about

Greg Murray and The Shed Band Ros Comain, Ireland

Greg Murray finds a way of telling his tales through his songs with love, forgiveness and a bit of wry humour. Wistful tales, like anecdotes in sepia, paint pictures of the people he has known and his life and times here in this world. Moments that are rich and meaningful, harmonies that are of the earth and stars. Come into the garden, and be a part of the landscape that he has created. ... more

Track Name: Body And Blood
More beautiful, more beautiful than ever
Your lethal grin has lured me in for the kill
Your innocence, your experience of nothing
Make something of yourself seeing as we’re all coming clean
Your mother doesn’t want you working your days on a machine

Body and blood is all we’ve gotta love it’s a simple thing
The years slip by and it’s only a dream that you thought you had
But living is not dreaming and hearts are not beating
Til you tell the one you love I love you

You left your town you were the brightest in your year
To live your dreams but your mother said to be careful
The same old story the boy meets girl you could act it yourself
But boy loses girl and boy loses everything
It’ll never be the same til you know it happens to you

Body and blood is all we’ve gotta love it’s a simple thing
The years slip by and it’s only a dream that you thought you had
But living is not dreaming and hearts are not beating
Til you tell the one you love I love you

Body and blood is all we’ve gotta love it’s a simple thing
The years slip by and it’s only a dream that you thought you had
But living is not dreaming and hearts are not beating
Til you tell the one you love I love you

Body and blood is all we’ve gotta love it’s a simple thing
The years slip by and it’s only a dream that you thought you had
But living is not dreaming and hearts are not beating
Til you tell the one you love I love you
Track Name: Catch Your Falling Star
Catch your star it’s the one thing that’ll make you
Realise what you have and where it’ll get you
God’ll only know where it’ll take you
The place you wannna go whose arms’ll hold you
It’s at home

You catch your falling star at night your opportunity is right for the taking when the stars align alright
And the heavens open up their doors the gates to the upper floors of your kingdom where your angel’s voices soar

Appreciate the efforts that they’ve gone to
Nod in unison to the madness
The angels see the world before we're in it
Up to our eyes in shit is how we’ve made it
It’s our home

You catch your falling star at night your opportunity is right for the taking when the stars align alright
And the heavens open up their doors the gates to the upper floors of your kingdom where your angel’s voices soar

You catch your falling star at night your opportunity is right for the taking when the stars align alright
Track Name: Do You Realise?
I can see / you / were way past forgiving
There was something unusual here
So I caught a glimpse / of what was going on
If you would catch your breath / to let me explain

There were three of them / all looking suspicious
A little disturbing / a little unsure
(Do you / realise?) x 2

So their get up / was a little unusual
Their accents / gave them away
And what their mothers and fathers / don’t realize
Is their path they chose for themselves

There were three of them / all looking suspicious
A little disturbing / a little unsure
(Do you / realise?) x 4

There were three of them / all looking suspicious
A little disturbing / a little unsure
(Do you / realise?) x 3
Track Name: Grind To A Stop
Grind to a stop we need a breather
Mind the step and watch your head
The old folks dance we’ve lost the art of dancing
And the youngsters play at being grown up
The same photographs of tougher stuff

And we’d stay in town if there was work to stay for
And we’d stay in town if we had someone to stay for
Fortune favours the simple and simple is what we do well
Famous story-tellers their demons are from hell

Hold on to your hat the storm is brewing
Let it go at that we’re always fighting
Sit for a while we’ve lost the art of talking
And the youngsters play at being grown up
The same photographs of tougher stuff

And we’d stay in town if there was work to stay for
And we’d stay in town if we had someone to stay for
Fortune favours the simple and simple is what we do well
Famous story-tellers their demons are from hell

And the youngsters play at being grown up
The same photographs of tougher stuff
And we’d stay in town if there was work to stay for
And we’d stay in town if we had someone to stay for
Fortune favours the simple and simple is what we do well
Famous story-tellers their demons are from hell
Fortune, fortune, fortune
Track Name: Let It Show
I bet you thought you’d seen the back of me
I bet you thought / you’d seen it all
With every turn of the page / I’ll be with you
With every turn of phrase / I’ll be behind you

We never had a chance at it / from the start
We never could agree on anything / it tore us apart

You know I’ve turned down a fortune / I’m living here without so much a shoestring
And after all we’ve been through together / let it show

You never lived up to expectations / a solid job as a teacher
I never made it to the summit / I never took to well to the friend thing

We never had a chance at it / from the start
We never could agree on anything / it tore us apart

You know I’ve turned down a fortune / I’m living here without so much a shoestring
And after all we’ve been through together / let it show
And how is it gonna be a lot better
You tell the children we’ll make it together
And after all we’ve been through / let it show

You know I’ve turned down a fortune / I’m living here without so much a shoestring
And after all we’ve been through together / let it show
And how is it gonna be a lot better
You tell the children we’ll make it together
And after all we’ve been through / let it show
Track Name: New Year Song
If you are the sun then I’ll be the shade for you
If you are the one then I’ll take the blame for you
Heaven and hell won’t be the place for you
Son of a gun won’t help us along

I do declare the new year is dawning
Watch for the sky they’ll be here in the morning
Let’s hear the cry the heavens’ll open
Let’s see if we can belong

And so you’ve begun the journey has started
They promised you it it would be easier
But life’s little hurts never come easy
The fruits of your labour hard though they’re earned

I do declare the new year is dawning
Watch for the sky they’ll be here in the morning
Let’s hear the cry the heavens’ll open
Let’s see if we can belong

I do declare the new year is dawning
Watch for the sky they’ll be here in the morning
Let’s hear the cry the heavens’ll open
Let’s see if we can belong

I do declare the new year is dawning
Watch for the sky they’ll be here in the morning
Let’s hear the cry the heavens’ll open
Let’s see if we can belong

I do declare the new year is dawning
Watch for the sky they’ll be here in the morning
Let’s hear the cry the heavens’ll open
Let’s see if we can belong
Track Name: No Pretending
A single year to the day
It feels just like yesterday
People get all sentimental
It makes you think and it makes you angry
Try though your head’s astray
Clothes that don’t fit you anyway
Smiles are complimentary
Tears are never far away

You’re on aeroplane
The beautiful stewardess
And other passengers
The children play
Pestering mothers
Their screams were so harrowing

The captain’s voice
Soothes the spirit
Pray there’s no suffering
The fathers mourn
Their hearts are torn
Baggage strewn everywhere

And you won’t wait
You’re in no state
There’s no pretending
Track Name: Too Long In The Sun
We could have danced til the morning came up
Spirit the body God at his worst

The devil called out he said you were a curse
He said end your life make it look like an accident
The spirit of the Holy Ghost will save our souls
Have faith in the light have faith in what you’ve done

Ah

We duelled with some pistols we duelled with swords
The righteous among us prayed for all their worth
And the priests did what they could the cardinals swore
Their allegiance to God their loyalty some more
Track Name: You Are Something Else
I’ve seen it all before / you have all the signs
You haven’t left long to live / I would close all the blinds
No point in getting all worked up / there’ll be plenty of time for that
Offer it up to the Holy Ghost / to see what he knows

But you are something else / you’ll make it through
When / you can’t face it there’s nothing new
Nothing new

Just to get up in the morning / takes everything you’ve got
You think they’re talking about you / they haven’t a care in the world
And the voice in your head / keep you guessing who you are

But you are something else / you’ll make it through
When / you can’t face it there’s nothing new
Nothing new
But you are something else / you’ll make it through
When / you can’t face it there’s nothing new
Nothing new
Track Name: Your Little Light
A change could do you good
The bends submerged good
Alot a good the lesson did you
Scared to know where to turn
Turn to me I’ll say
You should’ve made the plan a little easier

And your little light you’ll let it shine
Oh yeah we’ll let it shine
Oh no you’re the light inside of me
So run for your life you know they’ll catch you
Oh yeah you’ll be free
Oh no you’re the light inside of me

Could you show me to live
Self taught myself
I never read the safety instructions
She was up to no good
Me because I could
Making up stories and spreading ‘em

And your little light you’ll let it shine
Oh yeah we’ll let it shine
Oh no you’re the light inside of me
So run for your life you know they’ll catch you
Oh yeah you’ll be free
Oh no you’re the light inside of me

And your little light you’ll let it shine
Oh yeah we’ll let it shine
Oh no you’re the light inside of me
So run for your life you know they’ll catch you
Oh yeah you’ll be free
Oh no you’re the light inside of me
Track Name: Stop The Clocks
Stop the clocks / cover the mirrors
Take what works / and let them go
And when the demons / need their ransom
They won’t leave us the / way they found us
The centre of / your universe
The bain of / whatever’s worse

Whatever hell you’re used to /it’s not as if I’ve been there before
Whatever you want me to tell you
They couldn’t leave us / to handle the pain
They wouldn’t let us alone again

And you learn / humility
Like it burns / to the bone
And if they learn / of your weakness
Pray you make it to the end
They take a layer / of your existence
They put you through it / everyday

Whatever hell you’re used to /it’s not as if I’ve been there before
Whatever you want me to tell you
They couldn’t leave us / to handle the pain
They couldn’t trust us / it’s not the same
They wouldn’t let us alone again
Whatever hell you’re used to /it’s not as if I’ve been there before
Whatever you want me to tell you
They couldn’t leave us / to handle the pain
They couldn’t trust us / it’s not the same
They couldn’t leave us / to handle the pain
They wouldn’t let us alone again
Track Name: Turn The Screw
You were so invincible made it look so incredible
Take the long road round enjoy the view
We almost made it clean like a fairytale ending
Except for one last thing we were a little green
But we were not alone

Gather what you’d call your own
Head right on back to your home

To turn the screw
You knew what to do
I was winded up way too tight
Pressed release you knew what to do
When I seen you
In an instant
Pictures of the times I’d been with you
Came flooding back like a wave
It carried us
But we were not alone

Gather what you’d call your own
Head right on back to your home
Gather what you’d call your own

But we were not alone
Somebody will size you up
Turn the screw you won’t see it coming to you
Sometimes it’ll wash over you
Clearing the way for you like tomorrow
Somebody will size you up
Turn the screw you won’t see it coming to you
Gather what you’d call your own
Head right on back to your home
Track Name: Let Out
Some say you’re the fallen angel
You’ve had your fill of death
You’ve lived to tell the tale
Gone as far as you can go
How was I to know?

Now / Now that you can
Be here with me / You can shout it
If / If you’re caught out
It will soon be here
You can vouch for it

Try to make the light go out
It’s after you you know
Make up the dream it’s unreal
Wake up to the stereo
It’s no one I know

Now / Now that you can
Be here with me / You can shout it
If / If you’re caught out
It will soon be here
You can vouch for it

Now / Now that you can
Be here with me / You can shout it
If / If you’re caught out
It will soon be here
You can vouch for it
Track Name: There's No One
I / could welcome the devil and his aids
For you / I’d offer the dinner plate
Save / the saints and the sinners here
In all / there’s nowhere left for us / to go
But there’s everyone to save
And there’s no one to care / and there’s no one

So / it’s time to head out on the road
To make / something out of ourselves
It won’t be long / they’ll / show themselves to you
For their true / colours reveal to you
But there’s everyone to save
And there’s no one / to care / and there’s no one

(You – waited – you - oh) x 2

The sun / rises on everyone / today / a new start has just begun
Invisible to the human eye / til the microscope reveals their presence
And there’s everyone to save
And there’s no one / to care / and there’s no one

(You – waited – you - oh) x 2 to fade out
Track Name: Already Gone
Catholic John / You led him on
Making up / Then carrying on
Stabbing his heart with a broken bottle
Taking his life before he could get started

You were / Already / Gone
You were / Already / Gone

In his life / Troubled parents
Thrown out / Of university
Alcoholic mother and father
A side show freak with permanent achne

You were / Already / Gone
You were / Already / Gone
You were / Already / Gone
You were / Already / Gone

You are Catholic
You are sainted
Pray to God your religion is strong
You are Catholic
You are sainted
Pray to God your religion is strong
Track Name: Up, Up And Away
When you say / they’ll return
You’re not the most persuasive of people / I’ve ever seen
So I’m up for / a little investigating
Just to find out for myself / what the hell went on here

Up, up and away / in my beautiful pending doom
Before the dust settles / before we pay the consequences

And they had / the best people
The very foundations did shake / they would feel it for years to come

Up, up and away / in my beautiful pending doom
Before the dust settles / before we pay the consequences

Up, up and away / in my beautiful pending doom
Before the dust settles / before we pay the consequences

The same goes for us / they can make a statue for us
If they want to / something to remember us by
Track Name: The Best Years Of Your Life
Sometimes I am miles away
Caught up in a world away
It’s hard
Day dreaming is good for you
Let me show what to do
It’s easy
Just plug it in and there you go
It’s right back at ya
You know it, so you give up
So if you tell them who you are
They’ll make you feel like you’re a star
And that’s the beginning

But when you’ve gotten used to them
You’re part of the bigger picture when
They shit on you
And you fought for them
Given them
The best years of your life
And your family’s no sympathy
For the time spent away from them
They shit on you

Suicide in a BMW
Family’s devastated
So are you
In 30 years unholidayed
17 you’ve been underpaid
But not a word said
Your pension’s here
Your health is not
One in three is such a lot
For a statistic
So when you come to the pearly gates
Tell them that your greatest love
Was your children

But when you’ve gotten used to them
You’re part of the bigger picture when
They shit on you
And you fought for them
Given them
The best years of your life
And your family’s no sympathy
For the time spent away from them
And you fought for them
Given them
The best years of your life
And your family’s no sympathy
For the time spent away from them
They shit on you

But when you’ve gotten used to them
You’re part of the bigger picture when
They shit on you
And you fought for them
Given them
The best years of your life
And your family’s no sympathy
For the time spent away from them
They shit on you
And you fought for them
Given them
The best years of your life
And your family’s no sympathy
For the time spent away from them
And you fought for them
Given them / the best years of your life
And your family’s no sympathy
For the time spent away from them
And you fought for them
Given them
The best years of your life
And your family’s no sympathy
For the time spent away from them
They shit on you
Track Name: The Second Coming
So you thought you’d spoil it all / the place we had
Wasn’t long on the market / we thought we knew it all
Thought we knew about / the heartache
Then it hit us all of a sudden / after the honeymoon

You had God on your side / I had the sun in my eyes
You had demons praying /and the angels by your side
The second coming / we died tonight
We rise /with trumpets blast

We never thought about the past / and what we’ve been through
It was nobody else’s fault / this lie we led / it was all in our head
But we had next to nothing / nothing to fight over

You had God on your side / I had the sun in my eyes
You had demons praying /and the angels by your side
The second coming / we died tonight
We rise /with trumpets blast

You had God on your side / I had the sun in my eyes
You had demons praying /and the angels by your side
The second coming / we died tonight
We rise /with trumpets blast
You had God on your side / I had the sun in my eyes
You had demons praying /and the angels by your side
The second coming / we died tonight
We rise /with trumpets blast
Track Name: Scars
I’d use you / black’n’white and colouring
Somebody said / you’re game for anything past caring
Scared on the surface / fractured on the inside and incomplete
You can be on my team / it’s not what you see that matters

It’s not what you think / I haven’t had a drink today
Be still til I finish / and listen to what I say

If I were you / I’d get out of here / nobody wants you here
Look what you’ve started / that’s real big hearted of you
The devil knows you’re good for it / the angels misunderstood and you

It’s not what you think / I haven’t had a drink today
Be still til I finish / and now listen to what I say

For ten years I’ve left / my scars on you
I’m sorry / if I’ve been a burden on you

It’s not what you think / I haven’t had a drink today
Be still til I finish / and now listen to what I say
For ten years I’ve left / my scars on you
I’m sorry / if I’ve been a burden on you
Track Name: Landslide
We’re on the same side / you’re acting like a landslide
There’s someone on the outside / just wanting to get in
So tune in / for God’s sake let her win
You’ll never hear the end of it / in a million years

So you’ve been saved / like the sinners enslaved
Sincerity, sincerity
From the Gospel’s word / I followed them sound
I’m falling down / falling down

We’ve never hurt so much / the pain’s unbearable
For a drop of water I pray / to touch my tongue
To be a holy man / I should have started over again
I know I’ll come back again / as a cockroach

So you’ve been saved / like the sinners enslaved
Sincerity, sincerity
From the Gospel’s word / I followed them sound
I’m falling down / falling down
Track Name: Rumour
You know the Smiths song, ‘Girlfriend in a Coma’ which is alleged to be about the break up of the band…well this is my version of that song on a personal level. The honeymoon period is over and the reality of love and compromise is a hard pill to swallow especially as the sacrifice is so great. We will all experience great loss in this life of one form or another but you must never prepare for it - for that will only harden you for heart.
Track Name: Son, This Party's Over
Look sharp / for they look sharp / make a mark / for they’ll make a mark on you
Take a chance / they’ll take a chance / make it big / they’ll make it big off you

You build / the house for two
You work your life for someone else
And what / have you got to show
What you’ve got to bring / to the party
And son / this party’s over / let’s go home

When you’re gone / they’ll still be here
You’ll be wrong / and they’ll be here / smiling
No time / to feel your way / play by ear / in yesteryear is obsolete

You build / the house for two
You work your life for someone else
And what / have you got to show
What you’ve got to bring / to the party
And son / this party’s over / let’s go home

You build / the house for two
You work your life for someone else
And what / have you got to show
What you’ve got to bring / to the party
And son / this party’s over / let’s go home
Track Name: Couldn't Give Him
You came up from the river / you were washing on the shore
Don’t listen to the stories they tell you / don’t listen no more
Keep an eye on your close friends / keep your enemies at the door
Keep them waiting til the morning / they’re not important anymore
And they tell you what you want to hear / and they tell you how they’ve come to be
A little part of satisfaction / they’re not taking over me

And you’re looking at the diehard / appearing at the drive-in
He only wanted a little dignity / couldn’t give him what he wanted to see

Take a look at your own self / list your faults if you can
There’s not a soul who wouldn’t have given up / there’s not a stronger man
I’ll never forget the sound of it / we never would have got this far
With all the help you could muster / couldn’t stop a falling star

And you’re looking at the diehard / appearing at the drive-in
He only wanted a little dignity / couldn’t give him what he wanted to see

And you’re looking at the diehard / appearing at the drive-in
He only wanted a little dignity / couldn’t give him what he wanted to see

And you’re looking at the diehard / appearing at the drive-in
He only wanted a little dignity / couldn’t give him what he wanted to see

And you’re looking at the diehard / appearing at the drive-in
He only wanted a little dignity / couldn’t give him what he wanted to see


And you’re looking at the diehard / appearing at the drive-in
He only wanted a little dignity / couldn’t give him what he wanted to see
Track Name: Prizes For Everyone
You’re loving her / as much as you can
She’s beautiful / she’s light in your hands
Light in your hands
You’re all she’s got / like it or not
She’s eventual / she’s something your not
Something your not
She compliments / you ridicule
She’s just a fool / she’s looking at you
Looking at you

Making sure you’ve found just what it’s for
Cheated into believing it’s your
Personality she’ll tell ya what for

Felt so real sure / the pattern shot
Real positive / you’re all that I’ve got
All that I’ve got
The sentiment / impassionate / this stupid fool
Looking at you / looking at you

Making sure you’ve found just what it’s for
Cheated into believing it’s your
Personality she’ll tell ya what for
Prizes for everyone who guesses it
She loves her dancing just a bit
She makes you look like an ass on the floor

Making sure you’ve found just what it’s for

Personality she’ll tell ya what for
Prizes for everyone who guesses it

Prizes for everyone who guesses it
She loves her dancing just a bit

She makes you look like an ass on the floor
Track Name: Too Bright For Sunshine
You’re so bright / I’ve gotta wear shades
You’re / so right / I was born in a haze of the summer / of 69
You’re too cool / for your own good
You’re / far too good at everything / it comes natural / every time

You’re too bright / for the sunshine
And you’re someone else tonight

Hip hip horray / the witch is dead
Say my name / it’s easier / said in vain
Like a sinner / save my soul
Sinking feelings / get used to them / and you hear
The people who / can never appear to try and hurt you
Though you try

You’re too bright / for the sunshine
And you’re someone else tonight
And the life you take / the heartache
For the demons / to possess

You’re too bright / for the sunshine
And you’re someone else tonight
And the life you take / the heartache
For the demons / to possess

You’re too bright / for the sunshine
And you’re someone else tonight
Track Name: Take It To Her
I haven’t see the world today
I haven’t heard the song bird’s song
And it’s a shame / and it’s a shame
I feel as if I’m someone else
I feel as if I’m a hurtling train
But / it’s okay / it’s okay

The fences you put up / are all overgrown
The years have done their worst
The winter has returned
And you’re gone / and you’re gone

In a minute / it’ll all be ended
Take it to her / take it to her
For the boxer / the solitude is over
Waited so long / waited so long

And if you think you’ve found your place
If you think you’ve got it made
It’s such a waste / it’s such a waste
And you still feel empty inside
You still feel a little disgrace
It’s / on your mind / it’s on your mind

(The fences you put up / are all overgrown
The years have done their worst
The winter has returned
And you’re gone / and you’re gone

In a minute / it’ll all be ended
Take it to her / take it to her
For the boxer / the solitude is over
Waited so long / waited so long) x 2

In a minute / it’ll all be ended
Take it to her / take it to her
Track Name: You Can't Be Sure
It’s gonna take some getting used to
You’re gonna need every single fibre of what you got in ya
There wasn’t a breeze on the sea that day
The wind had taken itself off on a holiday
You can’t be sure you’ll remember everything
But the witness statements claim you had it all under control
But the light was ever fading
And the lights took on a magic / all of their own

Before you knew it / they were on top of you
Before the witness you said you can’t be sure – anymore

And the victory was subtle
And the victors took their places on their pedestals
And they’ll send it down their lines and claim
That the battle has divided all opinion
For it’s nothing to be proud of
For your children’s children’s lines to be affected
And their lives have hunted you for years
The wasted time / the wasted opportunity

Before you knew it / they were on top of you
Before the witness you said you can’t be sure – anymore

Before you knew it / they were on top of you
Before the witness you said you can’t be sure – anymore
Before you knew it / they were on top of you
Before the witness you said you can’t be sure – anymore
Track Name: Girl From Off The Track
Your look / is so changed
Feel a little / unhinged
So take / your time / with me
And see / what you / can see

But I remember / Your complexion
Your silhouette’s in / What I’ve been sketching
You’re nothing special / There now I’ve said it
There’s no turning back / The girl from off the track

Upon the mantel / Your photograph
Inside your letters / You made me laugh
This world is empty / A soul divide
This is your calling / This is your ride

But I remember / Your complexion
Your silhouette’s in / What I’ve been sketching
You’re nothing special / There now I’ve said it
There’s no turning back / The girl from off the track

But I remember / Your complexion
Your silhouette’s in / What I’ve been sketching
You’re nothing special / There now I’ve said it
There’s no turning back / The girl from off the track

You’re nothing special / There now I’ve said it
There’s no turning back / The girl from off the track

You’re nothing special / There now I’ve said it
There’s no turning back / The girl from off the track

You’re nothing special / There now I’ve said it
There’s no turning back / The girl from off the track
Track Name: Another Way To Put It
Another way / to put it / shout away / away
No one’s / listening / to you / anyway
You’ve been so far / and turned around / far too hard
I take it / you left it /as you are / far / far too soft
Now it’s time / your son / is looking to you / to do
The right / thing to do / if you / have it in you

You’re the first to get out / others with you / but it originated with you
You set the precedence with you / others were with you
But it originated with you / they should’ve seen what you could do
What you could do
You felt the winter / blind you / into submission / cold the cold
What it can do to you / you’re numb / sub-zero
Your fingers grip / to life / this night / of all nights tonight
You’ll get it right / damn right
To see your boy / grow up / get up / graduate / find a girl / get married
Take her around the world / with their children
You’re the first to get out / others with you / but it originated with you
You set the precedence with you / others were with you
But it originated with you / they should’ve seen what you could do
What you could do


(You’re the first to get out / others with you / but it originated with you

Track Name: Get Off The Dancefloor
You / were the same person that I thought I’d given everything
Cold / the atmosphere was anything but warm and cosy
Hold / your head up high don’t feel so lowly

Get off the dance floor / shaking your money maker
Shake off the false persona / everyone sees through you
Give a little extra / something

When / the lights went out I put my arms over her shoulder
Love / is what you feel when everything doesn’t really matter
Real / this thing is real as you and me as we’re supposed to be

Get off the dance floor / shaking your money maker
Shake off the false persona / everyone sees through you
Give a little extra / something
Track Name: Paris In The Fall
I’m six / foot / two without my shoes
I never thought Paris could be so cruel
Where suicides are an everyday / occurrence
The weather brings with it beautiful people
And visitors who clammer aboard
The Eiffel Tower and it’s levels / to the sky

With eyes transfixed on the beautiful girl in front of me
I stared as long as my weight would allow me
And counted as long as I could hold my breath to be
Drowning in sleep in the sea of tranquillity
Another jumper – it’s Paris in the Fall

The visitors just stand and look
Their cameras in their cases hooked
They’re mesmerised I make it look so / effortless
The crucifix I left behind / The Rolex watch it wasn’t mine
The scented air it smelled divine
It’s yours again

With eyes transfixed on the beautiful girl in front of me
I stared as long as my weight would allow me
And counted as long as I could hold my breath to be
Drowning in sleep in the sea of tranquillity
With eyes transfixed on the beautiful girl in front of me
I stared as long as my weight would allow me
And counted as long as I could hold my breath to be
Drowning in sleep in the sea of tranquillity
Another jumper – its Paris in the fall
Track Name: I'm Okay
One, two, jump
You on my left side / you on my right / it’s time to step up
I feel as safe as I could ever hope to be
Let’s talk about it /talking is free / can’t say it’ll help you
At least the face will fit / for a while but it isn’t me

For you / there’ll be no more crying
For you / the sun’ll be always shining
There’ll be no more dying
And talk of prayers that need answering

I’d walk it for you / if I could I would / at the gates of heaven
The saints have seen something that wasn’t supposed to be

For you / there’ll be no more crying
For you / the sun’ll be always shining
There’ll be no more dying
And talk of prayers that need answering

For you / there’ll be no more misfortune
Your days are done with lying to yourself
There’s never going to be another day
Quite like this again
Track Name: Lush
It often / goes unrealised / that where you are
Is where the grass is greener
People / not so unexplained / always stay the same
It’s only time that confuses us

So / it goes unrealised / that / where you are
Is where the grass is greener
Faith / has nothing to be proud of / we’re fickle like the rest / maybe even more so

The factory / few get paid off / manage on the meagre
Salary they pay them
Their kids / will not realise / how they sacrificed / every morsel of their dignity

So / it goes unrealised / that / where you are
Is where the grass is greener
Faith / has nothing to be proud of
We’re fickle like the rest / maybe even more so
I saw you stand / I thought you were a man
Full of authority
It wasn’t easy to make / the choice you had to take
The grass was going to be greener

So / it goes unrealised / that / where you are
Is where the grass is greener
Faith / has nothing to be proud of
We’re fickle like the rest / maybe even more so
I saw you stand / I thought you were a man
Full of authority
It wasn’t easy to make / the choice you had to take
The grass was going to be greener
Track Name: So 'n' So
So’n’so called / I could see he loves ya
His mother doesn’t know that there’s nothing for him here
His father never made it out of the street / it was good enough for him / it’ll be good enough for his son
They used to say / suck it to them / now they say where’s your manner’s son?

(His mother doesn’t know that he’s headed for some God forsaken place / but there’s nothing / that we can do) x2

They used to fall out over the simplest of things / weeks would pass / but not a single word
Lovers in arms / brothers and sisters / God the neighbours could talk for Ulster now
Caked in make-up / open for business

(His mother doesn’t know that he’s headed for some God forsaken place / but there’s nothing / that we can do) x2
but there’s nothing / that we can do

(His mother doesn’t know that he’s headed for some God forsaken place / but there’s nothing / that we can do) x2
but there’s nothing / that we can do
(there’s nothing / that we can do) x 4
Track Name: You Need To Hold Me
You are your father’s son / you are the first one
It’s like you never went back to her
There’s someone else who’s wrong for her
There’s someone losing their son to her
Why cover up what’s real and fair
Why hide the hurt that’s clearly there

With the rap on the door / came the shouts from the street
They called out ‘what for’ / put your shoes on your feet
You’ve given all that you could give / for your family
You’re messing with fire / you’ll get burned

In the cold / you remember what to say
Behind their hoods / they look so familiar
Their laughs / you remember who they are
Their brothers and sisters / where in your same class
All for fun / the religious battles done
Play for keeps / but nothing was ever won
Take it on the chin / is there any other way?
Pray for yourself / they’re not going away

With the rap on the door / came the shouts from the street
They called out ‘what for’ / put your shoes on your feet
You’ve given all that you could give / for your family
You’re messing with fire / you’ll get burned
Track Name: One Good Thing
You’re full of grace / son of God won’t satisfy you
Beautiful / innocence is not a race to win
You’re helpless / an upside down beetle you’ve been
You struggle / makes everything far worse for everyone

And you found the one / good thing / in me
And you found the one / good thing inside of me

Take to the skies / aeroplanes you’ve found uplifting
Shame to disgrace / the elders and the aristocracy
You feel at a loss / deny everyone access to you
Hold on tight / there’s no knowing how far this is going to go

And you found the one / good thing / in me
And you found the one / good thing inside of me
Track Name: Take Me Home
When / you are alone / falling like a stone
Dreams take you home / take you home

You are…
And you waited till
The sun had filled
The window sill / you’re plants were open
I had my fill
Like a solar spill
With my raybans on / the future was so bright
(Light / is a beacon / to take me home
The sea / is awash / with froth and foam)

Sunday is the first / for eternity
Don’t work for the man / for the man

You are…
And you waited till
The sun had filled
The window sill / you’re plants were open
I had my fill
Like a solar spill
With my raybans on / the future was so bright
(Light / is a beacon / to take me home
The sea / is awash / with froth and foam)

You are…

(Light / is a beacon / to take me home
The sea / is awash / with froth and foam)
(Light / is a beacon / to take me home
(The sea / is awash / with froth and foam
The roads are chocker)
