about

The Feline Dream Brighton, UK

The Feline Dream were a collaboration between David 'Deakie' Davis and Nicholas 'Mermaid' Carlisle, a pair of gingers from County Down.

The band met a wretched demise in December 2003, however due to the invention of the phonograph by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville on 25th March 1857, their music can still be enjoyed today.

Track Name: Beachcomber
A southern wind
Blowing in from the ocean
Overcast, where the land meets the sea
Beachcomber
Sifting through the finer fragments
Still you take what you can,
well I just want to tell you

CHORUS(x2)
One day we made
A promise, just to break it
So don't you say
It got complicated

Beachcomber
Wandering through sand and shingle
Vagabond, the only way to pass the time
The broken sound
Of voices drowning in the white noise
Here I am, take my hand
Pull me from the wreckage

CHORUS repeat
Now you're on your own
Track Name: At A Standstill
v.1
People speeding by they leave me stranded
At a standstill in the rain
I just sit and count the minutes passing
But for me there's no loss and no gain

v.2
Push and drive, so many ways to play now
Feel the rush against my skin
Maybe I will sit and watch the others
Cars that sigh down doppler wind


Squeeze the blood from the stone
You have to get there on your own
and there is no-one over the horizon

Squeeze the blood from the stone
You'll never make it on your own
Dream until they find you with the cursor
But you know your game is done
Track Name: Hilltop & Heartbeat
Out here you see for miles
Out here we touch the sky
Out here the inside grows
Out here where no-one knows
...Where we are... aah-aah...

We can steal away No-one will see us go
Leave the rest behind No-one need ever know
Leave behind the grey We don't need them now
And be with your own kind We're gonna show them how
And when we're on our own You can take my hand
That's when we feel at home Flying over land
Forget your life before Forget all the rest
You've come through that door We know what we like best

Yes we'll grow wings and fly
Heartbeat never dies
Horizon stretches wide
We start to turn the tide
See them all... so far down below...

The trees beneath so green Start to believe
Rivers flow between Never want to leave
Hiltops race below Heartbeat racing too
See the sunset glow there's just me and you
To end a perfect day And enter the night
Your troubles melt away Better hold me tight
Track Name: Lull
Early morning
make your way home
Cross the motorway
glowing alone
Rays like crystal shine down
from above
Bathed in orange
Welcome the sun
Track Name: At Night, The Pylons [Bonus track]
[instrumental]
Track Name: Mesmur (Nick's demo) [Bonus track]
[instrumental]
Track Name: Beachcomber (long lost demo) [Bonus track]
Beachcomber - wandering through sand and shingle...

A southern wind
Blowing in from the ocean
Overcast, where the land meets the sea
Beachcomber
Sifting through the finer fragments
Still you take what you can,
well I just want to tell you

CHORUS(x2)
One day we made
A promise, just to break it
So don't you say
It got complicated

Beachcomber
Wandering through sand and shingle
Vagabond, the only way to pass the time
The broken sound
Of voices drowning in the white noise
Here I am, take my hand
Pull me from the wreckage

CHORUS repeat
Now you're on your own
Track Name: Where the Land Meets the Sea (David's 17½ years later mix) [Bonus track]
(look at the kite!)

Now and then I'd watch the kites above
Now and then I'd hear the waves below
Now and then I'd smell the salty breeze
Now and then where the land meets the sea
