Lived by the words of my brothers Fell by the wayside of the street Lived our lives rough and tumble When we played We played for keeps One dizzy night in the autumn She said hold out your palm Let it speak Though your stars are aligned The way is not defined Come with me and I'l show you A little more in time Don't let yourself fall By the wayside Walked by the sea for a long time I let all my troubles sleep I look for a sign and a vision Maybe something I could keep But the night slowly drew it's Black Curtains And the mist couldn't hide my fear Though your stars are aligned The way is not defined Come with me and I'l show you A little more in time Don't let yourself fall By the wayside Ooh ooh The rolling storms of the winter Shifted the landscape of my soul In a flash in the eye of the beholder Witnessed the birth of a girl Laughter she got from her mother But not her golden skin Watch her play and I wonder Who's magic is this? Though your stars are aligned The way is not defined Come with me and I'l show you A little more in time Don't let yourself fall By the wayside Though your stars are aligned The way is not defined Come with me and I'l show you A little more in time Don't let yourself fall By the wayside

Long lost Poems Stories, paper trails Pictures that I can hold Dulcet Tears falling On your piano Three keys are gone Stay right where you are know where you've been All your tears are gone Stay right where you are Know where you've been All your fear is gone Love, Love she's gone wrapped in the night reckless love Love

This night lacks no beauty Like fireworks Like water No-one knows That our love like Venice is real Oh you just wanna feel Solo queremos sentir We were living in a bad dream Wishing all the dark clouds All would float away And time won't tell Only wonder This night is young And so easy No-one knows That our love like Venice is real Oh you just wanna feel Solo queremos sentir We were living in a bad dream Wishing all the dark clouds All would float away Doo doo doo doo ooh ooh ooh No-one knows That our love like Venice is real Oh you just wanna feel Solo queremos sentir We were living in a bad dream Wishing all the dark clouds All would float away

Dim twilight Furs evergreens Huddle for a warm goodbye A taste Then they leave The things I said Avenues and streets The beating in my chest The shuffle of your feet All we had Now is gone All we ever had Now is gone ooh Keep this light Breed violet mist Walk into the sacred light No haste, no need The dreams I had Towering scapes and beams Fleeting endlessly Showers of reprieve All we had Now is gone All we ever had Now is gone Ooh ooh

up on the mountain where time is slow up on the mountain where silence grows up on the mountain where something knows I dreamed a dream that you caught my eye I rode a train through fields and lies mmmmmm Up on the mountain where life is bare up on the mountain where silence scares up on the mountain where fires flare I dreamed a dream that you caught my eye I rode a train through fields and lies mmmmm Ooh oooh up on the mountain where seeds hide up on the mountain where treasure lies up on the mountain where peace resides mmmmmm

Lucia was a common girl a waitress by day one night under silent stars she was washed away her lover drank the sea found her where she lay only bones and polished stones and a letter that read Hear the sound Full of life Hear it like a child Fooling around He fell under her spell walked a thousand leagues finally he stopped and found a few words to speak there’s no need for reasons or even for the truth I only want one more chance I’ve been a fool Hear the sound Full of life Hear it like a child Fooling around Lover under the sea all your colour so deep Time was a cruel host who knows where to begins from the turning of the wheel to the scenes of great burning Lucia you’re a mountain a flowers scent on the wind and your note in my pocket I’ll keep till my end.. Hear the sound Full of life Hear it like a child Fooling around

life was surreal timbre sweet the whole world shook and left me here n love was a god nowhere to be seen I heard a voice from lost ships I wish on a star we could all be together make a brand new start and I wish on a star we could all flow together as one in your precious heart oooh Time was a friend as the wild wind breathed the bow it rests all rusty and free we bathed in the sun spoke for a while and I longed to know if you’d feed me once more I wish on a star we could all be together make a brand new start and I wish on a star we could all flow together as one in your precious heart and I wish on a star we could all flow together as one in your precious...

You've not lived Till you know sorrow You've not lived Till you know grace You've not lived Till you know sorrow You've not lived Till you know grace Cause love is a weeping Beautiful face So let me down slowly So i'll feel no shame Life is for giving So give me today You've not lived Till you know sorrow You've not lived Till you know grace

Driving south, Way State Forest Grassy is a place, so good to take rest see this land spread wide, far to the cliffs the ocean meets the sun travelling on the wind and the hills they wonder, when you’re coming home and the hills they wonder, when you’re coming home Your love is like a wildfire, burning fast I’ve got some troubles but they won’t last Oh your love is like the open sea born of solace, born free oh you and I know, we’ll always be yeah you and I, I know, we’ll always be lost in a clouds, way yonder heard her cry, felt strange,I was there then tiny sparks, stole the dark earth and heaven healed your wounds at days end and the mountain wonders when you’re coming home Your love is like a wildfire, burning fast,I got some troubles but they won’t last Oh your love is like the open sea born of solace, born free you and I know, we’ll always be yeah you and I, I know we’ll always be oooh, oooh Oh your love is like a wildfire, burning fast,I got some troubles but they won’t last Oh your love is like the open sea born of solace, born free you and I know, we’ll always be oh you and I, I know we’ll always be Oooh ooh

about

"This is a beautiful album" - Paul Gough

It's been two fertile years for Yhan Leal since he released his last recording. Quietly determined, Leal has come from busking nightly outside Bellingen's local supermarket, to developing a career as a bona fide touring and recording artist.

Leal’s new album, the eponymous Yhan Leal, was recorded between Leal’s home in Bellingen and in various Sydney studios with Producer Ryan Miller. The new full length album contains all the ethereal dreaminess, melodic guitars and haunting harmonies that are the halmark of Yhan's hypnotic style, but also takes a new direction with the augmentation of a full band and production on several tracks. Themes of love, loss and grief, travel, peace and freedom, are explored with a maturity and honesty, that has developed with Leal's own journey of genuine musical evolution.

Biography
“Born the son of Colombian poverty, reprised a migrant under Australia’s burnt sun. Raised by an angelic mother in wilderness scrub. The youngest of four brothers, I didn’t walk the path of a modern nuclear family. Seeking freedom from hardship my eyes and heart opened to a new way of living. Young and hungry I found my path in music.”

This is the story of Yhan Leal, a truly gifted musician with a powerful personal story. As a boy growing up in Cali Colombia life wasn’t easy. Classical guitar came naturally, working his magic on Lennon, Elvis and Richie Valens. Writing his first compositions to suit his older brother’s poetry he nurtured a pure talent for songwriting. Music marched through his teens and to the stage. The turmoil came too, and his path took route through buddhism and bouts of meditation. Having ridden the undulatory throws of life, a man emerges wise and courageous with music that moves those inescapably drawn into his circle.

There is no pigeon hole for Leal’s music, but if one was to categorise the genre it might well be Post Folk.
