Track Name: Dedicate
Music and Lyrics by Alan Lauris

You dedicate your life to creation
You dedicate your life to the best
You dedicate your life to your nation
You dedicate your life to the quest

A life’s a collection of moments
And every moment ‘s all right
Surely you don’t want to miss one
So you dedicate, you dedicate your life
You dedicate your life, You dedicate you life
Every moment again and again you dedicate your life

It’s all about paying attention
It’s all about looking around
When you dedicate your life to the sunrise
Then you dedicate your life to a sound
You dedicate your life, You dedicate you life
Every moment again and again you dedicate your life

Every moment again and again and again and again and again and again…You dedicate your life!
Every moment again and again and again and again and again and again…You dedicate your life!

You dedicate your life to your business
You dedicate your life to your car
You dedicate your life to the dishes
You dedicate your life to the stars

It’s all a about being connected
When you dedicate your life to the light
You dedicate your life to your smartphone
Then you dedicate your life to your wife
You dedicate your life, You dedicate your life

Every moment again and again you dedicate your life
Every moment again and again you dedicate your life
Every moment again and again you dedicate your life

You dedicate your life to the weather, the lonely, a sportscar, politics, the good cause, a boys band, the future, your music, the helpless, the laundry, your children, the answer, your passion, a journey, a phonecall, your breakfast, a party, a blackbird, a program
Track Name: Diamonds and shadows
You appeared from nowhere
Without any warning
A real life Jack-in-the-box
Bustling your way through
Scattering the crowd
All blazing hair and Bobby-socks

Diamonds and shadows
Behind your eyes
Blazing hair and Bobby-socks
A frown on your face
That's far too old
The smile on your lips gently mocks

Still you had a sense of wonder
An insatiable curiousity
That led you towards
Every success, every blunder
And still you couldn't see

Diamonds and shadows behind your eyes
Diamonds and shadows, surprise, surprise
Diamonds and shadows behind your eyes
Diamonds and shadows

Like a human pinball
A hirsute dynamo
Ordered from pillar to post
By the child within
Hardly having time to catch your breath
But little did you know

Blazing hair and Bobby-socks
Won't deter life's pains and blows
There'll come a time maybe soon
When the diamonds no longer
Outnumber the shadows

Diamonds and shadows behind your eyes
Diamonds and shadows, surprise, surprise
Diamonds and shadows behind your eyes
Diamonds and shadows
Track Name: Lonely night
It's a lonely night
you're away
It's getting light outside
I lie awake

I was tired
things had to change
I had to act
But now it feels pretty strange

I'll get no sleep
but that's ok
I'm coming back from
being led astry

It's a lonely night
in a king-sized bed
and there will be
more lonely nights ahead
Track Name: Dedicate (CP30 swing mix)
