Fill my cup Pour me out On to the streets Of this town Drink from me And wash your wounds And swim inside me, nightly By the light of the moon Take my eyes To see the world And with my ears Attend virtuous words And use my skin To keep you warm For I did love you, all along Yes all along Chorus I would give you my heart and my blood And my bones and my heart and my blood and my heart I would give you my heart and my blood And my bones and my heart and my blood and my heart My possessions Spread them ‘round My money Use for things unfound For there were no jewels No arcane drawers I was no queen But I was yours Yes I was yours Chorus X 2 I would give you my heart and my blood And my bones and my heart and my blood and my heart I would give you my heart and my blood And my bones and my heart and my blood and my heart Life is short and I want you to Fill it with your heart’s desire You can make it look like anything you want, my love

I feel your eyes marvelling I know that you want to touch me A borderline so cruel, unfair Prevent your arms to ever sway me I’m Venus de Milo in your mind Broken by the hands of time Half Chorus Tear me apart Smash me to bits Kill me with your heart Tear me apart love I was cold, as cold as stone An ice maiden sitting upon her throne And with one glance, a single tear Fell down my cheek and buried into the snow I’m Venus de Milo in your mind Broken by the hands of time Chorus Tear me apart Smash me to bits Kill me with your heart Aching to feel Anything real Wound me with your art Tear me apart love I’ve learnt to run so fast So as to not listen to all the voices that tell me to stop I’ve been dodging darts Like the arrows you’re shooting to find your way to my heart Venus de Milo, in your mind I’m broken by the hands of time Chorus Tear me apart Smash me to bits Kill me with your heart Aching to feel Anything real Wound me with your art Tear me apart Smash me to bits Kill me with your heart Aching to feel Anything real Wound me with your art Tear me apart love Tear me apart love

Send all the king’s horses and all the king’s men For our hero has fallen off the crooked fence He always picks himself up; always recompensed So now we all just stand around talking to our friends (Oh) Send all the king’s horses, his men and women too I’ve never seen our hero unable to move He always picks himself up; always follows through So now we all just stand around not knowing what to do (Oh) Chorus Teach your children how to love Teach your children how to love One another, brother, father, mother… Send all the kings horses, his cows and sheep abound I cannot get our hero up from off the ground He used to laugh and smile a lot but now won’t make a sound How do you fix the one who fixes you - I don’t know how Chorus Teach your children how to love Teach your children how to love One another, brother, father, mother… Oooooo… Oooooo… Hold everything that you love in your hands, in your hands Everything that you love gently in, in your hands Hold everything that you love in your hands, in your hands Everything that you love gently in, in your hands Chorus Teach your children how to love Teach your children how to love One another, brother, father, mother… You gotta pick yourself up so we can put you back to… You gotta pick yourself up so we can put you back together Mother, father

Down Down Down Down…Way Down Down Down Down… I’ve been longing to stretch these aches and pains But this bed grows smaller every day My shoes don’t fit; my hair does not sit Dead skin left from this incessant itch Chorus But I’ve been searching for a secret Hiding in the shadows so I can keep it I’m Peter Pan; I’m Tinkerbell If anyone asks I’ve been doing swell Flying high so no one knows I’m on the way down Down Down Down Down…Way Down Down Down Down… I’ve been screaming into an empty void For the insecure and the paranoid My shoes don’t fit; my hair does not sit Dead skin left from this incessant itch Chorus But I’ve been searching for a secret Hiding in the shadows so I can keep it I’m Peter Pan; I’m Tinkerbell If anyone asks I’ve been doing swell Flying high so no one knows I’m on the way down Down Down Down Down Gotta get out of here Gotta get out of here Down Down Down Down Down Down Down…. Chorus I’m Peter Pan; I’m Tinkerbell If anyone asks I’ve been doing swell Flying high so no one knows I’m on the way down I’m Peter Pan; I’m Tinkerbell If anyone asks I’ve been doing swell Flying high so no one knows I’m on the way down Down Down Down Down…Way Down Down Down Down…Way Down.

Head in the clouds (Oh) Head in the clouds (Oh) My head’s in the clouds (Oh) We found each other On the gold brick road To seek something bigger Than ever before We were both lions And tin men together Longing to love and to live And be brave enough to roar Head in the clouds (Oh) Head in the clouds (Oh) My head’s in the clouds (Oh) But they say life’s what happens When you’re making plans To the beat of a drum To the map in the sand One must follow the voice That calls out through the land But must hear the one whispering softly To hold out your hand Head in the clouds (Oh) Head in the clouds (Oh) My head’s in the clouds (Oh) Now there will always be An Emerald City With Wizards and Witches And magic galore But there’s only one of The thing that I love most And I’m gunna love you Forever and ever more… Head in the clouds (Oh) Head in the clouds (Oh) My head’s in the clouds (Oh) etc…

about

"Red" is the second release from my 2013 digital EP Trilogy.

It is a collection of songs that touch on themes of the heart.

I recorded this EP with the inimitable Fronz Arp at Airlock Studios in Brisbane AND in my UNair-conditioned lounge room in Ashgrove during the height of summer. It was recorded without a budget...just a lot of love and passion for the music.

It's because of all of you that I am able to keep releasing my songs. So, please pay what you like for this EP (minimum $2) and keep spreading the word and sharing the love with your friends and family.

Donations greater than $2 are appreciated and accepted with so much gratitude. I thank you from the bottom of my red, red heart.
