yes, I'll be fine, thank you for your time

Now everything is clear
There's no worries, no more fear
And I’ve loved, but not like this
There's nothing sweeter than your kiss

Now if I could wish for anything
It would be to have you show me all of the things
That true happiness can only bring, we will fly away

Now we'll fly away to paradise
It’s the paradise living in your eyes and mine
And do all of the things that we've never done before
And every day new love, I’ll keep loving you more and more

And now everything is clear
There's no worries, no more fear
And I've loved, but not like this
There’s nothing sweeter than your kiss

And now everything is clear
There's no worries, babe, there's no more fear
And I’ve loved, but not, but not like this
There's nothing sweeter baby, sweeter baby, there's nothing sweeter than your kiss
Track Name: Boxer
Listen closely, do you hear this train blow?
Louder, louder, we're getting closer to home
I'm trying to find this and trying to look for the good
In all of these humans its getting less than it should

Ba, ba, ba, ba

Listen closely, do you hear this train blow?
Louder, louder, we're getting closer to home
And if you hear this, yes, today you've been touched
It’s time to make your difference, it’s time to make love

Ba, ba, ba ba
Ba, ba
Ba, ba, ba, ba

‘Cause I could be a boxer, or I could be your friend
Or I'll just be the reason that you’re here

Ba, ba, ba ba
Ba, ba
Ba, ba, ba, ba

We keep it simple, but I won't lose this sight
Yeah do what is right for you and I'll do my right
I know you’re laughing; I know you’re smiling inside
Just empty your pain, your worries and I'll empty mine

Ba, ba, ba ba
Ba, ba
Ba, ba, ba, ba

‘Cause I could be a boxer, I could be your friend
But I'll just be the reason that you keep coming back, you keep
Yeah, I could be a boxer, or I could be your friend
But I'll just be the reason that you’re here

Ba, ba, ba ba
Ba, ba
Ba, ba, ba, ba

Track Name: Love Is The Only Proof
So I don’t mind the things that life brings
It’s kind of funny how it all falls on me
But at the same time it can be too much
It’s for a purpose so we’ll drink it up

La La Hey
Oh yeah, yeah

And we all surf these waves, there’s highs there’s lows
If you just keep riding, you will see that anything goes
And there’s one simple truth to all it seems
We back each other up we can calm these seas filling with hate
They’re filling with hate

Yeah, my love
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

The waves roll quickly, they roll over us and they fall back out to sea
We can try to prove ourselves or we can let it come out naturally, yeah
The waves roll quickly, they roll over us, and they fall back out to sea
And we can try to prove ourselves or we can let it come out, it comes naturally

We can move so fast, we catch our breath, we live imperfectly
We can try to prove that love is true
I said, we can move so fast, just catch our breath, we live imperfectly
And we can try to prove that love is true
If we let it come out
We let it come out
Let your love come out
Let it come naturally
Won’t you let it come out
Let it come out
Let it all the way

And prove for yourself
And love is the only proof I have to give
And prove for yourself
Yeah, love is the only proof I have to give
And I’ll prove myself
‘Cause my love is all I have to give
Is all I have to give
And I’ll prove, yes I’ll prove
Yeah I’ll prove, yeah I’ll prove
Myself, yeah myself

‘Cause my love is the only proof I have to give
Can you feel it?
Yeah love is the only proof I have to give
Can you feel it?
Oh my love is the only proof I have to give
Whoa I can feel it, oh I can feel it

Oh my love is the only proof
Oh my love is the only proof
Oh my love is the only proof
Oh my love is the only proof I have to give
I have to give
I have to give
It’s in you, it’s in me

Yeah yeah you and yeah yeah we
Yeah yeah you, yeah yeah we
Yeah yeah you, yeah yeah we


I’m feeling love, yes I’m feeling love
Love
In love
Track Name: Everything
I need a place where I can go
To hide my fears far from this world
But it’s easiest to forget
It’s what makes us happy in the end

And I found some contentment, I found some peace
Somehow I keep finding what’s missing from me
And everything’s changing just a little too fast
We're running in circles, reliving the past
I want you to say, and I want you to feel everything I'm going through
It’s living in you, oh, yes everything I’m going now
I'm going now

We live in a world that's full of lies
Can you hear them, can you hear our cries
But he's blind, are now able to see
Just put your hand in my hand and walk with me

‘Cause I've found some contentment, I found some peace
Somehow I keep finding what’s missing from me
And everything’s changing just a little too fast
Were running in circles, reliving the past
I want you to say, and I want you to feel everything I'm going through
It’s living in you, yes everything I’m going now
I am going now

I'm going
Yes, I'm going

And I want you to say, and I want you to feel everything I'm going through
Yes, it’s living, yeah living, it’s living, it’s living in you
And I want you to see everything
I want you to feel every little thing, ah, yeah every little thing, ah, he cry’s
Just let him cry
Just let him cry, let him cry
He can't cry anymore
He can’t cry anymore
‘Cause every little..he cry’s
Track Name: Joyride
Crawling back inside my skin
I look out at the ocean
Thoughts that fill inside my chest
Steal the air and my mind can’t rest
And now this poisons knocking at my door
Rocky waters they embrace my safety, yeah
I let it go and float away
Into this blue, yeah, for just one day

I think of you and you make me smile
We’re spinning love, it’s a hundred miles per hour
Take me to that place, the comfort, softness of your face
And the city roars and the mountain soars above, above me, yeah
Said, I think of you, and you make me smile
We’re spinning love a thousand miles per hour
Take me to that place, the comfort, softness of your face
And the city roars and the mountain soars above, above me, yeah

And then, I’m holding on, yeah, to you
Said, the sky making me feel now so blue
And when I think about our yesterdays
Said, I’ll be alright

So it’s you’re joyride, a maze you got me spinning in circles
Oh, a free ride all the way across this town
Oh, a crazy place, make sure you lock your doors at night
No room for space, let’s work on making all of this right
We can make this right, yeah, yeah, yeah

But, I’m holding on, yeah, to you
Said the sky’s making me feel now so blue
And when I think about our yesterdays
Said I will be alright, said I’ll be alright, said I’ll be alright

Stay, feeling don't leave, I said go
It’s my head my shoulders to my toes
And pain, won't you go, go away, go away
Now stay, feeling lonely, I said go
It’s my head, my shoulders to my toes
And pain, won't you go, wont you go away, go away

But I'm holding on, yeah, to you
Said the skies making me feel now, it’s so blue
And when I think about our yesterday
Said I won't change for no, no, no nobody
And I will be, I will be on my own way
Said I'll be alright, yeah, yeah
Said we'll be alright baby
Said we'll be alright
