Look me straight in the face
My heart was too late for the race
Looking for an answer

My eyes couldn’t have chose my gaze
And left behind those bygone days
Looking for an answer

It wasn’t a game couldn’t you tell .?
You knew me and I knew you well
Looking for an answer

The time did come and I must go
To disappear and leave you so
Looking for an answer

Remember how we never felt the same
I loved you and you healed my pains
We were looking for an answer

I’m still hurting to this very day
With a burning desire to get away
I’m still looking, looking for an answer.

Looking for an answer

Watching you in black and white
In all those old pictures
Electricity sizzled on the screen
A one man masterclass in manners.

He broke down barriers, a true pioneer
He broke down barriers, a true pioneer

He overcame adversity against all odds
He pushed boundaries amongst his peers
Now he’s gone , left behind a wife
A legion of fans and six daughters.

An inspiration for a future generation
Articulate, polite and well spoken
There will never be another you
A huge hole Is left, sad but true.

He broke down barriers, a true pioneer
He broke down barriers, a true pioneer.

Barriers

The ticking of the clock on the wall
Reminds me of my own heart
It drowns out the silence and the sentence
The three hands , the sum of the part

Time doesn’t run out, it goes on forever
Time doesn’t run out, it goes on forever

24 little hours to get things done
We never know how much we have left
Got to treasure every single moment
I should really take my own advice

Like the air I breathe
You’re with me all the time
You will never leave me
Even after I’m long gone

Time doesn’t run out, it goes on forever
Time doesn’t run out, it goes on forever.

Dear friend, though you’re far away
You remain near and dear
Hearing your voice again
Fills me with positivity

Friends come and go
But only true friends stay
Friends come and go
But only true friends stay .

From that first meeting in the hut
We got along almost straight away
Nothing in common or so it seemed
Eight year age gap, different lives

We’ve been through the mill
Together through thick and thin
We have plenty more years to go
One day I will repay you back
I owe you so much .

Friends come and go
But only true friends stay
Friends come and go
But only true friends stay.

Friends

You kept me in line
In the good old days
Can’t concentrate means
I start to fade

I leave the flat saying
“ I am real”
I am the pressure
Like it’s all on me
Don’t mention her name
It was not about love
I’m fairly sure , I’m fairly sure

You were not the one x 4

You said you loved me
But did you though ?
I hate rejection
But I got it from you

Did you ever see that I don’t know
I got my memories in my mind
Send me a text and write
“I really love you “
I won’t believe, I won’t believe.
My eyes x 4

I kept it a secret but
It wasn’t my call
My lust went berserk
But I can’t blame you all
My motivation saying
“Take,take,take.”
Turn up the volume
And mix with sight
It quickly dawned on me
To catch those eyes
It’s hard to think
It’s hard to think.

My eyes

Those long balmy summer nights
The smell of strawberries in the air
The sound of laughter on the streets
The buzzing feeling of the fair

Sitting round the bonfire at midnight
Drunk, putting the world to rights
The smell of meat on the metal grill
Wafting across the summer chill

Summer will soon be here
Summer time , warm and clear.

Standing with friends on the lawn
Bottle in hand, having a laugh
All through the night until dawn
Music from the garage
Dancing the night away
Just been paid, got a good wage.

Foam on the patio
Be careful not to slip over
Ten in the hot tub in one go
Soaked up by the grass
Was the soapy overflow.

Summer will soon be here
Summer time warm and clear .

Down on my luck
But I turned it around
I walk the streets but there’s
Safety in numbers
Down on my luck
Or so I thought

I walk past a two car crash
Which then turned into a war
Things will never be the same
I told some lies and so did you

Came to my senses one cold dark day
In my mind I was free to roam
Playing hide and seek
But not able to run

Oh look, another machine
If I went outside
If I could look the other way
You wouldn’t believe what people do

Down on my luck
These days it’s all
Sell, sell, sell
From the dusk till the morning
Down on my luck
With no local friends
I am not a lover
I am not romantic
I am here to drive you
A different world
But the times never change.

Down on my luck

Sunday goes so slow, I just never know
What will happen here and now
I go for days without seeing a soul
Without a chat, I’m looking for something
Outside this flat.

I lost my way for a while
Couldn’t find a safe way out
Hey friend, how you been ?
I got so lonely waiting up here
Thought you had forgotten me
I’m gonna keep my head up
Living through the sad times
Trying to stay afloat
Living for the mad times
Gonna keep my eyes open
Living through the sad times
Spending my time
Living through the sad times

You broke my heart about it
The past I can’t change
I’m able to make sense
My memories remain
I had this thing about you
I’m too old to change
Don’t you know I loved you baby
All the same.

There’s nobody there
Nothing came
There’s nobody there
Nothing came

Sad times
