Well I must have had my moment But I don't remember when. And things are not so different now To how they were back then. But time passes in disguise Blink and it is gone, And in its wake you're wondering Where it is you now belong. Am I still the same within And do I seem the same to you? Look into these eyes and all you'll see Is a Certain Shade of Blue. Ask a stupid question Pay no heed to the reply He told her she was still Beautiful in his eyes. Lately I've been dreaming of the city Dreaming of the sky I dream an endless question And the answer's always "Why? Am I still the same within And do I seem the same to you? Look into these eyes and all you'll see Is a Certain Shade of Blue. Oh capture me and call me in I'm tired of drifting through Look into these eyes and you'll see A Certain Shade of Blue. I've been in hibernation But I couldn't tell you why. I haven't reached my destination And I know that I must try. I have to figure out Just what it is I need to say. 'Cos I'm too young for my coffin, Too warm for my own grave. Am I still the same within And do I seem the same to you? Look into these eyes and all you'll see Is a Certain Shade of Blue. Oh capture me and call me in I'm tired of drifting through Look into these eyes and you'll see A Certain Shade of Blue.

At 32 03:22
Won't you help me find A cause to get behind I can't do it on my own Won't you help me be The best that I can be Like the one you used to know Oh it's hard when you're paralysed by A sense of foolish pride And so hard to be washed up and blue At 32 There's a hole in me A space where you should be Under my skin I know that love is here I know it's everywhere But I can't feel it anymore Oh it's hard when you're paralysed by a sense of foolish pride And so hard to be washed up and blue At 32

Naked 04:16
Here I stand; naked What you see is what you get I'm not young Take off your lenses Do you see beyond the skin and the bone I could be your mother I could be your daughter Could be your sister, your lover your friend x2 I have been pretending To be something that I'm not I'm not young I have been inauthentic, I have stolen I have cheated I have come undone CHORUS: I could be etc I won't deny my wisdom I have paid the price of living And I'm no longer very very young Do you see your reflection Do you see yourself in me, are we as one? CHORUS
4.
Pay the piper Pay the price If it comes for free It's half as nice See what you want and you want what you see Well you cold have her but you can't have me And it's all very well All very gay But you don't get paid till Christmas day And it won't take long That's what you say But we all need money for bills to pay
5.
You're not a baby anymore and I can't love you like I did before You're no angel that's for sure and You've got a lot to answer for My my my How time flies Seems like you We're never really mine The scales have fallen from my eyes and I can't listen to your self deluded lies You're not a baby anymore and I can't love you like I did before
6.
They say if a light shines A little too brightly It goes out quicker than the rest Well your light shone like Phosphorescence on A troubled sea Brilliant and gold You were angry and warlike Pitiful and childlike Loving and cold Who's to say Maybe there's no p,an Perhaps it's all just give Either way we have to feed the day And learn how to live Learn how to live They say if a song goes, On too long It becomes boring in the end Well you sang your song Loud and strong No compromise No lies You were angry and war like, etc Who's to say Maybe there's no plan Perhaps it's all just chance Either way we've got to seize the day And learn how to dance Who's to say etc
7.
What could I do? My heart went out to you All the time in the world to be sorry now And if we could change time I'd be first in the queue I'd go back to when I first met you Only a fool like me Is to blind to see I made my own prison and I Threw away the key Who's crying now? X3 I guess it's me Well how could I know You never let your true feeling show If only I knew then What I know now And if we could change time Would you still be Quite so unkind? I Guess I'll never know I'll never know Only a fool like me etc
8.
Shame 04:11
This house is our home But what is a home without love To keep us both warm The feeling has died But the spirit lives on And though we bit try we can't hide Something has gone And it's a shame Shame on you and me But if we open our eyes wide enough We will see All that remains Are a few cherished dreams Of what could come true If we could come through And start again All the love we made Where did it all go If you really care how's the time To let me know And if its too late Well you'd better say so Cos we can go in making plans, and telling lies Just for show And it's a shame etc Is it too late Is what I a asking you Look me in the eyes And tell me the truth Cos it's a shame etc.
9.
Some kind of bliss Is what you make me feel And more than this I vow to make you happy One last kiss To mark the passage of this love Night and day I want to be with you I every way My heart is beating like a drum for you Oh tell me that you feel the Same way too
10.
Gather round you children Here's a little piece of history When I first met your daddy I was wild and free Then we got together And made perfect harmony Between a man and a woman That's how it should be Between a man and a woman That's how it's suppose to be And that's poetry in motion x3 Now that you are older The big wheel of life moves on Soon you will be finding Partners of your own Don't look for perfection Individually Cos it's harmony that matters And that's how it should be And that's poetry in motion etc

about

This album has some brand new songs on it, some previously unrecorded material and a couple of older numbers that have been re visited.

What’s lovely for me is that the singers and musicians I work with most these days in the Cindy Stratton Band are all featured here somewhere. This makes the album very special for me.

Hopefully the songs speak for themselves, but I have written a little bit about some of the individual tracks.

A big thank you to two special people: Toby Charlwood at Tobes Music, who put in hours of mixing and mastering to get each track sounding amazing, and Marius Frank who spent hours recording me.
Hope you enjoy the album.

Marius adds: "Toby, I cannot thank you enough either for the time and expertise you've given us.

I'd also like to credit the influence of my amazing brother, Marc Frank. I was just a muso with an ear before Marcy set to work on me. I have watched and learned a legend at work over the past twenty years... I simply could not have recorded and produced this piece of work without you... thank you 'bro!"
