about

This is a collection of all live tracks, (recorded in my bedroom) I think are worthy of an album which I hope to record in a studio soon. All proceeds from the sale of this collection are going towards studio time and equipment such as new guitar strings etc. So if you like what you hear, consider buying this collection. Thanks

Track Name: A Long Way From Home
You tried to give, it all you had
Feels like your all, just made the world mad
You’re a long way from home
You’ll find your way back soon
But you give life, to those you meet
All the people that you see
Yeah, they’re a long way from home
they’ll find their way back soon
Don’t you quit, carving that path
it’s not of stone, but it’ll last
It’s not far from home
You’ll find your way back soon
Oooh…
We’re a long way from home
And we’ll find our way back soon…
A long way from home… We’ll find a way
Sometimes the walls they come crashing in
A chance to rebuild, grow a second skin
We’ll build a home
We’ll build a home for you
The lessons learned, in adversity
Teach us all, to cope purposely
I’m a long way from home
But I’ll find my way back soon
And if you fail, just look around
At the faces you’ve found
They’ve found their home
They’ve found a home in you
Track Name: Today (Acoustic)
If I was a bird, I would fly away
Take to the sky, don't let tomorrow replay.
If you could get high with me what would you say?
I know that you wouldn't even hesitate.

Quit your promises, they'll never be made.
Stick to your words or they'll eventually fade.
Understand, I wasn't born this way.
I'm just a symptom of society... Today.

Today, you let me win.
I don't know where I'd have been, without you there to comfort by my side.

Today, you made me feel,
I was part of something real.
Was all that warmth, just a figment in my mind?

Today, I wonder still, how is it I'm supposed to fill,
The void that you left uncovered and exposed?

Today, is just the start.
We all have to play a part.
I hope your will won't stray from where you are.

I won't let you fall apart, my friend.
I won't let you fall apart, not till the end.
Track Name: Saint-Béat (Demo)
Now there’s a place, that I could call home
Where I could live on, watch the world pass me by
Out in the distance, the trees, they wave in the light of the sun
I wish I could stay but, my journey has just begun

Here by the mountains, sheltered from it all
Timeless in beauty, through seasons and natures call
I will wait on, take it all in my stride
Someday I'll return, remember what peace feels like

Wind, quiet as the voice
Replaces the music of birds in my ear
Subtle changes it makes, in the wake of the memories we made along the way

Streams running clear, reflecting the faces of those I held dear,
Like life, waters run by, replacing our movements here year by year

Here by the mountains, sheltered from it all
Timeless in beauty, through seasons and natures call
I will wait on, take it all in my stride
Someday I'll return, remember what peace feels like

There was a place, that I thought was home
Where I would live on, watch the world pass me by
Out in the distance, my thoughts wonder out into the unknown
I wish I could stay but, my journey has just begun
Track Name: You Move Me (Live)
If I stay, would I watch our dreams fall away
Whilst the seams connecting us fray
The timing of your breath, whispers goodbye

Your tears, they form waves in my mind
As the years pass by I wouldn’t fight
The beating of my heart, it just don’t start

So move me, like sand in the hour glass
So teach me, how to be at home in this skin I belong
Don’t let me, fall between the cracks that I ignore
I’ve been your fool before

Waiting still, are lessons to help cure all my ills
Yet taste of sentiment is too real
Reminds me of those thoughts, I’d since forgot

With my last touch, all those moments I tried to judge
Dissipate with the fear and mistrust
I know you’re still there, somewhere…

So move me, like sand in the hour glass
So teach me, how to be at home in this skin I belong
Don’t let me, fall between the cracks that I ignore
I’ve been your fool before
Track Name: All There Is To Say (Live)
Why wait to hold your values high, when your life just seems to pass you by
I found another way inside my mind, just trust your instincts and you will find...

Ooh...

Found our way, found our way, found our way, found all there is to say

Ooh...

There's always someone waiting on their own, take their hand and bring them home.
You'll always be the one who is to blame, so take control, don't be the same.

Ooh...

Found our way, found our way, found our way, found all there is to say
Track Name: I'm Not Afraid (Live)
You think just a little different, yet I’m the one who appears distant
Sometimes I wish that I was more like you
One day we’ll be older and times like this won’t rest on our shoulders
But we must fight for a future to hold
And I’ll hold, yes I’ll hold for you

Because I’m not afraid, to hold my head up high
I’m not afraid, because I’m still alive
I’m not afraid, to understand the times
I’m not afraid, No I’m not afraid, I’m, not afraid

Even if our voices shake, and our muscles ache from the points we make
If we don’t stand, we’ll fall for anything
Don’t wait, don’t underestimate, the locus of our fate
We’re capable of changing everything
And we’ll change, we’ll change for you

Because we’re not afraid, to hold our head up high
We’re not afraid, because we’re still alive
We’re not afraid, to understand the times
We’re not afraid, No We’re not afraid, We’re, not afraid

I hope that now you’ll see, that you’re no more differ-ent than me
And all that effort spent on hate will resign
If words could change the world, what would you say to break the mould
Sometimes the truth can be too much to control
What would you say? What would you say to me?

Because I’m not afraid, to hold my head up high
I’m not afraid, because I’m still alive
I’m not afraid, to understand the times
I’m not afraid, No I’m not afraid, I’m, not afraid
Track Name: Let Me In (Time Waits For No One)
Why don't you let me in and I could be the one
Why don't you let me in and I could be the one...

I found life waiting for me, all you need is community
So, why don't you let me in and I could be the one
Why don't you let me in and I could be the one

Let me be the one...

We spend all our lives, rushing to the end,
Wasting time meant for memories for tyrants and thieves.
Build your community, don't let them see
Build your communities, don't let them see...

Let me be the one...

Why don't you let me in and I could be the one
Why don't you let me in and I could be the one...

Let me be the one...

Time waits for no one and that don't bring us down.

Don't bring us down.
Don't bring us, don't bring us down.
Track Name: Float Away (Live)
Let it all float away, let it all float away
Release it from your mind.
Let it all float away, let it all float away
Release it from your mind.

You always knew what it meant, to be free, you always knew what you meant to me.
You always knew what it meant to be free, you always knew what you meant to me.

Even though we'd fight, you'd learn and you'd expand.
Even for the parts of me you'll never understand.
We made it through the worst and the best of it, well I'll be damned.
You never walk away from those who try to lend their hand.

You always knew what it meant, to be free, you always knew what you meant to me.

Let it all float away, let it all float away
Release it from your mind.
Let it all float away, let it all float away
Release it from your mind.

You always knew what it meant, to be free, you always knew what you meant to me.
You always knew what it meant, to be free, you always knew what you meant to me.

We'd stare into the sky and watch our problems float away.
The struggle in our life carry no weight above today.
There's always someone better, worse or more adverse but not to you.
If only people knew exactly what they were to do.

But you always knew what it meant, to be free, I hope you knew what you meant to me.

Let it all float away, let it all float away
Release it from your mind.
Let it all float away, let it all float away
Release it from your mind.
Track Name: Words Unspoken (Live)
If you leave it up to us
You might stay and lose out on life because
There's nothing else

Don't you wander in your sleep
If you're still awake, forget the things that we'd agreed to make

There's a life out there, for the ones who care…
If your mind is open, follow the words unspoken

There's a life out there, for the ones who care…
If your mind is open, follow the words unspoken

You'll find love along the way, don't wait for me
Don't feel tied to anything, that you don't need

You'll find love along the way, don't wait for me
Don't feel tied to anything, that you don't need

Oooh…

In your head you always knew, that this day would come
Though one day it'll be me who has to choose

Sometimes you'll think upon
The times we spent, the moments left behind and what they meant

But there's a life out there, for the ones who care…
If your mind is open, follow the words unspoken

There's a life out there, for the ones who care…
If your mind is open, follow the words unspoken

You'll find love along the way, don't wait for me
Don't feel tied to anything, that you don't need

You'll find love along the way, don't wait for me
Don't feel tied to anything, that you don't need
Track Name: Save Me (Live)
Always watching, never trusting of the fire, the flames they burn so bright.
Always hoping, fear controlling my desires, my will recedes within.

Ooh...

Why don't you save me, why don't you save me from it all.
Why don't you save me, why don't you save me from the fall.
Why don't you save me, why don't you save me from the fall...

Well I have come too far, to lose my mind and leave it all behind.
I have come too far, to lose my mind and leave it all behind.
I have come too far, to lose my mind and leave it all behind.
I have come too far, to lose my mind and leave it all behind.

Why don't you save me, why don't you save me from it all.
Why don't you save me, why don't you save me from the fall.
Why don't you save me, why don't you save me from the fall.
Why don't you save me, why don't you save me from it all...

Well I have come too far, to lose my mind and leave it all behind.
I have come too far, to lose my mind and leave it all behind.
I have come too far, to lose my mind and leave it all behind.
I have come too far, to lose my mind and leave it all behind...

Always watching, never trusting of the fire, the flames they burn so bright.
They burn so bright...
Track Name: Not My Journey (Live)
I have found my peace
Amongst the birds and trees
I know that my dreams won’t fade…

I know that you’ll try
To break my will and high
But hatred won’t work here no more…

I will lend my hand
For the promises I made to you
I will never break them again.
You will find your way
I know your mind will stay true
This is not my journey it’s you
It’s you

The stars will always shine
Through all of space and time
But how much space is left here for me.

If you ask yourself
Was it worth my wealth
I know what the answer will be.
No.

You will find your way
I know your mind will stay true
This is not my journey it’s you
It’s you
Track Name: White Lies (Demo)
You called for a revolution
But all I see are white lies.
To change our situation
We have to change our minds.

I know we don't owe you anything
Except our time
But time is hard to find
When you've lost your backbone and spine.

White lies they're feeding our ignorance
And we don't mind
It's easy to forget the truth
When our comfort and lifestyle's on the line

White lies they're feeding our ignorance
And we don't mind
It's easy to forget the truth
When our comfort and lifestyle's on the line

I've looked upon the future
And I still see white lies
History will repeat us
If we don't open up and find

A common ground between all...
Our differences and faults
I know it's hard to forgive, forget
Everything we know

White lies they're feeding our ignorance
And we don't mind
It's easy to forget the truth
When our comfort and lifestyle's on the line
Track Name: Inequality (Live)
These lights they burn along the way, they burn along the way.
No doubts about the part they've played in someone else's game.
Lost their innocence to inequality, to inequality. Whilst they fight for the minority, for the minority.

Speak for those who have no voice.
Let their story be heard through the noise.
We won't make amends, through our decadence why are we so blind.
My actions misunderstood, for trying to be good, against it all...
(Would it matter anyway, does it matter anyway)

For the lights that have burned so bright, into the night where they lay eternally.

These lights they burn along the way, they burn along the way.
No doubts about the part they've played in someone else's game.
Lost their innocence to inequality, to inequality. Whilst they fight for the minority, for the minority.
Track Name: Don't Let Me Down (Live)
No no no, don't let me down from this height
No no no, for the very first time I feel alright… No,
No no, just let me learn for myself
No no no, don't let this time overwhelm.

You find life better when your alone
Just keep track of what you've done
I know our secrets aren't to blame
But we can't pretend things are the same… Oh

No no no, don't let me down
For the very first time I feel alright… despite your frown...
No no no, just keep yourself to yourself
No no no, well at least you've got your health…

You find life better when your alone
Just keep track of what you've done
I know our secrets aren't to blame
But we can't pretend things are the same… Oh

No no no, don't be unsound
There are pieces of us, that are needed to be found…
No no no, I may have overstepped the line
No no no, don't just tell me you are fine

You find life better when your alone
Just keep track of what you've done
I know our secrets aren't to blame
But we can't pretend things are the same… Oh

Who… are you
Who… are you
Who… are you

No no no, don't let me down from this height
No no no, for the very first time I feel alright… No,
No no, did you find what it was you're searching for
No no no, I thought I had, but there's always something more…

Who… are you
Who… are you
Who… are you
Track Name: Alone
When I feel alone
I feel you by my side
I don't want to be
Alone…

Alone… Alone… Alone…

There's just one thing you should know
You don't have to be alone

Don't watch the world outside your door
Because your windows growing small

Don't build your walls too high
There's always someone new

You don't have to be alone
You don't have to be alone

Alone… Alone… Alone…

When I feel alone
I feel you by my side
I don't want to be
Alone…

Alone… Alone… Alone…

We try to keep ourselves up high
Because the fall will break us all

But here's just one thing you should know
You don't have to be alone

You don't need any advice
Your minds made up, your sacrifice

You don't have to be alone
You don't have to be alone

Alone… Alone… Alone…

When I feel alone
I feel you by my side
I don't want to be
Alone…
Track Name: Human After All (Live)
Do you feel it, the same as I do right now
An anger creeping slowly past my calm
A silhouette fading out to the dark
Do you feel my love?

Are you with me, do you hear my voice, calling out to you
I’ve been waiting, waiting for this moment to arise
But are you running, away from what you know is right
I’ve been there before, trying hard to fight
Emotions laid bare, yet hidden in plain sight
Just try to make a move
And time… will try to heal…
The wounds that remind us, remind us of who we are
Lest forget that we’ve come so far, and that pain however real builds character
We’re human, human after all

Ooh…

Though we believe in life before our death, we try to hold our breath
We’re human after, human after all
That’s said and done, your words they fall right off the tongue serpentine
We’re human after, human after all
The damage dealt, holding on to the love you felt, it slips away
We’re human after, human after all
You wonder deep into the recesses you keep in your mind
We’re human after, human after all


Can you still hear me, the voice inside your head
We’ve been through it all, my only trusted friend
My views are changing, or is it just the world
The directions of the wind, make it hard to recall
And time it wanders by…
Lest forget that we’ve come so far, and that pain however raw it builds our character
We’re human after all


Though we believe in life before our death, we try to hold our breath
We’re human after, human after all
That’s said and done, your words they fall right off the tongue serpentine
We’re human after, human after all
The damage dealt, holding on to the love you felt, it slips away
We’re human after, human after all
You wonder deep into the recesses you keep in your mind
We’re human after, human after all
