Track Name: Back At The Start
Back at the Start

There’s a wind racing through the depths of your soul
Tearing away the debris so old,
And you can’t understand your identity has blown away

Moving through the night you sleep all alone,
Memories like stitches, in dreams they are sewn,
Clothes so worn, underneath you are naked and cold

Though the walls are made of stone, there’s a fire inside,
We gather round the flames like the bugs to the light,
Its comforting to know that we’re out of the cold tonight

Tonight, so where to begin?
We’ll cry, sharing meaning,
And if it comes from the heart,
We’ll be back at the start again

Song-lines we walk leading us home,
Tracks undefined but they’re feeding our souls,
Hoping to find, a grace that is kind and free

Tonight, so where to begin?
We cry, sharing meaning,
And if it comes from the heart,
We’ll be back at the start again

BREAKDOWN

Though the walls are made of stone, there’s a fire inside,
We gather round the flames like the bugs to the light,
Its comforting to know that we’re out of the cold tonight

Tonight, so where to begin
So cry, and share the meaning
And we’ll die, and come back again
If it comes from the heart,
We’ll be back at the start again
Track Name: Burnished Gold
Burnished Gold
Capo on 2rd Fret

Am Em (6 /8)
Chorus
Am Em Dm Am Em
Burnished gold, burnished gold eyes like fire, marking my soul

Verse Rhythm (4/4)
Am F C
There’s an echo in the canyon, from a time long ago,
G Am Em
Down by the river, where the old stories flowed,
Plants were the medicine, and the animals know,
Signs like a roadmap always showing where to go

Chorus (6/8)

Am Em Dm Am Em
Burnished gold, burnished gold eyes like fire, marking my soul
Am F C G Am Em
Burnished gold, burnished gold, runs through the valleys, carries me home, burnished gold

Instrumental
2 x Am Em Dm Am Em

Verse Rhythm (4/4)
Am F C
She sits by the water, her raven hair flows,
G Am Em
He sits down beside her with his feathers and his bow,
They ride on the wild horse, across prairies they roam,
Seduced by a great spirit,
A connection that grows
A connection that grows


Am Em Dm Am Em
Burnished gold, burnished gold eyes like fire, marking my soul
Am F C G Am Em
Burnished gold, burnished gold, runs through the valleys, carries me home, burnished gold

Am Em
burnished gold
END: Am F C

Track Name: A Horse Called Freedom
A Horse Called Freedom

Now I’m a warrior
With a painted ¬¬¬¬¬ truth,
But it won’t save me, if I can’t find you,
I see a black cockatoo cross the sky,
I’m going to move my camp, up a little higher

If there’s a horse called freedom out there,
I will hear you call my name
A horse called freedom out there
We will ride away

I taste the goodness in the water,
And feel the warmth from the fire,
My feet touch the earth, the earth touches me,I will retire.

If there’s a horse called freedom out there,
I will hear you call my name,
A horse called freedom out there
We will ride away


Over the hills, to the valley of kings,
We will ride away
Track Name: Good Feelings
Good feelings
Oh murky waters, you’re blocking my vision,
Looking through shadows and I’m wishing,
The scars of the past, won’t be my resistance, I’ll sharpen my wills blade and kill these old conditions

Flawed beliefs I carry, are now cast on the fire,
They burn like the sun, lifting me higher,
Way up in the clouds, there can be no limitations,
Cutting the chords that bind, it’s a revelation

Good feelings will guide us to a home
When everything old has moved along
Good feelings will guide us to a home

So you’re out of the gutter, warm meals on the table,
So many are helping if you’re willing and able,
There’s a sign on the wall, & its starting to crumble,
Foundations are shaking, get out of the rubble

Good feelings will guide us to a home
When everything old has moved along
Good feelings will guide us to a home


Sometimes you know you just got to feel this space alone,
Out here in the wilderness it’s so strong,
Temptation she follows behind, lurks in your shadow
So seek the devils embrace before you can let her go

Good feelings will guide us to a home
When everything old has moved along
Good feelings will guide us to a home

Dark clouds parting, blue sky in front of me
Arms wide open know, you know that you’re free
You’re free.
Track Name: Firebird
FIREBIRD
Hear me, help me, heal me cause I’m hurting, and I don’t want to feel this way.

Firebird, everything’s changing, just like you said that it would,
Firebird, I hope that I will see you again

These places, your taking me,
out from the dark sea,
In this dreaming, we’re sailing free

Firebird, everything’s changing, just like you said that it would,
Firebird, I hope that I will see you again

I think it’s the time, I’m ready, a little unsteady for the
climb
I hope that I will see you again, I hope that I will see you, I know that I will see you again….

Firebird, everything’s changing, just like you said that it would,
Firebird, I hope that I will see you again

Firebird, up the hills, lighting the darkest of worlds,
Firebird, I know that I will see you again
Track Name: So We Can See
SO WE CAN SEE
Dreams can be made and dreams can be held
But they shatter like anything else,
When the pressure builds, we crack like thunder

Moving along like trains in the night,
With rattles and aches and there’s splinters of light,
Nowhere to go, cause we’re already here

So now where do we go, where do we go when we don’t really know
Light candle so you can show me

Swimming along in these oceans of time,
Coming up for breath please bring me some wine,
Play me a song, play me some life

So now where do we go, where do we go when we don’t really know
Light candle so you can show me
Oh now we can be free, up with the stars and their chemistry,
Strip us of the dark so we can see
Where do we go, where do we go when we don’t really know
Strip us of the dark so we can see
Light candle so you can show me

You can show me
Track Name: In The End
In the End
Walking down the road, it’s been a long time since I left home, warm breeze kissing my forehead,

Left the phone back at the station
So much time for contemplation
Under this tree, I’ll make my bed

Sick and tired of a screen generation,
Facebook’s fading, there’s a new way of relating,

Taking it slow, got no place left to go
Only have to find ourselves, in the end

Further down the road,
There’s a river made for swimming,
It wraps itself around me like a friend,

Somewhere back at that station, I cant hear the phone’s still ringing,
But I don’t care my soul is singing, till the end

We’re taking it slow, got no place left to go
Only have to find ourselves in the end
Under this tree is a fine place for me,
Going to rest my weary head

We’re taking it slow, got no place left to go
Only have to find ourselves in the end

We have to be wild heart,
Like we were back at the start

We’re taking it slow, got no place left to go
Only have to find ourselves in the end
Under this tree is a fine place for me,
Going to rest my weary head

We’re taking it slow, got no place left to go
Only have to find ourselves in the end

In the end
