The Trees They Do Grow High (traditional)


The trees they grow high,
The leaves they do grow green
Many is the time my true love I've seen
Many an hour I have watched him all alone
He's young, but he's daily growing.

Father, dear father,
you've done me great wrong
You have married me to a boy who is too young
I'm twice twelve and he is but fourteen
He's young, but he's daily growing.

Daughter, dear daughter,
I've done you no wrong
I have married you to a great lord's son
He'll be a man for you when I am dead and gone
He's young, but he's daily growing.

Father, dear father, if you see fit
We'll send him to college for another year yet
I'll tie blue ribbons all around his head
To let the maidens know that he's married.

One day I was looking o'er my father's castle wall
I spied all the boys a-playing at the ball
My own true love was the flower of them all
He's young, but he's daily growing.

At the age of fourteen, he was a married man
At the age of fifteen, the father of a son
At the age of sixteen, his grave it was green
And death had put an end to his growing.


Wild Mountain Thyme (Francis McPeake)


Oh, the summer time is coming,

And the trees are blooming,

And the wild mountain thyme

Grows around the blooming heather.

Will you go, lassie, will you go?


Chorus:

And we'll all go together

To pull wild mountain thyme

All around the blooming heather,

Will you go, lassie, go?


I will build my love a bower

By yon clear and crystal fountain,

And all around the bower,

I'll pile flowers from the mountain.

Will you go, lassie, will you go?


If my true love, she won't have me,

I will surely find another

To pull wild mountain thyme

All around the blooming heather.

Will you go, lassie, will you go?


The Rose (Amanda McBroom)


Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
An endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
And you its only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dyin'
That never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose.


Annie’s Song (John Denver)


You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain,
like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you,
let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms,
let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you.
Come let me love you, come love me again.

You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain,
like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.


Bare Necessities (Phil Harris and Bruce Reitherman)


Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the tree
To make some honey just for me
When you look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at the fancy ants
Then maybe try a few

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Now when you pick a pawpaw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
Have I given you a clue ?

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

So just try and relax, yeah cool it
Fall apart in my backyard
If you act like that bee acts, uh uh
You're working too hard

And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true

The bare necessities of life will come to you


The Windmills Of Your Mind (Michel Legrand, Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman)


Round like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending on beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of its own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half-forgotten dream
Or the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle in your head
Why did summer go so quickly?
Was it something that I said?
Lovers walk along a shore
And leave their footprints in the sand
Was the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?
Pictures hanging in a hallway
Or the fragment of a song
Half-remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong?
When you knew that it was over
Were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of her hair?

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind


Streets Of London (Ralph McTell)


Have you seen the old man
In the closed-down market
Kicking up the paper,
with his worn out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride
Hand held loosely at his side
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news

So how can you tell me you're lonely,
And say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

Have you seen the old girl
Who walks the streets of London
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags?
She's no time for talking,
She just keeps right on walking
Carrying her home in two carrier bags.

Chorus

In the all night cafe
At a quarter past eleven,
Same old man is sitting there on his own
Looking at the world
Over the rim of his tea-cup,
Each tea last an hour
Then he wanders home alone

Chorus

And have you seen the old man
Outside the seaman's mission
Memory fading with
The medal ribbons that he wears.
In our winter city,
The rain cries a little pity
For one more forgotten hero
And a world that doesn't care

Chorus



She Moved Through The Fair (Traditional)


My young love said to me,
My mother won't mind
And my father won't slight you
For your lack of kind.
And she stepped away from me
And this she did say:
It will not be long, Love,
'Til our wedding day.

As she stepped away from me
And she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Move here and move there.
And then she made her way homeward,
With her goods and her gear,
And that was the last
That I saw of my dear

Last night she came to me,
My dead love came in.
So softly she came
That her feet made no din.
As she laid her hand on me,
And this she did say:
It will not be long, love,
'Til our wedding day.


The Bold Grenadier (Traditional)


As I was a walking one morning in May
I spied a young couple a makin' of hay.
O one was a fair maid and her beauty showed clear
and the other was a soldier, a bold grenadier.

Good morning, good morning, good morning said he
O where are you going my pretty lady?
I'm a going a walking by the clear crystal stream
to see cool water glide and hear nightingales sing.

O soldier, o soldier, will you marry me?
O no, my sweet lady that never can be.
For I've got a wife at home in my own country,
Two wives and the army's too many for me.


I Know Where I’m Going (Traditional)

I know where I'm going
And I know who's going with me
I know who I love
And the dear knows who I'll marry.

I have stockings of silk
Shoes of bright green leather
Combs to buckle my hair
And a ring for every finger.

Some say he's poor
But I say he's bonnie
The fairest of them all
My handsome winsome Johnny.

Feather beds are soft
And painted rooms are bonny
But I would leave them all
To go with my love Johnny.

I know where I'm going
And I know who's going with me
I know who I love
But the dear knows who I'll marry.


The Sound Of Silence (Paul Simon)

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence


In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence


And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence


“Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grow
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence


And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said “The words of the prophets
Are written on subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”


You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me

(Pino Donaggio and Vito Pallavicini English lyrics by Vicki Wickham and Simon Napier-Bell)

When I said I needed you
You said you would always stay
It wasn't me who changed but you
And now you've gone away

Don't you see
That now you've gone
And I'm left here on my own
That I have to follow you
And beg you to come home?

You don't have to say you love me
Just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever
I will understand
Believe me, believe me
I can't help but love you
But believe me
I'll never tie you down

Left alone with just a memory
Life seems dead and so unreal
All that's left is loneliness
There's nothing left to feel

You don't have to say you love me
Just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever
I will understand
Believe me, believe me

You don't have to say you love me
Just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever
I will understand
Believe me, believe me, believe me


Longer (Dan Fogelberg)

Longer than there've been fishes
In the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars
Up in the heavens
I've been in love with you.

Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you.

I'll bring fires in the winters
You'll send showers in the springs
We'll fly through the falls and summers
With love on our wings.

Through the years as the fire
Starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the
Pages start to yellow
I'll be in love with you.

Longer than there've been fishes
In the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars
Up in the heavens
I've been in love with you
I am in love with you...


Lonely Boy (Andrew Gold)

He was born on a summer day, 1951
And with the slap of a hand
He had landed as an only son
His mother and father said "what a lovely boy"
We'll teach him what we learned
Ah yes, just what we learned
We'll dress him up warmly and
We'll send him to school
It'll teach him how to fight
To be nobody's fool

Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy


In the summer of '53 his mother
Brought him a sister
But she told him "we must attend to her needs"
"She's so much younger than you"
Well, he ran down the hall and he cried
Oh, how could his parents have lied
When they said he was an only son
He thought he was the only one

Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy


He left home on a winter day, 1969
And he hoped to find all the love
He had lost in that earlier time
Well, his sister grew up
And she married a man
He gave her a son
Ah yes, a lovely son
They dressed him up warmly
They sent him to school
It taught him how to fight
To be nobody's fool

Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy


Desperado (Don Henley and Glenn Frey)

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you
Can hurt you somehow

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She'll beat you if she's able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you, before it's too late


Sway (Richard Melville Hall)


When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more

Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance you have a way with me
Stay with me, sway with me

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway I go weak

I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now


The Way We Were (Marvin Hamlisch)

Memries,
Like the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were


Scattered pictures,
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were


Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or has time re-written every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we? could we?


Memries, may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember...
The way we were...
The way we were...


The Water Is Wide (Traditional)

The water is wide, I cannot get o'er

And neither have I wings to fly,

Build me a boat that can carry two

And both shall row, my love and I.


I leaned my back up against an oak,

To find it was a trusty tree,

I found you true, love, when first you spoke,

‘tis true you are, and ever shall be.


The water is wide, I cannot get o'er

And neither have I wings to fly,

Build me a boat that can carry two

And both shall row, my love and I.


The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Ewan MacColl)


Bottom of Form 1

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies, my love
To the dark and the endless skies


And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love
That was there at my command, my love


And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time, my love
And it will last till the end of time, my love

The first time ever I saw your face, your face
Your face, your face

Vincent (Don McLean)

Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

For they could not love you
But still your love was true
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night

You took your life, as lovers often do
But I could've told you Vincent
This world was never meant for
One as beautiful as you

Starry, starry night
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frame-less heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget

Like the strangers that you've met
The ragged men in ragged clothes
The silver thorn of bloody rose
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

Now I think I know
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they're not listening still
Perhaps they never will


The Road To The Isles (Traditional)

A far croonin' is pullin' me away
As take I wi' my cromack to the road.
The far Coolins are puttin' love on me
As step I wi' the sunlight for my load.


Sure by Tummel and Loch Rannoch and Lochaber I will go
By heather tracks wi' heaven in their wiles.
If it's thinkin' in your inner heart the braggart's in my step
You've never smelled the tangle o' the Isles.
Oh the far Coolins are puttin' love on me
As step I wi' my cromack to the Isles.


It's by Shiel water the track is to the west
By Aillort* and by Morar to the sea
The cool cresses I am thinkin' of for pluck
And bracken for a wink on Mother knee.


The blue islands are pullin' me away
Their laughter puts the leap upon the lame
The blue islands from the Skerries to the Lews
Wi' heather honey taste upon each name.


Rainbow (Glyn Hyde)

You get out of the car

And turn to close the door

I watch you as I drive away

Like a hundred times before

I read all of the words

But the story must have changed

I’m looking at a picture

Slightly rearranged

You were


You were me and I was you

I was you and you were me

So much more than friends

We had the same identity

But now I see that it wasn’t true

It scrambles up my mind

When we had a shining rainbow

And a pot of gold to find

You were me and I was you (Rainbow)

I was you and you were me (Rainbow)


 I listen to this story

And find the darkest place

A symptom of too much of everything

That is written on your face

The fuse burns ever shorter

And I see it’s going to blow

I thought this through so many times

But I don’t want it to show

You were


Am I going crazy

Did I make it up myself

Break down the limitations

Leave that book up on the shelf

I had not realised

What it was that you went through

I saw a lightness in your soul

But there is sadness in there too

You were


Is this the end

Or are we still alive

I’m spinning my wheels and going nowhere

When all I want to do is drive

You got to show respect

And stand up for what is right

You’ll know it when you see it

And might find yourself tonight


Always On My Mind (Wayne Carson, Johnny Christopher and Mark James)


Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time


You were always on my mind
(You were always on my mind)
You were always on my mind


Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
If I make you feel second best
Girl, I'm so sorry I was blind


You were always on my mind
(You were always on my mind)
You were always on my mind


Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied


Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
(You are always on my mind)
You were always on my mind

Only Love (Glyn Hyde)

By Thursday,

I was so tired and in despair,

Our show was done,

And the cost would test a millionaire

The nightmare I found

Was no rehearsal

The feeling I had

Was universal


Would you sleep

Through the call

If I phoned you one last time

Don’t know when

But someday

The sun will shine again


I called

To say goodbye

No hope

I had to try

Three words

Said so many times

I’d said them again if I could

For love was the thing we both understood

Only love


They all say

The same thing whenever they can call

Standing tall

To set against the horror of it all

Last words to say as consolation

Nothing to be lost in poor translation


I called

To say goodbye

No hope

I had to try

Three words

Said so many times

I’d said them again if I could

For love was the thing we both understood

Only love


Love is all we have

When we are afraid

Trying through the tears

To find the words to say

Love is all we have




We Don’t Talk Anymore (Alan Tarney)

Used to think that life was sweet.
Used to think we were so complete.
I can't believe you'd throw it away.

Used to feel we had it made.
Used to feel we could sail away.
Can you imagine how I feel today.
Well it seems a long time ago you were the lonely one.
Now it comes to letting go you are the only one.
Do you know what you've done.

It's so funny how we don't talk anymore.
It's so funny why we don't talk anymore.
But I ain't losing sleep and I ain't counting sheep.
it's so funny how we don't talk anymore.

Well it really doesn't matter to me.
I guess you're leaving was meant to be.
It's down to you now you want to be free.
Well I hope you know which way to go you're on your own again.
And don't come crying to me when you're the lonely one.
Remember what you've done.

It's so funny how we don't talk anymore.
It's so funny why we don't talk anymore
But I ain't losing sleep and I ain't counting sheep.
It's so funny how we don't talk anymore.

But I ain't losing sleep and I ain't counting sheep.
It's so funny how we don't talk.

But I ain't losing sleep and I ain't counting sheep.
It's so funny how we don't talk.


Be Upbeat (Glyn Hyde)

I like to think of myself

As a rational man

I work out the odds

The best that I can

I expect things to turn out well

Though they often won’t

Expect relationships to last

Though they often don’t

I didn’t worry about my job

Until they took it away

I don’t think I’m dying

Though I’m feeling this pain

I’m a success

My kids will do better still

I’m going to have a long life

People say I won’t but I know I will


Ooh la la la

I know I’m biased

We all feel the same

But my chances are highest

Still playing when I grow up

Even though I’m grown

My glass is still half full

La la la la la lull


I won’t go down

When the news is bad

All the threats out there

Won’t make me sad

We’ve all been down

But we’re coming back up

I’ve been down too

But I’ll drink from the cup

You can save your pep talk

And your smiley face

Got my running shoes on

I’m back in the race

Feel it in your bones

Feel it in the backbeat

Keep faith in the future

Gotta be upbeat


I don’t need no doctor

To check on my health

I don’t need no bank

To take care of my wealth

I don’t wanna screen

To keep me away from the sun

I might bet the farm

If I thought it was fun

I keep moving forward

And looking for sights

I’m out of the cave

And I’m loving the light

Gonna work real hard

And get paid what I’ve earned

If she walks away now

I’ll think of all that I’ve learned


Ooh la la la

I keep my mind at ease

Keep away from stress

Run with the breeze

Don’t live in the past

Even though I’ve got one

The best is still to go

La la la la lull


Bohemian Rhapsody (Freddie Mercury)

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.

Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Anyway the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away.

Mama, ooh,
Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sent shivers down my spine,
Body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

Mama, ooh (anyway the wind blows),
I don't wanna die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
(Galileo) Galileo.
(Galileo) Galileo,
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico.

I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Never, never let you go
Never let me go, oh.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go.)
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

(Oh, yeah, oh yeah)

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Anyway the wind blows.


When You Lose All Desire (Glyn Hyde)

I know how it feels

I’ve been there myself

Want to keep from getting too close

It’s not good for your health


I’m not one to judge

You don’t want to be used

You don’t even want to hold my hand

I can see you’re confused


What is the point you ask me

When we are all getting old

The choice is unattractive and

This kind of love leaves me cold


Will you flinch if I touch you

Run if I try to kiss

I guess it goes like this

When you lose all your desire

And can’t find love

Can’t find love


I don’t want to be married from now till the grave

I don’t know about the future, but it’s not mine to save

I can’t be bothered, it’s too complicated

Falling in love is so over rated


But I want to talk heart to heart

And skin to skin

I want the heat of human warmth

And this is how it begins



A Hard Day’s Night (Lennon/McCartney)

It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog

It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log

But when I get home to you I find the things that you do

Will make me feel alright


You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things

And it's worth it just to hear you say you're going to give me everything

So why on earth should I moan, cos when I get you alone

You know I feel OK


When I'm home everything seems to be right

When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah


It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog

It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log

But when I get home to you I find the things that you do

Will make me feel alright


So why on earth should I moan, cos when I get you alone

You know I feel OK


When I'm home everything seems to be right

When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah


It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog

It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log

But when I get home to you I find the things that you do

Will make me feel alright

You know I feel alright

You know I feel alright

Wisdom (Glyn Hyde)


Been around for a long, long time

(Long long time)

Still don’t know too much

(Don’t know too much)

I’m a small part of history

(History)

I’m just a man

Just a man

(ooh ooh oh)

Didn’t worry when I was young

(When I was young)

Then I started to change

(Started to change)

I wanna behave in a different way

(Different way)

I’m just a man

Just a man

(ooh ooh oh)


Wisdom is spreading around

It’s making me think

Wisdom comes from the land

It’s making the link

With knowledge comes the skill

You get what you need to make me thrill

Wisdom gives what I need

With you forever

Wisdom marks out the path

With you whatever

This is my way to lay it out

To set aside all my fear and doubt


You know how I like to talk

(I like to talk)

And share the little I know

(Little I know)

I want us to be as one

(To be as one)

I’m just a man

Just a man

You know I have no beliefs

(No beliefs)

Don’t care for dollars and cents

(Dollars and cents)

I’ll trade what I have for yours

(Mine for yours)

I’m just a man

Just a man


I don’t want to tame you

Our time has simply flown

I’ll work hard and long

And I’ll give up those things I own

How I feel ain’t gonna to change

Of you I can never tire

There’s no way I can have too much

Or satisfy all my desire


Earth Song (Michael Jackson)


What about sunrise

What about rain

What about all the things

That you said we were to gain...

What about killing fields

Is there a time

What about all the things

That you said was yours and mine...

Did you ever stop to notice

All the blood we've shed before

Did you ever stop to notice

The crying Earth the weeping shores?


Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh


What have we done to the world

Look what we've done

What about all the peace

That you pledge your only son...

What about flowering fields

Is there a time

What about all the dreams

That you said was yours and mine...

Did you ever stop to notice

All the children dead from war

Did you ever stop to notice

The crying Earth the weeping shores


Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh


I used to dream

I used to glance beyond the stars

Now I don't know where we are

Although I know we've drifted far


Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh


Hey, what about yesterday

(What about us)

What about the seas

(What about us)

The heavens are falling down

(What about us)

I can't even breathe

(What about us)

What about apathy

(What about us)

I need you

(What about us)

What about nature's worth

(Ooo, ooo)

It's our planet's womb

(What about us)

What about animals

(What about it)

We've turned kingdoms to dust

(What about us)

What about elephants

(What about us)

Have we lost their trust

(What about us)

What about crying whales

(What about us)

We're ravaging the seas

(What about us)

What about forest trails

(Ooo, ooo)

Burnt despite our pleas

(What about us)

What about the holy land

(What about it)

Torn apart by creed

(What about us)

What about the common man

(What about us)

Can't we set him free

(What about us)

What about children dying

(What about us)

Can't you hear them cry

(What about us)

Where did we go wrong

(Ooo, ooo)

Someone tell me why

(What about us)

What about babies

(What about it)

What about the days

(What about us)

What about all their joy

(What about us)

What about the man

(What about us)

What about the crying man

(What about us)

What about Abraham

(What about us)

What about death again

(Ooo, ooo)

Do we give a damn


Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh


Rest Now (Glyn Hyde)


Sprawled across the grass, oh,

Run out of gas, oh, oh, oh

There has to be a reason

In the whipping wind, oh,

Sun burning our skin, oh, oh, oh

There has to be a reason

I know you rely on me

It ties me down when I want to be free

There has to be a reason


Mama it’s your time to rest now

Mama it’s your time to rest now

Mama it’s your time to rest now

Mama it’s your time to rest

Mama it’s your time to rest now

Mama it’s your time to rest now

Mama it’s your time to rest now

Mama it’s your time to rest


The past is another country, oh,

Sometimes it just won’t be, oh, oh, oh

Don’t feel that way today

When I saw the biscuit tin, oh,

All the pictures stored within, oh, oh, oh,

Don’t feel that way today

In this place where nothing grew

We did what we had to do

Don’t feel that way today


I met a little girl and I took her home

She cried all the way so I let her roam

She tells me what’s right and what’s wrong

When to give and when to be strong

She reminds me of what we can do to each other

Mother, father, sister and brother

It’s there in our history

Just how cruel we can all be


With Or Without You (Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Paul Hewson, Larry Mullen)


See the stone set in your eyes

See the thorn twist in your side

I'll wait for you


Sleight of hand and twist of fate

On a bed of nails she makes me wait

And I wait without you


With or without you

With or without you


Through the storm, we reach the shore

You gave it all but I want more

And I'm waiting for you


With or without you

With or without you

I can't live with or without you


And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give, and you give

And you give yourself away


My hands are tied, my body bruised

She got me with nothing to win

And nothing left to lose


And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give, and you give

And you give yourself away


With or without you

With or without you

I can't live

With or without you

With or without you

With or without you

I can't live

With or without you

With or without you

Hard To Believe (Glyn Hyde)


If I told you something

Good was bad, bad

Would you take it from me

Would you think me mad or sad


It’s hard to believe

That you are here with me

Hard to believe

Though I can touch and see

If this really is love

Then it’s hard to believe

So hard


Some think the moon landings

Were only fakes, fakes

Don’t know what will happen

When the fear awakes, awakes


Oh, oh, I want the facts

What is right and wrong

Oh, oh, I want the truth

To last my whole life long


Fame (David Bowie)


Fame, makes a man take things over

Fame, lets him loose, hard to swallow

Fame, puts you there where things are hollow

Fame

Fame, it's not your brain, it's just the flame

That burns your change to keep you insane

Fame

Fame, what you like is in the limo

Fame, what you get is no tomorrow

Fame, what you need you have to borrow

Fame

Fame, "Nein! It's mine!" is just his line

To bind your time, it drives you to, crime

Fame

Could it be the best, could it be?

Really be, really, babe?

Could it be, my babe, could it, babe?

Really, really?

Is it any wonder I reject you first?

Fame, fame, fame, fame

Is it any wonder you are too cool to fool


Fame

Fame, bully for you, chilly for me

Got to get a rain check on pain

Fame

Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame,

fame

Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame,

fame

Fame, fame, fame

Fame

What's your name?

Rhythm (Glyn Hyde)


I’m walking

Where people have stood for a thousand years

Faces seem bored

But I can still taste the tears

Echoes of voices

Tongues forming into one

The cobbled roads

Show me the way where there was none


A man sits as still as a monk

I wish I was at ease like him

The sound of the city swirls around

It’s all part of the rhythm

A child cries, cries for its mother

Two men drink, drinking as they talk

Something reaches out, reaches out

To touch me as I walk


A woman sits, her face is set

She’s determined to sell

A couple toss a coin

As they pass a wishing well

Some boys look

At young women passing by

Someone calls out

But no one can hear his cry


Yes I’m lonely and missing you

Where are you now I wish I knew

When you were here I felt so alive

But since you been gone I barely survive

Yes I’m lonely and still missing you

What are you doing I wish I knew

Are you fit and well have you fallen ill

I wish I could hold you when you feel the chill

I’m standing here and I’m missing you

What are you thinking I wish I knew

The Old City sounds bring back memories

Of places we saw when you were with me


Frozen (Madonna Ciccone and Patrick Leonard)


You only see what your eyes want to see

How can life be what you want it to be

You're frozen when your heart's not open


You're so consumed with how much you get

You waste your time with hate and regret

You're broken when your heart's not open


Mmm, mmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmm, mmm, we'd never be apart

Mmm, mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, mmm, you hold the key


Now there's no point in placing the blame

And you should know I suffer the same

If I lose you my heart will be broken


Love is a bird, she needs to fly

Let all the hurt inside of you die

You're frozen when your heart's not open


Mmm, mmm, if I could melt your hear,

Mmm, mmm, we'd never be apart

Mmm, mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, mmm, you hold the key


You only see what your eyes want to see

How can life be what you want it to be

You're frozen when your heart's not open


Mmm, mmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmm, mmm, we'd never be apart

Mmm, mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, mmm, you hold the key

Fight The Black Dog (Glyn Hyde)

Am I done?

Can start anew?

Got no problem with the plans

Will work them through

I’m in a fix

Too many shadows with too many questions

Winter is a coming

Gonna make an impression


We stand here alone

And tears are starting to flow

Got to work out what divides us

Get back to what we know

Clear a way through the fog and find

A way to fight the black dog


Get it all in the open

Make it crystal clear

Don’t forget what we care for

Don’t forget why we’re here

Clear a way through the fog and find

A way to fight the black dog


Sometimes it’s just absurd

Sometimes it’s unseen

We get lost in confusion

Don’t say what we mean

Clear a way through the fog and find

A way to fight the black dog


A flood after a drought

Washes everything away

My mind flits through the past

Searching through our days


Even though they look like a ruin

My memories could be fakes

I’m dancing over troubles

Belief is all it takes


Things look bad

But it’s real

There’s no need to worry

Let’s speak how we feel

It’s been a long road

Too many problems and too many choices

I don’t need to look

To know what the noise is


Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me (Elton John & Bernie Taupin)

I can't light no more of your darkness

All my pictures seem to fade to black and white

I'm growing tired and time stands still before me

Frozen here on the ladder of my life


Too late to save myself from falling

I took a chance and changed your way of life

But you misread my meaning when I met you

Closed the door and left me blinded by the light


Don't let the sun go down on me

Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see

I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free

But losing everything is like the sun going down on me


I can't find, oh the right romantic line

But see me once and see the way I feel

Don't discard me just because you think I mean you harm

But these cuts I have they need love to help them heal

Cliffs (Glyn Hyde)


On the cliffs,

That’s where I stand,

Got my head

In both of my hands,

Watch the sea,

It chops away,

At everything,

That would make me want to stay


The path to the beach twists and bends

The road closed sign shows where it ends

My defence can’t resist the waves

The cracks in the  face look as deep as caves


It’s like being on holiday all year

The sun never set and the sky was clear

Then came the night when the earth started shaking

Didn’t know the value of all that it was taking


The waters rose but I haven’t drowned

It gets harder and harder that’s what I found

The sea in a rage and the storms get worse

What felt like love now feels like a curse


If you fix one thing then another will break

I’ve got an idea for a direction to take

Gonna lay some peat and add some soil

I’ve got nothing to give but my heart and toil

Wonderful Land (Jerry Lordan)
