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

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

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

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

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

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

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
8.
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

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

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.
