Cardie's debut album is an eclectic mix of chilled reggae-tinged funk and soul tunes, complimented with lush small orchestral arrangements and jazzy experimental side dishes.

Light blue skies, red Autumn rains, calm silver seas and secret moonlit coves are captured as snapshots of a significant pilgrimage between the shadow and sunlight of his mind.

Written and produced almost entirely solo, this first offering showcases some of the best tunes to come out of his various bedrooms and sheds over the last decade.

BE YOURSELF

Lonely I was destined as a child,
To have a different take that took a while,
The colours that I saw I could not tell,
But I'm telling like it is, for you now,

Stranded in another space + time,
But its time thats been too long for me to find,
Waking up and breaking out into this future now,

So I smile, but guilty eyes say I'm wrong . . .
And its a living hell, when you can't decide who you are . . . .

You gotta be yourself, you got a ticket right around the world,
And if you're gonna come, you'd better say you'll come, and if you stay for long,
You're gonna like it more than all them fools,
That just pretend, you know they just pretend, you gotta be yourself

Shadows from back then are still here today,
They try to bring me back to earth and make me pay,
But I don't have to be another one, thats wasting this future now,

Getting sick, of the same old tricks that they do . . .
Pull the thread, and you find instead, something true . . .

You gotta be yourself . . . you gotta be yourself . . .

You gotta be yourself, you got a ticket right around the world,
And if you're gonna come, you'd better say you'll come, and if you stay for long,
You're gonna like it more than all them fools,
That just pretend, you know they just pretend, you gotta be yourself

Track Name: Don't Wake Me Up
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

DON'T WAKE ME UP

Don't wake me up, don't wake me up, don't wake me up, he said;
Reverie haunts my head

I have been dreaming, of a something so precious,
Rain and thunder and falling leaves through my mind,
Can't wash it away

Autumn and winter, they can't stop me from hoping,
Icy rain cuts my cheeks now, yes its cold,
Warm inside my heart

Don't wake me up, don't wake me up, don't wake me up, he said;
Reverie haunts my head
Don't wake me up, don't wake me up, don't wake me up he said;
"Sunny inside my head"

I'm breathless, many times have I felt like this,
Who can fight such a gentle voice, sweet and soft,
Flows right to my heart,
No-one is like you, show me someone just like you,
Won't find anyone like you, sink my heart,
Drowning deep inside

I did think that,
You could do no wrong,
All I can blame you for,
Is the beauty I see in you,
I don't think that you meant to be,
Luring me closer with loveliness,
From your eyes,

How much I like you, more than roses can tell you,
All the choices I'd choose you,
Heaven knows,
What I see in you

Darling I like you, more than roses I like you,
All the choices, I'd choose you,
You don't know,
What I see in you

(I don't think you quite understand,
Just what I mean, just what I mean,
When I say, I, feel for you
I don't want anyone else)

Don't wake me up, don't wake me up, don't wake me up he said;
Reverie haunts my head
Don't wake me up, don't wake me up, don't wake me up he said;
"Sunny inside my head"

ALL I WANT

All I want baby in life, is to feel the sun, right across my back,
All I want baby in life, is to feel the sun . . .

I don't want for nothing else, if it ain't about, peaceful vibin,
I ain't got no secrets girl, its just love has . . . got me singing

Doo, doo-de-doo, doo-de-doo, doo-de-doo,
Doo, doo-de-doo, doo-de-doo, doo-de-doo

All I want baby in life, is an afternoon and a bright blue sky,
All I want baby in life, is a bright blue sky . . .

(Rhodes solo)

I don't want for nothing else, if it ain't about, peaceful vibin,
I ain't got no secrets girl, its just love has . . . got me singing

Doo, doo-de-doo, doo-de-doo, doo-de-doo (repeat)

All I ever wanted, all I ever needed,
Little bit of sweet sunshiny love,
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed,
Li-ttle-bit-of-sweet sunshiny love,

Like the sunshine on my back, you know that,
You're all I want - you're all I want . . . (woohoo!)

LYRICS FOR OH MUMMA

Nothing seems like its really there,
I'm getting drunk on the purest air,
I blame the sun but he doesn't care,
You won't get a blind bit of sense from me cos I'm not there

Makes me smile like theres nothing wrong,
I gotta wait but it won't be long,
The birds are still singing on and on,
I'm not gonna sleep, now I don't know where,
My mind has gone,

Oh Mumma, I got that feeling on,
Oh Mumma, its comin on [so strong],
Oh Mumma, I'm in the mood tonight,
She's completely outta sight!

Seconds move like a thousand miles,
The flowers smell like a million smiles,
Well you might say I'm a juvenile,
But I'm not gonna waste any more of my life in denial

Oh Mumma . . .

PAPER BOATS

What is it that you want from me,
What is it that you want from me,
Are you waiting for the tide to change?

Every day I pick up my shield and fight,
Keep battling the demons through the night,
Do you believe this is where I want to be?

Its like sailing in a paper boat, hoping not to drown,
And darlin don't you know . . . I'm going down . . .
What would you understand, when I been crying out for your love,
And its the sign of a suffering man when he's crying out for your touch,
Darling, theres only so much,
So much that this man can stand

Never thought I'd ever be a lonely man again,
Since the day you took my hand in your hand,
Never thought I’d feel the salty tears bitter down my face

But thru the time it takes us to realise,
Theres something deep that’s deeply wrong inside,
Don't leave me hanging on what you think you see

Its like I'm sailing in a paper boat, hoping not to drown,
And darling don't you know I'm going down,
But what would you understand,
When I been crying out for your love,
And its the sign of a suffering man, oh yes it is,
When he's crying out for your touch - oh darlin' ,
Theres only so much,
So much that this man can stand
Darling, theres only so much that this man can stand

DREAMS OF YOU

I met a girl just the other day,
Or so it seemed to me today,
She had a smile like the Summer rain,
I wanna see her face again
I wanna see her smile again

I met a girl not the other day,
Although it felt like yesterday,
She had a smile like the setting sun,
Theres a place in it for everyone,
Theres a place in it for anyone

And she's always on my mind . . .

I love her with strings of my heart,
With the tenderness of my fingers,
And on the days that we spend apart,
I feel a sense of her spirit linger,
She has eyes like the crescent moon,
Dancing on a river,
And now I know that she's got my heart,
What else can I give her?
What a precious treasure

Dream of you, dream of you, dream of you,
Dreams come true, and all my dreams come true

OPEN HEARTS

I've sailed the sea at night,
The silver seas are bright,
I've seen, nothing,
So beautiful

The wind can blow tonight,
Won't make me lose my sight,
To see, I've been,
Propelled by love,

By love,
By love,
By so much love

I've come here, long ago
As a child touched silver on my toes,
And now I've heard again,
My name . . .

I've sailed the seas at night,
With darkness bathed in light,
Nothing,
So rare,
As open hearts, as o-pen hearts,
As open hearts

CA$HISH

Money, we got it,
Last a while, an' we lost it,
Thought I had it - it had me,
Can make us miss, our destiny

"We was only thinking, of getting ourself along,
Just a little better, and we can make a real comfy home,
Theres such alotta money and we can buy nearly anything"
And we got it all . . .

Ca$hed up comfort in a world o' dust, still keep lightin' up
Ca$hed up comfort in a world o' dust, keep on lightin' up
Mashed up with the only God we trust, keep right on lightin' up,
All this ca$h is going to my head,
Might get better if we just gave it all away . . .

Dirty, pity,
Waste it on, the city,
Lotsa livin' - you know that,
Not much giving, without getting back,

Ca$hed up comfort in a world o' dust, still keep lightin' up,
Ca$hed up comfort in a world o' dust, keep on lightin' up,
Ca$hed up comfort in a world o' dust, still keep lightin' up,
Mashed up with the only God we trust, keep right on lightin' up . .

. . . All this ca$h is going to my head,
Something better that I found but it got away . . .

AMENDS

Of all the things I've seen,
The voice of a dream is lost,
Of all the times we've sailed,
The seas of our minds across,
Of all the songs we've heard,
That argue apart today,
Of all the things you make me feel I want to say . . .

Woh, woh people,
Lets make amends,
Lets make amends

Of all the scars I see,
To complicate within,
Of all the ones I'd choose,
To help me lose this skin

Woh, oh people,
Lets make amends,
Lets make amends

I wanna be free, I wanna be free,
Oh Lordy,
Ooh I,
Want to be free,
Oh, Lord,
Oh Lordy

LEAD ME TO THE WAY

Lead me to the way,
Help me find a way out, oh yeah,
Sometimes it all falls, infront of me,
Others it hangs over me

Lead me to the way; something I can feel with both my hands,
You'd bless my life again, inside of me,
Now thats getting close to the pain

We're gonna feel the dark sometimes
It comes as bright as day,
Take heed,
Don’t listen to its promises,
Or you will fade away

Lead me to the way; Evil is a cruel & pleasant liar,
He'd risk our souls for so much less,
Than it takes our eyes to confess

Lead me to the way, oh yeah,
To unlearn all the roads inside my head,
I'd have a heart alight and flaming red,
And bursting out through all that I said

We're gonna feel the dark sometimes,
It comes as bright as day,
Those days,
The path looks pretty narrow,
But it wont fade away

If love is what it is, then I don't wanna miss,
