Seconds Out

Seconds out and I was down for the count With the whole room just looking down on me The truth she told it left me cold And I was floundering in some reverie Climbed to my knees and I begged her please Show me some sympathy Wham bam and I'm back down on the ground And I'm talking through a mouth of blood and broken teeth

I staggered home lonely and alone Bumping into every lamp post in my street Crashed through the door like a thousand times before Unopened letters stacked up around my feet I swore for my health and I said to myself Don't ever touch another one of these But I'm quarter to one and I'm in The Dog and Gun And I'm looking at the bottom of an empty glass again

Oh I know I'm in a hole Come on baby let the bad times roll Come on baby let the bad times roll

Fever

And I watch those flashing lights before my closed eyes Bright swirling images personal aurora flood The fever or the chemicals not sure which win tonight Or alcohol withdrawal following my respite

And you still won't come back to me After all you promised years ago Disappearing off to live your life In that sunny archipelago I can't conceal just what I feel Don't you know this love is real Fork in the road which path do you choose Different branch and you might lose

I will always remember us our first amazing kiss Almost falling off the kerb in heady emotional bliss And though it wasn't possible never meant to be Will always bring a smile to my face in the home for the elderly

And you still won't come back to me After all you promised years ago Disappearing off to live your life In that sunny archipelago I can't conceal just what I feel Don't you know this love is real Fork in the road which path do you choose Different branch and you might lose

Soldier

I'm gonna leave this place I'm gonna leave this place But it won't leave me Every single face Every tiny trace They won't leave me

I can't be free But I can't see That it is me Set me free

The dirt the pain the squalor The blood the screams the horror You're blind you're deaf you're missing You choose to understand nothing

Set me free Let me be I will set me free ...

Cheat

I asked you why you're so late again You said you missed the earlier train I never had the suspicious mind You can't believe that I'm so blind

Breaks my heart to know your lying In the dark can't you hear me crying out Hold my heart and keep on trying Try and rise above the doubt Either that or live without you I'm so blind

Why you cheat I just don't know But I don't wanna let you go So I choose to play this limelight game And I don't even know his name

Oh when I'm alone I get through the night getting stoned Drinking in a deep red wine Eases pain passes time Why can't I see Why can't I learn Why can't I see I'm so blind

Don't know how long I can stay like this I never felt your warmth through a single kiss My days are passing by I keep on asking why oh why

I can't see I can't eat I can't drink I can't work I'm so blind

Desire

Beautiful frustration Enforced isolation Ignore your modern defences Restore your primitive senses

Look deep into these eyes As they penetrate your soul Send shivers through your body Let me take control

Escape to the hill Behind the reservoir Stay until the moon And the stars begin to shine Relinquish your protection Live forever in this moment Conjoined in perfect union Let hearts and minds entwine

Emit your radiation My only consolation Too near for your own good Desire says you should

And when lips touch your neck And we've never been so close Scent eau de naturelle Gonna react on impulse

Pretty Much Perfect

Yesterday I was a dog destination kennels Anticipation and nervous excitement Will it be a holiday Or solitary confinement

The perfume from your perspiration, hot skin and suncream Those summer images keep me sane You wanna live in England You got to learn to love the rain

But tomorrow might be Pretty much perfect, pretty much perfect Swifts screeching through May's blue sky Bubbles from my G'n'T flying high Don't be afraid to let yourself go Life's no return so let it flow Cos tomorrow might be Pretty much perfect

If I had the nose of a dog I'd always be in trouble They say all comes to those who wait Give me more days like these And I would not hesitate

But tomorrow might be Pretty much perfect

Road Trip

Inspired by Le Tour De France coming to Yorkshire 2014

It feels like a hundred years Cos we've been waiting a hundred years Waiting for a winner from these shores Then we get two, one right after the other

We never really got to the party before now Sure we got close but no cigar up until now But this time the party's coming to our door Le grand depart de tour

It's a carnival of carnivals and it's coming to my town The world is watching us, the rise and falls the ups and downs So watch your back boys it's chess on wheels With legs of steel

This is a beautiful place Oh it's not perfect but it's a beautiful place A cracking backdrop for the ultimate race So bring it on bring it on

A million people line the street In yellow, polka dot and green And it won't cost you a penny cos it's free And that appeals to the Yorkshire man in me
