I did not hear the silence creep in I could not stop the emptiness surrounding Turn my back against the wall I would not take my eyes away from watching There was once a time when I couldn’t separate your voice from mine Run but couldn’t hide Tried to build the world by my own design You always find me When I hear the warning sirens calling Far away - far away - I hear you calling out my name When I feel the ground beneath me trembling My feet can’t stand on this familiar ground I will run straight into the eye of the storm We were one in the same always searching for someone else to take the blame I would hang upon every word you say Now I don’t listen when you call my name Precious energy - I feel it galvanising me Perfect clarity - there’s nothing left that can distract me now I don’t listen when you call my name Golden intention - shout it every single day Fix my direction - there’s nothing left that can distract me now I don’t listen when you call my name

I used to count the time - since I last saw you Since I last spoke your name I turn the pages brittle with age And I memorise each word the ink and the space Each time I hope for a different end But there’s nothing new here - I'm searching - it's unclear I make a space for you Send the messenger - deliver - deliver You watch me - watch me kneeling on the ground - my hands in the dirt The overgrowth - but I can’t find you here How long - how long I wish for the spring - tend the ground I’m summoning - wild flowers in to bloom And I’m - hoping - you’ll see - I’m listening - speak to me I make a space for you Send the messenger - deliver - deliver The rain it fell without a sound The sun it broke on through the clouds The sky fills with colour and I see much more now And I know it - you’ll see - I listen - you speak to me I make a space for you Send the messenger - deliver - deliver

It’s double edged - a blessing and a curse rolled in to one It’s comforting - silent secrets stored in my skin and bones Be still - be still - be still the water’s rising Hold on - hold on - hold on the banks are breaking I knew this day would come - river runs high Where once the land was barren - once the valley dry There’s healing in these waters - transform my life So quietly - I dare to dive into the darkest depths Before I know - I’m covered by the current’s cool caress Listen - listen - listen it’s just my heartbeat Faster - faster I knew this day would come - river runs high Where once the land was barren - once the valley dry There’s healing in these waters - transform Feel the raging force it quenches my thirsty soul Carves a new way through what once was hard as stone And I will not be fearful anymore I concede - I can’t contain Just wash away the past it binds like chains I never gave up hope - ‘cause all this time I knew this day would come river runs high Where once the land was barren - once the valley dry There’s healing in these waters - transform my life

The Mirror 04:43
Man I swear she stares into my soul With eyes wide open And a smile so wide for show It takes all that I have just to try not and turn around Try to face the facts But there’s no sound I’ve found this place Where nothing is quite as it seems And it’s so cold to the touch So cold to the touch VERSE 2 Covered in dust after years of neglect And I run my fingers ‘round the edges And I want things to be different now So I start with the slate clean but that voice soon creeps in You’re still looking! What you looking for? Nothing’s changed! I’ve found this place Where nothing is quite as it seems And it’s so cold to the touch So cold to the touch If what I see isn’t how I really feel Then how do I know which is real? If what I see isn’t how I really feel Then how do I know which is real? And if what I see - if what I see isn’t how I really feel Well how do I know which is real? ‘Cause I’ve found this place Where nothing is quite as it seems And it’s so cold to the touch So cold to the touch If what I see isn’t how I really feel Then how do I know which is real?

No Control 03:59
When I wait for the mist to rise As it lingers all I know is in disguise Every breath of the breeze clears the skies I might see it all When I wait for quiet stillness to come I am shaken by the storm winds to the bone Raise my hands to my heart - I am home I might feel it all I can’t stop the time - I can make the space Just as day surrounds the night you know that everything must change I can find the strength - if I let myself breathe When I wait beside the fire it will burn While it rages I know hope will return Leaving traces here - in the scorched earth - help me see it all When I wait by the sea the tide will turn Watch the moon as she fades and then return All these phases and ellipses we’ve traced for ages affirm Help me see it all I can’t stop the time - I can make the space Just as day surrounds the night you know that everything must change I can find the strength - if I let myself breathe Learn from all there is to know and search out all there is to see And if I might let go I find I’ve no control Just as day surrounds the night you know that everything must change If I might let go - I find I’ve no control Just as day surrounds the night you know that everything must change If I might let go - I find I’ve no control I can’t stop the time but I can make the space Just as day surrounds the night you know that everything must change I can find the strength - if I let myself breathe Learn from all there is to know and search out all there is to see And if I might let go I find I’ve no control

The Swan 05:22
Water clear as glass Longer shadows cast Meet me at the bridge Hear the river sings Softly beating wings Meet me at the bridge In the dreaming - in the half light - in the intention In the longing - in the heart space - in anticipation In the feeling - in the knowing - is transformation You can’t see changes one day at a time Days turn to years in the blink of an eye When the storm winds blow When the drought stops flow Meet me at the bridge In the dreaming - in the half light - in the intention In the longing - in the heart space - in anticipation In the feeling - in the knowing - is transformation You can’t see changes one day at a time Days turn to years in the blink of an eye In the dreaming - in the half light - in the intention In the longing - in the heart space - in anticipation In the feeling - in the knowing - is transformation Follow me downstream And when the river starts widening We’ll fly We’ll fly - follow me We’ll fly - follow me We’ll fly - follow me We’ll fly - follow me We’ll fly
