Track Name: Love Come Down
Let the fire fall, let love come down
Let the thunder roar, let it shake the ground
Let lightening strike and heaven call
Let love come down let the fire fall

From the rising sun to the fading light
From the western front to the eastern heights
To the lonely house to the big old town
Let the fire fall let love come down

On the working man and the vagabond
On the child who longs for a peaceful home
On the oppressed and the beaten down
Let the fire fall let love come down

Let it burn, let it burn, let it set our hearts on fire
Let it burn, let it burn, let it set our hearts on fire

On the prophet and on the sinner man
On the soldier fighting in Afghanistan
On the refugee and the high and proud
Let the fire fall let love come down

On the unredeemed and the broken heart
On the unknown saint and the superstar
On the black the white and the red and brown
Let the fire fall let love come down
Track Name: I Cant Make You Walk
I can build for you a road
Lay the tar and break the stone
Cut the turf up golden brown
Until the road has been laid down
But I can’t make you walk
I can’t make you walk

I can make for you a path
Through the woods to greener grass
Across the moorland and the down
That takes you on to higher ground

But I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
No I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
That up to you

I’ll build a stair for you to climb
Close to heavens highest heights
Way above the darkest clouds
And the storms of life itself
But I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
No I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk

And I could lead you on your way
And keep your demons hard at bay
And whisper gently in your ear
Words that chase away your fears
And I could help you dream of things
That make you want to live again
And I can even take your habd
And give you strength to make you stand
But I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
No I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
Track Name: Common Language
I saw the things you wrote today
A status with a worried face
Two hands saying we should pray
You didn’t need to spell it out
For me to see how things are now
You said all you had to say
And if I could I’d put my arms around you
Just so you would know I care about you

We all speak a common language
Think we can’t but be can
It’s written into what we are
Seas and mountains may divide us
Something deep inside unites us
Makes us human to the heart

Your eyes say more than any words
And there’s no richer sound on earth
Than when a beating heart begins
When your life begins break
I feel the crashing sound it makes
And I will hold you if I can
Love is more than words and beyond any language
And love is all we need to to reach across the boundries

When I see you cry
You know that I’ll cry with you
And if you dance
I’ll hear your song and I’ll be dancing too

Track Name: Your Love
There’s an ocean I could drown in
There’s a sky where I can fall
There’s a light I would be found in
Where no darkness hides at all

There’s peace thet I can erst in
There is rest beyond these shores
A peace that passes understanding
Where I begin to know you more

Your Love
Your love
Is the anchor for my soul
Your love
Your love
Will never let me go


There’s a fire I can dance in
That will set my heart aflame
There’s a tide I see advancing
That will carry me away

There’s a road that I must travel
But I don’t walk alone
Through valleys and over plateaus
That I know will lead me home

Track Name: Pride Of Place
It was 1936 when she sailed to distant shores
Proud to be among the few chosen to perform
For king and country that she loved and the flag that she held dear
Full of grace she took her place and made her allegiance clear

She took pride of place with the ones
Who set unblinking eyes upon the race that would be run
And her courage and commitment were the medals that she won
As she followed in the footsteps of Olympians

The youngest of her countrymen she wore her colours proud
In the stadium of champions she danced before the crowds
And evil didn’t shake the hand of victory that day
The young Olympians stood up and looked oppression in the face

A tense anticipation killed the calm before the storm
And fickle peace could not deny the gathering clouds of war
Though one mans twisted fancy was dealt a blow that day
There were echoes of a future and a price that would be paid

On a shelf in the front room now are the memories in a frame
A medal and a ribbon and the place she signed he name
Along with twenty seven more who gladly made a stand
In the darkening days before a war they became Olympians

Track Name: Sunshine On The Hill
There are shadows in the valley
Where our tired feet must go
But we hear the gentle waters
As they whisper soft and low
And our shepherd whispers gently
As he leads us onward still
There are shadows in the valley
But it’s sunshine on the hill

There are shadows in the valley
But we breathe the sweet perfume
Of the roses on the mountain
In their lovely vernal bloom
And again our shepherd whispers
As He leads us onward still
There are shadows in the valley
But it’s sunshine on the hill

Sunshine on the hill
There is sunshine on the hill
There are shadows in the valley
But it’s sunshine on the hill

Oh the shadows in the valley
Like a dream will pass away
They will vanish in the dawning
Of a bright and glorious day
Even now we hear the echoes
And we feel it’s magic thrill
There are shadows in the valley
But it’s sunshine on the hill

Track Name: Without Your Fire
Without your fire
I’m a barren man
Cold desire
And empty hands
No solid ground
Where I can stand
Without your fire
I’m a barren man


Without you love I’m a tuneless song
Walking blind all my day long
And it counts as naught what I have done
Without your love I’m a tuneless song

So light a fire
In my soul
Let it burn
Let it glow
And forge desire like liquid gold


Without your fire my life is dark
And all my plans fall apart
And there’s no glory and life is vain
Without your fire I’m a barren man

Track Name: Fearful and Wonderfuly
Your thoughts are too marvellous for me
You hear every word I say
Before I get the chance to speak
And there’s no-where that I can hide away
You see my every shadow
You are my brightest day

I’m fearfully and wonderfully made
Every breath I take is a gift
And though my life is life the spray
On a storm tossed wave
To you my life is treasure
And I’m fearfully and wonderfully made


The stars in the heavens sing your praise
And there’s no song that I can bring
To match the anthem that they raise
But you stoop down to listen at my door
And despite my feeble effort
You say you want to know me more
Track Name: Love Shouts Louder
It says in the bible
Jesus Christ is Lord
And every tongue will say it's so
And men and angels
Will join in one accord
And every knee will be bowed low
And all the heavens
Will declare his majesty
And the earth be filled with light
But from where I'm standing
It's feels too dark to see
In this fragile thread of time that we call life

There's been a lot of preaching about how to change the world
And a lot of good things have been said
But if it's all just talk then it's all just empty words
And whatever faith I have is as good as dead
A man once said tell the good news to the world
And let your actions be your words
So I pray for courage yo step out of the crowd
And let what I do spread some love to the world

I don't think I could ever change the world
That's to big a job for me
I'm just trying to shed a little light
To help a man in darkness see

I heard that Jesus, he’s a friend of mine
He hung around with guys like me
Despite the dirt that I carry in my life
And all the messed up places I’ve been
So I’m trying to open up my arms
Show some Jesus to the world
Just like Jesus opened up his arms for me
With a love that shouts louder than any words

Track Name: Do Justice
Is there such a thing
As inner peace
If there is I’m gonna find it
I’m gonna find it
Is there such a thing
As a perfect life
If there is I’m gonna chase it
I’m gonna chase it

All this world has given me is empty promises
That come to nothing so I’ll leave it all for this

And
Do justice
Love mercy
Walk humbly
Walk humbly

Is there such a thing
As a perfect world
If there is we’ve got to build it
We’ve got to make it

Even if the way is
Stained with blood and tears
Even then we’ve got to take it
We’ve got to take it

Love affairs with worldly cares
Wont keep us any younger
So I’ll leave it all and give my life away

And
Do justice
Love mercy
And walk humbly

Track Name: Streets Of This Town (10th Anniversary)
No-one stops the sun from shining

No matter what they try

And no-one stops the rain from falling

To wash the tears from our eyes

They can push, they can shove, they can kick

They can try and knock us down

But we will rise with hope and pride on the streets
On the streets of this town

And all of our hopes
All of our promises

All of our dreams are in you
On the streets of this town

We can’t turn the hands of time

To wash the pain away

But we can learn that clouded skies

Can clear again to a brighter day

You took all our tears and all our pain

And you carried them down

Every road and every avenue

Every street, every street of this town

Track Name: Dancing With Seagulls (Anniversary Mix)
Down by the prom lights and under the peer
The lads would be smoking and drowning in beer
Just up above them Pavilion Hall
Old folk would gather, having a ball

The town would be busy some Friday nights
There’d always be discos and always be fights
But over the pebbles where the sand meets the sea
Dancing with Seagulls is where I would be

Dancing with seagulls was my favorite game
It captured my idle thoughts and numbed the pain
Of the long lonely evenings, I would be free
Dancing with seagulls as they danced with me

The sand was our dance floor soft underfoot
We danced by the light of the low-lying moon
The music the song that my dance partners made
And time would stand still as we danced and we played


So much has happened since I was kid
The memories fade of the things that I did
But dancing with seagulls those long lonely nights
Will live to remind m the ret of my life
Of the pain an the hurting of not being free
And the long lonely search for what really was me
And now that I’ve found him and now that I’m free
I remember the dancing, the seagulls and me
