Track Name: Maybe Not Today.../Skin & Bone
Maybe Not Today...

In the shadows blinding light
Touching down from a lonesome flight
Keep on searching lost my sight
In my dreams I'm awake tonight

I just expect to see you standing
Somewhere
Anywhere

Skin & Bone

Set a new precedent clambered out west
Made the choice to leave a heart once loved
Ripped apart a legacy
And took my pain overseas

Read an old President's final address
And I realised that our words resound
Never thought I'd get this low
But I would never let it show

Can't let it go
I remember landing knee deep in the snow
16 years so much I didn't know
And after all we've done do we even grow
Besides skin and bone?

Am I really home?

I caught the train drunk with a couple of friends
And ended up in Washington Square Park
Met a girl and left here there
Told her I'll be back I swear

But that's where these trips have been destined to end
My dreams are living seven seas apart
And I miss you still and no
I've never felt so alone

Can't let it go
I remember seeing your face through the snow
21 so much I didn't know
And after all we say do we even grow
Besides skin and bone?

Am I really home?

And will i know?
When I go
Will it still show?

Can't let it go
I remember writing these words in the snow
22 so much I still don't know
And after all we say and do we don't grow
Besides skin and bone

I'm not really home.
Track Name: Sierra
Sierra
I'm growing tired
I keep driving back to you
And your hands are so cold

Long walk back
To the land that I grew from
Feels like I'm seeing through
All the stories we're told

And I'm a liar at heart
Every fire I start
Ends in smoke
I can't see your face

I'm surviving the part
Where my mind breaks my heart
Can't relate
And I don't know my fate

But all of my heroes have sung about the blues
I keep imagining my friends meeting you
Proud of places I've seen
Not so much of who I've been
Can't remember my dreams so they won't come true

Got foundations from blood I heal, I grow
But I still end up in territories unknown
Feels like I'm letting you down
But one day I'll make you proud
Keep my feet on the ground and I'll let this go

As a child
I would sleep never fearing
The way that these forests grow
Til the path can't be seen

But now I run
Cos I'm lost here and losing
Any sense of a place to go
I can't hide in my dreams

And I'm a liar at heart
Every fire I start
Ends in smoke
I can't see your face

I'm surviving the part
Where my mind breaks my heart
Can't relate
And I don't know my fate

But all of my heroes have sung about the blues
I keep imagining my friends meeting you
Proud of places I've seen
Not so much of who I've been
Can't remember my dreams so they won't come true

Got foundations from blood I heal, I grow
But I still end up in territories unknown
Feels like I'm letting you down
But one day I'll make you proud
Keep my feet on the ground and I'll let this go

And I've got a family whose love has kept me safe
For 22 years despite my jaded ways
Got a circle of friends who I would kill for and then
I've seen some eyes that are warmer than words can say

Sad to say
That I still miss them everyday
Still I know
That one day I'll be okay
Track Name: Over Winter
Make it work
Spill all your words, get some blood on your shirt
It's getting so cold in the Highlands again
Frost on the grounds and the ink in my pen
Its writings are sounding contrived

It's true
Would you believe that I'm messy too?
Not in a mumblecore kind of way
But more like the sky on a stormy day
It rains then it stops and it dries

Slow these thoughts down
We are only beginners
On a path unsure
But I think over winter we'll feel it more
Take the fall

But keep your words proud
We can moan and be bitter
When we're 84
But until the leaves wither on your heart's front porch
Take the fall

Best believe
At points you would seem like an Autumn leaf
Restless and gentle a sight to be seen
Destined for something beyond the sea
But cut me off there if I'm wrong

And now
There's friends of mine living on English grounds
Caution has flown and the wind is fast
Still remember when we sung here last
We'll drive back again before long

Slow these thoughts down
We are only beginners
On a path unsure
But I think over winter we'll feel it more
Take the fall

But keep your words proud
We can moan and be bitter
When we're 84
But until the leaves wither on your heart's front porch
Take the fall

And sail the passage north
Skin your knee on every hill you climb
And when we reach the shore
I'll be there to compare your scars with mine
Track Name: Kids
Run down on a rainy day
Hope you know what I mean when I say
I still miss the way

When it feels like you're just out at sea
Slowly drifting away
Say come May reach the bay

We were only kids when you left
But since then we bonded and grew
So one day when our kids fly the nest
They will leave here with stories of you
And the love that we knew

So carve the willow from the tallest tree
With our friends hand in hand we could hear
Your voice it was clear

And we reply as a family
So your light never fades always near
Not to fear


We were only kids when you left
But since then we bonded and grew
So one day when our kids fly the nest
They will leave here with stories of you
And the love that we knew
