Track Name: Shake
I just cannot compare to you – so beautiful
I just can't do the things you do – so wonderful

And I will shake, 'cause the sky's gonna fall
when I come to my senses and realise that everything I'm doing is a waste
Of the breath in my lungs, of the songs I have sung
Of the voice I have been given just to speak my own truth

Huh huh!

I need a change of policy – so personal
I need a set of new beliefs - I’ve been too comfortable

And I will break down the words in my head
I'm allowed to be sad, but I'm not allowed to be so cruel to the only one
who was here from the start, who will always remain
I have pushed her away, now I have got to win her back

Huh huh!

The roof of this great house is surely falling down

Huh huh!

Can you feel the earth quake with the knowledge to come?
I can feel in my bones It will tear me apart and reconfigure me and then
if I look in your eyes,and I don’t see the truth, or a person like me,
then I have got to start again

Huh huh!

Can you feel it, feel the earth, Can you feel it, feel the earth…

Can you feel it, feel the earth, can you feel the earth, feel the earth...

SHAKE!
Track Name: Count
1, 2; only me, only you
3, 4; it's raining outside, hold the door
Oh don't go! Gently cutting through the fray
Oh don't go! I'm feeling kind of lonely, won't you stay?
10, 9; 8 O'clock, yeah, that'd be fine
Oh 9, 10; it's time to see you off again
but don't go gentle into that good night,
oh don't go! 'Cause I'll be out of sight and out of mind

Doo doo doo doo doo...

2, 3; I know you never think of me
That's okay, I'm scared to love you anyway
but I want you; I want to touch, I've got to know
I want you! I'm too afraid to ask you not to go

Doo doo doo doo doo...
(Well if I had courage, If I were beautiful
Well I would say something, I would say anything)

1, 1, 2, what is the goddamn thing about you?
3, 3, 4, why can't I let you walk out the door?
4, 4, 5, some call it living, some being alive
5, 5, 6, a million ways to leave me, take your pick

8, 9; light the fire, pour the wine
Stay with me, and sing until it's two or three
Then don't go just because the embers die
No, don't go, stay with me and tell me pretty lies

Doo doo doo doo doo...
(La la la la la la...)

Stay with me; Stay with me
Track Name: Cervantes
There must be something I can take
To help me bend before I break
Doctor, take your needle, isn't that what you're for?
I'll lie still; just promise me no more

I want to walk through that front door
And see his books lined up once more
Oh my bold Cervantes, I am lost!

The world is full of blame, 'cos there's a cost
To living with the bones under your skin

Dust and ashes, bury him deep
And do not wait as he sleeps – he won't rise
So don't stay by his side
Peace; and nothing now but the clay
And memories of the days
Sitting at home
Standing by the fire
waiting for the end

Oh Doctor, Doctor please be kind
Silence my rage and numb my mind
Stop their pious praying, get it out of my face
And let him go; et him go
Track Name: Codhladh Sámh
Cogar liom, Ó ná éirigh a stóir
Tá sé dainsearach lasmuigh.
Cogar liom, ná tabhair aird ar na ndeora,
Ó tá sé contúirteach san domhan mór mílteannach sin

Tá na coillte trí thine anocht
Tá deatach dubh dorcha ag fás
Níl mé clíste, no saibhir no bocht
Ach níl aon rud fagtha anseo

A chara, a chara, cá bhfuil tú imithe?
Tá farraige folamha eadrann anois
Súile dubha, tá gach gné duit athrithe
Ó bháigh tú mo chara le fearg agus éad
'gus tá tú grammaithe le chéile le tairní agus téid

Ní tógfaidh mé an mílleán, níl ormsa an locht
Níor dhíol mé mo anam i gcomhair beagánín cumacht,
Ach fós - fós - tá faitíos orm go lasfinn d'aon bhflam
Ó tógfainn ar ais é, ach níl mé in ndann, tá mé dóite

Le tairní agus téid...
Track Name: Geneva
It came as a whisper; It came as a sigh
“Where are we now, and where will we go?”

“I’ll do what you want, if you’ll only just name it;
So what do you want?” I do not know

Can’t I just sleep? I have nothing to wake for
‘Cause that intimate question cut me right to the core

So I’ll toss and I’ll turn until I have the answer
“What do you want?” I do not know
