Track Name: Seeking Beauty
SEEKING BEAUTY

Sometimes the grass looks greener on the other side
Green with envy I may find
Red with anger or blue like a summer sky
Sometimes I go colour blind

For all the past remembered
And all that we defend
For all those seeking beauty
Will always find it in the end

All the broken pieces
A world that we can mend
For all those seeking beauty
Will always find it in the end

Well if fortune favours the brave
Then the meek inherit none
Only the fruits of our labours we can save
And there isn't a chosen one

The world is full of trouble
It's waiting round the bend
For all those seeking beauty
Will always find it in the end

Sincere not sentimental
Real and not pretend
For all those seeking beauty
Will always find it in the end

Rpt Chs 1, 3 & 2
Track Name: Downtown Man
DOWNTOWN MAN

Thank you baby, for bringing me out to the sticks
I've got myself some overalls and a pile of bricks
Gonna find the local lads and show 'em a few of my tricks
Like sitting here and watching the sun go down

Well I'm just a downtown man
Singing a country song
No it's not the way that I planned it
I guess - I've ended up where I don't belong
But while I still can
I'll be singing this song for you - ooh - hoo

If they don't like me, they can tell me to sling my hook
I'm gonna make it here, by hook or by crook
Gonna look in every corner, every cranny and nook
Find a little place and watch the world go round

Well I'm just a downtown man etc.
