Track Name: Midight wine
Have you been searching?
‘Cause I’ve been waiting for life
To catch us up
Sneak on in and wake up my mind
And your direction
Has wound its way into me
So I’ll float near by
Rambling on in the back of your mind

So I say cast your fears away
Walk on the other side of nowhere
My heart could stand the test of time
So I say you and me lets drink
The midnight wine

And as the sunlight
Chases the shadows around
I’ll rest my eyes
Sneak on in and wake up my mind
To the moment
Of every waking dream
I’ll stand a while
Till I start to smile

So I say cast your fears away
Walk on the other side of nowhere
My heart could stand the test of time
So I say you and me lets drink
The midnight wine

And as the moonlight
Finds its way through the night
I’ll sleep a while
Sneak on out and chase through my mind
And if it rains down
I’ll be content with the rain
Then it might seem fun
To go out in the sun

So I say cast your fears away
Walk on the other side of nowhere
My heart could stand the test of time
So I say you and me lets drink
The midnight wine
Track Name: Where I lay
Why don’t you send
A letter to your friend?
And to your soul be true
‘Cause time can be so cruel
And time is your best friend
When shadows can’t pretend
And since your feeling high
Reach up through your mind

Seven days
A lifetime away
Seconds fade
Into the grey
Of night
Of day
And in between
Is where I lay

So where’s your plan
And do you feel this land
Beneath your feet down low
The mysteries it can show
So tread your path any time
Make sure you’re feeling fine
I’ll be there all the while
Be sure to where a smile

Seven days
A lifetime away
Seconds fade
Into the grey
Of night
Of day
And in between
Is where I lay

I’ve heard a picture cry
A verse that breathed a sigh
And fortunes told by hand
Of footprints in the sand
But meanwhile you see
A faded trace of me
And faced with times big scheme
One big unbroken dream

Seven days
A lifetime away
Seconds fade
Into the grey
Of night
Of day
And in between
Is where I lay
Track Name: Wake up lullabye
Some want to wake up
In a city it's true
Although the sky is dark
It's watching you
Before you sit back
Behind those eyes
Just spare the moment
Breathe in your time

Born listener
Wonder it through
Take yourself away from
Your soul is true
One day now
Sooner than you think
You'll wake up
In a lullaby

Some try to wake up
On the right side of bed
And fall into the
Superstitious head
My friend he wakes up
With a tune in mind
So Count your fortunes
We so rarely find

Born listener
Wonder it through
Take yourself away from
Your soul is true
One day now
Sooner than you think
You'll wake up
In a lullaby

I'm bound to wake up
Falling back through the cloud
Dreaming again,
Watching for the break of dawn
And as I gaze
Through these ancient panes
The moon awaits
Calling through The midnight haze
I'd like to see
One last thing today
Then fall away
Wash into the dream of a night
I'll keep on moving
Round and round this way

Born listener
Wonder it through
Take yourself away from
Your soul is true
One day now
Sooner than you think
You'll wake up
In a lullaby
Track Name: Ride
How come you seek my intention?
How come you read into my eyes?
How long in this psychic adventure?
Am I to give all that I can hide?

‘Cause your superstition is a stranger to me
I have been weary, but the dark side
Is the other half of me

Just pack your spirit
Just take a walk and let it ride

Don't call that card for the future
Runestone don't say that all is bad
Why can't you tell me bout the weather
Forecast my journey into now

‘Cause your superstition is a stranger to me
I have been weary, but the dark side
Is the other half of me

Just pack your spirit
Just take a walk and let it ride

Crystal ball don't shy now
Cloud your space and tell me mine
Treat my subconscious well now
‘Cause I don't know exactly what you'll find

‘Cause your superstition is a stranger to me
I have been weary, but the dark side
Is the other half of me

Just pack your spirit
Just take a walk and let it ride
Track Name: Snowflake
Take no notice what I say
Winter is on its way
Looking for the pale sunlight
Orion’s high tonight

Walk on
Fall down
Walk in walk out
It’s all about the snowflake

Be it for the driving rain
Would the seasons wash and drain
Into fountains in our lives
I’m not alone to wonder why

Walk on
Fall down
Walk in walk out
It’s all about the snowflake

Shining through the ebony
Lie the stars of destiny
And way beyond the mountain tall
A snowflake waits to fall

Walk on
Fall down
Walk in walk out
It’s all about the snowflake

Last night I went to bed
Bear in mind what I’ve said
Could a dream be for my sake?
Could it snow before I awake?

Walk on
Fall down
Walk in walk out
It’s all about the snowflake
Track Name: Tides
Diana the moon
Is looking tonight
The clouds of my conscious
Are clear
And who can play this game
Of runaround
I’m talking 'bout moon beams
Colours of

Somewhere Different
Within your mind
We rise and fall
With the Gaining Tides

The wave of my fortune
Has led me to here
I've picked up some sand on the way
And as for the blue skies
They're in my head
I'll save them for later

Maybe tomorrow holds your
Different ride
Take a while
Walk outside
Something’s Different
Within our minds
We rise and fall
With the Gaining Tides

And clear out your worried mind
Cos the time is drifting on by
So pick up your worries and smile
I do hope you stay for a While

Been walking for hours
And something is wrong
In my path stands a
Change of direction
And I'll choose the road
Less travelled by them
In the hope of some Freedom

Valleys to throw your thoughts down
Take a while
Look around
Breathe
Something’s Different
Within our minds
We rise and fall
With the Gaining Tides

And now I can sit here
And take it all in
The past and the future meet now
And as for the dreams
They'll still come around
To knock on my door
And follow me under

This life
Don't try
Just keep your head
Wonder why
Something’s Different
Within our minds
We rise and fall
With the Gaining Tides
Track Name: What it all boils down to
Well I don't care for a worried mind
If you want to hide yourself
We all have are own space it time
Choose people all around you
Pick it up
Turn around
Don't throw it away call it back for another day

What it all boils down to

Well I've met people who understand
That if your mind is free
You can travel on the breeze across this land
Of season, frosted sunlight
Take a breath
Look around
Watch the time go slow in your minds eye

What it all boils down to

Take it for granted or taking our time
I can see clearly my life is in rhyme
Talk on a Thursday
Well I nearly froze
Friday the fog clears what it's down to who knows

Well I've flown in an airplane
Cross kingdoms of old
Don't forget to look down my friend
‘Cause the earth maybe where you make your fall
Four seasons rest on time
Pick it up turn around
Don't throw it away
‘Cause you live here anyway

What it all boils down to
is the space around you
Track Name: Walkaway
See the fog roll in
Cross the bay
I see her house from here
It’s not that far away
I’m walking down through
Foreign soil
I take my time through this
Unfamiliar mortal coil

And if you’d care to sit right back
In time you’ll figure out where you’ve been at
And it would take forever more
For me to say
Walk away

Do you think it’s time?
Do you think it’s right?
Do you think it’s wrong?
For me to
Burn so bright
And would you say I was on your side
I’m fairly sure by now
This ways right

And if you’d care to sit right back
In time you’ll figure out where you’ve been at
And it would take forever more
For me to say
Walk away

It sure is high outside
The roof is tall
And since you’re passing by
Please don’t fall
And if you stumble over
Leaves of green
Be sure to laugh away
All you’ve seen

And if you’d care to sit right back
In time you’ll figure out where you’ve been at
And it would take forever more
For me to say
Walk away

It sure is peaceful here
By the sea
If only distant friends
Could be here with me
But then we share the days
Long and slow
At least we share the nights
And wherever the stars will go

And if you’d care to sit right back
In time you’ll figure out where you’ve been at
And it would take forever more
For me to say
Walk away
Track Name: A spell in mind
She's into magic
And all kinds of tragic emotions
She knows we tangle
With all kinds of angles
To live around here
But knowing two sides
To every equation will chase you
Beware your wishes
‘Cause they might come back to haunt you

Right down in the bottom
Deep down
I guess you've got a spell in mind

She's bored with preachers
And all kinds of teachers are wasted
She draws her powers
From all kinds of flowers around here
And if your in two minds
To mess with the space that surrounds you
Don't cross the woman
With the spider web as a tattoo

Right down in the bottom
Deep down
I guess you've got a spell in mind

She says she's lived here
For more than a lifetime before you
She's seen the crossroads
The dark side to all those feelings
And if you think you could
Just walk into her meditation
Look for the shadow
In the fire of her celebration

Right down in the bottom
Deep down
I guess you've got a spell in mind

Don't say
I didn't warn you
Deep down
There's a spell within you
Track Name: You
My friend I can see you're down
Took the wrong turn
And now you’re spinning around
I will
Break your fall
In time
I will the future to strengthen your past
And keep the memories
Of the things that don't last
All my
Waking hours
I'll find

I wonder if I could
Change your mind
It wouldn't be my kind of
Sailboat ride
Coincidence follows us
Down the line
But Better still
Know we shared some time

As you figure out enduring the strain
Take your dream
And before you follow the crowds
I will,
Lend my ear
Again
To wake the feeling of feeling o.k.
To break the tangles
Of life in your way
We walk
Through these worlds
To see

I wonder if I could
Change your mind
It wouldn't be my kind of
Sailboat ride
Coincidence follows us
Down the line
But Better still
Know we shared some time

My Friend you have dug into me
Causing ripples to take me
To lands I've not seen
I will
Call on you
In Time
And while I'm waiting for life to unfold
And trying to keep all the memories of old
I wish
You were here
With me

I wonder if I could
Change your mind
It wouldn't be my kind of
Sailboat ride
Coincidence follows us
Down the line
But Better still
Know we shared some time
Track Name: Leash
Winter has lost the road
Down and out in the cold
Like the man
In the sun
With a long forgotten land

Oceans rise up for me
My name is man
Like the stars
In the night
Unfamiliar to this land

Many roamed through forests wild
A long time ago
Now the sun
Heats the ground
Like the fire in our eyes

Choke the land, an ancient race
And call it back for more
Cut the leash
Call no more
And let it live its waking days
Track Name: Embers
Don’t take my fire
And run away
To burn my walls down
Up in flames
Chain of friends gather round
The time is taken
So don’t you frown

Photograph
Make still my past
Stir the embers
Of long burnt wax
The candles flame
Has burnt away
And still it warms
The me of today

A starry sky
Falls tonight
A traveler breaks
His silent flight
And journeys back
To be with friends
Just like so long ago back then

Time
Embers
Track Name: Love to save you
I hope your getting
All your betting on life
Or are you searching for something
That’s lurking inside?

Maybe you'll get back to me later
The door is open
You know I'd love to save you
From troubled times
When nothing goes quite right

I will listen
If you speak of what you know
I want to wake up
And remember what I've been shown

Maybe you'll get back to me later
The door is open
You know I'd love to save you
From troubled times
When nothing goes quite right

Are you dreaming
Of something that’s seeming so real?
Or are you finding
The pressures of winding this wheel?

I'd love to save you

Maybe you'll get back to me later
The door is open
You know I'd love to save you
From troubled times
When nothing goes quite right
