Track Name: Not Coming Home
Not Coming Home
(C. Stewart)

V1
And while I see you sleep
I dare not make a sound
You wont see me weep
For my feet wont touch the ground

Chorus
Wherever I may roam
Where I do not know
My heart is searching far and wide
But there's no way that I can travel home

V2
Empires come and go
Depending on the flow
I live on memories
Where they are I do not know

Chorus

V3
Right now you feel no pain
But the cause remains the same
Locked inside your shell
Only fragments still remain

Chorus

There's no way that I can travel home...
Track Name: I'm Not Scared Anymore
I’m Not Scared Anymore
(C. Stewart)

V1
I’m tired of running
And hiding away in the shadows
I’m tired of searching
While walking on the straight and narrow
I’m tired of feeling
Bruised, battered and sore
Coz I’m not scared anymore

V2
Backed into a corner
With nowhere left to run
The tables have turned now
The hunter has become the hunted
You can knock me to my knees
And I’ll keep coming back for more
Coz I’m not scared anymore
Coz I’m not scared anymore

V3
It’s time for me to rise
Rise up above the ashes
And take my rightful place
Amongst all that share the passion
Coz this time I know what to do
As I’m walking out that door
Coz I’m not scared anymore
Coz I’m not scared anymore
Coz I’m not scared anymore
Track Name: You In My Life
You In My Life
(C. Stewart)

V1
One and one makes two
And that’s me and you
So don’t be scared, coz I
Will be right behind you

Ch
From the first day that we met
I felt our souls colliding
I knew that there’d be no regrets
In fact, there’s no denying
I knew as day turns into night
And all my wrongs turned into right
It’s coz I have you in my life

V2
I can see, that life
Is more interesting
You and me, tonight
We can start romancing

Chorus

Solo

V3
Growing old with you
Is what I look forward to
With each day, I say
Those three words “I love you”

Chorus

Coz I have you in my life...
Track Name: Waiting For You
Waiting For You
(C. Stewart/M. Standing)

V1
An old woman is staring out her window
She casts her eyes upon a dying world
She knows her life has always been in limbo
It’s been that way since she was a little girl

V2
She wonders why her empty heart is trembling
It’s because she finds herself alone
And every day needs reassembling
It’s as if she had been born a clone

Ch
All her life been waiting for you
All her life has broken in two
All her life was waiting for you

V3
She is calling out across a river
She hears an echo screaming through the dark
But there is no one else to hear her
There is no more life in her beating heart

V4

She turns away and meditates in the silence
And wonders how all of this can be
Her dying world, it lead to so much violence
Her pain and sorrow surrounds her needs

Chorus (x2)

Solo

Chorus (x2)
Track Name: I Won't Let You Down
I Won't Let You Down
(C. Stewart)

V1
I look at the sunrise
With you beside me
I’m feeling so complete
Coz I know baby
With you in my corner
The world is at my feet

Chorus
It doesn’t matter when, where, why or how
I will make this promise to you now
You and me can turn this world around
You know baby I wont let you down

V2
I know that sometimes
Life is not that easy
And it’s hard to get through the day
But all I need from you
Is to see you smiling
Coz it melts my blues away

Chorus

Bridge
Minutes turn to hours
Turn to days then turn to months
Then turn to years as they pass us by
Forever is the longest time
But I’m prepared to stay and fight
With you right there by my side

V3
Late in the evening
While the world is sleeping
I put my arm around you
As I hold you closer
I don’t ever want to let you go
But I know you feel the same way too

Chorus
Track Name: One In A Million
One In A Million
(C. Stewart)

Ch
You’re one in a million
You’re one of a kind to me
You’re one in a million
What’s the possibility?

V1
I have searched this world forever
For the one who soothes my soul
I have walked this path less travelled
I have worn my feet to the bone

PCh1
But my heart it keeps on saying
That I shouldn’t give up now
Coz I’m so close to this destiny I’ve found

Chorus

V2
In the past I’ve really struggled
With my loneliness and doubt
Like a piece without a puzzle
I was always left without

PCh1

Chorus (X2)

Solo

V3
I am glad I’ve finally found you
I embrace this ecstasy
Like a needle in a haystack
This improbability

PCh2
But my heart was always saying
Never give up no matter how
Coz I know that you’re the destiny I’ve found

Chorus (X2)
Track Name: Where Is The Love?
Where Is The Love?
(C. Stewart)

V1
It seems this world is going mad
We’re fighting over the things that we never had
The ones who have rule the ones who don’t
Imposing their will over the ones who won’t

PCh
But one man will die in the arms of another man
So we’ll try to survive in the only way we can

Ch
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?

V2
For many years we’ve gone without
Humanity, it cries "we’ve had enough"
With only so much to go around
It’s time to shake these ivory towers to the ground

PCh

Chorus

Solo (Verse)

PCh

Chorus (x2)
Track Name: Movin' On
Movin’ On
(C. Stewart)

V1
Ever since we parted ways and said our last goodbyes
Anything that’s ever associated with you would make me cry
I know that over time I will learn to forget
But forgiving is the hardest thing and I haven’t learnt that yet

Ch
But I’ll be movin’ on
I’ll be movin’ on
I’ll be movin’ on
Moving on forever
Coz I’ve set my mind on where I want to be

V2
I’m taking my recovery one step at a time
But living in this present moment is the last thing on my mind
Nothing’s ever answered if I’m dwelling in the past
But this happiness inside of me is the one thing that will last

Chorus

Instrumental

V3
A time will come one day when I’m at peace with my world
And everything will click into place from the sane to the absurd
By the time I’ve come full circle nothing much will have changed
Coz the world hasn’t stopped and waited for my life to rearrange

Chorus (x2)
Track Name: My Kind Of Life
No lyrics, just music :)
Track Name: Is It Love?
Is It Love?
(C. Stewart/M. Standing)

V1
Is your love for real
Yes my love it’s how I feel
Time loves me not
My looks are shot

V2
Is it love that you feel
When the road has lost it’s seal
Please tell me not
My nerves are shot
How long have we got

PCh
Is it love
Do you care
Is it love
Are you aware

Ch
Stop putting me down
You know that i can’t take it
Stop fooling around
You know that we gonna make it home

V3
Is it love that you need
Or a fix to set you free
I don’t wanna know
Getting late i’ve gotta go
It’s guilty once more

PCh
Is it love
Do we care (Is it love)
Is it love (yeah eah ah eah)
Are you aware (Is it love)
(Tell me is it love)

B
Where did love go
Out the window
Can we get it back?
I really hope so
Love is so cruel
Without you
It’s borrowed time
Yeah what’s wrong with you

Ch
Stop putting me down
You know that i can’t take it
Stop fooling around
You know that we gonna make it home

Out
Is your love for real
Yes my love it’s how I feel...
Track Name: Wasted Time
Wasted Time
(C. Stewart)

V1
I’m standing here surrounded by the mess
Of all the best laid plans of mice and men
I’ve wasted time
That I can’t get back again
I’ve wasted time
That I can’t get back again

V2
I’ve spent my lifetime trying to second guess
But running in circles drives me round the bend
Coz I’ve wasted time
That I can’t get back again
Coz I’ve wasted time
That I can’t get back again

Ch
It took me many years to realise
That the answer I’d been searching for
Was right before my eyes
If my mirror could speak, it would say to me
That every day presents an opportunity
Coz I’ve wasted time
That I can’t get back again
Coz I’ve wasted time
That I can’t get back again

Intro

V3
Before I go there’s one thing I’d like to address
That I’m the only person I need to impress
Coz I’ve wasted time
That I can’t get back again
Coz I’ve wasted time
That I can’t get back again

Ch

Track Name: How Does It Feel?
How Does It Feel?
(C. Stewart)

V1
You’re running here, you’re running there
You live your life as if you’re driven by fear
Another place, another time
Another stage is set but nobody's here
Try to escape, it’s not too late
But your cries for help will fall on deaf ears
You want to change but realise
You reached a wall that you’ve been building for years

Ch
How does it feel?
Living in a world that’s not real
How does it feel?
Tired of reinventing the wheel
How does it feel?
This was never part of the deal
How does it feel?
It’s better to be standing than to kneel

V2
Another day comes to an end
The sun is setting and you’re feeling alive
As darkness falls you wander what
Will happen to you as day turns to night
The consequences of your actions
Are a matter of what’s wrong and what’s right
But until then you’ll do what you need to do
In order to survive

Ch

M8
How does it feel
In a world that seems unreal
You’re lifting off your mask now
To see what it reveals
You’re blinded by the sunlight
As you’re craving for the moonlight
It all seems so surreal

Solo (verse)

V3
You’ve had enough, the time is now
The difference between the truth and the lies
But you need to stop this spinning world
That you’ve created right between your eyes
The only answer that you seek
Can not be found in the life that you lead
The only way to end this journey
Is to separate your wants from your needs

Ch

Track Name: Love, Truth, Life
Love, Truth, Life
(C. Stewart)

For years I watched the world go by
While I built myself an island
And tried to live upon it now
Solo and defiant
What is love? What is truth? What is life?

But all I ever wanted was
To be so independent
But the loneliness inside of me
Was not what I expected
What is love? What is truth? What is life?

The hardest part of letting go
Was pulling down the fences
That stopped the world from coming in
And taking on my senses
What is love? What is truth? What is life?

It’s taken me a long time
To realise we’re all connected
In one way or another
This bond needs to be protected
What is love? What is truth? What is life?

You took my pain and washed me clean
And now I stand here naked
I see my world in front of me
My life is what I make it
What is love? What is truth? What is life?

Because of you I have the strength
To leave myself wide open
And through my venerability
It strengthens my devotion
What is love? What is truth? What is life?
What is love? What is truth? What is life?

You’re my love, you’re my truth, you’re my life...
Track Name: Blink Of An Eye
Blink Of An Eye
(C. Stewart)

V1
I see you standing on the corner
Waiting for the lights to change
And by the look upon your face
It tells me you’ve had a terrible day
You know it's always fascinated me
Because it makes no sense
That we live and we die
All in a blink of an eye

Ch
(Ooh...) You spin me right around
(Ooh...) You turn me upside down
(Ooh...) It tears me up inside

V2
When you wake up in the morning
What is going through your mind?
Are you thinking that your life
Is something that you have to grin and bear
You know this torture that you're living
It doesn’t really have to be
I know that life isn't fair
But you can have your share

Chorus

Solo

V3
You are one of many people in this world
Who really hate their lives
And it's this hatred that you feel
That stops you from breaking free
This prison that you've put yourself in
There is a way to escape
If you'd just take my hand
And together we can make a stand

Ch
(Ooh...) You spin me right around
(Ooh...) You turn me upside down
(Ooh...) It tears me up inside
(Ooh...) Coz you make me feel alive
(Ooh...) This is hard for me to say
(Ooh...) I can take your hurt away
(Ooh...) But I will never know

Outro
I see you standing on the corner
Waiting for the lights to change
