Track Name: vast majestic
verse 1:
red suns and red skies abound
something's still calling me now
set sail and it won't be long

chorus:
i wanna be by the seaside
and i wanna watch these cares wash away!
lose myself in its mysteries
i wanna feel something magical today

verse 2:
someday and it won't be long
i'll be back home again in your arms
but for now i just have to go roam

chorus:
i wanna be by the seaside
and i wanna watch these cares wash away
i don't care where we're going
theres nothing you can say to make me stay

solo:
bridge:
sometimes when its late at night
and when the waves are calm
you can see every star in the sky

north stars and northern lights
neptune dreams and mermaid eyes
home can be wherever we roam

sunny days idyllic nights
midsummer dreams are burning bright
we’re a thousand miles from home

Right back into the 3rd/last verse:
someday and it won’t be long
i’ll be back home again in your arms
for now I just have to go roam

chorus:
i wanna be by the seaside
and i wanna watch my cares wash away!
lose myself in its mysteries
i wanna feel something magical today

intro

Track Name: star crossed
Verse 1:

Wanting, falling and drifting
Chasing each other through different lives
Stories unfold each one different
Crossing paths when the moment is right

Chorus:

Bounding together through time
Star crossed hearts intertwined
Non challance be divine
Thing’s will fall in line

Verse 2:

Fire, heartbreak and shadow
A thousand scenes frozen in time
Longing, lifetimes of waiting
Disappear with a glance and a touch

Chorus:

Bounding together through time
Star crossed hearts intertwined
Non challance be divine
Thing’s will fall in line

(instrumental again then chorus… end)
Track Name: heart attack
its a slow heart attack
its a slow heart attack
its a slow heart attack
giving me a slow heart attack

miss you when you're not around
see your face all over town
told you then i'll tell you now
love you always anyhow
Track Name: maelstrom
in the shadows they roam
felt but not seen
lost secrets they hold
what sites we can see

echoes long gone
a strange and dark scene
paths have been crossed
hear the spirits that bleed
Track Name: mirrors & gates
Mirrors and gates to other worlds
To those that pass through be bold

When voices are calling me
Spirits are following me
Wild are the nights
Strange are the days
And long is the road
Mirrors and gates to other worlds
Let the scenes that you see just unfold

All the places I’ve been and the hearts that I’ve left
Cold are my nights
Dark are the storms
And the ballad goes on

There must be a way back home
Like after the storms smile with rainbows

Like angels calling me
Demons are following me
I’ve been deep asleep
Deep in troubled sleep
Eyes light all around
Pleasure in dark clouds
Hidden smiles reveal
What mystics might conceal

We’re on our way back home….
Track Name: dark fires
the things we take to rip through our days
to rip through the dark nights like werewolves at play
the demons that drive you beckon their song
when it calls just keep dancing along

let the dark fires burn high tonight
let the dark fires burn to the sky
let the dark fires take you

caught in a whirlwind spinning its haze
just chasing some magic get lost for days
heights of pleasure elusive but strong
drives us to madness but takes us along

let the dark fires burn high tonight
let the dark fires burn to the sky
let the dark fires take you

here's to silence found
the deepest magic wells
dark waters crest and swell
its lying in wait
the cycles they wax and wane
its red and full again
its coming back again
theres no coming down
Track Name: last candle burnt
Go to a job
back to an apartment
I have a few friends
Go through the motions its fine
But what I wanted wasn’t this my whole life
When in doubt just drink…

Chorus:
I never wanted this stupid job
I never wanted this boring boyfriend
I never wanted this cage that I call my life
All the music you play is so pretty
But I know in the end it won’t save me
All the music you play is so pretty
But I know in the end it won’t fucking save me
So let's have a drink and lets feel it tonight
So let's have a drink and lets feel it tonight
So let's have a drink and lets feel it tonight… its alright

Verse 1:

Get home from work
I’m almost dead
Throw on the tv
I fall asleep
I’m so tired
The same tomorrow so I think I’ll just party tonight
When in doubt just drink….

Chorus again…
Track Name: galaxies revisited (redux)
rain gently washes away all my fears
of going back to my star home
hey look up into the sky
i've i've been i've been flying too close to the sunshine

its home and its gently calling me home
to a place where i belong

stars slowly merge into view
i can see i can see that everything's going to be fine yeah
theres peace in the cosmos today
and i can i can see i can a million suns shine

its home and its gently calling me home
to a place where i belong

(instrumental)

rain gently washes away all my fears
of going back to my star home
hey look up into the sky
i've i've been i've been flying too close to the sunshine

its home and its gently calling me home
to a place where i belong

(instrumental)

theres peace in the cosmos today
and i i can see a million stars suns shine
