Track Name: Today Tomorrow
Sunlight in your hair
Sunlight in your eyes
Sunlight on your skin
Sunlight within
Beauty in the way
You comb your hair
In the morning

Beauty you deserve
Beauty that you earned
Beauty never left you did it
Beauty will never leave you will it
Beauty will never leave without you

Moonlight in your eyes
In the evening light
Moonlight in your hand
In the palm of your hand
Beauty in the way you read
Your book in the evening

Music in your voice
Music in your soul
Music through your window baby
Music through your doorway lately
Music in your footsteps maybe

I love you too much baby
You love me too much maybe

Beauty in the light
And in the summer night
Beauty in your stance
Beauty in a glance
Beauty in the way
Your shoulder lay
In the morning

We'll make it today tomorrow
We'll make it today tomorrow
We'll make it right in your place
We'll make it right in my place
We'll make it right in your place

I love you so much baby
You love me too much maybe
I love you too much baby
You love me too much maybe
Track Name: Imagination
Imagination - Lyrics and tune by Stephen Harrison

Blue sky
Rivers running by
You, and me
So close in what we see

Is my head in the clouds
Are my feet off the ground
Life is good life is sweet
Here for a moment then it's complete

Walking up the muddy pathway
Through the hedges you show me
Your favourite tree

I see the hills I see the dales
Autumn leaves in the sun
This is a wonderful place
This is a wonderful time

Planning a picnic in the summer
By the river
In the meadow
In the sun

I hear the lark in the sky
I see the deer I hear the owl
Canadian geese flying in
We wonder where the eagle has been

You and me
So close in what we see

Is this Heaven around us
Is it Hell just inside us
Is my imagination leading me
To create the world or is it real


I'm not sure
I don't know
Who can tell
Track Name: Graffiti On A Wall
'Graffiti On A Wall' - Lyrics and tune by Stephen Harrison

Funny that love's just a four letter word
Written on a card or graffiti on a wall
Where it shines in the sun and the rain
For hundreds of Years

Don't you know me
I thought you knew
Thought you knew
Don't you know me
A cold explosion

Funny that love's just a four minute song
To make you feel things
Or make a songwriter rich
Am I right, am I wrong
Is my own songwriting any good

Don't you know a girl
Don't you know a girl
You thought that she would run away
She thought that you would look away

You'll buy her things
Tell her secret meanings
She will bring you out
She will build you appetite for love

Funny that love's just a four letter word
Written in a song or a poem by Baudelaire
Where it rhymes in the meaning and the feelings
From hope to despair
Track Name: Don't Cry
Don't Cry - Lyrics and tune by Stephen Harrison

Don't cry
By the windowsill
Don't cry

When I think of tears in your eyes
My heart breaks down inside
The most beautiful one in my world
Beautiful but not free

And all your love inside
Love is in your eye

With the books by your bed
On lonely sleepless nights
Or in the garden that we made
And in the songs that you play
Or on the walk home through the trees alone

Don't cry
Don't cry
Don't cry
Track Name: Sphinx City
Sphinx City. Tune and lyrics by Stephen Harrison

I'll choose my own time
I'll work until I die
With your love in my head
With your love in my bed
I'll hold you in the dark
Like a flame

Think I'll pack my bags
And come your way
This town's got not charms for me anymore
And in my own special way
I have changed what i see
I'm free

Your window is open
Your doorway is not closed
Lean out of your window
Bare your soul
Tonight

Think I'll pack my bags
And come your way
This town's got secrets
To give away
It's a sphinx with no secret
Like a beauty
With nothing to say
Track Name: And If
Lyrics and tune by Stephen Harrison. From the album 'Today Tomorrow'

I wish upon a star
I hope we find the way
Don’t want to walk away alone again

My heart is in your hand
I hope you’ll understand
When the darkest colours are mine

And if I was to walk alone
Would I find my way home
And if I was to live alone again
What are the chances of coming through

I wish my love was strong
I wish the doubts were gone
I wish the dark days away
And I know now what love is
And I know now what love is

I wish upon a star
I hope we’ll both go far
You are the love of my life

And if I was to run away
How could I live that way
And forget what your love is
And forget what your love is
Track Name: Looking Back
Looking Back
Lyrics and tune by Stephen Harrison. From the album 'Today Tomorrow'

Sunlight in the morning
Shadows by the doorway
She's gone
Baby's gone

She's writing songs
To make your brown eyes blue
Your brown eyes blue

Sunlight on the water
No one by the seashore
She's gone
Baby's gone

She's writing songs
Writing words
About what happened
When love went wrong

Looking back
With tears in her eyes

And no one knows
Where she goes
When love went wrong

Moonlight on the water
But no kisses in the evening
She's gone
Her beauty is gone

She's writing words
Thinking things
She will never
Forgive him

She's writing songs
To make you brown eyes blue
Your brown eyes blue
Your brown eyes blue
Track Name: Shoegaze People
'Shoegaze People' - Lyrics and tune by Stephen Harrison - From the album 'Today Tomorrow'

When I was lying in my bed
Shoegaze people in my head
I was lost in the sun
I was blacker than blue
Didn't know what to do
Didn't know what to say
I was lonely today
Lonely today

In this old town I held your hand
In cobbled streets I let you down
Right across the Milky Way
Who am I anyway

Didn't know what to feel
Didn't know what was real
I was crazy today
Crazy today

Let's be joyful let's have fun
The answer will surely come
Right across the USA
Who are we anyway

You don't know if you don't try
You don't try if you don't know
All you see is your self
There's no one else
Track Name: River Of Time
RIVER OF TIME

Words and tune by Stephen Harrison

For all we know
This could be the last year
Of our lives
Or the world that we know

A beautiful life
Created today
A gifted mind
Just slipped way

Don’t want to waste time
Running about
When existence is sublime

Time to reply
To questions why
Do you want to live forever
Don’t you want to say goodbye

River of time
Rushing by
To the other side

Winds of change
Are blowing through this land
What we knew hangs in doubt
Things seemed brighter
In the olden days
When we were young and lighthearted
Young - and brave hearted
Way back then across the riverside

Time to reply
With questions why
Do you want to live forever
Don’t you want to say goodbye

Here’s my reply
The truth not the lie
Do you want to live forever
Don’t you want to say goodbye

River of time
Rushing by
To the other side
Got to go soon
River of time
Got to go soon
Don’t let go
Track Name: Nobody There
What do you know
About me
What do you see
With me
Do you know when I'm cold
Do you know when I'm alone

What would I be
Without you
What would it mean
Without your love
And tears would never dry
When I found there's no one there
And in the dark - I'd feel afraid
And in the light - I'd feel ashamed

What would I hear
Without your voice
What would I feel
Without your touch
And tomorrow
Sorrow
I'd never
Again

Nobody home
In the world
There'd be nobody here
In the crowd
In the crowd
