This is a live version of my song done with wonderful musicians in the Berklee studios.


The water living in the rain
The water living in my brain
Will carry memories of every single day
Comprising everything that grows and fades away

I've been a failure to give in
I've been a failure to begin
A single moment that was destined to have been
Composing blessings for an audience of sin
I've seen it happen looking outside from within

I breathe in, I breathe in
Now here, Now here
Here now

Lying pooleside
Hanging tree-tied
I get lost at sea
Always moving
Do my choosing
Come and dance with me

The poison running through my veins
The teachings of an older age
Will leave me questioning the reason I was made
I'll be aware and let the stars decide my fate
I've got an aching with eternity to blame

Hear the waves
Feel the waves
Pull your dreams from mine
