about

Run to the Sun was made at home in Devon away from everything and everyone. The album grew itself, jamming around with my son Archie on drums, having fun and just keeping it simple. Rough and ready, quick and easy with only ourselves to please, I can hear my old band The Collaborators channelling through the speakers. The main themes seem to be of nostalgia and reminiscence, sunshine and happiness. It was fun to make and I hope it’s a fun listen as well.

Track Name: Take That Away
Take That Away
(Morris)
You’ll find me sitting there
In my favourite chair
Wasting my life away
Thinking and drinking
Financially sinking
Can anyone help me today
Well there’s you and there’s me
And the air that we breathe
And the love and the life that we share
It may not seem much
But it’s more than enough
And no one can take that away
Don’t even try to take that away
Well I’m still sitting there
In my favourite chair
Wasting my life away
Thinking and drinking
Financially sinking
Can anyone help me today
Well there’s you and there’s me
And the air that we breathe
And the love and the life that we share
It may not seem much
But it’s more than enough
And no one can take that away
Don’t even try to take that away
Track Name: Rock and Roll till the Sun Goes Down
Rock And Roll Till The Sun Goes Down
(Morris)
You gotta rock and roll till the sun goes down
Bump and jive wear a hound dog frown
Shake a rubber chicken till it’s feathers fly
Drink a lot of whisky till your feeling dry
You’ll never know what shape you’re in
Until you let that feeling in
You gotta scream and shout, rock it out
And shake it till the sun goes down
Take a little something if you’re feeling blue
Wiggle in the middle, forget you’re you
Grab yourself a monkey and make it shine
Strolling and a rolling till the end of time
You’ll never know what shape you’re in
Until you let that feeling in
You gotta scream and shout, rock it out
And shake it till the sun goes down
Well if you’re short on time and don’t have a clue
Here’s a little thing that you wanna do
Live it up, rock it out and make it new
Get it back together and when you’re through
You gotta rock and roll till the sun goes down
Wear a tall cat as a battered crown
Dance yourself naked like you never learn
Catch yourself looking when it’s not your turn
You’ll never know what shape you’re in
Until you let that feeling in
You gotta scream and shout, rock it out
And shake it till the sun goes down
If you’re short on time and don’t have a clue
Here’s a little thing that you wanna do
Live it up, rock it out and make it new
Get it back together and when you’re through
You gotta rock and roll till the sun goes down
Bump and jive wear a hound dog frown
Dance yourself naked like you never learn
Catch yourself looking when it’s not your turn
You’ll never know what shape you’re in
Until you let that feeling in
You gotta scream and shout, rock it out
And shake it till the sun goes
Scream and shout, rock it out
And shake it till the sun goes
Scream and shout, rock it out
And shake it till the sun goes down

Track Name: Way Back When
Way Back When
(Morris)
I don’t mind if the sun don’t shine
Cos I’d still feel the same
It was a day like this when we first kissed
In that carpark in the rain
And I don’t mind how we spend our time
It’s like I always say
Day’s like these are all we need
For things to be ok
Do you remember watching the band run through their set
Do you remember those early days we met
Do you remember the back of the crowd standing on that bench
Do you remember the Sunday nights we spent
Cos we go way back when
We were dancing to the band
On the night when this began
Well I don’t mind if the sun don’t shine
Cos I’d still feel the same
It was a day like this when we first kissed
In that carpark in the rain
And I don’t mind how we spend our time
It’s like I always say
Day’s like these are all we need
For things to be ok
Do you remember watching the band run through their set
Do you remember those early days we met
Do you remember the back of the crowd standing on that bench
Do you remember the Sunday nights we spent
Cos we go way back when
Track Name: Run to the Sun
Run To The Sun
(Morris)
Take that ride, get behind the wheel enjoy the drive
Cos they don’t make ‘em like this anymore
You never really do know what’s in-store
We’ve got the road ahead so let’s explore
Come on let’s run to the sun
In the early morning light clouds are high and sky is bright
Turn it over engine’s on
Our destination is in reach, heading down to Newquay beach
We’ll make it there before the day is done
Take that ride, get behind the wheel enjoy the drive
Cos they don’t make ‘em like this anymore
You never really do know what’s in-store
We’ve got the road ahead so let’s explore
Come on let’s run to the sun
In the evening we’ll unwind, everyone’s arrived on time
Drinking in the setting sun
Splittie’s lined up by the bay, 25’s along the way
Catch it all before the day is done
Take that ride, get behind the wheel enjoy the drive
Cos they don’t make ‘em like this anymore
You never really do know what’s in-store
We’ve got the road ahead so let’s explore
Come on let’s run to the sun
Heading back we’ll take it slow on the road along the coast
We’ve got all the day ahead
Cos every year we make it down in this classic camper van
Running to the sun and home again
Take that ride, get behind the wheel enjoy the drive
Cos they don’t make ‘em like this anymore
You never really do know what’s in-store
We’ve got the road ahead so let’s explore
Come on let’s run to the sun
Let’s run to the sun
Track Name: Kate
Kate
(Morris)
Mystified by something she cried
Screaming like the lover in Wuthering Heights
Was the scream on the plastic
Or the cry from your heart
In your eyes a growing confusion
Looking to her youth to find a final solution
To the conflict she draws on
For her heart to grow stronger in a song
So let ‘em cry for you, Kate I know that
Everyone looks to you, everybody
Being at last in love, Kate I know that
You’ll be the first to lose
James she cried, out of the album
Get yourself a gun or be shot with your back turned
The only heart that was broken
By the tune she played out loud
Of your age you are the oldest
Christ you know when it’s hard to control it
Friends fall like flies
Off the wall you built to hide yourself away
So let ‘em cry for you, Kate I know that
Everyone looks to you, everybody
Being at last in love, Kate I know that
You’ll be the first to lose
So let ‘em cry for you, Kate I know that
Everyone looks to you, everybody
Being at last in love, Kate I know that
You’ll be the first to lose
James she cried out of the album
Get yourself a gun or be shot with your back turned
The only heart that was broken
By the tune she played out loud
Of your age you are the oldest
Christ you know when it’s hard to control it
Friends fall like flies
Off the wall you built to hide yourself away
So let ‘em cry for you, Kate I know that
Everyone looks to you, everybody
Being at last in love, Kate I know that
You’ll be the first to lose
Track Name: Open Your Eyes
Open Your Eyes
(Morris)
When you look out your window what do you see
Does the sun shine brightly is the grass always green
When you step out of your door onto the street
Where will this journey take your feet
You’ll never know which way you got to go
Until you hit the highway, let the river flow
You’ll never know which way it’s gonna be
Until you open your eyes until you learn to see
What you need to see
When you look out your window what do you see
Is the world the kind of place you want it to be
When you step out of your door onto the street
What kind of people would you meet
You’ll never know which way you got to go
Until you hit the highway, let the river flow
You’ll never know which way it’s gonna be
Until you open your eyes until you learn to see
What you need to see
Ask yourself a question
Do you do enough
Each life should be a lesson
In learning how to love
You’ll never know which way you got to go
Until you hit the highway, let the river flow
You’ll never know which way it’s gonna be
Until you open your eyes until you learn to see
You’ll never know which way you got to go
Until you hit the highway, let the river flow
You’ll never know which way it’s gonna be
Until you open your eyes until you learn to see
Track Name: On My Way Back to Summer
On My Way Back To Summer
(Morris/Hannington)
Heads held low as the rain comes down
Kicking through the puddles on the rain soaked ground
The sky is dark and you’re wet right to the bone
End of season in a university town
No one wants to be the last one hanging round
I got a plan and I know where I am bound
Cos I’m on my way back to summer
Chasing yesterday
And I’m on my way back home
And I’m on my way back to summer
Cos it’s always a better day when you head into the sun
People stare down at their mobile phones
Stepping off the pavement through the traffic cones
It’s lonely in the city when no one wants to know
It shouldn’t really rain at this time of year
The town is pretty empty and the streets are clear
I gotta go, I gotta get right out of here
Cos I’m on my way back to summer
Chasing yesterday
And I’m on my way back home
And I’m on my way back to summer
Cos it’s always a better day when you head into the sun
I love to feel the sunshine warm upon my back
I’m chasing yesterday, I’m on my way back
And I’m on my way back to summer
Chasing yesterday
And I’m on my way back home
And I’m on my way back to summer
Cos it’s always a better day when you head into the sun
On my way back to summer
On my way back home
On my way back to summer
On my way back home
Track Name: Leaving
Leaving
(Morris)
She turns her face into the wind
As she starts walking away
From where she used to live with them
It was impossible to stay
So she set her mind to leaving
She couldn’t wait another day
She’s not the child in her Mother’s eyes
She’s like a flower that is growing wild
If there’s something she wants she won’t be denied
She thinks she’s old enough to know
She says it’s time I’ve got to go
She leaves them crying in the rain
A case held tightly in her hand
She only grabbed what she could take
There wasn’t time to hang around
When she set her mind to leaving
She couldn’t wait another day
She’s not the child in her Mother’s eyes
She’s like a flower that is growing wild
If there’s something she wants she won’t be denied
She thinks she’s old enough to know
She says it’s time I’ve got to go
She calls up everyone she knows
To try to find a place to sleep
Get herself out of the cold
It’s no life living on the street
Since she set her mind to leaving
She wouldn’t wait another day
She’s not the child in her Mother’s eyes
She’s like a flower that is growing wild
If there’s something she wants she won’t be denied
She thinks she’s old enough to know
She says it’s time I’ve got to go
She’s not the child in her Mother’s eyes
She’s like a flower that is growing wild
If there’s something she wants she won’t be denied
She thinks she’s old enough to know
She says it’s time I’ve got to go
