Track Name: No Man's Land
No Man’s Land

Em, Am, G, Em
She’s in no man’s land
I ask you Lord why was she dealt this hand?
She’s in tiny bits
I ask you Lord did she deserve all this?
And I’ll ask again
You’ve taken too much, you’ve taken her best friend
She’s against the wall, but it’s too hard to cushion her fall

C, D, Em
He said he’d always be there for her
But he meant in life.
How could’ve he seen this coming, I ask you God

Em, C, F, Em……..D
When they lay you to rest
We’ll think about the things that you did best
What does it mean?
What’s it for what could have been
I ask him above
He has no sound, he sends no love.
Track Name: Stay Awake
Stay Awake

Em, D, Bm, C

All I am, I give to you
You came in, and I slowed down.
Everything is different now
but I feel the same

I saw your face and time stood still
And I forgot, my life before now
In that moment
the rest of the world just fell away

C, D, D, Em

And I would stay awake
For a thousand nights
Just to know
You are alright
And I will sing for you
Til you come your eyes
And the stars come out
In the midnight skies

All I have, I give to you
I live to love you
Through and through
I’ll make this promise
That I will never let you down

I saw your face and time stood still
And I forgot, my life before now
In that moment
the rest of the world just fell away
Track Name: Roses & Swallows
Roses and Swallows

Em, D, C

The Roses and Swallows will know where I’ve been
They’ll know where I’m going and what I have seen
They’ll make time stand still and the world shy away
And my baby he’ll love me any which way
Ooooo oooooo ooooo oooooo
Track Name: When We Were
When We Were

F#m, A, D, A, F#m, E, F#m
I used to love the night
I think back on those times
Times we never felt so alive
How I’d love to do it all again

E,D
Ooooo we thought it would last forever
OOoooooo how were we to know?

D,E,F#m,E,D
D,E,F#m, E, D, A
I remember when anything seemed possible
I remember when we could dance all night long
I remember when we would drink until dawn
I remember when we were

F#m, A, D, A, F#m, E, F#m
We would sneak off in the night
Sharing kisses in the dark
We, we never felt so alive
How we’d love to do it all again
Track Name: The Wolf
The Wolf
Am/Am9, C/C9, G/G9
It’s a full moon tonight, I think she’s gonna howl at it
Shes taken more than enough
She’s bearing her teeth and a targets in sight
Well her eyes are crazy wide
She can take so much but she’s all backed up
But the moon is on her side
I wouldn’t be surprised if there was blood tonight

It’s a high tide tonight, I think she’s gonna swim in it
She’s washing away those words
Swimming out in the bright moon light
And the water feels so nice
She can swim so much but it’s not enough
But the moon is on her side
She might get lost in the tide tonight

F9, G9, C9, Am9
I see her true colours shining through
She’s not the person I thought I knew
I hope she’s proud of herself
She’s broken hearts and she’s backed up The Wolf
Track Name: Queen Boudicca
Queen Boudicca

Dm, Am, G9
How can I possibly say
My heart breaks when you turn away
How can stand it at all
My heart is so big but I feel so small
I don’t who I’ve become
A mess in the head or comfortably numb
I don’t like me around you, who is this girl and what does she do?

F/C, C/A
But it still gets through, and it sticks like glue
You don’t mean it to, but it’s what you don’t do…

Am, G, F, Em, Dm, Em, F, G
We’ll be Queen Boudicca
We’ll be Joan of Arc
We’ll take life to battle
We’ll all make our mark
We can see them coming we’ll prepare our swords
Cause we would rather die fighting than left wanting more X2

Come with me, I’m woman
Fight with me, I’m warrior
Stand with me, I’ll be there
Oooo oooooo
Track Name: Father
Father
(G,A) Dm, C. Bb, C
And my Daddy says – you’ll regret it when you’re old you should listen to your father
And ym Daddy says – I’ve seen it all before it’s just history repeating
And my Daddy says – has the world gone mad everyone is acting crazy
And my Daddy says - Oh, when I’m gone…

Bb, C, Dm
And I say
– Yeah, there’s gonna be a lot of painted people
Yeah, history repeats but we still don’t learn
Yeah, the world’s always been mad but now it’s just smaller
Yeah, oh

(G,A) Dm, C, Bb, C
And my Daddy says – Life’s too short you should spend it with your family
And my Daddy says - Who will be there if you don’t have children
And my Daddy says - Feels like yesterday but still I cant rememeber
And my Daddy says – Oh, when I’m gone…

Bb, C, Dm
And I say
- Yeah, life’s too short but we gotta earn the money
Yeah, No-one will be there if nobody cares
Yeah, I’m trying my best not to forget
Yeah, oh
Track Name: Brother
Brother
Cm, Cm/Ab, Cm/Bb
I tried to love you
After all these years
My blood, my brother
I will not waste another tear on you
Something grows within you and it’s blackened your heart
I never thought it would come to this
We can’t go back to the start

Cm, Ab, Bb
You don’t know me and your wrong
You can’t say those words and then shut out the world
Just deal with it and move on

Cm, Cm/Ab, Cm/Bb,
He tried to love you
And make things right
Your blood your Father
He’s so weary from this fight
You’ve closed your senses and lost a grip on what is real
Good bye my Brother, you’ve lost more than I could deal with
Track Name: Mother
Mother

(Riff on B & E. bass – E, A, C#, E)
Each moment each laugh each little hand
That reaches out to touch my face
And I fear my heart could burst if I feel any more of this love

C#m, E, C#m, B
I’d do anything for you, silly little things

E, E/C#, E/A, E/F#
No-one can hear us laughing, they wouldn’t understand anyway
No-one can hear us singing they wouldn’t know the song anyway

(Riff on B & E. bass – E, A, C#, E)
And when you light up all the bad is gone and I am fine
And when you grow up I will try to remember this time

C#m, E, C#m, B
I’d do anything for you, silly little things

E, E/C#, E/A, E/F#
No-one can hear us laughing, they wouldn’t understand anyway
No-one can hear us singing they wouldn’t know the song anyway X2
Track Name: Just One Life
Just One Life

Just one life just one chance we take
Don’t give up
It will be what you make
Let me try
Try and fail, try again
Pick me up, my skin just got thicker then

It’s taken all this time to find my way
If I don’t try then what is left?
If this is what I must do I’ll do it anyway
Take it or leave it alone.
