Flamboyant
Lyrics by: Trevor Johnson

Chorus
I’m sorry if I ramble on
But I hope you don’t get too flamboyant
It can only lead to disappointment
When your glitter starts to fade

Verse one
All the pretty boys want to be near
Drawn like moths to the light
The signals you send out are very clear
The centre of attraction every night

Chorus
I’m sorry if I ramble on
But I hope you don’t get too flamboyant
It can only lead to disappointment
When your glitter starts to fade

Verse two
You think that you’re a real trend setter
You don’t want it to end
There is no way your life could get better
Full adoration of your so called friends

Bridge
It’s sad when the glitter fades
Disappointment only follows
It’s sad when the glitter fades
Disappointment only follows

Verse three
I have been there, so listen to me
In that fantasy world
Is this really what you want to be
Green eye shadow and your false lashes curled

Chorus
I’m sorry if I ramble on
But I hope you don’t get too flamboyant
It can only lead to disappointment
When your glitter starts to fade

Verse four
Don’t think that this is how it will stay
They’re gonna do you wrong
You’ll be all alone as they walk away
When the next more flamboyant comes along

Outplay
Don’t get too flamboyant
It will lead to disappointment
Don’t get too flamboyant
It will lead to disappointment

In my Head
© 2020 Lyrics by: Trevor Johnson

Verse one
When will I find?
What I’m searching for
A peace of mind
Since you walked out the door

Chorus
The things you said
Are in my head
Talk to myself
In my head

Verse two
When things go wrong
I still have my pride
I can be strong
I keep it all inside

Chorus
The things you said
Are in my head
Talk to myself
In my head

Bridge
In my head
The things you said
In my head
The things you said

Verse three
To save my face
Anger not to show
I have a place
Where only I can go

Chorus
The things you said
Are in my head
Talk to myself
In my head

Verse four
Do you feel shame?
That this is the end
You are to blame
But I’ll still be your friend

Chorus
The things you said
Are in my head
Talk to myself
In my head

Outplay
In my head
Talk to myself
In my head

Reconsider
© 2020 Lyrics by: Trevor Johnson


Verse one
Why did it happen this way
You know I wanted to stay
All you had to do was
Reconsider

Verse two
In my eyes you did not see
The urgency of my plea
I was begging you to
Reconsider

Chorus
It doesn’t matter who’s right or wrong
Just reconsider
You’ll see things differently if you
Just reconsider
Don’t miss the chance to
Reconsider

Verse three
Now that you are all alone
Your heart heavy as a stone
But it’s not too late to
Reconsider

Verse four
So give our love one more try
It’s so wrong to let it die
I am asking you to
Reconsider

Chorus
It doesn’t matter who’s right or wrong
Just reconsider
You’ll see things differently if you
Just reconsider
Don’t miss the chance to
Reconsider

Inside My Head
© 2020 Lyrics by: Trevor Johnson

Verse one
I know that many years ago
I should have let my feelings show
I never tried to find a way
To tell what I wanted to say
But I hope the words of this song
Will show what I felt for so long

Chorus
I loved you inside my head
Something I should have said
What you mean to me
What you’ll always be
The one I loved inside my head

Verse two
You had the looks that made heads twirl
The envy of every girl
All the boys tried hard to impress
But you chose me from all the rest
The looks we got made me feel proud
Your beauty stood out from the crowd

Chorus
I loved you inside my head
Something I should have said
What you mean to me
What you’ll always be
The one I loved inside my head

Verse three
You were there for me from the start
It’s my fault we drifted apart
I was so blind I could not see
The many things you mean to me
It’s only now I realise
The love that shone within your eyes

Chorus
I loved you inside my head
Something I should have said
What you mean to me
What you’ll always be
The one I loved inside my head

Verse four
My life is nothing without you
To get you back what can I do
Baby I hope you hear my plea
Cause I want you back here with me
Listen to all the words I’ve said
I have loved you inside my head

Chorus
I loved you inside my head
Something I should have said
What you mean to me
What you’ll always be
The one I loved inside my head

Inside My Head

Don’t Wait
© 2020 Lyrics by: Trevor Johnson

Verse one
Tonight when you’re lying
in our bed
Will you think of all the things
you left unsaid
Time and time again I begged you
not to wait
Before it got too late

Chorus
Don’t wait
To show your love
Don’t wait
To hold me close
Don’t wait
No don’t wait
It’ll be too late

Verse two
All the nights I went to
bed alone
I always hoped that you’d be
not far behind
So we could make passionate
love again
Before it got too late

Chorus
Don’t wait
To show your love
Don’t wait
To hold me close
Don’t wait
No don’t wait
It’ll be too late

Middle eight
If you wait
It’ll be too late
If you wait
It’ll be too late


Verse three
The passion was still there
inside you
Sometimes in a hotel but
never at home
I asked you many times to
tell me why
Before it got too late

Chorus
Don’t wait
To show your love
Don’t wait
To hold me close
Don’t wait
No don’t wait
It’ll be too late

Verse four
I had it in my mind to find
out why
I asked if it was something
I’d said or done
You said no but would not say
any more
Before it got too late

Chorus
Don’t wait
To show your love
Don’t wait
To hold me close
Don’t wait
No don’t wait
It’ll be too late

Outplay
Now I’m gone
And you’re all alone
You’re all alone
It’s too late
It’s too late
It’s too late

If you want to cry
© 2020 Lyrics by: Trevor Johnson


Verse one
She’s gone and that’s the end
I know it hurts a lot
What you need now is a friend
Wait ‘till you see what I’ve got

Chorus
I am here if you want to cry
You’re so sad I can see
But it’s OK for a man to cry
So don’t hold back with me
I am here if you want to cry
So don’t hold back with me
I am here if you want to cry
So don’t hold back with me

Verse two
There was talk about you
Said you had played away
Someone told her it was true
And that’s why she wouldn’t stay

Chorus
I am here if you want to cry
You’re so sad I can see
But it’s OK for a man to cry
So don’t hold back with me
I am here if you want to cry
So don’t hold back with me
I am here if you want to cry
So don’t hold back with me

Verse three
I was waiting in the wings
But I have no idea
Who could have told her those things
Just good luck that I am here

Chorus
I am here if you want to cry
You’re so sad I can see
But it’s OK for a man to cry
So don’t hold back with me
I am here if you want to cry
So don’t hold back with me
I am here if you want to cry
So don’t hold back with me
I am here if you want to cry
So don’t hold back with me
I am here if you want to cry
So don’t hold back with me

I Did Not Lie
© 2020 Lyrics by: Trevor Johnson

Verse one
I know you don’t believe me
You still think I lied
But I’m gonna give it one more try
So Baby listen what I say

Chorus
I wrote this song to convince you
That I did not lie
You bring love to my music
So don’t let it die
I did not lie

Verse two
Yes I met up with an old friend
It’s been a very very long time
She made the suggestion
I should have said goodbye

Chorus
I wrote this song to convince you
That I did not lie
You bring love to my music
So don’t let it die
I did not lie

Verse three
Someone saw us leave the bar
I pray it’s not too late
Nothing happened I swear to you
Even though it looks that way

Chorus
I wrote this song to convince you
That I did not lie
You bring love to my music
So don’t let it die
I did not lie

Outplay
Oh Baby don’t let it die
I did not lie
You bring the love to my music
I did not lie
