Ash Kirwan I think Phil has a great philosophy on life and living a simplistic life free from the clutter of modern overload. His music reflects that contentment.

One day when all is done I'll take you out of here to see the sun You'll see valleys that run When you are far away beneath the sun You'll feel endless blue sea Spirits will rise as at last you go free You'll see golden white sand I'll take you out of this unpleasant land Sunshine, Sunshine I'll take you to Lausanne When you are far away beneath the sun You'll feel excitement and fun when you are far away beneath the sun You'll feel endless blue sea Spirits will rise as at last you go free You'll see golden white sand I'll take you out of this unpleasant land Sunshine, Sunshine

Hold my hand And look forever forward Understand that you will be rewarded The lifetime of grey skies that once loomed has gone away Everything seems brighter now here comes the brand new day Life is precious my friend Make the most of every day Treasure your time Life is precious my friend Take the time to ease your mind Do not cry turn sorrow into laughter All will be fine and happy ever after The lifetime of grey skies that once loomed has gone away Everything seems brighter now here comes the brand new day Life is precious my friend Make the most of every day Treasure your time Life is precious my friend Take the time to ease your mind

Won't you see the morning light At first sight with all it's energy and warmth It will lead you too. A place deep within your heart A brand new start For life has opened up it's doors It caresses you Lift your head and feel the blessing Of morning light That shines for you each day And so realise your dreams The sunlight gleams Filling your soul with love and hope Bless the morning light Won't you see the morning light awake the night with all it's brilliance and strength it will lead you too Lift your head and feel the blessing Of morning light That shines for you each day And so realise your dreams The sunlight gleams Filling your soul with love and hope And you'll feel the transformation within your heart Yes you'll feel the transformation within your heart Won't you see the morning light at first sight in all it's brilliance and strength It will lead you to A place deep within your heart A brand new start For life has opened up it's doors It caresses you Lift your head and feel the blessing Of morning light That shines for you each day And so realise your dreams The sunlight gleams Filling your heart with love and hope Bless the morning light

Winter's gone and springtime's here it's time to spread some cheer Nights spent by the fireside gone for another year You don't seem so happy though You seem quite upset summer nights not long to go But how can you forget? Don't suppress your love this time Don't suppress your love Your need to love is not a crime Don't suppress your love Wintertime the elements can be most unkind Trouble finding point of view Trouble with your mind You don't seem so happy though You seem quite upset summer nights not long to go But how can you forget? Don't suppress your love this time Don't suppress your love Your need to love is not a crime Don't suppress your love Oh baby we can work it out Stay with me here in the present now Oh baby we can work it out Stay with me here in the present now

Oh the sun The gentle warm sun Sets slowly, so slowly on she Feel the sun The gentle warm sun That slowly sets slowly on she The sun sets on Lausanne The sun sets on Lausanne

You, you make it easy for me You offer some clarity And you make everything seem better And though I am no quitter You make it easy for me And you, you are the sun in my sky You offer natural high And you make everything seem better And though I am no quitter You make it easy for me And when the sun turns out his light, only then will we say goodnight For you, you make it easy for me And you make everything right You make it easy for me And you, you make it all seem worthwhile And you make everyone smile And you make everything seem better And though I am no quitter You make it easy for me And when the sun turns out his light, only then will we say goodnight For you, you make it easy for me And you make everything right

London, New York, Amsterdam Working out some kind of plan We keep on rolling We keep on rolling Oh won't you keep on rolling Airport, lounges, festivals Stadiums and carnivals We keep on rolling We keep on rolling Oh won't you keep on rolling Travelling and being free Working out philosophy We keep on rolling We keep on rolling Oh won't you keep on rolling Memories and photographs Different roads and different paths We keep on rolling We keep on rolling Oh won't you keep on rolling

Dance with me under the sun Sway with me there's room for everyone Apathy, shake off your apathy And sway with me, under the sun The life has been so very kind So free yourself, relax your mind We'll dance alone our spirits high Beneath the effervescent sky And dance with me under the sun Sway with me there's room for everyone Dance with me, Sway with me, Move with me, Dance with me The life has been so very kind So free yourself, relax your mind We'll dance alone our spirits high Beneath the effervescent sky And dance with me under the sun Sway with me there's room for everyone Destiny you are my destiny Sway with me under the sun

Lighthouse 03:18
Won't you come away with me tonight Here in this lighthouse by the sea We can drift away alone tonight Forget all your troubles and go free And drift away though darling won't you stay? Here in this lighthouse by the sea Cape Leeuwin awash with open light Fireworks illuminate the sea Waves they crash into the shores tonight Windswept and frenetic as can be And drift away though darling won't you stay? Here in this lighthouse by the sea

Come to me in dreams tonight By the distant shores Stay with me in dreams tonight Far away in dreams tonight Comfort me in dreams tonight By the distant shores Endless skies in dreams tonight Mesmerise in dreams tonight Dream together Dream forever Light up my dreams tonight By the distant shores Serenade in dreams tonight In the shade of dreams tonight Follow me in dreams tonight By the distant shores Endless skies in dreams tonight Mesmerise in dreams tonight Dream together Dream forever

What's going on inside your head today? Did you think that you could close your eyes and make it go away? That Beatles song that you once sung, those same four chords you always strum, still light these golden streets. What's going on inside your head today? Did you think that you could take a drink and make it go away? That Beatles song that you once sung Those same four chords you always strum Still light these golden streets These Golden Streets remain unscathed Through it all These Golden Streets remain unscathed Through it all What's going on inside your head today? Did you think that you could turn around and make it go away? That Beatles song that you once sung Those same four chords you always strum Still light these golden streets These Golden Streets remain unscathed Through it all These Golden Streets remain unscathed Through it all

Living today can get you down If your not awake to trouble around But in spite of so much pain Faith, Love and hope remain Heart will never die Just keep on searching, you'll find the truth Heart will never die, never die Deep, colour grey on a river wide But I'll make my way to the other side And I hope that you can see We get to choose our destiny Heart will never die Just keep on searching, you'll find the truth Heart will never die, never die And there's a reason that your living And a reason to be giving And the reason that you're living is the beat of the heart will never die Just keep on searching, you'll find the truth Heart will never die Never die

One day when all is done You'll look back think of the sun Remembering it shone for you Forgetting that it still can do And so you hid away in the darkness everyday My friend that was no way to be so be the change you want to see And if you'd look at the world from your window You'll see there's light on the hill as the sun glows You will see the sun You will feel the sun And should darkness come Remember the sun All the lies they told Promises of Fields of Gold But everything you had you lost The truth that came at such a cost And if you'd look at the world from your window You'll see there's light on the hill as the sun glows You will see the sun You will feel the sun And should darkness come Remember the sun The change has come live the sunshine The change has come live the sunshine You will see the sun Remember the sun

How I've missed this beauty Out here far from it all With fields of dreams and the countryside air We can have it all Wake up to country sunrise Skyline turns to gold And blackbirds will sing as the children they play And paradise unfolds Oh! Country Sunrise Oh! Country Sunrise! Long walk's through the valley's Feel the gentle breeze Our time will stand still, we'll be happy and free We'll live a life of ease Panoramic Pleasures Sweet serenity Our spirits will rise Like the warm morning sun At last we will be free Oh! Country Sunrise Oh! Country Sunrise So let's grow old together Out here far from it all With fields of dreams and the countryside air We can have it all

Close your tired eyes there's not a thing left to say Hold your head up high for you did everything your way Now the time has come as the hummingbird she sings Gaze into the sun for now a new journey begins For in the morning you shall fly Above the melancholy skies don''t be afraid For you did everything true High above the sea where the angels they play Set your spirit free and I say thankyou for the days For in the morning you shall fly above the melancholy skies Don't be afraid for you did everything true
17.
The softly spoken girl from afar She takes me to were all is free Taking my hand, she leads me through lands To the garden of serenity And in the end what it comes to my friend There's a place that the eye can not see When you know love out wide and above There's a garden of serenity Sunshine over the valleys Sunshine from up above Sunshine cascading down Sunshine when you know love

about

Hello friends,
I recorded these songs between 2010 and 2014.
In many ways, this album represents phase two of my musical journey, having released my first album 'Follow the Sun' in December 2007.

The album was produced by musical journeyman Tom Thorpe at Bonsai Recording studios in Duncraig with significant input from keyboard and songwriting expert Trevor Gibson.

Best Regards
Phil
