5, 4, Now!


Breathless

You’re playing with fire can’t you see what you’re doing to me
I’ve seen it all before now what does it mean to me
You feel it in your blood stealing underneath your skin
I’ve seen it in your love seen it underneath your sins
And when the fires are closing in I lose myself
Say..

Leave me breathless tear my heart out take my honey kill my time
Leave me breathless tear my heart out leave me just your everlasting life

Your praying for nothing can’t you see
Get all your tricks from me
Crying on the floor now what does it mean to me
You feel it in your blood it’s stealing underneath your skin
I’ve seen it in your blood seen it underneath your sins
When the fires are closing in just lose yourself
Say it...

Leave me breathless tear my heart out take my honey kill my time
Leave me breathless tear my heart out leave me everlasting life
Leave me breathless
Baby baby feel some emotion
Just do the right thing
Leave me breathless
Just leave me everlasting life

You got to time it right
‘Cause I’m playing with lives
So just get your timing right
‘Cause your playing with fire

And when the fires are closing in
When the fires are closing in I lose myself

Ah....a song about a vampire

Rains

Storm growing in a southern town
Rains coming gonna soon be falling down
Winds blowing can you hear that sound
Soon our defences gonna all be broken down
No-one listens no-one comes around
The captains in the sun and now the ship has run aground

Oh the rains when the rain came down
The pain when the rains came down

Tell your children everything you know
How you get nothing from the loving seeds you’ve sown
Hold them close and sleep in peace tonight
In the morning we could all be out of sight

Oh the rains when the rains came down
Oh the rains when the rains came down

Skies blacken as the rivers rise
We’ll keep on running as the eagle flies
Tears are flowing as the sirens drown
The music’s dying in this old town

Oh the rain when the rains came down
Oh the pain when the rains came down
When the rains came down
Came down

Dedicated to all the those who lost their lives, families, friends and hope during the awful events of Katrina in 2005 when the government of the USA decided that the people of New Orleans didn’t matter...... sadly even Ms Rice with her obvious ancestry never seemed to care too much. I, along with many others, truly hope the heart isn’t ripped out of New Orleans. The line ‘the music’s dying in this old town’ represents the people, the spirit, the culture and of course the wonderful music that was created [jazz, rock and roll rhythm and blues stem from here] by the legends of that place.....Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Domino and Buddy Bolden to name a few. The staggering musicianship and players/performers that came/come from here moved me from an early age.

God

Sinners seekers, sinners seekers........
sinners seekers follow me, a solution I will find,
for praise and thanks I'll set you free, you'll never need to compromise.
All this time I waited for you, all these things you want me to be.

don't get me wrong my child, I never meant to blow you mind,
tell me what it is you've done, open up your heart my son,
close your eyes I'll help you see, only here to grant you time,
I'm giving you my guarantee, cross my heart and hope to die.

This god is mine I'll give it to you,
this god is fine I'll share it with you,
this god.

I'll raise a glass to history, you'll say a prayer to god above,
I hope you all remember me, perfect light and perfect love.
All this time I waited for you, all these things you want me to be.

Don't get me wrong my child, I never meant to blow your mind,
tell me what it is you've done, broken vow or smoking gun?
Close your eyes I'll help you see, I'm only here to grant you time,
giving you my guarantee, cross my heart and hope to die.

This god is mine I'll give it to you, this god is fine I'll share it with you.
sinners seekers

don't get me wrong my child, I never meant to blow you mind,
tell me what it is you've done, open up your heart my son,
close your eyes I'll help you see, only here to grant you time,
I'm giving you my guarantee, cross my heart and hope to die.

Originally written about a dominatrix I knew, but then changed around for dedication to the Jim Jones School Of God - written before David Koresh hit the scene (Waco), but performed in the USA with The Stranglers around that time coincidentally. It didn't really work with the band, but there are a few versions which I recorded, and in it's current guise appears cut up as "Chasing Rainbows" on the "Faith?" CD.

Back In The Night

Back in the night I lay down by your fireside
Back in the night you shook me like a landslide
I nearly missed the early shift
Dreaming in the morning ‘bout the things we did

Back in the night
Beneath your love-light

I woke up on the floor I asked you for some breakfast
You shoved me out the door I nearly missed the late bus
I’ve got to smile I like your style
You kicked me out this morning but you know that I’ll be

Back in the night
Beneath you love-light

Days drag by so slow I feel just like I’m dyin’
Stop work whistle blow then I start reclining
Across your yard beneath the stars
I made it through another and here we are

Back in the night
Beneath your love-light

Written by Wilko Johnson – my little tribute!

I saw the Feelgoods at the Odeon in November 1975 and it was mental...amazing energy.....possibly the only direct link between R n B and Punk in my opinion.

Shine

Save me a little voice cries save me
I’m a little scared don’t phase me
It wouldn’t take much to break me
I hear a voice cry
Losing every kind of way I keep choosing
All the wrong escapes it feels like
Darkness every day got to wake up sun is on its way

Don’t cry honey it’ll be alright
It’ll break your day and take you through the night
It’s a bitter pill but it’ll taste so sweet
Get you off your back and put you on your feet

Shine your light on me
Shine your light on me

When you want to put all the wrongs in your life right or remove knives from a tortured back, as hard as it may seem, letting that anger and hurt just go is the only way to deal with it. Perhaps you’ve given so much and others have just taken, or even stolen and your natural instinct is revenge. I believe one should see a positive every day and try always to move on.
