about

This is a journey album from beginning to end. Life, love, and the human condition reflected through the eyes of a poet.It spans the course of many years of gathering songs which I deemed transformative and magical, thus i coined the term...Transformagical. Tender and powerful emotions through words and instrumentals it is primarily keyboard, orchestral based music but not exculsively as in the songs "If you were mine' and "1000 ways" which shift the mood with dreamy guitars and gutsy lyrics. The songs are linked separately so you can choose your faves but I recommend the whole album for a total experience. Thanks for your support. Much Love, Light & harmony!

Track Name: The Tempest
instrumental
Track Name: TEARS IN RAIN
TEARS IN RAIN


They say that you’re insane
when the light is in your eyes
til you can’t stand the pain
so you wear a disguise

Now I don’t know your name
It doesn’t matter anymore
we’re all just the same
when we walk through the door

tears in rain
tears in rain
just tears in rain
tears in rain

They say you’re not the same
and they always ask you why
til you can’t stand the pain
so you spread your wings and fly

tears in rain
tears in rain
tears in rain
tears in rain

Track Name: Peles Blue
PELES BLUE
( she lays it down)

In the pale moonlight she gets it right
she lays it down
Fire & stone,she makes her home
she lays it down

Ribbons of red, her long black dreads
she lays it down
Smoke & ash her spell is cast
she lays it down

There’s stars around her but she’s all alone
in an endless sea kissed with foam
O she lays it down

Tears of glass for lovers past
she lays it down
Shes dreaming of a love of love
she lays it down

Stars around her but she’s all alone
in an endless sea kissed with foam
O she lays it down

Sad but true
Peles blue
Track Name: Home
HOME

The road kept on going
so we kept on rowing
hoping inside ,something would change
A full moon was glowing
a desert wind blowing
but we kept on riding into the rain

Singing, Love, carry us home
Love carry us home

All of your crying
and all of this dying
I’ve never seen nothing like it before
While the innocent suffer
and beg for their supper
billions are wasted on weapons of war

Love, carry us home
Love, carry us home

Time passes swiftly
and life gets so tricky
a dance through the stars and we’re out of the door
But your eyes shine like diamonds
out of the ashes
I’ve never seen nothing like them before

Singing, Love, Carry us home
Love, carry us home
Track Name: If You Were Mine
IF YOU WERE MINE

You reach for the sky hoping to have & to hold
But the future is something you never expect to unfold
Then the look in his eye is broken & distant & cold

But i'd treat you like Heaven
Love you all of the time
You'd be Queen of Angels
If you were mine

It's a long dusty road between what you are and what you've become
A pocket of sand in your hand for all that you've done
And the siren within you is saying that you'd better run

But i'd treat you like Heaven
Love you all of the time
Be Queen of Angels
Say you are mine
Track Name: 1000 ways
1000 Ways

you are a castaway upon an island
with only a guitar to play
you got no reason but you’re smilin’
the bills at home upon your deask,they lay

1000 ways to waste away
1000 ways to waste away

you are a waitress in a dark café
you studied acting on the side
hoping for that big break someday
meanwhile you love you’ve got to hide

1000ways to waste away
1000 ways to waste away

the tiny catapillar’s turning
he weaves a cocoon in the sky
& in the middle of his yearning
he becomes the butterfly

1000 ways to waste away
too many ways to waste away
Track Name: Buggys Song
BUGGYS SONG

It was your smile wider than the sky
It was your hair upon the wind
I love you but I don’t say why
but I ,want to do it again ,all my life
do it again ,I just want to do it again
Cause you ,took me to dreanland ,took me to magicland
showed me the wonders of your love

You covered me when I was blue
You held my face and then.
Your magic poured all over me and
I want to do it again ,all my life
do it again , I just want to do it again
cause you ,took me to wonderland , took me to magicland
showed me the dreams in your eyes

You are my sun ,my moon and stars
my universe my friend
you’re an angel sent from above and
I want to do it again ,all my life
do it again, I just want to do it again
‘cause you ,took me to wonderlandland ,took me to dreanland
showed me the magic in your heart
Track Name: Holy Wars
HOLY WARS

How long must we endure
the plunder & the pain
before we live in peace,
before the killing rain ?

No treasure your can find
can claim this heart of mine
or the way I feel
with your master or your mind

or your holy wars ,
your holy wars.

You justify your crimes
with books & beads & prayers.
Destroy this sacred earth
isn’t written anywhere.

Is the message getting through,
will it reach your heart somehow ?
I’m just the same as you
lets put an end right now

to holy wars,
to holy wars.

I don’t think that god would say
kill all who don’t believe
blow all creation up
and still love you & me.

You say it is a word
it’s meaning you cant’ see.
Love is all you need
and breath is always free

from holy wars,
from your holy wars.
Track Name: All Around Me
ALL AROUND ME

Ocean,all around me
it surrounds me
keeps me safe and warm

Blue skies all around me
It astounds me
on my way home

Love songs,all around me
It confounds me
we may never meet again

In my heart it’s true
there’s no one but you
for all my days

Starlight, all around me
It nearly drowns me
with every breath I take
every breath I take

ELANS LULLABYE


Inside the rivers light
I dive and ditch the night

Inside the rivers sweet
I dive and dive so deep

Inside the rivers sound
I dive and swim around

Inside the river flows
I dive and away I go
away I go….
