Track Name: Small Back Room
LYRICS

There’s a small back room where I sometimes go
It has no existence in space or time
It’s where I hide when I’m feeling low
The only place where you are mine

Just this one time away from our worlds, that was always the deal
Two days from life by a windswept sea was all we could ever steal

In that small back room I can hold you once more
The single place I want to be
I can leave my pain outside the door
In here you belong to me

We kept saying how lucky we’d met, some people never know bliss
But even then I knew my heart would die, I’d never get over this

There’s a small back room where I sometimes go
It has no existence in space or time
It’s where I hide when I’m feeling low
The only place where you are mine
Track Name: Hey, Mr. Sun
LYRICS

Hey, Mr. Sun
Stop smiling down on me
‘Cause I want to make the most
Of the tragedy of him leaving me
I need to stand in the mist and rain
And savor all my pain
Of dejection, of rejection
Of deception of missing him
And your sunshine is getting in my way

Hey, Mr. Sun
Please get lost
‘Cause only gales and gloomy clouds can really match my mood
And seaside towns in winter where I can just sit and brood on heartbreak
On heartache
On what a snake he was after all
And your sunshine, your sunshine’s getting in my way

You might think this new love is the one for you
Soon you realize it’s more a case of 'he'll do'
Turns out you’re not exactly charming the guy
In spite of all your concessions and mid-brown hair dye

Hey, Mr. Sun
Wish you’d take a hike
While I wait for my homicidal hostility to pass
And watch my heart sink to the bottom of my glass
So just stop smiling at me
Cause your sunshine’s getting in my way
Take a hike, please get lost

Hey, Mr. Sun
You’re really getting in my way
Track Name: Close to Mike
LYRICS

You’re back - tell me all about where you’ve been
Paint me some pictures in words of every exotic scene
Tell me some stories - it gets kinda samey here on the Creek
And I need the buzz of hearing you speak

We could rock on the back porch, watch the sun slip down
Those dark green waters where our aspirations drowned
When this old Creek’s wrapped in dusk’s embrace
It’s really almost pretty and then you can’t look in my face

Oh it’s so good to see you, say you’ll stay
Let’s lie cool and quiet - think up games to play
In the dawn you’ll leave me, disappear without a trace
But for now draw me close and I promise I won’t look in your face
Track Name: How Lucky I Am
LYRICS

Our love’s been a long time coming, building deep inside
Gonna be the love too strong to hide. Everybody’s gonna know,
they’ll look at us and smile, good love’s even better when it take a while.
I can take the old folks laughing, their knowing little smiles
I can take the talk about us, it’ll go away after a while
And I’ll be loving you, the only love I ever needed
when all is said and through. I think about you all the time
You know I do. How lucky I am
To be with you

And I hope you feel the same way twenty years from now
Glad we’ve found each other somehow.
A love like ours only come along one time if at all
The waiting on that one time really worth the fall.
I don’t care about your past, don’t care who you’ve done
Just want us to be together, two lives lived as one and I’ll be loving you.
The only love I ever needed when all is said and through
I think about you all the time, you know I do

How lucky I am
How lucky I am
How lucky I am
To be with you
Track Name: Here They Come Again
LYRICS

Here they come round again
Those tormenting thoughts of now and then
I’ve always tended to be this way
I inhabit the present
But I was made yesterday

Here they come round again
Those painful thoughts of now and then
They’re not my friends
More like family members
Causing regret whenever I rake over the embers

People always tell me
I’m an angry person inside
I keep an eternal flame burning
Wherever dark memory resides

I should bury the hatchet
Unsettle the score
But when I recall an injustice
I’m flexing my claws

Here they come round again
Those bitter thoughts of now and then
I’ve always been this way
I cling to the present
But I was made yesterday

It has been my experience
When stepping into the light
The next step might take you
To an endless night

Here they come round and round and round again
Those bitter thoughts of now and then

I cling to the present
But I was made long ago
Track Name: You
LYRICS

You came and sat under my apple tree, a friend of a friend
Bringing neither wine nor roses, only something that you’d penned
I’d never been given anything so original before
I found out later it was by Sir Thomas Moore
You feasted in my garden, I never invited you
But you were charming and witty and a damned good screw

You stayed a long while, I couldn’t get rid of you
Singing day and night, you sewed sequins on my shoes
Painted my walls orange, made jelly from my apple tree
But you couldn’t keep a job and were no good for me
I ended that dream of summer, told you to leave one day
But oh your smile turned lead to gold and you were a bloody good lay
Track Name: Blackbird Song
LYRICS

Blackbird, sing into the fading light
Here in the dusk, dividing day and night
Each note so pure and clear
As one by one the silent stars appear
Blackbird, don’t fly away too soon
But raise your voice to the falling sun
And the rising moon

Shadows stretch and the light grows old
Blackbird’s throat is lined with gold
Love and hope hold sway
While we’re under the gaze of the Milky Way
Oh Blackbird, don’t leave me too soon
But sing your song to the shy little stars
And the smiling moon

But sing that song to the shy little stars
And the smiling moon
Track Name: Still Water
LYRICS

Clear as light on still water
I let him see how I feel
But his heart gives no quarter
He has walls made of steel

I laid down my cards
He’s seen how I play
He wants me for a while
But I’ll want him to stay

He’s anger and fire
I’m soft as a dove
His passion will burn me
Yet I’ll keep looking for love
Track Name: Garnet Wine
LYRICS

I see the moon reflected
In my glass of garnet wine
Seems its face is full of sorrow
As sorrowful as mine
It’s time for me to break all ties
Make sail for that line
Where the sea kisses the sky

Now my glass has broken
Like my fractured heart and mind
I’ve a ticket marked for nowhere
And I’ll take it as a sign
To break away, make no last try
My fate lies on that line
Where the sea kisses the sky

My ticket’s marked for nowhere
I’ll take it as a sign
To sail away, sail for that silver line
Where the sea kisses the sky
Track Name: Bad Penny
LYRICS

If I could believe you’d love me
I would wait my turn
But you don’t even see me
And that’s a lesson I’ve had to learn

So put your money on the table
And get on for the ride
Don’t want to hear about your troubles
I can’t be on your side

Where is my soul, if I have one?
Don’t think it’s ever seen the sun
I’ve had to wipe my heart clean of all its dreams
And forget the girl I might have been

So put your money on the table
And get on for the ride
Don’t want to hear about the girl you love
I still have some pride

If I could believe you’d love me
I might change my mind
But you don’t even see me
And it’s not love that makes you blind

You don’t even see me
And it’s not love that makes you …

Blind
Track Name: Never
LYRICS (by Narva9)

Never danced in the rain
Never howled at the moon
Never downed a shot of whiskey
Never slept until noon
Never smoked a pipe
Be it weed or for peace
Never gave much of a thought to the world
Beyond my feet

Chorus
So why am I here
What is it all about
Why does the world go ‘round
And is the sky still blue above
Now answer me this
Has it all been a lie
‘Cause how is it I still live
When I’ve never been alive

Life was always just a fact
No place for silly dreams
Those were just for other fools
At least that’s what it seemed
So I never thought to try
Never thought I had a choice
So I never gave my heart away
Never ever gave it voice

Chorus
So why am I here
What is it all about
Why does the world go ‘round
And is the sky still blue above
Now answer me this
Has it all been a lie
‘Cause how is it I still live
When I’ve never been alive

Never sat in the sun
Never named the stars above
Never stopped to smell the roses
I never made the time
Now my end has come
And all I’m left is regret
For I never told you how much I love you
So many things I never said

Chorus
So why am I here
What is it all about
Why does the world go ‘round
And is the sky still blue above
Now answer me this
Has it all been a lie
‘Cause how is it I still live
When I’ve never been alive
Track Name: MARKED
LYRICS

She never knows if she’s coming or going
If in daylight the bruises will be showing
She needs to get the lay of the land
Or risk the feel of the back of his hand
Broken jaw and broken nose
Surrender and fear are the way it goes

Chorus
Is the man lying low, is the beast on the rise?
Will she see the beast looking out, behind his eyes?

Verse
She tiptoes around him, keeps her mouth shut
He’ll use any excuse to call her a slut
Every minute, every hour, she expects the next blow
No one’s ever wanted her, there’s no place to go
That’s why he chose her, she must be to blame
Because right from the start, her daddy was the same

Chorus
Is the man lying low, is the beast on the rise?
Will she see the beast looking out, behind his eyes?

Bridge
She’s a mealy-mouthed victim
A trembling rabbit in a cage
There’s no rhyme or reason
To what goads him to a rage
She has a little mirror
It’s in a secret place
She used to be so pretty
Now she can’t recognise her face

(The beast is looking out from behind his eyes)

Chorus
Is the man lying low, is the beast on the rise?
Will the beast be looking out at her
Looking out
Looking out
Looking out at her
From behind his eyes?
Track Name: Canary Wharf
LYRICS

I see you every morning, a soulful face in the crowd
I’d like to get to know you better, if only time allowed
I feel deprived if I don’t see you there
But we are strangers, so why the hell should I care?

We’ll never know
Unless we take the next step
And say hello

I’ve checked out your hand and there’s no wedding band
But our sphere of interest might be for the same brand
I’m dusting off my sex life ‘cos it’s not over and done
And I’m wondering if you’d give this thing a trial run?

We’ll never know
Unless we take the next step
And say hello

Are you introvert and bookish, moody but sweet?
I’ve got a weird sense of humour, but my intellect’s awfully neat
I’m into champagne and coffee doughnut rings
Tell me what you like to eat, but it’s over if it’s ‘wings’!

We’ll never know
Unless we take the next step
And say hello

Want the ‘same old’ or the unknown? ‘Cos it’s up to you to choose
But if you don’t believe in love, you’ve got nothing to lose!

We’ll never know
Unless we take the next step
And say hello
