    If I Could Start Today Again
    All the kings and queens in the bible
    They could not turn back time
    So what chance have I of a miracle
    In this life of mine?
    I only want one day
    To unsay the things I said
    Undo the thing I did
    Twenty-four little hours
    Oh God! Please wipe them all away
    And I promise I will change
    If I could start today again
     
    I know I'm not the milk and honey kind
    Today I proved it true
    When the red mist falls around my eyes
    I know not what I do
    Please give me back today
    And I won't say the things I said
    Or do that thing I did
    Every minute, every hour
    The replay's just the same
    And I can't stand the shame
    Oh, let me start today again
     
    I only want one day
    One lousy day, that's all
    Of every day that's been before
    Since time began
    I know my prayer's in vain
    But for a second I'll pretend
    That I can start today again

    Change Your Mind
    Staring at the river
    Watching the water flow
    I can't stop the river
    Never, no
     
    If I could make the mountains
    Fall into the sea
    Maybe I could make you
    Fall for me
     
    (Would you) change your mind
    Change your mind, change your mind
     
    All the stars keep turning
    Wheeling all night long
    I wish you'd turn
    And hear my song
     
    If I could make wild horses
    Come and get their hay
    Maybe I could make you
    Sway my way
     
    (Would you) change your mind
    Change your mind, change your mind
     
    Maybe when you're sleeping
    I can make a spell
    And when you wake up
    I won't tell
     
    (Would you) change your mind
    Change your mind, change your mind

    Midnight Rain

    (Written by Paul Kelly and Wendy Matthews).

    Something woke me up
    Must have been the rain
    And for no good reason here you are
    Inside my head again
    I know I won't go back to sleep now
    I'm in a mood
    Must be the midnight rain, the midnight rain

    So I get up and I wander around
    In my dressing-gown
    Put the kettle on, some music too
    But not too loud 'cause the neighbours complain
    So I keep it soft and low, just above the sound
    Of the midnight rain, the midnight rain

    Yeah, you told me so
    I didn't want to know
    You sure told me so
    Don't you let a good thing go

    What coast are you on? What country?
    Is it raining there? Is it morning or midnight?
    Are you walking barefoot or have you got your shoes on?
    Is there somebody there with you?
    Are you talking soft and low underneath the sound
    Of the midnight rain, the midnight rain?

    I just want you to know wherever you are
    Wherever you go
    I hope you're under a lucky star
    Wherever you are
    By the way, have you still got that stupid car?

    I Close My Eyes and Think of You
    When another day has ended
    And everything's been said and done
    And the lights across the valley
    All go out one by one
    I close my eyes
    I close my eyes and think of you
    I close my heavy eyes
    That's all I need to do
     
    Sometimes when I get a moment
    In the middle of the day
    And nothing else needs my attention
    I take my chance and slip away
    I close my eyes
    I close my eyes and think of you
    I close my weary eyes
    That's all I need to do
     
    I hear the big trucks changing gears
    As they go rolling by my door
    The driver counts his days 'til he gets home
    If I could only count my days
    But I just don't know what's in store
    I've been so long on my own
     
    I know there's a singing river
    I've heard about the golden shore
    But I would pass by all that beauty
    Just to be with you once more
    I close my eyes
    I close my eyes and think of you
    I close my heavy eyes
    And that's all I need to do
    I close my weary eyes
    And that's when I think of you

    Somewhere In The City

    She’s somewhere in the city and the clock has just struck nine
    This great big city and I can’t get her off of my mind
    I called her today but, alas, she never got back to me
    Maybe I said something wrong
    Or something’s wrong with her message machine

    She’s somewhere in the city with a glass of wine in her hand
    This great big city with a lowdown sorry man
    It’s tearing me up bit by bit the way she runs hot and cold
    I so love her face but I sure worry about her soul

    She’s somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city

    She’s somewhere in the city but she might as well be somewhere on Mars
    This great big city with its nightlife, restaurants and bars
    So many places in the city for someone to have a good time
    On a night like this I feel like committing a crime

    She’s somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city
    Somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city

    Just About To Break

    Handle me with care
    I'm the answer to your prayer
    I, come from the great nowhere
    Step back! Give me some air
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break

    I've been dreaming some
    I'm a sleeping time bomb
    When I wake it won't take long
    I'll hit from here to kingdom come
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break

    They're gonna want to analyse me
    Canonise and demonise me
    Buy the rights and serialise me
    Moralise and sermonise against me
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break

    I'm gonna rock your head
    Start a burning in your bed
    I'm making gold from lead
    Multiplying fish and bread
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break

    My philosophy's eclectic
    Things round here are gonna get hectic
    There's no defence 'cause I got no tactics
    I sing the body electric
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break

    The thunderstorm is just above
    Every heart one day must cry enough
    I'm heaven sent to spill my stuff
    My heart, my heart is full of love
    I'm just about to break
    I'm just about to break

    I'm just about to break

    Love Is The Law
    Though I speak in tongues of angels
    And in many tongues of men
    Though prophecy may sing through me
    Without love I'm nothing
     
    Though I understand all mysteries
    And can see the story's end
    Though my faith can move mountains
    Without love I'm nothing
     
    Love is the law, the law is love
    Love is the law, the law is love
     
    You may give away your riches
    Do good deeds in the sight of men
    You may be strong against temptation
    But without love you're nothing
     
    Without love you're just useless
    Without love you're living in hell
    Without love you're so hollow
    An empty horn, a clanging bell
     
    Love is the law, the law is love
    Love is the law, the law is love
     
    Love can suffer hardship
    Love is tough and kind
    Love is never envious
    Or puffed up with pride
     
    Love is always truthful
    Love is never stale
    Love is always hopeful
    And never dreams that it can fail
     
    Love is the law, the law is love
    Love is the law, the law is love

    The Pretty Place
    Take me to the pretty place where once we used to run all day
    From silver dawn to golden setting sun
    Take me where the water flows and bumps along on pebbled stones
    And sweetly sings its never-ending song
    We're going to the pretty place, going to the pretty place
     
    Take me where the fishes swim and shimmer in and out of vision
    Underneath the hanging willow tree
    Do you remember Charlie Boots? He broke the rope
    Back on the slope we laughed so hard I thought I'd have to pee
    Going to the pretty place, the pretty place
     
    In my mind it's shining bright
    I've had enough of all this stuff
    Now I'm going to the pretty place
     
    I know our pretty place has gone, it's been so long
    And everything and everyone I know is moving on
    But though my eyes are growing dim, still I can see the fishes swim
    And I can hear that never-ending song
    I'm going to the pretty place, going to the pretty place
     
    In my mind I see the light
    I've never been so ready
    Now I'm going to the pretty place

    I Wasted Time
    I wasted time, now time is wasting me
    One question left-to be or not to be?
    I cheated time and now it's time to pay
    All out of change and less and less to say
     
    I was a handsome raver in my time
    Oh girl, you should have seen me in my prime
    I see old friends at funerals now and then
    It's down to this-it's either me or them
     
    Yeah, I wasted time
    Now time is wasting me
    Soon it's closing time
    Won't you stay with me?
     
    Molly took my hand and led the way
    Now Molly's yellow hair is silver-grey
    She wore a red dress she let me undo
    But Molly swears that day her dress was blue
     
    Yeah, I wasted time
    I thought it came for free
    Now it's closing time
    Won't you pray for me?
     
    I tell you there's no failure like success
    And no success like failure too, I guess

    Would You Be My Friend
    If I fell into confusion
    Got scared but couldn't say
    If I lost my rhyme and reason
    And threw away the gift of grace
    Would you be my friend?
     
    If they said I don't deserve you
    That my credit was no good
    If they told you I'm not worthy of your love
    And you should cut me like you cut dead wood
    Would you be my friend?
     
    And if you heard that I was on the town
    Pissing loudly on your name
    Would you find me, would you face me down?
    Though your ears burned with shame
    Would you be my friend?
     
    And if I said I wished I'd never been born
    And my mouth could only curse
    If I'd passed the point of no return
    Like a poor, puking child in church
    Would you be my friend?
    My only friend

    Smoke Under The Bridge

    All day long I've been walking
    And mostly to myself I've been talking
    The lonesome night is too quickly falling
    In this unfriendly town
    It's cold when the sun goes down
    So I'll head for the river and look for smoke under the bridge
    I'll keep on moving 'til I find smoke under the bridge
    A little shelter, a friendly fire under the bridge

    Once I had a place I could call my own
    Now wherever I lay my head is home
    Ran into some trouble back on down the road
    They didn't like the look of me
    Someone took a hook at me
    I'll keep my eyes open for smoke under the bridge
    Keep on hoping for smoke under the bridge
    A warm fire, some company under the bridge

    I'll keep on looking for smoke under the bridge
    Keep on walking to smoke under the bridge
    A little shelter, a friendly fire, some company under the bridge
    I'll keep on walking
    I gotta keep walking

    Gotta keep walking
