Intro
Hey soul sister, teacher, reach me, through the ether, down the line,
Hey soul sister, seeker, touch me across the distance, give some sign,
Verse
You say 'please don't stay’,
In 'the 'missing' every day,
After all, let it go and live, go on live,
You say 'lift your sprit high',
Leave 'the missing' where you'll cry,
It's an amazing time to be alive, be alive,

Chorus
Carry on carry on, take each breath, each moment,
Carry on, carry on, flying high, you can fly so high,
Set your sights up to the sky,
Carry on, carry on, take you with me, each breath, each moment,
Stay with me, hold fast, please try,

Verse
I say, I live each day,
Take my time to find my way ,

I say, I'm here, I'm alive,
Try to keep my spirits high,
Not in 'the missing' tho’ quite often I still cry,

Chorus
Carry on carry on, take each breath, each moment,

The Missing

Lullaby Lady
By Jane Hasler (3 song writers from Scotland)

Verse1
Child, close your eyes, and she’s comes now,
The Lullaby Lady, Lullaby lady,
Child can you hear? She sings soft songs,
Oh Lullaby Lady, Lullaby lady,

Chorus
Reach, take her hand now and she’ll fly with you,
Over mountains, up to the stars,
Jump over rainbows too and, see the world from afar,

Verse 2
Child, can you dance? Dance with her so fleet,
The Lullaby Lady, lullaby lady,
Child, and you smile, smile at her so sweet,
The Lullaby lady, Lullaby lady,

Chorus
Hold-on, take her hand now and she flies with you,
Over forests, and oceans dark blue,
High in the skies, moon beams touch, shining just for you,

Bridge
Slowly, she’ll carry you home,
Sleep child, sleep on,
Sleep child sleep till dawn,

Lullaby lady, lullaby lady oh, lullaby lady,
Lullaby lady oh the lullaby lady,
(fade out)

Lullaby Lady

Verse
Slowly night creeps along corridors dark,
Compelled to follow, unwilling to part,
Music and laughter carry up from the hall,
Fade to a whisper by irresistible thrall,
Chorus
I need to know all you feel for me,
I need to show all I feel for you,
To hold you close and wish,
You dare to hold me too,
And we’ll kiss,
Verse
The forbidden sweet trip of temptation,
Our glances of unspoken intent,
And so from doubt, came a thrill of believing,
To lead to this moment, this tumultuous evening,
Chorus
I need to know all you feel for me,
I need to show all I feel for you,
To hold you close and wish,
You dare to hold me too
And we’ll kiss.


Bridge
And in the darkness, I reach you,
Stumble into arms
Unfamiliar bliss
And in the darkness you reach me,
Your lips to mine, and we kiss

Chorus
I need to know all you feel for me,
I need to show all I feel for you,
To hold you close and wish,
You’ll dare to hold me too
And we’ll kiss.

Verse 3
All that we needed, all that we dreamed,
The closeness we craved, such long years missed,
Overwhelms us now, no way to resist
Holding fast in the shadows, in this first kiss

Chorus
I need to know all you feel for me,
I need to show all I feel for you,
To hold you close and wish,
You’ll dare to hold me too
And we’ll kiss

Kiss

Good days
Jane Hasler, Alan Blair Middleton, 2020

Chorus
Good days will come one more time
Going to take them, embrace them, make them sublime,
Hope we can climb, hold the lifeline
Hope it’s going to be fine
When the good days come one more time

V1
Tough times have been here,
Confusion and fear
Set up by big shots with too much to say
Flamboyant but blind to losing the way
Taking power trips, chasing cash dreams
Snaring us all in their greedy schemes
They couldn’t see what was coming
Too high a price, there’s no outrunning

Chorus
Good days will come one more time
Going to take them, embrace them, make them sublime,
Hope we can climb, hold the lifeline
Hope it’s going to be fine
When those good days come one more time

V2
Tho’ things are still rough,
Lost leaders still ramble,
But the spirit is fierce, it fights and scrambles
Look around, at all the good reaching out
Helping, healing, to turn it about
From consuming and harsh division
To a world of good, kind vision.
Good days will come sure enough

Bridge
We got to choose to hope, Try to dance, dance in the rain,
We got to choose to hope, sing our songs release the pain,

Chorus
Good days will come one more time
Let’s take them, embrace them, make them sublime,
Hope we can climb, find the lifeline
Hope it’s going to be fine
When the good days, they come one more time
Oh, oh hope those good days come, it is time
For the good days to be all yours and mine

Good Days

Verse 1
I don’t understand why, each time you let me through your heart’s door, (we could soar),
You turn so cold, like all we shared never went before, (I need more),
What happened to you long ago, makes you too scared to know? (scared to show),
How much richer we could be, and what being together could mean,
Chorus
I don’t understand why, I don’t understand why, I don’t understand why, tell me why,
Repeat line
Verse 2
I don’t understand why, still I’m not sure, (unsure),
For my need to know you offer no cure, (so insecure),
I’ve tried so often to reach out my hand, (understand) to give you love,
And make you feel safe and know, I’d never have let it go,
Chorus
Never let go, never let go, never let go I’d never have let it go,
I don’t understand why, I don’t understand why, I don’t understand why, tell me why,
Verse 3
I don’t understand why, perhaps never will, (unfulfilled),
What drives you to turn away from us still, (feel the chill),
For we have tasted something so sweet, (bittersweet,) when you’ve let our hearts meet (miss a beat),
Chorus
When our hearts meet, when our hearts meet, (so bittersweet,) when our hearts meet.
Never let go, never let go, never have let it go
I don’t understand why, I don’t understand why I don’t understand why oh tell me why

End stanza
I’ve tried and I’ve tried, can take it no longer,
I give nothing more, except hope whatever your fear one day is gone.
Fade out on I don’t understand why, I don’t understand why

I don't understand why

About Me

Bio

We are three song writing friends in Scotland. We have joined as song writers. Ideally we hope to sell our work so that it may be recorded by another artist/producer etc. Jane and Alan have written songs and lyrics over the years for themselves. Alan sometimes sings and performs with acoustic guitar at open mic venues and has taken part in amateur musicals. Jane also has been in bands and amateur musicals and sings in a local community singing group. Paul is an accomplished musician and performs a number of instruments (mainly guitar and bass) and provides backing vocals in different local bands, mainly in the west of Scotland for the love of music. We have worked together to create songs. This is with the hope of selling on some songs we create. We currently have 6 song/tracks in a range of genres and quite a few more more in development .There are also lyric only uploads on our pages where we haven't started any music compositions for these. On two of our tracks backing vocals are by Karen Ewing. She sings all vocals on This Lifetime Round.
