Stranger To Me Now Sarah Caltieri Chorus A stranger to me now, what happened? Have we lost our thread somehow, or could there still be a strand? Verse 1 Too many plans turned into distant dreams, But you restored the vision of loving that I used to believe. So I just don’t understand. You were the only one in my life, but I just couldn’t make you see my heart was always true to you. You didn’t believe in me. Chorus A stranger to me now, what happened? Have we lost our thread somehow, or could there still be a strand? A stranger to me now, do you know me any more? A stranger to you now, and every day it’s killing me more and more. Verse 2 You’ll never know how much you swept me away. But if I could have told you more, what did you want me to say? because it is just so hard to do, when you’re always second best. But it wasn’t your fault I could never come first. Now I just hope your soul’s at rest. Chorus A stranger to me now, what happened? Have we lost our thread somehow, or could there still be a strand? A stranger to me now, do you know me any more? A stranger to you now, and every day it’s killing me more and more. Bridge You showed me how to hear your name Don’t know why I couldn’t do the same. But you said you’d seen my face in a dream before. Well can you hear me? Can you hear me calling you now I’m no longer there any more. Chorus A stranger to me now, what happened? Have we lost our thread somehow, or could there still be a strand? A stranger to me now, do you know me any more? A stranger to you now, and every day it’s killing me more and more. A stranger to me now.

Flying 04:22
Flying Sarah Caltieri Verse 1 It was all so clear, when she was a young girl, had a vision of where she wanted to go. But something went wrong, ended up losing her way, couldn’t find home, or where she needed to be. Is that why she’s here now? Don’t things happen for a reason? Each step she missed took her further than she knew. Chorus Now she’s flying, so high she’s soaring, over places she’s never been before. She’s flying , so high she’s soaring, and she’s seeing things she forgot to see, forgot to see before. Verse 2 All the simple things that she seemed to ignore passed straight through her and she didn’t even know. Too caught up in a web, so tangled up in her own mind, couldn’t find a way out, or read between the wire. Then she realized, the simple things help us grow. Now each breath she takes makes her richer than before. Chorus Now she’s flying, so high she’s soaring, over places she’s never been before. She’s flying , so high she’s soaring, and she’s seeing things she forgot to see, forgot to see before. Verse 3 Now when the road feels long, her feet don’t know which way to turn, she knows it’s okay, Mother Nature’s coming round. And when she holds out her hand, this time she’ll reach out, leads her through the dark, back to where she belongs. Because each breath she takes makes her richer than before… Chorus Flying, so high she’s soaring, over places she’s never been before. Yes she’s flying , so high she’s soaring, and she’s seeing things she forgot to see, forgot to see before. Flying, so high she’s soaring, over places she’s never been before. She’s flying , so high she’s soaring, and each step she takes takes her further back, takes her further back, further back to where she finds her home.

Higher Than Before Sarah Caltieri Verse 1 Do you know how it feels inside? When you have a big part of your life denied? To sit and wonder ‘What will I do? Is it time to give up, or will I see it through?’ Well I’m not going to let you beat me lately, I know that someday maybe… you’ll take me… Chorus Higher than I’ve been before, Higher, going to open every door, Higher than I’ve been before. This time I know I’ll see it through. Verse 2 When I think of you, it brings me a smile, And I may run away, just for a little while. Don’t you worry though, ‘cause I’ll always be there, And the love you give it’s going to get me somewhere. This fear I fight will fade to memory. I know that where we go is from the things we’ve seen… that take us… Chorus Higher than we’ve been before, Higher, going to open every door, Higher than I’ve been before. This time I know I’ll see it through. Verse 3 When nobody knows how it feels inside, And you’re suddenly standing alone, The emotion you ride, it tries bringing you down. Yes it’s hard, but you’ve got to stay strong. I know with you I’ve come this far in life, but without you I can put up a damn good fight. I’m going to take it… Chorus Higher than I’ve been before, Higher, gonna open every door, Higher than I’ve been before. Higher… This flame will take me Higher than I’ve been before, Higher, gonna open every door, Higher than I’ve been before. This time I know I’m gonna see it through. I know I’m going to see this through.

Just For Today Graham Jones, Sarah Caltieri and Bryan Jones Verse 1 For Today, I won’t get mad, Sit around and think isn’t this sad? I don’t want to, I don’t need to – Say goodbye to it all. For today I’ll just drink herbal tea, Instead of pounding myself with coffee. Because I don’t want to, I don’t need to – Say goodbye to it all. You can’t just stay here all your life. Want to settle down some day, Make sweet love with my soul mate, Watch the sunrise because it’s true, Play a little song or two. Chorus If only for today, Going to lose my mind. If only for today, Take a little time. If only for today, Use my ticket to ride. Verse 2 For today I’ll just do silly things, Like take a stranger’s hand and go dancing. Because I don’t want to, I don’t need to Say good bye to it all. For today I’ll just be glad and take it easy Because I know it’s all mad. And I don’t want to, I don’t need to With all my friends by my side. You can’t keep running all your life. Want to settle down some day Drink some tea with my soulmate Watch the sunset because it’s true, Get a little dog or two. Chorus If only for today, Going to lose my mind. If only for today, Take a little time. If only for today, Use my ticket to ride. Bridge If only for today, Going to lose my mind. If only for today, Take a little time. If only for today, Use my ticket to ride. Verse 3 You can’t just stay here all your life. Want to settle down someday, Make sweet love with my soul mate, Watch the sunrise because it’s true, Play a little song or two. Chorus If only for today, Going to lose my mind. If only for today, Take a little time. If only for today, Use my ticket to ride. If only for today, Going to lose my mind. If only for today, Take a little time. If only for today, Use my ticket to ride. If only for today, If only for today, If only for today, Use my ticket to ride. Just for today.

Time Heals 04:38
Time Heals Sarah Caltieri Verse 1 Words leave me speechless, I’m not sure what to say. Climbed aboard the ship of love, And hoped to sail away. But it seems the winds were too strong, and now we’re lost in the sea. Chorus Time heals, takes the pain away, Time heals, then maybe, could sail away. Verse 2 Bumped into those glaciers and the shards were far too big to take. The sky and all the stars fell down, The moonlight was the only escape. So I sailed on, but couldn’t find you there, Now the scars take your place Chorus Time heals, takes the pain away, Time heals, then maybe, Time heals, Time heals, OOhhhhhhhh Verse 3 Thank you for all you gave, For the nights that turned to day. Thank you, for when I couldn’t be saved And for everything we made Chorus Time heals, takes the pain away, Time heals, then maybe, OOhhhhhhhh Time heals, Time heals, OOhhhhhhhh When time heals, takes the pain away, When time heals, then maybe, OOhhhhhhhh We could sail away.

No More Tears Sarah Caltieri Verse 1 Past has gone, this moment’s here, Future’s not arrived, so what’s to fear? I’m on this trail, there’s no escape. But the road looks bright, and I’m on my way. And the lessons were hard, but I let them go with a lot of love. “Cause that’s what takes me higher… Chorus No more tears, only sunshine through the rain, ‘cause that’s what takes me higher. No more fear, just an open doorway in my mind. ‘Case that’s what takes me higher. Verse 2 Look all around, what do I see? Anything I want to, surrounding me. Can’t change the world, or what it believes, but when I look in the mirror, I’ll believe in me ‘cause the moment is real, and I can only do the best with what I’ve got, But that’s what takes me higher. Chorus No more tears, only sunshine through the rain, ‘cause that’s what takes me higher. No more fear, just an open doorway in my mind. ‘Case that’s what takes me higher. Bridge It’s beautiful, so beautiful. Verse 3 Past has gone, this moment’s here Future’s not arrived, there is nothing to fear. ‘Cause I’m on my trail and I pave my way. Can’t die for tomorrow when I’m living today. The world is a stage and I embrace my part with all I’ve got, ‘cause that’s what takes me higher. Chorus No more tears, only dancing in the rain, ‘cause that’s what takes me higher. No more fear, just an open doorway in my mind, ‘cause that’s what takes me higher.

The Busker 05:45
The Busker Sarah Caltieri Verse 1 Looking out of the window pane at the world going by. Footsteps over Waverly Bridge, as the birds sing in the sky. All the leaves are starting to grow again as the seasons change once more… Chorus I could swear there’s an angel watching, watching overhead. Verse 2 So much talking on the radio About who when what and how? Where has all of the money gone, Who really holds the power now? Chorus I could swear there’s an angel, watching, watching overhead. I could swear there’s an angel watching, Aaaow watching overhead. Overhead. Oooohh Watching, Aaaow watching overhead. Overhead. Verse 3 Did the fotune teller get it right? Did she really play those cards? As the sun sets over Waverly Bridge and the busker, the busker plays his songs… Chorus I could swear there’s an angel, watching, watching overhead. I could swear there’s an angel watching, Aaaow watching overhead. Overhead. Oooohh Watching, Aaaow watching overhead. Overhead. Oooohh Watching, Aaaow watching overhead. Overhead. Oooohh, Oooohh… Overhead. Thank you Love was when you gave yourself so selflessly, The wisdom you shared when time meant nothing at all. Love was when you weren’t afraid to laugh or cry Because you were just being you. Love was the branch you held out Even when you thought it was too small. Every branch broke every fall. Love was the greatest thing you ever gave Through the off-beaten track. Love’s like a candle and burns as one. Because of you this album will always burn strong! You all know who you are {>

If I Said 04:34
If I Said Sarah Caltieri Verse 1 If I said, I don’t really own a lot And that a walk in the park would do just fine. If I said, I’m not really one for big fast cars. A mini’s about the size of mine. Would you love me for everything I’ve got, Even if I couldn’t always be on time. Would you love me for everything I’ve got, Even if I don’t always drink red wine? If I said, sometimes I get a little grumpy, But I don’t mean to cause anybody harm, Would you love me for everything I’ve got, even if It was just that time of the moon? Chorus And what’s the point of a big old house, If there’s nobody at home? And what’s the need for a zillion cyber friends If we’re forgetting how to speak through the phone? AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, Verse 2 If I said, I don’t always like reading some magazines, They’ll only imply I’m not thin enough, And if I said, Don’t always like wearing makeup, but sometimes I’ll stick a good dress on, Would you love me, for everything I’ve got, Even if I didn’t always look the part? Would you love me, for everything I’ve got, even if I’ll keep my curves right where they are? Chorus And what’s the point of a big old house, If there’s nobody at home? And what’s the need for a zillion cyber friends If we’re forgetting how to speak through the phone? AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, If I said, If I said, If I said, If I said, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, If I said, I don’t really own a lot And that a walk in the park would do just fine.

Something I Couldn’t Say Sarah Caltieri Verse 1 There was something I couldn’t say and the train left the platform that day, But there were still battles to be sung and we were heading up different lines anyway. How a memory can still feel so clear… Chorus Ooohhh did you feel the same? Oohh maybe we’ll meet again. Verse 2 Took a walk down the wild side. That funny old thing they call life. Sometimes wondered how I’d see it through From the shadows back to light. It was a crazy, crazy night… Chorus Ooohhh did you feel the same? Oohh maybe we’ll meet again. Ohho, Ohhh, Ohhh… ohho. Ohho, Ohhh, Ohhh… ohho. Ohho, Ohhh, Ohhh… ohho. Ohho, Ohhh, Ohhh… ohho. Verse 3 Familiar faces come and go. Some stay awhile and join the score, Some come around, make me wonder was it me that closed a door? Chorus Ooohhh did you feel the same? Oohh maybe we’ll meet again. Ohhh I’ve wished on all the stars, And (ohhh ) sent them down the river to you.

Naked Lullaby Sarah Caltieri Verse 1 What do you say, one fine day, Time for a change, time to go your own way. No need to try, too many goodbyes. Time stands still when you want it to. Chorus And the raindrops are falling on the cobbled streets outside, Each one telling a different story to the cars rolling by. Don’t wake me from this dream, Oh naked lullaby. Naked lullaby. Verse 2 Autumn breeze, watching me. I know you know what I’m thinking Chorus And the raindrops are falling on the cobbled streets outside, Each one telling a different story to the cars rolling by. Don’t wake me from this dream, Oh naked lullaby. Naked lullaby. Oh naked lullaby. Naked lullaby. You wake me from my shame, oh naked lullaby.

A collection of autobiographical songs spanning ten years. A collaborative journey of highs, lows, friendships, love, break-ups, and Rock 'n' Roll! Loved every minute of it!

Because of you...
written by Sarah Caltieri (2006)

Thank you...
Love was when you gave yourself so selflessly,
The wisdom you shared when time meant nothing at all.
Love was when you weren’t afraid to laugh or cry
Because you were just being you.
Love was the branch you held out
Even when you thought it was too small.
Every branch broke every fall.
Love was the greatest thing you ever gave
Through the off-beaten track.
Love’s like a candle and burns as one.
Because of you, this candle will always burn strong!

You all know who you are :) xx
