about

Album recorded 2016 and is a mixture of old songs written in the last 20 years and songs written in the studio from jamming. I've used a few phone app instruments but basically still the drum, bass and guitar lineup.

Track Name: Ever
Ever

Cmaj 150bpm

Verse E F
Chorus C Am

Verse 1
Never never never never, ever.
People will let you down into their burden.
You have to let go float to the surface.

Verse2
Never never never never, ever.
Good advice is hard to find.
Truth leaves you undefined.
Track Name: Everything you do, everthing you say
Everything you do, everything you say - Cmaj 130bpm

DE EDC piano
BAG GF guitar

V1
I’ve seen some crazy things you would never want to see.
I heard some whisperings right in front of me.
Any day they could come for you in their big white van.
Take you right on the street in an executed plan.

Chorus
Everything you do
everything you say.
Everything you do
everything you say.

V2
They will have you in a room to change your point of view.
By the time they finalise one and one won’t equall two.
Facts are negative, facts are pessimistic.
Ignore the experts and the scientific.


Chorus x2
Track Name: Transit of Venus
Transit of Venus - G major 160bpm

Mellotron verse Bm D Em G
Piano verse Bm Em

Back in 1769, Captain Cook in Tahiti.
Observed an atmosphere, transit of venus.

That was just a cover for another plan,
to travel south and discover land.
That he could claim for his king,
we are the result of this.
Track Name: Your destiny
Your destiny

Cm/Eb

Capo on 3rd
C Em G/Am Em Dm F

D#/Eb Gm A#/Bb
Cm Gm Fm G#/Ab

I’ve been reading horoscopes and visiting mystics.
I’ve been trying to find what is the plan.
I’ve been riding on a rollercoaster but you,
have to get down before you get up again.

This much is true,
what you have to do,
is get in touch with
your destiny.

There is nothing new if you study your history.
Just something that happened long ago.
May be chaos or it could be fate.
You’ll never know if you hide behind your front gate.

Chorus
Track Name: Stand up for it all
Stand up for it all
Em 110 bpm

C B G F#
B F#


V1
For a long time
I never stood up for anyone.
For a long time
I never stood up for anything.

Chorus
Stand up or you fall
stand up heed the call
stand up for it all
stand up for it all.

V2
For a long time
I treated life as a game.
For a long time
looking for some one else to blame.

Chorus

V3
From now on
you are your hobby.
From now on
never say sorry.

Chorus
Track Name: Get any better

verse 1
I Put on a smile when we go out
back of my mind there is some doubt.
Ask me how that makes me feel
have to know if this is real.

chorus
Is this as good as it gets does it get any better.
Is this as good as it gets does it get any better.

verse 2
I convince myself that you will leave
waiting for that sweet relief.
I know I am not the only one
Yes I read it all on your phone.

Chorus x 2

Inst. verse

Chorus x2
Track Name: Body sway
Body Sway

Verse 1 C Am F G
If I decided to think about it, what am I doing here.
In the front bar of the hotel, in the middle of nowhere.
Watching a band going through the motions,
in front of a small but loyal following.
That memory will have a meaning,
upon their reflection.

Chorus Dm F - C G
Is it self doubt or am I dreaming,
but I don’t feel that I fit in.
To any of these scenes and all these people,
walking through life past my table.

Verse 2
I’m just sitting thinking that I’m lucky,
to be going.
I look around me familiarity,
and it is showing.
On the faces of the audience,
absorbing.
I go to make my exit,
feel my body sway.

Chorus
Track Name: Remember when we were so young
Always thought you were the one, remember when we were so young, before it all came undone, remember when we were so young.
