Track Name: Vienna
Got the train from Budapest
Made my way from
The East to West
When I woke up
It was dawn
And the city lights did call -
My name in
The urban sky.

Bought a drink from
The pigeon hole
When I saw that you were all alone -
With a charming young smile,
Never thought you'd be mine
But I -
Knew I couldn't let this go.

Vienna
I've been afraid to love
I've been away too long
To spend this night alone

Vienna
You've been running on my mind
Ever since I saw your smile
So darling -
Please come home.

Never gambled for a quick release
Never begged,
But I did say please.
Gave my heart a second chance
When I asked you for a dance
And you -
Placed your warming hands in mine.

Vienna
I've been afraid to love
I've been away too long
To spend this night alone

Vienna
You've been running on my mind
Ever since I saw your smile
So darling -
Please come home.

Dublin calls and I'm flying home,
Somewhere pure -
Somewhere safe and warm
But I'll come visit you in Sydney,
I won't ask you to be with me
But I'll -
Swing by just to say hello
Yes I'll swing by just to say hello.

Vienna
I've been afraid to love
I've been away too long
To spend this night alone

Vienna
You've been running on my mind
Ever since I saw your smile
So darling -
Please come home.

So darling please come home
So darling please come home
- with me.
Track Name: Treasure Chest
Steady on the hill -
Upwards, I insist.
Take me way back when,
Mountains did not exist.
Take it at your own pace,
To keep the race we chase
At a distant, familiar sound.
Free your inquisition,
Follow it and walk -
Through these unfamiliar stones.

I won't mind
If you want to take a chance -
A kiss, or one last dance,
That's fine.
I won't mind
If you need some time and space,
So gracefully with haste
But I won't
Be waiting 'round the bend -
For you.
Be wating 'round the bend -
For you.

So darling I send my regards,
And throw them right into the stars
For in my heart you'll -
Always remain.
Take your time and find the rest,
Just place it in your treasure chest.
But bare this in mind,
Bare this in mind.


If we go back to the start.
In our hearts
We'd fall in love – again
(x2)

Easy on your mind,
Trust your weary soul.
These roads will all unwind
'Til the lights do only show.

Take it in your stide, babe,
And keep the pride we ride -
At the brink of -
Your fingertips.

Because it's hard enough to swallow,
To liberate or seperate this -
Hearts that's on the mend.

Be it now or way back when when.
Maybe someday we'll be friends.
Maybe someday 'round the bend.

I won't mind
If you want to take a chance -
A kiss, or one last dance,
That's fine.
I won't mind
If you need some time and space,
So gracefully with haste
But I won't
Be waiting 'round the bend -
For you.
Be wating 'round the bend -
For you.

So darling I send my regards,
And throw them right into the stars
For in my heart you'll -
Always remain.
Take your time and fine the rest,
Place it in your treasure chest.
But bare this in mind.
Bare this in mind.

If we go back to the start.
In our hearts
We'd fall in love – again

If we go back to the start,
In our hearts we'd fall in love
In my heart I'd fall in love
With you,
Again.
Track Name: One Last Dance
Oh, I'd sink into your skin,
And I'd rest upon your bones
If you let me sink of swim
For another mile.

I – I'd take it on the chin, babe
Though I'd find it hard to cope,
If you turned the other cheek,
And let it go.

So if I found another way,
Would you run from this romance?
Or would you stay,
Would you stay
For one last dance?
I – I'd ask you all these questions,
About a life that I'll never know
And I'd hide behind your smile
And never let it show.

So then I'd close my eyes and whisper,
A gentle kiss in a moonlight glow -
And I'd toss it to the water,
To an endless flow.

So if I found another way,
Would you run from this romance?
Or would you stay -
Would you stay
For one last dance?

Ooooh – ooooh
Would you stay -
Would you stay for one last dance?
Track Name: If You Don't Mind
I – I – I, just wanna' fall
Into your slumber.
So come to the otherside,
If you want me to stay.
These visions of mine,
Are gonna' send me on my way.
So keep it on the downside
Before it starts to fade away

And If you don't mind, honey
If you
Don't mind, baby please (x2)

I – I – I, am a man
Of simple structure.
So don't crack these foundations,
For I'll never rise again.

These worries of mine,
Are gonna find there way to you.
So keep it on the downside,
Before it starts to reach you too.

And If you don't mind, honey
If you
Don't mind, baby please (x2)
Track Name: In Search Of Something New
Flicker of a blind eye,
I'll walk with you through the rain.
Taste this wine,
If it helps to eaze the pain.

I've been playing shadows,
For far too long now.
Chasing my tale
On this path that I must follow.

So if you ever feel like it's not enough
Close you eyes,
Close then shut
At night – night.
Take a drink and pass the cup,
Share the love that we never lost,
Tonight – night.
Stay with me and I'll keep you warm,
Walk with me and I will take you
Home – home.

So take my hand, darling -
Lets run away
In search of something new.

Breathe this life
The air is all so sweet.
Freshly fooled by grace,
You never let it show.

So take me higher,
To a place where hearts align.
And I'll be on my way
To love you like I do.

And if you ever feel
Like our time has passed
Free your mind,
While it still lasts -
And try – try,
To hold my hand through the darkest hour
I'll be the light if you be the sun
This time – time.
Take what's yours
And leave the rest,
We've had our worst
And now we'll have our best
- best.

Take my hand darling,
Let's run away -
In search of something new.

Let's sail away to another shore -
Fly away to another home
Be mine – mine.
Take my hand if you love me do,
Don't let go if you know it's true
Let's try
Follow me to a different place
And I'll catch you if
You ever fall from -
Grace – grace.

So take my hand darling,
Let's run away -
In search of something new.
Track Name: Hannah & The Cobblestones
Count your blessings,
Toss your coins -
If you believe
In supersition, baby.
It might sound crazy,
But don't lose hope.
You don't seem like
Any other lady - I know .

Read the signs, dear
They're pointed North.
So take the car
With all the purple windshields.
Take the highway -
Take the slow way.
And drive along
A Dublin Eastern shoreline.

You were born in the place
Where pretty girls roam,
Blue eye'd dreaming
By the trees
Of a playwright's favorite poem.

Pretty Hannah, little darling -
Won't you find your way to me.
Way down South is where I'll be -
Amongst the cobblestones of
All our dreams -
All our dreams.

Take a shot, dear
Make it last.
Print yourself a memory of
Kindness.

For some of us will change,
And some will remain -
A fraction of the boys
Who live in wonder.

So choose your cards now
Keep them align
If you faith is all you need
To keep us younger.

You were born in the place
Where pretty girls roam,
Blue eye'd dreaming
By the trees
Of a playwright's favorite poem.

Pretty Hannah, little darling -
Won't you find your way to me.
Way down South is where I'll be -
Amongst the cobblestones of
All our dreams -
All our dreams.

Hole you blessings,
Keep your coins.
See - there's no room
For superstition
Here, dear ...
