Track Name: Take It Away
Why's the world so cold,
When we need each other,
All the lies you sold,
Gone with the wind

Why's the world so cold,
When we need each other,

Too many people suffer, for no reason at all,
Too many sisters and brothers, and no-one hears them call,
So open your eyes, to the hurt,
Tread on and try and push through,
Now the wells run dry, help a brother make things right

Why's the world so cold,
When we need each other,
All the lies you sold,
Gone with the wind

Why's the world so cold,
When we need each other,

Hold you down, hold you down,
Keep your mouth shut, or we can speak out loud,
Well there's no garuntee of what's to come,
Unless we gather one by one,
So open your eyes, yeah
No time to be blind to the world,
We can help them try, to regain their lives

Why's the world so cold,
When we need each other,
All the lies you sold,
Gone with the wind

Why's the world so cold,
When we need each other,

(Take away, take away, you won't take away, take away from me)
This is our world, this is our world,
And you won't take it away, no you won't take it away from me
(Take away, take away, you won't take away, take away from me)
After all I've seen, no you won't have no hold on me,
No you won't take it away, no you won't take it away from me
(Take away, take away, you won't take away, take away from me)
This is our world, this is our world,
And you won't take it away, no you won't take it away

Take away, take away, you won't take away, take away from..

Take it away,
Take it away,
Take it away,
Take it away.
Track Name: One Step Two Step
She said,
Have patience, but am I to wait all night?
Wait on you, so I,
Take a breath, step out of the room,
Have I been waiting too long, or is this all too soon?

But if it ain't for you, my love
Better find your way,
Better one step two step,
Said if it ain't for you, my love
Watch me play

Better one step two step
Ain't nothing left for me, yeah

She said,
She got dealt the heavy foot,
Well some things will never change,
'cuz if you're looking at it like I do,
The colours fade away,
Take a breath, step out of the room,
Have I been waiting too long, or is this all too soon?

But if it ain't for you, my love
Better find your way,
Better one step two step,
Said if it ain't for you, my love
Watch me play

Better one step two step
Ooo, yeah
Sitting on the fence never made no sense no,
Never made no sense to me, yeah
Sense to me, yeah
Sitting on the fence never made no sense at all

I won't wait on your love,
I won't wait on your love,
If I'm not good enough,
I won't wait on your love

(Found your loving, hard to love)
I won't wait on your love,
(Found your loving, hard to love)
I won't wait on your love,
(Found your loving, hard to love)
If I'm not good enough,
(Found your loving, hard to love)
I won't wait on your love

Found your loving, hard to love
Found your loving, hard to love
Found your loving, hard to love
Found your loving, hard to love
Track Name: Only Love
When I try to do right,
Only seem to do wrong,
Try as hard as I might, yeah
But there's nothing to hold on to,
Take it easy on me,
Take it easy on me,

Tired of carrying this weight on my shoulder,
Found my worth I won't wait no longer,
No there ain't no turning back now,
Love alone makes the soul grow stronger,
Don't you see?
Only love, love alone, yeah
Only love, love alone, yeah

Ooo, ooo
Guess I pulled the joker,
Ooo, ooo

Colour wrong into right,
Seen the dark for too long,
But it's clear in my mind, yeah
That there's one thing we belong to,
Now the time feels right for us to make a move,
Feel it, don't you feel it?

Tired of carrying this weight on my shoulder,
Found my worth I won't wait no longer,
No there ain't no turning back now,
Love alone makes the soul grow stronger,
Don't you see?
Only love, love alone, yeah
Only love, love alone, yeah

Ooo, ooo
Guess I pulled the joker,
Ooo, ooo,
From the hand of a thousand kings,
Ooo, ooo
Guess I pulled the joker,

Tired of carrying this weight on my shoulder,
Found my worth I won't wait no longer,
No there ain't no turning back now,
Love alone makes the soul grow stronger,
Don't you see?
Only love, love alone, yeah
Only love.
Track Name: I Feel Like I Know
Keep it ticking right on time,
Knowing it's the finest of lines,
But if there's no love, then what's to love?
Said if there ain't love, then what's to love?

I feel like I know,
I feel like I know.

Got to keep an open mind,
Try to see the world through all eyes,
But if there's no love, then what's to love?
Said if there ain't love, then what's to love?

I feel like I know,
I feel like I...

Hanging on to strength inside,
'cuz hurt is such a powerful ride,
But when is enough, really enough?
Said when is enough, finally enough?

I feel like I know,
I feel like I know,

Can't live on just words and no feeling,
You could be bringing out the worst in me, yeah,
So what's there to believe in?
My mind isn't sold, despite what you throw at me,
Nothing will change, nothing will change,
Unless we learn how to live again,

I feel like I know,
I feel like I know,

When it all gets too much, and you've had enough, tired of being left on your own,
I know that it's rough, but there's no giving up, just hold on to the good that you own,
We all feel it, inside,
We all feel it.
