Track Name: Jimmy Carlyle
So many things that i want to say
But it doesn't matter anyway
'cause time moves on and now i'm still here
Living through another year
You'd want me to live so that's what i'll do
Living life for me, but remembering you
The world still turns and the crops still grow
Soon the sun will melt this snow

You used to sing "Waes Hale" at the top of your lungs,
Play the mandolin and sing in foreign tongues
You weren't a saint but you tried to make people smile
And when your moment came you showed no fear
Because you tried to enjoy every day you were here
You made it all worthwhile, Jimmy Carlyle

and this time when i came to stay
i held your hand as you passed away
and when i was there in your house alone
i still felt like it was your home
I sat in your chair and put your records on
But it wasn't the same because you had gone
And though i accept that you have died
There'll always be a part of you inside

You used to sing "Waes Hale" at the top of your lungs,
Play the mandolin and sing in foreign tongues
You weren't a saint but you tried to make people smile
And when your moment came you showed no fear
Because you tried to enjoy every day you were here
You made it all worthwhile, Jimmy Carlyle
Track Name: So Tired...
I stayed sane, so far
Though i look the same, you can't see the scars
But i'm tired, so tired, of it all.

I been running from a certain kind of love
You know it feels like a judgment from above
But i'm tired, so tired, of it all

It's been a lonely nightmare, but now i'm going home
And now the sun is rising, i've lived to see the dawn
But i'm tired, so tired, of it all
Track Name: Strange Skies
The rain had just stopped
We were there on our own
And we didn't know what would come next
The last falling drops
Crashed like bombs to the ground
As we took our first tentative steps

But now we can go home
No one will stop us and we can have ice cream
And we won;t go out
Under those strange skies again

Now we're inside again
Put the kettle on then
Take your coat off and we'll have some tea
And we won't go outside
We'll just stay in and hide
I'll be with you and you'll be with me

But now we can go home
No one will stop us and we can have ice cream
And we won;t go out
Under those strange skies again

Under those strange skies,
Under those strange skies,
Under, under those strange skies again
