Here’s To You

(Findlay/Morley)

 

On another highway, heading out of town

Searching for a reason I can’t find

We’d be down on our luck

But we’d always talk it out

Down at the bar on a Saturday night

 

Well I always thought I’d see your face again

And I can’t deny it’s so hard to understand

I can’t believe you're leaving

And this is how your story ends

As I say goodbye, it’s here’s to you my friend

 

Sweeping through the hallway the sunlight streaming in

When I took the call I couldn’t work it out

Try to see it your way but it’s tough to comprehend

You made such a difference to so many men

 

Well, I always thought I’d see your face again

And I never got to thank you for all you did

I’ll see you when I’m dreaming

But if I have to wait till then

I’m gonna raise my glass singing here’s to you my friend

 

When I remember the good times that we had

How can I be unhappy even if I’m sad?

 

‘Cos I always thought I’d see your face again

And I never got to thank you for all you did

I’ll see you when I’m dreaming but if I have to wait till then

I’m gonna raise my glass singing here’s to you my friend

Here’s to you my friend

Here’s to you my friend

To Liam,

Thanks for all you did...

Just A Woman - (feat. Danny Bowes)

(Findlay/Morley)

 

If you’re wondering why I keep my distance

Baby, when the lights are low

I can tell you're feeling my resistance and I guess it’s time to let you know

 

You’ve got something boy I can’t deny it, but I’ve seen my share of pain

I’ve been wronged and though I don’t regret it

I don’t wanna go there again

 

I might not be the one, but how could I do you wrong?

When I feel it so strong

 

Don’t get me wrong it’s not that I don’t trust you

But one thing we gotta understand

Nothing’s gonna stop the full moon rising

‘Cos I’m just a woman and you’re just a man

Yeah, I’m a woman and you’re just a man

 

I don’t want you feeling under pressure, but I’m not gonna lie to you

It’s hard to hide it when the sparks are flying

And I know that you can feel it too

 

Maybe you’re not the one, but I don’t wanna get this wrong

But I feel it so strong

 

I only ever wanna see you laughing

I only wanna do the best I can

But I can’t promise you there won’t be trouble

‘Cos you’re just a woman and I’m just a man

 

If I ever make you feel like crying

I don’t wanna cause you hurt or pain

We’re only human with the same affliction

I’m just a woman and I’m just a man

 

People talking about the way it should be and it’s beyond belief

Is that how it’s meant to be?

Just be a man to me

 

Maybe you’re not the one and I don’t wanna get this wrong

When I feel it so strong

 

I only ever wanna see you laughing

I only wanna do the best I can

But I can’t promise you there won’t be trouble

‘Cos I’m just a woman and I’m just a man

 

If I ever make you feel like crying

I don’t wanna cause you hurt or pain

We’re only human with the same affliction

I’m just a woman and I’m just a man

Yeah, I’m a woman and I’m just a man

I’m just a woman

The Island

(Findlay)

 

A solo mission was never part of the plan

Home again will never be home again

The tide has turned this road into an end

We know the truth and I never could pretend

 

Dissolution of a promise

The final curtain falls upon this

Set it free, let it fall down

Let it bleed into the night and watch it burn out in the sun                                     

Take it to the island that is furthest from your heart

Lay it down to rest and go right back to the start

And just be

 

I will labour to keep them from coming undone

As we revoke the vows we'd written into their blood

 

Listen to the sons and daughters

Ever bridging broken waters

 

Set it free, let it fall down

Let it bleed into the night and watch it burn out in the sun                                     

Take it to the island that is furthest from your heart

Lay it down to rest and go right back to the start

And just be

Just be

And just be

Just be

Face In The Sun

(Findlay/Morley)

 

Ooh, I saw you facing the sun

Healing scars of broken love

Close your eyes let go of the reins

Far above our worldly plane

 

Om Namah Shivaya

Ahh ah ah ah

Om Namah Shivaya

 

When I see your face in the sun shadows run

Open my eyes to a love I can feel

Far beyond all that I thought was real

 

Om Namah Shivaya

Ahh ah ah ah

Om Namah Shivaya

 

Ooh, I saw your face in the sun

Burning golden love

Mmmm dancing long till the end of the song

Of the soul we are one

 

Om Namah Shivaya

Ahh ah ah ah

Om Namah Shivaya

 

Om Namah Shivaya

Ahh ah ah ah

Om Namah Shivaya

Southern Shores

(Findlay)

 

Across the waves I hear you call

From the firing range, yeah like the lion’s roar

Turning up the heat on the sanguine shores of Mexico

 

With a force you spit the news like fire, like rain

But I don't belong to you, go wrestle your own soul

There's a butterfly calling, calling me home

 

Love, will you be there, delivering final truths?

While fortune and fame grace the chosen who remain among the few

 

Every day you don't let go with those serpent like teeth, yeah

Hissing as you go, digging in your heels

Just like a spoilt teenage overload

 

When daylight splits the scene

Every word, every threat torments your every dream

It's written in stone

Will you remember the day they told you, told you so?

 

Love, will you be there, delivering final truths?

While fortune and fame grace the chosen who remain among the few

 

Love, will you be there, remedying misspent youth?

When the colour they bleed, is the same no matter how they choose

Oh, well it’s killing you

I Remember

(Findlay)

 

I remember you, horse, racing waves across the beach

I remember the stars only just out of reach

 

I remember the ways losing time across shores

I remember our dreams, our little boat without oars

 

I remember the days, chasing sun across fields

I remember your hand on my face, how it feels

 

I remember those nights, burning long afternoons

I remember your voice and how we kissed the full moon

 

Oh, the tide has moved out now

Many sails have been torn

But no traveller is he who yesterday mourns

 

Still I remember the days singing only for you

I remember the ways opening up to the truth

 

I remember your words like a blade across my skin

I remember the tears and how they tore from within

 

Oh, the time has moved on now

Many seeds have been sown

And the answers that we seek whisper to silence alone

 

Though the Sun has gone down now

And many leaves will surely fall

Old endings shall offer themselves to the dawn

 

Oh, the sky has grown dark now

Many shadows will run

But no dreamer will sleep until battles are won

Wild White Horses

(Findlay/Morley)

 

I feel the river running through me to heed the calling of the sea

I hear a whisper from the ocean

Do you remember me?

 

The rising tides of distant passion

Crashing waves upon the shore

The towering wall of my resistance tumbles to the floor, to the floor

 

I will return

Someday we’ll chase the moon into the sun

And on that sacred dawn we’ll see wild white horses running free

 

When every question has no answer

When every moment brings a trial

When every glass you fill’s half empty think of me and smile

 

‘Cos I will return

To the beach where the midnight fires burn

And far beyond the flames we’ll see wild white horses running free

 

I feel the river running through me

Do I heed the caution or retreat?

I hear a whisper from the ocean

Do you remember me?

Ohhh!

 

I will return

Someday we’ll chase the moon into the sun

And on that sacred dawn we’ll see wild white horses running free

 

Wanna watch them running free

Wanna watch them running free

Running, running free

Wild white horses ride

From the dark

Into the light

Winner

(Findlay/Morley)

 

Heartbeat, rush, heat

Burn, fire, desire

 

We don’t have to be right

 

Sworn love, born sons

Flame burns, love hurts

 

We don’t have to be right

We are on the same side

 

I don’t care what you do or what you say

It don’t matter who you blame

One hollow victory’s not worth the price we’d pay

‘Cos there’s no winner in this game

In this game

 

Heartbeat, rush, heat

Burn, fire, flame dies

 

We don’t have to be right

We are on the same side

 

And I don’t care what you do, or what you say

Makes no difference who’s to blame

One empty victory’s not worth

The price we’d pay

There’s no winner in this game

 

Na na na na na

Na na na na...

 

We don’t have to be right

We are on the same side

 

And I don’t care what you do, or what you say

Makes no difference who’s to blame

One empty victory’s not worth

The price we’d pay

There’s no winner in this game

Na na na na na

Na na na na...

Already Free

(Findlay)

 

Over mountains, through crystalline streams made it this far

Fortune is a tall ship at sea sailing by one star

 

Standing on that bridge so long

Wondering which way is home

 

Oh, the higher that we go when that storm rolls in

We can soar like an eagle, ‘cos we're already free

 

Wanted by that ocean in me, taking life by storm

Made a believer of me, who would have thought?

 

Tell me, how long can this roll on, if I don't write this song?

 

Oh, the higher that we go when that storm rolls in

We can soar like an eagle, ‘cos we're already free

Yes, we're already free

 

You know that it's gonna take some time

You don't have to worry just, spread your wings and glide

 

Tell me, how long can this roll on, if I don't write this song?

It’s gonna have to die with me, love

Then the message is lost

 

Follow the way of the eagle we'll fly above the peaks, yeah

Baby, just flow like a river ‘cos you're already free

Yes, we're already free

‘Cos we’re already free

Cactus

(Findlay)

 

With the whip of a comet's tail I went blazing leagues across the sand

Found myself a burning man with a far out look in his hand

 

With a sip of the cactus brew I was blooming, flaming crimson red

Dancing to some star seed band with tomorrow eyes in my head

 

God, I was only looking to put the smile back on my face

But into the brew tripped on life's avenue

Now the world's a different place

 

Ba-ba-ba-ba, open your heart to the sun

Ba-ba-ba-ba, kick up the dust, come undone

 

A brush with a desert storm in a dust cloud of thinkers out of the box

Lovers and creators all just citizens of Black Rock

God, I was only looking to put the smile back on my face

Someone said, 'Do you sing? Mariachi will swing'

Now the world's a peculiar place

 

Ba-ba-ba-ba, open your heart kiss the sun

Ba-ba-ba-ba, love in the dust come undone

 

To the laughing cuervo, listen ‘cos he knows that dawn begins to crack

When you shake the sand from your pockets ‘cos what's given you'll always get back

 

With the whip of a comet's tail I went blazing leagues across the sand

Found myself a burning man with a far out look in his hand

 

God, I was only looking to put the smile back on my face

But out of the blue, seems I jumped up the queue

Now the world's a different place

 

Ba-ba-ba-ba open your heart, kiss the sun

Ba-ba-ba-ba dance to your truth, come undone

Firefly

(Findlay/Morley)

 

Firefly, it would be wrong to hold on

Although you must fly on

You’ll not leave here without all my love

 

It’s time for you to go home

She’s calling you back through the stars

Into the wind you go

Back to her arms

Back to her arms

 

Firefly, go back where you belong

Follow lights...

No, I’ll not keep you long

I know that we need to be strong

 

It’s time for you to go home

She’s calling you back through the twilight

Into the wind you go

Back to her arms

Back to her arms

 

So let go of me, but in your heart, hold me

Fly, firefly

Love me, still love me and darling see how we shine….

Firefly

 

It’s time for you to go home

She’s calling you back through the stars

Into the wind you go…

 

It’s time for you to go home

She’s calling you back through the twilight

Upon wings aglow, back to her arms

Back to her arms

Mmmm

For Jenny...

Forget the Rain

(Findlay/Morley)

 

Look into my eyes, don’t you recognise me?

That storm across your mind, you can no longer hide it

 

I don’t want to cry, but I'm holding back a river

It’s impossible to lie, keeping so much inside

 

Laying here without you

Still wrapped up in the times

We merged into the stars so can’t we

 

Forget the rain tonight?

Forget the rain tonight

Mmm mmm

 

Darling, know that I still sing to you each night

I look towards the sky, pray that everything will be fine

 

It couldn't get much better

Than dancing in your arms

I know we could be together if we

 

Forget the rain tonight

Forget the rain tonight

 

No, don't worry ‘bout the weather outside

Forget the rain tonight

 

When the misty morning sun bathes us in his light

Feel the heavens smiling, everything’s gonna be alright

We'll fly above the clouds and leave it all behind

So don't you worry about the weather tonight

 

Doesn't get much better

Than waking in your arms

I know we can rise in love if we just

 

Forget the rain tonight

Forget the rain tonight

No, don’t worry about the weather outside

Forget the rain tonight

Forget the rain

Oh, forget the rain tonight

Tonight
