Reflections

  1. 1. Still Under Your Spell

    Still Under Your Spell

    Guitarist is playing, our favourite tune
    Ten years this summer, we heard it that June
    We chat back and forth, then order our meal
    Your smile still finds my Achilles heel
    It’s not hard to tell - I’m still under your spell

    Reminisce through mem’ries both funny and sad
    Partners in night clubs, we never should’ve had
    School plays ‘n Proms, got home late at night
    They said he’s no good, still you held me tight
    It’s not hard to tell - I’m still under your spell

    The band starts playing, we take to the floor
    Circling like planets, there’s heaven to explore
    Then later the motel, show “do-not-disturb”
    Sleep in ‘til late, it’s what you deserve
    It’s not hard to tell - I’m still under your spell

    Skin diving ballet, moving as one
    Our duvet’s a sea, midnight waves our fun
    And when the storm’s passed, we lie in the glow
    Of feelings so tender we both have known
    It’s not hard to tell - I’m still under your spell

    No it’s not hard to tell – I’m still under your spell
  2. 2. You Come By Night

    You Come By Night

    You’re here in the dead of night
    Weaving in and out of dreams like some joy rider
    You do not reveal yourself
    Does-your mask hide a born survivor

    You come by night it's kind of frightening
    You come by night it's exciting

    You’ve gone by dawn’s first gleam
    Fading with the morning mist, of lost desires
    But you’re still on the fringe
    biding your time to take them higher

    You come by night it's kind of frightening
    You come by night it's exciting

    Are you an enemy or are you a friend?
    Sometimes companion will you, be there at the end
    Trapped in reflection who can that really be?
    Escape this sentence, oh see who breaks free

    You come by night it's kind of frightening
    You come by night it's exciting
  3. 3. Lost Love

    Lost Love


    Lyrics by 'Didi' E.M.Crook, Music by Andy LeFevre

    There’s a crying in the wind
    There’s a moaning in the heather
    There is sadness in the heath
    There is sighing in the weather

    The grass is waving at her feet
    Her skirt is blowing in the wind
    Her hair is streaming round her neck
    There is torture in her mind

    Her shawl caught all about her
    Barefoot and wild she stands
    Spirit of the moorland heaths is she
    The girl with the roughened hands

    She thinks of her love of long ago
    Who passed away and left her
    He left when mist fell o’er the moor
    And went from her life forever

    Like her he was with raven hair
    Wild rugged and strong
    A moorland lad, born to be
    And should have lived there long

    They played on wi-indy days
    and when mist shrouded the moor
    In summer sun they laughed with glee
    And ran to the weathered tor

    But now she stands there all alone
    Comfortless for ever
    There will always be the saddened heath
    And a sighing in the weather

    Her shawl caught all about her
    Barefoot and wild she stands
    Spirit of the moorland heaths is she
    The girl with the roughened hands
    The girl with the roughened hands
  4. 4. Alive

    Alive

    She looks across the field at poppies, bursting from the wheat
    Waving in the wind like soldiers marching home
    Then she lies down in their field, reads his letters once again
    Senses bullets sneak concealed, between his words for her

    She can feel her thoughts exploding
    When the news gives nothing out
    Oh she fears her life’s imploding
    Cos she wants to know not doubt
    Is he alive, is he alive?

    And the shells burst all around, he ducks and weaves, surviving
    Running through a far off field, she’s on the other side
    While the seed of life love planted flowers deep inside of her
    Kicking at the light and sounds, a front-line yet to cross

    She can feel her thoughts exploding
    When the news gives nothing out
    and she fears her life’s imploding
    Cos she wants to know not doubt
    Is he alive, is he alive?

    And the Stars and Stripes and the Union Jack
    Can’t bring all-those brave hearts marching back
    And the Stars and Stripes and the Union Jack
    Can’t bring all-those brave hearts marching back
    But they’re alive within us
    So alive within us

    She can feel her thoughts exploding
    When the news gives nothing out
    Oh she knows her life’s imploding
    Cos she wants to know not doubt
    He’s alive, he’s alive

    She can feel her thoughts exploding
    When the news leaves none in doubt
    Oh she knows her life’s imploding
    He lives on in hearts avowed
    He’s alive, he’s alive, yes he’s alive
  5. 5. Tango

    Tango

    Will you dance with me
    Be my girl?
    Take a chance and
    Step into my world

    Round and round we go
    Quick, quick then slow
    Round and round we go
    Dizzy in some tango

    I’ll take the lead
    Will you dance willingly
    One two three steps
    But don’t let go of me

    Round and round we go
    Quick, quick then slow
    Round and round we go
    Dizzy in some tango

    These are crazy times
    But things will turn out fine - if we can dance
    Can we be more than friends?
    When the music ends – please stay with me

    You smile at me
    Making my thoughts spin
    Then-you turn away
    Like we’re only just beginning

    Round and round we go
    Quick, quick then slow
    Round and round we go
    Dizzy in some tango
  6. 6. Journey Through The Night

    Journey Through The Night

    Close your eyes and travel deep
    to far unconscious realms
    Falling helpless spinning down
    completely overwhelmed

    Hear the sound of ocean waves
    crashing to the shore
    Feel the one that sweeps you up
    and rocks you to the core

    Now the darkness lose your way
    Stumbling through the night
    Restless capture can’t break free
    you circle round in fright

    Time so endless crawls its way
    sand trickling down the glass
    Grain by grain begrudging falling
    passes not too fast

    Journey through the night beginning
    Journey through the night
    Journey through the night reliving
    Strange new worlds come spinning

    Now the rain starts, now the wind
    Outside a raging gale
    Wind chimes echo through the window
    Chinese torture spells

    Toss and turn you hear a cry
    From some tormented soul
    Wake before the stars go out
    Escaping dreams black hole
    Back in control
  7. 7. Pawnshop

    Pawnshop

    Pawnshop, Pawnshop tell me your stories
    of broken hearts, bravery and glory
    See people peering through your window pane
    wondering what you hold inside

    There’s a ring from Auntie Mary
    A locket from lonely Sue
    A medal from Uncle Harry and a
    broken heart from me too you

    Pawnshop, Pawnshop tell me your stories
    of broken hearts, bravery and glory
    See people peering through your window pane
    wondering what you hold inside

    The ring held dear since the blitz in the war
    The locket from a long lost friend
    The medal for charging through a hail of lead
    And a broken heart that never mends

    I wont forget, I won’t forget
    The inscription on your watch, it read
    For all time, all my love
    For all time I’ve no regrets

    Pawnshop, Pawnshop tell me your stories
    of broken hearts, bravery and glory
    See people peering through your window pane
    wondering what you hold inside

    The ring so worn could mend a worn out heart
    The locket could help a friend
    The medal still tells it’s story of,
    courage that never ends

    I won’t forget, I won’t forget
    The inscription on your watch, it read
    For all time, all my love
    For all time I’ve no regrets

    Pawnshop, Pawnshop tell me your stories
    of broken hearts, bravery and glory
    See people peering through your window pane
    wondering what you hold inside
  8. 8. Still Here

    Still Here

    Still I feel your touch
    Though you are not here
    It’s as light as the wind
    Your breath in my ear
    And you are still here

    When the sun goes down
    And the light disappears
    Can still see your face
    ‘Cross all of these years
    Though all of these tears

    I don’t know where the time goes
    Days and years it just flows
    Like a waterfall
    It just knows how to escape
    Can't turn the tide at the floodgates
    Still I feel you near

    Now the stars come out
    See Cassiopeia
    Oh she’s still the same
    And nothing has changed
    ‘Cos you are still here

    I don’t know where the time goes
    Days and years it just flows
    Like a waterfall
    It just knows how to escape
    Can't turn the tide at the floodgates
    Still I feel you near
    And you are still here
  9. 9. Rider

    Rider

    Dusty horizon turns your sky red
    Dust devil’s spinning, the plans in your head
    Stones in your sandals, holes in your shoes
    Gold dust to search for whenever you lose

    Rider you stumble and fall
    Trying to climb up canyon walls
    Gotta find your way out of here
    Before they’ll crack you’ll disappear

    Dusty horizon, riders coming in
    Call sons and daughters, elders pray for our sins
    We’ve been rather careless, dreaming padre
    Following footprints, we made yesterday

    Rider you stumble and fall
    Trying to climb up canyon walls
    Gotta find your way out of here
    Before they crack you’ll disappear

    There’s no place you can hide
    There’s no way you’ll survive
    There’s no place you can hide
    So join the riders and ride

    Rider you stumble and fall
    Trying to climb up canyon walls
    Gotta find your way out of here
    Before they crack you’ll disappear

    There’s no place you can hide
    There’s no way you’ll survive
    There’s no place you can hide
    So join the riders and ride
  10. 10. Turn-up the Heat (Instrumental)
  11. 11. Searching

    Searching

    I’ve been searching, reaching out
    Seeking low and high
    Will I ever find you
    Will I ever know you
    Have I strayed too far?

    Oh I’ve been searching
    Searching for signs that
    show you really
    hear my whispers
    I’m reaching out
    Trying to touch you
    Losing my balance
    Losing grace
    I’m losing track of days
    Trapped in a lifelong maze
    Don’t know which way to turn
    Maybe condemned to burn
    Why can’t you find me?
    Why can’t you free me?
    Oh this uncertainty - this disbelief

    When will you see me, here in plain sight, tell me
    When will I have you, here in my life

    You can help everyone
    Even the ones that don’t
    know-they-need-help from you
    Yeah, they need it too
    You must know what to do
    For the dwindling few but
    You don’t come to us
    Was-it-always thus?
    Why-don’t-you tend your flock?
    Calm the bleating cries
    When will we realize
    False images cloud our eyes
    If we’re not the chosen ones
    Are you not there to choose?
    One sided hopes and prayers - suspend belief

    When will you find us, here in plain sight, tell us
    When will we have you, here in our lives

    A shadow falls across our path
    It’s invading our every shore
    Like a Hydra it keeps growing, growing
    bigger with every war
    And we need you more and more...

    When will you find us, here in plain sight, tell us
    When will we have you, here in our lives, tell us
    When will you find us, here in plain sight, tell us
    When will we have you, here in our lives
  12. 12. You'll Find Me Where I'm Waiting

    You'll Find Me Where I'm Waiting

    Find, tranquility you seek
    Float free, into the distance
    Healing rain will sooth your up-turned face
    Sunlight, rewarding your persistence

    You, my friends, are all my friends, are all
    Our fates entwined up-on this endless shore
    Deep, my friends, breathe deep my friends, breathe deep
    And seek to find who you’ve been looking for

    You’ll hear, a voice of someone calling
    Down the valley, and on the breeze
    Murmurs from the restless brook join in
    Overhead, a whispering of leaves

    You, my friends, are all my friends, are all
    Our fates entwined up-on this endless shore
    Deep, my friends, breathe deep my friends, breathe deep
    And seek to find who you’ve been looking for

    You-’ll find me where I’m waiting
    Oh waiting where I’ve always been
    We’ll walk and talk make time stand still
    Conquer slopes of impossible hills
    Transcend ravines, in man’s goodwill - we will

    You, my friends, are all my friends, are all
    Our fates entwined up-on this endless shore
    Deep, my friends, breathe deep my friends, breathe deep
    And seek to find who you’ve been looking for
    Upon the shore
  13. 13. Come The Hour

    Come The Hour

    Come the hour, I’ll call say sorry turn over, a new leaf
    Pack bags and stay a while, share your sorrow and your grief
    Come the hour, I'll ring the bells in the old church tower
    Come when they toll for your, tearful tribute hour

    But I’m afraid to reach-out feeling blind
    Afraid of all the pain, I know I’ll find
    I don’t believe I’m as strong as you
    But if it’s helping you, that might help me too
    Come the hour I’ll try

    Come the hour, I’ll be waiting here, do whatever you need
    Kneel and pray with you, lay flowers helplessly while you grieve
    Come the hour, I’ll give it all up, crawl down from my ivory tower
    Slow down from living life, a hundred miles an hour

    So easy to put the phone down
    Forget what you’re going through
    A familiar voice, a listening ear
    Was that the best I could do for you?

    But I’m afraid to reach-out feeling blind
    Afraid of all the pain, I know I’ll find
    I don’t believe I’m as strong as you
    But if it’s helping you, that might help me too
    Come the hour I’ll try

    Come the hour, I’ll try
    Come the hour, I’ll try
  14. 14. Tango (Instrumental)
  15. 15. Song For Glenn

    Song For Glenn

    Bitter not larger
    You like one and not the other
    The music’s drifting closer
    and friends all gather round

    Stroke, a dog that’s panting
    At the Cock and Bell
    Chat, with all the locals
    and ask if they are well

    Strangers nod to music
    While drinking at the bar,
    join them
    Friendships, therapeutic
    Defining who we are

    IO are playing
    Tim finds the lost chord
    Bert’s singing a-cappella
    Dennis dances on his board

    Cath and Nick are jigging
    Fiddle and squeeze box
    Myles’ feet start tapping
    Yeah the Compasses rocks!

    Strangers nod to music
    While drinking at the bar,
    join them
    Friendships, therapeutic
    Defining who we are

    Singing they start singing
    To sing that song again so we’re
    Singing, we are singing
    Singing a song for Glenn
  16. 16. Siesta Key

    Siesta Key

    Sun beams playing on my window sill
    Reminds me of where we’ve been
    Silky white sands of Siesta Key still calling me
    We lay there naked on the virgin sands
    Drying in the breeze
    The cool blue ocean breathing in and out
    Our bodies rise in sympathy

    Siesta Key unlocked the treasure chest
    Hidden on Crescent beach
    That’s where I learned your love was within my reach
    Siesta Key brings back memories
    Our footprints in the sand
    That’s where they merged at sunset on the strand

    Hair curls glisten on your smiling face
    Seashell close to your ear
    That shell phone call from Siesta Key still rings for me
    I answer it in-the dead of night
    Hear the breathing waves at the key
    Reaching out still finds you lying next to me

    Siesta Key unlocked the treasure chest
    Hidden on Crescent beach
    That’s where I learned your love was within my reach
    Siesta Key brings back memories
    Our footprints in the sand
    That’s where they merged at sunset on the strand

    Do do do….

    We lay there naked on the virgin sands
    Drying in the breeze
    The cool blue ocean breathing in and out
    Our bodies rise in sympathy

    Siesta Key unlocked the treasure chest
    Hidden on Crescent beach
    That’s where I learned your love was within my reach
    Siesta Key brings back memories
    Our footprints in the sand
    That’s where they merged at sunset on the strand

    Lyrics by 'Didi' E.M.Crook, Music by Andy LeFevre

    There’s a crying in the wind
    There’s a moaning in the heather
    There is sadness in the heath
    There is sighing in the weather

    The grass is waving at her feet
    Her skirt is blowing in the wind
    Her hair is streaming round her neck
    There is torture in her mind

    Her shawl caught all about her
    Barefoot and wild she stands
    Spirit of the moorland heaths is she
    The girl with the roughened hands

    She thinks of her love of long ago
    Who passed away and left her
    He left when mist fell o’er the moor
    And went from her life forever

    Like her he was with raven hair
    Wild rugged and strong
    A moorland lad, born to be
    And should have lived there long

    They played on wi-indy days
    and when mist shrouded the moor
    In summer sun they laughed with glee
    And ran to the weathered tor

    But now she stands there all alone
    Comfortless for ever
    There will always be the saddened heath
    And a sighing in the weather

    Her shawl caught all about her
    Barefoot and wild she stands
    Spirit of the moorland heaths is she
    The girl with the roughened hands
    The girl with the roughened hands
  18. 18. Pearls (Bonus Track)

    Pearls (Bonus Track)

    Look up at the man in the moon
    Surrounded by a diamond sky
    But below a blue and white pearl catches his eye

    Scattered 'cross a ribbon of black
    A string of pearls are fading out
    But below a blue and white pearl is still holding out

    And the man in the moon cries any time soon
    we’re gonna wake and know what’s fake
    In all these pearls in the sky only one of them holds you and I
    See our mother of pearls iridescent swirls with her blue & white cloudy face
    So alone in the darkness waiting for her first embrace

    And the girl on the ballroom floor
    Spins round in a diamond sky
    While the man in the moon circles round trying to catch her eye

    And there’s a red face looking on
    He's breathless to join the dance
    But knowing he can’t cut in he’s already lost his chance

    And the man in the moon cries any time soon
    we’re gonna wake and know what’s fake
    In all these pearls in the sky only one of them holds you and I
    See our mother of pearls iridescent swirls with her blue & white cloudy face
    So alone in the darkness waiting for her first embrace

    We’re dancing with a blue and white pearl
    Oh such a beautiful world
    Dancing with a blue and white pearl
    Oh such a beautiful world
