Track Name: Island (Powdered Sunshine)
Island
Laura Hill © 2013

Vs 1
Heading east, in a tiny plane
From the journey you want come back the same
Don’t need baggage, don’t need shoes
Don’t need no phone line
And there are no rules

Chorus
And when we get there
They’ll be powered sunshine in our hair
We’ll dive in the blue
Dreamed this island

Vs2
Cascade falling
Sleepy Milky Way
All our worries
They wash away
Take my hand,
Pretty shore line
Whisper secrets,
I’ll tell you mind

Dreamed this island for you.
Track Name: Litte Red Riding Hood
Little Red Riding Hood,
By Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs 1966
Adapted / covered by Laura Hill 2013


Little Red Riding Hood

Little red riding hood,
My oh my you sure look good
Are you lost my dear

Little red riding hood,
Walking in that wicked wood,
Come closer my dear

What big eyes you have,
Bet they’ve seen something bad
With your sheep white skin,
I would like to get my teeth in

What full lips your have
Bet they’ll do something bad
Before you get to grandmas place
Walk with me and you will be safe.

Hoooowl – Little red riding hood
Hoooowl – Miss riding hood
Hoooowl - little red riding hood
Miss riding you sure do look good.

Little red riding hood,
I Cant help this but if I could, I would stay away from girls like you
Little red riding hood, can’t help it but if you could,
You should stay away from the big bad wolf like me

Miss riding hood you sure do taste good!
Track Name: Endless Summer
Endless summer

Vs1
Endless Summer – I wanna be like you
Spring was the start, skip to my heart
You walk in the rain

Endless Summer – I wanna be like you
Sit by my side, don’t tell me lies
We sleep in the shade

Chorus
Lay me down (before I get older)
Summer now (over my shoulder)
Seasons collide (so does the incoming tide)
Please don’t go.

Vs2
Endless Summer – I wanna be like you
Your Summery way is all I can taste
Sweet Lemonade

Endless Summer – I wanna be like you
Chillin me out, cooling me down
Swim in the bay

Chorus

VS3
Endless Summer – I wanna be like you
I must confess
My heart is a mess –I’m falling for you
Endless Summer – I wanna be like you
Wanna dance in the waves don’t want to behave

Chorus
Track Name: Purple
Purple
By Laura Hill 2011

Well the sky is soaked with purple,
There’s a funny mood that lingers in the air
It’s been years since I’ve seen you,
Feel you in the floorboards and the walls
You’re the ghost of the past, this feeling lasts a lifetime
I do no wrong, but I can’t move on but I try.

Chorus
But I miss you
And the rain is falling down

Vs2
Now I’ll paint you a picture, but I wont use my hands,
Bleed into the canvas; flesh and blood is all I am
But my heart is something different,
My soul is mine alone
And I know that you are with me
No matter where I go

Chorus
But I miss you

Bridge
And I want the sun to come out and play
Wipe those old bruises away

Chorus
I miss you

Outro x2
Coming up slowly, and it brings me down
Creeps up slowly from the inside out

Ends
But I miss you
