Lead track off the latest single - recorded and produced by top producer gavin Monaghan at Magic Garden Studios

lyrics

I wear a coat of colours, many in its fold
I travel countless lands, their treasures I behold
I talk to strangers in a language they adore
I carry fortunes that I lay upon their door

When you need someone
When you have someone
When you leave someone
When you know someone
You’re only learning to let go

The painful silence is much more than I can take
The tortured soul within is shown upon your face
The air of tension is oppressive and unreal
The haunted features tell a tale you won’t reveal

When you love someone
When you need someone
When you have someone
When you know someone
You’re only learning to let go

Dance now with clogs upon my brow
When tomorrow comes you will see the past
Buried deep beneath the plough

Whenever birds fly south for wintertime
Then you will only find
Your summer’s here once more

Freedom floats on a thermal soaring skyward
Weightless then liberty will lead us onward

When you love someone
When you need someone
When you have someone
When you know someone
You’re only learning to let go

Sing now hold peace within your heart
When tomorrow comes you will see the truth
Buried deep within the earth

When birds fly home again from summertime
Then they will ever find
A nest is built on straw

Freedom floats on a thermal soaring skyward
Weightless as liberty will lead us onward

When you love someone
When you need someone
When you have someone
When you know someone
You’re only learning to let go
