about

This is an album of songs written by Sun Sawed in 1/2's songwriter, guitarist, Tim Rose during his time in Europe. It was recorded by Florian Manchek of Wild Cowboys in Vienna and features great Viennese jazz players as the rhythm section and members of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra scoring the songs. While this may sound like a turn around from the power-pop of the Sun Sawed in 1/2, the songs are conveyed in an original, yet familiar style. Baroque pop at its finest written and sung by the Sun's songwriter Tim Rose.

Track Name: Watching the World Turn Slowly/From This Day Forward
Watching the World Turn Slowly

Now I fall asleep in love
Watching the world turn slowly

Now I fall asleep in love
Watching the world turn slowly wink and smile bright

From This Day Forward

From this day forward I’ll be everything to everyone
I wouldn’t lie so much as feel everything all at once
Though I tried but it’s so hard, I slipped again
and let those feelings come coax me out of my head

From this day forward I’ll feel everything to only you
I’ll hear your cries and taste your tears
anything and every want
I know I tried but it’s so hard, tried to refrain
and let those feelings come cascade over my brain

I’ll say it again you’re so much more
Say it again this time with my heart

You know it’s true
I feel for you
But I’m too embarrassed by the words that I choose
So I rest my case - yeah I’ve made some mistakes
Slowly the sun will come back to your face

Track Name: All the Rage
All the Rage

This is what went wrong
Like the one who came before you
I just only wanna please you
You say nothing’s wrong
There’s a song in your head but no one sings along
Like a shell shocked sick of more
Like the one who came before you
I just only wanna be you
Nothing is lasting too long
I’ve a hook in my mouth, let’s all sing along

I know a place down deep in my heart
it’s all the rage
So take my hand and I’ll show you all the way

In the shade of a sycamor
Lies the one who’s lain before you
and just only wants to dream you
Nothing is lasting too long
But the song in his head we all hum along
Sing la la la la la
I’m the one who doth adore you
and I only wanna please you
Never forget he’s well sung
It’s the best of your life let’s all tag along

Your words have vined inside me
Wax sealed and book bind me
Congealed and entwined me
Here’s truth now...
I loved you more than the words that I could form
I loved you more, I loved you more, I loved you...more
I loved you more than the words that I could form
I loved you more, I loved you more, I loved you...more

Track Name: Come Alive
Come Alive

Here is the time of our own
the love that we had is all but grown
Here is what time itself has borne
the love that we had star spangled in gold

Fear not, my voice is close to you
the dark of the sound with soon be through
Here is my hand offered free
been there all the time and always will be

Put your heart up close to me
Put your heart up close to me
and let me feel your soul
let me feel your soul
come alive

Watch watch me change before your eyes
The boy that you knew is nearly half wise
But fear has no taste to be grown
The boy that you knew is almost home

Track Name: Wish It All Away
Wish It All Away

I woke up to find. Sick of the world and most its kind
So I, I wished it all away

And I woke up to see mirror mirror mocking me
So I wished it all away

Wished it all away
I don’t believe anymore
All that’s left to say’s
bye bye, so long, I’m gone

And I woke up to face a world set triple spaced
So I wished it all away

Something we don’t speak of
(where the rain don’t shine)
Under we carpet shove
(where your concious chimes)
Whats missing I think’s called love but
You supplied my only light
now you don’t notice

I woke up to find
I missed the world and most its kind
So I, I wished it back to stay

Track Name: The Rest of Your Life
The Rest of Your Life

I don’t know if I can please you
All I hope is to make you smile
Here is my hand, my heart
and my soul and my life

Every thing I have... I’ll give to you
And every time I smile... I’ll think of you

Ask how long I’m here for;
and I’ll hold your hand tight
For I will stay beside you
for the rest of your life

Every time I smile... (Everytime I wake)
I’ll think of you
Every song I sing... (Every song I sing)
I’ll sing to you

I don’t know if I can please you
All I hope is to make you smile
Here is my hand, my heart
and my soul and my life.
Here is my hand, my heart
and my soul and my life

Track Name: Fresh Mowed Lawn
Fresh Mowed Lawn

If you wake up, fore the sun’s yet ignite
Then I’ll show you, all these things in my mind

Lay your head on my fresh mowed lawn
and drift away
Let the dream you had become your life
or you’ll regret it someday

If I wake up, would you sing me back to sleep?
I’ve no taste for, what they call reality

(Down her soul she lays)
Once upon a summer rhyme
We made a soul in 3/4 time
Won’t you come and lie with me?
Let’s make one and one make three
I shined the light in your face

It’s raining snoring, dull not boring
think I lost my heart
Lying in my fresh mowed lawn

I love you more each day
I love the songs you play
Show me yours, I’ll show you mine
and we can be conjoined
It could happen everyday now
It could happen everyday now
Lie with me in my fresh mowed lawn
Enscribe yourself on me
Turn it up all the way now
Turn it up all the way now

Track Name: Curded Wheys
Curded Wheys

Till you’ve played her pawn
and you’ve hummed her song
and not got everything quite wrong
Till that time comes
You’ll never really know her

Till her sun is sawn and you’ve mowed her lawn
Raked praises and bagged up all her charms
Till you’ve met her mom
You’ll never really know her
No way

Did the time you passed
make you feel like you’re soaring?
or maybe you feel like
you’re simply just floating away
Blue hued like a mood ring on her tongue
But you’ll never know her, impress her or show her
no you’ll never get her that way

Till you’ve plucked her sage and curded her wheys
Her garden you will never graze
Till she comes of age
you’ll never really know her
no way

Till that time comes
You’ll never really know her
know her at all

Track Name: Dear Miss Everything
Dear Ms. Everything

I’ve recognized
what's hollow in some
you flood mine wet overflow
And I apologize
if I’m moved with adore
Cause you fill my shadowless soul
For when you walked,
right out in my headlights

Dear Ms. Everything
I want you in the most terrible
Dear Ms. Everything
I want you in the most terrible way

Maelstrom subsides
with your movement in it seems
You’re all at once everything
In moon time she flies bright
and circles my porch light

Dear Ms. Everything
I want you in the most terrible
Dear Ms. Everything
I want you in the most terrible way (Not so far away)
Is all too much to ask? do you doubt that after we’d nothing to talk about
But darling till that day
I want you in the most terrible way
I want you in the most terrible way

Track Name: She Loves Me (She Loves You Not)
She Loves Me (She Loves You Not)

I know this twirling girl
String pulled tightly then away she whirls
I carnally dream she spins closer to me and my world

Then in walked this charming man
The sun shines around him so he’s quite tan
And every girl in his widescreen world wants his hand

But she loves me
She loves you not
No loves me
She love you not
I don’t care what he has cause I know what I’ve got
the peddles have spoken
She loves me and loves you not

You say this couldn’t last
Lip smacked cherry kiss away my past
Slink closer to me baptised in your sea I’m cast

I know I’m no dream beau
So why does her sea crest closer to me
best ask one who sees
what others can’t dream
She loves me. She loves me

Track Name: Once Upon A Summer/Sogni D'Oro
Once upon A Summer

I loved you from the start I heard your heart
Beating deep in the rose garden
Through a tinny speaker came
Your life won’t be the same

I want for you so much I can’t express
no I could not wait to meet you
From a maternal hurricane
Your life will never be the same
as it once was
Once upon a summer
when I saw your sweet eyes
so proud that I was there
For I never cried so much
Now I’ve said enough
Welcome to world

I want for you parades and glitter days
All the things that make it worthwhile
Ten thousand angels to sing
your life will never be the same

Welcome to world
Welcome to world
Welcome to world
my son

(Day is breaking no more waiting think I found my heart)

Once I used to talk too much. Now I’ve said enough

Sogni D’oro

I forgot that love could feel this way
I forgot that love could feel this great
And as I watch you sleep
I wish you gold dreams
I wish you gold dreams
