Lyrics

All Of Your Love
Like a flower needs the rain
Or a tiger needs to prey
Just like a drug needed to ease a pain
A level head to keep you sane
Or a player needs to play again
I know, there’s one thing I can’t do without
Like a drinker needs a fix
Or a user needs a hit
And I know, there’s one thing I can’t do without
Not that much essentially
That I want, that I need
But when I’m feeling down, you need to pick me up
Oh! I just need all of your love
Like the winter needs the sun
Desperation needs someone
And I know, there’s one thing that I know about
And I know, there’s one thing I can’t do without
Oh not that much essentially
That I want and that I need
But when I’m feeling down, you need to pick me up
Oh! I just need all of your love
Everything I Have To Give
Can’t you see now woman
How much it is you’re putting on me
I do my best to keep my cool
But right now I can hardly breathe
Gotta pull it all together
Every single bit
Move it up a gear and
Give everything I have to give
Can’t you see now honey
That I’m running outta time
Wearing me into the ground
I’m about to lose my mind
Falling apart at the seams, well I
I have to admit
Don’t know if I can take it, ’cause I
Gave everything I have to give
Everything I have to give
Oh yeah
Believe me I’m trying
But I’m hanging by a thread
There’s no denying
I’m about to lose my head
Oh yeah
Well did you know baby
I’m waking up in the midst of night
Messing me up altogether
Worrying me all the time
I ain’t got much left at all
Almost burnt down to the wick
Nothing left inside, ’cause
Given everything I have to give
Everything I have to give, yeah
Il Grande Mafioso
Late night, low lights, the air is thick
And your throat is dry
Bar girl, hair curled, neon lit
Liquor on the side
Playing dirty money
This is the place to find
No turning back though
Once you step inside
Cards dealt, hands held, give nothing away
Divert everyone’s eye
Hands wet, brow sweat, tempting fate
Stakes running high
You’ll need luck up your sleeve
If you wanna stay alive
Because the rules are there are none
If you can’t pay on time
Don’t you ever talk about it to anyone
Oh you have to believe
Don’t get in above your head now with nowhere to run
Don’t get in, don’t get in too deep
Don’t get in above your head now
Don’t get in too deep
Oh, too much is not enough
Thought you were on a roll
But you’ve been caught out with your guard down
The hand they dealt you they know
And you’re whisky talkin’
You’re out of control
It’s too late for walking
You got nowhere to go
To go.
Don’t you ever talk about it to anyone
Just pay up what’s agreed
You know you’re in above your head now with nowhere to run
You know you’re in too deep
Don’t you ever talk about it to anyone
Oh you have to believe
‘Cause you’re in above your head now with nowhere to run
You know you’re in, you know you’re in too deep
You know you’re in too deep
Won't Be Taken Down
All so often
She didn’t get it right
Always someone digging in the knife
She learnt through time
It’s their insecurities
She grew strong
Takes more than that to bleed
Everywhere she goes
Eyes burn into her skin
People judge but, they don’t know a thing
Deep inside
She knows her worth
She carries on, undeterred
All, all of her life
She’s had to deal with the jealous kind
She knows, she’s better than that
They won’t break her spirit
Oh not this time
Try to knock her down
Try to trip her up
Her fire is burning
Deep down inside
She’s gonna stand her ground
She’s gonna live her life
She won’t be taken down this time
Time
You never know just how long you’ve got
So don’t let it go to waste
Time will come and pass you by like a shot
If you can’t hold the pace
A few more greys, a few more lines appear
When did that come about?
All in all we don’t have all that long
Time quickly running out
Don’t let it run away
Run away
You can’t re-run the track
Can’t get it back along the way
So change tomorrow for today
All the plans that you mean to make
So called “problems” slow you down
The bucket list shouldn’t have to wait
Life is for living now
Friends you’ve had no longer around
So many things you never said
Nobody knows when the day will come
You gotta live without regret
Don’t let it run away
Run away
You can’t re-run the track
Can’t get it back along the way
So change tomorrow for today
Don’t let it run away
Run away, oh run away
Run away
Dishevelled
Smokey eyes and dressed to kill
In she walks, the room stands still
People talk, stop dead in their tracks
(I’m) watching it unfold from a stool at the back
Oh, the night is young
We’ve got time to play the scene out right
She’s got my mind running as wild as
The dragon tattooed on her thigh
Oh, dishevelled tonight
Tucked in a corner at the back of the room
Nobody wiser to what we’re up to
Just taking a few moments with a handful of love
Grinding to the movement ‘neath the table above
Oh, let’s get outta here
Oh, let’s neck that bottle of wine
Slip out amongst the chancers
Oh it’s closing time
Halfway dishevelled, alright
Dishevelled, alright
Back of the alley in a shadow of light
Up against the stonework of Pier 49
Sweat flows and dampens red hot skin
Every single moment burning within
Oh, hand in hand walking the streets
The aftermath of Saturday night
Blending in, shining beneath the full moon light
Oh, dishevelled alright
Dishevelled, alright
Troubled Soul (Intro)

Instrumental.

Kalina
A smile, hiding the pain inside
Feeling no worth from within
The bar she had set too high
Her life had yet to begin, (but)
Inside she’d come undone
Beauty taken so young
Who would have thought that
She’d ever be the one
For too long, all failed to see the signs
Over time it just broke her down
She said her last goodbye
To the love that was all around
If she’d just reached out her hand
We’ll never know what we could have done
But who would have thought that
She’d ever be the one
Fly high now
Your pain, gone away
Slow time down
Your memories here to stay
Handful Of Doubt
Like a coiled up spring
I’m ready to fly
I got a shortened temper
Maybe step aside
Boiling over
I need to vent some steam
Walls closing in
I can hardly breathe
I’m buckling down under load
I’m at the end of the road
Then you show me
It’s just a handful of doubt
Yeah you know me
You know me
And you show me how to work it out
Mind in a jumble
My head’s in a daze
Stuck in reverse
No forward gear engaged
Gotta keep above water
No sinking down
I need a four leaf clover
No way without
It’s got the better of me
I’m falling apart at the seams
Then you show me
It’s just a handful of doubt
Yeah you know me
You know me
And, you show me how to
Work it out
Right As Rain
Right as rain
Right as rain
Baby our love
You know our love
Is right as rain
You can’t run
You can’t hide
From the way that you feel
Baby, deep down inside
You need me
Like I need you
Nobody else, no no
Could ever do
Right as rain
Right as rain
Baby our love, you know our love
Is right as rain
Oh sometimes when the rain
Comes fallin’ down
You know it’s gonna wipe out
The whole damn town
But the one thing, baby
Everybody knows
You gotta have a little rain, yeah yeah
To help the flowers grow
Right as rain
Right as rain
Baby our love, you know our love
Is right as rain
The stronger the love
The stronger the pain
Oh baby our love, you know our love
Is right as rain
Just like a storm, baby
Out on the sea
So it is, baby
With you and me
You know the sun, baby
Is gonna shine again
Baby our love, you know our love
Is right as rain
Right as rain
Right as rain
Baby our love, you know our love
Is right as rain
The stronger the love
Oh the stronger the pain
Baby our love, you know our love
Is right as rain
Well you know our love, baby our love
Is right as rain

Other Part Of Me
When I’m feeling down
You know how to pick me up
Patience running out
You’ve always got enough
When I’m running into
A head on wind
When I’m destined to lose
You help me to win
One without the other
Is just incomplete
Yeah, you’re the other part of me
When I’m all alone
You’re not around
I feel like something’s missing, baby
Down in the lost and found, yeah
When I’m stuck in reverse
You ease my mind
When I can’t find the words
You’ve always got the time
You know we go together like the milk in your tea
Yeah, you’re the other part of me
You’re the other part of me
You’re the other part of me, yeah
Yeah baby, oh yeah
Oh you know you always have the answers
When I turn to you
When I’m chasing round in circles
You know just what to do
You know we go together like the rivers and the sea
You’re the other part of me, yeah, oh yeah
Stay
Need you more than ever
But I don’t think you need me
When we’re together
Don’t you know that you’re my remedy
I need some comfort, some peace of mind
Can’t you see I’m broken in two
Is a little bit of love so hard to find?
Can’t you see I need you?
So come on stay with me, stay with me,
Don’t leave me here on my own
So come on stay with me, stay with me
I don’t think that I can make it alone
Can’t you see, what it is that we got
Thought you could see it so well
So right for me but, you’re so not
You got me under your spell
Well if it has to be the end for us
Well if you’ve made up your mind
Let’s just pretend that it’s as good as it was
Just stay with me tonight
So come on stay with me, stay with me
Don’t leave me here on my own
So come on stay with me, stay with me
I don’t think that I can make it alone
Hold You To It
I been on the road for so long
Out here on my own
I don’t know how much more I can take
Just got off talking to you
On my telephone
You said hold out just a few more days
I just need all your loving tonight
But I know that it’s coming my way
I’m gonna hold you ’til the morning light
Oh baby, oh just you wait
I’m gonna hold you to it
Hold you to it
All the things that you said to me, yeah
I’m gonna hold you to it
Hold you to it
You ain’t getting off easily
Oh oh oh oh oh
I know that I can count on you
Oh oh oh oh oh
For the things, only you can do, yeah
I been holding it together, counting down the hours
But now I’m standing here at your door
You’re in that special number
The one that blows my mind
You know just what to do, that’s for sure
I’m gonna give you all my loving tonight
But I know, I won’t be wasting no time
I’m gonna hold you ’til the morning light
Yeah baby, oh just you wait
I’m gonna hold you to it
Hold you to it
All the things that you said to me, yeah
I’m gonna hold you to it
Hold you to it
You ain’t getting off easily
Oh oh oh oh oh
I know that I can count on you
Oh oh oh oh oh
For the things, only you can do, yeah
I’m gonna give you all my loving tonight
But I know, I won’t be wasting no time
I’m gonna hold you ’til the morning light
Yeah baby, oh just you wait, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
I’m gonna hold you to it
Hold you to it
All the things that you said to me
I’m gonna hold you to it
Hold you to it
You ain’t getting off easily
Oh oh oh oh oh
I know that I can count on you
Oh oh oh oh oh
For the things, only you can do, yeah
Baby!

Eyes Wide Open

Release Date : October 7, 2016
Format : CD

“Eyes Wide Open” is a bold, confident and accessible slice of contemporary blues-rock that promises to bring Aynsley yet more accolades as well as introduce his genre-blending sound to a new audience, building on the 100,000 albums he’s already sold worldwide.

The British guitarist says that this raw, energetic album is a return to his roots; a record that at its heart boasts all the grit of traditional blues.

“I wanted to keep the raw edginess and energy of a band,” says Aynsley. “So that meant minimal takes and going with the ones that had the most spirit and passion over those with technical perfection. To me, music isn’t supposed to be perfect. It’s supposed to grab you and move you both emotionally and physically; it’s supposed to connect with you.”

“Eyes Wide Open” seals Aynsley’s reputation for adroitly blending blues and rock, pop and even a smattering of soul. Hooky melodies dovetail seamlessly with blazing blues solos that are as passionate as they are tasteful. Like every musician of weight, this album also reveals Aynsley’s ability to tell a story. Each track paints a picture, exposing an emotional landscape with the insight of a fine artist: “The world never stops and so much happens around us – some of it resonates with you, some of it doesn’t. This album is written about the world as I see it, through eyes wide open.”
