Track Name: Finsbury Park
FINSBURY PARK
(Christina Martin)

Sleeping with a stranger
Just a few doors down
The grind that brought us closer
Ended up changing my mind
One month of carrying on like that
After banjo lessons we’d hook up

Before our first date
In Finsbury Park
Those kinds of feelings don’t come easy
I dreamed of going steady baby

Our First date
In Finsbury Park
Sweet tooth and blue-eyed prince
Beautiful Boy

Something of convenience
Turned to birds in Spain
Any time you wanted me
You would just say my name
Spring turned to summer
Lust turned to love
I turned to you

Then came first date
In Finsbury Park
I started missing you in daydreams
I wanted you to be my baby

Our First date
In Finsbury Park
Sweet tooth and blue-eyed prince
Beautiful boy

I’d meet you at the Tesco Express
In the beginning it was lust over love
By the summertime you had to tell him
So we could go out

On our first date
In Finsbury Park
I didn’t want to hide this new love
We started going steady after

Our First date
In Finsbury Park
Sweet tooth and blue-eyed prince
Beautiful boy

Our first date
Finsbury Park
Track Name: The Last Time I Saw You
The Last Time I Saw You
(Christina Martin)

The last time I saw you
I was stolen from my home
I was loaded up and taken
To the worst place in the world
Stepped on that steam engine
Platform in the rain
No waving, no tears, only shock and overwhelming fear

(The Last time I saw you, The Last time I Saw You)

The last time I saw you I took the deepest breath of you
I photographed in my mind
What you looked like on a clear sunny day

(The Last time I saw you, The Last time I Saw You)

The last time I saw you
Your hands were tied behind your back
Watched them slip on through your cracks
You couldn’t do a God dammed thing
Green eyes against blue skies
Pretty steeples holding up the night
As I rode your country side I counted trees in line

(The Last time I saw you, The Last time I Saw You)

The last time I saw you I took the deepest breath of you
I photographed in my mind
What you looked like on a clear sunny day

(The Last time I saw you, The Last time I Saw You)

The last time I saw you
I was stolen from my home
I was loaded up and taken
To the worst place in the world
Stepped on that steam engine
Platform in the rain
No waving, no tears, only shock and overwhelming fear

(The Last time I saw you, The Last time I Saw You)

The last time I saw you I took the deepest breath of you
I photographed in my mind
What you looked like on a clear sunny day
Track Name: It'll Be Alright - Acoustic
IT’LL BE ALRIGHT
(Christina Martin)

I don’t even smoke, but I smoke with you
I don’t even drink, when we drink it feels good
Everything was done by the book for love
Throw it all away in a floating moment

Oh this hold you've got on me
I have let myself recede
I'm no longer here in charge
You convinced me it’ll be alright

I don’t even lie but I lied for you
Tried to close my eyes and just ride this through
Everything was done by the book for love
Cast my life away for your thrilling touch

Oh this hold you've got on me
I have let myself recede
I'm no longer here in charge
You convinced me it’ll be alright

Don't turn me down tonight
We don't have many other nights
Would love to walk fall asleep and ignore
I think you know I'll be back for more
Don't turn me down tonight
We don't have many other nights
Would love to walk fall asleep and ignore
I think you know I'll be back for more
I think you know I think you know
I think you know I think you know

Oh this hold you've got on me
I have let myself recede
I'm no longer here in charge
You convinced me
It’ll be alright

Oh this hold you've got on me
I have let myself recede
I'm no longer here in charge
You convinced me
It’ll be alright
Track Name: Where The Dark Meets The Light - Acoustic
WHERE THE DARK MEETS THE LIGHT
(Christina Martin & Matt Epp)

When you’re scared of the darkness
Let it hold you
Wrap it’s arms around
Show you the light

Take a walk in a cold dark field
Bring your sword and shield
Make a fire in the darkest part
Let it burn

CHORUS
Tonight, where the dark meets the light
Tonight, where we walk, lightning strikes
Tonight, there’s a full moon throwing light
On our lives, make love we can end this war
Tonight, where the dark meets the light

As we roll through this strange strange world
Feeling like lost boys and girls
Runaways, howling at the night
Taking Turns

CHORUS

When you can’t see the night for the darkness
And you are standing, still as time
Turn towards the light in the distance and ride

CHORUS x 2
