Track Name: Vine
Think you can bring gifts to my door
What brought me here
Well I trust it more
So I'll wait for the right connection
So clear my hearts intention and,
Did I, did I ever mention?

All of my wishes all that I have to hold
Promised me kingdoms decorated in gold
If this is my story I'll chase it into the sun
Thought that my time had, thought that my time had begun.

Think you can look into my soul
I'm vine, i'm twining and I soar
And it ripples around in my intention
Shimmering the ultimate invention and,
Did I, did I ever mention?

All of my wishes all that I have to hold
Promised me kingdoms decorated in gold
If this is my story I'll chase it into the sun
Thought that my time had, thought that my time had..

So please know that my heart is true
I can only ever proceed when I'm sure
So I'll leave it, over to you.

So please know that my heart is true.
Track Name: Secrets of the Skies
Don't worry too deep
Just let the conversation fly
To wonder ever more and more
Reach out and try to learn the secrets of the skies
And I know that I've got something in mind
To learn the secrets of the skies
And I know that I've got something in mind.

Don't forget that when I live
I breathe in deep, take photographs
Picture, vernice, yeah coat the surface
Coat the surface.

To learn the secrets of the skies
And I know that I've got something in mind.

So don't worry too deep
Just let the conversation fly
To wonder ever more and more
What's vital and raw
To learn the secrets of the skies
And I know that I've got something in mind.
To learn the secrets of the skies
And I know, and I know and I know..
Track Name: Walk Over
Walk over the hill
Walk over the hill
Tonight

Set an alarm for the occasion
You awaken all creation
And love is art

For once in my life my fortress
Seems to unfold
Like petals opening
For once in my life my fortress
Seems to unfold
Like petals opening
To dissolve.

You will find me walking deeper in
You will find me walking deeper in
You will find me walking deeper in
You will find me walking deeper.

So walk over the hill
Walk over the hill
Like tides we exit and enter in
I love my god, my god within.

For once in my life my fortress
Seems to unfold
Like petals opening
To dissolve
To dissolve.

You will find me walking deeper in
You will find me walking deeper in
You will find me walking deeper in
You will find me walking deeper, deeper, deeper.
Track Name: Start Again
Page falls, another page
I can't bear to read
What truth might be calling
Just hold on to me
And I'll feel the connection
I'll kneel at the throne
Dismantle all my beliefs
Swallow them whole.

We end and you end and start again.

Crave for another way
To build make complete
Stars line up above our heads
All this majesty
That I feel a connection to
That reveals all I can truly own
It takes me far away from here
Brings it on home.

We end and you end and start again.

And somethings changing
say something good
And sunlight's coming over
Over the wood
Say something good.
Track Name: I Think it's Time to Grow
Floating above the air I see a picture made of a melody
Little breeze flying higher I see your hand in mine
And you accept me.

Radiance rests upon my shoulder, a little closer
I can feel you I can find my way
It's better in this world so why did I resist?
We're only human you know.

Grow, spreading out please I insist
I understand the pattern
I've been kissed
By a thousand silver stars going far.

Something is shining now
Something is shining now
Going far
And back again.
Track Name: Out There
Even when we're sad
And yet we're glad that we could sail over it
Happy again to lose ourselves,
Separated winds between us
But always hooked
You look fine to me.
Fine to me.

To know that you're alive well senses race and chase
Behind the bike sheds we were cool
I'll always remember those days skipping school
And hope is mine, hope is ours to shine.

I'm waiting for a reason
Waiting for a reason

Running towards the light it just escapes me
And how you've thrilled me
Looking for that perfect paradise
Could be nice to find out why
Find out why

I'm waiting for a reason
Waiting for a reason
It's all out there
Track Name: Clear Pretence
Can't read minds but I know
All these riches I find reinforce a faith in me
Taking chances to remind me
Of a time when I saw things more clearly.

Well what a mixture, how to commence?
And all these colors will fly out
And clear pretence, clear pretence.

She said c'mon like a thief
Got inside how safe it feels, oh yeah
Running round on toadstools
The grass is long and hides the fools, oh yeah

And well what a mixture, what lies within?
And all these colors will fly out
To where it begins, it begins.
Track Name: My Dream
Make you an altar, cherish my dream
Fit for gods to enter, starlights beam.

Earth and white moon
Among the stars
Earth and white moon
I am listening to my heart.

The mystery of the waters
A gentle heart
The legacy goes on and on
And we are all a part of

Earth and white moon
Among the stars
Earth and white moon
I am listening with my heart.
Track Name: Nothing Else
Cover me, all of me in your light like angels
I will only wrap it around our imaginations.
Calm in my voice, uttered a choice
And now it's sending me out

Like sunlight on the ocean makes
Shining days like these
And I want for nothing else
Oh baby when you're here with me feels easy
I want nothing else.

Looking out soaring and now I can hardly catch my breath
And at the fire don't shrink back a calm of ages
Feeling this, this echo in time
How it's sending me out

Like sunlight on the ocean makes
Shining days like these
And I want for nothing else
Oh baby when you're here with me it's easy
Like sunlight on the ocean makes
Shining days, days like these
And I want for nothing else
Oh baby when you're here with me feels easy
I want nothing else, want nothing else.
Track Name: Limitless
Trick of the light and now I'm pouring out innocence
Broken bones drift ashore
And I'd give so much more
And I'd give so much more
To be by your side it's limitless.

Feel weight on ground loose gravity our sound
Fall into light creative
And I'd give so much more
And I'd give so much more
You're so fine, reach out it's limitless.

Just so perfect and so pretty my misery can't be found.
