No History
[Judie Tzuke / David P Goodes]


I didn’t mean the words I said but now they’re out there, I can’t make them go away.
I saw the pain in your eyes when I apologized but it was already too late.
Lost in the knowledge, that I am the fool; because I know with them I moved further from you.
I wish that you were my first, I wish I was your last.
I wish and I wish I could forget our past.
I dream of you and me and how we could be,
I dream and I dream, we have no history.
Nobody’s perfect but we were so close; if we didn’t look we might never know the truth.
Back when we didn’t see more than this minute, a place where it was only us living in it,
before all the doubt and fear came down like a cloud.
I wish that you were my first, I wish I was your last. I wish and I wish we could forget our past.
I dream of you and me and what we could be, I dream and I dream.
We have no history, we have no history.
I wish that you were my first, I wish I was your last. I wish and I wish we could forget our past.
I dream of you and me and what we could be, I dream and I dream.
I wish that you were my first, I wish I was your last. I wish and I wish we could forget our past.
I dream of you and me and what we could be, I dream and I dream.
We have no history, we have no history.
I wish and I wish. We have no history.
I wish and I wish. We have no history.

Demons
[Judie Tzuke / David P Goodes]


Everyone around me is telling me to not look back, they say I’m acting like I’m under an imaginary attack.
But how could they know where my mind will go, it’s not because we're friends, I want to visit it all again.
I need to feel it once more so I can break it up and smash it down.
I have to rise above the nightmare and leave it where it can’t be found.
And if I can’t move on I’ll be stuck inside my private hell. It’s always banging on my door its always waiting there to ring my bell.
Mark my boundaries making sure I check the locks. I’m trying to play the part of me that you like even when I’m not.

Just, how could you know where my mind will go?
It’s not cause were friends, I want to visit it all again. I need to feel it once more so I can break it up and smash it down.
I have to rise above the nightmare and leave it where it can’t be found and if I can’t move on
I’ll just be stuck inside my private hell.
It’s always banging on my door its always waiting there to ring my bell.
It has a hold over me, it’s my history calling and I can’t get away from the fear that I’m falling down.
I watch myself trying to fight and let go but it’s here in my spirit like a vulture I know;

I understand that there’s nowhere to hide, it’s just me and my demons trying to stay alive, stay alive.
I need to feel it once more so I can break it up and smash it down.
I have to rise above the nightmare and leave it where it can’t be found and if I can’t move on
I’ll just be stuck inside my private hell.
It’s always banging on my door, it’s always waiting there to ring my bell.

Turn the Page
[Judie Tzuke / Ben Mark]


I’ve been keeping my eyes open wide, taking everything life throws at me in my stride.
I’m listening to the story’s I’m told, I’m watching and waiting as the secrets unfold.
Everything is possible that much I know, stood still in the light as it comes and it goes
and nothing you can say will make me stay away; if you follow where I lead, better keep up with me.
Though I can’t tell what happens next, it’s all there in the words that I read.
Turn the page, another adventure that I will make mine.
Turn the page, I have got all that I need here in this time and this place.
I’m scared of looking too far behind me and I don’t want to see what’s ahead; so, I bury my
face in the comfort of the moment, it’s a place I like to go, somewhere no one else knows.
Though I can’t tell what happens next, it’s all there in the words that I read.
Turn the page, another adventure that I will make mine.
Turn the page, I have got all that I need here in this time and this place.

Strange Days
[Tzuke/Goodes]


So, I’m talking with you and nothing’s making sense. What’s going on?
I thought you knew me well, I was hoping that you’d get what’s wrong.
Though I’m still holding on. I’m getting tired.
Time moves so slow; if it doesn’t happen soon, I’m sure I can wait; I might let go.
Like a wheel that won’t roll, I’m not turning. They cut out my heart but it’s still hurting.
These are strange days.
So, you’re telling me stuff that I don’t want to hear… Lately.
Can’t control anything inside of my hands; You can’t save me.
Crawling round in the dark, can’t find a way, out of here.
I wish the drumming would stop, so there could be rain when the storm clears.
Like a wheel that won’t roll, I’m not turning. They cut out my heart but it’s still hurting.
Drugs won’t kill the pain, keeps on burning. These are strange days, when nothing’s working.
Who is going to be the one that tells me that this is real life?
Caught in the confusion of what’s wrong, what’s right?
These are strange days.
Like a wheel that won’t roll, I’m not turning. They cut out my heart but it’s still hurting.
Drugs won’t kill the pain, keeps on burning. These are strange days when nothing’s working.

Venus
[Tzuke/Kearns/Russell]


Here at the window, I’m looking out through misty rain and grey skies.
The seasons changing, I feel it changing, I’m going to kiss the cold goodbye.
There you are, you bring the sun. Wash over me and lift me up.
There you are, your smiling eyes, with you, I can believe in anything.
Venus is alive.
Venus is alive.
Days blend into weeks without you here. Clouds throw shadows across my face.
I’m still waiting, I’m waiting ‘til a ray of light falls on this place.
There you are, you bring the sun, wash over me and lift me up;
there you are, your smiling eyes. With you, I can believe in anything.
Venus is alive.
Venus is alive.
You throw a lifeline to my dreams; you mended where I came apart at the seams.
I remember how it was before you came, I won’t go there again.
There you are, you bring the sun. Wash over me and lift me up.
There you are, your smiling eyes, with you, I can believe in anything.
Venus is alive.
Venus is alive.

Broken
[Tzuke/Eccleston]


Isn’t it about time our cards were on the table and isn’t it about time we learned to face the
truth? What are we going to do about this love that isn’t working?
What are we going to do now that the rain is through the roof?
This game has got to stop, throwing in the towel doesn’t help us out a lot.
Words can be our wings or bring us crashing to the ground.
Either way it’s time, to put it right, to draw a line.
Stop playing with my heart, telling me it’s ok when we both know that it’s not.
It’s never going to be again.
Now that we've made our bed, we can’t stay undercover.
When all of the things we’ve said, are shouting in the sheets.
When are we going to wake up from this dream, that’s now a nightmare?
What are we going to do now that we can’t afford to sleep?
This game has got to stop, throwing in the towel doesn’t help us out a lot.
Words can be our wings or bring us crashing to the ground.
Either way, it’s time, to put it right, to draw a line.
Stop playing with my heart, telling me it’s ok when we both know that it’s not.
It’s never going to be again. Mend these broken bones.
Stop playing with my heart, telling me it’s ok when we both know that it’s not.
It’s never going to be again. Fix this broken home!
This game has got to stop, throwing in the towel doesn’t help us out a lot.
Words can be our wings or bring us crashing to the ground.
Either way, it’s time, to put it right, to draw a line.
Stop playing with my heart, telling me it’s ok when we both know that it’s not.
It’s never going to be again. Fix this broken home!

Shangri-La
[Judie Tzuke / David P Goodes]


Have I got it so wrong? Should we turn the car around?
Are you getting tired of driving, now the wheels are slowing down?
Thought that we were in a higher place, somewhere we would both be safe.
This road is crumbling, turning into sand and we haven’t reached our
Shangri-La or Promised Land.
I don’t ever want to waste another minute
How do we get up there? I’m not sure you really care at all.
It’s like I’m taking all the chances, hoping for a curtain call.
I can tell I’m falling behind. don’t want to let go and find,
this road is crumbling, turning into sand and we haven’t reached our
Shangri-La or Promised Land.
I feel like I’m losing everything I thought I’d found.
You tell me is this our Waterloo or solid ground.
I don’t ever want to waste another minute.
Don’t want to live in a world without love in it.

Nothing on my Mind
[Tzuke/Goodes]


I could pretend that it’s ok. I could pretend that I’m not angry.
I could believe you meant no wrong. I could believe this is the worst you’ve done.
But I don’t want to think about you right now and I don’t need to know if you’re feeling
down.
There’s nothing on my mind but the sun today, I don’t want to go there.
I don’t want to play your dirty games, your nasty ways. There’s nothing on my mind but the
sun today.
You don’t know anything about me; because I can defend myself alright and nothing you do
can make this better.
I’ve given in and thrown the fight trying to mend it just makes it harder.
And I’m not going to talk about you right now, I’ve got no more to say and the feelings
gone.
There’s nothing on my mind but the sun today. I don’t want to go there. I don’t want to play
your dirty games, your nasty ways. There’s nothing on my mind but the sun today.
Nothing you can do that will make me stay, because you’re going nowhere.
You should know I don’t care, what a shame but you’re to blame.
There’s nothing on my mind but the sun today.
Don’t you hesitate walking away because the pleasure will be mine
and there are much better things I can do with my precious time.
There’s nothing on my mind but the sun today. I don’t want to go there. I don’t want to play
your dirty games, your nasty ways. There’s nothing on my mind but the sun today.
Nothing you can do that will make me stay, because you’re going nowhere.
You should know I don’t care, what a shame but you’re to blame.
There’s nothing on my mind but the sun today.
You don’t know anything about me

Never Mine
[Tzuke/Mark]


There’s a cloud above my head, I can’t see it but I feel it’s raining on me and my reasons to
stay here, they’re excuses, I’m just scared of making changes.
There’s a shadow owning me and it keeps on following wherever I lead and it’s hiding
behind me, there’s no one else who knows these scars still go so deep.
Shaking off the river, looking for the ocean mouth and the waves that knock me down just as
easily can lead me out.
Never mind that I’m losing my voice. Never mind that silence is my weapon of choice.
All these words I tidied away, safe for another day; tied in knots I’ll use them again.
They were never mine. They were never mine.
Oh, the anchors and the chains, the battles and the bruises or The sinners and the saints, the
winners and the losers; Who rules, who sais?
Underneath the surface, a stain, a tattoo and it serves as armour when I’m shielding my heart
from the truth.
Never mind that I’m losing my voice. Never mind that silence is my weapon of choice.
All these words I tidied away, safe for another day; tied in knots I’ll use them again.
They were never mine.
All these words I tidied away, safe for another day; tied in knots I’ll use them again.
They were never mine. They were never mine.

London at Midnight
[Judie Tzuke / Jeff Franzel]


So funny how my memory played tricks on me, standing there again in Clarges street;
bullet holes and childhood dreams fill the shadows where I’ve been, with longing and the
secrets I would keep.
But that was me back in another life, that was who I thought that I would be.
Last night I walked alone through Soho and down Piccadilly, freezing but alive.
Last night I heard you in the music, listening and breathing in my London at midnight.
London at midnight.
Rolling on the fates wheels have me spinning, I don’t know where the fallout’s going to be.
I’m holding on to all that’s precious, all that means the most; it’s like I’m carrying my heart
outside of me.
But that was all back in another world. One where you were still a part of me
Last night I walked alone through Soho and down Piccadilly, freezing but alive.
Last night I heard you in the music, listening and breathing in my London at midnight.
London at midnight; remembering in the half-light.
And there was everything yet to come. You and I were alone.
Last night I walked alone through Soho and down Piccadilly, freezing but alive, alive, alive.
Last night I heard you in the music, listening and breathing in my London at midnight.
London at midnight

Moon to my Sun
[Tzuke/ Nakas / Wahl]


I have no hold on you, try not to ask for too much.
But I’m closer to you, even though we don’t touch.
It’s all about the energy between us, got to keep safe from harm.
Don’t want to smother you with love, when I know if I chase, you might run.
Always dreaming, that you could be the moon to my sun.
Keep on reaching, I want to give my heart to someone.
These words you give to me, please don’t take them away.
I can breathe while you’re here, don’t want to make you stay.
It’s all about the energy between us, got to keep safe from harm.
Don’t want to smother you with love, when I know if I chase, you might run.
Always dreaming, that you could be the moon to my sun.
Keep on reaching, I want to give my heart to someone.
I should know better but with you, I can’t resist.
What a feeling, knowing what I could have missed.
Always dreaming, always dreaming, that you could be the moon to my sun.
Always dreaming that you could be the moon to my sun.
Keep on reaching, I want to give my heart to someone.
Should know better, but with you I can’t resist.
What a feeling, knowing what I could have missed.

Spider’s Web
[Tzuke/ Nakas / Wahl]


Like a spider’s web.
I try really hard to listen to you when I can because I really want to be the friend you think I am.
Don’t want to turn up any demons between us, because I know that friendship has to be
built on trust and I’m not sure I believe in yours.
Just give me something I can hang my hat on; somewhere I can rest my head awhile.
Won’t be so quick to give up on us because like a spider’s web I’m caught up in your smile.
I never could tell what secrets we held in our hands and if I seem distant it’s because
sometimes I am but I don’t see that you care that much for me.
Just give me something I can hang my hat on; somewhere I can rest my head awhile.
Won’t be so quick to give up on us, because like a spider’s web I’m caught up in your smile.
It makes me want to know everything because I don’t always understand the shape you’re in.
Because I feel I try to make peace with you and I.
Give me something. Somewhere I can.
Won’t be so quick to give up on us, because like a spider’s web I’m caught up in your smile.
Just give me something I can hang my hat on; somewhere I can rest my head awhile.
Won’t be so quick to give up on us, because like a spider’s web I’m caught up in your smile.
Like a spider’s web.
I’m caught up in your smile.
I’m caught up in your smile.
