Track Name: Impossible Song
impossible song

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
turn around again
tick tock tick tock tick tock
keep me in time
turn around again
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
turn around again
clip clop clip clop clip clop clip clop
don’t stop

i can’t eat
i can’t sleep
there’s a fire burning some place warm
i’m gonna follow my feet

and my heart she skips a beat
as i'm riding through these streets
on my horse she has no name
but she speaks, she says

keep singing on
keep singing on
keep being strong
keep riding on and on and on
keep singing on
keep singing on
cause baby, my baby
this is my impossible song

i’m untamed
in this frame
and it feels an ancient language
allows me to love in this way
though i’m seeped in overwhelm
i am standing at the helm
looking out to sea
and it’s you i carry with me and i say,

keep singing on
keep singing on
keep being strong
keep riding on and on and on
keep singing on
keep singing on
cause baby, my baby
this is my impossible song

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
turn around again
tick tock tick tock tick tock
keep me in time
turn around again
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
turn around again
clip clop clip clop clip clop clip clop
don’t stop...
Track Name: Beautiful World
beautiful world

you and i, in this beautiful world
under tiny fires burning in the sky
you and i, in this beautiful world
where i’m feeling so big and so small
at the same time

and you told me how you loved me
like the rocks they love the waves
and your words sweep me away
beyond the dusk

and you took me to your banyan tree
on the day that I first came
and I lost myself
somewhere between love and lust

you and i, in this beautiful world
where your love’s too big
for just one girl to hold
you and i you and i you and i
in this beautiful world
where in one long moment
i’m feeling so young, and so old
and you told me how you loved me
with the words you couldn’t say
and I smiled and with my eyes I said the same
and you drew from me emotion
that was caught within the seams
and I have to choose myself or you
it seems

and you told me when I let go
that you could see translucent wings
invisible to all the eyes but yours
and you laughed so, when you smiled at me
as I was dancing on the beach
we felt so close and now
we’re out of reach

you and i, in this beautiful world
where I finally see how to
read behind your eyes
you and i you and i you and i
in this beautiful world
where we’re holding hands
and drinking chai
neath those tiny fires
in the sky…..
Track Name: Sinbad Says
sinbad says

on a sultan’s roof the wind she plays
across the seas a prayers wail
and Oshan dreams
all his troubles away

neath October skies
sweet Sophia lay
a thousand eyes each their own
they pray
and the world outside
what’s on the news today

on the cobbled stones of Istanbul
Sinbad says, it’s written full
world peace is inevitable
on the cobbled stones of Istanbul
Sinbad says, it’s written full
world peace is inevitable

under Turkish sun how Marco draws
charcoal lines, what beauty saw
and Julian plays, black and white
so quiet

and Ebert paints in strokes of tea
washes bronze the world he seas
and we all bow
to this precious now

on the cobbled stones of Istanbul
Sinbad says, it’s written full
world peace is inevitable
peace is inevitable…..
Track Name: Halfway
halfway

sing low sweet honey bee row row row your wooden boat to me
sail on, oh gently cross the seas
oh love of mine...chase my melody

humming birds they shall lead your way
glide the wind, oh through another day
bicycles fly on our red hibiscus way
ride on, my love...to these strings i play...

winter turns a frozen river dream
skate on pearls, oh so melancholy
can you hear one distant heart beat
hear the sounds of my love ring the bells upon my feet

.....fly the sky like our wings say we could
climb the tide like our jim...
like our jim he said we would

night falls now, and the day she fades away
disappear like watercolours in the rain
rock a bye my baby upon my moonshine train
oh tonight my love, i'll meet you half way
yes tonight my love...i'll meet you half way
sweet kipi love...i'll meet you half way.....
Track Name: Feathers and String
feathers and string

standing in your kitchen
tears running down my sides
holding tight my little green bag
you pull me back inside
and hold me as I cry

you let me paint your walls that night
in fuchsia, red and green
i painted the morning in transparent light
you had a beard and pony eyes
i held my head upon my knee
you trace my face like
i’m a queen

all my walls come tumbling down
all my walls come tumbling down
my armour
of feathers and string
me and my feathers and string

you sing of crystal ships and now
the storm is almost gone
holding tight my little red heart
we travel south
you kiss my mouth

a million words that I can’t say
i sing for you to hear
i ask the past to fall away
the world to disappear
just for one day
maybe for a year
maybe for a year

all my walls come tumbling down
all my walls come tumbling down
my armour
of feathers and string
me and my feathers and string
i am all feathers and string
me and my feathers and string

you told me that your answer
it wasn’t the right one
my tears like rain are dancing
cause maybe
there’s no room in your heart for me
like I wish that there could be

all my walls come tumbling down
all my walls come tumbling down
my armour
of feathers and string
me and my feathers and string

milk and honey won’t you bring
to me and my feathers and my string
milk and honey won’t you bring
to me and my feathers and my string
me and my feathers and string
i am all feathers and string
me and my feathers and string….
Track Name: I am all for you
I am all for you

i am all for youlike the leaves are to the trees
the rocks are to the seas yes
i am all for you
like the sky is to the blue

my hand is for your hand
like the waves are to the sand
like Paris is to France
my hand is for your hand
beautiful lady, handsome man

way way way up above
in the place where they make love
they whispered to a pretty bird
oh have you heard those two
honey i
i am all for you

my light is for your eyes
like the breath is to the sigh
the wonder to the why
my light is for your eyes
it’s you and me
you and i

way way way up above
in the place where they make love
they whispered to a butterfly
won’t you flutter by those two
honey i, honey i, honey i
i am all for you…
Track Name: The Bravest Song
the bravest song

the line that divides
the truth from the lie
is sometimes so pale
when you stand on the side
and some things it seems
are bigger than we
like the force of a love
that showed me to see
the light that you shone
from a heart you saw dammed
allowed me to show you
the woman i am
the woman i am

sweet bravery of surrender
i don’t know if we’re
beginning, or we’re ending
are we beginning, or we’re ending
is this beginning
are we ending…

we planted a seed
we’re letting it go
to stand on that sideline
and see how she grows
so now here i stand
my face toward the sun
so you cannot see how i’m
coming undone
i’m coming undone

sweet bravery of surrender
i don’t know if we’re
beginning, or we’re ending
are we beginning, or we’re ending
is this beginning
are we ending

you said, you want to be
the man to protect
not the man to replace
all the armour i've shed
but i’m not made of steel
and i’m not made of glass
and somewhere between
lies this question I ask

is it me who you love?
is it you who’s my man?
could you be, would you be
could you be, would you be?

sweet bravery of surrender
i don’t know if we’re
beginning, or we’re ending
are we beginning, or we’re ending
is this beginning
are we ending…

is this the start
is this the end
how do we part
where are you my friend

is this the start
is this the end
across the seas
do you think of me

is this the start
is this the end
where do you stand
are you my man

is this the start
is this the end
where is your heart
to you this song i send…
Track Name: Eternal Springtime
eternal springtime

i walked into your house tonight
you walked behind me and you
asked me should I turn on the light
i said no, let’s leave it dark for a while

you held me with your coffee coloured eyes
i held your gaze but I had no place to hide
you told me it’s about letting go
but its letting go I don’t know

it’s like the rising sun
of this eternal springtime
rising sun
of this, our eternal springtime

you held me in a place I couldn’t move
sharpened all my senses, told me exactly what to do
and so i breathed so deep into the ground
and tried to quieten the heart of my sound

my body it is beating like a drum
the air it feels unsteady, I can hear a distant hum
and this energy is moving like a train
i saw us in the mirror
we blew me away

and when we said goodbye
my fingers touched your face
and when we said goodbye
all seasons four embraced
and when we said goodbye
we blew me away…
