This World 03:20
THIS WORLD OFFERS YOU - Lyrics Pete Pascoe© You might think that this world doesn’t offer you much You might live in a narrow void, may lose touch You may be on the edge it may be overhung Yes you may be on the very edge, a nervous one Or you may see, you may see what you want to be This world offers you this world offers you so much You may trip on what you like, go ahead You may slip in spite of that I’ve said You may see, you may see what you want to be This world offers you this world offers you so much

SOUTHERN LAND - Lyrics Pete Pascoe/Paul Dredge © Gum trees and possums in my memory When I was a kid mind wandering free Parents followed the trend, got a divorce Before they went round the bend, pass the tomato sauce Been living in this southern land busy trying to build this man Trying hard to understand what drives us on Numbed and painless in my childhood busy being careful and busy being good Then I threw it away back when I turned 17 Things went astray, where they've always been Long time dreaming in this southern land busy trying to build this man Trying hard to understand what drives you on And this happy bar’s reminding me About travelling in this hippy van Yeh, these happy hours finding me still dreaming in this southern land Heard it called a convicts island, Vast ancient land full of roos and red sand Think what you’ve been back when you were 17 Living in a strange strange town Think what you’ve been

Second Story 04:22
SECOND STORY - Lyrics Pete Pascoe© The piano leads me to the invisible stairs Those gathered round show me to where The second story lives softly awake Answering every question, landing in another dimension Uncluttered space where silence awaits Takes me beyond where thoughts have gone Love lies shrouded in ever lasting memory A child awaits in peace, holds out a hand Others there are waiting for me to understand An ancient story to come clear, I feel a softly spoken sphere Lead me on through the pastel painted picture, now it’s gone There’s a view and the porthole shaped window shares it too. The essence of this tale floats on a tune Water softly cascading falls from the moon And rises in the air lifts us to where Lives another story, it lives here World of love above, within so we can start again…. Lead me on through the pastel painted picture now it’s gone There’s a view from the sacred second story

LONELY DRAGON - Lyrics Pete Pascoe© In this apartment for rock stars with energy and panache Could be the department of last art the recipe some lemon - just a dash Reshuffling the deck, the last hand I don’t know A little sour, a little circumspect should’ve stuck with my piano Ill face this lonely dragon so close I could almost floss its teeth The wheels are still on the wagon passing by the world beneath Shooting on the blind yet again, fool me News of this kind is penned - so sue me I left this city behind and I’m never coming back again Took the first train out of town, no I’ll never feel this weight again Gonna turn around out of this cul-de-sac Of salt mines and humourless lands Gonna learn how when I turn my back On the very mouth that bit my hand

Innocent 04:36
INNOCENT - Lyrics Pete Pascoe© Never slept at all last night I was running with the animals across the stars Lady says you should be in bed Now what do you suppose she meant by that? She seemed to me innocent, innocent as a new born. Honest, loving I wish her peace Never dreamt I’d be showing my heart And I never thought I’d play my hand this way Music is a river drifting by Now when was the last time you watched that? Innocent, innocent as a new born Honest loving, I wish you peace.

Cathedral 03:34
CATHEDRAL - Lyrics Pete Pascoe© I saw the pigeons flying as in my mind’s eye When I was a child of 7 watching them fly by The bluest sky you can imagine was shining all around The warmest sun was warming my feet on the ground My mind is my cathedral I’m standing there again Once more a quiet moment in the middle of the day I can go anywhere, anywhere in my past I can think anything and anything will last My mind is my escape I’m flying away again To pictures created way away from today And you think you know me I say you know what you see I’m often tucked away inside but to can talk to me

IN MY OWN TIME - Lyrics Pete Pascoe© Frame me picture me paint me finish me Trap me catch me post me deliver me From your hands to another land from my mind Trust me speak to me hear me love me Rush me push me use me love me In my own time in my own way in my own time I’ll risk and I’ll burn and I’ll die and I’ll turn I’ll seek and I’ll grow and I’ll live and I’ll learn Like a river to the sea to the sky to the mountain

EVERYONE FALLS - Lyrics Pete Pascoe© Everyone falls resets their sights heaven it calls to set things right We envision messengers deemed to wash our senses Like a tide toward the good, not tied to must and should Everyone falls While you pick yourself up don’t worry cos there’s help inside Turn on the light, rub the bump on your head Be thankful you’re still here and nurse your wounds Everyone falls Everyday’s a constant start again of different ways, how and when And who, don’t worry Like a tide toward the light not tied to must and right. Everyone falls

Photograph 04:53
PHOTOGRAPH - Lyrics P Pascoe© I have a photograph time captured in technology And since that photograph course of events have followed logically A moment frozen from the past Pin point an instant when you recall a real memory Timeline is constant falling together forming destiny All those little bits and pieces form A jigsaw puzzle where you imagine it complete A vivid picture there can be no retreat Perhaps you’d never want it if you knew what lay in store Pain and sorrow you know there must be more... I have certain friends who’ve long lain silent And in the end their thoughts still valid sent Speaking in my memory And it all ties together like a peaceful growing tree In all kinds of weather going on into infinity Seasons always changing.... A jigsaw puzzle where you imagine it complete A vivid picture there can be no retreat Perhaps you’d never want it if you knew what lay in store Pain and sorrow you know there must be more...

Low Tide 04:57
LOW TIDE - _ Lyrics Pete Pascoe© Woke up somewhere things not feeling right A left turn took me right on down to the other side The cloud was hanging low tho the day was dawning bright It was upon me before I could tell Next time it happens ill be sure to let you know right away Guess I never wanted to turn your colours grey It was like a car crash or a crime from another day Trouble brewing, that I could smell This I can tell you I was seeing things from the other side Best I could do was buckle up hang in there for the ride I don’t really know, I think it came from deep inside It was a lonely sad ol tide Well a high tide’s followed by a low tide, any fool knows that But when a leaning ladder is followed by the walk of a lone black cat I’ll keep my eyes on the sun, on the blue of day as a matter of fact I can tell you cos it’s true. It was upon me before I could tell Trouble burning, that I could smell Now I need someone to hold I turned this black rock into gold.

St Kilda 04:48
ST KILDA - Lyrics Pete Pascoe© The umbrella keeps me dry a few beers pass the time The bar outside is quiet after all its 11pm on a rainy night The lady with the shiny gear tries it out, the water she tests My path is clear, I’m out of here, I’ll catch the tram on home Got time to fill may as well kill it in a bar somewhere I’m outside here You’re fast asleep in our cosy nest not so far away watching A rainy sky covers a full moon over St Kilda A weary sigh covers a four leaf clover: St Kilda
