Track Name: I Can't Swim!
Drop the beat, tap your feet and smoke some weed,
Don't let your heart stings strum their own melody,
Let the rivers of your mind flow sweet like clementine,
Babe I'm fine.

I'll stay strong, life goes on.

Eh-i-oh give me some hope yes,
I can't swim but i'll dive in so that you're not alone,
I tap when I play because I know,
If you give rhythm to the music then the rhythm helps you to cope.

I sit on the back of this boat and feel the warmth of your presence,
Wash over this battered and stone cold sea,
I feel so safe as he clings on to to my essence,
the moon sparkles of the sea,
What a beautiful scene.

Drop the beat, tap your feet, you planted my seeds,
On a path that was touched by decete,
The fear is near, close enough to see,
This misty stream clouds everything I seek.

I'll stay strong, life goes on.

Eh-i-oh give me some hope yes,
I can't swim but i'll dive in so that you're not alone,
I tap when I play because I know,
If you give rhythm to the music then the rhythm helps you to cope.
Track Name: Take It Away
Just another high street brawl because the day that my changed pace,
I was taken away from my home.
As I moved from home to home, i built up rage, i couldn't cope,
Take it away.

Let the water seep beneath your feet and soul, let me be whole again,
Turn the page.

From the shores to the moors I feel the sweet summer wind,
call me home, i don't know where to go.

How can I stay strong? When they do what they do is wrong,
i'm at a cost, I loose my way.
Talk to her all night long, picked up my pen and wrote this song,
It'll take it away.

Just another high street brawl because the day that my changed pace,
I was taken away from my home.
As I moved from home to home, i built up rage, i couldn't cope,
Take it away.

Eh,eh,eh,eh,eh,eh,eh, in your love I bathe,
Eh,eh,eh,eh,eh,eh,eh, I mean no harm, from your heart I farm.

I bend to depend in the end the real rocks of this earth are your friends
and the ones that you love.
I bend to depend in the end the real rocks of this earth are my friends
and the one that I love.

How can I stay strong? When they do what they do is wrong,
i'm at a cost, I loose my way.
Talk to her all night long, picked up my pen and wrote this song,
It'll take it away.

Just another high street brawl because the day that my changed pace,
I was taken away from my home.
As I moved from home to home, i built up rage, i couldn't cope,
Take it away.

Eh,eh,eh,eh,eh,eh,eh, in your love I bathe,
Eh,eh,eh,eh,eh,eh,eh, I mean no harm, from your heart I farm.

We've got to be brave babe, approach me with haste,
You take away the things I don't need babe,
With your grace babe, approach me with pace,
I'll fill you with warmth because I know.
If you invest in me I'll invest in you whole,
If you invest in me I'll invest in your soul.
Track Name: That's Why I'm With You
Starting out, I had my doubts,
All I wanted to do was have some fun,
I knew it could go wrong, but we kept it strong,
Till we knew each other inside and out.

She like a glass bridge because,
she supports me when she's not there,
I let go, when I couldn't see her anywhere,

This was not what I'd planned,
When I made a stand, I hold up both hands,
that i'd hope you understand.
And then It came through, given space to renew, I believe in it too,
That's why i'm with you.

On a Turkish road, I met this bloke,
He showed me how to love my own,
I hit a thousand notes and nearly lost my life on a boat.

She like a glass bridge because,
she supports me when she's not there,
I let go, when I couldn't see her anywhere,

This was not what I'd planned,
When I made a stand, I hold up both hands,
that i'd hope you understand.
And then It came through, given space to renew, I believe in it too,
That's why i'm with you.

I say i eh, I'm living in a heartless sway,
I'm skipping and I'm kipping and i'm living in a heartless sway,
It never ends,
Let's drink, let's drink till we can't stand.
