ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1. Time was a Friend

So,
So we know you’re a star,
With only wings to fly, the brightest sky,
You reach for things afar,

Home,
Is home just a thought away?
When you’re down below, the deepest hole,
In need of a warm embrace,

Who’s to know?
Where the wind might blow again?
So take me back,
To when time was a friend,

Slow,
Were you slow to replace,
The life you’d known, the greatest show,
With one that flows with grace,

So,
So we know you’re a star now,
With wings that shine, a tone sublime,
Yet you reach for things afar,

Who’s to know?
Where the wind might blow again?
So take me back,

To when time was a friend.

2. Real Love

Sometimes on the swings,
We’d fly,
The stars came falling down,
Like mother said they would!

Sometimes around the groves,
We’d run,
Soft laughter filled the stillness ,
On those long somber nights,

So how about a longer stay?
Is this real love,
Or is this all a dream?
Is this all a dream?

Somehow we’re the same,
Won’t you say?
Different colours, the same picture,
Little pearls on a leaf,

Sometimes what we seek,
We find,
A symmetry better unspoken,
A feeling undefined,

So how about a longer stay?
Is this real love,
Or is this all a dream?
Is this all a dream?

Some days seem a blur,
For we float,
With nothing more to escape from,
Nothing more to prove,
Some day we will climb,
These stars,
To once again blink and flicker,
Be dust in the sky,

So how about a longer stay?
Is this real love,
Or is this all a dream?
Is this all a dream?

3. She’s Insane

She's insane, 
Her words have changed,
Seemed the good vibrations,
Were here to stay,
She's on about the weather,
All that she needs,
From this life is more,

She's insane,
Her deal has changed,
Plays an old worn tambourine,
Out on my porch,
She's singing from a letter,
All that she needs,
From that trip is more,

She's insane,
Her scene has changed,
Dreamy colours and shapes,
Her only escape,
But more than just familiar,
Are strawberry fields,
In those beady eyes.

She's insane, 
Her words have changed,
Seemed the good vibrations,
Were here to stay,
She's speaking to the flowers,
All that she needs,
From that trip is more!

But isn't it strange how,
People just change,
And isn't it strange,
Its funny how people change,
Just like that,

So long my friend,
Just pour me some more,
Of that Mexican wine,
Cos we've been laughing like strangers,
When all we need,
Is love, and a little more time,

But isn't it strange how,
People just change,
And isn't it strange,
Its funny how people change,
Just like that,

So long my friend,
Just pour me some more,
Of that Mexican wine,
Cos we've been laughing like strangers,
When all we need,
Is love, and a little more time.

4. Higher Ground

They tell me times are changing,
I’m on my way to the sun,
They were starting to feel it,
We were reaching for a higher ground,

They see me searching for something,
I’m singing aloud in the sun,
Let’s be there for each other,
Till we’re flowing to a better sound,

We’re going to need that higher ground,
We’re going to reach that higher ground!

5. Lonely Traveler

Listen to those trees,
Whispering secrets of old,
The wind is only a whistle,
Scattering softly, the leaves all around,

There's a peace in the warmth,
Painting this radiant noon,
There's a man in the middle,
Ragged and torn from a journey untold,

He's a little afraid,
For he was told of the souls,
Floating through the meadow,
Only a few know they mean no harm,

There's a moon that appears,
Over the hills with a smile,
Creatures sing in the shadows,
Bringing the shimmering forest to life,

Fell the lonely traveler,
From the pleasures and grace he'd known,
For a better tomorrow,
Run away from all that you are and follow,
Riddled by his problems,
He's cursing the stars above,
Winking down at his sorrow,

Run away from all that you are and follow.

6. TWIMC

Hello there,
Is it time now?
For streams and rainbows,
To pass me by,

Is there no hope for truce?
Or a prayer divine?
Have we no time to waste?
Or no time to find?
Is there no room for love?
Or was it a seed,
That just needed time to grow?
Some time to grow,

Hello there,
Is it time now?
For rivers to run through,
And brace the sea,

Is there no hope for truth?
Or a song to find?
Have we a war to wage?
Or a world to blind?
Is there no room for love?
Or was it a bird,
That just needed time to fly?
Some time to fly,

Is there no hope for truce?
Or a prayer divine?
Have we no time to waste?
Or no time to find?
Is there no room for love?
Or was it a seed,
That just needed time to grow?

Some time to grow...

7. Rhapsody

The scene reveals a night through a bedroom window,
From a time when she was young,
And the streets bloomed wild,
The circus plays a kaleidoscope of illusions,
Like a rainbow spinning insane,
Over and over again,

The pills that she swallows,
Are more than she hides,
As she falls to the floor,
The pills that she swallows,
Are more than she hides,
As she falls to the floor,

Singing ‘Don’t you wait for the whistle to blow now!’
What’s the time outside?
Have your worries passed you by?
‘Don’t you wait for the whistle to blow now!’
What’s the time outside?
May your perils pass you by,

She meets the man with the limp for a brand new illusion,
‘You would need just one to fly!’
He says with a crooked smile,
And places three in her hand,
She nods with a whisper,
As the same old words resound,
‘Never again, never again, never again, never again!’

The pills that she swallows,
Are more than she hides,
As she falls to the floor,
The pills that she swallows,
Are more than she hides,
As she falls to the floor,

Singing ‘Don’t you wait for the whistle to blow now!’
What’s the time outside?
Have your worries passed you by?
Singing ‘Don’t you wait for the whistle to blow now!’
What’s the time outside?

May your perils pass you by.

8. Something Out There

She walks out the doorway,
A butterfly, a spaceship in flight,
See her reaching high,
Cinnamon in springtime,
A fragrance, a film with no sound,
See the marquee shine!

She’s like a song,
Full of secrets inside,
But I know, there’s something out there,
She’s just a maze,
Wish I was inside,
But I know, there’s something out there,

She plays empty ballrooms,
A photograph, a cellophane disguise,
Her bittersweet reprise,
Silhouettes on crossroads,
Make for a simpler way to find,
An old friend of mine,

She’s like a song,
Full of secrets inside,
But I know, there’s something out there,
She’s just a maze,
Wish I was inside,
But I know,

There’s something out there...
