This album tells my story about the rough weather I had to sail through on the merciless oceans of life.

released June 1, 2013

All tracks are written(except where noted), played, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Martin van de Vrugt at the Ragged Mountain Studio, Deventer, the Netherlands between November 2012 and March 2013 with the kind help of Jessica Kilroy (on track # 3, 5, 6, 8 and 11) and The Highland Regiment Pipes (on track # 9). Thanks for that guys!
This album is dedicated to all the kind people who were with me through all the ups and downs of life the last few years especially my wife Marit who was there all the time while I failed to tell her many times how much I love and need her.

Track Name: End of the Game
It's a cold and gray morning
I can't see the vine through the rain
Yesterday gave me no warning
that today could be the end of the game
When I awoke I thought that I knew you
but now the light in your eyes has turned strange
I can't see where you're going to
and now you are way out of range
Is it me who is mainly the asshole?
Is it me who's thickheaded and blind?
I can't play any leading role
I only should always be kind
I can still see the clouds come in faster
It stirres up the pain in my heart
Tomorrow things will be better
but I've been saying this right from the start
It's a cold and gray morning
I can't see the vine through the rain
Yesterday gave me no warning
that today could be the end of the game
that today could be the end of the game
that today could be the end of ...

Track Name: Fall from Grace
I can't believe you show me your tormented face
'cause it's you and you alone
who made this home
an awful place
I always gave my best
and tried to make it last
now we're constantly in ruin
Why don't you see what you are doing
Fall from grace
I mean
flat on it's face
And all we ever wanted
and all we thought important
it's fallin' down again
Fallin down again
Flat on it's face
What a disgrace
You live here like a star
but who do you think that you are
use me as you servent
behave like a serpent
Fall from grace
I mean
flat on it's face
And all we ever wanted
and all we thought important
it's fallin' down again
Fallin'down again
Fallin'
and again
and again
and again ...
Fall from grace
I mean
flat on it's face
And all we ever wanted
and all we thought important
it's fallin' down again
Fallin'down again
Fallin'
flat on it's face
What a disgrace
again

Track Name: If i die Tonight
Found my life caved in
My head was in a spin
Just like my heart
I’ve always tried to see the light
Picture things from every side
Every part
I never had a second chance
My whole life was in your hands
Right from the start
So if I die tonight
It will be because of my
Broken heart
I can’t find you anymore
I’ve been opening all doors
For so long
I can’t find you anymore
I’ve been opening all doors
For so long
I can’t find you anymore
I’ve been trying all these damn damn doors
For so long
It all makes me feel so sad
It’s all way over my head
and it feels so wrong
No-one’s with me in this thing
However this bird will sing
His own song
All these songs
All these songs
All these songs
So if I die tonight
if I die tonight
if I die tonight
if I die tonight
if I die tonight
It will be because of my
Broken heart

Track Name: No Summer
Rains keep pounding
Like endlessly
You can’t call this a summer
And that aint what it means to me
We were doing fine we thought
All seemed well
Sure we’ve seen some hard times
But now we face hell
Crucial moments
Passin’ by
Too short to remember
Too fast for the naked eye
What made you do this
It doesn’t make any sence
We gave everything to help you
Now it’s out of our hands
Precious moments
Passin’ by
Too short to remember
Too fast for the naked eye
Still the rains keep pounding down pounding down
Like endlessly
I won’t call this a summer
'cause that aint what it means to me

Track Name: Crack in my Heart
You know I considered leaving
But I couldn’t figure out where to go
And now when-ever I am walkin’
The floor moves while I stand still
How can I get grip on the situation?
Far too many told me
That sometimes life is hard
While I just need some-one to hold me
And mend the crack in my heart
How can I get grip on the situation?
I never lied about my feelings
Though I might have kept some things untold
And now we’re burning up the real thing
I don’t know what to say at all
How can I get grip on the situation?

Track Name: The sun always Travels
am a tree
I won't go anywhere
Firmly rooted in this soil
I can only bend and wave with the winds
and try just try to put some shadows on the ground
You're a spirit
No one knows where you are
No one knows what drives your heart
truth lingers in twilight
you just might
you just might live between the stars
Hey ho Hey ho
you know the sun
you know the sun always travels
I won't ask you to stay here
There's nothing good in this wood
just float among my branches
no one knows
no one knows if you would
Hey ho Hey ho
you know the sun
you know the sun always travels West

Track Name: Loving Heart
Maybe I'm gone but I always will be here
Always present just to wipe away a tear
Give me your heart and I'll lend you just an ear
Maybe I'm gone but I always will be here
Talk about love and I will be on the run
'Cause my heart is more like a smokin' gun
I'll nab yours and I'll place it in the sun
But talk about love and I will be on the run
I know my dear sometimes life is hard
You could even wish it would have never started
But then again you wouldn't have found this lovin' heart
You know my dear life has to be hard
So goddamn hard
Maybe I'm gone but I always will be here
Maybe I'm gone but I always will be here
Lend me your heart and I'll give you all my ear
Maybe I'm gone but I always will be here
Always will be here
Always will be here

Track Name: Ready to be Moved
Can you feel the winds of change
After all these troubled years
Roaming thru this hostile world
Masking your tears
Everything twisted and curled
Nasty and dreadfully strange
Well it’s alright now
It’s alright now
I see myself in you
You won’t be left alone
It’s alright now
It’s alright now
after all you went thru you deserve
an open door
Cast these stones upon your soul
as far away as you can
ruthless without a doubt
make yourself a better plan
Even if it’s hard to get out
never give up on you goal
Well it’s alright now
I called you twice now
I see myself in you
You won’t be left alone
It’s alright now
It’s alright now
after all you went thru you deserve
that it’s alright now
and it’s alright now
after all you went thru you deserve
an open door
can you feel that
all what’s left is
ready to be
moved to where
everything is
nothing

Track Name: The water is Wide
The water is wide I can't cross over
Neither do I have wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
My love and I we both shall row
There is a ship she sails the seas
She's loaded deep as deep can be
but not as deep as this love I'm in
I know not how to sink or swim
I've seen the waters I've seen the waves
I've sailed the seas rain in my face
Now I'm on a shore not sure what's in store
No wind no rain no waves no more
Love is gentle and love is kind
The sweetest flower when first it blooms
But love grows old and waxes cold
and fades away like summers do
Build me that boat that can carry two
My love and I we both shall row
Row row row row row the boat
My love and I we both shall row
Row row row row row the boat

Track Name: Ragged Mountain
I've been sailin' wild waters
with unreefed sails and colored flag
to see the moon rise on Ragged Mountain
and the stars make my day
I've been ridin' endless highways
fueled up
hands on the wheel
to see the river roll down the mountain
and my tears flow to the sea
Look me in the eyes girl
can you still see the unbound man I used to be?
Now the rain pounds on the windshield
and there aint nothing no more to see
Well we've got kids
They're doing well
We have a house
Food on the shelf
Part of my heart stayed on Ragged Mountain
and sometimes my mind flows to the sea
I've been sailin' wild waters
with unreefed sails and colored flag
to see the moon rise on Ragged Mountain
and the stars make my day
Make my day

Track Name: Friends like You
Friends like you
Far and few
Ringin' true
Stick like glue
make me wanna hitch a ride over a thousand miles
just to listen to that two buck chime
We don't need a dime
All these riches we find
Good old friend of mine
Friends like you
Sweet and true
Touch my heart
Stick like glue
I will play that two buck chime
as long as you like
It won't take a single dime
All these riches we find
Good old friend of mine
Friends like you
Far and few
Ringin' true
Stick like glue
make me wanna hitch a ride over a thousand miles
just to listen to that two buck chime
We don't even need a dime
All these riches we find
Good old friend of mine
We don't even need a dime
These riches we find
Good old friend of mine
