Track Name: The Great
before you jump you think of
all the places you might go
and the time that you can't feel
seems like a slightly appeal

once you're there
you breathe
the mist, the rain, the sea
once you're there you seek
the clear, the sun, the tree

so always bring me home
that i can share, feel and reunite
so always bring me home
that i can carry on the great i found inside.

when you're gone you miss
the wide, the mystery, the light
when you're back you'll remember
the days that were so bright.

so always bring me home
that i can share, feel and reunite
so always bring me home
that i can carry on the great i found inside.

when you're home you feel
the pictures that you made
are like postcards on their way
the smallest piece of all the great.

so always bring me home
that i can share, feel and reunite
so always bring me home
that i can carry on the great i found inside

that i can carry on the great i found inside
Track Name: Revelstoke
what are you up to in your cool blue coat

people stand in line
you're watching it grow
sitting in the same place
couldn’t call it home
the time that flashes by
the time you spent alone

take me to the woods so i can carry on my way
thoughts are like postcards
the smallest piece of all the great

sitting in the same place
couldn’t call it home
the time that flashes by
the time you spent alone

i was going there
you were going there
walking with a bear

but you didn't come along

get me out of here, so i can lead to the glade
fine lines in the meadow
from all the footprints that we made
sitting in the same place
couldn't this be home
the faith that let us run
the one we build alone

i was going there
you were going there
walking with a bear

and the path will lead us north

face away from the sun
face away from the sun
face away from the sun
face away from the sun
Track Name: Prelude
all these thoughts right here
that I keep
and unspoken words
let me feel
how I feel

will I be part of you
or whatever you will do

will I be part of you
or whatever you will do
Track Name: Nothing Left To Lose
won't find me there in the winter
warming my soul in the sun
turning the tides to my bidding
living my life on the run

theres nothing there
nothing left to lose
the road less travelled
is the one i choose
it's not the place i hold clear to me
you know, it's you and our history

in the newness i find solace
and in strangers i find friends
you are far but not forgotten
i hope one day to make amends

theres nothing there
nothing left to lose
the road less travelled
is the one i choose
it's not the place i hold clear to me
you know, it's you and our history

for i am not lost, i am just on my way
slowly getting there, i'll be home one day
for i am not lost, i am just on my way
slowly getting there, i'll be home one day
Track Name: Father
You're gone you're gone
You're overdue
The times they are a changing
But they've changed enough for you. 

You're lost you're lost
You're all confused 
At why they are a calling
Just a calling out for you 

Your daughter was the other one
A crying by your side
When you said you had nobody left
The pain was hard to hide

She took herself back to the place
You'd taught her how to build
The place with four walls standing
And a garden freshly tilled. 


But now there is so little left
Of who you were before
Just moments fleeting with their grace
I'm tired at your door.


You're gone you're gone
You're overdue
The times they are a changing
But they've changed enough for you. 

You're lost you're lost
You're all confused 
At why they are a calling
Just a calling out for you 

But now there is so little left
Of who you were before
Just moments fleeting with their grace
I'm tired at your door 

So father can you hear me now
As I fold up your last shirt
The truth is that I love you still
Despite the years of hurt. 

The truth is that I love you still
Despite the years of hurt. 

Ohhhh Father
Track Name: Dancers
Two lovers in a prophesy
So perfectly entwined, so quiet.
You wake and turn your eyes to me
The dawn'll catch us out if we allow it

But close outside the city's hum,
Before the day has quite begun
Calls songbirds to their branches
And guard-dogs to their haunches.

Once were Dancers
once were dancers
i'll remember the night
i'll picture the scene
still lingers on
in my mind at night
once were dancers

One love encased in ecstasy
So perfectly entwined, so quiet.
Your heart, my soul, you'll set me free
Nothing can catch us now, I know it.

But close outside the city's hum,
Before the day has quite begun
Calls songbirds to their branches
And guard-dogs to their haunches.

Once were Dancers
once were dancers
i'll remember the night
i'll picture the scene
still lingers on
in my mind at night
once were dancers

once we were
once we were…
