about

This album is a collection of songs that were recorded over the past year and were finally mixed and mastered while living in Morocco and France. The songs recall ideas about connections, space, love and trying to find truth in our existence. Free As A Bird is an album that speaks about my inspiration with Morocco and how it opened my mind and brought me closer to something i was searching for, for a very long time. I hope you find some peace through the albums messages and that it takes you on a nice little journey. Thanks and Salam allayikum.

Track Name: Free As A Bird
Lost at sea without a map
Feather stuck in your cap
No way out and no way back
Waves are talking as they lap

Your free as, free as a bird
Fly, free as bird
Fly, free as a bird
Fly, free as a bird

Just go and fly around for while
Just go and fly around for while
Just go and fly around for while, just go
Just go and fly around for a while
Just go and fly around for a while
Just go and fly around for while, just go
Just fly, just go, just fly, just go

Waiting patient at the station
Born into a reputation
Bring your child dreams to life
Climbing trees to see who's higher

Your free as, free as a bird
Fly, free as bird
Fly, free as a bird
Fly, free as a bird

Just go and fly around for while
Just go and fly around for while
Just go and fly around for while, just go
Just go and fly around for a while
Just go and fly around for a while
Just go and fly around for while, just go
Just fly, just go, just fly, just go.
Track Name: Astronaut
I held my breath for a second time
You left here so fast from the ground
You're so high now and too high to climb
The space between us grows so
Come down
Come down
Come down
Come down
You're the brightest that I've ever seen before
Watching for truths day and night
The world that you see is like no one else
The space between us grows so
Come down
Come down
Come down
Come down
Track Name: Heart's On The Line
With two feet on the ground
Looking at the stars from where i stand
Now all i know is here and more
Forgotten is the past, now is real i'm sure
My mind dreams, it's running fast
Would caged love hold or really last
All I have is like a flame in the dark
Waiting for a spark
Waiting for a spark

I'll never forget that day
Reunited souls back on their way
From oceans and worlds apart
Roads connecting as we make a start
Caught as the world stood still
A second was a life, i could feel no ill
Give it air, sun and time for now
Just go and don't ask how
Just go and don't ask how

My heart's on the line
My heart's on the line
My heart's on the line
My heart's on the line

Someone's never looked so deep before
To see what my soul was searching for
I was hoping that is spoke to you
Even without words it was free and true
My mind dreams, it's racing fast
Trying to find a place i can be at last
All i have is a love to give
But it's killing me to live
But it's killing me to live

My heart's on the line
My heart's on the line
My heart's on the line
My heart's on the line
Track Name: Ideas For Love
I'll wait for you to come around
At the evening bell the call is sound its time to get out
They say its over now but its not for sure
When the guns are down and hope is high, i feel you closer
They say its over now but they're back for more
I'll wait for you to come around
If you want to stop this game of lives
Then use your ideas for love
If you want to stop this game of lies
Then use your ideas for love
Track Name: Stars
Life comes around
Just once for you and I
Facing the sky
You lay by my side
We're holding on the stars to keep this off the ground
We're holding on the stars to keep this off the ground
Time's running out
For the love could subside
Patience and light
The world is in your eyes
We're holding on the stars to keep this off the ground
We're holding on the stars to keep this off the ground
Track Name: Les Silhouettes
Les Silhouettes by Oscar Wilde

The sea is flecked with bars of grey,
The dull dead wind is out of tune,
And like a withered leaf the moon
Is blown across the stormy bay.

Etched clear upon the pallid sand
Lies the black boat: a sailor boy
Clambers aboard in careless joy
With laughing face and gleaming hand.

And overhead the curlews cry,
Where through the dusky upland grass
The young brown-throated reapers pass,
Like silhouettes against the sky.
Track Name: All You Want
All you want is love, all you want is now.
Track Name: Eyes Closed
Even with my eyes closed
I can hear a voice
Calling from an angel
Telling us to try
Even with my eyes closed
Even with my eyes closed

Even with my eyes closed
I can feel true love
Running through my veins
Keeping us alive
Even with my eyes closed
Even with my eyes closed

Even with my eyes closed
I can smell new life
Flowering in the springtime
Moon is coming over
Even with my eyes closed
Even with my eyes closed

Even with my eyes closed
I can taste the rain
Clouds are coming over
Wash away the pain
Even with my eyes closed
Even with my eyes closed

Even with my eyes closed
I can see a light
Shining in my mind
Ocean by our sides
Even with my eyes closed
Even with my eyes closed

Even with my eyes closed
I can hear a voice
Calling from an angel
Telling us to try
Even with my eyes closed
Even with my eyes closed
Even with my eyes closed
