01. Last Leaf

Mayflower blossoming out on the tree

Warm wind up from the south

Dragonfly hovering over the stream

Soft words which come from your mouth

Silent the hooves of the white horses ride

Glistening rivers of sand

Slow gentle whispers of retreating tide

Salt in the palm of your hand

Evergreen forcing it's way through the snow

Last leaf departs with a sigh

Land lies preparing itself for rebirth

Sweet love of life in your eye

 

 

02. Between the Lines

You’re an open book,

And you are the stories hidden between the words
You’re a melody,

And you are the poetry written in each verse
You’re a work of art,

And you are the only one to leave your mark
You’re a part of me

We’re the rain falling down
We’re a river running out
Flowing, slowly, falling, hold me
Won’t you, now
You’re the early morning light
You’re what keeps me up at night 
You’re the meaning I find
When I read between the lines

You’re a diary,

And you are the secrets whispered by the trees
You’re a burning flame,

And you are the spark that catches on the breeze
You’re a harmony,

And you are the notes that fit so perfectly
You’re a part of me

03. Brave Spirit


An old man sat by a window
On his knee was a little girl no more than five
In his hand he held a worn and faded photograph
That he looked at with a spark and a tear in his eye

 

The girl said ‘Grandpa, who’s that pretty lady,
And why does her old picture make you cry?’
He looked into her blue eyes wide with wonder
And said ‘I wish she could’ve been here to see your smile’

 

She had a Kind heart, fierce mind, brave spirit
There the things I saw in her and now I see in you
Whatever lies ahead, don’t you fear it
For they’re the only things you need to see you through

 

A soldier’s wife with her heart broken
The Friday morning post brought the news
So she bowed her head to pray as the heavens opened
She’d never believed but now she’d nothing to lose

 

Give me a kind heart, fierce mind, brave spirit
And the courage to open my heart and let him go
That’s my prayer to you if you can hear it
Cuz I don’t think I can do this on my own

 

I can still see Mamma kneeling down before me
Holding tightly to my tiny hand
She said ‘I know they’ve taken Daddy from us way too soon
But there’s something I need you to understand...

 

You have a kind heart, a fierce mind, brave spirit
There the words he said to me, now I’m telling you
Kind heart, fierce mind, brave spirit
There the only things you need to see you through...

04. Winds of Change

Hand on heart, heart on the line

We've both tried but we're out of time

Close your eyes, run and hide

We'll take shelter as our souls unwind

I could have loved you if you'd shown me how

But you said that moving on is for the best

The winds of change are growing colder now

As they take away what little I have left

Turn to face separate ways

Standing in the ashes of a love we couldn't save

Years go by, season's fly

Fragile like an autumn leaf, I fall every time

I could have loved you if you'd shown me how

But you said that moving on is for the best

The winds of change are growing colder now

As they take away what little I have left

Hand on heart, heart on the line

We've both tried but we're out of time

05. Mine to Call

Maybe we were never meant to be

Maybe you were never mine to find

But that just don't make sense to me

When you're always on my mind

I think of you and I'm not meant to

But I know your face by heart

And how am I supposed to forget you,

When I don't know where to start?

Inside my head I can see it all

And I've kissed your lips a thousand times or more

And I try to stay grounded

Cuz I know how quickly I fall

And I'm terrified of losing

What isn't even mine to call

You're never gonna see me looking over

But I could stare at you for years

And when you look back over your shoulder

I know you won;t see me through the tears

And I don't know if you're the same

But there's so much I'll never say

And there's no winners in this game

I can feel you slip away

Inside my head I can see it all

And I've kissed your lips a thousand times or more

And I try to stay grounded

Cuz I know how quickly I fall

And I'm terrified of losing

What isn't even mine to call

06. The Secret Gardener

Solitary man bending to the soil

What harvest will he bring? The fruit will never spoil

Come to autumn town, enter on your own

Drink in all the hues, take in all the tones

Every note planted with care

To reap the melodies

Each word nurtured shares a story like a tree

To the sadness with no choice

Transparent with the pain

He gives a quiet voice

He helps it live again

Every note planted with care

To reap the melodies

Each word light enough to carry on the breeze

Leaves are falling (leaves are falling)

I'm leaving autumn town

Leaves are falling (and I'm leaving)

I'm leaving autumn town

 

01. Conway and Loretta

Some people will make you laugh and others make you cry
Some folk go really well together just like you and I
Some friends are with you 'til the end while others come and go
Some folk you aint too sure about, and others you just know

And there are many people in this big old crazy life
But there are just a few of them who really fit just right 

Those like Gram and Emmy-Lou, and Dolly, and Kenny too
They make magic, when they strike a tune
Cuz two is always better, just ask Conway and Loretta
Or take a look at Jonny Cash and June
And there's something about spending time with you
Makes me think someday soon
You and I will be great too

Some folks will really dig your quirks, and others they won't get 'em
Some'll take you for a merry ride, if you let 'em
But things are always easy when it comes to you and I
For you hold on to my ankles while my head's up in the sky

And there are many people in this big old crazy life
But there are just a few of them who really fit just right 

Those like Gram and Emmy-Lou, and Dolly, and Kenny too
They make magic, when they strike a tune
Cuz two is always better, just ask Conway and Loretta
Or take a look at Jonny Cash and June
And there's something about spending time with you
Makes me think someday soon
You and I will be great too

 

02. Until You Stop Me

I wish I had an ounce of willpower to send you on your way

But instead I hear my mouth a-talking, asking you to stay

And I'm sensing no hesitation so I guess you feel the same

We're both a victim of temptation with only ourselves to blame

And Oh you can try your best to kid yourself that

No there's nothing going on...

You've been giving me the eyes lately, the green light for the chase

You can try, you can deny it baby, it's written all over your face

And I know that you are lonely darlin', I can see how much you what me

And I'll hold you tight until the morning if you tell me that's what you need

And Oh you can try your best to kid yourself that

There's really nothing going on

The trouble is we're on our own now darlin

And while it isn't right it can't be wrong

Give me just a single night with you

Just a single night to prove what I'm feeling isn't true

Pour me another whiskey on the rocks

Tell me what you're dreaming of

I'll go on until you stop me

And I think that you are quite mistaken if it's innocence you plead

Cuz your hands were crafted by the devil as you keep me on my knees

And Oh you can try your best to kid yourself that

There's really nothing going on

The trouble is we're on a roll now darlin'

And while it isn't right it can't be wrong

Give me just a single night with you

Just a single night to prove what I'm feeling isn't true

Pour me another glass of cheap wine

And I'll say that we are fine if you say that you are mine and

Pour me another whiskey on the rocks

Tell me what you're dreaming of

I'll go on until you stop me

03. Like The Moon

I talk to the moon every night
She tells me about the sun and all his light
And I speak of you
And the shadows in my mind you crawl in to

Cuz everyone has a chapter
They don't want to read aloud
But every night I read the pages that
I can't bear to tear out

And like the moon,
there's always a part of me hidden away
The part that I can't face,
In the cold, cold light of the day

I wandered alone tonight
Down every empty street we used to go
And I think of you
And the maelstrom you brought me down in to

I have an easy picture
And I sometimes paint myself into the scene
I am the sister moon
Although I know it's no more than a dream

Like the moon
There's always a part of me hidden away
The part that I can't face
In the cold light of the day

Caught between two calls
The one to stay and the one to go
Stuck inside these walls
Looking out to see the crescent moon
She's calling me
Sister moon, sister moon

04. Eyes To See

I know it’s often said

That things go wrong sometimes

I seem to spend my life

Looking around, when I might as well be blind

 

It’s here in front of me

You don’t need ears to hear, don’t need eyes to see

 

Thoughts spiral round my head

I can’t pick out the strands

All that I thought I knew is wrong

I’m a stranger to this land

 

It’s here in front of me

You don’t need ears to hear, don’t need eyes to see

05. The Thing With Broken Hearts

I don’t mind 
If you say my walls are too high for you to climb
I’ll be fine 
Behind these familiar defences
You’ll waste your time 
To find there’s nothing there but emptiness inside
You can try 
But I’m not making any promises

Cuz that’s the thing with broken hearts
They never go together like before they fell apart
And if I let you in 


You’re gonna have to promise not to break anything

I’ve been so long 
In the cold I hardly know how warmth feels anymore
The flames have gone
Oh but soon they’re gonna dance again 
I’m holding on 
Cuz it’s easier than knowing what lies just behind the door
The time has come 
For love and trust to have their chance again

But that’s the thing with broken hearts
They never go together like before they fell apart
And if I let you in 
You’re gonna have to promise not to break anything

That’s the thing with broken hearts
They never go together like before they fell apart
And if I let you in 
You’re gonna have to promise not to break , break...

That’s the thing with broken hearts
They never go together like before they fell apart
And if I let you in 
You’re gonna have to promise not to break me again

06. Rising Tide

I know you like the back of my hand
And I know you'll understand why I'm leaving
We both know this feeling


And you know me from the outside in
And here we are again wide open
Promises unspoken

Just like the moon as she kisses the stars goodnight
Our love will come back in time like the waves on a rising tide

I have tried to be a stranger to you
And you've tried too, we're failing
There's just too much left to say, and


We've got memories that mean the world
And although they hurt, I'm smiling
This won't be our last goodbye, and

Just like the moon as she kisses the stars goodnightOur love will come back in time like the waves on a rising tide

We don't know where this love is gonna go
Ebb and flow like the waves roll on
Like the moonlight on the water
It's beautiful, but never lasts too long

I'll be here when time is on our side
And you'll be mine, just fallin'
Maybe then we'll have it all, and

Just like the moon as she kisses the stars goodnightOur love will come back in time like the waves on a rising tide

07. Close The Door

Guess I’ve never felt so restless

To get some miles beneath my feet

You know it almost makes me breathless

To think of where we’ll be

 

It’s a shock to feel so helpless

When what I need is very small

And with the friends who are so selfless

We’ve got it all and more

 

Drain the pipes and put the out of office on

Throw the stress into the file marked ‘s’

 

Take a breath, take a step

Take my time

And close the door behind

 

Though I’ve heard the doubters say

We may be over the hill

We’ve only just begun the climb

So just enjoy the view, 

Cos we’re counting footsteps still

 

Drain the pipes and put the out of office on

Throw the stress into the file marked ‘s’

 

Take a breath, take a step

Take my time

And close the door behind

08. Remember When

Remember back when we watched movies on VHS
When you'd make your favourite playlist on a tape cassette
When you'd dial up for the internet
And Beyoncé wasn't famous yet
Oh I remember back when we first met

Remember when we'd stay up talking 'til 3am
When the credit on your phone went I'd call you back again
I remember when confectionary was bigger like it used to be
And everything seemed just perfect to me

Remember back when Snow Patrol did Chasing Cars
And we laid out 'til the morning light just counting stars
Remember when I still believed it every time you promised me
I would never be alone again
Oh do you remember when
Do you remember when

Remember back when there was nothing standing in our way
When summer seemed to last forever and a day
I'd drink whiskey, you'd smoke cigarettes, while we waited for the sun to set
And we swore we would always stay the same

Remember back when Snow Patrol did Chasing Cars
And we laid out 'til the morning light just counting stars
Remember when I still believed it every time you promised me
I would never be alone again
Oh do you remember when
Do you remember when

Remember when we didn't even think to doubt
Back when we believed we had it all worked out
Now you're a million miles away, though it feels like yesterday
And all we have is just a memory

Remember back when Snow Patrol did Chasing Cars
And we laid out 'til the morning light just counting stars
Remember when I still believed it every time you promised me
I would never be alone again
Oh do you remember when
Do you remember when

Oh do you remember when
Do you remember when

09. Shorthand

Lines of glasses on the window
Bending sunlight round their stems
Faded curtains hanging sadly
Lost thoughts and dusty hems

This old house won’t stand forever
Though it was here before we came
Torn paper and frayed carpets
But it somehow feels the same 

It doesn’t matter how much time goes by
You’ll always find
A chapter of my story tucked away insIde
These walls
They’ve seen mine crumble
And the dreams I built from nothing much take flight
It’s good to be back home tonight, home tonight

I felt the roughness of your hand in mine,
And suddenly I’m five years old
Holding tightly and looking up at you,
You led me safe across the road

It doesn’t matter how much older I get 
I still find
The memories they linger quietly inside
My mind
Full of stories of the times we had when I was just a child
It’s good to be back home tonight, home tonight

 

10. Hell Would Be An Easy Ride

Goodbye hurting
Goodbye pain
I hope I never have to 
See your face again

Goodbye lonely
You're on your own
And if you see me now you'd be surprised
Just how much I've grown 


Goodbye fear, farewell crying
So long pouring out my heart and soul
To find that you've stopped trying
I'm not afraid of the Devil
Trying to get me on his side
Cuz after you, Hell would be an easy ride

 

Goodbye guilty
I'm moving on
And if you think I'm coming back this way again
Then you're wrong

Goodbye empty
It's about time
That we went our separate ways again
Cuz you're no friend of mine

 

CHORUS

 

And you can't hold on to something when it's already gone
And you know I won't stay down for long, I'm moving on

 

Goodbye heartache
I'm done with you
Though in the time we spent together
I sure learned a thing or two

About what love is 
And what it aint
And how you only really know the blessing
When it's gone away

 

CHORUS

11. Parallel Lines

Railroad tracks and the other side of the road
So far apart but at the same time so close
Same direction, all the while, like parallel lines
Parallel lines, parallel lines

Two trees growing from the same ground
Reaching up for the light, but never reaching out
From the distance, two silhouettes, of parallel lines
From the distance, just silhouettes, of parallel lines

Worlds away but still near enough to see
We both opened up our hearts, and kept them out of reach
We're keeping our distance, side by side, like parallel lines
We're keeping our distance, side by side, like parallel lines
Parallel lines, parallel lines

 

New Strings, Old Guitars e.p
- Lyrics

01. Anybody Else But You

 

He’s got the blue sky in his eyes

When he says jump, I say how high

He can make my knees turn weak

He could be just perfect for me

If only he was anybody else but you

 

She’s got the moonlight in her hair

She says come over and I’m right there

Her loving means the world to me

She could be the woman of my wildest dreams

If only she was anybody else but you

We’ve been down this road before so many times

We just can’t seem to work it out, no matter how hard we try

She’s really just my kind

Oh I can’t get him off my mind

She forever leaves me wanting more

And he’s real difficult to ignore

If only she was anybody else but you

 

We’ve been down this road before so many times

We just can’t seem to work it out, no matter how hard we try

He’s got the sweetest smile

And I think about her all the while

We’ve really got it going on

Maybe she could be the one

If only she was anybody else but you

If only you were anybody else but you!

02. Where You're Standing Now

Just keep your head down

That's what they say

keep your chin up darlin'

Tomorrow is another day

But when every day's the same as all the others then

Maybe it's time for a change

You've never felt so weak, but

I know you've never been so strong

And you might be drowning now but know it won't be long

Give yourself the space to see

That where you're standing now is where you need to be, and

(chorus)

There's always light behind the clouds

Even after the whole damn sky falls down

And hiding right behind the doubts

Are all of the answers there just waiting to be found

You're not broken

You're not falling apart

You're just falling into place

And you'll be amazed

At the difference time makes

Let yourself be broken

And listen when it hurts

Cuz it's the times disguised as hell on earth

When you have the most to learn

And know when to keep on trying

And when its just

A bridge you need to burn

So many little choices

Like diamonds in your hand

All the doors that open

When you let the old ones slam

And give yourself the chance to see

That where you're standing now

is where you need to be

(Chorus repeat)

03. Faded Curtains

Lines of glasses on the window

Bending sunlight round their stems

Faded curtains hanging sadly

Lost thoughts and dusty hems

This old house won’t stand forever

Though it was here before we came

Torn paper and frayed carpets

But it somehow feels the same

It doesn’t matter how much time goes by

You’ll always find

A chapter of my story tucked away insde

These walls

They’ve seen mine crumble

And the dreams I built from nothing much take flight

It’s good to be back home tonight, home tonight

I felt the roughness of your hand in mine

And suddenly I’m five years old

Holding tightly and looking up at you

Led me safe across the road

It doesn’t matter how much older I get

I still find

The memories they linger quietly inside

My mind

Full of stories of the times we had when I was just a child

It’s good to be back home tonight, home tonight

04. Latin Song

You’re the guilty secret that I can’t get off my mind

And I know you feel it when I think of you at night

Try as you might even innocence wears thin

So turn down the lights, I’ll show you where to begin

Chorus

I’ve seen every shade of black,

I try to leave but the devil keeps on pulling me back

Oh darling won’t you come with me

Give into yourself and you’ll see

Temptation loves company

And you can’t hide, I can see through your disguise

And I know that smile as you undress me with your eyes

A fantasy gone way too far

You don’t want me and yet here we are

Repeat chorus

05. Midnight Wildflowers

He was just a small town boy

A young 19 years old

And she was shy of 17

With hair to match her heart of gold

He knew she was prettier

Than any girl he’d ever known

So later on when the band stopped playing

He asked to walk her home

Come with me now

Dance with me out across the moors

The scent of wildflowers

And my hand in yours

Falling in love was easy

Beneath the stars that night

And two years later to the day

She became his winter bride

And even when life’s grey mundane

Would start to take a toll

The two of them had such a love

Their hearts were never cold

Come with me now

Dance with me out across the moors

The scent of wildflowers

And my hand in yours

Oh they dreamed together

Under the moon

And though love may last forever

Life can be so cruel

Years gone by he sits beside

The love that shared their home

Cuz growing old together is

Not so easy on your own

And after church each Sunday

He’d rest a while by her side

Lay down wildflowers

And think about that night

Come with me now

Dance with me out across the moors

the scent of wildflowers

And my hand in yours

Come let me dream again

Of dancing with you across the moors

the scent of wildflowers

And my hand in yours

06. Skinny McGee

 

Fish in the sky, birds in the sea

Woke up this morning I was drunk like a bee

Locked the door but I found the key

Why don’t you wake up, Skinny McGee?

Skinny McGee, Skinny McGee

Why don’t you wake up and shake the tree

You’ve been sleeping since before the big freeze,

Why don’t you wake up Skinny McGee?

Went to the courthouse to lodge my plea

Couldn’t afford to pay the fee

Now I’m just rolling around like a pea

Why don’t you wake up Skinny McGee?

Chorus

07. Caledonia Again

Ain’t it funny, how a feeling so strong

Can come back when you thought it was all gone

Faded memory, you thought had disappeared

Come haunt you all so clear after so long

It happens when I hear that song

The wind in the trees, the roar of the fire

The sound of brand new strings on an old guitar

Takes me right back to that night

Whenever I hear Caledonia again

I think of you my friend

And as the years go by, I hear it playing from time to time

And you walk across my mind like an old ghost

And the words they say, I think about you all the time

And that’s more than just a line don’t you think so

And maybe we’ll never know

The wind in the trees, the roar of the fire

The sound of brand new strings on an old guitar

Takes me right back to that night

Whenever I hear Caledonia again

I think of you my friend

And as the years fade away, the memories are turning grey

You will never be a stranger and I’ll see you again one day

The wind in the trees, the roar of the fire

The sound of brand new strings on an old guitar

Takes me right back to that night

Whenever I hear Caledonia again

I think of you my friend

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

 

Lies

It’s not your hand I want to hold

It’s not your heart that captivates my soul

It’s not your smile that holds mine

It’s not you that I have looked so hard to find

 

I’m not the one that dreams of you

I’m not mesmerised by everything you do

I don’t believe each word you say

I’m not hypnotised by every move you make

 

I’m not trying not to fall, I don’t even care at all

And that’s a fact (and you should know that…)

 

I don’t miss you (like I used to)

I don’t want you all the time

I don’t keep you (like a secret)

In my sweetest dreams at night

I don’t need you, I don’t love you

I don’t picture every memory of you and me

And see you every time I close my eyes

And maybe you’d believe me If I weren’t telling you lies

 

It’s not the fire that burns inside

You’re not the moon above that moves this restless tide

It’s not my heart that’s yours to steal

It’s not your tenderness that I have longed to feel

I’m not trying not to fall, I don’t even care at all

And that’s a fact (and you should know that…)

 

I don’t miss you (like I used to)

I don’t want you all the time

I don’t keep you (like a secret)

In my sweetest dreams at night

I don’t need you, I don’t love you

I don’t picture every memory of you and me

And see you every time I close my eyes

And maybe you’d believe me If I weren’t telling you lies

Pacific Waves

 

We’re waves in motion

Flowing through these lives of ours

We’ll survive the deepest ocean

But drown in a sea of stars

 

We’re words unspoken

Melodies carried on the breeze

Promises and hearts wide open

And dreams too big to believe

 

Will you be my anchor

If I say I’ll be your lighthouse in the darkest night?

We’ll dance on golden shores

While the moon showers the sea with silver light

 

We’re rivers flowing

Leaves that fall to feed the ground

Embers that once burned still glowing

And clouds where silver linings are found

 

We’re a still horizon

Where every setting sun will burn

Below the skies the moon will rise in

And above tides forever on the turn

 

Will you be my anchor

If I say I’ll be your lighthouse in the darkest night?

We’ll dance on golden shores

While the moon showers the sea with silver light

Blood On My Hands

 

You were the best thing I ever had

But you didn’t know it, you didn’t know it

You were the only one I ever really loved

But I didn’t show it, I didn’t show it

 

Chorus

Here I go again, blaming everybody else

When the truth is deep down I just can’t forgive myself

I know what I’ve done, now our love is dying

I’ve got blood on my hands and I can’t hide it

 

I was the only one that you could ever trust

But I didn’t see it, I didn’t see it

And now I’m sorry but it’s not enough

And you don’t believe it, you don’t believe it

 

Chorus

 

Now I find myself lost and I don’t know what to do

Nothing I could say would change you feel,

I kick myself so hard for losing you

 

Chorus

The Bed We Made

 

I’ve heard the weatherman say there’s a storm brewing

He’s not wrong

I’ve seen those clouds in your eyes getting darker

For so long

 

Looks like it’s going on for heavy rain

Right now it’s sunny with a chance of a hurricane

 

You made the rules and I played, You made me renegade

Now we lie in the bed we made...

 

We knew that playing with matches and gasoline

Could go wrong

But still we’re drawn like a moth to the flame within

So strong

 

Oh we never meant for it to go this far

We tried not to let it hold But here we are

 

You wrote the rules for play, You let me win again

Now here we are

We have to lie in the bed we made 

Hold On ​

 

Every year at this time, the world takes to sliding

People like you and like me find new ways of hiding

Maybe you’ll unfold yourself like a fan

Open your wings like a butterfly can

 

I feel the water is thin How can it hold me? (Lean back and I'll be there for you)

I feel the weight pressing in It wants to enfold me (you’ll float if you trust to let go)

This is too much for me even to try

I’ll be here tomorrow, still right by your side

 

Hold on, hold on

 

This is not the first time today I’ve noticed my breathing

Counting every smallest intake Inside I’m screaming

I’ll push away all the latest debris

I can’t be sure that the mess isn’t me

 

Hold on Just hold on

Almost Mine

 

Where the stillness of the lake is like a mirror

As the sun sets on her shore each afternoon

Where the river weaves a ribbon of pure silver

And the wild flowers dance beneath the moon

You took my hand and there we walked together

And I fell for you like a raindrop from the sky

In the place where the mountains reach the heavens

And you were almost mine

 

Where the silence in the vale sings like a choir

And the evergreens stand tall against the breeze

Where the rushes bow their heads toward the mire

And the wind whispers secrets to the reeds

 

Where we lay down on the ground among the heather

And I fell for you like a needle from the pines

In the place where the mountains reach the heavens

And you were almost mine

 

Where the skylark sings a song about the summer

'cause in winter all it seems to do is rain

The years roll on and into one another

And I wish that I could see your face again

 

'cause I remember when a day felt like forever

And I fell for you like a falling star that night

In the place where the mountains reach the heavens

And you were almost mine

Running Out

 

There on the side, are two glasses of whiskey

One's empty

Here on the couch, I sit waiting for you to call me

And hold me

 

Can’t you see you’re that something on my mind

At the bottom of every bottle you’re all I’ll find

They say that time's a healer, there’s no doubt

I’m starting to see we’re running out

 

There on the walls, little pieces of your memory

Haunt me

Here in our bed, I will sleep if I remember how to

Without you

 

Chorus

 

Here in my head you will never be away from me Stay with me

Uncaged Bird

 

Little thing

You keep your mind untold

Your thoughts a rosebud yet to unfold

 

You still sing

Though others shout above

The small insistent notes of love

 

A pocket of night stars

No fear of cutting free

I swallowed down your spark

Now there’s a fire inside of me

 

Cast adrift

Yet tethered to the dream

You hollowed out a log to float downstream

 

Looking up

The cracked and broken sky

A cloud-filled pattern hits your eye

 

A pocket of night stars

No fear of cutting free

I swallowed down your spark

Now there’s a fire inside of me

 

Little thing

You keep your dreams untold

Your thoughts a rosebud yet to unfold

 

You still sing

Though others shout above

The small insistent notes of your love

Something

 

Yesterday I heard that song

I sang along with the radio

It took me back to you and that old guitar,

The summertime we felt so long ago

 

Something's have changed now, but I still say the same

And I’d go in a heartbeat back to that day

 

Remember how easily conversation flowed like wine from the bottle on the table that night

And our eyes said more than our words did

And even now when it’s all just a dreamlike memory, ships that passed in the night

Yeah I’m sure as hell there’d be something

 

You're married now, there’s a ring on your finger

Just like the one he gave to me

And time passed, and things changed, it don’t fade

The memory of how it could have been

 

Chorus

 

And if we passed on the street today, would you realise?

Turn around and give a second glance

And would you fly back in time to that night

Given half a chance

 

Something's changed now, but I still stay the same and I’d go in a heartbeat....

 

Chorus

Walking Barefoot

 

When every word you shape shrinks to nothing at all

When every step you take, runs the risk of a fall

When you’re hiding in the shade from the fear of doing wrong

Closing up your mouth so others cannot hear your song

With the walls around you blocking out the sky

You can’t see how to try

 

And you’re not broken, you’re just trying to feel complete

And you’re getting there, though sometimes it’s exhausting to believe

And when you can’t even see the wood for the trees

\Just keep walking through the forest In your bare feet

 

When the blindfold is removed the light can hurt your eyes

When you’re trying to be the you that others recognise

When you’re running from a thing that you can’t even describe

When the people all around mistake your flight for stupid pride

When your power to speak becomes a noiseless cry

You can’t see how to try

 

And you’re not broken, you’re just trying to feel complete

And you’re getting there, though sometimes it’s exhausting to believe

And when you can’t even see the wood for the trees

Just keep walking through the forest In your bare feet

 

Cos you're stronger than you think, more worthy than you feel

And you're more than you believe you are If only you could see ​

 

And you’re not broken, you’re just trying to feel complete

And you’re getting there, though sometimes it’s exhausting to believe

And when you can’t even see the wood for the trees

Just keep walking through the forestIn your bare feet 

Cos you’re stronger than you think

More worthy than you feel

And your fragile heart Is beautiful to me
