It's Summer 05:08
It’s a rolling dust landscape Dark and light by turns Shaded by the shimmering mountains a city lies ahead Rolling ever onwards This feels right, it's summer You take my hand As I change gear And my shadow falls over you For all the echoing years Rolling ever onwards This feels right It’s summer Your eyes are a gift at noon The heat of your hand in my own Your hair on my shoulder You move like a dancer in the silver moonlight Talking about mountains And horses in the Carmargue Riding in the grasslands Dancing in the dark Rolling ever onwards This feels right Its summer Your eyes are a gift at noon The heat of your hand in my own Your hair on my shoulder You move like a dancer in the silver moonlight We’re rolling ever onwards This feels right Its summer That stillness in your green eyes A truth that speaks so loudly So much time gets wasted In the damp air of careless days We can dance with those we’ve lost We can dance with those we’ve lost

African lake at sunrise Yellow weavers are flying In the heat of the day we are resting Waiting for dusk to draw near Yellow fire in the moonlight Sharing dreams in that silver Talking and dancing til daylight True hearts rest here Got to keep moving Got to keep moving Shadows play on the hillside Red leaves fly in the wind Reaching out for the westlands She's calling me home once more Forests are green on the mountainside Standing for a lifetime or more North wind is blowing behind me She's calling me home once more Got to keep moving Got to keep moving Moving down to the south west Feel the call of the stones Crying out for the heartlands Nowhere left to call home Nowhere left to call home Feel the forests that call me Finding shelter among them Rest here just for a short time I've got to be moving on Got to keep moving Got to keep moving Got to keep moving Got to keep moving Shadows play on the hillside Red leaves fly in the wind

Dreamtime 04:46
Here comes the dawn in red and gray now that the night is over A fading moon over a mountainside giving way to sunlight Holding the line You're in my arms once more Present in the here and now Here with me in the dreamtime I'll never give up; I'll never back down I'll be the tide the years can't stop But I am so small and powerless as the mountains shake me Holding the line You're in my arms once more Present in the here and now Here with me in the dreamtime Holding back the soul of the mountain; we're rising hawks above the snowline Reaching, calling, becoming..... Holding the line You're in my arms once more Present in the here and now Here with me in the dreamtime I hear a piper on the headland lamenting all that's been The cry of naked centuries echoing out to sea Holding the line You're in my arms once more Present in the here and now Here with me in the dreamtime

We're deep in the ocean In a world of dark-blue and grey Waves flicker making shadows Window to the world above We're heading for the surface On a collision course With the heat of the sun Who knows what lives Down in this depth? There's things that hate the light Sunlight or truth or honesty They 're one and the same We're fixing to return to the surface to see What the light will bring Living in a lightless world It's been a long time since the hatches were opened Air wouldn't taste so sweet To see the sky would break your heart Such a high value for a lighter blue Dreams are no longer lies to fear

Yeah got my brother 'cross the ocean Yeah we're walking long by the standing stones Yeah we're fighting hard and we won't go down Yeah it seems to me we're moving Sister red she brought it back Following the waves Brother stand tall face the dawn Holding the line Horses running through the years Dogs running free Heard my brother say to me "Don't fight with fate" Yeah got my brother 'cross the ocean Yeah we're walking long by the standing stones Yeah we're fighting hard and we won't go down Yeah it seems to me we're moving Took a nighttime diesel run Right across the south Heading down towards the stones Rolling through the hours Stringing up with 12 gauge Sliding through those towns Horsemen running through the night Riding on the power Yeah got my brother 'cross the ocean Yeah we're walking lone by the standing stones Yeah we're fighting hard and we won't back down Yeah it seems to me we're moving

She danced In the green field She flowed through the forms Children are dancing All dressed in white Like birds ride the wind Water on stone Flowing around Time cut short the dance To leave whispers on the wind Time cut short the dance To leave words on the page It's a simple field Oak, beech and hazel River wanders through In the bowl of the sky Hawk floats at rest There's only a few of us here Just for this moment You could float in the dance Time cut short the dance To leave whispers on the wind Time cut short the dance To leave words on the page

So here we sit Back to back Hold tight to perseverance Grip the cliff-face tight I'm carrying the weight Lifting mountains with bare hands There's a delicacy here Holding tight to small things Feeling the way in the high winds I'm carrying the weight Lifting mountains with bare hands Lifting mountains with bare hands Lifting mountains... There are secret muscles That no one knows about Keep us safe When the call comes I'm carrying the weight Lifting mountains with bare hands Lifting mountains with bare hands Lifting mountains... Driven not by choice Drive by survival Crystalline and pure Wind in the pine trees

Winter's grip is tight Like wire in a wound Time in hand just trickles slowly As steel gives way to sand So much that's left undone There's things I didn't get to say Memories drift like snow And all that's bright will rust In still air there's a storm that's raging So much that's left undone Now I'm living in the empty quarter There's things I didn't get to say Desert king living deep in shadowed mountains I press rich wine from red regrets Ghosts of sand are always following Pulling bones from my weakened hands Distant drums are calling me From across wide oceans Through desert storms I'm taking the road that leads me home

Nightfall 06:21
Small lives in the shadow of the sun Lit only by the light of moments There are always wars to fight But somehow we survive Nightfall fast approaches Sorrow creeping in Shadows lengthen fast Memories start to fade The heart's dancing fire Will never end We're all small Our lives to be forgotten Starlight Will always hold us well We'll hold our time together We'll be waiting on the dawn Nightfall fast approaches Sorrow creeping in Shadows lengthen fast Memories start to fade The heart's dancing fire Will never end I remember Bright and open skies We learned to fly With wild wings at sunset Wild wings at sunset And the heart's dancing fire Will never end
