Silent Man 04:50
Why speak When a look says a thousand words Leave me alone Give your bread to the birds I'll find my way From the lines in my hand I don't need or want you To understand. I make do, move on I work when I can I'm in no hurry I'm a silent man (2) Why stare At a face you don't understand At mistakes You think I've made I don't need the comfort Of your bible I'm not planning On being saved. I make do, move on I work when I can I'm in no hurry I'm a silent man (2)

There’s a strange kind of hush, all over this morning As the sun climbs the city, and peers to the sea The dust and the gunfire descends on the streets Fired by an army in the name of peace The first thing you’ll hear when this madness is done Is the crying of children, And the birds in song Mothers with children, they cower in their basements And pray to their god, that they will survive And out from the sun flies a lone jet pilot Who blesses himself as he prepares to dive The first thing you’ll hear when this madness is done Is the crying of children, And the birds in song National pride and national anthems Swell as the soldiers with precision march by But somewhere in our world lies a child unburied And the fighting continues The first thing you’ll hear when this madness is done Is the crying of children, And the birds in song

Autumn 03:20
Autumn sets her easel up so early in these hills Painting pastels on the landscape, as he poses standing still Waiting for the artist to trace the later dawns And painting in the wind now, as she hears the winter call Let me in he sang, o Lord let me in. Let me in he sang, o Lord let me in. Sheep know he’s coming, the winter and his song Written for the North wind, so mournful and so strong The hills now restless, impatient, posing still Autumn flushed now, she moves to paint the fields. Let me in he sang, O Lord let me in. Let me in he sang, O Lord let me in. The winter now stands over the artist and her paint And calls to the north wind, and sings he cannot wait The artist, frustrated, throws her palette to the fore The colours fall and mingle, as leaves to the forest floor Let me in he sang, O Lord let me in. Let me in he sang, O Lord let me in.

Moving On 04:07
Sitting here thinking Of the people I have known Who have taught me wit or wisdom, Left me memories I now own. And as I recall them now, They are a comfort to me Keep me safe when I am travelling, Over land or on the sea And I Keep moving on, But I’ll never forget where I’m from Though I may change the place that I call home I will never forget where I’m from Sitting here with those who now know me Telling them of those who made me, What I am, the one they see And if they should ask me who I will recall when I am old To those sitting here with me now, I shall remember you all. And I Keep moving on, But I’ll never forget where I’m from Though I may change the place that I call home I will never forget where I’m from And as I say goodbye In the only way I know yet If I never know another soul, I know I’ve known the best And I Keep moving on, But I’ll never forget where I’m from Though I may change the place that I call home I will never forget where I’m from
