about

'Pole to Pole' is dedicated to the memory of my late Grandfathers who came from opposite sides of the globe, literally poles apart.

Two beautiful, kind-hearted men who shared and nurtured my love of music.

Carol O'Neill 1932 - 2016
Dave Gollan 1926 - 2017

Track Name: Raffled Roses
Im staging a sneaky intervention of my cold cold
Im staging a sneaky intervention of my cold cold heart

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time
raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time

Dragging my feet
The weight of your bouquet was heavy company
Frangrance so sweet but one by one by one
I sold them all

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time
raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time

Three little words
Sat pretty on a throne that barely holds the load

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time
raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time

I wana be alone but don't wana be lonely
Will he find me? Will I find him?
And will he thaw my, will he thaw my, will he thaw my
Cold, cold heart?

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time
raffling off your roses in
raffling off your roses in my spare time

I wana be alone but don't wana be lonely
Don't wana be
Track Name: Havisham
Bride to be with cobwebs on her heart
Twisting minds of young becomes an art
Tables set but the party never started
Melancholy encased in her lair
Yellow lace the only thing she wears
Tables set but the party never started

The hands of the clock stopped
Hands of the clock stopped at twenty to nine x2
She stopped time

Havisham
Tell me why your ghost arrived so early
Havisham
Tempting fate you left the cake in fury
Havisham, Havisham

Candle light, no natural light of day
One shoe on she wants to see you play
Tables set but the party never started

The hands of the clock stopped
Hands of the clock stopped at twenty to nine x2
She stopped time

Havisham
Tell me why your ghost arrived so early
Havisham
Tempting fate you left the cake in fury
Havisham, Havisham
Track Name: Black Lake
Skimming all my stones 'cross the ocean
Wana dive down to devotion
That's where I long to be
There while your heart still sleeps

Never wash up on the shoreline
Wana make sure it's for all time
Don't save a prayer for me
If we get lost at sea

Hush baby don't be nervous
Down here below the surface
Here where the current flows
I wana be alone

With you
I'll descend for miles and miles with you
Deeper and deeper...
With You
I'll descend for miles and miles with you
Deeper and deeper...

A hundred leagues of sea lie between us
Titan's home is ours if you just trust
Watching your tail spin
Why don't you just jump in?

The only breath we'll save is our last kiss
As we're swallowed up by the abyss
Then we'll go happily
If we get lost at sea

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

Been here for a while now
Take a dip and see how
Took a breath and I'm not coming up
Coming up no x2

CHORUS OUT
Track Name: Negroni Eyes
I've inadvertently taught my sneaky sorrows to swim
But they thrived in the wine I tried to drown them in.

Now they're, now they're, now they're

Knee deep, mad for my vices loved up and
Knee deep, mad for my vices
Knee deep, mad for my vices
I fear they'll never leave

I've inadvertently taught my sneaky sorrows to box
They're punching above their weight but they won't stop

Now they're, now they're, now they're

CHORUS

Wading through Negroni Eyes
Wading through Negroni Eyes trying to find her
Wading through Negroni Eyes
Wading through Negroni Eyes trying to find her
The queen bee, that's taunting me
The queen bee is, she's me

I've inadvertently taught my sneaky sorrows to hide
They're playing cops and robbers with no alibi

Now they're, now they're, now they're

CHORUS
Track Name: Diaspora
Digging my roots I'll wake it up
Jolting my home I live on top of the trees
Now that I'm older I'll get to know ya

Second hand stories from a motherland
I'll hold on to comics with a Dundee hue
Diaspora soaked in accents 'aspora my soul keeps flashing
Granny said be halfway back if you were any further, further

CHORUS

Pole to pole I'll ae fond kiss it better
Kiss it better

Now that I'm older
Digging my roots up now that I'm older
Scouting the hills out now that I'm closer
Braving the heart out
Now namesake I sign her

Now that I'm older I'll get to know ya
Get to know ya, get to know ya
Now that I'm older I'll get to know ya
Track Name: Neverland
At stupid o'clock on the dot
You'll find me swinging from the rafters
Outside a storm blinds the time
And lures the corners of my mind

If it's below my dignity to
Below my dignity to climb a tree
Below my dignity to
Below my dignity to climb a tree
Then I never wanna grow up

At stupid o'clock on the dot
Illusion never caught the dice, dice
Recipe forever lost
Snowed under on the front lawn

PRE CHORUS

I'm never leaving Neverland
I never wana grow up
Never leaving, never leaving
I never wana grow up
I'm never leaving Neverland
I never wana grow up
I'm never leaving Neverland

With no umbrella to my name
And no common sense in my frame
With no umbrella to my name
Can I please play in the rain

And you say Wally come down
While you're dragging two shadows around
And you say Wally come down
But I'm miles from the ground
