Glowing 03:47
See this bright white star Growing nearer, watch it come Feel the bright night star From a distance Feel it reach In the dark corner of your mind Glowing colour Sure to find you See this wide open space Filling up with colours wild Watch the wide open place Acclimatise and find a view Inside a bright corner of my mind Glows a colour Have to find you Listening to the dreamscape clouds Reading books to you out-loud Learning tricks I never knew Glow, it’s where we are just now Just for now Just for now Touch the bright white star While it’s nearer than the sun Stare at the bright night star No distance let it reach into The dark corners of your mind Glowing colours let it find you See it as a wide open space Filled up with colours wild See it a wide open place No distance find your view Inside this bright corner of my mind Glowing colour Where I find you… … now I’ve found you

Megan Rose, Megan Rose, Megan rose from the dead And said nothing but she rose from the dead... And she cried, oh she cried "I have died" Megan Rose, Megan Rose, and she chose to stand by my bed Saying nothing, but she rose from the dead... And she cried, oh how she wailed "I have died, I have died" Then she gave me a kiss and she left me a gift of a rose that grows where she died And the kiss that she gave sent me to my grave And forever I lie with Megan Rose Now we cry, oh we wail "We have died" How we cry, how we wail "We have died, we have died"

I fell for a marriage breaker pair of eyes with a smile to match I started telling lies Months went by I got in a game Heard their voice I had to know their name Nothing mattered had to see them again Think of any way, every day and anything just to be with them Fall for a marriage breaker pair of eyes with a smile to match You start telling lies Years go by, decades in… I heard your voice We know our names Nothing matters we’re with them again Each and every way, every day in anything Just to be with them Just to be with them

It's years since last we met,
 And we may not meet again.
 I have struggled to forget
 But the struggle was in vain.
 For your voice lives on the breeze, 
And your spirit comes at will, In the midnight on the seas
 Your bright smile haunts me still. At the first sweet dawn of light,
 When I gaze upon the deep,
 Your form still greets my sight
 While the stars their vigil keep.
 When I close my aching eyes
 Sweet dreams my senses fill,
 And from sleep when I arise 
Your bright smile haunts me still. I have sailed 'neath alien skies,
 And I've trod the desert path, 
I have seen the storm arise 
Like a giant in his wrath. 
Every danger I have known
 That a reckless life can fill,
 Yet, your presence is not flown, 
Your bright smile haunts me still.

about

"beautiful yet austere desolation"
"the only fitting sound when there are no words left to say" - Nightshift

"a haunting, yet beautiful melancholy underpins this record"
"truly an album to get lost in" - Oxfordshire Music Scene

A most personal collection of songs and instrumentals.

An attempt to express my deepest thoughts and come to terms with feelings, brought to the fore witnessing the passing of my mother over an intensely long drawn out period of time.

The instrumentals are a portrayal of a keen sense of time that came to bear down on everyone in my family and those close friends who had known my mother, some since she was very young. They are also an attempt to conjure a feeling of creeping paralysis to direct the conscious mind to reflect on being alive but only able to receive sense, gradually losing all ability to interact with the word.

The songs are in some way a release from a fierceness of grief felt in the lead up to the death of a loved one. Lyrically, they move from the sense of hope and positivity found in believing in a better future; through reflections on longing, loss reaching total despair; to a sense of resolution and acceptance.
