Lyrics

'Butterflies and all that stuff'

Written By: Russell Johnson

Verse 1

Palm tree's swayin, deck chair waitin
Heaven on earth welcomes me once more
Fans are spinning, children singing
Laughing and clapping on the terrace floor

Verse 2

Young girl swimming, blonde boy grinning
I'm sure he wants to try and steal her heart
Lovers gazing, celebrating
Falling in love, never falling apart

Chorus

And I wish my life could stay this way forever
Dragonflies dance to entertain us
The magic of nature wraps her arms around me
Butterflies and all that stuff

Verse 3

Clouds are drifting, sunlight shifting
A living canvas that will always change
Lizards fleeting, birds competing
Waterfalls and rocks go hand in hand

Verse 4

Beetroot leaves and honey bees
Are things that make an artists palette shine
Mother swimming to her children
Grateful for this family time

Chorus

And I wish my life could stay this way forever
Dragonflies dance to entertain us
The magic of nature wraps her arms around me
Butterflies and all that stuff

Instrumental / Chorus x 2

And I wish my life could stay this way forever
Dragonflies dance to entertain us
The magic of nature wraps her arms around me
Butterflies and all that stuff

And I wish my life could stay this way forever
Dragonflies dance to entertain us
The magic of nature wraps her arms around me
Butterflies and all that stuff

Butterflies and all that stuff
Butterflies and all that stuff

'Footprints of Love'

Written By: Russell Johnson

Verse 1

Candy like features
And candy like air
Wrapped all around us
In visions we share

Verse 2

Blueberry mask
Stuck in melting white snow
Feeling the texture
Of love as we go
As we go
Oh, as we go

Verse 3

Four golden eagles
With nothin to hide
Floatin and driftin
On Earths thermal tide

Verse 4

Stand on the cliff
And I step into space
One step for mankind
All colours, all race
And we go
Ooh, and we go

Acoustic Instrumental

Verse 5

Black and white foam
Smash's onto the rocks
As lovers drift slowly
Through vineyards and lochs

Verse 6

I open my senses
To colours and dreams
And prayer flags send blessings
To lives under siege
And we go
Ooh, and we go
Ooh, and we go
Ooh, and we go

Verse 7

And if we go on
And keep feelin this way
You know our eyes see
What our hearts want to say

Verse 8

We're no longer hostage
In our prison of fear
Footprints of love
Keep us year after year
And we go
Ooh, and we go
Ooh, and we go
Ooh, and we go

'Candy Apple Red'

Written By: Russell Johnson

Verse 1

She kicks back in the business lounge
Pours herself another drink
Say's "Sorry" for the short notice
Guess I need some time to think

Verse 2

Her hand trembles, she takes a sip
Finds her courage in a glass
Starts reflecting on better days
To scared to think this might last

Chorus

Watchin her float around the earth
Visions of her lying in my bed
Ground your feet, straighten out your head
Stay with me candy apple red

Instrumental

Bridge/Verse 3

I've no regrets and I'm not feelin bad
To tell the truth I gave you all I had
Moving baggage to a different place
Drops your emotions in a deeper space

Verse 4

Final call, well I'd better leave
I could be gone for sometime
You can search for me in your dreams
Long legs and kisses like wine

Chorus

Watchin her float around the earth
Visions of her lying in my bed
Ground your feet, straighten out your head
Stay with me candy apple red

Verse 5

She's flyin miles, miles above me
Her heart pounds inside my head
The sun's rays cut through the jet stream
Glowin candy apple red

Chorus

Watchin her float around the earth
Visions of her lying in my bed
Ground your feet, straighten out your head
Stay with me candy apple

Watchin her float around the earth
Visions of her lying in my bed
Ground your feet, straighten out your head
Stay with me candy apple red

Candy apple red
Candy apple red
Candy apple red
Candy apple red

'Walk on Strong'

Written By: Russell Johnson

Verse 1

I feel your friendship
See the innocence in your eyes
Feel the warmth and the gentle touch of your soul
As the fire begins to rise

Verse 2

I wanna touch you
Feel your bodies rhythm next to mine
Want to watch you play
Wanna hear your heart say
Would ya like to stay a while?

Verse 3

We're on a journey
Love now drives our destiny
Close the door on your painful memories of love
Take my hand and believe in me

Chorus

Cause you can walk on strong
And face the road ahead
Aware and alive, you are my friend
I'll support you, I'll nurture you
You matter to me
You are the depth of my soul
For all eternity

Instrumental with strings

Bridge

If the road ahead is like an endless minefield
Explosions in your heart are gettin far too real
If you're down on your knees
And it won't go away
I'll turn your darkest fears into the light of day

Verse 4

I've seen you strung out
And left to bleed on the steps of your life
I know the pressure
Cut through your armour
Just like a knife

Chorus x 2

But you can walk on strong
And face the road ahead
Aware and alive, you are my friend
I'll support you, I'll nurture you
You matter to me
You are the depth of my soul
For all eternity

Yes, you can walk on strong
And face the road ahead
Aware and alive, you are my friend
I'll support you, I'll nurture you
You matter to me
You are the depth of my soul
For all eternity

You are the depth of my soul........
For all the world to see
