Track Name: This boy
This Boy wants you to know
Life is scale and arpeggio
It’s all the same wherever you go
And the world spins around and around

This boy wants you to know
That love is the place where all rivers flow
It’s hard as nails and softer than snow
And the world spins around and around
I’d ask you to dance if I dared to
I might even ask for a kiss
I’d ask you to walk if you cared to
Beneath the moon on a night like
With me on a night like this

This boy finds it hard to be kind
When the world is so cruel and people so blind
We’re searching for something
That’s so hard to find
And the world spins around and around

This boy wants you to know
He will follow wherever you go
The highest high or way down
When the world spins around and around
Track Name: Green eyes
Speak to me only with your eyes
I can’t bear to hear a single sound
The world could come to an end right now
And I wouldn’t realise
If you speak to me only with your eyes

So tell me that you love me without speaking
Let me see your pretty green eyes shine
I’ll spend my life believing that everything is fine
If you let me see your pretty green eyes shine

And don’t let anyone trick you into leaving
Your place on earth is right here by my side
No matter what they say, don’t you let it slip away
‘Cause I’m gonna love you till my dying day

So tell me that you love me without speaking
Whisper to me only with your eyes
I’d gladly watch the sun come falling straight out of the skies
If you tell me that you love me with your eyes
Track Name: Hollington girls
Those Hollington girls
Love you once then slip away
Biding time between their accidents
To help you dream another day
Those Hollington girls
Young as children in the street
Red, red lips and auburn curls
High-heeled shoes upon their feet

Take me back down to Hollington
Before the sun it clears the sky
You know that I believe in angels
When I watch those Hollington girls go by

Those Hollington girls
Hunt in bars late at night
Eyes peeled back like predators
Waiting for a chance to bite
Those Hollington girls
Dance in circles beneath the lights
Hearts as warm as summer beaches
Legs as long as summer nights

Those Hollington girls
Pushing prams along the way
Broken hearts and broken promises
Dreaming of a better day
Track Name: Hey Mr Walker!
Hey Mr Walker you know that it’s true
I love your daughter
And she says she loves me too
We’re gonna pack up and flee
To sunny Italy just her and me

I think that the weather’s
Good down there this time of year
At least that’s what I hear
You wouldn’t know it by me
‘Cause every day’s sunny
As long as she’s near

Hey Mr Walker
I hear that you’re missing New Zealand
It’s a long, long way away from here
It’s a twenty-four hour flight
With two stops over night for a bottle of beer

Hey Mr Walker
Isn’t life hard sometimes?
Two daughters and a wife
But still those troubles in life
Never disappear
Track Name: On Malvern way again
We met one day in summer
On the beach you held my hand
We took a taxi to the ridge
Our pockets full of pebbles and sand
You held me and we kissed again
And the rain came pouring down
And we watched the lights come on in Hastings town
We walked to your place together
You stopped me at the door
You said that love was not a place
Where you had been before
Then you opened up and let me in
You said that I could stay
And I stayed with you forever on Malvern Way

Well the rich they’ve got their diamonds
And their houses are bigger than ours
They’ve got elegant suits and no holes in their boots
And they smoke big expensive cigars
But their lives are worth nothing Angel
In their palaces let them remain
‘Cause I’d rather be with you my dear
On Malvern Way again

Well twenty years down the line
Three children they had grown
And forty years down the line
Their kids too had grown
And then of course there’s great-grand children
And though the toil it made us moan
It was a little piece of heaven we were shown

For fifty-eight years you were my life
When sad I thought of you
Our love it doubled happiness
And divided the bad in two
And I’ll never forget those happy times
On the beach they’d run and play
And we’d walk home together to Malvern Way

Well the rich they’ve got their diamonds
And their houses are bigger than ours
They’ve got elegant suits and no holes in their boots
And they drive big expensive cars
But their lives are worth nothing Angel
Wealth is a ball and chain
And I’d rather be with you my dear
On Malvern Way again

Well I suppose in life that all things
One day must come to an end
And I’m glad it’s you that went first
My very dearest friend
‘Cause I wouldn’t wish this pain on you
On our anniversary day
To be walking alone on sunny Malvern Way
So tonight I’m gonna go swimming
Beneath the stars and beneath the moon
And all my worries and troubles
They will be over soon
And I’ll swim until I find you
And you’ll free me of my pain
And we’ll walk together on Malvern Way again


Well the rich they’ve got their diamonds
And their houses are bigger than ours
They’ve got elegant suits and no holes in their boots
But they might as well be living on Mars
‘Cause their lives are worth nothing Angel
In their palaces let them remain
‘Cause I’d rather be with you my dear
On Malvern Way again
Track Name: Rebecca
Rebecca, Rebecca
Won’t you let down your hair
I’m tired and tethered and lonely
The night is but young
Though my heart has begun
To yearn for you and you only
Outside the weather is cold
And I know that you’re young and I’m old
But Rebecca I will love you till I die

Rebecca, Rebecca
Youthful beauty so fair
I long to see you sway to the music
I’ll give you my heart
Like I’ve given you my soul
Though I know that you’ll only abuse it
But this drink’s got the best of me now
And I know you don’t care anyhow
But Rebecca I will love you till I die

Rebecca, Rebecca
I’ve no money to spare
I’m toothless, bedraggled and weary
I’m penniless old, and crippled and cold
But there’s no need for you to fear me
I’ve travelled this world all my life
All I want is a kiss not a wife
And Rebbecca I will love you till I die

Rebecca, the stars are on fire
And I’m floating on wings of desire
I’m far, far above the pier and the town
I look like a beggar and I walk like a clown
I’m half way to heaven don’t let me back down

Rebecca, Rebecca won’t you let down your hair
The bell’s gone and everyone’s leaving
In a world full of darkness and death and despair
You’ve a light for me to believe in
So kiss me cheek once goodbye
Or at least wipe this tear from my eye
And Rebecca I will love you till I die
Track Name: A
When the night is dark
When I’m in your arms
I feel safe and warm
I feel free from harm
You bring me back to my senses
Take me away from myself
When everything’s wrong
You’re all that’s strong
And I’ll never love anybody else

When you’re worried honey
When you’re hearts filled with fear
When God’s joke isn’t funny
Come on and lean on me dear
And I’ll bring you back to your senses
Take you away from yourself
When everything’s wrong
I’ll try and be strong
And I’ll never love anyone else

When I am with you
When your hand is in mine
Skies are always blue
The weather is always fine
You bring me back to my senses
Take me away from myself
When everything’s wrong
You’re all that’s strong
And I’ll never love anybody else
