​Bedruthan Steps V1 Fare thee well my green eyed girl I left thee at the shore And there I did kiss softly her brow And from her sweet beast I tore The purest gift and lullaby I ever recalled to hear She offered me no battle I brought no harm And there she stood passive as I drew near My voice soft inside her ear (And I said) Ch Leave, leave sweet Maiden leave Leave, return no more V2 And so she turned and walked away Swallowed by raging sea I couldn't move to save her mute I couldn't speak Yet sorrow in my stillness plied my need Her long brown hair lapped at her waist Golden skin she soon would disappear Tears of molten anguish burned against my face Devastation brought me to my knees (And I said) Ch Leave, leave sweet Maiden leave Leave, return no more Mid 8 Howling as the wind blows Crumpled ill at ease With the Maiden dead and gone With the Maiden dead and gone With the Maiden dead and gone I'd soon find Peace Ch Leave…..

Glowing Yellow Who was the master to this wholly strange affair Who was watching from the wings Shall we all come clean throw our hands in the air And say exactly what we mean And all I’m looking for is an answer And all I’m looking for is an answer Do you think that this was planned Do you think that this was planned Who will take the blame why this is so misunderstood Is this how we say goodbye It’s just the way I feel oh and it surprises me Just what the master can conceal And all I’m waiting for is an answer And all I’m waiting for is something like an answer And all we’re needing is a moment To step outside the madness And bring us glowing yellow again And bring us glowing yellow again Bring us glowing yellow again Written By Eva Abraham ©2001

Come Save Me 05:44
Come Save Me How I felt so lost So absolutely heartbroken I didn’t wanna let go And leave the past behind And my heart bleeds As I recall the words I used to speak Right from my depth My core I thought that This was the only way Then I screamed Someone come save me You can you came You came I dreamed Someone come save me You can you came You came What I thought my truth My birthright not to be denied Like a ball and chain I carried so long Now I’m laying it down to die And my tears are bittersweet For a life that never could be And if I search my very soul Forever I will see that Truth will find a way And my truth is me Then I screamed Someone come save me You can you came You came I dreamed Someone come save me You can you came You came Now I realise you been here all along It just took a little time to Open my heart and my mind The sadness that I once possessed Slides from my back Like a mermaid free and blessed And now I can be a Mother To my young self And in a tender warm embrace I softly say hey child It’s gonna be ok Cos healing Healing is on it’s way Cos I screamed Someone come save me You can you came You came I dreamed Someone come save me You can you came You came Now I realise you been here all along It just took a little time to Open my heart and my mind Written By Eva Abraham 9/2/05 © 2008

Ditch 04:21
​The Ditch V1 The ditch was deep so long ago I filled it up and left it so Smoothed it over filled the cracks But the cause was always at my back V2 Now I, I lie beneath this willow tree Seeking shelter from the storm I hide beneath it's canopy Until I am, reborn Ch I live I love I sacrifice To be real to be free I no longer live a lie no no Just to keep the peace V3 I feel the lion at my side She comes to me when i call Gives me courage just to be All I can be Ch I Live I Love…… Mid 8 You came to me like bolt out of the blue And you stayed with me Just as long as I needed you to And for that…..I love you End I no longer live a lie no no Just to keep the peace Written By Eva Abraham © 2012 Eva Abraham

Do You Ever Wonder Ch Well this is how we could be Do you ever wonder bout you and me And the loveliness that might have been Do you ever wonder bout you and me V1 I can't help looking back through the windows of my mind To the place we met for the first time The bluebirds were singing sweet scent of the lilies And the promise of love in the air Ch Well this is how we could be…….. V2 Your kiss so soft still on my lips The memory of you so clear Am I still in your mind just as you are in mine Do you think we could have one more try Ch Well this is how we could be…….. Mid 8 Do you feel alone when you're missing me Wondering how this could be If we'd only taken that turn Is this something for which you yearn Ch Well this is how we could be……..

Lady Troubadour Ch Sing Lady Troubadour with the Goddess as your guide Sing Lady Troubador The Mother’s at your side And the rivers running wide echo in the language of your life generations of your tribe V1 From the Maiden to The Crone Tender wisdom grown standing true and standing strong for love and humanity your voice lives long Ch Sing Lady Troubadour with the Goddess as your guide Sing Lady Troubador The Mother’s at your side when you speak your words of peace urging men of war to cease your legacy rings on V2 As the Silver Bird flies high over Gaia’s sacred lands you bring her history her divine feminitiy into our lives Ch Sing Lady Troubadour with the Goddess as your guide Sing Lady Troubador The Mother’s at your side and your beauty’s what we see devoid of falsities of media spin and hype V3 From California you came far With you Fathers Mexican guitar you carried late nights of Mariachi music in your heart Ch (Sung in Spanish) Canta, trovadora con la Diosa como guía Canta, trovadora Con la Madre aquí a tu orilla Los anchos ríos susurran en la lengua de tu vida la memoria de tu clan Written By Eva Abraham 6/2/18 © copyright control 2018 Spanish translation By Fabio Galicia

​Johnny & June Ch We was just like Johnny & June We was just like Johnny & June But then you left me way too soon My darling I loved you Just like Johnny loved June V1 Oh well you know what it's like When love gets you insane Makes you walk the line Makes you ride that train Well it, takes you right to Hell and back again That is just what it's like When love gets you insane Ch We was just like…….. V2 Well I knew you loved me Right from the start It was right there in your eyes It was right there in your heart And there aint no use in hiding Behind those eyes a crying Our love was so dammed big There aint no denying Ch We was just like……..

Gratitude 06:06
Gratitude V1 Day of rest me my guitar pine white bed and you Poetry sacred hymns I would bring to thee Br And you would listen so graciously So Easily Ch And like the ashes of a great fire burned we float away Feel the memory of the amber flames carry us though With gratitude With gratitude I will think of you V2 Humble steed faithful sworn you cherished me Br And we found our natural end Now we begin again Ch Instrum Mid 8 And as the ashes blow away we learn to love another day X 2 Ch Outro Hey O ……….

Fast Train 04:41
​Fast Train V1 I've never been more awake I've never been more awake I have never been more awake In my born days V2 There's nothing here thats fake No damage left in my wake Except a heart that didn't know That it might break Ch And at times we have to take a chance And walk these streets alone And if you follow me right now You won't find home And if I could I surely would Catch a fast train out of town And bypass all this Bullshit runaround V3 Your affection flows easily And it's rolling straight to me And I lap up every single Little piece V4 So why does this love that Makes me so happy Awake the living hell in me And prey upon my insecurities Ch And at times….. End By pass it on a fast train By pass it on a fast train But this fast train is Coming on Home….. Written By Eva Abraham © 2012 Eva Abraham

Feel 06:38
Feel Come and hold my hand I wanna contact the living Not sure I understand This role I've been given I sit and talk to God And he just laughs at my plans My head speaks a language I don't understand I just wanna feel Real love feel the home that I live in 'Cause I got too much life Running through my veins Going to waste I don't wanna die But I ain't keen on living either Before I fall in love I'm preparing to leave her Scare myself to death That's why I keep on running Before I've arrived I can see myself coming I just wanna feel Real love feel the home that I live in 'Cause I got too much life Running through my veins Going to waste And I need to feel Real love and the love ever after I cannot get enough I just wanna feel Real love feel the home that I live in I got too much love Running through my veins To go to waste I just wanna feel Real love and the love ever after There's a hole in my soul You can see it in my face It's a real big place Come and hold my hand I wanna contact the living Not sure I understand This role I've been given Not sure I understand Not sure I understand Not sure I understand Not sure I understand Written By Robbie Williams & Guy Chambers © 2002 Robert Williams/ The In Good Company Co.

Soldier 06:36
Soldier ~ Written By Eva Abraham I see you could do with a helping hand I’ve got more than I need I’d like to offer you a place to sleep Rest your head down a while So I open my heart and my home to you Brother sister fellow soldier fighting through And I lay me down and carry all I can And when you’re strong you can do the same But is it human instinct going wrong To plunder grace and fortune horde and then suffer long Well they cannot be hearing their true song So I say gather yourself up soldier carry on Shallow is the world some choose to seek And tenderness a weakness some believe But when the dust is shaken from the leaf Comes a sweetness to last eternity So I open my heart and my home to you…. Oh carry on Soldier carry on Written By Eva Abraham ©2014

La Luna 04:10
La Luna V1 Trouble me I’ll trouble you We’ll watch these day’s unfold Open up your precious story That’s not been told Step outside from daily life And make your own history Then shake it up and make it up And watch it grow Br And just, fall in live with the music The rhythm the tune Find the divine Enchantment De La Luna Ch La La La Luna X 4 V2 Be still catch the moment Let it all come to you It’s not too late to create What is just for you so Trouble me I’ll trouble you We’ll watch these day’s unfold Open up your precious story That’s not been told Step outside from daily life And make your own history Then shake it up and make it up And watch it grow Br Hey mira la luna desde Londres hasta cuba Hey mira la luna Subir subir Ch X 2 Written By Eva Abraham, Corin Pennington & Nick Eziefula © copyright control

All We Are 05:33
All We Are V1 Ocean carry all the way Underneath these stars Right across the mountain range Skimming trees and lakes Over the deserts dusty planes I can reach you again Ch And this is all we are All we are All we are This is all we are V2 River flow and Eagle Fly I find you with My Third Eye Holy whispers as midnight falls Through the vale I hear you call Ch Br Naked dancing All we are Ch Written By Eva Abraham & Corin Pennington 2008 ©Eva Abraham Media 2014

Matty Groves 05:54
​Matty Groves A holiday, a holiday, and the first one of the year Lord Donald's wife went to the church, the gospel for to hear And when the meeting it was done, she cast her eyes about And there she saw little Matty Groves, walking in the crowd "Come home with me, little Matty Groves, come home with me tonight Come home with me, little Matty Groves, and sleep with me till light" "Oh, I can't come home, I won't come home and sleep with you tonight By the rings on your fingers I can tell you are Lord Donalds wife" "But if I am Lord Donald's wife, Lord Donald's not at home He is out in the far cornfields bringing the yearlings home" And a servant who was standing by and hearing what was said Swore Lord Donald he would know before the sun would set And in his hurry to carry the news, he bent his breast and ran And when he came to the broad millstream, he took off his shoes and he swam Little Matty Groves, he lay down he took a little sleep When he awoke, Lord Donald was standing at his feet Saying "How do you like my feather bed and how do you like my sheets How do you like my lady who lies in your arms asleep?" "Oh, well I like your feather bed and well I like your sheets But better I like your lady gay who lies in my arms asleep" "Well, get up, get up," Lord Donald cried, "get up as quick as you can It'll never be said in fair England that I slew a naked man" "Oh, I can't get up, I won't get up, I can't get up for my life For you have two long beaten swords and I not a pocket knife" "Well it's true I have two beaten swords and they cost me deep in the purse But you will have the better of them and I will have the worse And you will strike the very first blow and strike it like a man I will strike the very next blow and I'll kill you if I can" So Matty struck the very first blow and he hurt Lord Donald sore Lord Donald struck the very next blow and Matty struck no more And then Lord Donald took his wife he sat her on his knee Saying "Who do you like the best of us, Matty Groves or me?" And then up spoke his own dear wife, never heard to speak so free "I'd rather a kiss from dead Matty's lips than you or your finery" Lord Donald he jumped up and loudly he did bawl He stabbed his wife right through the heart and he pinned her against the wall "A grave, a grave," Lord Donald cried, "to put these lovers in But bury my lady at the top for she was of noble kin Trad
