Just Because you can I see your smile and know your eyes You know that I realise Every you time you turn away You leave a sign for me to say Just because you can, just because you will, just because you won’t Won’t get dragged in screwed up Screwed up with my face in the dust It’s more than you’re worth Just because you say I’m killing time And your friends are no friends of mine Won't I’ll lay down dumb I'd rather take it and hold it and cherish it my love This feeling my love I give you life and want to say Condone your weakness under file away Every night and every day And all the words you have to say Just because the sun doesn’t shine all day, Just because the rain doesn’t always wash it away Doesn’t mean I’ll block out the stars in your eyes If they don’t glow bright Just because you can, just because it’s there, just because it’s free Please don’t take it my love Cause this feeling I got, I just got my eyes above This feeling my love Just because you can, just because you will, just because you won’t Won’t get dragged in screwed up Screwed up with my face in the dust It’s more than you’re worth Just because

You Don't Wanna Know I wanna blow your mind part for the very first time Yes a friend like me who's so accommodating And nice I thought it was an ignorant But do you wanna see it, and I know you can't believe it Cause you built a career on a framework called fear And you don't wanna know She's such a clever girl well read I thought she was a modern one Open to new things not a stone age one with a big hole that she can never fill up Cause look at what you've got, and what you've done and how you feel, you Thought you wanted the least it was out of your reach and didn't wake to try

The Crow 03:05
The Crow Birds fly south and the leaves fall down Upon the stolen autumn ground The sun has gone and the crow flies in To usher in the new born king Upon the branch in the sullen sky Like a statue way up high But why should I leave my nest for you? Cause I built it up strong And it’s not for you It’s wintertime that comes And you won’t escape the call Cause it won’t go away So natural you can hear them say Lie naked fields on a fertile land That have shed their crops that were in demand Now tunnel down and find your warmth Before Jack Frost comes around Jack Frost with his thorny crown, Feeling like the king of the town But why should I leave my nest for you? Cause I built it up strong And it’s not for you It’s wintertime that comes And you won’t escape the call Cause it won’t go away So natural you can hear him say -------------------------------------------------

4.Trying This Time She came, with a giving loving That’s mined From her own special quarry shining I wanna pick you up Run around and tell the crowd Enough is enough I tell you what it’s all about Someone was seeking louder With nothing to hide Up on her knees Trying this time Gift wrapped, a crazy beauty surprise Swimming against your stone wall tide I wanna pick you up Run around and tell the crowd Enough is enough I tell you what it’s all about Someone was seeking louder With nothing to hide Up on her knees Trying this time

You’re Doing it Well Got your job, do it well, don't complain Got your head down in the lashing rain You’re cleaning the windows with the Midas touch Move so well, look so free Got a sort of spirituality with a common touch You travel around like a charming man Rob, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well Oh God, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well Built your house, made your dream You hang out in an Anderson shelter down in the garden You’re keeping it real with your Princess of Love. Rob, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well Oh God you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well Who would have guessed that? Oh brother I know Now I can say that.. Rob, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well Oh God you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well Oh Rob, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well Oh God you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well, you’re doing it well (Dedicated to Robert and Laura)

You’ve Got What it Takes Sorting him out in the night, in vacant lots of darkness, shining truth aloud With his pencilled-in eyes so light, half-man, half-witch of a stranger - wants out So he called him a man, set in the sand exuding young one Swayed and obeyed by the words that they bake And he talks up his face, cheers when he makes the songs that he longs They’re out on the stage, these brothers in arms And he borrowed a mask and jewels from the past, he knows how to gaze Checked out his bait in the garden of play You like the sun: shining on, Taking you out tonight, putting over there, to fright to fright to fright to fight to fright to fright We're taking you out tonight putting you over there, pushing you out, to fright to fright to fight to fright tonight Taking you out tonight putting you over there, pushing you out to fright to fright to fight to fright Taking you out tonight putting you over there, pushing you down to fright to fright to fight to fright Taking you out tonight pushing you over there, pushing you down pushing you over to fright to fright to fight to fright We're taking you out tonight pushing you over there, pushing you down, to fright to fright to fight to fright Taking you out tonight pushing you over there, pushing you down pushing you up, to fright to fright to fright Sorting him up in the night, in vacant lots of darkness shinning truth aloud And the hours of days, and days of the years, groomed for heightened sense of course Pin upt and clear He’s informed by his way and not by hearsay and views of the ones He left on their arse in the god-ridden past He’s a veritable man with red drops on his hands, this sage in a cage Salt of the earth that all misunderstood You like the sun: shining on, (Repeat) I feel you in me is that so bad to say? You’ve got what it takes You’ve got what it takes You’ve got what it takes

Wrap Them Up 03:19
7. Wrap Them Up It’s a new life, an on-the-road life An on-the-road life And you’re already booked where you want to be now You’re far away now, not at work And home is just a four-letter word now Wrap them up, wrap them up safe safe safe safe safe safe safe safe Wrap them up, wrap them up safe safe safe safe safe safe safe safe It’s different here, not the same Compare it all as much as you really want to now It’s a real life from a rough guide A lonely planet discovery for all life Wrap them up, wrap them up safe safe safe safe safe safe safe safe Wrap them up, wrap them up safe safe safe safe safe safe safe safe Wrap them up, wrap them up

Victorious 04:43
Victorious You took the wood while I stoked the fire, was your desire And you used me like you’ve never done before You took all you could, now it was understood And I know you don't respect me anymore It's not worth trying, cause you asked for higher And you lost it all, was given to you You took all you could, you know it’s understood You took all you can and you’re victorious You feel cheated and ashamed, so you go away To a far away hill where distant sounds… so sweet It’s hard but it’s true, ‘cause it’s a sacrifice To the driving mind that needs a stopping soon Now I’m going away and you’re going to stay To work on the image a little more How can you feel it the love that you have? Here’s a story and it's not going to hide Prying open your life Feeling the point you felt was wanting You took all you can and you’re victorious Love is whole and you don’t exist, because you resist Just unstrap the dirt that was holding you together You took all you can and you’re victorious You’ve just got it all now you’re victorious You just take it all now you’re victorious David John Hull: acoustic guitars, vocal, bass, Wah-wah guitar Allen Devine: electric guitar Snorre Schwarz: drums The Man: part production, keyboards Christian Betz: production

The Herd 03:11
The Herd I feel the herd inside me You run along, play, follow the pack Don’t you know I’m on your back? Can you help me, please? I’m about to unfold Don’t you know I’m not that sold? Come on take a ride with me I feel the herd inside me Maple syrup, sugar candy It’s wrapped round your centre Like a sweet straight jacket I’m a sour of sort’s bitter sensation Life’s too short for contemplation Come on don’t suck up to all you’re given Am I preaching to the converted Or is this an age thing? Don’t you know there’s no ideal heaven? We say we’re different and others the same In their house we’re all to blame Come on it doesn’t matter in the end

Something so Real Here’s a tune I feel so taken Leaves a line that comes to awaken Was it something I said or in my head? It’s all so mad from day to day Mixture of glad and sad that stays Was it something I said or in my head Like to know just what to say When words they come and they float away Something so real I can’t explain Something so real I can’t explain Something so real I can’t explain Sitting back another day Daydreaming time away Was it something I said or in my head Like to know just what to say When words they come and they float away Something so real I can’t explain Something so real I can’t explain Something so real I can’t explain

Out To Sea 03:05
Out to Sea Wasn’t it love that we had or a shared moment so bad? A thin line to a thicker place so mad Or just some false emotions Wasn’t it love that was had? When she came along with her flaunting style Her stoney magic and her face like tragic, couldn’t stand it She had her hand up his back pulling his strings She bottled up his fantasies And shipped them out She really shipped them out to sea Felt she was filling in all the gaps Between the distance that he had Getting on a fast track to some strange promotion Felt like she was filling in the gaps When she came along with her flaunting style Her stony magic and her face like tragic couldn’t stand it She had her hand up his back pulling his strings She bottled up his fantasies And shipped them out She really shipped them out to sea People say you can’t blame her Cause what she did was for love At least that’s what she said But try not to frame her But all she did was to run all around in his head

1959 02:54
1959 There’s a photo in my mind, doing fine 1959 The two of them flying the flag of a nation Post-war born country salvation Golden rings a’worn adoring Do the jive and all its glory All of love is in your heart You shared it out and played the part Our generation is really out of key It’s all about me, oh my poor heart What if a man should fall from the sky? Asking questions about do or die Do you want her for herself? Or do you need her for self-help? What is it you want with him? Is he someone to be seen with? All of love is in your heart You shared it out and played the part Our generation is really out of key It’s all about me, oh my poor heart
