Break Back My Heart (words and music by Steve Towson) (Chorus) Break back my heart Put it back in place Leave me here For somebody new Break back my heart Put it back in place I can't handle this love anymore No amount of gauze can fix me You've broken me, broken me into Many pieces I cant find the start of me Each time we're together I become unglued so (Chorus) Some say all in love and war is far But how can this possibly be true For you've broken me beyond All forms of recognition Now all I wanna be is left alone so (Chorus) But through All of these years and through All of these times We know the swallow can't survive the fall But it will keep on trying And it does its best Knowing the answers always nevermore Like Scott of the Antarctic So close and yet so far away And Hinkler and all of those before and after him Knowing the birth of passion Always ends in decay so (Chorus) But through All of these years and through All of these times We know the swallow can't survive the fall But it will keep on trying And it does its best Knowing the answer's always nevermore Knowing the answer's always nevermore Knowing the answer's always nevermore

A Beacon In The Mist (lyrics and music by Steve Towson) When life is blue And nothing you can do Can pry the jaws of despair When the endless night Consumes all in sight And no one seems to care (Chorus) I'll be here Whenever you need I'll be here A beacon in the mist If the spark is gone And you are on your own And it feels too hard to hold on Bear in mind if you seek you shall find The answers to guide your way home (Chorus) As the dawn arrives Through your wintered nights And the pain is forced to move on Through the darkest of times A glimmer of light Shall lighten the darkest of souls (Chorus)

On Demand (lyrics and music by Steve Towson) Dogs barking til the break of dawn Cars mounted on blocks out the front The snide and snicker of 4 wheel drives As they glide through their Sundays In our countryside (Chorus) And Im telling you It ain't pretty And It ain't quaint It's all part of a greater state Well some listen to understand While others just consume On demand The taste of dirt in a drone of flies A merry scream hangs in the night A faded poster on a bedroom wall Reminding of times when you gave you all (Chorus) The pound screams at 5am It's off to work in a foreign land Driving home into a burning sun All of the while just thinking how your life's been All of the while just thinking how you life's been All of the while just thinking how you've been done (chorus)

Girl From Western Sydney (lyrics and music by Steve Towson) There's a girl from Western Sydney I haven't seen for a while How I wish I could see her again She was standing on the platform As my train pulled away She cried and the wind blew through her hair And she said (Chorus) To the top To the top I will strive and climb I will be victorious We were together for about a year And we never had an argument She had her dreams I shared a few of them But none enough to make me go with her To hear her say (Chorus) She went away To some university Had a string of broken love affairs She fell in and out of love One too many times Now I just want to see her again To say to her To the top To the top You will strive and climb I know you'll be victorious There's a girl from Western Sydney I haven't seen for a while How I just want to see her again
