about

This four-track recording comprises remastered versions of songs from the first album Far From Entirely. The idea for the EP came about whilst recording the album at Hi-Top Productions studio. Any song on the album was written on guitar, the founding instrument on almost all of the songs. I had a good idea how I wanted each song to eventually sound but the truth is I still love hearing these songs live. Just me and the guitar. So, I wanted to give listeners a sense of that. For those people who rarely see me perform live, this might give you a better idea.

Track Name: Fairytale Lies
Why don’t you look at me square in the eyes?
What is it baby, that you’re hiding behind?
Is there something you want?
Is there something you need?
Why don’t you speak to me face to face?
What is it baby, do you feel out of place?
To tell me what you want, to tell me what you need

You’re always wanting something for nothing
Well not anymore, this time I’m really sure

Whatever line you’re trying to sell, I’m not buying it
Whatever tale you’re trying to tell, you’re not hiding it
‘Cause I see through your fairytale lies, I’m through with make believe

You used you try to be a little more kind
But there’s a change in you that’s making you blind
To seeing what I want, to seeing what I need

You’re always wanting something for nothing
Well not anymore, this time I’m really sure

Whatever line you’re trying to sell, I’m not buying it
Whatever tale you’re trying to tell, you’re not hiding it
‘Cause I see through your fairytale lies, I’m through with make believe
Whatever rules you’re trying to change, I’m not buying it
Whatever game you’re trying to play, you’re not hiding it
‘Cause I see through your fairytale lies, I’m through with make believe

We had our once upon a time when love was all we needed to breathe
But while I had the rhyme it seems you lost the reason to feel

Whatever line you’re trying to sell, I’m not buying it
Whatever tale you’re trying to tell, you’re not hiding it
‘Cause I see through your fairytale lies, I’m through with make believe
Whatever rules you’re trying to change, I’m not buying it
Whatever game you’re trying to play, you’re not hiding it
‘Cause I see through your fairytale lies, I’m through with make believe
Track Name: Heaven In Your Eyes
You’re turning me on, come on, undress me with your eyes
You don’t give an inch and I ain’t seeking a mile
Just make up your mind and find the sense you had of me
That night you let me hold you in my arms
I’ve got to know where in the hell do I really stand?

‘Cause everyday in everyway you’re pulling me closer
I can’t run or hide and believe me, I’ve tried
If you don’t want me I’d rather see hell than heaven in your eyes
Heaven in your eyes

I used to find words to say a lover’s natural way
They’d flow inside of me and rain on you
But now I can’t speak or sleep ‘cause I’m so in love with you
And loving wasteland is what it’s come down to
I’ve got to know where in the hell do I really stand?

‘Cause everyday in everyway you’re pulling me closer
I can’t run or hide and believe me, I’ve tried
If you don’t want me I’d rather see hell

Just tell me you never felt, anything at all for me
And show me your eyes when you say, ‘girl you’ve got it all wrong, I never tried it on’

‘Cause everyday in everyway you’re pulling me closer
I can’t run or hide and believe me, I’ve tried
If you don’t want me I’d rather see hell
‘Cause everyday in everyway you’re pulling me, pulling me, pulling me closer
I can’t run or hide and believe me, I’ve tried
If you don’t want me I’d rather see hell than heaven in your eyes
Track Name: Dream of the Night
I saw a lady take a cigarette
Her body swaying, I knew our eyes had met
In a hazy time when she drew the line
In a shady place called heaven's gate

I saw her reeling and walk in front of me
And had a feeling, a cold reality
She was not alone on the second round

Looking around, in a way
Eyes never blind but how they stare
How they stare when love is taking

Over me, silently like a free dream of the night
Over me, silently like a free dream of the night

She murmured softly to someone at her side
Silent only by those mystified
But I could read her lips, every single line
And there I felt I lost what the devil found

Looking around in a place
Memories fade, just a face
Seeing the changes,
They're killing me, killing me baby

Over me, silently like a free dream of the night
Over me, silently like a free dream of the night

Over me, silently like a free dream of the night
Over me, silently like a free dream of the night
Track Name: Ties of Love
Walking around looks like this way again today
You crowd my mind
The feelings, they never go. Looking back through a café window
I need to tell you so, with these placated eyes

These times are killing me
And these times are willing me to calling your name, calling your name

Rising sun is in a prayer, sinners’ words in the air
When I think what you want and I find that you don’t it’s just killing me
Rising sun is in a prayer, sinners’ words in the air
And they’re weighing me down, twisting around
Breaking the ties of love

I tried running away, hoping cobbled streets would take me
From all this pain
But I realize, ties that bind still wrap around my heart and
I need to tell you so, with these ever-willful eyes

These times are killing me
But I’m finally willing to stop calling your name, calling your name

Rising sun is in a prayer, sinners’ words in the air
When I think what you want and I find that you don’t it’s just killing me
Rising sun is in a prayer, sinners’ words in the air
And they’re weighing me down, twisting around, what about love

Rising sun is in a prayer, sinners’ words in the air
When I think what you want and I find that you don’t it’s just killing me
Rising sun is in a prayer, sinners’ words in the air
And they’re weighing me down, twisting around
Breaking the ties of love of love, of love, of love, of love
Of love, of love, ties of love, of love
