about

A big thank you to everyone who played on these songs and helped critique them during the writing process, you all rock! I’d also like to thank the people that inspired these songs, because without you they would not exist - I hope you like them.

The bed tracks for Wave of Love and She Don’t Need Him Anymore were recorded at Mixmasters Adelaide, South Australia in October 2012.

All the other recording and mixing I did in Nashville Tennessee at my studio Artec Sound except for the pedal steel which we recorded at Dave’s studio just up the road in Inglewood. Finally the tracks were all mastered by Mick Wordley at Mixmasters.

Thanks for listening. Much joy and peace to you all.

Track Name: Wave of Love
Wave of Love - Pal Sheldon

I'm gonna ride this wave of Love
Through the curl and the crash and the crush
Though it takes my breath away
I'm gonna ride it anyway

So come on baby lets not think about it
When love hits you just got to ride it
Don't wanna stand watching from the shore line
Love's not a feeling that you can stop
Just decide one day that you've had enough
It's a wave that you just can't get off It's the wave of love, come on

Come and ride this wave of Love
Through the curl and the crash and the crush
Though it takes your breath away
Just ride it anyway
Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride this wave of Love
come and ride this wave of love

You and me were like the cat and the moon
looking at each other wondering what we'll do
you can't fight mother nature
Don’t worry baby when the sea gets rough
we'll have each other and thats enough
Well hold on tight and see how far we can take it this a wave of love come on

We're gonna ride this wave of Love
Through the curl and the crash and the crush
Though it takes our breath away
We're gonna ride it anyway
Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride this wave of

Ain’t got no reason for you
just come and hold me closer
we'll let this moment take while it feels so right
cause That's not the sound of thunder
That's the sound of love down under
can you hear it surging, lifting higher

Chorus out
Track Name: If Love is a Secret
If love is a Secret - Pal Sheldon

I know every wayward curl
the guilty pleasures in your face when you're laughing
and with all my subtle words
I'm tryna tell you something

You undress me with your voice
know how to get under my skin and stay there
and with my hearts defense destroyed
I’m tryna tell you something I’ve gotta tell you

If love is a secret, then I cant keep it
its the sort of thing that I cant hide
no need to ask me difficult question
It’s like clouds after the rain flooded with sunlight
If love is a secret…
then I cant keep it

and if we get close enough to touch
it takes all my strength to hold myself together
and if I try to cover it up
That’s when I gotta tell you something I’ve gotta tell you

If love is a secret, then I cant keep it
its the sort of thing that I cant hide
no need to ask me difficult question
It’s like clouds after the rain flooded with sunlight
If love is a secret…
then I cant keep it

I cant I Cant keep it
Track Name: Goodbye Beautiful Dream
Goodbye Beautiful Dream - Pal Sheldon

You're never gonna be the one
Never be the one I wake up to
and I'll never hold you in the middle of the night
While the rain splashes off the garage roof

and we'll never walk together
never walk together arm in arm
and I'll never look again into your hazel eyes
and see how pretty they shine, in the dark


Good bye Beautiful Dream
I'll pack my hopes up no more make believing
Good bye Beautiful Dream

You probably never read
Never read the letters I sent
all those words of love written on a page
may as well been said to the wind

Good bye Beautiful Dream
I'll pack my hopes up no more make believing
Good bye Beautiful Dream
Should have left you years ago
Track Name: She Don't Need Him Anymore
She Don't Need Him Anymore - Pal Sheldon

She packed his things cleared-em up Put em in a box down the hall
Told her friends that he's a prick and wondered why she'd ever got involved
Tore his picture from the walls burnt it with the rubbish in the yard
ooo ooo ooo
She don't need him anymore She don't need him anymore
She don't need... him anymore.


He came home drunk after work and asked her what the hell was goin on
She stood up and kiked the box said it's over boy take your things were done
He got mad yelled a bit slapped her in the face and drew some blood
ooo ooo ooo
She don't need him anymore She don't need him anymore
She don't need… him anymore.


I met her on a warm summer evening
dressed up, high heels, make up a treasure to behold
and now we spend the cool nights together
her touch warms me there's no rush..... that's how she lets me know
ooo she lets me know

She don't need him anymore She don't need him anymore
She don't need... him anymore.
Track Name: Prison Walls Fall Down
Prison Walls Fall Down - Pal Sheldon

Wish I could Step in side your life and change it
Take that chain from round your neck and break it
I'd Set you free in a moment, not waste it
and see your prison walls fall down

Every night I been praying
and Every day I live is filled up with waiting
for all the promises I know God's making
to see your prison walls fall down

Walk free my friend
There's no need for fear now
There's only love.
There's only love

Gonna take your hand and hold it
cover up the past with roses
forget about all the time that’s been stolen
when I see your prison walls fall down


Walk free my friend
There's no need for fear now
There's only love.
There's only love

Gonna take your hand and hold it
cover up the past with roses
forget about all the time that’s been stolen
when I see your prison walls fall down
Track Name: Exit Wounds
Exit Wounds - Pal Sheldon

You took position on the balcony
and any man around could see
you were beautiful from your head down to your boots
And like any seasoned soldier
when taken by the enemy
I Laid down my gun and called a truce

Well you told me of her battles
the men you’d spent like cattle
on the road to your present attitude
So I offered my best salvation
and through the months of conversation
And tried to heal your exit wounds.


Just one touch from your lips
Was the only sin I wished for

But you shot me with a bullet
there was nothing I could do with it
but hold it in my heart a moment or two
then it wasn't long before it left
a whole the size of Brunswick west.
Now I'm bleeding from these exit wounds


So if you can hear me screaming
in the night watch while your dreaming
Then compassion is the gift I ask of you
and I won't pick up my weapon
cause revenge is not an option
When your bleeding from exit wounds…
