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

Look Me Up 04:25
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 .

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.

Michael 05:55
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.

I Want You 04:00
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

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.

Who 03:54
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?

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.

Strung Out 04:34
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

Didn't I 05:29
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

Grace 04:01
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

Carry On 03:47
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
