about

A collaboration between Amy Duncan and David Paton.

"Potential Space” is a hypnotic fusion of city and country and indeed of the past and the present. Never raucous or forced, this is the ideal album to chill out with of an evening."

Track Name: Rare And Free
I put the bit between your teeth
I placed a saddle on your back
I pushed you over hill and heath
And raced you ragged round the track

I thought that I was taming you
But really you were making me
I thought that I was breaking-through
When clearly you were rare and free

I nourished you on sacks of oats
And never heard you once complain
I brushed along your flaxen-coat
And, worried that you must be lame

I thought that I was taming you
But really you were making me
I thought that I was breaking-through
When clearly you were rare and free

Your breath showed in the morning-cold
You cantered when you felt my hand
You whinnied then you came on bold
And galloped on the shifting-sand.
Track Name: Natural
The river is glinting at Kingfisher-bridge
The midges are flitting and, it is my wish
That you are the shimmer, that you are still living
That you are the heaven in this

I paddle in shallows that narrow and dam
The pastures are fallow and I am that land
The hand of the farmer that scatters and gathers
The pathways, the ash and the sand

The moon cools the new shoots and lumins the pools
The beautiful-blues can be curiously-cruel
But good brooks the fury and looks to the future
The humane, the wounded, the new

The dawn of the morning is fortunate-born
The borders are falling but, sorrow is long
The call of tomorrow, the jaundice, the wrong-roads
The corners, the longing, the fond.
Track Name: Enter The Forgiveness
Return an evil with some love
If you can find it in yourself
In hurting, you will become just
And, this inclines to better health

Allow yourself to keep some face
When settling your differences
Provide a little breathing-space
And, enter the forgiveness

Be lenient with each other
For in time the tables may well turn
We all share in the suffering
And find our footing less than firm

Allow yourself to keep some face
When settling your differences
Provide a little breathing-space
And, enter the forgiveness

Be slow to pass a judgement
For you know your anger will subside
By putting-down your cudgels
You will rub some balm in the divide.
Track Name: Karma (Please Don't Take Revenge On Me)
What goes around will come around
And, I shall reap what I have sown
What goes up surely must come down
The wheat and chaff, apart are blown

Its true that I have broken hearts
But, only inadvertently
And, now its my turn to be burning
Karma (please don't take revenge on me)

The prettier and better girls
Are everywhere I seem to look
I think they'd be your preference
And, it betrays me near the root

Its true that I have broken hearts
But, only inadvertently
And, now its my turn to be burning
Karma (please don't take revenge on me)

I see in you the perfect man
I'm not just looking with my eyes
My humours and my senses dance
The lies are true, its paradise
Track Name: And, Yet (This Need To Be Alone)
Allowing lust to become love
The future I've been dreaming of
Believing we deserve more
I move towards the open door

And, yet (this need to be alone)
To lock the doors, protect my home
To ward the threat off from my heart
To tell myself, we're better off apart

Allowing fear to become trust
As a reward after the hurt
Believing it to manifest
The onset of our happiness

And, yet (this need to be alone)
To lock the doors, protect my home
To ward the threat off from my heart
To tell myself, we're better off apart

Allowing dreams to become real
Accepting everything I feel
Believing in the work of charm
I move towards the open arms, that wait for me.
Track Name: Let A Little Chaos In
The good shops are all closing
But, the crowds still bustle through the haar
You're all that I was hoping for
It's Thursday (on a dying-star)

It's all become a bit too safe
Say yes, another day begins
And, everything is now in place
So, let a little chaos in

The butterflies are on the wane
Your feet are fully on the ground
I worry about what to say
It's Tuesday and, the wheel goes round

It's all become a bit too safe
Say yes, another day begins
And, everything is now in place
So, let a little chaos in

A quirk of generosity
A flurry and, it's lying-white
By dint of reciprocity
It's Monday and the sky is bright.
Track Name: Always A Way
When the path ahead is frozen
And the sky above is grey
When your heart is almost broken
There's always a way

When the mist gives the illusion
That the sun is cold and pale
When you're lost in the confusion
There's always a way

When the harshest voice has spoken
And you've heard what it can say
When the dark no longer opens
There's always a way.
Track Name: Untitled
I set you
On the river
Little-flower
Of apology
I wish you well
And, vow
To have you
Always watching over me

The water
Will remember you
Although
You are of little-weight
Tomorrow
May your soul
Re-enter
Through the children's-gate.
Track Name: Broken Beaten-down And Blue
I'm broken, beaten-down and blue
I don't know what I'm going to do

I'm walking on a lonely-road
I'm carrying a heavy-load

The days have become long and slow
I don't know where I'm going to go

I'm broken, beaten-down and blue
I don't know what I'm going to do

My mother said you will be a woman
I'm just doing the best I can

My father said hold your head up high
But, all I seem to do is cry

I'm broken, beaten-down and blue
I don't know what I'm going to do.
Track Name: Gateways
I live for the sunrise
The morning of light
A whispering-surprise
That makes the world bright

Uncertainty and loneliness
Are gateways
To a plateau
Where my empathy can save me

I live for the moment
Intent on being kind
And I spread as I go
The forgiveness I find

Uncertainty and loneliness
Are gateways
To a plateau
Where my empathy can save me

I live for each step
As I travel my mind
I give and I get
I unravel my climb.
