Track Name: When We Get To Where We're Going
when we get to where we’re going

when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there
when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there
no more doubt, no more worry
we’ll take our time, no more hurry
when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there

when we get a little further, we’ll be nearer, we’ll be nearer
down the road, a little further, we’ll see clearer, we’ll see clearer
with our conscience as out guide
on and on, side by side
when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there

with you Lord, to protect me, I will prevail, I will prevail
if I stumble you pick me up without fail, without fail
with your love in our hearts
we’ve already made a start
when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there

there’s a welcome, where we’re going, for everyone, for everyone
friend and foe, all together, we’re going home, we’re going home
peace and love, joy and laughter
in that sweet hereafter
when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there


when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there
when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there
no more pain, no more sorrow
our time done, no more tomorrow
when we get to where we’re going, we’ll be there, we’ll be there

Track Name: A Boat Will Carry Us
a boat will carry us across the river
a stone finds it's way to shore
wind takes us where it wants to
and my love will always be yours

the sun comes up and wakes the horizon
flowers shine with morning dew
bird song stirs sleeping branches
and my arms reach out for you

there are times I forget about you
when the world wont let me be
still my heart remains true
you are always with me
you are always with me
you never leave me or forsake me
you are always with me

the moon can move the deepest ocean
water calms a roaring flame
trains rush by, cut through the landscape
and my heart sings out your name

Track Name: Foolish Pride
foolish pride

I hope it gets better, it usually does
I can’t understand making such a fuss
my feelings are hurt, but I’m trying to forget it
my heart wont break ‘cos my heart wont let it
I reach for my glass, swallow my foolish pride

you can’t understand the feeling you get
your mind’s made up though you don’t know it yet
it’s been so long you forgot what to do
you know what you should do but what you should do won’t do
you reach for your glass, swallow your foolish pride

foolish pride… take another sip of that
foolish pride… nowhere to run and
you can’t hide… whatever it is driving you
deep inside…. there’s nothing left to do but
open wide…. and swallow that foolish pride

and girls when you see him, the one for you
the man of your dreams just looking at you
you know he feels the same way too
he don’t mind what you do
put down your glass, swallow your foolish pride

Track Name: No One
no one

in a bar filled to the brim
with congenial fellow men
you may feel as lonesome as the wind
and as you talk and nod and smile
and carry it all off with style
no one ever knows the state you’re in

no one, no one
no one, no one

no one knows how you feel
they don’t care they never will
they don’t plan to see you again
and if they do they’ll fill you in
with details of their regimen
as if you love no one but them

no one…….

as I sit in this lonely place
all I see is your sweet face
but there’s nobody here but me
and without you part of me
is elsewhere as well you see
there’ll always be no one but you for me

no one……

Track Name: Puff and Nonsense
puff & nonsense

I’m getting to know you a little too well
every thing you do rings a thousand bells
I start to worry, I start to fret
you think I’d have learned by now but I haven’t yet

that all count for nothing
when I hold you
all that puff and nonsense
disappear
I want it to last
a little bit longer
when I hold you
no I wont get weary
when I’m in your arms

I open my eyes, its you that I see
when you speak, you speak to me
and yours is the sweetest voice I’ve ever heard
I tell you I love you and I mean every word

that all count for nothing…..

despite all the pain its
what I need the most
I’ve tried to explain it
I never come close

that all count for nothing…..

Track Name: Walking Beer
walking beer

I don’t like to drink alone
but with no companion of my own
there’s no bar comforts me
so I take to the streets

and get myself a walking beer, walk myself on out of here
move along be of good cheer, get myself a walking beer

in the city the delis had
ice cold beer in little brown bags
night and day they were open too
whats a poor wandering fool to do

but get himself a walking beer, walk himself on out of there
move along be of good cheer, get himself a walking beer

nice folks don’t drink in the street
heavens no, they’re more discreet
observant of decorum laws
they carry on behind closed doors

while I get myself a walking beer, walk myself on out of here
move along be of good cheer, get myself a walking beer
