Your Kissing              SEM 20/08/2010

  Your kissin' was like heaven, your touch lit up my fire
  Your kissin' was so gentle, your touch was honey'd dew
  Your kissin' was so loving, your touch was so desired
  Your kissin' left me wanted, your touch left no regret

  You lit up my life like a flower in the dry lands
  You lit up my life like a saving rain
  You lit up my life like a winging butterfly
  You took me high - high - higher
  You took me high - high - higher

  Your kissin' lasts forever Your touch for me still mine
  Your kissin' lingers always Your touch imbedded deep
  Your kissin' warmed my shelter Your touch still breathes
   my skin
  Your kissin' filled my heart and soul Your touch my grief my
   dreams

   You lit up my life like a flower in the dry lands
  You lit up my life like a saving rain
  You lit up my life like a winging butterfly
  You took me high - high - higher
  You took me high - high - higher

  Your kissin' was a chosen space Your touch a silken thread
  Your kissin' spoke of sunrise Your touch the sundown gone.
  Your kissin' left me blessed Your touch the cross of hope
  Your kissin' was a wondrous path You touched my space
  for love.


  You lit up my life like a flower in the dry lands
  You lit up my life like a saving rain
  You lit up my life like a winging butterfly
  You took me high - high - higher
  You took me high - high - higher

    Running With You          SEM 22/09/2009

   Putting on my shoes
   Going out running with you
    Pushing through the rain and
    running into skies of blue
    Slipping on the rocks and
    Striding out on flats of dew
    Up through the valleys
    Around all the gullies with you.

    I like running
    Running up the river with you
    I like running
    Running down the river with you
    I like running, running,
    Running with you.

    Putting on my shoes
    Crossing all the rivers with you
    Putting on the pace
    Looking for the shortest way
    Chasing your tail and
    Falling down to my knees
    Up through the scrub and
    Down by the scree with you

    I like running
    Running up the river with you
    I like running
    Running down the river with you
    I like running running
    Running with you.
    I like running, running with you
    I like running, running with you

"The Deception"

 Was written of the run to Goats pass
 up the Deception river just west of Otira
 on the southern alps of the westcoast
 of the south island of New Zealand.
 I have participated in the"Coast to Coast" race,
 where this is part of the mountain run, 10 times.
  The race is a Multisport race, with running,
 cycling and kayaking as disiplines.
 This race or journey is not for the faint hearted
  and people from many walks of life and countries
  find their way to it. If the weather is kind the race is kind.
 If the weather is nasty the race can be full of spills,
 chills and ills.

    The Deception                24/07/2007 Steve Maitland

   
   
Slipping and a sliding hoping and a praying
    Stepping in and stepping out, running on up the creek.
    Jumping up and jumping down moving fast moving slow
    Looking for a way to go hoping for a time.
    Time to catch up time to stay out front.
    Time to stay away from the one who’s catching you up.
    The rains coming in, the winds picking up.
    So many tree roots the rivers rising up, it’s the deception.

    Running along looking for spaces, looking out ahead and
    Trying to put the pace up
    Diving in deep, Deep in the river,
    Scooping up water, Waist deep in water
    Climbing up Goat Pass, on up and over,
    It’s all down hill now, running on adrenalin

    The rocks are getting bigger the waters getting colder
    The safety crew are wrapping up, getting on under cover.
    The winds howling by the choppers flying low there’s
    sleet driving in , Oh! There’s the Mi--nga.

    Your knees are freezing solid the feet are gone from feeling
    There’s power poles a long way, a long way ahead.
    Yeah, there’s Six k’s to go the damage all done,
    there’s no one else behind you except the wounded.

    Running along looking for spaces, looking out ahead and
    Trying to put the pace up
    Diving in deep, Deep in the river,
    Scooping up water, Waist deep in water
    Climbing up Goat Pass, on up and over,
    It’s all down hill now, running on adrenalin

The Greenland rear
The Greenland front
  
                                           Knights
   Looking down from places you've been hiding,
   for the good old day's.
   Listening to the sound of the movements in the crowd,
   you want to turn away.
   Holding still the photo's of the faces that you knew,
   when the world was young.
   Hearing the sound of breaking glass
   as the buildings go down.

   Run from the sound of the gun, and the hammer going down.
   Run from the ground where you stood with your lover,
   and your guard stood down.

   On the cold winters nights, with your hands over your eyes ,
   you leave the world alone.
   Crawl down the stairs through the hole in the wall,
   to the holy ground.
   You pick up the story's that will help you to glory,
   you want to lay them down.
   Throw the song away of the kid in the corner,
   with a razor blade.

   Run from the sound of the gun, and the hammer going down.
   Run from the ground where you stood with your lover,
   and your guard stood down.

   Your father was a sailor and he sailed the world,
   he saw all the oceans and he laid all the girls.
   When the oceans turned bloody his knight fell down,
   his armour laid dying in a hole in the ground.

   Run from the sound of the gun, and the hammer going down.
   Run from the ground where you stood with your lover,
   and your guard stood down.

              Cloudy Skies

   I went down to the bluff today
   to dance with the marram on a windy day.
   Cloud came down off the hill,
   birds fly high never keep still.
   The rivers down got no rain today,
   It's been fine a couple of days.
   No people on the road no people winding
   down, ain't nobody 'round till
   whitebait day.

   When you'r born it's a love affair,
   you can't touch it but you know it's there.
   See the seasons change the light come
   and go.
   A baby in it's cradle in the rivers flow.

  You brought me down a waterfall
   held me close and stopped me drowning.
   You kissed me with a forest green,
   Aotearoa under cloudy skies.

   Fly with the wind blowin down the valley,
   Howling through the gorges, laying   
   down it's soul. Blue forests falling,
   down to the river. Almost, touching the
   water from the highlands above.
   Down from the snowgrass the Kea comes
   a-calling.
   The offshore winds are blowing, the
   big waves are crashing.
   Your running free while the Tasman
   keeps on drumming.

The Voyage of Life

  I went to Bob Katz for the mastering
  of this CD and he was instrumental in
  getting Ricardo Landaeta to mix the
  stems and Frank Basile to play the
  drums on the album.
  I will always be in debt to the three
  as each brought to the fore the
  passion which underlines my
  compositions.
  What a wonderful decision to go with
  Bob.
