Terry Sim Hi Matt, Can't wait for the full album, these 2 tracks are great, I was a massive fan of the late Marc Bolan, I can hear his influences in your music, but you seem to blend it with the now!!quite a rare talent “country glam” ???? regards Terry Sim Hexham,UK Favorite track: The Road.

Track Name: Rain
You were my world for a while
Here comes the rain

You held my heart like a child
I caused you pain
Here comes the rain

But I have to love you more
Than I fear to be alone
Here comes the rain

But I have to love you more
Than I fear to be alone
Here comes the rain
Track Name: Low
This is my blue
I'm going through my blue
But not for you

Could it be true?
You're over me, too
My blue...
My blue

This isn't California
I've got no 3D vision
This is low
It's the end of superstition

This isn't California
I've got no 3D vision
I've got the blues
But not for you

For you

This is my blue
I'm going through my blue
Could it be true?

This isn't California
I've got no 3D vision
This is low
It's the end of superstition

This isn't California
I've got no 3D vision
I've got the blues
But not for you

For you
Track Name: Victory
You were alone
I was hiding from myself
You needed home
But I needed something else

I needed space
You die in such a place
I let you go
And I set on down this road

I've given time
I've tried to do it right
You've crossed the line
But it does no good to fight

I'll let you be
One little victory for me

You need to grow
There's so much more to know

You were alone
I was hiding from myself
I let you go
And I set on down this road
Track Name: Trails
House to myself
Life to myself
Now I come down from here

What's been unkind
Gets left behind
There's nothing left to fear

It's a high price
To be treated nice against your will
Such a high crime
When you've got nothing left to feel

It never fails
The pain writes these trails
It's almost like therapy

I don't have to try
But, just wonder why
You wanted to marry me

It's a high price
To be treated nice against your will
Such a high crime
When you've got nothing left to feel
Track Name: In My Darkest Hour
I had a vision
Of being pulled back to the Universe
What was the meaning?
Was it blessing, or was it curse?

I looked through my eyes
Looking out at all my friends
Oh, the horror
It really felt like the end

And everything that came before
Lost all meaning in my heart
And when it all came crashing back
I did not know where to start

In my darkest hour
You were there to comfort me
I was letting go
But you kept pushing me to breathe

I'm not afraid
I'll learn to live with what I have
In the end, I lost my mind
But it wasn't sad, cos I had you

In the end, I'll lose my mind
But it won't be bad
Cos all I want is you
Track Name: Roots
Roots of a tree
Faded into imagery
My body vines
A hung up line

Signal fading...

A clench, a grasp
At the back of my throat

You're just drifting
Through this life you do not own
You'll know better
Once your roots have all ungrown

I see myself
Like hollow lies
All kept adrift
Scared of what
The changes shift

You're just drifting
Through this life you do not own
You'll know better
Once your roots have all ungrown
Track Name: The Road
Here's how it began this time
A little Running Up That Road
With an ear now tuned by a friend of mine
And a heart still looking to unload

We shared a love of impermanence
Singing along, Never For Ever
A joy of pure coincidence
But I still dreamed, a life together

A lesson in the Hounds Of Love
Those silly dogs, I should've known
To learn to live my life above
To learn to be, to live alone

I guess, here comes the realization
If you're Head Over Heels just for the road
If your eyes aren't on your destination
Then what you feel, you are not owed

A lesson in the Hounds Of Love
Those silly dogs, I should've known
To learn to live my life above
To learn to be, to live alone

You are not owed
For what you feel
Out on the road
You are not owed
For what you feel
Out on the road

Hounds and dogs
Monsters and gods
Your little life
Your little love
Track Name: Drag
I'm just a man
Being small and all
Spaceballs and stars
There is Life On Mars

I wonder when
It'll all start again
Where are the children?
Eaten by men...

A change is coming
I'm changing my life
The world is spinning
Hold onto your wife!

You queen
You're a drag
You know you make me sad
I cut you loose, it's not all bad

You queen
You're a drag
You know you make me sad
I cut you loose, it's not all bad

Da da da da...
Track Name: Cool
You know what would be cool
Not to get over you

Don't you know it would be cool
Not to get over you

I know I'm playing the fool
But, wouldn't it be cool?

You know it would be fun
You don't have to be the one

So, let's just take things slow
We don't have let ourselves go

But, wouldn't it be cool?
Not to get over you

I know I'm playing the fool
I'm playing the fool

But, wouldn't it be cool?
