Hassles Close to haunting, touching upon the surreal, the simplicity, the voice, the tastefulness & the way it carries me somewhere.

about

I wish to offer the Album in service of those who are putting their lives on the line at Standing Rock. I send my songs out as a prayer to you.

May we learn from your example what it is to take care of the earth and eachother.

Track Name: Faith
Faith is the bird that sings to the dawn
when it's still dark
I know you must feel so alone right now
but don't give up
'cos love is a bird in my heart
and she sings for you, even though we're apart

so don't give up,
don't give up on love.
'cos the light in your heart
will guide you through the dark
the light in your heart
will guide you through..
Track Name: Slowly Turning
Sometimes love comes crashing through,
and it burns away everything, you thought you were, you thought you knew
and sometimes love, comes creeping in,
like the first autumn leaves, slowly..
turning
my heart towards you
slowly, turning...my heart towards you

Some times love comes and break down your door
but i've been looking through the windows of you soul, and i am sure
this depth i feel inside
when you hold my gaze i cannot..
hide
my love from you
i can't hide... my love from you

Sometimes love comes creeping in,
like the first autumn leaves, slowly
turning...
Track Name: Searching in the Dark
We've all been searching in the dark,
for our light, for our spark


Its all just in your head he said,
heaven is a state of mind, hell is a place you find
yourself in, when you're looking out instead of in
you won't find yourself where you've been looking...

We've all been searching in the dark,
for our light, for our spark

There may be dark times ahead
so take care of your heart and don't take heed of your head
Set alight your soul and burn it bright and burn it bold
for the others, for the others to follow...


'cos we've all been searching in the dark,
for our light, for our spark
We've all been searching in the dark,
for our light, for our spark
Track Name: I See You
I see you staring back at me
and all i see is beauty.

And i don't want you to know
but i don't want to let you go..

I see you staring back at me
and all i see is beauty

And i want you to know
that i wont ever let you go....

'cos i see you staring back at me
and all i see is beauty.
Track Name: The Child
Sometimes the child in him would wake in the night
and he'd pull my arms around him, to hold him tight but
hush now my dear, you're so much stronger than your fears,
noones going to hurt you now that im here

And there were so many years i was not close, not even near
and all i knew how to do was push you away
but so many years have pased and now i feel at last
that i can hold you again
and i sing..
hush now my dear, you're so much stronger than your fears,
noones going to hurt you now that im here

Sometimes the child in me she'd wake in the night,
and i'd want your arms around me, to hold me tight but
hush now my dear, you're so much stronger than your fears,
noones going to hurt you now that im here
Track Name: Eyes Wide Open
We came with our eyes closed, and our hand were open
we came with our eyes closed, and our minds were open
somewhere along the way with our eyes open
we forgot what it was to see clearly with our heart open

With eyes open....

We all want to be like children again, with our hearts open
we all want to be free again with out minds wide open
can you still be, can you still see me, with your eyes open
all the years gone by, did they take your sight? and leave you broken?

With eyes open....

Can you still be, can you still see me with your eyes open
can you still be, can you still see me with your mind open
can you still be, can you still see me with your heart open
Track Name: The Poet
Won't you lay me down, come my darling don't make a sound
won't you lay me down, come my darling don't make a sound

You drink and you drink all your poetry dry
and i hang on your words though i don't know why...

One last night and one last fight to keep this fire burning
but we both know, just like embers in the snow
we will be cold, in the morning

Won't you lay me down, come my darling don't make a sound
won't you lay me down, come my darling don't make a sound

You drink and you drink all your poetry dry
and i hang on your words though i don't know why...

Won't you lay me down, come my darling don't make a sound
Track Name: Spring
You say why don't we just stay in bed all day
and we can get up by moonlight and go walking down by the lake

well i feel like a sapling, you are like the sun..
oh my dear what have we started,
what have we begun?

'cos it feels like spring in my heart
even though outside the snow's about to start
falling...

im falling...
Track Name: Beggars
When i came to your door
i felt like a beggar with nothing to offer
and i leave much as i came
empty handed and a child again

and if it's not given we steal
to make a little love our meal
so fill your empty belly, flll your cup
for your hungry soul will never get enough

we are all beggars here, my dear
and i am just like you
we who follow the light
with nothing else to hold on to

when you came to my door
you said you felt you had nothing to offer
but let us share what little we have
i would give it all away from the promise of a love
to light my way

and the world has stripped you down to your soul
and you were just searching for someone to hold
and the world had stripped you down, and on your knees
you were begging please love me, please

we are all beggars here my dear
and i am just like you
we who follow the light
with nothing else to hold on to
Track Name: Layers
All these layers,
thought i was naked but there's more
beneath the surface
what am i hiding for

and we are all looking for a light,
but we think it's out of reach, but we think it's out of sight
but it's beneath our skin
and it's glowing..

All these masks we wear,
but what are we hiding for,
beneath our surface,
we're so much more

and we are all looking for a light,
but we think it's out of reach, but we think it's out of sight
but it's beneath our skin
and it's glowing..

All this shame we bear
what do we bear it for
beneath our surface we're so much more

And it may take me a life time
to shed what is not mine...
it may take me a lifetime
to shed what is not mine

All these layers,
thought i was naked but there's more
beneath my surface
what am i hiding for...

and we are all looking for a light,
but we think it's out of reach, but we think it's out of sight
but it's beneath our skin
and it's glowing..

All these layers...
what are we hiding for...
all these layers,
what are we hiding for...
what are we hiding for.
Track Name: Flow Through Me
Some days i walk down, to the water edge
and i tread so heavy, with the thoughts inside my head

'cos you're there and i'm here
nowhere seems close, nowhere seems near

Some days i wander lonely, as a cloud in the sky
some days i wish i... could just float on by

Wont you flow through me
like the open sea
till there's nothing left of you
till there's nothing of me
