Track Name: I'll Follow The Sun
It's a cold cold morning
And I'd follow the sun
But the sun just won't come

It's a slow slow evening
And I could sleep for days
Oh but sleeping doesn't pay

And I'd follow the sun
but the sun just won't come

And in the afternoon all I do is wait here
Your presence would really make my day dear
Oh, but you just don't come

In the night-time you're always with me
Even though you're miles away in Sydney
If I could run I'd surely run

Yeah, I'd follow the sun

Chords: D... F C D
Track Name: Crazy Mountain
I walked around the edge of the island
I dipped my toes into the icy water and
I couldn't wait for the sun.

I climbed on top of the dusty mountain
Took a seat nearer to my God
But he didn't even want to come.

And I I I thought I could fly.

The snow fell deep and the window's broken
I couldn't tell if we were joking
Or if we were even having fun.

And I I I thought I was the one.

There were fishes in the sea around the island
I tried to catch one but it slipped through my fingers
And I wondered if I should have brought a gun.

Been to the top of the crazy mountain
Seen the view of all the great cities
But you and I would never have the time.
