about

My music was introduced to Robert and Erna Coucke from Belgium through a mutual friend John Orsulik. They had met at a folk festival in the Czech Republic and stayed in touch through a shared interest in all things folk and acoustic. Robert invited me to his own Folk gathering ‘Songs voor ‘t gemoed’ near Ghent in June 2016. It was a wonderful few days and I am grateful to Robert and Erna for their generosity and hospitality. Robert loaned me a beautiful Benito acoustic guitar to use while I was in Belgium and it was this guitar that carried me through the remainder of the tour.

I played the Toogenblik Folk Club in Brussels on Friday 10th June 2016.

Track Name: Sean One Shoe (Toogenblik Live)
Ride on the far away ocean
Break on the city shore
Rise on the wind’s wild notion
Dreamed by the open door
A far cry from this station
A place on the underground
Big men worn down Cash Nation
See you on the turnaround

Go home boys home Go home

Begin where you plan to leave from
Ghost with a hungry smile
Last breath on a cold glass frosting
Make yourself up in your own mind
From the side To the side On the inside
A spot Mister Anna found
No child is a child forever
See you on the turnaround

Go home boys home Go home
Sean One Shoe says he knows you
When I grew up the World got bigger too

Ride on the far away ocean
Break on the city shore
Rise on the wind’s wild notion
Dreamed by the open door

Sean One Shoe says he knows you
Track Name: Whispers Apart (Toogenblik Live)
Sometimes she said when you’re not here
I listen to the whispers from your heart
Sometimes she said when I’m alone
I find myself fading in the dark
Overtaken by the wind
Lost and forsaken Drifting in
Sometimes she said when you’re not here
I listen for the whispers in your heart

Sometimes she said the moon and stars
Are all that stand between us and the night
Sometimes she said they cross the sky
Crash below the waves Out of sight
Roll like thunder Break the sound
Fall to pieces Raining down
Sometimes she said the moon and stars
Are all that stand between us and what’s right

I’m still standing I’m still here

Sometimes she said when you’re not here
I listen to the whispers from your heart
Sometimes she said when I’m alone
I find myself fading in the dark
Overtaken by the wind
Lost and forsaken Drifting in
Sometimes she said when you’re not here
I listen for the whispers in your heart

I’m still standing I’m still here

We’re just whispers apart
Just whispers apart
Whispers apart
Track Name: Sky Anvils (Toogenblik Live)
The cock crew in the morning
I was awake and you were still
Paradise was taken I heard the trains
You called out numbers in your sleep
Back behind the station
The door was locked One way in
Stayed most days Long as I could
Life moved slowly through the afternoons

Never one of us Always someone else
Sleeping in the corner Dreaming as the cars went by
Talking to myself Listening for the sound of your voice
Following footsteps In the middle of the street
Skipping like a stone

Sky Anvils and Glass Magnets attract me to you
Sky Anvils and Glass Magnets attract me too

The years flew without warning
The days were like a rush You said it yourself
Remember why you came and what you did
No one asks or wonders where it all goes
Back behind the curtains
The pictures on the wall
Stayed most nights Long as I could
Left later in the early hours

Only one or two On a quiet night
Sitting in the corner Wishing as the cars went by
Talking about myself Listening to the sound of your voice
Counting footsteps From the middle of the street
Stepping like a stone

Sky Anvils and Glass Magnets attract me to you
Sky Anvils and Glass Magnets attract me too

Never one of us Always someone else
Standing on the corner Watching as the cars go by
Talking to myself Listening for the sound of your voice
Following footsteps In the middle of the street
Skipping like a stone

Sky Anvils and Glass Magnets attract me to you
Sky Anvils and Glass Magnets attract me too
Track Name: Claws (Toogenblik Live)
Walk in shallow streams
As evening falls
Across these stones
Water breaks uneven

Listen as the wind drops
Close to my ear
Take these claws
Wrap your love around them

Now the barriers
Are common ground
Free up the chains
The walls are silent

Lead the way
We are two from here
Where you go
I will follow

I was like you were
I was like you were now
Track Name: Waves (Toogenblik Live)
Dust on the road blows along forever
No one knows how far it goes
The signs have holes Clear as the daylight
No one knows which way to turn
Over the hills Down through the valleys
We rushed like waves breaking on the shore
Higher than high Low as the thunder
We danced in the sand by the Adriatic Sea

The ways of the war are distant and futile
Broken rules lie all around
What few have seen Many more have witnessed
Standing still in the fields
Over the hills Down through the valleys
We rushed like waves breaking on the shore
Hidden from the view Living in the open
We danced in the sand by the Adriatic Sea

Those who know say little or nothing
Everybody else just talks
Words get lost End up with no meaning
We tell it all among ourselves
Over the hills Down through the valleys
We rushed like waves breaking on the shore
Sang from our hearts Rolled with the laughter
We danced in the sand by the Adriatic Sea

Over the hills Down through the valleys
We rushed like waves breaking on the shore
Higher than high Low as the thunder
We danced in the sand by the Adriatic Sea

Higher than high Low as the rumble
We danced in the sand by the Adriatic Sea

The side of the road falls away forever
No one knows how deep it goes
Track Name: If Time Is The River (Toogenblik Live)
If time is the river and we are the shore I’ll stand here beside you forever and more True as the water runs down to the sea I’ll hold you in my arms and take you with me

Tell me the stories of other young men Who left what they loved to start rambling again Strayed in the ports of their own promised land After the ship had long sailed on

The valleys were green As we looked from the mountains The mist on the hills rolling by The valleys were green As we ran down the mountains Free as the wind that blows far and wide

If time is the river and we are the shore I’ll stand here beside you forever and more True as the water runs down to the sea I’ll hold you in my arms and take you with me

Tell me the stories of where you have been All those fine places I never have seen I counted the days The years in between After the ship had long sailed on

The valleys were green As we looked from the mountains The mist on the hills rolling by The valleys were green As we ran down the mountains Free as the wind that blows far and wide

If time is the river and we are the shore I’ll stand here beside you forever and more After the last star has faded and gone I’ll lie in your arms and I’ll sail on
Track Name: Acrobat (Toogenblik Live)
There’s a tightrope here
An acrobat could walk over
A clown might fall
End up in the water
We laugh out loud
Sing along with the crowd
There’s a tightrope here

There’s a mystery here
New land to discover
A tree might fall
Make a sound like thunder
We talk all night
Set the world to right
There’s a mystery here

I have always wanted to open up my eyes
I have always wanted you by my side
We were meant for each other

There’s a place near here
Stones throw from the centre
Where no one knows
It’s a secret adventure
We step inside
Let the stars decide
There’s a place near here

I have always wanted to see with my own eyes
I have always wanted you by my side
We were meant for each other

There’s a tightrope here
An acrobat could walk over
A clown might fall
End up in the water
We laugh out loud
Sing along with the crowd
There’s a tightrope here

I have always wanted to open up my eyes
I have always wanted you by my side
We were meant for each other
Track Name: Bermondsey Spring (Toogenblik Live)
Leaves always come back again
The sun shines and birds start to sing
We walk by
The river at low tide
Love in the Bermondsey Spring

Clouds always roll back again
They bring the snow and the rain
We walk by
Bridges hold the sky
Love in the Bermondsey Spring

Roads always lead back again
From here to where we first began
We walk by
You and I
Love in the Bermondsey Spring
Track Name: I'm No Angel (Toogenblik Live)
I’m no Angel Some men able
Come easy Please no one at all
If you love me If you want me
I’ll be waiting Please no one at all

I’m no Angel Fall down cradle
Dream easy Tell no one at all
If you love me If you need me
I’ll be waiting Tell no one at all

I’m no Angel Good men able
Go easy Please no one at all
If you love me If you want me
I’ll be waiting Please no one at all

If you love me If you lead me
I’ll be waiting Please no one at all

I’m no Angel Some men able
Come easy Please no one at all
If you love me If you want me
I’ll be waiting Please no one at all

If you love me I’ll be waiting
I’m no Angel
