Lake Song 03:05
Oh water wash me clean Cool my angering heart Take me to the place I know The centre of the start. Oh water guide my hand Show me where to go I’ve lost my way in too many dreams Is this how it feels to grow? Oh water open my eyes I’m afraid of what I will see What lives in me and all of us Teach me what it means to be free Oh water still my mind These storms are far too strong I feel I’ve nothing to hang on to This road feels far too long. Oh water wash me clean Cool my angering heart Take me to the place I know The centre of the start. Oh water set me free Oh water set me free

Don't Worry 04:25
Don’t worry my dear Please don’t worry yourself Don’t worry my dear Please don’t worry yourself Take courage and know You’re held Don’t worry my love Please don’t worry your heart Don’t worry my love Please don’t worry your heart Just breathe and know You’re safe Worry not, worry not The sun hasn’t gone Worry not, worry not It’s sleeping behind the clouds Don’t worry my sweet Please don’t worry your soul Don’t worry my sweet Please don’t worry your soul Let me hold you and know I’m here Worry not, worry not The sun hasn’t gone Worry not, worry not It’s sleeping behind the clouds

Blue sky, shadows on the wall A breeze blows and I know We’ll be alright Clear eyes still shine bright for you My feet and I know We’ll be alright Alright or happy even Quite bright or brilliant even Tonight we’re smiling even Though we feel we’re not allowed To say how we feel out loud I’ll say it now We’ll be more than alright Bicycles Into cold water we fall We shiver and I know We’ll be alright Rainclouds Long mornings spent in bed Drops are pouring and they say We’ll be alright Alright or happy even Quite bright or brilliant even Tonight we’re smiling even Though we feel we’re not allowed To say how we feel out loud I’ll say it now We are more than alright We’re happy even Quite bright, we’re brilliant even Tonight we’re smiling even Though we feel we’re not allowed To say how we feel out loud I’ll say it now We are more than alright I say That life is for today Who knows What will happen on the way. Alright We’ll be more than alright Alright We are more than alright

Home 05:05
I laid my feet on moving ground I laid my head on moving clouds I laid my eyes on the world rushing by And I keep moving on These roots I have grow everywhere Though I yearned for just one plot A family in every place I’ve been To warm me when I feel lost And I keep moving on And I keep moving on You search for what you cannot hold A feeling that aches the heart A long life of searching for what you call home And you keep moving on You ask each day what you’re looking for Unable to answer yourself Like smoke through your fingers it slips away The place you are longing for And you keep moving on You keep moving on What we ask, we already know What we seek has already been shown What we long to hear has already been told Our eyes have looked on so many shores We’ve searched from sea to sky Yet what we’ve wanted all along Has been with us all this time Home is where we are Home is everywhere we are.

My Love 03:42
Your arms must ache my love You’ve caught me in so many falls You must feel weary my love You’ve held me through so many storms And if you’ll let me Then I will catch you too And for as long as you’ll let me I’d like to love you My heart feels full my love With my hand resting in yours I know there’s joy my love It won’t be long till then And if you’ll let me Then I will make you smile And for as long as you’ll let me I’d like to love you.

Weight 02:43
Take this weight off my chest It weighs heavy on my heart See that bridge? It broke And all this rubble weighs me down. Take this cloud out of my mind And the storms out of my head See that bridge? It broke And this fever makes me cold Take this cloak off my head It weighs heavy on my back See that bridge? It broke And darkness follows me down the track I’m but one, with just two hands It’ll take me oh so long See that bridge to my heart? It fell and crumbled to the ground Take this weight off my chest It weighs heavy on my heart See that bridge? It broke And all this rubble weighs me down.

Can’t shake these rainclouds Chasing my tail Lights in the sky dancing, tumbling over Headstrong in blinkering my eyes Only to find There’s nowhere else to run Hiding in passageways and shadows at night time They frighten me when I see the battle ground gives way beneath my feet Only to find there’s just one way to fall What demons we hide in the aching tides of our tired vanity The pretty little girl they turned to stone Cold fear when we see our white flags are burning out our strength No courage and we flee Only to find There’s nowhere else to run What demons we hide in the aching tides of our tired vanity How can we find, when we’re running blind A taste of clarity There’s light and love and life yet Through pain and fear and darkness yet There’s time and truth and courage yet To meet our fear and darkness yet There’s light and love and life yet There’s light and love and life yet.

Prayer 03:52
May old wounds be healed May our scars be soothed May we learn to love what we’d rather throw away And see beauty in our broken souls. May our eyes be bright May living not always be a fight May we find our fire, May it show us our way And the beauty in our broken souls We are learning day by day Through all we’d like to throw away We are learning day by day May our hearts be soft May we know that we do not know May we lay down the baggage we no longer need And see beauty in our broken souls. May we grow old and wise May our feet stay on the earth And when the time has come for us to say our last goodbyes We’ll see beauty in our broken souls. We are learning day by day Through all we’d like to throw away We are learning day by day Through all we’d like to throw away We are learning day by day May old wounds be healed May our scars be soothed May we lay down the baggage we no longer need And see beauty in our broken souls There is beauty in our broken souls We’ll see beauty in our broken souls.

about

For the first time in my musical life, I have followed my instincts without restriction, without thought for the "market" or what I think people might want to hear or see these days. I wrote these songs after a five year songwriting hiatus and a lot of personal digging in parts of myself that I was afraid to see in the past. So this album is not an arrival at a destination, but rather a map of the path I am on - where I have been and what I have found along the way.
Thank you for listening, and thank you to everyone who has helped me make this a reality. These songs come straight from the heart, and I hope they connect with yours.
