Track Name: What Isn't Mine
I throw a rock into the sea
I throw a rock into the sea
and it keeps coming
it keeps coming
back to me

I can see far but never reach
I can see far but never reach
and people won't ever
people won't ever
reach me

Where a beggar meets a pretty girl
Where the oceans touch the sky
will I finally find my voice to speak
I guess I cannot have what isn't mine

I built a house where I could be
I built a house where I could be
but it keeps crashing
it keeps crashing
down on me

Where a beggar meets a pretty girl
Where the oceans touch the sky
will I finally find my voice to speak
I guess I cannot have what isn't mine
Track Name: Moving On, New Morning
How far can I go
from the edge of what I know
and if I go back could it ever
be the same

O the wind, the wind it blows
could he take me to the coast
and put me on a ship
I would just sail away

Moving on, new morning

How deep must we fall
to understand that we had it all
and if not now how can we ever
be happy

Take that tiny little thing
it holds a whole new world within
but then nothing's for free, no in the end you'll have to
pay it all back

Moving on, new morning

O Vanessa hold me tight
will you stay with me tonight
right here in your arms
I could forget about it all
Track Name: Blue Sky
Out of the gray and into the blue
we're heading out to find something new
I dreamt of a man, building a bridge right out of his nose
now she is the first to come across, the first who knows

Blue sky
I think we are just the same
as you hide behind the rain
Blue sky

O giant tree, I am your son
O giant tree, can we become one
I dreamt of a boy, wounded in hatred but blindly in love
poor little thing, if you could have seen things from one step above

Blue sky
I think we are just the same
as you hide behind the rain
till it's gone and then
Blue Sky
won't you come with us today
to the riverside, hangin' out
in the sun, just for the day

And if you then wake up in the morning sun
forever you hear that precious tune
and you lift up your head into the open sky
just lift up your head into the open sky
Track Name: Riverman
In the land of golden trees
where the wind sings it's melodies
lives a man on the shore
with no need for more

And he sleeps on the riverside
with his silent mind open wide
he hears what they mean
the voices of the stream

So read my reflections
and hear what they're whispering for
take me to your river
teach me to worry no more

Not a story that's not been told
the man keeps growing old
and he sees it all as one
in the water, in the sun

In the land of fallen leaves
lives a man underneath the trees
and he'll take me when he goes
wherever the water flows

So read my reflections
and hear what they're whispering for
take me to your river
teach me to worry no more
Track Name: Give Love Away
Well you, you feel that something around you is changing
but you, no you can't quite figure out what it is
for the life inside your head is well trained in money things instead
have you ever tried to lock them out the door?

And your gardener tries his best to keep your flowers bright in bloom
but somehow nothing ever wants to grow behind your room

Just give love away
give love away
give love away, hear what I say
forever and a day

And then one day you'll wake up and you'll find yourself slowly dying
and all you could ever think of was buying and buying and buying
your life's just like a smoker's cough, boy you can never get enough
and when times get rough all the stuff that you own ain't it just owning you

Do you still believe in all their hypocritic lies?
you shouldn't complain about it anymore

Just give love away
give love away
give love away, hear what I say
forever and a day

Have you lost your faith in love and music?
have you lost your faith in Rock n' Roll?

Just give love away
give love away
give love away, do as I say
forever and a day
