Track Name: Labour of Love
There are places we used to play
That I still remember
There were faces along the way
That will always smile
It was a labour we loved we were doing
Cos nobody made us do it
And no one helped us through it but ourselves

There are mistakes from back in the day
That I still remember
All the time that slipped by in the hours we were wasting
Some of us never made it through it
Whereas others they just blew it
And the nearest we came to it was in our minds

And we never found a way to the source
But the noise didn’t alter our course
With no thought of the resources we were spending
It was the best of times if we knew
On a mission to get through
To get nearer to the start before the ending

There were guitars made for stars that we tuned in the bars we played in
Where they’re now I don’t know but I’d really like to hold one
And the songs we were playing were like strings they kept changing
And the chords and the thoughts we were saying kept rearranging
Track Name: When The Curtain Falls
WHEN THE CURTAIN FALLS


When the Curtain falls on the stage
And the sound of the trumpet fades
I will play this last call into an empty hall
So sweet when the curtain falls

There is no more sound only quiet
And these honest words to describe it
Goodbye old friends as you go I'll wave again
To you please come back this way

Now thats all we have to give
But I hope that you all will live
Your lives in the sun and be good to everyone
You meet when the curtain falls
We'll meet
When the curtain falls
Until then
When the curtain falls
Track Name: Another Country Song
Now I’ve had my rainy days just like any man would say
It’s not that my life’s that bad more that you were all I had
When the night time starts to fall and my regret starts to call
And my hand it writes your name and why you left just like you came
 
Now as the band strikes up its song and the steel guitar plays on
All the dancers have all gone its just another old theremin song

Now when the fog comes rolling in and I feel that western wind
There’s no music that’s more sad than of the dreams I used to have
 
Now in life we’re torn apart and I’m lonely for her heart
Lovely as a rose in spring so once more I'll start to sing
Track Name: Ooh Baby (Stay With Me)
OOH BABY WONT YOU STAY WITH ME BABY, STAY WITH ME BABY, STAY WITH ME BABY
OOH BABY WON’T YOU BE WITH ME BABY, BE WITH ME BABY, BE WITH ME BABY

WHEREVER I GO IN THE WORLD I’LL ALWAYS BE THINKING OF YOU
ARE YOU THINKING OF ME?

WHATEVER I DO EVERYDAY I’LL ALWAYS BE DOING WITH YOU
WHAT YOU DOING TODAY?

WHOEVER I SEE WHEN I WAKE I’LL ALWAYS BE SEEING YOU THERE
ARE YOU SEEING ME HERE

AND WHEN I WALK INTO A ROOM I KNOW THAT YOU’RE WALKING WITH ME
ARE YOU FEELING THAT TOO?

AND WHEN I SEE YOU AGAIN WHAT WILL WE WANT TO SAY
AND I’M SAYING IT HERE
Track Name: A Different Person
I’m a different person now that’s why I know how
It’s a different feeling now that I own this ground

Once I walked through streets behind each door no one was in
No money and no sleep my office on a station seat
Passed and pushed around no place for me in my hometown
Just sadness that I found until I stopped and turned around

I’m a different person now that’s why I know how
It’s a different feeling now that I own this ground
There may be fields left to sow but I don’t really want to know
I'm a different person now and its a a different way I’ve found

Working on a line to make it out here was my aim
For forty thousand days and then I’d reached my final claim
So I cut my strings away, in change I worked two more decades
Then boredom turned to pain until I saw another way

And I’m a different person now that’s why I know how
It’s a different feeling now that I own this ground
There may be fields left to sow but I don’t really want to know
I'm a different person now and its a a different way I’ve found
Track Name: The Things You Said and Done
You used to be so nice but it was me who paid the price
You took my home and dressed it up with charm
You changed my careless ways recycled all the waste
But now you’re gone the things you said and done

And when I think of all we done
I thought you’re the only one
I woke up fresh today and then you went way
This race is run the things you said and done

You used to be so kind not nothing you wouldn’t find
My letters posted and a beer in the fridge
You hoovered up the stairs put cushions on the chairs
But now that’s done the things you said and done

And when I think of how you would laugh
And now the tap won’t run the bath
I woke up in my bed my hand was on my neck
This day is done
The things you said and done

You used to kiss my head now you may as well be dead
You must be putting me on the things you said and done

And it’s no fun - the things you said and done
We’d just begun - the things you said and done
Its tea for one - the things you said and done
Now I got none - the things you said and done
Track Name: Thunder Bridge
WISHING I WAS BACK AT THUNDER BRIDGE
KICKING A BALL AT THE LAWN HEDGE
RIDING A BIKE DOWN THE ROAD EDGE
WATCHING THE CRICKET IN THE VILLAGE SHED

WISHING I WAS BACK AT THUNDER BRIDGE
THROWING BREAD AT THE GEESE IN THE POND
FRESH CLOTHES HANGING ON THE LINE
WISH I WAS BACK IN AN EASY TIME

SPINNING IN CIRCLES TILL YOU CATCH YOUR TAIL
LYING IN THE GREEN GRASS IN THE FOG OF THE DALE
CARRY MY BAG TO THE TOP OF THE HILL
HIGH IN THE CLOUDS WHERE THE VILLAGE IS STILL

CATCHING A BALL IN A SUMMER FIELD
RIDING A SLEDGE DOWN A WINTER STREAM
RUN WITH A DOG THROUGH A STARLIGHT SEAM
WISHING I WAS BACK AT THUNDER BRIDGE
Track Name: In My Dreams of You
Each night, I go to bed and I say a prayer
I close my eyes, and then I slide, so softly there
As I fall into sleep, dream my dreams so I’ll meet
You there, like dreamers dare, in my dreams

Walk with you, and with you, it’s just the same
All the time, still you’re mine, together again
In my dreams I can see, that you’re here beside me
And I say, will you stay in my dreams

Dream all your dreams for me
Sleep you can sleep
Here’s where I want to be
Just in my dreams

It’s too bad, all I have, is these dreams of you
And to think of them now, makes me sad it’s true
And you say now, go to sleep
So tonight once more we’ll meet
And you’ll still be, here with me,
In my dreams

To be here, with you, in my dreams
Track Name: Blaze of Fire
BLAZE OF FIRE

I’m getting out of here in a blaze of fire
I’m tearing down the road to somewhere higher
Don’t look out for the victims they’re all gone
Brushed out of the pictures you once hung

I’m getting out of here in a blaze of fire
I’m tearing down the road to somewhere higher
Don’t look out for the victims they’re all gone
Brushed out of the pictures you once hung

I met a crooked driver on my way down
He told me what points north it now points south
He gave to me a stone with many sounds
And if you listen you might hear them now

I’m getting out of here in a blaze of fire
I’m tearing down the road to somewhere higher
Don’t look out for the victims they’re all gone
Brushed out of the pictures you once hung

Trying to embrace my guilty heart
Home is where I left to feed my art
What was going on was plain to see
Now I don’t know what will become of me

I’m getting out of here in a blaze of fire
I’m tearing down the road to somewhere higher
Don’t look out for the victims they’re all gone
Brushed out of the pictures you once hung
Track Name: Your Honky Tonk
Well you can do anything you want to do
Well you can say anything you want to say
You can play any song you want to play
But you can’t honk your honky tonk in here

You can drink any drink you want to drink
But you may find the more you think the more you stink
You can talk in tune as much as sing
But you can’t honk your honky tonk in here

You can walk anywhere you want to walk
You can talk to anyone to whom you want to talk
You can go anywhere you want to be
You can see anything you want to see
But not with that thing

You can be anyone you want to be
But you can’t honk your honky tonk in here

You can dream any dream you want to dream
You can get anything you want to get
You can bank any prizes you can win
But if you plonk that honky tonk you won’t get in
So don’t bring that thing

So you can’t honk your honky tonk in here
Don’t honk your honky tonk in here
