EASY HEART (2014)

IT HAPPENS TO ME SOMETIMES

do you ever have fireflies in your mind

or bubbly water in your spine

do you ever think uh sweet life of mine

mmm - it happens to me sometimes

 

do you ever walk barefoot in the snow

and wonder “why do I like it
ain't it great not to know”

do you ever feel blessed by the sunshine

it happens to me sometimes

but sometines I'm foolin 'round in a coal mine

singing "who turned out the light ?"

like a bird in a cage with the door open

with dreams of dreams already broken

do you recall the scent of clothes

dried in the wind

and can you feel all the good it does within

do you ever think you're always in your prime

it happens to me sometimes

I've been looking for the light

inside your eyes.

but you seem to always think about
the world and all it's lies

yeah life is surely crazy
and it's easy to despise

but there's beauty all around you

and it's a miracle I found you

and if you want life will astound you

it will astound you

 

I know I've got everything i need

and when i forget it's ignorance or greed

but mainly I feel blessed by the sunshine

it happens to me all the time
it happens to me all the time now

THE BEAUTY OF IT ALL

I'm a man and you're a woman
it might be needless to say

we are two souls and we're both human
but we never walk the same way

we live in two different countries

the language and the food are not the same

and I'm a man and you're a woman
and that's the beauty of it all

 

walk with me like two friends walk together

walk with me and share what there's to share

laughing at the crazy things we say and do

especially you
what's perfect what is true

walk with me like two friends walk together

walk with me and share what there's to share

let me be close enough
so I can smell your hair and touch your lips
what is perfect what is true

I'm your man and you're my woman
I guess that's needless to say

we are two souls and we're both humans
but we never walk the same way

the sunset has a slightly different colour

the wine that makes you warm it makes me fall

but I'm your man and you're a woman

and that's the beauty of it all

I SHOULD HAVE DANCED

the first time I saw you standing alone

I stood in awe of the beauty you own

desire flash flooding all through my veins

you broke into my heart that day

 

music was playing inside my head

I went to tell you but I froze instead

so hard to say now but I missed my chance

I can’t sleep i should have danced

 

I spied you walking, out on the street

asking myself, what's wrong with me

a love that hides too deep in a heart

is bound to get lost in the dark

 

somewhere in my head we talk easily

like the two lovers we ought to be

all of my jokes seem funny to you

gone is my fear and my blues

i should have danced

 

I saw a film it was in black and white

the credits came rolling up came the lights

I walked out of there and thought about love

don't it make fools of us all

 

so now I've bared, my soul to you

you can see it's a dream, and yet it's true

I'll be on my way now, see you around

it’s late and here comes the dawn

it’s late and here comes the dawn

 

somewhere in my head....

LYRICS:Ray Bonneville

LET'S EMBRACE

we've been here for ages

singin the same song

the same old prayer

that we would get along

 

so I was late last night

you ask me why

why all these questions

would you have me lie

 

photographs will fade

there's no stoppin what will change

let's embrace that's how we met in first place

let's embrace that's what we did in first phase

 

now this is a symptom

you know she's just a friend

everything you see here

is through a tunnellense

 

you don't have to do this

narrow down the lines

just remember what made us fine

 

photographs will fade

there's no stoppin what will change

let's embrace that's how we met in first place
let's embrace that's what we did in first phase

 

we had a beautiful picture

we thought it was the same

then we tried to squeeze into a tiny frame

 

let's embrace that's how we met in first place

let's embrace that's what we did in first phase

let's embrace let's embrace

EASY HEART

easy heart

i think we new it from start

i felt the stutter of a tender spark

 

sway and swing

my god you’re such a pretty thing
lil' honey bee
you've got a sweet sweet sting

you just keep buzzin
buzzin’ round me

 

my oh my

my head’s a way up in the sky

you got me feelin’
feelin’ i could fly fly fly

 

what if we both agreed
to leave it as it is
to keep a precious moment
to keep a precious friend.

soft and bright

let’s take a walk in the night
you don’t have to a say a word,
everything’s all right.


easy heart

whether we’re together or apart

a love like this is
a perfect work of art

our love is a perfect work of art

 

what if we both agreed...

LET'S GO TO BED

let´s go to bed together

I need to feel your skin

against my skin

 

let’s have a talk together

I’ll do my very best to understand

your heart and your mind

 

let’s find a way together

I feel so lost in here

there’s no sensible direction

just a blind search for perfection

a lack of comprehension – and love

our souls our beautiful souls
these true souls of ours

our eternal, shining ever loving souls

that follow us and guide us

and tell us who we are

 

if we dare to listen if we dare to listen

if we’re wise enough

if we’re brave enough

if we’re still enough

to listen

 

let’s sing a song together

it’s been so long since I

heard the sound of a free voice

 

let’s light a light together

lets dream some better dreams

of a dignified direction

where the goal is not perfection

with reconciliation – and love

 

our souls our beautiful souls
these true souls of ours

our eternal shining ever loving souls

that follow us and guide us

and tell us who we are

 

if we dare to listen if we dare to listen
if we’re wise enough

if we’re brave enough

if we’re still enough

to listen

 

if we’re smart enough

if we’re strong enough

if we’re humble enough

WHEN I SEE YOU

I've danced on my lawn
I've danced in the wild

been looking for reasons
since I was a child

 

I've wandered in the woods

wondered if i ever could
find one like you

 

if I lost my mind
would you still love my soul

or would you be scared
by my lack of control

what is this thing called love

that's what i'm thinking of

when I see you

 

my compas it is broke
I see life as a joke

when i see you

 

one step at a time is good walkin

listening is better than talking

why do we only dream when we sleep

why this surprise by the things that we reap

I have my feet
on two different boats

I will be happy
if just one of them floats

my compas it is broke
Ii see life as a joke

when I see you

those who can't hear the music
think the dancers are mad

the music the music
there's nothing to add

when I see you
