Lyrics

  • I See You In The Dark

    Between the ocean and the CityIs our hometownShe buys a dress it looks so prettyShe looks around He sees the dust in the sunrays Of his sorrowHe’s pirouetting through the subways Of tomorrow 
    It’s a world like no other for the brother that stands by your sideBut it’s one for the money and two for the waves that we ride
    You left too soonYou’ll be back someday I see in the dark and you're coming my way
    I don’t know where to lookI don’t know what to say I see you in the dark and you're coming my way 
    I hear the echoes on the back streetsIt’s all about wealth Where all the wasted fill the back seats Of life itself 
    What I’d to do have her back again Just to kiss herMy love she can’t see through the rainAnd I miss her 
    It’s a world like no other for the brother that stands by your sideBut it’s one for the money and two for the waves that we ride
    You left too soonYou’ll be back someday I see in the dark and you're coming my way
    I don’t know where to lookI don’t know what to say I see you in the dark and you're coming my way
    Forty licks shirtTracks in the dirtMorning cold wind whistling He flips a coin to figure what he isWhile she dances on the ragged edgesJust to feel something 
    You left too soonYou’ll be back someday I see in the dark and you're coming my way
    I don’t know where to lookI don’t know what to say I see you in the dark and you're coming my way

  • Seattle Lights

    It’s a low tide, it’s cold outsideAs beautiful as love on the upside Midnight comes, the time just runsAnd hits me with the light of a thousand suns My suspect grin, audacious skin Won’t even tell you half the places that I beenAin’t about the fame, ain’t about the money 
    Baby’s gone down, to a west end discoWants to come around, not for my shadow Asks me to come down from my harboured heights Into the Seattle lights
    The warm, fine, Italian wine Is toasted round like a wounded wind chime The glasses ring, the angels singMarionette dances on a piece of string She tastes so sweet, so completeBe careful where you walk around in bare feet
    Off her back like that, it turns out she’s the harmony queen
    I wanna come down, honey I miss youI wanna come around, that ain’t the issue Wanna throw the traces of those cold nights Into the Seattle lights
    I’m dead at the seams, can’t hold it together I’ll carry your dreams, all through the nasty weatherAway from the faces of my insightsInto the Seattle lights
    I see the girls and their fellas neath the silver moonThey’re all skating at the river by the big balloon You lean close and keep telling me you won’t then you do
    Maybe I’ll go, and see out the distance Maybe I won’t, find any differenceI just gotta run from these dog fightsInto the Seattle lights 
    There ain’t no romance in this whatsoever While I try to slow dance for worse or for betterIf I could have thrown all the wrongs and rights Into the Seattle lights

  • Just a Little More

    I guess I’m at it again, all down Hit another fork in the roadWhere the twists and bends, of this old townGive me just about all that I’m owed My broken heart, I’m sure Is trying it’s best to understandAs it digs its claws, into much moreThan just a little one night stand      
    We met out in a bar on the edge of townThe spirit of the sound spins me right roundStranded fairly close so not too far above Of a crazy little thing that they call loveWe gave into our patience as it wore too thinHailed a cab and Julie jumped right inCame here way too soon back to the place I live And I need a little more just a little more 

    On the streets tonight, the song’s all call your nameAnd I pray and I hope that it’s just a little wind and rain My suspicious fate is banging on the door And I need you right now, just little moreJust a little longer to myself
    Oh I, messed up, I went and let you lead the wayWhen I really should, have called up And mentioned White was turning Grey While I sit and wait, I debate,The things I wish were set in stone When I really should, have thought straightTurned and headed straight back home 

    But we went and had a spin on a merry goTried our very best to try and take things slow You asked me how you looked with your princess grin While I stood there thinking girl, you look just stunning We walked we drove we went on a ferry ride Laughed and joked so hard we nearly died Sat up on the harbour by the glistening shore And I need a little more just a little more

    On the streets tonight, the song’s all call your nameAnd I pray and I hope that it’s just a little wind and rain My suspicious fate is banging on the door And I need you right now, just little moreJust a little longer to myself
    Just a little more, just a little more (repeat)

  • Bad Love

    Smithy leaves from 6 til 7 She irons out the creases of this so-called heavenWhile sweeping up the pieces of those dreams in DevonWhose side you on
    Every time we touch the hairs they jump from my neck Every time I see you, I’m a nervous wreck These days I just get colder, keeping things in checkThe time has come
    I’m rolling with the seasons but I’m getting kinda stuckRunning out of reasons while I feel thunderstruckI feel like a junkie, I’m all tied up Put it down to bad love Bad love
    This ain’t some nostalgic fix Trying to rid this heavy old world of its tricksWhen he hears she’s staying at friends in the sticksOn a Friday night 
    To pursue your own happiness, It sure takes courage Solid foundations from the base to the ridge Remember those good old days on Crawford Bridge In the raw moonlight

    Stuck in Southern Ireland in the Clonakilty mist 450 miles from the first place we kissed Hiding in the shadow of society’s fistPut it down to bad love 
    Seems like we’ve both been caught up in the perfect storm The rain is cold but dance, we’ll soon get warm Every story ends, every rose has its thorn, Put it down to bad love. 
    I don’t wanna spend my hollow days Twisted around the branches of our heart sunken ways Throw away the ashes of our soft drunken phase Where my regret betrays 
    I’m rolling with the seasons, but I’m starting to get stuck I’m running out reasons, while I feel ThunderstruckI feel like a junkie, I’m all tied upPut it down to bad love
    35 years, and been in Love from the start Smithy ain’t a bad man, they’ve just grown apart While somebody needs her with every ounce of his heart Put it down to bad love

  • Never Felt So Far From You

    Tough times now the ocean overpowers The silk sails that carried you, on soft delicate flowers  Remember you’d just sit and talk for hours In a hammock of pure might, of such delight 
    Your eyes I see straight through Honey I’ve never felt so far from you
    So sad how you're so sure that I’ll leave Don’t tell me I’ll leave you, you ain’t getting rid of meLife’s always got something up its sleeveIt took me to get painted by a poetGirl, you’ve got it all you just don’t know it
    Your eyes I see straight through Honey I’ve never felt so far from you
    What’s up that’s so badMy sweet I’ve never seen someone so sadI got no clueBut honey I’ve, never felt so far from you
    Your eyes I see straight through Honey I’ve never felt so far from you
    What’s up that’s so badMy sweet I’ve never seen someone so sadI got no clue
    But honey I’ve, never felt so far from you

  • Rebecca's Curse

    I’m sorry that you’ve been through that you’ve been throughOnce again another lover’s bitten more than he can chewAs a natural consequence, you’re scared to say things trueThat same thing makes you as corrupt as you are blue
    There’s something in the fold of the wind that follows you aroundAs it howls behind you whispering you’ll never be found
    I hope you’ve unwound
    For those stood faithless, love burns like a cigarette And won’t ever come back, cos’ you’re sick of being upsetWhen you learn you’re needed, perhaps you’ll soon forgetYour gene fed pleasure, in saying things you’ll soon regret
    There’s something in the fold of the wind that follows you aroundAs it howls behind you whispering you’ll never be found
    For now you’re losing and your past will just pursue Until that rainbow comes and blinds your tainted view
    [Alternate Verse]You only wished for a little beauty and good healthBut you’ve no principles like pure beauty itself
    There’s something in the fold of the wind that follows you aroundAs it howls behind you whispering you’ll never be found
    Feel free to call me and tell me I spoke trueWhen you stop running and something special comes of you
    I hope you’ve unwound

  • Just Like The Old Days

    Along came young Jerry, in his ride he loved mostHe rode town to town, he rode coast to coastThe last thing I heard he’d rode straight back to hellAs if one day the curtain literally just fell
    Cole hears his woman ain’t being sincereThese things don’t take long to get far round hereHe hares down the dueley, one lane to anotherIn an old beaten hatchback belonged his mother
    Slade ventures down to his local blue bookiesHe scans through his tickets like an old jar of cookies He’s forgot about Toronto, and the Highland SpringsHe sings “here I have all the best things”
    Excuse me, while I think of the phraseThe old man’s so stuck in his waysJust Like The Old Days
    Me I went drivin’, through the unguarded docksTo a small fishing pier close to Old Harry Rocks No one to try beat me down as I riseNo one to pull the wool over my eyes
    Imagine if opinion, blew its own coverIt’d all be the same sound, the same shape and colourEverything sincere, yet sincerely vein In a world where we all shared the same name
    Amuse me, with your sorry cliches Fire up that honey green haze Just like the old days
    Baby use me, if one wants then one staysLive life like life’s just a phase Just like the old days

  • Show Me a Little Mercy

    The painter paints a million saints, they excel in their new design
    He, in turn, has his own concern how many tares to sew this time
    Shallowness pastes its bitter tastes down every avenue but mine

    Where the cold winter still spreads it’s sin and the darkness paints the mood I’m in

    [Chorus]
    Baby show me a little mercy
    It really ain’t like me to get mixed up
    Spilling my senses through a broken cup
    But it ain’t easy when you're on your own

    Oxford man has only ever ran but he needs something new to chase
    A plan in place just in case he forgets to tie his own shoelace
    A cult reborn sticks it’s thorn into the tendering side of grace

    Whichever way the wind blows, whichever way the river flows

    [Repeat Chorus]

    The blinds are drawn but when the light shines through
    Forget me I shall have forgotten you
    It never felt right but that’s fine because
    Cos’ nothing interesting ever does

    Walking around this coastal town and I don’t know the time or day
    Wouldn’t you know it a puppet dressed as a poet knows the only way
    Keeps on going never thinks of slowing as long as there's a message to convey

    Speaking honestly as sweet or bitter as the fruit may be
    I’m the one to blame you see, I met an angel and plunged recklessly
    Show a little mercy to me

    Baby show me a little mercy
    It really ain’t like me to get mixed up
    Spilling my senses through a broken cup
    But it ain’t easy on your own

    The blinds are drawn but when the light shines through
    Forget me I shall have forgotten you
    It never felt right but that’s fine because
    Cos’ nothing interesting ever does

  • Holborn Avenue

    Does the rain still pour off the overflow
    Does it still feel nice like everything sounds inches from your skin
    Does it still slam onto the patio
    Do the early birds still wake you i wanna know

    Summers snowing, i feel like i’m going round and round
    Wind keeps blowing, back the rope I’m throwing and I’ve have found
    That I’m showing, steady signs I’m tired of not knowing
    If i’m dead or if i’m going someplace new
    Away from Holborn Avenue

    Do the dogs still sit by the window
    Where instead of leaning out it’s freezing and I’m outside leaning in
    Does it make sense to you now you glow
    Does it make sense why the hell I let you go

    The world is weighing, too much for this old rusted chain where
    It was once swaying between dreams but now I couldn’t care
    I’m just laying between the emotions I’m displaying
    Between all the things i’m saying while i feel so blue
    Away from Holborn avenue

    Following you out in a desert storm
    Following you to a place that’s safe and warm
    Following you over these cliffs I drew
    To a place where blinded love has the better view

    Summers snowing i feel like i’m going round and round
    The wind keeps blowing back the rope I’m throwing and I’ve have found
    That I’m showing steady signs I’m tired of not knowing
    If I’m dead or if I’m going someplace new
    away from Holborn Avenue
    (repeat “away from Holborn Avenue”)
