The Chase
What is it now, there's something I see in your face
Feel like a fox, hounds close at heels at the chase
Do I see blood in your eyes, babe?
Is it the end of the race?

Hunted me out, sapped me of strength and of will
Showered affections, baited me, loved me until
My defences and cautions were gone, babe
And you did it just for the thrill

Tally-ho! Tally-ho!

Mellowing Grey
Mellowing grey, in misty morning's day
My thoughts turn to you, kingfisher blue
Loveliness born, in velvet shades of dawn
Joy from your eyes, soft summer skies
All things within the world supreme
I compare with the love that is my dream

Mellowing grey, the veil of evening's day
The dream that is you is midnight blue
Your lips that evade a crimson charade
I wait for the dawn from whence you're born
All things within the world supreme
I compare with the love that is my dream

Never Like This
Wear Wellington boots when you tread into water
But what do you do when she's finally caught you
You can't just take off or go underground
You just have to find yourself another way round
Been through this before, but never like this

Her mother is smiling across from the sofa
Dad's watching the teli' but taking no notice
Instead he just plays with some bright coloured blocks
Occasionally speaks of little girls' frocks**
Been through this before, but never like this

Beginning to wish that you'd never met
The girl with the far-away look in her eyes
But to your surprise, she pours you some tea
How many lumps, is it two, one or five?

You suddenly find yourself glad that you came
And your sure that the room doesn't look quite the same
And Dad's got you into his bright coloured blocks
Whilst mother still smiles in her little girl frock
And the girl with the far-away look in her eyes
Has now become very important in life
Been through this before, but never like this


Me My Friend
Me my friend, I have seen many lands, me my friend
I have been far and wide
I have sailed many a tide
I have rolled many a ride

But I wish, me my friend, I could sail to the stars
Have the gift to transport
my whole being, my whole thought
To a world of dreams, my friend

Me my friend, I have loved many girls, me my friend
I have told many lies
I have asked many whys
I have whispered many sighs

But I wish, me my friend, I could have till the end
Someone to love and hold
Through the warmth and the cold
Of my lonely years, my friend

Winter
Winter time, it brings me down
Ice cold winds, snow on the ground
Soon I feel the summer breezes
Watch it as it carefully seizes

Thistle down, send it 'round
Slowly upwards, slowly down
Gently moving, never a sound

Wish that I could hibernate
Go to sleep and never wake
Until the sun comes shining once again

Winter time, it brings me down
Overcoats and scarves thrown 'round
Cold, dark nights, dense wintry gales
Frozen feet in snowy trails

Slowly homeward, trudging through
Wind and rain and hailstorms too
Where's the sun, I wish I knew

Winter time, it brings me down
Ice cold winds, snow on the ground
Winter time, it brings me down
Overcoats and scarves thrown 'round

Old Songs New Songs
Fire is on, I'm getting warm
My girl here, she lies sleeping
The other door slips ajar and it's my wife
She's been peeping
While I've been leaping

High grey stone walls, they all
They all surround me
Well the tracker dogs came around while their masters howled
Cowered they find me
Said I can't be found near

Old songs, new songs
Keep on singing

A new day, yesterday
All gone, until tomorrow
But I surely know a girl like her could only bring
Bring me sorrow
Much worse to follow

All in all, I'm gonna do my best
To do the work that they hand me
Well I'm gonna do my best so if I'm asleep
Understand me
Don't you underhand me, no

Old songs, new songs
Keep on singing

To the top!

Hey Mr. Policeman
Hey Mr. Policeman, one man at bail**
Can I see her one time, before I make jail

I cared for that woman, I cared for that woman
Cared for that woman, cared for that woman
The things I don't tell

Hey there, driver, wait for me here
Don't stop the engine, keep out of gear

Last time I see her, the last time I see her
Last time I see her, last time I see her
In many a year

Hey there, woman, seen me last time
Don't care a nickel, don't give a dime

I cared for you, woman, I cared for you, woman
I cared for you, woman, cared for you, woman
You call it a crime

To the top!

See Through Windows
See through windows, look at things
Sunlight, shadows, cat's paws, Lapwings
Eyes see life's meaning

Mist clear windows, look through them
Snow melts, grass shows, doors open
Eyes see life's meaning

Real life's peculiar, way things are happening
Mountains like embers, glowing and smoldering
Following, wallowing, deep in the void
Slowly but surely you start coming close to it

Tis on the pane, windows mottled
Here through the rain, world looks bottled
Eyes see life's meaning

To the top!

Peace of Mind
Take your time, ease my mind
Wait until my thoughts are blind
See the sun, day has come
That's the way that things are done

There's no stopping, things are throbbing, still I find
Peaceful feeling**, cars are speeding
Peace of mind

I can feel things reveal
Peace within, should I kneel**
Overrun things to come
Contented much to carry on**

There's no stopping, things are throbbing, still I find
Peaceful feeling**, cars are speeding
Peace of mind

To the top!

Voyage
A veil unfolds across my eyes
A shadow falls on open skies
Seeds of doubt leave me without
Any idea of my whereabouts

Where do I look for proof
Who do I ask and what do say
As I sail on my voyage of truth

Curiosity quickens, questions arise
Pick out the fools, show me the wise
Who's to know and what's to show
Is amber the step between stop and go

Songs of seasons, sing us, sing**
But is summer, winter, autumn, spring
What is time within my mind
Is a red rose red to a man who's blind

Where do I look for proof
Who do I ask and what do say
As I sail on my voyage of truth

To the top!

The Breeze
Going through shops and bars and houses**
Blowing through stores in skirts and trousers
Following taxis, hanging on buses
Meadows, fields, in between rushes

Nobody knows, nobody sees
I am the breeze

Blowin' the dust from sphinxes' smiles
Scattering cents for miles and miles**
Cooling bathers lying on beaches
Stealing through watches of pears and peaches

Nobody knows, nobody sees
I am the breeze

Wishing my way through parks and flowers
Gasworks, bridges, cooling towers
Caravans, horses, gypsy campfires
Through church steeples, elegant spires

Nobody knows, nobody sees
I am the breeze

To the top!

3 x Time
There have been many blue yesterdays
Passed me by
And as I sit here my time goes fast
As I reenact the past

The past is gone but always very near
Memories good and bad that I know dear

There have been many long nights
Awake after days
And thought of time and all of its ways
And the melody that it plays

The things I've done and all the friends I've met
Now looking back there's nothing I regret

To the top!
