Track Name: Sunrise
Sunrise…
It’s the start of a new day
I lift my head from the pillow
As the night slips away
No one knows,
What the day will bring
I leave you sleeping
Here beside me
Unfold the arm
You throw around me
And take the first step
In the brand new day.
Track Name: You're No More Jesus Than I
You’re No More Jesus Than I

I don’t believe in politicians
Don’t believe in priests
I don’t believe any man
Who says he’s not a thief
Equally,
I believe you get
What you give
And I will kick against the pricks
As long as I live
There’s a man who wants my apology
How can you apologise to liars?
You’re no more Jesus than I
You ain’t the Messiah

I don’t want to hear you
Your words just serve yourself
It’s not an intrusion
Unless it’s someone else
What makes you think
I want to sit at your table?
I’m a captain of my own
I just see a lonely man, sad ,unable
So don’t come the righteous with me man
Though you may believe you are somewhat higher,
You’re no more Jesus than I
You ain’t the Messiah

I’m not the same man
I was last year
You changed something inside me
Put someone else here
I have friends in the ether
Just one click away
But who will you turn to
When you’ve pushed us all away?
You are a taller man than me, my friend
But I believe that I stand higher
You’re no more Jesus than I
You ain’t the Messiah.
Track Name: Full Moon
Full Moon
Something strange about today
You’re not the same as yesterday…
There’s a change in the weather
A chill wind that makes me shudder
There’s a person that I see through
That looks & talks
But it’s not you
Where have you been, where have you gone?
You leave me here
All alone in the song….

There’s a full moon
In the sky tonight
A full moon that
Is changing your life

Is it in the sky
Or a breath of air?
I believe it comes
From the moon upstairs
It takes my love
Away from me
And leaves me here-a-bobbin’
On a stormy sea

There’s a full moon
In the sky tonight
A full moon that
Is changing your life

The wind is hushed,
The air is still, the bird returns
The cloak removed.
No distance now to your embraces
The hour has passed,
Your lady dances.

I wait here
Under a raging moon
I hope & I pray that you come home soon
This house is not a home, no this house is not a home
We are together, but I am alone


There’s a full moon
In the sky tonight
A full moon that
Is changing your life
Track Name: Fly Away,Bird
Fly Away, Bird

Someone passed me by today
Didn’t talk to me like they did yesterday
I’m just a figure from the past
They don’t want to see
Life’s a game, and you play hard (to get)
Your new friends are cool (they’re heaven sent!)
I was bought & sold (now out to rent)
Forgotten boy…
Fly away bird,
Fly away bird
- Fly away
Red, Red Robin!
Remember me
When your new friends leave you
All at sea
Pretty soon, I know you are going see…
That every man must reap just
What he sows….
It’s funny little games that you people play
It’s ”Love you darling”
Then you can go away
I guess I will get hard to it all
Someday.
Life’s a game, and you play hard (to get)
Your new friends are cool (they’re heaven sent!)
I was bought & sold (now out to rent)
Last years toy…
Fly away bird,
Fly away bird
- Fly away
Red, Red Robin!
Remember me
When your new friends leave you
All at sea
Pretty soon, I know you will…
Reap what you sows….
And everybody will know.
Track Name: Sent By Angels
Sent By Angels

I saw you at the discotheque
Back in 1981
I was just a nobody
But you,
You were someone
You shone like a star
Even then when we were so young
Truly,
You were sent by angels
To dazzle everyone
I don’t think I had ever turned my head
‘Til the day I first saw you
It wasn’t easy growing up
I still find it hard to do
But you were in my dreams
Back when I was young
Truly,
You were sent by angels
To dazzle everyone
I was jealous of your beauty
How it seemed so easy for you
Of course, now I see
We were most likely
The same, me & you
But time treated me kinder
It wasn’t like that for you
Truly,
You were sent by angels
But then they came
Looking for you
I will always remember you
Back in 1981
So young & beautiful
Where I, was just a no-one
Truly sent by angels
How could we ever know?
That the angels would come back for you
And you would have to go.
Track Name: A Parallelogram Of Suitcases
A Parallelogram Of Suitcases

I’ll beat you out a song
On dead strings
Open up my mouth
And I’ll try to sing
The tide gets higher
The clear plastic tears
This is a portrait of me, my dears
There’s a parallelogram of suitcases
Sitting in the hall
I don’t think I can lift one
Let alone lift them all
Lift them all..
I don’t think I can carry that weight
I don’t think I can carry that weight
No more
After the sugar rush comes the down
And the roots from the underworld
Come up from the ground
Spit out the bile and feel the fear
This is a portrait of me, my dears
There’s a parallelogram of suitcases
Sitting in the hall
I don’t think I can lift one
Let alone lift them all
Lift them all..
I don’t think I can carry that weight
I don’t think I can carry that weight
No more.
Demons & hellhounds
Accost & abound
A bad case of ‘dem blues
Is-a-comin’around
But I’m all out of fuel
Can’t shed a tear
This is a portrait of me my dears
There’s a parallelogram of suitcases
Sitting in the hall
I don’t think I can lift one
Let alone lift them all
Lift them all..
I don’t think I can carry that weight
No,I don’t think I can carry that weight
No more.
“Once you pull the pin
You can never put it
Back in again
Once you open the door
You can never get
Back to where you were before
No more.”
Track Name: Two Faces
Two Faces

I have two faces, and two minds
I have thoughts & feelings
I just can’t deny
I have two hearts, and each is true
Do you ever find yourself
In two minds?
- I do
But I don’t know which one
Is me
No, I don’t
Know which one is me
I have two faces, and two minds
I have thoughts & feelings
I can’t deny
I have two hearts, each one is true
So I will be right
Whatever I do.
But I don’t know which one
Is me
No, I don’t
Know which one is me
Some people like the water,
To rage & storm,
Me – I like still water
As I swim for home
The water can be turned
Pushed & pulled
The moon will turn the tides
Whichever way – You go
I have two faces
And two minds
I have thoughts & feelings
I can’t deny
Two hearts
Each one is true
One is here,
And the other dreams of you
Some people like the water,
To rage & storm,
Me – I like still water
As I swim for home
The water can be turned
Pushed & pulled
The moon will turn the tides
Whichever way – You go
Track Name: Still Water
Still Water

In the evening
When the day is done
And the horizon swallows up the sun
Here I sit, in my room
Hoping the words will
Bless me soon
Somewhere here,
Somewhere inside
If I could just but ,
Catch the tide
Get on, & ride the wave
But still water holds me
Here today.
Still, still water becalms me – here
Still, Still water becalms me- here
Red, green & blue
Mesmerises & holds you
Clearly we have colour,
It’s black & white
It’s not enough
It don’t feel right
You give me everything I want
But you don’t give me
What I want
You ask me again & again
Do I love you?
-I do
Still water holds me here
- With you
And I don’t mind..
No, I don’t mind
I Love you.
It’s a mean old world
It puts us to the test
We get so tired in the evening
All we want to do is rest
Some people like the water
To rage & storm
Me I like still water
As I swim for home
Still, still water runs deep…
All these worlds are
Yours & mine – To keep
Still, still water runs deep…
All these stories are
Yours & mine – To keep.
In the depths of the water
In the labyrinth below
There is peace & calm there too
If deeper still you go.
Track Name: Gentle Spirit
Gentle Spirit

All we ever look for
As far as I can see
Is someone to love us
And to set us free
Could be a lover
Could be a friend
Could be God,
In his heaven above,
- If he’s really there
Gentle Spirit abide, abide with me
Gentle Spirit abide, abide with me
Oh please keep me
Safe & true
Keep a place for me
Right next to you
Secretly,
I hope & pray
That some good light
Will guide my way
Gentle Spirit abide, abide with me
Gentle Spirit abide, abide with me

(Ba, ba ba..!)

It’s all too easy to say
That love alone will find a way
But when we hold each other close
It seems to keep the darkness at bay.
Track Name: Sleep Tight
Sleep Tight

Leave your suitcase by the door
You won’t be needing it no more
Your train is leaving in just a while
Take a trip down the moonlight mile…

Sleep tight
Forget the problems of your day
Each night
Let the cruel world pass you by
Nobody knows, just
What tomorrow may bring
(Put a band-aid on it…!)
There is a whisper of heaven
In the air tonight
Sleep tight
No tears
And no regrets
At the end of the day
What does it matter?
If you take the road
To the moon upstairs
I will be with you
I’ll be there
Sleep alone
Or sleep together
Just close the curtains
To the stormy weather
It can’t reach us,
Here inside ourselves
We are at rest.
Sleep tight
Now and forever
However small you feel in the world
Nobody knows just
What tomorrow may bring.
…But there is a whisper of heaven
In the air tonight.
