John Pogue For me, there are shades of 1967, George Harrison, and an intro ripe for a haunting Citar.
Easy listening well produced. Keep it going guys!!!!! Favorite track: Never So Far.

FDJ Old school prog not something you would expect to see on my BC page but I was brought up on Yes, early Genesis etc. and now and then someone comes along and reignites my interest in the genre. Salander have done just that with good songs ,lovely arrangements and great vocals. It 'aint ALWAYS about the riff! Favorite track: Never So Far.

Track Name: Never So Far
Never so Far

Will you offer a knife to my throat
Will you offer the warmth of your coat?
Release me now the space of the skies
Or keep me here with the cool of your eyes

Shaken and stirred I pace the night
Seeking the warmth of your light
Partake me create me and take my hand
Before you leave to me your foreign land

Now as our river runs to the sea
As always we are, we’ll never run free
Across the heavens ruled by a star
As close as you were and never so far

Ever remember the move of a hand
Draw from me deep scarlet bands
A dance of misfortune led by swift horses
Discovering your freedom from great forces

A hand brings words like rain
Fevered rhymes speak truth of pain
A gift from a heart as pure as the sun
Nevermore will I seem undone?

Now as our river runs to the sea
As always we are, we’ll never run free
Across velvet heavens ruled by a star
As close as you were and never so far

Now as our river runs to the sea
As always we are, we’ll never run free
Across velvet heavens ruled by a star
As close as you were and never so far
Track Name: ( A Letter To ) Annaline
(A letter to) Annaline

Throw it down, leaden sky
Draw the curtain across my eyes
From my sleep I am drawn
Half awake I stumble to the dawn

Annaline, return to me
The fool within has lost his key
And with every breath that I take
I relive my life’s mistake

Echoes of loving in the night
Hear the laughter, the cries of delight
Comes the madness, my world is undone
Please forgive me, my only one

Could we dance, and never stop
Will your hand reach and stop the clock
If you believe the words that I send
Then this dance should never end
Track Name: Drifting Misty Hillside
Drifting Misty Hillside

The misting drifting mountains
Dream awaken in my arms
Winding ringlets in your hair
To wonder in your charms
Morning sunshine of our lives
To kiss your eyes so bright
Dreaming songs of evermore
We danced the dewy night
We danced the dewy night


Loving by the lakeside
Laughing in the fields
Sipping wine friends so fine
You give me all I need

Washed up on some river
Driver Sam had lost his way
He up and went to find some friends
He left us there to play
He said he’d be an hour
We hoped he’d be all day
And when at last he found us
We sent him on his way, again
We sent him on his way, again

Loving by the lakeside
Laughing in the fields
Sipping wine friends so fine
You give me all I need

Climb down from misty mountains
Come sit beside my fire
Talk with joy of days gone by
It’s hard to feel much higher
Rise out of the ocean
Sing me a song of love
Journey to the light of dawn
Just you with stars above
Just you with stars above

Loving by the lakeside
Laughing in the fields
Sipping wine friends so fine
You give me all I need
Track Name: Dropping The Catch
Dropping the Catch

Can a man live broken dreams?
'Cause it's never how it seemed
To a boy with golden visions
Of the life he wants to lead

How he tried with all his might
To do the things that he saw right
Now it seems that every other turn
Leads him further from the light

Leaving,
From a life where nothings left
Where a cause has no effect
When dreams are pinned like donkeys tails
To a shining hope that somehow failed
I'm bleeding
Can you ever show me the way?
Acting lines in my own play
Just a walk-on part in something lost
Do these feeble words defy the cost?

Senseless in the winter cold
With summer dreams of old
When the world lay at my hand
Waiting for my word
Now the walls are closing in
Must I now pay for a sin?
Which I must admit I never saw
Before it tore my life away

Leaving,
From a life where nothings left
Where a cause has no effect
When dreams are pinned like donkeys tails
To a shining hope that somehow failed
I'm bleeding
Can you ever show me the way?
Acting lines in my own play
Just a walk-on part in something lost
Do these feeble words defy the cost?
Track Name: Behind The Tears
Behind the Tears

Love is something special
Love is from the heart
Leading through dimensions
To a tender part
From a starry midnight
To a sunlit park
We are souls together
Joining by the heart

I love you...I want you
I need you...You’re beautiful
‘Cause I always saw the love behind the tears

In the misty morning
In the sun’s arising
See you breathing softly
Nothing more surprising
Then I kiss your lips
Watching as you’re breathing
Tears all count for nothing
True love is just believing

I love you...I want you
I need you...You’re beautiful
‘Cause I always saw the love behind the tears

Too many want a fantasy
Too many want what can’t be real
They take the path to sorrow
When they forget to feel
Dear Lady I still love you
Though we’ve seen many years
Even through our darkness
I always saw the love behind the tears
Track Name: Wrong Kinda Woman
Wrong Kinda Woman

It was a long time ago
There were things I had to learn
I started off too slow
Didn’t know which way to turn

Fallin’ ‘round in a big wide world
Didn’t mean too much to me
Then much to my surprise
She came walkin’ right up to me

Got my first taste of whiskey
Ended up in such a mess
‘Cause of the wrong kind of woman
In the right kind of dress

I’m only flesh and muscle
Only skin and bone
This aint no fairy story
Guess I broke too many homes
Guess I tried hard to be respectable
Keep away from cold regret
But she’s looking so delectable
I gotta find out what I can get

So I pour myself another shot of whiskey
I need a little love interest
From the wrong kind of woman
In the right kind of dress

Been running’ around this big old world
So many things have come and gone
Every wrinkle on my face tells a story
Drink and women in every one

So if you want to pass some time
Put a guitar in my hand
And I’ll find a little inspiration
Write a lyric for the band

Just give me a bottle of whiskey
And I’ll try hard to impress
The wrong kind of woman
In the right kind of dress
Track Name: Before The World Went Mad
Before The World Went Mad

They called it war
It’s alright
They called it war
They knew anyone would fight
Killing people, and breaking law
To justify it, they called it war

They were waiting for the men to get in line
But the men were just thinking that they were fine
Shouting at the men to get in line
But the men were just thinking that they were fine
They were just fine
They were just fine
They were just fine
Track Name: Stress Related Illness
Stress Related Illness

Don’t worry [x 16]
Don’t worry; I’m not going to hurt you
Aaaarghhh !!
Track Name: Connections
Connections
 
Maybe it was something as we passed Cathedral Square
Maybe it was something that we knew we shouldn't share
But maybe it was something that was drifting in the air
And maybe I could share it with you

I speak of light, a spark of life, a surge of energy
Last moment drifting into the need of you from me
Turn back the clocks, unfold the web of chemistry
Turn out the light, and I might lose you from view

I ask myself
Do you understand?
You might think me a fool
I ask myself
Why do I stand here?
Am I cool or cruel?
Why am I breaking the rules?

Don't question aspects of a certain future
These are the concerns of the weak and immature
You are a comet arcing into the sky
The only certainty is when, before why

I ask myself
Do you understand?
You might think me a fool
I ask myself
Why do I stand here?
Am I cool or cruel?
Why am I breaking the rules!

In different circles around we keep turning
Indifferent circles we could lose our common ground
Unspoken words affect the end of the play
What is, what was, what might be,
Please don’t change in any way

Maybe it was something as we passed Cathedral Square
Maybe it was something that we knew we shouldn't share
But maybe it was something that was drifting in the air
And maybe I shouldn’t share it with you

I ask myself
Do you understand?
You might think me a fool
I ask myself
Why do I stand here?
Am I cool or cruel?
Why am I breaking the rules!
