Track Name: Who's to Blame
So you thought you knew
that you could see right through
that I was the one
the only one to blame
for the lingering pain
and the falling rain.

Now here I stand
heart in my shaking hands
life trickling away
like grains of sand
another day will come
but all I do is run.

So you thought you knew
that you could see right through
that I was the one
the only one to blame
for the lingering pain
and the falling rain.

Now here I stand heart in my shaking hands
you seemed metres away
til I woke to find day
our moment will come
and dawn us too late
and only rain remains.

Only rain remains.

So you thought you knew
that you could see right through
that I was the one
the only one to blame
for the lingering pain
and the falling rain.
Track Name: Black Velvet (reprise)
I was walking through
He was talking to
Feel the sunshine on my face
Feel the sun shine on and on

Shine on shine on

Black velvet
wraps around me
Keeps the heat
of the night deep inside me

Deep inside me

Which way ought I to go
Down that long and lonesome road
Down that lonesome road...
Down.
Track Name: Big Sur
BIG SUR
I think of Big Sur
When I need to fall asleep
I think of Big Sur
Need more than counting sheep

I think of Big Sur
When I need to fall asleep
I think of Big Sur
Need more than counting sheep

Big Sur
You are all I need
When I need to fall asleep
I no longer count my sheep
Big Sur you are all I need

To dream a peaceful dream
I feel your salty breeze
To dream a peaceful dream
I feel your salty breeze
To dream peaceful dream
I feel your salty breeze
Track Name: Little Girl
LITTLE GIRL
there is a Little Girl
She sits at the window sill
there is a Little Girl
I see Her sometimes

there is a Little Girl
waiting and curious
She waves impatiently
reflects an old story

blunt fringe
straight hair
oriental eyes
black stare

there is a Little Girl
waiting and curious
She waves impatiently
reflects an old story

so in love with Her mother
the tears they don't even bother
what lies beneath the curtain
inside where She is certainly

fighting back tears
is this life
when will life begin

or is this it
Track Name: Leave
The cotton
wraps around
the wooden
stick to me
don't let go
don't leave me alone
in sorrow-filled
glass of
warm milk
for the cat.

Speed dial one
and speak to me.

You've locked you
in a cube
you're blocking
me from all
view the photo
on the mantle
above the flame
I see through
I feel through.

Many days of scrabbling words
with you.

In your white car
leaving tracks
down the drive
down the drive
drive away
drive away.

Goodbye
dear blood of mine.
Track Name: Finish Line
The Finish Line has come

Where do we run?
