Track Name: Cat gut and wind
A break in the waves
A break in my lips that your name came through
Slap the tide lapping
Your eyes are entrapping my heart to you

I know you’ll be gone by morning light
It is what it is
I won’t try to fight it my love
My love

A privileged boy got no reason to cry
Hold your head up high
Better to have loved and so on you know how that story goes

Time doesn’t steal, it hangs in the air
It follows us ‘round and it has not a care for my love
My love

A wonderful night what a wonderful kind of anywhere
I’m out of my shell and I’m hiding away but I couldn’t care

With catgut and wind I’m singing your tune
With the silver wheel it’s autumns moon my love
My love

Yeah with catgut and wind I’m singing your tune
With the silver wheel it’s autumns moon my love
My love
My love
Track Name: Hell bent on you
I’m hell bent on you
Angels are easy to loose
They say love is blind
Is that why I can’t find you

I’m polishing silver
I’m digging for gold
Laying to bed with the sun
Old bones and rosary stones
And all that was once said and done

Oh mercy me
The looking glass looked at me
And I saw magic that I can’t quite put my finger on

We got lost in the gale
And the wind ran away with our song
My heart went right off the rails
And it felt like it never belonged
A rock of a girl, a jasmine pearl
She glowed red from afar
Pierced my heart with her spark
Then she left of a shooting star

Oh mercy me
The looking glass looked at me
And I saw magic that I can’t quite put my finger on

Oh I’m hell bent on you
Angels are easy to loose
They say that love is blind
Is that why I can’t find you

I’m polishing silver
I’m digging for gold
I’m laying to bed with the sun
Old bones and rosary stones
And all that was once said and done

Oh mercy me
The looking glass looked at me
And I saw magic that I can’t quite put my finger on
I saw magic
That I can’t put my finger on
Track Name: Only love is real
Mother’s smile, Father’s jokes
The unknown mile and the Holy Ghost
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you feel
Only love is real

Bend your mind trying to get it in shape
Spend half your time trying to find the brakes
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you feel
Only love is real

You can worry about tomorrow
Or throw it out on the wind
Abandon sorrow
Cause it can’t change anything

And I’m walking on the shore
And I’m letting go Lord
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you feel
Only love is real

You can worry about tomorrow
Throw it out on the wind
Abandon sorrow
Cause it won’t change anything

And I’m walking on the shore
And I’m letting go Lord
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you sing

Only love is king
Don’t you love, you love
You love the way that love makes you feel
Only love is real
Only love is real
Track Name: Shake the devil down
Knotted like a string
Wound up like a spring
Trying to shake the devil down

It’s a web you weave
That sadness cannot leave
Trying to shake the devil down
And put him back down underground

Half light burn away
To a brand new day
Trying to shake the devil down

A buzz is for the bees
The breeze is for the trees
Trying to shake the devil down
See he belong down underground

I trade ghosts for the lullaby
I see salvation in your eye
Shape shift me, walk with me, stay a while
Trying to shake the devil down
And put him back down underground

I wonder are you there
Now Spring is in the air
Trying to shake the devil down

Ah red young robin breast
Gotta do our very best
Trying to shake the devil down
And put him back down underground

I trade ghosts for the lullaby
I see salvation in your eye
Hold me close and let me sleep
Into your arms my soul to keep

Shape shift me, walk with me, stay a while
Trying to shake the devil down
Shape shift me, walk with me, stay a while
Trying to shake the devil down
Trying to shake the devil down
Track Name: Cast your line
We all live sunshine and sadness
They say that we’re a mere six degrees
That everybody is somebody’s story
We go home alone when we’re through

Cast your line
Maybe time
Will be good to you

Whatever desire or flavour
Whatever you fancy as true
And both with or without a saviour
We go home alone when we’re through

Cast your line
Maybe time
Will be good to you

You were wearing the suit of regrets
No one can cast the first stone
And reflection it just brings you deeper
To you going home alone when your through

Cast your line
Maybe time
Will be good to you

Oh what troubled times we live in
The fear it grows and grows
But we know since long ago
We go home alone when we’re through

Cast your line
Maybe time
Will be good to you
Come on and follow your star
Be what you are
Feel love in your veins
Don’t be estranged
There is only one we’re all some mother’s son
Track Name: The swaying tree
Under the swaying tree
I go mitching time
From time to time
And think about all kinds of mysteries

Why is it you’re the one
How do we move around the sun
Why’d I have to go so far
To cherish things here

Does a fool play a clever hand
Can he be man
Enough to say
That he’s scared of the world

Heaven knows how much I love you
My heart beats quicker
As a candlelight flicker
Makes you a halo
Of baby blond

And under the swaying tree
I go mitching time
From time to time
And think about all kinds of mysteries

Tell me what keeps us pushing on
Who keeps us singling along
Why does the better way
Have such a fine line

And did Noah sail the arch
With no stone left unturned
Why do my loved ones get
All my baggage and bones

Heaven knows how much I love you
My heart beats quicker
As a candlelight flicker
Makes you a halo
Of baby blond

But heaven knows how much I love you
My heart beats quicker
And candlelight flicker
Makes you a halo
Of baby blond
Track Name: Stardust
You woke in the abstract, the momentary
Where illusions fall
The faint light now blinding brightly above it all

Letting go was the way
Now you can feel it when they say
That we are all stardust from an ancient story
Beyond King and Queen
Stardust from an ancient story
In a waking dream

Like the big blue
Life’s ride
Of calm and stormy
Roll for roll
But Inside detaching slowly
From its control

Letting go was the way
Now you can feel it when they say
That we are all stardust from an ancient story
Beyond King and Queen
Stardust from an ancient story
In a waking dream

And is our time spent absorbing only
The shade of the sun
Blocked out from a finer glory
United as one

Letting go was the way
Now you can feel it when they say
That we are all stardust from an ancient story
Beyond King and Queen
Stardust from an ancient story
In a waking dream
Track Name: Truth in your heart
Tired of waking up outside yourself
And none of the distractions help
You know that it’s come time
To break free from your mind
Truth is in your heart
As it’s been from the start

Heaven and earth in time
Brought song to your rhyme
To keep you safe and sound
When darkness comes around
Truth is in your heart
As it’s been from the start

Down to the core
Where it never is lonely
Fear no more in the one and only

Hypnosing times
Harder to see the line
As further goes the mile
That leads to all things wild
Truth is in your heart
As it’s been from the start

Down to the core
Where it never is lonely
Fear no more in the one and only

One of a kind
You and the stars have always been aligned
No they can’t make you blind
Never doubt that one day you will find
Truth in your heart
As it’s been from the start
Track Name: Fable
There’s such little time
And so many things to find
Humility sleeps with our very peace of mind
Reaching for the sun
Easier said than done
What is it that keeps us from finding the love inside?

Is it all for the house on the hill
Just the thrill of the ride
Lost to desire
While destiny is longing to shine
Fire burning low
Following it’s glow
Because you know the remedy
Is back to the flame inside

The star in the fable
Come sing out your rhyme
Send it up on the wings of the angels
Now is the time

You that take solace in riches
And build the empires
Heavy the crown must lay
With all of that power
Is dignity just for you
You and the chosen few
No something is awakening
Something is on the rise

The star in the fable
Come sing out your rhyme
Send it up on the wings of the angels
Now is the time
Track Name: Million to one
Everybody’s swaying everyone’s outside
So alive
Spirits are high and we’re feeling good just like we should

Not a cloud in the sky but the bright yellow sun
Days like these are a million to one

Out of the blue the blue nowhere
Without a care
I hear a mouth harp and whistle play the score of hard times no more

Not a cloud in the sky but the bright yellow sun
Days like these are a million to one
No one racing
Just everybody swaying in time

Tall is the tree line that leads to home
Silently alone
I greet the street that I barely know so maybe friendship sow

Not a cloud in the sky but the bright yellow sun
Days like these are a million to one
No one racing
Just everybody swaying in time

I shut the door undress lay down
With my smile and crown
To have seen a day through a child’s eyes
Filled me full of surprise

Not a cloud in the sky but the bright yellow sun
Days like these are a million to one

And now the rain comes to break in the night
While down below the streets alive
But I’m off to dream
And I’ll slip beneath this time line
Track Name: Hairpin
There’s a stone in my shoe
And I’ve had quite a few
The party’s long over
The walk ’s knocked me sober
I see you at the hairpin
Dancing in a drain with the moon

I stop dead in my tracks
And crouch hunker low
There’s two lights ‘round you dancing
My heart’s quick time marching
I see you at the hairpin
Dancing in a drain with the moon

Deep root notes on a bass baritone
Shake the leaves where I’m standing
Rain drops abandon
I see you at the hairpin
Dancing in a drain with the moon

There’s mornings I don’t even wanna tie my laces
I know my walking be outta time
Tonight will end I know
Just pray tomorrow won’t blow
Ill wind that squanders the light

There’s a stone in my shoe
And I’ve had quite a few
The party’s long over
The walk ’s knocked me sober
I see you at the hairpin
Dancing in a drain with the moon

There’s mornings I don’t even wanna tie my laces
I know my walking be outta time
Tonight will end I know
I pray tomorrow won’t blow
The ill wind that squanders the light

Cause there’s a stone in my shoe
I gotta stone in my shoe
There’s a stone in my shoe
Track Name: There'll come Spring
Not long ago
Everything was gold
Yeah everything breathed gently

But oh of late
I can’t relate
And troubles seem to be a plenty

I’m all in my head
I’m turning in bed
And I can’t seem to make myself steady

So I throw my arms up to the King
Knowing things they’ll turn around
There’ ll come Spring
If I turn the way of my will back to yours

And oh come on
I’m here in song
And the absence of you defeats me
Eclipsed is the light
And there’s always a fight
Just to see things more clearly
I guess some get strong
And some pass on
Having never really known peace really

So I throw up my arms up to the King
Knowing things they’ll turn around
There’ll come Spring
I turn the way of my will back to yours
I turn the way of my will back to yours
Track Name: Burdett ballad
Restless heart trace singing stream
Dark of night find lucid dream
Tower block kiss pink cherry wild
Bravery lead the brand new child
Each new sun the soul greets alone
Silence swells beyond flesh and bone
All we fail to say and realise
Each freedom born bears no disguise

And what have we lost
What have we become
What have we lost
Who will we be when our race is run

Meadow gold born to sun and rain
Seasons change but the goal remains the same
One last dance and chance for the heart to be
The light of man and not the root of greed
Gentle ways that ask of nothing in return
Just to pray and only hope to learn
Amazing grace and space in place of time
A mother’s love is the bell with the sweetest chime

And what have we lost
Ya what have we become
What have we lost
And who will we be when our race is run

Restless heart trance singing stream
Dark of night find lucid dream
Tower block kiss pink cherry wild
Bravery lead the brand new child
Track Name: If only for a day
If only for a day we take away
The need to be the bigger one
Face the fear and carry on
Just maybe we can grow
To know the knowing of the word
The river song the whistling bird

I wonder oh how would it be
To be more than just the bird and the bee
With a change of heart and mind

Do we no longer dream our dream
Will the pride of progress that shapes our way
Ever cease to be and rue the day
Oh our heart song
Where’s it gone
Was the cynics word so sharp for you
That one day the flock convinced you

I wonder oh how would it be
To be more than just the bird and the bee
With a change of heart and mind

So how was it run, your lifetime
Was it just round and round and round the sun
Or when seeing something wrong
You’d search so long
To find a way to lend a hand
Before the hour glass lost all sand

I wonder oh how would it be
To be more than just the bird and the bee
With a change of heart and mind
