Serenity – May 2020

Sir, we have a green light.
Inspection’s positive and we’re clear for up-thrust.

Think she’ll hold together?

She’s tore up plenty. But she’ll fly true.

Make sure everything’s secure.
Could be bumpy.

Always is.

Taking her out…should be about a day’s ride
to get you back to your girls.

Right.

Ready to get off this heap, back to civilized life?

I, uh…I don’t know.

Good answer.

So, you gonna ride shotgun with me, help me fly?

That’s the plan.

Think you can work out…
Okay.Clearly some aptitude for the…
It ain’t all buttons and charts, little albatross.
You know what the first rule of flying is?
Well, I suppose you do, since you already know what I’m about to say.

I do. But I like to hear you say it.

Love.
You can learn all the math in the ‘verse…
but you take a boat in
the air that you don’t love…
she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.
Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down…
tells you she’s hurting before she keels.
Makes her a home.

Storm’s getting worse.

We’ll pass through it soon enough.

Beautiful Life – May 2020

I was lost, but you found me
Hiding in the shadows from my destiny
And you saw things that no one else could see
You saved me when I was my worst enemy

It feels so good to be alive
Just you and me tonight
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life
I heard your heart call mine
And then all the stars aligned
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life

Spread through me like a wild flame
I feel it in my veins
I’ll never ever be the same
I’ll never be the same
Cheers to the thing money can’t buy
Can’t buy what I feel inside
This thing, I can’t deny
Our pretty little paradise

It feels so good to be alive
Just you and me tonight
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life
I heard your heart call mine
And then all the stars aligned
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life

Just in cases – March 2020

Look, we’re not actually flying, but…
You can’t come through
without a boarding pass.
Not even to let the boy say good-bye
to the love of his life?
No.
Uh, I’m sorry, Sam.
Boarding pass, sir?
Now, just a moment.
I know I’ve got it here somewhere.
Would you mind hanging on to that?
Unless…
What? What?
Do you want to make
a run for it?
Hold on to that as well.
Do you think I should?
Yeah.
Okay.
Yes!
No, I must have left them
where I was having a cup of coffee.
I’m sorry.
Joanna.
Sam?
– I thought you didn’t know my name.
– Of course I do.
Oh Jesus.
I’ve gotta run.
Boa noite, Aurelia.
Boa noite, Jamie.
Thank you.
That will be nice.
“Yes” is being my answer.
Easy question.
Bravo!
You learned English?
Just in cases.

I Still Fly – September 2019

 

There’s a time
In your life
When the world
Is on your side
You might not feel it
You might not see it
But it surrounds you like a light
Makes you stronger for the fight
Never letting go
Gotta learn to grow
Watch me as I touch the sky
Still I fly
Now I know it’s what I gotta do
Find a dream that’s new
Give it all I got this time
Still I fly
Still I fly
Feel the wind
All around
All the courage
To be found
Who knows what’s out there
I know I’ll get there
Oh ooh All that you deserve
I know I’m not the only one that’s
Never letting go
Gotta learn to grow
Watch me as I touch the sky
Still I fly
Now I know it’s what I gotta do
Find a dream that’s new
Give it all I got this time
Still I fly
Still I fly
Bring it in
I’m gonna shine
It’s my moment
Gotta live it
Live it right
I’m flyin’, flyin’ so strong
I’m movin’
I’m movin’
I’m movin’ on
Never letting go
Gotta learn to grow
Watch me as I touch the sky
Still I fly
Now I know it’s what I gotta do
Find a dream that’s new
Give it all I got this time
Still I fly
Still I fly

The World – July 2019

I got a story it’s almost finished
all i need is someone to tell it too
maybe, that’s you.

our time is borrowed and spent to freely
every minute i have needs to be made up
but how?
i’m looking for a nice way to say
“i’m out.”
i want out.

i fall asleep with my friends around me
only place i know, i feel safe
i’m gonna call this home

the open road is still miles away
Hey nothing serious
we still have our fun
oh we had it once

Windows open and close
that’s just how it goes

don’t it feel like sunshine after all
the world we love forever, gone
we’re only just as happy
as everyone else seems to think we are

i’m in love with the ordinary
i need a simple space
and rest my head
everything gets clear
well i’m a little ashamed for asking
but just a little helps
it gets me straight again
helps me get over it (over it)

it might seem like a dream
but it’s real to me

don’t it feel like sunshine after all
the world we love forever, gone
we’re only just as happy
as everyone else seems to think we are

you should see the canals are freezing
you should see me high
you should just be here
be with me here
it doesn’t seem there’s hope for me
i let you down
but i won’t give in now
not for any amount

don’t it feel like sunshine after all
the world we love forever, gone
we’re only just as happy
as everyone else seems to think we are

Without You – June 2019

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I’ll wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait, without you
With or without you
With or without you
Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you
With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you
And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away
My hands are tied
My body bruised, she’s got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose
And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away
With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you

Heaven – March 2019

I will run the streets and hostile lands
I will touch the rain with all I have
I will breathe the air, just scream it loud
My feet will never touch the ground
Because the days they feel like ancient clocks
Like when kids grow up and learn to walk
Because your life is full of pure desire
A place so gloriously wired
The lights and sounds
Oh God this is such a mess
And it’s like our world
But we’re the last ones left
And the hair it stands
On the back of our necks
And I swear it shows
Heaven must be just like this
Do you see the hills beneath the clouds?
The stars and its to lead you out
Can you sense the pain? It’s everywhere
And if you try you’ll never care
And the love you had
When you were young
Is right outside for all to come
Because your life is full of pure desire
A place so gloriously wired
The lights and sounds
Oh God this is such a mess
And it’s like our world
But we’re the last ones left
And the hair it stands
On the back of our necks
And I swear it shows
Heaven must be just like this
If you see the light break through the clouds
And fire up the distant towns
Now the world will be begin
Exactly how it ends
When you call for help when you are lost
For evermore or what ever it costs
And the world will begin
Exactly how it ends
Please stay
Don’t go
I’ve got you now
Are you curious?
Please stay

Love Like Rockets – September 2018


I held my head as I left the Ground
The belts grew tight as the Blast grew loud
The loving wish whispered in my ear
Please leave with grace, all the best my dear
Yeah, Its like
I held your hand as I pulled you in
Your lips sealed tight ready to being
I kissed you first then you kissed my ear
If I ask you once will you ask me every year
Do you feel alive? (Imagine Imagine)
Do you feel alive? (Imagine Imagine)
The sun would set in the nightime sky
The stars they’d cast and grow upon my eyes
The art its self a burning ball of light
Yeah, Its like
Our first love was ignited late that night
Do you feel alive? (Imagine Imagine)
Do you feel alive? (Imagine Imagine)
The Stars in your eyes, light up the sky
With gods light, fire and sound
Do you feel alive? (Imagine Imagine)
The Stars in your eyes, light up the sky
Do you feel alive? (Imagine Imagine)
With gods light, fire and sound

Take Me Back – May 2018

There are voices like water
Inside your heart

Take me back to the place where I once belonged
This could be any place
A place where you and I could sing this song
Take me back where I hear waterfalls flowing
Let me dive into the lake where winter hides the snow
Then comes the summertime
Fields of scarlet poppies grow

Take me back where I see butterflies to-ing, fro-ing
And the river flows
I am never gonna take it back again
And the river flows
I am never gonna get it back again

We don’t know anything
Trapped in a world full of strangers
Please don’t tell me anything
I’d rather fall into you
Let me sleep a little while underneath the tree
And dream of dragonflies
Where the weary willow weeps for me
Take me back where I see dandelions blowing

And the river flows
I am never gonna take it back again
Trapped in a world full of strangers
Please don’t tell me anything
I’d rather fall into you
