Track Name: Edencane - What If
what if today
held a taste of tomorrow
you’d raise your glass
hold your head up high
you decide to change your mind
on the colour of the room
you decide to stay behind

what if tonight
all the things you’ve imagined
every mistake
might come undone
would you stop and take the time
to recover from the cold
would you like to take the time
so you can
hold on

what if your life
you could live every second
while all the world
spins the time away
we could leave it all behind
when the colours fade away
we should leave it all behind

all….

what if tonight
led you far from the present
into the past
and back again
you could sing and I could
play the piano just for you
we could try the other shoe
so we could
hold on

showered with a wish
fornicate you with a kiss
like a falling star
I come crashing in my car
I fall, for you I fall,
for you I fall for you

say a prayer
say a prayer
say a prayer
say a prayer
say a prayer
say a prayer
Track Name: So Confused
You and I we're
so confused no
reason why no
need to justify
I feel the way I do

all the same though
nothing’s heard I
cant express the
things I cant confess
or to say the final word

nothing left to win or lose
just the part you have to choose
you can tell the truth or lie
you can look me in the eye
there’ s no need to justify
or to think you're losing

You and I we've
come this far no
losin’ sleep
over secrets that we keep
far away from who we are

left alone the
truth is shown the
road is clear the
destination near
and the consequences known

You and I we've made amends
can we stay this way as friends
I can see it in your eyes
there’s no need no sacrifice
or to contemplate the lies
and regret we started

You and I we
fall apart I
lost my heart and
now Im losing you
is there one thing I can do

so alone and
so upended
cant control the
truth within my soul
and the time it takes to mend

all the same we play the game
let the situation change
when I think we’ve been revived
and the plans to come alive
fall behind when I arrive
and we just got started
Track Name: Ticket To Heaven
I got a ticket to heaven for you and me
if we can make it we’ll get on board
you and me
this is the angle that we want you to see
this is the angle that you ought to perceive

we’ll have a lot of time on our hands
we’ll be able to play one night stands
on the town
on broadway

Ive got a buyer for our bad company
she will surprise you, come in late
you will see
she got a replacement for our old strategy
repeating a mantra to evoke synergy
repeating the mantra
repeating the mantra
this is the angle
this is the angle

all our friends will calling our names
all the critics will laugh just the same
the review
on broadway

there’s a lotta lights on broadway
there’s a lotta queues on broadway
broadway
there’s a lotta muse on broadway
there’s a lotta lines on broadway
broadway

lotta nights
lotta lights
lotta queues
lotta muse
lotta lines
lotta signs

there’s a lotta nights on broadyway
broadway
there’s a lotta signs on broadway

lotta nights
lotta lights
lotta queues
lotta muse
lotta lines
lotta signs

on broadway
Track Name: Desert Rain
Ive seen a desert rainbow
across the sky
the desert sky

‘n Ive seen a desert rainbow
across the land
the desert sand
I held it in ma hand
the desert rainbow
the desert rain
rainin in ma brain
rainin on ma brain
on ma brain

I keep holdin' on to you
oo oo oo
that’s what I do
oo oo oo

I like it when you you’re down
where the shadows meet my feet
I turn around
there’s a place I want to meet
Ive b’n around
where the undercover seeds
on fallow ground
I’ve b’n around

I keep holdin' on to you
oo oo oo
that’s what I do
oo oo oo

Ive seen a desert moonbeam
In the desert night
Ive seen it in my dreams
in the desert night
‘n Ive seen a desert rainbow
across the sky
under southern skies
you and I
we’ll meet again

I keep holdin' on to you
oo oo oo
that’s what I do
oo oo oo

I go down
where the angels lie in wait
the sun goes down
and the shadows hide my face
I turn around
I know the hour is getting late
I stand around
I stand on solid ground

I keep holdin' on to you
oo oo oo
that’s what I do
oo oo oo
Im holdin' on to you
oo oo oo
holdin’ on to you
Track Name: Mundane Love
I can only believe
my emotions aside
what Im hearing inside
I can only reveal
my elation is clear
can the truth be denied

I can only percieve
when Im in your embrace
I can finally face
I can read your expression
now the message is clear
in the steps I retrace

can you feel it
in a melancholy way
you believe it
live to fight another day
talk about it
am I feeling secure
all around it
I’m the one to endure

Ive been waiting all night
for the same situation to rise
Ive been wasting my life
for the next was a big surprise
Ive been trying to tell everybody
that I could never be that man
no I could never be that man

considerations alone
cant attest to the crime
in a nation unknown
when your cover is blown
there’s no reason or rhyme
and the seeds have been sown

realisin’ my time
is in limit supply
that’s a thing of the past
so I take what is mine
making sure to get by
never sure it will last

can you feel it
in a melancholy way
you believe it
its the price you have to pay
talk about it
when Im feeling secure
all around it
I’m the one to endure

Ive been waiting all night
for the same situation to rise
Ive been wasting my life
for the next was a big surprise
Ive been trying to tell everybody
that I could never be that man
no I could never be that man
Track Name: New York City Sunrise
people asking questions
policemen telling lies
the lead up to elections
I wish my star to rise
I come across ‘m everywhere
I watch ‘m on tv
I can't afford to sit and stare
and let it get to me

new york city sunrise
the light is in your hair
new york city come to me
when I’m in despair

gotta get up gotta get up
everywhere and everyday
gotta give it gotta live it
as far as I can see
gotta get up gotta get up
that every time in every way
gotta give it gotta live it
you’ll be leavin’ me

who will love you now
who will care
who will love you now
when you’re over there

you be wakin' in a daydream
you be locked away again
you be workin' on a sidechain
to be in the state I’m in

new york city nightlife
voices in my head
loud enough to kill a man
but let him live instead

who will love you now
who will care
who will love you now
when you’re over there
Track Name: Understanding
I travel hard
up and down this road unending
I travel light
into the rain descending
I travel deep
into the primal jungle
I fall asleep
and watch the pieces crumble

through understanding
the pieces bond
the understanding
goes far beyond

I wont shy away
when I hear you say
that you’re lovin me unending
if what you say is true
we’ll be closer too
and never be alone

when you come on down
you can feel the waves are breaking
we run aground
I can feel the earth is shaking

the understanding
is hard to find
understanding
peace of mind

in your heart today
when you’re far away
listen to the voices calling
see the curtain fall
it’s a wakeup call
you’re asleep and in your dream
you’re showing us the
innocence
and deeper meaning

won't you come on down
to the river I'm waiting for you
on common ground
and with the day before you

the understanding
is close at hand
understanding
at your command

you can take control
make the pieces whole
feel the fire burning
you can tell apart
what you feel in the heart
you can feel the earth is turning
we are learning
each and every
understanding

the understanding
it’s close at hand
understanding
at your command
Track Name: Nobody Knows
nobody knows
where it all goes
over the border
out of the room
into the hall
out to the corner

nobody knows
how the wind blows
over the water
I will be lost
only so far
as someone can lose me
abuse me, refuse me, confuse me
as far as someone can lose me
as far as some can abuse me

nobody knows
it comes and it goes
leavin’ a part of me
packed up and gone
river flows on
into the garden

nobody knows
as far as it goes
right to the heart of me
its goin’ straight to the heart of me
its goin’ straight to the heart of me

I had to be leavin’ baby yesterday
I gotta be leaving baby on my way
ooh ooh ooh yea
hey hey hey yea

nobody knows
just one of those things
that keeps on going on
you’ve come and gone
it’s been so long
become a part of me
you know you become a part of me
you know you become a part of me

I had to be leavin’ baby yesterday
I gotta be leaving baby on my way
ooh ooh ooh yea
hey hey hey yea
Track Name: Real World
the rivers are fallin'
the rivers are fallin down on me
the rivers are flowin'
the rivers are flowin' to the sea
the rivers are callin'
the rivers are callin' out to me
the rivers are waitin'
the rivers are waitin'

you can fill my cup
let the river run dry
but when the water comes deep and wide
nobody can deny

but I know that I don’ wanna to live in the real world
because I know I got nowhere to go in the real world

the rivers are waitin'
the rivers are waitin’ to be free
the rivers are callin’
the rivers are callin’

every kiss is a blessing
every bliss brings me closer
every breath makes me lighter
in the light of the fire

but I know that I don’ wanna to live in the real world
I decide I got nowhere to hide in the real world

real world, real world, real world
real world, real world

while the world is awake
you can fall asleep at night
fall into a dream
keep on dreaming the same old dream

but I know that I don’ wanna to live in the real world
because I know I jus’ wanna be held in the real world

real world, real world, real world
real world, real world
Track Name: Cheap Hotel
a million miles away
to tell the truth
when I saw you yesterday
no way of getting through to you

it never crossed my mind to say
what I had in store
when what I call divine creation
walked right in the door

there’s many a story told
and many a book been wrote
about a man who sold his soul
and he never wrote a single note

he ended up behind the times
at the scene of crime (it's a matter of time)
ended up in the same old place
he thought he’d left behind

welcome to the brave new world
information technology
you were dressed in city clothes
with your lapbook on you knee

you took the time to lay it out
in front of me
just in case I could not face
the facts that I could not see

you said you’re car’s outside
shall we go for a little ride
Im not so keen on a cheap hotel
but I love the countryside

Im watching every move you make
and everything you say
the way you suck your cigarette
and blow the smoke my way

I got down on my knees
and I saw the light above
my revelation’s near
how could this not be love

you whisper in my ear
the sweetest thing I know (you say to me what I wanted to hear)
before the conversation ends
I have to go

now Im crossing every T
and every cul de sac
I can see who we’ve become
and there’s never no turnin’ back

I'm not a man who makes a move
I like to play it cool (play by the rules)
not always necessary
but end up playing the fool
Track Name: Washed Away
we drive so fast
yet our lives are slowly
slipping through our hands like sand

what can we say
we’ve done with life’s gift so far
are you more of who and what you are

In this quest for more
it seems to me that we
have far less truth and faith and love

is more of the most
and more of the best
the same as needing your daily bread


coz there’s a foolish grin
upon the face
of the human race
whose soiled gold
is all he lays on the sands of time
to be washed, washed away

to be washed away, washed away
to be washed, washed away
to be washed, washed, washed away

to be washed away, washed away
to be washed, washed away
to be washed, washed, washed away

is who you are
what you want
or is what you do
who you are

are you true
are you blue
do you know the real you
has your soul journeyed far in your new model car

coz there’s a foolish grin
upon the face
of the human race
whose soiled gold
is all she lays on the sands of time
to be washed, washed away

to be washed away
washed away
to be washed, washed away
to be washed, washed, washed away

to be washed away
washed away
to be washed, washed away
to be washed, washed, washed away
