I DO

I DO by C.Kulukundis/J.Mattsson

Tongue-tied again
Bothered like I can’t remember when
And I don’t know if I’ll get there tonight
If the words’ll come out right
 
But something’s amiss
And ever slightly sweeter in your kiss
It may be the flicker in the lights
But you’re such a dream tonight
 
I do babe, I do when I’m with you
In an unfamiliar way
But I do babe
‘Cos it all makes sense with you and I do
 
Day dreams are fine
Imagining your body next to mine
But a hundred nights of dreaming ain’t the same
As you whispering my name
 
I do babe, I do when I’m with you
In an unfamiliar way
But I do babe
‘Cos it all makes sense with you and I do

THE DISHES

THE DISHES by C.Kulukundis/D.Ogilvy

Yes, I know that it’s hard
They said it would be
I swear I never wanted it easy
Try as I might
Uphill all the way
There’s never time for me to have my say
 
I don’t want to let you down
I just need to get my feet up off the ground
But there’s still the dishes to do
 
So from time to time
I’m forced to admit
I’ve made some errors in judgement
In too deep too young
No time to explore things
I’m sure that’s why the phone never rings
 
I don’t want to let you down
I just need to get my feet up off the ground
and there’s still the dishes to do
 
I can hear you say
That we talked about it
All the in-betweens
But how to know
How haunted I’d become
By the might have been
It’s almost enough
To see his face smiling up at me
But still wanna fly free, and you say
 
Go towards the light
Go now while it’s shining
And know you’ll still be here waiting
With arms open wide
For me to come home
This time with some peace of my own
 
I don’t want to let you down
I just need to get my feet up off the ground
But there’s still the dishes to do
Yeah, there’s still the dishes to do
 

HOW LONG

HOW LONG by C.Kulukundis/J.Mattsson/D.Ogilvy

Don’t ask me if you’re my one and only
Wish you didn’t need to know
Please ignore it when the pieces don’t fit
That’s the way it goes
 
I know you’re hoping
That my heart will one day open
 
How far is too far to go
How long is too long ago
How long is too long alone
 
When I’m haunted, dark and daunted
Don’t know why you need to see
Wish you wouldn’t ask me, just leave me lonely
Leave me where I need to be
 
I know you’re waiting
But you can’t stop my heart from breaking
 
How far is too far to go
How long is too long ago
How long is too long alone

DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO

DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO by Jimmy Webb

I can understand how it might be
Kind of hard to love a girl like me
I don't blame you much
For wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
I've loved you better
Than your own kin did
From the very start
And it's my own fault
For what happens to my heart
See I knew you'd always go

But you just do what you gotta do
My wild sweet love
If it should mean I never
Kiss your sweet lips again
Hey there's no mind
Chase that dapple dream of yours
Come on back and see me
When you can

Now I know it makes you sad
Makes you feel so bad
They don't treat you like they should
They got ways to make you feel no good
Though they've got no way to know
Well I've had my eyes wide open
From the very start
And that's the part of you
They'll never get to see
But it's the part you showed to me
 

CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE

CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE by C.Kulukundis/J.Mattsson/D.Ogilvy

I used to see possibility in every smile
But it’s been a while
Since I drew the card that somehow won me you
Guess I’m lucky too
 
Circumstances change
Nothing stays the same
In my dreams I still call your name
But circumstances change
 
Circumstances change
Honeymooners wane
You are still my one true friend
But circumstances change
 
Turn the tables back again
What magic is this?
I meant to walk away
But here I am inviting you in
The years are paper in the fire
What magic is this?
And now you’ve left me mystified
 
You tried to run
That’s just the thing you’ve always done
It’s nothing new
So it’s no surprise
It was so quick to slide
When it all went wrong
