about

Ten track album of solo acoustic studio performances. Old style recording in live takes in front of one mic straight down to DAT at a studio in Burgess Hill, West Sussex in 1998 with my trusty small body ‘76 Gibson B25. The songs were written between 1982 and 1997 when I was between 16 and 31 and are released here for the first time in 20 years.

Track Name: Give It Up
Give it up
Give it up it's not worth the time
You can wait
You can wait but you will find
It's not the way that you thought it would ever be
It never is, it never was and it never will be
Give it up
Give it up it's not worth the time
You can look you can search 'till your eyes are blind
It's not the way that you're travelling to set you free
It never is, it never was and it never will be
One decision you can make in your life
Can steer you right or wrong
But you decided to do nothing at all
And now your chance has gone
Track Name: Future's We Plan Become the Memories of the Past
Futures we plan
Become the memories of the past
And where we stand so strong now will be dust
It’s easy enough to predict the path of a certainty
It’s easy for us to put our trust in immortality
In dreams we have escapes
That upon waking pass
The morning skies witness the memory of the loss
Track Name: The Final Tune's For You
I glanced up for a second and my song it was nearing the end
I searched the room hard but my eyes could not focus on you
As the tune finished weaving into hearts of the people around
I played slowly my last and my longest the one wrote for you
And I laid down my final tune for you
As the night turned into morning I’d walked home this way before
My guitar was still wet from the rain and the tears cried for you
So I drank myself into tomorrow and the bitter taste stayed for a time
But I knew I was right and that happiness I’d left behind
And I laid down my final tune for you
Had you been there and had gone before I was aware
Of your presence in the room
So I looked up for a last time with love for you stealing my eyes
I remember when we first met you laughed & the last time we cried
I’d like it to end as it started but I’m sure youve been gone for to long
But I hope that one day you will realise you might have been wrong
And I laid down my final tune for you
Track Name: Shot Of Guilt
I’m drawing on now and the nights grow dark
I bring the ice and the wind and the rain
I’m coming back to break your heart
I’ll make you wish it was summer again
I am the night that comes in winter
I make the rain on a summer’s day
I make you fall in love in springtime
And then in winter I take it away
Remember in the summer your happiness overflowed
Walking in the woodland and bubbling down the road
Remember how you laughed and how you sang
Carefree and lightly you went stepping down the sand
And then you felt it that shot of guilt
Taking knocks at your heart
And then you felt it that shot of guilt and ask yourself
Why did you fall in love, why did you fall in love
Why did you fall in love again
Remember how you laughed and you joked about it all
Do you remember saying that your love would never ever die
But you never really reckoned on this
And now you sit at home and again you cry
Track Name: In A Restless Night There Lays A Calmer Day
Just relax and remember
Why you came here in the first place
Just unwind and you will find
In a restless night there lays a calmer day
Like a spark to a fire
Like a wind whipped up into a howling gale
Things look bad but remember
In a restless night there lays a calmer day
There is a right for every wrong
There is a left for every right
There is a darkness in us all
That should be shining like the brightest light
When you feel that desperation
In the face of all the choices that you made
Keep your strength in indecision
In a restless night there lays a calmer day
Track Name: My Old Scene
I want to go back
To realise the things I should have been
And see the signs I missed but should have seen
I want to go back to my old scene
I want to go back
To pick the threads up where I let them lie
Cast off the deadwood for another try
I want to go back to my old scene
I want to go back now I’ve been away
I need to remember songs that I used to play
I long for the words and the tunes I knew before today
I want to go back
To where I left the road I’m travelling
To where I thought the grass was never green
I want to go back to my old scene
Track Name: In My Song
There have been day's when I've wanted to tell you
Say how I felt but the words wouldn't get through
I sat alone and my heart would be lonely for you
Words I had planned to say suddenly slipped away
I wrote it down to explain how I felt for you
I'd only managed to tell you that I loved you in my song
Yes I love you in my song
But these words I couldn't say until you'd gone
Now that we both have advanced
And these feelings are coming through so fast
I mean to show you just what I'm feeling forever in my heart
I'll hold a love for you if you say that you want me to
I mean to show you just what I'm feeling is true
Yes I love you in my song
But these words I couldn't say until you'd gone
There must be a time and place
Where I won't let my chances go to waste
I'll hold you so close in my arms
And I'll show what I'm feeling so strong
And I'll finally say to your face what I've said in this song
Yes I love you
Track Name: I'll Be Gone
Laying your head on my pillow
Breathing so softly and so low
I was awake but I was waiting
Trying not to wake you when I go
Wake with the new light of the morning
The cold of the grey skies touching down
You dream that you hear somebody calling
But it wasn’t me babe I was gone
I’ll be gone like I was never there
I’ll be gone like a river flows
I’ll be gone and you will not see me then
I’ll be gone before you know
Taking the path of least resistance
Going the way that I came in
Making it easier to hate me
Finding you somewhere to begin
Track Name: I Can Tell By Your Eyes
Quiet now your force is spent
You’ve calmed your shaking fears
And you have found your way again
I can tell by your eyes
I can tell by your eyes you’re leaving
So who do you turn to
When the one’s you wanted most
Just fade away from view
I can tell by your eyes
I can tell by your eyes you’re leaving
Sweet thoughts fading as the night grows chill
Shadows are rising
As the movement keeps you still9
I can tell by your eyes
I can tell by your eyes you’re leaving
Track Name: I Can Change
Breathing in spite of yourself
Trying to lie still
Love turned to guilt
Through the many years I’ve known you now
Shown you how I can change
Reaching inside my heart
You were closer to me
Back at the start
When strong with nothing much to overcome
But now I’ve shown I can change
I can change like a day into night
Like a night into day
I can melt away
I can change like a light into dark
Like a dark into light
I can fade away
Holding out till the end
Hand in my hand
Lovers pretend
That they’ve many happy times ahead
But like I said I can change
