Track Name: Shining Light
I will let my light shine maybe it will touch on you
If it does you will know you can shine your light too
Emit our colours they will fill the air with art
Receive my light's warmth let it fill your heart

Get that fear out of your head
Don't give up because you're not dead
Look within your mind you will find
That you have your own light to shine

Don't give up in darkness just because your light is gone
The night is always darkest just before the dawn
Look within yourself to find the courage that you need
If your heart's filled with love then the morning you will see

Get that fear out of your head
Don't give up because you're not dead
Look within your mind you will find
That you have your own light to shine

Our realities are shaped by our mental states
You can't live happily with a mind that's full of hate
Fill yourself with love and you will see the truth
Life is beautiful, it's a gift, and it is you

Get that fear out of your head
Don't give up because you're not dead
Look within your mind you will find
That you have your own light to shine
Track Name: Insomnia
I lay in bed, wide-awake, unable to fall asleep
Lying there motionless, now it is quarter after three
It isn’t because I’m stressed, although thoughts are running deep
It’s not because of lack of heat, not even in my feet
So why I lay here tired and awake to me’s a mystery
I’ve not seen any horrors or a single drop of tea
I try to quell all my thoughts to let my subconscious rise
But the more I lay here the more I find it is useless to even try
So up I get and on I type of this most conscious night
Void of any restful slumber, unable to switch minds
If dreams would come I’d welcome them, even severe nightmares
For it’d be a rest full of interest with images vivid and clear
But instead I sit here typing what this tired mind resents
And to it now just four hours sleep would be quite excellent
Track Name: One Cyclist's Experience
I ride my bike on the road
And I don't like to ride slow
But I take in what's around
When I bike around town
I see the world outside the box
When I'm not trapped inside a truck

I get miles to the gallon of water
I get out what I put in - in terms of power
I can experience the land that I travel
When I ride my bicycle

On a warm bright sunny day
I like to ride around my city
And as I approach the bay
I feel the wind in my face
It cools me down and charges me up
To pedal harder and not to give up

I get miles to the gallon of water
I get out what I put in - in terms of power
I can experience the land that I travel
When I ride my bicycle

I can help communities
I can improve air quality
Less cancer and disease
Walkability increased
When our city streets
Become emissions free
Just cyclists and buses
No longer car congested

I get miles to the gallon of water
I get out what I put in - in terms of power
I can experience the land that I travel
When I ride my bicycle
Track Name: Take My Hand
Take my hand and let us be gone
Away together we can do no wrong
Draw me your heart, I’ll sing you my thoughts
And I’ll always be happy if this love never stops

For a single kiss at an April tryst
From a gorgeous miss, I cannot resist
Her soft sweet lips and hazel eyes
Warm my heart when they meet mine

Move into my arms and they’ll keep you warm and safe
Move into my heart and when you’re near me it’ll race
Move into my mind and I’ll keep you in my thoughts
Move into my life and this love wont ever stop

A picture is worth a thousands words,
And you’re smile even more
I never saw such a perfect girl
For me love and to adore

It’s simple to see why this attraction is
Sharing the chemistry that naturally exists
Never before have I encountered such lust
Of comfort and joy and eternal interest

Look into my eyes and see my love sincere
Look into your dreams and you’ll see me waiting there
Look into my mind see yourself inside my thoughts
Look into your heart and see me there to love

Take my hand and feelings so strong
Rest your head on my chest and lay in my arms
Draw me your thoughts, I’ll sing you my heart
And finish this song before another kiss starts
Track Name: A Perfect Night
The night is warm the sky is full of stars
That shine with the warmth that you put in my heart
That I always feel when you’re in my arms
So let’s lay in comfort under moonlit dark
Feel the grass on your feet, my hands through your hair
We can stay here all night and not go anywhere

With your eyes focused on mine I can’t help but think
That the feeling it brings me could never be imagined
And that’s how I know that the love we share is true
And I won’t settle for anyone who isn’t you

The sun is now up and it’s burning real bright
But nowhere near the light that you’ve brought to my life
I see you smiling as you wake up next to me
As if there’s no other place you’d rather be
And that’s just fine, I feel perfect here too
Nothing feels better than being the man for you
It makes me happy and makes my heart race
Whenever I put a smile on your face

With your eyes focused on mine I can’t help but think
That the feeling it brings me could never be imagined
And that’s how I know that the love we share is true
And I won’t settle for anyone who isn’t you
Track Name: A Song To Make Amends
This isn't easy for either of us
My heart is in pain like it was just hit by a bus
At the bus stop we met at and I will always cherish
All the memories we made, they will never parish
I gave you so much and you gave me lots too
And I feel so lucky that I got a chance with you

So when you've come to amends
I will still be your friend
Because I am not mad
Even though I may be sad
Time will heal all wounds
And we will still be friends if our love was true

I thought that we might grow old together
I thought that this love would last forever
And I don't know what I am to do
With all of these feelings I still have for you
But I will do my best to let you go
Because I know you need room to grow
Regardless what happened, I want you to know
I will always be grateful you are someone I know

So when you've come to amends
I will still be your friend
Because I am not mad
Even though I may be sad
Time will heal all wounds
And we will still be friends if our love was true
