Lyrics

Home

A single candle lights the room we’re in
In the flicker I can see the texture of your skin
Your eyes glisten as time stands still
I can feel you breathing against the air from out the window so chill
And I know, oh I know
That now I can’t walk away
Over me you have a power, this is how it’s supposed to be
You got me from inside, in your arms tonight is home to me

A single moment undisturbed
That could last forever, that could say a thousand words
Touch like a whisper from somewhere within
Some kind of connection, yeah so strong like the wind, like the wind
And I know where I belong
Whether near or far away
Over me you have a power, there’s nowhere I’d rather be
Got me from inside, in your arms tonight is home to me
Well that’s home to me, yeah

In my bubble I can hide away
Close the door behind me where you keep me safe
Watch you sleeping as I lie awake
You give me something, helps me float away
Float away

Broke

Everybody talks about
What the future holds
In the papers and on the TV
News on the radio

The state we’re in
Hard to know, what we’re heading for
Still we save, we’re trying
‘Cause there’s nothing left any more

Money, getting harder now to make it
Nobody, can afford to let it go
Has to be, what you’re offered gotta take it
Everybody wanna know, where did the money go?

When a million shattered pieces
Is all that remains
Of a system that offered too much
But could never sustain
Some out there losing everything
They got nowhere to go
And the ones who saw it coming
Just don’t wanna know
The state we’re in
Hard to know what we’re heading for
So we save, keep trying
‘Cause there’s nothing left anymore

Money, is getting harder now to make it
Nobody, can afford to let it go
Has to be what you’re offered got to take it
Everybody wanna know
Where did the money go?

Insatiable

A hunger addiction
Got a one track mind
For her sweet disposition
The look in her eye
I should be sleeping
But my mind’s alive
So give it up
Insatiable love

Like a drug inside me
Taking over my mind
Kinda gets me to thinking
Any moment in time
Backed in to a corner
A yearn I can’t deny
So give it up
Insatiable love

I can’t get enough
I can’t enough
Can’t get enough
Insatiable love

Oh well the moonlight is shining
Shadows dance on the wall
Beads of sweat on your body
Slowly fall to the floor
You can feed my obsession
I’ll still be wanting more
More of your love
Insatiable love

I can’t get enough
I can’t enough
Can’t get enough
Insatiable love
(Repeat x2)

Inside Out

Caught in the firing line again
They wanna get inside my head
Filling the space I need to breathe
Why can’t they see

How can they say the things they do
Criticise me, treat me like a fool
Tell me just what it is I need
When they don’t even know me

‘Coz they can’t just seem to wanna put it down
Yet still they preach knowing nothing about
What makes me tick when only you’re the one yeah
The only one, who knows me inside out

Not content to leave alone
Talk about me like I’m their very own
They seem to think they got a right
To step into my life

‘Coz the vultures seem to come from all around
They all seem so intent to bring you down
They say they really care but really you’re the one yeah
The only one who knows me inside out
Inside out, yeah inside out

‘Coz they can’t just seem to wanna put it down
Yet still they preach knowing nothing about
What makes me tick when only you’re the one yeah
The only one, who knows me inside out

Free

I remember laughing, with tears in my eyes
At the things you used to say
Sitting over coffee, whenever you’d be passing by
When we’d just talk the hours away
An eye for a bargain, always worth a look
You found me the guitar I’d never sell
Always the mender, whatever it took
To give it back to me ringing like a bell

Oh how quickly you slipped away
All the things I never got to say, yeah

Now you’re free, you lived a life to the full right to the end (I remember)
Memories, of times gone past ‘til I see you again, I know I’ll see you again

All about money was (to you) a means to an end
Just like the car that you drove
To you it was nothing, to lend a hand to a friend
No limit to how far you’d go
Phased by nothing, even in your darkest times
You just kept yourself locked away
You fought like a lion, the hardest fight of your life
Lived your last days on the crest of a wave

Oh how quickly you slipped away
All the things I never got to say, yeah

Now you’re free, you lived a life to the full right to the end (I remember)
Memories, of times gone past ‘til I see you again, I know I’ll see you again

Sugar

Well you taste so sweet baby, you’re like chocolate covered cake
You give me all I can eat baby, serve it up any way
I dip my fingers in your honey
Any time of the day

The way you move your hips baby, the way you shake that thing
With your cherry flavour lips, and your marzipan skin
I get so hooked on your sugar baby
I can’t keep my craving in, yeah

When I’m not around you, I get to thinking all the time
‘Cause you know you got something, to drive me outta my mind

Early in the morning, late in the evening too
I got a sweet tooth for ya baby, sweeter than honey dew, oh yeah
And with all that sugar baby
You know just what to do

Sugar sugar baby
I can’t get enough of you

You Make It Real

There’s so much craziness surrounding me
So much going on that it gets hard to breathe
When all my faith has gone, you bring it back to me
You make it real for me

When I’m not sure of my priorities
When I’ve lost sight of where I’m meant to be
Like holy water washing over me
You make it real for me

And I am running to you baby
You are the only one who saves me
That’s why I’ve been missing you lately
‘Cause you make it real for me yeah

When my head is strong, but my heart is weak
I’m full of arrogance and uncertainty
When I can’t find the words, you teach my heart to speak
You make it real for me, yeah, yeah

And I am running to you baby
You are the only one who saves me
That’s why I’ve been missing you lately
‘Cause you make it real for me yeah

Everybody’s talking in words I don’t understand
You’ve got to be the only one who knows just who I am
You’re shining in the distance
I hope I can make it through
‘Cause the only place I want to be is right back home with you

And I am running to you baby
You are the only one who saves me
That’s why I’ve been missing you lately
‘Cause you make it real for me yeah

Oh you make it real for me, yeah yeah

Feeling Good

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day
It’s a new life and I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom on the trees you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day
It’s a new life and I’m feeling good

Dragonfly in the sun you know what I mean
Butterflies having fun and you know how I feel
Sleep in peace when day is done
And you know how I feel
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world and I’m feeling good
Yes I’m feeling good

And I’m feeling good
Yes I’m feeling good
You know I’m feeling good, oh yeah
And I’m feeling good

Possession

Possession of your possessions
I do believe is nine tenths of the law
You better hold on tight to what you’ve got
Before that woman ain’t your woman no more
Turn your back just for a second
Somebody trying to steal her away
Ready or not they want what you got
And nothing’s gonna stand in their way

You could take all of my money
The keys to my car right outta my hand
Because it makes no matter without that stuff
I’d still be a richer man
But for what you can’t pacify me
The only one thing that I need
You’re trying your luck, you ain’t giving up
Can’t you see that what’s taken is what you’re trying to take from me
Possession has got a hold of me

Can’t you see that what’s taken is what you’re trying to take from me
Possession has got a hold of me

So we shoot a little pool in the back room
I still got her taste on the tip of my tongue
I see a man, he’s walking on over
I know what is happening before it’s begun
He wastes no time to get started
It’s happening right in front of me
Oh he shakes my hand don’t he understand that tonight
You know she’s coming home with me

Possession has got a hold on me, oh yeah
Oh can’t you see that what’s taken is what you’re trying to take from me
Oh can’t you see that what’s taken is what you’re trying to take from me
Oh possession has got a hold of me

Hyde 2612

I’m not feeling quite myself, something’s gone outta sync
There’s a cog inside my head needs relocating and slotting in
It all looks a little strange like I’ve been here before
But things are not in place, somebody moved the door

Who is this man in front of me stained with nicotine?
He claims he’s my superior and it’s 1973
Whose own way of policing, ain’t doing it by the book
Settling most endeavours with a healthy right hook
For him the word compassion’s not in his vocabulary
Trying it got me back “Don’t go all Dorothy on me”

Wake, wake up
To another day with the sheriff trying to show me the way
Come on now wake, wake up
Wake up and smell the cocoa, I’m still here, I guess I ain’t going home today

Speeding round the streets, heavy on the brakes
Taking bribes, planting evidence to clear the scum away
Bets on a Party 7, fighting for my pride
The only way to show him, that I’m right this time
Done and dusted by teatime, his gut paving the way
Another off the streets, another collar put away

Wake, wake up
To another day with the sheriff trying to show me the way
Come on now wake, wake up
Wake up and smell the cocoa, I’m still here, I guess I ain’t going home today

Today, not today
I ain’t going home today
Today, not today
I ain’t going home today

Impossible

You’re so terrible at being good
Uncontrollable, you read me like an open book
Because you know that you’re a deviant acting this way
You know it turns me on and makes me want to stay
When you know, that I’ve got to go

Undeniable, I can’t walk away
It’s unstoppable, when you’re wanting your way
I know just what you want even before you begin
But I’m secretly hoping for a last minute thing
When you know that I’ve got to go

It’s impossible, impossible

Even if I try to resist your way
You only take a minute to ingratiate
Unpunctual I’m known because I’m always late
I know I’m just as bad I know I’m half to blame

It’s impossible, impossible
It’s impossible, impossible

Straight Talkin' Woman

I got a straight talkin’ woman
She’s gonna give it to ya straight
I got a straight talkin’ woman
She’s gonna give it to ya straight
She’ll tell it how it is and she
Mean every word she say

Some like their women un-opinionated
But impartial it’s more complicated
But a straight talkin’ woman
The kind I understand
Beat about no bush, no
Let you know just where you stand
Alright

She don’t take no jive from no sharpened tongue
She tells it how it is she gets the job done
Straight talkin’ woman
She knows just where it’s at
To fight her corner
You’ll wanna give the best that you got
Oh I got a straight talkin’ woman
I got a straight talkin’ woman
Straight talkin’ woman
I got a straight talkin’ woman
She’ll tell it how it is and she means every word she say
