Change Of Mind

My father died when I was 5 and I don’t know, but I think
He was trying to make me a man
He used to say, son I don’t know another way, son
But I’m gonna try the best I can
And I don’t know now if my father or his father
Or his father’s father knew how to do that
And now I’m stuck here, just a memory of those years
And I still don’t know who the hell I am

I’m needing change of mind
You know that you can turn back time
You know you’re needing living proof
Of a change of mind

Another girl, another world, another time
That I thought would bring me all that I need
And I gotta say that every day that felt that way
Felt like I’d found my place to be
But then something comes across, she’s not the girl I thought she was
How good will change so suddenly
Now I’m wishing I could see her, didn’t know how much I need her
And I’m still stuck with the same damn me

You know I need a change of mind
You know that you can turn back time
You know I’m needing living proof
Of a change of mind

And I’m still on nine today
And I’m still on nine today
And I’m still on nine today

My sons look out for one another
I know they do I raised them that way
Father to son, brother to brother
We learn how to love and we learn how to hate
But sometimes I think that time is running out
And there’s still so much I’ve got to say
Son, you be looking for the reason you believe what you believe in
I be telling you you’re on your way

You know you need a change of mind
You know that you can turn back time
You know you’re needing living proof
Of a change of mind

You know you need a change of mind
You know that you can turn back time
You know you need a change of mind
You know that you can turn back time
You know you need a change of mind
You know that you can turn back time
You know you need a change of mind
You know you need a change of mind

Great Wild Ocean

I sit here a while, I can’t eat
I’m forcing a smile, I can’t sleep
I could leave you behind, go sail in my mind
And another will dive

I sit on that edge, I’m toeing that line
And everything I’m feeling feels like a lie
And it’s something else to see lightning in the sky
I could leave you behind, go sail in my mind
And another would dive

Into the great wild ocean
Into the great wild ocean
Into the great wild ocean
Into the great wild ocean, the great wide open sea

And you swim in the deep and you swim in the air
And the moonlight whispers, telling you you’re not there
And time is like an angel but you’ll never know what she says
But you’ll spend no more time wishing you were dead

Here in the great wild ocean
Here in the great wild ocean
Here in the great wild ocean

You see no way around it, you don’t know what she said
You’d never know I’m out here, you’d think that I was dead

‘Cause I sit on that edge, I’m toeing that line
I could leave you behind, go sail in my mind
And another will dive

Into the great wild ocean
Into the great wild ocean
Into the great wild ocean
Here in the great wild ocean
Here in the great wild ocean
Into the great wild ocean, the great wide open sea

Won’t you come and stand by me
Won’t you come and stand by me

Earth Is A Place For Love

I’m waiting on Earth to find me
I’m waiting on stars behind me
I’m waiting on her to refine me
To combine me, to define me
I’m waiting on love till the end
I’m waiting on someone to give in
I’m hoping that something will begin
But I’ve sinned, let me in

Earth is a place for love
All the Earth is a place for us
All the Earth is a place for love
Never give up, never give up

I’m waiting on something, I’m waiting on luck
I’m waiting on everybody else to get up
I’m waiting for something in this world that ain’t stuck
I’m starting to let me go
And I’m waiting on my life to start again
But there’s just no way to know when it ends
If you’re waiting on your live to begin

Earth is a place for love
All the Earth is a place for us
All the Earth is a place for love
Never give up, never give up

And all the Earth is a place for love
All the Earth is a place for us
All the Earth is a place for love
Never give up, never give up

And all the Earth is a place for love
All the Earth is a place for us
All the Earth is a place for love
Never give up, never give up
Never give up, never give up
Never give up
Earth is a place for love

Angels

Always had each other in their way
Always knew that it would be okay
No-one knows exactly what they’d say
Only knew the joy they’d bring

A little table to eat breakfast on
Though no words are spoken, something’s wrong
The cupboard’s empty, and the drawers are gone
And all the angels sing

She’s with her people now
And I’m left without her, wish she’d come back down
Don’t think she would even if she knew how
And all the angels sing

Now I guess at what she’d do
Had a side no-one knew
Never said a word to me, and every one was true
And all the angels sing
