SUNSHINE

Say you’ll stay and the clouds go away and the sunshine sun shines through.

The you and I hit the bright blue sky and the sun shines sun shines through.

On a beautiful morning that came without warning.

With a beautiful feeling that’s got me believing.

 

In a beautiful feeling, that’s got me believing.

Such a beautiful feeling, that’s got me believing.

I see your eyes and you can’t disguise that the sun shines. Sun shines through.

I feel the heat from your smile so sweet and the sun shines. Sun shines through.

It’s a beautiful feeling.  That’s got me believing.

I’M FREE

If you want, I’ll set the scene for you and if you’ve got the time

 I’ll tell you all that you want to know about this life of mine

I’m not denying I’ve made mistakes in this life I’ve had

Look at where we’ve ended up, you’re angry and I’m sad

I’m so sorry so much time has passed like sand upon the breeze

Emotions are a memory now we’ve started to freeze

And I’m running from our shadow that will never go away

So if anyone’s been looking for me I’m somewhere far away

Where the roads are always open, food’s few and far between

And the countryside is rolling by and I’m tough, I’m free and I’m lean

 

It’s not working… we don’t talk

You just turn away… I just walk

How’d we get here? At what cost?

We got broken, we got lost.

It’s a pity, it’s a shame

We’re not perfect, who’s to blame

 

Nobody wants to be lonely and yet we all end up alone

We all ride the wave from cradle to grave

We’re born and we die on our own

 

If you find yourself out on your elbow

And you fancy a drive through the night

Catch me if you can I’m a travelling man

I’ll be somewhere just out of sight

I’ll be somewhere just out of sight

Because that’s me

I’m free

DEAD END

I’ve done it all or almost all, bought the tee shirt, run the stall.

Crashed the party ate the cake but it won’t matter ‘till I wake.

Friday night I’m feeling fine, smoked my lungs black drank some wine.

High and rising for today, tomorrow morning I will pay.

 

Bring it on, bring it on, party ‘till the break of dawn.

Don’t look forward don’t look back, here and now is where it’s at.

Starring in our own cartoon, let’s dance the dance and sing the tune.

High and rising for today, tomorrow morning we will pay.

This is going to hurt in the morning, I guess that I’ll just have to deal.

I’ve been teaching myself a few lessons about when life gets real.

I’ll see you when my eyes start shaking, I’ll call you if I need a friend.

Nobody will see me tomorrow, I’m off down a dead end.

 

 

 

REMEMBER JOE STRUMMER

 

In a woodland clearing there’s faces aglow, friends in a circle down by the rabbit hole.

Sweet sweet reggae music and the smoke from the wood.

From Babylon to Avalon via Cricklewood.

As the fire burns on, we’ll feel our spirits rise and we’ll sing our song as smoke gets in our eyes.

It’s the start of the summer and such a beautiful night.

We remember Joe Strummer, yeah we’re feeling alright.

A sip of strong whiskey some tobacco and weed.

The stories and laughter are all that we need.

As the fire burns on, we’ll feel our spirits rise and we’ll sing our song as smoke gets in our eyes.

And if you feel a yearning just say yes to the burning burning beautifulness.

You’ve got to go for it. You’ve got to share the love. You’ve got to stoke the embers.

For the fire above.

As the fire burns on, we’ll feel our spirits rise and we’ll sing our song as smoke gets in our eyes.

PAUPER’S FUNERAL

(Spoken)

No matter how much money you make in this lifetime man, you can’t take it with you. As John Lennon said, “You don’t take nothing with you but your soul. Spend it all while you’re still alive man.

Vincent Van Gough died homeless, cursed with mental illness.

Claude Monet had no money after being the king of pointillists.

Franz Kafka starved to death wracked with tuberculosis.

Hermann Melville and Henry Theroux all were broke at their time to go.

 

When my life is at an an end and I’ve got nothing left to spend I doubt I’ll even have enough to pay for a pauper’s funeral.

If I die whenever I die in a pauper’s grave I’ll surely lie.

Well I’ve been here and I’ve been there I squandered money everywhere

Without a penny to my name my poverty never bought me shame

If I die whenever I die in a pauper’s grave I’ll surely lie.

I’ve lived well and never saved so there’s no terror in the grave

And if I owe upon my death I’ll pay you back in failing breath

If I die whenever I die in a pauper’s grave I’ll surely lie.

I cannot pay I will not pay if I’m dead I’ve gone away

With empty pockets and an empty hand

I’m waving from a distant land

If I die whenever I die in a pauper’s grave I’ll surely lie.

I’m not scared and I won’t cry because I can’t afford to die.

(Spoken) Oscar Wile died penniless of cerebral meningitis. He was imprisoned for indecency and forced to live on charity. But he blew it all on alcohol and lived and died beyond his means.

Charlie Parker, William Blake and Edgar Allen Poe; all died destitute and in debt and how so no one knows.

OK LETS GO!!


Remember in the bad old days whenever we were younger

The money went and we spent the rent and nearly died of hunger

My stomach thought my throat was cut I’d never been so starving

With nothing to eat we hit the street to drum up a few farthings

Do you fancy a drink?

I wouldn’t say no!

Do you want to get drunk?

OK LET’S GO!!

 

We hitchhiked out to Blanchardstown to hit up my old man

 

He’s pretty poor but we were fairly sure he’d give us what he can

But by the time we got a lift it was nearly half past four

He’d spent his cheque getting wrecked and we found him on the floor

Do you fancy a drink?

I wouldn’t say no!

Do you want to get drunk?

OK LET’S GO!!

SANTIAGO

 

Sometimes life just lets you down day by day

Sometimes all the dreams you have fade away

When the only thing you look forward to is dying

 

Are you going to try to mend it?

Or are you going to try to end it?

Are you going to start crying?

Or are you going to start trying?

 

Won’t you take a walk

With the sinners and thieves

Until you find yourself a little relief

On the Camino de Santiago

Hit the open road

And when you find Yourself

Will you let me know?

BLACK IS THE COLOUR

 

Black is the colour of my true love’s hair, her cheeks are like red roses fair.

She has the sweetest smile and the gentlest hands, I bless the ground whereon she stands.

I love my love and well she knows. I love the ground whereon she goes.

I wish that day would soon come, when she and I can be as one.

 

Black isn’t evil in a world of upheaval, black can be beautiful, black can be peaceful.

Black are the powerful notes on a piano, black is eternal that ebony arrow.

Black is all around us, black everywhere. A little black magic in a black love affair.

Black is there waiting when we close our eyes, black holds the stars in the cold winter skies.

 

Black has it all in an absolute harmony, black has it all in it’s ominous armoury.

Black is a night of powerful danger, black is a gorgeous and wonderful stranger.

Black is humanity, black is our history, black is the future and black is a mystery.

Black is inside of you its in everyone, black is the colour that’s more than just one.

We’ll drink to the sky and we’ll drink to the sea and I’ll drink to you and you’ll drink to me.

We’ll drink to the sunshine when it shone, we’ll drink until our money’s gone.

We’ll drink to the birds and we’ll drink to the bars and we’ll drink to the moon and we’ll drink to the stars.

We’ll drink to seeing better days, we’ll drink until somebody says,

“Here lads we’ve run out of money again, get out the pipes and fiddles. Lets start a session and see can we get some pints bought for us.

Do you want to get drunk?

OK LET’S GO!!

CHRISTMAS 1914


CANDLES LIT UP TANNENBAUM
STILLE NACHT CALLED UP THE DAWN
THE KHAKI ARMY FELT REBORN
ON A FROZEN MORN IN 14
WHEN BOYS WALKED OUT INTO NO MANS LAND
EXCHANGING SMOKES AND OFFERING THEIR HANDS
SONGS WERE SANG ON THE BLASTED LAND
ON THAT CHARMED DAY IN 14
AND MANY’S A TALE’S BEEN WOVEN AND SPUN
HOW THEY PLAYED FOOTBALL AND LEFT THEIR GUNS
WITHOUT A THOUGHT OR A CARE WHO LOST OR WON
THEY WOULD FIGHT NO MORE AT CHRISTMAS
WELL THE NEWS CAME FAST TO THE HIGH COMMAND
THE GENERALS COULDN’T BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND
THE FRATERNITY OF THE COMMON MAN
WHO ALL BELIEVED IN CHRISTMAS
AND MANY’S A TALE’S BEEN WOVEN AND SPUN
HOW THEY PLAYED FOOTBALL AND LEFT THEIR GUNS
WITHOUT A THOUGHT OR A CARE WHO LOST OR WON!
THEY WOULD FIGHT NO MORE AT CHRISTMAS!
FIGHT NO MORE AT CHRISTMAS
FIGHT NO WAR AT CHRISTMAS

Through the dark waves!
And we’re not heroes!
We won’t be saved!
Only 7!
Lost pebbles in the Brine! !
We got dreams!

We’re guiding this craft!
Through the dark waves!
A gang of companions n’ !
Escaped slaves!

Strange faces in the wind! !

To believe in!
We need dreams to believe in!
We need dreams to believe in !

The Birds


Hi said the blackbird sittin on a chair
Once I courted a lady fair
She proved fickle and turned her back
Ever since I been dressed in black
Hi said the blue jay as she flew
If I was a young man, I’d have two
If one proved fickle and chanced for to go
I’d have a new string to my bow
Hi said the little little leather winged bat
I will tell you the reason that!
The reason that I fly in the night
Is because I lost my heart to the light
All that is and ever was
before words before words
All that is and ever was
Beyond words
LOVE IS FOR THE BIRDS
Hi said the hawk unto the crow
If you aint black then I don’t know
Ever since old Adam been born
You’ve bin accused of stealin corn
Hi said the crow unto the hawk
I understand you’re great big talk
You’d like to swoop down catch a hen
I hope the farmer shoots you then
All that is and ever was
before words before words
All that is and ever was
Beyond words
LOVE IS FOR THE BIRDS
FOR THE BIRDS
FOR THE BIRDS
FOR THE BIRDS

After The Fall


Bin memorising poets and their 4 letter rhymes
Talking on the telephone with an Alien Mind
Home is deranged
There’s nowhere safe
Its gone missin
Its missing
Tell me sweet Jesus who did Adam call
AFTER THE FALL
Kickin empty bottles on a broken boulevard
Addressing curses to the moon and stars
The City is deranged
There’s Nowhere SAFE
It’s gone missin
LOVE is missin
Tell me sweet Jesus who did Adam call
AFTER THE FALL
We ORBIT
In the dust of STARS….. BLINDED
FIRED in the Temple of Mars
4 Wounds
After the Fall
4 Wounds
After the Fall To understand This Bible
It’s written by a Fool
Cain makes Love to Abel
And there’s NO Golden Rules
The rules have changed
The Rules are DERANGED
They’ve gone missin
LOVE is missing
Tell me sweet Jesus who did Adam call
AFTER THE FALL!
We ORBIT
In the dust of STARS….. BLINDED
FIRED in the Temple of Mars!

WHEN YOU NEED SOMEONE


When You need Someone
When You need Someone
When You need Someone
I will hear the call
You been caught in the light of a bad satellite
And you’re walking in the night you’re all wrong not right
You’re looking for a betterway, a getaway, a rescue
When the sky’s fallin in and you’re cutting it thin
And you’re lickin up the pieces and startin again
you gotta find a way,a betterway to kill the pain inside you
You bin looking for love in a wilderness
In the shiny lights of excess
When You need Someone
When You need Someone
When You need Someone
I will hear the call
They’ve bin given you flack and you’re given it back
And your life is a war and your hearts on the rack
You’re looking for a betterway, a getaway, a rescue
When emotions attack and you think you’re gonna crack
and an icy finger runs up and down your back
you gotta find a way,a betterway to kill the pain inside you
You bin looking for love in a wilderness
In the shiny lights of success
When You need Someone
When You need Someone
When You need Someone
I will hear the call
