Slipstream 04:18
Slipstream You wait around forever Never making ground You get caught in all weathers Never make a sound It’s all happening around you But you’re in waters still You could be taking it further But somehow never will Don’t get caught in the slipstream Don’t ever lose your way Don’t get lost in a daydream That is where you’ll stay Cos I feel that it’s time for movin’ on But it’s hard when you know it could go wrong Cos you’re almost making it through But it’s up to you You wait around forever But you’re in waters still You could be taking it further But somehow you never will Don’t get caught in the slipstream Don’t ever lose your way Don’t get lost in a daydream That is where you’ll stay Cos I feel that it’s time for movin’ on But it’s hard when you know it could go wrong Cos you’re almost making it through But it’s up to you You’re almost making it, almost making it, almost making it through You’re almost getting it, almost getting it, almost making it through Don’t get caught in the slipstream yeah Don’t ever lose your way Don’t get lost in a daydream That is where you’ll stay Cos I feel that it’s time for movin’ on But it’s hard when you know it could go wrong Cos you’re almost making it through But it’s up to you But it’s up to you

Hand to Hold 03:20
Hand to Hold When the day fades into night And your world is dark and cold Don’t be scared You’ve got a hand to hold When all good times have passed you by Before you know, you’re growing old Don’t be scared You’ve got a hand to hold Cos I will be the one you need When you feel alone Just trust in me and we will see We will find that open road When all you feel are tears you cry Don’t forget what you’ve been told You won’t be scared You’ve got a hand to hold Cos I will be the one you need When you feel alone Just trust in me and we will see We will find that open road When all you feel are tears you cry Don’t forget what you’ve been told You won’t be scared You’ve got a hand to hold © Lisa Redford 2005

Be Around 03:03
Be Around I know you feel oh so very lonely I know you think no hope can be found Don’t lose faith cos through the lonely nights I will always be around I know sometimes things are not expected And you can’t get yourself up off the ground Don’t you worry cos in your darkest hour I will always be around Life doesn’t hang on a wrong or right choice It really depends on the way you feel inside It doesn’t matter anymore what all the people say It doesn’t matter anymore I know you think you’re just too tired of waiting For all your dreams to get up off the ground Don’t you worry cos in your darkest hour I will always be around I will always be around I will always be around © Lisa Redford 2005

Turn Away 03:44
Turn away This could be the only time That I have you all alone We’re much closer than before Stepping into the unknown Now my head is full of words That my mouth won’t let me say In case my feelings will be heard Scared of giving them away Never felt this way before Funny how it means much more I don’t know what you want me to say And I’m afraid that you won’t let me stay Will you comfort me when I’m lonely Will you take me in your arms Or will you turn away? Not as cool as I appear There’s a fire down below And every little thing you do Makes me more in love with you Never let my feelings show But it’s time I let you know I don’t know what you want me to say And I’m afraid that you won’t let me stay Will you comfort me when I’m lonely Will you take me in your arms Or will you turn away? Don't treat me like a fool Don’t want to be that hurt again But I think that you feel the same This could be the only time, this could be the only time Never felt this way before Funny how it means much more I don’t know what you want me to say And I’m afraid that you won’t let me stay Will you comfort me when I’m lonely Will you take me in your arms Or will you turn away? Turn away, turn away

I Wonder 03:23
I Wonder Lying lonely in my bed Thoughts of you fill my head And I wonder, how hard it used to be All the feelings, emotions inside of me And I wonder Do you think of me? Nearly tried to make you see But when I tried the worse it seemed In my mind I couldn’t tell Anyone of how I felt And I wonder Do you think of me? Oh Oh never knew how much you meant to me Never knew if you cared, never knew, Oh Oh Now I smile at those days When I lived to see your face Can’t believe it felt so strong Wrapped in daydreams for so long And I wonder, do you think of me?, think of me © Lisa Redford 2003

Red Eyes 03:43
You turn the lights down low Try to let me know What you’ve been thinking But I see it in your eyes Comes as no surprise My heart is sinking She’s got red eyes with a blue heart Always trying to impress Your thoughtlessness, is never ending She tries to understand You never take her hand So stop pretending She’s got red eyes with a blue heart You know she’s got Red eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes And she’s so blue She tries to understand You never take her hand She’s got red eyes with a blue heart You know she’s got Red Eyes, eyes, eyes And she’s so blue © Lisa Redford 2003

I’ve been thinking, the arms that used to hold me tight Now hang down by your side Sunday morning As you close the door without a word, What are you trying to hide? I’ve had enough of all the lies Now I can see it in you eyes Don’t tell me, tell me it’s all over now Cos I already know You look right through me and your thoughts are oh so far away You never let me in And oh so quiet and when you talk you mumble empty words That don’t mean a thing Maybe I’ve done something wrong Cos you’ve been distant for so long Don’t tell me, tell me it’s all over now Cos I already know Don’t tell me, love has lost it’s way somehow Cos I already know Don’t tell me, tell me it’s all over now Cos I already know Don’t tell me love has lost it’s way somehow Cos I already know © Lisa Redford 2003

Lot of Love 03:48
You say that we should talk about it I say there’s nothing more to say We could talk about it but it just won’t go away, it’s over, it’s over I know it took a long long time to get to where we are And though it took a long long time we didn’t get too far So if you’re looking for a reason, you can see it in my eyes My life needs direction not compromise Yeah, my life needs direction not compromise You say that we should talk about it I say there’s nothing more to say We could talk about it but it just won’t go away, it’s over, it’s over I know it took a long long time to make us see the light And though it took a long long time for me it wasn’t right And if you think I’m leaving, you know I’m moving on So close your eyes and then I will be gone Just close your eyes and then I will be gone It’s gonna take a lot of love, a lotta lotta love It’s gonna take a lot of love, a lotta lotta love It’s gonna take a lot of love, a lotta lotta love... © Lisa Redford 2003

Silver River 04:24
Summers’ been and gone Memory live on Thinking ‘bout the way it used to be The more and more I try To push the past aside The more I find it coming back to me And though a restless feeling grows It hurts too much to ever let it go Silver River flows by Doesn’t ask why It just reminds me of those days Silver River runs through My skies no longer blue Just becomes another shade of grey Now I’m living like A trailer for my life Waiting for my real life to start Too much time is spent Wond’ring where it went And I’m just left here where you are Still feeling like my life’s on hold Cos I miss the things we once shared so close Silver River flows by Doesn’t ask why It just reminds me of those days Silver River runs through My skies no longer blue Just becomes another shade of grey More and more each day I miss you so, more than I can say But I can’t help feeling lonely all the time You’re the only thing that’s on my mind Silver River flows by Doesn’t ask why It just reminds me of those days Silver River runs through My skies no longer blue Just becomes another shade of grey © Lisa Redford 2003

Carolina Rain We lay beside the river We watched the sun go down You watched the sunset, I wrote in my diary Imagining the next town Then tomorrow we’ll be driving Doesn’t matter where we go Oh Oh Oh Never like before, never love you more Hope we’ll always feel this way Life is like a dream when you’re here with me Hope we’ll always feel the same In the Carolina Rain Then driving through the thunder We didn’t think we’d make it The cafe and the motel, I see them clearly now And in the waterfall I fell, we laughed so hard We laughed until we cried Hope we’ll never lose the feeling The feeling is so strong Oh Oh Oh Never like before never love you more Hope we’ll always feel this way Life is like a dream when you’re here with me Hope we’ll always feel the same In the Carolina Rain We won’t ever lose the feeling The feeling is so strong Oh Oh Oh Never like before never love you more Hope we’ll always feel this way Life is like a dream when you’re here with me Hope we’ll always feel the same In the Carolina Rain © Lisa Redford 2003

Blue 03:24
Blue The wind blew hard, it was a stormy night The earth was cold, I had a chill inside Many a time I’ve been alone, but this time the stakes are grown I remember the gaze you left with me A sadder face I’d never seen Time was right for movin’ on, the wheel had turned and now you’re gone Changes come to everything You never know what each day will bring You left me blue You left me blue Sometimes you have to leave when you know the time is right But a time will come when you realise What we had was worth the fight Changes come to everything You never know what each day will bring You left me blue, You left me blue Calling you, calling you cos lovin’ you is all I know Calling you, calling you cos lovin’ you is all I know Calling you, calling you cos lovin’ you is all I know You left me blue, You left me blue You left me blue © Lisa Redford 2003

Hope Never Dies (free) 02:58
Sometimes when I’m alone There’s a place I go Among the olive trees I am free Staring at crimson skies Makes me feel so alive I can see for miles and miles But every time I try to lose myself and free my mind Peace inside is hard to find Blue seas so serene Clean air that I breathe Reminds me this is all I need Too late to change the past Our lives moves so fast Moments are what I hope will last But every time I try to lose myself and free my mind Peace inside is hard to find My hope never dies, My hope never dies... © Lisa Redford 2003

about

In November 2003 Lisa's debut album, the self-produced, released and financed 'Slipstream', was released. The album contains 12 songs all written, performed and produced by Lisa. It captured a very natural acoustic sound because she wanted the recordings to be as near to her compelling live performances as possible.

Slipstream gained widespread glowing reviews, and tracks from the album received airplay on Bob Harris' Saturday show on Radio 2 and various other radio stations around the world.

'An excellent debut-CD from an interesting Brittish artist. I long to hear her next release. If you haven´t heard her, then do!'
