Lyrics

Free

Written By: Catherine Golden

Verse 1
It's a blue day
For my blue mind
Am I one of a kind
Is it just the times

It's a new day
I could run away
Has it got too late
Will it be worth the wait

Chorus
Now I'm free
To stay away from you
Your point of view
There's nothing else I can do

Verse 2
You cared for me
You held the key
We touched the glory
How did it start to bore me?

In my usual way
I could waste the day
It's so beautiful
To remember you

Chorus

Bridge
What have we got to lose?
Maybe nothing
What have we got to lose?
Maybe everything

Yesterday we had something
What we had was fleeting
Now we've only got ourselves

Chorus x 2

The Ties That Bind

Written By: Catherine Golden

Verse 1
At first I stumbled through the motions, set adrift from you, my love
The sadness left me spiralling through waves of emptiness
I forced myself to smile along, but my heart was torn in two
And though we touch along the way, we drift so far apart

Chorus
You are the ties that bind me to you
You are the ties that bind me to you

Verse 2
I brace myself to lose control every time I hear your voice
I tell myself to feel the hope and to brave the world alone
I weave the possibilities to make up my new life
And moments come, and moments go, but only this remains

Chorus x 2

Living The Proof

Written By: Catherine Golden

Verse 1
Why don't you just say what you mean?
'Cause I don't know what I mean when I'm speaking
You say you know, but you know by no means
All I know is I better start believing

Chorus 1
I believe in the truth that I am seeing
I'm seeing some proof that we're deceiving
I cut myself aloof, at least I'm being
It's time for living the proof - hell yeah!

Verse 2
Heaviness is all around me
Darkness is the anchor to my soul
Your bright lights circle round me, nearly
Let the weightlessness consume you

Chorus 2
If I follow your light, where will it find me?
Spinning close to the bright, so hot it blinds me
I see through to the truth that we are being
It's time for living the proof - hell yeah!

Bridge
This lightness in my heart is thrilling me
This lightness in my heart is killing me
I need a rope to hold me to myself
Why can't we just be somebody else?

Chorus 1
Chorus 2

Sweet Petal

Written By: Catherine Golden

Chorus 1
Lie soft, sweet petal
Shake, shiver, moan
Night flickers into day
And our bodies are as one

Verse 1
I could see the storm from afar, far away
And it grew, in the minds of the few
And the waves kept pummelling, pummelling down so hard
In my heart, you will never wash away

Chorus

Verse 2
If I opened my heart into the depths of the night, the night
There would be no space for light
All my oceans would pour forth to the land, the land
There would be no place to stand

Refrain
Sweet as the springtime of love's innocence
Soft as the petal that touched us by chance
Lay down beside me, lay down with me,
Lay down with me

Bridge
Oh my darling, let's unleash the tide
Of this longing, that we hold inside
Oh my darling, let us shine the light
Of the yearnings that burn in us tonight

Chorus x 2
