FOOTSCRAY PARK LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Take a walk to Footscray Park, Stay out til the sky is dark. Tell your friends you're getting old, Tell your friends if truth be told. What do you do with the mess in your mind? You pack up all the pain And pretend that you're fine When you're broken up inside, All broken up inside. Wander round the house all day, Find a bar that's open late. What do you do with the mess in your mind? You pack up all the pain And pretend that you're fine When you're broken up inside, All broken up inside. Go outside and face the world, Harden up and hide the hurt. What do you do with the mess in your mind? You pack up all the pain And pretend that you're fine When you're broken up inside, All broken up inside. Take a walk to Footscray Park, Stay out til the sky is dark.

MAPS LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Maps and all the cities of the world Make me feel so small, I know I'll never live to see 'em all. Faith in all the colours that we see Makes the sky turn blue, I know when I look up I'll find you. Who would have thought A star could break your heart? Haven't you heard That when we're gone the world Just keeps on breathing? Distant love and all of the above Sometimes makes me blue, I know when I look up I'll find you. Now you're gone To blue skies.

BRUISES LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Bruises They appear as if from nowhere And you wake up wondering How they got there. Bruises Bleeding blue and purple memories, All the hurts and aches And the soft heart breaks Reminds me every day, Yeah I know, let 'em go Don't let them have their way. Yeah I know, let 'em go Just let those bruises fade. Bruises I grew up and now they're everywhere And the years went by But the pain remains there. Someday We will stare down all our enemies, That we keep itching Underneath our skin But 'til then That's where they'll stay.

DON'T WANNA GROW UP ANYMORE LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 When I was young Everything came so easy, Nothing much to do, No point to prove. Where did that sun kissed kid go? Now you know I just don't wann grow up anymore. I know what you'll try and tell me, "Seize the day my friend Until the end!" It's true, I can't complain but Still you know I just don't wanna grow up anymore You know I just don't wanna grow up anymore I'm told from the dust of stars we Came into this world And shall return. It's foolish to try and fight it. Still you know I just don't wanna grow up anymore. You know I just don't wanna grow up anymore. Come back, Don't crack, Come down and Lie with me in the summer sun.

SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Sitting in the waiting room, Doctor will be with you soon, Kill some time and watch the tube. It's clearly in the air We're both a little scared, And I don't have the words to make it right I'm staring at the screen She's reading magazines, And I don't have the words to make it right So I throw a little lie. Sitting in the waiting room Doctor says to come on through. Now what can I do for you? And first there is a pause Before she starts to talk And I don't have the words to make it right. And even though I'm here I'm helplessness and fear, And I don't have the words to make it right. Letting unknown forces take control Let the unknown forces take control... Walking out the waiting room My eyes are white, the skies still blue Now there's other stuff to do. It's when she takes my hand I start to understand, I don't need the words to make it right. When facing the unknown No one wants to be alone, And it's not words we need to make it right. And further as we walk And we begin to talk, I don't need the words to make it right. And soon we're in my car, The lights are rushing past And it's not the words we need to make it right As we drive in to the night.

GET IT TOGETHER LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 That old had ain't what I need, It's a rusty lock and key, Now a distant memory Get it together. As a kid, man I was scard Of the voices in my head, Gonna put those fears to bed Now and forever. Cos I don't want to live As if I'm chasing my tail around Only to be told, "You just got old" And I don't want to die Taking my place in a checkout line, That's never going to be Enough for me. It got to get it together. All the kids queue round the bend And they strut, trying to pretend They're in Vampire Weekend, Get it together.

TO LET YOU DOWN LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Sometimes, it's a quiet night That stirs my troubled mind And I wonder what I'd do If ever I lost you. Walking through an empty world A shadow by my side Well I'd go on I suppose Wearing my old closthes. You're the only one Who means everything to me And I'd hate to let you down. I'd really hate to let you down. Always thought that I was full of Really big ideas, I might have fooled everyone else I was fooling myself. When your hope is gone Or it hurts too much to carry on, That's when I'd hate to let you down. I'd really hate to let you down. And I know it's true As great empires fall That me and you, We're different to them all! Yeah, I know it's true Like writing on the wall. You could do less foolish things than Give your heart away And if I ever let it break, That would be my worst mistake. When the lights go out We don't have to be alone. 'Cos I'd hate to let you down. I'd really hate to let you down.

IN ANOTHER TIME LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Going to make my way through the crowd and Into your party. I can handle this like the adult I'm supposed to be When the moment comes and we make eye contact I'll just pretend We're old friends. Nothing ever happened anyway. Can't you see you're the last thing I need right now Interrupting my world? Finally just when I think I'm cured Your lingering ghost returns. And in another time we might have been something But now I'm tired of draggin the memory of you around Please don't hate me when You're confronted by my cold shoulder. We just can't move past awkward conversation. Don't get me wrong, I've moved on Honest, I don't ache for you that much. Can't you see you're the last thing I need right now Interrupting my world? Finally just when I think I'm cured Your lingering ghost returns. In another time maybe we just might have been something But now I'm tired of dragging the memory of you around.

GO LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Love. When it's in your veins It infects your brain Til your dying days And I couldn't wait for the time When I found a heart like mine. We were lost, we were soft We were unripe on the vine But there's no way that I could wait for tomorrow, C'mon I'm ready to go! Break All your thick skin rules. They're just a big excuse, They will become your noose Til you cut them loose. When you're down and the next one comes around Make it big, make it brash, Make it bigger than the last Cos there's no way the world can wait for tomorrow, C'mon get ready to go! Lovin' is the best And it's good to get it off your chest. You've got to wonder why We all laugh about it, shout about it Til it makes us cry. And right now is the time I got yours and you got mind. We are lost, we are soft We're just hangin' from the vine But there's now way the world can wait for tomorrow, No there's no way that I can wait for tomorrow, C'mon I'm ready to go!

NOTHING'S GONNA SAVE US FROM OURSELVES LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Losing ground In a battle of age, Broken bones Gently wither away. Shadows from a slow descending moon Cast themselves across an empty room. Nothing now, The silence we shared Suffocates and floats in the air. Autumn leaves have fallen from the trees Scattered like the dust of memories. Nothing's gonna save us from ourselves Running dry like water in the well. You can keep your heaven and your hell Cos nothing's gonna save us from ourselves. Heavy night Blacker than tar, Lying back Looking up at the stars. I've been holding on for so long To something love had led my heart to find. Laid to rest upon a night stand, Our memories are all we leave behind.

WHAT ELSE IS THERE? LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 All we know is nothing anyway. All that we can do is give our love away. Making ourselves vulnerable, It's crazy! Makes no sense to chance our hearts so easily But what else is there? What else is there? All we own is nothing anyway. All we've got is all we'll leave behind some day. Fall in love and drive ourselves insane. Makes no sense to do it but we're all the same, Cos what else is there? What else is there?

WONDERFUL YOU LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 When I can be prone to indulging in sadness You are the light through a dark sky in June And that's how I know I can always find sunshine With my wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful You. Now who would have thought that the smallest of gestures Could make the whole world seem alive and brand new? The curl of a lip and I'm hopelessly falling For my wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful You. And I know there'll be Times when we won't see things eye to eye But that doesn't mean I'll ever stop tryin'. In truth sometimes life can feel more like a series Of mundane events we're all forced to live through, But I love even the most ordinary moments With my wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful You. And I know there'll be Times when we won't see things eye to eye But that doesn't mean I'll ever stop tryin'. And I know that long After everyone's gone You'll be there still, Listening to me Singing your song. So in to the great unknown future We walk on. I can't promise I'll always know what to do, But I'll be here for ya Come hell or high water. You're my wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful You.

Don't Wanna Grow Up Anymore LYRICS

ALBUM: THE DOUBLE LIFE EP, 2012 When I was young Everything came so easy, Nothing much to do, No point to prove. Where did that sun kissed kid go? Now you know I just don't wanna grow up anymore. I know what you'll try and tell me, "Seize the day my friend Until the end!" It's true, I can't complain but Still you know I just don't wanna grow up anymore You know I just don't wanna grow up anymore I'm told from the dust of stars we Came in to this world And shall return. It's foolish to try and fight it. Still you know I just don't wanna grow up anymore. You know I just don't wanna grow up anymore. Come back, Don't crack, Come down and Lie with me in the summer sun.

Sitting in the Waiting Room LYRICS

ALBUM: THE DOUBLE LIFE EP, 2012 Sitting in the waiting room, Doctor will be with you soon, Kill some time and watch the tube, It's clearly in the air We're both a little scared, And I don't have the words to make it right I'm staring at the screen She's reading magazines, And I don't ahve the words to make it right So I throw a little lie. Sitting in the waiting room Doctor says to come on through, Now what can I do for you? And first there is a pause Before she starts to talk And I don't have the words to make it right. And even though I'm here I'm helplessness and fear, And I don't have the words to make it right. Letting unknown forces take control... Let the unknown forces take control... Walking out the waiting room My eyes are white, the skies still blue Now there's other stuff to do. It's when she takes my hand I start to understand, I don't need the words to make it right. When facing the unknown, No one wants to be alone, And it's not words we need to make it right.

Antibiotics LYRICS

ALBUM: THE DOUBLE LIFE EP, 2012 Give me antibiotics I'm so sick of myself. I don't like how this is feeling A quick fix might just help. Give me antibiotics Any colour will do, A little medication to Help the summer break through. Cos I'm just wasting my own spare time Dreaming of pressing some kind of rewind. Help me cos I can't forget! Give me medicine nightly, A little relief from the day, A rainbow of prescriptions To help me get on my way. Memories like allergies. Help me cos I can't forget! Help me cos I can't forget!

Wrecking Ball LYRICS

ALBUM: THE DOUBLE LIFE EP, 2012 At first it was funny Laying waste to all of our time But things started changing, The allure was losing its shine. I couldn't help feeling Like I'd lost a part of myself. With all your outlaw charm You twist my rubber arm. You are a wrecking ball, You'll be the end of us all. You are a wrecking ball, You'll be the end of everything. You are a wrecking ball. I guess I could blame you But I know I'm easily led. It's not like you ever Held a gun up to my head And that is the worst part of it all. You are a wrecking ball, You'll be the end of us all. You are a wrecking ball, You'll be the end of everything. You are a wrecking ball, You are the rise and the fall, You are a wrecking ball. And I know, we've been at this for ages And I know, we're familiar strangers. Yeah I know But what can I do?

SOMEONE SO MUCH LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 Goodnight Bull Creek You were the world to me Now you’re just a well worn post code Full of memories I drove down your road Searching for, I don’t know I was hoping I might find Something I left long behind I stayed up all night thinking of Ways to tell you That my whole life I’ve been here Waiting for you Now my heart is blind And I’m losing my mind When you love someone so much It hurts Stuck in two minds Under a starless sky With the pitter patter footsteps Of the passer’s by While I chose the road The road less travelled by And sometimes it’s dark and lonely Living with all your if only’s But the hardest part of it all Aint the pictures hung in the hall But the silence greeting the night Turning out my broken light I stayed up all night thinking of Ways to tell you That my whole life I’ve been here Waiting for you Now my heart is blind And I’m losing my mind When you love someone so much It hurts

PASHA BULKER LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 I took my worries to the waters edge To drown them peacefully Saw my reflection O’er the horizon A stranded ship like me Where did I go wrong? Oh where did I go wrong? To be like the sun Sinking in to the sea The waves spat vitriol against the cliffs As if to beckon me If I keep walking it’s all over I stare out to the sea Where did I go wrong? Oh where did I go wrong? To be like the sun Sinking in to the sea Oh to be like the sun Sinking in to the sea Where did I go wrong? Oh where did I go wrong?

HAND ME DOWNS LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 I got nothing’ darlin All I’ve got are broken wings A little love means everything We’ve got nothing’ baby If we don’t take it for ourselves And I need you more than ever now And still somehow We get around in hand me downs We get around in hand me downs Cos nothing in the world comes easy for us Even when it looks that way And I’m still getting’ round in the same stuff I wore around in ‘98 So when you gonna get a real job son And buy a little real estate? If that means living someone elses life I guess we’re gonna have to wait Another day We get around in hand me downs We get around in hand me downs Cos nothing in the world comes easy for us Even when it looks that way And I’m still getting’ round in the same stuff I wore around in ‘98 So when you gonna get a real job son And buy a little real estate? If that means living someone elses life I guess we’re gonna have to wait Another day We get around in hand me downs We get around in hand me downs I got nothing’ darlin’ All I’ve got are broken wings And I need you more than ever now

YOUR LOVE LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 It’s true I thought I was fine Being alone with all of my time I thought for all I had I could do just as I pleased No one was keeping me on a leash But if I never came home It’s so hard finding new things to do When no one looks for you Now I know I need your love Now I know I need your love Cos without it I fear my hope would turn to dust I used to walk home at night Content to feel a little alright Thinking for all I had That a half of me wasn’t all that half bad But I was wrong All along Something was missing I know exactly where that something is It lingers in your kiss Now I know I need your love Now I know I need your love Cos without it my happiness is just a bluff Now I know I need your love Now I know I need your love Now I know…

WINTERSONG LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 Summer’s been and gone Only winter’s from now on ‘Cos I’m tired of the ever changing seasons Lovers in the sun Play in water when it runs But they never chase a river to the sea Love comes and it goes I suppose Where the winter wind blows Hearts heavy load Left bleeding by the road Thumbing all the passing cars Love comes and it goes I suppose Where the winter wind blows Summers been and gone Only winter’s from now on ‘Cos I’m tired of the ever changing seasons Love comes and it goes I suppose Where the winter wind blows And love it comes and goes I suppose Where the winter wind blows

WE'RE A MESS LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 Now we’re in trouble - the war without a reason Flags lay in tatters - the end of huntin’ season Outside the country is drying up and bleeding I’m in my bedroom trying to fight the noise in my head Cos I don’t wanna watch all that I love die I don’t wanna burn through a hole in the sky Hey kids, roll up for the new coming attraction Killing each other will drive us to distraction Fear casts a spell like an allergic reaction I’m in my lounge room trying to make some sense of it all Cos I don’t wanna watch all that I love die I don’t wanna burn through a hole in the sky To feel a little more than just helplessness Cos now we can agree on one thing We’re a mess It’s an S.O.S Cos I don’t wanna watch all that I love die I don’t wanna burn through a hole in the sky Or wake up every day feeling this afraid Of fessin’ up to every mistake that we made I just wanna know what we’re living for At least enough to die with my foot in the door To feel a little more than just emptyness Cos now we can agree on one thing We’re a mess It’s an S.O.S

NUTHIN'S GONNA TEAR ME AWAY FROM YOU LYRICS

ALBUM: GOODNIGHT, Bull Creek!, 2009 Out this window the worlds ten thousand feet away I know your down, down there somewhere feeling the same But that doesn’t have to mean The best of us has been We made it once We’ll make it once again It’s true that time can be as cruel as she’s been kind You must think you’re the furthest thing from my mind But that couldn’t be more wrong I get what’s going on We made it once We’ll make it once again Nuthin’s gonna tear me away from you While every winter’s still worth getting through Living in a world that don’t know what to do with no Ordinary love Nuthin’s gonna tempt me to greener grass Or make me disappear through the looking glass Lost in a place where nothing lasts But that’s not you and me But that doesn’t have to mean The best of us has been We made it once We’ll make it twice I jump My car We roll the dice Now whose to say that we couldn’t start again? Nuthin’s gonna tear me away from you While every winter’s still worth getting through Living in a world that don’t know what to do with no Ordinary love Nuthin’s gonna tempt me to greener grass Or make me disappear through the looking glass Lost in a place where nothing lasts But that’s not you and me Nuthin’s gonna tear me away from you Nuthin’s gonna tear me away from you Nuthin’s gonna tear me away from you

POWER OF SPEECH LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 I don’t want to chat with you on the telephone I know what will happen My jaw will slacken ‘til I’m saved by that tone I don’t want to bump in to you on holidays I’ll sweat and I’ll choke On thoughts in my throat Until you just walk away Cos every time I see you, Oh now I lose the power of speech Words remain out of reach And I always end up looking like your fool Every time I see you, Oh now I lose the power of speech And that took some time to teach and all I don’t want to converse with you in study class Cos all that I know Will blow up in smoke When it’s my turn to speak I’ll pass It’s not fair of you to surprise me out on the street I’ll fret and I’ll frown While my eyes bear down On the nothing by my feet Cos every time I see you, Oh now I lose the power of speech Words remain out of reach And I always end up looking like your fool Every time I see you, Oh now I lose the power of speech And that took some time to teach and all

BROTHER, O BROTHER LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 Got my lucky number from a million to one Now I watch my belly grow, turning red in the sun Thunderbolts and lightening getting hard to ignore I’m turning in to stone I need to find something more Brother, O brother, no more can I pretend How can we be family til we start being friends? I’ve been running and searching, now I’m calling your name Cos how can I sleep knowing I’m part of the shame? Sitting in my play pen building castles in the sand Dieing isn’t hard when someone’s holding your hand Brother, O brother, no more can I pretend How can we be family til we start being friends? I’ve been running and searching, now I’m calling your name Cos how can I sleep knowing I’m part of the shame? Thunderbolts and lightening getting hard to ignore Searching for our souls in the fog of war Feel a little guilty? Throw another bone Surrounded by my own I’ve never felt so alone Brother, O brother, no more can I pretend How can we be family til we start being friends? I’ve been running and searching, now I’m calling your name Cos how can I sleep knowing I’m part of the shame?

IT'S A BEGINNING LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 I get up later now I’m on my own Words ring in my ear, “Embrace the day” I don’t wanna put my records on Love is new and they all sound the same ‘Cos it feels like things just fall in line Makes me wanna give in all the time Every day is like an avalanche I dare not tell anyone We give ourselves away to every moment I’ve given up trying to play it cool for now Cos it feels like we just fall in line Now I wanna give you all my time It’s a beginning Something I’ve been waiting for It’s a beginning I don’t wanna lose it anymore Cos it looks like the tide is turning And it feels like the night is young Throw me in the fire Feed me to the lions Tell me I’m the only one Take me far away from here Where I can hear you speak ‘Cos we’re all hung up on stuff And I’ve had enough of talking tough It’s a beginning Something I’ve been waiting for It’s a beginning I don’t wanna lose it anymore Cos it looks like the tide is turning And it feels like the night is young Throw me in the fire Feed me to the lions Tell me I’m the only one

EVERYTHING GOES LYRICS

ALBUM: Goodnight, Bull Creek!, 2009 Everyone’s waiting I stand at the station cuz Everything goes I know, I know Pick up your feet boy It’s time to compete cuz Everything goes I know, I know What are dreams but Fanatical reasons You chop and change with the seasons Stop it you’re stressing me out Answer the phone because Everything goes I know, I know You’ve had your fun now There’s work to be done because Everything goes I know, I know What are dreams but Fanatical reasons You chop and change with the seasons How do you sleep through the doubt? Stop it you’re stressing me out All this talking about all the things I can’t be without Without Without Oh without Everyone’s waiting I stand at the station cuz Everything goes I know, I know Think with your crown Your heart’s weighing you down Because everything goes I know, I know What are dreams but Fantatical reasons You chop and change with the seasons How do you sleep through the doubt Stop it you’re stressing me out All this talking about all the things I can’t be without

And it’s true everybody knows People come and people go You mean much more to me I don’t want one of those to be you But I really don’t know what I can do I believe in love But do you? You are my friend We’ve always had an understanding yeah I can’t comprehend How we’re now talking different languages I believe in love
 I believe in love I believe in love But do you? And it’s true everybody knows People come and people go You mean much more to me I don’t one of those to be you But I really don’t know what I can do I believe in making up I believe in making up I believe in making up But do you?

NOWHERE WITHOUT YOU LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 I make a miserable D.J. getting drunk, playing records up late Wearing out a hole in my heart on the couch from when you went away Today wrote out a prescription leave all calls to the answering machine I don’t remember anything but I know that you know where I’ve been Where would I go? What would I do? I would be nowhere with out you Now I know heavens above you I can grow I just can’t make it on my own Watching terrible T.V it’s ok all our secrets we keep I used to dream of broken teeth now I lie awake watching you sleep If I’m so independent why when you leave am I digging up holes To hide and wait til you come back like a bad actor between roles Where would I go? What would I do? I would be nowhere without you Now I know heavens above you I can grow I just can’t make it on my own Good morning baby it’s raining outside But we’ve got all day and the suns in your eyes Frisky on whisky we’re champagne and wine Drinking in, sinking in love Where we’ll go I gloriously don’t know I’m nowhere without you (now I know) Heaven’s above you (I can grow)

SADNESS & WHISKEY LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 I don’t want to be a lone guy anymore Now I’ve found a love my lifes worth living for
 Never going back to god knows where I’ve been That’s a dying scene I don’t want to be that sentimental guy Always dreaming of the years that passed him by All the time forgetting what he holds on to And for me it’s you That’s why I’m hanging up my boots This time you know it’s true Do you remember ‘bout the time when we first met How were we to ever know what to expect Looking back at all the crazy crazy times Wishing you were mine Now I’m sitting on the front step of our house Just awaiting you to drive your car around If I didn’t stink of sadness and whisky Could you marry me? Cos this is where I’ll always be Come home and you will see Oh my love Oh my love Oh my love Now I’m sitting on the front step of our house Just awaiting you to turn your car around If I didn’t stink of sadness and whisky

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 Hardly spoke a word all night ‘Cept to tell me that you were alright Don’t worry Sitting holding up the bar Going out just aint no fun no more I’m sorry But you, you’re not to blame No you, you’re not to blame You’ve just spent so long holding on You’ve just spent so long holding on to a flame Told me you were going home I asked if you wanted to be alone I’ll come Grabbed my jacket, told my friends I was leaving, when I turned around You were gone But you, you’re not the one to blame No you, you’re not the one to blame You’ve just spent so long holding on You’ve just spent so long holding on You’ve just spent so long holding on to a flame

DONT' WALK ALONE LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 He’s the number one man in his community He’s got credibility and folks all know his name Running round the clock he’s working for the family Starting up a dynasty down in history But all I know for sure is how love can grow So don’t walk alone Don’t walk alone Starting up at eight checking that the factory Is making lots of money he’s got so much to lose Going through the books working up an inventory Dotting I’s and crossing T’s for his well oiled machine But all I know for sure is how love can grow So don’t walk alone Don’t walk alone ‘Cos all I know for sure is how love can grow So don’t walk alone Don’t walk alone Never breaks the rules defying the economy He’s buying lots of property to mark his territory Still he finds time to pop in to the P & C Chair the whole committee and drink a cup of tea But all I know for sure is how love can grow So don’t walk alone Don’t walk alone Cos all I know for sure is how love can grow So don’t walk alone Don’t walk alone But lying awake at night something just don’t feel right It’s like he’s let somebody down He can’t figure it out he’s done everything right Still he’s let somebody down When he leaves in the morning please don’t give up on him He’ll try not to let you down All I know for sure is our love can grow So don’t walk alone Don’t walk alone All I know for sure is our love can grow Don’t walk alone Don’t walk alone

ROCKS IN MY HEAD LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 I’m such a loser man I’ve been away from you so long Now you’re on my mind Forgetting how to talk I’ve been refusing you so long Are you still on my side? Worse than all the worst things that I’ve done Are the things that I said I nearly lost you there I must have Rocks in my head Rocks in my head I’m such a dreamer girl I just don’t get myself sometimes But here I am for real I can’t go on if I don’t know That you’re on my side Worse than all the worst things that I’ve done Are the things that I said I nearly lost you there I must have Rocks in my head Rocks in my head Rocks in my head Oh no! You could run a mile could lose your head I won’t make the same mistakes again Can’t believe I nearly lost you Rocks in my head Rocks in my head Rocks in my head That’s the way it feels Rocks in my head Rocks in my head Rocks in my head Oh no Friend You are my friend I always thought we were invincible But I can’t pretend That something strange aint come between us now I believe in love I believe in love I believe in love But do you? You are my mate For years they said we were inseparable But I can’t relate Cos lately we’ve been going differently I believe in love I believe in love I believe in love But do you? And it’s true everybody knows People come and people go You mean much more to me I don’t want one of those to be you But I really don’t know what I can do I believe in love But do you? You are my friend We’ve always had an understanding yeah I can’t comprehend How we’re now talking different languages I believe in love
 I believe in love I believe in love But do you? And it’s true everybody knows People come and people go You mean much more to me I don’t one of those to be you But I really don’t know what I can do I believe in making up I believe in making up I believe in making up But do you?

THE GREAT UNKNOWN LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 Tonight I wish I was the moon It always knows just what to do cos every times the same old song Dancing round this sleeping earth all night long Wandering past the mirrors gaze Noticing I aint shaved for days asks "just what the hell have you been up to?" "Haven’t you a place to be? Someone who needs you?" Hold me now promise you won’t let me go Through the memories and beyond the great unknown Hold me now promise you won’t let me go Cos I just can’t stand the thought of losing you Losing you Guess I’m stuck in the rain again Guess I’m stuck in the rain Guess I’m stuck in the rain again Guess I’m stuck in the rain Tryin’ to get lost in the night I’m shown up by those damn street lights as if under interrogation Seems everyone’s looking for an explanation Walk in to an ezy plus The guy behind the counters suss I haven’t done anything wrong Just haven’t known what to look for in so long Hold me now promise you won’t let me go Through the memories and beyond the great unknown Hold me now promise you won’t let me go Cos I just can’t stand the thought of losing you Losing you Guess I’m stuck in the rain again Guess I’m stuck in the rain Guess I’m stuck in the rain again Guess I’m stuck in the rain

COMIN' AROUND LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 Yesterday I felt so down but now I’m coming around Felt like throwing in the towel but now I’m coming around Bumped in to my drug dealer and now I’m coming around Yesterday I felt so down but now I’m coming around Sometimes I just need my baby to keep me on the level Sometimes I just lose my faith won’t you stay with me forever I had a feeling that I couldn’t shake but you blew it off the radar I’ll be holding on to you Yesterday I felt so down but now I’m coming around Felt like throwing in the towel but now I’m coming around Sometimes I just need my baby to keep me on the level Sometimes I just lose my faith won’t you stay with me forever I had a feeling that I couldn’t shake but you blew it off the radar I’ll be holding on to you Yesterday I felt so down but now I’m coming around Felt like throwing in the towel but now I’m coming around Bumped in to my drug dealer and now I’m coming around Yesterday I felt so down but now I’m coming around Sometimes I just need my baby to keep me on the level Sometimes I just lose my faith won’t you stay with me forever I had a feeling that I couldn’t shake but you blew it off the radar I’ll be holding on to you

BATTLE OF 2004 LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 In the year of 2004 We were sent to end a bitter score Not knowing the purpose of the war Buoyed by our nations pride We battled on inspired Believing we were admired But the enemy was all around Now my instruments are shutting down On my radio your voice I found Now it’s the only sound I’m hurtling to the ground Don’t leave me alone ‘cos I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Don’t leave me alone ‘cos I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Now my life is coming to an end As I’m running out of oxygen And you stranger are my only friend Tell your people not to make The same mistakes that we made Don’t leave me alone ‘cos I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down
 Don’t leave me alone ‘cos I’m coming down
 Yeah I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Don’t leave me alone ‘cos I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Don’t leave me alone ‘cos I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down Yeah I’m coming down

DARLIN' WON'T YOU COME? LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 Darlin’ won’t you come run away with me I’ve rubbed off my palms and I’ve worn out my knees And I don’t feel this place holds a lot for me So darlin’ won’t you come run away with me Darlin’ won’t you come run away with me It’s hard finding hope when you’re lost at sea And I want to belong but I’d rather be free So darlin’ won’t you come run away with me I was dumb I was foolin’ around Always searching for something I’d found Now I know I could die and I’d be happy So darlin’ won’t you come run away with me Darlin’ won’t you come run away with me I’ve burnt every bridge and I’ve walked every street And I’ve started to question what happiness means So darlin won’t you come run away with me I was dumb I was foolin’ around Always searching for something I’d found Now I know I could die and I’d be happy So darlin’ won’t you come run away with me Darlin’ won’t you come and retire with me I’m done with this crowd and I’m done with this scene And you’re the only one who believes in me So darlin’ won’t you come and retire with me
