Track Name: Sunken Ship (held beneath the waves)
Sunken Ship (held beneath the waves)

Life like a furrowed field to the plough
Reveals the journey travelled up to now
Each twist and turn of the creases in the brow
Memories of the curtains final bow

Stories shared and handed down
Listen carefully to each sound
For Time plans to steal them to their graves
In the sunken ship held beneath the waves

“Please stop by again just to check and say ~ hello
If you have the time before you go
I’ve stories to tell you of how I met my Joe
The man I loved and couldn’t bare to let go”

The photographs hung upon the wall
Happy days captured recall
Time plans to steal them to their graves
In the sunken ship held beneath the waves

Lend a shell to every sound
To the yarns spun handed down
Now shared, no more confined to watery graves
Of the sunken ships held beneath the waves
Track Name: A Little Light
A Little Light

You keep on getting shipwrecked
crushed underneath the wave
It only lasts a moment
but it winds you all the same
Step back from the canvas
to bring it back into line
Help is at hand
just put yours in mine

Spread a little love
and shed a little light
Flick the switch and ditch the doubt
and leave it with the night

You’ve packed your head full of dreams
that make you smile in the night
But in the morning when you wake
they disappear with the light
So you grab at a moment’s freedom
to create a head space
Riding on your bike with the wind
lapping like a dog at your face

Learn to spread a little love
and shed a little light
Flick the switch and ditch the doubt
and leave it with the night
