Track Name: Bedruthan Steps
​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…..

Track Name: Glowing Yellow
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

Track Name: Come Save Me
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

Track Name: Ditch
​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

Track Name: Do You Ever Wonder
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……..

Track Name: Lady Troubadour
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

​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……..

Day of rest me my guitar pine white bed and you
Poetry sacred hymns I would bring to thee

Feel the memory of the amber flames carry us though

With gratitude I will think of you

And we found our natural end
Now we begin again

Track Name: Fast Train
​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…..

Track Name: Feel
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

Track Name: Soldier
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

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

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

Naked dancing
All we are

Track Name: Matty Groves
​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
