Track Name: Green Tea
Moods like this define gravity,
Put down your pint, have a mug of green tea...
smoothie 'stead of a daiquiri, 'stead of ma redbull, I'll drink a prudery's...
The simplest things in life that make me sing, but love is the only thing that gives me wings...

WHEN I'M NOT RIGHT WITH YOU, I'M NOT RIGHT WITH MY WORLD,
WHEN I'M NOT RIGHT WITH YOU, COLDEST FIRE BURNS,
WHEN I'M NOT RIGHT WITH YOU, I'M NOT RIGHT WITH LIFE, IM NOT RIGHT WITH MY SIGHT AND I'M NOT RIGHT WITH MY DRIVE...
AND WHEN I'M NOT RIGHT WITH YOU I FAIL TO SEE MY LIGHT SURVIVE....WHEN I'M NOT RIGHT, JUST NOT RIGHT, JUST NOT RIGHT....

So I take a pinch of reality,
and add it to the person that I believe I could be...
'Cos I have learnt that there are truths to see, so many a lesson has come to stand right before me... and the simplest things in life that make me dance, when I'm in love with the world I live in romance...

(CHORUS)
Track Name: East to West
Said her mind was like her mother's, only half dressed... half a world away from being her best...
Yen to dollar, business over pleasure...Why do you bother?? Ya Trial and error lover...

MY HEART IS THE EAST BUT MY HEADS ON BUISSINESS IN THE WEST, SUNRISE TO SUNSET... x2

Said her sense of time was like her father's... he'd be late for his own death, The world doesn't stop for you to make mysticisms out of what is said.... oh why do you bother?? when your a trial and error lover ??

(CHORUS)

So she knows she lives for her brothers, lives for her sisters... a place in it all and a place in this world... balanced is her heart and mind, balanced is her heart and mine.... This is why life has taught her to be kind...

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Seaside Song
See these people ?? They talk in tongues, while they seem to know a lot yeah... and if the writer has his tools to write, let me have my own... yeah.

OH I DO, LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE,
OH I DO, LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEA,
OH I DO, LIKE TO STROLE ALONE,
IN A PLACE A TEMPORARY HOME...

and I see these people, cos they know the tide times,
they've been here while, so much longer than I, longer than I, but I do, yeah I like to be... oh beside the sea, beside the sea...

(CHORUS + 'cos it's my, temporary home..)

oh I do like to be beside the seaside....
oh I do like to be beside the sea,
oh I do like to strole along the prom, prom, prom...
Where the band plays....
Track Name: One Love
There are just so many monsters in the world,
that's why I deal my harshest words with love...
and like an arrow to a target, and the dealing of cards it has aim, play and chance, it has luck, wins and hardships and....

For all this beauty this bad seed shows like an amethyst,
for all this beauty, this bad seed shows like an amethyst held tight in my fist, trapped in my fist...

So I, drink, swim and wash myself in the water,
for now with that bad taste it's the only thing I'm after....
I drink, swim, and wash myself in the water for now... the only thing I'm after is....

ONE LOVE, ONE LOVE, ONE LOVE.... (x2)

This, my hardest lesson... born of your hands in times like there have been it seems easier to wash them, wash them clean 'cos I lose you more often than I should, I lose you more often than I should... the devil, yes I know him quite well 'cos he lived inside me too....

So I drink, swim and wash myself in the water,
for now with that bad taste it's the only thing I'm after...
I drink, swim and wash myself in the water for now the only thing I'm after is....

ONE LOVE, ONE LOVE, ONE LOVE....
Track Name: Nomad
I am a nomad, wandering soul,
deserts, streets and pavements and lonely country roads...
I 'am the poorest and the richest soul, with stories swapped and sold, I 'am the moment when you are too young and times you feel to old....

All these faiths I have to choose and I choose all and none the same,
but I feel the hand of life as it opens and closes once again,
I 'am the flowers and the cloudy skies, but nothing do I own...
I 'am the reason you had an empty tank, but somehow you got home...

AND THE DAYS FLY BY, AND THE WEEKS THEY TURN THE SEASONS, CHANGING COLOURS IN THE SKY, AND THE YEARS DANCE BY ALRIGHT... LIKE THE SPARKLE AND THE FREEDOM IN OUR WANDERING EYES....

If I could learn from the elders, while in this Babylon I roam, I'd take nothing but a pebble from every place I go...
Keep them close, from coast to coast, colour, creed and claw, 'till I feel the weight of every place and I'd be wandering no more....

For I am a nomad, wandering soul...
deserts, streets and pavements and lonely country roads... I 'm the poorest and the richest soul of silver and of gold, I 'am the stain and the trace that I leave upon this world....

(CHORUS)

I 'am the reason why you lost your love, and love had lost you too,
I 'am the reason why karma is coming after you,
I have, 4 legs in the morning, 2 throughout the day,
3 by the night time, and teeth that are made of clay,
and I am the signal in your brain that says, when its time to go I am the peace that you feel when you are free, free at the end of it all...
(at the end, at the end of it all....)

(CHORUS)

I 'am a nomad, wandering soul....
