Angel In My Room

There’s an angel in the shadows of my room
And she watches me when I’m all alone
When my sad heart is hurt and crying
That’s when she comes to me
And she leads me home

If I close my eyes
And I take her hand
I can see you right there
Where my angel stands

Into the night when I’m missing you
I lay me down with the angel in my room

And in the shadows she stands alone
And she’s waiting for me
When I’m coming home

Into the night when I’m missing you
I lay me down with the angel in my room

I see the tears in my baby’s eyes
But in the distance I still hear her cry
And baby I’m longing but it passes by
When I hold you in my arms
Everything will be all right

If I close my eyes I can see her there
I can see you right there
Where my angel stands
Into the night when I’m missing you
I lay me down with the angel in my room
That’s when I lay me down with the angel in my room

Baby’s On Fire

Baby’s on fire, it’s a beautiful thing
Baby’s on fire, it’s beginning to sing
Baby’s on fire, so imaginative
Nobody else gets to see it and live
Baby’s on fire, the moonlight skin
Black and white cinema, outa Berlin
Black and white cinema, flooding inside
Baby’s on fire in the submarine tide
Baby’s on fire
And I
I’m in flames
I been workin’ all day
Baby and I are gonna get it away
I been workin’ all day, and all I know
Baby’s on fire, the higher and higher we go

And I
I’m in flames

Bal-a-Versailles

Aliester Crowley
And Bar Shem Tov
Are lyin’ in the alley
Too stoned to move
Them and Aristotle
Are playin’ swy
For one tiny bottle
Of Bal-a-Versailles

Over the ocean
Over the sea
From out of east of Eden
Pre-B.C.
To Terra Incognito
Anno Domini
Hits the libido
Bal-a-Versailles

People say it’s an animal thing
A whisper of alien air
People say you’re a fool if you fall in love
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Dogs are barking,
The caravanserai
Rolls on, through the night
Bal-a-Versailles

People say all the usual things
Talkin’ and kissin’ the air
People say you’re a fool if you fall in love
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Reason for living
Reason to die
Take it as given

Dogs are barking,

Rolls on, through the night

By My Side

Trying hard just to stay on top
Seems the more I get, the less I got
It won’t be long is all they can say
While all I know is slippin away

But I believe in something strong
And I will be faithful
I can’t go wrong
I can see that the road is long
There will be nothing denied
As long as you’re by my side

Somewhere back in my memory
There’s a dream I thought
One day would be
Just like the time slippin through my hands
Things don’t always work out
They way that you planned

But I believe in something strong
And I will be faithful
I can’t go wrong
I can see that the road is long
There will be nothing denied
As long as you’re by my side

Hear me now while I say a prayer
For the time is sure to come
Whether I know the way or not
I’ve just got to run

But I believe in something strong
And I will be faithful
I can’t go wrong
I can see that the road is long
There will be nothing denied
But I believe in something strong
And I will be faithful
I can’t go wrong
I can see that the road is long
There will be nothing denied
As long as you’re by my side

He Can’t Believe It’s Over With You

There’s someone out there hangin’ around
Mentioning your name all over town
Some old flame of yours
Someone you knew
And he can’t believe it’s over with you

He says that he is where you belong
You tell me you ain’t seen him in so long
Maybe he’s the fool
Maybe it’s true
That he can’t believe it’s over with you

I may need to take him aside
See if you have anything to hide
Make it plain to him
What I will do
If he can’t believe it’s over with you

Whichever way it goes
I can easily explain it so he knows
How it is with you
These days

I can’t walk away
That’s not what I do
When he can’t believe it’s over with you

Mr. Crown Prosecutor

Mr. Crown Prosecutor
No matter what I say or do
You take money, to put whatever
May be the opposite view
What you see, is what I am
I will always be, an honest man
Mr Crown Prosecutor, raise my hand
I can’t say the same about you

Mr. Crown Prosecutor, go down now
I’ll show you where your children play
The deep shit they get to play with
And the people that they’ve got to pay
I got caught, in a traffic jam
A girl on the street, with a chain of command
Goin’ up through the city
To the government of the day

Mr. Crown Prosecutor, raise my hand
The hands of a fish so small
You know, if it wasn’t so
I wouldn’t be here at all
What you see, is what I am
I will always be, an honest man
Lost in the blind stupidity of it all

Mr. Crown Prosecutor, go down now
I’ll show you where your children play
The deep shit they get to play with
And the people that they’ve got to pay
But Mr. Crown Prosecutor, if you look
You’ll find where it tells it to ya in this book
How the vine by the well
Gotta branch out over the wall

Never Stop Loving You

Well it’s taken so long to reach the time
Where we can go on or leave it behind
For better or worse so easy to say
But I choke on the words as you push me away

And every move along the way
Has moved us each in separate ways
And I can feel there’s something
Going wrong

Oh I’ll never stop loving you this life
Maybe I’m wrong maybe I’m right

Well I look in your eyes You never look back
All the sparkle is gone there’s nothing left
But the black

What’s the use of holding back
The best defence is still attack
And don’t give up before the battle’s
Won

I’ll never stop loving you this life
Maybe I’m wrong maybe I’m right
Can’t turn and run when I can fight
I’ll never stop loving you this life.

J. Barnes – EMI Music

Once Around the Sun

Let’s take a walk girl
See what we can see
I talk to you girl
You can talk to me
But if you look real hard
Into someone else’s eyes
You can find a soul and set it free

Once around the sun is nothin
I can’t seem to get enough of you girl in my life

Sometimes it’s funny what the heart can see
While eyes can only stare in disbelief
Well there’s a place way down
Most people try to hide
Like a place in you I hope to find

Once around the sun is nothin
I can’t seem to get enough of you girl in my life
Once around the sun will find me
Well any place that you’re beside me here girl in my life

Won’t you come on

Let’s take a walk girl
See what we can see
I talk to you girl
You can talk to me
Sometimes it’s funny what the heart can see
While eyes can only stare in disbelief
And if you look real hard
Into someone else’s eyes
You can find a soul and set it free

Pretty Little Thing

Pretty little thing there’s a smoky moon
Pretty little thing up between the dunes
Pretty little thing there’s a place I know
Pretty little thing, lets go

I say yeah,
yeah,
yeah,
Pretty little thing, I want you

Pretty little thing the way you stagger around
Like Bambi gotten lost on a handful o’ mandies
An’ all o’ these hillbillies hangin’ around
To see if you can handle it, and fillin’ their immediate plans with you

Well they don’t know jack shit and for all o’ your
Juiced up, anyone’s, user pays little act
You know you ain’t never gonna fall
And there ain’t no one o’ them’ll ever get to lay their hands on you

I say yeah, yeah,
yeah, yeah,
Pretty little thing when you need a ride
Pretty little thing I got the wheels outside

I say yeah, yeah,
yeah, yeah,
Pretty little thing you know I can’t afford the time
I get easily bored

Pretty little thing underneath what’s real o’ that
Pretty little thing for the taking deal, well
Pretty little thing you know I just might feel like
Goin’ for a ride in the moonlight and doin’ what I can for you

Don Walker – Palomarr / Rondor

Red Sand

Way out back of the Coolgardie
Round the turn of the century
Two riders came out of the west
They were lookin’ for the colour of gold
Trading on an old red blanket
Took ‘em in a young boy
Passed him on to a pearl lugger
That was Java bound outa Roebuck Bay

The crew were mainly Manila men
And the young boy must have known
He’d never be back now
Down in the red sand

Manila-man got the machete
Manila-man cut him down cold
Die with the Balander boss on a lugger
Could not have been more
Than twelve years old

Looking out on a clear sky
As the sun beats down on her head
A mother alone
Fails to understand
And as the long years go by
Just an old red blanket to dry
The tears for the son
Who’ll never be home
Down in the red sand

Ian Moss, Peter Moss, Cal Curtis – Mushroom Music / Control / Control

So Hard

They’re so hard
Women, that is
So hard
And all that I ever know
Of you
Is the damage you can do
And it breaks the other way, I know
It’s so hard

For so long
You were the one
For so long, now
Anyone who denied
Your way
Had to play with the two of us
Now I feel that’s begun to change
And it’s so hard

I believe
There’s a restlessness growin’ in you
And I feel the same
I dunno if there’s a day comin’ soon
That’ll find us alone
Or if that wouldn’t be such a bad thing

All I know
Of you
Is the damage you can do
And it breaks the other way, I know
It’s so hard

Someone Caught My Eye

Someone caught my eye
Driftin’ passed my window
I thought I recognised
A girl that I once knew
Open window wide
Further to discover
If somebody else
Walks along with you

Should I go outside
But would she remember
Maybe she’d deny
Although we know it’s true
But that was long ago
Maybe best forgotten
Time will hold forever
The love we knew

All the laughter sorrow and pain
Awakened deep inside
Another time, another place
When you were mine
Though we will never see that again
At times I wonder why
Now I wonder
Should I call your name

Someone caught my eye
Driftin’ passed my window
I still recognise
The way I felt for you
But that was long ago
Better left forgotten
Time will hold forever
The love we knew

Somewhere In the Silence

Somewhere in the silence
There’s got to be something
So much more
Somewhere in the silence
The answer is there for one and all

Together now
So in love we are one
Oh, I wanna make it
Get inside your heart

When late at night
And our thoughts start to flow
Somewhere in the silence
There’s the answer I know

So many times
We come so close
Somewhere inside
We feel we know

Another night
With memories alone
Oh, I got so many
Of a love unsung

I see your face
Such a sight to behold
Somewhere in the silence
I will find you I know

The Things I Love In You

Sittin’ on the corner drinkin’ my beer
Told all the others happy new year
Told everybody some things
I knew
I knew
Told everybody don’t cry
How this thing with you
Doesn’t really matter any more
Never really mattered anyway
Only I do wonder how you’d feel
If it were you
In my shoes

Could you change, I wonder
If you knew
All the things I love in you

If I had a dollar for every time
I hung out on the corner doin’ time
While you showed another through all
All the things I love

Could you change, I wonder
If you knew
All the things I love in you

The Last Wave Of Summer

On the last wave of summer
I lost my soul to you

The last wave of summer
I lost it all to you

Every thing has a time
This I know is true

I could live forever
This perfect day with you

There’s a cold winter comin’
I can feel the change

It’s the last wave of summer
We’ll ever see again

Lets ride…

There’s a cold winter coming
Can you feel the change

It’s the last wave of summer
We’ll ever see again

This Big Old Car

This big old car, gonna take us home
This big old car, gonna take us home
Gonna take us home, to what we know so well
This big old car, gonna take us home

Gonna take us all the way to Brisbane
Take us all the way to Cairns
Take us back across to Katherine
To the Fitzroy River sands
Gonna see the Indian Ocean
And we’ll turn around and then
This big old car’ll take us home again

(Chorus)

Ain’t got no rattle free transmission
Ain’t no good around the town
There’s no fitted air condition
We just roll the windows down
And slam another tape in
And turn it up and pray
This big old car gonna take us all the way

This big old car, gonna take us home
Gonna take us all the way and back
However far we like to roam
Gonna take us all the way to heaven
Take us all the way to hell
And then this big old car gonna get us home.

This Time Round

I watch you slide out of bed
When the night has gone
I watch you tilt your head
The earings go on

This time round
This time round
I’m gonna get it right
This time round

I look at all the years
The chances I had
I look at all the ways I always seemed to find
For turning good into bad

This time round
This time round
I’m gonna get it right
This time round

Water Into Wine

City papers blow around me
As the mornin’ hits the sky
On the ocean ships are waitin’ high
So am I

City sweeper goes around me
He don’t need no reason why
If I don’t seem in a hurry now
I’ve arrived

Come on baby won’t you save me
Turn this water into wine
Love, emotion, like an ocean
How can I hold back the tide

Baby meet me on the corner
When you hear that whistle blow
If I don’t seem like I oughta
The one you used to know

Come on baby won’t you save me
Turn this water into wine
Love, emotion, like an ocean
How can I hold back the tide

I’m on high ground
Put this weight down
Of one thing you can be sure
On the ocean ships are sailin’
But I don’t need them anymore

Come on baby won’t you save me
Turn this water into wine
Love, emotion, like an ocean
How can I hold back the tide

Come on baby won’t you save me
Turn this water into wine
Love, emotion, like an ocean
Turn this water into wine

Way Down

Somebody tell meWhere did I go wrong
Oh, what a fool am I
Sometimes
You can feel you don’t belong
Wanna die

Way down
I’ve been all the way
And I know the reason why
Way down
Is the price I paid
Oh but now I realise

Somebody tell me
That you understand
Oh that I’m not alone
Sometimes
When you need a helpin? hand
Oh I know

Way down
I’ve been all the way
And I know the reason why
Way down
Is the price I paid
Oh but now I see a light
Way down

Way down
I?ve been all the way
And I know the reason why
Way down
Is the price I paid
Oh but now I realise

Way down
I?ve been all the way
And I know the reason why
Way down
Is the price I paid
I don’t wanna go no more
Way down

Yakuza Girls

Well, its the last call at the fag end
Of the wrong bar at the bad end
Of the wrong side of a dog town
On a one way road that takes you down
From a shit creek, and back again
The doors swing open and they all come in
From the arse end of a sick world
A bus load of Yakuza girls

Yakuza girls, chicks of doom
Fanning out to cover the room
Smokin’ Luckys, climbin the bar
Drinkin’ saki from an old fruit jar

Yakuza girls, 12 o’clock high
Fishnets all the way to Hawaii
Playin’ karioke and singin’ along
With the key words of a lock’n’loll song

Well, ya get to see ‘em all comin’ through this place
Every household name then forgotten face
Every fucked up, low down, pin tucked, rewound
Siliconed, pillsucker has been that ever found
Jesus in the bottom of a bottle, Yeah
I reckon I’d seen it all, but I swear
I never seen this much potential romance since
Lovelace Watkins split his pants

Yakuza girls, climbin’ the walls
Chewin’ on gum, grabbin’ my balls
And tellin’ me to cough, seein’ how far
They can pole dance off the end of the bar

Yakuza girls, doin’ the dog
With a yo-yo in and outa the bog
Who’s that haulin’ on a rubber glove
Yakuza girls, lookin’ for love.
