Walking On A Dream

Length: 3:18

Release: 2008

Opening Lyrics:

Walking on a dream
How can I explain
Talking to myself
Will I see again?
We are always running for the thrill of it, thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill, searching for the thrill of it
On and on and on we are calling out, out again
Never looking down, I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me
Is it real now?
Two people become one
I can feel it
Two people become one
Thought I’d never see
The love you found in me
Now it’s changing all the time
Living in a rhythm where the minute’s working overtime

We Are The People

Length: 4:27

Release: 2021

Opening Lyrics:

We can remember swimming in December
Heading for the city lights in 1975
We share in each other
Nearer than father
The scent of a lemon drips from your eyes
We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now’ we can try
We lived an adventure
Love in the Summer
Followed the sun till night


Length: 3:24

Release: 2012

Opening Lyrics:

Days go by my window
World slows down as it goes
Goodbye to last night
Lost my eyesight
Can’t you help me see
Loving every minute ’cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute ’cause you make me feel so alive, alive, alive, alive
Waking in the snow
Tracing steps with you
Swimming through the snow
Wrapped in velvet
Can’t you help me see (they won’t get right)

High and Low

Length: 3:44

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

Now we are running in a pack to the place you don’t know
And I want you to know that I’ll always be around
Down where the summer and the late nights last forever
There’s a house on the hill and we can’t travel now
Alice D you’re on your way up
Way up
Way up
I feel most times we’re high and low (high and low)
If I had my way, never let you go (never let you go)
I feel most times we’re high and low (high and low)
If I had my way, never let you go (never let you go)
Let’s get together and forget all the troubles and just float

Half Mast

Length: 3:54

Release: 2008

Opening Lyrics:

Come on now can we talk about it like we used to talk about
Hotel in the hills with a carousel
Farmhouse in the front a tractor in the lounge
Oh oh oh honey I need you round I know I know
Listen now can we talk in love and walk the town
Be easy now, go hiking through the hills in a summer gown
Raise the kids, peace within and make our sound
Hear me now, I’m down on knees and praying
Though my faith is weak
Without you so please baby please give us a chance
Make a mends and I will stand until the end
A million times a trillion more
