about

From the halls of King Arthur to the distant future ballads have been the stock-in-trade of all musicians. Music has changed over time in style, in instrument, in skill and interpretation, but one thing remains the same. Music exists to tell a story that mere words cannot convey—uplifting, inspiring, and understanding. Music can be joyous or heartfelt or it can come in the form of a heartbreaking lament, but whatever the story it tells it reaches out and speaks to the heart of the listener, changing them.

The songs I have chosen reflect the diversity of the role music plays in our lives. Melodies from as far back as the mythical halls of King Arthur to songs written in the distant future for time travelers and mutants are collected together into a cohesive narrator. Alternative rock, traditional folk, and music written for popular fandoms are gathered into one collection portrayed by a single harp and voice. I invite you to embrace the rich history of folk music, and to travel a well worn path from the mists of time—through all of space and time.

Track Name: The Prydwyn Sails Again
King Arthur sails the broken sea,
His ship the summer's pride,
To scale the walls of Caer Siddi
With tested men and tried.
I know but one who sails within
The ranks of Arthur's men
To challenge death at Caer Siddi.
The Prydwyn sails again.
The Prydwyn sails again.

At Arthur's call, the bravest
Of his knights did take to sea.
Of a legion, seven did return
Who once faced Caer Siddi.
So bear my token proudly, love,
And fight until the end.
I know your banner's carried as
The Prydwyn sails again.
The Prydwen sails again.

The Cauldron and the peace it brings
Are nowhere in this land.
May Arthur find them finally
With you among his band.
Keep your shield before you
And your head held high, my friend.
I'll bring my sword to join you when
The Prydwyn sails again.
The Prydwyn sails again.
The Prydwyn sails again...

They Prydwyn sails again.
Track Name: Nightmares
Hey Old Man, rest your head
You're breaking down inside
Armour's cracked, set to collapse
Please now, don't you cry

I've ended lives, I've ended worlds
I guess I've done it all
Fire, and ice, and rage inside
How long 'til I fall?

Somewhere all my darkest dreams are gathering
It's not enough to save the day
I can't escape my nightmares

Dreams have shown me who I am
A danger to myself
Trickster, feared, far from revered
So I must fear as well

Words and laughter, wearing thin
Breaking this disguise
Where do angels fear to tread?
How can I think to hide?

Somewhere all my darkest dreams are gathering
It's not enough to save the day
I can't escape my nightmares

Somewhere all my darkest dreams are gathering
It's not enough to save the day
I can't escape my nightmares
Track Name: Freshwater Tears
My feet resound on to the stoney street
Rain begins to pour down my face
I can't seem to cry again
The sky weeps with me

A mournful lullabye I can hear
Familiar as the sun and the moon
The voice of one calling, suddenly stilled
Silence, and no more

Cry, cry for the death of your friends
Cry for the end of the world
Cry, cry, until no tears will come
And the sky weeps for you
Freshwater tears

Voices chatter, I hear them now
All around me something is calling
The endless night is ever ahead
Rain drips down my face

Tears of sorrow and tears of pain
Tears of grief and tears of rage
My knife slipped and fell from my hand
I couldn't take his life

Cry, cry, for the life that was spared
Cry for the death of your brother
Cry, cry, until no tears will come
And the sky weeps for you
Freshwater tears

The killer runs down an empty street
The stranger who had once been my friend
I turned and fell on the rainsoaked pavement
And tried to take it all in

Blood and pain and endless grief
Replaces my anger at what has been done there
Everything I'd believed or known
Suddenly empty and worthless

Cry, cry for the world is unjust
Cry for the life of a killer
Cry, cry until no tears will come
And the sky weeps for you
Freshwater tears


My feet resound on to the stoney street
Rain begins to pour down my face
I can't seem to cry again
The sky weeps with me
Track Name: Lullaby for a Stormy Night
Little child, be not afraid
The rain pounds harsh against the glass
Like an unwanted stranger
There is no danger
I am here tonight

Little child
Be not afraid
Though thunder explodes
And lightning flash
Illuminates your tearstained face
I am here tonight

And someday you'll know
That nature is so
This same rain that draws you near me
Falls on rivers and land
And forests and sand
Makes the beautiful world that you see
In the morning

Little child
Be not afraid
The storm clouds mask your beloved moon
And its candlelight beams
Still keep pleasant dreams
I am here tonight

Little child
Be not afraid
The wind makes creatures of our trees
And the branches to hands
They're not real, understand
And I am here tonight

And someday you'll know
That nature is so
This same rain that draws you near me
Falls on rivers and land
And forest and sand
Makes the beautiful world that you see
In the morning

For you know, once even I
Was a little child
And I was afraid
But a gentle someone always came
To dry all my tears
Trade sweet sleep the fears
And to give a kiss goodnight

Well, now I am grown
And these years have shown
Rain's a part of how life goes
But it's dark and it's late
So I'll hold you and wait
'til your frightened eyes do close

And I hope that you'll know
That nature is so
This same rain that draws you near me
Falls on rivers and land
And forests and sand
Makes the beautiful world that you see
In the morning

Everything's fine in the morning
The rain will be gone in the morning
But I'll still be here in the morning
Track Name: Forgiven
Couldn't save you from the start
Love you so it hurts my soul
Can you forgive me for trying again
Your silence makes me hold my breath
Time has passed you by

Oh, for so long I've tried to shield you from the world
Oh, you couldn't face the freedom on your own
Here I am left in silence

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done's forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done's forgiven

I watched the clouds drifting away
Still the sun can't warm my face
I know it was destined to go wrong
You were looking for the great escape
To chase your demons away

Oh, for so long I've tried to shield you from the world
Oh, you couldn't face the freedom on your own
And here I am left in silence

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done's forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done's forgiven

I've been so lost since you've gone
Why not me before you?
Why did fate deceive me?
Everything turned out so wrong
Why did you leave me in silence?

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done's forgiven
You'll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that's done's forgiven
Track Name: Through All of Space and Time (Lullaby for a Time Lord)
Lay down your head and close your eyes
and travel into sleep
I know the world is wild and wide
with secrets you must keep
So many things to see and do
you do not wish to rest
Lay down your head and close your eyes
or you will miss the best

Your papa wanders through the stars
defending humankind
He fights for justice and for love
so gentle and so kind
Your eyes are open, watching, an
you'll be like him one day
But even saviors need their rest
and you are far away

The dreams that wait in slumberland
are fairer still than these
So close your eyes and dream them now
as pretty as you please
You can walk among the stars
through all of space and time
So little one lay down your head
and close your sleepy eyes
Track Name: If the World Should End
Don't think about tomorrow
We've only got today
There's nothing that I want from you
Not a word you have to say

You are all I need
And all I can defend
All I need to hold on to
If the world should end

In my imagination
I could not have made this up
In a world stranger than fiction
Ours is no fictional love

I can see the you
Under your second skin
I can feel your heartbeat quicken
Quicken and then slow

There's nothing else I need to know
And there's nothing you need to pretend
If the world should end

And the sky tonight is luminous
For all the wrong reasons
And every doorway is hiding something

And if this world should all
Come crashing down
I wouldn't care at all

And if there's no tomorrow
I'll have today again
There's no time for sorrow
When there's no such thing as time

And if the darkness will descend
Don't need a savior or a friend
I can say I've really loved
If the world should end
Track Name: Listen to the Wind
Time is a river that flows endlessly
And a life is a whisper, a kiss in a dream

Shadows dance behind the firelight
And all the spirits of the night remind us:
We are not alone

Tomorrow: a sun soon rising
And yesterday is there beside us
And it's never far away

If you listen to the wind you can hear me again
Even when I'm gone you can still hear the song
High up in the trees as it moves through the leaves
Listen to the wind, there's no end to my...

Love is forever a circle unbroken
The seasons keep changing; it always remains

Spring will melt the snows of winter
And the summer gives us days of light
So long till autumn makes them fade

Remember the sound of laughter
We ran together through the meadows
Still we thought our hearts could break

If you listen to the wind, you can hear me again
Even when I'm gone you can still hear the song
High up in the trees as it moves through the leaves
Listen to the wind and I'll send you my love

Listen to the wind where the sky meets the land
I'm not really gone I've been here all along
High up in the trees in the sound of the leaves
Listen to the wind there's no end to my...

Time is a river that flows to the sea
And a life is a whisper, a kiss in a dream.
