about

54 holds a special place in my heart as it was my grandmas house. I wanted to mark the 6 year anniversary with a tribute and "Ghost of your Soul" is a song I wrote dedicated to her.
54 is all of me.

Track Name: Shipwrecked
Ship leaves the dock and heads to the sea
Captain looks through the glass of his telescope and realises the sea is risky
Out of his depth he is gasping and reaching for air
No one can help a man of his stature cause he is to smart to care
To smart to care

On the deck the cabin boy does his chores
Bullied and moved from pillar to post, he is to scared to aproach
The man who controls, steers and directs the helm
If cabin boy stands up to captain then he is marooned and left stranded
Left stranded

*Interlude*

Your not a boy, you are a man who has grown
Abandon this ship and forget who you work for cause you are not alone
Not alone
Not alone
Not alone
Track Name: Dear Diary
Dear Diary I've got something to share
No one will listen so I'll write on the pages
Child, child don't whimper don't you cry
No one is blind to the shadows on the ground

Give me some advice, what can I do right?

The sky is to far to grab hold of me
Passengers take a seat

Someone's afraid and some is scared
But listen to these words I was told by a traveller
She said there's some good
But there's always some bad
Don't live life in fear and become a stranger

Give me some advice, what can I do right?

The sky is to far to grab hold of me
Passengers take a..

We are not perfect, but we strive imperfection
There's a bruise on a knife which is ready to be released
Cause a change
Is coming
For me

Now the sky's not to far to grab hold of dreams
Passengers take a
Passengers take a
Passengers take a seat

Take a seat
Seat, Seat Seat
Track Name: Bear Hunt
Once apon a time when I was young there was a story read every night
We're going on a bear hunt and we're going to catch a big one
Rewinding the pages of time

Oh engraved in my head no photograph to prove
Memories of my youth
we go..

Ohh...

Fantastically magic but growing up is tragic cause we loose the power
to believe
All we see is reality and all its brutality in things we don't want to do

Oh we can't go over it, we can't get under it
We've got to go through
Because..

Ohh..

What a beautiful day
We're not scared, we're not scared
Not going in the cave
Not today no not today
Because..

Ohh...
Track Name: Ghost of your Soul
Take it all
Pull me down like gravity and watch me fall
I don't want to leave
You've taken everything from those words that I have feared
Suspended like a bat upside down I'm afraid of the day

That when I go away
The sun it turns to rain and the light becomes my night
And the ghost of your soul will always be there to hold
The light that lives on ground
Forever now

Snowdrop kiss
Falling down and landing on those warm wet cheeks
I don't want to leave
I can't beleive it's time, it happened so quickly
Although I may be gone
We're joined together and memories last forever I'm still living on

Cause when I go away
The sun it turns to rain and the light becomes my night
And the ghost of your soul will always be there to hold
The light that lives on ground
Forever now
