about

Various EP's have taken my attention over the years.
'Underneath' was originally entitled 'I give thanks' but we changed it with the re-write.

As the production process progressed, it became clear that we had a wealth of ideas and mixes, and it seemed foolish not to make them available (or at least the ones that we liked the most).

So, as is our style and custom, you get the great understated 'b' side, and then two remixes of the original with this release.

Track Name: Underneath a Rising Sun
Underneath a Rising Sun

Stillness is around me as I write this simple song
The sky is blue and peaceful, the melody is strong
Sun shines a warmth upon me and I sense sea salt in the air
And I await your presence and a moment we will share

We sit amongst the sand dunes, we break the bread and wine
The stars grow in the heavens and the moon begins to shine
Beauty is erupting, exploding on my soul
And I hold you close by me, I've never been so whole

I give thanks to my Maker, for I know you are 'The One'
You filled a need within me and we expect a son
I write these words to celebrate the life that we've begun
So I give thanks for you darling, Underneath a Rising Sun
Track Name: A Playground Scandal
A Playground Scandal

Sitting here, alone, but with my children
Trying to write a love song,
Nothing too sticky, nothing too sweet
Just a simple tune, that moves along

And as I give up, I find I can't stop
And when I'm all in, that's when I'm on top
And when I'm down, I know I'll be OK
And when I'm happy, well, that's when you walk in and say

I love you, but I think that this is over
I need you, but I find you so hard to handle
I want you, but you juts don't seem to be able
To avoid all the gossip, and the playground scandal!

And when I lie down, I know I've got to get up
When I close my eyes, I'm even more awake
When I'm asleep, that's when I'm truly alive
And when I stop and stand still, that's when I start to shake
