Your Boat 03:07
I wanna see your boat float across that sea I want it to be just you and me I know there’s someone else who haunts you to this day But if you let me I’ll be yours and here to stay All my life, I’ve never met someone like you On my life, I want to be the one with you You’re alive, in a way I can’t deny Because I can see you I know you seek a newer way to be You’re breaking down doors I cannot see You’re frozen in a world where you can’t stand to be You’re hoping time will tell a tale you can believe Head for open sea Join with me today Waiting there I’ll be Hoping you will stay
Today 03:31
There is a man we all know He walks the thin night air, he plays his own tattoo And what he has to say, we all need to hear But we fear what we see Today I remembered who I am It was a revelation I had Somewhere on the way to Cairns I came to Whenever I see his face, I see truth He tells me where we go when the curtain comes down He leads me in the strange cycle of possibilities Without knowing why, I let myself fall, and let myself be picked up I stumbled through the fields of grass And my body twitched like dawn at the glass And the ground rose up beneath my feet Caught by a cry I came up In a bright mirror I saw my home And I put out my hand
You said, you’ve got a new job All is well that ends well Happy endings aren’t so hard You’ve got firm hands, and it pays well, oh it pays well When you said that you would call, Did that mean I’d never hear from you at all? When you said that you’d come ‘round Did that mean you’d disappear without a sound? You said, you’re getting better every day The doctors all say, you’re on the mend You’ve come a long way, from just one year ago What you’re wondering, is when it ends, when will it end? What about the time You came back for more, had me knocking at your door And what about your dream You were so keen, for me to treat you mean What about the time And when you said, that you were mine Was it all in my own mind? And when you left, was that because You didn’t like what I’d said? When you left When you left
The Fall 03:56
We come to our senses But only when we fall in the end We claw at each other All the while knowing it’s wrong We do what we have to Just trying to get by We go to our graves Fanning the flames Of our illusion We come to it all After our fall We’re tossed and broken The end comes for us all soon Might as well live while we can What if we forgot the future? And made a bet On what we know now And held on the moment For as long as we can We take our time but we don’t know Just how fast our time will go But we won’t get a second sip Of this full cup, we’re bound to miss
You don’t want to grow, any more There’s no need to grow, any more Who wants to be an adult anyway? Look what they did to you You were happy as a child Before the nightmare began If only you could get back You could change everything Now you’re trying to get clean, where you’ve been No-one should have to go You’re trying to get clean, what you’ve seen No-one should have to know If only you could, know why It felt so sickly sweet Each new man reminds you still Of that one man you’d like to kill Waiting such a time such a long time gonna be a Fine time when you finally get your peace of mind Today’s gonna be a brighter day When you get a chance to move ahead and let it all fade away


These songs are about life and love, joy and pain, reaching through time and space to find new meanings.
