Track Name: ONE DAY
just put your arms around me
and tell me you need me
if forever scares you
well, take it easy

I'll make you a believer
I'm writing for our future
one day's it's gonna happen
and the world our oyster

one day I'll get to find myself
one day I'll get it right now
I'm moving against the crowd always
but I'm drowning out the doubt

one day, it will be alright now
one day at a time to pick myself up somehow
don't draw the world in shades of grey
don't burn me out this way

so put your arms around me
and tell me you want me
and if this story moves you
we'll make it baby

one day we'll get to find ourselves
one day we'll get it right now
we're moving against the crowd always
yes, we're drowning out all doubt

one day, it will be alright now
one day at a time we'll pick ourselves up somehow
ignore the world in shades of grey
a rainbow follows the rain
Track Name: ZENIPHYR
in a moment
of cool reflection
I seek forgiveness
for what's been done
is this fulfillment
of a promise?
or absolution
from where I run?

and as I look behind me
at green meadows
and on towards the sunlit uplands
of Zeniphyr

music saved me
from dark destruction
and the demons
inside my head
gave me a reason
beyond just being
before the journey
among the dead

and now as I reach before me
out from these shadows
I see and touch the wonder
of Zeniphyr

when the curtains come down
and your journeys gone full circle now
when you're certain you've found
a place where you belong
you fall to the ground
and you pray as you hear the sound
and the orchestra plays
leading to Zeniphyr
Track Name: ON A WINTERS' MORNING
on a winters' morning
you see the cold light of the dawn
waiting till the sun comes out
inside the house where you were born
you'd been standing there out from the rain
with angels by your side
listening as the blowing wind
was calling out your name

on a winters' morning
you can breathe the light
before the last moments of the dawn
are hidden out of sight
different colours and different shades
as the birds begin call
and as the night passes away
things are becoming clear

on a winters' morning
on a winters' day
a new day has come now
Track Name: TAKE THE OPEN ROAD
gonna leave this town tomorrow
gonna leave this place behind
and be gone before the morning
the grass was greener for a while

I've seen what I was doing
I'd been trying to settle down
but I've stuck around here too long
and my feet don't like this ground

so take the open road
and let's keep moving on
nothing lasts forever
whatever we're dreaming
but it's worth it to believe
and here the sun will rise
getting ever closer to our eyes

so maybe I need to talk
but my mind is shut down
guess the longer that I walk
the easier I am found

it's me that I was fooling
got my own cross to bear
should have seen that this was coming
but it's harder if you care

so take the open road
and let's keep moving on
nothing lasts forever
whatever we're dreaming
but it's worth it to believe
and here the sun will rise
getting ever closer to our eyes

gonna leave this town tomorrow
I'm gonna leave this place behind
and I'll be gone before the morning

so take the open road
and let's keep moving on
nothing lasts forever
whatever we're dreaming
but it's worth it to believe
and here the sun will rise
getting ever closer to our eyes
Track Name: SHE BRINGS ME COLOUR
been thinking 'bout the way I guess I see myself
for me to understand mistakes that I always make
just when you think that it's all over
and you're hit with a brand new start
and then she does that smile she brings
and I can't remember what I do
what I know or where I go

she brings me colour
oh give it to me now
she's got that true blood
now I feel this fever on the rise

dignified in what she does
and I said "so tell me now what's to come"
and I'm never gonna be the same again
'cos she was clever in what she said
and then when she does that smile she brings
and I can't remember what I do
what I know, or where I go

a deep connection
'cos this is what it is
we all need some affection
there's no black and white in this
Track Name: NORTHERN MAN BENEATH A NORTHERN SKY
he's waiting, simply watching
painting pictures, don't know why
searching for inspiration
but find the answers lay inside
broken and not mended
like some driftwood on the tide
a dark place, unintended
took a wrong turn from time to time

some win and some are losers
some are fighters till the day they die
not easy when all's confusion
the path is winding, no straight line
not even half way normal
and every brush stroke portrays a lie
never what is wanted
within the canvas is where to hide

now this northern man awakes
beneath a northern sky he waits

maestro stands creating
captures the landscape and the light
moods forever changing
still everything will be alright
Track Name: LEAVE THE LIGHT ON AT YOUR DOOR
so let me back now to where it all began
'cos I can't cure myself
and, if I could, I'd surely turn back time
and be somebody else
so leave the light on at your door
and through your window to the world
feel me waiting there

forget me not, I ask of you
so forget me not, now my love
I liked it better when I smiled beside you
and if we never meet again
think of me every now and then 'cos I love you
'cos we both know what this is
when you possess the key
it's yours to hold or to pass it on to someone new
and if we never meet again
I'll think of you always when I'm lonely

I liked you better, you know, when you lied
but forgive you for your truth
can't see a way now no matter how I try
without being back with you
so leave the light on at your door
and through your window to the world
feel me waiting there
Track Name: LONDON KISS
sometimes late at night
I sit in bed and start to write
'bout where the neons are shining bright
down the Kings Road after light
so if you ask me where I am
hanging tough in a Soho bar
playing guitar in the Underground
down to London to chase that sound

I miss that London kiss
and to feeling now as I did then
no tears rolling down my skin
to become the man I was back when

but it's only concrete and cars
only sirens and missing stars
as my train pulls into Waterloo
I hope by chance that I find you
took a stroll down to Abbey Road
black umbrellas pass me by
a pocket map of where to go
spread below the London Eye
Track Name: AND STILL THE OCEAN WHISPERS
and still the ocean whispers
seabirds cry my pain
words that linger
on the turning waves
change the dark clouds
to the bluest blue
can't make you love me
like I love you
we've got our dreams

in the timber bones of a sunken ship
I dream of gold beneath
across the sea
hope carry me
to treasures I may find
and try to do the best I can
and slowly to understand

and still the ocean whispers
as I call your name
the need in me now
cracked like porcelain
change the dark clouds
to the bluest blue
can't make you love me
like I love you
we've got our dreams
Track Name: VERBAL RIOT
so, I got it wrong and made me angry
like a loaded gun, yeh, now we're ready
think I like it when you're quiet?
so there’s gonna be a verbal riot

right or wrong, it can't be for fun
I'm down on my knees for what's left of us
well high or low, your hearts turned cold
can't take it anymore 'cos I don't trust you no more

now what you hear is not a test now
it's a verbal gunfight like the wild wild west now
what do you expect with the way I feel then?
and what's it with you, tell me what's your problem?
Track Name: IN A SUMMER GARDEN
she loves the life within her
feels part of everywhere
and the breeze begins to whisper
as the flowers open up
unfolding with elation
a rose for the occasion
feels good to welcome summer
and this heatwave of love

danced among the trees
into a summer garden
don't make it rain again
it's all within her reach
with that look in her eyes
and the scent of a smile
calling out his name once more
playing this game of hide and seek
looking for where he hides
in a summer garden

beyond the steps of a bridge
water's running under it
here's her piece of paradise
yes, this day's enough
Track Name: BLIND EYE
I can feel the night time coming
up and down the boulevard
and I'm here, the clock is ticking on
don't stop this earth from moving
all I need's your sweet sweet loving
you give me everything and then more

all the stars and bleeding hearts
don't stop this love we started

chase your dreams
and they'll find you
through stormy waters
truth is all that matters
I've a sweet tooth for you now
and a blind eye for such trouble
don't stop me now
or tie me down
I tell you, baby
I shoot a gun that kinda scatters
You maybe out of reach and I maybe way out of line

you've seen me running around
but I swear I'm trying to slow me down
I've been trying to live my life too fast
ain't started even loving you yet
so don't stop me loving you now
'cos I know I want this time to last
