Track Name: Lucky Ones
Aren't we the lucky ones,
Living with stars in the sky
I build constelations around me everyday
Retreating and exposing myself
To a thousand dreams in wonder
It sometimes goes and at times it brings me in
To a better future
Living with thoughts all lightly interwoven

Aren't we the lucky ones
To have a sense of self
Food for all the bugs that fly if we are nothing else
Protuding out from an open wound
Shadowed by a cigarrette
I put it out
I light it up
To a better Future
Living with thoughts all lightly interwoven

Aren't we the lucky ones
To dream, sing and share
Cold nights are coming in, fire brings us closer together
Living on life gone by
Shadowing what we know
It's all here
What came before
And though I worry about the future
I try my best to let go

Where do I go? Am I past?
Who is to know what is to last.
When I look up at the stars we all share
We all share
We all share

I say, aren't we the lucky ones
Living with stars in the sky
I build constellations around me everyday
Track Name: Off to Sea
Off to sea
To take my soul and wash it clean
Sometimes the city burns through my eyes
And there is no place

I wish we were fools
content with love
But there is no way
That we're calling this the end

Off to sea
And though it's in my heart that you come too
A falling star past and shed no light
I love but don't belong to you

Why need return
to this I'm blind
for when we meet again
You'll still be a friend of mine
I wish we were fools
content with love
but there is no way
that we're calling this the end

So I'm off to sea
Let bright lights and the pretty people be
I don't care for words unless they're sung
And when you sing a song for me

Come sail with the fools
Where fish are ripe
We'll dance upon the water
And not have a worried mind
When days rock forth
And there is no time
I'll be off to sea
And I'll see you when the sun
Comes running in
Track Name: Wine n Whisky (polyamorous love song)
Feeling the wine n the whisky
The beats of our hearts have combined
Trying to breath slowly and deeply
a love without falling is fine

Struck by a current of strangers
Singing a chord so sublime
Letting go of the wreath after eating the treats
This love is a good friend of mine

Mr Monogomy
Polyamorous beauty
Holding open both palms and reflecting true virtues
She takes you and loves you
Know nothing is constant
and if that is true then there's always exceptions

But one thing I know is though this heart is open
I'm shut down from what was and a sceptic at Best

The sweat and the motions
The love and the pain
Cannot be re-written again

Wishes were almost destruction
my greatest lesson is change
Don't be afraid to be mistaken
Knowing when to call it a day

Now I'm feeling the wine and the whisky
The beats of our hearts have combined
Trying to breath slowly and deeply
a Love without falling is fine
Track Name: Silent Help
Something that I want from you
that I can only find in me
I don't know how but you have me seen

The way you turn me in your eyes
To hide what'd on your mind I know
There are many ways to be a friend

But it's up to me
The judgment of myself
Learning to take steps
Encouraged by your silent help

Sometimes I think I need to know
But knowing comes out from within
Feelings screaming lous is where I've been

So this step I don't take for you
This is one you give to me
Paths collide, seperate to breath

Eyes that find for easy ways
To run and hide behind the tears
It's hard to share what you don't even know

Cos life leads us and rolls around
To cares and dreams and love beyond
Often popping bubbles that we blow

But it's up to me
The judgment of myself
Learning to take steps
Encouraged by your silent help

When you start to move
Free from sinking down
Building up the roots
That would have been and will be cut down
Track Name: The Ground that Made me
Wild woman shifts through the leaves as they fall
Peace will be hers once again
She rises and slips at the same time
Must have brought havoc to her soul

She claws at my skin peels away to the bone
Clutching my hand by her side
I don't know what I beleive but I pray for her spirit
To be lit by the stars
Rolling along rivers to the sea

Life casts all but your old friends aside
And my care had slipt far away
She loved me and laughed at the same time
Auld wanderers the drift far away
You're here in my thoughts till the leaves fall on me
Till the fire turns my ashes across the sky
I'll never surrender my old memories
And not linger through the tears at my side

I dream of her body in soil seeping up
Helping all mother nature to grow
I don't want a coffin to bury me whole
I wish to decay
In the ground that made me
To decay in the ground that made me

Wild woman shifts through the leaves as they fall
Peace will be hers once again
