Village by the Sea

Wake in a village by the waves
Warm colours in the air, they wrap around my face
And the person you know me to be, before I went away
Is as far from anything that I know I’ve come to be, this day

And now I’ve had a taste of it
I’m not sure I could live the city life that left me for dead

Coming down the mountain I saw a different side of me
Every little stress inside my head is long left at sea
If I were as simple as the sand between my toes
I’m not sure that I’ll be coming home

Escape the city and the waste
To a place where every body smiles and offers me a wave
And I know that I said that I’m sure that there’s not such thing as free
But it’s as far from anything that I know I’ve come to be

And now I’ve had a taste of it
I’m not sure I could live the city life that left me for dead

Coming down the mountain I saw a different side of me
Every little stress inside my head is long left at sea
If I were as simple as the sand between my toes
I’m not sure that I’ll be coming home

For the most part I can love just who I am
I need to find a way to bottle this day

Coming down the mountain I saw a different side of me
Every little stress inside my head is long left at sea
If I were as simple as the sand between my toes
I’m not sure that I’ll be coming home

Winter Sun

In the winter sun
Cuppa tea to warm my palms
Cos I don’t smoke to kill my lungs
But we all need something to pull us through
Don’t you?

I’ve been thinkin’ bout addiction
All the things we feel we need
But what if I gave up my dirty deeds
Would I still know who to be
Would you still find love for me

It’s been a long hard year
I’ve been out for a while
Searching for something we just can’t buy
Until I find it, is it so bad that I do
All the things that I do…
If it pulls me through

It seems like such a waste
I’ve given to much time to this dark space
What if I found new ways to escape
Would I still need something to blame
Would I still hold on to this piece of pain

It’s been a long hard year
I’ve been out for a while
Searching for something we just can’t buy
Until I find it, is it so bad that I do
All the things that I do…
If it pulls me through

I found all these little pleasures
In pockets if forgot to check
I’ll be sure to hold on to them
But I’m wondering what I’ve been missing
And I’m wondering what is coming

It’s been a long hard year
I’ve been out for a while
Searching for something we just can’t buy
Until I find it, is it so bad that I do
All the things that I do…
If it pulls me through

In the winter sun
Here I’ll wait for what is to come
