I originally began putting my poetry to music a number of years ago when I was in my first band “Gardenia”.  Although, our band never made it any further than the local park, I then moved to Austria where my dreams of writing lyrics became a reality and “the hills were alive…”  I was recognised for my skills and if you’re looking for someone to write lyrics to your music, get in touch.

I LOVED YOU

I never thought I’d still love you
The waves are crashing and the water’s oh, so blue
I never thought I’d still love you
You were my hero, what am I now without you?
I loved you, I loved you
How I loved you, I loved you.

Long ago
In times of old
Our moments were so precious
My heart was filled with gold
… with gold

I never thought I’d still love you
The waves are crashing and the water’s oh, so blue
I never thought I’d still love you
You were my hero, what am I now without you?

Help me to discover
My life now that you’re gone
And then I may believe
I’m carrying your son

(Sung in an echo)
And my heart…
…drags without you near
Your soul is by my side
I live life without any fear

Standing here
As I look out to the sea
Alone on this rock
Emblazoned by the fire of love I see

I never thought I’d still love you
The waves are crashing and the water’s oh, so blue
I never thought I’d still love you
You were my hero, what am I now without you?

DIG YOURSELF

When you think it’s all over
And the time has flown by
Don’t be deceived by others
Or an adolescent cry

For help when you’re pulled
In a direction unknown
Or pushed in a corner
Or under a stone

Dig down deep
Dig into your soul
Find out what’s within
And you’ll reach your every goal

Look from the inside
When you’re happy not sad
Don’t be drawn in by others
Be yourself and be glad

We’re here in this lifetime
With this chance to be free
Look around, up and down
Look through things and see

Life’s not what you think
There’s a depth to be seen
We’re alone, but together
Like the ripples of a stream

So dig your own feeling
And learn from them all
Dig the person you are
And have yourself a ball

Dig down deep
Dig into your soul
Find out what’s within
And you’ll reach your every goal
