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

LOOKIN' UP

LOOKIN’ UP by Shelby Lynne & Bill Bottrell

Smoking and thinking
Of things to do since you're gone
Sitting, lonely
Can't even get stoned
Taking a breath of a feeling that
Once lived in this house

Laughing and dying
At the mirror in the hall
Talking to myself
A memory don't remember at all
Last thing you told me was the first thing that brought on these clouds
I'm looking up, for the next thing that brings me down

Here comes the jet plane
I can see the wheels hit the ground
However long I wait
I'm standing at the gate, looking round

Walking and crying
Stumble into a church
Starting at the rafters
Wondering how much more I can hurt
Hey old man, what are your plans for me
Where am I bound?
I'm looking up for the next thing that brings me down
I'm looking up for the next thing that brings me down

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE by C.Kulukundis/D.Ogilvy

It’s too little too late
The well it ran dry with the wait
Been too long and I’m tired
And you’re still brittle with pride
Are you gonna wake up before it’s too late?
 
From the outside looking in
So willing to welcome me in
But if hoping made it true
Guess I wouldn’t have done that to you
 
But there was a moment there
A scrap of blue sky
When we might have been more than
Just you and I
I know you’ve been around
You caught your mistake
Just came too little too late
 
So I try to ignore
Push it all to the back of the drawer
‘Til you can look me dead in the eye
And tell me that it’s really goodbye
I’m gonna keep on knocking at your door
 
‘Cos there was a moment there
A scrap of blue sky
When we might have been more than
Just you and 
I know you’ve been around
You made your mistakes
Just came too little too late
 

SUNSHINE IN THE SHADOWS

SUNSHINE IN THE SHADOWS (Traditional)

There’ll be sunshine in the shadows
There’ll be sunshine in the rain
There’ll be sunshine in the shadows
Though my heart is filled with pain
 
And I may be broken hearted
And I know my strength is gone
But there’ll be sunshine, beautiful sunshine
Let the sunshine all day long

TURN YOUR RADIO ON

TURN YOUR RADIO ON by C.Kulukundis/D.Ogilvy

Nothing feels good anymore
You are what my heart beats for
I’m heading North to where I’m known
Through the back roads and the snow
 
You just linger in my mind
Turn your radio on babe
It’s that song we used to play
Hey little darlin’, hey I’m calling

ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK YOUR HEART

ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK YOUR HEART by Neil Young

When you were young and on your own
How did it feel to be alone
I was always thinking
of games that I was playing
Trying to make the best of my time

But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Someone should call him
and see if he can come out
Try to lose the down that he's found

But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart
 

IF I NEEDED YOU

IF I NEEDED YOU by Townes van Zandt
 
If I needed you
Would you come to me
Would you come to me
And ease my pain?
If you needed me
I would come to you
I’d swim the seas
For to ease your pain
 
In the night forlorn
The morning’s born
And the morning shines
With the lights of love
You will miss the sunrise
If you close your eyes
That would break
My heart in two
 
The lady’s with me now
Since I showed her how
To lay her lily white
Hand in mine
Loop and Lil agree
She’s a sight to see
And a treasure for
The poor to find
 
If I needed you
Would you come to me
Would you come to me
For to ease my pain?
If you needed me
I would come to you
I’d swim the seas
For to ease your pain

SAY IT TO ME NOW

SAY IT TO ME NOW by C.Kulukundis/J.Mattsson/J.Robertson/D.Ogilvy

Say it to me now
Say it to me slowly
Like you really know me to be the one
Say it to me hard
Through all the years of waiting
Anticipating the heart
 
Say it to me now
Spell it out
Spell it out for me somehow
Go on and tell me where I stand
 
Say it to me now
Say it in a whisper
Like all the years we’ve missed were
So long and dark
And say it to me now
Though you only half believe it
Just say it like you really mean it
And the rest will come
 
Say it to me now
Spell it out
Spell it out for me somehow
Go on and tell me where I stand
 
Say it to me now
It’s always been
Always been true anyhow
Go on and tell me where I stand
 
I see it in your eyes
Now that I can really hear you
The arrow it went clear through
Brought me to your side

WAITING ON AN ANGEL

WAITING ON AN ANGEL by Ben Harper

Waiting on an angel
One to carry me home
Hope you come to see me soon
‘Cause I don't want to go alone
 
Angel won' t you come by me
Angel hear my plea
Take my hand lift me up
So that I can fly with thee
 
‘Cause I'm waiting on an angel
And I know it won' t be long
To find myself a resting place
In my angel's arms
 
So speak kind to a stranger
‘Cause you never know
It just might be an angel come
Come knocking at your door

KEEP YOUR HEAD

KEEP YOUR HEAD by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

You want to knowAnd I want to tell you
Don’t mean to scare
Or overwhelm you
 
So far so good
But keep paying attention
‘Cos it’s the sixty four
thousand dollar question
 
If you can keep your head
When those around you won’t
If you believe enough, my darlin’
It doesn’t matter if they don’t
There’s sure to be mystery & magic,
And dark disaster too
So you just be the girl you are
And you’ll get through
 
Should circumstance
Conspire against you
Just turn away
And let a new wind take you
 
Don’t hang your head
It’s just not your time
Take a deep breath, my darlin’
You’ll get your turn to shine

If you can keep your head
When those around you won’t
If you believe enough, my darlin’
It doesn’t matter if they don’t
There’s sure to be mystery & magic,
And dark disaster too
So you just be the girl you are
And you’ll get through

If you can keep your head
When those around you won’t
If you believe enough, my darlin’
It doesn’t matter if they don’t
There’s sure to be mystery & magic,And dark disaster too
So you just be the girl you are
And you’ll get through

GIRL, SINKING

GIRL, SINKING by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

Here comes the sun again
And I’m happy to get up and start again
The morning meets me, the world greets me with
Little footsteps overhead
 
But later on the wind starts to blow
there’s a thousand little cracks to let you know
And slowly, surely, though I abhor me,
the paper edges start to curl
 
Then it’s too late and I’m sinking
And there is nothing anyone can do
‘Cos I am one girl, sinking
In a world that’s sinking too,
That’s what it is to be blue
 
Now marvel at the speed of dark
How it rushes to put out every spark
Cold mistrust, like fine coal dust
On everything leaves its mark
 
Minutes pass in reverse
Ground down from blessing to curse
A sideshow wonder d’be mine to conjure
If only I could find the words
 
But it’s too late and I’m sinking
And there is nothing anyone can do
I’m just one girl, sinking
In a world that’s sinking too,
That’s what it is to be blue

STARS BEHIND STARS BEHIND STARS

ROBERTON MOOR

STARS BEHIND STARS BEHIND STARS by C.Kulukundis/P.Bryden/B.Church

Stars behind stars behind stars until there is nothing between them
Just gold behind gold behind gold, all with no end or beginning

The moon throws his ladder down
I climb as best as I can
Down through the wind and the roar
Down to the silence of the sea floor

Rung below rung below rung, caught between fear and believing
As stars behind stars behind stars, promises gently receding

The moon throws his ladder down
I climb as best as I can
Down through the wind and the roar
Down to the silence of the sea floor

Fathom upon fathom upon fathom, restless, led by the tide
Through chasm after chasm after chasm, and there you wait patiently wise

The moon throws his ladder down
I climb as best as I can
Down through the wind and the roar
Down to your sanctuary on the sea floor
 
Stars behind stars behind stars
Stars behind stars behind stars
Stars behind stars behind stars
Stars behind stars behind stars
 
ROBERTON MOOR by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

When shadows grew long and summer was gone
I heard the hawk cry. I remember
The heartache you bore up to Roberton Moor
To Roberton Moor in September
 
And will you remember? Will there come a time
When we walk there together through sweet-scented thyme?
 
So I stood by the road and I watched you go
The sun’s faded glow ‘pon the valley
You were walking away, t’ward you duty and name
Did the wind bear my pain back to you, dear?
 
And will you remember? Will there come a time
When we walk there together through sweet-scented thyme?
 
Now we’re no longer young, and the magic we spun
Should’ve long since unravelled and faded
But I’m still tryin’ to forget, put to sleep the regrets
But they whisper your name to me
 
And will you remember? Will there come a time
When we walk there together through sweet-scented thyme?
 
Well, you’re far away now, in the South safe and sound
With my love buried down in the embers
And there it will burn ‘til one day you return
To Roberton Moor in September.

TOO LONG IN THE COUNTRY

TOO LONG IN THE COUNTRY by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden


Everything is clear in candlelight. Candlelight can seem so bright.
And with your hand curled around mine, we are aligned, and I feel fine.
But then I think I’m gonna let you down, every time, in every town.
‘Cos the rain is coming down, coming down, all around me.
 
And that’s when I hear my old life call
And it’s amazing it should reach me at all
Oh darling, think I’ve been down in the country too long.
 
So throw me a line, make me laugh if you can, for I’ve grown lazy
Just remind me who I am when I began, my memory’s hazy.
The quiet life is good, with you and time dove-tailing.
But I think I might be slipping by, untied, on the River Avon.
 
And that’s when I hear my old life call
And it’s amazing it should reach me at all.
Oh darling, think I’ve been down in the country too long.

THE BITTEREST LIE

THE BITTEREST LIE by D.Ogilvy/B.Brierley

She was born on the right side of the tracks 
that much I know it is true
her daddy got drunk and he gambled
mama held together with glue
 
home is where the heart is
but it was built on the thinnest disguise
but she could not be certain if the things that she said
were the truth or the bitterest lies
 
the children she bore all shivered with cold
and watched as their love she did steal
they could not leave home for their strength was all gone
anyway the locks were real
 
home is where the heart is
but it was built on the thinnest disguise
but she could not be certain if the things that she said
were the truth or the bitterest lies

something inside her was breaking in two
was it the devil who was giving her the eye?
 
But she could not be certain if the things that he said
Were the truth or the bitterest lie
But she could not be certain if the things that he said
Were the truth or the bitterest lie
Were the truth or the bitterest lie
 
 

BLOOM

ON DEODAR ROAD

ON DEODAR ROAD by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

I am packing my beautiful things all away
Boxing up promises made yesterday
With their buttons still missing and collars still frayed
My plans for their mending delayed
 
All those big ideas that rained down in my mind
They numbered from 1 to 109
My wild inspiration, untested untried
The dark too unbridgeably wide
 
Each thing that I do in this house Ive called home
I do for the last time for I have outgrown
These four walls that sheltered my burgeoning heart
And watched as I wandered apart
 
I’d hoped to untangle the worst of my fears
Before letting the weeks and months turn to years
And though I am stronger undoubtedly so
I pack up the answers…so I’ll never know
BLOOM by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

Bloom where you’re planted
That’s what she said to me
Laid her hand on my shoulder
Then let me be
 
Bloom where you’re planted
Hearts have broken over less
Things have a way of changing
Never know just what you’ll get
 
Bloom where you’re planted
I don’t ever wanna grow old
No this isn’t how I planned it
Lying here with hearts grown cold
 
Bloom where you’re planted
Build a bridge from your soul
Then pull together
Like they did in days of old
 
Bloom where you’re planted
make the most of what you find
before the final curtain
closes on your tired mind
 
Bloom where you’re planted
That’s all she said
No greener grasses
Are gonna bring you happiness
…Won’t bring you no happiness
 

THE BITTEREST LIE

DISTANT MUSIC

DISTANT MUSIC by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

In all kinds of weather I
See you ‘neath the open sky
Head down and your heart in two
 
You’re always walking roads
With your strange and heavy load
And I wonder, are you ever going home again?
 
That distant music
Going round and round your head
Sweet dark music
Its never gonna let you rest
 
People they are wary
Prefer you ordinary
But your eyes, they give you away
 
You are bright, sharp fury
You are judge and jury
And we are all caught in the fray
 
That distant music
Going round and round your head
sweet dark music
Its never gonna let you rest
 
So the lonely road
Your strange and heavy load
Are what we have come to expect
 
And one time in ten you
Smile and wave as we pass through
But I know, you’re gonna hear it call again
 
That distant music
Going round and round your head
Sweet dark music
Its never gonna let you rest
Its never gonna let you rest 

BIG BABY BLUES

BIG BABY BLUES by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

When did my baby grow up into you?
Everything’s altered but those big baby blues
When I hear you talking it feels like a dream
Of a life that I longed for but thought I’d never see
 
I used to hear whispers deep in the night
Long after the dance floor was empty and bright
Reaching through my loneliness sharp as a knife
Your sweet voice a remedy bringing the light
 
How long you will you stay, dear? There’s no way to know
And no way to soften the wrench when you go
So when I catch sight of your beautiful soul
I store every detail for when I am old
 
So when did my baby grow up into you?
I’m overtaken and there’s nothing I can do
When I hear you laughing, darling, warm and true
I’m so happy I could float away into the blue
I’m so happy I could float away into the blue
 

SWEET FRUIT

CAMBERWELL BEAUTY

SWEET FRUIT by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

Every time I look at my watch
Another minute’s gone by
And then an hour and then a day
The week goes flying by
 
Soon a month will all be done
And then another one through
And so the years, like all my tears,
gone dry and dusty too
 
Blink an eye, 10 years gone by
And then before you know
I’ll be clocking off on my last day
And in the ground I’ll go
 
Yes, in the ground I’ll go, my friend
But ideas live forever
They keep on growing while you sleep
And bear sweet fruit forever
 
CAMBERWELL BEAUTY by C.Kulukundis/B.Church/P.Bryden

It must have been Thursday last
Another day much like the last
And every face worn down low
 
And I was just one of a thousand
That life’s magic and mystery had abandoned
And the hours passed achingly slow
Oh no
 
And then there you were in your vintage fur
A jubilation, a constellation, a dazzling whir
For all to see, the Camberwell Beauty
 
You needed to see it to believe
But it rivalled old Moses’ trick with the sea
And you were so beautiful and free
free
 
If people are born not made
Then many are born and stay so afraid
But not you, you wash all that away
away
 
And then there you were in your vintage fur
A jubilation, a constellation, a dazzling whir
For all to see, the Camberwell beauty
 
Long may you reign over all you see…
 

CAMBERWELL BEAUTY
