GOODBYE TO 'FOREVER' Partington/Hughes/Jones Steal the frame, feel my pain Praying on my mind, another place, another time Freeze the frame, the window pain Punishing myself I could have seen the tell tale signs And if heaven freezes over, heavy rain in Arizona… Then I’ll forgive you Time could heal, it might reveal Playing in my mind another song, another rhyme So freeze the frame, the window pain Punishing myself, I could have seen the tell tale signs And if heaven freezes over, heavy rain in Arizona… Then I’ll forgive you Breathing out and in Letting go of ‘together’ Breathing out and in Saying goodbye to ‘forever’

WEATHER WARNING Partington/Hughes/Jones Do you remember the hurricane, Moaning gales, driving rain Look in your heart, and we’re ringing the change Do you remember the raging flood the angry tides, The changing moods A look in your soul, and we’re ringing the change Oo something you played Oo helped loosen the chains Ooo something you sung was so fine Now I’m taking a trip On the freedom line And it’s feeling so fine Do you remember the weather warning Old Saint Jude he’d come a calling A look in your eyes And we’re ringing the change Do you remember the crashing seas Heavy storms inside of me A look in your soul And we’re ringing the change

ANOTHER RAINBOW DAY Partington/Hughes/Jones Stargazing man, scrapes out his billy-can Sits by his caravan- chan chan chan. Cloud watching lady picking flowers stripping daisies Blocking ears when they call her crazy – bam bam bam The sands of time, slipping through my fingers slipping through my toes I sit and cry, watching memories fading to sepia, who would know? Stargazing boy, escapes from Illinois Night sky his holy joy- chan chan chan Cloud watching girl - pictures and dreams unfurl Escapes the crazy world – bam bam bam The sands of time, slipping through my fingers slipping through my toes I sit and cry, watching emerges fading to sepia who would know? And the world says (You can run, you can hide But this crazy world lives inside. X2) Another Rainbow Day 3. Changeable skies, feeling the lows and highs No time to apologize - chan chan chan Say your goodbyes, first your born, then you dies How much you gonna compromise - bam bam bam The hands of time, slipping through my fingers slipping through my toes Again I cry, watching emerges fading to sepia, who would know?

Brave the storm, make and mend Patched and worn, sew and tend Old tin roof, can repair Sand and smooth Done with care Oh, why can this not be mended x2 Broken home, patched with wood Iron and stone, sweat and blood Old tin roof, fighting rust and rain Sand and smooth As the season change
5.
SHE'S ON FIRE Partington/Hughes/Jones She's on Fire She's on fire again Do you fan her flaming fires Give her room to ignite? Let her fly with heavenly choirs Turn the dark to light Do you damp her luminous flames To stop her burning so bright? To call halt to her dangerous games To keep her down Safe and sound Out of sight Out of mind

WALK ROUND THE BED Partington/Hughes/Jones If I had held the hammer, if you had held the clay If we had danced all together, but now we pray If only they’d bought you the black shoes Only they’d let you dance free We could have skipped light fantastic Through the trees Walk round the bed Now they walk round the bed Watch them walk round the bed If you had cried a river If you had felt my shame If we had all stopped comparing No-one’s blamed For now we are on the same side Now we’ll let go the fight Future and present’s the mirror Wrong or right Walk round the bed Now they walk round the bed Watch them walk round the bed

TAKE ME DOWN TO THE RIVER Partington/Hughes/Jones Free my day free my nights, free my wrong and free my rights Free my love, free my pain, free my pride and free my shame Free my yes and free my no, free my stop and free my go Free my leaving free my stay, free me from these boots of clay Free my girl and free my boy, free my song and free my joy Free my body, free my soul, free my rock and free my roll and take me down to the river when I'm done AND WASH MY PAIN AWAY Free our peace and free our fight, free our dark and free our light Free our hearts and free our touch, free too little free too much Free our knowing free our doubt, free our whisper free our shout Free our dark clouds free the sun, free our minds when day is done Free our girl and free our boy, free our song and free our joy Free our bodies free our soul, free our rock and free our roll And take me down to the river when I'm done AND WASH MY PAIN AWAY Free the tribe and free the land, free the nation, free the clan Free the spirit, free the faith, free the love and free the hate Free the rich and free the poor, free the windows, free the doors Free the wings and free the chains, free the judging free the blame Free the mother, free the earth, free the death and free the birth Free the body, free the soul, free the rock and free the roll And take me down to the river one more time AND WASH MY PAIN AWAY

ALL AT SEA Partington/Hughes/Jones Shipwrecked I'm all at sea No lighthouse guiding me Oh strange land Tie these hands I've never been to sea......... The wind runs free, oh take me The moon keeps on yearning The beacons keep burning I look in the distance to sea Boats never seem to sail by, don't know why I keep calling but you don't hear me The darkness is wailing The ships keep on sailing by Still don't know when you'll return Deep seas remind me My lover's not here with me Ready, my bridges to burn

BURNED AGAIN Partington/Hughes/Jones My heart is in the fire, the fire, the fire of love And I’m gonna get burned, get burned again Feet feeling the water, toes gripping the sand Arms stretched out the burning sun hand in hand in - Walking from the humdrum, running from the start Spin the lover’s spectrum opening - My heart is in the fire, the fire, the fire of love And I’m gonna get burned, get burned again No one ever told me stand behind the line I don’t run for shelter time after time after Turning from the hum drum spinning from the start Run the lover’s spectrum, opening - My heart is in the fire, the fire, the fire of love And I’m gonna get burned, get burned again

SING WITH ME Partington/Hughes/Jones Key in the lock, turn, turn, turn Still you burn, nobody home This has to stop, turn, turn, turn Still you yearn, all on your own We won’t let you down x2 Sisters, call your brothers, all believers, call your lovers Demons, hold your angels Grave to cradle we sing, we sing with me And I’ll sing with you Sing with me, and I’ll sing with you There was a place all we knew Was that everything was right Was that everything was so new Different space change the view When my day turned into night When I just couldn’t pull through

about

They met at a songwriting retreat in September 2013 at Monnow Valley Studio -wrote a song together - the first song on the album and decided then and there to from a band and created this, their first album. Garry Hughes, of Bombay Dub Orchestra, and lover of all things electronic and synth, Andy Jones, a composer and lover and player of all things of all things acoustic, including uke, tenor guitar, dulcimer, hurdy-gurdy, accordion & Gitika -vocalist, songwriter, acapella and vocal arranger, choral director.
The album is a record of our meeting. It is a spacious , hi-fi ( no drums) melancholic songs. Someone said it was Gabriel meets Enya but that no way describes the unique sort of folktronica-you can't put it in a box style - that is 3 Bucket Jones. We are, at present just putting the finishing touches to their second album. This is where it all started .Well worth many listens.
