NOTES
Lyrics :
Even if there is no answer
I still have the right to ask
Even if the road is narrow
I still have the right to pass

And if there is no heaven
There will still come another dawn
And if there is no tomorrow
Don’t forget what we came here for

When Yesterday, was today’s tomorrow
When Yesterday, was today’s tomorrow
When Yesterday, was today’s tomorrow
When Yesterday, was today’…

Lucretia's Eylandt, 1629,

by Andy Michaels

Released 2018
Released 2018
"The poetic nature of the lyrics is entirely impressive…and pretty heartbreaking.The way that the chorus brings in an uplifting dose of melody into the structure, would likely crush a few hearts through its tale of a sweet love long lost" - SBS, January 2018

This song was written about the worlds most horrifying shipwreck of them all which was that of the Batavia, off the West Australian coast, in June 1629.

NOTES
Lyrics :
I close my eyes and drift away
It takes me back to yesterday
When we were one and one is all
And being together makes it hard to fall

Life is a stage and we must play our part
Even for those who have broken hearts
When the applause ends and the curtains close
When we reach out does anybody know

When the stage is clear will there be love
And after Jesters' tears …

    Just Because You Love Someone (feat. Kerry Ironside)

    Just Because you Love Someone

    There’s a cold war coming in my mind
    (A nuclear fuse)
    I’ve drawn a line for Old man kind (Its kinda new)

    The desert wind blows harsh and cold
    (The sun trying to shine)
    How do I ride through the canyon alone
    (With just you on my mind)

    Just because you love someone
    Doesn’t mean they will love you too
    Just because you touch someone
    Doesn’t mean they ever want to hold you

    The wind blowing through your hair
    Causes shadows in your eyes
    I’m a hurricane looking down on you
    But I feel no calm inside

    There’s a tsunami coming through my mind
    It’s washing everything away
    I’ve drawn a line for old man time
    So You know what I want to say

What does it take to show

I just want to be the one, I just want to be the one
When your love’s trying babe, I just wanna …

NOTES
Lyrics :

When I close my eyes
I see your smile.

From your past you still hide your pain
So you think you will never love again
But don’t let one mistake
Decide your future fate
You have so much to give
So open up and let it in, just let it in

Remember life’s a picture and you’re the frame
Without your love the colours start to fade
You have so much …

Lyrics :

Home, is where the sea is calling me
And memories mean so much to me
Is this the price of being free

And you, your eyes look at me enchantingly
I don’t need to say how much you mean to me
Your love warms like ageless fire

And why, do faceless strangers just walk on by
Without a word or forgiving smile
At least the nights will take me home

Home is where …

AND RAIN THE CLOUDS NO LONGER BRING

I'LL STILL BE ALRIGHT LOVING YOU
DAYS AND NIGHTS AND A LIFETIME …

Lyrics :

There’s a place by the park
Where the children play 
And their innocence
Reminded me of her yesterday
Her smile, her grace
The way that she laughs 
I miss her, she's beautiful
There must be a path that I can choose, I can choose

The park was cold and when it rained
I was in a play without an actor
But there’s still a part of me that wants to get back …

I FEEL HER LAUGH BUT I CAN HEAR NO SOUND
AND IF THERES ONE THING THAT I WISH COULD BE
IS TO HAVE MY LITTLE GIRL WITH ME

THERES NO USE IN GRIEVING FOR LOVE

Soldier, I see your picture’s torn and faded from the light
Soldier, as our memories fade were we wrong or were we right

And tell me, (tell me) as you were crawling what hopes and dreams, were left in store
And tell me, (tell me) as you lay fallen was it really worth fighting for

Soldier, I see from your picture you were young and free and brave
And Soldier, do you lie …
