about

However unfashionable or unwanted Love songs are or have become - my album is a collection of love songs. But real love songs, love songs that come from almost 20 years of being with someone, love songs in which every word is honest, true and meant. When my last band broke up and i decided to try one last time to write an album, without producers,managers, labels or bandmates and without having to write for what i thought other people wanted to hear or expected to hear. I decided that I would never again write a false song or false word. I decided that if this was the last album i would make, then it should be about the greatest thing i have in my life and that is 'Her', 'Us', Our Life, the Home, the constant love of someone and not the instant, the everyday struggles and triumphs and not the imagined epic. I realised, so called normal life, my normal life is precious everyday, and so deserves songs to be written about it. However overly romantic this sounds, every sound and every word on this album is written for Her, a woman who has given me everything. This album is me trying to give something of that everything back.
To completely change a great phrase by John Cage, “I have something to say and I am saying it... quietly”

Track Name: Home
Your eyes are the fires
That light me
Your hair is the straw
That I sleep on
Your body is the stove
I use to keep me warm

There is no place like home
There is no place like home
There is no place I know
And I want to go home

Your arms are the walls that surround me
Your hands are the doors that protect me
Im built out of your stone
The only place I call my own

There is no place like home
There is no place like home
There is no place I know
And I want to go home
Track Name: Something of me
Something of me
Will always be with you
Something of me
In every breath you use

Even if I leave here before you
There will always be a part of me
That holds you
Something of me
Always here with you

Sometimes I’ll seem
To far away from you
And sometimes you’ll fear
I am lost to you


Even if I leave here before you
There will always be a part of me
That holds you
Something of me
Always here with you
Track Name: Stronger
I don’t know anyone as true as you
I don’t know anyone
Who works as hard as you do
I don’t know anyone
As patient as you

And you should know it
But you don’t know it

You're stronger than you think you are
You’re the strong one out of us
You're stronger than you think you are
So don’t give up
Don’t give up

I don’t know anyone as selfless as you
I don’t know anyone who gives as much as you do
I don’t know anyone with grace like yours

And you should know it
But you don’t know it

You're stronger than you think you are
You’re the strong one out of us
You're stronger than you think you are
So don’t give up
Don’t give up
Track Name: Coat against the cold
I will not leave you
When darkness comes to you
I will not leave you
To be alone

I will not forgot
When storms are overhead
I will not forget
You here alone

I’ll be your protection
When you feel exposed
And you,
you can wear me now
I’ll be your
Coat against the cold

I will not forsake
When life begins to ache
I will not forsake
You to be alone

I’ll be your protection
When you feel exposed
And you, you can wear me now
I’ll be your
Coat against the cold
Track Name: Sorry
A life on hold as long as this
I sometimes think on what you’ve missed

Sorry sorry
For the things undone
Sorry sorry
If I wasn't there
When you needed
Someone

I hope that soon you’ll look and see
Your life is all you want it to be


Sorry sorry
For the things undone
Sorry sorry
If I wasn't there
When you needed
Someone
Track Name: Us
Don’t be scared to fail
It's ok to lose
Because you can always

Return, return, return to us
When life, when life, when life
Gets rough
Return to us

Don’t be afraid you’ll fall
You can't fall far enough

When you can always

Return, return, return to us
When life, when life, when life
Gets rough
Return to us
Track Name: You made me
I wasn’t born
Before I met you
I wasn’t built
Before we kissed
I was only half
Half of what I would be
Because you
You made me

I didn’t see
Until we both saw
I wasn’t me
Before I was you
I was only part
Part of what I could be

Because you
You made me

Who I am, who I am
And who I
What to be
What to be
To
Be
To be

I wasn’t born
Before I met you
I was only half
Half of what I would be
Because you
You made me
Track Name: Flood my heart
Flood my heart
Flood my heart
With your love
Stronger than death
Your love
Greater and stronger
Then death
Stronger than death

Flood my heart
Flood my heart
With your love
Stronger than death
Your love
Greater and stronger
Then death
Stronger than death
Track Name: Take your pain
I wish I could take
All your hurt away

I wish I could replace you
When you need rest

I’ll take your pain
I’ll take your pain

Let me share your hurt
And help you through the worst


I’ll take your pain
I’ll take your pain

Pain
Pain
Pain
Track Name: Last days
If I can not hold you
For all time

Then all I can promise
Is to love you now
Like I’ll love you
In our last days


If we can not both be
Immortal then all I can offer

Then all I can offer
Is to love you now
Like I’ll love you
In our last days
Track Name: Give myself to you
Hold me
To your breast
To your breast
Bring me to rest

Be near me
As close as this
As close as this
Nothing else exists

I give myself to you
Track Name: Faith
Faith one day we’ll marry
Faith I’ll get us a home
Full of light and safety
Warm within its stone

But nothing’s certain
In this world

nothing’s certain
In this world

But I have faith
I have faith
I have faith
It will happen

Faith the sea will be near us
Faith our windows will see
Fields that show us the seasons
And footprints beside you and me

I hope that’s certain
I hope that’s certain in my life

And I have Faith
I have Faith
I have Faith
It will happen
