Track Name: Stolen Boat
The furthest west you'll go,
on the sunshine coast,
it's raining everyday,
I think I'm gonna stay,
But if I have to go I guess i'd steal a boat
and I'd row, row, row, till I can't see the shore

And I'd row, in my stolen boat
When I reach some other shore,
I'll be shipwrecked once more, once more.

Under another sky
I catch a strangers eye,
but I've got a foreign smile,
and I'm humming all the while,
with nothing left to sell the stormclouds start to swell,
and it rains, rains, rains, it's time to move again.

Chorus

Floating if I'm thinking,
Hope the boat's not sinking, no.
Track Name: Falling Sand
Everybody's worried about their little selves,
the sunrise in the morning and I know you as well,
With each rotation from this great plain,
I will see the moonshine once again.

and there it happens again

Falling sand can show you how much time is left,
and it can make you worry about every little mess,
and as a new day rises on your white shores,
how much has fallen won't matter anymore.

and there it happens again
Track Name: Shoot Your Man
I said 'I'm a simple man"
I try my best to avoid even raising my hand,
but I've thought all night about it,
It's rolling around in my head, and there's no doubt about it...

I said I'm gonna,
Shoot, shoot, shoot your man
and there's not too much you can misunderstand,
shoot, shoot, shoot your man,
try my best to keep the blood running,
I'm gonna shoot, shoot, shoot your man,
and there's not too much you can misunderstand,
I'm gonna, knock him down just where he stands.

You see that girl, I've known, known too long,
long enough to know 'tween what's right and wrong,
as of late, you see, her smile has gone,
it's plain to see that the time has come

chorus (Just where he stands, I know where he stands)

You see the fire burns bright for peace for reality,
Come Come! with the shot with the reggae stylee,
Come Come! with the shot, with the rhythm on the rocks,
reggae on the rocks, the rocks, the rocks (oh)

I've gotta do this before it's too late,
gotta drain out the pond before you get a lake,
he's gotta go, so I can take his place,
like a man without a home it's just Take Take Take

chorus
Track Name: Sweet, Wild Life
Found a place to hide, for a little while,
a little sanctuary where I can empty my mind,
My only destination, is to find some isolation here,
a moment of meditation, to render my mind clear.

Now I sit on my stone and watch the waves roll by,
free from the game of thrones and the words upon the sign,
telling me don't cross that line.
Oh, Sweet Wild Life.

No roots, no growth, is what I was once told,
and I have carried these warm words with me through the cold,
and I've been looking for soft ground, to bury my feet,
but I have yet to find the soul, within this hard concrete.

chorus
Track Name: City Lights
Well I spend most of time,
staring at the sky,
taking in the rays of the moon.

And just the other night,
I asked if it would be alright,
if she could rip my soul away.

So what's the worst that could happen,
if I were to let go,
and let the moon rip my soul away?

Oh the city lights, oh the city lights,
the way they light up the night sky,
well they're nothing compared to you.
Oh the city lights, God damn they shine bright,
but they're nothing compared to you.

Cuz every night you seem to change,
and everybody seems to act the same,
show me where you are tonight.

Cuz I know you're there when I look away,
and you'll be back on another day,
I'll miss you when the feeling is right.

Chorus.
Track Name: Disrespect
I don't mean no disrespect,
but you've got to know where I'm coming from.

Hold your head up high and don't get so down,
there's more reason to smile than there is to frown,
Hold your head up high and don't get so down,
there's more reason to smile than there is to frown,

Chorus

When the sun don't shine and the sky is grey,
cheer your loved ones up with the words you say,
when the sun don't shine and the sky is grey,
cheer your loved ones up with the words you say,

Chorus (pick it up!)
Track Name: Ukulele Lovin'
Oh Ukulele, you've always got that special touch,
even if I haven't picked you up,
Oh, Ukulele, you've always got that special touch,
even if I haven't seen you much lately.

You know I haven't seen you as of late,
but I always miss the way you sing when we played,
Six-strings NO, bring it down to four,
I always loved the way you wailed, on the floor.

Chorus

Four strings of white, I'd pluck you anytime,
loosen up that G-string cuz I'm coming home tonight,
and you can sing it down low, sing it way up high,
four hard lanes of highway MY GOD
(must be a sign!)

Chorus
My Ukulele,
oh so sweetly,
when the morning comes...
