Track Name: I Wish I Believed
Gonna walk like an astronaut to give you some space,
Gonna find myself in a familiar place,
So I'll know,
Oh I'll know,

Gonna walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
Gonna draw my name before my final breath,
So I'll know,
Oh I'll know that,

All I want is freedom,
And Lord, give me a reason,
Cause all I want is your hand, your hand, your hand.
All I want is everything I've ever had and more,
Oh Lord, Oh Lord,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed.

I'll pretend I'm a wise man to find my fool,
Impart all I know before I lose it all,
And I'll sing to the sky,
When I'm left by the roadside all alone,
When the pavement edge is my only home,
I'll still sing to the sky, singing,

All I want is freedom,
and Lord, give me a reason,
Cause all I want is your hand, your hand, your hand.
All I want is everything I've ever had and more,
Oh Lord, Oh Lord,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed.

In the room women come and go talking of Michelangelo,
And indeed there will be time to wonder,
Do I dare,
Do I dare.

Singing,
All I want is freedom,
and Lord, give me a reason,
Cause all I want is your hand, your hand, your hand.
All I want is everything I've ever had and more,
Oh Lord, Oh Lord,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed.

I wish I believed,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed,
I wish I believed.
Track Name: Start a War
Oh, Come away,
Oh, Come away,
And in sad Cyprus,
Let me be laid.

Oh, Fly away,
Oh, Fly away,
I have been slain by a fair cruel maid.

I'll only break your heart,
I'll only let you down.

'Cause we don't know what we're fighting for,
No we don't know what we're crying for.
My love will only start a war,
Our love will only start a war.

Oh, Lay me down,
Oh, Lay me down,
Let me sing,
But hear no sound.

You cannot see,
No you cannot see,
It soothes my ears,
But it's not music to me.

I'll only break your heart,
I'll only let you down.

'Cause we don't know what we're fighting for,
No we don't know what we're crying for.
My love will only start a war,
Our love will only start a war.
Track Name: This Old Town
This old town,
Wraps me up,
Pulls me down.

On bended knee,
This old city,
Is all of me.

There's nothing quite like coming home.

On the Cam,
Sheep and lambs,
River man.

Bridge of Sighs,
Shirts and ties,
Beer and wine.

There's nothing quite like this old town.

One day this place will learn,
That one day I may return.

This place feels,
Like barley fields,
Will help me heal.

Nothing will change,
Except gravestone names,
And children's games.

There's nothing quite like coming home.
There's nothing quite like this old town.

One day this place will learn,
That one day I may return.

Hey.
Track Name: I Thought I Was
Where do we go?
What do we do?
I left in my lifetime.

Who will we be?
Will we be free?
I've been passing through in light.

I thought I was a hero,
But there were thorns left in my crown,
I thought I was in heaven,
But I was buried in the ground.

Where do we fly?
Where do we die?
Born alone and live in rhyme.

What is the sky?
What is life?
Trying to get a fuck and trying not to die.

I thought I was a hero,
But there were thorns left in my crown,
I thought I was in heaven,
But I was buried in the ground.
Track Name: You've Been On My Mind
When I get home from war,
When I get back from this fight.
I’ll make sure I'll knock on your door,
I’ll make sure I’ll stay the night.

You have been on my mind,
After all of this time,
You’re still on my mind.

Now, the past is but a memory,
The future’s just pretend.
Life was made for living,
Not a means to an end.

You have been on my mind,
After all of this time,
You’re still on my mind.

No, don’t wait too long,
I might not return,
No, don’t wait too long,
I might not come home.

I have seen bombs go off,
Seen the planes rushing by.
I have chased the dancing wind along,
Seen friends fall from the sky.

You were still on my mind,
After all of this time,
You were still on my mind.

No, don’t wait too long,
I might not return,
No, don’t wait too long,
I might not come home.

I might not come home.
