Beyond a. Sent Through The Morning (M. Hunt) Outward to the sight Sent through the morning Here and yet again Now I can see Onward to the light Step now to the warning Dance in refrain So now decree Striding effervescence Lead to the surface Asking for another Way to the sight Catching the glitter Glancing with purpose Dancing to the summer Can we take flight Sink to the future Stable in falling Archival insight an Impending thought Onward to the light Step now to the warning Dance in refrain So now decree Striding effervescence Lead to the surface Asking for another Way to the sight Catching the glitter Glancing with purpose Dancing to the summer Can we take flight Beyond b. Sharkflight (J.C. Hamill) Deep in the pool watch out for sharks They will attack you just for a lark It maybe best if you play dead That way they can’t get inside your head They may not like a jellyfish I don’t think jelly is their favourite dish So be observant look for clues Or all that’s left of you will be your shoes! We must have water to swim away We swim with the sharks at our side With a deep understanding that every day We might have to swim for our lives! Everyone knows that sharks don’t ever sleep They swim so deep, they never sleep And where the treasure is they lie in wait Just hoping we will take the bait So be observant look for clues And watch out as it starts to make its move Cos when it has you in its sights It may just take you with a single bite We must be ready to be hurt But if we are hurt we’ll heal Our quickening senses keep us alert To the glint in their teeth of steel Strive, fight we must When we're alive, before we are dust We can defeat them snatching the victory Look to the trees that's what we'll become Each day we try to reach for the sun Flight of the seagull Flight of the eagle Flight of the raven Flight of the albatross Fight of the people Fighting for freedom All gods are craven Until the line is crossed Rewrite the story Give them the glory They all deserve to Have all their names in lights We are the ones who Give up the power to Ones who observe who’re Willing to stand and fight Our to effervescent tides Out to welcome all with arms open wide Come home To fight no more It’s peaceful here Search in the shadows (Leafy and golden) Down in the hollow (You‘ll find the meaningful) All that you borrowed (You were beholden) Now you must follow (Till it’s repaid in full) Look to the distance (Life is unfolding) Seasons are changing (Time will exert its pull) All that you borrowed must be repaid Or time will invoke its revenge The words that you said and the promises made Are the permanent message you send Beyond c. Dawn (J.C. Hamill) Green shoots are forming, new hope is here The earth is warming, the sky is clear New days are dawning, new hope is here The power of sunlight, movement and change Here, here, speak of the dreams that you want to see We must try to create them, bring them into being Bring them to life, bring them to life Light is returning we feel renewed All we've been learning, the demons we slew The battles we fought, just to get to the truth You stand with me, I'll stand with you Speak of the dreams that we want to see We must try to create them, bring them into being We can face what we have to, standing together Stronger together Beyond d. The Other Side (J.C. Hamill) He'll carry you across the great divide The ferry man will take you to the other side Those souls whose journey isn't yet completed He will make a bargain that can never be repeated Once you step inside the boat Once you're all safely afloat He will call you out on all your misdemeanours All your enemies your debtors and your desperate cheaters This is your reward if you can resist The siren calling you to crash into the cliffs Close your ears when the devil rings his bell His hollow laugh will call you on the road to hell It's then you'll realise that the race is lost You've indulged yourself now you must count the cost Ignoring the lessons in angelic books And all the advice that you never took Beyond e. Flight (J.C. Hamill) You will regret then things that you never did Times you missed the girls that you never kissed All of your memories turn into water Evaporating watching your world shaking Flight of the seagull Flight of the eagle Flight of the raven Flight of the albatross Roads that were long and roads that were wrong and Roads that led nowhere, roads that you never crossed Listening for shadows, writing on windows Saving the changes, seeing the tables turned Lighting the darkness, composed and conscious Building the bridges, to all the bridges burned Here is your victory, your valedictory Here is your trophy, here is the praise you've earned Peace, peace at last, no more need to impress, just a knowing you did your best You gave your all, all you had, time now to rest

Yours and Mine a. Like There's No Tomorrow (J.C. Hamill) I know what heartbreak is and so do you We've been around the block a time or two But if we keep looking back we'll waste our time Our future's out there, Yours and mine So when the sun comes up let's make a vow To live the days we have in the here and now If we keep looking back it's more time we'll waste Our future's out there, Let's have a taste Let's live like there's no tomorrow Let's dance 'til our clothes are torn Nobody out there's gonna judge us We'll soon feel reborn I followed all my dreams, I've no regrets I had some good times with the friends I met But if you asked me now what I love the most It'll be your smile, love, when you hold me close Let's live like there's no tomorrow Let's dance 'til our clothes are torn Nobody out there's gonna judge us We'll soon feel reborn Let's live like there's no tomorrow Then we'll get the best of every day Most people out there won't judge us They'll just want to come and play And if you meet some doom-mongers Some naysayers some cynical players Just kiss them on the cheek and say Come with me, come with me Let's live like there's no tomorrow Let's dance 'til our clothes are torn Nobody out there's gonna judge us We'll soon feel reborn Let's dance like there's no tomorrow Let's make the most of everyday Most people out there won't judge us They'll just want to come and play Come and play Yours and Mine b. Diorama (J.C. Hamill) He said he'd like to put her in his private diorama He promised her protection there so no-one would ever harm her And she fell under his spell because he knew just how to charm her But her father said “No way, will you take away my daughter We need her here to work the farm, the days are getting shorter We must make a profit out of all the things we taught her The only way she can go is if you pay gold and then you have bought her” So he took her down to Dorset and now she's in his diorama He feeds her tea and oranges and pieces of banana And she sits and stares out of glass all day And she dreams of being a farmer Then her mother said “I have a plan to make us both feel calmer I'll change places with her inside that diorama He'll think the air has aged her and he'll want set her free Free to come back home, free to be owned by you and me”

Beyond a. Sent Through The Morning (M. Hunt)

Outward to the sight
Sent through the morning
Here and yet again
Now I can see
Onward to the light
Step now to the warning
Dance in refrain
So now decree
Striding effervescence
Lead to the surface
Asking for another
Way to the sight
Catching the glitter
Glancing with purpose
Dancing to the summer
Can we take flight

Sink to the future
Stable in falling
Archival insight an
Impending thought
Onward to the light
Step now to the warning
Dance in refrain
So now decree

Striding effervescence
Lead to the surface
Asking for another
Way to the sight

Catching the glitter
Glancing with purpose
Dancing to the summer
Can we take flight

Beyond b. Sharkflight (J.C. Hamill)

Deep in the pool watch out for sharks
They will attack you just for a lark
It maybe best if you play dead
That way they can’t get inside your head
They may not like a jellyfish
I don’t think jelly is their favourite dish
So be observant look for clues
Or all that’s left of you will be your shoes!

We must have water to swim away
We swim with the sharks at our side
With a deep understanding that every day
We might have to swim for our lives!
Everyone knows that sharks don’t ever sleep
They swim so deep, they never sleep
And where the treasure is they lie in wait
Just hoping we will take the bait

So be observant look for clues
And watch out as it starts to make its move
Cos when it has you in its sights
It may just take you with a single bite

We must be ready to be hurt
But if we are hurt we’ll heal
Our quickening senses keep us alert
To the glint in their teeth of steel

Strive, fight we must
When we're alive, before we are dust
We can defeat them snatching the victory
Look to the trees that's what we'll become
Each day we try to reach for the sun

Flight of the seagull
Flight of the eagle
Flight of the raven
Flight of the albatross

Fight of the people
Fighting for freedom
All gods are craven
Until the line is crossed

Rewrite the story
Give them the glory
They all deserve to
Have all their names in lights

We are the ones who
Give up the power to
Ones who observe who’re
Willing to stand and fight

Our to effervescent tides
Out to welcome all with arms open wide
Come home
To fight no more
It’s peaceful here

Search in the shadows (Leafy and golden)
Down in the hollow (You‘ll find the meaningful)
All that you borrowed (You were beholden)
Now you must follow (Till it’s repaid in full)
Look to the distance (Life is unfolding)
Seasons are changing (Time will exert its pull)

All that you borrowed must be repaid
Or time will invoke its revenge
The words that you said and the promises made
Are the permanent message you send

Beyond c. Dawn (J.C. Hamill)

Green shoots are forming, new hope is here
The earth is warming, the sky is clear
New days are dawning, new hope is here
The power of sunlight, movement and change
Here, here speak of the dreams that you want to see

We must try to create them, bring them into being
Bring them to life, bring them to life

Light is returning we feel renewed
All we've been learning, the demons we slew
The battles we fought, just to get to the truth
You stand with me, I'll stand with you
Speak of the dreams that we want to see
We must try to create them, bring them into being
We can face what we have to, standing together
Stronger together

Beyond d. The Other Side (J.C. Hamill)

He'll carry you across the great divide
The ferry man will take you to the other side
Those souls whose journey isn't yet completed
He will make a bargain that can never be repeated

Once you step inside the boat
Once you're all safely afloat

He will call you out on all your misdemeanours
All your enemies your debtors and your desperate cheaters

This is your reward if you can resist
The siren calling you to crash into the cliffs

Close your ears when the devil rings his bell
His hollow laugh will call you on the road to hell

It's then you'll realise that the race is lost
You've indulged yourself now you must count the cost

Ignoring the lessons in angelic books
And all the advice that you never took

Beyond e. Flight (J.C. Hamill)

You will regret then things that you never did
Times you missed the girls that you never kissed
All of your memories turn into water
Evaporating watching your world shaking

Flight of the seagull
Flight of the eagle
Flight of the raven
Flight of the albatross

Roads that were long and roads that were wrong and
Roads that led nowhere, roads that you never crossed
Listening for shadows, writing on windows
Saving the changes, seeing the tables turned

Lighting the darkness, composed and conscious
Building the bridges, to all the bridges burned
Here is your victory, your valedictory
Here is your trophy, here is the praise you've earned

Peace, peace at last, no more need to impress, just a knowing you did your best
You gave your all, all you had, time now to rest

Yours and Mine a. Like There's No Tomorrow (J.C. Hamill)

I know what heartbreak is and so do you
We've been around the block a time or two
But if we keep looking back we'll waste our time
Our future's out there, Yours and mine

So when the sun comes up let's make a vow
To live the days we have in the here and now
If we keep looking back it's more time we'll waste
Our future's out there, Let's have a taste

Let's live like there's no tomorrow
Let's dance 'til our clothes are torn
Nobody out there's gonna judge us
We'll soon feel reborn

I followed all my dreams, I've no regrets
I had some good times with the friends I met
But if you asked me now what I love the most
It'll be your smile, love, when you hold me close

Let's live like there's no tomorrow
Let's dance 'til our clothes are torn
Nobody out there's gonna judge us
We'll soon feel reborn
Let's live like there's no tomorrow
Then we'll get the best of every day
Most people out there won't judge us
They'll just want to come and play

And if you meet some doom-mongers
Some nayseyers some cynical players
Just kiss them on the cheek and say
Come with me, come with me

Let's live like there's no tomorrow
Let's dance 'til our clothes are torn
Nobody out there's gonna judge us
We'll soon feel reborn
Let's dance like there's no tomorrow
Let's make the most of everyday
Most people out there won't judge us
They'll just want to come and play
Come and play

Yours and Mine b. Diorama (J.C. Hamill)

He said he'd like to put her in his private diorama
He promised her protection there so no-one would ever harm her
And she fell under his spell because he knew just how to charm her

But her father said “No way, will you take away my daughter
We need her here to work the farm, the days are getting shorter
We must make a profit out of all the things we taught her
The only way she can go is if you pay gold and then you have bought her”

So he took her down to Dorset and now she's in his diorama
He feeds her tea and oranges and pieces of banana
And she sits and stares out of glass all day
And she dreams of being a farmer

Then her mother said “I have a plan to make us both feel calmer
I'll change places with her inside that diorama
He'll think the air has aged her and he'll want set her free
Free to come back home, free to be owned by you and me”

The Golden Ring Of Time (J.C. Hamill)

Somewhere
On a sandbank
There’s a dark man
And he’s holding a bright golden ring
Then suddenly, without warning
He throws it out into the sea
I didn’t see it land but found it lying on the sand
The morning after

It was light but it was heavy
And it made a peculiar sound
Like angels singing together
It was square and yet perfectly round
I couldn’t understand what I was holding in my hand
But I was curious

And later in the depth of night
Someone turned out all the lights
I heard them creeping underneath
As I pressed into embroidered sheets
They came to take the ring but it was securely hidden
It was then I felt a deep sense of foreboding and forbidden
Foreboding and forbidden, Foreboding and forbidden

Then the dogs howled and the trees broke
And the wind was so loud in my ears
There was lightning something’s happening
A strange looking man has appeared
“I think you have something for me”, he said
“Just take it, leave me be” I said

So I ran back to the sandbank
Hoping there was someone I could tell
But the dark man with the strange eyes
Was shouting his fear in my ear
And suddenly from the East, in came the Orange Beast
Coming towards us

I fell under
While seeing my life flash through my head
On the re-run, how I wonder
Would I do what I did if I knew?
Too late to change my mind
Or turn back the hands of time …….
