Track Name: Johnny's Guitar
The sound of Johnny's guitar is like nothing I've ever heard before
When I heard it on the radio I knew I needed more

And the songs he plays on the radio waves
Fill my heart with sound (round and round it goes)
All my sorrow and fear just disappear
My feet take off the ground

And Johnny's guitar takes me far away from here
To my childhood days when everything was right
And Johnny's guitar makes me shed a little tear
All my memories of you come alive tonight

The sound of Johnny's guitar is with me even in my dreams
It sings and wails and whispers; it sweeps and cries and screams

And the songs he plays on the radio waves
Fill my heart with sound (round and round it goes)
All my sorrow and fear just disappear
My feet take off the ground

And Johnny's guitar takes me far away from here
To my childhood days when everything was right
And Johnny's guitar makes me shed a little tear
All my memories of you come alive tonight

How we lay beneath the moonlit sky (arm in arm)
How we kissed upon the beach in the sun

The sound of Johnny's guitar was in my head when I found love
It promised me heaven on earth and all the stars in the sky above

And Johnny's guitar takes me far away from here
To a golden future, shining oh so bright
And Johnny's guitar takes away my deepest fear
Like a shining star that's burning in the night
Track Name: Juliet Again
I didn't think we'd last forever (evermore)
But now the signs are saying never (never)
It breaks my heart in two
To see him hand in hand with you
While I am left behind with nothing but the pain

I feel like Juliet again with Romeo lost and gone
Feel like Juliet again, singing the same old song
All the darkness that surrounds my heart
Will light up in the end
But until that day I'm Juliet again

There is no happily ever after (no no no)
There's only tears and silent laughter (ha ha)
They say that I'm a fool
For spending all my love on you
If only in my heart I could just let you go

I feel like Juliet again with Romeo lost and gone
Feel like Juliet again, wondering what went wrong
All the darkness that surrounds my heart
Will light up in the end
But until that day I'm Juliet again

For every happy couple you see
There is a lonely girl who's just like me

I feel like Juliet again, looking for a friend
Feel like Juliet again, trying to understand

Juliet again with Romeo out of reach
I feel like Juliet again, trying to find some peace
All the darkness that surrounds my heart
Will light up in the end
But until that day I'm Juliet again
Until that day I'm Juliet again
Track Name: Earthbound
Those wings never tasted the wind
Still somehow they know its song
My soul heard the call ever since
Felt the longing, the unfulfilled

Thoughts of stone, they cling to my mind
And like chains they're holding me down
Oh, could I leave my sorrow behind
Could I let all worries go

The skies are so far
The clouds out of reach
The arms are so heavy
Ground is so close
The skies are so far
The clouds out of reach
A child of the wind
Earthbound

Silent voices are whispering
Talking dreams and mysteries
Of horizons never seen
And of worlds not even dreamed

The skies are so far
The clouds out of reach
The arms are so heavy
Ground is so close
The skies are so far
The clouds out of reach
A child of the wind
Earthbound

How does it feel how does it taste
To try the forbidden
How to see my own sun rise
How to wander among the stars

The skies are so wide
The clouds far below
The wings are so strong
Carrying home
The skies are so wide
The clouds far below
A child of the wind
Airborne
Airborne
Track Name: Lost in Broken Memories
Can you ever tell me
Why these arms aren't open
Why my heart is broken
Oh, I trusted you

Wherever you will go to
I will always think of you
My love will always find you
Forever in my dreams

Lost in broken memories
Lost in dying thoughts
Lost in dreams that will never come true
Lost in feelings for you

Do you still remember
You told me of the blue sky
Said you would teach me to fly
And now you let me fall

Wherever you will go to
I will always be with you
My grief will always find you
Forever in my heart

And still I'm lost in broken memories
Lost in dying thoughts
Lost in dreams that will never come true
Lost in feelings for you

I'm lost in broken memories
Lost in dying thoughts
Lost in dreams that will never come true
Lost in feelings for you
Lost in feelings for you
Lost in feelings for you
Track Name: 1998
I was thinking of you just the other day
And I wanted to call but didn't know what to say
I dug out the tapes that we used to play
Before you went away
Before you went away

It seems like yesterday we were reaching for the stars
We had our special way when driving in our cars
It seems like yesterday you were standing at my gate
While in reality it was 1998

We were queens in command with the world at our feet
We were facing the cold and defying the heat
You told me secrets on a stormy night
When I was by your side
When I was by your side

It seems like yesterday we were dancing late at night
While I was still afraid you looked me in the eye
It seems like yesterday I was begging you to stay
Yet in reality it was 1998

You promised me you'd never let me fall
Come hell or high water

Who's to say they're sorry
Who's to blame for it all
And why you let me fall
Why did you let me fall?

It seems like yesterday we were dancing late at night
While I was still afraid you looked me in the eye
It seems like yesterday you were standing at my gate
Yet in reality it was 1998

It seems like yesterday we were reaching for the stars
It seems like yesterday you were standing at my gate
It seems like yesterday we were dancing late at night
It seems like yesterday I was begging you to stay
Track Name: Relentlessly
When your hair is a mess and rain is pouring down
When your favorite dress has holes you cannot mend
When you are stranded somewhere in a one-horse town
And you think you can't find your way home

When you're all alone and no one's by your side
When your neighbor's cat keeps scratching on your door
When you're about to drown in all the tears you cried
And you think you can't take it anymore

Don't surrender, no matter what they say
There's someone who thinks of you
So hold on to your dream relentlessly
Just remember wherever you may be
There's a silver line in every cloud that you may see

When you're on your knees and nothing gets you up
When everything you do goes wrong beyond repair
When you think half-empty looking at your cup
And you just want to drown in despair
Just call on me and I will show you that I care

Don't surrender, no matter what they say
There's someone who thinks of you
So hold on to your dream relentlessly
Just remember wherever you may be
There's a silver line in every cloud that you may see

Don't surrender, no matter what they say
There's someone who thinks of you
So hold on to your dream relentlessly
Just remember wherever you may be
There's a silver line in every cloud that you may see

Don't surrender, don't surrender
Don't surrender, hold on to your dream relentlessly
Don't surrender, don't surrender
There's a silver line in every cloud that you may see

Don't surrender, don't surrender
Don't surrender, hold on to your dream relentlessly
Don't surrender, don't surrender
There's a silver line in every cloud that you may see
Track Name: To Smile Again
Hush now, don't say a word
Just hold me in your arms
Don't believe a word you heard
Just keep me safe and warm

Forget all about your friends tonight
Like I'll forget about mine
Whatever seems wrong will be all right
All we need is some time

Hush now, don't think no more
About the things we have done
Anger, jealousy and pain
Let it all just be gone

Forget all about the world tonight
And leave the trouble behind
Whatever seems wrong will be all right
All we need is some time

To say the words I'm sorry
To read each other's mind
To smile again and carry on
And leave the past behind

Hush now, don't make a move
I need you here with me
I'm sure we can start anew
Have faith and you will see

We'll fall in love again tonight
Like we did so many times
Whatever seems wrong will be all right
We're gonna make it this time
We're gonna make it this time
Track Name: Ride On
I'm so sad to see you leaving
But I know you have to run
From the moment that I met you
I knew this day would come
In the distance there are strangers
Coming down the Western Road
You have seen it all before
So better grab your things and go

'Cause you know, yes, you know
They are coming after you
And you know, yes, you know
You've got to run

Ride on till the morning hour finds you
Ride on through the night
Ride on to the ends of the earth
Ride on till you die
Ride on till you die

I'm so sad to see you leaving
But I know you have to run
From the moment that I met you
I knew this day would come
In the distance there are strangers
Coming down the Western Road
You have seen it all before
So better grab your things and go

'Cause you know, yes, you know
They are coming after you
And you know, yes, you know
You've got to run

Ride on till the morning hour finds you
Ride on through the night
Ride on to the ends of the earth
Ride on till you die

I can feel a storm is rising
There is thunder in the air
All the animals seek shelter
The raven and the hare
As you mount your milk-white stallion
I whisper goodbye
I pray they will never find you
Wherever you may hide

'Cause I know, yes, I know
They are coming after you
And I know, yes, I know
You've got to run

Ride on till the morning hour finds you
Ride on through the night
Ride on to the ends of the earth
Ride on till you die

Ride on until the day you reach the coast
Ride on, we're never far behind
Ride on, you leave the ones you love the most
You ride on, ride on, oh, ride on

Ride on till the morning hour finds you
Ride on through the night
Ride on to the ends of the earth
Ride on till you die
Ride on till you die
Track Name: The Sun's Song
A lonely candle in the night
Cutting darkness, shining bright
Strong enough to chase the shadows
But too weak to stand a blow

A lonely sun in endless space
Fights the cold with burning rays
Strong enough to warm our faces
But too weak to reach our hearts

The wind carries the flowers scent
Smell the lightness of being
In the warm breath of the sky
Summer's song across the earth

Dance, dance, laugh and sing
As long as the fire's still burning
Dance, dance, laugh and sing
For one thing is sure
There will be a new nightfall

High above the noise and the crowds
The treetops are green
The wind sings its age-old song
Clouds dance under the sun

Dance, dance, laugh and sing
As long as the fire's still burning
Dance, dance, laugh and sing
For one thing is sure
There will be a new winter

I feel your presence next to me
I hold your hand in mine
Your bright eyes, your loving smile
Makes my heart burn within

A lonely hour in the night
With burning candles shining bright
Strong enough to make us joyful
Strong enough to keep us one
Track Name: Fly
Ever since I am with you I'm a lucky woman
In my life there's so much joy just because of you

I could dare the dance on thin ice, go and fly in the storm
Walk on clouds in the air and laugh in the sun

You make me fly
Even if there are dark clouds on their way
You take me high
You make me fly
Even if my life leads me astray
You make me fly
Your eyes they need no words to say
You take me high
You make me fly
In your arms I just wanna stay

Come let's dare the dance on thin ice, go and fly in the storm
Walk on clouds in the air and laugh in the sun

We'll never give up, ever hold on, never give up
I'll never go, never leave you, I love you so

You make me fly
Even if there are dark clouds on their way
You take me high
You make me fly
Even if my life leads me astray
You make me fly
Your eyes they need no words to say
You take me high
You make me fly
In your arms I just wanna stay
Track Name: Here Comes the Summer
Everybody wants to dance with the backbeat
Everybody wants to surf on the waves
Everybody wants a break and some ice-cream
Being lazy on a sunny day

Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer

Everybody wants to swim in the river
Everybody wants to dive in the pool
Only I'm still at home with my guitar
Trying to write a song for you
I know that I am such a fool

Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer

I want to join the others getting cancer in the sun
But all that I can think of you
I'm swearing and I'm cursing and I don't get it done
'Cause all my lyrics just won't rhyme

Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Track Name: Clouds Are Passing By
(instrumental)
Track Name: Last Goodbye
I need to hide away the tears on my face
I don't want to cry, but I know
I'll be freezing without your embrace
And I'll think of you, think of you
Think of you every night
I will think of you
Think of you every lonely night

I watch you leave
As you walk down the street
In the dark of the night
But I know you'll return

'Cause this is not our last goodbye
Final vale, real farewell
I crave the day when you are free
To hold me safe in your arms

I try to warm my heart
With memories of your smile
I'll be there and wait, 'cause I know
Every day will be worthwhile
And I dream of you, dream of you
Dream of you every day
I will dream of you
Dream of you every single day

I see you draw near
As you walk up the street
In the break of the dawn
Yes, I knew you'd return

'Cause it was not our last goodbye
Final vale, real farewell
Today's the day and you are free
To hold me safe in your arms
