Cool Forest 02:43
Mushrooms like trumpets call from the forest Look at us they say, we are tall and silent Grey and yellow and fine and curled We live in our very own world amongst the pine needle beds In the cool, damp forest Leaves of red and gold and yellow Filters the sunlight and makes me feel mellow To think that all of those leaves are dying The carpet grows on the forest floor And the smell envelops me like a comfort blanket The ferns lie flat and brown and dry Once they were tall so very high and green But now it looks as if they’ve been laid upon A sweet comfortable bed to be slept upon By a very pretty brown deer Black mud it sucks at my boots as I walk the path Come and see the underneath it says Come and feel the earth with me And every step I take leaves a trail I am an immortal in the cool damp forest
2.
Tall fir trees stand erect, like pine scented soldiers Guarding the forest Black pools of silence, infiltrated by slivers of sunlight Cutting through this sacred space Chorus In the forests, in the forests, in the forests of Bourne And what of the deer that congregate here They’ve all disappeared in a magic haze One minute here, next minute gone But their imprint remains in their resting-place May blossom strewn across our path Like fairies throwing natures confetti to lighten our way We who know many things understand nothing We stand on these delicate petals And they crush underfoot So tread carefully and do not disturb The grace and the beauty that infuses every moment Respect their majesty and leave them as you found them and they will allow you to remember them
3.
Walking hand in hand in the woods, such a healing thing to do I saw your love in every branch, in every acorn And in the breeze that blew I felt the sun, I breathed its warmth while the birds they sang I carried on walking; the oak embraced my every step Chorus But I saw you most, where you made your mark Was when I saw the silver in the bark The ferns they brushed me as I passed, giving me a holy breath I shared my love with the trees and they in turn, nurtured me But I saw you most, where I made my mark Was when I saw the silver in the bark The scent of pine gave my comfort; the bird’s songs gave me peace The caressing wind held me close so that I could breathe with ease I saw your love all around me, in every lead, in every stone In every thought that passed my by, the secret of this love I’d know

Aonach Mòr 03:10
The Spirit of the mountain calls to me I hear her voice on the April breeze I hear her sing her song of love Here on the mountain of Aonach Mor Over the mountain of Aonach Mor I see her trees in shades of green Red and gold and purple beams I smell the earth and I hear her voice The mountain of Aonach Mor I hold my hands in her mountain stream, It’s cold and forgiving and its cleanses me I hear the water bring life Through the mountains of Aonach Mor I feel heaven beneath my feet I breathe the air and it cherishes me I thank God I’m here and I bless the sky Here on the mountain of Aonach Mor

Spirit of the flowers I call to you Verse 1 Glorious nature, green of the trees Opens my heart opens my soul Glorious nature, green of the trees Opens my heart opens my soul Verse 2 Love is all around me I bathe in its beauty I surround myself with love I thank Heaven above for sharing this moment with me
6.
Standing in my singing shoes, living my life and looking for clues Gotta avoid those which way blues And follow that star Children playing on the beach, cheeks as rosy as a peach Though the sun seems out of reach I’ve got to follow that star Chorus There are lessons to be learned to find out who we truly are There to help us find our way And follow that star Middle 8 Running on my path up to the light Guided in my heart to what feels right I’m so alive right now gives me a fright Hope it will turn out alright Guiding light, shining star always show me here you are In the dark when I can’t see, shine a light on me
7.
Where do I go, where do I begin Do I go outside or do I go within What should I say, where should I start Should I talk out loud and speak from my heart Chorus Oh my heart brings me love, I hear angels breathe Should I take this step, embrace the unknown Should I take a chance on this journey home Should I make this choice and change everything Open my heart to love and hear my soul sing I am here right now – here I am No, I won’t hold back from all that I am

about

I wrote the songs for this EP in and about the beautiful mountains in Scotland, the glorious woods of Lincolnshire, the amazing beaches of the North Norfolk coast and the myriad of flowers in my very own garden. It reflects my thoughts about the beauty that is all there all around me and I feel so blessed that my authentic self has been allowed to shine out through the songs. I have been absolutely thrilled and privileged to be working with my son for the first time in the making of this EP
