MY FAVOURITE ONE-NIGHT-STAND (words and music by Steve Austin) If we don’t ever meet again Thankyou for your time and I am glad I gave you mine Tomorrow there are many things better left unplanned But tonight you were my favourite one-night-stand If we don’t ever meet again You won me with your smile and I was yours for just a while Tomorrow I am gone for I am happy travelling on But tonight you were my favourite one-night-stand If we don’t ever meet again Thankyou for your time and I am glad I gave you mine Tomorrow will you think of me this happy travelling man And say tonight I was your favourite one-night-stand Was I your favourite one-night-stand Was I your favourite one-night-stand

RELUCTANT FEET (words and music by Pete White) Well it’s easy when you know I found it so patronizing To put on a show But there’s something to be said About this warm-coloured lighting The ebony glow of your eyes Only eyes can make me notice Make me stumble and I Only I can make this meeting last forever Will you end up with the one you love Will you end up with the one you care about Will you end up with the life you’re scared of Reluctant feet don’t walk alone With the rain against my skin I’m feeling pretty weighted By the places I’ve been But there’s nowhere in between That I can form a shelter Safe in the knowledge that eyes Only eyes can make me notice Make me stumble and I Only I can make this meeting last forever Will you end up with the one you love Will you end up with the one you care about Will you end up with the life you’re scared of Reluctant feet don’t walk alone Will you end up with the one you love Will you end up with the one you care about Will you end up with the life you’re scared of Reluctant feet don’t walk alone Will you end up with the one you love Will you end up with the one you care about Will you end up with the life you’re scared of Reluctant feet don’t walk alone Reluctant feet don’t walk alone Reluctant feet don’t walk alone Reluctant feet don’t walk alone Reluctant feet don’t walk alone

Familiar 03:18
FAMILIAR (words and music Steve Austin) Familiar are your hands But new the places they are taking me How high can we fly Before we reach the top Don’t let it ever stop Don’t let it ever stop Familiar are your lips But new the taste of something heavenly At least for you and me This could be what heaven means Don’t let it ever stop Don’t let it ever stop Familiar are these tears For good will end, that’s how it’s ever been ‘Better to love and lose’ may not be true For you and me Don’t let it ever stop Don’t let it ever stop Please rewind the clock Don’t let it ever stop

Slow Dance 03:34
SLOW DANCE (words and music by Pete White) It all goes back to a twist in time I had my chance to stay or leave And I ventured out on a lonely path With only déjà vu and noise for company And I was given a chance to redeem myself Carve a better life to lead And I worked hard to release myself From all the years of guilt I felt for nasty deeds You got to slow down to make it Take it all in your stride I got to know now That you’re gonna ease the pace Life can be a slow dance,so make it Wearing your scars with pride And I promise to be with you all the way Just give me a chance to hold on Now it seems that all I do is work The paper in my wallet are all receipts And I can’t see any change in sight But tell me tale of hope and I swear I’ll believe You got to slow down to make it Take it all in your stride I got to know now That you’re gonna ease the pace Life can be a slow dance, so make it Wearing your scars with pride And I promise to be with you all the way You got to slow down to make it Take it all in your stride I got to know now That you’re gonna ease the pace Life can be a slow dance, so make it Wearing your scars with pride And I promise to be with you all the way Give me a chance to hold on....

Pillars 02:29
PILLARS (words and music Steve Austin) I see in you colour I see blue, I see bright light I see visions of how It can be I see in you strength I see stone, I see pillars I see high towers Raised to the sky I find in you joy I hear song, I hear music I hear water o’er lock gates At night And I do believe I’m not lost and I feel loved I am of you and you Are of me Now I do believe I’m not lost and I feel loved I am of you and you Are of me

Said Nothing 04:36
SAID NOTHING (words and music by Pete White) If you come and see me knock on my door And ignore the sleep in my eyes It’s all I’ve done since I found these flaws I didn’t know what to say so I just said nothing I see you stood there waiting as I arrive To hand the things you say that you need Why can’t we talk things through when we’re eye to eye We didn’t know what to say so we just said nothing It was a lonely time Waiting out in the road in case you changed your mind It was the only way I didn’t know what to say so I just said nothing I can see you smiling when I sleep But it’s a dream I keep to myself ‘cause when the feeling’s faded we fell apart at the seams We didn’t know what to say so we just said nothing Didn’t know what you wanted Didn’t know what you needed Maybe I did but I fooled myself Didn’t know what you wanted Didn’t know what you needed Maybe I did but I fooled myself

BACK TO YOUR HOMELAND (words and music by Steve Austin) I’ll sing to you a lullaby Of rolling green seas May the birds in the firmament Bring you back to me I’ll sing to you of greater things Than just you and I The clouds in the mighty sky They will watch over you I’ll sing to you a melody As old as these hills That seasons will always change Is how it’s ever been If I could save you I’d save you from yourself You need somebody We all need someone to help us out of here When you’re walking into walls Can’t find the door To take you from this hell Back to your heartland Back to your homeland I’ll sing to you of yesterday And everything we made Our laughter, it chimed above Oh may it ring again I’ll sing to you of days to come And all that may yet be May the birds in these autumn trees Never leave us If I could save you I’d save you from yourself You need somebody We all need someone to help us out of here When you’re walking into walls Can’t find the door To take you from this hell Back to your heartland Back to your homeland Back to your heartland Back to your homeland Back to your homeland I’ll sing to you a lullaby Of rolling green seas May the birds in the sky above Guide you back to me

WALKING WITH GHOSTS (words and music by Steve Austin) At the turning of the page That brings each day Neither you or I Can know what lies in wait While the sky is blue You to me are everything At the turning of the page You came to me A gift unlooked for A kingdom and its keys While the sky is blue You to me are everything At the turning of the page So much can end But in your company I dared to love again While the sky was blue You to me were everything And this night we’ll walk again No I have not forgotten you No I have not forgotten you No I have not forgotten you While the sky was blue You to me were everything And this night we’ll walk again No I have not forgotten you No I have not forgotten you No I have not forgotten you

Another Life 03:39
ANOTHER LIFE (words and music by Steve Austin) I’ve heard of chasing rainbows But none were ever caught Tease you for a moment Let you touch it, taste it Lit by only blue light On another lonely night He knows that you are out there Somewhere And every new horizon From red now unto violet Into the hands of strangers He lays his dreams He loves you He loves you And there’s nothing left for him to do But wait and pray Maybe you will see his face one day and smile If not now in another time and place Or another life And youthful desperation Gives way to resignation Hope is for the foolish They say bitterness it passes And I can mock his dreaming But only by denying The rainbows I have chased And the bitterness I still taste And every new horizon From red now unto violet Into the hands of strangers I lay my dreams I love you I love you And there’s nothing left for me to do But wait and pray Maybe you will see my face one day and smile If not now in another time and place Or another life I love you I love you And there’s nothing left for me to do But wait and pray Maybe you will see my face one day and smile If not now in another time and place Or another life

Walk Away 03:46
WALK AWAY (words and music by Pete White) The day we met you had fire in your eyes At night you slept with a demon by your side Was it me or the weather, I was warm inside And it felt so much better than cold and lonely pride I thought you were the one And you were for me But I couldn’t see the wood through the trees And all I could say is everything will be ok It’s not now Now all I can do is watch you walk away Walk away My shoulders ache most of the time Yeah bodies break even in their prime It wasn’t logical thinking, too blinded by you to see All these tactical warnings from people who cared for me That knew i weren’t to you What you were to me But I couldn’t see the wood through the trees And all I could say is everything will be ok It’s not now Now all I can do is watch you walk away Walk away ....
12.
Shine 02:44
SHINE (words and music Steve Austin) You are here With my eyes shut tight you are now with me In my arms Rest your weary soul in a place of safety You will know You are not alone for I am with you Close your eyes And sleep tonight And all the stars up in the sky Will guard your dreams as they do mine And in the silence and the darkness Breathe with me, synchronise your heartbeat And the sun will surely rise May you rest in peace and shine In each new morning I am here Let your head touch mine and in this moment There is love There is love And all the stars up in the sky Will guard your dreams as they do mine And in the silence and the darkness Breathe with me, synchronise your heartbeat And the sun will surely rise May you rest in peace and shine In each new morning
13.
Open 03:46
OPEN (words and music by Steve Austin) Into my arms Know that you are welcome as you are For we have come so far Our open eyes Can know what lies between what is And what will never be Like the sand In an open hand We are not falling And like a dragonfly We fly free And freely choose to land You don’t have to fight to keep me You know that you are free to leave But my heart, like this hand Is open Beyond these words Lies a reason caught within a rhyme That was another time With open ears We’ll hear a different melody A song for you and me Like the sand In an open hand We are not falling And like a dragonfly We fly free And freely choose to land You don’t have to fight to keep me You know that you are free to leave But my heart, like this hand Is open We are not falling And like a dragonfly We fly free And freely choose to land You don’t have to fight to keep me You know that you are free to leave But my heart and loving arms Are open
14.
Blow 03:58
BLOW (words and music by Steve Austin) Shall I throw it all up in the air and see where it lands All that I held that in truth held me is here in my hands Let it go Let it go So I open my fingers and blow I guess I know what I must do, I’ve been here before When familiar no longer means safe I am one who cries out for more Let it go Let it go So I pick it all like a ball and throw I don’t know where it will land, in river or sea In field or in mountain so high where the sky meets the wild and free So I will go I will go ‘til my ashes are raised to the wind ‘til my ashes are raised to the four winds ‘til my ashes are raised and the wind blows So I throw it all up in the air So I throw it all up in the air So I throw it all up in the air And we’ll see where it lands
15.
A LIFE WITHOUT DREAMS (words and music by Steve Austin) From the tyranny of conscious thought deliver me That I may close my eyes and rest in peace Sail upon an ocean of tranquillity Back into the harbour of my dreams Save me from the wave that sank a thousand ships Let me walk again on solid ground Let me feel the warmth of you beside me Lose myself again and not be found And we’ll make love in a green field And all our sorrows will for a moment disappear And tomorrow knows alone what it will bring But I’ll remember what it was that brought me here I’ll remember you We will walk through twilight woods where silent treachery Lies in wait it catch us if we fall Together we will stand we will not stumble Back into the arms of conscious thought And we’ll make love in a green field And all our sorrows will for a moment disappear And tomorrow knows alone what it will bring But I’ll remember what it was that brought me here I’ll remember you Back into a life without a heartbeat Back into a life without you and me Back into a life not worth the living I won’t go back into a life without dreams I won’t go back into a life without dreams I won’t go back into a life without dreams And we’ll make love in a green field And all our sorrows will for a moment disappear And tomorrow knows alone what it will bring But I’ll remember what it was that brought me here I’ll remember what it was that brought me here I’ll remember what it was that brought me here I’ll remember you are the reason I am here

WISHING ON ANOTHER LUCKY STAR (words and music by JD Souther) Your friends may lie The truth can come from a stranger If I knew why We wouldn’t be left in this danger Leaning out the window of my car I’m wishing on another lucky star Life is long But it’s not made to measure You will go on Through this pain and onto pleasure Wondering how you ever got this far And wishing on another lucky star Life goes on Just as sure as the sky You’re come and gone In the wink of eye You leave your home In the wings of the night You will never die You will never die The world is cold The heart gets torn and battered The one you hold And it can be both dropped and shattered Leaning out the window of my car I’m wishing on another lucky star Life goes on Just as sure as the sky You’re come and gone In the wink of eye You leave your home In the wings of the night You will never die You will never die Your friends may lie The truth can come from a stranger If I knew why We wouldn’t be left in this danger Leaning out the window of my car I’m wishing on another lucky star You know I’m leaning out the window of my car I’m wishing on another lucky star I’m wishing on another lucky star I’m wishing on another lucky star
17.
BETWEEN THE LINES (words and music Steve Austin) If I close my eyes and concentrate hold my breath, screw up my face will I walk on water if I’d just dare or just add more lines to the ones I wear is it just a question of simply faith if I could believe would it start to go my, go my way is it just the twists and turns of fate may as well accept what you cannot change though you try, though you try to fight it yeah If I close my eyes and concentrate hold my breath, screw up my face will I walk on water and dance on air or just add more lines to the ones I wear is it how it is and how it has to be is it how you sell it and if you choose well I don’t choose to buy it tell me can I sing a different tune to what is written or am I bound by note and stave and rhythm yeah If I close my eyes and concentrate hold my breath, screw up my face will I walk on water if I’d just dare or just add more lines to the ones I wear If I close my eyes and concentrate hold my breath, screw up my face will I walk on water and dance on air or just add more lines to the ones I wear If I close my eyes and concentrate hold my breath, screw up my face am I fooling you that I don’t care read between my lines, you’ll find you’re there read between my lines, you’ll find you’re there

Home - LIVE 02:30
Home (words and music by steve austin) in colours ever deep our souls have come to meet in places that I once had only dreamed of on the hill I stood alone I watched you down below like a child who cannot find a home like a child who cannot find a home standing there on high I could not reach the sky your honest eyes won’t hide what you’re disguising but you know when this has gone and I’m left here alone I’m a child who’s far away from home I’m a child so far away from home when the hollow highs have gone I thank God I’m not alone here I am and I have found my home here I am and I have found my home here I am and I have found my home here I am and I have found my home

Waveforms 02:55
WAVEFORMS (words and music by Steve Austin) Upon me I feel your breath Alone here in the darkness From where I stand the ocean is endless And from here I’ll sail away Upon me I feel you break On my shores once again From where we lie the ocean is endless And from here we’ll sail away Blue and black will reign in splendour If we collide our wave will catch the light Until the sunrise Our soundwaves, they form a song And pin-pricks in the darkness Tattoo in stars across the night sky ‘We sang here and we sailed away’ Blue and black will reign in splendour If we collide our wave will catch the light Until the sunrise Blue and black will reign in splendour If we collide our wave will catch the light All hail the sunrise

about

'Navaro seem to have grown together over the last three years. Heartlands exudes confidence and the make what they do sound effortless.' **** (Dai Jeffries, R2 magazine)

'This is an album to listen to for a long time... let it flow into those places that move the fibre of your being.' (Tim Carroll, www.folkwords.com/albumreviews_69242.html )

The ‘HEARTLANDS’ project emerged from rehearsals for Navaro’s 2008 acclaimed album, Under Diamond Skies. The band would set up in a circle complete with fairy lights and candles in an amazing old building that was often used as a film location. The atmosphere of the place affected the way the songs were approached and they decided to record this way and see if the magic would make it into the ‘grooves’.
And so on a day in early spring, singer/songwriters Steve Austin, Pete White and Beth Navaro together with rhythm section Clive Batkin and Will, formed a circle in the studio where the first album was made. Mark Stevens (producer) made it easy for the band and an unbelievable ten songs went down in one day!
Little Johnny England’s Gareth Turner appeared on Under Diamond Skies and has now recorded some beautiful melodeon on these new tracks. Guy Fletcher (LJE), Miles Gilderdale (Acoustic Alchemy) and James McNair (as heard on BBC TV’s ‘Coast’) also lent their considerable talents as you will discover throughout this collection.
Whilst textures and parts have been added and other songs included, the beating heart of this album remains the sound of five friends in an inspiring room forming a circle and making music
