Track Name: Truth
Truth is everything thats left
I tried climbing out of it
You said we'll get through it this time
You go round in circles and thats ok because i let you
But right now i've got to get out

I said I

My Heart needs to go and be 19 and yours 20
I know that this just wasn't out time
You go round in circles and thats ok because i let you
But right now
I've got got to get out

I said I

And the silliest things come rushing out my mouth when i don't think
But if you see my face please don't turn away

I said I
Track Name: Dreamcatcher
I went down down there to the dark where i didn't wanna go
and i caught the reflections of people standing below
and i thought to myself how the fuck did i get here
because everybody's running around
And living their lives just out of fear

And i said
Dreamcatcher, catch my dreams tonight and
Reassure me every things alright
I've struggled far too long to stay alive
So just let the good vibes in
Let the good vibes in

When i woke from my dream it was almost mid afternoon
But i couldn't shake the feeling maybe I'd woken too soon
Because to my surprise my dreams, they became my reality
But really was i very happy with everything i did now see

And i said
Dreamcatcher, catch my dreams tonight and
Reassure me every things alright
I've struggled far too long to stay alive
So just let the good vibes in
Let the good vibes in
Let them in let them down

Dreamcatcher, catch my dreams tonight and
Reassure me every things alright
I've struggled far too long to stay alive
So just let the good vibes in
Let the good vibes in
Track Name: Lovely and Honest
Well I don’t wanna scare you
But love’s a strong word
But it’s not taken lightly
I can only observe it
From where I sit in the light of the sun
I think about you back in London
On the cold nights are you alone

Have you got someone’s arms to keep you safe and warm?

Well wasn’t it you that said
That everything is family and everyone is home so
Why do I feel like,
A boat in the ocean and the wind in my sails are gone
Wasn’t it you that sang about love and honesty down by the Tenerife sea
So why can’t you be
Lovely and honest with me

Well I’ve taken my time
To meditate life
to open my heart to love
To open my third eye
And all I see now
Is love that’s abounding
And I’ll feel it all with open arms
Yeah I see it all somehow

And I hope that you’ll find your own way
Cos it’s not mine

Well wasn’t it you that said
That everything is family and everyone is home so
Why do I feel like,
A boat in the ocean and the wind in my sails are gone
Wasn’t it you that sang about love and honesty down by the Tenerife sea
So why can’t you be
Lovely and honest with me

Be honest with me
Comon’ be honest with me
I’m learning honesty
Love and honesty

Now I can say that everything is family and everywhere is home so,
I don’t have to feel like a boat lost in the ocean
Cos’ the wind in my sails will come
Now I can sing about love and honesty to everybody I meet
Cos’ I’ve learned how to be
Lovely and honest with me
Track Name: I See Change
Coming straight from the soul to the sea of faces i see now before me And yes this is how i sound,
No it's not very American and it probably wont sell and thats funny,
Cos' i could care less about money, me,
I've got something worth more than gold and sweeter than the sweetest honey
And thats love for me, so now i can see that my happiness doesn't come in the form of paper currency
With pictures of old mens heads from history
That have worked so hard to bring me to my knees
And brainwash me to believe that i can't live as i please
Despite the fact that the Earth was gifted to you and me,
To live by the sun, the moon, the sea
To live with the knowledge that everyone is family
To live with this planet because we we're born free
Free as the matter that surrounds me
Free as the gravity that grounds me
Free as the truth that empowers me
Can you imagine the day that God put us down and said ok go
Live, laugh love, create, unify and grow
And now
every things covered in 1 ton of concrete
And as Joni Mitchell put it,
Their paving over paradise so you can park your car and come and see it
Wow
I guess our consciousness has gone a little wonky
Cos' we've got med making sticks to take selfies while the stastistic is that a third of world is hungry
And i'm not singing this to make you feel guilty
I'm singing this to show you that you are me
Everything you see is just a reflection of your own beauty
And we can change, no mater what the man might say
'Oh no thats impossible, it's always been this way'
Well it hasn't, and i wanna see a new earth today
How do you think a catterpiller became a butterfly anyway
Because it knew that it wasn't indifferent to change and shed what it Needed to fly in the light of the day

I see Love
And I see change
So, i'll be love
And i'll be change

So as the earth revolves around the sun,
Live as you revolve around everyone
And elvove into a vessel of love that carries no burdens for what other mens thoughts have done
And be proud to stand up and say that we are one
We are no different from our brothers in a war torn Iran
And these tradigies are the direct effect of capitalisim
Truth be told we never chose to be born into this system
But i've seen flowers break the concrete,
So i'll listen and be witness to all of Natures wisdom

I see Love
And I see change
So, i'll be love
And i'll be change
