Track Name: Seven hills
You were all I knew, for all that time
Well I was yours, and you were mine
I lived to learn and learned to live
For all you gave I tried to give

The day we came to say goodbye
When I moved away, something died
Those many years we spent apart
You were always there inside my heart

The yellow lights on navy sky
I’m coming home, I’ll try not to cry

Every time I walk away I keep coming back for more
Something inside pulls me back, right through the open door
I climb up one of seven hills, turn back round and then
I look back on this city and fall in love with her again

I’ve seen the lights, of London town
Full of life, but can get you down
Though the streets down south, aren’t paved with gold
Those friends for life, have me in their hold

The yellow lights on navy sky
I’m coming home, I’ll try not to cry

I should settle down, 'cos I’m getting old
There’s a warmth up here, despite the cold
I can feel the pull, when I step off the train
This city may change, I’ll still feel the same

The yellow lights on navy sky
I’m coming home, I’ll try not to cry

Every time I walk away I keep coming back for more
Something inside pulls me back, right through the open door
I climb up one of seven hills, turn back round and then
I look back on this city and fall in love with her again

I chose to leave but you swallowed your pride
and welcomed me back with arms open wide
In these city walls is the place I will be
There's a lump in my throat, whenever I see...

The yellow lights on navy sky
I’m coming home, I’ll try not to cry

Every time I walk away I keep coming back for more
Something inside pulls me back, right through the open door
I climb up one of seven hills, turn back round and then
I look back on this city and fall in love with her again
Track Name: The greatest song of all
After thirty years and five, music’s the soundtrack of my life
From the lows that this life throws me, to when I’m on a high
Ten thousand words, ten thousand songs of human rights and human wrongs
In every situation, I know which one belongs

I don’t dare to leave my home without my new smartphone
I take my whole record collection; all the tunes that I own
There’s too much music in my pocket, maybe I should just stop it
and let mother nature serenade me with her natural song

It’s time to stop and take a step outside
Press stop and open your ears wide
'Cos they’re singing from the trees
you can hear it on the breeze
so rest your head, close your eyes and listen to the greatest song of all

I’ll take a walk to the park or ride my bike in the peaks
or simply open up my window at some point in the next week
Remove my headphones from my ears, and brush aside my fears
The music that awaits is the greatest I could hear

It’s time to stop and take a step outside
Press stop and open your ears wide
'Cos they’re singing from the trees
you can hear it on the breeze
so rest your head, close your eyes and listen to the greatest song of all

And please don’t call me a twitcher
Though Chris Packham says my life will be much richer
And I’m not the outdoor type
But the Lemonheads say that it’s alright
Please don’t call it ornithology
It’s just taking time to listen here with me
So take the time and listen here for free
Come on rest your head, close your eyes and listen to the greatest song of all
Track Name: You are my home
You are my home, the location I belong
It’s where I’m coming back to, it’s where I’m coming from
I don’t need a palace or a stately home
As long as we’re together, I know I’m not alone

I know I’m not alone, you fill the gap inside
The times we are apart, a small part of me dies
And if I ever need, a place where I can go
I know your arms are open, because you are my home

You are my home, the place I want to be
I don’t need bricks and mortar, don’t need a lock and key
This is where I’ll stay, in the space here that I know
I know that I am welcome, and know you are my home

You are is my habitat
Look closely, see my tracks
In a corner of your heart
That’s where I’ve left my mark

You are my home, the rock on which I stand
And if I ever stumble, you’re there to hold my hand
Why would I want to leave? There’s no reason I should go
So here I’ll lay my hat, in this place that I call home
