Track Name: If I Could Be You
Marathon runner
Self assured lover
Dedicated mother
Man undercover
Righteous preacher
Who knows what he believes in
High class hooker
Who works on the streets

And if I could be you
You could be me

Homeless beggar
Man who reads the weather
Newspaper seller
Urban city dweller
Stay at home woman
Who cooks and does the cleaning
Office worker
Who lives for the weekend

If I could be you
You could be me
If I could be you
You could be me

We are the same (I know you’ll know me if you try)
Just people with people’s names (Can we swap places for a while?)
Let me look inside of you (You took my thoughts, I stole your mind)
Let me stand in your shoes (Now we’re one and the same kind)

Born to be a winner
Self confessed sinner
Born again believer
Satellite receiver
Underpaid worker
With no place to sleep in
The next big thing
Who thinks he’s really something

If I could be you
You could be me
If I could be you
You could be me
If I could be you
You could be me
Track Name: Airplanes and Oceans
All that’s inside of you
The same as it’s been
Airplanes and oceans
Can’t change what’s within

Nothing’s familiar
It’s all in the haze
Just close your eyes a while
And remember the days

What could be hiding
Under the tree?
Find out tomorrow
What it might be

Looking for silence
It never comes
Put on your headphones
Comfortably numb

What could be waiting
Over the sea?
Find out tomorrow
What it might be

Well I’m no longer waiting
I’ve found far too much
But you’re all I could ask for
And real to the touch

Well I’m no longer waiting
I’ve found far too much
But you’re all I could ask for
And real to the touch
Track Name: Meant To Be
Once upon a time when baby you was born
Maybe you're a daughter or maybe you're a son
You grew up fast and now you're getting on
Now you know that life doesn't last long at all

You thought you’d be happy as long as you save enough
Money in the bank to have a holiday
A pension adding up to retire one day
To buy a nice house and then you’d have it all

Maybe now you’re happy
Maybe now you see
It’s not meant to be

Whenever you die will you be happy with your life?
Will you have done all the things that you thought you’d try?
Will you look back at all the days you spent on earth
And wonder whether it was really worth it at all?

Maybe now you’re happy
Maybe now you see
It’s all meant to be

Maybe now you’re happy
Maybe now you see
It’s not meant to be

Maybe now you’re happy
Maybe now you see
It’s not meant to be
Track Name: The Destination
What if they never came out to greet you?
How’d you think you’d be out there on your own?
Alone, just a livin’ breathin’ contradiction
You’re tall, you’re strong but you’re not fully grown

What if your watch just stopped its ticking
And you asked for help but no one would?
You’d search for new kinds of motivation
Counting your steps, tryin’ to force for good

No one proclamation is gonna lead you to the destination
No wonder she ain’t got your back
The secret’s out and you can’t hide behind your emerald curtain
Just one day closer to the heart attack
Just one day closer to the heart attack

What if they broadcast your confession?
And all the critics left you out to dry
You’re not unique, you settle for illusions
Try this now, you know it gets you high

No one proclamation is gonna lead you to the destination
No wonder she ain’t got your back
The secret’s out and you can’t hide behind your emerald curtain
Just one day closer to the heart attack
Just one day closer to the heart attack

What if you wake up cold and sweating?
Was this done to you or should you blame yourself?
She can’t provide you with an explanation
You’ve just discovered all your hidden wealth
Track Name: A Quiet Place
I ask not for wealth
i don’t ask for praise
I ask not for power
Or for length of days

I want only a quiet place
Where my friends can come
Where my friends can come
I want only a quiet place
Where my friends can come
Where my friends can come
And it feels like a home

I don't ask for much
I'm not what i’ve got
But if i could ask
For just one thing

I want only a quiet place
Where my friends can come
Where my friends can come
I want only a quiet place
Where my friends can come
Where my friends can come
And it feels like a home

I want only a quiet place
Where my friends can come
Where my friends can come
I want only a quiet place
Where my friends can come
Where my friends can come

And open the door
And open the door
And it feels like a home
And it feels like a home
And it feels like a home
Track Name: Scarlet
They can’t win the war
‘Cause no one knows the score
You've got too far to go
Yeah, you've got too far to go

You all look the same
Ready, fire, aim
Scarlet on the snow
Yeah, scarlet on the snow

Each and every one
Trigger to the gun
Tame the tiger son
Each and every one

Now the day is done
The time has surely come
Raise your glasses high
We cannot tell a lie!

Each and every one
Trigger to the gun
Tame the tiger son
Each and every one
