Richard Page: Peculiar Life

Finally ordered Richard Page's new album Peculiar Life (2010).
Page played with some famous musician on various productions and worked as songwriter for many more (e.g. Madonna, Celine Dion, Al Jarreau, Leona Lewis, ...). He was lead singer of 80ies Band Mr Mister with No.1 hits "Broken Wings" and "Kyrie" from the album Welcome to the Real World (1986). His first solo album appeared in 1996 and was called Shelter Me. Now he's made a second one and although the songs aren't hits from the first moment on, they start to grow on you.

Current favourite: "The Truth Is Beautiful...", track 6, follow the link to listen to it.
Why do our hearts refuse to face the truth
That nothing goes on forever
When every day we hide
And then deny
We’re truly not together
The truth is beautiful
It heals everything
Washes all the tears away
Cleanses us like pouring rain
The truth is beautiful
Even if it hurts now to let go
In time I know we’ll find
The truth is beautiful
So what is love
This thing we’ve held so tight
So afraid that we might lose it
What good is love
If we can’t free each other
Can we free each other please
Don’t say goodbye, don’t say goodbye
Just let your heart be the guide
