about

"Rumours We Make, Paths We Take" is my take of a human spirit's journey through love, loss, hope, despair, nature; while appreciating that it's perfect alright to be at one with yourself. Regardless of the anxiety, the fear, the love and hope, you choose your struggle, build your resilience and in doing so, your happiness :)

Dedicated to everyone who is on a mission to be and embrace who they are, irregardless of society's "rules" and "restrictions" Be different! Be yourself!!

Recorded between October 2015 - April 2016 at Neel's home studio

Track Name: Dark Horse
Verse:
I'm packing my bags and making a move
I'm driving away now, leave no stone un turned
The sun has shone for brighter days
I'm leaving all these broken dreams
To lead the life I want to live
Happiness is a choice, don't you agree?

Bridge:
I close my eyes and try to breathe
And feel the light inside of me

Chorus Rhythm (X 2)

Verse:
The road is rough, the road is sweet
I'll pray to Luck for a golden chance to meet
Self-belief, make your home right here with me
I'm leaving all these fallen thoughts
They rode me like a red and dark horse
Happiness is a choice, don't you agree?

Bridge:
I close my eyes and try to breathe
And feel the light inside of me

Chorus Rhythm (X 4)
Track Name: Think of Me
Verse:
I wake up in the morning and I see your face (next to me)
You fill my heart with grace
My heart is wrapped inside your fist and I don't know
Will this feeling grow? (Let's give it a chance)
We cuddle like lovers and we play like best friends
Don't ever want this to end (Oh no)
You give me more strength than I'd ever hoped for
And this is what I want to ask of you

Chorus:
When you're driving in your car, think of me
Think of all the love we could ever be (think of me)
Think of all the dreams we both could achieve (together)
Maybe you could be the one for me
Maybe you could be the one for me

Verse:
Hand in hand, I'll walk this road with you
And light up the streets with all the joy (you bring me)
When my lips...touch yours
I feel like I'm in paradise
I hope you feel the same way as I do
So true, I plead of you

Chorus:
When you're talking to your heart, think of me
Think of all the love we could ever be (think of me)
Think of all the dreams we both could achieve (together)
Maybe you could be the one for me
Maybe you could be the one for me (Well I hope so)

Bridge/Outro:
All these years before I saw you
I've been asleep for a million days
Sky ain't grey no more, it's just sparkling blue
My soul's alive with the sound of your name
All these years before I saw you
I've been asleep for a million days
Sky ain't grey no more, it's just sparkling blue
My soul's alive with the sound of your name
My soul's alive with the sound of your name
My soul's alive with the sound of your name
My soul's alive with the sound of your name
I've been asleep for a million days
Now I'm awake... :)
Track Name: Cruel
Verse:
I tried, I tried, I tried so hard
I tried, I tried, yet did I fall
You flew away
And left me crumbling

Verse:

I didn’t ask for nothing more
Just to be the one who you adore
My heart’s a stain
On this white carpet

Chorus:
Riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel as I sink within
Riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel as I sleep until

Oh, riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel’s the mask that she wears again, again, again, again
Verse:
They took, they took
My soul they shook
And left me hanging high and dry
Without a path to sweet solace

Verse:
Misunderstood
My luck it should
Melt to a pile of residue
Be cast away into the black sea

Chorus:
Riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel as I sink within
Oh, riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel as I ooze out pain
Riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel as I sleep until
Oh, riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel’s the mask that she wears again, again, again, again

Bridge:
If I, If I could break these chains
I’d believe in myself for one more day
I’ll swim; I’ll swim to the surface
Know that I won’t be drowning again

Chorus:
Riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel as I sink within
Oh, riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel as I ooze out pain
Riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel as I sleep until
Oh, riddles and rattles all over again
Cruel’s the mask that she wears again, again, again, again

Outro:
I try to fight this hard-boiled life
With every ounce of strength I’ve got
I know that I will see good days 
Track Name: She Now Flies
Verse:
Hey baby I watch you run around
You make all your little coos and sounds
Yeah daddy’s wondering just
Who you’ll grow up to be
I take your hand and teach you ways
To make you a nice human being
In a world that’s often filled with
Lies and hypocrisy

Chorus:
Never gonna let you down oh little girl
You know that I’m right here with you
Always gonna push for your little dreams
You know that I’m right here for you

Verse:
Hey baby you’ve grown very sweet
Now you’re off to university
Yeah I’m glad but a part of me just
Tears to see you leave
Hey baby I watch you leave the house
Call your name and then I come rush out
Hold you close and then I let go
Time to set you free

Final Chorus:
How fast all these years have; they’ve flown
And now it’s time to let go
How fast all this time has moved on
And see how far that you’ve gone
You know that I’ll love you always
Forever till the lights disappear
I know that you will go do wonders
This world is yours for the taking
Track Name: Midnight
Verse:
Take me to the market, I wanna see
All the cinnamons that you tried
I’m tired of wasting away all those new
Bottles of Jack Daniels
People crowding up the street yeah baby
Let’s go farther maybe
I’ll go anywhere as long as I’m with you
I’ll go anywhere as long as I’m with you

Verse:
Midnight 12’0 Clock, we’ve been
Walking for what seems like days
Do you wanna grab a bite and spend the
Night as we’re talking
You kiss me, take my hand and lead me
Down those moonlit freeways
I’ll go anywhere as long as I’m with you
I’ll go anywhere as long as I’m with you

Chorus:
We stand across the ocean
And watch the waves unfolding
Ah aaaaaeeya I say Ah aaaaaeya
Dancing by the ocean
With your arms around me
Ah aaaaaeeya I say Ah aaaaaeya
I

Verse:
The beach is young and free
Like the fire that burns in my heart
We start it up, lay back down
And count the stars that smile from the sky
I feel every inch of your fingers
Entwined inside mine
I’ll go anywhere as long as I’m with you
I’ll go anywhere as long as I’m with you

Break

Chorus:
We stand across the ocean
And watch the waves unfolding
Ah aaaaaeeya I say Ah aaaaaeya
Dancing by the ocean
With your arms around me
Ah aaaaaeeya I say Ah aaaaaeya
Walking down the street with no care in our heads
Living life by the fingertips on our hands
Ah aaaaaeeya I say Ah aaaaaeya
We cradle all these memories that last for a lifetime
Your eyes beckon to mine to follow you for a good time
Ah aaaaaeeya I say Ah aaaaaeya
A
I

Verse:
I play with fire
Only you I yearn
My heart with desire
Yet feelings turn

-Break-

Verse:
I promise you, I promise you, I promise you
I never saw her like that, my eyes are just for you
I’m trying, yeah I’m trying, yes I am trying
Slip fear just one sucker punch, to the matt it falls

Refrain:
Just to be with you
Just to be with you
Just to be with you
Get back in the ring again

Verse:
Lovelorn many times before
So scared of losing again
Will you still come for me
Deal with ambiguity

Bridge/Outro:
I was only ever searching for just true love
We be sitting in the merry go round that directs us with ease
It’s a rumour you make and the path I take
Believe me girl it’s all I ever want to be confined
Just to someone so sweet
oOoOO
Track Name: Colours
Verse:
Summer skies that come together
We’re turning forward the ancient wheels of time
And I feel the love within
Winter nights that keep on shining
A beacon that bonds both of us and I
’m reaching out again

Chorus:
So take my hand and let me show you
All the colours that we blend in to-
Gether we can paint the uni-
Verse with all the thoughts we feel are true

Verse:
Seen places, greeted faces
Seen tough shells that hide the softer core
And I’m feeling so inspired
I show my cards, roll the dice
Risk myself just for trust in you
I know it’ll be worth it

Chorus:
So take my hand and let me show you
All the colours that we blend in to-
Gether we can paint the uni-

Who work to let our passions ignite

All the colours that we blend in to-
Gether we can paint the uni-

Track Name: Who I Am
Verse:
So I woke up this morning
Put water on my face
Heart started a thumping
Like its running a rat race
Do I speak in riddles
When I say I’m learning as I go?
Try to avoid the cracks on that old road
I’m pouring out my soul right now to you

Take me or leave me, it’s who I am right now anyway

Verse:
Deliberate in my thoughts yeah
Please consider my hopes yeah
Moulding out of that snake skin
That had rendered me whole then
I’m not disbelieving
That I’ll find you waiting for me
And we will sit, enjoy a cuppa tea
Look back at all the times it took for me to
Reach your inner sanctum; makes me who I am anyways

Last bridge:
We’re all just one in this wide world
Feel that we all walk the same line
And even you may fall down sometimes
But I’ll take you regardless
Cuz that is who you are anyway
Track Name: Wild Heart
Verse:
Raindrops from the sky
Fall down on you and I
Wind speaks so gently
Oh the feeling
Creep across the wilderness
Into natures love caress
Deliver me into this wild
Freedom

Chorus:
Why oh wild heart
Speak so clearly
Why oh wild heart
Give so freely
Sky oh my sky
Rain so dearly
And the night it rambles on…it’s tales

Verse:
Swim to the sea my love
The ocean’s a calling now
Release yourself to the power of healing
Run away to far out grounds
Gather all your tools and herd
Deliver us into a state so
Free

Chorus:
Why oh wild heart
Speak so clearly
Why oh wild heart
Give so freely
Sky oh my sky
Rain so dearly
And the night it rambles on…
Why oh wild heart
Speak so clearly
Why oh wild heart
Give so freely
Sky oh my sky
Rain so dearly
And the night it rambles on…it’s tales
Track Name: Modern Cowboy
Verse:
Mama you once told me
Life’s worth waiting for
So why do I breathe today?
The cigarettes surround me
With my whiskey on the floor
The cycle repeats itself again

Chorus:
Let’s go back to the ranch where we lived
Back to the horses riding by the wind
Let’s go back to the innocence we had
Lord knows that’s the only happy, happy time
That I ever, ever had

Verse:
So I’m hitching rides often
Got a house and pay no rent
Sleep’s a forced luxury
They say I’m a modern cowboy
But I got no decent ride
Cuz my heart lies way o’er the hills

Chorus:
Let’s go back to the ranch where we lived
Back to the horses riding by the wind
Let’s go build some bridges like back then
Where we thought twice before we left our friends
Where our souls healed with love everyday
When your smile was just a phone call away
Let’s go back to the innocence we had
Back to the beautiful times that we shared
Lord knows that’s the only happy, happy time
That’s the only happy, happy time
That I’ve ever ever had
Ever had

Bridge:
Cuz I don’t feel any more feel any more feel any more
Na nana nan a nan a nan a nana
I want to go home
Track Name: The River
Verse:
A river flows south of years left behind
Memories swell; like waves they crash and fall
Your face lingers above, haunting me always
And I miss your kindness when we played as kids

Chorus:
River run down like prayers I create
For you, I’d pluck stars from the red hot sky
Your smiles still radiates like a thousand beams
In my dreams, I wish you’d come back home from Heaven


Verse:
And I still laugh at all the times we had
And when I fell, you always picked me up
When my time comes, I hope to see you on the other side
We’ll hold hands; we’ll play together like we did before
When my time comes, I hope to see you on the other side
We’ll hold hands; we’ll play together like we did before

Chorus:
River run down like prayers I create
For you, I’d pluck stars from the red hot sky
Your smiles still radiates like a thousand beams
In my dreams, I wish you’d come back home from Heaven

River run down like prayers I create
For you, I’d pluck stars from the red hot sky
Your smiles still radiates like a thousand beams
In my dreams, I wish you’d come back home from Heaven
Track Name: Climb The Hill
Verse:
It’s been a while since I’ve hung out
Haven’t left my room or crossed my street
Saw you in a dream I had
And I want to take you, Oh ooh, take you with me
Take a pinch of faith, slip on some jeans
Then I go off to the party
Not much of a talker but I’m sure that I could spend the night
For my fantasy

Pre-Chorus:
Over and over and over again
Feel the waves of life that embrace me my friend
Over and over and over again
I know that my love will only grow till the end

Chorus:
Let’s climb up the mountain
For love will rule the day
I’ll climb the hill with you
For love will rule the day

Verse:
Try to smile at people who show no emotion
And stare at me
Drink in hand, I wander around to search for a little piece
Of Serenity
Then I see you like a pearl trapped in a haze
Come close to me
You’re the missing piece to my puzzle, didn’t know I was
So empty

Pre-Chorus:
Over and over and over again
Feel the waves of life that embrace me my friend
Over and over and over again
I know that my love will only grow till the end

Chorus:
Let’s climb up the mountain
For love will rule the day
I’ll climb the hill with you
Let’s climb up the mountain
For love will rule the day
I’ll climb the hill with you
For love will rule the day
