Nine Stones Close Lyrics

The lyrics for all tracks from the album One Eye On The Sunrise are available here, we hope you enjoy them and that they add to your enjoyment of the album. Alongside each lyric is a piece of artwork which was inspired by the lyric and music provided to Antonio. Lyrics are a very personal thing, they are written from the heart, I have refrained from explaining them here as I prefer people to make their own interpretation of their meaning.

At a later date the lyrics for the Traces and St Lo albums will also be added here. - Adrian


 

A Secret

(Lyrics: Adrian Jones & Marc Atkinson)

I told you a secret
Wrap it up and keep it
Then swallow it whole

I told you I never meant it
That I never really felt it
Now you can't let go

Stay where I can see you
Right before my eyes
Stay where I can see you
Tell me all of your lies

I told you that some day
The secret will find a way
To eat at your soul

I told you it’s all true
I will be thinking of you
As it swallows you whole

Stay where I can see you
Right before my eyes
Stay where I can see you
Tell me all of your lies

So lonely now…


One Eye On The Sunrise

(Lyrics: Adrian Jones)

When night comes down and darkness falls
my demons come alive
hold me tightly
while this feeling subsides

I dream
with one eye on the sunrise
eyes wide
one eye on the sunrise

sunrise
sunrise

slip(ping) back into a dream
he's there again
on the edge of sleep and fear
watching over me
and waiting for me

and I dream
with one eye on the sunrise
Lying here
one eye on the sunrise
one eye on the sunrise

sunrise
sunrise

one eye
Sunrise

reflections of my face
rip and curl embrace
echoes of a long gone
day

somehow he is there
i'm suddenly aware
ice cold and dark
forever

never ending theme
blue and green
a wall of all things
ending

will I see you there?
will I even care?
swallowed by the sea
will I still be me?

one eye
one eye on the sunrise

one eye
one eye on the sunrise

What was that?
touch it
feel it
dig a hole in it
scratch away the pain
dig and dig again
falling insane
beating fast
shallow
stars and spinning
pacing
gasping and whimpering
hypnotic feeling
screaming
tears
fear
exhaustion
sleep
repeat

sunrise
one eye on the sunrise.


Eos

(Lyrics: Adrian Jones)

...and strands of light
pull us toward the dawn
hopes and fears entwined
In that moment
...and all is in focus now
as the light fills our eyes
and washes our souls
In the sunrise


The Weight

(Lyrics: Adrian Jones)

light dances on water
as another day dies
i lie here in the stillness
of the night
I wait for the sunrise
as I watch you sleep
I take your hand
and dare to dream

breathe again
see it glisten
feel it shine
as it all slows down
it can spin you around
too fast, too far
and you won't know
how far you came
or how far you'll have to go
you only know
the weight

(the weight of love)

two souls in the darkness
held together by light
we lie here together
hands held tight
we wait for the sunrise
as the world spins around
as we speed toward dawn
without a sound

breathe again
feel and listen
to slowing time
as it pulls you down
you can lose your ground
too far, too fast
and you won't know
how far you came
or how far you'll have to go
you only know
the weight

(the weight of love)

..and as strands of light
pull us from our dreams
we understand
the weight
the weight of love

The weight
The weight of love
when we hold it in our hands
we'll understand
the weight of love
the weight
of love

light dances on water
in a new sunrise
I lie here in the light
of the dawn
The dream is over
but the feeling still remains
the weight
the weight of love


The Distance

(Lyrics: Adrian Jones)

Scars
fresh blood again
a reminder
another stain
scratching
I feel no pain
on we go
just another day

staring into space
hearing but not listening
I feel the distance
between us grow....

static
just noise again
a replaying
of anothers pain
scratching
I feel no shame
don't want to know
I lose my way

staring into space
hearing but not listening
I feel the distance
between us grow

falling ... falling down
spinning round .... around
drifting down ... down down
without a sound

Overwhelmed
the shadows call
swallowing the light
as I fall
into me
into me


Frozen Moment

(Lyrics: Adrian Jones)

something lost
on the way to here
not sure what it was
call it my affinity
something vital,
real and true
sometimes I see it
through the leaves
when the wind blows
and colours bleed
with sun and rain
the memory returns
a fleeting moment
a feeling of home
then its gone again
something divine
concealed from view
then lost again
for another day
just a moment

a frozen moment

living
in black and white
dreaming in grey
how did it come to this
I can't feel it anymore, can't feel it anymore
like someone flicked a switch inside
now I can't see
what I need to be

dreaming
in black and white
and living in grey
I can't feel what I need to feel
how did I become this way?
fade to grey, fade away ...
it felt like home

just dust and insignificance
nothing more than this
lost in our own magnificence
we go on, we go on ... like this
like this ..

A frozen moment

and now I wonder
what brought me here?
to this moment in time
here and now
such distance
behind me now
the unknown ahead
standing on a precipice
in the light
in the moment
eyes wide
contemplate eternity
moving too fast
grasping for branches
clutching at straws
as everything slows
this is where I am
standing here alone
in the moment
in the moment

A frozen moment

living
in black and white
dreaming in grey
how did it come to this
I can't feel it anymore, can't feel it anymore
like someone flicked a switch inside
now I can't see
what I need to see

dreaming
in black and white
and living in grey
i can't feel what I need to feel, need to feel
how did I become this way?
fade to grey, fade away ...
it felt like home

just dust and insignificance
nothing more than this
lost in our own magnificence
we go on, we go on ... like this
like this ..

A frozen
moment
A moment
frozen

I'm in the moment
the moment
the moment
