Track Name: Pockets
Could it be? Could it be? Could it be?

You walk with your hands in your pockets with me
Could it be, could it be?

That you're conscious all the time
That your hand wasn't reaching mine
So you walk with your hands in your pockets with me?

You walk with your hands in your pockets with me
Could it be, could it be?

That you're relaxed and free
And easy in my company
So you walk with your hands in your pockets with me?

You walk with your hands in your pockets with me
Could it be, could it be?

That you can't stand to even touch my hand
So you walk with your hands in your pockets with me?

Or that between your knuckles you've stashed a key
and pretty soon you're gonna lash out at me
so you walk with your hands in your pockets with me?


You walk with your hands in your pockets with me
Could it be?

You walk with your hands in your pockets with me
What happened … to you with me?
Track Name: Wrong!
See you swanning down the street
You just attention-seek
Looking like the real deal
Looking ready to seal the deal
To all intents and purposes
You seem for what it's worth
Ready to give what we deserve
But it's a dangerous dish you serve

Chorus:
And this is just wrong on so many levels
You're looking like an angel, behaving like a devil
And this is just wrong on so many levels, yeah

And now 20 years have gone
And everybody else has moved on
You're trapped in the mind of a teen
You still think you're the dancing queen
And at the school reunion
Put on the old school uniform
DIrty dancing, feeling naughty
Dressed like a school-girl when you're nearly 40

Chorus
Track Name: Step by Step
Step by step we piece ourselves back together again
We can retrace to where we were before it all began
Like the pawn moves across the board one square at a time
We can take it day by day 'til we reach the other side

Chorus:
Step by step and side by side
Hand in hand across the divide
Step by step and stone by stone
We don’t have to be alone

Step by step we keep ourselves from falling apart
We can rebuild piece by piece to make a brand new start
Like the sea erodes the stone one grain at a time
We keep putting our next foot forward 'til the mountain is climbed

Chorus
Track Name: Crossed Lines
This morning everything was fine
You took your normal path and I took mine
We could wish for nothing more, we had nothing else to need
A perfect picture of a perfect dream

Chorus:
Then in the blink of an eye everything's changed
The fabric has crumbled, the pieces rearranged
How can so much change in such a short passage of time?
Is it really that easy to cross that line?

'Til this morning everything was going great
I never said goodbye 'cos I was running late
But I thought of all the good times we could have later on
But when I got home you were gone

Chorus
Track Name: Indebted
Is it selfish to stop giving?
Is it better to have never given at all?
Is it wrong to want to start living
When you hear your future call?

Chorus:
'Cos when push came to shove
Well I'm sorry, I just had to go
So how can I repay the debt?
And how much do I owe?

Was it naive to think that
These life choices are easy to decide
With logic and with reason,
Emotions put aside?

Chorus

Is it prudent to keep talking
Or does it just rub salt into the cut?
Do I ask too many questions?
Will you say when you've had enough?

Chorus
Track Name: My Name Is Mary
I was young, it was my very first time
Held down as he whispered “Now you're blessed”
The shame the blame, the hushed up crime
A baby in me, a cuckoo in our nest

Chorus:
She wears her tears all day
She wears her tears like make up
And she's stopped feeling their rain
Splashing circles in her tea cup.
She says “My name is Mary, let me explain.”


He was always such a strange child
Restless spirit, restless mind
Always searching for his father
Afraid of what he might find

Chorus


I always tried to be a good mother
Tried to teach him wrong from right
But he turned his back upon me
When he stood by his father's side.

Chorus
Track Name: Another Door Opens
Well soon it will be time to say goodbye
It's been such a good time
We've seen lots of good times together
But soon no longer

But as one door closes, another door opens
Yes as one door closes, another door opens
The end of an era is the start of another
The end of an era is the start of another

Goodbye, goodbye, You've been good to me
Goodbye, my friend, goodbye, You've been good

But as one door closes, another door opens
One door closes, another door opens
And the end of an era is the start of another
The end of an era is the start of another
