Lyrics

Working Man

I will be a working man, Live my life upon this land

Proud I stand - a working man 

At night I dream of waterfalls, Deep lagoons and pine trees tall

Where painted ships adorn the waves. Whispers sound from empty caves

I will be a working man, Live my life upon this land

Proud I stand - A working man

 

Oh I’m a working man, Oh I’m a working man

live my life upon this land, Play by day an honest hand

Proud I stand - a working man

 

At night I see a lighthouse shine, Beacons dancing warning signs

Her light will guide us safely home, Upon the waves of time we roam 

I will be a working man, live my life upon this land

Proud I stand a working man

 

At night I walk on distant shores, Through other Worlds my dreams explore

Where people touch with healing hands, And peace prevails throughout the land 

I will be a working man, live my life upon this land

Proud I stand a working man

Lyrics

Home 

Travelin down an empty road, Burden halved, share my load

People come people go as we roam, Need somewhere I call home

 

I lost you down the line, Tell everybody, I’m feeling fine

I might smile, but sometimes I’m so alone, Need somewhere I call home

 

Things aint bad, could be worse, I need love to quench my thirst

Torn & twisted, left stranded on the road, Need somewhere I call home 

Chorus

I’ve never been this far before

Now the horse has gone & bolted from the stable door

I’m left here, on my own

Far away, from the place, I called home

 

The whiskey tells me I’m brand new, Keeps me sedated while I think of you

Morning comes reawakes my jaded soul, Far away from the place, I call home

Lyrics

Answerphone Song 

There’s a place that exists outside of the soul

A place where shadows roam

There’s a voice that exists for you on your own

A voice that guides you along

 

There’s someone watching over you

No matter what you do

Through rain hail & snow, No matter where you go Will always be with you.

 

Some say it’s fate, & some say it’s God

Some say, it’s the spirits high above

Some say so much - they say - nothing at all

Some folks just wait around - for the call

 

Sometimes you reach out, seems nobody there

You feel stranded & so alone

You need a voice to guide you home

Not a message on the answer phone

 

Sometimes it’s tough, & sometimes it’s hard

Sometimes you forget who you are

Remember a place, that exists in your heart

Only love can heal the scars

Lyrics

Will You Ever Learn 

Where are you going, dressed like that

That’s a question, you’re parents ask

You’ll catch a cold, going out like that, will you ever learn

 

Can’t pick you’re family can’t choose you’re friends

Can’t save money, you have to spend

Make the same mistakes, time & time again, will you ever learn

 

CHORUS

Groundhog day when the morning comes

Deja vu under the same old sun

Can’t make you’re mind up, to be or still to come,

Will you ever learn

 

Chose to walk, you should’ve run

To late to shelter now the rain has come

You left you’re coat behind, you shouldn’t have done

Will you ever learn

 

You never listen to the good advice

You know better, your always right

I think you’ve missed the point, yeah, once or twice, will you ever learn

CHORUS

 

Time to wake up before noon has come

Get off you’re arse, there’s work to be done

The early bird, always catches the worm, will you ever learn

 

Regrets & burdens, gotta live with them

Gonna need broad shoulder to carry them

Remember these pearls of wisdom son, will you ever learn

CHORUS

Should have listened to the older folks

Like you once, they were young & broke

You try and tell em, that they’re the joke, will you ever learn

 

One more thing before you die

Take your chances as the years role by

Don’t look a gift horse in the eye, will you ever learn

Lyrics

TOWN THAT I LOVE 

Walking the pavement, my heads feeling tight

Dark clouds are closing, I start to lose sight

Move faster as I head for the Town I know it’s to late

I’ll be drenched like a clown, like a clown

The sky breaking clouds it’s pissing down rain

The cats & the dogs play a tune in my brain

Where do you go when you’re feeling so bad

Nothing changes round here, makes a sad man feel sad in the rain

The acids affecting my brain, running around in the rain

 

Chorus

We said, Why, why, why, why, Why do we cry

The sky is in tears water pours from his eyes x2

 

Enter the High street it all looks the same

Got the geeks on the corner got the gonk doing the same

The shopping bag ladies talking so nice

The gossip, the scandal, the trouble & strife it’s a shame

Cars double parked, it’s the everyday scene

Double yellow abused, traffic warden looks mean

Prams & buggies run over your toes

The rain runs down the point of your nose in the rain

The acids affecting my brain, running around in the rain

 

The local supermarket gives shelter for now

Playing dodgems with the trolley, you follow the crowds

The music’s no good so I head for the door

It’s back to rain, I’m bound for once more it’s a shame

The local alkies are wet there Carlsberg’s are dry

An old lady brolly nearly pokes out my eye

People pass you with a push & a shove

It’s great to be home in the town that I love x4

IT’S SUMMERTIME 

It’s wake up time, this day is fine

It’s Summertime, it’s waiting there for you

The days go on it wont take long

It’s Summertime, it’s waiting there for you

 

See the sun rise high above the rooftops to the sky

It’s Summertime, it’s waiting there for you

Sit outside drinking ice cold beer

It’s Summertime, it’s waiting there for you

 

As the days go on it wont take long

We all sing until the sky turns blue

The music’s loud come and join our crowd

We just sing till the sunshine passes through

 

The days go on, it wont take long

We all sing until the sky turns blue

Guitars play loud for the party crowd

And we all sing till the sunshine passes through

 

It’s Barbie time drinking cool red wine

It’s Summertime, it’s waiting there for you

The sirloins fry and smoke gets in you’re eyes

It’s Summertime, it’s waiting there for you

It’s Summertime, it’s waiting there for you

It’s Summertime, it’s waiting there for you

Lyrics

SHOW ME THE WAY

At the mercy of the Ocean

Adrift a thousand souls

Speak to me - I’m coming home

Underneath an Astral skyline

Where ghosts of many roam

Speak to me - I’m coming home

 

Keep the home fires burning

The Northern lights still glow

Keep the lights on, Show me the way to go home

 

The oil fields blink and flicker

Through the afterglow

Speak to me - I’m coming home

The white horses arising

Through the cold spray and the foam

Speak to me - I’m coming home

 

The shadows slowly drifting

As King Neptune calls the show

Speak to me - I’m coming home

I feel small and I feel helpless

A force we can't control

Speak to me - I’m coming home

 

The sky is miles above me

The Ocean beds a thousand fathoms below

Speak to me - I’m coming home

The winds that whisper around me

Carry voices of many lost souls

Speak to me - I’m coming home

Lyrics

OH LITTLE TOWN 

Oh little town I know so well, I saw you standing there

Draped in all your sparkling lights, A Christmas spell fills the air

It's been a while since I saw you're smile, You haven't changed that much

I travelled far to be with you, I longed for your familiar touch

 

I walked these streets in the early hours, They once belonged to me

Think of the nights that we'd meet up, And dreamed of all that we could be

A stranger now in my hometown, Once a spirit wild and free

People come and people go, And drift away like the sea

 

I believe in you believe in me x2

 

Now gather round this Christmas tree, And sing a song with me

It doesn't have to say that much, I need your company

We'll raise a glass to the future and the past, And recall a happy memory

It's one for the road and one for the ditch, and one for the spirits in the breeze

 

I believe in you believe in me x2

Oh Little Town I know so well, I saw you standing there

Lyrics

SHIPWRECKED 

I’m lost, in the fog, In the sea

I’m the light, In the dark, You can't see

It's hard to fight, When you're empty

I feel helpless, I cant save you, can you save me

 

I’m a father, I'm a son, I’m a friend

I’m a man, Who stands tall, I get there in the end

At night all alone with my thoughts

I’m a ship, Broken up on the rocks

 

Oh take me home, Oh I'm so alone

 

I'm a bird in the sky, hear my call

Then I crash to a stop, the waves break my fall

My eyes are shut, but I dont sleep

As thousands are lost in the floods I'm unable to weap

 

CHORUS

 

I keep waiting

For, spiritual awakening

Our World, keeps on turning

When all around, buildings burning

I cry! Oh Lord! but no one listening

 

I’m sand on a beach, A fish in a pond

With so many Gods In our world

Surely one can respond.

Lyrics

SINNERS & DREAMERS 

Listen all you sinners, as we gather here today

There’s something I must offer you

Got something I must say

I try to walk the straight line but keep moving from it fast

I've gotta learn from my mistakes misgivings from the past

 

Oh I must do, what I’ve to do, what I will do today

Oh I must do, what I will to do today

 

Too much beer and whisky, temptation in the way

Wine & women, song & dance, I threw my life away

Making up for lost time I got married along the way

Gotta learn from my mistakes that’s what I must do today

 

Tell me, what did you envisage

For your future when you were young?

I became a joiner, because I’m a joiners son

Could have been a Lawyer, Doctor or artist if I could paint

If my Dad were a minister then I’d have been a Saint

 

Again I stand before you, got something else to say

Set out to grow old gracefully, got hi-jacked along the way

Taken hostage by society but the music set me free

Come you sinners come you dreamer

Come and dream along with me

Check Them Out!!!
