You are a part of me And you will forever be But gone are the days now, when we loved There is no asking why Our love would come to die You know the reason, it's meant to be For love is of sorrow and splendour Beautiful forever But love is found and lost, we know not why Fate is a wondrous thing And faith is it's song to sing Life is a mystery, it's ok that way But love is a mystery too For all, for me and you Known through the ages to illude Yeah and pain is your teacher now You'll make it through somehow Do all you can to find the light For love is of sorrow and splendour Beautiful forever But love is found and lost, we know not why And everyone that I'm knowing All have loved and broken All have loved and lost, and hurt in time You are a part of me And you will forever be But gone are the days now, when we loved
2.
By the waters of my heart By the road where we will part In a folding of the years In the coming of the dawn I will try to linger on Though I know that I will bleed Oh my love, my darling Save me from this world Oh my love, my darling Save me from this world In the cold and damp and dark I am trying to make my mark But I'm falling on my knees In the light of all I know I will never let you go I will love you till I leave Oh my love, my darling Save me from this world Oh my love, my darling Save me from this world
3.
I will love you I'll be there in tow Though I only weigh you down Into the water All of this will go Into the water All into our home I will leave it I will leave it all behind If it means you won't be harmed again For all your dreams All your hearts desires They have withered from this way of life Into the water You will let me go Into the water All of this will flow Just a girl when I found you there one day We have known a love divine But torn apart, far too many times You will need to be alone again Into the water I will let you go Into the water I'll be there in tow
4.
I feel you there, I go within The pain of love, remembering And now it stands, the end it calls The open hearts, the open doors Bleeding through the autumn glow Winter comes and so the snow The dance of love, we know not when The unity will come to end Let it burn and let it live She feels the one, the one to give A lasting love, a life in time Someone at last to hold entwine Tender nights in moonlight glow Making love so sweet and slow The candle lights and rivers crossed The fallen leaves of lovers lost The power of the mystery The rapture and the reverie Now you see there is no end As with every love to which you bend I see the wind blowing the leaves Remembering how love deceives Into the night a naked poem Into the light you will be going
5.
We were We were here before Wandered on the shore In the cold and rain And now Now I walk alone Walking on the stone Still in the grey Oh when you know, that all of this is real It's hard to feel the light But it glows, burning ever brightly All in time you'll know That in life, all of your trials are for your growth And your heart, suffered such a pain Twill never be the same For all things change And all, all our memories past I let go at last But they won't leave me Oh when you know, that all of this is real It's hard to feel the light But it glows, burning ever brightly All in time you'll know That in life, all of your trials are for your growth And now Now that you are gone You are not the one As I believed

You love her You call her But only in your heart To know her To hold her The dreams are all you've got The winter is ending The spring is of my birth Her hair long and golden A goddess of the earth But why do I feel for a love unreal For a woman far away from me By the grace of time will we walk entwine Well I know, it's not up to me I've fallen and I've broken Like all the lovers do But with you I'm hoping, the yearning with be through But I'm just a stranger Lonely in my love It's forever a danger, surrendering your trust But why do I feel for a love unreal For a woman far away from me By the grace of time will we walk entwine Well I know, it's not up to me You love her You call her But only in your heart To know her To hold her The dreams are all you've got The winter is ending The spring is of my birth Her hair long and golden A goddess of the earth

Rumination 03:49
Take me where you seldom go I feel your heart, It's like my own There's no denying we are battle worn Our hopes are dying, our souls are torn Crawling now, to your door You love me some, but will you love me more Broken dreams And broken mirrors These lines of ours, like souvenirs I'm holding on, but trying to let go I feel you there You're in my soul Call it love Call it fate Call it powers held innate Here and now That sad refrain The passage of time breaks my heart again You're sweeping in your Sunday dress Swaying In the winds caress By the wayside By the fold It comes in waves and takes ahold Call it love Call if fate Call it powers held innate
8.
I don't fight my fate I know the reasons why Oh but it's you I'm thinking of, when the tears are in my eyes I never learned your name The courage never comes Oh but it's you I'm dreaming of, and the rapture of love Oh and you I never learned your name Oh and you A fantasy in flame Well the hardest thing to find, is a love to last your time But I believe in it still, and I know I always will Find beauty in the pain The light in spite of dark And know we all are alone, in the journey of the heart Oh and you I never learned your name Oh and you A fantasy in flame
9.
Unrequited 03:26
Out of mind It's a kind of bleed to the core Comes a love Comes a cost You're lost but not all Am I not what you're looking for Am I not what you need Is it over, are we done When we only had begun This confusion Loves illusions And we are only young Will you love me Will you love me, I'm dying to know Will I wait Will I wait, or am I to go Oh what a fool I've been Believing in love again We are wounded We are dark We are lonely and ruined in part Will you take me, or forsake me Will you hold my heart Will you love me Will you love me, I'm dying to know Will I wait Will I wait, or am I to go
10.
All in a moment there Beauty beyond compare You and your grace alight There in that summer night The treasure of love reborn From where the heart was torn All in a moment there Dreaming of you and I How you began to cry You opened up to me The pain in your memory And how I would care for you Wishing I'd feel it too All in a moment there I'm holding my heart to you Hoping you'll hold it too How we all come and go Love is a way to grow A feeling that's all divine When all the stars align All in a moment there
11.
You and I are knowing We may never be again And though it's hard for hoping I will love you till the end Living in your shelter In the walls I helped you paint You said I was an angel You said I was a saint We tried for resolution And we found it over time And now what we have, is something so sublime Baby look how far we've come Singing by the fire And staring at your eyes Crying there together And falling for desires Taking all your sorrow And taking it to rhyme Taking every lover That you ever had in time And holding on together now And working through the pain Just as somethings lost, something else is gained Baby look how far we've come
12.
And so Here in the night We are no more I leave the shore Fare thee well But you know I know Just why it is You have to go For the river flows The wise don't fight They let it go They know it's right For the world is wide And you are free In love again You're sure to be Oh but here by the road at night I can feel it all The wonder of love I see you on the stair I see you in the crowd And I see you everywhere And never more than now We danced a final time Crying as we swayed A sorrowed serenade To never be replayed For you are on your way And you know that I'm on mine Love can be so cruel But it sure can be divine Oh but here by the road at night I can feel it all The wonder of love

about

Artist Bio:

With a highlighted career spanning over a decade, Singer Songwriter Jason Lowe is somewhat a veteran of the Australian music scene.

Having supported the likes of ‘All Our Exes Live In Texas’ ’Kim Churchill’ ‘The Wilson Pickers’ ‘Jeff Lang’ ‘Eric Bibb’ (USA) ‘Dan Mangan’ (CAN)
and ‘Jeff Martin’(CAN) and hired as a session musician for artists such as ‘Lisa Mitchell’ and ‘Ruth Moody’ (CAN) Lowe is widely revered as an artist in his own right, and as a musically diverse and experienced multi-instrumentalist.

A two time ‘Byron Bay East Coast Blues And Roots’ performer, Lowe has also performed at such festivals as ‘Queenscliff Music Festival,’ ‘Mullumbimby Music Festival,’ and the‘Port Fairy Folk Festival.’

Praised by Australian blues legend Lloyd Spiegel as “Unique and sublimely talented. One of the finest lapsteel players you’ll hear anywhere on earth”
his exceptional skills as a lap slide guitarist, acoustic guitarist, lyricist, storyteller, vocalist, and performer are wholly unique and astounding.

His words and music are mesmerising, deep and profound. The musicality lush and romantic, sweeping and serene, powerful and affecting.
A timeless Singer Songwriter, Lowe is akin to such modern artists as Laura Marling and Leif Vollebekk.

Having released three full length studio albums and a highly successful debut EP, Lowe has received radio play on Triple J, PBS, RRR, and ABC radio nationally.
His most recent record ‘Sorrow & Splendour’ is widely regarded as his strongest work to date.

His song ‘When A River Parts’ was featured in a viral video entitled ‘How To Build A Dug Out Canoe’ which gained the young musician an immense amount of YouTube views, Spotify streams, and an incredibly loyal and significant European following.

Lowe is a renaissance man, moving between his music and painting, like his idol Joni Mitchell, whom he had the honour to meet during his stay in Canada in a most miraculous encounter, a tale he tells during his live shows which never ceases to amaze audiences everywhere.

Jason is currently living in Bellingen, NSW, writing his fourth studio album.
