Thoughtful lyrics, eclectic piano, mellow reeds and lively percussion blend together harmoniously to create a distinctly original sound. ... more

Track Name: The Garden Of Eden
It's not all roses in the Garden of Eden,
Eve wants Adam but Adam wants his freedom.
The apples need collecting, there are serpents everywhere,
But when Eve calls to Adam - Adam is not there.

He is sitting in the trees with the birds and the bees,
And his mind in another world.

There's not much joy between Delilah and Samson,
He no longer takes her out and he's not looking quite so handsome.
He ought to put a suit on, he should really cut his hair,
But when she gets the scissors ready - Samson is not there.

He is sitting in the trees with the birds and the bees,
And his mind in another world.

There's not much action now in Cleopatra's court,
Anthony's worn out by all the battles that he's fought.
So she mixes up a potion to give him back his flair,
But when she takes it to the table - Anthony's not there.

He is sitting in the trees with the birds and the bees,
And his mind in another world.
Track Name: Song for Emma
Stepping outside
Into the wild,
Looking at the world
Through the eyes of a child;
Wondering out loud,
Can this really be?
Is this the future I see?

We’re building a wilderness of hunger and need,
Governed by hypocrisy and greed.

Don’t let them get their hooks on you,
You know they’ll turn you into someone new;
Don’t hang on every word they say,
Try to work it out your own way -
Your own way.


Stepping outside
The line of fire,
Crawling in the dark
Through the myth and the mire;
Searching for an island
In a raging sea,
Looking for some way to be free.

We’re building a wilderness of innocent cries,
Governed by indifference and lies.

Don’t let them get their hooks on you,
You know they’ll turn you into someone new;
Don’t hang on every word they say,
Try to work it out your own way -
Your own way.
Track Name: Crazy Days
Johnny hears a buzzing, he jumps out of bed,
He’s got a hole in his pocket, a dream in his head;
Alarm clock's screaming, time for him to go,
But Johnny’s still dreaming, his feet are slow.
A shout from the kitchen, his food’s on the plate,
He’d better pick up his heels, he’s going to be late;
He’s got his arms in his trousers, his hand in a shoe,
He’s upside-down, doesn’t know what to do -
He’s in a daze - crazy days.

Johnny’s at the bus-stop standing in the queue,
His toes are frozen, his fingers are blue;
Conductor's screaming, time for him to pay,
But Johnny’s still dreaming, he’s miles away.
A whistle from the factory, they’re closing the gate,
He’d better pick up his heels, he’s going to be late;
He’s got his eyes on the clock-in, his hand on the card,
He might just make it but it’s going to be hard -

Johnny’s in the bar-room swilling down the beer,
He’s got smoke in his eyes, music in his ear;
Landlord's screaming, time to close the bar,
But Johnny’s still dreaming, his thoughts are afar.
A ring from the counter, the bill’s on the slate,
He’d better pick up his heels, he’s going to be late;
He’s got his bum on a barstool, his eyes on a girl,
His hands are steady but he’s starting to swirl -
He’s in a daze - crazy days.

Johnny’s in the bathroom staring at himself,
He’s got hope in his eyes, soap on the shelf;
Conscience screaming, time to understand,
But Johnny’s still dreaming in a faraway land.
A yell from the hallway, someone can’t wait,
He’d better pick up his heels, he’s going to be late;
He’s got soap in his eyes, his hope on the shelf,
Reflection’s fading, he’s losing himself -
He’s in a daze - crazy days.
Track Name: Insieme
It only takes a moment to undo all that we've done,
To hide inside our shadows with our shoulders to the sun;
A moment longer just to close the door and run,
And watch the stars fade slowly one by one.

One word out of place is all it takes to end the song,
No one ever knows exactly who is right or wrong;
Then a lifetime to get back where we belong,
And listen to our hearts beat loud and strong.

A familiar voice in the distance, a friendly glance,
Eyes that sparkle, hands that tremble, just another chance.
Just another - just another chance,
Just another - just another chance.

Stop - think about it - it's so absurd,
Throwing down the gauntlet for a gesture or a word;
Lost in the illusions of a vision strained and blurred
We walk away as if we haven't heard.

A familiar voice in the distance, a friendly glance,
Eyes that sparkle, hands that tremble, just another chance.
Just another - just another chance,
Just another - just another chance.
Track Name: So
So you were looking for fame,
And your reflection in the pool,
Coloured lights round your name,
The fastest draw in every duel.
Well, we're all in the game,
We all know the golden rule,
And each day's just the same -
Feeling like you're nobody's fool.

So now you've suffered the pain,
You've had to bend your knees and crawl,
Now you're caught in the game,
You have to follow a different call.
Well, we all have our shame,
We all learn to climb and fall,
And each day's just the same -
Feeling like you're no one at all.

When you're up in the air,
When you're down on the ground,
The beat of your heart is a familiar sound.
And the moon rising high,
And the stars in the sky,
Mean the world's still turning round.
Track Name: Khayalan
I’m easy now,
Easy with my arms around you,
I don’t know how,
Don’t know how I lost and found you.

In this wilderness,
Again and again,
I call your name,
You take my hand in yours
And wash me in the rain.

I’m easy now,
Easy when I think about you,
I don’t know how,
Don’t know how I’d live without you.

In this universe,
Planets in space,
I touch your face,
You take my hand and lead me
To a higher place.

Khayalan

Track Name: Song for Peter
What do you think of the world outside?
Does it turn you on? Does it make you want to hide?
How do you feel about the people you meet,
The songs you hear, the food you eat?
What do you think of the clothes you wear,
The size of your shoes, the colour of your hair?
How do you sleep in your bed at night?
Is the room too dark? Are the sheets too tight?

Look at you now, look at the way you’re growing
Look at you now, is there any way of knowing?
What’s going on in your mind?
Do you think I can find
A way to your heart?
Take me and lead me behind
All these years that blind me
And keep us apart.

Will your days be full of bits and bytes?
Will you fight for peace and human rights?
Will you surf at night on a CD-Rom,
Try to stop the atomic bomb?
Will you duck the bridge, jump the style,
Hold your head up high and smile?
Will you set your sights on the stars in the sky,
Wonder why all the good men die?

Look at you now, look at the way you’re growing
Look at you now, is there any way of knowing?
What’s going on in your mind?
Do you think I can find
A way to your heart?
Take me and lead me behind
All these years that blind me
And keep us apart.

Will man be torn by religion and race,
Up to his neck in nuclear waste?
Will children scream in the dead of night?
Will Greenpeace and Amnesty lose the fight?
Will anybody still find time to sing
Or read about Martin Luther King?
Will a man be judged by the colour of his skin?
Will the answer still be blowing in the wind?

Look at you now, look at the way you’re growing
Look at you now, is there any way of knowing?
What’s going on in your mind?
Do you think I can find
A way to your heart?
Take me and lead me behind
All these years that blind me
And keep us apart.
Track Name: Circles & Spirals
If it's true that there's a whole wide world
In a grain of sand,
Then you have the universe
Lying in your hand;
Stars at your fingertips,
Planets in your hair,
And the Milky Way lying at your feet
Will take you anywhere that you want to go -
All you have to do is flow.

If it's true that life will pick you up
Each time you fall,
Then you don't need to cry
You don't have to crawl;
Ripples at your fingertips,
Flowers in your hair,
And the River Song playing in your ear
Will take you anywhere that you want to go;
All you have to do is flow.

If it's true that hope will never die
In the human heart,
Then you can turn around
And make a brand new start;
Circles at your fingertips,
Spirals in your hair,
And the Wind of Change blowing in your soul
Will take you anywhere that you want to go -
All you have to do is flow.
