Track Name: The Hunter
I was hunted through the sky
A shot from below sent me spinning
Now I'm lying in black water
I can hear the dog swimming
And his breath comes hot
Thought his mouth is soft
With me clutched in his jaws
Swim me softly to shore

I was hunted through the night
A blow from behind set me falling
Now I'm lying
In feathered shadow
I can feel his eyes on me
And his breath comes fast
Oh, his eyes are dark
Two hands 'round my throat
He's ending me
Track Name: Rear View Mirror Baby
There's a spectre on the road behind, she flits across the plain
A shimmer on the plateau, a derbish howling pain
Speeding through the shadows, you think you got her beat
Road in front is clear but something moves in the back seat

Always see you
I don't wanna be your rear view mirror baby
Always see you
I don't wanna be your rear view mirror baby

Can you feel my fingers trailing down you arm?
Can you feel my embrace closing round your heart?
Love can cut the distance, cross the great divide
Love will resurrect us on the other side

Always see you
I don't wanna be your rear view mirror baby
Always see you
I don't wanna be your rear view mirror baby
Track Name: Watch the Dog Grow Old Together
I thought that we'd watch the dog grow old together
I thought that we'd watch her movement slow together
See how time clouds her eyes, her loving has always been blind
Her loving has always been blind

Thought we'd take turns lifting her into the car
And hand in hand we'd watch her stagger round the park
Remember when she was young, lithe like a cheetah in the sun?
Our life had just begun

When her time came we'd help her to leave with grace
Kiss her dear head and guide her to her final resting place
We'd cry a thousand tears, you'd hold me in your arms
Our love would be a balm

I thought that we'd watch the dog grow old together
I thought that we'd watch the dog grow old together
Track Name: Sweet Release
We got a good life, we got a good life
And we've seen the sun shine, we've seen the sun shine

Show me the way to a higher plane
Touch with intent
This sweet release is
Oooooh

Just one kiss, just one kiss is all it took
To awaken a part of me I'd given up for dead

Show me the way to a higher plane
Touch with intent
This sweet release is
Oooooh

Will we fall, will we fall
Or just give up, just give up?
Will we fall, will we fall
Or just give up, just give up?

Show me the way to a higher plane
Touch with intent
This sweet release is
Oooooh
Track Name: Only Wanna Be
Oh it's no use, it's no use, it's no use
'cos I only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are

I thought about a country life down south
I'd let the river roll my tears on to the sea
But my heart would wither and die
Frozen blossom in the night
It's your love that sustains me

Oh it's no use, it's no use, it's no use
'cos I only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are

I'll cross the fractured waters on my own
Wear an open face as my disguise
But my sight will flicker and fade
Sunlight sinking into shade
Blind from scanning the horizon

Oh it's no use, it's no use, it's no use
'cos I only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are

It's a big wide world out there
It's a big wide world out there

Oh it's no use, it's no use, it's no use
'cos I only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Only want to be where you are
Track Name: Like a Stone
If there's no love you've got no home
Where will you go, where will you go, where will you go?
You won't be hanging 'round
Watching the lovers laughing in the lane
Where will you go, where will you go, where will you go?
Where will you go, where will you go, where will you go?

You'll sink like a stone
You'll sink like a stone
You'll sink like a stone
You'll sink like a stone

If there's no God, you got no soul
Where will you go, where will you go, where will you go?
You won't be hanging 'round
Watching the mourners walk you to your grave
Where will you go, where will you go, where will you go?
Where will you go, where will you go, where will you go?

You'll sink like a stone
You'll sink like a stone
You'll sink like a stone
You'll sink like a stone

You got so much love
So much light
Use them for paving your way through the night
You got so much love
So much light
Use them for paving your way through the night
Track Name: Infidel
Infidel, infidel
I hope you'll cross over, infidel

I want to see your body bathed in blue light
I want to feel my fingers trace stars, incandescent 'cross your eyes

Infidel, infidel
I hope you'll cross over, infidel

It's not about sacrifice, so let that beast go
See him gallop from the knives and come to rest in the meadow

Infidel, infidel
I hope you'll cross over, infidel
Track Name: Dark Summer Dawn
Idle tears I have cried
Burning tracks from my eyes
Those birds of prey
Are closing in
They're circling
Dark summer dawn

Idle tears, let them fall
Join the dew of the dawn
Those birds of prey
Are closing in
They're circling
Dark summer dawn
