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
