about

Full of love for my missus, Rachel Claire Thomas, at the moment. This is just to let her know how and why.

A note on religion: I am not overtly a religious person. I don't attend Church or any other service of worship. I have a Quaker background which is all about finding your own path to holiness. I find that my spiritual side comes across in my songwriting. I often mention "the Lord" or "Jesus" in my songs, and I do so without feeling at all incongruous or fake. It just seems natural for my bluesy style. I find that a lot of my lyrics are about worshipping nature, loving my family, being thankful, or just peacing out in harmony with the world. I hope this doesn't put anyone off my music!

lyrics

Here's Another Thing

You offered me everything
You looked into my eyes
You allowed me the chance to sing
You took me by surprise

You loved me for who I am
A genius maybe, but flawed
You had one hand for the tiller, man
And one for the Lord

You put up with my weaknesses
You didn't stand for my lies
Your loving arms were my buttresses
As we reached up under cathedral skies

And now look where we are
So near and so far
You gotta love who you are...

You didn't follow my lead
You knew what it was all about
Yeah I just wanted to bleed
To scream and shout
What's that all about
You should have kicked me out

You didn't ask me for much
I gave you everything that I had
Until I had nothing left at all
And it drove me mad

And now our love is in bloom
As fresh as it was before
The happiness fills the room
We're not keeping score any more

And here's another thing
I hope we both recognise
You can't be a bird that sings
If you're reliant on a network of spies

And another thing
You've maybe heard it before
I love the ground that you walk upon
Yeah the dirty floor

You offered me everything
You looked into my eyes
You allowed me the chance to sing
You took me by surprise

You loved me for who I am
A genius maybe, but flawed
I wanted to be adored
I wanted to be adored
I wanted to be adored, oh oh

And now our love is in bloom
As fresh as it was before
The happiness fills the room
We're not keeping score any more

And here's another thing
I hope we both recognise
You can't be a bird that sings
If you're reliant on a network of spies

You offered me everything
You looked into my eyes
You allowed me the chance to sing
You took me by surprise

You put up with my weaknesses
You didn't stand for my lies
Your loving arms were my buttresses
As we reached up under cathedral skies

And now look where we are
So near and so far
You gotta love who you are
You gotta love who you are
