Over the last 2 weeks, I literally have not stopped writing, and playing guitar, but unfortunatly my trusted Audio Technica 4050 has decided to start crackling (and generally acting the maggot!), so it’s off to the Audio Technica hospital it goes this week. If this has not of happened there would have been some nice video and audio up on the website. Maybe this weekend…

So I’ve been reading that my favourite charity Crumlin Hospital for Sick Children is in dire need of funds at the moment. Most of you may not know, but as a new born, Crumlin Hospital saved my life. If it were not for the genius of Dr. Desmond Duff in the hospital, and for the prayers of all my family, I may not be here to write this!

I’ve been busy thinking of ways how I can help the hospital out, remotely from Australia. I have an amazing idea – that I am currently working on with Noel Taylor. I’ll tell more when everything falls into place. But one thing is for certain, Crumlin Hospital has never needed funds like this before. Once I have it all together, I will post up the idea here, and if you want to get involved you can.

I wrote a new song last week that I am really happy with called “Take me Instead”.

Here’s the lyrics on the track so far:
Strip me bare,
To the bones,
Just to see what I’m not.
I would share,
All my blood,
Just to get
what you’ve got.
And as my tears fall down,
To that place where you lay.
I won’t hear those first words,
You won’t get to say.

If you can, hear my prayers, inside my head
If you can, understand, take me instead

There’s no words
That you can cay,
To right out this wrong.
(There’s) just this void,
The will remain,
With me lifelong.
I close my eyes,
Just to see your face.
Inside of my soul,
my heart begins to race.

If you can, hear my prayers, inside my head
If you can, understand, take me instead

When it’s all left to lose,
and there’s nothing left to win,
It feels like love has lost it’s way

If you can, hear my prayers, inside my head
If you can, understand, take me instead
