Track Name: I Have Named You The Queen
I Have Named You The Queen

I have named you the Queen
I have named you the Queen
There are taller
There are purer
There are lovelier than you
But you are The Queen

When you appear, all the rivers sing in my body
And bells shake the sky
And a hymn it fills the world
A hymn it fills the world
Only you and I
Only you and I

When you go through the streets
When you go through the streets

No-one recognises you, or the crystal crown you wear
Or the carpet of red and gold at your feet
But you are The Queen

When you appear, all the rivers sing in my body
And bells shake the sky
And a hymn it fills the world
A hymn it fills the world

Only you and I
Only you and I

Only you, and I
Track Name: I Trained A Spy
I Trained A Spy

I trained a spy
I did it for my queen and country
Don’t ask me why

I trained a spy
I did it for my queen and country
Don’t ask me why

I taught her everything she knows
Now MI5 have bugged the phones
I can feel it in my bones
And see it in her eye

She’ll break your heart as soon as blink
Slip a little sunshine in your drink
Dance you just beyond the brink
Before kissing you goodbye

Yes I trained a spy
I did it for my queen and country
Don’t ask me why

She led me down the hall of love
And when I thought I’d had enough
She offered me another puff
Before blowing me away

She left me writhing on the floor
Said I was her little whore
Despite it all I begged for more
Well, what else could I do

When I trained a spy…
Track Name: Right Thing
Right Thing

And I will try and do the right thing
And I will try and get it right
But if you see me stumble, baby
Will you still stay with me tonight?

And I will love you come the morning
Like you have never been before
But if you see me stumble, darlin’
Will you still walk out of the door?

Don’t you know that I want you now
Don’t you know that I want you now

It’s a long way down
It’s a long way down

And I will love you come the morning
Like you have never been before
But if you see me stumble,darlin’
Will you still walk out of the door?

And I will try and do the right thing
And I will try and get it right
But if you see me stumble, baby
Will you still stay with me tonight?

Don’t you know that I want you now
Don’t you know that I want you now

It’s a long way down
It’s a long way down
Track Name: Afterglow
Afterglow

Lying in the afterglow
The autumn sun is sinking low
Falling into fading light, just you and I
So sweet and tight

Moonlight on the water
Sailing away
Oh my baby daughter
Daddy gonna take the pain away

Letting go of all my fear, I disappear
Now I am not here
On the ocean of your embrace, your pretty face
Is a lighthouse
Guiding me safely home

Moonlight on the water
Sailing through the night
Oh my baby daughter
Daddy gonna see you right

And here in my floating room, October moon
Is rising, too soon
And in the darkness of the night,
The lantern light of the lovers
Throws shadows on the wall
They rise and fall
Track Name: Broken Angel
Broken Angel

We all come in alone
So very far from home
And we won’t know where we’re going
Til we remember, just where we’re from

And I’m singing Hallelujah
From the highest place
Well, it may mean nothing to you
But gratitude, is the same as grace

And you can rob me baby,
You can steal me blind
Take most anything
You’re broken angel, with a broken mind
Well we’re all doing time and what’s yours is yours
and what’s mine is mine

I hear we’re all in this together
From the cradle to the grave
Well the only thing that matters
Is that we kind and that we be brave

And I’m singing Hallelujah
From the highest place
It may mean nothing to you
But gratitude, is the same as grace

And you can rob me baby You can steal me blind
Take most anything
You’re broken angel, with a broken mind
Well we’re all doing time and
Track Name: Cold Dark Night
Cold Dark Night

It’s a cold dark night
And a cold wind blows
Your skin is hanging
Off your bones

All your friends and your lovers
Are in their beds
You are standing naked
With nothing but the moon
Above your head

It’s a cold dark night
A cold wind blows
You ain’t got nothing
Nowhere to go

And no owes you
No-one wants to know your name

You are standing naked ‘neath the moon
With nothing but your shame

It’s a cold dark night
A cold wind blows
A black dog howls
And a dead man moans

Deep in your belly
There’s a voice that keeps calling you home
But the wind sure is deafening
And you just make out just where it’s coming from.
Track Name: Laudanum Girl
Laudanum Girl

Well what can I do?
I don’t wanna live without you, darling it’s true
Something ain’t right
And I’m dying each night
That I’m not by your side

And I just can’t hold on
Everybody’s seems to think I’ve got it all wrong
But what do they know
They ain’t under the spell
Of a laudanum girl like you

Though I’m breathing in and breathing out
I just can’t seem to live without your love
Your warm sweet glow

I crave you, I do
Nothing else will satisfy my yearning for you
I’m twisting inside, going out of my mind
I’ve gotta get a fix tonight

And I just can’t hold on
Everybody’s saying: ‘son, she’s doing you harm’
But what do they know, they ain’t swallowed
the pearl

Of a laudanum girl like you

Though I’m breathing in and breathing out
I just can’t seem to live without your love
Your warm, sweet glow
Track Name: Golden Switch
Golden Switch

Hold me now, Lonliness
Hold me now, Emptiness

Don’t go looking for something to go wrong
Locate the Golden Switch and turn it on

At times like these, you could be over the rainbow
You could be riding above it all

Hold me now, Emptiness. Hold me now.
Hold me now, Lonliness. Hold me now.

Don’t go looking for something to go wrong
Locate the Golden Switch and turn it on

At times like these, you could be over the rainbow
You could be riding above it all.

And out here in the Universe,
So lonely out in Space,
You don’t have to be the first
When there’s no more second place.

Don’t go looking for something to go wrong
Locate the Golden Switch and turn it on

At times like these, you could be over the rainbow
You could be riding above it all.
Track Name: Don't Let The World Go By
Don’t Let The World Go By

Take off your boots
When you’re digging in the roots
And you will never be alone

Take off your shirt
When you’re digging in the dirt
And you will never be alone

Don’t let the world go by

Come over here
I can see you hiding there
Or would you rather be alone
If it ain’t so, and I dive in to your moat
Will you pull me out
Will you pull me out

Don’t let the world go by

Hang up your gloves, when you’re crying out for love
And you will never be alone
Hang up your coat
And burn everything you wrote
And start again
Start again

Don’t let the world go by
