about

Most of the words were written by Keith Smith. There are two female vocalists - Annie McIntosh and (the main one) Deb Lyons.

Mixed by Ryan Oliver. What a star!

What talent scouts Taxi.com said about The Light-Filled Corner:

"Incredibly well-written songs and emotionally captivating performances. I'm not sure I can put into words how much I appreciate what you've accomplished...you've got to be buried six feet under not to be moved by the captivating performances. Lyrically, you're working at an extremely high level. It's all so incredibly appealing. Really looking forward to hearing more!"

lyrics

Well I refuse
To think of you
Somewhere in my minds eye
That horizon is still blue

Through the rushes to the sand dunes
Looking out to the sea
In that deathly moment
Time stands still for me

Ah lost lover
Do you think of me
Do you surface
Or do you sink beneath the sea

Ah the sea
Do you sink
With me
With me

Through the rushes to the sand dunes
Are you in that place
Where no light can reach
Looking out to the sea
Dragged down by the burden
And the beach
In that frozen moment
Through the rushes to the sand dunes
And the shining sea
Time stands still for me
In that frozen moment
Where all will ever be
Ah, lost lover
All will ever be
I sill see your face
Did you finally surface
I refuse
Or sink without a trace
I refuse
I refuse
To think of you

Ah, lost lover
Did you make it to shore
Are you caught in the riptide
Adrift for ever more
ever more

Well I refuse
To think of you
