So, at the moment I am completing my MF collection one brick at a time. I am happy to witness the ongoing career of the hard-working, talented n charismatic musician he is. I chose this album for several of my favourite tracks can be found here, e.g. fisherman's son, your quiet place, all of me key...
Check out his homebound concerts during the weekend (look at his HP) , you wont be disappointed by the different orchestration and his spontaneous reactions proving him a head-to-toe artist. 10/10! Favorite track: Your Quiet Place.

i can't remember falling apart quite like this seems the wind was taken from me, before i could gather up my fists with an empty click i noticed that my blood was running free oh angel won't be rescuing me even when the gun went off and i turned around to see where the killer had been standing, my baby looked at me in a thousand things i've seen this was the one i won't believe oh angel won't be rescuing me she was a miracle to see and she loved me, she loved me when it rained down yukon street she loved me, she loved me she had a measure of soul, you rarely see and a heart that understood the everything about me i leaned against a shady tree and crumpled to a seat started praying to someone who might have long abandoned me when the sun arose the next day, it found me shaking like a leaf oh angel won't be rescuing me she was a miracle to see and she loved me, she loved me when it rained down yukon street she loved me, she loved me she had a measure of soul, you rarely see and a heart that understood the everything about me staring in the firelights, the orange and the gold i can smile upon the embers, the twinkle of the hope in the glow of things accomplished by the man i lived to be oh my angel won't come rescuing me she was a miracle to see and she loved me, she loved me when it rained down yukon street she loved me, she loved me she had a measure of soul, you rarely see and a heart that understood the everything about me

Blow By Blow 03:10
lifetimes and memories ago days when we were the wandering souls placing bets to never going home running away from the things we know rabbit feet and bags of lucky strokes carried along down the living road brought those times an ever-quicker flow easy come just as easy go can't say we were a-wiser then won't give up on the feeling still remember who we were when we bumped through life on the blow by blow another springtime and summer come again to and fro with our faithful friends there you were, a smile upon your face sharing all of the things you know angel love standing in my frame why'd you ever wanna learn my name never felt such a need to grow build a house to hold the things we know can't say we were a-wiser then won't give up on the feeling still remember who we were when we bumped through life on the blow by blow bluest skies, ocean down below looking out from a solid shore jump and shout, 'cause now you know it's true it's this man that's got a hold on you can't say we were a-wiser then won't give up on the feeling still remember who we were when we bumped through life on the blow by blow

up to killybegs and back agayne went the largest of the fleet in the wind and rain they hauled off a load and when they were done did the skipper nod at the fisherman's son up from the docks to the abbey door every troubled soul hear the father's roar faithful, your work has only begun see the hardened eyes of the fisherman's son all the town girls would laugh and sing and wonder about the boy with the sailor's ring braver on the sea there surely was none not a single word from the fisherman's son

Fault Lines 02:43
hello California did i have to make you wait? to divine the door inside my soul suddenly the gold trees mark the turning of my fate along the i-5 lanes to Sacramento one thing for sure is we ain't under Van skies no more the cookie jar fell empty many years ago today how i think of the good people i know as i travel onwards it's with love i can't repay but i'll aim to be the best in show when i find forgiveness i will lay my arms on the floor i believe in karma i'm convinced i'll see my day it's the gospel that i got to know now won't this broken Greyhound make it down to LA so i'll know better where i need to go fault lines say it's too late but my smiling says that this ain't so

take this with you when you go step careful with your little bare toes you make a man of many words wonder what he really knows southern sun that lights your way bring you back to me again

Stations 03:50
headlights pan the lonely windows Paudie's little eyes are closed Momma flipping through the channels stations roll the hours away William drives to the break of day songman singing hallelujah while the living goes on and the river runs through don't the gentle lines fade in the face of what's true waking from his childhood fears Paudie looks across the living years memories float away behind him the colours of his first tattoos Momma's sorry IOU's windbreaker flapping at the harbor while the living goes on and the river runs through don't the gentle lines fade in the face of what's true takes a lifetime of searching inside comes the day you see nothing to hide cry for all the love you find coming through the diner door a face he recognizes from before slowly sits down beside him while the living goes on and the river runs through don't the gentle lines fade in the face of what's true while the living goes on and the river runs through don't the gentle lines fade in the face of what's true

The Hard Way 03:35
thick fog embrace the harbor it's hard to push off from the shore i search the white for answers come floating back on what I know it's never time or distance you can't look back until you go i see these sad reminders and wonder how it heals so slow oh... well you had to learn the hard way oh... well you had to learn the hard way so shifting from the breakers i've felt the counter-currents' flow Vancity's kind reminders i'm hoping some of them will hold oh... well you had to learn the hard way oh... well you had to learn the hard way the end of the spring brought awakening to the soundtrack of ever-changing things and never a note before the work was done did these green eyes take upon the wing to love would i raise up a simple glass bring a strong tide in upon my coast a cool-headed ease when the chorus sings and a gale wind when it matters most hold out your hand for hope

up from the ground, only nature surrounds only infinite wisdom from a blue sky come down i could stand here alone, i could never come home as the birds look upon me for the virtues i'm known but it's only a game, for the love that remains is a wishing well yet to deplete and to manage my hurt, leave it out in the rain where i can't set it up for defeat careful and true, living in thoughts of you there is infinite loving that ignores what is through can a piece of mind grow when it never lets go is this time being wasted, could it be that i know it's the 'never too late', and the 'best that i can' that remove me from the new things i've learned with our love on the stake, it's the wick in my hand that might never be dry enough to burn

Lover CTDHL 02:47
sunlight the colours sweep the shadows from the ground again while I don't know how much hope that I can show.... but this I know that some things didn't go off as planned the handle came off in my hand endings I wish that I could get to some place warm again hold on to everything that's just a little good.... just like I should but some things fall away from view lover cut this dead heart loose
10.
in a time before i played the crying game sound of slamming doors, oh lining up the blame lining up the blame times have come and go though they forever tried to stay had to loose that hold, oh let them get away let them get away what's your plan now that she's gone for good? how would i know do you think you did all that you could? i can hope so so took the longer road went out on the plains crossed mountains of regret, oh walked the walls of shame somehow I heard my name looked up towards the skies followed the fires on the hill rode over the rise, oh stood upon my will stood upon my will don't you think you needed a new start? how would i know will forgiveness come into your heart? i can hope so now hold them to your chest the somethings that just won't change time will fix it best, oh our good hearts still remain our good hearts still remain
11.
call me when you're headed home i'm right here by the phone i've been up in dark and light you won't leave me alone call it our common sense ground control, no defence i feel you all the way from here close your eyes and count to ten 'cause now you hold the all of me key look at you with the all of me key run across the sand to me swinging arms, feeling free beating in a blazing heart how you know how i believe so stop me just to catch my breath for the things we ain't done yet i'm in you as you can see it's all gone to my head and now you hold the all of me key look at you with the all of me key so find her inside your bones the little girl that needs to know what the little boy can see where we next will aim to go so call me on your way back home i'm right here by the phone it feels so great to be your someone never leave me alone and now you hold the all of me key now come and put those gentle hands on me and now you hold the all of me key i said you hold the all of me key
12.
don't the bright green hills rise to us today feels like any word would just get in the way under deep blue skies even gentle rain make the wildest dream smell like a hurricane if you hurt from what you see and your heart just wants to hide you can look around for me in the quiet place inside how the tides can change the way the cycles go when an earthly love wanders from the road as we know these paths to the ocean flow from your sparkling eyes don't the lifelight show if you hurt from what you see and your heart just wants to hide you can look around for me in your quiet place inside give your tender hand to me in your quiet place inside
13.
quiet pull of wine, homely scent of pine when this long road ends read those books of mine, dusty and divine lovers, foes or friends... when this long road ends panels on the door, shoes I always wore when this long road ends sand between my toes, favorite tv shows lovers, foes or friends... when this long road ends fingers through my hair, icy breaths of air when this long road ends warm upon the skin, sun on everything lovers, foes or friends... when this long road ends doors without a lock, lonely wooden dock when this long road ends always feeling heard, melodies and words lovers, foes or friends... when this long road ends
