Track Name: Birds Of The Moon
Birds Of The Moon

Travelling through this land
I am a stranger here
Down moss-green, velvet stairs
Black thorns, the branches bare

Hear the mighty call
Birds of the moon up above
Knowing somehow
That day will come

Shadows bending low
On this tangled round
Through the furthest door
Closer I go

Don’t know the way
Every step I’m taking blindly
Don’t know the way
Just need to trust that it will find me

Stepping closer to the garden
Getting closer to the garden
Track Name: Wine
Wine

Lift that window off the wall
Roll it up like a canvas
All that cold reality
is more than this girl can handle

Block the chimney, bolt the door
Pull the phone from it’s socket
Grab that bottle off the shelf
Make way for the ruby red rocket

Wine, wine wine nothing sweeter than wine
Wine wine wine, slay me blind.

A magic brew, a tonic too
Let’s drink from the rose coloured glass
Watch the circus come to town
and pray that the music lasts

Problems they will fade away
Drink til the blues get gone
Hoping that they won’t be back with the
Cold clear light of the dawn.

Waking hour tasting sour
Razors shoved in my brain
Empty bottle mocks me
and I know I can’t complain

But wait a while ’til evening smiles
I know it won’t be long
Before I lose myself inside
that crimson siren song
Track Name: Big Guitar
I like to think I’m really quite polite
Smiling with perennial delight
But if you want to see me contemplate homicide
Drive me right past Jekyl into Hyde

We’re not all poets, this, I understand
And the obvious is always close at hand
Resist the call, I’ve heard it all a thousand billion times
Hold your breath, think before you use these lines

“Hey, that’s a big guitar!
However do you fit it in your car?
It’s really over-sized you know
You SHOULD have played the piccolo
Why ever would you want to travel far
With such a big guitar?”

Do you really think we haven’t thought it out?
That years of practise masked a secret doubt
Now you can be our guiding light, correct our mistake
And we’ll queue up to throw our basses in the lake.

By now I’m sounding petulant, it’s true
But what’s the harm in thinking these things through?
And if it saves just one poor soul already weighed down
From yet another tiny push towards a total melt down

I’ll shout it from the highest hills, I’ll form my own choir
To sing this solemn vow composed to help control this desire
I’ll Facebook share it night and day, I mean to inspire you all
Twitter, Vimeo, YouTube I swear I won’t tire of it
For if I hear it one more time results could be dire
I’ll finally go barking mad, completely haywire
I’ll pour petrol in your letterbox and set it on fire
I’ll put bricks through all your window panes and slash all your tyres
Then I’ll throttle all your relatives with rusty barbed wire….

If I hear one more…

A spectacle! It’s quite bizarre
You should have played harmonica
Why ever would you want a rig so big, big, big, big
Hey, that’s a massive violin!
However do you get that sucker under your chin?
It’s really freakin’ huge to me
A Sherlock Holmes scale mystery
Why anyone would choose to cart
That giant beast to make a little art
You really can’t be very smart

To play that bulky, hulking, cosmic epic,
King-sized and galactic, astronomic and impractical
Gigantic and gargantuan, enormous, elephantine and
Titanic, vast, voluminously
Mammoth, monstrous, mountainous,
Humungous great colossus of a
Jumbo-jet-sized, whopping, great guitar.
Track Name: Down Where The River Flows
Down Where The River Flows

Lover sweet it's time to go
Down where the river flows
Time to chase that slow rainbow to a
Place nobody knows
Cracked and cold, I need a miracle
Down where the river flows
Take me far from this gritty old city to a
Place nobody knows

Find a sky all dressed in blue
Down where the river flows
Long green grass to fall into, need a
Place nobody knows
Unwind that clockwork spring
Down where the river flows
Lose our grip on everything in a
Place nobody knows

Peaches, pancakes, polka-dot rhymes
Down where the river flows
Late night songs and smooth red wine in a
Place nobody knows
Dictionary, pictionary, cheating at scrabble
Down where the river flows
Or swimming in beer with the local rabble in a
Place nobody knows

Rolling around like TV lovers
Down where the river flows
Mills and Boon down under the covers in a
Place nobody knows
Sleep on through ‘til the afternoon
Down where the river flows
Nestled neat like a coupla old spoons in a
Place nobody knows

Cosy curled in our cocoon
But morning brings it home too soon

C-moon rise, it's getting late
Down where the river flows
Bullfrog croonin’ like a creaky gate in a
Place nobody knows
Kiss the bliss goodbye in the afterglow
Down where the river flows
Fresh cut plans and raring to go in a
Place nobody knows
Track Name: Two Little Sisters
Two Little Sisters

Two little sisters

Two little lights

Two little bluebirds
Longing to fly
Two empty pages
All gleaming and white
Waiting for the dance to start

Two little dreamers
With lips to unlock
Two quiet schemers
Two cotton frocks
Two pairs of slippers
And lily white socks
Waiting for the dance to start

Where are you bound, sir?
Please tell me your name
Why do you leave me
Crying in shame?
Sister, oh sister
You’ve no one to blame
You let the dancer taker your heart

Two little sisters

Two little lights

Two little bluebirds
Longing to fly
Two empty pages
All gleaming and white
Waiting for the dance to start
Track Name: Wouldn't Be Enough
Wouldn't Be Enough

Let’s not go too fast
Let’s just take it slow
This could be a big mistake you never know
And though every single cell in my body’s
Being drawn to you like an orbiting comet
I try to be cool
I’m trying hard to resist

‘Cause if you just took the part of me
That I wanted you to see
That just wouldn’t be enough
And if I just took the part of you
That you wanted me to
That just wouldn’t be
All of you, and it wouldn’t be enough

My heart’s quickening
And with bated breath
I’m waiting for you to decide what’s next
‘cause you’re in control
Yeah, you set the pace
But I’m holding back now just in case
I make a wrong move
and I make a disgrace of myself
Track Name: Sister Share Your Load
Sister Share Your Load

Wait a minute sister
there’s something I’ve gotta say
You’ve been running that
old ring a rosy now all the live long day
You think the game is so important
That you can put your song on hold
Clinging to the wrapping paper
when the gift is solid gold

If you do what you always do
Then you get what you always get
A whole lotta half baked victories
and a bucket of cold regret
Do you think it really matters
what you’re crossing off your list?
If you don’t stop, and look around you now
You’ll never notice what you’ve missed

‘Til you’re out of time,
Time to discover, there ain’t no way to recover
Precious time
Wasting rhyme
Mirror Mirror on the wall
Wake up to your sister’s call
Girl, you’re headed for a fall
If you don’t choose some firmer ground
We’re all here waiting
For you to stop beside the road
We’re in this thing together
Little sister share your load
(Solo)

You won’t regret the deadlines
that you missed
Like the seeds you didn’t sow
Better stop and look around you now
or you’ll fade before you know

That you’re out of time
Time to discover, there ain’t no way to recover
Precious time
Wasting rhyme
Mirror Mirror on the wall
Wake up to your sister’s call
Mirror Mirror can’t you see
Freedom starts with bravery
Mirror mirror this I know
Fear won’t help your soul to grow
It’s time to ditch the whole sideshow
and move to firmer ground
You need time to surrender
all of the lies that you’ve been sold
We’re in this thing together
Little sister share your load.
