Track Name: September Rain
SWEET SEPTEMBER RAIN
FALLING DOWN
WASH AWAY THE PAIN OF ALL MY YESTERDAYS
SOMETIMES I JUST WONDER
WHAT MORE COULD I HAVE DONE?
TAKE YOU BY THE HAND
LEAD YOU TO THE SUN?
BUT WOULD YOU EVER HAVE PLAYED THAT PART?
WOULD YOU HAVE LET IT GO?
ALL I KNOW IS YOU BROKE MY HEART
I NEVER LET IT SHOW

CAN YOU HEAR ME THROUGH THE DARKNESS?
I’M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME
MY HEART IS HEAVY WITH THIS SADNESS
WE’LL NEVER MEET AGAIN.

STANDING AT THE STATION
I WAS WATCHING YOU LEAVE
RUSHING AWAY FROM ALL YOUR YESTERDAYS
PEOPLE SAID YOUR BROTHER
HE JUST WANTS TO HAVE FUN
TO CLIMB OUT FROM THE SHADOWS
PLAY OUT IN THE SUN
BUT YOU WOULD NEVER PLAY THAT PART
YOU NEVER LET IT GO
NOW I HAVE MY BROKEN HEART
AND YOU WILL NEVER KNOW

CAN YOU HEAR ME THROUGH THE DARKNESS?
I’M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME
MY HEART IS HEAVY WITH THIS SADNESS
I WON’T SEE YOU AGAIN

CALLING OUT
CALLING OUT YOUR NAME
CALLING OUT
CALLING OUT YOUR NAME
CALLING OUT
I’M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME…

Track Name: Pictures of Lanark (feat Wily Bo Walker and Louise Ward)
I THOUGHT THAT WE WERE FOREVER
NOTHING WOULD TEAR US APART
IT SEEMS TO ME YOU NEVER READ THAT SCRIPT
AND YOU LEFT ME WITH MY BROKEN HEART
NOW TIME AND SPACE HAVE COME BETWEEN US
THERE’S A WALL THAT KEEPS US APART
AND ALL THE WORDS THAT I HAVE WRITTEN, DARLIN
CAN’T TAKE US BACK IN TIME TO THE START

SO WHEN YOU’RE OLD AND GREY AND FEELING TIRED
AS WILLIAM BUTLER ONCE REMARKED
I HOPE YOU THINK OF ME WITH A SMILE ON YOUR FACE
AND DREAM ANOTHER TIME IN ANOTHER PLACE…

COS I DREAM THE DREAM I DREAM WITHOUT YOU
I LIVE MY LIFE DAY TO DAY
I THINK OF YOU WHEN I AM LON-E-LY
AND WHEN THOSE GODDAM THINGS
DON’T GO MY WAY
AND THOUGH THE YEARS HAVE COME BETWEEN US
SOMETHING STILL BURNS IN MY HEART
AND I CAN’T HELP ADMITTING TO MYSELF
THAT IT DRAWS ME BACK IN TIME TO THE START

SO WHEN YOU’RE OLD AND GREY AND FEELING TIRED
AS WILLIAM BUTLER ONCE REMARKED
I HOPE YOU THINK OF ME WITH A SMILE ON YOUR FACE
AND DREAM ANOTHER TIME IN ANOTHER PLACE…

Track Name: Who's Kissing You?
I’M SITTING IN A BAR
ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE TOWN
I’M WONDERIN’ WHERE YOU ARE
‘COS I DON’T SEE YOU AROUND
I’M WONDERIN’ WHO’S ARMS YOU’RE IN
WHO’S HOLDING YOU SO TIGHT
I’M WONDERIN’ WHO’S KISSIN’ YOU TONIGHT?

SITTING IN THIS BAR, I GOT EVERYTHIN’ I NEED
THERE’S WHISKY IN MY JAR
BUT MY OLD HEART JUST BLEEDS
I’M WONDERIN’ WHO’S ARMS YOU’RE IN
WHO’S HOLDING YOU SO TIGHT
I’M WONDERIN’ WHO’S KISSIN’ YOU TONIGHT?


WHAT’S HE GONNA SAY TO YOU
TO MAKE YOU FEEL ALRIGHT?
WHAT KIND OF LIES DO YOU TELL
TO MAKE IT ALL SEEM RIGHT?
HOW’S HE GONNA GET YOU THROUGH
THIS LONG AN’ LONELY NIGHT?
OH DARLIN’ WHO’S KISSIN’ YOU TONIGHT?

Track Name: I Will Be There
COMES A TIME IN OUR LIVES
WHEN WE ALL NEED THAT LITTLE SOMEONE
A SHOULDER TO CRY ON
A LITTLE HUG THROUGH THE NIGHT…

WHEN ALL YOUR DREAMS HAVE FADED
OR COME TO NOUGHT
WHEN THE GREY SKY FALLS ON YOUR BROKEN BACK
WHEN YOUR WHOLE WORLD CRUMBLES
AROUND AT YOUR FEET
GIRLS…
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU

WHEN YOU’RE LOST AND LONELY
YOU MAY BE DISTRAUGHT
WHEN ALL YOU CAN SEE
IS DARKNESS AND BLACK
WHEN YOU FEEL, WHEN YOU FEEL
THAT YOU LIVE ON AN EMPTY STREET
LADIES…
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU

I’LL BE THERE IF YOU WANT ME TO
HOLD YOUR HAND AND COMFORT YOU
CHASE THE BAD THINGS THAT MAKE YOU BLUE
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
I’LL BE THERE IF YOU WANT ME

WHEN THE NIGHT IS DARK
AND YOU’RE FULL OF FEAR
WHEN THE DEMONS, WHEN THOSE DEMONS
ARE HOWLING AT YOUR DOOR
WHEN YOUR HOPES ARE ALL DASHED
AND THE FUTURE LOOKS SO BLEAK
TELL THEM GIRLS…
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU

COULD BE YOU NEED SOMEONE
TO WIPE AWAY YOUR TEARS
COULD BE YOU NEED SOMEONE
TO PICK YOU OFF THE FLOOR
YOU MAY NEED, YOU MAY NEED
SOMEONE TO HEAR YOU SPEAK
OK LADIES…
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU

I’LL BE THERE IF YOU WANT ME TO
HOLD YOUR HAND AND COMFORT YOU
CHASE THE BAD THINGS THAT MAKE YOU BLUE
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
I’LL BE THERE IF YOU WANT ME

I’LL BE THERE IF YOU WANT ME TO
HOLD YOUR HAND AND COMFORT YOU
CHASE THE BAD THINGS THAT MAKE YOU BLUE
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
I’LL BE THERE IF YOU WANT ME…

Track Name: Bandolier / Prayer (feat. The Doune and Deanston Pipe Band)
THEY LED US DOWN TO THE RIVER  
THEY TOLD US TO BE TRUE       
THEY TOLD US AT THE RIVER 
TO PUT OUR FAITH IN YOU     
THEY SAID WE’D LIVE FOREVER
IF ONLY WE’D BELIEVE
THEY SAID THAT YOU’D DELIVER
BUT I KNOW WE’VE BEEN DECEIVED

YOU LEFT US DOWN AT THE RIVER
YOU BROKE OUR TRUST IN YOU
YOU TOOK US TO THE RIVER
WHERE WE LOST OUR FAITH IN YOU  
YOU SAID WE’D LIVE FOREVER
IF ONLY WE’D BELIEVE
THEY SAID THAT YOU’D DELIVER
BUT I KNOW WE’VE BEEN DECEIVED
 

VOICES OF DISSENT
LORD, ARE CRUSHED INTO THE GROUND
HARD RAINS A’FALLING
THERE’S NO SAVIOUR TO BE FOUND      
OUR CHOICES ARE ALL SPENT
LORD, WE JUST GET KICKED AROUND 
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO SAY
THERE’S NO HOPE HERE TO BE FOUND…

Track Name: Walking in the Past
I SAW YOU TONIGHT
ACROSS THIS CROWDED ROOM
YOUR EYES HELD THE GLINT
OF A FULL RED MOON
‘YOU’RE LOOKING STUNNING
IN THAT CRIMSON DRESS
AND AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, GIRL
THERE’S NO REGRETS’
YOU SAID ‘LIFE WAS BROKEN
WHEN THE DIE WAS CAST
THE THINGS YOU CALL MEMORIES
WEREN’T MEANT TO LAST
ALL SAID AND DONE
AND NOW THAT YOU’VE ASKED
I’M DOING FINE, LITTLE SUGAR
BUT YOU’RE JUST
WALKING IN THE PAST’

WELL I SAID, ‘HONEY I HAVE TO DISAGREE,
THAT PAST IS A’SPECIAL TO YOU AND TO ME
BACK THEN DARLIN’
WE HAD SO MUCH FUN
YES WE WERE YOUNG & WE WERE FOOLISH
BUT OUR DREAMS WERE SUNG
DANCING TO THE REBEL AND TO BOWIE TOO
THESE ARE THE MEMORIES I HAVE OF YOU
DON’T BE SO QUICK, LORD
TIME MOVES FAST
THERE AIN’T NO HARM A’COMIN FROM
WALKING IN THE PAST’

THERE’S A FULL MOON IN THE SKY
WE STILL GOT SOMETHING, YOU CAN’T DENY
TAKE A WALK OUTSIDE,
IF NOTHING ELSE, DARLIN’
WE’VE GOT TONIGHT…

COME ON TAKE A WALK WITH ME, DARLIN’

HEY! WE GOT A BOTTLE OF WINE
AND YOU KNOW
WE’VE GOT THE BENEFIT OF TIME
HEY! DARLIN’ WE GOT ABSOLUTION, BABY!!!
BROTHERS AND SISTERS
GET ON YOUR KNEES AND PRAY…

HERE WE GO…

WE’RE GONNA MOVE SOME MEMORIES AROUND

WE’RE GONNA
TAKE IT ON DOWN
WE’RE GONNA
TAKE IT ON BACK
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG
WE WERE FOOLISH, HONEY
THAT’S A FACT
BUT TONIGHT WE’RE GONNA DANCE
TONIGHT WE’RE GONNA SING
COME ON PRETTY DARLING
GONNA SHAKE THAT THING…
