about

This EP was inspired by my new friend Nirrimi’s blog with her beautiful words and photographs about the birth and life of her daughter Alba. Nirrimi and I both come from the same town in North Queensland. I had heard her name before, as we are both the same age, but our paths never crossed, even though we shared so much, both leaving Townsville quite young to pursue our own artistic passions. She has a knack of inspiring people through her blog- drawing people into her own world so effortlessly. One afternoon she posted one of my tunes on her page and I was so humbled that she liked my stories too. To know that she was letting my melodies be part of her soundtrack was so special. This series of songs is a gift to Alba, Nirrimi & Matt.

I hope Alba’s Lullabies help you dream, wherever you are in the world.
ps. Happy Birthday alba, little lady light

Track Name: Changing Circles
The moon is a circle that hangs in the sky, Watches my darling when she shuts her eyes, The moon is a circle she changes each night we’re changing my darling when we shut our eyes

The moon’s just a circle she hangs in the sky She watches us dreamin’, when we shut our eyes The moon is a circle she changes each night We’re changing my darling, when we sleep at night
Track Name: Alba's Lullaby
Cradled in thin arms lies a small golden glow, Bright eyes that gaze upon the great mountain snow, Cradled in fabric soft lies the little arms that reach, For things that lovers dream of - sunlight across the sea.

Mamma’s feet will walk with her child with crimson hair Her lover’s hand, he’s holding on caught in her moonlit stare Daddy’s singing slow to a child with heavy eyes Tiny hands are curled up softly by her sides
Her smile makes him weak and her gaze makes him strong tiny crimson girl this is your dreaming song
Track Name: Dreyma
Ég sakna þín elska Ég sá þig, ég var bara að dreyma
I miss you love, I saw you, I was just dreaming
Track Name: Wild Things & Lost Boys
I want to go where the wild things are. The vines are growing in my room, adventure it fills my heart. In a boat we’ll sail away, To where the wild things play.

Little lost boy he sits there alone Watches the branches; the trees grow tall Wendy comes and takes him home

In a boat we’ll sail away, to where the wild things play.
Track Name: The Ballad of the Owl
There once was an owl with large brown eyes, Grey speckled feathers, he travelled the skies, Lived in a crook of an old alm tree, Eating earthworms and beetles, alone in the leaves

But winter it crept and the owl felt alone, Longed for a lover in his little green home, Rustled his feathers and sat through the night, Heart always searching for someone to share the skies with him...

One summer her met her an old of brown hue, Bright eyed adventure, made him feel new, The alm tree now theirs, hearts beat in their chests, “This is a home of love” he said.
Track Name: Light Tower for my Moonflower
I bought a lantern and I put it on my front porch
So you could sail to me,
And the light it would flicker, your eyes catch the glimmer
Of the lighthouse where I will be

Old photographs capture the light,
We searched for a glow we could keep.
With two tiny eyes, blue like the skies, or the waves,
the waves of the sea.

I found a star and I put it in the night sky,
so I could show it to you.
And the light it would flicker, your eyes catch the glimmer
Of the lighthouse I made for you.

Old photographs capture the light,
We searched for a glow we can keep.
With two tiny eyes, blue like the skies,
Or the waves, the waves of the sea.

There’s a lighthouse up in the sky...
May it always be your guide.
