Track Name: Young
Young
©Jeff Jewkes / ASCAP

When we are young
We’re falling on our head
‘Cause we can’t restrain
The ill-timed wearing of our welcome

When we are young
We’re falling on our heart
In a lover’s bane
‘Cause we are lacking in our wisdom

Like the summer dying fast
We’re fumbling the hold. . .
The hold on who we are

When we are young. . .
Landing hard in a tragedy
With our potential that we don’t see

When we are young. . .
Living in our head, trying to break free
From the grace we show so awfully

When we are young
We are. . .young
Track Name: My Animal
My Animal
©Jeff Jewkes / ASCAP

Something lurks inside
Fortune lost, star-crossed
Dr. Jekyll's Hyde
In my heart, in my pride

And I'm wondering who's the master. . .

In a strange unknown
There are places I fear to go
Where a creature roams
In the forest of my soul. . .

My animal. . .

Something moves within
Tucked away, in the fray

That calls out to my fear. . .
"It is me, I am here"

Threatening my ever after
Threatening my gift of love. . .

In a strange unknown
There are places I fear to go
Where a creature roams
In the forest of my soul. . .

My animal. . .
My animal. . .

Like Twiddledee and Twiddledum
My love, the show has just begun

I don't know what you see in me
Hoping your kiss will set me free

Our time is here, so are you sure
I'm not the Black dog of the moor

To mend my heart before I fall
Destroy this monster, make it disappear. . .

In a strange unknown
There are places I fear to go
Where a creature roams
In the forest of my soul. . .

My animal. . .
My animal. . .
Track Name: Way You Live Running
Way You Live Running
©Jeff Jewkes / ASCAP

Remember when you would kiss the sky?
I remember then, watching you fly. . .

And on your wings
Above all things
How I could swing much higher than I did before we met
I don't forget
It's different now. . .

Are you running?
What emotion grieves inside?
You're running now. . .

The way you live running. . .
Always gone like something's catching up somehow

You would not be swayed from the way we were
'Cause you were not afraid of love. . .

Picture time-worn photographs as little postcards of who we are
Forever locked in time
Don't let age spoil you. . .

Climb on my wings and find those things my love can bring
Grown stronger than it was from when we met
You will forget
What's different now. . .

Are you running?
What emotion grieves inside?
You're running now. . .

The way you live running. . .
Always gone like something's catching up somehow. . .

. . .Like the wolf and the wind come to blow your house in
. . .Like the yang lost to yin. . .

Climb on my wings and find those things my love can bring

Grown stronger than it was from when we met
You will forget
What's different now. . .

Are you running?. . .
Track Name: The Other Side
The Other Side
©Jeff Jewkes / ASCAP

Light the candles brightly one by one
Imagine you are shining like the sun

Like the sun. . .
Don't come undone, you're the sun. . .
Illuminate old photographs of me. . .

Catch the moments
Hold those moments
There's no mystery in all your
searching. . .

Just the hands of time that turn for you to find my love is true
When I will run again, away with you. . .

Days endure for always 'til they're gone
Circumstances never counted on

But you are strong
You will go on, as you belong to every sunrise I was blessed to see. . .

Catch the moments
Hold those moments
There's no mystery in all your
searching. . .

Just the hands of time that turn for you to find my love is true
When I will run again, away with you. . .

I'm waiting for you
I'm waiting for you
On the other side
I'm waiting for you
On the other side

I will run again, away with you
On the other side. . .

Catch the moments
Hold those moments
There's no mystery in all your searching. . .

Just the hands of time that turn for you to find my love is true
When I will run again, away with you. . .
When I will run again, away with you. . .
Track Name: Divin' Down
Divin’ Down
©Jeff Jewkes / ASCAP

When the zephyr’s blowin’, you caress the sands
And the spring tide’s flowin’ through your hands

Here, each moment, little truths of you are found
Going under, I am divin’ down

I’m divin’ down deep in the ocean
Into your sea of emotion
Holdin’ the notion that you care

Is Davy Jones around here?
Is he on your side?

. . .No breakwater near to shield my pride
But friends keep tellin’ me that luck favors the brave
And your signal’s sendin’ me beneath the wave. . .

I’m divin’ down deep in the ocean
Into your sea of emotion
Holdin’ the notion that you care

I’m divin’ down deep in the ocean
Lookin’ for love and devotion, adrift in your motion

Are you there in the good night, romancin’ the moonlight?
Up from the depths of your passion, your manner and fashion
How I could drown as ever before. . .

But I’m divin’ down. . .
. . .Holdin’ the notion that you care

I’m divin’ down deep in the ocean
Lookin’ for love and devotion, adrift in your motion
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Track Name: Only Survivors
Only Survivors
©Jeff Jewkes / ASCAP

Lonely isles. . .
Am I coming or going from these keys of no defense?

I'm stranded here
My good ship's disappeared

Guessing I'm the only survivor
A paradoxical mystery
No trace. . .
Lost in spacious wilderness and sea
Oh, where else could I be?

Winsome sounds. . .
Fleeting through jet liquid night
Rising from the water's edge

I could be wrong
Is that a Siren's song?

Should I fear the only survivor of every sailor's fantasy?
Her calls, enchanting as the stars of Pleiades
Oh, who else could she. . .

Slowly, you appear. . .
From the depths. . .in the distance. . .

The color of your hair says you're the one
You are the moon and sun to me
You blind me. . .
You blind me. . .

She says,
"I am the only one"
Only survivor
"And you are my only one"
Only survivor
"And we are the only ones"

"Now, sow your flames in me
Put on these chains you see
Oh, who else should I be?"

"Only Survivors. . ."
Only survivors. . .

"I am the only one"
Only survivors
"I am the one. . ."

Only Survivors. . .
Track Name: Real Magik
Real Magik
©Jeff Jewkes / ASCAP

He might find her in the meads
Or on the Isle of Apples
His wounds, She will be healing
Enchantress of the king

All the magik in her hands. . .
All the magik in her hands. . .
All the magik in her soul
Is trying to find a way to draw his mind
To what he needs to know

She could show him every sigil
And ancient craft
Cleanse him under a waning moon. . .

All the magik in her hands. . .
All the magik in her hands. . .
All the magik in her soul
Is trying to find a way to draw his mind
To what he needs to know

Draw his mind to what he needs. . .

Somewhere far in unconscious strands
Memories of the Summerlands. . .
Memories of lead turned to gold. . .
Myths and legends to recall
The dark must fall. . .
Light conquers all. . .

All the magik in her hands. . .
All the magik in her hands. . .
All the magik in her soul
Is trying to find a way to draw his mind
To what he needs to know

Draw his mind
To the secret she has known
Deep in the mind, the real magik
Track Name: Annabel In The Moonlight
Annabel In The Moonlight
©Jeff Jewkes / ASCAP

Annabel in the moonlight,
Caught in the Benguela,
In the moonlight. . .

From a deepening haze, 
Came breaching in, starboard waters
Raised high was your tea cup
A toast to your poor doomed Dunedin Star

Annabel in the moonlight. . .

Have your thoughts 
Drifted like wandering shoals
From the roar of the breakers?
Has your cup become filled with 
The sands of the shore?

In this foreign soil, a foreboding toil

To be cast away. . .
To be cast away. . .

You’ll be waiting. . . 

Endless waiting. . .
Endless hoping for a light to come. . .
