about

Strange Skies is a song i wrote as part of February Album Writing Month in 2012, and it was partially inspired by the human rights situation in Syria which, as i write this, has sadly only got worse since i wrote the song.

For The Rest Of Our Lives is just a nice little song about what happens after the happy ever after. Hope you enjoy it!

Track Name: Strange Skies
The rain had just stopped
We were there on our own
And we didn't know what would come next
The last falling drops
Crashed like bombs to the ground
As we took our first tentative steps

But now we can go home
No-one will stop us and we can have ice cream
And we won't go out
Under those strange skies again

So we're inside again
Put the kettle on then
Take your coat off and we'll have some tea
And we won't go outside
We'll just stay in and hide
I'll be with you and you'll be with me

Because now we can go home
No-one will stop us and we can have ice cream
And we won't go out
Under those strange skies again

Under those strange skies, under those strange skies again
Track Name: For The Rest Of Our Lives
For The Rest Of Our Lives

We've got a lot of potential but where does it go?
You don't have to tell me because i know you know
'Cause everything's perfect, and we'll be so happy
For the rest of our lives
So take out the garbage, i'll turn on the TV
We'll eat shepherd's pie, for the rest of our lives

For the rest of our lives

We've got a lot of indifference to what is out there
We've got ourselves in a nice place, so what do we care?
We could be happy for the rest of our lives to the end
We will be happy, 'til we start it all over again

For the rest of our lives
For the rest of our lives
For the rest of our lives
