DRIFT AWAY – EP

TRACK 1 : DRIFT AWAY

Looking out across the bay,
The sun is shining on this hazy summers day
Feel the warmth of the waves lapping at my feet
Hear the sound of the children having fun up on the street

Further out across the beach
See the buoys watching over the boats anchored up as they sleep
Mayrose and Pipsey pirouette just off the sand
Dancing so closely they take each others hands

And they’ll raise their sail and they’ll drift away
Dream of the adventures that may come their way
With the wind behind them they’ll make good speed
One day the ocean will set them free

Looking back along the shore,
Feel the weight of the harbour walls calling back once more
Beneath the waves the strong undertow,
Calling us back to the lives that we know

And they’ll raise their sail and they’ll drift away
Dream of the adventures that may come their way
With the wind behind them they’ll make good speed
One day the ocean will set them free

Looking out across the bay,
the sun is setting on this hazy summers day
Feel the cool waves lapping at my feet
No sounds of children having fun up on the street

So We’ll raise our sail and we’ll drift away
Begin the adventures that may come our way
With the wind behind us we’ll make good speed
Today day the ocean has set us free

TRACK 2 : where did the time go

You came into this world born a mothers son 
Look into your eyes your life has just begun 
With your smallest breath you let out a new-born cry 
Standing here with tears of joy in our eyes 

The early years were not kind to you at all 
Without that someone to catch you when you fall 
A different town each day, a doorway for your bed 
Searching for a safer place to lay your head 

Where did the time go, all those days and nights alone 
What did you do with your life? 
Where did the time go there’s so much more for you to know 
And I miss you now, I miss you now. 

As the years go by we help you all we can 
On your journey to become a better man 
But this selfish world it finally takes its toll 
With this cruel cold winter taking your soul 

Where did the time go, all those days and nights alone 
What did you do with your life? 
Where did the time go there’s so much more for you to know 
And I miss you now 

Where did the time go, there’s no more days and nights alone 
What did you do with your life? 
Where did the time go there’s so much more for you to know 
And I miss you now…..

TRACK 3 : MONDAY

Monday morning comes around
I’ve got to shake of this HEAVY drunken from
and the 40 units from the night before
delivery driver slams the gate
alexa says it’s just gone 8
world leaders embark on another twitter war

And we’re blindly going forwards
never think on what we’ve done
Let’s not forget about tomorrow
Cause change is yet to come

Media outlets keep up their beat
Thousands more living out on the streets
As market rates fall through the floor
Highs street shops are closing Down
Build a cinema at the edge of town
More food banks for the working poor

And we’re blindly going forwards
Never think on what we’ve done
Let’s not forget about tomorrow
cause change is yet to come

Think about the days gone by
wasted moments flying high
let’s go outside fill our lungs with tar
come back get a round of drinks at the bar…the Bar!

Na na na, na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na, na na na
Na na na na na na nahhhhhhhh

Na na na, na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na, na na na
Na na na na na na nahhhhhhhh

Monday morning comes around
I’ve got to shake of this HEAVY drunken from
and the 40 units from the night before
delivery driver slams the gate
alexa says it’s just gone 8
and we carry on regardless like before

And we’re blindly going forwards
never think on what we’ve done
Let’s not forget about tomorrow
Cause change is yet to come
