Track Name: Sword and the Chalice
Sword and the Chalice

Oooohh run run Hal got a loaded gun

What’ll it be when she gets lonely
What I gotta do to flick her switch
Couldn’t I be her one and only
Wicked tongue of mine to scratch her itch
I close my eyes and take the scars
To live one midnight fantasy
I heal the cuts to change my stars
A lake of dreams I pray I see

Come, run to me
Burn, passion free
Turn, knife in me
Sun, her fantasy

A stare in his eyes her wishing well
And I’m his rainbow to the pot of gold
I’ll show him heaven straight from hell
I’ll guide his hand to her heart and soul
Scent bewitched senses ensnared
Chalice of dreams, sword of fears
Twilight dreams, renaissance faire
A waste of time, a waste of tears

Come, run to me
Burn, passion free
Turn, knife in me
Sun, her fantasy

And I still love her now
When all the candles burn out
I just can’t live without
Her love oh I still need her now

Come, run to me
Burn, passion free
Turn, knife in me
Sun, her fantasy
Track Name: Red Kite
Red Kite

Let her in to this heart of mine, a twist or turn or a straight line
I knew her, really knew her
I held her hand through the tears she cried, her daddy’s gone and it just ain’t right
And I held her, really held her
I drew a breath and cast my feelings aside, I said we’ll fix it get it right this time
I said I love you, really love you
I played his words over in my mind, read his letters by the candlelight
Cos I had to, really had to

Fly red kite sky tonight
On broken wings
Fly dream of mine on cloud nine
Played on broken strings

What do you do to a blind man’s heart, do you caress it or tear it apard
Did you love me, really love me
Was your smile just a fool’s disguise, was your twist a blind man’s compromise
And I cried, really I cried
I took nothing gave you everything, it cut me deeply but I let you in
I bled for her, really for her
A stitch in time helps a day go by, I can’t forget no matter how I try
I still need her, really need her

Fly red kite sky tonight
On broken wings
Fly dream of mine on cloud nine
Played on broken strings

They say it gets easier with the ticking of the clock
They say the cuts will heal and the scars will fade
They say the tears will dry with the sands of time
They say the pain will go at the end of the rainbow

Fly red kite sky tonight
On broken wings
Fly dream of mine on cloud nine
Played on broken strings
Track Name: I Wish I Was Someone
I Wish I Was Someone

I feel the hate, I feel the dread,
I feel all this inside my head.
I feel the love, I feel the great,
But even this is overtook by hate.

I want to smile, I want to be free,
But it’s like my own hate won’t let me be.
I want to feel safe, I want to be brave,
But the most I ever feel is scared.

I need to be happy, I need to be true,
I need to be able to see me through you.
I need to be stronger, I need new behaviour,
I need to realise I’m no longer a failure.

I wish I was someone I could start to like,
I wish I was someone who had more sight.
I wish I was someone who could feel free,
I wish I was someone who liked being me.

I know I can change things, I know what to do,
But I can’t do it alone, I need support too.
I know what I want and I know what I feel,
But I need someone beside me to say what is real.

These things will take time and these things will take strength,
But I’m willing to do this no matter the length.
These things are not easy and these things won’t be gone,
But there’s a life out there for me, I just need to learn to move on.

I am someone stronger, I am someone now,
I’ve been changing my life and I know you knew how.
I am someone happy, I am someone good,
I’ve become a new person, who deserves to feel loved.
Track Name: Blue Rainbow
Blue Rainbow


Many times I’d swear I’d never love again
Many times I’d say I’d never give my heart
I ain’t fond of life but I don’t want to die alone
I don’t want to end my days
Livin’ on the street of dreams
Where I don’t want to wake or so it seems


Take my hand together we’ll ride the rainbow
To a pot of gold the colour of the sun
Light the blackest clouds with your blue rainbow
Send a northern star and make us one

I gave my love once to a golden halo
Until the candle no longer lit the night
I need your voice to heal these aging scars
Now when I close my eyes
I see a new angel of mine
And help me find love again in time


Take my hand together we’ll ride the rainbow
To a pot of gold the colour of the sun
Light the blackest clouds with your blue rainbow
Send a northern star and make us one
Track Name: Old Brown Spoon
Old Brown Spoon

Shrink tells me I ain’t crazy
But I ain’t seen my mind this week
Tryin’ to tell my body I ain’t killin myself
But my broken heart just won’t speak

A little magic powder on the old brown spoon
Just to set my shakin’ hand straight
Cookin’ up a high but I’ll be comin’ down soon
I been dancing with the devil, no mistake

Well I’ve been wakin’ to the same old story
With the pages just a little more frayed
I’ve been puttin’ my luck to a loaded dice
reality looks better through a haze

A little magic powder on the old brown spoon
Just to set my shakin’ hand straight
Cookin’ up a high but I’ll be comin’ down soon
I been dancing with the devil, no mistake

Playin’ this old blues guitar
Each note the same as the last
Dance my last dance to the same old tune
Lookin’ at the same old photographs

A little magic powder on the old brown spoon
Just to set my shakin’ hand straight
Cookin’ up a high but I’ll be comin’ down soon
I been dancing with the devil, no mistake
Track Name: For What Tomorrow Never Knows
For What Tomorrow Never Knows

If I, had taken my time, to find the line you still wouldn’t be mine
I, had to take that fall, and make the call, to end it all
I, should’ve read my mind, and seen the signs, end of the line
Not once, did I let myself see, that you weren’t meant for me, I couldn’t let you be
I, saw it in your face, the darkest place, is a blind man’s gaze
Oh, So the legend goes, tomorrow’s ghost, will never know

I remember the night
Letters read by candlelight
Tale of terror he writes
Cold winters night
In paradise
I remember tears
And you’d ask me
But I’d look up and smile
I wouldn’t say why
Alone I cried

If I, had taken my time, to find the line you still wouldn’t be mine
I, had to take that fall, and make the call, to end it all
I, should’ve read my mind, and seen the signs, end of the line
Not once, did I let myself see, that you weren’t meant for me, I couldn’t let you be
I, saw it in your face, the darkest place, is a blind man’s gaze
Oh, So the legend goes, tomorrow’s ghost, will never know


When you walked out
Our front door
Would I ever see you
Back Again
In these arms of mine
How many more times
Could she poison your mind
With mother tongue
Her will be done
My noose be strung


If I, had taken my time, to find the line you still wouldn’t be mine
I, had to take that fall, and make the call, to end it all
I, should’ve read my mind, and seen the signs, end of the line
Not once, did I let myself see, that you weren’t meant for me, I couldn’t let you be
I, saw it in your face, the darkest place, is a blind man’s gaze
Oh, So the legend goes, tomorrow’s ghost, will never know
Track Name: Caledonia
Caledonia

I don't know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
In these last few days I've been afraid
That I might drift away
So I've been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I came from
And that's the reason why I seem
So far away today

Oh, and let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me, and now I'm going home
If I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything, I've ever had

Oh and I have moved and I've kept on moving
Proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing
Found others on the way
Oh and I have tried and kept on trying
Stolen dreams yes there's no denying
I have traveled far with conscience flying
Somewhere with the wind

Oh, and let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me, and now I'm going home
If I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything, I've ever had

Now I'm sitting here before the fire
The empty room, the forest choir
The flames that could not get any higher
They've withered now they've gone
But I'm steady thinking my way is clear
And I know what I will do tomorrow
When the hands are shaken and the kisses flow
Then I will disappear

Oh, and let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me,and now I'm going home
If I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything, I've ever had
Track Name: Restless
Restless

It’s early in the day and time drags on
Make the hours tick away
Please little lady now don’t think like that
Maybe this can be the day
I can lose this thing, get a fling
I’m restless for today

It’s ten and you know I can’t lie still
Just want to lose this feeling
Hey there baby you came to me
Sent my senses reeling
Nerve endings burning, I think I’m learning
I’m restless and you’re dealing

Things went the way they go
On a level just above fine
You know I felt it wasn’t right
Baby we have the time
I’m feeling low do you want to go
I’m restless and you’re mine
It’s ten and you know I can’t lie still
Just want to lose this feeling
Hey there baby you came to me
Sent my senses reeling
Nerve endings burning, I think I’m learning
I’m restless and you’re dealing

You were like a sleeping child
You know I wanted you there
I wanted you both day and night
Beside me everywhere
Lord up above, I need your love
I’m restless and I care
Track Name: Do They Know How the Story Goes
Do They Know How the Story Goes

As season of great joy is once again upon us all I ask is you take a moment this year to remember for every warm loving home someone goes cold and for every life that lights a family’s heart another family is left in darkness...remember them too...remember Christmas is for everyone

Baby in a manger in a stable yard
Virgin mother Mary and she’s travelled far
And we know how that story goes
Shepherd with his flock and he’s searching hard
To bring gifts to the king under the star
But we know how the story goes
He sees a ghostly figure at the foot of his bed
Ghost of Christmas past messin’ with his head
And we know how that story goes
Ebeneezer thought he’d reached the end of his days
Vision said it ain’t too late to change your ways
We know how the story goes

But I don’t think they’ll hang up
A decoration this year
When their only Christmas angel
Is fear

A young harlot cries a river with her lonely tears
As her mother prays to God with her darkest fears
Well do we know how their story goes
An old man’s pain and hunger written in his eyes
An orphan shares his last meal with a smile
Remember you don’t know how his story goes
A lost child cries out to a false messiah
And begs for their family just to stay alive
The papers will tell us how that story goes
So when you hear a fairytale this Christmas eve
Think about forgotten children whisper in their ears
That it’s how their stories should go

Where a black dog is no reindeer
No snowflake hides the night
Spare a single candle
And send them peace
Tonight

But I don’t think they’ll hang up
A decoration this year
When their only Christmas angel
Is fear
Track Name: Derek at Your Back Door
Derek at Your Back Door

Little kid from Holmfirth drinks the day away
He used to have a future but it’s now a whisky haze
But he got himself a pretty girl tried to do right by her
And he tried to tell his story but he couldn’t find the words
Dark secrets of a teacher
Lessons of a preacher

Run
Run to the sun
You’re gonna burn
On the killing floor
At night
When you close your eyes
Can you still see
His wicked disguise
Derek at your back door

A locked door in an attic hides the left hand path
Lead them to temptation with a sexual photograph
They say that it’s a sickness but I don’t think there’s a cure
A twisted crucifix within a mind that once was pure
Your nightmare his fantasy
Your hell his street of dreams

Run
Run to the sun
You’re gonna burn
On the killing floor
At night
When you close your eyes
Can you still see
His wicked disguise
Derek at your back door

A word in the ear of Simon but it won’t cut a deal
They’re gonna send you down I’d say so their scars can heal
You’d be doin’ 25 to life if it was any call of mine
They’re stringing up the noose to make sure you serve your time
You’re living, a lie
They’re gonna hang the gallows high

Run
Run to the sun
You’re gonna burn
On the killing floor
At night
When you close your eyes
Can you still see
His wicked disguise
Derek at your back door
