Matter of Fact

It’s not that I don’t care for you,

I Just didn’t want you to know.

I may not be so perfect but

You knew that a long time ago.

Whenever we meet I can hardly remain

Upright on my feet.

Joking apart I don’t know, know where to start.

It’s not etc..

Whenever we talk I can hardly believe

The words that I hear.

Purely by chance I drift off, off in a trance.

There’s a voice in my head and it tells me beware,

There’s a message I’ve read and the meaning is clear,

There’s a question that’s asked but I don’t want to hear,

There’s an answer to this but I don’t know…

Whenever we’re close I can hardly contain,

The feelings within.

Matter of fact, I tend to overreact.

It’s not etc..

Whenever we meet etc..

Probably One of The Best Investments I Ever Made

The best investment that I ever made,

But now the interest has gone,

In a day or two maybe I’ll lose the bonds,

That linked me to the past.

In a week or so feelings that come and go,

May show returns at last.

There’s no sign of a recovery to compensate my loss,

There’s a weight I bear that’s heavier than any cross.

I’m claiming for the love that you have stolen,

I’m claiming for the heart that you have broken,

I’m claiming for the fire that you have started,

But I’m not sure if all of these are covered.

I may be lost inside the money maze,

I think I need that extra help.

In a year or two all of the policies that shielded me

have gone,

In a week or so maybe I’ll get advice and find

out what went wrong.

I could try for other cover but advisors tell me no

All I really need’s a lover that I won’t let go.

I wish that I was fully comprehensive,

The damage done could prove to be expensive.

I’m claiming for the love that you have stolen,

I’m claiming for the heart that you have broken,

I’m claiming for the fire that you have started,

But I’m not sure if I’ll invest in love again.

More Than A Dream

I’m speaking, not thinking, not sure if I’m making sense,

I’m dreaming, not sleeping, awake it doesn’t make sense.

But I’m looking for a sign, anything to stall for time

Could you ever be more than a dream to me,

Are you something to idolize?

But I’m waiting for the time, anything to make things fine

I’m speaking etc..

But I’m waiting for a sign, anything to make you mine

But I’m never sure what I can take for it

It’s a curious state of mind

Will my dream ever come true, does it all depend on you?

I’m speaking etc..

Dream, precious as life, those warm summer nights

Dream, obsession to me, a target for life.

But I’m never sure etc..

And I’m looking for a sign etc..

Could you ever be etc..

Will my dream etc..

I’m speaking etc..

I Woke Up This Morning

I got up early, I’m feeling great and on a Saturday,

You’re busy washing, I’ve had a shave,

You’re not obliged to stay.

We met just hours ago, don’t say I told you so,

Even my friends don’t know.

I caught you smiling, don’t laugh at those – that’s me on holiday

And if I ask you, are you ok? You’re not obliged to say.

We only met last night, I fell in love on sight,

I hope we’re doing right.

Close my eyes, count to five, pinch myself, I’m still alive.

Look around, I see you, it’s not a dream, it must be true.

Sometimes its called, fooling around, but in this case,

That’s not allowed.

I got up early, still feeling great and on a Saturday,

And when you ask me “am I ok?” Well what else can I say?

We met just hours ago, I really love you so,

Even my friends don’t know…

The Way You Made Me Cry

There’s a man who tends the bar I’m in this evening,

And he tells me I’m my own worst enemy.

Even so I’m still sat here on this barstool,

With only a gin for company.

I know it’s wrong to look for answers in a glass,

But the questions keep on coming and this cigarettes my last.

I know some things you done surprised me in the past,

But there’s still one thing I never thought you’d do.

I’d like to think about the way we met that night,

I’d like to think of all the warmth of holding tight,

But all I think of is the way you made me cry,

A thing I never thought you’d do.

All that I think of is the way you said goodbye,

And that’s the last I’ve seen of you.

I’ve spent many nights just trying to find a reason,

And my friends say I’m a fool to myself.

Even so another gin has just been ordered,

And the barman seems concerned about my health.

Last night I dreamt I smelt the perfume that you wear,

When I woke up in the morning I still thought you might

be there.

And I reached over but it’s only in despair,

‘Cos there’s still one thing I never thought you’d do.

A Promise You Can’t Keep

Love’s running away from me,

Through open eyes I still can’t see,

You, important part of me,

Walking on air, you’ll find me there,

Whats on your mind? Loves so unkind.

I waited hours for it, something so rare I held it

close, closer than ever now.

What could be near, and yet so far?

Love’s running away from me,

Through open eyes I still can’t see,

Where there is time, you could be mine.

Why dwell on past encounters?

At least they still affect us.

Time. ticking away from us,

Where there is time you still are mine,

Love’s running away from you,

Through open eyes I’ve seen right through,

Where there is hope – I think I’l cope.

Why wait in transit for it, rise up and

reach out for it.

Listen though things may go wrong

It’s forever, a promise you can’t keep.

I’ll wait a lifetime for it, I’ll rise, reach out

and then I’ll…

Soft Drink

I’m in need of something refreshing

Think I need a soft drink

Think I need something to calm me down, I get in a state,

Can’t seem to cope with mixing drink and work these days,

I’m going down, drown for the third time in the froth and dregs,

Try to walk across the floor but I can’t feel my legs.

Oh anyone here help me find my way to bed,

How can I hope to cope with an aching head?

Bababada etc..

Just let me feel the thrill of it fizzing up my nose,

I can even feel the blood returning to my toes

I’m going down, drown for the third time in the froth and dregs

Try to walk across the floor but I can’t feel my legs.

Oh anyone here got an antidote to take,

How can I hold my beer when I’ve got the shakes?

Bababada etc..

Think I need something to calm me down, I get in a state,

Can’t seem to cope with mixing drink and work each day,

I’m going down, drown for the first time in the froth and dregs,

Try to walk across the floor but I can’t feel my legs,

my legs, my legs…

The Wailing Wall

Find out there’s a lot to learn,

Seems such distress.

Looks like every move is planned,

Only to impress.

Find out its another day seems such relief,

Can’t you see, how else can I come to terms

With a time beyond belief?

I could get lost but someone always points the way.

I know there’s a lot at stake, must be some kind of mistake,

I’d give more, than I could take, I know I’ve taken beatings,

But all that’s hurt is feelings.

Look out there’s a way to go, only use some sense,

More or less seems like every word is planned

Just to cause offence,

I’m only one of millions struggling the the day.

I know there’s a lot at stake, must be some kind of mistake,

I’d give more than I could take, to meet with your approval.

I’ll wait for the second tide, I know that its cold outside.

Who cares if it dents my pride, I’m giving up all vices

To help me through this crisis.

Oh there’s a lot to learn, how can I come to terms?

Oh its another day, so much to say.

I could get lost but someone always points the way.

For You

Don’t wait up late – I wont be home tonight

Nor in the morning, don’t wait at all.

I’ve said my piece, I can’t say anymore,

How can you add to what’s said before?

I said life could be wonderful,

You paid no attention.

I saw all of the warnings but

I know, I’m wrong again.

Tears falling, hearts calling, out to you,

Eyes burning, I’m learning, what to do.

But if I had the chance to try and start again,

Though I don’t know when,

Still falling, still falling for you.

Don’t close your eyes, I want just one last glance,

I’m tired of talk of a second chance.

I’ve done it all, I can’t do anymore,

How can you add to what’s done before?

I said life could be wonderful,

You just looked right through it.

I thought I could control myself,

I know – I’m wrong again.

Tears falling etc..

Torn In Two & More Squit

Taking time off, from his work around the home,

He sits down and finds a message by the phone,

Thinking back to what he said to her last night,

It’s not worth it, he’ll give up without a fight.

She captured the spirit, she gave him hope

Without her comfort he cannot cope

Looks at the message, tears it in two

Looks at the phone now he ought to…

She is busy turning letters into type

It’s not easy doing things that you don’t like

Turns to thinking in her morning coffee break

Should she call him hopefully it’s not too late.

She can’t show her feelings, but she can’t hide,

Can’t hide emotions – it wouldn’t do.

All of her family all of her friends

Could be her downfall could be the end.

He gets bored and so he walks out to his car

He needs friends and he needs comfort of a bar

She is lying in her bedroom semi-dressed

Reads a book to stop herself from being depressed.

He drives through the night and he parks his car

Drinks to forget her, he goes too far

She shuts the book and turns out the light

He’s found another bed for the night.

Who Need’s it?

Blue eyes are nice what colour are those?

I can tell but not so loud

There’s a chance that I’d go to pieces

So I find who needs it.

Blue eyes hard to miss its no surprise

Make a wish then bow and die to your heart now.

Just one touch but I’m all over the place

I should know it’s not allowed

Just a word and I fall to pieces

So I ask who needs it?

Blue eyes hard to miss it’s no surprise

Make a wish then bow and die to your heart now.

I’ll survive though I’ll never sleep again

Not tonight, nor the next

When I can’t decide, should I turn and face away

Put it all right down to bad luck now.

Can’t decide, who needs it, just a word,

So who needs those…

Blue eyes hard to miss its no surprise

Make a wish then bow and die to your heart now.

The Old Spotted Dog (T.O.S.D.)

Listen now, I’m lost in an altered world,

I’ve chosen my way girl, now what’s yours?

Fade away, drifting to another day,

I’ve heard them come and say,

Where’s your heart?

You gave that, lost something,

I was the first on my block

with a heart,

So in two,

None could say,

Say I was taken with you.

Passed around, chasing things I’ve never found,

I’m glad when you’re around, I’ve no choice.

Laugh about, what do they laugh about,

What can they talk about

When we’re gone?

You gave that, lost something,

I was the first on my block

with a heart,

So in two,

None could say,

Say I was taken with you.
