Track Name: You'll Never Know (Demo)
As I gaze across the sea, knowing you are part of me
My love is grieving
Want you to reach and hold my hand
Through this dark and desperate land
Of fear and unbelieving

You’ll never know, you’ll never know
You’ll never know what you mean to me

There’s a burden in the truth, amongst the lies a hidden proof
A body bleeding
How can my love be secure and you still stand there so unsure
Deaf to my pleading?

You’ll never know, you’ll never know
You’ll never know what you mean to me

I am the stillness in the storm and
you are made in heaven’s form
When will you see it?
And how much longer will it be before you see the God in me?
Reach deep to feel it

You’ll never know, you’ll never know
You’ll never know what you mean to me
Track Name: Free Gypsy (Demo)
Unfettered gypsy heart, fly wild spirit
Unchained creative force, free expression
Regenerated thoughts, purer the vision
Rekindled human soul, warm is the passion within

This world is not my home, a traveller passes through
No treasures tug these strings, my heart belongs to you

Unbounded gypsy heart, nothing restraining
Unbridled lips declare love's true anthem
Inspired words of life, guiding the journey
Reborn to breathe afresh, sweet the beginning anew

This world is not my home, a traveller passes through
No treasures tug these strings, my heart belongs to you
Track Name: Touch (Demo)
Sunrise bring your colours
Lift me to the heights with you
Deeper then the oceans
Higher than the mountains
Is the love I have for you

Your touch warms me as a fire
Lifts my soul higher
I'm excited by love
Your touch warms me as a fire
Higher
I'm excited by love

Sunset fill my senses
Hold me in a warm embrace
Dearer than a brother
Closer than a lover
Is the hand upon my face

Your touch warms me as a fire
Lifts my soul higher
I'm excited by love
Your touch warms me as a fire
Higher
I'm excited by love
Track Name: Fragile (Demo)
Fragile like, like the need for being heard
And fragile like, like the hurt caused by a word
And fragile, so fragile we are

Fragile like, like a child in the crossfire
And fragile like, like the truth is to a liar
And fragile, so fragile we are

Lord, you made yourself fragile in this hardened world
Lord, you made yourself
Oohoo!

Fragile like, like the autumn’s falling fears
And fragile like, like a lover’s flowing tears
And fragile, so fragile we are

Lord, you made yourself fragile in this hardened world
Lord, you made yourself
Oohoo!

Take hold of me, take care of me, yeah!

Fragile like, like the world’s dissolving pain
And fragile like, like a painting in the rain
And fragile, so fragile we are

Lord, you made yourself fragile in this hardened world
Lord, you made yourself
Oohoo!

Take hold of me, take care of me, yeah!
