Here we all are Here we all were today Still we're not quite there yet, yet They said you'd go far Then they turned you away today Still we're not quite there yet Not quite there yet But we're almost there yeah When the summer came so did the rain But when the water came sun shone again You see it all comes round from one day to the next And when the summer came So did the rain, so did the rain, so did the rain, yeah Life has a way Of taking away your worth It's the sum of a zero gain 'Cause all this is war Of normal and strange today Still we're not quite there yet Not quite where yet But we're almost there yeah When the summer came so did the rain But when the water came sun shone again You see it all comes round from one day to the next And when the summer came Sun shone again, sun shone again, sun shone again yeah So let it out, let it in There ain't no doubt about it we need somewhere to begin So I sing crying out, crying in We need something to believe in We need something we can, something we can't win Yeah, yeah

Stop wasting time When nothing seems to get easier Stop wasting time When nothing seems to get clearer Those mysteries are just meant to be Way after way, maybe in the next world Way after way, maybe in the next world Maybe in the next world Stop wasting time When nothing's on the horizon Stop wasting time When plans don't seem to include you No victory is without defeat Way after way, maybe in the next world Way after way, maybe in the next world Maybe in the next world Maybe in the next world Maybe in the next world Maybe in the next world ..... Way after way

How many times have you tried to belong But all you keep doing goes wrong Don't be afraid just keep moving on Let everything, everything come See the strange, strange, strange, strange Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange Look for a change in rhythm and rhyme Where everything has its own time In harmonies way utopia cries That something will always defy See the strange, strange, strange, strange Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange See the strange, strange, strange, strange Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange Open your eyes See the colours dance in the light Orange, red, green and blue Combine into something new See the strange, strange, strange, strange Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange

Ah, Indian Rain Ah, Indian Rain The water came Let it rain, rain, rain on you Into the vein of the tributaries Ain't it a shame that it won't wait long for you Along it's way through the river to the sea Ah, Indian Rain Ah, Indian Rain The water came Let it rain, rain, rain on you Into the vein of the tributaries Ain't it a shame that it won't wait long for you Along it's way through the river to the sea

Are you saying that life is like Life is like a light That you're hoping to see Unknown colours Surrounding now A Kaleidoscope Has this all been a dream Live your life See the sunshine in the sky In the summer breeze Summer breeze Leave it all behind 'Cause today you're gonna find That it all comes round in the end Hear the sound carving out many different way In the call of the waves Everything becomes and then Then it is erased Has it all been the same Live your life See the sunshine in the sky In the summer breeze Summer breeze Leave it all behind 'Cause today you're gonna find That it all comes round in the end Live your life See the sunshine in the sky In the summer breeze Summer breeze Leave it all behind 'Cause today you're gonna find That it all comes round in the end

Here in the fifth dimension High under northern sky Time seems so different here Then another year goes by Still we're nowhere now And I'm gonna sing out loud That life is so incomplete When forever leaving When forever leaving When forever leaving Here in the fifth dimension High under northern sky Time seems so different here Then another year goes by Still we're nowhere now And I'm gonna sing out loud That life is so incomplete When forever leaving When forever leaving When forever leaving Here in the fifth dimension High under northern sky Time seems so different here Then another year goes by Still we're nowhere now And I'm gonna sing out loud That life is so incomplete When forever leaving When forever leaving When forever leaving

Review:-

The ability to combine these multiple sumptuous guitar based genre..s is impressive. Sun Drive is a signature road-trip, a track order which runs through historical icons - A cool breeze to freshen your dusty, heat ridden brow from the most vicious of balmy afternoons. Spiritual strumming reminiscent of George Harrison and structured arrangements within the frame of an early Peter Gabriel epic, you..re really going to appreciate the lack of emotional gimmickry and limitless escapism this record throws out at you - A carefully worked out audio time line, notably uncomplicated and multi-dimensional in every sense, set your controls to the heart of the sun. -- Mojophenia
