about

This album of uplifting folk music is the documentation of stories and poetry from my journeys and adventures through out the islands of Indonesia.

From the charm of the people and colourful vibrant culture to the powerful volcanic land and mesmerising oceans there has never been a shortage of inspiration living in Indonesia as a song writer.

It has been a pleasure and an honour working, living and creating with some of Indonesia's finest musicians to eventually put this album together.

The album's stories and inspirations first arose from mind blowing trips to mountain villages in north Bali when I first arrived in Indonesia aged 20.

In the 10 years since that has passed, it feels like there have been thousands of years of stories and special moments that I have experienced.

It is no doubt a magic land.

A vast archipelago of natural beauty and hidden treasure's anywhere one is game to look.

Thank you to Indonesia for this experience, her people and the love and hospitality they have shown to me. May this archipelago continue to be blessed and we nurture and protect her natural God given island landscape.

Thanks for tuning in,
Nick

Blue Sky

when I’m with the tide I’m a livin’ I’m a livin’ &
when I take my time I’m a livin’ I’m a livin’ now

Got the sunshine in my eyes got your memory in my heart
but I wanna keep going high will you meet me in the sky
will you meet me in blue sky

Coz when I take my time I’m a livin’ I’m a livin’
and when I see you rise I’m a livin’ I’m a livin’
and when I’m hypnotised I’m a livin’ I’m a livin’
and when I take my time I’m a livin I’m a livin now

Coz when I take my time I’m a livin’ I’m a livin’
& when I’m with your sky I’m a livin’ I’m a livin’
When I’m with the tide I’m a livin’ I’m a livin’

Track Name: Land of a Million Suns
Land of a Million suns

In the land of a million suns the light had just begun
revealing as she swan the queen Lemur
as the tide begun to change the land recalled her name
and she rose up all the same and said it’s time
she said it’s time to gather round & time to hear the sound
and finally feel your feet upon the ground

and be free the run free to climb free to finally realise and
why a heart that’s with the sun believes you are the one
believe’s in you and that your time has come, come..

I told her everything about a man that’s from the sky
as I climbed that mountain needn’t I ask why
at an all revealing height rose up through the light
and I heard her whispered sigh.. say be (chorus)

when this moment takes a hold she’s a livin’ she’s forgiven
when this tide is only rollin’ she’s a livin she’s a givin’
all the time all the way, all the time yeah..

chorus
Track Name: Ayo Indonesia

(chorus)

Kalua ada Agnes atau Sule di sini di tempat sini

negri ini nyanyi dengan penuh warna yang ada

to set your mind free coz there’s only just a like
a million ways to be when you’re comin’ hot hot
and fresh from the sea
Buzzin’ in your mind you know there comes a time
was it in this life time was it yours or mine?
was there people in the street dancing round
sublime attuned to the frequency of feeling fine
Betet betah di pantai drinking coconut with lime
laughing mouth open wide eating sunshine
buzzing in his body is the miracle of life coz every
soul’s divine feeling Indo time..
(chorus)
Track Name: All Along
All Along

I’ve been an old rogue low tide fighter dancin’ the
full moon light igniter memories stay or fade at the
heights I run there’s signs like guns bright as a
millions suns to be true I follow ‘em like the chosen
one filling the day with ways a heart just can’t explain
then we skip trip bop with our heads held high
dancing to our village hoppin’ in the mountain sky
It’s an indostanding with out no need to try

in the morning rush I lost my love
I found her dancing on the midday sun
and all my fears I just let go
coz if you know I’m right here all along
I’ve been right here all along..

I know a soul high ocean roll in low tide disappears
to a realm unknown sparkle seas like a queen
jump up live mystery and dive deep to the bottom
of discovery to the meaning of an island hopping
spree at the art of the heart Java Lombok Bali
Oo wee.. (chorus)

in the morning I wake to the dragon’s roar drink
A real life elixir shakes me to the core pokin’ in
is the life of a world I knew before
but I welcome in the new day another chance to
swim when I’m really deep and wide she let me in
wrong turn whats that live song come back oh I’ve
been right here all along..

in the morning rush I lost my love
I found her dancing on the midday sun
and all my fears I just let go
Coz if you know I’m right here all along
and I’ll be right here all along.. all along now baby..
Come on I’ll be right here all along, singin’ my song
Track Name: Pagi Siang
Pagi Siang

Pagi siang sore malam berapa harga perasaan
yang ku rasa didalam hatiku saat seharian merasa
kemarau hujan panas terik terang bulan lalu
masukin kedamaian memenui kehidupan kehidupan

Ahha it’s like a story it’s life rollin’ by in all it’s glory
It’s high bright as the sun and what’s more it’ll
vanish before your eyes if you’re not sure
and you wonder just sitting back take a minute just
to ponder if you’re on track think about what lies
Beyond er’ but tell me don’t you think you really
wanna figure out what lies within and she’ll be
waiting for your love you’re hesitating from above
and why’re you hating? Can’t you see this is the time
to set your mind free, oh this could be the seven
high seas of the latest mysteries but it’s time to be
Livin’ in love and harmony

Pagi siang sore malam berapa harga perasaan

kemarau hujan panas terik terang bulan lalu
masukan kedamaian yaitulah kehidupan kehidupan

Well you mind can’t sleep what’s wrong with ya
seems like we’re all living with insomnia well there’s
peace in the pocket of a prophet ya I can’t think what
else might be harming ya but I’m feeling like a change
in the water ya and the foods from the fields of love
Ahha coz the moon she’s singin’ from above say what?
and the sun I know he ain’t ever givin’ up and
they keep talking what they’ve been creating
it’s easy to see that they’re just hating discussing
and math debating and it feels like I should join em
but it’s far too late and keep shaking keep earth
quaking if you feel it’s time for braking down these
walls out of these halls and live for a little bit of lovin’
makin, lovin’ makin

Pagi siang sore malam berapa harga perasaan
yang ku rasa didalam hatiku saat kecintaan mau
ambil kekuasaan lalu ketakutan dibuang baru
masukan kedamaian memenuhi kehidupan

Come on now
From the siang from the siang mystery
But it’s time to be livin’ in love and harmony

Pagi siang sore malam berapa harga perasaan
yang ku rasa di dalam hatiku saat seharian merasa
kemarau hujan panas terik terang bulan baru
masukin kedamaian memenuhi kehidupan kehidupan
Woah yeah..

This life this rhyme this time, well come on now

friends we’re yelling go toe to toe ocean roll five different
ways to say hello and messing with the ocean finding island
love probably like the time I was five looking to the sky and
searching out so high above I knew that I could feel the love
but really couldn’t get enough well now’s your time open
eyes these are your forever skies (chorus)

So I learnt a new language gave up living anguish kalau kamu
memang mau kita bisa pergi jauh something bout going far

depressed but this’ a song about love and givin’ out your
hearts best & bless the world bless Indonesia, here’s a lil
rhyme let’s you know I really need ya:

segalanya tapi aku berjuang karna cinta dia pemenang bisa
menyenang kehidupan jadi come on sing along jika kau merasa
cinta didalam hati kamu kan jangan melupakan tuk makan
banyak makanan yang sehat agar kamu akan menjadi seorang
yang kuat jadi ayo orang-orang kembali ke susunan kata-kata
yang senang tetap kuat tetap Ha tetap sang pemimpi yO

She Belongs to the Sea

I swam with a pearling moon, before we parted ways
She sang with her glimmer eyes, pearls filled up my chest

She sang these belong to, these belong to,
these belong to the sea
these belong to, these belong to, these belong to the sea
and Oh my love, bring them back to me

I swam with a giant man, he taught me how to breathe
He took me up to his land, he gave me all I’d need
Before we parted ways I handed him my keys

I sang these belong to, these belong to, these belong to the sea
These belong to, these belong to, these belong to the sea
And Oh my love bring them back to me

I swam with my dolphin girl along our song line all through
time still entwined
She belongs to, she belongs to, she belongs to the sea
she belongs to, she belongs to, she belongs to the sea
and Oh my love bring her back to me

Oh my love, Oh my love..
