Track Name: The Art Of Succinct Compliments [Chiptune Remix]
I know I struggle to find
The way to speak my mind
In twenty five words or less
I never have that success

'Cause sometimes I want to say
All the things that I'm thinking about you baby
It's never seemed to work before
I guess I'll try it just once more

So here I go

You're cute, you're sweet, you're soft, you're smart
You fill the gaps inside my heart
You're nice to hold and hard to leave
You're everything that's good to me

I love your hair, your pretty eyes
The way you leave me mesmerised
I guess there's just one thing that's true
Above the rest - that I love you

I'm sorry if I make no sense
The art of succinct compliments
Has never been a skill of mine
But I'll just do it one more time

So here I go

You're cute, you're sweet, you're soft, you're smart
You fill the gaps inside my heart
You're nice to hold and hard to leave
You're everything that's good to me

I love your hair, your pretty eyes
The way you leave me mesmerised
I guess there's just one thing that's true
Above the rest - that I love you

'Cause all I really have to do
Is tell you how much I love you
Track Name: By The Hand (feat. Malachi Flood)
Crooked and weak
Like roots cut from a tree
My twisted limp physique
Needs You here with me

My fingers will lose grip
My legs beneath will trip
Lord, lead me by the hand
'Cause I can barely stand

This walk at first is awkward
I stumble and I'm crying in pain
But You gently draw me forward
And I know this isn't in vain

My fingers will lose grip
My legs beneath will trip
Lord, lead me by the hand
'Cause I can barely stand

It's OK to slip and fall
And lose your sight
'Cause Jesus Christ through saving grace
Will shape our backs upright

Guide me, God
Help me stand
In your love
By the hand
Use me, Lord
In your plans
Lead me now
By the hand
Track Name: Before And After [Demo]
I can win this race
Just as kids we hear that slow and steady is the pace
I took your hand
And we began to plan our stand
And I still say
To this day
That I know love is on its way
As I looked into your pretty eyes
For the very first time
My feelings grow

Deeper, deeper
Because I need to keep her, keep her
Through the pain because I love her, love her
Can you see that I need her, need her
Deeper, deeper
Because I need to keep her, keep her
Through the pain because I love her, love her
Can you see that I need her, need her
Need her forever, yeah

And if I walked away
Would you promise me that you would want to stay
Do you agree that love should be for all eternity
And everything I do
Everywhere I go
Everyone I meet, somewhere I'll show
That my feelings grow
Yeah, my feelings grow
My feelings grow

Deeper, deeper
Because I need to keep her, keep her
Through the pain because I love her, love her
Can you see that I need her, need her
Deeper, deeper
Because I need to keep her, keep her
Through the pain because I love her, love her
Can you see that I need her, need her
Need her forever, yeah
Track Name: There's Room On My Trolley For Two [Demo]
All alone in a carpark at night
Sitting still on a trolley by streetlight
And lonely again
I watch the cars going by

Suddenly, she appears next to me
Though I'm startled, I smile politely
And talking to pretty girls is hard
But I'll try

So I say
Hey, you're real pretty
And it'd be a pity
To not sit here with you
'Cause there's room on my trolley for two

When she moves, it's only with grace
When she smiles, well, I'm stunned by her face
And when she sits at my side
I know I've been blessed

And though a trolley's not worthy of you
Rest assured, it's the best I can do
Just to share what I have with you now
I'm doing my best
Track Name: Valentine's Day [Demo]
Roses are red
And violets are purple
But that doesn't rhyme
So instead we say blue
I used to be alone
On Valentine's Day
Thank the Lord
For the day I met you
Track Name: Weather [2008 Version]
Don’t want to look out the window today
‘Cause I know what I’m going to see
The rain is falling, the wind is calling
And I feel it blowing inside me

I shut the window, I close the door
But here it’s still so very cold
I’ve tried so hard to forget, not to hold on to regret
But why’s regret so nice to hold

Things started changing, outside it started raining
And I’m sorry I did wrong
(Rain falls, the past calls, the things I did wrong)
I know that I hurt you, didn’t mean to make it worse for you
But lift your eyes and move on
(Gotta let go ‘cause I know it’s time to move on)

So when it rains, look through the clouds and see
The sun still shining, despite the weather
The same sun that shone on you and me
On all those days we spent together
So don’t think we’re a bad memory
Though today it’s colder than ever
And just remember who we used to be
The sun will shine on us forever

I pick up the photo album, turn the pages
And I try to find where it went wrong
Summer sky and bubble tea, just loving your company
Serenades with all our favourite songs

But then things start changing, life started rearranging
Where did the happy ending go?
Fights only left us bruised, had we just been confused?
For the first time, I didn’t know

When it rains look through
Was it me or you?
Though you’re far you’ll see
You’re still close to me
Track Name: Happy Birthday, Jacquie
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Jacquie
Happy birthday to you

With your teenage years gone
Hope it's fun to move on
Happy birthday, dear Jacquie
Happy birthday to you

For the times that you always knew just what to say
Thanks for being my friend and have a happy birthday

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Jacquie
Happy birthday to you
Track Name: Alex's Birthday Song
Sometimes life is funny how
It'll throw people your way
And some are just to knock you down
some to pick you up again

And sometimes I'll write music
To help me speak my mind
And too many people are the same
But you're one of a kind

You stuck by me as years went by
And others let me go
Oh Alex, you're a great friend
And I had to let you know

So I wrote this for your birthday
And I've quickly gotta say
I hope that you don't mind it being
Just a few months late
Track Name: Recall [Demo]
I think it's time for us to talk
'Cause there's something on my mind
I know you've gotta change your life
And you're running out of time

And all I want is just to set you free
But I can't be the one to make this right
So I'll keep praying you start hearing me
Every night

You just don't seem to understand
How you're living under grace
And though you laugh at me today
It's something you've gotta face

I know they say I've lost my mind
'Cause I've heard it said before
But now it's time to make a choice
What are you living for?
Track Name: The Ballad Of Maxwell's Equations
Maxwell's first equation says divergence of D
Is equal to the enclosed charge density
Or the surface flux can be obtained
If we integrate rho over V

Law two says circulation of E dot dl
Is the minus time derivative of the integral
Of the magnetic field through the surface
That's bounded by C

The third law is simpler than anyone thought
If you integrate B.dS you get nought
The divergence of B is just zero
So that's all we say

And finally, c^2 times circulation of B
Is d/dt of the surface integral of E
Plus one on e-nought times the surface integral of J
Track Name: Uzain
They call him Uzain
Insane, he don't feel no pain
There ain't no-one who trains the way he trains
You call it repetition, he makes it superstition
You wanna beat him, you're only wishin
You want relays, okay
He'll be the captain any day
It don't matter what they got to say, he'll beat 'em anyway
North side, south side, inside, outside
Takin' on Zain, it's only suicide

You wanna stay alive? You say alive?
Better keep outta the way of the big seven five
'Cause when we arrive there ain't nowhere to hide
You better go take a ride
'Cause this all about pride, y'all
Can you hear the reverberation around the nation
You can't? Go take your medication
And let us educate ya on who we are and what we do
We're seventy five percent and we're coming for you

I don't know what you're after. Some cheap thrill?
'Cause when my boy Uzain comes for the kill
He'll run until you look like you're standing still
So run, boy, run
Yeah, I betcha you will
Sometimes it don't seem like he's real
Legs like steel and an iron will
He'll overtake you, he'll make you and break you
Just sleep with one eye open 'cause he's going to shake you

You ever seen a faster anchor leg?
You're just a child, boy, so go back to bed
Let Zain show you how to run, let him show you how it's done
From the gun to the line
Step aside, 'cause he's motorised
You might ask me, then, who am I?
What's the big deal anyway? And why
Why would anyone want to hang with Zain?
Well I'm his vice-captain, boy, and that's the way it's going to stay
