Track Name: The sum of your parts
© Chris Barrett (pookah) - All rights reserved

Look what you've done, to yourself
what you've become, you're somebody, somebody else
look at the mess you've made, you threw it all away
I know what should be said, I just don't know if I can say

If only you could go back and do things differently
put everyting on track the way it used to be
and if you feel lonely, only yourself to blame
you made your bed so go lie in it, it matter none to me

Life it lets us all mingle, life it pulls apart those seems
just as it can make you tingle, it can pull at your heart strings
it can pull at your heart strings, it can pull at your heart strings,
oooh oooh oooh ay ay

And i'll keep the traces of you in a magazine
you're the sum of those around you, or so it seems to me
but if you're still lonely, only yourself to blame
you made your bed so go lie in it, it matters none to me

Life it lets us all mingle, life it pulls apart those seams
just as it can make you tingle, it can pull at your heart strings
it can pull at your heart strings, it can pull at your heart strings,
oooh oooh oooh ay ay

Life
there's always life
Life
there's always life
Track Name: All your bridges
For too long now, you been
hiding up on the higher ground
you won’t bow down, no no
you won’t bow out with what you’ve found

you‘ve sewn all your stitches
But you never dropped one
Just like you burn all your bridges
Before you ever cross one

And I see all the colour it’s draining from you
I see all the light it’s fading from your view

You‘ve sewn all your stitches
And you never dropped one
Just like you burn all your bridges
Before you ever cross one

You go through your life chasing riches
You take from some, you take from anyone

And I stand here as your witness
To all that you have done
And all that you’ve undone

For too long now, you been
hiding up on the higher ground
you won’t bow down, no no
you won’t bow out without making a sound

you sewn all your stitches
and you never dropped one
just like you burn all your bridges
One by one
Will you ever burn this one
Track Name: Fireflies
Even when I tell you
it comes as no surprise
Whenever she's around
there's a sparkle in her eye

my heart skips a beat
i wanna move these dancing feet
and we go dancing over the flame

Ooooh makes me crazy
she says she don't want this night to end
ooooh she makes me crazy
But I don't want this moment to slip away

Like two fireflies at night
we light up the endless sky
you follow me, I follow you

we go flying into the flame
we take our chance come what may
you hold me and I hold you

Ooooh makes me crazy
she says she don't want this night to end
ooooh she makes me crazy

But I don't want this moment to slip away
Even though we want it to
time just wont stand still
but every passing moment
brings another thrill

Ooooh makes me crazy
I don't want this night to ever end
ooooh she makes me crazy
But I don't want this moment to slip away

oooh we're just like fireflies
we go dancing naked over the flame
oooh we're just like fireflies
we go dancing naked through the flame
Track Name: Old Melodies
Up through the mountains, over the trees
asleep at the wheel, m deep in a dream
and I don't know why, each time I try
just to reach you

I find myself floating over old melodies
trying to bring back old faded memories
I still don't know why
still don't know why
each time I try

Im still floating, im still dosing
trying to claw back the time
but it just keeps on moving
it's making me feel, nothing is real
but I don't have to fear

No fear by my side
no holes where it can hide
I just won't allow it

And it's down from the mountains
over the trees
asleep at the wheel
I'm deep in a dream
Track Name: Realign
Well I may not always do the right thing
By you
And I may not always say the brightest thing
To you
I’ve been chasing all my dreams
Changing all my ways
And I’m bursting at the seams
Just to see you

Days go by, like old lullabies
So forgetful, I’m so forgetful
Nights cut deep, into my sleep
I still don’t get it though
I just don’t get it though

It would be good to see your face
Spend a little time
It would be good to share some space

Track Name: Melody I remember
Well I wonder if my time will come
May sit around but I wait for no one
Wishing all my tides away
Watch the shadows grow then fade

You, you wonder if you're time will come
Wasting around waiting for someone
Wishing all your time away
Still the shadows grow then fade

Melody I remember dancing
To the waves down by the sea
Melody I remember dancing
but do they still remember me

If you feel your time has been and gone
Stop sitting around waiting for someone
Dreaming of another day
When all your shadows swept away


Melody I remember dancing
To the waves down by the sea
Melody I remember dancing
but do you still remember me
Do you still remember
Do you hell
Do you still remember me

Melody I remember dancing
To the waves down by the sea
Melody I remember dancing
but do you still remember me
Do you still remember,
Would you tell
Do you still remember me

Do you still remember
Do you still remember
