Track Name: See What You Can Find
FROZEN HEART BROKEN SMILE
THOSE DAYS THAT DON’T SEEM WORTHWHILE
DON’T SAY THAT YOU’RE GIVING UP
SOMETIMES ITS GONNA BE TOUGH

FOLLOW YOUR HEART BE TRUE TO YOUR MIND
LEAVE ALL YOUR TROUBLES BEHIND
HAVE A LOOK DEEP DOWN INSIDE
SEE WHAT YOU CAN FIND

OUT OF THOUGHT OUT OF TIME
RIGHT DOWN TO YOUR LAST DIME
DON’T SAY THAT YOUR GONNA QUIT
CAUSE YOU CAN GET THERE BIT BY BIT

FOLLOW YOUR HEART BE TRUE TO YOUR MIND
LEAVE ALL YOUR TROUBLES BEHIND
HAVE A LOOK DEEP DOWN INSIDE
SEE WHAT YOU CAN FIND


NO-ONE CAN SET YOU FREE THAT’S FOR YOU TO DO YA SEE
ALL THE STARS ALIGN IT'S FOR YOU THEY SHINE
IT’S FOR YOU THEY SHINE

FOLLOW YOUR HEART BE TRUE TO YOUR MIND
LEAVE ALL YOUR TROUBLES BEHIND
HAVE A LOOK DEEP DOWN INSIDE
HAVE A LOOK AND SEE WHAT YOU FIND
WHAT YOU FIND
SEE WHAT YOU CAN FIND
Track Name: It's All Happening Now
IT'S NOT BEEN ALONE THAT I FEAR
IT’S MISSING YOU MY SWEET DEAR
TIME HAS KNOCKED US AGAIN
IT’LL NEVER KEEP US APART

SO NOW IM TRADING IN THESE SHOES
FOR A BRAND NEW ATTITUDE
I HOPE THE’VE GOT MY SIZE
AND THEY FIT JUST RIGHT

DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME ON THE PAST
YES IT MAKES YOU BUT IT WON'T LAST
IT’S ALL HAPPENING NOW

IT’S GOOD WHEN WE DISAGREE
IT GIVES A SENSE TO BE FREE
THE DIFFERENCES IN OUR VIEWS
MAKES US STICK LIKE GLUE

MAY GOODLUCK DARKEN YOUR DOOR
THAT ALONG WITH SO MUCH MORE
ALL THE ANSWERS ARE DEEP INSIDE
WE JUST GOT TO GO AND FIND



DON’T LOOK FOR SOLUTION IN TIMES TO COME
FORTHCOMING EXPECTATIONS WILL OFTEN LET YOU DOWN
IT’S ALL HAPPENING NOW
IT’S ALL HAPPENING NOOOW
IT’S ALL HAPPENING NOW
IT’S ALL HAPPENING NOW
Track Name: A Country Job
WHATS WRONG MISTER YOU SEEM A BIT UPTIGHT NOT ALWAYS CAN THINGS GO JUST RIGHT
A BAD START CAN BE HARD TO SHAKE SOMETIMES EVEN HARD TO TAKE
IT'S NOT LIKE YOU DIDN’T TRY YOUR BEST ITS NOT LIKE YOU WOULDN’T PASS NO TEST
WHEN THE HAMMER FALLS AND THE DAY IS DONE YOU CAN GO HOME KNOWING THE SUN HAS SHOWN

IT'S NOT BAD FOR A COUNTRY JOB

SERVE YOUR TIME SERVE THAT APPRENTICE THE TRICKS OF THE TRADE ARE IN THE EXPERIENCE
LISTEN UP CLOSE PUT DOWN THAT PEN PERHAPS SOMEDAY YOU’LL BE TRAINING SOME MEN
THE WEEKLY WAGE JUST IS’NT ENOUGH THE BILLS AHOME ARE PRETTY TOUGH
UP AN UP YOU RAISE THEM UP IM NOT SURE THAT THEY’LL EVER DROP

IT'S NOT BAD FOR A COUNTRY JOB
IT'S NOT BAD FOR A COUNTRY JOB
IT'S NOT BAD………………….. PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY VOTE BUT DONT GET NO SAY
THIS COUNTRY'S DIRECTION ITS LIVING DAYS

SO MINISTER FOR FINANCE HOW DO YOU SLEEP NEXT TO ALL THAT POWER AND GREED?
GIVING TO THE RICH WHAT YOU'RE TAKING FROM THE POOR ALL THAT MONEY YOUR KEEPING FOR SURE
AND MINISTER ARE YOU GETTING YOUR FIVE A DAY?
YOUR BLOOD'S FLOWING BUT YOU'RE TURNED THE OTHER WAY
ELECTION YEAR YOU CONQUERED THE RACE BUT YOUR MAM NEVER THOUGHT YOU NO FAMILY GRACE
Track Name: Try Your Best
THAT CATS OFF AGAIN OUT INTO THE NIGHT
ONE THING IS FOR SURE HE GOT TROUBLE ON HIS MIND
AND YOU CAN BET YOUR LAST DOLLAR HE’LL RETURN BEFORE LIGHT
NEVER LEAVES NOTHING NO, NOT A TRACE BEHIND

IT’S HIGH UP ITS LOW DOWN
GOT TO HAVE THOSE FEET FIXED ON THE GROUND
HEAD TO THE EAST HEAD FAR OUT WEST
DON’T REALLY MATTER AS LONG AS YOU TRY YOUR BEST

NO REST FOR THE WICKED WITH ITS PRICE TO PAY
WHAT WAS YOUR MOTHER FEEDING YOU THOSE FIRST FEW DAYS?
STAND UP AND BE COUNTED OR MOVE ALONG YOUR WAY
THERES NO ONE TO BLAME NOW AND YOU GOT NOTHING TO SAY

IT’S HIGH UP ITS LOW DOWN
GOT TO HAVE THOSE FEET FIXED ON THE GROUND
HEAD TO THE EAST HEAD FAR OUT WEST
DON’T REALLY MATTER AS LONG AS YOU TRY YOUR BEST


NOW THE CATS GOT YOUR TONGUE
YOUR PRIDE WENT ASTRAY
YOUR MONEY'S NO GOOD HERE
I HEAR DARWIN IS A GREAT HIDEAWAY!?
Track Name: The Way The Wind Blows
DON WAS A TAILOR MAN WHO NEVER STOPPED TILL HE MET HIS PLAN
NOW HE SPENDS HIS DAYS ALONE WITH GLORIA
NEVER HAD HE KISSED ANYONE BUT SHE, SHE HAD IT ALL IN ONE
SHE KEEPS HIM ON HIS TOES WITH EVERY NOTE
GOOD FORTUNE CAME HIS WAY DO NOT KNOWING IT THEN THE PRICE HE PAID
PAVED THE WAY FOR THINGS TO COME

THAT’S THE WAY THE WIND BLOWS
IT NEVER STOPS DON’T YOU KNOW

RITCHIE HE COULDN’T SETTLE DOWN BETTER KNOWN AS TOWNSLAND CLOWN
HE’D SPREAD HIS WINGS LIKE A BIG OLD EAGLE
THE TYPE THAT WOULD JUST SWOPE IN THE TYPE THAT ALWAYS HAD TO WIN
A CHANCE MISSED WAS LIKE LOSING A WAR
THE DAY SHE SAID SHE WAS THREE MONTHS GONE HE SAID IM SORRY LOVE IM MOVING ALONG
ITS ONE OF THOSE THINGS HE’S ALWAYS REGRET

THAT’S THE WAY THE WIND BLOWS
IT NEVER STOPS DON’T YOU KNOW

THAT OLD JUNKIE HE ROBBED HIM
HE ROBBED HIM AND LEFT HIM ALONE
ALONE ON HIS OWN FAR FROM HOME
LOOKING FOR THE NEAREST WAY OUT
THAT’S THE WAY THE WIND BLOWS
IT NEVER STOPS DON’T YOU KNOW
