Track Name: Give Me All Your Love
Give Me All Your Love
(Morris)
Give me all you’ve got to give
You know that I’ll take all there is
I’ve never known myself a better time
So give me all your love and I’ll give you all of mine
Give me everything you’ve got
You know that I will take the lot
With you I don’t know where to draw the line
So give me all your love and I’ll give you all of mine
The simple things are easy
If you don’t make them hard
Some people complicate me
And leave me old and tired
I don’t need to have too much
I’m through with wanting all that stuff
You are all I ever hoped to find
So give me all your love and I’ll give you all of mine
The simple things are easy
If you don’t make them hard
Some people complicate me
And leave me old and tired
But with you I feel alive
You make me want to keep on trying
With you I’ll never stop or fall behind
So give me all your love and I’ll give you all of mine

Track Name: Wilderness Wood
Wilderness Wood
(Morris)
When I’m away and far from my home
There’s always one place I long to return
There’s nowhere I’d rather be I must confess
Than under these trees in this old wilderness
Wilderness wood I love to be
In wilderness wood it’s the best place for me
There’s nowhere I’d rather be I must confess
Than under these trees in this old wilderness
Every seasons a pleasure to see
The bare branch of winter to green canopy
There’s nowhere I’d rather be I must confess
Than under these trees in this old wilderness
Wilderness wood I love to be
In wilderness wood it’s the best place for me
There’s nowhere I’d rather be I must confess
Than under these trees in this old wilderness
My heart’s forever in Wilderness wood
I’ll always remember this place where we stood
There’s nowhere I’d rather be I must confess
Than under these trees in this old wilderness
Wilderness wood I love to be
In wilderness wood it’s the best place for me
There’s nowhere I’d rather be I must confess
Than under these trees in this old wilderness

Track Name: Sunshine
Sunshine
(Morris)
Take a step in the right direction
Listen well and you’ll hear that call
It may be nice when the sun is shining
Settle back and enjoy it all
I’m singing of sunshine
Pushing your clouds away
Just wait for the sunshine
Tomorrow will be a better day
Take a step in the right direction
Keep your head and avoid the fall
It may be nice when the sun is shining
Stepping up when you’re feeling small
I’m singing of sunshine
Pushing your clouds away
Just wait for the sunshine
Tomorrow will be a better day
When the day is black
You think there’s no way back
But you’re wrong, just hang on
When nothing seems to fit, you think that this is it
But stay strong and carry on
Take a step in the right direction
Every day is an open door
It may be nice when the sun is shining
There will always be something more
I’m singing of sunshine
Pushing your clouds away
Just wait for the sunshine
Tomorrow will be a better day

Track Name: Campervan Song
Campervan Song
(Morris)
Let’s have another drink, one for the road
We’ve still got so many miles to go
So pack up the van and let’s head out you know
It’s just you and me on the road
We don’t need anything it’s all here on board
Packed from the tailgate, ceiling to floor
We don’t need to rush we go steady and sure
It’s just you and me on the road
Heading home, heading home
It’s just you and me on the road heading home
Pack up the awning and light up the stove
It’s four in the morning too early to go
So brew up the coffee and burn all the toast
It’s just you and me on the road
And let’s have another hour laying in bed
Wasting the time away swinging the lead
We should get on but let’s stay here instead
It’s just you and me on the road
Heading home, heading home
It’s just you and me on the road heading home
Shut all the curtains and close out the night
We won’t be leaving until it gets light
Close your eyes darling and lay down your head
Under these sheets in this rock ’n’ roll bed
So pull on your overcoat against the cold
The windows are drafty the gaskets are old
The heater don’t work it just sits there and blows
It’s just you and me on the road
And here’s to the camper that never breaks down
And here’s to the journey it takes us upon
And wave to the others as we go along
It’s just you and me on the road
Heading home, heading home
It’s just you and me on the road heading home

Lyrics © copyright 2016 James Morris
Track Name: On The Outside
On The Outside
(Morris/Mawer)
Nice of you to tell me to my face
That you were leaving me with that last embrace
I could have told you long before you knew
Just exactly what you thought you’d do
I hope you don’t grow cold on the outside
I hope you don’t grow old on the outside
I hope you’re happy with the plans you made
Cos you won’t be coming back this way again
Nice of you to tell me to my face
I guess I should have known I was easy to replace
I should’ve seen the distance in your eyes
But I was too wrapped up
To see through your disguise
I hope you don’t grow cold on the outside
I hope you don’t grow old on the outside
I hope you’re happy with the plans you made
Cos you won’t be coming back this way again
I guess it’s time to realise
All we had was based on lies
Now the truth is stretching me too thin
Nice of you to tell me to my face
That you were leaving me with that last embrace
I could have told you long before you knew
Just exactly what you thought you’d do
I hope you don’t grow cold on the outside
I hope you don’t grow old on the outside
I hope you’re happy with the plans you made
Cos you won’t be coming back this way again

Track Name: Home From Home
Home From Home
(Morris)
It don’t matter what you think you know
Things can change and when you gotta go
We’re going home from home
We’re going home from home
And after everything has come and gone
We’re still here and the road goes on
We’re going home we’re going home from home
Leave the lessons of the past behind
There are days that we have yet to find
We’re going home from home
We’re going home from home
And after everything has come and gone
We’re still here and the road goes on
We’re going home we’re going home from home
You may worry that you’ll never find a place
To rest your head or call your own
You’ll be sorry if you let the fears you face
Steer you wrong
So pack the van and get behind the wheel
Get in gear and hear those tyres squeal
We’re going home from home
We’re going home from home
And after everything has come and gone
We’re still here and the road goes on
We’re going home we’re going home from home
You may worry that you’ll never find a place
To rest your head or call your own
You’ll be sorry if you let the fears you face
Steer you wrong
It don’t matter what you think you know
Things can change and when you gotta go
We’re going home from home
We’re going home from home
And after everything has come and gone
We’re still here and the road goes on
We’re going home we’re going home from home

Track Name: It's Over
It’s Over
(Morris)
Whether we’re wrong or whether we’re right
We’re never gonna find out tonight
So gather your thoughts and turn out the light
It’s over
You say you will and I say I might
But we’re never gonna find out tonight
Which one of us is gonna be right it’s over
End of the road another day has come and gone
I wanna know can you believe in what you’ve done
Where do we go now the night is drawing on
And for us the time has come, it’s over
So whether we run or whether we fight
We’re never gonna find out tonight
If we will stay or if we’ll take flight, it’s over
End of the road another day has come and gone
I wanna know can you believe in what you’ve done
Where do we go now the night is drawing on
And for us the time has come, it’s over
So whether we’re wrong or whether we’re right
We’re never gonna find out tonight
So gather your thoughts and turn out the light
It’s over

Lyrics © copyright 2016 James Morris
Track Name: Nothing To Fear
Nothing To Fear
(Morris)
Love may be a hard thing to hold on to
But if you hold on to me then I will try to prove
It’s how you’re feeling now
That shows you it’s alright
There’s nothing to fear for us tonight
At this moment now as we lie by this burning fire
It’s more than its warmth and light
I think we both desire
Flames that burn brightly
Can still cool into the night
But there’s nothing to fear for us tonight
No there’s nothing to fear for us tonight
There’s nothing to fear for us tonight
So love may be a hard thing to hold on to
But put your trust in me and I will show to you
Your shadow seems darker
When the moon is shining bright
So there’s nothing to fear for us tonight

Lyrics © copyright 2016 James Morris
Track Name: This Is The Life That You Chose
This Is The Life That You Chose
(Morris)
You take the car the house and the money
Leave me my guitar my books and my clothes
Pack me a bag now I’m leaving you honey
Cos this is the life that you chose
And you got a nerve to think that it’s funny
But I’ll take my chances, see how it goes
Back to the wall so I’m leaving you honey
Cos this is the life that you chose
Tried to make you happy it just brought you down
You never had the sense
To keep your feet on the ground
Tried to please you baby but we couldn’t get on
So this is your choice I hope you like it alone
Well you take the car the house and the money
Leave me my guitar my books and my clothes
Pack me a bag now I’m leaving you honey
Cos this is the life that you chose
Tried to make it happen but you wouldn’t give in
You never had a reason you just had to win
You’ve made it easy baby
With the things that you’ve done
If this is your choice then I’m glad that I’ve gone
You take the car the house and the money
Leave me my guitar my books and my clothes
Pack me a bag now I’m leaving you honey
Cos this is the life that you chose

Track Name: Sleep In The Morning
Sleep In The Morning
(Morris)
The sweat on the palm of my hands
Made it harder to play as the night wore me down
But we played till the last note was dawn
And then crawled off to sleep in the morning
Such a gentle refrain in the night
Catching the ear of those still left behind
But we played till the last note was dawn
And then crawled off to sleep in the morning
Crawling out in the light of the morning
Close my eyes
Far away from the beat of the warning, city’s cry
The light sliding out of the eye
The stars in the darkness blazed down from the sky
And we played till the last note was dawn
And then crawled off to sleep in the morning

Lyrics © copyright 2016 James Morris
Track Name: It's You That I Love
It’s You That I Love
(Morris)
I’ve never felt so wanted
I’ve never felt so loved and so desired
I’ve never felt so completely safe in anyone’s arms
I’ve never felt so needed
I’ve never felt so awake and so alive
I’ve never felt so completely sure of anyone’s heart
Cos sometimes love just ain’t enough
I made mistakes and lost so much
But now I know I can never give up
It’s you, it’s you that I love
Cos sometimes love just ain’t enough
I made mistakes and lost so much
But now I know I can never give up
It’s you, it’s you that I love

Lyrics © copyright 2016 James Morris
Track Name: A Love We Share
A Love We Share
(Morris)
This is a love we share and it will always be
And nothing can compare to what we’ve got
We never need to stop, this is a love we share
And at that certain time, we’d meet and fall in love
And though a time may come and it may go
Between us we both know, this is a love we share
This is a love we share, for all eternity
We know it’s always there
Something’s are meant to be
This is a love we share and it will always be
And nothing can compare to what we’ve got
We never need to stop, this is a love we share
This is a love we share, for all eternity
We know it’s always there
Something’s are meant to be
There was a time and place, where fate or destiny
Said we were meant to always be as one
Together we’ll go on, this is a love we share
Where we were meant to always be as one
Together we’ll go on, this is a love we share

Lyrics © copyright 2016 James Morris
Track Name: Don't Fear The Night
Don’t Fear The Night
(Morris/King)
You don’t need to fear the night
And you don’t need to pray for light
Cos in this darkness
I can see through your eyes now
And you don’t need to hide within
And you don’t need to always win
Cos in this darkness
I can see through your eyes now
There’ll be a time when you have to stand alone
There’ll be a time when you will not be so strong
There’ll be a time when you’ll realise that
You don’t need to fear the night
And you don’t need to pray for light
Cos in this darkness
I can see through your eyes now
