Track Name: Thread
My closest friends are farthest away
In Stockholm, Vienna, in Italy and Spain
I’ve got one that’s laying roots in Australia
If I had a little money, I’d be right there after you
We don’t speak as often as we should
We promise and we cross our hearts but hearts are no good
When you’re tired and forgetful, distracted and removed
When the time difference is killing you and you’re not in the mood
Oh you’re not in the…


Help me find the thread x3
Won’t you please, help me find it friend


I’ve got friends of course that have stayed at home
But they might as well be living on the moon for all I know
We try to meet for coffee, but no-one ever shows
They have got children to feed and gardens to grow
One by one we quietly slip right out of sight
To oversee and execute the movements of our lives
Deep into our shells we joyfully retreat
Clutching our monastic souls we drift off from the fleet
We drift off from the…


Help me find the thread x3
Won’t you please, help me find it friend


Some friends will slip right off the edge of the world
Never to be heard from, never to return
But real friends are joined by a very special thread
It has been spinning from the start and it will spin right to the end
These threads are made from memories, these threads are made from love
And all the little secrets that no-one else gets told
These threads are made from laughter, and the feeling that we’re home
We’ll always be connected, no matter where we roam
No matter how we…
No matter…
Track Name: Julia
Many miles from land and miles from my lover
I find myself thinking about honour
Thinking that maybe the rules are different here
On the Santa Isabel with Julia


I am wearing her coat and she is wearing mine
I have stolen her cigarette and I’ve lost track of the time
Over our heads the stars begin to shine
For the Santa Isabel and Julia


She tells me she’s studying medicine, oh, but I just study her face
My eyes follow her hand as it slips across her waist
I understand how it’s easy to stray
On the Santa Isabel with Julia


For I am tempted and curious and drunk upon her glow
I wonder if there is anywhere quiet where we might go
What harm could come from one little kiss
On the Santa Isabel with Julia
On the Santa Isabel with Julia


Somewhere in a mind that’s swimming with whiskey
There flashes an image of somebody dear to me
Her face, once clear, is fading from me
What is happening to my memory?


On the Santa Isabel with Julia
On the Santa Isabel with Julia


It is too late now, she has fallen to sleep
I carefully cover her, from her shoulders to her feet
I kiss her once and I whisper pleasant dreams
And I turn out the light


On the Santa Isabel and Julia
Track Name: Abstract Man
You're all, you're all, pistols at dawn
if you're gonna be pistols at all
and I've never been much of a fighter
but for you I would give my all

I do right, I do right by you when I can
can you love an abstract man
and darling is that enough for you
or do you need more than I am?

You're all, you're all, well planned attack
you know the maps now by heart
I never did learn them that well
I've always followed your trail

I do right, I do right by you when I can
can you love an abstract man
and darling is that enough for you
or do you need more than I am?

You're all you're all pistols at dawn
have you got it in you to draw?
Track Name: Every Little Thing
Every little thing, you think that you need
Every little thing, you think that you need
Every little thing that’s just feeding your greed
Oh, I bet that you’d be fine without it


Every little thing that you’ve gotta have
Every little thing that you’ve gotta have
That you’ve got to reach for and you’ve got to grab
Oh, I bet that you’d be fine without it


So tear your eyes away, oh tear your eyes away


Every little thing that sparkles and shines
Every little thing that sparkles and shines
It’s driving you sweetly out of your mind
But I bet that you’d be fine without it


So tear your eyes away, oh tear your eyes away


Every little thing that you’re lusting for
Every little thing that you’re lusting for
How did you ever get along before
Oh, I bet that you were fine without it


So tear your eyes away, oh tear your eyes away


Before you’re tripping over junk that’s lying scattered on your floor
The dusty and discarded toys that don’t shine any more
Every one you had to have, every one you swore
Would satisfy your greedy heart for now and evermore


Every little thing that catches your eye
Every little thing that catches your eye
Gets under your skin and it won’t be denied
Oh, I bet that you’d be fine without it


Oh, I bet that you’d be fine without it
Track Name: Perfumed Letter / Something
Every day’s a perfumed letter from a skilled hand
A supple neck longing to be kissed
Every day’s awash with wishes waiting to be wished
But a pounding heart is stronger than a fist
Every day is wide open, forgiving and a-hoping
For hatching plans or building dams or peaceful pipe smoking


But I have let too much time slip through my hands
I have spent too much time watching the time go by


Every day’s an olive branch, another chance
For anyone to stake a claim or for a criminal to clear their name
Every day is an enchantress, a beautiful chanteuse
She’ll hypnotise with fire in eyes and she’ll sing for you in truth and lies


But I have let too much time slip through my hands
I have spent too much time watching the time go by


Every day’s a crystal clear pool, dive right in we’re all fools
But I just stand here, staring at my shaking image on the ripples yeah
Track Name: Little Room
High in a mountain village, their clouded romance began
He saw his future right there in her eyes, but to her he was just a man
She fell in love with the rivers, they grew right out of the mountains
She knew his love couldn’t carry her, as far as the rivers would


She’d so little room for love, so little room
In her wandering heart, there was little room for love


Nights she would sit by the river bed, and give her bare feet to the flow
And sing from the bottom of her voice, “Take me I’m ready to go”
He was dreaming of children, but she was dreaming of strangers
With curious names and marvellous brains, and no wish to build her a home


She’d so little room for love, so little room
In her wandering heart, there was little room for love


She filled her suitcase quietly, in the small hours of the night
And words that should have been spoken, she settled down to write
She said, “Darling, my heart’s an explorer, but it withers in this place.
I must go now to see the world. If you love me, don’t give chase.


I’ve so little room for love, so little room
In my wandering heart, there is little room for love


I cannot carry you, I cannot carry you
In my wandering heart, in my peregrine heart
In my wandering heart, I can never carry you.”


The sun rose early next morning
She was already miles, she was already miles away
