Lyrics

Great Great Day

Written By: LOAD

I'm not over due
Please help me
Cos I've fallen, I've fallen down
I can't reach the ground
I'm not all right by myself
This can't be, can't be
I don't know why I'm cursed
I don't know when I've felt worse

Circus Song

Written By: LOAD

I love the one who walks the tight rope
Dangerous and high
Hands on my eyes.
How do i tell him that I love him so?
How do I command his attention?
Spread lots of love around
I'm not a fool with lots of love around
I'm not a fool to love you
Please come down ...
Off that rope.

Beautiful Space

Written By: Luce Forsythe, Johnny Stewart

Two hearts can beat together
To become one, they must hold on
There's a strong pull to search forever
When you've found love
You don't search no more.
There's a warm tide
Alive in the darkness
That controls love, like the touch of a girl
Who can slow down
And look at the water
And can show you that there's just so much to love...
Dig it?
In this time and in this place
It's such a special space
And every time please understand
Meet me here and take my hand.
In all the time I've waited for
You to step right through my door
And in this time I hold so dear
I'm just thankful for you....
And that you are here.

And that you are here. :)

More And More Each Day (I'm OK)

Written By: Chris Burke-Gaffney, Luce Forsythe

More and more each day, I'm ok ...

So erotic
So exotic
Our love was so hypnotic
We were famous
People named us
We were super sonic.
Then people change
They rearrange
It's unfortunate but true
We did exactly what we said
What we said we'd never do ....
You broke down - so I broke down.
Just like Bruce Lee
In a Kung Fu movie
When the fists start flying cos
He gets angry
So he packs his baggage
And he chips his weight off of her
Chipped up shoulder
Just like Bruce Lee.

More and more each day, I'm ok
I felt it better to walk away
I'm stronger than I'm brave,
I felt it better to walk away
Cos you broke down and I broke down
just like Bruce Lee in a
Kung Fu movie

Morning Dew

Written By: Bonnie Dobson

Walk me out in the morning dew my honey
Walk me out in the morning dew today
But I can't walk you out in the morning dew my honey,
I can't walk you out in the morning dew at all.

Thought I heard a young man cry like a baby
Thought I heard a young man cry here today
But you didn't hear no young man cry like a baby
You didn't hear no young man cry at all.

I thought I heard a young man cry, baby
Thought I heard your man cry here today
But you didn't hear no young man cry like a baby
You didn't hear no young man cry at all.
