Track Name: Back to Liverpool
Back To Liverpool

It’s been a lifetime since I left those shores or so it seems
But every now and then I need some more
To satisfy my dreams
A chance to walk those broken streets again
In fifties monochrome
But being there brings so much pain
Because I know those streets are gone
And grass has grown around
Barely anything is left behind

So here I am heading back to Liverpool
I was there when the Beatles and the others made it cool
All I wanted was my own guitar
I couldn’t wait to finish school in Liverpool
Here I am heading back to Liverpool
I may have left the place back then but I’m no fool
Doesn’t matter where I live comes down to
How my heart is feeling as a rule
I’ll always be from Liverpool

Left the Mersey brown to travel cross the world to lakes of blue
And though I love it every now and then I yearn for what I knew
A chance to lose myself in days gone by
With friends I’ll never see
But they’re alive within my mind
So vivid in my memory
This place I once called home
I know I’ll never walk alone
Track Name: Can I Go With You
Can I Go With You Bob Oldfield

On the path as we walk
Over hills as we talk
Can I go with you, can I go with you ?

When the evening hour has come
And the daylight has all gone
Will you go with me will you go with me ?

Once upon a time ago a seed was sown and love began
And oh what joy it brought to you and me
Once upon a time ago a lover’s pact was made
That we would keep our hearts together endlessly

When I know my time has come
And my race on earth is run
And there’s nothing left to say
As I walk towards the sun
Will you hold my hand
Will you hold my hand
Can I go with you
Can I go with you
Track Name: Pull of Love
Across the room she sits
Her eyes and mine collide
She smiles a gentle smile
Across the room I’m drawn
Completely mesmerized
She smiles a gentle smile

So quickly, so unexpectedly
So surely the pull of love is pulling me

So out of nowhere floats
A silent voice that calls
She smiles a gentle smile for me
And out of nowhere comes
A heart that captures me
She smiles a gentle smile for me

So quickly, so unexpectedly
So deeply the pull of love is pulling me
Track Name: Mama Take Me Home
Tell my mama this time this time I’m coming home
Tell my mama this time I’m coming home
Been way too long since I’ve been gone

Tell my daddy not going back no more
Tell my daddy not going back no more
No more playing on that desert floor
I said no more playing on that desert floor

When I lay my head down want to find some peace tonight
When I lay my head down want to find some peace tonight
Got no more appetite to fight
Got no more appetite to fight
Been way too long
Been way to long, yeah it’s been
Way, way too long since I’ve been gone
Since I’ve been gone
Since I’ve been gone
Track Name: Time To Move On
It’s another rainy day in the neighborhood
The sun’s disappeared like they said it would
Nothing’s going to shine today
Nothing’s going to come my way
And I’m missing you

There’s another sad song on the radio
Pull down the blinds stay inside
Pass some time and try to let it go
Doesn’t matter what I say
Nothing takes the pain away
And I’m trying to be strong but it’s hurting
It hurts for so long


But what about those times we spent
Moments that were heaven sent
Don’t say insignificant don’t say hollow
Not sure what I’m going to do but hope is what I hold on to
Praying I can just get through to tomorrow

Draw a curtain round the world, keep it all outside
Can’t stand no more, shut the door
Hit the floor and find a place to hide
I’m not understanding why you won’t give it one more try
I don’t follow what you say
When you tell me that it’s not my day
I’m not sure what’s going on
I just feel like I’ve been trodden on
But if you give me one good reason
Then I’ll be certain it’s time to move on
