about

The Lonesome Traveller is handful of musical gems, picked from a huge song catalogue, composed by Pasko (keyboard player for Charlie McMahon and Gondwana Land) and Ray Goodwin, known from his time in the ARIA Award winning band Dragon.
This self indulgent songwriting collaboration takes the listener on a spiritual journey to the deepest depths of the human psyche, and challenges the ears with rich harmonic structure, married to wistful melodies.
Best enjoyed with a glass of red, a close friend and an open fire.

Track Name: PASKO - Step by Step
STEP BY STEP
Pasko Schravemade / Ray Goodwin

Some roads lead to nowhere
Some lead straight through hell
& some roads lead to the dreams
That you know well mmm yeh
Some live all so waisted
Circling round & round
Don’t you forget
You can always start again

Step out to the veil of darkness
& fragrance of the night
Thirsting for a distant freedom
In the glistening light
Step by step (step by step) stone by stone
Ooh I’ll never let you go

CHORUS

Weary feet, weary heart
The search goes on
Never resting, staring skyward
A journey long
Step by step (step by step)
Star by star
Oooh I’ll never let you go
Oh no

Through the night (through the night)
Through the rain (through the rain)
Through the wind (through the wind)
& the strain (& the strain)
Mountain high (mountain high)
River flow (river flow)
I will never never let you go
(X2)

Through the night, through the rain
Through the wind & the strain
Mountain high, river flow
I will never let you go
(X2)

Through the night
Through the wind
Through the pain
Mountain high
River flow, river flow
I would never let you go…
Track Name: PASKO - Highway Man
HIGHWAY MAN

Cruising up the highway with the sky

Surender to the journey

Present in the time

Search with open heart and open mind

Shaking free the shackles you can see the sign

I’m the man I want to be

Left my past behind

Free of my possessions

With freedom in my mind

Find your own direction

Never once look back

Make your soul connection, well

Thats all thats all thats all you need.

Solo

In the book of life

Who’s hand is on the pen

Who’s words are we to follow

If not our own my friend

You hear a different drummer

You try to move your feet

Some of us awake

But most, remain, asleep

Cruising up the highway with the sky

Surender to the journey

Natures Lullaby

Search with open heart and open mind

Shaking free the shackles you can see the sign

Solo

Cruisin down the highway

You keep an open mind

You’ve broken through the limits

You left the past, behind
Track Name: PASKO - Stars Live On
Stars Live On

In this passing field
Something you won’t yield
Full of uncertainty
My bed word melody
Reaches out to you
Asking you to stay
Slowly taking form
Innocence away

Find you everywhere
Empty glass of wine
Lips haunting on your sleeve
Almost tastes of mine
Thunder storm embrase
Unrelenting smile
Blue you’ve taken me
For the longest while and…

My arms they fly away
I see the light of day
My eyes they fly away
And say…

Slowly turning down
Not to cause a stur
Bumpin into you
Photographic blur
Rich like summer air
Windows rumours there
Framed in happenstance
Shame & sick romance

My arms they fly away
My arms they fly away
I see the light of day
I see the light of day
My eyes they fly away
My eyes they fly away
and say and stay…
All the stars Live on
All the stars Live on oh
My arms they fly away
I see the light of day
I see the light of day
My arms they fly away
My arms they fly away
and say and stay…
All the stars Live on
and on , and on, and on, and on
On n’ on n’ on n’ on n’ on n’ on n’ on
The stars, the stars , the stars live on
And on n’ on n’ on n’ on n’ on
Track Name: PASKO - Thunder Clouds
THUNDER CLOUDS

Thunderclouds of wild emotion
Hurricanes of anger slowly drain away

The beasts of bitter torment
The hounds of hatred flee the dawn of day

How well do I remember
The pain of separation
But as the months slip by…

Now know how much I love you
Enough that I could leave you
Even when my heart said no

I let you go
I let you go
Let you break away
To free your soul
I just broke away the mould
Took my hand of the control

I let you go
I let you go
Y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know
I had to let your spirit flow
I let you go
I let you go
Y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know

Five years down the track
I saw you at the airport
With your baby in your arms
You’d never looked so happy
It was just the sign to send you on your way.

To let you go
I let you go
Let you break away
To free your soul
I just broke away the mould
Took my hand of the control Oh

Common everybody
common common common common
Join the people of the street
common common common common
Oh there’s a marchin band playing
This freedom is a symphony
And it’s waiting here with in your reach

I let you go
I let you go
Y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know
I had to let your spirit flow
I let you go
I let you go
Y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know


I let you go
I let you go
Y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know
I had to let your spirit flow
I let you go
I let you go
Y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know y’ know
Track Name: PASKO - Lonesome Traveller
LONESOME TRAVELLER

Leaves crackle in the gloaming
The noises of the night
Footsteps on the road unkno-wn
Walk the other way
The way of the sages
Through all of the ages

You turn another Page
A parchment without ink
A story never written
Of a love forbidden
You’ll find your way home
We all arrive alone

Deep Deep in your soul your a lonesome traveler
Deep Deep in your soul on a sunset trail, you wind

Yahweh & Mohammed followers at peace
Pull the common thread
The path we walk the least
On walkabout at last
On a long & winding path
Oooh


Deep Deep in your soul theres a lonesome traveler
Deep Deep in your soul on a sunset trail,
Deep Deep in your soul theres a lonesome traveler
Deep Deep in your soul on a sunset trail, you wind
Track Name: PASKO - Temple of Stone
TEMPLE OF STONE

Up high over street Lamps glistening
She stands a strange girl pondering
I wonder why she stands all alone
In a world all of stone.

Ch)
Look down over time & humanity
She smiles with a view of mortality
She feels no pleasure nor pain
Not in her temple of stone.

solo

Like ants in the streets our busy lives
And sand in the wind our cities rise
She wonders why so serious
Mortals of mere flesh & bone

Ch)
Look down over time & humanity
She smiles with a view of mortality
She feels no pleasure, no pain, no sorrow, nor shame
Not in her world made of stone
Not in her temple of stone.

Bridge
Standing in the middle of the rhythm of the seasons
She never need a reason why
She’s in the moment, time and again

When your feet are firmly anchored to the pillars of the earth
You can weather all the testing times
She never tyres cause time is her friend
And so she stands

Look down over time & humanity
She smiles with a view of mortality
She feels no pleasure nor pain
Not in her temple of stone.
Not in her world….
Track Name: PASKO - No Mind Games
NO MIND GAMES

Cant play mind game
Don’t need time frames
No guilt, no blame
My heart can’t wait
Our lifes joy came

We'll make time wait
No rules to break
No pain, No gain
My way your way
We’ll make our own fate

Hey there babe would you like to find
The secrets of the Universe
We’ll find them if we take each others hand
We can travel to another world
Where hope is found and love will last
I promise I will not let you down

Take a breath, Lets go
Into the sky, we’ll flow
Walk on air, feed on love
Cause we don’t need nothing
Got it all don’t need nothing
Ive got you don’t need nothing with love

Hey there babe would you like to find
The secrets of the Universe
We’ll find them if we take each others hand
We can travel to another world
Where hope is found and love will last
I promise I will not let you down
Hey there babe would you like to see the universe
Take my hand in the dark
And we’ll float out from this city
Take my hand we can step into the universe
Live our lives in endless night
Look down on all thats pretty
