Reminds me of Al Stewart who I have always loved. Very 70ish and just the way I like folk music. Be proud of the song and good luck. xo Sarah

(extract from blog and lyrics re this song

Second up I’ve entered “Map To The Morning” in Male Singer/Songwriter. This is a piece I am tremendously proud of and a song that has received a lot of internet airplay via several podcasts. Its a song about the yearning for innocence lost, magical places and things that exist only in our imagination but that we wish were real and the desire to be able to slip away from the harsh realities of modern life to an enchanted place and time with your true soulmate. May sound a bit wishy-washy but I think it works and the lyrics are among my favourites that I have written. It is the second track on my album. It has become a favourite of my fans on the live circuit and I now tend to keep this piece to finish off my set or use as an encore. Dreamy, other-worldly, happy – a spiritual love song is how I best describe this composition

Lyrics to "Map To The Morning

Won't you come with m
Through sapphire skies and diamond eye
To “Tranquility
Where the mermaids pla
At the side of the ba
What do you think you'll fin
If you trade in an eye to be kin
In the land of the blind
I want to se
Atlantis seren
In aquamarin

Open your eyes
And I'll make ou
A map to the mornin
Open your min
And I'll buil
A bridge to the sk
Open your eye
And I'll make out
A map to the mornin
In a land where the unicorn ru
And the phoenix still flies to the su
Somewhere to danc
Beneath a snowdrift of star

Tell me where would you rather b
Just stuck in the smok
Or seduced by the sound of the se
I want to fee
That whats here is the drea
And whats there isn't rea
So which is the priceless fin
The large nugget of gold
Or a small piece of mind
I want to to tr
To recall how to laug
And forget how to cr

Open your eyes
And I'll make ou
A map to the mornin
Open your min
And I'll buil
A bridge to the sk
Open your eye
And I'll make out
A map to the mornin
I'm sure we could slip away soo
So I'll meet you out under the moo
We can slip off our shoe
Sign our souls in the san

Open your eyes
And I'll make ou
A map to the mornin
Open your min
And I'll buil
A bridge to the sk
Open your eye
And I'll make out
A map to the mornin
In that land where the unicorn ru
- The phoenix still flies to the su
Somewhere to danc
Beneath a snowdrift of star

Open your eyes
And I'll make ou
That map to the mornin
Open your min
And I'll buil
A bridge to the sk
Open your eye
And I'll make out
A map to the mornin
I'm so sure we could slip away soo
So I'll meet you out under the moo
We can slip off our shoe
Sign our souls in the san

Can assure anyone that thinks otherwise that this is just one electro-acoustic guitar and vocals
