about

Finally some new music I hear you say. It's a collection of 8 tracks with 2 songs included.
The tracks are mainly instrumental, some old and some new. One (Run On This Land) even going back 15 years or so, as I found the demo hidden away on my PC.
The two songs "Face To Face" and "Still Life" I wanted to get out there I wrote in my days with the band Quecia, not sure if we'll ever make any music together again but I felt it was such a shame to leave them sitting on my PC's hard drive. Hopefully the rest of the band will like what I've done and we'll finish some more of the many songs we still have...
The album is available here in digital format and with Bandcamp's options you can download the better quality files so you can hear them as they were intended. A Physical CD is also available, see details above.
I hope you enjoy the music and there's more to come.
Cheers - Chris

Track Name: Face To Face
Face to Face

I see the writing on the wall
It fades into the night and then its gone
For you, my dreams will all come true
It hurts, this pain inside for you

These dreams, awaken me inside
My love has nowhere left to hide
Inside a face appears to me
Alone, I’m lost and all at sea.

How can I believe you,
When everything you say is true
How can I deceive you
When you look at me and all I see is you

Our Time is only for tonight
And now my body’s lost in time
My face is old and I’m ashamed
I ache but heart can still remain

Chorus

Cos I’m face to face with broken dreams
Your face, the face I’ve always seen

Heartaches of children we once knew
We walked with no one there just you
The stars we look but we don’t see
The light is waiting there for me

Cos I’m face to face with broken dreams
Your face, the face I’ve always seen

Cos I’m face to face with broken dreams
Your face, the face I’ve always seen
Track Name: Still Life
STILL LIFE

I don’t know what you’re saying
I can’t read your mind
I don’t know where you’re going
I might as well be blind

I don’t know what the future holds
If there’s a chance for us
I don’t know if it’s over now
Still life says so much

Chorus
What do you really want from me
I’ve got to draw the line
I’ve gotta to know, can’t take no more
In and out of time
In and out of line
In and out of my mind???

I don’t want to be a prisoner
Tied up inside these walls
I’m not afraid of losing you
I just want to feel alive

Chorus

Middle 8

What do you want me to say
I’m alone in every way
What do you want me to do
I am so in love with you

I don’t want to be your saviour,
Fighting on till the bitter end
I don’t want to make this easier
It’s real life inside my head

CHORUS
