Verse 1:

Listen to me – I get no rest , what I see in the rising on my chest
Is belief, a blind man’s dream and a thief stealing all of me

Pre-Chorus:

In the day and through the night, there is no ceasing of the fight
To win the hearts of those who need love

Chorus:

Insomnia – I just can’t sleepInsomnia – and what I reap
Is constant deprivation of hateful condemnation
And you, you are always on my mind

Verse 2:

This isn’t for fools a tight rope walk a peer ravine and a little less talk
From pouting lips; a kiss to wake her up a peaceful prince could only be enough

Verse 3:

In the dead of night, eyes that shine shouldn’t be believed unless it’s fine
From a blood-filled heart you’ll understand don’t turn away from love filled hands

Verse 1:
I was wondering along, wading through those tears
I was searching for truth, through the lens of my fears
I wrestled with you through the night
It was at the cross road where you showed me your light

Chorus:

I took my chances seeking you, but I found my meaning pursuing you

Verse 2:

I was broken confused, fighting through those tears
Still pursuing the truth, overcoming the fears
I wrestled with you in the night
You take me back to the cross road, where you show me your light

Chorus:

I took my chances seeking you, but I found my meaning pursuing you
I took my chances seeking you, but I found my meaning pursuing you

 

Verse 1:

42 isn’t you but what they say it must be true,
Self-denial is like a badge of honour you wear,
The scenery, the greenery, like a doctored image I see,
Philosophically it is the cross you bear

Verse 2:

Compassion stalled, giants fall yet they weren’t very big at all,
Tragedy isn’t comedy you learn,
Television screen hypocrisy, what you see is what you believe,
Outside of that, you will never yearn

Pre-Chorus:

What do you make of this?
The choice that you’re presented with,
You could walk away or talk away
But that would never be OK: verbalise your promises

Chorus:

This is love
This is love

Verse 3:

Damages, disparages held in unwanted marriages,
Love is bottled commodity,
Break the mould, then unfold don’t let life get too old,
Only the truth will set you free

Time & Tide

Verse 1:

I went running through the city, where is she where can she be?
If I could only find my lover, if only she would wait for me
And if I see her then I’ll hold her and all I’ll ever do is love
She’s so dear and special, is love always enough?

Chorus:

And where she goes I’ll follow and you know she means everything to me
I’ll be all that I can be: a boy and a girl,
And when she grows I know it the Spirit flows and love comes down to me
I’ll be all that I can be: a boy and girl

Verse 2:

There are many different alleys and down everyone a fake
But if I only trust in love it’s there where I place my faith
There are streets between us and sometimes it seems so vast
Can my heart  keep  up love? Or are we moving too fast?

Bridge:

For better for worse for nothing in her purse
For life and death, blessing and curse
Can I really love and make sure it’s enough?
Holding hands on a beach, I love all that stuff

Verse 1:

See the sunrise followed by a sunset, risky trivialities stalked by regret,
Linear line-dancing you’ll always forget, repeating repetition

Verse 2:

Spoke the tired mother’s son “I sold my soul; so I thought I’d won,
The Lantern’s lit now it’s begun,” repeating repetition

Chorus:

So the wheel goes round, round and round again,
The wheel goes round; it spins until the end,
We witness through all time, trip your life over the rhyme,
Our wheels go round

Verse 3:

Art dealers watch the theatre of fools, laughing at reflections, their clothes are ridiculed,
The son becomes a father and he follows the mule, repeating indecision
Tracing eternity, a circle in the air, the triangle breaks the cycle of despair,
Equal opportunities riding at the fair, supporting repetition

Verse 1:

Searching through the desert I’ve lost my way again
This dune seems to have so many memories
Still slipping down embankments,
my head is held between two orbits
Then I stumble to my knees

Verse 2:

This is my destination; where I am is where I’ve got to be
To learn to fight through my fear
The wind is blowing in the night time
and it’s hard to keep my ground
But your footprints are near

Chorus:

And you know this is the place I wander,
For I am the one who always wonders
All the things that are yet unseen
Their murky faces shining towards,
Remembering then and moving forwards
Their reflections left in thing they don’t need
I’m living on the edge of time, between the coldness and the fire
This world don’t hold nothing for me

Verse 3:

And soon enough the night has passed the sun is up and shining on me now
And I can see the light again
But I’m still walking through this desert until the edge of time comes around
And there’s a brighter day ahead

Bridge:

And I’ve seen what has been offered; the world and it’s fake miracle cure
But my heart feels like it’s always aching,
With your hands outstretched I know I’m secure I know I’m secure

Verse 1:

Dancing round the issue won’t ever ever make it go away,
That ring in your pocket isn’t faith it will lead you to dismay
It doesn’t really matter what trip you think you’re on
Or if it feels good now because you’re missing out my son,
Wisdom doesn’t come from making right decisions anyway

Chorus:

Oh and you’re growing all the time,
In estimations of your life you were living all the time
Mind you keep upon the road,
Set by lovers long ago; watch for the darkness seeping in

Verse 2:

Not trusting your companions can lead to the undoing of us all,
The more you wear the ring the more you get the pride before the fall,
And wearing that thing sparingly will turn your vision east,
Where life began in darkness where love is underneath
But have an opportunity to take it and then seal it on the shelf

Bridge:

Run through; run through the darkness,
Until you’re helpless because you’ve already won,
Fight fire; let flames rise sky ward
Out of the dark wood; because you’ve already won

Verse 1:

Do you live in poverty? Underneath a diamond sea
The oxygen that was meant for me is wearing pretty thin,
Beauty (they say) comes from inside, something we all try to hide
You don’t know what’s in my mind, please just look away

Pre-Chorus:

Everything I do  is for you, and this sentiment won’t do,
But I love you and I want you to love me to

Chorus:

Always I find you there, always I find you there

Verse 2:

Look at life bought with a price don’t you find it rather nice?
Shall we all just have a slice and leave it when it’s done?
Or is there more than we see, stirring down inside of me?
‘I’ll only have it, if it’s free” – is my first reply

Verse 1:

You’re a cherrypicker, it’s life without the Seed,
Full of want and lack of need.
You’re a bumper sticker, advertising truth,
But it’s sliding off of you.

Pre-Chorus:

Yeah you are, you’re the one,
Who comes along and breaks our hearts

Chorus:

You know you’re in the truth when the world wants to drown you
You know you’re in the truth when the world wants to drown you

Verse 2:

You’re a contract breaker, you’re in it for you,
But one day you will have to choose.
The shallow of the deep end, with smoke and mirrors too,
Your bells and whistles all out of tune.

Verse 1:

Oh how you disgust me, make me feel unclean
Like saying you’re something and that ain’t what you mean
There’s a continental breeze coming off the sea
Come put on your overcoat yes it’s time to swim

Chorus:

Won’t you fly little bluebird,  fly little bluebird,
Won’t you fly little bluebird,  won’t you fly… little bluebird, fly, fly, fly

Verse 2:

Words soar from your mouth but your nose is getting big
Straightening your hair while showing off your wig
Define your light; stop lying when you sing
Why don’t you fly? I know you’ve got your wings

Bridge:

The cage is open; the cage is open
But you don’t want to fly; it could be too high
You are a prisoner and you are the guard

Verse 1:

Did you lose it when you put it in to manual,
or did you love like you had it before?
Did you look like that so you couldn’t be found out?
Don’t want to be caught without
Come on I remember, come on be reminded

Verse 2:

Do you recall the hour we spent together?
Lasting from December to December
The way I used to know your name, now it feels like it went away
Come on I remember, come on be reminded

Chorus:

From the first time I laid my eyes on you,
Won’t be the last time I felt the word of truth
Now I found the greatest gift of all, from the first time,
From the first time

Verse 3:

I took the reins and rode into the midnight;
I seemed to take no hint of the daylight
Then you came to me and told me to come back again,
and as I’m riding I’ll be home one day
Come on I remember, come on back receive my love

Bridge:

I’m coming back home love, I’m coming back home

Verse 1:

I may not see you in the morning, I may not see you in the noon,
I may not see you through the night but I hope to see you soon
I may be scattered into dust, forget about the promise too,
I may be shattered into atoms but I hope to see you soon

Chorus:

What if I never see this butterfly, from the cocoon learning how to fly
One thing I’ll hold on to is that I will see you soon

Verse 2:

And as I look into the future, I’m at the porch waiting for you
I see you running in the distance and I’ll be running straight to you
Love will hurt all pride and sorrow, love is such amazing truth,
So I’ll see you tomorrow and I know you’ll see me soon

Little Bluebird

Single Released 16th November 2018

Verse 1:

Oh how you disgust me, make me feel unclean
Like saying you’re something and that ain’t what you mean
There’s a continental breeze coming off the sea
Come put on your overcoat yes it’s time to swim

Chorus:

Won’t you fly little bluebird,  fly little bluebird,
Won’t you fly little bluebird,  won’t you fly… little bluebird, fly, fly, fly

Verse 2:

Words soar from your mouth but your nose is getting big
Straightening your hair while showing off your wig
Define your light; stop lying when you sing
Why don’t you fly? I know you’ve got your wings

Bridge:

The cage is open; the cage is open
But you don’t want to fly; it could be too high
You are a prisoner and you are the guard

Verse 1:

I’m knocking at the door, on one’s letting me in at all
Oh I’ve got the key but it means bending down you see
And I tried to make it on my own – Although this safely is my home,
I’ll end up being alone – Unless one wise child realises

Chorus:

Look at me now, look at me now and my heart keeps beating out
Look at me now, look at me now and everyone is laughing
Cos I’m wearing the emperor’s new clothes

Verse 2:

Faith is a werewolf howling, scratching round in the dark all night,
Lead by a blind man leading I’m in need of some healing alright
And I tried to make it on my own I just set my heart and mind’s tone
For a spirit who can’t find a home – Unless one wise child realises

Bridge:

Now I see me for the first time, for the first time,
My pain can be healed for all time, for all time,
I’m letting go, I’ll be known as I’m known, I’m letting go

Verse 1:

Oh brother where did you go? 6 years of love with nothing to show,
There’s a pile of sawdust where you cut out my heart
It sits in the corner of the cutting room floor

Verse 2:

Too many mistakes setting on guard, there’s always two sides in a civil war,
The grass is always greener, except when it’s not
‘Too many mistakes’ is all that I’ve got

Chorus 1:

It’s like sanding down the original wood
But all you’ll find is the same old soul, what’s the point?
Wearing a paper crown like a symbol of renown
That forces a frown upon a head of gold

Verse 3:

Loyalty fades when you find you’re in love
Holding her hand like it is enough
I’ll still be your best if that’s what you want
But it’s more likely that you’ll take a cheap shot

Chorus 2:

Varnishing a cracked old book, made from the finest wood,
What’s the point?
Wearing a paper crown, like a symbol of renown,
Using your trusty trowel does your garden grow?

Verse 4:

Oh brother look at you now
Taller than the man you cut down
What does it mean with pride in your all?
Timber is shouted and then comes the fall

Edge of Time

Single Released 12th October 2018

Verse 1:

Searching through the desert I’ve lost my way again
This dune seems to have so many memories
Still slipping down embankments,
my head is held between two orbits
Then I stumble to my knees

I found my soul in the early morning,
between a temple and a paper bag
I count my blessings with a calculator and all the things I never had

Verse 2:

As I walk through that darkened valley,
the one of the shadow of death
I’m finding out it can be quite lonely and yeah I think I lost myself

Pre-Chorus:

Woah, woah, seeing things I never before
Woah, woah, and now I know I just want more

Chorus:

Cause I’m wearing a western crown,
Come on poverty bow down,
Make my shiny shoes for a penny a day and I’ll walk right over you

Verse 3:

Shake your cross at the moral vampire, let him know who’s boss
But what kind of image in your mirror and was the stake meant for us?

Bridge:

Can’t have myself feeling guilty,
Distract myself with the plenty
‘Cause even with Christ I can be empty

Love, you’re walking blind alone,
Running without conscience, living in a lie,
Love, predestined and ordained from eddies in your heart,
Clean hands in the dirt

Oh Jennifer, don’t give up,
My eyes can clearly see,
Through systems of conformity,
Oh Jennifer, oh Jennifer,
You’re good enough for me

Love, how long upon the waves,
That could turn to wine if only you would cease?
Love, your testimony’s set,
Now it is unchained the scroll is bittersweet
