Track Name: Amber
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
Track Name: These Falling Lights
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
Track Name: I Wait For You
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
Track Name: One Day
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
Track Name: Bittersweet
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
Track Name: Take Me Back
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
Track Name: Moments
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
Track Name: Down Here
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
Track Name: Into The Sea
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
Track Name: In The Wild
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
Track Name: Year After Year
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
Track Name: Leave This Island
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
