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.

Track Name: Red Sky Night
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
Track Name: That Shivering Cold
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
Track Name: Leo Carrillo
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
Track Name: Cease For Love
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
Track Name: Maitland
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
Track Name: Hollow
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?
Track Name: Old London
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
Track Name: Passeridae
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
Track Name: Hearts
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
Track Name: Oh Invocation
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
Track Name: Halocline
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
Track Name: Toronto
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
