Track Name: Once in A Lifetime
ONCE IN A LIFETIME
Words and music by Phoenix J

You asked me if I mind
You needed to take some time
I'll find somebody else
Still I'd need nobody else
For once in your lifetime I say
Once in your lifetime
You'd go where you know there is nobody else but me

But I'll let you go
I'll let you leave
I'll let you say goodbye cos you can't handle this
I'll let you go honey
I'll let you be baby
I'll let you say goodbye cos you can't handle me

We've been together now
It's been for quite a while
Yet you never told me how
You had a ride so wild
For once in our lifetime I thought
Once in our lifetime
We'd go where we know there is nobody else but us

It'll be three thousand days
Still I'll miss you in many ways
Though I'll find somebody else
Still I'll need nobody else
For once in my lifetime
For once in my lifetime
I'll go where I know there is nobody else but you
Track Name: She's Over You
SHE'S OVER YOU
Words by Phoenix J
Music by Recky Reck

Unfriendly faces
Overcrowded places
Aimless races
You wonder why the sky's so bright
You used to be among them
She used to care about them
But you left her standing all alone in the darkest night

But you see her now in someone's care
He loved her when you weren't there
Don't go acting so surprised
You left her, you were so unwise
When you passed her by
You made her cry
I asked you why
You let her fall into the arms of some other guy
So don't ask me why
She's over you

She had the brightest smile
You could run a thousand miles
When you see her pretty eyes
Beaming across at you
Then when she asked for more
You didn't like what's in store
Ran a thousand miles from her
That was the line you drew

It's too late
There's no use in crying
She's over you
There's no point in trying

You passed her by
You made her cry
I asked you why
You let her fall into the arms of some other guy
So don't ask me why
She's over you
Track Name: Milky Way
MILKY WAY
Words by Peter Martin
Music by Phoenix J

Baby I am waiting
Waiting for you to come beside me
Maybe I am hoping
That you'd always stay right beside me
It's crazy I am feeling l
Like I'd never come down from heaven
I'm dizzy but I'm dreaming
Of a fantasy storybook romance
And then I hear you tell me...

I'll always love you under the Milky Way
I'll always need you under the Milky Way
I only care for you under the Milky Way
Want no one else but you under the Milky Way

Hold me hold me closely
Wrap your arms tightly all around me
Touch me reach inside me
Can you see how you mean the world to me
Kiss me let your lips go
On a journey down my body baby
Feel me, understand me
Let my heart and my soul tell you
Track Name: Are You Happy
ARE YOU HAPPY
Words and music by Phoenix J

Are you happy?
Cos I am happy
Oh so happy
Be happy with me

Don't say goodbye
Don't say goodbye
Won't see you cry
Not before I die
Track Name: Still You're There
STILL YOU'RE THERE
Words by Phoenix J
Music by Recky Reck

You were the one though we'd just met
You were the Sun that I can't forget
But I don't wanna love you
And I don't wanna need you
You were the cure but I'm not so sure
I don't want a cure I'd be so pure
I just wanna fly free I just wanna be me

Still you're there for me
You would die for me
You would cross the sea
Just to be with me
Oh I can't take this anymore
How I love you

You are my life I can't do without
Now you're my wife without any doubt
And I get to fly free and I get to be me

Never thought it could feel any closer
Never thought it could feel any better
Than when you hold me, you love me
You make me feel secure
Only now is it clear why I needed you
You're the only man I look up to
Are we meant to be together forever
Track Name: Angel on My Knee
ANGEL ON MY KNEE
Words and music by Phoenix J

You came into our world without a care
You approached things with a do and a dare
Your mummy and your daddy never held back a hug
You'd scrape a knee but you would still pick yourself up
Seeing you now, reminds me when...

There's an Angel on my Knee
And he's smiling up at me
Don't you ever lose that Angel smile on me

And then you'll grow up and you'll go into your own world
You'll have your share of heartaches and the girls
You'll tackle it all like you'll tackle a dirt
You'd brush it off, get back on the bike like it doesn't hurt
See you now, reminds me when...

I care about not watching over you enough
I want you to share and talk and not be too tough
That it's okay to cry like it's okay to laugh
Tears from both heal better than doctor's alone every could
But seeing you now, tells me you're okay

You're an Angel on my Knee
And you're smiling up at me
You're an Angel on my Knee
And you're smiling up at me
You're my Angel on my Knee
And you're smiling up at me
You're my Angel on my Knee
And you're smiling up at me
So don't you ever lose that Angel smile on me
Track Name: Be Mine
BE MINE
Words and music by Phoenix J

Life has been unkind Love is hard to find
I reached the end of the line And then you became mine
I was feeling so blue Then my eyes fell on you
Your face a laughter Your arm my shelter
The world grew dimmer The pain as melt away

I have seen a baby grow Like a bud in the winter snow
I have seen a baby glow Like the sun that is rising now
Be my baby Be my baby

I don't know what I'd if God had not made you
I wouldn't have a clue till I heard the sound of your tune
The sky's now brighter than blue As my eyes fell on you
My heart beat faster, my hurt is answered
My home draws nearer, the future lights my way

Two have now become one I'm no longer alone
Where I was empty you're there to fill me
Your love surrounds me and all else melt away
Track Name: Illusive Dream
ILLUSIVE DREAM
Words and music by Phoenix J

You're just a little closer
You're coming out on your terms
You won't stay under a cloud
You're gonna make us so proud
It's getting clear as day
We'll steer clear out of your way

Don't stop chasing 3x an Illusive Dream

You're coming in from the cold
And leaving your past on hold
And you won't turn the hands back
You're gonna stay right on track
It's getting clear as day
We'll steer clear out of your way
Track Name: Let The Phoenix Fly
LET THE PHOENIX FLY
Words by Peter Martin
Music by Joan Martin

Every future has a history
One's a given, the other a mystery
Don't stoke the ashes let the past be past
Make this moment last
Make a brand new start Learn to play a part
It can only make your life burn brighter

Just let the Phoenix fly
let the Phoenix fly
let the Phoenix fly
let the Phoenix fly
let the Phoenix fly

From forgiveness comes redemption
No more how and why, Only when
We're making something like no other
A friendship just like brother and brother
Only now we're lovers from an ember
The flame (flame) is burning brighter

You'll discover we have the power
Take a chance and we'll surprise
You'll discover we have the power
Take a chance and we'll survive
Track Name: Once in a Lifetime (Take One)
ONCE IN A LIFETIME
Words and music by Phoenix J

Still I'd need nobody else
For once in my lifetime
I thought once in my lifetime

I'll let you leave
I'll let you say goodbye cos you can't handle this
I'll let you go honey

Track Name: A Fool's Paradise
A FOOL'S PARADISE
Words and music by Phoenix J

I'm living a fool's paradise
But the scales would fall from my eyes
I've a thorn deep down on my side
And now I need a shoulder to cry

If I could only make it
I'd be a labour of love
And if you would help me make it
I'd be a labour of love
I'm an open book, just take a look
And you'll see

I've turned the lights on but nobody's home
My friends surround me still I'm all alone
Well there's a story where the seeds are sown
That what I need is a life of my own

Maybe one day I'll take to the skies
And somehow I'll see paradise
That'd be a thorn deep down on my side
But you would be my shoulder to cry
Track Name: Down to You
DOWN TO YOU
Words by Phoenix J
Music by Dan Sturgess

You keep me hanging on the edge of my seat
I'm pinning back my ear, holding it to the ground
I'd do it at the drop of a hat if it's down and dirty
I won't be all dressed up with no where to go
So it's down to you

Down down down down down down down down to you
To hold back the door
Down down down down down down down down to you
To lead on the floor

Think I'm in seventh heaven, feeling very peachy
If that's what they mean when you
Separate the boys from the men
I'll be glad to let you paddle my canoe
But it's all down to you
Track Name: I'm Always Chasing Rainbows
I'M ALWAYS CHASING RAINBOWS
Music by Harry Carroll
Lyrics by Joseph McCarthy

I'm always chasing rainbows,
Watching clouds drifting by.
My schemes are just like all my dreams,
Ending in the sky,
Some fellows look and find the sunshine,
I always look and find the rain,
Some fellows make a winning sometime,
I never even make a gain,
Believe me.

I'm always chasing rainbows
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain.
