Lyrics

We’re all riding ‘cross the wild frontier

Wondering what kind of place do we have here ?

Our torches flickering in the forbidding dark

Like vehicles searching for a place to park

 

I hope we find it I hope we find it soon

I hope we find it  I hope we find it soon

 

We’re all strangers in the strangest of lands

Wondering how things got so out of hand

We bawl at each other like babies newborn

And line up on the shoreline to look for the dawn

 

I hope we find it I hope we find it soon

I hope we find it  I hope we find it soon

 

The drums are beating oh

The drums are beating oh

The drums are beating oh

The drums are beating oh (c)2014A.Newbery

Lyrics

 

We all carry a wound that won’t heal

We deny it but the wound is so real

It holds us back from glory it deals us a bum deal

Need I tell you just how bad that can feel?

 

We all carry a wound that won’t heal

We deny it, but the wound is so real

It’s a shield from others it keeps us from the day

Need I tell you that it won’t go away?

 

Sometimes it’s a dagger that pierces you through the heart

But sometimes it’s the catalyst that drives you to your art

Sometimes it’s a dagger that pierces you through the heart

But sometimes it’s the catalyst that drives you to your art

 

And there you are sitting neath the lights meagre ray

 Deep beyond the reaches of day

Making something beautiful to keep the pain at bay

And there you are sitting neath the lights meagre ray

 

How will you deal with it

How does it make you feel?

How will you live with a wound that won’t heal?

 

We all carry a wound that won’t heal

We deny it but the wound is so real

It holds us back from glory it deals us a bum deal

Need I tell you just how bad that can feel?

Lyrics

 

Tattoo these tears onto my face

They will not be a disgrace

I’ll wear them boldly, bold and true

In honour of you, in honour of you

 

Oh my dear dear companion

We were as close as close can be

 More than my friend, you were my champion

You meant so much to me, so much to me

 

Nobody knows about us No one knows about us ://

 

I scratch your name in the sand

Try to make me understand

I had you once I have you still

And always will and always will

 

Oh my dear dear companion

We were as close as close can be

 More than my friend, you were my champion

You meant so much to me, so much to me

 

Nobody knows about us Nobody knows about us ://

Lyrics

The Silver Ghost is coming Riding on the breeze

The Silver Ghost is coming Whistling through the trees

Bringing precious water Carrying blessed rain

The Silver Ghost is coming Bringing life again

 The Silver Ghost is coming Shadow paints the land

The Silver Ghost is coming Clouds fall from his hand

Bringing precious water Carrying blessed rain

The Silver Ghost is coming Life is new again

 

 

The Silver Ghost is coming

Whispering soft and low

The Silver Ghost is coming

Singing songs we know

Shining like the sunrise

Vital as a child

The Silver ghost is coming

Life is running wild

Lyrics

When I lay my head on the dry riverbed

And stare up at the sky

I think of you and the things you do

And my eyes start to cry

 

It’s so hard to want you so

Far from your company

You’re part of me and all I know

Is I want you here with me

I want you here with me

 

When I hide away from the harsh bright day

And blanket myself with woe

You keep me strong you keep me on

Why I’ll never know

 

Its so hard to want you so

Far from your company

You’re part of me and all I know

Is I want you here with me

I want you here with me

 

Take me to the place

Where I can see your face

How will I get through?

Til I’m again with you?

 

I see a light deep in the night

Like a shadow of a dream

I look down from a height things seem right

But things aren’t what they seem

 

Its so hard to want you so

Far from your company

You’re part of me and all I know

Is I want you here with me

I want you here with me

I want you here with me

Lyrics

Crazy For The Lovin’ 16/01/2009 I aint had no lovin’ since I don’t know when When will get some of that sweet lovin’ again? I’m crazy for the lovin’ I know my tongue wont split When I say offered the world All I’d want is it Saw a woman walking her little dog by the shore In my mind I saw myself beggin’ her for more Cause I’m crazy for the lovin’ and I find I have to have regular lovin If I’m to have peace of mind Oh for a time for lovin’ and lovin’ alone I tell you honestly I’d give everything I own (for sure) Oh for a time for lovin’ and nothing more Sometimes I think that’s all I’m living for (good Lord) The preacher says it’s trouble But I know that isn’t true How can it be bad if it takes away the blues? I’m crazy for the lovin And I don’t see why I can’t have sweet lovin Til the day I die Sittin’ in the dark watching images on a screen So beautiful I could cry But they’re not the best I’ve seen See I’m crazy for the lovin’ I just can’t explain Why thoughts of naked lovin’ are always swimming around in my brain I know I’ve lost the battle I know I’ve lost the war I’ve no defence against the lovin’ All I want is more Cause I’m crazy for the lovin’ It’s deep inside of me I would never count not wanting lovin’ Any kind of victory ©2009A.Newbery

Lyrics

Enough Is Enough  You act tough, you talk rough Nobody ever calls your bluff You’re so gruff when you strut your stuff But I’m so tired of all that stuff Because enough is enough, enough is enough Enough is enough is enough is enough I see your hand, upon this land Nobody challenges your command But understand, I, make demands I am going to take a stand Because enough is enough, enough is enough Enough is enough is enough is enough Though monster stand in the way Every dog must have his day Though he knows the big dogs bite Still he fights to make things right  You put me down with just a frown But now I’m getting up off the ground It’s turned around, wont be your clown I am driving myself to town Because enough is enough, enough is enough Enough is enough is enough is enough ©2009A.Newbery

Lyrics

Baby I’ve got a new companion

Her name is Deepest Despair

Seems she came a long way to haunt me

But I don’t know from where

 I awoke one morning

And she was just standing there

 

She decides my movements

What I eat, where I sleep

She selects my wardrobe

And the company I keep

It’s her that keeps me from you

Although she is always discrete

She’s a possessive companion

She wants for her own

Every time I rale against her

Her eyes chill me to the bone

Me and my companion

I’m starting to think that’s all I need

She escorts me everywhere

At her shrivelled breast I feed

She won’t release me from her spell

No matter how much I plead

Lyrics

Time To Go

Her father used to beat her He beat hard and slow

Her father used to beat me He beat hard and slow

He thought he had the power ‘Til his time to go

He thought he was an ocean But he was just a stream

Thought he was an ocean But he was just a stream

Thought he’d live forever But it was just a dream

Now it’s time to go boy Now it’s time to go

Now it’s raining on the desert It’s raining on the moon

Now it’s raining on the desert It’s raining on the moon

It’s raining on our dancing Crazy as a loon

She says: See me come and see me

Let your mind run wild See me come and see me

Let your mind run wild Visit and convince me

I am your little child

Now it’s time to go girl Now it’s time to go

She wandered through the wastelands

 Lost and very much all alone

It was love alone that found her

 Now she’s finally found a home (in my arms)

Lyrics

                        We Are One                                                    

 

There’s still magic

Magic in the air

You remind me

That you take me there

It’s the touch of your hand

It’s the way you understand

There’s still magic

Magic in the air

 

There’s still many

Mountains left to climb

Will you go with me

‘Til the end of time?

I could keep you from the cold

You could be my heart and soul

There’s still many

Mountains left to climb

 

You’ll find

You can depend on me

I find

I trust you endlessly

 

Now we see that

We are truly one

A product no doubt of

All our pain and fun

Life is never skittles and beer

But it sure helps to have you here

Now we see that

We are truly one

Lyrics

If I was a cowboy my horse would die

If I was a pilot I’d forget how to fly

All I think is woe

Woe oh woe is me

If I had a bicycle I’m sure it’d break

If I had a diamond it’d be a fake

All I know is woe Woe oh woe is me

Diddle diddle diddle Diddle diddle dee

If I was a farmer I’d lose my crop

If I was a drinker I wouldn’t know when to stop

All I know is woe woe oh woe is me

 If I was a monkey

 I wouldn’t know how to climb

If I was a poet I would run out of rhyme

All I see is woe, woe oh woe is me

Diddle diddle diddle Diddle diddle dee

If I was a gambler I’d show my hand

If I was a rock star I’d lose my band

All I see is woe, woe oh woe is me

If I was a cowboy my horse would die

If I was a pilot I’d forget how to fly

All I know is woe

Woe oh woe is me
