Track Name: Who is fooling who?
Who is fooling who?

Who is really fooling who,
when the chips are down and you head for town?
Don't recognise the games you play
are just wasting time and they're pulling me down?

So, who is really fooling you,
when your dreams are broken and your pockets empty?
Won't you ever realise that
this time you waste is not a time of plenty?

Are you saying nothing now,
'cause no words can right your sorry fable?
Are you never gonna turn around,
'cause although you lost there's always one more table

Won't you ever realise,
that you fool yourself with your guilty pleasure?
Maybe when you come on home
you'll unlock the door, find your only treasure

Who is really fooling who,
when the chips are down and you head for town?
Don't you recognise the pain,
the waste of time it's still just pulling me down?

Who is really fooling you,
when the dreams you stole are running on empty?
Won't you ever realise that
this time you waste is not a time of plenty?

Are you saying nothing now,
'cause no words can right your sorry fable?
Are you never gonna turn around,
although you lost yourself there's always one more table

And, won't you ever realise,
that you fool yourself with that guilty pleasure?
Maybe when you come on home, babe
you'll lock the door, find your only treasure

Are you saying nothing now,
'cause no words can write your sorry fable?
Are you never gonna turn around,
although you lost yourself there's always one more table

And, won't you ever realise,
that you fool yourself with that guilty pleasure?
Maybe when you come on home
you'll unlock the door, find your only treasure

Who is really fooling who,
when the chips are down but you're back from town?
Track Name: When the Mood Takes You
When the Mood Takes You

One day, when the mood takes you
You'll run away to search for your dream
In some ways, should the mood take you
You'll chase down the stream heading out to sea

And, some day if the mood makes you
Blind sided, will you still see me?
Just praying the mood not take you away from me, oh no

How can you be so lost in the light?
How can you be so lost in the light?

Then comes that day when the mood takes you
You'll run on home remember your dream
But on that day I'll have gone searching out at sea

Then comes that day when the mood takes you
You'll run on home remember your dream
But on that day well I'll have gone searching out at sea, yeah out to sea

Won't find me as the mood takes you
Lost in the light you will stay
How could the mood ever not take me?
Take me away, take me away

How can you be so lost in the light?
How can you be so lost in the light?
As the mood takes you
As the mood takes, takes you away
Track Name: Bridges (Crossed and Burned)
Bridges (Crossed and Burned)

She is down on her luck, with no place to turn
Embedded with waifs and strays, her skin patched with bruises and burns
The clothes on her back are tattered and torn
She sleeps in the doorways, where drunks spit out their cold scorn

A lonely young man, with no money to spare
Staggered to see her pain, not sure if he should care
He stretches out his hand, clings to the hope that she can stand
But her fear backs her into the shadows
A helpless girl in a hopeless land

He's a stranger to luck got no place to turn
Embedded with the waifs and strays, his sin was only to yearn
The coat on his back is matted and worn
He sleeps in old boxes, wishing he'd never been born

If only somebody, with a minute to spare
Would offer some tea and their hand, to prove that somebody cares
So he reaches out to touch them, Grasps at hope but he can't stand
And their guilt drags them out of the shadows
Their focus sharp on their homemade plans

What do you do when you lose your way?
How do you cope with that pain?
In a world that just turns away

Well bridges are crossed and bridges are burned
You know that the truth is the proof
It's a lesson that never is learned
You know that the truth is the proof
A lesson that never is learned
Track Name: The Sea Refuses No River
Just as all rivers will flow to the sea,
So forgiveness must come easily
Though your hands are tied today,
You'll be hand in hand tomorrow
That's got to come easily,

In simpler times it seems you're like the river,
Well that must flow easily
Won't it feel the way it feels to a stranger by the water
You forgive her anything, You can give her everything

The sea refuses no river,
they all flow easily, they flow because they're free
The sea to the river like a stranger must seem

If you really can’t forgive her
then it won't come easily,
you know it don't come easily

Just as all rivers will flow to the sea,
so forgiveness must come easily
Though you wash your hands today,
you'll praying for tomorrow
That won't come easily,
you know it won't come easily

The sea seems like a stranger to me,
no river sets me free,
that don't feel good to me
