Have been away from ccM for a little while (for me anyway) sharpening my songwriting and working on a whole heap of new songs.

Taking a break, I heard Heiko’s and Mykle’s lovely tracks and stems and it all happened rather quickly.
Played along with the original piano, added the drums and grunged up the original acoustic guitar.

Here’s the lyrics, pella up shortly..

“The Painter”

I heard you may be coming back
for good?
By chance I’m open
weighted down
cry if I could

Cause I built myself around your love
insecure I rise above
these broken lines
that lead my way
And I’ve painted outside many times
coloured way beyond them lines
‘till everything,
everything just fades

I have told myself too many times
too much believed it all the time
Should be easier
if I let it be..
But them sleeping dogs they never lie
they lay there with one open eye
Know everything,
everything they see..

Cause I built myself around your love
insecure I rise above
these broken lines
that lead my way
‘cause I’ve painted outside many times
and coloured way beyond them lines
Hope everything
everything’s ok?

I breathe slowly
knock upon your door
wind up the steps
an open door
to emptyness
I can feel
and our books are taken from their shelves
every trace of you and of ourselves
is memory
chained to my wheel

Cause we built our world around a love
insecure to rise above
these broken lines
that lead our way
And we’ve painted outside many times
and coloured way beyond them lines
now everything
will stay the same …

repeat chorus then fade
