Destination outward bound I turn to see the northern lights behind the wing Horizons seem to beckon me Learned how to cry too young, so now I live to sing The northern lights are in my mind They guide me back to you Horizons seem to beckon me Learned how to cry too young, so now I live to sing You know it's hard away from you Travelling roads and passing through It's not for money and it's not for fame I just can't explain, sometimes it's lonely Marking the space between the days Early hours pass away I sing to you of northern lights I sing for you of northern nights Past or future, here or there Shelter comes in words from you, so talk to me I hear your voice, it comforts me In morning dreams I take your hand, you walk with me The northern lights are in my mind They guide me back to you Peace enfolds the still night air Home again I look for you and find you there Destination homeward now Take the easy way, bring me down Making the hard way now I see Hard to be really free, I'm missing you near me Marking the space between the days Early hours pass away I sing to you of northern lights I sing for you of northern nights The northern lights are in my mind They guide me back to you The northern nights are in my eyes They guide me back to you The northern lights are in my mind They guide me back to you The northern nights are in my eyes They guide me back to you

Circles 05:46
Why am I Right back here where I started from… again? Where my thoughts Spin with uncertainty and fear… I’m lost Sometimes I wonder How it went so wrong Trying to be strong But darkness consumes me Walking in circles You run into yourself No starting point, no end Just endless returning Here I go again On a beach I’m drawing circles in the sand… with you Holding hands The circles and my tears are swept… away No corner to turn Life is on repeat I won’t admit defeat It’s not over, not over Walking in circles You run into yourself No starting point, no end Just endless returning Here I go again (Instrumental break) In the night I find some peace encircled in… your arms And I know Your love will always be what sees… me through Walking in circles You run into yourself No starting point, no end Just endless returning Here in our circle You take me by the hand And help me understand We’re in this together The circle is turning What has gone, is gone But we can see beyond There’s comfort and healing When I’m here with you Why am I Right back here where I started from

Way before the light I’m waiting by the window Who will be the first The first to break the silence? Who will it be? Who will have their say? The Robin or the Song Thrush Heralding the day The music starts And fills my heart Alone with the new day It fills my heart Behold the chorus As old as time As fresh as new life Taking me back, driving me on Taking the dawn by storm The melodies rise I lean out of the window And if I could do it I’d leave the sill and fly with you My heart is there I’m soaring above the world These moments I’ll keep This joy will not grow old I step through the door I join with you and soar Alone with the new day It fills my heart Behold the chorus As old as time As fresh as new life Taking me back, driving me on Taking the dawn by storm The Starlings, the Warblers and all Knowing that life goes on for us all The greatest time to be alive The gift of living from the skies Oh, alone with the new day It fills my heart Behold the chorus As old as time As fresh as new life This nature’s joy The gift from the skies Wings take flight Voices raised Takes me back, drives me on Forever glad within your song

How do you feel now? Young and lonely in a strange land Like heroes in fables and stories The winds of March will bring winter’s end She’s always smiling When you see her day to day But she’s been crying while you looked the other way She’s often hiding To save you from the pain that she’s been fighting In the most mysterious way She keeps the faith The same humble religious way And lights a candle To a different god she prays She closes her eyes And let her soul drift away Her heart is moved by The same music we praise How do you feel now? Young and lonely in a strange land Like heroes in fables and stories The winds of March will bring winter’s end How do you feel now? How do you feel now? Like heroes in fables and stories Only you can bring winter’s end

Can we walk through these changes And weather the storm It’s out of our hands Not part of a plan It’s out of our control And we don’t know what the future holds We need to hold on tight With all of our might Until the story is told Keep your hope alive Keep your family strong We can see this through We can Brave The Storm Keep your hope alive... Can we see through the headlines And know truth from a lie We need leaders to lead If we’re gonna succeed And get out alive And though we may feel anxiety We can live through the fear Together apart, joined at the heart We’ll see through this year It’s times like these when we all get to see All the different sides of humanity The ones who will care and those that will share And the ones who will show no sympathy So here’s to the future when we all will be Together again laughing with friends surrounded by family...

Love What has love got to do with it? It's got everything to do with it It's a funny thing And love I would love to be through with it But I can not tear away from it It's a funny thing Oh-woah-ooh-woah Each and every day I find reason to stay To be close to you I know even if I died Our love would still survive Cos it's true When love waited for you to come But you never came Could only stand for so long I gave up on the game And love, I know that you're tired And I'm tired too Been working so hard on you But we're not the same Love, love, love, love Sometimes love won't be true to it Can be easier to lie to it It's a funny thing Uh-oh-ooh-woah And love I don't love this domestic shit And I don't know why I put up with it Cos it's not funny anymore No, no, no Each and every night We fight But we both just lose I know no matter what I say You always turn away Tell me what did I do? I've been good to you Lived my life for you Always tried for you Love waited for you to come But you never came Could only stand for so long I gave up on the game And love, I know that you're tired And I'm tired too Been working so hard on you But we're not the same No we're not the same No we're not the same Ain't no one to blame We're just not the same No, no, no No, no, ooh Love What has love got to do with it? It's got everything to do with it It's a funny thing And love I would love to be through with it But I can not tear away from it It's a funny thing No we're not the same (Not the same, not the same, no, no, no) No we're not the same (Baby, who?) Ain't no one to blame We're just not the same (Tell me what did I do?) Love waited for you to come But you never came (But you never came, no, no) Could only stand for so long I gave up (I gave up) I gave up (I gave up) And love, I know that you're tired And I'm tired too Been working so hard on you But we're not the same No we're not the same No we're not the same No we're not the same No we're not the same (Not the same, not the same, no we're not the same) No we're not the same, oh no (Not the same, not the same, no we're not the same, no, no) We're not the same, no, no (Not the same, not the same, no we're not the same) We're not the same (Not the same, not the same) Not the same, not the same, no we're not the same Not the same, not the same, no we're not the same, no, no Not the same, not the same, no we're not the same Not the same, not the same No we're not the same

Larkspur 07:53
How the larkspur begins to grow before the settled sediment can mend the yesteryear? How the leaf and petal yet can sing when wilting go the passers by who linger here? How could the willow sigh, for me today? How could you pause nothing at all? Between my heart and all the grass beyond a garden wall are better pastures trodden in pursuit of being promised more; Between the lights are cast the trees I fell - so grow the days In seeking out a question, I’ve cut the wood to line my grave. I mapped the path I took here but never marked my home in haste. How the blackwood hymnal sets a tone, so measured by significance to each and every tepid soul? How the ground might swell with time’s repast, soon reckoned to its starting form and by the grey stone marked. How could the willow sigh, for me today? How could you pause nothing at all? Between the life I could’ve settled for, and the one chosen am I caught and drawn, so quartered in decisions old? Between the plots of unfamiliar forms, so do I walk to see the bloom in full and question steps I took before. I mapped the path I travelled by but never found a home at all. Never, never How could the willow sigh, for me today? How could you pause nothing at all?

I feel your light It's drawing near I see your light As you appear And I know you can't stay Through the night So take your flight I need the strength to be alone I try to turn the darkness into light So even if I can't escape out of the cold I will choose life So fly
