This is the epic track from the latest release, 3rd Wheel (the bits that didn't fit) which are tracks that were either too long for other CDs, or had been used in compilation albums for GORGG etc.
NxNW is a mostly diatonic outing and has a lot of vocal harmonies.


Waiting for a chance
(waiting for a chance)
and in the daylight waning
(to win your heart or soul)
loss or gain I'm
waiting in the strange
(waiting in the strange)
silence that still surrounds you
sounds too quiet to change
(silence of your soul)

I run from the hounds
(I run from the hounds)
mystery chases me and
runs me into
(the selling of your soul)
grounded by the light
(grounded by the light)
shines in your eyes and maybe
I'll rest for the night.
(Your sheltering heart)

Your heart beside me, softly beats beside me.

Waiting in the dark,
(waiting in the dark)
taking too long to see the truth of me and
(truth of)
her life in my heart
something that softly grows and grows into
the better part of me

Your heart inside me, softly beats inside me

I chase after her,
mountains and depths of feeling, reeling into the
dark and silent
night fails and sunrise
pulling her into my arms
into my heart
and into my life

Originally formed in 1991 as a fusion-based midi ensemble, the floating lineup has gradually focused on a modern, more performance-oriented, genre-blending Prog. ... more
