Track Name: Freight Train
I don't care if they run me down
I'm gonna run this race of mine
I don't care if their sun don't shine on me
I've got my own right here

Sticks and stones they may break my bones
But maybe they won't
No maybe not
They may call at me - shout my name
Call me a fool
But just give it a shot

Keep these feet on this ground, no sir
I'm gonna fly
So take a picture of that
If you can't see it I'm still right here
Doing my thing
As a matter of fact

Rumble rumble
Just like a freight train that lights, ignites my soul
Rumble rumble
Just like a freight train that lights, ignites my soul
Rumble rumble
Just like a freight train that lights, ignites my soul
Rumble rumble
Just like a freight train that lights, ignites my soul
Rumble rumble
Just like a freight train that lights, ignites my soul
Rumble rumble
Just like a freight train that lights, ignites my soul

Now I can't tell where these feet may land
It's all the same
I'm open wide
I'll trip up but I'll laugh and say
It's alright
I got plenty of time
Track Name: All Yours
Pick up your things and walk with me a while
Don't know a titch about where this road leads but
If we can be together and
Shut out all the weather then
Maybe the road might open wide before us

Brush yourself off and leave the past behind
We're making a break for it
Keeping hoping high
If we can do it our way then
The stars will guide our pathways and
Maybe the road might open wide before us

And we'll take flight off the mountain
And in the deep we'll sail the storms
And if you need a crying shoulder
This soul's all yours

You better not tell me that we haven't thought this through
Cause looking up now you'll see
The sky's a different blue
And if we make it our thing then
We might as well keep singing and
Maybe the road might open wide before us

And we'll take flight off the mountain
And in the deep we'll sail the storms
And if you need a crying shoulder
This soul's all yours

Maybe we can fly across the ocean
Maybe we'll explore the deep blue sea
Always in my mind I'll hold a golden place for you
For you
For you

And we'll take flight off the mountain
And in the deep we'll sail the storms
And if you need a crying shoulder
This soul's all yours
This soul's all yours
Track Name: Days Gone By
There's an old abandoned ruin
Wild and weary and worn
Sitting on a hilltop in the sun oh
Moving shadows as the sun it rolls across the sky
If you had the chance you'd be hard pressed
To pass it by

The moon rises high
And in the dead of night
She sings
Ooo of days gone by
Ooo of days gone by

Creeping up the hill in darkness
Comes a ragged old man
Peeking through a window in the night oh
Empty hallways but he can see them
Gathered all around
Firelight dancing, memories laughing
All the wrongs made right

The moon rises high
And in the dead of night
He sings
Ooo of days gone by
Ooo of days gone by

There's an old majestic ruin
Wild and lovely and loved
Sitting on a hilltop in the sun oh
'Neath the Lindens that line the pathway
There lies a crooked old stone
It marks the place where that crooked old man was laid
Some years ago

The moon rises high
And in the dead of night
They sing
Ooo of days gone by
Ooo of days gone by
Track Name: They Said
I saw you in the moonlight
The firelight in your eyes
It didn't take me long
To see that you would stop this heart in time

Your smile it had me laughing
You lightened up the night
It didn't take me long to know that you
Could make these wrongs feel right

They said love was something hard to find
They said my heart would break a million times
They said I shouldn't lay it on the line
Oh but here you are

They said love was something hard to find
They said my heart would break a million times
They said I shouldn't lay it on the line
Oh but here you are
Track Name: Take to the Sky
If I could take to the sky today
And soar into the billowing clouds
Would you understand
Could you read my mind
Or would you watch and wonder why I fly

If I was laughing up in the sky today
If all I knew was floating on air
Would you see my point of view
Could you comprehend
Or would you watch and scratch your head again

Well I don't know why
Flying fool I am you pass my by
On these days when I feel so blue
Won't you please join me, do

If I could stay in the sky all day
If no one said I had to go home
Would you see why I would stay in my sanctuary here
Or would you turn and walk the other way
Would you turn and walk the other way
Would you turn and walk the other way
