about

edencane's second album. A handful of soulful, unique sounding songs, with a few covers thrown into the mix. A culmination of 3 years of writing.

--

"One Big Tree" is his second album and I am truly delighted to have worked on this. The first album "Men In Light" is a personal favorite and really puts the name edencane up there with some of the greats of Folk Rock both in Australia and internationally.
edencane says it perfectly himself, "I was put on this planet to make music". That he was.
(Benedict Roff-Marsh)

Track Name: One Big Tree
on the land is one big forest
on the land is one big tree
over yonder looking over the ocean
over and under looking back at me

on the land is one big forest
on the land is one big tree
taking the time looking over the ocean
taking the time sailing on the sea

what'll I do when a life is waning
what'll I do when a life is gone
what'll I do when the blood is leaving
what'll I do when the blood is gone
when the blood is gone, the blood is gone
the blood is gone, the blood is gone
the blood is gone, the blood is gone

on the land is one big forest
on the land is one big tree
circle around circle over the ocean
circle around circle back to me

what'll I do when my love is needed
what'll I do when its almost gone
what'll I do when my love is shaken
what'll I do when the love is gone
the love is gone, the love is gone
the love is gone, the love is gone

on the land is one big forest
on the land is one big tree
on the land I can circle around it
on the land I can see its me

on the land is one big forest
on the land is one big tree
on the land is one big forest
circle around so we all can sing

on the land is one big forest
on the land is one big tree
raise it up to the sky above me
raise it up so I can see
raise it on up so we all can see
Track Name: Pictures Of Jesus Christ
painted pictures of Jesus Christ
hang outside my door
faded photos of my life
I cant ignore

illusions have all turned to dust
naked on the floor
dreams are doomed to end in lust
I'll say no more

you know Id rather be
on the cover of a magazine
making love to a beauty queen
you know Id rather be

pains to keep the antiChrist
locked outside my door
to me his life is too defiled
to say much more

see my life Im travelling
lost in ebb and flow
mysterys unravelling
of what I need to know

you know Id rather be
under cover, a mujahideen
a missing actor in a movie scene
you know Id rather be

turn toward the truth I say
take me as I am
face the lies that come my way
you know where I stand

time is lost imagining
life in ebb and flow
see my flaws unravelling
long to let it go

you know Id rather be
on the cover of a magazine
making love to a beauty queen
a missing actor in a movie scene
under cover a mujahideen
you know Id rather be
you know Id rather be
Track Name: Freight Train
everything that's dear to me
disappearing in the night
it’s all becomin' clear to me
not necessarily my fight
I listen to the women cry
hold on till the morning light

there’s a freight train comin’ down
and it’s comin’ on the down the line
there’s a freight train comin’ down
and it’s comin’ the down the line
I wont be here to pick you up
when that freight train comes around

I can hear the doctor callin’
and the nurses say it too
they’re sending me a warning
to release me from the blues… I got
can you catch me when Im fallin’
coz’ it’s somethin’ I can’t do

there’s a freight train comin' down
and it’s comin' on the down the line
there’s a freight train comin' down
and it’s comin' on the down the line
I’ll be leaving here tomorrow
when that freight train comes on by

when I reach the gates of heaven
someones barring me the door
now Ive reached the gates of heaven
tell me what those bars are for
theres the life I left behind me
and the one I’ve got in store

there’s a freight train comin' down
and it’s comin' on the down the line
a freight train comin' down
and it’s comin' on the down the line
meet me here tomorrow
when that freight train comes on by

I lived a life of hate and fear
and Ive lived a life of sin
I end up in the devil’s lair
and he tells me with a grin
you've only got your soul to lose
and nothing left to win

a freight train comin' down
comin' on down the line
a freight train comin’ down
comin’ on down the line
it all just seems like yesterday
when the freight train come on down
and I won't be here tomorrow
no, no, no
Track Name: By the Time I Get to Phoenix
by the time I get to Phoenix she'll be risin'
she'll find the note thats hanging on her door
she'll laugh at the part that says I'm leaving
cause so many times I've left that girl before

by the time I make Albuquerque she'll be workin'
she'll probably stop for lunch and give me a call
but she'll just hear that phone keep on ringin'
off the wall... that's all...

by the time I make Oklahoma she'll be sleepin'
she'll turn softly and call my name out low
and she'll cry just to think I'd really leave her
though time and time I've tried to tell her so
she just didn't know... I would really go

Track Name: Really You
you took me by the hand
was it really you
did you write between the lines
did you keep behind the scenes
to hide what was in your eyes
was it really you

did you say you were in my shoes
because you knew that Id believe
when you put out the news
was it really you
really you, really you

I looked inside the life
offered many a sacrifice
I wondered what was real
whether to show you how I feel
show you how I feel
show you how I feel

you took me by surprise
was it really you
when you lived delusions on the road
when you traded in and
gave in to another mans dream
was it really you

you gave in to defeat
decided not to fight for what
you thought might well have been real
was it really you
really you, really you

I looked inside the life
offered many a sacrifice
I wondered what was real
whether to show you how I feel
show you how I feel
show you how I feel

you took me for a fool
was it really you
you signed me up for the so called dream
I paid the price for
something I could not redeem
was it really you

when I turned my back lost sight of love
embraced illusions any time and
lost the aim to choose
was it really you
really you, really you

I looked inside the life
offered many a sacrifice
I wondered what was real
whether to show you how I feel
show you how I feel
show you how I feel
Track Name: Never Be Controlled
you know this time I say

its mothers natures call

my love is on the way
my love is on the way
my love is on the way
we'll never be controlled

you meant the world to me
was only yesterday
we'll never be controlled

you took my heart away
you took my soul away

we'll never be controlled

because my life is clear
you know’ll be waiting here
because my life is clear
we'll never be controlled

we'll never be controlled
we'll never be controlled
we'll never be controlled
we'll never be controlled
Track Name: Woman Blues
I had myself a woman
she left me standing outside
had myself a woman
she kept me standing outside

walking through the hallway
Im trying every door
I got the key in my hand and
Im trying every door

I was trying hard to please her
trying hard to change her mind
I was trying hard to please her
still she left me outside

what are you waiting for
dont leave me waiting here no more
please open up the door
and let me come inside
no no no
oh no, dont leave me outside
mmm yea
oh yea, let me come inside

waiting at the station
she left me standing in line
waiting at the station
someone had to draw the line

driving down the freeway
heading for NSW
rolling down the freeway
heading for NSW

I know there's gotta be a garden
but I wake up in a bed of tears
seems to me its been forgotten
after all these years
gonna leave this all behind me
gonna give it all away
I swear they're never gonna find me
if it takes my life
oh yea
after all these years
mmm yea
oh yea if it takes my life
Track Name: Yultide

Im a xmas man myself at times
many a day a year

the number you have dialed
is not in service
Track Name: Hallelujah
I've heard there was a secret chord
that david played, and it pleased the lord
but you dont really care for music do you
it goes like this, the fourth the fifth
the minor fall the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah

your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you to a kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah

baby I have been here before
I know this room Ive walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
Ive seen your flag on the marble arch
love is not a victory march
its a cold and its a broken hallelujah
hallelujah hallelujah
hallelujah hallelujah

there was a time when you let me know
whats really going on below
but now you never show it to me do you
and remember when I moved in you
the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah
hallelujah hallelujah
hallelujah hallelujah

maybe theres a god above
but all Ive ever learned from love
was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
its not a cry you can hear at night
its not somebody who has seen the light
its a cold and its a broken hallelujah
hallelujah hallelujah
hallelujah hallelujah

hallelujah hallelujah
hallelujah hallelujah
