Some people just have hearts of pure gold and that shines right though to their souls. I'm lucky enough to have the most golden of them all by my side. ******LYRICS***** Golden Soul GOLDEN SOUL VS1 Golden soul where do you usually roam with your hair undone your skin in the sun*** You’re a soldier soul, steady as they go with your headlights on looking for the sun***** CHORUS Woah golden soul please can I be close to you with you next to me*** Golder soul please can I stay by your side for all my days*** Golden soul please let me be, close to you with you next to me *** golden soul you’re like the sun shining down on everyone*** VS 2 With dirt on your cheek your grinning down at me and I’m breathing in this feeling*** Some people say that’s no way to play but they don’t know they haven’t walked that way*** CHORUS Woah golden soul please can I be close to you with you next to me*** Golder soul please can I stay by your side for all my days*** Golden soul please let me be, close to you with you next to me *** golden soul you’re like the sun shining down on everyone*** BRIDGE Purer than the clearest forest air *** More precious than the gold and jewels I wear*** Heart is bigger than the stary skies*** Soul is golden and its deep and wide*** CHORUS Woah golden soul please can I be close to you with you next to me*** Golder soul please can I stay by your side for all my days*** Golden soul please let me be, close to you with you next to me *** golden soul you’re like the sun shining down on everyone***

I found my person that feels just like home. Home is in places and moments and especially people and its the most beautiful thing to find if you're a homebody. ******LYRICS***** HOME When you feel like home in the morning I will miss you** When you feel like home in the morning I’ll be gone** Standing on the earth beside you** Baby you feel like home in the morning I’ll be with you** So I breath deep** I soak you in** Feeling your skin** Let this begin** When you feel so close its like we’re more than touching** When we feel like clothes only get in the way** Every cell in me is electric** And I already know what you’re about to say** So I breath deep** I soak you in** Feeling your skin** Let this begin** BRIDGE Baby you’re a part of me** I think thats how its meant to be** You’re making the heart in me ** Beat so quickly** Baby you’re a part of me** Thats how its meant to be** You’re making the heart in me ** Beat so quickly** CHORUS So I breath deep*** I soak you in*** Feeling your skin*** Its perfection*** Behind your eyes*** I see the skies*** That symphony *** Of you and me*** I’m finally free*** To be all of me*** To be held close*** Or be alone*** You’re far away now*** But you’re in my heart*** And when I close my eyes*** We are not apart*** So I breath deep*** I soak you in*** Feeling your skin*** Its perfection*** **With you I’m home***

Another one of my older songs about love and hope and confusion and how good it feels to be human. I this is the only other song I wrote in New Zealand that has made it to the light of day. Its the song I play around campfires and It might even be the song that landed me in the studio in the first place. Its playful. Its happy. Its my heart in the sunshine. *****LYRICS***** “DREAMER” Can you tell me please, where'd all the beautiful things go, the beautiful things****** are the under your knees? Please don’t hide them from me so oh don’t hide them so**** Can you tell me please don’t be a tease I need the seas to lull me to sleep***** To a certain degree the worlds gone to sleep ad it needs us to wake them Give them a tweak, wake them up, wake them up, wake them up********** If you come back to me, I wll let my sun shine I’ll let the sun shine** If you come back to me I will let you keep my sea if you lull me off to sleep together we will sleep****** When we wake up in the morning we wont wake up yawning and we’ll wake the world up with us with the sunshine in the morning, **** If you come back to me together we’ll be free I’ll be the wind under your wings and you’ll bring me beauty, *** we’ll be the moon and we’ll be the sunset and stumbling won’t hurt so much with a shoulder like yours to catch me when I fall*** I’ll lift you up cuz you’re my warrior I’ll lift you up cuz you’re my warrior*** Hey I miss you when your gone *** So please don’t make it too long don’t make it to long *** And I also miss the sea ** So bring the beauty back bring the beauty back to me***

I have always found it fascinating how we each have such diverse worlds within us. On the surface we seem to be so similar until you start to unpack all the knowledge, experiences, thoughts, opinions, beliefs, desires, and values. We are vast different and we are the same. ********Lyrics******** “Same Same" **Its inside me beating like a drum** **I look into you but you’re a violin** **We walk in step the dance is ours** **But your minds on a screen and mines gone sour** ***We are all the same,*** ***We’ve all got skin and bones*** **A word a smile a laugh a nod** **Giving you hope that you’re understood** **A moment of sun while the stars align** **You see me and know and your watching me shine** ***And you said we are all the same *** ***we’ve all got skin and bones*** *******Words are beautiful things they say to me and to you as we walk away My ears were closed however yours were free he's whispered to your heart through your memories ******* *****Singin' Woah Woah Woah ***** ** In a parallel world that ain't so strait** **We’re face to face yet hours away** **I’m talking about the things I know** **To a white paper face that lost its glow** ***He told me we are all the same*** ***We’ve all got skin and bones*** ***Oh yeah but we are not the same*** ***Our stories hold their own***

I'm a people person. And a hopeless romantic. I just love to be close. This song is the lullaby version of me. *******LYRICS******* “HEY DEAR” hey dear I want to say dear****** I’d like to stay here Would you mind******** So dear want you to know dear******* To have no fear I’m by your side******** Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo******** I want to be there through your darkest hour and bring some sunshine through the clouds******* Share with you your deapest joy, think of all the places we will ****** go dear, who really knows where I’ll go everywhere ****** with you but you know that already don’t you?****** Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo******* Hey dear, I just wanted to say dear***** I’d like to stay here right by your side***** I want to be there through your darkest hour and bring some sunshine through the clouds****** Share with you your deapest joy, think of all the places we will ****** go dear, who really knows where I’ll go everywhere ****** with you but you know that already don’t you****** Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo*******

This is the first song I completed back when I was in high school in New Zealand. I remember the weather was miserable but I was not as you can tell.. There was some ancient recording equipment in the music department and I remember sitting in there for hours recording all the little parts I made for it. This is to that recording. It is however a slightly more refined version recorded with slightly more effective equipment :) enjoy ******LYRICS****** “THE OPTIMIST” Smiling today I got sunshine inside of my soul no cares to drage me down*** Daydreams fill my head to overflowing try shaking me now** CHORUS*** Even with no blue sky I can still splash in puddles in the rain*** My cheesy grin always intact for all the world to see**** I don’t need circumstances to make me happy*** Its just a choice I make and choooooose to keep*** Vs 2*** I stub my toe I miss the bus every day I lose my papers in the mess*** I may never be on time but I’ll change your attitude with one flash of my smile*** CHORUS*** Even with no blue sky I can still splash in puddles in the rain**** My cheesy grin always intact for all the world to see*** I don’t need circumstances to make me happy*** Its just a choice I make and choooooose to keep*** BRIDGE*** Come with me take a chill pill you’ll be just fine*** We’re all in this together we’re all in this together*** CHORUS** Even with no blue sky I can still splash in puddles in the rain*** My cheesy grin always intact for all the world to see*** I don’t need circumstances to make me happy*** Its just a choice I make and choooooose to keep*** Vs 3*** You’ve got the car you’ve got the house you’ve got the holiday in spain*** All your friends were pretty clothes and say nice things*** But in the empty moments as the rain drops fall*** Is that smile really from inside your soul?*** CHORUS Even with no blue sky I can still splash in puddles in the rain*** My cheesy grin always intact for all the world to see*** I don’t need circumstances to make me happy*** Its just a choice I make and choooooose to keep***
