Blue room in Archway

Feels so much colder, now youíre away
Blue room in Archway
Searchin all the places you could be
And I can feel your ghost over me
Four walls ultra marine
Lock myself away
Blue room in Archway
Searchin all the places you could be
And I can feel your ghost over me
And itís hard to define my reasons
For hiding away
Cursing the day when I leave
Canít you read the sign on my window
Why donít you leave me alone
Blue room in Archway

The Old Newsstand at Hamilton Square

I was dreaming about Hamilton Square and the
newsstand by the station
Where we bought the papers every single day
I was thinking about the way we treat each other
And the way things never stay the same
Remembering all these people, all these places
A cats gotta learn some day
Sad songs are easier to play, Iím afraid
We were laughing about that time in
New Brighton one summer
When you got there and Iíd already been
And you couldínt believe that I had forgotten that it happened
Even forget so it seems
Remebering all these people, all these places
A cats gotta learn some day
Sad songs are easier to play, Iím afraid
We were talking about the times weíve been together
And the future seemed so very far away
We were coming to terms with the fact that weíre
not young anymore
But weíre grateful for the times weíve had
Remembering all these people, all these places
A cats gotta learn some day
sad songs are easier to play, Iím afraid
All these people, all these places
A cats gotta learn some day
sad songs are easier to play, Iím afraid

Free Huey

Drag the shades across the window
Donít answer any knock at the door
Keep your hand on the weapon beside you
Keep your eyes out for the law
Donít you know and you gotta be all you can be
Weíre told to run towards the future
While theyíre standing on our feet
And be content with the scraps that they throw us
After promising a feast
If you didnít have a gun then I wouldnít need a gun

Monuments for a dead century

And now the dust has settled Iím still left with me
Still trying to think of what it is Iíd like to be
Always looking for the easy exit out
Never stopping to wonder why
Colours faded by the raping of the land
Colours diluted by the raping of woman
We celebrate the life and history of man
How we suffer for all weíve achieved
Iíve never met you Philip Morris but I know
You treat me like I was the son you never killed
I am your servant and yes you have raised me well
Will you put flowers on my grave
M.I.L.L.E.N.I.U.M.-I want to spend it with you
Trying to make some sense of this I canít work it out 
(Nobody lives here anymore)
A trophy for our new captain whoíll blame someone else
(We should have spent the days on so much more) 
Theyíre building a monument a for a dead century

Heavenís at the bottom of this glass

Reasons for believing in anything 
Are few and far between these days
And I am just a boy who canít say no
Things are so much clearer in a haze
And you donít know, so why not give it a chance
Heavenís at the bottom of this glass
Lessons are for learning then throwing away
Experience has taught me nothing
Think Iíll take a chance and miss you today
You can choose real life if you want
And you donít know, so why not give it a chance
Heavenís at the bottom of this glass
Blinded by the sunshine give me neon light
When Iím far away this is my home
A small one on the side to aid my flight
Then I can feel my wings begin to grow
And you donít know, so why donít give it a chance
Heavenís at the bottom of this glass

Kingsize

The night is filled with stars that last a lifetime long
They all belong to me
I would like to see you can come home soon
Iíve kept it blue for you
How would you like to share
How would you like to share it all with me
How would you like to share
How would you like to share it all with me
All I have is not all that I need to be
I need to see this through
Living under people who donít speak for me
Donít care for me or you
How would you like to share
How would you like to share it all with me
How would you like to share
How would you like to share it all with me
Loneliness makes a man possesed 
It drives him back
It drives him back to other times
When life was not so very kind
So long ago, in another world
When no-one knew the things Iíd seen
I donít think I could do it all again
Words confuse as Governments refuse
To give us but a small sign
That each of us is not alone
In times of need nothing is received
Because politics is power
And power is a daily need
Iím coming up for air
How would you like to share
How would you like to share it all with me
How would you like to share
How would you like to share it all with me

High as monkeys

Try to put yourself in my place
Itís written all over my face
Iím closer to God
Iíve shed my dirty old skin
Grown a brand new feeling
Iím closer to God
Thinking fast and feeling free
And thereís no-one who can touch me
Higher than the Universe itself
Thanks I donít need no help
I donít have to see my picture
Or my name in a music paper
Now Iím close to God
I donít have trouble sleepingI donít have to go to meetings
When Iím close to God
Thinking fast and feeling free
And thereís no one who can touch me
Higher than the Universe itself
Thanks I donít need no help
Itís a secret no one keeps it
Reveals the places others try to hide
It tips the balance from the violence
That lies within the bottles on the side
Now weíre high as monkeys
Now weíve come so far
You and I are simple friends no more
Now weíre high as monkeys
Opened a few doors
Let the sunshine crash into our souls
Try to put yourself in my place
Itís written all over my face
Iím closer to God
Iíve shed my dirty old skin
Grown a brand new feeling
Iím closer to God
Thinking fast and feeling free
And thereís no-one who can touch me
Higher than the Universe itself
Itís a secret no one keeps it
Reveals the places others try to hide
It tips the balance from the violence
That lies within the bottles on the side
Now weíre high as monkeys
Now weíve come so far
You and I are simple friends no more
Now weíre high as monkeys
Opened a few doors
Let the sunshine crash into our souls

Eurostar

Itís only been a week or two
And me I have done nothing
Though thereís so much to do
Just lie here, donít go to town
It doesnít really matter
Nothing ever gets me down
Youíve been away too long
Itís lonely when you are gone
Youíve been away too long
At times I feel so alone
Itís easy to let it go
Iíve lost so many hours
Doing what I do not know
This blue room, a time machine
It doesnít really matter
Iíve got everything I need
Youíve been away too long
At times I feel so alone
Youíve been away too long
Itís so lonely when you are gone
Iíve been away too long
At times I feel so alone

Adieu Clo-Clo

Monkeys dressed in uniforms
Thinking they own the place
Threatening to break my face
Cryiní cos they wonít let me in
You canít win with these guys
I wanted just to see you, wanted just to see you
Adieu Clo-Clo
Goodbye to you my brother
Adieu Clo-Clo
Goodbye to you my brother until the end
Swimming in electricity
Stand back now could you please
Come on thereís nothing to see
Watching the black and white flickering
Foreign to these ears
Something always breaks you, something always breaks you
Adieu Clo-Clo
Goodbye to you my brother
Adieu Clo-Clo
Goodbye to you my brother until the end

Jimmy Webb is God

Just a simple song but God I love it
Embedded in me, so bittersweet
Iím addicted, Iím a melancholic
Sing it again, Iíll be your friend forever
Wipe away this tear from my eye
Wash away this sadness from my heart
Iím not fit to even tune your guitar
Oh Jimmy, you make me happy
Iím twenty eight but I feel much younger
To this Iíll attest, Iím a beautiful mess
Can this happiness last much longer
I think that I can, I know I am yours forever
forever
Wipe away this tear from my eye
Wash away this sadness from my heart
Iím not fit to even tune your guitar

She is everywhere

She hears what Iím thinking, and she also knows
What Iím going to say before I do
Slip back in my old ways whe sheís not around
Drinking tim the sun rises anew
We are one, my dear, Iíd like to say to you
Keep my wings around you all the time
I am not the same boy that I once was
Nowadays Iím so hard to find
You make me happy, thereís nothing else I can be
You make me feel, thereís only you and me
You made me love you, with everything you are
I need you

Comb your hair

Weíve both been sitting here so long
Turn it off thereís nothing on
The television will not be revolutionised
So come on baby, comb your hair
And hope the streets will lead us where
Everybody will know just what we both need
And we may never be this young again
Half my life has been misspent
Remember how I used to be and my energy
And we may never feel this way again
Lets not waste the time we have left
Get out while we can and clear our dusty heads
Holy man, yes, thanks youíre kind
But I havenít got the time
To listen to how bad your god says I have been
For I have been what youíve not been
And I have seen what youíve not seen
Come back later when youíre lived a little while
And we may never be this young again
Half my life has been misspent
Remember how I used to be and my energy
And we may never feel this way again
Lets not waste the time we have left
Get out while we can and clear our dusty heads

Song from the Blue Room

Iíve tried so damn hard to convince her
But my pleaís in vain
I still feel the same as I did
Could you call her, maybe tell her
It Might sound right from you
I donít know what else to do
Would you try?
Now weíre older, things are stranger
Then theyíve ever been
Now Iím scared of death
For the first time
All my friends say I look better
But my health is gone
Smoking far too much
All the time
Take your future in your own hands
Donít rush, take your time
Look around and find
Your friends
Come together, love each other
Spit on those who say
This is not the way
Let them die
And whgat goes up must come down
So I canít talk right now
And maybe itís easy to believe
That once once in your life, once your life
Youíll find the love that you have always had
Realise that before you knew nothing at all

The future is now

Itís good to belong
The dead manís clothes that you wear like a medal of honour
Why bother?
These clothes do not fit me
I was born for today and the day after
Year after year
All your classicisms and history donít impress me
Thereís no time like the present
Place the displace, enchant the disenchanted
Use your power
Millenium fever
Just another way of bringing us together
Never never
All your classicisms and history donít impress me
Iíve got a lot to do
I still the same pull 
(The future is now)
So come out wherever you are
Hiding in the decades, people
Youíre not stupid, you must know the future is now
A dome is no home
A monument will not keep us warm in winter
Lose your fear
All your classicsms and history donít impress me
Iíve got a lot to do
I still the same pull 
(The future is now)
So com eout wherever you are
Hiding in the decades, people
Youíre not stupid, you must know the future is now
All your classicisms and history donít impress me
The future is here, so glad you made it here
