Track Name: Golden Moments
GOLDEN MOMENTS

I can remember a time of laughter,
those golden moments when you were here
and I still love you, a lifetime after
my heart still sings for you but you don’t hear.

Those golden moments were long ago,
those shining hours we used to know.
Wherever you are... that's the place I want to be,
but memories of a time that was are all that's left to me

And though I call to you there comes no answer,
our time of wonder was long ago.
We were supposed to be with you here next to me.
If just once more our hearts could soar and never look below.
If I could hold you one more time I know...

Those golden moments, to feel once more
the autumn showers with you before our time was over
and it will never be the same.
If we could be, just you and me, together once again.

Those golden moments were long ago,
those shining hours we used to know.
The saddest part is, you're where my heart is.
So perfectly you came to be my lover and my friend.
Why did our golden moments have to end?
Our golden moments were long ago.

Track Name: Dawn Of My Career
The wheels are rolling on the Jubilee
don't want to stand there but you've got to,
another place that you don't want to be,
a voice inside you begs you not to,
but you keep heading straight down the track,
you can't be late and there's no turning back.

And when you get there it's the same old scene,
a thousand people but you're only
a poor relation of a computer screen.
A thousand people but you're lonely,
but in your mind its loud and clear...
"This is the dawning of my new career".

Now is the time for looking straight ahead,
so march in line the way your teacher said
and only listen to the words you want to hear...
"This is the dawn, this is the dawn of my career".

The clock is ticking and the email's in,
you've got to live the corporate culture.
No whistleblower's ever going to win,
say there's an issue they'll insult you.
No other way. Its crystal clear...
"This is the payment for my new career".

Don't tell me places that you long to be,
about the faces that you want to see,
"cause I'll remind you of the words you want to hear...
"This is the dawn, this is the dawn of my career".

When you recall the life you left behind you,
when you remember times from yesterday,
then you believe that happiness can find you in a hundred million ways.
But then it's "Mind the gap", and

another lifetime goes the same old way,
and though you think you're done you're going to stay.
You had to listen to the words you held so dear...
"This is the dawn, this is the dawn of my career".

Now is the time for looking straight ahead,
so march in line the way your teacher said
and only listen to the words you want to hear...
"This is the dawn, this is the dawn of my career".
