about

'Sail Home' is my new EP, available now. Two years in the making, I spent countless hours playing on the streets of Bellingen and beyond, writing and testing material on the fly. I met and shared story with many wonderful souls, and was moved and inspired by them. I finally came to these songs with the help of my friend and producer, Rob Wolfe. Within the maelstrom of daily life, we found long nights to experiment and record.

The art work is a painting by Australian artist, and my great friend, Michael Muir. This portrait was created especially for this record.

I hope you will enjoy.

Peace,

Yhan Leal

Track Name: Sail Home
In the springtime I followed your path

I held your pack, we felt the cold

We drew breath and wandered this life

Near the ocean

Like your father and his father before

They drew lines in the sand to behold

They pointed south to the wind and the trees

Near the ocean

Sail Home

In that boat we sailed far and wide

We drank the stars, we stopped for the night

We slept with heaven, to a child we were born

Near the Ocean

Sail Home

Feel the sun fall on this place

Make believe that there's nowhere to go

feel your whole body say sail home
Track Name: Stormy Sea
Stormy Sea

All the stories that you told me, are written in stone, within my heart

And the laughter, and the tears, and the sorrow

They are part and parcel of the way

I remembered what you'd say

You said

All your dreams are like stars in the night

They will guide you over the stormy sea

Away from tragedy, don't just take it from me

All your friends and your loved ones

They are smitten like thorns upon a rose

And their laughter, and their fears, and their false hopes

They are part and parcel of the way

I remembered what you'd say

You'd say

All your dreams...
Track Name: Silver Soul
Silver Soul

All the lines and colours of your reverie

Hide them in the ground for keeping when we meet

Then we wait for the right time along the way

Patchwork and holes is all I recall

I know you faked your death

I can feel you like a ghost

Like a fire in the rain

Only time does cool the soul

Oh your love is my only drug

Im so close to overdose

I do love your silver soul

Altered minds of silence form your cavalry

Higher than the clouds we're seeing everything

We wait for the right time along the way

Patchwork and holes is all I recall

I know you faked your death

I can feel you like ghost

Unconscious but awake

This new sleep fits like a glove

Your love is my only drug

I'm so close to overdose

I do love your silver soul
Track Name: Mercy
Mercy

Rising from the deep

A dream that came to me

The ocean took my life

Hung me in the sky

Did I see the light, call for mercy

When silence is your god, there's no-one with to talk

The ocean will not speak, or yearn to be released

Did I see the light, call for mercy, oh lord

When violence is at your side

There's nowhere left to run

Asleep under the lake

Redeemed shall be the righetous

Did I see the light, call for mercy
Track Name: The Brave
The Brave

If ever you come this way, over the hills

If ever you contemplate, on the wind and the trees

If ever you say my name, don't forget

To rest your head

To rest your soul

To rest your bones

So you sold your interest

I am the sun, I am the wind

So you gave away

I am the flood, I am the pain

You're no longer innocent

I am the courage, I am the Brave
Track Name: Stranger Things
Stranger Things

Cradled by celestial winds

Skyless clouds, lidless eyes

Above your window, magenta stars

Cats tails, lizard eye

Fire fly iris, simple hymns

Shop front window and a cold morning wind

Stranger things have happened, to me

Violet dreaded locks deep

Roots in a place I'm desperate to leave

Cast a spell above your window

Magenta stars

Stranger things have happened, to me
