Track Name: Troubadour
Troubadour

Troubadour…
Singing my life away
Who knows just
Where this song will lead?
I’ve been beaten down
I been pushed around,
Still I keep my reason to believe

Troubadour….
Wasting my life away (So they say!)
They don’t know how good it is to bleed
Well I’m a lover,
Not a fighter-no,
Singin’these blues
Has long set me free
(The way I wanna be now!)

And one of these days,
I’ll be king of my hill
One of these days ,
I’ll be king of my hill
One of these days….

Troubadour….
Keep your expectations high
Though there may be many rivers to cross
They will stone you,
They will crucify you
But the good guys will get paid
Come judgement day
- Hallelujah’s what I say!

And one of these days,
I’ll be king of my hill
One of these days ,
I’ll be king of my hill
One of these days….

Troubadour…
Singing my life away
Who knows,
Where this song will lead?
Troubadour…
Wasting my life away
Singin’these blues is all
I’ll ever need.
Track Name: Love Doves
Love Doves

Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, entwined in you,
Love doves-
What can we do?
Trapped in amber
Sweethearts unspoken,
Fragile, yet still unbroken
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves –
Your secret with me
My heart talking
Soft as the breeze
This story of love
Been around –
As old as the trees
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Love doves, loved up,
Baby don’t, break the spell
Baby don’t, break the spell
Baby don’t, break the spell
Baby don’t, break the spell
Love me.
Love me.
Love me.
Love me.
Track Name: Bygones
Bygones

“You’d be surprised at what a man can remember, take me f’instance, back in the 80’s, I was catching a train when I saw a woman in a red coat on the opposite platform. I don’t think she saw me, and I only saw her for a brief moment. But I tell you this, I bet a month hasn’t gone by since that I haven’t thought of her.”

Do you remember me,
As I remember you?
Or have you forgotten me,
As people tend to do?
Sweet nostalgia,
Sweet schadenfreude
Always makes me blue
I can’t help looking back
When I should be finding new
…Bygones, bygones
…Bygones, bygones
…Bygones, bygones
Always make me blue
You tied a knot in my heart
Some years ago,
Perhaps you believe
I’ve forgotten you?
Don’t even think it, no.
Sweet nostalgia,
Sweet schadenfreude
Always makes me blue
I can’t help looking back
I can’t get over you.
…Bygones, bygones
…Bygones, bygones
…Bygones, bygones
Always make me blue
Just when I think I’ve let you go,
The power of my heart, tells me no,
And you’re taking me back again
I’m always opening my heart to you
The sound of your silence is nothing new
And you’re taking me back,
Taking me back,
Again..
…Bygones, bygones
…Bygones, bygones
…Bygones, bygones
Always make me blue.
(Make me blue)
Track Name: She's A Mystery To Me
She’s A Mystery To Me

She is a mystery to me
(Just like Sandy, & Heather was too)
She is a mystery to me
(Oh Jayne, how you made me blue)
She is a mystery to me
(Every song I sing, everything that I do..)
She is a mystery to me
(My whole life through…)

I try to understand,
But she won’t explain
I’d love to learn,
But her language is strange

She is a mystery to me
(I Couldn’t be your man, Nikki
-However hard I tried)
She is a mystery to me
(And I’m sorry I hurt you Sarah,
but our love died)
She is a mystery to me
(All these things from days gone past)
She is a mystery to me
(Memories are sweet, but love didn’t last)

She says she’s the same
But something has changed
It’s the same old song
But the meaning has aged

Love is the mystery girl,
The one that you seek
Are you so inexperienced
In the language I speak?
Surely you see that,
The girl of your dreams
Will always be a mystery
Just as you are…
To me.

She is a mystery to me
(Love..)
She is a mystery to me
(Love...)
She is a mystery to me….
Love…is a mystery to me
Track Name: To Be In Love
To Be In Love

To be in love with you
Is just like the first time,
The first time, that you kiss, or make love
With real passion
To be in love with you
Is such a powerful feeling
It scares me,
But I love it too
(Is it the same for you?)

Oh, to be in love,
Oh, to be in love
(- With you)

To be in love with you
Is such a sweet high,
Surely no drug could compare
To this, oh my love
(Oh, my love, oh my love!)
To hold this condition,
In my heart, it is to be blessed
Truly it is, my love
Truly it is..

Oh, to be in love,
Oh, to be in love
(- With you)

I’ve never really opened up totally
In a song & told you how much I love you
It isn’t easy for a man to express himself in words
We get scared that we will get our hearts broken,
Or perhaps be laughed at for being so open
But I want to tell you now….

I’ve been in love before….
(Don’t want to get hurt like I did before) -x3
I don’t want to get hurt!

To be in love with you
Is just like the first time,
The first time, that you kiss,
Or make love with real passion
Blessed are the days
That I Spend with you,
But I know all things must pass
My love, my love.
Track Name: Because Of You
Because Of You

This time, last summer,
When I first set eyes on you.
How could I know then
You would make me feel
So blue?
No, not a lover
(Should the thought have crossed your mind…)
I love another
And the ties that bind
What a fool am I,
What a fool am I, (Just a fool for love…!)
Driving home in my car
Believing I can fly (have you ever been a fool in love?)
What a fool am I,
What a fool am I, (Don’t you realise that it’s….)
All because of you,
‘cause you’re always on my mind
(All because of you, ‘cause you’re always… on my mind)

This time, last summer
Sets me in my melancholy mood
All too often,
I find myself,
Thinking about me & you
So, it’s trouble in the heart,
Trouble in the mind
All because of you
The trouble with love is,
It always seems to,
Be so cruel

What a fool am I,
What a fool am I, (Just a fool for love.!)
Almost crashed the car
Believing I can fly (have you ever been a fool in love?)
What a fool am I,
What a fool am I, (Don’t you realise that it’s….)
All because of you,
‘cause you’re always on my mind
(All because of you, ‘cause you’re always… on my mind)

All the things we leave undone,
All the things that we leave unsaid..
From time to time I Think about a kiss..
Gently on the top of your head
So if I turn around,
Every now & then,
It’s just to take a moment
With the message that send
Just to take a moment,
With the message that you send
……All because of You !….…(x 4)
Track Name: Father Becomes The Child
Father Becomes The Child

You walked like a man, John Wayne
How I wished I could be like you
Now you say you are so tired
Well, I get tired just like you do too.
You don’t walk the walk, John Wayne
You don’t talk the talk
Like you used to do.

It’s hard, so hard, it’s hard…So hard
It’s hard, so hard,
When the Father becomes the child

You never think it will happen
But somewhere along the line
You slipped off track
And try as I might, try as I might
I just can’t seem to get
The old man back.
You don’t walk the walk, John Wayne
You don’t talk the talk
Like you used to do.

It’s hard, so hard, it’s hard…So hard
It’s hard, so hard,
When the Father becomes the child
(Father becomes the child-becomes the father, father becomes the child-becomes the father-father becomes the child, becomes the father-father becomes the child-becomes the father…)

I can look you in the eye, John Wayne
Though it doesn’t sit too easily with me
I damn you & I love you
For all those things
You’ve done to me

It’s hard, so hard, it’s hard…So hard
It’s hard, so hard,
When the Father becomes the child
(Father becomes the child-becomes the father, father becomes the child-becomes the father-father becomes the child, becomes the father-father becomes the child-becomes the father…)

You don’t walk the walk, John Wayne
You don’t talk the talk
Like you used to do.
Track Name: Learn To Crawl
Learn To Crawl

Imagine a man
Who once had it all
Only to find he didn’t have it at all
If you run, you can expect to fall
Now he is just,
Learning to crawl

A clown prince of nothing
Protesting his worth
His problems are nothing
In the space of this world
No content, in contentment
Can be found at all
Before he can walk,
He must learn how to crawl

-It’s only me,
And it is just paper thin,
Can’t you see,
How easily,
You can destroy me?

Once I was the man
All ego & show
But you don’t get the high
Unless you get the low
I had expectations
But now I just don’t know
Bipolar is the new,
Manic depression
To go..

-It’s only me,
And it is just paper thin,
Can’t you see,
How easily,
You can destroy me?

Imagine a man
Who once had it all
Only to find he didn’t have it at all
I lost my way
Took my eye off the ball
Thought I was a big boy
But I’m just learning to
CRAWL…..!
Track Name: Surely You Know
Surely You Know

Every morning that I wake
Every breath that I take
My thoughts are of you
-What a joke!
Temptation makes a fool
Feelings so strong
I come across uncool
You don’t mean to break my heart
- But you do.
Surely you know by now,
Surely you know by now
Surely you know by now….
Should know better for heavens’sake
F for Fool, F for Fake
No use feeling sorry for yourself
-Only got yourself to blame
Adolescent infatuation
Inappropriate attention
Isn’t it time you learned to behave?
- Little boy
Surely you know by now,
Surely you know by now
Surely you know by now….
Everybody has a dream
A feeling, a longing, a need
Every day of my life
It’s in me,
People don’t say what they mean
They just talk around it, it seems
How sad do you have to be
Before your heart breaks?
Surely you know by now,
Surely you know by now
Surely you know by now
How much I love you
I can see it your eyes
I guess I will compromise,
Myself, just to find your favour
But just as red has turned to grey
I know these feelings will fade away
And leave their bittersweet flavour
But ….
Surely you know by now,
How much I love you.
Track Name: She's Not You
She’s Not You

She is very beautiful
She can break your heart
She did that to me once,
She tore me apart
The most powerful feeling
I ever knew
But for all of that,
She’s not you
She’s not you,
She can’t do what you do
Sometimes I lose myself,
In dreams of her
And things that I cannot change,
And all I can’t do
I love the pain
How she makes me blue,
But for all of that,
She’s not you
She’s not you,
She can’t do what you do
She knows how to play me
Like no-one ever did
One call I come running
I’ve been like that ever since
I wonder about,
How it would be again
(Something I will never do)
But for all of that,
She’s not you
She’s not you
She can’t do what you do
She won’t ever change,
In my minds eye
Age it can’t touch us
For true love never dies
Ah, my foolish heart
Well just you keep me true
Because for all that we had,
She’s not you
Because for all that we had…
She’s not you.
