Track Name: Beseeched By Love
Beseeched by Love
Andy Mills was a grave young man
He took a chance on a monetary plan ,
A money seed for him to feed
To fan the flames of his capital gains

His heart was a fiscal cycle
His love was profit over loss
A bottom line and a bank balance paper
Put away at any cost

Richard Anscombe wants someone
so he fell for the girl next door
He lost himself in what they could be
Well what girl could have asked for more

Oh, poor handsome Richard Anscombe
he thought that she’s the one.
He saw them living in a semi with a garden
May be a dog, rabbit, daughter or son
She was good, she was light, she was golden,
But this girl, well her hands weren’t for holding
She had to show he had to go
She’d fell in love with a different beau

Annie-May had a shovel head dream
An oily rag for this gleaming machine
She wasn’t straight, she never lied
She’d fell in love with this v-twin ride

Her heart was a motorcycle
Her love was a winding road
To pop lid and stop your eyes from streaming
And live your life by the biker's code

Richard Anscombe, Andy Mills, Annie-May well they're doing OK
Andy’s got his money pile
Richard's love had to wait a while
Some say that life's a circle
but Annie's goes from mile to mile
So drop a cog and while you give it hand full ,you live your life with a biker's smile
Track Name: Look Me Up
Look Me Up
It's 6 in the morning, I still got whiskey in my mouth
A cold light is dawning, on what last night was about
As she lifts her hand to the back of my neck I slowly drift away
Her fingers hold the weight of my head and I hear her softly say
Look me up when you’re over here, it’ll be good to see your face
But look me up when you’re over her, or you’ll never leave that place
With a mountain of distance and that ocean of time
Unassailable tether, like an invisible line
That pulls me back to where nothing was left and to thoughts I’d put away
As your head lays sleeping upon my chest I still can hear you say
Look me up when you’re over here, it’ll be good to see your face
But look me up when you’re over her, or you’ll never leave that place,
you’ll never leave that place, never leave...
Like cold water running down, it makes no sound but it takes pieces off the ground
as it carries away boulders that weight heavy on my mind
Look me up when you’re over here, it’ll be good to see your face
But look me up when you’re over her, or you’ll never leave that place
Look me up when you’re over here, when you’re done and when you’re through
But look me up when you’re over her, and maybe we can start, maybe we can start
Maybe we can start anew .
Track Name: Light of my Life
Light Of My Life
I miss your head on the pillow, I miss the shape of you there
I miss the curl of your lips, I miss the curve of your spine
Wont you be mine, be mine, be mine,
till the moment comes to pass
Light of my life won’t you come baby back
Light of my life won’t you come baby back
I miss the fire in your eyes, I miss the call of your name
I miss the time you were mine, I miss the curve of your spine
Wont you be mine, be mine, be mine,
till the moment comes to pass
Light of my life won’t you come baby back
Light of my life won’t you come baby back
Baby back, baby back.
Through all the years we schemed and lied
Through all the years we never tried
For all the good things in my head
For all the bad things that I said
For all the times you never knew
That when I thought I thought of you
It’s like a punch that never lands
You cannot beg with hidden hands
That keep you falling, my hands that keep on calling
Light of my life won’t you come baby back
Light of my life won’t you come baby back
Light of my life won’t you come baby back
Light of my life won’t you come baby back
Baby back, baby back.
Track Name: Michael
Michael
Michael rowed his boat ashore, he had a life but he wanted more
He dreamed a girl in silhouette, he was with her then but they haven’t met
So Michael crossed the river wide, ‘cos you catch a girl like you catch the tide
She would swoon with a need for him, yeah he would battle and he would win
So Michael rowed his boat ashore.
But she didn’t sway no she didn’t swoon, she told him she’d be leaving soon
but as she stood upon the water’s edge she dipped her toe In the things he said, he said
Life it cuts but then it heals, you come alive with the hand it deals
You have to taste all life’s meals to know how a coward, king or peasant feels
And she came alive to it and he came alive to it
These lovers bloom in the poppy fields its all that’s left once the devil steals
To fall in love is such innocence, what’s right is wrong it makes no sense
Now her father said now listen daughter you’ll never marry from across the water
On this account she knew him well, but in Michael's hands her heart had fell
So late one night they slipped away, a secret pact on their wedding day
But they were seen as they left the shore and guns were raised to protect the law
Her father’s aim was one day straight but not with hands fuelled with hate
These lovers stopped and turned about and heard it has the shot rang out
Now Michael rowed his boat ashore, a journey he would make no more
Though the river's wide the route is known, but Michael rowed his boat alone
Michael rowed his boat alone.
Now the people came from miles around, they’d seen their love and they’d heard that sound
They said that life upon this plane, would never be that way again.
Track Name: I Want You
I Want You
A breathe of air and I’m awake
Each time I saw your hips shake
A body built just for romance
And yeh I would, given half a chance
I want you, I want you
You struck me down with your eyelashes
You’ve got legs that start car crashes
I hang on every word you say
I hold it in, but I give it away
I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you
I’ll go over-land and over-sea
To hear the words from you to me
To feel your there with finger tips
To hear my name upon your lips
Don’t blame me. Don’t shame me. Don’t drag me down
If I couldn’t make it I’d always fake it
I got to have you around
You’re the dream ‘Would like to meet’
I’m crawling around but with clouds on my feet
Say you will, or say you won’t
‘cos I get no change from falling notes
I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you
Track Name: Too Beautiful
Too Beautiful
I’ve been lost and lonely, I’ve been cut adrift
It’s like I’ve worked for naught on an endless shift
But then I saw you and thought, yeh, I’d dig for gold
But daylight cuts a fool's heart cold
Now I’m not gonna leave you, not gonna cause you pain
But you’re too beautiful to remain
No I’m not gonna hurt you, not gonna work away
But you’re too beautiful to stay
Now I’m frightened by the lightning, but I play along
It’s all a reaction that's growing strong
Now you’ll have expectations, but I’ve got a dread of life
you’ll want to reach beyond the stars tonight
Now I’m not gonna leave you, not gonna cause you pain
But you’re too beautiful to remain
No I’m not gonna hurt you , not gonna work away
But you’re too beautiful to stay
Now morning has broken, as we lie fast asleep
I should have dreamed a dream that lets me leave
Into another place, another skin, another shell, another hell
‘cos this one's too deep
Now I’m not gonna leave you, not gonna cause you pain
But you’re too beautiful to remain
No I’m not gonna hurt you , not gonna work away
But you’re too beautiful to stay. You’re too beautiful,
Too beautiful, too beautiful but please stay.
Track Name: Who
Who
You had a little soul but that’s alright
But I heard you sold it late one night
For a devil smile that just might suffice
But beauty comes at one hell of a price
So tell me who gets your love, now who gets your love
Drunk as a skunk with no excuse
Tight from a night where you just cut loose
A tattoo of a shoe on your left elbow
‘Cos you drunk champagne from a pink stiletto
So tell me who gets your love, does anybody, who gets you love
D’you want to talk about it
D’you stress about it
D’you need a broad shoulder to unburden on
I know its not so easy being not so needy
But I can be that certain someone to show where you went wrong
Now you got a little heart but that’s OK
Cos I can wait, I can stay all day
The marks on your neck are a warning sign
And just like looks they fade in time
Then who gets your love? Does anybody, who gets your love?
Now who gets your love? Does anybody who gets you love?
Track Name: Elfinman
Elfin Man
If you want to be loved be loving
You can never fail if you never give in
Don’t worry how the world looks at you ‘cos you are everything you do
Elfin man he has no heart, shorn of life and torn apart
Caught upon a middle ground, he’ll steel your voice but make no sound
So hold me now, I’ll make you safe some how. God help me hold me down
Don’t give away your heart, don’t give away your soul
Don’t give away your fire, don’t give away your goal
If you want to be loved be loving
You can never fail if you never give in
Don’t worry how the world looks at you ‘cos you are everything you do
With no light on your only need, well what is dust and what is seed
When good is bad when right is wrong, we’ll have no sense to carry on
So hold me now, I’ll make you safe some how god help me hold me down
Don’t give away your heart, don’t give away your soul
Don’t give away your fire, don’t give away your goal
If you want to be loved be loving
You can never fail if you never give in
Don’t worry how the world looks at you ‘cos you are everything you do
You are everything you do.
You’re the rap upon the door, you’re the line from off the shore on’t give away your soul
Don’t give away your fire, Don’t
You’re the glue under your seat and you're the lightning at your feet
You’re as far as you can see, you’re everything you’ll ever be
You're every point you're every view. You are everything you do
Don’t give away your heart, don't give away your goal
If you want to be loved be loving
You can never fail if you never give in
Don’t worry how the world looks at you ‘cos you are everything you do
Track Name: Strung Out
Strung Out
If I was to lie and to cheat you
Then if I was to fall at your feet
So what if this seems cold or seems lonely
But what if this could find me release
Because I’ve got a hunger, no one else can feed
If I could change just to hold you
Well if this was one thing I could do
Then what if no one did ever tell you
And what if you could never see through
Because I’ve got a hunger, no one else can feed
There’s an ache in my heart no one else can heal
Guess I’m strung out on your love,
Strung out on your love, on your love
Because I’ve got a hunger, no one else can feed
There’s an ache in my heart no one else can heal
If I got down on my knees for you
If I could scream what I feel
Then what if you could find what is broken
That only you could heal, only you could heal, no-one else could heal
Track Name: Didn't I
Didn’t I
We’d go down to the rhythm, we’d go down to the sound
We’d go fishing in the summer, its good to touch the ground
And the girls starts to gather, and the summer heat gives of stream
And I wish I was someone different, someone charming someone seen
We’d go down to the rhythm; we’d go down to the sound
We’d go down before life got bigger, before our feet touched the ground
Now didn’t I let you go? Why didn’t I let you know?
Now I’ve got a big black coat, my friend's got a big black hat
Yeh we thought we were the kiddies, in fact we’re exactly that
And Friday night comes calling, if you’re ready or you're not
And that rhythm keeps on bubbling, no it's never gonna stop
We’d go down to the rhythm; we’d go down to the sound
We’d go down before life got bigger, before our feet touched the ground
Now didn’t I let you go? Why didn’t I let you know?
Didn’t I let you walk away, when I wanted you to stay?
You got to do what you want, you got to get it when you can
‘Cos life’s a bitter puzzle , then you kick the can
We’d go down to the rhythm; we’d go down to the sound
We’d go down before life got bigger, before our feet touched the ground
Now didn’t I let you go? Why didn’t I let you know?
Didn’t I let you walk away, when I wanted you to stay
Track Name: Grace
Grace
These dreams, they break the back of any ship of fools that don’t beg forgiveness
Hard lines, your hollow footprints in the snow, who knows maybe you begged forgiveness
Hammer my heart if I get hollow loosen my tie if I get narrow
Shed my skin if I’m not with you look at my life should I begin through
I’m blinded by grace, I’m blinded by bad, bad bad taste
These dreams they build a mountain all alone and things like home start to mean less
I don’t believe your life is gold your life is real, but who knows who knows maybe you begged forgiveness
Hammer my heart if I get hollow loosen my tie if I get narrow
Shed my skin if I’m not with you look at my life should I begin through
I’m blinded by grace, I’m blinded by bad, bad bad taste
It’s all a lie we’re meant to believe it’s all wrapped up and turned to greed
The more you think you know you’ll need
Hammer my heart if I get hollow loosen my tie if I get narrow
Shed my skin if I’m not with you look at my life should I begin through
I’m blinded by grace, I’m blinded by bad, bad bad taste
Track Name: Carry On
Carry On
With her head in your head, hand in hand, she’s making waves
When good intentions doesn’t understand if it never tastes
So carry on. You just carry on
So she raises up around you and wakes you up to find your
Body bits and back arch they feel no pain now
So carry on. You just carry on
You want to make love, you want to stay in love
You want to keep this fine emotion
So when it get tough it's never too much
cos what’s gone is gone, what’s done is done
It’s a common thread that makes us fools
but if there’s no time then there are no rules
So carry on. You just carry on
You want to make love you want to stay in love
You want to keep this fine emotion
So when it get tough it's never too much
cos what’s gone is gone, what’s done is done
