about

This collection of songs was written during the month of November 2012 as part of National Solo Album Writing Month, NaSoAlMo. This is an online initiative inviting folk to write and record 29.09 minutes of original solo music/songs. This is the result of my participation, presented here as written and recorded for NaSoAlMo with no further production or edits.

Dedicated to Toffee Ball who will always remain in our hearts.

Track Name: long time dead
long time dead

Pack your bags were leaving town
Don't call no one to tell them till the morning
We'll be miles and miles from here
There'll be no one to interfere i promise

It willl just be me and you

No more fights and no more lies
Late late night with crying eyes to haunt us
We know it's wrong and we know it's right
We'll hurt the ones we leave behind we know it

What else is there to do?

Catch a train jump on a bus
Or steal a car don't matter how we do it
Just get your things were in a rush
I've got some cash we've got the chance let's take it

Don't watch the train go round the bend
We've seen it in our dreams now let's get on it
Maybe your sister and your old man
Will finally find something they have in common

We can be out of the country
before the sun comes up
Little darlin we'll be gone
When the world wakes up
So get your coat and hat
Let's not worry about the rest
Cause we can start again

Switch the lights off on our old live's
And let's start this thing anew
We'll step out from the shadows baby me and you
I feel like starting over
Gonna start my life again
Cause were a long time dead

Catch a train jump on a bus
Or steal a car don't matter how we do it
Just get your things were in a rush
I've got some cash we've got the chance let's take it

Don't watch the train go round the bend
We've seen it in our dreams now let's get on it
Maybe your sister and your old man
Will finally find something they have in common

Switch the lights off on our old live's
And let's start this thing anew
We'll step out from the shadows baby me and you
I feel like starting over
Gonna start my life again
Cause were a long time dead
Track Name: sundays with sarah
sunday's with sarah

You are the sun
She said
And I am the moon
Write me a song
She said
This afternoon
Sing it to me
As I lie in our bed
I'll share with you
What's going on
In my head

No words
In the chorus please
Just Ahh's and Oooh's
I want to be able
To sing it with you
Then you can
Come join me
We'll sing it again
Only this time for real
Again and again

If I am your sugar
Then you are my spoon
If you are like water
Then I'm a lagoon
Sing for me first
Then we'll melt into one
Then lay there like spoons
In the afternoon sun

Cause it's you
I want to sing with
And it's you
I want to lie with

Don't wake me up please
If I fall asleep
And if I sleep too long
Then a nice cup of tea
Would soften the landing
And I'd purr at your feet
Then we'll sing the song
That you've written for me

Cause it's you
That I want to sing with
And it's you
I want to lie with

I'll read the papers
While you write the song
Try not to be loud
And don't be too long
Remember the chorus
Is just Aah's and Oooh's
I want to be able
To sing it with you

Don't you forget
That I can sing in tune
I just get excited
And reach for the moon
So please choose a key
That is easy for me
And I'll sing like a bird
You'll be so happy

Sunday's with Sarah
For most of my life
Exotic and charming
A lover a wife
A girl from the valley's
With Sunday's to share
With me at her side
An odd little pair
Aah! Oooh!
Track Name: how do you feel today?
how do you feel today?

Some old wings
Are good to fly
Not at speed
But they can glide

It's a song you sing
Not a song you write
You don't mine
Deep down inside

Don't clip
My Wings
I feel
Alright

Yesterday
Was yesterday
It's tomorrow
That's on
My mind

There's so much
I haven't said
When I know
I've been unkind

Don't clip
My wings
I feel
Alright

Each tomorrow
Feels like spring
Though I know
It's winter time

Every smile
You gently bring
To my face
Tells me I'm fine

Let the sun
Shine through
On our lives

Darling
Me and you
It's our time

Please don't
Ask me
How I'm feeling
You know
I'm feeling fine

Let the sun
Shine through
On our lives

Darling
Me and you
It's our time

Please don't
Ask me
How I'm feeling
You know
I'm feeling fine
Track Name: song for toffee ball
song for toffee ball

(Toffee was special and he was loved).

Take me across the river
I'm on the wrong side
This is not
Where my folks are
This is no place
For me to die

I got lost somewhere
On this journey
I was the boy
With the sparkling eyes
I have sisters
And they love me
Take me over
To the other side

Carry me across the river
Take me tae
The streets where I
Left my heart
As I got older
Lost my way
In a world of sighs

The bag
Just got too heavy
It's not the tools
I kept inside
The streets
Just kept on turning
I was always
On the other side

Carry me across the river
take me tae
The streets where I
Lived with the love
Of my Mother and Father
I was the apple
Of their eye

Take me across the river
I'm on the wrong side
This is not
Where my folks are
This is no place
For me to die
Track Name: shoney the lonely
shoney the loney

Shoney was a preachin man
Though he hardly had the right
His secrets were the sins he kept
They crawled on him like lice
He knew you couldn't see them
When you were blinded by his smile

An odious little creature
Who crept around at night
Searching for the lost and lonely
Sheep that he might find
His Mother never knew him
She just spat him out
And left him to die

Shoney the lonely
Nobody comes to pray
At your side

Wonder why?

Mrs Campbell she would feed him
And take him in from time to time
She swore he was a seannachie
From some old clan or ancient tribe
He looked a lot like Rasputin
You could see God and Satan in his eyes

Shoney the lonely
Told her tales
That made her cry

They were lies

Deep in the forest undeneath the dying pines
There lay the sheep who were lost and found
Where the birds don't sing and the only sound
Is the howling wind as it blows the tall trees down

There's a body by the fireplace
With a poker in it's eye
You'd swear to God that it was moving
Such an ugly way to die
Mrs Campbell killed the preacher
And to the forest he is bound

Shoney the lonely
Lies with the sheep
Who were lost and found

In Mrs Campbell's sacred ground

Shoney the lonely
Drank tea with the Devil
And she stole his life

Such a darling sweet little wife
Track Name: come to the edge
come to the edge

Come to the edge
Of the water she said
She held his hand
And lifted her head
To the sky

The moon cut a diamond
into her eye
And bathed her skin
In marble light

He's gone she said
And never coming back
He's left us
Both behind

And I fear for us
In this wicked world
It's not the place
For you and I

Come to the edge
Of the water
She said
As a star
fell down
From the sky

Here we will sleep
By the ocean deep
And drift out
On the tide

Is that what you meant
By a beautiful death?
Said the boy
While his Mother cried

For that's what you said
In the note that I raed
The one you
Left behind

Come to the edge
Of the water she said
As a cloud
Hid the moon
From the sky

I'm only a boy
But I'll soon
Be a man
And I love you
With all of my life

I'll make you strong
I'll do all that I can
Keep you safe inside
And you won't cry

You won't cry

But the deed
Had been done
In the chocolate
So warm
As sleep
Took a hold
Of their eyes

When the sun
Came up
The boy sat up
And saw her
There by his side
His Mother had gone
With the tide at dawn
And left her
Body behind

Come to the edge
Of the water
She said
As a star
fell down
From the sky

Here we will sleep
By the ocean deep
And drift out
On the tide
