    After a couple of false starts and a difficult birth the long awaited Ian Bland CD “Everything and Nothing” and his first book of poetry “Bland On Bland” have sprung forth fully formed and lustily bawling.

    “Everything and Nothing” is a cinematic special starring a motley company of individuals. The songs are each a musical story, whether semi-autobiographical gems, gleaned conversations or plucked from current events, each deliver a condensed and precise serving of observed truth.

    The Lamington String band led by Ian Bland, featuring Ed Bates, Greg Hunt, Peter Anderson, Nathan Farrelly, Mark Stanley and joined by a host of other notable musicians, as usual add their own measure of polish to this the third Ian Bland solo album.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Everything And Nothing via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Should The Whole World Be Mine

Clouds stole the glory of morning’s first light
Slowly the sun broke free of the night
I watched as you slept, not that you’d ever know
There are things I feel, but don’t always show

Time, it has weathered, my body is worn
But love is as fresh as the day it was born

Should the whole world be mine I could want for no more
Than lie here in your arms

The rush of first love and the passions of youth
I would not have them back in my bed that’s the truth
There’s no lasting warmth in the spark of desire
Coals burn hotter than flames in the fire

After all we’ve endured, all we’ve laid bare
Do you think I’d be swayed by the grey in your hair?

Should the whole world be mine I could want for no more
Than lie here in your arms

Troubles, they call on the rich and the poor
There’s no lock will hold when they knock on your door
I know your strength and I’ve lived with your fears
I’ve wept at your kindness, been stung by your tears

When you fret for the girl you can no longer be
I wish you my eyes for the beauty they see

Should the whole world be mine I could want for no more
Than lie here in your arms
