Track Name: Ocean of Blue
Ocean of Blue
A paradise with all the world to see
Just as it was
Let mankind never lay a heavy hand on you
Ocean of Blue
Your islands bathe in showers kiss by sun
Just as it was just as it was
Ocean of Blue
Track Name: She's My Lover
She's my lover she's a fine friend to hold
Warm and tender in love and life
When she loves me all the world seems right
When she loves me all the world seems bright

Walkin' out in the morning sun
She knows that her work is done
Walkin' out in the morning sun
She is music to my eyes
She's my lover
She's my lover

She looks good when she puts on my dressing gown
When she moves all her hair flows 'round
We sip coffee on the terrace in the sun
All the good things in life have come

Walkin' out in the morning sun
She knows that her work is done
Walkin' out in the morning sun
She is music to my eyes
She's my lover
She's my lover
Track Name: Coal Town Boys
Lay my bones in coal rich soil
Cos I'll be happy there
Just to hear the rattling cups
On miners bikes as they ride by
Their ghosts still ride on to the morning train
That early morning steamer
On the Pukemiro line

I was one of five who got up before the sun could shine
Before the mist of grey had lifted over Hakanoa Lake
We've get the skiff out on the river take it down a mile
Then we'd see how fast we could row it home again

We were
Coal Town Boys
Coal Town Boys
Nothing left but memories of coal town joys
It all seems so different now
From the way it was back them
But deep inside I know we'll always be
Coal Town Boys
Track Name: Eating with the Dog
I was sleeping late with sun in my face
Aching head careless days
Eating with the dog
Eating with the dog

I've been here I've been there
I've been up I've been down
But now I'm here living close to the ground
Eating with the dog
Eating with the dog

Yeah there's nothing quite like getting rid of your needs
Forgetting all about those people to please
Eating with the dog
Eating with the dog
Track Name: Chamber of Space
Some say the world is a strange to be
But we have no choice
Spinning around in a chamber of space
We have no choice
Just when you look the sun is there
Just when you look the sun is there
In the right place
In the right place

Millions of millions between the extreme
There beats a heart
Pulsing it's time envoking it's mind
There beats a heart
Spinning around in a chamber of light
Searching for warmth in a sea of life
We are living
We are living

(Bridge)

Some say the world is a strange to be
But we have no choice
Spinning around in a chamber of space
We have no choice
Just when you look the sun is there
Just when you look the sun is there
In the right place
In the right place
Track Name: Modern Times
Modern life was meant to be easy
You turn the tap and water comes running out
Comes running out comes running out
You flick the switch you press the button
Too much too much will take your willpower away
You give it away you're lost without say

These are the Modern Times
With superstars and rising crime
We'd like to know how to turn things 'round
To turn things up and turn things down

The telephone is a wonderful thing
You pay the bill and it rings
All over the world all over the world
The roads we travel are danger filled
Common sense might see us through
Might see us through
Might see us through

These are the Modern Times
With superstars and rising crime
We'd like to know how to turn things 'round
To turn things up and turn things down

We know it's been said and done before
And no one wants to spoil the fun
In groovy times

But when you see someone you love
Become remote and begin to slip away
You've just got to say
You've just got to say
Track Name: You Make Me Feel Loved
You
You are the one
You radiate your charm
As if from above
You make me smile
With things that you've done
You make me feel
Make me feel loved

Bright
Bright is the sky
All of the stars
Are shining tonight
Here with me now
I feel wonder and awe
Cos you make me feel
I'm part of it all

Once in a while
Things come together in our lives
You are the special one
You make me feel loved
You make me feel loved

You make me smile
With things that you've done
You make me feel
Make me feel loved
