Would you say we’re born to this life on our own And still claim we leave Leave the same way With no ties who then can miss you You’re ever so lonely Ever so lonely So you stand as tall as a man can be seen But your strength grows Grows with your words At no time showing your weakness You’re ever so lonely Ever so lonely Ever so lonely You’re ever so lonely And you know all the answers Now on no one do you rely Just that fear is always with you now You’re ever so lonely You’re ever so lonely Once we’re gone Ever so lonely You’re ever so lonely Some say we’re born to this life on our own And still claim we leave Leave the same way With no ties who then can miss you You’re ever so lonely Ever so lonely Once we’re gone Ever so lonely Ever so lonely Once we’re gone Ever so lonely Ever so lonely Once we’re gone It’s already over Once we’re gone Once we’re gone It’s already over And you know all the answers Now on no one do you rely Just that fear is always with you now You’re ever so lonely You’re ever so lonely Once we’re gone Ever so lonely You’re ever so lonely

Limehouse to Lechlade The tide is against us And all that we see is rubble go by Faces staring out at us Heavy-hearted loneliness Does no one have faith in Greenwich Mean Time People only understand Life as they see first hand Why they see so little who knows Oh I hope they’re all enjoying the show Let your god bless you And the hell that he puts you through Let the gods bless you Whilst life deals out what is due And I won’t deny it Refuse now to fight it The war and the grieving The colours they believe in But I won’t deny it Refuse now to fight it The blind and the bated The fallen and the hatred The corporate transition Cull of tradition All they’ll say is Nothing has changed No complaints It’s simply the same One thing’s certain Everyone’s equally to blame Wargrave to Iffley The tide is behind us And all that we see is trouble ‘longside Faces staring in at us Heavy eyes of loneliness Does no one believe in value of kind People only understand Life as they see first hand Why they see so little who knows Oh I hope you’re all enjoying the show And I won’t deny it Refuse now to fight it The war and the grieving The colours you believe in But I won’t deny it Refuse now to fight it The blind and the bated The fallen and the hatred The corporate transition Cull of tradition By world domination The greed and inflation The lack of compassion Is anything happening All they’ll say is Nothing can change No complaints Exactly the same One thing’s certain Everyone’s equally to blame Limehouse to Lechlade The tide is against us And all that I see is rubble go by

You say you’re an open book But no one can deny You hide inside the cover And I I’ll try just to take a look But each time that I do We find it an endeavour And I’ll I’ll say that’s more than enough for anyone But you’ll claim there’s more than enough in everyone Can I say what’s more than enough for anyone We’ll smile ‘cause we know The climbing frame on one another And it’s true there are certain books That are finely adorned Bound by gold and leather And they They’ll claim the eternal truth But can often incite Fire and stormy weather And they’ll They’ll say that’s more than enough for anyone But you’ll claim there’s more than enough in everyone Can I say what’s more than enough for anyone We’ll smile ‘cause we know The climbing frame on one another Climbing frame on one another So every page in any book Is carefully numbered Take a look For no one could imply They’re hard to read Abbreviation cannot hide The depth within this storyline That clearly goes to show What’s part of me You’re part of me You say you’re an open book But no one can deny the climbing frame

Don’t tell me that Don’t tell me that it’s over I’m feeling like I just cannot go there Let me down slowly Let me down slowly Let me down slowly Oh so I can breathe And from this day Your words they will haunt me It’s hard to face that you do not want me Let me down slowly Let me down slowly Let me down slowly Oh so I can breathe ‘Cause this isn’t me This isn’t me This isn’t me who stares and weeps So what’s become Of the dream we had chosen It seems to me There’s so much unspoken Let me down slowly Let me down slowly Let me down slowly Oh so I can breathe ‘Cause this isn’t me This isn’t me This isn’t me who stares and weeps And weeps Let me down slowly Let me down slowly Let me down slowly Oh so I can breathe Even if a promise is broken Please tell me that The future is open

Fire & Ashes 02:52
Fire and ashes are all that's left From the trail of passion with some regrets But there's little question that we would go there again Wild with fever through days of leisure In hot pursuit of our carnal pleasure and There’s no question that we should try it again There's more to this life than we're living I know that you wrote that somewhere The more that you try not to give in It only beckons you It simply beckons you there Fascination in equal measure There’s nothing purer and no one better than All I’ll say is that well we probably should There's more to this life than we're living I know that you wrote that somewhere The more that you try not to give in It only beckons you It simply beckons you there There's more to this life than we're living I know that you wrote that somewhere The more that you try not to give in It only beckons you It simply beckons you there

Picture 03:04
At that moment you stop and I see your face Just a second and our eyes are engaged Can we orbit the earth and evoke the sun Through this parody we’ve all become one I have a picture got a melody All that I need now is the promise that you’ll follow me I have a picture got a melody All that I need now is the promise that you’ll come with me As our feet leave the floor and we climb so high Looking upwards you can scale the sky Many follow the stars but who guides the moon Ever mindful it could all end too soon I have a picture got a melody All that I need now is the promise that you’ll follow me I have a picture got a melody All that I need now is the promise that you’ll come with me See you taking the stage into outer space You’re bewildered but belong in this place And we come down to earth through a blaze of light How’s it possible to feel so alive I have a picture got a melody All that I need now is the promise that you’ll follow me I have a picture got a melody All that I need now is the promise that you’ll come with me And we’re strangers fighting thoughts that’s all Who would ever think our lives could come together We’re strangers fighting thoughts that’s all Who would ever know we’d be this good together And we’re strangers fighting thoughts that’s all Who would ever think our lives could come together We’re strangers fighting thoughts that’s all Who would ever know we’d be this good together I have a picture got a melody All that I need now is the promise that you’ll follow me I have a picture got a melody All that I need now is the promise that you’ll come with me

No Money 02:46
I’ve got no money for fun love or anyone Got no money and there’s little I can do You know there’s people complaining Believe me I’ve been saving But there’s no money Oh I’ve got no money No there’s no money Oh I’m out of money And there’s nothing in life I’d rather do Than spend all my time and my earnings on you It seems that your friends don’t see that’s true All that they want to believe Is it’s spent on debauchery But I’ve got no money for fun love or anyone Got no money and there’s nothing I can do You know there’s people complaining Believe me I’ve been saving But there’s no money Oh I’ve got no money No there’s no money Oh I’m out of money And I I pity my life’s just getting through Nobody sees things the way that I do People would laugh if they all knew All that they want to believe Is it’s spent on debauchery But I’ve got no money for fun love or anyone Got no money and there’s nothing I can do You know there’s people complaining Believe me I’ve been saving But there’s no money Oh I’ve got no money Oh there’s no money Oh I’m out of money And I’m just getting through As if I knew My neck’s on the line So give me some time All that they want to believe Is it’s spent on debauchery But I’ve got no money for fun love or anyone Got no money and there’s nothing I can do You know there’s people complaining Believe me I’ve been saving But there’s no money Oh I’ve got no money No there’s no money Oh there’s little money And I’ve no money Oh I’ve just no money No there’s no money And I’m out of money And there’s no money No more money

Key To Life 04:33
Tell me do you remember How we felt that day Worried about the future I held you in my arms so tightly ‘Til the anguish passed away When you find life too hard Then promise me you’ll call Even the dead of night when No one is around to help You have my word that I’ll be here There is a key to life Give it time It’s the moment when you’re truly defined Living through a changing world Even so The secret is belief in your goal Maybe once even twice But it’s so much of our life And If we don’t try together Then we lose the way It’s not that we’re bound forever Knowing that you’re loved is all the strength you need to face the day There is a key to life Give it time It’s the moment when you’re truly defined Living through a changing world Even so The secret is belief in your goal Maybe once even twice But it’s so much of our life The feeling’s so strong Taking us over Burning brighter Through every emotion Climbing higher And making us whole One day you’ll face the world And not know what to say Believe me you have the answer It’s made you a fighter Braver stronger Taking us over Burning brighter Through every emotion Climbing higher And making us whole There is a key to life Give it time It’s the moment when you’re truly defined Living through a changing world Even so The secret is belief in your goal There is a key to life Give it time There’s a key to life Give it time I tell you there is a key to life Making you whole Making you whole It’s making you whole

Hope is alive And the world shines through everyone’s eyes As we all make our way Through the dark nights that battle and rage It’s hard to keep faith Hard to keep faith It’s hard when the world shuts the door in your face Nobody’s saying they want it their way It’s just through these times Well it’s hard to keep faith So we belong Though the wise shy from tagging along And the road doesn’t stop When it feels like we’ve got to get off I’m just saying It’s hard to keep faith Hard to keep faith It’s hard when the world shuts the door in your face Nobody’s saying they want it their way It’s just through these times Well it’s hard to keep faith Hard to keep faith It’s hard to keep faith It’s hard to keep faith When everyone just stands in your way It’s impossible to know what to say And even if you want it you’ll pray It’s hard to keep Hard to keep faith It’s hard to keep Hard to keep faith It’s hard to keep Hard to keep faith Hard to keep faith When everyone just stands in your way It’s impossible to know what to say Hard to keep faith

Late walking you home Taking our time Your arm in mine I’m proud that way Nothing to say We’re on our own Thinking our thoughts Sometimes mine stray Then we reach home Taking my hand You kiss me twice Then turn away And then I feel Something inside me try to say Must we say Say goodnight When everything it seems alright Can I stay Stay tonight Only want to hold you tight As the time fades Moments don’t last Weeks turn to months And years fly fast Sharing a smile Happy to laugh Feeling so sure Upon our path Time takes its toll As we all know There comes a day When we must go And as we part Our breaking hearts Finally ask Must we say Say goodnight When everything it seems alright Can I stay Stay tonight Only want to hold you tight Promise me we’ll be alright As we stroll home Everything comes to life As we stroll home Everything comes alive As we stroll home Everything comes to life As we stroll home Everything comes alive As we stroll home Everything comes to life As we stroll home Everything comes alive Lighting a fire that will last and will not ever fade Knowing each moment that’s there could be taken away Must we say Say goodnight When everything it seems alright Can I stay Stay tonight Only want to hold you tight

It Ends Here 02:35
It ends here The end is here We can’t deny it’s blown our minds It ends here The end is here And it seems to me that’s no surprise Here we have no more time There are no more answers None to find In many ways We’ve grown tired of trying ‘Cause you’ve worn us down with all your lying It ends here The end is here And it seems to me that’s no surprise So in a way we’ve been taught to hide The unpleasant side of man’s desire From what I see We cannot decide What is good of man Or monstrous crimes It ends here The end is here We can’t deny it’s blown our minds It ends here The end is here And it seems to me that’s no surprise
12.
I’ve known more women than I’ll ever remember And like all women they were oversubscribed But there’s no winning with the constant reminder Of so many women on my mind I’ve seen more sorrow than I ever expected And could easily wallow through my tragic demise But there’s no suffering with the clear recollection Of so many women on my mind You don’t know because you were not there And I won’t hear you criticise Everyone so nice There were times when I had to rest for a moment And were days when I saw two at a time But there’s no problem just as long as they’re happy With so many women on my mind You don’t know because you were not there And I won’t hear you criticise everyone so nice As I grow old I promise you I will not be lonely Despite all I know I question if I’ll die For there’s no resting with the clear recollection Of so many women on my mind

Cornerstone 03:38
This house used to be a home Used to be alive Used to be the cornerstone of our life Though the world has changed one thing remains There lies a cornerstone And wherever I go I keep searching for the cornerstone Cornerstone of my life And wherever we roam we’ll be searching for the cornerstone Cornerstone of our life It’s funny how we try to work out the faults and the reasons as time passes by So the world retires The sun bursts on fire behind a turning globe With the day now gone Where do we belong Unless we find our own And wherever I go I keep searching for the cornerstone Cornerstone of my life But wherever we roam we’ll be searching for the cornerstone Cornerstone of our life It’s funny how we try to work out the faults and the reasons as time passes by And wherever I go I keep searching for the cornerstone Cornerstone of my life But wherever we roam we’ll be searching for the cornerstone Cornerstone of our life It’s funny how we try to work out the faults and the reasons as time passes by This house used to be a home Used to be alive Used to be the cornerstone of our life Though the world has changed one thing remains There lies a cornerstone
14.
I’m sorry you’re leaving It’s hard for us all I just want to tell you Of times we smiled through life and Did we not go all of the way Did we laugh through it all Did we climb over mountains So fearless we fought Did we seek for adventure Did we find what we thought I don’t want to lose you We’re friends after all I promise I’ll think of The times we smiled through life and Did we not go all of the way Did we laugh through it all Did we climb over mountains So fearless we fought Did we seek for adventure Did we find what we thought Are all the things we never choose to do in life And all the things we want to do the same Especially what we need to find in us Before we know we seem to lose our way Put down your anger Don’t rise to it all Let us be happy Through times we smiled through life and Did we not go all of the way Did we laugh through it all Did we climb over mountains So fearless we fought Did we seek for adventure Did we find what we thought Did we seek for adventure It’s only what we ever want to do in life It’s only what we ever want to do in life Seek for adventure

about

The album, produced by Andrew Holdsworth, is Damian’s first full-length solo album since 2016’s Built For Fighting. It contains 13 original songs and is Damian's most eclectic work yet.

Known for his exploration into different genres, the songs on the album range from folk-rock to power pop, with the occasional Floydian guitar solo. The title, Limehouse to Lechlade, refers to the navigable length of the River Thames heading upstream from central London to the Cotswolds. Damian loved his many years living on river boats, and traveling the River Thames is particularly special to him. The album has an underlying concept throughout that represents our journey through life.

The album is mastered by Tony Lindgren (Billie Eilish, Opeth, Katatonia) and features a wide range of musicians, 17 in total, including Alex Reeves (Elbow), Lee Pomeroy (ELO), Michael Buckley (Glen Hansard) and Chris Hill (Jamie Cullum).

Limehouse to Lechlade was recorded during one of the most challenging periods for the music industry. Damian believes that music is about connecting with people, and after this period of separation from each other he is looking forward to reconnecting with his audience on the road..
