about

It was a simple premise: record a collection of strong, catchy and meaningful songs that resonate with the listener. Genre would be listed as light rock and pop.
These songs have been written over the last 5 years and have finally been realised fully with the help of Glen Gearing on bass and lending his voice to harmonies.

Track Name: Tell You For The Millionth Time
You don't need to tell me to drive safe
You don't need to follow me home
You don't need to be so worried
I'll be quite fine on my own

Oh you've nothing to fear
Baby it's clear
I'll still be here
And I will tell you for the hundredth time...

You can shoot me, run me over
You can stab me, set me on fire
You can push me off a cliff
But until I'm happy I can't die

These are funny times we live in
The jerk always gets the girl
Sometimes I wanna check out
But I'll always have a place in this world
And I'll tell you for the thousandth time...

You can shoot me, run me over
You can stab me, set me on fire
You can push me off a cliff
But until I'm happy I can't die

You can't change your ways in a a moment
You can't change what's already been
What's coming next, I am not scared
There isn't much I have not seen

Oh the days are long
My feelings gone
But I will go on
'Cos I will tell you for the millionth time...

You can shoot me, run me over
You can stab me, set me on fire
You can push me off a cliff
But until I'm happy I can't die
Track Name: As Long As You Were With Me
Lovers come and go
They leave a hole in our hearts
I don't want you to go, baby
This could be the start

I want you to hear me sing
And I need to tell you one thing
That you would never want for anything...

As long as you were with me
As long as you were by my side
As long as you were with me
I could forgive all my lies
Let's try

Moments come and go
They leave a mark in our minds
I just want us to grow
Leave our darker days behind
I'd run across the world
Just to hold you if you cried
Spend more time with me
You'll see I'm good on the inside
And you would never want to run and hide...

As long as you were with me
As long as you were by my side
As long as you were with me
I could forgive all my lies
Let's try

And you'd never be alone again...
Never be alone again...
Never be alone again...

As long as you were with me
We could both have a great life
As long as you were with me
There'd be no reason to cry

As long as you were with me
As long as you were by my side
As long as you were with me
I could forgive all my lies
Let's try

Darling, darling, darling
Darling, darling... as long as you were with me
Darling, darling, darling
Darling, darling... as long as you were with me
Track Name: The Story Of Your Life
You say "Don't worry, it will be fine
Just be the best that you can be"
That's easy for you to say
'Cos you've got everything you need

So you tell me I should forget
So you tell me "no regrets"

But what if you made mistakes?
And what if you caused a heart to break?
What if you sat by and idly watched as the world passed you by?
Oh what would you do?

You say "Don't worry, you'll find someone
There's plenty of other fish in the sea"
That's easy for you to say
'Cos you're in the place where you want to be

But what if you made mistakes?
And what if you caused a heart to break?
What if you sat by and idly watched as the world passed you by?
What if there was a way
A way to go back and change those days?
Then would you take it, run with it
Rewrite the story of your life?

Oh what would you do?
What would you do?

It's not easy to watch the winners from a place so far behind
It's not easy to leave and go to the happy place in your mind
No, no
No, no...

You say "Don't worry, I'm always there
For anything you ever need"
That's easy for you to say
'Cos you're a happy person indeed

Still I wonder what I would do
And I wonder about you

'Cos what if you made mistakes?
And what if you caused a heart to break?
What if you sat by and idly watched as the world passed you by?
What if there was a way
For you to go back and change those days?
Then would you take it, run with it
Rewrite the story of your life?

Oh what would you do?
Would you change it all?
Or just let it go?
And just leave it be?
Oh what would you do?
Track Name: The Astronaut
From way up here, Earth is blue and green
Shrouded in mist, an amazing sight to be seen
It's beautiful, but not as beautiful as you
I had to go, we've all got jobs to do

So hold me tonight
'Cos I may never come home again
Hold me tonight
These memories will have to keep me until then
So hold me tonight
Just hold me and don't let go
Please don't ever let me go

I could have said no, but that's not who I am
I have to help out in any way I can
You understand, and I understand that you will cry
To see you again I know I must not die

So hold me tonight
In the loving warmth of your embrace
Hold me tonight
Is this the last time I'll ever see your face?
Hold me tonight
Just hold me and don't let go
Please don't ever let me go

There are others here, but I'm on my own
They're talking to me but still I feel so alone
Countless stars shining in the night
And we're all hoping everything goes all right

So hold me tonight
A million miles away from the woman I love
Hold me tonight
I am dreaming of you as I float far above
Oh love just hold me tonight
Just hold me and don't let go
Please don't ever let me go

Don't let me go...
Don't let me go...
Don't let me go...
Don't let me go
Track Name: Girl At The Table Next To Me
I wonder about your life
And who you're going home to
Maybe you have nobody?

You look so beautiful
Would you talk to me
No, I don't think you ever would

You're just the girl at the table next to me
The girl at the table next to me

Would you say hello?
Would you tell me your name?
If I said I liked you
Would you tell me the same?

Oh but you don't know me
You're just the girl at the table next to me
The girl at the table next to me

I'm wondering as I stare
At your loveliness
If you've had a broken heart

Might see you again some day
Would you remember me?
No, I don't think you ever would

You're just the girl at the table next to me
The girl at the table next to me

Would you say hello?
Would you tell me your name?
If I said I liked you
Would you tell me the same?

Oh but you don't know me
You're just the girl at the table next to me
The girl at the table next to me

Oh but you don't know me
You're just the girl at the table next to me
The girl at the table next to me
The girl at the table next to me
The girl at the table next to me
Track Name: 1989
We would ride our bikes home from school
We would jump in our swimming pool
We would build castles in the sand
We would be living life without care

We would enjoy free afternoons
We would watch all the best cartoons
We would love Easter holidays
We would look forward to Christmas Day

A summer's holiday, by the window I'd stand
Looking out at Mother sitting in a chair on the sand
With a magazine in her hand
Those were the days
I'll always remember

Take me back to when our lives were easy
Take me back to no responsibility
To see again through my younger eyes
Oh life was so much simpler in 1989

Before radio lost appeal
Before emotions made us feel
Before there were deadlines to beat
And before we worked to make ends meet

A winter's night inside, by the fire I'd be
Listening to Father talk about his days out at sea
Oh the stories he'd tell for me!
Those were the nights
I'll always remember

Take me back to when our lives were easy
Take me back to no responsibility
To see again through my younger eyes
Oh life was so much simpler in 1989

Now time is my worst enemy
But time can't take my memories

I will never forget those days
I will keep our good times locked away
We were untouchable
We were invincible
And still I remember
I'll always remember...

Take me back to when our lives were easy
Take me back to no responsibility
To see again through my younger eyes
Oh life was so much simpler in 1989
Oh life was so much simpler in 1989
Track Name: Star Shining Bright
A life of lost and hopeless love
You're the beam of sunlight shining through
Some may have and some may not
But I know that I will have you

Like a star shining bright
Like a sun in the night
When you go I can't see
I can't get enough of you

Walk with me to the edge of the water
We'll look down and see ourselves as one
They try to tell us we are wrong
But our love is brighter than the sun

Like a star shining bright
Like a sun in the night
When you go I can't see
I can't get enough of you

Will you be the light in the sky?
To guide me as my world goes by

It's you, it's you that makes it real
And I wanna be closer to you

Like a star shining bright
Like a sun in the night
When you go I can't see
I can't get enough of you
You...
Track Name: This Girl
She's special in that different way
She's vibrant, that's what everyone says
She's honest, she'll tell you what's on her mind
She's everything part of me wanted to find

Don't hate this young girl if she is not always around
I guess I'm lucky she's not tightly wound

No matter the time, no matter the place
Alone in a room or out in the sun
The good times may only last for a day
Oh but this girl, she knows how to have fun
This girl, she knows how to have fun

Uplifting, and quick to make you smile
Confiding, will always talk for a while
So friendly, she'll take your hand in hers
She's everything I can't put into words

Don't judge her if she's with me and not with you
I guess I'm lucky to know someone so true

No matter the time, no matter the place
Alone in a room or out in the sun
The good times may only last for a day
Oh but this girl, she knows how to have fun
This girl she knows how to have fun

It may be a week, a month, or even a year
But sooner or later she'll be coming back here

No matter the time, no matter the place
Alone in a room or out in the sun
The good times may only last for a day
Oh but this girl, she knows how to have fun
This girl, she knows how to have fun
Yeah, this girl, she knows how to have fun
Oh, this girl, she knows how to have fun
Track Name: Those We Won't See Again
Do you ever lay awake
And think of how their smile
Turned the day a brighter shade?

Do you ever lay awake
And think of how they left
And you carried on with your day?

Don't forget their faces
They made your life feel better
Even if just for a little while

We need to always remember
Those we won't see again
We need to never forget about
Those we won't see again

Do you ever think about
When you were feeling down
They'd make bad thoughts go away?

Do you ever think about
What your life would be like
If they were still around today?

We need to always remember
Those we won't see again
We need to never forget about
Those we won't see again

'Cos they go their way and we go our way
Those we won't see again

For all the special people
There'll always be a place in our hearts
For all the special people
With whom you could only make a start

'Cos they go their way and we go our way
They go their way and we go our way
They go their way and we go our way
Those we won't see again
Track Name: It's Not You
I never thought I would see
Your face as you ate my dust
I never thought I would see
Myself holding the royal flush

You see that she's with me happily
And now I'm thinking "Oh sweet irony!"

I'm not a man to look down
But this time I will happily wear the crown
'Cos now I see you and you're the one alone

Someone's taking me home tonight but it's not you
Someone's taking me home tonight but it's not you

I always thought I would be
Not good enough for you
I always thought I would be
The only one telling the truth

Your eyes disguised the lies I despised
A lot sooner I should have realised

I'm not a man of high class
But this time I will happily raise my glass
'Cos now I see you and you're the one alone

Someone's taking me home tonight but it's not you
Someone's taking me home tonight but it's not you

All those times when you told me I wasn't good enough
All those times when you told me I didn't know how to love
You tried to bring me down
But now I've moved on and you're still alone

Someone's taking me home tonight but it's not you
Someone's taking me home tonight but it's not you

Someone's taking me home tonight but it's not you
Someone's taking me home tonight but it's not you
Track Name: Without Good Music We Would Die
For all the times alone in your car
For all the times when she's broken your heart
For all the times when you're damaged inside
You know without good music we would die

So sing it, sing it loud
Sing it like there's no one around
I'll tell you something I have found
Without good music we would die
Without good music we would die

For all the times when you've lost a close friend
For all the times when it feels like the end
For all the times when she said goodbye
You know without good music we would die

So sing it, sing it loud
Sing it like there's no one around
I'll tell you something I have found
Without good music we would die
Without good music we would die

So sing it, sing it loud
Sing it like there's no one around
I'll tell you something I have found
Without good music we would die
Without good music we would die

So sing it, sing it loud
Sing it like there's no one around
I'll tell you something I have found
Without good music we would die
Without good music we would die
