about

My first solo album. Written with the help of Paul Tonner, but performed and recorded entirely by myself with whatever instruments were lying around the house, or that I could beg, borrow or steal from friends.

“…accomplished album which gives an insight into an intriguing musical talent…” The Skinny

Track Name: Atmospheric Drift
The ringing in my ears
Birdsong on the radio
Permanent dull frequencies
Make me ill at ease

I’m waiting for the sea
I’m longing for the sea

And spray from far horizons
Drowning out the sirens
Unsettled in this peace
Hush is no release

I’m waiting for the sea
I’m longing for the sea

I would fly for five thousand miles
Just to throw myself into the sea
Track Name: Come Around Again
He saw her in that simple dress she wore
With the child that should be his
Would it be so wrong to want some more?
An echo of her kiss

Things had changed so much since they last met
She missed him as they passed
Just another fish that slipped the net
His role had been recast

Not a path that we should follow
We are moving on upstream, unseen
It’s the only way we go
It’s a film that never screen, a pipe dream

Will we come around again?
Will we come around again?

Double talk and theories cloud his views
Solutions left unheard
Spitting blood and bile in every word
The darker side is stirred

Not a path that we should follow
We are moving on upstream, unseen
It’s the only way we go
It’s a film that never screen, a pipe dream

Will we come around again?
Will we come around?

Must delay the end at any cost
Excuse for standing still
Mentioning no names, all blame is lost
Now take the sleeping pill

Not a path that we should follow
We are moving on upstream, unseen
It’s the only way we go
It’s a film that never screen, a pipe dream

Will we come around again?
Will we come around again?
Track Name: Fault Lines
Living on this fault line
It’s the stuff that we can’t say
The cracks are appearing
Getting wider every day

And living on this fault line
Should be expecting nothing less
We paper all the cracks
And keep hoping for the best

Fault lines appear
And take what I hold dear
I don’t want to live here
With fault lines that I fear
Fault lines that I fear

Don’t quit on me now
Say that we still got some time
Who said life was easy
Living on this fault line

Fault lines appear
And take what I hold dear
I don’t want to live here
With fault lines that I fear
Fault lines that I fear

Don’t quit on me now
Say that we still got some time
Who said life was easy
Living on this fault line

Fault lines appear
And take what I hold dear
I don’t want to live here
With fault lines that I fear
Fault lines that I fear
Fault lines that I fear
Fault lines that I fear
Track Name: Summer Dance
For all our talk, there was no time
To cast our shadows, yours mixed with mine
And in the summer, before the fall
We danced together, we missed it all

Sleep is for the old, let’s not close our eyes
Sleep is for the old, times not to waste
Sleep is for the old, I called your name
We’ll dance again

I’m not so sure of what came to pass
Our summer love that breathed it’s last
The trees had turned and wind blew cold
We carried on through autumn gold

Sleep is for the old, let’s not close our eyes
Sleep is for the old, times not to waste
Sleep is for the old, I called your name
We’ll dance again

Spin away girl, spin away oh my love
Spin away girl, spin away oh my sweet love
Spin away girl, spin away oh my love
Spin away girl, spin away oh my sweet love

Winter came late, with a bitter frost
Ghosts of summer, still haunted us
Track Name: Hey! Slow Repeater
Hey! Slow repeater
All positions held
For only so long
Until an answer broke the chain
Bright light falls

Things manifested
Of dubious design
Caused concern
Then fears allayed
Coming up roses
Just damn peachy
Track Name: Helpless Little Ghosts
We can’t go back no more
Because we’ve come to far
Me and my three friends
One met an early end

But they don’t care
They just drive through the things that we have grown
No one else cares
If we lose the things we have known

Me and my three friends
One I had to mend

There will be no regrets
For the choices that I make
Three lives stand in my way
And three lives I will take

Me and my three friends
One I left to tend
Track Name: Freeman
Helpless little ghosts kept up my sleeve
So sorry that you’re here, it’s time to leave
You got lifted up, got left behind
Haunted shadows powerless and blind

Walking in the woods to taste the fear
That vital spark, most fun we had all year
Ended on my knees, I ended up downtrodden, soaked
Laughing like a pig

Slow to make amends, the guilty face
No reason for the mess inside this place
Not what I expected, not what I was waiting for
Running home to face my judgement
Track Name: Pray For Rain
As the water rushes in
(Stranded on the rocks)
It’s every coward for himself
(The captain broke the locks)

You should go to the fire
(For all the shit you pulled)
You should go to the fire
(For all the men you fooled)

And pray for rain

We’ll chase them down and burn them all
(Standing round the fire)
To boil the fat and claim the spoils
(Standing round the fire)

Heavy breathing, vacant eyes
(Watch the flames consume)
Water vapour, rising tides
(The cycle won’t resume)

So pray for rain
Track Name: Good As Gold
A boy with heart as good as gold
How I dreamed of letting go
Come back to me my love
Walk our house just like before

The rain it came from clearest skies
The moon was pale above me
The rain it came from bluest skies
Are there clouds my eyes can’t see?

For all this time I held your flag
And even though it weighed me down
I always turned to face the sun
It never let me dwell upon

The rain it came from clearest skies
The moon was pale above me
The rain it came from bluest skies
Are there clouds my eyes can’t see?

Come to me when I’m not strong
Show the love you used to
You’re a vow now set free
The single thing I cannot wield
Track Name: Buried
It’s been buried for four thousand years
There’s stories of a fierce embroil
It’s trying to teach, but just out of reach
It’s sleeping underneath the soil

Helping to steer the northern frontier
Foundation for the second wall
A modern rebirth from out of the wart
Deciphering the ancient scrawl

Ignore their lies
Avoid the truth
Embrace their power

What gave you the power, the tail with the sting
Controlling every little thing
Freezing you up, but knocking you dead
A butterfly pinned through the head

Ignore their lies
Avoid the truth
Embrace the power

Ignore their lies
Avoid the truth
Embrace the power

It’s been buried for four thousand years
There’s stories of a fierce embroil
It’s trying to teach, but just out of reach
It’s sleeping underneath the soil
Track Name: A Day Like Today
On a day like today
When we heard what we heard
We fished around for meaning
In every secret word

You heard, “Here goes nothing!”
And without a sound you went
A sweet smell of something
That still won’t pay the rent

The church bells are ringing
There’s sounds of something black
A sign of things to come
Problems along the track

A call from a broken friend
Distress caused delay
Words will fail us now
When we’ve got nothing to say

We’ll begin the chase
We’ll lose but we can’t win
We’ll begin the chase

We cannot reconcile
If you won’t see the light
We cannot make amends
If you don’t know what’s right

On a day like today
When we heard what we heard
We fished around for meaning
In every secret word
Track Name: Alone, Adrift
Moving in places so remote
You missed the letters that I wrote
Sailing in circles on the sea
It only means something to me

Spent so much time alone, adrift
I never felt the seismic shift
Beneath the stars my leaking ship
Could never let the feeling slip

Alone, adrift (forever we are)
Alone, adrift (forever we are)
Alone, adrift (distance too far)
Alone adrift (be my guiding star)

Washed up, ashore, an unknown coast
I miss the ones that I love most
Now throw yourself into the sea
The tide will carry you to me

Alone, adrift (forever we are)
Alone, adrift (forever we are)
Alone, adrift (distance too far)
Alone adrift (be my guiding star)
