-Freedom

-Take Control

Every Little Memory-

Pa was my pretender Dad

Because I didn’t have one

He’d tuck me into bed each night

We’d say my prayers together

Nan sang Mr. Sandman

When I couldn’t sleep

She couldn’t sing in tune

But it was soothing to me

~CHORUS

So many memories

Of a time when life was good

So many memories

Of that neighborhood

So many memories

That will never die

So many memories

Where not a single piece now lies

Pa would let me steer

The car round Berger Rd

At that age I thought that I

Could drive all on my own

Nan was always working

She sold Tupperware

She always bought me KFC

I didn’t have to share

~ Chorus

Pa fixed bikes & scooters

We’d ride them up the dam

Say hi to our Nanny goat

And also to the lamb

Sing dance cocky dance

To the cockatoo

Eat beans right off the vine

When our hunger grew

~ Chorus

Tag *(Every little memory)

*(Where not a single piece now lies)

-No-one Does it Better (than You & Me)

-Welcome To The Neighbourhood

'Rough Road' Album

590 Days 

No wonder I’m going round the twist

How can anybody live like this

Come over & spend a day with me

You’ll be surprised at what you’ll see, after

Chorus

590 days

590 days

590 days

590 days

Of pain

I try to move on with my life

Cause a recluse life well it sure aint nice

I just wanna be back strong & tall

Oh, but who really cares at all, that I’ve had

Chorus

Don’t know who I am any more

I'm not the person that I was before

Oh, the pain I have endured

Oh but it still goes on ignored, after

Chorus 

Breathe In

The shells not cracked & it’s not broken

But there’s emptiness within

No emotion just silence

Breathe in, Breathe in

Feels like I’m standing on the outside

Looking at things I cant see

Just a blank stare then nothing

Breathe in, Breathe in Deep

Chorus

Emotion deludes me still I weep

Lethargy entwines me so I sleep

Anger exploding deep inside

From myself, I cannot hide

Feeling uncomfy in my clothes

Can they see through my disguise

Fake laughter means nothing

Breathe in, Breathe in

Pain it resonates throughout me

Trying so hard to stay sain

Hold your breath it’s almost O-ver

Breathe in, Breathe in

Chorus

So Breathe in

So Breathe in

So Breathe in

Rough Road

Steady as she goes, cause were almost home

From this Rough Rough Road

Well we, we didn't see this one coming

You know it took us out from left field

And sent us On & On & On & On & On and On

This Rough Rough Road

Saw things we never thought we'd see

That alone wasn't easy

Still we held On & On & On & On & On and On

This Rough Rough Road

Rough Rough Road, Rough Rough Road

Well we've all been there and done that

And wondered how in the hell we'd get through it

Still we held On & On & On & On & On and On

This Rough Rough Road, This Rough Rough Road

Rough Rough Road

Holding On & On & On & On & On and On

Striving On & On & On & On & On and On

Surviving On & On & On & On & On and On

This Rough Rough Road

Rough Rough Road, Rough Rough Road

Well steady as she goes, cause were almost home.

Rabbit in a Cage

Procreation done

3 daughters & 2 sons

Many generations will come

Civil engineer

intelligence quite clear

until the end is near

Old age, your just a rabbit in a cage

Just a rabbit in a cage

She took wings & flew away

round about 4 years ago today

No cage

Old age your just a rabbit in a cage

Just a rabbit in a cage

Rabbit in a cage not like the Airforce days

Not like the Airforce Days

Rabbit in a cage it's such a pretty pretty cage

A pretty pretty cage for old aged

Pretty pretty cage

No-one can be saved

No-one can be saved from old age

Procreation done

3 daughters & 2 sons

Many generations will come

Forever By My Side

I'm miles away from you & I miss you

I see your smile I want to kiss you

I can almost fast your lips

what i'd give for a moment like this

I close my eyes your scent surrounds me

I feel your body wrapped around me

I feel your touch my body aches

One thought of you is all it takes

Chorus

You just take my breath away

I just hold you close & hope & pray

You'll be forever by my side

With the love & strength that I rely on

Your tender touch in the small dark hours

My heart is open it devourers

Hold you closer to my skin

Can't believe the pleasure your love brings

Chorus x2

Risks

Way too many risks are being taken

Way too many lives are being risked

I sit & watch with nervous frustration

Waiting for the sound of something hit

I know that sounds a little weird & creepy

I know that sounds a little kinda strange

But my friend I have been a road statistic

I tell you now that somethings gotta change

Chorus

Cause You'll see U turns on a crest

P plates proving their the best

Texting & talking on the phone

In such a hurry every day

Well attentions not quite paid

Now somebody's loved one isn't coming home

So please watch out next time you are out there driving

Pay attention to the risks that people take

Your life is in the hands of an utter stranger

In a killing machine that no-one does respect

So Chorus

Some Days are Diamonds

Muse

My Muse is gone, I'm all alone

My heart is slowly aching

A symbol of

A love so strong never open for the taking

Chorus

And if you think I'll ever give him up

Think again, just think again

A childhood dream

My prince charming

Romances every season

A love affair

So true so rare it defies the age of reason

Chorus

Chorus

He's the only one in my whole world

I know I can depend

Spellbound by his stature

And it's a Happy Ever After

I'm just honoured to be his lover & his friend

Chorus x2

My Kinda Heaven

V1. Never knew what heaven was

Only know how I want it to be

Just like the last scene

Of the Titanic movie

Chorus

Back to that perfect place

Back where I felt free

Back to that perfect place

my sanctury

Never really liked the thought

Of white robes & up above

Angels singing in a choir

Not knowing those I love, oh take me

Chorus

Bridge

I'll be as free as a bird with a safe little soul

Floating around & never grow old

reliving happy memories

Yeah thats the kinda heaven for me

Wouldn't care if I died tomorrow

If I knew that I would be

Running laughing being happy

With all of my family

Chorus

Bridge

V1.

Chorus x2

Lift My Spirits

We'll they say that everything happens for a reason

The answer to our trials & tribulations

The essence that makes us who we are

The strength that helps us to make it this far

The heartache that we all endure

Just to make our future pure

Lord it brings us to our knees

Help me help me help me please

Lift my spirits set me free

I just wanna be happy

Lift my spirits let me soar

don't wanna cry no more

Pick up & do my day to day

learn my lessons come what may

keep walking that bumpy road ahead

Cryin inside but i smile instead

Chorus

Feels like the end is closing in now

Find some strength from within somehow

Try to move on with my life

forget the anguish pain & strife

Chorus

Free As a Bird

Remember when I was 3 or 4 sitting on Pa's lap in the big ole Ford

Steering my way round Berger Rd

Feeling just as free as a bird

Remember when I had just turned 18 bought my 1st car she was a Dutsan

Steering my way where i wanted to go

And Feeling just as free as a bird

Remember all the freedom that I had

Remember all the good times that we shared

Remember the day my love was ripped away

My freedom was gone & I didn't have a say

Now I'm surrounded by walls with pink tinges can't work retail i'm still injured

Steeringwheel's spinning the wrong way

My wings are clipped I'm living in a cage

Time to grab ahold of that wheel I know one day I will heal

Steering my way round lives steep bends

Well this little bird'll be free again

Remember when I was 3 or 4 sitting on Pa's lap in the big ole Ford

Steering my way where I wanted to go

AndFeeling just as free as a bird

Feeling just as free as a bird

Yeah I'll be feeling just as free as a bird
