1. ‘Telephone’

I look at my phone
like every other clone
it’s like there’s no dial tone
to pick up and have a moan
or a natter to another clone

Eyes down we’re quite prone
to have our minds blown
to whatever is thrown across our screen

Why not postpone your date with the phone
before we lie down next to our gravestone
take off your headphones and let’s talk
until we tickle our funny bones
laughing out loud let’s enjoy this time alone

Let me chaperone your mind
away from our own worlds
before I kiss the skin upon your cheekbone
as I reach the dropzone my heart falls in love

I don’t need no growth hormone
as the love I have for you can’t grow much more
or do I need a megaphone to tell you loud and clear?

Something that is set in stone
& never to be washed away in the tidal zone
is love that has become something more than the dog and bone
all by putting our phone down
and not being another clone.


2. ‘I need to walk off this love I have for you’

I need to walk off this love I have for you
as I can’t (fucking) stop thinking of you

Get your heart out of my mind
because I’ve fallen
& I’m not stalling my love no more
I wanna be all in for life
with my eye by yours

Whether I walk, run or try to hide
I can’t stop thinking of you
beside myself I feel the same as my heart
as my heart wants everything
like for like and hand in hand

I need to walk off this love I have for you
but the further I walk the stronger the love is
with every step making the heart beat stronger
faster for you like something I have never known

At the end of the day when I stop
I realise I cannot get your heart out of my head

It’s obvious to why I can’t
I’m not in denial but the truth be told
it’s because I love you
always have and always will

Therefore you will always be in my head
the best thought that one could ever have.


3. ‘Side by side’

Side by side they loved each other
watching the waves crash upon the shore
a chill in the wind helps them be closer

They need not speak as they knew how each felt
like the sea next to the shore
they just belonged together

With her head tilted and resting upon his shoulder
a gentle hand across her back calmed the heart
as they couldn’t bear being apart from one another

Side by side they loved each other
with this moment memories are created
& they shall cherish them for evermore
as the sea laps the shore over and over again

Daylight was fading with the clouds gathering above
the chill had now turned to shivers

One final glance into each other’s eyes
one more kiss by the sea shore
side by side
they left together forevermore.


4. ‘Her eyes look down’

Her eyes look down
as I walk around
the corner
with my eyes
glimpsing at hers

Words become lost
yet mutters a little something

With the look in her eyes
it’s like she’s wanting
to shout something out
more than it would seem

Just shy?
I wouldn’t believe
when confidence
is her through and through

Softly spoken her few words
calming a soul and a heart
she walks off once more
with more words wanting to be said
it just doesn’t seem like the time
to speak of them.


5. ‘That moment you see someone’

That moment
you see someone

That one moment
your world feels complete

It is how I feel
when I see you

Not once in awhile
but every
single
time

That moment
the heart dances
even if the lymbs lack rhythm
it is for that moment
a time when the heart feels complete

That moment you see someone
defines the way you are
what you feel within your heart & mind

That moment
you see someone

That moment
it is you
that makes me feel complete
every
single
time.


6. ‘It was you on the hill’

It was you on the hill
from a distance I could tell
but I wouldn’t know how
to walk up to you
& speak as if I were your friend
(like I was so long ago)

Year by year I must be a distant memory
whereas I feel as if I
was just talking to you yesterday
(sometimes I think I actually did at times)

I knew it was you but I looked back
just to make sure that you were you
not a figure in my imagination

I nearly walked back towards the summit
so I could get a closer view
but my head told me ‘what’s the point?’
(more will be asked and a welcome hello it may not be)

All I can take from that moment
is that I saw you once more
distant like the memories
however the heart still skipped a beat or two
because I knew it was you
(& still in love with you).


7. ‘Beauty, Distance, Strength’

No other beauty
will make my heart stronger
yet no words
will tell how much you mean

A distance between hearts
yet they are strong
when they face each other
no matter where they are

The strength of love
always tougher
when not together
yet greater side by side.


8. ‘You stood, You saw’

To the left of the photograph
you stood, you saw
the same view as I did

However the view that was
will never be of you and I
in the same picture frame

But I’ll always know
where you were stood
in relation to the view

As close as the two hearts were
they could never be
further away from one another.


9. ‘It was perfect’

It was perfect
a moment the heart craved for
everything had been for that moment
so much belief filled the heart
a world of thoughts had already been dreamt

& in a glimpse it was all gone
thoughts became silent
the heart drained of everything that it believed
what once was filled with hope and dreams
was now a vast empty space
which for worse seemed like there was no boundary

It was perfect, well nearly everything
everything except for me and my mind
craving the perfection once more is at the moment
a little sore as the heart has dipped
& the head is exhausted from so much thought

How can something that the heart wanted
for so long just be thrown away
like it could be replaced by something else
so easily and without any pain
slowly becoming insane
I became…something useless

It was perfect
& I had my chance
my chance
I doubt I will
never get again.


10. ‘My mind took a step back’

My mind took a step back
it watched as the world went by
as it couldn’t be part of the fast pace
that was continually set by the world

The mind resigned itself to the back step
where it could see everything
that it truly wanted but could do little about
or indeed that is what it thought

Where the mind could help it would and will
but this pace is nothing for the mind
where others are better and indeed beyond the pace set

My mind took a step back
stumbling across everything in its path
which indeed did not help the situation

However all I could do was get back to my feet
telling myself not to be defeated
& the step back was for my eyes to see
the new path that when ready
I will go forward
ready for the pace of the world.


11. ‘Never far’

I miss you
so
much so
i
still love
you
never forgotten
always
never far from my
thoughts
i wonder
why
i think of
you
when I
stand
over hills
watching
out for you
never
ever knowing
if
we’ll meet
again.


12. ‘Keep walking’

The world isn’t flat as first thought
It is round so we won’t fall off the edge
So we can come back around
To where we started

No matter how the world treats you
keep walking
just keep walking

By standing strong
the chance will come back around

So if the sound wasn’t profound the first time
keep walking, gathering the experience
every feeling to make the next time
a bigger fight to win
with more to show and more to believe

Keep walking to get where you want to be
through valleys, cities to the sea
as without that walk
I’d be lost.


13. ‘We are free as the air we breathe’

Walking through fields
we are free as the air we breathe
no cloud is too far
no dream is too wild

We walk through fields
with our hearts
leading the way

If you need my hand
it is alway by my side for you
for whenever you need it

We are free as the air we breathe
for that time we walk together
across fields to high hills

Nothing is too far or too much
when I am with you.


14. ‘Unanswered’

There’s nothing that can be done
because I walked away
with many questions
left unanswered.
