Track Name: Seagulls
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

(Chorus)
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
Track Name: I Can't Make You Walk
I can build for you a road
Lay the tar and break the stone
Dig the dirt 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 onto higher ground

But I can’t make you, I can’t make you walk
I can’t make you, I can’t make you walk
That’s up to you

I’ll make a stair for you to climb
As high as heaven’s highest heights
Far above tha darkest clouds
And the storms of life itself


And I will lead you on your way
Change you darkness into day
Whisper gently in your ear
Words that take away your fear
And I can help you dream of things
That make you want to live again
And I can even take your hand
And give you strength to make you stand

But I can’t make you, I can’t make you walk
I can’t make you, I can’t make you walk
That’s up to you
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
