April Bloom

April bloom never arrived
I was left dry
Hoping for regeneration
But my seeds had all but died

I longed to be swept away
By the shifting sands
To be freed by roaring winds
To forget who I am

As everything lay so still
Silently wilting away

Dusk arrived and took a hold
Pushing the sun down
Red turned black
The freezing air
I fell to ground

As everything lay so still
Silently wilting away

April bloom never arrived
So I look within
To live the year in seasons
Without changing
 

I’ll Forget You

I left you out
Inside my heart
How easily
This could be the start
And rip my life apart

Like a bowerbird collecting blue
See me gather words
To let you know
It’s hard to let this go

But I’m making up my mind
I’ll forget you in time

You still make me cry
Like a song of the east
That loses its centre
But always finds its way back home
How this bird has flown

So I’m making up my mind
Gonna rescue myself tonight
Yeah I’m making up my mind
I’ll forget you in time

I am leaving you
You are leaving me
We’ve sung our song
And we chose to roll on
Although this lust never fades
It’s time to forget the road we never travelled along

So I’ve made up my mind
Gonna rescue myself tonight
Yeah I’ve made up my mind
I’ll forget you in time
 
 

Corner of an Endless Road

I’m living in a shoebox on the corner of an endless road
This city is as lonely as traffic
I’m trying to get a hold 

All my life
I’ve been floating like a kite
Twisting and turning in the wind
And I just might be ready to come down
So I will fight to make you my ground

Waking up to an inch of sunlight
And another dream that’s over
Yeah I do what I want
But it never fills the hole of being sober

All my life
I’ve been floating like a kite
Twisting and turning in the wind
And I just might be ready to come down
So I will fight to make you my ground

The leaves fly right past my window
To introduce the rain
There is nothing more here for me
In the cold embrace of the parade

Cos’ all my life
I’ve been floating like a kite
Twisting and turning in the wind
And I just might be ready to come down
So I will fight to make you my ground

Sleeping in the Rain

Sleeping in the rain
Naked in the cage of an easy smile
How does a stitched up man
Come to understand if he’s worth his while
You’re losing feeling
You’re losing touch
So it never seems to be enough
Still you make it look so easy

Dressed in a rainbow shell
Trying to run the miracle mile
But a lonely heart eventually runs out of style

You get caught out with your lonely eyes
And lose that perfect disguise
How come nobody ever gives you what you truly desire
Hold yourself up to the light
Stop driving it away    

Curled up to a cigarette
The drag is getting harder and faster
Moving from door to door
Trying to forget all the answers
But every fence that you avoid
Keeps you from finding your way home
As the lights go down on forever

You get caught out with your lonely eyes
And lose that perfect disguise
How come nobody ever gives you what you truly desire
Hold yourself up to the light
Stop driving it away    

Sleeping in the rain
Why you sleeping in the rain
 

Heal Me

Why do we turn our backs on each other
Are we not strong enough
We can’t heal our wounds
So we bleed in the dark
How many times have we broken down
On this tired and familiar road
Cos’ we never stopped to figure out what’s wrong

Heal me

Love is a roof made out of leaves
And I bask in your shade
But all shelter is lost when it rains
Skipping the puddles with nowhere to move
When drops become a lake
Stranded in your garden I can’t find the gate

Heal me

So no more dragging each other through the mud
We’ve been keeping score for much too long
Trying to see which one of us is wrong

We build a city of steel
Looking at a pink sky above
You said you want to catch the sunset
While we’re still in love
Well I don’t want to look at these structures
And feel nothing but terrifed
I don’t ever want to forget why we tried

Heal me
 
 

Lost in You

I get lost in you
Like a prisoner walking towards the ocean
It’s hard to imagine how something could swallow you whole

I get lost in you
Pearls in your eyes
Keep me alive
Wrap me in a glow
Soft as a shadow

There was a time I would suffer in silence
And feel like my pain didn’t matter
I thought
Keep on walking
Just show your devotion
They don’t know you at all 

And I grew thorns as sharp as spears
I drowned my fears with books and with beer
At a time there was time but no horizon

I am lost in you
I am no longer searching
I’m no longer yearning
Just learning
The freedom of floating on

 
Burst Your Bubble


Hey it’s good to see you looking so well
Just letting the breeze carry you away
But I’m feeling a little uncomfortable I must say
These ain’t the winds of change
That keep us moving
You and I are drifting into a bed
That will sink in the sand
Should we rest our head 

Cos we’ve got to look after each other
This ain’t the way it’s supposed to be
One man’s hurt should be another man’s problem
I’m sure you agree

This ain’t gonna just go away
I don’t mean to burst your bubble
But seriously

So let’s not drown our senses
With elegance and lullabies
Trick is we’ve got to stay awake
Between the waves
That push and pull
But You and I
Can keep ourselves from going under
This is a call out to the strong the frail
Come on
Help this train derail

Cos we’ve got to look after each other
This ain’t the way it’s supposed to be
One man’s hurt should be another man’s problem
I’m sure you agree

This ain’t gonna just go away
I don’t mean to burst your bubble
But seriously

This ain’t gonna just disappear
I don’t mean to burst your bubble
But we need you here


Sonja 

Well it only took a question to bring tears to her eyes
And the gates they slipped only to reveal the flood that lay inside
She’s doing her best to stay composed
While I think to myself
It’s been a long winter

She tells me of life in a faded land
How her folks are getting old
On the phone their voice sounds tired
They’re disappointed she ain’t home

Sonja
You made me feel what I’d been missing for so long
And you don’t even know your tears are a song 

She folds away a young man’s clothes
And the verses they roll on
As the memories become visions that in turn will keep her strong 

Sonja
You made me feel what I’d been missing for so long
And you don’t even know your tears are a song

You were needed now
More than ever
Sing to me my simple queen
A song of how I used to be
Have you come to wash away these aimless melodies
Sing to me a song of how I used to be
Do I remember how to dream like you honestly
 

Jerusalem

Jesse tell me what its like
When the earth stops turning
Where do you go
When stars drop like snow
And leave you a dark and infinite sky

Can you see the light of day
Is there a window in there
Does it hurt when you’re alone
Do you see his lifeless face everywhere that you turn

Jesse says
Jerusalem has fallen
What I held eternal just crumbled away
And though my days are a silhouette
I know that beyond the rubble
The boundless sea awaits

Somewhere out there in the universe
Lie the answers for which we search
How do you move on
When your love won’t return    
And make you forget we are oh so small

Jesse says
Jerusalem has fallen
What I held eternal just crumbled away
And though my days are a silhouette
I know that beyond the rubble
The boundless sea awaits

Jesse’s lost the eyes
That he held as a child
No he’s not afraid
His courage gets me down

 
Take the Sting Out

Lately we ain’t been communicating
Beyond what needs to be said and done
Short sharp words like arrows
That pierce our skin and let the poison run
You’re showing no emotion
I don’t think it’s noble to be proud
We take it for granted that we love each other
But can’t bring ourselves to say it out loud

I hope we find a way to take the sting out

Yesterday we were driving through an echo of silence
I had to turn the radio on
Standing frozen on the edge of the rocks looking down
Both of us afraid to take a dive
And when I finally tried
To break the surface nice and slow
The fall was clumsy
I wanted out
How come you would not throw me a rope

I hope we help each other cope

I want to talk to you without making excuses
Or putting on a mask because I feel ashamed
Want you to hear me out
Not make a judgement call
You know you used to be that kind of friend
So show me some emotion
We both know it’s been too long

I hope we find the connection that made us strong


 

The Safety of Distance

It won’t bring back lovers and friends
But it might make for a happier end

There is hope in the land of ruins
In the village of old enemies
Who have come to join hands
For they share the knowledge
Compassion is the measure of a man 

It won’t bring back lovers and friends
But it might make for a happier end

And all the colours will return to these hills
Where the dust of despair takes a hold
One day they will drink from these now stale waters
Where there’s a will there’s a road 

It won’t bring back lovers and friends
But it might make for a happier end
Compassion is the measure of a man
