Track Name: Sweet Girl
she draws the curtains on the windows so the night doesn't fill up all the space
the belly of the horse in the corner swells with the shadows of an army base

chorus
and sweet sweet sweet sweet girl
I want to love you

this room creaks with all the age of her worry and it shivers in the timbers
10 feet high with hollow sides, in the belly of the beast she often crys out

chorus

sometimes I worry what the day will bring
will it bring joy and happiness to sing
and when it rolls up to the gates at night
will she know it ain't worth the fight

chorus

I'm going to love you
Track Name: Boat People
Roll me away
Hide me in the corners of your ship
To stay
Won’t say a word if you guarantee
I’ll be safe
What’s taking so long

Dreamed the journey would be grand
Thought we’d be ushered in with the band

On the South China sea
Heard there were pirates boarding ship
Let me be
The ocean grows wider with each day
Out of reach
Why are we going so slow

Dreamed the journey would be grand
Thought we’d be ushered in with the band

When we arrived
We met men
Who ate gold and silver pie

Asked me for a drink
Told me that freedom, yeah, well, it don’t come cheap
And with a wink
Assured me it was only a matter of time
And in the blink of an eye
All these colours will be yours

Dreamed the journey would be grand
Thought we’d be ushered in with the band

When we arrived
We met men
Who ate gold and silver pie
Track Name: Joy
I looked up towards the sun
for brighter days that lay ahead
and when the sun refused to shine
I blamed it on all but me
I looked up toward the sky
for clearer nights that lay ahead
and when the clouds refused to leave
I realize these clouds will not part if it all does not start with me

chorus
I want to feel the joy of a child
the peace of a baby
I want to feel the love, love, love, love all around
I want to feel the love, love, love, love all around

I looked up towards the stars
to trace my path that lay ahead
and when they all would not align
I blamed it on all but me
I stood up amongst the crowd
to shine this light that lay within
and when the bulb refused to burn
I realized these clouds will not part if it all does not start with me

chorus

now the rain keeps falling over my head
so I rose up to the sky
let it wash sweet and kind over me
'cause I realize these clouds are a part and it's all got to start with me

chorus (x2)
