Soak Through


In this life, it's true to say that there are lumps.  It is also true to say that in this life there are bumps.
For these reasons, we thought
it was appropriate to name this collection of songs "In this life, it's true to say that there are.".

The Space Between the Stars
- a voice from beyond the grave.....

Any More? - the spirit
remains willing and strong,
but the flesh has weakened
and continues to do so.....

My name is Ana doesn't so much tell a story as attempt to capture a moment - or a few moments - of joy in the life
of a child, witnessed by chance by a passing stranger.

Harlow's Monkey - damaged children
grow up to become damaged adults.........

We Used To Fly  (Don't Mention Its Name) - fragmented memories
of the present day
from a not too distant

Soak Through - in the half-way realm between wakefulness and sleep, powerful emotions can convey the mind into disturbing distortions of reality.....

The Pizza Song
- this was indeed
a modernday romance....

Glass Bubble Home - our past is catching up with us;  the future is here now and there isn't a lot of it left.


Victoria! - an anthem for Hartlepool United Football Club


Cloud is a duel
- and also a love song.

(Not Bad for a) Shy Boy Lost
- the exhilaration of a crush

Hesitate - a familiar theme which also crops up elsewhere

as "what's the use of so much so called potential if it's wasted?" and "Life is not a rehearsal" amongst other places
