Track Name: Calling To The Sun
CALLING TO THE SUN

Night's coming
What happened to the day
Feels like winter
Is never far away
So I'm calling
I'm calling to the sun
Come find me
And shine on everyone

Gentle autumn
Turning red and brown
Your leaves will soon be
Falling to the ground
I'm still calling
I'm calling to the sun
Come find me
And shine on everyone

Shine
Shine

Your red brick houses
Glistening with rain
Now it's time to
Put away the blame
I wish you'd take
Your flags down
I wish you'd take
Your flags down

Cos you could shine
Shine

***********
Track Name: Born Of Sea
BORN OF THE SEA

I held your ashes
Under the sun
They shone like diamonds
And I knew you weren't gone

Because we are just water
Born of the sea
And it's never an ending
You're flowing through me

************
Track Name: Only Love
ONLY LOVE

Forget about your gods
Forget about your gold
Listen to the wind

Cos where the wind blows
There is only love
Between a birth and ageing
There is only love
There is only love
Between the wars we're waging

And if you don't know
Then you will
If you just let it flow
Then it will

Just listen to the wind
Listen to the wind

I can hear the sound
Music's all around
The wind is singing
That there is only love
There is only love
It's in the breezes bringing

And if you don't know
Then you will
If you just let it flow
Then it will

So find a way to look within
The grace of love is everything
The clouds are just like angels' wings
And if you listen
You can hear the wind
Singing

That there is only love
There is only love
There is only love
There is only love

Just listen to the wind
Listen to the wind

Track Name: Twighlight Entwined
TWILIGHT ENTWINED

My wounds are healing
I'm still breathing
And it was too long in coming
Too long in coming

But I got my body back
I got everything
And it was too long in coming
Too long in coming back

Now I am midnight
Moonflesh my skylight
So blend into me
Bleed with me tonight

Because your twilight's got me
Your twilight's got me entwined

And over these waters
I'll shine my torchlight
Into your moonshine eyes
Into your twilight skies

And dream of your body
And dream of you with me
And it's no wonder
I can't sleep tonight

Because your twilight's got me
Your twilight's got me entwined

And it's been a long time in coming
But now it's all coming back
And now I'm breathing
I'm breathing

Because your river
Reached me
Tonight

Track Name: Homesick For Skies
HOMESICK FOR SKIES

The blue of the day
Your shimmering skyline
I'm so far away
But always it's you I come back to

You

Your indigo sea
With the velvet of nightfall
Will always be free
And always it's you I come back to

No matter how far I go
I'll always be yours you know

So bring me the sigh
Of your African skyline
To your oceans I'm tied
And you'll always be mine

No matter how far I go
I'll always be yours you know

*****************
Track Name: On A Breeze
ON A BREEZE

Just another melody
I heard it through the trees
Softly your voice calling me
Somewhere on a breeze

When you left me I was cold inside
Silence covered me
How I hated those familiar songs
But still they followed me

And music
Would start me crying

Now I play for you every day
Songs of the sea
Each note is a tiny prayer
To you from me

Sent on
A breeze

Why did you have to leave me
Why couldn't you have stayed
Just a little bit longer
Why couldn't you have stayed

************
Track Name: In That Silence
IN THAT SILENCE
---------
The silver lightship
In the starry sky
Is so much older
Than you and I

So I'll try my best
My best to forget
I'll try my best
My best to forget you

The golden night shift
A gentle sigh
It takes so long to
To say goodbye

But I'll try my best
My best to forget
I'll try my best
My best to forget

What you said in that silence
What you said in that silence
What you said in that silence

Light comes through darkness
This pain may die
Still takes so long to
To say goodbye

But I'll try my best
My best to forget
I'll try my best
My best to forget you

And what you said in that silence
What you said in that silence
What you said in that silence

Track Name: Child Of Ancestors
CHILD OF ANCESTORS

Please, please
God of the trees
Don't let me go
Before I know you

Please, please
God of the seas
Don't let me go
Before I know you

And all my ancestors
Rise up tonight
And hold me close in silence

And all my ancestors
Rise up tonight
With blood of your non-violence

So please, please
God of the trees
Don't let me go
Before I know you
