fiftypercent As good as Deacon Blue, Danny Wilson and other bands of that ilk. Dumbstruck, right from first listen, would have been a great single. Favorite track: Dumbstruck.

Track Name: The Wheels of Time
Dampening footprints got lost in the sand
Washed away by the rain and the tide
Promises made with an open hand
Are crushed in the fist you hide

Seventeen seems an early age
to be broken in two by romance
Stuck at sixteen this open cage
can only be left behind once
I didn't believe in chance

Dirty station in a seaside street
take us home from these day trip crowds
Singing songs to the railways beat
Counting the winter clouds
Hoping they'd turn around

But it's a shame if I have to call you
And say it's for just one more time
It's a game that I lost
When I had to stall you
And loving became my crime
Controlling the wheels of time...

Clever words in a pool of tears
No more than a teenage game
Saying sorry while no one hears
Hoping we'll stop the rain..

But it's a shame if I have to call you
And say it's for just one more time
It's a game that I lost
When I had to stall you
And loving became my crime
Controlling the wheels of time
