NEIL BRUNTON LYRICS

APPLES ON A LILAC TREE

A bird that flies beyond the sun, a feather floating down. An ice cream castle in the sky, a song without a sound. A beating heart that once was still, a rollercoaster with no thrill.

A field of greener grass, beyond the wall you see, so tell me is it sweeter? Is it where you want to be? So go ahead and find the one that loves you just like me. For when you do there will be apples on the lilac tree. 

A swirling plume of smoke without a fire upon the shore. A child that tastes the sweetest treat and doesn't ask for more. A sunny day that pours with rain. A broken heart that feels no pain.

GABRIELLA

Gabriella Butterfly, her silken colours flutter by the world. Gabriella Butterfly, a brightly coloured beauty but her sound is never heard. And by the caterpillars gazing on her beauty from the ground, she was mocked. For Gabriella walked among the caterpillars once, now she does not. 

Let her fly, let her take the colours high, let her dance, let her dance upon the breeze. Let her sing, through the colours on her wing. Let her be, be the butterfly the caterpillars hope that they might be. 

They see the butterfly, a vision of such wonder they are clouded by their thoughts. Gabriella butterfly, a tissue paper fairy with no glory to be sought. As Gabriella flutters through the branches of the trees she looks below. As the caterpillars changing into who they long to be, just as she has always known. 

Let her fly, let her take the colours high, let her dance, let her dance upon the breeze. Let her sing, through the colours on her wing, Let her be, be the butterfly the caterpillars hope that they might be. Like Gabriella, now they're free.

LOST

On the sunniest of days you cannot feel the rays that burn upon your back and you can only feel the pain. Searing like a burning knife that cuts through all the strain. He asked what is this pain? I said its one I never want to feel again. It's you.

I'm lost within this game, I've thrown the dice, Ive dropped the ball. I need to start again. Will you help me if I ask you? Would you help me make things fair?

In the dewy morning haze when dampness fills the air & winters neither here or there. My heart it feels the same. Encompassed by a love. Oh how I wish didn't care. He said how are you now? I said I'm fine but in my head I know I'm lost somehow.

Will you help me if I ask you? Would you help me start again? The life I knew before you seemed so simple and so plain. You lit the match that sparked the flame & helped me feel the fire again. So lets start this game.

On the frostiest of days when a glittered shawl covers the ground & home fires fill the air. I long to see your eyes again & know your smile shines just for me as mine does just the same. He said hows things today? I said I'm doing great, but this lost love won't go away.

THE MAN IN SHOES OF SUEDE & BLUE

They say describe the way it feels, when it hits you. I know there’s nothing quite as real, when it hits you. Sparks coursing through your veins, nothing is ever quite the same. A fire fills your blood, a burning love that slipstreams to your brain.

So get your dancing shoes & join me on the dance floor for this song. It’s our favourite one, you know the words come on let’s sing along. Let’s dance on through. Said the man in shoes of suede and blue to you.                                  

For each & every moment there’s a note, there’s a feeling. For every single artist’s word they wrote, there’s a feeling. Some say it’s love, some say it’s pain. There’s not a single one the same. A heartfelt love song could just be someone else’s song of shame.

So get your dancing shoes & join me on the dance floor for this song. It’s our favourite one, you know the words come on let’s sing along. Let’s dance on through. Said the man in shoes of suede & blue to you.                                  

Now I ask you do you feel it? Do you feel it in your bones? Is there a passion for a song that makes you wanna dance alone?

So get your dancing shoes & join me on the dance floor for this song. It’s our favourite one, you know the words come on let’s sing along. Let’s dance on through. Said the man in shoes of suede & blue to you.
