about

"Light And Colour" is my sequel to "With Love From Where You're Not". After over a year of anticipation from my end I'm incredibly excited to finally be able to release it. Expect more and better guitar work, heavier Relient K/Hawk Nelson influences, richer harmonies, punchier drums, more organic instrumental playing, thicker synths, dreamier strings and more dynamic vocals. I honestly believe this album blows my older stuff away - but I'll let you be the judge of that. Enjoy!

Track Name: Valentine's Day
Roses are red
And violets are purple
But that doesn't rhyme
So instead we say blue
I used to be alone
On Valentine's Day
Thank the Lord for the day I met you

And winter may come
And blow out the candles
But we'll take the sky
And we'll paint it in blue
The air once was cold
On Valentine's Day
But the sunlight came when I met you

We woke before dawn
And danced with the flowers
As the frost on the grass showed its wintergreen hue
I used to believe
Love was Valentine's Day
But I know now it's when I'm with you

And the dewy ground cooled
And sparkled in twilight
As fireworks lit up the skyline above
You were holding my hand
Just like Valentine's Day
And I knew what it was to feel love

Spring will come soon
And don't ever forget how to bloom

All those days I spent alone
How I wish I had known
God had set you aside
My Valentine

September was young
And so was the springtime
And the wind that was blowing
Made everything new
The summer would pass
Before Valentine's Day
But at least then I still would have you

Yeah, I used to be alone
On Valentine's Day
Thank the Lord for the day I met you
Track Name: Airport Dreams
Fill your head with airport dreams
Cloudy days and silver beams of light
As we take off into the night

Engines scream the liftoff noise
Close your eyes and drift off to the sound
And leave your worries back on the ground

Show me how to love
Show me how to dream
Close your eyes and take me to a place I've never been

Up above the sky
It's never been so clear
Don't forget to smile as you leave the atmosphere
My dear

Nighttimes when we counted stars
Freezing rain and windy afternoons
As the winter took over June

City dates and bus delays
I once thought those old days were all gone
But now in dreams they all live on

Are you here
Or are you somewhere far beneath the clouds
When we fly and breathe the sky
Don't ever look back down
Track Name: There's Room On My Trolley For Two
All alone in a carpark at night
Sitting still on a trolley by streetlight
And lonely again
I watch the cars going by

Suddenly, she appears next to me
Though I'm startled, I smile politely
And talking to pretty girls is hard
But I'll try

So I say
Hey, you're real pretty
And it'd be a pity
To not sit here with you
'Cause there's room on my trolley for two

When she moves, it's only with grace
When she smiles, well, I'm stunned by her face
And when she sits at my side
I know I've been blessed

And I know I'm no Romeo yet
But please sit next to me, Juliet
And a carpark is no place for love
But I'm doing my best
Track Name: To Light
The morning arrives and I'm waking alone
And I'm looking around at the life I have known
All the darkness and ice that once kept us apart
And the empty despair that corroded my heart

My freedom was bought by Your death on the cross
But that liberty came at a terrible cost
Yet that was Your purpose, to call me back home
And I realise now You have left me my own

To turn them from darkness to light
That's why you have your life
So don't think you're losing the fight
Leave your old life and live for the light

And all things are lawful, I know this is true
But the life that I live is to glorify You
So they won't have power to take hold of me
And under your grace, Lord, I know I'm set free

I'll fight off the weakness that poisons my flesh
I'll wrest back control from this body of death
And the light that is in me will shine like the sun
As I serve the captain of my salvation

To turn them from darkness to light
That's why you have your life
So don't think you're losing the fight
Leave your old life and live for the light

And as you turn the page
Watch your whole life change

Feel the love that changed your life
Know now to truly live is Christ
Let your broken spirit glow so bright
With His light

To turn them from darkness to light
To love them with all of your might
To lean on that hope through the night
Leave your old life and live for the light
Track Name: More Beautiful Than You Believe
She looks into the mirror
And sighs at what she sees
As she asks herself
Could anybody possibly love me

Her parents in the kitchen
Are fighting once again
So she dives under the bed covers
And wishes for a friend

How could a girl so beautiful
Look at herself and not know it at all?

She locks herself away
Self-detained in prison cells
And she looks over the balcony
Wondering who'd care if she fell

But as she jumps I catch her
I save her sinking heart
And gradually I'll teach her how to find a brand new start

How could a girl so beautiful
Look at herself and not know it at all?
And how could someone loved so much in God's eyes
Look at themselves and not realise that

You are more beautiful than you believe
You sparkle more than what this dark world sees
So when it feels like things are just too much to bear
Don't despair
I love you and we'll get there
Track Name: The Sunset Conspiracy
Come home late and open the latch
To the balcony door and you might catch me
Catching a glimpse of the sky as the sun goes down

I know it gets dark by eight o' clock
But I always wondered why the daylight stops
It seems like the nights are longer in this town

And I don't believe that the sun has to set
So I'm going to chase it round the world tonight
And if I'm not back by the morning you'll know I was right

'Cause I've lived in this darkness for far too long
And I'm all too familiar with how things change
But I pray that you are one thing that stays the same
Through all of this

A plane ticket bound for the west should do
And my favourite picture of me and you
To keep you in my heart when I'm away

So off I'll fly with my mind on one girl
Charting a course for the end of the world
Hoping to find a way to chase the day

'Cause I don't believe that the sun has to set
So I'm going to chase it round the world tonight
And if I'm not back by the morning you'll know I was right

'Cause I've lived in this darkness for far too long
And I'm all too familiar with how things change
But I pray that you are one thing that stays the same
Through all of this

My whole life, the light I chased
Never seemed to be in the same place
And if the sunset disappears
At least I'll end up here with you

But still I don't believe that the sun has to set
So I'm going to chase it round the world tonight
And if I'm not back by the morning you'll know I was right

'Cause I've lived in this darkness for far too long
And I'm all too familiar with how things change
But I pray that you are one thing that stays the same
Through all of this
Track Name: Light And Colour
The dark was all there was before
He said, Let there be light
And there I was, alone, afraid
As I brightened up the night

I saw the world in monochrome
And slowly lit the day
And I was Light, the luminance
But all I saw was grey

I knew I had a purpose but what kind I didn't know
I always knew I'd one day let my true colours show
The shades of grey and darkness used to dim my brightest hue
I used to shine alone until the day that I met you

I used to think I wasn't there
'Cause in the dark I'm gone
All green and blue and crimson hues
Are black before the dawn

And so I met depression
And it wouldn't let me go
Until I found the light
And I discovered how to glow

All my life I've been alone
But deep down I've always known
That somewhere out there someone
Was created just for me

And with patience I believed
With my red heart on my silver sleeve
But now the light is here and I can see
Track Name: Dazzling By Design
School on a summer's day
Chasing daydreams away
When I see the girl I'm dreaming of
She passes with just a wink
And catching my breath I think
Oh how I hate falling in love

Can someone please remind me
About where I belong
'Cause I thought I had a chance
But I think I got it wrong
She's smart and simply stunning
How does she find the time?
I guess I'll never know 'cause
She's dazzling by design

And though everyone knows that she's
Perfect as she can be
She doesn't seem to realise
God doesn't make mistakes
And one look is all it takes
Till you've been captured by her eyes

I tell her I like her dress
Hoping she notices
She's what I actually admire
And I thought my hopes weren't too high
But now I realise
I couldn't set them any higher

Can someone please remind me
About where I belong
'Cause I thought I had a chance
But I think I got it wrong
She's smart and simply stunning
How does she find the time?
I guess I'll never know 'cause
She's dazzling by design

Cinderella
Molto bella
With her perfect princess crown
League above me
Could you love me
Or am I just too far down
Picture perfect
Am I worth it
And how do you dazzle all the time
It's by design, oh

I know it's only just begun
But something tells me she's the one
And when she shines it's hard to see
'Cause she was made to dazzle me
Track Name: Live Like You
Sometimes I feel I must be worthless
But You said, have faith, and I'll do the rest
I know I'm nothing close to perfect
But for You, I swear I'll do my best

Save me a place in your heart tonight
Keep me secure as I hold on tight
Steady my path when I feel unsure
Change my heart till it's more like Yours

Help me to live so Your glory shows
'Cause how I'm alive only Heaven knows
Teach me to love them in all that I do
'Cause God, all I want is to live like You

I tried to find You by piling up my good deeds
But all my right turns got me back where I started
Until you said, Son, I have what you need
And suddenly the shadows all departed

Life is what you make of it
I see a chance and I'm taking it
Forgiveness is a gift I can't ignore

I'm a prisoner and You hold the key
O God, O God please set me free
So I can make this life worth so much more
And live like You
Track Name: Until Blue Skies Return
Once upon a time
It was wintertime here
But the girl with golden hair
Brought the summer
And made the skies turn clear

We set the world alight
As we dreamed on the shore
But December wouldn't last
And those days were gone for evermore

'Cause the cold days returned with a vengeance
So I'll weather the tide as it turns
And the wind chill will sting
But I'll hope for the spring
And I'll never forget who we were
Until blue skies return

I remember standing still
As I yearned for the sun
But she left me staring at the lights
As they died out one by one

And slowly I convinced myself
That you had never come
'Cause if you were never here
Then the rain was never ever gone

But still the cold days returned with a vengeance
So I'll weather the tide as it turns
And the wind chill will sting
But I'll hope for the spring
And I'll never forget who we were
Until blue skies return

And I've been waiting so long
For the summer to return and stay
Oh, someday
Maybe then I'll see
If I loved you then I should have let you go
But just know

That when cold days return with a vengeance
And the frost of the wind starts to burn
Though the snow chill might sting
Just remember the spring
'Cause I'll never forget who we were
Until blue skies return
