about

During 2005-2006 I moved to San Diego and started writing and recording music with friends. The result was the formation of a collective of musicians known as Dogs On Leash, and the release of the album “Lions In The Shade”. This music was made during a great creative period for me, and full of beautiful times and magic.

Track Name: Lips (ft. Liz Parvin)
Lips (lyrics)

I can taste your lips
I can taste your lips against my lips
I can taste your hips
I can taste your hips against my lips
Our memories are salt in my sea, and the honey in my tea

Little butterfly skipping so way up high
into the moon
The salvia kicked in much too soon
Turn off the light your coming home
to the sound of a wailing moan

I want to see you smile
i want to see you smile when i close my eyes
into the night

I want to see you smile
i want to see you smile for miles and miles
for miles and miles

I want to see your eyes
I want to see your eyes reflect in the sky
reflect in the sky

I want to see your eyes
i want to see your eyes for miles and miles
for miles and miles
Track Name: Monkey Song
Monkey Song (lyrics)

I just want to lie down next to you
Said the monkey to moon
His eyes welled up it was so beautiful
Out of the city, visiting relatives in the jungle

Without his suitcase or his car keys
Just swinging from tree to tree
With nothing to hold, just swinging free
And there’s gotta be something for you and me
And he believes

Driving home he starts to turn down
Motorways of self doubt about what he’s doing
thinks to himself ‘Man there’s gotta be more to life
than the money he’s pursuing.’

So he throws away his car keys
And he heads for the trees
With nothing to hold just swinging free
And there’s gotta be something for you and me
And I believe, in humanity

So I throw away my car keys,
And I head for the trees
With nothing to hold, just swinging free
And there’s gotta be something for you and me
And we believe…
Track Name: Lions In The Shade
Lions In The Shade (lyrics)

Wine bottles hold candles, my heart’s filled with wine
I like your beard, it’s longer than mine
I sit in the sunshine, though I like the shade
We’re going outside, everybody can play

Scotch in the meantime, water while we eat
Whatever you fancy, we like to say fancy
Lying in the sunshine, lions in the shade
We’re going outside, everybody can play

When we’re lying in the shade
We’re like lions in the shade.
Track Name: Wings
Wings (lyrics)

I’ve got wings but I cant fly
I’ve drink but I’m tryin to stay dry
I’ve got a smoke for lonely nights
But I don’t feel like getting high

Shafts of street-light are my only guide
Still I stay at home and write

I’ve got tongues but they don’t talk
I’ve got legs but they wont walk
I’ve got a heart that’s caving in
All my knees and elbows are broken

I’ve got love but I feel blind
I’ve got eyes but can’t be kind
Track Name: The Sea
The Sea (lyrics)

I’ve done a bit of dancing
You know I like those old songs
I’ve done a bit of singing
And you sometimes sang along

But nothing compares to the sea when you’re lost
No nothing compares to sun

I’ve done some stargazing
You know they light my way home
I’ve done some love making
From the night until the dawn

But nothing compares to the sea when you’re lost
No nothing compares to sun

And I’ve done a bit of living
But I still feel so young
And I’ve done a bit of dreaming
But it never lasts long

But nothing compares to the sea when you’re lost
No nothing compares to sun
