Laura Jordan The moment I put this Album on I was entranced. The beautiful music and vocals took me to another world of peace and beauty. Each individual song is a masterpiece in itself with a story of possibility. Thank you. Favorite track: Returning.

Mauricio Araujo Atmospheric soundscapes with great vocal harmonies. I am glad that Sean put together another masterpiece after the astonishing Fire and Rain. The guitar work on this release is remarkable. Thanks Sean to make music from the heart and soul. Favorite track: Fryerstown.

Scott I was so excited when I found out that Eden had released a new album, and it doesn't disappoint! There is a perfect blend of solemn and tribal atmospheres and darkwave rock, like all their older work wrapped up into one magnificent opus. I can't pick a favorite song yet but I will mention "Sky Above," as their original recording of it has special significance for me. It's great to know St Kilda is still home to talented people and I'm looking forward to the next Eden record :D

DEATH OF A DIAMOND There’s a stranger on the hill he’s walking alone out in the rain There’s a stranger on the hill he’s miles away from everything sane This - this is the death the death of a diamond This - this is the end the end for a diamond There’s a stranger on the hill his sky is fallin’ down there’s no one around There’s a stranger on the hill he’s out in the field lights are dying down This - this is the end this is the death of a diamond This - this is the end this is the death of a precious diamond There’s a stranger on the hill he’s walking away; leaving alone There’s a nuance of will he’s leavin' the gloam the stranger’s goin’ home This - this is the end this is the death of a diamond This - this is the way the way of the diamond Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017

LOST AND FOUND Stranger days leave their mark on your way Without exception they give nothing away Therein is message only for you to read To help you on your way through your deepest time of need Well who’s to say what’s really comin’ around There really is no telling who’s the lost and who’s the found No one knows if it’ll be over real soon Sun rides high, I don’t think we’re reaching noon Even if it were dark would this block our rite of way Hearts free of fear how little they seem to weigh Well who’s to say what’s really comin’ around There really is no telling who’s the lost and who’s the found Like phoenix sinking down Gotta be a point where it burns down Like a phoenix sinking down Gotta be a point where it turns around Well is this you or me – can’t you see? Well is this you or me – can’t you see? Well is this you or me – can’t you see? Well is this you or me? Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017

GIRL WITH THE VIOLIN tonight we met among the shadows your face rose up in the mirror of the moon you are the girl with the violin your melody sweeps through this night you the girl with the violin mystery underscores our plight your dark raven hair reflects the gaze of the moon your pale ivory face rises among stars this night down by the sea you're waiting for me idylls among the waves are bringing in our love you are the girl with the violin your melody sweeps through this night you the girl with the violin mystery underscores our plight you are the girl with the violin your melody sweeps through this night you the girl with the violin mystery underscores our plight Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017

ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD Ghostly pictures blur without a sound Children crying on the merry-go-round Best intentions scattered on the breeze - Driven down without a sound Well I’ve been meaning to free my mind from the demons of my time Wanton apathy digs deep inside Stealing all the time in the world There’s all the time in the world Grey smoked chimneys fill the sky Jarred perceptions how they fly - across bland faces like tangled twine Weaving sorrow down your spine Bittersweet nothings move in on me I’m not in the mood for the vanity - Of venomous misers making to consume - All the time in the world There’s all the time in the world Well there’s no fires of hell this time Scriptures lurk deep down in the coal mine A lack of harmony and the sacred divine - brought down by the great unkind Thunder and lightning ride the horizon’s face Lights up my periphery Dissolves into space It does what it does for me Reminds me that - There’s all the time in the world There’s all the time in the world All the time in the world All the time in the world Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017

THE EDGE OF WINTER At the edge of winter lilies grow The sun wains and the fires of love rise to meet the kiss of frost Animals call in our night garden Declaring that our world is a realm of potential All we have to do is believe Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017

Returning 02:55
RETURNING Was I awake or simply dreaming When I stood still and caught the warmth from your sun As I recall it you were among friends Your face like a pale moon summoned me as if I were I drunken moth I took up my staff moved toward you Stated my name and spoke of lives and places I took my leave not knowing that we would soon know each other’s ways and drink from each other’s cups And the sea swallows me And I return to that place… Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley

PERFUME GARDEN Young children play on a summer’s day Among games and dolls tomorrow is far away In the perfume garden Where all your dreams began The perfume garden Lost dreams never end Green hedges hide yesterday’s games You run and laugh, you’re not afraid There’s really no problem In the perfume garden Where circles never end The perfume garden I can see the island I reach in for the shore My friends are waiting and smiling They’ll let me in the door Of the perfume garden You can warm your heart in The perfume garden Play your part in Well I guess you’d like to give it all up And take the path back to childhood beginnings Where there’s no problem In the perfume garden Call your name in The perfume garden You can smile You must take a while No one is counting No one is doubting In the perfume garden Where your path began The perfume garden Warm your heart in Now I see This is for me Or rather the truth is Now I am free I’d forgotten The perfume garden Where my hopes began The perfume garden Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley

DECEMBER A flower grows in silence a child calls my name In the meadows of this lifetime I’ve gathered lilacs in the rain There’s a melody coming my way greater than words December rides high There’s a melody coming my way greater than words December rides high You write upon me I rise within you Arrows of fire find their mark Nights are stronger making days lighter Like the sun we rise and fall There’s a melody coming my way greater than words December rides high There’s a melody coming my way greater than words December rides high We are poems from the heart of the night We are the rays in a new dawn We are a haven free from all harm We are a life that will remain There’s a melody coming my way greater than words December rides high There’s a melody coming my way greater than words December rides high Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017

Fryerstown 08:28
FRYERSTOWN When stars rise sheep become as foxes Look to the horizon and all the answers are in the moon He is a traveler not a passerby He is a seeker not a stranger - who will leave you in Fryerstown in Fryerstown Bound by the past memories rustle through the grass You've found the future that refused to be present He is a traveler not a passerby he is a seeker not a stranger - who will leave you in Fryerstown in Fryerstown From the still of essence 
grow flowers of the ages Breath each fragrance and feel the hurt fall away Sometimes the story is written faster than you can draw breath Sometimes the story is written faster than you can draw breath in Fryerstown in our Fryerstown Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017
