Hassles Coz' Julie is a wonderful exponent of her chosen genre. Her unabashed delivery, the subtleties of its worth, the polish, wholesomeness all caught me unprepared.

Track Name: Edge of your World
Meeting you somehow
Wondering where you've been
Behind those tired eyes
The ghosts of everyone you've been
That paved the road to who you are
To who you used to be

Smiling to me know
Though you're not really here
Somehow lost inside
A life now lived in memory
And walking in the shoes of
The one you used to be

Needing you somehow
To put your faith in me
And if you take my hand
Know I need you like you need me
I'm standing at the edge of your world
Hoping you'll let me in
Standing at the edge of your world
Hoping you'll let me in

And as silence grows old
And the words break free
See the shadows fall over me

Needing you somehow
To share your tale with me
Feels I'm lost alike
If I help you you might help me
I'm standing at the edge of your world
Hoping you'll let me in
Standing at the edge of your world
Hoping you'll let me in
Track Name: Lifetime
I've made the most of my lifetime
I've had my share of laughs
I have three kids that I'm proud of
And a loving wife
I've taken a shot at the dreams I had
For at least I tried and found my peace of mind

I fought my fights, now it's time to let go
Take me home, and let me be
I've worn my heart out, now I'll reste my soul
Take me home, I'll rest in peace

I never cared much for fortune nor fame
I had much simpler taste
I had my job during the day
At night took care of my family
The only reason I wish money I'd had
Would have been to share with you and the lads

I fought my fights, now it's time to let go
Take me home, and let me be
I've worn my heart out, now I'll reste my soul
Take me home, I'll rest in peace

I fought my fights, now it's time to let go
Take me home, and let me be
I've worn my heart out, now I'll reste my soul
Take me home, I'll rest in peace
Track Name: I'll be your Clown
Why don't you come by my place today ?
Together we'll waste time
Talk about nothing with a serious face
Turn the world upside down
We'll ponder on the weight of gravity
We'll pull faces and frown
See if the apple still falls from the tree
And if we'll eat now

Come, come my way
Together we'll waste time
Smile, laugh for me, I'll be your clown

We'll go and wander around town all day
And we'll just read the signs
And no matter how many roads we take
We'll be on the right path
We'll go down to the park sit on a bench
And watch the world go mad
Look up at the clouds and their funny shapes
Make our zoo of the skies

Come , come my way
Together we'll chase clouds
Smile, laugh for me, I'll be your clown

Smile, laugh for me, I'll be your clown

Smile, laugh for me, I'll be your clown

Smile, laugh for me, I'll be your clown
Track Name: When you're Around
Who is it that you see when you look into my eyes ?
Am I the shadow of me trapped in my own disguise ?
There's still so much to be seen behind this enveloppe of lies
I'm longing to be set free to be back by your side

'Cause you' re the one to make me better
You know when I'm feeling down
'Cause you 're the one to bring me happiness
When you're around

Of all the things I could be I'm a stranger to your heart know
The promises I can't keep I know they're leaving me out
There's still so much I can feel, so little gets out
I'm longing to be set free to be back by your side

'Cause you' re the one to make me better
You know when I'm feeling down
'Cause you 're the one to bring me happiness
When you're around

Wherever you go please take me with you
You know it's bringing me down
'Cause you're the one to calm my loneliness
When you're around

Hum hum hummm......

There's still so much I can feel, so little gets out
I'm longing to be set free to be back by your side

'Cause you' re the one to make me better
You know when I'm feeling down
'Cause you 're the one to bring me happiness
When you're around

Wherever you go please take me with you
You know it's bringing me down
'Cause you're the one to calm my loneliness
When you're around
Track Name: Always with Me
Every second of every day, I want to hear what you have to say
You can tell me about your joys and pains, the crazy thoughts inside your head
I'm here for you darling, I 'm here for you

In a corner of my mind, like a little ghost you hang around
You help me find my place in time, and help make sense of what I find
You always with me darling, you're everywhere I go
You always with me darling, you're everywhere I go

So what is it I am missing ? The part of me you take with you ?
Got me puzzled by the pieces, standing here without a clue
You got me wondering darling, who am I without you ?
You got me wondering darling, what am I to do ?

I want to be the friend you need, despite this growing sense inside of me
That these feelings won't let me be, fighting not to give in hopelessly
I 'm fighting for you darling, I'm fighting for you

So give me all you have to give, I know I can't ask more of you
You know each day I count my blessings, for these moments I share with you
For when you're happy darling, don't you know it makes me happy too ?
For when you're smiling darling, it puts a smile on my face too

So give me all you have to give, I know I can't ask more of you
You know each day I'll count my blessings, for these moments I'll share with you
For our friendship's the greatest thing, the truest love I ever knew
And it's enough for me darling, if it's enough for you
Track Name: The kind Kind
You find beauty in everything
The wonder in every little thing
The simple joy of simply being
By your side in your company

And I see how people look at you
The kindness in your eyes they see it too
They know they have a friend in you
And when they open up their hearts you welcome them with open arms

It’s true that when I'm with you
The world takes on new colors and the skies they never looked so blue
Everywhere, there's music in the air
Colours ans sound just dance around across the town
For a joyfull ride on life's merry go'round
As another day goes by by your side

And as another day begins
I'm taken by this peaceful joyfull feeling
That there's nowhere else I'd rather be
And nothing I'd rather be doing

And you make it all look so simple
Like just anything right nows possible
And nothing's to good to be true
You got me shooting for the stars
I feel like reaching for the moon

It’s true that when I'm with you
The world takes on new colors and the skies they never looked so blue
Everywhere, there's music in the air
Colours ans sound just dance around across the town
For a joyfull ride on life's merry go'round
As another day goes by by your side
Track Name: Heart
Turn to see I'm still besides you
Heal your soul stay close to mine
And I realise I'm whole beside you

Turn to face the lies we live through
Know this truth your heart denies
Hear that voice inside that guides you
Trust these wounds will heal in time
And fight to survive that past that hurt you

See the hold those fears have on you
How the words betray your mind
Share the tales of ghosts that haunt you
Know those scars will fade in time
And fight to survive this past that hurt you

Turn to see I'm still besides you
Heal your soul stay close to mine
And I realise I'm whole beside you
Track Name: By your Side
I don't know brought you to me love
Maybe it's all part of a plan
So many questions and doubts to keep up
Only you can ease my worried mind

I'll give you all my love in this little time we have
'Cause life just makes sense when I'm by your side

And I've no clue why it is we're here for
It feels like it's just out of our hand
While there's no telling what we will become
For now I feel I understand

I'll give you all my love in this little time we have
'Cause life just makes sense when I'm by your side

You just sweep away my doubts

I'll give you all my love in this little time we have
'Cause life just makes sense when I'm by your side

It ain't easy now I know
How this life can run you down, down to your core
Just how easy it is to let go
But with you I know I'll grow old
