Tracklist & Lyrics

  1. Never Land

    Come morning I'll be gone
    Back to the land where dreams and Tinkerbell were born
    Past the clock tower second star to the right
    And we'll fly straight ahead onto morning

    Never Never Land
    Never Never Land

    Dreams were dashed so quickly and the lost boys were sold
    For the trinkets and the beads that adults hold
    You left your window open for Peter Pan to fly back
    But the curtains of your childhood were closed

    Never Never Land Never Never Land

    Because lost boys are like lost souls
    They try to act tough yet cry when they fall
    Lost boys are like lost souls
    We all miss our mums in

    Never Never Land
    Never Never Land
    Never Never Land
    Never Never Land

  2. Huckleberry Finn

    You are a man yet they call you boy
    We're travellers travel down the river

    You are a boy yet they call you sir
    We're travelling in our darkened night disguise

    We're best of friends the future is unwritten
    Ships passing by like paper tigers in the night

    And they say that we're not friends
    And they tell us we're too different
    But when I fell you carried me
    You cried and they took you away
    Said you had murdered me

    Into the fray freedom don't come easy
    Night turns to day burns my back like lashes bleed

    I feel your hands holding me so gently
    Lifting me up high above the water line

    And they say that we're not friends
    And they tell us we're too different
    But when I fell you carried me
    And they couldn't tell the difference between us in the dark
    Couldn't tell the difference

    And they say that we're not friends
    And they tell us we're too different
    But when I fell you carried me
    You cried and they locked you away
    Said you had murdered me

    And what was it you always said
    It's such a shame we must pretend this way
    And Lord knows the sun will shine
    On these tired paths we've travelled down

  3. Little Fish

    Lonely people stand in a line outside your door
    Hold onto their little worlds
    Little fish flourish in the world between their legs
    Suspended by their stomachs

    Bye bye my little fish swim away into the night
    Join the stars and touch the sky

    Scared girls stand in a line outside your door
    Offering you their bodies
    Take away this shame that's attached its life to me
    Crawled up in the night

    Bye bye my little fish swim away into the night
    Join the stars and touch the sky

    Bye bye my little fish swim away into the night
    Join the stars and kiss the sky

    Kiss the sky kiss the sky kiss the sky
    Oh kiss the sky

    And we say
    Bye bye my little fish swim away into the night
    Join the stars and kiss the sky

  4. Grey

    Give me your hand tell me how you feel
    I am not so cold I am not so cold
    Paint your canvas grey
    Grey like the clouds that hang over our heads
    Will hang over our headstones too too

    'Cos if this was right man the world wouldn't stop us
    If it was right it wouldn't feel so wrong
    Wouldn't feel so wrong
    If it was cool four horsemen couldn't stop us
    If it was cool it wouldn't feel so wrong
    Wouldn't feel so wrong

    So give me your hand tell me how you feel
    I am not so cold I am not so cold I am not so cold
    Paint your canvas grey
    Grey like the clouds that hang over our heads
    Will hang over our headstones too

    'Cos if this was right man the world wouldn't stop us
    if it was right it wouldn't feel so wrong
    Wouldn't feel so wrong
    If it was good the seven plagues couldn't stop us
    If it was good it wouldn't feel so wrong
    Wouldn't feel so wrong

    Cause I know your feeling scared
    But all leaps feel this way

    Cause man your right

    It wouldn't feel wrong
    Wouldn't feel so wrong
    It wouldn't feel so wrong
    Wouldn't feel so wrong

  5. Teddy's Song

    There's a path that I take when I'm going home
    My teddy always walks it with his paw in my own
    It's a skip and a hop and a jump across the river
    Where the currents play leapfrog with the shore

    My teddy always wants to stop along the way
    He's always saying that I walk too fast
    So we sit along the shoreline dreaming our dreams
    As our friends play music in the waves

    He says life's too short to work away
    He hopes I never grow old and work every day
    He says some kids my age have thrown their teddies away
    I say Teddy you're my teddy to stay

    Better put your best foot forward
    Best you be my comrade in arms

    There's a road that I drive when I'm going home
    With Teddy in the front seat I don't feel so alone
    I say Teddy you're my teddy wherever you are is my home
    You and I are finally sailing away

    On those friendly waves where the fairies play
    Where all of our friends are going to some day
    There'll never be a reason for us to be afraid
    With a ship and my first mate at the helm

    Better put your best foot forward
    Best you be my comrade in arms
    Arms oh...

  6. Battle

    Don't speak I already know what you're saying
    You're leaving me
    Out here in the middle of it
    And I know we all have our own journey
    And sometimes we only meet briefly

    Trees push they push down on me
    Like gods forcing me aside
    Pulling my strings and forcing me into battle

    I know I can't win but I will fight for you
    You will bear no wounds
    We won't bear together

    So don't cry it's only a brief parting
    We need this to make our own way and grow
    Learn to fight our own fears alone

    'Cos I know I can't win but I will fight for you
    You will bear no wounds we won't bare together
    I know I can't win but I'll never give up on you
    You will feel no pain we won't bear together

  7. Dorothy

    Don't be afraid we're going far far far from here
    Click those ruby red's click them together and fly away

    Fly away Dorothy fly away yeah Dorothy
    Is it too late now what about Tin Man's heart
    Dorothy is it too late now what about Tin Man's heart

    'Cos home is very far past the trees and the poppy fields
    But you are very brave you just haven't realised yet

    So fly away oh Dorothy fly away Dorothy
    Is it too late now what about Tin Man's heart
    Dorothy is it too late now what about Tin Man's heart

    So fly away yeah Dorothy fly away yeah Dorothy
    Is it too late now what about Tin Man's heart
    Dorothy is it too late now what about Tin Man's heart

    Yeah

  8. Don't Fly Too Long

    Wake up the rainy days are passing
    So release your balloons and let them fly away

    Fly away like paper aeroplanes
    That crumple so easily and wither if we fly too long
    No don't fly too long

    Shake with the wind and the strain and the pressure
    That comes from above
    To weigh us down and make us heavy
    Like the wind howling and our own perspiration

    So no don't fly too long
    The wax melts on our wings
    'Til we feel our bodies falling to the angry sea

    So no don't fly too long don't fly too long

    Don't fly too long... don't fly too long... don't fly too long
    Don't fly too long... don't fly too long... don't fly too long
    Don't fly too long... don't fly too long... don't fly too long
    Don't fly too long... don't fly too long... don't fly too long

  9. Fragile Red

    I've been holding you
    I've been holding you
    Fragile fragile red

    I've been loving loving you
    I've been loving you
    Fragile fragile red

    Ah yeah

    I've been watching you
    I've been watching you
    Fragile fragile red

  10. Maybe This Is Love

    When I'm feeling lonely
    I think of you and I feel better
    When I'm feeling sad
    I think of you and I know what to do

    Maybe this is love

    Maybe this is love

    Maybe this is love

    When my plans go crashing

    I think of you and I feel better

    When my life ain't working

    I think of you and I know what to do

    Yeah

    Maybe this is love
    Maybe this is love
    Maybe this is love yeah
    Maybe this is love
    Maybe this love
    Maybe this is love
    Maybe
