Track Name: Madeline (Album Version)
He believed she was a gift sent from above
She was the kind of girl that he'd been dreaming of
He knew that he was bound to fall in love
with Madeline

They lived together so in love for several years
Until the day she wrote a note and disappeared
He read the words she wrote and shed a tear
for Madeline

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

He never understood just why she had to go
What did he do to make her want to hurt him so
He could fill an ocean with the things he didn't know
about Madeline

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

The love that you give away
Comes back to you someday
So have the faith to say what's on your mind

Take care in the things you do
It’ll all come back to you
If you see it through it'll be all right

Fall on your knees and pray
That she'll come back some day
And you might hear her say she'll stay this time

She's the one for you
You tell yourself it's true
And try to hold on to that lonely lie

It always ends the same
There's no-one left to blame
So you call her name
O, Madeline

He left his home in search of another way
To find the girl who long ago had gone astray
Then one day to his house a letter came
from Madeline

And it read-

"I'll be home soon on the number 9, love of mine. You have always been on my mind.
I hope we're fine. See you soon. I love you.
Signed,
Madeline."

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

My Madeline
Track Name: Something About You (Music Box Mix)
There's a distance between you and me
Always been there and always will be
Until we learn to act naturally
And let all our fears of each other go free

You know something about me
And I know something about you
I see through all the love
That you try to hide

We both dance around things we should say
Always let the words get in our way
Never asking each other to stay
When we feel like turning and running away

You know something about me
And I know something about you
I see through all the love
That you try to hide

All the times when you felt all alone
Like there's no-one else you could run to
All you had to do was open your eyes
And you'd see I was always there looking for you

We're both frightened by what we might find
If we open our hearts and our minds
So we left all our feelings behind us
And now we're here feeling deaf, dumb and blind

I know something about you
And you know something about me
You see through all the love
That I try to hide

And you know something about me
And I know something about you
I see through all the love
That you try to hide inside
Track Name: My Love (Mardis Gras Mix)
Where is the love that I want
Where is the life that was promised me
Where is the home that I've seen
There on the shores of my lonely dreams
And when you see me carrying
The weight of the world
Shoulder the burden a while with me
Lay down and curl up beside me

Where is the fortune I lost
When will it come around again
Why do I still pay the cost
Why do I take it on the chin
And when you hear me call your name
All over the world
Turn around and come on home

My love is more than you bargained for
My love is yours to have or to ignore
When you walk through the door
I'll be waiting for you with a promise of
A day when you can have my love

Where is the sound of your heart
When will I hear it beat again
Why did you run so far
Just to escape a little sin
And when you hear me spreading the word
All over the world
I'm calling you to come back home

When you went so far away, so long ago
you left me holding on to a life I could not let go

Where is the end of the road
When is it time to go to sleep
When will the ocean flow
Pull me out of the lonely deep
And when you see me sailing towards
The end of the world
Then you'll know I'm going home

My love is more than you bargained for
My love is yours to have or to ignore
When you walk through the door
I'll be waiting for you with a promise of
A day when you can have my love
A chance for us to finally live
with all the love I had to give before
Before you walked out the door
(My love is more)
You're the one I'm waiting for
(My love is yours)
You're mine forever more
(My love is more)
(My love is yours)
Track Name: Fear (Acoustic)
I always want what I haven't got
and now that's quite a lot of noise and silly toys
and things that keep me far away

And I never gave much thought
but now I see it's not a thing that I can sing about
without it coming out, so...

You're all that I ever wanted
I come to you undaunted by the fear of you
I still hold right here in my heart
You're all that I ever needed
I finally conceded to let you in to me again
like I did at the start

We've been here for so long it started to feel wrong
and so I let you know that I was going to run away

But you, you wouldn't let me go
and so I want to show you how I'm staying now
and trying to love you more today, because...

You're all that I ever wanted
I come to you undaunted by the fear of you
I still hold right here in my heart
You're all that I ever needed
I finally conceded to let you in to me again
like I did at the start

And all the things I thought were right
about the things that we would fight about
were not alright when I was walking out the door

You hold my heart in your hands
and so of course it stands to reason
you would please and understand me
when I needed you most

You're all that I ever wanted
I come to you undaunted by the fear of you
I still hold right here in my heart
You're all that I ever needed
I finally conceded to let you in to me again
like I did at the start
Track Name: The Ocean Song (Karaoke Version)
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooh
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooh

Hear the ocean wind
Here it comes again
You know it feels right
So let the sunlight in

Your arms are open wide
Embrace the rising tide
It washes over all you hold inside

Feel the motion
Of the ocean waves
They call for you
Let them take you
Far away where
You can start anew
Don't let them break you down
Like you always do

Oo-oo-ooh
Oo-ooh oo-oo-oo-ooh
Oo-oo-oo-ooh
Oo-oo-oo-ooh

Won't you come with me
We'll sail across the sea
Set adrift on a ship of harmony

Feel the motion
Of the ocean waves
They take us home
Stars above us
Guide us to a place
We can call our own
A place where we won't ever
Have to be alone

A place where we won't ever
Have to feel alone

Ooh oo-ooh oo-oo-ooh ooh
