Story Behind The Album

Relationships are sometimes difficult… As we get older it seems wisdom, experience and fate all play their part.

Stormflower was written with a backdrop of frustration, confusion and desparation – there lies a path we have all experienced at some time in our lives.

We all come with baggage…

G-Slide James.

Every Day Of Our Lives

Get up in the morning,
Face what I can’t hide.
Dreams, inspirations, all get behind.
It’s the old routine,
Every day of our lives.

Tired of all the things we go through,
Every day of our lives.

Feelings haunt me deep inside,
I know it’s time to hide.
It’s the old routine,
Every day of our lives.

Tired of all the things we go through,
Every day of our lives.

Pushing you and pushing me,
That’s all it seems to be.
It’s the old routine,
Every day of our lives.

Tired of all the things we go through,
Every day of our lives.

Face my fears in the morning light,
Shed my tears when the moment’s right.
Give everything I wanna give,
Use my life, the one I live.

Face my fears in the morning light,
Shed my tears when the moment’s right.
Give everything I wanna give,
Use this life, the life I wanna live.

Play It True

First met her on the edge of nowhere,
A chance meeting on a Barroom stool.
Air was smoky as she talked down to me,
I racked them up for a game of pool.

Play it true, 
Play it straight down the line, play it true,
Play it straight down the line, please true,
Play it straight down the line, play it true.

I was just another deadbeat looser,
drinking whisky in a neon light.
She shined brighter than a flush of diamonds,
Dancing words just out of site.

Play it true,
Play it straight down the line, play it true,
Play it straight down the line, please true,
Play it straight down the line, play it true.

Damned delusions hit my mind,
Distant shadows stretched behind,
I saw my chance to play for all
Those conclusions caused my fall.

Play it true,
Play it straight down the line, play it true,
Play it straight down the line, please true,
Play it straight down the line, play it true.

Play it true,
Play it straight down the line, play it true,
Play it straight down the line, please true,
Play it straight down the line, play it true.

Play it true,
Play it true,
Play it true.

Saluting Our Heroes

And here we are,
Makes no sense to me,
Painted bright for all to see,
Yeeeah yeah yeah, all of the time.

And do we see,
All around is show and pride,
Too many fears unsatisfied,
Yeeeah yeah yeah, some of the time

In many long roads with too much climb,
Shed load of tears too many moments in time.
Every day thoughts of yesterday’s past,
Saluting our heroes to the bottom of the glass.

And do we know,
All around is dark and light,
Sunny days are in our sight,
Yeeeah yeah yeah, all of the time.

And here we go,
Kicking out our fears,
Living through the bloody year,
Yeeeah yeah yeah, all of the time.

In many long roads with too much climb,
Shed load of fears too many moments in time.
Every day thoughts of yesterday’s past,
Saluting our heroes to the bottom of the glass.

And here we are,
Makes no sense to me,
Painted bright for all to see,
Yeeeah yeah yeah, for all of the time.

Been And Gone

We shared a secret or two,
Some I even kept from you,
But I don’t know, I don’t know.

Seems every time we meet,
We talk but don’t really speak,
And I don’t know, I don’t know.

I don’t know the truth from blue skies,
After all we’ve said and done.
I now see the lies from dark skies,
After all that’s been and gone,
Been and gone, been and gone.

Saw the writing on the wall,
Made the decision to take the fall,
But I don’t know, I don’t know.

Sometimes we don’t see the cracks,
Feel the monkey on our backs,
And I don’t know, I don’t know.

I don’t know the truth from blue skies,
After all we’ve said and done,
I now see the lies from dark skies,
After all that’s been and gone,
Been and gone,
Been and gone,
Been and gone.

Maybe In Time

Did you say you were bound
To hit it right, right from the ground ?
And do you feel fine ?
Yeeeah, maybe in time.

When your up, up in the sky,
And you’re feeling all so high,
Try feeling the breeze,
Yeeeah, maybe in time.

Maybe in time, dance like nobody’s watching,
Maybe in time, love like you’ve never been hurt,
Maybe in time, sing like nobody’s listening,
Maybe in time, live like it’s heaven on earth,

Maybe in time, you’ve gotta dance like nobody’s watching,
Maybe in time, love like you’ve never been hurt,
Maybe in time, sing like nobody’s listening,
Maybe in time, showing what you’re really worth,
Maybe in time.

You gotta know who to be,
Do you see where you wanna be ?
Punch a fist in the air !
Maybe in time, (x2)

Do you know where to go ?
Do you see where you wanna be ?
Just open that door !
Maybe in time, (x2)

Maybe in time, dance like nobody’s watching,
Maybe in time, love like you’ve never been hurt,
Maybe in time, sing like nobody’s listening,
Maybe in time, live like it’s heaven on earth,

Maybe in time, dance like nobody’s watching,
Maybe in time, love like you’ve never been hurt,
Maybe in time, sing like nobody’s listening,
Maybe in time, showing what you’re really worth,

Maybe in time, (x 5)
Maybe !
Maybe in time,
Yes, maybe !
Maybe in time (x 19)

Wait To Leave

It’s never now, sometimes fun,
Get out of bed , no need, need to run.

Put on your clothes, pick up those shoes,
Leave the music play those old, old time blues.

On Friday next, if the weather holds,
We’ll play the game and we’ll score, score some goals.

And maybe, if we try our best,
We’ll call it a day and forget, forget the rest.

Wait, wait to leave. It’s easier to be gone,
Wait, please wait to leave. Don’t turn your back on.

If it’s raining hard, we’ll play some cards.
You can win because you always need to win.

Let’s take our time, drink some wine
Talk it through all the things, the things we’ve done.

Wait, wait to leave. It’s easier to be gone.
Wait, please wait to leave. Don’t turn your back on.

Stones In My Bed

Everything is silent, eyes are on the rocks,
You’re over by the glasshouse, looking at empty docks.
Take me to your gold mine, show me the dreams in your head.
I’m begging with you lover, kick these stones out of my bed.

You’ve met my brother Michael, he has a stone on his cross.
Eyes that burn your heart out, just like chili sauce.
I’ve got three wheels on my Mercedes, I’ve got a mission in my head.
I’m begging with you lover, kick these stones out of my bed.

Take me in the darkness, sure as my shirt is black
Take you and your religion, put scars cross my back.
Meet me at the crossroads, I’ll buy you one last drink.
Lye me in a bed of comfort, take me before we sink.

We used to be an item, now I don’t recall,
Tell me was it good love, or just poisoned alcool.
Tell me was it good love, or just poisoned alcool.
Tell me was it good love, or just poisoned alcool.

Baggage

Now that you are part of me,
Seems all so clear to me,
Where I went wrong.

It’s not that we have to be,
More like we want to be,
Getting it right.

Drank too much Chablis,
Threw away life’s great key,
Couldn’t get it right.

You gave me courtesy,
It felt like a guarantee,
We’d always be right.

Everyone comes with baggage,
I need you to help me unpack.
Yes everyone comes with baggage,
I need you to help me unpack.

Unpack my worries,
Go fast and hurry,
Show me the way.

Let’s think forever,
Don’t mind the weather
Learn to be strong.

See out the bad times,
Kiss off the sad times,
Be there for us.

Wash off the days sweat,
Drink to the sunset,
Be there for us.

Everyone comes with baggage,
And I need you to help me unpack.
Yes everyone comes with baggage,
I need you to help me unpack.

Now that you are part of me,
Seems all so clear to me,
Where I went wrong.

It’s not that we have to be,
More like we want to be,
Getting it right.

Drank too much Chablis,
Threw away life’s great key,
Couldn’t get it right.

You gave me courtesy,
It felt like a guarantee,
We’d always be right.

Everyone comes with baggage,
And I need you to help me unpack.
Yes everyone comes with baggage,
I need you to help me unpack.

Everyone’s Fool

He’s a grump at the party, a pain from the past.
A man in his eighties. Just smoking some grass.
plays on your nerves, like my creaky old door.
So irritating, like the hole in my floor.

He’s a blot on the landscape, a floater in my pool.
A crack in my windscreen, but nobody’s fool.
Nobody’s fool, ah ah nobody’s fool.

He don’t like summer, And he don’t like the cold.
Likes the odd vino. But now he’s been told.
You see him everywhere. Makes everyone mad.
No idea of manners. Just my grumpy old dad.

He’s a blot on the landscape, a floater in your pool.
A crack in your windscreen, but nobody’s fool.
He’s nobody’s fool, yeah yeah nobody’s fool, ah ha.

Now I look in the mirror, and here’s what I see.
A grumpy old man, staring back at me.
I’m a grumpy old son, just a chip off the block.
Life of regrets, down on my luck.

He’s just a blot on the landscape, a motor mouth fool.
Got a sack full of sorrows. I’m everyone’s fool.
I’m everyone’s fool, yeah yeah,
I’m everyone’s fool, yeah, yeah.

He’s just a blot on the landscape, a motor mouth fool.
Got a sack full of sorrows. I’m everyone’s fool.
I’m everyone’s fool, yeah yeah,
I know it’s been all wrong.
I’m everyone’s fool, yeah, yeah.
I know it’s been too long.
I’m everyone’s fool.

Road Less Travelled

You say you’re strong,
You can’t be wrong.
Your stumbles are just stepping stones,
No grazed knees or broken bones.
You sang your song,
So you can’t be wrong.

Walking down the road less travelled,
All your fears and images just unravelled, now.

Your body’s gone,
The minds all wrong.
Travel through your dark of darkness,
Take deep breaths soldier on, regardless.

Walking down the road less travelled,
All your fears and images just unravelled, now.

You say you’re strong,
You’re O so wrong.
Building on the strong foundation,
Watch your step across undulation.

Walking down the road less travelled,
All your fears and images just unravelled.
Walking down the road less travelled,
All your fears and images just unravelled, now.

Stormflower

The world spins on dreamers,
Devotion, faith and greed.

The world spins on dreamers,
Starving us of need.

Just because you can’t see it,
Doesn’t mean it’s not there.
Just because you can’t feel it,
Doesn’t mean you don’t care.

The world’s full of dreamers,
Forgetting the piercing wounds.

A sea full of schemers, 
Selling a forgotten tune.

Just because you can’t see it,
Doesn’t mean it’s not there.
Just because you can’t hear it,
Doesn’t mean you don’t care.

With stormflowers in my coffee,
I can read your mind.

With a cupful of order,
We can make our lives fly.

Just because you can’t see it,
Doesn’t mean it’s not there.
Just because you can’t hear it,
Doesn’t mean you don’t care.

Stormflowers in my coffee,
I can read your mind.

With a cupful of order,
We can make our lives fly.

Just because you can’t see it,
Doesn’t mean it’s not there.
Just because you can’t hear it,
Doesn’t mean I don’t care.
