All that is blue Let us undo all that is blue Nurture the gift that is true Sharing the love and all that we have As harmony melts all that is blue Teaching us better than any thing else Another lesson each day Heaven comes clear in a flurry of sense When souls like us meet on the way Chorus Taking us through the most turbulent times Holding tight as we go The dream becoming real as we open our eyes In a place that we already know Chorus

Darling flower Darling flower you are to me, As The freeing wind to the tree. Heavens smiles, yes you light up my world, You give me a reason, to play upon this earth. Your with me now, every minute every hour, Your with me now, and forever darling flower. Time on earth is well spent with you, From the grasp that darkness put you thru, Soft wee lights they play on your red hair, Your soul sparkles, see it sparkle everywhere. Your with me now, every minute every hour, Your with me now, and forever darling flower.

thomasina 02:57
Thomasina Ch Thomasina essence divine You’re the favoured Auntie of mine They turned you to a light up in the sky Thomasina essence divine You and me and old Father time Turning to ancestors in the sky V1 You wrote the painted word Creative in you heard To span your final hour Distinguished, charming flower V2 Born close to the mines Many boy’s hearts you declined Cherished by your Dad Like all artists dressed quite mad

guitar trees 03:16
Guitar Trees You are guitar trees, guitar trees From every wood that’s been The echo of the forest reveals your chosen dream Guitar trees, guitar trees Beyond the fallen scream Gifting us with music and fulfilling every dream When you sang in the forest In the swamp, in the plain Did you know you would carry the lament’s long refrain All the longing and rejoicing All the raging and the ire As they dragged your bodies down To the desecrating fire Chorus Oh my trees , I have wept as you lay there in the rain Carved into, uprooted then discarded once again Now here comes a man who will make you sing anew Tenderly he’ll shape you and then liberate your muse Chorus Now you wait in the shadows Til his hands coax you through Into the sunlight of a bright soulful tune Body of alder, neck of maple hue Rosewood and cedar for the gypsy jazz in you Chorus

She walks in beauty She walks in beauty, like the night Thus mellowed to that tender light Of cloudless clime and starry sky Meet in her aspect and her eye Which Heaven gaudy day deny One shade the more one, ray the less Which waves in every, raven tress Had half impaired the nameless grace Or softly lighten o’er her face She walks in beauty, like the night Thus mellowed to that tender light And all that’s best of dark and bright How pure how dear in lovers light Which Heaven gaudy day deny

Seashore roses V Seashore roses autumn bloom Whispering echo, summer’s tune Seashore roses softly croon We will be leaving, leaving soon Ch There is so much beauty in this passing place No more pain to blow the heart away Letting go of all tomorrows Free from slipping into sorrows Seashore roses graceful ways V Seashore roses, autumn bloom Whispering echo, summer’s tune Seashore roses, softly croon - we will be leaving, leaving soon Ch There is so much beauty in this passing place No more pain to blow the heart away Letting go of all tomorrows Free from slipping into sorrows Seashore roses graceful ways

Window to another world Window to another world Rid me of this university Window to another world Set me back to free Show me my familiar hill Grant me home's returning thrill Heal the heart for sun and sky Beyond the doubting who or why Pull me through this lost train's glass Across sweet meadows which I pass Gift me Mother's loving glance Whose medicine was not by chance Thaw the heart of ice & blue Back to lover's golden hue Greet my lost beloved ones Souls of old come shine at once

we will rise 02:19
We will rise Where the heart grows tender To a vast and plaintive call Paint the faded mantra Child of sky and sea and song Bringing such light into being Sailing on every feeling gone Wether we stand, wether we fall We will rise again, to belong Wether we stand, or wether we fall We will rise In the pink of heaven Birds they flock in seven call Sealing love to letter To ensue the golden dawn Wether we stand, wether we fall We will rise again, to belong Wether we stand, or wether we fall We will rise Wether we stand, or wether we fall We will rise

Signposts to heaven There are signposts to heaven that is what they are Gently placed around us Never very far Signposts to Heaven Shining all around The heart’s where wisdom can be found Cycled out this evening And the night was sweet n cool Heron standing sentinel as swallows looping flew Bird song on the river Nesting in full sight Happy to be here this blessed night Chorus Caught a sunset out at sea Our cheeks were tinged with gold Lighthouse bright in bridal white A vision to behold Dappled water showed the clouds Reflected symmetry Living here is more than good for me Chorus

Paris in the rain Thank you for bringing me Paris in the rain, Holding me close to you never any shame Playing old guitars and a sweet mandolin Sharing hot chocolate flavoured with sin Walking through the streets feel our troubles wash away Moving as lovers as night turns into day Back to the pleasure of a sweet love’s embrace Sanctuary, warmth and a welcoming smile upon your face The lanes of Montmartre weaving into one Huddled artists gather, hoping for the sun Graffiti-strewn bridges reveal the art of the day Raymond in his time warp, survival at play
