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

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

Milky Way 04:16
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

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

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

Be Mine 04:26
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

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

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

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

Down to You 03:11
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

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.
