TIME TO BEGIN
K.Noonan/A. Klippel

I used to think I had thick skin, it took a while to peel it down and let you in
When I did I told you secrets, you held my fears – took the weight as I lay my head down

It’s time to begin, let the sunshine back in
It’s time to begin, claim the suns’s rays as yours
It’s time to begin

Surrendering was hard to start but then I felt a comfort
In my new skin now I need to sew the old and the new
Wound up like a living doll, you came and turned the volume down
Now I need to find the balance between loud and soft

It’s time to begin, let the sunshine back in
It’s time to begin, claim the suns’s rays as yours
It’s time to begin and shine again, breathe again
It’s time to begin

The journey has been long my friend
You held my hand, without a word I know you understand

It’s time to begin, let the sunshine back in
It’s time to begin, claim the suns’s rays as yours
It’s time to begin and shine again, breathe again
It’s time to begin, live everyday as your last
It’s time to begin

SUNSHINE
K.NOONAN/A.KLIPPEL

she sits there, the shower water washing away her fears
her fists clenched up in frustration at the voice that just doesn’t let up

I look up and i see that smile again
I look up and i see sunshine again
I look up and i see your face again
and I see your face again

she said the girl of  5 minutes ago, i don’t know who that was – I get lost and lose my way
she breathes in and out again slowly  and reality slowly creeps back in – it’s never like the movies

I look up and i see that smile again
I look up and i see sunshine again
I look up and i see your face again
and i see your face again

and you lift her hair again
and you kiss away her tears
and you lift her eyes again

I look up and i see that smile again
I look up and i see sunshine again
I look up and i see your face again
and i see your face again

HOME
K NOONAN/G CLARK/K SAVIGAR

come here and clean me out, i want to start again with you
as we hold eachothers hands, i feel complete faith in you
I’ll never let you down and i know your eyes speak true
I’m the luckiest girl in the world cause i found you

the day you walked into my life, i couldn’t help but stare
i thought  there’d be no chance – you the happy go lucky boy

do you ever feel that it won’t come back?
do you ever feel that it won’t get back to that?
do you ever fear that it won’t last?
I should get scared but i don’t even think about that

that night you waited in the backyard, as we walked the dawning sun blessed our day
I want to hear our baby’s laughter, i count my blessings and i feel almost guilty
I reclaim my joy each day, you are my one true love
I’m the luckiest girl in the world cause i found you

the day you walked into my life, i couldn’t help but stare
I thought  there’d be now chance – you the happy go lucky boy

do you ever feel that it won’t come back?
do you ever feel that it won’t get back to that?
do you ever fear that it won’t last?
I should get scared but i don’t even think about that

no matter where we are, in your arms i’m home
no matter where we are, in your arms i’m home

LOGIC
K NOONAN

your concept of time whittles away while i sit and fiddle worrying myself that i think too much, oh yes i think too much
I feel i leave and you run away, escape the confines for one day – do i box you in, do i believe in you?

and now i ask you to leave and you believe in me
not knowing all i want you to say is “ i’m not going to leave you”
and now i say wait a while and you believe in me
now knowing i was too proud to say i wanted you that minute that day

cause logic goes out the window when i look at you
reason has no reason to be there
cause logic goes out the window when i think of you
I just want to be with you, i just want to love you

I make myself laugh the games i play to gage how much you care for me
I’m testing myself but putting myself through too
you shrug and say “it’s okay” it annoyes me how calm you are, how logical
and now i push you away, i know i’m hurting you
irrationality over-rides my sensbilities
you see i’ve been hurt before by the ones i love
I need to remember that wasn’t love and you will not act that way

cause logic goes out the window when i look at you
reason has no reason to be there
cause logic goes out the window when i think of you
i just want to be with you, i just want to love you
i’ve loved before and been given away a prize to save for that rainy day

RETURN
K.NOONAN/A.KLIPPEL

my heart burst out with joy the other day
a thousand colours painted all away
you two by my side, the picture seems complete
when you smile beams, there is no greater thing

when i turn and see you two standing on the beach
with the setting such framing your face
as the coloured rays peak through the clouds again
i run to you and kiss your face

completion i feel today
i’m firing on all fours today
i feel like i have finally returned

i am so lucky to have someone to love
as you lay your head on my chest i smile
like a canvas painted by the hands of god
i am so grateful, grateful you are here

completion i feel today
i’m firing on all fours today
i feel like i have finally returned

the greatest achievement in my life
lies sleeping at my breast
how to be a girl, a mother and a woman
it’s a daily test but i will do my best

completion i feel today
i’m firing on all fours today
i feel like i have finally returned

WHO ARE YOU?
K NOONAN/ROLLO/MARKY

once the catch has been caught and the money been counted
once the shot had been fired and the killing been done
when the fields are empty and the birds have flown
when your man is asleep lying at your side

once the train’s pulled out and the curtain’s been closed
once the holiday’s over and the children have grown
once the bride’s been kissed and the decorations down
when your girl is asleep lying at your side

what do we have but ourselves?
who are you at the end of your day?
what do we need but ourselves?
who are we at the end of our days?

once the question’s been asked and the tears have dried away
once the doors have locked and the clouds have passed across
once the rain has cleared and the rubbish been taken out
when your child is asleep lying at your side

what do we have but ourselves?
who are you at the end of your day?
what do we need but ourselves?
who are we at the end of our days?

LOVE’S MY SONG FOR YOU
K NOONAN
as we lay in the darkness chatting away the hours i wonder if i could lie here forever
stumbling into my slumber the smile can’t leave my face i know you feel it too, your arms around me tell me

and so i give you my heart i know you can hold it, hold it strong and stand by my side
you see i love you more and more, each day my heart grows fonder oh my love

love’s my song for you, let me sing it every day
love’s my song to you, let me show you every way

let me into your world love, i want to know all there is to know about you
shed your skin in front of me
I want to share this journey, i want to see you become all you want to be, and i’ll be there beside you

and so i give you my heart i know you can hold it, hold it strong and stand by my side
you see i love you more and more, each day my heart grows fonder oh my love

love’s my song for you, let me sing it every day
love’s my song to you, let me show you every way

as you wake beside me, your eyelids rise and i see my world again
we try to hold the day away
your smile fills me to my edges, you look at me and tell me the sweetest thing…
we smile again…

ONE STEP
K.NOONAN/A.KLIPPEL

every person on this beautiful planet
struggles with themselves at many points
growing up and tryin to work out
our spot in this strange place

being honest and facing yourself
is harder than we all admit
it’s easy to hide behind masks we create
to hide ourselves from truth
to hide myself from you

dark thoughts hang heavy but you can erase
them away and live a happy day

and it’s one step in front of another
it’s two steps you’re on your way
three steps your joined by your brother
to lead you on your way

comfort in your skin takes awhile
fear is the only thing holding you back
sometimes it feels like you’re always alone
but you got your friend deep inside
stop feeling sorry now

let go and admit your right to be free
stand tall feel the sunshine beaming on me

and it’s one step in front of another
It’s two steps you’re on your way
three steps your joined by your brother
to lead you on your way

the greatest strength does lie within yourself
the gentleness of learning to love
and it’s one step in front of another
it’s two steps you’re on your way
three steps your joined by your brother
to lead you on your way

BLUEBIRD
K NOONAN

this rhapsody of tension has lifted from my chest
as my flying can not destroy the nest
it is merely a new chapter of this dream

shining brightly does not quell the flame
it merely adds to the symphony of colour
that is this tapestry we weave

and i don’t believe it sings any louder or soars any higher
but it will not fly at all if not given freedom to be

at each turn there’s more to ignore, more to pretend isn’t there
more of the cons on the lists i fear they make
my wings slowly curl out of this cracked shell cause i need to be taught
I need you to hold my hand, baby steps on this new flight

and i don’t believe it sings any louder or soars any higher
but it will not fly at all if not given freedom to be

bluebird fly, bluebird fly

I hope you don’t want to pretend it’s all the way it was
cause i cried more than i think of
but now i’m trying to let go of our past

the nest we’ve made is stronger than we think
and thou we all fly we still come home
guilt is a dark room we can not live there

and i don’t believe it sings any louder or soars any higher
but it will not fly at all if not given freedom to be

bluebird fly, bluebird fly

SEND OUT A LITTLE LOVE
K NOONAN/G.CLARK/P.GORDENO

I wonder how many times we’ve all thought is this world all mad?
and i wonder how many times i’ve thought – here i go, i’m mad with it
is it the journey, or the landing space, or is it both and we’re already there?

tomorrow’s a new day – we’re not alone, tomorrrow’s a new day

send out a little love to strangers around you
send out a little love to yourself too
send out a little love
it’s okay to just be now

we all just don’t talk to eachother anymore
straight through the front door – don’t catch anybody’s eyes

tomorrow’s a new day – we’re not alone, tomorrrow’s a new day

send out a little love to strangers around you
send out a little love to yourself too
send out a little love
it’s okay to just be now

A LITTLE SMILE
K.NOONAN

I miss waking up to you in the morning
I miss cuddling you late at night
I’ve been around so long i don’t quite know myself

I’ve been around and i keep returing
althought desire she makes me want more
what i need to have and learn is here with me

why do we need to lose something to realise that it’s right there?
why do we i need to leave you to realise that i miss you?

each town the sun rises and the moon she falls
we work and rest and we do our daily best
beauty is and can be wherever you are

no matter where i go i try to make my home
and listen and believe what I hear
letting go embracing that friend that is me

why do we need to lose something  to realise that it’s right there?
why do we i need to leave you to realise that i miss you?

I want to stop and disembark for a little while
I want to feel at home with a little smile, a little grace, a little calm, a little time, a little time

why do we need to lose something  to realise that it’s right there?
why do we i need to leave you to realise that i miss you, i miss you love?

LITTLE BOY MAN
K.Noonan/A.Klippel

little boy man, you take my breath away
hold your head high, don’t let life pass you by

and I wish I could hold all the fears away
sing me your dreams and you’ll face them everyday

little boy man, I’ll wipe away your tears
I wonder what life was without you

and I wish I could hold all the tears at bay
sing me your dreams and I know you’ll find your way

you’re the greatest gift
you’re the sweetest kiss
you’re the sunshine
you’re the finest joy we’ll ever know

with you near me, my smile will never leave
my heart can’t be anymore in love with you

and I wish I could never let you down
sing me your dreams and we’ll guide you on your way

you’re the greatest gift
you’re the sweetest kiss
you’re the sunshine
you’re the finest joy we’ll ever know
you’re the greatest gift
you’re the sweetest kiss
you’re the sunshine
you’re the finest joy we’ll ever know

a child in arms is like a miracle
