Wild Side Paradox:

 

Feeling good! Was feeling fine I felt it all the time.

The sun was high, the light was bright. Everything was mine

Chorus:

You walk on the wild side baby you walk on the wild side friend

I never saw it coming I never thought it’d end

 

Your beauty well it stole my heart, your laughter and your smile

Beneath the seas of tranquil blue, we lasted such a while

Chorus:

 

Call it what you want my love, it lingered in the pain

Foundations laid years before, long before the blame

Chorus:

 Tourjours  I‘amour, pourquoi la peur?

(Always the love/Why the fear)?

 

Madness when it strikes the heart allows the wall to fall

Nothings sane and nothings real as demons start to crawl

Chorus:

Jerusalem still visits us in children and in fate

Remember near the Lion gate you didn’t want to wait.

Chorus

Hidden bonds that bind us all are carried in the Soul

Entangled truths corrupt the flow till love connects the whole

 

I walk on the wild side baby I walk on the wild side friend

I always saw this coming I always saw this end. 

Ireland (Orphan’s Song):

 (Instrumental Irish picking)

 Well I wanted to tell you that I care that you and I belong somewhere IRELAND

 

Irish made and Saxon raised I lived my life in quite a daze IRELAND

Been away all my life, had a home, two kids a wife IRELAND

 

CHORUS:

 A Mother: I never knew

 Father: Where were you

 Daughters I’m missing you my daughters I’m missing you

 Sisters: What do you do

 Brother: Am I like you

 

Was it Catholic Church and Irish State branded us to our sweet fate IRELAND

Father’s blamed and mother’s shamed, a child’s heart still remains in IRELAND

Loved by those who took us in, gave us their name, cleansed our sin IRELAND

 

CHORUS:

 All around the world I’d roam but deep inside I felt alone IRELAND

When I landed on your shore, felt that I’d been here before IRELAND

The music in the pub rang true repeating history through and through IRELAND

 

CHORUS:

 

I don’t know who is me! I’ve no identity

 My Life I do accept with all its mystery

 I’ll take what is and live, unite and then forgive

 Thank the ones who gave me life-I thank the one who let me live (I thank the one she let me live)

There was a time:

 

There was a time

My little girls

Could see me strong

I was their world

 

Women beside me (women beside me)

We steered the helm

Before the fog

Did overwhelm me

 

Oh to sail

Into this

A place called lonely

The dark abyss

 

Words go astray

What can I do

To love somebody

Whose love you knew

 

But in the corner

 Of Daddy’s room

 He shakes and rattles

 This house is doomed

 

There was a time

My little girls

We were so strong

We were the World

 

 

.

Daddy’s Little Girls:

 

I’m your little girl Daddy don’t you know you broke my little heart

I know you loved Mummy. Did you run to try a brand new start?

 

How do I sleep I love you so

My tears for you say don’t go

You’re no longer my hero to me

 

Daddy’s little girls

Daddy’s little girls

Live in his heart

 

I just loved our family everyday I’d like to hear your voice

I’m your little girl Daddy. When you left you left me with no choice

 

How do I fight the terror in me

The sadness flows so easily

There’s no bird singing in the trees to me

 

Daddy’s little girls

Daddy’s little girls

Daddy’s little girls

Live in his heart

 

How do I sleep I love you so

My tears for you say don’t go

You’re no longer my hero to me

 

Daddy’s little girls

Daddy’s little girls

Daddy’s little girls

Live in his heart

I don’t know why

 She wakes up in the dark, there’s panic in her heart

 I don’t really know

 If love is on her mind, then it’s the cruel kind

 Someone has to go

 Ahhh Ahhh

  I don’t know what to say, you’re closed and far away

I guess our love is done

Is that really true? If only you knew

The hurts too strong to stay

Ahhh Ahhh

 

 Don’t hold onto this accept what is just is?

 Try to live-don’t jump from that bridge

 The clock was set in time, way on down the line

 Please don’t cry- I don’t know why-Do You don’t know why?

 

Once there was a place, love in outer space

 Children laughed out loud

 Flowers everywhere and joy in our stares

 Till we joined that crowd.

 

Ahhh Ahhh

Death Of A Family man:

 

 I’m just a pig a monster in your eyes

Another man who lies and justifies

A thug-someone to despise

 

The judge she says I can read men’s minds

Her teary eyes, your wife she’s so refined

Your build says that you’re unkind

 

What?

 

CHORUS:

 

Doe ray me can’t you see

Yonder dies a family man

What a price lost paradise

Where’s justice in your law?

Ah Your family law just a corporate whore

Lawyers on the game paid to blame and shame

No EQ there Just legalised fear.

 

I never hit I never tried to kill

Her perjury she bares me her ill will

Judicial games reflect the lawyer’s bill

 

Take the kids wrench their hearts from me

The family law far to blind to see

 I just gave up you never heard my plea

 

 

Chorus

Dr Pill:

 

 Hey Dr Pill

I like the blue one’s best

They give the kind of rest

 That’s overdue

These endless nights

I always knew

Please give me my pill

Please give me my pill

 

Hey Dr Pill

I need a hit tonight

To turn down the sight

That blinks till dawn

In this old black dog

I’ve always worn

Please give me my pill

Please give me my pill

 

Hey Dr Pill

There’s nothing wrong with me

It’s just I been set free

She used to care

The love I loved

That isn’t there

 

Please give me my pill

Don’t give me my pill

Don’t give me my pill

Don’t give me my pill

How can I say:

 

In New Delhi there’s a child on the street

Sleeping rough sleeping deep

Is she dead? I can’t say for certain

Have I got what it takes?

 

Chorus:

 

How can I say

If I don’t show

How can I trust

Where trust won’t go

 

In the hall there’s a blue-eyed beauty

Who beckons me with her key

Once inside, will I stay for ever

Will love grow or will it die?

 

Chorus:

 

There’s a monk preaching words of wisdom

Peaceful Karma, Kingdom come

I really want to grasp what you’re preaching

Can I find my soul in time?

 

Chorus:

 

What really counts is the space that I’m living

Running scared, feeling free

Just escaped from the chains of madness

Am I damned or glory bound?

New Love:

I just phoned to say

 At the dance last night

 If I said that I loved you

 Well I was really quite drunk

 New love (you love)

 New love (you love)

 Arrived too soon

 Thank you-Good bye

Beyond Blue/The Burden:

 

Papa went to war he flew in the skies don’t know what he saw but memories survive

He told me that his time in the desert was fine with peace came the pain, the guilt and the shame

 

Chorus:

 

I will wear that for you

I  go beyond blue

 

Her Mother has a picture a man in uniform but he never made it so I was informed

His smiling face stayed in her heart but how do you face it when the end is the start

 

Chorus:

 

Om lalalla ahh  Om lalala ahh  Ahh Ahh

 

I travelled the world and then I found you. I gave you my heart you gave me yours too

But now it’s in pieces like stars in the sky. You say you don’t love me but why do you cry

 

Chorus

 

Our little children, two angels were made. I’m telling you now true love never fades

Don’t carry the burden it’s not yours to own. Live your sweet lives but not all alone.

 

Chorus:

Om lalala ahh  Om lalala ahh  Ahh Ahh

Hippy Girl:

 

 

I want a hippy girl

Long, long, hair tied in ribbon and lace (hippy girl)

I want a hippy girl

Settle on a farm with her playful face (hippy girl)

I want a hippy girl

Gonna just love me, gonna give me the space (groovy girl)

 

 

I want a hippy girl

Rides a horse no Mercedes benz (hippy girl)

I want a hippy girl

Her painted pony by the wooden fence (hippy girl)

I want a hippy girl

She’s always laughing at those suited gents (groovy girl)

 

 

I want a hippy girl

Kind of smart with a biting wit (hippy girl)

I want a hippy girl

Her banjo playing Neil Young licks (hippy girl)

I want a hippy girl

Stays with me when things turn shit (groovy girl)

 

 

Time goes so fast things I never did things I never lived

 

Life goes so fast. Love I never did. Love I tried to give.

 

(Repeat Verse One)

Metaphysically:

 

Who are we

Metaphysically

Just energy

For eternity

 

What if you never knew love

What if you never knew love

 

Where are you

When life is through

And all you knew

 False and true

 

What if you never knew love?

What if you never knew love?

 

The victory and the glory

Defeat, the sad story

What did you learn about love

 

The Status and great feat

The suffering and deceit

What did you learn about love

 

From the rich and the poor

Those you hate and adore

What did you learn about love

 

From the violent and the meek

The ugly and the creep

What did you learn about Love

 

So just be kind

To those you find

Who’ve closed their mind

Left love behind

 

What if you never knew love
