OCEAN & THE MOON

You were meant to be my home

Like a force that can't be known

Like the ocean & the moon

I'm connected to you

All I know, All I know

We will never be the same

We don't need to play those games

Your eyes are greater than the frame

You were meant to be my home

Like a force that can't be known

Like the ocean & the moon

I'm connected to you

When I met you I was thrown

Like a ripple in a pond

And the shockwaves carry on

I'm a lake and you're the stone

Like the ocean & the moon

YOU'VE GOT IT WRONG

Listen close, you’ve got it wrong

Blaming me for things that I’ve not done

You jump the gun and shoot your mouth

So convinced of your lies

You think you’re wise

 

You’ve got it wrong

You’ve got it wrong, got it wrong

Where do we go from here?

 

You may regret, the words that passed

You’ve said your piece, that the peace won’t last

You don’t care, if the gasket blows

The mistakes you make, they are yours to own

 

You’ve got it wrong

You’ve got it wrong, got it wrong

Where do we go from here?

Where do we go from here?

Where do we go from here?

MIGHTIER

Blood is thicker than water

Water is the bringer of life

Life can sometimes bring darkness

Darkness is diminished by light

Longing for a peaceful sky

A sky that joins the lines of fray

We are all the space between stars

Drifting like a ship without a bay

Light up the dark

Acting from the heart

Light up the dark

Let the sword depart

Light up the dark

Now's the time to start

Light up the dark

Let the sword depart

I AM

I am the one who rises with the sun

You don't know me 'cos when you wake

I am gone, I am gone

I am the one who takes the time to care

Minutes to hours, when you're weak

I am there, I am there

I am the one

I am the one

I am the one

I am the one who takes a risk each day

Through the smoke, hold your breath

Ease your pains, ease your pains

I am the one

I am the one

I am the one

Look around take a note of your brothers

Put one foot in front of the other

You're never alone

Be amazed by the beat of the rabble

Step by step you'll see things unravel

You're never alone

SOUNDWAVES OF GOLD

I said to the man on the door of my calm

Let me in, it's time to begin

He said I must go to a town in the midst of it all

Acoustics enthral

And now I have come to a place

Where my frequency's sold

In Soundwaves of Gold

The town was cursed by the beats

And must dance for their souls, so it was told

But they don't seem to mind

It's a small price to hold for Soundwaves of Gold

And now I have come to a place

Where my frequency's sold

In Soundwaves of Gold

MOUNTAIN

This mountain of mine

A vision of good in my life

A silence up high

A strength that stands tall by my side

This mountain of mine

You're all that I need to get by

A version of I

You make me want to aim high

You're the reason i stay

You're the light in my cave

You're the words that I kiss

You're the bringer of bliss

You're the waves, I'm the sand

You're the palm in my hand

You are this mountain of mine

I am tall by your side

FEAR OF WOLVES

Fear takes me over

Controlling my head

Can't eat and I can't sleep

For fear of what happens when I fail

Fear makes the wolf bigger than it is

Fear makes the fire stronger than it is

Fear makes the journey longer than it is

Fear makes the wolf bigger than it is

You need to gain control

You're afraid of yourself

Of what you can do

And what you cannot, you will fall harder

Fear makes the wolf bigger than it is

Fear makes the fire stronger than it is

Fear makes the journey longer than it is

Fear makes the wolf bigger than it is

Fear, fear, fear takes me over

FOUND

I went down the only road I know

Silent cure

Shadows are mocking you for more

They surround me deadly sharks and foe

Dare to dare

Vipers'll linger if you care

Repeatedly I will bring myself down

That inner voice is nagging

Aims to loosen my crown

It pulls me down, I see the ground

If I am strong and I am proud

Then I am found

I can be my biggest enemy

Sound it out

Show them what you're all about

Repeatedly I will bring myself down

That inner voice is nagging

Aims to loosen my crown

It pulls me down, I see the ground

If I am strong and I am proud

Then I am found

Sometimes I feel it's taking its toll on me

I never want to let it get underneath

Sometimes I feel its taken the best of me

I never want to let it get underneath

It pulls me down, I see the ground

If I am strong and I am proud

Then I am found

HOME FROM HOME

Home is anywhere you belong my friend

Turn handles to your heart

Like the deep night sky, the measure of life

When you find your Home From Home

When I look beyond all the here, the now

I see the real, the right

When it came to me, It brought me to my knees

I had found my Home From Home

When you're close to touch

Then reach out for me

You may just find the key

Not as hard it seems, to swing from the trees

I have found my Home From Home

Home is anywhere you belong my friend

Turn handles to your heart

Like the deep night sky, the measure of life

When you find your Home From Home

When you find your Home From Home

LITTLE FACE

Little face, here is safe

Little smile, stay a while

Until all your roots are strong

Little hands, don't let go

Little grin, stay and win

Until all your roots are strong

Until you're well

Little dove, rise above

Soar through winds, little wings

Until all your roots are strong

Little face, here is safe

Little grin, stay and win

Until all your roots are strong

Until you're well

SALTWATER

So long, so long

I slept but without dreaming

You woke me from the slumber

And now I dream of songs

My love, my love

You are salt and I the water

And now we are the ocean

We move in fluid motion

Now even

Even in shadows I feel warm

I'm glad the day my heart was cast

And you were mine at last

You were mine at last

REMEMBER ME

Hear in the wind

Whispers of us my friend

Echoes of what used to be 

Remember me

ON THE MOVE

Wondering off

Silver and copper

Onto the next door step

Bring me along

Pack me in your bag

Take me 

On the move

Islands abroad

Air, road or water

So much to see and to do

Carry with you

Memories of all this

Take them

On the move

On and on

Never gone too long

On and on

Bring me with you

On the road again

On and on

THE AFFAIR

There by the phone again

She sits all alone again

And when he comes hoe it's a distant cry

Of love that once was full of endless life

Light casts a gloomy truth

She yearns for the days of youth

The scent of perfumed skin on his clothes depart

She reaches for a knife with a desperate heart

Night of a thousand moons

She weeps as the curtains close

An aching sorrow lingers in the air

The love that once was is no longer there

ALARMS RING OUT

It's early morning and alarms ring out

Beat my head about again

I'll take the good, the bad, the anything

Be there for my kin always

Will the routine ever end?

And can the situation mend?

Or will it pull us out of trend?

We'll lay them out all side by side

And you will find that you can walk for miles

And never touch the ground

It's early morning and alarms ring out

Beat my head about again

I'll take the good, the bad, the anything

Be there for my kin always

Take a stand and start again

Build a life up for yourself

Leave the wrong turns on the shelf

We'll lay them out all side by side

And you will find that you can walk for miles

And never touch the ground

It's early morning and alarms ring out

Beat my head about again

I'll take the good, the bad, the anything

Be there for my kin always

THE RECORD SHOP

Every week I buy a record from the shop around the corner

A piece of time that's written in the tramlines of the vinyl

The old man serves me coffee and we talk about the weather

His voice is husk and holds a solemn song

Every week I buy a record from the shop around the corner

The building has charisma proudly standing on the hillside

A glimmer of the ocean as I look through the window

And I can't help but feel like something has died

Every week I buy a record from the shop around the corner

The old man grows more distant every time I go to see him

"I don't see as many faces as I used to" he tells me

He feels the record's lost, just like his shop

I used to buy records from the shop around the corner

The old man served me coffee and we'd talk about the weather

Now the shop has gone and my weekly past time's over

I fear the record's lost... just like the shop

NEON LOVE SONG

Lay me down on velvet ground

Taste your last embrace

Ambience and power

Power and grace

Power and grace

Not a case of monochrome love

It's a full spectrum glove

Ambience and power

Power and grace

Power and grace

This is a Neon love Song

Hear the voice of something silver

Rush of crimson thunder

Ambience and power

Power and grace

Power and grace

OVERGROWN

Imagine the future

It's me and a dream

With arms 'round each other

A luxury scene

Never before have I taken a fall

That makes me want to stop

Hope has gone from my dreams

I cannot see you

All this aside I've got love in my life

And yet somehow it seems

Hope has gone from my dreams

I cannot see you

Now I cannot see you

It's all overgrown

I'm clearing the ruins

I'm climbing the tree

To help all the others

I need to fix me

Never before have I taken a fall

That makes me want to stop

Hope has gone from my dreams

I cannot see you

All this aside I've got love in my life

And yet somehow it seems

Hope has gone from my dreams

I cannot see you

Now I cannot see you

It's all overgrown

TOUCH MY BONES

I stand in a line up of three

A rabbit a hedgehog and me

Remove all the things that you see

Deep in my core is the key

Touch my bones

You can touch my bones

I stand on the edge of my heart

Don't really know where to start

We pass by each other each day

Don't really know what to say

Touch my bones

You can touch my bones

This is not a whisper of my affections

I will shout them loud

ENGLISH RAIN

Catching up on old times

I learned a lot about you

From someone else

Everybody needs someone

And you had yours

But what difference

Could one more have made

In a world of closed doors?

Open up, let in the air

Flood your thoughts with English rain

Everybody needs someone

And you had yours

But what difference 

Could one more have made

In a world of closed doors?

Flood your thoughts with English rain

Don't drown, float away

Everybody needs someone

And you had yours

But what difference

Could one more have made

In a world of closed doors?

SQUARE

It is fine to walk in line

Oh you're a square

Oh I'm a square

Oh we are square

Oh we are square

I don't mind the talk in rhyme

Oh you're a square

Oh I'm a square

Oh we are square

Oh we are square

I want to make this clear

Why should I care if I prefer tea to beer?

Does that make me square?

I want to make this clear

I couldn't care less

I prefer tea to beer

Maybe I'm square

Oh you're a square

Oh I'm a square

Oh we are square

Oh we are square

IN THE ARMS OF ANOTHER DAY

Sunshine fills my room today

The morrow brings a mellow haze

Never know if I should stay

I'll leave it in the arms of another day

I love it but I hate it

I'm trapped but I want to be trapped

I'm here but I'm not quite there

Busy chasing a lost dream

Autumn orange plays misty on my mind

Departing is the time I find

On and on this delicate dismay

I'll leave it in the arms of another day

I love it but I hate it

I'm trapped but I want to be trapped

I'm here but I'm not quite there

Busy chasing a lost dream

Days come but the clock is lost

Days go and still no better off

Never know if I should stay

I will leave it in the arms of another day

I love it but I hate it

I'm trapped but I want to be trapped

I'm here but I'm not quite there

Busy chasing a lost dream

A PICTURE OF YOU

With the sun light on my face

I remember the days of a golden haze

One day when I am back with you

i won't be feeling these blues

They will be gone, gone, gone.

I write from afar with tales of my scars

Holding a picture of you

What gets me through are the memories of youth

And a picture of you

Memories of youth and a picture of you

With the evening drawing in

The cold air clinging to my skin

I keep you deep within

In a box beside my bed

i have saved all the things you said

You're never gone, gone, gone

I write from afar with tales of my scars

Holding a picture of you

What gets me through are the memories of youth

And a picture of you

Memories of youth and a picture of you

Writing from afar with tales of my scars

All that gets me through are thoughts of youth

And a picture of you

BE WITH YOU ALWAYS

See her long brown hair

And her deep blue eyes wash over me

i ask her what's her name and she says...

"Why do you want to know my name?"

You're not like any of the others

I can see me with you always

I could be with you always

I could be with you always

Feel his inner song

Singing out I harmonise along

Like a pulse plays with my rhythm of life

Should I lose myself or hold back for now

You're not like any of the others

I can see me with you always

I could be with you always

I could be with you always

I will be with you always

I will be with you always
