Never Going Back AGAIN


I've got to get out 

I've been living too long in the city

I did what I planned

I did what I had to do 

Playing the radio as loud as I can

wind in my face , with the windows down

Direction motorway

I Gotta getaway

Dreaming of my future plans

Nah na na na na na na nah

Take me away

Take me away 

Nah na na na na na na nah

Never going back again.

Six years I survived 

in a one room dive, in the city 

I saw a man gettin stabbed, in a fight, cos he got in the way

I'm so glad to be out of this place 

give me room , give me plenty of space

Life is not fair

The people don't care

When you live your life at this pace.

Nah na na na na na na nah

Take me away

Take me away 

Nah na na na na na na nah

Never going back again.

Soon I'll be there

with an ice cold beer

watching out over the river 

sun in my eyes

Endless blue skies 

fresh air doesn't get any better

Doesn't get any better

I had good times

It wasn't all bad

On the streets that were paved in gold

It's just I wanted more than the bright lights of the city could give me

So please keep your neon signs

Your queues and your parking fines

Endless busy streets

Strange people that you meet 

Sometimes

Guitar solo

Yeah Yeah Yeah

Gotta get out , get out of the city

Yeah Yeah Yeah

The place that I love where I can be free

Yeah Yeah Yeah

I said take me on down ,take me down to the country

Yeah Yeah Yeah

It’s where I belong where I can be free.

WANTED POSTER


Wanted poster 

There going to hunt you down

Better not show your face in town

Hired gun going to track you down

There’s no safe place to be

Wanted poster

They know your name

They also know from where you came

They know that you broke a safe

Down in Kansas City 

They said it was you who robbed the bank

Pulled a gun and shot it at point blank

The cashier caught it and Against the wall he sank

He died in a pool of blood

Summer days and happy times

Out in the fields sipping wine

Kisses in the evening moonlight

And then it all turned grey

They came and took you away

My life, my love taken from me that day

Kick on the horse

And ride on out of town

Got to make cover

Before sundown

Posse chasing in your dust

Likely to track you down

Dead men Tell no tales you see

You make your threats

You make the kill

Last man standing..

Is the only way, when you are on the run

Did it even cross your mind

Families that have mourned and cried

The innocent man who lost his life

He never done you no wrong 

Any reason why you got no heart

devil took your soul 

Temptation took its part

Now there's nothing left of you

You’re half the man you were

Summer days and happy times

Out in the fields sipping wine

Kisses in the evening moonlight

And then it all turned grey

They came and took you away

My life, my love taken from me that day

like the seasons 

winter of your life

you had your reasons

they’ll take your life

Pinkerton agency on your trail

Had to hunt you down

Now your locked up in the county jail

hangman doing his job today

noose around your neck

thoughts in your head 

You’re not getting away

Wanted story of your wasted life

Made the paper in bold type

Tragic story of an outlaws life

sheriff got his man dead

NIGHTMARE


The world it is changing

Some say for the worst

Some say if we carry on going

The bubble is going to burst

Dump in in the ocean

Out of sight out of mind

What do you think in a couple of hundred years

They are going to find.

I had a nightmare last night

I hope it wasn’t true

I didn’t read the signs

We couldn’t face the truth

I had a nightmare last night

I hope it wasn’t true

I didn’t read the signs

We couldn’t face the truth

Statesman, Politicians

Please all heed the call

Every time a word is spoken 

A tree is going to fall.

Cut down all the Forrest’s 

fill the earth with disease

What do you think that in a couple 

Of hundred years they are going to breath

I had a nightmare last night

I hope it wasn’t true

I didn’t read the signs

We couldn’t face the truth

I had a nightmare last night

I hope it wasn’t true

I didn’t read the signs

We couldn’t face the truth

Playing with the future

The sparkle in our grandchildren eyes

We just turn our heads

And think what we are ,are we wise

Nature will turn on us

Turn the green into dust

What do you think that in a couple of hundred years

They’ll think of us

I had a nightmare last night

I hope it wasn’t true

I didn’t read the signs

We couldn’t face the truth

I had a nightmare last night

I hope it wasn’t true

I didn’t read the signs

I couldn’t face the truth

I had a nightmare last night

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW


I feel so happy I could shout. 

I got a lot to smile about.  

Every time I see your face.

My heart begins to race    

See you Looking back at me  

Feels the way it's meant to be 

That's when I really knew

You are the one for me.

Living on the edge I’m  looking down

It feels so good when your around

When we are together it feels so good

My feelings you have always understood

You learnt to pick me up

And you are forever in my heart

We been on high time

Fought through our hard times

Hand in hand we walked the road

Now this is our time

And you blow my mind

This song is just to let you know

The brightest colours I can see

They happen when you are with me

That's when I really knew

My life it needed you. 

Every time I see you face

My heart begins to race

Even in a crowded room

I can wait to be alone with you

We been on high time

Fought through our hard times

Hand in hand we walked the road

Now this is our time

And you blow my mind

This song is just to let you 

We been on high time

Fought through our hard times

Hand in hand we walked the road

Now this is our time

And you blow my mind

This song is just to let you know

THE BUSKER


I Sir ,  am just a troubadour 

Sitting here upon the floor

Throw me some change in my case as you pass me by

Sometimes I play these songs for you

Some of them old and some of them new

Others I make up as Time goes by

So long I wish you well

Over the hills and far away

I'll spread my wings and fly away

Pack up my troubles and get away

To a better life in another place 

But until then I'm the Busker

A Smiling face and an old guitar

Crowded pavement watching eyes from afar

Watching me play my songs like there's no tomorrow 

Escalators go up and down

Carrying people from all over town

I'm always looking for people to entertain 

A Windy street and a Rainy day

Get Washed away or play in the subway

Echoed notes reverberate they sound just fine

So long I wish you well

Over the hills and far away

I'll spread my wings and fly away

Pack up my troubles and get away

To a better life in another place 

But until then I'm the Busker

Over the hills and far away

I'll spread my wings and fly away

Pack up my troubles and get away

To a better life in another place 

But until then I'm the Busker

SUMMER ANGEL


Hot summer sun is beating on down

So today I got my head in the clouds

Sweet is the summer it’s my everything 

But you’re not here

I miss you near

Vs 2

Open top car with the wind in my face

I feel my heart and it’s starting to race

Adventures starting 

Loving water and beach

But you’re not here you’re out of reach

Musical interlude

Vs 3

Under the stars on such a clear night 

Look to the future they’re shining so bright 

Angel from heaven

I’m glad it was you

Stayed by my side

My secret you knew

Vs 4

You were the sweetest you fell Victim to life

Sun set too early, your life was unkind

Remembering, all your good deeds and love

Now you watch down from up above, from up above 

Chorus

I wish you were here x 3

I wish you were here, By me

Blue sky’s and sunshine

Well remember again.

Now summer is coming 

I remember my friend.

This hot summer sunshine

Is never the same

When I am knowing 

I never see you again 

Musical interlude

Vs 5

Hot summer sun was beating on down

So today I had my head in the clouds

Sweet was the summer, was my everything 

But you weren’t here

I missed you near

Vs 6

Under the stars on such a clear night

Look to the past they were shining so bright

Angel from heaven I’m glad you came through

Stuck by my side

My secret you knew

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah 

Yeah yeah yeah 

Life goes on, Life goes on, 

You were the sweetest you fell Victim to life

Sun set too early, your life was unkind

Remembering, all your good deeds and love

I wish you were here x 3

I wish you were here, By me

Blue sky’s and sunshine

Well remember again.

Now summer is coming 

I remember my friend.

Under the stars on such a clear night

Look to the future they were shining so bright

Angel from heaven I’m glad it was you

Stayed by my side

My secret you knew

Broken


Maybe there a better way

That we can work it out

We can find a way

To make it our's

Sun is breaking through

This cloudy sky

Or it it just  the calm before the storm. 

Must be a year ago

Driving through the town

See you standing there

Without a care

With another girl 

You walk off hand in hand

Catch your eye but you stare straight through me

now it's starts raining

thunder starts a rolling

I can't stand it

I feel that I'm a falling

The only thing right now

That interests me

Is the five year old child looking up at me

You, think the whole world revolves around you 

Have you had your heart broken in two

And you're the only one had dreams come true

How do you see it end

What goes through your mind

How can I forgive , is my love so blind

Oh We had it good

But We lost our way 

Can you hear the words

I'm trying to say

now it's starts raining

thunder starts a rolling

I can't stand it

I feel that I'm a falling

The only thing right now

That interests me

Is the five year old child looking up at me

You, think the whole world revolves around you 

Have you had your heart broken in two

And you're the only one had dreams come true

It's late again

You say you're out with friends

Telling truth or lies

While I'm singing lullabies 

It May break my heart to think

We'll never speak again

So Sick of hearing guilty alibi's

now it's starts raining

thunder starts a rolling

I can't stand it

I feel that I'm a falling

The only thing right now

That interests me

Is the five year old child looking back at me

You, think the whole world revolves around you 

Have you had your heart broken in two

And you're the only one had dreams come true

And you're the only one had dreams come true

Good Times Past and Gone


Jim was the closest that I ever got to love

When I first met him I thought he was sent from above

He used to buy me gifts perfume and other things 

It wasn't till much later on ,   It gave me time to think

Now he wants to tell me that everything is fine

Well that's really not what's going on in my mind

Been down on my life

Living on the top of a blade

Tried running but I can't hide 

Lie in the bed that I made

Boss man and his low life 

Breathing down my neck

I said look into my eyes man  and see if I'm coming back

Now he wants to tell me that's it ll be all fine

he said I better listen

and tow the company line

I said Whoa whoa Whoa 

good times are past and gone

Whoa Whoa Whoa 

good Time are moving on

I said Whoa whoa Whoa 

good times are past and gone

Whoa Whoa Whoa 

good Time are moving on

Past life was so good but I'll never see it again

It's a viscous circle that drives me to hell and back again

Luck it eludes me

The truth it's hard to bare

It's hard driving on the wrong side

No jokes till I get there  

He liked to gamble , he liked to cheat

Should have read the warning signs as we travelled down the street

I said Whoa whoa Whoa 

good times are past and gone

Whoa Whoa Whoa 

good Time are moving on

I said Whoa whoa Whoa 

good times are past and gone

Whoa Whoa Whoa 

good Time are moving on
