Biography

Originally from the UK Richard Ingamells has lived in West Auckland, New Zealand since 2001. In the UK Richard worked as a street musician for 10 years playing slow tunes on the flute to old ladies.

The songs here are from the forthcoming album Love and Life. They show a radical departure from his former career as a flautist and for the 1st time feature his song writing skills, vocals and multi-layered instrumentation.

The whole project was recorded in 2008 in Richard's shed in Glen Eden, Auckland using an Apple Mac running Logic and it was mixed and mastered in New Lynn by Warren Mendonsa.

Lyrics

Fall

Written By: Richard Ingamells

THE WORLD IS TURNING
BRACE YOURSELF FOR BROKEN DREAMS
EVERYTHING IN EXTREMES
THE WORLD IS TURNING

AND WE’RE NOT LEARNING
WE KNEW IN ‘72 ABOUT OUR GREED
AND WHAT IT MIGHT DO
AND WE’RE NOT LEARNING

I KNOW YOU THINK
YOU'VE HEARD IT ALL BEFORE
BUT THIS TIME THERE IS NO TIME
WE'RE GONNA FALL

YOU FEEL A YEARNING
WHISPERS FROM A HIGHER PLACE
WAITING FOR GOD'S EMBRACE
YOU FEEL A YEARNING

SOUL FIRES ARE BURNING
OPEN YOUR HEART, LOSE YOUR MIND
IT CAN BE SO UNKIND
SOUL FIRES ARE BURNING

I KNOW ...

Release

Written By: Richard Ingamells

Here is my prayer
To the higher power

Here is my prayer
To the higher power
I call on you now
In these dark hours
Come light up my life
Show me the way.
It’s a beautiful world;
Now I’ve something to say

I’ve been holding back
For far too many years
Pushing down the pain
And choaking on my tears
The more things change
The more they stay the same
I’m really over this
There’s no one to blame

Release
In love and peace

The Key to Your Heart

Written By: Richard Ingamells

What is the key to your heart?
Tell me the key to your heart

Twelve thousand miles
Just to be by your side
Twelve thousand miles
How can this love be denied?

What is the key...

I lie awake
And I’m I thinking of you
There must be a way
To end the pain
I’m going through

What is the key...

Twelve thousand miles
And I’m drifting away
Twelve thousand miles
Oh please let me stay

What is the key...

I lie awake
And I’m thinking of you
Make no mistake
My love will be
Forever true

What is the key to your heart?

I Never Thought

Written By: Richard Ingamells

I never thought it would end this way
So many years have gone by
Always thought you would stay
God knows how many tears I have cried

Time to say goodbye
I keep the memories in my heart
I guess i’ll always wonder why
But every end is a new start

But every end

These are the memories of our love
