SOLITUDE

Had the sort of morning wish I’d stayed in bed
Had enough of them messing with my head
Shut myself away leave em all on the street
Sit down with your guitar play it nice n sweet

Trying to get a smile is like pulling teeth
Being so polite is giving me grief
Make a cup of tea don’t look me in the eye
Don’t pour a glass of wine it only makes me cry

Solitude

Arriving with an attitude
They don’t really care for me
Like you do
Depriving me of solitude
They don’t keep me company
Like you do

After all of this I’m going back to bed
Close my eyes and dream them dead

Arriving with an attitude
They don’t really care for me
Like you do
Depriving me of solitude
They don’t keep me company
Like you do

solitude
solitude
(had the sort of morning wish I’d stayed in bed…)

 

HERE IN YOUR ARMS

I was on my knees howling at the moon
You picked me up not a moment too soon
Now I’m walking with a spring in my step
Nothing’s holding me down, no regrets

Seemed like nothing was going my way
Now I know my luck has changed
Walk under ladders, step on the cracks
Now we’re together, no looking back

My life’s turning around
You turned my world upside down
I don’t need any lucky charms
When I’m here in your arms

You may call it chance, maybe it was fate
There was no time to hesitate
Cut the pack, roll the dice
Spin the wheel, don’t think twice

My life’s turning around
You turned my world upside down
I don’t need any lucky charms
When I’m here in your arms

 

WIDE OPEN

With my mouth wide open, you still don’t hear the sound
Words are just a whisper in your ear
So I turn the volume up, all you hear’s white noise
The shout is just a breeze blown past your ear

I’m waving, you look the other way
I need you
I’m waving, still you look the other way (is there nothing I can say )
I need you, but you turn around and walk away

With my arms wide open to catch the drift of you
It’s like I don’t exist at all
You see right through me to the other side
Unaware I’m there as you walk by

I’m waving, you look the other way
I need you
I’m waving, still you look the other way
I need you, but you turned around and walked away

With your eyes wide open you could see me dance
What will it take to make you mine?
If you see what I see when I close my eyes
We could be together, you and I

I’m waving, you look the other way
I need you
I’m waving, still you look the other way
I need you, you turned around and walked away from me

 

WEATHERPROOF

Button up your coat against the rain
Keep your collar up in case the wind blows again
Pull your hat over your ears
It’s just the weather
It’ll be different next year

Stretch out your fingers in your gloves
Count your blessings and your loves

Push your feet into your boots
And paddle in the tide
Take no bloody notice
When you’re told to come inside

Stretch out your fingers in your gloves
Count your blessings and your loves

Brush the cynics from your shoulders
Stop the rotten bastards from getting on your back
Stand up straight and show your strength
It’s easier to say it
But it’s the confidence you lack

Stretch out your fingers in your gloves
Count your blessings and your loves

You did it once when we first met
You were proud kept your doubt to yourself
Striding and loud it was good for your health

Button up your coat against the rain
Keep your collar up in case the wind blows again
