Track Name: Chameleon
Today my eyes have truly been opened
Tomorrow it'll happen again
They say sticks and stones can break your bones
But words they can lead you to heartache
I said don't you mind, it's just a matter of time
Before karma comes back round to find you

I've been compared Nothing's been spared
But I'm still here Lend me your ears . . .

Chameleon Let go and learn to live
Don't change your colours To fit in
Chameleon Be who you want to be
Stand up and show them You are free

Once I was so quiet and fragile
But now I look that demon in the face
And watched it run for miles
They say you know who your true friends are
The ones who will always stand by your side
I said don't you judge a book by its cover
Just dig a little deeper, there's much more to discover

I've been compared Nothing's been spared
But I'm still here Lend me your ears . . .

Chameleon Let go and learn to live
Don't change your colours To fit in
Chameleon Be who you want to be
Stand up and show them You are free

So please be strong and follow your dreams
You don't have to explain it to me
I've learned to love myself, it's true
Enjoy who you are
Be who you want, see who you want to
Chameleon Let go and learn to live
Don't change your colours .. To fit in
Chameleon Be who you want to be
Stand up and show them Show them you're free
Chameleon

Track Name: After All
Please trip them gently, they don't like to fall, oh by jingo
There's no room for anger, we're all very small, oh by jingo
We're painting our faces and dressing in thoughts from the skies, from paradise
But they think that we're holding a secretive ball
Won't someone invite them
They're just taller children (ooh) that's all, after all

Man is an obstacle, sad as the clown, oh by jingo
So hold on to nothing, and he won't let you down, oh by jingo
Some people are marching together and some on their own
Quite alone
Others are running, the smaller ones crawl
But some sit in silence, they're just older children
That's all, after all

I sing with impertinence, shading impermanent chords
With my words
I've borrowed your time and I'm sorry I called
But the thought just occurred that we're nobody's children at all, after all

Live your rebirth and do what you will, oh by jingo
Forget all I've said, please bear me no ill, oh by jingo
After all, after all
Track Name: I wasn't expecting that
It was only a smile but my heart it went wild
I wasn't expecting that
Just a delicate kiss, anyone could've missed
I wasn't expecting that

Did I misread the sign?
Your hand slipped into mine
I wasn't expecting that
You spent the night in my bed,
You woke up and you said
"Well, I wasn't expecting that"

I thought love wasn't meant to last,
I thought you were just passing through
If I ever get the nerve to ask
What did I get right to deserve somebody like you?
I wasn't expecting that
It was only a word, it was almost mis-heard
I wasn't expecting that
But it came without fear,
A month turned into a year
I wasn't expecting that

I thought love wasn't meant to last,
Honey, I thought you were just passing through
If I ever get the nerve to ask
What did I get right to deserve somebody like you?
I wasn't expecting that

Isn't it strange how a life can be changed
In the flicker of the sweetest smile
We were married in spring
You know I wouldn't change a thing
Without that innocent kiss, what a life I'd have missed

If you'd not took a chance on a little romance
When I wasn't expecting that
Time doesn't take long, three kids up and gone
I wasn't expecting that
When the nurses they came, said it's come back again
I wasn't expecting that
Then you closed your eyes, you took my heart by surprise
I wasn't expecting that
Track Name: Safe Travels (Don't Die)
Please eat your greens
and don’t sit close to screens,
your eyes are a means to an end.
And I would be sorry if, due to your hurry,
you were hit by a lorry my friend.
Like you always say,
Safe travels, don’t die, don’t die,
safe travels, don’t die.

Don’t walk on ice, no matter how nice,
how sturdy, enticing it seems.
Please cross at the lights
and don’t start fires or fights and
don’t dabble in heights on caffeine.
Like you always say
Safe travels, don’t die, don’t die,
safe travels, don’t die.

Don’t swallow bleach
out on Sandymount beach,
I’m not sure I’d reach you in time my boy.
Please don’t bungee jump
or ignore a strange lump
and a gasoline pump’s not a toy.
Like you always say
Safe travels, don’t die, don’t die,
safe travels, don’t die.
Track Name: Wide Eyed and Legless
Wherever I go and whatever I do
I seem to spend some of my time
Trying to turn the black night, blue
Well I'm tired of it all
It's the same thing every night
But the rhythm of the glass Is stronger than the rhythm of night

Wide eyed and legless
I've gone and done it again
Wide eyed and legless
This world is full of my shame
Shame, I can't get free from these chains
Oh, oh-oh (Instrumental)

Wide eyed and legless
I've gone and done it again
Wide eyed and legless
This world is full of my shame
Shame, I can't get free from these chains
Oh, oh-oh

I've been here before
But this time it feels like the end
I should've known better, I know
But my memory's no friend
Well, I've tried every thing
That I know will get rid of this fling
And I can't understand
Why I'm wide eyed and legless again

Wide eyed and legless
I've gone and done it again
Wide eyed and legless
This world is full of my shame
Shame, I can't get free from these chains
