CutOut Shapes reaches through several decades ... Nogi’s cover shot taken in Notting Hill 1981 ... lyrics written 1991 ... music written and recorded 2016.


For a moment in time when the air was still
And the sound of crying was quieter still
For once when my thoughts had ceased being dreams
But a myriad colours forming shapes from inside
Like the heat of the Sun setting fire to Venus
This was a world recreated within us
I silently prayed for fear of reprisal
Imagining love could still survive us
With every kiss like a dying child
The long lost innocence the light in your eyes
I remembered a dream where I dreamed I could fly
From the death of my dreams and the passage of time
Till the sombre colours of the dying days
Turned to cutout shapes that still pass me by
