In my heart, in my shoes In my own home I was lost, I was lost I did roam She was gone, she was gone Far from my home I would wait, I would wait For that red sky at dawn It's gonna be a red sky tonight Gathering troubles Watching them leave and take flight When we go, when we meet When the oceans in-between Turn to land, all the sand Will burn beneath our feet As we run towards each other Feel the warm embrace All the light of the summer Shining on her face
2.
Saw the light that shone Whenever you're close It pierced through the darkness And touched my soul My heart was down in the lowest of lows Crushed by the thought of leaving you When I was God knows where You were my hope in my despair That shivering cold will cover my bones When I leave you there Felt the comfort of knowing my home In the thoughts that you hold Whenever I'm gone My heart was down in the lowest of lows Crushed by the thought of leaving you

Leo Carrillo 04:05
You've been fighting love I've been gone so long And I wish that I could stay With you by your side And through the night But you're lying an ocean away You can call me anytime you like You can call me anytime you like I will see you in your white dress Ring on your finger and curls in your hair In the California sun I will see you out through my window Over the meadow of Leo Carillo's California sun You've been lonesome love Yet you carried on with a fire that never grew cold Held onto that thought when I'll hold you close And know that you are my home
4.
I'm gonna take my time walk slow in the summer breeze fix my mind on all the pretty things just like your eyes and hide it in a part of my mind That I don't see light and it's hard to breathe I want to kiss you until it feels like falling into the light of a new day and though the steady hands of time are ever turning They will cease for love and cease the day I wanna hear the rain falling on my window pane when it's cold outside whenever the sun pulls down its shade I wanna feel your pulse moving in my every vein when I cuddle up close I don't wanna miss one thing

Maitland 04:28
God bless this holy night Her scent surrounding me Pours into my lungs Now I can breathe Tempered by her love My heart it couldn't see The moment in time She'd disappear All the moons so blue The night's she pulled me through I remember I remember Her light is like the sun And breaks the earth Whenever I fall New stems appear A shadow where I run creeping in the dirt Whenever I call She won't be near All the moons so blue The night's she pulled me through I remember I remember Waiting for the light of dawn You were the sun that could keep me warm Always waiting there beside me I remember

Hollow 03:32
So many fearsome strangers So many darkened rooms You can run for the covers Hide the light in you But you're fighting when the fire grows cold Light up when the love gets old When your eyes grow tired And your heart pulls through So many lifeless lovers So many idle fools They're taking and taking Trying to break you But you're fighting when the fire grows cold Light up when the love gets old When your eyes grow tired And your heart pulls through Why do we love? Why do we sink our sorrows? Throw our hearts in the undertow? Why do we give when we have nothing at all?

Old London 06:25
Old london I have wandered Did you recover from the war My grandfather hid in a bunker Under the rubble of your homes Old maiden gather your children Upon a hillside, tell them to run Carrying courage valour and love with Them in the battle far from their home And their love will never die And their love will never die So give all you can Give all you can tonight Old money gathering interest All from the middle and below You are relentless robbing our children But you are defeated by love in the end For our love will never die For our love will never die So give all you can Give all you can tonight

Passeridae 02:40
I had a dream last night You were by my side And the whole world started to slow As you pulled Your forehead towards mine Oh what a terrible thing To wake to this nightmare that I live Where you sing like the sparrow That breaks through the dawn And when I wake You've already gone I hope you dream tonight And find me by your side Only seven more days And you may rest Your lips upon mine I had a dream last night You were by my side weathered and old Crippled and cold But your heart Was still beating upon mine
9.
Hearts 04:38
You and I we have time We have hope in us both Throw our caution to the wind We can go wherever it may go The end is near if we're young enough to wait If we're brave enough to take it on We'll fight unto the grave We'll go dive into the lake Swim until we sink We will give of all our love Until our hearts have given in You and I can see the world Just as beautiful as all The peculiar things in us both We've grown to love
10.
All of my dreams have come All of my needs have gone On the day you arrived On the day that I found you All of my guards have fallen All of my thoughts are of you Until the day you arrive Until the day when I find you By my side You in my heart Holding mine in your hands You are home And I can't explain when you love All of my fears have died All insecurities left in the dust Born for the day you arrived Born for the day when I find you By my side
11.
Halocline 04:19
I've been living for today waste words with every breath I take And I'm dying every morning before I wake And I'm hoping it's the day I'll come back alive, come alive again I'll come back alive, come alive again I recall that you were smiling There was something in your eyes But I have changed and for the worst I know it hurts And love I promise this will die Oh me oh my the tide is turning All the haloclines fade And I will soon become a lover of the things we shed I'll come back alive, come alive again I'll come back alive, come alive again I've been walking with a stumble I trip and then I fall I regret saying to run was overrated When I'm moving at a crawl Oh me oh my the tide is turning All the haloclines fade And I will soon become a lover of the things we shed I'll come back alive, come alive again I'll come back alive, come alive again

Toronto 04:39
Just one more night One more moment by your side In this fearless warmth Moving through your spine Those delicate lips have got a way of making me stronger We've got a good thing going on I know we can make it last together But tonight Toronto is calling And your eyes won't be meeting with mine in the morning And I never want to leave I never want to go No not ever We've got a good thing going on I know we can make it last together Just one more kiss One more endless night Losing our way with words Under the cover of moonlight If I was ever made for love I swear it was never for another We've got a good thing going on I know we can make it last together But tonight Toronto is calling And your eyes won't be meeting with mine in the morning And I never want to leave I never want to go No not ever We've got a good thing going on know we can make it last together We've got a good thing going on know we can make it last forever

about

This album was written during a long distance relationship that culminated in me marrying the love of my life. Red Sky Night as in shepherds delight was an idea I had to keep me thinking about the incredible times together with her that were waiting around the corner. I didn't want to focus on the hardships of being apart for so long, so instead I created this. It's a happy, uplifting album and I hope it brings you as much joy listening to as it as it gave me to make it.
