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.

Stay Awake 02:41
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

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

When We Were 02:35
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

The Wolf 03:26
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

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

Brother 03:07
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

Mother 03:10
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

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.
