DON'T YOU THINK IT'S TIME

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 Don’t you think it’s time Time to start a new Time for changing views Time for making up your mind Don’t you think it’s time Time for moving on Time for growing strong Time to leave the past behind You’ve been on my mind Oh you’ve been on my mind You’ve been on my mind Oh you’ve been on my mind Don’t you think it’s time Time for quelling fear Time for a new year Time for meaning what you say Don’t you think it’s time Time for easing doubt Time for reaching out Time to open up your eyes You’ve been on my mind Oh you’ve been on my mind You’ve been on my mind Oh you’ve been on my mind Don’t you think it’s time Time for trusting more Without keeping score Time to let forgiveness out Don’t you think it’s time Time for showing grace Time for having faith Time to make more of your time You’ve been on my mind Oh you’ve been on my mind You’ve been on my mind Oh you’ve been on my mind

FRIEND LYRICS

ALBUM: SUBURBAN SONGBOOK, 2006 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?

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
 Could you marry me? Cos you are where I’ll always be Come home and you will see

FLAME LYRICS

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
