Home Away from Home

words/music by Matt Ralph (c) 2020

And all across the world

All across the seas

All across the world

You and me

And all across the world

All across the seas

All across the world

You and me

Bali morning at the corner house 

A frangipani falls at my feet 

Such a sweet place to rest 

I’m thinking of you across the seas 

From Amsterdam to the Cypress Hills

Youve taken me with you 

There’s a coaster on my wall 

A little piece from you from Bruges 

And I want to bring you here 

With time to drift and kiss you sweet

I’m thinking of you now 

A smile on your lips across the seas 

And your home away from home 

Lifts you up as you touch down again

And on the streets that you roam 

There’s memories sweet as you breathe them in

And this city that you’ve know 

Welcomes you back just like an old friend

And across an azure sky 

We begin

And the long white beaches roll from the city to the sea

From the shade of the swaying palms across the oceans you reaching to me

And I can hear your spirit high 

From the cafes and the streets

And across  an azure sky 

You and me

From the shady sands of Seminyak

I’m waiting for your day to start

As the shadows track back to back 

And the dust is dancing like golden sparks

From tour buses on crazy streets

You’ve let me see what you see

Through places dark and filled with grief

You’ve trusted you can share with me

You’re a diamond in the northern lights

As you make your way from bed to bed

I wish you days clear and bright

Every time you lay your head

And your home away from home 

lifts you up as you touch down again

And on the streets that you roam there’s memories sweet as you breathe them in

And this city that you’ve know 

It welcomes you back just like an old friend

And across an azure sky 

We begin

And the long white beaches roll 

From the city to the sea

From the shade of the swaying palms across the oceans you reaching to me

And I can hear your spirit high 

From the cafes and the streets

And across  an azure sky 

You and me

And all across the world

And all across the seas

All across the world

You and me

And all across the world

And all across the seas

All across the world

You and me

One Life

words/music Matt Ralph (c)2020

I’m going to see it from your side 

Gonna talk and work things through 

I’m gonna take my time 

To show my love for you 

Through the fields we’ll walk hand-in-hand 

Through the seeds that we’ve sown

In the tenderness of touch

In our togetherness we’ll roam 

Through a world where it’s hard to know 

If it’s a place of right or wrong 

To trust in each moment’s flow 

Take it in before it’s gone 

Where ever we go 

Where ever we follow 

It’s always gonna be our family 

And when it gets dark 

And the light is hard to see 

It’s always gonna be our family 

Rest your eyes my love 

Settle down your racing heart 

I’ll hold you in my arms

Give you strength to make this start

Share with me your dreams 

Tell me what you see

Make my head your talking space 

Share with me your dreams 

I want to meet you at this place 

In the stillness of the sun or the ever-changing seas 

Won’t you show me who you are and tell me what will be 

Where ever we go 

Where ever we travel 

It’s always gonna be our family 

And when it gets dark and the light it’s hard to see

It’s always gonna be our family 

And there’s no way to know where this road that we take leads 

But we’re in the right time at the right place and that’s all we need to believe

There’s only one way in and there’s one way out 

So we best make the most of this life 

There’s only one way in and there’s one way out 

So we best 

So we best make the most of this life 

So we best 

So we best 

So we best make the most of this one life 

There’s only one way in and there’s one way out 

So we best 

So we best make the most of this life 

There’s only one way in and there’s one way out 

So we best 

So we best make the most of this one life
