EARLY MORNING

 

A late night yearning and an early morning

For the girl who's calling your name

Wishing wondering when you'll be coming

Back to her again

We'll it's a, a long road with a heavy heart

A steam train with a steady start

The highway but the long walk home

 

Chorus

Love, love, love  x3

Is creeping on in

 

You know high times you’ll know the lows

Let love in yeah and watch it grow

You never try yeah you'll never know

You never try yeah you'll never know

 

Chorus

PAVED IN GOLD

Chisel a story from blood and bone        

Pay to the man till the money's all gone                        

The same old face in the mirror still wondering how

 

You got this far with a ball and a chain 

Carried so long now all that remains

Is a whisper in the wind and a trail in the fading dust

Chorus:

I will hold you tight

Ease your fears away

I will let you know 

You're not in this alone

We will keep on running 

Soon the day is coming

Well look back and see

Its all been paved in gold

Verse 2:

So pick up your shoes keep travelling on 

Till the days grow short and the nights grow long

And you need another drink like you need another hole in the head

 

There's a break in the dark and a distant call 

So well you know now you'd risk it all

For a chance at another glance

At a broken dream

I will hold you tight

Ease your fears away

I will let you know 

You're not in this alone

We will keep on running 

Soon the day is coming

Well look back and see

Its all been paved in gold

GRANDMA'S SONG

There's a woman who lives on top of the hill

See has made her bed and she lays there still

In a room with a view that the whole world should see

She has learnt to survive but not to be free x2

but not to be free

 

Her children they know how to live with the cold

They stay young in their hearts as their days grow old

There’d be love in the house if we could find the key

She has learnt to survive but not to be free x2

but not to be free

 

It remains to be seen she's a little misunderstood

She has paved her way like an only child could

We can only hope as she reaches her dying days

That her mind will rest and her loneliness be saved x3

 

There's a woman who lives on top of the hill

SINK OR SWIM

 

A cold wind settles on my chest 

 It’s a timely reminder of what I thought was best

 And now you're far, far from my side

 From the choices you have made   

 You can run but you can't hide

 Ooooooh My my dear

 Ooooooh

 

Chorus:   

We will make new new tracks    

Down to the water

Down to the water

We will make new new tracks

Sink or swim

Hell or high water

Hell or high water

 

Verse 2:

In the woods with open arms 

You find a resting place to take you safe from harm 

And it's that old death rattle in my brain

The space you left is cold

But the smell of you remains

Ooooooh My my dear

Ooooooh

Chorus

Bridge:

Keep your head up don't get lost in the darkness

My my dear

Keep your head up don't get lost in the darkness

Far and clear

....repeat 

Chorus

SOMETHING LEFT TO LOSE

I new a girl she would've travelled the world  

If not for the hole in her head

She fought to be saved

but at the end of the day 

It was a hole in her heart left her dead

 

Mow we all know that time goes slow

Until there’s none left to waste

If only we could see what the future would be          

There’d be no room for fate

 

Chorus:

It might seem like you got nothing 

but there’s always something left to loose

I feel like starting something

But something’s nothing without you

 

Verse 2:

I knew a man with a master plan 

the house the car the kids and a wife

Eight hours a day on a factory wage 

He’d say don't let money rule your life

Go, travel the world and find yourself a girl

Don't believe ‘em you don’t need to settle down

Just put food on the table, man if your young and able

Don’t make the mistakes I did

Chorus

It goes on......

GYPSY HEART

Some of us are born lucky

And luck is a cross to bear

Some of us are born with an axe to grind

Claiming life it just isn’t fair

Some of us are born in the gutter 

But we've learnt to look at the stars

Some of us are born on a hope and a dream

Never thought we would get this far

Never thought we would get this far 

Chorus:

I was born under a travelling wind

and with a gypsy heart I roam

Where ever I lay my head

I'll call my home

 

Verse 2:

So lets pack our bags full wishes

And take only time

Make boxes for your  memories

Let your spirit shine

Coz there’s power in the process

We always have everything we need

Set your truest intensions 

Someday we’ll be free

Someday we’ll be free

Chorus

LIFE IS FOR LIVING

  

 I knew a lady

 She put pen to paper daily

Always with a glint in her eye

Tales of lust she made 

She left an empty page

 The day that she died

Chorus:

Now I struggle to keep my head above that water

 For all  the words we could've said

All I know is life is for living

And she's a long time dead

Verse2:

I knew a woman 

Not so fond of the system

She danced like the colours through the rain

She took her own life 

Her flame burned for one last time

We will never know her pain

 

Chorus

Verse 3:

I knew an angel 

She'd sit at a table

And treasure every day of her life

They flew her away

To an early grave

Leaving a husband no longer a wife

And two beautiful children

How you gonna tell them

When they're old enough to ask you why

They stole mum away

On that fateful day

And we never had a chance to say goodbye

Chorus

 

 

 

MOMENTS

This same old pain’s been felt   

Too many times before

And I have closed up for shelter

Now you're knocking down my door     

Like the sunrise you bless me

With that smile upon your face 

You've been asking me for answers

I'm asking you to wait

 

Chorus:

I want to be happy wholesome

Into my heart again

I want to cherish the moments 

In the hope they will never end

There's a river now flowing 

On a mountain descent

Out to the wide blue ocean

Where we will meet again

 

So I will break down these boundaries

That rattle through my rain

And I will wait for the moment

When when the sun comes up again

Like an angel you bless me

You melt this heavy heart

You gonna take me straight back

Straight back to the start

Chorus
