    Winner ‘Honours’ US Storytelling World Awards
    With influences from the environmental to the fantastical children, will be drawn to these stories through the mystery and power of the ocean. The title track is an original tale of the mermaid of Byron Bay. One full moon night she hears funky drum rhythms on the beach and sees dancers twirling and leaping by a fire. She is so inspired that she swaps her mermaid’s tail for human legs so that she can dance. But will the Sea call her back? This exquisitely produced CD is a must have for all families. Featuring the music of eight acoustic instruments. There are no scary stories in this collection, so it is suitable bedtime listening for children of any age.

Track Name: East of the Sun
East of the Sun
and West of the Moon
is Storyland
Storyland
In Storyland you can do anything
Be anyone you dream in Storyland
Storyland

And if you believe in magic
And that wishes can come true
You might find that magic
Will follow you into your life
And you can make your dreams come true in real life
Just like in Storyland

It’s not just wishing,
It’s believing,
Not just believing
But working at it,
Not just working at it, but persisting
Until your dreams come true.
‘Til your dreams come true.

East of the Sun
and West of the Moon
is Storyland
Storyland
In Storyland you can do anything
Be anyone you dream in Storyland
Storyland
Aim for the stars
You might reach the moon.
Track Name: Stories to Light the Dark
Chorus:
Stories to light the dark
Stories to light our hearts
Stories to light up our way (x2)

Verse 1
We’ll take these tales and we’ll go within
To that strange and mystical land
Where dreams and myths are born
Songs and poetry are formed
And wondrous adventures abound
Chorus

Break
Oh let’s just imagine
And see where the wind takes us
Feel the endless horizon
When our hearts are singing in tune
Chorus

Verse 2
Let’s close our eyes and we’ll go within
To the place where wisdom unfolds
We’ll take these ancient threads
With our hearts and our heads
We’ll weave a new Myth of our Own

Chorus

Break
Oh let’s just imagine
And see where the wind takes us
Feel the endless horizon
When our hearts are singing in tune
