Amber 05:01
Watch the water shimmering As the sun sets and the amber glaze falls Where the sky meets the earth That’s where I’ll be, mind, soul and body Absorb the beauty of each sight As we pass the river flowing down the mountainside Where you can shout and not be heard Let it all out and find some peace within your own words How free it would feel With that gentle breeze against your skin Oh you could just take it all in It’s like I’m in a trance Hypnotised by your soft song All these words I can’t unhear Still in my ear
2.
These falling lights before me are not angels They’re only headlights rolling down on some sliproad Out here we’re lost, we are lost in faint illusions As each one passes in this universal state of wilted wonder Seeking refuge, or just running from themselves I’m running too, running from my own expression This distant city reminds us that we’re only Faceless passengers, swallowed by the pit of night We go unheeded, as soon as seen we are forgotten We’re only drifting, with just the motion to believe in Will these hands grip the wheel ‘til I am home And the notion hits me, I could lose it all right here But there’s no fear There’s no fear These falling lights
3.
I wait for you to call me yours Pray we break conventions, all the norms You wait for me to call you mine But I can’t make that first move all the time They say love works in mysterious ways They say love hurts but we don’t feel the same They say love works, so let it work for you and I I wait to hold you in my arms Let’s begin a journey together, no false alarms Do you pray to meet me just the same? ‘Cause I wanna feel how my tongue feels saying your name They say love works in mysterious ways They say love hurts but we don’t feel the same They say love works, so let it work for you and I When I sing this song to you out there Your heart is beating, mine beats elsewhere But maybe one day we’ll synchronise And I’ll gaze into your eyes

One Day 04:41
In the year of 1992 you did all you could do to make me smile And after all these years it seemed that all my hates and fears had gone awhile No longer under your roof but I follow suit, please know you’re in my mind And know that we’re here if ever your sons seem hard to find I see so many children who never got quite what I got back then If, but, who, what, why? The only question I would ask was “When”? For every child should know that they can be whoever That this is their world now They’ll reach their dreams somehow if they wanna And one day I’ll be old and grey With no other way to call you ‘Home’ And you know that all the time that’s passed All the love will last and carry on I wanna be if but only half of what you were to me I wanna be just like you I wanna be, I’ve gotta be, I need to be just like you

Bittersweet 03:40
Born a miracle child to a mother worthwhile Unaware of what they would find For the first year of her life they felt so paralysed By this bittersweet surprise Soon she became the age to know the past and what changed And understand what it meant these days Now her mother stays strong while her father hangs on Gone their separate ways but their love for her stays the same She’s more places to call her home More people to love Everywhere that she goes She can travel around the world Without fear of time or pills or hospital bills

Take Me Back 03:20
You’d hear a raindrop fall Sound resonate these stone cold walls Like a moth to the flame I hear that silent refrain When you call my name Stare blank at the sea again Don’t know where time has gone my friend Seasons end though they’ve just begun Things pass by in the blink of an eye One day when we’re old and grey we can rest our weary bones Let go of the pettiness that lives deep within our heads Take me back, darling, take me back Darling, take me back to when life was simpler I wrote you a letter once From one writer to another Guess you’ll never know We’ll learn first hand what it takes To grow and discover life on our own
8.
Moments 05:09
Faceless wanderer, chasing blindly a star Not quite following your heart Never taking in, living life in sin Again You should know that your feet still touch the ground The tick, tock clock is turning The world’s still spinning round And that life’s for learning All these moments, with all these moments we change Oh things change Placeless ponderer, lying only to oneself Oblivious to happiness as wealth Never share a smile, never making life worth while Again You should know that I smiled as I passed But a smile’s designed to last Don’t look up, don’t look back Or we’ll lose them to the past How I wish I could take in these moments that we make Between ourselves

Down Here 03:54
The evening shadows disappear And in the darkness the air becomes so clear Should be the perfect time to pray In the absence of the garish light of day Only stars can hear us now The heavens hold no comfort But in this emptiness we’ll learn To live down here Through sleepless nights of hopeless fear When the dawn’s cold kiss never seems to draw near The hollow skies won’t tranquilise They won’t offer up anything but distant lies The evening shadows disappear And in the darkness the air becomes so clear But I’ll rest easy ‘til daylight ‘Cos no bitter spirit walks in my dreams tonight Only stars can hear us now The heavens hold no comfort We’re all alone now But in this emptiness we’ll learn To live down here
10.
Into The Sea 04:40
I know I ought not to care When the summer turns to go It’s only, only the seasons Not my fault I know You know you’ve done all you can But you can’t turn the tide And now, come sunset, Won’t you stay by my side So take my hand and we’ll go together Watch us as we walk into the sea As the golden glow of the evening draws us nearer As the sun dips lower and waves they rise And the salty wind is all that brings Tears to our eyes You and I picked our way Through the wasteland of the beach And the gulls, the swell, the current Drags us far out of reach So take my hand and we’ll go together
11.
In The Wild 02:59
Twilight night, infant tears Distant memories of those years Sea of cribs, guilty air Absent story, in another’s care Dear Michael, please know that you’re far from alone Here’s a new place you can always call ‘Home’ And though you saw light first far, far away Rest assured you’re thought of each and every day Smiling innocence, wailing child Left to become a man in the wild Through love we find in this cruel life We feel the pain, we fill the scars Dear Michael, please know that you’re far from alone Here’s a new place you can always call ‘Home’ And though you saw light first far, far away Rest assured you’re thought of each and every day
12.
In a room so full she is alone Bird tattoo on her shoulder blade so cold She’s built her walls up so high But they’ve been unhinged and begin to fall Never in one place she calls home Never long enough to be set in stone Patiently she’ll wait eager to learn Leaving her worries behind on the bedroom floor Learn laugh live love These are the things that we sought from above Over the sea other voices you hear Over and over year after year When you think of me what do you see Frightened young girl too scared to be But in these changing times I have found Myself and what it means to be free
13.
Night falls over us and asks us to trust In this Eden to keep hold while we’re asleep Outside stars appear as you voice calls so clear We have found our place Our own quiet space Leave this island Steal away Break this silence In which we lay Hopeless eyes saw fear But still you’re here Lying tongues taught pain But still you came Leave this island Steal away Break this silence In which we lay Leave this island We’ll take our chance Sweet asylum In your arms To feel this peace once more To feel this soul touch yours
