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.

Rain 02:42
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

Low 04:21
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

Victory 02:55
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

Trails 03:08
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

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

Roots 03:16
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

The Road 05:28
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

Drag 03:42
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...

Cool 02:50
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?
