Mark Kaschak Hell of an opening track. The phrasing of the words in that chorus; just fantastic. I've also come to realize that Julias will have that effect on a man... Favorite track: Do What I Do.

Thread 05:06
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…

Julia 05:05
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

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?

Every Little Thing (free) 03:49
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

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

Little Room (free) 05:14
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
