Dragonfly 04:12
DRAGONFLY Stu would watch Anthology And Joe would build a time machine And I would write a symphony for you Jennifer would hug some trees And Henry chill with family And Jonathon would bungee in the nude If you could only live a day Like a dragonfly in May If you could only live one day What would you do? Alison would rob a bank And Julia would drive a tank And Beth would swim with dolphins in the sea Stan would spend the day in bed And Clive would sail around the Med And Darrin would submerge a submarine

BoNES 03:45
BoNES The melody of a song The beat it goes on and on ... The Devil is in the detail Shame there's nothing left in the retail Try to live in the here & now Keep an ear to the track somehow But there's one thing I can't disown Got this music in my bones The more I feel it, the more that I need it Seems I can't live without it So why must I doubt it? The bass line & the beat To get you on your feet The rhythm & the rhyme It just hits you every time Play it loud & play it proud Turn it up & jump around! Yeah, there's one thing I can't disown I've got this music in my bones ... The more I feel it, the more that I need it Seems I can't live without it So why must I doubt it? (La, La, La) The melody of a song The beat it goes on and on ... The Devil is in the detail Shame there's nothing left in the retail Try to live in the here & now Keep an ear to the track somehow But there's one thing I can't disown Got this music in my bones ... This is something I can't live without It's in my bones (it won't leave me alone)

LOVE LIKE OURS Now the storm has passed It feels like we have won at last No one's got a love like ours Now the dust has settled We don't dig Heavy Metal! We need to run away ... TODAY No one's got a love like ours!

Sweet Norah 03:59
SWEET NORAH Sweet Norah, I can’t ignore her Deep blue eyes and long brown hair Sweet Norah, how I adore here But she don’t register I’m even there She always looks the other way when I walk by She just sighs and rolls her eyes Oh, my, oh, my! She never has a thing to say and when I try I get tongue-tied It’s all a blur, can’t get next to her Sweet Norah, mon amour-ah! What can I do to catch her eye? Sweet Norah, I’d dress up for her Transform her in disguise She always looks the other way when I walk by Oh, my, oh, my! I don’t know why She still blows my mind She never has a thing to say and when I try I get tongue-tied It’s all a blur, can’t get next to her Sweet Norah

Millionaire 03:27
MILLIONAIRE Trying to write a song but it wants to go another way ("Hey! Hey! Hey!") It's sounding like some Lionel Richie outtake on a bad day I'm thinking that some combo organ might help things sit right Plus I'm hoping that some Beach Boy harmonies will bring it to life ("Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!") "BA! BA! BA!" (x2) Well we started out with nothing and we've still got most of it left But, hey, at least we've got each other & you're still wearing my favourite dress. There's no money in this music & it just seems so unfair but with you beside me honey well I feel like a millionaire, yeah! "BA! BA! BA!" (x2) With you beside me honey, well I feel like ... "BA! BA! BA!" (then "LA! LA! LA!") etc.

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE Words are flowing out Like endless rain into a paper cup They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe Pools of sorrow waves of joy Are drifting through my opened mind Possessing and caressing me Jai Guru Deva, Om Nothing's gonna change my world Images of broken light Which dance before me like a million eyes They call me on & on across the universe Thoughts meander like a Restless wind inside a letter box They stumble blindly as they make their way across the universe Jai Guru Deva, Om Nothing's gonna change my world Sounds of laughter, shades of earth Are ringing through my opened mind Inciting and inviting me Limitless undying love Which shines around me like a million suns And calls me on and on across the universe Jai Guru Deva, Om Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change

I JUST WANNA BE ME I just wanna be me You can be who you want I just wanna be me Just singing for the byrds (x2) It's so hard to make a bean When everyone around you's handing out for free When I was young I had a dream But it got crushed by an industry Because it seems these days if you wanna be a Rock'n'Roll band You just knock off a song then you log on to Internet Land And then you spend the next six months just creating your brand Like some pyramid scheme selling your tin of beans Well I just wanna be me You can be who you want Yeah, I just wanna be me Just singing for the birds I just wanna be me And you may think that that sounds boring But we've all got a different story I could change my voice I could cut my hair But I've made my choice And I'll just stay who I am I, I, I, I, I just wanna be me!

BeBopALuLa I've got a Northern Soul A heart of Rock'n'Roll When life it takes it's toll ... BeBopALuLa Those cats they've got me wrong Just wanna sing my song We've got it going on ... BeBopALuLa It's time to break this mould Just trying to save your soul Your cover is about to be blown ... BeBopALuLa I'm gonna quit this town Turn my frown upside down Round, round get around ... BeBopALuLa

STAR CROSSED LOVER I don’t care if the sky falls through Girl, I just want to be with you Spin me your lines, I don’t mind The swing of your hips and the lick of your lips That current running through your fingertips Your place or mine, I don’t mind No, I don’t mind, my star crossed lover I don’t mind, my star crossed lover Comb your hair if you want me to A kiss on the neck if you’re feeling blue Any old time, it’s alright There ain’t no rush ‘cause I ain’t going nowhere You make me feel like some millionaire Loaded on wine and Valentines You’re out of time but I don’t mind

In My Room 03:08
IN MY ROOM There’s a world where I can go and tell my secrets to In my room, in my room In this world I lock out all my worries and my cares In my room, in my room Do my dreaming and my scheming Lie awake and pray Do my crying and my sighing Laugh at yesterday Now it’s dark and I’m alone But I won’t be afraid In my room, in my room

KEEP THE HOME FIRES BURNING Well, that's the end of the show I'm afraid I've gotta go Keep the home fires burning 'til the next time Thank you all for tuning in There's so much more I've yet to sing But I've gotta deal with this thing So 'til the next time .... Where I'm bound God only knows I'll leave yu this to fill the hole My take on Pet Sounds / Rubber Soul And tell my wife I love her so Until the next time then ...

about

This album was recorded over the last 12 months during somewhat challenging circumstances let's just say! I channelled all my energies into it so it helped keep me focused & positive. I guess it now stands as a sonic testament to what's been going on in my head over this last year (hence the album title!) I do hope you enjoy what you hear here - CHEERS! Trip [March 2020]
