A BETTER PLAN (I THINK YOU'RE GONNA NEED)

I always thought about the conversation going round

You’re always lurking in my dreams, no peace for me it seems


When time and distance only makes it worse

Switched on and focused to break the curse


Finely balanced

Then falling to the ground

I’ve imagined

Your soft words, your eyes of brown


With some exposure to the change I’m feeling vulnerable

It’s a release to say you lost, but you can have it all


You brushed my skin and left a bruise inside where you can’t see

They’re only words, but words can damage worse than anything


How we managed

I couldn’t disagree

Then you vanished

You crept away from me


If I were candid I would say you’re drifting out of bounds

You’re up in orbit, left the game, no contact with the ground


And I was thinking that you’re gonna need a better plan

Cut down, no marks, of you I wash my hands

YOUR FATE IN MY HANDS

You told me that your fate was in my hands

Forgive me cos I didn’t understand

Tripping over pillows on the floor

I know that you don’t need me anymore


Not easy when your head is in a daze

I tried to say it in so many ways

You made it hard, but you hurt me to the core

You showed me out and then you locked the door


Though I tried so hard to make a go

I think there’s something that you should let me know

And even if your friends are on your side

You couldn’t say your act was justified


Now I see you won’t return my calls

I’m haunted by the photos on the wall

The truth be told this one is down to me

I know that I’ll regret this endlessly


You used to keep my letters in a box

Your sense of style could be unorthodox

I stood beside you in the rain

Like pearls of morning dew appear again


Prevailing on my patience to the end

That chooses right, but never finds a friend

It’s time to go I stagger to my feet

The sadness of a story now complete

THINK OF THE SUN

Think of the sun

It rides up in the sky

It warms our hearts

And brings relief


From drops of rain

Can mighty rivers flow

That spark a chain

From hill to reef


Across the land

Vitality is interweaved in the seas


In depths that we can't reach

The change that we all need

We're all wrapped up

We're part of one reality

WHEN I LOVED YOU

It was funny what you say
It don’t matter anyway
If you think that you are right
Call me out then start a fight
You were always there for me
Now it’s time to set you free
Cos I can’t take this no more
Tired of falling to the floor
As I told you once before 
It’s not funny anymore
You keep tearing into me
Cos your love is counterfeit 
And you make me want to cry
Don’t believe your alibi
If you think that I was wrong
Why’d you lead my heart along
So you’re squeezing out a tear
Make this feeling disappear 
Need a change of company 
Cos you ain’t no good for me
When I loved you 
When I loved you
When I loved you 
Now the feeling’s dead and gone

CONNECTING ME WITH YOU

Now I'm glad to say that we're on our way and the time keeps moving on

Though the world may change, we just stay the same and it proves there's nothing wrong


Shout loud, try to ride along

Would you wait for me even for eternity?


Now age puts a weight on me and it took me by surprise

When my body aches and my fingers shake and I worry all the time

All the songs I've sung, all the books I've read

Well they means much to me

Through the ice and snow, when it's time to go and we move from A to B


I'm proud of our legacy

Would you wait for me even for eternity?


Compatible, combustible, inert

All rise, no fall

You get what you deserve

Gold rings, it's focusing

Completely baffled

Who cares who's listening?


Nothing's ever perfect and often through the years

I've held you close within my arms and wiped away your tears

And despite the conversation, believe me cos its true

I know there's always something connecting me with you

THE WHOLE WORLD'S SINKING

Come and join me here behind this smoke-stained table Ill try and read your mind and make you happy if Im able I have got the need you see to count from five to ten When I reach the end Ill go right back and start again  
My hands start shaking, will my heart stop breaking? Maybe if you marry me I'll choose my words most carefully The whole world's sinking got the whole town thinking You carry on the way you are, I'll kill you where you stand  
Whats the use denying it you know its true baby I'm telling you for certain so you'll know its not a maybe With your eyes of diamonds and your shoes of leather The only thing I need, I want's to spend our lives together  
My hands start shaking, will my heart stop breaking? Maybe if you marry me I'll choose my words most carefully The whole world's sinking got the whole town thinking You carry on the way you are, I'll kill you where you stand
In my eyes you recognise my feelings It's no surprise, carry on explaining  
You could drive across the world or hang there in suspension You could travel time or break into the 4th dimension You could read the pages of a book I've never read You could do all this or turn your back on me instead 
I could sit upon your knee and write myself a letter But knowing things could get that bad I would rather soon forget her I will end my days by being buried in the ground I'm sure the feeling's just the same not having you around  
My hands start shaking, will my heart stop breaking? Maybe if you marry me I'll choose my words most carefully The whole world's sinking got the whole town thinking You carry on the way you are, I'll kill you where you stand 
My hands start shaking, will my heart stop breaking? Maybe if you marry me I'll choose my words most carefully The whole world's sinking got the whole town thinking You carry on the way you are, I'll kill you where you stand

TELL ME

Well it's funny how things like these all end the same

And who's that leaving he looks familiar? 

I don't care anyway

It might be me that's calling

I'll do my best to please

But you'd best believe my warning

What's become of me?


I can't believe the things you say

I can't believe your eyes

It's no use to me anyway

'Cos this time it's goodbye

Looking at the pictures that you sent me on the wall

I see a twisted crippled figure and it looks like he might fall


Tell me, do you want me? 

Do you need me here?

Did you see the darkness fall upon me? 

He don't want me its another

Save my soul for someone (if that someone could be you)


Round and round see the world how it's changing

Its colours blend no red no blue, no finer hue

We must concur because it's all absurd

You might listen to me, but you don't hear a word

Wide-eyed, wide-legged and topless, it's spotless

But the saddest thing of all

If I tell you  I'll fall

YOUR IGNORANCE

Spent the night with apologies, but you can't bend and you can't break me
You can scream and fight it wouldn't make it all right
Cos you can scar and you can't make me
Your ignorance, your stupid blindness and your mis-placed kindness
You could have gone far, now you'll never get to see
You think you act so right, but you never think twice
And you can hurt and you can shake me
But I know in my mind that you're finished this time and you twist you can't escape me
You'll never know the pain you caused, the hurt the sorrow.
You've ended it all but you're much too blind to see
If I said it once I said it a thousand times, but you don't believe me
You're so tied up with your selfish misery
So maybe some time when you're looking back there'll be a small reminder of better times, but it's just a memory
So on you go with your precious words and your incense burning
It's not really loving, it's just putting on a show
So why don't you call, cos you're just to scared to make your mind up
Instead of something, you say nothing at all
Your ignorance, you stupid blindness and your mis-placed kindness
Instead of something, you say nothing at all

THE EUCALYPTUS CRACK

The fleshy smiles of tattered gowns

You're tearing it up and it's pulling me down

You never wanted me to

I've seen it in your eyes, I've heard the lies of our sultry, seedy demise, so I let you go

But it won't be long till you're coming back

The crunchy eucalyptus crack

I'm thinking about it all the time


I  count the minutes of the day cos more or less I've got nothing to say

You never wanted me to

I know you make me want to smile again and hold my hand and to feel the sun coming down again I won't let go, not even if you need me so

Cos I fell apart bursting at the seams at the sweaty scent of your secret dreams

Your hidden charms worn on your sleeves, they branded me

black-white-thinking-ways-poisons-your-p

DON'T THINK ABOUT ME

Don't stop to think of me on the highest mountain on the widest sea

I'll be sitting here thinking all about myself and I'll be sitting here thinking almost endlessly

Don't think about me when you leave tomorrow I can bear the pain

It doesn't really matter if you're wrong or right cos it doesn't really matter to me anyway


I laughed you cried (Five times ended five to one, I know I'll feel the pain forever))

Nothing really matters now we said goodbye. Sitting here thinking 'bout the times we spent together

I laughed, you cried, nothing really matters now we've said goodbye. I'll feel the pain forever

(My dreams were laying in the sun. A fine time to be together)


I see you passing with the type of girls who would never ever talk to me 

I feel I'm slowing down and it must be getting late I think

So all that's left tonight is to wander home alone

But it's not so bad cos it's times like these that I'd rather be on my own


I laughed you cried (Five times ended five to one, I know I'll feel the pain forever))

Nothing really matters now we said goodbye. Sitting here thinking 'bout the times we spent together

I laughed, you cried, nothing really matters now we've said goodbye. I'll feel the pain forever

(My dreams were laying in the sun. A fine time to be together)


Well let me tell you now

Don't stop to think of me on the highest mountain on the widest sea

I'll be sitting here thinking all about myself and I'll be sitting here thinking almost endlessly

Don't think about me when you leave tomorrow I can bear the pain

It doesn't really matter if you're wrong or right cos it doesn't really matter to me anyway


I laughed you cried (Five times ended five to one, I know I'll feel the pain forever))

Nothing really matters now we said goodbye. Sitting here thinking 'bout the times we spent together

I laughed, you cried, nothing really matters now we've said goodbye. I'll feel the pain forever

(My dreams were laying in the sun. A fine time to be together)

DON'T SAY ANYTHING

Now you’re leaving girl, I’ve got you on my mind

So many times I've turned my back

So many times I've been unkind

For a moment, I'm back there in your heart

The same old dizzy feeling that makes me cry now we're apart


But I don't say anything

If it wasn't for me then this wouldn't have started, but now you're gone and now we're parted

Don't, don't say anything

The kind of love I was looking for was the kind of love you brought to my door


I think about you, it's funny how I find

The little things just past me by

You’ve left me dumb and you’ve left me blind

Now the past girl is blowing in the breeze

Now the world ain't safe for me, you got me down upon my knees


But don't, don't say anything

Your party dress, your wistful smile

We travelled the stars for little while

Now don't, don't say anything

You looked at me in a startled way that'll stay with me till my dying day


Cracked and crooked are the ways of passing time

Written on a pavement, it's shattering my mind


My deceiving girl has left you in my past

Kissing you and wondering

I think I was first, now I know I'm last


All the letters written lay there in the floor

Oh my heart is broken

Cos the truth is I can't take no more


Don't, don't say anything

If I'm not the boy that you thought I was given have a chance then you'll change your mind 

But don't, don't say anything

Well I hope and pray that maybe some day, I'll see you walking back my way

But don't, don't you say anything

Through the tears I cry, every night I lay

Not to see your face I'd surely die

OH NOW

Bababababababah


You're making it sound funny

You're trying to take my money

You're taking it out on me

I ran from my home now

I feel so alone now

Since one and one is making three


In the middle of a cold and empty space

You took me to the limit and you pushed me on past it

I never want to see your face

Oh now


You should really take your time now there's no really no need to rush

For what is done is done now

You really don't need to fuss


She put me in a corner, her friends they tried to warn her

I know I wanna bury you

Well there's things about me that you need to know, and I know that you won't approve


You took me home and we were talking, you told me all about yourself

You're thinking that I'm crazy

But thinking makes you lazy

You're finding it from someone else

Oh now


You're making it sound funny

You're trying to take my money

You're taking it out on me

I ran from my home now

I feel so alone now

Since one and one is making three


She put me in a corner, her friends they tried to warn her

I know I wanna bury you

Well there's things about me that you need to know, and I know that you won't approve


In the middle of a cold and empty space

You took me to the limit and you pushed me on past it

I never want to see your face

I KNOW WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT

And when the cable's down and your interest is limited too

The walls are closing in, but they couldn't stop the hullaballoo


I faced the bitter wind and it hit me like a four-by-two

It came as some surprise, but I wouldn't say it's up to you


And I know what it is that you want

And I know what it is that you want


So I've gotta admit that you're forcing me to concede

But it's not as if you're forcing me to believe

In the motorcade and I'm digging in my jamboree

And if it doesn't explode I'm expecting it to rescue me


And I know what it is that you want

So we'll take out back when the car's pulling up the front

And if it's dark outside we can see by the light of the moon

With your shoulders slumping never worry we can be there soon

BABY

Baby, you're treating me as though I'm your lover

It's killing me I'll never recover

You planted an itch in my brain

You confused me so please explain


You low-down son-of-a-gun

Think about what you've done

Cos I can't say that it's been fun

And I'm hoping that our time is done


You're pulling coals out from the fire

You said it's cold but I know you're a liar

Now you're screaming and stamping feet

I can see we're in for a treat


Your lips tighter than a drum

You're cryptic and highly strung

This is something that I've never done

Oh watch out for here she comes


You stole me drink when I took you to dinner

You backed a horse but it wasn't a winner

I learned fast just to keep my distance

But your wave's smashing up my resistance


You're dangerous but golly-gee

You sucked the life right out of me

I'll feel the pain in perpetuity

Oh why'd you have to pick on me


Oh no, no exciting the trouble that you're always inviting

You're brighter than a bolt of lightning

You're a trick that I can't repeat

From my nose to the tip of my feet


And I wouldn't want to wish you ill

You're a hard pair of shoes to fill

So when you're back won't you give me a call

Cos it's really not a problem at all

REGRET, UNCERTAINTY

I will leave behind all of my clothes, the ones you bought for me

I will head off down that lonesome road, the one that brought you to me


From the loudest shout to the quietest whisper

These are the things I remember

At the end of winter in the spring of '83, with your two steps slowly moving and your tear drops glistening


I will say goodby to what I've seen

It's time for me to leave

Should you ever think of what could have been

Regret, uncertainty


Lonely in a crowd

Everyday I miss her

Though it makes me sad I keep her picture


Drive home from Reading on a Tuesday afternoon

Well it felt like the beginning then it ended far too soon


I have tried and tried

Do you think of me?

It's there for all to see

I can never take those moments back

Regret, uncertainty

Regret, uncertainty

Regret, uncertainty

WE'LL MAKE IT THROUGH (DON'T WORRY)

If there's anything that you want

That I can possibly do for you

You don't have to worry, we'll make it through


You know I'll always be by your side

Even on the roughest track

You don't have to worry

I've got your back


You can't always stop it

It's slipping in between the cracks

As time travels on now

What's the use of looking back


So with a fire that'll burn your heart

And I look into your eyes of blue

But you don't have to worry, we'll make it through


When it comes to the big decisions

At least you know I'm willing

Cos it's my mistake if I left you out

Cos you'll know that something's missing


I couldn't tell you that I wasn't sad

About the silly things that you do

But you don't have to worry, we'll make it through


So if there's anything that you want

That I can possibly do for you

You don't have to worry, we'll make it through

DAVID, MARTIN, FRANK AND JOHN

I've made my mind up I'm leaving this town

I've had it with people just bringing me down

I've wasted, I've tasted the bitterest fruit

I've packed up my bags and my powder-blue suit


David, Martin, Frank and John

Mary, Suzie, linger on

George and James and Peter too

Carol, Rita, Pettigrew


Packing and taxi, I'm heading outside

I'm hoping that you'll come along for the ride

I've hated, I've waited, I've stood in the rain

I know that I'll never see those people again


David, Martin, Frank and John

Mary, Suzie, linger on

George and James and Peter too

Carol, Rita, Pettigrew


Oh, all that thinking

It really helps me when I'm drinking

I like a wine, I'll take a gin

It all depends on the mood I'm in


I've made my mind up I'm leaving this town

I've had it with people just bringing me down

I've wasted, I've tasted the bitterest fruit

I've packed up my bags and my powder-blue suit


Scratching a match on the side of my shoe

You never believed it was a thing I would do

Bag it and tag it and throw it away

I'd rather be heading in the opposite way


David, Martin, Frank and John

Mary, Suzie, linger on

George and James and Peter too

Carol, Rita, Pettigrew

NOBODY'S ASKING

Each time you're leaving, I'm still believing

And all the colours fade to black and white

I want to be there to show I do care

I always thought that it would be alright


Not for the first time you've broken my mind

And all the hurt I'll keep it out of sight

Nobody's asking

It's out there question

I had my fill and lost my appetite


I've seen the sunlight take over moonlight

I've heard you crying in the dead of night

Nobody's asking, I'll just keep searching

I said I will, but you just said I might


So if I'm able I'll keep your picture

You put my mind straight I can see things right

Nobody's asking, they've all moved on now

We never fought, but you just won the fight


So think of me from time-to-time

You've left me on my own again

I'm feeling so alone again


Nobody's asking about your leaving

I'll still be caring, I'll keep believing

I'll take a rain check

I'm scared of thunder

I'll try and call you

I've got your number

ALWAYS

For I know, I'll love you always and always I'll know
That you'll be, you'll be there always and always I'll show
That we belong together
Now and forever 
And I know I'll love you always and always I'll know

PICT0240.jpg

THE FINEST PERSON THAT I'VE SEEN

I asked you once, I needed clarity

The sweet potential of your eyes

So now I say in all reality, with gazing fed and fancy dies


Oh, lucky me.  You're the finest person that I've seen

Stay till the morning light

To dwell in solemn shades of night


You're trading on my insecurity

I can't do wrong for doing right

I'm trying to tell you what you mean to me

A thousand seekers seek the light


So, stay with me.  For here you're clearly meant to be

Faith and liberty

I say these things with certainty


Oh, lucky me.  You're the finest person that I've seen

Stay till the morning light

To dwell in solemn shades of night

YOU'RE NO GOOD

Well I wonder if you saw me as I passed outside your door

It's a journey that I've often made like a million times before

But on that late November morning rubbing sleep out of my eyes

I saw Jimmy Duncan hovering then he let himself inside


So I stayed in the vicinity no confusion did I lack

Cos it set my mind explicitly like a knife pressed in my back

No thoughts of equanimity, 'Betrayal' cried the world

You're prissy, hissy monologue, it strikes me as absurd


So in vengeance not humility, I promised to be good

I'd do the things I could have done, the things I knew I should

Then the bitter evening showers forced me back into my room

Like a bolt of electricity, I realised

You're no good


In the twinkling of an eyelid, in the flashing of a light

My memories overwhelmed me, how I didn't treat you right

Your episodic empathy, you're despotic, you're a fool

You're quick to take advantage, but I couldn't be that cruel


So let's move this story forward, change perspective I'd prefer

My point is just as valid as the stories that I've heard

In quiet contemplation of the damage that I've seen

The twisting, sad apology of the person that I've been


The remainder isn't valuable, for now my work is done

You're pushing all my buttons, but the end for you has come

So I'll offer my persistence carving letters out of wood

I would rather keep my distance cos I realise

You're no good

THE THINGS YOU SAY

 I said the words that made things so complicated

And what you've heard's put down to me

And no one tried to warn me

They tried to hide it from me

And never breathed a single word

And in my mind's eye I see two clouds passing by me

But not a thing that I can say


In my life I've been over-rated

The things you said were no consolation

And now the time it is running out

And you don't look any further than over your shoulder 

And in my mind's eye I see things that terrify me

But nothing much that I can say

And in my lifetime there's been oh so many sad things

But nothing much that I can say


Don't question why the stars come down and the moon it shines

Cos stars won't hide the tears that come falling down, hold me close, draw me near, never let me go


And in my mind's eye I see two clouds passing by me

But nothing much that I can say

And now I'm begging baby

Please don't ever leave me

Cos if you did I would be

On my own with nothing to say

MORE AND MORE

Help's at hand I need a rest

A nagging feel inside my chest

Hear my words, imagine me

I love you so and I want you to know that I need you

Oh, I need you - more every day

And in the sorrow of your dreams be coming to me 

And I don't believe it when you smile the way you do, I love you

I cannot help myself

This time again I'll walk away, I'll see your face in the light of day

I hear your words, I love your voice

How can you leave when you've got the choice?

Oh and I love you, more and more each day

Don't go away from me this time

I love you so and I want you to know that to go at all would be to go forever

Don‚' leave me, how I love you


I cannot help myself this time 

Don't leave me here alone without you

And I'll think of you in all I say, in all I do

And it really hurts just missing you

And I want you so and I'll let you know tomorrow

And I love you more and more each day

DON'T WORRY

There will come a day when the winds will blow the sky will fall 

I never kissed your lips I never touched your heart


There will come a day when I need you more than I’ve done before 

so don’t worry


And I feel the same as always (I need you now) and I’ll take your 

hand (I’ll take your hand) and I’ll lead you down (and though there’s 

nothing left in this heart of mine, don’t worry), I’ll take you down, 

I hope you’ll understand


And I feel the same as always (don’t worry), since you went away 

(don’t worry), and though there’s nothing left in this heart of mine, 

(so don’t you worry), I’m gonna love you anyway


And it’s all falling in from above, and it’s all falling in from above


There will come a day when the winds will blow the sky will fall 

I never kissed your lips I never touched your heart


There will come a day when I need you more than I’ve done before 

so don’t worry


And it’s all falling in from above, and it’s all falling in from above

And it’s all falling in from above, and it’s all falling in from above

I HEAR YOU SCREAM

You might not think of me as one who spends a lifetime waiting for someone

You might not think of me pushing postcards and writing letters to no one


And now the time is running out

I hear you scream I hear you shout


You might have heard me walk across the floor above your window at some time

You might have thought of me as the blossom falls from the loaded tree


And now the time is running out

I hear you scream I hear you shout


By the fire in the fading light warming hands against the cold

In the bitter days of winter I feel so tired I feel so old


You might not whisper to me precious things that mean so much to some one

And in your dreaming sleep does the thought occur that you might not be the only one


And did you ever think that in your sleep, while you dream 

You might not be the only one?

ALL IN YOUR EYES

You only touch me with your fingertips

I kiss the roses from you lips

And push the hair out of your eyes

Your head on my chest

My arms keep back the night

Your naked pale body forever draped round mine


And when you leave you know I'll turn my back for good on love and

Lies that kept my feelings trapped inside

Cos it's all in your eyes


And if you don't change I‚m going through that door

Cos I can't give you anymore

Did you really want me to?

And it's frustrating times when nothing's ever going right

I look for you, but you're not in sight

And I find myself alone at night


And when you leave you know I'll turn my back for good on love and

Lies that kept my feelings trapped inside

Cos it's all in your eyes


And if you die I'll cry

And if you leave I'll say goodbye

And if you love then I'll love you more than anybody has before

I'm growing sick because of you

Hold me back I'm turning blue

You stole my heart and I didn't want you to

DON'T YOU KNOW

I wake in the morning with the early birds calling

I'm leaving you sound asleep

I'm hazy and lonely cos you don't really know me

I'm not the type of guy you think


Don't you know that I love you

Don't it show how I need you

Can't you see that I'm lost if you're not there?


I'm tempted to tell you I've fallen down for you, but it's only because of the drink

I'm trying hard not to cry, I can't stop to wonder why

I'm out of the door and I'm on the street


Don't you know that I want you

Now I know I can't have you

And it hurts me inside to know I care


Thank God it's raining, it's hiding my crying

And I don't want the world to see my insides are broken from words that were spoken

And I'm trying to leave tonight


Now win me or lose me, but soften the bruises this heart isn't made of gold

There goes my last cigarette, the others are soaking wet from tears I've cried and loves I've known

YOU CAME UP AND SMILE / LITTLE PRINCE

You, you came up and smiled

And I could see in your eyes an Amazon that stripped me alive and tied my tongue to my mind

Wanted to fight 

You stood in the light 

I could see through your dress and that silhouette


But, oh don't smile again cos I'll burst into flames and even blue eyes know

If my heart could bleed, my body would weep

My lips would crease, our hands should meet

My heart would bleed and my eyes would say I love you


My head is spinning now I've found you again

It doesn't matter much to me just what you say

And now the rain keeps falling, I hear your laughter calling and in the morning 

I'll be seeing you again


And I'll come looking through your window tonight

I'll come see you hope the whole thing turns out right


My Little Prince I've found you

My Little Prince I've found you

My Little Prince I've found you

My Little Prince


Oh when you smile the world begins to shine

And I kiss the air I'm so glad that you're mine

And until the day that you go away

Come rain or shine you'll still be mine and I'll let you know that I love you


I'm slowly drowning in my tears of shame

And you're still laughing cos you gave the game away

My hearts run dry you bled me on all those lies you fed me

I m dead and starved why can't you bury me

But that's too easy now you've hooked me to your chain

You keep me hanging on 

You know that I've been slain


And now my courage fails me, fails me again

And you don't notice that I‚m feeling the pain

And now you know you tamed me

And if I cry don't blame me

You always made a fool of me

AMANDA DREAMS

Amanda dreams but not of me

And it's so sweet so warm between my sheets

Another cigarette won‚t help me to forget

No need to tease 'cos I'll say please

It doesn't matter what the others think

You take my cigarettes and you never will forget


What's wrong with me because you've got me turning blue again

And I don't want to know about the things that you told some one else

And I think of when you didn't have the time for him

And I could say Amanda dreams of me


Amanda dreams and stares past me

It really cuts me that look in your eyes

I always act the same

I looked and smiled but then you turned away

I'm dead down on my knees 'cos you haven't got the time for me

And my heart bleeds into the seas, but never dreams

WHAT CAN I DO?

Love lines the young man's face

I hope that you just think of me

I'll never get to see your face again

But what can I do, when I still love you?


I can't forget your last embrace

It keeps me warm at night

I know I'll love you till the end of time

But what can I do, when I still love you?


I'd walk a mile for one of your smiles

Every time I see you I've gotta cry

Every time I see you it makes things, it makes things so much better


Touch, touch it's time to go

I hope that you remember me 

I can't bear not to see your face again

Oh but what can I do because I still love you?


What can I do?

What can I do when I still love you?

UNDERGROUND

This album has become a favorite among fans, as

Let's go down to the underground

It's the only place where love is found

I meet new people everyday

Who've all got something to say

Well they've all got something to say


Won't you come a little closer

Come along sit by my side

And, whoah, the next stop is my stop 

I think that I'll stay on with you and maybe we'll enjoy this ride

Push me down on the underground

It's the only place that I'll be found

Speeding underneath the town

Cos when I'm up I'm down

Yeah, when I'm up I'm down


Fool around and act the clown

You pick me up if I fall down

Look at how the people stare

You say they don‚t even care

No, you say they don't even care


Fool around let's hang around

Rocking to that Moss Pole sound

Speeding underneath the town

Cos when I'm up I'm down

Yeah, when I'm up I'm down

WERE YOU HAPPY?

As you sat on the end of the bed

Away from me and so perfect

Not a sound came from your lips

But I did just as you said


Dressed just in skin

You looked so scared

But were you happy that night?


Your tears came with the morning light

And you hung on to me with sunshine your eyes

And you knew I would not stay

But you asked me anyway


Dressed just in skin

You looked so scared

But were you happy that night?


I told you I was happy that night 

(Were you happy that night?)

MY SWEETEST GIRL

I look at the sky and I think it's about to rain

I look in the mirror and I see you‚re coming near again

I have to smile cos you're standing close to me

Thinly disguising my feelings of ecstasy

But when I feel your touch

You know I need you oh too much my sweetest girl

You're my sweetest girl


I feel your presence as you‚re coming close to me

Pulling me down fulfilling my fantasy

I'd give my love I'd give you everything

I'm tied to you more than I think I've ever been

I want you of so much but it hurts me so cos I need your touch, you're away from me


When you‚re close I feel the sun come out again 

The moon shines brightly over coloured hills and desert sands, I'll hold your hand

And I'll see you in the morning, through the silence of the night

And though nothing's wrong, I‚m feeling wrong cos I need you here tonight

I get the feeling that you've missed the point of what‚s going on around here

All that's left for me is bringing back those memories and tears - and tears

Though I talk about it, I won't shout about it

Though I talk about it, I won't shout about it

I look at the sky and I think it's about to rain

I look in the mirror and I see you're coming near again

I have to smile cos you‚re standing close to me

Thinly disguising my feelings of ecstasy

Oh I need your touch, I need it now

I need it so much my sweetest

You're my sweetest girl

You're my sweetest girl hear me talking

TO KISS YOU

Down came the rain and washed all my tears away

Up came the sun  I thought I was done

You came around

My feet hardly touched the ground


Safer inside I think of you and colours cry

Right from the start I thought I would die

You came around

My feet hardly touched the ground


Here in my heart the pain I feel is part and parcel of the love you gave to me

I burned down your paper castle

I knew all along that things they could still go wrong

Do we still agree that only love can set you free?

I wouldn't even die for you, probably never cry for you


Since you came along, I‚m trying but it worries me

I didn't even try to kiss you

I wouldn't even try to kiss you


Deep in the night, I stay with you and time will fly

Bathed in the light by your body I lie

I played you a song, I played it all night long


Severed by the passing years as friends go by you save your tears

Something in your eyes that says, something that says more or less

For one that goes away, another one will pass your way


Taken apart, the love you gave with tears and laughter 

All the things you gave to me, I couldn't fail to make you see

Since you came around, my feet hardly touched the ground

Trying to be all the things you need from me

I wouldn't ever hide from you, probably turn the tide for you


Since you came along, I‚m trying but it worries me

I didn't even try to kiss you

I wouldn't even try to kiss you


Down came the rain and washed all my tears away

Up came the sun  I thought I was done

You came around

My feet hardly touched the ground


Safer inside I think of you and colours cry

Right from the start I thought I would die

You came around

My feet hardly touched the ground


Here in my heart the pain I feel is part and parcel of the love you gave to me

I burned down your paper castle

I knew all along that things they could still go wrong

Do we still agree that only love can set you free

I wouldn't even die for you, probably never cry for you


I'm begging you don‚t ever leave

Cos if you did I‚m on my knees

Hold me now I need you so and should you ever let me go

And if you took me for a ride and if you ever hurt my pride 

I wouldn't ever hide from you, probably turn the tide for you

Wouldn't wanna die for you, probably never cry for you

ONE SUMMER

Laurie and me what could have been?

Or what it just a lie to laugh at me

I knew you‚d gone and I could have died

I‚ll always wonder why there‚s no goodbyes

Lost in the flowers drowned in the sea

The sun and me both shed our tears

I never could believe that you‚d leave me


One summer, I saw you and I knew, I‚d never be with you

Blue eyes, blonde hair

I wanna talk, but I didn‚t dare

One summer, I saw you and I knew, I‚d always think of you


Laurie and me it might have been

You had to leave look at the mess I‚m in

You had to go and I had to stay

You‚d think that love would find a better way

Strapped to this planet

Parted by the seas

The moon and me both shed our tears

I never could believe that you‚d leave me


Laurie and that makes me dream

One day I‚ll fly across the sea to touch you

And to smile and reassure

What more could I ask for?

I sent you one letter

That got lost in the seas

The sun and moon both shed their tears

It‚s easy to believe that you left me

R-2314163-1276274174.jpeg.jpg

GO DOWN

Take me home I‚m sorry I left there

Sleep comes down in velvety sighs

I can hear the whispers of morning

Splendid words repeat after mine


Make the most of our time

Calm in the soft warm light

I'll be waiting her

Go down


And I really, really want you to go down

And I'll see you and I'll see you when you go down again

And it's such a long time and it‚s such a long way go down


You could make me happy

Spend some time with you

Safe, so safe secure inside you

Go down


And I really, really want you to go down

And I‚ll see you and I‚ll see you when you go down again

And I'll see you and I'll dote on you so go down

R-2314163-1276274174.jpeg.jpg

BLISSFUL

Words will never say the way I felt about you today

Eyes can never see all the trouble you caused me

I will never sleep 

Knowing you can't get near me

I cannot pass the test, I need you for your tenderness


And I can't tell you what it meant to me to see you hear and I'm dying for another chance to hold you once again, to hold you once again

And I miss you 

Still I'm laughing now you're back to stay


Eyes that always shine another place and another time

Face so very rare a fractured smile and a broken stare

Lips not meant for me, captivate and now set me free

It's like my favourite dream, my feelings are too obscene


For far too long it's been the only chance that we have had together

In the peppered hearts

A melancholy grin, a melancholy grin

And it's blissful sending messages along the way


You've been and gone too far and there's nothing left for me to do

It's time to change and it must be said

I broke a habit just for you

I'm feeling grey but what can I do?

Cos you'll never know how much you do


Hearts will always break, but that's just a risk you take

Oh I know you lied

I realised the day I died

Now I'm bruised and now I'm torn

I see the signs that I ignored

Feel my heartache, feel my pain

I'll never fall in love again


And I can't tell you what it meant to me to see you hear and I'm dying for another chance to hold you once again, to hold you once again

And I miss you 

Still I'm laughing now you're back to stay


Words will never say the way I felt about you today

Eyes can never see all the trouble you caused me

I will never sleep 

Knowing you can't get near me

I cannot pass the test, I need you for your tenderness


Words will never say the way I felt about you today

Eyes can never see all the trouble you caused me

I will never sleep 

Knowing you can't get near me

I cannot pass the test, I need you for your tenderness

10,000 MILES

 thought of how it used to be, walking arm in arm

Talking dreams and maybes, but the saddest thing baby was the day would surely come

I reached inside my pocket and pulled out six million five pound notes

But the wind disturbed my confidence, now my shoes won‚t make it home


And it‚s a long way back from China, I‚ve been 10000 miles, but I still can‚t find her

Gin-soaked belly I‚m a long, long way from home

And so I wake up the girl beside me and now I know she‚s not, but I thought she might be

Anything‚s better than a night spent on my own


I found myself a desert, but I couldn‚t find a drink

I spent three long days and now I‚m really amazed at my capacity to think

So 'one and one' I‚m wondering as I walk on down this road

ŒCos it‚s a real sore pity when I find a city that I‚ll still be on my own


And it‚s a long way back from China, I‚ve been 10000 miles, but I still can‚t find her

Gin-soaked belly I‚m a long, long way from home

And so I wake up the girl beside me and now I know she‚s not, but I thought she might be

Anything‚s better than a night spent on my own


And if my dreams came true I‚d find

You playing hard to get next time

But all my dreams are edged with blue

So what the hell am I meant to do?


I thought of how it used to be, walking arm in arm

Talking dreams and maybes, but the saddest thing baby was the day would surely come

I reached inside my pocket and pulled out six million five pound notes

And it‚s a long way back from China, I‚ve been 10000 miles, but I still can‚t find her

Gin-soaked belly I‚m a long, long way from home

And so I wake up the girl beside me and now I know she‚s not, but I thought she might be

Anything‚s better than a night spent on my own

SUDDENLY

Suddenly it all comes clear that I‚ve been let down again (been let down again)

You promised me so very much, before you caught that train

You shut the door on everything and you threw away the key (threw away the key)

I really had no idea that you had gone away



You put a crack into my heart that tears will never heal (tears will never heal)

You stole a kiss and that‚s all I had and then you took away my right to feel 

(right to feel you)

I‚m sorry and I hate to think just what you thought of me (what you thought of me)

You shut the door on everything, but now I see


And when I sleep now, I‚ll sleep forever

Knowing that a love like that is all I need

And when I cry now, I‚ll cry forever

I saw you last week in my dreams but you didn‚t glance my way

No you didn‚t glance my way

No not at me


When we were friend we loved we lost, but still we gained

What‚s given must be taken away

I‚ve no right to choose and I‚ve got nothing to say

I can‚t stand to lose so I won‚t ask you to play


Just ask anyone why I don‚t come round no more (I don‚t come round no more)

And everyone will tell you that it‚s you I‚m waiting for (I‚m waiting for you)

A year is not enough to fix the heart that you tore up (that you tore up)

You couldn‚t wait to finish me, to break the bonds to set me free


And if you want me back then I‚ll say no never

And if you begged me on your bended knee

I‚ll turn the tide now 'cos I‚ve gone forever

You put a lock around my heart, but I‚ve thrown away the key

Yes I‚ve thrown away the key, but not for me


I‚ve thrown away the key (but not for me)

COULDN'T FIND A REASON

I couldn‚t find a reason so I took the words and made them rhyme

In the change of season with a change of heart I made you mine

Penny-pinching paradise in the dark doesn‚t look the same

If you‚ve had it you won‚t regret it, now who the hell said it?


Blowing up my bubblegum with a chintzy-ritzy on the phonogram

Staring at the dotted carpet like a sassy dresser with a broken thumb

Ever smiling, never crying though it took my heart away

If you‚ve had it you won‚t regret it, but I can‚t believe that you said it 


And as we sat up through the night when at last we kissed and held on tight

We saw a better world beneath the morning light

Your head laying next to mine

Our hearts beating keeping time

And now it‚s come to this I‚m trying not to cry


I couldn‚t find a reason so I took the words and made them rhyme

In the change of season with a change of heart I made you mine

Penny-pinching paradise in the dark doesn‚t look the same

If you‚ve had it you won‚t regret it, but I can‚t believe that you said it


And as we sat up through the night when at last we kissed and held on tight

We saw a better world beneath the morning light

Your head laying next to mine

Our hearts beating keeping time

And now it‚s come to this I‚m trying not to cry


And I can‚t wait to get off work and see my baby

She said she‚d be waiting by the phone for me

So I‚ll remember and I‚ll be faithful

Be it hard or be it painful

I‚ll take a job sweeping up tonight

And I can‚t wait to get off work and see my baby

She‚ll always be waiting in my dreams for me

Hear my words now, hear them good

For your loving I wish you would

Come on down and put me on my feet

scream-170504-720x379.jpg

YOU SCREAMED

All kinds of promises, all stories that were told

I don’t believe anything of the fiction that you sold

You’re missing your ambience

You’re trailing far behind

I’m keeping it down a bit cos it’s messing with my mind


In courts and cathedrals in the presence of your grief

I can’t put you in for it

This is way beyond belief


You screamed

Youi screamed

You screamed

You screamed


I won’t look for miracles

I can stand on my own two feet

You made quite a meal of it now your scheming is complete


In dolce my Maria turn to softness in my hand

You trail lines of amethyst causing landslides, melting sand


The principles of unity

Have been scattered to the winds

The coal in the fire

Burning cleanses those who’ve sinned


Increasingly eminent, but depressingly immature

From conquest to conflict, we’ve all been this way before


Ripped, stripped, flayed, whipped

Clawing at your feet

Eyes core, skin raw

Melting in the heat


The worst and the best of times

The distraction that it causes

We’re finally clear of it

Hear the shouting through the walls

The rhyme and the synonym

The porous and the tall

Effectively permanent

It’s the ending of us all

THE ENEMY OF SLEEPING

See Anna, hear her talking, but not to me

Deep fear in other people and company

Can’t see the forest, can’t see the trees

So tired but I can’t sleep, it’s killing me


I heard

I felt the thunder

Words slurred

Every little piece is fitting perfectly


In focus in the foreground

In sharp relief

I’m watching from the outside

I feel seventeen


It’s keeps passing over, it’s missing me

You never said it was gonna be easy

You weren’t kidding me


My words

They hit the ceiling

What’s worse

The slightest chance or near impossibility


Now it’s a slow drive through the longest night

And we can rest before the morning

Sign twice on the dotted line

Now the storm has left its warning


No more, for sure

There’s no one to listen

I dare 

No care

Not missed or missing


Return, return

Safe to your keeping

String out

Hung out

The enemy of sleeping

ANY OTHER WAY

I’m writing songs about the good old days

The days lost in a summer’s haze

I wouldn’t have it any other way


I’m writing songs

No one will listen to

Cos it’s just me and you

I’ve really nothing else to do


I’m glad you’re here

To protect me from the things I fear

Through happiness and through the tears

Nothing matters when I feel you near


I’ve heard it said, fate feed off of doubt and dread

I’ve got you in my head

You’re climbing up the walls instead


Everyday that we’re together I’m finding something new

I’m changing whites for blues


These things are true

Cos I want to spend my life with you

Cos there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do

If we fail then we start anew

I tell right from wrong

And I believed you all along

And every day it’s growing string

We’re getting back where we belong

How can this be

It is perfectly clear to me

It’s a stone cold reality

It’s took some time but now I see

So I’m writing songs

About the good old days

Days lost in a summer’s haze

I wouldn’t have it any other way

I MISS YOU

From the warm seas of old Ceylon

I’ve travelled far and I’ve travelled long

Cold nights

A million stars for a ceiling


Sailed through tempests on the China sea

Wondering if you ever think of me

\Next night, next place, same feeling


So when the blossom falls somewhere in Japan

And with a fractured heart I’ll do what I can

And I miss you


Chased the Mistral down to Sicily

Sent a message could you rescue me

Sometimes I need to keep my distance


Caught Star fish in Haling Bay

When roads were blocked I went another way

Pastiche, washed down with Retsina


And when the bullfrogs call from the sugar cane

And I could swear each one is calling out your name

And I miss you


For now, for that’s the say it goes

Youi spoke, I took another blow

No chance, no chance of seeing me

No chance, of change no chance of sympathy


Crossed the Tigris where it’s just a stream

Washed in waterfalls of verdant green

Cried out, through drought through fever


I stole favours in Siem Reap

I climbed mountains just to touch the peak

Pushed hard I had to make an achievement


I saw the fruit bats hanging from the telephone wire

I saw the rivers burst and the land on fire

And I miss you


Drove miles down to Tampa Bay

Picking moonshine along the way

I tried, but I reached my limit


Slept lightly moored in Blue Pearl Bay

I felt winds that blew my soul away

Complied, conformed, resisted


So with a bit more trying I can make it through

But there’s always room in my heart for you

And I miss you

images.jpeg

I CAN'T LET YOU GO

Incredibly, I let my feelings run away with me

This isn’t how it was supposed to be

But I’m not asking for your sympathy


Repeatedly, you laid the choices right in front of me

I felt emotion washing over me

There’s none so blind as those who will not see


But I can’t let you go

I’m sorry if I let my feelings show

I can’t let you go


Sometimes, when all the world feels like it’s on your side

And all I give you keeps you satisfied

I can’t hold you if my hands are tied


So here where we are string’

The winds and tides can carry us along

I hope the journey carries on and on

And senseless things begin to do them wrong


But I can’t let you go

I’m sorry if I let my feelings show

I can’t you go


And at the moment we surrender

As I tried hard to remember

You are judged by what you do

Take an oath and keep it too

Where the river meets the sea

That’s as good as it can be

It’s what brought us both together

And I couldn’t wish for better


Biology

It’s like a chemical anomaly

A strong attraction beating gravity

It’s all constructed out of energy


So there’s a few things that I cant forget

I feel the same as on the day we met

I feel the same as on the day we met

I guess you’d call it an epithet

What’s good is gone but better’s coming yet


Incredibly, I let my feelings run away with me

This isn’t how it was supposed to be

But I’m not asking for your sympathy

LET'S KISS AND SAY GOODBYE

Girl, we’ve been travelling the whole wide world

Hey girl, the tall thought-woven sails that flap unfurled

And now I see that this really wasn’t meant to be

We shouldn’t end it on a lie

So let’s kiss and goodbye


There’s something you could tell me out of curiosity

Did you break my on purpose, was it accidentally

Leaving notes under your pillow

Taking day trips to the sea

Catch a movie, grab a taxi

Take a trip to Italy

All the time we had together I believed that I could fly

Now let’s end this thing together

And let’s kiss and say


My foolish heart

The one you stole and then you ripped apart

Think hard

Was this your intention from the very start

And now it seems to me

Just one more love that ends in tragedy

We shouldn’t end this on a lie

So let’s kiss and say goodbye


All the times I waited for you calling me

And now I’m thinking you were somewhere that you shouldn’t be

You’re forcing me to question your humanity

I guess that’s kinda strong but what do you expect from me?

We could have gone forever

Now it’s ending suddenly

So please don’t lie

And let’s kiss and say goodbye


From A to C

I really can’t remember much of B

We shouldn’t end this on a lie

So let’s kiss and say goodbye


All your girlfriends told me, but I didn’t want to hear

I was wrapped up in a bubble and my thinking wasn’t clear

I would call it an addiction, left me shivering and cold

When you crushed me with your hammer

Swallowed all the lies you told

And I still recall your perfume and the freckles on your nose

When you smiled it brought on summer

Frosted cheer and winter’s glow

Sharing cigarettes and milkshakes

Hold you close within my arms

And I can you all I could have done

Protected you from harm

Though I’m not a jealous person you meant everything to me

If I had my time again I’d do things very differently

There’s no moral to this story

Walk away and don’t you cry

I wanna die

But let’s kiss and say goodbye

I WAS WRONG

I've tried

To stop the hurt and pain inside

I lied

I left my conscience open wide

Stepping over bones laying scattered on the ground

I can hear your gentle breathing so I'll try not make a sound


I was wrong

I'm wrong


Hard words

Hurt Me

You're gone

I grieve


I was wrong

I'm wrong

 

VERTIGO

A Musical Journey

Vertigo, you came into my life and made it so

You gave me vertigo, feel like I'm falling from the sky

And when I'm feeling low

I seek the comfort of that vertigo

And in times of need, it lifts my soul and I can fly


For now and I hope forever

Pick it up

We can face these things together

Take, take what you want from me

And if the pressure's building

But your heart is willing

SINCE I'M LOVING HER

​There's no easy way to say I love you

There's no easy way cos I let you down

You told me there's no point in trying to find you

Well maybe so, but I'll keep hanging around


I think I'll spend some time alone

Cos I'd rather be crying on my own

Oh honey, why'd you do that

You do it to me all the time

In spite of him I'll live in this poor rhyme


You broke my dreams and left me bleeding

Just so you know I'm in quite a state

I feel the weight of too much drinking

My secret thoughts they made me hesitate


I think I'd better carry on

Through the echoes of the things that I have known

I'll work it through, I'll take some time

Since I'm loving her 

I lost my mind


And now my thoughts they are receding

Not sure if they're right, but I know they're true

You often told me you were leaving

I wasn't sure what I was meant to do


My conscience tells me that it's wrong

To be able and lonely all along

I can't take you back

I've thought of it a million times

But if I was wrong I guess that makes you right


You left your keys upon the table

I hear the clock it's beating out the time

I feel I'm sinking under water

That's where I'll stay if I can't make you mine


I need the comfort of a friend

Cos I'm finding it hard right at the end

Oh honey why'd you do that?

I think about you all the time

Since I'm loving her I lost my mind

Lost my mind, lost my mind


There's no easy way to say I love you

There's no easy way cos I let you down

You told me there's no point in trying to find you

Well maybe so, but I'll keep hanging around


I think I'll spend some time alone

Cos I'd rather be crying on my own

Oh honey, why'd you do that

You do it to me all the time

Since I'm loving her

 

GIN AND CIGARETTES

It's time you faced up to the truth

Put your faith in something new and you can't lose

I chase the thought around my head

Were you lying, was there truth in what you said

I heard your footsteps in the hall

This was coming and you can't say you weren't warned

There's no way back and you won't stay

Is it true that you were leaving anyway?


I'm still confused by what you do

Bottled up, my pain it broke my heart in two

We took a path that took us down

It was hard to keep my feet on solid ground

The past bears heavy on my mind

Where once was lost and gone and never to be found

There's no way back from what we said

I just lean upon my gin and cigarettes


I've nothing left to prove

You spoke and I can choose


I miss you face

I miss your smile

I felt the rain washing tears out of my eyes


Where the river runs

Where it meets the sea

So I'll just thank you for the time you spent with me


I've nothing left to prove

You spoke and I can choose


Still in the night

I hear you breathing

On your shoulder I cry

Cos my heart's in pieces


Tearing me down

You don't want to miss this 

I question your aim

But it's not my business

OH YEAH, ALRIGHT

Oh yeah, well alright
Let's talk about the other night
Don't care, don't dare
If it isn't wrong why make it right?
And I'm feeling quite a need to change the scenery
It's a feeling that's been growing long
We'll take the next train out and I'll be heading south 
To a place I once heard in a song
And on the journey we can kick back
Let me know if there's an impact on your sense and sensibility
And we can drink until we're sated, let go all the tings we hated
Like the constant fights, the heated nights
The feeling nothing's going right

 

WHAT'S THE POINT OF IT?

What's the point of it?

Why d'you feel so bad?

Have I broken it?

Did I make you mad?

I can't handle it

I gave you all I had

Now you're suffering

I'm feeling worse than sad


So, so you're gone

But the taste of you

It still lingers on


Your lies, lies, lies, you lied

You tricked me with your eyes

I'm facing it

I was embracing it

It's time to go I must admit

Thinking.jpg
 

ALL THE THINGS YOU DO

So all the things you do and your point of view on nothing, yeah nothing

And when we scream and shout and we're falling out, you just purify


The when the mood is right whet my appetite, it's thrilling, if you're willing

And when the morning comes and I kick you out of my bed, that's what you said


Well I had nine lives now I'm down to five

I'm a refugee in your embassy

When you pull the string make me dance and sing

It's been crazy since I met you and I know I won't forget you


Make me spin around, knock me to the ground

So you hurt me, yeah you hurt me

And when the evening comes and we're having fun and it's no surprise


But it's your friends I hate cos they're always late

They're annoying, so annoying


I get your point of view now we really should be sleeping, I'm not sleeping


Well I had five lives now I'm down to two

When it all went wrong at the rendezvous

And your contradictions make me question my convictions

It's been crazy since I met ya and I surely won't forget yaSo all the things you do and your point of view on nothing, yeah nothing

BROKE ON A WHEEL

I, I was hurt

I think you got what you deserved

Told me things that made it worse

You kicked me to the ground


You crossed the line

You shot me down a thousand times

You're playing out your pantomime

I'm bursting at the seams


And now I find I've changed my mind

I think back to the better times

When the world was a mystery

We shared our history

The summer days were hot and long

We could tell right from wrong

Your love swept over me


Broke on a wheel

I can't explain just how I feel

The deepest cuts will never heal

To end in tragedy

It's no longer true

I don't expect much more from you

You split my poor heart into two

  

You buried me alive

 

100,000 VOICES

 I'm glad to say, love never went away

I'm here, you're here and all-in-all we'll be here till the morning

You showed me just how happy we could be

I loved you all along

You're back where you belong

In a world of fear

I'll keep you near

Protecting you from harm

You taught me things I never knew

The best thing is I'll be here in the morning

Changing our ways will pay off right away

Stand up, be good

I think it's understood

And all the flowers in the world and all our favourite songs

And a 100,000 voices sing along

I'm glad to say, love never went away

I'm here, you're here and all-in-all we'll be here in the morning

You showed me just how happy we could be

(I loved you all along)

You're back where you belong

I loved you all along

And a 100,000 voices sing along

  

 

NO CURE FOR MY BROKEN HEART

I remember when things were different then

And so I went out of my mind

When I fell apart, broke my heart

You treated me unkind


Reaching out for you was the one thing that I couldn't do

Stumbled to the ground, falling down

It's over with you


You waved it aside

It was never justified

Averting your eyes

Like a stranger


You tore love apart

There's no cure for my broken heart

I couldn't see

I was in danger

THE GIRL WITH THE BLOODSHOT EYE

Late one night and the place was quiet

I was looking for things to do

So I drive out to the Riverbar

Bought myself a drink or two


In the corner a band were playing songs that reminded me of you

And I lit up another cigarette and I bent down to tie my shoe

Then the swing doors slowly parted and it took me by surprise

I felt incapacitated when I saw the girl with the bloodshot eye


She had a leather coat that fell past her knees

She had tan-coloured leather boots

She wore rings on every finger

She had a case where she kept cheroots


Commanding attention, familiarity

She knew what she doing when she passed in front of me

She left a trail of devastation I swear grown men started to cry

I couldn't give you an explanation when I saw the girl with the bloodshot eye


I questioned my credentials as I slumped into my seat

It was the strangest situation 

Was it real or counterfeit?

Then she turned her gaze upon me

And I swear without a word of a lie

I was hopelessly imprisoned when I saw the girl with the bloodshot eye


She bruised me

When she used me

She confused me

I guess it was supposed to be
