Introduction

When we walked into Jim’s studio in November of 2009, there was such a feeling of relief that washed over us. Finally, the songs will be given their voice! We are both so deeply grateful for his production and arrangements, of the songs, as much as we are for his wildly creative ideas, support, patience, diplomacy, awareness of who we are, and for the whole experience.

Jim would set up the room to capture the special warmth and intimacy that you will hear on this album. He has the ability to instantly put you at ease. Surrounded by mics and tape left rolling to capture just the right take, we were doing our thing live in the studio, as if we were performing on a small, solo stage in a café or a lounge room.

This album is the product of just over two weeks of recording and mixing sessions, done at various times between November 2009 and March 2011.

No session musicians were brought in, and the experience that we gained over this period has been invaluable to the shaping of our music.

Lyrics and Credits

Static

Sitting in the static of life now, waiting for the fog to clear.

The static of life is all around, don’t get lost in the static too long.

Don’t forget too breathe. Don’t forget too.

Above and below me it’s all around, I’ve been lost in the fog too long. Clarity now I call on you.

I’ve been lost in the fog way too long.

Don’t forget too breathe. Don’t forget too breathe now.

Don’t forget too breathe. Don’t forget too.

Wake up now it’s time to go. I’ve been lost in the fog too long.

Wake up now it’s time to go. Time to move on, time to fly away.

Don’t forget too breath. Don’t forget too breath now. Don’t forget too breath. Don’t forget too.

Just breathe now. Just breathe now. Just breathe now. Just breathe.

FLIGHT

If you want me to, I’ll be there. Just call my name and I’ll know – where to find you.

Cause I’m in love with you. So in love – with you.

I don’t know why, I feel this way.
It doesn’t matter, it’s just the way I feel.
I never knew - anyone could make me feel, the way you do, the way you do.

Take me and fly – so high. Take me and fly – so high.
I hope you understand, I’m fine with all of this.
I’m not asking you for time. See in me, all that I can be.
All I’m offering is mine – to you.

Cause I’m in love with you. So in love with you.
I’m in love, I’m in love. So please……just love me.

I didn’t know that you could make me feel this way.
I didn’t know that you could see me. Just see me in my dreams. See me… in my dreams.

What Now

It’s all over now. It’s all over me right now.

Wake me, wake me. Wake me from this sleep. Awaken me, to your fertile ground.

Oh how I loved you yesterday.
Oh, how I needed you to play – the game with me.
So what now.

I know your mind and I’ve seen your tears, and what about your darkest fears.
Take me, take me, take me out of nowhere.

Oh I should have known it long ago, but I was blinded by my ego.
Oh how I loved you yesterday. Oh, how I needed you to play - the game with me.

From a distant place I, I can see your face. Who says we have to stop right here.
So many thoughts flying around in my head. You could have easily put them to rest.

So what now, so what now. Now, now now.
So what now. So what now. So what now.

Sweet Life

Summer days, take me away.
Don’t you know, I wanted you to stay.
You found your way back to me.
I climbed my way into u.

I saw you looking on. I felt you watching me.
Too many roads to take, not enough time to make – the right choice.
Which way will I go today?

I love to feel the warmth of you.
Wrap it around me now.
You held my hand and now I stand, next to you.

Sweet life. Sweet life.

I can see what’s there for me. I’ve waited so patiently.
Just a little bit further now.
I’m on my way home.

Give me a sign.
Show me what’s mine.
Worlds apart I know you see. It’s waiting right there for me.
You’re smiling down upon me now.
You’re reaching, you’re showing me…

Sweet life. Sweet life.

I can see what’s there for me. I’ve waited so patiently.
Just a little bit further now, I’m on my way, my way home.

Carry me home, carry me on, carry me home.

Sweet life. Carry me, carry me, carry me – home.

Duality

Feeling, this space again. So haunted by you.

Seeing myself again, a face without a smile, just stay with me a while.

These moments, to beautiful, but life gets in the way.

These moments, to beautiful, but life gets in the way.

Seduced by love, a light from above.

Carries us away to another place, just let me see your face.

These moments, to beautiful, but life gets in the way.

Up and down. In and out. Light and dark. You and I.

Lows and highs. Weak and strong. Here or there. Do I really care?

Sweet piece of mind, will come to me in time.

For now I know, I know what’s me, and I know what’s mine.

And I know its right. Yes I know its right.

And I know its right for me, hey, right for me.

And I know its right. Yes I know its right.

And I know its right for me, hey, right for me.

And I know it’s right.

Feel Good

I just want to feel good. Want to feel so good.
So I ask myself is it me? Or is it time to feel good?

I want know who I am. I try & try but I don’t understand. What is me, who is I? I just want know why.

And what about this thing called love. Pulls you this way and that way, it’s out of control.
It takes me out of my head, and pulls me into my heart – that’s love.

And what about time. It makes you wait, it makes you hesitate.
Time can let you know, it can make you want to let go.

Time will let you choose. Time won’t slow down for you.
Time is making me strong. Time is why I’m singing this song.

I just want to feel light. Easy, breezy and oh so bright.
I want feel so light. And you know – I just might.

Cause you know when I’m not feeling good, I’m so easily misunderstood.
Yeah I’m OK baby I’m alright so – won’t you take me out tonight?

I want to feel good. Sparky, happy, healthy yeah I want to feel good. It’s up to me, to feel good.
So I think it’s time that I should. It’s time that I should baby, it’s time that I should.
It’s time, time, time, time that I should.

Happy

I’m so happy, happy to be here with you. So happy, happy to be here with you. Just be, just be, just be happy just be free.

So many faces you see in your life, they come and they go.

If you believe you reap what you sow then, you’ll be OK, just let, just let go.

Just let go, just let go. Just be happy, just be free.

Sunlight on your face. Flowers in your hair. Stars in your eyes.

The child in you, can see, the child in me.

Just open your eyes, open your eyes, I know you’ll see.

Open your eyes, open your heart, open your eyes, I know you’ll see.

Open your eyes, open your heart, open your heart and just be free.

Sunlight on your face. Flowers in your hair. Stars in your eyes.

Open your eyes, open your heart. Open your eyes I know you’ll see.

Open your eyes, open your heart, open your heart and just be free. Just be free.

Life in G

When I woke up this morning, I saw there wasn’t any light.

I don’t remember waking up last night, I’m confused beyond belief.

Am I awake or am I sleeping. Should I get up or just keep dreaming.

Could this really be the plan for you and me, or is it just another song in - G I wish you hadn’t left this morning, I tried so hard to put things right.

You always put me down, but I keep on coming around. Here goes another lonely night.

Am I awake or am I sleeping. Should I get up or just keep dreaming.

Could this really be the plan for you and me, or is it just another song in G.

I’m so tangled up inside, I can’t feel any more.
I’m so tangled up inside, I don’t know anymore.

I’m so tangled up inside, I can’t see anymore.

I cried all night because you left me.
Didn’t know what time it was, but I guess I didn’t care.

There are still so many things I have to tell you. But I suppose you didn’t really care.

Now all this cryings got me thinking, and all this thinking’s got me tired.
Think I’ll go on back to bed, I really need to rest my head, you’ll never take my dream away from me.

Awake and living, now I see what I have given – too much to you and not to me.

Awake and living, finally made my decision. Singing my way around this life in G.

Now I’ve opened up my eyes, I can see in front of me. Now I’ve opened up my eyes, I can see all around me. Now I’ve opened up my eyes, I can see all around me.

Is this just another song, is this another song.
Is this just another song, is this another song. Is this just another song in G.

Unicorn

Reflections of the past fade into shadows. Altered states of tomorrow.

Splintering shock. My minds affray. Return to now. Don’t lose your way.

I breathe in, I breathe out. I’m making love, for the first time.

Drifting in, drifting out. A place I do not know. Waking.

I thought of you. I wondered if you knew. I believe in you. I believe in you.

Sitting here, feeling you near. I reach across the sky.

The unicorn knows, the unicorn knows, the unicorn knows.

The beating of hearts. The rhythm of love.

Listen and see me. Look and you’ll hear me. Reach out and feel me. So close.

I think of you. So good, so true. I believe in you. I believe in you.

So beautiful now. So beautiful now. So beautiful.

So beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful - now.
