Track Name: The glove on my hand
The glove on my hand keeps me warm.
The love that we wrap around wishing stonewells
And hearts un-tied needing bundling and cuddling
Washes over me,

‘Til I end up in the sea.
It’s there we’ll meet and paddle our feet
Into the deepness and devilishness of the ocean.
Track Name: Squint your eyes
I dont want to draw the lines
between what's bad and what's fine
I want to lead myself thru the forest
with the light from the
tallest trees falling on us

I dont want to know all the scandal
when someone somewhere
gets stuck in a wrangle
I want to lead myself
with healthy information

Not get stuck in a road that's a
go-slow situation
who am I to judge all the angles
the complications

squint your yes
and realise
squint your eyes
see thru the lies
blind your sight
squint your eyes

I dont want to draw the lines
between what's bad and what is fine
I want to lead myself
with healthy information

squint your eyes
trust your sight

you cant tell the trees from the forest
you cant pick them out be honest
Track Name: Sad n Blue
I never take the time to talk with you
I want to learn to realise
I look down closely
watch you open your eyes
They seemed so far
between and so few

Chorus:
Sad and blue dressing in disguise
masquerading with your mascara eyes
I thought I lost you
walk out on a fine line
Sad n blue she's always in my mind

Once I left you caught up in a jam
Now I want to make it fine again
I opened up a shiny bottle of wine
It flowed and ran
To the heart it ran, yes it did..

I waste my words
I never listen to you
I want to change some natural laws
I ate up all your hope
i wish you never saw
It left a mess
and I left a clue for you
Track Name: Shadow a light
You shadow a light
Following your favourite star
You shadow a light
Caring for you

You show up at night
Walking streets
Darkness falling fast
You go way out of sight

We're still looking in the shadows
In the shadows a light

Bells are all ringing
In the towns and hills around
Fingers are tingling
From a cold calling card

So softly spoken
But in winter
Summers loud as daisy thunder

The powers hold me tight
Pulling lovebirds
Feathers asunder
They're singing bells tonight

You shadow a light
Falling from your favourite star
You shadow a light
In the shadow a light

You shadow, following your favourite star
Shadow a light.
Track Name: Fruit from your tree - acoustic
I'm waiting for my gravy
My meal's nearly run cold
The waiter's put out the candle
As I unsteadily grow old
It's a recipe for disaster
Self service is the answer

Oh let me eat some fruit from your tree
Oh let me eat some fruit from your tree

I climb unto a high wall
To look out onto the bounty
The trees rustle as the birds rise
me I'm circling rounding these
I'm waiting for the birds call
To climb up and claim it all

Oh let me eat some fruit from your tree
Oh let me eat some fruit from your tree

Birds that stand the weather
Sing on through the day
I dont want to rustle their feathers
Make them take up and fly away
There's only one winner
Among too many losers

Oh let me eat some fruit from your tree
Oh let me eat some fruit from your tree

Oh set me down and treat a soul
with delivery..
Track Name: The last great rock n roll star
I’m the last great rock n roll star
I believe that and I hear it coming through
You’re right it’s madness tonight
But I’m a lost soul on the edge of the universe

No one sees me or can free me anymore
So hear me if you will if you haven’t heard me before
Everywhere I play I have to give
And find something that I can live for

*Come and live inside my head for a day
It’s a warehouse and a whorehouse
And a television set
Feeding back on my brain

I’m the last great rock n roll heavyweight
Fighting against everything with the world in my hands
Put me back into my corner
Don’t ruin my buzz man

I can’t stun or seduce for real
I can incite a riot with every youngblood
I’m pullin’ at the wall of sound in my belly
I’m the last ball and chain lead belly
Track Name: Crawfish-2010
Well I went to the bayou just last night
There was no moon but the stars were bright
Put a big long hook on a big long pole
And I pulled Mr. Crawfish out of his hole
Crawfish

See I got him, see the size
Stripped and cleaned before your eyes
Sweet meat look, fresh and ready to cook
Crawfish

Now take Mr. Crawfish in your hand
He's gonna look good in your frying pan
If you fry him crisp or you boil him right
He'll be sweeter than sugar when you take a bite
Crawfish
Track Name: In the face
There's a time to live
Car tree animal
There’s a time to give
While we're standing tall
With the will to go on
There's a time to make love
Witness full blown magical
In the face of love
It's a miracle

In the face of love
We stand 10 paces away
From each other each day
In the face of love
Binding us equal

Keep the balance between
Lightning and rain
And when there's a storm and its rough
I will silence your scream
I've got an earful
I've got an angel
Telling me I’m feeling still
Like a tree
But that's not natural
In the face of love
It's a miracle

Don’t let your well-being run dry
Taste the flavoured sun spill
Onto the fragrant sky
It's a miracle
In the face of love
It's a miracle
Track Name: There's the pain
There's the pain
There's the suffering
How can it be explained
Without pointing to history

There's the pain
And there's the suffering
How can it be explained
Without painting sad stories
And there's the doctor
And there's the bandage
How can it be enough to cover the anger
And smother my anger; disappear

There's the bullet
There's the scurrying
How can we tell the war mongers
Without shaking them senseless

And where's the bandage
And where's the doctor
How can it be enough to cover the anger
And smother my anger disappear

There's the pain
And there's the suffering
Will the children lying there
Ever see again
There's the pain
And there's the suffering
Will we the older ones get to call their names again

There's the pain
Where's the rain
Wash it all away
Wash it to another day

To where there's a bandage
Where there's a doctor
How can it be enough to cover the anger
And smother my anger disappear
