Martin Parker I love this record because it has so many layers. Layers of instruments layers of lyrics and layers of meaning. And it all lays on top of the bedrock of Sotto Voce which it draws from and expands upon. Love it. Favorite track: Hold.

Track Name: Shadows
She stands alone to face the world
A tiny voice in a sea of shame
The only one who could be strong
Too much pressure to right this wrong

Too scared to hurt the ones she loves
A life of pain the only choice
Through the lies she thinks she’s safe
A distant memory locked away

She knows it, I know it. We both know the truth

We may be shadows from her distant past
We never meant no harm
We’re only searching for answers
We may be shadows from her distant past
We never meant no harm
We’re only searching for answers

Through the years she buried deep
All the memories too hard to face
The world she lives in has no place
For the ones she left behind

No-one to blame, there is no hate
We’re just victims of a bygone age
We’re just trying to make some sense
Reaching out to take her hand

She knows it, I know it. We both know the truth

We may be shadows from her distant past
We never meant no harm
We’re only searching for answers
We may be shadows from her distant past
We never meant no harm
We’re only searching for answers
Track Name: Star of the Sea
Star of the sea, I miss you
Star of the sea, I need you
Star of the sea, I feel you
Star of the sea, I can free you

I know you think that I’m angry
The only thing I feel is frustration
I want to take you in my arms
And tell you everything will be Ok

Star of the sea, I miss you
Star of the sea, I need you
Star of the sea, I feel you
Star of the sea, I can free you

You use the walls to protect you
In every storm, you always find a port
I want to calm the waves around you
And tell you everything will be Ok

Everything will be Ok, everything will be Ok
Everything will be Ok, everything will be Ok

I know the time isn’t right now
I have the patience to hold on
I know the time isn’t right now
But everything will be Ok… Some day
Track Name: Hold
I've dug up my past and buried my fears
Waiting for an echo, hoping you're near
With an empty mind and open heart
This isn't the end, it's just the start

I try to stay calm, but inside I'm churning
I know what I want, my heart is burning
I speak to you through fading tears
Reaching out across the years

As I hold my breath, Hold on tight
As the light fades all around, Hold me tight
As your world consumes me, Hold on tight
And my walls come tumbling down

My spirit is strong, you know I'm still waiting
The truth is simple, no more deliberating
Speak to me with open ears
Let me help to quell your fears

As I hold my breath, Hold on tight
As the light fades all around, Hold me tight
As your world consumes me, Hold on tight
And my walls come tumbling down
Track Name: Xmyheart
3am, the night is young
You lie and wait for my return
Another hour will do no harm
You’ll wait for me, eternally

Cross my heart and hope to die
I long for all the things you hide
I need your heart, you are my guide
Would I lie to you, would I lie to…

Close your eyes, shut out the light
You shouldn’t see me leave, maintain the darkness
I’ll turn my back, on all that needs
My attention, denying satisfaction

Cross my heart and hope to die
I long for all the things you hide
I need your heart, you are my guide
Would I lie to you, would I lie to…

I kiss your lips, you long for more
You touch my skin, I’ll never let you in
I’ve given all I have to give
Enough to keep you here, not too near

Cross my heart and hope to die
I long for all the things you hide
I need your heart, you are my guide
Would I lie to you, would I lie to…
Track Name: Secret Sister
Are you the girl with deep brown eyes
That hides a secret just like mine
Living in a world you don’t belong to

Do you have thoughts the same as me
Of all the things that could have been
Dwelling on a past that never happened

We share the things that make us real
We’ve grown apart, but still I feel
One day soon we’ll finally know each other

And when we do, I hope and pray
The bond is strong enough to stay
To light the path the two of us must wander

You are the same as me, at least that’s how I feel
I didn’t know I needed you to help this wound to heal
When I find out who you are, I hope you feel the same
So many years we’ve left behind and still so much to gain

My Secret, My Secret Sister…
Track Name: 7th Minor
... and only hope was left
Within her unbreakable house
She remained under the lip of the jar
And did not fly away
And did not fly away...
