about

This record is about "breaking through". Breaking through the constraint of needing a backup plan to do what it is you REALLY want to do, to let go of certain thoughts or memories only holding you back, to have absolutely no idea where you’re going yet willing to go beyond comfort to experience the ‘new’. That's the Plan A.

Track Name: Plan A
From webpages to photographs
To scribbled maps and diagrams
It came to me, like a parcel from overseas
Sending me gone like paper planes, well look up now there I go
Over hills and so far away
Bet ya never realised, caught up in schedules and meetings
Since you, didn’t think to call me when I took off or landed
I think about that more now when I should be
Looking out at scenery and the beauty of greenery
And how to make a move, my way through the music industry
To long nights, the sweat, dirt, to whatever comes next first
Livin’ life on a plan A

CHORUS:
I'm sitting in the back seat
So take me where I gotta be
Getting by with oh so little
Rolling past a city without the glamour and the spotlight
Oh I’m playing where I can 24/7
I guess I’m used to it, used to it so much it don’t matter
Multiple occasions of losing friends to lovers oh!
Got nothin’ on me but a plan A, A
Ain't nada but a plan A, A, A, A
So what’s it to ya if I got
Nada but a plan A

Today, took time out, out of playing on streets
To be stuck inside a studio
And there I found, releasing music’s harder being so analytical
And above all, obsessive in perfection and that said
I’m sorry for the wait that it’s taken
Prefer to put out into the real world what I’m proud of
Music’s more than just a hobby I’m not gonna be a cheap cover copy
But an honest singer-songwriter
I gain satisfaction by not going to uni
Can’t you see mama this is a heart decision
From in my head onto paper, pop filter to global speakers
Look at who’s the busybody, yeah
And for those who don’t believe in me, I don’t need you consistently
Feeding me what I already know
I’ll leave here as, A A anonymous, come back a name on my home turf
That’s the plan A

(CHORUS)

Nada, nada, nada but a plan A
Nada, nada, nada but a plan A
So put it ‘re if you know what I’m sayin’, Eh!
Put it ‘re if you know what I’m sayin’ (x3)
Oh!

(CHORUS)
It's nada but a plan A
Can't you see, can't you see
It's nada but a plan A
Nada but a plan A
So remember that yeah!
'Cause nothing else matters yo!
Nada but a plan A
Track Name: Thinking Too Far
Somebody give me a piece of thread and a needle
Somebody is gonna see me through, better off on the other side

Mountain ranges span across the land where I must go
Into no-mans land who knows when I’ll be back again
With a carry on backpack, searching for more in life isn’t easy
It’s a job for some while the rest of us point to the sky as if to say

CHORUS:
Where do I go, nobody knows
Not even a dream will tell me
No dream will tell me
Where do I go, nobody’s home
I needa stop myself
From thinking too far

Everybody gets a chance to somehow rise above
In the heat of the moment, crying out loud in desperation
But there’s no one out here to save me now, save me now
I’m talkin’ ‘bout wheels of fate & if I’ll ever see the light of day

(CHORUS)

Where do I go, nobody knows
Where do I go, nobody knows
Where do I go, nobody knows
Where do I go, nobody knows

Where do I go, nobody knows
I needa stop myself from thinking too far
Where do I go, nobody knows
‘Cause you've done this a thousand times
Yeah yeah 'cause you've done this a thousand times

Where do I go, nobody knows
Where do I go, nobody knows
Where do I go, nobody knows
Where do I go, nobody knows, no (x2)
Where do I go, nobody knows
Track Name: You Love Her, Not Me
Honestly,
Every time that you touch me it's just casually 

Something that you do that makes every girl you know
Fall in love with you


Everyday,
I wake up and wonder how you do it so perfectly
It must be the kindness in your eyes and heart
And people like that are hard to find



CHORUS:
But I know,
You love her, not me

You love her, not me, yeah
You love her, not me
So why do you, why do you, why do you care now?
You love her, not me

You love her, not me
, yeah
You love her, not me

Well how many times have you told me now?

So I've heard,
You're moving along quite well together and 

How your days are complete only when she's around you

But how come I am the one you run to


Oh please talk to me,
I think you're getting yourself confused 

At times like these, you tell me I mean the world to you,
But I'm so sure you tell her the same thing



(CHORUS

)
Oh Oh Oh Oh (x2)

So take a step back and realise what you do

And take a step back,
Maybe what you've been taught to say ain't what you feel inside

Take a step back, to think it through

And take a step back,
Why can't you see that she's the one you're really into

Because I can see



But you love her, not me
'Cause you love her, not me
Oh Oh Oh Oh (x4)

(CHORUS

)
Oh Oh Oh Oh (x5)
Track Name: Wondering
This sound, I know too well
We’ve giving up
So take the last stand
And bleed out
This love, I remember so well
Now when we wake, alone in our beds
We’re not the same
But

CHORUS:
We keep wondering
We keep wondering
For release, hopeful
For salvation

This space, I don’t know too well
Feeling ashamed for calling your name now the plug’s been pulled
And this time, I remember those signs
That point to 'trying', not once I tried
I guess this must die
But,

(CHORUS)
For salvation
Oh oh oh (x2)

We are searching through the rubble of a broken mess
We are searching through the rubble of a broken mess (x3)
Ooo we are!
So keep wondering you know, yeah you know
Neither want to end, neither want to be alone
So here we are, standing still with so much to loose
So is there hope, left, a little left for us? (x3)
So is there hope, left, oh a little left for us
Left for us
Left for us

CHORUS:
So let’s keep wondering
So let’s keep wondering
For release, hopeful for salvation

I'm just wondering
Track Name: Safe To Come Home
A long night, take the train ride home
When the city lights only make you feel small
The extension of my hand tells you I am waiting, waiting (yeah, yeah)
I feel you’re on the edge, on the verge of running, running (yeah, yeah)

CHORUS:
It is safe to come home (Ooh hoo)
We can go dancing round
I’ll be careful with where I step, where I step
Before we loose the last thread
Ah ah ah ah ah
Ooo
Ah ah ah ah ah

I’m scared to think, now getting it off my chest
When all you know, love can change that around
The temptation to find out if you’re really coming, coming (yeah, yeah)
It bring me to the core and into what I’m saying, saying (yeah, yeah)

(CHORUS)

Though I may not be the brightest star you’ve laid your eyes upon
Now I wait to hear the words that speak the truth of mind
And whatever that may be
Will you forget me?
Don’t let this drag out for long
When you’re ready, just know for sure

CHORUS:
It is safe to come home
We can go dancing around, yeah
Before I loose the last thread
Ah ah ah ah ah
Ooo
Ah ah ah ah ah
Before I loose the last thread now
Ah ah ah ah ah
Ooo
Ah ah ah ah ah
Before I loose the last thread now

Before, before, I loose the last thread
Before, before I loose the last thread
Before, before, I loose the last thread now
Track Name: New
A new year, hey
A new space to grow
Seems like, hey
We are breaking through the ice this time
And I can sense the urge to run
Free at last

A few years, hey
To learn that we’ve got
One love, hey
It has found a better light
And everything is going right
Such clarity

CHORUS:
I see it all new
I see it all new
I like where this is going
I like where we are headed
Oh I see it all new
Yeah I see it, I see it, I see it, I see it all new

New York, hey
Aim for the stars
Right now, hey
We are flying gaining altitude
Believe we’re gonna make it through
Just wait and see

(CHORUS)

We're taking out the old
It’s better the feeling when you know it
Burns brighter and eyes grow wider
Surprised and inspired when you see it now (x2)

(CHORUS)
