about

This EP has been a labour of love for the past year. It's a collaboration with Hayden Baker from Acoustic Intent. The songs are more than just love songs, but have a message that runs much deeper.

Track Name: Coming Home
Take another step forward ‘cause it’s a long, long road / It’s been a long time coming baby but now I’m coming home / Pack across my shoulders, my burden and my load / You walked this way already one time now I’ll follow you back home / Run so many miles in this direction / Far from the life I’ve come to know / But I’m sold on this conclusion / Coming back to you is like coming home / Another year, another minute, another passing day / Each moment disappeared so quickly spent another way / Just one look and then I linger, to discontent I’m prone / But now with eyes on things that matter, yeah I’m coming home / Run so many miles in this direction / Far from the life I’ve come to know / But I’m sold on this conclusion / Coming back to you is like coming home / And in the wind I hear you calling / In the rain I taste each tear you cry for me / Run so many miles in this direction / Far from the life I’ve come to know / But I’m sold on this conclusion / Coming back to you is like coming home
Track Name: I Love You Still
There’s a glow, a glow that you get when you smile / There’s a light, a light that burns brighter than fire / There’s a truth, a truth that you know deep inside / There’s a love, a love that you just cannot hide / There’s a day that goes by and a night that you cry
And your tears fall down, fall down on the ground…and you know / I love you still, and I always will…I love you still / There’s a seed, a seed that’s beginning to grow / There’s a bond, a bond that won’t break on its own / There’s a way, a way that you walk and it winds / There’s a peace, a peace that you know you can’t find / There’s a line that you cross and a season of loss / And you feel the burn, take the time to learn / There’s a day that goes by and a night that you cry / And your tears fall down, fall down on the ground…and you know / I love you still, and I always will…I love you still / And Hea….ven knows where you’re coming from, if you’d just hang on / And Hea…ven knows where you’re going to, you can make it through, just me and you / I love you still, and I always will…I love you still
Track Name: One Way
Baby want to fight a war today, baby want to stay at home and play / One way, one way / Baby want to talk it over or baby want to run away / One way, one way / One way up to forever, one way down to the grave / One way, one way / One way for the children, one way for the slaves / One way, one way / Baby gonna listen to what they say or baby gonna close her eyes and pray / One way, one way / Baby come a little bit closer or do you take a step away / One way, one way / We can talk and talk forever or do what we know is real / One way, one way / We can cry the tears of never, hurt till we just can’t feel / One way, one way / One way up and one way down / All you gotta do is turn around……one way / One way forward, one way back / It’s a long and narrow track……one way
Track Name: My Love Goes On
Day turns to night, night into morning…brings another day / All of me here, all of me waiting…for what you’ll say / Then straight from your lips, I hear you explain…why you’re gonna walk away / From all of this, from you and me…oooh…hear what I say / My love goes on…yeah / My love goes on and on / Love turns to fear, fear into shame…is it me you blame / One step over the line, not making the time…and you’ll never be the same / All the fond memories they echo around me…don’t know why you’d throw it all away / But you know I’ll be waiting…right here…listen / My love goes on…yeah / My love goes on and on / One look, one word, that’s all then I’m yours / Always, I’m here now and I won’t close the door / Just turn your head and open up your eyes / Hear me, feel me, love me my beautiful
Track Name: She's My Girl
I remember the first time I walked in the room and I saw you lying there / Your hair was swept back behind your ears and your eyes like diamonds in the night / I took another look at you and realised that I had to have you girl / There could be no-one else

I remember the way you giggled behind your hand…you were talking about me / And I remember the first text you sent and how we flirted all day long / It blew me away to think that you liked me…like a dream that isn’t real / But it was true

I remember the first time our lips met, so tender and sweet I opened my eyes / Not a moment was wasted…I saw you as much as I could / You were this incredible girl and I couldn’t help thinking to myself / Woah she’s mine, woah she’s mine

She’s my girl, she’s my girl
I’ll never find another like her
She’s my girl, she’s my girl
She’s my girl, she’s my girl
And I’ll love her for a thousand years
Woah she’s mine, woah she’s mine

I remember when I got down on my knee and asked you to be my wife / You got so excited and giggled and smiled, you forgot to say yes for a while / I remember when you slipped the ring on my finger and I said “I do”…and I thought / Woah she’s mine, woah she’s mine

She’s my girl, she’s my girl

I remember the first time our baby cried / And her gorgeous little hand in mine / She looked like you and I realised / I loved you even more, I loved you even more

She’s my girl, she’s my girl
