We’re on the same flight, crossing the same times. Oh woh…

SHARING STARS UNDER A SINGLE SKY

Well I saw your heart in the wishing well,, Well I saw your heart
ooh only time will tell
Well i saw our lies in the wishing well. well i saw our lies
oo only time will tell

and I’m not counting the feelings you hide
and your not counting the tears that I cried
we made promises deep down inside to be true to be true to be true

Well I saw our words in the wishing well,, Well I saw our words
ooh only time will tell
and I’m not counting as memories dissolve
and your not counting as conflicts resolve
we made promises life would evolve , we’re be true we’re be true
WAIT BE PATIENT TAKE IT SLOW
WAIT BE PATIENT LOVE WILL GROW

Some make choice to write the songs
Some lift their voices to right the wrongs and some sleep
Some decide it’s not their road, while other pass with a heavy load
some laugh, and some weep
NEVER STEERED THE BOAT
NEVER CHOSE THE WAY
‘Like’ if you agree
NEVER MADE THE TIME
ALWAYS STOLE THE DAY
IN SOMEONE ELSES DREAM
some make buckets that they can cross
but nothing doing to replace the loss when they die
Immortality sink or swim
lights are burning lights grow dim in the big sky

Andy – piano, electric guitar,melltron.

pay attention you riding so high
you so bold you think you might fly
no fear of falling no chance you might die
and we’re all going back to the ground

pay attention you pretty young thing
world’s your oyster you princess, you king
hold on tight as your world’s revolving
as we’re all going back to the ground
yeh we’re all going back to the ground

We’re all going back

pay attention you watching the fire
lighting up by the greed and desire
feeding the few as the flames getting higher
now we’re all going back to the ground
yeh we’re all going back to the ground

We’re all going back

you can fight or surrender
it’s gonna take you in the end
you can lie, but you can’t buy your way out
of the splendour of the carriage and the plumage
the ashes and the sewage
and we’re all going back to the ground
the clocks stop, we wind
the dream stops, we find a new truth a new day
a good love, a better way

and if you die…then I die.

Vocals, percussion and glockenspiel -Gitika

Guitars  and Keys -Andy

Birds that sing together stay together

I sing with some I know and some are strangers

Then I light another candle

For the future, past, the now and then And we sing again.

Birds that fly together , stay together

We fill the empty skies in heavy weather

Then we Light another candle

For the friends we lost along the way and we sing again

THE DARKEST DAY THE LONGEST NIGHT TOOK ME 24 MOONS TO FEEL ALRIGHT

BUT I’M GONNA LIGHT ANOTHER CANDLE FOR YOU

THE LONGEST NIGHT THE DARKEST DAY TOOK ME 24 MOONS

TIL I FELT OK TIL I FELT OK WITHOUT YOU ……TIL I FELT OK

Birds that fly together , stay together

We fill the empty skies in heavy weather

Then we Light another candle

For the friends we lost along the way and we rise again

CHORUS

and then the seasons cheer and the boughs of holly

and I find it really hard to be jolly

All I do is remember every year before

And we hand the lights make sense of the dark

I feel a flicker, feel a spark OF HOPE….

CHORUS 

 

 

 

TRACK 11 -JANUARY – written, recorded, played sung mixed produced etc by Gitika Partington in her bedroom in Holloway London.

Everytime I think of you 

I think of all the things that we’ve been through 

The ups, the downs, the knocks 

The open roads the inevitable road blocks. 

Everytime I call your name I remember so much joy so much pain 

We paper the walls then we watch the cracks 

2 steps forward (the 1 step back the 1 step back 

2 steps forward the 1 step back oh ) x2 

Every time we lose our way , I wonder why it seems so hard to stay 

We good we brave we bold 

We fly so high and then we crash into a black hole 

Everytime we start again 

Things are better for a while and then they’re just the same 

We paper the walls then we watch the cracks 2 steps forward the one step back 

CHORUS

TRACK 12 – JANUARY – STOP FOR THE KISS – written by Gitika Partington and Andy McCrorie-Shand, recorded and mixed by Gitika in Holloway London- extra vocals -Andy

STOPS FOR THE KISS 

1.Every time we reach this moment. 

All too soon its time for me to go 

Wish I could I could tell you just how I feel. I lose my nerve and never let you know 

2.Every time you reach the station 

Get on that last train home ..Wish I could stop, you ask you to stay. we kiss goodbye just like we kissed hallo 

EVERYTHING STOPS FOR THE KISS 

EVERYTHING STOPs FOR THE MOMENT 

THEN I LET GO OF YOUR HAND AND WALK AWAY 

FEELS LIKE THIS HEART BEAT IS BROKEN 

I JUST WISH FOR ONCE THAT YOU COULD STAY AND STOP FOR THE KISS 

rpt verse 2 and CHORUS 

stay and …

Bottle this feeling , I cant wait for the day 

When we won’t be stealing those kisses just before you walk away 

someday you will day. 

UNACCOMPANIED CHORUS +CHORUS
