about

Songs is a collection of pieces written over the period of a few years, they were just lying around on tapes and hardrives so I thought why not put them all together on this compilation.

Track Name: Thing About You
I've got a thing about, a thing about, a thing about
I've got a thing about, a thing about, a thing about
I've got a thing about, a thing about, a thing about you

I've got to sing about, sing about and sing about
I've got to sing about, sing about and sing about
I've got to sing about, sing about and sing about you

I've got to think about, think about and think about
I've got to think about, think about and think about
I've got to think about, think about and think about you

Your eyes, your eyes, your eyes, your eyes!
Track Name: Bed With Sails On
You are beautifuller than Autumn leaves
I fancy you and apartments from London
I would enter in your painting room
Dirty jeans on

For a day I felt I was your wife
Stood beside you in your morbid jacket
Sleep with me in a spacious room
Bed with Sails on
Bed with Sails on

For a day I felt I was your wife
Stood beside you in your morbid jacket
Sleep with me in a spacious room
Bed with Sails on
Bed with Sails on
Track Name: Yellow
You are yellow like the sun to me
Your'e as cool as the aqua marine sea
You gave me the gift of the Irish coast
You gave me a flock of hens to hold
You leant me the chicken wishing bone
You must of thought that I needed it.

You took the long way home
By the streetlight, you avoided the parked cars
You leant me the money for cigarettes
You took off my clothes bit by bit
You started with my shoes
You questioned a bruise
I realised you cared, despite what you said.

Watch your films in the cinema
Lend a friend your only guitar
I can tell, that you are gonna be a success
In all aspects of life, it's rare to be so generous
It's rare to lack all carelessness
In whatever you do.
In whatever you do.
Track Name: Messy
You, you were always a sucker for the girl you couldn't have
You never had anyone back apart from me, I had the couch
I used to live next door but you said I was like a sister
and that was so unfortunate for me in my dissapointment.
Me, me wanting you, you wanting her, her wanting somebody else
but lately you must have changed your tune, it's a new moon
now you want me, but I want somebody else.

I'm sorry I always tend to mess things up,
whether it's just decorating these old walls or
celebrating your birthday.
I'm sorry I always tend to fuck things up,
whether it's just decorating these old walls or
celebrating your birthday.

So, let's have a party - let's get drunk, let's dress up,
let's get drunk, lets dress up
you've cut your hair off so I'll bring you flowers
you've cut your hair off so I'll bring you flowers
you've cut your hair off so I'll bring you

I'm sorry I always tend to fuck things up,
whether it's just decorating these old walls or
celebrating your birthday.
I'm sorry I always tend to mess things up,
whether it's just decorating these old walls or
celebrating your birthday.

You were always forgiving me
You were always forgiving me
You were always forgiving me
You were always forgiving me
Track Name: You Are A Fool
Whether I'm reading or drawing or sleeping or talking
Or buying a second hand table,
I forget you're not here, there's the empty chair
where I swear you were just a minute, a second

You are a fool
You don't see ahead of you
You don't see what you've lost
You don't see what you've got

You have a big idea
Of what your life should be like

Teaching Alish when, I got you
you seem just like a twelve year old
with your love of animals.
Teaching Alish when, I got you
you seem just like a twelve year old
with your love of animals.

You're in the doorways of my dreams
And you're out on the street
and you're up on the ceiling
if I ever feel over the moon.

I was okay until I got here
I was okay until this evening
and then somebody just stepped in
with a hair colour like yours.

You are a fool
You don't see ahead of you
You don't see what you've lost
You don't see what you've got
Track Name: The Storm
After the storm there will be calm,
After the wind and rain and hail
We'll be able to take the car out again
You'll see

The car us green like the trees
And you've not told any lies this year
In the eye of the storm it would be easy to lie
You've decided to tell the truth
To tell the truth
To tell the truth
To tell the truth
To tell the truth

We may be stuck in the low valley
Where the river gets thicker in winter seasons
and freezes and declines to minus ten
But you still see planes pass at night
like a far out planet theres a pilot light
seeing your breath, on the black air

From out here outer space may look pitch black
But ten miles to the East there are cars and bars
and plays and pizzerias

But from out here
It all seems clear
Just for a second there
It all seemed clear
Just once this year
It aaaaaaaaall seemed clear
Track Name: Spyglass
If I were a dentist I would pluck your teeth out
so I could keep them; You're a bad-sweet-bad-boy
If I were a chef I would bake the cake
So I could letch in private and do unseen things
to celebrate

But I'm not the one, I'm not the sun, sure as hell am not sunshine
So I, I guess we can leave it at a spyglass

Yeah it's hard being on the outside of your life sometimes
its tough and its rough, but I like what I like
and we were just reflecting on what a star
you were you are you were

But I'm not the one, I'm not the sun, sure as hell am not sunshine
So I, I guess we can leave it at a spyglass
I'm not the one, I'm not the sun,
I'm no remedy, I'm no Susan Kennedy
I'm just a tourist with a camera on a fine day

Making paper aeroplanes, I'm glad we flew those paper aeroplanes
Making new diet plans, I'm glad we flew those paper aeroplanes
Im glad we flew those paper aeroplanes
Im glad we flew those paper aeroplanes

But I'm not the one, I'm not the sun, sure as hell am not sunshine
So I, I guess we can leave it at a spyglass
Im not the one, I'm not the sun
I'm no remedy, I'm no Susan Kennedy
I'm just a tourist with a camera on a fine day.
Track Name: I Walked Out On My Lover
I walked out on my lover today
I don't know if it was the right thing to do
I never seem to -
the idea of being on my own is different than the actual thing

I walked out on my lover today
I don't know if it was the right thing to do
I never seem to -
the idea of being on my own is different than the actual thing and


Everybody in this city seems to have a wife -
or a dog or a car or a knife and
everybody in this city seems to know what they wanna do
and don't go walking out on lovers out of the blue

Have I ever cheated on you?
Have I ever cheated on you?

What's this thing about lovers?
In films they exist in foreign rooms like ships cruising on the sea
Whats this thing about lovers?
In films they exist in foreign rooms like ships cruising on the sea

Whats this thing about lovers?
Whats this thing about love?
In films they exist in foreign rooms like ships cruising on the sea
In films they exist in foreign rooms like ships cruising on the sea

Whats this thing about lovers?
Whats this thing about love?
Track Name: Brand New Girlfriend
I've seen the patterns in your face
I've seen that guitar you got
the way you play or move
As I ride my bike through the trees

I know the way you swig that bitter
I know the way you get better and better
Cos your so great to know

But you've got a brand new girlfriend
Nothing to worry about she's straight from the packet
She knows what CD's to choose
What shoes to wear, what not to do yeah yeah

I know the fact that you need glasses
The way you get so embarrassed well your
great, great to know.

You asked me out, I said no
Well goddamn, how I regret it
Cos your so great to know

But you've got a brand new girlfriend
Nothing to worry about she's straight from the packet
She knows what CD's to choose
What shoes to wear, what not to do.
Yeah she's thin and she's pretty you know
she dress so tidy, she won't get drunk and
fall over she's not pathetic, act so cool
now don't stutter, don't like her -
she's got you.
Track Name: More Beer
Oh I was 23 last week
Im going to get my heart broken today
It's as if there's some grandmaster plan
Tell me you don't love me whilst holding my hand

YoU make me very very very upset
YoU make me very very very upset
YoU make me very very very upset
Come along and upset me

When your heart's in little pieces
Nothing seems quite the same
Even my favourite things seem lame
Wish I could call you
But theres nothing left
Theres nothing left to do -
except get drunk,
and spew

YEAH oh Yeah
More beer! More beer! More beer!
More beer! More beer! More beer!
More beer! More beer! More beer!
Track Name: Joyriding
Not everybody knows what it's like to go joyriding
No difference between green or red
Just a need for speed in the head, the owners in bed
Not everybody knows what the country's like
In a stolen car you'll go so far before you're dead
Will they make that arrest?

I'm only joyriding with you
I'm only joyriding with you
I'm only joyriding like you

Cigarette my firefly is zooming through the view past you
to joyride like you

Cigarette my firefly is zooming through the view past you
to joyride like you
Track Name: My Own Personal God
He's the one who paints those rainbows so high up in the sky
And he makes clocks and watches and batteries
so you know the time
He paints the patterns onto shells,
And the blue onto bluebells
And watches people in cars, on lawns, on beaches and the towns
He strokes the cats who are sleeping and dreaming
And sometimes leaves a little cream but quickly he is leaving
He gets down and He's crying, and He's crying because of it
And the sky is weeping
And the people run in the evening
Home to dinners they end up leaving
It's a little ridiculous
Don't you think?

He's the one who leaves a spider in your bath sometimes
Creeps in in the dark to see what you'll do this time
Just to test you, just to watch you
He leaves it up to you
And just because you're paranoid
Doesn't mean he's not watching you
He strokes the cats who are sleeping and dreaming
And sometimes leaves a little milk but quickly he is leaving
He gets down and He's crying, and He's crying because of it
And the sky is weeping
And the people run in the evening
Home to dinners they end up leaving
It's a little ridiculous
Don't you think?

Use a piece of card and a see-through glass
So the spider can see through
You see it, it sees you
Well you scare it and it scares you
But later the spider gets a much better view
And that's many thanks to you
And gets to see the sky go a very promising
Very glowing dark blue

We fall off our bicycles out of trees onto our knees
If you go blind then you will keep on feeling
If you get down, He's around
If your heart breaks, then it will keep on beating
If you go deaf you will keep on seeing
If you get down, He's around

And He's only joyriding, with you.
