Lyrics

01 FISH

 

Cold comfort greeting tired and well trod feet

Moths flicker life into an empty dim lit street

Well this is somebody's home town

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Looking round I have to wonder.

 

I can hardly breath there's a weight upon my chest

Feels like it's pushing me down

Sucking out my breath

Just too many faces around here

That I don't want to see

I've been looking for the heart of town

But the ring roads lead me round and round

 

Dreamers of Caribbean seas

Jumping in and out it's me

 

Like a fish out of the water

Like a kite without a breeze

 

Tell me did you see the golden pavements

Was I dreaming or did they gleam

Well whether the writings on the wall

Or just sitting on the fence

Get up, look around to me there's no defence.

 

Against celtic brothers in their streams

Hooked & sent to Coventry

 

Like a fish out of the water

Like a kite without a breeze

03 AND AS FOR MYSELF

 

In light of day faced with confusion

[ I question confusion]

Attempting to solve, better tell you how I feel

 

And as for myself, And as for myself,

All that I see is you

 

In light of day I promised myself

[ Broken a promise]

This should not happen the elation I feel

 

And as for myself, And as for myself,

All that I see is you

 

Something is here, the way that you look

[All I see is you]

Something is here, the way that you smile

[All I see is you]

Something is here

The way that you smile

I love you

07 CHERRY

 

Cafes bars and speeding cars

The flavour of the month

Cherry's acting bittersweet

A taste of things to come

Cherry aches for thrills and spills

So pie high in the sky

Kings and queens

Those night world dreams

Please share with me tonight

 

Oh Cherry Cherry feed me

Oh Cherry Cherry never go

Oh Cherry Cherry feed me

Oh Cherry Cherry say you'll never go

 

Like blossom falls from the tree

Cherry sets me free

06 UNITY SONG

 

Some fighters when bruised

Retire choose to lose

Some bruisers confused

Lean on their brothers

That's a desperation move

 

We can't change the time or the stars friends

We can't change the time or the stars

 

Communication some of that give and take

A sound anthem worth debate

 

We can't change the time or the stars friends

We can't change the time or the stars

 

You want to tell me about it

How should we answer - Bittersweet

How should we answer - Box on nimble feet

How should we answer - With a Unity Song

How should we answer - With a Unity Song

09 I KISSED THE SPIKEY FRIDGE

 

I can't forget you I know I never will

It's not that often I make love with a porcupine

 

On the floor you scratched and clawed

If I'm a safe you cracked my door

 

I kissed the spikey fridge

That's the way she is

 

You spread a frost to starch my fears

I'll wipe away your crocodile tears

 

I kissed the spikey fridge

That's the way she is

 

I dream of you

You know you've pricked my for a hundred years

Shivers on my spine

Love sends a loving sign

That I want you

That I need you

Hold me harder

Suck my love in

 

I kissed the spikey fridge

That's the way she is

Do the la la la

02 LOVE AND PRIDE

 

That's what my heart yearns for now

Love & Pride

 

Start your journey, early or maybe later

[Get your boots on]

Look for rainbows, it's cloudy

Take your hairdryer blow them all away

 

In you I find a story I want to keep hearing

In you I see all colours not just black or white

In you I find a reason and hope for all dreamers

You are my fill your my supply of

Love and Pride

 

That's what my heart yearns for now

Love & Pride

 

Knowing, sensing, seeing, eating sleeping

[That's just being]

Touching testing loving

Wanting and taking more love and more pride

 

In you I find a story I want to keep hearing

In you I see all colours not just black or white

In you I find a reason and hope for all dreamers

You are my fill your my supply of

Love and Pride

 

I'm taking it round the world

04 TROUBLE

 

I'm stood in a darken bus station

Avoiding the ripped seats

Customised frustrations

Its question and answer time

It's make love on the street

Well that's the way it goes

[that's the way it goes]

Smack the world

[Punch it on the nose]

Your problems never get solved

By thinking with your crutch

 

I find that my trouble

Is it's impossible when its insufferable

To take anymore

 

Laugh at bad jokes with the crew

I'm trapped in an unwanted conversation

Love can make fools out of men

Even men out of fools

Stirred by a dagger in the back

Someone's got over active mouth attack

Jump the bus two stops early

And kick in some new car doors

 

I find that my trouble

Is it's impossible when its insufferable

To take no more

05 WONT YOU HOLD MY HAND NOW

 

These are heavy times

So won't you show your hand

I don't mean kiss and tell

I'm such a jealous man

 

I throw a flush

I reveal my ace

The hearts my trump

I don't need no picture face

I'm laying my cards out on the table place

Won't you take my hand

 

Won't you take my hand

These are heavy times

 

These are heavy times

All clamps and parking fines

Too much north too much south

Too much of the knaves verses the spades

 

Won't you take my hand

These are heavy times

 

From a circus ring to a band of gold

Sometimes there's safety nets

Sometimes but there's no golden rule

08 SOUL ON MY BOOTS

 

Smash me all to pieces kick a dream when it's down

[Oh I want a reason]

I said pull yourself together child lift your chin off the ground

 

If I want a reason

[Any will do]

If I need a reason

[Any will do]

To stand up to you

 

I wont hide myself from you

I wear my soul on my boots

 

Too much shoe leather lost to many slam doors gained

I can take all of your knocks

I might be numbed but not maimed

And I'm wise to your game

 

If I want a reason

[Any will do]

If I need a reason

[Any will do]

To stand up to you
