Up above My head, there is blue sky, below my feet there is dark, somewhere in the middle there is me, lost in thought.

UPON THE SEA : Words and Music by Steven Jackson

A man adrift at sea dreams of a place that he would rather be
Felling sick to his stomach as the waves heave him up and down again
But there is hope a light beckons on the horizon to set him free
And a lifetime passes before his eyes as he rests upon the sea
Upon the sea.

But that was a lifetime ago when an ocean felt like tears upon a veil
And loneliness wasn't right taking comfort from the blowing of a whale
With the sea you pass a thousand years and you learn to quickly face your fears
And a lifetime passes before your eyes as you gaze upon the sea and sky
So warily upon the sea.

I just want to let you know how I feel
This is something that I'd rather not conceal
Close your eyes the sea will sweep you off your feet
Don't ever throw in the towel admit your defeat.

A man adrift at sea can't think of a place he'd would rather be
At home amongst the waves he dreams of a life that he has saved
And he is home he feels the tears welling in his eyes
Certain assurance from a lifetime that passed him by
Now he is free upon the sea
Now he is free upon the sea.

PLEASE TELL ME WHY : Words and Music by Steven Jackson

Look at you
Now look at me
The Earth and sky
And the place in between
The setting sun
And the rising Moon
If only we could co-exist like them too.

I close my eyes
And I drift away
To another time
To another place
Please tell me why
With all of Heaven above
We cannot find peace on Earth
We cannot find the love.

I don't know what it is I'm trying to do
But the only thing that's working is me and you
I don't know what it is I'm trying to say
Please tell me why
Please tell me why.

So when you think
You've finally found your truth
Climb up a ladder
And stand upon your roof
Then gaze upon
The world that's waiting below
Are you feeling small
Feeling insecure.
Please tell me why
With all creation below
We watch the ripples we create
With the stones we throw.
Please tell me why
With all of Heaven above
We cannot find peace on earth
We cannot find the love.

I don't know what it is I'm trying to do
But the only thing that's working is me and you
I don't know what it is I'm trying to say
Please tell me why
Please tell me why.

Look at you
Now look at me
The Earth and sky
And the space in between
The setting Sun
And the rising Moon
If only we could co-exist like them too.

SHE WALKS : Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

And she walks through the storm
And the wind blows through her hair
Wasn't concious of losing him
Walked into another life looking behind.
I sense a change coming on
The darkness above my head is moving on
I turn my head as the Sun reaches out to me
Watching the shafts of light kissing the sea, kissing the sea.

Walks to find another side of herself
She walks to see the images inside her head
She walks to rediscover what it is to be alive
Never looking back at trails left behind.
I sense a change coming on
The darkness above my head is moving on
Turn around as the Sun reaches out to me
Cannot help but stare in disbelief.

She sent you a ghost of a smile
To keep you happy for awhile
Separated by many years
You've climbed to the summit of your fears.

Viewing the past through rose-coloured eyes
Tends to mask the present in disguise
Awkward silences fill the air
Undermine the memories that you've shard.

She's not there, she's not there, she's not there !

And she walks through the storm
And the wind blows through her ahir
Wasn't concious of loving him
Walked into another life never looking behind.
I sense a change coming on
The storm clouds above my head are moving on
Turn my head as the Sun reaches out to me
Watching the shafts of light kissing the sea, kissing the sea.

MY BEST FRIEND : Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

These are words to you I'd like to send
I'd like to thank you for being my best friend
You stuck with me when all was dark
Kept me together when I was falling apart
You were the one who held a candle up for me.

I'd like to say I'm the luckiest man in the world
You ease my pain and you take away the hurt
You never let me feel alone
Gave me shelter, gave me a home
You were the one who gave me light when all was dark.

And I will never stop saying how much I love you
And I will never stop saying what it is you mean to me
And I will never ever take you for granted
Oh this I mean, this I mean.

I pray that you will never ever leave me
I pray that you will always be there by my side
And if we ever have to part
I know that day will break my heart
I can't imagine life being without you.

They say all good things must come to an end
I'd like to thank you for being my best friend
You stuck with me when all was dark
Kept me together when I was falling apart
You were the one who held a candle up for me.

UP ABOVE MY HEAD : Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

Up above my head
There is blue sky
Below my feet
There is dark
Somewhere in the middle
There is me
Lost in thought.

Trying to make sense
Of a crazy world
When nothing makes sense
To me at all
We're all just looking
For the answers
Hoping for more.

Is this all there is ?
Do we continue when we die ?
Do the bad souls descend to Hell
While the good souls rise to the sky, ah Heaven.

Are we just pawns
On a giant chessboard
Being moved
By some power above
Are we just actors
On a stage
Looking for love.

Walking blindly
With nowhere to go
Watching ourselves
As we age and grow
Staring in the mirror
Staring at the sky
Waiting to die.

Is this all there is ?
What happens when we die ?
Does being bad condemn you to Hell
While being good means you rise to the sky, ah heaven.

Up above my head
There is blue sky
Below my feet
There is dark
Somewhere in the middle
There is me
Lost in thought.

GOODBYE (To You My Friend) : Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

Goodbye to you my friend
I can clearly see the end
There's been laughter
There's been pain
But I would do it all again
Goodbye to you, goodbye
Goodbye.

Goodbye to a world so blue
It saddens me what we've done to you
I hear you crying in your pain
I'd like to take it all away
Goodbye to you, goodbye
Goodbye.

Goodbye I will close my eyes
Goodbye please do not cry
Don't be sad I'm leaving you
It's the only thing to do
Goodbye to you, goodbye
Goodbye.

Goodbye to you my friend
This is feeling like the end
There's been laughter
There's been pain
But I would do it all again
Goodbye to you, goodbye
